YOURHEREBUSINESS happythanksgivingKids say the darndest things about Turkey Daypage A8Ed Barreto is no slave to convention where soccer, the game thats virtually etched into his DNA, is concerned. In fact, with all the confidence of a Wild West gunslinger, the Naples-based soccer coach and consultant is seeking challengers in order to prove the superiority of his patented system for playing the game where it matters most: on the soccer pitch. Mr. Barreto will back up his come-one, come-all dare with a makeshift squad assembled for the match and coached in his self-devised system that borrows heavily from an unexpected source: basketball. However, there is one significant proviso for anyone considering accepting the challenge. Anybody whos got the guts to play me, come on in, says Mr. Barreto, a retired Collier County teacher. But you have to have $10,000, because Im putting in $10,000, winner takes all. Im the best in the world. I take second place to no one and Im ready to prove it any time they want to. Mr. Barreto says he played 10 challenge matches against local challengers in 2012, winning all but one, using players assembled from recreational leagues around Collier County.

Trey Radel, who hails from Floridas District 19 as everyone in the United States now knows except ivory-billed woodpeckers. Reports of his arrest for cocaine buys in Washington, D.C. in a hot-spot tavern on cushy DuPont Circle even reached international media outlets last week, along with images of the congressmans pasty, partypocked, 37-year-old countenance of contrition. Unfortunately, Rep. Radels bust has been the fodder of such centerpiece comedians and pundits as Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, too.But none of them have revealed the real reasons for this American tragedy. So let me do so before the sun sets over the yardarm of Washingtons hippest joints, where even now professional pushers known as bartenders are injecting the addicts lining the brass rail with alcohol, of course. And possibly with a few other things. The American standard (and Im not talking toilets) has always been e pluribus unum. Out of many, one. And once again, one humbled U.S. congressman has zipped right back out of the many, flying into rehab after only 10 months inside the beltway. He looked like a sharp foul ball hit just outside the thirdbase line on the first pitch. No, it wasnt a fastball. Or even a curveball. It was an 8 ball. Lord knows, alcohol is a drug and if youre a communion-taking Catholic, as is Rep. Radel, sometimes its the Lord, too. Go figure. Caffeine is a drug. Sugar is a drug, sort of, but not one as potent as money or applause or Facebook praise from more than five friends every time you post a picture of your pink-ribboned dog just back from the spa.The sound of a womans voice, that woman you love thats a drug. The way your kid looks at you when you do something right: a drug. Having sex 12 times a week? Addiction central, honey. Let me mention, too, that every time you use work as an excuse not to do something important, such as walking on the beach at dawn, youre mainlining the cultures most revered drug.Man, she really works hard. Or, Hes such a hard worker, hes always at the office.Get help, dude. Yes, cocaine is illegal and work is not, even though it should be. So what? Marrying the person you love is illegal in a lot of places, too. When it comes to Rep. Radel, I dont give a damn what that SOD, which rhymes with SOB, puts in his body. SOD: Son of a (funeral) Director. Im not his mother. Or his wife, yet another TV newscaster who married yet another fast talker.But I do care about this: Can our leaders sidestep narcissism, avoid hypocrisy, duck the urge to be self-righteous and didactic, show compassion and courage, and demonstrate some vague appreciation for the truth?Honor and grace are everything in this national conversation about political values. A politician is not a lobbyist, after all. Not a salesman, not an entrepreneur, not a carnival barker, not a Catholic or Protestant or Jew or member of VFW Post Wham-BamThank You-Maam not first.A politician here is an American leader, like a pregnant woman is an American mother. She chose the responsibility (we hope), so she has to live by a higher standard for the length of her term, at least. That hasnt changed since George Washington turned down an offer from senior staff officers to make him a king, one of the greatest moments in the history of American leadership. And Washington didnt sit around his tent swigging brandy 237 years ago as the Christmas of 1776 approached, either, while his men froze on the banks of the Delaware River outside. So he would never have voted to force drug tests on a bunch of miserable beggars seeking food while he went out and did drugs himself. No, sir. If they cant lead, I dont blame them, and I hope you dont, either. I just want them to stay out of public life. I dont want them to be politicians. Instead, I want them to be privaticians, like I am or you may be. And I suppose if they have to they can be morticians, like Radels old man. For Rep. Radel, this isnt about alcohol or cocaine, at bottom. Its about growing up as a morticians son. Just imagine: Your dad is always burying the bodies. Hes always making mortality look better than it is. And every night he comes home smelling like embalming fluid hell, hes got the stuff all over his hands. Hes sitting there at the dinner table and he says, Trey? Eat your vegetables. Then he points to them and flutters two or three fingers. What do you do? Well obviously, you do cocaine. And alcohol lots of it. And even after youre arrested, you try to hide the bodies just like your old man. You go to fundraising events and you chest thump and you make reality look better than it is.Not cool.Mostly, I want our leaders to show a breathtaking reverence for the honor Americans have bestowed upon them with votes. That does not mean waving the flag and showing up at 10 events on Veterans Day. That does not mean mouthing platitudes about rugged American individualism, or the values of our forefathers (Ive always hated that word. It sounds too much like foreskins).It does not mean getting teary-eyed and falling down in a red-white-and-blue trance while muttering lock-and-load at the mere mention of the Second Amendment.The Constitution was written by slave holders, after all, and no women allowed. So it aint pristine. But what distinguishes those bone-headed Revolutionary tea partiers of once-upon-atime from the current Florida crop of boneheads is this: They were trying to do better. They were trying to look out for people who were not as rich or as smart or as successful or just plain as lucky as they were, with their Monticellos and Mount Vernons and Montpeliers (James Madisons Virginia home). Is that what Rep. Trey Radel has been doing, with his Montcocaine? b y R G b

Kennedy, at least according to conventional standards for such things. President Obama has always been a brand as much as a politician, one that has been perceived as sleek, smart and up to date. Then along came Its failure to launch is a signal event in the long political battle over Obamacare and perhaps an inflection point in the presidents image. Its hard to maintain a sense of truly being on the cutting edge of change when you cant build a website. President Obamas cool was, in part, an artifact of world-class marketing. Graphic designer Michael Bierut writes in the book Designing Obama (yes, theres such a book) of how impressed he was watching Senator Obama rallies in 2008: The awe-inspiring part was the way all the signs were faithfully, and beautifully, set in Hoefler & Frere-Joness typeface Gotham. If only the folks at Health and Human Services were consumed with such attention to detail.The Obama teams technological prowess reinforced the sense that it owned the future. Except it had no bearing on how the president would or could run the government. Weve now learned that the president doesnt know how to make a government website work, or know to check to see if its going to work. Neither he and I are technology geeks, Vice President Joe Biden explained the other day. When selling the prospective glories of his website, President Obama compared it to Travelocity and Amazon, leaders in a private sector that is highly flexible and reactive and where failure means extinction. Government is nothing like that. It never has been and never will be. It is plodding and bureaucratic, beholden to political imperatives and often stuck in practices that make no sense. A presidential campaign can hire whomever it wants without taking account of procurement rules or any other bureaucratic impediment. It is a private entity subject to the laws of competition. It exists more in the world of Travelocity than At the end of the day, the president has been a dazzling frontman for what is, in essence, the Department of Motor Vehicles. He has created a glittering image of hope and change that has little to do with a rumbling, ramshackle federal government that is still largely built along mid-20th-century lines. Instead of imbuing government with his sense of cool, he has been left apologizing for a government failure that profoundly runs against the zeitgeist. We celebrate the Internet entrepreneurs who can take an idea and, with pluck and creativity, make it into a reality that we cant live without. It is one of the ironies of the Obama Era that the same kids whose lives are defined by a dizzying array of endlessly changing choices have voted for a president invested in protecting a government that embodies the opposite. It may be that after five years, they are beginning to get a clue. A new Quinnipiac poll shows young people disapproving of the president 54 percent to 36 percent. The image was that fine logo and typeface; the reality is Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly F t w d e f richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Corporate lobbyists flood Warsaw climate talksThe United Nations is holding this years climate conference in Warsaw, a city steeped in history. Nicolaus Copernicus, the famous Polish astronomer who first posited that the Earth revolves around the sun and not vice versa, is celebrated here. The Frederic Chopin Airport is named for the brilliant composer who lived here. The pioneer in the science of radiation, Marie Curie, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize (she won two of them), was born here. Here also was the Warsaw Ghetto, one of the many awful hallmarks of the Holocaust, where hundreds of thousands of Jews were imprisoned before being shipped off to their deaths at Treblinka and other Nazi concentration camps. It was under the oppression of the German occupiers that the Jews of the Ghetto rose up, in a courageous act of self-defense. Later, inspired by the Ghetto uprising, the non-Jewish residents of Warsaw rose up as well and fought for two months before being crushed. By the end of World War II, 6 million Poles, half of them Jews, had been killed. Eighty-five percent of Warsaw was demolished. This is where the so-called COP 19 is being held, the 19th conference of parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the UNFCCC. Sequestered in the new National Stadium, thousands of negotiators from the bodys 198 member countries hurry through the temporary, canvas-walled corridors erected on the stadiums field, along with representatives of countless nongovernmental organizations and members of the press. This years meeting has a new feature: corporate sponsorship. This is perhaps the most corporate climate talks we have ever experienced ... not to say that previous ones havent had a large corporate influence, Pascoe Sabido told me. But whats different this time is the level of institutionalization, the degree to which the Polish government and the U.N., the UNFCCC, have welcomed this with open arms and have actively encouraged it. Mr. Sabido works with Corporate Europe Observatory, which published the pamphlet The COP 19 Guide to Corporate Lobbying: Climate Crooks and the Polish Governments Partners in Crime. Among them, Pascoe says, are General Motors, known for funding climate skeptic think tanks like the Heartland Institute in the U.S.; you have BMW, which is doing equal things in Europe, trying to weaken emission standards. LOTOS Group, the second-largest Polish petroleum corporation, has its logo emblazoned on the 11,000 tote bags handed out to delegates here. Poland, which gets 80 percent to 90 percent of its power from coal, hosted a parallel conference with the World Coal Association, called the International Coal and Climate Summit. UNFCCC chief Christiana Figueres enraged many climate activists by dignifying the coal conference with a keynote address. Outside the summit, Greenpeace activists in climbing gear hung from the Ministry of Economy with a huge banner, in the red and white of the Polish flag, stating Who Rules Poland: Coal Industry or the People? On the roof, others unfurled Who Rules the World? Fossil Fuel Industry or the People? On the plaza below, hundreds rallied against coal, arriving in a procession called Cough 4 Coal with two huge inflated lungs, signifying the destructive impact of coal on the atmosphere and human health. Back in the National Stadium, the negotiations were breaking down. WTF? activists shouted in unison. Wheres the finance? Wealthy countries had pledged financial support for poorer, developing countries to move to renewable energies (mitigation) and to prepare for the onslaught of climate change (adaptation). Oxfam estimates that to date this fund has raised only $7.6 billion, far short of the promised $30 billion to $100 billion. This is not charity; polluters should pay. The Philippines chief climate-change negotiator, Yeb Sano, spoke with me on the ninth day of his fast, which he started on the day COP 19 opened. The U.S., accounting for at least one-fourth of cumulative emissions, has a huge responsibility, a moral responsibility, to tackle climate change, not just to address it domestically, but also to be able to provide support for developing countries. Typhoon Haiyans destruction provides a grim backdrop to the negotiations in Warsaw. Yeb Sano learned that his brother survived only by seeing him on a news report, helping to collect the dead. The science is clear: With increasing temperatures, extreme weather events will become more frequent and more deadly. After Mr. Sano announced his fast in an emotional address to the plenary, several students silently walked with him as he exited, holding a banner commemorating the dead in the Philippines. For this spontaneous act of solidarity, they were banned from the climate proceedings, for a year. One of the banned, Clemence Hutin from Paris, told me, I dont understand why civil society isnt welcome here and corporations are. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

I just win every game, he says. And when you win every game, youre the best. Also, I have such a big mouth that everybody gets mad at me and they want to play me. A local tournament Mr. Barreto is also in the process of organizing a 10-month-long soccer tournament in Naples, with participating teams playing once a month. The champions grand prize would consist of tournament entry fees, which would be a minimum of $1,000 per team. He hopes to complete his festival planning by May, with play to begin next fall. Ultimately, Mr. Barreto, 77, would like to field a semi-pro team based in Naples. For that, he is soliciting sponsorships throughout the community. The semi-pro teams games would be community events dedicated to the leaders of the town, the old timers, people Ive worked with for the last 50 years like Joe Klimas (a long-time local sports announcer who died last year) and (the late) Father (Thomas J.) Goggin, former pastor of St. Ann Parish in Naples, he says. A Naples resident for 50 years, Mr. Barreto is a native of Sao Paolo in soccer-mad Brazil, where he first took up the sport at the age of 6, commencing what became a lifelong passion. He played the sport scholastically and at the semi-pro and professional levels before moving to the U.S. to attend college at Ashland University in Ohio. Ironically, Mr. Barreto views soccer as a very basic game and rather boring. I like American football a lot better, but I just happen to have a curse that I know soccer better than anything else in the world, he says. His patented system for soccer play encompasses both offensive and defense strategies, in the home teams zone or the oppositions. Mr. Barreto believes man-to-man is the most effective way to approach defense in soccer, rather than a zone defense, which is the norm today. Man-to-man can require more energy and effort, he says, but its more effective in limiting an opponents scoring opportunities. On offense, its fast-break time, a la basketball, to draw offside penalties on the opponent and maximize the number of high-percentage shots on goal. If the possession of the ball occurs in their zone, players are expected to sprint into the opponents zone ASAP to mount an offensive attack. His attack strategy runs counter to conventional approaches because it always centers on the players taking the same positions as they would for corner kicks, with five of the 11 players positioned in the penalty box that fronts the goal area. So the ball is on their side, he explains. Even if we lose control of it, I dont care because everybodys covered and were playing on their side. Its a system Mr. Barreto has been teaching in seminars in the U.S. and Europe for about eight years, one he describes as the culmination of his experience in the sport, as knowledge gained through teaching the sciences and physical education for 35 years. Its simple, he insists. Stay with your man, and when you have the ball, youre on offense, and when you lose the ball, youre on defense. Hes also written a book on his system, Coach in the Raw: Soccer, the Boring Game and How to Fix It. Mr. Barreto views his system of play as a inheritance for his wife, Sandra, their three daughters and their grandchildren. The family operates The Neighborhood Caf at the Cove Inn in Crayton C ove, and all have extensive sports backgrounds. My kids know the system as well as I do, he says. Theyre going to take over my system when Im gone. Thats what I want to leave for them is my system of play.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 WEEK OF NOV. 28-DEC. 4, 2013 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEFamily of man The notorious white separatist Craig Cobb is soliciting like-skinned people to move to his tiny town of Leith, N.D. (pop. 16), to create a deluxe Caucasian enclave, but at the urging of a black TV host submitted to a DNA test in November to prove his lineage and turned up 14 percent black (Sub-Saharan African). He has vowed to try other DNA tests before confirming those results. Bobby Harper, previously Leiths only black resident, was gleeful: I knew there was one other black person in town. (In midNovember, Mr. Cobb was charged, along with an associate, with seven counts of terrorism for walking menacingly through Leith wielding a long gun.) Government in action The Environmental Protection Agency, already revealed in June to have allowed a contractor to maintain taxpayer-funded man caves (TVs, appliances, couches, videos, etc.) hidden away in a Washington, D.C.-area warehouse, made the news again during the government shutdown in October when soup with a 1997 expiration date was found during the shutdown in an EPA employees refrigerator. Furthermore, in September, former high-level EPA executive John Beale pleaded guilty to defrauding the agency of $900,000 in salary, expenses and bonuses dating back to the 1990s by claiming work orders (including secret projects for the CIA) that no one at EPA appears ever to have tried to verify. In October, Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro created a Vice Ministry of Supreme Social Happiness to coordinate the welfare programs begun by the late President Hugo Chavez. Critics charged, however, that there is much to be unhappy about, given the countrys annual rate of inflation (near 50 percent), and an Associated Press dispatch quoted one critic who said she would be happy enough if only stores were not constantly out of milk and toilet paper. (Another skeptic said he looked forward to maybe a Vice Ministry of Beer). The U.S. government has engaged in some legendarily wasteful projects, but leaders in Chinas Yungai village (pop. 3,683), in Hunan province, have surely raised the bar for epic squander after borrowing the equivalent of $2.4 million and building an impressive sevenstory government headquarters but with 96 still-unlooked-out front windows because there is no activity beyond the first floor. According to an October London Daily Telegraph report, the only occupants are the village governments eight employees. Though many people might agree with blind musician Stevie Wonder that it is crazy to let people such as him carry guns, federal and state laws seem ambiguous, according to a lengthy analysis of Iowas supplied by the Des Moines Register in September. Some Iowa sheriffs believe that federal antidiscrimination law limits their discretion (though they can deny permits for lack of physical or mental ability to handle the gun). The National Federation of the Blind generally trusts its members never to use guns recklessly, a spokesman said, and blind Iowa activist Michael Barber emphasized his right. You take it out and point and shoot, he said, and I dont necessarily think eyesight is necessary. ... For me, the inspiration is just to see if I run into any difficulties. Great art Leandro Granato, 27, said that he discovered, as a kid in Argentina, that liquids sucked up through his nose could then be squirted out of his eye and an art career was born. News sites reported in October that Mr. Granatos eye paintings of ink colors, splattered out as tears on canvas in various motifs (from up to 1 pints of ink each), are offered for sale at a top-end price of the equivalent of $2,400 each. (Huffington Posts story also reminded readers that Chilean artist Carina Ubeda is another who uses her body functions as a medium specifically, her menstrual blood, which she employed in the form of 90 used sanitary napkins arranged in a hoop featuring an apple, symbolizing ovulation. Her June show ran in Quillota, Chile.) Police report Rachel Gossett blew a .216 alcohol reading in Loganville, Ga., in November, but that was probably a formality after an officer witnessed her attempt to put a cheeseburger from a Waffle Shop onto her foot as if it were a shoe. And Rashad Williams, 38, was charged with DUI in Atlanta in October after he crashed through the front of a Walgreens drugstore and then, according to a witness, calmly exited his vehicle (which was sticking halfway into the building) and resumed drinking next door at the Anchor Bar. Round up the usual suspect: Indicted for rape in August in Hamilton County, Tenn.: Mr. John Allan Raper, 19. (Other recent miscreants were Mr. Batman Suparman, 23, convicted in Singapore in November of housebreaking and theft, and Mr. Bamboo Flute Blanchard, 18, who was arrested in June in Gainesville, and accused of trying to stab his father for an unreported provocation although one possible motive suggests itself.) Sheriffs deputy Darrell Mathis of Newton County, Ga. (30 miles east of Atlanta), a five-year veteran, was arrested in September and charged with selling marijuana locally from his squad car, in uniform and apparently without inhibition. A confidential informant, unnerved by Mr. Mathis alleged brazenness, convinced FBI agents in April 2013 to do a by-the-book sting (with which Mr. Mathis, of course, naively cooperated, according to bureau affidavits). In their final meeting before the arrest, for example, Mr. Mathis took pains to assure the agents: Dont worry. Im on your side. He was reportedly enthusiastic about the stings plan to run marijuana and cocaine from Alabama to North Carolina.

The mornings main sponsor was PNC Wealth Management, with supporting sponsorship from Cummings & Lockwood and the Conservancys Planned Giving Committee. Conservancy President and CEO Rob Moher announced that the 2014 Eagle Award will be presented to the Allyn Family: Lew and Dawn Allyn, Bill and Penny Allyn and Peter and Elsa Soderberg. The official award presentation will take place at the annual Magic Under the Mangroves gala Thursday, March 6, at the Conservancy. The Conservancys highest honor, the Eagle Award is presented in recognition of an individual or groups efforts to protect the natural environment and quality of life in Southwest Florida. The Allyn family has a long history of involvement with the Conservancy and its environmental stewardship efforts. The grandfather of Lew and Bill Allyn and Elsa Soderberg was one of the original purchasers of Noahs Island in Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. William Allyn Sr. was also a boat captain at the Conservancy. His children and grandchildren have continued to support environmental conservation efforts, most recently with the establishment of the William F. and Sonya G. Allyn Endowment for Veterinary Wildlife Care, allowing the Conservancy of Southwest Florida to hire veterinarian P.J. Dieschel and enhance care of injured native animals. As we enter our 50th anniversary season, the word legacy comes to mind the legacy that has been entrusted to us and the legacy that we will leave to those that follow, Mr. Moher said in making the Eagle Award announcement. The Allyns are a remarkable family infused with passion and commitment for the environment. Their legacy continues to inspire and motivate us. Previous Eagle Award winners are: Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, Clyde Butcher, Kathy Spalding, Dorothy Blair, Lavern Gaynor, Ellin Goetz, the Conservancy Saving Southwest Florida Capital Campaign Cabinet and, most recently, six local veterinarians for their years of volunteer care of injured native wildlife.About the ConservancyConservancy of Southwest Florida began in 1964 when community leaders came together to defeat a proposed Road to Nowhere and spearheaded the acquisition and protection of Rookery Bay. The grassroots organization focuses on Southwest Floridas critical environmental issues with a mission to protect the regions water, land and wildlife. This is accomplished through the combined efforts of environmental education, science, policy and wildlife rehabilitation. The von Arx Wildlife Hospital treats in excess of 3,200 injured, sick and orphaned animals each year and releases about half of them back into their native habitats. Entrance to the Conservancy campus is at 1495 Smith Preserve Way, just south of The Naples Zoo off Goodlette-Frank Road.

Holocaust Museum & Education Center welcomes German consul from Miami ELLA NAYORenayor@ oridaweekly.comConsul General Juergen Borsch of the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Miami visited the Naples-based Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida recently to learn about the 13-year-old museum and its exhibits as well as to share his support for its efforts to teach the community and beyond about the atrocities of the Holocaust. Mr. Borsch was accompanied by his wife, Iris Borsch, along with Norma Henning, Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany for Southwest Florida, and Jim Hollar, president of the German American Business Council of Southwest Florida. I think its extremely important, Mr. Borsch said about the mission of the museum and education center. They need to know what has happened. Ms. Snyder described the exhibits and the discussed programs held at the museum as Mr. Borsch walked slowly thr ough rooms filled with donated items of the Nazi era and the Holocaust, including a red and black Nazi flag draped near stark black and white photos of Holocaust victims, concentration camps and SS officers in uniform. Many of the exhibits tell the stories of Southwest Florida residents who survived the Holocaust or participated in the liberation of Nazi-occupied Europe. Mr. Borsch spoke with docent Lorie Mayer about her experiences during Nazi Germanys reign in Europe. The 87-yearsaid she witnessed civilians being shot along the train platform. She also said that though the Holocaust cannot be undone, the efforts shown by the German government since have been hopeful and encouraging in building a bridge between the Germany and Jewish communities. Mr. Borschs visit to the museum and visits by other dignitaries inspire Ms. Mayer, whose father lost his business to the Nazis and spent time in a concentration camp. I think its very meaningful, she said. At the end of the tour, Ms. Snyder read the words near an exhibit of resistors during the Holocaust. There is hope in the midst of darkness, she said.

Aesthetic and Reconstructive Facial Surgery Aesthetic Breast Surgery Body Contouring Dermatologic Surgery Call 1-800-591-DERM to schedule an appointment Drug may help alcoholics beat their addictionsThe generic anticonvulsant medication gabapentin shows promise as an effective treatment for alcohol dependence, based on the results of a 150-patient clinical trial of the medication. Conducted by scientists supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, part of the National Institutes of Health, the study found that alcohol dependent patients using gabapentin were more likely to stop drinking or refrain from heavy drinking than those taking placebo. Gabapentin is already widely prescribed to treat pain conditions and epilepsy. Gabapentin adds to the list of existing medications that have shown promise in treating alcohol dependence, said Kenneth R. Warren, Ph.D., acting director of the NIAAA. We will continue to pursue research to expand the menu of treatment options available for alcoholism in the hopes of reaching more people. A report of the study, led by Barbara J. Mason, Ph.D., of The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., appears in the Nov. 4 edition of JAMA Internal Medicine. Ms. Mason and her colleagues randomly assigned alcohol dependent patients to receive a moderate or high dose of gabapentin (900 milligrams or 1,800 milligrams) or a placebo. During the 12-week treatment, patients receiving the 1,800-milligram dose were twice as likely to refrain from heavy drinking (45 percent vs. 23 percent) and four times as likely to stop drinking altogether (17 percent vs. 4 percent), compared to placebo. Participants receiving gabapentin also reported improved sleep and mood and fewer alcohol cravings. The medication appeared to be well tolerated with few side effects. Participants who received the 900-milligram dose of gabapentin saw similar but less dramatic improvements in their drinking levels, sleep, mood, and cravings when compared to the 1,800-milligram dose. The results of the study on gabapentin showed similar or greater positive outcomes w hen compared to existing FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration)-approved treatments for alcohol dependence, said Ms. Mason, Pearson Family Professor and co-director of the Pearson Center for Alcoholism and Addiction Research at TSRI, who led the new research. Plus, its the only medication shown to improve sleep and mood in people who are quitting or reducing their drinking, and its already widely used in primary care thats an appealing combination. Alcohol-use disorders affect about 18 million people in the United States and have an estimated societal cost of $225 billion each year, primarily from lost productivity, but also from health care and property damage costs. Currently, three medications are approved by the FDA for treating alcohol dependence: disulfram, an older drug that blocks the metabolism of alcohol and causes nausea; acamprosate, which helps support abstinence and can ease symptoms of withdrawal; and naltrexone, which can help people reduce heavy drinking. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, part of the National Institutes of Health, is the primary U.S. agency for conducting and supporting research on the causes, consequences, prevention, and treatment of alcohol abuse, alcoholism, and alcohol problems. NIAAA also disseminates research findings to general, professional, and academic audiences. Additional alcohol research information and publications are available at HEALTHY LIVING Celebrating a stellar team of radiology professionalsNCH recently celebrated Radiology Technologist Week to recognize those professionals who touch almost every patient entering the health-care system. Dr. Park Hand, chairman of radiology, shares a recent story that demonstrates our capabilities:Last week, the stroke team at NCH, led by Dr. Mazen AbuAwad, took advantage of the new state-of-the-art tools and resources in the Radiology Department to engage in a case of intra-arterial embolectomy and reperfusion for acute large vessel stroke in a stroke patient. An elderly woman came to the Emergency Department with clinical signs of large artery stroke syndrome. The initial CT exam revealed blockage of a major artery that feeds a large portion of the brain. Using the latest CT perfusion technology, the team confirmed that there was a substantial region of brain tissue at risk of dying if adequate blood perfusion was not restored quickly The team moved forward with intra-arterial stroke embolectomy, using the latest clot-removal technology, the Trevo Pro Retrieval System. The clot was successfully removed without complications, and within hours of the procedure, the patient regained function in her arm and leg. Such teamwork is critical in dealing with acute stroke patients. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause of serious longterm disability. Ischemic stroke, which represents more than 85 percent of strokes, occurs when a blockage or clot develops in one of the arteries supplying blood to the brain. Major strokes in which a blood clot lodges in one of the larger vessels of the brain have a poor prognosis if not treated quickly. The goal of intervention is to remove the clot from the vessel in the brain, thereby restoring blood flow to the brain. NCH radiologists work with the most sophisticated equipment available. Latest generation devices, like the Trevo Pro, offer physicians and patients new options for stroke intervention. Along with our new 64-slice CT scanner, which is faster and uses lower radiation to produce better images, we have added a new MRI for larger patients and a new fluoroscopy room. This winter, we will add another state-of-the-art biplane room to increase capabilities for all our interventional radiologists. Our teamwork and technology in treating strokes echoes our 13-year-old, Code Save-A-Heart program, which has lowered the chances of dying from a heart attack in Collier County by about 50 percent. Cathy Scranton, lead diagnostic technologist at our downtown campus, along with Susan Nigro, lead CT technologist, and registered technologists Brooke Langdon and Jerry Chess, are representative of our team of 95 compassionate professionals who produce radiographic images for the NCH Healthcare System. They and all of their colleagues have truly changed the way we practice medicine. And for that, we are all eternally grateful. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

Reserve yours now by calling Brian Follweiler at 261-5405 or visiting Temporary artificial heart stabilizes teen, allows organ recovery as she awaits transplant THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAA 16-year-old girl in severe multiorgan system and heart failure is the first in Florida to receive the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart, the only approved mechanical device that eliminates the symptoms and source of heart failure. University of Florida Health surgeons implanted the device in early June in an effort to stabilize Lexi Henderson of Sanford so she would be healthy enough to survive transplant when a donor heart becomes available. UF Health Shands Hospital is the first in Florida to become a SynCardia-certified center. The SynCardia and UF Health teams switched Lexi to the Freedom Portable Driver, a wearable power supply for the SynCardia heart, on Nov. 20. The driver is the first wearable power supply for the SynCardia heart and is undergoing a Food and Drug Administration investigational device exemption clinical study in the United States. UF Health cardiothoracic surgeon Mark Bleiweis and his team removed Lexis own failing atria and ventricles and implanted the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart, which is powered by an external machine nicknamed Big Blue. At 418 pounds and the size of a washing machine, Big Blue provides pneumatic power to the heart, but it isnt conducive to patient mobility. The portable driver will allow Lexi to walk around the hospital more freely instead of being confined mostly to the pediatric intensive care unit. When Lexi arrived at UF Health Shands Childrens Hospital in mid-May, she thought she just had a very bad stomach virus. Shed had relentless stomach pains and had been throwing up for several days. It was much worse than that, however. She was diagnosed with severe cardiac allograft vasculopathy, a condition in which the coronary arteries are severely damaged by risk factors associated with a heart transplant. Lexi received her first heart transplant at UF Health Shands Hospital in 2007, after she developed dilated cardiomyopathy (an enlarged and weakened heart) for an unknown reason. In May this year, she was in severe heart failure again; her heart could no longer pump enough blood throughout her body to keep her other organs functioning. Her body was shutting down. Lexi was in deep trouble, with multiorgan dysfunction, Dr. Bleiweis says. While UF Health offers pediatric and adult cardiac patients a variety of ventricular assist devices, the primary devices for children are the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart and the Berlin Heart. In 2006, UF Health Shands was the first in Florida to use the Berlin Heart, an external device specifically designed for children that connects to the patients own heart. The SynCardia heart was a better choice for Lexi, who is nearly adultsized, because it can pump more blood than the Berlin Heart. Without devices like the SynCardia heart, there are limited options for patients like Lexi as they await a transplant, Dr. Bleiweis says. We choose a machine to help the heart because we feel medication alone wont be enough for them to survive until transplant, he says. With the SynCardia heart, Lexis other organs have completely recovered. Shes now an excellent candidate for transplant. Bahati

Debra Haffner, cofounder and president of the Religious Institute, in a discussion of Religion, Spirituality and Sexuality: Whats the Connection? as a fundraiser starting at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Waldorf Astoria Naples. Since its founding in 2001, the Religious Institute has emerged as a national leadership organization working at the intersection of sexuality and religion. The organization provides clergy, congregations and denominational bodies with technical assistance on addressing sexuality and reproductive health, and assists sexual and reproductive health organizations in addressing religious issues and developing outreach to faith communities. Prior to founding the Religious Institute, Rev. Haffner was CEO of the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States. During her tenure from 1988-2000, she created the Religious Declaration on Sexual Morality, Justice, and Healing; the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education; the Commission on Adolescent Sexual Health; and the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education. Prior to joining SIECUS, she served as the director of education for Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington; and as a special assistant in the U.S. Public Health Service. She is the author or co-author of six books, including the awardwinning From Diapers to Dating: A Parents Guide to Raising Sexually Healthy Children, which has been translated into 10 languages. An ordained Unitarian Universal-ist minister, she is the endorsed community minister with the Unitarian Church in Westport, Conn. Rev. Haffner has a master of divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary, a master of public health degree from Yale University School of Medicine and an undergraduate degree from Wesleyan University. In 1996-97, she was a research fellow at the Yale Divinity School. She is currently a visiting professor at Union Theological Seminary and the Pacific School of Religion, and previously taught at Yale Divinity School and MeadvilleLombard Seminary. Tickets to her presentation are $75 per person, $40 of which is a tax-deductible donation to Planned Parenthood of Collier County.

To help those people understand the law and determine if they are eligible and, if so, if they qualify for financial aid, Planned Parenthood of Collier County hosts an ACA navigator who offers free counseling every Wednesday morning at the Naples PPCC clinic. Planned Parenthood of Collier County will be a vital part of this new health-care landscape, Stephanie Marshall, president and CEO, says. We support the ACA and the preventive health benefits it offers to women, and we applaud its efforts to expand access to care that so many of our uninsured residents have gone without. The open enrollment period for the newly created health insurance exchanges is through March 31. The law requires most Americans to have health insurance through their jobs, government plans such as Medicare or the exchanges by 2014. Planned Parenthood of Collier County has offered reproductive, preventive and womens health care for 40 years regardless of patients ability to pay. That commitment to care doesnt change with the new law. But for those who obtain coverage, this new insurance means access to services beyond what Planned Parenthood offers, including chronic disease management, hospital care and immunizations. Planned Parenthood of Collier County is an affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. PPCC health centers are at 1425 Creech Road in Naples and at 419 N. First St. in Immokalee. The ACA navigator is at the Naples clinic on Wednesday mornings. Counseling is free, but appointments are recommended. To make an appointment or for more information, call 262-0301 or visit HAFFNER

Expires 5/31/14 PET TALESCat scentsA felines sense of smell is as powerful as a dogs, but used for different purposes BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickHow important is scent to cats? More than you might think. No one has ever been silly enough to try to put them to work finding people or substances by scent, but cats have a keen sense of smell and rely on it heavily. Unlike dogs, however, who have developed an array of scent-related careers to help people, cats use their sense of smell for more personal endeavors: to establish territory and determine where they are, to identify each other and to whet their appetites. Odor is crucial to a cats feeling of comfort in the home. Cats use scent to mark territory and make a place their own. Their sebaceous glands located primarily on the lips, chin, between the eyes and ears, at the base of the tail and around the anus secrete sebum, an oily substance that is odorless to us but contains scent markers that are meaningful to cats. Urine and feces also contain these scent markers. When you see your cat rubbing his face against your body or an object such as the refrigerator (where the food comes from), hes laying down an invisible but scented token of possession, a signal to other cats that this person, place or thing belongs to him. Urine marking is a more odorous, and less-pleasing-to-humans, means of accomplishing the same thing. Cats also use scent to identify and greet each other. They begin by sniffing faces and then rears. Think of it as the feline version of a handshake, and dont be offended when your cat presents his butt for you to sniff. Hes just being polite in a catly sort of way. Odor is also strongly linked to appetite. A cat who has lost her sense of smell will be uninterested in food. Thats why feline nasal infections can be more serious than they might seem. Cats can quickly go downhill if they refuse to eat. Entice them by offering stinky canned food or warming their food before giving it to them. (Stir it well to make sure there arent any hot spots that could burn the mouth.) Cats also have an odd ability to taste scents, with the help of some unusual anatomical features. They have two small air passages known as the nasopalatine ducts, which are located in the roof of the mouth just behind the upper front teeth (incisors). Air in the mouth passes through the ducts, which lead to the vomeronasal, or Jacobsons, organ in the nasal cavity. If youve ever noticed your cat give something a good sniff, wrinkle his nose and open his mouth with the lips slightly retracted, youre seeing the vomeronasal organ in action. That expression, as if hes smelling something unpleasant, is called the flehmen response. It occurs when cats encounter urine or other odors that provide information to them. Nerves run between the VNO and the area of the brain that controls sexual behavior, and scientists believe that the flehmen response helps the cat to draw in and sample more of the odor. Its seen primarily in male cats and may assist them in determining a females reproductive status. Females are more likely to display the flehmen response when sniffing their newborn kittens. Any cat may flehmen in response to the scent of catnip, the urine of other cats or to any unfamiliar smell. Like humans, cats find certain odors to be repulsive, but their idea of what smells bad isnt the same as ours. Orange peel and mothballs are on their do not sniff list. Which odors do cats love best? Catnip, of course, and, strangely, garlic and onion. And if you are lucky, your cats favorite scent is you. A cats sensitive nose plays a role in communication, reproduction and appetite.

I am normally so festive, so gay, so filled with joie de vivre and sparkle especially this time of year. But, alas, I recently heard a new term and its put me in a dismal funk. Brown Thursday. How blissful it was to have never heard the phrase. But now the Interwebs have unfortunately enlightened me. Brown Thursday is the day before what is apparently the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday. Most of us know Brown Thursday as Thanksgiving. You know, that little national holiday when we break bread with loved ones and express our gratitude for all we have, no matter how much or how little? Yeah, that holiday the one I thought was kind of a big deal or used to be. Last week in this column, I lamented the fact that were racing from Halloween straight to Christmas morning with nothing in between. But I didnt mean we were totally skipping Thanksgiving to go Christmas shopping. Thats just gross. But apparently, this phenomenon has been going on for several years. It used to be that Black Friday started around dawn the day after Thanksgiving. Of course, there were always those insane people who camped outside of Best Buy. Then the stores started opening earlier and earlier until they were opening Thanksgiving evening. I thought that was bad enough, but now many of the nations biggest retail big box stores are opening at 6 a.m. on Brown Thursday, aka the holiday formerly known as Thanksgiving. Dont get me wrong. Yall know I love to shop, and I especially love to shop for bargains. I can easily spend hours upon hours in the likes of Ross Dress For Less moving from dresses to housewares to things I dont need at all like nightgowns with cats on them or purple leotards that are 20 years too young for me and look ridiculous. Ive been known to go into a Ross trance where I completely forget all sense of time and space. Ill walk in around lunchtime and when I walk out with bags full of clothes and yoga DVDs and bath towels, its dark outside and Im confused and disoriented yet strangely giddy. So, yeah shopping is my thing. But not on Thanksgiving. And while I know folks need to work and make money, I kind of hate to see them working on Thanksgiving, especially when they have to deal with crazy, greedy shoppers fighting over X-Boxes and what-not. If youre looking for me on Brown Thursday or Black Friday, youll find me on my sofa, in a food coma, watching Its A Wonderful Life the way the pilgrims meant it to be. Holiday happeningsOn a good-news note, there are so many fabulous festivities coming up around town that you wont have time to shop. On Tuesday, Dec. 5, theres the first-ever Grand Car Menorah Parade & Festival. Chabad Naples and Naples Luxury Imports will parade fancy cars (think Rolls Royce, Bentley, Maserati) with sparkly menorah hood ornaments down U.S. 41 to Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South before returning to Chabad Naples for a family-friendly grand finale.

But its true. Mrs. Costa, a sharply articulate, Cape Coral-based entrepreneur who arranges the delivery of promotional products to businesses all over the United States and the world, is worried about the price of shipping fuel, and politics in Yemen, and Chinese aggression in the Sea of Japan. What does that have to do with an appealing FGCU car decal or with embroidered apparel, awards, business gifts, giveaways or recognition and incentive-program hallmarks? Everything, as it turns out which is also true for Bill Fuller, owner of Endless Specialties based in Naples, as well as Barbara and Jerry Durham at Unforgettable Promotions, based in Charlotte County. There are others working from the Southwest Florida coast, too, and together they supply most of us with the cultural artifacts we use, enjoy and find amusing or precious, almost as an afterthought. We are middle people, explains Mrs. Costa. We buy from suppliers sometimes from the manufacturers, and sometimes our suppliers buy from manufacturers and we develop identities for businesses. It takes a savvy flair for understanding the personality of a business, and a willingness and talent to think internationally. If Im buying a coffee mug from a Florida supplier, for example, its made overseas. So we represent thousands of suppliers across the country in drink wear, corporate wear, to all the writing instruments and awards then were the go-between with those folks and usually the end user.

Behind the rhetoric is a recognition that the worlds financial crisis is far from over and that the rise in equity markets is masking the underlying problems. The solution? Spur U.S. GDP growth by forcing spending personal and corporate and force this spending by a policy of negative interest rates and moving to a cashless society. These drastic measures are being lauded as worthy of further consideration by some and already embraced by others; suffice to say, internationally respected economists and world leaders and central bankers are paying heed to this counsel. By others, it is dismissed as more of the emperers new clothes. Larry Summers is the economist promoting this new monetary thinking. For most citizens, the first question is: Who is Larry Summers? He is the former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury under President Obama. He was under consideration to become the next U.S. Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank. Ultimately, he dropped out of the Fed race, leaving an open path for Janet Yellen, who has since been confirmed as the new chairwoman. Mr. Summers is a not a monetary conservative in absolute terms but, relative to Ms. Yellen, he is hawkish. Clearly, he is not Republican. As of this summer, his economic thinking did not play well to President Barack Obamas game plan, either. Specifically, he was not an advocate of the current Fed policy of low rates and neverending Quantitative Easings, or QEs. When his thinking about how he would steer the Fed into higher interest rates became known, the bond market went haywire: interpreting his potential Fed policies to be negative for bonds. In his Nov. 8 speech to the IMF, he characterized the most pressing economic problem to be, If another recession were to hit now or in the next couple of years, the Fed will have even less power to combat it since rates are already at zero. (Business Insider, Nov. 17, 2013) The multiple monetary quandaries are as follows: 1. Recent years fiscal policy has been ineffective (or nonexistent) to stimulate the economy. Recent fiscal policy has turned economically repressive to the extent there has been increased taxation. 2. Politicians/leaders have abdicated their economic role to the Fed, which is charged with the responsibility to use monetary policy to bring about full employment. The Feds ability to spur employment is based on the assumption that interest rates are sufficed as a stimulative tool. In the past, a large cut in interest rates by the Fed (cut to a lower level but not cut to zero rates) would stimulate capital investment and spending; resultingly, the economy, as best measured by GDP, would grow at hefty rates and employment would improve. 3. The QEs have helped recapitalize the banks and have lowered rates, bringing gains to bond holders, but it has not repaired the economy. 4. After several years of near-zero Fed funds rates and QEs, employment lingers in the 7 to 8 percent range. At best, this is an optimistic statistic, in that it excludes all those who have dropped out of the labor market after not finding a job. 5. While the equity market continues to move ahead, it ignores the fact that the monetary repair kit of the Fed is now absent the tools used in prior recessions and many global partners have adopted the same tool kit. If a recession hit us again, the Fed would have little it could do as it has done all that it can. (WWFS Blog, Aug. 23, 2013, Equity Investors: Be Not Lulled) If a recession hit again, China has less wiggle room to spur the global growth engine as it did in 2009, 2010, etc. Mr. Summers poses the current problem to be: The natural interest rate where investment and savings bring about full employment is now negative. Meaning that to get companies and people to spend and make capital investment would require a disincentive for them to hold onto their cash. Negative interest rates would be a solution except that people will choose to hoard money instead of putting it in the bank. This is called the zero lower bound and has reduced the power of Fed policy. (Business Insider) Here are his solutions: create inflation and create a cashless society. We could also move to a cashless society where all money is electronic. This would make it impossible to hoard cash outside the bank, allowing the Fed to cut interest rates to below zero, spurring people to spend more. (Business Insider) Mr. Summers thinking, though quite scary, should not be too surprising. First, the economic malaise continues; there is a mismatch between U.S. (and global) economic growth versus our (and global) deficit spending. Second, Mr. Summers is part of a group that views the solution to be government doing another something. Third, the worlds economic thinkers are already proposing all sorts of new taxation ideas to solve the inevitable global government spending crisis, including a surprise onetime tax levy on assets. While some might think this will never happen, others might have their eyes wide open and understand that there is already movement in this direction.

If, for example, she can get something made only in China that a business in the U.S. deems essential, shell deal with a supplier in Pennsylv ania who employs Chinese speakers and translators. We have a customer in Nigeria who surfaces every couple of years they bought a couple hundred watches from us, says Barbara Durham, at Unforgettable Promotions. Were the distributors for over a thousand different manufacturers. Often we partner with silk screeners or embroiderers we can use more than 750,000 imprinted products, so its a big business as far as products and availability. It works like this, she says. You can go to our website, do a catalog search and find the category or particular price point or color you want. Most of our customers are online. They find us via website. It could be anywhere. Florida Weekly might want to send out greeting cards to all their people, or maybe a new startup wants to get the word out doctors offices, local hospitals, a new wine shop thats opened, and with every purchase they might give a bottle stopper with a logo and imprint on it.Promotional valueAll of this has a huge effect on the culture. At the Endless Specialties website, Bill Fuller provides some telling statistics, scrolled across the top of the home page so viewers will recognize, in general terms, the import of their purchases: 2.6 percent of people can recall the company and brand on their product; one in four walk around with a promotional product; 58 percent of people hang on to their promotional product promotional products generate a 15 to 50 percent greater recall rate than other media. But Mr. Fuller puts the effect of this business in specific terms, too. There are industry specific items that help. A restaurant, for example, wants to get its name out there, so we make suggestions. Then they sell them. Say, Mels Diner. Im saying that because I service Mels Diner. Somebody takes the item home, puts the coffee mug to their face a week later, and says, Oh, lets go to Mels tonight. It works. And it works especially if people in the industry meet certain standards as these Southwest Florida companies do. The standards giving each promotional product business equal access to information about manufacturers and suppliers, for example are maintained in part by a couple of professional trade organizations, including the nonprofit Promotional Products Association International. Its a way of helping entrepreneurs stay afloat in an increasingly complicated world.International considerationsThe biggest challenge is importexport and related issues, whether transportation, fuel or product, Mrs. Costa says. Petrol is at the base of a whole lot that we do. If a plant closes in Yemen and our suppliers cant get cost-effective fuel for the plastics they produce, thats a big issue. About a decade ago, there was a move by suppliers to cut out the middlemen but it failed when suppliers realized how complicated working with end users could be, and how much creativity it required in helping them visualize effective products. So the promotional products business got past that, says Mrs. Costa. One of the challenges has also been buying American, an increasingly rare opportunity. In the s when we did apparel, we targeted on Vantage Apparel out of New Jersey, Mrs. Costa recalls. They made all their own garments, decorated them and sent them out. My husband and I, that was our target, to buy American. But all of the mills they were using, primarily in the Carolinas, closed. The work went to India and Bangladesh. The whole industry flip flopped. Now you can barely find any made-in-the-U.S.A. apparel. The advantage, however, is that Americans still control the manufacturing. You have U.S.A. manufacturing standards in factories, you dont use ones that use child labor, so the fabrics have to be made over there, but theyre supervised and controlled by the American company, who decorates, steam presses and folds. And you have a whole factory in New Jersey who are doing that. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 4, 2013 Dirty Grout? Its SIR GROUT to The Rescue Imagine...

I was founded in 1886 as the California Perfume Company by a bookseller who found his customers more interested in perfume. Headquartered in Manhattan today, Im a global beauty company, raking in more than $10 billion annually (though my earnings have been shrinking lately). For more than 125 years, my business model has featured women selling directly to other women, and today my network of sellers tops 6 million people in more than 100 countries. I owned Tiffany from 1979 to 1984. I ended animal testing in 1989. My brands include ANEW, Skin-SoSoft, Advance Techniques and mark. Who am I?Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Year-End Tax PlanningBig tax savings dont just happen. You have to plan for them and take certain actions often before the end of the year. For example: Review your capital gains and losses. If youre looking at substantial gains on which youll be taxed in the coming year, you might want to sell some stock for a loss to offset some or all of those gains. (You can buy that stock back, too, after 30 days.) If you believe your tax bracket next year will be no higher than this year, youre itemizing your deductions, and you wont be bothered by any alternative minimum tax issues, consider making your state and/or local tax payments before the end of this year. Youre going to owe the money anyway, so if you pay now, you can take the federal tax deduction this year instead of next. Dont forget your IRA and/or your employer-sponsored retirement plan such as a 401(k). The maximum 2013 IRA contribution is $5,500 (plus $1,000 if youre 50 or older), and its $17,500 (plus $5,500) for 401(k)s. For both, the 2013 contribution deadline is actually April 15, 2014, but earlier contributions have longer to grow. (Learn more about these plans at Dont overlook valuable credits. If you have modest means and youre contributing to retirement plans, you may be eligible for the Savers Credit, worth up to $1,000 for a single person and $2,000 for couples.If you pay someone to care for your child younger than 13 so that you can work, you might be eligible for the Child and Dependent Care Credit. The Child Tax Credit can save you $1,000 per qualifying child younger than of 17. If youve recently adopted a child, you may be able to enjoy a credit of up to $12,970.The American Opportunity Credit offers savings of up to $2,500 per eligible student for qualified tuition and fees paid by or for the student. The Lifetime Learning Credit offers up to $2,000. For much more tax information, head to and fool. com/taxes. A Las Vegas LossMy dumbest investment was buying a house in Las Vegas in October 2007. After only two years, it had lost about 40 percent of its sales value while I was sleeping in it. Two refinances later, and now a planned strategic sale by the end of the year, and Im hoping I can get out of this investment essentially even (with the bonus of having lived in it for six years). I will be completely debt-free! But Ill also be homeless, looking for a singlelevel, three-bedroom, two-bath rental. M., onlineThe Fool Responds: Housing markets can be surprisingly volatile at times, and it can be a mistake to think of your primary home as an investment. (For one thing, over the long run, on average, stocks tend to grow in value more rapidly.) There are upsides to buying a home, such as equity growth, but there are other considerations, too, such as taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs and utility costs. You can often save money by renting a home, and if you sock those savings into a retirement account, you can often build an equity-like nest egg. Qualcomm: An Overlooked ValueYou may not have heard of Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), but its technology is found inside just about every smartphone, from Androids to Apple devices. The company not only makes semiconductors, but also derives billions annually from the licensing of its many patents. Qualcomm collects a 3 percent to 5 percent royalty on the sale price of each cellular device sold. It offers a 2 percent dividend yield, too, with the payout having doubled in just a few years. Qualcomm does face formidable competition, such as from Intel and Broadcom, but its still a dominant force, with a recent market share of 53 percent for smartphone applications processing.Growth prospects for Qualcomm are solid as it expands into territory such as telemedicine, where it connects medical devices, facilitating the capture and transfer of biometric data, among other things.Indeed, CEO Paul Jacobs sees Qualcomms mobile technology playing a role in everything from medicine to virtual reality-like interfaces between the physical world and the Internet, with the potential for products such as wearable computing devices and other mobilesavvy inventions transforming the world. Bears worry about competition and a slowdown in the smartphone market, but with a recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 18, well below its five-year average of 24, Qualcomm deserves consideration. I was founded in 1998 in California and w ent public in 2 004. S ince then, my stock has grown in value more than tenfold. I began in 1996 as an online tool called BackRub that used links to determine the importance of individual pages on the Internet. My current name is a play on the number thats a 1 followed by 100 zeros. Over the years, Ive acquired Picasa, YouTube, Zagat and Motorola Mobility. I rake in more than $57 billion annually, keeping more than $12 billion as income. My mission is to organize the worlds information. Who am I? (Answer: Google) Best Time to BuyQIs there a best time of day, week, month or year to buy stocks? A.K., Pueblo, Colo.AThe best time isnt found on a calendar or clock its different for each person. To determine if youre ready to buy a stock, ask yourself whether youve done enough research to be confident that the company is financially healthy and growing, has sustainable advantages over its competitors and has a promising future. Then determine whether the current stock price is low enough to offer a good chance of growth. Some terrific companies might be priced so high that its hard to rationally imagine them advancing much more in the next few years. Evaluating a companys fair value is not easy, though. Measures such as price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios and price-to-cash-flow ratios can help, but in order to keep improving your results, keep learning more. You can do so at and at Once youre confident youve found a great company selling at a good or great price, thats the best time to buy. ***QWhat do tulips have to do with stocks? I see references to them sometimes. O., Flint, Mich.ATheyre references to the great tulipmania bubble that grew in Holland in the mid-1600s. That was one of the first documented cases of a speculative investing frenzy. Incredibly, people took out loans on their homes in order to buy tulip bulbs. Prices soared to the modernday equivalent of tens of thousands of dollars per bulb, and more. The bubble eventually burst, wiping out many investors. The easiest way to avoid such trouble is to avoid borrowing money to invest and to be wary of stocks that seem to have soared beyond reason. Got a question for the Fool?

C22 A winning formulaAt the intersection of fantasy and thriller fiction, book critic Phil Jason finds Shadow People. C15 Pop the corkThe holiday season begs for some bubbly. C30 There is no shortage of holiday and general interest cookbooks with holiday recipes, although a few stand out among the pack as important or funny or intrinsically tied to Southwest Florida. Here are a few weve found that will help the home cook really heat things up this season. A Sweet Taste of HistoryBy Chef Walter Staib and Molly YunPerhaps no one is more excited about holiday cookbooks than PBS viewers. Celebrity Chef Walter Staib of Philadelphias famed City Tavern Restaurant and host of PBSs Taste of History has just released his new cookbook with collaborator Molly Yun. A Sweet Taste of History is based on American history that celebrates the 18th century sweet table, what Chef Staib calls the grand finale course of an 18th-century meal. You could almost eat this book; the photos are truly exquisite, and the 100 dessert recipes include cakes, cobblers, pies, cookies, quick breads and ice cream. A Sweet Taste of History also includes original recipes from some of Americas first ladies, such as Martha Washingtons An Excellent Cake and Dolley Madisons French Vanilla Ice Cream. Aside from the recipes, the coolest part of this cookbook is the foreword, by legendary author and historian David McCullough, which reads in part: We can enter their world, we can come to know them through the letters they wrote and yes, God be praised, by the food they ate To dine as John Adams and his contemporaries once did is to be reminded of how fullflavored life at best must have been for them, and that they themselves, at their Cookbooks can ease the angst over holiday meals & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE WHAT FOLLOWS TURKEY DAY? Leftovers, serious shopping and, of course, holiday shows. This seasons traditional and decidedly non-traditional Christmas shows include Nutcrackers and Christmas Carols, as well as folksy Midwestern church basement ladies and a play that also became a movie in the 1950s. And, once again, our favorite crotchety elf, Crumpet, returns to sneer and cause Christmas mayhem. Heres a look at some of the seasonal shows coming to town.

A little late in life, I know, but with so many good books out there it had been easy to put off reading that one. Plus I imagined it would be slow going, stodgy in the way of many old books. What a delight then to learn that its every bit as captivating as people say. Id bet a lot of single English majors out there are still holding out hope for a man as desirable as Mr. Darcy. Which could be part of the problem for a lot of us. Some people myself included spend so much time with our heads in books that we forget what actual relationships look like. When we do see them in action, we cant help but be disappointed. I recently had breakfast with a couple in their mid-50s who reminded me of the challenges that come with the partnered life. Over organic oatmeal, the woman asked her musician husband if he planned to work on the piano that day. Kevins working on the piano, he said tersely. But the other one? the woman said. In the studio? The man flicked a dismissive hand. Its a subpar piano. But its still a tool, she pressed. He glowered into his bowl. Im used to perfection in my tools. I kept my eyes on my own plate, trying to make myself invisible, the way we do around feuding couples. Why, I wondered, cant they just be like Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet? The people I know who are perpetually single also happen to be big readers. They are lovers of poetry and fiction, those territories of well-scrubbed romance. These same people will ask me why they cant find anyone to l ove, and I hate to tell them the truth: that real-life affairs never look the way they do in books. In this world people behave badly. They get food stuck in their teeth and wake up with crust in their eyes. They sometimes have bad breath and pimples on their bums. All of this is anathema to the romantic heart. To put it in perspective, the contemporary novelist Jo Baker has done an excellent job of exposing reality in her new novel Longbourn, a take on the Pride and Prejudice tale told by the household servants. The book catalogs many of the realities of life that escaped mention in Jane Austens comedy of manners inconveniences like armpit hair and laundry and were reminded that the epic love story at the center of Pride and Prejudice has few touchstones in the real world. Which might be forgiven if we consider the author herself. Miss Austen died at the age of 42, unwed, having never left her family. The idealized relationships in her books were invented stories. They make for great reading but disastrous life lessons. The romantics among us would do well to remember that partnerships happen in this world, a place of traffic jams and stubbed toes and dirty dishes in the sink. It might not be as pretty as what happens in fiction, but at least its something we can touch.

Toward the end of the second act, when Suzanna (Denise Scott) moans, Im so confused, I thought: Me too, sister! Theatre Conspiracy, where Becky Shaw is playing through Dec. 15, is known for putting on offbeat fare. But this production doesnt seem offbeat as much as off-rhythm. The dialogue moved forward in a herkyjerky manner. Throughout the show, something just felt off. The pieces were there, but they werent fitting together. I kept trying to decide if it was the production, the pacing or the play itself or a combination of the three. Of course, its always risky to have a character as abrasive as Max (Mike Breen) in a play. Hes prickly, bullying, manipulative and devoid of any empathy. When he dates women, he discards them after three months. In the opening scene, he mocks his adopted sister for mourning fairly recent death of her father. Mr. Breen is perfect at playing by-thebook people detectives, cops, federal agents, etc. who see the world in black and white. His Max is so reprehensible that you totally dislike him from the start. Hes so hostile and brutish, your hatred only grows as the action progresses. When Suzanna declares at one point, I think Im revolted by Max! I totally agreed. Becky Shaw is supposed to be a romantic comedy with edge, but this production contains little humor and not much romance. On opening night, there were long stretches where no one laughed much, though every so often a good line hit a funny bone. (This is also not a play for children; theres a ton of adult language.) The plot is somewhat difficult to explain. Its about a blind date that goes awry, but its also about complicated family and romantic relationships, economic necessities, manipulation, boundaries and how much truth any relationship can bear. Becky Shaw (Tera Nicole Miller) is a single woman who works with Suzannas husband, Andrew (Christopher Brent). Suzanna and Andrew set Becky up on a blind date with Max which, of course, turns out to be a disaster. (How could any date with Max be otherwise?) Ms. Miller plays Becky with some complexity, so were never quite sure if shes a victim or a manipulator, or perhaps just someone whos extremely needy. She keeps us guessing. (It has been suggested playwright Gina Gionfriddo based the character on Thackerays social-climbing Becky Sharp from the classic Vanity Fair.) I especially liked her opening scene, when she arrives for her blind date in a pink party dress better suited for a 4-yearold. As Suzannas mother, Susan, Kim Crow rules every scene shes in. Think of the most loving, nurturing mother you know. Susan is the direct opposite. Her scenes are small, but she makes the most of them. And on opening night, she received the most laughs when she talked about the necessity of having pockets of privacy within a marriage. Ms. Scotts character is like Alice in Wonderland, only shes fallen down the rabbit hole into an upside down world of family dysfunction. (So what does Suzanna do? She gets a graduate degree in psychology and becomes a therapist!) I wish director Karen Goldberg had guided her actors to have more nuance to their characters. Perhaps they wouldve received more laughs. I also wished for more exciting staging; at times it felt as if everyone was just standing around talking or exchanging pages of dialogue. Its possible the cast was thrown by the lighting difficulties on opening night. The set, by Bill Taylor, looked fine to me: blue walls divided into rectangles of various sizes by white lines, as if a blueprint, with wooden squares, ovals and rectangles representing paintings, mirrors and furniture. But the walls were translucent scrims backed with LED lights; the walls were supposed to change color with each new locale, but the lights werent working. Becky Shaw, which had its world premiere at Actors Theatre of Louisvilles Humana Festival of New American Plays and its New York premiere Off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre, was a 2009 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. But this production, unfortunately, doesnt reflect what the play is possibly capable of. It feels as if it aspires to be an August: Osage County or God of Carnage, but its not even half as funny or deep. This production of Becky Shaw had moments and actors I liked, but as a whole, it doesnt hold together or excite.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOV. 28-DEC. 4, 2013 C11 Located just north of Vanderbilt Beach Road on U.S. 41 On the lawn across from MASA and Silverspot CinemaFREE ADMISSION LAWN CHAIRS WELCOME John Ondrasik of Five for FightingFriday, December 13th, 6pm On the lawn outside of BRAVO! Award-Winning Blues Band Is it worth $10? YesThe Book Thief starts and ends with sadness, and has sadness at all stops in between. Since its a World War II movie set in Germany, the sadness is no surprise. What does surprise, however, is how the story feels fresh while covering familiar territory. This is not a typical war movie by any means. Theres nothing groundbreaking here, but its a heartfelt, solid drama for people who like to see a good story told well. Early in the film, young Liesel (Sophie Nelisse) is adopted by Hans (Geoffrey Rush) and Rosa (Emily Watson), a German couple who dont have much to offer besides bad soup and strict rules. Liesel befriends boy-next-door Rudy (Nico Liersch) and gradually settles into her new, modest life. Soon a Jewish teenager named Max (Ben Schnetzer) comes to live in their basement during the Holocaust. As Liesel learns to read, she also learns the value of secrecy, words and literature, which leads her to read books (that she steals from a Nazi officer, hence the title) such as The Invisible Man, a symbolic choice for sure during her time with Max. Michael Petronis adaptation of Australian author Markus Zusaks best-selling novel nicely captures Liesels confusion at the events around her. Why, she thinks, would Max have to hide in the basement, would Nazi leaders burn books in the town square, and would certain individuals have to fear for their lives? Ms. Nelisse skillfully allows her character Liesels unabashed youth and navet to expose moral corruption with startling clarity. Mr. Rush and Ms. Watson are also stellar in supporting roles; at the risk of taking them for granted, we expect nothing less. For the life of me, however, one thing about this film just doesnt make sense: Its set in Germany, so the characters should by all rights be speaking German. But the movie is Americanized (because mainstream American audiences hate subtitles), so everyone speaks English. Fine. Inexplicably, though, the street signs and the words yes, no, and thank you are in German, as we hear ja, nein, and danke (respectively) quite often. If you can explain why this inconsistency is necessary, you are my hero. Director Brian Percivals film drags a bit in the middle, and the ending is abrupt in addition to being full of pathos. Quibbles aside, its nonetheless unusual to see a war movie from a childs perspective, and the fact that its handled with gentility and unflinching honesty is admirable. Liesel might not be overtly rooting for the Nazis, but she also doesnt want her home, country, family or friends destroyed, which means she kind of has to root for the Nazis or risk losing everything. And yet we still root for her, because she is an innocent whose sympathetic presence and capacity for good outweigh her guilty-by-association circumstance. The Book Thief is not a story for kids, but adults and young teens should find virtue in Liesels character, relate to her and, hopefully, learn something along the way. A bold story told with strength and conviction, it deserves to be seen. LATEST FILMSThe Book Thief s q i h CAPSULESThe Best Man Holiday (Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut) Old friends and old issues reunite for the holiday season in this sequel to The Best Man (1999). Its a well-rounded, thoughtful, funny and heartfelt look at a group of AfricanAmerican friends caught in between the exuberance of youth and oncoming mid-life crises. Rated R.Last Vegas (Michael Douglas, Kevin Kline, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman) Four old friends reunite in Las Vegas when Billy (Mr. Douglas) decides to marry someone half his age. The veteran Oscar-winning actors share affable chemistry in this genuinely funny film. Rated PG-13.Thor: The Dark World (Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman) Thor (Mr. Hemsworth) must save Jane (Ms. Portman) and protect the universe from a long-thought-dead Dark Elf named Malakith (Christopher Eccleston). The action is rousing, the comic relief is spot on, and theres no doubt that Thors movies are the best of the Avengers individual efforts. Rated PG-13.Diana (Naomi Watts, Naveen Andrews, Douglas Hodge) In the last two years of her life, Princess Diana (Ms. Watts) has an affair with a Pakistani heart surgeon (MR. Andrews) in London. The premise is interesting, but Diana is too one-dimensional to carry our sympathy, and theres little chemistry between Ms. Watts and Mr. Andrews. Rated PG-13. >> The Book Thief novel was on The New York Times Bestseller List for seven years.

BEA CH R EADIN GInside Mad and Dave Berg Edited by John Ficarra, foreword by Judd Apatow (Time Home Entertainment, $29.95) Foreword by Drew Friedman (Running Press, $30)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXWithout a doubt, for more than 60 years, one of the most irreverent, laugh-outloud humor publications in America was Mad magazine. If you were a kid during the 1950s and s, it was one of the publications that your parents scolded you for reading. Two new books illustrate why Mad has been such must reading for more than half a century. Inside Mad highlights many of the classic spoofs by such legendary writers and artists as Jack Davis, Drew Friedman, Dick DeBartolo and others. Its 17 celebrity essays include contributions by Roseanne Barr, Whoopi Goldberg and Ken Burns, who reveal what it was like to be lampooned in its pages. As a bonus, Inside Mad also serves up an all-new, specially commissioned gatefold poster by Sergio Aragones, and a never-before-reprinted Alfred E. Neuman pop art poster. Some favorite features include Will Success Spoil Charley Brown, a classic by Jack Rickard and Larry Siegel; the outrageous Baseball at the Bat; A Mad Look At Other Uses for Live Lobsters; and Clodumbo, lampooning the TV detective. This is great stuff. The second book, Dave Berg, highlights the work of one of Mads most popular artists. Berg spent 50 years at Mad and was responsible for one of the magazines most popular features, The Lighter Side Of ... In addition to presenting his best work chronologically, there is a rare 1970 interview with the artist. These two volumes illustrate zany American humor at its wackiest. Anyone who grew up with Mad should rejoice. For those who arent familiar with it, my advice is to grab the books, settle back and be prepared for a delightful shock.

FLORIDA WRITERSMagician, psychic, FBI consultant Peter Warlock is back Shadow People by James Swain. T OR. 352 pages. $25.99. This is the second in Mr. Swains arresting series that features youthful psychic/magician Peter Warlock in blood-curdling thriller plots. Peter is more than your everyday psychic, as demonic forces can overcome and transform him, charging him with rage and superhuman physical strength. Most often, his better nature allows him to bend that force to the good, but theres always the chance that hell turn into an uncontrollable menace. Besides working his regular, soldout magic shows in Manhattan, Peter often uses his psychic powers to assist the FBI. This time out, hes in league with FBI agent Garrison to foil a serial killer before he murders his next target. Driven to kill those who do good in the world, this madman has lured a young woman to meet him under false, but convincing pretenses. The clock is ticking. What Peter seeks is normality. He wants fulfilling human relationships. He wants to be truthful, rather than having to hide his background, his tainted legacy and his frightening talents. He wants to be deserving of beautiful Liza, the young woman he has allowed to enter his life to a deeper level than any other woman has. Peter has the ability to enter the spirit world, which in the authors imagination is not a desirable place; in fact, it might not be a place at all, but rather a state of being. Peter is threatened at the outset of the novel by the Shadow People, who give him a glimpse of the future that includes the serial killers purpose and plan. The killer in turn is connected to the evil Order of Astrum, a group of demonic figures who murdered Peters parents. Enough plot lines? Indeed. But theres more. The young psychic Holly, niece of one of the psychic elders who stand in place of family for Peter, has a huge crush on him. Holly violates all the protocols of witch and psychic behavior by constantly spying (scrying) on Peter and otherwise making his life difficult. How can he resolve this without hurting her? The pursuit of the serial killer provides fascinating and often gruesome action. The battles between good and evil are not pretty, and Mr. Swain manipulates his readers into a stunning suspension of disbelief in conjuring up scary scenes both in this palpable world and the other world where souls and spirits reside. As with Jonathan Swifts success in Gullivers Travels, the key is in making the central character so credible that we believe his experiences could happen because he knows that they did and we believe in him. There is something pleasantly cartoonish about the characterizations and settings. I mean this in a positive sense. Scenes in the Peter Warlock novels could make great graphic novels. Mr. Swain also injects a vein of humor. He encourages us to have fun with the mythology he fashions, whether we find it credible or not. The authors comfortable and variegated portrayal of contemporary New York City and its environs this time a slice of Westchester County is one of the many charms of Shadow People. Mr. Swain has found a winning formula at the intersection of fantasy and thriller fiction. About the author Tampa resident James Swain is the national bestselling author of 15 thrillers. His novels have been translated into many languages and chosen as Mysteries of the Year by Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews. He has received three Barry Award nominations, a Florida Book Award for fiction, and the prestigious Prix Calibre .38 for Best American Crime Writing. An avid magician for most of his life, he has written extensively about the subject. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. n t a l rs to i n an n e, ss e n g e l n r SWAIN

At the time, only commercial flasks that held whiskey and a few other hand-blown bottles were considered important. Probably the earliest book for bottle collectors was written in 1921 by Stephen Van Rensselaer. In 1941, George and Helen McKearin wrote American Bottles and created a system of identification that listed, numbered, described and sketched all known historic American flasks. Bottle collecting became a hobby of the middle class in the 1950s. Valuable bottles were dug from backyards and river banks or found at resale shops or yard sales. The first collectors club, the Antique Bottle Collectors Association of California, started in 1959. By the 1960s, articles on old bottles were being published in magazines and books. Kovels Bottles Price List, written in 1971, was the first of 13 editions. We wrote the last in 2006. Interest in bottles has gone up and down during the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, but clubs, shows and collections remain. Prices of historic flasks have gone from less than $100 to thousands of dollars. Fruit jars, soda bottles, commemorative bottles, perfumes, poisons and inks attracted new collectors. But who would have guessed that old bottles could become part of modern art? Amateurs could buy kits that helped them take old bottles and stretch them into elongated modern shapes. Early 1900s bottles were turned purple by exposure to the sun or radiation. Claire Falkenstein became famous for sculptures made from iron rods and drooping bottles. An English artist, Barry McGee, made modern art from bottles he painted with pictures of heads. He chose empty whiskey bottles to picture street people. His bottle art sells for thousands of dollars. Still, the most expensive commercial bottles today remain the historic flasks. Rarities can sell for more than $40,000. Q : A few months ago, my husband and I bought a mahogany bookcase with four leaded glass doors at an estate sale. Its about 54 inches high, 66 inches wide and 12 inches deep. There is a small brass plaque on one of the shelves that reads Library Bureau Sole Makers. Can you give us the history of this bookcase? A: Library Bureau was founded by Melvil Dewey (1851-1931), a librarian and the inventor of the Dewey Decimal Classification System used by many libraries today. He published his system in 1876, the same year he naples, floridaCOME CELEBRATE OUR FIRST 6 MONTHS OF BUSINESS!FRESH, HEALTHY + LOCALLY SOURCED5323 AIRPORT PULLING ROAD N NAPLES, FLORIDA 34109239.596.FARMon the corner of pine ridge + airport-pulling road in the bed bath and beyond shopping plazaOpen 7 days a week 11am-10pm Fareon pine ridge road


founded a company that sold library supplies. The company operated under different names until it became Library Bureau in 1881. It made a bookcase that could be joined with others to create a long wall of bookcases. The company was bought by Remington Rand in 1927 and became part of Midwest Library Systems in 1976. Library Bureau products still are being sold. Q: I have a ceramic vase marked Mougin Nancy and J. Mougin.dc. It has been in our family for more than 60 years. I would like to know who made it. A: The marks on your vase were used by Joseph Mougin (1876-1961). Joseph and his brother, Pierre, were French sculptors and ceramists known for their Art Nouveau and Art Deco designs. They worked in Nancy, a town in France, from 1906 until 1916, producing their own designs as well as works by other artists. In 1916 they moved to nearby Luneville. Your vase, marked Mougin Nancy, was made between 1906 and 1916. Q: I have a 9 -inch Orrefors decanter decorated with an etching called Susanna bathing with the old men watching her. I cant find any information about it. Do you know what its worth? A: Orrefors, a Swedish glassworks, has been in business since 1898. It has made many styles of decorative and useful glass. The story of Susanna bathing is an apocryphal chapter in the Bibles book of Daniel. The story, about a pair of old men trying to blackmail a virtuous young woman, has been the basis of many pieces of artwork throughout the centuries. It is likely your decanter isnt yet an antique (100 years old), but in 1993 one like it auctioned at Christies for $690. Tip: Never store celluloid jewelry with metal or rhinestone jewelry. Celluloid ages and gives off an acidic gas that eats metal. The metal will become pitted and greenish. Celluloid disease also attacks pearls, paper and other organic materials. Store celluloid by itself. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. By sending a letter with a question, you give full permission for use in the column or any other Kovel forum.

Jon W., Redding, Calif.A: Noah which also stars Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins and Logan Lerman will flood into theaters March 28. The story is about the biblical Noah (played by Russell), his family and their quest to build the Ark to save humanand animal-kind from complete annihilation in the upcoming Great Flood. After watching the online trailers, I can tell you this is one you shouldnt miss. Q: My sister told me that there is a remake of the movie Flowers in the Attic in the works. Is that true? I dont think anything can top the original movie in campiness, thats for sure! Becky G., via e-mailA: The 1987 feature film starring Kristy Swanson, Louise Fletcher and Victoria Tennant certainly was awash in awful-movie goodness. While I dont think that can be replicated (at least I hope not), Lifetime Television is having a go at the cult favorite, based on the hit book by V.C. Andrews. On Saturday, Jan. 18, at 8 p.m. well get to see what Heather Graham, Kiernan Shipka and Ellen Burstyn do with this Gothic tale.

The Naked Truth Teams of 4 VINOMake any day special by popping open a bottle of champagneWith all the parties and festive meals coming in the next few weeks, its a great time to break out some champagne. But then, anytime is a good time to drink sparkling wine, as Americans are discovering and retail sales trends are revealing.Champagne sales in the United States, the largest wine market in the world, are increasing six times faster than elsewhere around the globe. This is due, in large part, to changes champagne makers have made to their products as they accommodate customers changing preferences. Some have modified their existing brands or released new ones and also have begun taking advantage of the new avenues of marketing via social media. Here are just a few examples: GH Mumm has reblended its Mumm de Cramant Champagne Grand Cru, going to 100 percent Chardonnay grapes, and added Blanc de Blancs to the label. Lower pressure in the bottle gives the wine a creamier texture on the palate; less sugar in the content makes it lighter, crisper and more food-friendly. Mot & Chandon has replaced its established brand, White Star, with the new moniker Imperial, and lowered the sugar content, likewise making a crisper, cleaner and more food-friendly product. To reach a new market, Mot & Chandon released a new concept geared for less sophisticated drinkers: Ice Imperial, a Champagne meant to be poured on the rocks. Made with black and white grapes, it has more body, fruit and sugar than Imperial, resulting in bright fresh flavors that remain in the glass as the ice melts. Krug Champagne has launched a fan club on its website. Krug Lovers offers a platform for stories, inspirations and favorite getaways. It also features member profiles and their collaborative efforts with Krug, such as drawings and photographs of Krug-inspired scenes and locations. As in happening in all aspects of marketing, social media is becoming increasingly prominent in the marketing of wines and champagnes. A recent Wine Spectator article quotes Cyril Brun, the senior winemaker at Veuve Clicquot, explaining how that house uses Twitter to educate its consumers. Its not necessarily about the brand itself, but more about sharing basic information, he said. Wine culture has matured and wine drinkers desire to learn more about their selections. Champagne Roederer recently released an app for the iPhone and iPad. When you scan the QR code on the back label, it takes you to a web page describing the specific wine scanned, including tasting notes, varietal composition and production information. Tasting notesAll that said, champagne still remains the perfect wine for celebrations and special occasions, so break out the bubbly this Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, New Years or whatever other reason you have to raise a glass. Here are some nice picks for the holidays and beyond: Bollinger Special Cuvee NV ($75): A golden color, distinctive of black grape varieties ... very fine bubbles ... ripe fruit and spicy aromas ... hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches. Champagne Bollinger. Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne 2000 ($100): A deep golden hue with warm highlights ... aromas of the humus and ferns of the forest mixed with the floral notes of musk rose ... plush with red currants, blackberries and blueberries ... with an incredibly long finish. Champagne Charles Heidsieck. Mot & Chandon Imprial Brut Champagne NV ($41): An elegant color ... golden straw highlights ... a sparkling bouquet ... the vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit, the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers, the elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts) ... The delicious sumptuousness of white-fleshed fruits (pear, peach, apple). Mot & Chandon. Montaudon Champagne Grande Ros NV ($38): A delicate pink with slightly coppered hints ... Bubbles are abundant ... fruity aromas such as currant, strawberry or raspberry scents with a wealth of aromas and a deliciously long and powerful finish. Champagne Montaudon. Louis Roederer Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2005 ($90): Golden, bright and iridescent. Fine, regular bubbles with a well-defined flow. Sparkling, almost varietal bouquet, redolent of Chardonnay and white fruit aromas (apple, pear), pollen and soft, sweet citrus fruit (grapefruit). These are followed by the warm, chocolaty hints (vanilla, tatin pie, baked apple) which are typical of our Maison. Jean Baptiste Lcaillon, Champagne Louis Roederer. Louis Roederer Brut Champagne Cristal 2004 ($249): Brilliant yellow color displaying light amber nuances, combined with an ultra-fine, persistent, soft effervescence. Theres an intense, highly expressive bouquet on the first nose! The aromatic elegance and precision of Chardonnay is apparent: white fruit, sweet pollen, fine citrus fruit and very pure minerality. Jean-Baptiste Lcaillon, Champagne Louis Roederer. Taittinger Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne 2005 ($175 ): A pale yellow Champagne with very light, abundant bubbles ... very intense bouquet, opening with notes of pastry cream of great aromatic richness ... good structure and a hint of fruit wood ... flavors of ripe fruit such as pink grapefruit long, rich complex finish. Champagne Taittinger. s a o w a i t Enjoy Moet & Chandon Imperial this holiday season.

Holidays excluded. CUISINEAgave undergoes change in attitude, atmosphereFor whatever reason, Southwestern cuisine doesnt seem to travel well. Too many people expect it to be Tex-Mex and expect to pay accordingly. Southwestern is a much subtler, more sophisticated affair and one that I believe Agave did well. Alas, I appear to be among the minority, as the management has decided to go with a style thats more understood among area diners. After a two-week closure, Agave reopens Tuesday,. Dec. 3, with a new menu and a new decor. Owner Don Smith brought in consulting Chef Carmen Gonzalez, who appeared on Bravos Top Chef Masters in 2010 and operates Carmen at the Danforth in Portland, Me., to work on the redo at Agave. Puerto Rican-born and New York-trained Chef Gonzalez has previously run acclaimed restaurants such as Clowns in Coral Gables and Carmen the Restaurant in Miami. She has crafted Agaves new menu to focus on American fare, with more seafood options. The restaurant will continue to serve its signature guacamole, but will add root vegetable chips and offer lobster, shrimp or crabmeat as add-ons. Other starters include a seafood tower; Gulf shrimp al ajillo; empanadas with red snapper, ground sirloin or short ribs; flatbread with house-smoked salmon, horseradish creme fraiche and salmon roe or lamb belly and pickled jicama salad; skewers with churrasco and chimichurri, pork strips and mango dipping sauce; sliders featuring grilled grouper or goat cheese-stuffed meatballs. Entrees feature comfort fare such as meatloaf and b uttermilk fried chicken as well as oven-roasted Florida grouper, Maine lobster Americaine, grilled whole Florida snapper and boneless Painted Hills Farms short ribs. Appetizers run $7-$30; entrees are priced at $16-$36. The Agave bar will continue serving margaritas, but has also added 40 craft beers and expanded its hand-crafted cocktails. The restaurant is at 2380 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples. Call 598-3473 or visit in NaplesGreg Scarlatos, the former executive chef of Angelinas Ristorante in Bonita Springs, opened Fuse in Naples with his fianc, Monika Czechowska, on Nov. 15, in the space formerly occupied by Paris Bistro. The global concept allows Chef Scarlatos to broaden his repertoire. Among the options diners might find on the menu are shrimp and crawfish etouffee, fried duck mac n cheese with smoked tomato aioli, chili garlic hot wings with sesame and green onions, and ginger lime fried yellowtail snapper. Fuse also has a full bar. Its at 2500 Tamiami Trail N. Call 455-4585. Naples Chocolate StrollThis tours motto could be: Will walk for chocolate. The Naples Chocolate Stroll involves guided strolls along Fifth Avenue South with stops in nine food shops to taste all things chocolate: truffles, cupcakes, gelato, custard, popcorn you get the idea. Along the way, you also learn the history of chocolate and how its made. Tours are $39 ($29 for ages 5-10 and free for those younger), with a 10 percent discount Thanksgiving weekend. Two-hour tours set out at 2 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and cover a mile with places to stop and sit. Call 653-7933 or visit BowlsMark your calendar for Friday, Dec. 6, when the Florida Gulf Coast University Art Program hosts its annual Pottery Sale and Empty Bowls Soup Lunch at the campus arts complex. The sale runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The soup lunch starts at 11:30 a.m. and continues until the soup runs out. Potters, students, restaurants and food banks unite to address the needs of the hungry in Southwest Florida. Local potters and FGCU students make bowls, restaurants donate soup and bread, and hunger assistance organizations provide education. For a $15 donation, visitors select bowls and fill them with the soup of their choice for a soup kitchen-style meal. Afterward, they can wash out the bowls and take them home. All of the proceeds go to Interfaith Charities of South Lee in Estero for use in its community food pantry. Soups this year will come from Hyatt Regency Coconut Point (beef and barley), Teds Montana Grill (bison chili), Carrabbas (lentil sausage), PF Changs (hot and sour and egg drop), Waterside Grill (chicken noodle) and Connors Steak and Seafood (crab and lobster bisque). The FGCU Science of Cooking class will contribute a vegan soup developed as a class project. The Artisan Bread Company will donate ciabatta bread. In addition, the United Arts Council of Collier County will hold a pottery sale, with a portion of proceeds benefitting the purchase of art supplies and equipment as well as funding for teachers in after-school programs.
