26 Gabber October 24 October 30, 2013 By Holiday Mathis Do you believe that everybody has a dark side? Consider that it may only be dark because its being hidden away. Whatever the problem, if you bring it out into the light by claiming, discussing and asking for help with it, it will no longer have the same power as it does lurking about in the shadows. This is the point that Mercury traveling retrograde through the mysterious realm of Scorpio makes as it meets up with Saturn this week. SCORPIO cant run fast if youre not leaning forward. You have to be able to trust that your feet will stretch out before you and youll catch yourself at the right moment. The only way to trust this is to see it happen over and over. Take bigger risks this week. Whether you fall or catch yourself, youll learn how to do it better. SAGITTARIUS Place a high value on yourself, your time and your energy before you jump into a relationship. Inevitably, you will end up giving your best to another person. With that in mind, consider whom you want to give someone who doesnt deserve it and wont appreciate it. CAPRICORN Youre not going for sainthood, but it wont be a surprise if you land at the top of the nice list. Youre on a roll in terms of kindness. It helps that people genuinely need the kind of help that only you seem to be able to give. Also, youll be extremely AQUARIUS Youre admirably generous by nature, but right now is a good time to give that a break. Dont let people know that youre available, or they will eat up your time with endless needs. Some of your hours need to be treated as sacred spaces in your schedule for doing absolutely nothing. Your good attitude depends on it! PISCES people hear what they want to hear. This week you will realize that this kind of selective hearing isnt helping you grow into the person you want to be, and so youll open your ears to the harder truths, the ones that point you in the direction of change. Also on Wednesday youre likely to make an auspicious trade. ARIES a big deal on the line. You want to close it. Theres a sales projection. You want to meet it. Theres an important person. You want to please her. These are the types of challenges you are well suited for. Youll put on your warriors armor, march into the battle and come away on Thursday with a victory. TAURUS Theres an art to wasting time. Those who do it well tend to be popular, successful and gifted with many more opportunities to waste time. Be glad that youre not so good at it this week. Youll still be successful, but it will take a while for people to understand and get on board with what youve set your mind to doing. GEMINI brain is in excellent shape. This week presents situations that demand both sides of it to work at the same time. Youll be creative and organized. Youll do math and execute feats of illogical beauty. Youll move people by appealing to their wholeness, not just their idealized selves. CANCER word is the most important thing. You wont promise if you doubt your ability to follow through. Being able to walk away from a deal puts you in the best position to tell the truth or not to tell anything at all. Set yourself up as a person who doesnt really need anything. The less you need the more youll get. LEO changed by what you learn. The change takes no effort at all. The effort is only in the learning, but that also happens to be quite a lot of pleasure this week because you enjoy the subject matter. It helps if you stop trying to be such a puritan. Liking something doesnt automatically make it bad. VIRGO person who cant do a task often else can do it either. But you know better. Just because it has nothing to do with your talents doesnt mean it cant be helpful to you. This week youll join with people who have diverse interests and expertise and make money. LIBRA in some situations, but not for you. Thats why its your responsibility this week to point things out for the people who dont see the good in things. If they are not picking up on your advice by Thursday, seize the juicy opportunity for yourself! This Week's Birthdays: Its your year to see more of the world and to bring bits of it back home with you, too.

Crisis put behind us. All federal employes get back pay, as promised, plus get to keep the layoff. All's right with the world. Or is it? The debt ceiling lift is only temporary well over 17 trillion, there is no plan to stop its growth, the government and factions within factions are still split, a budget has not been passed, and the process will all be repeated in a few months. Oh, did I mention earmarks? Remember those little tags that congress people stick into bills to get goodies sent home to their constituents, ones that were supposed to be banned? They are back.

Washington, D.C. and its environs are booming, but the rest of the national economy (minus oil and gas exploration areas) is still stagnant: growing slowly, but fewer people working than in decades even as the population grows. More food stamps, more Social Security disabilities. The Keystone pipeline between Canada and the U.S. needed to boost oil production and processing in both countries probably will not be approved.

The original participants were Sabal Palm Galleries (tropical and local art), Lynne Brown Fine Arts (Browns portraits and other art works), Troyka Art Gallery (Russian and European artifacts), Outta basketry by Lisa Coopersmith), Kaleidoscope (stained glass work by (paintings and pottery by Nan and Gulfports Gallery Walk proved successful and drew increasing numbers of both locals and visitors by the St. Petersburg Times art critic highlighting the Gulfport art scene resulted in a mob of visitors that same evening, according to Turner. Lines of people waited to get into galleries. As Turner recalls, We felt like we had arrived!. By that time, additional galleries were opened, as others closed. A year after its origin, the terms Gallery Walk and Art Walk were often used interchangeably. Also at this time, gallery owners and locals began referring to the Waterfront District, particularly along Beach Boulevard, as the Art Village. The third Saturday Art Walk, originally called the Saturday Night Stroll, was added to the calendar in 1999. Now sponsored by the Gulfport Merchants Association, Art Walk expanded to include several blocks of outdoor exhibits by local and visiting artists several years ago. Gulfports status as an Art Village has remained attached through the years, although the number of time. An insurgence of restaurants to the same area in recent years has created an equally strong identity as a dining hub. Artists living and working in Gulfport continue to maintain a strong presence in the small, eclectic city, and a handful of galleries and retailers that include original art work in their mix add to the current Art Walk offerings. The combination of art and artists indoors and out, a variety of dining choices, live entertainment venues, street performers, and the Old Florida charm of the Gulfport Waterfront District combine to create todays lively Art Walk scene. Free parking and free trolley service to and from offsite parking areas is available during each Art Walk. The Industrial Arts Center of Gulfport (IACG) maintains quarters in Gulfport after a recent relocation to the Alley of the Arts off 29th Ave. S., near Beach Blvd. Demonstrations and classes in hot offered at the IACG.

Gabber October 24 October 30, 2013 45 By Scott Lafee Kate Perry Meet Perry Como Distracted driving is deadly. Each day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nine auto crashes involving a distracted driver. One of the typical explanations tends to be a driver fumbling with radio buttons, searching for a good song and not watching the road. Researchers wanted to know if the song itself might be risky, too. They recruited 85 drivers, all around 18 years old, just over half of them male. The subjects were each assigned to drive six challenging road trips (each 40 minutes in length) with an experienced driving instructor. Music was played on four of the trips: two with playlists provided by the teenage drivers, usually loud, listening/instrumental background music provided by the scientists. On two trips, no music was played at all. All 85 drivers committed at least three errors on one or more of their the drivers received verbal warnings required steering or braking by the instructor to avoid an accident. When the teen drivers were playing their own music, 98 percent published in the journal Accident Analysis & Prevention. When there was no music at all, the error rate dropped to 92 percent. When the music was easy listening, the error rate fell dramatically to 77 percent. BODY OF KNOWLEDGE Its estimated that, on any given day, 4 percent of humanity engages in, uh, the act of procreation. GET ME THAT. STAT! The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives estimates Americans own approximately 285 million guns, almost enough to supply a weapon to every man, woman and child living in the United States. STORIES FOR THE WAITING ROOM There are lots of places you typically dont want to grow hair, like your eyeballs. Consider the case of an Iranian man, described in the New England Journal of Medicine who was born with a tumor on his eye, just below the pupil. Called a limbal dermoid, the tumor was tiny and benign so doctors left it alone until the fellow was 19 years old and the tumor had inch in diameter. It was still deemed benign, but the tumor had become problematic in another way: It was sprouting hair. Limbal dermoids can do that, sometimes also growing cartilage or sweat glands. Needless to say, the this time. PHOBIA OF THE WEEK down stairs OBSERVATION I do not like broccoli. And I havent liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it.

46 Gabber October 24 October 30, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. How Should my Business be Set Up? (Part 1) advising and counseling numerous clients concerning how to legally set up a new business venture. As the types of business entities that may be utilized will be presented in this article and our next article. entrepreneur or new business owner may wish to consider are: A. Sole Proprietorship; B. General Partnership; C. Limited Partnership; D. Corporation; and E. "S" Corporation. In this article, we will examine the general legal requirements of a sole proprietorship and a general partnership. A. Sole Proprietorship 1. A sole proprietorship is an unincorporated business owned by a single individual. A sole proprietorship is not a legal entity separate from its owner. 2. The owner of a sole proprietorship has unlimited liability for the debts and obligations of the business. The owner, therefore, must rely on personal assets or insurance for protection against creditors. 3. For income tax purposes, income and loss of the sole proprietorship passes directly to the sole proprietor and is reported on his individual income tax return. 4. No special organizational documents are necessary to begin business as a sole proprietorship. 5. The advantage of a sole proprietorship is that it is a simple means of beginning a business. engages in business has a sole name with the Florida Secretary of B. General Partnership 1. A partnership is an unincorporated association of two or more individuals, corporations, or other entities 2. Like a sole proprietorship, a general partnership is not a separate legal entity. Each partner in a general partnership is personally liable for the partnership liabilities. separate income tax return for federal income tax purposes. However, this is merely an information return. Generally, all income passes to the general partners and is reported on their individual income tax returns. Losses are also passed through, subject to limitations, which will be made stricter if proposed changes in the tax laws are implemented. 4. Although no written documentation is necessary to form a general partnership, normally the rights and obligations of the various partners (including their shares of income, losses, and cash distributed a written partnership agreement. The partnership agreement may also specify the manner in which the business is to be operated, and may designate a managing general partner who serves the function of a the absence of contrary provisions in the partnership agreement, the business affairs of the partnership are governed by a majority vote of the partners. 5. Generally, the transfer of a than a transfer of corporate stock. Restrictions on the transferability of a in the partnership agreement, and transfers normally require the consent of the other partners. registration. 7. Generally, the death, insanity, or withdrawal of a general partner from the partnership "dissolves" the partnership, although the remaining partners may elect to continue the partnership business in a new partnership. 8. Generally, each general partner is an agent of the partnership and has the power to bind the partnership.
