FLORIDA RECEIVES D ON 2011 MARCH OF DIMES PREMATURE BIRTH REPORT CARDNovember 17 is First-Ever World Prematurity DayFlorida received a D on the March of Dimes 2011 Premature Birth Report Card, but the biggest news is the three-year, improving trend in its preterm birth rate. Our states preterm birth rate has improved this year. Were proud of this achievement and what we accomplished by working together with our partners for stronger, healthier babies, said Julie Samples, ARNP, MSN, March of Dimes Florida Chapter Program Services Committee Chair. We are determined to continue to nd and implement solutions to improve the health of babies, such as improving access to health care coverage, helping women quit smoking, and preventing unnecessary early c-sections, so more babies can get a healthy start in life. Factors that contribute to preterm birth improved in Florida. It earned a star for: Reducing the percentage of women of childbearing age who smoke Lowering the late preterm birth rate Since 2006, Floridas preterm birth rate has dropped to 13.5 percent. The rate of late preterm births is 9.6 percent; the rate of women smoking is 17.3 percent, and the rate of uninsured women is 28.5 percent. Quality improvement programs are key to lowering preterm birth rates, according to the March of Dimes. In Florida, March of Dimes supports programs that provide information and support to families with babies in a neonatal intensive care unit. We have grant-funded programs in Hillsborough and Duval Counties that provide education and support to women who have had a stillbirth, infant death, or who have had a baby in a NICU, to help them reduce their risks for future pregnancies. And we have the Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait campaign, which is working to prevent non-medically indicated deliveries before 39 weeks of pregnancy. A normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks, but in recent years it has become more common to schedule deliveries early at 37 or 38 weeks. The United States received a C on the March of Dimes Report Card. Grades are based on comparing the state and the nations 2009 preliminary preterm birth rates with the March of Dimes 2020 goal of 9.6 percent of all live births. The U.S. preterm birth rate is 12.2 percent down nearly 5 percent from the peak of 12.8 percent in 2006. Preterm birth, birth before 37 weeks completed gestation, is a serious health problem that costs the United States more than $26 billion annually, according to the Institute of Medicine. It is the leading cause of newborn death, and babies who survive an early birth often face the risk of lifetime health challenges, such as breathing problems, cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities and others. Even babies born just a few weeks early have higher rates of hospitalization and illness than full-term infants. At least 39 weeks of pregnancy are critical to a babys health because many important organs, including the brain, are not completely developed until then. The March of Dimes says its 2020 preterm birth goal can be achieved by a combination of activities: giving all women of childbearing age access to health care coverage, fully implementing proven interventions to reduce the risk of an early birth, such as not smoking during pregnancy, getting preconception and early prenatal care, progesterone treatments for women who are medically eligible, avoiding multiples from fertility treatments, avoiding elective c-sections and inductions before 39 weeks of pregnancy, and by funding new research on prevention of preterm birth. This year, for the rst time, a World Prematurity Day will be observed on November 17 by the March of Dimes along with organizations in Africa, Europe, and Australia. An estimated 13 million babies are born preterm and of those one million die as a result of their early birth, according to an October 2009 March of Dimes report on the global toll of preterm birth. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/worldprematurityday. The March of Dimes is the leading nonprot organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Page 9 Nov. 4 Nov. 17, 2011 Seminole Voice As the man looks at the photo of the young woman on the screen, he thinks nothing. He doesnt know her. Some students say, thats your daughter, up there, but he resists, quietly uncertain. They point to the printout of the very same pho to in his hands, telling him again. Recognition maybe, but memo ries certainly, come to him. Thats her, he remembers, he knows her name and little things about her. This man has dementia, and hes one of Winter Parks Brain Fitness Club members. He and a dozen others with Alzheimers or some type of dementia gather at the First United Methodist Church in Winter Park two days a week to exercise their minds and bodies. Director Peggy Bargmann, a regis tered nurse who has specialized in dementia for 25 years, partnered with the University of Central Florida communicative sciences and disorders masters program to form the Club in 2007. They offer brain building, physical exercise, friendship and speech therapy. Prompting conversation week, they meet with Rollins College freshman students for a photography class. The students and Brain members each have an assignment to complete, and then they discuss their photos in class. Were trying to make that con nection, Rollins student David Cottrell said. When you look at a photo, it brings you back to that moment. For the members with demen tia, that moment might not be ex actly whats in the photo they dis cuss with the students that week. Sometimes they dont remember taking the picture, but the photo almost always sparks some mem ory or conversation. Creative and critical thinking will help anyone in terms of their brain activity, said Dawn Roe, professor of the photograph-aslanguage course. Talent revealed The Brain Fitness members and students work in small and large groups, discussing what they see in the photos, the feelings they bring up and what they hope others might think or wonder. Then they all come together to talk about a few featured photos. There is one of a book on a table, and they muse about where it might have been taken, at what angle, and how pretty the light hits the items sitting there. Another featured is one of the members taking a photo of himself in a mirror. They discuss contrast, light and dark. While some of the young students at tentions wander, the members are completely engaged. These so phisticated trains of thought and talk take focus and attention, and thats a great brain workout, Barg mann said. A lot of [the photos] are re markable there is clarity and thought at the moment they take the photo, Roe said. Restoring worth Many members take photos theyre very proud of. One mem ber shows pictures of a beautiful sunset hes taken in his backyard, which faces a lake. The colors, pink and yellow, gleam off the water. He shows them to every one each week. The member who took a photo of himself in the mir ror takes the assignments very seriously, and has a lot of talent, Bargmann said. He is a man living with de mentia, living with so many loss es, and now, heres a new skill he has, she said. You want a sense of worth and this certainly does that. The students have learned to see that, too, with seniors strug gling against losing abilities. Its very frustrating for them, Cottrell said. Something that was so easy all of a sudden is out the window. Learning from each other And it wasnt easy for the stu surprised to hear they would be working with the Brain Fitness Club. In the beginning, members didnt remember them; now they know their names. While the room was once quiet, now it whis pers with friendly talk. Student Brad Baker said hes learned so much from the members, not just about the disease itself, but about history and life, too. Its a place for them to feel safe and accepted. I feel like thats mostly what were here for, to listen to what they have to say, Baker said. And even though this class is no miracle cure, the students said they have a strong feeling that it is helping, somehow. I feel like our time here isnt really wasted whether its big or small its still making an im pact, Cottrell said. Bargmann hears it after the class, the members tell her that go ing there two days a week makes a difference in their lives; they say its important to them, that they can focus just a little bit better. Whether we can measure that or not, its the feeling, Bargmann said. They feel hope. SENIOR VOICE THRIVE @ 55 AND BEYOND!

The occasion marked the first time in Major League his tory that two players finished in a tie in the MVP balloting. After a game of all-out dominance followed by one of the toughest matchups all season, the Knights the season to have a shot at post season play. But thats something Head Coach George OLeary admitted will require an undefeated end to the season. Its going to be tough, OLeary said of his UCF teams schedule for the rest of the sea son. Nov. 3 at press time, the Knights faced a Tulsa team (5-3, 4-0) that hadnt yet lost to a conference op ponent. They were coming off a 41-0 shutdown of Memphis that erased some bad memories from tough losses. Coming up Nov. 12, the Knights will face a Southern Miss team (7-1, 3-1) that as of Week 10 was ranked No. 25 in the BCS standings. The Golden Eagles have domi nated the Conference USA East standings since early in the sea son. After an early hiccup against Marshall that saw them lose their only matchup of the season, the Eagles went on a tear, ripping through six straight teams. On Oct. 29, the Eagles smashed UTEP on the road, 31-13, wielding a balanced offense with 260 yards on the ground and 190 in the air. But their defense allowed UTEP to out-pass them, airing the ball out for 194 yards in the game. The air is where the Eagles allowed with the secondary failing to stop some big plays. Big passing plays could be where the Knights Blake Bortles comes into the picture, having al ready shown himself capable of Knights quarterback Jeff Godfrey wont be able to give Southern Miss trouble. When the Eagles played Navy on Oct. 8, they had a hard time against sneaky quarter back Kriss Proctor, who threw for only 102 yards but ripped through the Southern Miss defense for 123 rushing yards. That option play gave Navy most of its 20 rushing The Knights will have to take their show on the road to keep their season alive. Theyll kick off against Southern Miss at 8 p.m. Nov. 12, with the game hitting the airwaves on CBS Sports Net work.

Knights need undefeated nish After mid-season hiccups, UCF looks to nish awlessly in conference play ISAAC BABCOCK The V oice The Lions are closer to the play offs after a thrilling 29-26 win over district rival Oak Ridge on Friday, Oct. 28. Now they take on a strug gling local rival with a chance at clinching a playoff spot. Oviedo (6-2, 2-0) didnt lead Oak Ridge (5-3, 1-2) until the fourth quarter of their recent matchup, after the Pioneers leapt out with two quick scores before the game stagnated offensively for both teams. But over the course of the second half, they slowly built a comeback, then watched the Pioneers trade touchdowns with game. A long kickoff return by A.J. Coney got his team into Pioneer territory with less than two min utes to spare. Then quarterback Jurell Green took the ball 32 yards into the end zone to cap the come back. Coming up at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, at home, the Lions host the rival Bears, who are mired in one of the worst seasons in Winter Springs history. Winter Springs The Lake Howell football team (36, 1-3) hadnt won two games in a row since 2007. On Oct. 28, Winter Springs (1-7, 0-3) gave the school Silver Hawks team captains were in middle school. In that 35-28 shocker, the Bears actually led 21-7 at halftime. By the start of the fourth quarter, the Hawks had taken the lead. The Bears made an attempt at a come back, tying up the game late in the quarter, but watched in horror as clock and returned for a touch down to end it. Theyll travel to Oviedo for a 7:30 p.m. Nov. 4 kickoff. Hagerty The Huskies recovered some mo rale with a 41-28 win over Semi nole (2-6, 1-3) Oct. 28, lifting them to 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the dis trict.

TALK T O SANDI > A funny thing has happened to how we in the past few weeks, as the mass outcry about Americas wealth and income dis parity has grown louder. More and more people have started to realize that redistri bution isnt some harbinger of a dystopian future where the average family loses all its money to greedy homeless people liv ing off government cheese. Redistribution isnt some hobo-en riching peril to be prevented. Its already site direction than where many at the top of Americas economic food chain would lead us to believe. Its why a story Tuesday morning in the Orlando Sentinel about $5 bank fees disappearing wasnt just on the front page; it was the banner headline. Those check ing and debit card fees had been put in place by many of Americas largest banks just how broad the gap between their eco nomic fantasy and our reality really was.

This fall term the four undergraduates came together in the university Cornerstone course designed to enhance community service. The students all jumped on board with the Wishes for Kids program out of Fern Park. Wishes for Kids (part of New Hope for Kids in Maitland) grants wishes to seriously ill children in Central Florida, providing them with hope and an opportunity to share an extraordinary experience with their families. The students received training in the classroom, as well as instruction from Rosie Wilder, executive director of the Wishes for Kids program. The students chose to help grant the wish of 16-year-old Jennifer Ruben of Longwood. Although the teen was recovering from a serious neurological illness, she had nevertheless made raising funds for other ill children a priority. Jennys dream was to visit the set of the television show Greys Anatomy, which had enhanced her desire to become a doctor and had provided her with end less hours of entertainment during her long recovery. The students ambitiously planned a large-scale fundraising event that took place in mid-October at Bar Louie in Dr. Phillips, where 15 percent of the tab went toward Jennys wish and the New Hope organization. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, Bar Louie was decked out for the event, and each student helped by bringing guests. The Ruben family assisted the students efforts by adding items for the silent auc tion and contributing letters of support on behalf of their daughters academic achievement, fundraising and community involvement from Florida Senate Major ity Leader Andrew Gardiner as well as Orlando Sentinel columnist Greg Dawson. Larry, simply known as the man at the bar approached the students with a $100 donation. The four students had laid the groundwork for Jennys wish and brought new hope into the lives of the Rubens.

When a job seeker comes back and says they got the job, it makes my heart happy. I recently received an email from a job seeker who attended some classes on job search and interviewing and had put her new found knowledge into practice. The big takeaway she had was what she learned about the 30-second intro or elevator speech. I know I have talked about this is important. Whether you meet someone at a networking event or on a phone or in-person interview, what you say when you are asked about yourself matters. I always joke around when I teach the 30-second intro and say My name is Sandi, I am married, have three children and I am a dog lover wannabe. This tells them nothing about who I really am and how I could help their company. The better response would be I have 15 years of human resources and recruiting experience, and I have been working in passion is connecting people with their next job. This gives a brief summary of Practice your 30 seconds on friends and family and then in networking situ ations. The other very important note is to make sure you take some time to stop and listen to the other person. Dont leave the interviewer or person you are end the conversation. Instead tell stories that will keep them interested. I would love to hear your 30 seconds. Please email me. Questions? Write me.

Thats a big win for the Occupy Wall Street movement, which began protesting Americas record income disparity and greedy banks among other things nearly two months ago. And as that move ment has grown, its message has gained traction. According to a joint New York Times/CBS News poll released last week, two out of three Americans now believe the nations wealth should be more evenly distributed. Maybe thats a response to the growing feeling that Americas longstanding narra tive of going from rags to riches through hard work has been replaced with the grim reality of an economic and political system that stacks the odds massively in favor of those who are already rich. But theres a limit to that excess, and we may have just reached a breaking point. Just as wealthy banks were deciding that we should pay more, American consumers said its time for some payback.

FLORIDA RECEIVES D ON 2011 MARCH OF DIMES PREMATURE BIRTH REPORT CARDNovember 17 is First-Ever World Prematurity DayFlorida received a D on the March of Dimes 2011 Premature Birth Report Card, but the biggest news is the three-year, improving trend in its preterm birth rate. Our states preterm birth rate has improved this year. Were proud of this achievement and what we accomplished by working together with our partners for stronger, healthier babies, said Julie Samples, ARNP, MSN, March of Dimes Florida Chapter Program Services Committee Chair. We are determined to continue to nd and implement solutions to improve the health of babies, such as improving access to health care coverage, helping women quit smoking, and preventing unnecessary early c-sections, so more babies can get a healthy start in life. Factors that contribute to preterm birth improved in Florida. It earned a star for: Reducing the percentage of women of childbearing age who smoke Lowering the late preterm birth rate Since 2006, Floridas preterm birth rate has dropped to 13.5 percent. The rate of late preterm births is 9.6 percent; the rate of women smoking is 17.3 percent, and the rate of uninsured women is 28.5 percent. Quality improvement programs are key to lowering preterm birth rates, according to the March of Dimes. In Florida, March of Dimes supports programs that provide information and support to families with babies in a neonatal intensive care unit. We have grant-funded programs in Hillsborough and Duval Counties that provide education and support to women who have had a stillbirth, infant death, or who have had a baby in a NICU, to help them reduce their risks for future pregnancies. And we have the Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait campaign, which is working to prevent non-medically indicated deliveries before 39 weeks of pregnancy. A normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks, but in recent years it has become more common to schedule deliveries early at 37 or 38 weeks. The United States received a C on the March of Dimes Report Card. Grades are based on comparing the state and the nations 2009 preliminary preterm birth rates with the March of Dimes 2020 goal of 9.6 percent of all live births. The U.S. preterm birth rate is 12.2 percent down nearly 5 percent from the peak of 12.8 percent in 2006. Preterm birth, birth before 37 weeks completed gestation, is a serious health problem that costs the United States more than $26 billion annually, according to the Institute of Medicine. It is the leading cause of newborn death, and babies who survive an early birth often face the risk of lifetime health challenges, such as breathing problems, cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities and others. Even babies born just a few weeks early have higher rates of hospitalization and illness than full-term infants. At least 39 weeks of pregnancy are critical to a babys health because many important organs, including the brain, are not completely developed until then. The March of Dimes says its 2020 preterm birth goal can be achieved by a combination of activities: giving all women of childbearing age access to health care coverage, fully implementing proven interventions to reduce the risk of an early birth, such as not smoking during pregnancy, getting preconception and early prenatal care, progesterone treatments for women who are medically eligible, avoiding multiples from fertility treatments, avoiding elective c-sections and inductions before 39 weeks of pregnancy, and by funding new research on prevention of preterm birth. This year, for the rst time, a World Prematurity Day will be observed on November 17 by the March of Dimes along with organizations in Africa, Europe, and Australia. An estimated 13 million babies are born preterm and of those one million die as a result of their early birth, according to an October 2009 March of Dimes report on the global toll of preterm birth. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/worldprematurityday. The March of Dimes is the leading nonprot organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Page 9 Nov. 4 Nov. 17, 2011 Seminole Voice As the man looks at the photo of the young woman on the screen, he thinks nothing. He doesnt know her. Some students say, thats your daughter, up there, but he resists, quietly uncertain. They point to the printout of the very same pho to in his hands, telling him again. Recognition maybe, but memories certainly, come to him. Thats her, he remembers, he knows her name and little things about her. This man has dementia, and hes one of Winter Parks Brain Fitness Club members. He and a dozen others with Alzheimers or some type of dementia gather at the First United Methodist Church in Winter Park two days a week to exercise their minds and bodies. Director Peggy Bargmann, a registered nurse who has specialized in dementia for 25 years, partnered with the University of Central Florida communicative sciences and disorders masters program to form the Club in 2007. They offer brain building, physical exercise, friendship and speech therapy. Prompting conversation week, they meet with Rollins College freshman students for a photography class. The students and Brain members each have an assignment to complete, and then they discuss their photos in class. Were trying to make that connection, Rollins student David Cottrell said. When you look at a photo, it brings you back to that moment. For the members with dementia, that moment might not be ex actly whats in the photo they discuss with the students that week. Sometimes they dont remember taking the picture, but the photo almost always sparks some mem ory or conversation. Creative and critical thinking will help anyone in terms of their brain activity, said Dawn Roe, professor of the photograph-aslanguage course. Talent revealedThe Brain Fitness members and students work in small and large groups, discussing what they see in the photos, the feelings they bring up and what they hope others might think or wonder. Then they all come together to talk about a few featured photos. There is one of a book on a table, and they muse about where it might have been taken, at what angle, and how pretty the light hits the items sitting there. Another featured is one of the members taking a photo of himself in a mirror. They discuss contrast, light and dark. While some of the young students at tentions wander, the members are completely engaged. These sophisticated trains of thought and talk take focus and attention, and thats a great brain workout, Barg mann said. A lot of [the photos] are remarkable there is clarity and thought at the moment they take the photo, Roe said.Restoring worth Many members take photos theyre very proud of. One mem ber shows pictures of a beautiful sunset hes taken in his backyard, which faces a lake. The colors, pink and yellow, gleam off the water. He shows them to everyone each week. The member who took a photo of himself in the mir ror takes the assignments very seriously, and has a lot of talent, Bargmann said. He is a man living with de mentia, living with so many loss es, and now, heres a new skill he has, she said. You want a sense of worth and this certainly does that. The students have learned to see that, too, with seniors struggling against losing abilities. Its very frustrating for them, Cottrell said. Something that was so easy all of a sudden is out the window.Learning from each otherAnd it wasnt easy for the stusurprised to hear they would be working with the Brain Fitness Club. In the beginning, members didnt remember them; now they know their names. While the room was once quiet, now it whis pers with friendly talk. Student Brad Baker said hes learned so much from the members, not just about the disease itself, but about history and life, too. Its a place for them to feel safe and accepted. I feel like thats mostly what were here for, to listen to what they have to say, Baker said. And even though this class is no miracle cure, the students said they have a strong feeling that it is helping, somehow. I feel like our time here isnt really wasted whether its big or small its still making an im pact, Cottrell said. Bargmann hears it after the class, the members tell her that go ing there two days a week makes a difference in their lives; they say its important to them, that they can focus just a little bit better. Whether we can measure that or not, its the feeling, Bargmann said. They feel hope. SENIOR VOICE thriveTHRIVE @ 55 andAND beyondBEYOND!

The occasion marked the first time in Major League his tory that two players finished in a tie in the MVP balloting.After a game of all-out dominance followed by one of the toughest matchups all season, the Knights the season to have a shot at post season play. But thats something Head Coach George OLeary admitted will require an undefeated end to the season. Its going to be tough, OLeary said of his UCF teams schedule for the rest of the season. Nov. 3 at press time, the Knights faced a Tulsa team (5-3, 4-0) that hadnt yet lost to a conference op ponent. They were coming off a 41-0 shutdown of Memphis that erased some bad memories from tough losses. Coming up Nov. 12, the Knights will face a Southern Miss team (7-1, 3-1) that as of Week 10 was ranked No. 25 in the BCS standings. The Golden Eagles have domi nated the Conference USA East standings since early in the sea son. After an early hiccup against Marshall that saw them lose their only matchup of the season, the Eagles went on a tear, ripping through six straight teams. On Oct. 29, the Eagles smashed UTEP on the road, 31-13, wielding a balanced offense with 260 yards on the ground and 190 in the air. But their defense allowed UTEP to out-pass them, airing the ball out for 194 yards in the game. The air is where the Eagles allowed with the secondary failing to stop some big plays. Big passing plays could be where the Knights Blake Bortles comes into the picture, having already shown himself capable of Knights quarterback Jeff Godfrey wont be able to give Southern Miss trouble. When the Eagles played Navy on Oct. 8, they had a hard time against sneaky quarter back Kriss Proctor, who threw for only 102 yards but ripped through the Southern Miss defense for 123 rushing yards. That option play gave Navy most of its 20 rushing The Knights will have to take their show on the road to keep their season alive. Theyll kick off against Southern Miss at 8 p.m. Nov. 12, with the game hitting the airwaves on CBS Sports Net work.

More and more people have started to realize that redistri bution isnt some harbinger of a dystopian future where the average family loses all its money to greedy homeless people living off government cheese. Redistribution isnt some hobo-enriching peril to be prevented. Its already site direction than where many at the top of Americas economic food chain would lead us to believe. Its why a story Tuesday morning in the Orlando Sentinel about $5 bank fees disappearing wasnt just on the front page; it was the banner headline. Those checking and debit card fees had been put in place by many of Americas largest banks just how broad the gap between their eco nomic fantasy and our reality really was. The banks, already making massive profits, wanted even more money. American consumers, still struggling to make ends meet in the wake of the Great Recession, had nothing left to give. According to the economic books, our recession ended in July 2009. The banks quickly resumed raking in billions again. But a year and a half later, most Americans are still waiting for the real recession continue to hover around 10 percent, with Before American consumers could get new jobs and get back on their feet again, banks hit them while they were down, in stituting new fees while they were already Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America all jumped into the feeding frenzy.

This fall term the four undergraduates came together in the university Cornerstone course designed to enhance community service. The students all jumped on board with the Wishes for Kids program out of Fern Park. Wishes for Kids (part of New Hope for Kids in Maitland) grants wishes to seriously ill children in Central Florida, providing them with hope and an opportunity to share an extraordinary experience with their families. The students received training in the classroom, as well as instruction from Rosie Wilder, executive director of the Wishes for Kids program. The students chose to help grant the wish of 16-year-old Jennifer Ruben of Longwood. Although the teen was recovering from a serious neurological illness, she had nevertheless made raising funds for other ill children a priority. Jennys dream was to visit the set of the television show Greys Anatomy, which had enhanced her desire to become a doctor and had provided her with endless hours of entertainment during her long recovery. The students ambitiously planned a large-scale fundraising event that took place in mid-October at Bar Louie in Dr. Phillips, where 15 percent of the tab went toward Jennys wish and the New Hope organization. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, Bar Louie was decked out for the event, and each student helped by bringing guests. The Ruben family assisted the students efforts by adding items for the silent auction and contributing letters of support on behalf of their daughters academic achievement, fundraising and community involvement from Florida Senate Major ity Leader Andrew Gardiner as well as Orlando Sentinel columnist Greg Dawson. Larry, simply known as the man at the bar approached the students with a $100 donation. The four students had laid the groundwork for Jennys wish and brought new hope into the lives of the Rubens.

When a job seeker comes back and says they got the job, it makes my heart happy. I recently received an email from a job seeker who attended some classes on job search and interviewing and had put her newfound knowledge into practice. The big takeaway she had was what she learned about the 30-second intro or elevator speech. I know I have talked about this is important. Whether you meet someone at a networking event or on a phone or in-person interview, what you say when you are asked about yourself matters. I always joke around when I teach the 30-second intro and say My name is Sandi, I am married, have three children and I am a dog lover wannabe. This tells them nothing about who I really am and how I could help their company. The better response would be I have 15 years of human resources and recruiting experience, and I have been working in passion is connecting people with their next job. This gives a brief summary of Practice your 30 seconds on friends and family and then in networking situations. The other very important note is to make sure you take some time to stop and listen to the other person. Dont leave the interviewer or person you are end the conversation. Instead tell stories that will keep them interested. I would love to hear your 30 seconds. Please email me. Questions?

Thats a big win for the Occupy Wall Street movement, which began protesting Americas record income disparity and greedy banks among other things nearly two months ago. And as that movement has grown, its message has gained traction. According to a joint New York Times/CBS News poll released last week, two out of three Americans now believe the nations wealth should be more evenly distributed. Maybe thats a response to the growing feeling that Americas longstanding narrative of going from rags to riches through hard work has been replaced with the grim reality of an economic and political system that stacks the odds massively in favor of those who are already rich. But theres a limit to that excess, and we may have just reached a breaking point. Just as wealthy banks were deciding that we should pay more, American consumers said its time for some payback. opOPInNIonON | More angered over income gap CC OONTITINUEUED FROFROM pP Ag GE 14
