Two superstar magicians, when threatened by a street magicians performance, stage a new trick of their own. Opening this week: THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE Food service workers surprisingly thin An experiment in running a free clinic for city employees appears to have paid off in Oviedo, with medi cal costs cut by hundreds of thou sands of dollars as a result. The good news, according to ing from the Gehring Group: City employees are using regular doc more. Before the program began in 2010, city employees visited doc said. By 2012 that number dropped Prescription costs also dropped by more than 30 percent. Its nice to see that [cost sav ings] are coming in to fruition a little greater than we even expected in a two-year period, Mayor Dom inic Persampiere said. But employees are using it so much, its nearly over capacity. Employees may get sick and may not be able to get in that day, He said the city may need to ex pand that capacity soon. A fat jolly chef, in his crisp chef coat and puffy white hat, sings a little tune as he, surprisingly gracefully, twirls around the kitchen, alternating spoons and little taste test. stuff buttery rolls in their pockets and dine on rich foods between waiting tables. Its free, its there, so restaurant workers must be indulging. And theyre probably overweight. One University of Central tality dean thought so, until he crunched some numbers. My biggest surprise was when I found that wasnt the case access was not a factor, Dr. Abraham Pizam. I think we have the wrong impression, or the wrong stereotype about chefs. Pizam remembered attending a talk by a famous chef who was in a wheelchair and too heavy to use the wheelchair ramp to get crane to lift him up. That image has been en graved on my mind, Pizam said. And hes likely not the only one to picture chefs as the round, happy men with accents slurp ing fatty sauces off a spoon all day its an image we see in movies and on television. Those who havent worked in the food industry imagine the servers eat ing whatever they want while theyre at work. When Pizam thought about those ideas, he hypothesized that food service workers would have a higher likelihood of being overweight because of their access to food. He took nationally collected self-reported data, and sifted through the numbers. He found in that data, which was ana lyzed by the authors of Obesity male foodservice workers had an percent and were in the bottom service employees have lower rates of obesity ISAAC BABCOCK The Voice PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE VOICE Working around food may actually help keep weight off, contrary to com monly held stereotypes.

And once Pizam thought about his results, he wasnt either. These people are in constant motion, he said. You will see this is a pretty exhausting type of occupation. Murphy worked in the restau rant industry for 22 years before becoming a professor, and saw the changes to his own physique when he left the restaurant busi ness. As a professor, he spends time reading, on the computer and doing research. Its much dif ferent from the 12-hour days on his feet at a restaurant, where he pounds. In the restaurant business everybody is on their feet all day long, Murphy said. That burns a lot of calories. Its really busy and you dont always have time to eat most of the time when cooks eat, they eat standing up. Pizam, Murphy and Orlando dietician and nutritionist Dr. Kaye-Ann Taylor also mentioned getting tired of the food if you have access to donuts all day, you might not want to eat them after years of that and the heat and pressure that comes from spend ing hours in a kitchen as reasons food service workers might be less overweight than other oc cupations. Work keeps them in constant motion, many restau rants dont have break rooms and frown upon sitting between tables. about the opportunity to sit down, not about the food, Tay lor said about working in hospital food service. While food service employ ees arent the heaviest, Pizams research showed that there were study.

Page 7 Were now in the second semester of school, and maybe you notice that your child has some difficulty completing homework and classwork. Perhaps theyre just taking a little time to get back on track, but the truth is children are facing more challenging subjects than they did at the start of school. When struggling or feeling overwhelmed with new materials, students often avoid frustration by not com pleting their work. Teachers then punish this perceived irresponsibility with poor grades. It is concerning to find your child developing a habit of submitting incomplete work, or not turning it in at all. We know our society rewards responsibility and strong work ethic, so developing such a habit can lead to serious repercussions beyond a couple of bad grades. However, not turning in schoolwork isnt necessarily a sign of an unintelligent student. On the contrary, a pattern of submit ting incomplete work can be caused by many different factors, such as lack of organization or time management. When parents realize their child has developed a habit of missing assignments, the natural in stinct of many is to try to curb this behavior ASAP. Interventions in the form of lectures and punishments seem like the way to go for dramatic results, but they often trigger the op posite: denial, defensiveness, and anger. The keys to a more positive, longterm change in your childs academic habits are patience and understanding. Try some of these measured methods: skills and set realistic expectations. Use this understanding to help your child establish specific academic goals (for instance, a B in History). such as keeping track of assignments and deadlines or developing a study schedule to help with time management. work and performance guidelines, as well as underline what will happen if the rules are followed or broken. Setting up new ground rules with clear conse quences can seem demanding at first, sparking some resistance. Be sure to explain the guide lines calmly, making sure your child under stands the reasons behind the new systems as well as the rewards for following the rules and consequences for ignoring them. Positive reinforcement and clear communication are gener ally more effective than criticism and punish ment; your child doesnt like fighting about homework anymore than you do. Here at the Tutoring Center, we offer our parents and students a Weekly Performance Checklist to keep track of improvements in work completion, rewarding children for their progress. This form brings together parents, teachers, and our Center in using positive reinforcement to improve a childs work ethic. Coupled with the methods above, your child will soon begin to accept even appreciate homework as just another part of their daily routine.My Child Doesnt Want to Do Homework! Help!

Page 8 I read with dismay a recent derecognize In tervarsity Chris on its campus. I fear that the decision, rather than increasing diversity, actu ally decreases it. A university or college ought to be a gather ing place for the free exchange of ideas. However, the freedom to bring competing ideas to the table is seriously hampered when the university attempts to predetermine how those vari ous constituencies are allowed to enter into debate and dialogue. quently shaped by strong leader ship teams. The de-recognition of Intervarsity was sparked by a leadership issue: a group leader was asked to step down when she could no longer adhere to In tervarsitys understanding of bib seem a bit narrow-minded on Intervarsitys part, but the leader in question was only removed from leadership, not membership in the group. In good organizations, leaders are the embodiment of group identity. Think for a moment about a swimming team that had a soccer fanatic as its captain, who believed that all sport ing events should do homage to soccer. That would soon get confusing for the swim team and ultimately affect its performance. Would asking the soccer-obsessed swim captain to stand down for the sake of the group be discrimi natory or simply good manage ment? Healthy debate is achieved when passionate people from dif fering perspec tives talk out their differences in an environ ment of fairness and respect. The school admin istrations attempt to control a groups leadership diffuses the passion of that position and leads to weak dialogue and poor learn ing. I wonder what the campus Muslim group talks about when its leader isnt even a follower of Islam? would be comfortable in having to welcome someone into leader ship who was less than fully af why is that sort of discernment not Intervarsitys? The sad thing about the derecognition of Intervarsity Chris has an international reputation for combining passionate faith with intellectual rigor. This is pre cisely the sort of group that could enhance diversity and cultural engagement on campus; instead its voice has been silenced. issue of what other voices have been silenced by draconian enforcement of discrimination policies. Discrimination is when you are passed over for promo tion or harassed or threatened or made fun of, not when someone disagrees with your perspective or sets healthy boundaries for future discourse. As a Christian, I have to confess that the church has not always handled itself very well. We have said unkind things. We have put people down when they have differed from us. And for those instances, we need to ask forgiveness. But I also want to point out that there are many Christians who do observe the rules of debate very well. I think that Intervarsity is among those weakens the colleges spirit of inquiry and intellectual freedom, and that makes me sad indeed. Rev.

Despite ongoing reservations, I believe that some parts of the Affordable Care Act can con ceivably be implemented with minimal dislocation, but only if the right policies are embraced by the administration. And thats why I think that the president is making a mistake in proposing potentially damaging changes to arguably the most effective part of Medicare, instead of building to drive long-term cost savings by keeping seniors healthy. The Medicare program com ponent in question is the Part D signed in 2003 (later implement to cover the drug coverage gap that that once existed in Medi cares plan for older and disabled Americans. Under Part D, seniors choose from a wide variety of privately run drug plans that negotiate individually with drug makers seniors now paying far less than they used to. According to a recent survey, proval rating and, unique among major federal programs enacted in recent years, will actually cost original estimates. Even better, improved access to drugs appears to be saving costs elsewhere: found every one percent increase .2 percent decrease in spending in Medicare. Part D works so well because it recognizes both the virtues, and the limits competitive markets. This is why President Obama and my fellow Democrats should capitalize on the important les sons weve learned from Part D and make the program their own. Put simply, both Democrats and to drive bipartisan cooperation and reduce health care spending through a proven government program. Medicare will be in bet ter shape as a result.
