2 Edition 113 September 6, 2012 through September 12 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By Boca Raton Composite Cadet Miller Caldwell Some could describe Summer Encampment 2012 as a great experience for all ages, including Ba sic Cadets, Cadet Staff, and even Senior Staff. Or even, It was a fun and exciting experience that had the ability to change your life forever. If I were to describe it in one statement, I would say that it was Exciting, and, action packed. Although my experiences were challenging, the mindset I was raised with helped me get through the plethora of difficulties. This years Encampment was probably the most challenging thing that I have done in my entire life, but it wasnt so rough so that my ability to lead would be diminished. The sleep was minimal, the PT was hard and even though something was tough or impossible, I still overcame the urge to falter under my own doubting mind. I believe this is greater than any medal or ribbon that one could achieve in their Civil Air Patrol career. An experience that I had as Flight Sergeant gave me great insight into what it means to be a leader. A Cadet of mine told me that he wanted to go home. So I asked, Why do you want to go home? He said, I want to leave because I dont think I am ready for this yet. So I told him, Its all in your mind and if you just try to do your best, then you can do everything that you put your mind to. I explained to him that when I was in his position, I was only 12 years old and I didnt think that I was ready for this either but I thought to myself that if I were to go home then I would doubt myself in the future and my mind would get weaker. I then asked him, So do you think that you can continue? He looked down at me smiling with a look of encouragement and said, I will try, but if in two days I still dont feel right, can I go home? I replied, If you feel like you shouldnt be here in the next two days then we will talk again. Two days later, that cadet won the Cadet of the Day award. He personally thanked me for convincing him that he didnt want to go home. I knew that he wanted to be there or else he wouldnt have come. This experience gave me the knowledge that a leaders job is to encourage and build confidence in his/her cadets, or anyone they lead. I have earned some things in my life, but none of them were greater than the rewarding feeling of getting my cadets through the Florida Wing Summer Encampment. Overall, attending this encampment was one of the best decisions that I have ever made and I plan on doing it again in the future. Bring YOUR CLOSEST NEIGHBOR The Boca Raton Tribune home with you.

This is the first time in over 10 years that the Consulate General of Brazil sponsors an event. This shows how much we believe in the link between Brazil and Boca Raton, said the Brazilian Consul General in Miami, Ambassador Helio Vitor Ramos Filho Plans for the Sept. 7 actually began a while ago when a contingent of city officials and community leaders visited the Brazilian Consulate in Miami. Representatives from Brazil shook hands with the locals and decided to call it a partnership. We are very excited for the event, said Boca Raton mayor Susan Whelchel. We are positive the city will embrace this great event with our Brazilian community, we are also in the process of adopting a sister city in Brazil as well.

Showtime starts at 7:30 p.m. when Batuke Samba Funk, a unique collective of musicians from Brazil and Miami, takes the stage to perform the classic samba/soul sound originating in Rio de Janiero in the late 1960s. The group combines the percussive grooves of Brazilian samba with the funk rhythms of American legends like James Brown and Earth, Wind & Fire. Batuke Samba Funk was founded in 2008 by bassist extraordinaire Diogo Olivera and features a revolving cast of the finest musicians playing guitars, bass, drums, vocals and Afro-Brazilian percussion. As a signature element of the show, the band will erupt into a samba jam session using traditional Brazilian drums as well as recycled objects such as cans, buckets and scrap metal to create a joyous carnival atmosphere. The nights entertainment culminates with the performance of South Floridas favorite Brazilia singer, Rose Max and her mesmerizing guitarist Ramatis Moraes. They will be firing up the streetside dance floor with authentic, classic samba music inspired by the nightclubs of Rio de Janiero accompa nied by a pulsating band and a lively percussion section. Maxs talent and performance has earned her several Miami New Times Best of awards as well as three Brazilian International Press Awards.

The morning-long event was organized by The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness, which teamed up with The University of Florida & Shands Healthcare Eating Disorder Recovery Center. More than 80 local and statewide medical and therapeutic professionals gathered to listen to keynote speaker Kevin Wandler, MD, chief of the EDRC of UF & Shands Health System and as sistant professor at the University of Florida. Wandler, gave an extensive presentation on the subject, discussing a va riety of topics including BDD criteria, the differences between BDD and eating disorders, and various treatment options. My main objective is to educate medical professionals on how to properly diagnose and effectively treat body dysmorphic disorders, said Wandler.

Photos courtesy of NCCIBOCA RATON -Florida Atlantic University recently received a $60,000 gift from best-selling author James Patterson to establish the James Patterson Teacher Education Scholarship Fund. The fund will award scholarships to eight College of Education students who are pursuing careers in teaching with special emphasis on reading education. Patterson has made it his mission to get children excited about reading, and believes that training the next generation of great teachers is essential to accomplishing this mission. On behalf of the entire university family, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Mr. Patterson for this gift, said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. His passion for education is truly inspiring, and we are so pleased that he recog nized FAUs College of Education for its long-standing commitment to excellence. We look forward to working with him to provide more training opportunities for the teachers of tomorrow. The James Patterson Teacher Educa tion Scholarship recipients will form a learning community that will supplement their regular program of study, and serve as hands-on instructional interns with mentors in Palm Beach County classrooms as reading specialists. Additionally, they will prepare and submit a report on practical and feasible ways to improve education in their city or state, which will be shared with Patterson. When I read about the excellent teaching programs at FAUs College of Educa tion, I was truly impressed, and I wanted to give a hand to these students as they strive to become great teachers, said Patterson. This has been a wonderful opportunity for me to help FAUs faculty and students, who in turn will help children develop a passion for reading. Patterson currently supports scholarships at several other universities including his alma maters, Manhattan College and Vanderbilt University, as well as Tulane and the University of Wisconsin. A resident of Palm Beach, he also has been active in the local community, speaking to students and meeting with teachers in Palm Beach County schools to discuss the importance of getting students excited about reading. We truly appreciate this gift from Mr. Patterson, and share his passion for providing quality training for our education students, as well as classroom assistance for our partners in Palm Beach County schools, said Jennifer OFlannery Anderson, Ph.D., vice president of community engagement and executive director of the FAU Foundation. Teachers help to open the doors of opportunity for all, and gifts from generous donors like Mr. Patterson help to ensure that FAUs College of Education can continue to have a positive impact on our community.The Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL Community News see pics pg.

8 Edition 113 September 6, 2012 through September 12 2012www.bocaratontribune.com All letters to the editor should be sent to: The Boca Raton Tribune, Dear Mr. Gora, I read your article but I do not understand if in the end, at present Florida law does or does not require to include financial affidavits as public records in divorce judgements. I ask this question because last July I got an uncontested divorce with a Marital Settlement Agreement and at that time was not even discussed at the hearing the fact that we would have prefered not having our financial affidavits in public records. Could I at this point request the court of not making them publicly available? What is the the Florida Statues governing this issue? Thank you very much for your reply that I am confident will help me to better understand the issue. Sincerely yours. Manuela Bramante Thank you for the wonderful article,Gina! I look forward to seeing you again when all members of the band are together! I hope you dont mind if I make some typo corrections, though. That incredible Bassist is Charles Gasper, the two Guitarists were filling in for the one and only Dave Scott and also, IBC trip to Memphis for the 2011 International Blues Competition was David Shelley and Bluestone. Please come to more shows! You are a delight! DenIse McLennan My wife and I have taken another plunge into the world of high technology. We recently became the owners of devices called android phones. To date, Ive always associated the term android with science fiction. You know, Commander Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation, wasnt he an android? Our visit to a local mobile telephone store wasnt intended to end this way. I just wanted to get a device to make telephone calls period. And the cellular phone I had been using for the past couple of years has become very unreliable. Many times when I called people, they would say, in the middle of my conversa tion, Youre breaking up, youre fading out. I cant hear you. Well, I waited a while, thinking it would go away. But it didnt. So I decided to trade it for something else. I had been using a flip phone an item that reminded me of the communicators from the original Star Trek series. I found myself trying to flip it open the way Captain Kirk did. I even developed that quirky, mildly sinister look that Kirk used to show after he closed up his communicator. (You know, Spock, Ive got a bad feeling about this.) But now I have to be content to speak into a piece of flat plastic that I hold against the side of my head like a pancake. My wife took an immediate hatred for her new phone. I encouraged her to give it time and shed get used to it. Now, she is not only using it as a phone, she is taking pictures with it, scrolling through her email and showing me photos that people have emailed to her. I, on the other hand, have barely figured out how to make calls. I have tried and failed to hook up my email. I have tried to take photos, but they all look like mush. I havent even ventured into the video area. How bad is this system? Let me give you an example. Just recently, I used the phone to call a company and pay a bill. I was having a nice conversation with a real human being on the other end. We signed off. Now, the logical step (according to those in the know) would be for me to press the red button that says end call. But the screen was black. I tapped it and prodded it and shook the phone and pushed the places where I thought the buttons might be. Sudden, the person I had been talking to came back on the line. Are you having any trouble, sir? he asked me. No, I said, Im just trying to turn the phone off. That was embarrassing. Now, I also have all these little squares called apps. Ive heard of them, but Ive never had to deal with them. Apparently, there are millions of apps in the cyber-world that allow you to connect to anything. I bet you could download an app that would allow you to order a McDonalds hamburger, just ketchup. There are apps to find the closest gas station, doughnut shop, dry cleaner, Chinese food purveyor or tire store. I actually asked the girl in the store and I am not making this up to put a Rush Limbaugh app on my phone. She DID IT. Of course, I told her to immediately take it off my phone. I will say the ring tone on the new phone is far superior to the one on my old phone. I had actually downloaded an absolutely awful rendition of an unknown rock song. It was so bad, even I was getting sick of it. I was actually thinking of asking Mitt Romney for one of the songs from his iPod. But I digress. Im told you can actually take classes in how to use this new fangled phone. Did anyone think wed ever reach this point? My wife has a friend who had to take a training course before she could drive her new car. Imagine, a new form of drivers ed for the 21st Century. My wife seems very happy with her phone. In the beginning, she was so upset she was willing to pay the $35 return fee to get her old phone back. But she is contently living in high-tech heaven. And me, Ill continue exploring the various options, hoping at least to get used to making phone calls. If thats all it ever does, its good enough for me.

Gradually they see the light of the day. They are human already, up to that point, but with a lengthy trajectory ahead, to be formed in every aspect of their being, unless death early removes them from the land of the living. In the majority of the cases, any human passes through various stages of development as continued growth remains a necessity if each is to turn out into what every human is capable of becoming. Some may not go very far, due to limitations and insuperable obstacles of manifold varieties. Nevertheless, the goal of every maturing indi vidual is to advance, and steadily contribute to the wellbeing of society, while making a living. In reality, from womb to tomb every member of the human race enters the world, and journeys in it, with an inbuilt job description that needs to be discovered, developed and deployed into appropriate meaningful activities! Life does not necessarily begin at 40, but at the moment each person is gripped by an idea and ideal which will propel that individual into life-long learning and continual productivity both for personal ful fillment and for the betterment of society. Human formation is life-long! It is early on that growing persons need to learn basic skills for survival and advancement on earth, healthy habits for the maintenance of physical, mental and emotional sanity, social mechanisms that guarantee salutary interactions and transactions with the rest of society, and much more! From an early stage also, persons need mentors, life coaches and others who can help guide one into holistic living, whereby no dimension of ones being is neglected. One cannot develop one aspect of life at the expense of others. Balance needs to be observed for the best possible results without any impediments on the progress which is expected until ones life on earth shall end! Indeed, it is most obvious that no one is born ready made, but neither should anyone proceed through life without the necessary efforts toward self-development, with the aid of others and in accordance with the directives left by the Creator for the complete advantage of every human creature! his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. This week I have decided to place this sensational column written by Rick Boxx as my Thoughts from the Pub lisher. I hope you enjoy this column as much I have enjoyed it. Have a great week and God bless. Douglas Heizer Many universities and corporate trainers teach business ethics from a perspective sometimes referred to as moral relativism. This basically means they do not believe in objective truth; to them, truth is in the eye of the beholder. As a result, according to this way of thinking, whatever an individual regards as right is good enough. Personally, I disagree with this philosophy. If truth is something we can mold and shape according to our desires and preference, then the person that conducts business in an unscrupulous, predatory manner is as ethical as the individual that seeks to uphold the highest standards of honesty and integrity. The Bible describes this type of belief system when it states, everyone did what was right in his own eyes (Judges 21:25). Even thousands of years ago, people rejected the existence of objective truth. This is not a modern, 21stcentury concept. As an employer, even if we do not subscribe to moral relativism, it is important to remember everyone has their own worldview, and they live and act ac cording to it. For instance, if they are self-absorbed, they will likely make decisions and act according to what benefits them most. If they make decisions based on family values they have learned, that could be good or it could be bad. What if you discover too late that they were raised by mobsters, swindlers or criminals? You might not like those family values being brought into your company! Although you cannot change or modify the worldviews of individual employees, you can seek to clearly communicate the worldview by which you want your business or department to be run. This is where mission statements, vision statements and value statements are extremely useful. They put on paper the standards, policies, overall goals and objectives the company desires to achieve and maintain. These statements express your beliefs, the founda tional principles that govern your practices, offer the big picture of what you hope to accomplish, and verbalize truth as your company perceives it. A big question facing many of us in the business and professional world today is one that was raised by Pontius Pilate, who served as judge at the trial of Jesus before His crucifixion. Pilate asked, What is truth? (John 18:38). He was suggesting truth and the right worldview is whatever one wants it to be. However, my experience has taught me that if everything is true, then nothing is true. I have learned the only objective truth that is time-tested and will help you in standardizing and solidifying your company values is the Bible. Psalm 119:152 teaches, Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever. Many other verses in that Psalm also affirm the enduring, unchanging truths, precepts and principles established in the Word of God. If you desire to oversee or be part of an ethical workplace, I recommend you establish a worldview that lasts forever, one that does not change according to the need of the moment or shifting whims of society. The Scriptures provide the only source for that. They worked well in the 1st century and they are good for the 21st century as well.Copyright 2012, Integrity Resource Center, Inc.

This years work focuses on Chart yOUR Path, as Cabinet members work on strengthening their leadership and affirming their commitment, becoming agents of positive change toward a strong and vibrant Jewish community and world. Participants had access to many opportunities for learning and inspiration. A number of local Jewish community leaders have served on the Cabinet, including Larry Blair, the Federa tions third current member and chair of Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service in Boca Raton. Ambassador Yehuda Avner, former Israeli diplomat and prime ministerial advisor, delivered the Retreats keynote address, and Arna Poupko Fisher, a Jewish educator, author and speaker, served as scholar-in-residence.

The Cabinet Retreat re-energizes and strengthens the leadership and philanthropic journey of young leaders to ensure there will continue to be vibrant and thriving Jewish communities across America, said Rosenstrauch, returning from his third NYL Cabinet Retreat. This year we focused on the changing federation landscape, gathering great ideas to implement in our community. I initially joined Cabinet as a member of the Chicago Jewish community, and am now proud to represent South Palm Beach County. My family and I have received amazing support from this Young Adult community since moving here and engaging two years ago. The challenges we face as a community today and will face tomorrow are different and significant, said Drowos, who has attended four Retreats. The NYL Cabinet has proven itself as the premier leadership program in the Federation community, and now it is our generations turn to take up the baton and be part of the solution. My experiences on the Cabinet have been extremely valuable in raising funds and reaching out locally. At our Federations Young Adult Division, its clear that young individuals, couples and families are a dynamic, vital and highly valued part of our Jewish community, added Drowos. We have our own comprehensive YAD Leadership Educa tion and Development Series (LEADS) as well as a wealth of other activities for young adults. We look forward to meeting and working with natives to newcomers to seasoned young leaders who, like us, wish to ensure a strong vibrant Jewish community for generations to come. The Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County serves the Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Highland Beach areas, raising and allocating millions of dollars each year to meet vital needs locally, in Isra el and worldwide. The Federations Young Adult Division provides a wide variety of networking, social, family and philanthropic opportunities for younger adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s to engage with the Jewish community.

The grant, to be disbursed over the next five years, will serve 63 students at four Broward County high schools: Blanche Ely, Boyd Anderson, Coconut Creek and Dillard. I am very proud of the success we have had in FAUs Upward Bound program, and our recent award of a new grant for $1.3 million. This investment in our program is a reflection of the improvement we have made in the lives of dozens of low income and first generation college students, said Harold Ford Jr., Ph.D., project director of Upward Bound. Because of the vision of FAUs senior administrators Drs. Brown and King, we were successful in being awarded a grant that expanded our program, while nearly 20 percent of other programs lost funding. I am very confident that as Upward Bound grows we will continue to improve the lives of countless families and the community as a whole. The main goal of the grant is to increase high school and college graduation rates of low-income students and/or those who would be the first to graduate in their family from college. This grant represents FAUs commitment to public engagement and the promotion of academic and personal development. By providing afterschool tutoring, college prep courses, college tours and exposure to cultural enrichment activities, Upward Bound helps students graduate from high school, be admitted to and graduate from college.

The hosting of the third and final presidential debate kicks off the schools 50th anniversary. And during the last several months, Lynn has undergone many additions, changes and improvements and instituted several new initiatives. Lynns new 5-lane entrance on Military Trail is complete, with a new traffic signal which should be functioning by early September. A new Potomac Road entrance was created just west of the long-existing entrance that leads directly to the new temporary parking lot (that is being used for overflow traffic since Lynns North Lot is closed for debate-related work). Lynns major Going Green initiative, in partnership with Siemens Building Technology, has begun and most campus buildings will see multiple improvements and upgrades.

FAUs Harbor Branch Center Treating Pilot Whales from Group Beached in Port St. LucieFORT PIERCE Florida Atlantic Universitys Harbor Branch Oceano graphic Institutes Rehabilitation Center continues to treat four juvenile whales that were transported to HBOI after a stranding event Saturday, September 1. In all, some 22 short-finned pilot whales were beached at Floridas Ava lon State Park Beach in St. Lucie County. On Sunday, September 3 at noon, one of the original five juvenile short-finned pilot whales initially brought to Harbor Branch expired. That whale was one of the males that appeared to be in fairly stable condition at approximately 10 a.m., but his health declined rapidly, said officials from HBOI. They said the four remaining whales blood parameters indicate inflammation, evidence of stress and infection, which is not uncommon in stranded marine mammals. In addition, they are juveniles that are still developing their immune systems and are experiencing stress due to being out of their natural environment and social structure. As a result of their immune systems being compromised, their prognosis is fairly guarded. Under the direction of Harbor Branch Staff Veterinarian Dr. Juli Goldstien and Sea World Veterinarians Dr. Michelle Davis and Dr. Stacy DiRocco, veterinarian technicians, animal care specialists and volunteers from Harbor Branchs Marine Mammal Research and Conservation Program, SeaWorld Orlando, The Marine Mammal Conservancy, University of Florida, and Ocean Embassy are providing care and monitoring the condition of the whales on a 24-hour basis. Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at FAU is a research institute dedi cated to exploration, innovation, con servation and education related to the oceans. Harbor Branch was founded in 1971 as a private non-profit organiza tion. In December 2007, Harbor Branch joined Florida Atlantic University. The institute specializes in ocean engineer ing, at-sea operations, drug discovery and biotechnology from the oceans, coastal ecology and conservation, marine mammal research and conservation, aquaculture, and marine education.

18 Edition 113 September 6, 2012 through September 12 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Cosmopolis which opened Aug. 24, was written before the current Occupy Wall Street ruckus. It was filmed by Canadian director David Cronenberg before the recent battle-ofclasses turmoil. It now seems prescient. Cronenberg wrote a screenplay based on Don DeLillos 2003 novel and completed filming in July, 2011 in Toronto, Canada. British actor Robert Pattinson, best known as Edward the vampire in the Twilight movies, plays Eric Packer, a 28-year-old financial genius in New York City. The action, what little there is, largely oc curs in Packers 30-foot stretch limousine attended by bodyguards, driver and stern guys with phones in their ears. I want a haircut, Packer announces imperially. What he wants, he gets, no matter what is going on in the rest of the world. Eric is arrogant, cruel and ruthless; qualities which are an asset in business and particularly in the volatile currency trading market, which he keeps tabs on via flicking video screens. A rat became a unit of currency, we are told at the outset. The rat in Erics case is the Japanese Yen. Eric has made a huge and reckless bet on the currency, and it will come back to bite him, so to speak, over the next few hours. Rats are a recurring motif in Cosmopolis. Protesters carry dead rats. Some dress up like rats and some carry huge rat puppets. In his long days journey into night in quest of a haircut, Eric will get turned down for sex by his recently betrothed wife (icy Sarah Gadon). He will have wild and athletic limousine sex with his middle-aged mistress Didi (Juliette Binoche) and a visiting hooker. He will hail his financial advisor (Emily Hampshire) in the middle of her daily jog and demand a meeting then and there. Eric will even get a prostate exam from his doctor in the limo as the outside world boils and protesters trash and spray-paint the white limo. Eric is detached, deadpan and soulless; qualities which Robert Pattinson is adept at conveying. It is almost as if he needs to experience pain to feel anything. He ultimately will, but the viewer will not feel sorry for him. There is very little to like, admire or embrace about Cosmopolis. If you are one of the angry 99-percenters, this film will confirm your opinion about selfish, greedy, mendacious bankers and titans of Wall Street. I dont think Cronenberg intended us to like this dark vision of corporate capitalism run amuck. I think he wanted us to feel disgust. Consider yourself forewarned. Two and a half stars New Total Recall finds Trouble right here on Earth Like the 1990 original, the new Total Recall is based on a 1966 Philip K. Dick short story and set in the future in 2084. Even the names are the same. Colin Farrell has taken over the Arnold Schwarzenegger role of fac tory worker Doug Quaid, who also becomes known as Hauser. Kate Beckinsale plays his wife Lori, formerly played by Sharon Stone. Alluring Jessica Bale plays the feisty freedom fighter Melinda, previously essayed by Rachel Ticotin. The setting is completely different. Instead of a real or imagined trip to Mars through an artificial memory implanted by a sinister company called Rekall (Slogan: We can remember it for you), the hero stays on Earth, which has been ravaged by chemical warfare with only two population centers remaining: United Federation of Britain, which looks like a futuristic, post-holocaust London, and The Colony, which looks like the worst rotting slums of Hong Kong. A critic friend of mine asked me when I thought Total Recall went over the top. The first few frames, I replied, and it stayed that way. Total Recall is even noisier and more bullet and explosion-ridden than the earlier summer reboots Spider-Man and Batman: Dark Knight Rises. What the three films have in common is a doomsday, totalitarian scenario. The message seems to be you cant trust the government, the police or the armed forces. Hmm, are the movie-makers trying to tell us something? What director Len Wiseman lacks in subtlety he makes up which sheer action and mayhem. I get a little tired of hearing the rata-tat-tat of automatic weapons firing bullets that just miss the mark every time, and ac tion heroes that take pounding after pounding with no broken bones. Ah, but Colin Farrell is a much better ac tor the Schwarzenegger ever was. We really do believe he is either losing his mind or the victim of some wickedly sinister plot. The sets and gadgets are incredible and the ladies are nice to look at as they go through their gymnastic action scenes. Sometimes thats all you need ask of a summer action flick.

Every session is different, and combines cardiovascular exercises with muscle strengthening exercises that utilize body weight and weight training, associated to exercises of short periods of maximal effort. The combination of the above men tioned exercises is able to produce a high calorie burn in a short period of time, and is generally practiced in small groups. Currently you may also find websites that publish videos with crossfit sessions to be done at home. But besides its benefits, this modality of exercise is not for everybody. In the crossfit there is no harmonious sequencing for the exercises, the only constant is that the exercises are performed with high intensity. However, once your muscles start to fatigue as the session progresses, your ability to maintain the correct form decreases as you continue to attempt to maintain the same levels of intensity and speed. This may lead to acute or overuse muscle and joint injuries. The best exercises modality is the one that offers cardiovascular and strengthening exercises in a balanced way, and with the least risk for inju ries. Always pay attention to your form during the exercises performance, and dont rush thru the sessions to prevent the risk of injury. Add abdominal exercises and yoga (but dont abuse of the stretching exercises), and you have a complete and balanced exercises routine. You may use crossfit as one of your exercises option, however, remember to respect your body and decrease the speed, focusing on your form whenever necessary. My kingdom for three portions of salmon! A study recently performed by the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Centre in Nashville, Tennessee, published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that women that consume the equiva lent to three portions of fish a week (rich in omega-3), presented with a decrease of 33% in the risk of polyps to the intestinal colon. They also presented with a decrease in levels of the prostaglandin E2 hormone, which is related to the presence of inflammation in the body. Unfortunately, the same could not be found in men. Doctor Harvey Murff, states that besides the attempt to consume more omega-3 sources, males have the tendency to consume a larger quantity of omega-6 sources, which decrease the efficacy of the in creased consumption of fish. Omega-6 is present abundantly in the diet of the greater majority of individuals, omega-3 is in disadvantage, making necessary to supplement with a high quality product.

She has written ten books on beauty, diet and health. The Health Dangers of Soda Pop (Carbonated Soft Drinks) So very often our health problems do not BEGIN on their own. WE encourage illness and disease little-by-little every day by NOT PREVENTING their cause. We even know better sometimes, but our bodies cells cant be fooled about what we put in our mouths. Take soda pop for instance. Some people drink it as if its water and they allow their children to do the same. Sure, carbonated soft drinks are primarily water, but all the other stuff in them can be toxicpoisonous.. lethal venomous seriously harmful. I never drink soda pop! Look at the ingredients in soda pop and the effect each might have on your body. Phosphoric Acid: May interfere with the bodys ability to use calcium, which can lead to osteoporosis or softening of the bones and teeth. Phosphoric acid also neutralizes the hydrochloric acid in your stomach, which can interfere with digestion. The soft drink industry argues that the phosphoric acid in soda pop contributes only about 2 percent of the phosphorus in the typical US diet. But, theres growing concern that if you drink a few cans of soda a day it can be damag ing when they are consumed during the peak bone-building years of childhood and adolescence. A study published by the FDAs Office of Special Nutritionals noted that a pattern of high phosphorus/ low calcium consumption, common in the American diet, is not conducive to optimizing peak bone mass in young women. In adulthood with less calcium available, the bones become more porous and prone to fracture. Sugar: Soft drink manufacturers are the largest single user of refined sugar in the United States. It is a proven fact that sugar increases insulin levels, which can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, premature aging and many more negative side effects. Most sodas include over 100 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of sugar. Aspartame: This chemical is used as a sugar substitute in diet soda. There are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame consumption including brain tumors, birth defects, diabetes, emotional disorders and epilepsy/seizures. Further, when aspartame is stored for long periods of time or kept in warm areas it changes to methanol, an alcohol that converts to formaldehyde and formic acid, which are known carcinogens. Caffeine: Caffeinated drinks over time can cause jitters, insomnia, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood cholesterol levels, vitamin and mineral depletion, breast lumps, birth defects, and perhaps some forms of cancer. Colas average about 28 percent of the amount of caffeine found in an 8-ounce cup of coffee, but diet colas -usually chosen by those who are trying to dodge calories and/or sugar -often pack a lot more caffeine. Dont wait for bad things to happen. If youre a soda drinker, switch to fruit juice or water The average American drinks an estimated 56 gallons of soft drinks in a year. Teenagers and children, who many soft drinks are marketed toward, are among the largest consumers. In the past 10 years, soft drink consumption among children has almost doubled in the United States. Teenage boys now drink, on average, three or more cans of soda per day, and 10 percent drink seven or more cans a day. The average for teenage girls is more than two cans a day, and 10 percent drink more than five cans a day. If you or your children are among this group, remember this: went from drinking less than one non-diet soda a day to one or more were nearly twice as likely to develop type 2 diabetes over a four-year period as women who drank less than one soft drink during a day. (The women who drank more soda also gained more weight over the same period.) Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism suggested that fructose, a sweetener found naturally in fruit juice and typically used in concentrated amounts in soft drinks, may induce a hormonal response in the body that promotes weight gain. drinks, and canned iced tea appear to ag gressively erode teeth enamel in labora tory testsand it didnt matter whether they were diet drinks or regular ones, ac cording to a study published in General Dentistry. soda itself, drinking a lot of soda is likely to leave you with little appetite for veg etables, protein and other food that your body needs.

The capture of Paul G. Rogers, 56. who listed no permanent address, took place following an investigation of a burglary August 24 at an apartment on South Ocean Boulevard. The report said officers met with the resident who had just returned from vaca tion. The victim told officers that when she returned home, she discovered numerous items from were stolen from her apartment and subsequently sold at a local antique shop. The victim and the antique shop employee were able to determine a friend of hers, identified as Paul Rogers, had sold her belong ings. The victim told officers she gave Rogers, whom she met about six weeks ago, a key to her apartment, in case of an emergency. Detectives confirmed with the antique store employee that Rogers was the person who sold him the victims belongings. On August 29, detectives spoke with Rogers, who was in the Palm Beach County Jail on unrelated charges. The police report said Rogers admitted to entering the victims home while she was out of town. He also said he took and sold her belongings. The report says detectives also linked Rogers to a burglary to a Mobil gas station that occurred on July 18. At about 2 a.m., officers found several windows of the gas sta tion, located at 1 East Camino Real, smashed out. The scene was processed and several latent prints were recovered. One print was later identified as belonging to Paul Rogers. Detectives charged Rogers with one count of burglary for the Mobil gas station and burglary, grand theft, and dealing stolen property for the crime on South Ocean Boulevard, said police.Boca Police Arrest Suspect for Multiple Burglaries Boca Raton Municipal Meetings and Activities, Sept. 10-14PBSO Seeking Information on Man Found Dead in WPB CanalThe Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office is seeking the publics assistance in its search for information on a man found deceased in a West Palm Beach canal.

Angel Vasquez-Martinez CARLO BARBIERIBy Carlo Barbieri The Invisible Community Finds RecognitionUntil a short time ago, Brazilians, as individual residents and as members of a community in the area of Palm Beach County, were practically non-existent in the public eye. We knew there were more Brazilians living in Deerfield Beach and Pompano Beach, but they existed in rela tive silence while melding their cultural mores with those of the United States. In general, when we talk with other people about Brazilians living in the community, they would comment that they might know a Brazilian person who worked in domestic services or in manual trades. Its amazing that a population of some 300,000 people living in South Florida has gone so unnoticed for so long. Now, with Brazils noticeable presence in the world market and its global appeal, more people are paying attention to the Brazilians who have long been U.S. residents. Several large companies in Florida are Brazilian. The following are a few examples: In the building trade, Odebrecht Construction is surely one of the largest firms involved in public works projects, which create thousands of jobs. It is a vibrant and visible presence in the ring connecting Palmetto Park Road, I-95 and Palm Beach International Airport with Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Another company from Brazil, Gerdau, is one of the largest steelmakers in the U.S. In actuality, Brazil-based companies conduct about 50 percent of their activities in the United States. In the world of high-tech aircraft, Brazilian company Embraer has two bases in Florida, one in Fort Lauderdale and the other in Melbourne. It is noteworthy that some 40 percent of Americans who take regional flights do so aboard aircraft manufactured by this company. In Jacksonville, depending on the government response, the company will create more than 3,000 jobs for the military base in that city. If we move to the food sector, we know that more than 50 percent of the orange juice produced in Florida comes through Brazilian companies. Either the fruit is imported from Brazil or Brazilianbased companies with facilities in the U.S determine how many oranges are needed for processing to meet consumer need. In the area of defense materiel, Taurus, a Brazilian manufacturer of handguns and automatic weapons, is also based in Florida. It is worth noting that in addition to large companies, more than 15,000 small and medium enterprises owned or run by Brazilians in Florida generate nearly 100,000 jobs. Also, a seemingly endless number of entities bring together Brazilians who live in Florida. The newly established Brazil Club, now with hundreds of members, is dedicated to promoting the relationship between entrepreneurs and professionals, both Americans and Brazilians, to foster their businesses. The club also provides a program of courses encouraging professional development that should reach more than 2,000 people in a year. Rotary Club International has a unique organization in West Boca Raton a chapter for Brazilians where Portuguese is the predominant language spoken during meetings. It offers dozens of activities to support the community and has won several awards, including the Rotary International honor for its performance. The Toastmasters Club, which provides training for people who want or need to speak in public, has a chapter in Boca which offers the only course in Portuguese in America. The Deerfield Beach Chamber of Commerce has a permanent seat for a representative of the Brazilian business community. At a recent meeting, the mayor of Deerfield was presented with the impressive figure that 42 percent of firms in that city do business with the Brazilian community. The West Boca Chamber of Commerce also encourages Brazilians to participate in that groups activities. The Florida Chamber of Commerce this year created the Florida Partnership Brazil to better assist in business development among countries. A group known as Vamos Falar Portugues provides Portuguese language instruction for non-Brazilians as well as children of Brazilian families who are not fluent in Brazils mother tongue such as the children of one Brazilian and one non-Brazilian parent. This organization is expected to serve more than 200 young people. There is also a Womens Club dedicated to socialization skills which has achieved great success in Palm Beach and Broward counties. In all, more than 150 groups, from pastors, Catholic priests to a lunchtime club and other entities, provide assistance to Brazilians living in South Florida. This journal you are reading now, either in print or on line, the Boca Raton Tribune, is in itself an example of the presence of the Brazilian community in Florida. The newspaper belongs to a Brazilian, as do its sister community newspapers in Delray Beach and Coral Springs, all part of Heizer Corporation. Gradually, our business community, intellectual and political groups will enmesh themselves in the opportunities for a Brazilian presence in this region and take them to an even higher level.

23 Edition 113 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com September 6, 2012 through September 12 2012www.bocaratontribune.com BOCA RATON The Boca Raton Bridge Hotel has new owners. AWH Partners, LLC -a joint venture of Winston Harton Holdings, LLC and August Group Ventures, LLC -in partnership with The Lane Organization, LLC announced the acquisition and planned reinvention of the waterfront boutique hotel noted for its location on the Intracoastal Waterway, panoramic water views from every guest room, and offering the only on-the-water public restaurant dining in Boca Raton. The transaction price was not disclosed. AWH Principal Russ Flicker said the Bridge Hotel will remain one of Bocas most notable, continuing to operate as a traditional hotel, yet repositioned and transformed to be more relevant and exciting to meet the desires and needs of todays discerning vaca tioners as well as social and business guests. The redevelopment plan includes entirely new hospitality and dining concepts, expanded waterfront amenities as well as a new dock flanking the propertys entire Lake Boca perimeter so that diners and hotel guests will soon have the option to arrive by boat. Extensive renovations of guestrooms, restaurants and public spaces will begin in spring 2013, he said. We are very excited to add the Bridge Hotel to our collection of repositioned luxury hotel properties, noted Flicker, who along with many of the principals and senior management of the joint venture and partnership has a long history of successful hotel and residential development in South Florida, and in Boca Raton specifically. Our past experience in Boca Raton was extremely positive; we are passionate about the market and its assets, and very much look forward to our seasoned team of designers and consultants completely transforming the hotel into a premier South Florida experience with its own newly positioned distinc tive signature in the destination. AWH Principal Chad Cooley reported that Lane Hospitality (unrelated to The Lane Organization) has been awarded the hotel management contract to guide the reinvention of The Bridge Hotel to a 4-Star position leveraging the firms seasoned expertise and deep experience in renovating, repositioning and operating first-class independent hotels and resorts. For the Bridge Hotel transformation, Lane Hospitality brings more than 30 suc cessful years experience managing hotels and resorts, including both unique independents and leading brands such as Hilton, Marriott, InterContinental Hotels Group and others. Lane Hospitality President and CEO Bill DeForrest is a member of the InterContinental Hotel Owners Association Board of Directors and Lane Hospitalitys entire executive team is involved with brand and statewide hotel associations. The Bridge Hotel property complements our operational and repositioning experience with independent hotels and resorts, noted DeForrest. Working with the ownership team we will ensure a successful repositioning that will benefit the greater Boca Raton community and local tourism industry as well as deliver a profitable return to its ownership. We challenge our hotels to strive for excellence and rely on our leadership team of professionals to ensure an impeccable guest experience at each property we manage. The seasoned team of AGV and WHH formed AWH Partners to pursue hospitality investments requiring capital infusions and/ or repositioning. Our partnerships mandate is to identify and acquire outstanding assets in key loca tions that require operational and physical repositioning to achieve their highest and best use, added Flicker. For us, acquiring the Bridge was ideal. Not only is the property an established community icon in an enviable locale with a longtime history serving as the locals favorite guesthouse for visiting friends, family, and colleagues, it affords our partnership the opportunity to return to South Florida to expand our presence and add yet another hotel repositioning success story to our burgeoning portfolio.By Palm Beach State College Small Business Development Center BOCA RATON -It may come as a surprise to some people, but the federal government does NOT provide grants for starting and expanding a business. Government grants are funded by your tax dollars and therefore require very stringent compliance and reporting measures to ensure the money is well spent. As you can imagine, grants are not given away indiscriminately. Grants from the federal government are only available to non-commercial organizations, such as non-profits and educational institutions in areas such as medicine, education, scientific research and technology development. The federal government also provides grants to state and local governments to assist them with economic development. Some business grants are available through state and local programs, nonprofit organizations and other groups. For example, some states provide grants for expanding child care centers; creating energy efficient technology; and developing marketing campaigns for tourism. These grants are not necessarily free money, and usually require the recipient to match funds or combine the grant with other forms of financing such as a loan. The amount of the grant money available varies with each business and each grantor.

24 Edition 113 September 6, 2012 through September 12 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By Gerald J. Sherman WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?Small Business & The Marketing TriangleWhen advertising and public rela tions work together in the marketing effort, each area serving a specific purpose, a positive effect is the result. Advertising is vital in order to get the word out and we know that advertising cannot be totally successful without a strong public relations component. However, to deliver the complete message to the target market, the third side of the Marketing Triangle, promotion, must be addressed. In todays fast-moving competitive marketplace, funding should be available for all three areas. Spending a disproportionate amount of time and money on only one of these marketing tools will not produce the ultimate results. It takes a marketing triangle, a combination of these three marketing tools, advertising, public relations and promotions to get the necessary message across and see positive results. It is important to put each part of the triangle in proper prospective to understand its role in the marketing triangle and to allocate funding according to your product/service. Advertising Advertisements, whether on the Internet, print, broadcast, and other media, should deliver a message that prompts and encourages the customer to buy a specific product/service. Ads can be roughly divided into two categories: the image advertisement, and the call to action advertisement. The image campaign places ads which create brand recognition. Essentially what these ads do is inform the customer of the existence of the brand and what it stands for. Image ads are typically vague in their nature. Their aim is primarily to make the brand name known and evoke some sort of a connection with it. For example, if Ralph Lauren places an ad with a male model wearing a high-end suit standing outside a Wall Street firms headquarters, the viewer sees this brand as suitable for high-caliber executives. This type of ad is usually placed by the manufacturer and high fashion design firms. On the other end of the spectrum, the call to action advertising campaign has a message which tells the audience what we want them to do. Buy our brand! Do it today! and Log on to our Website! are all calls to action. They lead the audience to a specific ac tion which is a step in the direction of a sale.

27 Edition 113 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com September 6, 2012 through September 12 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Secrets Of Overcoming WorryDo you tend to expect the worst? Do you panic when you get a letter with the government tax service address imprint ed on the envelope, or when you hear rumors about possible layoffs at work? Do you find yourself worrying even when there is nothing to worry about con vinced something bad is about to happen that you will need to worry about? The word worry comes from an old English word meaning, to choke or strangle. Of course, thats exactly what worry does to your productivity and happiness. Worry is nothing but a selfdefeating waste of time. In his famous Sermon on the Mount in the Bibles New Testament, as recounted in Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus presented four reasons for not worrying and also provided two secrets of overcoming it: WORRY IS UNREASONABALE. To worry about something you CAN NOT change is useless. To worry about something you CAN change is stupid! And every time you review a worry in your mind it gets bigger and more burdensome. Worry amplifies problems out of proportion. Dont worry about the clothes you need. Life is more than what you wear (Matthew 6:25). WORRY IS UNNATURAL. You were not born a worrier. It is a learned response to life. In fact, you have to prac tice to become good at it. Fortunately, worry can be unlearned. The only species in Gods creation that worries is human beings. We do not believe God will take care of us. Birds dont worry but God takes care of them. Dont you realize youre more valuable to God than mere birds? (Matthew 6:26). WORRY IS UNHELPFUL. It does not work. It cannot change the past. It cannot control the future. It only makes you miserable today. Worrying about a problem never solves the problem. Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? (Matthew 6:27). WORRY IS UNNECESSARY. God has promised to take care of you if you will trust him with the details of your life. As a child, if you asked your father for lunch money, you never worried about where it would come from. That was his problem. Let God be God in your life! God will take care of you, just have faith (Matthew 6:32). HOW CAN WE FREE OURSELVES FROM THE WORRY HABIT? First, trust God with every area of your life. Part of our problem in wor rying is the realization that there are so many factors in life that we cannot con trol. Worrying might seem like we are doing something, but in fact it is wasted mental and emotional energy. Trusting God, who is in control, frees us of this burden. Your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well what you need and he will provide it if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to (Matthew 6:32-33). Second, live just one day at a time. So often we spend time agonizing over what could happen tomorrow or next week, while the challenges of today are still looming over us. Focus on the what, not the what if. Do not worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34). Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick War ren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, The Purpose-Drive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life. It has been named one of the 100 Christian books that changed the 20th Century. He also has written The Purpose of Christmas.FAITHBy Rick Warren DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Michael H.

Deaths DoorAs wife Bonnie and I came away from the front door of a local steak house where we had dinner with our friends Kathy and Joe on August 15th my iPhone called me to attention. I noticed then that I had missed two earlier calls from my daughter Robin as I picked up her third call. Its Matt, she said, in a breaking voice, referring to my son, her brother, Hes in the ICU, he might not make it, you better come. Matt the 42-year-old, married with two darling girls had mysteriously collapsed in his car while in a shopping center parking lot at 10:30 a.m., after making a small credit card purchase, only to be found five hours later coma tose, with the car and air conditioner running. No planes to Atlanta were available until 6:45 in the morning of the 16th and, of course, I was on it. My daughter, Matt and their mother have lived in Atlanta where they moved after my break up with their mother years ago. As I turned the corner to Matts room I was greeted by daughter and daughter-in-law, Angie, with a group hug and anguished tears. Little had changed since I had talked to my daughter the night before. I entered his room where his mother greeted me with a look and a sigh that needed no explanation. We had long since put our grievances aside for the sake of the children and ourselves. Matt was comatose, on a ventila tor, attached to typical and unique ma chines, which kept his pulse rate, blood pressure, breath rate, and monitored his IV solutions, all of which I had seen before. Uniquely, he was being slowly frozen from the neck down in an attempt to force warm oxygenated blood to his brain in hopes of saving him. Over the next few days tests were administered and good and bad were revealed by the team of physicians charged with saving Matthews life. Matts brain stem was alive, which made his recovery possible, but, Matt had been with no oxygen for up to ten minutes. Any longer and he would have died before he reached the hospital. A doctor agreed that it was amazing that he had been in his car for hours, but only lacked oxygen for less than ten minutes before he was found and given oxygen by the paramedics. The freezing process was later reversed, returning temperature to normal after several tedious and frightening hours. Throughout the time we talked to him, held his hand and beseeched him to squeeze our hand if he had heard us. After hours I thought I felt a slight response but was afraid it was my wish, not his command. Sister caught a real squeeze an hour later. A nurse suggested he wiggle his toes and he did. I had called my friend Howie, a neurologist in Plantation and reported the events. He suggested that there was hope because of the responses. Matt was stable and kept alive by the ventilator. His doctors predicted a long haul if there was to be a recovery with physical, mental and emotional therapy, but first he had to somehow silently teach himself to breathe on his own. Things stayed the sameuntil the following Tuesday. I had returned to Boca Raton with a promise to fly back on a moments notice. First my daughter texted me with the news that Matt had been off the vent for an hour, and later on Tuesday that he had been taken off entirely, and hopefully forever. And, when asked his name, responded Matt. He identified his two daughters and a cousin he had not seen for years. By the time that I returned to the Hospital on the 24th Matt was able to communicate with a head shake or nod. His wife, mother or sister had taken turns staying in his room with him overnight. I suggested that they take the night off and let me sub. We watch some NASCR from Bristol together. I helped him with some breathing exercises, and we both dozed on and off between his treatments. By Sunday Matt was reading the headlines in the local paper and seemed saddened by the passing of Neil Armstrong. Two weeks out and Matt is no longer in ICU and is on his feet with the help of the hospitals physical therapists. Matt has a long way to go, but I think that none of it would have been possible without the help of his wife, mother, sister and the professional staff of doctors, nurses, and technicians at Gwinnett Medical Center. Oh yes, and the prayers of his family, many friends and many others of all religions and races who are connected with our family. God bless you all.Columnists GREAT OFFER!!!!!

29 Edition 113 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com September 6, 2012 through September 12 2012www.bocaratontribune.com SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsGraham Wilbert Shines in Second Half as FAU Wins Opener Versus Wagner CollegeIt wasnt pretty, but the FAU Owls won their first game under the Carl Pelini regime by defeating Wagner College 7-3 on Friday. The start of the game was not something that anyone had imagined as Wagner took a 3-0 lead on a 30-yard field goal by David Lopez with 11:13 left in the second quarter and starting quarterback Stephen Curtis struggled. There was no sense of panic at halftime. We did make some mistakes but we will learn from this experience. A teams greatest leap should come between the first and second games, said head coach Carl Pelini. At halftime, Pelini made a quarterback change and put in senior Graham Wilbert and the offense seemed to start clicking. We were able to move the ball down the field in the second half, said Wilbert. We just wanted to win. Wilbert sparked the offense by connecting 10 of 13 passes for 126 yards and the game-winning touchdown to senior wide receiver Byron Hankerson with 11:36 minutes left to play in the game. It felt good to be back out there, said Hankerson. I was excited to be back out there with my teammates When Pelini called his number in the locker room at halftime, Wilbert wasnt surprised FAU won its first season-opening game since 2010 when they defeated UAB 33-32. The team will open Sun Belt Conference ac tion on Saturday, against Middle Tennessee State University in Murfressboro, Tenn. As to what the win means to the program, It means we are 1-0, said Willbert. Which is a lot better than what we were last season. Photos by Bob Markey II www.MarkeySportsPhoto.com Shorthanded Strikers Unable To Upend Rival RowdiesFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Sept. 1, 2012) The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (9W-6T-9L) lost 3-0 to the Tampa Bay Rowdies (11W-6T-7L) in front of 5,659 fans at Lockhart Stadium on Saturday night. Fort Lauderdale were put shorthanded in the 19thminute when midfielder Michael Tetteh was shown a red card for violent conduct after he retaliated against Tampa Bays Andres Arango for a foul. The Strikers nearly took leads in the first and second half before the Rowdies broke through in the 78th minute. The Strikers are now in fifth place after a win by Carolina in their match. Fort Lauderdale faces Puerto Rico next Saturday at Lockhart Stadium on Sept. 8. You cant expect a team to play 70 minutes down a man and hang on like that, but Im proud of our guys effort, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. After the red card was issued to Tetteh, the Strikers continued to press and had several opportunities to score. Coming out of half time, forward Andy Herron was subbed on for Abe Thompson and produced a scoring chance almost immediately. Herron was put through on goal behind the Rowdies defense and put the ball in the net. Unfortunately Herron was whistled for being offside and the Strikers were forced to regroup. The match stayed tight until the 78th minute when Raphael Cox scored for Tampa Bay off a Luke Mulholland corner kick. Takuya Yamada flicked a header into the small area and Cox redirected the ball past Matt Glaeser. Pressing for the tie, the Strikers were left vulnerable on the counter attack and were victimized twice. Once by Frankie Sanfilippo in the 82nd minute and again in second half stoppage time by Carl Cort. It was a must win game for us to get into second place, said Mark Anderson. We lost our shape a little bit in the sec ond half and they scored off a corner. Its disappointing and I think the ref spoiled it a little bit, but now we have to look forward to Puerto Rico. The Strikers will finish off their three game home stand against the Puerto Rico Islanders on Saturday, Sept. 8, at 7:30p.m. at Lockhart Stadium. NASL Announce New Split-Season Format for 2013By: Pedro Heizer With the NASL growing in 2013 with the addition of the historic New York Cosmos and then again in 2014 with the Ottawa Fury, it seems right for the NASL to do something different with the way their schedule is played. With six of the eight teams currently making the playoffs, it almost makes the NASL regular season mean nothing. But, earlier today the NASL announced some exciting news regarding the 2013 season. Beginning in 2013, the regular season will feature two separate and distinct round-robin competitions with the winners of each competition meeting in a single game on the weekend following the conclusion of the second competition. The winner of that match will claim the historic Soccer Bowl trophy as the NASL champions. Our Scheduling Sub-Committee ar rived at this recommendation after an exhaustive review of a number of alternatives, said NASL Commissioner David Downs, and the new format takes into consideration a variety of factors including fan and player comfort in our many warm-weather cities. But the bottom line, Downs added, is that we believe this new competitive format will bring more excitement and meaning to each of our regular season matches for all of our teams throughout the year. Each individual championship will consist of a full round-robin schedule in which each NASL team plays every other NASL team once at home and once on the road. Other than the tie-breaking procedure to determine the opponent for the spring championship winner in the Soccer Bowl, there will be no carryover of points from the spring to the fall com petition. The spring championship starts in late March or early April and will con clude on Thursday, July 4. Teams will then have about one month before the start of the second championship and each team is free during that period to prepare for that com petition as they see fit, kind of like an off-season of sorts. The break will occur during the international transfer window that is open throughout much of Europe, Latin America and North America. The fall championship will start July or early August and run through November 2. After the conclusion of the fall cham pionship, the winner of the spring cham pionship will host the winner of the fall championship for the NASL Soccer Bowl. If the winner of the spring champi onship is the same as the fall championship, the team with the second-best record in the full years game will play the champion. I for one am very excited for this new format. Ive been reading on some of the reaction out there, theres some positive, but theres also some very negative. While talking to some people, they voiced two big concerns: 1) the lack of a two-leg championship final and 2) allowing the spring champion to host the Soccer Bowl instead of the team with the best overall record over the entire year. They are understandable concerns but they are simple to answer. Holding a one-game final would be an easier and, more practical package for potential television partners as opposed to trying to sell them on two games a week apart. Furthermore, there is a huge problem with prolonged playoffs in the lower divisions of U.S. soccer due to travel costs. Travels that must be arranged and purchased on short notice are usually tickets that are at their highest. Cutting the postseason to a single game elimi nates those short-term costs for all but one team (more on this blow). In regards to the winner of the spring tournament hosting the Soccer Bowl thats simple, knowing the site of the championship final months in advance allows media partners, league officials, referees and even fans to plan for that location. Lets say the winner of the Fall Championship clinches their title several weeks before the end of that they can begin to arrange travel plans then as opposed to potentially having to wait until the week before the final to determine the team with the best overall record and, thus, the host site. Personally, I think David Downs and the rest of the NASL have done a good job in trying to make the NASL an excit ing league to watch. Like with every announcement, no one is ever fully satisfied but include me in the group of people that agrees to this new format.
