BriefsThe Boca Raton Tribune Obituaries Steve Jobs, who died on October 5 at the age of 56, was the visionary co-founder, and later chief executive, of Apple, makers of the Macintosh computer, the iMac, the iPod, iPad, and iPhone, and the man behind the astonishing success of the computer animation firm Pixar, makers of Toy Story and Finding Nemo; in consequence he did more to determine what films we watch, how we listen to music, and how we work and play than any other person on the planet. Jobs never designed a computer in his life, but it was because of him that Apple products, even when they do largely what other products do, are perceived to be different and infinitely more cool. The Macintosh introduced the world to the computer mouse; the iPod became famous for its click wheel, and the iPhone for its "user-interface" a sophisticated touch-screen that responds to the flick of a finger. Jobs emphasized the difference between Macs and the PCs that ran Microsoft software, manag ing to preserve Apple's image as a plucky, creative, insurgent against the bland Microsoft behemoth even as Apple itself became the biggest company on the planet. "I wish Bill Gates well," he once claimed. "I only wish that at some time in his life he had dropped acid or spent time at an ashram." It was a marketing trick that Jobs worked on consumers too, convinc ing them that purchasing Co-Founder of Apple Inc, Dies at Age 56 Apple products somehow conferred membership of an exclusive and visionary club, even when it was transparently obvious that the company's devices were utterly ubiquitous. This corporate reputation for seer-like trailblazing lay completely with Jobs. "I skate to where the puck is going to be," he explained, using an ice hockey metaphor, "not where it has been." The Jobs story humble birth, rise and fall, miraculous comeback proved that the American Dream is alive and well. The following events are being sponsored by FAUs Dorothy F.

Their most recent donation, $1 million to the Florence Fuller Child Development Centers (FFCDC), is the largest personal gift in the history of the organization, said Peggy Henry, chair man of the Board of Directors for FFCDC. The Perpers have been passionate donors in the advancement of FFCDC and it is an honor to dedi cate our west campus student activity center in their name, said Henry. They have truly made our community a much better place in which to live and work. The Perpers donation will serve as a lead gift to kick off a capital campaign to build a student activity center for FFCDCs west campus in Boca Raton. Doug Paton, CEO added: I want to express our sincere gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Perper for this very generous gift. Their support will help us make significant enhancements to the west campus. Harold Perper pointed out that "Mary Ann and I would like to express our sincere admiration for the role the organization plays in educating and nurturing young children. It is our hope that this gift will act as a catalyst in attracting additional fund ing for the project as it is so important that today's children have every opportunity for a bright future." Since the mid-1990s, the Perpers have been ded icated to FFCDC, most notably in 2003, when the Perpers were instrumen tal in the establishment of the first ever onsite health clinic to serve children from disadvantaged families in the state of Florida. Located on six acres west of 441 in Boca Ra ton, FFCDCs West Campus includes buildings for infant and toddler care, preschool classrooms, a multipurpose room and administration offices. Paton noted: "Our Board plans for this new building to be a first-class facility that will add a necessary ingredient in further developing our after school and summer camp programs. Celebrating 40 years, FFCDCs mission is to make a positive difference Perpers donate $1 million to Florence Fuller CDC; largest gift in agencys historyMary Ann and Harold Perperin the lives of young children from economically challenged families in the community.

BOCA RATON Identical twins Cari Kutno of Lake Worth and Dani Mofshin of Boca Raton, diagnosed with the BRCA breast and ovarian cancer gene, represent the importance of Think Pink Rocks education mission. Cari and Dani consider themselves to be previvors and will share their story with 4,000 people at the fourth annual Think Pink Rocks concert Saturday, November 5th at the Mizner Park Amphitheatre. Think Pink Rocks, (www.thinkpinkrocks. com) a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer and awareness of the BRCA gene for breast and ovarian cancer, has reached many individuals with life-saving information. The twins, 39, both have a harmful mutation of the BRCA 2 gene. As a preventative measure, they both had bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction in 2010 at Boca Raton Regional Hospital and a complete hysterec tomy in 2011 as prophylactic surgery to prevent hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. The twins mother, Susan Shapiro of Boca Ra ton, was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Their mother made several classic mistakes before her diagnoses. She missed two mammograms and then, when she started to have symptoms, thought she had pulled a muscle in her armpit and waited a month before going to the doctor. In retrospect, an indicator that Susan might have the BRCA 2 gene was that several of her family members died of pancreatic cancer. A leading website, cancer.org, states that harmful BRCA 2 mutations may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer, stomach, gall bladder, bile duct cancer and mela noma. Susan was tested for the BRCA gene and found out she was positive, and then encouraged her twin daughters to be tested as well. After a double mastectomy with reconstruc tion on January 7, 2011, Susan is now cancer free. Also according to cancer.org, a womans lifetime risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer at an early age (before menopause) is greatly increased if she inherits a harmful mutation in BRCA 1 or BRCA 2. The twins both had their double mastectomy on the same day, November 30th, 2010 at Boca Raton Regional Hospital and shared the same hospital room. On July 6, 2011 Cari and Dani underwent a complete hysterectomy Their husbands, Andrew Kutno and Howard Mofshin, were extremely supportive of each of their decisions to have a bilateral mastec tomy with reconstruction and complete hysterec tomy. The twins said they are particularly apprecia tive of their doctors': Dr. Marla Dudak (breast surgeon) Dr. David Bogue (reconstruction surgeon) and Suzanne Bostic (CNA), and Dr. Frank Cirisano (gynocolgical oncologist). This is where breast cancer prevention starts, Cari Kutno said. In 2004, at age 36, Stephanie Robin, a Boca Twin breast cancer previvors with BRCA gene will share story at Think Pink Rocks Concert Identical twins Cari Kutno of Lake Worth and Dani Mofshin of Boca Raton with their mom, Susan ShapiroRaton mother of two small children, was diag nosed with stage II breast cancer. She tested positive for the Breast Cancer Gene (BRCA) and underwent a double mastectomy with reconstruction, a total hysterectomy and months of chemotherapy. The cancer returned to her lungs and is stage IV; she is receiving monthly treatment at Memorial SloanKettering and the tumors have decreased in size by 90 percent. She and her friends Elizabeth Weprin, Kathy Fleishman and Amy Seidman established Think Pink Rocks. Working with Steve Rifkind, chairman of SRC Records/ Universal, and producer Kelley Lee, this is the fourth year they have organized the Think Pink Rocks concert to advocate for early detection of breast cancer, raise awareness of the BRCA gene for breast and ovarian cancer, and raise funds for breast cancer research charities.

Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497 good taste and available space. used as letters to the editor.Letter Guidelines By Dale King Letters to the EditorThe Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS/LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FLThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher C.E.OC.O.O. C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor In my 63 years on this planet, I have tried to deal with tough situations by being jovial. Ive found that humor usually gets me through the hardest of times. But laughter is often a cheat. I found that out just a few days ago when I was lying in a bed at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis. The left side of my body cried with one of the severest of pains; one I knew well from experience -a kidney stone. Ive had them before. But this one burned its mark on me. The stone moved, effectively blocking my left kidney, and not a darn thing that I or my doctors had done could move it from a treacherous spot. The pain, the medica tion and a long, lonely night in a hospital bed had brought me to this spot Monday morning. I lay there in a hospital Johnny looking up at three doctors my own physician and two urology specialists. It was pretty damn tense. I was hoping to get out of the hospital today, I said vainly. No chance, said one of the experts as he leaned over me. Then he said; Mr. King, your kidneys are shutting down. I felt a hot dart move down my spine, a response to something that affected me deeply. The medical experts agreed. This stone wasnt going anywhere. And without surgery, it would damage the organ. Worse, the tests found two larger kidney stones on the right side which had not yet moved. Surgery was needed. Immediate surgery. Within hours, my urologist was outside the door of my hospital room, garbed to lead an operation. The world became surrealistic. Suddenly, I felt I was watching a TV medical drama. If I thought that I was really involved, I think I might have freaked and run out of hospital. Those who visited me during my hospital stay remarked on my calm appearance. Believe me, I wasnt calm. A million thoughts were going through my head, none of them about my current situation. All trying to pull my head to a more positive and leisure place. My doctors voice broke the silence. As soon as we get a transporter, were off, he said in a gentle tone that helped calm me. And when I got into the transport bed, I was whisked off to the operating room, with a profusion of lights and ceiling tiles streaming in front of my eyes. It was all I could see. Tiles, lights, tiles, lights, tiles, lights. And then the big sign in red lettering: Surgical Area, Do Not Enter. The team packed me up for the necessary operation. Even in my surreal state of mind, I could see the professionalism of people poking at computer screens, thumbing through notebooks. All were dressed in blue uniforms. On Star Trek, I thought, blue is the color of medical staff outfits. I rattled off a list of answers to questions: allergies, past medical history, family health troubles, had I eaten or drunk anything that day. The allergist was concerned that I had consumed a small container of apple juice. Medication was added to my IV to compensate. Soon. I was in the midst of an operating room. I was packed in, and a mask was put over my face like that mask a nurse put over my face at Sturdy Hospital when I had my tonsils out at age 9. That was the last time I was admitted to the hospital. Suddenly, silence. Then, the world opened slowly to an office area. My anesthetized brain was coming back to consciousness. Then, a long day of recovery. Come Tuesday morning. The intense pain was going. One by one, my medical team came by and agreed it was time for me to go home. The right decision was made. The right operation was carried out. It was time to move on, they all said. But never to forget that health must always be protected and that life must always be the center of ones attention.A hospital stay teaches us how incredibly fragile life is Hi Dale Thank you so much for including my engagement announcement in the paper! Thanks again! Britt Monroe Dear Pr. Sandy, Thank you for the great article God and Religion My Way. It was truly an inspirational column to read and I love to read all your columns. They are very interesting. Janet Adams

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FLBy Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. received 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. By Douglas Heizer Whoever is acquainted with the United States Postal Service knows of the excessive amount of junk mail which daily floods most American households. With the advent of electronic mail, the same is also experienced by its subscribers. The advantage of the latter is that with one click on your keyboard you can delete an unwanted message without needing to open it. Some e-mail providers even take care of that for you, ahead of time, by diverting suspicious messages into the category known as spam, thus keeping unwanted e-mails from your inbox. On the personal level, you can also be proactive in not permitting unsolicited, negative comments to affect you, or harsh responses which may be given to your inquiries, besides other unedifying messages you need not store in your inner being. That could contaminate the stream flowing from your own heart toward others. In your daily interac tions with people, both those you know, as well as many who simply cross your path once, provide a whole assortment of messages aimed at you. Some are written, others are vocally presented, besides many more which can be just as eloquent, albeit unspoken: an evil stare, an unpleasant gesture, or any other non-verbal type of communication. Your best posture towards all these is to delete them from your memory as quickly as they come, long before they take hold of you and adversely affect you by poisoning the emotional reservoir which should supply all you need for the real challenges of any of your days. Ive met several people who, unnecessarily, daily endure a rather miserable existence because they hold on too tightly to grudges, resentments, and negative intimations which they allowed to lodge in their life. It may also relate to items they chose to interpret in a negative way even if that was not the original intent of the message. Whichever form it may take, the consequenc es are caustic for any life, often leading to illness, if not to death itself! Something quite sad is what happens when people delete the positive messages sent to be embraced and stored in the human heart and mind, to provide the directives for varied, unexpected situations encountered in daily life. At the same time, healthy pronouncements intended for us to receive and retain, sometimes cannot occupy human minds on account of too much corrosive negativity already lodged in that space. Such items need to be deleted completelyand never allowed to return! In moments of chaos or times of tranquility, you can utilize the right stuff to keep you thriving while you reflect on what is good, while flushing out whatever can be corrosive and injurious to your own life!Messages to Delete Times go on, and sometime what we learn can hurt usIts fall again and the season is really just beginning. In a few months, The Boca Raton Tribune will celebrate its second anniversary. Hard to believe and, let me tell you, its hard to make it happen! I will take advantage of the fact that my dear friend and our manag ing editor Dale King is at home recovering from surgery and I will write more than he allows me to do on a weekly basis! We are very proud of the newspaper we deliver to you every week, actually, every day. We cant forget our online edition! We are the only real Boca Raton newspaper. By that I mean we are the only newspaper that covers community news from east to west of Boca Ra ton, and that is owned and operated by local people. During my time as the publisher, Ive learned a lot of new things and met a lot of new people. This makes me very happy because we are focused on being your local newspaper, not just another newspaper that prints just to get ads and make money. Do we have competition? Yes and no. Nobody does what we do for our community. We are working to establish a long term relationship with the readers and with the business owners that support us. We want to be not only your closest neighbor but closest friend. Our sales team is not here to take your money and go away, they are here to find a way to support your business the same way you support ours with ads. We are happy to report your business events, we are happy to let people know about your new improvement or about your new product that just arrived. Your ad is not only a block of print that you paid for, for us, having your ad in the pa per means more. It means that you want to see your local newspaper alive and we appreciate that. We are happy to see our paid mail subscription growing every week, we are thankful for all of you that support us that way. But I need to be quite honest. Not all things I learned these past two years made me happy. Some hurt me deeply. I learned that a lot of people, non-profit orga nizations and business owners look at the paper as only a way to promote themselves. They dont care about us; they dont care about how much it costs to keep the paper alive. They dont even know the difference between us and some other newspapers out there. They keep sending us press releases to make their business well known, and when we ask about ads, they say: We dont place ads at the newspapers. Some say, We dont believe in local newspapers. This is really awkward because if they dont believe in newspapers, why do they send press releases to us? If you like our newspaper and if you want us to keep doing what we are doing, I want to give you a challenge. Do you know how much a business card ad at the only real Boca Raton newspaper costs? $35. Do you think $35 per week is too much to support your local paper? If you think its worth it, let businesses know you would like to see them support our city newspa per and keep it alive. I know a lot of you either owns a business or is in charge of marketing in your business or organization. I challenge you to give one of our advertisers a call and ask them if what I said about partnership and support is true or false. We will be here when someone from another state, another city comes and tries to put you out of business, to take your customers away. We will stand with you, we will support you. Nobody else will. Nobody can be proud to be local like we are. We need your support!

Anna Rua donates Beanie Babies and other childrens toy collections to the Boca Raton Childrens Museum. Anna has been collecting Beanie Babies since they first came out 18 years ago and has more than 100 Babies. A Beanie Baby is a stuffed animal made by Ty, Inc. in late 1993. Each toy is handmade and has an inner lining that is stuffed with plastic pellets (or beans) rather than conventional stuffing, giving Beanie Babies a flexible feel. Nine Beanie Babies were released the first year, but there are now more than 500 different Babies in circulation. Beanie Babies began to emerge as popular collectibles in 1995 and the company continues to manufac ture the toys today.

Photo by Frank Correggio Abrams hails addition of jobs in Palm Beach CountyBy County Commissioner Steven L. Abrams District 4Its no secret that during the past two years, Floridas and Palm Beach Countys economies have been among the hardest hit in the nation with unemployment rates ranging from one to three percent higher than the national average. However, the latest sta tistics show Palm Beach Countys unemployment rate for August 2011 was 11.0 percent down 0.2 percentage points from the July 2011 rate of 11.2 percent and a 1.3 percentage point decrease from the August 2010 rate of 12.3 percent. I am pleased to report that I recently received some other good news from Palm Beach County Workforce Alliance the county added 8,100 jobs over the last 12 months in categories that are key components of our economy, and job openings have increased 12.6 percent compared to this same time last year. As of August this year, the county experienced an over-the-year employment growth in numerous industries including leisure and hospitality (+5,700 jobs), education and health services (+4,100 jobs), professional and business services (+1,700 jobs), other services (+400 jobs), transportation/warehousing (+300 jobs), and financial activities (+100 jobs) There also were 14,978 advertised job openings in Palm Beach County in August 2011, an increase of 1,671 jobs (+12.6 percent) from August 2010. Since bottoming out in January 2009, there has been an increase in demand by approximately 5,301 job openings. Palm Beach County Workforce Alliance is a nonprofit organization chartered by the state that provides specialized free services to both employers and jobseekers at three career centers located in West Palm Beach, Boca Ra ton and Belle Glade. They have been instrumental in placing thousands of jobseekers from entry level to executive positions. In their most recent program year (July 2010 to June 2011), Workforce Alliance placed 12,771 area candidates in jobs a record number and a 19 percent increase compared to the previous year. Workforce Alliance has an established track record of high performance among the 24 regional workforce boards in Florida, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranks Florida no. 1 in the nation for its workforce and training programs in a recent annual evaluation. They remain committed to educating and training our local workforce, which is essential to the development of our local economy. Some examples of the services provided by Workforce Alliance include job search workshops and training, career consulting, employers recruiting on-site, use of computers, phones and fax, and assistance for persons with disabilities and priority service for U.S. military veterans. Complete information about these services is available at www. pbcalliance.com. At the same time, the countys Economic Development Office (EDO) is working diligently in procuring new business to relocate to the area while providing other incentives for existing business to expand and grow by providing low-interest funding opportunities and/or tax incentives. For example, a new or expanding business may apply for an economic exemption for improvements to real property and/or tangible personal property not already on the countys tax roll. There is also the states Enterprise Zone Program that offers eight different tax incentives for new and existing businesses. The EDO will also provide assistance with local business owners and entrepreneurs in obtaining low interest rate loans through local, state and federal agencies. One example is Industrial Revenue Bonds (IRB), a program designed to finance business and industrial expansions for companies with strong credit. The bonds are issued by the county with principal, interest and other costs of the bonds paid solely by the beneficiary company. IRBs finance up to 100 percent of the project costs, with loans up to $10 million available if the financing is tax exempt. If you know someone who is looking for a job and/or a business owner(s) looking to expand or relocate, please pass this information along. Please contact me if I can be of assistance or if you have any comments and/or suggestions.

County GOP Chairman Sid Dinerstein has named Cathy Brandenburg to serve as the Republican Partys executive director. Cath has been a longterm member of the Republican Party family and brings years of political experience to the table, said Dinerstein, most notably as Jeff Atwaters campaign manager during the hard fought Senate campaign in 2002. Brandenberg entered politics when she was elected a Republican Executive Committee member in 1996 for the county GOP from her district. She was re-elected without opposition in 2000. Also in 1996, she was assigned as the North County area leader for the Election Task Force, the Republican Partys grassroots organization. She was a founding member of the Northern Palm Beach Republican Club in 1997 and has served on its board. She is also a two-term board member of the Republican Party of Palm Beach County. Brandenberg replaces Palm Beach County Republican Party Executive Director Greg Langowski who has been hired by U.S Senator Marco Rubios office to be a regional direc tor in South Florida. Although Im sad to lose Greg, I know this is a great opportunity for him, Senator Rubio and Palm Beach County, said Dinerstein; Moving forward, Im confident that Cathys experience in political campaigning, strategy and management will play a key role in a smooth transition for the county party as we face a dynamic and exciting election cycle.

By Marc Kent The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL It helped that I had seats right down front at Broward Center, where Rain continues through Oct. 16. There is a reason Rain has been performing live nearly more than twice the length of the Beatles performance run, and that reason is attention to detail. There are plenty; perhaps too many Beatles, tribute bands around, but many of them are slipshod, second-rate imitations. The guys in Rain have really studied their subjects and their music. The ringleader in this group is Joey Curatolo, who plays the role of Paul McCartney. Apart from the fact Curatolo plays right-handed, he is a dead ringer for the affable cute Beatle. Curatolo has been playing this role since the original Broadway debut in 1998, and he shows no signs of disenchantment. In fact all four of the Bea tles are members of the original Broadway cast. Steve Landes does not look so much like John Lennon, but his voice is a dead ringer for the most acerbic, quotable Beatle. Joe Bithorn is a bit huskier than the late George Harrison, but he resembles the lead guitarist and his riffs are echo perfect. Drummer Ringo Starr is probably the easiest Beatles to play, because he doesnt say too much. Mostly he smiles and makes peace signs, but Ralph Castellis drumbeat is rock-steady, like Ringos. Add to this authentic costumes from early Bea tles Hamburg, mid-Beatles Abbey Road, late mid-Bea tles Sgt. Pepper and final Beatles scruffy and authentic vintage guitars and Vox amps and you have a visual treat to go with the aural pleasure of guys who sound and act exactly like the Beatles. These guys dont waste time either, packing more than two-dozen tunes into a show enhanced by vintage commercials, cartoons and news clips. I never got to see the Beatles live in concert. I have seen McCartney and Starr in separate concerts several times. As enjoyable as their concerts are, there is no substitute for the Beatles as a group. Rain is about as close as you are going to get at this point in time. Tickets are $25.25$65.25. Call 954-4620222 or go to www.bro wardcenter.org Rain is one of those rare shows that is even more enjoyable on a second viewing Rain in the early Beatles mode.Seating 40 plus at in side and outside table, this 2 month old Mexican food style emporium is open from 8AM thru 9PM, Monday to Sunday.

We take our bodies on these rollercoaster diets, changing with each new trend and promise, leaving us in a state of chemical imbalance and forcing our digestion and metabolism to compensate when our usual nutritional sourc es are removed. When there is balance, our systems work efficiently to process the foods we eat. With balance and efficiency comes healthy weight maintenance. Carbohydrates are not the villains they are being made out to be! They are essential for digestion and metabolism; they are the best source of energy for all bodily functions, especially the brain and central nervous system. Carbohydrates help regulate protein and fat me-The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL tabolism, as fats require carbohydrates for their breakdown within the liver. Carbohydrates contain the same number of calories per gram as protein (approximately 4 calories per gram) and less than one half the calories of fat (approximately 9 calories per gram). Unrefined, natural carbohydrate foods like grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables are the only food category not linked to any leading killer diseases. Research has shown that diets low in pure sugar -one of the very real culprits -and high in complex carbohydrates have been shown to help many disorders. Avoid the carbohydrates that are bad carbs: the pure sugars and starches, the carbohydrate foods lacking in essential vitamins, minerals and fibersthe empty calories." These carbs, found in starchy and sweet foods, when eaten in excess can crowd out essential nutrients in the diet. Concentrated sweets, such as cookies, cakes and candies should not exceed 10% of the daily total calories, yet it is estimated that today we consume as much as 25% of our calories in the form of sugar. The National Research Council does not state a specific requirement in the diet, however most authorities agree that 55 to 60% of total calories should be from carbohydrates. A minimum of 100 grams a day is absolutely essential, with 300 grams being ideal for most people. A person's metabolism, activity levels, size and weight all determine the amount of carbohydrates the body needs. Complete removal of carbohydrates from a diet may produce ketoses; these are toxic compounds that can cause a breakdown of essential body protein, brain damage, depression, apathy, and loss of energy. When protein is burned for energy, as in low carb diets, the kidneys can be overworked trying to quickly rid the body of toxins. It is necessary to consume large amounts of water to stabilize this condition. In balanced diets, fats are burned for energy from storage not proteins benefiting the entire body as these stores of fat produce energy more efficiently.Continued on page 29

It seems that every week another restaura teur (or chain) opens a new fabulous restaurant or pub only to close within a year or two (sometimes shorter). Everyone raves about the food and the openings are a grand affair but then all too often the flame burns out too soon. You could blame it on the recession (which is a real issue) but there are also a few things that can make or break a new restaurants success. It usually comes down to giving people a good perception of value. And when I say value, it doesnt just mean price its about food quality, portion size, ambience and service. After someone pays the check, they ask themselves, Did I get my moneys worth? If the answer is yes, then they are more likely to come back, said Burt Rapoport, owner of Henrys, Bogarts Bar & Grille and Deck 84. One new restaurant that seems to be on the right track is Philippe by Philippe Chow. This rather elegant hot haute Chinese restaurant has an upbeat interior in black, white and red with a comfy bar and private rooms that make you feel that Vegas thrill. Well known chef, Philippe Chow has perfected the art of Beijing-style cuisine without using MSG and other fillers. And it seems to be working. Their New York location has garnered an endorsement from Zagat 2010 for Best Chinese Food and was named Best of the Best (2007) by New York Eat, Drink and be MerryMagazine for their Peking Duck. The restaurant is also backed by celebrity sports figures and is frequented by heavyweights such as Bill Clinton, Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Rupert Murdoch, Rihanna, Jay Z and Beyonce. Favorite dishes are Chicken Satay, Beijing chicken, Peking Duck, Peking Chicken and Green Prawns. And the best part is that the menu is lower priced than the Miami and New York locations. They have a three-course prefix meal for $29, from 4 to 6 Sunday to Thursday and happy hour every day from 4 to 6 with complementary appetizers, halfprice cocktails and free valet parking. Located at 200 East Palmetto Park (below the spiffy condo) you can find them at www. philippechow.com. On the other side of the culinary and cultural spec trum is a new restaurant in The Shops at Boca Center called The English Tap & Beer Garden. This casual, good vibe haunt is based on Las Vegas Todd English P.U.B. (Public Urban Bar). They serve 25 beers on tap, over 60 bottled beers from around the globe and a menu that ranges from shrimp cocktail to steak salad and everything in between burgers, short ribs, turkey, chicken pot pie and a host of seafood and sandwiches. Their Happy Hour from 4 to 7 daily includes half price draft beer, wine (select liquors) and luscious appetizers at a special price. Check out the menu at www.theenglishtap.com. Owner John Watson is pretty happy about his cool hot spot in Boca Ra ton. We know its the right time to bring an authentic beer garden to South Florida because we have the perfect outdoor/ indoor location. We have delicious beers and full bar with great food in a casual outdoor space. Watson has a point. Ac cording to Dennis Max, owner of Maxs Grille, price has become an issue with it comes to restaurant longevity. Wealthy people have gotten more conservative in their spending; theyre trying not to be extravagant. You have to pay attention to every detail and work hard. You also have to understand where society is at and give it to them, said Max, who is opening a new restaurant in Deerfield Beach called Frank & Dinos and one at the Regency Court in Boca called Assaggio Del Forno. Max continues to tweak his menu (and his wine list) to cater to his fans needs. Its the season to be jolly almost so eat up.

By Carter Helshien Teen LifeThe Boca Raton Tribune As Chinas economy and international influence continue to grow, many are analyzing the similarities and differences between the United States and China. With China having all members of their International Mathematical Olympiad team place gold for ten different years (the second country to have that many all-members place gold is Russia at two) it should be questioned just what it is about the curriculum in schools in China that is making them appear superior to those in the United States. Though recent arguments have been made that the Chinese school system is superior, in reality there are both equal advantages and disadvantages to the Chinese and American school systems. The main difference between students in China and students in the United States is that while students in China may fare better in mathematics, students in the United States are more well-rounded. Specifically, in the United States students generally take the five main courses of English, a foreign language, a social science, a science, and a mathematics course, while students in China take the five core classes of mathematics, chemistry, physics, Chinese, and English. Consequently, Chinese schools are more mathematics and science oriented. Moreover, though social science classes and other classes common in the United States are offered in China, they are rarely taken and are offered simply as electives. Furthermore, schools in China greatly contrast with schools in the United States in the methodology they follow. Though schools in the United States stress unique thought-processes and individualism, schools in China focus more on rote memorization and factmemorizing. Moreover, while test-taking does have high-value in schools in the United States, there is a much greater emphasis on the value of test-taking in schools in China. Students in China are trained from very early-on to be prepared for various tests through extensive test prep in middle school, high school, and college entrance exams. Though some might make the argument that schools in China should be considered superior to schools in the United States, the reality is actually far from what might be expected. The main advantage that schools in the United States provide is the wide range of classes that are offered, starting anywhere from psychology classes to economic classes. Consequently, students in the United States are able to experience a much wider array of interests and maximize their learning experience. US Education vs. Chinese Education: Who Wins?

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL Your challenge as a salesperson begins when your potential client says, No. To the seasoned seller, a No doesnt necessarily mean that the buyer is not willing to buy. Rather, it often means that something about the product/ service, the way it has been presented, or the way it has not been presented, is causing the buyer to hesitate. Even experienced buyers find making decisions a difficult task. If some of the sales elements are ambiguous in the buyers mind, it may be easier to say No and play it safe basically people dont like to make hasty decisions. Sometimes the best way for the buyer to find out if the sellers information is worthy is to challenge the seller, and the No response is often the best way to do it. No may mean many things. Here are some possible translations to the No response during a sales presentation. The client may be telling you: tion. a good enough reason for buying. my problem/s. me the benefit/s. has not addressed the perceived value I am looking for. Lets look into the verbal dynamics involved in the sales presenta tion and explore this issue further. When does No mean No and when does it mean Yes? How can the salesperson tell if the buyer is hinting they need more information or are simply not interested? The salesperson must never get disheartened when they hear the dreaded No; instead he or she must listen carefully to what follows after it. If the client gives you an expla nation for why they do not want to buy, then it typically is safe to assume the buyer is giving the seller a chance to address that issue. Otherwise, why would the buyer even explain his or her decision? For example, suppose the client says the products delivery time is too late. In essence, he or she is telling the salesperson that if the product were delivered faster, he or she would consider buying the product. The client is giving the seller the opportunity to arrange for quicker turnarounds and make the sale. If the client says boldly that they are not interested in the product, or has no need for it, then in most cases, the No likely means a No. This is a clear indication of the buyers polite desire to end the sales presenta tion. Carrying on with more information about the product will in most cases irritate the client and could possibly even sour the entire buyer-seller relationship. In this scenario the salesperson should ask if they can meet at a future time. If the response is still, No then the only thing the salesperson can do is to Go and leave the door open for another day by indicating that he or she appreciated the buyer taking the time leave with a good impression. You never know what other product/service you will be selling in the future you may have to see that buyer again. A polite goodbye is always in order. Although we find that relationshipbased selling has made a strong comeback (it really never left us) it is returning with different ground rules. seller should be on the same page with the same objectives. ship should be predicated on a long-tern timeframe in which both sides respect each other and trust one another. always be voiced in the buyer-seller relationship and the sellers answers must be honest, accurate and not adversarial.Finally, we dont subscribe to using tricky techniques in order to persuade buyers to make decisions. Clients today are more knowledgeable and sophisticated than many of their predecessors; do not expect them to fall for antiquated, phony pressure techniques and do something they are not comfortable doing. Today, the emphasis should be on how they buy, why they buy, what motivates them, and finally can your product satisfy their needs? Although the seller should be cognizant of modern day (21st century) buyer behavior, they should always be prepared to confidently and honestly answer buyer objections. Clients expect to have their objections addressed and resolved before they consider making the buying decision; this will help turn a No into a Yes.Excerpts from the book, The Real World Guide to Selling & Management, Gerald J.

I inherited it from my father. The home is free and clear, no mortgage. We moved into the home five years ago. We have been married for fifteen years. I sell furniture on commission to stores all over Florida, she is a school teacher, and we just make ends meet. We have no savings and no retirement, although I have an account with a broker of a couple of hundred thousand, also from my dads estate. I have been paying for the taxes and insurance on the home from my inheritance money.zz We are getting a divorce. My wife would like to live in the home, with the kids, until our youngest, now thirteen years old, gets out of high school. My lawyer calls that exclusive use and possession. I need a place to live, and can not afford a home nearly as nice, if I have to live elsewhere. Can she kick out of my own home? Would I still have to pay child support? How is that calculated? We have a mediation set in a couple of weeks. What should I do? A: Granting exclusive use and occupancy to a divorced residential parent and the children is not uncommon. It is usually conditioned upon the residential parent remaining unmarried, and lasts until the youngest child is out of support. It is considered a way of providing child support. However, it is not usually allowed where, as here, the home is not jointly owned, and is not marital property. Under those circumstances, it should not be granted unless the court finds that your income is not sufficient to pay your share of the child support and still have enough left over to support yourself, and that, therefore, use of the home is necessary. The child support would be calculated in the usual manner. Your income and your wifes income, net of income taxes would be determined. The required guidelines support is calculated by comparing your total net income to the chart found in the Florida Child Support Guidelines. The support amount provided by the statute is then divided between you proportionately, depending on the percentage of the total income earned by each of you, adjusted for the payment of health insurance for the children. Under these circumstances, however, an additional adjustment would be made in the income calculation. The fair rental value of the home would be added to your wifes income before determining the total support, and your respective percentages. To plan for the upcoming mediation your attorney should prepare sample child support guidelines scenarios, with and with out the granting the possession of exclusive use of the house to your wife. If you want to hold on to possession of the home, you must take the position that you can afford the child support provided by the guidelines calculation. If you want her to posses the home, temporarily, you have to argue that you cannot otherwise provide support for the children. The cost of your alterna tive place to live should be determined and considered in order to figure out what would be economically best for you.Hey, thats my houseIn real fellowship a friendship or relationship in which mutual support is extended people experience mercy. Fellowship is a place of grace, where mistakes are not rubbed in with constant reminders, but rubbed out and forgiven. Fellowship happens when mercy wins over justice. Everyone needs mercy, because we all stumble and fall, and usually require help getting back on track. Because of this, we need to be willing to offer mercy to each other and be equally willing to receive it from one another. You cannot have fellowship, whether in the workplace, a community organization or a family, without forgiveness because bitterness and resentment always destroy fellowship. Sometimes we hurt each other intentionally and sometimes unintentionally; either way, it takes massive amounts of mercy and grace to create and maintain fellowship. The Bible offers this wise admonition: You must make allowance for each others faults and forgive the person who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others (Colossians 3:13). The mercy God shows to us should serve as the motivation for us to show mercy to others, regardless of the circumstanc es. Whenever you find yourself being hurt by someone else, you have a choice to make: Will I use my energy and emotions for retalia tion or for resolution? You cannot do both. Many people are reluctant to show mercy because they fail to understand the difference between trust and forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past. Trust, however, has to do with future behavior. Forgiveness must be immediate, regardless of whether a person asks for it. Trust must be earned and rebuilt over time. Trust requires a track record. If someone hurts you repeatedly, you are commanded by God to forgive them instantly, for your own benefit as well as the other person. Lack of forgiveness can become an emotional cancer, a lingering, lethal source of bitterness. However, you are not expected to immediately trust the person that has hurt you and you are not expected to continue allowing them to hurt you. When people inflict pain in your life, they must prove to have changed over time before they can regain your trust. One of the best places for restoring trust is within the supportive context of a small group that can provide both encouragement and accountability. But while you are giving people time to make positive changes, your first step should be to extend forgiveness, independent of whatever remedial action they choose to take. Consider this insight from the Scriptures: When people sin, you should forgive and comfort them, so they wont give up in despair (2 Corinthians 2:7). 2011, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved.

He spent two years as the school's director of football operations, though there was no foot ball team, and has since been the only coach the program has ever known. Schnellenberger was the driving force behind getting an on-campus sta dium, and made FAU a common name in both the state and the country. When Schnellenberger came to FAU in 1998, one of the first things he proposed was an on-campus stadium. He had made a similar proposal during his tenures at Miami, and Louisville. Schnellenberger understands the importance of an on-campus stadium, from his days with Miami in the late 70s and early 80s. The Hurricanes played at the Orange Bowl and Schnellenberger said one of his first games (a game versus Notre Dame) had to be moved because fans wouldn't travel to the Orange Bowl despite the Irish being one of the most recognizable teams in college football. He said he didn't want FAU to have the same problems. "I've been right in the middle of this thing for all these years and can see the significance of playing their home games on campus," Schnellenberger said. "It was absolutely obvious to us that a sta dium needed to be built on our campus because no college football team wants to be off their own campus. The ones that are off campus certainly wish that they were on campus and that is true of the great teams as well. According to Schnellenberger, a school becomes a recognizable after its football program becomes important in the national eyes. UCLA, FSU, UF, UCF, Auburn, LSU, Alabama, all were small schools at one point. These schools grew once the school invested in a football stadium. Once a football program becomes Pedro Heizer and Howard Schnellenbergerseen in the national media, not only will it be easier for the school to sign recruits, but the school will grow along with the football program. With this football stadium, FAU will now be a major player when it comes to recruitment, and being noticed by bigger conferences." an enthusiastic Schnellenberger in his office explained the importance of a football stadium in a University. Not only is the stadium a huge boost for the College Life at FAU, but it will also be a huge boost for the city of Boca Ra ton. The new 30,000 seat stadium will attract fans from all over Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and other neighboring cities. All these people will come to the heart of Boca Raton and will end up eating at the local restaurants, go to bars, clubs, or any form of entertainment after the games, much like FSU has right now. The city is expecting a boost in the economy thanks to the stadium opening up and that is a great sign for us explained Councilwoman Constance Scott. Seeing his dream of an on-campus stadium realized is one of the highlights of Schnellenberger s career. And in spite of feeling the pull of retirement that is just around the corner (Schnellenberger will retire after the season), Schnellenberger hasn't lost his passion for the game. FAU found the ultimate builder, and the ultimate dreamer; Schnellenberger is the type of guy who is able to look at a pile of junk and see gold. As for what Schnellenberger sees in the future for FAU, I can see them in 15 years being parts of the Big East Conference and competing for a national title or a meaning bowl game.

The win is the first of head coach Jurgen Klinsmann who is now 1-2-1 as the head coach of the National Team and is the 13th victory of the U.S. National Team versus Honduras. Clint Dempsey scored in the 36th minute on a beautiful goal. Dempsey turned on the defender, switched the ball from his right to his left foot and shot the ball just inside the left post of Honduras goalie Donis Escobar. I didnt know if that ball was going to come through, explained Dempsey of the goal after the game. I tried taking it with my right foot, saw that it was going to get blocked, pulled it back and tried to place it with my left foot and couldnt have hit it any better. The goal was Dempseys 23rd goal as a member of the United States National Team. Honduras started the game with some great chances, goalkeeper Tim Howard made six saves but none bigger than the open shot on goal in the 19th minute by Jerry Bengston and then again in the 72nd minute when he blasted a shot from 30 yards out. The conditions werent great, but I thought defensively we were pretty good. They pose some really big problems for us. Theyre strong up front and because they have two target players who can hold the ball up they can get a lot of players into the attack. It was difficult but I thought we did pretty well in terms of controlling them and not giving them too many great chances, explained Howard after the game. This game could have easily been 2-0 when Oguchi Onyewu shot from a rebound was just over the crossbar in the 66th minute. Boca Raton native, Jozy Altidore had over 300 friends and family come watch him play, I had a ton of family come out; it was really special for me. I really enjoyed playing in front of my family and a lot of people who helped me get to the point I am today.United States National Team wins in Miami for the rst time since 2003: National Team now has a 3-10-4 record in South Florida Another player with roots in South Florida is Real Salt Lake midfielder Kyle Beckerman who started his MLS career in Miami with the Miami Fusion, Its always great coming back and playing in Miami.
