It really brings back the memories of heading to the Jersey Shore, in addition to the anticipation of me taking some time off, as well as looking forward to my son's high school graduation. I had the opportunity, last month, to meet the Vice President of the United States when he came to South Florida to give the commencement speech for Cypress Bay High School. Regardless of politics, it's an honor to meet the person who holds the office and to have them speak at ones graduation. Driving in the motorcade with not one car on I-95 was a first for me as well. This month, we celebrate the two hundred and thirty sixth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Being born in Philadelphia, where the signing took place and the birth of the United States of America commenced, I take particular pride in the occasion. I am also proud and grateful to the many men and women who served and sacrificed limb, life and fortune in pursuit of our freedom. I believe we should all take some measure of reverence or appreciation for those who have gone before to afford us the opportunity of "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." I do this by raising the flag, a tradition my mother passed on to me years ago. She would always put up the little flags in the front yard. Today, and every day, I have the flag raised on my house. I think it is the least I can to for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. So, when you are enjoying the parades and festivities with family and friends, I also encourage you, regardless of national origin or political affiliation, to do the same this Fourth of July � Raise the American Flag in gratitude for your Freedom. These are some challenging times we live in and you have to go no farther than the news station, or now Facebook, to know we are interconnected globally. We need to take notice of the words of two of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, John Hancock & Ben Franklin. John Hancock supposedly said that Congress, having signed the Declaration, must now "all hang together" and Benjamin Franklin replied, "Yes, we must indeed all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately. By no means am I suggesting anyone abandon their national pride for where one was born, nor to compromise one's principles. But, if we are to survive and grow as a nation, and a world, we must collaborate on solutions which preserve the ideals which formed this great nation. Happy 4th of July and Have a Great Summer!

HIGH "SIP STYLE" WITH SITINMYSEATS VIP TICKETS & TRAVEL about 30 miles north to Calistoga. There are two main routes through the valley. Most visitors take Highway 29, which is a straight shot from Napa to Calistoga, hitting all the big names such as Opus One and Francis Ford Coppola's Rubicon Estate. But this route can get painfully crowded in summer. So, the travel concierge professionals at SitInMySeats generally suggest that their clients, whether on a self-guided tour or with a private driver, take the "other route." This route is the Silverado Trail, which avoids the towns, is quieter, and has breathtaking views. Wineries along this long and winding road include Stags' Leap, (the winery that made the red that beat the French at the famous Paris tasting of 1976) and Darioush, notable for its striking architecture that incorporates references to Persepolis, the capital of ancient Persia. Because the valley is only a few miles wide, you can easily get back to Highway 29 by using the Oakville, Yountville or Rutherford crossroads as you make your way. Recently, Laura designed a vacation to Napa Valley for a couple to celebrate their wedding anniversary. The clients wanted to stay, shop, sip and eat in luxury. They wanted to be pampered and catered to, yet longed for some adventure. The final vacation design included two nights in San Francisco, four nights in Napa, luxury accommodations, a private driver to take them to exclusive tastings, picnic lunches in the middle of the vineyards, a hot air balloon ride with W napa valley hile California has several wine-growing regions all over the state, most people who think of the California "wine country" think of Napa Valley. The rolling hills just north and east of San Francisco are home to over 300 wineries and vineyards, such as the well-known and respected Beringer, Raymond, Sterling, Robert Mondavi and Rutherford Hill. At SitInMySeats VIP Tickets & Travel, it seems as though a luxury Napa Valley vacation is always being planned. The destination has remained at the top of the list for luxury travelers and clients who love to discover the wine and culinary treasures of regions worldwide. Why is it so wildly popular? Laura Hildenbrandt of SitInMySeats, says: "Napa Valley is blessed with lavish scenery, luscious wines, amazing restaurants and luxury accommodations at every turn. It is the kind of place you could spend days exploring, yet it's compact enough that even if you have only an afternoon to break away from San Francisco, you can still get a taste of the wine country and feel like you've had an encounter with the finer things in life!" Just an hour's drive northeast of San Francisco, this beautiful region starts south of Napa and stretches champagne and a scenic bike tour throughout the beautiful valley. Their experience was so amazing and every detail so carefully attended to, the couple returned and immediately enlisted SitInMySeats VIP Tickets & Travel to design another visit within a few months! Inspired by the many clients who make Napa Valley their own, with the help of the professionals at SitInMySeats, Lisa Crawford, owner of the company, has decided to spend her wedding anniversary exploring the region this summer. "Seeing how amazing and extremely personalized a trip to Napa Valley can be has helped me make the decision to take my own vacation there! On my agenda - a lot of spa, sipping, shopping, amazing food and scenery I won't ever forget!" So, whether you want a break from the big city for a day or want to be fully immersed in the culture of Wine Country California, SitInMySeats VIP Tickets & Travel will design an experience just for you.

As I step into my new role as Headmaster of North Broward Preparatory School, I am prepared for the challenges ahead because of the invaluable lessons learned from talented educational leaders who have mentored me. My first teaching job was as a Drop Out Prevention teacher in a fourth grade classroom. I was hired by an Assistant Principal who took a chance on a young college graduate. I hadn't met the Principal and when I did there seemed to be some surprise on her face, which I attributed to my youth. She offered her support and demonstrated it without judgment or criticism. She took the time to learn my strengths and guide my professional growth. Being a true mentor is one of the most important roles an educational leader can play. Its impact on the total school is immeasurable. I became an Assistant Principal shortly before my 30th birthday and was fortunate to have the opportunity to hone my skills in curriculum development and leadership under the direction of two dynamic, but very different educators. One was an innovator who embraced technology and was knee deep in whatever the students and faculty were learning. She understood the power of professional development and made certain that administration sat alongside teachers in all staff learning experiences. Establishing a culture where professional development is highly ELISE ECOFF valued develops in teachers the mindset to constantly evaluate, reflect, and strengthen their skills. This develops a dynamic school community. "Establishing a culture where professional development is highly valued develops in teachers the mindset to constantly evaluate, reflect, and strengthen their skills. This develops a dynamic school community." My second mentor was a problem solver and deep thinker. She was a voracious reader and shared cutting edge books and articles with members of the faculty. She gave 100% and expected that from her faculty and administration. She challenged me to develop my skills, expand my knowledge of curriculum and guided me toward a greater leadership role. Setting the highest standard of excellence for your school begins with yourself. From her example I understood what Aristotle meant when he said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." In my tenure at North Broward, I have had the good fortune of working with many talented educators. Shortly after I arrived, David Hicks became the Headmaster. David is an educator with vision. Working with him I helped to develop the Meritas Academic Plan, (MAP), which became the roadmap on a journey to define excellence and the cornerstone for every Meritas school's foundation. David's visionary leadership continues to have a profound impact on our school and me. After searching for a specific approach to develop critical thinking skills in students, I read about Project Zero, an institute at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. David encouraged me to follow my vision and send teachers to the program. After three years of targeted professional development and collaboration, we have created a culture of thinking and learning at NBPS that is truly unique. Developing a vision, articulating that vision and making it a reality is what distinguishes great leaders from good managers. I am proud and excited to be the next Headmaster of North Broward Preparatory School and am eager to take my turn mentoring and guiding all in my care. *North Broward Preparatory School is a proud member of the Meritas family of schools.

A few uncles took him under their wings and helped mentor him to be a versatile athlete excelling in track, basketball and football. Growing up, Chris was a diehard Cleveland Browns fan. There was no ESPN available so he followed all the local teams. Bernie Kosar and Eric Metcalf were his heroes. He vividly remembers the 1980 Kardiac Kids, when the Cleveland Browns had several games decided in the final moments. Chambers spent his Sundays watching those games and then going outside to play football and recreate the downs in the snow. He loved watching the Cleveland Cavaliers when Mark Price played and still has the Cavs in his heart while supporting his local team, the Miami Heat. "I like to watch the athletes. I watch every HEAT game but I'm more interested in watching the athleticism of a player," says Chambers. Chris was fixated on sports and knowing that only a few make it from college to professional status, he left little time for anything other than hard work and training. Recruited by University of Wisconsin-Madison as a wide receiver, playing in the Big Ten Conference, Chris experienced culture shock immediately. "The at Wisconsin." At one e point, Chambers was playing wide receiver in football and point guard in basketball until the scheduling became a nightmare to continue both sports. NFL scouts began looking at Chambers as a ears freshmen. A few years later he was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft. In October 2007, he was acquired by the San Diego Chargers, and in November 2009, he played for the Kansas City Chiefs. During the 2010 season, Chambers played hurt. After visits with multiple physicians, he learned of his career ending injury. CHRIS CHAM BERS "Competitive athletes want to challenge the limits of their performance and take their games to the next level, whether the goal is to make the varsity or be the number one selection in the professional draft." Remember an earlier mention about Chris' versatility? In 2007, he created a music label, launched King Ape Entertainment and was CEO through 2010. He produced one album - Death Of A Man Rebirth Of A King (Pryslezz); two singles and music videos, several live band concerts and several mix tapes. "I loved the event planning part of the music business but what a money pit!" Now closing in on retirement from the NFL and loving his life again in South Florida, Chris is launching "The Chamber" in Davie, Florida. "Competitive athletes want to challenge the limits of their performance and take their games to the next level, whether the goal is to make the varsity or be the number one selection in the professional draft," says Chambers. "By providing a customized training program that transition was such a shock for me because of the diversity and where I came from. I learned so much. How to speak to people from all walks of life and how to be a champion, work hard and excel. I loved my experience improves athletic ability, skills, and performance on and off the field, The Chamber is the one stop for individuals who want to maximize their potential and results." The Chamber provides sports training, fitness and therapy programs at an elite level. This is not a typical gym or training center. There are a variety of different modalities to support motivated athletes to become elite. The Chamber features state-of-theart equipment, certified instructors, current and former pro athletes, sports therapist, and a medical rehab referral program. Chris's energy is endless. He's multifaceted. He chuckles as he shares that he played trumpet in junior high and would love to play the piano. Traveling is his thing. He learned Portuguese before visiting Brazil. But you will want to meet him when you read what he describes as a great day. "When you start a business and are approved for financing our equipment...it's a great day! When kids meet me and still know my name. When a fan says you were the best hands that the Miami Dolphins ever had, that's a great day!" You might bump into Chris Chambers out and about in your own travels. He's just a regular guy who shops at Publix and the mall. He heads home after work to a beautiful wife, a two month old daughter and a five year old son. You would never know he was a Pro Bowl selection in 2005, had 531 receptions for 7,557 yards and 58 touchdowns during a career that lasted from 2001-2010.

The Board was searching for an exceptional individual to run the largest private funder of health and human services in Broward County. This is an organization whose services touch one in six people in the community. It's a big job, but this past April, United Way of Broward County announced its new leader, Kathleen Cannon, who began running the organization in May. Cannon spent the past 10 years as the COO of Broward House, an HIV and AIDS community service organization, and has been in executive leadership for more than 15 years.

There's the dictator kind and the electricity kind, to name just two, but also the ability-to-make-somethingspecial-happen kind. That's the one Lisa Bauer prefers. The life-changing kind. The power that well-meaning people have to be selfless and focus on making someone else's dream come true, maybe someone they don't even know. The power that "To really share the comes from a gift impact a wish has for delivered to the children and families physically sick while celebrating and emotionally spent at the time all the people who it is needed most. help make the magic The power of a happen." wish. It is what drives Bauer, a senior vice president for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, in her role as board chair of Davie-based Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. A desire for every eligible child with a life-threatening medical condition to be able to make a wish � to be something, to meet someone, to go somewhere or to have something � and have it really happen. Unfortunately, wishes aren't cheap (an average cost of $5,000), which led Bauer to become the driving force behind "Make-A-Wish Month," the recently concluded fundraising effort that raised more than $150,000, 0 enough to grant 30 children's wishes, during May. "The month was an opportunity for us to reach audiences with our message in different r ways," said Bauer of the board of directors-led initiatives that were kicked off in a visible way when Fort Lauderdale's 110 Tower was lit Make-A-Wish blue. "To really share the impact a wish has for children and families while celebrating all the people who help make the magic happen." The original ideas that made up Make-A-Wish month � private tastings, bring your dog to work day, and lots of creative fundraising in between � are ones that Bauer hopes will continue long after her time as board chair concludes. "We have an opportunity to gain momentum with an annual push that precedes the time of year (summer) when we grant the most wishes," said Bauer, a Hallandale Beach resident who joined the Make-A-Wish board in 2006. "World Wish Day" on April 29 is a global celebration of the granting of the first wish in 1980 that we follow by continuing the wish-granting party, Southern Florida style." While she realizes there is room to improve what was accomplished in the initial campaign, Bauer is proud of the effort, plus all that she and Royal Caribbean have traditionally done to make a difference. That includes hosting families for oncein-a-lifetime cruises or raising money on-board so that other children can experience their "one true wish." "I love to hear that kids are more open to and tolerant of their medical treatments after having their wish granted or how memories of the experience bond families in a special way. It's powerful stuff." Make-A-Wish Southern Florida grants a wish to a child with a lifethreatening medical condition every 16 hours and has fulfilled more than 8,000 local wishes in its territory, which includes 13 Florida counties and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

T BY ALAIN POUPART he BankAtlantic Center was home to some exciting hockey this past season as the Florida Panthers captured the first division title in franchise history. The arena in Sunrise also played host to performances by some of the biggest names in the music business, and there will be many more concerts before the start of the next NHL season. But Sunrise Sports & Entertainment is looking to give hockey and music fans another reason to come to the BankAtlantic Center -- Club RED. Spread out over more than 12,000 square feet, Club RED is a high-end lounge featuring superior cuisine, a full-service bar, chic seating and other perks such as VIP parking, a private entrance and private restrooms. "We've created Club RED to be an ultra-premium, in-arena lounge unlike any other club in the country or even the world," said SSE President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Yormark. "Club RED represents the ultimate in high-end live entertainment experience -- perfect for a night out with friends or family, and absolutely ideal for entertaining clients or creating incredible and unique business opportunities." Construction on Club RED began in the spring and is scheduled for a late summer/early fall opening. Club RED will feature HD flat-screen televisions, Wi-Fi, customized name-plated seating, private concierges and modern d�cor. The color scheme mimics the Panthers' 2011-12 promotional campaign slogan "We See Red." Club RED offers memberships for concerts or hockey only for $12,500 annually, or an all-encompassing membership for $22,500. That's good for the 150 to 200 events that take place at the BankAtlantic Center every year. Club RED patrons will be sitting stage right for concerts and other events, and they'll have the opportunity to be only 15 rows from the ice for Panthers games. Club RED includes about 700 sideline seats on the southeast side of the lower bowl. Chad Estis, president of Legends Sales and Marketing, says the great seats enhance the experience. "I've been involved over the years in a variety of different premium products that have all-inclusive food and that are exclusive in nature as far as the percentage of seats by comparison to the rest of the building, and the thing I like about this the most is it incorporates the very best seats in the house," said Estis, whose company has been hired to sell Club RED memberships. "You combine that with the look and feel of the build-out and the variety of entertainment that runs LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | JULY 2012 35 BEYOND THE GAME � Perks for Club Red members that extend beyond the lounge. � Invitation to Panthers postgame media area. � Invitation to annual Club RED Member Special Events for Member & Guest. � Invitation to exclusive Club RED Member VIP Day at Panthers Training Camp for Member & Guest. � Option to use Club RED lounge space for corporate meetings/ functions on non-event days, based upon availability (catering and maintenance fees not included). � Discount on other nonevent space rental at BankAtlantic Center, based upon availability. through the arena, I think you have a winner. It's kind of taking the best of the best that's been done before in premium (seating), with the key being the location of those seats." Estis, a former college basketball player at Ohio University, and Yormark worked together with the Tampa Bay Lightning in the late 1990s. SSE has sold about 50 percent of the memberships available, most of them covering all events. Ultimately, the goal is for Club RED to dazzle patrons to the point where the action on the ice or on stage barely matters, but the timing of the opening nonetheless is pretty good considering the success of the Panthers this season. "There's no doubt about it. When the product on the field, floor, ice, whatever we're selling, is on an upward swing, it makes our job easier," Estis said. "There's a lot of amenities to go along with this club that I think can overcome the cycle of team performance that occurs in our business. That's a big part of what premium is --the experience should always be a real positive no matter what's happening on the field of play. But the fact that there's more interest in the Panthers and they seem be going in the right direction is a huge positive as we're out selling in that market." Yormark said the inspiration for Club RED was simple. "The atmosphere inside Club RED is inspired by the world's best restaurants, five-star hotels and sexiest clubs and lounges." To handle the food end of the club, SSE hired Chef Lucio Iaconetti, who became well-known for his cuisine at the Texas Rangers' Diamond Club. His food will be showcased at Club RED, and that includes his signature dish -- or "Chef's Choice" -- of sea scallops & risotto. Other items Iaconetti has made specifically for Club RED include Florida rock shrimp shooter with avocado gazpacho, pistachio-crusted black grouper, and churrasco-style filet mignon. Club RED was designed by 360 Architecture. SSE spent about $5.5 million to develop Club RED, which is similar to sideline clubs at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center and Newark's Prudential Center. The plan, though, is to make Club RED stand out. "Combined with the best view of world-class sports and entertainment and the ultimate in customer service," Yormark said, "there is simply no other place like it in the industry." LP 36 JULY 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | JULY 2012 37 THE LOCAL FISH FINDER BY BRIAN BIENKOWSKI BIENKOWSKI O If you're thinking about taking a fishing trip with the family, or if you have friends coming to visit and want to share the experience of fishing the beautiful waters off south Florida, then you've come to the right place for information. After all, the ocean can be daunting. It's a vast expanse of water where fish such as dolphin (mahimahi), kingfish, wahoo, sailfish, amberjacks and other critters roam. It's difficult trying to guess where to begin and what to look for � depth of water, type of bait to use, currents, wind direction, the proper equipment for live baiting or trolling and the list goes on. Luckily Tom Greene from Custom Rod and Reel is available to assist. He has garnered over 50 years of experience in the fishing business and freely gives advice to anyone who inquires about the teeming waters off the coast. "10% of the fishermen catch 90% of the fish," remarked Tom. "That's TOM GREENE because they work hard at their craft and understand what to look for when trying to locate fish. They've gained local knowledge." In the waters off south Florida during the summer, dolphin and kingfish can be caught on live bait or trolling ballyhoo. These fish are usually found between four and eight miles offshore. Tom suggests looking for weed lines, floating debris such as boards and to keep an eye out for diving birds. The fish tend to crowd these areas because smaller bait fish take cover in the weeds and actually congregate under floating material. "Fish where the bait is at," said Tom. "If you see birds diving then that means baitfish are in the water, which generally means game fish will be there too, feeding on the bait." Another great option is to fish the bottom of the ocean, especially where the wrecks are located. These wrecks are manmade; mostly fishing vessels sunk to attract different species of fish. In Pompano Beach, for example, an area called Tin Can Alley attracts a multitude of fish such as amberjacks, snapper and kingfish. This area is situated in depths of 100 to 300 feet of water. "You can pick up a fishing chart or GPS numbers online, which makes 38 JULY 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM LY 2012 LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM 0 G it easy for anyone to fish the wrecks located in our area," said Tom. "But bottom fishing differs from trolling or live lining bait fish. Many fishermen use jigs; they simply drop them to the bottom and then jig them m up attracting fish to leave the e cover of the wreck and feed." CHARTERS, DRIFT BOATS AND PIERS If you don't have your own boat there are other alternatives available in this fish friendly area. You can hire a charter boat captain to fish for just about any species biting this summer. They can be a bit expensive for either a half or full day, but you can also hire split charters. This means you'll be sharing the boat and expenses with a couple of other people. Charters provide the equipment, bait and expertise to catch fish. Drift boats are a bit different. On these boats you'll be with numerous other fishermen and they usually "drift" over the wrecks or other bottom structure to catch fish. The cost is less than a charter but it can get crowded. You can find a variety of fishing charters and drift boats at Hillsboro Inlet, Dania Beach and i in Deerfield a The Cove. at They are fa family friendly an a fun way and to spend time w loved ones with or friends. A n o t h e r option for locals and visitors alike are the piers. They are easily accessible in Dania, Ft. Lauderdale and Pompano. They are open to the public and some have bait available. You should bring your o w n equipment. It's an enjoyable way to experience fishing and Florida's sunny weather. LOCAL KNOWLEDGE If you want to hook into a dolphin and see its azure, green and yellow colors erupt, hear your reel scream from a diving kingfish, battle an amberjack that's as ornery as a rhino, and make memories with friends and family, talk to a local whose fished these waters and doesn't mind sharing some knowledge. Just call Custom Rod and Reel in Lighthouse Point and ask for Tom.

EXPECT ALL OF THIS WHEN YOU DINE AT D'ANGELO PIZZA. Imagine hearing Chef Giovanni and his Italian song resonating from the kitchen, an enchanting smile along with dark, warm eyes and a passion for putting his love of cooking into every dish. Envision a friendly social atmosphere, a wine bar, tapas, gourmet pizza that is out of this world and homemade gelato all in one very casual but stylish place. Expect all of this when you dine at D'Angelo Pizza. Begin with the focaccia gonfiata. This Italian bread is covered with prosciutto and sprinkled with parmesan cheese accompanied by fresh arugula. Wonderfully light and delicious. The antipasto is rich and flavorful: a large plate and samplings of marinated eggplant from Calabria, brussel sprouts with pancetta, white anchovies, seafood salad, white cannellini beans, kalamata olives and chunks of ParmigianoReggiano cheese. Scrumptious is the only word that describes this starter. There are many tapas, salads and soups to choose from on the menu. This style of dining allows you to enjoy a variety of dishes. The veal and pecorino cheese meatballs tomato braised are unbelievably light, sweet and smooth in texture. And, the turkey and chicken meatballs in roasted pepper thyme sauce are a close second. If you fancy sausage dishes, you'll want to experience the roasted sweet Italian sausage over escarole and beans. The hint of spice and garlic compliments the sweet sausage and the casing is just a bit crispy on the outside. The chef prepares one pasta dish as a special each night on the menu. Penne with sausage, red onions, topped with fresh arugula, parmesan cheese and cherry tomatoes is fantastic. Tasting the arugula with the penne brings the dish to another level. Whatever the pasta special is for the evening, you won't go wrong. Chef Giovanni and his team love to experiment with different seasonings.

The rich berry flavors enhance the rosemary infused pork. I mentioned the gourmet pizza earlier. Order the Porcina Pizza. You will think you died and arrived in foodie heaven. This is an absolute "must have" off the menu. The enticing aroma fills the air before the pizza is set on the table. The porcini mushrooms, plum tomatoes, truffle oil and basil melt in your mouth and the thin, crispy crust tempts you to pick up the next slice. It's phenomenal! There will be no leftovers, I promise. Dining at D'Angelo Pizza is not complete without ordering several scoops of homemade gelato, the Italian word for ice cream. Gelato is made with milk, cream, various sugars and flavorings such as fresh fruit and nut purees. The flavors available included: stracciatella which is like chocolate chip, mixed berry, pistachio, hazelnut and lemon. Each flavor was wonderful but the serving won't leave you feeling too full. The stracciatella is heavenly! D'Angelo Pizza offers a large variety of wines for a casual restaurant. They have a full bar and an outside patio for dining. They are located at 4215 N.

Over the past two decades, the royals seemingly were beset by scandal and sorrow. Prince Charles was chided by his countrymen and media worldwide for divorcing Princess Diana and courting � and then marrying � Camilla Parker Bowles. Then, Princess Diana was killed in an automobile accident; the aftermath � investigations, accusations and litigation � became the stuff of tabloids for years to come. Brits questioned the cost of maintaining the royal family, a tally that ran in the hundreds of millions of dollars. The once-proud royal family, sadly, was fodder for Fleet Street tabloids. Fast forward to 2012 to see how much has changed. Queen Elizabeth II in June celebrated the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne. Thousands of adoring Brits and international spectators lined the streets of London. Millions from around the globe tuned to watch the spectacle live. All, it seems, was forgiven, if not forgotten. Pride had been restored. It's a compelling commentary about the resilience of timeless brands � and the willingness of people to cherish and embrace their traditions or things they love. The British monarchy certainly is not alone. A memorable example is Coca-Cola, which released New Coke in 1985 to immediate scorn and ridicule. Eventually, the company shelved the new and brought back the original formula. Exxon suffered serious harm to its brand with the 1989 oil spill off Alaska. Several American car brands were derided for poorly designed and performing vehicles, which resulted in sagging business and even bankruptcy. Today, each of those brands has returned to prominence. Even the royals are riding a wave of popularity among their people. This hasn't come by accident. Prince Charles' and the late Princess Diana's sons have done the crown proud. Both William and Harry serve in the military; in fact, military duties forced both to miss early Jubilee ceremonies. William's marriage in 2011 married Kate Middleton wowed audiences and followers worldwide. Even today, the Queen, Camilla and Kate seem warm and familylike when appearing in public. And when Prince Philip was admitted to the hospital this week, the show and fanfare understandably went on. One commentator noted how the Queen was smiling � all the while aware that her husband was ailing. "She puts on a brave face" said one commentator. Whether you're royalty, an executive or run a business in public view, the lesson is clear. Crises may come. Whether they go � and make way for image recovery � is up to the individual. Behave poorly, and people may turn against you, your company or your brand. Behave well, and exercise resilience and patience, and your persona, brand or corporate identity can be restored.

No one treats more patients with Sculptra� Aesthetic! Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera masterfully administers Sculptra� Aesthetic to recreate the masculine jaw that the years have diminished or adds a more masculine jaw line that genetics simply did not create. For women, he can resculpt the softness and roundness of the jaw line and build it back up to a plump, round, youthful volume and tightening the loose skin in this area. Like a master-artist sculpts, Dr. Aguilera will recreate the younger looking masculine or feminine jaw and youthful face that the years have diminished. Celebrities and our patients alike have discovered the wonderfully unique benefits of Sculptra! There is no need to fly to NYC or Beverly Hills! Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera is the #1 top injector for Sculptra� Aesthetic in the entire United States! He is also a Top Platinum Level Master Injector of Botox and fillers for Allergan! Sculptra, when done well, can easily erase decades off your apparent age and you will look as young as you feel. Whether you are 35 or 85 years old, the results can be dramatic providing youthful, symmetric, invigorated look. Sculptra� Aesthetic is different from the other dermal fillers in that it is not a gel or other substance that is injected to erase a specific wrinkle or fold. Sculptra� Aesthetic works entirely by stimulating the body to create its own new collagen. When done correctly, this creates a more gradual and very natural increase in facial volume, which is why it is so popular among celebrities. People will comment on how great and young you look but never realize that you have had anything done because the increase in improvement although dramatic is gradual and natural. Each day that passes will result in additional collagen synthesis. You are apparently "growing younger." The new collagen synthesis will cause the skin to reflect more light which gives skin an overall more youthful and rested appearance without anyone knowing you had any treatment at all! The effect is realized at about week 8 after injection with improvements continuing up to 6 months. This is a very long lasting filler of up to 2 years. Another huge benefit is that this product fights against demineralization that so many aging women begin to have around the mouth that cause the chin to become receded and pointy. On men, the jaw reduces a little due to bone loss and the cheek bones flatten. The skin is then unable to accommodate for the volume loss and drapes near the jaw. In addition, fat accumulates in this area causing distortion of the lower face and jaw line. `Wrinkles and 25 years erased in one, 1st in Florida, New, DEEP SmartSKIN CO2 Micro-ablative Laser Treatment!'
