Give Your Home Jazz-Age Glamour And Sophistication (NAPSA)—The opulence of Art Deco and period-inspired home furnishings are trending more than ever. Whether it’s the influence of popular TV shows and movies, such as “The Great Gatsby,” or just a longing for the elegant and beautiful, the newest look in many American homes is one that hearkens back to the 1920s. Filmmaker Baz Luhrmann’s take on the classic novel includes an unparalleled enthusiasm for capturing the striking period style and visual decadence of the Roaring ’20s. From Art Deco to European Deco to Hollywood Regency, the film evokes a sense of luxury in every scene. “We’re seeing a resurgence of interest in the Art Deco trend and period styling,” says Jackie Hirschhaut, vice president of the American Home Furnishings Alliance. “Movies like ‘The Great Gatsby’ highlight the beauty of these timeless styles and create demand for unique looks. Manufacturers have responded with a variety of options in case goods, upholstery, accessories and accents—which means moviegoers can bring a little bit of ‘Gatsby’

Art Deco styling on HGTV HOME Furniture’s Silver Leaf Credenza adds a touch of glam in the living or dining room as well as lots of storage options, at about $1,899. Jay Gatsby would probably feel right at home resting from his excesses in this lush After Eight upholstered bed from Michael Amini Furniture Designs. flair to their own homes.” The Art Deco style is characterized by bold, geometric and linear shapes with nods to industrialism. It’s a look whose forms are at once streamlined and architectural, yet heavily influenced by glamorous fashion, sensuous lines and rich materials. Fortunately, you don’t need a Hamptons mansion or a bootlegger’s budget to indulge this desire. Luhrmann’s lavish set designs

were based on the great early20th-century houses of Long Island’s North Shore. Even though Art Deco design was the epitome of luxury, it can be seen at retail today in a range of home furnishings offered at all price points. That means it can be easy to give yourself the green light when it comes to bringing the authentic feel of the film and the era into your home. Start small with just one piece or go all-in with a room completely inspired by the look. Learn More You can find further furniture facts and decorating advice online at

New Book On Hope After MS Diagnosis (NAPSA)—While for many people age 26 is when their dreams are just starting to come true, for some, life can take a surprising turn. Consider Kristie Salerno Kent. That was the age at which she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. Ms. Salerno Kent was busily planning her wedding day, just a few short months away. Suddenly, she felt certain that her dreams of becoming a singer, wife and mom were out of reach. “I knew I wanted to become a Broadway star since I was 7 and performing on a homemade stage for my family. When I was diagnosed with MS, it was just after completing my degree in theater. I was beginning to experience numbness in my legs and feet due to MS that made me think I would never be on stage again,” said Ms. Salerno Kent. Her new autobiography, “Dreams: My Journey with Multiple Sclerosis,” provides an inside look at the fear and denial that Ms. Salerno Kent, now a patient advocate, experienced after her diagnosis and a defining event that encouraged her to follow her heart and live out her dreams. “Like so many people with MS,

Kristie Salerno Kent’s autobiography shows how she didn’t let MS end her dreams. for years I didn’t talk to anyone about what was happening, even my husband Michael, because it was too hard to explain. I always tried to hide my symptoms and avoided visiting the doctor. But then I got an opportunity to sing with a local band and I started to find the courage to retake control of my life and speak out about my MS,” said Ms. Salerno Kent. She went on to write and produce her first solo album,

“Believe,” in 2006, which was listed for several months on the pop/country music radio charts. She also started her own music production company and directed an award-winning film, “The Show Must Go On,” to help others understand the emotional and physical impact of MS. Ms. Salerno Kent became involved with MS organizations and is now a motivational speaker who shares her story and sings to inspire many others with severe health conditions. She lives in Atlanta, Ga., with her husband and two children, Kingston and Giabella. She says it was her family that motivated her to stop hiding her symptoms and take steps to improve her health. “I like to say that the word ‘dreams’ may end in ‘MS,’ but MS doesn’t have to end your dreams. I hope that now my story and my music can help others to pursue their own passions and use that strength to face MS head-on and get the care they need,” she said. Her autobiography “Dreams: My Journey with Multiple Sclerosis” is available now as a free eBook or audiobook download at You can also catch one of Ms. Salerno Kent’s performances at several events—follow her appearances at

Bring Sunlight To Any Room (NAPSA)—Tubular skylights are a sleek new way to easily transfer the beauty of natural sunlight into your home. These innovative light sources can brighten spaces that lack natural sunlight, beautifully illuminating closets, hallways, bathrooms and laundry rooms. The natural light transferred through tubular skylights can reduce eyestrain and may even act as a mood elevator. What’s more, they may help with energy costs because they may reduce the number of fixtures needed in a room. Maximizing daylight means you could go the whole day without turning on a light. How It Works A tubular skylight system captures and sends natural light down through highly reflective tubing. The diffuser, which is ceiling mounted, then spreads the light evenly through the room. Now, the ODL ENERGY STAR–qualified Tubular Skylight system includes a Solar Powered Dimmer, which allows you to control the amount of natural light by simply installing it into a new or existing 10-inch ODL Tubular Skylight. A three-button remote control operates the dimmer ’s shade from inside the house. At the touch of a button, you can regulate the amount of natural light, making this a particularly good choice for a media room, nursery, bedroom or any place where light restrictions are sometimes desired. In addition, the dimmer is the first of its kind that requires no hard wiring. Instead, it uses solar

As a bonus, the design integrates two LED lights, giving you the option for a soft glow into an otherwise dark room or hallway during the hours of darkness— handy for families with small children who wake up in the middle of the night.

The Sunglasses That Helped Define The Style Of The ’60s Are Back (NAPSA)—When it comes to the “Swingin’ ’60s,” few objects are as iconic as sunglasses. Recently, the brand that helped define the style of the era, as well as the ’70s and ’80s—Polaroid Polarized Sunglasses—has returned to the U.S. While looking good in sunglasses may not be that difficult, seeing clearly when looking through a pair of sunglasses can be another matter. That’s because not all sunglasses can reduce the glare when sunlight reflects off of surfaces such as water, snow or glass. Glare makes it difficult to see clearly because the light hurts the eye and obscures details that may be hidden behind it. Polarized sunglasses are designed to filter out some or all of the glare, allowing the wearer to see with comfort and without potential eyestrain.

Dr. Edwin Land—acknowledged as one of the developers of 3-D movie technology—still holds more patents than anyone except Thomas Edison. To better understand why the new glare-free collection from the innovator of polarized lens tech-

The man who brought polarizing lens technology to sunglasses, Dr. Edwin Land, also developed the Polaroid instamatic camera. nology has quickly become a hot seller, Eden Wexler, trend expert for the SOLSTICE Sunglasses retail chain, offered some brand insight on the glasses and the brand. “While many are very familiar with the Polaroid instamatic camera, which was introduced in 1948, few are familiar with the fact that its inventor, Dr. Edwin Land, developed the technology for polarized lenses almost 10 years prior and began selling the first commercially sold polarized sunglasses in 1937 when he formed the Polaroid Corporation,” said Wexler. “Polaroid Sunglasses have a rich and iconic history, and today, it is one of the top four global sunglass brands in Europe, selling over 4 million pairs of polarized sunglasses in over 80 countries,” Wexler added. The new line, which features Polaroid UltraSight lenses, ranges from $60–$98, with a higher-end Polaroid Plus line at $140. Other interesting fun facts about the brand: •Dr. Edwin Land created the name for the company and polar-

ized lenses from the words “Polarizing Celluloid” to emphasize the company’s focus on polarized lens technology and sunglasses. •Land is also credited with developing the first 3-D movie glasses in 1939 and goggles for the U.S. Air Force in the ’40s worn by the likes of Gen. Patton. In 1950, Polaroid Eyewear introduced their Cool Ray sunglass generation, the best sunglasses yet, made to protect people from reflected glare. •In the 1960s, the sunglasses were launched in Europe and became available globally in 45 countries. The company also offered a variety of unique Windsor rimmed sunglass models, which they followed in the 1970s with their famous aviator-style glasses. •The year 2012 marked the brand’s 75th year as a leader in polarized lens technology and saw it become part of Safilo Group— the second-largest eyewear manufacturer in the world. •This year marks Polaroid Polarized Sunglasses’ return to the U.S. at SOLSTICEsunglasses. com and better department stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor and Dillard’s.

2013 marks Polaroid’s U.S. return as a global brand focused on polarized lens technology. To learn more, visit www. or www.

A Better Breakfast Starts With Vegetables (NAPSA)—Here’s a delicious idea: Enjoy vegetables for breakfast. Eating a balanced breakfast with lean protein, healthy carbs and a small dose of healthy fat can be a great way to start the day. Vegetables such as onions help you increase your intake of dietary fiber and other important nutrients with layers of flavor. Use these easy ideas to start your day with a nutritional boost. •Add chopped onions, tomatoes and either spinach or kale to omelets. •Combine hash browns or other breakfast potatoes with cooked vegetables and tofu. •Sauté mushrooms, onions and bell peppers and add to scrambled eggs. •Use up last night’s leftover salad and top with a poached egg. •Spread a thin layer of onionflavored cream cheese on lightly toasted whole-grain bread. Add sliced tomatoes and sweet onions, avocado and fresh, baby spinach leaves. •Try this tasty onion quiche from the National Onion Association. A lighter version of the classic, this dish is easy to prep ahead and reheat in the morning to take to work or school. SWEET ‘N’ SAVORY ONION QUICHE Makes 6 to 8 servings 5 cups yellow onion, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 ⁄2 cup Canadian bacon, diced 1 cup nonfat Swiss cheese, grated 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 ⁄2 teaspoon black pepper 1 ⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg

Giving a Voice to the Cystic Fibrosis Adult Community (NAPSA)—If Ali Christensen Wilde had been born in the 1950s, it would have been unimaginable that she could dream of going to college and marry her high school sweetheart. But the 23-year old with cystic fibrosis has just done that—and so much more. The newlywed is now living in Provo, UT with her husband Chase, and is pursuing her undergraduate degree while singing and speaking out about living with cystic fibrosis as an adult. CF is a life-shortening genetic disease that affects about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. In the 1950s, most children with CF did not live long enough to attend elementary school. By 2011, the median life expectancy for people with CF was in the upper mid 30s. The disease primarily impacts the lungs and digestive system, making it hard to breathe and to digest food. More specifically, CF impacts the way salt and water move in and out of the body’s cells, causing the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections. One of the things Ali loves is to sing with her younger sister, 16year old Christina, who also has CF. While their first performance was a sad occasion—the funeral of their older sister April who had also battled CF for years—it unleashed a passion that would lead them to sing as finalists on NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2010. Last year, the sisters released a song, “Something About Me,” to

share their message that challenges, like CF, do not define them or hold them back from pursuing

their goals. The song and behindthe-scenes video are available for free on, a website and online community for people of all ages living with CF, supported by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. CF therapy may require up to 20 medications to be used every day with an average daily treatment burden of approximately 2 hours. Today, there are more treatment options than ever to manage the incurable disease. In the last year alone, several medications to manage cystic fibrosis have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Ali is grateful for the support she’s had and the encouragement she’s received. “Our mom and dad are great supporters,” she notes. “They want us to be healthy, they want us to succeed, but my favorite part is they didn’t raise us like they had sick children. They believed in us and wanted us to do anything that we wanted to do.” For Chase, the transition from boyfriend to husband has also included learning more about CF and the treatments needed to keep Ali healthy. As the life expectancy continues to increase, more young adults with CF are navigating independent living, relationships and career. Ali continues to inspire as she enters this new phase of her life. “There is someone out there for everyone. As long as we’re doing our best to take care of ourselves, we will find someone who wants to learn with us and who wants to love us for who we are.”

What Do Floors Hold In Store? (NAPSA)—It may not be what most people think about when they consider technological innovations, but science has turned its attention toward the floor and come up with some pretty clever ideas. For example, some floors are made of new materials designed to look old and others are of old materials given a new purpose. There are floors that really look like wood or tile or stone but aren’t—thanks to advances in digital photography. You can even have a floor that purifies the air in your home. Designers have been busy, too, experimenting with textures and unusual motifs. Here are a few of the more popular and intriguing: •Hardwoods: One new hardwood floor cleans the air. Revolutionary technological advancements bring new surface treatments to wood flooring that use sun and artificial lighting sources to break down harmful emissions and VOCs. It also rids the air of odors. As for colors, classic staples such as dark mahogany- and cherry-stained floors are seen and so are muted grays, vanilla and whites. Weathered and worn looks continue to gain ground. An “antiqued” finish increases the durability of the wood and allows it to withstand the high traffic and heavy wear of large families and pets. Manufacturers are also offering ecofriendly options such as bamboo and products with extended warranties and enhanced life spans. •Carpets And Rugs: These days they’re all about definition and texture, from leopard print shag to braided fibers. Growing demand has led to supersoft and easy-to-clean wall-to-wall carpet. Luxuriously soft man-made fibers are so stable that they can be cleaned with bleach and water

Whether hardwoods or soft carpets, stone, tile, porcelain or vinyl, floors today offer both the latest technological innovations and old-fashioned good looks. and come with lifetime stain warranties. Then there’s the trend toward projected fragmented digital imaging from computer screens directly on area rug designs. Rugs with pixelated designs look like they jumped right off a desktop. Contrasting with this are handcrafted rugs in tribal and traditional Ikat designs in muted grays and pastels. In response to a yen for classic aged looks, manufacturers present “new” rugs with foot-worn weathering and patterns that appear to have been faded by time and wear. A bright idea in recycling is glorious shimmering antique silk repurposed from Indian saris. •Tile Trends: Engineered stone commonly found on countertops has made its way to the floor. A composite of reconstituted natural crushed stone bound by a polymer resin or cement mortar, it offers nearly the same performance as sandstone, marble and limestone. Engineered stone is

nonporous, so indoors or out it resists corrosion from water, materials and air pollution. The engineered variety is more uniform and more stable than natural stone and more affordable. Porcelain, thanks to recent digital imaging advancements, can reinterpret stone, hardwood, leather, even linen. Rich coloring, veining, stratification and surface texture lend a realistic look without the high maintenance and price tag. Now you can get punk-styled graphics and graffiti on porcelain. The eye-popping “tagged” looks appear as paint-splattered planks and tiles. Other “urban” looks for tiles resemble rusting iron or chiseled concrete. •Laminate Looks: Photo-real hardwood, stone and porcelain are found in laminates. Advancements in noise reduction have helped to level the playing field between laminates and hardwood and vinyl.

A charming scene as viewed through normal vision is clear and bright.

The same scene as viewed by a person with age-related macular degeneration.

( N A PS A ) — The re co u ld b e good news for many people who take vitamins and other nutritional supplements to help protect their health. A new study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) helps clarify which are most effective and safe for treating age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a common eye disease among people age 50 and over. The Problem AMD breaks down cells in the back of the eye that provide sharp central vision, necessary for reading, driving and recognizing faces. Advanced AMD can lead to significant vision loss and is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. About 2 million Americans have advanced AMD; another 8 million are at risk. Smoking is a major risk factor. The Good News Fortunately, the National Eye Institute’s (NEI) Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) found that a combination of vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and the minerals zinc and copper—called the AREDS formulation—can help reduce the risk of advanced AMD by 25 percent. The Latest News In a follow-up study, AREDS2,

the researchers discovered that adding omega-3 fatty acids didn’t really help; neither did adding lutein and zeaxanthin. Lutein and zeaxanthin together, however, proved to be a safe and effective substitute for beta-carotene, which has been linked to lung cancer risk in smokers. Doctors’ Advice Study findings show a link between beta-carotene use and lung cancer risk not only for smokers but even for former smokers. “Adding lutein and zeaxanthin in place of beta-carotene could improve the AREDS formulation for both smokers and nonsmokers,” said lead investigator Emily Chew, M.D. “Millions of older Americans take nutritional supplements to protect their sight without clear guidance regarding benefit and risk,” said NEI director Paul A. Sieving, M.D., Ph.D. Many risk factors contribute to AMD, including age, genetics and diet. People over 60 should get a dilated eye exam at least once a year and consult an eye care professional before using AREDS supplements. Learn More For further information, visit

Enjoying Home Entertainment —Without The Techno Clutter

Clever new device connects all HDMI devices to any flat-screen TV— with no visible wires. (NAPSA)—The marriage of technology and entertainment has been a match made in heaven. The many things you can see, do and interact with through your home entertainment devices and flat-panel TV couldn’t even have been imagined a few years ago. Cable and satellite programming, gaming consoles, Blu-ray DVD players and other Internetenabled devices are just some of the ways we all enjoy our magnificent, wide-screen TVs. It’s a beautiful thing. But in many homes, there’s something that’s not quite so beautiful: the unsightly and often unsafe tangle of wires, cables and cords that can accumulate below and around your TV. Breaking open and running cables inside your walls can be a huge, cost-prohibitive mess. Plus, if you live in an apartment—you’re pretty much out of luck. Fortunately, someone has come up with a simple and inexpensive technology that connects virtually any HDMI-enabled device directly to your TV with no visible cables.

Proforma created their CableConceal Home Connectivity system specifically to solve this annoying problem. What they’ve done is to actually build specially designed ultra-thin cables and a power supply directly into a super skinny wall plate (about as thick as five credit cards) that, when connected to your TV, becomes virtually invisible on your wall. The only question is: “Why didn’t someone come up with this sooner?” Simple setup gets you started in minutes Using this clever electronic device is about as easy as plugging in your TV or DVD player, and it installs in just minutes—all without the cost or hassle of a professional installation. And no programming is required, either. This remarkable innovation finally gives flat-screen TV owners a safe, simple and inexpensive way to enjoy all their home entertainment—without costly electrical work or bulky, clunky cord covers.
