Page TURN 2 UP THE HEAT! (continued): Tidbits of Glenrock, Douglas & Wheatland • The Royal Monastery of Our Lady of the Wheel, founded in 1202 on the Ebro River in Spain, contains an excellent example of a type of central heating. The Cistercian monks used river diversions combined with indoor woodfired furnaces to heat the large building. • Fast-forward a bit in history, and Benjamin Franklin, a famous American of many talents, invented the Franklin Stove in the 1740s. His stoves heated double the space using less wood than fireplaces and were equipped to take in fresh air and minimize smoke. Another inventor, David Rittenhouse, improved Franklin’s design with an L-shaped exhaust pipe. The stoves became popular all over America and Europe. • The Franklin stove and other wood stoves helped heat homes more efficiently since the stoves generated heat all around their iron bodies. They typically used one quarter as much wood for twice as much heat. They did present a safety challenge though; touching the stoves had disastrous effects. Today, many efficient wood stoves are being sold with modern safety features. • Also developed in the 1700s was the first hydrological system; as the word implies, it used water. The system was installed in Peter the Great’s Summer Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was the real forerunner of central heating, and soon the French, Swiss and British followed with their own water-based systems in the early 1800s. • An interesting early steam-heating system was developed by Angier March Perkins in England in 1830. The first of his systems to be installed was in the home of Governor of the Bank of England, John Horley Palmer. The reason Palmer wanted the system? So he could grow grapes England’s climate! TURN UPin THE HEAT! cold (continued):

• When a Russian businessman of Polish descent, Franz San Galli, invented the traditional castiron radiator in about 1855, water-based heat really became popular. This invention contributed significantly to our modern heating systems. • The radiator system relied on a boiler located in the basement to heat water, and pipes carried the hot water to the remainder of the building. Many older homes still use these types of heating systems. • With the discovery of electricity and the study of how to harness and use it, inventors started using their imaginations and brainpower to invent many appliances to improve living conditions. One of these important inventions was the electric heater, invented by Alexander Graham Bell. • Early electric heaters consisted of small metal boxes holding electric light bulbs. The boxes produced a comforting glow, and as the heat transferred from the bulb to the metal, they got warmer and warmed the surrounding air. • These early heaters worked, but, of course, many inventors have improved on the heaters for generations. In 1905, engineer Albert Marsh discovered a metal alloy called chromel that proved to be a great material for making heating elements inside heaters. He became known as the father of the electrical heating industry. • Through the years, space heaters, as the small machines were called, made their way into homes. They worked great to heat the “space” where the family gathered. Fireplaces and wood stoves as well as furnaces with systems that pushed warm air from the basement were still employed as well. In colder climates, many wood furnaces were gradually replaced with coal, then fuel oil, natural gas and propane.

10 REASONS

Why Isagenix® is Your Anti-Aging Solution

1. SLOW AGING FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing™ products help eliminate harmful toxins and impurities from the body that can accelerate the aging process. These products also replenish the body with crucial nutrients for optimal health. The Rejuvity and other anti-aging products also address the need for optimal cellular nutrition that ultimately creates a new level of wellness, vitality, and youthful appearance from the inside out.

2. ADDRESS AGING ON ALL FRONTS-NOT JUST SKIN

The skin is largely an indication of how the body is aging. If the body has been abused, neglected and malnourished, then the skin will reflect this. However, if the body’s cells, tissues and organs are protected from harmful pollutants and replenished with crucial nutrients, the skin will reflect this level of health by appearing vibrant, glowing and youthful.

3. NO HARSH CHEMICALS OR IRRITANTS

The anti-aging products in the Rejuvity and IsaDermix® lines do not use any harsh, irritating chemicals or compounds, including phthalates or parabens. Other common products that include harsh compounds often require downtime and may damage the skin further.

4. PROMOTE SKIN’S NATURAL PROCESSES

Ageless Renewal Serum and other anti-aging skin products help minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles, support collagen production, improve elasticity and tone, and increase firmness by helping the skin remember what it has forgotten as we age.

5. BOOST ENERGY, VITALITY, AND OVERALL HEALTH

In addition to the superior skin care, Rejuvity and other Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing products slow biological aging of the entire body, leading to enhanced energy and a new level of vitality and improved overall wellness.

6. SUPPORTED BY SCIENCE

All of the ingredients in Rejuvity and the other Isagenix anti-aging and replenishing products are supported by scientific research. In addition, many of the company’s own products - including Ageless Renewal Serum - have been specifically investigated in scientific trials with extremely positive results. A recent trial on Ageless Renewal Serum showed a 92% increase in the overall improvement of the skin, and the CoQ10 used in Ageless Actives has been shown to be 800% more absorbable than standard powder forms used in other products.

7. SUPERIOR QUALITY

Isagenix prides itself in using only the highest quality ingredients. With Rejuvity and other anti-aging product lines, this commitment to quality continues.

8. UNMATCHED INGREDIENT FORMULATIONS

All of the Isagenix product lines boast unmatched ingredient profiles you can’t find in any other product. These include the growth factors, polypeptides and actives in Ageless Renewal Serum, the lipid-based CoQ10 in Ageless Actives, and many more.

9. ISAGENIX IS AHEAD OF THE CURVE

The Isagenix Quality, Regulatory, Technology, Science (QRTS) teams use the latest scientific research to create life-changing products, thus solidifying its position as an industry leader.

10. AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE REPLENISHING CATEGORY

Isagenix is the creator of the Replenishing product category. Its anti-aging product lines continue to solidify this position as the company continues to develop new products within this category.

Make 2012 the Year You Do It Yourself When it comes to home repairs and maintenance, you don't always need to hire others. Make this the year you do it yourself -- and save money. Here are some projects you can do yourself if you take it one step at a time: --Install laminate and tile flooring: The key is making sure the base flooring preparation is appropriate for the laminate. Ask questions before you buy and read the instructions. Putting laminate flooring on a plywood subfloor upstairs is different than putting down flooring on concrete in a basement. --Plumbing: You can repair a leaky faucet or toilet that

keeps running, install washers, toilets and sinks, and more, but know when the project is too big. If the project involves pipes that bring water into your home or if it involves digging up the yard, it's too big. --Simple electrical repairs: You can install a new outlet, dimmer switch or thermostat. You can rewire a lamp. Buy a voltage detector and be sure to cut off the power at the circuit panel. The key is to know when a project is out of the range of your abilities -- and safety. For many electrical projects, your local code likely will require a licensed electrician. --Decorating: Look through magazines at the library for ideas that appeal to you. Paint, wallpaper and new slipcovers or throw pillows can change the look of any room. Here are some more tips: Some of the big-box hardware stores have videos on project how-to, but the best ones are on YouTube.com where others have posted videos of their own. You're also likely to learn more about what NOT

to do by watching these. Expand your tool box if you need basics such as a hammer, two types of screwdrivers, and so on, but borrow any expensive tools you'll only need once. If you haven't done a project before, read the instructions twice. Ask for advice, and get a friend to help. If a friend is doing a new project, offer to lend a hand. You'll pick up ideas and hints. Take classes: Saturday morning classes at the local big-box store can teach you the basics for various homerepair projects. Rule of thumb: Know your limits so you don't end up paying more for a professional fix. David Uffington regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Write to him in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to columnreply@gmail.com. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

It had wooden tracks. • When the now-classic television show “Gilligan’s Island” first aired in 1964, critics were not impressed. The review published in the San Francisco Chronicle said, “It is difficult to believe that this show was written, directed and produced by adults. It marks a new low in the networks’ estimation of public intelligence.” The show went on to air for three seasons and spurred three TV movie sequels. • Believing that beards and long hair were too easy for enemies to grab, Alexander the Great ordered his soldiers to shave their faces and heads before going into battle. • You hear a lot about the isolationism of Switzerland -- the country that’s always neutral in any conflict -- but you might be surprised to learn how serious they are about it. The country’s system of roads is mined in 2,000 places and can be demolished in the space of 10 minutes. • Are you doing your share?

“A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.” – Benjamin Franklin

President and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) visited Hot Springs National Park on June 10, 1936, during the Arkansas centennial celebration. They toured the Fordyce Bathhouse. FDR actually never bathed in Hot Springs but did use the therapeutic baths at Warm Springs, Georgia, regularly to relieve his pain from polio.
