Seal’s Song Standards BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO


iven his roots in the UK’s late 1980s acid house movement and success as a global pop star, the idea of Seal diving into the Great American Songbook doesn’t immediately click as a creative coupling. But as an artist who has always been about honoring the song and as someone who grew up in a household where the songcraft of Burt Bacharach, Hal David and Motown’s deep stable of lyricists were part of the London native’s background, a project like Standards doesn’t wind up seeming so odd. With a move to his new home at Republic Records, the man born Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel was ready to dive into a passion project with help from producer Nick Patrick [Hans Zimmer]. “These are great songs and if you love to sing, as I do, it’s a wonderful opportunity to do some great [tunes]. Also, the people from Universal approached me with a great deal of passion. And I think if you get the [chance] to embark on a project with people who are passionate about it, you have to take advantage of that opportunity because they can be few and far between,” he explained. The 11 songs that make up Standards (14 on the Deluxe Edition which includes bonus cuts “The Nearness of You,” “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow” and “Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting)”) represent stories composers like Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers (a sublime and subtle “My Funny Valentine”), Cole Porter (the lovingly lush “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”) and Great Neck’s own Ervin Drake (a string-kissed “It Was a Very Good Year”). Seal’s rich and sonorous phrasing fit hand in glove with conductor Chris Walden’s sumptuous arrangements. Between the embarrassment of riches presented by the depth of the Great American Songbook and the complexity of the material, Seal was enthralled by the entire process. “The pot to choose from is so vast and deep that you can’t really go wrong,” he said. “With standards, even the ones that you’re not familiar with or sure of at first, after singing them a few times, you just realize that they’re beautiful songs and there’s a reason why they’ve been around this long. They were meticulously written, conceived and recorded.” With this current tour, Seal is looking forward to working with small orchestras in some markets, all while weaving in his own songs with these chestnuts. Concert-goers can expect an opening set of standards that gives way to an acoustic section, where he’ll be performing hits like “Prayer for the Dying,” “Kiss From a Rose” and “Crazy.” While he’s been surprised at how well they blend, tackling these more intricate compositions has given him an appreciation for the craft that went into them. “It’s interesting how well these songs work with my own original material. I guess the common

denominator is my voice. I’ve learned so much from doing these standards and learned so much about my own music,” he mused. “It’s altered my approach to singing. These standards are written and more specifically, arranged for the voice in a way that’s very rare to come across today. It’s not enough to just sing the song—you have to tell the story, and that’s a whole separate thing. If you think of people like Ella Fitzgerald or Frank Sinatra—they were great singers but boy, they were even better storytellers. Once you understand that the voice is about carrying the narrative, you realize how exposed you are.” Having gotten such a thrill from doing this material, Seal is anxious to delve deeper, all while continuing to write and record his own music. With the music industry in such flux, he’s even considered recording only singles and possibly only releasing EPs or collections of singles versus a traditional album of sequential tracks. In the end, his concern is with staying true to himself, his fans and the

compositions, whether he wrote them or not. “I think the song, the song, the song. As long as I feel like I’m contributing and honoring the song, then it’ll make it to a record. But if I feel like I’m not doing the song good service, then obviously [I’ll pass],” he said. “I’m never going to compromise my integrity. I’m never just going to put out a single in order to compete. I don’t feel I need to compete. I just feel that the people that I’m fortunate enough to have like [me as an artist] expect great music from me. They expect a level of music that has integrity, authenticity and for it to resonate and say something, whether that’s as a single, an EP or an album of 10 songs.” Seal will be appearing on June 26 at the Beacon Theatre, 74th Street & Broadway, NYC.

From Elmont To The NFL




178069 C








n April 28, the third day of the NFL draft was underway at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. In the draft’s sixth round, Joseph Jester, a young Baltimore Ravens fan walked across the draft stage. Standing at its center, he announced the team’s 10th pick in the draft in front of the entire stadium. “With the 212th pick in the 2018 NFL draft, my favorite team in the whole world is the Baltimore Ravens and they select Greg Senat, tackle from Wagner,” Jester said. About 1,500 miles away, Greg Senat and his family were together in New York City watching the draft, waiting for a phone call from one of the 32 teams that could use his services. At around 5 p.m., that call arrived. It was Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, welcoming the Elmont native to the NFL. “We were all ecstatic. We all just exploded and were so excited,” Senat said. “This is a great organization, a

great team with a great coaching staff. I’m just happy they wanted me to be part of this.” Senat went to Elmont High School and was a member of the school’s football team, basketball team and lacrosse team. After finding his niche in basketball, he transferred to Marianapolis Prep School in 2010. He was a member of Wagner College’s men’s basketball team for the 2013-14 season and remained with the team through the 2016-17 season. Despite his commitment to basketball, in 2016, Senat wanted to get back on the gridiron. “The initial thought about playing football [again] was I just wanted to play it for fun,” said Senat. “I was in a place where I was missing the game. I was having fun playing basketball, but I thought it would be cool to also play football if I could.” “When he approached me about the idea, my first response was ‘Hey, get out of my office, go down to the men’s basketball office, you guys are about to play in a championship and I’m not going to be blamed for

anything,’” said Wagner football coach Jason Houghtaling. “I told him to go see [men’s basketball] coach [Bashir] Mason, then come back and see me once it’s cleared by him. The rest is history in terms of his development.” Houghtaling and his staff put Senat on the offensive line to fit his skillset. In the first few games of his career, Senat tried to adjust to the game he hadn’t played since high school. “After a game versus Boston College in his first season, I went up and grabbed him because he had a rough day,” Houghtaling said. “He had to block [Harold] Landry, who is going to be a top NFL defensive end. [Senat] made some great plays, but there were seven or eight that didn’t look to good. It was only Greg’s third game playing football after a long break. I told him ‘Hey, keep working, you’re going to play in the NFL someday.’ How he responded to the adversity of the Boston College game showed me what kind of grit he had. He could’ve quit, but he didn’t.” Despite early struggles, Senat went on to start all 22 games over the course of his two-year career with the team. He focused solely on football in 2017 and then spent the start of 2018 getting ready for the draft. He participated in the East-West Shrine Game, becoming the first Wagner player to play in the college all-star game. He also attended the NFL Scouting Combine, where he participated in drills that helped give NFL teams an idea of what he could do at the pro-level.

20180615_XAL_LNW_PG00 - 12:13 June 11, 2018

“He has all the athletic ability in the world. He’s extremely intelligent. He just needs to develop that strength to block some of those guys. If he does that, he’s well on his way,” said Houghtaling. A week after being drafted, Senat made his way to Baltimore to meet with Newsome, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, and the rest of the coaching staff. He began work immediately, playing with high draft picks Hayden Hurst and Lamar Jackson during rookie mini-camp. He’s now working with the rest of the team during OTAs. “Training camp has been great,” said Senat. “I’m learning a lot. They’re throwing us right into the fire as rookies, which is the way it should be. You got to learn on your feet. I’ve met some great people. The coaches are giving me a lot of knowledge and taking a lot of time to teach me the nuances of the game and teach us all the fundamentals. It’s been a great learning experience and I’m getting better every day.” As for his future, Senat said his goal right now is to earn one of the 53 roster spots the Ravens have available. “As long as I keep a positive attitude and I keep on working hard like I have been doing my whole life, I think that’s all they want to see from me,” said Senat. “They want to see progress. Every day I’m doing something better and not going the other way. That’s just the mentality I’ve always had as a competitor and a person.”

Summer Reading Roundup Wolfe And Roth, Biography, Sports And Fiction BY JOE SCOTCHIE


s booklovers head to the beach, many do so with a heavy heart as two of America’s most energetic talents, Tom Wolfe and Phillip Roth, have passed away. Here are some of their greatest efforts.

The Right Stuff (1980)

Tom Wolfe intended to write a book about the entire space program, up to the Apollo moon landings. But once he finished with the amazing story of the Mercury astronauts, those seven brave men who got the space program underway, Wolfe realized

he had a finished product. It’s all here: Chuck Yeager, the mountaineer who broke the speed of sound, Alan Shepherd, the first American in space and John Glenn, whose orbit of the earth made him a national hero. You’ll read this 365-page book in one sitting, guaranteed.

The Bonfire Of The Vanities (1986)

Wolfe’s first novel was the ultimate ‘80s novel. Wall Street to Park Avenue to the South Bronx, stockbrokers to tabloid journalists to ghetto youth: All come together in an unforgettable grand smash as the unlikely Sherman McCoy must prove his manhood over and over again.

American Pastoral (1997)

Phillip Roth’s finest novel confronts “berserk America,” 1970s-style.

Seymour “Swede” Levov has lived a charmed life: Sports hero at his Newark, NJ high school, successful businessman, marriage to a former Miss New Jersey, only to see his daughter grow up to become an antiwar, bomb-throwing terrorist. How did it all go wrong?

Shop Talk (2002)

Roth was an astute critic. He also championed the cause of Eastern European writers living behind the Iron Curtain. Included are essays on Primo Levi, Milan Kundera and Edna O’Brien, plus Roth’s two great contemporaries, Bernard Malamud and Saul Bellow,

the trio that once formed the “Hart, Schaffner and Marx” of mid-20th century American letters.

RFK: Collected Speeches (2018)

Edited by C. Richard Allen and Edwin O. Guthman. This year is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of former New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy. The man still has his fans. Or as the publisher states: “With messages of hope in the midst of a fractured nation...Kennedy’s words speak to our times as strongly as they did to his own, a legacy testified to here by highly individualized reflections from notables, including Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, five Nobel Peace Prize laureates [and] two Pulitzer Prize winners.”

Belmont Group Holds ‘Spring Fling’ BY ANTON MEDIA STAFF


elmont Child Care Association hosted its third annual Spring Fling Hat Luncheon and Fashion Show at The Garden City Hotel on May 31. The gala event, attended by 265 guests, raised funds to contribute to the care and education of the sons and daughters of New York thoroughbred racing backstretch workers who would not otherwise have the means for trusted and quality child care. “Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive and academically inspiring environment. We are committed to promoting early childhood education, molding young minds and encouraging the fulfillment of dreams,” said Joanne K. Adams, executive director, Belmont Child Care Association (BCCA). “The Spring Fling is one of our most important events of the year. We honor individuals from the local community and the thoroughbred racing industry who give their time and resources to BCCA. As we raise funds, we also have fun. Guests wear hats to the luncheon as they do to the races. They enjoy a seasonal fashion show, buy raffles and bid in a live auction. The top item is part-ownership of a thoroughbred racing horse.” The honorees at this year’s Spring Fling Hat Luncheon were Nancy Kelly and Roberta Doheny. Nancy Kelly is the 2018 BCCA Thoroughbred Horse Racing Industry Honoree. For more than 30 years, the Westbury resident has raised awareness and funds for charities associated with industry. Formerly with The Jockey Club and New York Racing Association (NYRA), she has been a board director of BCCA since its inception in 1998. Roberta Doheny is the 2018 BCCA Community Honoree. The life-long Point Lookout resident is an owner and operator of a fifth-generational business, Scotty’s Fishing Station on Reynolds Channel, and the Buoy Bar Waterfront Grill, providing a unique and memorable experience for BCCA children to learn about fishing techniques and water safety at the annual Scotty’s Fishing Fun Event. In homage to the longstanding hat-wearing tradition at horse races, guests always wear hats to the Spring Fling. The fashionable fundraiser, held one week before the annual Belmont Stakes, includes a seasonal fashion show and auction where guests may bid for part-ownership in a thoroughbred racehorse. Spring Fling sponsors are The Garden City Hotel, Jackson Family Wines, Neiman Marcus and NYRA. Funds are contributed on behalf of key racing events including The Belmont Stakes Carnation, The Preakness Black-Eyed Susan, The Kentucky Derby Rose and The Kentucky Oaks Lily. Top retailers, beauty and health service providers, and the hospitality industry from across Long Island donate in-kind raffles and auction prizes. The Garden City Chamber of Commerce is also a donor. BCCA, a 501c3 nonprofit organization was established in 1998 to create a child care center, Anna House, at Belmont Park providing early childhood education and development programs for the children of New York thoroughbred racing backstretch workers at Belmont Park, Aqueduct Race Track and Saratoga Race Course.

pity. A polio outbreak is a theme of the novel. Cantor is victimized. He gives up on life. A high school athlete, Cantor could have been athletic director at Weequahic. Worse, he breaks up with his ever-faithful girlfriend, preferring to wallow away his life as a post office clerk. The Swede, on the other hand, is Roth’s most heroic protagonist. He marries a former Miss New Jersey, runs a successful ladies’ glove business and is the father of a young girl. The daughter runs away from New Jersey horse country to the Lower East Side, where she becomes a Patty Hearst-like radical, bombing a New Jersey post office, killing an elderly physician. Swede has achieved manhood; now, against all odds, he must fight to keep it. Which he does by remarrying and siring a young son. It’s a struggle which summons up all the will he can muster. Swede, as noted, is a Newark native. Roth, likewise, is inexorably linked that city. Newark makes an appearance in numerous works, often as a location for much nostalgia, with retirees lost in Florida, forever mourning the passing of a once-pleasant city. It can be moving, but Roth was avoiding the main drama. The signal event in the city’s 352-year history are the five days of rioting that took place from Aug 12-17, 1967. Roth’s treatment of the riots in American Pastoral was even-handed, from the trials of city residents to the response from South Jersey farm boys who filled the ranks of the state National Guard. With Newark, there are no happy endings. The city’s decline began in the early 1950s, with many industries leaving town. By 1967, Newark was a

time bomb. Roth was balanced, but there is no talk of renaissance, either. “It will be 500 years before things get better!” a despairing retiree blurts out. It’s always salutatory to be told something you already know. 500 years. Newark—or America? Or both? Roth’s canon had glaring faults. His rage gained him fans happy to see WASP America getting cut down to size. Too often, it got ugly. When Roth was down on certain ethnic groups— Italian-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Scotch-Irish Appalachia, Wall Street WASPs—he put female characters from those stock in the most degrading situations possible. If ever a novelist needed a blue pencil, it was Roth. With American Pastoral, we’ll remember the man at his best.

National Cancer Survivors Day The Belmont Stakes 5k run attracts hundreds


On Sunday, June 3, communities across the globe held celebrations to recognize National Cancer Survivors Day, to honor cancer survivors, and to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding and even inspiring. To celebrate this day, Integrated Medical Foundation (www.imfcares. org) along with the New York Racing Association (NYRA) hosted its annual Belmont Stakes 5k Run/Walk. The event was the prelude to the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes. Runners and walkers and cancer survivors traversed the grounds of Belmont Park, leading up to an exciting finish on the track at the same finish line that witnessed the Belmont Stakes triumphs of Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed and American Pharaoh, and recently, Justify. “Life after cancer is more than just surviving. It can be beautiful, abundant, and fulfilling. And that’s something to celebrate,” said Rhonda Samuel Executive Director

Cancer Survivors are welcomes in the winners circle before the walk/run. of Integrated Medical Foundation and local NCSD coordinator. “Our celebration was filled with joy, hope, camaraderie, and compassion while we also recognized the contributions of their families, friends, and healthcare providers and raise awareness of the ongoing challenges faced by cancer survivors today.”


“Once again, we are proud to have partnered with the Integrated Medical Foundation and expand our annual 5k run to celebrate survivors on National Cancer Survivors Day,” added NYRA spokesman and race co-director Najja Thompson. “The Belmont Stakes is known as the ‘Test of the Champion’ and with the Belmont Stakes 5k run and walk, we’re able to honor another kind of champion—the survivors and their supporters—and offer our support to everyone currently fighting cancer by raising awareness.” Major advances in cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment have resulted in longer survival, and therefore, a growing number of cancer survivors. However, a cancer diagnosis can leave a host of problems in its wake. Physical, financial, and

emotional hardships often persist for years after diagnosis and treatment. Survivors may face many challenges, such as limited access to cancer specialists and promising new treatments, inadequate or no health insurance, financial hardships, difficulty finding employment, psychosocial struggles, and a lack of understanding from family and friends. “Despite the numerous challenges they face, cancer survivors’ serve as an inspiration to all of us,” said Samuel. “It’s time for our community to stand with them and help find ways to lessen the burdens a cancer diagnosis brings.” IMF offers free support groups to prostate cancer patients and one on one in person or phone support to survivors of all cancers.

Life-Saving Tobacco 21 Law Enacted In Nassau County A law that prohibits the sale of tobacco products to those younger than 21 years of age was recently enacted in Nassau County. “We are thrilled that County Executive Laura Curran acted to protect young people from Big Tobacco by signing this bill into law. Tobacco 21 is a common-sense measure that will help prevent kids from picking up their first cigarette. Approximately 95 percent of smokers started smoking before the age of 21,” Julie Hart, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) Government Relations Director in support of the new lifesaving law. “The longer we can delay initiation of tobacco use, the less likely it is that someone will begin this terrible addiction. Increasing the age for the sale of tobacco products is a promising

strategy in the effort to keep kids from beginning this deadly addiction and may decrease their risk of many cancers and other diseases.” A report by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) titled, The Public Health Implications of Raising the Minimum Age of Legal Access to Tobacco Products concluded that raising the age for the sale of cigarettes to 21 can significantly lower smoking rates. The IOM report predicts that raising the national minimum age for the sale of tobacco products to 21 will likely lead to a 12 percent reduction in smoking prevalence. “It is now time for New York State to enact Tobacco-21 legislation,” added Hart.

The Key To Health: What Every Man Should Do BY MYLES GOLDMAN


taying healthy is the key to a successful life for everyone. While there are many things you could do for your health, you may not know what to do first. In honor of June being Men’s Health Month, below are five simple health checks every man should do.

Get an annual physical

Getting a physical examination from your doctor is very important as you may have an underlying disease or illness you may not even know about. As you get older, your doctor may examine areas of your body that may be uncomfortable such as your prostate and genitalia. The better shape you are in, the quicker your examination will go. The more frequently you get a physical, you can be on top of any sight changes in your BMI, so if it raises at all since your last visit, you can change your lifestyle before it gets worse.

See your urologist

While it is very rare, affecting only 20,000 people per year according to the Mayo Clinic, testicular cancer is no laughing matter. Testing for testicular cancer is very simple; your doctor will check for any growths on your testicles and run some blood work or scans. While the causes of testicular cancer are unknown, the survival rate is still pretty high. However, that’s if cancer hasn’t spread to another part of your body. Another reason to see a urologist is because of prostate cancer, which can turn into colon cancer. The issue with prostate cancer is that the symptoms can either be unnoticeable. Tests for prostate and colon cancer are similar so one trip to the urologist can make a huge difference.

Get tested for skin cancer

Getting tested for skin cancer is as simple as a checkup by your

dermatologist. During the examination, the doctor will check the size of any moles or lesions you may have on your body, check your lymph nodes. Typically, any signs of skin cancer will form around the age 50 but can be from large amounts of sun exposure from years earlier. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, affecting over one million people in the U.S. alone. Even if you have existing moles on your body you were born with can develop into skin cancer. As always, wear sunscreen and protective clothing when outdoors in the heat for prolonged periods of time.

Check your testosterone levels

This test can affect not only you but also the people closest to you. Low testosterone levels can cause fatigue, agitation, loss of sex drive, stress, weight loss and severe depression. Low testosterone levels can cause a man to develop irritable male syndrome.

Fortunately, testosterone levels can be measured by having your blood taken. Healthy testosterone levels can be achieved again by weightlifting, anti-depressants, exercise and a change of diets such as less sugar intake and more protein.

Visit your Cardiologist

Affecting more than three million people per-year, coronary heart disease is the most common cause of death in the United States and is more common in men. In 2013, one in every four men will die from heart disease, according to the CDC. Coronary heart disease is caused by plaque build-up, which hardens which then clogs your arteries, preventing blood flow causing a heart attack. Smoking, stress, high sugar levels, fatty foods and high blood pressure cause coronary heart disease. Unfortunately, plaque build-up cannot completely go away on by itself. Usually, cardiologists will perform a bypass surgery, which removes the plaque build-up.

In The Know: Protein Powder

rotein powder first grew its popularity in the athletic and bodybuilder community, but it has become a mainstream item for individuals of all activity levels. Protein itself is one of the three macronutrients, and is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, and blood. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues and make certain enzymes and hormones. Protein powder provides an easy meal replacement or post-workout shake to help you preserve lean body mass and maximize your body composition. Protein powder should supplement a healthy diet, and it is only a small piece of the puzzle towards good nutrition. You need to eat well and train properly, or else all the protein powders in the world won’t help you get stronger. Here are a few key tips to keep in mind when shopping for a protein powder:

Look For Minimal Ingredients

You want to fuel your body in the best and most natural way possible. Be sure to read over the ingredients label on your protein powder to make sure you aren’t filling your body with chemicals and artificial sweeteners. You should be able to pronounce and understand every ingredient on the label of your protein powder. If you are stuck deciding between two protein powders, pick the one with the fewer ingredients. Try to avoid protein powders with artificial sweeteners like sucralose and aspartame, which can have several negative side effects including headaches and bloat.

Watch Out For Too Much Protein

Although protein is a crucial macronutrient, even too much of a good thing can cause harm. Some protein


powders may contain a lot more protein than you need, especially powders that are marketed towards bodybuilders. Believe it or not, excess protein can be stored as body fat. Plus, too much protein at once can be hard to digest and may cause nausea and bloating. Try not to exceed 30g of protein per serving of powder.

Don’t Forget About Consistency

Some protein powders can taste grainy or have a chalk-like consistency. Make sure that your protein powder can blend well and doesn’t require too many additional ingredients. A simple protein shake should include a scoop of protein powder, 1 cup of fresh or frozen fruit, and a liquid base such as almond milk. If your protein powder is still feeling gritty after blending, give another one a try and be sure to read reviews online

to see what other consumers have to say. Typically whey protein isolate is a bit smoother than plant-based powders. If you are a healthy and physically active adult, protein powder can help improve your overall body composition and maximize lean muscle mass. Your recommended amount of protein intake can vary based on your height, weight, and activity level. Speak with a registered dietitian that can help you determine how much protein you should consume in a day. Stefani Pappas, MS, RDN, CDN, CPT, is a Clinical Dietitian Nutritionist at St. Francis Hospital. She also provides private and group nutrition counseling at her office in Great Neck, NY.

Is Regenerative Medicine The Answer To Arthritic Aches And Pains? Stem cell therapy is a promising new regenerative medicine treatment Orlin & Cohen Orthopedic Group uses for many orthopedic conditions, especially arthritis. When you have arthritis, the cartilage that lines the bones has worn out. For example, in the knee of a healthy person, the cartilage on the end of the thighbone glides smoothly against the cartilage on top of the shinbone. In an arthritis sufferer, the bones rub against one another painfully. Approximately 54 million adults and 300,000 babies and children in the U.S. have been diagnosed. The condition is more common in women than in men and nearly half of U.S. adults with heart disease or diabetes and one-third of people suffering with obesity also have arthritis. According to the CDC, the total of the national arthritis-attributable medical care costs combined with earnings losses among adults with arthritis is $303.5 billion. Arthritis is a common, but difficult to treat, condition. Options include pills, shots, and finally, joint replacement therapy. Stem cell therapy may be a good alternative for people who do not yet want to consider surgery. Effective and noninvasive, stem cell therapy can show results in as little as five weeks. Simply put, a stem cell is part of your body’s

infinite “repair system.” Once divided, it may remain a stem cell or become another functional cell. Stem cells originate from a multitude of sources—the Orlin & Cohen team of subspecialists uses stem cells obtained from the patient’s own stomach body fat. Six to 10 teaspoons of fat are obtained through a small liposuction procedure and the stem cells are separated from the rest of the fat. Blood is also

drawn and its platelets separated and concentrated. The stem cells are combined with this platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is vital to healing, and injected where needed. Orlin & Cohen has also found regenerative medicine to be a beneficial treatment for ligament damage, where injuries occur when the flexible muscle that connects the body’s bones is stretched too far and can range from mild to moderate to complete tears; muscle tears, which are caused by overloaded muscles, resulting in anything from mild pain to complete muscle ruptures and plantar fasciitis, for which more than 2 million patients are treated annually for this heel pain caused by the irritation and inflammation of the band of tissue that supports the foot’s arch. Regenerative medicine has also been beneficial for tendonitis, the inflammation of the thick cords that attach muscle to bone is typically marked by joint or limb pain, tenderness and mild swelling. Stem cell therapy is particularly successful with difficult-to-treat tendonitis of the elbow (tennis elbow). If you or someone you know is suffering from arthritis or another orthopedic condition, regenerative medicine may be an excellent and effective alternative to surgery.

re you prioritizing your health or taking care of everyone and everything else first? When you consider that 80 percent of healthcare decisions are made by women, it’s clear that women are the primary caregivers, nurturers and health advocates for many families. If this sounds familiar, you may be finding it difficult to find time for self-care. Health is not a singular goal.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a new deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy for people with epilepsy, and Brian J. Snyder, M.D., FAANS, applauds the decision. Premarket approval for Medtronic’s Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) therapy was granted by the FDA as adjunctive treatment for partial-onset seizures and is a significant development for patients whose seizures have proven

to be drug-resistant. “Many patients with severe epilepsy are not able to control their seizures with currently available drugs and are not candidates for curative surgery, may be helped by this new DBS therapy,” said Snyder. As Director of Functional and Restorative Neurosurgery at NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola, Snyder has performed hundreds of DBS procedures and is the most experienced

surgeon on Long Island performing this procedure. “DBS therapy for epilepsy delivers controlled electrical pulses to target in the brain called the anterior nucleus of the thalamus (ANT), which is part of a network involved in seizures,” he said. “Few therapies are as versatile

as DBS, which is also approved for Parkinson’s Disease (PD), dystonia, essential tremor, and obsessive compulsive disorder.” To schedule an appointment with Dr. Snyder to determine if you might benefit from DBS, call 516-442-2250. —Anton Media Staff

“My doctor told me that my blood iron levels are high. I am a 45 year-old father of two young boys. I feel fine and am healthy. Do I need to be concerned?” This is a very common reason why people visit either a liver or blood specialist for a consultation. There are many causes of high blood iron levels including previous blood transfusions, alcohol use, certain hematologic disorders such as thalassemia, and hereditary hemochromatosis. Of these disorders, hereditary hemochromatosis is the most common and worrisome. Hereditary hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder which leads to increased absorption of iron by the small intestine. Normally, the body has a regulatory mechanism by which only a fixed amount of iron will be absorbed. In hereditary hemochromatosis, this regulatory mechanism is disrupted and there is no control on the amount of iron absorbed. The absorbed iron is transferred and deposited in several organs such as the liver, heart, pancreas, skin and joints. The increase in iron stores can lead to problems

Iron Clad What happens when you

have high blood iron levels

THE SPECIALIST David Bernstein, MD

such as cirrhosis, diabetes, heart disease, bronze skin and joint pains. Most patients with

hereditary hemochromatosis do not know they have it. Occasionally, young people may first be diagnosed with hereditary hemochromatosis after having an irregular heart beat. This may occur particularly after taking vitamin C, which leads to increases the amount of iron absorbed by the small intestine. Most people with this disorder have no symptoms until they reach their 40s or 50s as the accumulation of iron in the tissues is a life-long process. When symptoms occur, the most common ones are fatigue, impotence,

joint pains or symptoms related to new-onset diabetes. Many people with hereditary hemochromatosis will develop cirrhosis and 30 percent will develop liver cancer, which is the most common cause of death in these patients. Hereditary hemochromatosis is the most common inherited autosomal recessive liver disease in Caucasian populations but can be found in all peoples. About one in ten people are carriers of the gene causing this disease and one in 300 people have the disease. The diagnosis of hemochromatosis is made

through a combination of serum iron and ferritin levels, genetic testing, MRI findings and /or liver biopsy with specific testing of the hepatic iron index. The treatment of hemochromatosis is phlebotomy or removal of blood until iron and ferritin levels normalize. Once levels normalize, phlebotomy is usually performed three to four times a year in order to maintain normal levels. For those patients unable to undergo phlebotomy because of heart disease, anemia or poor venous access, oral iron chelation therapy is available. If treatments are initiated before cirrhosis appears or heart disease occurs, all potential long-term complications of this disease can be prevented. The key to treatment of this disease is to catch it early. It’s important that all people be screened for this condition with iron studies. Once someone is diagnosed with hemochromatosis, it is important to screen immediate family for its presence. This is a hereditary disease so if one member of the family has it, it’s likely that other members have it is as well.

NYU Winthrop Nurse Manager Awarded ‘Nurse Of Excellence 2018’

YU Winthrop Hospital is proud to announce that among a field of nurses and nurse faculty at 27 hospitals and schools of nursing in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, Lila Hageman-Sheehan, BSN, RN, CEN, stood out to win Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council’s top nursing honor, the “Nurse of Excellence Award 2018.” Hageman-Sheehan, the Nurse Manager of the Emergency Department at NYU Winthrop, was chosen for her outstanding contributions to the nursing profession and to the field of health care including demonstrating leadership, serving as a role model to inspire others, illustrating significant achievements, and going far above and beyond normal duties. “Lila Hageman-Sheehan represents all that a nurse should be, passionate, caring and competent, and she is a leader who fosters safer communities,” said Valerie Terzano, PhD (c), RN, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Officer at NYU Winthrop Hospital. “Lila has long been a catalyst for change, working to improve the health care of Long Island residents, and we could not be prouder

of her at this moment, receiving this coveted award.” Among other current initiatives, Hageman-Sheehan is taking a lead role in the development of a SAFE (Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner) program for NYU Winthrop, collaborating with

the Nassau County District Attorney’s office, Nassau County Police Department and others to improve upon and provide compassionate care to the victims of sexual assault. She participates in the Medical Reserve Corp of Nassau County, volunteering

to be on standby in the event of a mass casualty incident. Hageman-Sheehan’s compassion knows few bounds. Following the Las Vegas mass shootings in October 2017 that left 58 dead and 851 injured, she coordinated a collection to purchase lunches for the entire staff at two Las Vegas Hospital emergency departments. Those colleagues, overwhelmed by the support and compassion, sent letters of appreciation. Previously, in 2017, HagemanSheehan served as president of the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) Nassau/Queens chapter, initiating offsite programs for ENA members, including “Water Watch,” a water safety program for children and parents, aimed at reducing the number of pediatric victims of water-related accidents. In receiving this Nurse of Excellence 2018 recognition, Hageman-Sheehan also was given a unique teapot, in a tradition that dates back decades. The teapot symbolizes that nurses are like teabags; they don’t know their own strength until they get into hot water. —NYU Winthrop Hospital

Five Ways To Fight Fatigue And Energize Your Life BY RAJ GUPTA

caffeine causes fatigue in some people. The stimulation wears off and more caffeine is needed to produce the feelings of energy and clear-headedness. Try cutting back on all things containing caffeine—coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drinks, etc. Also, water should be the preferred liquid. A person is recommended to drink half their weight in ounces per day, so you can be dehydrated and not even know it.

Feeling tired is a common complaint people express. Sometimes the self-description morphs into “I feel tired all the time,” and experts say that’s when extreme tiredness becomes better known as fatigue. Fatigue, when someone lacks energy and feels exhausted mentally or physically, can negatively impact performance at work, family life, and social relationships. Often, it is not a medical issue, but one that can be reversed by a lifestyle change. People would be amazed at how much energy they’d have and how much better they’d feel if they treated themselves better. We all have busy lives, but there are simple ways to not let your schedule overwhelm you and make your health suffer as a consequence. Stress can lead to fatigue symptoms such as a craving for sweets and salty foods, difficulty sleeping and irritability. Try these five ways to fight fatigue and regain energy:

Dr. Raj Gupta

Run on the right fuel

A busy lifestyle can lead to fast food or carry-out. Therefore, preparation is important. Your energy and production are directly proportional to how you fuel your body. Always be thinking about what you will be eating later. Ideally, your diet should consist of eating approximately five times a day with a combination of complex carbohydrates—fruits and veggies— and lean protein.

Cut caffeine, add water

Research indicates too much

Stop burning the candle on both ends

Fatigue is often directly related to sleep deprivation. When you sleep is when most of your healing takes place and without enough sleep, your immune system breaks down. It’s recommended you get 6-8 hours of sleep per night.

Get regular exercise

No matter how busy you are, you need to make time for exercise on a regular basis, ideally for 20 to 30-minute sessions a minimum of four times per week. Regular exercise helps regulate your mood, makes you sleep more soundly and erases the little mistakes in our diet.


Body adjustments

The body can come more alive with a chiropractic alignment that provides proper functioning. Chiropractic adjustments to the spinal column relieve the pressure of a choked or pinched nerve caused by the rotated vertebra. A chiropractic adjustment increases one’s vitality and turns up their energy. Living life with zest, vitality and complete health is easier than you think. By managing these five aspects, one can maintain a fulfilling life. Dr. Raj Gupta (www.drrajgupta. com), who has more than 20 years experience as a chiropractor, is the founder of Soul Focus Wellness Center. He also is the author of Wellness Center Solution: How Physicians Can Transform Their Practices, Their Income and Their Lives, and of the forthcoming book, From Health Club to Health Care: How Gym Owners Can 10X Their Income. He has been featured in U.S. News and World Report Health, Woman’s World Magazine and The New York Daily News. He has a doctorate in chiropractic from Life University.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People are better in relationships when they are better by themselves. A person who is self-satisfying, self-soothing and self-entertaining is actually not experienced by others to be selfish at all, rather such a realized person makes wonderful company. You’ll see and be the example of this.


You’ll find there’s less to worry about this solar return. Superficial things that have kept you from peace and love will no longer stand in your way. You’ll do business with the warmhearted, improving things for people who need help. There will be a leap in education that helps you figure out an issue that was plaguing a certain group. Developments in a key relationship will have you traveling and socking away money for something you both want. Happy news comes in October. COPYRIGHT 2018 CREATORS.COM

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When a plant doesn’t grow, it’s neither the plant’s fault nor the environment’s fault. Rather, it’s a bad match between the two. Of course, the environment, not the plant, is what can be changed -- a metaphor to take to heart now. Nothing about you needs to change. Put yourself in the environment that supports you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Because of the halo effect, people often assume the very best in those they already like a lot and the worst in people they don’t. But each instance is different. Don’t make assumptions. Isolate events and assess them according to what happened, not according to how well it all fits into a narrative you’d like to believe. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is said that in talking you are repeating what you already know. But it’s also possible to discover through talk. Sometimes you don’t have a clue about what you know because there are so many layers to knowledge and most of the layers are unconscious. This week’s excellent conversations will be most revealing. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The temptation will be to spend money. You’ll be made to feel like that’s what everyone is doing. You don’t want to be left out! But is it just a marketing ploy? Investigate your current resources. Most of what you need is either already yours (but stashed away, so you need to find it) or available through friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Life will be like a potluck this week. You’ll put thought into your offerings, and that part happens at home. Bring it and leave it to share. Then forget about it. When it’s out of your hands, it should be out of your mind, too. Also, note that you’re just as entitled as anyone else to all the other dishes on the table. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Fun is contagious. But as is the case with most contagions, some people are more susceptible to it than others. This is why it’s always good to consider your audience. This goes double for any kind of fun that’s intended for a professional setting, which has entirely different rules. As long as you think things through, you’ll do great. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone is trying rather hard to impress you, which usually works the opposite way, because it’s human nature to be impressed by confidence, and confidence doesn’t pander. Your best tactic isn’t to run the other direction; rather, it’s to put others at ease so you can see all they really have to offer. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The Rodgers and Hammerstein song poses the question, “What’s the use of wond’ring if he’s good or if he’s bad?” which sums up your love life (fill in correct gender). You love whom you love, behavior notwithstanding. It will be better to lean in to try and understand than hang back in judgment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As for taking the next step: Greater consideration is advised before you leap. Thinking hard may be counterproductive, but thinking long is favored. Buy some time for decision-making. Days, or even just hours, will change your perspective. Also, ask around. Aries and Leo will contribute key information. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll spend some time doing the equivalent of planting trees so that future generations can sit in the shade. It’s an excellent example of how having intention and a plan makes things happen with effortless grace when time and the environment are on your side. There’s no urgency. Life is gently unfolding. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). From a human safety perspective, the world’s most dangerous things -- the things that hurt humans most regularly -- tend toward the mundane. If you’ve made it past the baths, stairs and kitchen knives without getting hurt, you really needn’t worry; you’re ahead of the game. Continue on with gusto, brave warrior!

The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations (2018)

Co-authored by John McCain and Mark Salter, the autobiography recounts the last two decades of the senator’s career in public service. From his super-cautious presidential run against Barack Obama, to his opposition to CIA torture tactics, his embittered opposition to Vladimir Putin (a man that McCain claims to hate), his co-operation with Sen. Edward Kennedy on immigration reform/amnesty and his disdain for the politics and personality of Donald Trump, McCain pulls no punches. McCain clearly misses the camaraderie he enjoyed with Kennedy, while urging policymakers to retrieve America’s standing as protector of a liberal world order.

Dungeness at Ben’s Crab

(Photo source: Facebook)

Get Crabby A deep dive into the local shellfish scene BY STEVE MOSCO


s the calendar claws its way through June, visions of the varied tastes of summertime dance in the heads of the hungry masses. While the requisite burgers and dogs of lazy cookouts offer plenty of comfort, the warm weeks of the season send most discerning eaters to the depths of the ocean for a fine meal. Eating seafood is reminiscent of a day at sea, even when it’s consumed at home or in a restaurant residing far from where the air breathes salty. And easily some of the most amusement one can have eating seafood is with crab. Sure, lobster deservedly gets plenty of press—but diving into the depths of a bucket of crab legs and biting into a buttery crab cake can sometimes offer more fun and flavor

than that other, more luxurious clawed ocean critter. Beginning with an appetizer favorite, crab cakes have been a menu staple at restaurants for a long time. Stuffed with lump crab meat—hopefully—the dish is then pan or deep fried and usually served with a rémoulade or some other type of dipping sauce that pairs well with a butter-and-oil laden crab patty. Restaurants making waves with superior versions of this dish include Anchor Down Seafood and Grill in Merrick and Fisherman’s Catch in Point Lookout. Anchor Down’s version is indeed packed with jumbo lump crab and is pan fried for a golden exterior while sealing in the moist interior. It is served with an Old Bay rémoulade that boasts the immediately recognizable and classic flavor of the go-to crab seasoning. Meanwhile, the Fisherman’s

Catch serves a sautéed Maryland crab cake with a more deep-fried technique for a heftier crunch and is served with dynamic carrot cumin slaw and a salty caper rémoulade. Staying in the realm of the deep-sea deep-fried, Bigelow’s in Rockville Centre—the all-time masters of the fried fish/seafood extravaganza—always grace their customers this time of year with soft shell crab. Currently hitting its seasonal peak, the soft shell crab is one of the most visually striking meals with its completely intact body hitting the fry oil and eventually your plate. Bigelow’s breading is light and crisp, and completely devoid of any unpleasant greasiness. From the claws, to the legs and finally the rich, oceanic body, the flavor on this specimen is perfect on its own or with a side of tarter sauce. While Dungeness crab is certainly

available at restaurants and fish markets on Long Island, it is a northern West Coast shellfish so prices around here can get a little steep. But if you have a hard time booking a trip to San Francisco, Portland or Seattle, it is worth a few extra bucks for this ocean dweller. With a tough shell and a maze of nooks and crannies, getting to the meat of a Dungeness can be hard work—but it is well worth all the cracking and effort. The stocky bruiser of the crab family, Dungeness is a meaty mouthful, with a nutty, wild flavor and seems to pair well with heavily spiced sauce blends. For a dish along those lines, check out Ben’s Crab in Oceanside. Ben’s gives the eater a choice of sauce and spicy level for all their shellfish combinations—the Dungeness goes really well with their Ragin’ Lemon Pepper and

Special Cajun Blend options. Eating a Dungeness can be a messy endeavor, so expect plenty of finger licking and a mountain of used napkins. Finally, snow and king crab legs are perhaps the most popular, most ordered dishes from the crab world. Snow crab legs, served in leg and claw clusters, are known for their sweet and delicate flavor, with a slightly fibrous texture. These are typically served plain with a side of drawn butter and for good reason—snow crab marries beautifully with butter, but is just as delicious on its own. They are also fun to eat—a seriously seasoned eater can sit dissecting snow crab legs for hours, that is why this species is perfect for all-you-can-eat spectacles. And the place to go for eat-til-you-bust dinners is Popei’s in Bethpage. Tuesdays and Wednesdays boast specials where

diners can sit and decimate the snow crab population for hours on end. And the jovial atmosphere at Popei’s adds to the crab-induced jubilation. Meanwhile, Popei’s also presents king crabs to its devoted customers. The legendary, spike-covered leviathan of the Alaskan deep is notoriously difficult and deadly to catch and the market price certainly drives that point home, coming it at about $30 per pound. With a taste that neighbors somewhere between lobster and a giant prawn and a texture that is surprisingly reminiscent to coconut, king crab separates itself from other species with its subtle sweetness and gigantic claws filled with robust meat. With its numerous species and varying shapes and sizes, anyway you crack it, crab is worth diving for this summer.

ith the baseball season in full swing, it’s time to arrive at the parking lot hours ahead before first pitch to tailgate. But, what is tailgating and how do you do it correctly?

Tailgating is essentially a picnic where people can cook food on mini grills and serve drinks from the back of their car’s tailgate. Generally, tailgating happens a few hours prior to the event you are attending so you have enough time to set up your equipment. The most important component to a successful tailgate party is to bring food and beverages to share with your friends and family. Typically,

food is cooked on portable propane grills that use 16oz propane tanks to reduce weight. It is a good idea to do as much as you can beforehand so you don’t spend the entire time cooking.

Food and Drink

The most popular foods for tailgating are hot dogs and hamburgers because they’re quick to make and

When it comes to beverages, keep it versatile. Bring soda, beer and water and if your friends want something in particular, have them bring it so you can save money. The best idea is to put your drinks in a cooler filled with ice before you arrive to make sure they are cold. Ideally, you should get a 52-quart cooler, but don’t waste your money on a dedicated fishing cooler because those are more expensive. Since tailgating starts in the early afternoon, you may not want a beer. Instead you can prepare a cooler with a faucet and fill with bloody mary mix and extra hot sauce or celery next to the cooler for the perfect early afternoon drink.

What to Pack

almost everybody will enjoy them. When it comes to preparing the food, do not do too much, just use salt and pepper on the burgers and leave the hot dogs plain and let your friends choose their condiments. Another option is tacos, which are an easy way to showcase your ability to host a great tailgate by assembling a table of taco condiments so everyone can enjoy a taco of their choice.

Something that is commonly forgotten at tailgate parties are chairs. Since you’ll most likely be tailgating for a few hours, you’ll eventually want to take a seat. The best chairs to get are the foldable ones because they are cheap and portable. If you are outside tailgating for a long time, it would be a smart idea to pack sunscreen and an umbrella because the average person can get mild sunburn within 15 minutes of being in direct sunlight. With all the cooking going on, it doesn’t hurt to bring a mini fire extinguisher. Even though you may not need it, someone else might.


Tailgating is a party, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t rules to it. Part of having a successful tailgate party is to be mindful of your surroundings and your own health. An unwritten rule is to show respect to others. If you want to tailgate before a

Yankees versus Red Sox game, no matter how much you may disagree with the opposing fan, keep your calm because fights will ruin the entire tailgate. Cups and utensils are key, but glass beer mugs, wine glasses and metal forks and knives can be left at home to avoid broken glass or possible lost utensils. Some good alternatives are plastic utensils and plastic cups. Once you are finished grilling, make sure your propane tank is turned off and store it as far away from others until you are ready to leave. Never keep a propane tank in a hot car because it can explode. Moderation is key as well. It’s not a good idea to be intoxicated before the game or concert because security will not let you in and your tickets will be a waste of money. Just because there are other fans around you, doesn’t mean they are automatically your friend. Avoid taking drinks offered from other fans, especially if they are already open. Remember to play appropriate music as a majority of music that is popular has explicit language, which may be offensive to others. If you’re going to play music, play the clean version. Keep an eye on your children at all times as there are many other people tailgating and some of the other fans may be acting inappropriately or could be using illegal substances. The last component of a successful tailgating party is to clean up after yourself. Bring a couple of garbage bags, one for recycling and another for trash—it’s not the venue employee’s job to clean up your mess.

pilsner (two of Mikkeller’s “ballpark beers”), other new recipes brewed on site and a variety of guest beers. Cans, bottles and merchandise, all designed by Mikkeller art director Keith Shore, are also available to take home from an onsite shop along with varieties from MKNYC’s friends at other select breweries. Shore’s bold, colorful artwork, sought after by Mikkeller fans and design aficionados alike, also takes the form of larger-than-life murals throughout the space, including a tremendous window treatment visible from the street depicting baserunner Henry sliding towards home, with catcher Sally defending the plate. Visible from the dining space is a vast beer production area open to public tours, where a 20-barrel brewhouse, several vertically stacked 20-barrel fermenters and a canning line allow Mikkeller to provide fresh and varied brews on a weekly basis. Mikkeller NYC is Mikkeller’s first location connected to a professional sports venue anywhere—a space that is equal parts game day hub, beer-obsessive destination and neighborhood watering hole.
