Summer Sun Protection Tips For The Whole Family

BY EMILY PRAGER SPECIALSECTIONS@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Summer is right around the corner, and families will spend more time outdoors. Exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays increases the risk of skin cancer, which is why proper sun protection is essential. In fact, the sun’s UV rays are responsible for about 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers and 86 percent of melanomas. “Exposure to UV radiation is directly linked to all three forms of skin cancer,” said Perry Robins, MD, president

of The Skin Cancer Foundation. “By adopting good sun safety habits families can enjoy summer outdoor activities without increasing their skin cancer risk.”

At the Beach

• Use a broad spectrum sunscreen daily. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Reapply every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating. • Cover up with clothing. Look for high-UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) swim shirts or rash guards and choose bathing suits that cover more skin, like one-piece suits and long trunks. Make sure to apply and reapply sunscreen to exposed areas of the skin not covered by fabric. To help avoid missing spots, apply sunscreen before putting on your bathing suit. When shopping for high-UPF clothing, look for The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. • Avoid tanning. There is no such thing as a safe tan, because tanning itself is caused by DNA damage to the skin. In addition to increasing skin cancer risk, tanning also leads to premature skin aging, including wrinkles, leathery skin and age spots.

Here are some tips to help enjoy a sun-safe summer:

• Remind kids to seek the shade. Advise kids to play in shaded areas to limit UV exposure. Check with counselors to see if there are adequate places for campers to seek shade during outdoor activities taking place between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are most intense. • Dress kids in sun-protective clothing. For optimal protection from

the sun, send kids to camp in sun-protective clothing. Look for tightly woven or knit, dark- or bright- colored fabrics, that offer the best protection. Don’t forget wide-brimmed hats and wraparound UV-blocking sunglasses. • Practice sunscreen application beforehand. Teach children to apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons, or about the size of a golf ball) of sunscreen to all exposed areas 30 minutes before outdoor activities. Remind them to cover easily missed areas such as the back of the neck and tops of the ears. If camp rules allow, ask counselors to help children reapply sunscreen every two hours, or after swimming or excessive sweating.

On the Road

• Treat your vehicle to window film. Car windows don’t provide complete sun protection. Though UVB radiation is effectively blocked by glass, more than 60 percent of UVA radiation can pass through windows. UV-protective film, also known as window film, blocks out up to 99.9 percent of UV radiation. If you have window film installed, remember that it protects you only when the windows are closed. When shopping for window film, check to see if the product has The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. • Drivers beware. Nearly 53 percent of skin cancers in the US occur on the left, or drivers’ side of the body. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen, particularly when spending extended time in a car that has no window film.

Additional Tips

• Do not burn. At any age, a person’s risk for melanoma doubles if he or she has ever had five or more sunburns. • Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreen should be used on babies over the age of six months. Emily Prager writes for The Skin Cancer Foundation.

Go Fly A Kite BY CHRISTY HINKO

SPECIALSECTIONS@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Flying a kite is a classic and inexpensive pastime. It’s fun and relaxing, anyone can do it and it doesn’t take a whole lot of skill. There are several shapes and sizes, all in a wide range of prices, found in dollar stores, sporting good stores, general stores or online. If you are creative and have the patience, try making one with some inexpensive or re-purposed materials, linen bed sheets and lots of thin but strong string. Long Island has some terrific open fields and great stretches of beach to launch your tailed flyer. Here are some local kite flying areas, suggested by the New York State Park Department: Kite flying is permitted at the following state parks: Belmont Lake, Bethpage, Captree, Governor Alfred E. Smith/Sunken Meadow, Heckscher, Hempstead Lake, Hither Hills, Jones Beach, Montauk Point, Orient Beach, Robert Moses, Valley Stream and Wildwood. Specific locations for each of the state parks are as follows: • Belmont Lake-between comfort station and the lake.

• Bethpage-picnic area playfields when not in use, during the spring and fall only. • Captree-in the overlook parking field, north of picnic area. • Governor Alfred E. Smith/Sunken Meadow-parking field 2 and west of the bathing beach, playing area east of field 1, area east of field 3, picnic area west of field 4 and on the beachfront where lifeguards are not on duty.

Jessica Orquera of New Hyde Park likes to fly her kite at Coney Island.

• Heckscher-fields 1 and 6, field 1 south of office, field 6 east of picnic grove. • Hempstead Lake-open field area, south of Schodack Pond. • Hither Hills-guarded bathing beach area, however not between flags. • Jones Beach-picnic area east of field 6. • Montauk Point-on beach west of refreshment stand. • Orient Beach-shoreline east and west of refreshment stand. • Robert Moses-field 3 and 4, east and west of bathing area, and fields 2 and 5, west of bathing area. • Valley Stream-ballfields when space is available. • Wildwood-playfield west of camp entrance. On Long Island, piping plover birds are an endangered species and kites threaten their nesting habits. Kites are mistaken as predators, which scare the birds from their nests. In state parks, observe signage indicating plover nesting areas or restricted kite flying, typically from April through August. Visit www.nysparks.com/regions/attachments/KiteFlyingLocations.pdf for

maps of these suitable kite flying locations within the state parks and plover nesting areas. Also, locally, check out Eisenhower Park’s kite field, near parking field 6.

Tips • Fly your kite in open fields or on the beach. Keep clear of tall buildings, trees, cars and power lines. • Never fly your kite when there is thunder or lightning. • Kites fly best in light breezes, approximately 7 to 20 mph winds. • Keep clear of other kite fliers, so your lines do not tangle. Whether you are an amateur or a novice, pack a picnic and grab your kite, tail and string and head to the park or beach. Have fun and let it fly.

Family Summer Safety BY GREGG BALBERA

about 10 people die from unintentional drowning, and one in five of these drowning deaths are children age 14 and under. Essential boating safety for all ages includes wearing life jackets, avoiding alcohol use and knowing weather forecasts and local conditions on the water. Ensuring all non-swimmers in the family learn to swim before joining boat rides can prove a lifesaving measure.

SPECIALSECTIONS@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Summer beacons outdoor play from water parks and horseback riding to fishing and building sandcastles. Add in baseball, barbeques and baboons at the zoo and the whole family will be sending Snapchat videos of their summertime activities. Did you know Grandma screams on roller coasters? And Grandad can toss a Frisbee well? There are many things you learn when multiple generations get out in the sun for fun. To help ensure summertime adventures are enjoyable for pre-schoolers to seniors, a number of safety precautions can help. Summer is an ideal time for grandparents to bond with their grandkids through any number of activities that generate laughter and classic family stories for years to come. With some preplanning and safety tips in place, little ones to older adults can avoid sunburn, mosquito bites, skinned knees and worse that can put a damper on summertime togetherness. Here are some safety considerations for seniors and their

grandkids when participating in outdoor activities:

Amusement Parks Read and follow all park rules, including the ride size requirements for younger children and physical restrictions for older riders. Make sure everyone stays together and within eyesight at all times. The intense gravitational forces and

jerky movements of some rides can strain the neck and joints of both children and older adults, so be sure to take a 15-minute break or so between high-speed rides or simply avoid them. Watch for nausea, dizziness and headaches as signs of bodily stress. Before entering the park, share an escape plan with everyone in your group in case of sudden weather changes, park-wide emergency, etc.

Biking SUNDAY, MAY 22 NOON–7PM

E S T.

Feeling the wind in your hair and push of the pedals can be exhilarating at any age. With some awareness, those new to biking and those who’ve been around the block a few times can enjoy many a spin together. A stable, comfortable bike fitted well for each body size will reduce the risk of falling and injury. (The young grandkids outgrow bikes quickly.) Cruiser or hybrid bikes that put riders in a better upright position are best for seniors. Choose even, smooth bike paths at local parks or recreational areas that fit the fitness and skill level of the youngest in your group.

Camping Hiking in the woods and munching on roasted campfire marshmallows always go better when the family follows basic camping safety. Whether you are tent camping or hanging in the RV, be prepared by

packing a first aid kit and emergency supplies including a flashlight, knife, map, compass and waterproof fire starter. Apply liberal amounts of insect repellent and avoid wearing perfumes and colognes, which attract stinging insects. Stock up on water and high-energy food and wash hands thoroughly after using the toilet or handling food. Be aware of how to respond to wildlife encounters and do not leave food, garbage, coolers or cooking equipment in the open.

A key to swimming safety is preventing germs in the water by never using the swim area as a bathroom or place to dispose refuse of any kind. Teach everyone not to swallow the water—chlorinated pool water or natural ocean, lake or river water. Adults are to stay within an arm’s length of little children for quick response in case the children get overwhelmed, scared or disoriented. Every hour, both adults and children are advised to take a bathroom break, reapply

sunscreen and rehydrate. Always swim together and in an area with designated lifeguards. Summertime vacations and outings together are the perfect time for grandparents to build incredible memories with their grandchildren. With some advanced planning and flexibility in how each adventure will unfold, everyone can make the most of family time and create plenty of fun memories to share via photos, videos and tall tales. Gregg Balbera is the president of Right at Home of Nassau Suffolk.

Yard Games For Classic Fun

Remember the good old days of backyard barbecues and just simple, yard game fun? We gathered a list of some of our favorite yard games, some classic and some more modern, but all equally fun. Here are our top 10 favorites:

Horseshoes

Croquet

Horseshoes is an outdoor game played between two people (or two teams) using four horseshoes and two throwing targets (stakes) set in a sandbox area. The game is played by the players alternating turns tossing horseshoes at stakes in the ground, which are traditionally placed 40 feet apart. Some say horseshoes is an evolution of the game quoits, a game played in ancient Greece.

Croquet involves hitting plastic or wooden balls with a mallet through hoops (often called “wickets” in the United States) embedded in a grass playing court. Croquet is credited to London in the mid-1800s, but the sport is a variation of pall mall, a French and Italian concept as early as 1611.

Cornhole

Cornhole (also known as dummy boards, bean bag toss, dadhole, doghouse or bags) is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bags of corn (or bean bags) at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. Some claim the game originated in Germany in the 1300s, but domestically, origination claims lie in the Kentucky hills and in Cincinnati.

Bocce

Bocce is a ball sport that originated in Italy and is closely related to British bowls and French pétanque, with a common ancestry from ancient games played in the Roman Empire. Usually played on soil, dirt or asphalt courts, the weighted balls are thrown or rolled underhand, like in bowling or horseshoes.

Flying Disc

The flying disc, or more commonly known now by its trademarked name, Frisbee, has probably been around for centuries. Its documented discovery, though, was by a man named Fred Morrison in 1938, when he was offered a quarter for a cake pan that he and his wife were tossing back and forth to each other on a beach in California. The rest is history.

Rollors

150442 C

Rollors is a new game developed by Matt Butler, a veteran, after returning from deployment. The game is a little bit bowling, a little bit bocce and a little bit horseshoes, best played on grass or sand.

WHAT’S

KamJam

KanJam is played with a flying disc and two cans in which you deflect the disc. The game was originally just called “Garbage Can Frisbee” between friends Charles Sciandra and Paul Swisher in Buffalo in the 1980s. The duo initially had patenting problems with some preexisting games, but finally marketed KanJam in 2005.

& FUN

ALL OVER?

Kickball

Kickball, originally called kick baseball, is a playground game and a league game, similar to baseball, invented in the United States in 1917 by Nicholas C. Seuss, supervisor of Cincinnati Park Playgrounds. Instead of hitting a small, hard ball with a bat, players kick a large inflated rubber ball; this makes it more accessible to young children.

Lawn jarts

Lawn darts (also known as jarts or yard darts) is a lawn game for two players or teams. A lawn dart set usually includes four large darts and two targets, played similar to horseshoes. The metal, dagger-tipped toys were banned in the 1980s because of serious injuries and reported deaths. Modern jarts, tossed underhand, are now weighted and have plastic or rounded tips.

Badminton is a racquet sport played by hitting a shuttlecock across a net, often played casually in the yard or at the beach. The most common forms of the game are “singles” (with one player per side) and “doubles” (with two players per side). Games employing shuttlecocks have been played for centuries across Eurasia, but the modern game is derived from the British and is a variant of the earlier 1800s game of battledore and shuttlecock.

Lifesaver

A day in the life of a lifeguard BY JENNIFER FAUCI JFAUCI@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

The smell of coconut sunblock, nautical blue and white stripes, flip-flops and colorful fruity drinks epitomize the start of summer. To Massapequa native Christopher Burke, the start of summer means one thing: saving lives. The 21-year-old has a special relationship with water. An avid swimmer and surfer, Burke has also been a trained and certified lifeguard for the past five years. “I wanted to become a lifeguard since I started going to the community pool as a child,” said Burke, who is a graduate of the State University of Albany. “Some of my coaches were lifeguards, and I thought that it would be a great way to use my love of swimming and training for this job.” As part of the Jones Beach Junior Lifeguard program—which teaches young kids and teenagers how to train and perform beach lifeguard tasks—Burke, who swam competitively since he was 10, completed a rigorous training schedule in order to prepare him for the lifeguard hire test. He was required to swim a certain number of laps in a given period of time, which came easily to Burke as he was already an experienced swimmer. “We also had to learn all of the different types of skills that a lifeguard needed to know, such as water escapes, the different types of saves, water entries, how to rescue the victim depending on their injuries and needs and how to use the equipment in the water to make sure the victim is properly taken care of,” he said, adding that performing CPR/AED, as well as First Aid American Red Cross lifeguard and Nassau County lifeguard certification are mandated requirements. “At the end of the course, all of the lifeguards in training had to pass a physical and written test, which assesses our skill capability and knowledge of what to do in certain scenarios.” As a Nassau County lifeguard, Burke spent four years at Hicksville’s Cantiague Park pool before accepting a new position this summer. Currently one of several lifeguards inside Eisenhower Park’s Aquatic Center, his day starts bright and early at 9 a.m.

“I have to be in the stand at Aside from his essential whistle, 10 a.m., and every day, I sit in a Burke’s most important item to have 20-minute rotation with the other with him is his first aid kit. He also lifeguards, needs water, which allows a lifeguard everyone to buoy, sunAs a little kid, I remember sit at each glasses and how I looked up to a stand at an umbrella. coach of mine and least once He is also admired him for being a day,” he responsible said. “Every for placing able to save people. hour, I get a all of the 20-minute backboards break in the lifeguard office where I in an easily accessible area. But normally eat, reapply sunscreen or as he explained, there are many just relax. I work until 6 p.m., five days a week like any other full-time job.” Ever wonder why lifeguards carry around those whistles? Not just for a fashion statement, each whistle means a different signal. In an emergency save-and-rescue situation, all lifeguards must respond immediately, even those on break. “When a lifeguard gets the attention of a patron they blow one whistle. If the lifeguard goes into the water to rescue a patron, they blow two hard, fast whistles,” said Burke. “To get the attention of a supervisor, the lifeguard will blow three short whistles. Finally, when a lifeguard blows four short, hard, fast, loud whistles, that means that a patron has to be backboarded because they either hurt their back or neck and first responders need to be called.”

differences between being a beach lifeguard and a pool lifeguard. “In a pool, you are confined to only one area that you have to watch at a time, while at the beach, you have the entire ocean,” said Burke, who added that beach lifeguards require a specific level of vision to even be considered. ”Being a beach lifeguard also requires knowledge of the ocean, but the most important characteristics that all lifeguards should possess is confidence, focus and patience.” Burke considers himself a good

May Is National Water Safety Month Here’s what we know: water is everywhere and Long Islanders flock to the beaches and pools as soon as the weather gets warm. While that is one of the best ways to beat the heat from May to September, it’s important to know that drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death among children (1-4 years old) and it’s the third leading cause of injury-related deaths among children under the age of 19. With that in mind, it’s important to observe some basic water safety tips when heading to the ocean or even just taking a dip in your backyard pool. Here are some general water safety tips from the American Red Cross: • Learn to swim. The best thing anyone can do to stay safe in and around the water is to learn to swim. Always swim with a buddy; never swim alone. The American Red Cross has swimming courses for people of any age and swimming ability. • Swim in areas supervised by a lifeguard.

be a very busy, stressful day, but I find that to be exciting because I want to focus my career on crisis management, and the fast-paced pressure world of lifeguarding prepares me for my future.” Burke recalled a time when he rescued an adult who then returned the pool the next summer telling Burke that he had learned how to swim. “Ever since I rescued him, he learned to swim and enrolled his children in swim lessons. My actions at work changed this man’s life, and that is a really good feeling,” he said. “I save about four to five people every season.” Last summer while on vacation in Westhampton, Burke rushed to the aid of a middle-aged woman. “She was yelling for help because she couldn’t get back in and said she was so tired that she couldn’t swim anymore,” said Burke of the rescue. “I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time, but it just goes to show that your skills and training are always with you, and you never know when you might need them.”

practices. • Pay attention to local weather conditions and forecasts. Stop swimming at the first indication of bad weather. • Use a feet-first entry when entering the water. • Enter headfirst only when the area is clearly marked for diving and has no obstructions. • Do not mix alcohol with swimming, diving or boating.

• Read and obey all rules and posted signs. • Children or inexperienced swimmers should take precautions, such as wearing a U.S. Coast Guardapproved personal floatation device (PFD) when around the water. • Watch out for the dangerous “too’s” – too tired, too cold, too far from safety, too much sun, too much strenuous activity. • Set water safety rules for the whole family based on swimming abilities (for example, inexperienced swimmers should stay in water less than chest deep). • Be knowledgeable of the water environment you are in and its potential hazards, such as deep and shallow areas, currents, depth changes, obstructions and where the entry and exit points are located.
