reetings Arcadians. I am pleased to offer you the first installment of The Arcadian, a bimonthly publication dedicated to introducing local talent to the community. Each cover will feature a work of art by the issue’s featured artist. The Arcadian exists to support local businesses and to support artists in the area by giving them a quality outlet for their work. Besides art, you can expect a blend of humor, business, fitness, anything other than politics. If you would like to submit any writing or artwork, even a doodle or a sketch that you like, to be considered for publication email: Editor@TheArcadianJournal.com My name is Dan Siegel. Three years ago I opened a personal training studio on 40th St. and Campbell Rd. What a gift to be living and working in Arcadia. I’ve always loved it here, but recently my family and I found out just what a spectacular community Arcadia really is. The gym was doing great, but within nine months of opening I was diagnosed with late stage cancer. I was devastated, but even more daunted by the prospect of leaving behind a wife and two babies. I resolved to get well. I didn’t want to lose my new business either. I was lucky to have recently recruited a likeminded personal trainer, Tony Rice, to work with me at the gym. With his passion for fitness and helping people, his eagerness to learn, and his entrepreneurial spirit, he was the ideal potential business partner. I made the proposal and he accepted, and ran the business well in my absence. Our partnership extends to this publication, with Tony heading the design department. It was a long, hellish battle, but I beat cancer. The first six months of chemo

didn’t work, and I became part of a clinical trial at The City of Hope in Phoenix. The treatments culminated in a stem cell transplant, an amazing procedure which allows the doctors to bring you to the brink of death in order to kill the cancer. Then they literally save your life with stem cells, which engraft back into your bones to create new bone marrow. The procedure required three weeks in the hospital. When I was recovering I got a phone call from a good friend who said, “It’s a second chance at life. Try not to be such a @#!%&* this time.” It was the first time I’d laughed in a while. During the fifteen months of treatments, we relied on help from family and friends, and the support from the community was awesome. I am eternally grateful to the neighbors and families from our daughter’s preschool who stepped up to help us with childcare so my wife could be with me during tests, treatments, and surgeries. Someone anonymously paid for my daughter’s tuition that year. Thank you whoever you are. Tony and some of our clients organized a fundraiser for my family to help us stay afloat while I wasn’t able to work, and many of the contributors were local business owners and people we didn’t even know. The nurses at City of Hope and a group of friends “adopted” us for Christmas, providing gifts for our kids. It’s good to be healthy again, training in the gym, and working on a publication that allows us to give back to the community. I’d also like to volunteer some time at Peak Performance to help any other cancer survivors who want to get back into shape, but don’t know how to get started.

Homuncules ...as told by William Cadillac Donovan

Evasive maneuvers

A

recent bear sighting, your very first, resulted in fully nine-tenths of your brain shutting down (because instead of respecting nature, you chased after it to get a closer look) and calls for revisiting several action plans for unplanned encounters. This is because you got lucky. You weren’t really in any danger but you certainly weren’t thinking when you chased after a bear. It wasn’t ‘til the bear turned around to get a better look at you (most likely because this isn’t the norm) that you realized that you had forgotten whether you’re supposed to make eye contact, avoid eye contact, make yourself look bigger, put your left foot in or stop, drop and roll.

To better avoid these moments of brainlock, let’s review some basic situational responses. Bears - Don’t chase them. If you happen upon a bear, don’t make eye contact. Walk away slowly and empty your pockets of all snack foods. If you come between a sow and her cub, try to hold the cub hostage. Mountain lions - They will most likely see you before you see them but if you happen to run into one and it doesn’t immediately attack, make yourself look bigger. In fact, if you’re going to be in lion country, wear heels with a big hat and a tight sweater vest. Vertical stripes on your trousers can also give the impression that you are taller than you actually are.

Terminators - If you happen to be in a dark alley when a terminator appears from the future, simply hand over your clothing and avoid a painful death. Dancers - Never agree to dance unless a dance floor is already packed. If you are asked to dance in a relatively empty establishment, immediately drop to the floor and grab at your Achilles tendon. Learn where your Achilles tendon is - you never know what kind of medical background a dancer may have. Spiders - Shriek loudly. Repeat until the spider has been destroyed. Shoeshine guy - When the shoeshine guy is pointing at your shoes, point to your ear buds in return. Never give the shoeshine guy the finger. In fact, wear your ear buds at all times on city streets and point to them whenever you’re confronted by pollsters, homeless people, proselytizers and people selling stolen iPods. That thing underneath your bed - Acknowledge the monster that lives under your bed and give it a name. Check carefully before getting out of bed. Speak low, loud and clear when calling out the name of the monster underneath your bed to let it know you don’t fear it. The monster under your bed can smell fear and you should assume that it lives underneath your bed because it has bad self-esteem to begin with and is really only gaining respect from you. There are a lot of beds out there that don’t have monsters underneath them. It’s time for your monster to move on, no matter how difficult

The Arcadian


that might seem for a spider who’s roughly the same size as a German Shepherd. Professional athletes - Always make sure to ask for an autograph. Never jeer a professional athlete as even the lowliest bowler will probably make mincemeat out of your soft decrepitude. The person who issued a restraining order against you - While it may not be your fault, understand that the restraining order can send you right back to jail, no matter the coincidence that you just happened to show up at her yoga class. Avoid eye contact and the perception of anything creepy. If you see her pull out a phone, run and hide.

Sleestaks - Despite their large black bulging eyes, Sleestaks have very poor vision. Also, Sleestaks are notoriously slow. Unbelievably slow. You can outrun a Sleestak. Try to avoid caves in the future. Rabid squirrels - Never try to outrun a rabid squirrel. Trying to outrun a rabid squirrel will trigger the instinct to attack and rabid squirrels are supernaturally fast. If you’re confronted by a rabid squirrel, accept your fate. -William Cadillac Donovan

Golf Fitness

th tee, legs tired, water right, wind gusting from the left. Lou’s already in your pocket for $20 and you need your best swing now. CAN YOU PERFORM? I hope so, but if you find yourself lying 3 next to that misted red line beside the lake, here is a golf fitness routine to give you the stamina and focus. Sorry Lou, you’re buying the beers next time. This routine alternates two very effective exercises for golf and general fitness, jump rope and plank holds (I will refer to them as plankertons). As you perform these exercises you’ll notice that your muscles will be working together as one cohesive unit. Now, I’ve seen some pretty ugly swings produce good golf shots, (Vern- how do you hit it straight?), but ideally if you can synch your body you can synch your swing. By alternating these exercises 3 times in progressive intervals, fatigue will set in and focus will be of greater importance. Complete this workout 3 times a week and you will have the stamina to hit your best shots when it counts.

not excessively bending your knees. Rigormortis is never a good thing- Stay loose just like in your golf swing, relax and ALLOW your body to synch, don’t try to force it. Small circles with your hands- Keep your arc consistent. If you flail your arms around you will catch bloody shin-itis. Listen to the rope- On a successful jump you will notice the rope is fairly silent. This is because it is kissing the ground as it passes underneath your feet. If the rope is loud, it is hitting too far out in front of you. This is not good. Not only will you have to jump higher to avoid the flailing rope but you will soon have another case of bloody shin-itis. Have Fun- Everything is better when you have fun.

Alignment- As you can see in the picture you are holding yourself off the ground with your forearms and toes. Heels are directly over toes, head over hands, and there should be almost a straight line between shoulders, hips and heels. Hips Up- Do not allow your hips to sag. If you feel pressure in your low back lift your hips toward the sky and tighten your abs. Breathe- Make sure you continue to take deep breaths.(Yes Julie & Karla, I’m talking to you)

Here is my challenge to you. As you settle into your plankerton, think of your most feared shot on the golf course, the three foot putt to win the match, the wedge shot off of a thin lie, the tee shot over water. Visualize and feel yourself in that situation, now see yourself execute it properly. Soak in that feeling of joy and victory. You are now mentally prepared to take on the golf course. Jump rope can be much harder than when we were kids so let’s go over a few tips. Keep good posture- Stand tall, engage the core, and jump using mostly your calves

be conquered, throw them into a circuit and they become a noble beast.Here are some tips.

ook at some of the artist’s paintings and you might think she is a gentle spirit. Look at some others and you’ll see deep contemplation, or a tortured seriousness, or someone vibrant and whimsical like the paintings on these pages. Of course Natasha Matveenkova is all of these things, and more. The reality is that she not only expresses herself through art, but like many prolific artists, Natasha actually recreates herself through it. Indeed the last time I saw her she had undergone an identity transformation that made me feel like I was meeting her for the first time. Her Russian accent and her practical sensibility remain, but her energy and appearance, along with the paintings she is currently producing,

suggest yet another side to Natasha, a harder, edgier side. Natasha is from Novosibirsk, the capital of Siberia. She moved to Phoenix on her birthday in 2005 and has recently become an American citizen. I had thought Siberia was all dreariness and permafrost, but southern Siberia is lush and hilly, informing her warm, appealing series of landscape paintings. Natasha is industrious, driven by a passion to create. When I first met her a few years ago, she was driving a sporty hatchback with thirty-three paintings of various sizes fitted in the back. Anyone for Tetris? She has since traded in for a larger vehicle. Inspired by small details in everyday objects that stimulate her imagination,

Tea Time

Natasha possesses a unique approach and style which allows her to create art that is experienced by more than the eyes alone. She has an insatiable curiosity and love for experimentation, using layers of brilliant color and unconventional textures, as well as tools as unlikely as a screwdriver, to make paintings that are dynamic and alive. Natasha’s work transitions from abstract to figurative styles and back again, demonstrating her multidimensional talents and interests. She is already adept in the use of a variety of mediums to capture an eclectic array of subject matter. If I were a betting man, and if there were art bookies, I would wager that Natasha will continue to explore in many different

creative directions. She has said the smiles she witnesses as people view and touch her art is her biggest reward for all the hard work. Natasha has shown in a variety of galleries, exhibits, and events nationwide. Many have sold out. Enchanting viewers with her thought provoking originality, Natasha Matveenkova continues to distinguish herself as a true talent as her art finds its way into numerous collection.

I began asking him questions between training sessions. All the trainers at that gym, me included, became better trainers for having worked with him. Will is part of a new breed of health professionals commonly referred to as “fitness geeks,” whose teachings are built on a solid foundation of science, and a skepticism for traditional methods. Some of his qualities are more rare and harder to teach. His facility for

observational assessment, for instance, allows Will to ask the right questions, and prescribe the right exercises and stretches to his clients.“Sessions themselves,” Will explains, “focus on your nervous system’s control of your joints and muscles. We correct imbalances in your muscles, improving your stabilization strength, and connective tissue integrity. By focusing initially on these areas, we head off potential injuries before they can manifest. Those looking to add muscle will find that my approach allows them to undertake the appropriate training necessary minus the aches, pains and setbacks so often encountered with traditional approaches.” Will left training to complete his doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine.

his financial crisis is worse, and more complex than the crashes of recent history: the Technology Bubble in 2002; the Savings and Loan fiasco in 1990 –’91; even Black Monday, the crash of ’87. So here’s the good news: credit is tight, and confidence is low, so stocks are cheap. Also, after every other market crash, the economy has recovered, with the stock market soaring beyond its previous high point. No one can claim to know where the market bottom is (or was), but stocks are undervalued right now. This is the first time in over 50 years that the dividend yield on stocks is higher than the yield on treasury bonds. Typically, the stock market will stage its comeback well before the end of a recession, so it’s a good time to get into the game. According to Warren Buffet, when it comes to taking advantage of market conditions, “If you wait for the robins, spring will be over.”

Whatever your stage in life, here are some keys to successful investing: Diversify. Most investors should consider mutual funds and ETFs instead of trying to pick individual securities. Allocate (stocks, bonds, and cash) your assets according to your own goals and risk tolerance. Day trading is gambling, not investing. Investing is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Keep fees, expenses, and taxes at a minimum. -Richard Siegel Richard Siegel is a founding partner of Siegel/Yocum Asset Management, LLC in Scottsdale and can be reached at 480634-1915 or www.siegel-yocum.com.

avorite Steak and Eggs - The Breakfast Club. A tender, little filet mignon in mushroom sauce with spinach, and a generous portion of eggs, are accompanied by the lovely “Potatoes O’Brien,” big wedges of freshly cut melon and pineapple, good coffee, good toast… the perfect meal.

whipped cream, it is delicious of course, but it’s hard to find a mocha that isn’t yummy. Mama Java’s wins because it does the trick with it‘s big-time caffeine jolt. Mama Java’s is not just a to-go joint, it’s a legitimately cool coffee house. Kick back and check out the artwork. Good people-watching too.

Favorite Omelet - The Jersey Girl Omelet at La Grande Orange. Pastrami, cabbage, and fingerling potato omelet, with a dollop of sour cream. Sounds weird? Tastes good. Substitute turkey for pastrami. It’s great both ways. Eat it - it’s good for you.

“The Wolf Pack” at Over Easy. Picture a crispy rectangle of hash browns layered with eggs your way, cheese of your choosing, and bacon, all topped off with another rectangle of crispy hash browns and you’ve just pictured the Wolf Pack.

Favorite Egg Sandwich - We have a tie between Bertha’s Café and Acacia Café. Bertha’s sandwich is a square meal with baked eggs, choice of meat, roasted tomato, and (get this), arugula and pesto. Greens on an egg sandwich? Why not? And pesto makes everything better. The Acacia Café sandwich you will love is a classic egg, sausage, and Swiss on a croissant. It’s dense, delicious, and easy to eat in the car. I had one on the way to the golf course a few weeks ago and I shot a pretty good round. Coincidence? I think not. Favorite Mocha - Mama Java.

passionately committed to the Rosenbergs, civil rights and Stalin. Their independent-minded teenage daughter, Rose, squirms under the weight of her parents’ oppressive Marxist principles. “Maybe I’m only a liberal,” Rose says, which provokes a stern lecture from her mother; and as the antagonism between the rigidly ideological Shelly and her questioning, rebellious daughter grows, it becomes increasingly clear that politics is personal and that developing your own beliefs comes at a price.

The charismatic warrior King’s aggressive pursuit of the French crown earns him iconic status, uniting England and France and briefly banishing the civil strife that will long outlive him. This Shakespearean epic expertly balances the thrilling heroics of battle with the painful and complex reactions of men who are sometimes unsure of the justice of their cause. KING HENRY V is a rousing, fascinating story about the power of courage and the price of glory. Tickets $35 to $68 Herberger Theater Center 222 E.
