(Clearfield) – Motorists on Route 46 in McKean County will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit after PennDOT placed a radar-controlled speed display sign recently. The placement will raise awareness of the 40-mile-perhour speed limit in this area and aid in curbing a common type of aggressive

Vehicle speeds are then posted on the lighted section of the sign. Speeding and other aggressive driving behaviors are among the leading causes of crashes and fatalities in Pennsylvania. Other aggressive driving behaviors include running stop signs or red lights, passing illegally and tailgating. Aggressive driving behaviors were listed as a crash cause in more than 48 percent of McKean County crashes in 2012.

Photos taken during the Comedy Show held September 20th, at Bradford’s VFW Post #212, along with those taken at Parkway Field, September 21st just before the Autumn Classic Field Band Competition, are found in this edition……….For those of our readers who have been watching carefully, most of the prices for products, from food to fuel, have risen about 10% since the beginning of the year. It’s very possible that most have been so distracted with media hocus pocus concerning U.S. involvement with the Syrian civil war, the looming terror of Obama Care, and the daily fallout caused by the right wing behavior of a small but powerful group of House Republicans, that personal economics has been quite out of mind. We think that everyone should begin to pay close attention, and as it were, block out the noisy distraction of both misinformation, and misdirection fed to us by the daily media. Perhaps we can do nothing about it, but knowing what’s happening in our economy as it pertains to us should be helpful when election time rolls around…….. Sponsors for our National Hunting And Fishing Day special are as follows, Timeless Treasurers, Togi’s Family Restaurant, New Keystone, Burns & Burns Associates, Tasta Pizza, Worth Smith, Bottorf’s Embroidery and Screen Printing, and Bradford’s V.F.W Club…….. It’s interesting that while House Republicans are aware that the bottom dropped out of our economy in 2008, and have been saying since then that the administration has been less than honest concerning our recovery, that they have now decided that a doubling of the amount of money being spent to subsidize food over the last five years is too much. Regardless of the fact that over ten million people lost living wage jobs during the crash, the legislators are now moving forward in an attempt to decrease food subsidies given to the States. What’s worse is that States like Pennsylvania with Republican administrations and Republican controlled houses are following their lead by cutting food stamps to their citizenry……. Who can remember when we were told that deregulation would cause natural gas prices to fall. That myth was started in the late 70’s, and now, over thirty years later, our natural gas utility bills have managed to quadruple. Now we are seeing the same pattern with the deregulation of electricity. And prices to the consumer aren’t falling this time around either. The question is, what is the real purpose for deregulation? Who’s benefiting?

It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “De-funding Obamacare” The House of Representatives, in a last ditch effort, voted approval for a CR (continuing resolution) that funds the federal government through December but it included a provision to de-funding Obamacare. The bill has no chance of passing the Senate as written. Senator Harry Reid, majority leader, has issued a declaration that it is dead upon arrival. The political risks are huge for both parties in regard to this issue. The 2014 elections are around the corner and how the senators vote could change the makeup of the Senate with the Republicans gaining control and Harry Reid losing his leadership position. The Democratic representatives have already staked out their positions in their votes for the CR and Democrats in red states or red districts might well start looking for a new job. The emotional rhetoric is approaching new levels as seen in the union organizations vocally denouncing the unexplained consequences they are going to realize with the Act when enforced. Once supporting the Affordable Care Act, the union representing the IRS (The National Treasury Employee Union) has joined forces with many others including the AFL-CIO in asking for waivers to avoid being forced into complying with the Act. Calls by unions are being voiced in repealing Obamacare since it essentially destroys the health and welfare funds it

-by Bob Perry has fought for and stands for. This gives an indication that come election time 2014 union support for representatives and senators seeking re-election might be missing. Rightly so! The Act will most likely end the multi-employer health plans called the ‘Taft-Hartley Plans’ which are a lynchpin of labor’s efforts to unions like restaurants, construction and retail. There are behind-the-scenes meetings occurring including the unions with President Obama. Obama has rejected the unions’ demands to alter the Affordable Care Act to provide the ability for certain members to qualify for subsidies intended for the uninsured. The bitter taste that has resulted from unexplained consequences will have lasting effects. That is unless the President strikes a deal to appease the unions, but don’t count on that happening. At least the House has made a statement showing what the majority of the country feels. A tip of this iceberg has shown its face in that 77% of jobs created in the country this year has been part-time jobs and this is not a healthy trend. De-fund Obamacare and start over with baby steps in creating a healthy health care system. We need to start with tort reform and providing competition across state lines to create affordable care. If you remember, these proposals were made when the Act was being debated.

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES Don’t Dawdle On Student Loan Search Millions of young Americans recently began their senior year of high school. If your kid is among them, he or she is probably busy juggling homework, extracurricular activities and maybe a part-time job – all while trying to savor the last official year of childhood and simultaneously prepare for impending adulthood. You, on the other hand, are likely just wondering how the heck you’re going to pay for college. College may be a year away, but scholarship and loan application deadlines are just around the corner. As you’ll soon learn, there are tons of decisions to make and documents to fill out. Plus, some states award aid on a firstcome, first-served basis, meaning funds for your child’s dream school could be exhausted by the time you get your paperwork together. If that doesn’t make you want to get the jump on financial aid, I don’t know what will. Your first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, which is required by virtually all colleges, universities and career schools for federal student aid, as well as for most aid from states and individual colleges. It’s easiest to file an FAFSA online at You can also get a hard copy from your child’s school or by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID. The FAFSA filing deadline for federal loans isn’t until June 30, 2014, but many state and individual school deadlines fall months earlier. Many types of student aid are available to help cover costs at four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, and trade, career or technical schools, including: • Hundreds of thousands of free scholarships and fellowships are awarded each year. Visit www.finaid. org/scholarships for helpful tips. • Federal Pell Grants are needsbased grants given to low-income students to pursue post-secondary education. The maximum annual Pell Grant amount is $5,500; but students can receive Pell Grants for no more than 12 semesters. They need not be repaid. • Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants for up to $4,000 a year are awarded to undergraduates demonstrating exceptional financial need. • Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need,

-by Jason Alderman allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. • Low-interest Federal Perkins Loans are for students who demonstrate exceptional financial need. They are “subsidized,” meaning the government pays yearly interest while students are enrolled. They have no origination or default fees. • Direct Stafford Loans are lowinterest federal government loans with no origination fee and come in two varieties: needs-based “Subsidized” loans for undergraduate students where the government pays the yearly interest while students are enrolled; and “Unsubsidized,” for undergraduate and graduate students of any income level, where students are responsible for interest that accrues while enrolled. • Private Education Loans are offered by lenders to students and parents to supplement government loans. They

aren’t government-guaranteed or subsidized and typically carry higher interest rates, although you can borrow greater amounts. Details and rates vary widely. • Some colleges sponsor their own loans to students and parents. Interest rates may be lower than federal loans. Check each college’s aid materials to see if they’re available. • PLUS loans are federal loans that graduate or professional-degree students and parents of dependent undergraduate students can use to pay for education expenses. They are made through participating schools at a fixed interest rate. There is an origination fee. Visit the Federal Student Aid site ( ) and for complete explanations of the different types of grants/loans, calculators and many other tools.

Healthy Home Entertaining Make Mealtime Memorable With Lean,Flavorful Lamb (Family Features) When hosting your next get together, share a great meal that offers a variety of foods that are both delicious and good-for-you. Nutrition is often overlooked when planning menus, even though a recent U.S. survey showed 81 percent of grocery shoppers report putting at least “some” or “a lot” of effort into better eating. According to Janice Bissex, registered dietitian, one way to have enjoyable healthy meals is increasing variety at the table by including unique foods, such as lean lamb. “When it comes to healthy entertaining, it’s important to serve a diverse array of foods,” said Bissex, “and flavorful, tender lamb is a nutrient-rich protein source that’s as easy to prepare as other meats.” Here are a few reasons why lamb is the perfect protein to add to the menu: • Lean. On average, a 3-ounce serving of lean lamb has only 170 calories. Lean cuts include the leg, loin and rack. • Omega-3s. Lamb can contribute to your daily intake of the essential omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic (ALA). A 3-ounce serving of lean lamb provides about the same amount of omega-3s found in a 1 tablespoon serving of olive oil. • Nutrient Rich. Lamb is naturally nutrient rich, and on average, is an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, niacin, zinc, selenium, and a good source of iron and riboflavin. For more tips and tasty lamb recipes for healthy home entertaining visit www. and leanonlamb. Sweet & Sour Lamb Meatballs Yield: 8 appetizer servings (4 meatballs per serving) Recipe provided by Janice Bissex,

registered dietitian 1 pound lean ground leg of lamb 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs 1/2 medium red bell pepper, finely diced (about 1/2 cup) 1 large egg, beaten 3 scallions, white part only, finely chopped 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 cup hoisin sauce 1 tablespoon honey 1 teaspoon rice vinegar 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 3 scallions, green part only, sliced into thin rings 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line large baking sheet with foil, lightly oil or coat with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Combine lamb, panko, bell pepper, egg, scallion whites, soy sauce, ginger and pepper in large bowl and mix until ingredients are just combined. Shape meat mixture into 32 balls. Place on prepared baking sheet and cook until lightly browned,

about 12 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk the hoisin sauce, honey, vinegar and ginger together in large bowl until well combined. When meatballs come out of oven, add them to bowl and toss gently to combine. Place meatballs on serving platter with toothpicks and sprinkle with scallion greens and sesame seeds. Note: Serve meatball appetizers with small cubes of fresh pineapple. Meatballs can also be served over whole wheat egg noodles with a side of sautéed vegetables, such as red bell pepper, snow peas and cauliflower.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Tips For Staying AICR HealthTalk -by Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN Healthy This American Institute for Cancer Research Q:I heard that some people with “nor- out the body. In a recent study that folFlu Season mal” weight or BMI actually have too lowed about 3,000 women for five years,

(NAPSI)—For many Americans, last year’s flu outbreak serves as a reminder that it’s a good idea to get a flu shot—the sooner, the better. In fact, a recent survey found that 47 percent of Americans surveyed report that they are more likely to get a flu shot this year, given last year’s outbreak. The survey was sponsored by CVS/pharmacy. To help, here are some tips on how to stay healthy and avoid the flu. • Get The Flu Shot Every Year, As Early As You Can: It’s important to get the flu shot every year because it is the most effective way to prevent the spread of influenza to others and your immunity to the virus declines over time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting a flu shot as soon as vaccine is available. A high-dose vaccination is recommended for people over the age of 65, as they are at greater risk of developing severe illness from the flu. • Keep It Convenient: To make getting a flu shot more convenient, over 7,500 CVS/pharmacy locations and 650 MinuteClinic sites offer the shot during daytime, evening and weekend hours. No appointment is necessary and many health plans are accepted, including Medicare Part B, which typically covers the cost of a flu shot. • Wash Hands Frequently: Touching everyday items, such as door handles and other surfaces, can be difficult to avoid. To help combat germs, wash hands frequently (especially after coughing or sneezing) with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your mouth, eyes and nose. Alcohol-based soaps and hand sanitizers such as CVS/pharmacy Brand Instant Hand Sanitizer with Aloe can be effective when you are on the go. • Practice Good Health Habits: Getting plenty of sleep, being physically active, managing stress, drinking adequate fluids and eating nutritious foods are all healthy habits that can help to keep your immune system in top condition during flu season. If you do get sick, a pharmacist can be an excellent resource on over-the-counter remedies. • Make Sure Children Are Safe: Children under 5 (especially under the age of 2) are at high risk for flu-related complications. Remind school-age children of the importance of hand washing, coughing into their elbows rather than hands and using tissues when they sneeze. Please note: The influenza vaccine is not approved for children younger than 6 months of age. To learn more, visit:

much body fat that puts them at risk for chronic disease. Is that true, and if so, how would you know? A: Yes, it is true. Some people have weight that falls within recommended ranges for body mass index (BMI), but a “healthy” BMI for any particular height often covers a range of about 30 pounds. So it is possible to be in the healthy range, but have too much of that weight as body fat, especially if you’ve lost muscle with age, illness or inactivity. Emerging research shows that this problem, called “metabolically obese normal weight” (MONW) or “normal weight obesity,” affects at least 25 percent of U.S. adults who have normal BMI. Although these people do not face health risks as great as people who are classified as obese, their rate of heart disease deaths and overall mortality rate are increased compared to people with a healthier body composition. People with excess body fat in the abdomen seem especially at increased risk, because this fat is most metabolically active. It is linked with insulin resistance and promoting a chronic, low-grade inflammation through-

those with more fat deep in the abdomen (visceral fat) were more likely to have a a heart attack or stroke or to develop cancer compared to the women with less visceral fat. These women all received computed tomography (CT) scans, a specialized type of X-ray that provides more detailed images of body structures than standard X-rays. Outside of scans like this, it’s difficult to identify excess visceral fat specifically, but one simple indicator of abdominal fat is your waist size. Use a tape measure and compare your measurement to the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Health Organization recommendation to aim for waist size no larger than 37 inches in men or 31.5 inches in women. If despite a normal BMI, you’ve been gaining weight or if blood tests show elevations of triglycerides, blood sugar or hsCRP (high-sensitivity Creactive protein), excess body fat may be at least partly responsible. Discuss with your health care provider whether a check of your body fat level with a health care or fitness professional trained in measuring body composition might be helpful. If you do have a waist measure above the healthy range or other signs of excess body fat, focus on getting moderate physical activity every day and use strength-training exercise to minimize loss of muscle tissue. At the same time, cut back on calorie-laden beverages; eat healthfully with meals centered around vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans; and make sure that portion sizes satisfy hunger but don’t leave you stuffed. These steps may add up to help you lose a few pounds or waistline inches. After four to six weeks, measure your waist and check to see if blood sugar and triglycerides have improved.

illed with mesmerizing trinkets and gadgets — your home is a new and exciting world for your small child to explore. But this new world can introduce serious and sometimes surprising safety issues that many parents do not realize are risks.

Hidden concerns in common household devices As your children happily toddle around your home, they may come in contact with unknown safety issues scattered throughout. One issue you may not have considered is coin lithium batteries, about the size of a nickel, which can be found around most homes in everyday items like remote controls, keyless entry devices for your car, sound-enabled books and a variety of health and fitness devices. Because many of these devices are not regulated as children’s toys, the battery compartments often are very easy to open. Children are naturally drawn to these devices, as many include buttons that are fun to play with and push. The danger of these batteries is very real. If a coin-sized lithium battery is swallowed by a small child, it can get caught in the esophagus. The battery can react with saliva and cause a chemical reaction that can lead to severe injuries in as little as two hours. Unfortunately, many parents do not know about the issue. In fact, a recent survey showed 62 percent of parents reported being unaware of the risk associated with coin lithium batteries.

Spread the word In an effort to help keep children safe, Energizer and the National Safety Council are working together to educate parents and caregivers on the steps they can take to help prevent these injuries. “We know parents and caregivers are constantly thinking about their children’s safety, but we want to bring awareness to an issue still unknown to many families,” said Amy Heinzen, Program Manager of Grants and Strategic Initiatives for the National Safety Council. “Coin lithium battery safety needs to be top of mind and we hope parents will take the time to learn about the issue with these four simple steps to help children be safe.”

The 4 S’s of coin lithium battery safety Make your home safer and spread awareness with four simple steps to store, select, secure and share information about this hidden safety concern.

Store. Awareness of the issue is a good start, but making sure you have a game plan is even better. If you currently have coin lithium batteries in your home, store them where little hands can’t get them and little eyes can’t see them. It’s also important to not let children use devices powered by these batteries as toys. In fact, 45 percent of parents admit to letting their kids play with their keys, remotes and similar devices, which could very likely include a coin lithium battery.

Select. When you are in need of coin lithium batteries, it is important to do your research in advance, and select battery packaging that meets the strict guidelines set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for child resistance. Energizer was the first to introduce 20 millimeter coin lithium battery packaging that meets these criteria, restricting a child’s ability to get in the package, while still allowing adults to easily open it with scissors.

Secure. If the battery compartment door opens in the hands of a child, it becomes a potential hazard. It is essential to secure the battery doors of all devices powered by coin lithium batteries, including the keyless entry devices found on most car keys. You can also look for devices that feature a screwed back for additional security.

Share. Finally, you are encouraged to share this information, whether online with your friends, at playgroups or daycare, so every family can take the same steps to protect their children. “From flashlights to smoke alarm batteries to coin lithium battery packaging, we are always looking for ways our products can help keep families safe,” said Brad Harrison, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. “It is our hope that by bringing awareness to this issue and being the first battery company to offer packaging that meets federal safety standards, more children can be safe.”

Devices Powered by Coin Lithium Batteries From toys to health and fitness gadgets, coin lithium batteries are used in a variety of different devices found throughout the home. Use this list to become aware of common items that require these batteries so you keep such devices away from small children.  Blood glucose meters  Heart rate monitors  Pedometers  Sports watches  Electronic remote controls  Calculators  Digital thermometers  Flameless candles  Scales  Garage door openers  Keyless car entry devices  Electronic books  Electronic games

In case of emergency If it is suspected a child has swallowed a coin lithium battery, it is important to go to the emergency department immediately. For more information on child safety and coin lithium battery safety, visit,, and

Home Testing For AFib Patients (NAPSI)—If you or someone you know is on blood thinners and tired of traveling to a clinic for a clotting time test, you may be relieved to learn about a much more convenient option: testing yourself at home, on your fingertip. Many people with atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat, known as “AFib”) or other conditions that can lead to blood clots have to be on lifelong treatment with anticoagulant medications such as Coumadin (warfarin) to help “thin” their blood. Since diet, stress and other factors make patients react differently to warfarin, they need to have their clotting time tested regularly. That can involve a lot of time and hassle to travel to a lab, clinic or doctor’s office. The easy alternative—testing less often than your doctor recommends— is not a good or safe option. Checking your clotting time at regular intervals allows your doctor to make sure you are on the right dose of warfarin: Too low and it might not effectively prevent clots; too high and your blood could get too thin. Both can lead to serious complications, such as a stroke or uncontrolled bleeding. So it’s essential to have a regularly scheduled test that measures the time it takes for your blood to clot (Prothrombin Time, often reported as an International Normalized Ratio; hence the moniker “PT/INR test”). The real question is: where? Convenience at your fingertips The traditional way to get a PT/INR test is to have your blood drawn at a clinic or doctor’s office and sent to a lab, which may take several days. Now, however, there’s Patient Self-Testing (PST). You can test at home, at work or wherever you happen to be, right on your fingertip. You simply prick your finger, place a drop of blood on a test strip and wait about a minute for a small handheld meter to give you the result. Your health care team will still be closely involved with your care and anticoagulation treatment. You call in your results or enter them online right after you test, and you make office visits as directed by your doctor to monitor your testing and make therapy adjustments. But PST offers so much more flexibility and convenience that it can make a world of difference in how you feel about testing. In one study, 77 percent of the warfarin patients preferred the convenience of self-testing over testing at a clinic. Studies also show that patients who self-test tend to test more often, so they

stay in the proper therapeutic range longer than patients who are monitored less often by a doctor. The longer you stay in range, the lower your chances of having an adverse event, like a stroke or even death. Is PST right for me? If you’re considering PST for yourself or someone you care for, talk with your doctor to make sure it’s a good fit for you and your lifestyle. You should be motivated to test, physically able to perform the test (after training), and responsible to follow your doctor’s orders for how often to test and how to report your results. The next step will be for your doctor to write a prescription and connect you with a PST service provider that can supply the meter and the necessary face-to-face training from a cer-

The costs associated with self-testing may be reimbursable through Medicare or a private insurer, depending on your diagnosis and medical coverage. Research shows that nearly two out of three AFib patients who are not testing at home don’t even know it’s an option. So friends and family can be a big help by sharing this information.

To Get Healthy, Get Moving (NAPSI)—According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in order to preserve and improve your health, you need to do two types of physical activity each week—aerobic and musclestrengthening. What You Can Do Most adults need at least: • 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderateintensity aerobic activity (such as brisk walking) every week • muscle-strengthening activities on two or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms) • 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorousintensity aerobic activity (that is, jogging or running) every week. If 150 minutes a week sounds like a lot of time, you might be glad to learn that you don’t have to do it all at once. Not only is it best to spread your activity out during the week, you can break it up into smaller chunks of time during the day. Just be sure you’re doing your activity at a moderate or vigorous effort for at least 10 minutes at a time. Try going for a 10-minute brisk walk, three times a day, five days a week. What Others Are Doing Many people are getting an assist in all this from what may seem to some to be a surprising source. To help meet the need for better health education, Chrysler Group has gotten together with the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) to increase awareness about health and wellness disparities in minority communities and to promote achievable strategies that members of those communities can pursue to improve their health. We all know about Chrysler Group’s prowess as an auto manufacturer. What we may not know is that the company has been a leader in bringing innovative health programs to its employees and their families in order to improve their overall health and to reduce costs. The carmaker has received several awards from the National Business Group on Health for the strength and relevance of its health and wellness efforts. In fact, the company’s headquarters complex in Auburn Hills, Mich., offers employees many wellness amenities such as a fully equipped fitness center, an on-site pharmacy and health care offices, all within an environment that offers many recreational opportunities, such as walking trails, baseball fields and volleyball courts. Now, the goal is to take the company’s passion for health and wellness beyond the corporate walls, into the communities that could benefit most. The car company says it focused its message to working journalists because as leaders in their communities, they are in

a unique position to educate people about health and wellness best practices. The program is called Get Moving with Chrysler Group and has two parts, a walking challenge and an interactive “health and wellness experience” featured at the national conventions this past summer, touching more than 3,000 journalists. During the walking challenges, several local chapters of the NABJ and NAHJ en-

gaged in spirited competitions, as a way to earn dollars for their scholarship funds for aspiring journalists. So can a company that makes cars come up with a way to encourage people to get out and walk? One such company has and the results are good for our health.

Storm, Hurricane And Winter Storage Preparation (NAPSI)—With storm season in full tilt, it’s important to make sure that emergency generators are ready to be used at a moment’s notice. Residents of Snowbelt states need to add snowblowers and chain saws to the list. The most critical factor for all gaspowered equipment is the fuel, and particularly so if you use ethanol-blended fuel. Most fuel is formulated to be used within 30−45 days; as gas ages beyond this point, it begins to degrade, forming gums and other solids that can cause engines to be difficult to start or to run rough. Octane levels also decline as fuel ages, resulting in engines that cannot produce full power. This means generators that ran great when you used them a few years ago might not start now. The solution is to use a fuel stabilizer to ensure that emergency equipment will start when you need it. You also need to stabilize fuel in summer equipment that is going into seasonal storage. Lawn mowers, string trimmers and more can be stored with a full tank of fuel as long as you stabilize it. However, be careful of the stabilizer you choose; traditional fuel stabilizers have the side effect of slightly degrad-

ing fuel combustibility; this results in more exhaust smoke and rough-running engines. A better option is Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment. Utilizing a unique blend of enzymes, it stabilizes fuel for up to two years; the enzymes also help improve fuel combustibility, which ensures fast, easy starts. Because ethanol produces less energy than gasoline, improving the combustibility of gasoline helps restore lost power and fuel economy. Also, there is the added benefit of significantly reducing all emissions, including smoky exhaust, while keeping the carburetor or fuel injectors and combustion chamber free of performance-robbing carbon deposits. When added at every fuel fill, Star Tron will keep fuel systems clean and engines ready to start. Adding it now to emergency equipment as well as to lawn mowers and other summer equipment going into winter storage means they will all be ready for action when you are.

The World Wide Web of Opportunity (NAPSI)—One of the most important learning tools for students is broadband Internet at home. With it, students can tackle almost any assignment. Beyond benefits to education, the Internet offers a world of opportunity to the entire family, bringing quick and easy access to an endless variety of resources that make health care, job searches, saving money and staying in touch with friends or family as simple as the click of a mouse. For instance, with the Internet at home, you have the ability to: • Search and Apply for Jobs Online— Whether writing a résumé, learning interview skills, networking or finding and applying for a job, the Internet can be crucial for the job search. Check out sites such as, and • Access Health Care Information— With the Internet, you can search for quality medical care nearby, read reviews of health care professionals, keep track of your insurance coverage and monitor your health progress on sites such as http:// and • Find Educational Resources—Not only is the Internet a place to research and write homework assignments, it also offers students of any age the opportunity to explore everything from the GED test and colleges to getting student aid and finding a scholarship. Try, and • Explore Financial Literacy and Support—Getting a credit card, creating a budget, finding tax help, retirement planning or learning helpful tips on managing money—the Internet, and sites such as and, can help you get a better understanding of it all. • Stay Connected—E-mail is a quick way to send and receive messages. You can also choose to get bills and bank statements electronically, instead of through the mail. • Use Social Media—For most, social media is a way for family and friends to stay in touch. It’s also a way to find new recipes or learn parenting tips. Popular sites include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Skype. Unfortunately, not everyone has broadband Internet service at home. Many low-income families struggle to afford it, while others simply don’t understand the benefits the Internet can provide. In fact, in many low-income neighborhoods, broadband adoption rates are only around 15 to 20 percent, while in upper income communities, broadband penetration rates are as high as 90 percent. With 30 percent of the U.S. still without broadband Internet service at home, far too many continue to miss out on all the terrific resources the Internet can deliver. To help bridge this digital divide in

America, programs such as Comcast’s Internet Essentials have been developed. Offering families with at least one child eligible for the National School Lunch Program in-home Internet for less than $10 a month; computers for less than $150; and free digital literacy training online, in print or in person, it’s the largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program in the country. In less than two years, Internet Essentials has connected 220,000 families—approximately 900,000 low-income Americans—to the power of the Internet. Speeds

for customers are now up to 5 Mbps downstream and up to 1 Mbps upstream. The enrollment process has also been streamlined with instant approval eligibility available to more schools. To take advantage of this program, call (855) 846-8376 or visit or Additional resources, Internet safety information, how-to websites and instructional videos on how the Internet can benefit students and families can be found at

Breast Cancer: Know Your Risk And Make A Plan— It’s The Closest You Can Get To A Cure

(NAPSI)—Take a look around—at the grocery store, school open houses, the mall, the park—it’s all around you—one in eight women will get breast cancer.1 While this may seem like just another sad statistic, it’s real and will most likely touch your life in one way or another. However, what if you could do something for yourself, loved ones and friends to increase the chance of breast cancer survival? Fortunately, you can and all it takes is a visit to your healthcare professional and a simple risk assessment test called BREVAGen™. BREVAGen is a scientifically validated risk assessment test for sporadic breast cancer that provides five-year and lifetime predictive risk assessments to more accurately evaluate a woman’s risk of developing sporadic, hormone-dependent breast cancer. Did you know that more than 80 percent of women who develop breast cancer have little or no family history of the disease?2 Although routine evaluation tools such as family history, mammograms, ultrasounds and/or MRIs are important first lines of defense against breast cancer, women can better understand their risk for developing breast cancer through the BREVAGen test. BREVAGen is administered in a physician’s office using a simple, noninvasive “oral-swab.” Following laboratory analysis, physicians receive a comprehensive genetic risk prediction report to review with the patient. The patient’s risk of breast cancer is calculated by combining their relative risk score from seven genetic markers, called SNP’s (single nucleotide polymorphisms), with factors that comprise the patient’s clinical and reproductive history including current age, age at menarche and age at first live birth. More importantly, a physician can then develop an individualized breast health plan that includes appropriate surveillance schedules based on the patient’s risk score and recommendations for lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk for developing breast cancer. Make sure your breast health plan includes the following steps: • Healthy lifestyle—get regular physical activity, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, quit smoking and maintain a healthy body weight. • Clinical breast health exam—women in their 20s and 30s should have this exam performed by a healthcare professional every three years. Women in their 40s should have this done every year.2 • Mammogram—women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year and should continue to do so as long as they are in good health.2 • BREVAGen Test—women age 35 and older should ask their doctor to administer

this two-step test to determine their fiveyear and lifetime risk level. BREVAGen, which is currently specified for women 35 years of age and older and Caucasian of European descent, is the first genetic risk prediction test to have been validated in a large scale, peer reviewed, case controlled study. Utilizing data from the U.S. Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) Clinical Trial, 3,300 Caucasian women of European descent underwent breast cancer risk assessment utilizing the BREVAGen test. Of those 3,300 women, 1,664 had been diagnosed with breast cancer and 1,636 were in the breast cancer− free control group. Validation for additional ethnicities is anticipated in the near future. Until there is a breakthrough cure for all stages of breast cancer, the best way to survive it is to detect it early. Survival rates for cases detected early are 95 percent, but only 41 percent when diagnosed later.3 With all of the right tools and a comprehensive breast health plan outlined by a certified healthcare professional, you and your loved ones can find out the risk

for developing breast cancer and do something about it. The gift of good health can be one of the best gifts that you can give to a loved one.
