Event Held to Promote National PTSD Awareness Day for 20th Ward Community Continued from page 1 On June 27, 2018, Honorable Committeeman Kevin Bailey and Social Change hosted a national Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) awareness day for the 20th ward Veterans and community residents. During this event, 150 residents had the opportunity to learn about PTSD and interact with victims of PTSD within their local community. Residents had the opportunity to attend breakout sessions

with facilitators, enjoy food and drinks and receive gifts for their participation. Special guest, community activist and actor Lamman Rucker also greeted the residents with a profound keynote speech on PTSD and bringing awareness of the disorder along with tools and resources for the veterans and community members of Chicago. PTSD is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. This event was developed to bring awareness and provide

tools and resources for all Veterans, community members, youth, and children. Todd Belcore, Executive Director of Social Change said, “Trauma is an unseen wound that impairs millions of people across the world each and every day. That’s why Social Change was honored to sponsor this PTSD Awareness Day event and cannot be more grateful for mental health advocate, activist and actor Lamman Rucker and other special guests for discussing both how to identify trauma and how to do something about it.”

STUDY FINDS THAT ONLY 23% OF AMERICANS GET ENOUGH EXERCISE A new study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has found that only 23% of Americans get enough exercise. What does “enough” mean? The government’s recommended physical activity guidelines call for healthy adults to do a minimum of two and a half hours of moderate intensity activity - or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity – plus at least two muscle strengthening days a week. OSF HealthCare Exercise Physiologist Michael Johnson says this lack of movement has a giant ripple effect across the country. “We’re seeing that there’s an increase in disease process as far as cardiovascular disease. We’re seeing an increase in diabetes, obesity, and all that can be linked to a lack of exercise or even a lack of physical activity. And as we’re going to see that, we’re going to see health care costs rise, and quality of life decline,” said Johnson. OSF HealthCare, an integrated health system owned and operated by The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis in Peoria, Illinois, includes OSF Healthcare System consisting of 13 acute care facilities and two colleges of nursing.

Median 2BR rent in Chicago is down 1.3% in the past year with 6 months of consecutive rent increases.

Chicago rents increased moderately over the past month Chicago rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, but are down moderately by 1.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Chicago stand at $1,080 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,270 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in December of last year. Chicago’s year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.2%, as well as the national average of 1.4%. RENTS RISING ACROSS THE CHICAGO METRO While rent prices have decreased in Chicago over the past year, the rest of the metro is

seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 6 of the largest 10 cities in the Chicago metro for which data is available. Here’s a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro. • Palatine has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 2.8%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,350, while onebedrooms go for $1,150. • Over the past year, Chicago proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.3%. Median twobedrooms there cost $1,270, while one-bedrooms go for $1,080. • Naperville has the most expensive rents of the largest

Chicago is also more affordable than most

other large cities across the country. • Chicago’s median twobedroom rent of $1,270 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 1.3% decline in Chicago. • While rents in Chicago fell moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Houston (+3.7%), New York (+1.7%), and Detroit (+1.3%). • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Chicago than most similar cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,070, which is more than twice the price in Chicago.

NEWS Englewood Organization Receives Grant To Create A Safe And Peaceful Community BY KATHERINE NEWMAN

Grow Greater Englewood recently received a grant from The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities that will allow the organization to train 20 individuals in restorative justice practices and peace circle facilitation as well as launch the inaugural Englewood Healing Event that will happen Aug. 19 on the Englewood Line. Grow Greater Englewood was established in 2014 and works with a community vision of making sure all people have the opportunity to live safe, happy, healthy and fulfilling lives, now and into the future. “Grow Greater Englewood is really a social enterprise that is working with the community and developers to grow a more sustainable food economy and green businesses to create wellness and wealth in our neighborhoods,” said Anton Seals, Jr., executive director of Grow Greater Englewood. Twenty community members have signed up to receive restorative justice and peace circle facilitation training which will be lead by Grow Greater Englewood along with Dr. Pamela Phoenix and Elisha Hall, founder of the Ujamaa Community Land Trust. The training will revolve around restorative practices for the community with a focus on connecting to the land and the healing benefits of the land. “We are working with two really great partners who are going to be leading this work, Dr. Pamela Phoenix and Elisha Hall who both come out of this presence of restorative practice, in particular as it relates to an African-centered point of view and framework around restorative practices,” said Seals. On Aug. 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Grow Greater Englewood will host the first Healing Event and Sunset Fire with the Community Drummers, Sankofa Rites of Passage group, circle-keepers, and Englewood community residents on the Englewood Line at 58th and Halsted. The Englewood Line is a former 1.7 mile elevated rail line that has been converted into a multi-use green trail to provide recreation, transportation and a source of jobs to the residents of

Englewood and surrounding communities. The Healing Event will be held on the Englewood line and participants will walk the trail lighting torches as they go until they reach the peace circle. While many of the goals of Grow Greater Englewood and the benefits from The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities grant are focused on Englewood, Seals said that the learning opportunities are much greater than that. While

Englewood serves as a “grounding” point, Seals said it’s also about connecting people, “back to this history that we have as African people, as people who have built this country,” he said. “As Englewood has changed over the last 50 years, once being a solid working middle-class community to now what has become kind of the poster child for American decay or divestment, we think that there are a lot of lessons and stories and narrative that have gotten lost,” he added.

Extreme stress in childhood is toxic to your DNA BY DANIEL R. WEINBERGER

The real danger of separating children from parents is not the psychological stress – it’s the biological time bomb. The screaming and crying, the anguish and desolation is gut-wrenching. But the fallout pales in comparison to the less visible long-term effects that are more sinister and dangerous. Separating children from their parents, in a strange land, among strangers, causes the most extreme life stress a child can experience. And it causes profound and irreversible changes in how their DNA is packaged and which genes are turned on and off in the cells of the body, in organs like the pancreas, the lungs, heart and brain – leading to lifelong changes in its structure and function. I am the director of the Lieber Institute for Brain Development and the Maltz Research Laboratories at the Johns Hopkins University School of

Medicine, where scientists study how genes and the environment shape the development of the human brain. Our studies and those of many other researchers around the world have shown that early life stress alters how DNA is packaged, which makes cells function differently than their original mandate. HOW DNA IS PACKAGED ALTERS ITS FUNCTION How DNA, the blueprint of life, is packaged in cells dictates how cells function. Virtually every cell in the body has the same DNA, as they are all descendants of that first fertilized egg. But a liver cell knows it’s not a lung cell, which knows it’s not a brain cell. The way the cells “know” has to do with how the DNA in cells is packaged, a process called “epigenetics.” DNA is organized in a complicated protein package, which

Daniel R. Weinberger

acts like insulation, protecting the DNA strand. This insulation determines which genes are activated to make the proteins required by a particular cell. Between the various tissues and organs, the packaging of DNA varies – like a liver cell versus a lung cell – allowing each cells to have a unique collection of proteins. Studies of children who have experienced major early childhood stress reveal that dysfunction in www.thechicagocitizen.com

many organs in the body years after the stressful event, raising the risk of heart disease, lung disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, poor school performance, drug abuse and mental illness. Scientists in the institute where I work have recently shown that the sensitivity of DNA packaging to environmental stress is greater during the first five years of life than all of the rest of life combined. Harry Harlow, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin, performed a controversial series of studies in the 1950s on infant monkeys that were isolated from their mothers for a few months – a similar situation to the period of separation experienced by young immigrant children at our borders, which is getting even longer in spite of the latest policy. Harlow’s infant monkeys became profoundly disturbed for the rest of their lives. When these monkeys reached

adulthood, studies revealed significant alterations in the structure and chemistry of their brains. Research in Romanian orphanages focusing on human children reared without parental support also show significant increases in the frequency of later life psychological and social disabilities as well as medical illnesses and changes in the anatomy of the brain. Perhaps the best-known research on this subject was with children raised in Romanian orphanages in the 1980s and 1990s. In their compelling book “Romania’s Abandoned Children: Deprivation, Brain Development, and the Struggle for Recovery,” Nathan Fox of the University of Maryland, Charles Nelson of Harvard and Charles Zeanah of Tulane document the devastating impact of institutions on infants who are deprived of Continued on page 5

Extreme stress in childhood is toxic to your DNA Continued from page 3 their parents’ emotional support. In addition to profound behavioral and intellectual problems, the brains of these children showed diminished growth a decade later. HOW STRESS TURNS CELLS FROM JEKYLL TO HYDE How does stress do these things? We know that stress causes a biological reaction in the body, including increasing the quantity of cortisol, the so-called “stress hormone.” But it also increases the production of several inflammationrelated proteins. In cases of infection, these inflammatory proteins are sentinels that help protect the body against infectious agents. But in the absence of infection, they can damage the host. They do this by getting into cells and changing the packaging of DNA. Forced separation from one’s parents especially in unfamiliar circumstances is an extreme form of childhood stress that causes stress

hormones to alter DNA packaging, transforming the behavior of the cell. Some of how the DNA is repackaged is permanent, and the cells involved go through life in an altered state, making them hypersusceptible to a myriad of other stresses and medical problems. Scientists know how dangerous toxic stress – severe, prolonged or repetitive adversity with a lack of the adequate adult support – is to children because they know how it damages and modifies the DNA in their cells. Now you know too. The longer the authorities fail to get these children reunited with their parents, the more responsible we are as a country for violating their DNA and causing a lifetime of psychological and physical disease. Daniel R. Weinberger is the Director of the Lieber Institute for Brain Development and Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry, Neurology, Neuroscience and The Institute of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins University

‘On Kentucky Avenue’ Back By Popular Demand NEW YORK - Historic Club Harlem will roar back to life as City College Center for the Arts (CCCA) presents a special three-week return engagement of On Kentucky Avenue: A Celebration of Atlantic City’s Famed Club Harlem at Aaron Davis Hall in New York going on now. The show, which thrilled audiences when it premiered at Aaron Davis Hall in 2016, offers viewers a glimpse inside the celebrated nightclub that was the center of nightlife in Atlantic City’s segregated Northside beginning in the 1930s. On Kentucky Avenue: A Celebration of Atlantic City’s Famed Club Harlem was created by Jeree Wade, written by Adam Wade and Ty Stephens, and is directed by Lee Summers. Hailed as “a party you don’t want to miss” by Broadway star Maurice Hines, On Kentucky Avenue transports audiences through time to the heyday of Club Harlem and offers them a fictional musical inspired by a real place: Kentucky Avenue, the center of African-American life in Atlantic City. Opened in 1935, Club Harlem quickly became the numberone destination for black performers in Atlantic City, presenting shows featuring jazz musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, and more. At its zenith—in the’40s, ’50s, and ’60s— the club played host to such legends as Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Sammy Davis Jr., Richard Pryor, Moms Mabley, Nancy Wilson, Dinah Washington, and the Temptations. Catering to integrated audiences when segregation was still the law of the land in the U.S., Club Harlem enjoyed popularity with white casino patrons as well as local blacks and whites and those sojourning from different parts of the East Coast to see the acclaimed acts. Club Harlem’s 5 a.m. shows featured world-renowned white entertainers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Jerry Lewis, who came to perform after their sets at nearby establishments. “We are very excited to bring On Kentucky Avenue back for New York audiences,” said City College Center for the Arts Managing Director Gregory Shanck. “It’s a work our patrons really connected with when it premiered here. There is also a true synergy of purpose between what Club Harlem was all about and what we aim to do here at Aaron Davis Hall—provide audiences with the opportunity to experience the work of great artists.” In this reimagined view of life On Kentucky Avenue, the setting is 1969, during dress rehearsal. A love triangle emerges between impresario Ivan King (Ty Stephens), his lead showgirl Betty Jo Stanton (N’Kenge) and her best friend the featured female vocalist, Pauline Pierce (Andricka Hall). (Ramona Dunlap performs the role of Pauline Pierce on Friday, July 27.) The revival introduces a

new character to audiences, Homer Paisley (Count Stovall), sure to entertain viewers even as he antagonizes Ivan and the Club Harlem performers. With this new arrival, they are forced to face a reality they hoped to avoid: In life everything must change and the last good times at Club Harlem are upon them. Creator Jeree Wade makes a special appearance as the only nonfictional character in the show, Damita Jo, a popular singer who often opened the summer entertainment season there. “We are thrilled to bring this new incarnation of On Kentucky Avenue to CCCA,” said creator-performer Wade. “I’ve been happy to see that the show resonates across different generations and we hope that theatergoers will attend with their family and friends. The music and story were inspired by a particular era that our elders will remember, but there is truly something for everyone.” The production also features Lee Summers as Slappy Black, a nod to reallife comedian Slappy White, who played the club. The ensemble includes Donna Clark, Mindy Haywood, Cassandra Palacio, Carmen Carriker, Avery Royal, Jamal Shuriah, Phillip Deceus and Brian Davis. Providing the musical soul each night is the Freddie Baxter Band: Richard Cummings Jr., as Freddie Baxter (piano/ conductor), Wilbur Bascomb as Odell Craft (bass), and David Silliman on drums, John F. Adams on synthesizer and Marvin Horne on guitar On Kentucky Avenue is produced by Adam Wade, with scenic design by Ty Stephens, Piero Ramos and Yvette Spellman, choreography by Ty Stephens, swing choreographer and tap consulting by Mickey Davidson, costume design by Pearl Williams and Ty Stephens and musical direction by Richard Cummings Jr. The musical features ’60s chart-topping music plus an original score true to the era by Ty Stephens, Frank Owens, Wilbur Bascomb, Branice McKenzie, Adam Wade and Jeree Wade. Performances are running now through July 28, Thursday and Fridays at 7 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on Saturdays. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at www. citycollegecenterforthearts.org or in person at the Aaron Davis Hall box office Tuesday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. Aaron Davis Hall is located on the campus of the City College of New York, at West 135th Street and Convent Avenue (129 Convent Avenue). For more details, visit the CCCA site or call the Aaron Davis Hall box office at (212) 650-6900. City College Center for the Arts can be followed on Twitter at @ccnyarts.

Parker (Kinky Boots, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Jelani Remy (Disney’s The Lion King), Max Sangerman (Blue Man Group Off-Broadway), and Alysha Umphress (On The Town, American Idiot). Featuring a wide-ranging catalog, from joyous anthems (“Saved”) to comedic romps (“Charlie Brown”) to songs of yearning (“I Who Have Nothing”), the storytelling aspect of Leiberand Stoller’s songwriting paired perfectly with the theatrical medium.

With soulful ballads rooted in blues, their songs celebrate the humor, passion, and heartbreak that infuse everyday lives. Classics such as “Neighborhood” and “Stand by Me” celebrated the power of community and friendship and deeply resonated with the African American community just as much as they did with rebellious suburban teenagers. Now, this classic show returns to NYC to thrill a new generation of theatergoers with its enduring themes and searing emotions.

Real Estate Director Brenda Johnson-Turner Wins Women of Color STEM Award WASHINGTON - Brenda Johnson-Turner, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters (USACE) real estate director, will receive a prestigious Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) industry honor: the Managerial Leadership-Government Award. Johnson-Turner was selected by the Women of Color STEM Conference award panel, sponsored by the Career Communications Group Inc. (CCG). CCG is a leader in workforce diversity, working with all types of companies to help support them in promoting multiculturalism and gender equity in STEM fields. The award will be presented in Detroit, October 13, 2018, at the 23rd Women of Color STEM Conference. According to Monica Emerson, National Chair of the 23rd Women of Color in STEM conference, “Ms. Brenda Johnson-Turner was selected because she is among an extraordinary group of forward-thinking STEM experts. This year the candidates were the strongest and represented the most diverse collection of executive professionals we have

had the pleasure of evaluating. From managers to vice presidents, this year’s Women of Color STEM candidates stand out as superior authorities in their respective fields.” Johnson-Turner oversees USACE’s $1 billion real estate portfolio, which encompasses nine divisions with 35 district offices that have active real estate missions, globally managing more than 25 million acres of real property. USACE’s real estate professionals actively engage in the agency’s

STEM recruitment activities with its nearly 100 higher education institution partners. USACE emphasizes recruitment at historically black colleges and universities, minority serving institutions, colleges of engineering, and university physical and computer science programs. USACE also encourages its R&D center to maximize use of innovative programs for student interns, which include Educational Partnership Agreements, Pathways Internships,

and Technical Services for Contract Students Agreements. USACE has put programs and policies in place to enable its divisions, districts and R&D center to maximize use of Direct Hire Authorities and Expedited Hire Authorities in bringing onboard student and recent graduate STEM talent. In 2017, women held a quarter of the more than five million tech jobs, and the percentage of women of color – particularly black and Hispanic – in the industry stands at single digits. Additionally, only half of STEM graduates pursue careers in their educational paths. “Supporting all women to reach their dreams is an important focus area for me. Encouraging young minority women to pursue their interests in STEM fields, where there is under representation can make a difference, and is both professionally and personally rewarding,” said Johnson-Turner. “It is a privilege to work for an organization that values inclusion, and an honor to be recognized as a leader for progressive change in the workplace.”

Summer Skincare Myth Busting Tips: What You Need to Know! Summer is here, making it the best time to discuss how you’ll take care of your skin during the warmer season. There are many misconceptions around the best ways to transition your skincare routine come summertime. For this reason, Vaseline Dermatologist Partner Dr. Brooke Jackson has the scoop on her top myth-busting summer skin care tips. 1. “You don’t need to change your skin care routine in the summer.” Change your skin care as you do your wardrobe. Our skin is more prone to oiliness during the summer months because of the humidity, so the ultra-hydrating products we use in the winter are not necessary because you are producing your own moisturizer. I recommend the following: • Start with a cleanser that carries a degreasing effect – using this at night will help remove all the sweat and dirt built up from the day that clogs pores. • As for moisturizers, night creams aren’t totally necessary. But if this is a beauty must for you, go with a light serum that won’t clog your pores. • For the rest of your body, go with a lightweight lotion like Vaseline® Intensive CareTM Aloe Soothe, made with healing Vaseline® Jelly to deeply moisturize dry skin and absorb fast without feeling greasy.

World’s first AI-powered motion tracking fitness app turns your iPhone into a personal trainer A new fitness app has launched which uses the world’s first AIpowered motion tracking technology to transform your iPhone into a virtual personal trainer who offers real-time feedback and helps you achieve the perfect squat. Free to download, the Perfect Squat Challenge app has been developed by leading digital therapy company Kaia Health in conjunction with physiotherapists and sport scientists to define a squat that a wide population can achieve. Once the app is opened, users are greeted by Kaia, a virtual personal trainer, who guides them through the exercises. Users place their iPhone upright on a table or against a wall then step back approximately 7 feet until their body becomes visible on the phone’s screen. The app then tracks 16 key points on the body using the phone’s camera stream. This contrasts your observed pose with the ‘ideal’ predefined pose, and compares metrics including the relative positions of limbs and joints, and the angles between

them. During the exercise Kaia offers actionable, real-time audio feedback and video instructions which encourage users to achieve as many correct squats as possible, thereby offering the skills of a personal trainer at your fingertips in the comfort of your home. The app currently focuses on perfecting squats but the patentpending technology that underpins it is set to transform the world of fitness and physiotherapy by allowing personal trainers, sports scientists and physiotherapists to define an infinite number of correct exercises. Later this year, Kaia Health will integrate this technology into its various medical device apps including their ‘Kaia Back Pain Relief at Home’ app, a clinically-proven therapy app for nonspecific back pain, and ‘Kaia COPD Therapy’ app which helps to relieve the symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The technology will help to treat patients, monitor trends in the progression of a

disease or condition, and personalise therapy - and this will create best-inclass digital multimodal therapy for patients. Widely considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs as well as developing core strength, the squat is a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the thighs, hips and buttocks, quadriceps femoris muscle and hamstrings - as well as strengthening the bones, ligaments and insertion of the tendons throughout the lower body. If you prefer training with others www.thechicagocitizen.com

the Perfect Squat Challenge online community will help to motivate you. The app encourages users to compete and challenge friends on social media by sharing a personalised link featuring the number of correct repetitions. This allows users to have their high score feature in a leaderboard during exercise for added motivation. Maximilian Strobel, Head of Kaia Health’s AI Lab says: “Breakthroughs in AI-powered motion tracking and correction technology means that everyone now has access to a virtual personal trainer and physiotherapist on their iPhone - and can perfect exercises

such as the squat. In the future, this technology will integrate within our medical device apps for diseases and conditions such as back pain creating a scalable, cost-effective therapeutic tool. This democratises access to highquality, bespoke fitness, rehabilitation and physiotherapy - and could reduce the burden on health services.” The Perfect Squat Challenge app is free and available for download on every iPad and iPhone released after 2015. Visit www.kaia-health. com/PerfectSquatChallenge. #PerfectSquatChallenge to download the app.

ENTERTAINING

Cool Summer Entertaining Tips to Keep Guests Happy (StatePoint) H o s t i n g friends and family for backyard barbecues, picnics and garden parties during summer carries its own challenges. Here are a few tips guaranteed to keep your guests cool, comfortable and happy when you entertain. • Create Shade: Entertaining outdoors? Remember, not all guests are going to want direct sunlight for too long. Take into consideration the sun’s position in the sky during the hours you will be hosting, ensuring your seating offers guests the option to sit in the shade. Create DIY shades by hanging curtains or fabric around or above your party location. • Protect Guests: Protect your guests from getting bitten and burned in your garden or yard. Be sure the space is clear of standing water in advance of the party. Also, create a small station with bug spray and sunscreen (kids’ varieties, too, if you’re hosting families). Keep it away from the areas where the food and drinks are being served. Consider adding citronella candles or tiki posts as an additional strategy for warding off mosquitoes and other insects. • Be Creative with Cold Drinks: Nothing is more evocative of summer than a cold glass of iced tea. Create an iced tea bar that includes several varieties to suit your guests’ different tastes. Serve varieties like sweet tea, no calorie tea, tea mixed with lemonade, and peach tea. Label each clearly with small chalk boards or calligraphy name cards. Offer guests ready to drink teas made with high-quality, fresh, natural ingredients, such as Milo’s. They fresh brew all of their teas and do not add any extra “stuff” like colors, acids or preservatives. A handy trick to keep beverages undiluted and impress your guests as things heat up? Create ice cubes out of Milo’s Tea in advance, then use those to cool down drinks. For recipe ideas, visit drinkmilos.com. • Serve Cool Snacks: You may have the grill going, but you can keep things otherwise cool and light with snacks and sides like crudité, dips, pasta salad, fresh fruit skewers and cold finger foods, like tea sandwiches. • Play Games: Take full advantage of your yard this outdoor entertaining season with a few simple, fun lawn games like cornhole, horseshoes and ladder toss. Want to make things more interesting? Create an elimination bracket and tournament for each game. From refreshing drinks to fun and

games, you can make the most of the summer with a few cool strategies. PHOTO SOURCE: (c) Jennifer Hagler
