Neighborhood watch Here are five that we found interesting. There’s no typical Carmel neighborhood. That’s what we discovered when Current in Carmel set out to find unusual or special neighborhoods in the city. Here are the five we chose to feature, for absolutely subjec-

Cool Creek Estates When Fiona O’Connor and her husband were looking to move their family to Carmel, he found the perfect home on the Internet. It was in Cool Creek Estates, an older neighborhood with lots of beautiful trees. It was a real homecoming for Fiona O’Connor, who grew up in Cool Creek Estates, which is north of 126th Street just east of Keystone Avenue. Her parents live one street away. And the name isn’t just the figment of some builder’s imagination – Cool Creek actually runs through the area. The woods and water attract wildlife, such as foxes and owls, O’Connor says. It’s a family-oriented neighborhood, which has a Fourth of July parade, Easter egg hunt and Christmas decorating contests.


Three to four of the 215 homes are for sale at any given time. “We still have some original homeowners,” she said. Prices range from $175,000 to $335,000.

Thornhurst Addition This small addition, consisting of one road and a small cul-de-sac features homes designed by Avriel Shull, a Carmel resident and architect. The California-style ranches were unlike the other homes being built in Carmel in the 1950s and ’60s. Shull also was a builder and an interior decorator. Turnover is slow in the neighborhood. The last house sold for $175,000 in 2004. Thornhurst Addition is located north of Main Street and east of Guilford Road. The city and Carmel Clay Historical

Society have had discussions about getting the neighborhood of about two dozen homes on the National Historic Register.

Old Town/Arts & Design District After her older daughter went to college, Judy Erner and her younger daughter were left with too large a home, so the family moved to Old Town in 1995. Old Town offered Erner, events manager at the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau, what she needed – an affordable home (prices are in the low $100,000s) in the Carmel School District. Other perks of the area include the Monon Trail and shops and restaurants of the Arts & Design District. Another housing choice are the new condos on Main Street, such as the Carmel Arts Residences and Monon & Main. Condo prices are $200,000 up to $800,000. – Compiled by Liz Juranek and Jim Lindgren.

Attracting not only joggers and bikers, but a multitude of wildlife not often seen in the Indianapolis area, Estancia is a neighborhood of just seven homes off 106th Street and Spring Mill Road. The houses, which sit on five acres or more, are situated near Williams Creek and a wooded area. Coyotes, foxes and turkey vultures are some of the animals seen, Estancia Neighborhood Association President Janet Nine said. There is a half-mile drive to get into the non-gated neighborhood, which about 30 years ago used to be an airstrip. “When I was first shown the neighborhood, I thought, ‘Good God, where am I going?’ ” Nine said. But the narrow, tree-lined road is “quite lovely,” she said. She said the architecture is “all over the place,” describing her home as “pseudo Tudor” while the home adjacent to hers is “probably the most glorious home in the neighborhood,” designed after an English manor. However, despite the large homes and secluded area, the English manor was recently listed for $3.4 million, but sold for $2.4 million because of “the sensitive market and overbuilding,” Nine said. “These homes don’t have

The entry to Estancia . big theater rooms and wine cellars,” she said. However, she said they are well-constructed and the large amount of land dwarfs the “postage stamp” size lots of newer developments which sell for similar prices. Estancia homes are “lovely but not ostentatious,” Nine said.

Rosemeade Commons Sixteen turn-of-thecentury-style homes line a cul-de-sac in the Rosemeade Commons neighborhood. Homeowners Association President John Sommerkamp said the neighborhood is active and friendly. “It’s the first place I ever lived where I knew everybody,” Sommerkamp said. “It’s as close-knit a neighborhood as you can get. We talk all the time, and there are social gatherings a couple times a year.” He attributes this to the sidewalks and porches that encourage people to go outside and talk. An architectural committee and the homeowners association must approve exterior changes, so the homes keep the Victorian appearance. Most of the homes were built about 10 years

ago; Sommerkamp moved to the neighborhood in 1999. The look of the neighborhood drew him to it, as did it being within walking distance to downtown Carmel and now the Monon Trail and Monon Center. The houses average 3,800 to 4,000 square feet, and most run in the $450,000 to $650,000 price range. The unique appearance attracts buyers, and homes are sold less than a month after being on the market, Sommerkamp said.

OUR TAKES It is our position that the city’s decision to pursue a Special Census was a good one. It turns out that the $1 million invested to account for all the citizens of our growing community has generated a threeand-a-half-times return. With the completion of the year 2000 Census, Carmel boasted a population of 37,733. Annexations have brought another 13,000 or so to the mix since then. But at the conclusion of this Special Census, our rolls are up to 68,653 – exceeding the estimates from the mayor’s office of 65,000. Excluding numbers gained in annexation, that number pushes our city’s population growth

just above an astonishing 16 percent since 2000. When the mayor took the risk of financing the Special Census, most agreed that we’d see some increases – perhaps even enough to cover the cost of the new count. But the surprisingly strong numbers reflect the vibrancy of our community. Carmel will receive another $3.5 million back in tax dollars we were previously giving to the state for use in other communities. With the expected annexation of Southwest Clay Township (estimated between 12,000 and 10,000), our community could top 80,000.

BRING THE MONEY HOME It is our position that the Carmel Clay Schools and Carmel Police Department are to be lauded for their good work in securing a matching federal government grant of nearly $200,000 for the installation and upgrade of digital video security equipment in all of our schools. Indiana remains a “donor” state. That means we pay our taxes to the federal government so it can turn around and prop up the failing and ineffective governments in other states – think the city of New Orleans and Boston’s Big Dig. We’d prefer that Massachusetts would lease its own toll road to pay for the

most expensive single road project in U.S. history, but Ted Kennedy thought that hard-earned Hoosier dollars would be easier. While we argue that federal tax cuts would be even better than federal grants, anything that can be done to keep our cash home is a good thing. But given the unlikeliness of any federal tax cuts in the current political environment in Washington, we are all for Hoosiers working to keep our dollars at home. Moreover, officials are on target to use the best and most current technologies to keep our kids and their schools safe.

The column, “There Aren’t That Many Atheists” by Bob Walters in a recent issue of Current in Carmel (10/2/2007) is so full of misinformation that it is hard to know where to begin. Nearly all scientific discoveries and social reforms throughout history have been initiated and led by “freethinkers.” These are persons who do not accept the doctrine of organized religion or the prevailing opinions and theories of their day whether in physics as with Einstein, in government as with Madison and Jefferson, or religion. Among the members of the National Academy of Sciences and Nobel Laureates, over 90 percent do not believed in a deity. Freethinkers demand evidence and hold religion to the same scrutiny and standard of evidence as they do any other idea or opinion that is advanced. Consequently, they are atheists, agnostics, or at the very minimum, deists who do not believe in a personal God who answers prayers and certainly do not adhere to the doctrine of any organized religion. For readers who want to explore this topic more, I suggest they go to to find a very long list of freethinkers who have made great contributions throughout history. Reba Boyd Wooden Executive Director Center For Inquiry Indiana NEED FOR DISCLAIMER Editor: RE: Elly DeLong’s letter (10/9/2007) I think she is mistaken to think that you “disagree” with Bob Walters’ opinions. I realize that you are only saying that his ideas are not the official editorial stance of your publication. On other topics, your variety of columnists presents a balance, but as far as religion is concerned, you have only the one columnist, Mr. Walters. This accounts for the necessity for the disclaimer. Your disclaimer is therefore the correct thing to do, in my opinion. I have a suggestion, for what it’s worth. I recall Bruce Braden’s letter in the August 28th issue of Current. It was an informative and interesting commentary on a religious topic. Mr. Braden must be a serious student of religions, especially the Judeo-Christian religion. I would like to see a regular column by Bruce Braden. It would provide a balance between his rational discussion of religion and Bob Walters’ fundamentalist sermons. Then you could put disclaimers on both or neither. It would reinforce your journalistic neutrality. Glen E. Jensen 46032 SAYING I’M SORRY Editor: It was with great surprise that I read the letter to the editor (10/9/2007) by Bruce Calabrese regarding my column the previous week titled Saying “I’m Sorry” Is Not Easy Sometimes. I have now learned that reading words about oneself that are negative and very personal is also not easy. However, I respect

Bruce’s right to express his viewpoint. I would like to respond to the specific paragraph of his letter that implies that I did not respect the opinions of his wife and she felt degraded and insulted by me. In the spirit of my original column, Cecilia Calabrese, please accept my apology. I am sorry. Jeff Worrell 46033 PRICE OF PROGRESS Editor: Why does Carmel need a change? I believe that Carmel has grown into a beautiful place to live, but at what price? When most of the city’s debt comes due around the year 2011, what will our taxes do at that point? Recently at a Carmel City Council meeting, I heard the District 1 Councilman announce that the council is only responsible for the corporate/city component of our tax bill. Really? Then what was the Monon Center? When the council approved the Monon Center’s $55 million bond it was understood that taxes would increase $50 per every $100,000 of assessed valuation. This is part of our township component. Certainly this was an oversight by this councilman. I find that Carmel needs a change on the council. Not people to change Carmel’s path, but people who truly want Carmel to grow responsibly. We can pay down the debt we have now, then move forward with our plans. What is the rush? What happened to good old conservative politics? I encourage everyone to get out and vote on Nov. 6, 2007. Anne Slamkowski Independent Candidate District 1, Carmel City Council REASONABLE GROWTH Editor: Density. For months I have been talking to local residents about what it means and what effect it could and would have one day on our quality of life. On Oct. 8 the Carmel Clay School Board conducted a hearing on redistricting. Why? Simply because our schools have become overcrowded. With the growth explosion in Carmel comes various side-effects, one of which is increased population and the necessary ancillary services required to support the people. However, so long as the Carmel Council sees fit to go along with developers and approve zoning variances for multi-family housing, then the ultimate effect will result in more people in a compacted area. This creates a denser population thus creating situations leading to increased traffic and, of course, an increase in the number of children attending school, which then ultimately leads to overcrowded classrooms and overworked teachers. Let’s continue to have development in Carmel, but let’s plan for sound, practical and reasonable growth so that we can provide adequate services necessary for our day-to-day well-being. Sarann Warner Democratic Candidate District 1, Carmel City Council

FROM THE BACKSHOP WISHES FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY First of all, the entire staff of Current in Carmel wishes Annie Greenberg a quick recovery; we miss seeing your smiling face at the office. *** With the elections looming, we have begun Q&As with the candidates for City Council and mayor. We hope these charts are a good start in getting to know those who wish to help lead your city into the future. As we all know, Carmel faces several issues such as growth, spending and the Keystone Avenue project, to name a few. It’s important that we learn everything we can about the candidates and their positions on the issues. And, most of all, please exercise your right to vote. *** Hey, Marion County, hang in there, just 21 more days until you can fire “Band-Aid” Bart Peterson. *** Be sure to check out the Fall into the District event on Saturday, Oct.


Wanna write us a letter? You can do it a couple ways. The easiest is to e-mail it to The old-fashioned way is to snail mail it SIGNS OF THE TIMES Editor: As a candidate for the City Council on Nov. 8, I’d like to make a comment or two about the plight of a candidate. The phrase “damned if you do and damned if you don’t” is quite apt. Most people who run for public office in Carmel either spend their own money or that of friends and business associates who donate to their campaigns. To send out just one mailer to every registered voter in a district costs approximately $1,500 (design, printing and postage). If you’re running city-wide, multiply that by five. Wow! A lot of money to throw that flier in the trash. So the most cost-effective way to get your name out to the public is signs, those colorful little placards on lawns and along roads appearing regularly before May and November elections. It’s the timing, as well as the placement, that is at issue. We all know a sign in front of a citizen’s home is best, especially if they live

Hard to place, hence the temptation to cluster in public space. Then there is the question of when to put them out? Too early and the people get annoyed. Left later and people begin to complain that, “No one is running very hard.” So, I would like to offer a small thought about our democratic process. It is good for our form of government to have active participation. Citizens should be encouraged to run for office (notice I said “run,” not just put your name on the ballot and neither participate or learn). So when your neighbor throws his, or her, hat into the ring, celebrate the strength of our democracy, the variety of our choices and allow these “signs of democracy” to flourish freely for three weeks before an election, as long as they all disappear within 48 hours after.

In fact, the knowledge that you’re forever done with babies (and hormonal pregnant wives, nighttime feedings, and breast milk) may actually enhance your sex life! Fifteen minutes later, my valiant knight emerges looking slightly pale and a little glassy-eyed. “Well?” I ask, our baby now fast asleep in my arms. “Success,” he squeaks, collapsing into the nearest chair. “We won’t be contributing to the overpopulation problem anymore.” He’s turned an unpleasant shade of green. “I need a beer and a bag of frozen peas, stat.” The point is, it’s much easier and cheaper for you to get a vasectomy than for your wife to have her tubes tied, or God forbid, be on the pill until menopause. So get over your fears, put on a brave face, and call that urologist. You’ll join an elite club of men who have survived their worst nightmare and lived to tell big fat lies about it. ( You’re men, you can’t help yourselves.) And even I’ll admit that there are few things funnier than scaring the bejeesus out of a guy facing the Great Snip. Peace out!

My husband is led into a stuffy office to discuss “the procedure” with a so-called “doctor” he’s never met. How can he entrust his most prized possessions to someone nicknamed “the butcher”? But before he can really ponder this, he finds himself flat on his back, halfnaked, with smoke rising from his nether-regions. “Is something on fire?” he asks. “Of course it is, son,” the masked man replies with a big Texas drawl, “But don’t you worry, I haven’t lost one yet!

What do you believe Carmel will look like in five to 10 years?

How can you help improve the quality of life for Carmel residents?

If there were something you could change about Carmel, what would it be?

Managing growth as the city moves into the future. As a member of the council, I will objectively analyze issues by looking at more than a piece of paper. I will push for full public disclosure so citizens can be involved in the process. I will look at actions in the macro sense to ensure that our infrastructure can support our growth, and that we have revenue streams to pay for it.

A thriving, fiscally responsible, residential city with great schools, low taxes, little congestion, and an infrastructure that supports both residents and businesses.

I can improve the quality of life of Carmel residents by representing their interests on the city council, rather than other politicians or interests. This is why we call representative government.

I would like to see a larger percentage of the population vote. Many brave men and women have given their lives to defend our country and our right to vote. Therefore, I encourage all registered voter to exercise that right on Nov. 6.

The city has taken over Keystone and is considering an enormous renovation project. The state is planning to turn Meridian into an interstate. These projects can be complementary, or they could conflict and bring Carmel to a grinding halt. The manner in which those projects proceed will mean a great deal to the survival of our local businesses and the tax revenue they generate, and the quality of life of our residents.

I was born and raised in Carmel, and I am proud to have chosen to return to raise my family here. I believe in progress and sustainable growth. Carmel is bigger than ever, and if we maintain our infrastructure and carefully manage our debt we will continue to attract residents and businesses. With careful stewardship, Carmel will remain the destination city for business and families.

By assuring them that the city is answering to them, rather than one person or one party. With one-party rule we can never really be confident that we are hearing truth, hashed out in open debate, not rubber-stamped by private agreement. Furthermore, my interest is not short-term. My husband and I are business owners and will raise our children here. Decisions made today will affect my family for decades.

Our debt is nearly $400 million dollars. It is a debt we can sustain when times are good, and if we can trust the projections and promises all coming from the same people. We need independent, professional financial managers on the council, who will ensure that our debt level does not rise beyond our capacity to pay for it. We need to objectively review future projects and ensure return on taxpayer investment.

What is the most important issue facing Carmel today?

Geri Piedmonte (D) District 4

What is the most important issue facing Carmel today? The most important issue facing Carmel today is the city’s debt. It is one thing having “a little debt,” but quite another having a large anticipated debt! We need to pay down on what we have now before we start spending again. There is nothing wrong with the mayor’s vision for Carmel. It is the rate at which it appears he wants it done that I am hearing from the community that they are objecting.

What do you believe Carmel will look like in five to 10 years?

How can you help improve the quality of life for Carmel residents?

If there were something you could change about Carmel, what would it be?

I believe Carmel in five years will continue to be a thriving, vibrant community. In 10 years, may I have a crystal ball, anyone?

Not everyone in our community earns the $75,000 average income that has been reported. We need to talk to those members of our community who do not earn that amount. I suspect they would say more affordable rental housing. Last I checked, a decent and safe rental community costs above what I would expect an average person starting out could pay!

If there were something I could change in Carmel it is the thought “newer is better.” I like the quaintness of Main Street, which our mayor has striven to preserve. City Center? I’d have to give it more scrutiny before I could give an answer.

I said (Oct. 2) Nowhere in the Bible does it say Bob Walters that “Lazy faith creates … doubt that “happy” is a fulfillment of anySpirituality and guilt.” It often takes as much thing. It’s a reaction to God’s gifts. work to not believe as it does to Being happy within yourself is not believe. Plenty of hard workers do not believe unusual, but nothing in Scripture leads me to in God, and plenty of folks in church don’t do think happiness is God’s or our purpose in much else for God but attend church.

but I believe everything happens for a reason. Maybe this gives us an opportunity to spend quality time with our children. Or it’s a chance to communicate with them on a level that focuses on our unconditional commitment to their well being. Having dinner together at a reasonable hour can be a welcome change. We, nor our children, are defined by comparison. We are defined by the “path of contentment” we choose to take for ourselves and our families. A habit of comparison can lead us to dissatisfaction with everything we own and everybody we love, and offers our children excuses to compare themselves against others. Whatever the circumstances are, they are not to be compared to anyone or anything. The lessons to be learned may not be recognizable today, but trust me when I tell you that they will be immeasurable down the “road to contentment.” When our young men and woman see us handle adversity and disheartening events with acceptance and gratitude, we will have defined ourselves to our children so they will learn to accept and be grateful for a quality of life that far outweighs the score. Our role is to help our children discover their path to contentment already defined for them in the

he agony of defeat! Very little can compare to the sinking feeling of a parent agonizing over their child’s competitive loss. It’s the end a season with promise, potential and perseverance; a season hopeful of reaching the equivalent of what the game’s highest honor offers; an elusive victory that vanishes with the blowing of the final whistle to end the game and any chance of recovery. What’s a parent to say or do to ease the heartache? One thing Becky Kapsalis we don’t want to do is Ask YiaYia – look back and make comparisons. I once read that “comparison is the death of contentment.” When we say to ourselves “if only,” these statements can lead us down a dangerous path. If only the clock didn’t run out. If only we had more time. If only we could play them again. Fortunately, our lives are not defined by the win-loss record of a season or 100 seasons. God defines our lives and He makes no comparisons. We may feel disheartened over,

oday’s youth are growing up digital. Current students from kindergarten to college have grown up digital. Meaning simply, the life-changing technology that abounds today is more natural for this group than older generations — a relatively loose term considering it would apply to anyone older than 30. Called “digital natives” this younger audience is totally comfortable with technology since it was always part of their culture. Compare them to “digital immigrants,” who grew up in an “analog” world. In a world where second-graders use PowerPoint to deliver David Cain On Marketing a program with embedded graphics and smooth slide transitions, it’s a tough time to be an immigrant. Small children now have laptops and cell phones. They spend countless hours in social communities, like Webkinz World — a world where you “adopt” a virtual version of a stuffed animal — instead of playing outside. In this new world, boys will spend more time gaming than watching television. Text and

Say “hello” to the new playroom.

instant-messaging are commonplace for those younger than 30, while older generations can’t even seem to work the keypad of their phone to send a “text” or understand how to set up their instant messenger account. As digital natives continue to take a larger stake in the business world, the fundamental shift will continue. There is no going back. Digital is the future, and for those that didn’t grow up digital, you will always be an immigrant. Digital natives generally view communications with a pull strategy as most effective. A pull strategy is one where the information is so compelling that the user “pulls” it to them. Push marketing strategies are those that push information to users. Although considered less


effective for digital natives, it does have merit for digital immigrants. This audience generally prefers to have information fed to them versus having to search for it. And when it comes to marketing, businesses must consider their audience. Don’t always assume that how you want to distribute information is how the customer wants their information packaged. Keep in mind, no matter how hard you try, if you are an immigrant there is no process for you to become a citizen of the digital world — so consider taking some advice from the natives.

EAT MEAT: In a recent Australian study, people with high blood pressure who replaced 8 percent of their daily calories from bread, cereal, potatoes, or pasta with lean red meat experienced a four-point drop in their systolic blood pressure in just 8 weeks. Arginine, an amino acid in red meat, may help dilate blood vessels, lowering blood pressure. Plus, limiting starches lowers blood sugar and makes your body more efficient at burning fat. —

KILL FREE RADICALS: Free radicals attack healthy pigment cells, resulting in dark patches. Green tea has been praised as one of the most powerful antioxidants, neutralizing the offenders and preventing their aging effects. But others might be better: CoffeeBerry is a fruit that absorbs about 50 percent more free radicals than green tea. “It has the ability to repair similar to a retinoid,” says David McDaniel, assistant professor of clinical dermatology and plastic surgery at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Others that are proving powerful: blue ginger and bearberry. Apply twice daily; top with sunscreen in the morning to seal in the ingredients and prevent the sun from reversing your efforts. —

SWITCH TO SOCCER: Soccer works off more fat and builds up more muscle than jogging, new research shows. After 12 weeks, Danish scientists found that the body fat percentage in the soccer players dropped by 3.7 percent, compared to 2 percent for the joggers, and that soccer players increased their muscle mass by almost 4.5 pounds, whereas the joggers didn’t have any significant change. The soccer players also felt less tired after exercising than the joggers because they were having more fun. —


uch like New Year’s Eve and alcohol, all hallows eve is validation to overindulge in sugar/glucose. They are holidays that our pancreas dreads and cancer celebrates. For Halloween this year, I thought I’d dress as a distressed pancreas and raise money for the American Diabetes Society. Most kids said they get at least 50 pieces of candy, with 44 percent saying they get more than 100 pieces. Nearly all of us are addicted to sugar. Many American kids start consuming too much added sugar and fats almost as soon as they start eating solid Wendell Fowler food. Mom and Dad, pay attention. If you’ve ever eaten too much Halloween candy as a child, you probably remember the “ooky” feeling in your stomach. You’ve OD’d and abused your pancreas. If you have sugar binges on a regular basis, regardless of your activity level, the high sugar levels will contribute to dangerous complications, lead to an increase in insulin resistance and can deteriorate into diabetes.

BE INCLINED TO WALK: Carrying extra pounds makes running harder and increases your risk of overuse injuries, particularly to the knees. But a study in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that an uphill grade of just 3 degrees reduces leg shock by 24 percent. Men’s Health contributing editor Michael Mejia intensifies treadmill workouts by incline, not speed. “It not only eases the stress on your knees, but also increases the involvement of your hips and hamstrings, which quickly elevates heart rate and calorie burn,” says Mejia. Warm up, then increase the belt speed to 4 mph for 3 minutes. That’s enough for a fast walk. (Most people don’t need to break into a run on a flat surface until at least 4.5 mph.) Maintain that speed for the duration of the workout and simply adjust the incline. You’ll notice that the session grows more difficult as you progress, so be prepared to push harder as you go. — PLANT-BASED TREATMENTS: Chris Kilham, an ethnobotanist at the University of IMPROVE THOSE ABS: Stand tall.

GOODBYE, FACEBOOK? Are social networking sites like Facebook already passé? Tariq Krim, the founder of Netvibes, believes that in the not-so-distant future, Web users will enter the Web in new ways. Rather than using a highly formatted social networking site, they’ll have a landing page where they’ve assembled all of their favorite sites in small page-on-a-page boxes, or widgets. —

older programs are generally incapable of reading them, so users who have Office 2007 need to be aware of this problem. If you are a user of Office 2007 and you want to send a file to someone who may not have the same version, you should save the file using the older file format under the “save as” function. Or you might as well change the default file format back to the Word 97-2003 (*.doc) format. To do this, open Microsoft Word 2007 and click on the “Office Button” (top left of your screen). Then on the bottom of the list click “Word Options.” When the “Word Options” window opens, click on “Save” in the left panel. Change the top option (in the right panel) “save files in this format” from “Word Document (*.docx)” to “Word 97-2003 Document (*.doc),” then click on OK to complete the setup. (Follow the same steps for Excel and Power Point.) If you are on the receiving end of these

new documents, you have a couple of options. The first would be to tell senders to make their documents compatible with the rest of the world. The other option is to download the file conversion utility from Microsoft so that users of older Office suites can convert the new files without having to “return to sender.” NOTE: in order for this file conversion utility to be installed, you must have the latest service pack for your version of Office, so you may want to go to http://office. and click on the “Check for Updates” button at the top right corner of the site. For the complete installation details and the link to download the “Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack,” go to http://support.

HEALTHY CLOTHING: The approach of flu season sends many people scurrying for vaccinations and vitamins. But what if you could avoid the flu and other viruses simply by getting dressed? A two-tone gold dress and metallic jacket designed by Olivia Ong, a senior design major at Cornell University, contain a sprinkling of nanoparticles intended to protect the wearers of these garments from invisible threats to their health. The upper part of the dress is made from cotton coated with silver nanoparticles that deactivate bacteria and viruses. The jacket’s hood, sleeves and pockets contain palladium nanoparticles that act like tiny catalytic converters to break down harmful components of air pollution.


have Office 2003 and can’t open any files that are sent to me using Office 2007.” Does this sound familiar? The folks at Microsoft decided to “move the ball forward” when they created the latest version of Office 2007 and used XML based file formats. (Some analysts speculate it was also a move to make open source free productivity suites such as Open Office incompatible). XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language, which is more capable of integrating with the Internet and various databases. Microsoft claims this new file format Gary Hubbard is more compact Technology (which means more information will fit in smaller file sizes), better able to be recovered from file corruption, provides better privacy for shared files and more interoperability with other data systems. The new file formats are easy to identify because they have an “x” at the end of the traditional file extensions (docx for Word, xlsx for Excel and pptx for Power Point).

By Larry Greene, Case Handyman & Remodeling Question: I see a trend toward stone and brick being used on the interior of homes. What materials are available? What are some creative ways to use brick or stone when we finish our basement? Answer: Twenty years ago, builders would use full-size stone or brick on the interior of a home. This is labor intensive and requires structural support because of the weight of the material. Today the market has moved away from real stone and brick to using architectural stone veneers and thin-brick. These are artificial products that look like real stone or brick but are much lighter, which allows easier installation. 1. Which product to use? • Thin-brick: Thin-brick looks exactly like real brick, but it’s only about a halfinch thick. It is realistic looking, and is available in “weathered” styles where it is “tumbled” during manufacturing to look 50 to 100 years old. The pieces of thin-brick come in flats or corners. • Cultured stone: Cultured stone is artificial and comes in a variety colors and styles, ranging from a smooth river rock to various kinds of natural stone. Cultured stone is typically 1 ½- to 2-inches thick with a flat backside.

2. Where to install? Think about your design theme. While stone and brick accents add character, too much will create a “cold” feeling in the basement. Some common uses in a basement are: • Fireplace wall or surround: Consider adding stone or brick to the wall surrounding a fireplace. This can range from covering the entire wall, to just installing around the fireplace as a surround. • Columns and beams: Wrapping a column or beam adds a nice architectural touch without overpowering the room with too much of the stone/brick look. • Wet bars: Install the stone/brick on the front of the bar or enhance the backsplash under your wall cabinets. 3. Interior installation issues: Architectural stone/brick veneers are typically installed by either a mason or tile setter. The individual pieces are installed with mortar joints to provide a realistic look. Another option is “dry-stack” installation without mortar joints. Make sure your installer uses the proper type of underlayment, as these materials cannot be installed directly over drywall.

TONE THAT FACE: Yoga instructor and author Annelise Hagen teaches several facial exercises designed to stretch and tone facial muscles. Hagen recently released a book, “The Yoga Face: Eliminate Wrinkles with the Ultimate Natural Facelift.” She said she developed a workshop using facial yoga because women wanted to look their best, “but they weren’t really thinking about how to exercise their facial muscles.” She said facial muscles become weak and flabby and need regular workouts and circulation to reduce wrinkles. —

• OUT — Upholstery patterns — especially big florals, • IN — Aside from the trend toward neutral solid-colored

shades or tight patterns in upholstery, furniture styles range more widely than they have in years past. Mission and Arts & Crafts designs remain popular, as do Art Nouveau and Modern, but lately there’s been a significant uptick in Mid-Century retro designs. Many designers encourage an eclectic approach, combining different styles in the same setting. In fact, over- coordination, in both color scheme and era can make a room banal and sterile.

With the trend toward neutral shades, a colorful area rug can help make a room pop, whether it’s an antique oriental, handcrafted artisan wool or modern geometric.

WEDDING CAKE FUN: Why should invitations have all the fun? A letterpress-style design is a trendy way to show off your gown’s ornate embroidery, your invitation’s floral design, or even your chosen china pattern.

It works best with detailed designs, adding an elegant dimension. — RAINING MONEY? $700 for an umbrella?

ll that glitters was not just gold at the 2007 High Point Fall Home Furnishing Show. The show, Oct. 1-9 in High Point, N.C., was illuminated with crystal, mirrored furnishings, polished nickel lamps and luminescent glass mosaic. Colors seem to be cleaner with layers of shine. Elegance was a design thread that could not be ignored. Furnishings with a French influence of grace and grandeur were abundant. Crystals that were formerly found in opulent chandeliers were found adorning pillows, suspended from candlesticks Vicky Earley and embedded in Decor mirror frames. It was a welcome return to a celebration of beauty for the sake of beauty. Modern furnishings took a divided stand. Some of the contemporary exhibits were spin-offs from the age of technology. These home furnishings offered sleek lines in blacks and whites accented with crisp greens and magentas. The other modern camp saluted the

opulent Golden Age of Hollywood and was alive with glitz and glamour. The sparkle that illuminated contemporary showrooms strayed into traditional exhibits, as well. Nickel danced with gold, while silver was paired with antique bronze. The combinations were a delightful stretch of all the rules about mixing metals. Some of the most interesting pieces were the ones that refused to be classified. Mirrored consoles were seen in opulent European design showrooms as well as the sleek moderns. Metallics will reign for 2008, with accents in silver, bronze, copper and gold. There is new trend for distressed or antique metallic finish, which will suit the natural interior particularly well. Even the natural interior will have some shimmer — even though it’s bit more pearl-like. Rough, irregular finishes and textures will also be popular. Geometric styling will be the focus of shape in furnishings and accessories. Circles, ovals and swirls will dominate the design in everything from fabric to lighting to furniture.

No one is immune to breast cancer. And women with certain personal and family traits are more susceptible than others. The first step to early detection is as simple as asking yourself a few questions: 1. Am I over 54 years old? † yes (1pt) † no 2. Did my period start before age 12? † yes (1pt) † no 3. Did I have my first child after age 30? † yes (1pt) † no 4. Am I childless? † yes (1pt) † no 5. Has my mother, sister or daughter been diagnosed with breast cancer? † yes (2pts) † no 6. Have two or more family members been diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer? † yes (3pts) † no 7. Have I had a breast biopsy that revealed atypical cells? † yes (3pts) † no If your score is 3 or more, you may benefit from a breast cancer risk assessment and evaluation by the Clarian North Breast Care specialists.
