Stroke Survivor Saved with Quick Thinking and a Few, Easy Tests Dover man runs halfmarathon only a month later
Phil von Hemert running the Seacoast half-marathon (courtesy photo)
DOVER – The day started out like any other, for Phil von Hemert of Dover. It was three years ago, when he was 61 years old. He was getting ready to go out for an early morning run when everything seemed to start moving in slow motion. “I noticed I had a hard time getting my running clothes on,” he said. “I finally got them on and looked in mirror, but I had a hard time seeing.” His wife, Susan, a former registered nurse, was still sleeping. Von Hemert woke her up. She did a couple of tests and knew right away he was in trouble.
“She called 911. EMS came and I went to the hospital,” Phil said, referring to WentworthDouglas Hospital in Dover. “They had called the hospital on the way, so they were set up. I got a variety of tests,” Phil says, though he “wasn’t very aware at this point.” “When he got to the hospital, he was completely paralyzed and had no speech to speak of,” Susan said. Phil was a candidate for tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA, a protein that aids in the breakdown of blood clots. In those days, tPA was a relatively new treatment for stroke victims, and one Phil would need to take within three hours of the stroke, so the timing was crucial.
Shea-Porter Talks about Next Term in Congress NEW HAMPSHIRE – The following are responses by Congresswoman-elect Carol Shea-Porter to questions posed by the Granite State Sentinel upon her recent re-election to Congress. Shea-Porter was the United States representative for New Hampshire’s 1st congressional district from 2007 to 2011. Last term, former Manchester

mayor Frank Guinta served as representative. Shea-Porter won the seat back, and took some time out to discuss the coming months in Congress. What specific strengths/ weaknesses does a person’s gender bring to public office? I think each person brings his or her perspectives and experiences to public office. While I don’t think there is a particular strength or weakness to being male or female in office, I think having both men and women there provides a fullness of perspectives and experiences, and is necessary. What makes New Hampshire unique in its recognition of the power of female leadership? New Hampshire has a proud tradition of strong men and strong women, and voters have a wonderful record of judging each candidate on his or her merits and policies. Granite Staters are fair and pragmatic, and their votes for women as well as men show that they are very comfortable with female leadership.
What initiatives (or causes) are you looking to advance while in office? I want to work on: job creation, protecting Social Security,Medicare, and other essential programs while gradually reducing the debt, environmental issues, programs that support soldiers and veterans, and education issues. I have asked for committee assignments that reflect those priorities. What is your favorite family recreational activity? I love to go swimming at the beach and take walks with my family, and we all like our big family celebrations! Where do you get your news? I grew up in a family of news hounds, and I read and listen to many sources. I watch local channels and MSNBC, PBS, and CNN. I read the local papers. I also scan the three “Hill” papers and I read a variety of relevant articles from the national papers--the Washington Post, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Christian
Congresswoman-elect Carol SheaPorter (courtesy photo)
Science Monitor, LA Times, etc. I am a speed reader, and I love to read early in the morning, while I watch Morning Joe, and late at night, watching MSNBC. What is New Hampshire’s greatest natural resource? New Hampshire’s greatest resource is our people!
“Within 40 minutes I was feeling better,” Phil said. “Or at least awake enough to say he felt better,” Susan added. “The first adverse reaction to tPA is hemorrhaging, so if you are going to die, you die pretty quickly.” Quite the opposite occurred for the von Hemerts. An active couple who participates in triathlons, Phil ran the Seacoast half marathon about 30 days later. “I don’t think my diet has changed, with one exception,” he says. “No one knew what caused this thing, but the one symptom that was there is I was totally dehydrated, so I’ve been trying to drink more water.” The couple said the stroke, and his survival of it, has been a wake-up call. “Life is finite,” he says. “I had a lot of stress from a small business that I owned so I sold all the assets of it and that has helped a lot. We’re not going to live forever, so my daily life, including the bucket list, has changed.” Susan said they have always been active and healthy, and eat good foods. “So it wasn’t a factor of high cholesterol - that wasn’t the case. It was just something out of the blue,” she said. Phil’s advice to other people? “Number one would be to learn the symptoms of a stroke. Most of us know the symptoms of a heart attack but not a stroke,” he said. “It’s a good thing Susan knew what to do.” The National Stroke Association encourages people to “act FAST” – an acronym to help them remember to look at the 1) Face for facial droop; 2) Arms to see if they can hold arms out in front of them; 3) Speech or smile; and 4) Time, as in act fast since time is the single most important factor in treating a stroke. Phil is quick to acknowledge his wife’s role in saving his life. “Susan’s half the story,” he said. “I had the stroke, but if she hadn’t been there, I would have just gone back to bed.”

~ Ask The Computer Lady ~ Dear Elizabeth, In your last newsletter you commented that disks have a “longer shelf life” than a flash drive. I always thought of flash drives as huge floppies as it were, with large capacity, easier to use, and what I thought of as fairly permanent way to save or copy files, photos, anything. What is the shelf life? How does it degenerate? What happens and should I not be using them to save semi-precious items such as photos etc? Thanks for your time, Conni Dear Conni, Flash drives are indeed like huge floppies. You can copy files, edit files and update files on a flash drive just like you can on a floppy. They definitely are easier to use than an optical disk like a CD or DVD. However, just like floppies, a flash drive is more vulnerable to environmental conditions. For example, if you store your flash drive in damp conditions, it will not last as long as it would in a cool, dry environment. An-

other example, one that I have experienced more than once, is if you keep your flash drive in your pocket. It seems like every time I stick a flash drive in my pocket and carry it around for a day or two, the next time I want to use it, I am unable to access my files. I really don’t know how long a flash drive would hold your data if you filled it with files and then put it in a location under perfect conditions, I just know that in real-life situations, data can and does become corrupted. Optical disks on the other hand, are not as easy to stick in your pocket, not really affected by moist or hot environments, and if they do get dirty can be easily wiped clean. I have read that the shelf life for an optical disk ranges anywhere from 1 year to 100 years. Since the disks haven’t been in existence for 100 years, I can’t guarantee that they will last that long, however, I have disks that are 10 to 15 years old and are still readable. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, I am not familiar with exactly how to use a data disk. I have a Microsoft spreadsheet file that I would like to put on a disk. If I do and make changes to the file how do I get the changes to the disk on the disk? I have Windows 7. Helen
Dear Helen, From your question, I am not sure if you are trying to use a USB data stick, or a CD. (The CD would be a disk, while the USB device is a data stick.) I am going to guess that you are trying to use a USB data stick (also called a flash drive or thumb drive) because this is easier to use for backing up a file that you are making changes to. The first step is to insert the USB data stick into a USB port on your computer. Wait a second, and a small dialog box will appear asking you what you want to do with the device. Click “Open folder to view files” and a window will open showing you the contents of your flash drive. The second step is to open the folder containing your spreadsheet. We will use your “My Documents” folder for this example, but you can actually use any folder. To open the “My Documents” folder, click on “Start” then click on “Documents” in the right column of the start menu. You now have two windows open on your screen, one for the data stick, and another for your document. Move the two windows around so they are side by side. You can do this quite easily by right clicking on the taskbar, then click “Show Windows Side by Side.” Now, simply drag your spreadsheet file from your Documents window to the data stick window. Once the file has finished copying, you can close both windows and remove the data stick. When you make
changes to your spreadsheet, simply insert your data stick and repeat the steps above. If you are like me, and never remember to make another copy after making changes, you might want to think about one of the online backup services like Carbonite or Mozy. They will automatically backup a new copy of any file that you make changes to, and you don’t have to remember to do it. Elizabeth Dear Elizabeth, I`m still in Honduras and still starving for good books to read. After my last computer was stolen, it took me a few months to save the $ for another one, an HP Mini. Now I want to learn how I can access and read free books online. So far, I`ve only found hype. It will say free, but it means read a page and then buy. Another one I looked at created huge warnings from my anti-virus system that this was not a safe place to go. Can you tell me how I can access great books safely online? Your amigo in Honduras, Sara Dear Sara, I think the best and safest way to read free books online is to use the Amazon Kindle reader on your laptop, and browse the free books available on Amazon. First, go to Amazon at: http://tinyurl.com/KindleRead ingAps and download, then install the application for your HP mini. Once you have downloaded the Kindle application, go back to Amazon, click on “Kindle eBooks” in the menu across the top of the window, and click on “Kindle Best Sell-

ers” in the menu on the left. You will now see two columns of books. On the left is the top 100 paid books, and on the right is the top 100 free books. Simply browse through the free books column. When you find one that you like, you can “purchase” it and it will be available for you to read on your Kindle app that you downloaded. These books are completely free, and completely safe for you to read. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, Do you recommend my doing the Windows 7 SP 1 update to my computer or are there any negative side effects yet remaining to the Win 7 Service Pack 1 update? Thank you for your reply, Tony Dear Tony, I do recommend installing the Windows 7 service pack. Here is why. All Windows service packs are just collections of updates that have been released over time. Since the updates have been available, they are already known to be stable. You want to make sure you have all the updates because many of them were released to make your computer more secure. If you missed an update or two along the way, you might be vulnerable to malware. Before you do the update, be sure to create a restore point. That way, if your computer has any problems, you can restore it to the time just before the update. Elizabeth Interested in learning more?

PORTSMOUTH – The Button Factory in Portsmouth has been inviting the community to dive deep into the minds of its artists and their works for twenty-six years. That opportunity arises anew each year with the annual Holiday Open Studios, to be held on December 1-2 at the artistic hotspot on Islington Street in Portsmouth. Featured in this year’s Holiday Open Studios are some artists who are deeply influenced by the environment and the problems that have plagued it for so many years. There is a mission in this kind of art that is meant to provoke emotion, and to motivate change. “Enviro-related art is applicable to everybody. There isn’t an isolated demographic that our work is supposed to appeal to,” says Becky Holt, an oil painter who has worked at the Button Factory since 2009. “It has such a wide, diverse range of engagement because the condition of our environment affects everyone.” Holt has used problems with the environment as a theme ever since her undergraduate years at Alfred University. She conveys human relations with the environment and the detachment that people suffer by letting harmful practices degrade their planet and thus, lives. Holt is the assistant director at the Green Alliance in Portsmouth, exercising both her website for more information at www.mclaughlin-hillsgallery. com or call 603-319-8306.

graphic design skills and marketing expertise to help local businesses “go green” and help reduce carbon footprint. The Green Alliance is a local green business union that specializes in promoting local businesses who are environmentally conscious, and also offers a wide variety of discounted green products and services to their card-carrying members. Prominent enviro-artist Tim Gaudreau is also being featured at the Holiday Open Studios. Gaudreau is a multi-media eco-artist, with work ranging in sculpture, photography, video, and installation. At the start of his artistic career, Gaudreau was creating aesthetic photography, often used by environmental nonprofit organizations. Having a lifelong interest in nature, he was motivated by a desire to preserve the beauty of New Hampshire. However, Gaudreau felt this work didn’t go far enough; it came off as too subtle and didn’t leave as much of an emotional impact about the environment as he was feeling. “At that time, I realized that we were living in a crisis,” says Gaudreau. “I pay a lot of at-
tention to environmental issues, and I wanted to use my work to do whatever I can to show the community that our world could be a better place.” For these artists, the environment is the message but the mediums are varied. They portray views and concerns through their work, and by simply trying to understand the deeper meaning, the community can learn the significance that these pieces have in environmental activism. “The reason I chose to do activist-oriented work is because I really do believe that everyone wants to make the world a better place,” says Gaudreau. “It’s about raising issues for us to take a stand and get ourselves out of this crisis.” Check out Gaudreau’s and Holt’s inspirational masterpieces, as well as the works of more than 100 other artists at the 2012 Button Factory Holiday Open Studios through December 2.

Maple Syrup, Moose, and the Local Impacts of Climate Change
NEW HAMPSHIRE – In the northern hardwood forest, climate change is poised to reduce the viability of the maple syrup industry, spread wildlife diseases and tree pests, and change timber resources. And, according to a new BioScience paper just released by twenty-one scientists, without longterm studies at the local scale— officials will be ill-prepared to predict and manage these effects. Following an exhaustive review of more than fifty years of long term data on environmental conditions at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the paper’s authors arrived at a sobering conclusion: current climate change models don’t account for real life surprises that take place in forests. Lead author Dr. Peter Groffman, a microbial ecologist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, says, “Climate change plays out on a stage that
is influenced by land-use patterns and ecosystem dynamics. We found that global climate models omit factors critical to understanding forest response, such as hydrology, soil conditions, and plant-animal interactions.” One thing is clear: at Hubbard Brook Forest spring is advancing and fall is retreating. Over the past half century, the climate has warmed and there has been a rise in rainfall and a decrease in snowfall. Winters are getting shorter and milder, with snowpack melting some two weeks earlier. But soil thaw is no longer tightly coupled with spring plant growth, creating a transitional period that results in the loss of important soil nutrients. In the absence of insulating snow pack, exposed soils are more susceptible to freezing, which damages tree roots. Sugar maples are suffering a one-two punch: soil frost is linked to tree
mortality and warmer winters reduce sap yield. Mild winters are also encouraging the spread of pests and pathogens, including the destructive hemlock woolly adelgid—which was once held in check by cold winter temperatures. As snow depth decreases, deer are better able to forage in the forest. Their browsing damages young trees and spreads a parasite that is lethal to moose. Reduced snow pack is also a challenge for logging operations, which use snow-packed roads to move trees, and ski resorts, which already rely heavily on manmade snow. “Managing the forests of the future will require moving beyond climate models based on temperature and precipitation, and embracing coordinated long-term studies that account for real-world complexities,” Groffman said. “These studies can be scaled up, to give a more accurate big picture of climate change challenges - while also providing more realistic approaches for tackling problems at the regional scale.”
Former State Senator Jackie Cilley Named District Director NEW HAMPSHIRE – Congresswoman-elect Carol Shea-Porter announced this week that she has offered the position of district director to former State Senator Jackie Cilley. “I am very pleased to announce that Jackie will be joining our team,” said Shea-Porter. “She will bring extensive experience from her career in public service. The constituents of New Hampshire’s First District will benefit from her integrity, her unflagging work ethic, and her commitment to constituents. I look forward to her working with us in the 113th Congress.” Cilley served in the NH House from 2004 – 2006, representing Strafford District 3. She served in the NH Senate from 2006 – 2010, representing District 6. She is a native of Berlin, NH where she graduated from Berlin High School. As an
Unemployment Insurance Scam Continues to Spread New Hampshire employers receive false emails NEW HAMPSHIRE – The Maine Department of Labor warns employers of a spreading identity theft scam that attempts to lure employers into providing sensitive employee information. The department first issued a warning last week, but has since learned that employers as close as New Hampshire have been targeted in the past few days. The scam attempts to trick employers into responding to an email looking as if it is sent from a state’s “Division of Unemployment Assistance.” The email, which looks similar to legitimate job separation requests used by state unemployment agencies, requests wage and separation information on a “former employee” trying to

file a claim for unemployment benefits and directs the employer to click on a link to an
embedded website address. The email is generic and does not reference specific em-
ployees or businesses by name. However, the link in the email takes users to a website in South Africa. “Beware of suspicious emails and call us anytime if you have questions,” said Jeanne Paquette, labor commissioner. “Don’t respond or click on the link in any email from @detma.org. Do not provide sensitive employee data to anyone by email unless you know that you have an open and active claim with the Bureau of Unemployment Compensation of the Maine Department of Labor. All our departmental email addresses end with ‘@maine.gov.’” The department advises any business that believes it has been compromised to contact local law enforcement and take steps to protect employees’
