The Strength of a Community:

neighbors helping neighbors By: David J. Manning There is something simplistic about a child. Their innate sense of humanity and charity is something which seems to be lost as we age. Sinicism takes over and we are left dealing with a black and white world where work and responsibility takes center stage. Humanity and community tend to take a back seat. However every once in a great while something happens and makes us remember the blanket optimism from our youth. We take hold of hope and gather as a single united front. One such event is doing just that, and it’s easy to become a part of the change.

This is the sixth year that Granville is presenting their Home of Hope. Each year the team at Granville partners with key members and organizations within the community to present this non profit event, the grand prize being a Granville Eco-Smart home built within the La Ventana community. This year you could win a spacious two-story 2,400 square foot home valued at over $300,000. This spectacular home is outfitted with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, hand finished walls and a 2 kW Solar System with a pre-paid 20 year lease. There are over 20 secondary awards valued at over $15,000 which even includes the opportunity to lunch with Mayor Ashley Swearengin or the chance to fly aboard Eagle One, the Fresno County Sheriffs Department Helicopter. This simple fundraiser began in 2006 with the intent of helping to provide food, shelter, healthcare and education to the underprivileged within the Valley. Over the last five years the Granville Home of Hope has raised over $1.9 million for various local organizations. The 2011 goal is to raise $400,000 for 8 local organizations which include the Poverello House, the Community Food Bank and Hinds Hospice; just to name a few. Each ticket is only $100 and 100% of the proceeds go to help these various charities and educational foundations. One of the educational foundations which benefit each year from this event is the Foundation for Clovis Schools. Hugh Awtrey the Foundations Chairperson was nice enough to explain how the funds are used to help the various students who attend Clovis Schools.

The Strength of a Community: neighbors helping neighbors

“Caring and Commitment in Action.” “The Home of Hope donation goes specifically to The Foundation for Clovis Schools’ Students of Promise program. Students of Promise grants $1500 scholarships to 16 juniors that have overcome huge obstacles in their lives and continue to go to school. The obstacles include deaths in the family, health issues, drugs abuse, alcohol abuse and physical abuse. If these 16 juniors continue on to graduate, the money will be awarded, and can be used for future schooling. The Students of Promise program is funded totally by the Foundation through donations. Clovis Unified does not provide any funding, so donations like this allow the program to continue. The Foundation for Clovis Schools has been lucky enough to have been part of the Home of Hope program since it’s inception in 2006. Granville’s commitment to helping the youth in Fresno County makes them a perfect partner for the Foundation for Clovis Schools.”

The Assistance League of Fresno is a nonprofit organization made up of some 240 members with no paid staff. They solely depend on grants, donations and revenue from their AL Thrift Boutique that operates at 4771 Blackstone Avenue. Sandy Ross the PR Chair for the league explained to me how the funds from the Home of Hope, helps clothe the children of Fresno County through the Operation School Bell program. “The funds we receive from Home of Hope go directly to clothing children in need in Fresno County through our signature program Operation School Bell. Operation School Bell has clothed over 20,000 children in Fresno County over the past 20 years. We are given referrals through school personnel of those children most in need of school clothing. We give each child brand new pants, shirts, sweatshirt, jacket, socks, underwear, shoes and a hygiene kit filled with essentials such as a tooth brush, tooth paste, brush, shampoo and soap. The additional funds we receive from Home of Hope help us clothe even more children than we budget for each year. We are only limited by the funds we receive and so with more funds, we can help more children in need of school clothing. Even though we are able to clothe over 1,000 children each year the need is far greater. Some of these

kids don’t attend school regularly because they don’t have clothes to wear to school and of course, in Fresno County, there is a huge need for school clothing with poverty levels and joblessness rates at all-time highs. Our partnership with Granville and the Home of Hope is so important to accomplish our mission of clothing those children in need in Fresno County. With these hard economic times, there are so many more families and thus children suffering. Our motto, ‘Caring and Commitment in Action’ is greatly enhanced with our Home of Hope partnership as we are able to further our mission of clothing more children.” It is through these simple gestures of humanity which really make a lasting impression on a community as a whole. The staff at HIS Magazine encourages you to be a part of the change which is helping our community.

GUY haberman Interviews Gary Waksman Starting in Spring Training a camera crew followed the San Francisco Giants every day through August. The footage aired weekly on Showtime in a series called “The Franchise.” Gary Waksman is the Senior Producer for Original Entertainment for MLB Productions and was the Supervising Producer of “The Franchise.”

Guy Haberman: How long did it take, starting in the Spring, before the players stopped being conscious of the cameras and microphones being around them all the time? Gary Waksman: We noticed a big difference after the first episode aired; it was a preview episode of the series that aired in April to give the fans, viewers, and really the players a sense of what the identity of the series was all about. So once they gained a comfort level with the identity of the content, and that it wasn’t going to be your Jersey Shore version of the Giants. Once they got comfortable with that we really started to see them ease up (and we started to blend in). GH: Is there something that stands out to you, personally, from the experience? GW: I think overall, going into this project, we would hear how they are characters and misfits and from a storytelling perspective we’ve heard it all before. But that really is not the case, these guys all really bring fun to the ballpark and it’s a unique group. They bring so many different things to the table… we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into the Brian Wilson character and see how many layers of his character we could peel away. These guys have held true to form, they are who they are. GH: When you get the film on Wilson and the coordinating producer says “we’re sending you some Wilson footage tonight” is that like the big gift under the Christmas tree?

GW: It really is, we have this dilemma every week: how much Wilson is too much Wilson? The answer is you can’t have enough; you could really do all the episodes about the guy. One of the things we came to realization of is he’s better than us at what we do, so what we do with every interview with him is we give him a minute (or so) to spew whatever is at the tip of his tongue and that’s where we got “Got Heeem”, its where the “Pop Chips and Chalula sauce” segment came from. You never know, with Brian Wilson you’re better off asking a question and then shutting-up and listening to what he has to say.

“These guys all really bring fun to the ballpark and it’s a unique group” continues on page 24 >>

Guy Haberman Interviews Gary Waksman continued from page 23 >>

GH: One of the other central story lines that was interesting is Ryan Vogelsong, what’s it been like to see that storyline evolve? GW: Here’s a guy that during our very first shoot in Spring training, you see his jersey hanging there and I had to turn some of the other producers and its like “ok, who is this guy?” And then all of a sudden the season starts, Zito gets injured, and this guy gets the call and makes the best of it. You really can’t script a better story than Ryan Vogelsong. You know the all-star part of it blows our mind, and he really made the best of his journey. It’s the best unsung hero, journeyman, becomes an all-star story… we’ll take that any day of the week. GH: A guy who had a similar story last year is Andres Torres, and he is the subject of some of the best footage I saw in the series. Here’s a guy barefoot and shirtless, in designer jeans, throwing cinder blocks over his head (working out). How did you come to get that footage?

GW: When we met with some of the players during the off-season we asked them how they prepare. Andres Torres, being the nice guy that he is, said ‘we’re going to Puerto Rico this weekend, why don’t you come with us?’ So we’re certainly not going to turn down a weekend in Puerto Rico to begin with and then to spend it with Torres is all the more interesting. Like Mark DeRosa said, “(Torres) is the only guy is sports history to workout in True Religion jeans.” That’s really Andres Torres…Jeremy Affeldt calls Torres the nicest guy he’s every met and he doesn’t take anything for granted. He takes a smile to the ballpark and definitely his attitude is infectious. GH: Did you ever think an interview with a yoga instructor would work its way into the series? GW: Its one of those surprises that you get when you shoot thousands of hours of footage. Barry (Zito) was rehabbing his early season injury and we said to Barry “we’d love to shoot your rehab” and as luck would have it Barry said “be at my house at 7:00 a.m. we’re going to do some yoga.” Next thing you know we’re up in his Beverly Hills home and the yoga instructor is there, the sun is (coming) up and that was one of the more intriguing shoots of the year. Barry is one of those unique characters as well, he’s so well spoken, he’s able to tap into his strengths and weaknesses as a person and a player and he’s able to emit that on camera GH: One of the most memorable moments is Bruce Bochy telling Brandon Belt he made the team out of Spring training. That has to be up there for you as one of the best moments you’ve been able to capture.

24

SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

GW: I’m glad you brought that up; I think that moment and the moment where Vogelsong gets told by Bochy that he’s taking him to the All-Star Game are the two best moments, the two most iconic moments of the season. I know for me personally, those are my favorite scenes and I know a lot of viewers have responded through the various social networking platforms to that Brandon Belt scene, being told that “congratulations you’re going to the big leagues” I mean who doesn’t want to hear that? Even if you’re 50 years old and you have no chance of being in the big leagues you still want to hear that, those are the moments that we all dream about and we got to live that through Brandon Belt and that was a great moment that we were able to capture thanks to Belt and thanks to Bochy as well.


Eating To Win! nutrition: the secret weapon By: Nick Papagni I have a question for all the HIS Magazine readers out there; what is the impact of school nutritional programs when provided for student athletes? Some schools have the funds to do it, and some schools have to hope that their kids eat and drink the right things before each practice and game. When I think back to when I played at Bullard in the late 70’s, there was no nutritional dieting going on. During the school year my mom made me pancakes almost every morning.  I loved hot lunches at school, and went home to pasta for dinner. There was Pepsi, Slurpee’s, Chips, Cookies, and Mama Mia’s Pizza.  I think you get my point. We ate whatever and never knew the difference. For football practice we brought out our own water jug.  The big question would be if we got to drink it?  We would hear from our coaches, “No water breaks for you guys with a practice like that!” We did get salt tablets… but I never took them. Today’s high school teams train with weights, contact camps and seven-on-seven all summer long. This training seems to resemble that of today’s college athletes. Some high school players do almost exactly the same thing when it comes to training and nutrition. Coaches hope that their players are eating right, and drinking fluids so they are ready to hit the field for practices and games. Football players may sweat at a rate of 10 liters per day, and they can lose 12 pounds of sweat in a single practice.  It can be hard to get enough fluids. Heat illness is most common on the first day or two of preseason practice. As athletes, it is important to know facts about diet and dietary habits, in order to perform at the optimum level. Excess weight in the form of fat reduces speed and endurance of any athlete. Proper nutrition is extremely important for football players. Football requires short bursts of energy; eating enough carbohydrates is critical. Nutrition not only impacts strength, speed and stamina, but recovery as well. A player who comes to practice without having eaten breakfast or lunch, or skimps on fluid intake during hot summer practices, is not going to reach his/ her full potential – which ultimately affects the performance of the team as a whole.

26

SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

The primary fuel substance for football is carbohydrates. An ideal diet for football players requires 55 to 60 percent of their daily caloric intake to come from carbohydrates, 15 percent from protein and 30 percent from fat. Simply stated, their diet should be 2/3 carbohydrates and 1/3 protein, with an emphasis on moderate fat. Carbohydrate containing foods with lower fat should be emphasized: bagels over doughnuts, mashed potatoes over fries, grilled chicken over fried, frozen yogurt over ice cream. Upping the amount of carbohydrates in your diet will provide you with more available energy during practice and games. Less fried foods often decrease the chance of an upset stomach, which may also boost performance. During two-a-days pre-season practices, carbohydrates must be the main fuel source. Players will not recover in time for the next practice unless carbohydrate intakes are adequate. Watch the protein intake. While protein is needed in an athlete’s diet to build and maintain muscle mass, excess protein consumption will be stored as fat and may dehydrate the body. Clovis West has one of the Valley’s best weight trainers on staff, Steve Sobonya. Sobonya will monitor the players on what to eat before, during and after school. Other schools do the same. Clovis West is always well prepared before practices and games even before they start. They incorporate a nutritionist. The nutritionist works with the athletes on how to gain weight or how to have the proper diet. It does cost a lot of money to run a good nutritional program for a school team. My radio partner Matt Johnson, who is now coaching again over at Edison along with Head Coach Tim McDonald said, “NUTRITIONIST! Are you kidding me? We are hoping our kids put ANYTHING in their stomach.” Matt says, “Some kids might not eat all day long and we expect for them to

practice hard.  People think it is so easy to win over at Edison because the Tigers have talent and speed everywhere. What people don’t think about is how hard some kids have it when it comes to the proper food or just eating! We are getting better but we still have a long way to go.” Matt and I had Steve Sobonya on as a guest on our 1430 ESPN RISE radio show when Steve said that he chops up almonds for a snack before practice for the Clovis West athletes and Matt almost fell off his stool. Matt says; “We are competing against that?”

“Nutrition not only impacts strength, speed and stamina, but recovery as well” I asked Kim Tirapelle if the Clovis West program had an advantage over a team like Edison when it comes to nutrition. Kim says, “It’s a huge advantage. For example, last year during preseason, I spoke with the Clovis High’s program and covered a lot of issues like dehydration in the heat as well as worked with them on their pre-game meals and travel nutrition. It was very helpful for them and they had much fewer issues with cramping, GI distress due to the wrong foods pre-game, etc.  I have also worked with Buchanan, Clovis West, Clovis North, Bullard, Clovis East and Hoover this year alone. I go around to any team that asks and will do a free sports nutrition presentation on the basics. I’d be happy to help.” Kim Tirapelle is also the Team Registered Dietitian for the Fresno State athletes, and is the only Registered Dietitian in the Central Valley with the CSSD credential. High school coaches have such a tough job not only trying to outsmart the other team on the field, but they have to hope kids eat right and have energy for practice time and game night. We have become more aware of the importance that nutrition plays in the performance of our athletes on the field. If only Kim Tirapelle would have saved me from myself back in the day, maybe I wouldn’t be a Pepsi-holic today! Kim Tirapelle Registered CSSD Dietitian kimtirapelle@gmail.com 559.797.5638


Forget the Titans The Good, Bad and Ugly of Sports Movies By: Paul Swearengin “I’ll make it.” With that line, Jimmy Chitwood called the final shot that carried the smalltown Hickory Huskers to a State Championship Game victory of giant South Bend High School in the classic sports movie “Hoosiers”. There is a long list of “David vs. Goliath” sports movies and once a year, we dive into mountains of film and name our annual list of Best Sports Movies of all-time. If you think the “Ginger vs. Mary Ann” arguments can get heated, try arguing “Bull Durham” vs. “The Love of the Game”. The old saying is that there are “two things you should never discuss at parties” but I believe tearing down your BFF’s favorite sports flick will lose a friend faster than discussing religion or politics. Nonetheless, I move in - undaunted!

MAKINGS OF A GOOD SPORTS MOVIE There are ___ things that are key to a good sports movie - (1) A heart-tugging, believable story, (2) An amazing, if not miraculous ending that isn’t campy or cliché and (3) and most important of all - good, believable sports scenes. Reason #2 eliminates one of the favorites of many “Remember the Titans”, #1 on my all-time overrated sports movies. Although I love Denzel Washington, this movie takes the term “based on a true story” to it’s very elastic endings. That word “based” means the movie makers can really make anything they want to happen in the movies in a way they think will interest viewers whether it happened in real life or not. In “Titans”, the movie shows TC Williams high being hosed by a bigoted ref, nearly costing them

a playoff game and then winning the title game in dramatic fashion. The truth is the integrated TC Williams team was the #2 ranked team in the country and rarely played a close game. The championship game in real life was a 27-0 yawner, which apparently wouldn’t go for Jerry Bruckheimer and the production staff. For them, an integrated team and coaching staff wasn’t amazing enough, so they made every single character a cliché and not a one true to a real-life person in the story. Other than that - the movie was great (please note my lacing of the term with HEAVY sarcasm). LET’S CHANT ‘OVER-RATED’ There are other movies on my hated list that make many men lose faith in me - “The Natural”…are you kidding me? The lights exploding and sparks flying all around? Give

me a break! “Field of Dreams”…I love the idea of the father-son storyline, but the rest of it? Sorry, I just don’t get it! My personal favorite Rocky “4 through 22”… Sly definitely should have stopped at 3. But the movie opinion that I carry that really makes sports guys hate me is this one - I HATE the movie “Rudy”! “Rudy” is a movie that makes grown men cry, but I found it to be a movie about a family so repulsively unhealthy, I was simply rooting for everyone to die. Let’s be serious, a family with a dad who works in a factory that refuses to acknowledge the existence of a son who has killed himself to get into college. Oh by the way, you’re brother is dating your girlfriend and we’re all thrilled with it. Stop the film and let me out PLEASE! I hate to burst your bubble, guys, but in real life, the team never continues on page 30 >> SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

Rocky

went in and set their jerseys on coach Devine’s desk and the stadium never started chanting for Rudy. He did get in a blow out game and even made a sack, so I guess you can be happy about that. There are so many better movies with which I’d like to spend my time - so enough of the hate, let’s concentrate on the ones that do it right - and there are a bunch of them. THE SLEEPERS

the lore of the classic line “Show me the money” too good for this to be anything other than a Top 10 Sports Movie. By the way, Fresno’s own Tim McDonald is among those to claim that line to be his own in real life. That makes Cuba Goodings line far outweigh “You had me at hello”. Another in my sports movie Hall of Fame, Kevin Costner, and that’s even with my befuddlement by “Field of Dreams” and my loathing for “Love of the Game”… I mean what baseball players wears a full uniform to practice and keeps it on to go over to his girlfriend’s house? Costner stars famously in two of the best sports movies of all-time - “Tin Cup” and “Bull Durham”. With these movies Costner stars in two of my top 5 all-timers. I mean, has any movie ever had a better sports movie ending than “Tin Cup”. I literally yelled at the screen when he took a drop on the final hole at the US Open. I ask you, has any baseball movie given a more realistic inside look at the game than “Durham”? THE GREATEST

Slap Shot Tin Cup Jerry Maguire Caddyshack Eight Men Out Major League Mystery Alaska Raging Bull Miracle All the Right Moves Brian’s Song The Longest Yard (Burt Reynold’s edition) Hoop Dreams Major League 2 Days of Thunder Rollerball (Original) Cinderella Man Bad News Bears (original) The Sandlot Vision Quest Karate Kid (original)

By “sleepers” I don’t mean movies that make you snooze, but, rather, those that are like Tina Fey, “sneaky hot”. For instance, it was all bad 1980’s hair, but the hockey movie “Youngblood” with Rob Lowe and Patrick Swayze has surprisingly good hockey scenes and a good final climax. For some reason, hockey movies seem to lend themselves to good drama with “Miracle”, the hilarious “Mystery Alaska” and “Slap Shot” all on the ice and all on my Top 25 Sports Movies list. Other surprisingly good sports movies: “The Bad News Bears” (the original not the Billy Bob remake), the documentary “Hoops Dreams” and one of my all-time favorite campy, 80’s movies “Vision Quest”. If I were Mathew Modine’s character in the movie I would have dropped the ‘quest’ in a second for the amazingly sultry Linda Fiorentino. The warm up scene with the song “Lunatic Fringe” playing in the background is worth the price of the rental all by itself! Tom Cruise has to get a nod for making good sports movies. His portrayal of a reckless Nascar driver in “Days of Thunder” and a rebellious high school football player in “All the Right Moves” get him a spot in the Sports Movie Hall of Fame. Oh, and add in “Jerry Maguire” cinches his place as one of the all-time greats. Although some would argue “Maguire” is more chick flick than sports movie, the sports scenes are too real (in being integrated with actual scenes from a Monday Night Cowboys/Cardinals football game) and

Ali JUST OFF THE LIST Youngblood Blue Chips Bend it Like Beckham Kicking and Screaming

I consider “Rocky” to not only be my #3 sports movie of all-time, but one of the truly great American films ever made. I also love “Caddyshack”, “8 Men Out” and “Major League 1&2”…but back to where we started this story, on the basketball courts of Indiana. One sports movie had the great story line (with a story so amazing, the movie makers didn’t bother botching it up too much), a fantastic dramatic ending and realistic sports scene’s beyond all others. For this movie, the film makers enticed a crowd at a High School basketball game at Butler Field House in Indianapolis to stay after their own game to be a huge crowd of extras for the final scene in the movie. Then, for a bit, they just let the boys play - a real basketball game… and they filmed it. Then stage a few scenes and you not only have the best basketball movie (topping “Blue Chips” and Robbie Benson’s “One on One”) but simply the greatest sports movie ever made. That movie is…drum roll…”Hoosiers”, my runaway favorite sports movie ever. Oh you can disagree, but you’d be wrong - let this raging argument roll on!

HIS BBQ

the cutting edge By: Brent Walton Like most guys I am fascinated with gadgets. It doesn’t matter if they are really useful or not. Tools of any kind are my favorite and in the last decade or so, tools have gone under a drastic change in style, for the better. From grip to function they are just designed better, more portable, and with more power. Power tools especially have increased the ease of use and their battery power is amazing compared to when they first surfaced on the scene. Tools use to go in a “tool box” but today they are in a “storage system”. My favorite tool of all time though is the knife. Yes, mans first tool. I love knives and all the different styles and types for all kinds of jobs. From hunting knives, razor knives, swords and sabers, even letter openers. I

appreciate the skill and the craftsmanship that goes into a well made knife. Being a “FOODIE” type myself, a good knife or knives are a must in the kitchen or around the barbeque. A good knife does not mean an expensive knife either, don’t be sucked into the big fancy retail store knifes, do some research before you buy. Good knives will last a lifetime if taken care of properly, keep them clean and keep them sharp. Originally knives were made from rock or flint and obsidian; we have come along way from that but the basic principle is still the same. Knives have developed through the years as technology has improved; so has the knife design and construction. Today knives are made with carbon steels mainly and other exotic metals, ceramics as well as laminates. Basically I would recommend 5 must have knives for the kitchen although one can never have too many kitchen knives in my humble opinion. I am sort of a collector or hoarder of kitchen knives, especially older ones. Of course you will find a Ginsu a Yoshi Blade or a Ronco knife set or two around my house, but I really have been partial to the Forschner brand which has been morphed into the Victorinox brand, made by the Swiss Army Knife people. Oh, those marketing geniuses, why change something that has worked since 1853.

Paring Knife- 3 to 4” long. Small version of a chefs knife for intricate work, I prefer this knife to have a serrated edge, it makes it more versital. Bread Knife- or serrated edge knife (small ridges in blade). Should be about 8 to 12” in length-- best for cutting bread with hard crust and soft on the inside. Tomatoes are easily cut with a serrated edge knife. Carving or Slicer Knife- 8 to 14” in length with a Granton edge. The Granton edge is a series of scallops cut into the knife blade and is very helpful in keeping things from sticking to the blade when you are cutting thin slices. Great for cutting and slicing large meats and roasts. Boning Knife- 5 to 6” in length. A great knife for trimming meats. It should have some flex in the blade and I prefer the end to slightly turn up as it make it easier to get in difficult areas on the meats.

The most important feature a knife should have for you is feel. Pick it up, how does it feel? It must feel good in your hand. This will be different for everyone, but try different styles and brands before you commit to buying it. Remember you will have this knife for a long time. Get rid of all those cheap dime store knives before you hurt yourself! When you have a good knife it will give you the cutting edge.


HIS music By: Hammer at New Rock 104

Being sick is never fun, whether it’s winter, or the dreaded summer cold, where you just feel ‘blah’. Both are guaranteed to be fun times… hear the sarcasm? But sometimes, even when you are feeling bad or just a little under the weather, you can hear a song, or an artist, that will pick you up, and make your day seem bright again. Now there is even no proven ‘healing power’ associated with music… or is there? I do know the time I was in the hospital, the one thing I wanted the most was ‘my walkman’ (yes, walkman…Google or Wikipedia it) so I could listen to my favorite tape at the time…oh, if only iPods were around then. So this got me thinking, when you feel sick, bad, ‘blah’, etc. is there an album, song or artist that you listen to when the Theraflu isn’t working? I have mine, they kind of jump around, and they also kind of go with the levels of the cold I had and to be honest, were the ones I remember from the last time I was sick, so here we go:

Megadeth – Countdown to Extinction – I believe I threw this on as I initially felt the achiness, and tiredness first start creeping in. I thought maybe the power of Dave Mustaine’s masterpiece (yes, metal dudes, I said it) would fight off the sickness, as this is my ABSOLUTE favorite album from this band, and actually I think convinced myself that it did for a few hours.

MUSE – The Resistance – Ok, this was the ‘next day’ album, where everything built up over night and your not quite officially ready to declare you are sick, so you put on something to try to change the headspace, as you keep trying to tell yourself you are not getting sick, but in the back of your mind you know you are, songs like ‘Uprising’ and the title track were trying to change my mind, but alas to know avail.

Cowboy Junkies – The Trinity Session – Ok, so this was my ‘officially sick’ album the last time I had a cold and still is an amazing album. My buddy, James, first turned me on to this album back when we worked together at a another station in Bakersfield, and I’ve bought it over and over and finally downloaded it when I jumped on the iPod bandwagon. A great blah kind of album, whether you are sick or down or heartbreak has set in, so when I was hopped up on cold medicine, this was ‘my I hate being sick’ album this last time around of having a cold . continues on page 38 >> SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

37


continued from page 37 >> Alice in Chains- Jar of Flies – This popped up as it always does for me, as it’s in my top 5 albums of all time, so sick, well, sad, happy, it’s always a solid choice, my last cold was a tough one so I guess one became my ‘officially sick day #2’ album – plus, it being a mellower, more acoustic based album for AIC, it kind of fit the mood, with the constant nose blowing and other assorted things going on as I was in bed, during the day. KISS – Anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – My all time favorite band, my first concert at 5 years old and well…. my favorites. My iPod is pretty stocked with KISS product, to the point of having particular KISS playlists. I’m not sure which album or playlist I selected, but the Hottest Band in the World was there once I was officially back to good health.

Foo Fighters – Wasting Light – this album had just come out last time I got sick, and luckily, I was feeling much better so wanted something current that would bring me up along with my diet of Gatorade and soup. I’ve written about this album before, in a previous issue, but it really is that good, and has a permanent place in my iPod from here on out. As I’ve stated, this album has take over the mantle of ‘favorite Foos album’ from ‘The Colour and the Shape’ so once I was feeling better, it had to be heard again.

So old, new, metal, alternative, and that was just the last time I was sick, which I can say was really the only time this year. It’s funny how the music went with the way I was feeling, from the initial rundown, to full on sickness. I listened to a lot of music when I was sick because daytime television during the week is not fun; there are only so many judge shows one can watch before being done with the whole thing. Do you have a similar pattern when you get under the weather? Do you remember what you listened to last time you were not feeling well? Did it help? Did it hurt? Did the music help you get better? Did it prolong the sickness? Music emits emotions in people, so next time you are sick, or feeling under the weather, think about that one artist, album, or song, that can make you feel a little better at the time, and throw it on. Feel free to e-mail me albums, artists, songs that have gotten you through the achiness, stuffiness, and overall blah the last time you were sick – jsquires@wilksfresno.com – and think about that particular music of choice next time you reach for the Nyquil or Theraflu. Music may be the true chicken soup for not just the soul, but for whatever may have you down for the count.

HIS health To Your Health By: Ciara Norton

Between work, family, friends and fun, health is often left behind. These are the top 10 health risks for men that need more attention than they get.

1

Heart attacks. This is the most dangerous health risk for men because sometimes heart attacks can be genetic, so no matter how healthy you are, you still have a chance of suffering from one. If heart attacks do not run in your family, there are a few ways to prevent them from occurring. The first way to avoid a heart attack is to up your amount of cardio exercise. The more you work your heart, the stronger your heart muscle will be. Another way to prevent heart attacks is simply by getting more sleep. When you don’t sleep enough your body can begin to temporarily shut down and your heart muscle can be weakened. Even though heart attacks can sometimes be prevented, they are still the number one killer in men. So how do you know when you are having a heart attack? A heart attack is when the blood flow going to the heart is either reduced or stopped completely. When the heart muscle doesn’t get the blood flow that is requires, it stops. Heart attack symptoms are something that all men should know. The most common are chest pain/discomfort and shortness of breath. So pay attention men, and don’t let a heart attack be your cause of death.

2

High cholesterol is the right hand man of heart attacks. When men have high cholesterol, they are more at risk for heart attacks as well as strokes. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that can build up and clog the inside of arteries if it is not paid attention too. Preventing high cholesterol can be difficult since it is often genetic, but there are ways to help reduce your chances. Making sure you get plenty of exercise and that you are at a healthy weight are the two most important ways to reduce high cholesterol. Also, if you eat a lot of food that contains high amounts of saturated fat or trans fats, your cholesterol will most likely be high. Many fast food choices and overly greasy meals contain fat that will work against your cholesterol, so it is best to avoid those options. To check your cholesterol level, visit your doctor often and make sure you keep it under control.

3

High blood pressure is often confused with high cholesterol. Although both can be deadly, they are not the same. High blood pressure increases with age, while high cholesterol can begin as early as age 20. High blood pressure is when the force of the blood being pumped through the arteries is stronger than it should be. The arteries are not strong enough to endure this kind of force, so over time high blood pressure can lead to aneurysms, heart failure and even kidney failure. Diet is an important factor when it comes to blood pressure. Consuming excessive amounts of salty foods, not getting enough physical activity and high alcohol consumption can all contribute to high blood pressure. Doctors determine whether blood pressure is healthy or not by using two numbers, systolic and diastolic. Systolic, the first number in the reading is how much pressure exists when the heart is beating. Diastolic is the pressure of the heart between beats. A healthy blood pressure is about 120/80. Visit your doctor often to monitor your blood pressure.

4

Strokes are the number four killer of men. Even though strokes typically occur in men over the age of 60, all ages can suffer from them. Strokes can be fatal, but in some cases they can also leave you paralyzed. A stroke is when oxygen is blocked from getting to the brain. When the brain doesn’t get the oxygen that is requires, brain cells begin to die off, sometimes causing long lasting side effects. The good news is, most strokes in men are preventable. The ways to prevent them are simple. By controlling your blood pressure, exercising often, making the right food decisions and not smoking. Strokes can usually be prevented.

5

Diabetes can begin as early as age 20 in men. With obesity on the rise even in young children, more people are becoming susceptible to diabetes. Diabetes is the result of many scenarios, such as genetic history of diabetes in your family, obesity and a high sugar diet. Diabetes is a result from the body becoming resistant to the hormone insulin. Insulin stimulates cells in the body so that they are able to consume glucose and turn it into energy. As the body becomes immune to insulin, blood glucose levels become uncontrollable. The common symptoms of diabetes are frequent urination, increased hunger and thirst, fatigue and sometimes blurred vision. Diabetes can be life threatening if certain lifestyle choices are not monitored. To prevent diabetes, it is important for men to watch their weight and make healthy eating choices. Sometimes, this isn’t enough since diabetes can be genetic. If diagnosed with diabetes, usually a medication is prescribed that helps the body to control blood glucose levels.

HIS health 6

Lung cancer is the most common cancerous death in men. The reason that so many men are diagnosed with lung cancer is because of smoking. If you are a non-smoker, then your chances of getting lung cancer are almost nonexistent. There are few symptoms for lung cancer so usually by the time it is caught it is too late to treat. Lung cancer is a quick and deadly disease. Luckily, prevention is easy, put down the cigarettes boys.

8

Testicular disease/testicular cancer is a slightly less common cancer, but is still highly dangerous and should not be overlooked. There are many types of testicular diseases, but testicular cancer is the most common. Testicular cancer occurs when cells in the testicles grow at a faster rate than they should, leading to cell mutation. Unfortunately, testicular cancer is mostly caused by a family history of testicular cancer. On the bright side, it is almost always treatable. The best prevention for testicular cancer is to be checked by your doctor often.

10

Depression is something that many men may not consider as severe as cancer or high cholesterol, but the truth is that depression is a leading cause of death in men of all ages. Depression is often viewed as a woman’s problem. Although women often develop depression as well, men develop it in different ways. When men are depressed they do not always act sad, often they will turn to aggressive behavior or excessive alcohol and drug use. These unhealthy physical habits can lead to other physical diseases such as strokes and heart attacks. Once a depressed man has driven his body to this unhealthy level, there is no telling what permanent damage there may be. Avoiding drug and alcohol usage, getting plenty of sleep, exercising regularly and reducing your amount of stress as much as possible are the best ways to prevent depression in men.

7

Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly cancer among men. On the plus side, it can often be prevented. Almost all of the men that develop colorectal cancer are over the age of 50. Although age and genetic history play are important factors, obesity, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and diabetes are major causes of colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is often preventable with screening. Unlike lung cancer it can sometimes be detected and stopped early on. Men over the age of 50 should be screened regularly to make sure that no cancerous cells have developed.

9

Kidney disease is a painful yet preventable disease. Everyone has two kidneys that take waste from the blood and filter it into urine form. To prevent kidney disease, men should drink plenty of fluids, get blood and urine tests regularly and consume as little amounts of salt as possible. Kidney disease may exist in the body for months or years before it is detected so men should be checked often. While the prevention may sound fairly simple, kidney disease is most common in men who have diabetes, high blood pressure or a genetic history of the disease.

To make this easy for you men, make healthy choices. Don’t smoke, go to the gym instead of watching TV and try to eat a nutritious meal every once in a while instead of the biggest greasiest hamburger you can fit your mouth around. Last but not least, communicate with your doctor, have check-ups regularly and don’t be afraid to ask questions about your health.

HIS fitness Feel, Move&Look Better Z-Health for Injury Rehabilitation, Neural Re-Education & Mobility Restoration By: Dina Juve I was first introduced to Z-Health by Kenneth Jay, former RKC Certified Russian Kettlebell Master, Z-Health Master Trainer, Neuroscientist and Author of Viking Warrior Conditioning and Perfecting the Press. Kenneth lives in Denmark but has clients all over the world. Kenneth is known in the Kettlebell world as “Dane of Pain” for developing the VO2 max protocol with Kettlebells-- just Google the guy, he is a walking testimony of good health. I needed to re-certify for my RKC Russian Kettlebell certification and I was given an invitation to be an assistant at an up-coming certification, which was a huge honor. Pavel Tsatsouline, founder of the Russian Kettlebell Challenge doesn’t cut women any slack so I knew I had to bring my ‘A game to pass my recert and represent as a RKC Russian Kettlebell Assistant. I decided to schedule a session with Kenneth Jay when he would be in the states to make sure I was 100% prepared. Dina introduced me to Z-Health and brain re-mapping because I developed bursitis in my right hip. One session with Dina taught me how to get relief from joint pain and stiffness.  Z-Health has become an important part of my work out program and I am on my way to attaining my desired weight and great workouts with no after effects of joint and muscle soreness. You won’t believe it until you try it! -L.L., Fresno CA

You have to understand my surprise when he gave me ankle circles and hip pendulums as drills to prepare for my re-cert. I might be 115 pounds but I can press and snatch a 20kg (44lbs Kettlebell) and swing and deadlift a “Beast” (that’s 106 pound Kettlebell). I’m thinking WTF is this guy thinking? He insisted Z-Health would get me stronger and leaner, more defined abs (a goal of mine), reduce the chronic pain I’ve dealt with for 31 years and re-hab both my knees after arthroscopy surgery I had scheduled. I was hesitant but watching Kenneth move and train

SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

effortlessly had me thinking maybe I should listen. In the few months I have been going to Dina for training, Z health has had a tremendous impact on the quality of my life. It has improved my mobility, flexibility, & strength. Additionally, my chronic pain has been reduced as my strength and flexibility has improved. I can see and feel the changes and look forward to continuing to improve the quality of my life with Z health. -J.H., Fresno CA (JH has undergone surgery and has used Z-Health R-Phase drills and Physical Therapy for re-habilitation.)

So what is Z-Health? Z-Health is a precise training system that uses specific joint-based techniques to teach you how to move with pain-free control, confidence and coordination. Z-Health is very different from traditional training programs because it focuses not on muscles but your joints and the small, vitally important, nerves that surround them. Developed by a chiropractic physician, Dr Cobb has a degree in human biology and has done extensive post-grad study in a variety of areas, including neurology, neurophysiology, pain management, nutrition and functional medicine, kinesiology, musculoskeletal trauma, and advanced soft tissue techniques. Why is this important? When joints fail to work properly it is almost always because they have become immobile – either through injury (including surgery), lack of correct exercise, poor posture or bad movements habits. The truth is that most cases, an immobile joint is the one weak link that no amount of traditional strengthening and no amount of stretching can correct. Z-Health helps you address every area of your body, and helps you begin the process of rehabilitating poor posture, poor movement patterns, and areas of pain due to injury or surgery. If you don’t believe it just try it.

Bend over and try to touch your toes (straight leg). Go as low as you can without straining or forcing. Ankle Circles: Begin in a neutral stance. Hold on to a wall or chair if your balance is unstable. Lift one leg up in front of you while maintaining overall body relaxation. Perform ankle circles clockwise and counterclockwise circles. Do three repetitions in each direction Slow and controlled is KEY! When you finish bend over and touch your toes again (straight leg). If done correctly you should notice you feel looser or go lower. I saw a guy who hadn’t touched his toes in years almost cry after this drill. It’s amazing to see someone feel looser and pain free after something so simple but it works. This is just one of many Z-Health drills. Due to pain, injuries and surgeries we stop using the area of the body that hurts. But as they say, “if you don’t use it you lose it.” From my experience and that of many of my clients over time, if you use the joints and nerves in and area that has pain in a slow precise manner, (as with a Z-Health drill) its incredible but you really do move and feel so much better. It’s truly life changing. Everything Kenneth told me would happen from implementing Z-Health in my daily regimen has come true. So how can Z-Health help you if you don’t have pain, injuries or had surgery? Z-Health can increase overall Strength, Speed, Power, Endurance, Flexibility, Visual Acuity, Overall Wellbeing and Cognitive Performance. Many athletes are using Z-Health to enhance performance.

HIS fitness It’s Never Too Late By: Caleb Iness

So you haven’t really exercised since high school. Life gets in the way. There’s school, work, family obligations, and so on. I get it. For whatever reason, you’ve been unable to find the will or the time to get a workout in. Don’t worry-- you’re not a lost cause. With a little bit of time and effort, you’ll be able to exercise just like you could when you were in your prime (maybe, even better). Getting started is the hardest part. One of the good things about exercise is that there are so many options but all these choices can seem overwhelming at times. Where do you start? What infomercial looks best? Don’t worry, I plan on answering these questions and giving you all the guidelines you need to begin exercising and to continue to do so regularly through old age. I will also reveal a secret that really enhances exercise results. You won’t learn about it in an infomercial. But first, the workout.

You have made a smart choice to participate in regular exercise because exercise has been proven to improve health, promote muscle growth, and decrease body fat. Before you get too overzealous about starting, you need to keep in mind that it is important to start off safely and slowly because, believe me, the last thing you want is an injury. The very first thing you should do is make sure you’re healthy enough for exercise. If you’ve been neglecting visiting the doctor as long as you’ve been neglecting working out, you’re probably in need of a checkup and it would be wise to have a physical before doing anything too strenuous. Once you have the green light from your doctor, you should start exercising slowly and set realistic goals for yourself. You’re not going to lose 10 pounds in a week but given a few months, that goal is a realistic one. You will need to find a place to exercise. This place can be as simple as your garage, a public school or park, or you can get a little fancier and go to a gym or a private training studio. I recommend trying to find a place to work out that has weights because every fitness program should include cardiovascular and weight training. Cardiovascular training, also known as aerobic exercise (running, cycling, swimming), is any type of long duration endurance activity. The

benefits of aerobic training include: improvement of the respiratory and circulatory systems, reducing risk of diabetes, lowering blood pressure, improving depression, and burning calories, just to name a few. While all cardiovascular training has many benefits, it is also important to incorporate strength training into your exercise regimen. Strength training covers the areas that cardiovascular training doesn’t and they compliment each other perfectly. Strength training increases bone density and promotes muscle growth, which can help you age better and avoid osteoporosis, which is especially important for women. Weight training also makes an aesthetic difference in men by helping them look more muscular with broader shoulders and a smaller waist and in women by firming up everything. Don’t worry ladies, you won’t lift weights for a week and all of a sudden look like Arnold Schwarzenegger. It takes a long time to get “disgustingly buff ” and most people don’t have the natural testosterone levels to get that huge.

“Exercise has been proven to improve health.”

Now that you’re aware of the benefits of exercise and hopefully are planning to incorporate it into continues on page 48 >> SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

It’s Never Too Late continued from page 47 >>

your busy schedule, let me explain how you should go about starting. Your heart will be the main muscle that needs to be improved when you first start exercising. You will need to do some sort of walking at an incline on a treadmill, jogging, or doing interval training (alternate running and walking). Once you get in better cardiovascular shape, you’ll be shocked by how much more energetic and better you feel. Begin by walking for 25 minutes followed by 5 minutes of jogging, decrease the walking and increase the jogging each workout until you can jog for 30 minutes.

“Your heart will be the main muscle that needs to be improved when you first start exercising”

Congratulations! You are now ready to try doing full body workouts 3 times a week. Incorporate the most basic movements into your lifting routine and primarily use free weight (barbells and dumbbells), not machines. These basic movements include: bench press, military press, squat, lunges, lat pull downs, cable rows, standing straight bar bicep curl, and tricep cable pushdown. All of these exercises are very basic and cover almost every muscle group in the body. If you don’t have access to a gym, you can purchase adjustable dumbbells for your home. Adjustable dumbbells, along with bodyweight exercises, should be enough for you to start a weight-training program. By bodyweight exercises, I mean: push-ups, pull-ups, dips, squats, lunges, burpees, and a whole variety of abdominal exercises. Once you master all of the bodyweight exercises, I highly recommend you move on to the gym because, even though it’s more expensive, the gym has enough weight for you to constantly be challenged and challenging your muscles is very important to continue improving.

Tip #1: Throw out all refined sugar in your house. By refined sugar I mean any type of candy, chocolate, and white bread.

Tip #2: Try to limit how often you eat

out. The average American dines out 4-5 times per week and restaurant food is almost always more caloric than the same exact food prepared by you at home.

Tip #3: Don’t try to eat perfectly right

away because you’ll end up resorting back to your old habits and binging. Instead, try to improve a little bit each day.

Tip #4: Avoid snacking. Write down

everything you eat for 3 days and you’ll be shocked by how much you consume in just snacks. Try to have set eating times and not eat unless it’s a designated mealtime. If you absolutely can’t resist, try munching on your favorite vegetable. Vegetables have valuable nutrients and are almost always less caloric than the stereotypical “snack foods.”

Tip #5: Try to avoid alcohol. I know it’s

hard but you don’t need all those extra calories hidden in many alcoholic beverages. The negative effects of alcohol on weight loss and getting in shape are so vast that it would take a whole new article to describe them all to you. Just take my word for it, limit drinking. Hopefully you have been able to follow what I have described in this article and I hope you will use some of my advice and strive for a healthier lifestyle. If you don’t feel like doing the brainwork to put together your own routine, personal trainers can also be a source of inspiration and motivation. Best of luck in your exercise endeavors. Maybe this evening you can lace up the sneakers and go for that first walk around the neighborhood. That simple commitment is all it takes to get you on a better path in life.

So now that we’ve covered how to start exercising, let me tell you about that little secret I mentioned earlier. Ready? It’s your diet. Yep. Your diet will be the main tool to improving yourself physically. You may only exercise 4-5 times a week but you will be eating several times each day. I won’t get into a whole diet plan right now because that varies from person to person but I can give you some easy tips to improve your diet.

HIS finance Health, Wealth and Happiness a delicate balance of life! By: Monique Runge Here we are survivors of the threat of exceeding the national debt ceiling which imposed a national credit rating decline. Then immediately followed have been severe daily market losses causing worldwide investors to pull out of our financial investment markets. Most American’s are becoming increasingly concerned about their financial futures and our nation’s financial stability. And darn right so! The unfortunate fact is that many people feel somewhat trapped by their finances and are unsure of what to do and who’s opinion to trust. The big question posed to the White House is, “What is our Federal Government doing to promote a more stable economy and create jobs for those suffering from extended unemployment?” Reality is that in today’s economy it is going to be a long time before we get back to 6% unemployment. If we could create six million jobs over the next four years, we might be on par with the economy. For that to happen, we need to see a string of solid job reports, better than we have had the last nine months. As long as unemployment remains high, mortgage defaults will continue which fuel losses of revenue in property taxes which in turn fund county and city level services and public employee payrolls. Setting all this grim news aside, let’s focus on what we can do to be more resilient. “Challenge” and “change” are often welcomed but if too abundant, they can also bring a person down. Consider the following to prepare yourself to be more armed with what we can do to become both fiscally healthy and emotionally happy in today’s market and economy. To Maintain “Happiness” Surround yourself with positive influences: a challenge should be viewed as an opportunity to succeed. When presented with a situation that requires change and hard work, place a positive mindset towards it and you will have more clarity in how to

conquer the challenge. Reach out to others who could possibly assist you in your task by sharing their experiences and giving you guidance. As I always say, a “Positive Mindset” is more than half of the job. Winston Churchill once said, “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.” People who are chronically pessimistic in their world-view tend to give up more easily or not even attempt to make a health or financial behavior change compared to those with an optimistic thought process. Fortunately, negative thought patterns are curable. Nobody can control everything that happens to them in life but they can control their attitude toward life events. Stay focused on your Goals: Map out your goals. Make a list of at least three goals each for personal, professional, financial and possibly include family or spiritual. Label or number each goal and also explain what or how you are going to accomplish this goal. This will help map out the commitment. Don’t expect to do them all at once. Calendar the goals throughout the year and take them on a little bit at a time, continually marking your progress. By having this all in writing, you will not become so deterred when life events appear and get you off track. Written goals make it easy to plan action steps and monitor progress. They are also motivational. Lacking goals is like taking a trip without a map or destination. Remain flexible: Often you will have a day planned out perfectly and are going along just fine then all of a sudden a life event takes place and gets you off track.

This is a common occurrence in unstable environments. It is important to remain calm and be flexible for the changes that will appear without notice. React and move forward without giving much emotional attention. Too often people react emotionally with change. Remain open to new and different options when faced with the unexpected uncertainty. Keep organized: Maintain an organized workplace and calendar. This will help you visualize each day and the progress you make. It is important to set priorities and implement processes to keep organized. Don’t expect to remember everything, log it into your calendar and it will never get missed. If you want to take it one step further, set an alarm for each task on your calendar. Be proactive in each day: Being proactive is to be able to see a challenge coming your way and position yourself to be prepared to handle it. Be a person who will accommodate change rather than be reactive and against it. Build in some margin for error into each day by allowing additional time in between your tasks. By implementing these habits into your daily life, you will find a tremendous amount of progress and rewards even when life can get you down. What do we do to become more fiscally healthy in today’s economy? Generally our financial resources include cash savings, investments, health/life insurance and stable income. There are many other small habits that you can include into your daily life that will make a difference in your overall fiscal health. Keep a spending diary for 30 days: This will help you to see exactly where you are spending your hard earned income each month. This task in itself can be alarmingly eye opening. Use a debit and/or credit card to track ALL of your purchases. At the end of 30 days, enter all of your expenses onto a spread sheet that is categorized as housing (mortgage or rent), household (groceries, toiletries, and clothes), utilities (phone, internet, electric), auto, medical, and entertainment. Then determine where you can lean out some unnecessary expenses. continues on page 50 >> SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

Maintain a low debt-to-income ratio (DTI): What you are spending each month on consumer debt payments should be 15% or less of monthly take-home pay. Example: $375 of monthly debt payments divided by $3,000 of monthly net pay equals a consumer debt-to-income ratio of 12% (375 divided by 3,000), which is under the 15% caution zone. Maintain a cash emergency fund: We have all heard our elder’s advise us to save for a rainy day. During economic times of high unemployment, it is recommended to have twelve months cash reserves for living expenses in the event you were to be unexpectedly unemployed. It would be great if you could “actually” have this amount of cash available but that is just not reality for most people. At a minimum, you should have at least three month’s cash reserves for all expenses. Keep this money liquid in cash type bank accounts with an interest earning benefit. Such accounts are a savings account, money market fund, or short-term certificate of deposit. It is easy to establish “automated routines” for saving and investing. For example, have money directly debited each month from your bank account each payday. You won’t miss what you don’t have. Anytime you get a raise, put some or all of the extra money into savings or investments. Continuing education: Continue to learn new skills and gain knowledge. This will benefit you by always being in a forward momentum which can further grow your income sources. Plus you will be maximizing your life by utilizing that untapped grey matter. Increase your knowledge of financial topics so that you make smart financial decisions. Everyone is facing increasing health care costs which includes medical and dental services, prescription drugs, and insurance costs. These costs have historically increased faster than the rate of inflation. By becoming an informed consumer and making well thought out decisions regarding your health care, you can not only save money but receive quality care. Equally important, take care of your health. Eat well, perform regular screening exams and don’t forget the exercise. You want to remain healthy and strong to stay employable in today’s very competitive labor market. Insure Yourself: Purchase adequate life insurance to protect your family from financial stress as a result of loss of income. Also obtain long term disability insurance

to provide continued income following an accident or illness. This is one of the greatest needs when a long term illness comes into one’s life. Not Knowing Where to Get Started The secret to getting ahead with improved health and finances is simply getting started. For many people, however, the first step is the worst step, because there are no prior experiences or role models to follow. Unsure of what to do, who to call, where to go, and/ or how to do something, we often fail to act. Then the procrastination sets in to view the health and personal finance goals as being impossible. There are no excuses. Refer back to your goals map. Don’t Let Fear Get in the Way Experts often say fear is a major influence in making decisions. Fear about making any type of change can be paralyzing and cause people to freeze and take no action. The key to overcoming your fears is to acknowledge and understand them to determine if they are truly worthy of concern or simply false evidences appearing as real. Once you have identified your fear, apply your continuing education to learn move to overcome it. Knowledge is power. Often when people learn more about an issue, they are less afraid of making changes. Don’t Expect a “Quick Fix” Health and personal finance programs are both mass marketed with wonderful claims of miracle cures and quick fixes. One reason is that it is not easy to make behavior changes. Promises of quick results provide an attractive alternative, resulting in thousands of books, infomercials, and products that claim to offer fast and effective solutions to health or financial woes. Unfortunately, many product pitches are outright scams designed to defraud consumers. Don’t feel that you have to invest in an expensive plan or buy software or equipment to make your plan work. The internet has a wealth of free tools and suggestions to get on track. Don’t Remain in Denial Sad but true, many Americans are in denial and think they are doing a whole lot better than they actually are regarding both health and finances. This, of course, makes behavior change difficult when people don’t see their situation as a problem. Personalized selfassessment tools can help counteract this by indicating potential risks and how they can be reduced.

Get a Life Coach If you feel like you need someone to hold you accountable, consider getting a Coach to help you stay focused and on task. Life coaching is about assisting a client in closing the gap between where they are and where they want to be. It’s about working with someone who wants to achieve more in their life. A professional life coach will assist their client to discover what is important to them, what is missing from their life or their business and what outcomes they are looking for. They will then ask questions, listen, reflect back what they hear and challenge their client’s thinking in such a way that the client can think about new ways to create the transformation they are seeking. Through working with a professional life coach, you can achieve the outcomes they are looking for faster and more effortlessly. Coaching clients report great levels of confidence, self esteem, passion for life, enhanced relationships plus a far more focused approach to their life and to their business.

September11 Remembered th

By: Asher Corey

Routine. We always have a routine. We might not think we do, but there is an underlying current which runs through each day‌ sleep, dream, wake, eat, groom, dress, work, gym, sleep. It is this pattern, this sequence of events which brings normalcy and stability to our mundane lives. Our lives, which are no more then tiny blips of light, projected to tell the story of the world, like a movie reel which has no final cut.


September 11 Remembered th

As time passes so do the memories, the events, the purpose and the drive. We forget the things which were so important, which resonated with us to our core. We carry on in a new direction and rebound from the past like a child does when their parents divorce at a young age of four or five. To disturbing to relive, to difficult to try and understand, and to far removed to continue to fight or care. So it sits there, in its found existence, in the tiny cavernous crevasses of our minds. Occasionally we may opt to view this chapter from our past, but normally it’s a fleeting thought which passes in moments like a bullet spiraling past your head, pausing briefly at eye level, just long enough to make its presence known. However, normally we aren’t so lucky to chose how or when to remember. Generally it’s triggered by something, some accident or incident which throws off our monotonous routine. The feeling of uneasiness begins to set in, and it reminds you of those moments where you felt unsure, unsettled and dazed. That time when you were brushing your teeth and your wife told you she was leaving you. The night you sat in the hospital worried, waiting for the doctor to emerge with some news. These brutal moments, which are etched into each of our lives. We dare not remember them, but never truly forget them either.

“In that moment I remember feeling so completely shocked.” It started like any other day. The alarm went off at 5 a.m. and I dressed for my jog. I was back within an hour and proceeded with my shower. The steam filled the room as I hummed a tune and lathered my hair with mountains of shampoo. Time for coffee, check the weather and then out the door. I always seem to get behind schedule here… it’s the coffee and the introduction of television… multi tasking has never been a strength of mine. Click. The TV popped on and I could hear Katie Couric in the background. Had I missed the weather? The local segment is always on five minutes before the hour… that’s how it works. Then bam… there it was a billowing cloud of smoke, and dust emitting from a skyscraper… the noise, the panic, and the astonishment of the anchor… unnerving to say the least. The explanation of the situation was no less complicated to

understand. An airplane flew directly into the building. An airplane? As if no one would believe it they showed it repeatedly on the bottom of the screen. Over and over again. Was it a freak accident? I mean you hope it’s a freak accident… but then as one tower became engulfed in smoke, the other tower to its side was struck. In that moment I remember feeling so completely shocked. Like the world needed to stop so I would be able to actually sit down and process what I had just seen. It was in that moment where my normal routine no longer mattered, and I became transfixed to the events playing out on my screen. On September 11, 2001 the world watched in horror as the largest and deadliest international terrorist attack took place on American soil. The last time a direct U.S. territory was attacked occurred when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The goal of these 19 trained al-Qaeda terrorists was to disrupt the normalcy of the day to day American life, to make their message heard of a call for Islamic domination and to cripple the American economic hold that the U.S. had on the global economy. These individuals played our system to their advantage. Here legally on student and tourist visas and actually participating in the required programs, they assimilated into our lives for periods of weeks, months even years. They were our neighbors, our students and our colleagues.


September 11 Remembered th

The first plane hijacked was American Airlines flight 11 departing from Boston and heading to Los Angeles. This Boeing 767 left the tarmac at 8 a.m. and struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center complex at 8:46 a.m. Following this initial collision United Airlines flight 175 another Boeing 767 struck the South Tower at 9:03 a.m. On a typical day, the six building World Trade Center Complex was home to over 50,000 people. The cornerstone to this complex was the Twin Towers; two monolithic 110 story buildings built during the 70’s which housed some 400 companies from more than 25 countries. A true global marketplace, where over 125,000 tourists would come to stare in awe at its enormity. When the initial crash happened, emergency response teams took to the streets. They were in a rush to get to the top levels of the building before it was completely consumed with flames and smoke.

being played the victim and began to fight the hijackers who were attempting to take possession of this Boeing 757. At 10:07 a.m. Flight 77 crashed in a field outside Pittsburg, Pennsylvania killing everyone on board. Following these attacks, all aircrafts were grounded and President George W. Bush moved the country into a state of emergency. He put all civilians on alert and enacted some radical change within the infrastructure of the FBI most notably the Patriot Act. Bombers patrolled the skies above D.C. and New York for a series of months until the presumed threat had past. Some 50,000 National Guard Reserves were called to duty to help with the rescue and recovery of any survivors trapped in the World Trade Center wreckage. Bush vowed to find Bin Laden the leader of the al-Qaeda organization and wanted him dead or alive.

“It is time for us to reunite as a nation, move forward in a positive direction.”

What happened next was not expected. Due to the excess heat caused by the fire fueled by jet engine fluid, the central support beams of the buildings began to buckle. At 10:05 a.m. the South Tower collapsed, burying survivors and rescue workers and enveloping lower Manhattan in a mushroom-cloud of dust and debris. An attempt was made to pull the rescue workers away from the North Tower for fear that it too would collapse. Some fifteen minutes later the remaining tower folded over itself and emitted a second cloud of dust. The air was thick with haze, smoke and fire. The streets were sheeted in grey and white, while on-lookers struggled to breathe. When the air finally cleared, and the steel wreckage was exposed, the death toll surpassed 3,000 people and the landscape of Lower Manhattan was forever changed. Five hijackers over took American Airlines flight 77 a Boeing 757 heading from D.C. to Los Angeles. These five men flew the plane carrying 64 passengers into the side of the Pentagon, ironically 60 years to the day the initial construction of the building began. The final flight was United Airlines flight 93. Headed to San Francisco, the hijackers had intended to fly the plane into another target in the nation’s capital. The passengers aboard the flight decided to choose heroism over

The hunt began in Afghanistan and the first of two major wars commenced. Following the invasion of Afghanistan Bush moved his sights to Iraq against the wishes of the United Nations. It took almost ten years, two different presidents, and the deaths of countless servicemen and women to find and kill Bin Laden earlier this year. A lot has changed over the last ten years. The country has entered The Great Recession and the global marketplace is headed towards, what some economists predict, as a complete collapse of the international trade and global markets. We have begun to live more as isolationists and find ourselves fixated on cheap reality TV brought you by the E! Network. We have lost our sense of patriotism and worth and it is beginning to show. Our politicians are too concerned with getting their hands dirty to actually do anything that might bring about change for our country. A third party as emerged and is proving to be more of a hindrance than actually doing anything worth while. It is time for us to reunite as a nation, move forward in a positive direction and regain control of the global economy. Let us not fall victim to lethargic politics and let us always remember the day which set in motion all these changes, a time where our world was flipped upside down. We must remember this and never forget it, for history always seems to have a way of repeating itself. SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

Facebook-Proof Your Relationship: The Official Playbook By: DeLaine Nikaido I got mad at my boyfriend recently for neglecting to mention me in one of his posts on Facebook. Originally from Fresno, he’s a Marine and in San Diego right now. One evening, he commented that he had a good day off base – watched a movie, ate a nice dinner and enjoyed a long walk. He noted that the day would have been perfect if his friends were with him. No mention of me, his girlfriend. I was ticked. During our phone conversation later, he said that friends meant everyone, including me. I explained that I didn’t like being lumped into the friend category and would have preferred my own reference (i.e. the day would have been perfect if my girlfriend and friends were here). It occurred to me then that my guy and men, in general, could use a playbook for Facebook – a guide to keeping women happy in the wide world of social media. Want to safeguard your romance when your status goes from “Single” to “In a relationship?” HIS tells you how.

It’s no surprise that a number of university studies show that Facebook is harmful to relationships for many reasons, including fueling jealousy and providing opportunities for people to easily and quickly connect with former flames or form new relationships. According to a Loyola University study, Facebook is a factor in one in five divorces. On the bright side, you can help Facebook-proof your relationship by following these simple rules:

Show Her Love The first and foremost way to make a woman feel secure and loved is to pay attention to her. Listen to what she has to say. This applies whether in person or online. Comment on her posts on Facebook. Don’t weigh in on everything though or you’ll look too possessive or like a stalker. Certainly comment when the situation calls for it and “like” what she says from time to time. This shouldn’t be too hard. You’re in a relationship with her, so you should find her interesting.

Talk Her Up In addition to commenting on her wall, mention her on yours. Talking positively about her on your Facebook page, where your friends can see, will make her feel important to you. If you can post about the Giants win the other day, surely you can find something nice to say about your girlfriend. Acknowledging her and your relationship publicly will help validate and solidify your bond in her eyes. Don’t mention her and she’s likely to get upset. Want proof? Go back and read the first paragraph of this article.

Don’t Pay too Much Attention to Other Women Unless your wife or girlfriend knows and likes her or she’s your relative, it is best to avoid commenting too much on another woman’s wall or posts. Over commenting on another woman’s activities online may be compared to ogling her in the real world. In short, paying too much attention to other women on Facebook will likely cause your significant other to become jealous and insecure, especially if the

56

SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2011

other woman is attractive, unknown to your wife or girlfriend or happens to be your ex (and on that note, attached men should not Facebook with their exes). As my friend Jenna said, “She better look like Schmiegel from Lord of the Rings if my husband’s spending a significant amount of time (in person or online) with another woman.” Don’t Share too Much Information Comment on her wall, talk about her on yours, but by all means keep it positive and certainly don’t say things on Facebook that are better left unsaid. Details of your sex life, fights or other personal information is better kept private. It’s amusing to poke fun at one another from time to time, but do think before you post. There are some aspects of your relationship that should not be shared even among “friends” – all 500 of them.

Don’t be too Covert Protecting your privacy is understandable and prudent in this day and age of identity theft, cyber stalking and online account hijackings. There is a difference, however, between guarding your privacy and behaving in such a way on Facebook that causes your wife or girlfriend to become suspicious. Sending flirtatious, private messages to women

when you’re in a relationship is a bad idea. If you can’t say it openly then you probably shouldn’t say it at all. Blocking friends from posting on your wall, hiding your friends list and disappearing off the radar when you typically check in everywhere are examples of other behavior that your significant other may find mistrustful. Generally speaking, acting secretive and out of character online is sure to cause suspicion. After going over my list of Facebook relationship etiquette with my boyfriend simply said, “It sounds like a lot of work.” I responded, “Relationships always involve work, baby.” Then he joked about shutting down his Facebook account. “You better not or I’ll think you’re hiding something,” I teased. The moral of the story is this: Relationships do involve a certain amount of work in the form of time, attention and communication. You can comment on her wall a zillion times a day, but it’s hardly a substitute for good, old-fashioned, face-toface interaction and conversation. Sure, update your status and check in with your friends occasionally, spend time together in the real world - away from the microscope and spotlight of Facebook and your respective online friends. Otherwise, your status is sure to go from “In a Relationship” to “It’s Complicated” to “Single.”


Style VS Fades By: Ciara Norton

Imagine this scenario. You’re sitting at home on a Saturday morning wearing your favorite pair of Victoria’s Secret PINK sweatpants watching a new episode of TLC’s What Not to Wear. “Man, those people need help,” you think to yourself. When the show is finished, you do your usual morning routine: breakfast, brush your teeth and shower. When you get out of the shower you slip into your tight fitting Joe’s skinny jeans and pair it with your newest floral blouse from Anthropologie. After curling your hair and spraying just enough of Marc Jacob’s Daisy perfume, you hop in your car and head out. As your day goes on you hear on the radio that your favorite downtown boutique is having a sale on all denim…needless to say you decide to make a quick pit stop. Who doesn’t love a new pair of jeans, right? After the boutique you stop to get gas. While waiting in line you decide to browse through the latest issue of People Magazine. You gasp as you turn the page only to see the best and worst dressed. You wonder how it is that some people just have that natural ability to look good, no matter what they wear. Is it just their outfit, or is it more than that? Is it an inner ability to shine in whatever you are wearing that makes them the “best dressed?”

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” Most people use the terms fashion and style interchangeably, but the two are nowhere near the same. Fashion is something created by billboards, magazines, celebrity events and TV commercials. Fashion is part of an everchanging world where one minute you have the hottest shirt around and next thing you know it’s old news. Style on the other hand is a completely different idea. Style is your personality, your flare and how you carry yourself. A stylish person is comfortable in their clothing, not because it’s the best outfit money can buy at the moment, but because it fits them physically and emotionally. Fashion is about profit, about advertising and about selling. Style is something that cannot be sold, it cannot be created. It can only be lived. The difference is, plain and simple, that fashion is in the outfit and style is in the person.

Styles VS Fades continued from page 57 >>

In the words of the always stylish Coco Chanel, “fashion fades, only style remains the same.” If this is true, then why are we so obsessed with what people are wearing and who looked the best at the red carpet event? We are surrounded in every aspect of our lives with what beauty should look like. We have TV shows dedicated to re-vamping people’s wardrobes, giving them makeovers and criticizing the way they dress. Celebrities like Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne make money by sharing their sometimes hurtful opinions about the outfits of others. We crave the True Religion brand jeans and the other big name brands that everyone will know. We want people to look at us, to look at our outfits and size up who we are by what our fashion says.

“Fashion is made to become unfashionable.” Sorry to break it to you, but our fashion isn’t what should be doing the talking; rather our style is what should be noticed. Style isn’t something that you get from throwing on a pair of the newest Steve Madden heels or even pairing it with the best Coach bag you can find. Style is being comfortable with your body, your clothes and most importantly, with yourself. Style is deeper than fashion. Fashion is the sexiest little black dress at BCBG with a side slit that never seems to be out of date. Style is the way that you wear that sexy little black dress. The real challenge is if you can be sexy and confident without it, or does it define you? Have we been so influenced by the materialistic world we live in to think that we need these brand name and costly items to be stylish? I hope not. Coco Chanel, a woman with style, creativity and a sense of style said that “fashion is made to become unfashionable.” Style is never made; therefore it is never out of style to be comfortable, to be confident and to be you.
