The aim of Movember is to raise awareness among the general public, and men in particular, of the importance of taking charge of their health, especially where prostate cancer is concerned.

Over time, this friendly bet has transformed into a worldwide movement. Last year, 21 countries spread over 5 continents officially participated in Movember.

Are you ready to show off your ‘stache?

To some men, the major food groups include burgers, chicken wings and beer. Whether hanging out with buddies watching a game on TV or firing up the grill for a backyard barbecue, many men prefer beer as their beverage of choice in social settings. Though beer is not something many people associate with health, some might be surprised to learn that beer does provide some notable health benefits. Beer should always be consumed in moderation, but beer fans should know that those cold ones aren’t just refreshing but potentially healthy as well.

Builds bone strength A 2009 study from researchers at Tufts University determined older men and women who consumed one or two drinks daily had higher bone density. Beer contains silicon, which has been linked to bone health. Of the various types of beer, pale ale has been shown to have the highest concentration of silicon, so beer drinkers might want to enjoy a pale ale when having their next beer. Keep in mind, however, having more than two drinks has been linked to increased risk of bone fractures, so stick to one or two. Antioxidant boost Beer contains flavonoids, which are natural antioxidants that help to protect the body from disease. Dark beer contains more flavonoids than other varieties. Beer also contains vitamin B6. This is essential to making hemoglobin, the red protein in blood that helps ferry oxygen around in the body. More oxygen helps muscles work more efficiently and has other health benefits.

Lowers heart disease risk Dark beers have roughly one gram of soluble fiber in each 12-ounce serving. Various research suggests that consuming adequate amounts of soluble fiber through a healthy diet can help lower LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol in the blood. Any source of alcohol, including beer or wine, increases the level of good cholesterol in the blood, too. Hops and the malt used in beer making also provide polyphenols, which are hearthealthy antioxidants. Reduces risk for kidney stones According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, compounds in hops could help slow the release of calcium from bones, which may prevent kidney stone formation. A study in Finland singled out beer among other alcoholic drinks, finding that each bottle of beer men drank daily lowered their risk of developing kidney stones by 40 percent. Researchers suggest beer’s high water content helps keep the kidneys working and flushing out the system.

Stress is a significant part of many people’s lives. Men and women experience stress for a variety of reasons, but the rigors of managing a career and a family are something many men and women point to as their biggest causes of stress.

Take a proactive approach to stress. Many people can trace their stress to taking on more they can handle. This can occur at the office, in your personal life or, as is the case for many people, a combination of both. Stretching yourself too thinly can make you vulnerable to stress. Even if one particular thing like work or family is not stressing you out, it’s important to recognize that stress can also be caused by a combination of things. Before stress even has a chance to settle in, make an effort to give yourself more down time and do not stretch yourself too thin.

A guide to everything you need to make this holiday season merry and bright

November 28, 2013

The skies near Grand National are aglow as the second annual National Village Christmas Lights Show provides Auburn and Opelika families with a local and free opportunity to view a synchronized display of Christmas lights throughout the holiday season.

If You Go: The address is 2809 National Village Parkway in Opelika. The show will run each night through Jan. 5 from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. For more information on the National Village Christmas Lights Show, visit www.nationalvillage. com or call 334-749-8165.

Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller and his family will officially flip the switch at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29, bringing to life traditional Christmas scenes, fun characters like Aubie and, of course, Santa and his reindeer in this lighting display made from more than 185,000 lights. The lighting ceremony is open to the public and will include other local dignitaries. The National Village Christmas Lights Show will run from 5 to 10 p.m. each night through Jan. 5. “It’s beautiful,” said Barbara Patton, president of the Opelika Chamber of Commerce. “I would recommend that everyone go out and see this light show. It’s a wonderful addition to Opelika’s Christmas events and I expect that it will grow every year.” Viewers will experience the synchronized display of various Christmas figurines that follows an 18-minute loop, accompanied by Christmas music accessed over a special music channel. Cars may

Many people harbor strong opinions with regard to which type of Christmas tree they want to purchase. Some cannot live without a natural, freshly-cut Christmas tree, while others prefer the convenience of artificial trees. Those who insist on a natural tree might want to consider the following tips when buying what’s likely their biggest decorative item of the holiday season.

Ask when the tree was cut down. Precut trees may be cut down weeks before they’re sold, so chances are the tree was cut down much earlier than you think. This doesn’t mean the tree won’t make it through the holiday season, but a tree that was cut several weeks ago should have some of its bottom trunk removed before it’s placed in the stand. This will make it easier for the tree to consume water. This step likely isn’t necessary if the tree was cut down the same day you bring it home. Have the tree shaken before taking it home. A tree should be shaken in a shaker before you put it in your car and bring it home. A shaker removes any debris from the tree, which can save you the trouble of

Participants are urged to park, tune in to the music and tour the show with family and friends. Visitors may view the show from their car or from the nearby grass field. The figures and lights now used in the National Village event for many years drew crowds of up to 30,000 to the home of Steve Lang on Fontaine Lane in Auburn where the light display became a Christmas tradition for area families.

an equity partner with the Retirement Systems of Alabama in the development of National Village, purchased the lights and moved the show to the community that lies adjacent to Grand National Golf Course and the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel & Conference Center at Grand National. “I grew up going to that event on Fontaine Lane every year,” said Don Conner, who then made it a holiday tradition for his three children. Conner and his brother, Ab, are partners at Conner Bros. “When Mr. Lang sold his home, we took over the lights and now we use our warehouse to store them,” added Conner. “The show contains over 185,000 lights, so it is quite a production and expense to re-lamp and create new characters to enhance the show each year,” he said. Work begins in September in preparation for a late November opening day, he noted. “Children in particular will love this show,” said Conner.

cleaning up all of those dead needles from your living room floor later on. Have the tree wrapped before taking it home. A tree should also be wrapped in twine before taking it home. The twine should be tight enough to keep the tree’s branches from blowing in the wind when you attach the tree to the top of your vehicle. If possible, keep the tree wrapped in twine as you place it in the stand. This makes the tree easier to control. Choose the right location. When looking for the right place to set up your natural tree, it’s best to choose a spot that’s cool and free of drafts. The tree should not be placed near heat sources, including appliances, fireplaces or vents, because such heat sources create a safety hazard and can make it difficult for the tree to retain moisture. There should also be ample space between the top of the tree and the ceiling.

Place some covering on the ground beneath the tree. Even a freshly cut natural tree will shed needles over the course of the holiday season. Before placing the stand in the location you’ve chosen, put some type of covering, such as a tree bag, beneath the stand so it’s easier to gather all those needles once the holiday season has ended. Remember that natural trees are thirsty. People who have never had a natural Christmas tree in the past might be surprised at just how thirsty natural trees get. The stand’s reservoir should have lots of water, which should never dip below the stump. If the water dips below the stump, you might be forced to cut a little more off the bottom of the trunk to ensure the tree will make it through the holiday season. That can be a hassle once the tree has been decorated, so be sure to check the water in the reservoir at least once per day to maintain adequate water levels.

Did you know?

The first Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center was erected in 1931, two years before the opening of Rockefeller Plaza. The tradition began when construction workers hard at work on building Rockefeller Center decorated a roughly 20-foot tall balsam fir tree on Christmas Eve in 1931. Strings of cranberries and tin cans were among the items used to decorate the tree. While there was no tree in 1932, the first official tree was unveiled in 1933 in Rockefeller Plaza, and the lighting ceremony was broadcast over NBC Radio. The 10-ton Norway Spruce erected in 1999, which measured 100-feet tall, remains the tallest tree ever erected at Rockefeller Center. The tradition of the Rockefeller Center tree continues to evolve to this day, but the evergreen it is no longer lit with incandescent light bulbs. LED bulbs that consume a fraction of the energy of traditional bulbs are the bulbs of choice now. In addition, in 2007 Rockefeller Center partnered with Habitat for Humanity, who used the tree after it was taken down to furnish lumber for home construction.

L

ike most expectant parents, Joe and Catherine Johnston were excited about the birth of their first child. Then the unexpected happened. On March 11, 2008, several weeks before the baby’s due date, Catherine was rushed to the hospital with complications from a rare medical condition. One day later, after an emergency Cesarean section, Joe was a single father, faced with the prospect of bringing up his daughter alone. To make matters worse, the baby, named Catherine in honor of the mother who would never raise her, was not doing well. Because of her prematurity and a lack of oxygen at birth, she spent the first nine days of her life in the neonatal intensive care unit at UAB Hospital. For three of those days, the newborn was under a cooling blanket to minimize damage to her brain. Still grappling with his wife’s sudden death, Joe was further destroyed when one doctor informed him that Catherine would be blind and never walk or talk.

“I was totally devastated,” Joe said. “It was like I was living a nightmare.” When Catherine was finally allowed to go home, help was waiting.

“I had no idea what to do. We followed their lead and they pointed us in the right direction.” Joe’s mother, Sonja, a retired schoolteacher in Bullock County, dropped everything she was doing and moved in with her son to assist him in caring for Catherine. Soon thereafter, the family learned about Alabama’s Early Intervention System (EI) and met District Early Intervention Coordinator Tania Baldwin, who connected them with the Cahaba Early Intervention Center. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Catherine now receives occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and educational services through the center.

Tania also referred the family to Children’s Rehabilitation Service, where she has a care coordinator and attends Orthopedic Clinic and Feeding clinic. Despite the doctor’s prediction, Catherine is now able to crawl, pull herself up, eat, and talk. She’s a happy baby, who loves people and is surrounded by a huge support system, including four sets of godparents who visit regularly. Sonja said she is amazed by the support the family has received from the community. “Usually after a tragedy hits, people just bring food over, and they don’t stay involved,” she said. “That is not the case here. They all have said they intend to be around for a long time.” As for Joe, he’s grateful for EI.

fter Josiah Cody was born, his mother knew immediately that something was different about him. Shortly after his birth, Josiah, now 3, was diagnosed with Down syndrome. He had all of the characteristics. He had the distinct facial features, the upward slanting eyes. He also had the heart problems associated with the syndrome and underwent three heart surgeries as an infant. “I didn’t know how I was going to take care of him,” Felita Cody said. Even with the youngster’s health problems, Felita’s anxiety about being able to care for her son did not last long. She learned about Alabama’s Early Intervention System (EI) and immediately received services through the Vaughn-Blumberg Center in Dothan. Through EI, Stephanie Wilkerson served as Josiah’s care coordinator, Paige Wells as his physical therapist, Amber Jones as his speech therapist, and Andrea Bergman as his occupational therapist.

“They were very caring and showed a lot of compassion,” Felita said. “If I had to put them on the scale of one to 10, they would get a 10.” The team came to her house every week to work with Josiah in his natural environment.

“I know I couldn’t have made it without them. I can’t thank God enough for blessing me with the staff of early intervention.” He learned to sit by himself, stand by himself, and was even walking early. When the specialists were not there, Felita worked with her son. “We worked together,” she said. “Every week, there was progress.” Although Josiah has since “aged out” of early intervention and moved into the school system, Felita is still involved with EI. She is the chairperson of the District V Early Intervention Council, which works to raise awareness of EI and

its services and connects families to resources, trainings and workshops. She also still attends the yearly Early Intervention Conference. Outside of EI, she is part of a group called FRIENDS (Families Reaching, Influencing, Educating, and Networking for Down Syndrome), an organization that strives to provide support for families with individuals with Down syndrome; connect with other families, friends and advocates; and educate others about the condition. And, she constantly tells people about EI. “I know I couldn’t have made it without them,” Felita said. “I can’t thank God enough for blessing me with the staff of early intervention.” As for Josiah, he is very social and outgoing. Felita said she believes he has a bright future ahead of him.

Basic Purposes The Organized Community Action Program is a self-help agency which provides opportunities by providing decent housing, food, clothing, health assistance, counseling, referrals, education and job placement. OCAP’s goal is to seek solutions to the social and economic problems related to poverty. It is through joint efforts among our counties that OCAP can provide its services. OCAP provides programs to help low-income, disabled, elderly and unemployed persons to meet their basic needs when they have no available means for themselves. Trained personnel provide these persons with necessities such as food, clothing, shelter, energy assistance, referrals to other OCAP program areas, and referrals to other agencies if OCAP does not have the means to meet their needs. Workshops and counseling services are provided to help low-income persons make better use of their available income.

u Board of Directors OCAP’s Board of Directors consists of 3 members from each county for a total of 21 members. The total membership is equally divided into three categories: public officials, representatives of the poor, and representatives of the private sector.

TROY ­

Become An International Friend

An international student can produce life-long friendships. International students at Troy University come from over 60 countries and are eager to meet Americans. Students enjoy visiting in homes, sharing holidays or taking short trips. Single persons, families with children, retired couples and single parents have all experienced these wonderful opportunities.

UNIVERSITY

What does an International Friend do?

The American host determines the range of activities that best suits their schedule and lifestyle. Becoming an International Friend allows Americans to learn about other languages and traditions, while the host shares the diverse culture in which we live. A summer picnic with Southern fried chicken and grits, white sandy beaches at Destin, the Pike County Pioneer Museum and Thanksgiving dinner may all seem typical to Alabamians. Most international students would love to share any of these activities with you.

Why do students want a Homestay? International students are a very long way from their home. Usually students have never traveled outside their home country. They are curious and nervous about American education and culture. Living with an American family helps.

What are the student’s responsibilities? The student is both a guest and a member of the household. Usually the student will pay rent and should not be expected to perform household chores or babysitting. Routine student expectations: • Keep their private living space clean • Keep common living space clean when student uses it (living room, kitchen, etc.) • Pay agreed upon monthly rent on time • Respect household rules as agreed upon • Respect host family’s religion and/or culture differences.

www.troy.edu

Please return this form to the following address or call 334-808-6146 for more information. International Programs • Attn: International Student Services • 127 Pace Hall • Troy, AL 36082

Are my expenses covered? Homestay families may negotiate a monthly rent to cover room and board expenses. Additional costs should be negotiated as the need arises.

Required provisions and expectations: • Clean, safe and pleasant home • Private bedroom and study area • Host meals as agreed upon • Access to TV, internet and laundry • Respect of student’s religion and/or cultural differences

q Homestay q International Friends q Both

Completing the application does not obligate you to the Homestay program. A representative from Troy University’s International Programs will contact you to set up an appointment to discuss the program further. At that time, you will have an opportunity to make a commitment.

Which program are you interested in?

Complete the attached Homestay Interest Application and detach it from the brochure.

What are my responsibilities? The international student becomes a member of the host family, living full-time with the family for a designated period of time. A host family must have a genuine interest to share American culture with an international student and a willingness to care for the well-being of the student.

Phone ___________________________ E-mail _________________________

Homestay families open their homes to a student while the student is studying at Troy University. Homestay provides international students with a personal look at American culture and gives exposure to the English language. The length of the Homestay is agreed upon between the host family and the student. It can be for a weekend, a holiday, a semester or a whole year.

How can my family participate? Single-parent families, retired couples, families with young children or teenagers have all had successful hosting experiences.

Will you answer?

Homestay & International Friend Interest Application

Becoming an International Friend to an international student does not obligate you to provide housing to the student. Housing commitments are made through our Homestay Program.

UNIVERSITY

How is the International Friends Program different from Homestay?

TROY ­

Complete the application and check the box “International Friends.” A representative from Troy University’s International Programs will contact you and assist in matching Americans with international students.

Troy University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, bachelor’s, master’s and education specialist degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions regarding the accreditation status of the institution or if there is evidence that appears to support Troy University’s significant noncompliance with a requirement or standard.

How do I choose an International Friend?

International Programs Attn: International Student Services 127 Pace Hall Troy, AL 36082

How long is my commitment?

The length of commitment to an international student depends on the relationship established. Normally, a formal commitment is for one academic year. Sometimes the relationship is sustained throughout the time the student is studying at Troy University. The decision is up to you and the international student.

Wizard of Oz

The Council of the Munchkins S

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

he was awakened by a shock, so sudden and severe that if Dorothy had not been lying on the soft bed she might have been hurt. As it was, the jar made her catch her breath and wonder what had happened; and Toto put his cold little nose into her face and whined dismally. Dorothy sat up and noticed that the house was not moving; nor was it dark, for the bright sunshine came in at the window, flooding the little room. She sprang from her bed and with Toto at her heels ran and opened the door. The little girl gave a cry of amazement and looked about her, her eyes growing bigger and bigger at the wonderful sights she saw. The cyclone had set the house down very gently--for a cyclone--in the midst of a country of marvelous beauty. There were lovely patches of greensward all about, with stately trees bearing rich and luscious fruits. Banks of gorgeous flowers were on every hand, and birds with rare and brilliant plumage sang and fluttered in the trees and bushes. A little way off was a small brook, rushing and sparkling along between green banks, and murmuring in a voice very grateful to a little girl who had lived so long on the dry, gray prairies.

While she stood looking eagerly at the strange and beautiful sights, she noticed coming toward her a group of the queerest people she had ever seen. They were not as big as the grown folk she had always been used to; but neither were they very small. In fact, they seemed about as tall as Dorothy, who was a well-grown child for her age, although they were, so far as looks go, many years older.

Three were men and one a woman, and all were oddly dressed. They wore round hats that rose to a small point a foot above their heads, with little bells around the brims that tinkled sweetly as they moved. The hats of the men were blue; the little woman’s hat was white, and she wore a white gown that hung in pleats from her shoulders. Over it were sprinkled little stars that glistened in the sun like diamonds. The men were dressed in blue, of the same shade as their hats, and wore well-polished boots with a deep roll of blue at the tops. The men, Dorothy thought, were about as old as Uncle Henry, for two of them had beards. But the little woman was doubtless much older. Her face was covered with wrinkles, her hair was nearly white, and she walked rather stiffly. When these people drew near the house where Dorothy was standing in the doorway, they paused and whispered among themselves, as if afraid to come farther. But the little old woman walked up to Dorothy, made a low bow and said, in a sweet voice: “You are welcome, most noble Sorceress, to the land of the Munchkins. We are so grateful to you for having killed the Wicked Witch of the East, and for setting our people free from bondage.” Dorothy listened to this speech with wonder. What could the little woman possibly mean by calling her a sorceress, and saying she had killed the Wicked Witch of the East? Dorothy was an innocent, harmless little girl, who had been carried by a cyclone many miles from home; and she had never killed anything in all her life. But the little woman evidently expected her to answer; so Dorothy said, with hesitation, “You are very kind, but there must be some mistake. I have not killed anything.” “Your house did, anyway,” replied the little old woman, with a laugh, “and that is the same thing. See!” she continued, pointing to the corner of the house. “There are her two feet, still sticking out from under a block of wood.”

My newest project is a book about design basics. This is one of the pages that I have been working on formatting. There are currently chapters about color and type. Each chapter has it’s own color for the bar at the top as well as the chapter title page. This example shows the title page for the colors chapter as well as a sample spread from that chapter. The color for the type chapter is orange.

Dorothy looked, and gave a little cry of fright. There, indeed, just under the corner of the great beam the house rested on, two feet were sticking out, shod in silver shoes with pointed toes.

Primary Colors

Primary Colors

The first thing that you need to get through your mind is that red, yellow, and blue are not the primary colors. They never have been and never will be (regardless of what your elementary teacher may say).

Colors

So what are the primary colors? That depends on whether you are talking about pigment or light. The primary colors for pigment are cyan, magenta, and yellow. These three mix together to make all of the other colors. If you mix all three in equal proportions, you will get black.

Cyan

The primary colors for light are red, green, and blue. When these are all mixed together, they make white. The easiest way to see an example of this would be spraying a little bit of water on an old tube television. You will see that the screen breaks up into these three primary colors.
