IT’S BEEN AGES! (continued): • According to Greek mythology, there are several stages of human existence on Earth. During the Golden Age, the first race of mortals, dubbed the golden race (meaning good and noble), was created by the gods and held conversations with them. There was an endless abundance of food and no need for agriculture. This age was characterized by peace, harmony, and prosperity. The mortals lived to an old age while maintaining their youthful appearance, and eventually died very peaceful deaths. The Silver Age followed, with the mortals described as foolish and immature, who refused to worship the gods and goddesses. According to mythology, this so angered Zeus, he destroyed the silver race. The mortals of the mythological Bronze Age were hardened and tough, caught up in wars. This race was undone by their own violence. The Heroic Age was the period of heroes who fought at Troy. In the Iron Age, pain and evil ran rampant, with humans living in toil and misery, and with no shame over wrongdoing.

Today, the Toronto-based company publishes novels in 31 languages on six continents, with offices in Japan, Australia, Sweden, Spain, Greece, Brazil, and Turkey, among many others. Since its founding, more than six billion books have been sold. • The distinctive sound of the harmonica is achieved by blowing air into the instrument’s reed chambers. Each chamber has multiple reeds of varying sizes that vibrate when air is blown in or drawn out. Longer reeds will produce deep lower sounds, while the short reeds make higher pitches. The harmonica was developed in Europe in the early 1800s.

Enjoy A Warm Bamboo-Fusion Massage Bamboo-Fusion massage combines the techniques of Swedish massage and the benefits of soothing heat with the energy of bamboo; the result is a relaxing and invigorating massage. Smooth pieces of bamboo, of various shapes and sizes, are heated with an electric pad and then used to literally roll and knead away aches, pains, tension and stress in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. The warmth of the bamboo increases the suppleness of the outer layer of muscle, allowing for penetration into the deep muscle layers.

Tip Week TAXES

Although most of us hate doing (and paying) taxes, it is a necessary expense to fund all the public goods and services we consume. I once heard of a wealthy person being asked, “What is the single most efficient thing that you’ve ever spent your money on?” His answer? “Taxes.” While that instinctively makes me say, “No way,” the more I reflect on it, the more I think he may have a point. This tax season I want to encourage you to hire someone to look over your taxes and look for any deductions and refunds to which you may be entitled. Many people choose not to spend money on a tax professional, fearing it will cost them more than they will save. But this is often not the case. And the size of your refund just might be a pleasant surprise when it’s all said and done. Even though taxes may provide value for the dollars you spend on them, it’s still prudent to stretch your hard earned dollars by limiting the taxes you have to pay. Charitable donations are an excellent way to avoid paying taxes. Did you know that you can get back as a

Page 5

tax deduction almost 42% of every donation dollar you give? It’s a great way to save money while blessing a worthy charity in the process whatever amount you give, you end up getting nearly half of it back! Giving to charity now won’t help for your 2012 tax return as giving had to be receipted by Dec 31, 2012. But you can get started on next year’s tax deductions! My Tip of the Week is simply an encouragement to be generous with charities and creative when you’re doing your taxes. You might be surprised by an unexpected refund!

DVD Reviews

“THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN, PART 2”: This is it for fans of the enormously successful movie franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s novels, the finale ... and the theatrical box-office take proves that devotees turned out in force for it. Now parents - and both vampires now, too - Bella and Edward (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson) do their best to protect their fast-growing daughter (Mackenzie Foy) from enemies, resulting in a genuinely epic battle well-staged by director Bill Condon. Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Kellan Lutz and Billy Burke are among the other series regulars who all get their swan-song moments here. DVD extras: two “makingof ” documentaries; audio commentary by Condon; music video. ***

“THE MASTER”: Oscar-nominated for all of its key performances, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s compelling and challenging drama casts Joaquin Phoenix as a troubled World War II veteran who falls under the spell of an influential man (the superb Philip Seymour Hoffman, in the sort of acting job it’s hard to imagine anyone else doing) determined to launch a new social movement. The lessons go only so far before the student rebels. Amy Adams plays the self-styled leader’s wife in a cast that also includes Ambyr Childers, Jesse Plemons (“Friday Night Lights”) and Laura Dern. DVD extras: extended and deleted scenes. *** “CHASING MAVERICKS”: In the same manner as “Soul Surfer” not that long ago, this drama tells the true, earnest story of a young person pitted against nature ... the wet brand of it, more specifically. Jonny Weston plays Jay Moriarity, a surfer determined to conquer one of the biggest waves there is. He seeks guidance from an expert in the sport (Gerard Butler), and their connection ultimately goes much deeper than riding a board. The film was helmed by two top directors, Michael Apted and Curtis Hanson. Co-stars include Elisabeth Shue and Abigail Spencer. *** “CHICKEN WITH PLUMS”: Featured at several film festivals, this fanciful story of a violinist and his recollections takes unusual forms in the hands of two filmmakers who also displayed their technique in the acclaimed “Persepolis,” Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud. Satrapi’s graphic novel is the source of the tale, in which the musician (Mathieu Amalric, “Quantum of Solace”) mourns the loss of his cherished violin and decides there’s nothing worth continuing to live for. His dreams may indicate differently, though. Isabella Rossellini also appears. DVD extras: audio commentary by, and question-and-answer session with, Satrapi and Paronnaud. *** “THE CLIENT LIST: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON”: After starring in a TV movie of the same name, Jennifer Love Hewitt retooled the concept a bit and (as both star and producer) came up with a hit Lifetime series. She plays a Texas wife and mother in desperate need of income after her husband leaves her, so she works in a spa where she tries to resist incentives to provide “extra services” to the clientele. Loretta Devine and Cybill Shepherd respectively play the Hewitt character’s boss and mother, with Colin Egglesfield (“Something Borrowed”) as the masseuse’s ex-brother-in-law, who wants to remain in her life. DVD extras: outtakes; deleted scenes. *** “LIBERACE: THE CANDELABRA COLLECTION”: There’s been a lot of talk lately about the showman whose flamboyant style was backed by true piano mastery, since Michael Douglas plays him in an upcoming HBO movie. It’s the real deal who’s on view here, though, with two holiday television specials included in the menu of offerings that prove why the knowingly flashy Liberace was such a star attraction throughout his career. ***

Tidbits of Kelowna FAMOUS WOMEN OF THE WORLD:

MARIE CURIE

Often referred to as the “Mother of Modern Physics,” Marie Curie was the first famous woman scientist in the modern world. Here’s your opportunity to learn more about the woman who made many significant contributions to the research of radioactivity. • Born in Poland in 1867 to a physics teacher father and an educator mother, Marie enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris for her higher education. She graduated first in the class of physics and in second place in mathematics, and immediately began work as a researcher. • Alongside her fellow researcher husband, Pierre Curie, the pair studied the elements and radioactivity. Marie was the first to discover radioactivity in an element, thorium. She and Pierre went on to discover two new elements, polonium (which she named for her native Poland) and radium. As a result of her 1903 dissertation on radium, she was awarded a doctorate in science, the first ever for a woman in all of Europe. The Curies received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903 for their work, and Marie became the first woman to be awarded this prestigious prize. Their prize winnings were poured back into their research. • The year 1904 was an eventful one for Marie – she was awarded a professorship at the Sorbonne, established the use of radiation therapy for cancer, and gave birth to her second child. Just two years later, Pierre was run over by a horse-drawn carriage in Paris and died, leaving Marie a widow at age 37 with two young daughters to raise alone. Shortly afterward, she was awarded Pierre’s department chair position at the Sorbonne, becoming the first woman ever to hold a chair there, and the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne. Although she was offered a national pension following Pierre’s death, she declined it. • Marie’s second Nobel Prize came along in 1911, this time in the field of Chemistry, for her isolation of pure radium. This set her apart as the only woman to win the Nobel Prize in two different fields up to that date. This time, Marie donated her prize money toward equipping World War I ambulances with portable X-ray machines, as well as establishing 200 permanent X-ray stations in France and Belgium.
