FOOTBALL – THANKSGIVING ELECTIONS As we move into fall the college and professional football seasons are in full swing. Some Florida teams are doing well, while others are still in rebuilding mode. The Miami Dolphins seem to be playing competitive on the field, yet they have fallen a bit short in a few games. Let’s hope the team will come together enough to make it to the playoffs. I am often amazed with the impact of the game on people, where a pigskin is battled for and carried from end to end. It is a contest that unites a community and at the same time, sometimes divides individuals. It conjures up pride and school spirit, while spawning rivalries which carry on for years after one leaves their alma mater. Still, come the fourth Thursday in November, many of us will be either playing the game with family or watching it on the television as we celebrate the holiday tradition. Thanksgiving has been celebrated for centuries. The first dates back to 1621, commemorating the long awaited harvest in a Massachusetts colony. George Washington was the first president to declare the holiday, in 1789. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, seeking to lengthen the Christmas shopping season, proclaimed Thanksgiving the third Thursday in November. Controversy followed, and Congress passed a joint resolution in 1941 decreeing that Thanksgiving should fall on the fourth Thursday of November, where it remains. I believe this holiday provides us an opportunity to reflect on the year and hopefully prepares everyone for the one ahead. It gives us the chance

to be grateful for the triumphs and tribulations which shape us and spawn the building blocks for our future. It’s a time to come together as a family and community, creating the energy to elevate our ability to achieve more than we ever thought possible. It is an occasion to remember those who have gone before us and reflect on their legacy. I hope you make the most of this holiday, enjoy the time and make it the best ever! As Lincoln said, “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” Speaking of making it count, I urge you to vote on November 6th. There are many elected offices and important constitutional amendments on ballot, so I also encourage you to learn about the candidates and review the issues which will impact you directly in the years ahead. To you I say, ponder the words of

NOVEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

Barbara Boxer, “I am sure that every one of my colleagues - Democrat, Republican, and Independent - agrees with that statement. That in the voting booth, every one is equal.” To those with the fortune of being elected, I suggest you heed the thoughts of President Ronald Reagan who said, “There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” Have a Great Month and I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. As Always, Enjoy the Lifestyle!™

MUD RUN CRAZE

MUSIC

MUMFORD AND SONS

After their smash debut Sigh No More, which won British Album of the Year and Billboard Music Awards Top Alternative Album among other awards, Mumford & Sons have a new release Babel. Mumford & Sons uses bluegrass and folk instrumentation, such as a banjo, upright bass, mandolin and piano, played with a rhythmic style based in alternative rock and folk. The foursome, including Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, “Country” Winston Marshall, and Ted Dwane – who all play a variety of instruments, bonded over their shared love of “rootsy” music. Look for Babel on the charts, as the band already played on Saturday Night Live to an appreciative crowd and have launched a new tour – U.S. dates will be announced.

It’s just what it sounds like – a mud run! Runners slog through miles of mud and confront a variety of obstacles (which make you climb, jump over fire pits, crawl, swing and sometimes crash), that are most definitely going to test your strength and endurance. Also referred to as Adventure Racing, these events are anything but normal – one event in Florida even has zombies on the course attacking racers. The races are designed to be tough but exhilarating and mostly fun! They’re usually 5k in length and have their rewards – like free beers at the finish line and many have all-out bashes following the races with live music, food and drink. They even have shower stalls set up so racers can clean off and change into new clothes. Speaking of clothing, it’s smart to be prepared for one of these races with trail running sneakers and water proof socks made of high-tech fabric, shorts and shirts that you don’t mind getting wet and muddy and maybe some type of support and protection for your knees and elbows, like Ace bandages or some other sort of wrap to protect them while you are crawling and climbing. Also, don’t go alone; take a few friends and form a team. Run together, help each other when the obstacles get demanding and cheer for each other. Some teams even dress up in goofy outfits like dresses over top of their racing clothes or wear serious military style gear.

Located on the Mezzanine Level of the Au-Rene Theater, the new Club Level offers patrons an exclusive experience.

With a view of the performance from the stage view windows within the lounge, guests will enjoy a truly unique theater setting. “In what we believe is the first of its kind in a performing arts center, the Club Level at the Broward Center offers a unique entertainment experience for South Florida theatergoers,” said Broward Center President and CEO Kelley Shanley. “With a private lounge offering light fare and cocktails adjacent to oversize, plush theater seating and other top-shelf amenities, the Club Level is designed to complement the social aspects of attending a performance. We’re delighted to introduce this innovative concept to our audiences.

health & wellness HEALTHY THANKSGIVING SNACKS

THANKSGIVING EDITION It’s November and that means Thanksgiving is drawing near – with its glorious foods tempting family and friends to pig out. But it’s possible to eat healthy during thanksgiving. It just takes a little willpower and a fresh approach when preparing the meal.

5

TIPS FOR A HEALTHIER THANKSGIVING

Turkey: When it comes to eating turkey stick with the white turkey meat with the skin removed, and take it easy on the gravy. A three ounce portion will save you 50 calories and four grams of fat compared to dark meat. Stuffing: Avoid white bread stuffing. Use multi-grain bread or whole wheat. And replace the chicken broth with low sodium broth. Also, don’t be afraid to add some fruit and toasted nuts to the stuffing. Cranberry sauce: Check out homemade cranberry sauce recipes. They tend to have much less sugar than canned cranberries Mashed potatoes: Use skim milk or low sodium chicken broth instead of whole milk or cream when whipping the potatoes, and cut down on the butter. Potatoes have a wonderful flavor; they don’t need a half stick of butter. Or make sweet potatoes. Dessert: Pumpkin pie is a staple on Thanksgiving and it is surprisingly healthy when compared to other desserts and it is loaded with beta carotene. Blueberry and Cherry pie are also good choices.

GO TAKE A HIKE It doesn’t have to be a hike, but after you’re done eating and cleaning up after your Thanksgiving feast, it’s a great time to take a walk. A nice relaxed walk with family and friends is an excellent way to wrap up your festivities; it’s not only exercise it’s a bonding experience.

14

NOVEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

Most people think of Thanksgiving as an all day feast with hors d’oeuvres and snacks followed by the main meal. Try these healthy snacks to cut down on your caloric intake: Fresh fruit: An array of colorful fresh fruit such as strawberries, slices of apples and pears, melon and grapes create a beautiful presentation – and they’re tasty. Cheeses: Try low fat cheeses, such as cheddar and jack cheese. Or you could put out some brie to pair with the fruit. Dips: Make your favorite dips but use fat free Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. And instead of fatty chips, cut up and serve fresh vegetables for the dip. Nuts: Nuts have abundant amounts of protein, fiber, healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. Try walnuts, almonds, pistachios and pecans.

MATTERS

TURKEY CONTROVERSY: DEEP FRYING Some turkey enthusiasts believe that deep frying a turkey is the best possible way to keep the bird moist and delicious. But deep frying food is a no-no, right? Well, if you use 100% peanut oil you could be limiting the poor health impact of frying. The American Heart Association says, “Most of the fats you eat should be the “better” fats – monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats.” Vegetable oils (canola oil, olive oil, peanut oil, and sunflower oil) are recommended sources of these fats. A 4-ounce serving of roasted turkey has 241 calories and 12 grams of fat while a 4-ounce serving of turkey deep-fried in peanut oil comes in at 253 calories and under 14 grams of fat, a slight difference. You can purchase turkey deep fryers at Amazon, Home Depot and Target.

ELEGANCE with an edge N

amed after the famous corner at the end of the straight-away at Le Mans, where Bentley vehicles have roared to six victories, the Mulsanne exhibits Bentleys sporting pedigree and its unmatched flair for luxury. When first introducing this vehicle Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen of Bentley remarked: “The challenge we set our engineers was to create a new, grand Bentley that would stand as the pinnacle of British luxury motoring, offering the world’s most exclusive driving experience. They have responded to this challenge with real passion, and the result is a luxury grand tourer that sets new standards in terms of comfort, effortless performance and handcrafted refinement – the very qualities for which Bentley is renowned.“ And new to the 2013 model is a standard ultra-slim, tilt-opening sunroof with tinted glass, which draws light into the cabin. The sunroof is also equipped with a color-matched Alcantara blind that silently closes at the touch of a button. Other standard features on the Bentley Mulsanne include: s 6.7 liter twin-turbocharged V8, producing 505 hp and 752 lbs. ft. torque s Drive Dynamic Control: four driver-selectable settings – Three standard modes: Bentley, Sport and Comfort and a fourth mode “Custom” allows the driver to tune the system to his or her driving style s Paintwork applied and polished by hand to a mirror-finish: A choice of 28 paint colors customized for the Mulsanne s Hand-selected leather to all trimmed surfaces including seating, console, door panels and more

s Front seats with 12-way electrical adjustment, including lumbar support, two memory positions and adjustable heating s 8” high-resolution color screen to display “infotainment” and vehicle systems information, which is automatically concealed behind a veneered panel when not in use s Central Multi Media Interface (MMI) rotary controller with convenience keys for instant access to the main system of menus: Navigation, Telephone, Radio, Media, (including DVD’s when fitted) Tone, Information and Car systems s Satellite navigation system integrated in car’s hard disc, ensuring fast route calculation. Four map configurations in system including 3-D topographical maps and city views and day/night display modes s Mulsanne audio system with 14 speakers – two subwoofers, powered through six channels with digital sound processing s Full iPod and MP3 player compatibility including full-color album art display and video playback s Telephone system with Bluetooth wireless connectivity

But that’s not all; Bentley is also introducing the new Mulsanne Mulliner edition. This Mulsanne is a distinctive and sportier interpretation, blending a range of eye-catching design features such as unique painted or polished 21-inch wheels with race-derived, titanium fasteners; a pair of sweeping wing vents made from cast, polished stainless steel that duplicate Bentley’s “Flying B” emblem, which emphasize the effect of speed and movement on this physically dynamic car; intricate Diamond Quilted leather on the front and rear seats and door casings; and the Drive Dynamics Control system that offers the “Sport” setting providing improved steering accuracy, grip on the road and body control. Both versions share the same engine, which propels them from 0-60 in just 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 184 mph. Bentley also announced that all Mulsanne models offer the option of “an exquisitely detailed, Bentley designed, luxury bottle cooler and rear cabin storage area with space for two full-size Champagne bottles in a canted position.” Included with this bottle cooler are three hand-blown and hand-cut lead crystal champagne flutes, created by British designer, David Redman of London. And now this singular, grand touring Mulsanne lineup will be available to residents of South Florida. Sales Manager (Bentley/Rolls Royce Motor Cars/Aston Martin Fort Lauderdale) Howard Schwartz, remarked, “The new 2013 standard sunroof Mulsanne model will be available in November for show and test drive.” Asked if the Mulsanne had any competitors in the car market Mr. Schwartz replied: “The Mulsanne is at the top of the Bentley lineup. The only real competitor to the Mulsanne would be the Rolls Royce Phantom – the Mulsanne is Bentley’s answer to the Phantom.” For more information regarding the Mulsanne and the Mulsanne Mulliner edition contact Howard Schwartz at 954-779-2009 or email at hschwartz@holmanauto.com LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | NOVEMBER 2012

WARHOL FANS, START YOUR ENGINES Experience the iconic works from America’s most prolific Pop artist, Nov 10 – Feb 10.

NOVEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM


CRAZY ABOUT CARS? SO WAS ANDY WARHOL. The Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale partnered with PNC Bank to present Warhol and Cars: American Icons, bringing more than 40 distinctive pieces of art to South Florida. This is the first exhibition to examine Warhol’s fascination with automotive vehicles as products of American consumer society, making it

a must-see for art and car fanatics alike. The Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey organized the exhibition, which traces the development of Warhol’s work with cars throughout his career. Warhol and Cars pieces date all the way back to 1946 and include early line drawings and 1950s commercial work, paintings, and works on paper from the 1960s through the 1980s that present his signature silkscreen process.

We are happy that this partnership allows us to share our collection with the cultural community of South Florida.” As one of the most iconic and influential artists of the 20th century, Andy Warhol helped define America. His signature images of such American products and celebrities as Campbell’s soup cans, Coca-Cola bottles, Marilyn Monroe, and Elizabeth Taylor have become instantly recognizable. “PNC believes in the power of culturally engaging programs to strengthen our communities,” said Craig Grant, regional president,

“The Andy Warhol Museum is delighted that, through the generosity of PNC, Warhol and Cars: American Icons will be seen at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale,” said Eric Shiner, director of The Andy Warhol Museum. “This show is indicative of Warhol’s larger

practice of examining popular American culture - and what could be more American than cars - through the lens of his art. Warhol and Cars contains some of Warhol’s most accessible and beautiful images including representations of Cadillacs, Buicks, and even the VW Beetle.

An exhibition catalogue published by the Montclair Art Museum, Warhol and Cars: American Icons, written by Gail Stavitsky, MAM chief curator, is the first to focus on Warhol’s Cadillac paintings and other car-themed works within the context of his career. The catalog is available at Books & Books at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale. “Andy Warhol defied the styles of traditional art through his unique focus on American culture and advertising, which later credited him as a pioneer of the Pop art genre,” said William Stanton, Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale’s interim executive director. “It’s important that our repertoire of exhibitions span a variety of genres that appeal to art enthusiasts of all tastes.” Following a successful run at the Birmingham Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale will be the last stop on the Warhol and Cars: American Icons exhibition tour.

PNC Bank, Florida East. “We are excited that our relationship with the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh helped to bring this unique exhibition to Ft. Lauderdale. This not only compliments the Museum’s permanent collection of contemporary art, but supports the cultural vitality of this region.”

Big Boats In Broward BY JOANNA MAZEWSKI

If you are familiar with Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Audi, then we’ve got a new luxury dialect for you to learn: Ferretti, Azimut, Lurssen, and more. But these are the type of toys you play with in the water. And we’re not talking bath toys, either. or years Fort Lauderdale has been called “The Venice of America,” while Broward County has been known as the largest and most talked about yachting hub on the East Coast, and maybe the entire country. Every year during the fall, the world’s biggest and most well-known builders, designers, sellers, buyers, and megayacht enthusiasts, achievers and aspirers gather for the biggest yacht show in the United States: the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show – better known as FLIBS. Some of the most extravagant, uber luxurious $20 million yachts are on display here, which would give the Victoria’s Secret models a good run for their money. Yep, they’re just that sexy. Award-winning yachting aficionado Rebecca Taranto, who served as the Editor-in-Chief of ShowBoats International Magazine for eight years and is an avid contributor for yachting publications as well as part of the

F 28

NOVEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

design team at Taranto Creative, Inc., agrees. And not only is the boating show a big deal for the yachting industry, but for Broward County’s economy as well. When asked to describe Broward County’s yachting scene in three words, she says: “Vibrant. Responsive. Young.” And that type of vibrant youth is what might work to our advantage. While well-known German builders are known for their durability, Dutch for their assurance, and Italian for their oozing sex appeal, it’s perhaps our young age that makes us more willing to learn, explore, and innovate. And it all happens here, right in our very own backyard. Rebecca says: “The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, now in its 53rd year, has a lot to do with the yachting draw to Fort Lauderdale. While the Intercoastal Waterway makes Fort Lauderdale a great destination for boaters and cruisers, it was the boat show, conceived in 1959 by a group of brokers looking to offload some excess inventory during

the slow season, that spurred the city to be the yachting mecca it is today.” “While the overall size of yachts built and used in the United States are much smaller than those in the Mediterranean, the volume of yachts is comparable. Fort Lauderdale has long been known as the ‘Yachting Capital of the World’ and, despite ebbs and flows in the economy, continues to claim that moniker,” Rebecca adds. And while the names Christensen, Heesen, Fincantieri, and Moonen really do sound like leggy European supermodels, there are a few homegrown beauties that are born and bred in South Florida as well, but without the the diva, Blackberrythrowing attitude. Rebecca explains: “Broward Marine and Denison Marine, who, from 1948, built hundreds of private yachts and commercial vessels, many of which are still cruising the Intercoastal Waterway today. Many successful refit and repair facilities are based here, including Bradford Marine, Derecktor and Rolly

Marine, and many yacht builders from around the U.S. and the world have offices or representation here.” So what about the future of yachting in Fort Lauderdale? While there have been sizeable hiccups that have affected the industry due to the downturn of the economy, is yachting destined to get bigger, better, and faster here in Broward County? While yachties are well aware that the Monaco Boat Show, held every September in Monte Carlo, is the leading superyacht-focused boat show, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat show is by far the world's largest onwater show. This show alone generates about $650 million in revenue for the county each year. But this revenue doesn’t come without its setbacks or obstacles. “A debate has raged on for several years over whether to dredge the waters around the entrance to Port Everglades to allow for super freighters. This would also increase the draft at the Hyatt Pier 66 and

surrounding marinas and encourage larger yachts to visit and stay in Fort Lauderdale,” Rebecca explains. She adds: “Doing so would, however, displace sea grass, which is home to many South Florida marine species. Thus, for now, Fort Lauderdale is less of a cruising destination and more of an interim stopover location for yachts en route to the popular New England cruising grounds in the summer, the Mediterranean, or the Caribbean in the winter. Fort Lauderdale will continue to see owners, crew and yachting enthusiasts coming here to buy and sell their yachts and have them serviced or prepared for charter.” So with our future challenges and possible growing pains, there is still no doubt that the yachting industry will continue to grow and become an economic powerhouse for the county. Not only will the yachts be getting sexier and more luxurious, but the shows will be getting more modern as well. Move over super models.

Farm toTable BY JULIE KAY

IT’S BEEN SAID THAT FLORIDA, WITH ITS SCORCHING SUMMERS, IS AMONG THE HARDEST STATES FOR FARMING, PARTICULARLY GROWING PRODUCE. But that hasn’t stopped the Farm-to-Table movement from taking root in South Florida, where residents are in the market for healthful organic food that is gentle on the environment. The Farm-to-Table movement is still in its infancy, having only gained attention (and a moniker) within the last decade. The idea behind it is that food, particularly produce, not only tastes better and is more nutritious when purchased locally but is also more environmentally friendly because it doesn’t have to be flown, trucked or shipped from other areas or even countries. According to the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, in a study of 16 common fruits and vegetables, the average one travelled just under 1,500 miles before it was sold to a consumer. Additionally, 39 percent of fruits and 12 percent of vegetables were imported from other countries. To keep food from spoiling during its long travels, some produce is picked before it’s ripe, which means it has not fully absorbed necessary nutrients from its soil environment. On the environmental front, moving produce 1,500 miles burns around 500 gallons of diesel fuel. Additionally, on a financial basis, local farmers and economies are continually losing money to upstate New York, California, Chilean and other out-of-town farmers. Not only are local farmer’s markets sprouting up where people can buy locally grown produce, but restaurants that buy and serve local products – called Farm-to-Table restaurants – are also gaining popularity, albeit slowly. While Miami-Dade boasts a handful or more of such restaurants, Broward County only has a couple exclusively Farm-to-Table restaurant, Market 17 in Fort Lauderdale and the Nuage Café in Parkland. However, a growing number of other restaurants throughout the county are striving to become Farm-toTable and are at the minimum, organic, vegan and raw.

SUBLIME

Market 17 at 1850 SE 17th St. was started by brother and sister Kirsta and Aaron Grauberger two years ago. The siblings, who were raised in Colorado by a father who grew his own vegetables in a greenhouse, wanted to open a restaurant that emulated their own lifestyle, and were particularly inspired by the restaurants of Napa Valley in California. They knew it wouldn’t be easy to run a Farm-to-Table restaurant in Florida but were resolved to open Broward’s first such eatery. “We’re a great agricultural state but we definitely suffer in the summer, compared to a place like California that grow year-round,” said Kirsta. “This was a market that was not being served. And the demographics were right.” The upscale eatery has been well received by patrons, some of whom come from West Palm Beach or Miami and don’t mind that the meals cost from 15 to 20 percent more than at other restaurants. Menus at Market 17 are changed on a daily basis and vegans and vegetarians have choices galore. The most popular dishes are the Florida snapper and game meat such as buffalo. To find food free from pesticides, chemicals or hormones and animals raised in a humane environment, Market 17 buys from 50 different farmers, ranches and fishermen, including Swank Farms in Loxahatchee, Aaldmon Farms in Lake Worth, The Urban Farmer in Pompano Beach, Winter Park Dairy in Winter Park, Gary’s Seafood in Orlando and Palmetto Creek Farm in Avon Park. In select cases, the restaurant will buy from out of state vendors, however nothing is ever bought outside the United States.

KIRSTA AND AARON GRAUBERG

Another Fort Lauderdale restaurant, Sublime, grows many of its own herbs and vegetables on the roof of the restaurant at 1431 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, FL and at an off-site garden. The restaurant which counts celebrities like Paul McCartney, Bob Barker and Alec Baldwin as regulars opened in 2003 and closed briefly after Hurricane Wilma. A gourmet vegan restaurant, Sublime was started by Nanci Alexander, founder of the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida in order to show that vegan food could be just as, well, sublime as non plant-based food. One hundred percent of the restaurant’s profits support animal welfare efforts. If you go to the roof of the restaurant, you’ll see eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, basil, arugula and other vegetables and herbs growing wild. A full-time caretaker is in charge of tending to the garden.

“When you buy produce in stores, it’s lacking nutrients,” Brouwers said. “I try to go for the best nutrients possible.”

NUAGE CAFÉ

In Parkland, Nuage Café at 5903 W. Hillsboro Blvd. offers what is likely the only raw vegan and Farm-to-Table buffet, open for lunch and dinner. Owner Thierry Brouwers opened the café in December 2011, naming it after the French word for cloud because he considers water the most important element on earth. A self-taught raw food chef, Hippocrates Health Institute practitioner and scientist who studied cooking in France, Brouwers, whose alias is “Superlight,” Brouwers grows his own wheatgrass, sprouts, lentils and other vegetables and herbs hydroponically and also on trays in his home kitchen. He also buys from local farms. Brouwers is so serious about serving organic food high in nutrients he uses a device called a refractometer to test the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables before buying them, placing the hand-held device deep into the soil for a reading. “When you buy produce in stores, it’s lacking nutrients,” Brouwers said. “I try to go for the best nutrients possible.” Devotees travel from as far away as Jupiter and Tampa to sample the eatery’s lunch and dinner buffets or the veggie pattie, pineapple-mushroom-sun-dried tomato pizza, lucid dream tea, banana ice cream and the famed Magic water. Some also take part in the drumming circles, yoga, holistic medicine lectures and speed dating, making the Nuage Café a one-stop shop for health, fitness and love.

MY ORGANIC CORNER Open for just six months, My Organic Corner at 127 Weston Rd. in Weston serves fully organic food made to order and served in biodegradable serving ware. The eatery buys its products from such companies as Fair Trade Organic Coffee, Organic Loose Leaf Teas, Grounds for Change, Applegate, Simply Organic, Global Organic (produce) and Ezekial 4:9 bread. In addition to organic salads, wraps, their popular vegan cheeseburger, smoothies, soups and juices, the restaurant offers a daily “facebook” special of the day, such as Moroccan tofu with chickpeas, squash, zucchini and onions, served with jasmine rice, for $8.99.

No place exemplifies farm to table more than Batten Farms in Davie, newly reopened under the auspices of the North South Institute and the Davie Agri-Tourism Center. There, you can have lunch at the Market Kountry Kitchen and then buy your own fruit and vegetables grown in a special soil bag out back. The restaurant serves up decidedly nonorganic food like country barbecue and jerk kitchen along with fresh vegetable soup made with broccoli, pumpkin and herbs grown out back. Fans come from throughout the tri-county area for the fresh smoothies and juices.

JASF SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENTS Junior Achievement of South Florida has been recognized by JA Worldwide with the Summit Award for Financial Solvency, Program Impact, Program Quality, and Overall Management Effectiveness. Junior Achievement of South Florida just completed (June 30, 2012) the third operating year of the largest outreach for Capstone programs in the world. Since opening in the fall of 2009, over 112,000 students have studied and visited JA BizTown and JA Finance Park at JA World Huizenga Center. JA was accepted and fully participated in the Community Foundation of Broward’s “Boards in Action” leadership training. This enabled JA to create a high level, effective and engaged Board of Directors to further lead in advancing the mission of JA. The provision of JA Summer Camp in June and July of each summer is an augmented and extended version of JA BizTown. Over 200 disadvantaged students are served each year. Junior Achievement World has become a unique learning resource for a wide range of children with disabilities. The third USA placement of exact bronze replicas of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights were gifted to JASF and are now housed in a new gallery within JA World Huizenga Center. Sponsorship provided also allowed JA to secure a copy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for every 8th grader in Broward County. These 8th graders now see and experience these historic and world changing documents. These are examples of excellence in our field because we have been able to serve thousands of students, increase impact, remain solvent, and inspire a community via a 5 star, educational facility that brings joy back to the education arena for local children!

Alberto Alvarez Receives Broward Education Foundation Scholarship In Memory of Fallen Fire Fighter Bill Elliott BY KEVIN LANE

“The minute I stepped onto the bay of Davie Fire station 38, I knew for sure that I wanted to be a Firefighter for the rest of my life,” Alberto Alvarez recalled. It was a life-changing decision in several ways, not the least of which is the fact that up until the day he ‘shadowed’ the firefighters, he planned to be a doctor. ”I had studied and prepared to be a doctor, taking Health Science, Anatomy and psychology classes at Western High in Davie,” Alberto said. During 11th grade he applied to Florida Gulf Coast University for their Pre-med program, in part because of the small class sizes and beautiful campus. Although he and his family were overjoyed that he was accepted, they are equally happy that he will pursue a career as an Emergency Medical Technician and Fire Fighter. Alberto recently got a ‘helping hand’ in paying for his education. He was the first recipient of a scholarship from a fund set up at the Broward Education Foundation by Mary Beth Williams in memory of her brother, Bill Elliott, a beloved Pompano Beach fire fighter who was tragically killed in a training exercise. “We want Bill’s legacy of always helping others to become a way students can realize their dreams of college,” she said.” Both of her brothers chose firefighting as a career. The scholarship will help Alberto complete his training at McFatter Technical Center in Davie. A remarkable facet of Alberto’s life-story is that he arrived in South Florida 10 years ago, when he was 7, along with his older brother Danny and his parents, Alberto Senior and Letty Alvarez who fled Cuba. “My

Donor Community Helps Local Non-Profits Raise Funds and Engage Their Communities The past five years have been difficult for the nation’s nearly 300,000 mid-sized non-profits. Many businesses have cut back on their event sponsorships and personal giving through traditional sources has declined. In response, many non-profit organizations have been forced to cut staff and scale back programs relied upon by some of the most vulnerable members of our community. As a result, non-profits are now taking a hard look at their traditional fundraising strategies and actively seeking new revenue sources. Most have correctly concluded that online fundraising offers the best opportunity to build a stable, long-term revenue stream. Yet, until recently, they have lacked the tools and technologies needed to pursue online fundraising in an efficient and ongoing way. Now, thanks to South Florida based software firm, DonorCommunity, all of that has changed. DonorCommunity’s cloud computing “Software as a Service” platform enables non-profits to cultivate donors, increase their fundraising efficiency and broaden awareness of their mission and goals online with unprecedented ease and efficiency. By expanding their reach and reducing their costs, DonorCommunity enables non-profits to devote more of their resources to delivering essential programs and services to their communities. “DonorCommunity is dedicated to serving the tens of thousands of small to mid-sized U.S. non-profits that play such a critical role in community life,” said David Blyer, DonorCommunity Founder and CEO. “Cloud computing makes it possible for us to provide these organizations with a software solution that is very affordable and perfectly attuned to their needs. We’re unique in the marketplace.” Among its South Florida clientele, DonorCommunity counts The Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward, Dan Marino Foundation, Can’t Stomach Cancer Foundation (Debbie’s Dream), ChildNet, The Children’s Fund for Glycogen Storage Disease Research, 2-1-1 Broward, Davie Police Athletic League (PAL), St. Vincent de Paul Seminary, Laurens Kids, The Haven and many others. Since implementing the DonorCommunity platform this past summer, The Children’s Fund for GSD Research has already realized significant benefits. According to Vice President & Fundraising Chair Lisa Hodes, “We are a very small foundation with a narrow audience, making it difficult to generate funds. Donor Community has streamlined our fundraising process and broadened our reach, enabling us to increase both our constituent base and revenue. DonorCommunity’s online marketing capabilities have also enabled us to become more efficient in tracking donations, thanking donors, and sharing our mission with our stakeholder community.”

DAVID BLYER, FOUNDER AND CEO OF DONOR COMMUNITY

“We recovered our entire DonorCommunity investment within a couple of weeks,” added Timothy Albury, Director of Davie PAL. “Since then, the upside has been incredible. We’re raising more funds now than ever before. DonorCommunity also provided us with a great new website and comprehensive capabilities for keeping kids and parents informed about our programs and services. DonorCommunity has moved us forward in a major way.” According to Shelia J. Smith, President & CEO of 2-1-1 Broward, “We rely on community support to produce a significant percentage of our annual operating funds, so it’s essential for us to maintain an ongoing dialogue with event attendees and supporters so that they remain actively engaged with our organization. DonorCommunity’s software platform has helped us better manage our fundraising capabilities and relationships with our supporters.” DonorCommunity also offers a Software Donation Program that provides businesses with a costeffective and tax-deductible program for pursuing their corporate philanthropy, community relations and marketing objectives by purchasing and then donating DonorCommunity licenses to their favorite non-profits.

READING FOR SUCCESS REBECCA SACHS, PH.D. Licensed Psychologist Ph.D. in Clinical & School Psychology Director of Psychoeducational Services ZZZDFDGHPLFRSWLRQVFRP www.nbiweston.com 3KRQH Determining a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true reading abilities is complicated. A child that reads at an early age, very rapidly, or even appears to like reading may still not know how to read for success. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because reading for success means far more than being able to decode words or â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ nish books.â&#x20AC;? It means being able to comprehend deeper meanings, understand the purpose of the material, and being able to generalize reading skills to essays, tests, and other educational and real life activities. Beyond school, well-developed reading skills are related to career advancement and positive self-image- yes, even in high-tech ďŹ elds. In early grades, developing good reading mechanics is the priority. Later on, reading for success naturally becomes more of a complex, multidimensional process. In the course of their educational career, a child that is behind in foundational reading skills will be at increased risk for declining academic performance. Unfortunately, this problem can remain undiscovered for many

52

years, even until well into high school or college. Therefore, the importance of early detection and remediation cannot be overemphasized. Here are important questions for parents to ask to determine whether their child is merely reading versus truly reading for success: UĂ&#x160; Is my child able to describe their thoughts about the process of reading that goes beyond just superficially stating â&#x20AC;&#x153;the factsâ&#x20AC;? in the material? UĂ&#x160; Is my child able to identify how the answer choices on tests differ, and why one of them is more likely to be correct? UĂ&#x160; Can my child read instructions for homework or projects and innately understand how to create a plan and follow through without being â&#x20AC;&#x153;spoon fed?â&#x20AC;? UĂ&#x160; Is my child just as skilled at understanding nonďŹ ction as she is at ďŹ ction, or does she struggle reading her history textbook while breezing through the latest novel? UĂ&#x160; Can my child integrate infor mation from texts with his own original ideas to formulate a coherent argument (without relying on Spark Notes, of course)? UĂ&#x160; Does my child really know how to analyze ACT/SAT questions or are they over-reliant on rote use of test prep tricks?

NOVEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

Reading for success is fostered by parents who impart that reading is meaningful, provide a variety of reading experiences, and are often observed enjoying books. Parents can also seize non-reading opportunities to help their child develop greater capacity for abstract and analytic thinking. For example, while watching television, parents can ask their child to paraphrase the scene and predict what they think will happen next, and why. They can also discuss the feelings and motivations of the characters. Then they can show their child how the same approach applies to reading. Yet, sometimes even a parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best efforts may not be enough. In these cases, seeking professional assessment and intervention is often necessary. Targeted instruction in multidimensional reading skills, study strategies, and test preparation can make all the difference for many children. However, before starting any specialized program itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a good idea to make certain that the instructors are well versed in both understanding and teaching the intricacies of reading for success.

MAKING SOCIAL MEDIA PART OF YOUR MARKETING PLAN CAREN BERG Senior Vice President, Boardroom Communications 13LQH,VODQG5RDG 6XLWH 3ODQWDWLRQ)/  www.BoardroomPR.com When Apple announced the iPhone 5, the news truly spread like wildďŹ re. While traditional media such as CNN and the local television stations ran stories frequently, it was the social media that made the announcement nearly monumental. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s businessmen donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to launch the latest version of the i-Phone, however, to make news and generate reactions. How? Most marketing plans traditionally include public relations, advertising and networking. But if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not using social media, you are leaving out a critical element of 21 Century marketing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and you may be barely visible in the online universe. That is not a good scenario. Successfully integrating social media into your marketing is not simply important; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite simply essential. The Fortune 500 companies recognize the power of social media -- but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only at the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Clearly, more and more companies have â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and will continue to â&#x20AC;&#x201C; migrate to sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. And todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savvy social media marketer knows there are many new and powerful

54

vehicles that must be embraced, Instagram and Pinterest are just two of the fast rising social media sites that have developed huge follows, and proven to be excellent communicators. In aggregate, marketers understand that these social media tools keep their business top of mind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and highly searchable. If your business doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already participate in several social media programs as an integral part of its marketing, the time to start is now. Explore the sites â&#x20AC;&#x201C; see how others use them, and consider the best ones as models. Post news and photos of a recent event. Spread the word about a new hire. LinkIn with your clients and your vendors. Get visible. Social media is the 21st Century radar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when someone says you need to stay on his or her radar, social media can do it. Non-profits have led the charge in embracing the beneďŹ ts of social media. Charities use Facebook fan pages and Twitter feeds to drive trafďŹ c back to their Website, where a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donate Nowâ&#x20AC;? or a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Register for this Eventâ&#x20AC;? link can move visitors to immediate action. Fundraising efforts use every media tool, from traditional PR and marketing, to blogging, texting and social media. In the 1980s, Trivial Pursuit rewrote marketing strategies

NOVEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

by using new techniques that drove sales due to remarkable word of mouth. The company put the game in the hands of celebrities and inďŹ&#x201A;uencers and sales of the game took off without advertising. Today, word of mouth is typed on laptops, cell phones, iPads and desk tops â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and driven by social media sites. Yes, social media requires attention, but anything worth doing is worth doing well and businesses that devote time reap the beneďŹ ts. If you or your marketing director is too busy to post content, bring in a social media expert or communications ďŹ rm to handle this process. Unless you have the next iPhone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and even if you do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a difference when you give social media the opportunity to work for you.

AND

another thing... DOES PRETTY MATTER? BY BRUCE TURKEL

In his best seller Blink, Malcolm Gladwell writes about the decisions we make quickly Gladwell argues that millions of years of evolution have given us the skills we need to make instant choices, often without all the facts. One of his examples is a story about a museum that spent an enormous amount of money on a well-tested and professionally authenticated ancient statue only to have an expert question the providence of the piece after one quick glance. Being a designer, I found that discussion extremely interesting because I often wonder the same thing. Is surface design — and the decisions made because of it — a shallow criteria or is it a true harbinger of much deeper meaning? Nature seems to side with the second argument. The black/red/yellow pattern of a coral snake, for example, broadcasts the viper’s poisonous abilities, hence the nursery rhyme, “red on yellow, kill a fellow, red on black, friend of Jack.” Thorns, fangs, and claws all look dangerous and remind us to stay away. And evolution has graced some less dangerous creatures, such as the small emperor moth, with features designed to make them look much more formidable than they actually are — in the moth’s case, spots across delicate wings that resemble the eyes of the fiercest owl. Politics, too, thrives on decisions made based on surface image. The 1960 presidential debate between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy is an oft-quoted example. While most analysts say that radio listeners thought Nixon won the debate, Kennedy was declared the winner based on TV viewers. JFK’s youthful, vigorous, and handsome visage trumped the old school Nixon who was described as tired, puffy, and unshaven. Regardless of their political affiliation, every president since Reagan has been tall and good-looking, including the two candidates for the current presidential race. And almost a century ago, the man widely declared to be one of the worst presidents in history, Warren Harding, was said to have won the race because he “looked presidential.” Packaging has always been one of the key assets of marketing too, and until recently the belief was that 80% of purchase decisions were made in-store when the consumer actually saw the product. Today, when more and more purchase decisions are made online, sites that are visually oriented and aesthetically pleasing outscore and outsell sites that are not. Computerization has also made surface appeal more important. Because of modern design and manufacturing

66

techniques, virtually all products function the way they should. Remember the days when TVs used to break? Picture tubes would blow, the gears inside dials (remember dials?) would strip, remote controls would fail. But thanks to computer design and digital signals, today’s TVs work like they’re supposed to and consumers don’t feel the need to replace them very often. To stimulate sales, manufacturers have to create new features - flat screens and 3D TV - just to get their customers back into the stores. Cars from Korea’s Kia used to be considered cheap and tinny transportation. But just as with televisions, computer-aided design and manufacturing changed the abilities and durability of the cars, bringing them into line with other, much more expensive automobiles. Kia telegraphed these changes with cutting-edge design and today their beautiful cars are rocketing up the sales charts. But the question remains, are visuals reliable indicators of quality or just shallow eyewash? Would Ron Paul have been a more successful candidate if he looked more like Mitt Romney than a ventriloquist’s dummy? Would Romney and Barack Obama have been as successful as they’ve been without their movie star looks? Would Apple have become the most valuable technology company on the planet without its steadfast commitment to design? Miami, Milan, and Madrid have all built their businesses based on aesthetics. Audi, Kia, and Infiniti, too. So have Apple, Bose, and Bang & Olufsen. But does that mean their product offerings are better than the rest? That’s a question deserving of a formidable debate. What I know is that besides being an enjoyable end in and of itself, good design is a valuable business asset. Companies that invest in aesthetics see the difference on their balance sheets. And time-starved consumers make purchase choices based on the snap decisions that have been honed by millions of years of evolutionary development.
