Get the lift you've been looking for with Restylane-L™ Injectable Gel and Perlane-L™ Injectable Gel The Restylane® Injectable Gel and Perlane® Injectable Gel you know and trust are combined with a local anesthetic (lidocaine) to help reduce discomfort.a

Nasolabial folds before. a

After 2 mL of Perlane-L Individual results may vary.

In clinical studies evaluating the Restylane family of products, Restylane-L® and Perlane-L® demonstrated less discomfort at injection and up to one hour later compared to Restylane and Perlane, respectively.

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Perlane®, and Perlane-L®. These products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years. Ask your doctor which is right for you. Important Safety Considerations for the Restylane family of products Products in the Restylane family should not be used by people with previous bad allergies, particularly to microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria, or by people with serious allergies to drugs that have previously required in-hospital treatment. These products should not be used by people with bleeding disorders. Products should not be injected anywhere except the skin, just under the skin (Perlane and Perlane-L only), or in the lips (Restylane only). Restylane-L and Perlane-L should not be used by anyone with a known allergy to lidocaine. Use at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. In these instances, product use could delay healing or make your skin problems worse. After treatment, you might

have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years. Rarely, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin. Although rare, red or swollen small bumps may occur. If you have had facial cold sores before, an injection can cause an outbreak. To avoid bruising and bleeding, you should not use the products if you have recently used drugs that thin your blood or prevent clotting. Products should not be used during pregnancy, when breastfeeding, or in patients under 18 years for nasolabial folds. Treatment volume should be limited to 6.0 mL in wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, and limited to 1.5 mL per lip (Restylane only), as greater amounts significantly increase moderate and severe injection site reactions. The safety or effectiveness of treatment in areas other than nasolabial folds and lips (Restylane only) has not been established in controlled clinical studies. The Restylane family of products is available only through a licensed practitioner. Complete product and safety information is available at www.RestylaneUSA.com.

POLITICS – NEW EDITOR – HOLIDAYS Four more years for President Barack Obama! Out of one of the costliest and possibly the nastiest political seasons comes more of the same. We have a President without complete Congressional support. The US House has the same Republican majority while the Democrats control the US Senate. Just in time for the media frenzied “Fiscal Cliff”. What this means for many is more uncertainty about economic growth or the creation of jobs. The looming crisis reminds me of a quote I learned in college, “together we can accomplish anything; divided we are only as strong as our weakest link!” Now, the question is who is going to be the weak link or will outdated agendas be put aside for the greater good? Will our elected leaders come together and collaborate to develop an economic policy to move our country forward and lead the world to prosperity once more? One thing is certain, we must come together and work together “in order to form a more perfect union.” For if we fail the cost to generations to come may be insurmountable. To all those elected officials, I hope, as you take your oath of office, you commit to serving with integrity and with the best interests of your constituency in the forefront of your mind. More than ever, divine intervention may be the key to success. I am pleased to introduce our new Editor, Michael Koretzky. Michael brings with him years of journalist experience as well as entrepreneurial acumen. He started two publications which he sold to other media companies. He was a university educator with numerous accolades from his former students. Those he mentored describe him as being “a mix between Walter Cronkite

and Don King– trustworthy, with an intoxicating side of flash.” A selfdescribed “journoterrorist,” you will find his style pushes the envelope as well as being inviting. He is open to ideas and welcomes your input for future articles. We trust Michael will elevate our sophisticated editorial to become relevant and interesting while enhancing our local approach. Speaking of interesting, one of our feature stories this month is on some adventurous gift ideas. Our editorial team scanned the tri-county area to give you some notions other than the beloved tie or a bottle of perfume. These Christmas stocking stuffer selections are surely not for the faint of heart. And, since there are eight, you can give one each day of Chanukah. The recipient will definitely remember you and the gift. As we enter the holiday season, I want to wish you and your family a Happy Chanukah, a Merry Christmas, a Happy Kwanza and Happy Holidays. I hope your year was filled with success and good

memories. For those who are facing adversity, I wish you courage and the strength to persevere, overcome and become stronger in the New Year. I hope you made a difference this year or maybe paid it forward in gratitude for your good fortune. When you are celebrating with family, I urge you to remember, in any way you are able, those less fortunate and those protecting us here and abroad. I leave you with the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin, “Be always at battle with your vices, at peace with your neighbors and let each New Year find you a better person.” As Always, Enjoy the Lifestyle™

CAVIAR MANICURE KIT

Sexy, cool and extravagant – that’s how some describe Ciaté’s new concept, threedimensional nails created by Ciaté’s Caviar Manicure Kit. And it’s easy to apply: Prep the nail by swiping on a coat from their Paint Pot product. Let it turn slightly sticky and then … Sprinkle with the color pearls that you have chosen (rainbow, black pearls, mother of pearls). Place your finger, one at a time, over the tray and sprinkle the caviar pearls onto your nail, gently tap down to make them adhere … After approximately 20 minutes seal the edges with the clear top coat to strengthen the bond, and reapply top coat daily. Your new look may last up to three to five days. Check it out at http://www.ciate.co.uk/ caviar-manicure.html/

All Mixed Up Champion Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Student Cameron Bevan Wins Title

C

By Kevin Lane

ameron Bevan cooked up some amazing desserts like rice pudding beignets with cabernet coulis and chocolate cream, light and dark chocolate-covered bacon with rice pudding sauce – Wait, chocolate-covered bacon? “Just about everyone loves sweet and salty together. And bacon has such a rich smoky taste. We’re seeing in so many desserts now – bacon ice cream, bacon crumbled on cake, you name it. It’s a hot new trend, so I figured it would be a hit,” he smiled. And it was! The 28-year-old student from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale recently won the title of “All Mixed Up Champion” on the third and final episode of “All Mixed Up” on Lifetime TV, hosted by celebrity chef and TV personality Ralph Celebrity chef Ralph Pagano Pagano. The student chefs had to complete with an appetizer, entrée and a dessert in 30 minutes. Reflecting on the contest, Cameron said he created some recipe ideas a few days before the shoot, but that everyone had to think on their feet once they knew the exact ingredients they would be provided. And Chef Pagano threw in some extra curves, like cutting down their time or taking away some of their tools. Cameron moved to Fort Lauderdale from Las Vegas in 2011. “It was frightening as I came with just enough money to live on for two weeks, so I had to make something happen fast,” he said. He’s worked part time at several area restaurants to make ends meet, but currently is just focused on his culinary courses.

Chef Jack Kane with “All Mixed Up” champion Cameron Bevan in front of the Chef’s Palette Café & Grill And he has high praise for his instructors. “The chefs here are really good – I’ve learned a lot of cooking techniques and kitchen management,” he said. He added that Chef Marcela Guzman encouraged him to try out for “All Mixed Up.” “Hosting ‘All Mixed Up’ on our campus and having our students compete was one of the most exciting events I’ve seen here,” said Claude Toland, president of The Art Institute. “Cameron Bevan came from behind to win the dessert round and the overall competition, impressing the judges with his creativity by using all three secret ingredients in all three of his desserts.” Chef Jack Kane, academic director of culinary arts, echoed President Toland’s sentiments, saying that the contest “offered our culinary students a wonderful opportunity to show the quality of their culinary education to television audiences across the country. In the end, Cameron won because he was willing to take a creative risk with his desserts – and made it work for the judges.” Like a lot of chefs and chefs-in-themaking, Cameron would like to open his own restaurant some day.

The Voice of Broward 17-year-old Joselyn Rivera sings on network TV By Jamie Steinberg

J

oselyn Rivera says she was quiet as a child, but something changed when she learned how to sing. In recent years, the budding pop vocalist has performed for crowds at Miami Heat and Dolphins games. And now she’s competing on The Voice, NBC’s answer to American Idol. One of her coaches on the show has been Christine Aguilera, who declared Rivera has a “crazy great range!” Another coach, CeeLo Green, referred to Rivera as “this little thing with a big voice.” But the real secret to her success though might be something another coach, Blake Shelton, noticed: “Joselyn sings with her smile.” Rivera sat down with Lifestyle Publications for this interview... WHO WERE SOME OF THE ARTISTS THAT REALLY INFLUENCED YOU AND GOT YOU TALKING? Well, my mom really introduced me to a lot of music since I was young. I actually fell in love with [the movie] Selena, where Jennifer Lopez plays Selena, the Mexican singer. I really, really fell in love with her songs. And to be specific, one of them was “Como La Flor” in Spanish and the other one was “Biddy Biddy Bom Bom.” Those two songs really got me started in music, and really I took off after that. And then next, of course, is Christina Aguilera. I really, really became obsessed with her first album, especially the songs “I Turn to You” and “Come on Over.” I learned those at the age of 5, and I began singing them over and over again. Christina really inspired me at a young age. And it’s just so surreal to just have her as a coach now! It hasn’t really hit me yet. So I really have to give a lot of credit to Christina and Selena. WHAT WAS IT LIKE HAVING CHRISTINA AGUILERA AS A COACH? I could tell you what I felt when I hugged her after my blind audition. She really looked me in the eyes and she said, “We got this! We’re going to go far! We have so much in common. We’re really going to get this town.” When she told me that, I was in another world. I was on another planet. At that point, I could tell

she was really, really warm person. She’s very loving and she cares about her contestants. ARE YOU HAPPY THAT YOU GOT THE CHANCE TO WORK WITH CHRISTINA BEFORE SHE LEFT THE SHOW? AND HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR EXPERIENCES WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT IF YOU WERE BEING MENTORED BY SHAKIRA OR USHER? It’s been just such a privilege to work with Christina, and I heard the news about Usher and Shakira coming in next season. I’ve always dreamed of being on her team and never would have thought I would end up in her team or even end up on the show in that case. But she’s definitely an inspiration to me. It’s definitely a dream come true, and I’m definitely honored to work with her. I really don’t know what it would be like to work with Shakira and Usher, since I’ve never really worked with them before. But I’m sure I’d look up to them too as well. They’re great artists. IS IT TRUE YOU STARTED OFF SINGING TO A KARAOKE MACHINE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD? HOW DID YOU GO FROM KARAOKE TO PERFORMING LIVE AND GOING TO THE VOICE? Yeah, basically, I started off with Barbie karaoke. And after that, around the age of 10, I started performing. I became a local performer around my district and other districts as well. And I began performing at corner streets. My mom opened up a company called Artistic Explosion, which is still around. And I was very much a part of it. And we would perform at Disneyworld. That’s how I really, really had such a strong passion for performing. The stage is my home. So I signed with Emilio Estefan, Gloria Estefan’s husband, to Full Moon. Basically, they started off putting me in little performances like Miami Heat, performing the national anthem and at the Dolphins versus the Jets. I was actually the first performer to perform at the opening of the new Marlins ballpark. So that’s basically been my journey. And that led up to me being on The Voice. And I’m just really, really excited. More at www.joselynrivera.com

The Voice: NBC’s Big Hit Since it premiered in April 2011, NBC’s The Voice has challenged Fox’s American Idol as the nation’s top TV talent show. While Idol still wins the ratings battle overall, the numbers are closer in the coveted 18-47 demographic – a difference of less than one percent. So what makes The Voice so special? The blind audition is a big part. Judges such as Christine Aguilera and Cee Lo Green hear but don’t see the contestants. And just like American Idol was based on a a British reality show called Pop Idol, The Voice was based on a similar show from across the pond – called The Voice of Ireland.

Rita & Rick Case Kick Off Bikes For Kids A Tradition That’s Gifted 100,000 Bikes

O

By Kevin Lane

ne of the fondest memories many people have of their childhood is when they got their first bicycle. Parents were often thrilled and terrified – thrilled to see the sheer joy in their children’s faces and their unbridled laughter as they find their balance and bearing, and terrified that they will fall. Of course, children fall, but they get right up and are back, mastering their new-found grown-up transportation. Thanks to Rita and Rick Case, more than 100,000 children’s holidays have been brightened by receiving a bicycle. The couple has been playing Santa Claus since 1982 by collecting bicycles at all of their Rick Case dealerships in South Florida, Cleveland and Atlanta, and donating them to kids. And the tradition continues. Once again, the “Rick Case Bikes for Kids” program kicks into high gear, with bikes being collected through December 20. Thanks to TV stations that provide free public service commercials, police departments who donate unclaimed bicycles, and all of the Rick Case associates who scour their neighborhood and call on friends to donate bikes that are in garages and basements. “Our community really comes together to make sure the children in the area can have the best holiday season possible,” Rick said. Locally, the bikes are distributed through area Boys & Girls Clubs as well as other charity organizations including Big Mama, the Prestige Club and area churches. The “Bikes for Kids” idea started in Ohio, when in addition to numerous automotive dealerships, Rick Case also had 14 family-oriented motorcycle dealerships, selling mopeds and bicycles. “I saw a lot of children come in, their eyes brightened when they saw the gleaming bicycles, but

Rita & Rick Case’s Commitment to Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward 44

Rick and I knew their families weren’t going to be able to afford such a gift. So, we decided to have a bike drive. It was hugely successful,” Rita recalled. The couple, who are among the most philanthropic people in the community, have been active supporters of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County since 1985 when they opened their Acura dealership. Honda had taken over the Jackie Gleason Golf Tournament and some of the Honda corporate people suggested that Rick and Rita get involved in the Boys & Girl’s Club and help them financially and as a volunteer. “We met David Hughes, the director at the time. He showed us the facilities, explained what they did and we decided that it was the perfect organization for us to support,” Rita said. There were three facilities and 1,000 youth… today there are 13 facilities and well over 12,000 youth. The couple have raised over $50 million during the past 25 years.

Just last month, Rita and Rick Case celebrated the 25th Anniversary of their hugely successful Yachting Rendezvous, which took place at The Atlantis in the Bahamas. Over the years, that event has raised more than $30 million dollars for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward. Rick Case wrote a book entitled, “Our Customers, Our Friends – What 50 Years in Business has Taught Rita & and Rick Case about Sales Success and Community Service.”

The Magic of Gardening Pine Crest students have green thumbs

“M

ighty oaks from little acorns grow,” is a phrase that could well have motivated the students at Pine Crest School to start a small garden. Of course, the meaning of the phrase is that mighty things come from small beginnings. Under the guidance of Lower School Introductory Science Teacher Mary Beth Graf, first-grade students decided to try their hand at gardening and have since not only discovered that they each have a “green thumb,” but have the joy of planting seeds and watching them grow. Their success has spurred them on to expand their thinking from a small garden to, one day, a bountiful harvest. Walking from Pine Crest’s parking garage to the classrooms and offices, visitors will see a patch of brilliant marigolds nestled in a Lower School alcove. However, upon closer examination, they will see that there is a carefully planted, budding garden with leafy herbs and vegetables inside the midst of those towering marigolds! “Surrounding the garden with the marigolds serves as a natural pesticide and hungry rabbit deterrent,” said Graf. As part of a unit on soil, Graf’s students donned lab coats and picked through samples of rich humus soil and sand with tweezers. They discussed the similarities and differences of each, then visited the nearby school garden to check up on the progress of the beginnings of several small crops – including kale, tomatoes, and a variety of different squashes.

48

DECEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

Graf said she hopes the crops will produce enough for students to sample a mini-smorgasbord of whole foods straight from the earth! “The science of agriculture is fascinating and often overlooked. Soil is an amazing natural resource and we really don’t think about what is in soil. It is not just about planting and watching things grow. There is a whole lot more involved,” Mary Beth added. “We have planted fruits, vegetables and herbs from seed. We have also added hydroponics towers.” During a spring harvest on the Boca Raton campus, the students in Miss Wanland’s PreKindergarten class had a tasty lesson in harvesting the potatoes. Chef Don Janezic of SAGE Dining Services magically transformed those potatoes into potato chips, which the students enjoyed at lunch time. ”The primary goal of the garden is to teach students the art and science, and the importance of responsibility and healthy eating,” said Pine Crest President Dr. Dana Markham. Gardening is a collaborative effort that comes with natural rewards. Pine Crest School was founded in 1934 by Dr. Mae McMillan, who was known for being progressive and adaptable. Pine Crest School has two campuses, one in Boca Raton and the main campus in Fort Lauderdale, with enrollment at more than 2,600 students. Visit www.pinecrest.edu.or call (954) 492-4103. LP

Saying “I Do” To a Smooth Divorce By Meaghan K. Marro

can run “theDivorces gamut from a

M

ost people who say “I do” usually do not anticipate their marriage ending in divorce. Unfortunately, most relationships have problems, and some ultimately break down and end in divorce. Even in divorce there is choice insomuch as the parties can decide what kind of divorce they want. Divorces can run the gamut from a lengthy divorce full of anger and animosity, to a relatively smooth straightforward divorce. Below are helpful tips for making the divorce process a little less difficult, and hopefully more like the latter. SPEAK WITH ONE ANOTHER. Many people are angry and/or sad when a relationship comes to an end, but it is important not to let your emotions control how you react throughout your divorce process. There is a good chance that you will have to continue to deal with your soon to be former spouse, especially if you have children together. Remember, it may be possible to maintain a friendship after the dust has settled. UNDERSTAND YOUR NEW FINANCIAL REALITY. After the divorce, you will need to be practical about your financial future and plan accordingly. The ability to live within your new means may require that you have to eliminate some of your wants. You may not be able to enjoy some of the luxuries that you enjoyed in the past on a single income. DON’T INVOLVE THE CHILDREN. Never involve your children in the divorce, and never speak negatively about

lengthy divorce full of anger and animosity, to a relatively smooth straightforward divorce.

the other parent to the children. Always remember that your child is 50% of you and 50% of you partner. If you put down your spouse you are ultimately putting down part of your child. Growing up is hard enough for children, and there is no need to add additional stress to their life. COMPROMISE. Be realistic and be prepared to compromise, if you are interested in an amicable smooth divorce. While you may want to take everything from your partner or eliminate their contact with your children, no Court will allow this to happen without compelling reasons. The more willing you are to compromise on some matters, the quicker you and your partner will be able to enter into a fair agreement and preserve your assets and sanity. LIVE FOR THE FUTURE AND NOT IN THE PAST. Divorces are usually a very difficult and emotional time for both parties. You will overcome this obstacle in your life just as you have conquered other life transitions. The sooner a conclusion is reached in a divorce proceeding, the sooner both of you are free to begin new adventures and leave the past behind. LP Meaghan K.

The Legacy of King Jewelers: Celebrating a Century as South Florida Premier Luxury Jeweler by Jeffrey Rausch 1912 was a landmark year. The Titanic embarked on her fateful voyage, New Mexico and Arizona joined the union as the 47th and 48th states, and the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel opened its doors on Sunset Boulevard. On the east coast, another prestigious establishment open it’s doors—King Jewelers. Five generations later, the jewelry business founded by Louis King continues to dazzle with precious diamonds and gems, prestigious brands, unique designs, and first-class quality and customer service. It’s a legacy the King family proudly carries. ALL IN THE FAMILY Scott King is the 4th generation of Kings to own and operate the family business, which has its flagship Miami location and a newer store in Nashville that opened in 2008. Considered South Florida’s top appraiser, Scott is the expert gemologist of choice for major insurance companies for replacements and valuations. Born and raised in Miami Beach, Scott grew up in his family’s jewelry store. He left for college in the ‘60s with plans to pursue other dreams. After school, however, he returned to South Florida to help out his father at the store—and the rest is history. Scott’s wife, Maxine, has been the company’s jewelry buyer and president for the last 38 years. Their two sons are positioned to lead the next generation of jewelers, son David opened and now runs the Nashville store and Jono is the company’s CFO. “It’s really special being part of this institution,” says David, who left his career on Wall Street to move home to Florida after the September 11 attacks. “We know our identity and roots and it’s interesting to learn about the earlier generations. Some of the systems we use in the computer are from my great grandfather.” He adds that over the past century, the jewelry business has evolved tremendously in the way of technology. Advancements in diamond cutting, for example, now make it possible to cut a perfect diamond. The pieces have become more complex too, especially the timepieces that are crafted with many more complications conceptualized and crafted by cutting edge technology. One thing that hasn’t changed over the years, however, is the King family’s commitment to delivering the highest quality of customer service to their clients, as well as, the most magnificent jewelry and timepieces from around the globe. “We pick all of our diamonds literally by hand,” says David, who adds that they are very selective about the gems they display in their showcases. “We select the highest quality piece for the best value in each category.”

As one of the few jewelers on the east coast to sell Harry Winston, King’s also carries the best luxury brands like; Breguet, Chanel, Roger Dubuis, Jeager LeCoultre, IWC, Chopard, Forevermark, & Tacori Diamond engagement rings, in addition to their stunning signature prive’ line. The goal is to match every client with the perfect piece of jewelry that suits their style and personality at the best value. There are products and price points for everyone, which have helped the business become the personal jeweler to many generations of South Florida families. “We like to focus on family heirlooms and build lifetime relationships,” says David. On any given day, you might also run into celebrities in our salons. Famous clients have included the Rat Pack, Elton John, Carmen Electra, Paul Newman and professional athletes’ to name a few. King Jewelers was recently nominated as South Florida’s #1 Jeweler and was named the 25th best Jeweler in the United States by Harper’s Bazaar. Luxury concierge and personal shopping available.

SHOULD HO, HO, HO TURN INTO NO, NO, NO THIS HOLIDAY SEASON? TIPS ON HOW TO SHOP SAFE AND SMART In spite of the continued economic slowdown, each year holiday spending continues to increase. From 2010 to 2011 holiday spending increased 4.1% and expectations indicate spending is likely to be even higher this year. With millions of Americans still facing financial problems with unemployment and debt, now is not the time to overspend. To keep holiday costs down, consumers need to create holiday budget strategies that help them save. New shopping holidays seem to pop up every year as retailers clamor for consumer dollars. To help you distinguish between the real deals and the duds I have rounded up the best shopping tips to help you get great gifts and not get over your head in debt! MAKE YOUR LIST. Create a list of all of the gifts you need to buy for the holidays now. Write down specific items you want to buy for each person and do some research to determine the estimated cost of each gift. Be as specific as possible to help you avoid impulse shopping in the store, which always increases your holiday spending. CHECK IT (MORE THAN) TWICE. Once you have your list, check it regularly to compare it to sales and special offers you find.

Check online, check your local newspapers and keep an eye out for sales. Every time you find a deal on a gift that’s on your list, write down the information for the sale and how much you will save. If you find a better deal later, change the information so you always have the information on the best deal written down. For more expensive gifts make certain to shop around as prices can vary widely. DON’T DEVIATE. Retailers put in hard work to make attractive store displays intended to pull you into spending more money throughout the holiday season. Shopping with a list decreases the potential for impulse purchases, but only if you can commit to sticking to your list. Remember, if you didn’t intend on buying something, then even if the items are on sale this increase the amount you planned to spend. MAKE FRIENDS ONLINE. “Like” stores that you want to shop at on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter. Many retailers will offer exclusive deals and promotions to their social media audience that you won’t find anywhere else. STAY SAFE. Only shop from stores that you recognize and only enter credit card information if you know the

site is secure. A secure website address starts with “https://” so if you don’t see an “s” in the address prefix, don’t enter your information. The last thing you need during holiday shopping is identity theft and the hassle of chasing down fraudsters. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FREE SHIPPING. Shopping online early allows you to use free ground shipping options without the worry that your gifts won’t arrive on time. With so many days before the holidays begin, you can buy gifts online and use free shipping to save money. Howard Dvorkin, CPA, is the founder of Consolidated Credit Counseling Services, Inc. , and the author of Credit Hell: How To Dig Out of Debt. He is also personal finance expert and consumer advocate who has been helping people with their finances for more than two decades.

GOOGLE REVISES THE RULES OF SEARCH: IS YOUR SITE “PENGUIN” READY? Google has changed the rules for ranking websites, and you may have seen your site either move up a few notches or get knocked down several pages. Either way, your business needs to be smarter about how it generates visitors now that the new criteria, called “Penguin,” have gone into effect. While Google doesn’t explicitly state its new criteria, they are designed to detect and punish websites that try to trick search engines into thinking the sites are popular. Google frowns on what’s called “keyword stuffing,” the practice of putting key search engine terms over and over on a web page. The search engine giant also penalizes companies that pay for inbound links to drive visitors to their sites and for links to low-quality websites. Understanding and staying current with Google’s changes is difficult and time-consuming. A professional firm like Boardroom Communications Inc. can help a business analyze its website, make recommendations and provide professional assistance. Here are some Boardroom tips on how to keep your website fresh: UÊ Stay up to date with changes to Google’s search criteria by following its Webmaster Central Blog. In this game of cat and mouse, the cat changes the rules regularly. UÊ Watch for a spike in links to your website that produces

negative SEO. A competitor may be linking your website to bad sites to hurt your Google ranking. Try to pull down the IP address of the offending links to avoid a hit. UÊ Do not use link exchanges, which are banner ads on the websites of companies that have agreed to share ads among themselves. The links supposedly increase the popularity of your website, but, under “Penguin” rules, Google penalizes such behavior.

Grille 401 Steak and...Sushi? By Shannon Marie Tarrant

G

rille 401 is one of the newest hot spots to join the scene in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Conveniently situated on the corner of East Las Olas Boulevard and Southeast Fifth Avenue, this epicurean delight beckons you from the street. The view of their brilliantly lit casings of wine are enough to draw you in. As you step through the doors, you’re welcomed into a modern, rustic setting that exudes the warmth of a traditional steak house. Local artist Marcia K. Moore’s works are featured throughout, adding a Florida feel to this intimate setting that lends itself to socializing. As you’re seated, the abstract wooden design on the back wall draws your eye to the bustling, open kitchen where head Chef Rick Schwager and his team use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. You may decide to start with their signature appetizer, the Crispy Crab

Savory Lunchtime Fare Grille 401 is also open for lunch, with their full dinner menu offerings in addition to a Light & Healthy seasonal menu available from 11:30am-4:00pm. With options ranging from $10-$13, even the most price conscious individual can enjoy a gourmet lunch. Some of this seasons offerings include menu items such as: Fritters. Don’t be deterred by the heavy fritters of your past – the shredded phyllo dough that surrounds the crab, shrimp and risotto center is light and airy. There’s also wide variety of sushi options. One of our favorites is the Osaka Style Pressed Sushi – fresh tuna, avocado, sticky rice, and spicy tuna presented in a stacked fashion. Alternately, you may want to try one of their fresh salads as a starter. heir Steak, Gorgonzola and Spinach Salad has the tartness of the apples, combined with the marinated tenderloin, spiced pecans, cherry tomatoes and goat cheese. Or you could try something a little more light and earthy, like the Fresh Beet and Goat Cheese Salad. It’s a delicious combination of fresh, roasted stripped candied beets with spiced pecans and is topped off with a herb vinaigrette dressing and a warm, panko-encrusted

Basil Pasta with Goat Cheese- Penne pasta tossed with basil pesto and topped with crumbled goat cheese. Grilled Chicken Sandwich- Herb marinated chicken breast served on a toasted bun with basil mayo, bibb lettuce, avocado, and tomato, served with peanut and ginger coleslaw. Barbecued Salmon- Fresh fillet of Atlantic salmon prepared on the woodfire grill and basted with house-made barbecue sauce, served with kale salad.

goat cheese. As for the entrees, the Prime Rib Sandwich is served sliced thin on a baguette, with horseradish sauce, au jus, and a side of shoestring fries,. The Truffle Fettuccini Alfredo with Wild Mushrooms is deliciously creamy. You can also add grilled chicken or shrimp to this delightful dish. Being a licensed and registered provider of Certified Angus Beef, it would be a shame not to try one of their perfectly seasoned steaks, prepared on their wood-fire grill and accompanied by a salt-crusted baked potato with all the fixings. We

recommend the Bone-In Ribeye. Don’t forget to leave room for one of their fresh in-house desserts. After much deliberation, we found ourselves trying one of almost everything. The carrot cake was moist and warm with a creamy frosting. The key lime pie was delectable with a lime zest and pecan crust, filled with a perfectly flavored, tangy center. The bread pudding is served warm with a berry sauce that will leave you wishing it were socially acceptable to lick your plate. Before we left, we got a peek at the upper level, which offers additional seating overlooking the main dining

area. Also located on the upper level is a private dining room that seats 12. With a big screen TV and all the necessary audiovisual connections, it provides a great space for meetings and private events. To round off the night, we made a stop in the bar, which is warmly lit and decorated, offering high top booth seating and stools. Inventive offerings combined with a hip location make Grille 401 a destination to add to your must-dine list. 401 E Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 954 767-0222 Hours: Mon- Thu 11:30am-11:00pm, Fri-Sat 11:30am-12:00am, Sun 11:30am-10:00pm

another thing...

THE FIVE RULES FOR CREATIVE SUCCESS IN 2013 BY BRUCE TURKEL

Seems like many of the blogs and articles I read just posted their best or worst of lists for 2012. I thought maybe it would be a little more useful to create a list of ďŹ ve important ideas for marketing success in 2013. 1. THE FUTURE STARTED YESTERDAY. When I speak on social media issues at corporate conferences, I always tell my audiences that â&#x20AC;&#x153;this whole Internet thing is going to catch onâ&#x20AC;Śitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be huge.â&#x20AC;? Before you award me The Master Of The Bleeding Obvious medal of honor, please take my statement to heart. If your company hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully embraced the new online technologies, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already out of business; you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it yet. 2. GOOD ENOUGH IS GOOD ENOUGH. Trained as an art director, I always considered part of my position to be the protector of quality. We designers would spend hours on typesetting, worrying about kerning and line spacing, for example â&#x20AC;&#x201C; painstaking chores that can now be done with the click of a mouse. In the name of ďŹ ne resolution, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also ďŹ ght with our clients to spend enormous sums for 16 or 35mm ďŹ lm when today you can buy a higher resolution Canon HDSLR for less than two grand. But regardless of what equipment you use, when was the last time you heard someone complain about the resolution on YouTube? As Sting sang in Consider Me Gone, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To search for perfection is all very well. But to look for heaven is to live here in hell.â&#x20AC;? Or as Seth Godin wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get it out the doorâ&#x20AC;? already. 3. FASTER, CHEAPER. BETTER. PICK ALL THREE. The old line used to be, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Faster. Cheaper. Better. Pick any two.â&#x20AC;? If you wanted it fast and good it was going to be expensive. Good and cheap would take time. And if you wanted it fast and cheap it would suck. But that was back in the day when our clients used to ask â&#x20AC;&#x153;what have you done for me lately?â&#x20AC;? With the advent of online technologies, todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question is â&#x20AC;&#x153;what have you done for me next?â&#x20AC;? As the taciturn comedian Steven Wright quipped, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I put instant coffee in a microwave oven and almost went back in time.â&#x20AC;? Or to quote Groucho Marx, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stay a week or two, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stay the summer through. But I am telling you that I must be going.â&#x20AC;? 4. BE DIFFERENT. OR BE DEAD. In his best-selling book â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Whole New Mind,â&#x20AC;? Daniel Pink writes about the dangers of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Three Asâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Abundance, Asia, and Automation. Pink explains that anything that can be created in

82

DECEMBER 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

abundance will be; anything that can be made in Asia will; and anything that can be automated will be as well. As Pink sees it, if your products or services are so generic or duplicatable that those three factors can come to bear, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in big trouble. Pinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solution? Develop and cultivate six senses: design, story, symphony, empathy, play, and meaning. His example of a successful business that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be copied; Madonna. (Needless to say, his book was written before Lady Gaga.) In other words, just standing up isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough anymore. To be successful you have to stand out and stand for something. Otherwise, no one will care. 5. THEY DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T BUY WHAT YOU DO. THEY BUY WHO YOU ARE. Because of the three As, and because good enough is now good enough, consumers no longer need to buy products or services for their functions. Not because the functions no longer matter but because the functions have become ubiquitous. Instead, the best sellers are purchased because of the relationships they create with their buyers. If Madonna is the perfect product, then what steps can you take to build your brand and its value (both real and perceived) to your customer? After all, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not providing it then someone else will. And as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already seen, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it faster, cheaper and maybe, even better. Taken together, these ďŹ ve observations may appear discouraging, suggesting that technology has superseded the need for quality and craftsmanship. Instead, I think they provide benchmarks for building a successful business in this new technological age. As I see it, the future for everyone in my business and all creative businesses is in their ability to create powerful, compelling ideas. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new way to get attention, a new way to deliver customer service or a new way to build a better mousetrap, 2013 will be the year of the idea. After all, despite how powerful computers have become, they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started to thinkâ&#x20AC;Śyet. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll explore that further with you soon. In the meantime, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to a happy, healthy and very creative 2013 for you and everyone you hold dear!
