Veterans don’t have to look very far for help Need assistance? The Philadelphia Veterans Advisory Commission consults with government and nonprofits. Whether they are veterans recently returning from battlefields in the Middle Eastern desert or drifting aimlessly through deserted streets, the city, state and federal governments make resources available to help them reintegrate into the communities they served to protect. In this city, in an office just outside the City Hall courtyard, a division of the Philadelphia Veterans Advisory Commission is available to help. PVAC is directed to consult with government and nonprofit agencies that distribute veterans’ benefits and to advise them of entitlements. The office is a conduit. If a veteran is in need of assistance, officials point them in the right direction. Wanda Pate-Dennis, veterans coordinator for the Veterans Advisory Commission, works with more than 50 organizations. For veterans just coming home, “The most important thing is for them

to know that there are resources and benefits for them and that we can help them get to those resources and benefits,” she said. For veterans who are homeless, the office can help arrange shelter, find alcohol and drug treatment programs, and connect with the federal veterans affairs organization. “We count on veterans organizations who are providers of these services,” she said. PVAC is composed of seven members appointed by the mayor and City Homicide

Council president. Ari Merretazon, who represents the Pointman Soldiers Heart Ministry, maintains that only an independent veterans affairs office with a fulltime director can appropriately serve the veteran population. City officials have said that is not entirely true. “We need an advocate and facilitator at the city level to make sure that veterans who are supposed to receive benefits receive those benefits,” he said. David Kamioner, executive director of the Philadelphia Veterans Comfort House, said the Veterans Advisory Commission office “acts as a clearinghouse,” and members wade through the bureaucracy to get help to veterans. “[Wanda Pate-Dennis] knows where those bones are buried,” he said. Pate-Dennis said that while her office doesn’t have a director, it can get things done, and that’s all that matters. “We’re not saying we’ve conquered, we’ve got the battle done,” PateDennis said. “This is an ongoing fight. This is an ongoing charge toward making sure that every veteran knows there are resources.”

Given the deep funding cuts coming out of Harrisburg, which have led to billion-dollar deficits in the Philadelphia public school and social services systems, it may rankle some residents to learn that Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett is the highest-earning governor in the country, according to a survey released by the Council of State Governments. Corbett, one of just seven governors whose 2013 salary increased over 2012 levels, earns $187,256 a year. The survey notes Corbett has refused at least three cost-of-living adjustments, which makes his actual pay closer to $175,000.

Investigators said two men – both wearing darkcolored pants and one armed with a handgun – forced their way into the residence shortly after 6:30 a.m. Once inside, they allegedly entered a bedroom where a woman and her daughter were sleeping. After the two awoke, one of the men fired a single round at the woman, striking her in the head, police said. The suspects then left the home empty-handed.

Supreme Court guts key part of landmark Voting Rights Act Rights. Obama calls on Congress to pass a new law ensuring equal access to voting for all. The Supreme Court yesterday gutted a key part of the landmark Voting Rights Act, passed in 1965 to end a century of attempts by former slaveholding states to block black citizens from voting. In a 5-4 ruling with the court’s conservatives in the majority, the justices ruled that Congress had used obsolete reasoning in continuing to force nine states, mainly in the South, to get federal approval for voting rule changes affecting blacks

and other minorities. The court ruled in favor of officials from Alabama, by declaring invalid a section of the law that set a formula to determine which states need federal approval to change voting laws. “I am deeply disappointed with the Supreme Court’s decision today,” President Barack Obama said in a statement. The ruling upended important legal protections for minority voters that were a key achievement of the U.S. civil rights movement of the 1960s led by Martin Luther King Jr. The decision also placed the burden on Congress — sharply divided along party lines — to pass any new voting rights law.

Voting act

Obama, Dems vow to act on voter rights after ruling President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress yesterday promised to act swiftly to restore protections for the voting rights of African-Americans and other minorities after the Supreme Court struck down a core provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. It was unclear whether Republicans, who control the House, would provide the support needed to offset the high court’s ruling.

Russia rules out expulsion of Snowden, rejects US ‘ravings’ Finding refuge. Washington has gone to great lengths to try to ensure Snowden has nowhere to go. Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed yesterday that a former U.S. spy agency contractor sought by the United States was in the transit area of a Moscow airport but ruled out handing him over to Washington, dismissing U.S. criticisms as “ravings and rubbish.” In his first public comments since the fugitive flew in on Sunday, Putin appeared to make light of the controversy around Edward Snowden, whose flight from U.S. authorities is becoming a source of increasing embarrass-

ment for President Barack Obama. Asked by a journalist about the affair, he smiled fleetingly. “I, myself, would prefer not to deal with these issues. It’s like shearing a piglet: There’s a lot of squealing, but there’s little wool,” he told reporters. His refusal to hand over Snowden risked deepening a rift with the United States that has also sucked in China and threatens relations between countries that may be essential in settling global conflicts, including the Syrian civil war.

Putin said the 30-yearold American was in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport and, not having gone through passport control, was free to leave. “The sooner he chooses his final destination, the better it would be for us and for himself,” he said. Snowden has applied for asylum in Ecuador, which is reportedly still considering the application; the United States is trying to persuade the governments of countries where he might head to hand him over.

Obama details plan to thwart Presidential power. Obama seeks to limit carbon emissions and stop pollution. President Barack Obama launched a new plan to tackle climate change yesterday with a call to limit carbon pollution from all U.S. power plants. Obama’s long-awaited plan, detailed in a speech at Georgetown University, drew sharp criticism from the coal industry, which would be hit hard Quoted

“Laying out specific details makes it a lot more difficult for the president to turn back.” Michael Levi, head of the Council on Foreign Relations’ energy and climate program

by carbon limits, and Republicans, who accused the Democratic president of advancing policies that harm the economy. Obama’s first-term attempt to reduce climatewarming carbon emissions in a “cap and trade” system was thwarted by Congress, and his administration’s long process of studying whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline has raised the hackles of business groups and Republican opponents. Using his executive powers, Obama said he was directing the Environmental Protection Agency to craft new emissions rules for thousands of power plants, the bulk of which burn coal and account for roughly onethird of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. “We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat Earth society,” Obama said, referencing critics who do not believe climate change is happening. REUTERS

Quoted

“Our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution. The net effects of the pipeline’s impact on our climate will be absolutely critical to determining whether this project is allowed to go forward.”Obama

Obama to climate change Keystone. approve pipeline only The plan’s domestic highlights The White House yesterday released a plan to cut global carbon pollution and address the effects of climate change in three broad ways: cutting carbon pollution domestically, preparing the country to be resilient to climate-related impacts and leading international efforts to combat global warming. Here are the key points of the administration’s Climate Action Plan: •

Obama will issue a presidential order to direct the country’s chief environmental regulator, the Environmental Protection Agency, to complete performance standards for lowering carbon emissions from existing power plants with feedback from states, power companies and other stakeholders. The EPA is directed to finalize carbon limits for new power plants by Sept. 20.

The EPA is directed to draft carbon limits for existing power plants by June 2014, to be finalized one year later.

The Department of the Interior is tasked with permitting enough renewable energy projects — wind and solar, for example — on public lands by 2020 to power more than 6 million homes. The agency is also directed with installing 100 megawatts of renewables on federally assisted housing by 2020.

The United States has set a goal to reduce carbon pollution by at least 3 billion metric tons cumulatively by 2030, more than half the annual carbon pollution from the U.S. energy sector, via efficiency standards for appliances and federal buildings.

line, which would carry oil from Canada to refineries in Texas, was one of several topics Obama was expected to address in a climate change speech. REUTERS

Analysis

Coal company shares take hit Share prices for major U.S. coal mining companies slipped again yesterday after falling sharply on Monday in anticipation of the president’s climate plan. The EPA is routinely challenged in court, both by industry groups seeking to quash rules and by green groups trying to push the agency to set tougher standards. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Republican-leaning states have petitioned the Supreme Court to review rules to cut greenhouse gas emissions. The details of the new regulations will be drafted over the next year, and their costs are still to be determined. Obama wants them finalized by June 2015.

Holly Madison is engaged, with a big rock to prove it

CULTURE

Twitter feed We check in with some of Hollywood’s biggest names to see what they’ve been up to — in their own words, in 140 characters or fewer.

Today, Mindy Kaling is full, Chris Colfer wants to get up in the air and Lena Dunham is having pet trouble. @mindykaling: Cookies, cupcakes, Italian ice, sushi, steak, fries, creamed spinach, onion rings, s’mores, on my birthday we ate like I’m a Roman Emperor @chriscolfer: Who is in charge of the minion blimp flying over LA and how can I get invited for a ride??? @lenadunham: Things my dog has eaten today: an egg shell, a plastic bag that once contained meat, a Justin Bieber singing toothbrush

Holly Madison! You in danger, girl! It looks like the reality TV star is going through with her engagement with party promoter (and father to her infant daughter, Rainbow), Pasquale Rotella. She showed off her giant new engagement ring, which was designed by Rotella, on her blog and to People magazine. The 18-carat yellow diamond ring is surrounded by pink and yellow flowers made from diamonds. And, oh yeah — owls. “Because we love owls, there is a hidden owl engraved on the rose gold in between two of the flowers,” she says. “The band is art nouveau-inspired, to go with the flowers.” Holly Madison’s ginormous owl-themed ring is hopefully big enough that she will overlook the fact that she’s marrying a man who will probably go to prison in the next year. Rotella is facing more

than 13 years in prison on bribery, embezzlement, conspiracy and conflict of interest charges, per reports. The L.A. County district attorney says that Rotella, who owns a firm called Insomniac Events, used more than $2.5 million in funds from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to pay off city officials. Rotella would use the coliseum to host raves. Rotella is currently out on a $1.8 million bail and is due back in court July 29. So basically, Madison, who was previously engaged to the 80-something Hugh Hefner, likes to choose mates who she thinks she won’t have to be with for very long.

Sweetin separates from third husband Jodie Sweetin might not have the career of big TV and movie stars, but she has the love life of one. The former “Full House” star has separated from her third husband, musician Morty Coyle, after a little over a year of marriage. Just take a

moment to let that sink in: Jodie is on her third marriage, and she’s only 31. And it only gets sadder: Jodie wants full custody of their daughter, Beatrix, 2, as well as their car, a Toyota Avalon. Meanwhile, the Olsen twins are probably lighting giant cigars with burning $100 bills. The middle sisters always miss out.

Miley Cyrus threatens her dad on Twitter

A word to the wise: If Miley Cyrus is trying to get a hold of you, answer her texts. Otherwise she might publicly threaten you. On Tuesday, Miley tweeted at her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, “@billyraycyrus since you won’t reply to my texts I’m giving you an hour to tell the truth or ill tell it for you.” Attached to the tweet was a pic of Miley smiling for the camera with an unidentified older woman, according to Hollywood Life. Billy Ray is in the midst of a divorce from Miley’s

mom, Tish Cyrus. Does Miley’s tweet have something to do with their split? We’ll never know, as it was quickly deleted and disavowed by Miley, who tweeted, “Wtf? My twitter was just actin all types of cray!” So there are three possibilities here. One, Miley was hacked. Two, she meant to send a DM and sent a tweet instead. Or three, Billy Ray did what she wanted before the hour was up. -- Written by Melinda Taub

Storytelling, like in the great â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s movies like â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Godfatherâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made anymore. Those are now TV shows on cable. How do you work with your fellow actors? The more a group of actors feels like a family to me, the safer I feel. If I go to a place with another person as a character, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a foundation of friendship and respect thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really helpful. The fact that we all love each other helps. Mitch put this group together. Everyone makes me better.

What about working with your husband? At home heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my husband. At work heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my boss. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very weird dynamic. It first happened years ago, that we had a chance to work together [on 1993â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three Q&A

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it like not always knowing where your character will wind up versus a ďŹ lm, where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a deďŹ nite ending? In a film youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stuck with a script. Television is open-ended. You never know whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to live, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to die. I live with [Glazer], and until we get the scripts, I have no clue whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on. Some of them have been shocking. I love that element of surprise. It keeps me very nimble as an actor. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than any way Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked.

of Heartsâ&#x20AC;?]. Both of us were driving to work, and one of us went, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working together.â&#x20AC;? Some ďŹ lm actors are amazed at how quickly television shooting goes by. I always felt as an actor if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it by the third take I was in trouble. I did a pretty big movie with an actor who did 56 takes, during a shot where I had to cry. He was trying to get to a place, and by the end of it I looked like a raccoon or a squirrel, a monster. Shooting fast, it separates the grown-ups from the little kids. You just have to do it. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that safety net [on TV] where you can reshoot or come back. Movies shoot three pages a day. We can shoot 12, easily. It probably doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound like much, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daunting.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Devious Maidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; features â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;two worlds collidingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Television. The new Lifetime series follows ďŹ ve Hispanic maids who work for some of the wealthiest families in Beverly Hills. For decades, audiences knew her as a dramatic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some may even say melodramatic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; soap actress. But there is another side to Susan Lucci. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is so hysterically funny, and I think that is something really new and interesting because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think people have seen her be this funny and this free,â&#x20AC;? says Ana Ortiz, who stars with Lucci on the new Lifetime series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Devious Maids.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to look at people on film doing comedy,â&#x20AC;? says Lucci. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How do they do that with so many takes, so many bits and pieces.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I already had so much respect for them.â&#x20AC;?

swerve from giggling over a banner printed with cat pictures to citing the influence of early 20th-century Italian futurist Giacomo Balla. “Candy Coated Wonderland” uses selections from the museum’s collection of children’s fancy dress costumes as a jumping-off point for a roomsize installation. Candy seized on details from the outfits, which include a Peter Pan costume, a harlequin dress and a painter’s smock, to enlarge and print as patterns or sculptural elements. The art spills onto the walls and floor, reflected in a fun-house mirror, as costume-clad mannequins play out miniature storybook narratives. “When I see people working on their art, they go away and they have a

little bliss moment,” Candy said. “So with these magical stories I’m trying to merge art-making and that kind of bliss. Even though it’s wild and busy, it’s still very calming.” The centerpiece of Art Splash is an exhibition of work by Philadelphia-born children’s book illustrator Jerry Pinkney, who won the Caldecott Medal in 2010 for his picture book “The Lion and the Mouse.” In addition, “Family Portrait” gathers a diverse range of photographers’ images of family life; “Design for the Modern Child” displays contemporary design for children; and “All Dressed Up” compares adult and children’s garments.

It wasn’t much of a stretch for Candy Coated to create a show that would appeal to kids and adults equally. The Philly-based artist (formerly known as Candy Depew) regularly pedals her bike-mounted studio to schools and communities to teach people the basics of silk-screening, encouraging people to get hands-on with art and indulge their most playful whims. “I see the kid in everybody, actually,” Candy said recently during a walkthrough of her new installation, “Candy Coated Wonderland,” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The show is part of the museum’s summer-long Art Splash program, which brings together five familyfriendly exhibitions as well as a number of interactive activities and programs in the Perelman Building. It’s not hard to see the kid in Candy Coated. From the sweet-toothed name to her bright red shock of cotton candy hair and pixielike lilt, the artist embodies the very whimsy that she brings to her work. Her vision is, if anything, willfully naïve, though she can effortlessly

Let your phone find a concert for you and your friends Listen. New apps locate nearby live music events based on usersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tastes. Music lovers looking for a nearby concert can turn to apps that detect their location and list nearby live events based on the type of tunes they and their friends like. Apps such as Bandsintown and Songkick scan fansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; music libraries on their mobile devices and iTunes, along with music streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora and SoundCloud, to learn musical preferences so fans never miss a show. Bandsintown also shows users which bands their friends are heading to see. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are two reasons why someone might go to a concert. The first is that they like a particular style

of music or the artist. The second is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a social event with friends,â&#x20AC;? said Julien Mitelberg, CEO of NewYork based Bandsintown. The app makes recommendations for concerts nearby and notifies users when friends indicate they are going to see a show. Users can also invite friends using the app, which is available worldwide for iPhone and Android. Songkick, also available worldwide for iPhone and

Android, gathers information from ticket vendors, websites and newspapers to compile its database of concerts. An app from music streaming service Rhapsody, called Rhapsody Concerts, shows upcoming concerts nearby and lets users stream a bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s albums before deciding whether to buy tickets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our customers like to go see live music. But there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really any services

When it comes to a backyard in Philadelphia, size matters Real estate. What’s your home worth? We talk to local Realtors to find out. Admit it: When you see your neighbor’s home for sale, you go online to find out how much it’s listed for. It gets you thinking, “How much is my home worth?” With the housing market a fickle thing to follow, we learned a few tricks to help figure out what your Philly digs could go for, short of bringing in an official appraiser. Timothy M. Garrity, a Realtor at US Spaces who works primarily in the Manayunk and Roxborough areas, says the first factor that influences a home’s price is one that you might expect: its condition. “By condition, I am referring to the age of the home — the newer, the

The condition of your kitchen is an important factor in determining the value of your home. / BEN MCGUINN Buy and sell “While prices have risen, it’s still possible to get a bargain; but with interest rates poised to rise, time is running out,” Haupt says. “Market inventory in Philadelphia County has fallen every month since

pricier — and the quality of the finishes, such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors,” he says. Parking is also key.

August of 2011, and with fewer choices on the market and more buyers, sellers are getting choosier about which offers they are going to accept and often holding out for a higher offer.”

“Private parking makes the price go up, and street parking makes it less desirable,” says Garrity. Realtor Abe Haupt, also of US Spaces, agrees: “Park-

ing is a deal breaker for many buyers. Some buyers are willing to live in a much more modest house if they can be assured a garage or some type of deeded parking.” Regardless of your location, parking spaces are coveted commodities, and buyers are taking note of available spots. It was once thought that an ugly or cramped bathroom would make the house hard to sell. Not so, according to Haupt. “There is a common misconception that the quality of a bathroom will affect the price of a home. In my opinion, buyers aren’t nearly as concerned with this as they are with the size of the kitchen and the outdoor areas.” A bad bathroom is a challenge, but is surmountable. The size of your backyard, however, won’t be changing any time soon.

Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis, the fashion darlings behind sustainable brand Suno, who have charmed the sleek and fabulous set with their colorful and quirky plays on ethnic prints, recently picked up the coveted 2013 CFDA Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear. The duo tells us about their next step and where we can find them when the 90-degree temps roll through.

ACCESSORIZE ME! GADGETS TO ENHANCE YOUR GAMES

Sidescroller

LAWRENCE BONK LAWRENCE.BONK@METRO.US

Video games are not just about console and television. There’s a whole world out there of sometimes cool, sometimes ridiculous accessory devices. Here are reviews of a few new things vying for your precious livingroom space.

Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Hauppauge, $199

•••••

Along with makeup tutorials and creepy videos in which mustached men try to hypnotize you, the video-game walkthrough is one of the more popular YouTube genres. A vital tool in their creation is an HD recording device. You’d

be hard-pressed to find an item more up to this task than Hauppauge’s new HD PVR 2 gamecentric video recorder. It offers live recording in 1080p so you’ll never miss your most precious gaming moments. It works flawlessly, but the nextgen consoles (particularly the PS4) are eyeing this idea for their own systems.

Korg Kaossilator Pro+ Korg, $299

•••••

Korg’s new touchscreen-based synthesizer is only ostensibly gaming-related. It is, however, a perfect

entry point to jump into the burgeoning world of chiptune (video game) music. The sound bank contains tons of NES and SNES blips, and the unit is built from the ground up to cater to non-musicians. You’ll be making it sound like Mario is rhythmically collecting coins in no time. And, yes, it can also make other kinds of music.

Safety. Remote brake lights warn of danger before it’s seen

Genius Arcade F-1000 Stick Genius, $60

Intelligent brake lights may soon warn drivers of danger ahead — even before they can see the hazard. / MASHABLE

•••••

Modern controllers are great for certain genres — first-person shooters being the best example. Fighting games, however, really shine when you get a hold of an old-school joystick. The F-1000 is a great example of modern design mixed with retro favorites, like turbo buttons. This is all you’ll need to be a major player in the MAKE OLD-TIME world of competitive VIDEO GAME MUSIC gaming. Just a warnWITH THE KORG ing: It only supports KAOSSILATOR PRO+. PS3 and PC. If you are TOMUJII an Xbox gamer, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

Ford is working on remote, wireless brake lights that warn drivers, who will see a dashboard light illuminate when there’s danger ahead. It’s easy to see the brake lights of a panicstopping car right in front of you. But what if that car ahead is around a corner, over a hill or driving through a dense fog or rainstorm? Ford is testing technology that can warn you of such danger as part of its Safe Intelligent Mobility research project that involves 20 futuristic systems that aim to make

cars safer. The remote brakelight system would be particularly adept at avoiding chain-reaction collisions, where a car far ahead of you comes to a sudden stop and multiple cars can’t stop in time to avoid a multi-car collision. With this brake light on your dashboard, drivers will be warned of panic stops before they become directly involved in their aftermath. Ford’s field testing took place in Frankfurt, Germany, and included 500 test drivers in 120 vehicles. MASHABLE

Large meals keep me awake at night with heartburn. Help! Heartburn, or as it is more officially known, Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease, produces a variety of symptoms that may include chest pain or burning, belching, a sore throat, an acid or bitter taste, coughing, hoarseness and bad breath. These are due to acid reflux — that is, acid from your stomach which is backed up into your esophagus, where it causes irritation and the symptoms we commonly call heartburn or indigestion. Acid is usually blocked from the esophagus by a constricting sphincter muscle at the entrance to the stomach. This muscle sometimes becomes weakened as we age. Body position (lying down or bending over) or eating a large meal may push acidic stomach fluids into the esophagus. Certain foods, like citrus juice, alcohol, pepper, caffeine, peppermint and carbonated beverages, may also contribute to GERD. Increased abdominal pressure due to obesity and pregnancy can similarly result in acid reflux. GERD should be properly diagnosed and treated as it not only results in discomfort but also may increase your risk

for bleeding, narrowing of your esophagus or even esophageal cancer. Diagnostic tests may include an endoscopy with a fiber-optic scope to look into your upper digestive system, a measure of the acidity in the esophagus and stomach or X-rays that look at the motion of the esophagus as you swallow solids and liquids. Treatment includes modifying your diet to eliminate contributing factors like caffeine and acidic and spicy foods. It also includes modifying

your habits to reduce your meal size and eliminate tobacco and alcohol. If you are bothered by clearcut symptoms of acid reflux, a trial of one of the common over-the-counter acid blocking products is usually worthwhile prior to seeking advanced relief. For stubborn symptoms, stronger medication to decrease or block the amount of acid secreted by the stomach may be prescribed by your physician after an evaluation to look for complicating factors.

Yes, you should get an HIV test Health. National HIV Testing Day is the perfect day to do it. It’s not at the top of anyone’s fun-things-to-do list (far from it!), but tomorrow is National HIV Testing Day, and it isn’t a date to ignore. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in the United States alone, around 1.2 million people have HIV and an estimated one in five people don’t know they’re infected. Dr. Donna Futterman, director of the Adolescent AIDS Program at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in Bronx, N.Y., says everyone who is sexually active — everyone — should be tested annually. “People aren’t totally aware,” Futterman says. “Sixty percent of teens and younger adults don’t know they are infected, and 20 percent of older adults don’t know either.

This is why HIV continues to spread.” Besides stemming the spread of infection, HIV testing means that people with the virus can be diagnosed and get the medical help they need. HIV is not the same horrifyingly deadly disease it was in the ‘80s; it’s now survivable with treatment. “We are trying for prevention, and to get the message to people that you can avoid HIV. But we also want people to know that if you have it, we can help,” Futterman said. Futterman says that your doctor might not think to ask you for an HIV test, and that you should be the one to bring it up. “Everyone should get HIV testing, but it’s just not done,” she says. “You have to think about it for yourself and protect yourself.”

“There’s no human behavior change without constant messaging. People have not gotten the message. It might not kill you, but HIV is still a big deal. It’s a lifelong infection.” Dr. Futterman, on the National HIV Testing Day campaign

You can get an HIV test that’s fast, simple, painless and anonymous (or confidential). Oral fluid tests are a quick swab in the mouth that can detect the virus in less than an hour. Blood and urine tests are also options. One new way to get an HIV test is through a combo test. HIV combo tests (also called fourthgeneration tests) can provide accurate results within two weeks of exposure to HIV (normally, you have to wait three or four weeks to get an accurate diagnosis) because they can spot antigens — the actual HIV virus — as well as antibodies. The blood test is made by Abbott, which was the first lab to market an HIV test, in 1985. The tests are covered by insurance.

Melanoma and metastasis Topic of Study: Melanoma therapy to prevent metastasis Location of study: U.S. Study subjects: Mice Results: The ďŹ rst potential drug to ďŹ ght melanoma metastasizing is close to development, states a report in the journal ACS Chemical Biology. The drug would be used in addition to a laser to kill skin cancer cells in both the main tumor and to stop cancerous cells spreading to other parts of the body, which is known as metastasis. SigniďŹ cance: Researchers hoped that this new therapy will improve on an existing one called photodynamic therapy (PDT), which involves a drug that kills cancer cells when exposed to light. PDT only aďŹ&#x20AC;ects the main tumor and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stem the spread of cancer cells.

Stress and smoking after 9/11 Topic of Study: Post-9/11 Stress and Smoking Cessation Location of study: U.S. Study subjects: Data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Results: One million former smokers across the country began smoking again after the 9/11 attacks, according to a Weill Cornell Medical College public health study. Researchers also looked at smoking

habits after the Oklahoma City bombing but found that event didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aďŹ&#x20AC;ect smoking rates in the U.S. as dramatically as 9/11. SigniďŹ cance: The studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead author concluded that the results revealed a hidden health and economic cost of terrorism. Financially, he estimated the cost of 9/11-induced smoking to government at $530 million to $830 million, with a potential to run higher if smoking continued beyond 2003.

antibodies in children with autism and celiac disease Location of study: U.S. Study subjects: 140 children, 37 with autism Results: Elevated antibodies to gluten have been found in children with autism, but no link was found to celiac disease, which is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten. The study, which was headed by Dr. Armin Alaedini, assistant professor of medical sciences in Columbia University Medical Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Medicine and the Institute of Human Nutrition, was published in the online journal PLOS ONE.

Topic of Study: Hereditary dystonia and deep brain stimulation Location of study: U.S. Study subjects: 41 patients aged 8-71 Results: The most common form of hereditary dystonia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a movement disorder that can cause crippling muscle contractions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; seems to respond well to deep-brain stimulation, according to a new report. Neurologist Michele Tagliati, director of the Movement Disorders Program at CedarsSinai Medical Center and Dr. Ron L. Alterman, chief of the Division of Neurosurgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, authored the study, which is published in the July issue of the journal Neurosurgery. SigniďŹ cance: The study is focused on early-onset generalized dystonia, which is often associated with the DYT1 gene mutation. Less than 1 percent of the population carries this mutation, but the frequency might be three to ďŹ ve times higher among Ashkenazi Jews.

All can get an ‘A’ in morality Re: ‘Morality needs some absolutes’ (Metro, June 24) Though I am an atheist, I don’t reject religion; I recognize it has much to teach. However, to letter writer Gilbert Colon I would point out that to an atheist, his “objective, divinely inspired” morality is just as non-binding as any. The difference is, while he anticipates an eternal reward, I expect no reward for treating others with respect. I respect any path that leads to goodness, but must question any group that grades goodness on a curve based on belief in a deity.

Learning by example Re: ‘What’s faith ever done for anyone, anyway?’ (Metro, June 18) I’m glad letter writer Amanda Canetti likes The Beatles; I do, too. We often need others to express things differently so we understand the truth more fully. Religion isn’t just about “a deity,” but about humanity. Jesus was human and showed us how to follow God in ordinary life. I need examples to see what does and doesn’t work. DARRELL HARTWICK, VIA EMAIL

Scout: Sixers are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a team in transitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NBA. The team holds the No. 11 pick in tomorrow nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft, assuming they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade up or down. The Sixers still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a coach. There have been reports that CEO Adam Aron is being ousted. Andrew Bynum is a free agent. Yet life goes on. The Sixers pick No. 11 in tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NBA draft, and also hold a pair of second-round picks, Nos. 35 and 42. On draft night, trades can be executed. Rosters can be reshaped.

Steven Adams is a ďŹ t. GETTY IMAGES

What will the Sixers do? Good question. They could retain their No. 11 pick and add a nice piece to a roster that needs tweaking. They could trade it. They could try

and move up or down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sixers have a team in transition for sure,â&#x20AC;? said one NBA scout, who asked to remain anonymous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a setback with the Bynum situation and Doug [Collins] stepping down. They need many things right now, starting with a big man.â&#x20AC;? The Sixers can also increase their depth in the second round. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the teams that draft well in the second round are the ones with the depth in the league,â&#x20AC;? said another scout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sixers will have options.â&#x20AC;?

NBA. The team seems to be in utter disarray as the NBA draft approaches. Are they planning something big? How mixed up are the Sixers? Well, no one is sure who is still collecting paychecks from them. On Monday, reports ran rampant that CEO Adam Aron had been fired. But, according to Aronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Twitter account, he was on vacation in Africa. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine, yet it took the team until late Monday night to release a statement denying the rumors. If only this was the Sixersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biggest problem. They appear to be in limbo with the NBA draft arriving tomorrow. Doug Collins resigned as head coach more than two months ago, and they still havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t replaced him. Meanwhile, most of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top names didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even interview with the team, with some since signing on with other teams. GM Sam Hinkie hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t commented on anything since being hired in mid-May â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not the ongoing coaching search or the possibility of bringing An-

drew Bynum back. The organization has remained silent. In fact, the only voice emanating from the bowels of the Wells Fargo Center has been Julius Erving. While Dr. J didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rip the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brass, he did poke a little fun at Hinkieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s addiction to analytics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turning basketball into rocket science, right?,â&#x20AC;? Erving said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if a team does it and they win, then everybody is going to do it. If the team is a cellar dweller, you can analyze

all they want, nobody is going to follow them.â&#x20AC;? Take it in, Sixers fans. No one seems to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on with this franchise. Will they hire a new coach? Will the GM emerge from his cocoon? Will Bynum return? Either the Sixers are about to look like the smartest guys in the room â&#x20AC;Ś or they are going to remain a clueless enigma with no new championship banners. The one thing Hinkie did say in his introductory

press conference was that big moves matter. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have his first crack at making one of those in Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NBA draft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big moves may only come around every 10 years or so,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question is, how are you going to handle it to put yourself in the best position to make one?â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your move, Mr. Hinkie.

Flyers use compliance buyout on Bryzgalov NHL. The Flyers cut ties with the enigmatic and mostly ineďŹ&#x192;cient goaltender after just two seasons. Flyers fans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and those in the media â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have Ilya Bryzgalov to kick around anymore. After much internal and external debate, the Flyers decided to part ways with their enigmatic goaltender yesterday, just two years into what was supposed to be a nineyear, $51 million deal. As was the case with popular forward Danny Briere last week, the team will exercise a compliance buyout of Bryzgalovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract, which will cost them $22.8 million over the next 14 years, as stipulated by the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cur-

room to fortify the roster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met with Ilya [yesterday] morning and informed him that we are going to exercise compliance buyout of his contract,â&#x20AC;? said GM Paul Holmgren in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a very difficult business decision to make for us. We want to thank Ilya for his time here and wish him all the best moving forward.â&#x20AC;? So ends one of the more disappointing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; yet certainly fascinating â&#x20AC;&#x201D; chapters in Flyers history. While the Bryzgalov era didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide the results team owner Ed Snider was seeking when he engineered the 2011 deal in an effort to bring his franchise some sorely needed stability in goal, it was seldom dull.
