Shutdown affects tourism but much remains open ‘It’s eerie.’ Independence Hall, the main visitor center and the Liberty Bell Center are closed. Laura Pruitt and her husband live in Atlanta and are in Philadelphia visiting their son. They saw some of the city’s historic sites Monday, but they saved their Liberty Bell visit for yesterday. That attraction — along with the Independence Visitor Center on 6th and Market streets — are closed due to the government shutdown. “If I really thought this was going to happen,” said Pruitt, who is leaving the city today, “I probably would have come down here yesterday. It’s just par for our government.” Pruitt is like many other tourists in the city this week who were greeted with closed signs at some popular historical attractions. But Meryl Levitz, president and CEO of the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corp., doesn’t want the shutdown to discourage visitors from taking in the city’s history — or anything else it has to offer. “There’s no single reason to come to Philadelphia,” Levitz said. “We’ll be promoting all the other reasons that have nothing to do with the shutdown

But to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall on a list of closed sites, “It just hurts the heart,” Levitz said. “Hopefully, for many, many reasons, aside from tourism, this will be over with soon enough,” she said. Even though the main Independence Visitor Center is closed, there are three other satellite locations to get tickets, information, maps and more. “It’s eerie down here today,” said Jim Cuorato, president and CEO of the Independence Visitor Center Corp. Yesterday, Cuorato walked around the center’s mall and spoke to some visitors. “I heard a lot of expressions of disappointment,” he said. More than two dozen IVC employees are affected by the shutdown, and administration will not work either if the gridlock in Congress lasts into next week. “If [the shutdown] is short and we can get back to normal operations within a day or two, I think we can recover quickly,” Cuorato said. “If this drags on, I don’t see any good that will come out of it.”

Teenager takes wheel after bus driver bounces Detour. After chasing an aide and the driver off the bus, a teenage boy tried to drive off. A severely autistic 15-year-old student took the wheel of a 10-seat school bus in Drexel Hill, Upper Darby Monday afternoon after a fight forced the driver and an aide off the vehicle, police said yesterday. Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said two 15-year-old boys started fighting in the back of the bus, which carries between six and eight students. The teens are enrolled in Elwyn, which serves intellectually

handicapped young people, he said. In the course of the fight, one teenager strangled the other unconscious, Chitwood said, causing the driver to pull over on the 1500 block of Township Line Road. A bus aide ran out to call police as the driver headed toward the back of the vehicle to try and resolve the situation. When the aide went back, he was chased outside by one of the 15-yearold boys, who then took the wheel. “So now the driver and the aide are outside the bus and the 15-yearold shuts the door,” Chitwood said, “and starts to drive.” Almost simultaneously, Chitwood said, a larger bus with almost 30 kids pulled up close by.

Quoted

“I’m telling you, if that kid would have gotten that bus rolling, it would have been catastrophic.” Chitwood

Watching the incident unfold, the second driver stopped, and when she saw the 15-year-old behind the wheel, she maneuvered her vehicle and pushed the other bus to the side of the road. “Thank God that kid did not get rolling on Township Line Road,” Chitwood said. No injuries were reported.

Shutdown slows flow of data to a trickle A partial government shutdown began to delay the release of data on the world’s largest economy yesterday, leaving policymakers and investors in a fog. From crop yields to unemployment

White House rejects latest GOP offer to end shutdown The White House yesterday rejected a plan floated by Republican leaders in the House of Representatives to reopen some shuttered federal agencies by passing small, individual

The proposal “shows the utter lack of seriousness that we’re seeing from Republicans,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. REUTERS

Obama blames shutdown on ‘ideological crusade’ Plan. Obama also warns the GOP not to use the debt ceiling as leverage to reverse the health care law. President Barack Obama yesterday blamed Republicans for an “ideological crusade” aimed at his health care program and urged lawmakers to vote to keep government operations running and to raise the nation’s borrowing cap without conditions. “They’ve shut down the government over an ideological crusade to deny affordable health insurance to millions of Americans,” he said in remarks in the White House Rose Garden. “Many Representatives have made it clear that

had they been allowed by Speaker [John] Boehner to take a simple up or down vote on keeping government open with no strings attached, enough votes from both parties would have kept the American people’s government open and operating,” he said. “Congress, generally, has to stop governing by crisis,” he added. “I’m not going to allow anybody to drag the good name of the United States of America just to refight a settled election or extract ideological demands.” A debt default that would result if Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling when it is reached in less than three weeks could be devastating, Obama said. The threat of default in 2011 resulted in a painful debt rating downgrade, he noted. REUTERS

Pope vows change to Vatican mentality as reform talks start Church changes. The pontiff says the Church must adopt a worldwide mission. Pope Francis began landmark meetings yesterday to reform the Vatican, promising to do all he could to change the mentality of an institution he said was too focused on its own interests.

He said too many previous popes in the Church’s long history had been “narcissists” who let themselves be flattered by “courtier” aides in the Curia instead of concentrating on the wider mission of the universal Church. “The [papal] court is the leprosy of the papacy,” said Francis, who has brought a new style of openness, consultation and simplicity to the Vatican. The Curia has been riven by scandals over the years and has sometimes seemed to have taken on the trappings of a Renaissance court.

‘Reasonable suspicion’ case goes to high court

The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to consider whether a police officer needs to act on more than just an anonymous tip when stopping a suspected drunken or reckless driver. The court said it would hear the joint appeal filed by a driver and his passenger pulled over in 2008. The officer was acting on a phoned-in tip that the pickup truck the two men were traveling in had run the caller off the road. After pulling the truck over, the officer found four bags of marijuana. The legal question before is whether a police officer needs to observe evidence of reckless driving first-hand to meet the U.S. Constitution’s requirement of “reasonable suspicion.” REUTERS / GETTY IMAGES

Self-esteem. Will a nose job make you feel better about yourself? Getting that nose job could boost your self-esteem and quality of life, according to a new report.

Mid-November

Chinese activist

Russia doubts date for Syria peace talks

Dissident to join US think tank

Russia expressed doubt yesterday that Western nations can persuade Syrian opposition representatives to take part in an international peace conference in time for it to take place in mid-November. The doubts of Damascus’ most important ally followed remarks in which the international envoy for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, said the target date of mid-November was “not 100 percent certain” and cited disunity among rebel forces.

Chen Guangcheng, the Chinese dissident and legal rights activist who accused New York University of forcing him to leave because of alleged pressure from the Chinese government, will be joining The Witherspoon Institute. Until his escape in May 2012, Chen — who is blind — spent nearly seven years held captive. He had enraged officials by exposing illegal forced abortions and attempting to file a lawsuit for the affected families. REUTERS

US defends diplomats expelled from Venezuela Allegations. The OPEC nation’s president claims they promoted destabilization. The U.S. Embassy in Venezuela yesterday defended three diplomats expelled by President Nicolas Maduro, rejecting charges that they were involved in espionage and accusations that Washington is trying to destabilize the OPEC nation. In the latest spat between the ideological foes, Maduro on Monday ordered out three U.S. diplomats including Kelly Keiderling, temporarily in charge of the mission. He alleged they had been meeting with “right wing” opposition leaders and encouraging acts of sabotage against the South American nation’s

The expulsions throw a wrench into cautious efforts this year to restore full diplomatic ties that were frayed for most of the 14-year rule of late socialist leader Hugo Chavez. Nicolas Maduro, Chavez’s successor, named a new acting head of Venezuela’s U.S. diplomatic mission shortly after his April election in what many took as a sign of warming relations. That official may now face expulsion in the tit-for-tat style retaliation that has characterized similar incidents in the past.

Talking point

T. Swift will ruin ‘The Giver’ I can’t believe we haven’t talked about this yet. And by talked, I mean I haven’t written a rambling, personal diatribe in the guise of “celeb gossip” yet. But, OK, I can’t be the only person who is upset about this, right? As most of you probably know by now, Taylor Swift has been cast in a film adaptation of Lois Lowry’s iconic YA novel “The Giver.” So, when I heard that T. Swift — who cannot act (you guys saw “Valentine’s Day,” right? Oh, yeah, uh, me neither) — was cast in this flick, I was SMH dramatically at my laptop. Especially because the rest of the cast is shaping up to be pretty all right. Jeff Bridges is set to be the title carrier of the world’s pain (and joy, don’t forget that there’s joy in the world too — sometimes I do) and badass Meryl Streep is cast as the village matriarch. Katie Holmes is apparently slated to play Jonas’ mother, which I’m also not psyched about — but hey, she kinda lived the real-life version of a woman brainwashed into believing a totally altered way of life was normal, so that’s kind of like method acting, amirite? Swift will play Rosemary, the girl training to be Giver before Jonas. At least I can take consolation in already knowing how she fares (spoiler alert: badly). Plus, we know TaySway is no stranger to feelings ravaging a tender soul.

Hey Don Jon, #thatsracist, maybe When I first saw a HuffPo article titled “Italian American Watchdog Group Accuses ‘Don Jon,’ Joseph Gordon-Levitt Of ‘Racist Stereotypes’” I initially read it as “rapist stereotypes.” And my interest was immediately piqued. (Cue the angry reader letters explaining to me that rape is not a joking matter. I know! Just hear me out.) My interest was piqued because “Don Jon” is a movie about a dude who’s so addicted to porn that he can’t maintain a normal sexual relationship, and I was kind of eager to read about the parallels this group of watchdogs had drawn between zambonis who watch a lot of porn and rapists. (Ha ha ha see what I did there? “Zamboni” is a racially stereotypical name. Cue the angry reader letters explaining that one to me. My last name is Cavallo, btw, just saying.)

THE WORD Alexandra Cavallo takes on the world of gossip. ALEXANDRA CAVALLO @AlexCavall0 alexandra.cavallo@metro.us

I mean, he’s playing a guido. And so what?

Anyway, this coalition — who also called for boycotts of “The Jersey Shore” when that was a Thing — do not like the way that Joseph GordonLevitt portrays the ItalianAmerican, Jersey-based characters in his new movie. But, I mean, come on. One, that’s what they are — characters. And two, come on, people like that exist, and what of it?

I grew up on Long Island, btw, just saying. All that said, I’m more concerned with the terrible Jersey accent Scarlett Johansson is working with in the film’s trailers. Someone should take her to task for THAT, no? (Cue the angry letters from ScarJo fans.) For the record, I do condone the boycotting of “The Jersey Shore.”

Great Wall of WTF?

Justin Bieber has been on such a single-minded campaign to convince us all that he’s no longer a little girl and is now, in fact, a very adult man that recently it seems like the kid might have self-actualized himself into a geriatric. At least, that’s the only reason I can come up with to explain why the hell the little guy needed to be carried the length of the Great Wall of China. (Double spoiler alert: It’s, like, a really long wall.) On Monday, photos surfaced on the Interwebz of the Biebs being carried up one of wonders of the modern world upon the

shoulders of two actual adult men (bodyguards, I guess?). What, they couldn’t find a douchebagsized papoose? I honestly don’t know who I’m more disgusted with — Bieber for being such an egregious tool that he would make his bodyguards carry him up a monument like the boy prince of freaking Siam, those bodyguards for not quitting on the spot and also pushing him into a puddle or something on their way out of there, or myself for taking the time to write about this. But, hey, that’s my job, right? #nodisrespecttobenaffleck

To dub or not to dub, that is the question.

Cowboy inspired the Giant Panda guys to go country. “Jamaicans love country music,” Searl says. “We play all sorts of music and we’re influenced by everything and this is just a reflection of that.”

Alas, the guys, who are from Rochester, N.Y., reverted to their reggae roots with “In These Times,” which dropped about three months after “Country.” The album is full of Giant Panda’s tasty reggae

grooves, soaked in dub. At its core, dub refers to the musical emphasis of bass and drum. It will be present as the band gets ready for an active year of new releases. “We have dub in our name but dub is the approach,” Searl says. “It’s everybody doing something simple to contribute to a greater sound.”

Colin Hanks joins a massive ensemble cast to relive the assassination of JFK and the days that followed in “Parkland,” coming out as the 50th anniversary of the event itself approaches.

about for the next century or the next 40 or 50 years.” The whole point of this film is to look at those moments that have been overlooked, that are not necessarily the first thing that people think about when they think about the Kennedy assassination. The stories of the people that were involved — that I call the sort of supporting characters, that were on the periphery — they were thrust into a scenario where obviously for the rest of their lives they were thinking about this. So for me, I was really interested in trying to capture that elusive sort of moment in time where you just don’t know what’s going on and you’re just trying to get your bearings. And most of the time, you’re failing. In your research, was there anything you learned that surprised you about the assassination? Well, I mean there’s tons of stuff. The idea that the

same doctors were on call when Kennedy and Oswald were brought in, I had no idea. That they even brought them to the same hospital, those kinds of things. Those little moments of history I think are really the most fascinating, and I think are also quite frankly the ones that people gravitate toward. You’re shooting in a very confined space. Yeah, we had 25 people in a small room. And two of them were holding cameras and there was a boom operator and that was it. So it was a different way of making the movie, but again we were just focusing on those real moments. It sounds redundant because you always try to do that in any job, but this one was a different kind of acting than what I was used to.

SOME FIRST-RATE SWEARING Last weekend, Julia LouisDreyfus won her second Emmy as the terminally flustered second-in-command on HBO’s “Veep.” Recently, Scottish actor Peter Capaldi was named as the newest incarnation of the Doctor on “Doctor Who.” The time is ripe for Americans to belatedly discover the new-to-DVD show “The Thick of It,” a British government comedy made by “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci and prominently featuring among its sprawling cast a very scary, very sweary Capaldi. “Veep” was imagined as an American version of “The Thick of It,” which ran four seasons starting in 2005. It also birthed the spinoff movie “In the Loop,” which added Americans like “Veep”’s Anna Chlumsky and a rarely better James Gandolfini. The basic thrust on both shows is the same. Iannucci once described “The Thick of It” as “The

But where each “Yes, Minister” (and later “Yes, Prime Minister”) was like a lovely mini-play, packed with delicious bons mots, “The Thick of It” is like a bull in a china shop, tearing through with some of the coarsest language ever on TV. (Among the

many writers is a “swearing consultant,” Ian Martin, who helps pump up the creative profanity.) All of the characters, who work in a lowly, unimportant department, get their chance to lob insults. But none wield this power like Capaldi’s Malcolm Tucker, the head strategist and master spin doctor. Tucker is a rail-thin, alwaysmoving anger monster who so enjoys belittling

people that he cheerfully asks his secretary (the only person to whom he’s consistently nice) to get him someone to shout at over the phone while he waits for other victims to show up in person. A Tucker-esque character is the main thing “Veep” lacks, perhaps because America is much too nice — or at least better at appearing nice. A show filled with

unpleasant characters standing in offices, yelling at each other, may not be the most uplifting idea. But it’s an accurate reflection of our times. The show captures our ultrastressed times, when careerists are so busy and stressed they have no time for reflection and no time to ponder their actions or even see the (sometimes devastating) impact. The pacing is breakneck, and the plots are sometimes difficult to suss out — sometimes requiring multiple viewings. That’s fine, as that also means catching killer lines that might have been laughed over the first time. It’s more machine than man — a beautiful, insanely quotable cursing machine.

Buying art doesn’t have to be intimidating Decor. It’s time to move beyond hanging posters. Cristina Salmastrelli, director of the Affordable Art Fair, which opens this week in New York, isn’t some stodgy art snob (just check out the hysterical “S— People Say At Art Fairs” video she co-stars in). To help young novice collectors (such as yourself) finally make their first art world purchases, she offers the following tips.

Do some homework

Her picks

Pieces hanging in Salmastrelli’s home: •

“A Standard Moment” by Manolo Campion

“Dream in Colour” by Richard Heeps

“Cheese” by Willy Rojas “It is a photograph of a miniature figure skiing down a block of cheese. It’s in my kitchen and I just love it.”

Before you think about buying art, look through art websites or magazines to see what type of work you’re attracted to, says Salmastrelli. “Do

you like oil paintings or photography? Do you like small pieces that you can bunch together? That’s something that’s really important to know, because art can be overwhelming,” she says. “If you figure out the genre you’re looking for, that narrows it down.” Salmastrelli recommends perusing sites such as Artnet.com, Artsy.net and BlouinArtinfo.com.

Size matters To help narrow down your search, “think about the size you want,” says Salmastrelli. “Are you looking for something to go over the couch in the living room

19

Quoted

“If you’re in a city that does have galleries, definitely walk around them. When you see art in person, it has an amazing effect on you, and it’s very different than if you see it over in a magazine or a computer screen.” Salmastrelli

“Rojo Amor, Rojo Pasion, Rojo Sangre, Rojo Muerte” by Claudia Ferrari is one of the many works available at the Affordable Art Fair (www.affordableartfair.com).

or over the bed in the bedroom?”

Know your budget “This will help you stay focused when you [walk through a fair or gallery] and not get overwhelmed,” says Salmastrelli.

Fall in love

Ask questions

“The most important thing about buying a work of art is that you fall in love with it,” says Salmastrelli. “You don’t want to buy a piece because the name is hot or someone else has it. And when you see it in your home, it’s going to make you smile every time.”

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Salmastrelli suggests starting with: “What kind of materials were used? Where is the artist from, and where is he or she in their career?”

The fifth “Grand Theft Auto” is tough to beat, though it shafts women characters (again.) / ROCKSTAR GAMES

PLAY IN A (GORY) SANDBOX ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ System: 360/PS3 Maker: Rockstar Games

•••••

This is it: the swan song of this gaming generation. PS4 and Xbox One are racing to store shelves in just a month or so, in all of their digital majesty. But for now, who cares? We have “Grand Theft Auto V.” This game has caused a gigantic pop culture splash, and for good reason. It’s really, really (really) good. If you’ve been living under a rock, the “Grand Theft Auto” series is an open-world sandbox in which you can do anything you want. For real — anything. Ride a monster truck off of a cliff into the sea. Kill a thousand prostitutes. Fight aliens and do drugs. The sky isn’t

even the limit as you can also steal an airplane or helicopter. It’s basically a nihilism simulator — a damned good one. “GTA V” takes place in a fictional southern California, complete with beaches, deserts and the glitter and excess of a fake Hollywood. The story has three playable protagonists and revolves around a series of exciting bank heists. All told, there are enough missions to keep you busy for 40 hours or

so, not even considering the recently launched online component. On the downside, the game’s much vaunted satire is a little on the nose and occasionally stupid. Also, there have been a dozen playable characters in the franchise so far and not a single woman. Other than these tiny gripes, “GTA V” is probably the best sandbox game ever made. I can’t wait to see what the next-gen consoles will bring.

MONDAY Saint Laurent 8 p.m.: Say what you want about Hedi Slimane, but you can’t deny that he seems to know what women are in the mood to wear. Critics were on the fence about his last collection, which brought back grunge. Grunge at Saint Laurent? Isn’t that blasphemy? And yet the plaids and biker boots that defined that collection are arguably the most knocked-off things in stores right now. I have the feeling the same will happen with the tiny, rocker girl dresses and jackets he showed for spring, even if it doesn’t look entirely fresh or new. The clothes are cool and sexy, but Isabel Marant already got there first. No matter, this updated take on that French rocker girl je ne sais quoi will be all over Zara and the like come March, if not sooner.

CHANEL GETTY IMAGES

11 a.m.: Despite the fabulous art-world set at Chanel, the real party began with the clothes, which ranged from sophisticated tweed suits to younger, urban dresses, all in saturated colors and painterly graphics. They were the polar opposite of last season’s work, which was darker and filled with Karl Lagerfeld’s rocker edged trademarks. Interestingly, he showed the clothes to a soundtrack of just one song: “Picasso Baby,” which Sean Carter notoriously performed with the blue-chip performance artist (and fashion favorite) Marina Abramovic. The show could have been a statement on the idea of fashion as wearable art, but that would be too neat and tidy for Lagerfeld. Instead, the collection ended up highlighting the way we consume fashion. Seeing his belted, hot pink tweed suit stroll past a giant red sculpture drove home the idea that, in this moment, fashion is all about display. If the right girl wears that suit, it will be photographed, Instagrammed and tweeted across too many feeds to count, just like what happened with the Russian “it” girl Elena Perminova (wearing Chanel tweed, of course) immediately after the show.

Things to know about the Affordable Care Act

Insurance. The new law is now in effect. We’re here to break it down for you.

More than 60 percent of Americans have admitted that they are not sure what is in the new Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, according to Theda Skocpol, professor at Harvard University and author of “Health Care Reform and American Politics.” The exchange marketplace is up and running: Don’t be left in the dark. Read up on the new act here.

1

Who is eligible for Obamacare? People who do not receive insurance from their employers are eligible for Obamacare. People under 26 can stay on their

parents’ insurance.

2

Where can I sign up? You can browse and purchase plans on your state’s exchange marketplace online. People will be able to read about the various benefits and costs of each plan and “comparison shop the same way they would if they were comparing the price of airline tickets,” says Skocpol. Depending on the state, some sites will also allow users to enter their income and immediately sign up for financial assistance.

3

How much will the plans cost? The costs vary from state to state, but many people will receive financial aid that offsets the cost. “The tax credits you can get from the government run pretty high,” says Skocpol. “People making $70$80,000 will get help from

Obamacare.” In the end, most people will pay much less for their insurance than they were before for private insurance plans.

4

What are the different options for an insurance plan? There are four tiers of plans: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Bronze plans are the cheapest and offer basic coverage with higher deductibles and copays. Platinum offers more coverage, but at a higher price. If bronze is the cheapest, why wouldn’t everyone get it? Skocpol says purchasing the bronze plan may not be the cheapest choice in the end. It could end up costing more than the other plans, depending on the frequency of your visits to doctors and hospitals. Some people on the bronze plan may hesitate

5

to see a doctor because of the higher deductibles: Skocpol and her colleagues call this the “bronze trap.” Even so, Skocpol says people who choose the bronze plan will be “protected from the things that drive people into bankruptcy.”

6

Is it possible I’ll pay more for health care? Skocpol says that in a few instances, some families who have very inexpensive catastrophic health insurance that only covers emergencies may have to pay more for insurance. However, their coverage will also be much greater with the new plans.

7

How long do I have to choose a plan? Six months. You can sign up for a plan now and get coverage in the new year, but you have until the end of March to sign up for a plan. Skocpol said that in

the future, the enrollment period will only be two to three months.

or discriminating against people with pre-existing conditions.

8

ANDREA PARK

What if I don’t have insurance and I want to opt out of Obamacare? You can remain uninsured, but you will have to pay a fine of $95 per adult or 1 percent of your family income, whichever is higher.

9

What if I have a preexisting condition? You will still be eligible for health care. The ACA prohibits insurance companies, on and off the exchange, from barring

Is It the Fountain of Youth for Aging Minds?

Pharmacist of the Year Makes Memory Discovery of a Lifetime ‘America’s Pharmacist,’ Dr. Gene Steiner, finds what he and his patients have been looking for – a real memory pill! PHOENIX, ARIZONA — If Pharmacist of the Year, Dr. Gene Steiner, had a nickel for every time someone leaned over the counter and whispered, “Do you have anything that can improve my memory,” he would be a rich man today. It’s a question he’s heard countless times in his 45-year career. He has seen families torn apart by the anguish of memory loss and mental decline, a silent condition that threatens the independent lifestyle that seniors hold so dearly.

Pharmacist of the Year, Dr. Gene Steiner, PharmD, was so impressed with his newfound memory powers that he recommended the patented, prescription-free memory formula to his pharmacy patients with great success. In his years-long search for a drug or nutrient that could slow mental decline, he finally found the answer, a natural, drug-free compound that helps aging brains ‘think and react,’ younger. 259250_8.75_x_5.6875.indd 1

Tired Brains Snap Awake! “It helps tired, forgetful brains to ‘snap awake,” says Dr. Steiner. Before Dr. Steiner recommended it to customers, he tried it first. “Within a few days, I can tell you without reservation that my memory became crystal clear!” “Speaking for pharmacists everywhere, we finally have something that we can recommend that is safe and effective. And you don’t need a prescription either!”

Feeding an Older Brain The formula helps oxygenate listless brain cells to revitalize and protect them from free radicals caused by stress and toxins. It also helps restore depleted neurotransmitter levels, while feeding the aging mind with brain-specific nutrients and protective antioxidants. “I had such marvelous results with this memory pill that I not only started recommending it to my customers, I even shared it with other physicians!”

Pharmacy Best-Seller “It became the best-selling brain health product in my pharmacy and customers were returning to thank me for introducing them to it.” Users like Selwyn Howell* agree. He credits the memory compound with bolstering his confidence. “It helped me speak out more than I used to. I am growing more confident every day. Carey S.* reports, “I feel so much more focused and with the new energy I’m now

ready to tackle the things I’ve been putting off for years!” Elizabeth K.* of Rochester, New York experienced a night-and-day difference in her mind and memory. At the age of 54, her memory was declining at an “alarming rate.” “I was about to consult a neurologist when I read a newspaper article about it.” “It took about a month for the memory benefit to kick in. Six months later, even my husband was impressed with my improved memory. And I am very happy with my renewed mental clarity and focus!” “I highly recommend it,” says Dr. Steiner. “This drug-free compound is the perfect supplement for increasing one’s brain power. If it worked for me, it can work for you!”

Call the toll-free number below to see how you can reserve your free 30-day supply of the same, patented memory formula used by Dr. Steiner.

Is BMI the best predictor of your health? Controversy. New information calls into question the easy calculation as a barometer for wellness. In the early 19th century, doctors commonly prescribed bloodletting to treat ailments and disease, and a bag of live caterpillars tied around the neck was considered an effective treatment for whooping cough. But despite vast scientific advances in medicine since then, many doctors still use the formula for determining healthy body weight that a Belgian mathematician created in the 1830s. This system, now referred to as the body mass index, measures body fat based on your height and weight. It’s recommended by both the Centers for Disease Control and National Institutes of Health — even though according to recent research, BMI is inaccurate for evaluating risk of obesity-related diseases and mortality. “Someone with muscle mass has a lower risk of disease, even if they’re overweight according to their BMI,” says Westbury, N.Y.-based Dr. Andre Giannakopoulos, diplomate on the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Obesity Medicine and an obesity specialist at the Center for Medical Weight Loss. “For example, a construction worker who’s muscular but not necessarily an athlete might be slightly overweight, but that might nevertheless be a healthy weight for him. It’s the amount of fat on the body in terms of percentage that contributes to risk.” Because it doesn’t take into account things like muscle mass, body fat composition, bone density or racial and sex differences, BMI shouldn’t be the main tool to determine whether someone is at risk of more

Accurate ways to measure weight are “expensive, cumbersome and not practical for large studies,” Dr. Ahima says. WAVEBREAK MEDIA Quoted

“A construction worker who’s muscular but not necessarily an athlete might be slightly overweight, but that might nevertheless be a healthy weight for him. It’s the amount of fat on the body in terms of percentage that contributes to risk.” Dr. Giannakopoulos than 50 obesity-related health problems and diseases such as cancer, heart disease, hypertension and sleep apnea, says Dr. Rexford S. Ahima, professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and co-author of an article regarding the difficulty of treating obesity published in the journal Science. “Although BMI isn’t very accurate, it’s simple [and] cheap and can be used for comparative studies in various populations,” Dr. Ahima says. “Accurate measures for body fat, such us underwater weighing, CT scan, MRI and DEXA, are expensive, cumbersome and not practical for large studies.” But as a growing body of research links obesity with expensive-to-treat chronic diseases, insurance companies are becoming

more apt to cover medical treatment for obesity, Dr. Giannakopoulos says. That’s good news for the more than one-third of Americans who are obese. “Treating obesity is much more complex than simply telling people to eat less and exercise more,” says Dr. Giannakopoulos. “People can take in fewer calories than their bodies need, yet still not lose weight. Looking at overall blood work, for example, can uncover medical issues that could be making weight loss more difficult. A combination of regular office visits, behavior modification, counseling, nutrition help and supplements all can help reverse the medical complications caused by obesity.”

Absurdity of celebrity Re: ‘Katy Perry considered suicide after divorce’ (Metro, Oct. 1) I wanted to let you know how much I look forward to reading “The Word” every morning. Your pitch-perfect take in celebrity gossip brightens what would otherwise be a dreary commute to work. I can’t wait to pick up my Metro each day just to read your column. Thank you for doing what you do with excellence far surpassing others in your field. The Katy Perry piece was but one more example that captures the absurdity of celebrity, makes fun of celebrity, but still celebrates celebrity that makes your column so good. GEOFF BUTLER, VIA EMAIL

Don’t mock Perry’s dark thoughts Re: ‘Katy Perry considered suicide after divorce’ (Metro, Oct. 1)

As a high school teacher, I am terribly concerned by the message that the article sends to young people and adults alike. How shocking that in 2013, we still have people like Ms. Robinson who are interested in mocking mental illness and suicidal thoughts. Whether or not Katy Perry was actually suicidal or did indeed suffer from mental illness in the form of depression, this article’s judgment sends the wrong message. Responding to someone’s mental health concern with, “like, she must have realized she would pull through this,” completely disregards the crippling effect of mental illness. While this article may not be keeping Katy Perry up at night, it certainly says to us regular folks that thoughts of suicide are a laughing matter that are under the control of the individual.

Shallow Hal

Flyers ink Hal Gill The Flyers announced that 38-year-old defenseman Hal Gill signed a one-year contract with the team yesterday. The 6-foot-7, 240-pound Gill was on a professional tryout in training camp. He appeared in three preseason games for the Flyers, recording two assists.

No lockout, no problem with optimistic Flyers NHL. The Orange and Black are full of optimism as they open the 2013-14 season against Toronto.

over the long haul, there are many who think the Flyers still won’t have what it takes to change last year’s bottom line. While they should be bolstered up front by the addition of Vinny Lecavalier and Mark Streit on the blue line, there are still questions about the defense and forwards. And that doesn’t even include the nightly game of musical goalies, with late-season sensation Steve Mason and free agent Ray Emery. But, aside from a brutal 1-5-1 preseason, coach Peter Laviolette likes the product he’ll be putting out. “We can’t use the lockout as an excuse for last year,� said Laviolette. “We made our bed and we laid in it. Other teams had the same shortened season and same amount of games, and they experienced success. But that’s last year and in the past.� The key is chemistry. “What teams have on paper or what they pick up or lose in the summer, I don’t think matters as much as what they build together as a group,� said Laviolette.

To a man, they won’t use it as an excuse. Everybody was in the same 48-game boat, the players are quick to point out. They had the same chance of doing something special as the eventual Cup finalists, the Blackhawks and Bruins. Yet, now that the lockout-shortened season is only a bitter memory, now that things are back to normal in the NHL, the Flyers are confident they can be a team to be reckoned with. “Last year, during the lockout, everyone did what they felt was best for them,� said defenseman Kimmo Timonen. “So, it was kind of a weird feeling when we finally started. There wasn’t much practice time. Now, we’ve had a good training camp and preseason. Everybody’s healthy and ready to go.� Being at full strength and conditioned to last

Five guys who need to thrive NFL. The Flyers need big contributions all over the ice, starting with the No. 1 line. Here are five players who must be steady if the Flyers hope to go anywhere:

1

Scottie Hartnell It seems strange to label a guy who plays on the No. 1 line and led the 2012 Flyers in goal-scoring as needing to up his game, but Hartnell’s struggles last year were one of many reasons the Flyers missed the playoffs. He was hampered by injuries, and managed just eight goals. Was that a fluke or is the

31-year-old Hartnell beginning to decline?

3

Sean Couturier The Flyers keep turning down all trades involving a player who once scored a playoff hat trick, yet has managed just 17 goals (four last year) in two seasons. While his checking and defensive mindset be-

lie his age (20), the Flyers wouldn’t have drafted him No. 8 in 2012 if they didn’t think he could be more like the 96-point scorer he was in juniors.

Max Talbot The premier checking center, Talbot was coming off a career-best 19-goal season before a broken leg cut short his 2012-13 campaign after 36 games. Before that, he had slumped to five goals and even his defensive game wasn’t as sharp. Still only 29 years old, he’s a good candidate to bounce back.

it’s surprising to many he’s still here. But the $4 million salary cap hit was too steep for others to risk. Meszaros says he’s healthy and ready to prove he can be the player who led the NHL in plus-minus much of the 2011 season.

2

Schenn brothers We’ll group them together, though their styles are different. Luke took a while to get going in his new digs last year, before emerging as a steadying force on the defense. Little brother Brayden, expected to be a force up front, managed just eight goals. The Flyers will need more from him if they seriously expect to contend.

Games to watch Here are some key games to circle on the calendar in the Flyers’ 2013-14 season. •

Today vs. Maple Leafs, 7:30 p.m.: There’s no better place to set the tone than in the season opener. Get loud! Oct. 12 at Red Wings: First chance for Flyers to show Dan Cleary how much they care after he played them to land a new contract. Oct. 17 vs. Penguins: Will the hate generated by this cross-state rivalry be as intense now that Lavy and Dan Bylsma are teaming to coach Team USA in Sochi? Oct. 24 vs. Rangers: No team gives Flyers more trouble than these guys. Henrik Lundqvist and Co. have gone 10-2-1, surrendering just 27 goals since March 2011. Nov. 27 at Lightning: After 14 seasons as the heart and soul of

the franchise, Vinny Lecavalier returns as the enemy. Since he had no choice, Lightning fans will still love him. •

Jan. 8 vs. Canadiens: Danny Briere, a guy who hated to leave, is back. After overachieving in the regular season, then flaming out in the playoffs, hockey-crazed Montreal is ready. Jan. 25 vs. Bruins: First meeting between two fierce rivals, who have represented the East in the Cup Final in three of last four seasons. Flyers won last two meetings.

March 24 vs. Kings: Incredibly, it’s the first trip back to Philly for Mike Richards and Jeff Carter after winning the 2012 Stanley Cup.

April 12 at Penguins: How much will be on the line in the new Metropolitan Division and the East in the season’s next-to-last game?

Leafs, Flyers hoping to get off on right foot NHL. Claude Giroux and Co. open the regular season today against Toronto at Wells Fargo Center. Think the Flyers had a long, painful offseason? Sure, but their frustration over not making the playoffs might pale in comparison to a team that actually did. When they finally dropped the puck Tuesday night in Montreal, no one was more thrilled to start the new season than the Toronto Maple Leafs. After all, when you squander a 4-1 lead in the last 11 minutes of Game 7 in Boston — two goals in the final 1 minute, 22 seconds with

the Bruins’ net open — you’ll never forget it. The Maple Leafs eventually lost that one in overtime and lost the series. The Leafs have tried

their best to get past the debacle, but when old friends James van Riemsdyk, Joffrey Lupul and Co. take on the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center tonight, they’ll already be undermanned. Free-agent acquisition David Clarkson will miss the first 10 games of the season for leaving the bench during a recent altercation. But don’t expect any sympathy from the Flyers. The Orange and Black had won three straight season openers before dropping last year’s lockoutshortened season debut to Sidney Crosby and the Penguins, 3-1.

but mathematically eliminated from the postseason party — enabled Peter Laviolette’s club to finish with a winning record at 23-22-3. Now that they’re back to a full 82 games, rather than the 48-game slate, it’s less critical to get off to a good start. Just don’t tell them that coming off a miserable 1-5-1 preseason — in which they scored just 15 goals — doesn’t matter. “We have to learn from what happened last year and get off to a quick start,” said defenseman Kimmo Timonen. “We need to be able to win games in a row, which we didn’t do.
