we never leave a man behind By Nate Rawlings

The Military Press June 1, 2013 Publisher Richard T. Matz Customer Service Manager Carol Williams

In the U.S. Armed Forces, we don’t leave anyone behind. It’s one of the basic pillars of what the Army calls the Warrior Ethos: “I will never leave a fallen comrade.” During the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, several troops were captured and held prisoner. Some, like Jessica Lynch, were rescued quickly; Bowe Bergdahl has been held for three years. On April 9, 2004, an Army fuel convoy came under fire near Baghdad Airport, and after emerging from the chaos, the unit was missing nine people – two soldiers and seven civilian drivers. One of the soldiers was found dead, while Specialist Matt Maupin had been captured. A week later, Maupin appeared on a videotape that was broadcast by Al-Jazeera. ETHOS, continued on page 4 >>

from the country’s collective memory, replaced by the demands of daily life and other news from the war zone. Several more times information on Maupin came our way. Several more times, we suited up and rode into the inferno of an Iraqi summer and spent the day combing, digging, hoping we would find him. Like the first mission, when hope was high, we found nothing. Soon the trail went cold and Maupin disappeared from my thoughts, replaced by other ongoing missions in an increasingly chaotic war. We returned home six months after searching for Maupin, and a year later I was on my way back to Baghdad. When I arrived in March 2008, I wondered if we would ever find Maupin. On March 20, a unit finally found Maupin’s remains north of where we had previously searched. They had relied on a tip from a local resident and named the recovery mission Operation Trojan Honor, after the mascot from Maupin’s high school. We were far removed from our own efforts to find him, but the news was still a great comfort. Maupin’s family back in Ohio finally knew what happened to their son, and he was laid to rest in their hometown cemetery, not a farm outside of Baghdad. To this day, more than 73,000 troops remain missing from World War II alone. Unlike Maupin, most of them will never be found. But the search, though it may be in vain, will never end. The oath to never leave a fallen comrade is a promise made to each other, that even if we die, our brothers in arms will do everything they can to bring us home. It’s a mission that hasn’t ended, and as long as wars continue, it never will.

Made in America... Sold to Militaries Everywhere



We’ve known for a while that drones are becoming ubiquitous, sadly, two years before the FAA will have any rules. Already, the military is using drones to terrorize Yemeni villagers and police officers to spy. But with the recent Silicon Valley interest and boom in drones comes worrying questions. The U.S. drone program has always been a bit shady. We know, for instance that the U.S. gained access to Pakistani airspace by covertly assassinating the Pakistan government’s enemies of state. Luckily for the U.S. government, Americans have a stunning ability to not care about anyone who does not share their nationality and/ or race, and therefore the government’s drone actions have gone uncontested. Now corporations are getting into the mix, with large funding from Silicon Valley. As I’ve noted before, drones certainly have legitimate uses. However, there is the potential that weaponized drones will be shipped overseas. NBC reports that the Pentagon has approved 66 nations as eligible to purchase U.S. drones. More worrying is the possibility that private corporations will secretly (or openly) sell their wares to foreign governments to be used for repression, or even attacks against the U.S. (hardly an unprecedented move). The industrial half of the military-industrial complex are eager to start exporting weapons. Michael Buscher, CEO of Vanguard Defense Industries said, “I don’t see the domestic market as being such a boom, our bread and butter is still going to be overseas foreign

military sales.” I urge you to read that twice. Some are raising concerns about exporting UAV technology. Daryl Kimball, executive director the Arms Control Association warned, “The proliferation of this technology will mark a major shift in the way wars are waged. We’re talking about very sophisticated war machines here. We need to be very careful about who gets this technology. It could come back to hurt us.” Dianne Feinstein has also raised concerns, telling the Wall Street Journal that “there are some military technologies that I believe should not be shared with other countries, regardless of how close our partnership.” We must certainly be careful about who gains control of the drones. In February General Atomicssold a predator drone to the United Arab Emirates. This marks the first time U.S. drones have been sold to a non-NATO country. More such sales are likely to come, especially in the developing world. It would be nice if the drones were used only to water crops, but I’m unaware of any predator drone farmer helper kits. Arms can easily change hands and allies can become enemies. Remember the Mujahideen in Afghanistan?

Over 30 Years experience

Is American democracy in trouble? By E.J. Dionne, Jr. Washington Post Columnist on TheModerateVoice.com WASHINGTON — We know American politics are dysfunctional. But after a week of scandal obsession during which the nation’s capital and the media virtually ignored the problems most voters care about — jobs, incomes, growth, opportunity, education — it’s worth asking if there is something especially flawed about our democracy. Our circumstances certainly have their own particular disabilities: a radicalization of conservative politics, over-the-top mistrust of President Obama on the right, high-tech gerrymandering in the House, and a Senate snarled by non-constitutional supermajority requirements. Still, while it may not be much of a comfort, the democratic distemper is not a peculiarly American phenomenon. Across most of the democratic world, there is an impatience bordering on exhaustion with electoral systems and political classes. Citizen dissatisfaction is hardly surprising in the wake of a deeply damaging economic downturn. That doesn’t make the challenge any less daunting. We should consider whether democracy itself is in danger of being discredited. Politicians might usefully disentangle themselves from their day-to-day power struggles long enough to take seriously their responsibility to a noble idea and the systems that undergird it. It’s not hard to discover that this conundrum is global and not just our own. “Has democracy had its day?” is the headline on Columbia University historian Mark Mazower’s cover story in the May issue of Prospect, a British magazine. The subhead: “Electoral politics has had a bad decade.” Earlier this month, the Transatlantic Academy, a global partnership of think tanks led by the German Marshall Fund of the United States, issued “The Democratic Disconnect,” a sober report by a group of distinguished academics. “Democracy is in trouble,” the report begins. “The collective engagement of a concerned citizenry for the public good — the bedrock of a healthy democracy — is eroding. Dem-

ocratic governments often seem crippled in their capacity to deliver what their people want and need. They are neither as responsive nor as accountable as they need to be in an era of hard choices and rising nondemocratic powers. There is widespread concern about apparent declining rates of voter participation and about the alienation or disaffection of citizens from the political process.” In Europe, the authors noted, “there is fear that the distance between ordinary citizens and the politicians and bureaucrats in Brussels compromises democratic legitimacy.” In the United States, “lamentations about gridlock and polarization are the order of the day.” Even our peaceable neighbor Canada is not immune. “Canadians,” they write, “worry about the tendency of their political system to place largely unaccountable power in the hands of the prime minister.” The report does include some useful suggestions for reviving the democratic spirit and improving democratic practice. But it is not alarmist to be uneasy about democracy’s prospects. Ernst Hillebrand, the head of international policy analysis for the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the German Social Democratic Party’s think tank, describes a chilling finding in a 2009 survey by the German polling firm Forsa: “that 0 percent — yes, zero percent — of workers in Germany believe they can have a significant impact on how policy in Germany is shaped via the ballot box.” And bear in mind that a poll released last week by the Pew Global Attitudes Project found that Germans are far more satisfied with their country’s situation than are their European neighbors. In a conversation last week during a visit to Washington, Hillebrand pointed to two streams of discontent the world’s democracies face. One is material. The other might be called spiritual. On the one side, large numbers of lower-middle-class and workingclass voters have seen their economic standing deteriorate over two or three DEMOCRACY, cont’d. on Page 18

Managing transitions with ease By Miranda Adcock Take a look around your neighborhood this time of year and you will notice that things are changing. You may see that the trees are full of life, the bees have multiplied, the scent of sun block is in the air, and the sound of moving trucks is in our ears. Well, at least in our neighborhoods. Summer is the time for transitions, and military families are no exception. While transitions provide families a fresh opportunity for growth, it can also be a time that brings a great deal of stress. The traditional life transitions can be tougher for military families when it seems like the lives of everyone around them are changing too. Relocations for “PCS Season,” long vacations, and new schools are just a few transitions that military families may face. To help families go from surviving to thriving, the following tips can lend a helping hand:

1. Plan ahead

Few things spell trouble like a failure to plan. Even a short trip to your local swimming hole can turn sour if someone forgot swim shorts. If a move is in your future, creating a plan can reduce the anxiety of the unknown. From what hotel to stay in, to what neighborhood has the best schools in your price range, these details can be

planned ahead to reduce stress. Transitions like attending a new school can be set up for success by taking a short tour to know where classes are or ensuring Individualized Education Plans are current. Kids can get involved in the planning by going online and look-


Strengthening the Home Base

ing at pictures of the new place, or talking to other kids about moving at Military Youth on the Move (for more information see their “For Those in the Know” section).

2. Keep your family’s diet and sleep routine consistent and healthy

Avoid letting the freedoms of summer influence food choices and sleep habits. Kids, in particular, can be sensitive to diet and sleep changes. Sugar spikes, tired tantrums, and bellyaches can ruin even the best laid plans. Everyone can benefit from planning meals ahead of time, limiting unhealthy foods, and keeping a routine. For example, on long drives, pit stops


in the afternoon can keep kids from late napping and encourage more healthy sleep that night.

3. Talk about expectations, and expect the best

Kids thrive when they know what is expected of them. Hold a family meeting to discuss and even negotiate expectations (for more on family meetings click here). Change can be hard for kids, both physically and mentally. Knowing what comes next can ease their fear and anxiety of the unknown. Think for a minute that the changes your child is experiencing are similar to getting a new job: If you have an idea of what you’ll be doing at the new job, you’re more likely to be better at it. Even more, if you have a boss who’s excited, supportive and expects you to excel in your new obligations, you’ll be employee of the month in no time. And if your boss considers your input, you will be the happiest and most productive person in the whole company! Kids need the same thing; a list of expectations, a way to give feedback, and lots of pats on the back can make this a positive transition for the entire family.

4. Give everyone permission to learn

Transitions are an opportunity to

grow. Kids can learn to master new tasks during transition, but this takes some planning. Parents can provide safe learning opportunities by getting creative. For example, take your soon-to-be-kindergartner to new playgrounds to practice making new friends. If you have a child transitioning to middle school, have fun trying to set a family record for unlocking combination locks. By the time they are at their new school with 4 minutes to change classes, they’ll be in and out in a breeze. Have a new driver in the family? Take your teen driving in an empty parking lot with rubber cones for guides. Their confidence will grow faster without the guilty feelings of paying for new paint.

5. Reassure. Reassure. Reassure

Did I mention it’s helpful to reassure your child? Kids need to know they did a good job. They need to know that whatever transitions lie ahead, the love and support of their family is unchanging. Reassurance promotes healthy self-talk, confidence, and even positive social skills. Even the teenager who seems to fight every positive affirmation needs a reassurance. They’ll TRANSITIONS, cont’d. on Page 24

Baby Boomers May Avoid Knee Surgery With Modern Arthritis Treatments Doctors say these two factors are the keys to knee arthritis treatment success and relieving pain without surgery

The key to avoiding knee replacement surgery is doing the correct treatments San Diego County - Everyone has said it at one time or another.

I believe we are ferers the right treatment is viscosuphaving so much success at Osteo Relief plementation. In this treatment, a preparation of Hyaluronic acid (such Institute because of two factors: One is we are using advanced medical tech- as Hyalgan) is injected directly into the nology and treatments a lot of clinics knee joint. do not use.

sufferers. This is similar to running your car low or without oil. Obviously, the sooner you put oil back in the car - the less damage will be done. That’s why some doctors feel early viscosupplementation gets the best results and is so important for avoiding surgery. And the Doctors believe one of the most important factors for the success of viscosupplementation is making sure you are getting it into the joint space. That’s why the doctors at Osteo Relief Institute use advanced imaging technology called a “C-Arm.” A C-Arm allows the doctor to see into the joint and actually watch the injection go where it is supposed to. Research shows that performing injections without digital imaging can result in missing the joint space as much as 30% of the time. If you had viscosupplementation treatments without advanced imagining and did not get good results - this may be why.

Can This Be Avoided? Total knee replacement is serious surgery requiring months of rehabilitation. Some doctors think modern treatments done early enough can keep baby boomers from going under the knife.

“If you have knee arthritis pain, viscosupplementation might be the answer you are looking for. The keys are to not wait, get a good evaluation from an expert and make sure advanced digital imaging (CArm) is used to make sure you have the best chance for success.” was the advice of the doctors at the Osteo Relief Institute.

Free Knee Pain Screenings Offered To Help Determine If San Diego Area Residents Qualify For Popular Treatment

San Diego area knee pain sufferers have limited time to claim knee pain screening to see if all-natural knee arthritis treatment might work for them If you qualify for this treatment, it might be one of the happiest days of your life. That’s because, for the past year and a half, hundreds of knee pain sufferers have flocked to Osteo Relief Institute located in San Diego, California. That’s when their specially trained doctors added viscosupplementation treatments to their already successful and comprehensive knee pain relief program. Viscosupplementation is unique because - even though it is manufactured by a pharmaceutical company, it is NOT considered a drug because it is a natural substance with an incredible story. Why So Many Want It You see, when you suffer with arthritis - the lubricating fluid (synovial fluid) in your knee joint dries up. This means instead of gliding smoothly - your bones start to rub and grind against each other. This causes a little pain in the beginning - but over time the pain steadily gets worse until it is excruciating. Like “Joint Oil” Viscosupplementation works so well because it is like “joint oil.” It is a natural substance that contains one of the natural building blocks of the synovial fluid that lubricates your knee. Scientists and researchers discovered this natural building block to synovial fluid in the rooster’s comb -

that big red thing on top of the rooster’s head. It is extracted from the rooster’s comb, purified and concentrated. When it is injected directly into your knee joint, it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. Viscosupplementation allows your joints to glide more smoothly eliminating a lot of the rubbing, grinding and pain. Can Supplements Do The Same Thing? No. Glucosamine and chondroitin and other supplements are much different. You can only get this from a doctor and it often helps knee pain sufferers who got limited or no success from glucosamine and chondroitin. Beware of unsubstantiated claims made by supplements that claim to do what this advanced medical procedure does. Why You Should Try This Even If You’ve Already Had Similar Treatments Without results... “We have been able to help so many knee pain sufferers - even many who have already tried other injections like Synvisc, Supartz, Orthovisc and even Hyalgan. We use special and very advanced low-dose videofluoroscopy imaging called “Hologic Digital Imaging” so we can see right into the joint. This allows us to put the Hyaglan exactly where it needs to be. Studies show doctors doing joint injections without fluoroscopy miss the joint up

to 30% of the time.” said the head of Arthritis Treatment at Osteo Relief Institute. Osteo Relief Institute is a state of the art medical facility offering only the best technology. And that’s not all - Osteo Relief Institute has a complete knee relief program called “P.A.C.E.” to make sure you get the most pain relief and the best possible results from treatment. “Every case is individual. Some patients get quite a bit of relief right away - others take a little more time. But most have been extremely happy and the results usually last for at least 6 months. Patients who were suffering for years with bad knee pain are getting their lives back... going for walks again and exercising. It’s amazing to see. They tell all their friends - that’s why we are swarmed. I can’t tell you how many patients have cancelled their total knee replacement surgeries.” added one doctor. How To Get It If you have knee pain, the doctors would like to invite you for a risk free screening to see if you are a candidate for viscosupplementation treatments and the P.A.C.E program. All you have to do is call 619-3774456 right now and when the scheduling specialist answers the phone tell her you would like your risk free “Knee Pain Screening.” The specialists at Osteo Relief Institute can only accept a

Advanced Medical Technology Can Make All The Difference: This advanced digital imaging called a C-arm allows doctors to see directly into the knee joint so treatments are precise and the Hyalgan actually goes where it is supposed to. Studies show that injections done without digital imaging can miss the joint up to 30% of the time. This is one reason Hyalgan or other Viscosupplementation may not have worked for you. Osteo Relief Institute uses this C-arm for every Hyalgan treatment.

limited amount of new patients each month for this screening - so if you are interested please call now. Your risk free screening will only take about 25-30 minutes... you will get all your questions answered and leave knowing if you have possibly found the solution to your knee pain. And here’s something really important - Viscosupplementation treatments and the P.A.C.E program are covered by most insurance and Medicare. To schedule your screening today call 619-377-4456.

If You Can Answer Yes - You Are Eligible For A Knee Arthritis Screening With The Experts At Osteo Relief Institute Do you have pain and osteoarthritis (arthritis) of the knee? Have you tried other treatments such as NSAIDS and other antiinflammatory medications without success? Have you already tried viscosupplementation (Hyalgan, Suparz, Synvisc) without satisfactory results?

Everyone Wants Proof: In the artist simulated drawings above, picture #1 is a normal, pain-free knee. There is no arthritis and the knee can move and bend freely without pain.

Pain - the red is a knee joint with painful osteoarthritis. Arthritis causes the joint space to decrease, grinding, stiffness, decreased motion, bone spurs, swelling and a lot of pain.

For advertising information, call (858) 537-2280

Successful Treatment - Viscosupplementation (blue) being precisely injected directly into the knee joint using Hologic digital imaging. Advanced imaging allows treatments to be as precise as possible. This cushioning can lubricate the joint and decrease pain.

Failed Treatment - the injection (and cushioning and lubricating material) misses the joint space. Research shows this occurs up to 30% of the time without the use of Hologic digital imaging to guide the injection. This is why other treatments may not have worked for you.

If you answered yes to any of these questions - give Osteo Relief Institute a call and schedule your risk free knee pain screening 619-377-4456

From the bush to the brush By Brando Fontaine When Brian Torch was serving in the U.S. Army in Viet Nam in the Long Binh Providence, he had no idea that the experience would put him on the path to becoming the world-class artist he is today. Brian returned from Viet Nam with a case of PTSD that went undiagnosed at the time and developed into serious mood swings leading to anger, depression and despair. The root cause was something shared by many of the veterans returning from their deployments in that era. Trained to kill and sent to Viet Nan for a 10- to 13-month tour, if you made it through that unscathed you were sent home. For most of these soldiers, they were put on a plane and flown to Oakland and de-processed over 24 hours. From there, they were on their own to find a way back to their hometowns. While happy to be home, being back in America was a stark contrast to poverty in Viet Nam. From the naked kids playing in the streets from lack of clothing to the atrocities that happened while on patrol in the hot sweaty jungle, everything was different. The treatment these Vets received after returning home only served to create a wider emotional divide; happy to be home and having a cold beer with old friends, the next thing you

For some unknown reason he felt compelled to begin sketching drawings and six months later to start painting.

TRICARE Prime enrollees in the West Region have experienced longer than usual wait times for authorizations for specialty care since the start of health care delivery on April 1, 2013 under a new contract in the TRICARE West Region with UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans. While UnitedHealthcare is working to make improvements, TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) acted to reduce the impact on Prime enrollee access to specialty health care through a temporary authorization waiver. The waiver has now been extended and will include referrals made through June 18, 2013. Visit www.tricare.mil/westtransition or www.uhcmilitarywest.com for more information.

preme Court in 1977 had ruled that the use of the death penalty in cases of rape alone was unconstitutional, saying the punishment is disproportionate to the crime. There were also changes to rules of evidence, though the senior defense official said they were primarily technical or clarifying amendments. The secretary of defense is required by executive order to review the Manual for Courts-Martial each year and recommend changes to the president, according to a senior administration official. The executive order Obama signed Thursday is “a routine update,” she said. One of the other changes made by the executive order is separating the article pertaining to sexual assault into three sections: rape and sexual assault, rape and sexual assault of a child, and other sexual misconduct.

WASHINGTON — President Obama on Wednesday signed off on several changes to the Manual for Courts-Martial, including a change to the maximum penalty for rape — lowering it from the death penalty to life in prison. Though the change seems at odds with the administration’s announced crackdown on sexual assault in the military, a senior defense official said it was made to bring the military into line with federal statutes.

The ships will be 509 feet long, have a beam length of 59 feet and with operating at speeds in excess of 30 knots.

ly. A fast solution for what to do with that empty VA loan house is often in order.   Renting out your home financed with a VA loan is an option. If done by the book, the rental income can be used to offset the existing VA mortgage payment.  As a rule, VA loans are not used to purchase income property due to the owner-occupancy rule.  But, once you’ve lived in the home, it is okay to vacate and rent out the home.  PCS is a fine reason to exercise this right.  Additionally, it’s possible to have two VA loans at once as long as the homeowner has enough entitlement, qualifies with income and credit and HOUSING

Starks bring immediate credibility

Dwight Freeney

As for the 31-yearold Starks, his transition from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Chargers should be a lot smoother for two reasons – his familiarity playing under offensive coordinator Ken Wisenhunt and the quick release of Philip Rivers. His days of having to sustain a block for a longer time while his quarterMax back extends plays Starks scrambling around the pocket are over with. Let’s be real – Rivers’ elusiveness as a quarterback will never be compared to Stark’s former quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger. “There was a great opportunity in San Diego to come in and compete for a starting job,” Starks told the Chargers.com managing editor Ricky Henne. “When you look at the tools they (Chargers) have on offense, I have experience with Philip Rivers from the Senior Bowl. I blocked for him when we were coming out of college. And I have friendships on the team prior to that. So at least I’m not going into a situation not knowing anybody. I just felt really comfortable with the coaching staff and what their plan was. “This has probably been the best offseason I’ve had in three years. This is the healthiest I’ve felt and the strongest I’ve felt in a very long time. I wasn’t injured. I wasn’t rehabbing this offseason so I was able to focus on training instead of nursing an injury. That’s the biggest thing. Being healthy allows you to train a lot harder and longer.”

By Art Garcia Jr. Oh what a difference a week makes. Just two weeks ago the Chargers appeared to be in desperation mode as last years’ firstround draft pick and starting outside linebacker Melvin Ingram tore the ACL in his left knee and appears out for the season. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the team still had a major void to fill along the offensive line at the left tackle position. However, in one short week GM Tom Telesco was able to sign two veteran free agents who, by their names alone, bring immediate credibility to the Chargers team itself and to their respective positions. Enter Dwight Freeney and Max Starks. Freeney, 33, cut his teeth as one of the most dominant defensive ends in the league while playing for the Indianapolis Colts the past 11 years. During that span, Freeney tallied 107 ½ sacks and was voted to the Pro Bowl seven times in what very well could be a Hall-of-Fame career. The big question is how effective he will be switching from a 4-3 defensive end with one hand on the ground to a 3-4 outside linebacker in John Pagano’s defensive scheme? According to Freeney that will not be a problem because, as he explained recently in Peter King’s ‘Monday Morning Quarterback,’ the Chargers plan on using him as a sort of hybrid where they will design schemes to best suit his pass rushing skills. “They’ll run both. They’re willing to feature me and free me up to make plays. And they’re going to put me in good matchups in the 3-4,” Freeney The Endzone: said. Besides their physical presence on “It’s a funny question for us coaches,” Pagano told the UT’s Michael the team, the best attributes Feeney Gehlken. “The difference between and Starks bring to the locker room is the 3-4 and the 4-3, it’s so minimal. the fact that they come from winning He’s such a great player.

Long distance mediation for military By Rich Gordon, B.A., M.A., JD There are times in your life when you have to deal with emotional situations and make critical decisions. Handling divorce problems is one such situation that has the full potential to test your nerves. In instances like these, communication usually breaks down. If your spouse is deployed, or if it is difficult for you to meet face to face, Long Distance Mediation may be an option.

Make the Best Choice

Mediation gives you a chance to control your own divorce. This is an extremely helpful service as it enables you to recover from a disturbing divorce. Moreover, you’ll be able to forget about the past and move ahead in your life. Mediation enables you and your partner to resolve divorce issues in a less conflicting manner. These include the custody and visitation rights of each party. You will also need to determine if any child support needs to be paid by one parent to the other. As children get older, they will want to participate in extracurricular activities. Discussions will be needed to address the costs for them.

ternet, speakerphones, microphone, video conferencing tools, and various other technology platforms help bring

individuals together from any part of the world. Long distance mediation ensures

that you make practical decisions and reach feasible agreements no matter how far apart both parties are. This kind of mediation offers a win-win proposition to all participants and makes the process more comfortable and stress-free. If you are currently dealing with divorce problems, you may experience mixed emotions and feelings, such as stress, frustration, anger, despair, or annoyance. By choosing long distance mediation, both partners can stay involved in the process of mediation regardless of their distant locations. This ensures that you and your spouse enjoy the same benefits and outcomes. A visit to our web site, www.afarway.com, will get you started on what you need to know about divorce mediation.

One winner per age group: 2-3, 4-5, 6-8

Talk with a Mediator

The first step is to talk with a mediator. Mediators are well-trained, skilled, and neutral individuals. They work with you and help you address problems, explore options, determine possibilities, and make the right choices. A mediator can develop agreements on various issues, including property and assets distribution, child custody, child support, and spousal support. Couples involved in mediation are likely to avail a more satisfying divorce process and better results. With military couples, it is important to speak with someone who is well versed in the unique particulars involved with military pay, support and benefits. For instance BAH; Post 9-11 College benefits; health insurance; division of retirement benefits; effect of disability income on child or spousal support; or bonus payments after divorce.

Long Distance Mediation

The mediation procedure usually produces the best results when you as well as your partner meet face-to-face. Nevertheless, if any of you is at a remote location or doesn’t want to meet personally, then long distance mediation will help you resolve the problem. The advanced communication technology plays an important role and helps you attain productive results. The In-

Cont’d. from Page 6 famous phrase of course was in his acceptance speech for the Presidency in 1964, when, having wrested control from the moderate wing of the party, he said, “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is

no virtue!” It was quite possibly the most famous, and mocked phrase ever uttered by a losing Presidential nominee. He called welfare “socialism,” and opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. His slogan was “in your heart you know he’s right,” to which the LBJ camp responded, “in your gut you know he’s nuts.” That inspired the famed ten second “mushroom cloud”


ad which, prior to Willie Horton, may have been the single most devastating ad for a Presidential candidate in the age of modern television. The result was the most infamous electoral disaster for a modern party in history. Goldwater lost to Johnson by 22%, clearly costing his party big in Congress. He took just four southern states and managed to eke out a mere 5,000 vote victory in his home

state where, despite a very close call in 1980, he was never rejected by the voters. So what happened? Well, it’s difficult to attribute the later Goldwater to maturity. After all, in 1964, he was already 55 years old. For starters, it’s possible that he realized that he had been a little to explicit in his desire to end government.


Cont’d. from Page 7 decades. There has been a substantial transfer of wealth and income from labor — which is how most people pay their way — to capital. Productivity gains no longer lead to wage gains. This builds justified frustration. At the same time, he says, many citizens, especially the young, have enhanced expectations for “participation, self-realization and control over their lives.” They do not see current electoral arrangements in the democracies giving them much chance to achieve any of these goals. Since World War II, bouts of economic growth have allowed the democracies to buy their way out of trouble. One can hope this will happen again — and soon. In the meantime, politicians might contemplate their obligations to stewardship of the democratic ideal. They could begin by pondering what an unemployed 28-year-old makes of a ruling elite that expends so much energy feuding over how bureaucrats rewrote a set of talking points. INSURANCE

The Cow Says

A mother was reading a book about animals to her 3-year-old daughter. The mother said, “What does the cow say?” The child answered, “Moo!” The mother then said, “Great! What does the cat say?” The child replied, “Meow.” The mother exclaimed, “Oh, you’re so smart! What does the frog say?” The wide-eyed little 3-year-old looked up at her mother and in her deepest voice replied, “Bud.”

A, B, C, D, E, F, G!” “Very good,” said her mother. “Is it because I’m blonde, Mommy?” “Yes, pumpkin, it’s because you’re blonde.” The next day the girl came skipping home from school. “Mommy, Mommy,” she yelled, “we were in gym class today, and when we showered, all the other girls had flat chests, but I have these!” And she lifted her tank top to reveal a pair of 36Cs. “Very good,” said her embarrassed mother. “Is it because I’m blonde, mommy?” “No, it’s because you’re 25.”

X-box One to release in ’13 After four years of development, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One entertainment console and touted it as an all-in-one solution for playing games, watching TV and doing everything in between. Microsoft wants the Xbox One to be central to your living room, so it packed the new Xbox with such features as the ability to change TV channels through voice commands. Based on limited time with the device, the Xbox One feels like an improvement over its predecessor. But it fails to include features some fans


Cont’d. from Page 17 been upgraded, so the 49ers should be better in 2013. Richard Sherman anchors Seattle’s defense. The Seahawks surrendered a mere 15.3 points per game in 2012, while the 49ers only allowed 17.1. The Seahawks lost Chris Clemons to an ACL tear, but they should be fine with Avril and Bennett. On offense, the two teams are also very similar. Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson are two young, dynam-

have demanded, including the ability to play games bought for the existing Xbox 360 system. Kinect: The new version of the Xbox’s camera-based Kinect system comes with better motion and voice detection, including the ability to recognize faces, tell if you’re smiling or talking and gauge your heart rate. It appears as sexy as the Xbox console and has been overhauled under the hood. It’s three times more sensitive and has a larger, 60-degree field of view. In a demo, the doodad’s high-definition camera easily

displayed crystal-clear 1080p video and could detect up to seven people, though it lagged as more folks stood in front of it. The basic motion detection appears vastly improved, but the voice detection feature wasn’t made available to try out, adding to the list of unknowns. Controller: The new controller’s layout is mostly unchanged, but the bulky battery bump is gone from the back. The Xbox One shows promise with a sleek shell and a new Kinect detector that seems to perform fine — at least if you don’t try to confuse it with too many people at once. But the lack of games is notable, as are lingering questions about what it can do without an Internet connection. There are questions that remain to be answered.

ic quarterbacks with the potential to take their teams to the Super Bowl multiple times over their careers. Both teams have great receivers, as Boldin, Quinton Patton, Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis (San Francisco) and Harvin, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate (Seattle) are all playmakers. At running back, Frank Gore and Marshawn Lynch are both hard to bring down. However, if it came down to the 49ers and Seahawks in the playoffs, I would go with the 49ers. They have

more experience, a better offensive line, a better offense and a better defense. Seattle’s pass rush isn’t great, while the 49ers are loaded with depth on defense (and offense). In addition, the Seahawks went 4-6 on the road in 2012 (including the playoffs), so a game at Candlestick Park would be hard for them to win. Both the 49ers and Seahawks are tremendous teams with lots of depth and talent, and no one would be surprised to see either in the Super Bowl. I think the 49ers and Broncos will be in the Super Bowl, because those are the two most talented teams in the league. Both teams have depth, experience and no glaring weaknesses, and that’s going to carry them far. The NFL is a sport where teams that get hot at the right time can go on a run (the last three Super Bowl champions have failed to win 11 regularseason games), but in 2013, expect the best teams to stay alive until the end. The best teams in the league have pushed all the right buttons, and as a result, there is a select group leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else. The Broncos, 49ers, Patriots and Seahawks are all in that group, and all will definitely be in contention. Most expect two of those four teams to be in the Super Bowl, but then again, upsets happen. Unfortunately for upset-minded teams, it’s going to be harder than ever to take down the top teams. In other words, expect the favorites to actually make it through to the Super Bowl this year.
