In the hosting game, it pays to be brutally honest. The two men who top our annual list of the Highest-Paid TV Personalities have each earned millions by being, what many people would consider, honest to the point of rudeness. Simon Cowell is not everyone’s cup of tea. The Brit made a splash in the U.S. in 2002 when “American Idol” hit FOX and changed reality television. While judges Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul gave a lot of consideration to the contestants’ feelings, Cowell was much tougher. If someone was awful, he told them so. But his willingness to be mean made it that much more exciting when he actually liked a singer. continued on next page >>>

From left: Howard and Beth Stern, Oprah Winfrey, and Simon Cowell

Cowell’s run as a judge on “American Idol” ended in 2010. He can still be seen calling the honest shots on “The X Factor,” which returns Sept. 11. While that show might not get the same ratings as “American Idol,” Cowell still earns plenty of money. We estimate that between June 2012 and June 2013, Cowell earned $95 million, putting him in a tie with Howard Stern for first place on our list of the Highest-Paid TV Personalities. Most of Cowell’s money comes from his ownership stakes in “The X Factor” (which now airs in 41 different countries) and “Got Talent,” which is the biggest-selling television franchise in the world. There are versions in Vietnam, Afghanistan and China. Not only does Cowell get money from all of those shows, he also gets to scout for talent for his Syco record label. He’s the man behind Leona Lewis and One Direction. In 2006, Stern left traditional radio for a lucrative deal at Sirius Satellite Radio. Being off the public airwaves has allowed the shock jock to get as raunchy as he wants without having to worry about FCC fines. But Stern hasn’t hesitated to bite the hand that feeds him. He recently failed in an attempt to revive a lawsuit against Sirius claiming that the company owes him $300 million for reaching certain subscriber milestones. ENTERTAINMENT

Kobe and his gorgeous wife Vanessa

Sirius says those targets were reached only because the company merged with XM. Like Cowell, Stern also earns millions on TV. For the second year in a row he’s hosting on Cowell’s “America’s Got Talent.” To compile our list, we talked to producers, managers, agents and other in-the-know folks to come up with estimates for how much each celebrity earned from entertainment-related work. The research was done for our Celebrity 100 list, which measures earnings between June 2012 and June 2013. We do not deduct for taxes or things like agent fees and the other expenses of being a celebrity. In third place is another celebrity who doesn’t worry much about being loved. Glenn Beck’s whole career has been built on angering large portions of

the American public in the interest of appealing to the right-wing fringe. Seeing that the group could earn him more money than he was making on FOX News, Beck took his act to the Internet in 2011 with The Blaze, a subscription website devoted to content from Beck and his fellow thinkers. His fans are happy to pay $100 per year for access to the site. We estimate that between June 2012 and June 2013 Beck earned $90 million. Perennial top earner Oprah Winfrey sank to fourth place on our list this year with an estimated $77 million in earnings following the disappearance of income from her syndicated talk show. The billionaire is doing fine though. Winfrey has been able to dedicate her considerable power to turning things around at her cable network, OWN. Thanks to must-see interviews like her two-night talk with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong and comedies fromTyler Perry, OWN is now profitable.

Lessons of good followship Sherry D. Strothers is a life coach and Lipstick Leader founder. She serves currently as a Chief Warrant Officer in the U.S. Navy with 27 years of active service. She is also a mother, entrepreneur, consultant, speaker, writer, strategist and is active within many leadership organizations. Sherry has one passion... the empowerment of women. She has mentored thousands of women over the years as a leader within the military. She serves to inspire, cultivate self-esteem, challenge and demonstrate her “never give up” attitude. Go to SherryStrothers.com to learn more. Do you find it difficult to inspire others to follow your lead? Do your superiors sometimes tell you that you’re too pushy or bossy? If you have experienced problems while leading, it may be because you never learned to follow. The Free Dictionary defines followship “as the practice of doing what other people suggest, rather than taking the lead”. The lessons of being an effective follower are often overlooked because we are so focused on being the boss we don’t appreciate the role of being a subordinate. To follow effectively means that you make your leaders look their absolute best. In fact the 1st law of Robert Greene’s book the 48 Laws of Power describes it best. Law # 1 is “Never Outshine the Master - Always make those above you feel comfortably superior. In your desire to please or impress them, do not go too far in displaying your talents or you might accomplish the opposite – inspire fear and insecurity. Make your masters appear more brilliant than they are and you will attain the heights of power”. Without understanding the characteristics of being an effective follower you may not be an effective leader.

Those characteristics of effective followship are: •  Humility – You should never strive for the limelight, always give the credit to your boss. Let them be the ones to give you credit. (If you don’t get the credit you feel you deserved, don’t be-

come resentful and bad mouth anyone; because that behavior will damage your professional image). •  Loyalty – Always speak highly of your superiors and support their policies. (Don’t follow blindly. If you must question orders or policies, address your boss in private. As a member of the military I have been trained to follow all orders. My standards of followship are if the orders are not illegal, immoral or unethical they will be followed). •  Team Building – Be the peace maker and encourage others to give

their best efforts. (If you know of people in the organization that are unhappy with the work environment and love to discuss their dissatisfaction with everyone; avoid getting pulled into negative conversations and always interject positive facts when necessary). •  Dedication – Always meet or exceed deadlines, don’t take time off work unless absolutely necessary and give a 100% effort when on the clock. If you implement effective followship, you will become invaluable to your superiors. Most importantly when you become the leader, you will know what to expect from your subordinates. Sherry’s books are available from her website, SherryStrothers.com: • Strength is in the Struggle - This book will enable you to learn about yourself and thus tap into the strength you have in abundance. Consider this book as your GPS to success! • How to Break the Glass Ceiling Without a Hammer - As a member of the Professional Women Network, Sherry is one of 30 international coaches and consultants selected to co-author this book for Career Strategies for Women.

Sharpen memory with a six-calorie snack

For a razor-sharp memory, give your mouth this 6-calorie snack to munch on: a stalk of celery. Celery is a top source of a highpowered flavonoid known as luteolin, and these compounds may help cool off destructive inflammation in the brain’s memory center (otherwise known as the hippocampus). Not a bad trade for 6 calories. Sending a Signal
Over time, brain inflammation can interfere with memory, magnify depressed feelings, accelerate dementia, and perhaps even play a role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease and other aging-brain conditions. Enter luteolin. New cell studies suggest that it may mute the nerve signals that tell immune cells in the brain to release inflammatory chemicals called cytokines. Munch, Sip, Sprinkle
You can eat celery stalks as a snack, blend celery into smoothies, or sprinkle chopped celery onto salads for extra crunch. No celery lurking about in the back of your fridge? No problem. Respectable levels of luteolin can also be found in green peppers, chili peppers, spinach, lettuce, chamomile tea, and thyme. Put these four other brain-building habits into play as well: • Set aside time for a snooze. A mini nap is your brain’s best friend. • Give your mind a workout with mental challenges, helping you train your brain to stay sharp. • Build more buddies. Social networking can help cut the risk of mental decline in half. • Exercise feeds brain cells.

How to make time for exercise By Jessamyn Patterson It’s no secret, we’re all busy. It’s kind of a fact of life these days. Between children, work, spouses, family, houses, bills, kid activities, church, community activities, responsibilities—the list could go on and on—it’s really hard to find time to exercise. However just because we’re all busy, our workouts don’t have to become nonexistent. Our bodies and mindsets get such fantastic physical and mental returns from exercising, it makes it so important that we create healthy living to become a priority. Here are some helpful ideas to support you crossing “exercise” off your daily to-do list: • Prepare the night before. Set out your workout clothes, shoes, socks, water bottle, and anything else you might need. If you’re going to the gym, make sure there’s gas in the car. Preparation alleviates a lot of potential “reasons” for not working out. • Wear your workout clothes (except to work, of course). I put on my workout clothes first thing in the morning because it not only reminds me to exercise, but on those crazy busy days I’m ready to take advantage of every free

Step 1: Know What You Can Afford

Your first step when making any large purchase should be to assess your current financial situation. Review your monthly income, subtract all anticipated expenses, and make sure there’s money left to not only afford a car payment, but also to contribute to your savings. Adding a car payment to your monthly budget shouldn’t leave you without money remaining for things like groceries or unexpected expenses.

Step 2: Review Your Credit Inventory

Take a comprehensive look at your at your current debt. Are you in goodstanding on all prior loan commitments and credit cards? If not, it may be difficult to obtain financing at a low interest rate, which will result in a higher monthly payment. So, if you’re behind on other loans, take the steps now to get in good shape to purchase a car. Go back to step 1 if need be. Once you’ve made sure all your debts are in

Step 4: Shop Around for the Best Rate

Rates are low right now. Before walking into a dealership, check interest rates at different lenders and read the fine print for any hidden fees. The key to a good auto loan is striking the right balance between the rate and how long to finance the loan. New vehicles will have a lower interest rate, but the monthly payments will be larger. Look for the shortest term you can afford without breaking your budget.

Step 5: Get Pre-approved

Once you’ve shopped around, increase your buying power by visiting your chosen lender and getting a quick, pre-approved loan. A salesperson will be more willing to bargain if how much you’ve been approved for and what are willing to pay has already been determined. Keep your payment threshold in mind and allow your pre-approval to lead discussions at the negotiating table. It’ll result in purchasing a car at a price that’s right for your budget.

The benefits of online learning By Tom Snyder Ivy Tech Community College I strongly believe that the future of higher education lies with online learning. Increasingly, colleges and university students now find themselves with other obligations beyond that of getting a degree. Jobs and family commitments make equal demands on their time. Having the option of taking online classes and studying on their own time is critically important. At the same time, many state institutions are unable to accommodate all those who want to take classes on campus, escalating the demand for online learning.

Finally, lifelong learning must now be a part of everyone’s career plans. In today’s job market, taking online courses help workers remain competitive and they don’t need to take time off from their jobs to do this. Community colleges have been in the forefront of online learning. In the 2010-11 semester, Ivy Tech in Indiana had more than 79,000 unduplicated students in 300 credit earning online courses. Governor Jerry Brown of California just announced a pilot program offering low-cost online courses to the state’s public institutions of higher education. The emphasis will be placed on course work for entry-level math,

college algebra, and elementary statistics -- subjects that normally have high failure rates. Students need to determine if online learning is an option for them because not everyone does well with this type of study. Some questions that any potential online students should ask is whether or not they can learn independently; how organized they are with their time; whether they are computer savvy; their level of reading comprehension; and if they have at least ten hours a week to devote to each course.

Many make the mistake of assuming that an online class will be easier

Tuition rates made fair for vets By Terry Howell, Military Advantage In January of this year, Chairman Jeff Miller (FL) and Ranking Member Mike Michaud (ME) of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs introduced bipartisan legislation (H.R. 357) that would require state-operated schools to give veterans “in-state tuition” rates even though they may not be residents of the states where the schools are located. The requirement would apply to state schools which have programs which are eligible for the GI Bill. According the House VA Committee’s press release, the legislation has

been met with early support from several Veterans Service Organizations, including the Student Veterans of America and VFW. Michael Dakduk of the Student Veterans of America said, “We fully support Chairman Miller’s and Congressman Michaud’s efforts to provide in-state tuition to student veterans regardless of residency status. The ‘GI Bill Tuition Fairness Act of 2013’ addresses the issue of inequity within the Post 9/11 GI Bill and will do a great deal to support veterans’ success in higher education.” The VFW’s Executive Director, Bob

Wallace was quoted in the January 23, 2013 press release, “Over the last couple of years, the VFW has heard from countless veterans driven into more expensive college programs because public schools offered no flexibility in residency requirements, prohibiting veterans from attending at the in-state rate.” Adding, “The VFW is proud to see that Chairman Miller and Ranking Member Michaud have taken a bold stance to ensure student-veterans attending public schools receive a reasonably-priced education at the public school of their choice, as we intended when we passed the Post-9/11 GI Bill.”

than one taken in a traditional classroom. Often online instructors assign more reading materials than required in a regular classroom to ensure that students are engaged. Motivation is key to an online student’s success as is his ability to reach out to both instructors and fellow students using software such as Blackboard. That software program seamlessly integrates social media, making it possible to create online communities that are course specific. Blogs, tweets, podcasts, webcasts, online chats, discussion boards, and virtual study jams are all part of the online mix. Success in an online course often depends on how connected a student feels to his instructor and fellow students. I believe that online learning has the potential to revolutionize higher education. Students will be able to learn at their own pace and problems as simple as finding a place to park on campus will be eliminated. Public colleges and universities simply cannot build new facilities to accommodate all those who need credits in higher education. In addition, credit hours taken online particularly at a community college are often less expensive. It therefore makes good financial sense for a student to take core courses online at a community college and then transfer those credits to a four year institution.

Historic landing of F-35B at Miramar Photos and story Douglas Aguillard It was around noon on July 30, 2013, and several F/A-18s from Marine squadrons VMFA 314 “The Black Knights” and VMFA (AW) 225 “The Vikings” were taking off from the runways at Marine Corps Air Station Mi-

ramar, just northeast of San Diego and heading out over the Pacific Ocean, when word came from the base’s control tower, “She’s 65 miles out.” Within a few minutes, word had spread up and down the flight line. Marines started coming out from hang-

Suddenly, she was there. Overhead, a Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II from VMFA-121 “The Green Knights” came flying in from the east. She was about to make history as the first F-35B to land at MCAS Miramar. The F-35B, piloted by the squadron’s commanding officer, Lt. Colonel Scott, flew over the airfield and made a turn, water vapor seemly swallowing up his aircraft. When the Lt. Colonel made his approach, he came in with wheels down to do a “touch and go” landing, but pulled up when he was approximately 30 feet above the ground. He made another pass, then landed. He taxied the plane over to where the media and several high-ranking Marines from the airfield’s Operation Center were staged. Interviews were conducted and the me-

dia was able to get a closer view of the plane. The Marine Corps currently has nine F-35Bs, all stationed at MCAS Yuma with “The Green Knights,” and 10 pilots capable of flying them. Eventually, the F-35B will replace all of the AV-8B Harrier IIs, the F/A-18s Hornet/ Super Hornet, and the EA-6B Prowler. The Lightning II is capable of hovering and providing the close air/ground support to the Marine infantry. Like the Harrier, it can fly supersonic with the fighter capabilities of the Hornets. It can be outfitted for the anti-electronics warfare such as the current mission of the Prowler. By 2016, the F-35B should be calling MCAS Miramar, its home.

Jolie surprises fans at event, talks about new movie ANAHEIM, Calif. -- There was a lot to marvel atduring Saturday’s presentation at Disney fan event D23, which highlighted the movie studio’s live action slate through 2015. But what really got fans out of their seats was a surprise appearance by Angelina Jolie, who popped up to introduce the audience to a few clips from 2014’s Sleeping Beauty tale,Maleficent.

The actress took the stage in a typical black outfit with just a bit of sparkle: diamond drops at her ears and her engagement ring. “I’m so excited to be here!” she said, before reminiscing about the horns she wore as Maleficent on set. “I miss them. I love them.” Jolie spoke of how children responded to her imposing character, whose horns are offset by glowing


eyes, dangerously sharp cheekbones and ruby red lips. “People with little kids would visit the set, and I would think, ‘I’m a Disney character,’ “ she said, to laughter. “And I would go over to the children, and they’d scream and run off. One little kid even said, ‘Mommy, please tell the mean witch to stop talking to me.’ I guess we did a good job.” How did her daughter Vivienne end up with a bit part playing Young Aurora? “Vivienne was the only 4-year-old who wouldn’t scream,” said Jolie. “She and I got to be part of it together.” The actress then introduced some footage from the film, including a scene of the quarrelsome pixies, a shot of Vivienne as Young Aurora running through a field, and Elle Fanning playing the grown-up princess, destined to fall under Maleficent’s curse. Fans, added Sean Bailey, president of Walt Disney Studios, will finally find out what drove Maleficent to curse the innocent baby. And where was the Jolie-Pitt clan during the D23 presentation? “They are playing at the (theme) park now,” said Jolie.

What are points when buying a home? Some of the the most common questions asked by people when shopping for a home loan involve points: What are points? Should I pay them? How will they affect what I pay every month? Simply put, a point, also called a discount point, is prepaid interest on the loan. A point is equivalent to a percentage of your loan amount – one point equals one percent. Paying for points is a way to lower the interest rate on your loan because the more points you pay for, the lower the interest rate you receive. However, it’s important to remember that this is interest you are paying for in advance and in some cases will be due at closing. If you are refinancing your VA home loan, you may have the option to purchase your points in cash or to roll the payment into the loan amount. If you are buying a new home with a VA loan, you will have to pay for those points at closing. Your lender, not the Department of Veterans Affairs, sets the interest rate, points and closing costs, and they may vary from lender to lender. As long as the borrower is paying “reasonable discount points on VA-guaranteed loans”

and $5,265 in closing costs. To find out if this makes sense to pay for points, divide your monthly savings into the points paid, and the answer is how many months it will take to recover the additional amounts paid into points. $61 into $4000 is just over 65 months, or nearly 5-1/2 years.  Once you have this number, you can compare that savings with your budget. It’s important to consider what your goals are for your home – if you plan on staying in your home for the long term, a lower interest rate will save you thousands over the life of your loan. One other important factor to consider is that points may be tax deductible, so make sure you consult with a financial advisor or your Home Loan Expert to see how this may help you as well.  HOUSING

Previewing Special Teams

mance in their 31-10 loss to the Seahawks in the exhibition opener, one has to question if Telesco and Co. assembled enough talented players to replace some of those veterans he failed to re-sign over the offseason – many of whom were key contributors on the kick coverage and return teams. For the night, the Seahawks clearly outplayed the Chargers in the special teams area by posting 150 total return yards (4-94 yds. on punt returns; 2-56 yds. on interception returns) to the Chargers 8 yards (1-8 yds. on punt returns; 0 interceptions). Although the Chargers outgained the Seahawks on

By Art Garcia, Jr. Over the past few years the special teams unit of the Chargers hasn’t been very special. And although the unit as a whole improved under Rich Bisaccia the past two seasons, it’s been another area on the team where injuries and depth have taken its toll. With veterans Mike Scifres, Nick Novak and Mike Windt returning to man the punter, kicking and long-snapping duties, respectively, the Chargers have a reliable and solid threesome performing those all-important duties every Sunday. Following a disappointing perfor-

#11 Eddie Royal favor to improve their special teams is new coach Kevin Spencer. Entering his 23rd year in the NFL, Spencer has spent the last 15 years as a special teams coach with stints in Indianapolis (1998-01), Pittsburgh (2002-06) and Arizona (2007-12). He won a Super Bowl championship with the Steelers after the 2005 season and an NFC Championship with the Cardinals in ’08. What makes his hiring so intriguing is Spencer’s knack for developing some of the best young returners into gamechanging players. In 1999, Terrence Wilkins was selected to a number of NFL All-Rookie teams after returning both a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns that year playing for the Colts. In his five seasons learning under Spencer, Atwaan Randle-El set a Steelers’ team record with four punt returns for touchdowns. In his time with the Cardinals both LaRod Stephens-Howling and Patrick Petersen shined under Spencer. In 2010, Stephens-Howling led the NFL with 1,542 kickoff return yards and scored on returns of 102 yards and 96 yards. During his rookie year in 2011, Peterson tied an NFL record by returning four punt returns for touchdowns, becoming only the fourth player in league history to return four punt return scores in a season. Peterson also became the first player in NFL history to return four punts of 80-plus yards and his 99-yard punt return for a touchdown in overtime against the Rams is the second-longest in NFL history. Named the NFL Special Teams Coach of the Year in 2003, Spencer has a number of talented players competing for the kickoff and punt return duties in 2013. The question is which one of the players listed below can be effective not only as a returner, but can also perform on the coverage teams and their positions as well? Here is the list

Redemption. After two years of coming up just short of victory at the 2.45-mile, 11turn road course, Kyle Busch finally had things go his way at Watkins Glen (N.Y) International. This time, Busch closed the deal and claimed victory in the 355k at The Glen NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday to earn his second career victory at the iconic track and his third win of the 2013 season.

“When it’s your day, it’s your day, and today was ours,” Busch said. “This Toyota Camry today, it deserved to be in victory lane the last couple years here, so this was ‘Rowdy’s’ revenge. I’m glad it’s back in victory lane today.” Busch, driver of the No. 18 M&M’s Toyota Camry for

Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), started fifth. He moved into second place by lap 23, chasing leader Marcos Ambrose. At lap 29, Busch brought his No. 18 Camry to the attention of his pit crew for four tires and fuel, along with a wedge adjustment to help tighten his loose-handling racecar on the righthand turns. Busch made his final pit stop of the day on lap 59, and the timing couldn’t have been better. The caution flag waved as the M&M’s crew was performing their pit stop, which handed the lead to Busch since he had pitted before the caution. The next event on the Sprint Cup schedule is the Pure Michigan 400 on Sunday, Aug. 18 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.

Cont’d. from Page 18 of the top three specialists competing to land the starting return spots.

Richard Goodman WR/KR

Entering his fourth year with the Chargers, Goodman appears to be a lock to make the team now that fellow receiver Denario Alexander is out for the season. Goodman’s 27.6 yard kick return average ranks fourth in the NFL over the past two years and his 105-yard kickoff return versus the Raiders in 2011 is the longest in franchise history.


Eddie Royal WR/KR/PR

As with Goodman, Alexander’s injury all but ensures Royal a roster spot because of his duel-threat abilities. When healthy, Royal’s explosiveness makes him a threat at both wide-out and inside as a slot receiver and prior to last season he has a career average of 11.9 yards per punt return. Entering his sixth NFL season, Royal has three career touchdowns as a return specialist – two on punt returns and one kickoff return.

Keenan Allen WR/KR/PR

Projected to be a first round pick prior to a knee injury late in his junior year, many ‘experts’ feel he could be the steal of the draft if he can stay healthy. A standout receiver for the Cal Berkley Bears, Allen left school after his junior season having caught a school-record 205 passes, for 2,570 yards (third in school history) and 17 touchdowns (seventh). Allen also averaged 12.0 yards as a punt returner and 22.6 on kickoffs for the Golden Bears. In just three seasons on campus he recorded 3,458 all-purpose yards.







The Endzone

The special teams unit will face a huge challenge this week as the team travels to Chicago to battle the Bears this Thursday night. Facing perhaps the best return specialist in NFL history in Devin Hester, it’s going to be interesting to see how much Spencer’s unit improves following a poor performance against the Seahawks. With roster spots on the line, who is going to step into the spotlight and prove to Mike McCoy that they are one of the best 53 players to keep on the final roster?

Husband says; “When I’m gone you’ll never find another man like me.” Wife replied; “What makes you think I’d want another man like you!” When I was young I used to pray for a bike, then I realized that God doesn’t work that way, so I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.

and says, “Did you know your eyes match your swim trunks?” He says, “Why? Are my eyes bulging?” “I told my wife that a man is like a fine wine... I always get better with age. The next day, she locked me in the wine cellar.” Innkeeper: The room is $15 a night. It’s $5 if you make your own bed. Guest: I’ll make my own bed. Innkeeper: Good. I’ll get you some nails and wood.
