Marine Corps Commandant signals last days of gay ban Marine Corps would not obstruct new, inclusive policy Remarks made yesterday at a Pentagon briefing by Marine Corps Commandant General James Conway signal the removal of one of the final hurdles to the implementation of openly gay service and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Commandant Conway stated that “if the law changes, we pride our Corps in leading the services in many, many things, and we’re going to have to lead in this too.” Palm Center Director Aaron Belkin stated, “Commandant Conway’s words are powerful. He has not been supportive of this change but he has now made clear that once the law is changed, the Marine Corps will set the pace for implementation of open service without delay.” The General’s comments come as the Senate prepares for consideration of repeal in the FY2011 Defense Authorization bill in September. The Pentagon Working Group assigned to address the implementation of repeal is due to submit its report no later than December 1. The Palm Center has noted that an affirmative non-discrimination policy on the basis of sexual orientation must be included in the Working Group’s recommendations. “Liz Cheney, Commandant Conway, Colin Powell and Bill O’Reilly are prepared for openly gay troops to serve,” stated Palm Center Deputy Executive

Director Christopher Neff. “Surely, this leaves only a few who will continue to ask tax-payers to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to fire good troops because they are gay or lesbian.” The Palm Center is a research institute of the University of California, Santa Barbara, committed to sponsoring state-of-the-art scholarship to enhance the quality of public dialogue about critical and controversial issues of the day. For the past decade, the Palm Center’s research on sexual minorities in the military has been published in leading social scientific journals. The Palm Center seeks to be a resource for university-affiliated as well as independent scholars, students, journalists, opinion leaders, and members of the public.

Navy Choppers provide aid to Pakistani flood victims By Ian Graham

As flooding continues to plague Pakistan, the U.S. Navy is providing helicopters from a detachment in Bahrain to carry supplies into the stricken country’s Swat valley. Members of the Navy’s Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron 15 Detachment 2 spoke in a “DoD Live” bloggers roundtable today to explain the ins and outs of their mission. To date, the U.S. has pledged to provide more than $76 million in assistance to flood-affected people in Pakistan. Twenty-two U.S. military and civilian aircraft are in Pakistan in support of flood relief operations. U.S. helicopters have evacuated more than 5,000 people and delivered more than

Letters to Military Press

Good morning, Just read your column in the Aug 15th edition which discussed the Sherrod controversy. You’re off the mark on several points all of which were cleverly left out of your column: - Brietbart never claimed to be a journalist. - If we’re going to talk “standards” then why don’t you apply “standards” to the lopsided reporting rampant throughout much of the media. How many major networks covered the Missouri vote against the health care reform plan for example? How many articles have appeared in the NY Times, LA Times, etc casting the New York mosque debate as one of religious libertly? If we’re talking standards can we apply them equally and without bias? - Sherrod’s commentary - all of it does tell a quaint little story about her past. But fact is, her story does reveal that she used her official capacity in her official office in a racially biased manner. Just because she changed after the fact and made nice with the farmer does not negate the fact that she abused her authority and made decisions based on the color of his skin. - If you’re going to call Ann Coulter someone who couldn’t possibly be taken seriously, will you apply the same to Rachel Maddow or Olbermann? And note, Coulter is not and does not pretend to be a journalist. She’s entertainment and will readily admit as much. And while we’re on the subject of Coulter, do you support what happened to her in Canada - or do you not know about given the lopsided reporting prevalent in media these days? - Lastly, you never had the guts to ask where Brietbart got the edited video from. This is the great untold part of the entire Sherrod story. Someone gave Brietbart an edited copy of the video. Who? NAACP? Obama operatives? Again, this question will never be exlored - see above comments about lopsided media reporting. Best Regards, A Dunn San Diego CA To: Mr. A. Dunn...regarding Mr. Sherrod’s column In our Aug 1st edition. You brought up some very intuitive and legitimate points. Mr. Sherods’ opinions are not nessessarily the same as The Military Press’s, but in fairness to our readers we try to present both sides of an issue. Your comments that we printed in our Aug.15th edition are proof that we care about differences. My opinions can be quite different than those of my fellow workers. So in fairness to them, when I express my opinions I will always present theirs, especially when they disagree. The only way our people and nation can be a beacon for freedom is to air our differences. – R. Matz Dear Military Press,

“It’s all about service.” Made me proud that to come from a military family, even though I know it meant a different kind of service to him. My father and grandfather talk about the unexplained battles at the VFW all the time, and Tarawa comes up now and again. It is to painful to listen to the stories so I don’t hang around for them, but when the first film came out on the Military Channel, the only channel Pops watches besides Myth Busters, we all gathered around and watched the film. My Pops cried as he watched. According to him, the film really told the truth. Scott Imperial Beach, CA Steven Barber certainly is doing some great work, and is a really heck of nice guy.

MILITARY UPDATE By Tom Philpott I MP

Quality-of-life raise for all disabled vets fades Disabled veterans were thrilled in 2007 when the Veterans Disability Benefits Commission asked Congress to enact an immediate “quality of life” increase to disability payments from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The special increase, said VDBC commissioners, should be across the board, benefiting all veterans with service-connected health conditions, and it should be as large as 25 percent for the most severely disabled. The commission argued that current disability pay compensates for average loss in lifetime earnings but fails to provide any added monetary award for diminished quality of life. Quality of life “is addressed in a limited fashion” by Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) payable for loss of limbs or use of limbs, said the commission. But it called for development of a “systematic methodology” for evaluating and compensating for the impact of disability on quality of life. Meanwhile, Congress should allow an interim increase of up to 25 percent. What happen to that idea? It fell flat, said retired Lt. Gen. Terry Scott, a former Army Ranger who chaired the VDBC. “The terms ‘across the board’ and ‘up to 25 percent’ were not well

received anywhere outside the veterans community,” Scott explained during an interview Monday in Washington D.C. His own position on an across-theboard increase for diminished quality of life also has changed, Scott said. That’s significant because he not only had chaired the VDBC through years of hearings and study but Scott now chairs the Advisory Committee on Disability Compensation. That panel was created by Congress in 2008, part of the Veterans’ Benefits Improvement which directed that the VA secretary modernize the disability compensation system and address its mammoth backlog of claims. Scott’s fallback position to an acrossthe-board raise, which the advisory committee also seems to embrace, is to pay something extra to recognize loss in quality of life only for the most seriously disabled veterans. That could be done by expanding the SMC portion of VA disability pay or by adopting a similarly rigid model for compensating for “noneconomic loss.” “Where I have retrenched, based on this committee’s studies and the things we’ve done, [is to] pretty much agree that the additive monetary benefit for quality of life should be based on really severe disability.” The “good thing” about using the SMC model, Scott said, “is that it is very tightly prescribed. There is not a lot of latitude to deal with. You fit inside the parameters of one of those categories

or you do not…It is not subject to a lot of subjectivity [or] any sort of gamesmanship.” Feedback from VA and Congress “was that a targeted approach for those suffering from severe disability, and a very clear ‘non-economic’ or qualityof-life loss [payment] is a sellable proposition,” Scott said. The 11-member advisory committee is a lower-profile entity than was the VDBC. It has met 20 times since fall of 2008 with responsibility both to advise and to pressure the VA secretary on steps, schedules and priorities for modernizing VA’s Schedule for Ratings Disabilities (VASRD). VA claim adjudicators have used the VASRD for more than 60 years

master plan for overhauling the VASRD over six years. Scott’s committee, which includes medical and scientific experts, is monitoring that effort closely. “The principle goal of the committee is to continue to over watch the plan, making sure it is not abandoned in favor of some other priority. In other words, we are probably going to be their hair shirt in terms of saying, ‘Okay, we’ve seen your plan. You said you’re going to do this in 2010 and this in 2011. Tell us where you are.’ ” Scott applauded VA’s work so far to upgrade the VASRD including changes in the way traumatic brain injury and burn scars are rated. The master plan, he said, includes a schedule to review disability ratings across all 15 body

Feedback from VA and Congress “was that a targeted approach for those suffering from severe disability, and a very clear ‘non-economic’ or qualityof-life loss [payment] is a sellable proposition,” Scott said. to set disability ratings, which in turn determine the size of monthly disability payments. Critics have long argued it needs to be reformed to take into account modern medical knowledge and technical advances. VA officials last year developed a

systems. “If they are able to execute that plan, I think it will aid veterans, present and future” and reduce the backlog of claims, Scott said. An up-to-date VASRD will simplify the medical review process, simplify claim forms, and cut down on the time adjudicators need to reach a rating decision. By law, the advisory committee must deliver a report to the VA secretary and to Congress every two years on the effectiveness of disability compensation programs and progress on VASRD reform. The first biennial report was delivered to VA Secretary Eric Shinseki in late July. Among its recommendations are proposed procedures for VA to follow to review and revise the rating schedule. But the report also notes a lukewarm reaction by VA officials to the committee’s suggestion to broaden the purpose of Special Monthly Compensation to allow some veterans to see pay enhancements for loss in quality of life. As the secretary noted back to the committee, the phrase “quality of life” does not appear in any statute or regulation on disability pay so any bump in pay on those grounds would have to be approved Congress. The advisory committee proposes to clear that hurdle by referring only to added pay for “non-economic loss” rather than quality of life loss. So the committee promises a future recommendation to clarify how SMC might be adjusted to address noneconomic loss for some severely disabled vets.

US, Colombian Marines strengthen bonds through nonlethal weapons training By Cpl. Alicia R. Giron, Continuing Promise

Marines with Company A, 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, Ground Combat Element of Special-Purpose Marine AirGround Task Force Continuing Promise 2010 taught nonlethal weapons tactics to Colombian Marines at Colombian Marine Corps Base Covenas, Colombia, Aug. 14, as part of a six day subject matter expert exchange. Subject matter expert exchange is just one essential mission of Operation Continuing Promise 2010, which also includes medical, dental, veterinary and engineering support, and disaster relief to partner nations to the Caribbean, Central and South America. The Special-Purpose MAGTF plays a vital role in sharing and learning valuable experience from host nations. U.S. Marines geared up with riot shields, shin guards and batons to show Colombian Marines the basics in nonlethal weapons and riot control. These skills are essential when dealing

with a populous that turns desperate after a natural disaster. Security and crowd control are chief concerns when providing humanitarian assistance. Colombian Marines also learned proper takedown techniques and enjoyed practical application with both U.S. and Colombian Marines. The six day exchange between Colombian and U.S. Marines included jungle survival, physical training, weapons and improvised explosive devices classes, a combat fitness test, amphibious assault vehicle demonstration and an amphibious assault landing while the USS Iwo Jima was in Covenas, Colombia, in support of Continuing Promise 2010.

New EFV prototype tests at Camp Pendleton By Capt. Masato Itoh. Marine Corps Installations West

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — Approaching a black dot on the GPS system, a squawk of radio static is followed by “this is command, approaching buoy alpha.” The vehicle commander replies with an affirming “roger command,” and a powerful roar erupts off to the left of Col. Keith Moore’s rigid-hulled inflatable boat, more commonly known as a RHIB. The newest variant of the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle throttles all 2,700 horsepower and lifts out of the glassy water gliding like a jet ski. Although the EFV program manager’s RHIB has no problem keeping up with the 30 mph speed of the 78,000-pound EFV, it is a breathtaking advancement from its venerable predecessor, the Amphibious Assault Vehicle, which comparatively crawls at 9 mph in water. Moore is observing a demonstration of the newest prototype, EFV Personnel Variant, System Development and Demonstration-2, at the Amphibious Vehicle Test Branch (AVTB) at Camp Del Mar.

The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin Al-Husseini The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin Al-Husseini By Chuck Morse

This is the remarkable story of Haj Amin al-Husseini who was, in many ways, as big a Nazi villain as Hitler himself. To understand his influence on the Middle East is to understand the ongoing genocidal program against the Jews of Israel. Al-Husseini was a bridge figure in terms of transporting the Nazi genocide in Europe into the post-war Middle East. As the leader of Arab Palestine during the British Mandate period, al-Husseini introduced violence against moderate Arabs as well as against Jews. Al-Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann in Palestine in 1937 and subsequently went on the Nazi payroll as a Nazi agent. Al-Husseini played a pivotal behind-the-scenes role in instigating a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq in 1941 as he urged Nazis and pro-Nazi governments in Europe to transport Jews to death camps, trained proNazi Bosnian brigades, and funneled Nazi loot into pro-war Arab countries. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Chuck Morse is a veteran radio talk show host and syndicated columnist who is regularly featured on WorldNetDaily.com.

Who was Haj Amin Al-Husseini? Appointed Mufti of Jerusalem by the British in 1921, Haj Amin al-Husseini was the most prominent Arab figure in Palestine during the Mandatory period. Al-Husseini was born in Jerusalem in 1893, and went on to serve in the Ottoman Army during World War I. Anti-British and anti-Jewish, the mufti was the key nationalist figure among Muslims in Palestine. Fearful that increased Jewish immigration to Palestine would damage Arab standing in the area, the mufti engineered the bloody riots against Jewish settlement in 1929 and 1936. Al-Husseini’s appointment as mufti was itself the subject of much controversy. The decision to grant

HISTORY + SUGGESTED READING I MP Council, expanding his already significant powers. Known later as the Grand Mufti, al-Husseini was able to establish himself as the preeminent Arab power in Palestine. One of the mufti’s most successful projects was the restoration of the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa mosque. With funds collected from India and various Arab states, the Dome was plated in gold. The impressive looks of the Dome greatly enhanced the status of Jerusalem in the eyes of Muslims throughout the world. Similarly, al-Husseini’s own status as Mufti of Jerusalem increased his standing as an influential Arab leader. The mufti was dismissed from his position following the riots of 1936. No longer able to stay in Palestine, he continued his extremist activities from abroad. During World War II, the mufti was involved in the mobilization of support for Germany among Muslims. In November 1941 the Mufti met with Hitler. Although he continued to be involved in politics, al-Husseini’s influence gradually declined after the defeat of the Arab armies in 1948.

Who was Adolph Hitler? al-Husseini the position was made by Herbert Samuel, the first high commissioner of Palestine. It was odd that Samuel, a British Jew, would appoint a man who would be responsible for so much unrest within the Mandatory area. Al-Husseini in fact had been sentenced to ten years in prison by the British for inciting riots in 1920. None of that sentence was served, as al-Husseini had fled to Transjordan, and was soon after amnestied by Samuel himself. For his part, al-Husseini had used his influence to quiet additional disturbances in 1921. He assured Samuel that he would continue to maintain order, and it was with this understanding that the high commissioner granted him the position of mufti. In the following year, he was also appointed to lead the Supreme Muslim

Adolf Hitler, a charismatic, Austrian-born demagogue, rose to power in Germany during the 1920s and early 1930s at a time of social, political, and economic upheaval. Failing to take power by force in 1923, he eventually won power by democratic means. Once in power, he eliminated all opposition and launched an ambitious program of world domination and elimination of the Jews, paralleling ideas he advanced in his book, Mein Kampf.

CHAPPY’S ON EAGLE’S WINGS I MP

HOW DO WE FIND HOPE? comfort, who bind wounds and dry tears. Remind people whose lives have been shadowed by evil that there is still plenty of good in the world.” How would it be if we did as my friend does, and create hope by helping others feel peace or by being a positive example or influence in our circle of friends and family? Maybe we can create our own opportunities to actually make these hopes come to be reality? We might be pleasantly surprised to see what happens if we gave an honest effort to accomplishing such desires. Do you think you would feel more joy, lightening of some of your own burdens, and even that hope you long for, if you saw it in others, due to your acts of kindness and efforts? I know it sure makes my day brighter and more hopeful. We know that, even the most positive and optimistic of us experience difficult days. We all have times when we are in one of those valleys of life’s landscape. We may even feel like we are in that proverbial “down on our luck” part of life. Some may actually develop clinical concerns of depression and despair. How can we maintain hope during these inevitable days? As Tom Hanks in “CAST AWAY” came to realize: “I had power over nothing, that’s when a feeling came over me like a warm blanket—I knew, somehow, that I had to stay alive, somehow, I had to keep breathing,

I have heard it said that hope is a universal yearning. In the Chaplain Corps, we once had in our vision statement a phrase, which stated: “Energizing with HOPE”. I always have felt that this is the work of a Chaplain or leader and have made it the creed, by which I have tried to emulate. And through my daily interactions with others, I have come to feel that most of us, desire that life filled with Hope. What is a person without hope? Have you felt the pain and despair of the thought, “there’s no hope”? Did you feel like a person with a punctured or torn out heart? I’ve been there. It’s a mass of pain and confusion. I have a friend who works on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, and in her limited spare time volunteers as a clown, who goes by the name of Hope. She, too, has the desire to see others experience and feel hope in their lives, and cultivates it through the acts of love, kindness and slapstick of her clown persona. Don’t we all find a smile of hope when we see clowns provide their entertainment and we can turn from the day-today grind of the world? Emily Dickinson calls hope, “a thing with feathers that perches in the soul.” It is said that hope is tenuous and fragile. And so, Rabbi Harold S. Kushner urges: “Be among those who reach out, who assist, who

even though there was no reason to hope… So that’s what I did…Then one day logic was proven wrong… because the tide came in and gave me a sail.” Now even though things weren’t the way he wanted, he said: “I know what I have to do now, I need to keep breathing, tomorrow the sun will rise, and who knows what the tide could bring.” We all ought to keep that in mind in our lives, we never know what is around the corner that could change our world. Well, here comes the Chappy in me…It is only when we carefully cultivate our own faith in God and experience His promised love in our lives, that we can and will be able to better withstand any of the difficulties that can daily beset us. This may be a hard concept to understand. However, I know that in combat, and I’m sure many on their way home right now, can attest to this, “there are no atheists in a fighting hole.” Why is that? The same reason most of us turn to our God, when we have our difficult times. We hope we aren’t alone. Well, we aren’t. This doesn’t mean we won’t have trying circumstances, but it also doesn’t mean that we can’t feel hope. Over the years serving as a Marine, Police Officer in the Los Angeles area, a Social Worker in Massachusetts, and as a Chaplain in the sea services,

CHAPPY’S ON EAGLE’S WINGS I MP in this variety of experience, there has been one thing that I have seen cheat the despair and pain of difficult times. It is caring and serving someone other than oneself. What a concept. Could this really be hope inspiring? You bet. Think about it. Think to the time in your life when you have felt the greatest joy. I would guess it was when you were assisting another to feel joy, love, and even hope. As we develop this kind of hope, it will abide in our lives and we will experience that joy that endures in spite of daily struggles. I long to have this more in my life. I know that when I practice this kind of faith promoting service, I receive the hope of a loving clown in my heart and share it

more freely with those around me. We truly have the ability to decide how we will deal with life and its many peaks and valleys. Look up, put on the smile of the one smiling down on you and increase your joy by sharing it with others. That’s what I want for you. I hope that my efforts in these articles bring a little of that to you. As in the movie I watched some time back… “Pay It Forward” you, “pay it forward” to three others this week and test out the hope and joy you will feel. I know it can change your life for the better. Test me on it… As always, it is my hope that this message will help you this week to, “mount up as on eagle’s wings”, and

renew a little of your strength to keep moving forward and find joy…(Isaiah 40:31) Until next week, may God bless you and may God continue to bless our great nation… SEMPER FI Chaplain Ringo, is the Command Chaplain at MCRD H&S BN, holds a Doctorate of Philosophy in Counseling, and is a Certified Trauma Specialist. www.yourchappy.com www.lifetraumasolutions.com www.serviceforhumanityfoundation.org

SPORTS NEWS By Brad Oremland, sports-central.com I MP

32 Greatest NFL Running Backs Joe Posnanski is quickly becoming one of the most popular writers at SI.com, and developing a substantial following for his own site. His writing is engaging, he chooses interesting topics, and he knows a ton about baseball. He does not, however, know a great deal about football, which made it surprising that he recently chose to create a list of 32 great running backs through history. He followed it up with a list of 32 great receivers. Posnanski is, very simply, not qualified to create a list of the 32 best running backs in history. He recognizes this, and even includes an explicit disclaimer: “this list is not saying the thirty-two GREATEST running backs but thirty-two GREAT running backs”. That said, when you create a limited list like that and put numbers next to the names, you’re obviously attempting to do exactly that. The disclaimer is basically his admission that there might be some mistakes. Below, I’ll present my own choices for the 32 greatest running backs in the history of professional football, plus a few names it was hard to leave off and comments on the players who made Posnanski’s list but not mine.

1. Jim Brown Jason Lisk at PFR has done some really interesting research suggesting that Brown’s accomplishments may have been inflated by the soft schedule he played in the Eastern Conference, and

2. Walter Payton He could do everything. He held the career rushing record for nearly two decades, might still have it if he’d played 16-game schedules his whole career. He was a fine receiver and a dedicated blocker. Payton had speed, but he wasn’t the fastest player. He had power, but he was too small to be a true power back. He could cut, but he wasn’t going to make anyone forget Gale Sayers or The Juice. No one, no RB in history, played with more heart. You just never saw this guy give up on a play, and he was an elite runner for over a decade. (Posnanski’s rank: 2)

free yourself

5. O.J. Simpson I know I already said this about Jim Brown, but Simpson’s 1973 and 1975 seasons may be the best by any running back in history. His 1973 single-season record for rushing yards per game still stands and has never been seriously challenged. (Posnanski’s rank: 7)

6. Marshall Faulk

3. Barry Sanders

that Jim Taylor might have been just as good. Taylor is criminally underrated because he was always overshadowed by Brown, and the data is well worth reading. But Brown’s combination of power and speed, backed up by otherworldly numbers, makes him an easy choice for the top position here. His 1958 and 1963 seasons are arguably the two best by any RB in history. (Posnanski’s rank: 1)

more a function of his receiving talent than his offensive system. It seems silly to me to suggest that there was any substantial difference between Sanders and Smith as receivers. (Posnanski’s rank: 3)

He’s remembered as a finesse runner who was useless in short yardage. Sanders scored double-digit rushing TDs six times, including a career-high 16 in 1991. The Emmitt/Barry debate is eternal, and at different times I’ve fallen on different sides of it. It’s close. (Posnanski’s rank: 4)

4. Emmitt Smith Like Payton, he had a ton of heart and was remarkably consistent and well-rounded. Unlike Payton, he was surrounded by great offensive talent. Posnanski, in making the case for Smith, cites his reception totals, as if this were

I know my list mostly agrees with Posnanski’s so far; that will cease after this entry. Faulk is the greatest dual threat runner-receiver in NFL history, better than Lenny Moore, Bobby Mitchell, Roger Craig, and everyone else. He could have been a Pro Bowl wide receiver, and he probably should have won three NFL MVP Awards. (Posnanski’s rank: 6)

7. LaDainian Tomlinson It’s amazing to me that anyone still ranks him outside the top 10. He’s clearly the top RB of his era, he’s second alltime in rushing TDs, he won an MVP

award, and he excelled for a really awful Charger team in 2003. (Posnanski’s rank: 13)

8. Steve Van Buren The most underrated HOF RB in history. His 1945 season is the equal of anything turned in by Payton, Sanders, Smith, Faulk, Tomlinson, Eric Dickerson ... he led the NFL in rushing and set a touchdown record, in a 10-game season, that stood for over a decade and was finally broken in a 14-game season. Van Buren’s 1947-49 three-year run rank (Posnanski’s rank: 28)

9. Eric Dickerson Posnanski wrote that Dickerson “didn’t look fast ... but nobody ever caught him from behind.” I guess that makes Darrell Green a nobody. (Green catches Dickerson from behind at 0:30 of the link) (Posnanski’s rank: 11)

10. Joe Perry This will not sit well with some people. Everyone ranks Joe Perry among the top 30, but almost nobody puts him in the top 10, and most rankers set him behind his teammate Hugh McElhenny. Perry wasn’t as flashy, but he was more consistent, he played forever — mostly at a high level — and for a couple years there, he was clearly the best RB in the league. (Posnanski’s rank: 25)

11. Jim Taylor The argument against Taylor, if you really want to make one, is that he only had five great seasons. That’s five more than most people, but his career accomplishments just don’t hold up against the best of the best. He also played behind an exceptionally talented offensive line, for an exceptionally gifted offensive coach. (Posnanski’s rank: 22)

What is the New American Dream? Money or Harmony? Are We Literally Dying to Be Thin & Rich? Is There A New American Dream? Many Americans believe that you can’t be too rich or too thin and many are literally killing themselves trying to prove that. Wealth and the perfect abs are often the measure for a successful life. In the mad rush to achieve that dream, Americans are working long hours, skipping meals, losing sleep, not taking care of their health to get the job done and make more money. But what if money and perfect abs aren’t the formula of true success? What if the true keys to success and happiness are harmony and balance? America’s Stress Epidemic - According to the last APA (American Psychological Association) Study, more than half of all adults report that they lay awake at night because of stress. More people report fatigue (53 percent), feelings of irritability or anger (60 percent). Other studies find that 67% of Americans are suffering because of weight problems and 80% of people suffer from back pain. A study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (2010) examined the connection between obesity and stress. This study noted that the most stressed employees were most likely to be obese. According to Grandmaster Y.K. Kim, modern philosopher, public speaker, author, successful entrepreneur and founder of the modern martial arts, there is a New American Dream that is the solution to this dilemma. “You must have balance and harmony to become truly successful,” he explains. In an effort to help guide Americans to achieve the New American Dream, Y K Kim created a CD/DVD program, The NEW American Dream & U.S. National Exercise. Y K Kim teaches people to practice the 5 kinds of fitness daily to be healthy, wealthy and successful and to spread the 5 kinds of fitness to their family and friends. Y.K. Kim explains that stress, poor habit and lack of exercise are literally killing Americans and with them the old American Dream. In his New American Dream program Kim provides mental exercises to create a new level of success. U.S. National Exercise provides physical exercises you can do without spending any extra time. You can exercise even while driving or sleeping. These unique programs have revolutionized people’s lifestyles. Y.K. Kim is a native of Seoul, Korea, Y.K. Kim serves as a living testament that the American dream is alive and kicking. He left his homeland in 1976 to come to the U.S., with only his black belt and a heart full of hope. Homeless and without a green card, he worked hard, shedding blood, sweat and tears to overcome cultural shock, financial difficulties and a language barrier to achieve a rare level of success. He is the author of several books, including: Winning is a Choice, Success in Martial Arts Business, and Health is the Foundation of Success. He also is an in-demand public speaker and the publisher and editor-inchief of Martial Arts World Magazine.

There are three players I rank lower than almost anyone else. Not by a lot, but by a little: Sayers, Earl Campbell, and McElhenny. Most educated fans and analysts put them all in the top 10. (Posnanski’s rank: 8)

SPORTS INTERVIEW By Art Garcia I MP

Interview with Buster Davis Out to prove he is not a bust, Davis looking for big things in 2010 Buster Davis was drafted in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft, number 30 overall. His career stats include just one start out of 19 games played; 30 receptions for 299 yards; a 10.0 yard average per catch; and just one touchdown reception. As a special teams performer he has four kickoff returns for 79 yards (19.8 avg) and eight punt returns for 67 yards (8.7 avg). He has heard all the criticism of the Chargers wasting a first round pick; his lack of toughness; a fragile player who can’t play at the NFL level; etc.; etc.; etc. Surprisingly, he isn’t upset at all the negative talk, rather, he understands why the fans feel the way they do and he knows this season is probably his last chance to prove himself worthy of a first round pick. With the season opener a short three weeks away, a humbled Davis sat down and answered some questions following the Chargers preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys. AG: How does it feel to be out there after a long offseason? BD: It feels good to work out the rustiness this preseason. We have a couple of more weeks to get this thing

done to get ready for the Monday night at KC. We’ve came out good (vs Chicago and Dallas), the thing we’ve done really well is run the ball. That’s one thing we need to thrive on this season because LT is gone. Ryan (Mathews) is a great young back who looks good and that’s only going to open up the passing game for us. If we can continue to get both things going (rushing and passing) we’re going to be one hell of an offense. AG: With Vincent apparently out for the season because a contract dispute, do you feel this is your chance to prove yourself? BD: The opportunity is great. I cherish every moment that I’m able to get out on the field just because of what happened to me last year (inactive weeks 1-15) – you just never know what is going to happen out there. So I’m just taking it a day at a time, continue to work hard, and if a small injury comes up or anything like that, I just need to block it out of my mind, keep working hard and stay focused because I can’t go backwards. AG: How hard as it been on you not being able to play because of injuries? BD: It’s been tough to be honest with you. It’s been tough but I focus on perseverance, staying strong and I have a great circle of people around me. My family helps me out mentally and talks

me through things – so I’m just staying focused. AG: Has there been anyone else besides family that you have talked to just to get the frustration off your chest? BD: It’s been kind of different and I’ve taken the time to learn about it (frustration) myself because I dug myself into this hole I’m in and I’m the one who is going to have to dig myself back out of it. A lot of my teammates will come in and talk to me because they see that I’m working and they know what I’m doing. So I’m just trying to be out there on the field and be that guy out there that they can count on every Sunday. AG: I’m sure you have heard all the criticism about you being a wasted 1st round draft pick, how has that affected you, if at all? BD: I don’t pay it no mind because what’s in this building and what’s going on in this locker room – a lot of people really don’t have a clue what is going on. So I listen to the coaches, the trainers, the staff and my teammates… I listen to those guys because that’s all that matters. AG: Since you have been injured every year since coming into the NFL in 2007, did you train any differently this year?

SPORTS INTERVIEW By Art Garcia I MP BD: I kind of did, I worked out on my own over this offseason. I kind of went back to my roots, I went back to college and did some of the old things I did back there like the strength training program that I had at LSU, which really helped me out a lot. I’m not saying that coach Hurd did anything wrong out here, but just for me personally, I felt I needed to do something different -- to try something different -- just because things (I’ve tried) in the past hasn’t been going well. AG: With that being said, what are you expectations this season? BD: I’m just trying my best to get my body in great shape and I did – I had a great offseason and a great camp. I’ve had a couple of minor injuries that kind of slowed me down but that’s typical because you get tired legs in camp. I’ve been healthy for the most part and I’m just trying to stick here (with the Chargers), trying to stay on the field, to be out there in every game and every practice every week.

mmm, think i blew that one! Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren completed their divorce, nine months after a single-car accident led to an admission by the world’s top-ranked golfer that he repeatedly cheated on his wife. “We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future,” Woods and Nordegren said in the joint statement. “We are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us.” William Alcott, a spokesman for law firm McGuireWoods LLP, which represented Nordegren, said no further details of the divorce settlement will be disclosed. A former nanny from Stockholm, the 30-year-old Nordegren will get $100 million, TMZ.com reported, citing unidentified people with direct knowledge of the property settlement

AG: As a former 1st round pick, what do you feel is your role on this team? BD: I’m trying to get as many catches as I can. I’m trying to be a big-play guy in this offense. I’m trying to be that… maybe we had something missing (in the offense) last year; maybe I can be that something. I’m trying to come in and make explosive plays every time I touch the ball because I know that’s what I can do. That’s what they brought me here for and that’s what my teammates are looking for -- so that’s my goal. AG: What do you accomplish this season?

want

to

BD: Staying healthy and winning the championship. At the end of the day, regardless of anything, it’s a team effort, it’s a team game and I want to win a championship and I want to be part of that. That’s one thing I couldn’t feel last year in that playoff run in those 11 wins… I didn’t get that team feeling -even though I was a part of it I wasn’t on the field playing. But now, it’s a little bit better feeling that you’re going through now that your part of it.

The Endzone: With LT Marcus McNeill’s holdout no closer to being resolved, secondyear G/T Brandyn Dombrowski has been impressive at left tackle through the first two preseason games he has started. Signed as a free agent out of San Diego State in 2008, Dombrowski spent that entire season on the practice squad. Besides starting two games at right guard last season, he also saw some action at LT filling in for an injured McNeill against the Browns and started the final seven games at RT when Jeromey Clary was lost for the season with an ankle injury. Thanks to the experience he gained last season, Dombrowski is full of confidence heading into the 2010 season. “It feels great, I’m having a great time out there right now – probably the most fun I’ve ever had playing football,” Dombrowski said. “Playing last year was kind of like a fresh feeling for me – you kind of have to go into like a survival mode because you’re learning as you go. This year I feel like I have a little bit of experience under my belt which I think is really helping me.” For advertising information call: (858) 537.2280

my life, but I had this idea I could save my money and go to Hollywood and become a movie star.” She smiled. “It seemed perfectly simple. I imagine there were a lot of little girls in Georgia with the same crazy idea. I went to Columbus and got a job as an inspector for the Archer Hosiery Co. But I could hardly support myself; I was a kid, I didn’t know the first thing about handling money. I lived all alone in a rooming house. My parents were trying to make me come back home. “It seemed that if I did go back, I’d never get away again. I got a job as a waitress and met this marine who came into the restaurant all the time. We got the bright idea we ought to get married. See, in Georgia, after you got married your parents lost their legal hold on you.” She shook her head slowly. “What a crazy thing to do. I was scared to death, and so was he. The marriage was annulled after 24 hours, and I went back home. I never saw him again. I heard once that he was in Florida, but I don’t know for sure. “Anyway, things were still bad at home, and so finally I really did get married. I was 15, and I married this shoe salesman from Columbus. His sister worked with me at the hosiery mill. Can you imagine a kid of 15 getting married? It lasted six months, and then I just left one day. I still had it in my mind to go to Hollywood. I couldn’t get it out of my system.” When she arrived in Hollywood, her name was still Annie B. Banks, and she had $600 in savings in a purse which she held with both hands so that the purse-snatchers, said to be legion in the big city, would not snatch it away from her. “I was pretty, and already I had a good figure, but I must have looked like the original little country girl come to Hollywood,” Tempest said smiling. “What a sight I must have been.” She went to work as a carhop at Simon’s Drive-In until a job as a cocktail waitress opened up. She lied about her age, piled her hair on top of her head and went to work. “One day a man in the lounge told me I ought to go into show business,”’ she said. Well, that was exactly what I thought, but I was as far away from getting anywhere in Hollywood as I had been in Georgia. I asked him if he had

After three weeks, Tempest was offered a raise to $60 if she would strip. “That wasn’t what I had in mind,” Tempest said. “I never started out to be in burlesque; I never planned it that way. Still, I needed the money. I remember going on stage for the first time, with Lillian in the wings whispering instructions. “The instant the spotlight hit, my gown fell off.

So that was when I learned the basic rule in this business: No matter what happens, keep moving.” A week later, Lillian Hunt told Annie B. Banks that she needed a stage name. Annie B. Banks wouldn’t do. “I asked her if she had any suggestions. She said, what about Tempest Storm? I asked her if she had any other suggestions. Well, she said, what about Sunny Day? Well, I said, I guess it might as well be Tempest Storm.” That was in 1952, when she was 17. Six months later, she engineered the publicity stunt that was to make her famous. “A bunch of Hollywood stars were holding something called the Mickey Awards.

IS JAMES BOND DEAD? “RELAX, DARLING, I am on top of the situation.” That was Sean Connery, in “Diamonds Are Forever.” (I believe the situation he was “on top of” was Jill St. John.)

SEVERAL MONTHS ago, we printed news about the delay on “Bond 23” the latest 007 movie starring Daniel Craig, who is the sizzling 21st-century re-invention of James Bond. MGM was bankrupt and waiting for financial salvation. It didn’t seem possible, I wrote, that the greatest of all studios could possibly remain in such dire straits or that the most successful movie franchise in history could be ... history. Alas, it seems all the bad news remains very bad indeed. Entertainment Weekly has put Daniel Craig on its current cover, in character as Bond, in his tuxedo. And that might be the final image on the cover of a magazine with Craig as Bond. The story inside is dismal. MGM still hasn’t found a buyer (Louis B. Mayer and Irving Thalberg must be spinning!) and “Bond 23” has been put on an indefinite hold. As EW points out, the last time the Bond franchise was put on hold, it took six years to revive it -- with Pierce Brosnan. And some fear this hiatus

might run a similar course. But with audience attention spans shorter than ever, with CGI and 3-D increasingly the lure, will there be a place for a recognizable James Bond in the future? Would Daniel Craig, who is now 42, want to return to the role when he’s pushing 50? “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace” took in -- are you ready? -- $1 billion dollars worldwide. But an actor goes where the work is, and several years from now, Craig might be frying other fish, perhaps even fish more tasty than 007. And let’s face it, even Sean Connery was not very convincing as Bond, as he aged. Still, there’s this possibility -- if Bond is away for a long time, and then has to be reinvented again from scratch, there’s always the chance of a total reinvention; an African-American Bond, a gay Bond, even -- a female Bond?! (OK, the latter would be a miraculous stretch, but, in the movies anything is possible -- after all, there’s always Angelina Jolie.) Still, I hope MGM sorts itself out

Page 24 September 1, 2010 THE MILITARY PRESS

and “Bond 23” gets back on track with Daniel Craig. He has certainly put his own sexy, steely-eyed, visceral stamp on Ian Fleming’s immortal character. I AM not at all surprised that Ellen DeGeneres has left her position as a judge on “American Idol,” backstage personality clashes notwithstanding. I never thought Ellen would last. The hallmark of her comedy style is gentle and self-deprecating. I could not see her offering even gentle criticism of contestants vying to become the next “Idol.” And indeed, she admitted in leaving that that was the reason -- she just couldn’t bring herself, week after week, to offer negativity. Ellen loves music and knows music, but I don’t think she wants to put anything out there that isn’t positive. Also, and this is just my opinion, too many of these young people aren’t doing what I call singing anyway. It’s a lot of reaching for and fooling around with notes to make impressively loud

sounds, with little feeling for lyrics. Nobody just sings. Today’s music style -- especially the typical “Idol” sound -- ensures that Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne and other great artists who knew the power of the lyric, would never make it on “AI.” GOOD NEWS on CNN over the weekend. I saw a report on a young man named Eric Richardson who has had great success with a website called blogdowntown Weekly. This is a site that tells all that’s going on in downtown Los Angeles. Now, Eric has decided to put his blog into print and turn it into a magazine! He said that the reading experience remains valuable and people still want to pick something up and hold it -- the tactile experience. The interviewer seemed skeptical and pointed out how everything is online, and how vastly endangered are magazines, newspapers and even print books.


ENTERTAINMENT with Liz Smith I MP Sean Connery (obviously!)

George Lazenby

Eric was steadfast; he thinks his magazine will be a success and he believes reading from a source you don’t have to “call up” will endure. Good luck, Eric Richardson! HERE’S a story of just where a lot of young people are, culturally. Montana Fishburne, the daughter of the respected actor Laurence Fishburne, has made a porn movie. Is she desperate, disowned by her family, a drug addict who doesn’t know what she is doing? No. (Although there was an arrest for prostitution last year.) She wants to be famous. She wants to “get her career going.” And she was inspired in this foolishness by none other than Kim Kardashian, one of the famous-forbeing famous Kardashian sisters! Uhhh ... the difference is, Kim reportedly made her tape as a “private” little something with an ex-boyfriend. Then it was “leaked” -- oops! Kim then became famous. Just as Paris Hilton’s profile was heightened by her tape, and

then there’s always the Pam Anderson/ Tommy Lee epic. Obviously, Miss Fishburne is a troubled young lady, but the idea behind her quest for “fame” is more or less what many young people believe. Getting on reality shows, behaving atrociously, drinking, barfing, undressing -performing in sex tapes, or posting nude pictures online where they will live and be circulated forever. Mistresses now become newspaper columnists. More than ever women throw themselves into bed with famous men so they can then get pregnant, tape them, weep when the famous man is through with them. Then they all hire Gloria Allred. I do not think even Andy Warhol, who predicted everybody would be “famous for 15 minutes” and who had an appreciation of the sordid, would be amused at what passes for cultural inspiration these days.

When football star Pat Tillman was killed in Afghanistan in 2004, he was hailed by the Bush administration as a hero who died in combat. Weeks later, a more complicated story emerged, after his family challenged the administration’s version of events. Now a documentary, The Tillman Story, chronicles the uncovering of what it suggests is a cover-up. Tillman, an all-star defensive back with the Arizona Cardinals, had walked away from a multimillion-dollar contract to enlist in the Army just a few months after the World Trade Center came down. He was perhaps the most famous enlisted man in the armed services, and he was lionized when news came two years later that he’d been killed in an ambush by the Taliban. His actions, said military sources, had saved his comrades. The media drumbeat was insistent. Tillman had ordered his men up a hill to attack, they reported; he’d been heard issuing commands to take the fight to the enemy. None of this, The Tillman Story says, was true. An investigation eventually showed that Tillman died by friendly fire, and at least one of his fellow soldiers says there were no enemy forces present. Tillman’s family says they learned weeks later that the inspiring story the military had circulated was a fabrication, based on reports the government knew to be false. The film shows a paper trail — including a leaked top-secret document known as a P4 Memo, sent to the White House by Gen. Stanley McChrystal — that seems to trace that knowledge of falsehood high into the Bush administration. A Martyr For The Cause: On an Army form, Tillman had specifically declined the option of a military funeral, aware that his celebrity might make it easy for the Army to turn his death into a propaganda tool. That memo, says Tillman’s mother, is evidence that the government knew early on what the family came to believe later — that the official story was a lie. Meanwhile, Tillman’s wife, Marie, was resisting pressure to turn the family’s private funeral into an occasion for patriotic grandstanding and full military honors. Director Amir Bar-Lev finds a riveting detective story here — how the family forced an Army investigation and then forced Congress to investigate that investigation, each time with additional embarrassing admissions from public officials. The Tillman Story is ferocious filmmaking, but it wouldn’t have half the force it does if the director didn’t also get at the complicated man Pat Tillman was — the football star who volunteered to serve in a war he later doubted the logic for; the avowed atheist who read the Book of Mormon. As you get a sense of Tillman the man, you better understand his family’s fury at the flag-waving being done in his name. And when the director finally takes his camera to the rocky, barren valley where Tillman died and re-creates how the military now says it happened, all hope of clarity evaporates. The notion of an accidental shooting in battle conjures up images of murky sightlines, stray shots coming out of nowhere. But when you see the actual terrain — where Tillman was standing, where his comrades were — if it’s hard to say how the tragedy happened, it’s harder to imagine it happening the way they say. You emerge from The Tillman Story feeling a little of what the Tillman family must: that the whole truth about his death hasn’t yet been told, and may never be.

A blonde was sitting down in a bar one day next to a red-head. Both of them were sitting there having a good time and then the news turned on. The woman reporter shouted out “This just in! A man is at the edge of a cliff attempting to jump!”. Then the red-head leans over to the blonde and whispers, “I bet you $50 that the man’s gonna jump!” The blonde responds back “That’s a bet you have there!”. So, both of the woman stared at the news waiting to know whats gonna happen. Then, the man jumps! The blonde turns around to the red-head and hands her the $50. The red-head feeling guilty said “I cant take that there money. I saw the news earlier this mornin’, i knew he was

gonna jump off that there cliff.” And the blonde says “Well, i did too! But i never would have thought that the man would do it again

Blonde Bar A blind man and his guide dog enter a bar and find their way to a barstool. After ordering a drink, and sitting there for a while, the blind guy yells to the bartender, “Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke ?” The bar immediately becomes absolutely quiet. In a husky, deep voice, the woman next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, you should know something.The bartender is blonde, the bouncer is blonde, and I’m a 6’ tall, 200 lb.blonde with a black belt in karate. What’s more, the woman sitting next to me is blonde and she’s a weight lifter. The lady to your right is a blonde, and she’s a wrestler. Think about it seriously, Mister. You still wanna tell that joke?” The blind guy says, “Nah, not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”

Blonde And Her Job Interview A Blonde airhead goes for a job interview in an office. The interviewer starts with the basics. “So, Miss, can you tell us your age, please?” The blonde counts carefully on her fingers for half a minute before replying “Ehhhh... 22!” The interviewer tries another straightforward one to break the ice. “And can you tell us your height, please?” The young lady stands up and produces a measuring tape from her handbag. She then traps one end under her foot and extends the tape to the top of her head. She checks the measurement and announces “Five foot two!” This isn’t looking good so the interviewer goes for the real basics; something the interviewee won’t have to count, measure, or lookup.”Just to confirm for our records, your name please?” The airhead bobs her head from side to side for about ten seconds, mouthing something silently to herself, before replying “MANDY!”

The interviewer is completely baffled at this stage, so he asks “What in the world were you doing when I asked you your name?” “Ohhhh, that!” replies the airhead,”I was just running through that song - ‘Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear...’

Single woman A woman walks into a supermarket and buys: 1 bar of soap 1 toothbrush 1 tube of toothpaste 1 loaf of bread 1 pint of milk 1 single serving of cereal 1 single serving frozen dinner 1 can of Soup For One 1 16oz can of Miller Lite The guy at the checkout looks at her and says, “Single, are you?” The woman smiles sweetly and replies, “How did you guess?” He replies, “Because you’re ugly.”

left as he stumbles down the aisle. The copilot is using a guide dog. Both have their eyes covered with sunglasses. At first, the passengers do not react thinking that it must be some sort of practical joke. After a few minutes though, the engines start revving, and the airplane begins moving down the runway. The passengers look at each other with some uneasiness. They start whispering among themselves and look desperately to the stewardesses for reassurance. Yet, the plane starts accelerating rapidly, and people begin panicking. Some passengers are praying, and as the plane gets closer and closer to the end of the runway, the voices are becoming more and more hysterical. When the plane has less than twenty feet of runway left, there is a sudden change in the pitch of the shouts as everyone screams at once. At the very last moment, the plane lifts off and is airborne. Up in the cockpit, the copilot breathes a sigh of relief and tells the pilot: “You know, one of these days the passengers aren’t going to scream, and we aren’t going to know when to take off!”

Blonde One Liners Did you hear about the blonde that put lipstick on her forehead so she could make up her mind? Did you hear that they found another “Heaven Gates” cult member? Yea...it was a blonde and she was under the sink looking for the comet!

Mommy make over for the military mom Having children and being a mom is a blessing. Being a mother can be a tough job and it can be tough on your body. Unfortunately with childbearing and breast-feeding comes unwanted changes on your body like stretch marks, loose skin, saggy breasts, and weight gain. It is essential for a mother to take good care of her family as well as herself. Self-confidence is key when it comes to being a mom. Each mommy makeover is unique and costomized to benefit each individual woman’s needs. Mommy makeovers are designed to counteract the physical effects of childbearing and nursing or breastfeeding. Every makeover is different and may require multiple procedures to achieve the best results possible. A mommy makeover may include procedures such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast augmentation, breast lift (mastopexy), breast reduction, and / or liposuction surgery. Breast Augmentation is performed to increase the size and fullness of the breast. Women whose breasts are disproportionately small, or whose breasts have sagged or “deflated” after childbirth, or who have uneven shape or size breasts, are candidates for the procedure. Abdominoplasty, also known as the “tummy tuck,” is an operation performed to remove excess fatty tissue and skin folds in the mid and lower abdominal region and to tighten up the abdominal wall muscles. When women have had children, the lining of the abdominal muscles can spread and the abdomen can develop a bulge.

operation involves rearranging the breast tissue, shifting the nipple position and increasing the breast firmness by tightening the skin. Modern innovations in breast lift techniques include limited incision techniques and nipple sensation sparing techniques. Liposuction surgery has now become the most commonly performed operation in Plastic Surgery. This procedure is used to improve your figure in either one specific area, or in several areas. Modern liposculpture is a both a scientific procedure and an artistic one, incorporating a concern for the patient’s well-being and health during and after surgery with a genuine artistic sculpting of tissues.

HEALTH & FITNESS By J.C. Anderson I MP

F-MAX

A different kind of fitness club

F-Max Fitness is a “MUST GO” fitness club to check out. If you want results, this is the place. If you have a stubborn area that no workout has been able to resolve, the top notch trainers at F-Max can create a precise program that will take care of it. Whether it is a nutritional issue or specific training, just go in and let them make a plan you can work with. Instead of meeting for coffee or cocktails girls, co-op the babysitting and join up for a “Ride and Glide” high intensity workout with Dana, the Co-owner. It is fun, it burns calories fast, and you leave with an endorphin buzz better than the high calorie Mohitoes and appetizers you would have been having. MP: If a Military person is in good shape but has that one problem area, or issue, what would you do for them? DC: We have trainers here that can make boot camp workouts seem easy. So we are prepared for the already fit person. However, well built and strong men usually have great hard bodies they want to maintain with one glaring issue, lack of flexibility. We have to get those muscles moving more smoothly. Strength and flexibility are the perfect combination. So that is one goal we would work on. Rehabilitation is also something we can help with. Slow and steady, that is what I tell our clients. If a client can bring in what they have been doing with a physical therapist, we will keep that in mind when we design and add to their program. Your body should flow and move at a natural pace.

MP: If you could give one piece of advice to everyone, what would it be? DC: Every client has their own physical fitness desire to achieve and that is our job and our pleasure. We can make those goals work, if the client is willing to make the commitment. Everyone can use the guidance, be challenged and being accountable to a program keeps them on track. MP: So accountability is important. DC: Absolutely, it makes all the difference. MP: What would you do for retired military person with a few years on their muscles and joints. They want to maintain or renew their military fitness body. DC: Everyone that signs up gets a full fitness assessment. Then we make sure we match the trainer to client so that the client gets the absolutely best

Page 36 September 1, 2010 THE MILITARY PRESS

possible match to reach their goals. Good communication between trainer and client is key. MP: Now the bottom-line question for most of us. What is the cost of your program and do you have to sign up on an auto deduct for a membership? DC: We have great prices and packages. We also give a 15% military discount on any of our packages. We do not do the auto pay thing, another big gym culture. There are no tricks or gimmicks, just an atmosphere where our clients can feel like family and have the accountability to succeed. MP: How many trainers do you have? DC: We have six, all Nationally Certified, including myself and my husband Donato. MP: Is there a difference in certifications?

DC: Yes, there are four national certifications. However some gyms, larger gyms, may certify in house, but we don’t feel that is adequate training. It is important to make sure that your trainer is Nationally Certified. That requires a great deal more time and knowledge of more than just anatomy. MP: Like the difference in a licensed Massage Therapist and spa certification. DC: Yes. MP: You, personally, have quite a bit of education in addition to your National Certification. DC: Yes, I have a B.A. in Psychology


HEALTH & FITNESS I MP my care over. They even got me going to a massage therapist twice a week to help my overall mobility. You have to make adjustments as you get older. To tell you the truth it was a bit scary at first, and stressful. DC: Slow and steady wins the race. MP: Phil is a 50 something, very fit man who feels quite at home here in this two room gym. He says he works out with fit young men and women along with well overweight women who are, day by day, workout by workout, losing pounds. Phil told me one woman has lost nearly 100 pounds so far. MP: I see you have Yoga as well. DC: We have Iyengar Yoga which is controlled and focused. It is appropriate for all levels. It is part of our overall fitness program here.

The infamous Phil on his way towards a new image and an M.A. in Nutrition. So I try to work with my clients on their diets as well as their physical exercise. MP: Tell me about your unique Ride and Glide Gravity Training System. DC: The Ride and Glide, Gravity Training System is my own registered workout system. It is 50 minutes of a high intensity workout, going back and forth from the spinning of Schwinn bikes and the Gravity Training Machine built by EFI. MP: Did you design the equipment as well? DC: No. EFI builds the machine. They are the company that Chuck Norris and Christie Brinkley used to advertise their machines from. MP: These machines look quite expensive. How did you get started? DC: I went to a fitness show and saw these machines being demonstrated. I absolutely had to have one. I couldn’t afford it, but I knew that it’s benefits were exceptional, so I took the chance. Then a client bought a second one for

me, and that was followed by an angel investor that bought the rest for me. We have an arrangement, she has a lifetime of training and I have my dream. MP: Besides being married you share a dream with Donato, which is manifested in this fantastic F-Max Fitness. What was his inspiration? DC: Donato came from New Jersey with every thing he owned, all the fitness equipment he had been collecting, in a trailer, leaving a lucrative career behind and followed his dream. He looked for a location and found this great Point Loma location. He already had F-Max up and running and I joined him here. MP: This sounds like a fitness family in here, everyone knows and encourages everyone else. Phil, a client: Yes, I’m here nearly every day. This is how I went through my mid-life crisis. I was in rehab after a serious knee surgery and 30 pounds overweight, which was slowing down the recovery process even more. I came in here and Dana and Donato just took

So there it is. A fantastic gym, highly educated and dedicated trainers, a small but efficient space, personal, a neighborhood gym for everyone. Owners Donato and Dana are exceptional people who will work with you to meet your goals. There is amazing energy in both the location and the people. Check out their website, and contact them at: F-Maxfitness.com for class times, prices and pictures of the studio. You can see Dana’s Ride and Glide class in action.

ENTERTAINMENT By Zack O’Malley Greenburg, Forbes.com I MP

Four years ago Jay-Z issued a lyrical taunt to his fellow rappers: “What you call money, I pay more in taxes.” Turns out his line was more than just a boast. Jay-Z pulled in $63 million over the past 12 months, earning him his second straight hip-hop cash crown. His income level places him in the 35% tax bracket, which means he’ll pay Uncle Sam about $22 million this year -- a sum greater than the total earnings of any other rap star besides second-ranked Diddy. “Jay-Z is in a league of his own right now,” says Ryan Schinman, chief of Platinum Rye, the country’s largest buyer of music and talent for corporations. “There are very few artists of any genre, not just hiphop, who’ve created such brands for themselves.” The top 20 earners on this year’s Cash Kings list racked up about $300 million in earnings, an average of $15 million per artist. Remarkably, the total is roughly the same as last year, despite a troubled economy and a music industry thrown into flux by new technology. “There aren’t many artists selling 250,000 albums in the opening week, and that used to happen all the time,” says entertainment attorney Donald David. “The rise of iTunes means people don’t have to buy whole album ... and that has changed the business dramatically.” Jay-Z and Diddy are two artists who’ve taken the changes in stride. In addition to releasing an album and launching a worldwide tour (average gross: more than $1 million per show), Jay-Z co-owns the 40/40 nightclub chain and has a stake in the NBA’s

World Cup soccer ad campaign for Pepsi, and Kon Live, his Interscopebacked imprint that’s home to Lady Gaga and others. Fourth on the list is Lil Wayne, who managed to pull in $20 million from his new album, Rebirth, and heavy touring before the start of his one-year jail stint in March for weapons charges. Ludacris ranks sixth with $16 million, a total fueled by movie roles and a new cognac line, Conjure. “There’s a lot of cross-branding and cross-marketing that’s going on these days,” notes Troy Marshall, vice president of promotions at Interscope Records. Along with touring, he says, “those are very important components for artists as far as spreading the message of their music and spreading

the message of their brand.” Kanye West’s earnings fell from $25 million last year to $12 million this year in the wake of his highly publicized outburst during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 Video Music Awards. With a

new album and world tour in the offing, he should be back toward the top of next year’s list along with 50 Cent, who took a break from touring and recording to concentrate on film roles over the past year, earning $8 million, a relatively paltry total for the 2008 Cash King. Eleventh-ranked Drake is the

highest-earning newcomer on the list. He banked $9 million over the past 12 months, thanks to a new record deal, an advertising pact with Sprite, and an agreement with Virgin America that

plasters his likeness onto the sides of airplanes. Another good decision: recruiting Lil Wayne and Jay-Z to appear on his debut album, Thank Me Later, which sold 447,000 copies in its first week. Though Jay-Z earned more than Lil Wayne, Drake, Kanye West, and 50 Cent combined, he’s not even the richest musician in his own home -- that honor goes to his wife, Beyonce, who raked in $87 million over the past 12 months. Methodology: The Forbes Hip-Hop

Cash Kings list includes male recording artists whose work is primarily classified as hip-hop or rap. Earnings estimates, which include income from record sales, digital downloads, touring, films, TV shows, endorsements, books, and other entertainment ventures, are calculated between June 2009 and June 2010. Management, attorney, and agent fees are not deducted. In order to determine our list, we interviewed numerous sources within the music industry, including lawyers, media buyers, record label executives, and many of the artists themselves. We also conducted research via Billboard, Pollstar, Nielsen SoundScan, and the Recording Industry Association of America, among other sources.

$340,520* That was Patricia Neal’s startling response to Raymond Massey’s proposal of marriage in that fabulously terrible 1949 movie “The Fountainhead,” based on Ayn Rand’s massive and often incomprehensible novel. This was only Miss Neal’s second film -- after winning a Tony Award on Broadway for “Another Part of the Forest.” Her flamboyant, eye-popping, nostril-flaring performance in “The Fountainhead” might have ended another person’s career right then, but Miss Neal was no ordinary actress. She was gorgeous, dramatic, unusual and sexy. Gary Cooper, her co-star in “The Fountainhead” certainly thought so. Certain lurid scenes in the film -- where she flays him with her riding crop, or when he bursts into her bedroom and all but rapes her -- probably heightened what was an attraction that would lead to an affair. Cooper was very much married so their off-screen love affair would last only two years. Neal aborted their baby, as there were no celebrity children born out of wedlock in 1949 without serious consequences. THE GREAT Patricia Neal died last wee. All the tributes immediately spoke of her courage, the tragic death of her

daughter, the devastating injury of her son, her strokes and her amazing battle to regain her life and her career. Her valiant fight deserves to be honored. But along the way of her many struggles -- including losing her adored husband, writer Roald Dahl to her best friend -the juicy Pat Neal of her early films got lost. She had an electric, slightly overthe-top quality -- something a little mad in those enormous eyes, and something a little spine tingling in that low, scratchy voice. She lifted “The Day the Earth Stood Still” into more than mere science fiction, even when talking to a robot -“klaatu, barada, nikto!” And she was memorable as Andy Griffith’s conflicted publicist in “A Face in the Crowd.” PAT NEAL was never big on selfpity, and she was one of the most marvelously candid actors in the business. She was merry and wise, full of humor about herself and others. (Her 1988 autobiography, “As I Am,” was a wonderful reflection of her spirit.) The strokes left her with a slight speech impediment. She would come down on certain words with an almost British accent, a rather wry sound that became part of her latter-day style. It was charming.

Crazee Burger, on 30th. Street off El Cajon Boulevard in North Park, is a great burger and beer bar. Lots to choose from but I’d recommend their smoked sausage sandwich and any of the beers on tap during their extensive happy hour. Check both places out at www.manhattanoflajolla.com and www.crazeeburger. com. Each is worth a special trip.

The Prado at Balboa Park - The Prado, another of the Cohn Group Restaurants, presents classic dining in the House of Hospitality, located in the middle of San Diego’s crown jewel, Balboa Park. We started by sharing a baby iceberg wedge with Maytag blue cheese dressing and seared Kobe beef carpaccio. Our second course was grilled pork flat iron and an oven roasted boneless half chicken. Dessert was a steamed blackberry cake and a duo of Belgian chocolate. It’s a long time San Diego favorite and perfect for pre-theater dining at the Old Globe Theater. Call 1-619-557-9441 or go to www.pradobalboa.com for information. Avenue 5 Restaurant & Bar – Another outstanding $30 choice. I had a sneak preview of their prixe-fixe menu at this terrific bistro located in Bankers Hill. It features American cuisine with a French influence.

Our starters that evening were a vodka cured beef tenderloin carpaccio and salmon tartar; both innovative and delicious. The main course was vegetarian herb gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and rosemary white prawns with lemon risotto. We enjoyed desserts of honey flower gelato and pistachio profiteroles. This place offers great ambience, an extensive wine list, picture perfect presentations and quality service. A steal at $30. For reservations call 1-619-542-0394.

TREETOP

That’s Joan Collins as a troubled movie queen in the frightening and funny “Fetish,” a 25-minute short, directed by Matthew Pellowski, written by and costarring Charles Casillo. (Mr. Casillo -author of a number of nifty books and the screenwriter and star of last year’s indie “Let Me Die Quietly” -- plays a TV talk show host, who evinces an ominous interest in Collins. He is unctuous and bone chilling.) The little movie was screened earlier this week at the New Stages Theater on West 49th Street. It attracted quite a crowd of Casillo, Pellowski and, of course, Joan Collins fans. This effort has already won Joan a best actress nomination at the New York City International Film Festival. The event happens tonight, but Joan is in Europe and cannot attend. She did, however, tape an acceptance speech,

‘FETISH’

GL AS

I COULD lie and say this is a vitamin pill, but actually it’s a Valium. And don’t be alarmed I’m taking it with alcohol; it just makes me more fabulous!”

Dexter, and those great big shoulder pads.) Casillo’s witty script also provides Joan with one emotional scene that certainly echoes her frustrations -“Can’t they see? Can’t they see? I am a real actress!” Matt Pellowski, who is only 31 years old, admits he was intimidated by the prospect of working with Joan, but wisely didn’t show it. He says, “She was totally on board, invested in the work, willing to take chances, was not concerned about her looks, and open to ideas. To say I was pleased and more than a little surprised would be an understatement.” Joan even gamely filmed a scene on a freezing cold balcony, with some dangerous wiring strewn about, without complaint. (And our Joanie hates to be cold or wet or have physical confrontations. Her aversions were an ordeal for her during her TV reign, which always featured her being thrown into pools or mud pits, and battling it out with the Amazonian Linda Evans.) MR. PELLOWSKI and Mr. Casillo want to work with Joan again. “She’s the ultimate trooper,” says Charles, “and now I know, the ultimate actress.” Don’t miss it. MEG RYAN has been trying to sell her Beverly Hills home for two years; she’d rather spend her time in Martha’s Vineyard. There have been no takers. Not at $19.5 million. Not at $14.2 million. (The house has six bedrooms, seven baths and a pool.)

‘Dragon Tattoo’

Casting raises questions: Will violent, sexy actioner click with U.S. audiences?

There is a lot riding on the shoulders of Rooney Mara, the 25-year-old American thesp who won the title role in Columbia Pictures’ “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” It’s a big commitment: The casting covers a trio of high-profile pictures. In addition, readers of the three books -- published in 44 countries and selling more than 40 million copies worldwide to date -- have a clear picture of the iconic savant hacker Lisbeth Salander. Sony won’t comment on the budget for the pics, but it appears that the studio, director David Fincher and producer Scott Rudin aren’t thinking cheap. According to insiders, scribe Steve Zaillian’s deal for the second pic is said to be recordbreaking. After a long search, Columbia wasn’t convinced Mara was perfect casting, but Fincher prevailed in a debate that was waged through this weekend. Fincher, who directed her in the studio’s upcoming “The Social Network,” convinced the top execs. (Mara also appeared in this year’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”) Another hurdle for the studio is the success of the trio of Swedish-language

film adaptations. That trio has grossed $202.9 million worldwide so far. After the other two bowed in the U.S. this year, “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest” launches Oct. 15. Since overseas B.O. accounts for the majority of a film’s B.O., the worldwide tallies are all-important, but there’s little precedent for anticipating reaction to English-language remakes. There’s also the question of the American appetite for a dark property that will necessitate a hard R rating for its key scenes of rape, sadism and murder. Insiders say a top Col exec twice passed on the property when it was brought to the studio by helmer Marc Forster. It wasn’t until Sony chairman Michael Lynton read the books that he insisted on the studio making the pics with Rudin producing. Daniel Craig co-stars in the three-picture adaptation of the late Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, with Robin Wright co-starring and Stellan Skarsgard cast in a supporting role in the first installment. The studio is also in talks with Max van Sydow to play the key role of Henrik Vanger. Columbia mulled a number of name actresses for the role of Salander, including Natalie Portman, who refused to test for Fincher, and Kristen Stewart, who worked with Fincher as a child in “Panic Room.” Ultimately, Mara -- great-granddaughter of Pittsburgh Steelers founder Art Rooney Sr. and New York Giants founder Tim Mara as well as sister of “Brokeback Mountain” thesp Kate Mara -- landed the role. Fincher is a final-cut director whose work includes serial killer pic “Zodiac,” which was critically acclaimed but topped out at $33 million domestically, and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which was his highest-grossing pic with $127 million. “Dragon Tattoo,” which begins shooting next month in Sweden, is set to bow worldwide Dec. 21, 2011.

bestselling books, Shaun Considine. The author of “Mad as Hell: The Life and Work of Paddy Chayefsky” avers: “Paddy fell madly in love with Kim and went so far as to ask his wife for a divorce. His wife, Susan, told him not to be silly, that he was enamored by a movie star and that the infatuation would be over when the movie was finished.” And yes, this was so. But the writer and the actress remained close friends until the day he died. Mr. Considine also avers that

“WHEN YOU work with a secure director -- people like Alfred Hitchcock or Otto Preminger or Richard Quine -they want you to be good. They want it for the good of the film. Insecure directors, perhaps because they are insecure, are not so helpful.” That was Kim Novak talking about her life as a film star. Space prevented me from using everything she said in our story last week on the enduring movie queen. (She is promoting a deluxe new Kim Novak DVD set.) I was startled to hear that Kim got on with the notoriously difficult Otto Preminger, and she insisted Alfred Hitchcock, who often drove his actors insane with his apparent lack of interest, was “wonderful.” DURING OUR chat, Kim mentioned what a “good friend” the writer Paddy Chayefsky had been. He wrote the play “Middle of the Night” and the screenplay for the movie version in which Kim starred, along with Fredric March. She said she and Paddy had plans to do a Broadway play together. She admitted, with considerable feeling, “I miss him very much.” Now comes a P.S. from our great movie historian and author of numerous

Paddy was a good friend of Elizabeth Taylor’s. Such good friends that Taylor wanted him to write the screenplay for “Cleopatra.” She begged producer Walter Wanger to hire Paddy, but the studio preferred Joe Mankiewicz, who had worked successfully with Taylor on “Suddenly, Last Summer.” They felt Mank “knew” Taylor, and could write for her, accordingly. It would be interesting to speculate on how the earthbound Paddy, who also “knew” her, would have written an epic of antiquity. (“Marty” goes to Egypt?) MARC CHERRY, the creator of “Desperate Housewives” is reportedly mulling a “reality-type show-within-ashow” concept that will reveal “aspects of the housewives we’ve never seen before.”

No, it won’t be backstage with the stars, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria, but a more improvisational venture, shot on video, to give it a “reality TV look.” The actresses will still be in character, but voicing their own feelings about the characters.

Long-distance runner Kara Goucher, whose glamour has led to the tag, “the Julia Roberts of running” is expecting her first child, a boy, next month. (She is really infanticipating!)

a Rolls-Royce and was given an award by Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The citation read: For the biggest props in Hollywood.” She smiled: “Well, publicity is the key in this business. You have to be realistic. I made a lot of front pages, and that was the break I needed. Everybody needs one break.” In 1956, she signed a 10-year contract at $100,000 a year with the Bryan-Engels burlesque chain, becoming the highest paid stripper in the business. She still is (her current guarantee is $3,000 a week), but she reigns over a dying industry. Chicago, once a thriving burlesque center, now has only one active theater, the Town Burlesque at Armitage and Clark. “I was just about the last big star the burlesque industry was able to produce before it started folding up,” Tempest said. “Now there’s no reason for a girl to get into the business. All she’ll get is a lot of grief. “Still I can’t see why I should quit while I’m making so much money. I’m not a relic, after all. That’s another thing. Burlesque has been dying for so long that people somehow get the idea I’m 70 years old and their grandfathers saw me. I came into the industry very late. I’m not quite a contemporary of Gypsy Rose Lee, for heaven’s sake.” For the headliners like Tempest, a large audience remains. The Town, which lost money steadily during a 10 month try at exhibiting serious foreign films, is thriving on a policy of skin flicks and big-name strippers. Tempest’s engagement, which ended Wednesday, was the most lucrative in the theater’s history. And one by one, the handful of other well-known strippers will come to the Town: Anne Howe (the current attraction), Babette Bardot, Sintana, Kelly Barton, a few others. The audiences are mostly men since there are no longer comedians and singers that the ladies can claim they REALLY came to see. “They tried full-scale burlesque in New York a year ago: comedians, three chorus lines, the works,” Tempest said. “But it flopped and now they’re back to strippers. “What I object to is the dishonesty and cheapening that goes on. The thing that killed the family audience for burlesque, in my opinion, was when some strippers began ‘flashing’ - that’s burlesque lingo for showing everything. Not only is that unpleasant, but it’s unnecessary. The secret to a good striptease is to leave

as much as possible to the imagination. “No matter what men may think, they don’t actually want to see a performer just come out and take off her clothes. There’s got to be communication, there’s got to be contact. In my act, although I eventually do get down to the legal minimum, I actually put on more clothes than I take off. There’s some psychology in this. A performer who can communicate a feeling of modesty is sexier than one who just strips. “And then there’s the dishonesty. For example, my measurements are 40-22-34, and nobody’s ever accused me of exaggerating. But I was playing a theater in Florida, and they had a big banner in front of the theater advertising 48-22-36. Good Lord, can you imagine? I exercise and diet to stay in shape, and then some idiot theater manager comes along and gives me eight extra inches.” What she plans to do, she said, is keep working while the pay is good, and then retire. She was married again in 1959, to singer Herb Jeffries, and they have a 5-year-old daughter. “Herb and I think maybe we’ll settle in Honolulu. We both work about six months a year, and travel with each other a good deal so that we’re never apart more than a few weeks. We plan to settle down and lead a quiet sort of life. And basically, I guess, I’m happy

with the way things turned out. I went into burlesque, which I never planned on, but at least I did make it to the top. “Not bad for a ninth-grade dropout, right?” She smiled. “That’s what I can’t understand about teenagers today. I worked from the time I was 13; I paid my own way. Now you see these kids, they’re lazy, they won’t work. I can’t act that way. All my life, I’ve worked like crazy, maybe because I remember where I started from. And I did make it. I made it out of Georgia and I did become a star, although maybe not exactly the way I expected. The customers may not come to see me act, but they’re there.” So what do the customers come for? “I guess just to see a sex symbol,” Tempest said. “Most people figure strippers are dumb broads; all they have is a body. Ever since I’ve started, that’s the kind of attitude people have had toward me. “That’s why Marilyn Monroe invented the dumb blond - to sort of satirize what everybody thought about her anyway. Then, when she played the dumb blond, everybody could see she was really intelligent. It was funny. That’s how she overcame the sex symbol thing.” How have you overcome it? Tempest put her tongue in her cheek. “I haven’t tried yet,” she said.

ON THE COVER

Jessica Alba in Machete Who needs limos? Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin and director Robert Rodriguez were among those arriving at the “Machete” premiere Wednesday in custom lowriders, trading Town Car black for shades of silver, orange and deep purple. Star Danny Trejo took it a step further, rolling in solo on a custom chopper, flames included. The “Machete” red carpet was rolled out in front of the Orpheum Theatre, the downtown L.A. venue where producer Quentin Tarantino’s “Grindhouse,” also directed by Robert Rodriguez, premiered in 2007. Lindsay Lohan, who has a small part in the film, didn’t make the premiere -- but did enjoy her own cool ride in the wee hours Thursday. JESSICA ALBA and director ROBERT RODRIGUEZ used a screening of MACHETE on Wednesday, August 25th to send well-wishes to troubled actress LINDSAY LOHAN and praise her performance in the new movie. Lohan was forced to miss the special showing in Los Angeles, which took place just one day after she was discharged from a rehab clinic at the UCLA Medical Center. Filmmaker Rodriguez took the opportunity to rave about Lohan, insisting he can’t wait for audiences to see her on the big screen again. He told MTV.com, “She’s awesome in the movie. That’s what they’ll see: the actress behind all that paparazzi nonsense that follows her and won’t leave her alone. They’ll get to see her and say, ‘Oh, that’s why we follow her around.’” And Alba, who plays an immigration officer in MAChete, adds, “She’s so good in this movie. I can’t wait for people to see (her in) it.” Lohan plays the daughter of a senator’s aide in the film, which hits cinemas (Sep10)
