Dralion – Cirque du Soleil at Valley View Casino Center We’re Giving Away Tickets! Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that Dralion will be performing in San Diego at Valley View Casino Center for seven performances. Fusing the 3,000 yearold tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”) draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature.

Founded in 2007, Cancer Angels of San Diego helps individuals living in this county who have been diagnosed with Stage IV cancer and are experiencing financial difficulties in meeting basic living expenses due to the extraordinary cost of their treatments, and most often, their inability to work due to their illness. Day

after day, they receive calls from newly‑diagnosed cancer patients seeking financial help through their patient programs. With your donations, they can answer their calls with a “Yes we can help!”, instead of placing them a waiting list.

Food and the Brain: Hunger Satisfaction and How to Avoid Overeating By Jennifer Lee, Ph.D. The regulation of how much we eat and drink is a constant battle for many of us. Our brains and bodies use a combination of signals to indicate fullness: sensory signals (taste, smell), gastric signals (full bellies), and nutrient signals (our bodies tell our brains whether we are lacking in certain vitamins and minerals, etc.). But when something is delicious, how do we stop eating it? How do we make sure not to consume too much for our own good? Sensory-specific satiety is defined as the decrease in the perceived pleasantness of an eaten food relative to that of an uneaten food. In other words, we are satisfied once we have enough of something (e.g., chocolate), such that it doesn’t seem as appealing as something else (e.g., salty snacks). Sensory-specific satiety affects neuron activity in areas of the brain such as the hypothalamus and orbitofrontal cortex in humans and other primates. Also, when people rate a food or drink as tasting pleasant, there is increased activation in the orbitofrontal cortex. So sensory-specific satiety is a good thing: it sends signals to the brain that help us keep from overeating. But what kinds of factors influence sensory-specific satiety? For one, the more oral-sensory stimulation, the more satiety. The degree of oral-sensory stimulation depends on physical food properties like taste concentration and viscosity, but also depends on bite or sip size. So, yes, it’s true: foods with stronger flavors and scents tend to be more satisfying. And taking smaller bites can also help. Research has

found that increasing oral-sensory stimulation decreases overall intake in subjects who have free access to food and drink. For example, in one study, rats consumed 18% more orangeade when they took large sips than when they took small sips. The researchers hypothesized that this was due to the suppression of the rewarding effect of the caloric drink by sensory satiety, which is greater for consumption with small sips (lots of oral-sensory exposure) than large sips (less oral-sensory exposure). Another factor is the issue of liquids versus solids. Pure juices and smoothies, although containing good stuff, are highly caloric. Research reports that liquid foods provide a lower degree of oral-sensory stimulation than solid foods, even when the energy content is the same. Additionally, animals demonstrate less compensating responses (exercise, reduced feeding) after getting their calories from drinks compared to solid foods. Getting your calories from solid foods is always better if you’re trying not to consume too much; because liquids, try as they might, have a low satiating power. Also interesting is the fact that the volume of food eaten and the degree of sensory stimulation are more relevant than energy density regarding overall intake. In other words, animal studies have shown that eating a large amount of a low-caloric food that happens to be strong in flavor (like radicchio with vinaigrette) can be just as satisfying as eating a small amount of something highly caloric (like green bean casserole). Thus, energy content does not seem to be important for determining meal size. Finally, diet-drinkers beware: if you’re craving a sweet beverage, diet soda might not be the answer. (This is

coming from a big diet soda fan, so you can trust my unbiased reporting.) Neuroimaging studies (PET, fMRI, etc.) have shown different brain responses to solutions of sugars and non-caloric sweeteners in drinkable form. It seems that tasting a caloric (sucrose) solution activates taste and reward areas in the brain more than similar-tasting non-caloric (sucralose) solutions. Therefore, perhaps Diet Coke has a lower satiating power than regular Coke. So keep your satiety high and your energy intake down by taking smaller bites and keeping the flavors in your mouth as long as possible. Smoothies are tasty, but eating whole fruits is probably best. And eat things with strong flavors; they’re more likely to activate your satiety signals, and you might even eat a little less. Information in part from “Consumption of caloric and non-caloric versions of a soft drink differentially affects brain activation during tasting,” NeuroImage, 54 (2011) 1367-1374.

egg and your choice of peppered bacon, ham, sausage or turkey sausage on a hot fresh bagel. We recommend trying their Better Cheddar Sandwich. This delicious sandwich comes with an egg patty with cheddar cheese, peppered bacon, and light garlic herb cream cheese on a fresh baked bagel, toasted if you wish. In addition to their famous bagels, breakfast sandwiches and bagel sandwiches, Bruegger’s also offers a healthier “Under 500 Calorie” menu. If you are a calorie counter, try one of their Skinny Bagels. Guests can now order any of Bruegger’s 15-plus varieties “skinny,” due to Bruegger’s unique slicing process. Instead of changing the recipe of its time-tested, New York-style bagel, Bruegger’s slices the bagels thinner using a process that removes approximately one-third of the bagel’s center but preserves its unique

eggshell crust and delicious toppings. The result is a lower calorie bagel without sacrificing variety or taste. Another healthy choice is their Skinny Zesty Egg White Sandwich. This comes with an egg white patty on a skinny sesame bagel, with turkey sausage, Swiss cheese and sundried tomato spread. Founded in 1983, Bruegger’s Enterprises, Inc. operates 300 Bruegger’s bakeries in North America. Renowned for its award winning bagels, Bruegger’s offers a wide variety of freshly prepared breakfast and lunch options made with high quality ingredients served with its unique brand of hospitality.

Pansymonium Ensues at “Dig Your Own Pansy” Event at Weidner’s Gardens Opening Day Nov. 1, Gates Open 8am, Digging Begins 9am The race is on. The die-hard pansy diggers are ready with digging trowels in hand. They are waiting for the opening bell. The ringing of the bell, at 9am sharp signals a mad race to dig the very best of the 14 thousand pansies and violas in full bloom, and ready to keep on blooming in your home garden. It’s Pansymonium! Opening week is a tradition for hundreds of passionate pansy lovers. Those smiling pansy faces, from tiny delicate violas to exotic ruffled edges. Plain faces with tiny whiskers along with super large giant blooms. The crowd is looking for the newest and the most spectacular. The field is divided in half. One half is prepared to open on the first weekend. This is to be fair to all the people from far away who cannot come during the week. Pansy digging is big, competitive and lots of fun. Everyone has fun digging from the littlest child to the oldest grandma. Pansies are one of the very best fall/winter into spring garden flowers. Field grown pansies are better because the roots have never been squeezed into pots or a 6 pack. Bigger, stronger roots make a bigger stronger plant that performs better. All pansies love the sun but will be OK in partial sun. Pansies love to eat and need a drink of water when they get a little dry, and love attention. Hey, just like you! This means picking the nice fresh flowers and picking off the dead ones too. Treat your pansies right and they will bloom easily for months and months of trouble-free beauty.

To see what 14,000 pansies look like, plan to be at Weidner’s Gardens by 9am on Thursday, November 1. By close of day, there will still be thousands of pansies left to dig, but there will also be thousands of holes without pansies. Digging continues through the month of December. For the best selection come early, but even weeks later there will still be plenty of pansies to choose from. Get a free gallon of Weidner’s “Good Stuff” fertilizer! Bring a one-gallon jug between Nov 1-7 and Weidner’s will fill it up with the “Good Stuff.” Limit one gallon per adult customer. Weidner’s Gardens is open daily 9am - 4:30pm except Tuesdays, and CLOSED the whole month of OCTOBER. Weidner’s is located at 695 Normandy Rd, Encinitas, 92024. Gates open at 8am. Digging begins at 9am. Visit for more information.

Newest Haim Salon Now Open at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort From his beginnings as a stylist apprentice in Tele Aviv with one of Israel’s most noted professionals, to training under Vidal Sassoon in London, Haim Knister has enjoyed a very successful career in the beauty and fashion industry. In 1991, after living in San Diego for a few years, Haim opened Haim Ltd. Salon, a fullservice exclusive salon, specializing in color, at Del Mar Plaza. Building a salon with the most talented & dedicated hair stylists, with a relaxed atmosphere, and a friendly ambiance with a “touch of class” that distinguishes his salon from others, was Haim’s goal, and still is.

For more than three decades in the hair industry, Haim has worked with Logics and L’Oreal and for the last fifteen

years has shared his knowledge and experience as a premier educator for Eufora International, as well as being one of the nation’s leading Eufora salons. And yet his commitment does not end there. Haim believes in giving back to the community. He has consistently raised money for charities such as Child Help, United through Reading, Las Damas, United Cerebral Palsey’s Dia Del Sol’s Beach & Country Guild, and Look Good Feel Better Cancer organization. Recently, Haim selected the Semper Fi Fund to benefit from his Grand Opening celebration at the Park Hyatt. According to Haim, “I pride myself on raising money to help organizations whenever I can….it gives me great satisfaction.” The local community is important to Haim as well.

Cancer Angels of San Diego 3rd Annual Walk & Celebration of Life

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Hosts 14th Annual Light the Night Walk

Oct. 13, 4pm Walk, 6pm Dinner

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer, is hosting its 14th Annual Light the Night Walk on November 2 at Petco Park in San Diego. The Light the Night Walk is an inspirational two-mile walk that brings together thousands of individuals to raise funds for lifesaving blood cancer research and critical patient and family services. “More than 957,000 Americans are battling leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma and it’s our goal to raise money to help those individuals live better, longer lives. The Walk is our opportunity to do just that and pay tribute and commemorate lives touched by cancer,” said Kristin Sacco, Deputy Executive Director of the San Diego/Hawaii Chapter. “This event is an experience unlike any other and truly brings light to the dark world of cancer. I guarantee that everyone participating in the Walk will be touched in some way.”

Lace up your shoes and join in this approximately 2.75 mile walk for a great cause at The Bridges Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe with spectacular panoramic views of the golf course, bridges, lakes, creeks and hillsides beyond. This event is to raise money for Cancer Angels of San Diego, a nonprofit organization, which helps Stage IV cancer patients in San Diego County with basic needs. Each week, Cancer Angels receive several calls from individuals with late-stage cancer that are unable to pay their basic living expenses due to the high cost of their treatment and inability to work. Unfortunately, week after week, they turn down many requests because of the number of current cancer patients that they are already helping--and their funds are running low. Please be an angel here on earth and walk for those with Stage IV cancer and help restore dignity to their lives! Cost is $25/person Walk and $75/person Walk & Dinner. To register or to donate visit www. or call (760) 942-6346.

Massage Envy Partners With Healing Hands and Arthritis Foundation Holiday Gift Cards Now Available Massage Envy’s 23 San Diego franchises wanted to do something unique and special this year. They put on a bowling event called “Street Fighters” and raised over $50,000 locally for the Arthritis Foundation. Dani Snyder, Marketing Director for Massage Envy, says, “We really wanted to make the event fun while at the same time build lasting relationships throughout the region. Our media partners and PR firm helped take the event to an even higher level.” Partnering with the Arthritis Foundation was a natural fit for Massage Envy, as they both share a common understanding about the seriousness of the disease and the power of massage therapy to relieve certain Arthritis symptoms.

Making Strides Walk at Balboa Park October 21, Sunday, 8am

National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) Services National Breast Cancer Foundation partners with medical facilities across the country to provide free mammograms and diagnostic breast care services to underserved women. We require that medical facilities within our network have the capacity to continue treatment after an abnormal finding or diagnosis of breast cancer. While NBCF provides free breast care services through its National Mammography Program (NMP), sometimes those in need are unaware that the program exists. Through patient navigation programs at medical facilities within our network, NBCF is able to promote the NMP to those that need it most. Patient navigation is a proactive approach to helping patients overcome the barriers of cost, fear, and misinformation surrounding the disease and its prevention. By helping underserved women to navigate the health care system, navigators provide the vision that gives women hope.

Radio Stations’ Amazing Pink Ribbon Challenge® October 1-31 The Pink Ribbon Challenge is a national fundraising campaign that lets radio listeners around the country “click to donate.” Hundreds of radio outlets across the country join the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to promote the eighth annual Pink Ribbon Challenge (PRC), in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 1-31. The Pink Ribbon Challenge is unlike any other fundraising effort. Listeners participate by visiting their favorite radio station’s web site each day during October. When clicking on the Pink Ribbon Challenge banner that the station places on its home page, listeners are directed to the Breast Cancer web site where another click on the “Click Here to Give—it’s FREE!” button takes them to a page of small advertisements. The sponsors that place the advertisements will “Pay-PerClick” for each daily visit! There is a limit of one click per day per person. With every click, the sponsor donates money to the NBCF for hospitals, clinics, missions, and mobile mammography units coast-to-coast. 100% of the money goes directly to charity. There is no cost to the listener. Just by clicking on the advertiser’s banner, the listener is actually causing the advertiser to donate money.

In recent years, more than 100 music celebrities, such as Bon Jovi, Reba McEntire, Amy Grant, Martina McBride, Donny Osmond and many others, have recorded public service announcements urging listeners to take the Challenge. Their voices go out across the country through a nationwide radio campaign that has been supported by TM Studios as well as nationally syndicated shows such as Crook & Chase. Last year, hundreds of radio stations hosted the month-long campaign by adding links to their web sites and broadcasting the PSA’s. In addition, performers such as Ann and Nancy Wilson (Heart), Deana Carter, and Anne Cochran have featured the Pink Ribbon Challenge on their own web sites. Founded in 1991, the NBCF is a nonprofit foundation that provides funding for mammography and early detection programs nationwide. The Foundation also funds breast cancer research, though its main focus is on saving lives through early detection, especially among women with little or no access to health care.

Santa Barbara Island to Catalina October 13, Saturday, 7am Start The Island-to-Island long-distance, open– ocean paddleboard race will take place on Saturday, October 13, 2012. This is only the third race of its kind in Southern California. Giles Douglas, 61, resident of Encinitas, California, produced the first transchannel island paddleboard race in 2004, and is doing so again this year, only much bigger this time. Douglas, a well respected waterman, used to compete in every major paddleboard race in California, Hawaii, and Australia until a boating accident in Malaysia in December 2009 almost took his life. After months of multiple surgeries and being in a foreign hospital, he returned to Encinitas. He is now battling cancer himself. Thankful to be alive, Douglas is putting on this event and is donating its proceeds to the City of Hope for cancer research, as he has done in past years. The Island-to-Island Waterman Relay will begin at Santa Barbara Island at 7am, October 13, and will end at the Isthmus,of Catalina Island. The event will include four separate classes in teams of three: Stand Up paddle 14’; Traditional lay down paddleboards; OC 1’s; and Surf Ski’s. The course travels due east and is approximately 28 nautical miles. At 3pm the gate opens to the event and at 3:30 one of California’s best Polynesian shows will begin. An awards ceremony with a catered dinner, dancing and cocktails will begin around 7:30 pm. The event will conclude promptly at 10:30 pm. There will be lodging, camping, and boating options available for all contestants and attendees. Anyone wishing to attend the event can ride over and return aboard the Catalina Express out of San Pedro at the close of the event. Call Catalina Express for daily departures.

From Humble Beginnings to One of the Biggest Talents in America An Interview with San Diego’s American Idol Superstar Jessica Sanchez From every season of FOX TV’s number one reality singing show, a new American Idol emerges on top as America’s favorite singer. This season, it came down to the final episode, and out of 132 million votes, 16 year old (now 17), San Diego native, Jessica Sanchez, with perhaps the best voice ever heard on Idol, came in second to the laid-back Idol winner, Phillip Phillips. Jessica, a home-schooled high school student from Chula Vista whose father is currently deployed in Singapore, has worked hard to achieve her goal - to help out her family through her voice. At 11 years old, she came close, as a contender for the wild card during the first season of America’s Got Talent; but she didn’t give up. That persistence worked well for her, and now her name is known all across the U.S. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Jessica and found her to be soft-spoken, polite and very humble. This is how our conversation went. Serena: When you were on American Idol, did you get to hang out with the judges and get to know them? Jessica: Not at all. The only interaction was what you guys saw on TV. There wasn’t any backstage stuff where they had their favorites or anything like talking to them or chilling with them. It was all just professional, pretty much. Serena: So when you were on stage getting critiqued, which judge did you feel like you connected with the most? Jessica: I think I connected with all of them. I Phillip  Phillips  and  Jessica  Sanchez— mean I loved it when they gave Photo by FOX TV

me the best criticism they could have given. I can’t really pick a favorite. Serena: Did you ever feel like the judges were unhelpful at all? Jessica: No, not at all. I think they told me how they felt from a viewer’s point and from a professional point, too. I mean, they knew what they were talking about. Serena: Every week you had to memorize a bunch of songs. Were you ever panicked about memorizing all those songs or did you know most of them? Jessica: Some of them I had never heard. It was difficult because we would have to learn them in a couple of days. It was definitely challenging but we all got through it. Serena: So, how did you go about memorizing them? Did you just listen to the songs over and over? Jessica: I’ve always been really good at memorizing stuff. I would do YouTube covers, so memorizing a song was like a piece of cake to me. But with all that stress and with everything else going on – you know, we were doing photo shoots and everything while trying to memorize a song. It was difficult; but, hey, I memorized them! (laughs) Serena: Up to this point, you’ve just been doing covers. Now you’ll be making your own albums. How do you feel about having actual writers write songs that will be tailored just for you? Jessica: It’s an amazing feeling. As a little kid, I always wanted to be on American Idol and experience that. But I’ve always wanted to make an album with my own songs and show everybody who I really am. Now I have a chance to do that, so I’m really proud and excited about everything that’s going my way. Serena: Are you participating in the song writing for your new album? Jessica: At this moment, no. All the songs that they’re showing me right now are amazing to me. I don’t think that they really need many changes. But if I feel like there needs to be maybe something changed then I’ll definitely bring it up. Serena: Before you were on American Idol you were on America’s Got Talent. I heard that after you went on America’s Got Talent a lot of kids at school suddenly want-

ed to be your friend just because you had been on such a popular TV show. How did you deal with that? Jessica: During middle school it got kind of like that, but people weren’t very blunt about it. You could tell a little bit, I guess. It wasn’t that I was a singer but people knew me for that and it made me a little uncomfortable because I was known as Jessica Sanchez the Singer instead of just Jessica. It was weird. I’m the type of person who’s really picky when it comes to making friends. I love people who are down-to-earth and like to keep themselves private. Not like, “Oh yeah, Jessica’s my friend” and all that. I don’t really have many close friends; but there’s a reason for it. Serena: Were you popular in school? Jessica: My name was popular, I guess you could say. People knew who I was and would come up to me and say “hey”—people I had never even talked to before —but they weren’t like friends. People knew who I was, but we didn’t really hold conversations. Serena: How are you handling being famous now? Jessica: Literally, I don’t really feel famous. (laughs) I just feel like even though we’re out of the Idol bubble we’re still in this world where we’re not really seeing what other people are listening to. Like, I don’t even know what’s playing on the radio right now or what’s going on. (laughs) Deandre and I took a taxi one time and there was one of those little TVs in the taxi and on a commercial we saw Phillip and we were freaking out. I mean it’s just weird to us. We’re not used to it at all. Serena: Do you ever go on the internet and see netizens criticizing you? Do you look on the internet at all? Photo provided by FOX TV

JESSICA SANCHEZ Continued from page B-7 Jessica: I don’t ever look myself up but I go on my Twitter to talk to my fans and to respond to them. Some people like to express themselves and they try to tell you how they feel about you. Sometimes I get some really expressive Twitter messages but nothing has really brought me down at all. I’ve always sort of gotten that kind of stuff. I’m not perfect. There’s always going to be somebody that doesn’t like me. We just gotta live with it and get used to it. Can’t please everybody. Serena: I noticed you have good fashion sense. Do you like being dressed up or do you prefer to be more casual? Jessica: It depends. If I’m dressed down I need to have one thing that makes it look good. If I’m wearing sweatpants and a tank top I need to have jewelry that looks good with it. I’m weird. (laughs) I’m really into fashion, though. Serena: How much makeup do you wear when you’re not on TV? Jessica: Not a lot at all. I wear just foundation and eyeliner and that’s pretty much it. Serena: No lipstick or anything? Jessica: I wear a little bit but not like a full-on blast of color. I don’t like all that stuff and I was never into makeup before; but I have to look somewhat prepped up. (laughs) Serena: What kind of earrings do you like to wear? Jessica: It depends. I like a lot of tribal stuff. I don’t like all that fancy stuff but I love the big tribal earrings. Serena: What advice can you give singers aspiring to make it through American Idol? Jessica: Just don’t let anybody bring you down. Don’t let anybody change you. I mean, because if it’s something that you want to do your whole life, then go for it. When I was like ten years old or even five years old, I wanted to be on American Idol, and so I tried out the first year I was eligible, and I made it to the top two! (laughs) It was pretty crazy.

La Costa Valley Preschool and Kindergarten— an Institution of Excellence for 22 Years La Costa Valley Preschool has been educating and nurturing North County children in La Costa since 1991. In 1999, due to their outstanding track record and fine reputation, they were selected out of many applicants, to be part of the preschool and kindergarten for the Villages of La Costa development that consists of more than 5,000 single-family homes in La Costa Valley, La Costa Oaks, La Costa Greens and La Costa Ridge. The school is located in the heart of La Costa Valley between two award-winning elementary schools and next to a protected natural habitat for native plants and birds. Although located in La Costa Valley, the school’s enrollment is not limited to La Costa Valley residents, but serves all of North County. Through the stewardship of its founder and director, Cindy Cesena, La Costa Valley Preschool and Kindergarten has become a leader in early childhood education and development, inspiring creativity, expression and health in young children, as it is a learning institution that understands that children learn best through hands-on experiences, helping make our community and planet a greener and healthier place to live and grow. Take a visit to their campus, and you will find a flowering and thriving gar-

den and play area unlike any other preschool around. Last month the school put on a very successful community-wide free electronic waste collection event.

She has been a member of the San Diego Association For The Education of Young Children (SDAEYC) since 1976 and this year has become the president-elect of the San Diego and Imperial Valley County’s chapter of SDAEYC. All that said, if you ask her what her dream was, and still is, her answer is, “My goal was to one day open a school in my own childhood community. I look at early childhood learning as a whole child educational experience. From inspiring creativity, expression and health to helping students develop an interest and excitement in building their educational foundation for ongoing school success.” Take a tour of La Costa Valley Preschool and Kindergarten at 2276 Calle Barcelona, Carlsbad 92009.

Off to a Great Start New Pacific Preschool and Kindergarten Now Open in San Elijo Hills Lynda Way understands the value of a child’s Early Childhood Education in implementing her very successful Pacific Preschool and Kindergarten curriculum. Pacific Preschool provides an early education program that meets the needs of and promotes the physical, socio-emotional and intellectual development of children. It all starts with a person who spent many years teaching kindergarten, first and second grades. Lynda Way, with her Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education, understood the need to get children more prepared for elementary school and beyond, and developed a specific educational program that focuses on “school readiness.” Just as important, she understands the need for genuine communication between parents, staff and administration. Now, after 40 years of working with children and teachers, Lynda’s program is a huge success. Each Classroom Teacher on staff is experienced and has a four-year Bachelor’s Degree or a California Department of Education Teaching Permit while working on her Bachelor’s Degree. Each Teacher makes a special contribution to the program in addition to her knowledge of child development and teaching strategies. Pacific Preschool and Kindergarten is no ordinary school. It is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), which is a distinction earned by only 8 percent of preschools in the nation. The new year-round preschool and kindergarten offers programs for children 18 months old through Kindergarten. The school, located in San Elijo Hills, is Pacific Preschool’s third school; the others are located in Ladera Ranch and Laguna Niguel in South Orange County. Pacific Preschool and Kindergarten in San Elijo Hills is off to a great start with the early enrollment far exceeding all of their expectations. They are already signing children up on a waiting list for upcoming years. There are still openings for this year, so please contact the school’s Administration Office as soon as possible, by calling (760) 510-0155, visiting or stopping by the school office at 1301 Elfin Forest Road West, San Elijo Hills (San Marcos) CA 92078.
