How to Make Healthy Seafood Choices Seafood has long been seen as a healthy addition to a person's diet. Easily digestible and rich in high-quality protein that provides a mix of essential amino acids, seafood can play an integral role in a healthy diet. As healthy as seafood can be, the Natural Resources Defense Council notes that eating fish is not always healthy for individuals or the environment. Contaminated fish can be unhealthy and seafood that has been overfished can result in long-term issues for oceans and marine life. Because there are extenuating circumstances with regard to consuming seafood, the NRDC offers the following information to seafood-loving consumers so they can be certain they're making the healthiest and most eco-friendly choices when buying seafood. • Choose smaller fish. When purchasing seafood, consumers should consider a Smaller marine animals, host of factors to ensure the including squid, oysters, fifish sh is healthy and not harmful mackerel, mussels and to the environment.

even sardines, are more plentiful. In addition, smaller fish contain less mercury, which is more beneficial to your health. • It's important to know the source of your fish. The health of a species may depend on its location. Fish caught in sustainable ways are typically healthy for both consumers and the environment. The NRDC recommends consumers use the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch guide (montereybayaquarium.org) to learn about the various regions and which provide the most sustainable choices. • It's important to know how your fish was caught. In addition to the location of fish, how they were caught should also be an important consideration for consumers. Hook-and-line fishing and fish caught with pots and traps are considered the most eco-friendly methods of fishing. Longline fishing, which requires the use of long fishing lines with thousands of hooks that can kill both sea turtles and birds, can be very harmful to marine life. In addition, the NRDC considers bottom trawlers, which are nets that can cut the ocean floor and kill various types of marine life, including sea urchins, coral dolphins and whales, especially harmful to the environment and marine life. • Choose wild fish. The NRDC notes the concerns about the environmental impact of fish farming, advising consumers to purchase wild-caught fish instead. • Eat local. Local varieties of fish that haven't been depleted in local waters are more eco-friendly than fish from another part of the country or world. That's because fresh fish must be transported through the air, which requires substantial amounts of energy. More information about choosing seafood that is healthy for consumers, as well as the environment, is available at nrdc.org. - Metro Services

Monitor your Home for Increased Fire, Air Quality Risks As consumers, we've become accustomed to looking for labels that certify a product as organic, environmentally sound or grown without pesticides or hormones. Yet rarely do we think about the safety of a product labeled "green" or "environmentally friendly" because those terms promise safety. This is false, and in fact, home safety risks are rising. Taking a few simple steps can help ensure that our homes look good, are genuinely safe and environmentally friendly. INDOOR AIR QUALITY According to the Greenguard Environmental Institute (greenguard.org) dedicated to improving indoor air quality and reducing chemical exposure, Americans spend up to 90 percent of our time inside and indoor air can often be 10 times more polluted than outside air. From the gases given off by carpeting and fabric to cleaning chemicals circulating indoors, the air in our homes can be hazardous to our health. Homeowners looking for products they can safely use in the home around children or products that won't harm indoor air quality can check the Greenguard site, which features a directory of products that meet the institute's indoor air quality standards. This is especially helpful if you're buying new furniture, renovating after a storm, remodeling or building a new home because you'll be able to select products you can count on.

FIRE HAZARDS In addition to indoor pollution, today's consumers have another serious concern: fire. "Since the 1970s, fires have been cut in half, but the number of fire deaths hasn't gone down," says Chris Hasbrook, vice president of building materials, fire and life safety for Underwriters Laboratories (UL.com). According to Hasbrook, today's homeowners have an increased risk of dying in a fire despite widespread use of smoke alarms. He attributes this to the increased number of synthetic- and petroleum-based building and furnishing products over the past 20-plus years — the same products often implicated in reduced indoor air quality. "A generation ago, it took 29 minutes for a living room to become fully engulfed in flames," says Hasbrook. "Today, it only takes three to four minutes." Simply put, we have significantly less time to get to safety in the event of a fire and if there is a fire in the home, we're at greater risk of dying as a result. "No one thinks a fire can happen to them," says Hasbrook, "until it happens to them." This is why checking on the safety of the products used in the home is so important; it could save your life and that of your family. IMPROVING HOME SAFETY Hasbrook points to a number of factors that can help your home withstand a fire. A fast way to improve home fire safety? Finish the basement. "A basement with engineered wooden I-beams that catches fire can cause a house to collapse in six minutes, as opposed to 16 minutes with traditional lumber," says Hasbrook. For that reason, he recommends putting sheetrock around any exposed beams — especially if they're made of engineered wood — which burn faster and hotter than standard wooden beams. Overall, Hasbrook says the best way to improve your odds of surviving a home fire is to have a monitored fire alarm.

Learning Rx

333 Jericho Turnpike, Jericho (516) 870-3737, learningrx.com

Executive Director of Learning Rx, Steve Kent said, “We focus on the seven key cognitive skills that determine how a person learns and performs, and from there, we provide different programs based on the person’s skill set or deficiencies.” The programs at Learning Rx focus on the comprehensive loading of skills. Students are given a simple task

to do and when they have mastered that, another task is “loaded” onto it — getting more difficult and strengthening the brain as the student progresses. “This system improves the brain’s ability to do more, faster and better,” explained Kent. “These individually-designed programs are based upon an assessment of the cognitive skills through the Woodcock Johnson III set of cognitive skills test. All of our programs are non-academic, non-computer based and administered in one-to-one sessions with students.” The new location in Jericho has recently opened, but Learning Rx has helped 30,000 students in 85 centers across the country. “The new location is going well; the public has really responded. We are raising awareness of the need for something that has not been offered in the community before,” said Kent. “We chose this location due to the competitive nature of the school systems in the area. We understand and appreciate how hard teachers work and how dedicated they are to giving each student their full attention, but due to budget cuts and large class sizes, sometimes this can be difficult.” With Learning Rx’s personalized, one-on-one training programs, students can slowly develop their brains and receive the individualized attention they need. They work with the same instructor throughout their whole program and there are never group sessions. The programs guarantee results and help increase student’s IQs an average of 15 points. “The skills we give students remain with them,” stated Kent. “They help with many aspects of everyday life and become a part of the student’s life, making it easier for them and those around them. Students who complete our programs think better and have increased processing and memory skills.” Learning Rx is for struggling students, athletes seeking to improve the mental aspect of their game, preschool students wanting a successful launch into school, traumatic brain injury victims and senior adults hoping to prevent age-related memory loss. Their success is unmatched by any program and clients experience an average of three years of reading improvement. -Kristin Cacchioli

Secrets for Stress-Free Homemade Family Dinners Preparing an involved family dinner may not sound like the most appealing idea at the end of a long day, but homemade food is usually healthier, more economical and certainly more delicious than ordering takeout dinners. “The best way to ensure you’re feeding your family wholesome meals is to make it yourself,” says Katie Workman, author of The Mom 100 Cookbook, a new cookbook designed to help time-pressed parents prepare crowd-pleasers. “Luckily, homemade doesn’t need to mean a big daily fuss.” The key is to prep in advance, cook in big batches and repurpose leftovers, according to Workman. Doing so keeps things simple for you and interesting for your family. Creative repurposing can save you time and money. For a meal you can enjoy all week, try this recipe from Workman for “Monday Night Brisket,” which you can make on a Sunday, eat hot Monday alongside potatoes, then enjoy later in the week as a soup on Tuesday, a sandwich on Wednesday and even a quesadilla Thursday. MONDAY NIGHT BRISKET (Serves 8 to 10) INGREDIENTS: 1 teaspoon olive oil 2 teaspoons minced garlic 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon salt 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 first-cut beef brisket (4 to 5 pounds) 2 cups chopped onions 4 large carrots, peeled and thickly sliced 3 bay leaves 3 tablespoons tomato paste 1 cup low-sodium beef or chicken broth 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes in juice or puréed 1 cup red wine 2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley, for garnish DIRECTIONS: • Preheat oven to 325 degree F. • Place first five ingredients in bowl and stir. Rub mixture all over. • Place brisket fat side up in large casserole or Dutch oven with lid. Toss in onions, carrots and bay leaves. • Blend tomato paste into broth and then pour over meat and vegetables. Pour crushed tomatoes and red wine on top. Cover casserole and bake brisket until meat is very tender, 3 to 3 1/2 hours. • If you’re serving it the next day, let it cool then place in the refrigerator. An hour before serving, skim off hardened fat and cut excess fat from the top. Slice brisket across the grain and return to cooking liquid. Reheat on stovetop over medium-low heat, or in preheated 325 degree F oven, until everything is warmed through and cooking liquid has thickened. Adjust seasonings as needed. • If you’re serving it today, remove meat from casserole and let it rest on a platter, loosely tented with aluminum foil. Let the cooking liquid and vegetables sit for about 15 minutes, then spoon off accumulated fat. Place casserole over medium-high heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Adjust seasonings as necessary. Slice meat across the grain, return to pot and discard bay leaves. • Garnish with parsley. More great tips and recipes for busy parents who want DIY dinners can be found at theMom100.com. -Statepoint PHOTO SOURCE: (c) Todd Coleman

If you or someone close to you is having trouble focusing in school, work, on the sports field or behind the wheel of a car, brain training is the answer. Unlike tutoring, brain training develops the underlying skills of the brain that help an individual learn better and maintain those learning skills over time. Learning Rx in Jericho helps students better understand the brain and become smarter overall. Tutoring re-teaches information that people were unable to initially comprehend, but brain training is a key element in learning, when simply repeating information doesn’t help. Struggles re-emerge, because unlike brain training, tutoring does not uncover the weak cognitive skills behind the students’ learning deficiencies.

F.H. Riley’s 400 New York Avenue, Huntington (631) 271-7600, fhrileys.com My wife and I recently attended an event at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington and were looking for a place nearby to grab dinner. Someone recommended Riley's — just a few doors down — so we thought we’d give it a try. I anticipated a dark, Irish pub, but instead walked in to find a fine entry bar, a bright, cozy dining room and white tablecloths; I was pleasantly surprised. Once we were seated, our friendly server told us all about the history of this family-owned establishment. Our only mistake that evening was feasting on the basket of homemade Focaccia bread, which we dipped enthusiastically into the delicious, vegetable humus. I then moved onto the Riley's Chicken Gumbo, filled with poultry, grilled Andouille sausage and vegetables, okra and rice. It was outstanding and almost a meal in itself. The other selections looked great, as well — mozzarella tower, spinach dip with tortilla scoops, crunchy spring rolls and mussels.

Salad choices at Riley's are plentiful and the portions are large. My wife ordered the California Crunch Salad, which put her in seventh heaven. The mixed greens, golden raisins, toasted pecans, goat cheese, shaved apples, pears and peppercorn cream were topped with light raspberry vinaigrette — just terrific! Our server suggested I order the Crackling Calamari, and after a few bites I understood why it is an all-time favorite at Riley’s. A variety of Signature Sandwiches are available, as well as burgers, wraps, pitas, pastas and Panini’s, but we were looking forward to the Signature Entrées. The fresh Lemon Tilapia Francaise, served over mashed potatoes (though I requested sweet potato fries instead) and breaded asparagus, was truly delicious and large enough for me to take some home. The Herb Crusted Salmon with grilled vegetables and roasted potatoes was equally as satisfying. At Riley’s, there is something for everyone — fish, beef, chicken — and because it is all freshly prepared, every dish can be customized to the diner’s specific tastes. It was impossible to resist the fine, homemade desserts that Riley’s has to offer. It was hard to choose from choices of Chocolate Mousse Cake, Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, White Chocolate Bread Pudding, Sinful Brownie Sundae and — are you ready — Guinness Stout Float (vanilla bean ice cream, whipped cream, Bailey’s and Guinness). Specialty Dessert Drinks included Spiked Hot Cocoa, Choco-cinno (dark chocolate Schnapps with cappuccino) and Toasted Coconut Martini. Complete with delicious food at affordable prices, Riley’s is the perfect place to have dinner with the family. If you plan on dining past 6:00 pm, be sure to make reservations, however, there may still be a short wait period. Dining outside is a must during the warm months; summer can’t come soon enough! Open seven days for lunch and dinner. -Randy Gordon

Most of what they buy are items that pawn shops or other gold buyers will not accept, because they might be unfamiliar with the items and therefore cannot give a fair price. Nassau Buyers buy one, one and a half, two and three-karat stones, designer jewelry, fine watches, antiques and just about anything customers want to sell. They accept some of the finest names in jewelry, like David Webb and Tiffany. The price of gold is high today and as a result, many people are buying gold regardless of whether they’re in the business or not. If you’re not dealing with a professional, you may not get enough money on your return, but Nassau Buyers offers the best value that you can get on Long Island. The three generations that have owned and operated Nassau Buyers are well versed in the business and will make sure you are getting full price for your valuables. Locations include 10 West Cherry Street, Hicksville; 837 Fort Solanga Road, Northport; 3 Main Street, Port Washington; 221 Walt Whitman Road, Huntington (516) 827-3131, nassaubuyers.com. **** It only takes a quick glance — maybe a few seconds — for people to gather their first impression of a home.
