The Big Read
hat would it be like to live through an apocalypse? It’s not a pleasant question. But Emily St. John Mandel’s bestselling novel Station Eleven (Vintage, 2015) uses this ominous “what if?” to contemplate the importance of art in society, and what it means to remember and be remembered. The novel is the subject of the Lake County Library’s Big Read, a National Endowment for the Arts program that turns a book into a source of community-wide conversation on a variety of topics. The library and its partners are holding a number of activities associated with the initiative. Here are the few of them: Forgotten Skills Fair: October 7, 1 p.m., at the Lake County Courthouse Museum in Lakeport. Just like the novel’s characters, you can learn about survival skills such as the art of spinning and washing laundry with a washboard in a stream. Graphic Novel Playshop: October 8, noon–5 p.m., at the Middletown Art Center in Middletown. Find out how a graphic novel, such as the one used in Station Eleven, tells a story, and begin to make your own book.

Take Charge of Your Health Tests that Could Save Your Life By Sandra Gordon
yearly mammogram is the gold standard for breast-cancer screening and detection. The American Cancer Society recommends a yearly mammogram for all women age 40 and older. If you have a family history of breast cancer, your doctor may advise starting mammography before age 40. The United States Preventive Services Task Force advises that women age 50 and over get a mammogram every two years. Mammography is the only test that has been scientifically proven to save lives. Still, it’s not infallible. “In women with very dense breasts, mammography will miss cancer 58 percent of the time,” says Thomas Kolb, M.D., a breast-cancer radiologist and leading ultrasound researcher. Dense breasts contain more glands, ducts, and connective tissue than fat. Breasts tend to be denser during a woman’s reproductive years; density makes it harder to detect suspicious lumps on a mammogram. That’s because glandular tissue appears white on a mammogram, just like a mass can. Fortunately, there are new tools that can give a more precise diagnosis, especially if you have dense breasts, or you’re at higher risk for the disease because of your personal or family health history. Here are four that 10 MendoLakeFamilyLife
may give you a clearer picture of your breast health—and could possibly save your life. Tomosynthesis: The latest in breast-cancer detection technology, tomosynthesis is done in addition to a digital mammogram. During tomosynthesis, the breast is compressed, though slightly less so than with a conventional, digital mammogram, and a series of images are obtained from multiple angles. Tomosynthesis takes an arc of pictures through each breast, in 5 millimeter slices, which are then reconstructed into a three-dimensional image. It allows radiologists to see through the breast tissue. They can more easily distinguish a true mass from overlapping structures,
such as ligaments or glandular tissue. Tomosynthesis can be used for screening and diagnostic mammograms. Pros/Cons: Compared to a digital mammogram, women with dense breasts who undergo tomosynthesis are 40 percent less likely to be called back for additional imaging. Women who undergo tomosynthesis will
Breasts tend to be denser during a woman’s reproductive years. be exposed to the same amount of radiation as a traditional, analog (film) mammogram, which is slightly more than today’s digital mammogram. The risk of radiation-induced breast cancer is extremely low, affecting only 0.1 percent of women screened. In comparison, the screening test itself can reduce the risk of dying from breast cancer by about 50 percent. Should you ask for it? Screening tomosynthesis is in order if you have dense breasts, but no symptoms. It takes a global 3-D picture of each breast. If you have a complaint
October 2017 www.mendolakefamilylife.com
or something is found during a screening mammogram, you’ll go to the diagnostic level, which is a mammogram with tomosynthesis that magnifies and focuses on one particular area of the breast. Because the FDA-approved technology is relatively new, screening tomosynthesis isn’t routinely covered by health insurance. Diagnostic tomosynthesis is typically covered by health insurance with no co-pay necessary. Automated breast ultrasound: During this test, an automated ultrasound machine, which uses a computer program, takes ultrasound images of breast tissue. The images are recorded and given to a radiologist, who can interpret them. Doctors currently use handheld ultrasound devices to hunt for breast tumors in some patients. The labor-intensive process can skip some tumors. Automated breast ultrasound eliminates the need for an ultrasound technologist, so there’s less risk of missing a lesion. Pros/Cons: Automated breast ultrasound can help detect breast cancer. Breast cancer detection doubled from 23 to 46 in 6,425 screening studies using automated breast ultrasound with mammography, resulting in a significant cancer detection improvement. Some insurance providers don’t cover the test yet, so check your policy. Should you ask for it? If you have dense breast tissue, ask for it in addition to a screening mammogram. If you’re at high risk but you don’t have dense breasts, a mammogram should suffice. www.mendolakefamilylife.com
Computer-Aided Detection (CAD): With this technique, a computer scans a digital mammogram and flags areas of concern, enabling a radiologist to take another look and decide whether the computer markings warrant further action. “It’s like having an automatic second opinion,” says Mitchell D. Schnall, M.D., Ph.D., a professor of radiology. Pros/Cons: Two studies reported that CAD found 20 percent more cancer than mammography alone. But CAD also tends to mark non-cancerous lesions, such as bunched-up tissue, benign lymph
There are new tools that can give a more precise diagnosis, especially if you have dense breasts or you’re at higher risk. nodes, and benign calcifications, so the rate of false positives is high. Less than 1 percent of findings marked by CAD turn out to be cancer. CAD is widely available at mammography centers and university- and hospital-affiliated breast clinics across the country and is generally covered by insurance. Should you ask for it? Although CAD isn’t a perfect tool, “it should be the standard of care for every woman who gets a mammogram,” says Stamatia Destounis, M.D. “But there’s definitely a learning curve.” To reduce your risk of unnecessary additional testing, find a facility with mammography-certified technologists and trained radiologists who have been using CAD for at least a year. October 2017
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): This tool employs magnetic and radio waves instead of X-rays to create high-definition cross-sectional images of breast tissue. For the test itself, the patient is injected in the arm with safe, nonradioactive contrasting salt solution, then lies facedown on a table with both breasts positioned into cushioned coils that contain signal receivers. The bed is then sent through a tube-like magnet. In areas where there might be cancer, the contrasting agent pools and is illuminated on computer-generated images. Pros/Cons: MRI has been shown to find 2 to 6 percent more cancers than mammograms and clinical breast exams in high-risk women. MRI can’t detect calcifications, which are a frequent sign of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), the most common type of non-invasive breast cancer. That’s why MRI is used as a complement to mammography, not a replacement. MRI has also a significant risk of false positives. Screening breast MRI costs $1,000 to $2,000, though many insurance carriers now cover it. Should you ask for it? “Even if you have as little as a 2 percent risk of breast cancer over the next five years, talk to your doctor about adding MRI,” says Wendie Berg, M.D., Ph.D., a breast-imaging consultant. MRI breast-imaging centers are springing up across the country, but it’s important to seek out a facility that has MRI-guided biopsy capability, so a tissue sample can be retrieved for diagnosis at the time of your scan if a questionable mass is spotted.

Crafting with Kids
Get Ready for Lots of Loot!
By Kathryn Streeter
ith the approach of Halloween each year, smart merchandisers work their magic to lure us into buying candy, costumes, trinkets, and props, including trick-or-treat bags. The pressure from companies and the kids to buy new apparel and accessories year after year can be emotionally exhausting, making us feel like we are bad parents if we don’t spring for the newest shiny objects. In order to get around some of the pull for this year’s latest and greatest, I put my kids to work on designing their own candy bags.
Supplies: 1. Small paper shopping bags. Ours happened to be from Starbucks. The important thing is that each of your young designers has the same size bags, to eliminate any arguing about who has more candy at the end of the trick-or-treating night. 2. Crayons, markers, colored pencils, pens, pencils, and highlighters—pull out everything you’ve got! 3. Scissors (Decorative scissors, if you have them, are a nice addition, too.) www.mendolakefamilylife.com
4. Stencils 5. Glue 6. Any and all types of construction/ craft paper, scraps of wrapping paper, and tissue. Steps: 1. Completely cover the outside of the paper bag with your thickest paper. For starters, this will block out store logos. It will also provide a stronger base for the weight of all that candy. Tip: Don’t forget to cover the bottom because this will further strengthen the bag. October 2017
2. This is where you sit back and sip your coffee as you let the kids come up with their personal designs. Pumpkins? Ghosts? Candy? Text with cheery Halloween sayings? A little comic strip? These were some of the ideas my kids came up with. They cut out objects and used paste to layer them onto the bag, a bit more interesting than simply drawing on the design. 3. When your trick-or-treat bags are complete, they should feel sturdy. If your kids have gone through a bottle of glue, the bags could even resemble hardy paper-mache projects. At least they won’t break! Put these original works of art somewhere safe, up high, where they can dry completely before they are put to use.

Backyard Science 2 Experiments to Try at Home
By North Bay Science Discovery Day Committee
Leaf Lessons Have you ever noticed that fallen autumn leaves don’t stick around forever? In our neighborhoods, we collect them to be sent away with the rest of our waste. But what goes on in the forest? Try this experiment to investigate what happens to leaves after they fall off trees. Materials 2 recently fallen leaves
5. Make observations of the two leaves every few days. Are they changing? Do your observations match your predictions? 6. After a few weeks, make a drawing comparing the two leaves. How are they different? What do you think happens to leaves that fall off the trees every year?
1 Ziploc bag big enough to hold a leaf flat 1 small plastic bin with lid
Scissors Scotch tape Small, light toy (like Legos figure) Instructions Use the materials to design a parachute or hot air balloon that can fall slowly and protect your toy. Have an adult climb onto a chair to test your design. What parachute design and material fall the slowest? • You don’t have to use all of the materials.
2. Put the soil into the small bin, and partially bury the leaf in the soil.
Design a way to protect your favorite small toy from a bad fall. Who can make his or her toy fall the slowest?
3. Poke a few holes in the lid and cover the bin.
Materials Plastic shopping bags
4. Make a prediction of what will happen to the two leaves. Why do you think it will occur?
Basket coffee filters
3 cups “wild” soil (containing some worms and insects), partially damp Instructions 1. Put 1 leaf into the Ziploc bag and seal it tight.
Disposable cups (Styrofoam works well)
Small squares of cloth
• Lots of tape might make your parachute heavy.
Find more experiments like these at the free North Bay Science Discovery Day on October 28, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa.

A Piece of Music History
hen ’60s and ’70s singer-songwriter Laura Nyro died of cancer in 1997, she was only 49. But in her short life, she made a powerful impact on music, so much so that she was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. Listen, dance, and sing along to locals performing her tunes—and some of their own—at a Music and Dance Tribute to Laura Nyro at the Willits Center for the Arts in Willits on October 13, 7–10 p.m. A $15 donation is suggested to see the show, which is a benefit for the arts center.

Absolutely True Excuses Why We Are Late or Aren’t Showing Up at All By Sarah Broussard Weaver
1. My kid could not find her shoe. That’s why her shoes don’t match. 2. My kid had to poop, an urge seemingly brought on by walking out our front door. 3. Tucker the Cairn terrier peed on the floor. While I was getting a towel my son slipped and fell, got dog pee on his shorts, and started crying.
9. My kids were fighting over who ate the marshmallows out of the box of cereal, and who should consequently get the remnants. 10. My kids were fighting about who lost the remote. 11. My kids were fighting, and it’s way too convoluted to explain.
4. My husband thought my daughter’s shirt was too wrinkled. Like anyone cares about wrinkles on kids, I know, but he pulled out the iron.
My son keeps wearing his shoes without socks so they smell like death.
5. One of the kids left a peanut butter handprint on my butt. I don’t even know who. I guess it doesn’t matter.
12. My kids were fighting. I don’t even understand why.
6. Tucker ran away while he was outside going potty. We had to drive the streets screaming his name while the two youngest kids cried for fear he would be eaten by coyotes. We found him. He will live to pee on our floor another day.
13. Your kid is mean to my kid, and we know we only got invited because the whole class had to be. Your kid’s gift is that we aren’t coming. 14. One of my family members has diarrhea. I’m not allowed to say who. It’s not me.
7. We decided to show up late because we didn’t actually want to come but felt obligated.
15. I forgot to buy your kid a birthday gift and was too embarrassed to give her $20 in an envelope like we did last time, so we just didn’t go to the party.
8. We all hate middle school band concerts (including the middle schooler actually in the band) so we procrastinated.
16. I forgot to buy your kid a birthday gift and was too embarrassed to give him $20 like the last two times. But my kid was crying about missing the
party, so I pretended we actually just forgot the present at home. I hope I remember to actually buy it so I don’t have to think of a new excuse when my kid doesn’t bring it to school. 17. We ate lunch at Mamacita’s before your afternoon get-together and three out of four of my kids had to poop after they ate. Not at the same time, of course, so it took very long. 18. Your kid’s party is the fourth birthday party this weekend, and I just can’t deal with another one. Sorry. Here’s $20 in an envelope for him. 19. My son keeps wearing his shoes without socks so they smell like death, and his other shoes don’t fit because he is Bigfoot. Can we arrange another play date for our boys after I have time to throw his death shoes in the washing machine? 20. I forgot about your child’s birthday party and was only reminded when one of the school moms checked in on Facebook when she got there. Here’s $20. I’m out of envelopes. ¶ Sarah Broussard Weaver has four very loud children, three dogs, a cat, a hedgehog, some fish, and a hubby. Send help! This piece was originally published at Parent Co.
