hat is there to say about a “certified” University(Dickinson State) that issues bona-fide graduation degrees to students who do not take or finish course work or who accepts many students without minimum grades for enrollment…or, some who don’t even speak English? Your words might include scheming, uncontrolled greed, malfeasance or crookedness or dozens of others from your thesaurus. Yes, Dickinson State University surely seems to perfectly fit the “Diploma Mill” title definition for foreign students. How come? Well of the 410 foreign students who have received four year degrees from DSU since 2003, 400 did not fulfill graduation requirements. Keep in mind that foreign students, in this case mainly Chinese, pay full out-of state-costs. That surely helps fill up University coffers and pay fat compensation to the school’s hierarchy. One example, of the 27 Chinese students enrolled this Spring, 21 could not speak English “at the required competency level.” (Surprisingly the Chinese have some 157,000 studying, these days, in the United States. Thus we must be ahead of our commercial competitors in some ways they are anxious to learn about). Dickinson State University usually requires students to begin their course work at Universities in their home country, spend a year in study at DSU and then return home to conclude their school work to obtain a degree. A recent audit revealed most DID NOT get Completion Transcripts from most students home universities but awarded them degrees regardless…they actually received bachelor Degrees from DSU for only one years work! Dickinson State could face penalties from the State Department for violations of the Federal Student Visa Program. Also there may be sanctions from the Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security and the Higher Learning Commission, another accrediting agency. Now that the overall scam has been outed DSU’s new president, D.C. Coston, indicated his University will be telling students that there records do not indicate they sufficiently completed necessary requirements. Really-I wonder how the phone lines to China. will record these explanations Actually, I wonder many things including whether “sanctions” will include appropriate accountability for those who have been fostering this fraud for years..

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Aries, even though your intentions are good, be careful with words this week. Rely on your actions and not just your words to convey the message.

Taurus, you are absolutely sure your work week will go your way. Considering you weigh all the facts in decisions, there’s a strong chance you’ll be right.

New Icon Cuts Through The Clutter To Increase Awareness Of Thyroid Disorders (NAPSA)—There’s a new health icon in town and learning more about what it stands for could help millions of Americans live a healthier life. That blue paisley icon represents Thyroid Awareness. As many as 30 million Americans may be affected by thyroid disorders, although more than half remain undiagnosed, say experts at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists. The thyroid gland, or simply the thyroid, is one of the largest endocrine glands in the body. Found in the neck, it controls how quickly the body makes energy, makes proteins and processes other hormones. If your thyroid isn’t working properly, neither are you. But many people are not sure where their thyroid is or what symptoms might indicate a problem. Here are some facts you should know: •Thyroid cancer is one of the fastest-growing cancers in America and can be one of the most curable. The most common sign of thyroid cancer is a lump. •Thyroid disorders tend to run in families and are most common among women. •Hyperthyroidism, or an overactive thyroid, develops when the body is exposed to excessive amounts of thyroid hormone. It occurs in almost 1 percent of all Americans and in its mildest form may not cause recognizable symptoms. •An underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, occurs when the thyroid gland produces less than the normal amount of thyroid hor-

Many people do not realize the amount of research behind the development of commemorative icons, such as the blue paisley ribbon for thyroid awareness (www. ThyroidAwareness.com). mone. The result is the “slowing down” of many bodily functions. Thyroid Symptoms How do you know if you have a thyroid disorder? While fatigue is the most common symptom, others include: •Fast or irregular heart rate •Anxiety or irritability •Unexplained weight loss or gain •Intolerance of warm or cold temperatures •Muscle weakness. There is a simple neck check you can perform at home. You can find out more at www.ThyroidAware ness.com and (904) 353-7878. Chosen for its attractive pattern, the paisley is often found in items tied around the neck, such as neckties and scarves, where the thyroid is found. In fact, the curved shapes within the icon seem to mimic thyroid nodules.

Mealtime Shortcuts Save Time And Money (NAPSA)—When time is of the essence, the clever combination of a few freezer or pantry staples can make all the difference. Used by home cooks and professional chefs alike, kitchen shortcuts can save you time, money and, possibly, your sanity. Canned and jarred ingredients such as beans, stocks, soups and sauces may be slightly costlier than homemade, but the convenience more than compensates. Canned beans can be used in stews, salads and dips. Premade stocks and soups add flavor and complexity to sauces or casseroles. Jarred sauces provide a versatile base for pasta or rice dishes. While these items have a longer shelf life than fresh alternatives, they still expire. Check the dates on your pantry staples often and replace your stash when necessary. It may come as a shock, but frozen vegetables are often better than their fresh counterparts for quick cooking. Items such as frozen corn, peas and broccoli are harvested at the peak of the growing season and are flash frozen to preserve freshness and taste. Throw frozen corn into a zesty tortilla soup, stir frozen peas into a creamy pasta dish or fold frozen broccoli into a cheesy rice casserole to boost vegetable count. Beyond vegetables, the frozen section provides a variety of meal starters just waiting for the home cook’s personal touch. Familyowned and operated Michael Angelo’s Gourmet Foods—best known for its frozen Italian meals —offers a selection of traditional Italian meal starters, and imple-

The company’s Chicken Piccata and Italian-Style Sausage and Meatballs both come fully cooked in flavorful lemon-butter or traditional marinara sauce, respectively, but without the pasta that accompanies most Italian frozen meals. This way, the home cook can customize meals by serving the protein and sauce combination over fresh pasta, mashed potatoes or steamed vegetables. Additional options include combining the Chicken Piccata with rice and vegetables for a comforting casserole or stuffing the Italian-Style Sausage and Meatballs inside fluffy rolls for a traditional sub sandwich. Because Michael Angelo’s pledges never to add unnecessary preservatives, fillers and chemical additives, you can feel good about feeding your family and friends a naturally delicious meal with a personal twist.

Progress And Reform In Bahrain (NAPSA)—When 35 people tragically lost their lives in the wake of street protests in Bahrain, its rulers decided to deal with the disaster promptly and truthfully. In an unprecedented move, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa appointed an independent commission of international human rights experts—the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry—to investigate and make recommendations. The wisdom of this, in contrast to other parts of the Arab world, is reflected in a national dialogue and important recommendations to strengthen democracy and allow peaceful protest in Bahrain. Bahrain has also been undertaking major human rights reforms: strengthening the laws, providing more effective judicial oversight and better police training—leading American and British police experts have been hired to lead police reform—and supervising what happens to people held in police custody. The International Red Cross has agreed to inspect all the detention facilities in Bahrain to be sure the human rights of detainees are being maintained. The government proposed that parliament change the law to give greater protection for freedom of expression and assembly and ensure Bahrain’s human rights laws are in line with international standards. Already, women are politically empowered to an extent that is rare in the Middle East— there are 11 women out of 40 in the appointed upper chamber. In his speech on the Independent Commission report, King

Human rights reforms and progress are being made in Bahrain, an important U.S. ally in the Middle East. Hamad urged all Bahrainis to address mistakes and promote a community based on tolerance, pledging an environment of “a pluralistic, cohesive and prosperous society; a society that guarantees the rule of law and human rights; a society that ensures the tranquil pursuit of opportunities and fulfillment for everyone.” Bahrain’s commitment to human rights reform was reaffirmed when the Independent Commission published its report, which included 33 recommendations for government action and reform. An independent and impartial national commission has been established to implement the commission’s recommendations. The real story in Bahrain is of an Arab government resolving to improve its country’s governance, to strengthen judicial procedures, and to entrench human rights in accordance with the best possible international advice.

When Does It Make Sense To Go To The Emergency Room? (NAPSA)—Everyone has a story about a long night spent in the emergency room—the wait, the plastic chairs and the more urgent emergencies that skip ahead of your place in line. Patients, employers and insurers are beginning to question if the ER is always the best choice for every ailment. Until more recently, the ER was the only place to go for medical care after doctors’ offices closed for the day. Today, thousands of urgent care, walk-in clinics and retail health clinics operate nationally to help fill the void and care for patients who need minor medical attention. A RAND Corp study says about 17 percent of all visits to hospital emergency departments nationally could potentially be treated at retail medical clinics or urgent care centers for an estimated savings of $4.4 billion. Customers can see savings in the form of lower co-pays, which range from $100 to $200 for the ER, compared with $10 to $40 for retail health clinics, walk-in clinics and urgent care centers. For example, emergency room charges reported by one insurance company show them averaging $580 to treat strep throat, compared with $90 at urgent care centers and $40 at retail health clinics. Health insurers and self-insured companies also absorb many of these costs, but they can play a role in impacting premiums for members. The affiliated health plans of one health benefits company, WellPoint, have put together an easy-to-use online education program to help consumers find

Many visits to hospital emergency departments could potentially be handled at retail medical clinics or urgent care centers. the closest participating ER alternatives in their states. Members find the Web page by plugging in their health plan name and “urgent care” into online search engines. The Web page provides information on when it’s appropriate to use these alternatives and reinforces when it’s the right time to go to the emergency room. “Current data show that the highest rates of avoidable ER use are among people 34 and younger—those who are less likely to have a primary care physician but more likely to be technology consumers,” said Dr. Manish Oza, a WellPoint medical director and ER doctor who helped develop the program. “We devel-

oped Google Maps in the states where our affiliated health plans are located and create online advertising because that’s where so many people go for information when they’re deciding whether to go to the ER or not.” The best way to be prepared for making these decisions is to: • Know where your local retail health clinic or urgent care center is located and its hours; • Call a nurses’ hotline or the number on the back of your insurance card to find out if your condition can be treated at a retail health clinic or an urgent care center; • Know your co-pay for ER visits and whether you pay co-insurance for services during those visits.

Complete “Pear-ings” Make Meals More Nutritious (NAPS)—The only thing better than snacking on a ripe pear is pairing this delicious fruit with other whole foods. You can add pears to any meal to make it more nutritious. Pears are an excellent source of fiber and a good source of vitamin C. Combined with other whole foods, they’ll help you follow the USDA’s recommended MyPlate guidelines and get even closer to eating your daily requirement of fruits and vegetables. Jump-start your day by adding pears to your cereal or blending them into a mouthwatering yogurt smoothie. When preparing lunch, you can make dishes more interesting by adding pears. They work well in midday meals, such as sandwiches, salads and soups. Make dinner a complete source of nutrients when you add pears to whole-grain pasta or rice; proteinrich foods such as lean beef, chicken and seafood; or produce from acorn squash to zucchini. Surprisingly versatile, pears can also make desserts naturally sweet.

Surprisingly versatile, pears can make desserts sing with natural sweetness or put a fresh spin on savory dishes. 2 cups mixed greens Pomegranate seeds for garnish Combine oil, pomegranate syrup, pomegranate juice, salt and pepper. Reserve ¼ cup for drizzling on sandwiches. Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush cut side of pears with pomegranate vinaigrette. Grill cut side down until lightly grill-marked, about 5 minutes. Cool. Slice thin. Place chicken in a dish with remaining vinaigrette. Turn to coat. Remove from vinaigrette and grill on medium heat, 6–7 minutes, until lightly grillmarked. Turn. Brush with remaining vinaigrette in dish. Cook 6 minutes or until internal temperature is 170˚. Cool. Slice thin. Cut pocket breads in half. Fill halves with sliced chicken, pears, cheese and greens.

Since the best sandwich starts with homemade bread, the best way to launch any celebration is to bake some bread. The 250th anniversary only marks the naming of this classic meal. Bread has been eaten with meat or vegetables since Neolithic times. During the Middle Ages, slabs of bread, called trenchers, were used as plates. Eventually, the sandwich appeared as a latenight meal among the aristocracy. The meal was named after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, an 18th century English aristocrat, who in 1762 ordered his valet to bring him meat tucked between bread. Others began to order “the same as Sandwich!” Here are some recipes to help you enjoy some classic sandwiches. The whole wheat bread works well with peanut butter and jelly, while the Italian Daily Bread is perfect for a Tuscan Tuna Sandwich. The two bread recipes use Fleischmann’s RapidRise Yeast, which reduces rising time by as much as 50 percent, eliminating the first rise. 100% Whole Wheat Bread Makes: 2 loaves Prep time: 30 minutes Proof time: 30 to 60 minutes Bake time: 35 to 45 minutes 8 to 81⁄2 cups whole wheat flour 2 envelopes Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast 21⁄2 teaspoons salt 22⁄3 cups water 2 ⁄3 cup milk 1 ⁄4 cup honey 1 ⁄4 cup vegetable oil 1 ⁄2 cup wheat bran Combine 31⁄2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Breakthrough Technology To Permanently Combat Hair Loss (NAPSA)—While hair loss may be an inevitable part of aging, men no longer have to live with it—or suffer from the psychological, professional and social consequences. According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), at least 35 million men in the U.S. are affected by male pattern baldness, and by age 50, approximately half of all men will experience hair loss. While prescription remedies such as Propecia and Rogaine offer some benefits, the only way to permanently restore one’s hair is through hair restoration surgery. The ARTAS System is the newest method in hair restoration, using FDA-cleared technology that was developed with several leading hair restoration physicians. This computer-assisted, imageguided hair restoration technique offers a minimally invasive solution for permanent, natural-looking results. Hair restoration is performed as an office-based procedure. Implanted hairs develop their own blood supply and begin to grow, and new hairs are seen in a few months. New hair continues to grow over the course of a year, making gradual changes in a person’s appearance. The popular cosmetic procedure works by moving healthy, functioning follicles to the areas of the patient’s scalp most affected by baldness. Losing one’s hair can make men feel less attractive and less confident. “I started losing my hair when I was in my mid-20s and it was a huge blow to my self-confidence. I have been seeking a permanent solution ever since,” said Vincent DeLany, who recently had his hair restored with the ARTAS System. James Harris, M.D., of the Hair Sciences Center of Colorado in Denver, performed the procedure on DeLany.

The ARTAS System’s imag eguided technology allows for precise follicular unit harvesting and maximum patient safety. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the results—which were consistent with what we saw during the clinical trial across a broad group of patients,” said Dr. Harris. “This technology allows patients to permanently regain the vitality of their appearance affected by hair loss.” “My entire practice is committed to helping patients with various degrees of hair loss and providing them with state-of-the-art options that are very safe and effective,” commented Craig L. Ziering, D.O., FAOCD, founder and medical director for Ziering Medical Worldwide. “The ARTAS System is an excellent solution to hair loss that is less invasive and offers a quicker recovery time while maintaining natural, permanent results.” This procedure offers many benefits. There are no stitches, so you can quickly return to your daily activities. Those who undergo the procedure experience little discomfort and no linear scalp incision, making it possible to wear their hair very short without concern for visible scarring. Also, a person’s appearance gradually changes over time for more natural-looking hair regrowth. To learn more about the ARTAS System, visit www.artashair.com.

Colon Cancer Screening Saves Lives, But Many People Don’t Get Tested (NAPSA)—One in three people 50 years old or older has not been screened for colon cancer, yet screening could help save their lives. This statistic is just one of the troubling findings of a national study by the Colon Cancer Alliance, the leading national patient advocacy organization dedicated to increasing colon cancer screening rates and survivorship, and Quest Diagnostics, the world’s leading diagnostic testing company. The two organizations recently teamed up to uncover the barriers that prevent people from being tested for colon cancer (also known as colorectal cancer), the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in the U.S. Screening by colonoscopy, fecal immunochemical tests and other methods helps identify colon cancer in early stages when it is still highly treatable. For this reason, the American Cancer Society recommends screening for every man and woman of average risk, beginning at age 50. African Americans, smokers and anyone who has a family history or other risk factors should be tested even earlier. Yet the Colon Cancer Alliance/Quest Diagnostics study found that many people 50 and over are not being screened. Moreover, the barriers to screening ranged from the lack of recommendation for screening by a healthcare professional to time and cost constraints. The study also suggested that fear of the bowel preparation, side effects and anesthesia typically associated with colonoscopy are additional barriers. “Screening tests like a colonoscopy do a superb job of catching colon cancer in early, treatable stages,” said Jon R. Cohen, M.D., senior vice president and chief medical officer, Quest Diagnostics. “Unfortunately, some people refuse to undergo these proven tests because they find them inconvenient and unpleasant. Other individuals simply do not understand

Over 50? Talk to your doctor about getting tested for colon cancer. the value of screening, in some cases because a healthcare professional has not talked to them about it.” The study also found that 80 percent of respondents said they’d be more likely to be screened if a convenient blood test were available. Blood tests that detect the DNA of colon cancer tumors shed into the bloodstream are available in the U.S. and Europe, but have yet to be adopted into medical guidelines for screening. Quest Diagnostics offers its ColoVantage blood test to help physicians evaluate colon cancer risk in patients who refuse to undergo colonoscopy or other guideline-recommended tests. A positive test result requires further evaluation that may include colonoscopy. “Any death from colon cancer due to a failure to screen is a tragedy that could have been prevented,” said Andrew Spiegel, chief executive officer of the Colon Cancer Alliance. “I encourage patients to talk to their healthcare providers about the importance of colon cancer screening, their risk factors for colon cancer, and the different screening tests available. With increased screening rates, deaths from colon cancer may one day be a thing of the past.” To l e a r n m o r e , v i s i t w w w. c c a l l i a n c e . o r g o r w w w.

CT Screenings Could Be Game Changer For Lung Cancer At Least One National Insurer Now Covering CT Scans (NAPSA)—Advocates of lung cancer screening are hoping that CT scans will do for smokers what colonoscopies have done for those at risk of colon cancer—find the cancer early enough for therapy to work. Early-stage diagnosis is linked to longer survival rates for breast cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer—all cancers that have standard screening tests. Until now, however, there has been no proven screening test for lung cancer, which is the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. “Usually, by the time a more definitive symptom of lung cancer becomes obvious, the disease has already progressed to late-stage cancer,” said Laurie FentonAmbrose, president and chief executive officer for the Lung Cancer Alliance, a national nonprofit organization dedicated solely to patient support and advocacy for people living with lung cancer and those at risk for the disease. A recent study supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute was published in August in The New England Journal of Medicine. This randomized, controlled trial of more than 50,000 Americans found that spiral CT (computed tomography) screening performed each year for three years reduced the likelihood of deaths from lung cancer by 20 percent compared with those

CT scans may help find lung cancer early enough for therapy to work. screened by standard X-rays. The American Society of Clinical Oncology’s annual report on progress against cancer listed the study as one of 2011’s top advances. The study led at least one national insurer—WellPoint—to offer coverage of CT scans for current and former smokers at high risk for lung cancer who have medical histories similar to those in the study. The group studied was free of lung cancer symptoms, between 55 and 74 years of age and had smoked the equivalent of a pack a day for 30 years. The participants were either current smokers or had quit within the past 15 years. “This was the first time a welldesigned study on a large population of smokers showed that you could save lives through screening CT scans,” said John Whitney, a

WellPoint medical director. “Studies like this one provide the medical evidence we need to make good coverage decisions. We’re looking forward to medical research continuing to evolve on this issue.” Fenton-Ambrose said the Lung Cancer Alliance is hoping more insurers will make the same decision as WellPoint. “Now that we have the science, our work shifts to bringing the benefit of screening safely, effectively and equitably into the health care system,” said FentonAmbrose. For those who want to know if they are at risk of lung cancer, the Lung Cancer Alliance has set up an informational website at www.screenforlungcancer.org to help people understand more about the symptoms, screenings, disease and treatment.

Early Warning Symptoms (NAPSA)—Knowing the signs of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) may save the lives of thousands of women every year. PAD is a common circulation problem in which the arteries that carry blood to the legs or arms become narrowed or clogged. This is a red flag that could be a sign of heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women in the United States. Understanding PAD The most common cause of PAD is atherosclerosis—hardening of the arteries. Cholesterol and scar tissue build up, forming plaque that clogs the blood vessels and keeps blood from passing through as needed, restricting oxygen and other nutrients from getting to healthy tissue. The Risks Women with PAD have four times the risk of heart attack and stroke. The disease’s progression results in death for about onethird of patients. The Symptoms Of the 12 to 20 percent of Americans age 65 and older who suffer from PAD, only one-third show outward signs of the disease. Symptoms can include pain when walking that subsides at rest, leg cramps, pain at rest, numbness and skin discoloration, sores or other symptoms of skin breakdown. Women may be more likely than men to have no symptoms and are less likely to have intermittent claudication, the cramplike pains in the legs caused by poor circulation of blood to the leg muscles. The Test Through early detection, interventional radiologists can save women from future stroke, heart attack and early death. The ankle-

With early detection, women will be able to consult with an interventional radiologist when treatment is most effective and least invasive. Interventional radiologists are doctors who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging for guidance. In many cases, PAD can be treated with medication and lifestyle changes such as smoking cessation, diet and a structured exercise program. Women would be wise to get tested if they’re over age 50 or have: •A family history of vascular disease •High cholesterol •Diabetes •Ever smoked •An inactive lifestyle •High blood pressure, heart disease or other vascular disease •Trouble walking •Pain in the legs or feet.

Helping Doctors Help Patients Stop Smoking (NAPSA)—To help protect you and your family from tobacco-related death and disease, researchers from Legacy®, a national public health organization dedicated to building a world where anyone can quit smoking, recommend two actions: stop smoking or never start. If you do smoke or use tobacco, speak to your doctor about quitting smoking. A survey of more than 3,146 adults in the U.S. conducted by Legacy discovered that more than one in 10 smokers have concealed their smoking status from a health care provider—nearly half of them stated it was because they are ashamed that they smoke. Another reason for not disclosing this important information to a medical professional: two-thirds surveyed who did not disclose their smoking status reported not wanting to be lectured about smoking. Fortunately, health care professionals such as doctors, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dentists and pharmacists can help smokers by bringing up the subject with patients. To assist with that, Legacy and Pfizer have developed a downloadable, user-friendly guide for health care providers to help them discuss smoking and tobacco use with their patients. Here are hints to help: •Talk openly about smoking. Ask every patient if they smoke. This may open the door to successful intervention. •Be positive and encouraging. Smokers are often dealing with shame or fear of quitting. Congratulate the smoker on the decision to quit and reiterate how you

Most smokers want to quit. Their doctors can help. are there to help them on their journey. •Encourage smokers not to give up. Smoking is a chronic, relapsing medical condition; the average smoker tries to quit 6–9 times in their lifetime. Remind smokers that quitting is difficult, but can be attainable. •Make sure smokers understand smoking for what it really is: a treatable medical condition. •Suggest patients consider evidence-based treatments, such as over-the-counter or prescription medications, and refer them to counseling to help them quit. Patients can call the national toll-free quitline, (800)-QUIT-NOW, for free counseling or seek help from no-cost websites such as www.BecomeAnEX.org. •Arrange follow-up contact as necessary to try to prevent relapse. More than 45 million Americans currently smoke and an estimated 70 percent of them want to quit, but lack the tools to do so. Committing to quit is the crucial first step toward becoming smoke free. Speaking with your health care provider can help you during this process.

The Benefits Of The Fastest-Growing Type Of Life Insurance (NAPSA)—Life insurance has been around for hundreds of years, but one of the newest products in the market is becoming increasingly popular with consumers. Indexed universal life insurance is a flexible premium policy that credits interest based on the movement of a stock market index. These products offer the security of lifetime death benefit protection along with great flexibility through access to policy cash value. A few carriers introduced the first indexed universal life products in 1997. Just nine life insurance carriers offered the product at the start of 2005, but in the past couple of years that number has ballooned to 46. Sales of the product approached an all-time high of $800 million in 2011 alone, quite a contrast to the $667 million sold over the six-year period from 2000 through 2005. The reason? Indexed universal life is perfect for consumers seeking the middle ground in the risk continuum. It’s a product with more upside potential than traditional fixed universal life—especially in a low-interest rate environment—that also offers strong guarantees, eliminating downside market risk associated with a variable universal life product. Indexed universal life policy performance is typically linked, in part, to a major stock index such as the S&P 500. Generally, these policies include a cap on the upside movement of the index, typically ranging between 10 and 14 percent, as well as a minimum interest rate that is applicable should the index perform poorly during a particular period. “Consumer needs and preferences change, and so do market

You can get life insurance cove r a g e yo u c a n c o u n t o n — i n good times and bad. opportunities,” said president and CEO Chris Littlefield of Aviva USA, which has been the leading provider of indexed universal life since 2001. “Our indexed universal life products are battle tested through all conditions. During two of the worst bear markets in recent history [early 2000s and 2008–09], none of Aviva’s indexed universal life policyholders lost any accumulated value in their policies because of a declining stock market.” Through the first three quarters of 2011, the life insurance industry saw modest 5 percent growth. Indexed universal life sales, however, grew a whopping 38 percent over the same ninemonth period. The only other life insurance product hitting doubledigit sales increase during that time frame was whole life, with a 10 percent jump. “Relative to other products in the industry, indexed universal life is fairly new,” Littlefield said. “It’s the fastest-growing product in the life insurance business because its cash accumulation features, death benefit protection and flexibility are simply a great fit for many consumers.”

Look Of Love (NAPSA)—A glamorous spa provides a deceptively idyllic setting in “The Look of Love,” a delicious new mystery by New York Times bestselling author Mary Jane Clark. When the owner of Elysium, an exclusive spa and plastic surgery center, offers Piper Donovan an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles, she accepts. All she has to do is create a dazzling and unique wedding cake. The job also appeals to Piper because it will give her the time to sort out her feelings for handsome FBI agent Jack Lombardi. The ultraluxurious spa caters to the rich and famous in need of a little “refreshing”—a nip here, a tuck there, a little Botox, a little detox. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, Elysium seems picture perfect. But no sooner does Piper arrive than a guest is brutally murdered in one of the private bungalows. She soon discovers that beneath the glamorous surface of this idyllic oasis lies an ugly truth—and a cold-blooded plan for murder. The Associated Press has called Clark “one of the most talented storytellers around.” Like Piper Donovan, Clark has a mother who made customized cakes for the neighborhood kids when she was growing up. After a career at CBS News and writing 12 media thrillers, the author envisioned the Piper Donovan/Wedding Cake mystery series. Part of the appeal may be the great recipes the books include, such as this one for Icing on the Cupcake Cream-Cheese Frosting. ½ cup butter (1 stick), at room temperature 1½ cups cream cheese, also at room temperature

What’s the price of beauty? At one spa, it could be murder. 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 cups confectioners’ sugar Using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the butter, cream cheese and vanilla until smooth. Turn the mixer down to lowest speed and add the confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, until it’s completely combined and smooth. The series has also garnered positive reviews. Library Journal said that “Touches of humor keep the mystery light, the baking subplot keeps it cozy, and there is enough going on with family and Piper’s newly developing relationship to keep it real,” and Romantic Times gave it four stars. The book is available wherever books are sold. For more information, you can find Mary Jane Clark or Piper Donovan on Facebook or visit www.maryjaneclark.com.

A Dash Of This And A Pinch Of That (NAPSA)—We have all experienced it. You are at your favorite restaurant anticipating a great meal, but when you take your first taste, you realize something isn’t right. The chef was in a hurry and left out one of the key seasonings—salt. You reach for the saltshaker and sprinkle on some to adjust the taste to your liking. Or maybe you’ve had the opposite experience. Your meal arrives and it is way too salty so you send it back. Whether you knew it or not, the simple act of adjusting the seasoning is similar to what toxicologists routinely do—determining the right amount of an ingredient or chemical to use and predicting the effects of chemicals based on how much is used. Too little and it doesn’t do what it is intended to do. Too much and it is unpleasant or potentially harmful. This simple experiment also dictates the way we use chemicals in every aspect of our life, from the vitamins and drugs we take to maintain or improve our health, to the use of preservatives to prevent spoilage in food we eat or products we use. Understanding how the chemical is used is important but understanding the response is crucial. The question we need to ask about how much salt is too much is related to health effects, so measuring changes in blood pressure with increasing amounts of salt used may be the more critical thing to test. In each case, we are looking to relate the amount we used with the effects we experience in an attempt to find the right balance. The use of dose-response can also be used to predict effects on the environment. The amount of exhaust from the car you drive makes a difference in the concentration in the air in the commu-

Just as a little salt can make a big difference in your food, the amount is impor tant in many aspects of science, especially to a toxicologist. nity. In an urban setting, the number of cars is much greater and the concentration of automobile exhaust in the air would be expected to increase. If levels of exhaust in the air get too high, it becomes unpleasant and possibly unhealthy. The amount released and the effect on air quality is predicted based on the number of cars in an area (dose) and the health effects observed (response) and is used by government agencies such as the EPA to set community air quality standards. Both the dose and response are critical for this concept to be useful. Knowing how much we used without knowing the effect does us no good and knowing effects without knowing the amount that caused the effect is likewise not useful. However, together, these two elements provide us all with a powerful tool for making decisions that impact our health and environment.

Tips On Protection Against Harsh Weather ( N A P S A ) — Wi n t e r w e a t h e r depletes skin, but not merely because of low temperatures. Low humidity is equally to blame, so be sure to protect and replenish skin in the following ways: •A drop in temperature and humidity can lead to depleted, chapped, even painfully sore skin. •The first step: Visit a professional skin therapist for a personalized “baseline” assessment of the skin’s condition and needs. “A licensed skin therapist will examine the skin using visual cues, under magnification and her fingertips, while asking questions about your lifestyle and product routine,” explains Annet King, director of Global Education for The International Dermal Institute. “Dermalogica’s system for this examination and skin coaching session is called Face Mapping and it’s offered at no charge, at more than 7,000 locations across the U.S.A., with no obligation to purchase products.” •Cleanse with tepid water and a creamy liquid cleanser. Skip hot water and antibacterial soaps as they can damage skin. •Be aware that petroleumbased products may exacerbate dryness and don’t let skin “breathe.” •While aggressive scrubs can cause microlacerations to the skin, resulting in more water loss, microfine powder exfoliants are safe for even sensitive skin, gently loosening and lifting dulling cell debris from the surface without causing irritation. After cleansing and microfoliating, blot and pat skin to dry—don’t rub. •Artificial fragrances, especially in high-foaming bath and

Hyaluronic acid in serum form draws airborne moisture to the skin. Use it to layer beneath moisturizers to prevent dehydration. After bathing, apply body lotion to warm, damp, freshly cleansed skin. Add a few pumps of an aromatherapy massage oil to make your body lotion extra soothing and comforting. •Nourish and protect with botanicals. Bioactive moisturizing ingredients, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, avocado oil and vitamin E deliver soothing and hydrating lipids and hydrators to skin, even in rugged conditions.

School Choice Week Draws Parents And Kids (NAPSA)—Rich Thompson is among the thousands of parents who marched at the Georgia State Capitol on a cold day last January and plans to do the same later this month in pursuit of a dream for his children: educational freedom. Thompson, an Atlanta resident, has enrolled his two daughters in a charter school. But for him, it’s not enough. “I am for all forms for school choice, and I want more choices,” Thompson said. “If a charter school is good for a child, a parent should get that choice. But if it is a private school, a faith-based school, a special needs school— whatever the school—they should have that option, too.” Throughout most of America, most children only have the option of attending their neighborhood public school. Their school is assigned to them based on their parents’ address. Only those who are most fortunate and can afford a private or religious school can obtain another form of education. That’s why National School Choice Week launched in January 2011 and will occur again this year during the week of January 22—to raise awareness that most children cannot decide where they want to attend school, even if they have a particular need or interest. In 2011, more than 200 organizations partnered to host events large and small. Some hosted rallies, town hall meetings, movie screenings, concerts, expos, book clubs, cookouts and even a grandmas’ coffeehouse for charters—all to mark National School Choice Week. “Parents truly know what type of education is best for their kids,” Thompson added. “And school

Parents g enerally know what kind of schooling is best for their kids—and there’s a group that’s helping them get it. choice is not about a particular demographic but helping all kids. It’s about raising the bar. In my social circle, the traditional schools aren’t pushing kids where they need to go. They need to be challenged more.” In 2011, National School Choice Week made headlines throughout the country, including recognition by Al Roker on NBC’s Today Show, coverage on Fox News and an address from actor Bill Cosby. There were rallies and events in almost every state, including as far away as Hawaii and Alaska, as the message for more educational options reached 24 million Americans.

Seeing Smart From The Start (NAPSA)—What you do for your baby’s health in the first year of life can make a big difference for all the rest. For one thing, scheduling regular visits to the pediatrician is important. So is visiting an eye doctor. In fact, it’s estimated that one in 10 infants is at risk from undiagnosed eye or vision problems. The most critical stages of vision development occur in a child’s first year of life; therefore, optometrists across the United States are providing free, comprehensive eye and vision assessments for infants between 6 and 12 months of age through a public health program called InfantSEE. Since many eye and vision conditions don’t have symptoms that can be easily identified by a parent or during a well-baby checkup, a comprehensive eye assessment by an optometrist is imperative to check for conditions such as strabismus (crossed eyes), amblyopia (lazy eye) and retinoblastoma (eye cancer). “Many parents are surprised to learn that a child’s eyes are going through so many important developmental stages so early in life,” said Dr. Glen Steele, optometrist and chair of the InfantSEE committee. “It’s the ideal time to detect eye and vision problems before conditions worsen or cause developmental delays.” Optometrists have the clinical education, training and experience, as well as the instruments and resources, to provide noninvasive eye and vision assess-

A visit to the eye doctor can be vital to your baby’s vision. ments for nonverbal patients. A number of techniques are used, including tests to determine if the infant can fix his or her eyes on an object and follow it; to assess the infant’s control of eye movements; and to identify certain objects the baby prefers to look at and at what distances. The optometrist will also use lenses and a small light to assess how a baby’s eye responds to particular targets. An infant’s eyelids and tear ducts will also be checked, and once the baby’s eyes are dilated, the doctor will examine the inner eye. Detecting and correcting a vision issue as early as possible is the best way to ensure healthy eyes for the future. The American Optometric Association recommends that an infant’s first eye exam take place at 6 months of age. Unless problems are detected, the next exam should be at age 3, again before entering school and then yearly.

Good News For Pet Lovers Can Get Better (NAPSA)—There’s good news for people who love animals. The percentage of dogs and cats in homes adopted from shelters and rescue groups has risen from 27 to 29 percent in the last few years, while the number of healthy and treatable pets losing their lives for lack of a home has dropped from 3 million to 2.7 million. It would be even better news if that number dropped to zero. That’s the goal of The Shelter Pet Project, the national PSA campaign to encourage pet lovers to make shelters the first choice and desired way for acquiring companion animals. The television, radio, print, outdoor and Web public service ads direct audiences to visit www. theshelterpetproject.org, where they can search for a pet from a local shelter or rescue group, read adoption success stories and learn more about pet adoption. Approximately 17 million people will acquire a pet within the next year, but many remain undecided where they will acquire their pet. “Pets end up in shelters through no fault of their own— they are often victims of circumstance,” said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States. “If enough people in our nation choose adoption, we can eliminate the euthanasia of healthy and treatable pets in our country.” The campaign hopes to encourage people to adopt from shelters by explaining that “A person is the best thing to happen to a shelter pet.”

Each year, approximately 4 million pets are adopted. The Shelter Pet Project is the first animal welfare campaign that the Ad Council has undertaken in its 60-year history. The campaign was taken on in partnership with The Humane Society of the United States and Maddie’s Fund®. According to Maddie’s Fund president Rich Avanzino, “We are hopeful that the new ads will also inspire the 14 million animal lovers who have already adopted to tell their friends why shelters are the first and best places to go for a new four-legged family member.” The ads, created pro bono by Draftfcb, focus on the relationship between shelter pets and their owners by featuring pets observing their humans’ quirky yet lovable behaviors. “We are confident that the optimism of our message will resonate with the millions of potential adopters who are still out there and bring us even closer to our goal,” said Nick Paul, EVP, global chief growth officer, Draftfcb.

A Tough Competition For The Greatest Honor (NAPSA)—An Oscar nomination signifies that a movie is among the year’s best. Although the emblematic statuette stands just slightly above 13 inches, it reigns supreme as the motion picture industry’s greatest honor. The competition is tough. According to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a total of 265 films are eligible for consideration in the 2011 Academy Awards® competition. In the original movie score category alone, there are 97 musical scores from eligible feature-length movies in contention for nominations. Awards are presented for outstanding individual or collective efforts in up to 25 categories. Movie critics and cinephiles are already placing their bets on who will win Oscar gold, while the average movie buff may still have some serious catching up to do before making any educated predictions. In fact, ReelzChannel’s popular critic Leonard Maltin just issued “The 11 Best Films You May Have Missed In 2011.” But there’s good news for enthusiasts who want to join the fun. Without ever leaving the house, and with the push of a button, Movies on Demand on cable means they can discover or relive some of the finest films in cinematic history throughout the awards season.

“B” Smart About Lowering Cholesterol (NAPSA)—If you or someone you care about is among the one in six Americans the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is at risk for heart disease because of high blood cholesterol, you may be relieved to learn there are ways to reduce that risk. Cholesterol is a waxy, fatlike substance your body needs. If it builds up on your arteries, however, it can lead to heart disease and stroke. To prevent or reduce high cholesterol: •Eat a Healthy Diet. Avoid saturated fat, trans fats and dietary cholesterol. Other types of fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, can actually lower blood cholesterol levels. Eating fiber also helps. •Exercise Regularly. The Surgeon General says adults should engage in moderate-intensity exercise for at least 30 minutes most days. •Don’t Smoke. Smoking injures blood vessels and speeds up the hardening of the arteries. Secondhand smoke also increases risk. •Treat High Cholesterol. If you have high cholesterol, your doctor may prescribe medications such as statin drugs, bile acid sequestrants, fibrates and B vitamins. As an alternative to prescription medications, a pure and highly absorbable form of Pantethine (an active form of vitamin B5) has been found to be very effective in lowering cholesterol. A triple-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study showed that Pantesin, a nutritional supplement containing Pantethine, significantly increased HDL (good) cholesterol levels while lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and helped to maintain both levels in

Along with a form of vitamin B5, moderate to intensive exercise can help control cholesterol levels. a normal range even for people not on any other medication. Other studies have shown that each 1mg/dL reduction in LDL cholesterol lowers cardiovascular disease risk by 1 percent. What’s more, the supplement had no significant adverse events compared to placebo and, unlike statins, doesn’t lower CoQ10 levels. “Pantesin works at the cellular level and helps maintain balanced cholesterol levels,” explained John Rumberger, Ph.D., M.D., FACC. He’s professor of medicine and consultant in the Department of Cardiovascular Diseases at the Mayo Clinic, a founding member of the International Society of Atherosclerosis Imaging and a leading authority on cardiac and vascular imaging. “In addition, Pantesin helps maintain healthy blood lipid levels that are already within the normal range.” The supplement is manufactured by Kyowa Hakko Bio Co., Ltd. and can be found in a variety of dietary supplements.

Making Resolutions An Achievable Reality (NAPSA)—Most resolutions focus on living a healthier life—eating healthier, exercising more or being less stressed—but attempts to achieve that goal can lead to more stress and less success, found a recent survey by Braun Research. According to the survey, about one in five women (19 percent) admit they were not successful in sticking to their resolution to eat healthier and more than a third of women (36 percent) were not successful in attempting to exercise more. Two in five women (42 percent) admit they were not able to reduce their stress levels. Less than half of women (45 percent) stuck to their resolutions for three months or less while one in five (20 percent) only stuck to their resolutions for a month or less. Breaking such goals into more manageable steps may be the key, says Kathy Freston, author of “Healthy Living Conscious Eating.” Keeping it simple can make healthier eating a reality. She suggests these tips: Switch out milk for Silk in your cereal. Whenever you have cereal for breakfast, try switching delicious Silk ® Pure Almond ® Vanilla Almondmilk for your typical dairy milk. Not only will your hearty breakfast help keep you satisfied, but you’ll also enjoy an excellent source of calcium, vitamins D, B12 and antioxidant vitamin E. Eat an apple a day. Apples are rich in dietary fiber and a lower-calorie snack that can help fill you up. According to the USDA nutrient database, apples are low

One way to get the benefits of plant-based nutrition is to substitute almondmilk for typical dairy milk in your cereal. in sodium and contain a variety of essential nutrients including B vitamins, vitamin C, betacarotene, potassium and other minerals. Eat them chopped, whole or sliced but not juiced, as juice can have too much sugar and lacks fiber. Stay hydrated—drink 8 ounces of water, eight times a day. Water is crucial to your health as every system in your body depends on it. You can drink glasses of water or eat plant foods like fruits and vegetables that contain a lot of water. For example, oranges are 87 percent water and cucumbers are 95 percent water. For more information, visit www.Facebook.com/SilkUS.

John Deere Sets World Record With Combine Constructed From Canned Food

This full-sized combine is the largest sculpture ever built of canned food—all of which was donated to needy families. (NAPSA)—It’s a new world record! John Deere’s Project “Can Do” created a full-sized combine made entirely from food—308,448 cans of food and 11,268 bags of food, to be exact. According to Guinness® World Records, that’s a new record for the largest sculpture ever built from canned food. The combine can-food sculpture, which is 60 ft. wide, 80 ft. long, 16 ft. tall and weighs approximately 170 tons, recognizes the vital role America’s farmers play in feeding the world. The sculpture depicts John Deere’s new S-Series Combine harvesting corn and showcases how new equipment and technologies are helping farmers meet the growing world demand for food. The can sculpture was built November 12–17 by a team of 450 John Deere volunteers, including employees, retirees, employee families and friends. The can-food sculpture took more than 1,800 hours to build and contains more than 15 different kinds of canned food, as well as 11,268 bags of popcorn, peas and beans. The sculpture was on display at the John Deere Pavilion in Moline, Ill., until December 12. “Project ‘Can Do’ gave our employees, retirees and their families a tremendous sense of accomplishment and pride in being part of this goodwill effort,” says Nicole Schneider, project co-leader/ copywriter for John Deere Ag & Turf Division. “We are all thrilled with the success of this project

and that all the food was donated to help those in need. In fact, for every volunteer who worked on the build, one person in need will be fed for one year with all the donated food.” Richard Williamson, project coleader/art director for John Deere Ag & Turf Division, says the project is considered a zero-landfill project with all of the building materials being recycled or reused. In addition, he credits several organizations for supporting the company’s efforts to create the world’s largest can-food sculpture. “The project wouldn’t have been possible without technical help from a number of organizations,” Williamson adds. “Those include Canstruction®, Inc., which organizes canstruction competitions worldwide; the Chicago architectural firm RTKL, Inc., that led the design and construction of the project; and Hy-Vee Food Stores, which helped source and deliver all the cans of food.” During the construction phase of the project, John Deere fans from around the world participated by designing “virtual cans” and submitting them via the John Deere Facebook page. Photographs and videos about the project and its construction can be found at www.Facebook.com/JohnDeere. On December 12 all the food was donated to River Bend Foodbank, which serves families in the Quad Cities and 22 counties in Iowa and Illinois.

When It Comes To Anti-Aging Skin Care, Don’t Forget The Body (NAPSA)—While most antiaging efforts focus on putting your best face forward, there’s no reason to forget the rest of your skin. Your face is not the only part of your body that exhibits signs of aging. Fortunately, nourishing and replenishing the skin on your body can help fight the effects of aging and result in a smoother, slimmer and more toned appearance. Skin Care On Several Fronts “The skin on the body changes as we age. It loses structural proteins, contributing to a loss of smoothness and firmness. Additionally, circulation becomes hampered and skin lacks its youthful moisture content with age,” said Helen Knaggs, Ph.D., Vice President of Global Research and Development for Nu Skin. “This all leads to the skin on the body sagging and looking old, which is a real aging concern for all people.” Lifestyle changes can help fight the signs of aging. While topical treatments are also essential, how you deliver topical ingredients to the skin matters. That’s where the latest technology can really be helpful— by delivering anti-aging nutrients where they are most needed. Take Advantage of Technology New developments in technology, such as the ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa, can improve healthy skin in a highly effective way by assisting with ingredient delivery to the skin. The latest spa instrument, created by Nu Skin, uses unique pulsating galvanic technology to apply ageLOC Body Shaping Gel, a cosmetic gel that works with the spa. The pulsating galvanic current maximizes the anti-aging effects of the product on the arms, abdomen, buttocks and thighs, by purifying, refreshing and smoothing skin to provide a slimmer,

Thanks to the latest anti-aging science, you can give yourself a spa body treatment at home using a handheld instrument that uses galvanic technology to target the sources of aging. more toned appearance. “In less than four weeks you can already see the difference, you can really see how much tighter my skin appears,” said Ann Houghteling, a Nu Skin distributor and participant in the Nu Skin’s ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa clinical trials. ageLOC technology helps to positively influence the appearance of the skin on the body to look slimmer, smoother and firmer. With a self-adjusting current, lighted display, and audio indications, it’s easy to use at home. Firmer Skin The ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa is paired with ageLOC Body Shaping Gel that improves the appearance of skin’s firmness. The complementary daily follow-up topical, ageLOC Dermatic Effects Body Countouring Lotion, contains ingredients that help inhibit fat production, stimulate fat breakdown and reduce the appearance of fat and cellulite while smoothing and moisturizing the skin, helping take years off of skin’s appearance.

Changes Impacting Your Tax Return This Year (NAPSA)—Three out of four taxpayers received a refund from Uncle Sam last year, averaging $2,805. This year’s amount should be about the same, thanks to a few major tax law changes expiring or added during 2011. Although your bottom line may change little, there are changes you should be aware of for this year’s tax return. “Unless lawmakers extend them, this will be the last year to claim several wellknown tax breaks,” according to TaxACT spokesperson Jessi Dolmage. “Take advantage of them w h i l e y o u s t i l l c a n . Wi t h 2 0 1 2 being an election year, it’s anyone’s guess as to what changes could be in store for next year’s return.” Before you do your taxes, read this summary of the more notable changes that may affect your federal return this year. •The filing deadline is Tuesday, April 17, 2012, because April 15 is a Sunday and Washington, D.C., is recognizing Emancipation Day on April 16. Don’t use the later deadline as an excuse to procrastinate, though. When you rush, you’re more likely to make mistakes that could cost you money and time. Furthermore, filing, paying or providing information late will result in IRS penalties that have increased this year. •Your 2011 tax return could be your last chance to claim one of the credits for energy-efficient home improvements as well as deductions for tuition and fees, educator expenses, mortgage insurance premiums, and the option to include your state and local sales taxes paid as an itemized deduction (in lieu of state and local income taxes paid). •The Making Work Pay Tax Credit and Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit (unless it was a new fuel-cell vehicle) that you could claim last year have expired. The Making Work Pay Ta x C r e d i t w a s e s s e n t i a l l y r e placed by the payroll tax holiday for 2011, which employees and the self-employed already received in 2011 paychecks through a reduction in FICA-OASDI Social Security taxes. Unlike the Making Work Pay Tax Credit, employees who benefited from the payroll tax holiday don’t need to claim it on this year’s tax return. •T h e a m o u n t o f t h e H e a l t h Coverage Tax Credit decreased to 72.5 percent for qualified health insurance coverage received between March and December 2011.

O n l i n e a n d d ow n l o a d a b l e t a x preparation programs make navigating tax law changes easy. •If you converted a traditional IRA to a designated Roth IRA in 2010 or rolled over a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA, but did not report the taxable amount on your 2010 tax return (due April 2011), you must report half the amount on this year’s return and the other half on your 2012 return. Details are available in IRS Publication 575 at www.irs.gov. •Amounts for standard mileage, standard deductions, personal exemptions and the Alternative Minimum Ta x have increased. Note that there are different standard mileage rates for miles driven before July 1 and after June 30. Details about all increases and other tax law changes can be found in IRS Publication 17. Online and downloadable tax preparation programs make navig a t i n g t a x l a w c h a n g e s e a s y. When choosing your software, Dolmage reminds you to carefully weigh your options, especially if you’re using a free solution. “Make sure it covers your tax situation. Many free federal products only cover simple returns, like Form 1040EZ returns. Most taxpayers need forms and schedules that are only included in overpriced solutions.” Dolmage says TaxACT Free Federal Edition is for simple and complex returns, including those with itemized deductions and income from self-employment, investments, rental properties and farms. TaxACT also includes free federal e-filing, guarantees for maximum refund and accuracy, and unlimited free tax help via e-mail.

The Lessons That Last All Year Long by Lamar Vest, President of American Bible Society (NAPSA)—The most important lesson learned during Christmas can illuminate our lives all year long. That lesson is that God cares so much about us that He showed up among us. Jesus was born into the same world that you and I live in today. Jesus was born to a broke teenage mother. He was born into an occupied nation ruled by outsiders. He was born in a world that was not so merry—the diseased were outcasts, women were stoned at even the suspicion of impropriety, and children were senselessly slaughtered. Some time in the past two thousand years, we’ve forgotten the reality of Jesus’ birth—its stark juxtaposition of joy and pain. We witness the glittering side of the holiday in all the bright displays, in the commercials on every channel and the songs that permeate public spaces. But the pain is there just below the surface. Just beneath the glitter and the ever-cheerful tunes, we hurt again with the news of another police officer killed in the line of duty; news of another trusted coach accused of assaulting another innocent child. Stories of women on the other side of the world whose repeated rapes are perpetrated as another senseless act of another senseless war. So much of the pain is more personal and hits much closer to home.

According to Dr. Lamar Vest, president of American Bible Society since 2009, “As American Bible Society approaches 200 years of Bible ministry, I find its mission and message more critical than ever for today’s complex world.” A friend is rejected for that much-needed, much-prayed-for organ transplant. A neighbor is losing his house to foreclosure. Jesus wasn’t born into a utopian society to well-to-do parents. He was born right here among us. So He gets it when you hurt. He feels it when anger wells up in you because of life’s injustices. He grieves right along with you through your losses and discouragements. He lived it, so He gets it. That’s the Jesus of the Bible. There’s much more to Jesus than just a perfect baby born in a perfect manger on a perfectly silent night. I challenge everyone to get to know the real Jesus who came into the real world for the sake of real people. Why not read what happened after the manger? His story is as close as the nearest Bible.

Dr. Lamar Vest is the President and CEO of the American Bible Society (ABS) and author of five books. Under Dr. Vest's leadership, the 195year-old Society is working to deliver Scripture where it is most needed including anytime, anywhere access through MP3, web, e-mail and mobile technologies. Headquartered in Manhattan, ABS exists to make the Bible available to every person in a language and format that each can understand and afford, so all people may experience its life-changing message. One of the nation's oldest nonprofit organizations, today's ABS provides interactive, high- and low-tech resources enabling first-time readers and seasoned theologians alike to engage with the best-selling book of all time.

Potholes Pose Plenty Of Problems (NAPSA)—They lurk on rural highways and city streets, ready to cost you time, trouble and money. They’re potholes, and they occur when water permeates the pavement—usually through a crack from wear and tear of traffic—and softens the soil beneath it, creating a depression in the surface of the street. While most drivers know immediately when they hit a pothole, what they often don’t know is if their vehicle has been damaged in the process. To help determine if hitting a pothole has hurt your vehicle, watch for the following warning signs: •Loss of control, swaying when making routine turns, bottoming out on city streets or bouncing excessively on rough roads. These are indicators that the steering and suspension may have been damaged. The steering and suspension are key safetyrelated systems. Together, they largely determine your car’s ride and handling. Key components are shocks and struts, the steering knuckle, ball joints, the steering rack and box, bearings, seals and hub units, and tie rod ends. •Pulling in one direction, instead of maintaining a straight path, and uneven tire wear. These symptoms mean there’s an alignment problem. Proper wheel alignment is important for the life span of tires and helps ensure safe handling. •Low tire pressure, bulges or blisters on the sidewalls or dents in the rim. These problems will be visible and should be checked out

Don’t let your car go to pot: If you hit a pothole, have a professional check out the vehicle. as soon as possible as tires are the critical connection between your car and the road in all sorts of driving conditions. “Hitting a pothole can cause plenty of problems—damaging tires, wheels, steering and suspension, wheel alignment and more. If you’ve hit a pothole,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council, “it’s worth having a professional technician check out the car and make the necessary repairs to ensure safety and reliability.” The Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers.

Ushering In The Era Of Modern Agriculture (NAPSA)—Two North Dakota farmers tinkering in a shed assembled the prototype of the first self-propelled sprayer of its kind—a high-speed, low-clearance, self-propelled sprayer for agricultural use—more than half a century ago. Little did they realize their invention would revolutionize agriculture and become a mainstay on more North American farms than any other sprayer in its class. It took about three years of tinkering for brothers John and Jake Kirschmann to put together the first “SpraCoupe.” It was, granted, an odd-looking machine, looking like a small airplane fuselage without the wings, with the operator comfortable in the cockpitlike cab with dedicated controls. The original prototype still exists and is on display at the AGCO assembly plant in Jackson, Minn. Once it was perfected, they sold the newfangled sprayer to farmers on a small scale. Recognizing a good thing, it wasn’t long before the agricultural equipment industry caught up with these innovative brothers. The rights and design of this new machine were purchased by several influential equipment companies. Today, the SpraCoupe continues to be manufactured and sold by a leading manufacturer and marketer of advanced farming equipment, including tractors, dry and liquid application floaters and sprayers, combines and other essential farming equipment. “The SpraCoupe was a first in many ways—it was the world’s first low-clearance, high-speed, self-propelled applicator of its kind for fertilizer and chemicals and it was much easier to use and more efficient than tractormounted spray booms,” says David Webster, AGCO Application Equipment director of sales. “It burned considerably less fuel, yet

A clever couple of brothers created a new kind of farm machine that revolutionized agriculture. covered acres so much faster, allowing farmers to manage more acres and different types of crops.” Webster says the SpraCoupe was a bellwether for what was coming in American agriculture— fewer producers farming larger tracts. “Today in the United States, farmers comprise less than 2 percent of the overall population and that percentage continues to shrink,” Webster explains. “Yet this small percentage of farmers is able to feed and clothe the remaining 98 percent of the population. It is because of equipment like the SpraCoupe that this is possible.” The resulting evolutionary chain in farm application equipment led to the much larger, even higher-volume monster application rigs, such as the TerraGator and RoGator, that evolved to meet the demands of today’s high-intensity agriculture. There are SpraCoupes still running today that are 20 to 30 years old, though farmers and professional applicators continue to purchase new ones. Besides being popular in the U.S. and Canada, the machine can be seen working farmland in South America, Europe, Russia, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The SpraCoupe has continued to evolve to meet the special demands of today’s agriculture but the basic design in many ways has stayed the same. You could say that the Kirschmann brothers got it right the first time.

Aging In Place, What Americans Want (NAPSA)—Many Americans prefer to remain in their own homes as they age, but that may mean preparing for long-term care, if needed. Long-term care is ongoing assistance with basic activities of daily living—eating, bathing, dressing, etc. The need often stems from disability, chronic illness or cognitive impairment (like Alzheimer ’s disease) and is far more common than most think. Once synonymous with nursing home care, today, people needing long-term care have more options. With the right support and tools, particularly quality care provided by formal and informal caregivers, people are now able to remain where they most want to be—at home. Because of the wide array of options, we have a great deal of freedom when it comes to getting care. Unfortunately, few plan ahead and save enough money to pay for the services that they may need or want. To help federal employees and their qualified relatives, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management sponsors the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP). Here is a look at some of the FLTCIP’s most popular benefits (a detailed listing of benefits is at www.LTCFEDS.com/programdetai ls/index.html): •Services by formal and informal caregivers at home reimbursed up to 100 percent of the daily benefit amount. When informal care is provided by family, services are reimbursed up to 500 days in an enrollee’s lifetime. •The stay-at-home benefit allows for care planning visits, modifications to your home (e.g., a wheelchair ramp or bathtub handlebars), emergency medical response systems, durable medical equipment, caregiver training, and home safety checks. •Respite services are covered

Long-term care is ongoing assistance with the basic activities of daily living, such as eating, bathing and dressing. up to 30 times your daily benefit amount per calendar year. This means that if a friend or family member is providing your care, the FLTCIP will pay for formal services so that your caregiver can take a break. Keep in mind that even when home care is provided by a licensed professional, a small amount of informal assistance may determine whether you can stay at home. Being able to reimburse your informal caregiver can make a difference. So what can you do to plan ahead? First, recognize the potential for long-term care needs and research how the cost of care could impact your future income and retirement savings. Next, research your options. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Clearinghouse for Long-Term Care Information at www.long termcare.gov and the Online Consultant Tool at www.LTCFEDS. com/oct are excellent resources for information about paying for longterm care. To learn more about the FLTCIP, visit www.LTCFEDS. com, or call 1-800-LTC-FEDS (1800-582-3337) (TTY 1-800-8433557), where a certified long-term care insurance consultant will speak with you about your particular situation, coverage options and the application process, and answer any questions you have.

Start Your New Year Off On The Right Track (NAPSA)—The holiday season often means an abundance of parties and festive food—but the combination of irresistible treats and irregular schedules may cause digestive disturbances. To start your New Year off on the right track, here are a few tips from Registered Dietitian Tara Gidus: •D o n o t c h e w w i t h y o u r mouth open or ingest your meal too quickly: Swallowing large amounts of air can cause digestive disturbances. •Don’t lie down after you e a t : Ly i n g d o w n c a n i n h i b i t digestion. •Have smaller meals: Your stomach has to work overtime to digest large amounts of food at one time. •Eat a high-fiber diet: Diets high in fiber and rich in whole grains, vegetables, legumes and fruits can improve digestive health. •Limit food that is high in fat: Try to pair fatty foods with high-fiber foods to make them easier to digest. •Eat on a schedule: Consuming meals and snacks on a regular schedule can keep your digestive system on track. Eat something light before you go to a party to prevent overeating. •Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to help dissolve soluble fiber and help items pass through your digestive tract more easily. •Exercise regularly: Regular exercise keeps foods moving through your digestive tract. •Manage stress: Too much stress can cause your digestive system to go into overdrive.

Protect Your Business: Make A Plan (NAPSA)—Despite the many risks small businesses face, many remain unprepared to handle the unexpected. One way they can minimize their risks is to create a Business Continuity Plan. Scary Numbers Only 6 percent of small-business owners say they’re not at all confident about being adequately protected against a disaster, according to a survey conducted by Travelers at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce America’s Small Business Summit. That same survey found that 44 percent of small businesses are operating without any type of business continuity plan, a plan designed to keep the business operating after an unexpected event. That false sense of security and lack of preparation could easily spell disaster for a business. Onequarter of small businesses hit by a major disruption never reopen their doors, according to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety. Other data suggests that even if businesses did reopen, most wouldn’t fully recover. The Solution A strategic business continuity plan, combined with securing the right insurance coverage, is critical in making sure a business can continue to thrive after a disaster. Policies to consider include a standard multiperil or business owner’s policy and business interruption coverage. Business owners should also talk to their agents about additional options like flood coverage.

A lack of preparation could easily spell disaster for a business. Formulating a business continuity plan, depending on the complexity of the business, may only take a few hours and can help ensure a business lasts years after a disaster. The plan should include everything from important phone numbers of service providers to locations of backup data. For help getting started, business owners can visit www.travelers.com for free tips on developing a plan. These plans can provide the necessary road map to assist in handling a crisis, but they work best when communicated effectively and frequently with employees. Once a business continuity plan is developed, owners should walk employees through different scenarios that can significantly affect a business and explain how to manage the consequences. Small businesses play a vital role in helping the nation’s economic recovery. Properly protecting a small business through risk management is essential to its long-term survival.

Comprehensive Eye Exams Important In Detecting Diabetes (NAPSA)—Here’s an eye-opening fact: With approximately 8.3 percent of the U.S. population affected by diabetes, it’s quickly becoming one of the most serious health issues currently facing both adults and children. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), someone is diagnosed with diabetes every 17 seconds. Nevertheless, many people may not be aware that a comprehensive eye exam can often lead to early detection. One of the potential symptoms of diabetes is blurred vision—and without proper health care, diabetes can result in the progression of more serious vision complications, such as diabetic retinopathy and related vision loss. The CDC also notes that approximately 11 percent of U.S. adults with diabetes have some sort of visual impairment, and diabetic retinopathy is projected to affect 16 million people with diabetes by the year 2050. Rates of diabetes are even higher among certain ethnic minorities. Among African Americans, the prevalence of diabetes is more than 70 percent higher than it is among non-Hispanic whites, and the frequency of diabetic retinopathy is 50 percent higher, according to the American Diabetes Association. Hispanics experience diabetes at a rate of three times the general population and are more likely to develop the condition and related complications at an earlier age, says the Cleveland Clinic Department of Patient Education and Health Information. Asian Americans are more susceptible to type 2 diabetes, the Ohio State University Medical

Regular, comprehensive eye exams can help you to maintain healthy sight and alert your eye doctor of any signs of diabetes or other health issues. Center reports, which can lead to heightened vision-related damage from UV exposure, reduced contrast sensitivity and increased light sensitivity. Fortunately, there are steps you can take. Optometrist Dr. Brian Chou, of EyeLux Optometry in San Diego, points out the importance of proper eyecare and eyewear when managing diabetes. “There is no question that diabetes can lead to serious vision complications,” explains Dr. Chou. “Regular, comprehensive eye exams can help you to maintain healthy sight overall and can alert your eye doctor of any underlying signs of diabetes and other health issues. Adaptive lenses, such as Transitions lenses, can help prevent squinting, reduce glare and block 100 percent of UV rays— keeping your eyes protected from UV exposure.” Learn More For more information and to locate an eyecare professional nearby, visit www.transitions.com.

Your Independent Foreclosure Review (NAPSA)—Did you face foreclosure in 2009 or 2010? If so, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency says you may be eligible for a free independent review of your case. Independent foreclosure reviews let borrowers who faced foreclosure on their primary residences between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010 request reviews of their cases if they believe they suffered financial injury as a result of errors in the foreclosure processes of these servicers: America’s Servicing Company, Aurora Loan Services, Bank of America, Beneficial, Chase, Citibank, CitiFinancial, CitiMortgage, Country-Wide, EMC, EverBank/Everhome, Freedom Financial, GMAC Mortgage, HFC, HSBC, IndyMac Mortgage Services, MetLife Bank, National City, PNC, Sovereign Bank, SunTr u s t M o r t g a g e , U . S . B a n k , Wachovia, Washington Mutual, and Wells Fargo. The reviews will determine whether individuals suffered financial injury and should receive compensation or other remedies due to errors or other problems during their home foreclosure process. The reviews were ordered by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in April 2011 after the federal regulators found unsafe and unsound mortgage servicing and foreclosure practices among these large, federally regulated mortgage servicers. Situations that may have led to financial injury include, but are not limited to: •The mortgage balance at the time of the foreclosure action was more than you actually owed. •Fees charged or mortgage payments were inaccurately calculated, processed or applied. •You were doing everything a modification agreement required

If you faced foreclosure in 2009 or 2010, the government may have good news for you. but the foreclosure sale still happened. •The foreclosure action occurred while you were protected by bankruptcy. •A foreclosure proceeded on a military member in violation of Servicemembers Civil Relief Act protections. More than 4 million letters were mailed to potentially eligible borrowers with request-for-review forms and instructions on how to complete and return them. The form lets you describe what you think went wrong. Simply answer the questions to tell your story, include any additional documents you think relevant and return the form by April 30, 2012. If you believe you are eligible and have not received a form, you can request one from (888) 9529105, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. (ET) and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET). For additional information and answers to basic questions about the review process, visit www. IndependentForeclosureReview. com. Reviews are conducted by independent consultants working under the direction of the federal regulators and may take several months to complete.

Get In The Game: Vote For A Super Bowl Ad (NAPSA)—The Super Bowl is much more than a football game; it has become a cultural phenomenon, with office pools sizing up the outcome and family and friends gathering to cheer on their favorite team. But people don’t just tune in for the game. One of the most important elements of Super Bowl Sunday is not the on-field action—it’s the commercials that spark the most water cooler talk the next day. In fact, fans look forward to the creative ads that air on Super Bowl Sunday so much that it has ignited a new trend in advertising—consumer-generated TV commercials. The amount of talent and creativity among consumers has been so impressive that the Doritos brand has turned over the Super Bowl stage to its fans for the past five years. For two of the last three years, a consumer-generated Doritos ad from the Crash the Super Bowl contest has taken the top spot in the USA TODAY Ad Meter, a rating system that tracks the responses of viewers to ads during the broadcast. As a result, the brand has awarded the ad creators with millions of dollars in bonus cash prizes. Finalists have gone on to receive commercial work, Hollywood representation and once-ina-lifetime opportunities. This year, in addition to seeing their ads air during the Super Bowl XLVI broadcast, two winning finalists will also receive the most life-changing contest grand prize to date: a guaranteed opportunity to work on a future Doritos project with one of the hottest entertain-

Plus, there’s a $1 million bonus cash prize if either of the winning finalist ads scores No. 1 on either the USA TODAY Ad Meter or the recently announced USA TODAY Facebook Super Bowl Ad Meter. Two of the five consumer-generated Doritos finalist ads will see airtime during the big game, a n d i t ’s u p t o c o n s u m e r s t o c h o o s e o n e of them. Visit www.crashthesuperbowl.com and vote for your favorite today. The Doritos brand will give away one $10,000 cash prize to a fan who voted in the contest every time the total number of votes across all voting platforms reaches a 100,000-vote milestone. They will continue giving away these $10,000 cash prizes at each 100,000-vote milestone until they reach 1 million votes across all voting platforms and have given away a maximum of $100,000.

Recognizing The Value Of Nutrition In Health (NAPSA)—The last century has seen a greater understanding of the role of nutrition in living a healthier lifestyle. As a result, one organization is changing its name to more accurately reflect that vital connection. The American Dietetic Association, the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals, has officially changed its name to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has been in existence since 1917 as the American Dietetic Association, after working to feed the troops healthfully during World War I. Protecting the public’s health is the highest priority of the Academy and our members, and our new name complements our focus: the nutritional wellbeing of the American public,” said registered dietitian and Academy President Sylvia EscottStump. The new name promotes the strong science background and academic expertise of the academy’s members, primarily registered dietitians. Nutrition science underpins wellness, prevention and treatment. “By adding nutrition to our name, we communicate our capacity for translating nutrition science into healthier lifestyles for

Registered dietitians are the most qualified food and nutrition experts. everyone,” said Escott-Stump. “Keeping dietetics supports our history as a food- and sciencebased profession.” Whether it’s planning nutritious meals for children in day care centers or schools, teaching individuals with diabetes about managing their blood sugar or saving lives with complex nutritional interventions after surgery, registered dietitians are the best qualified nutrition experts. The Academy’s award-winning website remains www.eatright.org. The colorful Eat Right logo will stay a part of the organization’s graphic identity. In addition, the ADA Foundation has become the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation. “While our name has changed to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, we still have the same mission, the same powerful Eat Right message, and are still bringing the same quality nutrition advice to the table as we have for nearly 100 years,” said EscottStump.

SAVE YOUR CAN TABS!!!!! RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE COLLECTS THESE ALUMINUM TABS AND USES THEM TO RAISE MONEY. By taking your tabs off (any aluminum tab, beer, soda, soup, pet food, etc.) they will be sent to Ronald McDonald House in Springfield, Massachusets. They run a program which raises about $20,000 a year from selling the aluminum from these tabs.

It costs you nothing. It will go a long way to helping kids with cancer.

Your dream home is only a click away!

You can drop your tabs off at either the Haverstraw Ambulance Corps, Ronnie’s Hot Dog Wagon on Route 9W at the Lookout in Haverstraw, or at the RT 59 Beverage Discount Center in Central Nyack by the 303 Interchange.
