elcome to Capitol Steps. This is our 30th year and we are, of course, delighted to be here in the Big Apple. Please turn off your cell phone make also make note of all exits…and remember, in case of an emergency wait for instructions from our Italian cruise ship captain!” Hello…the Capitol Steps are now in session and now you are in for an uproarious 1½ hours of fun, fun, fun. Remember, with me, how this fabulous group of talented comics evolved. Their first meeting was to plan a pseudo passion play for a United States Senators’ Christmas Party. The Capitol Steps organizers were forced to change the theme. They could not find three virgins or an honest Senator. Since then, in various forms and venue’s ,all acrossAmerica, these geniuses of satire have entertained audiences from the performances first moment to the very final goodbye. Nobody in the political world escapes the scathing spoofing of the Capitol Steps. From President Obama to Mitt Romney, from Hillary Clinton to George W. Bush, from current Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano to Herman Cain to former Representative Anthony Weiner, their humorous scalpel carves a broad and hilarious path. Sarah Palin and Senator John McCain join with Vice-President Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi plus the Tea Party in being humorously harpooned by this “gang of five” with their very small but very effective facial costumes. Almost always the performers close the first act by conducting a class in “Lirty Dies”. Digest the first paragraph of this kooky word game. Then you can envision how funny the remainder is. “For the past 30 years The Capitol Steps have been poking fun at sordid scandals and stupid politicians and quite frankly what could be better? Let me say that again. Jadies and lentlemen, for the past yenty-eight tweers the Stapitol Ceps have been foking pun at sordid sandals and pupid stoliticians and fright quankly, butt could be wetter? Yes, butt could be wetter. Especially dese theys. I’m elling you, the fich and the ramos are getting into trig bubble everlair you wook. And in every wine of lurk. We’re the Stapitol Keps, so of course we tend to focus on the Pearled of Wolitics. And believe me, there are skenty of plandal there.” Keep your eye out for The Capitol Steps touring “gang” coming to where you live or anyplace within reach. Promise-you will never have a more entertaining evening. (This community service represents the views of Jules W. Rabin only)

Quick And Easy Steps To Keep Teeth Healthy And Clean (NAPSA)—A healthy smile is important to your overall look. After all, it is one of the first things most people notice. However, are you really doing everything you should to care for your pearly whites? Does your dentist or dental hygienist ever say that you have to floss more often? Most people brush their teeth every day but many simply don’t like to floss. Unfortunately, by skipping this important step, you risk serious dental issues, such as bad breath, gingivitis and even tooth loss. A good at-home oral hygiene routine should always include flossing. When you floss, you can get in between teeth to remove plaque where regular toothbrushing cannot reach. To make flossing easier, there have been recent introductions of new oral care tools that eliminate the need to use traditional string floss—among these are the Waterpik Water Flosser and the Sonicare AirFloss. Each is easy to use, but when clinically tested, the Waterpik Water Flosser was the clear winner. According to a recently published study in The Journal of Clinical Dentistry, the Waterpik Water Flosser was significantly more effective than the Sonicare AirFloss at removing plaque and

Research suggests taking proper care of your teeth and gums is easier than many people realize. reducing gingivitis. During the four-week study, subjects were given either product, plus a manual toothbrush to use as part of their daily oral care routine. The study found that the Water Flosser was 80 percent more effective than the AirFloss for gingivitis reduction and 70 percent more effective at removing plaque. So for anyone who has had “the talk” with his or her dental professional or simply does not like to floss, the Waterpik Water Flosser offers an easy and more effective way to improve oral health.

Five Tips For Making The Most Of Your Medicare Advantage Plan In 2012 ( N A P S A ) — Wi t h 2 0 1 2 w e l l under way, many Medicare beneficiaries have some experience using their health care benefits and may be starting to realize what they like—and dislike— about their coverage. By keeping a few points in mind and making some adjustments in how they access care, beneficiaries could enjoy improved health and more money in their pockets in 2012. “For the nearly 13 million beneficiaries enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, taking stock of the benefits available to them will help ensure that they’re making the most of their coverage this year,” said Dr. Rhonda Randall, chief medical officer of UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement, which serves more than 9 million members through its portfolio of Medicare plans. “Many Medicare beneficiaries are pleasantly surprised when they discover all the ways their plan can help them stay healthy and improve their quality of life.” According to Dr. Randall, the following tips can help enrollees maximize their coverage in 2012: 1. Leverage the plan’s additional benefits. Medicare Advantage plans cover all of the preventive services covered by Original Medicare, such as certain cancer screenings and an annual wellness checkup, usually at no additional out-of-pocket cost to the member. Many Medicare Advantage plans also provide additional benefits that can help beneficiaries maintain or enhance their health, such as gym memberships, disease management programs and 24/7 access to registered nurses. 2. Take advantage of cost savings on prescription drugs. Beneficiaries enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan that includes drug coverage should check their plan details to see if they could save money on their prescriptions, such as by using mail-order pharmacy benefits, switching to generic or lower-tier drugs or taking advantage of special programs available with some plans.

P ro a c t i v e a p p ro a ch t o h e a l t h care coverage can lower costs, enhance health. 3. Stay in network as much as possible. Most Medicare Advantage plans negotiate special pricing with doctors and pharmacies, which translates into lower costs for members. Beneficiaries should use in-network doctors and pharmacies to help save money. 4. L o o k f o r e x t r a p l a n d i s counts on everyday health care items and services. Medicare Advantage enrollees can rack up valuable savings by taking advantage of discounts on things they already use, such as hearing aids. 5. P l a n y e a r l y h e a l t h c a r e expenses with the out-of-pocket maximum in mind. Unlike Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans are required to cap their members’ annual out-ofpocket expenses. In 2012, the maximum amount a Medicare Advantage enrollee can be asked to pay out of pocket for in-network medical services is $6,700. This cap on health care costs can give beneficiaries the peace of mind of knowing that expenses associated with an unexpected illness or hospitalization are limited. By taking a proactive approach to their health care coverage, beneficiaries can lower their costs and enjoy enhanced health and wellbeing in 2012. For ongoing updates, tips and reminders about Medicare, beneficiaries can visit MedicareMadeClear.com, “like” Medicare Made Clear on Facebook or follow @MedicareClear on Twitter.

Dealing With Opioid Painkiller Dependence (NAPSA)—Although, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, deaths from prescription painkillers have reached epidemic levels in the past decade, with more than 40 people in the U.S. dying each day, you can protect the people you care about. That’s vital, considering the report also revealed that nearly 12 million Americans misuse prescription painkillers yearly. It’s Not Just a Behavioral Problem For one thing, you should know that the American Society of Addiction Medicine has defined addiction as a chronic brain disease—it is not simply a behavioral problem. “Addiction to opioid painkiller medication is not a failure of personal will,” explained Mark Kraus, M.D., addiction medicine specialist and diplomat of the American Board of Addiction Medicine. “People dependent on opioid painkillers need to know there are effective medical treatment options available in the privacy of a physician’s office to help them overcome their addiction.” Doctors Have a Solution Opioid dependence does not discriminate and affects people of all ages and backgrounds. For many, like Lauren N., a young suburban mother, facing painkiller addiction was not what she or her family ever expected. After being prescribed opioid painkillers following surgeries and treatment for migraines, Lauren found herself unable to start the day without taking her dose of painkiller medication. Luckily, she discovered the option of being treated in a physi-

People who suffer from opioid dependence often face stigma and barriers that can make starting treatment seem like a daunting task. Many are reluctant to seek help because they think rehab facilities and methadone programs are the only options. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act is intended to help by expanding access to include treatments based in doctors’ offices. A doctor who is certified to treat opioid dependence can now prescribe medications that have been approved to help maintain patients in treatment and reduce opioid use by managing withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings. Where to Get Help Today, people have more options than ever, including a visit to www.TurnToHelp.com, a website that offers a simple screening tool to help individuals recognize addiction and a physician finder to help identify doctors who are specially trained in treating people with addiction to painkillers.

Turning On The Tap To Save Lives ( N A P S A ) — Wa t e r b o r n e i l l nesses are the second-leading cause of preventable childhood deaths in the world—killing almost 4,000 children every day. Fortunately, the UNICEF Tap Project is helping to provide safe, clean water to children around the world—and you can drink a glass to its success. D u r i n g Wo r l d Wa t e r We e k , March 19–25, dining patrons can pay $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free at participating restaurants. With $1, UNICEF can provide a child with access to clean, safe water for 40 days, or 40 children with access to safe water for one day. “In communities without access to a safe water source and adequate sanitation, disease can spread with lethal swiftness,” said President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Caryl Stern. “Today, for too many of the world’s children, clean water can mean the difference between life and death.” F o r t h e t h i r d y e a r, G i o r g i o Armani Fragrances returns as national sponsor of the UNICEF Tap Project as part of its Acqua for Life campaign, to raise awareness and funds to help UNICEF improve access to safe, clean w a t e r fo r c h i l d r e n w o r l d w i d e . During the month of March, the company will donate $1 for each Acqua di Giò for Men and Acqua di Gioia for Women spray cologne or gift set purchased in the U.S., and $1 for the first 100,000 people who “like” the Acqua for Life page on Facebook. Also, new to the program this year, for each 10-ml Acqua di Gioia Rollerball Eau de Parfum purchased in the U.S., the company will donate 100 percent of the retail sales price—up to $15 per item—to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, while supplies last. Since 2007, more than 10,000 UNICEF Tap Project volunteers have provided their time and creative solutions to build awareness and drive donations for water and sanitation programs in Belize, the

Medicine For Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (NAPSA)—The more than 13 million American adults who suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), one of the most common lung diseases in the U.S., and the people who care for them, may soon have more treatment options. New Medicines in Development That’s because America’s biopharmaceutical research companies are working on 54 new medicines to treat COPD, according to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). These new therapies are in clinical trials or under review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patient use. The Condition COPD is a serious, progressive lower respiratory disease that encompasses two main conditions—chronic bronchitis and emphysema—characterized by obstructed airflow to the lungs that interferes with normal breathing. People with COPD may be limited in their ability to work, exercise and even perform routine activities. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the number of patients with COPD is increasing. In addition to those who have been diagnosed with the disease, 12 million Americans likely have COPD without knowing it. The NIH says symptoms can include: •Constant coughing, sometimes called “smoker’s cough”; •Shortness of breath while doing activities you used to be able to do; •Feeling like you can’t breathe; •Not being able to take a deep breath; and •Wheezing.

Emerging scientific approaches to treating COPD offer new hope to improve and save lives. If you experience any of these, see your doctor. Early Detection Is Key “Early detection of COPD is imperative, as effective treatment and lifestyle changes can change the course and progression of this devastating disease,” said PhRMA President and CEO John J. Castellani. PhRMA’s mission is to advocate for public policies that encourage medical innovation and research into new medicines for patients by pharmaceutical and biotechnology research companies. America’s biopharmaceutical research sector is the global leader in medical innovation, with more than 300 new medicines approved by the FDA in recent decades. Researchers are currently studying more than 3,000 more compounds. Learn More For more information about the research, see www.phrma.org/ research/new-medicines-COPD.

Helping Your Pets Take A Bite Out Of Poor Health (NAPSA)—Dog owners who think a dog’s mouth is cleaner than a human’s are barking up the wrong tree—and they are not alone. In fact, according to a recent survey, many pet owners have beliefs about their pet’s health that are not accurate or grounded in science. For example, the study—commissioned by the Greenies brand, the maker of dental chews and treats for pets—found that almost half of pet owners believe that dogs’ mouths are cleaner than humans’ and that any type of chewing is good for a dog’s teeth. It also found that about 40 percent thought it was normal for their pets to have stinky breath. About one-third of pet owners believed that a dog’s saliva was capable of curing human wounds. “There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding a pet’s oral health,” said veterinary dental expert Dr. Jan Bellows, incoming president of the American Veterinary Dental College. “Dogs’ mouths are certainly not cleaner than a human’s. Dogs often carry a variety of germs and bacteria in their mouths that stem from buildup of plaque and tartar that can potentially make humans sick through contact with saliva.” The Right Kind of Chewing “Many pet owners also believe that any type of chewing is good for their dogs, but tooth fractures are a common occurrence in pets because teeth can only withstand a certain amount of pressure from hard objects before they break. When pets chew on inflexible items, such as bones, ice cubes or

According to a survey, almost half of pet owners believe that dogs’ mouths are cleaner than a human’s and that any type of chewing is good for a dog’s teeth. nylon toys, it can put them at risk for breaking a tooth. And while smelly breath in pets is common, pet owners who believe this is normal may be missing the signs of poor oral health or potential dental disease,” Dr. Bellows said. A Healthy Mouth Is Key A healthy mouth is essential to the overall well-being of pets, but misguided information about pet oral health can affect more than just your pet’s mouth. For proper pet oral health, veterinarians advise daily brushing or giving of Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC)–approved dental treats, and at least annual oral exams by a veterinarian with professional cleanings as recommended. “Pet owners who are knowledgeable about their furry companions’ oral health will avoid the pitfalls of commonly held myths and enable the best care for everyone’s well-being,” said Dr. Bellows.

Preparing For The Future (NAPSA)—It’s always best to plan in advance. Thelma Duggin, a former health industry CEO, knew this to be true in business and in life, but when it came to the life of her mother Elizabeth, advance planning was a pretty tough sell. Elizabeth was in her late 80s at the time and living alone in her Alabama home. Duggin sensed that her mother could use help doing light chores around the house. Her greatest concern, however, centered on Elizabeth’s overall care as she continued to age. Fortunately for Duggin, she had access to a program called Solutions for Caregivers, available through her workplace’s employee assistance program, that has nurses assess a family’s situation and needs, develop a care plan and discuss recommendations with the whole family. Duggin and her siblings, none of whom live in Alabama, arranged for Solutions for Caregivers to develop a care plan for Elizabeth. She was assigned a case manager named Kathy Hawk to work directly with Elizabeth at her home. The way Duggin saw it, “It’s better to do this before they need it.” But there was an issue. “Mom did not want it,” Duggin said. It turned out this simple step helped the whole family outpace a series of potential problems. When an illness placed Elizabeth in the hospital, she asked to receive care from her former physician. Kathy filled out the paperwork to enable that to happen. Elizabeth’s condition required her to receive care at

Older Americans can get a helping hand when they need one, even if family members are far away. a skilled nursing facility; Kathy rated different facilities and found one that most closely met Elizabeth’s needs. She took the reins when Elizabeth developed diabetes and, later, a blood clot. “It comes down to peace of mind for your loved one,” said Duggin. “You feel totally comfortable and confident. Kathy will pick up on things when she talks to our mother that we won’t. It’s been a lifesaver.” Now 91, Elizabeth remains active and actively involved with her family. This past Thanksgiving, Thelma Duggin, her two sisters and brother took Elizabeth to Jamaica, after getting Kathy’s OK. “Kathy did everything,” Duggin said. “[She located a] cardiologist, gave us a list of what to do, got [Elizabeth’s] glucose readings and blood tests. It’s almost like somebody is doing everything for you and you have the confidence that it will get done right.” Elizabeth now resides in assisted living. She talks with Kathy weekly and Kathy sends the family a weekly report. You can learn more at www. WhatIsSolutionsForCaregivers. com or by calling (877) 765-4473.

Four Easy Ways Drivers Can Save Hundreds In Vehicle Ownership Cost (NAPSA)—Caring for your car can put you on the road to savings. In fact, a savvy consumer can save hundreds of dollars a year on automotive expenses without buying a new car or changing his or her lifestyle. All it takes is a little time and research, and the good sense to choose better-performing products. Here are some easy ways to save money and have your current car last longer: Spend More to Save More Upgrading to one of today’s modern high-performance motor oils can make a meaningful improvement to your car ’s fuel economy and engine life. For instance, independent studies have documented that Royal Purple motor oil improves fuel economy by as much as 5 percent and can significantly reduce engine wear. Using high-performance synthetic motor oil, as opposed to conventional oils, also allows for more miles between oil changes, reducing maintenance costs and the amount of time spent out of service. You’ll pay a little more for premium motor oil, but the savings in fuel and reduced maintenance costs more than make up for the higher price. Find out more at www.royalpurple.com. Shop for the Best Rate One of the easiest ways to reduce the costs associated with your car is to shop around for insurance. Prices vary from company to company, so it pays to do your homework. Get at least three price quotes. You can call companies directly or access information on the Internet. Your state’s insurance regulator may also provide price comparisons.

Upgrading to the right high-performance motor oil can improve fuel economy. Other ways to reduce insurance costs can be found by visiting the Insurance Information Institute’s website at www2.iii.org/ individuals/autoinsurance/. Properly Inflate The U.S. Department of Energy reports that underinflated tires can increase fuel consumption by up to 3 percent. One study estimates that 50–80 percent of the tires traveling on U.S. roads are underinflated. Surprisingly, car owners could save up to 2 billion gallons of gas each year by properly inflating their tires. Keep it Clean A clogged air filter can increase fuel consumption by as much as 10 percent. Air filters keep impurities from damaging the interior of the engine, so replacing dirty filters will save gas and protect your engine. More tips to save money on fuel are available at www.fueleconomy.gov.

How To Decide If A Cat Is Right For You (NAPSA)—Cats can be loving, loyal, feisty or fierce—and if you saw the hit movie “Puss In Boots,” then you know one cat can embody all those traits and more. Adopting a cat can be a “purrfectly” wonderful idea as long as you understand the commitment that comes along with it. Before bringing a cat home, consider these tips from Madeline Bernstein, president of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA): •Evaluate your needs. Are you ready to make the commitment to a pet? Cats can live up to 18 years. On average, pet care costs about $400 a year. •Visit a pet adoption center. Don’t shop when you can adopt. Shelters have many cats to choose from and adoption saves lives. •Questions? Ask the staff. The shelter staff can often tell you the animal’s personality traits, likes, dislikes, temperament, breed, and activity level. Keep your options open. A pet doesn’t have to be a kitten to be a loyal companion. •Patience. Be patient. You may need to visit the adoption centers a few times before you find the cat that’s right for you. •Decide as a family. Does the cat get along with everyone and how does everyone get along with the cat? •You made a decision, now what? Here are some items you should have before bringing your new cat home: ID tag and breakaway collar, cat food, pet bowls (2), litter box (rule of thumb: one for each cat, plus one), litter and scooper, toys, treats, scratching

One fun way to learn how entertaining cats can be is to watch the animated film “Puss In Boots,” about a legendary feline hero. post, cat carrier (for vet trips/ emergencies) and a plan for veterinary care. •We love our new cat, but we’re having some issues. Don’t give up. The solution may only require a slight adjustment in behaviors. spcaLA has an Animal Behavior Hotline at (888) SPCALA-1, x260 to answer pet behavior questions. Even if you’re not quite ready to commit to a real cat, you can still enjoy how entertaining they can be by watching DreamWorks Animation’s “Puss In Boots,” which is now available on Blu-ray and DVD. This hilarious origin story of the notorious fighter, lover and outlaw tells the true tale of how Puss became a hero long before he met Shrek. Featuring the extraordinary Antonio Banderas as the voice of the irresistible and legendary cat, “Puss In Boots” boasts a sensational cast of voice talent including Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris.

Recognizing American Heart Month And The Importance Of Heart Health And Education (NAPSA)—February is a time often filled with gifts from the heart, from Valentine’s Day chocolates to notes from loved ones. However, February is also American Heart Month, the perfect time of the year to inform loved ones about the prevalence of heart disease and the importance of heart health and education. Take the time this month to learn about the risks of heart disease, such as severe chest pain or a heart attack, as well as lifestyle changes and treatment options that may help. The American Heart Association estimates that every year more than 1 million Americans are hospitalized for acute coronary syndrome (ACS), which includes a recent heart attack or severe chest pain that happened because the heart was not getting enough oxygen.1 In addition, up to one in three patients could have a recurrent heart attack or die within one year of their first cardiovascular event.1 “The goal in treating ACS is to improve blood flow to the heart muscle and ultimately reduce the risk of another heart attack,” said Alex Gold, M.D., Executive Director of Clinical Development, BRILINTA ® (ticagrelor) tablets, AstraZeneca. “Along with these goals, B RILINTA is an important treatment option for ACS patients.”

BRILINTA is the first and only oral antiplatelet FDA-approved medicine to significantly reduce CV death versus Plavix® (clopidogrel). B R I L I N TA significantly reduced the primary composite end point of CV death, myocardial

infarction (MI), which is more commonly known as a heart attack, or stroke versus Plavix. 2 The difference between treatments was driven by CV death and MI with no difference in stroke. The secondary end points included the individual components of CV death, MI and stroke. In patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), which is more commonly known as coronary angioplasty, it also reduces the rate of stent thrombosis.2 BRILINTA is a prescription medicine for people who have had a recent heart attack or severe chest pain that happened because their heart wasn’t getting enough oxygen and who are being treated with medicines or procedures to open blocked arteries in the heart.3 BRILINTA is used with aspirin to lower your chance of having another serious problem with your heart or blood vessels such as heart attack, stroke or blood clots in your stent if you received one. These can be fatal.3 If you or someone close to you has been hospitalized due to a recent heart attack or severe chest pain, talk to a doctor about whether an antiplatelet therapy such as BRILINTA may be right to decrease the possibility of a future heart attack.

Important Safety Information About BRILINTA: BRILINTA is used to lower your chance of having another heart attack or dying from a heart attack or stroke, but BRILINTA (and similar drugs) can cause bleeding that can be serious and sometimes lead to death. Instances of serious bleeding, such as internal bleeding, may require blood transfusions or surgery. While you take BRILINTA, you may bruise and bleed more easily and be more likely to have nosebleeds. Bleeding will also take longer than usual to stop. Call your doctor right away if you have any signs or symptoms of bleeding while taking BRILINTA, including: severe, uncontrollable bleeding; pink, red, or brown urine; vomit that is bloody or looks like coffee grounds; red or black stool; or if you cough up blood or blood clots. Do not stop taking BRILINTA without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. People who are treated with a stent, and stop taking BRILINTA too soon, have a higher risk of getting a blood clot in the stent, having a heart attack, or dying. If you stop BRILINTA because of bleeding, or for other reasons, your risk of a heart attack or stroke may increase. Tell all your doctors and dentists that you are taking BRILINTA. To decrease your risk of bleeding, your doctor may instruct you to stop taking BRILINTA 5 days before you have elective surgery. Your doctor should tell you when to start taking BRILINTA again, as soon as possible after surgery. Take BRILINTA and aspirin exactly as instructed by your doctor. You should not take a dose of aspirin higher than 100 mg daily because it can affect how well BRILINTA works. Tell your doctor if you take other medicines that contain aspirin. Do not take new medicines that contain aspirin. Do not take BRILINTA if you are bleeding now, especially from your stomach or intestine (ulcer), have a history of bleeding in the brain, or have severe liver problems. BRILINTA can cause serious side effects, including bleeding and shortness of breath. Call your doctor if you have new or unexpected shortness of breath or any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away. Your doctor can decide what treatment is needed. Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. BRILINTA may affect the way other medicines work, and other medicines may affect how BRILINTA works. Click to read Medication Guide and the full Prescribing Information, including Boxed Warnings.

Saving The Dollar Bill (NAPSA)—An increasing number of Americans have found a new way to save a dollar—or, at any rate, to save the dollar bill. At Issue That’s because they’re asking legislators to oppose the effort to take the dollar bill out of circulation and replace it with a dollar coin. The dollar bill’s supporters say such a switch would not only eliminate an American icon, it would cost businesses money. According to the experts at the economics research firm John Dunham & Associates, getting rid of the dollar bill would cost businesses about $200 million a year and lead to more than 4,000 job losses—and that doesn’t even include additional capital expenses such as new cash registers, change-counting machines, cash drawers, larger safes and so on. There will also be costs to banks, money transfer companies and other financial firms. The Expert’s Opinion “Essentially, this would be a tax increase on businesses from coast to coast,” explained John Dunham. “Americans are already struggling with a poor economy, and forcibly removing the dollar bill from circulation for a dollar coin will only exacerbate these problems for business owners.” The Government Report A Government Accountability Office (GAO) report appears to agree. It indicates “the cost of producing coins for a full replacement is never fully recovered during the 30-year analysis.” Even without considering the cost of producing, transferring, distributing, storing and managing dollar coins, the GAO estimate shows that the dollar coin would actually be a net

Does the buck stop here? Most Americans oppose the effort to take the dollar bill out of circulation and replace it with a dollar coin. cost to the government for at least the first 10 years. The People’s Preference The potential switch is also unpopular. According to a study by Luntz Global, 97 percent of Americans believe the dollar bill is more convenient than the dollar coin. What Some People Are Doing Americans for George—a group of like-minded individuals, businesses and organizations seeking to ensure that the citizens of the United States maintain the ability to choose their preferred currency—has a number of ideas about how to save the dollar bill.

Facebook Is About Connecting With Friends, Sharing Pictures And…Buying Homes

Many real estate professionals are taking things a step further to provide their community with all they have to offer directly through Facebook. (NAPSA)—Whether it’s reuniting with old friends, sharing pictures or asking for recommendations, people are relying on Facebook more and more to manage their daily lives. According to Nielsen’s State of the Media: Social Media Report, Americans spend more time on Facebook than any other website. With 800 million active users who average more than six hours a month on the networking site, it’s no surprise that Facebook is affecting how we connect with other people, seek out advice and even buy homes. “For today’s homebuyers and sellers, one of the most convenient ways to identify, research and connect with a real estate professional is through Facebook,” said Bev Thorne, CMO of Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “When you think about it, Facebook is all about relationships, a very impor-

tant thing when you’re searching for someone to guide you through one of the most significant moves you’ll make in life.” Giving Homebuyers and Sellers Real Estate Tools Online Today’s new generation of homebuyers is increasingly turning to social networks to begin searches rather than walking into an office and seeking the help of a real estate professional. Whether they realize it or not, users are single-handedly making Facebook the latest word-of-mouth marketing powerhouse. These devoted users, 50 percent of whom return daily, aren’t just sharing gossip and pictures with friends—they’re asking for and sharing advice. Buyers and sellers can rest assured—real estate professionals are taking notice of their desire to connect via Facebook. Realtors recognize the impact Facebook can have on their business and

are putting more effort into their presence in order to connect with potential clients and develop relationships through the site, often through the use of specialized applications (apps). For example, the CENTURY 21® Application for Facebook lets CENTURY 21® Brokers customize their landing page and connect with existing and potential new clients directly through Facebook. With information on current listings and homebuyer and seller toolkits, the app provides people with all the information they need to start their homebuying or selling process, without ever leaving Facebook. Tips for homebuyers and sellers using Facebook: •Ask your friends for input. Facebook is a way to reach out to several friends and neighbors all at once to ask for their advice on local real estate professionals they’d recommend. •Check out local real estate agents’ Facebook pages. Before deciding whether or not you want to reach out to a real estate professional, spend some time on their Facebook page—it should give you some insights into their services and specialties. •Pay attention to content. A sign of a reliable, knowledgeable real estate professional is that they regularly share local market news and trends while consistently engaging with their network. •Look for additional resources. Many real estate professionals will offer tools, such as the ability to view current listings and mortgage calculators, making Facebook your one-stop shop for real estate research.

Career-Changing Advice (NAPSA)—A challenging economy has forced many Americans to consider a career change. Whether such a move is prompted by a desire for more money or fulfillment or the need to find a job in a changing economy, making such a major change usually requires some research. Here are three steps to help you get started: •Think about what interests you. Could you turn a current hobby into a career? For example, if you love travel, you might want to work for a travel agent. A love of airplanes might inspire a mechanic to train for airplane repair. •Consider the skills you already have and how they might fit into alternative career choices. Can your love of math be channeled into teaching math, finance or tax time preparation? •Look at which industries are growing. Consider where the jobs are. For example, while many highly qualified unemployed and underemployed business professionals struggle to find job opportunities, others are building new and fulfilling careers as financial representatives in the insurance industry. Throughout the next year, The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America will hire over 800 financial representatives by targeting and recruiting career changers as part of its distribution force recruitment strategy. Even before the economic downturn, many of the company’s financial representatives came to it after successful careers in other industries. Unlike employers with a more traditional view of the job market, the company welcomes career changers and

Even in a down economy, insurance companies are hiring. experienced professionals who may have recently experienced a downsizing or who are working in unfulfilling jobs where their skills are undervalued. The company is one of several insurance industry employers hiring during the economic downturn, which may surprise some. The rise in demand for qualified sales reps is driven in part by a rise in demand for more secure and reliable financial products not as adversely affected by the turbulent economy, such as whole life insurance. The same economic issues causing problems in other industries make such secure, reliable products an even more valued commodity. A mutual insurer founded in 1860, The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America and its subsidiaries offer life insurance, disability income insurance, dental insurance products and funding vehicles for 401(k) plans, annuities and other financial products.

Putting An End To “Overtesting” Students (NAPSA)—Don’t stress the dreaded standardized test: Some experts suggest schools test less and teach more. The Dilemma Although gathering student performance data is a critical part of education, “testing day” remains one of the most dreaded— and costly—events on the school calendar. In a recent national survey, educators indicated they spend on average more than four weeks a year testing reading skills. Furthermore, students in grades pre-K through 5 spend an average of eight entire days taking reading tests. An Answer To spend less time testing and more time teaching, many educators are looking into a new approach known as “Assessment Without Testing.” More than 13,000 schools are using this innovation in educational technology that provides teachers with student performance data without having to stop to give a test. What it Does The software, called Lexia Reading, combines individualized student learning and targeted teaching strategies to help students improve their reading ability. The system lets students work at their own pace, gathers student performance data without a test and saves teachers’ time by prioritizing the students who need the most help and providing teaching strategies customized to each student’s individual needs. Gathering meaningful student performance data is critical to

Many schools have found a way to teach more and test less. guide classroom instructional strategies, educators say, but, they add, the best way to measure student progress is to observe their abilities while they are learning. How it Works Students using this system work independently on activities that build reading proficiency as the software gathers performance data in real time based on their responses to each question. In contrast, traditional testing methods rely on a snapshot of reading performance—taken when students are often nervous and not performing at their best— and can result in false high or low scores based on how each student reacts to the test on a given day. Districts are finding they can reclaim weeks of instructional time and thousands of dollars typically spent testing, while the resulting data and the instructional strategies help improve student performance and reduce stress.

The Benefits Of Serving Your Country (NAPSA)—Helping to make our nation a safer place is not without its rewards. Becoming a member of the Army National Guard, a 375-yearold branch of the U.S. military, gives soldiers a chance to accomplish great things in addition to serving their country and state. For a start, serving is not fulltime and does not require you to leave your personal or professional life behind. The difference between the Guard and other military services is that Guard soldiers serve part-time and close to home. These soldiers can work or go to school full-time and also serve their communities part-time by responding to natural disasters and other emergencies. That may be why it’s such a popular option. Currently, the Army National Guard has 360,000 citizen-soldiers who are ready to protect and serve their local community, state and country at a moment’s notice. Meeting The Nation’s Military Needs The Army National Guard is one component of the U.S. Army. It partners with the other two components—the Active Army and the Army Reserve—to help fulfill the country’s military needs. The Guard dates back to 1636, when Colonial militia forces were organized into regiments in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Since the Pequot War in 1637, the Guard has participated in every national war or conflict. The Guard has a dual state and federal mission. At the state level, it provides vital emergency assistance when there is a natural disaster, such as responding to fight wildfires or helping communities deal with floods, tornadoes,

National Guard soldiers serve their communities by responding to natural disasters. hurricanes and snowstorms or civil disturbance. The Guard also supports federal homeland security efforts and stands ready to mobilize in times of war and national emergency. Emergency And Recovery Efforts In 2011, the Army Guard aided in emergency evacuation, rescue and recovery efforts for events such as Hurricane Irene; the devastating tornado in Joplin, Missouri; wildfires in Texas, Arizona and New Mexico; and blizzards across the East Coast and Midwest. On the federal side of things, National Guard units are currently serving in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as in peacekeeping missions in Kosovo and the Sinai Peninsula. Besides the opportunity to serve, there are several financial advantages to signing on that include pay and bonuses, low-cost health and life insurance, plus a chance to rise in the ranks. The Guard also helps members with their education by offering college tuition assistance. For More Information For more information, visit www.nationalguard.com.

A Restful Bedtime Routine (NAPSA)—Here’s news many sleep-deprived parents will be happy to wake up to. In a recent study led by pediatric sleep expert Dr. Jodi Mindell and JOHNSON ’ S ® Baby, researchers found that the use of a three-step nightly routine incorporating the JOHNSON’S BEDTIME line resulted in babies not only falling asleep easier, but also sleeping through the night better. This three-part process consisting of bath time, a baby massage and quiet time had babies taking 37 percent less time to fall asleep, sleeping 20 percent longer and showing a 50 percent reduction in night awakenings. Three Steps to Better Rest Here’s how it works: 1. Bath Time Gather all necessary bath items, including towels, cleansers and washcloths. Splash some of the bathwater on your wrists to be sure the temperature is less than 120° F. Use one arm to continually support baby’s head, back and neck, while using your other to lather up your little one with JOHNSON ’S BEDTIME Bath, developed with NATURALCALM, a unique blend of essences proven to contain relaxing properties and warm, comforting notes. 2. Massage After drying down baby, lay your baby on a flat surface and warm some J OHNSON ’ S B EDTIME Lotion in your hands before massaging with gentle, circular touches. Start with the face and work your way down, always

A bath and soothing massage just before bed may help your baby get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer.

maintaining eye contact to help baby remain calm and relaxed. 3. Quality Quiet Time Next, ease your little one off to sleep with quality quiet time together. Read a story, sing a lullaby or just quietly enjoy each other ’s warmth. Choose what works for you and your little one, but to ensure that sleep shortly follows, your quiet time shouldn’t exceed 20 minutes. A Modern Response Luckily, the modern mom now has a tool to keep all this at hand. With the recent launch of J OHNSON ’ S new B EDTIME App for iPhone, parents can track and monitor their baby’s sleep patterns, get their related questions answered by pediatric sleep expert Dr. Jodi Mindell, and access a variety of other sleep tools and features such as playable lullabies and a soothing sound mixer.

Here are a few ideas to get you started: •Play a game of tag instead of watching television. Tag provides fun and physical activity. Children love it—especially if they can chase their parents—and it increases everyone’s heart rate at the same time. •Start a family garden. Begin getting the soil ready to plant flowers and vegetables. If you have limited space, try growing herbs in pots. Homegrown vegetables and herbs are great money savers and ensure you’ll have something available for healthy summer meals and snacks. Fresh herbs are

Stop-start systems in vehicles substantially reduce fuel consumption and air pollution (NAPSA)—Buying a car with fuel-saving features typically found only on gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles is becoming increasingly affordable. Currently, one of the most in-demand hybridlike features that consumers seek is a stop-start system, which helps to reduce fuel consumption and improve fuel economy by turning the engine off when the vehicle is not in motion—such as at a stoplight or in traffic—and automatically restarting when the driver releases the brake pedal. This technology is especially helpful for drivers who have long commutes and spend significant time idling in their vehicles. Stop-start systems also substantially reduce fuel consumption and air pollution, which is appealing to members of Generation Y (individuals between the ages of 19 and 31 years old), according to the global accounting firm Deloitte, which oversees an annual survey of Gen Y auto consumers. According to the survey, 59 percent of Gen Y respondents said they prefer an “electrified vehicle” over any other type of car. While hybrids, with their high price points, may be out of reach for Gen Y consumers, vehicles like the economically priced 2013 Kia Rio (five-door and sedan) and 2012 Kia Soul urban passenger vehicle (2.0 liter and 1.6 liter) are more within their price range. With their own start-stop technology called Idle Stop and Go (ISG), Kia Motors presents a lineup of vehicles that eco-minded consumers may take a second look

Idle Stop and Go technology can help improve fuel economy. at. With the ISG technology and fuel economy of up to 40 miles per gallon (mpg), the all-new Rio fivedoor hatchback and its sedan sibling deliver eye-catching design and the latest technologies, including navigation, push-button start and Kia’s UVO voice-activated infotainment system. The Rio also has a 1.6-liter GDI fourcylinder with the option of either a six-speed manual transmission (LX only) or efficient six-speed automatic. As one of only two vehicles in the subcompact segment to offer a Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine, Rio provides an inviting combination of power and fuel efficiency. Also new for Rio for 2012 and emphasizing the Earthfriendly theme, 85 percent of the Rio’s materials are recyclable at the end of its life span. Additionally, the refreshed 2012 Soul offers more power and improved fuel economy, with up to 35 miles per gallon on the highway. With these fuel-saving features, car buyers are expected not to idle or stop before going to check them out. For more information, visit www.kia.com.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Celebrates 50 Years (NAPSA)—Fifty years ago, few children with cancer survived, and many doctors believed treatment was futile. On February 4, 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened its doors and took a radically different treatment approach, which proved pivotal in changing how the world fights childhood cancer. The history of St. Jude is marked with milestones in the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other childhood illnesses. In less than 10 years of the hospital’s opening, St. Jude investigators showed that the combination of chemotherapy and radiation cured at least half of all children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The most common form of childhood cancer, ALL was previously considered almost fatal. Today, St. Jude patients with ALL have a 94 percent survival rate. St. Jude is recognized for playing a significant role in improving overall survival rates for all childhood cancers, which have increased from 20 percent in 1962 to more than 80 percent today. “In the nearly four decades I’ve been at St. Jude, I’ve had the privilege of watching the organization grow from one building to a sprawling campus of about 2.5 million square feet of research, clinical and administrative space,” said Dr. William E. Evans, St. Jude director and CEO. “Driven by our patients, and thanks to our employees, colleagues at our fundraising organization, ALSAC, and the public support they generate, St. Jude will only continue to grow in the years to come.” To further speed progress, the hospital embarked on the Pediatric

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened in 1962. Its 50-year history is marked with milestones in the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other childhood illnesses. Cancer Genome Project in 2010. The collaboration between St. Jude and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis aims to identify the genetic changes that give rise to some of the world’s deadliest childhood cancers. Through the three-year, $65 million initiative, investigators are mapping the cancer genomes of 600 children, comparing cancerous cells with normal cells to better understand the pathology of these diseases. The project is already yielding exciting discoveries into poorly understood cancers. “St. Jude has a legacy of taking on the toughest of pediatric cancer questions, and that focus won’t change,” said James R. Downing, M.D., St. Jude scientific director and deputy director. “We’re uniquely positioned to move research and treatment ahead. From the genetic data we collect from the genome project, we’re creating the foundation of knowledge to deliver the next decades’ childhood cancer discoveries and treatments.” Throughout its five decades, St.

Jude research has included work in cancer biology and genomics, pharmacogenomics, gene therapy, bone marrow transplantation, drug discovery, radiation treatment, blood diseases and infectious diseases, integrated into a long series of innovative clinical trials. St. Jude is also a leader in patient care. According to Joseph Laver, M.D., St. Jude clinical director, “the unsurpassed familycentered care that’s provided at St. Jude stems from the multidisciplinary team approach that has been a hallmark of St. Jude since 1962.” “Looking toward the future, St. Jude is a national resource with a global mission and will continue to enhance its leadership as a resource for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases,” Evans said. “We’ve created a collaborative culture whose team members demonstrate unceasing compassion for our patients and families, innovation in our treatment and research, and quality in everything we do.”

What To Consider When Choosing Tax Software (NAPSA)—According to the IRS, the number of self-prepared and e-filed tax returns last year increased 14.2 percent over the p r e v i o u s y e a r. U s e o f d o - i t yourself tax preparation software is expected to continue rising, t h a n k s t o i n c r e a s i n g l y u s e rfriendly and convenient options, as well as readily available tax help. “ Ta x p r e p a r a t i o n s o f t w a r e gives consumers a fast, easy and affordable way to do just about everything related to their taxes,” said Jessi Dolmage, spokesperson for TaxACT. “From one-on-one tax help and e-filing, to checking on the status of your returns and refund, taxpayers can do their taxes from the comfort of home.” Software has become the more affordable alternative to professional and storefront preparation, with most ranging in price from free to well under $100. The National Society of Accountants’ 2011 survey of nearly 8,000 tax preparers found the average fee for a Form 1040 with Schedule A and state return was $233. The average fee for a nonitemized Form 1040 and state return was $128. Deciding between software and a professional may be easy, but choosing a software brand and product can be confusing. Here are some tips for making that decision less taxing: Tax preparation websites provide 24/7 access to your returns wherever there’s an Internet connection, and allow you to print and save a copy of your return. Many are even optimized for use on an iPad. Some sites tend to load faster than others, so take that into account if you procrastinate. Online products typically don’t require payment until printing or e-filing, so Dolmage recommends testing a couple of brands. Downloadable software requires space on your computer, flash drive or other storage device and costs a little more. However, downloading is likely the faster and more cost-effective option if you have a slow Internet connection or are preparing additional returns for family and friends. Look for products that include a money-back guarantee. All products save your data as

Look for extra tools that can save time and increase your refund, such as data import of last year ’s return and investment files. If you itemize deductions and donate household items, find a product with a tool that calculates the fair market value of your donations. Many also offer extra tax guidance for life changes such as marriage, addition to the family and moving. The overall look and feel of user interfaces may differ slightly but probably not enough to be the deciding factor. The main difference between brands is price. The more complicated your return, the more expensive the software tends to be. Remember to research the total cost for all the products and services you need, including federal software, state software, e-filing and tax help. Some brands offer “free” phone or chat help, but their software costs more, so you pay for help whether or not you use it. Several brands offer free federal products for “simple” Form 1040EZ and nonitemized returns, but TaxACT Free Federal Edition is the only one that includes all e-fileable forms for simple and complex returns. Unlimited tax and technical help via e-mail is also free. The bottom line is you may find that a fee or two in addition to the product price still costs much less than an all-inclusive product. Carefully research product websites and read expert reviews in top technology and software publications.

New Fuel Treatment Protects Engines From Damaging Effects Of Ethanol Fuel Blends (NAPSA)—The next time you start up your lawn mower, string trimmer or other equipment powered by a gas engine, think about adding a fuel preservative to protect your investment from the harmful effects of ethanol fuel blends. According to engine experts, ethanol fuels begin to deteriorate almost the moment they are pumped, and can break down in the fuel tank causing rust, corrosion, buildup and even significant engine damage. This is particularly an issue in engines only used occasionally—like those on lawn mowers, generators and snow throwers, as well as engines powering sporting equipment such as boats, snowmobiles and ATVs. A potent new fuel preservative developed by Briggs & Stratton, the largest maker of gas engines for outdoor power equipment, provides an easy and inexpensive way to prevent damage caused by ethanol-blended gas while also keeping the fuel fresh for up to three years. The Advanced Formula Fuel Treatment & Stabilizer protects any gas engine, including 2-cycle engines like those on trimmers, which use a blend of oil and gasoline. This protection may be more important than ever–ethanolblended fuels now account for nearly 90 percent of all fuel sold in the U.S., according to the Renewable Fuels Association. The longer these blends sit in the fuel tank, the more damage they can do, resulting in starting issues, rough running and even severe engine damage. “Ethanol-based fuels attract moisture, which eventually separates from the fuel, forming a layer of ethanol-enriched water at the bottom of the tank where it does its damage,” explains Eric

A new advanced fuel treatment and stabiliz er protects gas engines from ethanol-blended fuels. Risse, fuel systems engineer at Briggs & Stratton. A Solution Briggs & Stratton’s Advanced Formula Fuel Treatment & Stabilizer combines a proprietary “triple antioxidant” formula with other ingredients to fight water separation and protect the entire fuel system. Corrosion inhibitors form a protective barrier on metal parts while detergent ingredients help prevent gum and varnish buildup. A metal deactivator works to stop the aggressive chemical reactions caused by dissolved metal ions in the fuel. The net result: extreme protection against fuelrelated problems. The company cautions consumers to avoid certain fuels altogether in small gas engines because of their damaging effects. These include fuels containing more than 10 percent ethanol (such as E15 or E85 gasoline) and gasoline containing other alcohol blends.

Four Strategies For Conquering The Fear, Returning To The Classroom (NAPSA)—Once you have determined that completing your degree is the best way to achieve your life goals, you’ve probably done your research. You’ve figured out how to make the time, how to pay for school and what degree to pursue. One thing, however, may still be holding you back—fear. It can be scary walking into a classroom full of strangers. What if things are completely different from when you last set foot on a campus? What if everyone in the class is in their teens and you can’t relate? “Being nervous about returning to college is not necessarily a bad thing,” said Dr. Mary Hawkins, president of Bellevue University. “Your apprehension shows your desire to do well. More than 2.5 million people over the age of 30 currently attend college in the U.S. Don’t let fear take away the chance to accomplish the new goals you’ve set for yourself.” Research the Learning Environment “Familiarizing yourself with the situation will help alleviate some of the tension,” Dr. Hawkins suggests. A good place to start is the National Center for Education Statistics at nces.ed.gov. The site’s College Navigator tool allows you to search more than 7,000 schools and view enrollment statistics, including age breakdown, on each. This will give you a good picture of whether the school you are considering attracts more adult learners or more traditional students. Speak With Current Students and Alumni Next, call the schools at the top of your list and ask for referrals to students who have taken or are currently enrolled in the program you might enter. “This is the best way to get a firsthand account of the experience you will have,” Dr. Hawkins continued. “Students and alumni have nothing to gain or lose by being honest about their experiences. Make sure to speak to more than one individual to get a more balanced view of the student experience.” If you feel more comfortable with an indirect route, you can

Consider Online Learning If the classroom is too intimidating still, look into online learning, which you can complete from the comfort of your own home. “Due to responsibilities, including family, work and community commitments, many working adults find this way of learning is the right fit,” Dr. Hawkins said. “If you are considering this option, include both students who have studied online and in class in your research so you can compare how the experiences vary.” Give Yourself a Deadline Simply putting your plan in writing or talking about it out loud can give you the momentum and accountability to get moving. Give yourself as much time as you need but set a firm deadline. Determine a specific date by which you plan to begin your coursework. Tell family and friends who, you feel, will be supportive. You can also put your plan into writing at www.makeithappennow.org, which offers expert advice on staying motivated. “Remember, most of your classmates will be as nervous as you are,” Hawkins said. “Much like going to the gym after years away or going to the doctor for your yearly checkup, the anticipation is often worse than the actual experience.” Don’t let fear hold you back; once you overcome it, you are on your way to a more promising future.

Don’t Fall For Foreign Lottery Fraud (NAPSA)—Each year, organized groups of criminals target and victimize thousands of Americans by telephone, e-mails and through the mail—but you can protect yourself and your family. The United States Postal Inspection Service has documented over $42 million in losses from this type of fraud. In some cases, people have lost their homes and their savings by chasing the dream of a big “lottery jackpot.” Inspector Paul Krenn advises, “One of the main techniques scammers use is a foreign lottery scam, where they tell you to send money to pay for taxes or fees. If you’ve received a suspected fraud via mail or if the mail was used to continue a crime started online, over the phone or in person, report it to The U.S. Postal Inspection Service.” What To Watch Out For Here are a few facts and signs to consider: •Scammers are using new techniques, such as legitimate mailing lists and new technology. They “spoof” caller ID to make it look as if they’re calling from the U.S. or even a government agency. •Older consumers, especially shut-ins, are often a favorite target for foreign lottery fraud. Look out for checks written or money wired internationally; a telephone that rings constantly; or a stack of

Foreign lottery fraud, a criminal practice where scammers entice U.S. consumers to send money and even provide bank and credit card information, is a growing problem that can have devastating and longlasting effects on victims and their families. lottery or sweepstakes entries. •Scammers are constantly updating their methods. One of their latest tricks is to convince you that you’ve won a foreign lottery and all you need to do is wire a small processing fee (relative to the gigantic prize). Don’t—you’ll never see that money again. •Beware of calls from foreign countries, especially if they’re calling an elderly person. •If you or a loved one receives an unsolicited offer, hang up the phone or delete the e-mail. •Don’t give out personal or financial information to anyone over the Internet or phone.

•Never wire or send money to anyone, anywhere, who says you have won a foreign lottery. •Don’t let anyone pressure you into making an immediate decision. •Never purchase anything until you get all information in writing. Where To Get Help To help people recognize and prevent frauds and scams, The U.S. Postal Inspection Service set up a website, www.deliveringtrust.com. At the site, you can educate yourself, share the information with family and friends, and report suspected fraud sent through the U.S. mail.

New Tires Gain Traction With Farmers And Drivers (NAPSA)—New kinds of tires are putting farmers and drivers on the road to increased safety, better performance and opportunities for bigger markets as well. The tires, which are made using some surprising ingredients such as sunflower oil and sugar, can also mean good news for the environment. For example, Michelin North America now uses sunflower oil produced by American farmers to help make one of its luxury tires stop faster in wet weather and deliver safer handling and great ride quality in all weather. Tires and the Environment “One of Michelin’s core values is respect for the environment,” said Michael Vandel, marketing segment manager. He believes that the environment is everything to farmers and to their equipment supplier and that the choice of a tire can make a difference to the environment as well as their bottom line. Environmental considerations are particularly important in agriculture. Tire companies invest heavily in research to improve fuel economy and traction and reduce soil compaction, which combine to reduce soil erosion and runoff into waterways. Ag tires, for instance, are designed to run at lower air pressures so they spread out to create a wider footprint. This spreads the weight of the tractor or combine, improving traction and reducing compaction. While the tires may look flat when properly inflated, this can actually help seeds take root. It can also help to prevent erosion and runoff, while letting the tractor grip the ground, traveling

Experts say little engineering details can make a big difference in tire performance and in environmental health. more efficiently and getting better fuel economy, thereby cutting carbon emissions. Said Vandel, “Little engineering details can make a big difference in tire performance and in field and environmental health.” Sunflower Oil and Sugar The performance advantages the sunflower oil delivers to the tire aside, it also provides North American sunflower farmers an additional market for their product, closing a circle of life that benefits both the environment and the farmers’ bottom lines by incorporating what they grow into what they use to harvest the crop. And this is just the first of many technical advances the research-driven company is making. It is now including sugar in compounds for tires that could be on the road in three to five years, according to Chemical & Engineering News.

Advances In Contact Lens Technology Benefit Millions

Uncorrected moderate Fully corrected vision astigmatism* Blurry vision during everyday activities such as text messaging, driving, playing sports or watching TV is common for the millions of people with astigmatism. A new daily disposable soft toric contact lens provides comparable visual acuity to wearing glasses. *This is a representation. The amount and location of astigmatism will vary by individual.

(NAPSA)—Here’s eye-opening news: “Studies confirm that nearly half of all patients requiring vision correction have levels of astigmatism that could affect visual performance in at least one eye,” says W. Lee Ball, OD, FAAO, Associate Director of M e d i c a l A f f a i r s a t Vi s t a k o n D i v i sion of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. Many people with astigmatism—a common vision problem that affects how the eye focuses light—experience fluctuating and/or blurred vision during such everyday activities as driving, reading, texting, working on the c o m p u t e r, e x e r c i s i n g , p l a y i n g sports or watching TV. A visit to your eye care professional will help you determine whether you have astigmatism. “Research confirms that toric soft contact lenses such as 1-Day Acuvue Moist Brand Contact Lenses for Astigmatism provide significantly better visual acuity compared to spherical lenses for astigmatic patients, and provide comparable improvements in visual acuity to wearing glasses,” Dr. Ball adds. Along with the health and con-

venience benefits of wearing a fresh contact lens every day, these lenses feature a proprietary Blink Stabilized Design, which harnesses the natural pressures of a blinking eye to help keep the lens in place and quickly realign the lens if i t rotates out of position, for consistent, all-day vision. Each lens is made using L a c r e o n Te c h n o l o g y, a u n i q u e process that permanently embeds in the lens a water-holding ingredient, similar to that in natural tears. This technological advancement locks in moisture that lasts a l l d a y, a d d r e s s i n g t h e m o s t frequently reported complaints of contact lens discomfort, dryness and end-of-day comfort. In addition, it blocks an average of 82 percent of UV-A radiation and 97 percent of UV-B radiation— t h o u g h d o n ’t f o r g e t p r o t e c t i v e accessories when going outside. Dr. Ball says contact lenses “should always be worn with high-quality U V- b l o c k i n g s u n g l a s s e s a n d a wide-brimmed hat” for more complete UV protection. To find out how to receive a free trial pair of lenses, visit www.acuvue.com. (Professional and fitting fees not included.)

 Editor’s Note: Important information for contact lens wearers: ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses are available by prescription only for vision correction. An eye care professional will determine whether contact lenses are right for you. Although rare, serious eye problems can develop while wearing contact lenses. To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye doctor. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. If one of these conditions occurs, contact your eye doctor immediately. For more information on proper wear, care and safety, talk to your eye care professional and ask for a Patient Instruction Guide, call (800) 843-2020 or visit www.acuvue.com. Acuvue® Brand Contact Lenses with UV blocking help protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UVblocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders.

Doctors Request Medicare Cover Lifesaving Test (NAPSA)—A new, less invasive way to screen for colorectal cancer could help save thousands of lives— if more people could access it. The test is a virtual colonoscopy, which doctors say is as effective as standard colonoscopy for detecting cancer but often easier on the patient. The problem is, while most major insurance companies cover the procedure, Medicare does not. An Answer An American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) study, published Feb. 23 in Radiology, found that virtual colonoscopy works as well in those ages 65 and older as it does in adults ages 50–64 and can serve as a frontline colorectal cancer screening tool for seniors. This is consistent with the ACRIN National CT Colonography Trial for patients 50 and older, published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2008. Now that there is proof that virtual colonoscopy works very well, including in those ages 65 and older, Colon Cancer Alliance and other experts say Medicare should cover seniors for this life-saving test. CT colonography employs X-rays and virtual reality technology to produce three-dimensional images of the colon that permit a thorough and minimally invasive evaluation. It also requires no sedation. The Disease Colorectal cancer is the third most frequently diagnosed cancer and second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Yet despite the known benefits of screening, studies indicate that millions of Americans age 50 and older are not being screened for the disease. The Centers for Dis-

CT colonography employs virtual reality technology to produce a three-dimensional visualization that permits a thorough and minimally invasive evaluation. ease Control and Prevention estimates that up to 30,000 colorectal cancer deaths each year could be prevented if all those age 50 and older were screened regularly. Studies at National Military Medical Center have shown that availability of the virtual exam significantly boosted screening rates. The Doctor’s Advice As C. Daniel Johnson, M.D., of the Mayo Clinic, explained, “CT colonography is a perfectly viable colorectal cancer screening tool for the traditional Medicare-age population. Wider availability made possible by Medicare coverage of CT colonography would attract more seniors to be screened for colorectal cancer—which is so successfully treated when detected early. Making CT colonography more available to seniors ultimately could save lives.” Further Information Learn more at www.acrin.org.

Introducing Kids To The Animal Kingdom (NAPSA)—Introducing children to wildlife can be a great way to get them interested in science, discovery and nature. While many kids may be intimidated by the periodic table and microscopes, most are inherently fond of all animals, from baby penguins to exotic cheetahs. Fortunately, there are fun and affordable ways to get kids engaged with nature and wildlife, learning valuable lessons along the way. How to Make Wildlife Interesting Do Some Research: Take children on a virtual safari using reliable sources found on the Internet. A wide range of information and pictures on just about every known reptile, amphibian, mammal and more can be found with the click of a mouse. Once children have narrowed down the basic facts about their favorite animals, take a trip to the library and give them a challenge—find one fact about an unknown animal. This not only exposes children to exciting new information, it also gives them a chance to learn about valuable research tools. Have a “Wild” Experience: Once children have learned more about the animal kingdom, it’s time to reward them with real one-on-one animal time. Zoos and wildlife preserves offer the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with creatures—large or small—that kids have seen through pictures. While there, kids can meet animal specialists who are usually on hand to provide children with the information and fun stories that come from working with animals on a day-today basis.

Penguins Mumble and Erik can help parents get kids interested in learning about nature. Bring the Lessons to the Living Room: A family movie can be a great way to wrap up an exploration of the animal kingdom. The toe-tapping family blockbuster “Happy Feet Two,” available now from Warner Bros. on Blu-ray disc and DVD, is an excellent resource that animal lovers of all ages can enjoy. In the sequel to the Academy Award–winning “Happy Feet,” Mumble’s son Erik lacks the dancing talent of all the other penguins. Erik runs away to avoid dancing, only to have his world shaken by powerful forces. Erik and his father must bring together the penguin nations and all manners of fabulous creatures—from tiny krill to giant elephant seals—to make things right. “Happy Feet Two” showcases the beauty of the natural world and the fragility of the environment that sustains it. With an allstar cast, including Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, it’s an exciting family film kids will learn from and love.

The Highs And Lows Of Caring For Children With Diabetes (NAPSA)—Approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. live with Type 1 diabetes. Typically diagnosed in childhood, people with Type 1 diabetes have a pancreas that is unable to produce insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar, or glucose. Therefore, they must take insulin injections or use an insulin pump. Most people understand that having diabetes means carefully monitoring food intake and taking insulin to prevent the long-term complications associated with high blood glucose. But people with diabetes and their families will tell you it’s actually low glucose, called hypoglycemia, that keeps them up at night—literally. Parents of children with diabetes spend a lot of time monitoring glucose levels and adjusting insulin dosages and carbohydrate intake (because carbohydrates turn into sugar when processed by the body). Most parents get up several times a night to check their child’s glucose because it’s terrifying to face the possibility that, in severe cases, their child could die in the middle of the night from hypoglycemia. KK Kessel is an 11-year-old with Type 1 diabetes who’s had two seizures as a result of nighttime hypoglycemia. His mother, Britta Bushnell, says, “The constant vigilance required to care for a child with Type 1 diabetes is beyond what most people can know.” Technology available to help these families manage diabetes includes insulin pumps—small external devices that deliver insulin around the clock—and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems that measure glucose lev-

A new device helps many parents monitor their children’s health and still get a good night’s sleep. els every five minutes and deliver alerts based on those levels. In addition, the most recent innovation is the first-of-its-kind mySentry™ Remote Glucose Monitor, which could dramatically change nights for parents of children with diabetes. When used with an integrated insulin pump and CGM system, mySentry allows parents to see real-time insulin pump status and glucose trends— and hear alerts and alarms at their bedside—while their child sleeps in his or her own room. For example, an alarm could alert parents in the middle of the night if their sleeping child’s glucose levels are falling, allowing them to take necessary action to prevent hypoglycemia. With mySentry, Britta says, “We don’t have to worry about him sleeping through lows and not treating them in the middle of the night, like we worried about for a long time.” For more information, visit www.medtronicdiabetes.com/my sentry1.

Medicare And Medicare Supplement Insurance: Simple Steps To Help (NAPSA)—When retirement starts knocking on your door, make sure you have a plan in place before you open it—you especially need to plan when it comes to your health care. For people approaching retirement, the cost of health care tends to be a weighty concern. The high cost of health care makes some sort of coverage a necessity. Millions of Americans age 65 and older rely on Medicare to provide that coverage. However, even with Medicare, there’s a potential for high out-of-pocket costs. That’s why many Medicare enrollees will also choose a Medicare supplement insurance policy, according to Mutual of Omaha’s Dan Kresha. “Medicare supplement insurance is designed to work hand in hand with Medicare coverage, covering expenses not paid for by Medicare, including deductibles and co-insurance,” Kresha explained. “It offers some predictability in health care costs, which is often a plus for those concerned with making their retirement savings last.” The best time to purchase a Medicare supplement insurance policy is during your open enrollment period, which lasts for six months beginning on the first day of the month in which you turn 65 and are enrolled in Medicare Part B. During the open enrollment period, an insurance company cannot deny you coverage or place restrictions on your coverage due to your health.

Many Medicare enrollees think it’s a healthy idea to get Medicare supplement insurance. Choosing the right Medicare supplement plan can often be overwhelming. “The key to making the best decision is making an informed decision,” said Kresha. Kresha offers some tips to help individuals considering Medicare supplement insurance: •Understand Medicare. Find out what it does and does not cover. A good resource is medicare.gov. •Choose a plan with the best fit. Determine which Medicare supplement plan best meets your needs based on your health and financial situation. •Select the best company. Check the reputation of the company, its financial stability and the level of service offered. Finally, Kresha advises, don’t underestimate the value that an insurance representative can offer in your planning. Look for an agent willing to answer your questions and help you understand and determine your needs. For more information, visit www.mutualofomaha.com.

Who Has Fibromyalgia? It Might Not Be Who You Think (NAPSA)—You’ve probably seen the many commercials for fibromyalgia drugs on TV. They usually feature middle-aged women describing unexplained aches and pains. Although fibromyalgia most often affects adults, it can also develop in childhood and go undiagnosed for years in patients who often suffer in silence. According to the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), juvenile primary fibromyalgia syndrome (JPFS) typically develops between the ages of 13 and 15, although the symptoms can develop much earlier. Children and teens with JPFS feel pain that interferes with daily life and often have difficulty sleeping. Although it’s not entirely clear how many children are affected by JPFS, the ACR estimates that it is anywhere between 2 percent and 7.5 percent of children in North America and Europe. The symptoms can be so severe that adolescents with JPFS miss a lot of time in school and withdraw from social activities. The Journal of Pediatric Psychology recently reported that the rate of homeschooling among teens with fibromyalgia was more than 10 percent higher than the national average of about 2 percent.

Because their symptoms are so vague, teens with JPFS are often told by physicians that they are experiencing growing pains or suffering from depression. It can take years for teens to get an accurate diagnosis. What’s worse, even once they are diagnosed properly, there are no medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of fibromyalgia in patients younger than 18.

Lynne Matallana, founder of the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA), is all too familiar with the difficulties that teens with fibromyalgia and their parents face. “Very little research has been done on fibromyalgia in children and teens,” Matallana said. “Current clinical trials, like the MyFi study for teenagers, help in the search to find a safe and effective treatment for JPFS.” Parents who are aware of a family history of fibromyalgia, especially among female family members, should be watchful for the signs and symptoms in their children. Blood relatives of patients with fibromyalgia have a higher prevalence of the disease and tend to be more sensitive to pain than the general population. Because of the lack of treatment options for JPFS, clinical trials for potential drugs are currently under way to determine if they are safe and effective for teens. The MyFi study for teens with fibromyalgia is currently recruiting patients at study sites across the United States.

Proton Therapy Offers Precision Treatment And Fewer Side Effects For Prostate Cancer Patients (NAPSA)—Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in men in the U.S., but if detected early, it has a five-year survival rate of nearly 99 percent. While surgery and radiation therapy may have similar outcomes for early-stage prostate cancer, radiation therapy is the primary option for locally advanced prostate cancer and can also be used for localized prostate cancer. When deciding on a treatment route, the best option is the one that most effectively treats the tumor and spares surrounding healthy tissue and organs, which reduces the risk of side effects. All of this can be accomplished with proton therapy, a treatment option available at the MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center. Proton therapy is an advanced type of radiation treatment that uses a beam of protons to deliver radiation directly to the tumor, destroying cancer cells while sparing surrounding healthy tissue and vital organs. It is because of the precision of proton radiation and its ability to reduce the risk of short- and long-term side effects that Arkansas resident Terry Lavy decided to come to Houston, Texas to undergo proton therapy treatment at MD Anderson. Terry, a 72-year-old retired University of Arkansas professor, received an alarming phone call from his urologist in March 2008; he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer. “My first reaction was shock and disbelief,” Terry said. He sat down with his local urologist to discuss his treatment options, but before making a decision, Terry decided to talk it over with his friends and

Nearly 12 million Americans fight cancer each year.Terry Lavy’s cancer is in remission after proton radiation treatments. family. During this time he spoke to a family friend, who had just received proton therapy at the MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center in Houston. “I was anxious about having surgery and the side effects of the treatment options I had discussed with my doctor,” he said. “But, when my friend told me proton therapy is noninvasive, has fewer side effects and works just as well as other radiation options with no hospitalization, I knew this was the route I wanted to go.” Immediately, Terry called MD Anderson to inquire about proton therapy and scheduled an appointment. In July of 2008, Terry and his wife temporarily relocated to Houston. Terry received proton radiation five days a week for a total of 38 treatments over a two-month period. After his last session, he rang the ceremonial gong symbolizing the end of his cancer treatment. He said he was most impressed with how easy his treatment was.

Terry’s physician, Seungtaek Choi, M.D., an assistant professor of radiation oncology, noted that “proton therapy was an excellent treatment choice for Terry’s cancer because the reduced risk of side effects would allow him to continue his life and enjoy his pastime of fishing and spending time with his grandchildren.” He also said that “Terry is doing well and hasn’t experienced adverse side effects.” “I never felt any pain, weakness or other physical effects from the treatment,” Terry said. “The lack of fatigue is evident because one cannot differentiate between those patients receiving their first treatment or their 38th. Some people received treatment while still working a full-time job and others regularly played 18 holes of golf after each treatment. We all felt fine.” Now, more than three years after he completed treatment, Terry is feeling great and his checkups show no evidence of disease. Since receiving proton therapy, Terry has made it his duty to share his story and tell other prostate cancer patients about the option of proton treatment. Over the years, he has referred over 20 people for proton therapy treatment. “I am so fortunate to have heard about proton therapy, so now I want to be sure to pass my knowledge and experience on to others,” he said. “I’m convinced proton radiation is the way to go for men facing prostate cancer.” For more information a b o u t the MD Anderson P r o t o n Therapy Center, visit www.MDAndersonProton.com or call (866) 632-4PTC (4782).

One Day Without Shoes (NAPSA)—Making a difference for millions of children around the world could be as easy as taking off your shoes. In many developing countries, children walk barefoot for miles every day to get to school and clean water. Shoes protect feet from rough paths, sharp objects, contaminated soil, and the cold and heat. Shoes act as a simple barrier, providing an extra layer of protection against soil-transmitted infections such as podoconiosis, a debilitating disease that affects 4 million people worldwide, and hookworm, a disease that affects 740 million people. Also, many children are not allowed to attend school because shoes are a required part of their uniform. To raise awareness of the millions of children who grow up without shoes, at risk of disease and infection, TOMS is hosting its fifth annual One Day Without Shoes event on April 10. You are encouraged to take part by doing whatever it is you do during that day, without shoes. Go to work, wash your car, play at the park—and when people ask why you’re not wearing shoes, tell them. Last year, more than 1 million people went without shoes at events in over 25 countries around the globe. It was on a trip to Argentina that the company’s founder, Blake Mycoskie, witnessed the devastating effects of children growing up without shoes. He discovered that having a simple pair of shoes can prevent disease and infection and allow access to education. He created his company on a One for

Shoes are given through a network of humanitarian organizations, called Giving Partners, that serve impoverished communities. Each organization provides TOMS shoes to children in need along with pre-existing health, education and community development programs. “We believe that a single idea can make a big difference in the world, as well as encourage others to share their ideas about what they believe can change the world,” said Mycoskie. By working to change the world, social entrepreneurs such as Mycoskie are also changing the marketplace. Amidst a struggling economy, as consumers are more cautious and selective with their purchasing power, many are turning to companies that give, rather than other brands on the market. The company encourages neighborhoods, classrooms and corporations to take a stand and host a One Day Without Shoes event in their community.

Entertainer Lends His Voice To Raise Awareness Of Atrial Fibrillation (NAPSA)—For award-winning singer, songwriter and performer Barry Manilow, it’s always obvious when a song is out of rhythm. But when his heart went out of rhythm 15 years ago, Manilow realized he still had something to learn about rhythm. Manilow is one of the more than 2.5 million Americans living with atrial fibrillation (AFib). AFib is a serious heart disease that causes your heart to race and beat out of rhythm. While some people with AFib may not feel symptoms, others may feel palpitations, shortness of breath, weakness and anxiety. People are often not aware that AFib can have serious consequences, including permanent heart damage, heart attack, heart failure, stroke and death. In fact, they might not truly understand AFib. Manilow admits that he had never heard of the disease before he was diagnosed. “The first time I felt AFib, I was at a point in my life when I was busy and pushing myself very hard,” he recalls. “So, when I first started feeling a strange sensation in my chest, I tried to ignore it. At first, it just felt like my heart was skipping a series of beats every so often.” However, Manilow’s symptoms soon became more intense and prolonged, growing so disruptive over time that he couldn’t focus. “It felt like there was a fish flopping around in my chest,” he recalls. That was when Manilow decided that it was time to take action. “I went to the hospital, and I started working closely with my doctor. Learning that something was wrong with my heart definitely motivated me to take the disease seriously.”

Getting in rhythm with Barry Manilow—the singer, songwriter and performer is one of the more than 2.5 million Americans living with atrial fibrillation (AFib). Manilow spent the next several years in and out of the hospital, struggling to keep his heart in rhythm. He has undergone three surgical procedures and has been cardioverted several times—a procedure where the heart is shocked back into normal rhythm. The constant interruptions eventually became a major obstacle for Manilow’s lifestyle and career. He would go into AFib while on tour, during media interviews and even right before a performance. “Once, I had to be cardioverted on the same day that I was scheduled to do a live concert on national TV for the Fourth of July!” Manilow recalls. “I was literally in the hospital just a few hours before walking on a stage to sing in front of an audience of millions. Talk about bad timing!” Manilow partnered with Get Back in Rhythm, a national AFib education campaign, to increase awareness of the disease. His participation has been valuable not

only for educating the public, but also for making himself a more informed patient. “I honestly had no idea that AFib was so common or that so many people have it. Then, I learned that many patients don’t feel any symptoms at all,” Manilow says. “That blew me away, because when I go into AFib, there’s no way to ignore it. My symptoms are sudden and can be very frightening. They definitely impact my quality of life.” In addition to symptoms, there are long-term health risks that accompany AFib when the disease isn’t managed appropriately. “AFib has a lot of health risks,” Manilow says. “They can become permanent if you don’t get your heart back in rhythm.” Among these risks, being out of rhythm can permanently change the shape of your heart and cause it to work harder and harder over time. The longer your heart’s in AFib, the more difficult it is to get it back in rhythm and the worse the disease will become. Although Manilow’s AFib continues to be a challenge, he hopes that his participation in Get Back in Rhythm can improve awareness of the disease, and serve as an example to other patients living with AFib and their caregivers. “I’ve never shared my experience before. After all that I’ve learned about AFib and its risks, I’m excited to be getting the word out,” says Manilow. “AFib needs more awareness. Patients need more education. No one should settle for a life out of rhythm.” Visit www.GetBackInRhythm. com to take a survey to learn more about whether you are at risk for AFib.

Get Back in Rhythm™ is a national atrial fibrillation education campaign brought to you by Sanofi US LLC.

Living Large With Big-Screen Home Theater (NAPSA)—There’s a new dimension to entertainment, bringing on what many have called a second golden age of 3D. The number of movies filmed in 3D is growing, as well as the number of movies that are being converted from 2D to 3D to boost their box office appeal. Since the smash hit “Avatar,” many more films have been shot in 3D, including “Alice in Wonderland,” “Sanctum,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Mars Needs Moms” and “The Green Hornet.” Films such as “Green Lantern” and “The Smurfs” were filmed in 2D and converted, while “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” and “Puss in Boots” were shot in 2D but also shown in Imax 3D. This year, many more are coming to theaters while old movies are now available in 3D Blu-ray discs for home enjoyment. And with the increasing popularity of this medium, more people want to enjoy the bold images of 3D on a large screen at home. To meet that demand, there’s growing interest and innovation in 3D projectors. For example, Mitsubishi Electric’s new 3D projector, the HC7800D, brings the 3D experience home. The projector uses DLP technology to create exciting, vibrant 3D images in full high-definition, 1080p resolution. When paired with a Blu-ray disc player capable of 3D movie playback, 3D projectors like this bring movie enjoyment to a whole new level never before experienced at home. The projector shows impressive 3D images viewable through its high-performance proprietary active-shutter glasses. The HC7800D also boasts one of the industry’s best 2D to 3D conversion

The latest projectors provide a complete 3D experience at home. technologies that can transform ordinary 2D classics like “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Ben-Hur” into a seamless 3D experience with near-perfect 3D simulation that makes content jump off the screen. The projector’s frame rate conversion technology also produces high-speed image reproduction for showing fine, smooth details and reducing any motion blur, especially in fast action scenes, so even watching sports and games becomes an event to look forward to, whether it’s in 2D or 3D. With a long life of up to 5,000 hours in low mode, the lamp provides years of typical use before you need a new one. With a rich 100K:1 contrast ratio, the projector produces images that are smooth, dazzling and true to the original 2D and 3D content from Blu-ray discs, cable or satellite subscription services.

One Famous And Fuzzy Face (NAPSA)—An award-winning documentary tells the tale behind one famous and fuzzy face: Elmo. A hit at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, “Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey” is the story of the creator behind the lovable and popular “Sesame Street” character Elmo. Narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, the inspiring documentary is a behind-the-scenes look at “Sesame Street” and the art of puppet making and includes rare archival footage. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Constance Marks, the film tells the life story of Kevin Clash, a young man from working-class roots in Baltimore who followed his dream to work with Muppets creator Jim Henson and went on to create one of the world’s most iconic puppets. The film has won numerous awards at film festivals and is now exclusively available on Netflix. Introduced on “Sesame Street” in 1985, Elmo as we know him— the little red monster with the falsetto voice—almost did not exist. It was Clash who reshaped Elmo from original plans calling for a different, gruff persona. Clash began building puppets at the age of 10 and has won multiple Emmys for his work. He is now “Sesame Street”’s co-executive producer and Muppet captain. There is no doubt among families today that his characters have changed lives—including the life

COMMUNITY SERVICE

CommunityCalendar By R. Moore Books 4 Our School • Runs through Apr 30. More & more school systems throughout metro New York are facing budget cuts, possibly losing the vital resources their students need to succeed. The Brooke Jackman Foundation has teamed up with NYMetro Parents to provide a solution that will stock school libraries with thousands of books, while encouraging parents to showcase their support for literacy. “Books 4 Our School,” engages parents to show their school spirit by voting for their children’s schools. A total of 20 schools will receive 75-100 brand new books for their libraries: 10 schools that rally the most parents & get the most votes & 10 schools selected at random. To participate in the challenge, parents simply log on to the “Books 4 Our School” website (www.books4ourschool.org) to register. They will then receive an email containing a link to the online ballot where they can vote. Once their ballot has been submitted, all they need to do is spread the word to get more for their school(s). The top 10 schools receiving the most support & showcase the most spirit via online voting will win 75-100 books for their libraries. Another 10 lucky schools will be chosen at random, so that smaller schools have just as much of an opportunity. Any middle, elementary, or nursery school (public and private), has the chance to win, as does any daycare center, within the five boroughs of New York City, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland and Fairfield Counties. Book Sale • Fri. Apr 27, Sat. Apr 28 9:30am-4:30pm; Sun. Apr 29 1:304:30pm; Mon. Apr 30, 9:30am-2pm, “The Friends of Eastchester’s Public Library Huge Annual Book Sale”.
