hile not yet approved by the F.D.A. (Food And Drug Administration), Reginokine therapy is neither illegal or unethical, and America’s rich and famous are flocking to Dusseldorf, Germany and Dr. Peter Wehling for his special treatments. Yes, Los Angeles Laker Super Star, Kobe Bryant, who journeyed to Dusseldorf last year, and the New York Yankees future Hall of Famer, Alex (A-Rod) Rodriguez, who flew to Germany last winter, are confirmed patients and enthusiasts. So too is the world’s former number one golfer, Vijay Singh. If that is not impressive enough how about Pope John Paul II who the gregarious Dr. Wehling also treated successfully. Wehling’s treatments differ from the established P.R.P. (Platelet rich plasma) blood spinning technique in that in Regenokine the blood is heated before it is spun, in this cell free solution, to increase the concentration of anti-inflammatory proteins, rather than the platelets. Wehling’s background is also a bit unusual. His great uncle was the arch Bishop of Cologne. The uncle, unlike his medical descendent, never played keyboard in two bands, one jazz, in his leisure time. Here’s what Singh says about his treatments.“ The results were incredible. It’s like somebody has put oil all over your body. It lubes you up, and you’re able to move more freely, especially pain-free.” Sounds good to me…and Kobe…and A-Rod…..

For the Week of July 26, 2012 August 1, 2012

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Sometimes as challenging as life can be, you take chances and push yourself further, Aries. This could prove a week to do some risk-taking and exploring new ideas.

Don’t set yourself up for frustration, Scorpio. Avoid any people who cause you conflict and any activities that bring you grief. Enjoy yourself instead.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 It could take a lot to raise your ire this week, Taurus. However, if your mood is already set to simmer, you may have a full-blown boiling over at the slightest taunt.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, although you didn’t think things could get much busier, this week you will find more on your plate. Don’t be overly concerned. There will be time to get things done.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 It is easy to bury something and ignore it, Gemini, but it’s not always easy to face a problem head-on. Make an effort to figure out issues that keep recurring in your life.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Take a few moments to focus on your future, Cancer, rather than just what needs to be done in the present. Open your mind to real long-term goals.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Arguments can quickly turn stressful, Leo. So try your best to avoid any confrontations this week and your body will thank you. Unresolved issues could pop up.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 You are overly focused on the minute details of the things you do, Virgo. But somehow the bigger picture has escaped your perusal lately. Remedy that this week.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Your curiosity could get the best of you this week, Libra. You may end up delving into things that are better left unturned. Take a step back and find a new focus.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20 More enjoyable things are on the horizon, Capricorn, and you could find yourself distracted by so many enjoyable activities. Try to schedule one per week.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 No one can solve your conflicts better than you, Aquarius. Although your options seem to be a little stifled as of late, you’ll find the way to impart changes.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 The planets are giving you the cosmic go-ahead to get things done, Pisces. So don’t delay your actions any longer.

Helping Communities Prepare For Wildfires (NAPSA)—For the nearly 70,000 U.S. communities threatened by wildfires, it isn’t a matter of if, but when fire will be a natural occurrence in their ecosystem. Wildfires cost billions of dollars each year in suppression costs and damage to homes, infrastructure, the economy and resources. In addition, wildfires put both civilian and firefighter lives at risk. But there is help. The nation’s leaders in wildfire mitigation have partnered to develop Fire Adapted Communities, a prefire strategy to help communities at risk of wildfire save lives and reduce risk to homes, infrastructure and resources. The U.S. Forest Service and the National Fire Protection Association partnered with a coalition of other prominent nonprofit organizations and government agencies to create the Fire Adapted Communities initiative. The campaign website, www.Fireadapted.org, provides straightforward information on national programs, tools and funding sources to help communities at risk from wildfire prepare for fire before it starts. The program takes a community-based approach, encouraging homeowners, land managers, civic leaders and first responders to take proactive steps to make their communities fire adapted. The Ad Council has partnered with the U.S. Forest Service to help deliver the Fire Adapted Communities message nationwide. This national public service advertising campaign raises awareness that those living in fire-prone communities must prepare in advance to mitigate wildfire damage when it occurs. The more proactive actions a community takes, the more fire adapted it becomes. Partnering to Reduce Wildfire Risk According to U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell, the campaign will help individual homeowners

A new Web portal is available to help communities deal with the threat of wildfires. and communities safeguard their homes from wildfire threats. Said Tidwell, “We are pleased to partner with the Ad Council and the National Fire Protection Association to help educate communities— especially those next to wooded areas—on simple steps they can take to help protect their property and families when wildfires strike.” A History of Collaboration The campaign was created pro bono by advertising agency Draftfcb, which has worked with the Ad Council and U.S. Forest Service for more than 68 years, to address the issue of wildfire prevention with the iconic character Smokey Bear and his famous tagline “Only You Can Prevent Wildfires.” Said Peggy Conlon, president and CEO of the Ad Council, “We hope that our efforts will influence property owners and community leaders in fire-prone areas to take the necessary steps to prepare in advance of a wildfire, improving the safety and resiliency of their communities.” To learn more, visit Fire Adapted.org.

Improving A Home’s Value And Curb Appeal (NAPSA)—Selling a house in today’s market can be a challenge. The solution may be to think outside the box—or, in this case, outside the structure. In the past, a little paint and some minor renovations might have done the trick, but with so many homes for sale, homeowners are finding interesting new ways to boost curb appeal and buyer interest. While steps such as cleaning up and investing in some landscapes can still deliver results, more homeowners are attracting buyer interest with a system of exterior insulation known as “Outsulation®.” Exterior insulation has been shown to lower energy bills and raise buyer interest. Susan Malone of Warwick, Rhode Island, used Outsulation by Dryvit to replace the drab clapboard on her home with a new stonelike exterior complete with architectural flourishes and decorative window accents. The makeover raised her appraisal value and attracted new buyers. “The transformation of my home has been nothing short of amazing—both from the standpoint of how much more beautiful it is and the effect the renovation had on increasing the value of my home. I have been able to save so much money on my energy bills,” said Malone. She used Outsulation by Dryvit, which lets you create an entirely new image. It can be adhesively or mechanically fastened over a building code– approved water-resistive barrier to plywood or OSB substrate. The system offers the look of any traditional finish, including brick, limestone, stucco and stone, plus three-dimensional

Besides improving the way it looks, such exterior insulation makes a home more energy efficient. details like arches, window borders, decorative columns and dramatic doorways. Besides improving the way it looks, such exterior insulation makes a home more energy efficient. It reduced air leakage in Malone’s home by 19 percent—the equivalent of closing up a hole in the wall that would be the size of a soccer ball, or of leaving your front door open for 25 minutes every day. The Outsulation system reduced Malone’s energy bills by 35 percent and helped dampen noise. “My dogs used to wake me up barking at just about any noise they would hear, including the airplanes constantly coming and going over the house,” said Malone, who lives in a fly zone. “But since the renovation, the dogs don’t hear all the sounds they used to, so we are all getting a lot more sleep.” For more information, call (800) 556-7752; in Canada, call (800) 263-3308; or visit www.dryvit homes.com.

Keep Your Lawn Mower Running Right (NAPSA)—Lawn care is a lot easier when you have a mower that starts quickly and gets the job done week after week. The key to making that happen can be as simple as doing a few easy and inexpensive mower maintenance tasks once a year. “It’s like preventive medicine for your equipment,” says Synoilva Shaw, a Briggs & Stratton marketing coordinator and lawn mower expert. “For a few dollars and few minutes once a year, you can make your lawn mower last longer and run better.” For the typical push mower, an annual lawn mower tune-up includes changing the oil, spark plug and oil filter and adding a fuel preservative. It takes about 30 minutes and provides great benefits, including: •A lawn mower that starts easily and runs smoothly at full power; •Extended mower life, potentially avoiding major repairs; •Reduced engine emissions because the engine will run cleaner; •A small savings in the amount of gasoline used. “Even homeowners who have never done a mower tune-up can do it right the first time,” adds Shaw. In fact, Todd Teske, the CEO of Briggs & Stratton Corporation, demonstrates how easily it is done by tuning up his own lawn mower on a how-to video on the Briggs & Stratton YouTube channel. The company offers all-in-one

Giving your lawn mower a tuneup is a lot easier and more important than many people realize. tune-up kits that include everything needed to do a tune-up: the right amount of oil, an air filter, a fuel filter for riding mowers, a spark plug and fuel preservative. The kits are available at Briggs & Stratton dealers, home improvement stores or online at www.briggsandstratton.com. The firm also helps homeowners dispose of their used mower engine oil easily and at no cost at participating Briggs & Stratton dealers. The used oil can be dropped off in any closed container. To find a dealer, visit recy clemoweroil.com. As the largest maker of gas engines for outdoor power equipment, the company encourages homeowners to maintain the estimated 65 million lawn mowers in the United States as both a costsaving measure and an environmentally responsible action.

Lightening The Home-Buying Financial Load (NAPSA)—Buying a home today involves making choices that can save you time and money—up front and over the long term. These tips can help you avoid delays and hold down costs. •Shop for the right mortgage. Before determining which mortgage product is right for you, familiarize yourself with all available loan products. For example, if you are looking to purchase a home with a down payment of less than 20 percent, be sure to compare a loan guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) with a conventional lowdown-payment mortgage backed by private mortgage insurance (MI). Because of higher premiums for FHA mortgages that took effect this year, many borrowers find that conventional mortgages with MI offer lower monthly payments. Ask your mortgage professional for a price comparison. •Lower your interest rate. Borrowers can often reduce their mortgage interest rate by paying down “points.” Often referred to as a buydown, one point equates to about 1 percent of your loan. If you plan to stay in the home for more than five years, it could be worth the cost. •Don’t delay shopping for homeowner’s insurance. Homeowner’s insurance is required on a home purchase to protect yourself and your lender in case of vandalism, fire and other unplanned occurrences. Unfortunately, this critical part of the home-buying process is often overlooked by many buyers, leaving them stuck choosing an expensive policy at the last minute. To avoid this situation, shop for homeowner’s insurance early to allow yourself ample time to find the best coverage at the most affordable rates. •Invest in home and pest inspections. A home inspection

Use a mortgage interest rate calculator to determine if paying down points is a smart move for you financially. can determine the quality and condition of the house you are seeking to purchase and can reveal potential problems such as a weakened roof, poor structural integrity or antiquated plumbing. While the typical cost is between $300 and $600, the value or benefit to you is usually far greater. A pest inspection can determine if there are any unwanted guests (e.g., termites, rats, roaches) in the home before you buy. These inspections range from $50 to $150, but the benefits far outweigh what could be a costly proposition to eliminate on your own. •Know your closing costs. Closing costs include fees for the appraisal, lender, title and recording. These costs can be confusing and can really add up. In order to protect consumers from excessive fees, lenders are required to provide a good-faith estimate and a closing statement that spells out the costs associated with purchasing a home. Request that your lender provide these documents in advance of closing day so you’ll know what additional payments may be expected of you. To learn more about low downpayment mortgages, visit www. SmarterMI.com.

“One Of A Kind” Daylily Program Celebrates 25 Years (NAPSA)—All-American Daylilies celebrates 25 years of scientifically proven superior performance testing nationwide. This daylily test program is unlike any other in the nation; perhaps in the world. Based on a scientific methodology that evaluates daylilies on 52 characteristics, this program began in 1987 in response to the need to “sift” through more than 40,000 different varieties to create a benchmark for daylilies and identify the best varieties. The All-American Daylily winners that have emerged from this rigorous testing have established quite a track record for themselves. Not only have the very best cultivars been identified, but their availability across the U.S. has allowed home gardeners everywhere to validate these varieties in their own garden. Since the first winner, “Black-Eyed Stella,” was announced in 1994, 18 additional varieties have qualified for the coveted award and been distributed to garden centers nationwide in the official “blue pot.” More than a million All-Americans have found their way into home gardens in virtually every state across the country. It appears that All-American daylilies have become a household name among serious daylily gardeners. “Black-Eyed Stella” and “Bitsy” are known for near continuous blooming and superior landscape performance, whereas “Dream Soufflé” and “Lavender Vista” ™ scored highest in bloom beauty and overall performance. The test program verified anecdotal information that most daylilies natu-

Lady Elizabeth (Hemerocallis Lady Elizabeth) features sparkling diamond-dusted white blooms. For decades, near-white to white daylilies have been considered weak novelties best grown by collectors, but this new flower has defied these stereotypes by delivering dependable performance and a hearty display of blooms throughout the growing season. Lady Elizabeth blooms 30 to 110 days per year in USDA zones 4 through 10 and adds a stunning highlight to any garden or container. rally fall into two distinct categories: Landscape (performance) and Exhibition (beauty). On rare occasions, a variety will qualify as a winner in both categories, such as “Summer Valentine” and “Leebea Orange Crush.” Typically, most daylilies perform well in only two USDA hardiness zones. However, All-American winner varieties must perform in the top 15 percent of daylilies across at least five USDA zones. As daylily breeding has increased through the years, there has been a plethora of awesomely beautiful blooms come onto the scene. This

has brought the potential for greater bloom beauty into the program, but also the challenge of identifying those that also meet the performance requirements. “Lady Elizabeth,” the most recent winner, is a prime example of this. For decades, near-white to white daylilies have been considered weak novelties best grown by collectors, but this new plant has defied these stereotypes by delivering dependable performance and a hearty display of beautiful, diamond-dusted white blooms throughout the growing season. It is stunning either en masse or as a focal accent plant. Regardless of your desired garden application, there is an AllAmerican best suited for that use. They are the perfect perennial for borders, mass plantings, balcony and patio containers, ground covers or focal accents. Try a stunning double border of “Frankly Scarlet” (4” sun-fast red) or “Red Volunteer” (6–7” red) behind “Black-Eyed Stella” (gold with red eye). For maximum, long-term color, you can plant a mass of “Buttered Popcorn,” which has been called a large-bloomed Stella de Oro, due to its constant blooming. Daylilies are perfect for those with a creative mind. The possibilities for use are endless. Perhaps the best idea of all is to create an All-American Daylily garden and collect them all! Gardeners have been reaping the rewards of 25 years of unmatched daylily testing and there is so much more to come!

Getting The Iron You Need Without The Side Effects (NAPSA)—According to the World Health Organization, iron deficiency is the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world, affecting up to a third of the population. Iron is an essential mineral and is required to transport oxygen throughout your body. Exhaustion and fatigue set in when you’re low on iron, which can affect everything from brain function to your immune system. Do You Need More Iron? Your daily iron needs depend on a number of factors, including age, gender and overall health. While many people can get the iron they need from foods such as red meat, leafy greens and egg yolks, sometimes supplementation is needed. Initial symptoms of iron deficiency can include fatigue, general lack of energy and decreased ability to concentrate. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or think you’re not getting enough iron, ask your doctor if iron supplementation can help. Iron Deficient? Research Your Options Whether in your diet or a daily supplement, iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb. For example, menstruating women need to absorb only 2 mg of iron daily, yet most traditional iron supplements contain 50 to 65 mg. Of this, very little is absorbed. The result is excess iron, which can lead to uncomfortable side effects such as stomach irritation, nausea, vomiting, constipation and other gastrointestinal problems. To minimize the likelihood of such side effects, look for a lowdose supplement with a high absorption rate. This will let the

Just as not enough iron in your diet can hurt your health, so can too much. Fortunately, there are solutions. body absorb the iron it needs without the excess. Spatone pur-Absorb Iron has a clinically proven high absorption rate and is 100 percent natural. With only 5 mg of iron and a higher absorption rate than many conventional iron supplements, it delivers the right amount of absorbed iron in a lower, gentler dose. Talk to your doctor. If you do need iron, remember: A lower-dose iron supplement with high absorption means side effects are less likely. pur-Absorb can be found at CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid.

Lawn And Garden Watering Tips (NAPSA)—Scorching-hot weather can drain even the most water-smart landscape. Here are a few tips to help make the most of the water applied to your lawn and garden while protecting your landscape from the harsh heat: Let it Soak The greatest waste of water comes from applying too much, too often—much of the water is never absorbed. Instead of watering for one long session, water a few times for shorter periods and take 15-minute breaks in between each session. This will allow water to soak in, while minimizing runoff. Also, check to see if water is penetrating six to eight inches beneath the surface of the soil. If not, then another cycle may be needed to encourage root growth. Watch the Clock Water in the morning when the sun is low, winds are calm and temperatures are cool and less conducive to evaporation. Consider Dripping When it comes to watering individual trees, flowerbeds, potted containers or other nongrassy areas, consider applying water directly to the roots using low-volume drip irrigation. This will reduce water waste through evaporation or runoff, and will prevent unwanted weeds from growing. Mulch it Good A great way to conserve water and help plants stay healthy is to spread mulch in shrub beds, tree rings and flower gardens. Mulch is a protective covering that is placed around the base of plants, preventing evaporation and weed growth. Mulching helps drainage, encourages root development and cools the soil—reducing water use during hot summer months.

Using an automated irrigation system is one of the best ways to keep your lawn and landscape beautiful and healthy. Get Automated Using an automated irrigation system is one of the best ways to keep your lawn and landscape beautiful and healthy, while minimizing water waste. Automatic underground sprinkler systems distribute water evenly, preventing overwatering and ensuring that the watering is done at the right time. If you still use a hose to water, then consider using an automated garden hose timer to transform it into an automatic water-saving tool. For example, Rain Bird’s Electronic Garden Hose Sprinkler Timer is a lowcost, battery-powered timer that attaches directly to the outdoor faucet and allows you to schedule watering automatically. More watering tips are available from Rain Bird at www.rain bird.com.

Backroom Deals Threaten American Interests (NAPSA)—Billions of dollars in mining assets belonging to companies like Alcoa, BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, American oil company Hyperdynamics Corporation and their shareholders could be handed off to middlemen thanks to a secret deal struck by the government of Guinea. Not long after the Obama administration lifted sanctions against Guinea, a new mining code was passed that gives 15 percent of every mine in Guinea to the state mining company free of charge, including another 20 percent at market rates. This law will cost billions of dollars in current assets to U.S. and European freemarket businesses and their shareholders. The agreement, which may be in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the Dodd-Frank Act, has taken place between Guinea and a well-known businessman known for trading diamonds in Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo named Walter Hennig, who is based out of South Africa. The deal could prove an embarrassing election year misstep for the Obama administration, which restored the country to privileged trade partner status last October. The deal, which puts billions of dollars of U.S. investments at risk, was made between Mvelaphanda Holdings, whose founder is listed in the United Nations report on illegal transactions under the Oilfor-Food Program, and the U.S.based firm Och-Ziff. Och-Ziff’s billionaire CEO has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to U.S. politicians and PACs and continues to provide support for candidates in the upcoming elections.

Recently, a new law gave 15 percent of every mine in Guinea to the state mining company, free of charge. This could cost U.S. companies billions of dollars. Widely documented media reports published recently show that last April, five months before the code became law, Mohamed Lamine Fofana, the mining minister, agreed to a $25m loan with Palladino Capital, an investment vehicle registered in the British Virgin Islands. The deal was signed by Fofana, Kerfalla Yansane, the finance minister, and Samuel Mebiane, listed as “proxy holder” for Palladino. Hennig set up Palladino Holdings in 2003 as a vehicle for “mining, energy and other assets in Africa.” The company is close partners with U.S. investment company Och-Ziff. As reported in London’s Sunday Times recently, the terms of the loan are rumored to include a provision that if the cash-strapped government defaults, Palladino can convert the debt into a 30 percent stake in the operations of the national mining company. This would potentially be worth billions. Simandou alone—owned by Rio Tinto, China’s state giant Chinalco, resources tycoon Beny Steinmetz and Vale, a Brazilian iron ore group—is worth at least $10 billion.

The Palladino agreement was signed less than a month after Hennig signed a memorandum of understanding under which another vehicle, Floras Bell, would become a “partner” with the government in the mining industry. Guinea has the world’s largest reserve of bauxite and is home to Simandou, a huge undeveloped iron ore deposit. These resources are vital to U.S. business and national security interests. Some people have begun to protest the asset seizure tactics and the government has recently said publicly that it would repay the money, but so far Western governments appear, for the most part, unconcerned over the backroom deal. American oil company Hyperdynamics Corporation, Alcoa, BHP Billiton, steel group ArcelorMittal and Rusal, the Russian aluminum producer, all have assets in the country affected by the new code and each stands to lose billions. Many individuals, some politicians in the States and Europe, and some entities like the World Bank have been calling on political oversight committees and watchdog groups to further look into the recent Guinea laws and those involved. The United States may be forced to intervene, having previously signed an investment guarantee agreement with Guinea that offers political risk insurance to American investors through the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). If this occurs, then the issue may not only gain the attention of legal oversight, but could very well become an issue for both Obama and Congress to contend with.

Act Now For Tax Savings Later (NAPSA)—The average American must work 107 days to earn enough to pay federal, state and local taxes in 2012. Although nearly 30 percent of our wages go to taxes, many Americans do little in the way of tax planning. Tax planning involves reviewing tax benefits and implications of your income, expenditures, investments and retirement plans. How can you maximize the benefits of each in the most taxefficient way? Planning may also include taking a close look at your income tax return. “It’s never too late for tax planning,” said TaxACT spokesperson Jessi Dolmage. “There are things you can do anytime of year to maximize your tax savings. But the earlier you start, the better.” Dolmage shares several ideas for your tax planning checklist this year and every year: •Review your retirement plan. Can you contribute more in order to decrease your taxable income? If you don’t have a retirement plan, consider starting a 401(k) or IRA. If you want to start an IRA, remember the tax differences between traditional and Roth IRAs. Avoid early withdrawals, which often involve additional taxes. •Did you claim the standard deduction last year but have significant expenses for medical care, mortgage interest, state and local taxes, unreimbursed employee expenses, or charitable contributions? Review which expenses qualify in IRS Publication 17 at www.irs.gov and consider paying an additional mortgage payment or medical expenses before December 31, 2012. That extra payment could make it more advantageous to itemize deductions. Keep receipts and detailed documentation for all deductions throughout the year. •Check tax return filing status options. You may qualify for more than one status, especially if you have qualified dependents. Changing your status may increase your standard deduction. IRS Publication 17 includes filing status and dependent criteria. •Check your federal withholding, especially if you’ve married, had children, bought a home, earned investment income or made capital gains profit in 2012. Conventional wisdom says withhold just enough tax to meet your tax liability. Although withholding too

A little tax planning now can help you save big on next year’s tax return. much means a refund, you’re also giving Uncle Sam an interest-free loan. Withhold too little and you’ll owe taxes plus possible penalties and interest. You can change withholding anytime of year by submitting a revised Form W-4 to your employer. TaxACT Free Federal Edition offers a free withholding calculator and helps complete new W-4s at www.taxact.com. •Paying tuition? The American Opportunity Tax Credit is scheduled to expire after 2012, so take advantage now. If you’ll be short of the $2,500 maximum credit amount by December 31, consider paying some of your 2013 spring tuition before year’s end to make up the difference. Details about all education tax breaks, including the expanded student loan interest deduction, can be found at www.taxact.com/college-tax-whiz and in IRS Publication 970. •If your will includes property, update the financial and family information and evaluate how scheduled tax changes will impact the value. The federal estate tax exemption for 2012 is $5.12 million, taxed at 35 percent. After 2012, the exemption will drop to $1 million, taxed at 55 percent. Dolmage warns taxpayers to be prepared for last-minute tax law changes. “Seventy-seven tax breaks expired at the end of 2011,” said Dolmage. “Congress will likely extend many of them after the presidential election, but we’re not sure when. Regardless of when legislation passes, tax solutions like TaxACT will update their programs right away. You can get a head start and estimate your 2012 federal and state taxes free starting in October at taxact.com.” For more planning information, visit www.irs.gov and www.taxact. com/taxinfo.

Free Library Service Helps Blind Pianist Keep On Playing (NAPSA)—Ayaka Isono began studying piano at age 3 in her native Japan. After moving to the United States and graduating from Indiana University, she embarked on a successful career as a concert pianist. But when she was 29, she suddenly lost her eyesight because of a rare retinal disorder. A decade later, Isono, who lives in the San Francisco Bay area, is still performing—including a concert in Japan this past spring. She also gives private piano lessons to both sighted and visually impaired children and adults. Isono has been able to continue playing the piano thanks to the braille music scores she receives from the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS). “I can’t imagine my career without them,” she says. “I really can’t.” NLS, part of the Library of Congress, has been producing and circulating audiobooks and braille books for more than 80 years. It also has the world’s largest collection of braille music scores, according to John Hanson, head of the NLS Music Section. “In the United States, there is no other source for a wide range of braille music, whether one is considering variety of instruments, types of music or extent of repertoire,” he says. But that’s not all that NLS offers music lovers. The collection includes more than 30,000 braille, audio and large-print music scores, texts and instructional materials, including some titles developed solely for NLS. Six music magazines are also available by subscription to registered users of the program. That is in addition to many music-related audiobooks and braille books in the broader NLS

Audiobooks, braille books and music materials are delivered and returned by mail, postage free. NLS also provides the necessary digital playback equipment.

Consumers Have Affordable Options When It Comes To Floor Covering (NAPSA)—Buttery-soft carpet, weathered hardwood and hard-asdiamonds surface treatments are some of the latest trends consumers will encounter the next time they shop for floor covering. That’s the word from scouts and experts attending one of the home market’s top international flooring trade shows—Surfaces. The show is sponsored by the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA). Reports from the show offer some insight on the latest products and trends in flooring. Less Is More Companies are concentrating on products that are sensible, low maintenance and easy on the budget. The new products making headlines include supersoft carpets that clean up “good as new” with lifetime stain warranties; affordable vinyl mimicking genuine stone; hardwood with precision detailing; and hard-surface flooring that has built-in antimicrobial properties. Vinyl flooring today offers the look of stone, ceramic tiles and hardwood—sometimes so closely that you have to get on your hands and knees to tell the difference. These products can put good looks at the feet of all homeowners at a fraction of the cost and with less maintenance than their higher-cost authentic cousins. Prices have come down on many eco-friendly floors thanks to high demand in the commercial industry. As a result, more people can install top-quality hardwood, bamboo or cork for several dollars per square foot less than a year ago. High Style, Low Maintenance A number of products across all flooring categories promise to cut maintenance, cleaning and care time. For example, hardwood manu-

Products that come with lifetime “satisfaction-guaranteed” warranties and carpets that clean up “good as new” are among the latest trends in floor covering. facturers have introduced surface treatments that are as hard as diamonds. There are even new products said to have wear layers that can withstand just about any kind of wear and tear—large families, animals, dirt and grime. Other surfaces, including laminate and vinyl, are touting easyto-maintain wear-surface durability. Some are equipped with built-in antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, as well as stain resistance. In the carpet category, new products have built-in stain resistance, odor reducers, air fresheners and luxuriously soft fibers that maintain their integrity for years. Weathered and Reclaimed Weathered and distressed floors are taking hold across multiple categories. This finish increases sturdiness and allows the product to withstand the high traffic and heavy wear of large families and pets. In addition to distressed looks, homeowners now have the option of “reclaimed” wood floors. These floors are recycled from dismantled buildings, disassembled furni-

ture, wood and agricultural scrap. Repurposing saves money, is green and offers unique, designerquality looks. High Style and Durable Luxury Manufacturers are also introducing flooring of all varieties with add-ons such as fur, tassels, 14K gold and Swarovski crystals. Hard surfaces, including tile, are incorporating precious metals while soft surfaces, like carpet and area rugs, are showcasing jewelrygrade crystals, animal skins and metallic fibers in the final products. “Consumer demands for durability, low maintenance and lower prices have led to innovation and variety across all categories,” said Tom Jennings of the WFCA. Jennings says that consumers expect their purchases to withstand the test of time and be eco friendly. As a result, manufacturers have created a variety of low-maintenance, affordable options that meet the demand for comfort and style. Covering Consumer Interests The WFCA is the floor covering industry’s largest advocacy organization, representing floor covering retailers, contractors and allied service providers throughout North America. The Association’s website offers detailed information and practical tips on every flooring category available, including carpet, hardwood, laminate, ceramic, porcelain, resilient, vinyl, cork, stone, and area rugs. In addition, it provides answers to many common floor-covering questions. It also offers a searchable database of reputable retail members across the country. All users need to do is enter their zip codes to receive a list of local retailers. For more information, visit www.WFCA.org and www.WFCAPRO.org.

Take Advantage Of The Benefits Of Credit Cards And Debit Cards (NAPSA)—While consumers have become savvy when it comes to managing their money, many could take greater advantage of using either a credit card or a debit card by better understanding the benefits of each. Below are considerations to help individuals choose for themselves when the benefits of using a credit card outweigh those of using a debit card, or vice versa. Benefits of Debit Cards: •Withdraw Cash When Making Purchases—Debit cards not only allow access to cash from ATMs, but also the ability to withdraw money when making a purchase. •No Balance Due at Month’s End—Charges made using a debit card are pulled directly from a checking account and not added to a credit card balance. Some consumers like the freedom of not worrying about a balance at the end of the month and are able to better establish a monthly budget. •N o D u e D a t e s — To a v o i d interest charges, credit card users must pay close attention to due dates and pay off their balance. Debit cards, on the other hand, pull money from a checking account immediately, eliminating worry about when a balance will be due and any interest that could result from missing the payment due date. Benefits of Credit Cards: •E a r n R e w a r d s o n D a i l y Purchases—Many credit cards earn rewards. And if consumers pay off their credit card when the payment is due, no interest will accrue on everyday purchases such as gas and groceries. •Building Credit History— Using a credit card responsibly may help to build good credit, which may make it easier to get loans and better interest rates. •Funds to Make Large or Unexpected Purchases—Whether it’s a large purchase, such as new furniture, or an unexpected expense like a last-minute home repair, credit cards offer access to

Use one card to make purchases more convenient and secure. spending limits typically greater than one’s checking account balance. •Security Benefits—Credit cards offer the security of funds not being tied directly to a checking account, as they are with debit cards. So if fraudulent activity occurs, the funds in a checking account are not depleted. However, Fifth Third Bank’s new DUO Card, which is the first and only option available to combine the benefits and features of both a credit card and a debit card into one, allows consumers to use a debit card without sacrificing this security feature. With this card, only transactions made using a security PIN are tied directly to a checking account (i.e., debit purchases), which adds an additional layer of protection. The decision as to when to use a credit card versus a debit card is a personal one, as there are benefits to both, and no two people manage their money in exactly the same way. With options like Fifth Third Bank’s DUO Card, these personal decisions are that much easier— with the security, convenience and flexibility of both a credit card and a debit card all in one.

Five Innovative Solutions To Help Women Small-Business Owners Grow And Adapt To Today’s Economy (NAPSA)—The recession was tough on many small-business owners. But new research shows that many of today’s womenowned businesses have adapted and emerged stronger from their experiences during the tough economy. “Small Business: Lessons of the Recession” is an indepth look by Chase Card Services, the National Federation of Independent Business, and the Center for Women’s Business Research at how women smallbusiness owners fared during the recession. The research provides many valuable insights, including five innovative ideas that many women small-business owners can apply to their business plans no matter how the economy is doing: 1. Social media is not just for socializing. It became a valuable business tool during the recession. Half the women now use social media compared to 4 percent before the recession. Of those surveyed, 56 percent said social media is “very important” or “important” to their business. Social media sites are free platforms that can easily connect business owners to customers—a cost-effective way to promote your business. 2. It’s wise to constantly examine your customer base. Although 54 percent focused on generating new business among existing customers during the recession, one in four are now marketing to a customer base that’s different from prerecession targets. Always think critically about your customer base and make your decisions on the numbers. Targeting new types of customers requires a thorough analysis of profit and growth potential. 3. It’s good to become in-

Nearly two out of five womenowned businesses increased their involvement during the recession in civic, social or school activities to increase exposure for their business while creating value for their community. It can be a particularly cost-effective way to strengthen sales efforts. 4. It pays to control costs. During the recession, 45 percent of the firms focused on controlling costs as a remedy to the economic times, while 31 percent concentrated on increased sales. Looking back, 59 percent feel their focus area was the right choice. 5. The right kind of help can pay off. Nearly a quarter of women-owned businesses that sought outside help to control costs or increase sales during the recession had slightly better sales records than those that did not. It’s important, however, to do your research and set expectations; otherwise, it can cost you more in the long run. Small businesses are the lifeblood of many communities in the

United States. Chase Card Services uses its financial expertise to create innovative products that help small businesses succeed.

Tips On Taming A Computer For More Speed, Less Trouble (NAPSA)—Most people depend on personal computers for so much in daily life and when the computer seems sluggish, unresponsive or just generally underperforming, it can lead to frustration. Fortunately, if your computer is misbehaving, there are five simple steps you can take to help get it back up to speed. 1. Defrag Your Disk. Computer hard drives get fragmented when programs are installed and uninstalled and files are added and removed. The files end up scattered around the hard drive so it’s difficult for the drive to find everything you want in a timely manner. The built-in disk defragment tool can keep your computer running efficiently. 2. Stay Healthy. Just like humans, when a computer has a virus or is infected with spyware, it becomes sluggish and performance suffers. Keep your antivirus program up to date and fight off cyber attackers. Run a full system scan every three to six months. Install an anti-spyware program, too. 3. Don’t Be a Digital Hoarder. Whenever you install software updates, download images, save music files, edit documents or browse the Web, your computer accumulates files and programs, most of which are unnecessary. Use the built-in uninstaller to remove those unneeded files. 4. Blow it Out. Over time, the inside of your computer will accumulate a “blanket” of dust, which may result in a temperature rise inside your computer case. Open your computer case and blow out the dust using a canister of compressed air. Be sure to blow air through all fans in order to thoroughly clean them. 5. Upgrade Your Memory. Many computer performance issues can be resolved with a do-

Taming a troubled computer may be easier than you think. it-yourself (RAM) memory upgrade. Anytime you open your e-mail, surf the Web, watch a video, type a paper, play a game or just plain turn on your computer, the computer is using its internal memory. When a computer does not have enough internal memory to properly run its programs, it becomes slow and unresponsive. Installing computer memory is a fairly simple process that requires no special tools or skills. However, finding the correct upgrade can sometimes be confusing as there are hundreds of thousands of options to choose from. Crucial.com makes finding and installing the correct memory upgrade simple with free, easy-touse online tools designed to help you quickly find a compatible memory upgrade. Using the Crucial Memory Advisor ™ tool, you choose your computer make and model from a drop-down menu to see recommended memory upgrade options. Or, use the Crucial® System Scanner tool to automatically scan the computer to determine the current memory and view recommended compatible upgrades.

Cord Blood Banking: A Lifesaving Decision by Rallie McAllister, M.D. (NAPSA)—Expecting couples face dozens of important decisions—one of the most critical is whether to save their baby’s umbilical cord blood. They’ll only have one opportunity to do it: in the moments following their baby’s birth. Umbilical cord blood is a rich source of stem cells, which are considered to be the master cells of the body. For more than two decades, cord blood stem cells have been used in transplant medicine to treat a wide variety of serious diseases, including leukemia and other cancers and blood, immune and metabolic disorders. One of the most promising areas of stem cell research is regenerative medicine, in which an individual’s own stem cells are used to repair damaged or diseased tissues and organs. Clinical trials are now under way to evaluate the benefits of using a child’s cord blood stem cells in the treatment of type 1 diabetes, hearing loss, cerebral palsy and other brain injuries. “When cord blood cells are used to treat an illness, they’re simply administered to the individual intravenously, like a blood transfusion,” said obstetrician-gynecologist Marra Francis, M.D. Once in the body, stem cells can trigger natural repair processes by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow to injured or diseased areas.

Saving a baby’s cord blood can mean better health for the whole family. Parents may choose to donate their baby’s cord blood to a public bank or store it in a private banking facility, but most times, it’s discarded as medical waste. Donation to public banks is free but the cord blood is not reserved for the family’s exclusive use. Parents who want to ensure that their baby’s cord blood will be available for their family’s future use can choose to store it with a private cord-blood bank. In many cases, interest-free payment plans and gift registries are available at private cord-blood banks. For more information, visit www.cordblood.com. •Dr. McAllister is the cofounder of MommyMDGuides.com and the co-author of “The Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy and Birth” and “The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year,” which all feature tips that doctors who are also mothers use for their own families.

Tips For A Mess-Free Barbecue (NAPSA)—More Americans are firing up their grills for backyard cookouts—and many say the reason for grilling’s popularity is that it’s relaxing. According to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association, Americans say backyard barbecues are more relaxing than dining out—especially if you don’t let cleanup and prep work spoil the mood. Rather than deal with the stresses of barbecue messes, here are some tips on throwing a mess-free cookout at home: •U s e d i s p o s e r s i n s t e a d o f trash cans. Chicken, ribs and burgers are among the most popular grilled foods, according to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association. Many people may be surprised to learn that instead of tossing extra meat scraps and bones in a trash can, it’s possible to reduce large amounts of smelly trash by putting virtually any type of food—even bones— down a food waste disposer with advanced grinding capabilities, such as InSinkErator’s Evolution Excel ® with three-stage grind technology. •Serve food in decorative plastic containers instead of on platters. Dirty dishes can pile up fast, so serve food in decorative plastic containers that double up as serving plates and refrigerator storage. While guests are eating, you can also protect food from bugs and flies with the lids. •Reduce a messy kitchen by serving side dishes that can be prepared the day before. And while most cooks know the trick of marinating meats in baggies, do this the day before as well. In addition to having more-flavorful food, you’ll have no need for any

To reduce mess, cut fruits and vegetables by the sink and toss waste down your food waste disposer. messy food prep on the day of the barbecue. •Cut fruits and vegetables beside the sink. Vegetable peels and fruit rinds can pile up quickly in garbage cans. As you’re preparing fruits and vegetables for side dishes, cut them up beside the sink and toss them down the drain as you go along. Your disposer will thank you for this, as hard materials (like fruit pits) help scrape the inside of the grind chamber, removing any buildup. •Make kebabs with small pieces of leftover meats and vegetables: Leftover grilled steak, chicken and veggies may be too little for a stand-alone meal, but put them onto skewers for a fun lunch or dinner the following day. This keeps you from tossing the leftovers and avoids unnecessary clutter in the fridge from extra baggies and containers. For more information about disposers, visit www.InSink Erator.com.

Retirement In Need Of Reinvention

Contest winner Joan Clary was thrilled to meet actress Betty White. (NAPSA)—Retirement is a concept that’s constantly being reinvented. A comfortable retirement wasn’t even a widespread economic goal until after World War II—and it’s changing again, as the economy is making that goal more difficult to reach. Fortunately, seniors do have options. According to executives at The Lifeline Program, seniors must now look well beyond traditional tools if they want some sort of retirement. For most seniors, the notion of ending their work life at age 65 with a golf course membership and a gold watch is no longer the norm. Recent studies show that most seniors are working longer with little hope of an idyllic retirement. Traditional sources of retirement income can no longer be relied on. Pensions have become rare and many seniors have not saved enough. The recession and housing crash have hurt retirement accounts and housing values. Financial-planning experts suggest saving more, but that’s not always possible. Other options do exist, though, and it’s important to do your research. For example, performing a reverse mortgage on a home, selling a life

insurance policy through a life settlement and exploring alternative investments are all tactics that can add financial security and help seniors realize some of their dreams for retirement. For Joan Clary (age 70), a substitute schoolteacher from Oakhurst, Calif., the dream was to meet actress Betty White. Fortunately, Clary won the recent Lifeline “Meet Betty White” Facebook contest and was flown to Los Angeles to meet the actress. Clary was thrilled to win. “As I turn 70, I realize Betty is one of my last role models. It’s a joy to meet her after admiring her for so many years,” said Clary. Founded in 1989, The Lifeline Program offers life settlements as a new financial planning option to baby boomers and retirees. The company partners with insurance agents, broker dealers and financial planners to establish life settlement business lines.

4-H: Preparing Today’s Youth To Become Engineers Of Tomorrow (NAPSA)—4-H set a new record in 2012, celebrating the fourth year of its robotics program with 21 teams competing in the national FIRST Championship. The event culminates after six weeks of building, engineering and designing robots to play in games created by FIRST. The event brings together teamwork, sports and technology for thousands of high school youth. With support from jcpenney and Lockheed Martin, 4-H has established 87 FIRST Robotics teams over four years in cities such as Atlanta, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City and West Palm Beach. From urban to suburban, 4-H youth in FIRST Robotics come from incredibly diverse backgrounds to join a shared passion for engineering. That passion earned Scott Brenneman and the 4-H TechnoClovers of Accident, Md., second place overall. “I love this because there are so many things that can be done and discovered with robots,” Brenneman said. Nationwide, nearly 5 million 4-H youth each year participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning experiences like robotics through afterschool programming, in-school enrichment programs and camps. With the launch of the 4-H Robotics Curriculum, those youth have the opportunity to begin exploring STEM year-round. “We are proud of our 4-H youth who stepped up to robotics, and devoted their time and talents in the name of engineering,” said Donald T. Floyd Jr., National 4-H Council president and CEO. “Their success is a testament to 4-H’s efforts to address the nation’s scientific workforce development

There are nearly 100 4-H teams across the country now involved in competitive robotics. challenges by expanding our STEM programming, sparking an early interest in the sciences and providing an environment where young people can discover the possibilities of pursuing degrees and careers in science.” The early introduction to STEM among 4-H’ers is key, according to a study by Tufts University. Through activities like robotics, youth in 4-H have better grades and higher levels of academic competence; are two times more likely to excel in STEM; and are more interested in pursuing science careers. “In order for our country to succeed tomorrow, we have to make critical investments in the technological education of our youth today,” Floyd said. “From food insecurity to environmental issues, many of the solutions to society’s problems will be solved with STEM. At 4-H, we want to be sure we are doing what we can to train those who will find the solutions to those problems.”

Colic: Why It’s No Crying Matter (NAPSA)—While colic can be unbearable for the entire household, there are ways you can treat your baby’s discomfort. Usually presenting itself within the first month of life, colic is characterized by excessive and prolonged bouts of screaming and crying, often lasting until 4 to 6 months of age. The condition affects as many as one in five infants and poses a unique dilemma for parents and doctors.There’s no universally recognized cause for the Dr. Sears condition, so the challenge in treating colic lies in identifying the source of the problem. It is widely accepted that colic is a digestive problem in which something is irritating the intestinal system but the exact cause of the intestinal problems can vary. Two common causes are cow’s milk protein intolerance and a recently recognized condition called transient lactase deficiency (TLD), which is an intolerance to milk sugar. A cow’s milk protein allergy can easily be diagnosed by removing all dairy from a baby’s diet, or from the mother ’s diet if she is breast-feeding. If this does not put the colic symptoms at bay, a likely cause is TLD. Transient lactase deficiency occurs in babies who are born with insufficient levels of the digestive enzyme lactase in their intestines. This enzyme is needed to digest the milk sugar, or lactose, in breast milk or formula. The undigested lactose sugars create gas, bloating and irritation in

the intestines, leading to colicky symptoms. The symptoms caused by TLD are analogous to those presented in older children and adults with lactose intolerance; their lack of lactase enzyme leads to gas, pain and bloating when they drink milk. Fortunately, TLD is a temporary condition that resolves itself when the baby starts producing lactase in sufficient amounts. Before that, TLD can be treated by adding lactase enzyme drops, such as Colief, to breast milk or formula at every feeding. This reduces the lactose load in milk, making it easier for babies to digest. Lactase enzyme drops are completely natural, and can help facilitate continued breast-feeding or prevent the switch to an expensive, hypoallergenic formula. What’s more, with lactase enzymes, babies aren’t deprived of the natural and healthy milk sugar that contributes to brain development. Because colic is such an intricate and mystifying condition, nationally recognized pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears has engaged in an educational campaign aiming to spread awareness of the various causes and available treatments. Parents can get information and advice through Facebook (www.Facebook.com/ColiefInfant Drops), Twitter (www.Twitter.com/ Colief) or by tweeting with the hashtag #TummyTuesday. Additional information on colic and transient lactase deficiency is at www.RelieveColic.com. Newly available to the U.S., Colief can be found at select drugstores and retailers, including Walmart and Walgreens.



Note to Editors: Colief is proud to partner with Dr. Bob Sears as part of a national effort to educate parents about colic. Dr. Sears is spokesperson for Crosscare Ltd., the manufacturer of Colief. The opinions expressed are his own.

Smartphone Safety: What You Need To Know (NAPSA)—Smartphones make life so much more convenient, but if they are lost or stolen, your personal information may be exposed. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to protect your information. Here are a few tips from CTIA—the international wireless telecommunications association: Take steps to prevent theft. Before a phone is lost or stolen, protect your information by using passcodes and applications. Passcodes—Use a passcode to make it harder for a thief to access your smartphone if it is lost or stolen. Apps—Use apps that can track or locate a lost or stolen smartphone. Some apps may also enable you to remotely wipe a device or emit a loud alarm. If your device is lost or stolen, contact your wireless provider immediately to suspend your service. CTIA and its members always want America’s wireless users to be safe. Together with the Federal Communications Commission and major city police chiefs, CTIA and participating wireless companies have agreed to take steps to help protect consumers and their private information on smartphones. Paramount to preventing smartphone thefts is educating consumers about the tools and features that carriers, device manufacturers and app creators already offer. By using these pass-

Add Some Life To Your Plate With Healthful Recipes (NAPSA)—For those people looking for a better-for-you change to their eating habits, the Mediterranean Diet, frequently touted by dietitians, includes foods that can boost overall health and even help prevent some diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Olives and olive oil, the main sources of dietary fat in the Mediterranean Diet, contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) and polyphenols, which contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Incorporating these foods into your daily diet can have a positive impact on your overall health—without sacrificing flavor. There are many small steps you can take to reap the health benefits of olives and olive oil while enjoying the flavor they bring to dishes. For instance, try replacing butter with olive oil, satisfying salt cravings with a few olives versus a bowl of chips, or choosing a side salad drizzled with an olive oil vinaigrette in lieu of French fries when dining out. One easy, delicious recipe you can make at home is Edamame Hummus. Edamame, soybeans harvested prior to hardening, are used extensively in Asian cuisine and provide the foundation for this dip. Blend the protein- and fiberpacked edamame with olive oil, fresh kale or spinach, garlic and lemon juice and pair with pita wedges or crispy vegetables. The hummus can also be used as a better-for-you spread on sandwiches and wraps—perfect for a lazy day at the beach or an afternoon picnic.

Life After Vision Loss (NAPSA)—There is new hope for people whose vision has been compromised by macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Many patients with these diseases have heard that nothing more can be done for them, but pioneering changes in recent months may offer them new options. Special types of highly sophisticated glasses prescribed by low vision physicians are quickly emerging as the answer to vision loss due to macular degeneration or other conditions that lead to limited vision. For example, member doctors in the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists (IALVS) use telescopic, microscopic and prismatic glasses to help those with vision deficiencies to perform daily activities such as reading, writing, playing cards, watching TV and even driving. New Lens Technology Recently developed E-Scoop lenses from Holland now enable doctors to help patients with one of the chief complaints associated with macular degeneration— cloudy vision. “Macular degeneration not only causes central blind spots but reduces clarity,” says Dr. Richard Shuldiner, low vision optometrist and IALVS founder. “Most of my patients ask me for clearer vision.” Glasses that use the new EScoop technology bridge the gap between standard eyeglasses and spectacle head-borne telescopes.

New lens technology helps correct a basic problem experienced by those with macular degeneration. Whether your difficulty is night driving, bright light, sunlight or simply seeing clearly into the distance, the E-Scoop lens placed over a standard eyeglass prescription can help. The lens has four distinct properties that make vision clearer and sharper, with reduced glare: •The yellow tint improves contrast. •The prism moves the image away from the damaged macular area. •The thickness of the lens, combined with its special “base” curve, makes objects appear slightly larger. •The anti-reflection coating allows more light through the lens.

Teething Tips (NAPSA)—For many babies, teething can be a painful experience. Finding safe and effective ways to ease a baby’s discomfort can challenge new parents, but there are many natural solutions that can help. Teething usually begins when a baby’s primary teeth come through the gums, somewhere between the ages of 3 to 12 months old. By age three, most children have all 20 of their first teeth. Lauren Feder, M.D. is a nationally recognized physician and author who specializes in primary care medicine, pediatrics and homeopathy. She says, “All babies experience teething differently. Some experience a lot of discomfort, while others may show no symptoms. And while a baby might experience one episode of teething with pain, a subsequent tooth may cause little to no pain.” The tell-tale signs of teething include irritability, drooling, chin rash, biting and gnawing, diarrhea, low-grade fever, and wakefulness at night about 3 to 5 days before a tooth breaks through the gum. Because a baby cannot communicate his or her needs, parents may want to try a variety of solutions to relieve the discomfort of these symptoms, starting with the most gentle and natural. “Cold washcloths, teething rings and massage can help soothe swollen, irritated gums,” notes Dr. Feder. “Hard frozen foods and vegetables can present a choking hazard, however, so it’s best to provide safe objects to chew on.” While many parents have used over-the-counter numbing benzocaine-based gels and liquids to ease teething pain, the FDA has advised that they can lead to a rare but serious condition called methemoglobinemia.

Teething babies can get relief from safe, natural products. Symptoms of methemoglobinemia may be difficult for parents to interpret because they can be attributed to other illnesses. Concerned parents should ask their doctor before using benzocaine teething gels on a child, particularly under the age of 2. A consumer update from the FDA on this topic can be found at www.fda.gov. “Natural medicines such as homeopathic teething tablets and gels can provide effective relief from mouth and gum pain,” says Dr. Feder. “They are formulated to temporarily relieve the symptoms of simple restlessness and wakeful irritability and to help reduce redness and inflammation of gums,” she adds. Hyland’s all-natural Baby Teething Tablets melt instantly upon contact and have been trusted by parents for over 85 years to ease teething discomfort without numbing a baby’s gums. (These statements are based upon traditional homeopathic practice. They have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration.)

Hyland’s products are available nationally in natural food stores, groceries, supercenters and pharmacies such as Walgreens.

Ten Tips To Cut Home Energy Bills (NAPSA)—The secret to reducing your monthly energy bills is following the latest tips to cut down on your household’s everyday consumption, according to the Department of Energy. 1. Use the latest lightbulbs. Lighting-related costs add up to about 10 percent of your electric bill. Reduce your lighting usage by up to 75 percent by using the latest lighting technologies, including compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or light-emitting diode (LED) lightbulbs. 2. Keep the wattage low. Make sure that your lightbulbs aren’t a higher wattage than the listed wattage for sockets. 3. Hit the pool. Use 75 percent less wattage than incandescent pool lights with white Pentair IntelliBrite LEDs, and save up to $1,500 a year by switching from a single-speed pump to an IntelliFlo variable-speed pump, part of the Eco Select family (www.pentair pool.com/calculators). 4. Install ceiling fans. You’ll be able to raise the thermostat for your air conditioner about 4 degrees without compromising relief from the heat. 5. Find and plug all air leaks. Save 5 to 30 percent on energy costs by caulking or weather stripping gaps where air flows: window frames, doors, baseboards, electrical outlets, mounted air conditioners, attic doors, fireplace dampers, pipes, wires, mail slots. If you can rattle or see daylight around a door or window, it’s likely leaking air. 6. Turn the water heater down. The energy used to heat your water accounts for up to 25 percent of your energy usage.

Homeowners cut energy costs up to 90 percent with Eco Select equipment in their pools, the second-largest consumer of home energy after HVAC, according to Pentair Aquatic Systems. Turn down the temperature on your water heater to 120 degrees. 7. Set up a programmable thermostat. Cooling and heating systems account for about 56 percent of your energy use. Set your thermostat for the morning, day, evening, overnight and vacation to control costs. 8. Replace your old cooling and heating equipment. Installing a high-efficiency air conditioner can help reduce related energy costs 20 to 50 percent. And if your forced-air furnace is more than 15 years old, consider replacing it. 9. Remember your filters. Change the filters on your forcedair furnace and air-conditioning unit about every month or two and have professionals check them annually. 10. Explore your insulation. Seal any gaps around attic openings for pipes, ductwork and chimneys with expanding foam caulk or other permanent sealant. And make sure there’s a vapor barrier such as a plastic sheet or specialized paint beneath insulation, including the attic door.

Tips For Avoiding Social Networking Disasters (NAPSA)—Small businesses need effective, low-cost marketing strategies, and tools like Facebook and Twitter deliver megahits for microbudgets. Yet while many business owners are being advised to engage customers via social media, not all are informed of the risks. Social network sites are fertile waters for Internet pirates who troll for unsuspecting victims, hoping to steal data by planting malware in the form of computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses and spyware. If you are a small-business owner, work for one or hope to become one, these tips can help keep your business data secure: •Share carefully. Clearly identify what kind of business information should be on social networks. Don’t post confidential information, such as financial information, passwords or anything else you would not want shared. •Guide employees. Develop a social media policy on the potential risks and ways to participate safely. Include personal and professional best practices, and teach your people how to avoid scams. Remind employees to limit personal comments to their own personal pages. •Beware new twists. Thirty percent of all viruses that infect computers originate from spam, targeting users with seemingly legitimate posts, such as “I just checked how many people have viewed my profile.” Cyber thieves target easy victims first: individuals and organizations that h a v e n ’t a d e q u a t e l y p r o t e c t e d their computers, networks, mobile devices, Wi-Fi and Internet connections. Another technique is “likejacking” or “clickjacking”: When users click on a link, the site steals their Facebook account and spreads the spam to all their contacts.

Small businesses that take the time to understand the dangers will find that social media can be a customer magnet, building brand exposure and creating engagement with potential customers. •Don’t automatically click on URL links. If an offer in a social post sounds too good to be true—“Click here to win an iPad”—it probably is. •Protect your passwords and privacy. Using the same password on every site can easily expose your business to account takeover. If that password is hacked or leaked, hackers can access your other site information. Instead, use different, strong alphanumeric (both letters and numbers) passwords for each of your social media accounts and keep them regularly updated. •Stay current with cybersecurity. Keeping your computer security updated is the smartest way to elevate your defenses against cybercrime. Deluxe Security Solutions is a good security resource for current protection products and services such as McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2012, which defends against online viruses, malware and spyware. Through Deluxe, you can subscribe to a fraud and identity protection service such as EZShield Business Identity Restoration.

Josh Duhamel Gives A “High-Five” For Adopted Pets (NAPSA)—Approximately half of the pets that end up in shelters in North America are euthanized before they find a home. That adds up to about 11,000 pets each day—or about 4 million pets this year—that will lose their lives even though the majority are healthy and adoptable. While these figures might seem staggering, ending pet homelessness is an achievable goal. Everyone can be part of the solution and it starts with adopting your next pet. Many Americans believe adopted pets are some of the best companion animals, yet there are many misconceptions about adoption that need to be overcome. PetSmart Charities has teamed up with leading actor Josh Duhamel to launch the High-Five for Pet Adoption campaign in an effort to educate the public about these misconceptions. Duhamel has been a pet adoption advocate since he adopted Meatloaf, a companion for Zoe, his 7-year-old dachshund. Though he’s passed away, Meatloaf left an indelible mark on Duhamel—that adopted pets are so grateful for the love you have to give them— and he’s committed to raising awareness about the joy that adopted pets bring to our lives. With Duhamel, the High-Five for Pet Adoption campaign celebrates the 5 million pets that have been saved through PetSmart Charities adoption centers in PetSmart stores, while raising awareness about adoption in an effort to save millions more pets. Duhamel urges others to take action by: •Donating to organizations that rely on public support to run shelters and programs that save pets. Text PETS to 80888 through August 6 or visit www.petsmart charities.org to donate $5 and help PetSmart Charities reach its goal of raising $250,000 to help save 10,000 homeless pets.

Josh Duhamel plays with Lucky, an adopted dog. Josh is working in par tnership with PetSmar t Charities to raise awareness of pet adoption. •Adopting a pet when you’re ready to add a four-legged companion to your family. •Sharing your story with others about how your adopted pet has brought joy to your life. One of the biggest barriers to adoption is the belief that “you never know what breed you’re going to get,” yet in the U.S., an average of 20 percent of all adoptable pets are purebred. No matter what type of pet you choose to adopt, consider these four things: 1. Space. Some breeds spend lots of time sleeping, while others need more room to run and explore. 2. Time. The need for training, attention, play and outings can vary depending on breed type. 3. Kids. If you have children, know the pet’s temperament before you adopt. Most shelters will offer a pet’s history, including temperament, when it’s available. 4. Coat. Some breeds must be professionally groomed to stay healthy and almost all dogs and cats, whether long- or shorthaired, shed. How much hair are you ready to handle? More tips, adoption stories and access to a list of local adoption agencies is available on www.pet smartcharities.org.
