o you thought the government “shutdown” didn’t effect Americans too harshly. Well as one after another “shutdown” problems surface we also find out that charitable donations are taking a hit. In 2012 the 400 U.S. charities that raise the greatest amounts had collections soar upward by four percent. In 2013 that figure is now projected to head south by three percentage points. This despite a sharp rise in giving by the wealthy who have more than doubled Gifts of $1 million or more,WHY-one major reason according to Stacy Palmer, editor of the Chronicle of Philanthropy, is the fearsome “effect of the government, and its debt ceiling controversies in Washington. “Things like the Federal shutdown, and all of the wrangling in Washington are not helping “Palmer opines.” These kind of things do not help people feel charitable or even feel like giving as much as in the past”. Other factors include the growing significance of the “donor-advised funds” which allow rich givers to “park” money and yet receive an immediate tax benefit though the funds may really not be given to a particular charity for weeks or months later. P.S The largest upward jump in 2012 gift giving was at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Its capitol campaign raised $181 million, a 410 per cent increase over 2011.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Interstate Moves: Avoiding “Potholes” Along The Way (NAPSA)—Moving across town or to a different city in-state is complicated enough, but when your move crosses state lines, it’s a whole new ball game. Here are a few things to consider. Regulation and Protection Interstate moves are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The agency protects consumers from fraud by ensuring that moving companies meet licensing and registration requirements, comply with rules on estimates and the release of goods, and educate consumers on their rights and responsibilities. Be sure to check insurance, and be certain you understand how much liability coverage you’re agreeing to. Basic coverage is 60 cents a pound, so you’d get only $6 for a 10-pound microwave. You should be aware that part of your interstate move may be subcontracted to another company. This means the company that loads your goods may not be the same company that unloads them at your destination. Ship Smart Most local moves are charged on an hourly basis, but interstate moves are charged either by the weight of the shipment or the cubic volume of goods being transported. Adding a few extra boxes can translate into big added costs. If you have a piece of furniture you plan to replace, or one that’s bulky but inexpensive, it may be wise to toss or donate it. Also, remember, your goods will likely be in storage for a certain amount of time. No food should be part of that shipment, including canned food, unopened packaged goods, pet food, and spices. It’ll only attract vermin.

Don’t make a move, especially to another state, until you’ve planned it all out properly. Services and Registrations Transferring, registering and setting up many other critical services prior to your move helps tremendously. Quite often, vehicle registration, change of address with the U.S. Postal Service, voter registration, utilities and cable can be taken care of before you move. Every state has different rules about how long you can wait to update your driver’s license and vehicle registration. Some states also require a new state inspection and title changes. For one-stop shopping, you can go to the Change of Address section on Cable Mover at http:// cablemover.com. There, you can disconnect and set up new cable services, change your mailing address and link to the DMV for registration requirements and forms. Similarly, you can update your voter registration. Timing is key. Some states have deadlines that are well before elections. The U.S. Election Assistance Commission can help.

Put The Cloud To Work For Your Business (NAPSA)—Small business owners across the country are increasingly taking advantage of “cloud computing”—technology that allows them to store files securely and access them remotely. With no hardware to install or maintain, cloud computing is an easy and efficient way to back up and safeguard computers, external hard drives and network attached storage (NAS) devices. However, many small business owners are missing out on the benefits of the cloud, and may also be sacrificing the profits that can come with this upgrade. OfficeMax recently launched OfficeMax Services Centers in all of its stores nationwide to offer specially-tailored services and solutions to small business owners, including online backup from Carbonite and cloud storage from MiMedia. Here are some tips from the OfficeMax Services Center on how to effectively put cloud storage to work for your business. Protect your business with bank-level security The cloud provides a safeguarded central location to encrypt and store the most sensitive, confidential materials on enterprisegrade servers, including employee payroll information. In addition to cloud protection, OfficeMax works with Merchant Payroll powered by ADP and Paychex to absorb payroll needs and even file all state and federal taxes. Reduce hardware, paperwork and management costs Cloud storage offsets the cost of purchasing hard drives or memory upgrades—and who doesn’t like saving money? Plans are based on storage space needs and can be customized at any time. Benefits include less equipment to maintain and reduced management costs. Boost productivity with anytime, anywhere access In today’s competitive marketplace, staying connected means s t a y i n g i n b u s i n e s s . I t ’s m o r e important than ever to maximize productivity on the go, wherever you may be. Cloud storage allows the business and its employees to gain access to critical business information across multiple

Cloud computing can help your business save time, trouble and money. devices, including laptops, smartphones and tablets. Get a meeting room Many small business owners know the feeling of scrambling to find a coffee shop with enough space to hold a quick meeting. OfficeMax now works with Regus to provide business customers with access to flexible office space, virtual office services, private meeting rooms by the hour and mobile business lounges to drop into to ensure your needs are covered. Put real-time collaboration to work Cloud storage allows businesses to create shared workspaces for staff. By enabling multiple people to share files from multiple locations, employees can then access, review and work on the same files in real time. Rest assured with data backup and disaster recovery If your computer crashes or is stolen, or if the office experiences a fire or burglary, how would your business get back critical data? Cloud storage allows you to easily save, back up, recover and restore all files remotely. An OfficeMax Services Center advisor can provide a tutorial on touch screen technology to help you back up these files while working on a mobile platform.

Talking Turkey—With A Southern Accent (NAPSA)—An increasing number of Americans are finding that a holiday tradition long popular in the South gets a warm welcome from family and friends everywhere: a succulent turkey, deepfried in 100 percent peanut oil— the second most popular way to cook the bird. To stick to the Southern flavor, try using the same oil to turn out hush puppies, fried okra, sweet potato fries, and veggie chips, since the flavors won’t transfer with the oil. Peanut oil can safely be reused three or four times before it needs to be replaced. Just let the oil cool completely after use, strain it, and store in a cool place. Peanut oil has a high smoke point and slightly nutty flavor and the whole process takes about half the time it does to roast a turkey in the oven. The oil is also trans fat–free, cholesterol-free, low in saturated fats, and high in unsaturated fats, to benefit heart health. The American Heart Association considers peanuts a heart-healthy food and research suggests that peanut oil can even improve cholesterol levels and prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Here’s a recipe to try: Crispy and Juicy Deep-Fried Turkey 1 1 1 1 2

whole turkey tablespoon of salt teaspoon of black pepper teaspoon of garlic powder tablespoons of your favorite dry rub 3 to 4 gallons of 100% peanut oil (just enough to cover the turkey)

For a delicious, tender and juicy bird with crispy skin, deep-fry your turkey in peanut oil. Directions: 1. Wash bird inside and out and allow it to drain. 2. Rub turkey with the salt, pepper, garlic and dry rub. 3. Allow turkey to sit at room temperature for 1 hour or until completely thawed and dry. 4. Preheat peanut oil in an outdoor or countertop turkey fryer to 350˚ F. 5. Make sure there is no moisture on the skin and carefully lower turkey into hot oil either in a fryer basket or using a sturdy tool inserted into the chest cavity. Submerge the turkey completely. 6. Fry turkey for 3 minutes per pound plus 5 minutes per bird. Internal temperature should reach 165˚ F. 7. Remove turkey from the oil and let sit 20 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.

Sounds Like Team Spirit

Home improvement expert Danny Lipford and his University of Alabama–supporting doorbell. (NAPSA)—A fun new way to show support for your school can literally be at your fingertips. That’s because you can easily install a doorbell that plays your alma mater’s fight song, explains nationally syndicated radio and television host, contractor, and home improvement expert Danny Lipford. It is a great way to greet classmates and others at reunion time, when the big game is on or at graduation. It’s also a nice note for welcoming your college-age child home for the holidays. What It Is Made of cast metal, the doorbell push buttons are available in highquality satin nickel or antique brass decorative artisan finishes to match popular door hardware types and are adorned with an official school logo of your choice. Available schools range from the University of Florida to the University of Washington; Texas A&M University to the University of Connecticut; and the U.S. Military Academy to Purdue University, plus more than 30 others.

How It Works It’s the only collegiate-licensed doorbell collection with MP3 customization and 128 MBs of memory, and can store up to 40 songs or sounds, offering a variety of notification options for any occasion. You can easily upload MP3 files of your school’s fight song or alma mater, a seasonal song or holiday sound—any of your favorite MP3 music files will work. You can also select from one of eight preloaded tunes, such as the traditional Westminster chime. Easy To Install Each NuTone College Pride doorbell comes with both wired and wireless installation capabilities and can be installed within 15 minutes in retrofit or new construction applications, adds L i p f o r d . T h e m a n u f a c t u r e r, NuTone, is an ENERGY STAR partner. Learn More For further information, visit www.NuToneCollegePride.com and www.NuTone.com or call (800) 558-1711.

Try Delicious Duck Bacon For Breakfast (NAPSA)—For a breakfast, brunch or light lunch with a twist, try a decadent French toast stuffed with Brie cheese and duck bacon. Easy to make and elegant to serve, this dish is baked in a hot oven, making it handy for feeding a crowd. Duck Bacon and Brie Cheese– Stuffed French Toast recipe by Celebrity Chef Ben Vaughn Total Time: 30 minutes Serves 4 8 slices day-old bread (sourdough) 4 large eggs, lightly beaten dash salt 2 tablespoons sugar 1 ⁄2 cup milk 1 ⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 ounce of bourbon 8 ounces domestic Brie cheese 12 slices Maple Leaf Farms Duck Bacon, cooked crispy 8 tablespoons melted butter for topping Maple syrup and powdered sugar for topping Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with salt, sugar, milk, vanilla and bourbon. Pour into flat-bottomed dish large enough to accommodate a few slices of the bread. Submerge bread slices in the dish to soak up some of the egg mixture. Turn with a spatula and let them soak on the other side, but not too long or they will be too saturated and difficult to handle. Gently remove four soaked bread slices and transfer to a well-buttered baking sheet. Place 2 ounces of cheese on each slice. Add three slices of

Press the filled bread together firmly. Place the sheet pan with the French toast in the preheated oven; bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning after the first 8–10 minutes to brown on both sides. Serve immediately with melted butter, maple syrup and powdered sugar. Why Duck Bacon? Aside from the great taste, duck bacon from Maple Leaf Farms has 57 percent less fat and 26 percent less sodium than pork bacon. It also doesn’t compromise on taste or texture like other poultry bacon. “It’s a lean and tasty alternative to the standard, overused pork belly bacon,” says celebrity chef Ben Vaughn. The naturally applewoodsmoked duck bacon is excellent with eggs, sandwiches, in salads and even in brittle for a sweet and savory snack.

Getting Outdoor Equipment Ready For Winter (NAPSA)—When it comes to prepping outdoor equipment for winter storage, even an optimist knows that a gas tank that’s half full is bad news. That’s because today’s gasoline is made with a percentage of ethanol, which can increase the chances of moisture buildup, corrosion and even phase separation in your engine. That can lead to expensive repairs. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to avoid these and other problems when it’s time to start your engines once again. Don’t Drain The Tank According to small engine expert Tom Bingham, when you leave the fuel level low, it allows water vapor to condense on the walls of your fuel tank. It then runs down the walls and collects in the fuel. This is what causes phase separation. When you start your engine in the spring, this water may run through your fuel system and can cause engine damage or even complete engine failure. Water in a fuel tank also encourages corrosion. Particularly in today’s ethanol-blended fuels, when water and ethanol mix, it can become acidic and very corrosive. Part of the problem is that when you think your engine is dry, there is still gas in your fuel system in small amounts. These tiny fuel droplets are surrounded by oxygen that can attack unprotected fuel and cause gum and varnish buildup. Even the smallest amounts of either gum or varnish can cause a lot of damage inside a fuel system. For example, gum can settle on a

When storing lawn equipment for the winter, it’s a good idea to keep the fuel tank full. This can help to avoid a number of engine problems in the spring. seal surface, causing a leak or preventing fuel from flowing into the engine. A dry fuel system can also damage seals and gaskets. They’re designed to be continuously soaked in fuel and play an important role in keeping fuel flowing to the right places in your engine and out of the wrong places. When they are exposed to air for long periods, they can dry out and crack. That can cause leaks and lead to costly repairs. A Full Tank And Stable Fuel That’s why it’s important to stabilize your fuel and practice proper fuel management techniques with any equipment with a gasoline engine. It turns out that filling your gas tank 95 percent full of fresh fuel and adding the proper dosage of a fuel additive, such as STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer, can do a lot to protect a fuel system and engine by preventing fresh fuel from degrading, leaving deposits and corroding the system.

New Design For Helping Kids Beat Cancer And Blood Disorders (NAPSA)—While for most young people the teen years are challenging enough, for some, there are further complications—and one such young woman turned those into a way to help others. The Problem Here’s her story: Michelle Nguyen from Johns Creek, Georgia has a rare blood disorder called thalassemia. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with thalassemia have a genetic defect of their red blood cells that affects the cells’ ability to produce normal hemoglobin. Red blood cells use hemoglobin to carry oxygen to tissues. As a result of the defect, most forms of thalassemia produce a chronic, lifelong anemia. Nguyen’s had it since she can remember and needs routine blood transfusions to maintain her strength. Every three weeks or so, she and her mother are off to the Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorders Center in Atlanta to go through a process that should never be “routine” for a 14-year-old, but like most child patients, she takes it in stride. What Nguyen really needs is a bone marrow transplant, but in order to have that procedure, she needs to find a match, which is no easy task, especially for someone of Asian descent. In spite of the efforts of such celebrities as Robin Roberts of “Good Morning America,” who have championed the cause, Asians and African-Americans are not well represented on the national bone marrow registry. There are 10.5 million potential donors on the list and only about 7 percent are Asian and another 7 percent are African-American.

Michelle Nguyen and the adorable holiday duck she designed to help raise money for childhood cancer facilities. Sixty-seven percent of potential donors on the list are white. The Duck Recently, while at the cancer center for her treatments, Nguyen entered a contest to design the annual Aflac Holiday Duck for the 2013 season. Every year, the insurance company produces a plush duck and sells it online at www.Aflacholidayduck.com and at participating Macy’s stores. All the net proceeds go to the nearest participating childhood cancer facility to where it was purchased. So far, the program has raised more than $3 million of the $83 million that Aflac has come up with for childhood cancer.

Nguyen was thrilled to know that her design won the contest and so will help other kids who are going through the same types of trials that she goes through. She wants to use her newfound stardom to amplify the need for marrow donors, the need for improved childhood cancer treatments and additional research. How To Get It Nguyen’s Holiday Duck comes in both a 6- and 10-inch version and will be available through November and December.

Teens And Parents Are Agreeing To Drive Safely (NAPSA)—Increasingly, when it comes to safe driving, teens and parents know that safety is no accident. That’s why a growing number of them are stepping up to sign an agreement that promotes better driving behaviors. Unfortunately, numerous studies show that safe driving and teens don’t always go together. First-year drivers in particular pose a risk to themselves and to others. drivers age 16 have double the crash rate that 17- to 19-year-olds do. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. They claim the lives of seven teens daily, on average. Teens are three times more likely than older drivers to be involved in fatal wrecks. When it comes to the reasons behind these and other accidents involving teen drivers, distracted driving is a leading cause. Research by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia found that just three types of errors led to nearly 50 percent of all serious teen crashes: distracted driving, failing to see a hazard, and speeding. With the growing awareness of the problem of texting while driving, the issue of distracted driving for both parents and teens is taking on even more significance. A Safe driving Agreement To address this problem, several safety groups are promoting programs where parents and children sign an agreement to avoid at-risk behaviors that can lead to accident and injury. One of those groups is the Accident Attorneys Organization. Its parent-teen driving agreement includes penalties for violating the agreement that teens and parents agree to, such as loss of driving privileges for two weeks.

With the growing awareness of the problem of texting while driving, the issue of distracted driving is taking on even more significance for both parents and teens. The agreement consists of a series of promises that teen drivers agree to follow, such as always wearing a seat belt, never texting, driving with both hands on the wheel and not having passengers. The fact that this is a joint agreement signed by both children and parents is key to its effectiveness because it attempts to reflect what really goes on behind the wheel. Psychologists agree that clearly outlining the negative consequences of breaking an important rule increases the chances it will be followed. You can download a copy of the agreement at www.accidentattor neys.org.

Medical Community Takes Fresh Look At Hormone Therapy For Menopause Symptoms (NAPSA)—It’s a fact: up to 85 percent of menopausal women suffer from hot flashes. 1 While hot flashes and other symptoms are a common rite of passage in menopause, opinions on treatment with hormone therapy (HT) have been anything but universal—but that is changing. Recently, 15 top medical organizations issued a statement of agreement that HT for the treatment of menopause symptoms is acceptable and relatively safe for healthy, symptomatic, recently postmenopausal women.2 The statement was prepared by The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and The Endocrine Society and jointly endorsed by 12 o t h e r l e a d i n g w o m e n ’s h e a l t h organizations. According to its authors, the purpose of the statement was to provide reassurance in the decade-long debate about HT, which began with the publication of the controversial Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) in 2002. “ We b e l i e v e t h a t t o o m a n y symptomatic women are missing out on the proven benefits of hormone therapy because the results of the WHI, which studied the long-term use of hormones to prevent chronic disease, were misinterpreted for women with menopausal symptoms,” Dr. Margery

Women bothered by moderate to severe menopausal symptoms should speak with their doctors about treatment. Gass, executive director for NAMS, said in a press release about the joint statement. “Women and clinicians are frustrated by the many conflicting recommendations. That’s why we initiated this effort to bring these notable medical organizations together in agreement regarding the use of hormone therapy.” Health experts encourage women who are bothered by moderate to severe menopausal symptoms to speak with their doctors about the possibility of treatment with HT. “Physicians can help patients determine, based on their own particular characteristics and history, whether or not they are good candidates for hormone therapy and what type of HT will pro-

vide them the greatest relief at the lowest risk,” Roger Lobo, MD, Past President of the ASRM said in the press release. If a woman thinks hormone therapy might be right for her, she should ask her doctor about prescription estrogens which continue to be the most effective option for relieving the discomfort of hot flashes and night sweats associated with menopause.3 The FDA recommends the lowest effective dose with any estrogen therapy for the shortest amount of time to achieve personal treatment goals.4 A physician may prescribe Divigel® (estradiol gel) 0.1%, a bioidentical,5 transdermal estrogen gel with the lowest FDA-approved dose of transdermal estradiol gel or spray (0.25 mg/day estradiol) for hot flashes.6-9 Divigel® is used to treat moderate to severe hot flashes due to menopause. Generally, women should be started at 0.25 mg/day of Divigel®. For patients who are prescribed Divigel®, saving money is easy and just a few clicks away at divigel.com. Patients can print the Patient Savings Coupon, bring it to their local pharmacy, and pay no more than $25 on their Divigel® co-pay amount.

Straight Talk On Scoliosis (NAPSA)—Recent research may bring good news to the one in every 1,000 children diagnosed with scoliosis and their families. Scoliosis is a musculoskeletal disorder that causes the back to have an abnormal curve. Symptoms According to Anthony Sin, M.D., board-certified neurosurgeon and spine specialist at Shriners Hospitals for Children–Shreveport, parents should watch for “a visible curve in the spine, uneven hips, a protruding shoulder blade or shoulders that are not even.” You may notice your child’s clothes are not fitting correctly or that hems are not hanging evenly. In some cases, your child’s spine may appear crooked or his or her ribs may protrude. Treatments Some children with mild spinal curves may require no treatment. For those who do need treatment, your primary pediatrician may refer you to an orthopaedic spine specialist for the best plan based on your child’s age and the degree and pattern of the curve and the type of scoliosis. Common treatments include: •Observation—If the curve measures less than 25 degrees, typically, no treatment is needed other than doctors examining the child every four to six months. •Surgery—often with implants. •Bracing—In some cases, physicians recommend their patients to be fitted for a brace to prevent the curve from worsening. A study supported by Shriners Hospitals for Children and others, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, indicates that this can be quite effective. The Bracing in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Trial compared the risk of curve progression in ado-

In the study, 72 percent who received bracing were successful.* Those who wore their brace an average of 13 hours a day had a success rate of 90 to 93 percent. “Knowing—with confidence— that bracing is effective changes the treatment paradigm,” said Matthew Dobbs, M.D., orthopaedic surgeon at Shriners Hospitals for Children–St. Louis and lead investigator for the Shriners Hospitals portion of the study. “We can now say, for a specific patient population, that we can avoid the need for surgery through bracing.” The study is just one way Shriners Hospitals for Children changes lives every day through innovative pediatric specialty care, world-class research and outstanding medical education. Its 23 facilities throughout North America provide advanced care for children with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.

Tips For Increasing Your Financial Security (NAPSA)—If you’re not sure how you are going to reach your financial goals, t:::{here’s helpful news. Here are four tips to navigate the changing economic conditions and keep your finances under control. 1. Lower your tax burden by saving as much as you can in your 401(k). No matter what your tax rate is, saving for retirement in a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan can help reduce your taxes and boost retirement security. Contributions to a traditional 401(k) aren’t subject to income tax withholding and aren’t included in your taxable wages. While you pay taxes on contributions to a Roth 401(k), your earnings are tax-free. To see if you’re doing all you can to reduce your tax burden while saving for retirement, you can use the online 401(k) “Save the Max” calculator from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), a securities regulator. 2. Start a rainy-day fund. Building a rainy-day fund is one of the most important things you can do to maintain financial security. The savings will give you a cushion to handle a short-term job loss, a surprise car repair or some other emergency. Begin by saving at least one month of your current salary in a federally insured savings account. If you can, save up to three months of your salary. If saving is hard for you, then start small. If you start saving $10 a week right now, by this time next year, you’d have a rainy-day fund of over $500. 3. Avoid credit card debt. In difficult economic times, it can be easy to rack up debt. Make it a goal to use credit sparingly, and try to pay all your credit bills in full and on time. If you can’t pay

Do a yearly background check on your investment professional. Investing a few minutes to take this free and easy step could save you money and trouble down the road. You can use FINRA’s online tool, BrokerCheck, to research the background of investment professionals and firms. Make it a habit to do a yearly check to see if there’s any new information you should know about.

Is Your Car Ready For Winter? (NAPSA)—Safety on the road is important all year round, but winter weather calls for extra caution behind the wheel to keep you and your passengers safe. That’s why many auto safety experts including Discount Tire, the world’s largest tire and wheel retailer, urge motorists to keep road safety top of mind this winter and switch to tires specifically designed for cold weather driving. Winter tires are designed for driving in temperatures of 45 degrees or below. If there’s any chance you’ll encounter snow, ice, slush, black ice or wet roads on a consistent basis, you should prepare your car for these conditions. Often, drivers aren’t aware that commonly used all-season tires have a rubber compound that gradually hardens when temperatures dip below 45 degrees. When this happens, braking and turning are compromised as there is decreased road traction and less grip. It’s also important to note that snow and ice often pile up in the tire grooves and tread blocks on all-season tires, which can impact your vehicle’s performance. Winter tires are made with higher-silica compounds. This allows the tire to deliver much better traction, which reduces skidding and improves braking. In fact, in temperatures below 45 degrees, winter tires can provide 25 to 50 percent more traction than all-season tires. In addition, the tread block design includes thousands of very small interlocking slits—known as sipes—to provide extra road-biting edges for improved winter traction. “Every aspect of a winter tire has been engineered to provide the best performance in winter condi-

The right tires in good condition can help keep rough weather from putting a damper on your travels. tions and temperature fluctuations while maintaining traction on any surface,” said Mark Marrufo of Discount Tire. “The winter tire advantage will maximize your safety and provide peace of mind during the winter months.” Five Tips for Winter Tire Safety 1. Replace your all-season tires with winter tires for driving in temperatures of 45 degrees or below. Make sure to replace all four tires with winter tires to avoid an unsafe traction mismatch. 2. Don’t forget the wheels when switching to winter tires. Having a set of wheels specifically for your set of winter tires will save money in the long run. 3. Check tire inflation pressure regularly and don’t forget the spare. Underinflated or overinflated tires may result in poor handling, uneven tread wear and poor fuel consumption. 4. Rotate your tires at least every 6,000 miles or earlier if irregular or uneven wear develops. 5. Make sure the tire shop that gets your tires ready for cold temperatures torques the lug nuts to the proper specifications for your vehicle.

It’s “Time To Talk” About Stroke Having the Conversation Now Could Make A Difference Later (NAPSA)—A stroke can happen to anyone at any time, regardless of race, sex or age. It is a leading cause of death and serious longterm disability that affects nearly 800,000 people in the U.S. each year. Immediate medical attention may limit the effects of stroke, but most people are unaware of the signs and symptoms and what to do if they think someone is having one. That’s why the National Stroke Association is working with Genentech to launch “Time To Talk,” a national stroke awareness campaign to encourage people to take action by talking with family and friends about the signs and symptoms of stroke and what to do if a stroke occurs. Bob Steele of Marietta, Georgia learned the importance of being able to recognize a stroke after suffering one himself five years ago. Fortunately, Bob was able to alert his daughter when he realized he was experiencing symptoms of stroke. “I was outside mowing my lawn when all of a sudden I felt dizzy and fell to the ground,” Bob recalls. “I was lying there, watching my life flash before my eyes, when my daughter thankfully came outside. I knew to tell her I was experiencing a stroke and to call 9-1-1.” A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries blood and oxygen to the brain is blocked by plaque or a blood clot (acute ischemic stroke) or breaks (hemorrhagic stroke). The visible signs and symptoms of stroke include speech impairment, arm numbness and weakness, severe headache, sudden confusion, trouble seeing out of one or both eyes, as well as uncontrollable drooping of the face. “According to one estimate, approximately 1.9 million brain cells may die after being deprived of oxygen, which is why it is imperative to seek immediate medical attention,” said Sarah Parker, M.D., stroke neurologist

Signs of a stroke that you should know about. at Illinois Neurological Institute in Peoria, Illinois. “There are treatments available if a patient’s symptoms are recognized quickly and they are transported to an emergency room early enough.” Bob was rushed to the hospital, and thanks to the immediate medical attention he received, Bob is here today to help spread the word about stroke awareness. “My stroke taught me that life is precious,” said Bob. “I encourage everyone to have the conversation about stroke with family and friends and learn about the signs and symptoms of stroke and what to do if a stroke occurs.” “Time To Talk” asks individuals to pay it forward by sharing vital information about stroke and the importance of acting quickly. You never know when you might need to help someone around you or yourself. Have the conversation today! In the event that you or someone you know begins to show signs and symptoms of a stroke, the F.A.S.T. test can be used as a quick screening tool.

Heart Health—Managing High Blood Pressure In Winter (NAPSA)—Fall and winter months can bring busy schedules and seasonal illnesses that make it difficult to manage high blood pressure (HBP). The good news is there are simple, practical steps you can take to manage the condition year-round and enhance your health. By managing your blood pressure, you can lower your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, peripheral artery disease and kidney disease. Here are 10 tips from the American Heart Association to assist you in maintaining a healthy blood pressure level. 1. Stay informed. It’s estimated that nearly 20 percent of those with HBP are unaware of their condition. This symptomless disease could leave you with substantial health problems. If you don’t know if you have it, see a health care professional to be tested. 2. Take your prescriptions. If you are on prescription medication for high blood pressure, take it regularly and consult your health care provider before taking any over-the-counter medications or supplements. Use a labeled pillbox to help you keep track of your medicines during the busy fall and winter months. 3. Eat a healthy diet. Aim to eat a diet that’s rich in fruits, vegetables, whole-grain and high-fiber foods, and fat-free and low-fat dairy products, and reduce sugar and sodium. If your holiday meal traditions aren’t as healthy as you’d like, modify ingredients or add a healthy new dish to the menu. 4. Get 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. Exercise not only helps control your blood pressure, it also helps you manage your weight, strengthen your heart and manage stress. When the temperature drops, find safe, indoor places to exercise. 5. Maintain a healthy weight. If you are overweight, a little weight loss can result in a lot of health gains. Even a small weight loss— 10 pounds—can help to reduce blood pressure. 6. Avoid sudden exertion. People who are outdoors in cold weather should avoid sudden exertion, like lifting a heavy shovel full of snow. Even walking through heavy, wet snow or snowdrifts can strain a person’s heart.

By managing your blood pressure, you can lower your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, peripheral artery disease and kidney disease. 7. Avoid tobacco smoke. Smoking cigarettes increases blood pressure, decreases exercise tolerance and increases the tendency for blood to clot. Make quitting a resolution for the holidays—and stick with it! 8. Stay well. Some illnesses, like influenza, pose added risks for people with heart disease. Wash your hands regularly, and make sure your doctor knows about any medicines or supplements you’re taking in order to make the best treatment decisions. Patients with heart disease should receive the flu vaccine. 9. R e a d l a b e l s o n c o l d m e d i cines. Winter colds may have you reaching for remedies at the drugstore. You should always read the labels on over-the-counter (OTC) medications, especially if you have blood pressure greater than 120/80 mmHg. People with high blood pressure should be aware that decongestants may raise blood pressure or interfere with the effectiveness of some prescribed blood pressure medications. Check the sodium content, too. Some OTC medicines contain more than 1,500 mg—a whole day’s allowance. 10. If you drink, limit alcohol. Men should limit alcohol to no more than two drinks per day and w o m e n t o o n e d r i n k p e r d a y. Drinking too much alcohol can raise your blood pressure. Your doctor may advise you to reduce the amount of alcohol you drink. Learn more online at www. heart.org/HBP.

Heart Health—Managing High Blood Pressure In Winter (NAPSA)—Fall and winter months can bring busy schedules and seasonal illnesses that make it difficult to manage high blood pressure (HBP). The good news is there are simple, practical steps you can take to manage the condition year-round and enhance your health. By managing your blood pressure, you can lower your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, peripheral artery disease and kidney disease. Here are 10 tips from the American Heart Association to assist you in maintaining a healthy blood pressure level. 1. Stay informed. It’s estimated that nearly 20 percent of those with HBP are unaware of their condition. This symptomless disease could leave you with substantial health problems. If you don’t know if you have it, see a health care professional to be tested. 2. Take your prescriptions. If you are on prescription medication for high blood pressure, take it regularly and consult your health care provider before taking any over-the-counter medications or supplements. Use a labeled pillbox to help you keep track of your medicines during the busy fall and winter months. 3. Eat a healthy diet. Aim to eat a diet that’s rich in fruits, vegetables, whole-grain and high-fiber foods, and fat-free and low-fat dairy products, and reduce sugar and sodium. If your holiday meal traditions aren’t as healthy as you’d like, modify ingredients or add a healthy new dish to the menu. 4. Get 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week.

Pairing Beef And California Avocados Creates Craveable Dishes (NAPSA)—Recently, numerous home cooks competed in the 2013 National Beef Cook-Off contest, funded by The Beef Checkoff. This year, contestants were challenged with a new recipe category—Craveable Fresh Beef and Fresh California Avocado. Contestants developed flavorful and nutritious dishes that paired delicious lean beef and creamy California avocados. Many experts say lean beef— filled with protein, iron and B vitamins—can help satisfy you and maintain a healthy weight, build muscles and fuel an active lifestyle. California avocados are also nutrient dense, in that they provide substantial amounts of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients with relatively few calories. In fact, one-fifth of a medium avocado (1 oz.) has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals and phytonutrients. Take This To Heart Research also shows that eating lean beef, even daily, as part of a heart-healthy diet and lifestyle improved cholesterol levels. A 3oz. serving of lean beef provides 25 g (about half) of the daily value for protein, which is one of the most satisfying nutrients. In a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers from Penn State University found that people who consumed lean beef daily as part of a heart-healthy diet experienced a 10 percent decline in LDL “bad” cholesterol. California avocados also fit into a heart-healthy diet, providing “good fats,” 0.5g polyunsaturated fat, 3g monounsaturated fat, and no cholesterol per 1-oz. serving. Additionally, a 1-oz. serving of avocado contains 26 milligrams of beta-sitosterol, a natural plant sterol that may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Healthy Cravings The theme of this year ’s National Beef Cook-Off contest was “Making the Most of My Plate,” which encouraged delicious, nutritious recipes using ingredients from a variety of food groups. Here are two of the delectable recipes that were created by finalists in the Craveable Fresh Beef and Fresh California Avocado recipes category.

Pairing California avocados and lean beef in this craveable salad gives your body more of the nutrients you need. Tuscan Burgers & Avocado-Tomato Spread Total preparation & cooking time: 30 minutes Makes 4 servings 1 2 2 1 1 ⁄2 1 4

Boneless Ham Is The Go-To Choice For Holiday Entertaining (NAPSA)—A boneless ham offers a world of delicious choices for holiday entertaining, whether served as the centerpiece of a festive sit-down dinner or made into a variety of tasty, easy-to-prepare appetizers excellent for more casual gatherings. Sponsored by Kentucky Legend Ham, a hotline ensures every bite turns out right, right down to the leftovers.

The hotline is open at (866) 343-5058 f r o m 9 a . m . – 7 p . m . E T, M o n day–Friday throughout the holiday season, from November 11 until December 28. “Ham is wonderful for entertaining because it is so versatile,” explains Janet Sweeney of Kentucky Legend Ham. “Most hams are fully cooked already, so they are nearly foolproof to prepare, and ham lends itself to so many creative appetizers that can be ready in minutes.” Boneless hams, she points out, are perhaps the best value because there is no waste, and cons u m e r s a r e n ’t p a y i n g f o r t h e weight of the bone. Every bite of a boneless ham can be enjoyed. To help everyone get the most from their ham, the company has created a new decision tree guide (visit www.specialtyfoodsgroup. com) to make choosing and preparing ham appetizers easier than ever. First, at-home chefs choose a preferred flavor: savory, sweet or a combination. Then they decide how much time they have to prepare the small bites: 10 minutes or less, or longer. The guide points them to recipes that meet their needs. “Our goal is to make entertaining easier for today’s busy families and to show how ham is a great choice for any eating occasion,” adds Sweeney.

Razoo For Schools Goes High Tech (NAPSA)—Fundraising for your child’s school isn’t just about car washes, candy bars and bake sales anymore. That’s the word from parents and others who say Parent Teacher Associations—commonly known a s P TA s — a n d o t h e r n o n p r o f i t organizations are learning to make better use of technology in order to raise money. For example, there’s a platform that provides charitable giving solutions based on what it calls “a new era in philanthropy.” Considered by many to be a leading example of a fundraising method known as crowdfunding, Razoo helps nonprofits leverage secure and efficient technologies to raise money and engage in charitable giving activities. Crowdfunding involves collecting small donations from many parties in order to raise the money needed for a particular project or venture. Razoo has expanded its online platform to allow people to give directly to other people for nearly any cause. Its site now empowers everyday philanthropists to show they care through generosity and peer-to-peer sharing for personal fundraisers. Options for PTAs Razoo can help transform any PTA fundraising initiative into a fun, interactive experience. It provides expert tips and resources that eliminate the massive time investment for busy parents while increasing the participation and results through crowdfunding. Across the country, PTAs are using the platform’s resources in a number of ways. For instance, some organizations are using its website to launch customized fundraising pages for special projects or events. For example, one PTA mom, Diane Kelleher, uses Razoo to help her daughter’s elementary school, Sligo Creek Elementary in Silver Spring, Md., raise money for its annual fundraiser, the Salamander Stride. She said Razoo “enables us to get more energy and

A growing number of individuals are now using the Internet and social media to show they care through generosity and peer-topeer sharing. more dynamism to reach out to a larger number of supporters.” Other schools are turning to Razoo for assistance in setting up the mechanism that would let them accept donations on their own site or on their organization’s Facebook page. Another way PTAs are using the website is as a tool to help them organize their core supporters to raise money for specific projects. A Simplified Process Using the website to set up a fundraiser only takes a few minutes. The site offers examples of different approaches and provides visitors with the tools they need to customize a page that tells their PTA’s unique story using images, words and videos provided by the PTA. The platform also shows PTAs how to use e-mail and social media—such as Facebook and Twitter—to share news of their fundraising efforts with friends, family and community. Experience has shown that keeping supporters updated and showing them the difference each donation makes can help to build support for the overall campaign. To cover its costs, Razoo charges 4.9 percent on every donation it collects. It automatically e-mails each donor a tax-deductible receipt so the nonprofit doesn’t have to. The platform also has programs for assisting individuals, corporations and other organizations. To learn more, visit www.razoo. com.

Business Success With Updated Technology (NAPSA)—Whether you work in a doctor’s office or a small business startup, it’s likely that you deal with a seemingly endless mountain of paper. This information is the lifeblood of any business and is critical to your business’s success. But how can you best use this information to move your business forward? To help, here are three ways that you can better store, manage and access your information: •Move documents to the cloud—How many times have you turned your office upside down in search of a document? You know that it’s on your desk or in a file cabinet somewhere, but you can’t seem to locate it. You’re not alone. According to International Data Corporation (IDC), the average employee will spend 2.5 hours a day searching for workrelated information. With this in mind, small- to medium-sized business owners should consider adopting cloud-enabled IT systems to digitize important information, centralize data and reduce long-term costs. •Simplify tasks with multifunction technology—Like most small businesses, it’s typical for staff to manage multiple tasks at once, which can lead to miscellaneous documents strewn around the office. In today’s world of digital information, scanning document files to the network or the cloud enables staff to clear the clutter and work more efficiently. Consider a multifunction printer

Embracing a new digitized workflow can help an office eliminate many of its paper-intensive processes. that offers scanning, faxing and printing directly to the network or cloud, such as the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M521 or HP LaserJet Pro 500 color MFP M570. Both printers are equipped with an easy-to-use color touchscreen that gives users the ability to preview, edit and digitally send documents. •Embrace the new mobile office—In today’s 24-7 work world, business owners are providing employees with the appropriate technology to help employees work whenever and wherever they need. By utilizing mobile devices, such as tablets, paired with cloud-based document management tools, employees are better equipped to meet the needs of clients without sacrificing costs, mobility or security. While paper will always have a place in the office, you can eliminate some paper-intensive processes and embrace a new, hybrid workflow that brings paper and digital together for ultimate productivity.

To make the most of your efforts, start early—the weekend after Thanksgiving is ideal.

From food to music to decor, comfort is key when entertaining during the holidays.

•Entertaining: Make entertaining easy by preparing foods in advance. Select cookware that can go from oven to table, such as the Temp-tations ® Vintage Grace Baker with Wire Rack. •C o m f o r t : Comfort is key when having guests over for the holidays. Help your guests feel at home by finding out their favorite recipe ahead of time and surprising them with the dish. • Gifts: Fill containers with the ingredients for one of Venable’s recipes. Add a personalized gift tag and you’re good to go! •Present wrapping: First, find all your favorite holiday music. Second, mix yourself a cocktail (try Venable’s classic holiday eggnog!). Third, make sure you’ve got paper, boxes, tape and scissors. It’s easiest to tackle the wrapping by doing a little here and there when you can. Venable is the author of the best-selling cookbook “QVC’s Resident Foodie Presents: Comfort Foods That Take You Home.” Each week, he gives millions of viewers an inside look at his “kitchen” as the host of QVC’s most popular cooking show, “In the Kitchen with David®,” which airs every Wednesday at 8 p.m. (EST) and Sunday at noon (EST).

Family Fun And More At A Riverboat Festival (NAPSA)—For a boatload of enjoyment, people from all over the world will be flowing into the site of the Centennial Festival of Riverboats, October 14 through 19, 2014, on the Ohio River and its banks at Louisville, Kentucky’s internationally acclaimed Waterfront Park. The family-friendly event celebrates America’s unique riverboat heritage as, in honor of the historic Belle of Louisville’s 100th birthday, nine riverboats provide the dramatic backdrop for six days of food, bourbon, music and art. The Belle Of The Occasion A National Historic Landmark, the Belle of Louisville was originally named the Idlewild when she was built in 1914 to be a ferry and day packet vessel. Completely paddle wheel–driven with a steel hull that draws only 5' of water, she was able to travel on virtually every navigable inland waterway, earning her the distinction of being the most widely traveled river steamboat in the nation. What You Can Do Try a cruise on the mighty Ohio River, hear live music, sample the finest spirits in the world and experience history firsthand. The birthday festivities include a riverboat parade, live concerts, a taste of Kentucky through local fare and vendors, and a chance to discover new talent through outdoor art displays. By night, gaze at the glowing hot air balloons from the Great Lawn during Belle’s Balloon Glow and enjoy the brilliant spectacle of fire and light during the fireworks show at Belle’s Big Birthday Bash. On the river you can enjoy: •Delightful Dining: Slow down and enjoy a taste of Kentucky history for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Indulge in

Rethinking Water To Grow More Crop Per Drop (NAPSA)—Water, at least in the forms needed for human health, economic production and farming, is scarce and growing scarcer. Over the next 15 years, nearly 40 percent of the global population will experience severe water use challenges. While the Earth appears to be covered by water, only one-half of 1 percent of the planet’s water is actually available for use as freshwater, according to the United States Department of the Interior. All segments of society must contribute to meeting the water challenge and agriculture will need to be a big part of the solution. Unpredictable weather and the need for increased irrigation efficiency are causing many farmers to rethink water, especially the amount they use. Rather than discussing yields solely in terms of bushels per acre, conversations are beginning to revolve around bushels per inch of available water. Syngenta, a global seed and crop protection company, believes using bushels per inch of available water as a guide will help farmers to better measure their efforts to increase water efficiency—and grow more crop per drop. As an industry leader in water optimization—helping crops use water more efficiently—Syngenta is helping farmers rethink water and grow more from less by taking a whole-farm approach to improving water efficiency. Farmers can do this with biotech advances, crop protection technologies and integrated crop solutions that allow them to attain greater crop yields while using less water. Advances in plant breeding, for example, are helping Syngenta researchers identify and select genes that work to help plants use water more efficiently

At 75 percent irrigation, Water+TM Intelligent Irrigation Platform outyielded the standard grower program at 100 percent irrigation.* and provide season-long defense against drought. Because water optimization is more than one genetic trait, one technology—or one company— industry partnerships will also be integral to meeting the water challenge. Water+™ Intelligent Irrigation Platform, an integrated solution for irrigated corn growers, combines market-leading agronomic products, technologies and services from Syngenta and Lindsay Corporation, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative irrigation systems. At 75 percent irrigation, Water+ Intelligent Irrigation Platform outyielded the standard grower program at 100 percent irrigation.* Experts believe that rising global dietary standards, along with population growth, will require a doubling of global agriculture production by 2050. This growth must be attained with sustainable management practices, meaning water use efficiency must continue to improve. So agriculture needs to make significant changes to the way food is grown—and must rethink water.

They are an inexpensive gift that gives back to the family. Gathering around the table with a fast-paced game is a perfect prescription for happier holiday memories. Some of the best new board games don’t even come with a board—they come with things like action-packed dice or playful letter tiles. Today’s games are often designed for speed of play and versatility, and have something for players of practically all ages. Some are also made to be played on a smartphone against others so you can stay connected and turn those holiday laughs into ongoing fun from afar. Two of the latest are Square Shooters and Dabble. Shake Things Up With Cards On Dice If you love card games, Square Shooters is a game that shakes up the action. It features the world’s first deck of playing cards printed on nine dice. This award winner is fun enough in its basic form— players vie for points by rolling the dice to match poker hands— but what makes it special are the endless possibilities. Players can try a dice version of almost any card game, from poker to rummy. The game is available at Walmart, Walgreens and Target—and free on the iPhone.

Gathering around the table with a fast-paced game can make for happy holiday memories. Bring Generations Together With A New Word Game Want something everyone in the family can enjoy? Consider Dabble, an award-winning game that’s great for children and adults. At the core of the game lies a fast-paced word game that will help children develop many useful skills—including vocabulary, spelling and quick thinking. Each player gets 20 tiles, and the first player to make five words using his or her 20 tiles wins. You can learn how to play in seconds yet be challenged for a lifetime. Dabble is available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon. There’s an app for it for the iPhone, iPad, Google Play, Kindle Fire, Nook and free on Facebook.

Creating The Next Generation Of Lifesavers (NAPSA)—Nearly 360,000 people experience cardiac arrest outside of a hospital each year and most of those victims die, often because bystanders don’t know how to start CPR or are afraid they’ll do something wrong. The American Heart Association believes kids are the answer to saving more lives. How That Works The nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke, the American Heart Association, is helping prepare more students, their teachers and their families to save lives with the CPR in Schools Training Kit™. The hands-on, interactive kit is based on the latest science and makes it easy for educators to train the next generation of lifesavers in 30 minutes or less. Students practice CPR with their own inflatable manikin while watching and learning from a DVD such lifesaving techniques as hands-only CPR, giving breaths, choking relief and how to use an automated external defibrillator. The portable kit can be reused to train a whole class, grade or school. Each kit comes with 10 manikins and instructional DVDs so kids can take training home and help pass these lifesaving skills on to their family and community. Doctor’s Opinion “Four out of every five out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in private or residential settings, so we have to find ways to emphasize the importance of knowing CPR to save the lives of family members and loved ones,” said Robert W. Neumar, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chair of the

Classroom-tested kits empower educators to teach lifesaving CPR to hundreds of students. University of Michigan Medical School’s Department of Emergency Medicine. “The kits enable educators to teach students lifesaving CPR and empower schools to serve the families in their communities,” added Neumar, who serves as Chair of the American Heart Association’s Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee. Learn More Lawmakers in 12 states are requiring all students to be trained in psychomotor skill-based CPR before graduating from high school. Seven states have laws in place or that go into effect this school year, and five more have passed laws that will be implemented in the future.

Geothermal Systems Can Carry Tax Credits (NAPSA)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Tax credits for geothermal heat pumps are a hot item. According to WaterFurnace, a leading manufacturer of geothermal systems, in many cases, homeowners qualify for a federal tax credit for installing their products. Some homeowners may also qualify for additional utility and state rebates, which can make installing such systems even more affordable. Thanks to these incentives, a homeowner can save money when installing a geothermal system and continue to experience savings for years since such a system operates more efficiently and economically than traditional furnaces, air source heat pumps or air conditioners. Some states are also beginning to acknowledge that geothermal systems offer as much benefit when it comes to clean energy generation as wind and solar technology. In fact, the state of Maryland has enacted legislation that allows a utility to claim a renewable energy credit for installing a geothermal heat pump. Stored Solar Energy In general, geothermal heat pumps take advantage of free solar energy stored just below the surface of the earth. Using a series of pipes buried in the ground, the system extracts thermal energy, concentrates it, and distributes it throughout the home using traditional ductwork or radiant floor heating. The most efficient geothermal heat pump systems can deliver over five dollars of heating for every dollar of electrical energy it uses. That translates into reductions in heating and cooling bills by as much as 70 percent.

In addition to federal tax credits, in many cases, homeowners who install geothermal heating systems can also qualify for utility and state rebates. The system reverses to cool a structure. In that mode, it extracts heat from indoor air and either moves it back into the earth or into a water tank for domestic hot water. Additional Savings Geothermal systems, such as those produced by WaterFurnace, tend to produce more energy per square foot than solar systems while taking up less space. In addition, the majority of geothermal manufacturers offer equipment that can provide hot water to the home. Unlike solar solutions, these geothermal systems provide hot water around the clock, heating it at three to five times the efficiency of traditional gas or electic heaters. WaterFurnace International, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of residential, commercial, industrial and institutional geothermal and water source heat pumps.

Healthy, Beautiful Smiles Can Transform Lives (NAPSA)—More self-esteem, a better career and improved relationships may be on the tip of your tongue. Well, close to it. If your teeth are not as nice as you’d like, having them treated by an orthodontist could make a big difference in your life—and if you didn’t have them straightened when you were young, you may be glad to know it’s not too late. Adult orthodontic treatment contributes to significant improvements in both professional and personal lives, say respondents to a study conducted among adults who had the treatment. Survey Findings Seventy-five percent of adults surveyed reported improvements in career or personal relationships, which they attributed to their improved post-orthodontic treatment smile. Citing newfound self-confidence, 92 percent of survey respondents say they would recommend orthodontic treatment to other adults. Seventy-one percent of respondents had such pretreatment concerns as “What will others think?” “How will I look?” “Am I too old?,” but an overwhelming majority said the concerns were gone once treatment actually began. Respondents reported positive outcomes: •“I was much more confident and self-assured once I could smile openly. Life is very stressful [on a subconscious level] when you’re always aware that you cannot open your mouth to smile without fear of judgment.” •“With an attractive smile, you can face your career and personal relationships with confidence.” •“A more brilliant smile and the straightest teeth gave me confidence to do anything.”

Private pilot Amielle Abshire says or thodontic treatment improved her smile. The Doctor’s Opinion Says Gayle Glenn, D.D.S., M.S.D., president of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO): “Adults are seeking treatment in record numbers and we encourage anyone, at any age, to consult an orthodontist to learn if he or she could benefit from treatment. It’s never too late to move healthy teeth.” After dental school, orthodontists receive an additional two to three years of specialized education at an accredited orthodontic residency program. Only those who have successfully completed this formal education may call themselves “orthodontists,” and only orthodontists are eligible for AAO membership. Based on their education and experience, orthodontists can devise effective treatment plans that employ the full range of treatment types, from high-tech to tried-and-true, based on the needs of each individual patient.
