Daily Dental Care Tips While regular visits to the dentist’s office for routine cleanings are important for dental health, taking care of your teeth and gums each day is paramount to keeping your mouth healthy. Here are some brushing-and-beyond tips to help prevent oral health problems down the road. Preventative care is imperative. Basic hygiene practices can help maintain the health of your mouth. Remember to: Regularly brush with toothpaste, floss and visit your dentist. Brush at least twice a day. Purchase a brush with soft bristles and make sure to use light pressure while brushing so you don’t wear away tooth enamel. A great option is a battery-powered toothbrush like the ARM & HAMMER® Spinbrush® ProClean®. Pay attention to your toothbrush. Does it need to be replaced? A good rule is to purchase a new toothbrush every three to four months. Speak with your dentist about best brushing and flossing practices, as well as the recommended number of visits to the dentist’s office each year. The number of necessary visits may vary depending on specific patient needs. Preventing enamel loss. Consuming too many acidic foods or soft drinks, and a long list of other factors, can weaken enamel. Enamel loss can lead to cavities, tooth sensitivity, discoloration and other oral health problems. To help maintain your tooth enamel, try to avoid drinks such as soda and fruit juices, and foods such as those high in citric acid or sugar content whenever possible.

You can also look to products such as ARM & Tooth pain HAMMER® Complete Care™ Enamel StrengthTooth decay or cavities ening Toothpaste, which is specially formulated Receding gum lines with Fluoride and Liquid Calcium® to help rebuild Bleeding of the gums enamel.

Bob Baker Marionette Theater 53rd Season SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT Open-ended run begins performances February 2, 2013 The Bob Baker Marionette Theater celebrates its 53rd season with an open-ended run of the perennial puppet favorite “Something To Crow About” beginning performances February 2, 2013. Come join Mama and Papa Goat and 100 more of the world famous Bob Baker Marionettes for a musical “Day on the Farm” you will never forget. Everything from dancing scarecrows to tap dancing bullfrogs warbling “Shine On Harvest Moon”, “Something To Crow About” is guaranteed to put a smile on children of all ages! The production, which first opened at the Laguna Arts Festival 60 years ago, utilizes recordings from the familiar to the truly eclectic, and features puppet representations of every animal on the farm (along with dancing fireflies and even waltzing laundry!) This was the first production to utilize Bob Baker’s now famous “in the round’ style of puppetry. “Something To Crow About” is an hour-long production. After the performance, guests are invited to visit with the Puppeteers and have refreshments in the famous Party Room. The Bob Baker Marionette Theater in downtown Los Angeles is the oldest of its kind in the United States and has been entertaining children of all ages since its inception in 1960. At that time, Bob Baker and his business partner Alton Wood turned a scene shop in Los Angeles into the family entertainment landmark that it is today. The theater has an inventory of nearly three thousand puppets with just about everything from robots that light up, to dancing frogs, to egg laying chickens. Baker’s marionettes have entertained nearly seven hundred thousand people since the theater’s opening. Jennifer Steinhauer of The New York Times has described Baker’s shows as “a staple of a Los Angeleno childhood. It is the cultural equivalent of the annual march by the nation’s third graders to the neighborhood firehouse.” On June 3, 2009, The Bob Baker Marionette Theater was declared an historic cultural monument by the city of Los Angeles. Bob Baker first became interested in puppetry at the age of five, and has since become an innovator, artist, puppet master, and top-notch animator with credits in television and film. His marionettes have entertained thousands of children and adults Page 4

worldwide over the years. Mr. Baker has a current inventory of over three thousand puppets, with just about everything from robots that light up, to dancing frogs, to egg laying chickens. Bob began to learn the magic of puppetry at the early age of eight. He trained with several different local companies and put his skills to work with his first professional performance for director Mervyn Leroy. After graduating from Hollywood High School, he began his extensive career in animation at the George Pal Studios. He began as an apprentice and soon became a top animator of “Puppetoons” a year later. After WWII, Bob began manufacturing toy marionettes that sold both in Europe and the United States. Fifty of the finest department stores in the country carried his line including Bullocks Wilshire, Saks Fifth Avenue, Niemen Marcus, FAO Schwarz, and Marshall Fields. Bob also served as an animation advisor at many film studios including Walt Disney. As a puppeteer his prestigious credits include the films: “A Star Is Born”, “G.I. Blues,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, “Escape to Witch Mountain,” and “Bedknobs and Broomsticks”, as well as work on countless television series and projects. Baker has performed with the likes of Judy Garland, Elvis Presley, and Angela Lansbury.   Aside from running the theater,

The Newport News

Baker maintains an active role in the company’s traveling shows. Bob has taken his marionettes to countless fairs, puppet festivals, and of course, birthday parties. The Bob Baker Marionettes have entertained audiences in Las Vegas, Toronto, New York, Germany, and have even performed on Navy ships and submarines. Mr. Baker is the former president of the Los Angeles Puppet Guild and Governor of the Television Arts & Sciences Animation Branch and currently sits on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Bob’s dream of establishing a school began with the formation of the Academy of Puppetry and Allied Arts, a non-profit organization.  The Academy’s mission is to educate the public about puppet arts and to encourage and foster puppetry presentations.  The Academy of Puppetry provides funding to subsidize tickets for students from local area schools to attend performances at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater and distributes literacy and language development resources that bring the experiences at the Theater back to the classrooms. The Academy of Puppetry provides

students and teachers in the Los Angeles area the opportunity to attend puppetry presentations and learn about the integration of puppetry arts with language arts, music, art, sculpture and crafts. The program also fulfills the Academy of Puppetry and Allied Arts’ mission of preserving puppetry arts and creative live entertainment for future generations of children and adults.  Bob’s goal of a refurbished theater complex complete with training facilities is still a long way off.  However, Bob hopes that, with the aid of civic leaders and corporate sponsors, his Academy will one day be a reality and housed in buildings adjacent to the historic Theater.

Choosing a Weight Loss Plan that’s Right for You Losing weight and getting into shape is a goal many Americans aspire to achieve. Choosing a weight loss plan that fits your lifestyle is a crucial first step in developing the diet that works for you. The road to a sound weight loss plan should begin with the following steps: Talk with your doctor First and foremost, speak with your doctor. Your healthcare provider can help you set attainable weight loss goals as well as discuss any medical conditions you have or medications you may take that could affect your ability to modify your diet. Talking with your doctor can help you find a plan that’s tailored to your particular needs. Choose the right plan for you One size does not fit all when it comes to diets. In fact, several studies featured in the International Journal of Obesity Supplements (IJOS) reported that adults with greater insulin resistance are more successful with weight loss on a low-carbohydrate diet compared with a low-fat diet. In such cases, a low-carbohydrate diet such as the Atkins Diet has been proven to have positive results on insulin resistance. Dieters start with a focus on carbohy-

drates from vegetables and slowly add back fruit, nuts and whole grains as one’s carb balance is established and weight loss goals are met. Opt for a diet backed by science over the latest fad. Commit to your Plan Losing weight and keeping it off requires a long-term commitment. Once you have developed your weight loss plan it is important that you stick with it. You need to make healthy changes to both your diet and lifestyle. Your diet should include foods you will enjoy eating for a long time, not just for a few weeks or months. Adopt a plan that gives you the ability to enjoy a variety of food options. For example, if you are a veggie lover, the Atkins Diet could be a good plan for you to follow. From day one, the low-carb diet allows you to consume more vegetables than are recommended by USDA Guidelines. In fact, you can even follow Atkins as a vegetarian or vegan. Finding a plan that works for your lifestyle and incorporates more of the foods you already love will help reinforce your new healthier eating habits.

to family and friends who have made similar lifestyle changes for support and advice.

Since that debut, she has starred in the national tour of Annie Get Your Gun, Meet Me in St. Louis, Paint Your Wagon, They’re Playing Our Song and as the ‘Cat in the Hat” in Seussical both on Broadway and on tour. However, PETER PAN remains Cathy’s favorite. “One of the greatest gifts of my theatrical career has been the opportunity to play ‘Peter Pan’. The thrill of seeing the faces of children as I fly over their heads sprinkling fairy dust

and having the chance (eight times a week) to relive the adventure of a perfect “make believe” childhood.” Her greatest joy is the reaction, letters and emails that she receives from countless children and adults alike. Joining the Tony® Award nominee Cathy Rigby is Broadway’s Brent Barrett as Mr. Darling/Hook. Brent has entertained millions of fans around the world from Broadway to the West End, concerts halls, recording studios, film and television.

Other credits include the A&E Television Network Premiere of “PETER PAN,” which received 4 Emmy Award Nominations and one Emmy Award; “The Historic All Star Concert for Pope John Paul II” at the Los Angeles Coliseum, and the award-winning documentary on balancing wellness, titled “Faces of Recovery.” Based on several chapters that appeared in James M. Barrie’s 1902 novel, “The Little White Bird,” the play PETER PAN was first performed in

London in 1904. The present musical comedy version of Barrie’s classic first appeared in 1954 starring Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard in the leading roles. PETER PAN recounts the adventures of the three Darling children as they fly away from their nursery into the magic and wonder of Never Land. It is in Never Land that they encounter the cunning and evil Captain Hook, villainous pirates, a crafty crocodile and a sprightly fairy, Tinker Bell. The score, a joint effort by Moose Charlap, Carolyn Leigh, Jule Styne and Betty Comden and Adolph Green remains a favorite of children and adults alike. PETER PAN features such classics as “I Gotta Crow,” “Neverland” and “I’m Flying.” Production is directed by Glenn Casale who directed the 1999 Tony® Award nominated and Emmy winning Cathy Rigby is PETER PAN. Mr. Casale has been a resident at the California Musical Theatre for almost 23 seasons where he has directed over 550 shows. The flying sequence choreographer is Paul Rubin, “The Fly Guy”, has choreographed some of the most memorable flying sequences from the Tony® Award winning Broadway production of Wicked to Cathy Rigby’s Emmy Award winning DVD of PETER PAN. The creative

team includes Patti Columbo (Choreographer), Bruce Barnes (Musical Director), Michael Gilliam (Lighting Design), Julie Ferrin (Sound Design), Sean Boyd (Fight Director) and Julia Flores (Casting Director).

NEWPORTERS FIND HAND AND STONE DAY SPA THE MOST RELAXING PART OF THEIR DAY Local Newport Attorney David Besser, Owner of the popular Hand and Stone Massage Day Spa facility says that His personal Philosophy has a made his business a success by “helping people relax and feel good about themselves, and eliminating tension in their lives.” After 5 years of practicing law in Orange County, focusing primarily on business and real estate litigation, Besser decided to invest in a new business, and after months of research and proposals, determined that a Hand & Stone day spa franchise was the best option for him. Besser states “we all work very hard at whatever we do, and that we live busy and sometimes relentless lives, which was why the idea of offering an affordable “retreat” from the daily grind really appealed to me. As a practicing attorney, I know that stress and confrontation are just part of the game, which was why I chose to branch out into an industry that focused more on which is exactly what Hand & Stone Costa Mesa is all about. With our exemplary selection of massage, facial, and skin treatments, customers drive from all over Southern California to take a break, and enjoy a couple hours of relaxation.” Besser seems analytical about his choice” I was also extremely interested in the membership based business model that Hand & Stone is based on, as it offers business owners a predictable stream of revenue each month, in contrast to other businesses that suffer from the ebb and flow of the seasonal business current.

More than anything, however, I wanted to own a business that I believed in, and wanted to take an active part in bettering the everyday lives of Local Newport and Costa Mesa residents. So far, that is working very well for me,” says Besser.

Foundation for the Great Park Supports Solar Decathlon Teams On a crisp, clear evening, the Foundation for the Great Park hosted the Solar Decathlon student teams for an orientation dinner at the Orange County Great Park. Attended by nearly 300 students, representing 20 collegiate teams competing in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013, the orientation dinner was marked by a spirit of enthusiasm. The arrival of the students marks a significant milestone in the planning efforts for the event, which will attract worldwide attention to Irvine and Orange County. Foundation Vice Chair, Janet Ray, commented, “The Foundation is so pleased to welcome the students representing the 20 competing teams and we wish them all the best as they prepare to build their entries for Solar Decathlon 2013.” The Solar Decathlon challenges teams to design, build and operate solarpowered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. Open to the public and free of charge, the Solar Decathlon enables visitors to tour the houses, gather ideas to use in their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can help them save money today. “This is the first time the Solar Decathlon will be held outside of Washington, D.C.,” said Richard King, Director of Solar Decathlon for the U.S. Department of Energy. “We are so excited to be in California! The Solar Decathlon 2013 teams are some of the most impressive we have seen to date. We look forward to introducing the students to the Great Park this weekend and to watching their innovations come to life in Irvine this fall.” The event will take place from October 3 through October 13, 2013, at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California. The competition houses will be open to visitors free of charge on eight days over two weekends.

the Best Diet for Permanent Weight Loss By John Phillip Many people proclaim to have the best diet or lifestyle plan to achieve permanent weight loss, yet nearly 95% of those who begin a new dietary program fail to hit their goal or keep the weight off for good. To a large extent genetics are to blame, as the basic survival mechanism which has allowed us to thrive for generations is also to blame for our weight loss failures. Drink Water Before Each Meal Research now confirms that one of the simplest methods for healthy weight loss may offer hope to the millions who struggle with their weight, and is simple and inexpensive. Research presented to the American Chemical Society shows that drinking 2 cups of water right before each meal is enough to help dieters lose an additional 5 pounds over a 90 day period. Information from this study concludes that the water is enough to fill the stomach before eating so you feel full and don’t over eat. Experts advise everyone to drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water each day, as this supports healthy liver function and is essential for proper fat metabolism. Drink More Water, Less Diet Drinks Page 16

Another benefit from drinking water before each meal is that it helps eliminate the temptation to drink sweetened beverages or diet drinks which are known to sabotage weight loss efforts. Water before meals is a great way to stimulate weight loss with minimal effort, but in order to achieve permanent results, you need to make the correct choice between quick weight loss plans and a sustainable fat burning program. Quick Weight Loss Plan There are certain circumstances when you may need to resort to a quick weight loss plan. Nutritional experts warn that rapid weight loss is not the way to drop those extra pounds as they typically involve diet pills or meals which are nutritionally imbalanced and exclude important food groups. People look to rapid weight loss programs so they can look good for a special event or to fit into a favorite bathing suit. While these may be good reasons to begin your weight loss journey, it’s important to avoid commercially marketed fat burning pills and synthetic metabolism boosters. Some may deliver quick results, but the weight loss cannot be sustained and these artificial supple-

ments will damage your health in the long term. Permanent Weight Loss Program A fat burning weight loss plan is the only method which will deliver healthy weight reduction. Quick weight loss schemes help you to lose water and muscle mass, neither of which leads to sustainable weight reduction for life. The best way to drop weight and burn fat is to follow a sensible, reduced calorie diet and compliment with regular physical activity. Plan to lose between 1 and 2 pounds each week. If you find yourself losing more weight, then increase your calories, as weight lost too quickly is a sign that you’re wasting precious muscle tissue and not actually burning body fat. Men need 1800 calories per day, while women should plan for 1500 calories. Ensure that your menu is well balanced, including healthy options from all food groups and concentrated with plenty of fresh leafy greens and vegetables.

The most common weight loss mistake is losing weight too rapidly. Once you’ve made the decision to begin a new weight loss lifestyle, weight yourself twice each week and keep a chart of your progress, making sure that you don’t drop too fast. Stay away from damaging diet pills and fad diets, in favor of healthy meal options. You’ll enjoy the health benefits of a well planned, steady weight reduction program leading to permanent and sustainable weight loss for life.

Skillet Suppers – The Secret to Stress-Free Weeknights The busy school year means that dinner planning often gets pushed aside. Moms and dads alike may find themselves opting for the drive-thru instead of the dinner table. But that’s not the only option. Homemade Quick Chili Mac Skillet was created with busy weeknights in mind. Not only is it quick and easy, it’s a family-friendly and healthy dinner that you can feel good about serving. Start with everyone’s favorite elbow pasta, but not just any pasta. Choose one that offers some extra benefits that traditional pasta doesn’t provide. For example, Dreamfields Elbows are made from durum wheat semolina, which ensures the taste and texture of traditional pasta, but with a nutritional boost. Five grams of fiber per 1-cup cooked serving and fewer digestible carbohydrates make it a delicious and healthy option to traditional pasta. While the pasta cooks, brown ground beef and onion, making sure the beef is completely cooked. Stir in a pinch of chili powder for a peppery kick; add diced canned tomatoes and kidney beans – super simple. On these time-crazed days, swapping out hand-chopping for the can opener makes a lot of sense.

Simply toss the chili with the pasta, sprinkle with cheese and serve a delicious one-dish dinner that will get the entire family back to the table. A green salad or fruit would be a great way to round out the menu. Quick Chili Mac Skillet Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Makes 4 servings 1/2 box Dreamfields Elbows 2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil 1/2 pound lean ground beef (85% lean) 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped 1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained 1 can (15 ounces) kidney or black beans, rinsed and drained Salt Coarsely ground black pepper 1/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend Cook pasta according to package

directions. Drain; return to pan. Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brown ground beef and onion 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is cooked through and onions are tender, breaking beef into large crumbles. Stir in chili powder then tomatoes. Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes to blend flavors. Add beans; heat through.

Note: If desired, ground chicken or turkey breast may be substituted for the ground beef. Nutrition information (1/4 of recipe): 425 calories; 25g protein; 29g digestible carbohydrates*; 12g total fat; 4g saturated fat; 40mg cholesterol; 331mg sodium; 11g total dietary fiber.

A Better Breakfast for Busy Families Eating breakfast is a good idea, but for busy families, it can be hard to find a quick and easy option the whole family enjoys. Here are a few ideas to help get a nutritious and delicious breakfast on the table, even when you’re short on time. Set the table the night before. Put dishes, silverware and glasses in place, then add nonperishables in the morning. If you’ll want coffee, program your coffeemaker and have cups and add-ins in place. Having everything ready gives you more time to enjoy breakfast as a family. Make things simple by getting one cereal the whole family will enjoy, such as Post Honey Bunches of Oats. Kids of all ages will love the honey-sweetened taste, and parents will feel good knowing it’s a wholesome cereal that provides essential vitamins and minerals with at least 8g whole grain per serving*. With a delicious choice sure to please everyone, have the cereal within easy reach so kids can serve themselves. To help with portion control, divvy up servings into baggies so it’s easy for everyone to get the right amount. Let everyone customize their breakfast. It doesn’t take much time to make a parfait – everyone can layer their favorite yogurt with different fruits and crunchy cereal. Make individual smoothies, or set out various cereal toppings like yogurt, nuts, berries or fruits. Keep a stash of wholesome on-the-go breakfasts in case you’re running late. Whole fruit, yogurt cups, and these Cranberry Orange Muffins make it easy to grab and go, without missing the most important meal of the day. Page 18

t beats about 100,000 times a day, 35 million times a year. It pumps blood through the body three times every minute, taking that blood on the equivalent of a 12,000 mile trek every 24 hours. Even at rest, it works twice as hard as the leg muscles of a person running. The heart is a remarkable, vital muscle that warrants great care and maintenance. Yet 1 in every 4 deaths is due to heart disease. While there are some inherent risk factors such as aging or family history, poor lifestyle choices are often to blame for the onset of heart disease. The good news is that making better lifestyle choices reduces your risk of heart disease — and it’s not as hard as you might think.

Heart-Healthy Living Works

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people who most closely followed the diet and lifestyle recommendations of the American Heart Association (AHA) had a 76 percent lower risk of dying from heart disease, and a 51 percent lower risk of all-cause deaths than those who didn’t follow recommendations as closely. The study also found that only a small number of people follow all or most of the AHA guidelines for heart health. So it’s not surprising that heart disease is still the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can start making changes today that will help make your heart healthier in the long run.

3 Changes You Can Make 1 Eat Better

One of your best weapons against cardiovascular disease is a healthy diet. Eating a wide variety of foods that are low in fat, cholesterol and salt, but rich in nutrients can help protect your heart. Instead of thinking about a healthy diet in terms of what you can’t eat, think about it in terms of what you can eat. Add more: n Fruits and vegetables — about 4 1/2 cups a day n Whole grain foods — at least three 1-ounce servings a day n Fish — at least two 3 1/2-ounce servings a week n Nuts, legumes and seeds — at least four servings a week About 25 percent of the cholesterol in your blood comes from the foods you eat. Eating healthy foods low in cholesterol, trans fats and saturated fats, as well as foods that are high in fiber, can help keep cholesterol levels in check. Another way to help control cholesterol levels is by incorporating soy protein into your healthy diet. An extensive body of research has shown that soy-based diets can reduce LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides, and raise HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol).

One of the key components in soy’s cholesterol lowering properties is something called lunasin, a naturally occurring soy peptide. It was found to work at the earlier stage of cholesterol production in the body, or at what’s known as the epigenetic level. This indicated that heart disease and other hereditary conditions might be controllable by adding lunasin to your diet. Research on lunasin was so promising that scientists found a way to extract lunasin from soybeans so that it could be made available in a pure form. Lunasin content in soy-based foods varies by product and by brand. For example, LunaRich soy powder delivers the lunasin equivalent of 25 grams of soy protein. To get that same amount from other foods, you would need to drink approximately 32 ounces of soy milk, or eat approximately 12 ounces of tofu. Learn more about lunasin at

The Food and Drug Administration approved the health claim that “25 grams of soy protein per day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.” Additional research over the last decade indicates that soy, and a peptide within soy called lunasin, could work to prevent a variety of other hereditary health conditions.

2 Get Moving

According to the AHA, nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t get the physical activity they need. But daily physical activity can increase your quality and length of life. Moderate exercise can help you lose weight, reduce your chances of stroke, diabetes and heart disease complications, lower your blood pressure and prevent other serious medical complications. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate activity a day, five times per week. Here are some easy ways to get moving: n Start walking — Walk just fast enough to get your heart rate up. Try taking brisk, 10-minute walks throughout the day. Park farther away from your destination. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Walk the dog after dinner or walk to a neighborhood destination instead of driving. n Do chores — Outdoor chores like gardening, raking leaves and washing the car are good ways to get moving. Cleaning house does it, too. Try turning on some music and dancing while doing chores. Even small changes like these can give you health benefits, but you’ll see bigger benefits when you increase the duration, frequency and intensity of your activities. Always talk with your doctor to find out if there are any activities that you should not be doing.

3 Lose Weight

Being overweight is a risk factor for heart disease all on its own. Extra weight puts more burden on your heart, lungs, blood vessels and bones. Being overweight increases the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, as well. Losing even 10 pounds can produce a significant reduction in blood pressure. n Talk to your doctor — Find out your body mass index (BMI), which is your body weight relative to your height. Find out what your BMI should be, and find out what your calorie intake should be for someone of your age, gender and level of physical activity. n Keep track of what you eat — This will tell you a lot about your eating habits and help you make smart decisions, like controlling portion sizes and choosing nutrient-rich foods. n Set reasonable goals — Don’t go for fad diets that claim you’ll lose 10 pounds in a week. Slow and steady weight loss is more likely to stay off, and you’ll be healthier in the long run. The good news is, if you put steps one and two into place — eating healthier foods and getting more active — step three should be a natural byproduct of your efforts. Your heart works hard for you — start taking better care of it today so that it can keep working for you for a long time.
