“Let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.” – Goran Persson, former Swedish prime minister

E

veryone has their own traditions when it comes to ringing in the New Year. Some gather with friends and family to eat, drink and watch the ball drop in Times Square. Others sit quietly at home with their loved ones and barely stay awake long enough to watch the fireworks display from the top of Pikes Peak at the stroke of midnight. There’s no right or wrong way to go about it. But what do people in other parts of the world do? Snippetz was curious so naturally, we’re conducting our own celebration investigation and here’s what we found!

Much of what people focus on during their New Year’s celebrations has to do with luck and prosperity. Food plays a huge part in that type of celebration. For example, many people have heard of eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day as a way to bring prosperity. Black-eyed peas swell when they are cooked which is said to symbolize prosperity.

AUSTRIA On New Year’s morning, molten lead is poured into a bucket of water to see what shapes, called bleigiessen, the lead makes. A soothsayer interprets what is seen and makes predictions about the upcoming year. A word of warning, however; if the lead takes the shape of an old woman, it is a bad.

In other places like Brazil, lentils are cooked and eaten which is supposed to bring wealth in the coming year.

GERMANY Germans, who perform the same molten lead tradition as the Austrians believe that if the lead takes the shape of a heart or a ring, it means a wedding will take place. If it forms a ship, it signifies a journey. A pig indicates that there will be plenty of food in the upcoming year. They also leave a small bit of food on every plate they eat from on New Year’s Eve until after midnight to ensure they will have a well-stocked refrigerator during the New Year. Carp is especially important to this tradition

Other similar celebration traditions include banishing bad spirits in an effort to make room for good spirits to come into your life during the New Year. In Austria, evil spirits are chased away by firing mortars.

And what would a New Year’s celebration be with lots and lots of noise? Just about every celebration involves some sort of noisy merriment, as well it should. For example, in Armenia, it’s customary for children to gather in groups and go around from house to house, singing songs about the New Year to their neighbors.

BRAZIL On New Year’s Eve, the priestesses of one of the local indigenous tribes dress in blue skirts and white flowing blouses to celebrate the goddess of water, Yemanja. They load up a boat with flowers, candles and jewelry and push it out to sea from Rio de Janeiro’s famous Ipanema beach.

GREAT BRITAIN After the stroke of midnight signaling the start of the New Year, the first male to visit your house is supposed to bring good luck. Often visitors bring a gift of money, bread or coal to ensure the family will not be without these items in the year to come. Another warning: if the first person is blond, red-haired or a woman, bad luck could be on your way.

ube River, young women perform the rite of Ladouvane on New Year’s Eve. During this rite, the young women of a village put their rings into a cauldron along with oats and barley (symbols of fertility) and fill it with spring water. The rings are then fastened together on a red thread and tied to a punch of perennial plants like ivy or basil. The cauldron is then placed outside and following a ritual dance around it, all the young women have their fortune told.

portant gift-giving day than Christmas and stories are often told of how St. Basil comes at night and leaves presents for the kids in their shoes. A very important food item on St. Basil’s Day is Vassilopitta (St. Basil’s cake), inside of which is baked a gold or silver coin. The cake is cut into pieces and given out in the following order: St. Basil first, one for the household second and then one for each member of the household starting from the eldest and going to the youngest. Whoever finds the coin in their piece will be lucky in the upcoming year.

Because the people of Cambodia us the Indian Calendar, their New Year comes in April and their festivities last for three days. It’s called Chaul Chnam Thmey. During this time, people clean and decorate their houses and set up an altar to Tevada Chnam Thmey who they believe comes down to earth at this time. People also dump water on each other as a blessing. The water is often colored red, pink or yellow to symbolize a colorful future. Another Cambodian tradition that might have to make its way to the United States is where children give their parents and other elder relatives money as a sign of respect. Who’s with me?

DENMARK On New Year’s Eve, it’s tradition to throw old dishes that have been saved throughout the year at the homes of your friends. The more broken dishes you end up with, the more friends you have.

GREECE In Greece, New Year’s Day is also thought to be the day when St. Basil died. St. Basil is one of the forefathers of the Greek Orthodox Church and was said to have been very kind and generous to the poor. In fact, St. Basil’s Day (New Year’s Day) is a more im-

JAPAN In order to keep out evil spirits, Japanese people hang a rope made of straw across the front of their houses which symbolizes happiness and good luck. Japanese people also make themselves laugh as the New Year begins as a way to bring good luck in the upcoming year. Of course there are many, many other traditions that help people around the world ring in the New Year. In fact, there are so many that it would be impossible to list all the different kinds here. But hopefully you have gotten a taste of what the rest of the world does in anticipation of the New Year. And hopefully you will find a way to celebrate this time of rebirth and second chances with your family, friends and other loved ones with the knowledge that, no matter how you choose to celebrate it, we at Snippetz wish you a very Happy New Year!

MYTHS FUEL HOLIDAY DRUNK DRIVING

D

uring Christmas and New Year’s, two to three times more people die in alcohol-related crashes than during comparable periods the rest of the year. And 40 percent of traffic fatalities during these holidays involve a driver who is alcohol-impaired, compared with 28 percent for the rest of December. Although many of us are aware of these troubling statistics, myths persist about drinking and driving -- such as how quickly alcohol affects the body and how long these effects can last.

EFFECTS BEGIN QUICKLY Holiday revelers may not recognize that critical driving-related skills and decisionmaking abilities are diminished long there are physical signs of intoxication. Initially, alcohol acts as a stimulant, and people who drink may temporarily feel upbeat and excited. But they shouldn’t be fooled. Alcohol soon affects inhibitions and judgment, leading to reckless decisions

behind the wheel. As more alcohol is consumed, reaction time suffers and behavior becomes poorly controlled and sometimes aggressive -- further compromising driving abilities. Continued drinking can lead to the slurred speech and loss of balance that we typically associate with being drunk. At higher levels, alcohol acts as a depressant, which causes the drinker to become sleepy and sometimes pass out.

revelers believe that they can drive safely once they stop drinking and have a cup of coffee. Caffeine may help with drowsiness, but not with the effects of alcohol on decision-making or coordination.

difficult to give specific advice about drinking. But certain facts are clear -- there’s no way to speed up the brain’s recovery from alcohol and no way to make good decisions when you are drinking too much, too fast.

The truth is that even after someone stops drinking, alcohol in the stomach and intestine continue to enter the bloodstream for hours. Driving home late at night is especially hazardous, because the depressant action of alcohol magnifies a person’s natural drowsiness. The body needs time to metabolize (break down) alcohol and then to return to normal. There are no quick cures -- only time will help.

So this holiday season, don’t underestimate the effects of alcohol. Don’t believe you can beat them. If you choose to drink, here are some tips to keep in mind:

Driving abilities may even be impaired the next day, when any alcohol remaining in the system -- or the headache and disorientation associated with hangovers -- contributes to feelings of sluggishness.

CELEBRATING? PLAN AHEAD

AFTER DRINKING STOPS During a night of drinking, it’s also easy to misjudge alcohol’s lasting effects. Many

Because individuals are so different, it is

• Pace yourself. Know what constitutes a standard drink, and have no more than one per hour. • Have “drink spacers” -- make every other drink a nonalcoholic one. • Make plans to get home safely. Remember that a designated driver is someone who hasn’t had any alcohol, not simply the person in your group who drank the least.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have been with my husband for 33 years, and for the past six I have been suspicious of him being unfaithful. I went to the doctor and tested negative for HIV, but I was positive for herpes 1 and 2. My husband claims I could have had this since before we met and says that he’s completely innocent. Do you think I could have had this for 30 years and not known it? It seems rather unrealistic to me. -- D.F. ANSWER: Herpes viruses are a group of common viruses that share several traits, one of which is that they all stay dormant in the body and may cause recurrences in times of stress. Herpes simplex 1 causes an outbreak of cold sores: These often come out when people are ill or stressed. Herpes simplex 2 usually causes genital lesions. About 20 percent of adults in the U.S. are positive for HSV-2; many or even most of them don’t know they have it. Once you acquire HSV-2, it stays in your body forever, and may

*** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband tells me I have bad breath. I have seen my dentist and done all the things I was told to do, but there hasn’t been any improvement. I have tried many mouthwashes, without success. What more can I do? -- W.B.

OFFERING THE FINEST QUALITY AND LOWEST PRICES! We have re-designed the Palmer Lake Wellness Center to provide our clients with our very best!

ANSWER: You were right in starting out with your dentist. When no oral conditions are found that produce bad breath, then the most likely cause is mouth bacteria that produce odoriferous, sulfur compounds. Let me repeat what your dentists told you for the sake of others. Brush after every meal, and brush your tongue as far back as you can. You might want to get a tongue scraper for the backmost part of the tongue. That’s where the sulfur-producing bacteria live. Keep your mouth moist by drinking water or chewing sugar-free gum.

ost folks make at least of a couple of New Year’s resolutions. Here are some suggestions followed by the reality of everyday living:

Products containing zinc have been sold since the 1970s and have gotten mixed reviews for their effect on halitosis. Listerine with zinc is one product. Another is SmartMouth. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I had a breast lump removed two years ago. After the removal, I had radiation. Everything has been going fine, except for a breast infection I got last month. Were the treatments responsible? -A.D.

• “Don’t talk about other people.” Let’s see, I guess that means the only person we can talk about is me!

ANSWER: Surgery and radiation could have caused changes in the breast that made it more susceptible to an infection. But neither was the actual cause of it.

• “Never look back.” The traffic in front of you might suddenly slow down and you’ll rear-end somebody. • “Be willing to share you’re experience and advice with those around you.” It’s so much fun being able to say later on, “I told you so.”

***

• “Do something that will increase your heart rate and improve your muscle tone.” Take your computer out in the garage and beat it to death with a tire iron.

Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

• “Be willing to express yourself more openly.” Check state and local laws first.

(c) 2013 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

• “If someone hurts you, forgive them immediately.” Meaningful and satisfying retaliation takes great thought and careful preparation. • “Assume full responsibility for your actions.” Except those caused by others. •

“Be more intuitive.” It might make

up for your lack of intelligence and sound judgment. • “Live each day with integrity.” If you do, does that mean you can live each night with corruption? • “Celebrate each holiday just like you did when you were a child.” Your credit cards are all charged up, your house payment is late, and your car needs brakes. Face it: you can’t afford to celebrate the way you would like to. • “Be brave in the face of danger.” On the other hand, cowardice is much easier and usually less painful. • “Change your diet to include mainly health foods.” Unless you are old. Then you need all the preservatives you can get. • “Relax more.” Unless you feel more comfortable tense. • “Become a better communicator.” Otherwise, just shut up. • “Get out there and try to change the world for the better.” But don’t you dare mess with the status quo. • “Lose twenty pounds.” Here’s how: Take a two-week trip to Mexico, drink the water and eat the food. • “Be sincere.” If you can’t, at least try to fake it. • “Be yourself.” Unless you’re an idiot. • “Get all of your temporal affairs in order.” After all, you may live another twenty years. Now some comments from a few who’ve been there, done that: • “There are days when it takes all you’ve got just to keep up with the losers. –Robert Orben • “I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the time he killed himself.” –Johnny Carson • “Never eat more than you can lift.” –Miss Piggy • “Never write inane maxims.” –Dr. Ron Ross Send your comments to Dr.Ross@RonRossToday.com. ©2013 Dr. Ronald D.

MOMENTS IN TIME THE HISTORY CHANNEL

• On Jan. 2, 1811, Timothy Pickering, a Federalist from Massachusetts, becomes the first U.S. senator to be censured when the Senate approves a motion against him. Pickering was accused of violating congressional law by publicly revealing secret documents. • On Dec. 30, 1862, the U.S.S. Monitor sinks in a storm off Cape Hatteras, N.C. Just nine months earlier, the ship had been part of a revolution in naval warfare when the ironclad dueled to a standstill with the C.S.S. Virginia (Merrimack) -- the first time two ironclads faced each other in a naval engagement. • On Jan. 5, 1920, the New York Yankees major-league baseball club announces its purchase of the heavy-hitting outfielder George Herman “Babeâ€? Ruth from the Boston Red Sox for the sum of $125,000. The deal paid off as Ruth went on to smash his own home run record in 1920, hitting 54 homers. • On Jan. 1, 1946, on the island of Corregi-

dor, in Manila Bay, 20 Japanese soldiers approach a lone soldier -- literally waving a white flag. The soldiers had been living in an underground tunnel and only discovered that the war was over by reading it in the newspaper.

The Texas Court of Appeals recently had overturned his death sentence for the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald and was scheduled to grant him a new trial. • On Jan. 4, 1974, President Richard Nixon refuses to hand over tape recordings and documents that had been subpoenaed by the Senate Watergate Committee. Nixon would resign from office in disgrace eight months later. • On Dec. 31, 1984, Bernhard Goetz, the white man dubbed the “subway vigilanteâ€? after he shot four young black men on a New York City subway train, turns himself in at a police station in Concord, N.H. Goetz claimed that the men, all of whom had criminal records, were trying to rob him and that he had acted in self-defense.

SNIPPETZ WEEKLY MAGAZINE ®

Nick-Snips

FROM STREET TO THE BEAT By Nick Yanez

Do you like rock n’ roll? Back in the day, it seemed the revolutionary genre was pretty controversial. But, as they say, time heals all wounds. Over the past 50 years, Rock n’ Roll has become a pretty universally accepted genre. Whether it be the early days of Elvis, the ambitious and rambunctious shenanigans of The Who, or the shameless 80’s hair metal of Def Leppard, most generations have come to accept and love classic Rock n’ Roll. Unfortunately, most of these great rockers weren’t exactly saints. Many passed away at a young age or found themselves and their families buried in the aftermath of bad life decisions. Which is why today I bring you some good news (for the most part). So often we only hear negative news stories about famous people who are supposed to act as idols and role models; but there are good ones out there too. Take for example, Spanish guitar legend Carlos Santana…. It started in Oakland, CA. Local news affiliate KRON Channel 4 was doing a report on the struggles of homelessness in the bay area. They interviewed a man who identified himself as Marcus Malone, just as he was burrowing through a city dumpster. After a short interview with the station, Malone revealed something unexpected about himself. To everyone’s surprise, he told the sobering story of his downfall, “At one point I was with the Santana band” he explained, “the original Santana Blues Band… Now I’m homeless and on the streets” Marcus Malone didn’t end up there by chance alone. He actually committed a crime back in 1969; he was convicted and sentenced to prison that year. After spending time in the slammer, Ma-

lone lost contact with Santana, only to watch his bandmate soar to international fame. In fact, it was the year Malone spent in prison that Santana was signed to his first record deal! Talk about bad timing. Santana would go on to release countless records, hit songs, and snag 10 Grammy Awards. He is also a member of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame (class of 1998). In fact, that Hall of Fame membership goes to every member of Santana’s band too. Yet another missed opportunity for Malone. Luckily, this story gets less depressing. It turns out, Santana had tried recently tracking down Marcus Malone, and when the station heard his story, the members of KRON reached out to the famous singer and reunited the two lost bandmates! They caught the whole thing on camera – Carlos Santana running into the arms of his shocked and beat-down former bandmate. It was really a sight to see. Then, in an even more heartwarming turn of events, Santana said he is getting Malone off the streets and back in the studio! Can you imagine? You’ve thrown your whole life away, gone to prison, lost your family and friends. You’re alone, without a roof over your head, and the next day you’re recording with a rock n’ roll legend in a multimillion dollar recording studio!? It just goes to show that there are still good people out there, famous and nonfamous. It also goes to show that it’s never over. Sometimes it takes a random sequence of events or a grand act of kindness from an old friend. Sometimes, it just takes some good old fashioned hard work – but it’s never too late to turn your life around. It’s never too late to follow a dream. So, as we bring in this New Year together, let’s not fool ourselves. 2014 will not bring you a new career, body, or bank account. It will not fix all of your problems. But if you decide to, right now, 2014 could be the year you take the step towards liberation, and never look back. Happy New Year folks!

EAT NUTS, LIVE LONGER

F

or years, my doctor has been trying to steer me away from peanut butter and toward other nut butters, like almond and cashew, saying they were more nutritious. Recently, I discovered that a major manufacturer has come out with a line of cashew and almond butters that don’t have all that oil floating on top. I grabbed one of each and compared them to my usual brand of peanut butter Ð and found no appreciable difference between the types! Calories, proteins and total carbohydrates all were very similar. And now there’s even more reason to stick with what I like, which is peanut butter: A 30-year Harvard study of nearly 120,000 professionals that looked at consumption of nuts in the diet. Here’s what it learned: “Increased nut consumption is associated with a reduced risk of major chronic diseases, including cardio-

vascular disease and type 2 diabetes.” The more times per week the participants had nuts, the lower their mortality rate. “Those who consumed nuts seven or more times per week had a 20 percent lower death rate.” It was the same for peanuts and tree nuts, like pistachio, walnut, almond, hazelnut and cashew. And that isn’t all. The findings jibed with other studies done in the U.S., U.K. and the Netherlands. Granted, the researchers couldn’t explain exactly why this is so. Do people who eat nuts exercise more? Do they follow a healthier diet? (It was found that nut consumption caused less weight gain and was associated with smaller waists and less risk of obesity.) Therefore they don’t specifically say “eat nuts, live longer.” But there is a correlation, no matter how it works. Try putting crushed nuts on your salads, yogurt and cereal, or spreading nut butters on crackers or toast. Or just eat them by the handful.

HEARTY SOUP KEEPS WINTER CHILL AT BAY

F

or many people, the cold weather is a reason not to exercise outside or not to exercise at all. However, it is possible to get a great workout outdoors this winter, as long as you exercise caution and dress properly. Exercising in cold weather can put extra stress on the body. It is important to consult your physician if you have a medical condition that puts you at risk before starting a new outdoor regimen. The two conditions you have to worry about are frostbite and hypothermia. Frostbite is the freezing body tissue. It occurs most often on fingers, toes, ears and face. Symptoms of frostbite include pain, numbness, tingling and burning of the affected site. Hypothermia occurs when the core body temperature drops to below 95 degrees F. Symptoms include chills, fatigue, drowsi-

The right clothes are your first line of defense. Dress in layers. The first layer should be a thin synthetic fabric such as polypropylene, which helps draw sweat away from the body. The next layer should be fleece or wool to help insulate the body. The top layer should be waterproof to help keep heat from escaping and keep moisture and wind out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to protect areas of the body prone to frostbite. A thin pair of gloves under a heavier pair will protect hands. Thermal socks will help protect the feet. It may be necessary to purchase shoes a half size larger to allow for the thickness of the socks. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget a hat or headband to protect your ears.

After your winter workout, you can warm up with a hearty bowl of Kale and Potato Chowder. With potatoes replacing the cream traditionally used in chowder recipes, this is a fast, economical and healthy soup that will keep the chill away until spring.

Be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration is not just a risk in the summer. When sweating and increased breathing occur, in any type of weather, dehydration is a possibility. It is particularly important to warm up properly for cold weather workouts. The body tends to stiffen more easily in cold weather. Do a short warm-up activity to help prevent injury. Remember that shoveling snow can be a good workout, but also can take a toll on people who are not used to heavy lifting. Take the same precautions you would for any other hard outdoor workout, because that is exactly what it is!

3 cups water 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth 1 large carrot, sliced into thin rounds 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1. In a large pot, heat the oil. Add onions, salt, pepper and poultry or Italian seasoning; cook until onions are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and the tomatoes, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the potatoes, water and broth to the soup pot. Bring the ingredients to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook until potatoes are almost done, about 10 minutes. 2. Remove 2 cups of the potatoes along with some of the liquid. Place the potatoes and liquid into a blender. Carefully loosen the top of the blender to allow air to circulate, and cover the top with a dish towel to prevent the hot liquid from exploding out. Start blending on the lowest setting, and gradually increase to medium and then high. Blend until the potatoes are smooth.

3. Add the potato mixture, kale, carrots and kidney beans to soup pot; stir to combine. Continue cooking for 10 to 15 minutes until kale and carrots are tender. Taste and add more seasoning as needed. Serve in soup bowl along with side salad of fruit or leafy greens, and whole-grain crackers or bread. Makes 6 (1-1/4 cup) servings.

• It was in July 1911 when daredevil Bobby Leach became the second person (and the first man) to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. His daring came at a cost, though; he spent six months in a hospital, recovering from injuries due to his feat. He later went on publicity tours, recounting his experience and posing with the barrel that took him over the falls. He was on one such tour in New Zealand in 1926 when he slipped on an orange peel, injuring his leg slightly. The leg became infected, necessitating an

ADD TAX RECORDS TO YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

Scanner: This is the best invention ever. Well, not really, but who wants paper or envelopes or shoe boxes? A receipt or invoice is still the best way of proving your tax deduction, by far. So, each time you make a purchase, a contribution or receive

a medical bill, note the business connection if necessary, and then scan it, and then forget it.

Smartphone: No scanner? Take a photo of the receipt instead and email it to yourself. File it away with the rest of your digital tax records. Several apps can help track your receipts.

at better, exercise more, and keep better tax records. Not a bad list. There are several acceptable IRS techniques for maintaining your records. Each has its advantages, and you might find success in using a mixture depending on your needs and your attention to detail. Credit Card: If you use a credit card for your tax related purchases such as business expenses, rental property repairs and unreimbursed employee business expenses (job-related) then you can simply jot down on the credit card statement the nature of the expense. In some cases such as OfficeMax you can throw the receipt away since the merchant and the business nature is fairly obvious. We suggest keeping it anyway. Envelopes: This is old fashioned, but still works well. Many taxpayers will label a handful of envelopes and toss receipts in each envelope depending on the purchase. Shoeboxes work too, but they are really old fashioned- then again, they might give you a good excuse to buy some more shoes.
