publisher’s note

> Spring is in the air once again and the seasonality of the weather always seems to remind us that we should enjoy our life each moment of every day. Time seems to fly by and we need to reflect on those things which are important to us, those precious moments we sometimes tend to overlook, or barely notice when we become tied up with work, or the worries brought on by stagnation in the economy. Realizing that it is difficult to overcome the obstacles which influence our lives like the economy, our job, the weather, or health related issues, we might be better served by embracing those personal joys and appreciating the little things we usually take for granted. A simple event like receiving a phone call and seeing that our husband, wife, child, or friend is on the other end should let us know that someone close is thinking about us. Engaging in friendly dialogue can be uplifting and we think everyone should allow more time for conversation with loved ones, friends, or business contacts.

our behind-the-scene assets of our staff writers, graphics design specialists, photographers, editor-in-chief and of course yours truly. All of us at the magazine thank you for your loyalty and patronage through your subscriptions over the years and appreciate your spreading the word to include your friends and neighbors, so that they may become part of our family. We know you will enjoy this issue of Orlando Style, which again has something for everyone. The guys will enjoy our timely, great article in the business section “Orlando Now.” Gals of all ages will enjoy the beautiful beachwear from locally situated Martin Capristan’s designs and from the down-under land of Australia. Also, be sure to check out the latest reporting in the restaurant section along with “What’s In and Out” in central Florida. Finally, (often imitated but never equaled) be certain to peruse our “Cool Shots” pix highlighting all the recent social events in and around our community; you might even spot yourself in one of the photos!<

Sincerely, We at Orlando Style rely on your communication with us, either by voice or email and we consider our readers and advertisers our most valuable assets. We welcome your thoughts, criticism, suggestions, and constantly work at fine tuning our product so that we may continue delivering value to you each and every month either in hard copy print or on our websites served by

Celebrity Soup

Celebrity Soup

>This may come as a shock, but bigger isn’t necessarily better. Everything from our smart phones to our dinner portions are smaller. Today, everyone is looking for ways to cut back. The world is downsizing and handbags are no exception. While our gallon-sized hobos and Army tank totes still have a very secure spot in our wardrobe, the satchel is quickly becoming an everyday contender. Between the sensible size and chic appeal, the satchel is the go-to bag of today’s most fashion-forward celebrities. The fashion paradigm has shifted by way of the satchel- the petite predecessor of the hobo. The Cross Body Satchel:

Flowerbomb, has established their seat in the fashion arena with their impeccable tailoring of both their men’s and women’s ready-to-wear lines.This spring, they extend their design range and experiment with the leather goods market with this season’s bags. The “Just In Case” is the mid-size satchel of the “Case” trifecta, which includes the “Compact Case” clutch and the large “Day Tripper Case,” all made from natural-grain calfskin leather. Through inventive design and functionality, the “Just In Case” bag has already reached cult status. Viktor & Rolf score major brownie points with the handbag’s construction, boasting ample room to stow away this season’s must-haves, you know...just in case. Valentino Lace & Straw Satchel:

::

Chloe Marcie Shoulder Satchel:

Chloe, the modern feminine French line, made famous by Brigritte Bardot and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, debuts the Marcie shoulder satchel this spring. The horse shoe design and buttery, calfskin leather oozes luxury, making the Marcie the it-bag for Rachel Bilson and Katie Holmes. The wrapped, whipstitch handle and the voluptuous curve of the lines and frame make this a timeless piece. Sleek and effortless, the Marcie wears comfortably on the shoulder and on the arm. Hermès Birkin:

Arguably the most versatile of handbag styles, the cross body satchel is the hybrid of the satchel and the messenger. Ideal for everyday use, the messenger strap can be detached for a clean, sleek look or worn across the body. This spring, Mulberry delivers this innovative design with the Alexa, named after model Alexa Chung. The Alexa has been spotted everywhere from Fifth Avenue to Sundance Film Festival. Perfect in it’s simplicity, the Alexa is on it’s way to becoming a wardrobe mainstay. Stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Charlize Theron have donned the English luxury brand. Made with soft buffalo leather, the Alexa is also available in white calf hair.

The fusion of the bag and the boudoir culminate with Valentino’s springtime sweetie, the Lace & Straw Satchel. Black lace and somber nudes dominate the Italian luxury brand’s Resort collection. These elements manifest themselves beautifully in this season’s most coveted bag. Stars such as Jennifer Love Hewitt love the lace overlay and micro woven straw detailing, that ushers in the romance of spring. Proenza Schouler Spring ‘11 Leather Satchel:

Viktor & Rolf’s “Just In Case” Bag:

This spring, Viktor & Rolf debuted the “Just In Case” satchel, a gilded-cornered bag that has caught the attention of A-listers such as Jessica Alba and recent convert, Anne Hathaway. The Amsterdam-based fashion house, known for the women’s fragrance,

Gracing the shoulders of Kate Walsh, Liv Tyler and Mary-Kate Olsen is Proenza Schouler’s spring 2011 gem, the PS1 leather satchel. Utilitarian as it is beautiful, the PS1 satchel can be worn as a messenger, and delivers serious street-style appeal. Whether they’re being photographed at the airport or shopping on Melrose, this bag is just as famous as the celebrity wearing it. It’s versatility and size makes the PS1 ideal for day or night.

You know you’ve hit it big if you have a Birkin. Named after actress Jane Birkin, this Hermès staple is the Bugatti of all luxury satchels. The secret to Birkin’s iconic status lies in its rich materials and exclusivity. At one time, Hermès boasted a six-year waiting list for the hand-sewn artisan bag. The Birkin has been made from ostrich and is lined with goatskin that matches the chosen exterior color of the bag. Ranging from $9,000 to $280,000 the Birkin is the handbag of royalty and Hollywood’s elite. Whether you carry it all or just the essentials, the satchel is the bag of the season. This spring, designers and celebrities alike are all drawn to its versatility and style. <

Between the sensible size and chic appeal, the satchel is the go-to bag of today’s most fashion-forward celebrities.

Hop a quick, 50-minute flight from Orlando to the Bahamas and check into the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino situated on a 1000’ shoreline of silica silk white sand at Cable Beach. This kid-friendly vacation oasis has it all with over 550 rooms and suites, all with private balconies providing either island or water views, with each room containing a desk and high speed internet access for those requiring some office activity during their stay. Conferences, meetings, wedding receptions and other celebratory affairs are amply serviced with over 30,000 sq. ft. of ‘Flexible Function Space,’ a massive 14,000 sq. ft. ballroom and a Rainforest Theatre, cumulatively capable of accommodating in excess of 1500 guests for almost any event conceivable. Professional convention planning managers and the finest in elegant catering ensure that your function will be smoothly successful from beginning to end. For smaller sized formal gatherings or meetings, there are twelve function rooms also available, each containing the same exceptional attention as given the larger affairs. Once settled, it’s not a bad idea to refresh with a pool dip or a swim in the private lagoon. Beach lovers can stroll on the sandy shoreline and stop for a cool, refreshing drink at the beachfront frozen beverage bar, “Da Daq Shaq,” named for its vast menu of shaved ice frozen daiquiris, a rum, lime and sweetener based cocktail. This concoction originally thought to have been invented around 1900 by a group of American mining engineers in a bar named ‘Venus’, in Santiago, Cuba. Coincidentally, there is a beach near Santiago, also named Daiquiri! Beginning to get the ‘munchies’? The Palace has nine restaurants and lounges, which compliment the huge Las Vegas style casino. Our favorites include the “Black Angus Grille,” “Moso,” the aforementioned “Da Daq Shaq” and “22 Above Lounge.” At “Black Angus,” we shared a ‘starter’ of Prime Rib Tacos, a combination of seasonally spiced shredded rib meat and cheeses Suite Bedroom wrapped in corn tortillas. Next, a “Junkyard Salad” prepared and tossed tableside containing an eclectic mix of lettuce, a variety of fresh veggies, olives, egg, fried onions and capers, enhanced with a zesty Parmesan dress-

Not to be concerned because you can choose from a vast array of Special Entrees featuring fresh Lobster, Shrimp, Crab Cakes, Grouper, Chicken, Ribs and Rack of Lamb. If you’re in the mood for Thai, Japanese or Chinese Cuisine, try the casual, family-style Asian restaurant “Moso,” on the second floor overlooking the ocean, where all dishes are prepared to be shared…a perfect setting for families or groups of friends. After a busy day of activities and a lovely dinner, seek out the “22 Above Lounge”

overlooking the Casino. Here, you can relax and enjoy sipping a favorite cocktail, specialty martini or a glass of excellent wine. Those wishing to display their dancing skills can take in the live musical entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights, beginning at 9:30 P.M. It stands to reason that no visit would be complete without making an attempt to have ‘lady luck’ shine on us and since gambling is legal here in the Bahamas, ‘action’ can be found only steps away from all the other amenities this Resort has to offer. Games of chance like Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Pai Gao Poker and of course the ‘Slots,’ offer the opportunity to have our vacations paid for. Chances are you will need

to think again because the odds are in favor of the “House” and unless one is extremely lucky, money can be lost in a flash. Still, for those that are smart enough to control their emotions (and their pocketbooks) it can be fun trying to win a few bucks at the tables without going overboard. Also, from time to time you might catch a glimpse of a famous actor or entertainer hobnobbing with the crowd, reinforcing the notion that human beings, regardless of status, are basically structured similarly. For a change of scenery, a short distance away is ‘Stuart Cove’s Aqua Adventures’, Nassau’s premier attraction offering complete water-based activities. Owned and operated by husband and wife team Stuart and

Michelle, this is the place to deep sea dive, snorkel, pilot your personal SUB (sort of like driving an underwater motorcycle), Fin Photo Record (video and digital recording of your underwater activities), and a host of other water adventures. Take the kids to Blue Lagoon Island where everyone can enjoy swimming in the calm lagoon, play volleyball, basketball, ping-pong, board games, etc. Rent a water bike or take the “Swim with the Dolphins” tour, which includes a dolphin orientation, animal training techniques and other important guidelines. Don a lifejacket and then enjoy the experience of their gentleness as you hold a dolphin in your arms as you dance, sing and frolic with these magnificent creatures.

Hold on as you are taken for a swift ride across the lagoon during the finale, referred to as the footpush! All this will be captured on video as your remembrance of a truly unforgettable experience.

I$ Organic Worth the Extra

Read more at: StyleToMe.com

health & beauty

> Organic food is one of the fastestgrowing categories in the food industry, despite the fact that it can cost more than double the price of conventional foods. But is it worth spending more when it comes to buying organic? Nutritionist Joy Bauer tells us what organic really means, what the various “organic” and “natural” food labels mean, and what organic food we should buy. Here are Bauer’s tips for organic shopping: Almost two-thirds of American consumers bought some type of organic food or beverage last year, up from about half in 2004. And they usually spend about 50 percent or 100 percent more for these organic products. But is it worth it? Yes and no. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has found that even after you wash certain fruits and vegetables, they still contain much higher levels of pesticide residue than others.This includes apples, berries, grapes, spinach, and potatoes. On the other hand, that’s not true for bananas, mangos, or corn. Here are some facts to help you decide what organic, or natural, foods you should buy: What organic means:

¨ Animals have not been treated with: antibiotics, growth hormones, or feed made from animal by-products. ¨ Animals must have been fed organic feed for at least a year. ¨ Animals must have access to the outdoors. ¨ Food hasn’t been genetically modified or irradiated. ¨ Fertilizer does not contain sewage sludge or synthetic ingredients. ¨ Produce hasn’t been contaminated with synthetic chemicals used as pesticides. What the labels mean:

¨ “100% Organic”: Product must contain 100 percent organic ingredients. ¨ “Organic”: At least 95 percent of ingredients are organically produced. ¨ “Made with Organic Ingredients”: At least 70 percent of ingredients are organic. The

::

remaining 30 percent must come from the USDA’s approved list.

Other organic foods worth considering:

¨ “Free-range” or “Free-roaming”: Misleading term applied to chicken, eggs and other meat. The animal did not necessarily spend a good portion of its life outdoors. The rule states only that outdoor access be made available for “an undetermined period each day.” U.S. government standards are weak in this area.

¨ Milk ¨ Beef ¨ Poultry

¨ “Natural” or “All Natural”: Does not mean organic. There is no standard definition for this term except with meat and poultry products. (USDA defines “natural” as not containing any artificial flavoring, colors, chemical preservatives, or synthetic ingredients). The claim is not verified. The producer or manufacturer alone decides whether to use it. The “Dirty Dozen”: Must-buy organic foods

Fruit ¨ Apples ¨ Cherries ¨ Grapes, imported (Chili) ¨ Nectarines ¨ Peaches ¨ Pears ¨ Raspberries ¨ Strawberries Vegetables

Reduce the risk of exposure to the agent believed to cause mad cow disease and minimize exposure to other potential toxins in non-organic feed. These foods contain no hormones, and antibiotics — which have been linked to increased antibacterial resistance in humans — have not been added to the food. They often cost 100 percent more than conventional products. No need to go organic with these foods:

Fruit ¨ Bananas ¨ Kiwi ¨ Mangos ¨ Papaya ¨ Pineapple Vegetables ¨ Asparagus ¨ Avocado ¨ Broccoli ¨ Cauliflower ¨ Corn ¨ Onions ¨ Peas

¨ Bell peppers ¨ Celery ¨ Potatoes ¨ Spinach

These products generally do not contain pesticide residue.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture found that even after washing, some fruits and vegetables consistently carry much higher levels of pesticide residue than others. Based on an analysis of more than 100,000 U.S. government pesticide test results, researchers at the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a research and advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C., have developed the “dirty dozen” fruits and vegetables, above, that they say you should always buy organic, if possible, because their conventionally grown counterparts tend to be laden with pesticides. They cost about 50 percent more - but are well worth the money.

Wild or farmed fish can be labeled organic, despite the presence of contaminants such as mercury and PCBs. No USDA organic certification standards for seafood — producers are allowed to make their own organic claims.

Seafood

Cosmetics Having “organic” or “natural” in its name doesn’t necessarily mean it’s safer. Only 11 percent of ingredients found in personalcare products, organic or not, have ever been screened for safety.

Managing the high cost of organic foods:

How to protect yourself from “non-organic” pesticides:

Why does organic cost more?

Produce

Growing the food is more labor-intensive. And even though organic food is a growing industry, it doesn’t have the economies of scale or government subsidies available to conventional growers.

¨ Buy fresh vegetables and fruits in season. When long storage and long-distance shipping are not required, fewer pesticides are used.

How to save money buying organic food:

¨ Comparison shop in local grocery stores. ¨ Take advantage of local farmers’ markets: Many farmers do not charge a premium. ¨ Order by mail: Products such as organic beef can be shipped nationally.

Dirty Dozen 1

¨ Trim tops and the very outer portions of celery, lettuce, cabbages, and other leafy vegetables that may contain the bulk of pesticide residues. ¨ Peel and cook when appropriate, even though some nutrients and fiber are lost in the process.

¨ Special soaps or washes are not needed and could be harmful to you, depending on their ingredients. Read the label! Cold water is perfectly fine.

¨ Trim the fat from meat, and fat and skin from poultry and fish. Residues of some pesticides concentrate in animal fat.

¨ Wait until just before preparation to wash or immerse your produce in clean water. When appropriate, scrub with a brush. Experts at the University of CaliforniaBerkeley report that this removes nearly all insects and dirt, as well as bacteria and some pesticide residues.

Vital Nutrients for a Healthy Life By: Cathleen K. Bode Credits: Flavia Robinson Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Whether the goal is maintaining a healthy lifestyle or working on how to get that killer body, keeping track of what goes in your body can be a challenge. Often times, strict diets can restrict nutrients that are essential for good health.The “right vitamins” can be your friends when consumed in the “right dosage.” Your Dr. can help you figure out what nutrients your body may be lacking through a quick blood test, and for osteoporosis, a bone density test. These vitamins can become true heroes in regards to “your” individual health.

milk, eggs, carrots, spinach and avocados, which help skin from aging and decreases dryness. It also produces healthy scalp sebum.

Daily multivitamins are not your only option. According to the Nutrition Business Journal, America consumed $9 billion in vitamins last year alone, but surprisingly enough most of the vitamins you need are found in the foods you consume everyday.

Vitamin D is one of the few vitamins that can’t be found in abundance through foods. Though sometimes seen as the bad guy for causing skin cancer, moderate exposure to sunlight is good for meeting your daily vitamin D needs. Research suggests vitamin D plays a major role in prevention of diabetes, osteoporosis and hypertension.Who would think 20-30 minutes a day under natural sunlight could do so much for your health?

Vitamin C is the longevity vitamin. Present in most citrus fruits and vegetables, this vitamin has gained a reputation for preventing the infamous cold we’d all like to avoid. Although the correlation between ingestion of vitamin C and prevention of a cold hasn’t been proven, scientists have associated it with prevention of cardiovascular disease, age-related muscular degeneration and cataracts. Vitamin A is good for hair and skin. Great sources of vitamin A can be found in meat,

A good workout can solve many problems, but what if you’re lacking the energy? Ingestion of vitamin B12 promotes good energy levels, reducing fatigue. It also helps with the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats and is required for proper digestion. You can find vitamin B12 in fish, shellfish, liver, eggs and milk.

With such a wide variety of vitamins out there, the only work on your part is exposing your body to the right amount and enjoying the benefits. Include an array of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, fat free or low fat dairy, whole grains and healthy fats such as olive oil and nuts in your daily diet to get the most of the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.<

>> ASK DR. PALCESKI

Q: I am considering getting a cos-

metic procedure done. How do I go about selecting a qualified provider?

A: This is an area that I am very

passionate about primarily because I see 2-3 patients per week that seek my help in correcting the mistakes that occur as a result of inadequately trained providers performing procedures that are outside of their scope of practice. When electing to do cosmetic procedures such as injectables or lasers, I would encourage you to seek out the expertise of either a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon. Physicians within these two specialties typically have more extensive training and expertise in performing these types of procedures than any other type of phy-

styletome.com

sician. Seeking out an appropriately trained and well credentialed Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon will help ensure good results and will minimize the likelihood of complications. One final bit of advice, beware of specials that seem to good to be true. Instead, cut corners at the grocery store not on something as important as your face. You may pay a little more for it, but I am confident that the results will be well worth it.

Q: What are your favorite skin

care lines or products? Anything you can’t live without?

A: A good skin care regimen is

like food for your skin and is vital to maintaining that healthy glow. At our office, we spent several years

hand selecting products we feel to be the best on the market. Some of my personal favorites include Vivite®, Neocutis®, and Glytone®. As for products I personally can’t live without… a great sunscreen, Retin-A, and my Clarisonic® brush. Dr. Palceski looks forward to hearing from you and will be accepting questions at drp@reflectionsdermatology.com Dr. Palceski is a Board Certified Dermatologist and Dermatologic Surgeon and is the founder of Reflections Dermatology & Center for Skin Care.

> The ethos of the Noble M600 has developed from a small team passionate about driving.  This evolved from research of the available “supercars” of which lean heavily on computer assistance.  The use of fashionable but often inefficient gear paddle shift, over assisted brakes and inopportune traction control have all become standard features of the modern day supercar. Noble Automotive thought it’s time to break the mould, feeling that this now ubiquitous “digital” driver assistance disengages and negates the driver experience and reward.  They have experienced, when turning off these devices, computer generated support can often cosmetically mask and flatter inferior chassis and handling characteristics.  Noble Automotive decided that with the introduction of the M600 it was time to “get back to basics,” to concentrate on the more “analogue” qualities of design by utilizing a principle of pure engineering integrity from the chassis up, putting the driver back in control. The philosophy behind this radical and refreshing premise is best summed by Peter Dyson, owner of Noble Automotive Limited: “Noble is a labour of love, of no compromises and of challenges fought.  The car speaks for itself, and absolutely reflects what the Team and I envision a true driver’s car should be.  It is no question uniquely “out of sync” in today’s world, one overrun with cars that cannot make up their minds as to whether they want to be a car that rewards or a car that gives hollow praise by electronically “covering” the errors.

Designed and engineered with a purity that rewards driver skill, the M600 is neither dictated to nor hindered by unnecessary computer assistance.  It puts you back in the driving seat. Put simply the Noble M600 is for those of us who love to drive....

Design is of course subjective, beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder.  However there are certain design absolutes, particularly when creating a supercar featuring such massive power and performance, which dictate, in order to have full aerodynamic and cooling efficiency certain design criteria must be met. It’s their belief that form should always follow function, there is much in the philosophy “if it looks right it probably is right.” Utilizing extensive wind tunnel testing they have strived to maintain the form to be as minimalist as possible whilst providing the ultimate aerodynamic and cooling efficiency.  Nothing is cosmetic:  every element of the shape and design is intrinsic to the effectiveness of the performance. Noble Automotive feels that the “purity” of design gives the M600 an understated purposeful gravitas that stands out in the crowd. <

Hedo Turkoglu – “I think Gilbert because he puts all kinds of colors and stuff together.”

Hedo Turkoglu – “I just pick for myself and see what I like. If I like it, I wear it.”

TXTing & Driving: Should Florida Punish Those who are ‘Distracted’? By: Mark NeJame, with contribution by David Jancha an associate with NeJame Law (NeJame, LaFay, Jancha, Ahmed, Barker, & Joshi, P.A.) Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> I think many of us will admit that we have used cell phones to either: talk, text, or email while driving. I also believe we can admit that it can be very distracting! However, in today’s technological age and from a business perspective, immediate access to information is essential to running an efficient and effective business. Likewise, from an attorney’s prospective; I have seen firsthand the damage that can be caused to not only property, but also individuals and their families by distracted drivers. Whether the distraction is caused by a cell phone, a GPS device, reading a book, watching a DVD, personal grooming, application of ‘makeup’, misbehaving children, consuming food, or even alcohol or drugs; the results can be devastating if not deadly. Some of our State Representatives have requested legislation to address the issue of ‘texting and driving.’ (For example, Senate Bill 158). There are clearly a myriad of approaches that can be considered to address the issue: a total cell phone ban while driving; a law limiting a driver’s use of cell phones and messaging devices (require ‘hands-free’ devices); or a total ban on texting but not outlawing phone calls by drivers’ are just a few options.

styletome.com

What must be determined is how to address ‘distractions.’ Should punishment be criminal and subject the offender to jail and fines? Or if a law is imposed should it be a nonmoving traffic violation with a fine? Or should it be a moving traffic violation with a fine and points assessed against a driver’s license? If a law is passed, two concerns arise. First, would the law create yet another basis for a traffic stop which puts both the driver and officer at risk? According to the Florida Highway Patrol in conjunction with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, during a period from 1996 to 2000, motorists in Florida crashed into working law enforcement vehicles that were either stopped or parked along Florida roadways 1,793 times, resulting in five deaths and 419 injuries. We have all seen the “MOVE OVER LAW” signs on the highway; but we have also seen that very few people actually “move over.” This brings me to the second concern: Would the law likely have any deterrence? Florida Statute 316.1936 makes it a noncriminal moving traffic violation for any driver or passenger to possess or consume an open container of an alcoholic beverage in a motor vehicle operated in the State. Un-

fortunately, many drivers continue to be accused of driving under the influence. It can be argued that the open container law was, at least in part, enacted to deter impaired drivers. In my experience, there seem to be vast number of people still being accused of DUIs in the Great State of Florida. Some people claim they drive and text without even taking their eyes off the road. Many State and private agencies have policies in effect to deter or restrict their employees from distractions such as texting. So what is the solution? I think the only simple answer is: If you’re going to use your phone to call or text (or be distracted in any way); do the right thing and pull over or into a parking lot. This is the only guaranteed approach that will work. Drive safe Orlando! <

Orlando Now

> Orlando is a world-renowned brand that puts smiles on the faces of families and creates excitement for all ages. In 2010, we decided that our company, the Orlando/ Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Inc. (Orlando/Orange County CVB), needed a new identity; one that reflected our number one goal; to bring business and leisure travelers to Orlando. On December 17, during our 2010 Annual Meeting we announced that we changed our name to Visit Orlando. It is the job of our team to showcase our great destination to consumers. More than 46 million came in 2009 to experience all that Orlando has to offer. Our new name – Visit Orlando – reflects our organization’s mission and strategic focus of increasing overnight leisure and business visitation to the destination through worldwide sales and marketing initiatives. The change also reflects a shift within destination marketing organizations to adopt simpler, more relevant names for a global audience.

George Aguel, past chairman of Visit Orlando and Paul Tang, chairman of Visit Orlando announced the name change at the Annual Meeting in December.

Introducing Visit Orlando By: Gary C. Sain President and CEO, Visit Orlando Read more at: StyleToMe.com

styletome.com

The bottom line is that ‘CVB’ doesn’t have the same recognition and meaning as it once did in today’s lexicon. It doesn’t reflect the vibrancy of the Orlando experience or the focus of the organization. To ensure our ongoing global success, we wanted a 21st century name that would be easy to remember and enunciate, and ultimately communicate the desired action we hope consumers, meeting professionals and meeting attendees take – to visit Orlando. Extensive research was conducted through focus groups and quantitative research with consumers, travel professionals and meeting professionals to ensure that Visit Orlando would convey a positive message for the

destination and be understood throughout the world. The new name also positions the company to have one name globally. Along with a new name, a new company logo is currently being designed and will be unveiled soon. Additionally, a newly updated Orlando logo will be unveiled. So what does this mean for Orlando residents? We hope that residents and visitors will better understand the focus of the organization and what we do on a daily basis. Ultimately, Visit Orlando is the communities’ destination marketing organization. We work for the benefit of our community, partners and funding partners. We are proud to represent the number one destination in Orlando and an industry that supports more than 400,000 jobs. And for every 85 incremental visitors, we create one new job. In addition, in March we’ll launch a new version of our website VisitOrlando.com. This new website has greater information and tools for visitors, but it’s also a wonderful resource for residents. I encourage you to check out the new site and see what great amenities for residents the hospitality industry has created.You may be surprised by all the things there are to do right in your own backyard.

Spotlight on the law

> Frank Hamner never thought about being a lawyer growing up. As a child, his parents took him camping in state and national parks all over the country, prompting such a love for the outdoors that he always wanted to be a park ranger. Even before graduating from high school, he answered his call for adventure by enlisting in the United States Navy.After an exemplary enlisted career, Frank was chosen for a commissioning program available to only the top 5% of all enlisted personnel. He attended Auburn University, obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and embarking on a Naval career that would span some 22 years.

It was only when he left active duty that he began looking for a second career. By this time, he had married a local Winter Park girl, Lauren Frey, and was heavily influenced by his admiration for her father, Lou, to follow in his footsteps and seek a law degree. Graduating in 1995 from the University of Florida College of Law, he was a Presidential Scholar, Trial Team Outstanding Graduate and Attorney General of the Student Honor Court. In the sixteen years since, Frank honed his skills as a litigator at one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest and most prestigious law firms where he represented clients like Westinghouse and Lexmark in trials in both state and federal court, then starting his own practice, Frank A. Hamner, P.A. AVÂŽ rated by Martindale-Hubbell, he is listed in their Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and has been featured in the Orlando Business Journal, Florida Trend magazine and Orlando Home and Leisure magazine as a top litigation lawyer.

Attorney Frank Hamner Read more at: StyleToMe.com

styletome.com

Frank focuses his practice on two fronts: a top shelf litigation practice focused on commercial and construction litigation and serving as in-house counsel to the Holler family, one of the pillars of the central Florida community, for their real estate and automotive dealership operations. He has teamed up with Attorney Brad Hester to further provide the highest level of real estate services to his clients in both the commercial and residential markets. In his limited spare time, he enjoys hunting and fishing and spending time with his wife and five daughters. Frank takes great pride in his practice and looks forward to helping his clients utilize his experience and ability to navigate their way to the best possible, and most cost effective, resolution of their case.<

> The IRS & Tax Law by Mark L. Horwitz

> The IRS contends that the tax system is voluntary however, it prosecutes those who intentionally do not pay taxes.

investigators routinely plan the questions after doing a preliminary investigation. Often the unannounced visit will result in an interview without the benefit of having an attorney present.

An IRS criminal investigator is required to identify himself when interviewing a person under criminal investigation and to tell that person of their right to have an attorney present and that anything said may be used in a criminal case.

The Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz - A Professional Association 17 E. Pine St. Orlando, FL 32801 407-843-7733 www.mlhorwitzlaw.com

Any mistake or mis-recollection of facts can be interpreted as an intentional false statement which will factor prominently in the government’s contention that the taxpayer acted willfully to evade tax laws. Mistakes or perceived lies increase the chance of criminal prosecution.

While the amount of tax due is part of a criminal investigation, it is not the primary factor. The criminal investigator’s primary purpose is to determine if criminal charges can be filed.

When an individual speaks with an investigator the following may happen: the person may make a mistake when questioned about events that occurred years previously; the investigator may not understand the answers correctly or may make a mistake in taking

A person often learns of a criminal tax investigation when investigators appear without an appointment for an interview. The

notes; or on rare occasions, an investigator may falsify the report. It is interesting to note that the IRS investigators do not usually record the interviews. While there may be various reasons for not recording an interview, one reason is that at a trial, a defendant will be faced with what the investigator claims was said, rather than what was actually said and recorded. The law recognizes that anyone dealing with the IRS has the right to an attorney. Dealing directly with the IRS without a lawyer experienced in criminal tax matters poses significant risks that can result in the increased likelihood of criminal charges and may increase the risk of losing one’s freedom.<

City News

> There’s a certain wonderful day in February that everyone spends with his or her sweetheart. And this year was the first in a while that I had someone special at home cooking dinner for me. Readers of this column know, a romantic evening at home is a rarity for someone like me. Orlando has so many great events and parties that I barely have time to change my clothes before the next big thing!

Grand Opening of 180 Grey Goose Lounge

In Case You Missed It Style Events, News & Gossip from around the city By: Alex Holland Read more at: StyleToMe.com

If you like bars with great views of downtown and signature cocktails, you would have loved the grand opening party for the 180 Grey Goose lounge on February 4th. Located on the rooftop of the Amway Center, this new lounge offers a new kind of luxury that I will be sure to take advantage of the next time that I attend an Orlando Magic game! The Bridges of Light Foundation is an incredible charity that raises money to benefit children who have experienced serious hardships. Working with Bridges of Light Foundation and the PACE Center for Girls, which provides women with better opportunities for education and training, Boyz II Men put on an incredible sold-out concert at Heat Tandoor & Lounge in downtown Orlando. Heat is an ultra-modern lounge with great drinks and super tasty food, so this event soldout fast, and for such a good cause! I’m a sucker for 90s hits, and Sugar Ray’s “Fly” is no exception. I remember bobbing my head along with my girlfriends when ‘Fly’ was on all of our play lists. Lucky for us, Sugar Ray performed at Velvet Sessions on the 23rd of February. I know that I talk about Velvet Sessions pretty often, but if you haven’t been, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Sessions is practically an Orlando institution, with its relaxed and intimate counter-approach to the typical rock show.

styletome.com

Speaking of awesome things to do in Orlando, lets talk for a minute about Portofino Bay’s Harbor Nights Romantico. Think wine, food, chocolate and arias – all in a gorgeous Italian setting. But even if you couldn’t make it out on the 18th for Harbor Nights Romantico, you should just check out Portofino Bay on ANY night. Close your eyes while you’re eating a bite of lasagna from BICE, and you’ll swear that you were in Italy. Classic and modern meet at the Festivals of Speed’s upcoming event at the Mission Inn Resort & Club from March 4th to the 6th. The Festivals of Speed puts together phenomenal events. They always have a ton of gorgeous luxury cars, which is why they’re telling people to come out and see all of the ‘rolling sculptures’. And if you’re not a car fanatic, you’ll still have a great time, enjoying the fine dining, golf, and skeet shooting. One other event in March that I want to mention is the Baterbys 2011 Winter Auction. This auction will be a mix of pieces from globally renowned artists and locals who are selling their art on consignment. Baterbys has good taste, so if you’re an art lover, you can expect a great opportunity to bid on some beautiful pieces. As usual, February is yet another month in Orlando that turned out to be a blast. Just tell the weather to warm it up a little though, it got a little too cold this past month – there were a few days when I had no choice but to put on a long-sleeve shirt! See you next month! < Know of a not-to-be-missed event? Do Tell!

> Best Cellars: 2011 promises to be a big year for Soave in the US BY: Cathleen K. Bode

takes place in large casks, tonneaux and steel. These wines are then artfully blended before bottling.The resulting wine is balanced with exotic stone fruit flavors and subtle, honeyed notes of marzipan. “I believe in the potential of Garganega,” says Antonio Fattori, “and I have always had the desire to create and experiment in an effort to unite scientific method and innovation with our historic traditions. We are dedicated to the search for more vibrant and attractive wines with the characteristic aromas and body of Soave.” In addition to Fattori, ten other Soave Consortium members were awarded various recognitions, indicating the increasing respect for and interest in Soave on the international level, particularly in England and the United States.

> In London, Antonio Fattori proudly accepted the award for best single varietal wine under £10 at Decanter’s World Wine Awards 2010. His 2008 Fattori Motto Piane Soave DOC beat out 11,000 entries from throughout the world for the honor. The Fattori winery was established in 1888 in Terrossa on the hills east of Verona. Its production is rooted in the quest to strike an ideal balance between a respect for tradition and a respect for innovation.

This award is the culmination of generations of experience and long-term investments in new vineyards, the revitalization of old vineyards, winery equipment and low-temperature fermentation techniques. The Garganega destined for Motto Piane is grown at 300 meters above sea level in the volcanic soils of Monte Calvarina. The grapes are dried for a month before pressing to concentrate Garganega’s unique characteristics. Separated into three lots, fermentation

“We’re getting great recognition in the American press and more American wine drinkers are discovering the versatility, value and great taste of our Soave wines,” says Soave Consortium President Arturo Stocchetti. “These numerous awards give us a great sense of satisfaction in the continual efforts of Soave producers and showcases the fruits of decisions implemented by the consortium in the quest for quality.” <

New Book ‘The Plan’ Reveals Proven Method for Achieving Personal, Professional and Financial Success

styletome.com

> It’s official - money alone doesn’t buy happiness. A global Gallup poll found that, while life satisfaction rises with personal income, positive feelings are more strongly associated with other factors like feeling respected, having autonomy and social support, and working at a fulfilling job. But, just how does one achieve these seemingly disparate goals and be genuinely happy? The answer is revealed in “The Plan” (paperback, $14.95 U.S.) – a precision how-to manual detailing specific steps required to achieve personal balance, career success and financial strength. Co-authored by international business life coach John M. McKee and esteemed business consultant Helen Latimer, The Plan shows readers how to employ the same time-tested techniques used for decades

by many of the most successful individuals, celebrities, and business organizations around the globe. “There is a rampant misconception that being ‘successful’ will also lead one to be ‘satisfied,” said McKee. “While most can articulate what makes them feel successful, like their jobs, how much money they make or have, or the material possessions they own, it’s rare when someone will boast about how joyful they feel about their job or the relationships in their life. Many will lament that, although they ‘make a nice living,’ they did not follow aspirations they had as a child or young adult, or that they dread getting ‘back to the grind’ on Mondays. This book changes all of that, helping readers achieve their heartfelt goals and experience true satisfaction in all facets of

their life, irrespective of current circumstances.” In addition to enlightening anecdotes and well-honed insights based on both authors’ personal and professional experiences, The Plan includes systematic worksheets, tools and exercises that help readers uncover and eliminate unproductive behaviors, and discern authentic feelings about their current life – the good, the bad and the ugly. The Plan is available in select bookstores throughout the North America and the United Kingdom, or online at ThePlanSite. com, www.JohnMMcKee.com www.Amazon.com, www.BarnesandNoble.com and www.Chapters.Indigo.ca.<

One of the reasons the Wicked musical has captivated audiences worldwide is that it is a Wizard of Oz prequel story, adapted and reinvented from Gregory Maguire’s novel about a green woman coming of age in Oz. But more than that, it’s a moving tale of two witches and a dazzling green-themed spectacle. The official blurb in press releases states: “Winner of 26 major awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards, Wicked is the untold story of the witches of Oz.

Don‘t Miss the beat

> Advancing a career built on a long list of number one hits, Britney Spears is introducing her much-anticipated seventh album “Femme Fatale” on March 15th. The new album comes two years after the release of her last, “Circus” and her grandiose world tour. Exclusively available as a digital download on the iTunes store, “Hold it Against Me,” the album’s first single has charted the highest number of radio plays in a single day, reassuring doubters of the global superstar’s comeback that she’s here to stay.

Femme Fatale By: Cathleen K. Bode Credits: Flavia Robinson Read more at: StyleToMe.com

Spears herself described the new album as “sexy, strong, dangerous, mysterious, cool and confident” and she added “I’ve poured my heart and soul into this album over the last two years and put everything I have into it.” Masterminds in the pop music industry, Dr. Luke and Max Martin, served as the project’s executive producers. “Femme Fatale” will be released by Jive Records and envisioned an electronic and grimier sound for the “Circus’s” follow-up. A heavy social media campaign has created a real frenzy among the pop star’s fans over the release of the album’s cover and music video debut shot by Jonas Åkerlund. The video is “a sexy, edgy dance piece showing Britney at peak form and ability” as stated on a sales-solicitation sheet created by her label. Over the course of a 14-year striking solo career she has experienced many highs and lows, between professional achievements and personal struggles. Including having five No 1 debut albums and the unforgettable

scene of Spears shaving her own head, while going in and out of rehab facilities. But she seems to have put it all behind her, reached stability and taking the driver seat of her own life. After riding a dangerous roller coaster there and back, “Femme Fatale” is a fitting name that translates into female empowerment, taking charge, confidence, and sex appeal. She uses her fans as a main source of inspiration “this album is for you, my fans, who have always supported me and have stuck by me every step of the way! I love you all!” said Spears. At 29 years old and mother of two little boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James, with 29 top 40 hits on record, Spears won the 2008 Video of the Year VMA awards for “Piece of Me,” marking the return to the top of her game. Since then fans have been able to enjoy many other hits from their pop idol, including “Womanizer,” “3,” and “If you Seek Amy.” Her almost year long world tour “Circus Starring Britney Spears” which she embarked on in 2009 had a total gross of $131.8 million. She performed across the US, Australia, Canada and Europe. Apart from entertaining, Britney’s business side recently launched a new addition called Radiance to her collection of fragrances as well as a clothing line with Candie’s for Kohl’s. With so many amazing happenings in her career, it’s hard to predict what’s next!<

So! Has your Sun Sign at Birth Really Changed? By: Dikki-Jo Mullen, Astrologer & Parapsychologist For more info email Dikki-Jo Mullen at: skymaiden@juno.com Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Astronomer Parke Kunkle of the Minnesota Planetarium has been in a state of shock during the second week of January 2011, a recent newspaper report states. So have the many professional astrologers around the world. Kunkle upended what many who follow astrology knew about their birth signs when he announced to the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the stars are no longer aligned in the heavens as they were 5000 years ago. Major news networks picked up on this along with every TV talk show and newscast in the country, and in most of the world has been abuzz. Astrologers have been perplexed, bemused and amused at the volume of response and many questions this has generated. Kunkle is glad to have people noticing the stars he says. The general consensus among astrologers of course is that this is invalid and hardly a surprise. Every so often there has been a similar news flash saying that astrology as we all practice it has changed. We can‘t be the signs we always thought we were anymore. The Sun Sign (familiar birth signs) has changed to

the one preceding it and/or the Zodiac has been invaded, perhaps by Cetus the Whale or Orphicus the Serpent Slayer. Like the Wheel of the Year, the solstices and equinoxes in season shocking headlines create waves for a few days. Then suddenly, they fade, becoming yesterday‘s news for another decade or so. Is there any real problem here? Well, not in this stargazer’s opinion. Consider this … the moment your life began, that place and time in the cosmos when you took your first breath, is when your horoscope is calculated. It hasn’t changed. Actually in the pattern of the seasons, the astrological calendar that oversees the flow of life, nothing has changed. We can however look at the sky picture from different perspectives, there are numerous zodiacs used to chart the heavenly wisdom, which have been developed by different cultures around the world. Has Your Sun Sign Really Become Different?


horoscope

Sun Sign or popular astrology, like we use in the magazine columns uses the Tropical Zodiac, based on the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, the midsummer and midwinter solstice points. Yes, the first degree of the sign Aries has gradually shifted backward a fraction each year against the starry backdrop of deep space and the constellations in the sky. This effect is called the precession of the equinoxes. The length of time required for the Earth to swing its axis in a full circle backward through the zodiac is a period of about 26,000 years. So each of the world ages takes about 2000 years or a little more to move around the Galactic Center of The Milky Way. This Great Age Circle is illustrated as we refer to the end of the Age of Pisces, which began, with the rise of Christianity. We are now beginning of the Age of Aquarius. Metaphysical and magical people will find this concept familiar. Is this a source of concern about the validity of astrology? Well, I wouldn’t think it is. Human nature (Yes, that‘s you!) is about

who you are and the external world doesn‘t change that essence of the essential self. There are diverse opinions about the zodiac. Where do we draw and measure the signs/constellations? If, like most spiritualists, you are in tune with the summer and winter solstices as well as the spring and autumn equinoxes then you can breath a sigh of relief. The Zodiac cycle starts with the springtime and Aries. What you read in astrology columns and books will relate to you and your life and character. In India there is a type of astrology called sidereal astrology, which does allow for the shifting vernal point in the Great Year. There is about a 23 to 24 degree difference, with some controversy as to how this is calculated, from the familiar tropical zodiac. This is called the Vedic Zodiac. On some level both zodiacs will work, the life style and philosophy of the seeker can be a deciding factor. Try subtracting 24 degrees from each placement in your natal chart to see if the chart seems to have more clarity for you, then go from there.

Meanwhile there is no need to mess up the beautiful pieces of the cosmic pie by awkwardly inserting an Orphicus, a (shudder) Serpent Slayer, into the line up, creating a division of 13. Who knows, it might even be unlucky! Auriga The Spider and Centus the Whale are other constellations hovering nearby. Perhaps they’ll get jealous and each wants a chunk of the celestial pie too. No, I feel comfortable with the classical twelve signs of the year. In harmony with the seasons of our lives, each watching over the yearly rising of buds and falling of leaves, imparting wisdom to guide humankind just as they have for the past five thousand years. <

Mercury enters your birth sign on the 9th. Plans to travel will be finalized. Select a variety of mix and match separates for beachwear. You’ll want to change your look often. Bright rose is your love and luck color for early springtime. Sort through your maps and magazines.

This will be an excellent conversation piece as well as serving as a source for ideas and inspiration about the heights you are about to achieve. Lucky days: 23

Venus brightens your career sector most of the month. Accept invitations from co workers, new loyalties are strengthened. Business and pleasure combine with élan right now. Redecorate your home office, display trophies, certificates of achievement and framed thank you notes or cards of congratulation. This will encourage you to keep moving forward. A pale lime green straw hat is the perfect accessory for the beach, protecting you from the Sun as well as adding a note of mysterious elegance. Add a pair of deeper green sunglasses and head to your favorite ocean front party spot on the 17th. Lucky days: 10, 17, 27

A strong Mars aspect attracts you to competitive situations. Decorate a patio or recreation area with sports memorabilia or adventure photos.

Consider a framed photo of a medieval cathedral. Add a stained glass window during home renovations. Install it so that the bright colors of the rising or setting sun illuminate your surroundings. Lucky days: 3, 13, 21

Neptune is completing an opposition to your birth sign. Others are elusive and mysterious, read between the lines to discern where they are coming from. Be wary of advice if it clashes with your own sense of what’s best. Follow your personal sense of style, not the fashion pace set by friends. Mirrors are the ideal new purchase for your home now. Use Feng Shui guidelines to place them so that they reflect light into dark corners, especially in the northern portion of your home. Small twinkle lights draped on a plant or in an out of the way nook add dimension. Lucky days: 15, 24, 25

Early in the month several planets oppose you, including Mercury. Associates can be a bit uncooperative. Negotiate with others and listen carefully.

Swim wear in periwinkle blue with silver beads would be perfect to take along on a Full Moon weekend cruise. Look in an out of the way gift shop for collectible antique masks to decorate your foyer. Looking for truth beneath surface appearances is a theme in your life now. Lucky days: 10, 19, 27

Worries and pressures are lessening a bit, as serious and sober Saturn has turned retrograde in your birth sign.This offers some peace and respite from the responsibilities which have weighed heavily early in the year. You are thinking about time and how to manage it. Invest in a novel clock, perhaps one with chimes or an interesting mechanism. Add a mini coconut palm tree in a brightly decorated terra cotta container to your patio. Coconuts are sacred to Venus, your ruling planet and will bring you good fortune. Fragrances are powerful and healing now. Add an aroma therapy diffuser to your home or work place. Lucky days: 2, 20, 28

Your creativity is at a peak, a stellium of planets is gathering in your 5th house of hobbies and artistry. An avocation can become a new career. Express yourself. How about grouping a display of antique musical instruments in your den? Water signs are involved, so you would also enjoy assembling an aquarium or adding a seascape to your home. Add a basket of shells and sea glass which you collected while vacationing in Martinique. Deep coral is an excellent color choice for new resort and beachwear. Lucky days: 6, 22, 31

Drift and dream early in the month. Jot down ideas and impressions about the future. You might require extra sleep. Once spring begins on the 20th everything changes and your energy level will sky rocket. It will be easier to get projects underway. A faux animal print (what about zebra?) beach cover up would be a good choice. Add a khaki safari style hat with a band of matching fabric. A new exercise area for your pampered pets is a priority. You’ll want your furry or feathered friends to be safe, yet be able to enjoy some sun and fresh air as the last of the winter’s chill vanishes. Lucky days: 6, 15, 24
