By Larry Blustein In this trying economy, we are all doing everything possible to make ends meet. In addition, we are starting to find other avenues to generate our income. If you happen to be a collector - of any kind you will be happy to know that those comic books, baseball cards and sports programs are indeed still holding value. –––––––––––––––––––––– COLLECTING, Page 8A

Last Sunday, the Gold Coast Coin Club, which makes a monthly stop at Mardi Gras Casino with numerous club members and vendors, was a bit of reality when it comes to collecting.

Virtuoso Misha Dacic The excuses stop now opens Miami International at Steel Edge CrossFit Piano Festival on Nov. 17 • The Festival kicks off the Sundays at Five series of four salon-style programs at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center AVENTURA - A few weeks before his upcoming performance, the Miami International Piano Festival caught up with Misha Dacic who is back in Miami after several months of concerts in Europe.

This highly anticipated performance by Misha Dacic will also open the 17th annual Season of the Miami International Piano Festival.

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that develops a person in multiple facets of fitness. It does not focus on just one thing – such a just running or just strength training.

“The one thing that I wanted everyone to know from the start is there are so many levels of this workout. We have men, women, law enforcement professionals and housewives taking our classes throughout the week. Intimidation is never an issue here. It’s all about getting in the best shape possible at your own pace.” EDWARD RAMIREZ OWNER, STEEL EDGE CROSSFIT

One that would not only teach the tremendous principles of a CrossFit workout, but give everyone the chance to learn and see the results. Today, Ramirez runs, teaches and coaches Steel Edge CrossFit in North Miami-Dade. Located right off I-95 and Ives Dairy Road, the opportunity to come and get that complete workout minutes from your home is what Ramirez was after when he opened. “The one thing that I wanted everyone to know from the start is there are so many levels of this workout,” Ramirez explained. “We have men, women, law enforcement professionals and housewives taking our classes

WHAT IS CROSSFIT AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that develops a person in multiple facets of fitness. It does not focus on just one thing – such a just running or just strength training. What Steel Edge CrossFit emphasizes is preparing a person physically to overcome any obstacle, and for that reason, they train 10 domains of fitness. “There’s Balance, Coordination, Agility, Power, Strength, Flexibility, Speed, Accuracy, Endurance, and Stamina,” Ramirez pointed out. “We achieve those goals by combining different modalities, such as running, jumping (ply-

ometrics), weightlifting, kettlebell lifiting, rowing, climbing, gymnastics (body weight movements).” They apply these modalities at the highest intensity the individual can provide safely. This will then get you extremely physically fit and you will feel and look great! Regardless of your level of fitness, the Steel Edge CrossFit program is designed to fit your needs. Their staff has the training and experience to scale all the workouts and movements to your level of fitness. The programming is designed to continually and progressively make you better. But don’t be fooled, regardless of where you come from, you will be challenged! Intensity is the key to results, and you will achieve them!

tary circles and slowly spread to the wider population and is now rapidly growing in the United States. Athletes traditionally compete in The Jerk/Snatch Biathlon and/or the Long Cycle (Clean and Jerk). In Kettlebell Sport, every athlete competes in a division according to body weight, kettlebell weight, age, and sex. The objective of each event is to complete as many repetitions as possible of the lift within a ten-minute period without letting the kettlebell down on the platform. To accomplish this feat the athlete requires a tremendous level of endurance and strength, both physically and especially mentally. Also, athletes work under tremendous stress while remaining calm and even quiet in order to focus on technical precision, breath control, and energy conservation. Like Olympic lifting, Kettlebell Sport has many benefits to increasing muscular and neurological adaptation by addressing many of the fitness domains. It is also functional, since it

KETTLEBELL SPORT requires multi-joint movement and core stabilization to accomplish each lift. “We are the only CrossFit facility that I know of that offers Kettlebell Sport,” Ramirez said. “This gives us a huge advantage because it is one of the toughest workouts you will get. I can 100 percent guarantee that.” CLASS SCHEDULE Every day from 6 a.m. until the late hours of the evening, there are classes going on – at

When it comes to water, it’s a major concern for everyone HALLANDALE BEACH - This past Tuesday I was honored to speak at The Global Summit On Water in Washington. Over the past years I have served on the Mayors Water Council and have been asked to serve on the Broward County Water Task Force. Water and the cost of treating water continues to a major issue in our city and around the world. The following is the first portion of my address. It is an honor to be here to address the Global Water Summit attendees. I want to extend a warm thanks to Secretary General

Samantha Yates for her keen ability to herd a group of mayors to one place to talk about a glamorous topic “water” you are laughing but I heard it is the new gold isn’t it? We have been asked to talk about our local perspective on water and how we are facing many water issues combined with a weak economy. I am of the believe that while we deliver water on the local level it is not local at all it is Global, National and regional. I am one of the most fortunate Mayors here today. Not because I am the only woman Mayor on the panel. Because I live in the

great state of Florida. It is truly a paradise. Great weather year round. We used to be one of the coastal states everyone said they did not want to move to because of hurricanes, but global warming in my opinion has changed that. It does not mean we are not always preparing for the worse, we are used to that. Living in Paradise does come with a price tag and the cost to protect treat and deliver water is getting more and more experience. Florida is surrounded by water, east, west, north, south and even underground. We have wonderful springs,

• Living in Paradise does come with a price tag and the cost to protect treat and deliver water is getting more and more experience multiple aquifers and a national treasure, the Everglades. I have been involved with water issues since I became an elected official over 14 years ago. I like to joke that I gave up my Woman’s Day magazine for Water and Underground Infrastructure Journals. Mayors are generalists. We need to know about many issues. Water, waste water and storm water being some of those issues. What I would like to do is start at the 60,000

Popular Classic Winner Mucho Macho Man To Parade Saturday at Gulfstream Park • The first 2,000 fans who purchase a Gulfstream Park program will receive a free Mucho Macho Man t-shirt Mucho Macho Man, the popular winner of the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), will be paraded Saturday, Nov. 9 at Gulfstream Park during the inaugural running of the $1 million Sunshine Millions Preview Day. Mucho Macho Man, who has wintered at Gulfstream the past three years and won the 2012 Sunshine Millions Classic and Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2), was scheduled to arrive Wednesday from California, where he won the Breeders’ Cup Classic Saturday by a nose. Mucho Macho Man will be brought to the saddling enclosure and walking ring with the horses entered in the $150,000 Classic Preview race at approximately 2:30 p.m. Fans will be able to take pictures of the Horse of the Year candidate while he circles the walking ring. The first 2,000 fans who purchase a Gulfstream Park program will receive a free Mucho Macho Man t-shirt while supplies last. Mucho Macho Man, born in 2008 in Florida, will appear on a day Gulfstream will highlight Floridabred Thoroughbreds. The $1 million Sunshine Millions Preview Day will be restricted to Thoroughbreds born in Florida. Four of the races will highlight 2-year-olds and future stars of the sport.

foot level and work my way down to my city. Our water starts out north and travels south or it is found deep within the Floridian and Biscayne aquifers. On the state level, Florida is in the midst of a renewed water war with Georgia that is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The fight is over Georgia refusing to share the waters that flow between that states that is adversely impacting wildlife and Florida’s valuable Oyster fishery. We just resolved a long standing State Issue over Nutrient Criteria. With cooperation between the EPA and State DEP, the state was able to promelgated standards to allow our cities to plan for the phasing out of ocean outfalls. This goal alone will be costing our county citizens’ millions of dollars in treatment costs. I am not familiar with the north community costs but when we first started the cost would be upward to 100 dollars a month per household. We are still working on the plan that I will touch on later to address this issue. The state also has been working to save the Everglades. This has been ongoing and stifled the economy. In 2014, voters will be

asked to pass that a constitutional amendment to insure a percent of document stamp dollars are allocated for everglades restoration and water related water projects. On the regional Level, I have served on the Broward Counties Water Task Force that has been addressing multiple issues. The biggest project to date, is what is called the C51 reservoir. This project will encompass converting a rock quarry into a large holding field for storm water drainage. The water will be preserved for parts of Palm Beach and Broward Counties for future potable water needs. Currently, the governance finance committee of which I serve on has approved a funding feasibility study for the project. All these issues have a direct and indirect impact on our city. Next week I will share my continued remarks. As always please fell free to contact me with your questions, concerns and ideas to make our city a better place.

Register for Free High Water Usage Notification Program HOLLYWOOD - The City of Hollywood offers a free service to notify customers when high water usage is detected. The program is aimed at helping residents determine whether increased water consumption is due to actual water usage (filling a pool, having house guests, watering new landscape) or an undetected leak.

The program will notify customers when water use seems to be abnormally high and provide useful information that could benefit the customer and promote water conservation. The customer will receive an e-mail if there appears to be an unusual spike in their water consumption. The e-mail notifica-

Collecting From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––––– But if you are looking for something beyond value - gold, silver, coin and paper money collecting has not lost any value during a period where real estate has not been so hot. Last Sunday, the Gold Coast Coin Club, which makes a monthly stop at Mardi Gras Casino with numerous club members and vendors, was a bit of reality when it comes to collecting. Bill Sanders and Greg Wagner have done more to promote the club and its many valued members. They not only have watched the popularity of these shows over the past year, but the demand has now increased to having two shows each month - one in Fort Lauderdale as well. Sanders handles all the show publicity and has found that the interest has picked up. For someone who has been collecting since the age of 11, it is certainly no surprise. "You would really be surprised with the interest that has been shown in collecting," Sanders said. "Since we have added gold buyers, you could see the level of interest pick up." Wagner, like Sanders, has been collecting since the age of 11. He has an extensive collection and looks to al-

ways get something rare. At shows like the one at Mardi Gras, the flow of collectors has been impressive since moving to the facility in the past year. While the monthly events are labeled as a "Coin, Currency and Collectible Show”, the events go beyond that. Ralph Sylvestri was doing his first show this past weekend. What he has come up with is something that really sells. Always struck by the glitter and exciting world of casinos, Sylvestri parlayed his passion for collecting casino chips into an art form. His shadow box displays are arranged with casino chips from the Dunes, Sahara, Caesar's Palace and many other high-profile gaming establishments in Las Vegas, Atlantic City.

Mardi Gras Casino Holds Thanksgiving Food Drive plus Pet Food Drive This Thanksgiving, Mardi Gras Casino has partnered with both Feeding South Florida and Broward County Animal Care in support of those in need along with their pets by holding a food drive. Now through November 24th, Players’ Club members who bring in four food items will receive $5 bonus play. Acceptable items include: Boxed potatoes, boxed stuffing, canned corn, canned green beans, canned cranberry sauce, canned ham/corned beef, canned gravy, and non-perishable dessert. For pets, items include dog/cat food or treats, cat litter. “Sharing and providing for those less fortunate should be a year-round habit, however, Thanksgiving is the traditional beginning of the holiday season when we truly want everyone to be blessed with a bountiful table for their family and friends, including the four-footed ones,” said Cathy Reside, Mardi Gras Casino Chief Operating Executive. “I hope our Community will support our food drive along with our family of employees and loyal guests,” she added. Feeding South Florida’s mission is to end hunger in South Florida by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts, and transforming lives through innovative programming and education. The mission of Animal Care and Adoption Division is to provide shelter for lost and surrendered animals and promote successful adoptions that enhance the lives of companion animals and their humans.

this unique form of collectible," Sylvestri explained. "I take the chips and arrange them in a case with cards, dice or whatever is associated with table gaming and the chips." Sylvestri was bowled over by the response, selling three of his masterpieces early in the morning. Collectible shows of any kind can not only bring out the "hardcore" collector, but also attract some that are new to all of this. "This is the second show I have been to here at Mardi Gras and I will tell you that I am indeed impressed," said Mark Wallenstein of Hollywood. "I brought my sons up here last time and they really liked many of the coins. We came back today to see if we could further our collection." Getting youngsters interested in collecting at an early age is what inspired the family of the late Richard White to make collectible quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies available at low prices to the youngsters to begin their collection.

"That is the kind of thing that makes this such a special event," Cathy Losure of Dania Beach explained. "I came here with my two grandchildren to see what this was all about and they began to really take a liking to it."

ARSHT CENTER AND FLORIDA GRAND OPERA OPENS SEASON WITH THE PREMIERE OF “MORNING BECOMES ELECTRA”: “Morning Becomes Electra,” a contemporary opera, was inspired by the Eugene O’ Neil play of the same name and set to music by composer Marvin David Levy. The work was commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera in 1967 and disappeared for thirty years until a new, more dramatic version of the opera was presented in 2003. After more rewrites, the opera will now be presented in South Florida. The story transplants the classic Greek tragedy to a small

New England town in 1865. Christine Mannon, the young wife of General Ezra Mannon, has fallen in love with a handsome young suitor while her husband is away at war. Seeing an opportunity to be with her new love, Christine replaces her husband’s heart medicine with poison, but the General manages to inform his daughter, Lavinia, of her mother’s murderous plot before taking his final breath. Enraged by her father’s tragic end, she enlists the help of her brother, Orin, as death and misfortune continue to follow this cursed family. With a most professional cast consisting

of: Lauren Flanigan, Rayanne Dupuis, Morgan Smith, Jason Collins, Kevin Langan, Riley Svatos, Carlton Ford, and Nelson Martinez, “Morning Becomes Electra” opens in the Arsht Center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House on November 16th at 7.00 p.m., November 19th and 23rd, 2013 at 8.00 p.m. and November 17th matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets start from $15 to $133 at the box office, located at 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami.

Piano From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––––– America, Europe and Japan. His story is unique. It epitomizes the mission of the Festival and its goal to further the careers of exceptional artists. MIPF – How did your first performance at the Festival come about? MD – I was living and studying in Italy at the time, but spending a summer at home in Serbia in 2002, when I had the chance to meet my former teacher, Kemal Gekic. Several years had passed since I was out of country, and we reminisced about the past. Maestro asked me to play Medtner’s SonataReminiscenza. At the same time, our mutual friend, pianist and piano teacher, Alan Fraser, offered to record this and several other pieces I had in my fingers back then. Kemal decided to take the recording to the US and share it with someone who was constantly hunting for pianists around the world. It was Giselle Brodsky, the founder and Artistic Director of the Festival. I

guess she liked what she heard because the next thing I knew I was booked to perform Medtner, among others, in May of 2003. MIPF - What happened next? MD - Giselle suggested that I should stay in Miami and recommended me to William Hipp, then Dean of the Frost School of Music at

Page 3B





UM. I began my studies with Frank Cooper there not long afterward on a full scholarship. After graduating from UM, I got my Master’s degree at FIU, where I returned back to those old times once again studying with Kemal, who is FIU’s Artist in Residence. MIPF – Where there any other opportunities that developed from your association with the Festival? MD- Right after my debut in 2003, I met my American parents, Carlton and Andrea Cole, with whom I’ve been living off and on ever since. Giselle recommended me to numerous venues and festivals all around the US such as Ravinia’s Rising Stars series and the Gilmore Festival. She also came up with some great musical collaborations for me with artists like Ida Haendel, Gilles Apap, and many others. MIPF – How do you feel about opening the Festival’s 17th Season this month and what have you chosen to perform? MD – To play in the Festival is like playing at home. That does not make it comfortable, as it may sound, but is quite the opposite. It is hard to play for friends and for those people who have been coming to all your concerts for the past ten years.

My program is somehow built around the idea of adjusting music to the piano which was not originally written for it – Bach did not write his Partita No.2 for the instrument we use today; Tchaikovsky’s Scherzo comes from the sixth Symphony (piano arrangement by Feinberg) and his little Lullaby is a song written for voice (arranged by Volodos); Albeniz may evoke the sound of Spanish flamenco guitars and so on. I fell in love with Mozart lately and particularly with his operas and his orchestral works. My initial idea was to play Mozart’s well known Symphony No.40, arranged for piano by his pupil Hummel, but Pappageno and his companions will show up on stage instead in my own arrangement of the Overture for The Magic Flute. MIPF – What a great program! We hope you get a great turnout for what promises to be a truly spectacular concert by an incredibly gifted artist. The 2014 Season continues with performances of other extraordinary artists during its three exciting series: Sundays at Five, a classical salon-style series at the Aventura Arts & Cul-

tural Center, will continue with performances on January 12, February 23 and April 27. The Master Series, “Romantic Spectrum” at the Amaturo Theatre of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts will focus on the works of Chopin, Schumann and Liszt on March 23 – March 25. The Discovery Series our

crown jewel at the historic Art Deco Colony Theatre on Miami Beach will present four successive evenings of brilliant piano recitals by recently discovered artists on May 15 – May 18. Please visit for all the details.

‘New Wireless Multi-Purpose Device helps with TV, Restaurants and Cell Phones!’ - and Aventura HEAR Center has it for you Hearing Aid Specialist, Javier “Bob” Benitez makes the experience of coming to Aventura Hear Center one to remember.

AVENTURA - At the Aventura HEAR Center, your hearing is Priority One. If people tell you your TV is too loud, or if you keep missing bits and pieces of conversation and have to ask people to repeat themselves, or if it seems that people are always mumbling, come see the hearing aid specialist, Javier “Bob” Benitez, BCHIS. He's eager to help you hear better. After 20 years, the HEAR Center is an Aventura fixture. It is behind Loehmann’s Plaza right next to the new Fresko restaurant by the back of Publix. The Aventura HEAR Center is a modern office equipped to fit patients with the best hearing technology available. It is a cheerful place, bright and airy. Ellen Pardue, the patient coordinator, greets you and in no time at all, you get to see the specialist. If you call in the morning, you can usually get an appointment the same day, and if you just want to drop by while you are in the area, Ellen will do her best to get you right in. "What we are doing here," Bob said, "is offering the best hearing care anywhere, so you won't wait long to see me and you will be treated professionally and courteously." The hearing evaluation takes 15 to 20 minutes and there is no charge. "The first thing I do is to check the ears with our advanced equipment." A videootoscope is used, a non-invasive device that transmits images of the ear canal and eardrum onto a monitor's high definition plasma screen. "I look in there and make sure there is not a lot of wax in the ear. Wax can cause a mild hearing loss, and sometimes removing the wax eliminates the problem! If there is no excessive wax, we go to the test room and I do an audiometric evaluation to see if there are some sounds the patient cannot hear well." The natural aging process and noise can cause a hearing loss, natural aging being the most common reason for hearing

problems. Stereos, Ipods, boom boxes, traffic, and a noisy work environment all contribute to the cause. "It's the prolonged exposure to noise that does it," he said. BENITEZ WAS STARKEY LAB'S FITTING SPECIALIST Before coming to the Aventura HEAR Center, Bob was, for 13 years, with Starkey Laboratories, the premier manufacturer of hearing technology in the United States. He is a Harvard graduate, a licensed Hearing Aid Specialist in the State of Florida, and nationally Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences. At Starkey, he was a fitting specialist. "I was the one to whom people like myself (a hearing professional) would send their patients when they couldn't figure out a way to make those patients happy with their hearing instruments." This experience made Bob an expert with hearing aid fittings. “The new digital instruments are complex and require expertise if they are to be properly tuned for a patient’s individual needs,” Bob said. IT IS POSSIBLE YOU SUFFER SOME HEARING LOSS If the tests show conclusively that you suffer permanent hearing loss . Benitez said, " One out of three Americans over age 65 has a hearing problem and half of adults over 75 have one. Everyone over 65 years old should be getting their hearing checked regularly. Hearing problems, like having difficulty understanding what people say, can get worse if not treated. That is why it’s important to get your hearing checked. Once you know you have a problem, you can take steps to deal with it. Just as your primary care physician does not routinely check your eyesight, she or he will not be checking your hearing. In both cases physicians normally assume you are seeing a specialist for care in these areas. The sad part is that while most seniors take good care of

their eyes, very few actually have yearly hearing tests. There is no reason for it! You do not need a referral to have a hearing evaluation—just call the Aventura HEAR Center and ask for an appointment!” Improved hearing leads to an improved quality of life. Many people who have a hearing loss become more and more isolated because they cannot enjoy conversations in social situations, but hearing help is now available that really works. THE NEWEST TECHNOLOGY Hearing aids have become very sophisticated and there are many, many choices. How is a patient to decide which hearing aid to wear? “It starts with a hearing professional you can trust,” Benitez said. “It is a good thing to do research and find out what you can about hearing loss and how hearing aids can help, but when it comes to choosing a hearing aid, you need to follow the advice of a professional.” Many patients think because their friend or a family member did well with a particular hearing aid that they will also do well. “That’s not always the case. Certain types of hearing instruments are designed for particular configurations of hearing loss, and your friend or relative may have a high frequency loss and do well with those aids, but you have a low frequency loss and the aid is completely inadequate for you. As a hearing professional, I am responsible for evaluating your loss and recommending the appropriate hearing aid for your loss, lifestyle, and budget.” “Lifestyle is important,” he adds, “because a person who is not active or who has a very limited social life due to health issues simply does not need some of the advanced features available on the more sophisticated instruments.” Some hearing aids offer features designed specifically for very active social lives, and that is not what everyone needs. On the other hand, most patients would benefit from a hearing aid that does not whistle all the time, or

• The Aventura HEAR Center is a modern office equipped to fit patients with the best hearing technology available

an aid that makes noisy rooms more comfortable, or one that allows for telephone use without having to push a button. Benitez said, “many of the old problems that people had with hearing aids which prevented them from wearing them have been overcome by advances in technology, so even if you have tried hearing aids in the past and did not liked them, there are good reasons to take a second listen.” And what about all those different hearing aid companies, which one makes the best hearing aids? “They all do,” Benitez adds with a chuckle, “it’s not the company, it’s the professional fitting you that is crucial.” There are several big hearing aid companies worldwide, and they all make very good products, they are all priced very competitively, and the Aventura HEAR Center has relationships with all of them. “It used to be one company was better at one type of aid and another at a different type. With the advent of digital aids, that has all changed. My experience working for the manufacturer gives me a certain edge—I have a level of training and programming expertise not available to most dispensers and that’s an important aspect of what I offer my patients. Even if you bought your aids elsewhere, there may be something I can do to help you hear better with them!” NEW WIRELESS

MULTI-PURPOSE DEVICE REALLY WORKS! “Many patients complain that they cannot hear TV well. They have to turn up the volume and their spouses (or neighbors) complain that it is too loud. New wireless technology allows effortless TV viewing by turning the hearing aids into personal headsets—it’s like wearing earphones! The hearing aids are nearly invisible and very comfortable to wear. But not only TV, the new assistive device from Starkey lets you hear your Bluetooth enabled cell phone in both ears and can be used to hear better in places of worship, conferences and restaurants.” Can this be used with your existing hearing aids? “If you currently wear Starkey Wi hearing aids the multi-purpose device (which is also a remote control for the aids) can be added to

the system. Otherwise several wireless hearing aids are available now that are compatible including a tiny wireless CIC.” What about people who want hearing aids that are more than “nearly” invisible? Benitez says, “We have the new SoundLense invisible aids from Starkey that disappear into the ear canal but use regular batteries and last several years before they need to be replaced. They are like contact lenses for your ears, and they offer the best, most natural sound quality available in a hearing instrument. The SoundLense aids have been very well received by the public and are the most cost-effective ‘invisible’ solution.” It sounds like there is a way to help anyone who wants to hear better. “Exactly, we have solutions for every type of loss and every budget!” So, what are you waiting for? An invitation?

Is the protein in your pet's food causing a deadly disease? (BPT) - You've seen the commercials and print ads: It seems like every pet food maker is touting meat as a top ingredient. Some even go so far as to eliminate grain completely, advertising super-high levels of protein for dogs or cats. But when it comes to pet food and protein, can there be too much of a good thing? According to the experts: yes. "There's no arguing that quality meat is important in dog and cat foods, but too much of commonly-used protein-rich ingredients for long periods of time can have devastating consequences for pets with subclinical kidney disease," says Dr. Daniel Aja, DVM and director of U.S. professional and veterinary affairs for Hill's Pet Nutrition. "Just like our diet must be balanced, this is especially important for our pets which rely on us for 100 per-

cent of their nutritional needs." Dr. Aja explains that every dog and cat needs the amino acids that are present in proteins. While those amino acids may come from meat, many can also come from vegetables and grains in the diet. Protein is important and necessary to build muscles, organs, vital hormones and enzymes, but excessive levels derived from the animal protein ingredients commonly used in pet foods can lead to elevated phosphorus levels. "Research shows that excess phosphorous beyond the nutritional requirements of your pet can place unnecessary and harmful stress on your pet's kidneys," says Dr. Aja. "Over time, this can accelerate the progression of chronic kidney disease." Pet owners feeding their cats and dogs too

Anger Management By Dr. Ron In response to some questions I have received regarding anger issues, and anger management, I have written the following article. To cover the entire field of anger management in one article is impossible, so I have picked two of the most important: Displacement of anger”, and “Assertiveness training”… John P has a very abusive and hostile boss. Today was particularly bad as John’s boss told him he was not worth his pay, and insinuated that if his love life was like his work his wife would never end up having a child… John is too frightened to confront his boss’s snide and inappropriate comments, and instead goes home dejected, and steaming mad. He enters his home, where his wife is busily cooking, and asks “what’s for dinner”?. She responds “chicken”, and John goes into another of his many rages… “Chicken again…, Chicken again?... Can’t you think of anything different?...Your cooking stinks, and your chicken is the worst of it. You’re lucky I put up with this!... You’re not worth two dead flies!!!”. The above is a classic example of anger displacement, emotional abuse, and projection. Projection is basically identifying onto others the unwanted feelings we have of our selves… Displacement of anger involves directing anger onto something or someone that is not the true source of the anger. Abuse is the outcome of all this hurt and frustration…John is not really mad at his wife, but he is afraid to confront his boss. Now both he and his wife are angry & miserable, proving once again: “What comes around goes around”. Is there a solution here, other than John quitting his job or his wife leaving him?... Yes there is. Anger management therapy might help John tremendously, especially in the area known as “assertiveness training”. Assertiveness training helps one understand the triggers which cause our anger, and how to efficiently respond to that which upsets our sense of well-being. It is not a denial process, and should not be, as anger is often an understandable, and even justifiable human emotion.…. So for those of you who over-react, or are too timid to confront, consider a little help in this area. It might just change your entire life. Dr. Ron… You can contact Dr. Ron @ 954 270-4226 ..or

much phosphorous from common animal protein ingredients may unknowingly contribute to the progression of chronic kidney disease. Considering kidney disease is the No. 1 killer of cats and the No. 2 killer of dogs, it's an important message for all pet parents. "The importance of controlled phosphorus levels for pets parallels the importance in human health care and disease prevention," explains Dr. Aja. "Health care professionals apply the same reasoning to human diets in regard to foods high in cholesterol, fat and sodium." Research shows that controlling and moderating levels of dietary phosphorus is impor-

• When it comes to pet food and protein, can there be too much of a good thing? Experts say yes tant in slowing the progression of chronic kidney disease in dogs and cats. To maintain healthy phosphorus levels, Hill's - maker of Science Diet, Ideal Balance and Prescription Diet brand pet foods uses multiple protein sources, both animal and plant-based, in their foods. "Since signs of kidney disease are often not evident until the disease is very progressed, keeping dietary protein and

Take your multivitamin to control diabetes (NewsUSA) - For people with diabetes, taking a multivitamin every day can mean much more than a little protection against the common cold. Research is finding that multivitamins can be the first line of defense against many different types of infections, including respiratory infections and influenza. "Once a person with diabetes gets an infection, it's much harder for them to get rid of it, and it can lead to dire consequences, even death," says Registered and Certified Dietitian-Nutritionist Debra Spector. "And since some diabetic patients don't normally respond well to treatment, prevention is key." Taking a special diabetes multivitamin -- usually found in the diabetes section of a drugstore, not the vitamin section -- allows a diabetic person to be proactive with their health, and avoid nutrient deficiencies that can lead to problems. The year-long study among 130 patients, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found that the incidence of infection was much lower among diabetics who took a multivitamin versus those who did not. Infection occurred in only 17 percent of diabetic patients who took a multivitamin versus the 93 percent who took a placebo. The study also found that regular multivitamin usage reduced the rate of minor urinary tract and gastrointestinal infections in people with diabetes. Because of the nature of the disease, it's not uncommon for diabetics to experience nutrient deficiencies. Diabetes medications and frequent urination can lead to the loss of vital nutrients that protect the body. "Since there are many health risks that can result from vitamin and mineral deficiencies, I encourage my diabetic patients to find a multivitamin supplement with more potent levels of important nutrients to meet their needs," says Spector. "It should contain Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), an important nutrient that most 'regular' multivitamins do not have. I like Multi-betic Diabetes Multi-Vitamin since it has 23 important nutrients, including ALA, designed to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, support vision and promote nerve function."

phosphorus levels in check is a good preventive step every pet owner should take," advises Dr. Aja. Since seemingly normal pets can have undetected kidney disease, it's important to discuss your pet's diet with your veterinarian. Dr. Aja says if you see these warning signs of kidney disease, call your veterinarian right away: 1. Increased thirst and urine production 2. Decreased appetite 3. Weight loss 4. Bad breath 5. Vomiting and diarrhea 6. Sore mouth 7. Muscle weakness 8. Lack of energy 9. Decreased grooming habits in cats When it comes to the pet food you give your

pet, a balanced approach is best. Always purchase food from companies with certified veterinary nutritionists on staff. You can call the 1-800 number on a bag of pet food to confirm this information and to ensure your pet food maker is controlling the level of dietary phosphorus in its products. "Balancing protein and controlling the level of phosphorus in the diet throughout an animal's adult life is key to optimal nutrition and will benefit pets that have undiagnosed kidney disease," Dr. Aja says. "Ask your veterinarian for a dietary recommendation based on your pet's needs. Proper, balanced nutrition is the best form of preventative medicine for your pet."

Rethink What You Drink -- Alkaline Water May Be What You Need Your diet, for better or worse, doesn't just affect your waistline or the scale, but also plays a complex part in how you feel. While much has been written on boosting the body's immune system by eating foods dense in nutrients like antioxidants, zinc and omega 3s, many don't consider what they drink. Highlighting this point is a study conducted by Dr. Alyson Goodman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that suggests 7 percent of all Americans drink zero cups of water per day. Zero. According to Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, in order for a body to function well, it must continuously work to maintain a proper pH or chemical balance.

Commercial Real Estate Finance Market Shows New Life (NewsUSA) - Until recently, the commercial real estate market has made a sluggish recovery from the nation's economic recession. The good news is that property values, rental rates and occupancy rates are improving, and commercial real estate appears to be gaining critical traction. Lower interest rates have started to help

create larger demand from borrowers -- who are already feeling some effects of the improving real estate market -- which is giving the commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) market some rejuvenation. In fact, 2012 saw CMBS issuance reach a postrecession high of $48.18 billion -- a number that is expected to rise in 2013 and be-

yond. "I am very optimistic about the CMBS business in 2013. I think volumes will grow substantially," says Anthony Orso, CEO of Cantor Commercial Real Estate (CCRE). "You will continue to see high-quality loans, and you will see more capital raised for the B-piece community." Orso is speaking from professional ex-

perience. The New York-based real estate finance company, an affiliate of Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., originated nearly $5 billion in securities throughout 2012. With help from Cantor Fitzgerald, CCRE sold to more than 150 bond investors last year. Orso only expects those figures to grow -- confidence that he shares with top commercial

real estate (CRE) financers, like Omega Commercial Finance Corporation ( m). "Omega uses a principle based on marrying affordable financing with available capital," says Jon S. Cummings IV, president of Omega Commercial Finance Corp. "One of the advantages of traditional

CMBS lenders is the ability to offer competitive rates against banks, agency lenders and insurance companies. Omega is strategically positioned to accommodate this growing market." Learn more about CRE loans and the rebounding market at

Gingivitis is certainly a disease to take seriously Gingivitis, also generally called gum disease or periodontal disease, begins with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end -- if not properly treated -- with tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue that surrounds your teeth. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GINGIVITIS AND PERIODONTITIS? Gingivitis (gum inflammation) usually precedes periodontitis (gum disease). However, it is important to know that not all gingivitis progresses to periodontitis. In the early stage of gingivitis, bacteria in plaque build up, causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed during tooth brushing. Although the gums may be irritated, the teeth are still firmly planted in their sockets. No irreversible bone or other tissue damage has occurred at this stage. When gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis. In a person with periodontitis, the inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These small spaces between teeth and gums collect debris and can become infected. The body's immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Toxins or poisons -produced by the bacteria in plaque as well as the body's "good" enzymes involved in fighting infections -start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. As the disease progresses, the pockets deepen and more gum tissue and bone are destroyed. When this happens, teeth are no longer anchored in place, they become loose, and tooth loss occurs. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults WHAT CAUSES GUM DISEASE? Plaque is the primary cause of gum disease. However, other factors can contribute to periodontal disease. These include: • Hormonal changes, such as those occurring during pregnancy, puberty, menopause, and monthly menstruation, make gums more sensitive, which makes it easier for gingivitis to develop. Illnesses may affect the condition of your gums. This includes diseases such ascancer or HIV that interfere with the immune system. Because diabetes affects


the body's ability to use blood sugar, patients with this disease are at higher risk of developing infections, including periodontal disease and cavities. Medications can affect oral health, because some lessen the flow of saliva, which has a protective effect on teeth and gums. Some drugs, such as the anticonvulsant medication Dilantin an d the anti-angina drug Procardia and Ad alat, can cause abnormal growth of gum tissue. Bad habits such as smoking make it harder for gum tissue to repair itself. Poor oral hygiene habits such as not brushing and flossing on a daily basis, make it easier for gingivitis to develop. Family history of dental disease can be a contributing factor for the development of gingivitis. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF GUM DISEASE? Gum disease may progress painlessly, producing few obvious signs, even in the late stages of the disease. Although the symptoms of periodontal disease often are subtle, the condition is not entirely without warning signs. Certain symptoms may point to some form of the

disease. The symptoms of gum disease include: • Gums that bleed during and after tooth brushing • Red, swollen, or tender gums • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth • Receding gums • Formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums • Loose or shifting teeth • Changes in the way teeth fit together upon biting down, or in the fit of partialdentures. HOW DOES MY DENTIST DIAGNOSE GUM DISEASE? During a dental exam, your dentist typically checks for these things: • Gum bleeding, swelling, firmness, and pocket depth (the space between the gum and tooth; the larger and deeper the pocket, the more severe the disease) • Teeth movement and sensitivity and proper teeth alignment • Your jawbone, to help detect the breakdown of bone surrounding your teeth HOW IS GUM DISEASE TREATED? Periodontal Therapy & Deep Cleaning If gum disease is not treated and nothing is done about it, the inflammation will work its way down to-

wards the foundations of the tooth causing a “periodontal pocket”. Again, within the confines of the pocket, the conditions are such that the bacteria can have a right old party, and cause more damage. Gum disease can break down the support (bone) structures of the teeth, so that eventually, they will become loose. The problem is that until it gets quite severe, the person often has no symptoms. Sadly, the damage to the support structures of the teeth is irreversible. The good news is that if gum disease is caught in time, its progression can be halted and improved upon, and that is the key. To stop gum disease from progressing, your dentist may advise periodontal therapy, or deep cleaning. This gets rid of the bacteria in the pocket and provides the necessary conditions for healing to occur. What is the difference between an ordinary cleaning and deep cleaning? There is some confusion about the difference between scaling and root planing. Scaling is basically the process of removing dental tartar from the surfaces of the teeth (see dental cleanings).

Dr. Patricia Bobadilla is a phone call away for all your dental needs right here at Hallandale Beach - (954) 456-1939.

Root planing is the process of smoothening the root surfaces and removing any infected tooth structure. If you have gum disease or gum pocketing, the gum pockets around the teeth will have deepened, thereby allowing tartar deposits to form under the gumline. The two processes tend to blur together since during the cleaning process, the dental worker scales away tartar and performs any necessary root planing at the same time. Any roughness can be planed away to result in a silky smooth surface. HOW CAN GUM DISEASE BE PREVENTED? Gum disease can be reversed in nearly all cases when proper plaque control is practiced. Proper plaque control consists of professional cleanings at least twice a year and daily brushing and flossing. Brushing eliminates plaque from the surfaces of the teeth that can be reached; flossing removes food particles and plaque from in between the teeth and under the gum line. Antibacterial mouth rinses can reduce bacteria that cause plaque and gum disease, according to the American Dental Association. Other health and lifestyle changes that will decrease the risk, severity, and speed of gum disease develop-


ment include: Stop smoking. Tobacco use is a significant risk factor for development of periodontitis. Smokers are seven times more likely to get gum disease than nonsmokers, and smoking can lower the chances of success of some treatments. Reduce stress. Stress may make it difficult for your body's immune system to fight off infection. Maintain a well-balanced diet. Proper nutrition helps your immune system fight infection. Eating foods with antioxidant properties -- for example, those containing vitamin E ( vegetable oils, nuts, green leafy vegetables) and vitamin C (citrus fruits, broccoli, potatoes) -- can help your body repair damaged tissue. Avoid clenching and grinding your teeth. These actions may put excess force on the supporting tissues of the teeth and could increase the rate at which these tissues are destroyed.

Unique and nutty twists on traditional holiday recipes

• Small twists can turn a traditional dish into a holiday classic (BPT) - With the holidays fast approaching it's time to enjoy some of the season's tastiest foods. Small twists can turn a traditional dish into a holiday classic. The good news is it's simple to add a fresh twist to holiday favorites with easy additions like Fisher Nuts. Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, an Iron Chef and expert on Food Network, says that nuts are one of the most versatile ingredients to use when reinventing dishes. Here are her top five tips for cooking with nuts: 1. Cranberry sauce with a tiny grate of orange zest and a handful of toasted almonds stirred in at the last minute puts a simple but tasty twist on a staple Thanksgiving side dish. 2. Want rich, thick gravy with no lumps? Thicken gravy with ground nuts instead of flour. Simply separate a little of the gravy in a bowl and blend with ground walnuts until smooth. Then just

whisk it back in the pot with the remaining gravy. 3. Spruce up holiday side dishes by stirring in some toasted pecans or almonds. Top gratins with a thin layer or stir a handful into sauteed or braised vegetables. The nuts bring out the earthy flavors of vegetables, adding richness without making dishes too heavy. 4. Stir together melted semi-sweet chocolate and a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts. Add a pinch of cinnamon and roll into bite-size candies. It's an easy way to have something different than a pie or cookies for the holidays. Plus it's gluten free. 5. Make nuts part of any season by toasting them in a little warm olive oil over medium heat. When the nuts are toasted and coated in the oil, stir in any fresh herb (for example, rosemary for winter or basil for summer) and allow the herbs to gently crisp up and meld with the nuts.

Serve as is with a pinch of salt. These five tips can help you transform traditional holiday fare into instant classics. To "wow" guests, try this tasty recipe from Chef Guarnaschelli at your next gathering: TWICE BAKED SWEET POTATOES WITH PECANS Sweet potatoes are at their best when combined with something sweet. This recipe blends flavors reminiscent of a cinnamon-infused pecan coffee cake topping and pairs them with sweet potatoes for a change from the more traditional marshmallow topped casserole. Plus, it's perfect for busy cooks because the potatoes can be microwaved in just 15 minutes.

1/2 cup melted unsalted butter, divided 1 teaspoon orange zest, packed 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 3/4 cup Fisher Pecan Halves, coarsely chopped 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup dark brown sugar 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 F. 2. Pierce sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on high for 15 minutes or until completely cooked through. Let rest 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. 3. Topping: Meanwhile, combine the pecans, flour, sugars, cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir to blend. Mix in 1/4 cup butter. The topping should form sandy clumps. Refrigerate. 4. Split the potatoes in




4 large sweet potatoes, about 3 pounds

Game Day Party Tips for Football Fans Entertaining this football season? To make your gatherings memorable, you’ll need to do more than just turn on the game and hope for the best. With the right party plays, you can treat your guests to a spirited game day and a memorable football feast. Try incorporating these game changing ideas into your regular party playbook: TEAM SPIRIT Get your friends geared up for game time from the moment they arrive. Hang a team banner in your entryway and adorn your yard with your team’s colors. Pump up your crowd by playing your favorite gametime tunes. Even if all your guests are rooting for the same team, spice it up with some friendly competition, like wagering on who hosts the crowd for the next game. Have face paint on hand and encourage your guests to arrive early so the party is well underway at kick-off. SCORING BIG WITH DIPS Food is usually the main attraction at most festivities, and footballthemed “home-gating” parties are no exception. Give your spread a thematic look by making a mini football field out of your table. Use AstroTurf as your tablecloth. Then space white tape stripes at intervals for the yard lines. But you can really score big with the food. Dips are the MVP of home parties, according a recent survey conducted by ConAgra Foods.

half lengthwise and scoop out some of the flesh inside. Arrange the sweet potato "halves" on a baking sheet. In a medium bowl, combine the sweet potato flesh with the remaining 1/4 cup butter, orange zest and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spoon the filling back into each potato half and top with the topping on a baking tray. Place the tray in the center of the oven and bake until the topping browns, 15 to 20 minutes.

Households Find Fruits and Vegetables in Home Juicing The home juicing trend is undergoing a resurgence as more people recognize the benefits of a diet bursting with fresh fruits and vegetables. According to the Produce for Better Health Foundation, it's estimated that only 6 percent of individuals eat the recommended daily servings of vegetables, and only 8 percent achieve the recommended servings of fruit. Data like this are only heightening the urgency for more home juicing. The benefits, however, go beyond simply meeting recommended daily values. The boost of antioxidants from fresh fruit and vegetable juice helps filter out built-up wastes and toxins. Raw juice strengthens cells, offering a wealth of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytonutrients, making it easier for the body to run more efficiently on a diet that's rich in leafy greens and fruits. Benefits range from improved skin to less inflammation to stronger immune systems. Not to mention, eating fresh produce lowers the risk of diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and cancer. Home juicing, however, isn't always the most convenient option. One problem is that juicing machines tend to be expensive -- oftentimes several hundred dollars. Another hangup is that many adults can barely fit coffee into hectic mornings -- let alone the mess after a homemade smoothie. This is where super premium packaged juice can come in handy. These juices can be consistent with a healthy lifestyle for those on the run and who don't want the fuss and hassle of juicing themselves. For example, one premium juice, Naked Juice, offers one pound of fruit in every bottle. Or, if you need a boost in vegetables instead, the Power Garden line boasts ingredients like carrots, chickpeas, beets and sweet potatoes. That's two servings of vegetables and one serving of fruit per bottle, plus tons of vitamins and fiber. Have a picky palette? That's no excuse either. The bottled smoothies come in a smorgasbord of fruit-forward flavors. Convenience, taste and nutrition, though, aren't the only reasons people are drinking Naked Juice.
