Now is not the time to be thinking about who’s performing your MRI.

WE’RE THE TEAM WHO HELPED CREATE THE MRI. In fact, Stony Brook’s contributions to MRI technology won a Nobel Prize. Since that time, we’ve continued to pioneer new and better medical imaging. Our team of highly trained specialists are incredibly adept at not only performing your scan, but then reading it with a greater level of understanding. Now, our pioneering work with PET technology has led to one of the few combination PET/MRI scanners in the nation. We can perform two simultaneous scans, leading to a more precise image of both structure and function for a more accurate diagnosis. Because this isn’t just medicine. This is Stony Brook Medicine.

How You Can Still Improve Your Financial Fitness This Year

If one of your New Year’s resolutions was  to get healthier, you may already be taking the necessary steps, such as improving your diet and increasing your exercise. Of course, physical fitness is important to your well-being – but, at the same time, George Ellsworth Smith don’t forget about your financial fitness. Specifically, what can you do to ensure your investment situation is in good shape?  Here are a few “healthy living” suggestions that may also apply to your investment portfolio: •  Build endurance  –    Just as exercise can help build your endurance for the demands of a long life, a vigorous investment strategy can help you work toward your long-term goals, such as a comfortable retirement. In practical terms, this means you will need to own some investments with the potential to provide long-term growth. These are the investments that, ideally, you can hold on to for decades and eventually reap the benefits of capital appreciation. Of course,

growth-oriented investments, such as most types of stocks, will rise and fall in value over the short term, and there’s no guarantee of profits, or even preserving principal. But if you choose wisely, and you’ve got the patience and discipline to hold on to your investments through the market’s ups and downs, you may well be rewarded.  • Maintain an ideal “weight” – You can help yourself stay healthy by maintaining your ideal weight. This can be challenging. As you know, it’s easy to put on a few extra pounds. And, just as inadvertently, your portfolio can tack on some unneeded weight, too, in the form of redundant investments. Over time, you may have picked up too many similar investment vehicles, resulting in an overconcentration, or “flabbiness,” that can work against you, especially when a market downturn affects the asset class in which you’re overloaded. So, you might be better off liquidating some of your duplicate, or near-duplicate, investments, and using the proceeds to help broaden your investment mix. 

• Get proper rest – Many studies have shown that we need adequate rest to stay alert and healthy. In your life, you’ve probably already found that if you over-tax your body, you pay a price in your overall well-being. If you look at your investment portfolio as a living entity – which, in a way, it is, as it certainly provides life to your goals and aspirations – then you can see that it, too, can be weakened by stress. And one of the main stress factors is excessive trading. If you’re constantly buying and selling investments in an attempt to boost your returns, you may rack up hefty fees, commissions and taxes – and still not really get the results you wanted. Plus, if you’re frequently moving in and out of different investments, you’ll find it hard to follow a unified, long-term  strategy. So, confine your trading to those moves that are really essential – and give your portfolio a rest. To enjoy your life fully, you’ll want to take care of your physical and financial health – and, as the year progresses, you can make similar types of moves to help yourself in both areas.

SBU’s Benjamin Martin scores first Sohn Research prize


Up and coming scientists are often stuck in the same position as promising professionals in other fields. To get the funding for research they’d like to do, they need to show results, but to get results, they need funding. Joseph Heller, author of “Catch 22,” would certainly relate. A New York-based philanthropy called the Pershing Square Sohn Cancer Research Alliance is seeking to fill that gap, providing seven New York scientists with $600,000 each over the course of three years. In the fifth annual competition, Benjamin Martin, an associate professor in the Department of Biochemistry & Cell Biology at Stony Brook University, won an award for his study of zebrafish models of metastatic cancer. Martin is the first Stony Brook researcher to win the prize. Working with Assistant Professor David Matus, whose lab is across the hall and whose research team conducts weekly group meetings with Martin’s lab, Martin is able to see in real time the way grafted human tumor cells spread through blood vessels to other organs in the transparent zebrafish. “It’s been very challenging to understand what process cancer cells are using to metastasize and leave the blood vessels,” said Olivia Tournay Flatto, the president of the Pershing Square Foundation. “With this technology, he can see what’s happening. It’s a really powerful tool.” The work Martin presented was “really appealing to the whole board, and everybody felt this kind of project” had the potential to bring data and insights about a process researchers hope one day to slow down or stop, said Flatto.

‘This platform is helpful for young investigators to be well positioned to find the right partners.’

— Olivia Tournay Flatto

This year, about 60 early-stage investigators applied for an award given specifically to researchers in the New York City area. When he learned that he won, Martin said, “There was some dancing going on in the living room.” He suggested that the award is a “validation” of his research work. The process of a cancer cell leaving a blood vessel is “basically a black box” in terms of the mechanism, Martin said. It’s one of the least understood aspects of metastasis, he added. Indeed, a developmental biologist by training, Martin is

Now Accepting Medicare Patients



David Dunaief, M.D. Integrative Medicine

• A Whole Body Approach • Reversing, Preventing &Treating Chronic Disease and Managing Weight by Connecting Conventional Medicine with Lifestyle Modifications Our Philosophy is simple. We believe wellness is derived through nutritional medicine and lifestyle interventions that prevent and treat chronic diseases. Medications have their place - and in some cases can be lifesaving. However, there’s no medication without side effects. The goal should be to limit the need for medications - or minimize the number of medications you take on a regular basis. You are not limited by your genes. Fortunately, most diseases are based primarily on epigenetics, which are environmental influences, and not on genetics. Epigenetics literally means above or around the gene. In epigenetics, lifestyle choices impact gene expression. Just because your first degree relatives may have had a disease, you are not predestined to follow suit. We are specialists who will partner with your primary care physician. A standard medical education does not integrate enough nutritional medicine and other lifestyle interventions. We bridge that gap.

We use evidence-based medicine to guide our decision-making. The amount of research related to nutrition and other lifestyle issues continues to grow rapidly, with many studies showing significant beneficial effects on health. We treat each patient as an individual. We will work with you to develop a plan that allows you to take a proactive role in managing your own health. The health outcomes are worth the effort. Is disease reversal possible? Absolutely! Study evidence has found this to be true, and many of our patients have experienced reversal of diabetes, autoimmune disorders, migraines, and cardiovascular disease, just to mention a few. In many cases, because of their exceptional results, our patients have been able to reduce or eliminate their medications.

David Dunaief, M.D.

Clinician, Researcher, Author and Speaker Dr. Dunaief was also recently published in The New York Times and appeared on NBC, News 12 Long Island and News 12 Brooklyn.

Proton pump inhibitors – Use with caution


Overuse may lead to serious side effects

Reflux (GERD) disease, sometimes referred to as heartburn, though this is more of a symptom, is one of the most commonly treated diseases. Continuing with that theme, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), which have become household names, are one of the top-10 drug classes prescribed or taken in the United States. In fact, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data shows that use has grown precipitously in the 10 years ending in 2010 for those ages 55 to 64, from 9 percent of the population to 16 percent (1). This is a 78 percent increase in the number of prescriptions for these drugs. In 2010, there were 147 million prescriptions filled for PPIs (2). The class of drugs includes Prevacid (lansoprazole), Prilosec (omeprazole), Nexium (esomeprazole), Protonix (pantoprazole) and AciBy David phex (rabeprazole). Dunaief, M.D. This growth may not capture the fact that several of these medications are now available over the counter. I remember when PPIs were touted as having one of the cleanest side effect profiles. This may still be true, if we are using them correctly for reflux disease. They are supposed to be used for the short term. This can range from 7 to 14 days for overthe-counter PPIs to 4 to 8 weeks for prescription PPIs. Why did we not know that this class of drugs might be associated with chronic kidney disease, dementia, bone fractures and Clostridium difficile (a bacterial infection of the gastrointestinal tract) before they were approved? Well, if you look at the manufacturers’ package inserts for these drugs, the trials, such as for Protonix, were no longer than a year (3), yet we are putting patients on these medications for decades. And the longer people are on them, the more complications arise. Typical symptoms of reflux are heartburn and/or regurgitation. Atypical symptoms include coughing and throat clearing. But these atypical symptoms may not be as common as you might think. In fact, in one study, coughing and throat clearing taken together only resulted in a very small portion of patients having reflux disease (4). Having one of these two symptoms showed a slightly higher risk of reflux, but very modest. Let’s look at some of the research. Though PPIs may increase the risk of a number of complications, keep in mind that none of the data are from randomized controlled trials (RCTs), which are the gold standard of studies, but mostly observational studies that suggest an association, but not a link. Long-term RCTs to determine side effects are prohibitively expensive.

PPI and kidney disease In two separate studies, results showed that there was an increase in chronic kidney disease with prolonged PPI use (5). All of the patients started the study with normal

patients were at least age 75. The authors surmise that PPIs may cross the coveted blood-brain barrier and have effects by potentially increasing beta-amyloid levels, markers for dementia. With occasional use, meaning once every 18 months for a few weeks to a few months, there was a much lower increased risk of 16 percent. The researchers also suggested that PPIs may be significantly overprescribed in the elderly. Unfortunately, there were confounding factors that may have conflated the risk, such as multiple drug use, having diabetes, or patient also having depression or a stroke history. Researchers also did not take into account family history of dementia, high blood pressure or excessive alcohol use, all of which have effects on dementia occurrence.

Recent research has tied proton pump inhibitors to a host of alarming health problems. kidney function based on glomerular filtration rate (GFR). In the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study, there was a 50 percent increased risk of chronic kidney disease, while the Geisinger Health System cohort study found there was a modest 17 percent increased risk. The first study had a 13-year duration, and the second had about a six-year duration. Both demonstrated a modest, but statistically significant, increased risk of chronic kidney disease. But as you can see, the medications were used on a chronic basis for years. In an accompanying editorial to these published studies, the author suggests that there is overuse of the medications or that they are used beyond the resolution of symptoms and suggests starting with diet and lifestyle modifications as well as a milder drug class, H2 blockers (6).

PPI and bone fractures In a meta-analysis (a group of 18 observational studies), results showed that PPIs can increase the risk of hip fractures, spine fractures and any-site fractures (8). Interestingly, when it came to bone fractures, it did not make a difference whether patients were taking PPIs for more or less than a year. How much less than a year was not delineated. They found increased fracture risks of 58, 26 and 33 percent for spine, hip and any site, respectively. It is not clear what may potentially increase the risk; however, it has been proposed that it may have to do with calcium absorption through the gut. PPIs reduce the amount of acid, which may be needed to absorb insoluble calcium salts. In another study, seven days of PPIs were shown to lower the absorption of calcium carbonate supplements when taken without food (9).

PPI and dementia A German study looked at health records from a large public insurer and found there was a 44 percent increased risk of dementia in the elderly who were using PPIs, compared to those who were not (7). These

Need for magnesium PPIs may have lower absorption effects on several electrolytes including magnesium, calcium and B12. In one observational study, PPIs combined with diuretics caused a 73 percent increased risk of hospitalization due to low magnesium (10). Diuretics are water pills that are commonly used in disorders such as high blood pressure, heart failure and swelling. Another study confirmed these results. In this second study, which was a meta-analysis (a group of nine studies), PPIs increased the risk of low magnesium in patients by 43 percent, and when researchers looked only at higher quality studies, the risk increased to 63 percent (11). The authors note that a significant reduction in magnesium could lead to cardiovascular events. The bottom line is even though some PPIs are over-the-counter and some are prescription medications, it is best if you confer with your doctor before starting them. You may not need PPIs, but rather a milder medication referred to as H2 blockers (Zantac, Pepcid). Even better, start with lifestyle modifications including diet, not eating later at night, raising the head of the bed, losing weight and stopping smoking, if needed, and then consider medications (12). If you do need medications, know that PPIs don’t give immediate relief and should only be taken for a short duration: 7 to 14 days, according to the FDA (13), without a doctor’s consult, and 4 to 8 weeks with one. Most of the problems occur with long-term use.

Vanderbilt estate in Centerport receives a garden makeover





The Washington Spy Trail Guide

In the heat of the American Revolution, General George Washington turned to the everyday patriots of the North Shore of Long Island for help. Although under British occupation, the patriots bravely formed a secret network of spies, which would change the course of not only the Revolution, but the entire history of America. To be part of this issue, reaching readers in a very select audience along the North Shore and beyond, call your sales representative at





An Invitation to Retrace the Footsteps of the Patriots in their Journey of Intrigue During the American Revolution

Throughout the summer, visitors to the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport will see the spectacular results of its first Gardeners Showcase. A call went out at the beginning of the year inviting local nurseries and garden designers to “bring back the gardens.” In May, local nurseries, landscapers and garden designers used their artistry to transform 10 gardens on the grounds of the 43-acre waterfront estate of William K. Vanderbilt, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the last remaining Gold Coast estates on the North Shore of Long Island. “I am grateful for the enthusiastic response from the landscaping and gardening community to volunteer their talents to beautify this historic estate,” said Lance Reinheimer, executive director of the Vanderbilt Museum. The new gardens were established at the main entrance gates, in front of the planetarium, the mansion courtyard, the Wishing Well and back terrace using boxwoods, yews, perennials, herbs, annuals, topiaries, grasses and more. Existing gardens, including the ones with water features, were spruced up as well. One of the more popular gardens is the sensory garden located in front of the Charles and Helen Reichert Planetarium. A collaboration between Gro Girl Horticultural Therapy and Pal-O-Mine Equestrian J-STEP (Job Security Through Equine Partnership), it features a topiary horse as well as rosemary, lavender, marigolds and a fuzzy plant called lamb’s ear. The garden also recycles Christmas trees (with branches removed) to construct teepee-like structures for climbing, flowering vines. The goal of the garden is “to arouse the senses and to evoke positive feelings.” “These floral artisans, as well as our own veteran corps of accomplished volunteer gardeners, have invested their time, labor and resources. Their enhancements will be enjoyed by more than 30,000 visitors this summer. We hope to continue this collaboration for many years,” Reinheimer said.

JUST TROTTING ALONG Above, a topiary/sensory garden designed by members of the Pal-O-Mine Equestrian J-STEP Program and Gro Girl Horticultural Therapy is located in front of the Planetarium.

Showcase participants include Gro Girl Horticultural Therapy of Greenlawn, Pal-O-Mine Equestrian J-STEP Program of Islandia, Sacred Gardens of Center Moriches, Dina Yando Landscape & Perennial Garden Design/North Service Nursery of Centerport, Landscapes by Bob Dohne of Greenlawn, Carlstrom Landscapes of Rocky Point, Mossy Pine Garden & Landscape Design of Greenlawn, Centerport Garden Club, Joe deGroot Designs of Centerport, Mother Earth’s Landscape & Nursery of East Northport and Vanderbilt Volunteer Gardeners. Each group is identified by signage at its Garden Showcase site. The event will run through Sept. 30. The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum is located at 180 Little Neck Road in Centerport. To see the gardens, visitors pay only general admission: $8 adults; $7 seniors/students (age 62-plus or student ID); $5 children age 12 and under; children age 2 and under, free.

Dependably deer-proof annuals provide weeks of vibrant colors

Successful perennial plantings present landscaping solutions that endure for a few years at a minimum: right plant, right place. Yarrows, peonies, echinaceas, catmint, sages and grasses of all kinds are dependable year-in, year-out, with no worries that the deer will compromise the peak of their performance with unpredictable browsing. But what about annuals? What possibilities are there for long seasons of color that deliver a strong return on our efforts, and that the deer will dependably leave alone? Here’s a few that my wife and I have successfully grown in our East Setauket garden, which happens to be Grand Central Station for deer. These plants supply many weeks of color and character and carry the garden from July through October, and they too can be counted on as year-in, yearout solutions. These here all require plenty of sun, so if you haven’t got enough, maybe it’s time to call an arborist and remove some Norway maples, Ailanthus (tree of heaven) or black locust. Snapdragons flower in early summer. They are charming in a vase and there are some great colors out there. They self-seed for us and occasionally overwinter. We like the taller ones; the deer don’t. Nor do they touch cosmos or zinnias. The former are charming daisies, the embodiment of simplicity in the garden; the latter have the colors that remind me of vintage psychedelic rock posters. Buy them at the garden center or start seeds in April. We prefer the tall zinnia seed strain, Giant. Deadhead spent flowers, especially the zinnias. We love lantana. Readily available, we have certain varieties in certain colors that we look out for. The Bandana series is upright and not trailing. They are actually perennial, woody shrubs, native in the tropics and thus not hardy. Vibrantly colored, heat and drought tolerant, aromatic, they attract hummingbirds and butterflies. We started years ago supplementing clients’ sunny beds with them, and we’d cut them back to about a foot in early November; dig them up and squeeze them into as small

an azalea pot (broader than deep) as possible; water them in just once; leave them a day or two outside; and leave them alone to be dormant in a cold (but not freezing) garage or basement. We try to place them where there is a window, just a tiny bit of light, let them get good and dry, and water only every three or four weeks. We move them outside in May, they start growing, and by late May they are planted out again. They get larger from year to year, but we still pot them up, not without questioning our sanity, and are rewarded with lantanas a yard high and wide — a splendid filler after spring and early summer perennials are finished. One might expect zaftig dahlias to be irresistible to deer, but astonishingly they are unmolested. My wife has become the in-house dahlia enthusiast at Bosky Garden Design, adding each year to her collection of favorites. And there are indeed so many gorgeous varieties. The best cut flowers, you can grow them just for that, or they are easily incorporated in mixed planting schemes, color combination possibilities are endless. We overwinter them, again in a cold basement, bare of soil, wrapped first in newspaper and placed in those 5-cent plastic bags with peat moss. We love the shock of red of scarlet sage, if used wisely (i.e., segregated), but salvias of all kinds are avoided by deer. Salvia greggii is sold as an annual, but some varieties will be perennial given favorable conditions. This is a plant to look for; there is a wide range of colors, some hardier than others. Cleome will self-seed prolifically, not until late May. Sparkler is a great seed strain that is tall and that repels deer for sure. Last, and certainly not least, we have Verbena bonariensis, a short-lived perennial, technically, that succumbs to temperatures below 10 degrees but that self-seeds more abundantly than even cleome. For us it is a tall matrix plant that intermingles everywhere in the garden. Loved by butterflies, loathed by deer, it epitomizes and unifies the naturalistic planting style.

‘Roland Palmedo

A Life of Adventure and Enterprise’ Biography Reviewed by Elizabeth Kahn Kaplan

Philip F. Palmedo celebrates the remarkable life of his father “Roland Palmedo: A Life of Adventure and Enterprise” looks behind the extraordinary achievements of a 20th-century pioneer in the development of skiing in this country. Several previous books by the author, St. James resident Philip F. Palmedo, delved into the relationship between sculptors’ lives and their work. Turning now to a subject closer to his heart, in this biography Philip explores and illuminates the traits that propelled his father to be “an exemplar of an uncommon adventurous life that has become all too rare.” Written 40 years after Roland’s death, Philip provides more than details about his father’s adven- Above, author Philip F.

nature-respecting trails were the reason for Mad River’s reputation as an expert’s mountain; bumper stickers declared, “Ski It If You Can.” Roland was determined to retain the love and joy of the sport. At his insistence, Mad River Glen was designed to keep all but serious skiers away: “No hotels; just a few homey inns; no nightlife, except of the most home-spun country sort.” It is still a favorite of amateur skiers attracted by the untouched nature of the area. Without his financial expertise, neither Stowe nor Mad River Glen would have come to be. Similarly, he used his business organizational skills at Lehman Brothers in the 1920s to create aviation companies. Roland served on several aviation company boards, including Pan Am. He remained with Lehman Brothers until the 1960s. The U.S. Naval Air Force was in its infancy when Roland became a member of the first air squadron, in 1917. He flew air patrols with the RAF. Returning to civilian life, he continued flying out of the now-defunct Long Island Aviation Country Club in Hicksville. He compared flying with skiing, for in both you interacted directly with and controlled the forces of nature. He flew open-cockpit planes, including a Stearman biplane, from Manchester, Vermont, to New York in 1939. Four months after Pearl Harbor, he re-enlisted in the U.S. Naval Airforce. Lt. Commander Roland Palmedo served on the aircraft carrier Yorktown near the coast of Japan.

Many sons and daughters of men with distinguished careers and all-consuming personal passions have felt the loss of a warm companion and a strong guiding hand. Not so with Roland Palmedo. He taught his sons to ski and play tennis and provided adventures from white-water kayaking trips to expeditions to Europe and to Chile. Philip appreciated Roland as a patient and loving grandfather. Roland’s granddaughter, Philip’s niece Bethlin “Scout” Proft, lives in the mountainside house that Roland rebuilt in the 1930s as “the first ski chalet in Vermont.” She created and runs a working farm there, in East Dorset. Scout quotes her granddad when she says, “Leave the world a better place.” Roland died just before his 82 birthday on March 15, 1977. Philip regrets that he did not ask his father what it was like to fly rickety biplanes, to explore Mount Mansfield before there were lifts and to create aviation companies in the 1920s. Perhaps those of us still lucky to have a father with whom we can celebrate this coming Father’s Day may wish to ask a few important, revealing questions. Both of you will profit. “Roland Palmedo: A Life of Adventure and Entreprise,” Peter E. Randall Publisher, is available online at or from its distributor at www.enfielddistribution. com.

Fun to cook and fun to eat recipes for Father’s Day

BY BARBARA BELTRAMI There’s Dad, dear man, beer, martini or wine glass in one hand, fork, tongs or spatula in the other, standing in a rather large cloud of black smoke grilling our dinner. Nobody does it better. We know that and so does he, so how can we not let him do it almost every night? But on Fathers Day we have to draw the line. Even though he cooks those steaks to perfection, even though he’s got the magic formula for getting the chicken crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, we can’t have him slaving over a hot grill on his special day. Am I suggesting that we do the barbecuing? Of course not. We understand that the grill is his special territory. I’m just saying that we have to cook for him and pamper him so he knows how much we love him, the greatest grillmeister of all. So what do we do? We make him a sumptuous but easy meal without the grill. First we marinate a pork tenderloin for a few hours in the fridge, then remove it and cook it for a short time in the oven. Next we chill Dad’s drink(s) and park him in a lounge chair, microwave some enormous russet potatoes and we toss together a big salad with everything we can think of in it. Dessert has been made and frozen the night before, and we’re so organized that we can spend most of our time waiting on Dad hand and foot. After all, doesn’t he deserve it?

Marinated Roasted Pork Tenderloin YIELD: Makes INGREDIENTS: • One 2-pound pork tenderloin (they often come two in a package so you can cook one and freeze the other or cook both and use the second one for leftovers, sandwiches, etc.) • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar • ¼ cup olive oil • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard • 1 tablespoon A-1 sauce • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon leaves or 1 teaspoon dried • 2 cloves garlic, minced • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 475 F. Place meat and marinade in a shallow roasting pan. Roast 25 minutes for pork that is slightly pink inside or 30 to 35 minutes for more well done. Let tenderloin rest for 15 minutes, then place on a cutting board and slice into 1-inch-thick rounds. Serve with baked potatoes with sour cream and/or butter.

The Everything Salad YIELD: Makes 6 servings INGREDIENTS: • 1 head red leaf or green leaf lettuce, washed and torn into bite-size pieces • 1 large tomato, diced • 1 green bell pepper, diced • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced • 1 cup chopped fennel • 4 radishes, washed, trimmed and sliced • 4 scallions, washed, trimmed and sliced • 6 frozen artichoke hearts, cooked and quartered • 2 medium carrots, peeled and shredded • 1 medium fresh beet, peeled and shredded • 1 cup cooked and sliced asparagus or string beans • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed • ¾ cup canned chick peas, washed and drained • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil • ¼ cup good wine vinegar • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste • 1 handful basil leaves, chopped • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill • 10 black olives, pitted and sliced • 2/3 cup crumbled Roquefort, blue or goat cheese, crumbled • ½ cup sunflower seeds • 4 hard boiled eggs, sliced DIRECTIONS: In a large bowl, combine lettuce, tomato, green pepper, cucumber, fennel, radishes, scallions, artichoke hearts, carrots, beet, asparagus, green peas and chick peas; toss well. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Drizzle mixture over tossed veggies; toss again to coat evenly. Arrange or evenly distribute the basil, dill, olives, cheese, sunflower seeds and eggs on top. Serve immediately at room temperature with crusty bread and unsalted butter.

Frozen Banana Split Pie YIELD: Makes 8 to 10 servings INGREDIENTS: • • • • • • • •

6 to 8 brownies 1½ cups vanilla ice cream, softened 1½ cups chocolate ice cream, softened 1½ cups strawberry ice cream, softened 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries 1 large banana, sliced 1/3 cup chocolate syrup 2 cups sweetened whipped cream

DIRECTIONS: In a 9-inch pie plate, mash, crush and press brownies into bottom and sides. Spread the vanilla ice cream over the brownie crust, then repeat with chocolate ice cream and finally strawberry ice cream. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. When ready to serve, remove from freezer, uncover and spread sliced strawberries and bananas over top; let sit 10 to 15 minutes to soften. Drizzle chocolate syrup over top, then drop dollops of whipped cream over fruit and chocolate.

GOING APE Celebrate the 50th anniversary of 'Planet of the Apes' with a screening of a new digital restoration of the sci-fi classic at the Cinema Arts Centre on June 18. In 1963, Pierre Boulle’s novel, "La Planète des Singes," proposed an alternate future where humans were no longer the dominant species of the planet. No longer the most technologically advanced. No longer the strongest. It was a Planet of the Apes. When the 1968 film adaptation was released in theaters, it took audiences by storm. Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, starring Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter and Maurice Evans, with a screenplay by Michael Wilson and Rod Serling, and an out-of-this-world score by Jerry Goldsmith, it is considered to be a milestone entry in the science fiction film genre.

JUNE 14 – JUNE 20, 2018



Stony Brook women’s lacrosse senior attack Kylie Ohlmiller has been named 2017-18 America East Woman of the Year, as announced by the conference office last week at its annual awards dinner. Ohlmilller recorded a nation-leading 157 points in 2018, helping Stony Brook achieve its first No. 1 national ranking in program history. She was selected America East Offensive Player of the Year, has been tabbed an International Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association All-Region First Team player and was selected as an Inside Lacrosse Division I All-American. Ohlmiller finished her fouryear career with the Seawolves posting an NCAA-record 498 points and 246 assists. She also owns the NCAA single-season record for points (164) and helpers (86). The Islip native was selected as a 2017 and 2018 Tewaaraton Award finalist during her time with the Seawolves. She graduated with a 3.24 GPA majoring in sociology and is devoted to several youth lacrosse initiatives including Play It Forward and Challenger Lacrosse. The senior was drafted No. 1 overall in the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League by NY Fight and an endorsement deal with Brine Lacrosse/New Balance. She will play in her first game June 23.


Kylie Ohlmiller named 2017-18 America East Woman of the Year Bobby Honeyman

Aaron Pinto

Honeyman, Pinto selected in MLB draft

Kylie Ohlmiller The Seawolves finished second in the annual America East Commissioner’s Cup — which recognizes the strongest athletic program in the conference as determined by a scoring system that rewards a school for success both during the regular season and championship competition in the conference’s 18 sports.


Aaron Pinto and Bobby Honeyman became the latest Seawolves to be selected in the Major League Baseball Draft. Pinto was taken by the Cleveland Indians in the 26th round and Honeyman was chosen by the Seattle Mariners in the 29th round. Pinto, a pitcher, was the 733rd overall selection, while Honeyman, an infielder, was taken with the 868th pick. The pair are the first Seawolves to be selected in the draft since 2016 when pitcher Tyler Honahan and outfielder Toby Handley were both chosen. “[It’s] an awesome feeling,” Pinto said. “Thank you for everyone at Stony Brook, especially Stony Brook Athletics and my coaches, for helping me achieve this opportunity to continue my career.” Pinto was a first-team All-America East Conference honoree this season after he set Stony Brook’s single-season and career save records. He recorded 12 saves in 2018 to go

along with five wins and a 1.05 ERA. He collected 15 career saves and 13 victories with a 2.72 ERA in 68 appearances. Honeyman, also a first-team All-America East Conference selection in 2018, hit .336 with 71 hits and 33 RBIs while playing in all 57 games this season. He finished his four-year career with 201 hits and 102 RBIs with 33 doubles and 12 triples to go along with a .975 career fielding percentage. “First I want to say thank you to the Seattle Mariners organization for giving me the opportunity to live out my dream and play professional baseball,” Honeyman said. “I want to say thank you to all the coaches at Stony Brook for getting me prepared for the next level and teaching life lessons that I will remember forever. I am extremely excited to go over to the West Coast and start this chapter in my baseball career as a Seattle Mariner.”

Summer Water Safety: What You Absolutely Need to Know Now Long Island, with its miles of beaches and acres of pools, is the ideal place to enjoy the delights of summer. But along with the fun of swimming, body surfing or just paddling around come some real dangers — including the risk for drowning. Statistics show that drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury and death for children ages one to four, and that drowning can occur in as little as two inches of water. For tips on water safety, Stony Brook’s Dr. Maribeth Chitkara, one of Long Island’s most committed advocates for summer safety, discusses steps you can take today to keep yourself, your family and your children safe all summer long.

What is the single most important thing to know about water safety? Never take your eyes off children who are in the water. Not even for a few seconds. Nine out of 10 drowning deaths occur when a caregiver is supervising but not paying attention. If you are at a party or with a group of people, have what the Long Island Drowning Prevention Task Force calls a “designated waterwatcher.” Designate one person to keep a watchful eye on the children and rotate the assignment every 20 minutes or so to keep the watcher fresh. It is important to keep an eye on children and especially toddlers when around any kind of water — small kiddie pools, toilets, buckets of water when washing the car and the like.

What are some other water safety tips? • If a lifeguard is present, never assume that he or she will serve as your eyes. • Always keep a phone near the pool. • If you have a pool, complete four-sided isolation fencing can prevent 50 to 90 percent of child drownings or near drownings. • You may consider investing in safety covers for pools, whirlpools and spa tubs. • If you have an infant or toddler, use a toilet seat lock. • Keep in mind that water reflects the sun’s rays. For protection against harmful rays, be sure to use a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. Reapply frequently, especially after going into the water. • If you will be outdoors for a good part of the day, be sure to stay hydrated to prevent heat stroke or exhaustion — especially if you are also exercising. Water is the best source of hydration for the body, and a good rule of thumb to remember is the “8 x 8” and “10 x 10 rule”: Women should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily and men should drink ten 10-ounce glasses daily.

What should you do if someone is drowning? It is important to get the person out of the water as soon as possible to get oxygen to their brain. If you can safely get the person onto land, do so; if not, immediately call for help. If there is a lifeguard present, enlist his or her aid. They are trained in water rescue and resuscitation. Otherwise, call 911 immediately.


Maribeth Chitkara, MD Pediatric Hospitalist, Stony Brook Children’s Associate Professor, Stony Brook University School of Medicine

Once the person has been rescued, appropriate and timely medical treatment is essential. With near drowning, the victim suffers oxygen deprivation, which can cause long-term brain damage. In these cases, every minute counts. Whenever possible, the victim should be taken to a Level 1 Trauma Center — a designation indicating the highest level of care — where trauma experts such as those at Stony Brook are experienced in caring for near-drowning patients. This will save valuable time in transferring a patient, should serious problems arise.

Where can people get more information about water safety? The Long Island Drowning Prevention Task Force has developed a comprehensive water safety education program. For information, visit This is a great resource for families.
