I think it found its home.” Shelton did feel some regret over giving her the song, though. “Right before it went to number one, he asked for it back. But it was just a little late at that point,” Lambert adds with a laugh.

Today, I took steps to balance my TYPE 2 DIABETES. Today, I chose a balanced diet and talked to my doctor.

If JANUVIA is right for you, start today with a free 30-day trial supply.* JANUVIA works to lower blood sugar in 2 ways. Talk to your doctor about JANUVIA today. Increases Insulin

Decreases Sugar Made In Liver

• JANUVIA is a once-daily prescription pill that helps your body increase the insulin made in your pancreas and decrease the sugar made in your liver. • Along with diet and exercise, JANUVIA helps lower blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. • JANUVIA is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).

JANUVIA (jah-NEW-vee-ah) should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or with diabetic ketoacidosis (increased ketones in the blood or urine). If you have had pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), it is not known if you have a higher chance of getting it while taking JANUVIA. Selected Risk Information About JANUVIA: Serious side effects can happen in people who take JANUVIA, including pancreatitis, which may be severe and lead to death. Before you start taking JANUVIA, tell your doctor if you’ve ever had pancreatitis. Stop taking JANUVIA and call your doctor right away if you have pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that is severe and will not go away. The pain may be felt going from your abdomen through to your back. The pain may happen with or without vomiting. These may be symptoms of pancreatitis. Do not take JANUVIA if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, including sitagliptin. Symptoms of serious allergic reactions to JANUVIA, including rash, hives, and swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and throat that may cause difficulty breathing or swallowing, can occur. If you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, stop taking JANUVIA and call your doctor right away. If you take JANUVIA with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), such as a sulfonylurea or insulin, your risk of getting low blood sugar is higher. The dose of your sulfonylurea medicine or insulin may need to be lowered while you use JANUVIA. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, irritability, hunger, fast heart beat, sweating, and feeling jittery. Your doctor may do blood tests before and during treatment with JANUVIA to see how well your kidneys are working. Based on these results, your doctor may change your dose of JANUVIA. The most common side effects of JANUVIA are upper respiratory tract infection, stuffy or runny nose and sore throat, and headache. Call 1-888-JANUVIA or visit Januvia.com. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

In 1941, Yankee great Joe DiMaggio set a record that no other ballplayer has ever come close to breaking: a 56-game-long hitting streak. In this propulsive account of that inspiring summer, the author (a Sports Illustrated senior editor) provides insight into why DiMaggio’s feat has proved impossible to repeat. Along the way, he re-creates the era when a quiet man with a mighty bat gave a nation teetering on the brink of war the hero it needed.

Ken Turns 50 uess who’s about to get his AARP card in the mail! The perpetually smooth-

chested, all-American boy wonder Ken (né Ken Carson) hit the big 5-0 on March 11. But don’t expect to catch him on the golden oldies circuit just yet—he’s egf far too busy with his own Bachelor-esque reality TV show, Hulu’s Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend, a Facebook page, and even a Twitter account. And he’s won Barbie back after a seven-year breakup. The couple officially reunited on Valentine’s Day with this message to the world: “We may be plastic, but our love is real.” Born in 1961 (two years after Barbie), the original Ken was a skinny teen in red swim trunks, sporting a crewcut and underdeveloped pecs and selling for $3.50. Since then, he’s had his share of fashion ups and downs. Among the least attractive models was the ’70s-era hippieesque Now Look Ken, which had him rocking shoulder-length hair. We’re guessing the latest version will be a crowd-pleaser, though.

Sunday with... The star of Castle loves sci-fi, good grammar, warm weather—and he’s a bit of a neat freak, too

N

athan fillion

is proud to be a geek. When he’s not filming ABC’s mystery-comedy Castle, he can often be found viewing a loop of sci-fi and action movies (Avatar, the Star Trek franchise) in his trailer. “I’ve watched them a million times,” says the 39-yearold native of Edmonton, Canada, who has played the evil Caleb on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a

space captain in the series Firefly and its movie spin-off, Serenity. Kate Meyers caught up with him back on planet Earth. PARADE Let’s hear a few more of

your geek credentials. I have a trophy case that contains all the action figures ever made of me. It also has items I’ve stolen from my movies, like guns and holsters from Serenity. And a steampunk lightsaber [the Star Wars weapon, built

as it might have been in the 19th century] that somebody made me. I hear you have a man cave as well. Yes, it has a big ol’ TV and one of

those gadgets that let you press a button and watch in 3-D with the glasses on. It’s also got an Xbox; I’m a Halo: Reach guy. And artists I’ve met at sci-fi

conventions have sent me some beautiful posters from stuff I’ve done. I’m better-looking in them than I really am, so those are good to have. What do you watch on TV? My dinner spot is usually in front of the TV. I’ll grill a steak and whip up a salad and watch Hoarders. I love it because a) I’m kind of voyeuristic, and b) every time I see an episode, I go to the one room where all my unpacked boxes wound up, and I throw out a box of stuff.

What’s fun about playing Rick on Castle? How much he gets away with. He’s kind of goofy, but he thinks he’s cool. I like playing that kind of ignorance-is-bliss, devil-may-care guy.

How do you spend your Sundays? I love hiking in the hills not far from my house. I’m invested in my hikes. Sometimes kids go up there and spray-paint over the signs; I’ve found a biodegradable paint cleaner, and I’ll scrub the signs so they’re nice and clean. And if my girlfriend and I get up early enough, we’ll go out to breakfast. I like toast and eggs, and I like them together. What was it like growing up with parents who taught English? You know how people like to laugh at Canadians saying “eh” all the time? Well, we were not allowed to say “eh” in my house. Next on the list were double negatives, then split infinitives. Something that drives me nuts to this day

is people ending sentences with prepositions. Your grandmother gave you an Indiana Jones hat when you were a kid—what did that mean to you? We were in Fall River, south of Boston, where my father’s family is from, and my parents sent some of us to see this movie. The name, Raiders of the Lost Ark, didn’t make much sense to me, but the movie was so cool, and I thought, “All I need is a hat and a whip and my life will be an adventure.” I realize now that I loved the character because we were in an era of heroes who could do anything; there was just no challenge, and they’d always have a smug line. Whereas Indiana Jones was a guy who was barely holding it together, who

was getting beat up all the time, but he never quit. And Harrison Ford���if I steal from any actor, it’s him. Somebody told me long ago that in acting, it’s okay to steal, just steal from the best. What are you reading now? A novel I’ve already read three times, World War Z, by Max Brooks. It’s an oral B history of a 10-year zomhi bie infection 10 years after it happened. It’s terrifying. What’s your idea of the perfect vacation? Tropical. I can sit with a book, go for a swim. I recently got back from one where I stayed in a bungalow over the water. My theory is if there’s going to be a zombie attack, an over-water bungalow is a great place to be.

ALSAYS,“I’M JUST A MEAT AND POTATOES DOG. WITHOUT THE POTATOES, OF COURSE.” AL’S THE VOICE OF REAL DOGS. He doesn’t give a hoot about decorator dog foods. He’s a real dog. And real dogs have a mind for meaty goodness. As in the new tender, meaty bites in ALPO Prime Cuts With Beef in Gravy. Mmm, 100% pure satisfaction—not to mention 100% complete and balanced. It’s the new breed of ALPO for the new breed of dog: Real Dogs.

REAL DOGS EAT MEAT.

At first, the talented but unambitious Jim held a certain contempt for what he perceived as the life of an office drone. “He had other options—possibly going to Australia, maybe being the head of a branch office—but once he got married and had a baby, it was, ‘How do I make this job work for me?

By knowing your colleagues’ emotional styles, you can increase your effectiveness and, maybe, your salary. In my new book, It’s Always Personal, I surveyed working Americans and found four types: Solvers, Accepters, Believers, and Spouters. Solvers earned the most, $80,000, versus $65,674 for Accepters, $62,738 for Believers, and $59,253 for Spouters.
