Angelina Jolie in Maleficent with daughter Viv as Princess Aurora

Q: Were Angelina Jolie’s kids frightened by her character in Maleficent? —Doris M., Bristol, Conn. A: Jolie, 38, has said that when son Pax, 10, first saw her dressed as the spiteful sorceress for Disney’s new take on Sleeping Beauty (in theaters May 30), he “ran away and got upset … he was actually crying”—but he’s an extra in a christening scene with sister Zahara, 9. Jolie’s youngest girl, Vivienne, 6, got cast as the young Princess Aurora because she “wasn’t afraid of my horns and my [yellow] eyes and my claws.”

What’s it been like to play a cop losing his wife to illness just at the time you separated from your wife, Broadway star Idina Menzel, after 10 years of marriage? I have dark moments, and when I do have those, it’s not difficult to play my character. What made you dedicate your kids’ book, Chocolate Me!, to your son Walker, now 4? When I was around 5 years old, my parents moved to a predominantly white neighborhood in upstate New York and kids would make fun of me because of my skin. In our house, we didn’t say black or AfricanAmerican, we used the word chocolate. The book’s about expanding acceptance, because to a kid, chocolate isn’t anything but good. You’ve worked steadily in theater, TV, and movies. Have you gotten any useful career advice along the way? Whoopi [Goldberg] said, “Be good.” Then she said, “Sign autographs. Just don’t stop moving.”

Constipation that feels like bricks piling up?

You may be suffering from Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC).

LINZESS may provide the relief you need. LINZESS is a once-daily capsule that helps adults proactively manage the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation (IBS-C) or Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC). “Chronic” means the constipation is longlasting or keeps coming back. “Idiopathic” means the cause is unknown. LINZESS is the first and only approved treatment in a new class of drugs that work differently from other available medications. It acts locally in the intestine and is thought to work in two ways: by helping to calm pain-sensing nerves*, and by accelerating bowel movements. Bottom line, describe your symptoms to your doctor and ask about LINZESS today. *This was seen in animal studies and the relevance to humans is not known.

Who is LINZESS for? Prescription LINZESS® (linaclotide) is for adults with IBS-C or CIC. It is not known if LINZESS is safe and effective in children. IMPORTANT RISK INFORMATION • Do not give LINZESS to children who are under 6 years of age. It may harm them. • You should not give LINZESS to children 6 to 17 years of age. It may harm them. • Do not take LINZESS if a doctor has told you that you have a bowel blockage (intestinal obstruction). 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.

Before you take LINZESS, tell your doctor: • If you have any other medical conditions. • If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if LINZESS will harm your unborn baby. • If you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if LINZESS passes into your breast milk. • About all the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Side Effects LINZESS can cause serious side effects, including diarrhea, the most common side effect, which can sometimes be severe. Diarrhea often begins within the first 2 weeks of LINZESS treatment. Stop taking LINZESS and call your doctor right away if you get severe diarrhea during treatment with LINZESS. Other common side effects of LINZESS include gas, stomach-area (abdominal) pain, swelling, or a feeling of fullness or pressure in your abdomen (distension). Tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away. These are not all the possible side effects of LINZESS. For more information, ask your doctor or pharmacist. In addition, call your doctor or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away if you develop unusual or severe stomach-area (abdominal) pain, especially if you also have bright red, bloody stools or black stools that look like tar.

urking beneath your belly button is a supersize colony of bacterial cells—both helpful and potentially harmful. and when those cells get out of whack, it can cause way more than a tummy ache. Recent research has found that an imbalance of bacteria in your gut is linked to every­ thing from Irritable Bowel Syn­ drome to mental illnesses such as depression, and could even contribute to an increased risk for heart disease. But a recent Harvard study found that micro­ organisms in the intestines can be quickly modified, even within a day of changing your eating and lifestyle habits. “That means it’s possible to start improving digestion at your next meal,” says Jillian Teta, N.D., author of Natural Solutions for Digestive Health. Here’s how to keep the good and bad bacteria in balance: eat more plants. Studies show high­fiber foods like fruits and vegetables promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in your belly. “Eat a variety, along with

good sources of protein, and limit your refined flour and sugar intake,” says Teta. sanitize, but carefully. many antibacterial liquid hand soaps contain triclosan, which may alter your gut bacteria, accord­ ing to a missouri Western State University study. “Plain old soap and hot water will get the job done just fine,” says Teta. Pick up that pickle. Fermented foods such as pickled vegetables, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, yogurt, and kefir all help boost beneficial bacteria and support digestion, says Teta, and you only need a few bites of these foods three to five times a week . be more mindful of how you eat. mom is right: Sit comfort­ ably, eat slowly, chew well, and don’t talk with your mouth full. “a relaxed state helps your body optimally digest your food,” she says. “you’ll also experience less gas and bloating because you will swallow less air than you do when you eat on the run—and that benefits everyone.” —Colleen Oakley may 25, 2014 | 7

O

n Memorial Day 2004, Travis Manion, a newly commissioned Marine officer, went to cheer on his roommate and best friend, Brendan Looney, at the national lacrosse championship in Baltimore. It was an emotional afternoon. Three days earlier, both men had graduated from the United States Naval Academy, and now they expected to be deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. “You

The sacrifice, [which] you have learned by now, is part of the job description.” Then, as today, we were a nation at war. That made Navy the sentimental favorite in the final against Syracuse University. Travis sat with his classmates. His parents sat with Brendan’s parents. Rain

T

he friendship that formed at the Naval Academy between Brendan and Travis surprised nobody. Both were accomplished athletes: Travis wrestled and Brendan played football ­before switching to lacrosse. Both had wicked comic sides. And both loved their country and believed in sacrifice. Brendan came from a large, close-knit Catholic family from Owings, Md. Of the six siblings,

all three brothers attended the Naval Academy and even played on the lacrosse team at the same time. The oldest, Brendan was a hulk: 200 muscular pounds and “chiseled like a Greek god,” says Ben Mathews, who played football with him there. And driven, always, to excel. “He did not spend a whole lot of time talking about things. He spent most of [his] time trying to outplay and outmuscle everybody. Brendan never, ever wanted to look like

he was outperformed.” Travis grew up Catholic, too. His father, Tom Manion, a ­retired colonel, spent 30 years in the ­Marine Corps, and Travis and his older sister ­Ryan were born at Camp Lejeune, N.C. The family moved around before settling in Doylestown, Pa. ­Travis was a “warrior-poet,” says Mathews. He kept on his desk a box of note cards on which he copied inspirational lines. “There were quotes from books, quotes from movies, about teamwork and leadership.” When Mathews asked about the cards, Manion said, “I take a little bit of ­everything that I read and try to incorporate that in my life.” Once Travis and Brendan became friends, they did almost everything together. Naval Academy roommates live in such cramped quarters, often they want to be apart during free time. Not Travis and Brendan. They spent weekends together at the Manions’ Annapolis house. Travis visited the Looneys for Thanksgiving, then described to his parents the happy cacophony of a large family dinner. Both sets of parents celebrated Brendan’s lacrosse victories at postgame ­tailgate parties. Travis even joined Brendan on some of his dates— as when Brendan took Amy to see the movie Mean Girls. Amy enjoyed listening to two grown men laugh through a chick flick: “They weren’t too cool to watch a girls’ movie,” she says. The duo didn’t gush about their friendship. “Alpha males don’t talk about how close they

pounded the field as the lead flipped back and forth, with Navy’s fans chanting ­“U-S-A.” The teams were tied with five minutes to go. Then Syracuse pulled ahead and won, 14–13. While most of Navy’s players hit the bars of nearby Annapolis, the two close friends—along with Brendan’s brother Steve and future wife Amy—retreated to a house that Travis’s parents owned near campus. Brendan and Travis weren’t the type of guys who talked openly about their feelings. But Brendan privately confessed how gloomy he felt about the loss, and Travis knew his buddy needed a boost. So he put on a cowboy hat and a camouflage poncho and cranked up a Michael Jackson tune. Looking ridiculous, he and Brendan’s brother began breakdancing in the kitchen. “Brendan and I were laughing,” recalls Amy Looney. ­“Travis was putting on his extra charm. He was trying to do what he could to cheer up his best friend.” Everyone’s spirits rose until they were ready to join the rest of the team for a night of ­carousing in town. Taking over the back of a downtown bar, they celebrated having made it to the national championship for the first time in decades—and, for the graduates among them, surviving the rigors of the Naval Academy. Though it was unspoken, they knew that much of their class would soon be going off to war. That night in Annapolis, remembers Amy, “was the last hurrah.”

are,” says classmate Brian Stann. But they gave nonverbal cues— like the way they’d break into ­simultaneous laughter even if no one had said anything funny. They often expressed their bond through “japing,” or teasing. “Every time I walked into that room, some prank was going on,” Mathews says. Travis would good-naturedly taunt Brendan, for example, when his younger brothers outshone him on the lacrosse field. “Both were textbook ‘guy’s guys’: the ribbing, the constant making fun of each other,” Mathews says. “That’s the way they shared affection.” And always they competed, whether in sports or playing video games. Just before Travis left for Marine officer training in Quantico, Va., a summer-afternoon bike ride turned into a frenzied race down a mountain

trail that left another friend, a star lacrosse player, behind. (Brendan declared victory; ­Travis accused him of cheating.) Underneath the boyish competition, their loved ones saw something deeper: Each was tacitly encouraging the other to ­improve. “They pushed each ­other,” says Travis’s sister, Ryan Manion Borek. “When you look back, you see the development of them becoming men.” he first to deploy was Travis. His first tour, which began in 2005 in Iraq, kept him mostly on the base. “He would get so frus­ trated,” says Stann. “He had all these friends from the Naval ­Academy taking casualties and getting wounded. He wanted to be a war fighter.” Travis got his wish during his second tour, when he joined a team that helped train Iraqi fighters. Assigned to the insurgent hotbed of Fallujah, he crawled through rubble after a bombing to free two trapped Iraqi soldiers—and then, 10 days later, raced through chlorine gas to the roof of a crumbling barracks to ­relieve his fellow Marines after a chemical attack. “Travis was always ­willing to go to where the fire was most intense,” says Eric Greitens, who served with him. In April 2007, while patrolling Fallujah’s Andaloos district, ­Travis’s U.S. team found themselves separated from their Iraqi allies and surrounded by the ­enemy. After two Marines were

T

shot, Travis moved into harm’s way to draw fire away from the injured as they received treatment. As he loaded his g­ renade launcher, a sniper’s bullet pierced his side. His fellow ­Marines administered first aid but couldn’t save his life. He was 26. Brendan was beginning Navy SEAL training in San Diego when he learned of Travis’s death. The task of breaking the news fell to classmate and fellow SEAL Rob Sarver. “Brendan walked away, interlaced his fin-

gers in back of his head, and took a deep breath,” Sarver says. “He was overwhelmed with grief. When he got on my phone with his family and Amy, he was having trouble getting words out.” Unable to attend Travis’s ­funeral, Brendan threw himself harder into his military prepara-

tion. “It suddenly became very defined for Brendan,” says ­Sarver. “It wasn’t just a four-mile run anymore, or a two-mile swim, or any of the physical or academic challenges that we had to go through during SEAL training. Everything was, ‘I’m doing this because I lost Travis.’ ” Partway through his training, Amy visited Brendan in California. On their second night ­together, he knelt on the beach and proposed. “Life is short,” he said. “Just look at what happened to Trav. I don’t want us to have any regrets.” When they wed in July 2008, during a portrait ­session with his g­ roomsmen, Brendan asked Tom Manion to stand in for his son. Six months after Manion’s death, Brendan flew to Washington, D.C., to run the Marine Corps Marathon in his friend’s honor. Speaking at a banquet the night before, he called Travis “another brother to me” and told a story about a trip they took to Texas. His lip quivered and his voice cracked. By the end, he stopped trying to hold back the tears. “He was a great friend,” Brendan said. “I miss him.”

I

n June 2008, Brendan finished SEAL training. Two days after his wedding he was deployed to Iraq, then Afghanistan. He wore a bracelet bearing Travis’s name and tried to live up to his legacy. “I can’t think of anyone you’d want more next to you in a fight,” Sarver says. In Afghanistan, Brendan was assigned to continued on page 14

Sunday With...

PARADE Your favorite meal, your mother’s Sunday roast, is in the book. You dreamed about it during games. Sunday dinner after church was very special; my entire family would be there. When I look back, it was a big influence on me.

The book also features another favorite: your wife Ruth’s ­carrot cake. I never had carrot cake until we married. Ruth’s are the best I’ve ever eaten. I also have a strong ­attachment to the peppermint ice

To get the recipes for Ryan’s wife’s carrot cake and his mother’s Sunday roast, go to parade.com/ryan.

the day is in the evening when the sun’s setting. I also like getting up in the morning and seeing the calves with their moms nursing. Legend has it you soaked your arm in pickle juice. When I was a youngster, I cut the end of my thumb off on my right hand, and cut my second and middle fingers bad, so I was prone to blisters. The trainer for the Mets suggested I soak my fingers in pickle brine. That toughened the skin, but where the scar tissue was, it would [still] blister. We figured out if I took a scalpel and trimmed my finger down to the point it was almost too tender, there was nothing left to blister. I did that my entire career.

Nolan Ryan

The pitching legend turned cattleman on ranch life, Little League memories, and the best cake he’s ever eaten cream recipe that’s in there. It goes back to my childhood and the excitement of making homemade ice cream. We made it with the old hand crank. You’ve been married 46 years. What’s the secret (aside from great cake)? My family enjoyed the baseball lifestyle, and Ruth was very ­supportive of me playing. I really thought that at 32 or 33, I’d be out of the game. [But] our kids didn’t ­resent baseball and me traveling, because we made it part of our family life and included them.

In the book, your daughter Wendy says, “Spending time at our ranch was our most precious family time.” We would spend Thanksgiving and Christmas at the ranch, sit out by the fire pit at night. We had farm ponds stocked with fish. I don’t remember if it was [my son] Reid’s 11th or 12th birthday, but I asked him what he wanted. And he said, “I want to take my friends to the ranch.” I got another dad and we took about 10 little boys over there. Everybody caught a bunch of fish, and we had a fish fry. My favorite time of

You were an All-Star even in Little League in Texas. It’s amazing how [basically] the only picture of me as a kid was my Little League picture. I was the last of six kids; my parents didn’t have a lot of money. And when they took the All-Star pictures that day, I remember my mother asked how much a picture was. A dollar fifty. You pitched a record seven nohitters. How hard is that to do? I also have 12 one-hitters, so I know what disappointment is. I’ve taken no-hitters into the ninth and lost them. Until you get all 27 outs, you haven’t ­accomplished anything.

ore than 20 years after his retirement, Nolan Ryan’s name is still ­s y n o n y m o u s w i t h the str ikeout: The 67-­year-old Texan recorded more than anyone in history (5,714). This month, Ryan releases The Nolan Ryan Beef & Barbecue Cookbook, recipes that tell stories about his other passion: his ­second life as a cattleman. Ryan, who has been raising cattle since he was a boy, bought his first ranch more than 40 years ago. “I took my World Series money from the ’69 Mets and invested it in a piece of ­property, and that was my first step,” Ryan tells ­Justin Heckert. Today, the Hall of Famer has about 1,200 ­Beefmaster-breed cattle on four different ranches in Texas.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant

Where do storm drains lead? —S. B., Redlands, Calif. With spring rains upon us, it’s a good time to note that storm drains usually do not lead to wastewater treatment facilities (the way sanitary sewer systems do), as many people assume. The purpose of these drains is to prevent flooding of streets by quickly trans­ ferring rainwater to natural bodies of water, so they lead to watersheds, streams, rivers, lakes, oceans, etc. This means that the pollutants that also go down those drains foul our natural waterways. Con­ taminants include motor oil, detergents such as soap from washing your car, dumped gallons of paint, fertilizer and pesticides that run off from your lawn, pet waste in the gutter, lawn debris, and more. You should never pour anything into a storm drain.

In September 2010, Brendan had one more mission: observing the village of Ayatalah from above as an operation was carried out. “Can’t wait to get home,” he wrote Amy. But en route to Ayatalah, his helicopter crashed, killing him and eight other service members. As the reality of her husband’s death slowly sunk in, Amy was plagued by an insistent thought: Brendan needed to be reunited with Travis at Arlington National Cemetery. “I didn’t want Brendan to be alone,” she says. Travis’s family had buried him near their Pennsylvania home. But he had once told his sister that he wanted to be buried in Arlington if he died in combat. “Amy is right,” Travis’s mother, Janet, told her husband. “We can bring Brendan and Travis back together.” And they did. On Sept. 27, three days before Brendan was laid to rest, Travis’s body was disinterred and moved 150 miles to Arlington National Cemetery. The following May, President Obama singled them out in his Memorial Day address. “The friendship between 1st Lt. Travis Manion and Lt. Brendan Looney reflects the meaning of Memorial Day,” he said during a visit to their graves. “Brotherhood. Sacrifice. Love of country.” Today their relationship continues through their families. Amy works for the Travis Manion Foundation, which is run by Travis’s sister Ryan Manion Borek and helps returning vets acclimate to life back home through mentorship programs. The two women have become close. Travis’s mother died of lung cancer in 2012, but his father, Tom, sees Brendan’s parents several times a year. This month, a book coauthored by Tom about Travis and Brendan’s friendship was published. It is appropriately titled Brothers Forever. Even today, friends and family have trouble grasping the fact that the two are gone. Still, they take comfort in knowing they will rest forever side by side. “I’m grateful,” says their classmate Mathews, “that these two guys, who challenged themselves and each other—now they can jape each other for eternity.”

very time I step to the lectern to deliver a college commencement address, I’m reminded that I’m getting older while the crowd in front of me remains young and more than a little restless. Most graduation speakers hope to be wise and memorable. I aim for relief. My goal is to leave ­everyone in the room feeling just a bit calmer by the time I leave the lectern. Skip the applause and give me a collective, “Whew.” That would make my week. We may not be the same age, those young people and I, but this wasn’t always so. Once upon a time I, too, was a recent graduate, and wound tighter than a D ­ uncan Yo-Yo over the state of my unknowable future. Where would I work? Where would I live? How much money would I make in five years, 10 years, 20 years? Who would After all the pomp and circumstance, I marry?

A stranger smiles at me for no reason, and my own face softens. I pick up a tiny mitten dropped near my parked car, and see the long-ago faces of my children when they still thought I knew everything. My dog nuzzles my hand off the keyboard, and I suddenly notice the sunny outdoors waiting for both of us to play. All of this happened just yesterday. Lucky me. But let’s talk about you, dear graduate. Life is hard, yes, and mighty uncertain, but signs of hope abound.
