STUFF WE LIKE On the forefront of Blu-Ray player innovation, the BD390 comes equipped with WIFI, allowing you to connect to internet movie streaming services such as Netflix and VuDu. With all these features you’d think this bad boy would cost you an arm and a leg, but a $350 price tag makes the BD390 one of the most available Blu-Ray players on the market!

iPAD, iFAIL?

Hook Champ

HIT L IST

A

pple’s “latest creation” is the internet’s most anticipated (and over-hyped) product since the iPhone’s debut in 2007. The mythical Apple “Tablet” is rumored to have been in the works since 2003, and the iPhone was actually an offshoot of the technology that happened to be market-ready first. The blogging / commenting / tweeting geek community collectively held so many lofty expectations for the device that it was inevitable the actual iPad has been almost universally labeled “Fail.” And to be honest, the name itself leaves it open to ridicule (insert feminine hygiene joke here). There is a respected minority, however, that see where Apple is going with this new category of portable computing, and “get it.” The rest of the unwashed masses can only see what’s apparently “missing” in this first generation release: no front facing camera, no multitasking, no Adobe Flash support. We at The Wave see the potential this device has; its true value will be in the next generation of iPad applications, and we’re willing to bet all the complainers and naysayers will eventually find themselves in line to buy one or two. Personally, we can’t wait to sift through back issues of The Wave Magazine on this nifty little device!

KING OF THE SWING

re you looking for a fun and addicting casual game for your iPhone? Then look no further than Rocketcat Games’ Hook Champ. Hook Champ is a fun 8-bit adventure 6

THEWAVEMAG.COM FEBRUARY 316, 2010

through maze-like races in an attempt to collect gold coins while trying to outrun monsters. The game’s swing mechanic is very reminiscent of classics to the likes of Activision’s Pitfall! and Capcom’s Bionic Commando, which makes understanding and mastering the controls incredibly easy. Imaginative level design, a quirky sense of humor and quick-tap swinging all contribute to Hook Champ being the must-have game.

THIS AIN’T YOUR GRANDMA’S BLU-RAY!

H

ome entertainment has become so much more than the simple act of popping in a movie. Now it’s all about having the freedom to see what you want when you want it. LG’s new Blu-Ray player, the BD390, comes chock full of nifty features to view your favorite media, ranging from silly pictures on your digital camera to dogs barking Christmas tunes on YouTube.

ow many times have you repeatedly said “I really need to get an external storage system for my computer?” And then, instead of following through, you knowingly “forget” all about it and put it off? Okay, now fast forward. Your computer takes a crap and you lose ALL your photos, music, docs and videos of little Bobby’s first birthday. Now imagine this horrible scenario: You DO go out and buy the external hard drive and then get hit by a fire or burglury. You’re still SOL, right? This is where Carbonite comes to the rescue (but you have to go and get it now!). It offers offsite storage for everything important. All you have to do is install Carbonite’s application on your computer and everything on your computer will automatically be saved to a storage facility, where it will be safe and sound.

trainer at Evolution Trainers in Mountain View who has trained numerous Silicon Valley professionals (including vice presidents and CFOs of Intel and HP/Agilent), was kind enough to offer some advice on how to pack on some muscle, and to school us on why it’s not always recommended.

HE A LTH & BE AUT Y

Putting on weight is more difficult than shedding pounds, D’Epiro says, and people wanting to add muscle often end up just adding fat. D’Epiro sometimes advises against putting on weight, particularly the amount of weight associated with bodybuilders. That trend, he warns, is highly unhealthy and extremely taxing on the body. The overeating, overload of protein and chemical enhancements can lead to kidney problems and other medical issues. “The reality is, someone who is slender, who has been slender their entire life, that’s the way their body and muscles were designed,” D’Epiro says. “So trying to change that may not be the best idea. The other thing is that sooner or later, everyone wants to lose weight. As you age, if you’ve been skinny your whole life, you may get ragged on when you’re younger, but once you get older, say when you’re 80, you suddenly become a phenomenon and healthier than the average Joe.” The waif look is undeniably out of style. But so is the ridiculous bodybuilder look. A happy medium is ideal. Nowadays, women are sporting toned muscles, especially arms (Madonna, Michelle Obama), while men prefer a trim physique with chiseled pectorals and abdominals (Mathew McConaughey, Brad Pitt). Just be sure not to overdo it (Helga on American Gladiators, Hugh Jackman in the new Wolverine film). It’s advisable to consult a personal trainer, but here are a few tips from D’Epiro:

THE SKINNY ON (NOT BEING) SKINNY Why some of us could stand to pack on a few pounds.

O

ver the years, the fitness industry seems to have developed an incessant focus on losing weight. TV is awash with commercials featuring the ubiquitous skinny person tugging at the waist of their old “fat” pants to

18

THEWAVEMAG.COM FEBRUARY 316, 2010

show how much weight they’ve lost. And while trim is certainly in, what about those who are tired of shopping in the kids section to find jeans that fit? What about those who are actually trying to gain weight in order to reach an aesthetic physique described as something other than “lanky,” “sticklike” or “string bean”?

Time under tension formula: Basically, you want to find out how much weight you can lift eight to 12 times in at least 45 seconds. This will optimize your workout. If you blast through a workout, you won’t see adequate results. Do some trial and error lifts to find out what weight you are comfortable with that adheres to the time under tension formula.

Whether it’s to tone muscle, increase flexibility, build strength and size, or to simply prevent physical injuries, training intelligently is the only way to maximize your body’s potential. Pete D’Epiro, a personal

Duration: Only work out for an hour per day, three times a week, with a day of rest in between. After an hour, D’Epiro says, the body doesn’t have any more energy to sup20 port the workout.

Diet: Typically, adding more protein is suggested, but D’Epiro says that Americans eat too much protein to begin with, so this may not be needed. Adding anywhere from 250 to 500 more calories a day is a good way to put on some size.

18

Stick with it: Who hasn’t started a workout routine, only to have it disappear entirely after skipping just one day? Before you know it, you’re covered in potato chip crumbs and wondering how you got so flabby again, promising to start working out the following morning. Don’t get frustrated if you don’t see results right away. Just focus on making it a regular part of your weekly routine. Stay away from analyzing your body in the mirror every day. If you still can’t stick with it, get a personal trainer. Most people, D’Epiro says, recognize the importance of a trainer and often see results in a couple of months, causing them to realize that they need to stick with a personal trainer to keep up their routine. A good personal trainer in Silicon Valley will run you about $65 - $100 an hour.

HEALTH & BEAUTY F E AT U R I N G So what exactly do raw foodies eat? In short, a lot of vegetables, seeds and nuts, none of which can be cooked over about 116 degrees Fahrenheit. “Raw, live food is food that hasn’t been heated above 118 degrees – some say 120, others say 115,” explains local raw food proponent Patti Searle, founder and chef of Thrivin’ Edibles (www. thrivinedibles.com). Besides preparing and delivering raw meals and snacks to South Bay residents, Thrivin’ Edibles produces a line of HuuRaw savory chips that is available at many local grocery stores.

Searle became a raw food fan upon discovering it at a health retreat. After two weeks on a raw regime, she says she not only had more energy, and clearer skin, but lost 15 pounds without effort. Then “I came home and kept eating raw, and lost another 15 pounds in 30 days,” recalls Searle.

HE A LTH & BE AUT Y

The big advantage to raw food, its advocates assert, is that food contains enzymes that are destroyed when heated over about 115 degrees F, and that many vitamins and minerals in food are also destroyed during the cooking process. “The prevailing thought is that anything over 130 degrees definitely destroys all the enzymatic action. And it’s the enzymes in food that actually help your body digest it,” Searle explains. “When you kill those by heating it too high (and 130 degrees is actually a really low temperature), your body has to work really hard to digest the food – and over 130 degrees, you start destroying vitamins and minerals. That’s the thought behind ‘why raw, why live?’ – you keep all that alive.” While scientists often refute these claims, raw food fans clearly seem to be the picture of health, reporting increased 22

energy, improved digestion, mental clarity, glowing skin, and all-around good health. “I feel good, I am over 50 and I don’t take any medication at all,” Searle reveals. “And it cut all my menopausal symptoms completely.” Some believe the diet can also help prevent cancers, heart disease, and other more serious illnesses. The raw tag can often be misleading, in the sense that while they aren’t cooked, foods can be dehydrated – which means products such as bread and cookies can still be made “raw.” It just takes time. “We dehydrate the cookies, and other desserts,” Searle explains. “Typically it takes 12-24 hours.” Bowls of raw soup, too, aren’t exactly hot and steaming. “Heating them above 120 degrees does sort of ruin the point of eating raw,” she notes. “Now, if someone were to put the soup in a dehydrator, covered, before eating it, that would warm it gently, which would then keep the soup live.” Having already worked as a chef in what she refers to as the “cooking world” while in her 20s, Searle learned the tricks of the raw cooking trade by taking a course at the Living Light Culinary Arts Institute in Fort Bragg, Calif., something of a learning mecca for raw gourmands. In November 2006, she began preparing raw meals under the Thrivin’ Edibles banner for a few friends. Via word of mouth, Thrivin’ Edibles now delivers meals to about 200 people three times a week. The company also caters events, and has plans to develop further lines for retail sale, including raw/vegan Patti’s Patties. Searle also hopes to have her raw cuisine served a la carte in delis and cafés. Searle’s food delivery business is tailor-made for people 24 who want to go raw but

lack the inclination to do all the food prep required. She’s fond of quoting Santa Monica raw chef Matt Amsden, who quips “We don’t cook so you don’t have to.” But while going raw is what she calls a “total paradigm shift,” Searle is quick to point out that maintaining a raw diet is not as difficult or finicky as people imagine. “One of my clients said, ‘All that shopping and all that chopping, I don’t wanna do that,’” she laughs, though she adds that except for dehydrated items, raw food does not take any more time to prepare than cooked meals. “As a matter of fact, they take less because you just make them and then eat them. You don’t need to wait 15 minutes or three hours for them to cook.”

22

If a diet consisting largely of raw nuts, seeds and vegetable matter sounds bland, restrictive, even monastic, a quick scan of Searle’s list of raw cuisine reveals otherwise: Oriental noodle delight (the noodles are made using scallions, cabbage, celery, red peppers and bean sprouts); crimini mushrooms stuffed with walnut tomato pâté; pad thai (again, noodles come in vegetable form; here it’s zucchini and cucumber); a spinach and cashew quiche layered with ribbons of red bell peppers and carrots; zucchini, rosemary and onion bread – the delicious list of options goes on.

And if you think that raw food equals dessert deprivation, think again: a selection of brownies, cookies, mousses, puddings and cakes are sweet (thanks to agave nectar), chocolaty (courtesy of raw cacao) and perfectly indulgent. Now that’s hot.

TANNING BED/BOOTH In either a stand-up (booth) or lay-down (bed) tanning machine, ultraviolet rays (UVA and/or UVB) are emitted by bright lights. These rays mimic the effect of the sun and darken the skin. UVB rays can damage the skin; UVA rays are thought to be less harmful. Most modern tanning beds use primarily UVA.

n a recent episode of Oprah, actress and singer Beyoncé Knowles mentioned that she’d recently lost 20 pounds in 10 days. When an astounded Oprah asked how she’d achieved this feat, Knowles confessed that she’d done a “master cleanse.” It sounds like a housecleaning ritual foisted on us by Martha Stewart, but the “master cleanse” is actually a fasting technique that has been around for 30 years. The program was originally presented in Stanley Burroughs’ The Master Cleanser in 1976, and is most currently espoused in Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days by Peter Glickman (who cautions in the first few pages that he is “not a licensed health professional”). Also known as the Lemonade Diet, the 10-to-40-day regime is touted as the closest you can get to a colonic without the tube, promising to clean out all the internal debris that drags us down on a daily basis. 30

HEALTH & BEAUTY F E AT U R I N G How does it do this? Let’s just say there’s a lot of time spent close to your toilet. The program involves drinking an herbal laxative tea nightly, drinking one quart of salt water every morning, and subsisting for nutrition on a special lemonade: a mix of fresh-squeezed lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water.

28

The practice clearly goes against the grain of the Western medical tradition, which makes it nothing if not controversial. Proponents of the master cleanse, however, claim that by giving the digestive system a break and increasing the circulation, the body is able to release and flush toxins stored in the GI tract and lymph nodes. Melissa Golden, a registered nurse, takes issue with this claim. “We know the lymph system is responsible for filtering and destroying harmful substances that invade the body,” she says, “but [a cleanse] won’t necessarily make that happen. There is no substitute for a consistently healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, and getting adequate exercise to stay healthy.” This echoes what health professionals have recommended for decades.

HE A LTH & BE AUT Y

Golden also emphasizes that while there can be material that remains in the GI tract because it isn’t as reactive to digestive enzymes, it usually would only cause minor blockages that are moved through the body naturally, although more slowly. Only rarely do healthy people need medical attention for this. As far as whether this fast can aid in cleaning the colon, she laughed, “I’m not saying it wouldn’t work to clear things out if you’re taking a laxative and drinking lots of water, but it’s not healthy.” Golden strongly opposes the idea that

30

THEWAVEMAG.COM FEBRUARY 316, 2010

[ C O N T. ]

fasting is a healthy practice, much less a necessary one. Still, there must be something to be said for the perceived, if not proven, benefits of this practice. There is no doubt that Beyoncé achieved her goal “to make a physical transformation.” And she isn’t the only one. Robin Quivers, famous for being Howard Stern’s sidekick, lost a reported 70 pounds after following the master cleanse at least three times in a year. Holistic nutritionalist Sylvie Nalezny of Lite for Life in Willow Glen says, “People get excited about dropping weight quickly and detoxing, which can happen,” she assures, “but first you need to build up your body.” Lite for Life always recommends a permanent diet that revolves around promoting a stable blood sugar level and a calorie intake of no less than 1,200 calories each day due to the possible counterproductive side effects. “Undergoing an extended fast or very low-calorie diet with no protein may lead to the breakdown of muscle mass and a lower resting metabolic rate,” Nalezny cautions. These problems, which actually prevent permanent weight loss, are especially likely for those who have been yo-yo dieters in the past. Nalezny was also quick to point out that fasting can have positive effects when there is a healthy diet already in place. “People should do it,” she says, provided they consult a physician first. As for how you feel while undergoing the cleanse, Beyoncé is quoted as saying, “I felt grumpy.” No surprise. When a Grammy-winning vocalist with a growing film career gets low blood sugar, even Oprah had better watch out. 32

SWEDISH MASSAGE When most people think of professional massage, this is what they are picturing: long, smooth strokes and kneading on the outermost layers of muscle. Usually done with oil or lotion, it’s the most gentle of the massage styles.

SHIATSU MASSAGE Unlike the flat-palmed Swedish massage, the Japanese-influenced shiatsu massage utilizes the strength of the practitioner’s fingers as they rhythmically locate and apply deep pressure to acupressure hot spots. While the massage is firm, it is generally slow and also relaxing.

THAI MASSAGE While you will leave a Thai massage feeling as relaxed and loose as any other style, don’t just expect to lie there in peace while 32

REFLEXOLOGY MASSAGE To the untrained eye, reflexology is simply an hour-long foot massage. But to the expert applying the technique, the foot is a map of the entire body, and by using various techniques and pressure points, nonfoot ailments can be relieved. Have a sore neck? The masseuse may spend extra time on your big toe. Aching joints? A hard squeeze on the heel may do the trick. To the uninitiated, it sounds pretty hokey – but this is among the most requested (and most relaxing) treatments available.

SPORTS MASSAGE

You don’t have to be a professional athlete to enjoy sports massage. This is a firmer, more aggressive version of Swedish massage that pays specific attention to those muscles most used in athletic activity. This style is also used by those recovering from an injury, or just looking to prevent recurring ones.

ubbing crushed fruit onto your face is said to have many benefits, and makes for a simple and fun at-home facial. We created our own facemasks using the following fruits. These are the results. (For all masks, dab the mixture on your wrist first, then wait 24 hours to check for skin allergies.)

AVOCADO Benefits: Contains vitamins A, B, D, and E Method: Applied to face and let dry. Result: Skin felt soft and smooth. Also delicious.

BANANA (Do not use overripe bananas!)

Benefits: Contains potassium, calcium and phosphorus Method: Mashed, applied, and left on face for 10 minutes. Result: Skin felt soft and smooth.

As the name suggests, several smooth, flat stones of varying sizes are heated and then placed over your back, arms, legs, and other regions the masseuse needs to loosen up. The result is a deep heat that turns muscles to jelly. Most massage styles can also add hot stones to the routine by request.

SPA DO’S AND DON’TS

W

e asked the expert technicians at Ayoma LifeSpa about etiquette, conduct and ways to get the most out of your spa experience.

DO:

DON’T:

Tip. It’s customary to leave 15 to 20 percent for any personalized service. Gift certificates don’t generally include gratuity. When in doubt, ask.

Wear heavy perfumes or deodorants. Some therapists have allergies or are sensitive to overbearing fragrances.

Shower before your treatment. Though your massage therapist will likely use scented oils and such, nothing can cover a day’s worth of mountain biking. And bring stuff for your post-shower treatment, too.

Bring babies or toddlers. Apparently, this isn’t obvious.

Turn off your cell phone. The only place more inappropriate for a mobile phone would be a funeral.

Be afraid to get naked. Clothing is optional, of course. But a trained professional knows how to maintain your privacy while having access to those glutes and lower back (spots clothing usually covers).

HE A LTH & BE AUT Y

Communicate with your therapist. Tell them where it hurts, and where you’d like more or less pressure throughout the treatment. Don’t get bossy; just don’t be shy. Relax. Massage and meditation are soul mates. Go ahead, fall asleep.

Assume it’s okay to not show up. Space and time are reserved for you, and cost the spa money if you flake.

Show up drunk. Massage is a detoxifying treatment. Don’t mix the two. Eat a heavy meal before your treatment. This will only make your body work harder at breaking down toxins.

Hydrate. Massage breaks up toxins. Drinking water before and after your treatment will help your body’s natural elimination process. Check for other amenities. Some spas have hot tubs and steam rooms for guest use. It’d be a shame if they went to waste. Use the restroom before your treatment. ’Nuff said.

SWEET CEVICHE

When it comes to seafood this spring, what’s hot is cold.

I

t might be one of the Bay Area’s most sought-after spring starters, but trying to nail down the origins and fundamentals of ceviche (pronounced se-VEECH-eh, also spelled cebiche or seviche) is like trying to nail raw fish to a wall. What local chefs, devoted foodies, seafood and Nuevo Latinolovers know is this: Ceviche is an age-old Latin American dish that involves marinating seafood in citric juices so that it “cooks.” The fresh seafood (or fish, or even meat in

40

THEWAVEMAG.COM FEBRUARY 316, 2010

some brave cases) becomes white and firm and is basically “cleaned” of bacteria by the citric acid and then served chilled. It’s not exactly sashimi, but it’s close. It tastes of the sea. The facts end there. The rest – what type of fish or seafood to use, which fruit to squeeze, what spice, crunchy vegetables or accompaniments to serve on or alongside – is anyone’s guess. The rulebook on ceviche seems lost to history, along with the history of the dish itself. Most experts agree the process originated in Peru – some say by Inca fishermen, others claim by Arabian or even Japanese immigrants – but as ceviche spread regionally throughout South and Central

America, additional ingredients varied from corn to celery to tomato juice, hot peppers and even ketchup. Traditional sides also differ wildly – you might enjoy ceviche with sweet potatoes and corn on the cob in Peru, but in Ecuador or Honduras you’ll munch on it with a big side of popcorn. Ceviche pairs perfectly with warm-weather margaritas… or after too many of them. Its leftover dregs of juice, spice, vegetable and tangy seafood essences comprise an oldworld elixir known as “tiger’s milk” – known in Latin America for centuries as a miracle hangover cure. So eat, drink and be merry. Repeat as necessary.

WHITE TRUFFLES

At over a grand per pound, white truffles throw a curve ball at the phrase “feast or famine.”

E

ating a white truffle is one of those exalted dining experiences reserved, because of risk of arrest, death or poverty, solely for professional gluttons. For the cost of one pound of these “tartufo bianco” (about $1,400 this season, down considerably from last year), you could fly to Paris, eat at a three-star restaurant and fly back. You could hire a sushi chef to filet you a fugu, that poisonous exotic fish that will either get you high for a couple hours or kill you. You could even bribe a French chef to smuggle in a tiny endangered songbird for consumption.

DINING

Now, when we talk about white truffles, we’re not talking about those round gobs of chocolate goo. We’re talking about a particular sort of mushroom that grows underground, around the base of oak trees in Northern Italy. It has a peculiar, unique, pungent aroma that is so strong it can be smelled by trained pigs and dogs. Black truffles are rare, but the white ones, oooh boy… they’re ten times as precious. They’re used in cooking either as a fragrant, decadent garnish or to slowly infuse a dish with their dramatic perfume. The price stays so high because no one has ever succeeded in artificially cultivating truffles that compare well with those naturally grown and foraged. The smell of a truffle is uncommonly heady. It’s peculiar enough to attract the nose of a pig or dog from above the ground. These animals want them, no, love them. They unearth them eagerly, only to be yoked back by their owners before they can devour the things. The funny thing about a white truffle, besides the cost, is that if you put a sliver in your mouth, it really doesn’t taste like much. It’s fibrous, sort of like dried coconut, and remarkably bland. 44 42

Mix some shavings into a risotto, or shave a few slivers onto a hot dish with complementary aromas, though, and the smell of the truffles will saturate the whole room. When you buy white truffles, you don’t pay for the flavor, you pay for the smell; white truffles smell lustily earthy and nutty with lemony citrus and gardenia-sweet overtones.

42

When white truffles turn, they become mushy and bland overnight. If that happens to a chef, he’s out about a grand unless he knows how to shake a cleaver very convincingly. White truffles are a serious game – not for the faint of heart or light of wallet.

GARLIC IS GOD

Why the “stinking rose” is worth celebrating.

G DINING

arlic has a long history. The ancient Egyptians fed garlic to pyramid-building slaves to increase stamina. In fact, the Egyptians believed in it so much, they placed clay models of garlic bulbs in the tomb of Tutankhamen. The French word for garlic, thériaque des pauvres (theriac of the poor), reflects the ancient belief in garlic as a panacea. In the Middle Ages, an expensive and complicated mixture of exotic ingredients called “theriac” was believed to be extremely powerful against every kind of illness (snake bite, bone fracture, venereal disease, etc.). Thirteenth century plaguefearing Europeans thought theriac could cure the epidemic. That was, at best, wishful thinking; the plague wiped out 25 million people in five years. But modern studies confirm that garlic is good for you. Evidence of garlic’s medicinal properties harkened a gastronomic renaissance for this papery-skinned vegetable: It’s an antioxidant, reduces the risk of stomach and bladder cancer, lowers cholesterol, prevents blood clots, kills fungi and cures yeast infections. The list grows longer every year. So what are the secrets of the pungent bulb? When a garlic clove is cut, an enzyme within the plant cells combines with

an amino acid, creating a new compound called allicin. This compound kills at least 23 types of bacteria and 60 types of fungi. When garlic is heated, a different, theoretically beneficial compound – ajoene – forms. Experts disagree on whether fresh garlic or cooked is better. They also disagree on the recommended daily amount: some say one clove is plenty, others recommend up to 10. But they do agree that fresh garlic is better than a supplement.

HOW TO TEST THE TEMPERATURE OF MEAT

T

DINING

echnology may offer fancy alternatives for taking the temperature of meat but there’s a simpler solution. True masters of the grill have been preparing meat in accordance to an age-old system. To test your steak, poke your index finger directly into the center of the cut on the grill and measure it in accordance to the chart below.

RARE

MEDIUM

Press your index finger and thumb together like you’re making the “Okay” sign and feel the meat of your thumb below the second knuckle. If you want your grilled meat rare, it should feel just like that.

Pinch your ring finger and thumb together. It’s a bit firmer, isn’t it? That’s what you call “medium”.

MEDIUM RARE Squeeze your middle finger and thumb together. Now feel your thumb meat. That’s medium rare. Yum. *Source: Weber demonstration

EDIBLE APHRODISIACS Food guaranteed to start a fire.

Y

ou won’t believe some of the things men have had the nerve to bring to the table through the ages in an effort to get a honey to give it up. A bowl of green M&Ms is okay, but bull testicles? Sheep’s blood? Lizard flesh? Unless you’re vying for the Iron Chef title, or have easy access to hot tongs and a pasture, we suggest you lay off the When Animals Attack appearances and head to the grocery store instead. Here’s a list of slightly more practical ingredients to slip into her (or his) main course and hopefully kickstart the sheet-sliding. And while experts disagree on whether aphrodisiacs really increase your “amour,” it’s never a bad idea to add something new to the menu – especially for special occasions.

OYSTERS

DINING

Yes, it’s a cliché to pop a few of these onto a plate with a little garnish and a cock-eyed grin, but the Romans had it right. What says “sex” more than raw, slimy and open wide? The common theory was that these sea creatures resembled female genitalia, and the ancients reported maidens gyrating wantonly after sliding a few giant ones down their throats. They don’t call them Oysters Rocka-fella for nothing.

CHILI PEPPERS Hot, hot, hot. Just remember not to add too many of these to your dishes or it’ll be your ass in the hotseat as your intended downs a gallon of water and cusses you out. Ancient tribes used these to arouse passion and get the juices (tears, saliva, etc.) flowing. A red chili paste added to a fish dish or risotto, followed by a tall glass of milk, should have her steaming up your glasses in no time.

included in many pungent Thai dishes. It’s known to act as a sedative, lulling you both into love. But be warned: Excessive doses are said to cause uncontrollable laughter. That’s the last thing some of us want to hear in the bedroom later.

PINE NUTS Zinc is a key mineral that maintains male potency – a sort of natural Viagra – and pine nuts are loaded with it. Pine nut cookies and dark espresso for dessert have been rumored to give your sexual stamina a big boost. Enough of these fattening little treats and there’ll be plenty of both of you to enjoy, so indulge.

COCOA BEANS Chocolate is a drug, okay? Hardly anyone is able to resist the simultaneous buzz and feeling of relaxation that a rich dark piece of this caffeine-related substance can give you. When served with a superior vintage wine – well, you might as well just turn yourself in to the police right then and there, because you’re dealing in ecstasy. Sprinkle some cocoa beans, the “nourishment of the gods” as the Aztecs used to call them, over your valentine’s ice cream. Cover your naked bodies in a thick syrup and make your own banana split. Whatever floats your boats.

STRAWBERRIES Even skinny chicken lips can be made to look thick and luscious after a few of these velvety, ruby-red beauties. And if some of the sweet, sticky juice dribbles accidentally onto your shirt – well, you’ll just have to take it off, won’t you?

SAW PALMETTO

DINING

Here’s one for the health freaks. A little palm oil and he’ll be putty in your hands, due to the vigor-enhancing minerals it contains. It can also be taken in pill form. Saw Palmetto has been ascribed euphoric and healing properties, plus high amounts of estrogen, so he’ll see your side of things. It’s also said to make breasts grow larger, although that could just be the wine. TW

e think everyone remembers being dragged to Sears or JCPenney, kicking and screaming, to get yearly photos taken as kids. The ordeal usually consisted of being propped in front GoodEye Photography + Design of some country scene backdrop with maybe a barn or some preindustrial wooden bridge, as you were made to rest your arms awkwardly on a white fence. Thankfully things have changed, and they've changed for the better. You can now take advantage of studios and photographers who will use an artistic eye and natural settings to display emotion, personality and anything but annoying faces. Bring the whole family to get photographed, and be proud instead of embarrassed of your new photos.

The words "two bucks" are never associated with art, except in the case of Two Buck Tuesdays, that is. Kaleid Gallery hosts them every third Tuesday of the month, and they're awesome. Admission is free, and small pieces of one-of-a-kind, signed art are scattered throughout the gallery at $2 a pop. Tuesdays have never been so exciting! Expect to witness quirky speakers, music and live sketch artists. You're also invited to bring your art supplies to take a spot at the sketch table (first come, first serve) and to eat snacks! This all happens amongst the gallery's current art exhibits (which display pieces greater than $2, btw), ranging from paintings and drawings to pottery and jewelry. Check out the website for specifics on the next third Tuesday and for current exhibit info.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

D

o you hate the idea of your kids plopping down in front of the TV for a six-hour viewing session after school? You should, and for good reasons. For one, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unhealthy. And two: Silicon Valley offers a plethora of engaging and fun after school programs that little Bobby and Susie can benefit from. Believe us, the benefits of being in a social learning environment alone far outweigh anything that a cartoon can offer. Programs include language, math and science instruction and open classes just to help out with day-to-day homework. Here are but a few to choose from:

Kepler Learning Center, 305 Piercy Rd., San Jose (408) 363-0222 www.keplerlearningcenter.com Mad Science, Multiple locations (877) 390-5437 www.madscience.org/southbay Mathnasium, 2511 Winchester Blvd., Campbell (408) 374-6284 www.mathnasium.com

WAIT NO LONGER. LOOK NO FURTHER. ARRIVE AT AXIS.

N

o place showcases the benefits to downtown living quite like Axis, San Jose’s award-winning luxury high-rise, located in the best corner in the city’s hottest neighborhood next to historic Hotel De Anza. With more than 100 residents, Axis has become an urban oasis teaming with life. Now, with interest rates at historic lows, the recent availability of FHA loans and commuting an everincreasing burden, make it a New Year’s resolution to explore the perks of high-rise urban living. Start the tour at the Axis Sales Center. Check out the fitness center and resort-like pool area, the well-appointed model homes on the 12th floor and many magnificent penthouses – all overlooking San Jose and showcasing an exclusive glimpse into the urban living trend embracing the heart of Silicon Valley. This winter, tours are conducted daily, 10 am to 5 pm. When visiting Axis, discover art@axis, featuring 90 works of art by local artists, displayed in the lobby and model homes. Hundreds of people viewed the first collection, which helped attract more than 25 new home buyers at Axis during the past few months. A totally new collection is on display now, showcasing another cultural perk to living at Axis. It’s no surprise why an urban, cosmopolitan lifestyle appeals to so many people these days. Unlike other options, a full-service high-rise condominium is mostly maintenance-free. For a busy professional or empty-nester looking to simplify, more time can be spent doing the things one prefers, and less time on the things one doesn’t.

Condominium living allows a “lock-n-go” lifestyle with the freedom to jet away for the weekend at a moment’s notice and not worry about caring for the encumbrances of a big house or yard work. A home at Axis offers convenience at your doorstep, in every direction. Just west along The Alameda, discover shopping, entertainment and services, including a future Whole Foods, HP Pavilion and Caltrains. Meanwhile, Target and Trader Joe’s are a quick trip northwest, off Coleman, with the attractions of Santana Row just beyond. Nearby, enjoy fine restaurants such as LaPastaia, trendy nightspots, cultural attractions, Zanotto’s Downtown and the weekly Downtown Farmers’ Market at San Pedro Square. However, the real neig hborhood gem just might be the big “backyard” – the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens meandering a block away, enticing joggers, dog walkers and nature lovers. It’s an unbeatable setting with Axis at the heart of it. The Axis Sales Center is open daily this winter from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 38 N. Almaden Blvd. in downtown San Jose (next to the Hotel De Anza, off the Santa Clara St. exit from Guadeloupe Freeway).
