Feel like something has slammed on the brakes to your metabolism, are you fatigued, cold, achy, gaining weight and depressed. You’re sure there’s a physical explanation but your doctor tells you all tests are “normal.” Being called normal doesn’t help how you feel, there is something wrong; let’s take a wider look at the Thyroid and its functions. The usual approach in identifying thyroid function is to measure the pituitary hormone TSH and sometimes the thyroid prohormone T4. If the results are within the labs “normal” range the individual is told their ¿ne. However, to properly diagnose your condition a knowledgeable doctor must run at least these eight different thyroid tests. TSH, total T4, free T4, total T-3, free T3, reverse T-3 and thyroid antibody tests all determine if you have central hypothyroidism, peripheral hypothyroidism, under conversion hypothyroidism, reverse T-3 syndrome, or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Now, let’s take these conditions one at a time. Just like your automobile your body has a gas pedal (T3) and a brake (Reverse T3) that must be balanced properly for optimal function. It’s hard to get anywhere in life if you are always riding your brake pedal. OK follow me on this…Your thyroid naturally produces T4. This T4, whether produced by your thyroid or taken orally from medications such as Synthroid or Levothyroxine is biologically inactive; therefore your liver and kidneys must convert it into active T-3. This active T-3 is the gas pedal to your metabolic engine. If you are under converting T-4 to T-3 you won’t have enough gas delivery to your metabolism and thus you can have an often undiagnosed under conversion hypothyroidism. Conversely, if you have a gas pedal for your metabolism then you need a brake for your system. Your liver and kidneys also create this biological brake from T4, by producing a hormone called Reverse T-3. At certain times excessive amounts of ReverseT-3 can be produced from T-4, especially when your sick or under stress. Your body can also convert your prescription Synthroid or levothyroxine into too much Reverse T-3. This excessive Reverse T3 acts as a brake and blocks your active T-3 from binding to your cells and doing its job as the gas pedal. Symptoms of hypothyroidism then develop and can continue, even while TSH levels and T4 levels remain normal. You then have an undiagnosed Reverse T-3 syndrome Then there is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the most common cause of thyroid disease and autoimmune disorders in the US today. This condition is seven times more common in women than in men and frequently goes undiagnosed unless the right lab tests are run. It is triggered when antibodies from your immune system attack your thyroid. When your immune system attacks your thyroid it can decrease the thyroid’s hormone output. The antibodies in Hashimoto’s commonly arise from food allergies, mold exposure, chronic bacterial or virus infections that trigger the autoimmune response. Environmental chemicals and heavy metals can also trigger an autoimmune response that leads to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. To properly treat this disease the autoimmune triggers must be identi¿ed and removed. Gluten sensitivity is a very common trigger and is commonly undiagnosed. How does someone conquer the under conversion hypothyroidism, Reverse T-3 Syndrome and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis? Proper laboratory testing by a knowledgeable doctor is the only way to know what is causing your symptoms and how to heal them. And like many other doctors who practice functional medicine I have seen numerous patients with these disorders conquer them through a natural approach, without dangerous drugs. There is a better, safer way utilizing dietary and nutritional care! Dr. Greg Fors, DC, DIBCN, author of the best-selling book “Why We Hurt” is holding Workshops to explain Peripheral Hypothyroidism, Reverse T3 syndrome and Hashimoto’s disease. Dr. Greg Fors will reveal why you are still fatigued, cold, achy, gaining weight and depressed even though you’re on thyroid medication and your lab tests are “normal”. Dr. Fors will also discuss a natural care program that provides real healing for these conditions. Seating for Dr. Fors’ seminars is limited. It will be held on Monday, September 17th and Monday, October 1st at the Pain and Brain Healing Center 7:00 PM, and Wednesday, September 26th at the Northtown Library 6:30 PM. Please call 763-862-7100 to reserve a seat today and get directions for each location!

Pete Rose gets the 4,192nd hit of his career, breaking Ty Cobb’s major league record for career hits. Rose was a folk hero in Cincinnati, a homegrown talent known as “Charlie Hustle” for his relentless work ethic.

► On Sept. 13, 1814, Francis Scott Key pens a poem, which is later set to the music of a popular English drinking tune called “To Anacreon in Heaven.” In 1931 the song becomes America’s national anthem, “The StarSpangled Banner.” ► On Sept. 10, 1897, a 25-year-old London taxi driver named George Smith becomes the first person ever arrested for drunk driving. A true breath test didn’t come along until 1931 with a device called the Drunkometer. It involved a blow-up balloon and a tube filled with a purple fluid (potassium permanganate and sulfuric acid). Alcohol on a person’s breath changed the color of the fluid from purple to yellow; the quicker the change, the drunker the person. ► On Sept. 14, 1927, dancer Isadora Duncan is strangled in Nice, France, when the enormous silk scarf she is wearing gets tangled in the rear hubcaps of her open car. The scarf wound around the axle, tightening around Duncan’s neck and dragging her from the car.

► On Sept. 18, 1793, George Washington lays the cornerstone to the United States Capitol building. The building would take nearly a century to complete, as architects came and went, the British set fire to it, and it was called into use during the Civil War. ► On Sept. 21, 1938, a powerful Category 3 hurricane slams into Long Island and southern New England. Charlie Pierce, a junior forecaster in the U.S. Weather Bureau, was sure that the hurricane was heading for the Northeast, but the chief forecaster overruled him. All told, 700 people were killed by the hurricane. ► On Sept. 19, 1959, in one of the more surreal moments in the history of the Cold War, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev explodes with anger when he learns he cannot visit Disneyland. Government authorities feared that the crowds would pose a safety hazard.

“Give me a call” Travis Richter TRAVIS@ADVANCEDROOFINGMN.COM

“AS SEEN ON TV” (CONTINUED): • “She wore this dangling bead from the hinge of her glasses for about a year. She traveled to several foreign countries with it in, and people would literally stop her on the streets and ask her where she got this charm,” said Tedeschi. “My mom came to me and said, ‘You have to invent charms for glasses.’” • For Tedeschi, inventing the “Snap-It Screw” was the easy part. The difficult part was doing all the things necessary to produce and market her new invention. She had to set up patents all over the world. She had to set up a factory in China and a warehouse in Seattle, Washington. She had to spend countless hours marketing her idea to retailers. Today, the “Snap-It Screw” is a success, and Tedeschi says that despite all the hard work, she wouldn’t change a thing. • “Bling To Go” was invented by Abby Appelt during a period where she was forced to use crutches. She felt the dull metal could use a little pizzazz. So she created some decorative wrapon decals to give her crutches some personality, and her invention was born. • Appelt said, “When I wore my crutch décor, I had people stop

► On Sept. 20, 1973, in a highly publicized “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match, top women’s player Billie Jean King, 29, plays Bobby Riggs, 55, a former No. 1-ranked men’s player. Riggs, a self-proclaimed male chauvinist, had boasted that women were inferior. King beat Riggs 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.

Call a Local Tradesman & Insurance Claim Specialist me, literally everywhere I went, complimenting me on how awesome my crutches were!” • As Appelt notes, people decorate a million different things with stickers, so it made sense to do likewise with crutches. • “Bling To Go” works on crutches, canes, walkers and bed poles. It’s a medical grade product that can be sanitized and cleaned, so it presents no health hazard to the user. The company’s slogan is “express your health,” and they back up their words by being active contributors to several physical and emotional health charities. • Perhaps one of the more peculiar and innovative creations making the invention circuit is the “Bogdon Bass.” It’s a standing bass guitar whose main component is a cardboard box! • The “Bogdon Bass” is literally a large cardboard box sealed with tape, with a wooden neck and vinyl strings. It can be played with or without an amplifier. Because of the use of these materials, it is lightweight, inexpensive and recyclable. • This peculiar instrument was invented by a man named Chris Badynee. He named the instrument after his father, Bogdon. • “The inspiration to make my Bogdon Box Bass was that I had the

763-323-9700

desire to own something that I couldn’t afford, so I made one myself,” explained Badynee. “All I wanted was a naturalsounding upright bass for my own home recordings of songs I wrote.” • After assembling what he thought was just a silly idea only he’d use, Badynee was shocked by how good the makeshift instrument sounded. “[It] sounded so fantastic that I had to tell someone. So I filmed a 60-second video and posted it on the web. I got 1,000 hits on Youtube in less than a day.” • The video became a bit of a viral sensation, and Badynee was asked by “Good Morning, America” for the right to show the video on their program. • Almost immediately after the video was shown on television, Badynee received requests to buy a “Bogdon Box.” He brought in his uncle and a couple of acoustic technicians to help him perfect it. Once they got the instrument exactly right, they began selling it on Ebay to a huge response. Hundreds were sold, almost as quickly as they could turn them out. • Badynee took the profits from those sales to protect and patent his invention. Eventually, his belief in his invention paid off in praise, when his bass was given a rave review in “Bass Player Magazine.”

• A well-known invention marketed via television infomercials is the Snuggie. This blanket with sleeves solved a problem most people didn’t even know they had. • Since it covers your entire body but keeps your hands free thanks to its armholes, Snuggie wearers stay warm while still retaining the ability to take sip of their drink, change the channel or turn the page of a book. • The Snuggie was introduced in 2008 and was an instant success. By 2009, 20 million Snuggies had been sold. But there was actually a similar product already on the market, The Slanket, invented by Gary Clegg when he was a college freshman. • Because it is difficult to patent a textile product, Clegg had not patented The Slanket, so the makers of the Snuggie were able to make and market their product legally. • Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but it’s a safe bet that Clegg felt something other than pride when he first saw the Snuggie.

BAKING TIPS

Cooling Cakes: When baking a cake, do not set on the counter top to cool. All the moisture leaches from the top. Put the finished cake directly into the freezer for at least 2 hours. Make sure you place a hot pad under the pan to avoid damaging your freezer surface. You can leave the (covered) cake in the freezer for months, or defrost easily in minutes after the 2 hour cooling down period. You will never have a more moist cake than with this method!

Meringue: To stop the meringue from shrinking away from the sides of the pies, be sure that when you put the meringue on top, you make sure it touches the pastry all around the edge. This way, it will bake onto the pastry and will not shrink! Low Fat Pie Crust: For a practically fatfree crust, substitute frozen phyllo pastry for traditional pie crust. Thaw as directed, lift two leaves from the stack and center in a 9� or 10� pie pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Lay two more leaves in pan at right angles to the first, then two more on the bias to fill the gaps, then two more so pan is fully lined. With damp paper toweling, gently press phyllo into pan.

SOFA SHOPPING Having provided some fun facts about those marvelous inventions sold on TV, it makes sense to share a little interesting information about the evolution of home shopping. For anyone who has ever enjoyed the luxury of finding a good deal from the comfort of their couch, here’s how it all came about. • The first example of “home shopping” as we know it was offered by The Home Shopping Network (or HSN). HSN started with humble beginnings in 1977 in Clearwater, Florida, by selling 112 electronic can openers on an AM radio station. This turned into a regular radio shopping show called “Suncoast Bargaineers.” • In 1981, the televised “Home Shopping Channel” was launched as a Tampa Bay local access cable channel. In 1985, it began broadcasting nationwide, 24-hours a day on cable and local TV. • Today, The Home Shopping Network is a $3 billion retailer that stretches across multiple channels and includes online, mobile, catalog and brick and mortar stores. It offers products 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 364 days a year. • HSN now reaches 96 million homes, and its online site is one of the top 10 e-commerce sites on the web. Its catalog division, Cornerstone, distributes 275 million catalogs a year. That’s a lot of postage! • In 2010, legendary rocker Rod Stewart was the first popular performer to debut a new album on a shopping channel. He debuted his CD “Fly Me To The Moon” with a live, one-hour concert on HSN. It was the highest viewed program in the history of the network and broke all its music sales records.

• The other prominent shopping channel is QVC. It was founded in 1986 by Joseph Segel, founder of the Franklin Mint. Seasoned viewers of late-night TV commercials will recognize the Franklin Mint as the seller of commemorative plates, figurines, painted coins and other collectible items. • QVC’s first live broadcast was shot in a studio in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The company broke American business records for sales by a new public company. Part of its early success came through an exclusive agreement with Sears to sell their products on the air. • Showing the influence of home shopping as more than just niche programming, QVC reported record sales of T-shirts heralding “Dallas Cowboys 1994 Super Bowl Champs.” The network sold over 6,000 shirts in just the first few seconds after the game ended! • In 1995, QVC’s success in home shopping was expressed by a few remarkable landmarks. In March of that year, they recorded over 250,000 phone calls in a single day. • It also shipped its 200 millionth package during March of that year, the equivalent of one package for every person in America at the time. In August of that year, QVC held a “Klondike Gold Rush Day,” where revenues topped $19 million dollars in 24 hours. • Today, QVC receives more than 181 million calls in the United States per year, and it ships about 166 million packages worldwide. Its reach is to more than 166 million homes, and sales recently topped $7 billion in a single year.

FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD: MARTHA’S VINEYARD A quaint, beautiful island in the northern Atlantic off the coat of Massachusetts, Martha’s Vineyard is one of the United States’ most relaxing vacation getaways. Listed below are the aspects that make the island unlike any other. • The world-famous island regularly hosts a variety of occasions, including weddings, honeymoons, corporate events, executive retreats, etc. Some residents live on the island seasonally, others, year round. • The island provides sandy beaches, clay cliffs, bird-watching excursions, elegant dining destinations, great shopping and attractions. • Martha’s Vineyard actually prides itself on the uniqueness of its dining experiences — There are no chain restaurants. • The northern part of the island is covered in hills and boulders, while the southern part is mostly sandy beaches. • Many artists live on the island, creating and then selling their hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces. • Vacationers or residents reach the island via ferry or airplane, as there are no tunnels or bridges linked to the island. There are more than 100 lodging destinations, ranging anywhere from cozy cottages to campgrounds to swanky luxury resorts. • Although the oceans around the island are freezing with large waves and dangerous undertows, the island offers many harbors with warmer water. • Martha’s Vineyard is referred to as “Noepe” by the American Indians, which means “Land amid the streams.” • It is believed that Martha’s Vineyard was discovered in the year 1000 by explorers called the Northmen,

who named the island Vineland. When Verranazo stumbled upon the island in 1524, he named it Claudia, honoring the mother of France’s Francis II. • The first explorer to give the island its current name was Bartholomew Gosnold, who also discovered and named Cape Cod. While lost in the Atlantic, he stumbled upon a smaller island outside of Martha’s Vineyard and gave this island the name. The next day, he discovered the larger island and after exploring, switched the names and titled the smaller island No Man’s Land. Martha’s Vineyard came from his mother, Martha. • The first school on Martha’s Vineyard was established in 1651 to teach native Indians who were willing to learn. • Martha’s Vineyard was considered part of New York until 1692. • At one point in its history during the mid 1800s, after generations and generations, Martha’s Vineyard had such a high deaf population that the residents developed their own sing language, Martha’s Vineyard Sign Language (MVSL). • In 1911, the Colonial Inn opening, thus sparking its transformation into a vacationer’s paradise. • Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster hit “Jaws” was filmed on the island in 1974. • When famous actor John Belushi died in 1982, he was buried on Martha’s Vineyard in the town of Chilmark. Many residents and vacationers visit his grave to pay their respects. • Long-term island residents tend to be affluent, as the cost of living on the island is about 60 percent higher than that of the United States mainland, and the cost of real estate is a striking 95 percent higher. In 2010, the island’s population was 16,535. • In 2011, Martha’s Vineyard celebrated its 100th year of being a supreme vacation destination spot in the United States.

Some Can & Some Can'trive He used to go to all the public functions... especially the picture theaters and always carried a sugar bag to collect empty bottles and cans. His name was... Albert (Tapper) Torney. Everyone thought he was a bit eccentric and kids would tease and hassle him. But, it was discovered he was very talented and only sold the empty bottles and some of the cans. After he died in 1998, (aged 86), his large collection of model cars he made from the Aluminum cans was discovered. This goes to prove..."You Shouldn't Judge A Book by its Cover", or a Sculptor by his sugar bag. Some of his collection ---- Amazing!

America is a country full of would-be inventors. For most, it’s as simple as discovering a problem that no one’s ever solved and coming up with a creative and inexpensive solution. Here are just a few of the countless TV marvels that have been advertised on our sets since this phenomenon began. • A good example of the whole “discover a problem, discover a solution” method of inventing is the “Snap-It Screw.” It’s a method of replacing the tiny, and difficult to handle, screws that hold eyeglasses together. • The “Snap-It Screw” was invented by Nancy Tedeschi. “The old saying that necessity is the mother of inventions is what inspired [it],” said Tedeschi. She meant it literally, as it was her own mother who inspired the invention’s creation. • Tedeschi’s mother was overseas doing volunteer work when a hinge screw in her glasses broke. Left with no other immediate remedy, Tedeschi’s mother pulled the pin out of one of her earrings and placed it where the former hinge had been.
