A Special Wellness Report New Medicine Based On An 88-Year Old Theory By Albert Einstein Can Help Almost Everyone Who Is Sick Or Injured!

W

hat you are about to read may be the most important information you’ve ever read. Here is why. Albert Einstein was, quite possibly, the most intelligent person who ever lived. His theories and ideas were so far ahead of his time, that even now, the smartest scientists alive are still discovering his value.

amount and type of energy is restored to these cells. But once that energy is restored...

The Body Can Recover From Almost Anything! With the correct equipment, properly used, low level lasers have been clinically shown to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, increase cellular energy, increase cell permeability (so that the nutrients the cell needs to heal can get into the cell) and even help correct faulty DNA!*

One of his theories published in 1917, worked out the theory of how lasers function. However, it was not until May 16, 1960 (43 years later) that the first actual laser was developed by an American scientist. Since then, scientists and inventors have developed many types of lasers and all kinds of uses for them. They can be used as a scalpel that is so delicate, it can be used on the eyes of human beings. Lasers are used to read price codes at your local supermarkets. And they’re used to play music and video on your CD’s and DVD’s. But now, there is a new type of laser so effective against human disease and injury that it is rapidly changing the practice of medicine. This is a new type of low-level laser which produces an unfocused light that has been...

Registered With The FDA To Be 100% Safe! Low-level lasers use less than one watt of power and they produce what can best be described as a “Healing Light”. Here is a somewhat un-scientific description of how this “Healing Light” can potentially help reverse the damage done by human sickness and disease. As you probably know, our entire bodies are made up of cells. The health of all human cells is based on energy. If your cells don’t receive enough energy, they will weaken and the body will become sick. Call 1-800-303-6923,

Code 6880.

Be One Of The First 200 To Call & Receive A Free DVD! For you to be healthy, what your cells need is exactly the right kind and the right amount of energy. Every time you get injured or become sick, the energy flow to your cells is disrupted. Until the proper type and amount of energy is restored, you will remain sick or injured. That’s what a low-level laser device does. It re-energizes the cells in your body with the right kind and proper amount of healing energy. It may surprise you to learn that low level lasers are ...

Used By Doctors To Heal Their Patients In The Fastest Way Possible! Could you guess what kind of doctors use the highest percent of low-level lasers on their patients? It’s doctors involved in sports medicine. Why? The answer is simple. You see, doctors involved in sports medicine often have to get their patients better in the fastest way humanly possible because every day he remains “unhealthy” can cost the sports organization millions of dollars.

What you have just read is a very simplistic (almost childish) explanation of low-level laser therapy, of how it works, and what it can do for you. But this is something that needs to be explained to you much more accurately by a real expert.

Professional Results In a Small, Easy to Use Package! Call 1-800-303-6923, Code 6880 For Your FREE Information Report.

But here’s something exciting! You don’t actually need to go to a doctor to get laser therapy. If you want to you can buy one of these devices and use it on yourself. The best ones come with simple, easy-to-follow instructions and can be used by almost any person with average intelligence. Perhaps the best low-level lasers in the world have been invented by a doctor named Larry Lytle. He has studied lasers and human health for years, and Dr. Lytle is, without question, one of the most knowledgeable people in the world about low-level lasers... and... how they can be used...

To Help Almost Every Health Problem Ever Experienced By A Human Being! Dr. Lytle believes (as do many other people) low-level laser therapy will become the medicine of the future. If you hold a low-level laser device against the skin of your body and turn it on, you will be able to see the laser light... but... you will not be able to feel it. There probably won’t even be a sensation of warmth. Laser light is as gentle as the kiss of a butterfly. But, from a healing point of view, it is quite possible it is more effective than drugs or surgery. Low-level laser therapy is not just the medicine of the future. For many people who know about it, it is the “medicine” they use now. The problem of trying to explain the healing powers of low-level laser therapy is...

It Works So Well On So Many Different Problems, It Seems Like It Couldn’t Possibly Be True! But it is true! As mentioned earlier, all injury and illness creates an interruption of energy to the cells of the human body. The body will never recover until the proper Advertisement

Precautions Make Pizza Delivery Safer in Scottsdale By Beth Lucas Brian Chapman watches his back. A delivery man for Hungry Howie’s Pizza covering a large segment of Scottsdale, his job is regularly listed among the nation’s most dangerous.

“You always watch behind your back,” Chapman said. “You get familiar with the area. I know a driver who went to a place where the night before somebody had gotten robbed. Then he had to deliver there the next night. He watched his back, is OK.” Nationally, news reports have covered changes to pizza delivery: blackouts to areas with high crime that in some cases strike discord with customers who feel a bias against them; robberies and attempted robberies of drivers at empty homes or addresses that turn out to not be homes. But due to local diligence, local enforcement say Scottsdale has been a safe place for delivery in recent years. “We have not had any delivery driver robberies in a few years,” said Scottsdale

Police Department Sgt. Mark Clark. “The best way to keep an empty home from becoming a magnet for crime, is to have the home checked frequently. Either a real estate agent or neighbors would most likely be the best line of defense.” Magazines regularly list “sales drivers” which include food delivery drivers, as among the top 10 most dangerous jobs, based on U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data. The national data demonstrates an increase in violent injuries as well as motor vehicle crashes among drivers from 2011 to 2012. There were 51 fatalities in 2012, including 12 from violent acts and 36 from vehicle crashes. That compares to 40 fatalities in 2011, including seven from violent acts. The same trend is true among injuries, which have also risen nationwide, to 270 in 2012 related to personal injury violence, up from 230 in 2011. Bureau economist Sean Smith said it was unclear if growth in industry or population impacted the figures.

Chapman’s manager, Hondo Castaneda pointed out that delivery people never carry more than $20 at the very most. And there are precautions he takes, similar to those across the Valley, such as encouraging credit cards, as many of the robberies involve cash orders, with pizza being the most valuable item on hand. Some pizza shops will also call a home to verify the order and address, if it is new or a cash payment. “Usually to prevent fraud or anything like that, I’ll have customers sometimes pay with a card, especially if it is a really big order,” Castaneda said. “We have not had any issues with empty homes lately. We try to have our drivers make sure the customer shows them the ID card as well, to prevent identity theft.” Chapman said his company “looks out” for staff, and added that many customers become regulars, which builds relationships and a safer environment. But he had one important tip to customers: “Have your light on, your front porch light,” he said. “I carry an LED light but it’s better if we can see.”

The New Year brings a new business to the Phoenix music community. Hamilton Stringed Instruments opened its doors at the Historic Cattle Track Arts Compound in Scottsdale with plans to build handcrafted instruments for handmade music. Luthier Frank Hamilton also plans to repair stringed instruments including electric and acoustic guitars, mandolins, banjos and resophonic guitars. “I have a good feel for all of those instruments because I have played most of them for years,” Hamilton explained. He also plans to build banjos and guitars with an eye toward mandolins in the future. “I’m happy to be back at the luthier’s bench again,” Hamilton said. Hamilton attended the Galloup Guitar Building School in Michigan in 1999 and managed a repair shop

for Guitar Works Ltd. in Evanston, Ill., for six years. During this time he worked on the instruments of a variety of professional and amateur players, including: Noam Pikelny, Robbie Fulks, Don Stiernberg, Dennis Cahill, Eddie “The Chief ” Clearwater and David “Honeyboy” Edwards. “Repair work is very rewarding,” explained Hamilton. “When you can help somebody enjoy their craft more by improving the playability of an instrument or fixing a problem it makes you feel good, especially when those customers are new to their instrument. It’s hard to learn on a poorly set up instrument.” Hamilton left his repair bench and moved to the East Valley in 2005 to work in publishing. “I was an editor and writer before I was trained in building and repair,” explained Hamilton. “The entire time I published the newspapers I

missed working in the music community.” It took two years to find the right space for a shop. “I was really lucky to find Cattle Track,” he stated. “I play the mandolin and sing in the String ‘Em Up Band. Our guitarist, Will Alcorn, booked us at Cattle Track to play an art exhibit. Between sound check and the gig I took the nickel tour with Mark McDowell (www.markmcdowellartist. com), the artist who hired us. I really liked the area and asked if they had any room for a luthier. Mark said they wanted something music related in the community and within a couple of weeks I was moving tools into my studio.

6 Frugal Tips Help You Sleep Better pasta vixen

Are you tired of taking expensive over-the-counter sleeping medications that just don’t seem to work, or leave you feeling groggy? Getting restful sleep can be a challenge, but you don’t need to spend big bucks that bust your budget to catch some Zzzs. Create some white noise. Create some calm and consistent background noise. It may be just the thing you need to relax. Turn on a small fan to create not only some fresh air circulation but a nice soft hum. Download free meditation music. Amazon.com often offers free songs or 99-cent album downloads. Look for some meditation music that you can get for free or cheap. Then at the end of the day, just push play and relax. photo page

Behold the power of herbs. Keep an herbal sachet near your pillow. Lavender and vanilla are known to induce sleep and relaxation. Use fresh herbs and just place in a muslin bag or fabric sachet, then place under your pillow where you can enjoy the aromatic properties. Power down. Unplug and power down all distractions such as telephones and televisions. There is no quicker way to interrupt your drifting than an electronic device flashing and making noise.

4

Enjoy a warm, noncaffeinated drink. Treat yourself to a tea cup of warm water steeped with lemon or fresh herbs, or a little warm milk with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Think of this as a treat. Sit in bed with your cup and saucer, drink slowly and imagine your body unwinding with each sip. Take care of your linens. Treat your bedding well. Wash it once a week with a gentle detergent that won’t irritate your skin. Use a natural fabric softener or fresh herbs to add a light fragrance. Shake your bedding out daily before making your bed up, smooth your blankets out and fluff your pillows. This only takes a few minutes, and at the end of the day you will feel like you are falling into a fancy bed in a fivestar resort.

What’s Cooking? By Jan D’Atri

Mardi Gras Gumbo pasta vixen

March is Mardi Gras month. Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday,” is the last night of eating rich foods before fasting for lent. So let the indulging begin with this amazing and hearty recipe for seafood and sausage gumbo! My thanks to Scottsdale resident Kathy Rice for sharing this festival of flavors in a bowl! Note: Gumbo is a soup, but it is often served over rice as a main course.

Seafood and Sausage Gumbo 3 pounds raw shrimp (16 count) in shell 1 1/2 quarts water 4 onions, 2 of them quartered, the rest diced 4 bay leaves 3/4 cup vegetable oil 1 cup all-purpose flour 5 tablespoons margarine or butter 2 green bell peppers, seeded and minced 4 celery stalks, minced 1 1/2 pounds Andouille sausage, cut into 1/2-inch slices 3 cups fresh okra, cut into 1/2-inch slices (may substitute frozen) 3 garlic cloves, crushed 1/2 teaspoon fresh or dried thyme leaves 2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon white pepper 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 cup hot pepper sauce (adjust to taste optional) 2 cups chopped, peeled fresh or canned plum tomatoes (I prefer canned) 1 pound fresh crabmeat Boiled rice, to serve Crusty bread for dunking

1. Peel and de-vein the shrimp; reserve the heads and shells. Cover and chill the shrimp while you make the sauce. 2. Place the shrimp heads and shells in a saucepan with the water, 2 quartered onions, and 1 of the bay leaves and bring to a boil. Partly cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain and set aside. 3. To make a Cajun roux, heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet. When the oil is hot, add the flour, a little at a time, and blend to a smooth paste. 4. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly for 25 to 40 minutes until the roux reaches the color of peanut butter. Remove the pan from the heat and continue stirring until the roux cools and stops cooking. 5. Melt the margarine or butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan or flameproof casserole. Finely chop the remaining onions and add to the pan with the peppers and celery. Cook over mediumlow heat for 6 to 8 minutes, until the onions are soft, stirring occasionally. 6. Add the sausage, stir well, and

cook for 5 minutes longer. Add the okra and garlic, stir, and cook until the okra stops producing white “threads.” 7. Add the remaining bay leaves, the thyme, salt, black and white peppers, cayenne pepper, and hotpepper sauce to-taste, if using. Stir well then stir in 1 1/2 quarts of the shrimp stock and the plum tomatoes. Bring to a boil, partly cover the pan, lower the heat, and simmer for about 20 minutes. 8. Whisk in the Cajun roux. Raise the heat and bring to a boil, whisking well. Lower the heat again and simmer, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. 9. Stir in the shrimp and crabmeat. Cook for at least 3 to 4 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink. To serve, put a mound of hot, boiled rice in each serving bowl and ladle the gumbo over, making sure each person gets some prawns and some crabmeat. Serve with crusty bread for dunking. Serves 10 to 12.

Consignment, Art and Antiques for the Discriminating Palate One thing is for certain, Darlene Richert is as passionate about her business as her customers are about treasure hunting at Avery Lane. Situated in Scottsdale Airpark, Avery Lane is a 10,000-square-foot mecca of luxury consignment furniture and art along with a collection of Italian and French antiques that make shopping at the store an adventure. Richert’s daughters, Avery, 10, and Delaney, 14, were the inspiration behind the store’s name and the young ladies can often be found assisting their mother with a number of tasks at the store.

“Initially, it was about the relationships I have with Realtors, designers and friends,” Richert said. “Now, the shop is such a treasure trove that the showroom itself is really driving the attention and traffic. I want people to know they can just call me and if they have great things, we’d love to partner with them for consignment.” Antiques are in demand at Avery Lane. “We’ve got clients from all over the world who live here in Scottsdale,” Richert said. “My clients have lived in Chicago, Minnesota, New York, France and London. They bring their furnishings to their homes here and when they redecorate or downsize, that’s how we get those lovely pieces.”

Richert loves to assist clients in finding unique pieces for their home while discussing what makes each piece special. She also has access to the Valley’s most creative designers. “I do have really talented designers who shop here and I know their work,” she explained. “I have a card catalog for when people ask me for a designer. It’s a way for me to give back to the designers who support Avery Lane and it’s a genuine pleasure to share their talents with my clients.” Avery Lane also hosts various local nonprofit events, concerts and gatherings.

You never know what treasures are to be discovered at Avery Lane. “It’s like every day is Christmas, when that trailer backs up and we hear, ‘beep, beep, beep,’ and we open it up and find beautiful things,” Richert mused. She receives seven or eight deliveries each week and her customers are excited to get those latest Avery Lane additions. “We’re looking for high-end, quality pieces and specifically, we want pieces with a story, history and charm. They can be antiques; Italian, Spanish, French, Asian, and obviously we love modern, too.” From a $7,000 Roche Bobois leather couch and newer items from Ladlow’s and Robb & Stucky to a vintage Indian or Ducati motorcycle, you never know what is going to show up on the showroom floor. “That’s the fun of Avery Lane,” Richert said. “It has a ‘Paris apartment’ design aesthetic.

Self Development Charter School Develops Lifelong Learners biz spotlight

When Self-Development Charter Preschool was founded in 1988, it had ambitions of its young students excelling in every area of their education and development. In 2000, the school expanded to include SelfDevelopment Charter School with the addition of kindergarten through eighth grade. The curriculum is accelerated and students learn one grade level above Arizona Standards. Among some of the school’s notable accolades: ranked first out of all Mesa schools, ranked second out of 1,089 Arizona elementary schools, ranked sixth out of all Arizona’s K-12 schools and voted 2010 Charter School of the Year. It was the only Mesa school to receive the 2011 Academic Excellence Award Winner from the Arizona Department of Education. Recently, the school gained accreditation from Cambridge International Examinations, a not-for-profit organization and department affiliated with the University of Cambridge. Self Development Charter School went through a lengthy accreditation process including an intense application, a school site inspection, a review of its records and curriculum scrutiny. The significance of the designation is important. “We’ll be provided with curriculum materials that are on an international level,” noted principal Anjum Majeed. There are 9,000 schools worldwide in 160 countries that have Cambridge International Examinations designation. “Our goal is to put the school on the international level and we’re really excited about it,” Majeed said. The school’s students routinely rank in the highest percentile in the state in math and science. Eighth graders that move into the surrounding public high schools excel. “They are among some of the top performing students in their school,” Majeed stated. on the town

Students have the opportunity to take algebra II/pre-calculus, AP biology, AP history, and high school literature. Students participate in field trips and a yearly drama performance. “It’s a great experience for our students to be able to perform in front of a large group,” said teacher and administrative team member Jennifer Salvatori. Science, math and language skills are paramount at the school. Students in second and third grade take weekly Spanish classes and fourth and fifth graders take Latin through the Middlebury College online program. “The courses are very thorough and go over grammar, culture, speaking and writing,” Salvatori stated. The public charter school boasts its own library. “The library is important,” Majeed said. “We want to instill a love of reading and students have to have certain books available to them.” There is a large collection of literary classics and great books. The Classic Program for students in second grade and higher rewards children at the end of the year for completing certain classic books. All students participate in weekly music and music theory classes and children in grades second and higher have the option to participate in violin instruction. There is also an inhouse sports program and children in fifth through eighth grades can also participate in various local competitions. “We focus a lot on their skills so that when they go to high school, they’re ready to participate at that level,” Majeed said. Both Self Development Charter School and Self Development Charter Preschool are located at 1709 N. Greenfield Rd. (south of McKellips Road).

Our Story is Your Story “You can have everything you want in life, if you will just help enough other people get what they want. ”—Zig Ziglar Seventeen years ago a guy with a dream—and not much else— walked out of the comforts of his job as an accountant to go and start a community publication in North Scottsdale. Having no sales or publishing experience whatsoever, he believed then, as he does now, that life is simply too short to spend it doing something uninspiring. Slowly, oh so slowly, the fledgling enterprise began to pull its little head above water, owed mostly to luck, great people and flat out tenacity. Today, this fledgling enterprise has grown into Times Media Group, its print and digital products serving audiences all over Arizona. This little company, once housed in a 160-square-foot executive suite office on Hayden and Raintree, has become...well, we won’t brag. Suffice it to say, it’s a bit bigger today, and we continue to adhere strictly to the true life principles that have guided us thus far. So, here’s the skinny: You can choose to advertise wherever you like, heck we try lots of things too! But whatever you do, make sure to at least see if Times Media Group can help your business. After all, we’re small business people too…and for that reason alone, we bring value to the table when helping to design your marketing campaign. If you like good ideas, straight-talk and measurable results, we’ve been waiting for your call.
