Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

If you drink soda consider that the average can contains about 15 teaspoons of sugar. And we are very aware of the dangers of sugar – overweight, and among other problems the assault on your immune system

making us vulnerable to disease.

Changing to those diet sodas isn’t the answer either since you are literally drinking a can of chemicals,

artificial flavorings, and food colorings.

So for the maximum chance of good health

and weight, drop that pop!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES
EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS 

Rising Expenses Means Retirees Need Rising Income

So, how do we plan for the knowns -  and unknowns of retirement?  Despite the market’s recent strength, retirees and those nearing retirement still face certain risks when it comes to retirement income.

Just a generation or two ago, Americans had several sources of guaranteed income in retirement.  But the pensions that once provided income for retirees are now rare.  As for Social Security, questions persist about its long-term solvency and whether that will result in a reduction of current benefit levels.  And we have all seen how personal savings and assets have been impacted by low interest rates and housing and market volatility.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

Meet F. Scott Fitzgerald – Simi Valley Public Library
Thursday, July 31 at 6:00 pm

 

A loving portrait of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald revealing his human frailties and deep heart, “Meeting F. Scott Fitzgerald” presents the wistful, tragic life of the writer through the sharp eyes and portrayal of playwright/performer Larry Vanderveen.   Vanderveen, dressed impeccably in spats and double-breasted suit, elegantly captures the melancholic soul of Fitzgerald, intensely revealing the emotion and ironic humor as the long suffering but now sober writer.  He wonderfully portrays Fitzgerald’s wounded but resilient spirit.

An informative, entertaining, and emotional stroll through F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life.

 Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week

Little children laugh about 50 times a day; adults sometimes never. But we know that laughter mitigates stress and it is so important that it is considered

internal jogging for your body.

Give yourself an interior vacation.

So go ahead and laugh at least a couple of times daily. It does your body good!

IF YOU LIKE TCHAIKOVSKY YOU WILL

REALLY LOVE THIS – JUST BEAUTIFUL
Forty students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance took a classical approach to the flashmob as they flashwaltzed Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers at the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower in Jerusalem.  Doctors, patients and passers-by joined in the fun.

The surprise concert was part of Good Deeds Day, an annual event that originated in Israel in 2007 and now takes place in over 50 countries worldwide. On this day volunteers reach out to the less fortunate and the vulnerable.

The Academy students enjoyed the day so much that they have decided to schedule regular concerts at the hospital. Hadassah Medical Organization treats over one million patients annually, without regard to race, religion or national origin.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week

How do some of your vegetables score on pesticides?

Take celery for example – up to 13 pesticides are

sprayed on this otherwise healthy

 vegetable. Since these stalks are so porous,

they retain all these poisons.

Be wary also when buying bell peppers,

spinach, and potatoes as well.

So farmers’ markets here we come – let’s buy health instead of disease!

Whether we’re having the time of our life or hitting a rough patch of road, we could all use a good laugh. Laughing not only boosts our mood, it also boosts our physical energy and our immune systems!

 Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week

 

For those of you who know me, you know I always promote eating sardines. And why is that?  They’re loaded with the extremely healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and offer high levels of Coenzyme Q10,
which is a powerful antioxidant known to
promote a strong immune system.

And only 3 oz of sardines provide 40% of daily calcium.

So before you wrinkle your nose at these little guys, take the bait and eat some sardines today!
