Make School Year

EA S I E R

he following health and safety tips are


from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Feel free to excerpt these
tips or use them in their entirety in any print
or broadcast story, with acknowledgment of
source.

MAKING THE SCHOOL YEAR


EASIER
Remind your child that there are probably a
lot of students who are uneasy about the first
day of school. This may be at any age. Teachers know that students are nervous and will
make an extra effort to make sure everyone
feels as comfortable as possible.
Point out the positive aspects of starting
school. She'll see old friends and meet new
ones. Refresh her positive memories about
previous years, when she may have returned
home after the first day with high spirits because she had a good time.
Find another child in the neighborhood with
whom your student can walk to school or ride
on the bus.
If it is a new school for your child, attend
any available orientations and take an opportunity to tour the school before the first day.
If you feel it is needed, drive your child (or
walk with her) to school and pick her up on
the first day.
BACKPACK SAFETY

The Local News, September 01, 2015 hbnews1@aol.com 714.914.9797

Choose a backpack with wide, padded


shoulder straps and a padded back.
Pack light. Organize the backpack to use all
of its compartments. Pack heavier items closest to the center of the back. The backpack
should never weigh more than 10 to 20 percent
of your child's body weight.
Always use both shoulder straps. Slinging a
backpack over one shoulder can strain muscles.
If your school allows, consider a rolling
backpack. This type of backpack may be a
good choice for students who must tote a
heavy load. Remember that rolling backpacks
still must be carried up stairs, they may be difficult to roll in snow, and they may not fit in
some lockers.

EATING DURING THE


SCHOOL DAY
Studies show that children who eat a nutritious breakfast function better. They do better
in school, and have better concentration and
more energy.
Most schools regularly send schedules of
cafeteria menus home and/or have them
posted on the school's website. With this advance information, you can plan on packing
lunch on the days when the main course is one
your child prefers not to eat.
Look into what is offered in school vending
machines. Vending machines should stock
healthy choices such as fresh fruit, low-fat
dairy products, water and 100 percent fruit
juice. Learn about your child's school wellness policy and get involved in school groups
to put it into effect.
Each 12-ounce soft drink contains approximately 10 teaspoons of sugar and 150 calories.
Drinking just one can of soda a day increases
a child's risk of obesity by 60%. Choose
healthier options to send in your child's lunch.

BULLYING
Bullying or cyberbullying is when one child
picks on another child repeatedly. Bullying can
be physical, verbal, or social. It can happen at
school, on the playground, on the school bus,
in the neighborhood, over the Internet, or
through mobile devices like cell phones.

When Your Child Is Bullied


Help your child learn how to respond by
teaching your child how to:
1. Look the bully in the eye.
2. Stand tall and stay calm in a difficult situation.
3. Walk away.
Teach your child how to say in a firm voice.
1. "I don't like what you are doing."
2. "Please do NOT talk to me like that."
3. "Why would you say that?"
Teach your child when and how to ask a
trusted adult for help.
Encourage your child to make friends with
other children.
Support activities that interest your child.
Alert school officials to the problems and
work with them on solutions.
Make sure an adult who knows about the
bullying can watch out for your child's safety
and well-being when you cannot be there.
Monitor your child's social media or texting
interactions so you can identify problems before they get out of hand.
When Your Child Is the Bully
Be sure your child knows that bullying is
never OK.
Set firm and consistent limits on your child's
aggressive behavior.
Be a positive role mode. Show children they
can get what they want without teasing, threat-

ening or hurting someone.


Use effective, non-physical discipline, such
as loss of privileges.
Develop practical solutions with the school
principal, teachers, counselors, and parents of
the children your child has bullied.

When Your Child Is a Bystander


Encourage your child to join with others in
telling bullies to stop.
Encourage your child to tell a trusted adult
about the bullying.
Help your child support other children who
may be bullied. Encourage your child to include these children in activities.

BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL


CHILD CARE
During early and middle childhood, youngsters need supervision. A responsible adult
should be available to get them ready and off
to school in the morning and supervise them
after school until you return home from work.
If a family member will care for your child,
communicate the need to follow consistent
rules set by the parent regarding discipline and
homework.
Children approaching adolescence (11- and
12-year-olds) should not come home to an
empty house in the afternoon unless they show
unusual maturity for their age.
If alternate adult supervision is not available, parents should make special efforts to supervise their children from a distance.
Children should have a set time when they are
expected to arrive at home and should check
in with a neighbor or with a parent by telephone.
If you choose a commercial after-school
program, inquire about the training of the staff.
There should be a high staff-to-child ratio, and
the rooms and the playground should be safe.

DEVELOPING GOOD HOMEWORK


AND STUDY HABITS
Create an environment that is conducive to
doing homework. Children need a consistent
work space in their bedroom or another part of
the home that is quiet, without distractions,
and promotes study.

Schedule ample time for homework.


Establish a household rule that the TV and other electronic distractions stay off during
homework time.
Supervise computer and Internet use.
Be available to answer questions and offer assistance, but never do a child's homework for
her.
Take steps to help alleviate eye fatigue, neck fatigue and brain fatigue while studying. It
may be helpful to close the books for a few minutes, stretch, and take a break periodically
when it will not be too disruptive.
If your child is struggling with a particular subject, and you aren't able to help her yourself,
a tutor can be a good solution. Talk it over with your child's teacher first.
Some children need help organizing their homework. Checklists, timers, and parental supervision can help overcome homework problems.
If your child is having difficulty focusing on or completing homework, discuss this with
your child's teacher, school counselor, or health care provider.
Establish a good sleep routine. Insufficient sleep is associated with lower academic
achievement in middle school, high school and college, as well as higher rates of absenteeism and tardiness. The optimal amount of sleep for most adolescents is in the range of
8.5 to 9.5 hours per night.

scouted Huntington Beach in

By Bryan Golden
n less than 200 years,
America grew from a
handful of colonies to become the greatest nation in history. In a few hundred years,
we surpassed nations that were
many times older.
What
makes America great?
The two main elements that
make America great are our
people and our freedoms.
Americans have a can do,
nothing is impossible, spirit.
Starting with the American
Revolution, we have always
conquered adversity, often in
the face of overwhelming
odds.
We have more rights and
freedoms than anywhere
else in the world. Our freedoms are considered inalienable rights, not privileges
granted by government. Our
freedoms are the envy of the
world. Every item in the bill
of rights is a precious jewel
designed to ensure the immortality of our liberty.
Our founders came from societies where government controlled its citizens. They had a
solid understanding of the consequences of unchecked
power. Our constitution was
crafted specifically to limit the
scope of government to prevent its infringing on individual liberties.
Our constitution is a brilliant
document, filled with foresight
and understanding, that has
withstood the test of time. The
principles embedded in the
constitution are the foundation
of our greatness.
In America, each citizen can
control his or her destiny without fear of interference by government or others.
Our
government was formed to
serve the people rather than

vice versa. Our government


was designed to play a minimal role in peoples lives.
Our doors have always been
open to people from anywhere
in the world who want to come
here legally to work hard, contribute, and assimilate into our
society. Americas reputation
as a melting pot is derived
from the fact that people from

other systems have failed miserably.


America has a big heart.
Whether in this country or
elsewhere, we help those who
cannot help themselves.
Americans are first on the
scene in the wake of natural or
civic disasters. We are there
with food, supplies, medical
aid, and money. Our brave

every walk of life can work together to create an unstoppable


force for good.
In America anything is possible. America is great because it offers its people
unlimited opportunity to succeed by bringing their dreams
to reality. In America, success
requires hard work, determination, and persistence, not permission.
We
are
constitutionally protected to
prevent government from confiscating the results of our
labor.
America is an engine for unprecedented productivity. Our
economic system has been responsible for civilization transforming innovations and
discoveries. No other country
has even come close and many

soldiers travel the globe defending those who cant defend themselves.
In America there are no
problems that we cant solve.
Any obstacles we may face do
not taint our greatness. It is
our greatness that enables us to
overcome adversity and become even stronger in the
process. Every day, be thankful that you live in America
and benefit from its greatness.
Dont take for granted that
which people in other countries can only dream about. Be
proud to be an American.

DUI
check

point
results

he Huntington Beach Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 on Main Street
south of Yorktown Avenue between the hours of 7:40 p.m. and 2:20 a.m.
Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving
drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers
and the public.
DUI/Drivers License checkpoints have been shown to lower DUI deaths and
injuries. A major component of these checkpoints is the deterrent effect it has on
those who might drive drunk or drug impaired, bringing about more awareness
and encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),
checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the
DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6
for every $1 spent. Ninety Percent of California drivers approve of checkpoints.

BELOW ARE THE RESULTS FROM THIS EVENINGS CHECKPOINT.


1150 Vehicles through checkpoint
596 Vehicles Screened
11 Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST) administered
5 DUI-Alcohol suspects arrested
5 Citations issued for driving while unlicensed or on a suspended license
5 Citations issued for various traffic violations
The Huntington Beach Police Department will be conducting another
DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint in the near future in our ongoing commitment to lowering deaths and injuries upon our streets and highways.
The checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of
Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Report Drunk Drivers Call 9-1-1!

Wow: Scholarships For eSports... Kobritz


on
Whatever Happen To
Knowledge Based Education? Sports
G

iven a choice, most parents would


probably
prefer that their children
By Jordan Kobritz
spend more time playing sports and
less time playing computer games in the hopes
that the former results in a college scholarship. Now, the latter may also lead to
a free education.
Robert Morris University (RMU) in Chicago and the University of Pikeville
(UPike) in Kentucky are the first institutions of higher learning to offer scholarships for what is
known as eSports,
what laymen refer to
as playing computer
games. Competitive
gaming on the professional level has
been around for
decades but the collegiate version dates
to 2009 when students at Princeton
challenged
their
counterparts at MIT
to a match of StarCraft. At about the same time a student at UC San Diego started his own team
and the two groups decided to form a league which they named the Collegiate
Starleague (CSL).
Since then, the growth of collegiate competitive gaming has been nothing short
of phenomenal. Last year the CSL consisted of 550 teams and more than 5,600
players. Another league, the National Collegiate eSports Association (NCeSPA),
consists of 700 schools.
Because eSports arent recognized and sanctioned by the NCAA, they arent
subject to the financial limitations and archaic rules that govern most collegiate
sports. One benefit of that freedom is it allows teams and leagues to generate

their own revenue and students compete for thousands of dollars in scholarships
and prizes.
RMUs scholarship program, launched last fall, covers 70% of the cost of tuition
- $22,800 per year - for 35 varsity players and 35% of tuition for another 30 reserves. In addition to providing scholarship funds, RMU hired a coach and built
a $100,000 eSports facility on campus complete with $400 specially designed
gaming chairs - for players to practice and compete. This fall the university plans
to add another 15-20 scholarships for students who compete in a game called Dota
2 and 10-15 more scholarships for players who want to compete
in a new game, Heroes of Warcraft.
Although the UPike eSports program was launched last spring,
the scholarship program will begin this fall with an initial 20
scholarships. Like RMU, UPike will also construct a separate
building for its eSports students.
Playing video games in college isnt all about competition,
fun, and games. Students are held to the same athletic and academic standards as every other athlete. The practice, intensity
levels and teamwork necessary to be successful in eSports is
similar to that of traditional sports.
That comes as no surprise to the generation that spends five
or more hours per day honing their craft. The surprised individuals are their parents. No longer do they have to urge their offspring to develop their physical skills so they can obtain a free
college education. Today, playing video games can accomplish the same thing.

data (July 2015) put California on track to achieve the 1.2


million acre-feet (AF) savings goal by February 2016, as
called for by the governor.
How did residents of Huntington Beach and Fountain
Valley fare? Each was mandated to cut back 20 percent.
The reality is comparisons of July 2015 vs. July 2013
show that residents of Fountain Valley have cut back 28
percent and residents of Huntington Beach have cut back
26 percent for that month. The following chart shows how
they both compared to the state average.
Its a very good start, but we have a long way to go.
The Orange County Water District (OCWD; the District) is doing its part to manage the
groundwater basin
and provide reliable
water to its providers
and their consumers
advanced
through
technologies. Groundwater levels in the
basin are very low
right now, and are
about 80 percent depleted, but are still
within the normal historic operating range due
to careful planning and
the GWRS.
Over the last three
years, OCWD has invested more than $200
million to purchase imported water to replenish
the basin and offset major
impacts of the drought and to expand the Groundwater
Replenishment System (GWRS). The GWRS now produces 100 million gallons of water each dayenough to

alifornia is experiencing its


fourth year of what is now described as an exceptional
drought: Exceptional or
widespread crop/pasture loss; a shortage
of water in reservoirs and streams
creating a water
emergency. This is
the definition of
National Oceanic
and Atmospheric

Administration (NOAA).
Measurements in the Sierra Nevada Mountains indicate
the lowest snowpack levels ever recorded. Many are anticipating a wet winter because of an El Nio, which is an
above normal surface temperature in the southeast Pacific.
El Nio refers to the Christ child because it often occurs
at Christmas or midwinter. Forecasts* through October
show that the drought will not only persist, it will intensify. Even with a wet winter, there will not be enough rain
to make up for the four years of drought California has
sustained.
The administration of California Governor Jerry Brown
has implemented measures to save water and invest in
new technologies that will make California more drought
resilient. We are also now mandated to significantly cut
back our water usage, a response due to low percentages
of voluntary water reductions in 2014.
With the mandatory reductions, each urban water supplier has been put into one of eight tiers which are assigned a conservation standard, ranging between
reductions of four percent and 36 percent. It is based on a
per person goal of using 75 gallons per day and takes into
consideration that some of us have been using water efficiently and others have not. The figures will be compared
to water consumption of the same month starting in 2013.
At the end of February 2016, the water districts will be
evaluated for their compliance.
At this writing, the most recent state conservation effort

satisfy the water


needs of 850,000
people. This constitutes about 25 percent of
our water portfolio.
Investments to generate more local water costs money
and will most likely be seen as part of an increase in your
water bill. Thats another incentive for us all to use water
more efficiently. Without the GWRS investment, we
would only be able to get approximately 60 percent of our
supplies from the local groundwater basin, versus 70 percent today. With groundwater costing $402 AF and
imported water costing
about $1000 AF, the investment is a sound one
that has brought us more
reliability.
Since about half of
water use is for outdoor
landscaping, residents
might find a lot of ways
to conserve water
through smart California landscaping. The
state is giving incentives to conserve in
other ways by offering
a number of rebates
for items such as efficient irrigation control and sprinklers, rain
barrels and rain gutters. Visit the website of your local
water provider and www.bewaterwise.com to learn more
about drought resilient landscaping, water conservation
programs, rebates, and mandates.

Who says mothers aren't powerful?

Esther Carlstone (mom.me) tells us about: SARA GEORGE BAGLEY

Sara George Bagley (1806-1883) was a key figure in the history of American working women. Born in Candia, New Hampshire, she worked in the Lowell, Massachusetts, textile mills and organized in both Lowell and in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Bagley was perhaps the most visible and articulate of the female labor leaders of the
period, agitating, petitioning and speaking for safe working conditions and decent
wages for women textile workers. She led the Ten Hour Movement in Massachusetts, which sought to reduce womens working day from 13 and 14 hours to 10. In
the 1840s, she was part of the leadership of the New England Workingmens Association and other male-dominated groups. Nothing is yet known of Sara Bagleys life
after 1848, including the date of her death.

other sensitive habitats. As I started to hear about


this, I thought, Well, wouldnt it be useful if the
UAV was biodegradable, so if it crashed somewhere that was sensitive, it wouldnt matter if it
dissolved, Rothschild says.
So Rothschild created a biodegradable drone
with a team of students in the 2014 International
Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition. The teams prototype took its first short flight
in November 2014 at the iGEM competition in
Boston. The drone, which resembles a cardboard
cup holder, is made primarily of mycelium grown
by New York-based Ecovative Design. The team
grew cellulose leather-like sheets to coat the
mycelium body and then covered the sheets with
proteins sourced from the saliva of paper wasps
a water resistant material that the insects use to
cover their nests. The biodegradable drone body is
certainly a step forward, though the drone still uses
a standard battery, motor and propellers.
Rothschilds dream is to make a UAV where
every part is made with something biodegradable,
but for now, she says, realistically, this is going to
be much more of a hybrid vehicle.

Looking For a
Wine List Bargain?
Go Off the Beaten Path

ne recent Saturday morning, a


friend sent me the wine list for
Green Zebra, one of Chicago's
top vegetarian restaurants, and asked for
my advice. He was dining there that
evening with friends who enjoyed wine
but weren't obsessive about it. So he
would be tasked with ordering for the table.
When hanging out with other wine enthusiasts or having a nice meal
at home, my friend will happily open a bottle that costs upwards of $30.
But when dining out, he typically opts for beer, as restaurant markups
are too hard to stomach.
I could see his conundrum. As the resident wine geek, my friend would
be expected to find something delicious. But ordering the sort of wine he'd
open at home -- say, Littorai's "Les Larmes" Pinot
Noir, which retails for $45
but is on Green Zebra's list
for $95 -- would be
gauche.
My advice was simple. I
urged him to look for offthe-beaten-path varieties
from off-the-beaten-path
regions. As New York
University economics professor Karl Storchmann
once explained, "[The
market] adds a premium for certain places or grapes."
Consider Pinot Noir. The best examples of the variety are seductive
and ephemeral, to be sure. But because Pinot Noir is so popular -- and
so challenging and expensive to grow -- even "budget" options that offer
little in the way of character are quite expensive.
Pinot Noir obviously does well with the fare at Green Zebra; when it
comes to reds, the sommelier has dedicated 35 percent of her list to the
variety. The wines range from $48 to $105 per bottle.
But if I were in my friend's shoes, I'd order the $55 Gamay from
Georges Descombes, one of the top producers in Beaujolais. Pinot Noir
is quite different than Gamay, of course. But serious examples of the variety effortlessly combine vibrant acidity with depth and complexity, just
like top Pinot Noir.
And I wouldn't shy away from the list's least expensive option, a $36
Cabernet Franc from Calcu, a producer in Chile's Colchagua Valley.

Back To School!

New Year - New Food

atie Workman, author of the popular


blog and award-winning cookbook
"The Mom 100," tackles weeknight
dinner in addition to breakfast, lunch, snacks
and dessert in her new cookbook Dinner
Solved! With kids already heading back to
school to kick off the new school year, she
gave us the scoop on what food trends we can
expect to see, including which healthy items
will be popular (and the type of food that will
be phased out).

Q:

What are some trends you're seeing


when it comes to back-to-school foods for
2015? Are there any healthy items that are
going to be big this school year?

A:

David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com, which was named
Best Overall Wine Blog" at the 2013 Wine Blog Awards.
His columns are housed at Grape Collective.

Gluten-free continues to be a huge and


growing trend, with all kinds of frozen and refrigerated options such as pizzas, pasta, waffles
and ethnic-inspired cuisine conveniently available. The frozen food aisles gets more and
more international all the time, with global flavors being seen in many of the convenient
products available, such as Asian stir-fries, In-

dian flavored chicken dishes and Mediterranean pizza options. The availability of organic frozen foods are growing as well, with
the options of steam-able bagged vegetables
constantly growing and becoming
perfect meal additions for
busy mornings or hectic
work weeks. The options for shortcut
cooking have grown
as well things that
help you assemble
a meal without
making everything
from scratch, from
different varieties
of prepared chicken
that are recipe-ready
to new dough options
like frozen puff pastry
that offer lots of interesting, dinnertime and/or dessert
inspiration, such as a potpie topping
or tart base. And, there are so many great packaged, healthy snacks available these days, with

The Local News, September 01, 2015 hbnews1@aol.com 714.914.9797

Since there isn't


much demand
for either Cabernet Franc or
wines
from
Chile, this bottle
essentially
comes with two built-in discounts. Plus, at high- David White
end restaurants everywhere, sommeliers take
great care to make sure their inexpensive wines are impressive, knowing
that such offerings are introductions to their programs.
The search for affordability is even easier with Green Zebra's whites.
While six of the list's 26 offerings are Chardonnay, with prices ranging
from $56 to $90, the list is packed with unusual varieties from unheralded regions. For $40, patrons can
enjoy an intensely aromatic Gewurztraminer from
Elena Walch in Alto Adige, Italy, that's full of charm.
For just $38, there's a delightful blend of Assyrtiko
and Athiri from Domaine Sigalas in Santorini, Greece.
For even less, there's a rich blend of Roussanne and
Viognier from Arizona. The choices go on.
While the list at Green Zebra is well curated -- and
well-priced -- it isn't particularly unique. Any restaurant with a serious wine program will make sure its
cellar is stocked with fun, food-friendly options that
won't break the bank. At Bourbon Steak in Washington, D.C., for example, wine director Julian Mayor offers dozens of affordable, offbeat wines in a section
of his list dubbed "Secrets of the Sommelier."
Asking for advice helps, too. Most sommeliers are
keen to help patrons find the perfect wine, regardless of price. When dining out, one of my friends simply asks for "something weird" -- and he's
almost always pleased with both the wine and its price. One recent
evening at a D.C. steakhouse, his request resulted in an affordable, captivating blend of Savagnin and Chardonnay from legendary Jura producer Jacques Puffeney.
Wines from blue-chip regions like Burgundy and Napa are almost always expensive. Fortunately, sommeliers love stocking their lists with
bottles that they, too, can afford to drink. So next time you're looking for
a bargain, just go off the beaten path.

more coming out every day. There are chips


made from everything from lentils to quinoa,
with all kinds of interesting seasonings. Some
pretty great packaging by the way!
Lots of fridge and freezer staples make
great midday snacks, such as frozen
edamame pods with a sprinkling of
salt and lemon juices, cheese
sticks with flavorings like
jalapeno (which my older son
really likes), mini pizzas
found already-made in the
freezer aisle which you can
add a couple of extra toppings to, if you like. You
can also pair bite-sized
snacks such as frozen
taquitos with an easy homemade dipping sauce. In general,
the different flavorings of snacks
are getting more and more out
there, which is the industry trying to

of kids and millennials who are always craving

Remember when a striped bike lane was a big deal?

here are many unspectacular but important things a city can do to gain
our consideration for this list.
Maybe you've heard of them, or maybegiven
the pace of change these daysyou've already
begun to enjoy them: segregated bike lanes,
municipal bike racks and bike boulevards, to
name a few. If you have those things in your

local governmentanother key factor. To
make our Top 50, a city must also support a vibrant and diverse bike culture. It must have
smart, savvy bike shops. A few notes: We considered only cities with populations of 100,000
or more. We strove for geographical diversity,
to avoid having a list dominated by California's

China Drives
Rates Down

ortgage rates are back to testing the lowest levels of 2015.


The primary catalyst for the recent drop is growing concerns over Chinas
slowing economy. As the manufacturing engine for a global economy, the Chinese markets serve as a bellwether for the rest of the
world. And since the US is
the largest consumer of
goods produced in China, a
slowing economy there is
symptomatic of a slowing
economy here.
The effect has been catastrophic for the stock markets. In the three trading days
between August 20th and
August 24th, the Dow Jones
Industrial average lost nearly
1500 points. This was
capped by a near 600 point
drop on August 24th marking
the single worst day for
stocks in over four years.
As usual, what is bad for
stocks is good for bonds.
Mortgage bonds have been
among the beneficiaries and
have rallied over the same
three day trading period. Mortgage bonds
are back to testing the highs of 2015, meaning that mortgage rates are once again testing the lows of the year.

But really, in the face of such staggering


losses on the stock markets, gains in the
bond markets have been rather limited. Ah
yes, there is a side-effect. The plunge in the
US stock markets has economists now

doubting that the Federal Reserve will raise


rates in September as previously predicted.
Just one week previously, economists put
the odds of a Fed rate hike at better than

Arnaud Dufour

50/50. Now the


same oddsmakers have updated
the chances of a rate hike to only one in
four.
The result? A weaker dollar. In the same
three day time span of trading, the Euro has
gone from $1.10 to $1.16. The
longer the Fed maintains their
accommodative policy, the
greater concerns the global community has about the strength of
the dollar as a currency. A
weaker dollar makes dollarbased assets (like mortgage
bonds) less attractive.
The net effect is that a weaker
Chinese economy has pushed
stocks lower which helped the
bond market, but the lower stock
market has weakened the dollar
which limited the gains in the
bond markets.
Limited, yes. But still back to
lows for the year. Financial advisors recommend checking the
health of your financial portfolio
every six months. Ones mortgage is very much a part of their
overall financial portfolio. Those who
havent investigated their mortgage options
in a while may find now to be the best time
to do so.

Did You Know


They Were Spies

The espionage game is a thankless racket the


sign of being good at your job is that nobody can
ever know. Thats what makes the people in this list
so surprising. They were well-known in other walks
of life but managed to fit in some undercover work
for the military on the side. So lets blow the cover
of people you didnt know were spies.
CHRISTOPHER LEE

One of the most legendary horror actors of all time,


Christopher Lee is famous for his ability to take on
some seriously dark roles. Its fair to say that some of
those skills were fostered during World War II. Initially enlisting with the Finnish army during the Winter War, Lee was transferred to the Royal Air Force
and found a home in the intelligence division.
Lee was then recruited into the ultra-secret Special
Operations Executive, which keeps all operational details under lock and key. After the war, Lee then
worked to track down escaped Nazi war criminals and
bring them to justice.
