Get What’s Yours has proven itself to be the definitive book
about how to navigate the forbidding maze of Social Security
and emerge with the highest possible benefits. It is an engaging
manual of tactics and strategies written by well-known financial
commentators that is unobtainable elsewhere. You could try reading
all 2,728 rules of the Social Security system (and the thousands
of explanations of these rules), but academia’s Kotlikoff, the
popular press’s Moeller, and public television’s Solman explain the
Social Security system just as comprehensively, and a lot more
comprehensibly. Moreover, they demonstrate that what you don’t know
can seriously hurt you: wrong decisions about which Social Security
benefits to apply for cost individual retirees tens of thousands of
dollars in lost income every year. (Some of those people are even
in the book.)
A coauthor of the New York Times bestselling guide to Social Security
Get What’s Yours authors an essential companion to explain Medicare, the
nation’s other major benefit for older Americans. Learn how to maximize
your health coverage and save money.
Social Security provides the bulk of most retirees’ income and Medicare
guarantees them affordable health insurance. But few people know what
Medicare covers and what it doesn’t, what it costs, and when to sign up.
Nor do they understand which parts of Medicare are provided by the
government and how these work with private insurance plans
—Medicare Advantage, drug
insurance, and Medicare supplement insurance.
Do you understand Medicare’s parts A, B, C, D? Which Part D drug
plan is right and how do you decide? Which is better, Medigap or
Medicare Advantage? What do you do if Medicare denies payment for
a procedure that your doctor says you need? How do you navigate the
appeals process for denied claims? If you’re still working or have
a retiree health plan, how do those benefits work with Medicare? Do
you know about the annual enrollment period for Medicare, or about
lifetime penalties for late enrollment, or any number of other key
Health costs are the biggest unknown expense for older Americans, who
are turning sixty-five at the rate of 10,000 a day. Understanding and
navigating Medicare is the best way to save health care dollars and use
them wisely. In Get What’s Yours for Medicare, retirement expert Philip
Moeller explains how to understand all these important choices and make
the right decisions for your health and wealth now—and for the future.
Eating disorders are very serious
and many times fatal.
Calm, pleasure and satisfaction is what most people experience
after eating. But for people with eating disorders, food brings
anxiety, disturbance and noise. Dr. Hill takes a look from the

how the future holds a different approach to manage the illness
while bringing these patients hope.

Too Much Sugar Linked To Reduced Memory, Brain Volume
Alice G. Walton , CONTRIBUTOR
The sugar-brain connection isn’t just a theory anymore.
There’s some fairly convincing and reproducible evidence
that too much sugar in the diet is linked to cognitive and
brain deficits. Two new papers, both deriving data from
the long-running Framingham Heart Study, bear this out.
One study finds that sugary drinks are linked to pre-clinical
Alzheimer’s disease: Poor memory and reduced brain volume in
certain areas. The other study finds that artificial sweeteners
aren’t much better—they’re linked to a greater risk of stroke and
of dementia. So it seems like we’re damned if we do and damned
if we don't, at least when it comes to sweetened drinks.

How Drinking More Spring
or Filtered Water Can Improve
Every Facet of Your Health
By Dr. Mercola
With all the different types of water out
there and all the hype that goes with each,
it can be very easy to get confused about
which types of water are really best for
your health. And, if you find yourself
struggling with the environmental concerns
of bottled water versus the dangerous chemicals
in tap water, I understand.
That's why I created this page to help clear
up some confusion and help you take control
of your health.
You should be drinking enough water to
turn your urine a light-colored yellow.
If you are outside on a hot day or engaging
in strenuous activity, it is advisable to
increase your water intake as needed. It
is also important to note that as you age,
your thirst mechanism works less efficiently.
Older adults need to pay more attention to
the color of their urine to see if their
water intake is adequate.
In choosing the right type of water for you and
your family, you want to aim for pH balance.
Distilled water is too acidic and alkaline water
is too alkaline. The ideal pH of your water should
be between 6.5 to 7.5, which is neutral.
Mountain spring water is in this ideal range.
It is some of the healthiest water on the planet
because it is "living water". Living water,
like "living food" is in its raw, natural
state the way nature intended.
HealthMap, a team of researchers, epidemiologists and software

audience including libraries, local health departments,
governments, and international travelers. HealthMap brings
together disparate data sources, including online news

Generally, if you drink enough fluid so that you rarely feel
thirsty and your urine is colorless or light yellow — and
measures about 6.3 cups (1.5 liters) or more a day if you
were to keep track — your fluid intake is probably adequate.
If you're concerned about your fluid intake or have health
issues, check with your doctor or a registered dietitian.

understudied areas and recommendations
for future monitoring
Evaluating and enhancing resilience in water infrastructure is a
crucial step towards more sustainable urban water management.
As a prerequisite to enhancing resilience, a detailed understanding
is required of the inherent resilience of the underlying system.
Differing from traditional risk analysis, here we propose a global
resilience analysis (GRA) approach that shifts the objective from
analysing multiple and unknown threats to analysing the more identifiable
and measurable system responses to extreme conditions, i.e. potential
failure modes. GRA aims to evaluate a system's resilience to a possible
failure mode regardless of the causal threat(s) (known or unknown, external
or internal). The method is applied to test the resilience of four water
distribution systems (WDSs) with various features to three typical failure
modes (pipe failure, excess demand, and substance intrusion). The study
reveals GRA provides an overview of a water system's resilience to various
failure modes. For each failure mode, it identifies the range of corresponding
failure impacts and reveals extreme scenarios (e.g. the complete loss of water
supply with only 5% pipe failure, or still meeting 80% of demand despite over
70% of pipes failing). GRA also reveals that increased resilience to one failure
mode may decrease resilience to another and increasing system capacity may
delay the system's recovery in some situations. It is also shown that selecting
an appropriate level of detail for hydraulic models is of great importance in
resilience analysis. The method can be used as a comprehensive diagnostic
framework to evaluate a range of interventions for improving system resilience
in future studies.

Juniper, a large tree-like shrub growing on the rocky slopes
of this area in elevations up to 5000'. You might find it
growing around Joshua Trees, as it is here in Pipes Canyon,
or more commony, with Pinon Pine. The flavor is familiar
to gin drinkers, and hits citrus notes as they take a turn
for the bitter. I think it pairs fantastically with dairy,
and historically, it's lauded as the essential seasoning for
wild game. So take a shot...any kind, you can't go wrong! —Sarah Witt
10+ Independent Online
and Why America Needs More of Them
There was a time when the nightly news was synonymous with
the words objective, impartial, fair and balanced. Reporters
and newscasters saw it as their duty and badge of honor to
inform the public, as factually as possible, of the happenings
in this country and around the world. Today, instead of
journalists such as Walter Cronkite, a legend in his own
right who brought the scandals of Watergate and the Vietnam War
to the American people unfiltered, we have the major media
outlets and their Talking Heads blindly supporting “facts”
as told to them by the government, corporations and anyone else
they deem worthy. Unfortunately, as the Iraq war has taught us,
perceived truths are not always the facts and thousands of
Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died as a consequence.
It is extremely disturbing that the mainstream media’s abject
failure to do its job and the public's abject failure to demand
that they do so could result in a "mistake" of such magnitude.
"We Don't have an investigative media in America
Our reporters donnot go after facts. They are not
'reporters," they are 'reapters.'"

Mountain girls like me aren’t supposed to like the desert.
I never understood the allure, but it had me my first visit.
My friend owns a house in Joshua Tree, CA and drives there
every weekend from LA, where she works. It has her too. She
invited me out a couple of years ago, and I’ve been back a
handful of times since then. I don’t know if it’s the laid-back
pace, tranquility, light, or characters, but I’ve never felt
more relaxed than when I’m there.
The Mojave is the smallest and driest of
the four North American deserts, covering
approximately 50,000 square miles including
portions in California, Nevada, Arizona,
and Utah (MacKay, 2003). The region is
topographically diverse, composed of a
series of mountains and valleys as part
of the Basin and Range Geomorphic Province.
Elevations range from 282 feet below sea
level in Death Valley to high mountain peaks
above 11,000 feet, but generally lie between
2,000 and 6,000 feet. The Mojave is often
considered a transitional zone between the Great
Basin to the north and the Colorado Desert to
the south, exhibiting some of the characteristics
of each region.
Vintage trailers are the bomb and this one sits

You get 24 hours and that's it. Now is the time to affect
change and take action. I started to take action today by
introducing my students to Civics, using chess as a political

most young people have no idea how the government
really works, let alone how voting works (popular vote versus Electorial College).
What’s Jr. High or High School without civics, right?!

Dr. Wallach's Ten Bad Foods and Good Foods
Critical Health News
Ten Bad Foods
Ten Bad Foods
Below are recommendations from Dr. Joel Wallach
and Dr. Peter Glidden that everybody should limit
or ELIMINATE from their diet.
Oats, Oatmeal even if it says that it’s gluten free.
Fried Food – nothing fried!
You should boil, broil or bake
and never more than medium rare for red meat.
Oils – Oils oxidize when they come into contact with
the air (become rancid). Since almost all oil is continually
exposed to some air from the time it is produced, the process
of oxidation has begun in even the freshest oil. These oxidized
oils cause inflammation and cell damage.
(Youngevity's essential oils are injected into the gel caps
surrounded by nitrogen to prevent oxidation.)
Well done red meat (IE No burned fats) – (rare or medium-rare is ok!)
If you grill your food, try to have something between the food and the fire
(like aluminium foil) so the juice doesn’t drip onto the flame and deposit
dangerous things on the meat.
Any nitrates added to meat – (ie: deli meats) tell your butcher
NO NITRATES or NITRITES!
No carbonated drinks of any kind within one hour before, during
or one hour after meals.
Skin of a baked potato (or yam, or sweet potato).
If you boil a potato, you can eat the skins.
Ten Bad Foods
Dr. Joel Wallach and Dr. Peter Glidden are EXPERTS
in medical nutrition and recommend the Good Food/Bad
Food list to everyone. There are exceptions for diabetics
You must clean up your diet for
good health and to absorb nutrients.
As a bonus, here are the foods that are GOOD for you,
as recommended by Dr. Joel Wallach and Dr. Peter Glidden:
TO COOK EGGS YOU MAY:
Poach; This is his number one choice because the water
never reaches a temperature greater than 212 degrees.
Scramble with butter over very low heat and only until
they are just setting up. If you can hear them cooking
it’s too hot.
Soft boil with the yolk still runny. Some call them “2 minute
eggs”. (Hard-boiled egg yolks with a greenish coating
have had their cholesterol degraded.)
Raw Eggs are good BUT you must increase your Biotin.
Mixed, Salted Nuts—no peanuts
Any carbohydrate (except oatmeal) that is “Gluten Free” is OK.
Pure Buckwheat (Isn’t wheat).
Couscous (made from pearl millet only).
Corn (GMO Free)
Vegetables & Fruits
Oils Fats and Sugars
Salt - Salt your food to taste. To properly digest your food you
need stomach acid and salt helps in the creation of stomach acid.
Nut Butters—no extra sugar
Lard (yes, lard!)
Use Butter – Margarine is simply oil in a solid state. If you cook with
butter, make sure the heat is low enough that the butter doesn’t turn
brown in the pan.
4-8, 8oz glasses of filtered water each day. Avoid soft plastic bottles.
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)
20,000 ORAC points of anti-oxidants daily.
Foods high in ORAC – Blue berries, cinnamon, walnuts,
curry, dark skinned fruits, unprocessed cocoa powder,
acai berry, green tea, red wine (research for more foods high in ORAC).
A note of caution to those using Youngevity products.
Phytates bind to minerals in the Beyond Tangy Tangerine, Plant Derived
minerals, and other Youngevity products containing minerals.
The phytates interfere with the absorption of minerals and wastes them.
If you eat phytates, take your minerals at least two hours before,
or two hours after you consume the phytates.
Examples of pytates:
Nuts, seeds, rice, beans, spinach, peas, lentils, legumes.
Do an internet search to find more foods that contain phytates.

Top 10 Proven Classified Ad Selling Tips To Guarantee A Successful Sale
By Janet Doherty
Determine the items around your home that
you no longer need. Once you have collected
these items, confirm that they are in working
order and in good selling condition.
If items have been in storage for a long
period of time, you may need to clean
them up to make them more attractive
to potential buyers.
After all items are collected, do your research.
Determine the value of your items and decide
whether it would be worth you time and effort
to place a classified ad.Some things will do
well on their own while others may do better
in a garage sale setting. If certain items do
not have enough value to justify placing an
advertisementand you are not interested in
hosting a garage sale, donate these items to
a local charity for a nice tax deduction.
Knowing the Tricks and Tips of Free Classified Advertising
All free classified sites are not created equal.
You should focus on a few good sites and post
your ads regularly in those sites only. Your starting
point is Google search. Go to google.com and search
for “free classifieds” and “free ads”. From the search
result pages, visit 10 to 15 sites and register in those
sites. If a site asks too many questions during the registration
process, abandon the site and go to the next site. Why
should you have to provide all your personalinformation
for the site’s benefits? Good sites will only ask minimal
questions to setup your account so that you can edit,
delete and renew your ads. Also, look for sites that
will allow you to post without any registration.
Write a precise ad using 80 to 100 words. Write about
benefits of your products and services for ad viewers.
Try to think benefits in terms of generating extra income,
improving health and relationships and providing a sense of
good feelings when they use your products and services.

Like Big Sur, Marfa, and Taos, Joshua Tree has
long been an outpost on the vagabond-hipster
trail, favored by explorers looking for the
wide-open, Wild West feeling of the modern-day
frontier. In the 1960s, this desert region 140
miles east of Los Angeles, famous for its gnarled,
pleasingly grotesque trees and lunar-like boulders,
began luring artists and musicians hoping to escape
the urban glare. Country-rock pioneer Gram Parsons
notoriously overdosed at the Joshua Tree Inn in 1973.
Numerous other musicians of that era, like Keith Richards,
Donovan, and Jim Morrison, were also fond of taking
the occasional, well, desert trip.
In the late 1980s, Noah Purifoy, the late assemblage
artist and a founder of the Watts Towers Arts Center
who just had a career retrospective at the Los Angeles
County Museum of Art, moved to the Mojave and built an
astonishing 10-acre outdoor museum constructed entirely of
junk, including old vacuums, television sets, and computer
parts. In 2000, a decade and a half before Schneider
decamped from Brooklyn, installation artist Andrea
Zittel—the patron saint of the latest wave of desert
relocation—left her 200- square- foot Brooklyn studio
and established A-Z West, a 35-acre compound adjacent
to the park. It’s a kind of utopian art-life experiment,
a place where she creates her own clothing, furniture,
and food. The High Desert Test Sites, environmental artworks
sponsored by Zittel’s nonprofit of the same name, are all
over the desert, seemingly as native to the place as its
hardy flora and fauna.
The Hi-Desert Cultural Center is a many-faceted, multi-venue
facility for performing and visual arts. It is the largest
arts organization in the region and is a fully-compliant
not-for-profit organization registered with the Internal
Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) entity incorporated in the
State of California and located in the city of Joshua Tree
in San Bernardino County. The Center and its facilities
are not government owned or subsidized.
The Hi-Desert Cultural Center was started by retired actors,
directors, and producers from Hollywood and first began serving
the cultural needs of its surrounding communities in 1964.
In 1967, the Center was officially incorporated as a not-for-profit
under the name Hi-Desert Playhouse Guild, Inc. and by 1980
construction on its main theater building was completed.
The Center rapidly became a cultural icon and landmark for
the area, drawing visitors from throughout southern California.
The Center then added a second theater and rehearsal hall to
accommodate the growing needs of the area.
Yucca Valley started out as a hamlet called "Lone Star,"
a waystation for watering horses and mules between Banning
and the Twentynine Palms mining district. A few homesteaders
settled in the west end of the Morongo Basin, their numbers
growing after World War I veterans whose lungs had been damaged
in gas attacks discovered the area's clean air helped them heal.
In the late 1950s, members of Los Angeles society not particularly
drawn to the pool party lifestyle of Palm Springs discovered the
Morongo Basin, and desert subdivisions began to attach themselves
to Route 62.
That's a fine recipe for a small city, a low-rent Sedona or Telluride,
and you can still see the roots of that neglected future Yucca Valley
in the scattering of shops around Route 62 and Pioneertown Road, in
Yucca Valley's Old Town. It's not a recipe for the 40-square-mile
scattering of strip malls that Yucca Valley became.
It's not just the Walmart. (It never is.) The stretch of Route 62 that
runs the few miles between Old Town and the new Walmart is chockablock
with seedy-looking convenience stores, a fair representation of downscale
fast food chains, buildings that once housed larger chain stores, payday
loan businesses and nail shops. Two gigantic national chain drugstores
each occupy a corner of a block of land that trembles before the developers'
machinery. Only the reluctance to lend money to obviously doomed enterprises
bankers seem to have developed since 2008 has kept the land unbuilt so far.
The boosters think positive nonetheless. A vacant lot behind one of those
drugstores bears a cheerful looking sign advertising the businesses the
developer would like to think will occupy the site as if they're already
up and running. One of the businesses advertised on that putative commercial
space now occupied by a prematurely bulldozed desert is a Vietnamese restaurant.
I confess to having mixed feelings about that one. It would be nice to have a
Vietnamese restaurant that close. And despite my ambivalence, which I think
is shared by some of my neighbors who head into Yucca to buy supplies and then
leave as quickly as possible, there is nothing about Yucca Valley that would
suggest the town could ever support the amount of business development the
boosters dream of.
