Transcript for Angelina Jolie’s doctor shares tips on how to prevent breast cancer

is breast cancer awareness month join the by surgical breast cancer specialist founder of the pink lotus breast center, Dr. Kristi funk and she’s here to tell us all about the new trends in breast cancer treatment offering hope and I can’t help but see everybody here, fellow thrivers, I don’t use the word survivors. That are here and bless you. For the continued work tt you do, always feel uplifted being in your 3re7bs. What’s the biggest headline. Biggest headline, better screenings so 3D mammography available in breast centers everywhere. I love this technology especially for dense breasted women where those cancers get camouflaged and hide behind the breast tissue. We’re finding 34% more breast cancers with 17% fewer false positive callback. Oh, my gosh. That’s why it’s more effective. Think of them like a loaf of raisin bread which who doesn’t, smash that between two plates and you tell me, find the raisins, that’s your typical digital. Now same squishing in radiation, sorry, ladies but there’s your 3ding I’m seeing 15 slices of bread and suddenly, whoop, there’s the raisin. Oh, my gosh. When you put it like that it makes perfect sense. You were asking me before we went on the air diagnosed in 2007 with breast cancer, triple negative. Did you have family history, you asked. No. I was shocked to find out 80 to 85% of women who are diagnosed, no family history. No family history. We’re always told about heredity. It is a myth if you look at everybody only 90 to 95% mash I mean 90 to 95% don’t like you have any family history or it’s from — 5% to 10% is from an inherited mutation so you have 85% of the people with not a single relative with breast cancer so 5% to 10% we can blame on genes, 5% to 10% is crazy bad luck like getting caught in a mass shooting. You don’t understand it. 80 to 85% we understand, 1.7 million invasive breast cancers being diagnosed this year. Over 1 million of them I know how to control and prevent. Let’s talk about that because you’re going to help us do that because some of it starts with our diet as we — look at these beautiful people in pink. Oh, yes. Come on over. Show us. It begins with the diet. It begins can the diet. Nutrition, exercise, so much stuff we can control. The caped superhero of all superfoods is broccoli. The ingredients in these vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts are masterminds at seeking and destroying cancer cells. Moving on, berries. So I love antioxidants in berries, blueberries, blackberry, free radical involve vengers so berries make cancer cells commit suicide. It’s called apoptosis. I blend a cup a day into a shake. Frozen berries release polyphenols faster so it’s one that’s better frozen. Some amazing superfoods. Turmeric. I’ve heard of that. I put that in my eggs. A quarter teaspoon a day. Did you know it is 2,000% more bio available with two thing, piperine, combine it with and fat soluble so need some fat with your egg, well, the yolk will have it but I put a tablespoon of ground flack seeds. It’s anti-estrogen. This, I’m sure nobody knows what it is. A study looked at over 31 foods. Everything we eat from twinkies to apples, okay. This was at the tippy top of the antioxidant scale. The Indian gooseberry. — No. So the Indian gooseberry comes in powdered or liquidform. A tablespoon of this in my shake every day. 75 times more potent than goej XI berries. Why is soy here? We’ve heard you are not supposed to have it in your diet. It’s a myth. We don’t know what that does this your body, stay away. Wrong, wrong, wrong, five huge studies since 2009 show if you consume particularly whole food soy so soybeans, tempeh, miso, anti-estrogens in your body, 60% less breast cancer, 29% less death from breast cancer from survivors. My goodness. Only 30 seconds left. One thing I want to say, plant, how they help actually, simple things in your home. So, forward slash bulletproof. They absorb toxins from the air. Did you know that? Things we want to think about in terms of what you can do in your home, we’ve got all of these endocrine disrupting compounds, edcs and ago like estrogen and touch them all day. Gas pump, paper receipt, wash your hands every day before you eat. Plain old soap is better than anti-bacterial. All right. She could go on and on.

Sands Bethlehem sets table revenue record as private equity group kicks casino’s tires

sands-bethlehem-table-game-revenue-recordA New York-based private equity group says it’s preparing to make an offer to buy the Sands Bethlehem casino in Pennsylvania.

On Friday, Allentown-based independent television channel WFMZ-TV reported that New York City private investment group Keating & Associates was preparing an offer for Sands Bethlehem, the Las Vegas Sands property that is the state’s perennial top table game earner and its number-two slots performer.

Keating’s chief strategist Alex Fredericks told the station that “we suspect in the next 30 days we’ll tender a very serious offer.” Fredericks said the portfolio of his “relatively new” group did not currently contain any casino properties.

Regardless, Keating appears smitten with the US casino industry, and Fredericks claimed that Keating was trying to establish an east coast casino beachhead before expanding to Las Vegas and Miami (where casinos currently aren’t legal, but what the hey-hey).

Sands Bethlehem has been on the block for a while now, with a $1.3b bid by rival MGM Resorts falling through this spring. It’s unclear whether Keating has this kind of financing at its disposal, and not everyone is convinced Keating’s Bethlehem bid is serious. Sands Bethlehem reps have yet to comment on the report.

Keating’s name recently surfaced in media reports claiming that the group had made a $225m bid to acquire the mothballed Revel/TEN casino in Atlantic City. That report has been denied by Revel/TEN’s owner, Florida developer Glenn Straub, who also denied similar reports about a Colorado-based firm reaching a deal for the casino.

Fredericks told WFMZ that Keating was preparing to finalize its Revel offer, and insisted that Keating’s co-chairman Jeff Keating had indeed met with Straub, whose denials were explained away as a “business ploy.”

Meanwhile, Sands Bethlehem continues to dominate the monthly table game revenue charts. Figures released Monday by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board showed Sands well out in front with nearly $22.7m in table revenue in September, a year-on-year improvement of nearly 17% and a new personal best for the property, eclipsing the $21.9m the venue reported in April.

Parx Casino in Philadelphia retained its traditional table bridesmaid role, generating just over $15m (+6.8%), while SugarHouse ranked third with $9.4m (+7.4%). All told, only two of the state’s 12 casinos were in negative table territory for the month, and the statewide total gained 9.9% to $75.6m.

Parx is traditionally the state’s combined slots and table revenue king, but Sands Bethlehem’s record table run allowed it to eclipse Parx in September, albeit by the narrowest of margins. Sands Bethlehem earned a combined $47.5m in September, $59k higher than Parx.

Let’s Talk Month and How It Helped My Relationship

By Isabella Gonzalez, 16, Staff Writer

October 10, 2017

October may be home to Halloween, but it’s also Let’s Talk Month, a month dedicated to open communication between young people and their parents or caregivers. This campaign encourages discussion about dating, sex and relationships. Conversations like these shouldn’t be scary or stressful! It’s important to make sure you’re on the same page to avoid confusion and anxiety. After all, establishing communication is key to strengthening any type of relationship, whether it’s between a parent and teen or two partners. For example, inspired by Let’s Talk Month, my girlfriend and I decided to make an open communication policy!

Before we created the policy, whenever we got into a fight or were feeling nervous, we would just stop talking. We’d become strangers, avoiding eye contact and direct conversation. Everyone (not just us, but also our friends) would feel awkward and uncomfortable. Sure, they would try figuring out what was wrong, but all efforts were futile. Only we could fix our silence. Eventually, we admitted to ourselves that the quiet was harming our relationship and needed to stop.

Because of this, we set up a rule. To start, someone says, “Open communication time?” whether it’s the person who wants to talk or the partner who believes something is up. If the other responds with, “Ding, ding, ding!” both partners know it’s OK to talk about it. Since then, awkward silence hasn’t been a problem. We’re now a communicative couple that isn’t afraid to share anything.

So this October, try to find time between homework and crafting your Halloween costume to set up a communication guide that helps both you and a loved one!

Buyer reportedly found for mothballed Atlantic Club casino

atlantic-club-casino-hotel-soldAtlantic City’s rebirth continues with word that someone has expressed interest in acquiring the mothballed Atlantic Club Casino Hotel.

On Monday, the Press of Atlantic City reported that the Atlantic Club’s current owner, Florida-based TJM Properties, claimed to be preparing to announce the sale of the venue to an undisclosed buyer. TJM director of acquisitions Dale Schooley said a contract has been signed and that TJM was just waiting for the “hard money” to roll in later this week before announcing the buyer’s identity.

TJM acquired the Atlantic Club in June 2014, five months after the property was closed by its previous owner, the then-financially struggling casino operator Caesars Entertainment. The closure marked the first of five Atlantic City casinos to shut their doors that year in what marked the seaside gaming market’s nadir.

Various tire-kickers have mulled acquiring the Atlantic Club over the years, including rumors this March that the casino had been sold to R&R Development Group, who planned to convert the venue into a water park. However, those plans, like all the others, came to naught.

On Friday, AC Mayor Don Guardian told the paper that he’d spoken with two developers interested in the Atlantic Club property, although like Schooley, Guardian played coy as to their identities.

Meanwhile, the Atlantic Club has continued to erode, as amply demonstrated by the partial collapse late last month of the property’s covered entrance. No humans were hurt by the falling ceiling tiles, although the families of a number of rats have requested that mourners make a donation to the local cheesecake factory in lieu of flowers.

News of the Atlantic Club’s imminent sale came just one week after reports that another mothballed AC casino, Revel aka TEN, had found new ownership, although these reports have been denied by Revel/Ten’s owner, Florida developer Glenn Straub.

    Coming Out: Three Things to Know

    By Sarah Emily Baum, 17, Staff Writer

    October 6, 2017

    Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not.

    I wasn’t always this comfortable talking about my sexual orientation. It took years for me to get where I am, but now, I can finally say I am out, proud and happy.

    However, as we celebrate National Coming Out Day on October 11th, it’s important to remember not everyone feels safe coming out. Some LGBTQ people may get bullied in school, fired from their job or rejected by their family. National Coming Out Day may seem like it’s only for people who can proudly wave rainbow flags and lead the pride parade, but what if you aren’t ready to come out yet? This is a day to help improve that—a chance to increase visibility for LGBTQ people and hear their stories. Whether you’re still unsure of your identity or you feel unsafe because of it, know you are still loved, valid and no less brave and amazing for being who you are.

    When you’re ready to come out, you’ll know; but before you do, there are a few things to keep in mind.

    Nobody Is Entitled to Know Your Identity

    The first person I came out to was not my mom. It wasn’t my therapist. It wasn’t my best friend, or my second best friend or my third.  It was some girl I met in the park when I was 12. She said she was gay, and I said, “No way! I’m gay too!” and that was the first time I had ever said it out loud.

    I never saw her again.

    In fact, the people closest to me tended to be the very last to know. It was easier to come out to other kids online because if they judged me, I could just walk away without any repercussions. Meanwhile, I thought if my parents reacted badly, there would be no way to escape the consequences.

    Thankfully my parents were supportive when I came out, even if they were displeased with the fact they were dead last to know. I had come out to my camp counselor, my rabbi, even my congressman before I told my mother and father.

    But it wasn’t indicative of how much I care about my parents. It wasn’t me trying to “pull a fast one.” It was just who I was comfortable with, when I was comfortable with it.

    Coming out is YOUR journey. It is YOUR identity. You can come out to whoever you want, whenever you want, and deciding not to tell someone doesn’t make you deceitful or manipulative. This is about you. No one is entitled to know about something so deeply personal if you don’t want to share it.

    No One Can Define Your Identity but You

    Do you identify as a lesbian even though you like boys sometimes? That’s fine.

    Are you bisexual but you’ve only ever dated girls? No problem.

    Are you pansexual, asexual, demisexual, genderqueer, nonbinary or something else altogether? That’s all right!

    Just because you may not be learning about sexual orientation and gender identity at school doesn’t mean your identity isn’t valid. After all, things like gender and sexual orientation are strict categories made up to classify and organize a part of the human experience that, in actuality, includes grey areas.

    The only person who truly knows your sexual orientation or gender identity is you. Don’t let anyone force you into a label that doesn’t feel like the right fit. Some people never pick a label at all!

    Give It Time

    Coming out is not a “one and done” endeavor.

    Coming out is a process. Most people are assumed to be heterosexual and cisgender, so you’ll probably come out to lots of people over time.

    The idea of coming out as this perpetual journey can be daunting, even exhausting. But it will get easier. Your family might be taking it harshly, your friend might be acting awkward. But if they genuinely love and care for you, they will hopefully overcome that.

    And though you may lose some people, there will always be others who love and accept you as you are.

    Just keep searching. You’ll find each other.

    GAW Miners founder hit with over $9M verdict in Bitcoin fraud case

    The founder of the now-defunct cloud mining startups GAW Miners LLC and ZenMiner LLC has been ordered to fork over close to $10 million to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    GAW Miners founder hit with over $9M verdict in Bitcoin fraud caseOn Oct. 3, a federal judge in Connecticut told Homero Joshua Garza to pay $9.18 million, plus $742,774 in interest, in connection with a fraud case filed against him almost two years ago. The SEC filed a civil complaint in 2015 accusing Garza of operating a Ponzi scheme by selling $20 million worth of shares in a digital mining contract to more than 10,000 investors between August and December 2014.

    The contracts, or “hashlets,” supposedly entitle an investor to a share of Gaw Miners or ZenMiner’s profits from mining virtual currencies using the startups’ computers. The hashlets were touted to be “always profitable and never obsolete,” but the SEC said most of the investors “never recovered the full amount of their investments, and a few made a profit.”

    SEC Boston Regional Office Director Paul G. Levenson said at the time that “Garza and his companies cloaked their scheme in a technological sophistication and jargon, but the fraud was simple at its core: they sold what they did not own, misrepresented what they were selling, and robbed one investor to pay another.”

    Garza was initially facing three counts of securities fraud, with each carrying up to 25 years jail time, but his lawyers were able to bring it down to a single charge of wire fraud with a maximum penalty of 20 years. In July, Garza pleaded guilty to one charge of wire fraud in connection with activities relating to Gaw, Gaw Miners, ZenMiner, Zencoin and Paycoin.

    The court ordered Garza to pay the prepayment interest of $742,774 to the SEC within six months. The commission, in turn, was tasked to propose a distribution plan, which may include remitting the funds to the U.S. Attorney’s Office “for payment to the victims identified in the order of restitution that will be entered against the defendant.”

    “Defendant’s payment of disgorgement is deemed satisfied by the order of restitution that will be entered against him when he is sentenced in the related criminal case,” the court stated.
