This .0w- ~#9 Ten Tips To Help Women Take Care Of Their Health And The Health Of Their Families by Roba Whiteley (NAPSA)-For a majority of American families, women are the key decision makers when it comes to family health care. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, women are responsible for approximately 80 percent of all decisions on family health care and are more likely to be the caregivers when someone in the family becomes ill. Therefore, it's important for women to stay informed and knowledgeable about ways to take better care of their health and the health of their families. Here'are tips to help: Manage Stress 1. Find ways to destress, such as exercising or simply spending time relaxing. 2. Make sure you get seven to nine hours of sleep each night, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Children need even more. Not getting enough sleep is associated with a number of chronic conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and depression. Eat Healthfully 3. Prepare healthy meals and snacks. 4. Limit alcohol intake. 5. Focus on fresh and grown- close-to-home foods when possible. Get Regular Exams 6. Schedule physical exams for yourself and your Finding Better Ways To Support Military Families (NAPSA)----Americans know it's important to support military per- sonnel deployed overseas. But a new RAND Corporation study shows just how important it is to support military families as well. It found that children from these families can have signifi- cantly higher levels of emotional difficulties than children in the general population. About one- third of the military children sur- veyed reported symptoms of anxi- ety. Additionally, as the months of parental deployment increased, so did the child's challenges. In fact, the total number of months away mattered more than the number of deployments. "These findings back up what we have been hearing from par- ents about the impacts of parental deployments on children," says Joyce Raezer, the executive direc- tor for the National Military Fam- ily Association, the group that commissioned the research. "And as more troops are deployed, more youngsters are affected." Addi- tional study findings include: Older children experienced more difficulties during deployment. There is a strong relation- ship between the mental health of the caregiver and the well-being of the child. Girls experienced more diffi- culty readjusting after a service member's homecoming. A Brighter Future Raezer has called on groups-- including the Department of A study shows the importance of supporting families of military personnel. Defense--to use the study's find- ings to better help families. Her association is now gathering key nonprofit and military leaders as well as the heads of other groups to form an expert task force and lead a national conversation on how to do just that. Currently, the association ~s the only nonprofit organization that serves all military families, including those with a deployed, fallen or injured loved one. The group also serves families of all branches of the military, including the reserves and National Guard. "We owe it to these families to better understand and address the challenges they are facing now and may be facing later," Raezer explains. The association offers these Lips to help Americans everywhere ]end support to mili- tary families: ConnectAnd Invite--"Mili- tary families are like the rest of us you may not understand all the things military families face in a time &war, but you do under- Stand the way friendships and community enrich their lives," says Raezer. "Reach out. connect to a military family and invite them to coffee or dinner." Ask, "How Can I Help?"-- A simple of[~r of help can mean a lot to a single soldier or a "sud- denly single" morn or dad whose spouse is serving overseas. If you're a neighbor, a friend or con- nected in some way to a military family, offer to help. Lend An Ear--The study showed that deployments are often especially difficult on teenagers. "Military teens shoul- der a lot of additional responsibili- ties and are faced with some strong emotions at a pivotal time in their lives." says Raezer. "But remember, they are like other teens. They want to fit in, make friends and have fun." She sug- gests listening to what they have to say and being a role model. Provide Encouragement-- "Although service can be tough, military families are proud of the difference they make." says Raezer. "Encourage our military families wiLh gratitude and cama- raderie. Military families are serv- ing you, too." Get Involved--You can visit www.MilitaryFamily.org/stu dy to learn more about the study and to find ways to support and advocate for military families in the area. family. 7. Make sure you and your family are up to date on preventative checku ps and tests such as mammography, Pap smear, prostate cancer test and cholesterol or diabetes screenings. Check Your Medicines 8. Organize your medicine chest and check ex piration dates. 9. Plan ahead for prescription refills. 10. Determine if you and your family are eligible for free prescription assistance resources, such as the Together Rx Access(r) Card, which helps eligible uninsured Americans save on the medicines they need to stay healthy and to manage chronic conditions. Individuals who enroll receive a free-to-get and free-to-use card that can help them save on brand-name and generic medicines right at the pharmacy counter. For more information and a list of medicines and participating pharmacies, visit TogetherRxAccess.com or call (800) 966-0407. Ms. Roba Whiteley is executive director of Together Rx Access, a free prescription savings program that helps eligible Americans without prescription coverage gain access to immediate and meaningful savings on their medicines. The purpose of life is not to be happy but to matter, to be productive. ~o be useful, to have it make some difference that you lived at all. Leo Rosten February 10, 2010 Life During War Time by Kiki Skagen-Harris Kiki Skagen Harris, who has been writing a the "Back In The Day" column for this newspaper, came out of retirement from the U.S. State Department to serve in Iraq in 2006 as the Leader of a Provincial Reconstruction Team. This is one of a series of vignettes about daily life on a US military base Kiki wrote while she was in Baquba, Iraq. This is part two of an ongoing series, presented in diary form. "~'~ ~~,~ June 3, 2006 - The days and ,~ :~ :~ weeks settle into a routine here }:.~l~ti~:~ ~iil as they do anywhere else. The :i end and the beginning are our ~ ,, weekends. Friday is the real day of rest, the Muslim holiday, the day people take off. I mark both Friday and Saturday by braiding my hair instead of wearing it up, in proper business style, when I go to the office. We also work shorter days--perhaps ten hours instead of twelve or fourteen. This allows for a nap, the real point of a weekend. Last_ night we also celebrated the weekend with a barbecue at my compound. My policemen had made a rea, covered grill and the chicken tasted wonderful. The rest of the food was brought over from our regular dining facility and wasn't much of a change, but sitting outside in the evening, swapping stories of home, drinking fake beer (remember that a Forward Operating Base is dry) and sweet tea and generally relaxing was a great pleasure. It turned out, unexpectedly, to be practical as well. Our generator -had gone out and was being fixed. With daytime temperatures in the teens, the hundred and teens that is, our housing units are uninhabitable without A.C. Sunday it's back to work. This is still a bit of disjuncture, putting working day and Sunday together, but I do usually get to church =n the evening. This may be the time when I miss heine the most; the Vandemere United Methodist Church doesn't sing along with gospel rock music videos and I hope it never will. Because Sunday is still not quite a regular working day, our workweek somehow seems like four days instead of five. Try it sometime. It works here. But tonight, Saturday night, is different. In a couple of hours Lt.Col. Chris Johnson, my deputy team leader, and Major Marcus Snow, the Civil Affairs captain, and I are scheduled to catch a helicopter to Baghdad. It's only a 40 minute ride but seems light years away. There is a conference of PRT leaders and senior staff that will last until Tuesday in the palace and palm groves of Saddam Hussain, then I leave Wednesday for R and R. Traveling isn't easy--I've booked a bed in a tent at Baghdad International Airport because if rm lucky, I'll helo out Tuesday night. If I'm not lucky, the rhinos will depart at some point, heaven knows when, to drive in convoy. Then sometime on Wednesday, probably late because the plane comes from Kuwait, touches Baghdad, goes to Amman, then comes back to Baghdad and returns to Kuwait, I'll catch that C-130. And at about 2 in the morning on Thursday I'll leave Kuwait on Turkish air for Istanbul and my husband and friends and fresh veggies and wine and a bit of normalcy. If all goes well. June 26 - It's another week in Baquba. The US Agency for nternational Development representative, is back from leave. This is useful because Ali, who works for RTI which has a USAID contract has just arrived. All, a planner, will be working with us on the infrastructure working group. And Jim, our State Department officer, has gone on leave to see his folks in the US. We have generous leave policies-we need them. The Economic working group just came back from Khanaquin in the Kurdish controlled north. The cooler climate and lower level of violence make Khanaquin an attractive town. They looked at the Business Center (badly located and stagnating) a tomato paste plant proposal (not enough tomatoes to make it worthwhile) and a beekeepers' cooperative (a sweet topic if you can avoid being stung). Of most interest to me was the report of rugs being made by Kurdish refugees from Iran-I may have to inspect these myself. Three high level Iraqi officers were killed last night along with a fairly large number of others. There were the usual number of IEDs found along the roads. Our Governor is recuperating at home from a car accident. Speed kills-driving 140 kilometers an hour isn't recommended, especially if you are transporting arms and ammunition. A tire blew, the car rolled,caught fire, and was demolished in a hail of exploding ammo. The Governor's brother pulled him out of the car but wasn't able to rescue the two bodyguards. We (the 101st Airborne) evacuated the Governor to the hospital in Balad for treatment. The ten year old nephew of our Assistant Governor was kidnapped four days ago. The Assistant Governor has no children and this boy is like his son. We are working to try to get him back but do not know how successful we'll be. July 7- Baquba-Hairdos and HMMVs don't mix well. The helmet, the heat, and occasional bursts of air from an open machine gun turret make a military cut look increasingly enticing. I have taken to wearing head covering when I meet Iraqis outside the FOB, somewhat n respect to local sensitivities but mostly to hide my hapless hair. We may underestimate Muslim women. So when we finally stopped in front of the Governor's gates way out the Hamrin road and across empty fields on a raised gravel track I crawled out of the vehicle and pulled out a green "chunni" shot with blue and fringed at the ends. Off with the helmet, vest over the head, a wipe to a very fevered brow, a shake and a twist and, voila, at least a distant hope of presenting an image of your ordinary, everyday, well dressed PRT (Provincial Reconstruction Team) leader. We had come to see the Governor, injured last week in an automobile mishap, about the kidnapping of his Assistant Governor's ten year old boy. The case was a bit complicated. One is a Shia, the other a Sunni and they are not...close. The miscreants came from the Governor's tribe. The Assistant Governor had reported the case to us and we nabbed two of the perpetrators who were (and still are) in custody. We were received with ceremony in the front house, built exclusively to host guests. There were, of course, no (other) women in sight. we sat in some of the fancy chairs lining the long front room and preferred our condolences on the auto accident. We discussed this. We discussed that. We exited to eat on the porch, standing around a long table laden with great platters of rice and meat-excellent food. We returned to the salon, brought up the subject, "My mother's heart is sad that somewhere in this Province is a lonely, frightened child...." We agreed that kidnapping was reprehensible. We exchanged more pleasantries. We left in a cloud of dust. The next evening the child was returned safely to his parents. There are some good days. And today may be another one. The Governor last night took a suggestion we made in the course of our discussions about the kidnapping and gathered all the faction leaders in Mukhdadiya. They have agreed that kidnapping is not to be tolerated, the mosques should not be used to store weapons, that innocent people should not be killed...a few points they can all subscribe to. Let us pray the agreement holds.
