The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reminds both new and experienced poultry own- ers it's important to keep your birds healthy by practicing back- yard biosecurity. While "biosecurity" may not be a common household word, for poultry and bird owners it can spell the difference between health and disease. Practicing biosecurity can help keep disease away from farms and backyard pens and keep birds healthy. By using biosecurity practices, poul- try owners can help reduce the chances of their birds being exposed to infectious poultry dis- eases such as avian influenza. According to Dr. Fidelis Heg- ngi, senior staff veterinarian with USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, backyard biosecurity means doing every- thing needed to protect birds from disease--similar to what people do every day to protect themselves from human infections--essen- tially good hygiene. "That's what protects us from germs--we wash our hands, avoid contact with people who have colds and flu, and we cover our mouths and noses when we sneeze," says Dr. Hegngi. "If you follow basic hygiene activities with your birds, you'll go a long way to keeping your birds safe from disease." By taking a few simple steps, you can protect your birds. Dr. Hegngi recommends bird owners wash their hands thoroughly with soap, water and disinfectant before and after handling birds. When you're through working with your birds, disinfect your shoes and equipment. Cages, food and water should be cleaned daily. Poultry owners should remove feed from bags; place it in clean, sealed containers; and throw the bags away. Finally, bird owners should not borrow or share bird supplies. If they must, items should be cleaned and disinfected before being brought home. Be sure to isolate new birds you bring in from your other birds for at ]east 30 days. You should restrict access to your birds, espe- cially from people who own birds that are housed outside. Keep your birds away from other birds whenever possible. Look your flock over regularly so you can watch for signs of ill- ness or unexpected deaths among your birds. Report sick birds or die-offs to the local cooperative extension office, a veterinarian, State Veterinarian, State animal diagnostic laboratory or USDA Veterinary Services toll free at (866) 536-7593. For additional recommendations, poultry owners are encouraged to visit the USDA's Web site at http' Tips To Enhance Teen Interest In Science And Math (NAPSA)--Many experts assert that the strength of the U.S. econ- omy lies in fostering a culture of innovation and educating Amer- ica's youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The good news, according to a recent survey of teens by the Lemelson-MIT Program, is that 12-17-year-olds are enthusiastic about these subjects, with 77 percent interested in pursuing a STEM career. However, ensuring that teens hang on to that enthusiasm as they transition into college or the workforce may require encouragement along the way. Consider the following tips to foster teens' interest in the sciences: 1. Get outside the classroom For a transformative learning experience, provide teens the opportunity to build things and conduct experiments outside the classroom. Supplementing class- room learning with real-world experiences provides a valuable view into the role of science and math in everyday life. Two- thirds of students said they would enjoy learning about sci- ence more if they could take field trips to places where they can learn. Research and plan visits to local companies, museums or planetariums to help students foster a deeper understanding of the sciences. 2, Take a hands-on approach Two-thirds of teens prefer hands-on individual and group projects when it comes to class- room-based education methods. In the classroom and at home, keep things fun and interactive. Inte- grating animations, simulations, building-design skills and other lab tools into assignments are Hands-on experience is a great way to get students to appreciate science, technology, engineering and mathematics. ways to tap into teens' interest in hands-on learning. 3. Find strong mentors Teachers and parents alike should keep in mind that role models have a tremendous impact on increasing teens' interest in sci- ence, math and technology. Strong mentors can also help teens better understand the impact that STEM professionals have on soci- ety. Remember that even access to family members or family-friends who work in these fields can be a driving factor for teens' interest. There are a variety of channels beyond school and home that can connect teens' interest in STEM with access to hands-on, outside- the-classroom opportunities. For example, educational programs like the Lemelson-MIT Inven- Team initiative let teams of high school students, teachers and mentors apply for a grant of up to $10,000 to invent technological solutions to real-world problems of their own choosing.

Take Time For Yourself: Tips For Caregivers (NAPSA)-A growing number of Americans are being called on to be a caregiver. A 2009 National Alliance for Caregiving study says 67.1 million people-31 percent of all households-are caregivers, providing on average 20 hours of care per week. While many family caregivers don't receive financial compensation for their efforts, that doesn't mean their services are without cost. Being a caregiver can affect income, advancement and retirement benefits. Plus, employees caring for an older relative often have more health problems themselves. ARAG, a global leader of legal insurance, offers the following tips for caregivers: Take care of yourself. Get enough rest, eat properly and exercise. Don't try to do it all. Share caregiving duties with family members or friends who are willing to help. Take some time for yourself-read a book, go out to dinner, spend an evening with friends, engage in a hobby or activity that helps renew your spirit. Join a support group of people with similar interests or concerns about the caregiving experience. Many helpful resources are available online or through agencies and organizations. Be sensitive to signs of stress or fatigue, such as changes in personal habits or use of alcohol or prescription/nonprescription medications. Listen to family and friends who have your best interest at heart if they express concern. Check with a medical or mental health professional. Protect yourself and your loved ones. Discuss and plan for family, health, home or other financial or legal concerns. An ARAG- Russell Research study, "Legal Needs of Today's Multi-Generational Workforce," reported that caring for an aging family member is one of the 10 legal-related events most often experienced by Americans. continued on page 14 Lorna Jack January 14, 1923 - March 27, 2010 , Lorna Jack, classically-trained pianist and composer of harmonically; sophisticated children's music, chamber music and art song, died on, March 27, 2010, at the age of 87, in Laguna Niguel, California. ++ Born of Russian immigrant parents in Philadelphia on January 14, 1923, Jack began playing the piano at the age of 5 and received' her early musical training at Philadelphia's Settlement Music School.' Demonstrating talent in composition, Jack was taken under the wing' of noted composer Stefan Wolpe and his wife, pianist Irma Wolpe, with whom Jack studied composition and piano for four years in New' York City. At the age of sixteen her Duo for Oboe and Bassoon' was performed by Arthur Lannuti, bassoonist of the Philadelphia: Orchestra and the eminent oboist Joseph Marx. Jack met her husband to be, Theodore Jack, at the Tanglewood Musk, Festival in the summer of 1941. He was principal oboe in the festival orchestra under Serge Koussevitzky and she was playing; cocktail piano at the Curtis Hotel in Lennox, Massachusetts, as a: summer job. They met on a blind double date. Though awarded aJ scholarship to the Julliard School, Jack chose to attend the Eastman] School of Music, where Theodore was studying oboe. The two were married in 1943 and remained happily married for 47 years until; Theodore's death in 1991. Like many women of the time, Jack postponed her professionali aspirations to raise a family of three children and a husband in the suburbs. Thirty some years later, she finished her Bachelor of Music; degree at Temple University and began composing again in earnest' when her daughter, Yale playwright and lyricist, Susan Jack Cooper,! needed music for a comic torch song, He's Just My Guy...necologist. Jack enjoyed a lasting, productive and joyous collaboration writing+ special material with her daughter, whose comedy revue "The Chamansky Sisters" performed at Town Hall, New York and at colleges i all across the country. After a brief but prolific foray into country western music, Jack and Cooper found their niche writing children'st music. Together with Jack's son David, a singer and composer in" his own right, they formed Ta-Dum Productions, a children's music production company named for Jack's first children's song, Ta-Dum!; Through internet distribution, Ta Dum quickly established itself as a; leader in the childrens' music genre, producing six albums, three which were awarded Parents' Choice Awards. i Jack was comfortable performing Rachmaninoff and Brahms on one day and playing musical theater on another. She soloed with' the Eastman Rochester Orchestra, the Delaware Valley Philharmonic; and the Trenton Symphony. She also served as Pianist and Musical: Director at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA and the McCarter Theater in Princeton, NJ. In 1976, Jack's husband retired from teaching music in public school and the couple moved from Levittown, PA to San Diego County. There, Jack taught piano at San Diego State and for a number of years was Musical Director for. the Pine Hills Lodge in Julian, CA. After her husband passed away, Jack, now in her 70s, returned to her first love, the performance of serious classical music. Jack and her duo-piano partner, Arleene Ant]n, earned broad recognition for performances of all the major works for two pianos, winning three First Place prizes for duo-piano in California State competitions. An explosive and dynamic performer, Jack's final glissando in one piece broke a black key off the piano and sent it flying into the audience. In 2004, Jack composed "Life, Love and Dreams," a group of. three songs set to poems taken from "View with a Grain of Sand" byi Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska, winner of the 1996 Nobel Prize for Literature. The first song, Writing a Resume, was premiered' at Pepperdine University's Songfest 2004 in Malibu and the entire song cycle was premiered in 2005 on the UCI Chamber Music Series at Win]fred Smith Hall at the UCI Claire Trevor School of the Arts. Characterized by rhythmic intensity and soaring melodies, there is a grittiness and cynicism reflected in both the music and the words of these compositions, which Jack described as an organic cross between Lieder and cabaret songs. Jack's other works included compositions for solo piano, women's chorus and woodwind combinations. At the age of 84, Jack recorded Serge] Rachmaninoff's arrangement for piano of the virtuosic violin piece, Liebesleid. Her sensitive and moving performance has been viewed over 55,000 times on YouTube at ( and has inspired comments such as the following: "EVERY TIME I watch/ listen to this beautiful woman play this incredible piece of music, it brings tears to my eyes. BRAVA!!" Jack is survived by her son Louis B. Jack, of Laguna Niguel, CA, his wife, Nina Scolnik and their son, Theodore, as well as her son David S, Jack, of Philadelphia, his wife Vicky, and their children, Benjamin, Adam and Noa, as well as her brother, Morton Altman, of Apex, NorthI Carolina and his family. .0 J i +i
