Beaver Creek – An Introspective Recipe For Euphoria

As presented in www.FirstLightSports.com

Preface:
As a freelance writer I’m often drawn into an awkward and cyclical quandary. I know the general topic I want to write about, the place, the time, the events, the activities, et al. But the perspective; that’s the tough part to choose. I often take the easy way out, writing a rambling expose or travelogue detailing and colorizing the minutiae of my activities on a particular trip or sojourn. While that fills copy space and generally gives editors a safe piece with which to fatten their publications, it can become mundane if is the sole format presented to the readers. For this piece I am taking an introspective view of my experiences and externalizing them in an attempt to present a different flavor for the readers. I hope that you enjoy it.

George
For years I’ve been a skier. I know lots of skiers and plenty of non-skiers too. As I began my plans for a trip to Beaver Creek, CO for spring skiing 2006 several of my friends began asking me about it. Where was I going? Why did I choose that location, or time? Why skiing, and not taking a swimsuit/beach trip? Still others; cloistered far from any adventure or athletic venture seemed entirely mystified by my intentions. I began to think about the components of my ski trips which make them so desirable and attractive to me. The word I selected as representative was euphoria. Euphoria. It sounds straightforward, and seemed to me that its parts and mechanisms would be so clear to even the simplest rube. But until now even I had no real idea what elements and ingredients made up my euphoria. So with pen and paper in hand I struck out for Beaver Creek in the fabulous Colorado Rockies to perform a dissection of my own psyche.
What follows is an ingredient-based recipe, which is without order, preparation instructions or relative quantities.

FEAR
Without a doubt fear plays a role in my personal happiness when taking to the slopes. Perhaps it is the approach-avoidance reflex that tells me that hanging high in the air from a mile-long, 2-inch cable along with hundreds of others just doesn’t seem like it can work. Or maybe it’s the mental calisthenics that jump through my brain when I look down a black-diamond mogul run, knowing full well that the light is beginning to flatten, my wheels have already started to fall off, and I have half an altitude buzz. I’m no psychologist but, damn, I know fear when I smell it. So the question is right in front of me, virtually under the tips of my skis (which are now cantilevered into thin air over the precipice of the run.) Do I go on? Do I look for an easy way down? The answer is, and I suppose will always be, a firm “it depends.” But that’s the elemental reality of fear. It’s not to always take the steep way down, or the easy either, but to have the moment of choice. To stand at a challenge with your heart in your throat weighing your emotions, physical conditioning, and skills. That’s the payoff for fear. Take whichever way down you choose and never look back, the answer is the singular act of moving either way.
Many of my non-skier friends don’t understand my infatuation with skiing. They say that they are afraid of breaking their leg (arm, neck, etc) and could never bring themselves to ski. Every now and then I actually manage to talk one of them into skiing. Fear can strike like a paralysis. First, at the bottom of a bunny run looking up at the slowest moving lift, then again at the top of that same run. Those who conquer their fear are those who are willing to see it and taste it first-hand. I’ve never yet taken a first-time skier, who, after two runs didn’t have a huge smile on their face.
I’m a simple man. Fear is the simplest reaction to the unknown and the unsure. It is one of the emotions that boost our body and mind to produce endorphins and focus our attention to a specific task. A daily supplement of fear strongly blended into my ski day helps to make me feel better and have more fun.
For my daily infusion of fear my photographer John and I calmly caught the “Birds of Prey” lift which services the steepest runs at Beaver Creek. Golden Eagle and Peregrine are both listed by BC as double-black-diamond. Did we have our grooming maps? Was I really looking to ski one of BC’s famous groomed corduroy runs anyway? Naah.. We don’t need no stinking grooming maps! We had warmed up for the day and were feeling pretty perky, and seriously… we had fresh wheels, sharp edges, and good snow. How tough could it be? At the top of Golden Eagle I attempted to take some measure of that exact evaluation. It looked pretty daunting, a quarter mile of serious vertical, and a sea of monster moguls chock-a-block from side to side. I’ll admit that my heart was pinging a bit in anticipation as I surveyed the run from the top. Two choices lay before me; one way straight down, another an exit to an adjacent blue run. And on that day at the top of the moguls, I looked down beyond the tips of my skis, and I chose…

ADRENALINE
I asked my wife Amy, a nurse, recently about adrenaline and how it worked. She replied by giving me a very medically appropriate (but meaningless to me) definition:
Adrenaline n : a catecholamine secreted by the adrenal medulla in response to stress; stimulates autonomic nerve action
Ok… I asked again, making sure this time to let her know that I wanted to know for myself what this stuff is and why it’s so important. It turns out that adrenaline is the turbo booster for our bodies. It’s generated when we need it to fight or to run and gives our bodies and minds power and focus. Fun stuff. It turns out that we can get this stuff flowing on demand if the circumstances are right.
Medical lingo and physiology aside, adrenaline is a rush, literally. Beaver Creek has plenty of adrenaline producing runs which allow even a schlub writer from the Midwest to live large and fast on the mountain. The turbo effect that’s generated provides the strength and concentration to really enjoy skiing. While fear may play a part in kicking me into high gear, when I add some speed to my skiing I begin to approach a feeling of flight. I rarely, if ever, leave the ground while on skis! That’s not the point. The point is that skiing provides a mechanism to get a serious physiological buzz. So dear reader, I say to you: You gotta get some of this stuff!

Where’s the best place on Beaver Creek’s mountain to get your adrenaline cranked up? Well, again that’s a serious answer of “it depends.” For myself, I can’t sustain an entire day of knee pounding bumps, or uber-steep slopes. I choose for myself a mix starting with some early morning warm-up blues and greens. One intrepid para-sail pilot was getting jazzed by flying over BC on one of my ski days there. After limbering up and finding my balance for the day I like to advance to some darker blue and black runs. By the end of day I look for something that’s free of ice and hard-pack, with the length and width to do some cruising. Spring skiing can be a real mix of dramatically changing conditions. I found myself in some sunny slush near the base, some seriously gnarly chunk and ice crud in remote places, and deep in fresh powder for a couple days too. Again, I often choose to ski the mountain, not the grooming report.
Word to the wise about high altitude skiing. Your physical mechanisms are doing a ton of work, especially with your adrenaline turbo kicking in during the day. Keep yourself hydrated and fed. Drink as much water as you can, whenever you can, and eat high carb and high protein foods to fuel your machine. Save the alcohol for après ski time, and save yourself a few doses of adrenaline for the evening. Adrenaline, it’s not just for skiing.

COMFORT
Try as I might, I just can’t strap on the Ipod and crank Metallica or Slayer and ski all day. With much of my youth in the rear-view mirror I like to take to the slopes with the same balance that I look for elsewhere in my life. Sure it’s fun to do some mogul mashing and top-to-bottom speed runs. But maintaining an equilibrium of activates has become very important to me. The Roman philosopher Terence said “Moderation in all things.” Well, since I’m Greek and have never held much use for the Romans I need to make a small change to Terence’s message. I’d prefer to state simply “All things”, to Hell with moderation. Going to Beaver Creek and looking for moderation is like going to Miami Beach and looking for a little water. BC has tons of variety, and it has an almost embarrassing overabundance of everything that a skier would want.

I’ve been told that BC is a good shopping venue too, what the military would call a target-rich environment. But since this is my introspective (and I am a fully accredited non-shopper) I can’t provide any accurate detail. Feel free to shop and browse through the many stores and mercantile outlets in the BC village. Buy, don’t buy, enjoy. Just don’t expect me to keep you company.
Amenities are important but ease of use is high on my list of positive features that I look for. The invisibility of an apparently good administrative organization while personally having freedom on the slopes to ride, cut, or mash is amazingly easy at BC. In the village restaurants, bars, equipment retailers, etc (the list goes on) are all handy for all my eating, drinking, equipment, and other requirements. And on the mountain? Hey, sometimes you need to nosh a bite or stop for a bio-break; it’s nice that they put plenty of places there too.

After a day of skiing there are a couple great places right at the bottom of the Centennial lift to have a drink and a snack. If you’re lucky the sun will be shining and you can sit outside and watch the last of the skiers descend the mountain as you enjoy your drink and reminisce about the day’s activities. My photographer, John, likes to enjoy his “apple juice” which is really CC & 7, for myself my traditional après ski drink is hot-chocolate with peppermint schnapps. I assure you, that you will be happy when a lovely waitress brings you either of those.

BEAUTY/RAPTURE
I sometimes wax poetic when I get out west skiing. The amazing mountains and the deep sapphire skies paint a dramatic background for my downhill activities. There is a special place in my brain that gets switched into high definition mode when I’m in the Rockies. If you’ve never been there, it’s hard to explain. I could try to tell you about the snow and the mountains and the vistas and all the rest. But certainly I would fail to convey the effect. Even photographs, though they may be accurate and colorful, fall short. My advice: get yourself out to see the mountains, get into them, and ski them. Then before you knock off for the evening, exhausted from the day’s exertions, get your coat on and step outside into the Dark Colorado night. If you can get yourself to Vail mountain, take the gondola up to the Eagles Nest in the dark to the top, it’s a free ride and very cool. Take a deep breath and a long look up through the crystalline sky to the heavens and the stars. It’s can be an amazingly calming and poignant moment.
I thought to follow in the great historical avenues of other Greeks like Homer, Aesop, and Euripides by writing an epic poem celebrating the amazing cornucopia of nature. This was a short-lived concept which died on the vine as I immediately realized that the time and detail required would be way too immense. So this Greek freelancer has chosen an unanticipated but more simplistic format, the Haiku; one for daytime and one for nighttime. Hopefully both Homer and Takahama will forgive me.
Sapphire blue the sky
White snow has given us wings
Golden sun smiles down
Stars in the darkness
The Mountain slumbers in peace
Silence casts a calm

PEOPLE
I meet the most interesting people in the mountains when I go skiing. There are people from all walks of life from all parts of the globe. I’m a fairly gregarious guy and I enjoy talking with new people I meet, pretty much everywhere I go. It’s part of who I am, and it sometimes drives my wife and friends crazy. But I talk to virtually everyone who rides the lifts and gondolas with me, and I never tire of hearing their stories. John and I rode the lift with a 72 year old Argentinean woman who was skiing with her 5 granddaughters. She has been skiing virtually her whole life and didn’t show any signs of stopping. I met doctors, lawyers, bankers, ski bums, families with kids, cooks, and computer programmers of many ethnic and language backgrounds. Without exception they were friendly, warm, and most of all happy. Of course they were happy, I know that I was certainly very happy. We were all skiing in Colorado what’s not to be happy about?

FUN
Fun is the measure of quantity and the spice flavoring all the other ingredients listed here. Use it liberally, aggressively, loudly, and with verve.
Nothing but fun… On a side trip to Vail at night I took a stint at night bike-skiing. If you’re looking for a bit of nighttime fun that’s ski related I can highly recommend this somewhat exotic activity.
WRAP UP

So, that’s my recipe for a skier’s euphoria, I hope you enjoy it. I know that each of you will add your own ingredients and mix them in your own unique proportions. Take my advice and get yourself out skiing, or if you’re already a skier; keep it up and don’t stop.

What is Lasik Surgery?

Lasik surgery is a procedure that permanently altered the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, with a Excimer laser. Houston has been at the forefront of implementing new technologies in the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Thus, the most advanced lasik Houston Laser system today as Wavelight Allegretto Excimer Laser System, which was approved by the FDA.

The city is home to the only eye care center that is exclusively with the LASIK treatments. Since its know-how is concentrated mainly on laser vision correction, this area has not only the latest diagnostic and surgical devices, but the doctors to perform Lasik surgery are experts in their field.

Lasik Houston provides a cost effective alternative to LASIK surgery, because they have their own equipment. In addition, because an FDA Investigational Site, they were initially approved for Wavelight Allegretto Excimer Laser System they now use successfully today.

To understand fully why the WaveLight Allegretto Excimer Laser System is so successful, it is important to explain like a typical laser procedure was performed before the Wavelight. The cornea is the part of the eye that is light, which creates an image to focus on the retina. Refraction is the process by which bent the light and focus is. So if an object is blurred, this is known as refractive errors. People who wear glasses or contact lenses bear, are suffering from some form of can ametropia and thus laser surgery as indicated refractive surgery must be known.

The surgery itself shapes the cornea to allow for more acute vision. One of the first laser procedure was performed PRK ever known. It is designed to reshape the cornea with a laser. In this method, the top layer of the cornea is scraped off, while in LASIK, a flap is cut and the cornea is reshaped to produce optimum sharpness.

The progress in technology in general and for the doctors, especially in LASIK not only saves the actual operation time to a minimum, but offers International EyeCare to the patient the opportunity to view new WaveLight Allegretto Excimer Laser System by experienced surgeons, whose only job experience is a vision to improve effective than ever before.

The process has hardly any discomfort during and after the operation. It is not carried out under general anesthesia. The ophthalmologist is numbing drops into the Eye brought before the treatment. The procedure takes about 30 minutes for the entire procedure.

Any pain following surgery will be paid out of the experience with an over-the-counter painkillers. Most of the time both eyes on the same day. After surgery, patients must not drive, so the transport of another person required.

After treatment, it is recommended that the patient is asleep or resting. The patient must be sure to not rub or hurt the eye, a corneal flap was carefully put back into its original position. Contact your eye doctor if you develop any excessive pain or complications, which were discussed with you about your surgery.

Three Tips on Finding the Right Minneapolis Plastic Surgeon

When you talk about Minneapolis, it’s good form to recognize its twin city St. Paul, on the other side of the Missouri River.  St. Paul is the capitol of Minnesota after all; and even though St. Paul has always been in the shadow of its neighbor across the river, the area has come to be known as the Twin Cities.  With 3.2 million residents in the area, Minneapolis/St. Paul is the sixteenth largest metropolitan area in the country.

 

In a metro area of that size you are going to find quality medical services and certainly quality plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures if you know where to look.  While we don’t have a specific set of instructions for you, here are some suggestions on how to go about finding the plastic surgeon that will work for you.

 

1. The most famous name in medicine for Minnesota and perhaps for the country is the Mayo Clinic.  Mayo has one of the finest medical schools in the country, opened in 1972.  Located in Rochester, Mayo Clinic and its medical school are eighty miles from Minnesota, but many of its graduates gravitate to the Twin Cities area to open practices. 

 

The medical school has a two year graduate program in plastic surgery, described on their web site:  “Approved by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, this unique program offers one-on-one training in the outpatient setting, hospital and operating room.”  One of your options might be seeking out a Mayo trained cosmetic plastic surgeon.

 

2. The University of Minnesota’s medical school has a plastic surgery program that covers the gamut of both reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery.  The school is active in research and uses state of the art equipment to teach the fine points of breast augmentation, facial lifts and the other common procedures.  One of the University’s medical schools is in Minneapolis and many of its graduates practice there.  Until 1972, Mayo’s staff doctors taught at the school.  The state’s medical school also graduates its own plastic surgeons.

 

3. Minneapolis itself has a population of about 370,000, which makes it less than 15% of the metropolitan area.  There are a number of affluent suburbs where you’ll find well established plastic surgery outpatient clinics.  Today, many people find that liposuction or such procedures as a tuck or facial lift work well as outpatient procedures.  Many of the clinics have been in operation for twenty years or more.   You won’t find a lot of clinics offering the array of day spa treatments, which depending on your perspective may (or may not) be a refreshing fact.

 

Find information about all types of plastic surgeon procedures including breast implants, breast augmentation face lifts, and liposuction. A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Resource.com is the place to locate a Plastic Surgeon in Minneapolis.

Moving Tips by Two Guys & a Truck Ny Nj Movers

Moving Tips

Planning ahead for your move will make it less stressful and a more positive experience. Although this is not always possible, here are a few tips and techniques to make your move easier. You can also find home values based

on sold house prices in your neighborhood by using the Search for Home Values form.

1. If you hire a moving company they will pack everything for you, however you should pack your important paperwork and any sentimental items. If you have children allow them to help by packing their toys.

2. Make sure that you are there when the movers are packing your stuff.

3. Make sure that all boxes are clearly labeled on both the top of the box and on at least one other side of each box. Be sure the boxes are clearly labeled with which room they should go into. If you are using movers label the bedrooms at the new house the same way you labeled the boxes.

4. If you want to save money and still use the movers you could pack your stuff yourself.

5. If you have any friends or families that have borrowed any of your items this is the time to ask for them back. This would also be a good time for you to return any items that you have loaned from family and friends.

6. If you have lots of books please consider either packing them in lots of small boxes or spreading them out among your furniture, such as cabinets and drawers.

7. Do not store breakables or heavy items in drawers!

8. Do not overload drawers.

9. If you are using drawers to move things, please tie them shut so that they do not fly open while moving. Using tape is not a good idea because it may strip paint or varnish.

10. Use thick tape and make a across mirrors and picture glass so that if the glass is accidentally broken during the move there is less glass to clean up.

11. To remove sticky residue from tape and other adhesive products you can use mineral oil, baby oil, eucalyptus oil, or goop remover.

12. Make a list of any new items you may need for the new house.

13. Please keep aside any cleaning equipment so that you may use it right away at your new house. Please include in this list light bulbs!

14. Before you pack any of your appliances please clean them thoroughly and let them dry completely. Especially tip all the crumbs out of the toaster.

15. Be sure to clean out your refrigerator and freezer really well before moving them. To prevent the fridge from smelling use one of these ideas: wipe out the fridge with a damp cloth with vanilla essence, dry out the fridge with a hair dryer especially the corners, and/or put silica gel in the fresh department or fine blend coffee in a piece of muslin, these will soak up any extra moisture. When you have cleaned out the fridge and defrosted the freezer keep the doors slightly open to keep the air circulating just before you move them.

16. If you are moving with children show them around the new house just before your move in and answer any questions they may have.

17. See if any of the neighbors have any kids around the same age as your children.

18. Introduce yourselves to your new neighbors.

19. Look around your new neighborhood to find out where the local hospitals are located as well as restaurants and various forms of entertainment.

20. Ask your current attorney, doctor, and dentist for their recommendations on professionals in your new neighborhood.

21. Be sure to transfer any medical records and school records.

22. Be sure to remember to discontinue the following services at your old home: gas, electric, water, phone, newspaper, cable TV, DSL and other local nternet services if you have them, and cellular phone.

23. Be sure to notify the following of your change of address: post office, credit cards, insurance, magazines, and bank.

24. If you have any pets, it will probably be best to move them first and find a quiet place for them while all the moving is happening. For example if you have cats put them in a bathroom with their food, water, and litter box (on the opposite side of the room away from the food). Then leave a note on the door “Please do not enter!” If you have outside dogs put them in the backyard so that they can get used to their new environment and if you have lots of windows inside they can watch everything that is going on.

25. Smaller caged pets especially easily stressed animals should be moved last after all the excitement has settled down.

If you plan your move very carefully and use some of the above advise you may find the move relaxing and a little bit fun. If it gets too stressful take a break and find something to laugh about, you will probably feel better. Just remember you can take your time with unpacking and this is a perfect opportunity to completely reorganize your home.

The Evolving Faces of Diagnostic Medical Centers and Spas

A doctor visit is a scary event for many people. Hospitals and clinics are almost always white deleted to convey, cleanliness and efficiency. Moreover, the prospect to undergo diagnostic tests on machinery and needles. Indeed, most medical facilities inhospitable places.

This is probably the reason why diagnostic centers and clinics are re-inventing itself to more attractive for patients. On the other hand, the traditionally non-medical facilities such as wellness centers and spas are also trying to credibility in a time when consumers are more health to attract experienced and demand more scientific-based health services.

Many diagnostic centers have shaped their institutions' official Names include the term "wellness". Wellness is a word of many alternative medicine whereas spas related conjures images of well-being and relaxation. The Diagnostic & Wellness Center for Women of Pacific Medical Center (PacMed), the Diagnostic and Wellness Center at Harbor-UCLA and the Women's Diagnostic and Wellness Center of Coral Springs Medical Center in Florida are examples of this trend. Even the renowned Cleveland Clinic Florida has its Health and Wellness Center.

Many hospitals are redesigning their institutions to make them less sterile and more relaxed. PacMed's Diagnostic & Wellness Center for Women in Seattle describes his Setting as "spa-like", with indoor decor in warm, soft colors and furniture and equipment you would not normally in a normal clinic setting to be found. But despite the spa atmosphere has this unique Wellness Center, all state-of-the-art medical and diagnostic equipment and first-class medical personnel necessary to perform diagnostic tests. "Our goal is to make the experience better for the health care and to encourage people to take a proactive approach to wellness" to change, according to a spokeswoman PacMed Center. The Women's Diagnostic & Wellness Center in Coral Springs Medical Center in Coral Springs in Florida, calls his approach "home-like" to eliminate, is connected to the impersonal atmosphere, with many diagnostic centers.

Spas on the other hand, have used the term "medical spas" or medispas to stress ", has to be medical and health benefits for their services. In the same way, trying to keep pace with the alternative medicine technique. While traditional acupuncture used manual stimulation, acupuncture and use of new technology centers for the stimulation by electrical pulses and lasers to heat and moxibustion.

While many hospitals are generalists, meaning they provide diagnostic, screening and check ups for nearly almost all health conditions, many the modern "wellness" oriented clinics specialize in certain types of diseases. Below are some examples of these so-called boutique diagnostic Facilities and their services.

PacMed's Diagnostic & Wellness Center provides diagnostic services specifically for the health of women. These tests, usually part of annual medical check-ups, can any of the following:

to (4) biopsies suspicious structures by the above-mentioned imaging systems detected to confirm.

(5) DEXA bone scan checks for bone health. As women age, they are a higher risk for developing osteopenia and osteoporosis.

It also features a free standing sleep center, sleep lab and a complete state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained staff in the field of sleep medicine.

Wellness scans are the specialty of many centers, including the Medical City Dallas Hospital in North Texas. But what is a wellness scan? A spa-Scan is a non-invasive CT-Test from the clavicle to the pelvis and contains the heart, lungs and abdomen. The designated areas are sampled in the stomach, the kidneys, liver, Gall bladder, aorta, adrenal glands, lymph nodes, spleen, and certain other pelvic organs.

Should You Rent or Purchase Medical Equipment Supplies?

Medical equipment is expensive whether you are an individual who needs a wheelchair or you are a hospital administrator who needs to purchase several new electrocardiogram (EKG) machines. These items are expensive for a reason. They need to be durable and provide accurate care at all times. However, whether you decide to rent or purchase medical equipment supplies depends completely on how long you will need the piece of equipment and what will be the most economical choice for you at that particular time.

Leasing medical equipment is a business in which many medical equipment retailers also specialize. Most medical supplies stores specialize in leasing equipment to professional hospitals and clinics but there are several companies, such as Care Medical Equipment, that rent single pieces of equipment to individuals. Most people take advantage of these services when they go on vacation. It is incredibly convenient to be able to rent a power wheel chair or a respiratory machine and have it delivered to the hotel the day you arrive. No longer do people have to stay home when their family travels because they can have the care they need wherever they go!

Health clinics that are just opening and small medical practices are often the businesses that are the most interested in leasing pieces of medical equipment. There are new medical machines coming out every year, whether it’s hospital or home medical equipment. Researchers and technicians are hard at work designing more accurate machines that can help diagnose and treat different conditions. It is impossible for medical facilities to buy the latest model or machine every year because the costs are just too high. Leasing, however, is always an option. If there is a machine that is perfect for your practice, leasing will allow you to use the machine without having to pay the high purchase costs.

The best news about leasing is that you only need to pay the depreciation value of the machine during the time that you have it. Once your lease is up, you can always re-lease the machine or you can purchase it for a much lower price! Most people believe purchasing items is the best way to go, but leasing is a very viable option. As long as you do your research, you should be able to discover the best option for you.
