Expert Witnesses And Causality

By William Henry, PhD

And Joellen Gill

What is Causality and how do Expert Witnesses deal with it?

The term refers to the reason something happened – the cause for it.

Determining cause is like peeling an onion. For example, in a case were someone trips and falls and is injured there can be many contributors to the equation and different causes for different effects.

For instance, who is the person injured and what are his or her characteristics? Old or young? Light or heavy? Good or not-so-good eye sight? Subject to seizures? Subject to losing balance? These are some of the types of things that can contribute to a fall and injury.

There is also the question for the cause of the injuries themselves. An extreme example of this is the forensic determination of the cause of death of a gunshot victim. The person was shot. Is that the cause of death? Maybe it is and maybe it is not. The pathologist must determine that. The evidence for the gunshot wound is not the same as that for the cause of death. Read More

The Paper Trail – Wallpaper and Your Interior Design

By Marcia Norris

It’s the luxury home you’ve been waiting for and a clean slate to apply the style that best suits you. Should you hire a professional interior designer to avoid making costly mistakes with the wrong materials and finishes? If you want to stylize, personalize and customize your home, the answer is yes.

But more importantly, I’ve found that no matter which style you want to work with, it’s the quality of the materials that count. We all love luxury, and we notice it in a cut crystal chandelier, a worn leather chair, a beautifully carved wood mantel, or a sumptuous silk drapery. All these elements are a testament to the endurance of style and beauty. If you are looking for lasting quality in terms of materials and finishes, an experienced designer can help you achieve that goal.

Among all the design components, wallpaper is one that can entirely transform the mood and feel of a room. It can be bold and dramatic, or simply a soft backdrop to the furnishings, art and accessories. The popularity of wallpaper has waxed and waned over the years, but in recent times has made a comeback. But don’t think it has to look like your grandmother’s living room. Technology has positively influenced wallpaper manufacturing techniques. Before we talk about that, let’s take a look back in time. Read More

It may be totally obvious but “Physical” by Olivia Newton John is the most popular physical therapy song. Who can forget the video of Olivia jumping around in her spandex and leg warmers singing, “Let’s get physical”? Physical therapy often involves exercise to help improve mobility and strength, and this song can really get you moving.

It’s time to get FYZICAL! Read More

Barefoot Elegance

By Ed Bertha

Acqua Vita is as expansive as it is stunning. The estate is entered through a beautiful gated wall designed to complement and enhance the overall feel of the spaces beyond, passing through this structure the home becomes the focus and the surrounding grounds beautifully accent it. As you drive the long paver drive to the home the grounds are highly manicured, a seamless mix of giant old oaks, cedar trees, ferns, lush mature vegetation as well as stately royal palms carefully chosen to compliment a yard that at once seems both natural as well as highly manicured.

The home itself is a nod to the beautiful Palm Beach beachfront estate homes that seem to carry an uncanny sense of barefoot elegance. Read More

REAL La Dolce Vita – With Kim & Sandra

REAL La Dolce Vita

Live The Sweet Life

By Kim Burns & Sandra Halliday

Photo by Denis Lauzon

La Dolce Vita with Kimberly Burns and Sandra Halliday. Kim and Sandra will take readers on a journey through their reviews of restaurants and businesses along with other venues and products in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. In their first venture, the reader will experience unique reviewing of restaurants through conveyance of taste, texture, aroma, and visual presentation of a restaurant’s dishes. Entertaining insight on the ambience and the general impression of the restaurant, as well as on the staff’s knowledge and attention to the diner’s needs, will engage the reader in a culinary journey.

Promoting the Sarasota Region as one of the top South West Florida destinations for the well-traveled and discerning gourmand, as well as, promoting local businesses is their goal. Reviews will discuss whether the restaurant was successful in creating the dining ambiance as marketed and if the staff had created a pleasant experience for the diner. The staff’s knowledge will be tested in pairing wine with the menu and the reviewers will also seek to discover how the restaurant stands out from its competition. The discerning gourmand diner also wants to know the culinary tradition of the chef, his or her specialty dishes, training, and if s/he had worked internationally and if the chefs support local farmers by purchasing locally farmed organic produce.

REAL Comedy – Interview With Steve Mittleman

Steve Mittleman

Stand Up Comedy At Its Best

Interview by Ed Bertha

When LA’s Comedy Store hosted auditions for Steve Martin’s film ‘Roxanne’, dozens of great comics, Steve Mittleman included, faced a professional’s worst enemy, lack of time to prepare. The Store also had a limited number of spots for auditions. Steve stopped by anyway, someone cancelled, and he got the shot. After the auditions, the film’s producers asked for only one comedian they’d seen that evening.

Before he knew it, Mittleman found himself hauling a fire hose around Canada playing the quirky fireman in Steve Martin’s hit film.

Let’s spend a few minutes with Steve Mittleman. Read More

REAL Profiles – Lynne Koy – Coldwell Banker Previews International

Attitude = Altitude

By Nicole Carbon

“If I had a crystal ball, I wouldn’t be a Realtor,” Lynne Koy said to a client just prior to our meeting. Lynne may not have a crystal ball, but what she does have is a strong work ethic, perseverance, and the ability to solve problems. She shared her story of how she built a prosperous business from the ground up, her philosophy, and the three sides to the triangle of her success.

Lynne started in the real estate business in Chicago as a single mother with two children and was discouraged by her instructor to enter the industry as a woman in her position. It didn’t stop her, she went on to build a thriving business. “Courage is taking those first steps to your happiness or your dream, even if you can’t see the path ahead,” she shares. Years later, she made the move to Long-boat Key to take care of her aging parents. Once again, she started from scratch, she didn’t know a thing about the area and had to rebuild her business, but quickly caught on to its appealing low-key vibe, and its thriving arts and cultural scene surrounded by some of the nation’s most beautiful beaches.

Food is Medicine – Benefits of Ghee

By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT

“Let medicine be thy food and let food be thy medicine”

A term Hippocrates used to relay his belief that eating nutritious food is the basis for good health. For those of us with food allergies or intolerance, even the diets labeled as healthy or anti-inflammatory can still cause problems. A food allergy triggers the immune system to react to the proteins in a food and causes a histamine reaction. It is usually more severe and immediate reaction with a small amount of the food whereas food intolerance may require a higher quantity of the food to cause problems. The symptoms are typically less severe and not life threatening. Because the two share similar symptoms, it can be difficult to distinguish between them. Some common symptoms are nausea, stomach aches, diarrhea, or runny nose. Food intolerance can also resemble age related digestive changes such as gluten and lactose intolerance due to under production of enzymes, bloating due to decreased elasticity, and constipation due to slowing of contractions in the large intestine. Whether it is allergy, intolerance or aging, decreasing the amount of food that triggers these symptoms is helpful to maintain good health. Read More
