Dave DeSemple, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Premier Community BankSocial engineering refers to the methods attackers use to manipulate people into sharing sensitive information, or taking an action, such as downloading a file. When email is utilized, it is known as “Phishing.”

So how can you protect yourself? First and foremost, you should utilize a spam filter, keep all of your systems patched and your anti-virus software up to date, and home users should enable the auto update feature. However, even with updated systems, the best defense to phishing is YOU. You should always be suspicious of unsolicited emails. Only open email attachments if you are expecting them and know what it contains. Be cautious about container files, such as .zip, as they may contain malicious content. If you are vigilant, and watch for warning signs of a phishing email, you can minimize your risk of falling for one.

Phishing emails may include messages from companies you don’t have accounts with; contain spelling mistakes; messages from the wrong email address; generic greetings; and unexpected messages with a sense of urgency designed to prompt you into responding quickly without checking the facts. Common examples include an email appearing to be from the “fraud department” of a company that asks you to verify personal information because they suspect you may be a victim of identity theft, or an email from the CEO of your company requesting that you wire some money right away to pay a large expense. There are many others, so remember: Always think before you click.

Recently, I began a fascinating continued education program on the identification of deception — it’s sort of like being a human lie detector. As part of this training, we emphasize looking for “micro expressions,” many of which appear involuntarily on our faces when an individual has an emotional reaction.

When we experience an emotion, there is a direct, predictable, cross cultural autonomic (or automatic) response that occurs in less than a second and can be detected if watched for. We may try to avoid, hide or even deny our emotions, but our amygdala and autonomic response will not lie for us. The truth is evident in your expressions.

Often, in the work I do, individuals struggle with being able to honestly express or even identify how they are feeling. Their common response is “I feel fine.” In reality, they don’t feel “fine” at all. Part of the healing process is being honest about personal feelings, and then learning how to express these emotions without numbing them with mood-altering chemicals.

For me, an additional benefit is being more aware of the true emotions my clients are experiencing, and helping them be more honest with themselves.

So remember: Intellectually, we may try and hide from others, and even ourselves… But the amygdala will always tell the truth.

Katey Meza, French Prairie Gardens & Family FarmIt’s summertime in the Willamette Valley, and French Prairie Gardens in St. Paul is celebrating again this June with its popular, family-friendly “Berries, Brews & BBQs.”

Over the first three weekends in June, French Prairie Gardens will host a series of fun events: picking strawberries, tasting a variety of beers (there will be a dozen breweries sharing their best), and enjoying tasty barbecue dishes.

“This year it will be over three weekends instead of two,” said Katey Meza, co-owner of the family business. “We’ll have u-pick strawberries, live music, barbecues, and fun events for kids.”

Katey said one of the reasons for the activities is to expose children to a slice of life on the farm.

“A lot of kids don’t get to pick strawberries, so here’s a chance to teach them,” Katey said. “I grew up picking strawberries when I was 12, but nowadays there are no kids working in the fields. It’s an experience they’ll remember for a long time.”

The three weekends start with the June 4-5 weekend, continue on June 11-12, and winds up on Father’s Day Weekend, June 18-19. Festivities run from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on each Saturday, and from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. each Sunday.

There is no admission fee to the Berries, Brews & BBQs festival, and parking is free.

“It is ‘pay-to-play,’” Katey explained. “There is a price for the brews, barbecues, picking berries, and the farm fun activities, but no reservation are needed, so just come on out and we’ll be here!”

Mike McBride, Farmers InsuranceCombining insurance coverage in one policy generally leads to a better deal, and Farmers Insurance is very adept at tailoring packages to meet the needs of its customers.

For “Artisan Contractors” ~ primarily landscapers, painters, plumbers, electricians, carpet and linoleum installers and cleaners ~ Farmers has a policy that is especially attractive.

“Our contractors’ policy is pretty competitive,” said Mike McBride, owner of Mike McBride Farmers Insurance in Newberg. “A lot of other companies just do liability insurance, but we have a package that includes tools and equipment.”

For example, Mike noted that the policy even covers theft of a contractors’ supplies.

“Say an electrician buys wire and puts it in his garage or tool shed, which gets broken into and the wire is stolen,” Mike said. “The first $3,000 of protection comes automatically, but you can increase it.”

The protection doesn’t end there.

“A lot of contractors work out of a den or third bedroom in their house, but a typical homeowner’s insurance policy won’t cover anything to do with a business,” Mike explained. “If there is fire damage, our policy covers $2,500 automatically, and it can be bumped up.”

The convenience factor is huge.

“If a contractor has company rigs, a lot of insurance carriers have separate liability for commercial vehicles and a separate policy for tools and equipment,” Mike said. “We can package it all together ~ liability, equipment, and also a contractor’s bond ~ which is really nice, because it’s all with one agency.”

Dr. Navid Newport, Newberg Kids DentistAs pediatric dentists, our job isn’t only to check teeth and fill them if there are cavities. At their cleaning appointments, dentists also evaluate the oral cavity for proper tooth alignment.

There are many factors that come to play when teeth are growing. Teeth misalignment is a common problem among many children, and the causes can be varied. Generally, we tell parents that if their teeth are crowded, then their kids will most likely end up with crowded teeth too, because there is a strong genetic component. But that isn’t always the case!

Some children may have inherited the shape and size of their mother’s teeth and the size of their father’s jaw, thus resulting in perfectly lined up teeth. Others inherit the reverse, and end up extremely crowded. Some children have a fluke random mistake in the genetic formation of the teeth, and teeth may end up bigger, out of place, missing, or there may even be an extra tooth. Further, trauma can cause teeth to misalign.

All these very peculiar situations happen often, and it may not always be obvious to detect. At your child’s cleaning appointments, we’ll evaluate their bite and alignment and make recommendations to seek an orthodontist. Some children don’t need to be seen before the age of 10-12 years old for braces, while others require braces as early as 6 years old. We are trained to look for any abnormalities ~ and hopefully prevent them from happening.

I have often heard the saying, “the only time I am able to obtain a loan from a bank is when my business does not need it.”

This saying does have an element of truth, as banks are very risk-averse. However, if the borrower understands how a commercial lender approaches

evaluating the risk associated with the loan, your chance of success improves. When it comes to lending money, a banker needs to be right 99

percent of the time.

As a result, bankers are very conservative. Obtaining a loan from a bank is typically the least expensive option, but as a result a bank will take the

least amount of risk. There are numerous options for businesses to obtain financing ranging from friends and family; venture capital firms or partners; asset based lenders; leasing companies; and then a bank loan, which is the most cost-effective way of obtaining financing.

Commercial lenders approach a loan request utilizing the five “Cs” of credit:

Capacity: How is the loan going to be repaid?

Capital: Have you put your own money into the venture?

Collateral: What assets do you have to support the loan request?

Conditions: What will you do with the money?

Character: What is your reputation within the industry and have you historically paid your bills on time?

By presenting a commercial lender with a business plan that addresses the five “Cs,” you will dramatically improve your odds of obtaining a loan from a bank.

Urinary incontinence can be an embarrassing aspect of our health to discuss, therefore it is often dismissed or left untreated. However, as a physical therapist, it is my responsibility to advocate for patients and raise awareness that urinary incontinence is not a normal aspect of aging in women or men, nor is it a normal part of being a mother.

The International Incontinence Society defines urinary incontinence as a condition with involuntary loss of urine. According to the National Association for Continence, urinary incontinence impacts 25 million adult Americans. There are quite a few requirements of urinary continence including the ability of the bladder and pelvic floor musculature to expand and contract. In addition, urinary continence can be influenced by our behaviors such as diet, voiding habits, and hygiene.

The first step to treating urinary incontinence is becoming informed. Most cases can be treated, or at least managed, with conservative treatment including physical therapy and bladder retraining. In fact, physical therapy has been shown to be very effective in treating these symptoms. According to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, proper pelvic floor muscle training in conjunction with bladder retraining was shown to resolve symptoms of urinary incontinence (March 2008).

Physical therapy can be a successful and affordable first step in treating urinary incontinence. For further information regarding urinary incontinence and physical therapy treatment check out these resources:

Dr. Wendy Abraham, Naturopathic Physician
Sherwood Aesthetic MedicineQ: I am noticing a lot of changes in my face as I get older. I want to avoid surgery for as long as possible, so what are some alternatives?

A: Of course, lifestyle and dietary changes are the first line of defense: quitting smoking, limiting alcohol and caffeine, and protecting your skin from UV damage by always wearing sunscreen are several good starting points. In addition, staying active, well-hydrated, and increasing the amount of nutrient dense foods in your diet are also important.

That said, after 40 years of age, in spite of good health, other factors are working against us ~ in particular, the decline of collagen and elastin production. The effect of this reduction is part of what you are seeing in the mirror. As our bodies produce less collagen, the skin becomes thinner, exposing unwanted changes. These changes ~ along with gravity ~ cause the descent of facial tissues. In order to combat this descent, some kind of structure and lift is needed.

We offer a variety of individualized treatments to address facial descent ~ from PDO thread lifts to fractionally ablative radio frequency. Our no pressure consultations are always complimentary, and provide a great opportunity to have your questions answered.

Please join us for a Q&A session with Dr. A ~ “Alternatives to Face Lifts,” on May 10 at 5:30 p.m. RVSP by calling our office, 503-610-1194.

FIrst Step Treatment CenterSubstance abuse and addiction is a daunting problem on many levels, but Newberg’s First Step Adolescent & Adult Treatment Center is available to provide help and hope.

First Step is a private, state-licensed facility that specializes in providing chemical dependency outpatient treatment services, and the business also offers group, individual, and family therapy for those with substance abuse/addiction problems.

“We offer treatment for substance use disorders to adult and adolescent individuals and their families,” said Rodney Robbins, owner of First Step. “Recommended treatment is always based on medical necessity and structured to meet the individual needs of the client and their family. There is no ‘one size fits all’ treatment. Each person who comes in to First Step is treated with dignity, respect, and careful attention to their specific situation.”

The ultimate goal of outpatient care at First Step is to achieve abstinence and long-term recovery.

“Like with any medical condition, the sooner a person receives the treatment, the better the prognosis,” said Rodney.

Although its primary focus is on care and treatment for addictions, First Step also helps educate the community about addiction and related topics.

“The more up to date information and research we share, the greater impact we can have to the community,” explained Rodney. “We provide informational talks whenever we have the opportunity.”

First Step is located at 120 North Everest Road in Newberg. For more information on how First Step can help, call the center at 503-538-7647.

Anvil AcademyWe weren’t sure if the Anvil Academy’s inaugural Pacific Overland Expo Horsedrawn Vehicle Auction, held April 22-23 at the fairgrounds in McMinnville, would be a success. But it turned out to be a huge success, and we made money for the YES (Youth Educational Scholarship) Foundation! The event focused on horse-drawn farm equipment, wagons, buggies, and stagecoaches, with demonstrations of leather work and blacksmithing.

Over the past few years, there has been less and less interest in horse-drawn vehicles. Like a lot of old crafts, the true masters are dying off, and the kids are not as interested in the past. However, we believe there is a large enough interest in the coming generation to keep some of that going and to offer a venue for their needs.

During the weekend’s activities, we were able to meet some of the giants in the industry who also have a passion for the craft, and they have offered to help both financially and through teaching. We are confident the auctions will continue and become an important event for Anvil Academy and Yamhill County.

My guess is that there were about 700 in the stands at the peak, and there was very spirited bidding going on until the last item was sold. I know we will have a better turnout next year; we have a whole year to plan and we’ll have the input of the crowd that makes this thing go, makes it successful, and most importantly, makes it fun!

Tiger Woods, the Man ~ the Marvel ~ the Mystery. While in his early 30s he was known as “the most dominant player in history” and “maybe the fittest golfer ever” (April Sports Illustrated) ~ so what happened?

It was 2009, Thanksgiving Day, when Tiger Woods crashed his SUV. Prior to the crash, it appeared he was an unstoppable force and would continue to enthrall audiences of all ages. Then, the unthinkable happened ~ his body, young and strong, was defeated. Since that fateful night, Tiger has had three back surgeries and has been handed a new lifestyle no young man could ever foresee.

Unlike Tiger, whose income previously seemed to know no boundaries, many live well within their means and strive to be the best provider possible. The ability to earn an income is a key ingredient of any financial plan. While life will always take turns we don’t expect, knowing your personal situation and exploring options to prepare for those “didn’t see that coming” moments is a prudent practice.

The loss of income due to disability, whether illness or accidental, can bring a double-punch to the budget. Not only is the source of income to pay the standard bills lost, but most incur additional expenses (medical) due to the disability.

Many understand the importance of life insurance, but what is commonly overlooked is purchasing insurance on the income ~ the financial stability piece of the equation.

Dr. Randy Morgan
Newberg Family DentalWhile you might think that not brushing and flossing frequently enough places only your teeth and gums at risk, a number of studies in recent years have shown that patients with poor oral health have an increased risk of developing a number of chronic, long-term health problems ~ including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and even some forms of cancer.

Yet a new study suggests that the list of health problems caused by poor oral health may have grown. According to researchers, poor oral hygiene habits may also increase an individual’s risk of hypertension. Researchers determined that oral hygiene should be considered an independent risk factor for hypertension, and that practicing quality oral hygiene habits may help control and lower an individual’s risk for the condition.

About 80 million American adults have been diagnosed with hypertension, according to the American Heart Association. Commonly referred to as “the silent killer,” hypertension can lead to damage of the kidneys and heart arteries and stroke.

Gum disease affects more than 50 percent of adults in the U.S., according the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Gum disease is caused by an inflammatory reaction to a bacterial infection below the gum line, and the condition can lead to receding gums, irritation, swelling, and tooth loss if not properly treated. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and scheduling regular dental exams and cleanings to lower your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
