ELMER'S FLAG & BANNER, KITES TOO! - David AnchelIf you’ve ever seen a U.S. soldier in full uniform, you may have wondered why the flag patch on their right shoulder is affixed “backwards.”

In other words, why is the star field on the right-hand corner of the flag, rather than the left?

The answer has everything to do with the rectangular subset of the American flag that has 50 white stars and blue backing. It’s typically called the “union” or canton.

According to the flag code, when worn on either the left or right shoulder, the American flag patch should face forward (to the observer’s right). Per the Department of Defense, this “gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.”

If that still doesn’t make sense, imagine a normal standard bearer marching forward while carrying the American flag. The star field would come first, followed by the red and white bars. Anything else would look absurd.

Bonus flag trivia: Can tearing an American flag ever be done respectfully? Consider the story of Robert E. Peary, the first person to reach the geographic North Pole. Like any good explorer, Peary planted a U.S. flag there.

But Peary actually made several attempts to reach the North Pole, and tore off scraps of the flag at each of his successive “farthest norths.” Thus, we remember Peary as the only man in history to be honored for ripping up an American flag.

THE PORTLAND CLINIC  - Dr. Ryan A. Gorger, O.D.During this time of year, we often get out and about more frequently with the wonderful summer weather. With just a little fore "sight" and preparation, you can reduce the potential of harming your eyes.

Wearing protective eyewear. With the Fourth of July coming up, it is just as important to protect your eyes from fireworks! I routinely see eye injuries from fireworks that can have potentially sight-threatening complications. Be sure to follow the firework manufacturer's recommendations and wear safety eyewear when igniting any fireworks. If you are unsure of the proper safety eyewear for the activity, ask your eye doctor for recommendations.

Sun protection. Just as you would protect your skin from the damaging ultraviolet rays from the sun that can cause a sunburn, you should protect your eyes as well. It is important to wear sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B light rays. This will help protect you from getting a sunburn on your eyes. It can also help to prevent early development of cataracts and macular degeneration.

Annual eye exams. Having a yearly eye exam is the best way to make sure your vision and eye health is doing well. There are many eye diseases that do not necessarily have any symptoms until permanent damage is done. Early identification and intervention is the key to managing any disease and this is just as true with our eyes.

NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Dr. Michael DavisA popular method of pain control for labor is an epidural. This method is always elective, and not for everyone. However, in our patient population, just over 90 percent of our patients will have an epidural during labor.

Preparing for an epidural involves an interview with an anesthesia professional: either an anesthesiologist or a certified nurse anesthetist. The interview will include a review of your personal health information, the risks and benefits of the procedure, alternatives and answer your questions about the procedure.

Your anesthesia provider will give you an injection of lidocaine in the skin of the back. While this feels like a bee sting at first, the rest of the procedure is relatively pain free. Most patients get a button to control extra doses of the medicine as needed during labor.

The overall goal of the epidural is to differentially numb the type of nerves that carry temperature and pain messages to the brain. Ideally, the nerves that carry light touch, position and movement messages are NOT affected, or affected minimally.

Because the type of medication that is used is placed in a tiny space around the spinal column, there is very little absorption of the medication into the systemic circulation, and therefore the baby. As a result, the epidural can be used from active labor through the delivery and any needed repair after delivery.

Look for the next article: Surprising facts about epidurals.

LIVING RIGHT SENIOR PLACEMENT - Jennifer Cook-BumanThey may be worth every penny, but the cost of a senior living community can quickly add up. Thankfully, two government programs are designed to provide health and medical services to all citizens, regardless of income level.

Read on for the key differences between Medicare and Medicaid.

Medicare

Similar to private health insurance, Medicare is great for reducing or eliminating the cost of certain prescription medications, doctor appointments and hospitalizations. After hospitalization, Medicare will usually pay for a skilled nursing for the purpose of rehabilitation, and often physical and/or occupational therapy and home health nurses to visit you at home, but only for a limited time.

Unfortunately, Medicare is intended only for short-term care, and generally does not pay for extended periods of treatment, including independent, assisted living, adult care homes or memory care communities.

Medicaid

Unlike Medicare, Medicaid can and regularly does pay for long-term senior living care, though certain requirements apply. In general, Medicaid recipients must show that they are low income, facing medical expenses that exceed their income and that they have already spent their virtually all of their savings and assets. There is a five year “look-back” period to prevent people from gifting all of their money away to be able to qualify for Medicaid.

At this point, Medicaid benefits can pay for long-term care, as well as alternatives like in-home care or assisted living. Not every senior community has a contract with Medicaid, so it’s important to know what your financial situation is, as well as if the community has the contract, if you anticipate the need.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonAny inkjet printer with four or more “tank” ink cartridges has a separate printhead. Cartridges lock into the printer’s carriage feeding ink to the printhead.

This differs from the two-cartridge system; a black and a tri-color cartridge, where the printhead is a physical component of each cartridge.

Guess what? Tank-style printheads clog up. Lots of use, little use or general use. They clog up.

So, all Brother, Epson, Canon and HP printers with four or more cartridges have a printhead which needs to be cleaned periodically.

At Cartridge Network’s store we ask customers purchasing tank-style cartridges if they clean their printer’s printheads. Maybe 15 percent say they do. Ten percent know about it but don’t and 75 percent look at us as if we’re nuts.

We go over a handout with short instructions for each type of printer and give it to them. Come in or call us for a copy.

One can clean the printhead directly from the printer or from one’s computer. A test page is the first step indicating if all the nozzles are printing correctly or clogged. If clogged, do a “deep clean.” If they are severely clogged, you may have to repeat the process many times.

If they become too clogged you will be looking for a new printer. Really? We recycle several printers daily which are old or have clogged printheads. We probably have a good new printer waiting for you.

Why do we go to these lengths explaining printhead clearing? Because so many people come in with print quality samples or their actual printers. Most are astonished by the process. So easy. Once they’re aware and clean periodically, everyone’s life is easier.

Yes, you will use a little ink, but doing so sure beats having a poor print when you are actually trying to print something.

As a full-service independent, non-franchise operation located in Raleigh Hills, on the Portland – Beaverton border, Cartridge Network sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock several dozen different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.” We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenTraditional views of pearls are shifting, and with good reason. New shapes, colors and affordable prices mean that the pearls at Nielsen’s Jewelers can fit anyone’s style.

Much like amber, coral and ivory, pearl is a naturally occurring organic gem. Unlike mineral gems, pearls require no cutting or polishing to uncover their brilliance. Pearls are produced by mollusks (such as oysters, clams or mussels) and are actually meant as a defense mechanism. Today, most pearls are cultivated on pearl farms.

At Nielsen’s, we hand pick our pearls for luster, natural brilliance and three-dimensional glow. Any pearl that appears too chalky or dull indicates low quality.

Pearls will always be a great complement to “girly” attire, but their versatility makes them appropriate in almost any setting. We tell our customers all the time, “forget the country club stigma and find your own pearl look.”

For the Bohemian look, try layering your pearls with other materials, like a silver or gold chain—or stack them with our Leather Story wrap bracelets. For a more whimsical style, try a strand of Nielsen’s unique square or petal pearls, available in natural hues of purple, pink, orange and gold. For a chic look, try our long strand of black Tahitian pearls mixed with sparkling black spinel.

Pearls can take you from the boardroom meeting to the downtown nightclub, and everywhere inbetween. Stop by Nielsen’s for a look at our incredible collection today!

THE PORTLAND CLINIC - Laura Bitts, M.D.After two decades of increasing use of OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin and other opioid pain medicines in the United States, new studies are finding that these drugs are associated with far more harm than previously understood. In Oregon, the majority of drug-overdose deaths are now linked to prescription opioids.

Short-term use of opioids can be helpful for acute pain, but the research to date has found no good evidence that opioids improve pain or function when used long term. In addition to these risks of addiction and overdose, opioids can have far-reaching effects on your body and brain. They may cause or worsen depression, sleep problems, cardiovascular disease and low testosterone. They may reduce your ability to function socially or at work. And for many people, they actually increase sensitivity to pain.

Some people—particularly those with a history of depression, trauma or addiction to alcohol or other substances—are at especially high risk. One study found that 47 percent of people on opioids for 30 days will still be on them three years later. Addiction is a serious health issue, not a personal failing, that can and should be treated.

Your doctor can help you explore the approaches that might work best for you depending on your individual pain issues. Three that work very well for many people are non-opioid pain medications, physical therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. It’s well worth a conversation with your doctor.

Although wood is the most common, there are other options for a fence depending on your specific need. Decorative iron fences by Fortress or chain link barriers are also very common when superior strength and security are the main objective.

ADVANCED ENERGY SERVICES - Julia and Mike WernerWhat if you could change the look and feel of your home, save a ton of money on your heating and cooling bills and, best of all, get the government to subsidize the cost? It may sound like a fantasy—but it’s really true!

It works like this. Over the past few years, window manufacturers have developed new quadruple-coated Low-E glass (the “e” stands for emissivity). In essence, Low-E glass reflects thermal energy, allowing visible light in while keeping heat out, all thanks to a special veneer.

Now the Energy Trust of Oregon was already paying consumers about $1.75 per square foot of glass to install energy-efficient windows in their homes and businesses. But these new windows are even more efficient, bumping up your rebate to $4 per square foot. In the typical home, this can amount to $1,000 to $1,200 in reduced costs! When you factor in the savings over time on your utilities, installation literally pays for itself.

But before you rush off to go hire a contractor, remember that who installs your windows matters just as much as the make and manufacturer. I’ve had my contractor’s license since 1977, and I’ve overseen more than 20,000 installations throughout my career. At Advanced Energy Services, we provide our customers with professionally trained window experts that ensure the highest level of quality, knowledge and professionalism.

So why wait? Schedule your free in-home consultation with Advanced Energy Services today!

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsAn experienced business attorney is crucial for creating a strong foundation for your business partnership. Without a written partnership agreement, your business will lack a clear outline of what roles, obligations and rewards are due to each partner.

Here are five things you can do to protect yourself when forming a business partnership.

Put everything in writing. When it comes to revenue sharing, intellectual property rights and start-up cost repayment, don’t assume a “handshake” deal will be honored years or even decades later. Use a trusted business attorney to create a legally-binding partnership agreement.

Have a long-term plan. Disagreeing on (or not even discussing) the long-term goals of your business partnership is practically failure by design. Having a comprehensive growth strategy helps you prepare for the future—and anticipate future headaches.

Consider a limited partnership. In a traditional partnership agreement, both partners assume liability (read: responsibility) for the actions of the other. A limited partnership narrows your liability to your own actions.

Make it uneven. Every business needs a boss, including business partnerships. A 60-40 or even 70-30 ownership split ensures that deadlocks will be broken and final decisions made.

Create an exit strategy. In the case of a break up, your partnership agreement should stipulate procedures for buying out a partner, splitting company property and sharing closing expenses.

For more information on drafting partnership agreements, contact The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today!

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Neal KuhnhausenBiltwell Furniture’s retro-modern furnishings are some of our most popular offerings—take just one glance and you can see why!

For example, the “Bruno” couch (pictured) is defined by its sharp clean lines, which give the piece an angular, modish look without appearing overly austere or formal. The slate fabric hints at rustic authenticity without appearing quaint or hokey.

In fact, that’s one of the things I love about Biltwell: their furniture has an almost timeless charm and wouldn’t seem out of place anywhere. I can imagine the “Bruno” as a set piece for a period drama, but it would be equally appropriate in the hip waiting area of a downtown loft office space.

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Wow! What a couch!This versatility—some just call it style—makes the “Bruno” a true customer favorite, and that’s one of the reasons I chose to spotlight the piece in the first place.

It only helps that Biltwell is itself a fantastic Portland company. All of their furniture is produced right here in PDX; the foam stuffing is also produced by another local company and their wood frames are sustainably harvested in the Pacific Northwest too.

So shop local, and support two authentically Portland businesses for the price of one! See you soon!
