CLUB FIT  - FROM LEFT: Two Club Fit employees stand next to Barb and Ron Raines.Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast (or just looking for a change of scenery), there’s nothing quite like outdoor exercise. But forgetting the basics can leave you disappointed and discouraged. Read on for five tips to get your outdoor fitness routine right.

Grab the gear. Having the right outdoor gear will protect you from falls, accidents, inclement weather and dehydration. Wearing sensible shoes is an obvious must-do, but I recommend throwing a lightweight jacket and baseball hat in your pack as well.

Don’t wait for water. Did you know it takes two to four hours for water to completely cycle through your tissues? I recommend drinking at least 30 ounces before you’re out the door, then sipping on another 16 ounces during your workout.

Pack some snacks. Don’t confuse exercise with starvation. Healthy snacks can provide that little boost that keeps you from quitting. The best workout snacks are salty high-protein nibblers and water-laden fruits and veggies, including nuts, seeds, jerky, apples, carrots and crackers. They pack well too!

Slap on sunscreen. Don’t turn your healthy behavior into a health risk! Not only does sunburn cause skin cancer, but it can sap your energy, leaving you feeling beat and bushed.

Defeat the heat. Don’t wait until midday to start your workout—it’s already too hot. Instead, start early and beat the crowds. I also recommend forgoing coffee before a big workout (but don’t skip that morning meal too)!

CANBY TELCOM - Merry Shepard watchTVeverywhere services provide online access to top rated shows, broadcasts and movies from several TV channels and networks over a high-speed Internet connection. Most pay TV providers already offer some kind of “everywhere” service. Users can watch available content ‘OnDemand’ within their subscribed TV tier on a number of devices – tablets, smartphones, or third party streaming media players. It is an easy way to catch up on a favorite series during down time while on the go – a break at work, on vacation or mass transit commuting.

Research indicates the number of Americans enjoying favorite TV episodes ‘on demand’ and ‘on the go’ is expected to soar. 23% of US pay-TV subscribers already watch television content on smartphones, connected TVs, and tablet devices at least once per month. That number is expected to grow to 70% of subscribers by the end of 2017.

The big push toward streaming content online started when Netflix began to offer streaming content in addition to its DVD postal mail service. Roku, Apple, and Amazon followed with their own streaming media players that connect the Internet directly to a TV, with content found through various “apps.” One by one, TV networks began to offer online content, both free and authenticated through local providers.

Canby Telcom offers watchTVeverywhere content for nearly 80 different cable television channels. Access to these shows, movies and more is free for their Digital TV subscribers. They also have a Roku app that delivers live, local broadcast channels over a high-speed Internet connection. Learn more about both services at www.canbytel.com/television.

CANBY CLINIC - Dr. Robert NeilsonNow that we have all tasted this summer’s heat, it’s time to prepare for heat exposure and to know how to treat heat-related illness. Everyone wants to be out by the pool or the river when it’s hot, but it’s not always possible. There is always some chore that needs to get done outside, on the hottest day of the year. Good thing that nature provides tools to cool down!

Food is medicine, and simple diet changes can make the heat quite tolerable. Emphasize eating raw fruits and vegetables including, apples, watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, lemon, cucumber, lettuce, summer squash, and zucchini. Stay cool by drinking herbal tea made from peppermint, chrysanthemum, or chamomile. There are opposing foods that have a warming effect, and will make you feel worse during the summer heat. You will stay cooler by limiting these foods including, fatty meats, alcohol, coffee, strong spices, and fried foods.

Overexposure to extreme heat can be very damaging, and can result in dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include excessive sweating, headache, fatigue, and dark-colored urine. Heat stroke, a life-threatening emergency, includes symptoms of dry, hot skin, seizures, altered mental status, muscle cramps, nausea, and vomiting. The key to treating heat-related illness is to cool down by resting in a cool environment, hydrating, and immersing in cool water.

If you are interested in additional ways to stay cool this summer, or have suffered from a heat-related illness, stop by the Canby Clinic to meet with one of the physicians. For an individualized assessment, call us at 503-266-7443 or visit us at 452 NW 1st Avenue in Canby.

NEAL FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Alan NealIf you’re an adult with less than perfect teeth, there may be some aspect of your smile that catches your eye. This can include: spaces between your teeth, crowding, rotated teeth and/or teeth that stick out. If you notice any of these aspects of your smile, you might want to consider a limited adult braces treatment. Today, I’d like to tell you about the product I recommend, and the one my patients prefer: Six Month Smiles (SMS).

Here’s what makes SMS one of the best products on the market.

They work faster. It says it right there in the name: Average treatment time for SMS is just six months. Clear aligners (like Invisalign) take two to three years to really work—and in some cases you may need braces for 3 or 4 months anyway to finalize movement. The longest I’ve seen a patient wear Six Month Smiles’ product is twelve months.

They work better. SMS uses a newer wire made of nickel titanium. This wire provides gentle, constant pressure and does not require wire bending, therefore the focus is on tooth movement and there is less discomfort during treatment. I have done more comprehensive braces cases under the supervision of our clinic orthodontist, and most of the tooth straightening occurs in the first four to six months of treatment. Comprehensive braces treatment is usually 18 to 30 months and usually involves correcting the bite. In contrast, SMS focuses on the teeth people can actually see when you smile. It doesn’t realign your bite, but it's perfect for adults with relapsing crooked teeth (someone forgot to wear their retainer!) or who need minor corrections to get their teeth in position for other dental work (veneers, bridges, implants, etc.).

They’re nearly invisible. Six Month Smiles uses clear braces, tooth-colored wires and clear elastics, making the product essentially invisible. Adults (like kids) tend to be a little shy about undergoing dental work, and SMS is by far the least noticeable option. I’ve actually had patients tell me they were disappointed that their friends DIDN’T notice their braces.

GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonDo you have a renters insurance policy? Thirty-seven percent do! Whether your rental agreement requires it, this type of policy can provide peace of mind. But do you fully understand what the policy covers? Here's a breakdown of a few important points.

Replacement cost or actual cost? There are two choices when it comes to how renters insurance values your belongings. Replacement cost determines the amount paid out for a claim based on the present-day cost of buying the same item. Other policies use actual cash value, which takes into account depreciation due to normal wear and tear. This type of coverage will pay out less.

Deductibles. A deductible is an out-of-pocket amount a policyholder is responsible for when a claim is filed. In general, the higher the deductible, the lower the monthly insurance premium. The insurance company handles the remaining cost.

Discounts. Most insurance companies offer discounts if you bundle renters insurance with other policies, like auto insurance. Safety equipment, like fire alarms and security systems, may result in a reduced rate. Age, good credit and a claim-free history are also factors.

Liability protection. Most renters insurance policies include some degree of liability coverage, which helps protect the policyholder from out-of-pocket expenses if an individual is injured in your home. For renters who want extra protection, a personal umbrella policy may be worth looking into. It can provide further liability coverage beyond the limits of regular policies.

Jonathan Crane, Integrity StaffingWhat makes Integrity Staffing different?

“We have one location, Tualatin, and we’ve been here 16 years,” says Jonathan Crane, president. “We’re locally owned and operated. Our focus is our client’s needs, not our own expansion.”

Integrity is a full-service staffing agency, providing labor for local businesses and placement for potential employees.

“We do all kinds of placements,” said Crane. “Metal Fabrication, Light Industrial Production, Administrative, IT, Management and more. We have some high-end, sophisticated administrative and executive positions we fill, along with production jobs for local manufacturing and light industrial companies.”

Integrity helps companies refine their search by presenting viable candidates for consideration with their eight-employee office focusing on Southwest Portland, Tualatin, Canby, Wilsonville and Sherwood.

“In this market, with incredibly low unemployment, it’s hard to find good-quality people” says Crane. “We offer an excellent means to find those people.”

Candidates are typically temp-to-hire for 90 days, during which they are employees of Integrity Staffing.

Employers like to see performance over time. “The normal employer burdens of hiring someone new are filled by us,” added Crane, “Plus, the employer gets to see the candidate’s performance over time. Any candidate can interview well, but how are their work habits?”

Integrity Staffing not only helps clients find candidates, they also help job-seekers improve resumes and practice interview skills to better their chances of success.

Crane said that most staffing agencies are corporate and have multiple locations, so recruiting efforts can run thin.

“We have a fantastic recruiting team with low turnover,” he added. “We visit the workplace and get to know the companies. Ninety percent of a good fit is understanding corporate culture, not skills, so we make the extra effort to get it right.”

MCLARENS CARPET ONE - Steve McLarenThe best cure for a spill is a speedy response. If a spill becomes a stain, it will be much more difficult to remove. Here are some tips for carpet stain removal.

There are three important steps that you must use in carpet stain removal, hopefully before it has a chance to set in your carpet:

Apply: Dampen a clean, white (not printed) paper towel with a cleaning solution. Then moisten the carpet with it. Avoid thoroughly wetting the carpet, as this can damage the carpet and backing.

Blot: Absorb the excess liquid from the carpet by pressing straight down with a clean, dry, white paper towel. Do not rub. Place a half-inch thick pad of clean, dry, white paper towels with a weight on top and leave overnight if necessary.

Scrape: Gently scratch the soiled area with the blunt edge of a spoon. Scrape from the outside edge of the spot toward the center.

For stain removal advice, from asphalt to the unknown, go to Carpet One’s Stain Removal Chart at carpetone.com/stainremoval-chart. Or, check out YouTube.com/carpetonefh.

If you’ve been wanting to update your floors, counter tops or window coverings, now is the time.

CANBY CLINIC - Robert Neilson, NDWith summer nearly upon us, here are a few tips to help prevent skin changes during sun exposure. Between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the sun’s effects on skin are strongest, so limit your exposure and cover up. The guideline with sunscreen is, if you don’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin (I’m serious here). Skin is porous and absorbs what you put on it. I recommend mineral-based sunscreens, such as Jason’s or Alba, which are formulated with zinc or titanium oxide, preventing you from absorbing unnecessary chemicals found in common sunscreens.

Additionally, one of the very best ways to prevent skin cancer is by eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, ideally eight to 10 servings daily. Green tea and omega-3 fatty acids also are preventative in developing skin cancer.

If you have noticed a mole that you are concerned about, first go through the ABCs to see if you are at risk for skin cancer. If you answer yes to any of these questions, have your physician examine the suspicious moles.

A: Asymmetric - is the mole irregular or not symmetrical in shape?

B: Borders - are the borders of the mole difficult to define?

C: Color - are there multiple different colors or shades within the mole?

D: Diameter - is the mole larger than 6 millimeters?

E: Evolving - is the mole changing or evolving quickly?

So whether you are seeking advice for prevention of sun exposure, or want a thorough skin check for cancer risk, the physicians at Canby Clinic are ready to help you with your skincare needs. Please schedule an appointment for an individualized assessment; you can call us at (503) 266-7443 or visit us at 452 NW 1st Avenue in Canby.

CANBY TELCOM - Josh Peak, Technical Support Specialist (MyTech)Virtual Reality (VR) is not quite ready for the consumer stage, but if it is going to take off, it will soon. Like all new gadgets, initial offerings will be prohibitively expensive, which begs the question: Does VR have the staying power to reach a price point accessible to the masses?

Two distinct flavors of VR equipment have risen to prominence: head-mounted computers with built-in screens like Oculus Rift ($599) or HTC Vive ($799), and visors with slots for smartphones like Samsung Gear ($99) or Google Cardboard ($15 to $120). The former comes with far more interactive offerings, including an abundant library of already available apps and games with several more in development. However, a separate computer with very impressive hardware is required to take advantage of these sets, driving the cost of entry even higher. Despite this, VR headsets have taken the YouTube world by storm with videos of disoriented people navigating unseen digital landscapes racking up millions of views with regularity.

Smartphone head-mounts can at first seem like a gimmick or desk toy, but with the omnipresence of smartphones, the low cost of the mounts, and the prolific mobile app market, VR driven by phones could very easily come out on top. The lion’s share of VR mobile apps currently revolve around viewing 3D and 360-degree video content, but the potential for more is there.

Regardless of one’s interest in using such a product, watching a fledgling industry fail or flourish is always entertaining.

GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonHere's an accident checklist for you to follow, especially when a stressful situation makes it difficult to think clearly:

Start with safety. Get to a safe location and switch on your hazard lights before doing anything else. If you have a roadside safety kit, set up warning triangles, light sticks or emergency cones to direct other drivers around the accident scene.

Assess injuries. Determine if anyone has sustained any injuries so you can make an accurate report to the police and, if necessary, call for medical help as soon as possible. If you have a first aid kit, do what you can to tend to injuries while you wait for help.

Contact the police. If there's a dispute or the other party isn't cooperating, contact the police. Even for minor accidents, many states require that you call the police if there are any injuries or if the damage exceeds a certain amount. Check your state's laws for more information.

Exchange information. Obtain contact and insurance information from the other driver. This should include full name, contact details, insurance company and policy number, driver's license and plate number, and vehicle model and description.

Document the details. Take a moment to record your recollection of events. It's a good idea to use your phone's camera to take pictures of the damage, the accident scene and injuries in case a future dispute should arise.

Report it to your insurance company. Contact your insurance company and have the proper damage assessment done right away.

NEAL FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Alan NealWelcome back to the third and final installment of my series on sleep apnea, a blocked-airway disorder that can disrupt your REM sleep 60-plus times per night. You can read the first two parts online (or give my office a call at (503) 266-2705 and we can email you a free copy).

For those with severe to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea, the best option is usually a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure system, or CPAP.

CPAP consists of a head strap device that fits over your mouth and nose; the device is then connected to a small air motor via plastic tubing. The motor sends a continuous stream of air to your lungs. Even this light stream is usually enough to keep your throat open and make breathing easy. CPAPs are pretty amazing medical devices and the more recent ones are quieter, have more controls and your medical doctor can monitor and adjust them according to your needs via the internet.

Dental sleep appliance therapy, an alternative to CPAP, is better suited for mild to moderate cases—or patients who want the freedom to travel without a CPAP machine (or who cannot tolerate a CPAP). Dental appliances, otherwise known as Continuous Open Airway Therapy (COAT), are similar to a nighttime mouth guard, except that a dental appliance physically moves the lower jaw forward, repositions the tongue and keeps the airway unobstructed. I usually recommend the following appliances: TAP-3, OASYS and Sonomed.

From my clinical experience and all the classes I have attended studying sleep medicine—I do not recommend the over-the-counter appliances that can be found at the local pharmacy—they help a little, but a CPAP or dental appliance is more effective. My mother had been using an OTC appliance, but after I made her a “real” sleep appliance in my office she said, ”Not only did I sleep better, but my jaw isn’t as sore and my bite isn’t off when I wake up.”

Remember that untreated sleep apnea can worsen a number of other conditions, including obesity, congestive heart failure, type II diabetes, allergies and high blood pressure.

For more information and treatment options, give me a call or schedule an appointment at Neal Family Dental today!
