BRAIN FOR THE GYM- AN INTERESTING IDEA FOR PARKS, TDYCC OR LIBRARY IF WE COULD GET GRANTS

The following article appeared in the Wall Street Journal. I think this is an interesting idea--especially if the parks dept, TDYCC or library can get a grant to fund such an idea....

The Latest in Mental Health: Working Out at the 'Brain Gym'
Outfits Promise to Keep Older Minds Sharp With Computers, Walnuts and Green By KELLY GREENE
SAN FRANCISCO -- Linda Hale Bucklin, a 63-year-old writer, signed up on the spot when she saw a new "gym for the brain" in her neighborhood here. She now works out three times a week and credits a computer "visual processing" program for helping her find her car keys faster and sharpen her tennis skills.

On the court, "my game is just at a different level," says Ms. Bucklin. "I'm playing with 40-year-olds, and I'm holding my own really well."


Linda Hale Bucklin
Vibrant Brains, the business that drew her in, has attracted about 200 members since December 2007, according to its owners. Patrons pay $60 a month to work out on 20 computer stations loaded with "mental fitness" software, including a "neurobics circuit" that purports to stretch the brain. Ms. Bucklin says she's addicted to an art-auction game that displays a dozen Monets for purchase. "Then they'll intersperse them with other Monets, and you have to tell them apart," she says. "I minored in art history, and I still find it difficult."

Thousands of Americans are choosing to join a small, but growing, number of "brain gyms" springing up around the country. Similar brain-teaser programs are available on home computers, sometimes free of charge. The scientific jury is still out on the efficacy of such software.

The centerpiece of most outlets is a computer lab equipped with software from companies with names like Posit Science Corp., CogniFit Ltd., Lumos Labs Inc. and Happy Neuron Inc. Like gym rats who hit the weight machines or take Pilates classes, some users of the new technology say they prefer working with personal trainers. In this context, sessions are spent doing things like mental-fitness assessments and relaxation exercises in addition to basic cognitive training.

Sparks of Genius, in Boca Raton, is a Florida start-up drawing older adults with "scientific-based brain-fitness workouts." In southern California, a dozen "Nifty after Fifty" fitness clubs are combining traditional exercise with time in front of computer screens, claiming that mental calisthenics work best after physical exercise. Canyon Ranch, a Tucson, Ariz.-based spa operator, has added a series of "Memory & More" programs at its Lenox, Mass., resort, which include classes in brain nutrition, genetic workups, and cognitive training.

Brain exercise is spreading beyond gym walls, too. In Chicago, "Marbles: The Brain Store" offers classes on improving mental health. The New England Cognitive Center, a nonprofit group in Hartford, Conn., is teaching trainers to take its "Brain G.Y.M.M." program to community centers around the country. More than 700 retirement communities have added computerized brain-fitness centers in the past three years, according to Alvaro Fernandez, co-founder of SharpBrains Inc., a firm that surveys the brain-fitness software market.

"We saw this area explode last year," says Mr. Fernandez. He estimates that consumers spent more than $80 million in 2008 on mental fitness. "You have an industry with tools and coaches. This is more real than people think."

The industry pins its claims for brain exercise on a relatively new scientific discovery: neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to rewire itself throughout life by creating neural connections in response to mental activity. In a study published in 2006 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, a clinical trial involving 2,832 older adults concluded that "cognitive training" -- such as identifying patterns in a series of letters or words -- helped improve memory and reasoning skills.

Brain Workout
Can you name who painted "The Persistence of Memory"? Fold a piece of paper into a brain shape? Try some exercises designed to test your mental fitness.

Brain Trivia Crossword Puzzle: Test your knowledgeOrigami Brain: Make a brain model out of paperCool Brain Trick: See hidden 3D imagesBrain Aerobics: Test your memory and attention skillsSpeed: Brain response to soundsA more recent study, of 487 adults aged 65 and older, found that people who trained on brain-fitness software for 40 hours over eight weeks noted significant improvement with memory and attention skills. The study is scheduled to be published in the April edition of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.

That said, "mental fitness" is still a squishy concept. Some scientists consider brain gyms simply the latest gimmick to trade on the public's fear of age-related dementia. An estimated 5.3 million Americans already have Alzheimer's disease. And as the huge baby-boom generation continues to gray, the Alzheimer's Association predicts that, by 2010, nearly a half-million new cases will develop every year -- a trend that will last for decades.

Some neuroscientists say it's simply too early to tell whether a specific form of brain exercise will result in lasting benefits or a lower incidence of dementia.

"Cognitive activity is probably good, and it may make someone sharper. But there's very little evidence that shows that these things in a controlled trial reduce Alzheimer's disease or affect everyday function," says David Loewenstein, a psychiatry professor at the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine.

But the "worried well" and people already in the early stages of dementia aren't waiting for research findings. More than 5.5 million copies of Nintendo Co.'s "Brain Age" games have been sold in the U.S. since 2006, the company says, jumpstarting awareness of the brain-exercise field.

While many brain-flexing centers are marketed primarily toward baby boomers, that generation's parents are signing up, as well. Last year, Eva Slane, an 80-year-old retired theatrical agent, joined Neurobics Club, a brain gym in Sarasota, Fla. "I would like to stay as sharp as I am," she says. Her favorite piece of equipment at the moment: the Dakim BrainFitness System, a touch-screen computer that uses a game-show-like format with stories, voiceovers and pre-1950s film and music clips.

Working out at Vibrant Brains, a 'brain gym' in San Francisco.
Marshall Kahn, an 82-year-old family doctor in Fullerton, Calif., says he got such a boost from brain exercises he started doing at a "Nifty after Fifty" club that he decided to start seeing patients again part-time. "Doing all the mental exercise," he says, "I realized I've still got it."

Lisa Schoonerman, the 41 year-old co-founder of Vibrant Brains LLC, says she first looked into cerebral gyms after her mother was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia -- an often fast-progressing form of memory loss. Her partner, Jan Zivic, had used earlier versions of brain games after a car accident 11 years ago left her in a coma and compromised much of her memory. Both were struck by the idea of bulking up the brain, what brain scientists refer to as "cognitive reserve." The theory: People engaged in greater degrees of mental stimulation increase their brain mass and neural pathways, protecting them if a brain injury or dementia starts chipping away at brain connections.

The duo's first storefront, dubbed vibrantBrains, has a small retail area, computer lab and a lounge stocked with walnuts and green tea. (Some nutritionists say such snacks promote brain health.) A second location opened in January.

Customer Gail Moore, 63, says it was tough to adjust to never feeling like she "won" at the exercises. "I simply hate this one called 'Master Gardener.' All the leaves look exactly alike to me, and I keep missing it. But I keep telling myself that the point is not getting very good at something, the point is doing it."

RIDGE HILL INTERSECTION-TRAFFIC SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS


When it became clear to Greenburgh, Ardsley & Hastings officials that we could not legally stop the RidgeHill development from being approved by Yonkers we entered into an agreement with the city and Ridge Hill developers. Ridgehill would contribute $5 million towards road improvements. A committee made up of representativers of Greenburgh, Ardsley & Hastings has been meeting. This committee has been reviewing various traffic safety options.This is a summary of the committees most recent meeting, as reported by Thomas Madden, Commissioner of Planning.
PAUL FEINER

At the March 19, 2009, Ridgehill Intersection Improvement Committee, discussed and classified the twelve project study areas into three categories, in order better allocate resources when studying the intersections and road segments. These categories are 1) Intersections that would benefit from further study and have the most impact; 2) Intersections or improvements that should be sent to the State or County as a report and analysis for future road work considerations; and 3) No improvements needed until 2028.



Category A: Intersections that would benefit from further study



1) Route 9A and Jackson Avenue

a) Suggested improvements

It is proposed to add an exclusive left-turn lane to all approaches and to add an exclusive right-turn lane to the northbound approach, so that the southbound, eastbound, and westbound approaches would consist of a left turn lane and a through/right turn lane, and the northbound approach would consist of a left turn lane, a through lane, and a right turn lane. The traffic signal would also be improved.



2) Jackson Avenue and South Sprain Road

a) Suggested improvements

It is proposed to add an exclusive left turn lane to the northbound approach, and to add a right turn lane to the eastbound approach. So that the northbound approach would consist of two left turn lanes, and a right turn lane. The eastbound approach would consist of a right turn lane and a through lane, and the westbound approach would consist of a left turn lane and a through lane. The traffic signal would also be improved.



3) Jackson Avenue and North Sprain Road

a) Suggested improvements

The installation of a traffic signal along with a realignment of the intersection to a typical T-intersection will eliminate the delays at this intersection.



4) Route 9A and Ashford Avenue

a) Suggested improvements

It is proposed to add one additional through lane to each the southbound, westbound, and eastbound approaches, along with the required signal improvements to improve the operation of this intersection. This major improvement will require considerable study due in part to the fact that there is little available land for the improvements.



5) Widening of Route 9A between Ashford Avenue and Heatherdell Road

a) Suggested improvements

Study in conjunction with Route 9A and Ashford Avenue to widen the road and straighten horizontal and vertical curves.



Category B: Intersections or improvements that should be sent to the State or County as a report and analysis for future road work considerations.



1) Jackson Avenue and Southbound Sprain Brook Parkway Ramps

a) Suggested improvements

It is proposed to add an additional southbound exclusive left turn lane. The southbound double left with the required signal improvements will improve the operation of this intersection.



2) Jackson Avenue and Northbound Sprain Brook Parkway Ramps

a) Suggested improvements

Redistributing the available green time is proposed to improve the operations at this location.



3) Sprain Road and Ardsley Road/Ashford Avenue

a) Suggested improvements

The installation of a traffic signal along with a realignment of the intersection is recommended. It is proposed to add an eastbound left turn lane and a westbound left turn lane. The horizontal and vertical curves must be closely studied to determine how much the slope of Ardsley Road must be modified in order to allow for safe stopping during inclement weather, as this is anticipated to be the greatest issue with the addition of a traffic signal.

4) "S" curve along Jackson Avenue between Sprain Road and the Park

a) Suggested improvements

Look at widening the road to straighten horizontal and vertical curves.



5) Ramp from Route 9A to the NYS Thruway

a) Suggested improvements

Redesign to have two new ramps that would outlet unto 9a under current thruway bridge abutments in order to make this “urban” intersection.



Category C: No improvements needed until 2028



1) Route 9A and Lawrence Street

a) Suggested improvements

None



2) Jackson Avenue and St. Andrews Way

a) Suggested improvements

The installation of a traffic signal along with a realignment of the intersection to a typical T-intersection will eliminate the delays at this intersection.

KATHWOOD HOMES WON'T BE EYESORE MUCH LONGER

Many residents of Kathwood have expressed concern about the conditions of the unfinished homes. Our County Legislator, Tom Abinanti has also been in contact me to complain about the eyesores.

Please be advised that the town has received a performance bond for $52,000 that was required by the Planning prior to authorizing the issuance of a building permit to the developer. We anticipate that work will begin shortly. I have also asked town staff to press the developer to make the property presentable as soon as possible.

I thank you for your patience and apologize that this has been such an aggravating experience for your community. Fortunately, the conditions will improve soon!

Sunday, March 22nd is International World Water Day.
This day focuses attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. This year the theme for World Water Day is
"Shared Water - Shared Opportunities",
with a special focus on transboundary waters.http://www.unwater.org/worldwaterday/flashindex.html

In or out of a drought, every New Yorker can save hundreds of gallons of water a week by following these easy water conservation DO's & DON'Ts:

Bathroom
Do take short showers and save 5 to 7 gallons a minute.
Do fill the tub halfway and save 10 to 15 gallons.
Do install water-saving toilets, showerheads and faucet aerators. Place a plastic bottle filled with water in your toilet tank if you cant switch to a low-flow toilet.
Don't run the water while shaving, washing your hands or brushing your teeth. Faucets use 2 to 3 gallons a minute.
Don't use the toilet as a wastebasket, and don't flush it unnecessarily.
Everywhere
Do repair leaky faucets and turn taps off tightly. A slow drip wastes 15 to 20 gallons each day.
Don't open fire hydrants.
Kitchen & Laundry
Do run the dishwasher and washing machine only when full. Save even more by using the short cycle.
Do install faucet aerators.
Don't let the water run while washing dishes. Kitchen faucets use 2 to 3 gallons a minute. Filling a basin only takes 10 gallons to wash and rinse.
Don't run water to make it cold. Have it chilled in the refrigerator, ready to drink.
Outdoors
Do use a self-closing nozzle on your hose.
Don't water your sidewalk or driveway -- instead, sweep them clean.
Don't overwater your lawn or plants. Water before 9 a.m. or after 7 p.m.

WANTED: FURNITURE DONATIONS FOR LIBRARY, PLANNING, PARKS, NATURE CENTER, CONFERENCE ROOMS




The town is trying to save money by asking residents/businesses for furniture donations. A number of depts in the town need furniture. If your business or household is looking to replace furniture - this is what we need:
**Library--conference table and chairs for local history room ; office furniture and outdoor furniture;
**Public works--10 to 12 conference room chairs
**Conference rooms-- 12 conference room chairs
** Planning--office chairs
** Parks--desks
**Greenburgh Nature Center desks (one big wooden desk)
The town will provide donors with a letter indicating the donee's name, the date and location of the donation and a detailed description of the item, but not the value of the donated items. If the donor is taking a donation of $5000 or more it is up to the donor to get an appraisal for tax purposes.
A few years ago a similar e mail I sent out resulted in the library receiving beautiful outdoor furniture which was enjoyed by library patrons during the construction of the new library. The outdoor furniture was placed at Town Hall, overlooking the pond.
If you are interested in making a donation please e mail pfeiner@greenburghny.com.
Thanks for your help!

COMMUNITY COLLEGES ACROSS NATION ARE OFFERING FREE TUITION TO UNEMPLOYED--COLLEGE SHOUDL SEEK PRIVATE FOUNDATION OR FEDERAL FUNDING FOR THIS CONCEPT

Community Colleges across the nation are offering free college tuition to recent unemployed
Westchester Community College should try to obtain grants from private foundations or from federal government and offer the same...

Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner said that community colleges across the nation are offering free college tuition to residents who lost their jobs since 2008. The colleges are paying for expenses that are not covered by financial assistance.
Feiner is suggesting that Westchester Community College review the success of this initiative and seek grants from private foundations or from the federal government so the college can offer the recent unemployed this kind of job training.
Feiner said that during these difficult times it's important to help people update their skills or take courses that will enhance their chances of obtaining work. THis program helps people rebuild their lives.
The following article appeared in a local newspaper in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Feiner has spoken to Joseph Hankin, President of the Westchester Community College about the concept and will be contacting federal representatives and the Westchester Community College Foundation.
Feiner said that approximately 3-5 people a day have have contacting him seeking employment. It's obvious that more and more people are being laid off or are worried about unemployment. I have been encouraging residents to contact the personnel offices where they work to find out if there are job openings. I have been posting jobs on my facebook page and advising out of work residents of the jobs that I become aware of. Residents who are out of work who wish to be included on the e list advisories should e mail pfeiner@greenburghny.com. People who are aware of jobs should contact Feiner with the information.

ARTICLE
Hundreds of out-of-work residents are flocking to free-tuition programs at local community colleges.
More than 400 people have inquired about the Community College of Allegheny County's free tuition since the college announced its offer early last month. The program starts in March and is open only to county residents who have lost their jobs since January 2008, a CCAC spokesman said.

At least 170 people have contacted Westmoreland County Community College about a similar program announced earlier this month, a spokeswoman said. That program, which starts in May, is open to residents in Westmoreland and Fayette counties.

The schools will pay for any expenses that aren't covered by financial aid.

"I would've never thought about coming to community college, and now I will," said Mary Beth Andrasko, 47, of Scott. She's considering enrolling in the emergency medical technician or phlebotomy program at CCAC.

There are eight eligible degree programs at Westmoreland and five at CCAC. The courses range from business to nursing to information technology.

When Mary Beth Andrasko's job with US Airways took a nosedive, she seized the opportunity to have a career that would take flight.

She enrolled in the New Choices/New Options program at the Community College of Allegheny County.

"I'm going to spend the second half of my life doing what I really, really enjoy doing," said Andrasko, 47, of Scott, who was laid off last summer after 22 years with the airline's customer service and inventory departments. "Life is way too short to be doing something you don't want to be doing."

New Choices/New Options is a free, state-funded program for displaced workers, single parents and those interested in nontraditional careers. Students are taught basic computer, interviewing and interpersonal skills.

The program is at 24 colleges and universities across the state, according to Pennsylvania Women Work, a nonprofit organization that oversees the initiative. The state allocated about $2.5 million for the program this year, executive director Mary Ann Eisenreich said.

Interest in the program statewide has risen of late because of a rash of layoffs, Eisenreich said.

For instance, the program at CCAC is contracted with Pennsylvania Women Work to serve 100 people each year and already had signed up 60 before its midyear point, CCAC program director Sumana Misra-Zets said.

At Carlow University, 115 students have signed up compared to 123 last year, said Nieves Stiker, director of Carlow's program. Another 27 are on the waiting list for an April class.

"People are telling us, 'I need a job, I need a job, as soon as possible, whatever,' " said Nieves Stiker, director of Carlow's program.

In 2007-08, New Choices/New Options served 2,446 participants, Eisenreich said. About 41 percent found jobs, and 42 percent chose to get additional training, she said.

A typical participant is someone who has been out of work awhile or needs to update his or her skills. Older people who want to re-enter the work force also take advantage of the program, Misra-Zets said.

"We help them with self-confidence issues," she said. "You get self-awareness to go in a good direction."

Andrasko said she was able to conquer her fear of failure.

"Fear isn't just being afraid. It's also just not taking the step," she said. "Once I started rebuilding, I had a big fear of going back to school."

Karen Litzinger, a career services professional for 25 years and owner of Litzinger Career Consulting in Swissvale, said people often have to face something like a recession or layoff before they're spurred to action.

"I've done work with individuals, and it takes something that dramatic to say, 'I have been thinking about these things, and even though this may be negative, it's really an opportunity,' " she said.

Stiker said she has seen people "walking a little taller in just a few weeks" after enrolling the New Choices program.

"We've seen incredible stories," Misra-Zets said. "People just transform their lives."

CLIMATE ACTION TASK FORCE TO MAKE PRESENTATION ON MARCH 11

“GREENING GREENBURGH” FORGES AHEAD AS CLIMATE ACTION TASK FORCE PRESENTS TO TOWN BOARD MARCH 11, 2009

Live Cablecast on Channel #76 at 7:30 p.m. Highlights will broadcast on Channel #75 3/13 at 6:30p.m., 3/14 at 8:30 a.m., 3/15 at 6:30 p.m.

Greenburgh, N.Y. - On March 11 the Greenburgh Climate Action Task Force will make its first presentation to the Town Board. Chairman Frank Musantry will present Task Force goals and objectives, overall mission and introduce key members of the Task Force who will discuss the Greenburgh Climate Action Plan currently in development. Allegra Dengler, Energy Conservation Coordinator will offer background information on why the Task Force was formed and update the Board on new developments relative to federal funding for Greening Greenburgh.

NICE SURPRISE: MORE PEOPLE PAID SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES IN 2009 THAN IN 2008

The town of Greenburgh acts as a collector of taxes for school districts. We are required to pay the school taxes to the school districts whether we collect the taxes or not. The 2nd half of school taxes was due at the end of January. Many people speculated that the deep recession our nation is currently suffering from would impact school tax collections. Other communities around the nation are experiencing more foreclosures, failure of many people to pay their property taxes. I was pleasantly surprised to learn from Dave Dwinell, Receiver of Taxes,that the town actually collected a greater percentage of school tax bills owed in 2009 than we collected in 2008. Hat’s off to David Dwinell. His office has been working very hard following up on school tax bills owed.
One of the reasons why Standard & Poors upgraded the town’s bond rating to AAA last year (the highest rating a municipality can receive) and why Moody’s has also upgraded our bond ratings in previous years is because we have a high tax collection rate. This is very good news. The overall amount that was collected in 2009 was also $15,184,506 more than last year.
On March 1, 2008(last year) we collected 96.8% of all school taxes for the ten school districts in Greenburgh.
On March 1, 2009 (this year) we collected 97.3% of all school taxes for the ten school districts in Greenburgh.
THINK POSITIVE---THE ECONOMY WILL TURN AROUND.
PAUL FEINER
Greenburgh Town Supervisor
PS: I received more good news from our comptroller, Mike Kolesar. I am pleased to inform you that the Government Finance Officers Association has again awarded the Town of Greenburgh a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. This marks the 21st consecutive year that the Town’s Comprehensive Annual Financial report (“CAFR”) has been so recognized.

UNITED STATES CONGRESS EARMARKING $118,750 FOR IMPROVEMENTS AT E HARTSDALE AVE, ACCORDING TO CONGRESSWOMAN LOWEY...TOWN TO RECEIVE FUNDS FOR POLICE


The United States Congress will earmark $118,750 for improvements at E Hartsdale Ave as part of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, according to Congresswoman Nita Lowey, a member of the House Appropriations Committee.

The town will also receive $76,000 for equipment and training for the Greenburgh police department. Congresswoman Lowey successfully lobbied her colleagues to include funding for these initiatives in the Omnibus Appropriations Act.

The main business section of E Hartsdale Ave is currently experiencing an economic turnaround.The turnaround is a big success story. About two years ago almost half the stores were forced to close for weeks (some for months) because of flood damage after a storm. TODAY THE MAIN BUSINESS SECTION OF E HARTSDALE AVE (between the drug store and train station) IS 100% OCCUPIED OR RENTED. A clothing store (the first clothing store in at least two decades) opened up late last year. A new bank is opening soon. Two new restaurants will open soon (including an indian restaurant). Ironically, when the economy was good - E Hartsdale Ave had many vacancies. Today, the nation is experiencing a recession and the downtown area is 100% occupied or rented.

The funds that Congresswoman Lowey secured for our downtown E Hartsdale Ave will be put to good use - to enhance the avenue, to make it look more attractive. These enhancements will help the town in our continuing efforts to make the avenue a desirable place for businesss.

The Omnibus Appropriations Act contains the following federal investments in towns and villages in Westchester
• $167,000 for to revitalize the shoreline in the Village of Tarrytown
