Randolph Harpist Shares Her Music with a New Generation
Brittans' 'Ceremony of Carols’ with the NJ Children’s' Chorus. The harp is one of her passions. Planseon’s other passion is education. She has an Early Childhood Education degree from William Paterson University (with a music minor) and has been a preschool teacher for 13 years. She’ll tell you that music means more to child development than tapping out rhythms. “Music is universal and there are even studies on the effects of pre-birth music on babies in the womb. Research shows us that music and movement stimulate the brains activity and the positive benefits on all areas of learning….. literature, language, physical, self-esteem, and social interaction last a life time,” she said. Recently, Planseon came across the Kindermuzik curriculum. It offered music and a time for parents and children to bond. Also, it seemed like a perfect match for her two passions. “While I love the ‘get up and dance’ music, literacy, instrument exploration, and more, I think what impresses me most, is the support for parents to educate them about the importance of what their child is learning in class……” said she shared. That includes “at home” materials which are available as part of the program. With her classes at the Ironia Free Methodist Church, Planseon is working with classes of children ages 2 -4 and 4 – 6 on Saturday mornings. The harp has found a home in the lessons. “Just today, I perused 'Over the Rainbow,' curriculum, which introduces children to Irish music with a tin whistle showing what a 'glissando' [a slide from one pitch to another] is. The children are learn-

By Elsie Walker hen many people think of the harp, they think of classical music played in a formal setting. A harp isn’t exactly something you’d imagine in a pre-school classroom. However, harpist Linda Planseon, of Randoph, would tell you differently. Knowing the value of music in learning, Planseon, who is also a pre-school teacher, has found a way to combine her passions. While you can still find her performing at a variety of events, you can also find her playing the harp for appreciative groups of pre-schoolers as part of the Kindermuzik classes at the Ironia Free Methodist Church. When she was a kid, Linda Planseon saw famed harpist Harpo Marx on TV and wouldn’t stop asking to study the harp. She got her wish and even studied under Rosalie Pratt, who’d been a student of Grandjany, one of the premiere harpists of our time. Planseon started out by playing at Little Carnagie when she was 13. Her love of the harp continued and after college she studied with Jane Weidensaul for a short time and much later with Merinda Adams. Over the years, Planseon has played in orchestras and at churches, restaurants, weddings, and other programs including Benjamin

ing 'high' and 'low' sounds by active listening and then translating the experience with their bodies shaking their hands high and low to a zippy jig. What better way to show a 'glissando' than to do it on a lap harp! Glissando's are the harp's specialty and children can see the motion of the hand go up and down,” said Planseon. Planseon has found a way to marry her passions and some pre-schoolers we’ll tell you that they are happy she did.

Then, the break though happened, they were chosen to open for a name band. The summer had been spent writing music and lyrics, and then laying down a debut album. It was so worth the work, now they will be playing their original music and promoting their new album, ‘In With the Old….Out with the New’ outside of the local circle. The genre is punk, alternative, pop, and reflects the day to day lives of being a young adult - walk through the relationship breakups, the relationship starts, be 17 on your way into the world, search to step onto your path.

Janice’s Blog
the slimmest laptop, it’s in the brand new model of that very thing we don’t really need but must have. But the more we distract ourselves with everything that’s outside of ourselves, the harder it is to see what’s inside. One of my favorite children’s books is Shel Silverstein’s “The Missing Piece” (and the sequel, “The Missing Piece Meets The Big O”). If you happen to be in the bookstore, pop on over to the children’s aisle and give it a read. Personally, I think it’s in the wrong section entirely, it should be in the adult “Self-Help” aisle. The idea is that a sweet, little pac-man shaped character goes looking for the missing piece that he thinks will make him whole, only to discover in the end, that there’s nothing really missing from his life after all. The search for what he thinks is missing was only a distraction from seeing the beauty of the fullness of his life. Oh, by the way, if you come to my house, you’ll find both of those books on my shelf, my most prized literary material! When you begin to learn to trust that you have everything you need, life just gets eas-

“The Missing Peace”

By Janice C. Molinari ometimes when a lesson comes, it hits you from all sides. It seems like recently, I’ve been hearing the same thing over and over. It comes in different voices trying to get me to pay attention. Maybe it’s time for me to really listen up and hear the message that’s being delivered. Here’s what it’s saying…”You already have everything you need for your own greatness.” That’s shocking. And at the same time, it feels like something I’ve always known deep down in my core. I’ve heard time and again “you do not GAIN something, you UNCOVER what has been there all along, what will always be there.” In a society that’s constantly delivering the message, “you NEED the latest and the greatest”, it is no wonder this message that is embedded in our very DNA, gets lost. We know deep down that we already possess everything we need. But somehow, we still get distracted by the message that what we’re looking for exists in something outside of ourselves. It’s in the latest iphone or

ier. We carry our greatness within us, we just need to remove the clutter and let it shine. We need to stop searching for the thing that we think will make us complete, we need to stop looking for our Missing “Peace” and realize that we are already whole and beautiful…all on our own.

iding a surge of research showing that learning a foreign language early in life improves math and reading skills and SAT scores later in life, Foreign Language program Lango Adventures has begun teaching Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and French to kids ages 6 month old 11 years in the Northwest NJ and sur-

rounding communities. Bringing Lango to this area is owneroperator and Chester NJ resident Agnes Beede. A mother of 6 Children who became unemployed after 9 years of working at Novartis Pharmaceuticals. Agnes started Lango a year ago after her daughter lost the Language program at her school, now her daughter is learning Spanish, French and Chinese after she decided to become entrepreneur. Convinced of the importance of learning new languages when traveling overseas, Agnes says that America falls far short when it comes to a key aspect of getting along in an increasingly global society. Joining forces with San Franciscobased Lango, Agnes has hired nativespeaking and certified teachers who use a proprietary curriculum, teaching classes in local schools, community centers and other facilities. Lango classes employ music, movement, playacting, games, reading and writing and art activities in a high-energy environment. “We strive to reach every child in the manner that best suits their learning style,” continues Aggie. “We believe that every child should learn another language, and that every child can learn another language. Our teachers work really hard to ensure that we make good on this belief.” Foreign language instruction among

young children has indeed gained wide acceptance in recent years as numerous studies have shown that learning languages early in life impacts a child in a variety of ways. In addition to being able to speak the language devoid of accents that teenagers and adults typically appropriate, children benefit through accelerated cognitive development, which has been shown to result in stronger achievement in other subject, including math and reading, and even in higher test scores. “When you’re learning a second language not long after learning your first, your brain isn’t so cluttered, and it’s not anchored to the sounds and patterns you already know,” says Aggie. “They say those little kids are like sponges, and it’s really true; I see it every day in our classes, as they soak it up readily and naturally. It’s a blast to watch happen.” Lango website www.lango4kids.com Phone 973-476-3137 - Email langoadventures@gmail.com

Thomas Edison and The Ghost Machine – Truth or Dare

Tell Them You Saw It In The Randolph News - October 2011 - Page 15

by Michele Guttenberger here is a long running legend that Thomas Edison thought it was possible that a machinecouldbeinventedforthepurposeof helping humans communicate with the dead. Whether Edison had actually worked on developing this machine is pure conjecture. If you ask those who give credence to paranormal sciences, they claim that Edison was serious in his claim and had something in development. If you ask an Edison historian the verdict is – they were thoughts he gave some theory to. However, he

left no records of any apparatus blueprints on application of these theories. In all the documents, notations and patent applications that have been archived and collected no one has found hardcopy evidence of its existence. Thomas Edison himself may be blamed on how these rumors got started. In a 1920 interview for Scientific American with B.C. Forbes (later founder of Forbes magazine), Edison was quoted saying: “...I am inclined to continued on page 18

Diapers Needed

Tell Them You Saw It In The Randolph News - October 2011 - Page 17 health problems for the infant, but a strain on the family that can lead to even more problems. The answer for many is the Diaper Bank, and Child and Family Resources in Mt. Arlington is hoping the community can help meet the need for diapers. According to statistics from Child and Family Resources, a healthy change of diapers costs $112 per month for children and $312 per month for adults. However, fulltime work at minimum wage grosses only about $1,160 per month; at $10/hour, it grosses about $1,600. Now think that the average rent for a one bedroom apartment is $1,045 per month, leaving only $115-$5 in disposable income for all other expenses, including taxes, food, transportation, clothes, and diapers. When you think about those who are unemployed and about homeless families, the picture is even grimmer. In some cases, the cost is not “short term”. Many disabled babies never outgrow the need for diapers, requiring them through adulthood. Child and Family Resources notes that for child care, school, and job training, many disabled children and adults require incontinence supplies. Cloth diapers are not a solution. For adults, they are not readily available For children, child care programs require disposable diapers for sanitary reasons. The result of a lack of diapers or diaper changes is not just a mess. A child who is left in the same dirty diaper risks everything from skin problems to hepatitis. Then there is the child’s reaction. The baby cries. Prolonged, non-stop crying can become unbearable for some parents and caregivers. Child and Family Resources notes that children under age three represent 28% of all abuse and neglect cases. The answer to the problem is disposable diapers for the Diaper Bank and that’s where Child and Family services needs the community’s help. There are many ways it can be done. Child and Family Resources offered these ideas: “Host a Diaper Drive at your workplace, congregation, or organization. We are in great need of sizes 4, 5 and 6 diapers. Collect unopened diapers at an upcoming party or family event. Donate Dollars for Diapers by making a check payable to Child and Family Resources or host a fundraising event for the Diaper Bank at Child and Family Resources.” Diapers are distributed through the following affiliated organizations: Children on the Green, Interfaith Council for Homeless Families, Little People’s Academy, the Morris County Office of Temporary Assistance, Jersey Battered Women’s Services, NORWESCAP Early Head Start Program, Parsippany Child Day Care Center, Catholic Charities Hope House, Homeless Solutions and Samaritan Inn Shelter. There are babies in need, and Child and Family Resources is hoping that the community will donate for those who can’t help themselves. For more on the Diaper Bank contact Claire Bianco at: Child & Family Resources 111 Howard Blvd., Ste.201 Mt.

by Elsie Walker his area and surrounding areas have been hit by high unemployment and problems associated with the recent flood conditions. While it is difficult enough for adults to try to keep their heads above water (so to speak), think about the effects on infants. Infants depend on a parent to provide necessities like food and diapers. However, when money is short or non-existent, parents may not have enough to buy diapers. Neither WIC, Medicare, nor food stamps cover diapers (except for hospice care). Parents of infants may resort to trying to stretch the diapers out, making the child go without a change or more.

continued from page 15 believe that our personality hereafter will be able to affect matter. If this reasoning be correct, then, if we can evolve an instrument so delicate as to be affected, moved, or manipulated...by our personality as it survives in the next life, such an instrument, when made available, ought to record something.” Edison attracted many people from the scientific community and that included those involved in the paranormal who wanted to engage his attention. One day a clairvoyant stranger had walked into his lab claiming he could read minds. Edison allowed the stranger to demonstrate his abilities. Edison’s assistant wrote some names on a slip of paper away from the stranger’s view. The stranger placed his hand on the assistant’s head and was able to call out every name on the paper. To confirm this was not a hoax, Edison asked if he could answer a question for him. The question he chose related to his storage battery. He wrote down – Is there was anything better than nickel-hydroxide? The stranger answered – “No. There is nothing better.” The mysterious man left without his calling card and never returned again. This incident gave Edison a more serious consideration to paranormal sciences and not to dismiss it as pure quackery. Edison met the famed medium Dr. Bert Reese. He thought Reese was a prodigy who had developed a new sense that all humans are capable of

developing. Confirmation of Edison interests in determining if there was life after death appeared in a special January 23, 1921 New York Times feature story by A.D. Rothman entitled: Mr. Edison’s “Life Units” Hundred Trillion in Human Body May Scatter After Death – Machine to Register Them. Edison goes into details about his life after death theories and the apparatus that could register it. However, in final closing argument he denies that his experimentation has spiritual motives. He tells his audience during this interview: “The grub when it dies splits open. A remarkable change occurs, a butterfly comes forth. I am investigating the butterfly existence of human life, but I have nothing to do with transmigration of souls. One is scientific; the other I know nothing of.” Was Edison’s New York Times interview a bit of the Wizard’s sensational chitchat or was it a media premiere to new mind bending discoveries to come. To this day it still remains a topic for debate. Although, you won’t find the Ghost Machine, there are many mind probing exhibits at the museum. Visit The Thomas Edison Museum.

Acupuncture, “What’s the Point?” Sticking to the Facts - Learn How Everyone Can Benefit!
In attempts to raise awareness about Acupuncture in my own community, I am sharing some of these Acupuncture Facts with you! What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine that requires the insertion of tiny filiform needles into various points on the body. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine originated in Ancient China thousands of years ago. The Ancient Chinese discovered that every living being has energy that flows through invisible meridians (energy lines) throughout the body. This energy, known as "Qi" is the motive life force. In healthy individuals the Qi flows smoothly through the channels/ meridians. Imbalance in the flow of Qi results in illness and/or disease. Think of a garden hose. Water flows smoothly through the hose as long as there are no kinks. When a kink occurs, the water builds up on one side of the kink preventing the water from flowing through. Now envision 14 garden hoses attached to one another and arranged within the body. Each hose is connected to an organ in the body. You can see how a kink in just one of the hoses can affect all the other hoses/organs throughout the body. The “kink” or blockage results in illness and/or disease. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is used to restore the smooth flow of Qi (i.e. “remove all the kinks”) and bring the body back to balance. If you are still following then you are probably wondering how the “kinks” originate in the first place. Our “Qi” or energy can become “kinked” or blocked from physical/emotional trauma, stress, poor lifestyle and eating habits, seasonal changes, overexertion, and exposure to the elements (wind, cold, dampness, heat). But have no fear…Acupuncture is here! How does Acupuncture Work? There are several theories regarding the Acupuncture mechanism. Acupuncture helps the body to do what it was meant to do- heal itself. Some of the most common theories include: - Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which relieve pain - Acupuncture stimulates the release of neurotransmitters (substances that that transmit nerve impulses to the brain -Acupuncture has a profound effect on the Autonomic Nervous System - Acupuncture stimulates circulation - Acupuncture enhances the body’s immune response - Acupuncture influences the electrical currents of the body The most common question of all… Does Acupuncture Hurt? Extremely fine needles are used in the treatment of Acupuncture, making the experience almost painless. Most patients don't even feel the needles being inserted. The Acupuncture needles used are as fine as a few hairs on your head. All of my patients find their Acupuncture treatments to be very relaxing. In fact, most people fall asleep during their treatment. What is a typical Acupuncture treatment like? Upon arrival the patient is asked to fill out a detailed health history questionnaire. Then, the acupuncturist will review the health history with the patient and go over the patient’s primary health concern and lifestyle. The acupuncturist will take the patient's pulses and look at his/her tongue (In Chinese medicine the tongue and pulses are representative of the various organ/meridian systems and help in the diagnostic process). After the interview, the practitioner will come up with a diagnosis and treatment plan for the patient. The treatment plan is specific to the individual- not their disease. Then, the needles will be inserted into various acupuncture points. The patient may feel a heaviness or tingling sensation around the needle insertion site. The needles are typically retained for 20-30 minutes. How many Acupuncture treatments are needed? The number of Acupuncture treatments needed is based on the severity and chronicity of the condition. However, most patients experience some relief after the very first treatment. What kinds of needles are used in an Acupuncture Treatment? Tiny filiform needles are used for Acupuncture treatment. All of the needles are disposable, pre-sterilized and prepackaged. After each treatment, the needles are thrown away and new needles are used every time. Are there any side effects of Acupuncture treatment? Most people do not experience any side effects from Acupuncture. Occasionally, minor bruising can occur at the needle site. What does Acupuncture treat? Acupuncture is effective in treating various disorders and symptoms including, but not limited to the following: Addiction, Anxiety, Arthritis, Tendonitis & Joint Pain, Asthma, Auto Injuries, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Common Cold & Influenza, Constipation, Degenerative Disk Disorders, Depression, Facial Rejuvenation, Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Indigestion, Gas, Bloating, Infertility, Insomnia, Menopause symptoms, Migraines, Morning Sickness, Musculoskeletal pain, Nausea, Orthopedic Conditions, Pain, PMS & Menstrual Irregularities, Reproductive Issues, Sports Injuries, Stress, Tendonitis, Smoking Cessation and Weight management. What does it take to become an Acupuncturist? In addition to obtaining a Bachelor’s degree, Acupuncturists are required to undergo 3 years of schooling at an accredited Acupuncture school. Acupuncture programs consist of various classes in the areas of Acupuncture and Biomedicine as well as a full year of a clinical internship to obtain the experience of treating patients. The National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine requires that Acupuncturists take 3 National Board Examinations to test proficiency and knowledge in the areas of Acupuncture, Theory and Biomedicine. The State of New Jersey requires an additional Licensing Board Examination to obtain licensure in New Jersey. Once licensed, Acupuncturists are required to take Continuing Education Courses every year. For more information on Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine call Kearstin R. Saya, L.Ac 908.876.3643

cupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day is observed annually on October 24. It is part of an effort designed to increase public awareness of the progress, promise, and benefits of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine. This Ancient Medicine has been practiced for thousands of years in China, but has only gained popularity in the U.S over the past 25 years. Although 36% of U.S adults have used complementary and alternative medicine, many healthcare consumers are still unaware of alternative healthcare options and their vast benefits. In fact, everyone can benefit from Acupuncture whether seeking help for an existing health issue or just to promote overall wellness and to help prevent future issues. Acupuncture is an evidence-based modality and research from the National Institute of Health proves that Acupuncture is effective for use in pain management, osteoarthritis, postoperative or chemotherapy-related nausea, addiction, stroke rehabilitation, infertility and asthma, among others. In addition, The World Health Organization declares Acupuncture’s efficacy in relieving anxiety, panic disorders, insomnia and forty-two other medical conditions.

aving friends and family over for the holidays doesn’t have to be difficult. With these tips and a savory recipe from the all new “Entertaining Chapter” of the latest edition of the “Betty Crocker Cookbook,” (Wiley, 2011), experienced and novice hosts can pull off a festive party with ease. Setting a Buffet Table Buffets are a great option when the gathering is less formal or you’re short on table space. • Buffets can be set up on a variety of surfaces, including a center island or counter, dining room table, sideboard or folding table. Allow ample room for people to move around the serving area. • Arrange buffet items starting with the main course and then the side dishes, salad, condiments, bread, flatware, with glasses and napkins last. • Make cutlery bundles for easier carrying. • If people will be standing to eat, skip paper plates and use dishes or plastic plates. If you must use paper, make sure they are heavy-duty. Avoid serving foods that require cutting. What to Serve

Easy, Elegant Ideas for Holiday Entertaining
Cheese plates are a great idea for an easy and elegant buffet. When selecting cheese, aim for variety – try mixing textures (soft, semisoft, hard and very hard) and flavors (mellow and sharp). Plan on at least 2 ounces of cheese per person. Here are some delicious cheese plate combinations: • Flavored cheddar, like chipotle, queso blanco and pepper Jack. Serve with grapes, pickled chiles, dates, grape tomatoes. • Gruyère, Havarti and blue or Gorgonzola. Serve with apple and pear slices, dried apricots, olive assortment. • Chèvre (goat cheese), Colby, cream cheese. Serve with chives, crackers, breads, chutney. Instead of serving a typical dip, try this scrumptious Smoked Salmon Cheesecake. It’s one of more than 1500 recipes featured in the 11th edition of the “Betty Crocker Cookbook.” In this edition you’ll find hundreds of new recipes, brand new features, all new photography and plenty of helpful tips and techniques.

Energy Saver Tips Saving Energy and Money at Home & Business
Pay less for your electricity We have all been inundated with phone calls, emails and junk mail to switch to a different energy provider. Is it worth it? YES. Thanks to the deregulation of energy, you can now shop for a better rate. Just like the phone company and cable television, NJ, CT and PA and many other states have deregulated there energy market . Already, 40% of electric customers in CT and PA have converted to a different electric supplier and NJ customers are following this trend. In all the states mentioned, the local utility is still responsible for maintaining the existing wires, pipes and poles and billing. These new energy suppliers can provide the electricity at a lower cost than the existing utilities such as PSE&G, JCPL and ACE. However, when switching, beware, as some of these suppliers offer promotional rates which increase over time, have hidden fees and their rate does not include sales tax. Just make sure that the rate you’re offered is the rate you’ll pay. Lastly some have penalties if you want to switch, so read the terms and conditions, shop wisely and start saving There are many ways to cut energy consumption and be smarter in the way we use it. By doing just a few of the things mentioned in this article you will be adding money to your pocket.

t used to be so simple. “Just Turn the Lights Off!” Now with technology and competition, it’s become a little more complex. According to the Energy Data Book, heating accounts for 31% of the average energy bill, followed by appliances and electronics at 27% and water heating at 12%. Saving energy can be divided into three areas. 1. Use less. 2. Be more efficient when you are using it. 3. Pay less for it. USING LESS. The average family can cut energy consumption by more then 10% simply by doing the basics. Turn off lights, use timers on night lights, and turn your thermostat down at night. William Curcio, Executive Vice President at Eastern Propane located in Oak Ridge, NJ recommends the following six simple energy saving tips which can help you conserve energy and reduce your family’s home heating bills. • CHANGE YOUR FURNACE FILTER MONTHLY. Clean filters help your heating system work more efficiently. • DIAL BACK YOUR THERMOSTAT. You can cut annual heating bills by as much as 10 percent per year by turning your thermostat back 10-15 percent for eight hours per day. • GET A TIMER. Investing in a furnace thermostat timer saves you money by lowering your home’s temperature when you’re not at home. • KEEP JACK FROST FROM SNEAKING IN Reduce the air leaks in your home by caulking, and weather stripping windows, doors and other openings. • SCHEDULE A TUNE UP. A properly working heating system is more efficient and will save you money. • KEEP YOUR VENTS UNOBSTRUCTED. Arrange furniture and draperies so they do not block radiators, vents or baseboard units. The US Department of Energy recommends switching to more efficient lighting! BE MORE EFFICIENT. Switching to more efficient lighting is one of the fastest ways to cut your energy bills. An average household dedicates 11% of its energy budget to lighting. Using the latest lighting technologies can reduce lighting energy use in your home by 50% to 75%. Be sure to buy ENERGY STAR qualified. They will save you about $30 or more in electricity costs over each bulb’s lifetime. The top energy users for appliances are the refrigerator and washers, and dryers. When you shop for a new appliance, look for the ENERGY STAR label. ENERGY STAR products usually exceed minimum federal standards by a substantial amount. The Energy Guide label estimates how much power is needed per year to run the appliance based on the yearly cost. Many appliances continue to draw a small amount of power when they are switched off. These “phantom” loads occur in most appliances that use electricity, such as VCRs, televisions, stereos, and computers. Many people believe that equipment lasts longer if it is never turned off, this is an incorrect perception. Unplugging the appliance or using a power strip and using the switch on the power strip to cut all power to the appliance can avoid these phantom loads.
