Justa Center,Elder Homeless Day Center
Zulu Club,Scottsdale’s newest modern-chic dining and cocktail venue in Scottsdale Airpark is hosting Justa Center’s 2nd Annual Bachelor and Bachelorette Auction,Friday,August 15th from 6-10pm. Ten eligible,handsome bachelors and ten lovely bachelorettes will be walking the red carpet for homeless Arizona seniors to raise funding and awareness.
Seniors deserve a place to call home. The streets are not safe for the fastest-growing and most vulnerable segment of our homeless population,seniors 55+. Justa Center is the safety net that catches those older adults who find themselves homeless and too often slip through the cracks. They help “members” address the problems that have caused their homelessness,which include catastrophic medical issues,job loss,loss of a home or spouse,substance abuse,and/or mental health issues.
Justa Center is a 501 C 3 non-profit day resource center serving over 130 homeless seniors daily,30% of whom are veterans. Justa Center works to find safe and appropriate housing,provides basic healthcare and nutritional assistance,offers mental health and employment counseling,and helps locate and secure earned benefits (Social Security,AHCCCS,VA) to rebuild the lives of their members. Since opening its doors in 2006,7,000 homeless seniors have visited Justa Center and more than 2,250 have been moved into homes.
Justa Center is much more than a resource center for older adults,it is a place of hope,mentorship,empowerment,reassurance,advocacy,problem-solving,and restoration.
Tickets for the bachelore,bachelorette auction can be purchased online at www.justcenter.org by simply clicking on the “bachelor auction” link to make a $50 tax-deductible donation to reserve a seat. Ticket price includes entry into the event,2 drink tickets and gourmet appetizers. There will be a no host bar and dinner available for individual purchase.

(Scottsdale,AZ) Dean R. Silver,M.D. a leading cardiologist for 30+ years is developing a new state of the art age rejuvenation and chronic disease wellness center called,The Silver Institute for Life Extension.
The Institute will provide a blend of traditional and alternative modalities using the latest in international technologies with proven track records. The emphasis is based on patient centered,personalized genomic and toxic evaluation to optimize each person’s biochemical individuality.
Most of the diseases facing the U.S. are chronic,based on our aging population. Unfortunately there are no systems in place to meet this demand. Alzheimer’s,cancer,diabetes,heart disease and obesity are all chronic diseases of aging.
These diseases are present for years before they become clinically evident.
The Silver Institute for Life Extension Medicine will optimize each patient’s genetic expression to help them live a long,disease free life. More information can be seen here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etj0tdtkrZI “The aim is to remain mentally and physically vibrant through our entire life” says Dr. Silver who cured himself of lymphoma cancer and heart disease using many of the treatments he uses in his practice.
The Institute is dedicated to disease prevention,early detection and reversal of age related diseases. It will become the new model for healthcare in this century. Baby boomers have looked at the traditional medical paradigm and are not happy,it is costly and ineffective. Silver Institute will focus on peer reviewed worldwide modalities to slow the aging process. Each patient will receive a detailed written “plan for life”. All testing with interpretations,dietary,exercise,nutritional and medication needs will be presented in a patient friendly format.
A sampling of chronic complex diseases Dr Silver treats include:
cancer,autoimmune,heart disease,neurological disease,chronic fatigue,fibromyalgia,Lyme,HIV,fungus,pain,gastrointestinal,liver,pulmonary,hormonal imbalance,chemical sensitivities and detoxification.
Dr. Silver is a staff physician at the Scottsdale Healthcare Hospital System. For more information and educational videos visit www.deansilvermd.com or call 480/860.2030 to schedule an appointment. Their new location after June 16,is at 7420 East Pinnacle Peak Rd. Suite 126 Scottsdale,AZ 85255.

SCOTTSDALE,AZ – Howard Falco has just launched the release of his second book,Time in a Bottle:Mastering the Experience of Life (Tarcher/Penguin),now on sale. The critically acclaimed author of I AM:The Power of Discovering Who You Really Are (Tarcher/Penguin;2010),Falco takes an in depth look at embracing the process of personal creation. In straightforward accessible style,Falco inspires readers to stop regretting the past or fearing the future,guiding them to take control of their time and harness its power.
Having a limited notion of time is often the primary cause of suffering,stress,and disempowerment because we feel restricted. “The belief that time is running out or running short is working against us,” say Falco. “Time in a Bottle shows readers how truly limitless they are.”
Falco claims that your personal awareness,thought patterns,feelings,and actions impact when your dreams become a reality. Whether you desire greater abundance,better health,or more meaningful relationships,you have the power to actualize your intentions faster than you ever imagined possible.
Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer says,“Howard Falco has a special way of speaking to you that brings out things that are already inside you…This book has allowed me to see the endless possibilities in my career and more importantly in the love,happiness and harmony in my personal life.”
The book launch party for Time in A Bottle will be held this evening,Thursday,May 1,2014 at 7:00pm at Changing Hands Book Store in Tempe,AZ. Falco will also be presenting his book on Sunday,May 4,at The Science of Mind Spiritual Center in Burbank,CA at 11:30am and appearing again at Mystic Journey Bookstore in Venice,CA at 4:00pm.
It’s time to play ball! Join us for soccer,solar and sustainability on April 12 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the bi-continental Earth Day Soccer Classic and Earth Day Celebration featuring an all-day soccer tournament,solar cookout,live entertainment,hands-on activities,demonstrations and a chance to give back.
For those of you who have been following this story,you know that Green Living magazine is teaming up with Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability,Sun Devil Fitness and Tempe Sister Cities to bring you a soccer tournament that highlights the philanthropic work of Royal Philips and One World Futbol.
We hope all of you soccer enthusiasts have signed up to play that day (if you are reading this in early April,there is still time) and that you sustainability enthusiasts will be there as we celebrate renewable energy victories in Africa (specifically Ghana) and Arizona,Earth Day and pioneers in sustainable business.
We caught up with some of the players including a team of ASU MasterCard Foundation Scholars and a PhD student from Ghana. The ASU MasterCard Foundation Scholarship program awards students from Sub-Saharan Africa who come from the poorest communities and demonstrate exceptional leadership and academic talent. These students have served their communities and schools and have committed to return to Africa after attending ASU to further their positive impact.
One of these students,Ngoni Mugwisi from Zimbabwe,is particularly excited to play in the tournament,recalling his transformational experience playing street soccer as a young boy. “Playing soccer was an integral part of my upbringing. From a young age I was playing with my friends on the dusty streets of Mkoba,in my hometown,Gweru. That contributed a lot to my personal development. Soccer is a team sport that enhances communication and quick decision making while promoting friendly competition.”
Ngoni added,“Most kids in my country still play street soccer regularly…there isn’t much video gaming to talk about. However,although they do not lack in talent or passion,these kids do not have access to actual soccer balls. They usually resort to making balls out of plastic,paper or cloth that is piled together into a roughly spherical shape. Playing in the Earth Day Soccer Classic provides hope to change this situation since funds from the tournament can be used to provide African communities with long-term and durable soccer balls. There is no limit to the great soccer talent that can be discovered on African streets,and by playing in this tournament I feel that I am contributing to nurturing that talent.”

One World Futbol knows all too well the power that soccer can have on youth in Africa and of their struggle to find a decent ball with which to play. That is why their mission is to bring nearly indestructible balls to deserving youth. The Earth Day Soccer Classic will use One World Futbols in the tournament and will have a fundraising web page where you can purchase a ball for $40,with a second ball going to Africa,or you can just buy a ball to be sent to Africa for $25.
Ernest Nkansah-Dwamena,a PhD student from Ghana,echoed Ngoni’s enthusiasm,saying,“There is no greater excitement than showcasing my beloved country Ghana at the forefront of soccer and I just can’t be prouder than being a part of making this happen.” Ernest continued,“This is also an opportunity to reinforce ASU’s School of Sustainability goals of building a community with a sense of belonging,a community where ideas are created and shared together and a community that believes in the future.”
Mariama Salifu,one of the MasterCard Scholars,is from Ghana. The day before the Earth Day Soccer Classic in Tempe,Mariama’s brother Shafic Osman will be coordinating a soccer tournament with his soccer league,Top Ten Football Academy,in Accra,Ghana,on one of Royal Philips’ Community Light Centers fields.
Local soccer player,Nora Kuby,is thrilled to have a team playing in the tournament. “There is a poetic beauty in supporting clean energy as well as helping our friends in Ghana,all while playing the world’s favorite sport. Soccer brings people together,and as a participant in the tournament,I love knowing that not only am I making new friends and having a wonderful time myself,but that I am a part of something bigger and more important than the tournament itself.”
In addition to the soccer games at the event,we will also host a solar oven cookout,brought to us by the Community Christian Church and Arizona Interfaith Power &Light. Join us to taste the renewable goodness of a solar -cooked quesadilla,among other savory solar samples.
We will be collecting electronic waste,also known as e-waste,to help you with spring de-cluttering. So if it has a plug or battery and is sitting in your junk drawer,attic,garage,storage unit,and/or is obsolete or broken,bring it with you. We also will be offering document shredding.
Remember,this event is an all-day tournament. It is highly suggested you bring reusable water bottles (there will be water stations),sun protection,and a chair or blanket so you can relax and watch several games.
Concessions will be sold by Tempe Sister Cities with the goal to donate funds to Tempe’s Sister City,Timbuktu,Mali,a large African nation north of Ghana,which has gone through trying times in recent years. Local businesses and community groups will also be at the Earth Day Soccer Classic showing off their sustainability initiatives. Plans are underway to have additional entertainment such as African or hip-hop dancers and a community art project led by local environmental artist,Joan Baron.
The event kicks off at 8 a.m. and continues all day until the end of the championship game at 9 p.m. We look forward to seeing you,your friends and family there! Happy Earth Month!
And a great day of activities,entertainment and soccer is our GOAL!
