9:06 am
because you work in a casino, 84 in vegas, you're in a band. but it's really stable, too. i mean, most musicians in the industry could be really well-known band and something happens. they're looking for work hustling again, and 16 1/2 years, i guess. >> you could be touring throughout the country and come back to blue man. >> what does the winner get? >> they get a new set drums, the best drums made. backstage tour experience with the blue man group, tickets to the show. >> and the title of las vegas drum off winner. >> which that is -- just the bragging to have for the next year plus would be very nice. >> the final group is going on go before a panel of judges. who is judging?

9:13 am
>> and here with helpful tips is mary nara. with healthcare partners medical group. good morning, mary. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> you're so well many come. why is it so important to educate people about falls? >> well, falls are really frighteningly common. i myself fell about a week ago. >> oh, my goodness. >> all the scrapes and bruises only. but the incident of fall is really high. in the next year one out of three a result thes over 65 will fall. in the course of t to 30% will have an injury, a broken bone or fracture or head trauma. >> i mean, luckily at our age we take the fall, we can usually shake it off. for senior community falls are very serious issue. >> absolutely. older americans are really at more risk for serious injury because of multiple reasons. first there is a ton of medical conditions that predispose older adults to fall. nerve damage, wear and tear on bones and joints, and also there
9:14 am
osteoporosis in americans over 50, so 10 million people over 50. it's thinning of the bone, makes the bones more porous and susceptible to fracture. >> is there anything people can do to prevent osteoporosis or just keep their bones healthy? >> probably the most important thing is to do regular physical activity. just even something as simple as walking, that's weight bearing, to keep muscles strong and bones healthy. >> isn't it interesting, but the pressure of exercise and walki >> no question. >> i think it would be something you ate but it's not. >> there is also some things in the diet. calcium and vitamin d are really important. dairy is okay, unless you have a lactose intolerance. vitamin d is more challenging but equally important. so you can tested for vitamin d levels, and a supplement can be
9:15 am
low. >> when it comes to obviously senior seeing your loved ones you want to help prevent falls. how do you do that? retrofit the house? >> there is lots of thing. my top two are environmental things. so clearing a pathway where you're walking frequently. having good lighting so you can see where you're going even if you're getting up in the middle of the night. avoiding throw rugs or things you can trip over. avoid open toe shoes. if you have a walker or from your medical provider you should use it. and the second big one is medications. there is a ton of medications that contribute to falls by cause i dizziness, from high blood pressure medicine to over the counter allergy medicine to sleep and pain medication, so it's super important your medical provider knows all the medication you're taking. >> so you have something called the model of care. >> total care model. >> you know all about it. >> well i am a healthcare
9:16 am
>> you tell us about it then. >> let me tell you something. here is why i like it. the fact that it's all under one umbrella. if you go to one healthcare partner and you go to a specialist you're all on the same game plan. am i right? >> the total care model is focuses on screening and prevention. patient education and coordinating care for patients between specialists. and the primary care provider in between the hospital and the primary care provider. we have a lot of teammates involvedn managers, social workers, lots of behind the scene to coordinate that care. >> and here is the thing that i hate. when i go to a specialist or something that's not my main doctor, you go to a place and you have to fill out 15 pages of paperwork so you can tell them who you are. then they have to wait for my doctor the fax something to their office. if you go to healthcare partners it's all in the same thing. you have electronic medical records that goes throughout the entire network. >> yes.
9:17 am
within healthcare partners and we share electronic medical system so it's available to everyone. >> that's awesome. well, for somebody like me, shawn knows a lot about it, but for myself and other people who might be interested, how can we learn more about healthcare partners? >> they will be hosting multiple events around the city, and there is a website that people can go to to learn more about those events and find the nearest one to them. >> awesome. very cool. and open soon. >> october. >> going to be a busy time. >> yes, always is. >> a lot of questions, and i know people can get answers through the website and their doctors. >> absolutely. >> great having you you. >> thank you mary. >> thank you very much. >> if you want to protect your loved ones from dangerous falls and want more information on healthcare partners medical group visit the website on your screen. you can follow them on facebook and twitter, as well. like and follow us. we need the numbers on twitter.

as the days get shorter and the nights get cooler we know fall is just our friend danny lipford joins us to share the fall list from his four seasons of home ownership. hey, danny. >> glad to be with you. >> all right. thank you. let's jump into it. what are some projects you have on your fall to-do list? >> well, there are some things on our four seasons list to do during this time of the year. and, of course, it involves a lot to do with weather icing
9:21 am
cold weather but we like to mention a few fun things like making sure you paint at least one room. and everybody when they're doing painting they want to get the professional results. you can see a very professionally done job here in this room, two tone walls, nice, clean lines, to tell you the truth this is not a room at all. this is our studio, which gives me an opportunity to -- fooled you -- to show you before and after. and all those nice, c there. were not done by a professional painter. it was done using frog tape. both sides of your chair rail, around your window, and the trickiest thing that people have when they're painting is trying to get the nice line along the crown molding. you can handle all of that andelbradt up looking like a professional. >> i love it. and nice, clean coat of paint.
9:22 am
>> it certainly does, i have inexpensive way to put a pop the room and using the new edgy colors, that's nice, as well. >> can we move on? i heard you can help us save a little money, which is always good, with our utility bills. what kind of changes can we make when the temperatures drop? >> think about the envelope of your home. if you can seal the envelope of your home you're keeping the cold air out and the warm air in. it's just pretty good common sense to go that the folks at duct brand have a complete list and array of weatherization products, including this. there is plastic on this window. it's a window roll on kit that is just invisible. if we didn't have the tape around here you wouldn't know it was there. it's very easy to install by cleaning the window frame, then you put the double stick tape around the perimeter. you put the pretaped piece of plastic on, cut the excess then
9:23 am
basically are shrink wrapping this to create the air pocket that will prevent the cold air from getting in. you can do the same thing around your doors by replacing any weather stripping. and this is a really simple, cool thing here. it's called a double draft seal. you basically need nothing to install this other than scissors, cutting the foam tubes, installing it. and that way you can really seal up that doorway. don't forget about the outside and call canning all around your trim and tighten up the home and keep that warm air inside. >> i love this. you're inspiring me to do it myself. their some projects i heard you feel that are best left to the pros. what are those? >> well, a lot of times when you're doing things to do with -- which is another good thing, heating and cooling system, servicing it, that's better left for the pros. a lot of people think anything in the attic, not a fun place to hang out, if you want to really
9:24 am
improvement dollar, put more insulation in your attic. most houses over 53% of the houses in the united states do not have sufficient attic insulation and it can be very do it yourself friendly if you use a mineral or stone wool insulation like this one. you can see i'm touching it with my bare hands. it won't itch at all, and it's easy to cut. very, very easy. and if your attic isik in the country, like our studio attic, you'll see that we get in your attic you can see your ceiling joist. if you can see them you don't have enough insulation. adding another layer makes it to easy to add that insulation that will help you summer or winter. i've been in las vegas during the summer, gets a little warm out there. >> oh, yes, it does. i love it. i'm going to crawl up in my

9:29 am
laser off unwanted pounds? the new phaze laser med spa has the latest called sculpsure. and here to tell us all about it is sarah lopez, vice president and company own e of phaze laser med spa. good morning. this is exciting because today is your opening at the immediate spa. >> it is. today is the first day we're accepting clients. we're opening the doors. we encourage everybody to visit us. we have great and exciting offer. >> you really do. sculpsure is going to be probably one of your most popular services, am i right? >> that is very popular one. we've had so many calls during the recent weeks. people that are just interested, because we all have those areas of stub bosh fat that we can't get rid of with diet and exercise. it's the only one that is laser based.
9:30 am
best and how it works. here we see what it looks like. you have two devices that just rest on the -- this is an abdomen. >> right. >> i would assume. we're talking about a 25 minute treatment or so? >> yes. and that is really -- that's really where it's at. it's 25 minutes. here on this illustration it shows two applicators but we can treat four different -- we have four different applicators and we can treat any area multiple times during session. it's very convenient because you can do it during your lunch break. you can go right back to work. there is absolutely no down um too. you come and have a little me time and get the fat cells destroyed. >> two of the words you said are noninvasive and fda approved, right? >> yes. >> these are important things. how does this work? where does the fat go? >> well, it's really an examination. what happens is we apply the applicators. the laser penetrates through the skin.
9:31 am
and so that is the fat that you can pinch, you know, the fat -- it's not the fat that is right in between the muscle. it goes in there. it destroys it with the laser. and then over a period of time, your body naturally releases and gets rid of that permanently through the lymphatic system. >> it will take a few weeks for you to see the results, right? >> yes. as soon as you're done with your treatment it's going to take a couple weeks for it to completely get out of your body. it >> it's truly amazing. it's kind of a shortcut, am i right? >> it is, but we also encourage our clients our patients to combine out with diet and exercise. we promote healthy living. this is not a substitution for ray balanced diet and regular exercise at all. but it's to target the areas that we just can't get rid of with just that alone. >> i would think that would be
9:32 am
have something like this done and then just gain the weight back. >> right. >> it's not good on your body, not good for your skin to stretch and things like that. and you and i were talking before the show, exercise has such a mental benefit, too. >> yes. >> right? >> it sure does. we want to look good on the outside, but we want to be healthy, as well. >> you want to feel good. >> we want to feel good. >> that's right. oh, my gosh. so you have been getting great reactions from this, though. tell me about some of that you've treated. i know there has been some mothers who had a hard time getting rid of abdomen fat. >> i've done it, as well. i tried it and did it on my lower abs. that's where i have the most fat there, you know. and so i tried it. it was really simple. like i said, 25 minutes, absolutely no down time. i went to the gym, you know. it was pain-free. so it was very convenient. this is really for the individual that doesn't want incisions, that doesn't want to go under the knife, and doesn't
9:33 am
and it's also for somebody that wants to target that area of fat, that they simply cannot get rid of, whether it's your love handles, i mean, anywhere you can think of we can probably fit the applicators on there. >> well, i have to say you do not look like someone who needs this treatment. but it's neat that you tried it because you can say firsthand, you know what i mean, what it's like. congratulations on the opening of the spa today. >> thank you. >> yes. are you and male clients coming through your doors? >> definitely. actually if you go on instagram you'll see one of our models, he went in there and again, he's very athletic, very healthy, and he lives a healthy lifestyle, but he has that little spot at the bottom that you can't get rid of with diet and exercise. he came over, tried it, he called me two weeks later. he said oh, my, gosh, i love it. can i go back and do my love
9:34 am
we treat males and females. >> it's amazing. and i wonder once you have the treatment if you start to get other areas you want treated. >> you fall in love with it because you see the results. it's effective. and you come back and find other areas you want to work oranges one of the thicks i like about you guys you're allowing people to come in and talk to you about it and get a condition you will tags, am i right? >> definitely. our consultations are complementary. let us discuss our problem areas, and we create a treatment plan. you tell us what your areas are and we tell you how we can help you. >> people may need more than one treatment? >> they do. typically it's anywhere between one to three treatments. and it just depends how much fat you have in that area that you want to get rid of. >> this is very interesting stuff. >> sure is. >> it's very interesting where technology led us. you have a special for us today. >> i do. i can't stress the importance of
