Further Lane Estate Moves After Deep Discount – East Hampton Village

Dec 13, 2018 9:19 PM

The good news for the owner of 189 Further Lane in the Village of East Hampton is that his house has sold, and for the handsome price of $13.6 million. The not-so-good news is that when the property was first listed four years ago, the ask was $21.5 million. Ah, the vagaries of real estate.

The new owners, Laurie and Martin Scheinman, in addition to getting something of a bargain, are acquiring a shingle-style house on 3.2 acres a short stroll from Two Mile Hollow Beach. The 7,400-square-foot residence was completed in 2004. A previous house was torn down except for the basement footprint, which now contains a catering kitchen, laundry room, and a media room with fireplace. The exterior features a landscaped pool with summer kitchen, terraced Asian gardens, a hot tub grotto, and a tennis court—and one can see all from a rooftop deck. Back inside, there are five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and three half-baths. There is a south-facing screened porch to enjoy plenty of afternoon sunshine.

The seller, by the way, is Peter S. Wilson, a retired partner in the white-shoe law firm of Cravath, Swaine Moore.

Another recent village sale was 23 Maidstone Lane, sold to the MulfordMaidstone limited liability company for $5 million. It now owns a 1-acre property adjacent to Mulford Farm. The five-bedroom, 4.5-bath, one-level traditional has been renovated and refurbished including all new bathrooms, central air conditioning, furnishings, and accessories. There is a separate 500-square-foot guest-staff bed/bath, a big grassy yard, and an in-ground heated pool.

One more East Hampton sale to report, this one outside the village. Lee and Shara Levy have purchased 22 Owls Nest Lane for $3.3 million. The 7,350-square-foot residence has seven bedrooms and 7.5 baths and is on 1.16 acres. The newly constructed “showpiece” home is adjacent to a large nature reserve and in a private community of 13 homes sharing a tennis court.

Chemical Used In Nonstick Pans Linked To Making Your Penis Smaller

According to new research published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology Metabolism, the common class of chemicals Perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs), typically used in coating of nonstick cookware, can affect the size of your penis and the quality of your sperm.

New evidence found that young men who grew up in an area where drinking water was contaminated with the chemical, had a significantly smaller sized penis and experienced less mobile sperm compared to those who were surrounded by clean drinking water. 

Author Andrew Di Nisio and his colleagues conducted lab-based experiments to investigate whether two of the most common PFCs, PFOA and PFOS, would bind to the testosterone receptor and block its activation. 

RELATED: Is Your Penis Too Small?

“This study documents that PFCs have a substantial impact on human male health as they directly interfere with hormonal pathways potentially leading to male infertility,” write the authors.

“We found that increased levels of PFCs in plasma and seminal fluid positively correlate with circulating testosterone and with a reduction of semen quality, testicular volume, penile length, and AGD [anogenital distance – a sign of abnormal reproductive development].” 

“As the first report on water contamination of PFCs goes back to 1977, the magnitude of the problem is alarming as it affects an entire generation of young individuals, from 1978 onwards,” the researchers continue.

The team believe that removing the compound is difficult and the next step is figuring out how to safely remove PFCs from the blood. 

RELATED: Is It More Common To Be A ‘Grower’, Or A ‘Shower’?

The are four locations thought to be heavily polluted with PFCs: The Veneto region in Italy, the Dordrecht area in the Netherlands, the Shandong district in China and the Mid-Ohio Valley of West Virginia. 

“At least here in Italy, it is very difficult to know if a product contains these chemicals,” says Di Nisio, speaking IFLScience.

“In the case of a product where it is explicitly stated ‘PFOA-free’, I do not feel safe anyway, because PFOA is only one of hundreds of possible PFC compounds, and they can all be dangerous… therefore it is very hard to avoid any contact with any PFC.”

Quick and Easy Tips to Take Your Holidays from “Ho Hum” to Happy and Healthy

PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec 13, 2018–For many, the holiday season comes with family, friends and lots of food. As part of the Healthy for Life 20 by 20 initiative, to improve the health of Americans, Aramark (NYSE: ARMK) and the American Heart Association tapped into their experts to assemble a list of healthy tips and tricks to help navigate the holiday season, without sacrificing the flavor or fun of celebrating.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

Aramark and the American Heart Association have teamed up to empower and inspire individuals and families to make better food choices every day, including the holiday season. (Photo: Business Wire)

Aramark, the largest food service provider in the United States and one of the largest employers of registered dietitians in the world, and the American Heart Association, the leading voluntary health organization devoted to a world of longer, healthier lives, have teamed up to empower and inspire individuals and families to make better food choices every day, including the holiday season.

Whether it’s cooking for a crowd, or making smart kitchen swaps, Aramark and the American Heart Association will help you put together a winning holiday game plan.


Aramark chefs serve two billion meals a year, so they’re used to cooking for a crowd every day of the week. Whether for a cocktail party, weekend brunch or holiday dinner, these easy tips will make cooking for a crowd a lot less daunting.

Ask around. Before you get too far with your planning, note anyone who has a food preference, allergy, intolerance, or any other dietary needs or restrictions. While some guests may follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, plenty of people are thinking more plant-forward in general. Come up with a mix of meat, poultry, seafood, and plant-forward offerings so every guest has a selection of dishes to enjoy. It’s a good idea to have at least one meatless main dish for guests who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.Plan ahead. Think about what you can take care of in the days leading up to your event. Shopping is a no-brainer. Review all your recipes and check your pantry to compile one master shopping list before you even set foot in the grocery store. Again, buying in-season produce

will help you save money

, as will buying in bulk, which large parties often require anyway. Once home, take stock of your cookware and serving dishes, laying them out with sticky notes so you know which food will go in which dish.Welcome helping hands (big and small). If someone offers to help in the kitchen or contribute something, take them up on it!

Even kids can get in on the game

: Let them toss a salad, set the table, or handle washing the pots and pans. It’s one less thing for you to do as the host, and one more way to inspire their love of healthy home cooking.


There are plenty of healthy baking swaps to lighten up your favorite Holiday treats. Considering swapping out some of the items high in calories, sodium or saturated fat, for a healthier alternative.

One cup of unsweetened apple sauce can be swapped out for one cup of sugarOne cup of mashed bananas can be used to replace one cup of melted butter or oilGreek yogurt can be used to swap out for different ingredients such as sour cream, butter, oil and heavy cream, but the ratios can varyInstead of a fruit pie try making a

fruit crisp

for the holidays, it has fewer caloriesTry replacing cream in recipes with regular or low-fat milkUse herbs and spices, like rosemary and cloves, to flavor dishes, instead of salt or butter


You can eat well and be well this holiday season, with these tasty treats, party tricks and simple strategies from the experts at the American Heart Association.

Include lots of seasonal, colorful fruits and vegetables. Do you decorate for the holidays with a lot of color? Treat your plate the same way. Fruits and vegetables will add flavor, color and nutrients to holiday favorites. And they help you feel fuller longer so you can avoid the temptation to overeat.Navigate holiday parties like a boss. From the obligatory workplace parties to family get-togethers, your calendar may be bursting with opportunities to eat and drink outside of your regular routine. Make a plan that will help you resist plowing through the buffet table, like having a healthy snack beforehand.Sprinkle in opportunities to be active. Keep the inevitable indulgences in check by staying active. Enjoy some winter sports, for a change of pace, or schedule in a quick walk or workout before you head to the next party. Remember, every little bit helps you get closer to the

recommended amount of physical activity



These tipsfrom Aramark’s safety experts will keep safety top of mind when preparing a holiday feast.

Wash your hands. Hands must be washed AFTER using the restroom, coughing, sneezing and handling raw foods and garbage. Always wash your hands BEFORE starting to prepare food and in between tasks. Handwashing is critical to preparing safe food.Thaw frozen food properly. It is recommended that a refrigerator is used to thaw frozen food, so plan ahead. For every 5 pounds (2kg 270g) of large frozen food, allow 24 hours of refrigerator thawing time. Place the food in a tray or container deep enough to collect any draining fluids to prevent contamination of other foods in the refrigerator.Use proper cooking temperatures. Cook raw meat products to the minimum internal temperatures as stated on the product packaging. Insert a thermometer (digital is preferred) at several spots including the thickest part of the meat. Achieving the proper internal minimum cooking temperature is critical to preparing safe food.Store and reheat leftovers safely. Leftovers must be cooled to below 70°F (21°C) within 2 hours, and then to 41°F (5°C) or below within 4 hours. Large items should be broken down into smaller items by either physically breaking items apart or placing the item in multiple small shallow containers. Keep refrigerated leftovers for 3 days from initial cooking or freeze for longer storage and reheat leftover food once to 165°F (74°C) for 15 seconds.


It’s possible to eat healthy during the holidays without FOMO, or a lot of effort. Here are some favorite recipes from Aramark and the American Heart Association that will bring new flavors and twists on holiday favorites to your table.

KitchenAid® Celebrates Makers And Their "Marks"

It can be easy to spot those with a real passion for cooking and an appetite to learn. They know what’s in season and can recite their favorite recipes from memory. They have collections of cookbooks proudly displayed and farmer’s markets noted on their calendars. And they deconstruct dishes to figure out how to recreate them at home. These are the marks of a maker. 

“KitchenAid has long developed tools for the kitchens of those who savor the process just as much as the final dish. The ones whose love for the kitchen is part of who they are,” said Christina Hoskins, Senior Brand Manager for KitchenAid. “It’s this passionate group of people who inspire the design of KitchenAid appliances, big and small — each one crafted to provide them new ways to explore and experiment. We always want to support the creativity of those who inspire us with products designed for them and now we want to showcase the marks that make them who they are.”

The new global KitchenAid “Marks” campaign, launching today, was created by Digitas, the connected marketing agency. It’s a campaign that recognizes all of the marks, from the big to the small, and highlights key traits of makers:

  • Physical marks can’t be hidden — it’s the cooking-themed tattoo on their arm, the burns and blisters worn like badges of honor, earned by refining a recipe over and over. 
  • Behavioral marks highlight how makers operate a little differently — they read cookbooks like novels and find ways to grow basil on their balcony, farming on the 49th floor.
  • Emotional marks show off how cooking can be tied to mood — to makers, meals are inextricably linked to memories and cooking can be an act of love or self-care.
  • Kitchen marks are all about how makers own their domain — it’s the stand mixers that are always left on the counter, ingredients kept at arm’s distance, appliances carefully chosen, proudly displayed, well-cared for and ready for the next recipe.

A 60-second “Marks” anthem video highlights these marks as makers navigate the kitchen, baking bread at home, making stocks from scratch and showing off their skills—taking cake frosting and pancake flipping to new heights.

The global campaign also comprises unique short films with customized brand messages tailored to individual consumers and crafted specific to different platforms. The videos are sequenced to create personalized, engaging ad experiences spotlighting various marks that will appeal to specific types of makers.

No matter what mark a maker claims as their own, KitchenAid products are the common marks all passionate makers share. From the refrigerator with built-in marinating tray to the oven with handles designed for dough-covered hands, KitchenAid crafts its products with countless intuitive and useful features specifically for makers. Spurred by the invention of the iconic stand mixer nearly a century ago, KitchenAid now spans more than 25 product categories that together represent an entire kitchen suite of products that are designed to meet the maker’s needs.

“KitchenAid engineers everything with the maker in mind,” said Hoskins. “That careful consideration leads to features and details of our products that are intentionally designed to help you get the most out of everything you make.”

Through “Marks,” KitchenAid invites makers in kitchens around the world to share their unique marks on social media using #MarksOfMaking. Whether they bake, brew, blend or anything in between, KitchenAid helps unleash the full potential of makers.

“Marks” is a fully-integrated campaign including print, OLV, high-impact OLA, social, partnerships and paid search.

About KitchenAid

Since the introduction of its legendary stand mixer in 1919 and first dishwasher in 1949, KitchenAid has built on the legacy of these icons to create a complete line of products designed for those with a passion to make. Today, the KitchenAid® brand offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars.

Verizon concert bookings piling up for 2019 | Lifestyles

The new year is creeping up slowly and most of us have already set some resolutions: lose a couple pounds, call Mom and Dad more often, save more money, maybe even travel a bit more. But, what about enriching your life a little by going to some concerts?

The Verizon Center has already announced four shows for the 2019 year, and you don’t even have to travel to the Twin Cities to enjoy some of your favorite bands. Maybe a little country, a little hard rock and classic rock and even kid-friendly gigs.

Check out what they have so far:

Chris Janson

Pretend that it’s a hot summer day with a cold beer in hand in the middle of January at Chris Janson’s concert at the Verizon Center.

Janson, a platinum-selling country star, visits Mankato Jan. 18. Turn on any country radio station and there’s a good chance you’ll hear Janson’s top singles “Drunk Girl,” “Fix A Drink” and “Buy Me a Boat.”

He has two studio albums — “Buy Me a Boat” and “Everybody” — and both albums peaked in the Top Ten for US Country.

Tickets are $36.75 for general admission and are available for purchase now.


Wait, wasn’t Styx just here? They’re back! The group performed at the Vetter Stone Amphitheater September 2017 and will be back Feb. 10 at the Verizon Center Grand Hall.

The legendary rock band are known for their inescapable hits such as “Mr. Roboto,” “Come Sail Away,” “Lady,” “Renegade” and many others.

Eight of their 16 top singles have hit the top 10 since their formation in 1972.

Presently, the group continues to tour and averages more than 100 shows per year.

All tickets are reserved seats and will be available for purchase tomorrow at 10 a.m. — $105, $69.50, $59.50 and $39.50.


Breaking Benjamin performs with Underoath, Fight the Fury and Skillet in March at the Verizon Center.

Breaking Benjamin with guests, Skillet, Underoath and Fight the Fury

On March 29 you can head back to 2006 with hard-rock groups Breaking Benjamin, Skillet, Underoath and Fight the Fury.

Breaking Benjamin has released six studio albums. Their first, “Saturate,” came out in 2002. In 2006, the group released “Phobia,” which had their recognizable song “The Diary of Jane.”

Their latest album, “Ember,” has reached Number 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has also had number 1 singles “Red Cold River” and “Torn in Two.”

Skillet, a Christian hard rock group, will be releasing a new album in the summer of 2019. The group is well known for its 2009 hits “Hero,” “Awake and Alive” and “Monster.

Underoath, another hard rock band, has recently released their latest album “Erase Me.” The group hit the music scene in the early 2000s and hit its peak during the “screamo” era. Their top hits include “When the Sun Sleeps,” in 2002, “A Boy Brushed Red Living in Black and White” in 2004 and “Writing on the Walls” in 2006.

Fight the Fury is a project led by Skillet’s front man and bassist, John Cooper.

Tickets will be available starting tomorrow at 10 a.m. — $59.50 reserved seating and $45 for general admission.

■ Kidz Bop World Tour

The first show to be announced for the Vetter Stone Amphitheater is the world tour of Kidz Bop set for Aug. 24.

Kidz Bop began in 2001 featuring kids singing along popular tunes of the year. These recordings are clean and kid-friendly versions of the songs. They’ve covered songs from Modest Mouse, Britney Spears, Franz Ferdinand and Kelly Clarkson.

For this tour, the group will perform from its “Kidz Bop 34” album with songs from Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus and the Chainsmokers.

Tickets will be available tomorrow at 10 a.m. with reserved seating — $77, $59, $45, $35 and $25.

Main Street revival?

Owners of downtown Washougal businesses are optimistic that residents of the new Main Street Village — a 99-unit apartment complex — will spend some of their dollars near where they live.

Main Street Village is located on the 2300 block of Main Street, within walking distance of several locally owned, independent businesses, including Lulu’s Boutique, 3rd Heart Tattoo and Glo Beauty Lounge.

“You can eat, shop and exercise within a block (of where you live),” Lulu Suchinda, owner of Lulu’s, said.

Suchinda expects the amount of foot traffic to her women’s clothing and accessories shop will increase, particularly in the summer, because of the close proximity of her business to the apartments.

“If they drive to work, they’re going to want to stay close to home (on the weekends) to save time and support local businesses in the area,” she said of the future Main Street Village residents.

Darlynn Taylor, the manager of Glo Beauty Lounge, located on the 1800 block of Main Street, has visited Main Street Village, to promote the business that provides hair, nails and waxing services, along with microblading and lash extensions.

Taylor recently left coupons for new Glo clients in the complex’s lobby.

“The apartments should definitely bring more foot traffic to Main Street,” she said. “There will be more vibrancy downtown.”

Eryn Rowe, a tattoo artist at 3rd Heart Tattoo, also is looking forward to the addition of new residents to the area.

“It will be awesome, getting more people (downtown),” she said.

The complex could have a positive influence on Camas businesses, too.

Rene Dequa, assistant community manager of Main Street Village, recently moved from Eugene, Oregon. She said she has enjoyed eating huckleberry pancakes at OurBar, a farm-to-table restaurant in downtown Washougal, but also stopped into Camas Antiques in downtown Camas to buy home decor for the new model unit at the apartment complex.

People started moving into the complex in November. Each of the market-rate apartments has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, walk-in closet and single-car garage. Rents start at $1,495.

Some of the apartments have handicapped-accessible features, including lower countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms and wider doorways. So far, 10 of the 99 units are occupied. Some are still under construction.
