Brought to you by Griffin Hampson - Cartridge-Network - PRINTER, INK & TONER INSIDER -


CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonNew printers for both consumers and business have a cautionary warning. Both buy on price or perceived savings while rarely having knowledge of each printer’s associated cost-per page (CPP).

New printer models generally replace a previous model with similar capabilities. Rarely do new models possess startling new capabilities. Printers have a market life cycle of three to four years until replaced by another new model for that segment, just like cars. The new Ford Fairlane, replaces the previous Fairlane. However gasoline is gasoline.

If you use aftermarket factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges which provide 30% to 60% savings, there is another key factor involved with buying a new model printer.

New model printers use “new to the world” cartridge(s) only capable of working in a specific model or series. Each new model or series’ OEM cartridges are your only alternative for a year, or more, until aftermarket factories catch up with collected empty / recycled cartridges, reverse engineered chips, parts and the appropriate ink or toner formulation. So your cartridge cost and associated CPP will be full retail.

Furthermore, most printers ship with an “Introductory”, “Set Up” or “Starter” cartridge(s) with a fraction of the Standard or Low Yield cartridge(s)’ stated “page rating”, let alone the High Yield version with significantly higher page rating and as a consequence a much lower CPP.

How do we approach customers’ printer purchases? Know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by to learn how to get the most value for your money.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonDo “bargain” (cheap) printers save you money? Rarely. Consumers and businesses are sold printers and buy on price, without understanding a printer’s actual cost-per-page (CPP).

Office supply stores, warehouse clubs (limited selection / knowledge) and general merchandise big chain stores (limited selection / knowledge), have printers “on special” for $60 or $70 with $40, $50+ in savings from “regular pricing”. Buyer beware. The least expensive printers have higher CPP. You’ll spend more money for cartridges with a high CPP.

Fully costed CPP costs range as follows: inkjet from $0.05 - $0.30+, black laser from $0.01 to $0.05, color laser from $0.06 to $0.25.

Spending $30 or $40 more on a better inkjet model, or $100 for a laser printer now, saves hundreds (or thousands) of dollars over time, because CPP costs are significantly lower. There are several superior performing and low CPP inkjet printers currently available for about $100. Why save $40 or $50 for an inferior printer?

And remember if you’re interested in factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges, buying the newest printer, which replaced a virtually identical model, means only OEM cartridges are available for a year or more, so you can’t reduce further your CPP for quite a while, with aftermarket cartridges.

How we approach customers’ printer purchases: know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by our store to learn how to get the most value for your money.

WATERHOUSE RIDGE - Jessica SpenstMemory-care patients fare better when they are physically active, involved in activities that stimulate the mind, and experience positive social interactions that generate warm feelings.

According to the National Institute on Aging, there are many activities that memory-care patients can participate in — with help if needed.

The first thing to consider is the individual’s interests in life.

Does listening to, singing or playing music make him feel calm and happy? Does digging in a container garden make her feel more at home, productive and content?

Playing cards and games with others can keep the mind sharper and more focused, build positive social interactions, and is good fun — as long as the individual isn’t overly competitive!

Hobbies such as knitting and painting take concentration, keep hands busy and produce a tangible result.

Walking, swimming, chair aerobics, gentle yoga or dancing are all wonderful ways to move one’s body, generating endorphins to lessen pain and stress and boost the immune system.

These are just a few of the many activities that a memory-care patient may enjoy.

Here at Waterhouse Ridge, which opened in March, our staff is accustomed to making memory-care patients feel comfortable and cared for — and that includes activities.

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, an ideal opportunity to learn more about the many aspects of memory loss. For more information, visit the Alzheimer’s Association’s website, www.alz.org/

Meanwhile, make an appointment to take a free tour of our community. We are here to help.

IRINA MOGA DDS FAMILY & COSMETIC DENTISTRY - Dr. Irina MogaDental implants are titanium posts that are surgically positioned in the bone beneath your gums to replace lost teeth or support dentures. Because implants integrate with your bone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges attached to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth — an important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures, bridges and crowns placed over implants feel more natural.

For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures aren’t an appropriate option, due to sore spots, poor support, or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth, requiring extensive dental work for these teeth which may not already be necessary. With implants, no adjacent teeth need to be prepared to hold your replacement tooth in place.

To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone. Common conditions can prevent implants from healing properly, including diabetes and smoking. Regular check-ups and routine cleanings are necessary to ensure the long-term health of implants and restorations.

Our clinic offers a full range of dental clinic services, including cleanings and prevention, tooth whitening, crowns, bridges, emergency dentistry, dentures and partials, root canals, Opalescence whitening, Invisalign and more.

Make an appointment for an exam and consultation, so we can assess your dental concerns and offer solutions.

There’s nothing more attractive than a sparkling, beautiful smile!

BEAVERTON LODGE RETIREMENT RESIDENCE - Margaret NormanFor many seniors looking into retirement living, one of the first questions they ask is about whether the community will allow them to bring their pet.

Pets provide unconditional love and companionship and keep their masters busy with demands for food, play and regular walks outdoors.

Beaverton Lodge recognizes the importance of pets to our residents. We currently have about a dozen residents with pets and one set of resident managers with a dog.

We welcome most any dog who is a safe good neighbor, without a barking or nipping problem. We ask that dogs reside only on the first floor so their owners can take them outside easily and not use the elevators.

Cats stay in the apartments, so they can live on any floor as long as the owner cares for them properly and is able to keep the litter box clean and so on.

Pet birds can reside on any floor.

The owners of all pets must be able to take care of their needs and clean up after their pet. As with any pet, you would want to have it licensed and vaccinated.

When residents are ill or away from home, some have used a dog walker or at times had other residents look after their pet for a time.

Don’t hesitate to call and ask further questions about our pet-friendly policies. We can also arrange a tour so you can meet some other residents with pets.

FIT ACADEMY - Jarod CogswellThe fitness industry is exploding with an array of options and choosing the right facility can be confusing.

There are now so many studios competing for their share of the fitness market featuring specific disciplines such as yoga, barre, personal training, and boot camps.

And of course, the franchise gyms, low-priced chain facilities, and full-service clubs continue to offer traditional fitness and then some.

 

So which one should you choose? Some factors to consider:

 

Price

What can you afford? What type of value do you put on your personal health? Be realistic about your budget, but remember, you get what you pay for. Higher rates usually relate to better service and quality fitness experiences.

 

Your Health and Fitness Goals

Whether your goal is to lose weight, improve athletically, connect with new friends, or learn a new activity, choose the environment best suited for you. Do you like to exercise with other people? Do you prefer one-on-one training? Would you rather keep to yourself? The best facilities focus on building a motivating culture to help you reach your goals.

The Intangibles

Consistent exercise is challenging for most people. Unfortunately, the fitness industry has a less-than-stellar reputation when it comes to providing a clean and supportive environment.

This impacts the exercise experience, so be selective. Tour the facilities. Meet the staff and members. If you can envision happiness and being sincerely cared for, you probably have found the place for your fitness journey to continue or begin.

Jarod Cogswell, FIT AcademyDid you know that there are more people at the gym struggling with the same life challenges... body image, depression, low self-esteem and other negative energy vampires? And believe it or not, even the fitness fanatics that look physically amazing are trapped by self-destructive emotions.

The truth is that fitness benefits contain much more than simply the physical rewards. Exercise gives us confidence, a sense of self-worth, pride and the list of positives for a happy life are in the thousands.

After 20-plus years of doing what I can to help change lives through fitness, I can honestly tell you that it doesn't matter what you look like. What matters is how you feel.

I’ve experienced quite a few people coming into the gym setting with a cloud of darkness above them and I always say, "Let's put a smile on your face and the body will follow."

Recently I asked random FIT Academy members what life lessons consistent exercise has given them.

Answers included:

“Don’t give up before the ‘miracles’ happen”

“Comparison is the thief of joy”

“Uncomfortability brings me growth”

“Never cheat yourself of the gift you have been given”

“I CAN!”

The other benefit of fitness? Friends. Support. Love. Hanging around like-minded people with similar challenges is motivating and inspiring. Connect with the right people, get results physically, mentally and spiritually.

Start transforming your life today. Don't wait. You get one shot. Make it count.

Jessica Spenst, Waterhouse Ridge Memory Care Moving is stressful for anyone. But moving a person with memory loss to an assisted living facility, group home, or nursing home is a big change for both the patient and the caregiver.

Here at Waterhouse Ridge Memory Care, which opened in March, our staff is accustomed to making the transition easier for all concerned.

The National Institute on Aging notes that family members may feel a range of emotions, from a sense of loss to guilt and sadness. They may also may feel relieved.

It is OK to have all these feelings. A social worker may be able to help you plan for and adjust to moving day. It's important to have support during this difficult step.

Here are some things that may help:

- Know that the day can be very stressful.

- Talk to a social worker about your feelings about moving your loved one into a new place.

- Find out how to help the person with memory loss adjust to the new surroundings.

- Don't argue with the patient about why he or she needs to be there. Arguing leads to more frustration and anxiety.

- Get to know the staff before the person moves into a facility.

- Talk with the staff about ways to make the transition to the assisted living facility or nursing home go more smoothly.

Dr. Irina Moga, DDS, Dr. Moga Family & Cosmetic Dentistry - Dental INSIDER -


Dr. Irina Moga, Dr. Moga Family and Cosmetic DentistryQ: How does a dentist determine whether wisdom teeth should be extracted — especially if they are not causing discomfort?

A: Most wisdom teeth cause problems because there’s not enough room for them to come in properly. Wisdom teeth that come in at odd angles or only come in halfway are difficult to keep clean so they are prone to cavities and gum infection, which can also spread to neighboring teeth. These are usually the teeth we recommend removing. If they come in straight and the patient has room for them — and is able to clean them effectively — they don’t need to be removed. That is a small minority though.

Q: What should a patient expect from the procedure?

A: Wisdom tooth removal is typically done by an oral surgeon, though some generalists offer the service. In most cases, IV sedation is recommended both for the patient’s comfort and to facilitate the procedure. The surgery is usually performed in the oral surgeon’s office, not in a hospital, and usually takes 60-90 minutes. Sedated patients are required to have a ride home and are usually given pain medication, which often makes them sleepy.

Q: What should a patient expect after the procedure?

A: If a patient opts for IV sedation, which I recommend, they’ll likely not remember anything from the procedure.  The amount of down time and diet restrictions vary from patient to patient. Most patients feel better and can resume normal activities within 1-3 weeks.

Margaret Norman, Beaverton Lodge Retirement ResidenceHere is some food for thought on Senior Living Communities.

It seems that retirement can really be good for your health. People become more active, sleep much better and reduce time just sitting when they retire.

This is according to a new study that was published in March by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

“A major life change, like retirement, creates a great window of opportunity to make positive lifestyle changes,” said lead researcher Melody Ding, Ph.D, a senior research fellow at the University of Sydney School of Public Health.

“It’s a chance to get rid of bad routines and engineer new, healthier behaviors,” she added.

Ding and her colleagues studied the lifestyle behaviors (physical activity, diet, sedentary behavior, alcohol use and sleep patterns) of more than 25,000 older Australians.

“Our research revealed that retirement was associated with positive lifestyle changes,” she said.

Compared with people who were still working, retirees had increased physical activity levels, reduced sitting time, were less likely to smoke and had healthier sleep patterns.

Specifically, the data revealed that retirees:

· Increased physical activity by 93 minutes a week

· Decreased sedentary time by 67 minutes per day

· Increased sleep by 11 minutes per day

· 50 percent of female smokers stopped.

The differences were significant, even after adjusting for factors such as age, sex, urban/rural residence, marital status and education.

Brought to you by Griffin Hampson - Cartridge-Network - PRINTER, INK & TONER INSIDER -


CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonAny inkjet printer with four or more “tank” ink cartridges has a separate printhead. Cartridges lock into the printer’s carriage feeding ink to the printhead.

This differs from the two-cartridge system; a black and a tri-color cartridge, where the printhead is a physical component of each cartridge.

Guess what? Tank-style printheads clog up. Lots of use, little use or general use. They clog up.

So, all Brother, Epson, Canon and HP printers with four or more cartridges have a printhead which needs to be cleaned periodically.

At Cartridge Network’s store we ask customers purchasing tank-style cartridges if they clean their printer’s printheads. Maybe 15 percent say they do. Ten percent know about it but don’t and 75 percent look at us as if we’re nuts.

We go over a handout with short instructions for each type of printer and give it to them. Come in or call us for a copy.

One can clean the printhead directly from the printer or from one’s computer. A test page is the first step indicating if all the nozzles are printing correctly or clogged. If clogged, do a “deep clean.” If they are severely clogged, you may have to repeat the process many times.

If they become too clogged you will be looking for a new printer. Really? We recycle several printers daily which are old or have clogged printheads. We probably have a good new printer waiting for you.

Why do we go to these lengths explaining printhead clearing? Because so many people come in with print quality samples or their actual printers. Most are astonished by the process. So easy. Once they’re aware and clean periodically, everyone’s life is easier.

Yes, you will use a little ink, but doing so sure beats having a poor print when you are actually trying to print something.

As a full-service independent, non-franchise operation located in Raleigh Hills, on the Portland – Beaverton border, Cartridge Network sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock several dozen different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.” We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.
