Page 14 March 3, 2016 EL SEGUNDO HERALD Dr. Harold Kraft from page 2 veterans diagnosed with PTSD, with an estimated 700,000 being afflicted since the Vietnam War and another 400,000 post 9-11. In the general population, it is estimated that 7 million civilians live with PTSD. Dr. Kraft’s clinical trial would work with 40 Wounded Warriors afflicted with PTSD in order to further investigate the effectiveness of this technology on this condition, which causes recurring nightmares, sleep depravation, hyper vigilance and irritability, emotional distress and depression, as well as 22 veteran suicides per day. “I will tell you that in my dream world, some company in El Segundo, in particular Boeing, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman, could fund this in a heartbeat with a donation,” Dr. Kraft said. “The study needs $400-$500K to get rolling. Those three companies should be ashamed of themselves if they don’t fund this study.” • Eagles from page 5 round wins over Nipomo and fifth seeded Covina the Eagles faced the task of taking on Duarte the fourth seeded team on the road. The game was in doubt until the final seconds but Duarte eked out a 38-36 win. The Falcons have one of the tallest front courts in the Southern Section. Forwards MacKenzie Barnes and Georgina Zamora both listed at 5’11 and 6’7 sophomore center Patricia Morris; the team averages 36 rebounds 24 per game. But the Lady Eagles played perhaps Hour Service their finest game inside.

A full gym that was loud from the start and twelve lead changes where neither team led by more than four points throughout. This was a game the Falcons thought would be an easy one but El Segundo’s heady play kept the game close throughout. The Falcons, who average 53 points per game, were held to their second lowest total point score all season long. With the teams tied after each of the first three quarters it came down to the final eight minutes. El Segundo missed several opportunities on offense to take leads and take control while the defensive end was doing their part to keep the game in check. another paper came out indicating that the absorption of lasers was much higher in the skull and in the brain; much higher than anyone expected,” Dr. Kraft said. “That meant that if you run the numbers, you discover that the study that had been done in Denver with the Trans-cranial Laser Therapy was at the very, very, very lowest amount that would theoretically be able to have an effect. So I thought what if we did the high-end? So they had phenomenal room to grow.” In a presentation made by Dr. Kraft, he states that the Pentagon spends $3.3 billion a year on PTSD treatments, which are described as modestly effective. The most common types of PTSD treatments are psychotherapy and antidepressants; however, psychotherapy requires 10-20 weeks of therapy, has a high dropout rate, and is not scalable due to the need for trained providers, according to Dr. Kraft’s presentation. Currently there are 1.1 million not only deserved this win but earned it in a highly physical and exciting game. With the victory the Eagles were rewarded with a game against fifth seeded Santa Paula in the CIF-SS quarter-finals. The Cardinals have a high scoring offense and are stingy at home where they have given up just seven goals all season and are undefeated. The result was an exciting painting contest that the Eagles lost 3-2. It was a game the Eagles held 1-0 and 2-1 leads but gave up the go ahead goal in the final ten minutes. With the Eagles on the offensive early on Grant Bemis took the opportunity to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead two minutes into the game. Santa Paula’s Gio Acosta, who scored two goals including the eventual game winner, evened the game ten minutes later. Gilbert Cortez’s goal gave the Eagles a 2-1 lead midway through the first half. The Cardinals’ Alex Torres tied the game before the half. In the second half both teams had their opportunities putting plenty of pressure on but Acosta’s goal in the 68th minute was the game decider. A heartbreaking defeat for the Eagles who had overcome so much throughout the year but a season to be proud of.

The members of the club are quite appreciative of Ms. Watkins. “Ms. Watkins allows us to play, and sometimes make obnoxious sounds, in her classroom on Mondays. It is definitely horrible to hear music when it is first being put together, but that is the sheer nature of music,” Lee said. “We are thankful to her for putting up with our racket and we are thankful to the surrounding teachers of that classroom. We are also extremely thankful for Ms. Rice who gives us more music to add to our repertoire and helping fix instruments all the time. In addition, she is always on the lookout for more opportunities for our club to perform.” I hope the entire El Segundo community will have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful handyman BILL’S running this new club by: Vice President, Jessica Martin; Co-Directors of Communications, Irene Lee and Allison Gridley; Treasurer, Kalysa Lo; and Secretary Christina Lam. They manage a club membership of 18 members; quiet a few members for a club just founded this year. Club members work to bring music to the community by, as Lee explains, “music, which is the only subject that involves someone’s emotions, can move someone; can change someone’s life, and helps with the development of the overall person. Music transcends all barriers of language, personal feelings, and situations.” The club has not only a motivated President, but also a motivated board of leaders. In speaking with the board, Jessica Martin, club Vice-President said “music is important because it adds more to our lives.” Furthermore, Kalysa Lo, club Treasurer, says “music is more than a sound. It is a story, powerful, with the capability to transport the listener back to a certain place, and to feel a certain emotion. Music is a journey, carrying the listeners from one world to another, telling the stories of the writer, and conveying emotions that cannot otherwise be felt.” This hard working team arranges opportunities for club members to give back to the community through their musical talents, and in turn they find joy in making someone’s day more enjoyable. Allison Gridley, Director of Communication, believes members find the music “allows the member to be creative and express themselves in an entertaining environment, while still maintaining a high level of discipline and rigor.” Through the community performances, A Musical Heart members have opportunities in the musical world of performance in a safe environment, where they integrate service experiences with their musical studies.

Film Review from page 4 Bill Henrichon Cell: 310-890-7531 Office: 310-542-3470 The Last Man on the Moon is a top notch documentary that feels like a perfect fit on the HBO or Showtime roster. It is humbling, poignant, hard-hitting, and emotionally charged, on top of being aesthetically rich and visually beautiful. Without giving too much away, I can say that the last shot will take your breath away as it did mine. The Last Man on the Moon is not all happy endings. This is a deeply personal film for Cernan this day, as his friends and family admit that “retirement” is not in his vocabulary. This film and its message is so important and will leave the viewer feeling inspired from both Gene’s words and actions. Lightheartedly joking that he can’t live forever, he wants to share his knowledge and experience now because he feels an obligation to inform the younger generations about man’s potential and inspire hope for the future. “I walked on the moon,” he says at the end of the film, “What can’t you do?” The Last Man on the Moon is playing at Laemmle’s Monica Fourplex. • Billshomeandaptmain@yahoo.com CA ST LIS# 786081 / Licensed & Insured 2011 2012 2013 Serving the South Bay for 25 years FREE ESTIMATES plumbing Phone/Text 310.738.7094 23 YEARS EXPERIENCE Sewer Video • Hydrojetting • Bonded • Insured CA LIC. #980971 handyman TOUCHSTONE PAINTING • PLASTERING HANDYMAN Reasonably Priced – Referrals Upon Request 310-517-9677 30 Year Business and Resident in the South Bay flooring KIRK FLOORING (310) 322-6099 Fax (310) 322-6899 lic# 648106 333 Indiana Street, El Segundo sales@kirkflooring.com YOUR AD HERE carpet vinyl wood Email to reserve your space class@heraldpublications.com gardening EL SEGUNDO GARDENER Licensed/Bonded which is why it took until now, 40 years since his return to earth, to share his story.
