    I have been listening — against my will — to a lot of “new country” music over the last couple of weeks. And let me tell you, it’s not to my taste. My tastes are very broad when it comes to music, but 90 per cent of what I heard — from “Drunk on a plane” to “River bank” – I disliked. And it got me thinking, all these songs. It reminded me first of this video that I saw a while ago: “Why country music was so awful in 2013.” And then I got to thinking that this whole country music thing is an example of people…

    I left my campsite yesterday, just before it began to sprinkle. The rain drops were not a surprise; I woke at dawn to the rumbling of distant thunder.  A visiting young owl had dropped in on me Saturday morning and on her departure ripped a small hole in the fabric of my rain fly, making a pre-rain departure a nice convenience. An ominous sky, and a reminder that the weather doesn’t argue about gear. There remains further unpacking to do; I do the basics right away, and throw washables, and clothing into the washing machine first thing, and ensure that any everyday use items that I had…

    In an article from TIME magazine last year, Virginia Postrel writes about The Twisted Allure of Jihadi Glory. While it features the outcry over the Rolling Stone cover featuring Boston bomber Dzokhar Tsarnaev, it poses a bigger picture question on the power of glamourization. Postrel shares a quote from novelist Salman Rushdie, no stranger to controversy himself as the author of the 1988 novel, The Satanic Verses. Asked about what motivates suicide bombers, Rushdie’s answer is illuminating: Terror is glamour – not only, but also. [Terrorists] are influenced by the misdirected…

  • Is daily stress adding to weight gain?

    Liz
    18 Jul 2014 | 4:05 am
    According to a newly published online study, stress may be wreaking more than havoc on our bodies than previously reported. And, it’s quantifiable…at least with regard to weight gain. I have certainly covered the impact of daily stressors on the hormone cortisol (think: craving comfort food, higher insulin levels and a midsection fat dump). However, study findings demonstrate that if women experience one or more stressful events the day before eating a fat-laden meal, it may slow the metabolism in such a way that over time leads to a whopping 11 extra pounds a year!

    I’m spending some time with my mom as I write this Guyside column, and 89 from the perspective of nearly 48 has been making me think about lots of stuff around aging Here’s a few thoughts, in more or less random order. Technology It’s really going to be interesting to find out if I deal with technology as I age. I suspect I’m at the start of the generation that has found it relatively easy to adapt to technology. Perhaps it’s just me, but I enjoy tackling technology and understanding new devices. My mom is definitely not in that mindset. For her, managing the universal remote is…

I regularly use red beets in my diet – either chopped into salad or shredded in wraps and an essential ingredient to my daily veggie smoothies. I’ve found smoothies the easiest way to get the 5 minimum and ideal 9 vegetables every day. I go for any dark green or red veg, then add a little fruit from thin skinned berries. My research has led me towards raspberries, grapes and blueberries for fruits. The vegetables I use are spinach, avocado,…

You might be sitting in your doctor’s office, chatting with friends at lunch or talking to yourself while you have your first hot flash.

    Over 60 percent of divorces are initiated by women in their 40s, 50s or 60s — the menopause years — according to a recent survey conducted by AARP Magazine.

  • Can boron help reduce hot flushes?

    10 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Here’s what boron expert, Walter Last, has to say about supplementing with boron to treat and cure menopause…Research has now shown that boron supplementation in postmenopausal women doubles the blood level of the most active form of oestrogen, 17-beta oestradiol, to the level found in women on oestrogen replacement therapy. Equally, the blood levels of testosterone more than doubled. With HRT there is a higher risk of breast or endometrial cancer which is not known to happen with hormones produced by the body as with borax supplementation. Some women get premenstrual problems because…
