  • Appalachian Vacation: Baseball and the Perfect Spring Beer

    first_imgMy kids are on Spring Break this week, and while most of their friends are off on world class vacations like Disney World or visiting Europe or New York City, we decided to take a different approach with our kids’ time off from school. We’re calling it our “Appalachian Vacation.” Think mountain hikes, swimming holes, cheesy water parks and baseball. Lots of baseball.I gave up on major league baseball a long time ago, right about the time in the late ‘90s when pro players went on strike because of a salary cap dispute. I get it; the insurance on a Ferrari is ridiculously expensive. But the strike left a bad taste in my mouth so I stopped following MLB for years. But now my son is playing little league for the first time and both my kids have developed a passion for the minor league team in our home town. So, baseball is back in my life in a big way.Luckily, New Belgium has created the perfect Spring baseball beer: Dayblazer Easygoing Ale, a blonde ale that’s so easy to drink it’s poised to replace PBR, Budweiser and the like. It’s just 4.8% and tastes like, well, baseball. It tastes like summer in the South: mowing the grass and floating the river. They even package it in massive 24-ounce cans. In the last week, Dayblazer has become the official beer of our Appalachian Vacation, pairing perfectly with boiled peanuts and mysterious rashes born from the water park. I’m thinking it’ll go just as well with mountain bike rides and swimming hole hikes. With any luck, Dayblazer will carry me all the way through baseball season into preseason football.last_img read more

  • Why being bullied is bad for your health

    first_imgStuff co.nz 22 May 2015Victims of childhood bullying are more likely to be overweight or obese as adults and have a higher risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses, according to a study by British psychiatrists.Researchers found that just over a quarter of women who were occasionally or frequently bullied as children were obese at age 45, compared to 19 per cent of those who had never been bullied.And both men and women who were bullied as children had higher levels of fat around their middle – a known risk factor for heart disease.“Bullying is bad for your physical health, whether you’re a man or a woman,” said Andrea Danese, who worked on the study at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College London.Louise Arseneault, who led the research, said its findings should remind teachers, parents and carers to think about the victims, not just worry about how to stop the bullies.Bullying is characterised by repeated hurtful actions by other children, against which the victims find it difficult to defend themselves, she told reporters. Unfortunately, bullying was “part of growing up for many children”, she said.“We tend to neglect the victims and their suffering,” she added. “(Yet) for some children, they will be marked for the rest of their lives.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/well-good/teach-me/68713662/why-being-bullied-is-bad-for-your-healthlast_img read more

  • 2005 determined to be warmest year in century

    first_imgLast year was the warmest in a century, nosing out 1998, a federal analysis concludes. Researchers calculated that 2005 produced the highest annual average surface temperature worldwide since instrument recordings began in the late 1800s, said James Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York. The result confirms a prediction the institute made in December. In a telephone interview, Hansen said the analysis estimated temperatures in the Arctic from nearby weather stations because no direct data was available. Because of that, “we couldn’t say with 100 percent certainty that it’s the warmest year, but I’m reasonably confident that it was,” Hansen said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card More important, he said, is that 2005 reached the warmth of 1998 without help of the “El Nio of the century” that pushed temperatures up in 1998. However, 2005 was cooler overall in Southern California because of heavy rains, said Stuart Seto, weather specialist for the National Weather Service in Oxnard. In Burbank, average temperatures were cooler than normal seven out of 12 months, including in August. “It looks like that whole year ended up below normal overall,” Seto said. “One of the things I noticed was it wasn’t the daytime highs that were hot, it was the overnight lows that were warm, because of the nighttime clouds.” Over the past 30 years, Earth has warmed a bit more than 1 degree in total, making it about the warmest it’s been in 10,000 years, Hansen said. He blamed a buildup of heat-trapping greenhouse gases. Jay Lawrimore of the federal government’s National Climatic Data Center said his own center’s current data suggest 2005 came in a close second to 1998, in part because of how the Arctic was factored in. But he said a forthcoming analysis “will likely show that 2005 is slightly warmer than 1998.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
