Saturday Fun: World Travel; Italy and the Cinque Terre

It’s been nearly two years now since we took a trip internationally. Far too long. It’s not in the making this summer—so far, anyway—so I thought I’d review the last trip, July 2010. It’s for myself to relive it a bit, but also for those readers who weren’t around at that time, perhaps to inspire……...

Synthesis: Guyenet, Colpo, Calories Count, Food Quality Matters, Macronutrient Ratios are Qualitative

This is actually my favorite sort of post to do; more so, even, than the rants here and there. I find it interesting to get two or more perspectives on some issue or controversy, then synthesize them into what I always hope will be a broader context of understanding and in particular, highly accessible to……...

JAMA: Effects of Dietary Composition on Energy Expenditure During Weight-Loss Maintenance

Well I’d intended to get up this morning and write a run of the mill rant about the stupid article accompanying an interview the other day on NPR Morning Edition with my buddy John Durant. Here’s the link to the thing, along with 7 minutes of audio that’s substantially better than the article. There’s now……...

Brief Update: The Book, Version 2.0

I almost wrote a post last evening just so I could write something for fun. But I was a bit sapped—which continues into today—so I ate a big bowl of my father-in-law’s caldo de res instead. Now, finally, the editors get it back for a couple days before it reverts to me. What’s Version 2.0?……...

Focus on Nutrients: Beef Liver Ideas and Alternatives

I’m big on beef liver. For one, it makes a lot of evolutionary sense in terms of using as much from a kill as possible. Second, if you learn to like it I think you may find yourself surprised at how regular doses (it is nature’s multi-vitamin) uplift your spirits. Nothing like topping up on……...

My Hunter-Gatherer Social Experiment With Facebook

I’ve long written on this blog along these lines: we evolved to account for the values and actions of about 30 other individuals. The corollary: at that level, each individual has a real potential to influence the collective action of the entire group, should it be important enough to undertake. And the general social corollary is……...

The Very Gnollish J. Stanton Interview on Everything

Spotted Hyena based creatures that, if it could talk to humans—as they non-magiacally can in The Noll Credo—would almost certainly find us less repulsive if…

Grilled Pork Steaks; Jorge Knott and Beatrice Nikoley…Anecdotes and Salutes
