Just A Handful Of Nuts May Help Keep Us From Packing On The Pounds As We Age : The Salt : NPR

U.S. adults put on about a pound a year on average. But people who had a regular nut-snacking habit put on less weight and had a lower risk of becoming obese over time, a new study finds. R.Tsubin/Getty Images hide caption U.S. adults put on about a pound a year on average. But people who had a regular nut-snacking habit put on less weight and had a lower risk of becoming obese over time, a new study finds. Eating a handful of almonds, walnuts, peanuts or any type of nut on a regular basis may help prevent excessive weight gain and even lower the risk of obesity, new research suggests. It may be that substituting healthy nuts for unhealthy snacks is a simple strategy to ward off the gradual weight gain that often accompanies aging, according to the researchers. Nuts also help us feel full longer, which might offset cravings for junk food. Researchers looked at the diet and weight of more than 280,000 adults taking part in three long-term research studies. Over more than 20 years of monitoring, participants were asked every four years about their weight and, among other things, how often, over the preceding year, they had eaten a serving (about one ounce) of nuts. On average, U....

PANCHKULA: As campaigning for the upcoming Assembly elections ended at 5 pm today, candidates made last-ditch efforts to woo voters. On a lazy Saturday afternoon, amid hooting and hollering, when some 190 pooches make way to a ground to show their beauty and behaviour, as a dog-lover, your weekend rocks! By offering 50 per cent subsidy on paddy transplanters, the state government is set to give boost to mechanisation in paddy transplantation in the upcoming season (June and July). According to statistics compiled by the Agriculture Department, about 12 lakh labourers from outside the state come every year in June and July to transplant paddy. However, over the last few years there is steep reduction in the number of labourers coming to the state. Therefore, farmers get stressed to transplant paddy in small window of 40 days.

Similarly, fully mechanised riding type 6-8 row machine costs about Rs 10-15 lakh and can transplant paddy on about 10-12 acres daily.

9 Alternatives to Single-Use Plastic Straws | Earth911.com 9 Alternatives to Single-Use Plastic Straws

Single-use plastic straws are an environmental problem that few people think about. But consider the popularity of drinks like fountain sodas, iced lattes and bubble teas; all the accompanying plastic straws add up to a lot of plastic waste. According to Strawless Ocean, we use 500 million straws every day. Those straws are difficult to recycle and add to the plastic catastrophe happening in our oceans.

The folks at Martha Stewart pledged to stop using single-use plastic straws for a month. The Last Plastic Straw maintains a list of businesses that have taken their Last Plastic Straw Challenge and eliminated single-use plastic straws from their establishments so you can support them with your patronage.

September 27, 2019 — For all their many virtues, wind and solar power have one major flaw: at some point, even in the windiest, sunniest parts of the planet the wind stops blowing and the energy-giving rays of the sun disappear over the horizon. So as the world works to decarbonize its energy supply by reducing its reliance on coal, natural gas and petroleum and increasing its use of these variable renewable sources of electricity for the grid, one technology in particular is experiencing a renaissance: the stationa...

“Ain’t no doubt that the river is the Boss; she does what she wants, goes where

“Ain’t no doubt that the river is the Boss; she does what she wants, goes where she wants, and there ain’t no bargaining with her.” Those words were spoken to me by an old river man, years ago after a scary incident I had on the White River at nearby Waverly. Rivers have always captivated people. Books such as “A River Runs Through It,” have become classics, as are songs such as “Old Man River,” “Moon River,” “Proud Mary” and even the Indiana state song, “On the Banks of the Wabash. So today let’s all kayak down the Wabash River, putting in at the Department of Natural Resources launch site just west of Delphi. We will paddle 9 1/2 miles down river to our takeout point, the confluence of the Tippecanoe and the Wabash Rivers. Before we head out, let’s review a little Wabash River history. As all rivers do, it starts as a small stream, and in the case of the Wabash it starts as a tiny stream in Ohio. Widening and deepening into the heartland of Indiana, it travels southwesterly for 475 miles, draining over 60 counties, and finally merges with the Ohio River. Considered our state river, the Wabash is also the longest free-flowing river east of the Mississippi. No different than any...

As the debate continues on superannuation policy and ideas like allowing low income earners to opt

As the debate continues on superannuation policy and ideas like allowing low income earners to opt out of compulsory payments, Open Drum asked readers how they envisioned their retirement. For Tara Rymer, the outlook is a tad bleak. When I was in my early 20s I would often think about retirement as I watched caravans pass on the highway; stickers such as “Adventure before Dementia” and “Grey Nomads” plastered on the rear windows. I imagined myself and my partner Steve doing the same, finally travelling once free from the demands of work and raising young children, cherishing a time when it would be just he and I once again. Travelling across country and cruises will likely be an unachieved dream. With the pittance that is the pension and my measly amount of superannuation, I expect the cost of living will drain the finances fairly quickly, let alone leave any funds for travel. The reality of retirement and aging is daunting. Will I be able to afford to eat? To feed the cat? To pay for all the medications my decrepit, falling apart body will rely on to function? To pay for my husband’s funeral? (He’s slightly amused by the fact I’ve resig...
