Posted by dorian on July 31, 2009

“Every team going back 10-15 years needs an * if you want to consider giving it to anyone,” Curt Schilling said on his blog.

David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox - Vincent Laforet/The New York Times

CHICAGO — The 2004 World Series championship ring has 45 diamonds weighing 1.89 carats, cast in 18-karat white gold. On its face is an Old English B, the logo of the Boston Red Sox. Johnny Damon does not wear his, yet it keeps losing its sheen.

Manny Ramirez of the Los Angeles Dodgers

David Ortiz was the most valuable player for the Red Sox in the 2004 American League Championship Series. Manny Ramirez was the M.V.P. of the World Series. Both on Thursday were revealed to have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, and guilt by association may stick to that merry band of self-described idiots.

“I’m sure that’s what people are saying,” Damon said. “When and if that list comes out, I’ll be able to determine what that championship means to me.” Read the rest of this entry »

okay, but can we keep the wine…and some beer.

Posted by dorian on June 26, 2009

okay, here’s my self mandated weekly health post. in dark of the attention given to prescription medication taking our talented and beloved artistes from this earth, here’s pointing a finger at a more available substance abused by many: alcohol.

articles like these would be considered subversive by those who imbibe, particularly the sports fans… what do these frothy drinks look like here? looks refreshingly like b-e-e-r. on a hot breezeless day, betty would be tempted indeed.

Alcohol link to one in 25 deaths

BBC NEws Friday, 26 June 2009 03:01 UK

Drinks

The amount people drink varies worldwide

One in 25 deaths across the world are linked to alcohol consumption, Canadian experts have suggested.

Writing in the Lancet, the team from the University of Toronto added that the level of disease linked to drinking affects poorest people the most.

Worldwide, average alcohol consumption is around 12 units a week – but in Europe that soars to 21.5. The report authors warn the effect of alcohol disease is similar to that of smoking a decade ago.

…the Law of Universal Gravitation:

If F is the force due to gravity, g the acceleration due to gravity, G the Universal Gravitational Constant (6.67×10-11 N.m2/kg2), m the mass and r the distance between two objects. Then

F = G m1 m2 / r2      ! ! !

okay, maybe that’s not how it happened. but on to our health post for the week. it’s about my dog mack’s favorite activity: sleeping.

Problems are solved by sleeping

Sleep is important for assimilating new information

Sleeping on a problem really can help solve it, say scientists who found a dreamy nap boosts creative powers.

They tested whether “incubating” a problem allowed a flash of insight, and found it did, especially when people entered a phase of sleep known as REM.

Volunteers who had entered REM or rapid eye movement sleep – when most dreams occur – were then better able to solve a new problem with lateral thinking. Read the rest of this entry »
