When I first heard about meditation, I think it was on some kind of early 80s sitcom, with people wearing unitards and scarves and chanting “ohm” as the laugh track blared. But, now meditation and mindfulness are getting serious attention. Data from the 2017 National Health Interview Survey found that U.S. adults’ use of meditation tripled between …
 
It seems like Almost Yesterday that the movie, “The Gangs of New York” shocked American audiences with its graphic portrayal of New York City in the middle of the nineteenth century. Martin Scorsese’s 2002 production is a shockingly violent account of the gangland struggle for the territorial control of lower Manhattan. The film grossed over two hu…
 
The Roman emperor Nero had a mercurial personality. For example, he killed his wife by kicking her when she was pregnant, but then he gave her the most lavish funeral imaginable. He burned on her pyre all of the cinnamon in Rome. There could have been no higher honor. The Romans believed cinnamon was sacred and every Roman emperor stocked cinnamon …
 
Just when the pandemic led us to believe we’ve seen it all, many businesses are now facing an issue completely novel in anyone’s memory. Lack of available workers is a rising concern across the country. And let’s be clear, I’m not talking about the issue of a tight labor market making it difficult for businesses to expand or fill out their workforc…
 
Discover nature this week with Missouri's red-winged blackbirds. A stake-out requires being inconspicuous, but not so for red-winged blackbirds.

Their red-and-yellow shou…

The next time you visit the eye doctor and need to update your glasses prescription, you may be asked if you want blue-blocking lenses. However, it wouldn’t be for the health of your eyes. Contrary to what some blue-light blocking glasses retailers might suggest, The American Academy of Ophthalmology says you don’t need them and has gone on record …
 
It seems like almost yesterday that one of the great legends of Southeast Missouri was born. On the afternoon of August 14, 1902, William Helms, a farmer near Hopewell, Missouri stopped to water his horse in a stream under a railroad trestle near Irondale. As he turned to leave he heard the muffled cry of a child. To his great surprise he found the…
 
“I never worry about diets,” observed Mae West. “The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.” Considering the source, such a view is, perhaps, understandable, but it is certainly shortsighted. After all, the carrot is among the most multi-faceted of all root vegetables. Added to soups and stews, the carrot lends sweetness…

Discover Nature this week with fire in Missouri. Fire is an important part of our lives. To some, memories of campfires bring warm and pleasant feelings, but others remember the horrors of wildfires.

It seems like Almost Yesterday that a young man from Farmington, Missouri, walked on to the pitcher’s mound in New York’s Yankee Stadium for the first game in his major league baseball career. It was Saturday, June 28, 1980, when twenty-four year old Tim Lollar pitched the seventh and eighth innings against the Cleveland Indians, a game the Yankees…
 
From a culinary perspective, every season is joyous, but for me it’s always spring, at least in my kitchen. That’s because my favorite item of kitchenware is the springform pan. The function of the pan is to make it possible to take out of the pan a cake which is too fragile to trust to the conventional method of turning it upside down and keeping …
 
According to Zig Ziglar, “The only thing worse than training employees and losing them is not training them and keeping them.” Professional development is an important ongoing part of business success. It should permeate all levels of organizations large and small. And while most employers would agree with the importance, many have come up short wi…
 
Discover nature this week with Missouri's Meadowlarks.

That time of the month. A visit from your friend. The curse. Aunt Flo. There are so many euphemisms for menstruation that sometimes women and girls get the message they really shouldn’t mention it. Perhaps that’s why one of the mottos of the Endometriosis Association is “Let’s Talk About It.” March is National Endometriosis Awareness Month. The con…

The Boeing Aircraft was piloted by Ira Oris Biffle, from…

The French think they're superior to us when it comes to clothing, wine, and food -- not to mention romance! And, admittedly, they do have a way with each; and perhaps nowhere is French sophistication more evident -- at least in the culinary world -- when it comes to pancakes. American pancakes are puffy, down-to-earth concoctions, sometimes ineleg…

Discover nature this week with Missouri's mushroom. Late March and April showers bring… mushrooms? Yep! Showers and warm nights make morels (muh-rells) grow and send folks to their favorite mushroom-hunting spots. In late spring, watch for morels growing on the ground. The top or cap looks something like a sponge, with a shape like a tiny Christmas…

Three years into World War II and after the first big victory for the allies, Winston Churchill famously said, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” The same might be said for the COVID-19 pandemic at this moment in time. March 11, 2021 marked one year since the World Healt…
 
It seems like Almost Yesterday that hundreds of comic books and magazines, judged as indecent and unfit for children, were ceremonially burned in Cape Girardeau .

“There are only two kinds of people in the world,” an Irish saying goes. “The Irish and those who wish they were.” If you look around on St. Patrick’s day, you might think that’s true, for on St. Patrick’s Day Americans, regardless of their ancestry, will wear green, sing Irish songs, guzzle Irish beer, and dine on corned beef and cabbage. But not …

As California restaurant critic Merrill Shindler observes, "Like politics and religion, nobody agrees about the one true chili." It's a dish that's easy to get into an argument over. For example, some people vehemently claim that real chili does not contain beans while others claim just as vehemently that it does and, what is more, they'll specify …
 
Discover nature this week with Missouri's starlings. When Shakespeare wrote the play Henry the Fourth in 1597, he had no way of knowing the trouble it would bring to North American birds in the 20th century. Somewhere in the play, Shakespeare made an innocent reference to the starling. This reference led to the release of 60 starlings in New York’s…
