Last week, I asked, How DO I sleep at night???? and I explained that for the first time in my life, I’ve figured out how to get consistently deep, refreshing sleep almost every night.
What am I doing right? Well, it’s taken me a long time to figure out all the different [...]
The global warming crisis is coming to a critical turning point-of-no-return. World human population is reaching ecologically unsustainable, disastrous levels. No Child Left Behind means that students are coming to college (and into my classrooms!) less and less prepared to handle college-level and real-life decisions, produce effective communication, and assess arguments and texts critically [...]
I have a confession to make. Raw milk and cream make me fat.
Now, to be fair, this past spring was an extremely stressful time for me. I was on the job market, flying all over (and beyond) the country for interviews and conferences, plus trying to fit in teaching into my hectic [...]
There has been a bit of buzz lately in the blogo-/facebook-sphere about something called “Earthing”, derived largely from a book written on the subject which makes some pretty significant claims about the health benefits of placing your (electrically conductive) body in (conductive) contact with the earth as much as possible.

So originally, when I first conceived of this post in my head, it was going to be about Lysol ads from the First World War and shortly thereafter that played on people’s fears about the Spanish influenza pandemic. I heard an excellent talk (given by this woman) at an academic conference I [...]

It’s just not right, I know. But it [...]
The NY Times ran an article this weekend about the rising incidence of yoga-related injuries appearing in US emergency rooms. It’s a very informative article, and an important caution to all yoga practitioners to be attentive to their bodies, lest something truly horrible go awry.
But I couldn’t help myself, reading [...]
This past weekend, Sandrine Hahn from Nourishing Our Children commented on my Chocolate post from April (wow, that seems so long ago!), and it got me to thinking — I haven’t had a chocolate craving in months. Literally months. Who’d’a thunk?
It’s one of those things — like [...]
We just got back a few days ago from Thanksgiving festivities with my family. Thanksgiving day was pretty stressful, despite the fact that we had made very detailed and reasonable plans in advance; there’s always something – many things, really – when you’ve got 14 people, many of whom are contributing various dishes [...]
This post has been a long time coming, hasn’t it?! It’s been quite a while since my first ode to the glories of Hydrochloric Acid, but I think I’ve fully wrapped my words around just exactly what it took to finally break my Nexium habit, heal my GERD, and dramatically improve [...]
