There are lots of websites that I try read daily (the list of blogs would be too long to publish here). I consider these sites must reads. However, their appearance here doesn’t mean I agree with everything they written therein. Instead, it signifies only that I find them worth the keystrokes.

Weight Loss & Fitness

Straight to the Bar

Why do I like this site? Well first of all, the owner had the good sense to ask yours truly witty and insightful commentary. It is an excellent place to pick up info on power lifting, bodybuilding, weight loss, and other issues related to fitness.

The Weigh we Were.

Visit! Be inspired! And then take the time to post your profile and inspire others! [I love exclamation points!]

I recommend Dick Morris’s most recent article about why Hillary’s campaign is losing ground fast.

News

Raleigh News & Observer

“A judge this afternoon denied a request by several Muslim families from Wake County that they be allowed to go through with a ritual slaughter of lambs at a Johnston County farm on Wednesday as part of a religious festival.

Johnston County Superior Court Judge Tom Lock said his temporary ban on the slaughter at the Rowe farm near Princeton does not violate the families’ right to practice their religion, because they can slaughter the lambs elsewhere. Lock barred the slaughter at the Rowe farm last week at the request of state officials, who say the farm does not have the property sanitary facilities.”

Freedom of religion issue or valid public health concern? You decide.

How do professors adapt to teaching in an increasingly technology driven world? Maybe we could try acting like this guy. HA! Here are a few examples of his unconventional techniques…

“In his lectures at ocw.mit.edu, Professor Lewin beats a student with cat fur to demonstrate electrostatics. Wearing shorts, sandals with socks and a pith helmet — nerd safari garb — he fires a cannon loaded with a golf ball at a stuffed monkey wearing a bulletproof vest to demonstrate the trajectories of objects in free fall.

He rides a fire-extinguisher-propelled tricycle across his classroom to show how a rocket lifts off.” [1]

There are lots more, but I think I’ll stop there for today.
