Dr. Michael Gregor: Four Ways to Improve on the Mediterranean Diet (Nutrition Facts)
The traditional Mediterranean diet can be considered mainly, but not exclusively, as a plant-based diet, and certainly not a whole foods, plant-based diet. Olive oil and wine can be considered essentially fruit juices. Even if one is eating a "vegiterranean diet," an entirely plant-based version, there are a number of problematic nutritional aspects that are rarely talked about. For example, the Mediterranean diet includes lots of white bread, white pasta and not a lot of whole grains.

Maryland Friends! Did you ever feel a little jealous that all your Red State friends get to call and plead with their congressional folks to do the right thing? Well, it looks like Senator Van Hollen is waffling on Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary. We don't need to tell you what a disaster she would be for public education, so please flood his office with calls. (Polite ones, please!) You can call him at (202) 224-4654.
Imogen Sara Smith: "Dark Passages: The Devil in the Details" (Criterion)
To make the performance of a tedious, exacting, time-consuming task riveting to watch, it is only necessary for the activity to be illegal. This is the lesson of heist movies, in which rigorous attention to process and stripped-down purity of focus are wedded to crowd-pleasing elements of suspense, violence, and hard-boiled patter.
Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr. (born Leslie Lynch King, Jr.; July 14, 1913 - December 26, 2006) was an American politician who served as the 38th President of the United States from 1974 to 1977. Prior to this he was the 40th Vice President of the United States, serving from 1973 until President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974. He was the first person appointed to the vice presidency under the terms of the 25th Amendment, following the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew on October 10, 1973. Becoming president upon Richard Nixon's departure on August 9, 1974, he claimed the distinction as the first and to date only person to have served as both Vice President and President of the United States without being elected to either office.
Mark. was first and correct with:
Gerry Ford became vice president and president without being elected to
Why... that would be old Gerald Ford
He took over as VP when Spiro Agnew had to resign in disgrace
and then took over as P when Nixon had to resign in disgrace
Weird weather here in the Dakotas...
warm and foggy today!
Headin for Vegas, baby!
Will be AFK for a week or so
be good - stay warm
A kind of tragic figure, really
Gerald Ford was appointed to replace Spiro Agnew when he was forced to
resign, then succeeded Richard Nixon when he escaped on the last
helicopter of his administration.
Stephen F said:
The man who didn't get elected President because of the heat he took for Nixon. It was Gerald Ford, who had a quite interesting career in public service and life. (Born Leslie King, Jr, adopted by his Mother's second husband and became Gerald Ford, Jr)
Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
Gerald R. Ford
I'm guessing it was Gerald Ford. I don't remember how he became VP, but I know he became President when Nixon resigned (I remember watching that speech as a very young adult and knowing that I was watching history).
It's raining again, hard, with wind. I haven't seen a January like this since 1997. Welcome back, regular winter.
I'll be in mourning today, and perhaps drinking too much tonight. Tomorrow I'm headed to Sacramento for a march. It's my duty as an American to dissent peacefully. The person who is not my president won't care, but perhaps our other elected officials will pay attention.
Somehow, TGIF seems more like a curse than a hopeful expression of anticipation.
Dave in Tucson answered:
The only person to serve as Vice President and President of the US is
that notorious Nixon pardoner Gerald Ford. It could be argued that's
what started the once proud Republican Party's metamorphosis to the
extremist scofflaw party it is today.

Bad news, aspiring Starfleet captains: "Star Trek: Discovery," the first new Trek TV series since "Enterprise" went off the air more than a decade ago, has been delayed. We have no new date for when it might finally engage.
"Discovery" is to be set about a decade before the events of the original Kirk & Spock "Star Trek" TV series, and would follow the crew of the USS Discovery. Its 13-episode run was scheduled to being this month, then pushed back until May 2017. At one point the
showrunner even stepped down. Now CBS says the show won't begin in May either, because of delays for casting and rewrites.
Nevertheless, the series is still forging ahead. CBS Television today announced that Gotham and True Blood star James Frain has joined the cast as Sarek, the father of Spock. He'll work alongside The Walking Dead's Sonequa Martin-Green, who was recently cast as the series lead , as well as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Michelle Yeoh , who will play a Starfleet captain.
The manager of rocker Alanis Morissette has admitted to fleecing the singer of nearly $5 million and falsely claiming the money was used to grow marijuana.
Jonathan Todd Schwartz agreed to plead guilty to embezzling the money in court papers filed in Los Angeles federal court.
Schwartz admitted that between May 2010 and January 2014 he withdrew about $4.8 million from Morissette's account without her knowledge and labeled the unauthorized cash withdrawals as "sundry/personal expenses" on accounting records.
When confronted about the missing funds, he then lied and claimed the money was used as an investment to illegally grow cannabis.
Schwartz also admitted to embezzling more than $1.7 million from one other unidentified celebrity and a sports figure.
Six scientists have entered a dome perched atop a remote volcano in Hawaii where they will spend the next eight months in isolation to simulate life for astronauts traveling to Mars, the University of Hawaii said.
The study is designed to help NASA better understand human behavior and performance during long space missions as the U.S. space agency explores plans for a manned mission to the Red Planet.
The crew will perform geological field work and basic daily tasks in the 1,200-square-foot (365 m) dome, located in an abandoned quarry 8,000 feet (2.5 km) above sea level on the Mauna Loa volcano on Hawaii's Big Island.
There is little vegetation and the scientists will have no contact with the outside world, said the university, which operates the dome.
Communications with a mission control team will be time-delayed to match the 20-minute travel time of radio waves passing between Earth and Mars.
A line from President Donald Trump's (R-Pendejo) inauguration speech on Friday eerily echoed the Batman villain Bane.
After Trump's speech, people quickly noticed one line's similarity to a Bane quote from the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises," which came out in 2012.
"Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another - but we are transferring power from Washington, DC, and giving it back to you, the people," Trump said in his speech.
Not exactly the same, but it's close to what Bane, played by Tom Hardy, says of Gotham when he holds the city hostage and removes its police and powerful officials.
"We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you, the people," Bane said.
Nigel Farage, who led the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, will be a political analyst on Fox News and Fox Business Network, Fox News said on Friday.
Farage will appear on both daytime and prime-time programming for the networks, whose parent company is 21st Century Fox Inc.
Farage, the former leader of the United Kingdom's Independence Party, lead the charge for the UK's "Brexit" vote last year to leave the European Union.
He also was a major supporter of Donald Trump (R-Sock Puppet), who was sworn in as president of the United States on Friday. Farage attended the inauguration in Washington as a guest of Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.
Farage was a founding member of the Independence Party in 1993 and its leader from 2006 to 2009 and then again from 2010 to 2016. He has said he wants to be a bridge between Trump's administration and the British government.

Idaho must destroy all information collected from tracking collars placed on elk and wolves obtained illegally by landing a helicopter in a central Idaho wilderness area, a federal judge ordered Thursday.
U.S. District Court Judge B. Lynn Winmill in the 24-page ruling said it's such an extreme case that "the only remedy that will directly address the ongoing harm is an order requiring destruction of the data."
Winmill said the U.S. Forest Service in January 2016 broke environmental laws when it authorized Idaho Fish and Game to put collars on elk by making helicopter landings in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, where engines are prohibited.
The state agency placed the collars on about 60 elk to gather information it said was needed to better understand what was causing reductions in the elk population in the wilderness.
But state workers also put collars on four wolves in an action the Forest Service didn't authorize. The state agency blamed miscommunication with a helicopter crew.
If your job involves inputting reams of data for a company, you might want to think about retraining in a more specialised field. Or as a plumber.
After industrial robots and international trade put paid to many manufacturing jobs in the West, millions of white-collar workers could now be under threat from new technology such as artificial intelligence (AI).
The issue of how best to face up to this "Fourth Industrial Revolution" has been exercising politicians and business leaders this week at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss Alpine town of Davos.
The progress of artificial intelligence has been "staggering" in recent years, said Vishal Sikka, chief executive of Indian IT services giant Infosys.
But much more dislocation could yet be coming, and both the public and Western governments need to wake up to the challenge, observers say.
