Ruth ‘s Truths – Ruth Morris

DOWNSIZING -- I'll never be overweight again. I believe that I've licked (pun intended) the habit of emotional eating, and I've instituted a pattern of physical activity that I fiercely defend. I realize, however, that I must always stay vigilant. I've learned, and am here to lead by example: it's not about the food, and not even about the exercise. It requires an about-face change of [...]

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover has measured a tenfold spike in methane, an organic chemical, in the atmosphere around it and detected other organic molecules in a rock-powder sample collected by the robotic laboratory’s drill. “This temporary increase in methane—sharply up and then back down—tells us there must be some relatively localized source,” said Sushil Atreya of the University [...]

Feng Shui – Janet Mitsui Brown

Symbols of Hope in Los Angeles -- I’m a Buddhist and I happen to belong to two Temples in Los Angeles. At one Temple I happened to see a most beautiful leaf on the ground and I picked it up. I thought it was gingko biloba at first, but later I found out it was a leaf from the peepal tree – a species of the Banyan fig, or what is now known as the Bodhi tree. I dried the leaf, thinking [...]
