Researchers Find New Genetic Clues to Longevity If you live to be 100, you’re in a special group, one that longevity scientists are eagerly studying for clues to battling aging. But are these centenarians long-lived because they don’t get the diseases that fell the rest of us—heart problems, diabetes, dementia, arthritis and more—or because they are protected somehow against the effects of aging? Based on the data so far, most experts have concluded that centenarians get to where they are because they have some anti-aging secret that shields them against the effects of aging. That’s because studies found that centenarians had just as many genes that contribute to disease as those with more average life spans.

List of forms of government Ever wondered what all those ...ocracies and ...archies were? Seek no further than RationalWiki's list of forms of government. Anarchism A form of government with no ruling hierarchy, instead decisions are made at a directly democratic level: laws are created by citizens alone, although they may be enforced by institutions that are not publicly controlled.

Kitchen Tour: Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Kitchen After fourteen years in a Manhattan kitchen untouched by renovation, Sara Moulton recently took an axe to it all and started from scratch. It might shock you to learn she still cooks on an electric stove (no gas in the building) and didn't enlarge the footprint one inch. Better yet, she cooks five nights a week for her family of four and develops all of her recipes there. I spent a recent afternoon in her apartment chatting about what makes an ideal kitchen and helping her make Chicken Saltimbocca from her new book, Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Dinners. Meet Sara Moulton: chef, cookbook author, and television personality. For twenty three years, Sara was the executive chef at GourmetMagazine, until its closing in October 2009.
Honey, I love you…but we need separate beds My husband, Josh, and I shared a bathroom before we ever shared a bed. Our individual bedrooms were separated by a full bath with a door on either side, like the Brady Bunch kids’. I always made sure to lock his side or risk his busting in on me. Low Cost Recipes Archives Sometimes, being frugal means you have to skimp on higher quality ingredients. Or having to survive on plainer grains, like rice. Throughout the years, I have found many ways to jazz up or stretch what little we may have in our cupboards so that most importantly, I keep the kids from feeling like they have empty tummies, or missing out. One thing they never used to eat, surprisingly, was rice. Up until about a year ago, they would not touch rice – maybe it was the blandness, or the texture.

History Food Blog - Best Food Blogs - Gourmet Food Blog *Terroir, a French word pronounced tur-WAH, is the unique combination of geographic location, climate and microclimate, soil and temperature that creates the individual personality of an agricultural product. As in the growing of grapes for wine or beans for coffee, terroir dramatically affects the flavor profiles of the product. A blended Scotch is created by mixing the distillations (Scotches) from multiple single malt producers. By selecting particular single malts, the blender can achieve the exact flavor combination desired, with more balance and complexity.
What Your Girlfriend Wants, But Will Never Ask For She wants you to touch her mindlessly while the two of you watch a movie – she doesn’t want that ‘Netflix and Chill’ touching, where the movie is clearly just a pretext to do something else. She wants you to drag your fingers lightly along her arm, in her hair, on her hand. She wants to know that you want to touch her as a matter of habit, as a reflex that just feels more right than doing nothing at all. Touching should become second nature, not always a means to an end. She wants you to surprise her, but not with some grand gesture you saw in a movie. She doesn’t need the guy lighting a hundred candles in the shape of a heart or a cheesy word, and she doesn’t need to be serenaded with soft guitar music.
