Deadly Tornadoes Lash Louisiana And Mississippi; Nearly 200 Homes Destroyed
Huffington Post - about 1 year
BATON ROUGE, La., Feb 23 (Reuters) - Several tornadoes lashed southern Louisiana and Mississippi on Tuesday, killing at least three people and injuring more than 30 others as the storms destroyed homes and businesses and toppled a water tower, weather and emergency officials said. One of the hardest-hit areas was the Mississippi River hamlet of Convent, Louisiana, where most of the estimated 160 mobile homes at the Sugar Hill RV Park were demolished, the Advocate Newspaper reported, citing St. James Parish Sheriff Willy Martin Jr. The National Weather Service confirmed that at least two people died in Convent, located about 60 miles (100 km) west of New Orleans, and another was killed near the southern Mississippi town of Purvis, where a mobile home was destroyed. Acadian ambulance services in Louisiana said it had transported 31 people to area hospitals in St. James Parish, which bore the brunt of the storms, and five others from three neighboring parish ...

New Analysis Shows Problematic Boom In Higher Ed Administrators
Huffington Post - about 3 years
The number of non-academic administrative and professional employees at U.S. colleges and universities has more than doubled in the last 25 years, vastly outpacing the growth in the number of students or faculty, according to an analysis of federal figures. The disproportionate increase in the number of university staffers who neither teach nor conduct research has continued unabated in more recent years, and slowed only slightly since the start of the economic downturn, during which time colleges and universities have contended that a dearth of resources forced them to sharply raise tuition. In all, from 1987 until 2011-12—the most recent academic year for which comparable figures are available—universities and colleges collectively added 517,636 administrators and professional employees, or an average of 87 every working day, according to the analysis of federal figures, by the New England Center for Investigative Reporting in collaboration with the nonprofit, nonpartisan social-s ...

Why Company Owners Are Saying Goodbye to Consultants and Hello to Interims
Huffington Post - about 3 years
I have lost count of the number of company owners I've met who need help but are scared to death about hiring a consultant. Owners say it all boils down to shoveling out a lot of cash to an outsider without being sure that it will pay off. "I think a lot of times when the consultants come in, their big advantage is that they come across very self-confident and sound great," a former Fortune 50 CEO recently told me in an interview. "But I'm always very worried about what I refer to as the articulate incompetent." He went on, "There's a lot of incredibly articulate people walking around that are incompetent and never accomplished anything. My issue with consultants is that many have never managed, led or operated anything other than PowerPoint slides." Joel Rosenbacher, CEO of Assemblers, a packaging company in Illinois with 600 employees, shares the hesitancy felt among owners and many company leaders: "Last time I brought in a consultant they didn't understand my business and in ...

Men With Big Testicles Less Likely To Be Caring Fathers, Study Shows
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Men with larger testicles tend to be less involved fathers than those with smaller testes, a new study suggests. The findings, detailed today (Sept. 9) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, are correlational, so they can't say exactly why the trend exists but only that there is a link. But men who produce more sperm have bigger testes, and sperm production is extremely energy intensive for the body, so it may be that fathers "face a trade-off between investing energy in parenting and investing energy in mating effort," said study co-author James Rilling, an anthropologist at Emory University in Atlanta. [Sexy Swimmers: 7 Surprising Facts About Sperm] Involved dads Scores of studies have shown that children with involved and caring fathers tend to do better emotionally, socially and educationally. So Rilling and his colleagues were interested in understanding what makes some men stellar dads and others AWOL. A 2011 study in the Philippines s ...

Robert Martin: Challenging the Fertile Window
Huffington Post - over 3 years
We're making babies like it's 1930. Since the thirties it has been widely accepted that conception will occur only in a "fertile window" around ovulation, roughly midway between one menstruation and the next. The idea is that the rest of the month is "safe." This is the foundation for the rhythm method and other birth-control techniques in which a woman monitors her basal body temperature or the mucus secreted by glands in the cervix (neck of the womb). Yet, despite the confidence with which physicians and fertility experts cite this timeframe, humans regularly have sex and conceive outside of such a limited window. While the mechanics of human reproduction have stayed the same in the past 80-plus years, there is no reason why our view of conception should be stuck in the early 20th century. The first question to ask is why copulation regularly occurs outside of the so-called safe period, not only in humans but also in apes and monkeys In most mammals, females typically ...

David Briggs: Over Half Americans Believe In Miracles
Huffington Post - over 4 years
These days, it may seem like a miracle that people still believe in miracles. But even as more people appear to be turning away from organized religion, a new study finds that the number of Americans who definitely believe in religious miracles increased 22 percent in the past two decades, with 55 percent now certain of this supernatural phenomenon. Overall, some four in five Americans believe miracles definitely or probably occur, researcher Robert Martin of Pennsylvania State University reported at the recent meeting of the American Sociological Association in Denver. While beliefs in heaven and hell have remained steady in recent decades, the increased belief in miracles crosses all religious traditions, with the strongest gains reported by those who attend services infrequently, Martin reported. So why this new interest in religious miracles at a time when the number of Americans with no religious affiliation has been increasing? Think Oprah. Spirituality Ri ...

Cooked Food Called Key Ingredient In Human Evolution
Huffington Post - over 4 years
by Ann Gibbons on 22 October 2012, 4:08 PM | Eating a raw food diet is a recipe for disaster if you're trying to boost your species' brainpower. That's because humans would have to spend more than 9 hours a day eating to get enough energy from unprocessed raw food alone to support our large brains, according to a new study that calculates the energetic costs of growing a bigger brain or body in primates. But our ancestors managed to get enough energy to grow brains that have three times as many neurons as those in apes such as gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans. How did they do it? They got cooking, according to a study published online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "If you eat only raw food, there are not enough hours in the day to get enough calories to build such a large brain," says Suzana Herculano-Houzel, a neuroscientist at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil who is co-author of the report. "We can afford m ...

Garden City School Board Candidates Finalized
Garden City Patch - almost 5 years
Monday was the deadline for residents wishing to run for a seat on the Garden City school board to submit their nominating petitions. That means the ballot for the May 15 election has been set. School Board Trustee Tom Pinou will be running for re-election, joined by newcomer Robert Martin. Trustee Laura Hastings, a Garden City resident since 1996 who was elected to the board in 2009, is also up for re-election but will not be running for another term. This is the second election for Pinou in the past two years. He was temporarily appointed to the board in March 2011 to fill Trustee Laura Brown's seat when health reasons forced her to resign. Then, he officially won the right to serve out the remainder of her term when he ran unopposed in the May 17, 2011 election. Pinou has been a resident of Garden City since 1999, and has lived in the village's western section since 2001.

Dixon Patch - almost 5 years
By Bay City News Service Starting today, high school students will have the chance to drag race against Bay Area law enforcement officers at the Infineon Raceway in Sonoma County. Tonight marks the opening night of the 18th season of the raceway's "Top the Cops" program, which runs from April 4 to Aug. 15 in conjunction with the track's STP Wednesday Night Drags program. According to the raceway, the program offers an alternative to illegal street racing on city or backcountry roads. "It's a pretty safe, controlled environment here to do drag racing," raceway spokeswoman Diana Brennan said. Nine law enforcement agencies are participating in this year's program: the California Highway Patrol; the Fairfield, Fremont, Napa, Novato, Sonoma and Windsor police departments; the Sebastopol Peace Officers Association and the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office. Brennan said agencies have come and gone over the years but that there are no new agencies this year. Fairfield police ...
