Meet the Guy Who Calls Out B.S. Health News For a Living http://flip.it/BQmBP
Last month, the University of Maryland published a press release touting a new chocolate milk that improved football players’ cognitive skills. Impressed by the news, at least seven high schools in the U.S. looked into buying this brain-boosting beverage to help their student athletes. The only problem? The study was a sham.

I could count on 1 hand the number of Fords I saw in 2 years there.

The company also is quitting the Indonesian market. Ford currently sells […]

HT @CBSMichaelWhite)
My problem with the gym has always been that I love cardio, but find it incredibly boring to do cardio in a room filled with other people doing cardio. Walking into a gym right after work alongside a rush of folks with the same idea isn’t very appealing in itself. Behold! A line of sweaty health drones best differentiated by the uniqueness of their B.O.! Group classes are fine, if you’re down with the unspoken team camaraderie that comes with spi...

Half Of The 525th Fighter Squadron's F-22s Deploy To #Yokota Air Base, #Japan, In Big Show Of Force http://flip.it/bexBz
Seeing F-22s deploy internationally is nothing new, but usually it’s in relatively small groups of four to eight jets. Yet the 525th Fighter Squadron based at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, has just moved 12 F-22s (half of its inventory) to Yokota Air Base in Japan. Obviously such a potent deployment is meant to send a strong message to allies, and potential foes, in the region.

Story
Introduction
I've been a print journalist, on and off, for the majority of my career, in both news and sports. I started my life in journalism as a part-time sports clerk at the Orlando Sentinel when I was a senior at university. That position eventually transitioned into a full-time copy-editing and page-design job when I graduated with a B.A. in journalism and minor in computer science. That was when the World Wide Web was still "browsed" with a text-only browser called Lynx. I hopped on board the 'Net in 1993 with the first computer I bought on my own, a Macintosh Quadra 605 (the first my family owned -- and the first one I taught myself simple BASIC coding on -- was an IBM PCJr).

Meanwhile, my interests outside of journalism include rowing, fitness and working out, so I decided my journalism backup plan would be to become a sports and medical massage therapist and work with athletes at local 5Ks and rowing events. So several years ago, I went to and graduated from massage school and became a licensed massage therapist (Florida license #MA44501).

It's an odd juxtaposition, but I'm blessed to have been able to pursue that second career. I currently have my hands back in career No. 1, so to speak, all the while keeping my massage license up to date "just in case." Time will tell how long my second stint in journalism lasts, but I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm a curator of content on science, animals, nature, journalism, technology and rowing. Just warning you. (And I actually am amused by animated GIFs, but I promise not to innundate you with those.)
