I love Peter Hollens, his music is awesome! He has almost 4 octaves in his vocal range and a college degree in Vocal Performance. He has all of his music on YouTube, there are links to buy it all, and he pays all the necessary licenses for his covers, he's always legal and legit. Ethics are sexy! Did you know he co-founded the U of Oregon's 'On The Rocks' male a cappella group...and went on to compete with them on The Sing-Off season 2?  https://www.youtube.com/user/peterhollens/videos
 
Woohoo! Peter Hollens CD!

A capella artist +Peter Hollens's new CD came in the mail today! For those of you who haven't seen Peter's Youtube videos, I highly recommend giving them some time. One of my favourites is the one he just released, a cover of the Song of the Lonely Mountain from The Hobbit:

He was also involved in the viral Angels We Have Heard on High Christmas music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELjgFKACcdQ

If you like what you see/hear, there are multiple ways of purchasing the CD - they are listed on his website: http://www.peterhollens.com.

No, I am not being paid for this advertisement, but I'm happy to support independent artists who make awesome and unique music. I've been enjoying +Peter Hollens's videos for a long time, and it's exciting to see him successful - and pretty cool to now have a physical CD of his music. :-)

Cranking up the planetary heat is going to ratchet down the planet’s biodiversity.

Breast milk not only has unquestionable nutritional value, but it provides infants with an added level of immune protection that no commercial formula has been able to duplicate. That’s because even colostrum—the first milk produced by new mothers—contains large numbers of antibodies and other infection-fighting cells. Through breast milk, nursing mothers are able to provide their babies with a continued source of antibodies long after they deliver. As a result, breastfed babies are protected against many if not all of the diseases to which their mothers’ are immune. It is because of this significant boost in immunity that breastfed babies have been shown to get sick less often, suffer from fewer ear infections, and experience less severe symptoms when they do get sick. And while you may be familiar with the risk of uneven heating and scald burns associated with microwaving breast milk, it’s worth noting that doing so is also thought to destroy the immune properties of the milk.

Work published in Environmental Microbiology shows that important gut bacteria travels from mother to child through breast milk to colonise a child's own gut, helping his or her immune system to mature. Too few friendly bacteria in the infant's gut can throw the immune system off balance.

And remember mommy's to eat healthy. A dose of good probiotics can go a long way. Our choice is of course the naturally fermented Biogenics MD.

Good morning Googalia.  How are you today?  I hope your weekend is awesome whatever you may be doing.

As for the article, I'd have to read the whole review in context, but what is quoted is very damning.  It makes one wonder how much has been missed because of individuals like this in key positions.  
A peer-reviewer for the scientific journal PLOS ONE rejected a manuscript authored by two women, not for its content or flaws in the scientific process, but because it wasn’t written by a man.

Sadly, now closed. Sign on door says a Korean restaurant will open in the same spot. The food is wonderful here, freshly prepared sushi husband says was excellent; my vegetable Tempura was delightful, and the place had very few customers on this Friday evening. I hope it stays afloat in this economy, its an affordable gem. The decor is nothing special, but if good food is your goal, with good service, this is the place.

I like Maplewood Community Center because unlike other health clubs, they have no contracts to sign...you join for however long you like, a year, a month, three months....or buy a 10-visit card to 'try it out' if you dislike committing too far at first. They have lots of classes, especially mornings and evenings; as an unemployed person for years now, I actually wish they had more mid-day class options. They are close to a busline that stops on the half-hour; they have childcare; and they have an onsite Subway Sandwich Shop as well as vending machines. Ample locker rooms have lockers that lock with a quarter, but when you unlock your locker, it gives you back the quarter. It has a very large parking lot that is often more than half full, so its a popular place. Its a wonderful place, clean, friendly, has a pool (not all fitness places have pools) sometimes when my mind considers moving out of our rental...I want to move closer to the Maplewood Community Center. Its multiple levels but it does have an elevator, and a wheelchair ramp. A walking track, weight machine area, all the normal things a fitness center should have. Its only lacks in my opinion is not having a sauna, and the pool is chlorine rather than other, healthier ways to keep a pool clean.

We've used this Pizza Hut at least 12 times over 4 years now, and yes, *sometimes* they get the order wrong, but always, the manager or night manager makes it up to us one way or another for the wait while we get our order re-done. It helps that we always go pick it up rather than have it delivered, so we can catch mistakes there in the store usually. Usually. Once husband got the large pizza home and it must have been newer staff and/or dinner rush cause I opened that box and immediately I could tell that pizza was underdone. Crust was firm but still white, sent husband back with it. He returned with a proper large and another identical large thrown in free, for our trouble and wait. We do have an unusual preference, meatlovers pan with no sauce. I can see how a pizza-maker could get into the habit of starting the sauce on the dough before checking to see if the order has special requests. Once I ordered a personal pan no sauce and the maker put sauce on it then noticed the order was for 'no sauce' and it was their last personal-size dough they had, so I got a medium size pizza for the price of a personal pan pizza. That was cool in the long run. Meanwhile, Pizza Hut has always been my favorite pizza place, and the food is tasty, the price is great (love the $10 sales) and they never mind when I order unusual combos like bacon and Canadian bacon. Now.....if only they had a topping option of shrimp.
