News from Meadville. Becky was inducted into the Allegheny College sports Hall of Fame today along with 5 other alums. Here she is giving her acceptance speech to a crowd including an inspiring professor, some teammates from back in the day, her original swim coach, and so many others who had direct influence on her.

Also pictures of her with the current team. She is a volunteer coach so has a deep relationship with some, especially the women. And being congratulated again at half time of three homecoming football game.

I'm floored. Debunking one of the foundations of nutrition guidelines takes guts. As a vegetarian of almost two decades this won't have the slightest impact on my food choices but I can see that this is a big deal.

PS. Nutrition is confusing.

"Dr. Keys was formidably persuasive and, through sheer force of will, rose to the top of the nutrition world—even gracing the cover of Time magazine—for relentlessly championing the idea that saturated fats raise cholesterol and, as a result, cause heart attacks.... As the director of the largest nutrition study to date, Dr. Keys was in an excellent position to promote his idea.... Critics have pointed out that Dr. Keys violated several basic scientific norms in his study.... In 1961, Dr. Keys sealed saturated fat's fate by landing a position on the nutrition committee of the American Heart Association, whose dietary guidelines are considered the gold standard.... Too much institutional energy and research money had already been spent trying to prove Dr. Keys's hypothesis. A bias in its favor had grown so strong that the idea just started to seem like common sense...."

That children's chorus is a nice touch. Gratitude for one another, reminder to enjoy the season, mention of Christmas - all the important elements of a holiday classic.

Does this guy survive this predicament? (Spoiler: yes, like a boss.) It took me several views just to believe what I was seeing.

Rule 1: don't hurt others. Rule 2: clear space for someone down or hurt. Rule 3: don't get hurt. Rule 4: have fun.
