Didn't expect my two fixes to earn me a place in the release announcements. Kind of cool to randomly come across your name on the internet :-)

Anyone know a good place nearby to run twenty miles? Water fountains and elevation changes would be great and while less important shade would also be awesome.

Pretty interesting to see how different types of taxes can effect economic efficiency. Don't have any idea how accurate any of these studies are, but it would certainly be beneficial if we incorporated minimizing deadweight loss as a goal of our tax policy.

Shocking studying from obesity clinic details the surprisingly common occurrence of childhood trauma in dysfunctional families and the trouble it causes throughout life.

Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic have suggested that the reason red meat is harmful is not the saturated fat, but rather that gut bacteria metabolize a compound called carnitine found in red meat into a compound that the liver turns into TMAO, which helps cholesterol get into artery walls. They fed steaks to vegans and people they'd given antiobiotics to and both populations showed very low TMAO production because they had less of the bacteria in their gut which uses carnitine as fuel. Building and weight loss supplements have can have quite a bit more carnitine than a steak.
