NBC Has Another Slot to Fill

Posted on January 30, 2015

Is it me, or is the television shows that are on these days lackluster? When I was growing up in the 80’s, television was at its pinnacle. I would watch shows like Roseanne, Golden Girls, 227, Hunter, Give Me A Break and others. It was the era for TV and my childhood friend Lee G. Lovett and I couldn’t wait till my favorite shows came on. Today’s reality shows have taken over the set and the few good shows that are left have fallen by the way to bad ratings. 

Parenthood was a funny show that brought a lot of laughs into my home. Being a parent is hard, and once more it is something that only the strong will survive. The real problem is every time that I find a show that I like, it either gets cancelled or it gets bad reviews. I loved the show with Kathy Bates on NBC, Harry’s Law. Unfortunately, it soon fell by the way and was taken off the air too soon. 

Another show that I really like is The Mystery’s of Laura on NBC. This show is also getting bad ratings. I am finding a pattern because the movies I like usually are poorly rated too. My sister and I often joke “who is rating these movies anyway, we loved it?” So as we say goodbye to Parenthood, we can only imagine what will be put on in it’s place. My guess is another police drama.

Drinking Bone Broth Part of Paleo Diet Plan

Posted on January 30, 2015

Many cultures find drinking a broth-based soup a normal part of their meal. A bowl of vegetable broth sipped during the meal moistens the food, adds nutrients, aids in digestion and cleanses the palette. It’s also a perfect way for the cook to utilize all the vegetable scraps that accumulate during meal preparation. But would you want to buy animal bones and make a broth soup to drink during meals as a part of diet plan? You would if you were adhering to the Paleo diet plan.
The Paleo diet plan takes followers on a culinary journey back to our hunter-gather ancestors and the foods which they may have eaten. the so-called caveman diet consists of a lot of raw vegetables and bone broth to drink.
Home cooks everywhere know the taste value of making homemade stock from vegetable trimmings and animal bones. The tasty broth is strained and then used as a base for a wide variety of recipes in most home and restaurant kitchens. But the bone broth stops right there for Paleo diet followers and other non-dieters are following suit because of the flavor of bone broth and the touted healthy goodness. From what people like Marc Sparks can tell, the trend is heading towards replacing hot cups of designer coffee and tea with a nutritious cups and glasses of bone broth.

Some individuals asked me the way I would get sufficient protein (simple to do using tofu as well as nuts, for instance), or even whether I would lack particular nutrients (simple to observe for or even to supplement). Although the major idea- a meal that is filled with whole cereals, produce, beans as well as nuts- is to maintain to a least amount of the same diets we all are supposed to mainly stay away from.


Bill Clinton states that his diet aided him in reversing the injury that had occurred on his heart plus his blood vessels brought about by cardiovascular ailment and offered him extra energy. The vegan lifestyle could barely have demanded for extra star power. And having a look at him post-diet may make you to imagine we ought to all go vegan.

The Benefits of Exercise after Weight Loss

Posted on January 28, 2015

When most people think of losing weight, they think of dieting and exercise. Dave and Brit Morin know that if a person would like to lose weight and keep it off, both of these components are usually necessary. Read more about the Morins on Googleplus. 

An individual can lose weight simply by cutting calories and consuming less food. Many studies have been done that prove that when an individual loses weights in this way, they usually regain the weight later on. It is difficult for a person to cut calories and then stay on a low-calorie diet for the rest of their life.

A recent study that was published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise proves that if an individual exercises after losing weight, they will be able to keep the weight off. The study was based on 100 women who agreed to eat a diet that consisted of only 800 calories every day. Different groups were asked to take part in different types of exercises or no exercise at all. The women who exercised after losing weight were able to keep it off as opposed to the women who gained weight again after losing it.

Besides the fact that exercising after weight loss helps to keep the weight off, it has long been known that people should get up and get moving. This helps to prevent a wide variety of health issues, including osteoporosis. Also, it helps to boost a person’s mood and ward off the effects of seasonal depression.

About Jonathan Veitch: President of Oxy College

Posted on January 27, 2015

When it comes to working behind the scenes on some of the largest projects in the Los Angeles area, Jonathan Veitch is that individual. He has been living and working throughout LA since the 2000s and his influence continues to grow as a professional and educator. From his early upbringing in southern California to his college experience, he has always lived and breathed everything California, so it should come as no surprise to anyone to find out that he strives to provide some of the very best assistance to others who are looking to accomplish the same endeavors throughout their own California experience.

Jonathan grew up in sunny southern California where he attended Loyola High School. Upon graduating, he eventually moved up the coast to Stanford University where he received his bachelor’s degree. In order to gain a bit of perspective and to expand upon his own knowledge base, he eventually moved out to the East Coast and obtain a degree in the History of American Civilization from Harvard University.

Eventually, Jonathan moved back to California and became the president of Occidental College, located in the heart of Los Angeles in 2009. Since then, he has moved to improve not only the college itself, but the surrounding communities, both economically and also improve the relationship between the college and the community as well. Many in the community did not want to see the college start to take over the entire region of the city, which would put them out of their homes. Jonathan Veitch not only listened to them by limiting the expansion of the college campus into the local community, but he also unveiled a one megawatt solar array right on the Occidental campus in order to produce a large portion of the schools energy, which will go on and cut down on solution from the school and also save the college hundreds of millions of dollars in the long run.

As the very first president of Occidental College to be from Los Angeles originally, he has a very special passion for the city itself, which is why he takes so much pride in what he does for the city. He also lives nearby the college with his wife and three children as he gives them a very similar upbringing that he received when he was their age. With any hope, they can turn out to be even more successful.
