    Hard Starboard Radio: "Time Is The Fire In Which We Burn" (Take Two)

    in Politics Conservative

    After last Thursday's excursion in blogcasting awesomeness, I received a call from Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, Washington, (my hometown) informing me that my father had been admitted after having fallen down the previous day and remained on the floor until he was found that afternoon.  He didn't suffer any broken bones, but he was diagnosed with possible spinal meningitis.  This is why I found myself in Wenatchee over the weekend, yesteday, into today, and probably most of this week, just in time for the national headline-grabbing Sleepy Hollow wildfires.  The times, personally and politically speaking, could stand to be a bit less "interesting" for my tastes.  And that's without remote location-induced technical difficulties.


    So climb back into the Wayback Machine (again) as we attempt (again) to revisit a podcast from (nominally) better days.  And, of course, your prayers for my dad are deeply appreciated.  After all, the MRI turned out just fine.

    Is It Okay for Restaurants to Racially Profile Their Employees?

    in Books

    We seem to have decided that ethnic food tastes better when it's served by people of that ethnicity (or at least something close). Does this make sense -- and is it legal?

    Curtis Harwell Discusses What Happens To Your Brain and Body When You Eat

    in Fitness

    Most of us know that junk food is unhealthy. We know that poor nutrition is related to heart problems, high blood pressure, and a host of other health ailments. You might even know that studies show that eating junk food has been linked to increases in depression.


    But if it’s so bad for us, why do we keep doing it?


    There is an answer. And the science behind it will surprise you.


    Why We Crave Junk Food


    Steven Witherly is a food scientist who has spent the last 20 years studying what makes certain foods more addictive (and tasty) than others. Much of the science that follows is from his excellent report, Why Humans Like Junk Food.


    According to Witherly, when you eat tasty food, there are two factors that make the experience pleasurable.


    First, there is the sensation of eating the food. This includes what it tastes like (salty, sweet, umami, etc.), what it smells like, and how it feels in your mouth. This last quality — known as “orosensation” — can be particularly important. Food companies will spend millions of dollars to discover the most satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip. Their scientists will test for the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the sensation that your brain associates with a particular food or drink.


    The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food — the blend of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that it contains. In the case of junk food, food manufacturers are looking for a perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain and gets you coming back for more.

    FUNKY RHYTHM CONNECTION with DONALD GRAMMER/LYNN TOLLIVER JR

    in Music

            It's all in a day's work for Donald Grammer, something he holds passionately close to what he likes to do.  They call these guys, musicologists.  Some people specialize in love, some specialize in money, some go for the gold, or stocks, some glide around spiritual - Donald puts his focus on putting together the great blends, mixed like a real good salad, one that tastes unbelievable, full of nutrition, AND you're going to keep that waistline in tact, too.  This music is something else.
