SORT BY Relevancy
Carolyn Yeager continues her investigation into "what makes a traitor" by looking at The Cambridge Five: Upper-class British Trinity College students who began their unlikely career as Communist sympathizers and members of secret 'discussion group' clubs. Anthony Blunt, Guy Burgess, Kim Philby and Donald Maclean went on to become full-fledged Soviet agents during WWII and the Cold War. Guy, Kim and Donald eventually defected to the Soviet Union and died there. Blunt and Cairncross were outed but never prosecuted, remaining in Britain. But why did they want to do it in the first place? That is never satisfactorily explained by them but Carolyn offers some suggestions.

This book is a fly-on-the-wall exploration and an immersion into the John Wayne mythology: his politics, his inspirations, the plots to assassinate him, his connections to Stalin, Khrushchev, and Chairman Mao, and the death of the Western.
Did you know that . . .
* Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin ordered not one, but two assassination attempts, on the life of rabid anti-Communist movie star John “Duke” Wayne, because the Duke was exposing Communist infiltration of Hollywood?
* Wayne and the FBI captured Russian hit men and turned them into assets of U.S. intelligence?
* Homegrown Hollywood Communists attempted to carry out Stalin's orders in Burbank, California only to be captured by John Wayne and the FBI, then sent to Russia?
* Communist mass murderer Mao Tse-tung sent a Chinese assassin to Vietnam, where he barely missed John Wayne at a Marine base camp, only to be captured and questioned by the Duke himself?
* John Wayne practically slugged Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in 1958 - a scene that may well have been the model for George C. Scott's confrontation with the Russian general in “Patton”?
John and Dan continue previewing the 2014 ACC football season, focusing on the Duke Blue Devils this week. Other topics include (but are not limited to): the renewal of the SU-Georgetown series, last year's Duke-SU basketball games and beer.
Healthy Living Step No. 1: Take stock.
Your first step toward healthy living is to get a handle on your health status right now. Here's your to-do list:
Make appointments with your doctor and dentist. Catch up on your routine screening and immunizations, and take the opportunity to ask your doctor any questions you might have.
Gauge your girth. Measure your height and weight to check your BMI, and measure your waist circumference to see if you're overweight and if your waistline is putting your health at risk.
Assess your activity. How much physical activity do you get in a typical week? How intense is that activity? How much variety do you get in your activity, and how much do you enjoy it? The CDC recommends that adults get at least two and a half hours per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or one hour and 15 minutes per week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, plus muscle-strengthening activities at least two days per week.
Keep a food diary. Write down everything you eat for a day -- and no fair skipping the items you're embarrassed about. "The idea is to write it down ... without judgment," says Kathianne Sellers Williams, MEd, RD, LD, a nutritionist, wellness coach, and personal trainer with Cafe Physique in Atlanta. "You can't change what you're not aware of or don't acknowledge."

Tonight, I'm honored to be joined by Delaware engineer and businessman Kevin Wade, who is running for the GOP nomination for the US Senate. Kevin will be with me tonight, live in-studio, to discuss his commonsense conservative campaign to get America back on the right track. This administration is embroiled by more scandals than any other in living memory. Kevin's ideas for American energy independence, national security and the economy are bold, clear and based on American values and the American way.

Good Protein Sources
Protein can help you shed those unwanted pounds -- and keep your belly full. But it's important to eat the right amount and the right kind of protein to get its health benefits.
Seafood is an excellent source of protein because it's usually low in fat. Fish such as salmon is a little higher in fat, but it is the heart-healthy kind: it has omega-3 fatty acids.
Stick to the white meat of poultry for excellent, lean protein. Dark meat is a little higher in fat. The skin is loaded with saturated fat, so remove skin before cooking.
Milk, Cheese, and Yogurt
Not only are dairy foods like milk, cheese, and yogurt excellent sources of protein, but they also contain valuable calcium, and many are fortified with vitamin D. Choose skim or low-fat dairy to keep bones and teeth strong and help prevent osteoporosis.
Eggs are one of the least expensive forms of protein. The American Heart Association says normal healthy adults can safely enjoy an egg a day.
One-half cup of beans contains as much protein as an ounce of broiled steak. Plus, these nutritious nuggets are loaded with fiber to keep you feeling full for hours.
This great and versatile white meat is 31% leaner than it was 20 years ago.
Fifty grams of soy protein daily can help lower cholesterol by about 3%. Eating soy protein instead of sources of higher-fat protein -- and maintaining a healthy diet -- can be good for your heart.
Research shows that including a source of protein like an egg or Greek yogurt at breakfast along with a high-fiber grain like whole wheat toast can help you feel full longer and eat less throughout the day.

Tonight, another creepy and incriminating Lois Lerner email has surfaced...what will Issa's committee do? Thousand of 3rd-world children are inundating the U.S. - Mexico border. Are we obligated to take them in? Israel is attacking Hamas positions while the terror group fires hundreds of rockets at Israeli cities. Why is the world condemning Israel, but not the mohammedan terrorists?
Plus...yesterday, two big-name Republicans filed to run for office in Delaware: Kevin Wade, now making his second run at the U.S. Senate, and Sher Valenzuela, getting ready for a primary battle against Ken Simpler for the GOP nomination for State Treasurer. Kevin and Sher will be joining me to talk about their upcoming campaigns.
