Global warming claim incomplete

In your paper's "Noted and passed" feature, December 23, 2013, I discovered that "the planet is heating up at an alarming rate." This surprised me for global temperatures have remained remarkably unchanged on a trend basis for the past 16 years.

These negative factors get precious little attention because ...

Exercise benefits

The beginning of a new year is a traditional time for people to try to improve parts of their lives with which they're not satisfied. New year's resolutions aren't always kept, but they're a step in the right direction, and they often revolve around people determining to take better care of themselves. It's long been know that exercise cuts the risk of heart disease and a host of other physical ailments, including diabetes. Researchers are now finding that fitness has a long-term effect upon brainpower and can play a crucial role in staving off dementia.

Exotic lands

Being married to my husband was never boring! During the past 30 years, he planned trips for us to England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, France, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Mexico, Argentina, Greece and other usual tourist spots.
