Asthma, allergies and tree sex: what’s the link?

Welcome to spring! For many people this is their favorite time of year, for many others it is a miserable time of year. According to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 27 million Americans, both adults (18.9 million) and children (7.1 million), have been diagnosed with asthma. Of those, more than half also suffer from allergies. Asthma and allergies are triggered by many factors such as cigarette and wood smoke, dust mites, pets, molds, certain foods, strong odors and of course plant pollen.

GOP reboot: A ‘Grand Open Party?’

Will Republican leaders listen to a bruising new internal report that calls for more minority outreach? First, they have to convince their party's right-wingers to avoid making younger and non-white voters feel about as welcome as a cheeseburger at a vegan buffet.

Why the sequester was so important

The recent experience with the "sequester" in Washington, D.C., revealed in many ways what is wrong with Washington. But it also contains a silver lining that I hope bodes well for the future.

Does drinking coffee make you a grownup?

Recently, I've had to go through some big adjustments due to the fact that I now have a "grown up job." I was kind of under the impression that once I landed one of those I would start to feel, you know, like an actual adult. And I mean I guess I do in the sense that I have deadlines and more responsibilities and a paycheck but other than that… no, not really. It's been a hard adjustment, to be honest. Having to wake up while it's still dark outside, going to bed while it's ...

Thirty years of personal computing

Technically speaking, the personal computer -- usually referred to as a desktop computer -- was born as a programmable calculator in 1965, the year of my birth. During the 1970s, Hewlett Packard introduced a BASIC computer that could fit on a desk. It included a keyboard, small one-line display and a printer. The Xerox Alto, that (according to Wikipedia) inspired the Apple Macintosh, came along in 1973. IBM had a small CRT display computer two years later.

Military Monday - March 18, 2013

In an old family bible that my brother owns, there is a story of how our great-great-grandfather escaped from a Union prison. He was a Confederate soldier, captured and sent to a prison in Illinois. He somehow escaped, stole an Indian canoe and floated down the Mississippi River to an area between Arkansas and Mississippi. He got out on the Arkansas side and tried to swim across and nearly drowned. He was finally able to cross the river with the help of some others and walked to Baird, Miss.

Holding back on scathing emails

Many years ago, I adopted the "wait till the next day" philosophy regarding letters I wrote to people which were penned in -- how shall we put this? -- the heat of battle.

Voices across the decades

On the afternoon of February 15, 2013, the famed Beard Collection began to arrive at the Camden Archives and Museum. On March 5, the last large load arrived around 1 p.m. and the archives was a beehive of activity, with police and firemen carrying collection items in from trucks, cars and vans. As our new curator of collections, Rickie Good, and I checked items in, Mr. Beard told stories and related anecdotes about each one while it was being photographed by the police camera man. This significant collection represents many voices through the years it spans -- from 1514 to ...

Fruitful fire

When I was young, I remember arriving home to find Mom's face was awash with concern and intent. She told me there was a fire down in the pinewoods below the neighborhood. We were evacuating. I remember feeling intrigued by it all. The seriousness never set in until some of my closest friends lost their homes to the flames.
