...with the mail, the Internet, or related factors," explained National Association of Letter Carriers President Fredric Rolando in an email to Fool. "It results from politics. In 2006, a lame-duck Congress mandated that the Postal Service prefund future retiree health benefits. No other public or private entity is required to prefund for even one year; USPS must pre-fund the next 75 years ahead and pay it all over 10 years. That annual charge of $5.6 billion is the red ink."
"When it comes down to it, you want to look to see if there is one hundred percent pumpkin in the ingredients. In some cases like in this quick bread recipe, the pumpkin ingredients that contain pumpkin is way down on the list so this is not a good source of pumpkin" said Mohning who said pumpkin pies normally are high in fat and sugar. But her recipe is healthier. It has only a half–cup of sugar
...A daunting task for even the most enthusiastic Oktoberfest participant. From the article: "Researchers at Oregon State University discovered that doses of xanthohumol, a flavonoid found in hops, improved memory and thinking in a lucky group of mice. Flavonoids are a class of compounds present in plants, known to have numerous health benefits. Last year, researchers discovered that a flavonoid found in celery and artichokes could potentially fight pancreatic cancer. The researchers treated the mice with dietary supplements of xanthohumol over the course of eight weeks. Their goal was to determine if xanthohumol could affect palmitoylation, a naturally occurring process in animals (including humans) that's associated with memory degradation. The mice then went through a series of tests—including the popular Morris water maze—to gauge whether or not the treatments had improved their spatial memory and cognitive flexibility. For the younger mice in the group, it worked. But on the older mice, unfortunately, the xanthohumol didn't seem to have any effect."
"In terms of growth and where we want to go as a club, we have several high calibre athletes competing at the national level. The goal is to get our lifters to the world stage"
