Help Wanted

Some Huskers were pulling for Wisconsin when it played Michigan State the week before Michigan State came to Lincoln. But Tyler Legate wasn’t among them.

“I was hoping for a good game,” the senior fullback said on the Monday after.

A Wisconsin victory would have helped Nebraska in its quest to win the Big Ten’s Legends Division and play in the conference championship game at Indianapolis on Dec. 3 because Michigan State and Nebraska are divisional rivals.

However, regardless of the outcome of the Wisconsin game, said Legate, the Huskers would still have to beat Michigan State, which, of course, they did in impressive fashion.

Usually, Legate doesn’t pick one team over another, but when…

Transition Game

It will be a year before the University of Nebraska-Omaha men’s basketball team steps up to a full Division I schedule in the Summit League, and four years before the “transition period” is over and UNO is eligible for NCAA Tournament play, but it already feels like things are happening. The Mavs are moving, not just divisions or conferences, but locations as well.

UNO announced in late September that the team will leave Sapp Fieldhouse, the team’s home since 1949, following this season to play in the brand new Ralston Sports and Events Center, scheduled for completion in the Fall of 2012.

“The new Ralston arena will provide the team with a first-class, state-of-the-art venue in which…

These iPhone Apps are Apropos

So you just spent four hundred bucks on a new iPhone. Sounds hard to swallow if all it that you got was a cell phone. But if you look at it as a multi-purpose point-and-shoot digital camera, video camera, videophone, music and video player, web browser and paperweight, it’s not a bad deal. Further, if you consider the potential of the 500,000 apps available at the App Store, you have a personal trainer, medical advisor and life coach as well as a spiritual mentor.

There is no dearth of high-priced medical and health apps surrounding the field of conventional medicine. And the same holds true in the field of holistic lifestyles and health and here is a list…

Cosmic Forecast, Nov. 3-Nov. 9

Observe. Last winter lasted ’til June, and now here we are with Indian Summer ’til November. Six months balanced perfectly. It’s twilight on the beach. Ever seen the “green flash”? I have. Surf the Zuvuya. Next year is the Year of the Dragon, the Mayan rebirth, when the Earth is reborn within the Hunab Ku, which is the GOD of the Maya, the “Mother of All” — the galactic center of our Milky Way. Here come the Maya.

Back In Black

When will the Blackshirts be handed out?

From the beginning that question was clearly a major irritant. So over time, reporters quit asking. Bo Pelini would hand out the black practice jerseys when he saw fit, and certainly not because someone else’s interpretation of Husker tradition required it.

Besides, Blackshirts weren’t simply handed out. They had to be earned, in practice as well as in games.

Pelini’s first season, 2008, Blackshirts weren’t earned until early November. They were handed out after the 10th game, at Kansas, 11 of them.

In 2009, as near as anybody could tell, they were handed out on the Friday before the Texas Tech game, following an off-week and a victory…

Fire the Flu Shot

It’s flu season again and grocery stores, drug stores and shopping malls are looking to Big Pharma to give their bottom line a shot in the arm. Everywhere you go, you see shameless shills begging you to spend your hard-earned cash on something that is virtually useless: the flu shot.

Yes, something flu-vaccine doubters have been shouting for years has finally been noticed by mainstream researchers. In a study of 5,700 research articles by University of Minnesota scientists, it was discovered that the flu vaccine prevents disease in fewer than 60 percent of those vaccinated. Yet those who take it are still subject to the many side effects.

Take a closer look at that statistic: Sixty percent…

Cosmic Forecast, Oct. 27-Nov. 2

AUM… Happy Scorpio New Moon. Scorpio rules the golden dragon of death. More beings leave this 3rd-dimensional reality (that we share) during Scorpio than at any other sign/time. Acceptance is the first step. Then, you/we are ready for the joys of love and sex and their offspring, regeneration, BIG MONEY opportunities, intrigue, enchantment, mystery and magique! Peace and love shall conquer all — even “death,” for in truth, there are no mistakes. Everything happens as it’s meant. That’s how we give our lives meaning. If this should prove to be my last epistle, I love you all without end. AUM…
