Recruiting trail cools as the coaching search gets hot

All is fair in love and recruiting. If Bob Devaney didn’t say that he should have. The Irish Orator of Stadium Street — that name hasn’t quite caught on like I had hoped — would’ve delivered it with a wink and a laugh, charming the pens right out of reporters’ hands. That’s not really Bo Pelini’s approach. On Feb. 2 Pelini signed his best recruiting class to date, a fact that should have been big news given Nebraska’s inert end to the 2010 season. Instead, the typically gruff Pelini press conference focused on the bigger news leaked from Indiana’s head coach Kevin Wilson. Wilson let slip that defensive backs coach Corey Raymond had left the Hoosiers to take the same…

Neptune's been in Aquarius for these last 13 "lucky" years, Mars is half way through Aquarius on its transit from mid-January through February 22, when it dives hand-in-hand-in-hand-in-hand with the Sun and Mercury conjunct Neptune into the Ocean of Pisces.

High on Grass: The Meat We Eat

“Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn. The sheep’s in the meadow, the cow’s in the corn.” Stop and think why Little Boy Blue was called to keep the cows out of the corn. Any farmer or rancher will tell you: If a cow eats its fill of corn, it dies. Because a cow, like all ruminant animals, was not designed by nature to eat corn — or any grain, for that matter. Corn will kill a cow as surely as Roundup kills plants. We’ve brought this topic to the table many times in the past and recently published research brings it to our attention again. Good for you. The 2011 British Journal of Nutrition, Volume 105, just published a…

Cosmic Forecast for Jan. 27-Feb. 2

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year of the Cat, Feb. 3, falling (as the Chinese New Year always does) the day after the New Moon in Aquarius, which is at 8:31 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2, taking us from the wild, intractable, ferocious El Tigre to the domesticated, aloof, serene La Gata. Get the message? Time to take it home. Here kitty, kitty … — MojoPoPlanetPower.com AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19) It’s your turn to burn. Any sunshine is from your sign. You are the Water Bearer, the sharer of the electric light-blue hue of altruistic lightning/electricity hurled from the third eye (an “enlightened” pineal gland, the brain of the brain) toward deeper, scientifically relevant TRUTHS. Invention, intuition, enlightenment…

Flu Season: It Doesn’t Add Up — and other news

It’s a topic visited here many times. But a recent article in The Atlantic, titled “Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science: MUCH OF WHAT MEDICAL RESEARCHERS CONCLUDE IN THEIR STUDIES IS MISLEADING, EXAGGERATED, OR FLAT-OUT WRONG,” has led us down this path once more. I’ve just spent hours scanning the web for a shred of … truth? We’re in the midst of what the techno-pharmaceutical-industrial complex calls “flu season” and I’m trying to get to the bottom of things. I’m insulted by the constant number-waving in mainstream media that claims 36,000 people die from influenza each year in the United States. We already know that the Centers for Disease Control’s own statistics confirm that the figure is inflated by a…

Sports talk stations swap formats

Who’s ready for an early January weekend jaunt to frosty Winnipeg next year? If you’re a UNO hockey fan that trip could be a reality as the Mavs and the University of North Dakota are reportedly close to finalizing a deal to play a game in Manitoba’s capital city Jan. 7, 2012. I’ll confess to not knowing much about Winnipeg other than it’s about three hours north of Grand Forks and therefore likely colder than Omaha, but I did spend some time on the city’s tourism website to cull some valuable facts. Winnipeg is the coldest city in the world with a population greater than 500,000 meaning more people consciously choose to be miserable for months there than anywhere else.…

Cosmic Forecast for Jan. 19-26

Welcome into Aquarius, the sign of the unexpected, unusual and bizarre. To 90 percent of humanity the season of winter is just one loooong boooring Capricoooorn that lasts until spring. Ten percent of humanity responds to the Uranian vibration and half of them (will) mess it up. Otherwise the other 90 percent would jump on board — ’cause the unusual, eccentric and bizarre is soooo much mooore fun! MojoPoPlanetPower.com AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19) Expect everything to light up celestially. Jupiter and your esoteric ruler, the planet Uranus, are conjunct all of 2011. Now in the final degrees of Pisces (the Dreamer) and finishing 2011 retrograding back to 0 degrees Aries (the Initiator) by next New Year’s, so you can start…
