Bo Goes Home

A reporter has to try, right? And one did.

Bo Pelini was asked (paraphrasing here) if the Nebraska football team’s trip to Ohio State this weekend would be personally special. Pelini, who’s from Youngstown, Ohio, earned four letters at Ohio State as a safety. He started for two seasons and was a co-captain as a senior in 1990.

His coaches were Earle Bruce, one season, and John Cooper, three.

The first part of the exchange went like this:

Pelini: “No.”

Reporter: “Why not?”

Pelini: “Why would it?”

Well, didn’t he have a soft spot in his heart for his alma mater (paraphrasing again)?

“No, not anymore,” said Pelini. “I’m at a…

Cosmic Forecast, Oct. 4-10

Happy October! Love is in the air (Libra is an “air” sign). Love is the way (I’ve got the proof brewin’ in me basement! I’ll show you someday). In the temple of Osiris, I’ve already learned that Hell is no longer being able to express love after having once tasted love. Therefore, what must be Heaven? Please answer me next week, when we both seek to speak once again of LOVE from above. ’Til then, my friend, let’s let Venus come between us…

Rating Meditating: Think less, feel better

It was about 1985 when I first heard of a doctor prescribing meditation to a patient to address a medical condition. I was impressed. Personally, I had already seen and experienced the benefits of meditation but for a conventionally trained M.D. to recognize both that meditation improves health and that he was unqualified to teach it and needed to refer his patient — that was impressive.

Hundreds of studies show the health benefits of regular meditation. Very simply, meditation can be a form of stress reduction and stress is implicated in nearly every disease. But the benefits of meditation go beyond that. Our mind is the most powerful tool we have. With an estimated 50,000 thoughts a day,…

Cosmic Forecast, Sep. 27-Oct. 3

Leo + Virgo = Libra. The fire that is the Sun and the love and earthly bounty of Mother Nature combine to create the winds of autumn; creating this breath of change. The first 6 signs of the zodiac begin to develop the sense of “self.” The last 6 place that self into social context, as a test on the quest to define this recently discovered self. What else? Libra represents the concept of “I and one other.” Hey, wha’cha doing for the winter? (…With humility.)

One Year Later

The answer was obvious, really. Was it the low point of his career?

“Yeah, I think so,” Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez said on Monday.

“It” was a reference to last season’s 48-17 loss at Wisconsin, the Huskers’ first conference game as a member of the Big Ten. Martinez threw three interceptions during a 5-minute-plus stretch that included the first play from scrimmage in the second half.

Nebraska led 14-13 when the stretch began, and trailed 34-14 as a result of it.

So yes, Martinez probably hasn’t endured any more adversity than that.

But a year has passed, no pun intended, and Martinez has learned a good deal since then. The numbers reflect it. In…

CFLs: When a Green Light Means Stop

The Feds have backed off a little on the mandate that would have made the old-fashioned incandescent light bulb a thing of the past. In 2007, Congress passed a law that would have taken regular light bulbs out of the marketplace by now. But last year, Congress didn’t repeal the law. They did the next best thing: They defunded it. By removing funding to enforce the law that would have banned regular 100-watt bulbs, they effectively said the law exists but it won’t be enforced.

Buddy, can I get a light? Compact fluorescent lights or CFLs, were going to be the answer to energy independence. Federal law stipulated that all light bulbs must use 30 percent less energy…
