The Return of Baseball

Pauli’s isn’t Pauli’s anymore. The old bar on an old stretch of Leavenworth Street used to be a hub of activity during the College World Series. Sometime in the early-1980s the ESPN talking heads made it their home base following telecasts and with that the crowds came. It never made much sense. The bar wasn’t anywhere near Rosenblatt Stadium but people kept coming, swayed by the chance to rub shoulders and bend elbows with the likes of Harold Reynolds or Dan Patrick.

Like Omaha itself, Pauli’s was a little rough around the edges and far from conventionally beautiful but it was friendly. It was the CWS distilled down to what could be the tournament’s log line: Big-time baseball,…

Cosmic Forecast, June 21-June 27

Happy summer! Read Cancer to find the answer…

d CANCER (6.22-7.22)  Food’s the answer ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬— but what is it you/we truly seek, when you/we eat? You’ll find out after these next 4 weeks. June 19th marked a Gemini/Cancer Cazimi New Moon. Anything far out happen just before noon? Replay, recalculate and reiterate on July 18th, around 11 p.m., during a 2nd Cazimi New Moon, which takes place on your Cancer/Leo cusp. These Moons denote 2 very special moments (from the 19th to the 19th), with all the magique you can muster in between. In a short month you’ll know what I/we mean. Gather from these experiences. Magique is…

Athletic Supporters

The body of a pro athlete is his or her tool. If it doesn’t work, they don’t work. Same in college athletics. At major universities, scholar/athlete play big-time sports because it’s important to them. Maintaining a finely tuned piece of equipment covers all the bases, from nutrition to skills, mental acuity to physical rehabilitation after injury. And if an athlete — at any level — can gain an edge, well, that’s why they keep score. It’s about competing.

Gold is gone. Rope-a-dope is in. Remember the days of baseball bling? Like a holdover from a bad disco movie from the ‘80s, baseballers were often seen with twenty pounds of solid gold draped across their chest, inside their shirt.…

Cosmic Forecast, Jun. 14-20

The breath of spring (Gemini) is about to blow itself away (cute trick?). We’ll see (feel) what the waters of life (Cancer) have to say (deal), as the winds of change (steal) surrender to the (real) sweet heat of a summer beat, and the livin’ is “eeeeee z”… Stay nice as ice, cool as a jewel, and diamonds all the timin’ (-’s everything). Tiptoeing through the tulips with your mint juleps. The Gemini/Cancer New Cazimi Moon is on the 19th, Tuesday morning, at 10:02, Omax time. It’s a hot and heavy psychic power sway — a half an hour either way. Summer starts at sunset on Wednesday, the 20th. Es verdad! -Miguel Jose

Let’s Talk E. coli — Again

Last week America heard more news out of Atlanta and the Center for Disease Control about another deadly E. coli outbreak. They say this time that it’s a different strain of Escherichia coli, one labeled O145. Usually CDC blames a serotype named O157:H7 but this time O145 is getting the headlines. What’s good about that is that the American public may finally realize not all E. coli is the same and that the most dangerous varieties are the unintended consequence of human hubris.

It’s important to know that usually, E. coli is natural, beneficial bacteria that live harmlessly inside all of us. It exists primarily in the gut of warm-blooded animals and for humans, that’s a good thing…

c GEMINI (5.21-6.21)  I hear your mama calling. Mercury, your ruler, just entered the sign of Cancer ’til June 25th. Domestic concerns, picnics, cleaning up the pad, childcare, changing the “diapers” of humanity and friends, water meditations, being overly sensitive, being a “crybaby” and whining to get what you want all lead to communicating with your mom. Your…

Blitzing for Bruno

Yoda called it the Force. The Kalahari ¡Kung call it num. The Chinese term is chi. Continentals and readers of Nobel Laureate Henri Bergson would call it élan vital. In Japanese, it’s ki; Sanskrit, prana; in Hawaiian, mana. Einstein could have called it the unified field. And in his lectures, Bruno Gröning called it “the Heilstrom.”

No matter the name, the concept is the same: a singular, all-encompassing energy force animates and imbues all things with life. Tellingly, conventional medicine has no name for it.

In American medical circles, acknowledging a Higher Force, is outside the normal frame of reference. Get a sniffle and the first thing we do is turn to drugs. Our faith in natural…
