Tea Time: Everyday Elixir for Health

Tea means many things to many people. It can be a brew made with water and almost any kind of plant material. There are herbal teas from the flowers of plants, the roots of plants, the stems of plants. Tea has come to mean almost any type of beverage that results from steeping or soaking botanicals in water. That definition of tea is tea as the process. But there is a plant that is called tea, also. That’s the one our forefathers tossed over the sides of ships in Boston Harbor, an act that bequeathed its moniker to a 21st century political group. Tea was taxed at the time of our American revolution because it was valued as a…

Jays Aim to Return to High Flying Ways

There is a buzz surrounding Head Coach Greg McDermott’s second Bluejay basketball squad, and, no, the youngsters haven’t been over indulging over at the NoDo nightspots. In fact, these guys have been strictly business heading into the season, and word on the street says it could be a good one, maybe even one worthy of a toast when all is said and done.

It’s been five years since Creighton punched a ticket to the Big Dance and ten years since the Jays knocked off Florida for their last NCAA tournament win. But the players and coaches haven’t shied away from talking about the potential this year’s mix of experience, talent and fresh faces has to break that drought.

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.
