Cosmic Forecast for Jan. 13-19

Last week of Capricorn … stasis will be the matrix for the unexpected, unusual and bizarre — ruled by the planet Uranus, the esoteric ruler of our next sign in line, Aquarius. The Full Moon will be in the last degree of Cancer, next Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 3:21 p.m., on the last day of Capricorn. To 90 percent (base 10s) Winter is just one looong booooring Capricoooorn. After this week let’s transcend onto base 11 (Aquarius) to get to Heaven. Heavy Spiritual changes ahead. See you next week when once again we speak. Until then, check out your year ahead at MOJOPOPlanetPower.com CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20) You’ve got two weeks to get it together to handle any weather, whether…

Top Ten Health Risks You Can Avoid Right Now

Sometimes it’s the simple things. Baby steps. At a time when many feel overwhelmed by New Year resolutions requiring us to do something, here is a list of very simple (relatively) changes that could reap major health benefits. Rather than adding things to do, avoid things on the list and 2011 will be a better year. Things to avoid, Number 10: The Sofa Wii game consoles notwithstanding, the sofa (and all things you plant your backside on) makes the list of things to avoid in 2011. Inactivity kills mind and body. A small increase in movement will reward you with health benefits. Something as mundane as fidgeting can burn calories and mean the difference between fit or fat, according to…

Triathlon training and new watches

* I had this beautiful idea that the Timex line of Ironman watches were created long ago in partnership with one of the world’s best tri-athletes who, having broken timepieces from many supposedly fine watchmakers, went to the company and said, “I need a watch that’s not afraid to work to the point of collapse. Also, it should be water-resistant to 100 meters.” Not the case. It’s just a nice bit of co-branding but I’ve still never felt comfortable wearing an Ironman watch because I’ve never completed, or even entertained the idea of, a triathlon. But if you are considering going the run, bike, swim route TotalWellness Multisport is Omaha’s first triathlon coaching center. In collaboration with The Bike Way…

Heaven Sent

I’ve got a few bon mots to jumpstart your entrée into 2011. Hope you enjoy … There are seven steps to Heaven, and they’re probably the Seven Deadly Sins transcended. Here’s the list, along with suggestions for their resolution. PRIDE: Give up foolish pride. LUST: Doesn’t it depend on what you lust for? GLUTTONY: Look at yourself naked in a mirror. ENVY: Be happy with what you’ve got. COVETOUSNESS: You don’t even own your own body, so there is no real owning when everything is on loan, right? SLOTH: Quit being so lazy … WRATH: … Or I’ll kill ya! In an ecological world, the only sin is waste — waste of an opportunity or a resource. Happy Chinese New…

2011: The Event Horizon

Predicting the future is pointless. There is no future. In fact, there is no past. Neither exists. There is only the infinite now. So-called predictions are in reality observations of current events and conditions. A common phrase demonstrates the past and the future are not real. Computer technology gave us the term “real time.” It refers to something that is happening in the “now,” such as “real time” information: real time stock quotes or real time graphics or real time simulation, and so on. The inference is clear. If “now” is real time then anything not “now” must be unreal. Simple as that. De-stress now. The very fact that the future does not at any time exist is a good…

Ten wins and a cloud of doubt

How do you win 10 games in a college football season and finish unranked? With their embarrassing 19-7 loss to a previously .500 Washington team, the Nebraska Cornhuskers might be about to find out. Heading into the Holiday Bowl the Huskers were ranked 16th and 17th respectively in the Coaches’ and AP polls; but as losers of three of their last four they could be on the outside looking in when the final polls are released. Since Bob Devaney arrived in 1962 the Huskers have never won 10 games and finished unranked, a span that includes the era where only 10 teams were ranked by the AP and UPI. Ranked or not, this season was still a success when compared…
