The Fantastical World of Hormones ***1/2 When we are feeling good, we tend to credit ourselves. We think we are healthy because we’ve unlocked the secret to eating well, sleeping well, staying active, and giving up bad habits. The truth, however, is that good health is often as lucky as it is fleeting. There are aspects of your body that are out of sight, out of mind, and beyond your control. “The Fantastical World of Hormones” is a surprisingly fun documentary that explains and explores the disturbing power that hormones have over our bodies. The story begins in Europe hundreds of years ago. I don’t want to know how they figured it out, but opera companies discovered that…

The Value of a Peanut

The Value of a Peanut

vt-world
By G. E. Shuman Some of you probably already know that I like to watch, and feed, the gray squirrels in our neighborhood. I know that many people think these little creatures are pests, in fact, I once heard a very famous person refer to them as ‘tree rats’. I don’t happen to agree with that person. I think they’re cute, and why should they not be given food? Anyway, it’s a free country, at least so far, and I like feeding the squirrels, so will probably continue to do so. I feed the squirrels peanuts, mostly. Those little guys in the gray fur coats are also good at using up stale bread, cookies, and about anything else made of carbs, that we would normally throw away. Lately a few…

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss Well I have decided today that the world is just racing past me and I am really not aware of what is happening. I know that I have told you that every day a group of women meets in Waitsfield at the Three Mountain Café for coffee, tea and snacks. And because we meet every day and as we chat and talk, we definitely make noise. So, we have been given the name of the Grandmamafia! And anyone can join us as long as they are willing to unburden themselves whenever it is necessary! Last week, or was it the week before, I don’t really know, the problem of what is happening with our drugstore was a topic of vigorous discussions. We have had a drugstore in the Valley for well ov…

Support Johnson/Weld

vt-world
Editor, The Libertarian ticket of Johnson for President and Weld for Vice President provides a huge amount of government executive experience acquired when they were governors of their states. I believe governors are the most qualified politicians to ascend to the Presidency. With this ticket we have a former governor available to assume the Presidency. Johnson and Weld believe in limited government intrusion while operating within the bounds of the Constitution, which places them in line with current public sentiment. They are fiscal conservatives and social liberals. In comparison, Clinton is a liberal who is untrustworthy, is for big government and the promotion of welfare prog…

Saudi Arabia Uncovered **** You probably would stop being friends with someone if you discovered that he is a truly horrible person, especially if you discovered that he was secretly executing people for speaking their minds and systematically subjugating every woman in his life. You would probably stop being friends with someone if you discovered that he is pure evil. Well, guess what: The United States government wouldn’t. Our relationship with Saudi Arabia proves that. At great personal risk, the British documentarians who made “Saudi Arabia Uncovered” sneaked a hidden camera into the country. What they filmed inside the Kingdom is a clear reminder of why Saudi Arabia strictly…

By Judy Reiss Last week I wrote for you to consider how important friends are in your life. Actually, I don’t know if the words should be “in your life” or “ for or too your life”. I have received a lot of comments about this particular subject! However, I think that many of you readers didn’t actually understand what I meant. Having a friend or being a friend is not specifically with handicapped or special needs. Of course, there are many people with special needs who need not only friends but do need hands on help. Unfortunately, I now fall into that category. And I have to admit that it is very difficult to accept the help that I obviously need! And very often it is not friends wh…

The Minter Record vs. The Scott Record

The Minter Record vs. The Scott Record

vt-world
Editor, Sue Minter recently said that she will “support Vermont families and businesses” as Governor. However, her record suggests otherwise. In 2009, Minter voted for the disastrous budget bill. In the middle of the Great Recession, the bill raised income taxes on Vermonters by $26 million, used one-time funds to plug recurring budget holes (which was projected to leave a $208 million shortfall), and cut spending for crucial economic development programs like workforce development, which left 2,200 Vermonters without training opportunities. She co-sponsored legislation to impose an additional 4% gas tax on Vermont consumers. Minter was also the lead sponsor on a proposed “mileage…
