Molasses, especially the dark and blackstrap varieties, is rich in antioxidants. A study published in the “Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry” in December 2012 on the potential health effects of molasses found that molasses is a good source of antioxidants. In fact, another study published in the “Journal of the American Dietetic Association” in January 2009 concluded that, based on an average intake of 130 grams per day of refined sugars and the antioxidant activity measured in typical American diets, substituting alternative sweeteners like blackstrap molasses could increase antioxidant intake to a level similar to that found in a serving of berries or nuts..
American and Britain are, as someone (possibly George Bernard Shaw) once said, two nations divided by a common language. It didn’t take America long to vary some British terms to their own devices although their tendency to put a “z” (that’ll be zed or zee, depending on how you like your rappers) in words such as organize and plagiarize is actually more traditional than the “s” we use on this side of the Atlantic.

Coca was employed from one of the great houses of minimalism, where he designed some of its greatest hits.

CharlieGoldberg is reflecting on a fruitful if frenetic Year One as a Bethel History professor. Even though his time with the History Department grads was relatively short in comparison with other faculty, he will cherish the memory of his first graduating class, and looks forward to continuing the relationships he forged with younger students next year. His summer will be a busy one, mostly spent designing two new courses for the fall: an upper level History course on Medieval Europe, and Intro to Digital Humanities, part of the new Digital Humanities major at Bethel, which the History Department has spearheaded.
Reducing the consumption of red meats will reduce the risk of contacting heart diseases, diabetes and the much dreaded cancer. New studies have come up to suggest that long term regular consumption of red meats may shorten lifespan. Too much sun exposure can cause skin damage which may lead to skin cancer.
