Remember the old days, when the most controversial part of a Super Bowl host city was whether or not snow would impact play in a cold-weather market? You know, 24 days ago?

Spring is here, and with it are signs of new development in the quad-city area - construction fencing, job site signs (complete with architectural renderings!), and semi-trailers hauling building materials through town. It's encouraging to see these indications of renewed growth, especially after such a long winter of economic stagnation. And while there are some who view any signs of new growth as only positive- but is it?

Hello Simply Fit readers. I want you to use your imagination for a moment; picture a scientist in a lab, let's call him Frank. Frank is proudly helping to nudge Mother Nature along by removing specific genetic traits from an organism (plant, animal, bacteria, virus, fungus) and then adding those traits to an entirely different organism. Imagine that you are now unknowingly eating that organism. Now imagine that our government has deemed you to be incompetent, and decided that telling you which foods have been genetically altered like this would only confuse you. Actually, you don't have to imagine it because that is exactly what has been happening for years!

I was born on the first day of the '50s. Being a New Year's baby has always made me acutely aware of the changing of the year, and New Year's resolutions have typically been fairly significant to me. I like to think that I am a man of integrity, and when I say that I will do something, I do it. A promise is a promise, even when made to myself.

Hello Simply Fit readers. Does it cost more to eat a healthy diet? According to a study by The Harvard School of Public Health, the answer is yes, and the price difference is about $1.50 per day per person. This equates to about $550 per year, and over $2,200 for a family of four. I don't know about you, but I don't have that much extra cash burning a hole in my pocket.
