How To: Smoothies

July 26th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

We got on a huge smoothie kick this summer. We discovered that a dinky little blender of ours could actually make them and were making smoothies every day for a week or two. Now, while smoothies are a delicious, special treat, they are not at all difficult to make. However, if you've never made one before, you may not believe me. So, I'm writing this short little post (photos included) to tell you how to make smoothies (or, at least, how I like to make them) and to let you know about one of my favorite recipes


Arsenic in Your Apple Juice? Probably..

July 23rd, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

While the EPA limits arsenic in our drinking water to 10 parts per billion, recent tests* have found the amount of arsenic in apple juice (Mott's Apple Juice, in particular) to be 5.5 parts per billion -- 5.5 times more than what the EPA will let us drink!

Now, I thought rather than write my typical news story, I'd do something a little different today


Kids’ Lemonade Stand Shut Down by County Government..

June 20th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

This is a crazy story. Another one of these "overreaching government" stories that seem to be all the rage (for good reason). Before I get into it, I'll note that a $500 fine imposed on the children in this story has been waived and the kids have been granted permission to re-open their lemonade stand. But before someone in power came to their senses and decided that they didn't want to whole nation looking at them for such a ridiculous action. (I'll also note that these are kids of some very rich, "Washington power" families, the Marriotts (yeah, the the family behind the hotels) and the Augustines (of Lockheed-Martin). Anyway, here's the story
