Smokers in the UK

Wednesday, May 15, 2013
By: Courtney Eaton

Each day I think I lose a few hours of my life due to the amount of smokers here in London. It is not like in the United Sates, where if you walk past a smoker you can just hold your breath and happily breathe fresh air after you pass them. If you tried to do this on the streets of London you would pass out. According to the ASH (Action on Smoking and Health) foundation , one in five British adults smoke, compared to less than a sixth of Americans.

Friday, May 10, 2013

Prawn is something I had not seen before arriving here in London. I came across it in places you would expect such as on pasta or in a stir fry or fried, but I also came across it in unexpected places such as in a salad on a sandwich and as a flavoring on crackers and chips. I wanted to see what the hullabaloo was about.

“Eat More Kale”—the Superfood behind the slogan

Monday, May 6, 2013
By: Ann Steeves

You’ve probably seen the merch around campus: stickers, t-shirts, buttons and more with the “eat more kale” slogan stamped on the center. You may have even heard of the lawsuit last year when Chick-fil-A insisted the kale slogan was too similar to their “Eat Mor Chikin” campaign (lest people start eating kale instead of chicken!). The hearty green has received a lot of attention over the past few years. It’s one of my favorite foods, and I encourage everyone to make it part of their diet.

By: Haeley Stewart

It is widely known that health care costs are extremely high. Unfortunately in order to reduce the amount of money spent on health care costs, some people go without necessary care as an attempt to cut down. However, there are other options to save money other than avoiding the care that is needed.
