A new study shows that a two-minute hot flash burns more calories than 10 minutes of jogging.
Not really. I made that up. But I've been reading so many facts, rumors and downright dirty lies about menopause lately that I thought I'd throw that one out there and see how long it takes to catch fire, so to speak.
So, you might ask, whatever possessed me to write about menopause in the op-ed section of a newspaper?

The White House believes it can win back depressed and economically stressed voters by turning President Obama into the storyteller-in-chief again. But victims of Obama's Chicago politics don't want to hear any more of his own well-worn tales of struggle and sacrifice. They've got their own tragedies to tell -- heart-wrenching dramas of personal and financial suffering at the very hands of Obama.

Drivers in California's major urban areas spend $600 to $756 more per year to operate their vehicles because of the potholes, deficient roadways and poor pavement in the state's urban communities, according to a new report from TRIP, a national transportation research group.
TRIP found freeways and arterial streets in California urban areas give motorists some of the roughest rides in the nation. San Jose tops the list with 64 percent of its major roadways rated in poor condition, and Los Angeles ranks second, with 63 percent of major roadways rated poor. Other California cities on the national Top 10 list are San Francisco-Oakland (58%), Concord (58%), San Diego (50%) and the Indio-Palm Springs area (47%).

As remarkable as their imaginations were, could William Shakespeare, Mark Twain or Charles Dickens ever have dreamt that their stories would be told on a smart phone, or in an eBook? And since international airline prices and other basic travel costs are convincing U.S. travelers to stay close to home these days, says a recent report by AAA, why not ‘escape’ to far off places without leaving your house—through digital movies, eBooks and social media.

If your boat trailer is going to spend the off-season outside exposed to the elements, Boat Owners Association of The United States has five tips to protect your investment and eliminate problems down the road: A little spray will do you: Spraying lubricants such as WD-40 on metal trailer roller assemblies, winch gears and electrical connections will keep moisture away and rust at bay. It’s also best to take care of any rust spots now on the (galvanized) metal trailer frame: sand, prime and paint. (Trust us, this will be the last thing on your mind come springtime.)

Wide range of Medicare health and drug plan options continues in 2011
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today that, on average, Medicare Advantage premiums will be 1 percent lower in 2011 than today. The majority of Medicare beneficiaries, on average, enrolled in Medicare health and prescription drug plans this year should find little or no change in their benefits in 2011, in addition to seeing more drug plans offering coverage in the prescription drug coverage gap or “donut hole.” Medicare Advantage plans project that enrollment will increase by 5 percent in 2011. And, consistent with the Affordable Care Act, beneficiaries, in most Medicare Advantage plans and Original Medicare, will gain access to preventive benefits with no out of pocket costs.

In addition, 28 percent of respondents expect their anxiety levels to increase in the coming year, compared to 8 percent who anticipate reduced stress.

Guys, it's OK to go gray this fall ... even if you're not a mad man. "Men don't want to read 'too loud' or 'too much fashion' these days," says Tom Julian, fashion industry expert and author of the recently released "Nordstrom Guide to Men's Everyday Dressing" (Chronicle Books, $17.95).
As tailored clothing for men continues to take a cue from the TV series "Mad Men" and its 1960s suit silhouette and colors, the color palette of gray is perfect for a season "focused on understated luxury," says Julian, who sees a return of the "power suit" emerging this fall in men's wardrobes.
