I was asked to “offer-up” some personal information for this page, so you, the reader, can learn more about me (note-taking is recommended as there may be a quiz at the end). I was born a poor black man, no wait, that’s Navin R. Johnson from “The Jerk” (favorite movie). Actually, I was born an Air-Force brat at the Air-Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. In typical military fashion, we moved almost every year until my father retired from the service. I spent almost all of my “growing” years in Wisconsin. Stops along the way include Waukesha, Sheboygan Falls, Eau Claire, and La Crosse, although most of the time was in Green Bay. Yes, I’m a Packer fan. At one time, I lived about six blocks from Lambeau Field, and I went to Vincent T. Lombardi Jr. High. I now have dogs named Vince, and Lombardi, only because my wife refused to let me grace my baby daughter with the middle name of Lombardi... High school was followed by a year at UW-River Falls where I did everything but go to class (it’s no wonder I was asked not to return for my Sophomore year. The letter read something like, "We suggest you pursue something different at this point in time..."). From there, it was off to Brown Institute in Minneapolis to “study” radio (like there’s a lot to study!) For me, the radio road has gone through Carroll, Algona, and Emmetsburg (all in Iowa) before my stay here in Sioux City, where I’ve been since 1998.
-I bleed Green & Gold, so I enjoy this link a lot. You might too...
-The Roller Dames kick ass. Check out the gals here!
-The nickname is Chopper. So, of course, I fit in with bikers, and some of the nicest ones I've ever met belong to the Independent Riders for Children and Charities. They ride all the time, plus do great things for their communities. Their motto is 'Helping out where we can, doing what's right, making an impact'. They live up to it too! There's an event coming up soon, so check them out...
A new study released by Intel finds that in just one internet-minute 204-million e-mails are sent, and 47-thousand apps are downloaded. In just one minute Amazon makes 83-thousand-dollars in sales, and 20-million photos are viewed. Additionally, the study finds that in 60 seconds, six-million Facebook pages are viewed, and the world watches 1.3-million YouTube videos. Intel says it's working on developing new networking equipment in order to deal with the expected rise in traffic on networks, as it's predicted that by the year 2015 there will be more networked devices than there are people in the world.
LABELS THAT TRANSLATE CALORIES INTO WALKING DISTANCE COULD HELP PEOPLE DIET: An online survey finds that people who see just how many miles they'd have to walk to burn off that cheeseburger are less likely to eat it. Researcher Anthony Viera and his colleagues conducted on online survey of just over 800 people in which participants were presented with one of four different menus. One of the menus provided only calorie counts, another supplemented this with information about the number of minutes none would need to walk to burn those calories, the third showed the calorie numbers plus the distance required to walk them off, and the fourth showed no nutritional data. It was found that those who viewed a menu, which included physical-activity information, ordered on average 200-calories less than those who saw the menu with no nutritional information. One expert says, "This is a huge window of opportunity for the public health community to provide consumers with useful information about calories."
