Clippings: News on the Web gets too personal

Posted on June 2, 2011 |
By John McCright



My dad and I have a lot in common. We were both born and raised in Iowa by Roman Catholic parents. We both went to college and got post-graduate degrees. We both take pleasure in being fathers, enjoy eating peanut butter, prefer manual transmission cars.

What we don’t have in common is the news we read. And that’s not just because we have easy access to different print newspapers given the fact that he lives in Iowa and I live in Vermont.

Clippings: Stress-o-meter bobs up and down

Posted on May 26, 2011 |
By Trent Campbell



 

When it comes to stress, I am really moving up in the world. More than 20 years ago I was working for a radiology lab in California as a medical records technician. One day I happened to catch a news report that listed the least stressful jobs in America and medical records technician came in a close second to musical instrument repairman. When I heard the news I felt my blood pressure drop 25 points and watched the life line on the palm of my hand grow by an inch and a half. Kicking stress to the curb had me feeling groovy.

Clippings: Family in no hurry to empty the nest

Posted on May 19, 2011 |
By John Flowers



 

It seems like eons ago, but I can remember my parents talking about the prospect of being empty nesters with a sense of wonderment and (gasp) anticipation. My dad spoke of converting my room into storage for his gargantuan stamp collection, while mom talked about being able to travel with less baggage (could she really have been talking about me?).

All of a sudden, the clock struck “18” and I was no longer flinging open the door, waltzing to my room and shouting “What’s for dinner?” on the way up the stairs.

Clippings: The Story behind 'vehiculess' man

Posted on May 12, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



After living in China without a personal car for almost two years, I decided to give what I call the “vehiculess” life in Vermont a whirl. So far, it’s gone really well.

The biggest surprise to me has been the shock of friends and colleagues who can’t believe that it’s possible to live in rural Vermont without a car. But due to the central location of my Middlebury apartment, the rapidly expanding and improving Addison County Transit Resources (ACTR) bus lines, and my love for biking, I haven’t needed a car outside of work.

Clippings: Ballyhooed death sparks memories

Posted on May 5, 2011 |
By Andrea Suozzo



America’s enemy No. 1, dead.

It’s difficult to connect the lifeless body of a man in Pakistan to that blustery day 10 years ago, when the slow hum of a fall morning was punctuated by a whoosh and a shatter of glass, but there you have it. A photo slideshow plastered across the home page of The New York Timeson Monday told the story more concisely than words could: Osama bin Laden in 1988; the Twin Towers burning in 2001; people at Ground Zero in Manhattan on Sunday night, celebrating.

Clippings: Dogsitting duties curb pet fantasies

Posted on April 28, 2011 |
By Andrea Suozzo



Every so often I become obsessed with the idea of getting a puppy.

This wouldn’t be so bad, except that my fantasies of dog ownership rarely factor in the true rigor of that sort of project. You see, I grew up with no pets, on the fifth floor of a 100-year-old apartment building in New York City (read: no elevator).

Clippings: How does our tax burden stack up?

Posted on April 21, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

According to the heated rhetoric coming from certain quarters, United States citizens are laboring under a steadily increasing tax burden that is likely to bury us all under a mountain of debt and crush our hopes and dreams.

Clippings: Twain's dilemma and untold stories

Posted on April 14, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Few have the conceit to seriously ponder how to gauge the measure of one’s life, and you can count me among them. But no doubt it is a topic near and dear to those in the twilight of life.

Clippings: A fishy story on origin of April Fool's

Posted on March 31, 2011 |
By Trent Campbell



The history of April Fool’s Day is, according to the briefest of Internet searches, a bit muddy. Many sources trace it back to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales in the late 1300s, some back even further to when Noah released one of his doves too early, before the flood waters had receded. These claims, however, are way off. Friday marks just the 200th anniversary of April Fool’s Day. And I should know because the true origins of the holiday are, I am foolishly revealing here for the first time, linked directly to my Norwegian ancestors.

Clippings: Should U.S. education follow China?

Posted on March 24, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



Americans are up in arms because while Shanghai, China, achieved first place across the board on the 2010 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), U.S. high school students tested 31st out of 65 economic regions in mathematics, 23rd in science, and 17th in reading. President Obama referred to the issue as “our generation’s Sputnik moment” and U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan labeled it “an absolute wake up call for America.”
