Paleo in Maine explores a new old way of eating

The modern caveman
Portland-based fitness coach and activist David Bidler has written and self-published a new book, Paleo in Maine , exploring the ins and outs of following a "paleo" diet, an eating style popularized by physiologist Loren Cordain, based on the available research about what our caveman ancestors ate — and paring down from industrial, processed foods to the basics of meat, seafood, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.

A survivalist Christmas

Gifts to ensure you live to see the New Year — and many more!
Everything you're about to read will be especially relevant if the world as we know it ends on December 21, as the Mayan calendar (supposedly) predicts. But even if the apocalypse doesn't rain down just before Christmas, it can't hurt to be prepared for what some believe to be an inevitable coming collapse.

On being undead

Why I’m bailing from giving the gift of life
I've been an organ donor since I first got a driver's license, more than 20 years ago. But Friday morning, after getting off the phone with the New England Organ Bank, I took a black marker and crossed out that line on my license.

DIY Education

save some dough and take our classes!
In light of recent budget cuts in average Americans' bank accounts, and the increasingly skyrocketing cost of higher education, Phoenix University (we regret the acronym, but University of Phoenix was taken) has opened its (paper) doors.

Congress’s latest fix won’t give you much help

In shape for summer?

There’s still time to craft yourself into a hard-bodied soldier-athlete
Watching a CrossFit workout is reminiscent of a movie montage showing a rabble of villagers training to become the militia necessary to protect their homesteads from invading bad guys.

Kastaways and cut-ups

Safe at home with Maine's first all-mascot band
Watching the Kastaways practice, it quickly becomes clear that this band is all about the Clam. Sir Nigel the Rat might be the frontman and attention hog. Herman might be the lead-singer and actual hog. Spike Porcupine and Pete Puffin might even provide the band's true musicality.
