Re: “The Ins and Outs

I did this for a week just to see if I could. It wasn't that bad. But I don't eat like or weigh anything close to what Artie does. I'm surprised it didn't kill him.

Re: “A Jock in the Park

Great suggestions. All you need for this is motivation. Also, being outdoors training can be fun!

Re: “The Ins and Outs

I won't be as harsh as Graham, but there are much easier (and less expensive) ways to do this (which is temporary weight loss). It is also important to at least discuss this with a nutritionist (if you do not wish to see a doctor). Yes, it is temporary but blood sugar fluctuations beyond the norm can be problematic. If this improves the subjects eating habits, then great. I do agree that temporary fasts or IF are good ideas to detoxify. For perspective, I weigh 80 pounds less than the subject (no weight to lose here, please!) but I have lost more than that to make a weight class. In 48 hours. Is it great for you? Uh, no.

Re: “The Hard Truth

You cannot lose "2 inches off your abs". Abdominal muscle (s) do not noticeably reduce. Two inches off your waist, yes. Nitpicking but this is really generic advice, which most people really should know from common sense alone. In addition, women with calves look hot. Very hot

Re: “The Ins and Outs

How long is the Portland Mercury going to allow Marjorie to keep spreading the lies of juice cleanses? I won't post up 200 links to various debunkings of every claim that cleansers have made, but this one link is a pretty good clearinghouse of those links.

But generally speaking, it's all snake oil and hokum.

Re: “The Ins and Outs

Good for Artie for trying this! He's a brave man! Eventually he'll incorporate at least some of what he learned into his life, and be happy about it. Rita Hartmann

Re: “Jazzercise or Zumba: Which Is Right for YOU?

Excellent! I work with Andy at Dance with Joy Studios & we have a stellar crew If I do say so myself & if you actually look into it - there are many, many articles about Zumba Fitness being an amazing cardiovascular & interval workout comparable to jogging - I've met so many inspiring people that have lost hundreds of pounds doing just Zumba! Amazing! Thanks for coming to our studio & shaking it with Andy!

Pretty fucked up that jazzercise doesn't have any Miles Davis or John Coltrane.

Re: “The 911 Files

This is only counting the calls that can actually get thru the 911 system. What a piece of junk with untrained monkeys on the other end.

As an ex professional fighter with years of experience, I will agree.

I think saying FM security is "highly trained" is a best somewhat of a stretch.....actually that's pretty hilarious

Re: “Fruit Punch and Rebel Girls

Someone should create rock musical from this story, in the same way that Rob Rosenthal did with the Seattle General Strike.

Carrie Brownstein...you could do this.

Re: “Fruit Punch and Rebel Girls

Thanks for this great article, I would love to see more like it, particularly the history of Coxey's army and the IWW in Portland. Portland history from the early 1900's is fascinating. These women were organizing against brutal working conditions. At the same time Oregonian owner, Henry Pittock, was building his lavish mansion in NW Portland.

Re: “Fruit Punch and Rebel Girls

Your history is off, as well. While Portland does serve as the Oregon headquarters (PDX branch formed in 1907), it has never been the "home" of the IWW. The IWW was founded in Chicago in 1905 and that's where its General Headquarters remain.
