Foods with the energy of oatmeal?

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:05:56 -0800

I like the energy and state of mind that eating oatmeal gives me. Are there any boxed, packaged cold cereals that have the same ingredients? What other foods generally have a similar nutritional profile in terms of energy?

Meaning of drama terms?

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 20:40:40 -0800

In Somerset Maugham's memoir, The Summing Up, he writes: "Only idolatry can refuse to see the great shortcomings in the conduct and sometimes in the characterization of Shakespeare's plays; and this is very comprehensible since, as we know, he sacrificed everything to effective situation." What do "conduct" and "effective situation" mean in this context in this book published in 1938 by this sometime-playwright?

Best way to fix bed frame with broken wheels?

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 16:43:57 -0800

The wheels on my bed frame are broken or absent. Supposing I am not at all a handy person, and the bed sits on a hardwood floor -- am I better off buying new wheels for the frame or caster protectors? What is the easiest possible thing to install that would look decent and allow the bed to be moved without damaging the floor?

Best way to start speaking about a new idea

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 11:40:53 -0800

What is the best way to start lecturing on a new self-help / philosophy type concept? Is it better to organize your own lectures first, or to join various existing conferences? If the former, does anyone have any tips or pointers to books on how best to organize and effectively publicize these lectures, and stories about how others have done it? If the latter, does anyone have any tips on how to successfully apply for a speaking slot at a conference? No blog-related tips, please.

Any recommendations for creative, vegetarian-friendly fusion type restaurants (e.g. Asian/Indian/Mexican/Middle Eastern fusion) in Los Angeles, particularly in or near Pasadena?

Will be in Austin this weekend, and haven't been before. What are some magical things to eat, see, and do?

Best health insurance plan for shuttling green card holder?

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 09:00:41 -0800

If someone is a 65+ recent green card holder with only 3 years work experience in the US and who hasn't lived continuously in the US for 5 years (but has visited every year for several months for a decade), they don't qualify for free or even paid Medicare. What is the best health insurance plan for them if they spend 5-7 months in the US, and the rest in their home country in Asia? Are they best off with an Obamacare plan, or some kind of special immigrant health insurance, or what? Thanks.

What's the learning-for-fun equivalent in diet and exercise?

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 21:23:54 -0800

I think we learn best not through rigid reading lists and assignments but when we follow our interests freeform. Yet habits, routines, calorie counting, repetitive exercises, and other finger-wagging components of "health as a necessary chore" seem to be the prevalent attitude in nutrition and physical fitness. How could one get really healthy through the fitness and diet equivalents of reading randomly for pleasure, tinkering, exploring, and problem solving for the joy of it?

What to eat/see/do in Mexico City?

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 10:50:41 -0800

I'll be in Mexico City in mid-October for three days. What do I need to see & do? Priorities: a) great vegetarian-friendly eating (both budget and upscale), including fantastic pastries/sweets/ice cream, b) magical, atmospheric, walkable neighborhoods, c) cool groups of people to meet -- expats? others?, d) the very best museums, e) anything else.
