"...The nutrient amounts used in this research are quite large, representing about two and a half times the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI, the replacement number for Recommended Dietary Allowance or RDA for evaluation of nutrient intake) of folic acid, 80 times DRI of vitamin B-12 and five times the DRI for vitamin B-6. It is doubtful that the American diet could supply these amounts without serious overconsumption of calories, so use of food supplements in this situation seems inevitable...."
"...DRI drafted its budget in May when no one could have known that a hectic summer lay in wait, what with the SB 1704 turnaround and all. The original draft proposed axing 11 DRI employees..."
"...If you build it, will they come? The seductive appeal of all this compact-city, mixed-use, sustainable New Urbanist stuff is that it claims a simple solution to the woes of American city life: We don't need to worry about sprawl if we don't sprawl. If we lived smaller, didn't separate our homes from each other, from our workplaces, from the shops and parks and nightspots, and spent more time walking and less time driving -- the way most towns and cities have been structured, in most of the world, for most of human history -- our lives would work better..."
"...Fourth of July doesn’t light many fireworks but delights in simple guitar riffs and charming melodies straight from the Kansas heartland. The band leaves big questions for others, spending much of the album unraveling mysteries like “Why Did I Drink So Much Last Night?”..."

"...Punk, and now, against all odds, Jack Boulware and Silke Tudor have gone and one-upped both of those indispensable oral histories with this endlessly fascinating and frankly addictive masterpiece of safety-pin journalism. Of key note here is the Texas/SF cross-country tweakshow that included the likes of DRI, Tales of Terror, girlfriend-killing Fang-frontman Sam "Sammytown" McBride, and the (ever infamous) SF/SoCo skin Marc Dagger..."
"...Apparently folks at the DRI aren't opposed to the suggestion – a spokesman told the daily that they already are studying wood chips, pinyon pine and peanut shells as possible energy sources. Hemp could be "another biomass," spokesman Greg Bortolin told the paper...."
"...13-14, caters to the King of the Hill audience. More than 50 country music artists from both sides of the Red River, including Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lyle Lovett & His Large Band, Robert Earl Keen, Los Lonely Boys, and the Drive-by Truckers, are slated for the five-stage hoedown..."
"...USRDA. RDI, DRI, %DV, etc.) is flawed because these recommendations cannot be applied to individuals...."
"...Meditators and non-meditators alike must have felt an odd karmic shift in the universe the day they learned that the Dripping Springs City Council had brokered a secret deal with Cypress Realty, a private investment and development company that has designs on 2,724 acres of property next door, part of the former Rutherford Ranch. Neighbors say they had no clue the deal was even being negotiated, nor were they aware, in the weeks before the document was officially sealed on April 24, that the wheels had already been greased..."
