Do women speed more often than men?

Here's an e-mail from Christine....

Driving on the 103 to work every day I have noticed something that seems odd to me. I have noticed most of the people exceeding the speed limit are women. Is this the norm??

Here's the thing...is there a TV show on the air right now that we're going to be watching ten or twenty years from now? Which current TV show will stand the test of time?

Is butting out littering?

Here is a question, sent to our e-mail, from one of our listeners.

Take a look and let us know what you think?

I take Exit 2 into work every day and am amazed at the number of cigarette butts lying on the roadside. I don't understand why smoker's don't find it acceptable to butt them in their vehicle ashtray, but appear to think it's perfectly fine to toss them out the window for all to see, and for someone else to clean up (IE: Community Service / Public Works).

My question(s) do other people find this as mind boggling and offensive as me? Is tossing cigarette butts out the window littering? If yes, should offenders be fined?

Freshman 15 tips

College freshmen have a special notoriety: A full 15 pounds named for them.

The Freshman 15 refers to weight gained during the first year away from home. But the extra pounds can be avoided if you follow these tips from Brook Benten Jimenez. She's a certified group fitness instructor, personal trainer and nutritionist.

Her tips will work for everyone, even if your freshman year was so long ago that you scarcely remember how many pieces of pizza you ate to win a nightly dorm contest.

1. Ix-nay on late-night acking-snay: Pizza can be delivered at all hours. And having just a slice – well, maybe just two – when everyone else is noshing is more than tempting. But if you must stay up late and are hungry, reach for fruit or something healthy. Which leads us to ...

2. Get enough sleep. "Sleep loss is associated with an increase in appetite," Ms. Jimenez says. "Without adequate amounts of sleep, your metabolism slows down and you tend to move slower and be less active."

3. Make exercise part of your juggling routine. You have lots of balls in the air: Classes, study, socializing. Exercise needs to go on the calendar, too. Even if it is just 20 minutes a day.

4. Be on portion patrol. Lots of dorms offer all-you-can-eat, help-yourself buffets. Don't get carried away; there will be more food at the next meal. Allow yourself one reasonable plate of food.

5. Be mindful. "Remember: Everything you eat has to go somewhere," Ms. Jimenez says. "Every morsel of food has calories, and those calories don't disappear after melting in your mouth." The food may be used as energy or released as bile or used for cell function or stored as fat. "But it does not disappear."

A Complaint Free World!

Here's an email we received recently. We're giving it a try. If you decide to do the same, let us know how it goes.


Good morning!

I just wanted to let you guys know about this fantastic idea a man in the States had. He has started a complaint-free movement. It is a very simple idea with a very simple solution. You wear a bracelet and every time you catch yourself complaining, gossiping, or criticizing, you switch it to the other wrist. This includes talking, emailing, muttering under your breath, etc. The only thing that is 'free' is thinking the complaint, gossip, and critism. The goal is to go 21 days IN A ROW without complaining, gossiping, or criticizing. He says it takes an average of 4-8 months to go the 21 days. I've been doing it now for two weeks and it is amazing how it has started to change my thinking. I rarely try to 'one-up' people with my complaints, and I tend to catch myself before the complaint comes out of my mouth. I haven't made it one complete day yet without complaining, but I complain a lot less than I used to.

Check out his website (I've included it at the top of this email) for more info on it. You don't have to buy the book or the bracelets, just watch the videos about it and find something that you can move from wrist to wrist, or pocket to pocket, or whatever. He is hoping to have the day before Thanksgiving designated as a national complaint-free day in the States, and I think it would be fitting if we could try to get that going here.

An avid listener - love you guys! You make my mornings.

Atlantic Canadian Wealth

The following news story offers some food for thought. Feel free to leave a comment.

HALIFAX - A new study on debt, financial security and the wealth gap in Atlantic Canada suggests things have grown worse for the region's poor over the past decade.The GPI Atlantic report says there is a very uneven distribution with the richest 10 per cent of Atlantic households owning about half the region's wealth while the poorest 40 per cent together own only 3.6 per cent.
The authors say one-quarter of Atlantic Canadian households have no wealth at all, since their debts, on average, are at least as great as their assets.
The region has at least 11,000 millionaire households.The study says there's also an ongoing shift of wealth out of the region with households in Atlantic Canada experiencing the fastest growth in debt in Canada during the six-year period between 1999 and 2005. Consumer bankruptcies have also risen sharply in the region to levels much higher than in the rest of the country.
