If you've been on the Internet for a number of years and have refused to buy the latest and greatest things that have come out, you might currently have an unsupported operating system. Specifically, on April 8, 2014, Microsoft ceased support of the XP operating system, which first came out in 2001. While Microsoft started warning consumers a few years ago, many people have been unwilling to upgrade to the next operating system (Vista and then Windows 7). With XP support gone, you'll no longer have security updates. Microsoft won't fix new system vulnerabilities, ever, and criminals know this. At the same time, if you don't want Windows 8.1 (many people don't), you still have options: •Upgrade your computer to Windows 7, if you can. This might not be an option if your computer is too old to support the program. Unless you're highly skilled in wiping hard drives, you're better off handing your machine over to a repair technician for the installation. Here's the dilemma many have to face: XP is a 32bit program. Windows 7 is a 64-bit program. You can't simply install Windows 7 over XP and expect the upgrade to go well. The hard drive has to be wiped (erased), with all your programs erased and your files saved elsewhere. Then, after installation, all your software and programs need to be reinstalled. (Yes, there is a Windows 7 32-bit version, but you're better off avoiding that.) If you have a techie do this upgrade, it going to cost you some money for all the hours spent feeding software into your computer. •Buy a new computer. At this point, you'll have a hard time finding a new system with Windows 7 on it. Everything in stores is now up to Windows 8. Look for one with downgrade rights to Windows 7. •Buy a refurbished computer with a new copy of Windows 7 64-bit on it and install your software yourself. All in all, this might be your cheapest option. Notice there's no recommendation to jump in with a new computer and Windows 8.1, which is coming out this month with fixes to Windows 8. Unless you're going all the way to touch screen and are up for a whole new experience and steep learning curve, Windows 8.1 might be too much of a leap.

Simple ways to stop overeating hunger, the less likely you are to make healthy choices, including eating healthy portions, when you do eat. Even a low-calorie, healthy snack like Greek yogurt or a piece of fruit four to five hours after a meal can sate your appetite and prevent you from overeating when you sit down for your next meal. • Eat breakfast. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition proved that mom was right when she told you breakfast was the most important meal of the day. The study examined roughly 900 adults and found that those who ate more carbohydrates, fat and protein in the morning were more likely to eat less over the course of the day than those who saved their biggest meals for lunchtime or dinner. Many men and women skip breakfast thanks to hectic mornings dominated by getting the kids ready for school and rushing to work. If time is limited in the morning, keep cereal or instant oatmeal at the office and eat breakfast as you catch up on email or plan your workday. • Find time for fiber. Fiber is another friend to people who want to stop overeating. Fiber not only helps people feel full faster but also helps them feel full for longer periods of time. The body needs time to process a meal that's rich in fiber, so you are less likely to feel full shortly after eating a meal that's high in fiber. In addition, high-fiber foods tend to be high-volume as well, so you will fill up on them without eating lots of calories. That's a benefit to people looking to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. Overeating is a hurdle many people must clear as they attempt to adopt healthier lifestyles. But a few simple tricks makes it easy to avoid overeating without fighting constant feelings of hunger.

Many people strive to adopt healthier lifestyles. A lifestyle that includes routine exercise and a healthy diet can vastly improve quality of life and reduce a person's risk for various ailments. Though many people find exercise gets easier the more they do it, that's not always the case when altering their diet. Adapting to a healthy diet and smaller portions is a challenge, and many people find themselves overeating as a result. Some people overeat because they're hungry, while others are simply accustomed to eating large meals. Regardless of why a person overeats, it's important that people looking to adopt healthier lifestyles avoid consuming more food than their body needs. The following are a few simple ways men and women can curtail their eating habits so they aren't going overboard at mealtime. • Stay hydrated. Some people overeat because they mistake the symptoms of dehydration for hunger. It's easy to make that mistake, as the symptoms of dehydration mimic those of hunger. For example, when a person is thirsty, his or her mouth is dry. Eating can temporarily relieve dry mouth, but that does not necessarily mean a person's mouth was dry because he or she was hungry. Instead of immediately responding to perceived hunger symptoms by eating, drink a glass of water. If the symptoms subside within 10 minutes, then you were likely dehydrated and not hungry. Staying hydrated by drinking water throughout the day can reduce the likelihood that you will confuse dehydration with hunger, which reduces your risk of overeating. • Eat when you're hungry. The symptoms of hunger tend to present themselves within five hours of eating a balanced meal. Ignoring these symptoms because you don't feel as though five hours is a sufficient interval between meals is a mistake. The longer you ignore

Studies have shown that men and women who eat a healthy breakfast as part of their daily routine are less likely to overeat throughout the rest of the day.

The Masters Tournament is one of the most prestigious events is rife with tradition. Among the more notable traditions is the awarding of the green jacket to the tournament champion. The green jacket has been awarded to the tournament champion since 1949, and it remains one of the more recognizable awards or trophies in all of professional sports. Another tradition of the Masters is the Champions Dinner, which takes place the Tuesday before each tournament.

The Masters Tournament, commonly referred to as The Masters, is one of the most prestigious events in professional golf. The first of the sport's four major tournaments to be played each year, the Masters is held every April at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. Started by Augusta's founders, investment banker Clifford Jones and legendary golfer Bobby Jones, the Masters

Only past Masters champions and a select group of Augusta National board members are eligible to attend the dinner. Though the Masters is one of the most popular sporting events in the world, controversysurrounding Augusta National Golf Club arose in 2002 when Martha Burk, then the chair of the National Council of Women's Organizations, accused the club of sexism due to the

Key moments in NASCAR history One of the most popular sports in the United States, NASCAR has a rich history steeped in tradition. The following are some of the more important moments in the history of stock car racing's governing body. •December 1947: By late 1947, stock car racing was growing in popularity, and tracks were struggling to handle the crowds and cars. Recognizing this and other issues, including less than trustworthy promoters who would often leave events before paying drivers, facing his sport, Bill France, Sr. organized a meeting in Daytona Beach, Fla. France, Sr. gathered owners, drivers and even mechanics at the Streamline Hotel, setting the foundation for NASCAR. Within months, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing would form. •February 1948: Behind the wheel of his Ford Modified, Red Byron wins the first sanctioned NASCAR race on a beach course in Daytona. •September 1950: Darlington International Raceway becomes the first asphalt super speedway to host a NASCAR event. Driving a 1950 Plymouth owned by France, Sr., Johnny Mantz won the 500mile event. •July 1952: The first NASCAR competition to take place outside of the United States is held on a dirt track in Stamford Park, Ontario, Canada. The 200-mile event was won by Buddy Shuman and marked the only victory of Shuman's career. •February 1959: The first Dayton 500 is held at what is now the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. The event, which remains the sport's most prestigious race, coincided with the opening of the speedway. Lee Petty won the race, which featured a prize of just more than $19,000. By

2013, when Jimmie Johnson won his second Daytona 500, the winner's purse had ballooned to more than $1.5 million. •December 1963: Wendell Scott wins a NASCAR race at Jacksonville Speedway, becoming the first African-American in NASCAR history to win a premier division race. •November 1979: Richard Petty, the son of inaugural Daytona 500 winner Lee Petty, wins his seventh series championship, a record at the time. Dale Earnhardt would later tie Petty, and both men still hold the record today. •February 1998: Racing in his twentieth Daytona 500, Dale Earnhardt wins his first one, snapping a 59-race winless streak in the process. •2003: Brian France, the grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France, Sr., takes over as American CEO and Chairman of NASCAR, taking over the position from his father. •2004: The Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup is announced. This announcement gave the sport a postseason similar to a playoff. Since 2008, this has been referred to as the "Chase for the Sprint Cup," a name changed made necessary by the merger of NEXTEL and Sprint. •November 2009: Jimmie Johnson becomes the first driver to win four consecutive championships. Johnson would add to his legend the following season by winning his fifth consecutive championship and then again in 2013 by winning his sixth overall championship, leaving him one shy of the all-time record of seven championships held by Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt.

Storage tips offer pet owners good food for thought Put your hand up if you routinely check expiration dates on the food you buy. For many of us, that is just common sense. So, too, is properly storing food once we get it home. If you're a pet owner, though, can you say the same for the food you buy for your dog or cat? Correct storage of pet food is extremely important to keep it fresh and to ensure the well-being of your pet. Here's how: • Start by choosing a high quality pet food for your dog or cat. For example, companies like Petcurean, which makes GO! and NOW FRESH, ensure their products meet very high manufacturing standards and that recipes are crafted using the highest quality ingredients. • Store kibble in a cool, dry location. Avoid areas like basements or open containers where condensation or temperature changes can encourage mold growth. Canned food should be covered and can be kept in the refrigerator for three to five days. It also can be frozen, but move it into ice cube trays or another freezable container first. • Avoid storing pet food in reusable plastic containers, unless the food is left in the bag. Plastic containers may not be airtight and the material itself can absorb fat and oils, increasing the risk of food becoming rancid. • Refrigerate or discard any uneaten canned food immediately. • Store pet food away from young children and from pets themselves. Don't allow pets near an open or empty bag of food, which can be a safety concern. • Check best before dates on pet food, which are sometimes found on the back of the bag or on the bottom of the can.

Childhood leukemia is most common cancer for children, teens Though it is the most common cancer among children and teens, childhood leukemia is a rare disease. So says the American Cancer Society, which notes that roughly 75 percent of leukemias among children and teens are acute lymphocytic leukemia, or ALL. When a child has ALL, his or her leukemia begins to form in the lymphoid cells of the bone marrow. ALL is most common among children between the ages of two and four and is more

common in boys than girls. Acute myelogenous leukemia, or AML, is another type of acute leukemia and accounts for much of the other cases of leukemia in children. AML starts in the myeloid cells where white and red blood cells and platelets are formed. In rare instances, a child may have a hybrid type of leukemia, often referred to as a "mixed lineage leukemia," where cells have features of both ALL and AML. Children with

this hybrid form of leukemia are often treated as if they have ALL, and that course of treatment is typically effective. While manyadult cancers are linked to lifestyle choices or environmental risk factors, childhood cancers do not have a strong link to such factors. Many childhood cancers can be traced to gene changes inside cells, and these changes often occur early in life or even before a child is born.

Strange, but true

By Samantha Weaver

It was Benjamin Franklin who made the following sage observation: "It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it." If you're like 87 percent of American adults, you use the Internet. The only thing I find surprising about this statistic is that there are 13 percent of adults who don't use it. In a recent survey, more Americans said they would have a hard time giving up the Internet than said they'd have a hard time giving up TV. Those interested in maritime history (and practically everyone else, for that matter) are familiar with the story of the Titanic, which struck an iceberg and sank on the night of April 15, 1912. It's interesting to note, though, that in 1898 a book called "Futility," by Morgan Robertson, described an almost identical scenario: The ship in the novel was called Titan, and, like the Titanic, it was trying to break a speed record for crossing the Atlantic. The Titan was declared to be unsinkable, and it didn't have enough lifeboats for all the passengers. On its fictional voyage in the month of April, it struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean and sank, resulting in the deaths of almost all the passengers. In Ireland, the police do not carry firearms. Their only weapons are batons and pepper spray. In 1943, then-chairman of IBM, Thomas Watson, went on the record saying, "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." If you're afraid of sharks, you might want to consider this tidbit: Every year, more people are killed by bees than by sharks.

Moments in time By The History Channel

On April 27, 1667, blind poet John Milton sells the copyright to his masterpiece "Paradise Lost" for a mere 10 pounds. Once printed, the poem was immediately hailed as a masterpiece of the English language. In 1671, he wrote "Paradise Regained," followed by

"Samson Agonistes." He died in 1674. On April 25, 1859, at Port Said, Egypt, ground is broken for the Suez Canal, an artificial waterway intended to stretch 101 miles across the isthmus of Suez and connect the Mediterranean and the Red seas. When it opened, the Suez Canal was only 25 feet deep, 72 feet wide at the bottom, and 200 feet to 300 feet wide at the surface. Fewer than 500 ships navigated it in its first year of operation. On April 24, 1863, the Union army issues General Order No. 100, which provided a code of conduct for Federal soldiers and officers when dealing with Confederate prisoners and civilians. It became the standard for international military law. On April 22, 1915, German forces shock Allied soldiers along the Western front by firing more than 150 tons of lethal chlorine gas against two French colonial divisions. The Germans, perhaps as shocked as the Allies by the devastating effects of the poison gas, failed to take full advantage, and the Allies held most of their positions. On April 23, 1961, Judy Garland plays Carnegie Hall in what has been called "the greatest night in showbiz history." The concert took place on the one night a week that Broadway performers have off -Sunday night -- and the audience was therefore a friendly one. On April 26, 1977, Studio 54, the most famous nightclub in the world, opens its doors. The venue became famous for openly and shamelessly excluding all but the most chic, famous or beautiful patrons. Studio 54's golden era lasted less than three years. On April 21, 1980, Rosie Ruiz, age 26, finishes first in the women's division of the Boston Marathon. Eight days later Ruiz was stripped of her victory after race officials learned she jumped into the race about a mile before the finish line. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc

How to barbecue the perfect steak The steakhouse is a family favourite for its flavourful cuts of beef, so to save money, the grilling experts at Broil King are here to show us how to re-create those same savoury steaks on our own gas barbecues. Here are their tips. • If it doesn't sizzle, it's not hot enough. Preheat your grill to at least 450o for great sear marks and steakhouse quality results. • Season the grill: a thin coating of oil on a hot grill both protects the grill surface and keeps your food from sticking. A refillable oil mister is an easy way to do this. Tip: Always turn the burners to low before spraying oil; never use non-stick sprays with aerosol since they are flammable. • Marinate your steak for 30 minutes to 2 hours (most cuts) to infuse complementary flavours into the meat. • Any sweet or sugary barbecue sauce should be applied in the last two minutes on the grill, or after the meat is removed. These sauces burn easily and can ruin a great steak. • Try a compound butter: first soften the butter to room temperature and then mix in the flavouring of your choice, such as blue cheese, sundried tomato or cheddar & jalapeno. Top the hot steak with a pat of this butter and watch the flavour melt all over the grilled

meat. • Choose your weapon: don't pierce your steak, use a good set of tongs to turn them. The more you poke holes, the more flavour and tenderness escapes. • Let it rest: cutting into a steak right off the grill lets juices escape onto the plate. Let any steak rest for 5 minutes before serving. The juices will settle evenly throughout the steak, giving a more tender, flavourful and enjoyable dining experience.

Blue Cheese Compound Butter 2/3 cup butter, at room temperature 1/3 cup Roquefort cheese, crumbled 1 tablespoon shallots, finely chopped 11/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped Dash hot pepper sauce Pinch salt

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together lightly with a fork until just evenly combined. Over-mixing will cause it to become too blue in colour. Spoon the mixture onto a sheet of waxed paper, and shape it into a log about 4 centimeters (11/2") in diameter. Refrigerate 1 hour. Slice into 1.5-centimer thick rounds (1/3") and place on hot grilled steaks to melt. Freeze leftovers butter.

Insider tips for a sizzling barbecue season Nothing is more disappointing than trying to grill that perfect steak when your barbecue just won't heat up and cook the way it used to. To avoid this, the grilling experts at Broil King offer some helpful tips to get your gas barbecue ready for the season ahead. Here is their advice: Give your grill a good cleaning: Begin by removing the cooking grids, grates and burners from your grill. Brush the inside of the oven with a sturdy bristle brush to remove the build-up of grease. Using a grill cleaner, scrub the inside and outside of the oven and then rinse with

water. Never use oven cleaner on your grill since it is corrosive and can damage the other components. Check for leaks: Inspect the gas hose to make sure there aren't any cracks or leaks. This can easily be done by preparing a soapy solution and applying it to the connections at the tank and valve. Turn the tank on slowly and watch for bubbles to form, which indicates that there is a leak. Try tightening the connections and retest. If persistent leaking or blistering is detected, stop using your grill and replace the gas assembly. Inspect your burners: Carefully

inspect your burners, making sure there are no damaged ports or holes rusted through. If there are, it's time for a replacement. Check all igniter connections to ensure they're not loose and remove any debris from the components. Beware of spiders: It's very important to keep the burner tubes clean. Spiders love to make a nest in these tubes, creating blockages that can cause serious damage. Clean the tubes using a venturi brush or bottle brush. Season your grids: Check the cooking grids to make sure no welds are broken and brush off any stuck on residue. If you

have cast iron cooking grids, season them with oil to keep food from sticking and to help prevent rust. Maintain the little things: Finally, check the condition of your control knobs, thermometer and handles. Replacing small items like this can refresh your gas barbecue and make it look new again. Taking a bit of time each season to clean and inspect the gas barbecue will prolong its life and will ensure it is reliable for another great barbecue season.

A new hiding place for your Easter eggs By Angela Shelf Medearis

After the Easter baskets have been put away and the chocolate bunnies are a delicious, melted memory, the colored hardcooked eggs linger on. Remember, that although your colored eggs were attractive as the centerpiece for Easter, they are a perishable food and should have been treated that way. If the eggs were left at room temperature for more than two hours, you should not eat them. Cracked or dirty eggs should be discarded. A wise tip to remember: Use plastic eggs for decorating and hunting so you can keep the real eggs safe to eat. You might be able to find plastic eggs on clearance in stores after Easter, so stock up for next year. Hard-cooked eggs should be used within one week. Refrigerated fresh eggs can be kept for four to five weeks. Hardcooked eggs don't last as long because the cooking process removes the protective coating. If you're looking for a unique new way to use up your hard-cooked eggs before the week is out, this recipe for a Roasted Peach and Lemon Shortbread Tart is the perfect answer.

4 large egg yolks 5 tablespoons cornstarch 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice or extract Pastry 2 medium hard-cooked egg yolks or 1 large egg yolk 1 3/4 sticks unsalted butter 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 cup potato starch 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt

Peach and Lemon Shortbread Tart

Topping 10 fresh peach halves 1/4 granulated sugar 1/3 cup peach jam 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice 1/2 cup powdered sugar

This unusual dessert uses hard-cooked egg yolks to make a flaky tart crust. The technique of using hard-boiled egg yolks and potato starch is based on a classic French recipe. If fresh peaches aren't available, you can use canned and drained peach halves or frozen, thawed and drained frozen peach halves.

Make the Pastry Cream: 1. In a saucepan, combine 1 cup of the milk with sugar and lemon zest; bring to a simmer. Remove milk from heat; let stand for 15 minutes. 2. In small bowl, whisk remaining 1 cup milk with yolks and cornstarch until smooth. Slowly whisk egg yolk mixture

into warm milk. Bring milk mixture to a simmer over moderate heat, whisking constantly until very thick, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in butter until melted. Stir in vanilla and lemon juice or lemon extract. Scrape cream into a bowl. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface and refrigerate until chilled, 2 to 4 hours. Make the Pastry: 3. Make the pastry: Preheat the oven to 375 F. Spray a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom with nonstick cooking spray. Set a stand or hand-held mixer on medium-speed to combine the hardcooked egg yolks with butter and sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the flour, potato starch and salt, and beat at low speed until just combined. Using lightly floured hands, press dough evenly over bottom and up sides of the tart pan. Refrigerate crust for 30 minutes, or until chilled. 4. Bake crust for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to rack and let stand until cooled, about 1 hour. Make the Topping: 5. Increase oven temperature to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil paper. Arrange peach halves cut side up on lined pan and sprinkle all over with the sugar. Roast for about 20 to 30 minutes, until the peaches are tender and lightly browned for fresh peaches, and 7 to 10 minutes for canned or frozen and thawed peach halves. Let peaches stand until completely cooled, about 30 minutes. 6. Place jam into a microwave-safe bowl. Mix jam with the lemon juice and cook on high in microwave until melted about 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside to cool. 7. Unmold the crust and transfer to serving plate. Using a small offset spatula or the back of a small spoon, spread the cream evenly in the crust. Arrange the peaches on the cream, cut sides down, and brush with the melted jam mixture. Place powdered sugar in a sifter and dust top of tart with the sugar. Cut the tart and serve at once.

Glazed Ham with Apricots

Yes, ham can be the centerpiece of a healthy Easter meal - just choose a piece that's lean (ask for shank), low-sodium and smoked (to reduce fat). Amp up the flavor with apricots and mustard-marmalade glaze. 1 (7-pound) fully cooked bone-in smoked half ham 1 package (6-ounce) dried apricot halves 2 tablespoons whole cloves 1/2 cup orange marmalade or apricot jam 2 tablespoons country-style Dijon mustard with seeds 1. Preheat oven to 325 F. With knife, remove skin and trim all but 1/8 inch fat from ham. Secure apricots with cloves to fat side of ham in rows, leaving some space between apricots. Place ham, fat side up, on rack in large roasting pan (17 by 11 1/2 inches); add 1 cup water. Cover pan tightly with foil. Bake 2 hours. 2. After ham has baked 1 hour and 45 minutes, prepare glaze: In 1-quart saucepan, heat marmalade and mustard to boiling on medium-high. Remove foil from ham and carefully brush with some glaze. Continue to bake ham 30 to 40 minutes longer or until meat thermometer reaches 135 F, brushing with glaze every 15 minutes. Internal temperature of ham will rise 5 to 10 degrees upon standing. (Some apricots may fall off into pan as you glaze.) 3. Transfer ham to cutting board; cover and let stand 20 minutes for easier slicing. Slice ham and serve with apricots from pan. Makes 16 servings. TIP: Ham halves are available as butt or shank. The shank half looks more like a classic whole ham because it contains the leg bone. It's also easier to carve than the butt half, and less fatty.

Green Beans with Fresh Lemon

1 small lemon 2 pounds green beans 3/4 teaspoon salt 1. Early in day: With zester, remove peel from lemon in long strips. Squeeze juice from lemon. Refrigerate lemon juice and peel. Trim ends from green beans; refrigerate. 2. About 15 minutes before serving: In 4-quart saucepan over high heat, in 1 inch boiling water, heat green beans to boiling. Reduce heat to medium; cook 5 to 10 minutes until beans are tender-crisp; drain. Toss beans with lemon juice and salt. Garnish with lemon peel to serve. Makes 16 servings.

How to make pizza healthier Pizza may have had humble beginnings, but today it is one of the most popular foods worldwide. More than five billion pizzas are sold across the globe each year, and pizza accounts for 10 percent of all foodservice sales. Although pizza has many positive attributes, few consider pizza a healthy meal. Laden with cheese and high-calorie meats, pizza is often referred to as a guilty pleasure. However, there are a variety of ways to make the pizza you love better for your body. •Downplay the cheese. Pizza originated in Naples, Italy, and it has been said the first pizzas were comprised of just dough and sauce and no cheese. Restaurants that favor more authentic pizzas of the past will not rely heavily on cheese when preparing their pizzas. Instead of ordering a pizza with extra cheese, opt for minimal cheese to add just a subtle component of flavor to the pizza. Such an alteration to the recipe can reduce the saturated fat and cholesterol in pizza by a considerable amount. •Savor the tomatoes. Tomatoes provide a bevy of health benefits. The carotenoids, specifically lycopene, found in tomatoes have a number of beneficial properties, including preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. According to a report from researchers at Athens Medical School that was published in Nutrition Research, a daily 70 gram portion of tomato paste containing roughly 33 mg of lycopene was associated with an improvement in flow-mediated dilation, a measure of a blood vessel's ability to relax. Tomatoes can help lower blood pressure, and they provide other heart benefits as well. Enjoying extra sauce on pizza and supplementing with sliced, cooked tomatoes can help make pizza healthier. •Choose whole-wheat crust. More restaurants are adding whole-grain pizzas to their menus. By switching to a whole-wheat crust, you can boost your fiber intake by as much as 50 percent. High-fiber foods help to regulate cholesterol levels in the blood and help you to feel fuller longer, reducing the likelihood that you will overeat. Fiber also helps the digestive tract by making a person more regular. Whole-grain foods have a lower glycemic index than processed grains as well, meaning they won't cause rapid blood-sugar spikes, which can be advantageous to those with diabetes.

• Top pizza with vegetables. Instead of salt- and fat-heavy meats like pepperoni, ham or sausage, top your pizza with fresh vegetables. Peppers, tomatoes, olives, broccoli, and spinach each deliver a wealth of vitamins and minerals, and are a great way to add more fiber to your diet. •Opt for thin-crust. Different areas of the country and the world favor different types of pizza. In the United States, New Yorkers prefer thin-crust pizza while the Windy City is synonymous with deep-dish pizza. While the debate continues as to which type of crust is better, switching to a thinner crust may have certain health benefits. Thick crusts pack more calories into each and every slice. When paired with cheese and other toppings, a slice of deep-dish pizza, while delicious, may contain more calories than is wise to eat in one sitting. Brick-oven pizza parlors generally offer whisper-thin crusts sparingly touched with cheese, sauce and basil to produce the classic Margherita pie, making such pizza a healthier alternative than New York- or Chicago-style pizza. •Pair pizza with salad. One way to make pizza healthier is to avoid overindulging. It is easy to overdo it with pizza, but try to cut your portion size in half, replacing that extra slice of pizza with a salad or side order of steamed vegetables to fill up without overindulging. Pizza is a popular food across the globe. And while pizza may not be the healthiest food, a few simple ingredient changes can make pizza a much more nutritional meal.

Soyfoods provide number of nutritional benefits The prevalence of soy products in recipes and ready-made foods has skyrocketed in recent years. Soy-based milk products and others that substitute soy with more traditional ingredients are no longer relegated to the outskirts of the neighborhood grocery store. While soy is being consumed in greater numbers than in decades past, some people are still unaware of the various health benefits and advantages to including soy in their diets. Soyfoods provide a number of nutritional benefits for people of all ages. According to the Soyfoods Association of North America, recent studies have indicated that eating soy at an early age may help protect against some diseases, including breast cancer, later in life. Soy also may help improve cognitive function. People largely turn to soy to maintain a healthy weight and control their cholesterol, as soy can replace foods that are higher in saturated fat, calories and cholesterol. For example, a glass of whole milk contains 150 calories and eight grams of total fat. Soy milk, however, comes in between 80 and 100 calories and may have roughly four grams of fat. The fat is mostly healthy fats, as there are only trace amounts of saturated fat in soy products. Soy also has cholesterol-lowering properties and can be beneficial to those who are lactose intolerant. Vegetarians and vegans routinely turn to soyfoods as a main protein source. Soyfoods can offer a number of healthy benefits, including providing a lean protein source that is lower in saturated fats than other forms of protein. Calcium-fortified soymilk offers the same nutritional value as cow's milk but can still be consumed by those who are lactose intolerant. Soy can help many people maintain healthy weights, and soyfoods promote cardiovascular health. While soyfoods can be beneficial, such foods are not perfect. Allergies to soy are possible, and as with any dietary supple-

ment, moderate consumption may be all that's necessary to provide nutritional benefits. Overconsumption of soy may not provide the desired results. One concern regarding soy is its relationship to genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Reports suggest that the vast majority of soybeans produced in the United States are GMOs. While these soybeans are primarily used for livestock feed, many foods that people eat also contain GMO soybeans. The jury is still out with regard to the impact that GMO foods have on personal health. Proponents of GMOs say their use makes agricultural products safer and more affordable. GMO crops may be resistant to pests, eliminating the need for herbicides and pesticides. But opponents of GMOs say that they may be harmful, as they might have less nutritional value, incite allergic reactions, cause problems with liver function and be harmful to the planet. Individuals who still want to enjoy soy products such as tofu, miso, tempeh, soy sauce, soy milk, and foods that contain soy lecithin, an emulsifier, can opt for organic products and those that specifically advertise no GMO ingredients. More and more food manufacturers are heeding consumer demand for foods that do not contain GMOs, and producers of soyfoods are no exception. Brands like Silk(R), Tofurky(R), Wildwood(R) and Eden Foods(R) produce soy products that are GMO-free. Read labels to determine if soy products contain GMOs.

Earlier this year television viewers bid adieu to Jay Leno, who hosted "The Tonight Show" for more than 20 years. Leno's tenure at the show put him in the company of late night legends such as Johnny Carson and Jack Paar. "The Tonight Show" is now hosted by Jimmy Fallon, a former "Saturday Night Live" cast member and host of "Late Night," a program taken over by Fallow's friend and fellow "Saturday Night Live" alumnus Seth Meyers.

Warning signs: Detecting food sensitivities in your pet id you know that your pet may have been experiencing food sensitivities without you realizing it? With food intolerances on the rise, it is as important as ever for pet owners to be aware of the warning signs so they can monitor their cats and dogs closely and find solutions for improving their dietary health. It is also important to watch for distinct symptoms displayed by cats and dogs. Michele Dixon, a specialist in pet health and nutrition, shares some of the common warning signs to be aware of. Michele also points out how you can take extra care with the food you choose. The following symptoms are typically apparent in

cats with intolerances: •Digestive upset, including vomiting and diarrhea; •Bloat and related symptoms, such as gas; •Skin irritation - since this is rare in cats, it may be a sign that yours is intolerant to certain food ingredients. Meanwhile, dogs have a tendency to display the following symptoms if they suffer from food-related issues: •Excessive paw licking or chewing, with paws often turning red as a result; •Chronic or recurrent ear infections; •Fur loss may be visible; •Itching and rashes, especially around the dog's face,

feet, ears, forelegs or armpits; •Vomiting and diarrhea may develop over time when feeding the same food. If your pet is experiencing any of the above symptoms, it may be an indicator that they have a food intolerance. Knowing the warning signs is the first step toward understanding whether your furry friend has a food-related intolerance. Careful consideration of the food you choose for them can help prevent unwanted disruption of their digestive system and will give them the fuel they need to lead a strong, healthy life.

Cracking egg myths in time for Easter Whether Easter eggs are associated

with secular or religious beliefs, these colorful staples of Easter Sunday are an integral part of springtime holiday decor and celebrations. Certain misconceptions about Easter eggs have developed over time, and the following are some of the more common myths about Easter eggs that have made the rounds. Myth: Easter eggs are safe to eat after your egg hunt is over. Fact: Hard-boiled eggs generally remain safe to eat at room temperature for about two hours. If the temperature outside or indoors is very warm, the eggs should be eaten within one hour. People risk food-borne illnesses if they consume Easter eggs that have been left out for several hours or overnight. It is better to dispose of colored eggs after the annual egg hunt or at least keep hard-boiled eggs refrigerated until the hunt begins. Myth: It is unsafe to eat all dyed Easter eggs. Fact: Whether dyed eggs are safe or not depends on the type of dye used. Many kits use vegetable-based dyes that

are food-safe. These same pigments are used in traditional food coloring. Even if the dye has penetrated beneath the shell, it should still be safe for consumption. Kits for blown-out eggs may use dyes that are not food-safe. Myth: Pastel-colored eggs have longrooted religious significance. Fact: An Easter egg hunt is a tradition that originated with pagan spring festivals. But like many pagan practices, Easter egg hunting was eventually adopted by Christians and assigned religious significance. In the Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches, Easter eggs are dyed red to represent the blood of Christ shed on the cross. The hard shell of the egg symbolizes the sealed Tomb of Christ for many. Myth: An Easter egg roll is an American tradition. Fact: In Germany, England and other countries, children traditionally rolled eggs down hillsides at Easter. This practice may have initially symbolized the rolling away of the rock from Jesus Christ's tomb before his resurrection. When European immigrants arrived in North America, they brought these Easter egg traditions with them. Myth: A raw egg will stand on end during the spring equinox. Fact: It is believed that because the

sun is equidistant from the south and north poles on the spring equinox, special gravitational forces apply on this day. These forces should make it possible to balance an egg on its end only on this day. However, eggs can be balanced at

other times of the year. Easter eggs are a lasting tradition and one of the more popular symbols of the holiday. Although many myths surround Easter eggs, the truth is just waiting to be unhatched.

Identifying the signs of child abuse and neglect In January of 2014, four-year-old Myls Dobson died in a New York City apartment from injuries sustained after days of abuse by his caregiver. Janaie Jones admitted to burning Myls, beating him with belts and hangers and keeping him locked up and alone in the bathroom for long, extended periods of time. Jones said this was all just a form of corporal punishment to control the young boy. In another horrifying instance of child abuse, a couple from Monroeville, Ind. were arrested the same month and charged with felony child neglect after several of their children were left in a frigid van parked outside of a motel. The remainder of the children were zip-tied to a chair in a motel room. Stories like these may be shocking, but unfortunately they are not rare. The organization Child Help says a report of child abuse or neglect is made every ten seconds in the United States. Every year, more than three million reports of child abuse are made, and around four to seven children die each day due to neglect and abuse. Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education. While many cases of abuse are discovered and reported, it's likely that many more are not. It is estimated that between 50 and 60 percent of child fatalities due to maltreatment are not recorded as such on death certificates. Third-party observers may be unaware abuse is taking place until it is too late. Child abuse can be hard to distinguish, but certain visual clues or changes in behavior may indicate there is a problem. The Child Abuse Prevention Center and other organizations offer these signs of child abuse or neglect.

•There may be visible signs of injury, including bruises or burns. •Abused children may appear scared or anxious. They may also seem withdrawn or depressed. However, abused children also may act like nothing is wrong or become "class clowns" in an attempt to avoid unpleasant feelings. •Some abused kids may fear going home or to places where they may be abused. •Changes in school performance may indicate a problem. Some children will fall behind on work or have difficulty concentrating. Others may do especially well on tests or be obsessive about getting good grades for fear of punishment. •Abused and neglected children may suffer from a lack of personal care or hygiene. Clothing may not be appropriate for the weather or appear dirty. •Abused kids could have sleep disturbances that cause them to appear tired. •Behaviors such as bed-wetting, thumbsucking or other habits of early childhood may be brought on by abuse. Some children may have memory problems or stop speaking. •Children who are abused may balk at normal, appropriate touch. They may not be able to distinguish between good and bad touch. •Risk-taking behavior may be present in abused children. The youngsters may be testing their minds and bodies to extremes or looking for another form of escapism. •Children who have been sexually abused may exhibit overly sexualized behavior or use explicit sexual language. If you have concerns that abuse is taking place, report your feelings to a local or state child protective service agency or the police precinct. Doing so could save a child's life.

Receiving a diploma is very serious Receiving a diploma is something to take seriously, even for those students who are somewhat older than their fellow graduates. In 2003, Gustava Bennett Burrus graduated from Richmond High School outside of San Fransisco, Calif., at the age of 97. Ruth Hayes Green graduated from the Adult High School of the Perth

Amboy, New Jersey Adult Education Center in 2010 at age 98. In 2013, 106year-old Fred Butler, a student at Beverly High School in Massachusetts, received his high school diploma. He broke the Guinness World Record for oldest graduate previously held by Allan Stewart of Australia.
