On the Road in a Lightning Storm?

What you should do!

It's true that people are often safe inside a car during a lightning storm, but the reason for that is dangerously misunderstood. All-metal cars (not convertibles) can provide protection. This is because of the Faraday Cage effect: Electricity is directed throughout the metal exterior, instead of inside the vehicle. The charge then exits to the ground.

This isn't because of the car's rubber wheels. In fact, there are important limitations to the protection inside a metal car. Don't touch metal objects in the car. According to weather.com, some current can travel through the electrical systems, including radios, cell phone chargers, GPS units, foot pedals, door handles and the steering wheel.

If a lightning strike disables the car's electrical systems, the air bag can deploy. Lightning can also spark fires in the car's electrical system.

Best advice: Shelter in a substantial building - not in your car. If this isn't possible, pull the car over, turn on the emergency lights and put your hands in your lap. Windows should be up.

Better body composition has been linked to cancer survival


Increased muscle mass along with decreased levels of excess fat has been shown to help improve the chances of surviving cancer, according to a recent study from Kaiser Permanente, the University of Alberta, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

The chance of mortality among those with muscle deficiency was 41 percent while those with excess body fat showed a rate of 35 percent. More alarming, however, is that those with body compositions that included both risk factors succumbed to cancer in 89 percent of cases.

Researchers have often studied the link between body size and cancer survival rates in the past, but traditionally they have used the body mass index (BMI) as the method of analyzing the body. By using CT scans of the abdominal portion of the body, specifically the third lumbar vertebra of the lower back, the researchers were able to see a more accurate breakdown of both muscle and fat tissues in the body. They concluded that such a measurement led to better prognostic information than using BMI alone.

Despite the strong correlation between having a better body mass composition and lowered risk of breast cancer-related death, the true causation cannot be revealed by this study alone, according to Forbes. It is possible that those with less muscle simply had more aggressive forms of cancer that wouldn't respond to treatment and were therefore more lethal regardless of their starting mass.

According to the National Institutes of Health, cancer cachexia, the progressive loss of both fat and muscle loss among cancer patients, is responsible for about a quarter of all cancer deaths and having a larger stockpile of healthy body mass to lose could be a necessary defense for survival.

Grilled Chicken with Moroccan Spices


Kiss the cook: Grilled chicken with Moroccan spices equals love at first bite Any summer night is Father's Day when Dad mans the grill for relaxed dinners on the patio. Here's an idea for fabulous grilled chicken that uses common spices in an exotic combination that hints at Morocco. This recipe, from onceuponachef.com, is not very challenging and your picky eaters should still love it. The key is the marinade. The chicken should bathe in the spice combo for about five hours in the refrigerator. This marinade works perfectly well for bone-in chicken or tenderloins.

Marinade ingredients:
1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pounds chicken breasts
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions:
Combine olive oil and dry ingredients to make the marinade.
Put chicken and marinade in freezer bags. Shake to coat and then massage the marinade into the chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 5 to 6 hours.
Cooking time will depend on whether you are using thin tenderloins or bone-in pieces. Tenderloins will cook very quickly.
Preheat grill on high.
Place the tenderloins and spoon on marinade.
Grill 2 to 3 minutes per side. Keep your eye on them to make sure they don't overcook.
For full chicken breasts, preheat gas grill to 400 degrees with lid down.
Turn off one of the burners and place chicken skin-side down on the off burner.
Grill over indirect heat for 15 minutes (grill lid closed).
Turn over, cook on indirect heat for 10 minutes more.
Move chicken over direct heat and cook, turning once, until skin is well browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
