confessions of a couch potato from an ex- taekwondo teacher

The following story is excerpted from TIME’s special edition, The Science of Exercise, which isavailable at Amazon.As I huffed and puffed up the subway stairs, trying to catch the elevated train to work one recent morning, I was reminded of Mark Twain’s wise words: “Exercise is loathsome.” Is it ever! I think to myself. If one of American literature’s great geniuses didn’t have to go to the gym, then why should I?I suppose the out-of-breathness could be one reason, but ever since I hung up my black belt—I’ll get to that in a second—I’ve had a hard time getting myself back to practice. I wasn’t always this out-of-shape, and in fact, I used to love to work out. But if you saw me today, you probably wouldn’t believe that I’m a black belt—a black belt and a taekwondo instructor who, needless t

catholic schools ordered to stop kids' confession behind closed doors

Catholic schools have been ordered to stop hearing childrens' confessions behind closed doors, as Melbourne Catholic Archbishop Denis Hart responds to new child safety rules. In a directive issued in November last year, Archbishop Hart asked Catholic school principals and parish priests to conduct confessions "in an open setting in the full view of all participants, who are supervised by staff".
A priest is under fire for using confessional booths for primary school students, despite calls from the Archbishop of Melbourne to conduct confessions in an "open space". The parish priest must ensure there is a "direct line of sight" to the penitent. But there is debate about what constitutes an "open setting" and how much privacy students and priests should be given during confession. And one

how to make crispy baked sweet potato fries

Mushy sweet potato fries make us sad. Far too often they're flimsy and limp, and passed off as a more sanctimonious way to eat french fries. But sweet potato fries deserve better. They have all the potential to be as shatteringly crispy as any regular fry, with all the extra flavor and sweetness we've come to love in sweet potatoes.
You can have all this without deep frying, double soaking, twice baking, or anything so involved. For the crispiest oven-baked sweet potato fries, you need to walk over to the pantry and take out the cornstarch because that ingredient is the secret.

recipe: irish potato candy | kitchn

Unless you're from Pennsylvania, you've probably never heard of Irish potato candy. I didn't know what they were, but assumed they were candy made from potatoes. Wrong! Irish potato candies may look like adorable little potatoes, but they're no-cook coconut and cream cheese candies with a coating of ground cinnamon — essentially the coconut equivalent of chocolate truffles.

As we head into grilling, potluck, and picnic season, it's time to dust off all those tried-and-true recipes you've been missing for the last eight months or so. You need your burgers, your hot dogs, your pasta salads, your grilled pizza, and, of course, a killer potato salad. The potato salad I grew up with was heavy on the potato and mayonnaise. It was delicious, but maybe not the healthiest of options. It's also a little bit of a bummer because there are so many delicious in-season vegetables that don't usually make it into this summer staple.
Well, Pinterest has some news for you. The most popular potato salad on the platform is chock-full of delicious summer vegetables and you need to try it ASAP.

5 mistakes to avoid when making potato salad

We're in prime picnic and backyard barbecue season, with the biggest day of them all — the 4th of July — right around the corner. This time of year wouldn't be complete without one of my favorite side dishes: potato salad. Chunks of well-seasoned, fork-tender potatoes tossed with some crunchy veggies and a touch of mayo or perhaps a nice vinaigrette — it's a summertime staple.
No matter what your favorite potato salad style is, be sure to avoid these five common mistakes when making your next batch.
1. Using the wrong type of potatoes.
Not all potatoes are created equal when it comes to potato salad. Potatoes are divided into three general categories based on their texture — starchy, all-purpose, and waxy. For this dish, avoid using starchy potatoes, like Russets, which have a tendenc

recipe: sweet potato latte | kitchn

In Korea, sweet potatoes are more than just root vegetables — they're a celebrated food staple and vessel of the country's culture and kinship. Whether you're using it in soups, snacks, or desserts, or simply eating it steamed and plain, there are many ways to enjoy this comforting tuber.
When I lived in Korea for the second time, as an adoptee returned to teach English for four years, one of my favorite ways to enjoy the Korean sweet potato, or goguma, was in latte form. This beverage consists of only three ingredients: Korean sweet potato, milk, and sugar — not an ounce of caffeine in sight — but it's delightful.
After moving back to the United States, my nostalgia for Korea brought me all around New York in search of the goguma latte of my memories. At the time, I was never able to fi

us approves 3 types of genetically engineered potatoes

U.S. officials say three types of potatoes genetically engineered to resist the pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine are safe for the environment and safe to eat.
The approval by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration late last week gives Idaho-based J.R. Simplot Company permission to plant the potatoes this spring and sell them in the fall.The company says the potatoes contain a potato gene resistant to late blight.Late blight is pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine.Fungicides have been used for decades to prevent the blight.The genetically engineered potatoes will require half of the fungicide normally used by potato farmers.The company says the potatoes also have reduced bruising and black spots and enhanced storage capacity.

Just when you think you've mastered Swedish, you open your mouth. Stockholm-based English teacher David Ashby describes the moment he realised his Swedish pronunciation scares small children.
Due to my savagely poor Swedish pronunciation skills I live in a world of curious conversations and extraordinary exchanges. Everyday, I never quite know what linguistic labyrinth I am going to find myself getting lost in, and whether I am going to get myself out again with a semblance of dignity intact. Well, actually I do have a pretty good idea that my dignity is probably going to end up scattered on the floor around my feet, because that’s where it tends to spend most of its tim
