Experimental Forests?

[…] in which geneticists are experimentally crossing the coniferous Eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) with the deciduous sugar maple (Acer saccharum). You may have seen signage at certain points of entry while driving, or noted boundary blazes or flagging while hiking in the woods if you like to bushwhack. Perhaps you have even come across warning signs posted along a high electrified fence crowned with razor wire […]

That’s what Redline Guide Cindy Zhou just did, earning her SOLO WFR (and renewing her CPR/AED in the process) through the University of Massachusetts in Lowell, which hosted the course.

The honor of the title doesn’t last as these are highly perishable skills to learn. We quickly tuck them away into our memories (we […]

Reversing Raynaud Syndrome

A reversal treatment for Raynaud syndrome would be a welcome relief for many… My hands feel really numb, lifeless, and they look cold — freezing cold. My fingers are a waxy white. The temperature is only 40°F and the wind is hardly blowing. I’m hiking and should feel great, warm from exercise. And I am, except for my numb, dead-looking hands. If the photos on this […]
