You're are likely familiar with apples. They are among the most popular fruits, especially this time of year, when they are fresh, crisp, and available in abundance at roadside farm stands here in the northeast. You know that they have a peel, delicious flesh, a stem, a core, and some seeds. But, here are lots of other parts of an apple that are likely less familiar to you. It's these components of the apple that make it so nutritious.   A fiber powerhouse. A medium apple has four  grams of fiber. That's more than a serving of prunes! All that fiber, plus a high water content, makes apples a very satisfying food for relatively few calories. When you're hungry,

Veteran Spotlight: A Vietnam Diary, Part II
04:01PM / Sunday, September 19, 2021
    MARCH 23: Buddy's birthday today. Celebrated with scotch, bourbon and crabmeat. McCABE IS DEAD. There's no dignity in death in battle – it comes in the sorrow, helplessness and hopelessness that comes down to the family back home by telegram.   MARCH 24: Went to church. Free-bread-peace. The rain sounds beautiful on our tin roof. Worked on our bomber. Tomorrow isn't the only thing to live for. And read. Everything is only for a day – both that which remembers and that which is remembered. Before a guy can know even his God, he must know himself. He must find inner peace in his heart. We must be content with what we have, yet constantly try to

@theMarket: Markets Enter the Danger Zone
By Bill Schmick,
04:33PM / Friday, September 17, 2021
It has been a bumpy week for stocks, and it could get worse if you believe the headlines of the financial press. The issue I see is that just about everyone is expecting a nasty period ahead for equities. That makes me somewhat bullish.   Calling short-term market moves in this environment is akin to fortune-telling. It is short on analysis, and long on my gut feelings. Granted, I too, have been warning folks that the September-October 2021 time period has been a seasonally difficult time for equities. My column last week addressed the possibility of a 5-10 percent correction, and what investors should do about it.   The media has now proclaimed that we are entering a "danger
