Austin Peay State University professor Stefan Woltmann featured in National Geographic article on Gulf of Mexico oil spill

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Five years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which flooded nearly five million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, scientists are still struggling to unravel the mysteries of a natural habitat deeply impacted by the largest oil spill in U.S. waters.

National Geographic recently published the first part of a five-part series marking the incident’s fifth anniversary. In the first installment, titled “Is Gulf Oil Spill’s Damage Over or Still Unfolding?,” the magazine probed the minds of scientists and researchers devoting their time to discovering the way millions of gallons of oil has changed, or will continue to change, the Gulf of Mexico and the creatures that call that landscape home.

How to stop using Comforting Foods to Comfort Yourself

Comfort Foods (Tim Hawk, NJ.com)

Clarksville, TN – Comfort foods have become a way of life these days. It’s not hard to understand why we need comfort foods. Our lives are full of stress. The crashing economy has scared most intelligent people silly. The thought that what we formerly believed was enough money to live on has now become barely adequate is enough to send anyone running to the ice cream carton or the macaroni and cheese bowl or the potato chip bag.

We seek comfort when we are stressed. We learned as babies that milk was comfort. When we were sick as children, we were comforted by chicken soup or ice cream or whatever Mom’s favorite cookie recipe was. We continued as teens to comfort our growing insecurity about our popularity with cheeseburgers, soft drinks and doughnuts. We entered college and survived on pizzas to overcome exam jitters.
