Capital Area Wellness Coalition strives for a fit and active Concord

 We all make difficult choices on a daily basis: Do I make someone else assemble, cook and drive a pizza to my front door by ordering it from my smartphone or my tablet? Do I get together with my friends in a Google+ hangout or on Skype? Do I walk all the way to the end of the driveway to get the mail or should I just have my iServant do it? Apple admittedly hasn’t developed…

Want to add some punch to your palate? Beet up your dinner plate

 Strong vegetables elicit strong opinions. They’re either loved or hated, with very few people taking the middle ground. Beets fall into that love ’em or hate ’em category, with their intense, earthy flavor and outrageous color. It’s only fair to disclose that I’ve been a beet hater for most of my vegetable-eating life.

Concord got ice cold when you weren’t looking

This week in Concord history

 Jan. 29, 1896: Concord’s first Walker lecture (on Abraham Lincoln, by former Massachusetts governor John Long) is held at White’s Opera House.

They attribute the run on toilet paper to hoarding. Many set a limit of two rolls per customer. Jan. 29, 2001: Jerry Madden, a 21-year veteran of the Concord Police Department, is promoted to chief. “I think it’s wonderful,”…

There’s no shame in the dictionary game

 This week the Grammarmatrix looks at some juicy words which were used last week to fully express ideas in the Insider: inimitable, cache, titular and of course more awesomer. Did you already know these words? Maybe you were able to glean their meaning from the context of their sentences. Perhaps you had to look them up? There’s no shame in that; the Grammarmatrix looks up words all the time! And that’s what this article is all about – dictionaries! The most prestigious and detailed dictionary ever made is the Oxford English Dictionary. The idea came about because some…
