Cosmic Forecast, Sep. 27-Oct. 3

Leo + Virgo = Libra. The fire that is the Sun and the love and earthly bounty of Mother Nature combine to create the winds of autumn; creating this breath of change. The first 6 signs of the zodiac begin to develop the sense of “self.” The last 6 place that self into social context, as a test on the quest to define this recently discovered self. What else? Libra represents the concept of “I and one other.” Hey, wha’cha doing for the winter? (…With humility.)

One Year Later

The answer was obvious, really. Was it the low point of his career?

“Yeah, I think so,” Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez said on Monday.

“It” was a reference to last season’s 48-17 loss at Wisconsin, the Huskers’ first conference game as a member of the Big Ten. Martinez threw three interceptions during a 5-minute-plus stretch that included the first play from scrimmage in the second half.

Nebraska led 14-13 when the stretch began, and trailed 34-14 as a result of it.

So yes, Martinez probably hasn’t endured any more adversity than that.

But a year has passed, no pun intended, and Martinez has learned a good deal since then. The numbers reflect it. In…

CFLs: When a Green Light Means Stop

The Feds have backed off a little on the mandate that would have made the old-fashioned incandescent light bulb a thing of the past. In 2007, Congress passed a law that would have taken regular light bulbs out of the marketplace by now. But last year, Congress didn’t repeal the law. They did the next best thing: They defunded it. By removing funding to enforce the law that would have banned regular 100-watt bulbs, they effectively said the law exists but it won’t be enforced.

Buddy, can I get a light? Compact fluorescent lights or CFLs, were going to be the answer to energy independence. Federal law stipulated that all light bulbs must use 30 percent less energy…

Public Not Private

Tom Osborne’s “heart episode” (his words) remained private for a time. He didn’t discuss it at length until three weeks later, when he announced he would be stepping aside after 25 seasons.

The episode was a rapid heartbeat, atrial fibrillation. Initially, “what I didn’t tell  you was that they did have to put me under and they had to shock me to get it back in, which is a little bit more than we had hoped,” Osborne said during the stepping-aside news conference on Dec. 10, 1997.

Later in the news conference, he talked about what might have caused the episode. “It could have been the Missouri game,” he said, in an attempt at levity.

The…

In Sync: Body and Nature

Nature and doshas

The ancient Indian medical system known as ayurveda identifies three primary energies in nature, pitta, vata, and kapha. All existence is made of these three energies — bodies, planets, trees, foods — everything. Related to the body, these energies are called doshas. Balance of the doshas is crucial to health.

We can stay in sync with nature by studying the nature of the doshas.

Pitta relates to the element fire, anything that has a fiery, hot and high-energy nature. Summer is a pitta season, peppers are a pitta spice and we all know fiery people.

Vata is airy, dry, cool, changeable, mercurial, identified with the element wind. Vata people tend to be…

Husker ‘Want-to’

Bo Pelini might have misinterpreted the basis for the question. But no one could have misinterpreted his response. Nebraska’s fifth-year football coach punctuated it with an icy stare in the direction of the reporter who asked. Pelini held the stare for several seconds.

The question was whether the Huskers’ tackling problems in a 36-30 loss to UCLA at the Rose Bowl stadium were a result of lacking “want-to,” a description used by some of his players.

Pelini equated “want-to” with commitment.

“ ’Want-to,’ from our players? Let me tell you something about our football team, our football players and everybody associated with our football program,” he said. “There isn’t any more ‘want-to’ out there. Don’t start…
