Healthy Diets: Adults Need 45 Grams Of Protein Per Day From A Balanced Diet

From a Wall Street Journal article by Heidi Mitchell:

How much protein should you eat each day Wall Street JournalUnlike carbohydrates or fats, proteins are the only nutrients that can be used to build new cells that can form tissue, said Dr. Walter, a registered dietitian. 

“These have to be supplied by food, and the best source of them is what we call a complete protein, which includes meat, chicken, fish, milk or eggs,” she said. A total of eight ounces, or about 45 grams of protein, is all an adult needs each day, she said, and the type of complete protein it comes from doesn’t matter in a balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables and grains.

Top RV Campsites: Zion National Park’s Watchman Campground Offers Shuttles, Year-Round Sites

From Fodors.com article:

Watchman Campground ZionThe Watchman Campground at Zion National Park fills up months in advance, and for good reason: This massive 176-site campground located a 1/4 mile from the south entrance and visitor center sits in the shadow of the iconic Zion rock formation. Despite its size, there’s enough space between campsites, spread out among six loops, to preserve your camping experience. For something more private try one of the 18 walk-in sites at the campground. In addition to firepits and clean bathrooms with flush toilets, some of the sites have shade trees to relax under after a long, hot day of traversing the The Narrows.

Top Exhibitions: “N.C. Wyeth – New Perspectives” At Brandywine River Museum, Chadds Ford, PA

From a Wall Street Journal article by Edward Rothstein:

Brandywine River Museum of Art Wyeth Exhibit The Lobsterman 1944 Metropolitan Museum of ArtIn some cases, Wyeth’s images bore into memory as sharply as the books they illuminate. I’m thankful I never saw Wyeth’s “Captain Nemo” (1918) while steeping myself in Jules Verne’s “The Mysterious Island” (1874): I would never have been able to shed the image Wyeth created of this white-haired, secretive, dying man, surrounded by allusions to his exotic past, his skin seeming bleached, we learn here, by the electrical lighting of his submarine.

 

This is the first retrospective Wyeth has received in a generation, and it may be unfair to begin an account of it with the illustrations that made him a commercial success, for they also haunted him as he struggled to free himself from his reputation as an illustrator— a struggle that ultimately involved his relationship with his more
artistically celebrated son, Andrew, and his attempts to both accommodate and bypass modernist taste. But you can see how they could have had that impact. This show—jointly created with Maine’s Portland Museum of Art, and curated by Christine B. Podmaniczky from the Brandywine and Jessica May from the Portland—pays tribute
to the illustrations’ power and notes, too, that Wyeth often cut his artistic cloth to suit the demands of magazine editors, advertising agencies and bank-building mural planners.

Top Foodie Destinations: “Unparalleled Quality” At “Mercado Little Spain” In Hudson Yards, NYC

From New York Times article by Pete Wells:

Mercado Little SpainUnlike its European models or even local markets like Eataly and Le District, Mercado Little Spain is not set up to provide the ingredients for tonight’s dinner. What it is useful for is on-the-spot eating of almost unparalleled quality.

I was well into my fifth meal in the complex before I came across a dish I didn’t really like; as a general rule, everything is good, which is not something restaurant critics are in the habit of saying. After eating twice in each of its three sit-down restaurants and stitching together another half-dozen meals out of items sold individually at the bars, kiosks and so on, I’m ready to declare that Mercado Little Spain offers more delicious things to eat per square foot than anywhere else in New York.

New Camping Websites: “Tentrr.com” Provides Fully Equipped Campsites On Private Land Locations

From a Travel and Leisure online article:

Tentrr.com Camping SitesTentrr is a new site that’s hoping to take the unknown factor out of glamping while providing campers with exclusive access to locations across the U.S. — many of which are totally remote. Tentrr partners with private landowners to install a fully equipped campsite on their property. Every Tentrr Signature Campsite has a sturdy canvas tent on an elevated platform, bed, wood stove, Adirondack chairs, fire pit, grill, picnic table, sun shower, and camp toilet.

Glamping has filled a void for adventurous travelers who don’t want to brave the wild in a nylon tent, but still want to experience nature away from RVs and packed campgrounds. But as with most new things, the quality and experience of glamping can vary, with guests often unsure of what to expect.

Boomers Health Care: “Population Health” Looks Beyond The Clinic For Better Outcomes

From a Scientific American online article by Adam Myers:

Projected Federal Spending on Medicare and MedicaidI once witnessed the care of a patient who suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which blocks airflow to lungs and makes it difficult to breathe. Over the course of a particularly hot Texas summer, he was admitted to the hospital time and time again—racking up more than $60,000 in medical expenses. Doctors were treating his breathing problems repeatedly, but they did not understand why the patient continued to have trouble.

One population health–oriented physician dug a bit deeper, holding in-depth conversations about the patient in the hospital—and later, having a team member visit his home. There, it was discovered that he lived without an air conditioner. A caring individual purchased and installed a $400 air conditioner for him, and his hospital visits stopped.
