Page 12 POST-GAZETTE, NOVEMBER 14, 2014 +.. Ray Barron' 11 This just in! Drinking sug- ary sodas has been proved to lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart attacks. Now re- searchers have found evi- dence that the drinks could also speed up the body's ag- ing process. One of the signs of the aging process is that the caps on the end of people's chromosomes, known as telemeres, tend to shrink. Researchers found no link between cell aging and diet sodas or fruit juices. "We think we can get away with drinking lots of soda as long as we are not gaining weight," senior author Elissa Epel tells CBSNews,com. Remember, too much caf- feine can cause heart palpi- tations. Which reminds me, a Saudi Arabian woman can get a divorce if her husband doesn't give her coffee. The Agriculture Depart- ment says the average American eats 1,148 pounds of food a year. Of course, a lot of it goes to waist. According to Giuseppina, cosce storte, people who can't stay on a diet do the next best thing, they stay off the scales. For the first time, both boys and girls born today can ex- pect to live at least 90 years of age, according to the new mortality tables published by the Society of Acturaries. According to an annual survey from Career twenty-eight per- cent of U.S. workers played hooky last year, Only 31 per- cent of hiring managers, however, actually take the time to verify an employee's day-off excuse. Some of the whoppers managers reported hearing included "I just put a casserole in the oven," "I accidentally got on a plane," and "I awoke up in a good mood and didn't want to ruin it." Airline profits are taking off, said Susan Carey and Jack Nicas in the Wall Street Journal. Five of the country's biggest carriers- American, United, South- west, Delta, and JetBlue- reported strong quarterly earnings in large part be- cause of falling jet fuel prices, which have plunged 15 percent in September. It has been said, 55% of Americans say it's accept- able to recline your seat during a daytime airplane flight, while 24% disagree. Wow/ New hope for aging eyes!

CVS customers will have to shop elsewhere to satisfy cigarette habit. The pharmacy chain offi- cially yanked tobacco prod- ucts from its 7,700 locations, part of a rebranding aimed at grabbing a bigger slice of the health-care market. The move is expected to cost the chain more than $1.5 billion in annual tobacco sales. Do you know what CVS stands for? Consumer Value Service. It all began right here in Massachusetts.

Despite surging college costs, it now takes just 10 years for graduates to recoup the cost of their university degrees. In 1980, it took graduates nearly 25 years to earn back their investment. Gee, thanks to the G! bill we managed to attend college without facing high tuition costs. The Department of Labor has uncovered nearly $1 Bil- lion in unpaid wages by U.S. employers since 2010, with immigrants disproportion- ately the victims. Common violations include failure to pay for overtime, wrongfully distributing tips, and mis- reporting work hours. Mamma mia! A British man visiting his mother went into the spare bedroom to get some sleep when he found the bed covered in 5,000 wasps. A window in the room had been left open, allowing the swarm to move in and build a 3-foot-wide nest that engulfed the bed. Local pest controller John Barked said he "dressed up like a spaceman" to get rid of the nest, which included hundreds of queen wasps, adding that the mattress and pillows had been chewed to pieces. "It was like the hor- ror film The Birds but with wasps," said Barked. "I have never seen anything like it." Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush recently fueled specu- lation that he is gearing up for a presidential run in 2016, telling a Nashville au- dience that he will decide by the end of the year whether to seek the Republican Party's nomination. His son, George P. Bush told an inter- viewer that "it's more than likely" his father will run against Hillary Clinton? Carlo Scostumato, says, "Running for president is like asking a girl to marry you-you may say a lot of things you later wish you hadn't. Unbelievable!

Italian American busi- ness leaders: Italian Ameri- cans are at the helm of the U.S. book industry. Leonard Riggio is the founder and CEO of Barnes & Nobles, the largest book store in the na- tion, while Borders, the sec- ond largest book store chain in the U.S., is chaired by Robert DiRonaldo. Random House, America's largest book publisher, is headed by Alberto Vitale. The owner of the world's largest distri- butor of English-language comic books is Baltimore's Steve Geppi, who dropped out of high school to support his family. Last heard, Geppi is a minority owner of the Bal- timore Orioles. And Jeno Paulucci founded Chun King Chow Mein, which he launch- ed with a $2,500 loan in 1946, and sold 20 years later for $63 million in cash. He has also founded Jeno's Pizza Rolls, Luigino's Inc., a line of frozen pasta entrees, and Pasta Lovers Trattorias. And Mr. Coffee, the best-selling coffee maker in the world, was inventedby Vince Marotta, who also invented paper coffee filter and devel- oped a better way to extract oil from coffee beans. Since 1972, more than 50 million Mr. Coffees have been sold. An estimated 10 billion Mr. Coffee paper filters are sold annually. Reminiscing with the stately musicologist, Albert Natale, Perry Como was an RCA recording artist longer than any singer with any label. The Harry James hit "I've Heard That Song Before," featuring a vocal by Helen Forrest, had sold over one million copies by June, 1942. The biggest seller Columbia Records had at the time.

Biscotti di prato or cantuccini also called cantucci o giottini, are a beloved 7hscan sweet specialty. They are baked twice (biscotti) to be very firm and dry. These crisp cookies are traditionally dipped in Vin Santo for dessert. Vin Santo ("Holy wine"), is a dessert wine made from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, and is always paired with cantuccini cookies. Although the origin of the name Vin Santo is debated, we can say with certainty that it dates back to the Middle Ages and some say it was the wine used in religious Mass. Biscotti di Prato or Cantuccini (Prato biscotti) 2 cups almonds, skinned and roasted 4 V4 cups flour 1 V2 cup sugar 4 eggs Salt Grated zest of 2 lemons tsp anise oil or anise extract Butter (to grease the baking sheet) 1 egg Preparation: chop the almond coarsely and mix with the flour, sugar, eggs, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Add the lemon zest and anise to taste. Form the dough into long rolls about 1 inch diameter and place on a greased baking sheet. Whisk the egg with a little sugar and brush the rolls with it. Place into a preheated oven and bake, or rather dry, at 250F for no more than 30 minutes. Cut the rolls into V2 inch thick diagonal slices, and bake these for about another 15 minutes until completely dry. Serve with a small glass of Vin Santo for dipping. Buon appetito!
