We Are Mountain Bikers

Fri, 2014-07-18 13:26

When you’re biking in Alaska, you can expect things to be a little more intense. Riders in the 49th state deal with constantly changing weather, rough terrain, and unexpected animal encounters. The men and women of Alaska’s Downhill Brigade wouldn’t have it any other way.

Legalizing Marijuana

Fri, 2014-07-18 12:30

Alaska could follow in the footsteps of Colorado and Washington if voters choose to legalize marijuana in November. Ballot Measure 2 would tax and regulate the production, sale and use of marijuana in Alaska. Hear Kristina Woolston and Taylor Bickford debate what that means for the state in a debate hosted by the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce.

For more information on Ballot Measure 2, visit the Alaska Division of Elections’ website explaining the measure.

The Newly-Named ‘Alaska Dispatch News’

Fri, 2014-07-18 12:00

Not very many years ago it was pretty easy to know how the publisher of a newspaper felt about things. All you had to do was look at the editorial
page. But when the Anchorage Daily News was acquired by the Alaska Dispatch, it stopped running its own editorials.  Now it is changing its name, and the managers of the Alaska Dispatch News will be taking questions from Alaskans across the state.

Overcoming Nicotine Addiction

Fri, 2014-07-18 11:00

“Black Prince tobakksreklame” is a cigarette advertisement from 1949 from the collection at the Museum of Trondheim, Norway. Accessed 16 July 2014 from Wikimedia Commons.

Seventy percent of all active nicotine users wish they had never startedand about half tried to quit once in the last year. The negative health implications of tobacco use are well documented and the social acceptance of the practice is waning. Despite all of the awareness and the multitude of obvious reasons to quit, most who try find it an exceedingly difficult proposition that often ends in failure. Why does this natural herbicide have the ability to control our minds to the point that we will consume it despite the fact that it is a poison that slowly kills us? Join Line One host Prentiss Pemberton and guest clinical psyclologist Dr. Ron Ohlson as they discuss the psychological challenges of overcoming nicotine addiction.

Except this isn't the beginning of the end of something for us. Chip will be back on the bike in a few months. He’s not 80-something. He's 50-something. July 17, 2014
