"First, animal protein would have contributed a greater percentage of calories to your ancestors' diet during the winter or dry season, when plants were usually dormant. Probably those animals were leaner than today, but let's not get into a debate about whether Stone Age animals were fat or thin; in the Teardown phase, it doesn't matter. Having said that, remember that well-marbled meat would have been available only during late summer and fall, when the animals that humans hunted had gorged on fruits and grains, activating their own "Store Fat for Winter" program."

"Chop radicchio and slice endive crosswise into l-inch pieces; rinse greens and dry in a salad spinner. Toss together with romaine in a serving bowl. Whisk the dressing ingredients in a small bowl or pulse in a small food processor or blender. Toss greens with dressing and shave cheese over top. Serve."

"While prewashed salad greens have been washed three times before being packaged, you may feel more comfortable giving them one more washing and then spinning them dry in a salad spinner. One of my most requested recipes from my patients, and local chefs, the "Caesar" dressing for this salad is equally good as a dip for veggies or drizzled over grilled or steamed asparagus. Use pre-washed romaine lettuce, as I do, and you'll make this salad more often."

"That's why, for example, orangutans in Borneo only store fat during fruiting season, prior to the dry season when food is less available.1 Historically, animals that stored sugar as fat made it through the winter and were more likely to reproduce come spring; those that didn't died off."

"A high-efficiency model extracts enough water to allow you to dry a load of towels in twenty-three minutes in your dryer, a little more than one third of the time it took with an old washer and dryer. Believe me, if you or a loved one does a lot of laundry, this is a big deal. Maytag is one of the market leaders for washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, and other home appliances. When I was looking for a new refrigerator for our home, I saw a 20.3-cubic foot bottom-freezer refrigerator from Amana that was Energy Star rated and priced from $1,999 to $2,225, depending on the extras."

"In the thirty years, 72 per cent (or nearly three-quarters) of graduation days had been dry, compared with only two-thirds (67 per cent) of days in the surrounding towns. In statistical terms, this meant that Princeton had some magical dry effect around graduation time and was drier than usual, whereas all the surrounding towns were as wet as they should be around that time of year. Even on the one day when there'd been a flood of 2.6 inches of rain in Princeton, curiously the rain had held off until the ceremony had finished.1?"

"Macular degeneration presents itself in two different forms: wet and dry. Ninety percent of cases involve the dry form, in which central vision gradually reduces and may progress to the wet form about 10 percent of the time.10 No proven treatment for the dry form of macular degeneration currently exists. The wet form causes a more rapid reduction in central vision, the development of new vessels, and possible vessel leakage. The wet form of macular degeneration is potentially treatable via laser photocoagulation."

"Steam rose from the wet sheets; within an hour, they were thoroughly dry. The attendant replaced the dry sheets with new ones, also drenched in ice-cold water. By this time, the monks' bodies had become the equivalent of a furnace. Those sheets were efficiently dried, as was a third batch."

"It's like choosing to rinse the food off your dishes instead of letting it dry into that crusty mess that you know full well will create a nasty kitchen chore later. Of course, you can't choose to avoid all situations that provoke negativity. Your daily commute may well be as inevitable as doing the laundry or a trip to the dentist. If you can't avoid a situation that brings you needless negativity, you have at least three options for curbing it: you can modify the situation, you can attend to different aspects of the situation, or you can change its meaning."

"It implied that Detrol was better at causing a dry bladder than a dry mouth, which is a frequent side effect of the pill. But the FDA pointed out that Pharmacia's study on selectivity was not even done on humans. Instead, it was a study on cats. The FDA said Alza had broken the law by claiming in a promotional letter sent to consumers that a study had shown that Ditropan reduced wetting accidents by up to 90 percent. The FDA said Alza had manipulated the study in a way that made Ditropan look more effective than it really was."

"The most energy-efficient control is also the most sophisticated: a moisture sensor that tells when the clothes are dry. Moisture sensors are tried, true, and cheap. Buying a dryer that uses a temperature control or a simple timer is a decision to throw away money on energy, and to risk overdrying (and prematurely aging) your clothes. The most intelligent choice of dryer is, of course, the clothesline. Precisely the same amount of energy is used to evaporate water from clothes on a line as in a dryer."

"Buy nuts in the shell or dry roasted without salt. ?Avoid nuts roasted in trans fat. ?Keep nuts in a dry, cool, dark place, or place them in a container in the refrigerator so oils in them won't turn rancid. ?Keep mixtures of different chopped nuts in the refrigerator to use in cooking. ?Remember that nuts are high in calories and omega-6 fats, so be careful not to overconsume. ?Eat plenty of the "best nuts" (walnuts and macadamia nuts have a very low omega-6-omega-3 ratio: 4-6:1. An ideal ratio is 1-4:1). ?Hazelnuts produce net antacid after digestion. ?"

"Rinse the leaves and blot dry. You can then place them in a food dehydrator or gather them in small bundles secured with a rubber band or string and hang them upside down in a dry, shady, well-ventilated location. Once crispy-dry, store the leaves in a glass jar in a cool, dark location. They should keep for one to two years. Roots. Drying is the best method of preserving roots. To prepare the roots, scrub them well and slice the very largest roots lengthwise so that the insides will dry properly. Do not slice the roots before scrubbing, or the valuable milky juice will be washed away."

"It should be kept in mind that, for some reason, the values for pulses were determined per-gram of dry weight; humans, however, cannot safely eat navy, pinto or red kidney beans in their dry state. Cooking, which results in a wet weight two-three times greater than the dry weight of raw beans, would obviously dilute the per-gram antioxidant values figures significantly. Irrespective of the differences evident in the two different charts, both indicate that the most antioxidant-rich plant foods in edible form are derived from the fruit, nut, and vegetable categories."

Alternatively, you can quick-dry them in an oven: Preheat the oven to 120°F and set the roots directly on the racks. Keep the door of the oven slightly ajar. Once dried (about 4 to 12 hours, depending on the size of your roots), store the roots in a glass jar in a cool, dry place. They will keep for about a year.

"We all recognize the immediate effects: dry mouth, motor agitation, sweating, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure, enlarged pupils, sleeplessness, and mental anxiety. The problem is that our lifestyle is chock full of stressors that keep the fight or flight response constantly active. Constant stress leads to poor digestion, autoimmune problems, glandular disease, poor healing, and poor functioning of critical organs. The effects of stress are cumulative and insidious."

"The immediate effects are dry mouth, motor agitation, sweating, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure, enlarged pupils, sleeplessness, and mental anxiety. There is such a thing as good stress. The challenges posed in our lives have the potential to enhance our physical and mental functioning. However, if stress is chronic and excessive, ir eventually causes harm. Chronic stress can cause anger or rage, fear or terror, fragmented or distorted thinking, impatience, emotional lability (erratic emotional states), memory loss, anxiety, and depression."

From a tube that ran along the backbone, oil dripped slowly into the lamp. When Raven entered the room, the woman looked up and cried: "How did you get here? You are the first man to enter this place." Raven told what he had done, and she bade him take a seat on the opposite side of the room. This woman was the soul (inua) of the whale."

"Mix them. dry the mixture in the sun. Then roast it over a fire until it can be shaped into pills. Take ten pills the size of a hemp seed every morning. Inside of a year, white hair will turn black, decayed teeth will grow again, and the body will become sleek and glistening. If an old man takes this medicine for a long period of time, he will develop into a young man. The one who takes it constantly will enjoy eternal life, and will not die." 183 A friend one day arrived to pay a visit to the solitary experimenter and philosopher, but all he found were Ko Hung's empty clothes."

"His flowering world becomes a wasteland of dry stones and his life feels meaningless—even though, like King Minos, he may through titanic effort succeed in building an empire of renown. Whatever house he builds, it will be a house of death: a labyrinth of cyclopean walls to hide from him his Minotaur. All he can do is create new problems for himself and await the gradual approach of his disintegration. "Because I have called, and ye refused ..."

"And thus they make announcement: " 'Sirs, after the lapse of a hundred thousand years the cycle is to be renewed; this world will be destroyed; also the mighty ocean will dry up; and this broad earth, and Sumeru, the monarch of mountains, will be burnt up and destroyed—up to the Brahma world will the destruction of the world extend.

"The third level of distraction that keeps us "in a bottle" and unable to tap the power of the ocean is the distraction that comes from the thoughts and feelings in our own minds: that important meeting, the embarrassing situation at work, feeling bad about not showing up at your sister's for Thanksgiving, planning a vacation, gearing up for that parent-teacher conference, remembering to call the doctor, picking up the dry cleaning, and so on. Subconscious fear, sadness, anger, or anxiety also distract and preoccupy our minds."

"And now I am beginning to breathe slowly and evenly—the way a hunted animal breathes, finally, when it has galloped, and galloped—when it is wrung dry, but, at last, is far away, so the panic begins to drain from the chest, from the wonderful legs, and the exhausted mind. Oh sweetness pure and simple, may I join you? I lie down next to them, on the sand. But to tell about what happens next, truly I need help. Will somebody or something please start singing?"

"There are two types of dry sauna: conventional and infrared. The conventional sauna uses electricity or burns wood as a source of generating heat. This type of sauna heats the air inside the unit to between 150 and 235 degrees Fahrenheit. You skin heats up by coming into contact with the hot air, and sweating soon follows. Because of the high temperature and the fact that conventional saunas heat the air, this type of sauna can be uncomfortable and difficult for some people to use effectively."

"Oatmeal is a better choice than dry cereal; and slippery flaxseed (when soaked in water), okra, and aloe vera are all examples of slippery wet foods that support a healthy gut and good bowel movements. Eat Fruits and Nonstarchy Vegetables Freely Choose fruits that have a low glycemic index, meaning they are broken down relatively slowly by your body so they don't rush into the bloodstream and cause a surge of insulin. Examples include berries of all sorts, pears, peaches, plums, dried apricots, cherries, bananas, apples, grapefruit, oranges, kiwis, and grapes."
