*"New Book Reveals Biblical Truths Are Literally 'Etched in Stone.' A new book by 

Lisette Bassett-Brody is so remarkable. Despite her solid Christian credentials, 

"Etched in Stone: Archeological Discoveries that Prove the Bible" is like a 

beautiful antique that remains as functional as it is attractive. Former Arkansas 

Gov. Mike Huckabee says, "Etched in Stone" provides "every Bible-believing 

Christian with a valuable witnessing tool that should be required reading for every 

churchgoer today.""

*"To lose weight, focus on what you eat, not how much: study. Counting calories 

obsessively is not the key to trimming your waistline, according to a new study 

published Tuesday in JAMA. The study, from Stanford University researchers, 

found that paying attention to what you eat is more important than focusing on 

how much.

Researchers monitored the diets of more than 600 overweight adults. Even 

though the subjects did not focus on cutting calories, they lost an average of about 

12 pounds over the course of a year. The weight changes ranged from a reduction 

of 60 pounds to a gain of 15.

The study randomly assigned participants to reduce fat or carbohydrate intake. 

Subjects were not provided with food. Rather, they sat through 22 health 

education classes, where they learned how to shop, cook and dine nutritiously. 

They were also encouraged to be physically active.

The results, based on self-reports from the study subjects, showed that both the 

low-carb and low-fat groups reduced their daily calorie intake by an average of 

about 500 calories. Being assigned to the low-carb or low-fat group didn’t affect 

the results." By —Lesley McClurg, KQED Science. Feb 25, 2018, 11:41 AM EST.

"A box of vegetables is displayed at a 900 square meters farm garden on the 

rooftop of a postal sorting center, as part of a project by Facteur Graine (Seed 

Postman) association to transform a city rooftop as a vegetable garden to grow 

fruits, vegetables, aromatic and medicinal plants, with also chickens and bees in 

Paris, France, September 22, 2017."
