This week on Car Talk, Santa comes through big-time for Tom and Ray in their never ending quest to escape difficult callers. They´re now the proud owners of the Get Off the Phone Excuse Machine, and it´s likely to get an early test, thanks to Nancy and the Tupperware-like noise coming from her Volvo. Elsewhere, desperate times call for wacko measures, as Jamie considers plugging a cracked head with oatmeal; Mark ponders giving his Suburban a full drive-train transplant into a new body; and Julie goes shopping for any car that can survive her husband´s aversion to the emergency brake. And, Jan ´´The Waver´´ responds to her husband´s concerns about her overly friendly driving style. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: December 24, 2011] 1.

What´s safe to eat when you have an autoimmune disease? Let´s face it. If you´re sick with an autoimmune condition such as Hashimoto´s, Celiac, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Crohn´s, ulcerative colitis, chronic fatigue, or one of the many other autoimmune conditions out there, you simply don´t have the energy to sift through piles of information just to try to figure out what´s ´´safe´´ to eat. All you want is to find a way to finally heal and to eat in a way that´s easy to follow, tastes good, and supports your healing...but it always seems so complicated. Eating to heal autoimmune disease doesn´t have to be so hard. You´ve probably already read about the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol on various blogs or heard about it from a friend. Perhaps you´ve read other books that tell you the whys and the hows of autoimmune paleo, but you´ve been left feeling a bit confused. You need less of the ´´why´´ and more of the ´´how to´´ - without having to learn how to make the perfect paleo donut or an enticing cricket paella. Stop relying on willpower, there´s a better way. There´s a way to do the autoimmune paleo diet that doesn´t rely on your willpower to resist the pizza or cake, or your ability to slave over a hot stove to produce three gourmet AIP meals per day. And you don´t have to survive on canned tuna and broccoli every day - or ever. Enter the art of meal planning, shopping like a PRO, and batch cooking, all of which you´ll learn in Healing with Paleo. People around you will start to notice that your skin looks great, and they´ll be wondering what beauty products you´ve been using. You´ll have more energy, a slimmer waistline, and more muscle definition. Finally a simple solution to the question of what´s ´´safe´´ to eat. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicole Chriqui.

This haunting debut from a brilliant new voice is sure to be as captivating as it is controversial, a shocking look at the imminent collapse of American civilization - and what will succeed it. In the aftermath of the switch from analog to digital TV, an anarchic movement known as Salvage hijacks the unused airwaves. Mixed in with the static´s random noise are dire warnings of the imminent economic, political, and social collapse of civilization-and cold-blooded lessons on how to survive the fall and prosper in the harsh new order that will inevitably arise from the ashes of the old. Hiram and Levi are two young men, former Scouts and veterans of countless Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. Now, on the blood-drenched battlefields of university campuses, shopping malls, and gated communities, they will find themselves taking on new identities and new moralities as they lead a ragtag band of hackers and misfits to an all-but-mythical place called Amaranth, where a fragile future waits to be born. 1.
