Cubs galore

The time has come to find out where cub came from. I dealt with cub in my etymological dictionary, but a quick look at the word may not hurt, the more so as cub, which surfaced in English texts only in the early sixteenth century, turned out to be an aggressive creature: it ousted whelp, and later the verb to cub came into existence. Whatever the origin of cub (and the answer will be only partly illuminating), the constant suppression of old words by upstarts is a process worth noticing, regardl...

Batting at Home Plate: How My Rural Home Town Helped Create the South’s Newest Wilderness

Unloading the truck on the border of the Citico Creek Wilderness, I wrestle on my pack full of a weekend’s worth of supplies—including my old crosscut saw. As I walk through a smoke cloud of bacon grease smoldering off the neighboring hunting camp’s stove, I threw up a friendly wave. A few respond, but from behind the campfire, someone grumbles, “You probably ain’t even from around here, Ranger Boy.” After a few seasons as a Wilderness Ranger, your gut tells you when to stop or keep moving,...

Revealed: The Top 10 Custom Motorcycles of 2018

What a year it’s been for the custom scene. With so many great bikes crossing our radar, it’s almost impossible to pick out any personal favorites. So it’s just as well that our annual Bike Of The Year roundup is purely data driven. It’s based on page views, incoming links, and the number of social media shares. As always, it’s also weighted according to how long ago the bike was featured. A couple of interesting points to note: If we weren’t dealing with customs here, two factory bikes wou...

Animal of the month: the pride [interactive guide]

Pride is one of the most widely-recognised animal collectives in the world. We often picture lions among their family unit, whether they be standing proudly together or hunting down a doomed antelope. These famous social groups are usually formed of between three and ten adult females, two or three males, and the pride’s latest litters of cubs, and they live together (most of the time) across Africa and in the Gir Forest Sanctuary. We say most of the time because lions do in fact spend a fair am...

The Big Cats of the Serengeti

The four days I spent in the Serengeti were full of incredible experiences. One of the things you always dream about is the opportunity to spend time with big cats. From shy Cheetahs to Lazy Lions or the ever elusive Leopard, there’s something captivating about the alpha predators of Africa. At the outset of my safari I hoped I’d spot, perhaps, one or two large male lions and a leopard or two. A cheetah or two if I was lucky and a pride of females with cubs. Little did I know what the Serengeti ...

Looking for the Cub Foods' Sunday promotions? They're on Thursdays

Cub Foods is shaking up its schedule for price discounts, moving its Sunday-to-Saturday specials to a Thursday-to-Wednesday schedule. The Star Tribune reports on the change by Cub parent Supervalu Inc., which was made to avoid out-of-stock problems but has confused some customers used to searching Sunday ads for new deals that day. Nationally, lots of grocers start weekly specials midweek, when stores are quieter, but Cub has long started on Sundays. That meant that workers were often switchin...

Why Energy Transfer Partners, Canadian Solar, and Cubic Slumped Today

Monday was a great day for many investors, as major stock market benchmarks hit new record-high levels. Gains of between 0.5% and 1% came on the heels of solid performance in the energy market and continuing enthusiasm about the future direction of the U.S. economy. Yet even with those big gains for the stock market broadly, some stocks didn't participate in the rally, and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP) , Canadian Solar (NASDAQ: CSIQ) , and Cubic (NYSE: CUB) all suffered big declines. ...

Unashamed to Sing

I was born a Cubs fan. I purchased baseball cards and filled my mind with player names and statistics while I filled my mouth with terrible baseball card chewing gum. That gum lasted about 90 seconds, but my love for my team endures today. My passionate enthusiasm for the Cubs has led me to embrace traditions that would not normally be my style. At the end of every victory, the home stadium, Wrigley Field, is filled with the Steve Goodwin’s song, “Go Cubs, Go.” You can literally hear ...

Grand Teton’s most famous grizzly bear just tragically lost her only cub

Photo: Denali National Park and Preserve Just last month , at long last, a well-known female grizzly bear named No. 399 emerged from her long hibernation at Grand Teton National Park. Walking beside her was a single, blond-faced cub, named Snowy by local bear watchers. This was a big deal for a couple of reasons. First, she was alive, which proved the Wyoming hunter who had boasted of killing her months before had been bluffing. Second, this 20-year-old grizzly is, as a columnist for the Jacks...

Not a dog’s chance, or one more impenetrable etymology

Part 3: Cubs at large By this time, the thrust of the posts united by the title “Not a dog’s chance” must be clear. While dealing with some animal names, we plod through a swamp (or a bog, or a quagmire) and run into numerous monosyllabic words of varying structure (both vowels and consonants alternate in them), lacking a clear etymology, and designating several creatures, sometimes having nothing to do with one another (for instance, “doe” and “grasshopper,” though this is an extreme case).

Sport and Society for Arete -Spring Training Optimism

The atmosphere at Spring Training is one of the special qualities of baseball in America. The optimism generated by fans and players alike tends to reach beyond reality. Rookies and career minor leaguers anticipate a breakthrough season. Veterans look forward to the dawning of a career year. Spring is the season of rebirth, hope and high expectations. The failures and disappointments of the previous season, or decade, or in one case, the previous century, are cast aside. This spring the expecta...
