    And by the way, the cold pees are definitely a thing. Its called cold diuresis, and its why when a person goes into the cold after being roasty-toasty, they may quickly need to pee. As we learned earlier, the body performs a process called vasoconstriction in response to cold, reducing circulation to the skin and extremities. When this happens, the amount of blood in your core goes up, also boosting arterial blood pressure. Homeostatic nugget that you are, the body tries to lower this pressure by asking the kidneys to reduce your blood volume by taking water out of your blood and sending it to the bladder. Its also why coming in from the cold can make you thirsty: you made extra pee and now need to rehydrate.

    In writing this, I went outside and sat in the cold. I tried to imagine what could be good about the sensation, how the tightness in my chest could be a pleasure. I sucked cold air and turned it into clouds. I had to pee. My brain stem rang loud alarms about imminent danger. I know there are people who enjoy the cold but dear reader, I have not been able to transform myself into one of them. But if you are, stay warm out there. And if you start to ever feel confused or fumbling in cool weather, take it seriously. It might save your life.

    Traditionally, gnocchi a tiny, pillow-shaped dumpling pasta that's light and airy is made from flour, potatoes and eggs.

    First things first: where to find it. It's in the frozen aisle at Trader Joe's and it costs .69 for a 12-ounce bag (that's 2.5 servings at 1 cup each).

    So what's in it? Cauliflower is the main ingredient, followed by cassava flour (a gluten-free flour made from the root vegetable), potato starch, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.

    A 1-cup serving clocks in at 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. Traditionally, since some recipes call for cheese, a serving of gnocchi can run between 150 to 370 calories, with anywhere from 1 to 11 grams of fat.

    Trader Joe's cooking instructions recommend sauteing this gnocchi in a pan, though there are also directions for boiling and microwaving it, as well. You don't have to wait for this pasta to defrost, which is a big plus (you just pop the frozen dumplings in a pan), and add some butter or oil. It takes less than 10 minutes, too. One note here, though: Turn your stove's vent on, or else your whole house will smell like cauliflower.

    Golf legend Jack Nicklaus received stem cell therapy

    Retired pro-golfer Jack Nicklaus has spoken for the first time about how an experimental stem cell therapy has enabled him to play golf again after years of debilitating back pain.

    Speaking at the Unite to Cure conference on 27 April in Vatican City, Nicklaus also known as the Golden Bear told how he had suffered from back pain since he was a child, which was unsuccessfully treated with cortisol injections.

    Then two years ago, when he was 76, he met doctor Eckhard Alt at the birthday party of American healthcare philanthropist Denny Sanford. It was a serendipitous meeting; Alt had pioneered an experimental stem cell treatment in his clinic in Munich, Germany. I decided to give stem cells a go, said Nicklaus, who went on to become one of the first patients. He had to travel to Germany for the treatment because it is not approved in the US, where stem cell therapy is highly regulated.

    On April 24, nurses and associates across Advocate Health Care went to Springfield for the 13th annual Nurse Advocacy Day at the State Capitol. In total, over 80 Advocate nurses met with dozens of state legislators including Senate President John Cullerton and House Republican Leader Jim Durkin to discuss important health care issues.

    Eight nurses from Advocate Lutheran General Hospital attended the advocacy day this year. They met with senators and state representatives on critical health care initiatives that impact their profession like the state Medicaid budget, the nurse licensure compact, which would allow nurses licensed under a reciprocal compact state to also be licensed by any state within the compact, and supporting raising the legal age for buying cigarettes and tobacco products to 21.
