Sticking to a new diet or exercise routine can be challenging. It is even more challenging to put in all of the hard work that goes along with dieting and exercise, and not feel like you are making progress. Whether you are stepping on those dreadful scales, or you are looking in the mirror, sometimes you feel like you are wasting your time. The problem may be the implementation of a diet or exercise program that is not suited for your body type, or the problem could be more biological. A slow metabolism may be contributing to your inability to lose weight. Metabolism is a collection of chemical reactions that take place in the body's cells.

The Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) has confirmed that emerald ash borer (EAB) was discovered during a site inspection in Omaha’s Pulaski Park on June 6, 2016. Nebraska becomes the 27th state to confirm the presence of EAB, joining neighboring states of Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Colorado. The current treatment consideration zone extends from Fort Calhoun to Plattsmouth and from Gretna to east of Council Bluffs (see map, right column). The yearly window of time that is recommended for treating an ash tree is closing. If a tree is treated any time after mid-June the chemical will not distribute throughout the tree as much as it would have earlier in the spring so it would be best to wait until next year.
