Read the entire post with photos: Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler: Jack Fruit---the Yummiest Fruit I've Had:

"So what is jack fruit?  The flavor is an addictively delicious symphony of pineapple, banana, mango and apple.  While the fruit is used in Vietnamese desserts such as puddings and cakes, I prefer the raw version where I can taste every one of its special notes.  Perfectly ripe jack fruit is like no other fruit you will ever taste.  The texture is also unusual---somewhat fibrous, it is an excellent source of dietary fiber ( as well as high in protein, potassium and vitamin B). Jack fruit is also the largest tree-borne fruit in the world growing up to a ginormous 80 lbs, and as much as a yard in length. "

Travelers’ antibiotics may do more harm than good | Reuters

Read the entire article for more insights & recommendations:
Travelers’ antibiotics may do more harm than good | Reuters:

"People who travel to exotic locales and take along their own antibiotics are more likely to come back colonized with resistant bacteria, according to a new Finnish study.

Many travelers take along antibiotics to treat so-called “traveler’s diarrhea” - and if they have the medications along, they are likely to use them even for minor ailments, according to lead author Dr. Anu Kantele of Helsinki University Central Hospital.

In most cases this is a bad idea, she said.

“If you have mild or moderate diarrhea, you will not need antibiotics” but should drink lots of fluids and, if needed, take medication that relieves the diarrhea like loperamide (Imodium), if you brought any, she said."

Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler: Best of Cabo:

"I’m just returning from January in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.   I rented an apartment and did something I have never done --- I did not cook one lunch or dinner for the month.  I grew up on Mexican food and think of myself as somewhat of an expert, so I made it my personal mission to seek out Cabo’s best.  Here’s what floated to the top of my list (which includes many of our friends who visited opinions as well)."

Why Tiger Woods May Be Finished - Bloomberg Business

Read the full article and see the visual analysis:
Why Tiger Woods May Be Finished - Bloomberg Business:

"All his life, Tiger Woods has been chasing the number 19. That’s how many major championship wins he needs to top Jack Nicklaus and unequivocally become the greatest golfer of all time. He has just five to go, but as his game falters — he dropped out of the Farmers Insurance Open on Thursday, the 6th tournament he’s failed to complete in eight PGA starts — there’s a bigger, scarier obstacle in his way: His next birthday."

This is the end for Tiger Woods | For The Win

Read the full article:  This is the end for Tiger Woods | For The Win:

"This isn’t any fun anymore.

Watching Tiger Woods play golf used to be one of the most thrilling things to witness in all of sports. It took your breath away. It made golf cool. Woods in his prime was like Michael Jordan, almost sinister in his drive to win.

It’s not fun to watch Woods play golf anymore. It’s sad, and a little dark. It reminds us all how quickly greatness can fade."

Here is what everyone thinks about Tiger Woods' Phoenix Open showing - CBSSports.com

Read the full article and what folks have to say: Here is what everyone thinks about Tiger Woods' Phoenix Open showing - CBSSports.com:

"Tiger Woods is broken, apparently.

I say that not because he shot an 82 on Friday at the Phoenix Open but because everyone else has takes on what's wrong with him.

Here's a roundup of what coaches, former golfers and a bunch of random people think is up with the 14-time major winner."
