One of my readers contacted me for a natural solution to a common but embarrassing problem, smelly feet. Sweaty feet and foot odor are quite common, especially among dancers, athletes or as the hot weather sets in. Wearing shoes and socks that don’t breathe or rough, dry skin on your feet can promote foot odor. Bromhidrosis, foot odor, is due to bacteria that breed and multiply in warm feet, socks, and shoes. The soles of your feet have thousands of sweat glands that produce perspiration, which can breakdown in contact with certain bacteria, causing an odor.
I love to sing. I sing in public, I sing in the bathroom while I’m brushing my teeth (that can be messy), I sing while I’m cooking, and even while I’m working. At the office, people know when I’m coming down the hall, as my sounds precede me. As a result of that happy propensity, and an ill-advised governmental policy, it’s unlikely that I’ll be traveling to Winnipeg any time soon.
State funds will enable Cape Cod Community College to launch an airplane mechanic program, the town council roads subcommittee will continue work on finding a way to pay for private road repairs, and find out about renovations being made at Barnstable Municipal Airport.
A federal grant will help local fire departments pay for much needed training, new parking meters go online today in Hyannis, and we have some important biking safety tips from Police Chief Paul Macdonald.
Barnstable Little League is one step closer to getting a new field, an effort to preserve the land surrounding Lowell park in Cotuit awaits a vote, and the Hyannis Youth and Community Center could soon have an upgraded skate park and basketball court.
The Cape Cod Canal was opened for business 100 years ago today, with the removal of a last dam finally connecting Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay. Since then, it has been a flurry of boats and bridges, commuters and currents, fishermen and freighters, bike paths and clam shacks.
When did we get so angry?
The local reaction—and angry overreaction—to the news that unaccompanied children detained by the federal government may be housed temporarily on Joint Base Cape Cod, paints a sad and sorry picture of the dismal state of the public discourse in our community, in our commonwealth, and in our nation—and is a stark reminder of the regretful lack of compassion and understanding by many in our midst who oppose the idea of providing refuge for children without even knowing the details of their proposed brief visit.
