Climber Cory Richards on How to Fix the Mess on Everest

Climber Cory Richards on How to Fix the Mess on Everest

Photographer and climber Cory Richards has gained some perspective since he became the first American to make a winter summit of an 8,000-meter peak, Gasherbrum II, in 2011. His work for National Geographic magazine has taken him all over the globe, from floating in a dugout canoe among hippos and crocodiles in Botswana’s Okavango Delta to tracking down the world’s happiest people.

Still, he is perhaps most widely known as one of the messy-haired dudes in the Snapchat series #Everestnofilter, where he and partner Adrian Ballinger documented their experience climbing the world’s tallest mountain over two years. In the second season, Richards revealed his struggles with depression, PTSD, alcoholism, and bipolar disorder. 

He has since been sober and is now focused on a grueling training plan from his home in Boulder, Colorado, to tackle his current goal: climbing a new route on Everest’s Northeast Face without supplemental oxygen. … Read the rest

Uncle Nearest’s New 1884 Small Batch Whiskey: What You Need to Know

Uncle Nearest’s New 1884 Small Batch Whiskey: What You Need to Know

The Uncle Nearest whiskey brand has a new bottle on its way, but with this bottle, it’s also focusing on what’s most important: family. Starting with the first batch, the new Uncle Nearest 1884 will honor its namesake’s living descendants by including them in the curation of the whiskey.

Uncle Nearest whiskey is named for the first known African-American master distiller Nathan “Nearest” Green, a former slave who by all accounts taught Jack Daniel everything there was to know about whiskey distillation. The whiskey, which is currently distilled by a contract distiller, is the work of a team seeking to reproduce and honor what Green did more than 150 years ago.

1884 was the last year founder and CEO Fawn Weaver and her team of researchers believe Nearest put his own whiskey into a barrel, so this new … Read the rest

Can BBQ Make You Binge Drink? It’s More Common Than You Think

Can BBQ Make You Binge Drink? It’s More Common Than You Think

Before cracking open another beer at the next backyard bash, some sobering news: Those ribs could cause you to binge drink. Animal research from Penn State College of Medicine found greasy food can trigger a feedback circuit in the brain, compelling you to chow down even more. Coincidentally, it’s the same brain region that controls binge drinking. So gorging on fatty foods may flip the switch on our desire for alcohol, says neuroscientist and study co-author Yuval Silberman.

Perhaps obviously, the amount of greasy grub makes a difference. Have sensible servings of hot dogs, chips, etc., and you won’t feel compelled to drink heavily. “We think it’s the eating behavior, and not the food itself, that may predispose to binge-drinking,” Silberman says. To avoid getting tanked, switch between alcohol and water, and pace yourself … Read the rest

Gothic Cathedrals, Gazpacho, and Pop-up Flamencos: The 4-Day Weekend in Seville

Gothic Cathedrals, Gazpacho, and Pop-up Flamencos: The 4-Day Weekend in Seville

Go ahead, call it “Sevilla” if you want. There’s more flair to it, and Seville is all flair, all the time. If you aren’t encountering a drive-by flamenco show while winding through the twists and turns of the Santa Cruz neighborhood, then you’re chasing tapas like gazpacho and boquerones (fresh anchovies) with a sherry-Sprite combo called rebujito. You’ll enjoy dinner-time serenades, photograph the azulejo-tiled buildings, and marvel at millennium-old architecture—with time to loll about in the shadow of the world’s largest Gothic cathedral or sunbathe in a rooftop terrace pool.
