Web site gives rise to TV cooking show
Computer-savvy cooks know that food.epicurious.com is one of the most useful food-related sites on the Web. Now the Conde Nast site has inspired "Epicurious," a new TV show on the Discovery channel. The hosts will be chef Ishbel MacIntosh and Jonathan Karsh (pictured above).
Recipes, tips and techniques featured on the show will be available on the Web site. "Epicurious" premieres Oct. 3 from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. A second show airs from 11:30 a.m. to noon the same day.
All about seafood

Calcium and hearing loss
Recent research suggests that hearing loss may be connected with too little calcium in the diet. A study conducted by the University of Georgia and the Centers for Disease Control found that women ages 60 to 71 with impaired hearing had 25 percent to 30 percent lower calcium intake than women in the same age group with normal hearing. So drink your milk.
