The magazine is set to open with a 450,000 rate base, and will complement Oz’s syndicated television talk show.”He’s convincing America that a healthy lifestyle is the bedrock of happiness,” says Herzig in a statement. “I’m looking forward to working with him to create a rich, imaginative editorial package for that transformative message.” Hearst Corp. president and CEO Steve Swartz and Hearst Magazines president David Carey looked inward in recruiting Redbook editor-in-chief Jill Herzig for the same position at Dr. Oz The Good Life.Her hiring, announced Wednesday, comes after word that the magazine will go to a 10X frequency with the Aug./Sept. 2014 launch after successful test releases in January and April. They were under the editorial direction of Alison Brower, but she is leaving Hearst Magazines to return to California.In terms of magazine seniority, Dr Oz is quite a change for Herzig because Redbook is 111 years old. However, shaking up the norm isn’t something Herzig is shy about doing. She did upgrade the beauty and fashion portion of Redbook content from 30 to 50 percent in April 2013 while ending such former editorial mainstays as parenting and relationships. When she was at Redbook she told min that her role was “a never-ending process of keeping Redbook fresh.”From 2003-2010, Herzig was Glamour executive editor and top lieutenant to editor-in-chief Cindi Leive. Earlier career stops included SELF, New Woman and Cosmopolitan under the late editor-in-chief Helen Gurley Brown.

Share Diana Nguyen / Marfa Public RadioSharon Wilson checking out an oil and gas facility near Balmorhea.Funky smelling fumes, dimmer skies, and increased health concerns have all been reported by residents in the Southwest corner of the Permian Basin as the oil and gas industry expands. Growth has been happening north of the Davis Mountains over the last two years. Concerns about greenhouse gases and toxic emissions have spurred some citizens — like Sharon Wilson — to try to keep oil companies accountable themselves, one rig at a time.During a recent drive along roads in Reeves County near Balmorhea, Wilson is hunting for oil and gas emissions.Specifically, hydrocarbons like methane, benzene, and other vapors escaping from oil and gas facilities. Today she’s checking out sites owned by the Houston-based Apache Corporation.As she gets out of her car, Wilson points out the odor.“Can you smell it? It’s definitely pretty stinky.”Wilson is a part of Earthworks, an environmental advocacy group that says oil and gas operations are threatening the health of people who live in the South Permian Basin and the environment. Other than her nose, she uses a special infrared camera to find chemicals the human eye can’t see.Diana Nguyen / Marfa Public RadioSharon Wilson using an FLIR camera to track oil and gas emissions.At a glance, a pipe at a natural gas site may not seem like much until Wilson points her camera at it. She says, “I’ll show you in the camera. All of this equipment along here, you’re going to see a lot of air pollution. It’s pretty alarming.”Wilson’s camera can reveal plumes of smoke pouring into the air, though the camera can’t tell the difference between say, steam or toxic chemicals. But, Wilson is pretty sure what she’s seeing is pollution.“If you’re seeing something and it’s coming from the equipment on an oil and gas site then the gases are most likely going to be hydrocarbons. No matter what the industry tries to tell us. It’s certainly not cotton candy.”There is a certain amount of emissions oil and gas sites are allowed to legally discharge. Apache Corporation maintains they stay within emission standards. But, in general, Wilson and Earthworks say operators in Texas aren’t being monitored enough.“Nobody’s measuring it. The state does not go out and measure it. The state is not out here doing air testing.”Diana Nguyen / Marfa Public RadioSharron Wilson on the side of a Reeves County road.Professor Gunnar Schade of Texas A&M University agrees. “I often get asked why are we not finding these [leaks], supposedly there are so many leaks out there,” he said. “Well, the dominant leaks occur where you’re not looking.”Schade has a doctorate in natural sciences and his research focuses on the transfer of gases to the atmosphere. He says regulators aren’t keeping up with the Texas oil industry when it comes to hydrocarbon leaks. The Texas Commision on Environmental Quality, or TCEQ, disagrees. It’s the department in charge of monitoring emissions discharged by completed wells and refineries. In a statement, TCEQ told Marfa Public Radio it does routine inspections of oil and gas sites and has air quality monitoring stations around the state. In the Permian Basin, the commission has four stations to assess the general air quality of the region, which spans thousands of miles.TCEQ also allows companies to do their own assessments. If a company performing a self-evaluation reports a violation it is immune from any penalties. To Schade, these safeguards aren’t doing the job. He says there’s evidence that too many greenhouse gases and toxins are escaping from facilities.Schade also thinks this is a situation that has a simple solution. “Fixing this problem is easy. You do what the prior administration had a suggested. Mainly you look for where the biggest leaks are and you fix those,” he said.For this to work, regulators, like TCEQ, would need to go to every site and do inspections, but Schade says, “Right now, that’s not being done.” According to him, if people want TCEQ to respond to oil and gas sites they’re worried about they need to make their voices heard.“There’s not going to be much response from the regulatory side unless people speak up and say this pad over here I think has a lot of emissions because I wake up with a bloody nose every morning or I smell it all the time.”In an email, a TCEQ official wrote if a leak is an “imminent threat to health or to the environment” they’ll respond within 24 hours or less.Mitch Borden / Marfa Public RadioBalmorhea’s water tower.Before late 2016 there wasn’t really any oil development around Balmorhea. It was known for its pristine natural springs and clear skies. Now, some individuals are claiming emissions are affecting their health and the region’s skies are getting murkier as oil development ramps up.Alfredo Gutierrez is a truck driver from Chicago who hauls freight all over the country. While driving through the Southern Permian Basin for the first time he says he spotted something.“When the sun was going down I saw like the smoke on the air and it was like a clear sky, but this was a different kind of smoke.”Gutierrez is describing the dense haze that sometimes hangs low in the sky around Balmorhea, which he wasn’t expecting to see.“You see this in like a city like Dallas [or] Houston, but not in here with nothing around,” he said. “This is probably like a really contaminated place.”There is no way to tell where the haze is coming from because there is little to no data on the air quality in the Southern Permian Basin and Big Bend. That’s about to change though. Later this month, Dr. Gunnar Schade will begin a year-long project, tracking emissions around Reeves County. This study should establish a baseline record of air quality for future research and help form a better picture of how the oil and gas industry is affecting the South Permian Basin.Diana Nguyen contributed to this report.

We have managed to take care of our daytime work hours perfectly, thanks to some spectacular note-taking, travel-booking and other time-saving apps — but what about after work?Don’t they say, work hard but play harder?I believe in this maxim and try my best to make the most of every moment.Related: 6 Apps That Help You Stick to Your GoalsSo I decided to take time to share three wonderful apps on my phone that help me to take care of my after-work needs.

FitTime Stats — a gym in your phoneThere can be 1,000 reasons why you can’t hit the gym daily. Perhaps you are traveling or occupied in late-night meetings, or, as is common these days, you are working on an important project and lose track of time. Or you are simply too exhausted to commute all the way to the gym.FitTime Stats fits right into your busy schedule and allows you to take up simple exercises, any time of the day. With three levels of exercises, you can go as slow or as fast as you want, and you don’t need any special equipment for the same. The picture-plus-text layout allows you to understand even the most complex exercises.Moreover, it comes with an alarm, so even if you don’t remember to make time for your daily workout, it will remind you — sorry, no excuses! The best part about the app is it doesn’t restrict you with time constraints, so whether you want a short session or a full-blown two-hour workout, you can do it using the app.What’s more, it has a BRAG ABOUT IT button, so you can share your workout stats with your friends on Facebook. All-in-all, it’s a great after-hours app that allows you to stay fit no matter what time of the day it is.Related: 7 Apps to Help Integrate Tech With Self-Improvement Goals2. iSleight — magic in your phoneEvery once in a while, you will have an occasion to impress a business acquaintance or a date, and a true gentleman is always prepared.

I will then give my phone to my friend and ask them to shuffle the cards and pick any one card.They pick the card and behold — it’s the seven of hearts! How? Watch the trailer or download the app to see how it works.On the face of it, it is a simple card-guessing game. But despite letting your friends investigate the app as much as they want, it won’t let them guess the secret of your magic.So go ahead, show off the sleight of your hand — or your magic app to be precise.3. Hello Vino — wine wiz in your phoneSo I am at this networking dinner with a couple of industry bigwigs after a conference. Which wine goes best with spaghetti bolognese? Should I order cabernet or merlot? Aren’t they both red wines after all?Whether you are living in the west or east, making sense of wine pairings and ordering the right wine is difficult. But if you are moving in affluent circles, you need to get your wine basics right. Thanks to Hello Vino, it’s easy for everyone to understand the vast and often mysterious world of wine.Hello Vino comes with a label scanner, wine shopping guide and food pairings guide, so every question you may have about wine is answered in the app — from ordering the right wine to taking care of entertainment in the party to losing weight after savoring that spicy spaghetti bolognese.With these three apps, your after-work life will be much easier, as they collectively offer something cool, healthy and impressive.If you really want to take non-work productivity to the next level, here are some more ideas.Try the gift-tracking app that allows you to sync your gift list and track your gift purchases.Jamie’s 20 Minute Meals lets you fix a decent meal in just 20 minutes.As a good night’s sleep is the key to increased productivity, the last in my list is Sleep Cycle alarm clock that analyzes sleep patterns and wakes you in the lightest phase, so you don’t wake up feeling annoyed or tired.Related: 5 Apps That Can Help Executives Strike Work-Life Balance Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
