Don Nelson was a basketball lifer, spending five decades in the NBA as a player and coach. In retirement, however, Nellie has found a new love….Marijuana.During a press appearance ahead of a ceremony celebrating the Warriors 2006-7 team that took down the #1 seed Mavericks in the first round, Nelson was asked what he’s been doing since leaving the game. His answer was simple: ‘I’ve been smoking some pot.’Nellie is apparently good buds with Willie Nelson, so that pretty much tells you everything you need to know, other than why he’s dressed like a 1980’s wrestling manager.He did clarify that he never smoked any ganja during his playing or coaching days, so apparently he’s making up for lost time. Some people play nine holes a day in retirement, Nellie smokes nine bowls a day.

Only one in ten flight passengers are willing to change the number of times they fly despite three-quarters accepting that flying contributes to climate change, according to new research.The findings, published on TravelMole.com, involved surveying 487 passengers at Manchester airport – over half of whom said they did not know that carbon offsetting was possible.Almost eight out of ten flight passengers had heard of offsetting schemes, but under 50 percent knew that they could be used to reduce the environmental impacts of their flight.Commenting on the findings, Dr Paul Hooper, the scientist who led the research from Manchester Metropolitan University’s Centre for Air Transport and the Environment, told the website that confusion surrounded the “existence, purpose and methods” of carbon offsetting.”Given that offset schemes are currently voluntary, much more needs to be done to raise awareness of the existence and benefits of such schemes if we want to see greater uptake by passengers,” he said.People can buy carbon offsets for the greenhouse gases they cannot avoid emitting. They enable people to take responsibility for their carbon emissions by paying someone to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere on their behalf.
