Heavy on olive oil, vegetables, fruit, nuts and fish, the diet most recently <a href="http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/02/25/172872408/spanish-test-mediterranean-diet-shines-in-clinical-study">has been shown</a> to reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes and dying compared with a typical low-fat diet.<p>But in many regions, including Nordic countries like Denmark and Sweden, it's not easy to go Med.

The Norwegian government is looking for the polar bear spotters. Your job: to warn researchers when bears come in a little too close. A successful candidate should enjoy the outdoors and be competent with firearms. An official said polar bear spotters will not have to fire a gun as long as they have a loud voice to scare off bears. That's reassuring.<p>It's MORNING EDITION. Fri, 03 May 2013 11:19:00 +0000 43790 at http://www.kunc.org
