Food vs you: How your dinner controls you - health - 06 August 2013 FOR those of us who would like to shed a few pounds, dietary advice usually boils down to brute arithmetic. Reduce energy input by eating less, and increase energy output by exercising more. Simple. One reason is that our evolutionary history has given us a powerful drive to eat rich foods when they are available. But there's more to it than that. How to feel refreshed even after too little sleep - and why you MUST have an afternoon nap. Never wake up tired again Secret to waking up refreshed is to work out your sleep in 90 minute cyclesNapping will improve your memory, reaction time, and productivityProfessor Richard Wiseman says napping 'may even save your life'PLUS: How to stop snoring forever! By Professor Richard Wiseman Published: 23:43 BST, 23 March 2014 | Updated: 12:31 BST, 24 March 2014 If you follow Professor Richard Wiseman's tips, you could become a 'super sleeper' and never wake up tired again Insomnia is the modern malaise. We are now living in a world that never sleeps. In the 1980s, a scientist from the University of Chicago conducted perhaps the best-known, and most disturbing, study into the topic. He and his colleagues wired up a group of rats to a machine that measured their brain activity, and then placed each of the animals on a stationary disc above a bowl of water. After a month, all of them had died, thus proving that sleep is essential for life. Scroll down for video Avoid the temptation. Here’s a simple table to guide you:

The Munger Operating System: A Life That Really Works In 2007, Charlie Munger gave the commencement address at USC Law School, opening his speech by saying, “Well, no doubt many of you are wondering why the speaker is so old. Well, the answer is obvious: He hasn’t died yet.” Fortunately for us, Munger has kept on ticking. The commencement speech is an excellent response to the Big Question: How do we live a life that really works? It has so many of Munger’s core ideas that we think the speech represents the Munger Operating System for life. To get what you want, deserve what you want. It’s such a simple idea. Learn to love and admire the right people, alive or dead. A second idea that I got very early was that there is no love that’s so right as admiration-based love, and that love should include the instructive dead. Acquiring wisdom is a moral duty as well as a practical one. And there’s a corollary to that proposition which is very important. Learn to fluency the big multidisciplinary ideas of the world and use them regularly. Be reliable.

Children from low-income homes – who tend to be fatter than their counterparts from wealthier families – have become slightly, but significantly, leaner in recent years, a new government study reports. Epidemiologist Ashleigh May at the US Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, and her colleagues used data from the Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System, in which medical workers recorded the height and weight of about 11.6 million preschool children from 43 US states and territories who were enrolled in government nutrition-assistance programmes between 2008 and 2011. The researchers then adjusted the data to account for differences due to race, age and sex. In 18 states and one territory, the proportion of children classified as obese declined significantly during the four years, they found. Tide turning The researchers cannot be certain about what is driving obesity rates downward. More From New Scientist

Cámaras de vigilancia Occasional Address Hi. I gave an “occasional address” for a graduation ceremony at my old Uni, The University of Western Australia. Here is the video. The text is below. “In darker days, I did a corporate gig at a conference for this big company who made and sold accounting software. And if the mountain was meant to be a symbol of life’s challenges, and the loss of limbs a metaphor for sacrifice, the software guy’s not going to get it, is he? However, I have had large groups of people listening to what I say for quite a few years now, and it’s given me an inflated sense of self-importance. You might find some of this stuff inspiring, you will find some of it boring, and you will definitely forget all of it within a week. So listen up, or you’ll get lost, like a blind man clapping in a pharmacy trying to echo-locate the contact lens fluid. Here we go: 1. I never really had one of these big dreams. 2. 3. Empathy is intuitive, but is also something you can work on, intellectually. 4. But don’t despair! 5. 6.

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing Fixing broken brains: a new understanding of depression - health - 29 July 2013 Editorial: "New thinking means new hope on depression" ONE OF Vanessa Price's first chronic cases involved a woman we'll call Paula. Paula came to the London Psychiatry Centre, where Price is a registered nurse, after two years of unrelenting depression. First she stopped seeing her friends. Then she stopped getting out of bed. Finally, she began cutting herself. The steady rise in this diagnosis over the past two decades reflects a little-known trend. The stubborn nature of these cases of depression has, however, spurred research into new and sometimes unorthodox treatments.

10 películas anarquistas imperdibles El anarquismo suele ser pensado como una postura que aboga por el caos, la destrucción y el sinsentido, acusaciones infundadas, pues se trata precisamente de lo contrario. Esta postura cuestiona muchas de las convenciones sociopolíticas actuales como las jerarquías de mando, las democracias representativas, la existencia del aparato estatal, policíaco y militar; en síntesis, esta perspectiva defiende la libertad del individuo por encima de cualquier autoridad. El pensamiento necesario para imaginar un mundo en el que cada uno respete y conviva con la libertad del otro ha crecido por varias ramas; pocas doctrinas o movimientos han provocado una gama de posturas tan amplia. Su objetivo es caminar hacia una sociedad sin amos ni soberanos. Cero en conducta (Jean Vigo, Francia, 1933) Luego de regresar de unas vacaciones de verano, un grupo de niños burlará todo intento de ser disciplinados por los ineptos adultos que los rodean; simplemente un clásico. ¡Viva Zapata!
