Popular Testosterone Therapy Lacks Evidence Testosterone-replacement therapies promise to bring increased muscle mass, a heightened sex drive, more energy and maybe even some extra vigor in the golf swing for men with "low-T," or low levels of testosterone. But in the last five years, even as low-T has become a buzz word, some have questioned the claims of products that offer to boost levels of the hormone and improve fitness, libido and mental focus. Through prescription patches, injections and gels, along with the advent of "T-Clinics," where men can receive testosterone injections, the hormone is more readily available than ever, said Dr. Robert Schwartz, a geriatrics professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. But in June, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that all manufacturers of approved testosterone products must include a label that warns users about the risk of blood clots in the veins that the products may pose.

Battle of Ideas | Battles in Print In truth schools already see themselves as “engines of social mobility”, where children’s failure to achieve is understood as stemming from a home life deficient in parenting skills, knowledge or opportunity. The result is that a teacher’s traditional role of passing on knowledge to the next generation has become a side-act to the demand of creating a fair society, but this is a project in which schools can never succeed Sally Millard, 25 November 2011 In face of policy rhetoric about the Big Society and ‘people power’, what happens to autonomy and agency when unseen experts and policy wonks seek to subvert competent adults’ decisions about what they eat, how many units they drink or whether they give up time to help the community.

Eight Toughest Interview Questions | The Corner Office - Part 1 Interviews are designed to do just one thing: identify the best possible candidate for the advertised job. And sometimes it may feel that the questions being asked have been designed to deliberately catch you out or make you question whether you are up to the job or not. But that’s not their intention. Some questions aim to establish how well you cope under pressure, others will be to reveal your personality or to see what your career aspirations are. If you want to avoid an interview disaster, here are some of the toughest interview questions and their suggested responses. Q: “Tell me about yourself” This is perhaps the most open-ended question of them all and is typically used by interviewers as a warm-up question to give you the opportunity to shine. A: I started my media sales career five years ago as a telesales representative, rising through the ranks before gaining promotion to sales manager three years later. Q: “What are your salary expectations?” Q: “Why should we hire you”
bubbl.us | brainstorm and mind map online Beach Bummer: Toxic Slime Will Hit Lake Erie Again Slimy green mats of toxic algae will again threaten the western shores of Lake Erie later this summer, according to an algae forecast released today (July 10). The predicted Lake Erie algal bloom will be smaller than in the past three years, but still above the average for the past 12 years, according to the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA) forecast. The algae are also expected to collect on certain shorelines instead of spreading out evenly across the lake, NOAA said in a statement.

This is the third year the agency has forecast the amount of toxic slime that would choke Lake Erie during the late summer.

Tagxedo - Word Cloud with Styles Future Drones Could Mimic Birds and Bats The flight habits of birds, bats and insects could inspire new designs of flying robots, say scientists who are using nature as a guide for developing innovative drone technologies. As part of a broad investigation of bioinspired flight control, 14 different research teams are stealing ideas from nature to make novel improvements to the capabilities of drones. "Whether this is avoiding obstacles, picking up and delivering items, or improving the takeoff and landing on tricky surfaces, it is hoped the solutions can lead to the deployment of drones in complex urban environments in a number of different ways," officials from the Institute of Physics (IOP) in the United Kingdom said in a statement. [5 Surprising Ways Drones Could Be Used in the Future] These technologies, IOP added, could be used for a variety of purposes, ranging from "military surveillance and search-and-rescue efforts to flying camera phones and reliable courier services.

The Mind Trick That Will Change the Way You Write Cover Letters Forever Finally. You found it. The dreamiest dream job that ever waltzed into existence. You sit down to craft your cover letter, and the primary thought in your mind is: I hope they choose me. Anxiety floods your body, triggering a rush of paralyzing thoughts and questions: Am I good enough? What pours out of your fingertips goes something like this: Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing to inform you of my interest in applying for the position of social media director at Save the Dolphins. You stop mid-sentence, realizing that your cover letter sounds totally depressing and awkward. The good news? Pretend. Pretend that the person you're writing to already loves and respects you. This person already gets what makes you great. You could even pretend that you just received an email from your soon-to-be boss, saying: Hey, since you're practically already part of the family, we'd all love to learn a little more about you! So, tell us: What inspired you to apply for this position? We're so curious!
