The Best Tech Tools and Fitness Plans to Get in Shape Is there extra brain-fog inducing sunspot activity this morning or something? "I actually use the zero to 100 pushups workout plan" That workout 'plan' is essentially: do more pushups than you did last time (based on unrealistic expectations of what I think from a straw poll of one) "Music may make it easier to keep going, but it isn't supposed to be easy anyway." Err...what? "The best thing you can do for yourself is by a heart rate monitor.... Wait, so if I want to monitor my heart rate, I should buy a heart rate monitor? "I'm doing the couch to 5k running plan" Do you have a time goal or something? "BTW the iPod shuffle is like the best iPod for running" What that you say!?

This Awesome Urn Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die | Design for Good You don't find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, the product designer Gerard Moline has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition. His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. I, personally, would much rather leave behind a tree than a tombstone. Editor's Note: The Bios Urn is a patented design of Estudimoline, the design company of Gerard Moline, a Catalan artist and product designer who designed Bio Urn for animals in 1999.

Cognitive Dissonance Understanding this experiment sheds a brilliant light on the dark world of our inner motivations. The ground-breaking social psychological experiment of Festinger and Carlsmith (1959) provides a central insight into the stories we tell ourselves about why we think and behave the way we do. The experiment is filled with ingenious deception so the best way to understand it is to imagine you are taking part. So sit back, relax and travel back. The time is 1959 and you are an undergraduate student at Stanford University… As part of your course you agree to take part in an experiment on ‘measures of performance’. Little do you know, the experiment will actually become a classic in social psychology. The set-up Once in the lab you are told the experiment is about how your expectations affect the actual experience of a task. Perhaps you wonder why you’re being told all this, but nevertheless it makes it seem a bit more exciting now that you know some of the mechanics behind the experiment.
