Yet the foods many students reach for when they’re deep in a study session are often not only unhealthy, but not exactly ideal choices for energy, concentration and boosting your brainpower.

Pound-Melting Pilates Workout Three things are on nearly every woman's wish list: smaller pores, a fat bank account, and a Pilates body. Problem is, you don't get that enviable long, lean physique simply by showing up to class a couple of times a week. "The average Pilates session will tone muscles and improve posture, but it's probably not going to result in significant weight loss or dramatic body changes all on its own, especially if you're not watching your diet," says Kit Rich, a Pilates instructor and personal trainer in Los Angeles. An adrenaline junkie herself, Rich cooked up a way to combine the body-sculpting benefits of Pilates with fat-melting cardio training. "It's about adding cardio intervals that pump up your heart rate, then spending the 'recovery' time doing Pilates, which means you're getting the most out of every minute," she explains. The Workout Pick a form of cardio you can do for two minutes at an all-out pace.

How to Build a Folding Table: Simple DIY Woodworking Project Finding just a bit more table space in a hallway or living room, only when you need it, isn't easy. A classic solution is the drop-leaf table, a 16th-century design still useful today because it's so efficient. Lift the leaf when you want more surface area. Drop it when you want a slimmer, neater look. There are several variations on these tables--and we chose the simplest one, with a single leaf and a fifth leg that swings out to support it. It's perfect for a foyer and can be built with basic tools and a small table saw in a home workshop. Probably the trickiest step is cutting the leg tapers.

Bottle sling The bottle sling (or jug sling) is a knot which can be used to create a handle for a glass or ceramic container with a slippery narrow neck, as long as the neck widens slightly near the top.[1] While classed with binding knots, such as the reef knot and miller's knot, the bottle sling is able to perform a function for which most other binding knots are unsuited. The bottle sling's specific form allows it to grip a cylinder, assuming it has even a slight flare or collar, and lift it along its axis when the knot is loaded by all four strands.[1] With appropriate size cord, most wine bottles can be reliably suspended with this knot. History[edit] The bottle sling was described in detail by the Greek physician Heraklas in his first century monograph on surgical knots and slings. Usage[edit] As the name suggests, the primary use for this knot is to suspend bottles, jugs, and other items with similar shapes.
