"Relying on motivation for fitness success is akin to betting that your favorite Game of Thrones character will be around at the end of the season: it’s probably not going to work out in your favor."
 
Which mindset are you in today?
We like to think we’re rational, but we’re not. Your ability to make decisions is affected by a slew of factors, including your emotional state. Here’s how to use the best of those feelings to make better decisions and achieve your fitness goals.

Wow, just wow. I'm seriously considering this...
 
‘Iron Man versions’ of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge coming in June

+Samsung has teamed up with +Marvel to promote its new handsets and in return the company has created star-studded promos that add to the Avengers: Age of Ultron hype according to +Korea Times .

Samsung has even released themes based on the Avengers characters for both flagship handsets.

A few weeks back we saw artist renditions of Avengers-themed Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, and while Samsung never confirmed if it would actually turn those renditions into actual devices, the company is at least going to release “Iron Man versions” of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

The new phones will reflect design aspects of Iron Man's armored suit. The character is an American superhero featured in the recently released "Avengers: Age of Ultron" filmed partly in Seoul.

"The color of the new Iron Man phones will be red. We will decide on other details soon after discussions with Marvel Studio. It will be released either at the end of May or early June, " said +Lee Young-hee, head of marketing for the company's mobile division.

She made the remarks after watching the movie at a theater in southern Seoul.

Senior Samsung executives including +Shin Jong-kyun, handset division chief, watched the movie with about 50 reporters.

Samsung and Marvel Entertainment made a global partnership for marketing in June.

Is there any irony in posting an article about the decline of Google+ on Google+?

Google's alleged Facebook killer is being downgraded, but there were multiple lessons learned. We'll see what the search giant does with the takeaways.

It's a new world when one of the largest aircraft/weapons manufacturers for the US can buy (one of?) the largest helicopter manufacturers for (former?) communist nations around the world.
