Its all in the enzyme!  The more you sit the more fat enters the bloodstream.  No wonder i want to get out and away from the desk

Food / Nutrition  - 
 
Anybody else getting confused about the different directions people talk about for nutrition?

General Cloud Discussion  - 
 
I would like to see Government become "Cloud Focused"

Most large enterprises employ a hybrid of public and private cloud, with just 23% opting for an all-public strategy.  I am guessing that government departments - as a rule - would be classified as laggards in the adoption of cloud due to a traditional conservatism and a high aversion to risk.

Having said that though I see no reason why some departments cannot embrace elements of the cloud to drive down costs and increase productivity
  Those of us that expound the benefits of cloud services must calibrate our analysis and opinions with real world data about what actual operators of business IT systems are doing. Although logic and historical analogies may argue that utility IT services will inevitably displace most on-premise infrastructure, actual observation can [...]

A giant water slide down a main street in the Perth Central Business District is the first of its kind in Australia.

It's been quite some time since I used the Virgin lounge and I have to say it was exceptional. The service was without peer!

Discussion  - 
 
Electric bikes that are always connected (so the city can see where they are amongst other things) with tablets sounds like an overkill, but I like the idea that I could ride in summer without sweating.
