Given the results of two new studies, the maximal bang for your buck health benefit of exercise seems to be to spend a little over an hour a day on average exercising, with a third or more of that exercise being strenuous sweaty exercise.

In the first study, those who exercised just a little lowered their risk of premature death by 20% of those who didn't exercise. Those who met the guidelines precisely, completing 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise, lowered their risk 30%; but those who tripled the recommended level, working out moderately, mostly by walking, for 450 minutes per week, or a little more than an hour per day, lowered their risk by 40%. At that point, the benefits plateaued: those engaging in 10 times or more the recommended exercise dose gained about the same reduction in mortality risk as people who simply met the guidelines and didn't gain more health bang for all the additional hours spent sweating.

And in a second study, those spending up to 30% of their weekly exercise time in vigorous activities were 9% less likely to die prematurely than people who exercised for the same amount of time but always moderately; while those who spent more than 30% of their exercise time in strenuous activities gained an extra 13% reduction in early mortality, compared with people who never broke much of a sweat.
Two new studies suggest that the ideal dose of exercise for a long life is a bit more than many of us currently believe we should get, but less than many of us might expect.

I read an opposing study that states laying in bed or on a couch while watching tv and eating whatever you want is the way to reach maximum results.

Gotta admit, Mecha Godzilla probably has a lot to say, although most of us probably couldn't make much sense out of his roar.

Bill details the engineering choices underlying the design of a beverage can. He explains why it is cylindrical, outlines the manufacturing steps needed to created the can, notes why the can narrows near it lid, shows close ups of the double-seam that hold the lid on, and details the complex operation of the tab that opens the can.

All the geeks on Google plus, and so little chatter about upcoming MegaCon. So disappointing.

Why are some people able to master a new skill quickly while others require extra time or practice? That was the question posed by UC Santa Barbara's Scott Grafton and colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins University.

Story
Tagline
Occasionally depressed. Rarely irrational.
Introduction
I don't participate. I watch, I observe, I listen, I think. 

I like to talk about thoughts and ideas and meanings. I try to make sense of things.

I find beauty in the combination of power and elegance. A flame, a tiger, a lightning bolt, a blade. I love the sound of rain.

Passion, dedication, and commitment. Whether love, work, hobby, or some other important part of life, greatness becomes more likely with those three ingredients. 

I believe that the deliberate spreading of misinformation by those whose role is to deliver accurate information should be a criminal offense.

I prefer games with clear rules.
