Ketogenic dieting can be a game changer for many people, but it can be frustrating and counterproductive if done incorrectly. Have your burning keto-queries answered by Dr. Jake Wilson!

What's wrong with a classic courtship?

But it's respectful. Modern dating isn't. And it definitely isn't equal either. Or do you mean that the woman had too much power in a traditional courtship? (which was true... women could be courted by multiple suitors simultaneously, wined and dined, and have their choice of which hand to accept, including none at all) - there was this small window in history when guys were gentlemen and courteous to ladies despite romantic undertones. This is mostly dead in contemporary times, but then again, the ladies are fewer, and as a result, gentlemen scarce because coming upon one is like unknowingly crossing paths with a white rhino. You may not even realize such a thing exists.

Using sex to sell is desperate, pathetic and uninspiring. This campaign is uncomfortable and an apparent flop in presenting themselves as a creative/ad agency.

It definitely isn't professional to have a bunch of coworkers (who are suit-and-tie business professionals) lounging around naked with each other and documenting this on film. What's worse is that one is fully clothed, plus the mention of wanting the images to communicate doing anything for the client, which appears further along in the article.

I don't see humor in these shots. I see narcissism and cannot imagine an outcome where they will not lose the respect of their peers, clients, and subordinates. The naked guy may be safe from the repercussions, given cultural perspectives concerning the attractive, confident male, but the two females have doomed themselves.

I caught the following anecdote in the comment section:

"I worked in a large digital agency in Chicago that is a part of one of the big holding companies. Some genius decided to publish a calendar of various hot team members in different stages of nudity as a Christmas gift for clients. I turned up as a freelancer in about June of the calendar year and one of the guys on my team turned out to be Mr. July. He was in a tub and his personals were covered by bubbles. Now, he was an attractive guy and didn't suffer for attention from the ladies. Still... one day over a beer I asked him how he felt... he admitted he was pressured to do it and wished he hadn't. He felt, as a junior person, that he would be remembered mostly for that and not any work he would ever do there."

Rule of thumb: When strength training, aim for four sets of 8-12 reps. Use enough weight (or resistance) to give yourself a workout and fatigue the muscle fibers, but not so much that there is a compromise in form with the eighth rep versus the first. 

For optimal performance, a new set should commence within 30 seconds of finishing the previous set, but this does not mean that all four sets need to be performed in tandem. HIIT (high-intensity interval training) is a very effective circuit strategy that reduces the time required to reap the benefits of a workout -- 20-45min instead of 2hrs. We'd all love to have a little extra time in our day; amirite

Commit yourself to training hard so that you can take advantage of the time you saved, just don't use that time to scarf down ice cream or pizza.

The Imitation Game, I could speak at length about this film, but instead, let me simply state that I love it on so many levels.

haha that's the part you think I connected with?

I connected with the character being bullied when younger for his differences, and in that, having not been socialized through his developing years, which led to deficiencies in interpersonal communication, such as the inability to interpret sarcasm and suggestion or properly phrase himself when responding to others, resulting in less than favorable impressions that painted him brash and arrogant in his blunt manner; he was a greatly misunderstood individual that ignited hostility, yet oblivious to this. 

Based solely on his representation in this movie, Turing was autistic. He was also very obsessive, which I find greatly identifiable, with a strong attachment to objects, plus he had an unquenchable desire to dissect, understand and create.

From what was depicted of his childhood, particularly his solitude, intense focus, and puzzle fixation, to the innocent and eternal love formed for his savior and confidant, a love that painted the trajectory of his sexual identity and misery, we figuratively had a mirrored life.

However, I personally do not have any significant accomplishments under my belt, though I resemble the state he was in at the end of the film. Looks like I missed the bus.

Overall, the movie made me want to know him, my brother, my clansman, but it's a Hollywood drama; the reality surely wasn't as glossy or epic.

I laughed, then cried... so tragic is the male who cannot form his own identity and decides to become cardboard. Rice cakes are said to taste like cardboard. People aren't very fond of rice cakes, but they get shoved in your face when dieting, which inevitably leaves you devouring them and swallowing back your expression of disgust. Rice cakes are dull and so are trends. Don't be a cliché, especially this one.

Cheaper and cheaper rides Free, ad-supported Uber rides are inevitable, and if Uber doesn’t do them, a different competitor – perhaps Google! – will do it. It would be the next step in the industry’s trajectory towards lowering prices. Uber started in the high-end of the market, as “everyone’s private driver” which emphasized quality, but the early pricing was out of range for most. …
