I love the combination of good cheese, bread and wine

The “French Paradox” has long been a source of wonder for us fat-assed Americans. How the hell are the Frenchies eating a high-fat, decidedly un-Paleo diet laden with bread, Brie, and Bourdeaux, and still maintaining an obesity rate that, despite growing in recent years, is dwarfed by those of the US and UK?

Good news: cheese might actually alter your gut bacteria to create a compound that improves metabolism and combats obesity. Bring on the Brie.

The Dutch have become so much taller in such a short period that scientists chalk most of it up to their changing environment. As the Netherlands developed, it became one of the world’s largest producers and consumers of cheese and milk. An increasingly egalitarian distribution of wealth and universal access to health care may also have helped.

I am descended from Vikingr that were 6.5 feet, my father from 'Normans' 5' 6" [ 1.68m ] my mothers ancient Irish 5' [ 1.52m ] and my 5' 10" [ 1.78m ] my son will be 6' easy.

Look to Japan for a generation of 6 foot kids!


The 'big answer' is tribal. If you have 4 real seasons [ the med does not ] your genome will develop faster....

...a weird thing I've spotted.

This was the most valuable company in history (Worth 10 times as much as Apple)
 
I've seen this headline quite a bit in the news lately: "Apple is the most valuable company ever at $700 billion USD." Not true. In fact, it will take a long time before any company will be the new #1, considering that the Dutch East India Trading Company, also known as the VOC, is the true record holder. Their value? Over $7 trillion USD!

Very interesting piece on Emotional Intelligence

The mixed model has five key areas:

Self awareness: Self-awareness involves knowing your own feelings. This includes having an accurate assessment of what you’re capable of, when you need help, and what your emotional triggers are.Self-management: This involves being able to keep your emotions in check when they become disruptive. Self-management involves being able to control outbursts, calmly discussing disagreements, and avoiding activities that undermine you like extended self-pity or panic.Motivation: Everyone is motivated to action by rewards like money or status. Goleman’s model, however, refers to motivation for the sake of personal joy, curiosity, or the satisfaction of being productive.Empathy: While the three previous categories refer to a person’s internal emotions, this one deals with the emotions of others. Empathy is the skill and practice of reading the emotions of others and responding appropriately.Social skills: This category involves the application of empathy as well as negotiating the needs of others with your own. This can include finding common ground with others, managing others in a work environment, and being persuasive.
You’re taught about history, science, and math when you’re growing up. Most of us, however, aren’t taught how to identify or deal with our own emotions, or the emotions of others. These skills can be valuable, but you’ll never get them in a classroom.

I personally agree with the EU, however, Google´s response is very interesting

Competition online is thriving — despite what many of the complainants in this case allege. Indeed if you look at shopping, it’s clear that there’s a ton of competition (including from Amazon and eBay) that has not been harmed by Google’s own shopping service. Just look at the following graphs compiled using comScore data:

An internal memo highlights the "very strong case" Google plans for its defense.

‘The European Union and the Netherlands have double standards. On the one hand they impose harsh austerity measures which have devastating social and economic impacts in Greece; on the other hand they actively facilitate tax avoidance which costs the Greek state millions of euros,’ says SOMO researcher Katrin McGauran.

Greece is losing millions of euros in tax income a year because of letterbox companies in the Netherlands, according to Dutch research institute Somo.

A dutch satirical ''news'' program made a hilarious rap battle about the bailout extension

"I'm Jeroen Dijsselbloem, minister of finance and political phenomenon. Due to the frown line on my forehead and my penny-pinching look, you can immediately see that I'm an expert. I'm the right man for this position, let the Greek come my way- I will make them mad. I will get the money back, as it is my duty- and you cannot stop me, Yanis Varoufakis."
'Yanis Varoufakis':"What I will do, or will not do, is something that I will decide myself. Come on, shake my hand, I don't have HIV. What are you looking at, with your penny-pinching face? We are our own country, not an European colony.
You think you're an expert, where did you study? Wagingen? Well, congratulations. I taught economics at Cambridge. But hey, you can tell me, what are we doing wrong?"
'Jeroen Dijsselbloem': "your economy is one big mess, we supported that shit with our billions. Now you expect us to say goodbye to that loan- you are just f*cking us the Greek way. "
'Yanis Varoufakis': "you want your money back? That will be very difficult, as it is impossible to squeeze blood out of water."
'Jeroen Dijsselbloem': "OK Yanis, you wanted this yourself. Angela, KILL!"
'Angela Merkel': "M to the E-R-K-E-L, get started please, and hurry up. Jeroen, move along, I will kick some ass. I'm not being disrespectful, but I have the biggest balls. OK, Varoufakis, now it ends, you are going to pay us that money back! No more discussion, or I will throw you out of the EU- and you will be living on the street, wearing old clothes."
'Yanis Varoufakis': "... and we will be riding donkeys and eat rocks; you can not really mean those stupid threats. I'm opening the door, and you are kicking it back? Fine by me, just chill, I will just go to Poetin."
'Vladimir Poetin': "P-Poetin in tha house, the most feared person in the West. Are you bullying the Greek people again? Just continue doing that, and you will get into trouble. Just send them to me, and you can start testing Poetin.
Just come to me, Yanis, as I'm not afraid of them. If you mess with Athens, you mess with Moscow. If you are f*cking Varoufakis, Poetin will get you. Now you forgot what you wanted to say- don't you?"
'Angela Merkel': "shut your mouth, Greece is ours."
'Jeroen Dijsselbloem': "Exactly what Angela is saying, only then with a bigger frown line."
'Vladimir Poetin':"... Just break up Varoufakis, ditch that woman."
'Yanis Varoufakis': "...give me some time to think, I will get back with response."

We know that attention is a phenomenon that exists only when we give 100% of ourselves—just 95% is no longer attention. The benefits of focused attention are enormous; apart from making us more productive, it also makes us feel better. Research shows that we are happier when we are focused on something in the here and now, rather than when we let our minds wander. Besides if we focus our attention on what we are doing, we are more likely to do a good job.
 
Attention, all or nothing: Research has shown how hyper-connection and constant distractions directly impact our cerebral biology ow.ly/IZDG0 #neuroscience
