There is one country where most Europeans would rather live—and one they’d all rather avoid

How do Europe’s citizens think of life elsewhere on the continent?

The results? Well, poor Greece.

A survey (pdf) by a research group based at the University of Geneva asked citizens from nine European nations to rate living conditions in their home country and those in neighboring countries on a scale of one to 10.

Interestingly, the one country that comes out top the most is not even a member of the European Union. Switzerland has long built up a reputation as a tax haven and one of the world’s wealthiest nations (to say nothing of its chocolate, cheese, and mountains). It also has restrictive refugee policies, which came under criticism from the UN last year.

Don't yell at your dog kids...

People who yell at their dogs are very likely to end up with dogs that don’t listen

If you can’t get your dog to behave, it may be your tone of voice that’s to blame.

Dogs follow our directions more quickly when we seem happy or neutral, Ross Flom, a psychologist from Brigham Young University, and one of his graduate students, concluded from a recent set of experiments. Their work was published (paywall) in Animal Cognition last year.

That this issue needs to be addressed formally and openly through media, at all, also needs even moreso to be studied and addressed formally and more openly through all media.

“Work at things that are central to your life”: The argument for never retiring

"Retirement, Glaser says, is an obsolete concept invented to stimulate the economy."

But not all work is physical labor, and many seniors can’t stand the thought of spending their remaining healthy years—and hard-earned wisdom—idling in leisure parks, cruises and retirement communities.

Beastie Boy John Berry died of frontal lobe dementia – but what is it?

"Sometimes people repeat an action over and over in exactly the same way, perhaps arranging objects very precisely or following a set daily routine according to a strict timetable. As the frontal lobe overseer loosens control, people often become uninhibited. They may become blunt and tactless. They may act on appetites and urges in ways that are quite out of character: touching people, swearing profusely when irritated and eating excessive amounts of sweet foods."

"A particular difficulty for friends and family is that people with this dementia lose their ability to empathise. They may no longer offer comfort if someone is in tears and may seem very self-centred."

"As not many people are familiar with the condition, it is often mistaken for other more common conditions. People may put the changes down to mid-life crisis, stress at work, depression or the menopause. It is possible that the condition is often misdiagnosed."

Awww the things we do for love - silly cat :)

A Cougar's Thousand-Mile Quest to Find a Mate

"It was one of the most spectacular journeys by an animal ever recorded.”

Young male cougars come from a society in which they are portioned out by territories. Big males control big territories encompassing several females. So the young males have a choice: try to fight the reigning males, in which case they’re likely to get killed; or head out and look for another place that has females. This guy was looking for love. He went all that way searching, but not finding it. And that’s the tragedy of this epic.

After 20,000 years, the world's oldest people face a crisis of culture

An indigenous people in Southern Africa, they are our oldest human ancestors, DNA testing proving the San are direct descendants of the first Homo sapiens. But today their culture, traditions and heritage are at risk of being lost forever.

"Culture on its own, it is what makes you who you are... It's upon us, the youth, to learn from these old people to promote our culture and to preserve it while they are still alive."

#culture 
Caught between modernity and 20,000 years as hunter-gatherers, the San people sit at a crossroads.

SOOO...I'm curious. How many of you guys eat breakfast in the morning? How many of you guys eat breakfast for dinner? :)

Sorry, There’s Nothing Magical About Breakfast

"The bottom line is that the evidence for the importance of breakfast is something of a mess. If you’re hungry, eat it. But don’t feel bad if you’d rather skip it, and don’t listen to those who lecture you. Breakfast has no mystical powers."

#breakfast #goodmorning #lunch #dinner
Don’t feel bad if you’d rather skip it. Studies have not proved its importance.

Breakfast aka break-fast is just the first meal of the day. For me that could be 8 or more hours after I wake up, and what it involves depends upon what's available and who else needs to be fed.

Haha!

North Korea rejects Donald Trump’s pledge to hold talks with Kim Jong-un as “nonsense”

Donald Trump’s pledge to engage with North Korea is not being met with open arms in Pyongyang.

“It’s for utilization of the presidential election, that’s all. A kind of a propaganda or advertisement,” he added. “This is useless, just a gesture for the presidential election.”
Trump's proposed talks are "for utilization of the presidential election, that's all," an ambassador said.

The Secret to Getting Kids to Eat Apples

"Sliced apples just make a lot more sense for kids."

A pilot study conducted at eight schools found that fruit consumption jumped by more than 60 percent when apples were served sliced.
Three years ago, a group of researchers at Cornell University's Food and Brand Lab had a hunch. And they were right.

Turmeric lattes anyone?

An ancient Indian remedy for sore throats has become the new hipster drink in the West

The West is discovering the goodness of turmeric one latte at a time.

Chefs, in particular, have developed a newfound affection for the Indian spice and are mixing turmeric juice with juice from almonds and cashews. In fact, The Guardian, suggests that “‘Golden milk’ or turmeric latte—a combination of nut milk and juiced turmeric root—is 2016’s drink of choice.”
