Disappointing news from study on #obesity - after weight loss, metabolic rate and leptin levels remain low leading to rebound. Small study of contestants of Biggest Loser 2009.
Contestants lost hundreds of pounds during Season 8, but gained them back. A study of their struggles helps explain why so many people fail to keep off the weight they lose.

Well, as we already know, gaining weight is easier than losing weight.

As Puerto Rico defaults on its debt (bonds) this article from Dec 2105 makes for great reading. How the few ultra rich through political lobbying blocked legislation that would have possibly prevented this.

You can't claim the Fifth if asked to reveal self-incriminatory evidence on phone by unlocking with fingerprint! But you can't be forced to divulge password! 
Compelling a person to give up a physical fingerprint, versus a PIN code, is a tricky legal issue to navigate.

+John Dougherty yup. Though this may not need the input of the tech sector at this point as it is not asking them to break encryption.
The fingerprint detection does not work the first time the phone is used after being powered down.
I wonder if the companies will create a feature that allows you to specify a finger that actually locks the phone forcing a password instead of unlocking the phone.

colleges are encouraging students to take a gap year due to stress of high school and college!
Schools such as Harvard encourage “gap years,” but most students go straight through.
