Science Reveals What Sitting All Day at Work Actually Does to Your Body


According to the +TIME , it causes cancer.

But... Contrary to the shocking title, sitting for long periods does not explicitly cause cancer: It led to an increased risk  of two specific types of the disease. These two types also happen to be linked to being overweight and obese, behaviors that are associated with sedentary behavior.

NEUROBIOLOGY ART BY GREG DUNN
Greg Dunn is working on a doctorate in neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania - but he uses the materials that he encounters in his work to create some of the world's most unusual works of art. His work combines the geometry of neuronal arbors with the spare aesthetics of east Asian watercolor art.
Here is some of the most amazing medical art.

Motion-induced blindness

"In this demonstration the observer focuses at the flickering green dot in the middle. After about 10 seconds, the observer sees one, two or all three of the static yellow dots arranged at the corners of an imaginary equilateral triangle disappear and then reappear. These disappearances and reappearances continue at random for as long as the observer cares to look."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_induced_blindness

Maybe this illusion can be used to demonstrate that you can have an experience without being conscious that it is occurring.

"A popular example illustrating this point is the case of the distracted driver (Armstrong 1968). Lost in thought about his marital problems as he drives down the freeway, he does not pay attention to the visual experiences he is undergoing. He does not notice those experiences. He does not think to himself that he is having so-and-so experiences. But he is having them, all right. After all, he is still seeing other cars and the road ahead. The beliefs he forms on the basis of his visual perceptions about the direction of the road and the locations of the other cars guide his driving. If he weren’t seeing the road and the cars, he would end up in the ditch or worse."

This was my usual hairball adventure. I went to Kauai and TSA insisted on destroying all of my stripped and clear bagged medium format film. I won't fly anymore after the threats they leveled at me for having a print out of their rules and asking them to follow them...
I got there and it poured rain. Torrents. Just.freeking.torrents!!!
I went up Waimea canyon and sat in my car at a pull out and saw that the rain would subside for a few seconds every so often so I took some webbing and tied off to the guardrail and sat on the edge of this slick red clay thousand foot cliff with my camera bagged up on the tripod and waited. During this wait I sucked a lot of rain which was going straight up because of the anabatic air current coming up the cliff face.
After about 15 minutes of this I could see a break coming so I made ready and when it got to me jerked the bag off and made this 200mm telephoto vertorama sequence of 12 exposures. I actually got 2 passes before the torrent started again and came out of it with one good pass. The second pass had gotten too misty as the torrent was coming across the canyon at me.
I didn't mind the rain, it was like someone dumped a bucket of warm water on me, the raining up was odd but I got over it :)
