People who exercise more have better brain health, researchers say. Puzzles and other brain benders do nearly nothing to protect an aging brain.

The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company.
The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.
You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows.
No balance sheet provided with the release.
The public then buys your bull.

The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

"Job growth, as it turns out, is largely driven by small businesses. Typically this comes from new business creation that builds a small business economy that drives 64% of all jobs. But in order for small businesses to be created and hire during economic downturns, they need access to capital, which is often provided by big banks. This, of course, was a primary driver of the $700 billion in economic stimulus that went to banks but, as we have learned, it did not go to small businesses. And this is the primary reason why we are still in a recession."
Business bloggers at Harvard Business Review discuss a variety of business topics including managing people, innovation, leadership, and more.
