It's easier to dance while coding when you're standing.
Almost every week there's another new 'secret to good health' – one week it might be green smoothies and the next it's standing desks.

So ABC Health & Wellbeing have taken a look at some recent health trends to see which ones are worth holding onto, and which we should leave behind.

That whole "our country" started by an invasion from boat people.
A woman has been charged with racially abusing other passengers while travelling on a train in Sydney.

A commuter captured her racist tirade on camera on the train between Central and Strathfield stations on Wednesday afternoon.

What are you thoughts on smartphones being used to capture public acts of racism?

"The film ‘Back to the Future’ provides the OED's earliest recorded example of a colloquial sense of 'hello', used to imply (sometimes disbelievingly or sarcastically) that the person addressed is not paying attention, has not understood something, or has said something nonsensical or foolish."

Letterboxd came out with their 2013 in review. Among the recall they mention that Django Unchained from 2012 was too awesome (and late) to not be included in the 2013 round-up.

So true of nothing: "White Knights of tech are getting a bit over their heads [on gender balance]. One thing is to raise awareness of a problem that exists throughout society -- not just tech, a whole different one is to go to the extent of requesting a pull request to remove gendered references"

Do one have a problem with pronouns? Maybe she does. Maybe he does. But they... who are the they that them are asking for us? We? Those are the they that you are unknowingly picking up the shield for for the their delicate sensibilities are on the line and not just straight-forward documentation.

Some times life in day cannot contain all the excitement that tilting 9° affords us. So there's a NASA study asking for subjects to experience some of that wildness in tilt-sleeping.

"After the first 13 or 21 day period, you will spend 70 days lying in bed, with your body slightly tilted downward (head down, feet up)."

It's a 60° tilt here. That's at least six times the fun in life, in bed.
