Evolution Gym Talk

The strength of any tree is in its trunk. Your strength comes from your core so make sure you build in some core strengthening to your daily routine.

Training with good form and taking strength from your core will work over time but some specifics will make a difference quicker.

Also take time for your back-” – between the two they are the things standing you up straight every day.

I got published today.

Starting the year with a feature story about Haitian chicken and more.

I wrote that story a few months back. Finally got published. Getting used to it. Cover story. Feature story. Next story. Shitty blog.

Yesterday I finally started working on a story I did not query and I’m just writing for myself (and hopefully selling). It’s missing something. More accuracy. So I went to the historical archive to look up writings of Sor Abeja and… Well some kid was there and he said to try the next day.

That day is today. But the historical archive is next to Nelson bar. I stopped by for one beer and to talk to Erika the bartender about the story. A friend texted me that she will meet me there in 20 minutes. I waited for more than an hour and I didn’t have any food. One beer turned into…

4 Best Scientifically Proven Benefits Of Meditation (Science is Awesome)

1. MEDITATION SPEEDS UP BRAIN PROCESSING POTENTIAL

According to a research journal article published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience in February 2012, meditation can alter the geometry of the brain’s surface. There was a study done at the University of California in Los Angeles involving 50 meditators and 50 controls that addressed a possible link between meditation and cortical gyrification, the pattern and degree of cortical folding that allows the brain to process faster. This study showed a positive correlation between the amount of gyrification in parts of the brain and the number of years of meditation for people, especially long-term meditators, compared to non-meditators.

This increased gyrification may reflect an integration of cognitive processes when meditating, since meditators are known to be introspective and contemplative, using certain portions of the brain in the process of meditation. Despite articles written from this journal article, more research is still necessary to…

Make this melon a part of your daily diet and you will reap amazing benefits that range from improving cardiovascular health to nourishing your eyes and revving up your immune system. Read on to discover 8 amazing health benefits of watermelon!

Cardiovascular & Bone Health

The lycopene in watermelon is especially important for our cardiovascular health and is now being recognized as an important factor in promoting bone health. Consuming large amounts of watermelon has also been correlated with improved cardiovascular function because it improves blood flow via vasodilation (relaxation of blood pressure). Dietary lycopene (from foods like watermelon or tomatoes) reduces oxidative stress which normally reduces the activity of osteoblasts and…

Planets to align together making the biggest conga line ever!!! (Just Kidding, but seriously Science is Awesome)

The_Inner_Senshi_Under_the_Moon_-_Crystal_-_Yukie_Sako

According to AOL, on Wednesday, Jan. 20, the five bright planets will be visible from Earth, and the showing will last about a month.

Four of the five have already been visible in the early morning sky, but Mercury will join the group shortly, completing the five visible planet grouping.

EarthSky reports people living in the mid-to-northern latitudes can see Mercury best about an hour and half before dawn. In the Southern Hemisphere, it’s about two hours before sunrise. February 7 is expected to be the best day for viewing our solar system’s closest planet to the sun.

If you’re struggling to find the planets, try locating the Moon first. All five planets will align along the same path that the moon travels through in the sky.

The rare alignment will be the first time the planets have appeared together in the sky in 10 years, but The Conversation reports you won’t have to wait another decade to see it happen again. The next five-planet showing will happen in August.
