A Present for you

"The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depend on the future. We let go the present, which we have in our power, and look forward to that which depends on chance, and so relinquish a certainty for an uncertainty."--Seneca

Oh, and by the way...

Ok, 10 things you absolutely don't need to know

1. In North Korea the number of Internet users is only 605.
2. Andre the Giant once drank 127 beers in a hotel bar, passed out in the lobby, and because he was so large, no one could move him till he woke up.
3. The location of the worlds largest tree, "Hyperion", is kept secret from all but a few select scientists.
4. In 2010, when Tokyo officials went to congratulate the oldest man in the City on his 111th birthday, they found instead a 30 year old skeleton. The family, as it turned out, was still drawing the pension he was still receiving.
5. The average Teacher salary in Switzerland in 2010 was $110,000 per year.
6. 60%(50 of 83) of the restaurants that appeared      on Kitchen Nightmares have been sold or shut down.
7. In Terminator 2, Schwarzenegger only spoke 700
                                                                                    words, and he was paid $15 million. That means that
                                                                                    "Hasta la vista Baby" cost $85,716.
                                                                                   8. The latin word for "old lady" is "anus."
                                                                                   9. The world produces enough food to feed                                                                                                  everyone. World agriculture produces 17% more                                                                                          calories today than it did 30 years ago, despite a                                                                                          70% population increase. This is enough to provide
                                                                                   everyone in the world with at least 2,720 kilocalories
                                                                                   per person per day.
                                                                                   10. Adwaita, the worlds oldest tortoise that died                                                                                          only 6 years ago, was born 26 years before the                                                                                            signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Around the World...Enjoy the trip!

Eventually...


Fighting Obesity Worthwhile? You Decide...


ATHENS, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – A recent study conducted by scientists in London found that the obese persons of the world are playing an increasingly large role in the rate at which the planet’s finite resources are used.
“Increasing population fatness could have the same implications for world food energy demands as an extra half a billion people living on the earth,” the study concluded.
The findings were published in the BMC Public Health journal earlier this year.
Research was conducted based on the theory that the body mass of a population should be factored into the amount of energy it burns, in addition to the number of people residing in a certain region.
Though obesity touches all corners of the Earth, it was found that Americans were especially weighing down the planet.
“If all countries had the [body mass index] distribution of the USA, the increase in human biomass of 58 million [metric tons] would be equivalent in mass to an extra 935 million people of average body mass, and have energy requirements equivalent to that of 473 million adults,” the research dictated.
Data collected on the BMI and height distribution of the average adult in each country was used to calculate the total biomass resulting from a population’s size and average body mass. The percentage of those in a given country who are overweight and obese was also a factor.
“Although the concept of biomass is rarely applied to the human species, the ecological implications of increasing body mass are significant and ought to be taken into account when evaluating future trends and planning for future resource challenges,” the study found. ”Tackling population fatness may be critical to world food security and ecological sustainability.”

Leggo that Ego

When we get embarrassed, our ego shrinks, but our soul blossoms. Let’s say we make a big mistake. If everyone notices, and our failure will be exposed, we may react and try to cover it up. Or we could recognize this as an opportunity to wipe out our ego.
Try to love humiliation. In the end, your soul will shine and your ego will hide, and people will see you for who you really are.
