5 Daily Habits to Lengthen Life

5 Daily Habits to Lengthen Life | Daily Distractions | Scoop.it

Winning the war against aging is not achieved by drinking a daily shot glass filled with the mystical juice of a magical berry from Southeast Asia.

 

In fact, aging is best kept at bay by fighting off chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes, which accelerate the aging process and are the main causes of premature death.

 

Although accelerated aging -- and aging in general -- is a complex process, you can fight it with five simple daily habits.

Infographic: What Does Your Handwriting Say About You?

Infographic: What Does Your Handwriting Say About You? | Daily Distractions | Scoop.it

Graphology--the study of handwriting--has long been considered a pseudoscience, in the same family as phrenology and astrology. But a new study claims that the way you write can indicate more than 5,000 personality traits.


This handwriting analysis adds research to what typeface and graphic designers know intuitively--how the aesthetics of letterforms express information. For example, letters with no slant indicate "logic and practicality," as seen in the straight-up-and-down logos of no-nonsense firms like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. The way graffiti writers play with lettering also reflects the study’s results--rounded letters indicate creativity and artistic talent, and spray-painted tags are rarely angular.

London's future skyline captured in new visualiations

London's future skyline captured in new visualiations | Daily Distractions | Scoop.it

This series of images by architectural rendering studio Hayes Davidson envisages how London's skyline might look in 20 years time.

Over 200 towers with a height of 20 storeys or greater are planned in the UK capital over the next two decades and Hayes Davidson has visualised how these new buildings will appear alongside existing skyscrapers such as Renzo Piano's The Shard and Norman Foster's The Gherkin.


The images were created for an exhibition opening later this year at New London Architecture (NLA) entitled London's Growing... Up! which will chart the growth of tall building construction in London since the 1960s and look at the impact skyscrapers will have on the city in the near future.

"As London's population gets bigger and bigger, and new development for London takes place within the constraints of the green belt, we have to increase the density of the city," said Peter Murray, who is chairman of NLA and the exhibition curator.
