Slow Social Innovation: Measuring Progress, Not Time | Social Innovation on GOOD | Slow community | Scoop.it
We needed the Slow Food movement to remind us that meals can heal us through their rituals of connectedness and their nourishing substance. We need the Slow Money movement to remind us that money should serve life and not the other way around.

Can You Unplug?

Can You Unplug? | Slow community | Scoop.it

"Some entrepreneurs struggle with leaving work behind when they are now capable of checking in on the go constantly. Many small business owners have put their heart and soul into their business and it is difficult for them to delegate control to others in order to get away. Even for those who are not small business owners, unplugging from the constant feed of information and socializing we receive from the internet and the social media sites is not easy."

The slower you grow, the longer you live: Growth rate influences lifespan

The slower you grow, the longer you live: Growth rate influences lifespan | Slow community | Scoop.it

New research from the University of Glasgow suggests that lifespan is affected by the rate at which bodies grow early in life.

 

A team from the University’s Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine altered the growth rate of 240 fish by exposing them to brief cold or warm spells, which put them behind or ahead their normal growth schedule.  Once the environmental temperature was returned to normal, the fish got back on track by accelerating or slowing their growth accordingly. However, the change in growth rate also affected their rate of aging. 

 

While the normal lifespan of sticklebacks is around two years, the slow-growth fish lived for more than 30 percent longer, with an average lifespan of nearly 1000 days. In contrast, the accelerated-growth fish had a lifespan that was 15% shorter than normal.

mdashf's curator insight, January 8, 2013 11:40 AM

they should check if this is statistically in confirmation with Einstein's Relativity which says "more enegy automatically means ime runs faster and less energy means time runs slower" hence having less energy spent per unit time allows this energy to be spent over a longer period time and hence aging slower. Slowe metabolic activites should entail longer ife span and even Einstein had said so "bilogical aging and the rate at which physical processes are governed by Relativity" b/cos they are to be governed by physical laws and Einstein's law is a physical law as well.
