Most of us think of retirement as the finish line, but this isn't the best way to plan for retirement. Retirement is just one step on the staircase of life, and we have a lot of years to live before and after that step. I'm sure many people with golden handcuffs are just holding on to their jobs for the retirement benefits and counting down until the day they can retire. Retirement can last a long time.

A nutritionist shares how to eat late and still lose weight
The question: So many people say not to eat after 7 p.m. But can late dinners and midnight snacks really thwart my weight loss goals?
The expert: Nutritionist Jaime Mass, M.S., R.D., L.D./N.
The answer: "A calorie is a calorie," says Mass. "If your total calorie intake for the day is greater than what you are burning, this can lead to weight gain regardless of what time it is." But if you eat healthy, regular meals throughout the day and typically have dinner around 8 p.m., there's no reason to stress.

Exploration of the planet Mars - facts, rover, mission, videos, pictures and information
Opportunity rover was built for a three-month mission on Mars, but continues to return valuable scientific data 10 years later. NASA will reflect on the rover's work in a news conference at 11 a.m. PST (2 p.m. EST) Thursday, Jan. 23.
The event will originate from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., and be carried live on NASA Television and streamed online.
Participants will be:
Michael Meyer, lead scientist, Mars Exploration Program, NASA Headquarters, WashingtonRay Arvidson, Mars Exploration Rovers deputy principal investigator, Washington University, St. Louis, Mo.John Callas, Mars Exploration Rovers project manager, JPLSteve Squyres, Mars Exploration Rovers principal investigator, Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y.
Opportunity, one of NASA's twin Mars Exploration Rovers, reached the Red Planet Jan. 24, 2004 (PST). It landed three weeks after its twin, named Spirit. Both rovers made important discoveries about wet environments that could have supported microbial life on ancient Mars. Spirit stopped communicating with Earth in 2010. Opportunity is continuing to provide scientific results, and currently is investigating the rim of a crater 14 miles (22 kilometers) wide.
The briefing will be Webcast live at: http://ustream.tv/NASAJPL . For NASA TV streaming video, downlink and scheduling information, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/nasatv .

Scientists hve resurrected animals that are known scientifically as Daphnia and informally as water fleas. About as big as a grain of rice, these shrimp-like organisms live by the billions in lakes. Each fall, some species produce hard-shelled eggs which fall to the bottom of lakes, and the next spring many produce new water fleas. But some of these eggs get buried in sediment, unhatched.
In the mid-1990s, Lawrence J. Weider, an evolutionary ecologist then working in Germany, figured out how coax the eggs to hatch. His first success came with eggs buried for decades in a German lake. Some of the revived animals were in such good shape they could reproduce in his lab.
In 2009 Dr. Weider, now at the University of Oklahoma, and his colleagues set out to resurrect eggs from some lakes in Minnesota. The chemistry of those lakes has been carefully documented for decades, making it possible to see how changes in pollution levels affected the water fleas.
To gather the animals, Dr. Weider and his colleagues took a boat out on the lakes. “It’s a smaller version of a party barge, with a hole cut out of the deck,” he said. Through the hole, the scientists lowered a tube and pushed it about three feet into the sediment — deep enough, Dr. Weider thought, to gather water flea eggs a few decades old.
The scientists then went back to Oklahoma, sifted the cases from the mud, and started resurrecting the animals. They also extracted Daphnia DNA, giving them more data to analyze. Only then did Dr. Weider get an estimate for the age of the sediment in South Center Lake from another lab. “I said, ‘Are you kidding me?'” said Dr. Weider. The lab concluded that the bottom of the lake’s sediment core was about 1,600 years old.
The oldest eggs that Dr. Weider and his colleagues had successfully hatched were about 700 years old. To estimate the age of the sediment, the lab measured levels of a radioactive isotope called lead-210. The researchers are now confirming the dates by measuring another isotope, carbon-14. While the dating remains provisional for now, Dr. Post said he was confident that the oldest of the water fleas lived before Europeans colonized the United States.
