Retirement Isn't the Finish Line

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.

Microblogging is a great way to generate content on a short term scale and stay visible to your audience,

Lori Wilk's curator insight, January 27, 3:18 PM

I am a Twitter fan and have sent out more than 20,000 Tweets to date.To get more followers you want to microblog good content and mention others as well as use relevant #hashtags to track the conversations.What I have learned most recently by curating , creating, and sharing content is that there will be many people who understand that to scale this social participation requires sending out lots of Tweets and I am totally happy with the un-follows as much as the follows because those who want my help and like what I am about and have to offer will be there with me and those who don't can find the groups they want to be part of or none at all. I know what it's like in the real world to have fans from being a television producer and building an audience from scratch. My microblogging is authentic and I don't buy followers. It's impossible to recognize and promote hundreds of people without sending out lots of Tweets, especially if you want to give them Klout or Kred. I am dedicated to moving the needle of online influence and this means lots of participating online especially with microblogging such as Twitter. I welcome more followers on Twitter at Successipes and in knowing more about what you are doing that is awesome so I can share it with the world.

Does Eating Late at Night Really Lead to Weight Gain?

Does Eating Late at Night Really Lead to Weight Gain? | The 22nd Century | Scoop.it
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.

UK gym converts workout energy into building power

UK gym converts workout energy into building power | The 22nd Century | Scoop.it
As energy costs rise, a health club in Bristol has installed new equipment to harness the power of their customers.

Digital Sustainability's curator insight, December 2, 2013 7:31 AM

As energy costs rise, a health club in Bristol has installed new equipment to harness the power of their customers.

A health club in Bristol has installed new equipment that harnesses the energy produced during workouts, feeding 100w per hour back into the building’s power supply. The 42 crosstrainers, bikes and treadmills at Cadbury House Club, in Congresbury, are all self-powered; the user’s energy is converted into electricity, with any surplus channelled into the gym’s power supply.

It’s one of the first gyms in the world to install the ARTIS Technogym machines, at a cost of £600,000. Technogym claims its ARTIS line is the most energy efficient on the market, with its treadmills consuming 30% less energy than comparable models. Users can also connect their smartphones to the machines to access their individual training programs.

Jason Eaton, general manager of the health club, says spiralling energy prices were one of the main reasons for installing the new machines. "In order to avoid having to pass on these increased costs to our members, and keep their fees at a reasonable level, we decided to invest in the Technogym equipment. It's a win-win situation really."

At the moment, the surplus energy produced by the machines is unmetered, making it difficult to tell exactly how much energy is being fed back into the building, and any resulting cost savings. However, Technogym plans to install software that will provide a breakdown of input and output energy for each of the machines in the near future. "This kind of technology is new to the industry, so we're still experimenting with it at the moment," says Eaton.

However, Dr Tzern Toh, a research associate in electrical engineering at Imperial College, London, is concerned that the cost of retrofitting a gym or installing such equipment can also outweigh the benefits. “The price of electricity is many times less than the cost of the equipment and it may take months or years of electricity savings to recoup the investment.”

But Ben Ross, a senior advisor in sustainable energy at Forum for the Future and a Director of Bristol Green Doors CIC, counters: “Successful businesses plan for the long term, and with energy costs predicted to rise for the next 17 years there's a real business case to invest sooner rather than later.”

Moreover, says Ross, this is an exciting opportunity to reconnect people with energy, and create further financial incentives to improve their health: “Once you've got your smart phone plugged in and the meters wired to record the energy you generate, you could receive discounts from your membership bill for the electricity you plug back into the system!”

Nevertheless, for gyms that do not use substantial amounts of energy for other purposes, such as air-conditioning, it may soon be possible for such equipment to power the gym when it is in use.

Scientists have revived Daphnia waterflees that have been buried at the bottom of a lake for a 700 years

Scientists have revived Daphnia waterflees that have been buried at the bottom of a lake for a 700 years | The 22nd Century | Scoop.it

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.
