Half the people who have heart attacks don't have symptoms before they have a heart attack.

Understand that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 cause of death and disability in our society, so it's something you really can't afford to ignore. If you're looking for a magic bullet to protect yourself from heart disease, the closest thing we have to that is exercise. It is healthy for us in so many ways.

Your life's work

It isn't about the perfect job; it is about your life's work. Jobs are temporary things, often enticing on paper until you realize that as soon as you get comfortable in your position, it will change, your boss will change, your team will change or your organization will change. Your life's work on the other hand, are activities that you have natural talent for, which energize you and stimulate you and do not change no matter what "job" you happen to be in. Each one of us has specific gifts, talents and experience that make us uniquely qualified to do our life's work. Each choice you make about a job should be in the context of supporting and furthering your life's work.

Cell phone use and cancer risk - debate continues

What do brain surgeons know about cellphone safety that the rest of us don't? Last week, three prominent neurosurgeons told the CNN interviewer Larry King that they did not hold cellphones next to their ears.

"What we're seeing is suggestions in epidemiological studies that have looked at people using phones for 10 or more years," says Louis Slesin, editor of Microwave News, an industry publication that tracks the research. "There are some very disconcerting findings that suggest a problem, although it’s much too early to reach a conclusive view."

Some doctors say the real concern is not older cellphone users, who began using phones as adults, but children who are beginning to use phones today and face a lifetime of exposure.

The fear is that even if the individual risk of using a cellphone is low, with three billion users worldwide, even a minuscule risk would translate into a major public health concern.

"We cannot say with any certainty that cellphones are either safe or not safe," Dr. Black said on CNN. "My concern is that with the widespread use of cellphones, the worst scenario would be that we get the definitive study 10 years from now, and we find out there is a correlation."

A pair of Swiss pioneers are gearing up for a 23,000-mile flight around the world fueled only by solar energy.
...Bertrand Piccard, a record-breaking Swiss hot-air balloonist who is, incidentally, a qualified psychiatrist, thinks the crazy thing would be not to try. "What is dangerous," he says, "is to think we can continue consuming petrol at the rate of one million tons per hour without destroying the planet."


Could you use that in a sentence? This is a hilarious video at a spelling bee.

Ask for what you want

The more often you ask for what you want, the more likely you are to get it. To ask for help, you have to define what you want. To get the best results, ask about the process, not the people.
