This video is older than dirt, but it does a great job of demonstrating why research can’t be trusted to evaluate ideas as powerful as the one behind Apple’s iconic “1984” spot.

  • Recovery - This vitamin water is ideal for recovery post-workout or after a large bout of physical activity.  Blackberries and Cherries aid in replenishing oxygen in the blood while pomegranate and glutamine help to restore and repair muscle tissue damage
  • C*Power - This vitamin water gives you a boost of anti-viral and anti-inflammatory vitamin C.  With natural citrus fruits and camu camu powder, c*power is ideal for boosting your immunity after an illness or just keeping your body empowered.  This is an excellent combination for weight loss

  • Digest It - Excellent for aiding in digestion and stimulating the colon and digestive tract.  With the combination of pineapple’s digestive enzymes, soothing, cooling mint and warming ginger, stimulating lemongrass, immunizing lychee and probiotics this water will aid in internal balance
  • Detox - Purify your blood and body with this awesome vitamin water!  Detox is ideal for the morning after a night out or when you are cleansing.  Created with hydrating coconut water, and fresh cucumber, nutrient rich coconut meat, detoxifying milk thistle and anti-oxidant loaded raspberries and blueberries, this combination will cleanse your body from the inside out

Why Carving Out 5 Hours Every Day For Difficult Work Can Lead To Greatness

It’s hard to dance like nobody’s watching, as the old saying suggests, when you’re filming yourself. By doing so, though, designer Karen X. Cheng documented her attempt to learn how to dance over the course of 100 days—and went viral in the process. Now she wants to help others apply the same incremental progress strategy to learning how to do anything.
  1. Why is this a project to begin with?
  2. What purpose does the work serve, what is the end-goal?
  3. Who needs to be involved, and who is the project ultimately for?
  4. When does it need to be completed and when are the project milestones (if there aren’t any, make some)?
  5. Where will the work appear and where will it be worked on?
  6. How will these objectives be accomplished?
– Before you start any project, answer these six questions (via creativesomething)

My video on exoplanets this week was inspired heavily by Lee Billings’ book Five Billion Years of Solitude:

This book, which might be my favorite science read of the year, chronicles the past, present, and future of our search for other worlds and other intelligent life through personal accounts of the scientists who have devoted their lives to that study. It’s also a great reference to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, so extra points for that.

In the book, Lee touches on the tumultuous history of Earth’s place in the universe, decades of planetary science in our own solar system and beyond, our persistent search for extraterrestrial intelligence, and what the expiration date might be for life on a changing Earth.

It’s far more than I could ever cover in one YouTube video, so check out Lee’s recent presentation at Google HQ (above) if you’d like to dig deeper.

Reminder! Part 2 of my exoplanets series comes out next Monday, and it will deal with all those mind-bending questions of extraterrestrial life and what our planet’s future holds. Keep your eyes to the skies (and to YouTube)!

If you’re trying to cram three months of training into one week, the most important thing is separating techniques from attributes: If you’re trying to learn parkour, you need to figure out where you can cheat by refining technique and jumping to intermediate or advanced stuff. You also have to recognize that there are challenges and obstacles like tendons snapping because you don’t have the time to develop the increased power output or strength. The attributes take time to develop and they’re genetically limited, whereas the technique is something you can deconstruct and really learn quickly if you approach it with the proper framework and hacker mentality. Separating those two things out is very important.
