Hilary Brueck, provided by Published 11:08 am PDT, Thursday, October 25, 2018 Flickr The keto diet is a popular weight-loss strategy, but you don't have to stick to it forever to see benefits. Even nutrition researchers who may not endorse the keto diet say there's a right and wrong way to go about it. If you try out the diet, make sure to get enough fat, and don't cycle in and out of the plan. Consuming too much protein can be bad for your kidneys, so keto-ers should also incorporate fresh foods like veggies and drink plenty of water. If you're thinking of going keto, you can forget bread, beans, bananas, and nearly every other sweet treat. The ketogenic diet is an exacting, tough-to-follow formula for rapid weight loss. The regimen essentially tricks your body into thinking it's starving by depriving it of nearly all carbohydrates. The goal is to trigger a metabolic state called ketosis, in which the body burns fat for energy instead of storing it up in reserve. … [Read more...] about A keto diet expert, cancer researcher, and Harvard cardiologist all agree on these 2 simple rules for the high-fat plan

During that time, independent physicians reduced profitability, both in percentage and actual return. How can that be? Administrative costs, regulation and place of service are major contributing factors, as is waste, fraud and abuse. A recent Harvard study shows how to cut one trillion dollars -- a third of the total cost of healthcare -- with no … [Read more...] about You Can Cut Employee Health Insurance Costs the Same Way Big Companies Do
It’s indisputable: A broadband internet connection is vital to full participation in our society and economy. Increasingly, government services and job opportunities can only be accessed online. Indeed, homework assigned to seven out of 10 K-12 students in the US requires internet access, according to a recent study. The internet provides access to necessary information and a way to stay connected to friends and family, be they around the corner or around the world. WIRED OPINION ABOUT Gigi Sohn(@gigibsohn) is a Mozilla fellow and former counselor to FCC chair Tom Wheeler. Amina Fazlullah (@amina_fazlullah) is a Mozilla fellow and policy advisor to the National Digital Inclusion Alliance. But accessing this critical network is unattainable for the poorest Americans. Data from Pew Research shows that a little over half of American adults with household incomes under $30,000 have a home broadband connection, and one in three have a smartphone.

By Richard StoneFeb. 15, 2018 , 5:00 PM U.S. diplomats who fell ill in Cuba are victims of a new neurological syndrome, according to brain researchers at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). But the team was unable to shed light on the malady’s mysterious cause, which the U.S. Department of State has characterized as a “health attack.” From late 2016 through August 2017, as many as 24 U.S. citizens affiliated with the U.S. Embassy in Havana reported symptoms ranging from vertigo and sleeplessness to cognitive impairment. Many described hearing loud or disconcerting sounds before the onset of symptoms, or pressure sensations in their ears akin to the baffling that occurs in a moving car with the windows cracked open. “They felt something weird going on,” and when they moved away from the perceived exposure, some of “the symptoms abated,” says Douglas Smith, director of UPenn’s Center for Brain Injury and Repair. The State Department … [Read more...] about U.S. diplomats in Cuba have unusual brain syndrome, but there’s no proof they were attacked, study says
Emoji have become a language of their own, but until recently, the language made it hard to talk about climate change: There are no emoji about pollution, wildfires, or rising sea levels. So artists Marina Zurkow and Viniyata Pany launched a set of mobile stickers specifically about climate change, called Climoji. The icons depict melting sea ice, starving polar bears, dead trees, and flooded people. They’re intended to raise awareness about some of the most important issues of our time: global warming and environmental destruction. Need an emoji to express your frustration with plastic pollution? Thanks to Zurkow and Pany, now you have a whale with a plastic bottle in its stomach, or a plastic bottle with a fish skeleton inside. Climate change is already affecting the world, from rising temperatures to rising sea levels. Hurricanes and wildfires made 2017 the most expensive year on record for natural disasters — and scientists say that these catastrophic events will … [Read more...] about What kind of emoji do you need to talk about climate change?
