The Myth of the Messy Desk Exposed!

As kids some of us were told over and over again to “clean up your room”!   In fact the material mess became the battlefield for many a family fight.  Some of us held to our disorganized ways through college (how did we survive) and into the workplace.  There, the manager-as-mom chanted the old adage about a messy desk being a sign of a messy mind .  Well, score one for our side because  

new research suggests a disorganized environment may actually foster a clearer head.  Booyah!  Read on…

Study Reveal Men/Women Really Are Different

 Ladies sit down, gentlemen brace yourselves…there’s no other way to say this than to come right out with it…you – are- different.  Yup. Not the same at all and a new study proves it! (what did we spend on that!)  Check the  Public Library of Science website and  see for yourself.

The study is based on information gather from 10,000 men and women who took a questionnaire that measured 15 variations of personality traits.  Now the study was based on an American perspective so that could be an influencing factor in the results…because hey, we aren’t the French…but the picture drawn from the responses reveal men and women feel and behave in very specific man and woman ways.  Surprise surprise!  Who knew?!

Can The Right Acid Trip Improve Memory

I am a child of the ‘60’s and I’m on acid.  Hold on..don’t get ahead of me…it’s NOT what you think!  Now where was I?   I forget…ah, but the old memory is coming back…thanks to folic acid! 

Raised on a farm in the North Dakota, there wasn’t a lot of recreational “acid” in my neighborhood but who knew there were tens of thousands of acres of folic acid growing right outside my door.

Researchers are discovering Vitamin B12 and folic acid supplements could be good for your memory. “A recent study found that older adults who took them for two years had greater improvements on memory tests than those who didn’t.”

Where does folic acid come from…I forget…kidding! Foods rich in folic acid are mainly leafy vegetables such as spinach, turnip greens, lettuces, sunflower seeds, dried beans and peas, fortified cereals, collards and broccoli. Among the other foods that contain folic acid are peanuts and wheat germ.

What the study shows is that it may take some time for the improvements to kick in, but kick in they will.

‘Obesity May Run in the Family,’ Say Researchers — Health Check

Is obesity contagious? A study back in 2007 seemed to indicate that, saying we get it from our friends. To back that up, researchers highlighted data showing members of social groups were likely to have similar rates of obesity. New research, however, seems to be changing all this by finding that social interactions may have little impact on body weight.
