Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines | Sarah Hallberg | TEDxPurdueU

Translator: Alena Novotná Proofreader: Martin Polakovič I have the best job in the world. I'm a doctor. But believe me, that's not why. I'm an obesitologist. I have the honor to work with a group of people who are victims of the most widespread accepted prejudice: that they are fat. Before I meet them, these people will suffer a lot: They are ashamed, guilty, remorse and discriminated against. The approach of many people, including health professionals, is that these people are to blame for their problem. If they only managed…

Cybersecurity Scholars: Protecting US Electrical Grids Is Costly to Consumers

Protecting America’s electricity grid will cost tens of billions of dollars and most likely fall to consumers according to grid cybersecurity scholars, Defense One reports. Russians have already hacked into the U.S. power grids and the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies since 2014 have been warning against cyberthreats to the utility system. But there is no way to protect the grids, as regulations at the state and federal level make it difficult for utilities and regulators to get anything done. “Most electricity utilities are highly regulated by the government,…

$350 million. That’s the amount of money made from Avengers: Endgame ticket sales in the U.S. during opening weekend, based on Sunday estimates. It’s a ludicrous and unheard of figure, and just a piece of the record-shattering global total of $1.2 billion. No movie in the U.S. has ever posted an opening weekend higher than $300 million. No movie anywhere has made more than $1 billion worldwide in the five days since it opened. Let’s start with the U.S. total. It’s almost $100 million more than the previous record holder,…

Online Lost-and-Found Services | Interesting Thing of the Day

If you go to a coffee shop and leave your glasses, keys, or notebook on the table, chances are some honest citizen will turn the item in at the counter, and as long as you know where you left it, you can return later to claim it. Larger stores, stadiums, concert halls, theme parks and so on typically have central lost-and-found departments that serve the same purpose. But again, you must have at least a general idea of where an item was lost, and you can only hope that whoever…

The Bread Lab : Committed to Organic Food

Clif Bar is committed to funding five organic endowments (5 organic research chairs) by 2020. This will provide ongoing, lifetime organic research at these five universities—and organic research is historically and dramatically underfunded in the U.S. compared with conventional plant breeding research. This year, CLIF selected The Bread Lab and Prof. Steve Jones at Washington State University, to support the bread lab’s work, and more importantly—and the primary focus for the digital body of work—to address the economic challenges facing rural America. source
