So you can eat less… or work-out… or do both! And it all works! 😀
Eating less and exercising more are equally good at helping take off the pounds, U.S. researchers said on Friday in a study that challenges many of the popular tenets of the multibillion dollar diet and fitness industry.
One of the companies I’ve been helping with is a an awesome group out in Chicago called Inventables. We met a couple of years back at TED, and ever since we’ve been talking regularly, and I was invited to be on a board for them as well.
Everytime I see them and talk to them I get excited – they have some really great stuff over there. Even their customer list is impressive!
Found this photo as I was digging through some boxes.
The Rackspace deal-makers… from left to right – Morris Miller, Dirk Elmendorf, Richard Yoo, and Pat Condon. Our lawyers were also there, working very hard in the background. (Thanks to Daryl Lansdale for shooting the photo for us. 😀 )
The six of us probably were together daily for weeks. In fact, if I remember correctly, Morris was working on our deal while his wife was giving birth! (For the record, both the baby and mother did fine. :))
The photo was stamped 12/30/98 – but I can assure you that the process of getting the final documents signed started the evening before. In fact, I think we were locked in the law office from 9:00pm the previous night. It sounds rough, but I remember it very fondly. 😀
Tips and tricks for helping you drop those holiday pounds…
Boosting ones metabolism is something many people try to achieve everyday. Having a high metabolic rate increases the amount of calories, or energy, the body burns on a daily basis. Without optimal metabolism the body will store excess calories as fat for future use. The problem for many people is they don’t ever use these excess calories and as a result struggle with weight issues.
Although Ubuntu comes with lots of applications that can be installed on your desktop, there are still some applications that are available only from third-party repositories. Finding all these repositories and installing these applications manually is very time-consuming, but fortunately some people have created a script called Automatix2 (which is the successor to Automatix) which automates the task for you. It comes with a graphical interface so that you can run it from your desktop, and this tutorial describes how you do it.
An interesting discussion about keeping things messy…
IT is a truism of American life that we’re too darn messy, or we think we are, and we feel really bad about it. Our desks and dining room tables are awash with paper; our closets are bursting with clothes and sports equipment and old files; our laundry areas boil; our basements and garages seethe. And so do our partners — or our parents, if we happen to be teenagers.
This is why sales of home-organizing products, like accordion files and labelmakers and plastic tubs, keep going up and up, from $5.9 billion last year to a projected $7.6 billion by 2009, as do the revenues of companies that make closet organizing systems, an industry that is pulling in $3 billion a year, according to Closets magazine.
This is totally awesome! I HATE having to call in to check my voicemail.
