US MILITARY WARNS OF “AUGMENTED HUMAN BEINGS”
The U.S. military has ambitious plans to turn its soldiers into high-tech cyborg warriors by making them stronger, enhancing their senses, and wiring their brains to computers.
Pentagon brass thinks these cyborgs will make their way to the battlefield by 2050, Army Times reports. The Department of Defense just declassified a report from October that details its plans for “human/machine fusion,” revealing its bizarre plan to bring to life military tech that’s always been safely quarantined within the realm of science fiction.
This Is The Struggle Of A Teen With Mental Health Challenges
It’s hard AF being a parent. And the guilt. THE GUILT. Everything your child does feels like a direct reflection of your parenting. And those around you — including strangers — are sure to remind you of that. So when my now 15-year-old son was diagnosed with OCD at the age of 12, the heaviness of a hundred elephants felt like they were making a resting nest on my heart.
Fuck. I gave my son my OCD.
Suffering in solitude: A quarter of Americans say they have no one to confide in about their problems - and most hide their real feelings from the people closest to them
Nearly a quarter (24 percent) of Americans feel like they have no one to confide in – and 70 percent say they hold back how they really feel when sharing with a friend, partner or co-worker, according to a new survey.
Most (90 percent) of Americans say they downplay their emotions to avoid worrying or stressing out a loved one, according to the survey by OnePoll on behalf of BetterHelp, a web-based counseling service.
Researchers discovered that young people (age 18-30) are most likely to isolate themselves because they are uncomfortable talking about money, job stress, parents or friends with their significant other.
'These diets are bulls***': Viewers criticise How to Lose Weight Well for promoting 'fad' slimming plans - including a liquid cleanse and one that only allows you a SINGLE meal a day
Channel 4's How to Lose weight Well has sparked anger from viewers for promoting 'fad diets'.
In the third episode, which aired on Monday night, Dr Xand van Tulleken and Dr Helen Lawal road tested the latest hyped-up diets including a 'visualisation' diet and a one-meal-a-day plan, on six volunteers.
Each slimmer tried a different plan, ranging from the 12 day 'crashers' and six-week 'shapeshifters', to the four-month 'life-changers'.
And while many of the participants saw dramatic results, viewers took to social media to slam the 'fad' diets as dangerous and not sustainable long-term.
Love Me Tender
Whether you’re grilling or stir-frying, ending up with tender, mouthwatering meat is always the goal. Achieving said texture isn’t always so easy. Here’s a trick for tenderizing meat that you may never have heard before:

COULD FASTING CURE DIABETES? EVIDENCE ON NOT EATING FOR LONG STRETCHES IS COMPELLING—AND CONTROVERSIAL
Weight gain may be driven not only by what we eat but also by our tendency to eat all day long. In the past few years, intermittent fasting has emerged as a popular trend in weight loss. A growing number of health professionals are also prescribing fasting to people with type 2 diabetes, which currently afflicts more than 29 million people in the U.S. Yet a recent study warns that going for long stretches without eating could cause the very damage it’s supposed to prevent.
Type 2 diabetes is triggered in part by unhealthy eating, which renders the body resistant to insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Without insulin, sugar from food can’t enter our cells, leaving the blood with an excess amount of it. At first, the pancreas compensates by making more insulin, but eventually the demand wears out the digestive organ. Diabetics then become dependent on insulin injections to control their blood sugar.
Dr. Jason Fung, a kidney specialist, is convinced that fasting undoes that cycle: Not eating reduces blood sugar. As he points out, fasting is simply extending what we already do at night when we sleep. “It’s supposed to be part of everyday life,” says Fung, who co-founded the Toronto-based Intensive Dietary Management Program and wrote The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Fasting . Fasting can also send the body into ketosis, in which it burns fat rather than sugar. That helps with losing weight, which also helps slow diabetes.
A flight attendant says 'nobody cares' if you actually turn off your phone on a plane — and reveals the disgusting reason you should never drink coffee in the air
An unnamed flight attendant revealed secrets of the trade in an interview with Vice.
She says nobody switches off their phones on planes, not even staff members.
There's also an ideal time for joining the mile-high club, she says — but there's never a good time to order coffee in the sky.
She says there's only one way to score an upgrade, and it's all about bargaining power.
How Extreme Clean Eating and Exercise Almost Killed This Blogger: 'I Got It in My Head That Food Was Evil'
What started out as an attempt to cut out unhealthy food and way to relieve stress turned into an obsession that almost killed Christina Rice.
The Addicted To Lovely blogger, 23, became obsessed with clean eating after experiencing digestive issues in college. She believed that cutting sugar, carbs and fat could help her get healthy, so she changed her diet to only eating food that is minimally processed.
“I had read ‘this food is going to do X, Y and Z to your body,’ and I got it in my head that that food was evil, and so I was afraid of it,” Rice told Delish.
Around the same time, the former UCLA student started exercising 75 minutes per day at least six days per week as a way to manage stress.
Before long, the combination turned into an obsession that made Rice drop 40 lbs. in under three months. Rice eventually realized was experiencing exercise addiction and orthorexia, a fixation with healthy eating that actually has an adverse effect. However, she and those in her life didn’t see how diet and exercise could be a problem.
Former Facebook Exec: 'You Don’t Realize It But You Are Being Programmed'
Last month, Facebook’s first president Sean Parker opened up about his regrets over helping create social media as we know it today. “I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because of the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other,” Parker said. “God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”
Chamath Palihapitiya, former vice president of user growth, also recently expressed his concerns. During a recent public discussion at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Palihapitiya—who worked at Facebook from 2005 to 2011—told the audience, “I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”
Don't worry about eggs—these other foods are way more likely to give you Salmonella
An apology up front: this is not a free pass to eat raw cookie dough. It may be uncommon for Salmonella to find its way into your eggs, but that doesn’t mean there’s no risk. Even the raw flour can harbor bacteria, so there’s no escape in an eggless mix. It’s just a gooey, buttery risk that you will sometimes take on—because you are human, and to err when faced with a spoonful of snickerdoodle dough is the human-est thing of all.
The good news is that eggs are mostly not to blame for foodborne illnesses, and neither is chicken. The bad news is that there’s not a ton you can do about avoiding the true hiding places of these bacterial pathogens.
The X-rated way to clear your sinuses: Man cured his stuffy nose by MASTURBATING - and doctors explain it DOES work
A man claimed that masturbating cleared his sinuses - and doctors said he was right.
Skyler, a husband from Arizona, said that when he couldn't fall asleep due to his stuffy nose, he decided to take matters into his own hands.
He appeared on the show The Doctors where the professionals broke down the science behind his X-rated trick. They explained that during an orgasm the muscles contract around the body, including inside the nose, which can temporarily relieve sinus pressure for both men and women.
Research has shown orgasms can also help with the immune system, insomnia, stress, pain and overall help live longer.
Drinking More Cold Water Burns a Few More Calories
Does drinking more water really help dieting? A small study says drinking more cold water may help you burn a few more calories each day. How many? You burn about 50 calories per quart (or liter) of cold water, or about 25 calories per typical water bottle full of cold water. The effect mostly comes from the body needing to heat up the water in your digestive tract. It's a small effect, about the equivalent of five plain M&M candies.
How much water you should drink each day regardless of dieting is a common question. Apart from the water you get in food, medical references say women should drink about nine cups of beverages each day (73 ounces) and men should drink 12.5 cups (100 ounces) of beverages. With exercise, you should replenish the water you lose through sweat. See how much water to drink for walking and exercise.
Mayonnaise is disgusting, and science agrees
For much of the past year, I have fought a one-sided battle with a popular fast casual restaurant chain that we’ll call “Ready.” Unlike most restaurants, Ready doesn't make sandwiches, assemble salads, or otherwise perform acts of cookery upon customer request. Instead they sell nominally healthy, whole-ingredient-based pre-made soups, salads, and sandwiches. Because I’m lazy and impatient, I’m Ready’s perfect customer and not just because Ready has a location in Popular Sciences’ building. They also have another four locations (including one that sells beer) along my commute. So you'd think that Ready sandwiches would be a regular part of my nutritional rotation. But they aren't, because Ready’s sandwiches are disgusting.
The problem is that Ready saturates almost every sandwich with a miasma of mayonnaise. When Ready doesn't use mayonnaise, they use a yogurt dressing which is mayonnaise for people who are ashamed that they're eating mayonnaise. The shame is justified, the yogurt dressing is not. Sometimes Ready uses a less vile condiment, like a whole grain mustard—a condiment with dignity. But when they do, the powers that be cannot allow its presence to go unmolested. No, the mustard gets mixed in with mayonnaise in an abomination called mustard-mayo. Mixing Sriracha with diarrhea doesn’t improve the presence of the latter. Why would adding mustard to Satan's sauce improve the situation?
