Phys Ed: Does Exercise Boost Immunity? - Well Blog - NYTimes.com
"Two recent experiments hit rather close to home at this time of year. In the first, published last year in the journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity, researchers divided mice into two groups. One rested comfortably in their cages. The other ran on little treadmills until they were exhausted. This continued for three days. The mice were then exposed to an influenza virus. After a few days, more of the mice who’d exhausted themselves running came down with the flu than the control mice. They also had more severe symptoms. In the second experiment, published in the same journal, scientists from the University of Illinois and other schools first infected laboratory mice with flu. One group then rested; a second group ran for a leisurely 20 or 30 minutes, an easy jog for a mouse; the third group ran for a taxing two and a half hours. Each group repeated this routine for three days, until they began to show flu symptoms. The flu bug used in this experiment is devastating to rodents, and... more... - RAPatton from Bookmarklet
"The bulk of the new research, including the mouse studies mentioned, reinforce a theory that physiologists advanced some years ago, about what they call “a J-shaped curve” involving exercise and immunity. In this model, the risk both of catching a cold or the flu and of having a particularly severe form of the infection “drop if you exercise moderately,” says Mary P. Miles, PhD, an... more... - RAPatton
My personal experience supports this research. It's all about Goldilocks exercise: not too much, not too little, but just right. - Aaron Schaub from iPod

Memo to the media: Fox News is now the Opposition Party | Media Matters for America - http://mediamatters.org/columns...
"Fox News has changed the rules. Now the press needs to change the way it covers Fox News. Rupert Murdoch's cable cabal is now, first and foremost, a political entity. Fox News has transformed itself into the Opposition Party of the Obama White House, which, of course, is unprecedented for a media company in modern-day America. That partisan embrace means the news media have to expand beyond typing up Fox News-ratings-are-up and the White-House-is-angry stories, and it needs to start treating the cable channel for what it is: a partisan animal. The press needs to drop its longstanding gentleman's agreement not to write about other news outlets as news players --not to get bogged down in criticizing the competition -- because those newsroom rules no longer apply. Fox News has exited the journalism community this year. It's a purely political player, and journalists ought to start covering it that way." - Vampire Hunter DYSP from Bookmarklet
it's probably best to assume that all media is partisan, and be pleasantly surprised if it ever turns out otherwise :D - Mike Chelen
Rene: bias is to be knowingly misleading. isn't that typical yellow journalism? - Mike Chelen
Rene: although viewpoints are always subjective, it is refusing to look for bias that guarantees an increase of objective discrepancies. how can anyone start to be unbiased without self-criticism? - Mike Chelen
They have been a republican-mouthpiece for years now, why did it take MM so long to call them out? - dthree
The key to the concept of bias is having a vested interest. For instance, nearly every journalist who's a native son of a democracy is bias toward values based on democratic principals—no one I know personally is going to complain about a beat reporter doing their job with that bias in full swing. Fingers are pointing at the Fox enterprise in particular because they've wholesale *divested* their interest in anything outside the present incarnation of the hardline conservative political culture. - Micah

If you use iTunes on Mac and aren't using Pollux you're missing a treat. http://polluxapp.com/ - free but I just donated. It's so good.
Too bad I don't trust anyone's genre assignations other than my own. - Akiva
thanks for the tip. - Edgar Rodríguez
thanks leo,now i may have to download it and try it out! looks nice :) - pcguru626
It just tagged one of my original tunes to Edie Brickell, but otherwise it seems to be getting them all correct! - B Bagby
I'll give it a try, thax for the info Leo - Alex
Looks cool, any Windows support coming? - lawrence kenski
Did you bring down their server? It says something went wrong and to try again later. Or maybe it is not working. - Alex
it's awesome, i too shall donate - Paul Meyers
Anything like this at all for the PC. - Mark Wolvin
It get's my highest praise, "Doesn't suck." - Steve Feinstein
ok, im amazed. just correctly corrected 162 out of 170 tracks with "track xyz" as their title. - Jamie
I don't get how you can get your iTunes library in such a state: http://polluxapp.com/Screens... Without using this app, my iTunes library has all the necessary metadata, and I didn't make any effort to have it like that. - Paul Grav
Anything similar on windows, on iTunes or foobar or winamp or anything? I'd like to see a program that has a "search for year info on Wikipedia" option. Actually, why isn't there an app where I can manually correct track info on my iPhone while I'm listening and have the corrections sync back? - Chuck Kahn
Paul, mainly by downloading music illegally from places like Kazaa (is that even around anymore?) and torrents. - Akiva from BuddyFeed
Thanks for the link leo! - Jan Persiel
It may be a coincidence, but I sent this link to my husband and when he tried to download the application he had to force quit Safari and it triggered all kinds of virus messages! He said he was not willing to try to duplicate the problem! - Ginger Campbell, MD
So, don't run this on compilation/greatest hits albums, unless you want the songs retagged to the original albums. - Demian Johnston
@Chuck Kahn - A cross platform (albeit more complex) tagger is Jaikox - http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz/ I've been using it on the Mac for about a year, much more complicated - and not free... but it works. - Christopher Aloi
It just gave me errors. F that. - deleted
I liked it until it ended up misidentifying a great deal of songs, now I have to take the time to manually edit them back. Or just break out the CDs and rip them all over again. It can't tell the difference between tracks from a live album versus their studio recorded counterparts. It gets an E for effort. - Bryan K Erickson
It also gets in this state if you were managing music well before iTunes came to PC. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
When I used to do stuff in Windows, I used MP3Tag. - Akiva
Hooo-Rah! - Eric Anderson
This app worked perfect for me. Well done! - Mike Shulman
I downloaded it and it did not do anything. - Kelly J
@Kelly J: You need to highlight some songs in iTunes and then click "Tag selected iTunes tracks". - Antoniu
Very cool idea, but I have tried it on two albums and it got one song wrong both times. It also hasn't grabbed lyrics on any song I've tried so far, and that was main reason for trying it. All my stuff is tagged properly already. Any apps that just grab the lyrics? - Justin Luey
...well, it is 'beta' software, or has that label lost all meaning these days? - .LAG liked that
I think some of the data it uses is a bit suspect. One artist, two versions of the same song but different lengths, and they're classed as being from the same album. What's with the lyrics bit - where do they appear? - Mike Caine

Cat Survives 13 Shots to Head and Still Finds Way Home | Amazing | News | PEOPLE Pets
"A furry gray cat named Smokey strayed from his home, was held down by a heartless thug and shot in the head 13 times—and survived. In a tale of sickening cruelty and remarkable spirit, 9-year-old Smokey turned up at the doorstep of his home in Carisbrook, Australia, one morning, several days after disappearing. His owner, Liz Dunn, burst into tears when she saw him; little Smokey’s face was battered and bleeding, and his left eye appeared shredded." - Kelly from Bookmarklet
"Police have launched an investigation to identify Smokey’s attackers. Meanwhile, the sweet-natured cat is back home with Dunn and her children (above), who marvel at Smokey’s resilience—he not only survived the horrific attack but somehow managed to find his way back home with only one eye. Police say Smokey is expected to recover from his injuries." - Kelly
Poor, brave kitty :( - Kelly

Amazing kitty! - Anne Bouey

What makes you think Google got this domain? It's not registered to them according to WHOIS and is currently pointing at Go Daddy name servers. - Tony Ruscoe
tony google is partners with godaddy and is a 404 page of google that might not be promising but still... - testbeta
Google does not generally control its DNS via Go Daddy. I'm pretty sure someone just registered this domain and then pointed it at Google's servers. - Tony Ruscoe
Can someone post a screenshot of what they're seeing on that domain? It's blocked by my company's proxy server due to "Advertisements & Popups" not being allowed (which makes me even more suspicious). - Tony Ruscoe
it's a 404 page of google there - testbeta
It may just be a misconfiguration issue by someone at Godaddy. Or somebody is playing tricks on us to led us to believe dropbox.com is now with Google. :-| - AJ Batac
Debunked. I think it's pretty clear that Google does not own that domain. The domain owner is likely pointing it at that server to use Google's AdSense for Domains or something (http://www.google.com/domainp...) but may have been banned. The instructions for that service say to update your DNS so that it points at 216.239.32.21 - i.e. the IP address shown here: http://www.robtex.com/dns... - Tony Ruscoe

"This year, Chicago celebrates the centennial anniversary of the publication of Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett’s Plan of Chicago. The Plan, now considered an ur-text of urban planning, was conceived with the greater metropolitan region in mind, and identified six cornerstones of development: highways, rails, parks, systematized streets, civic centers, and the lakefront. Over the several decades that followed, Burnham’s vision transformed not just Chicago’s visual landscape, but its social and psychological portrait as well. To honor the anniversary, the city asked local architects, planners and landscape architects to issue proposals for large- and small-scale developments for the new century. The results are startling—alternately haunting and comic, they offer both sweeping answers to systemic ills and imaginative exercises in, for example, an “umbrella of magnetic energy” that “powers public transportation.” (Below, see an overview of 9 striking proposals.)" - Vampire Hunter DYSP from Bookmarklet

Does Falling in Love Make Us More Creative?: Scientific American - http://www.scientificamerican.com/article...
Does Falling in Love Make Us More Creative?: Scientific American
"Love has inspired countless works of art, from immortal plays such as Romeo and Juliet, to architectural masterpieces such as the Taj Mahal, to classic pop songs, like Queen's “Love of My Life”. This raises the obvious question: why is love such a stimulating emotion? Why does the act of falling in love – or at least thinking about love – lead to such a spur of creative productivity? One possibility is that when we’re in love we actually think differently. This romantic hypothesis was recently tested by the psychologists Jens Förster, Kai Epstude, and Amina Özelsel at the University of Amsterdam. The researchers found that love really does alter our thoughts, and that this profound emotion affects us in a way that is different than simply thinking about sex." - RAPatton from Bookmarklet
"The clever experiments demonstrated that love makes us think differently in that it triggers global processing, which in turn promotes creative thinking and interferes with analytic thinking. Thinking about sex, however, has the opposite effect: it triggers local processing, which in turn promotes analytic thinking and interferes with creativity. Why does love make us think more... more... - RAPatton
it makes me stupid :S - Elif Durmaz
"One of the most noteworthy implications of these experiments is that love and sex don’t simply influence the way we think about the people we love or desire. Instead, they influence the way we think about everything. The same researchers demonstrate this tendency in yet another experiment. When in love, it seems, we struggle to distinguish between the different qualities of the beloved... more... - RAPatton

Showtime’s Dexter and Californication Now Playing on YouTube
"Sure, we’ve already seen the Hulufication of YouTube, but until today the most exciting content came from deals with CNN, Cartoon Network, and the WB. Compare that against Hulu’s powerhouse prime-time television show line-up, and you’ve got a bit of a flop (though it’s certainly not hurting their online video views). But YouTube just announced that the full-length Showtime season premieres of Dexter and Californication can now be watched by US viewers through October 12th.
