Is Schwarzenegger to Blame for Your Spare Tire?


Is Schwarzenegger to Blame for Your Spare Tire?

It doesn’t take a scientist to figure out that being a couch potato isn’t good for one’s waistline, but it does take one—in fact, it took an entire team—to figure out which genre of TV or film is likely to do the most damage. The answer, as it turns out, is action. People watching an action film ate twice the amount of food by weight and 65 percent more calories than those watching an interview program. All in all, the researchers conclude, people should avoid snacking when watching TV, particularly when watching highly distracting content like action movies. More… Discuss

Google has reportedly launched an update to its Chromecast media streamer that signals the company’s intention to heavily police what users can do with the device. As it stands now, Chromecast users can no longer stream local content to their HDTVs from a third-party app, a move believed to be no accidental side effect from the recent firmware update.

Just a thought: “Fictitious reality…”, by George-B ©Always


Just a thought:  “Fictitious reality: Nothing complicates reality more than fiction
fictitious reality is not something new:It’s been allowed
to make court for emperors and kings,
houses and congresses
presidents and councils

The story of clothes, the story of tailors are
as fictitious as they are real

They’re as real today as they were in the dark aged years
They are cloaked in lies, and shades of no pure thought
They eat the mouth of the truthful and worse: they care not!
They feel the running of colors and fixation of lie, the false apparel that’s as transparent as finest crystal glass.

UK Calls Off the Toddlers’ Truce (1957)

Today we are used to turning on the television at any hour of the day or night and having access to countless channels broadcasting all manner of program, but this was not always the case. In television’s early days, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) was the UK’s sole public broadcaster; it started out with just one channel, and it cut its feed from 6PM to 7PM to accommodate parents putting their children to bed. What caused the BBC to eventually abandon the so-called Toddlers’ Truce?More… Discuss

Chuck is an American action-comedy/spy-drama television series created by Josh Schwartz andChris Fedak. The series is about an “average computer-whiz-next-door” named Chuck, played byZachary Levi, who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working for theCentral Intelligence Agency (CIA); the message embeds the only remaining copy of a software program containing the United States’ greatest spy secrets into Chuck’s brain.[1][2]

Produced by College Hill Pictures, Fake Empire ProductionsWonderland Sound and Vision, andWarner Bros. Television, the series premiered on September 24, 2007, on NBC, airing on Monday nights at 8/7c.[3][4]

As the second season closed, flagging ratings put Chuck in danger of cancellation, but fans mounted a successful campaign to encourage NBC to renew the show.[5] The campaign was unique in that fans specifically targeted a sponsor of the show, the Subway restaurant chain, and the chain struck a major sponsorship deal with NBC to help cover costs of the third season.[6] The series’ renewal was uncertain in each subsequent season. The fifth season was the last; it began on October 28, 2011, moving to Friday nights at 8pm/7 Central.[7] The series concluded on January 27, 2012 with a two-hour finale.[8]

Leonard Cohen – The Partisan



The Partisan, by Leonard Cohen

When they poured across the border

I was cautioned to surrender,
this I could not do;
I took my gun and vanished.
I have changed my name so often,
I’ve lost my wife and children
but I have many friends,
and some of them are with me.

An old woman gave us shelter,
kept us hidden in the garret,
then the soldiers came;
she died without a whisper.

There were three of us this morning
I’m the only one this evening
but I must go on;
the frontiers are my prison.

Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
through the graves the wind is blowing,
freedom soon will come;
then we’ll come from the shadows.

Les Allemands e’taient chez moi, (The Germans were at my home)
ils me dirent, “Signe toi,” (They said, “Sign yourself,”)
mais je n’ai pas peur; (But I am not afraid)
j’ai repris mon arme. (I have retaken my weapon.)

J’ai change’ cent fois de nom, (I have changed names a hundred times)
j’ai perdu femme et enfants (I have lost wife and children)
mais j’ai tant d’amis; (But I have so many friends)
j’ai la France entie`re. (I have all of France)

Un vieil homme dans un grenier (An old man, in an attic)
pour la nuit nous a cache’, (Hid us for the night)
les Allemands l’ont pris; (The Germans captured him)
il est mort sans surprise. (He died without surprise.)

Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
through the graves the wind is blowing,
freedom soon will come;
then we’ll come from the shadows.
