The “Christmas Truce” of World War I (1914): people who sings same carols in different languages, on Christmas, at least, cannot by enemies, even in the most helish circumstances (not of their own making)


The “Christmas Truce” of World War I (1914)

this pressed: Mindfulness-based weight loss programs questioned – CBS News


Weight loss programs that stress mindfulnessself-awareness achieved by meditation and self-acceptance, paying attention to a body’s hunger cues and learning to enjoy food at a slower pace — are enjoying a surge in popularity.

“There are many reasons to think mindfulness would be relevant for weight loss because people may have a range of behavioral and psychological responses to eating that mindfulness can address, including helping them slow down and focus on enjoying a meal,” Charles Emery, professor of psychology at Ohio State and senior author of the study, said in a press statement.”But our review of the research shows we still have a long way to go to provide convincing evidence of the benefits of mindfulness for weight loss and, especially, how it may work.”

A young man in Michigan is now behind bars and facing contraband charges after allegedly attempting this feat and failing, his football landing short between two fences at a state prison rather than in the inmates’ exercise yard. Not only did the boneheaded criminal fail to make his delivery, but he also attempted it in full view of one of the prison’s guards and was quickly apprehended. More… Discuss
