Can Diet Increase The Risk Of Alzheimer’s Disease? Research Suggests Yes.

In addition, a person is likely to see various advertisements and campaigns about different types of cancer in comparison with other health conditions which can be equally and need as much awareness too.

3 Mood-Boosting Foods to Eat Every Day

3 Mood-Boosting Foods to Eat Every Day

It’s the changing seasons, the culminating stress, or maybe even a big move or life event—these factors can all affect our mood, often for the worse. The actual physiological and chemical reasons for a change in mood are much more complex, but what it boils down to is that life takes a toll on us, and many of us aren’t equipped to handle it all with grace.

Depleted of certain key nutrients, our brains are less able to bounce back and adapt to stress or changing environments, leading us to feel more moody and irritable. As a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner (FDN-P), I support people every day in their health journey, part of which includes improving their moods. To avoid […]

‘Sweating’ Robots Edging Closer to Being Human

‘Sweating’ Robots Edging Closer to Being Human

A trio of roboticists at the University of Tokyo have designed two of the most advanced humanoid robots yet. Thanks to their human-inspired musculoskeletal structures and extreme flexibility, the robots, named Kengoro and Kenshiro , can engage in a number of impressive human-like actions like sit-ups, push-ups, and even stretches. However, the most surprising aspect is their ability to exercise and even break a sweat.

The machinery that allows these tendon-driven robots to more accurately mimic a human heats up, requiring water to circulate through the robot’s special porous aluminum frame to cool it. This allows the heated water to escape as vapor through the frame’s porouses to accomplish the cooling.

The video below shows Kengoro, the most advanced of the […]

How to Give Up Your 4 Worst Eating Habits For Good

How to Give Up Your 4 Worst Eating Habits For Good

There’s something addictive about salty snacks and sugary soda — science says so.

For instance, when your stress levels skyrocket, so does your need for potato chips. Research suggests that downing salty foods can decrease the amount of cortisol — a stress-producing hormone — in your body. At the same time, the feel-good hormone oxytocin increases, making you feel better after you indulge.

Sugar addiction is real , too. One study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating lots of the sweet stuff can stimulate regions in your brain associated with other addictions, like gambling or drug abuse.

Your move, then, is to nix these vices from your diet, so you can make room for the good stuff. […]

David Hanson envisions a future in which robots powered by artificial intelligence evolve to become "super-intelligent genius machines" that might help solve some of mankind’s most challenging problems.

If only it were as simple as that.

The Texas-born former sculptor at Walt Disney Imagineering and his Hong Kong-based startup Hanson Robotics are combining AI with southern China’s expertise in toy design, electronics and manufacturing to craft humanoid "social robots" with faces designed to be lifelike and appealing enough to win trust from humans who interact with them.Hanson, 49, […]

Robot Writing, AI, and Marketing: It’s the End of the World as We Know It

Picture if you will, dear reader, the marketing apocalypse, a place where human-powered engines are less and less relevant and we are facing a new dawn: robot writing, triggered email campaigns, automated social scheduling and responses, ways to track users wherever they go.

Oh, hang on. Isn’t that . . . ? the future is here Yeah, it is. We would say welcome to the future, but that scares an awful lot of people. Case in point: all these stories about the robots coming to take our marketing jobs. There is legitimate worry in our industry today, and with good reason. AI and marketing are a perfect mix; so much of what we do involves crunching data and analytics. Surely […]
