How could Margaret Thatcher function on four hours sleep a night?
Independent sleep expert. Formerly director of sleep research at the University... · 24 ноября 2016
She couldn’t. It’s a pack of lies. When Charles Moore wrote the first volume of his biography of Thatcher, he was asked about this. He said there was absolutely no evidence that she only slept four hours a night. It was a bit of a story put around so she could appear to be more macho... Читать далее

The American College of Sports Medicine is widely quoted as recommending 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise a week, split over 3-5 sessions per week. You might do shorter, more frequent sessions or perhaps longer, less frequent sessions. Typically we try and aim for at least... Читать далее
Should well-being not economic growth be used to measure our progress?
Professor of Social and Political Philosophy, University of Southampton. @unisou... · 24 января 2017
When we talk about economic growth we are usually talking about Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and it is a pretty crude and unhelpful metric that disguises a lot of things. It doesn’t reflect whether a society is very equal or unequal – and it doesn’t get to what really matters to people... Читать далее
Why is the risk of cancer now up from 1:3 to 1:2 in the UK among people born since 1965??
Professor of biostatistics and cancer epidemiology at the Wolfson Institute at... · 24 ноября 2016
Although the figure that one in two people in the UK born after 1960 are at risk sounds frightening, the main reason for this increase is actually a good one. It’s because more and more people are living long enough to get cancer.
Cancer is primarily a disease of old age, with more than... Читать далее

Yes, you probably would. Exposing yourself consistently to a barrage of negativity and pain is likely to drain even the most positive of people!

First of all, look at the style of running you want to do – there are shoes for sprinters, marathon runners, weekend joggers, so pick something that’s suited to your field. I would say, look at the best in that area and check their feet. Someone like Mo Farah wears shoes that are like... Читать далее
What is the difference between love and mental disturbance?

I’ve heard this question before, and I think it’s an unfortunate one. The idea is based on the view that people who are in love and who are experiencing a mental illness share similar symptoms. Or that they have similar underlying biological processes.
