    1. Popular Types of Workout Trainer Apps and How to Build One

      In this article, we’ll tell you how to make a fitness app. Our experience in building such apps allows us to understand all the trends in this sphere, and we would like to share our expertise with you.

    1. There's an interesting suggestion associated with this, that periodic fasting causes autophagy, which Taleb claims is an evolutionary process by which the weaker proteins are broken down first. If this is true, then always having a full stomach is another way of subsidizing the unfit and weakening the organism.

      This will depend on a very specific and narrow definition of fitness--perhaps one from a very individualistic and libertarian perspective.

      There is fitness at the level of the gene, the organ, the individual, and the group, and even possibly larger groupings above that.

      What if, by starving out and leaving "uneducated" people like Srinivasa Ramanujan, for example, who surely was marginalized for his time, society is left without them? While on an individual level Ramanujan may have been less fit on some levels as G.H. Hardy and may have otherwise dwindled and disappeared, Hardy adopted him and made both mathematicians better while also making dramatic strides for mankind.

      From a statistical mechanics perspective, within some reasonable limits, we should be focusing on improving ourselves as well as the larger group(s) because the end results for humanity and life in general may be dramatically improved. (Though what we mean by improved here may be called into question from a definitional perspective.)

      Compare this with [Malcolm Gladwell]]'s argument in My Little Hundred Million.

      On a nationalistic level within human politics, Republicans should be less reticent to help out marginalized Americans because it may be from this pool of potential that we may find life saving improvements or even protection from other polities (ie, in our competition or threats from countries like China, Iran, North Korea). Consider how different things may have been had the U.S. not taken in Jewish or other foreign nationals like Albert Einstein, John von Neumann, etc. in the early to mid-1900s.? Now consider, which life changing geniuses we may be preventing reaching their potential by our current immigration policies? our current educational policies?

    1. IS186-mediated integration of the plasmid into the chromosome or deletion of these accessory genes from an evolved plasmid that remained capable of self-replication conferred greater fitness benefits than SP formation

      Can we say this is because of the combined fitness benefit

      • by avoiding maintenance of a plasmid and
        • lower expression of proteins?

      Especially considering that there is expression of the accessory genes (ex: GFP in fig.2e)-> so the protein level fitness burden still exists, albeit at a lower extent.

      How much of this burden is attributed to keeping a plasmid around?, maybe this could be tested with a low copy pSC101 type plasmid or by deleting all the accessory genes and repeating the evolution experiment to specifically look for the integrants this time

    1. Don’t compare today’s workout to yesterday’s, but do compare it to something you did a few weeks, or months, or even years ago.

      ok

    1. Multiply that number by 85 percent to roughly approximate an effort cap for easy runs (though adjusting to a different percentage if you feel like that’s a bit too hard or too easy).

      Another article suggests subtracting 20bpm

    1. Mobile Apps - Changing the World of Fitness and Healthcare Industry

      Recent research state that the global healthcare mobility solutions market is assumed to cross almost $84,818 millions by the end of the year 2020. Both the customers and industry can require better, mobile-powered solutions for improved patient care, impressive record maintenance, robust data security, enhanced interpersonal connections, and a source file healthcare and fitness training and production.

    1. brisk walk or a slow jog—for 1 to 2.5 hours every week lowers your risk of death by 25%
    2. those who run more than 25 miles per week have no mortality benefit, compared with nonrunners.
    3. By Paige Greenfield Sep 3, 2015 Getty Images/Tim Macpherson James O'Keefe, 58, is a cardiologist at Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City, MO. A self-proclaimed "exercise enthusiast," O'Keefe says there was a time—decades, in fact—when he would routinely spend 2 to 3 hours a day running and working out vigorously. "I rarely took a day off," he recalls.  Advertisement - Continue Reading Below But if you see O'Keefe exercising today, you'll likely spot the MD on a postdinner stroll with his family. He also enjoys practicing yoga or doing some gentle backstrokes in the swimming pool. What changed? O'Keefe investigated the effects of intense physical activity on the human heart and body. The fruits of his and others' research inspired him to dial down his own routine."If your goal is exercising for overall health and to improve your longevity, then walking is ideal," he says. (Learn how to walk away from belly fat, heart disease, and diabetes in just minutes a day with Prevention's new Walk Your Way To Better Health.) Running Is Hard On Your Heart  Getty Images In one of his studies, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, O'Keefe and his colleagues found that people who run most days of the week at a pace faster than 7 miles per hour have the same risk of death as sedentary individuals.

    1. To put it generally, all the valuable qualities that youth and age divide between them are united in the prime of life, while all their excesses or defects are replaced by moderation and fitness. The body is in its prime from thirty to five-and-thirty; the mind about forty-nine.
