    1. However as we mentioned earlier on the subject of biological growth populations, this does not mean that one could not improve a chronology by reducing the number of series used if the purpose of removing samples is to enhance a desired signal. The ability to pick and choose which samples to use is an advantage unique to dendroclimatology. That said, it begs the question: how low can we go?
    1. Before venturing into the subject of sample depth and chronology quality, we state from the beginning, "more is always better".

    1. But since Snowdon is hyperallergic to the stuffy and the dull, and can smell pretention like a shark smells a corpuscle of blood in miles of open water, laughter is never far away. The image is constructed laboriously, finding the pose is a journey, but Snowdon creates an atmosphere of carnival when it suits his purpose. Sometimes the joke might be on the sitter as much as with them. Photographing the writer Bruce Chatwin, who was famously ambisexual, Snowdon called him Bruce when he was in front of the camera, but after he'd retreated around the corner to undress into another rugged outfit, to my astonishment, Snowdon would call out "Ruth?"—obviously adoring Bruce's manly, unwitting reply of, "Yah?" Risky, vintage Snowdon.

    2. Anyway, after forty life is too short for reading poor books.
    3. I have limited myself to 100 spaces for the next 10 years. That’s an average of 10 books per year
    4. thrillers are excepted from the reading ticket
    5. I consider it time wasted if a book leaves no traces in the brain, either because it is a poor book or because one has read it poorly
    6. A book gets no more than ten minutes of my time before a verdict is reached – to read or not to read.
    7. I read as much as before, to be sure, but fewer and better books, and each twice.

    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.
