7 Reasons You Struggle with Happiness

It’s important to make someone happy, and it’s important to start with yourself. But before your level of contentment can improve, your choices and actions must improve. If you’ve been struggling to find happiness there’s a good chance… When you feel flustered because someone has received the very thing you want, force yourself to remember how much you have already been given. Remember that there’s plenty for everyone, and that everyone gets one dose at a time. Remember that what happened to someone else has absolutely no bearing on what happens to you. Your success is unique to you. Devamını Oku »

Why humans are brainier than chimps

A new study sheds light on why humans are so much more intelligent than chimpanzees despite sharing almost 99% of the same DNA.  Though humans have much the same genes as chimps, it seems that this genetic information can behave differently in the two species.  When researchers looked how genes operate in human and chimp livers, brains and blood, they found the biggest differences in the brains.  The work could help understand how humans evolved and why some diseases affected the two species differently Devamını Oku »

Scientists identify what makes us feel ‘bad’ when we’re sick, how to treat it

A signaling system in the brain previously shown to regulate sleep is also responsible for inducing lethargy during illness, according to research conducted at Oregon Health & Science University Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

Motivation is key to team success

Britain’s Sean Yates was well known for his tireless, and selfless, team time-trialing during his long Tour de France career. Yates, now manager of Britain’s Linda McCartney Foods Cycling Team, gives BBC Sport Online a few pointers for Tuesday’s 70-kilometre team time-trial.

How to Raise Our I.Q

Poor people have I.Q.’s significantly lower than those of rich people, and the awkward conventional wisdom has been that this is in large part a function of genetics. After all, a series of studies seemed to indicate that I.Q. is largely inherited. Identical twins raised apart, for example, have I.Q.’s that are remarkably similar. They are even closer on average than those of fraternal twins who grow up together. If intelligence were deeply encoded in our genes, that would lead to the depressing conclusion that neither schooling nor antipoverty programs can accomplish much. Yet while this view of I.Q.
