Maybe moderate drinking isn't so good for you after all
We generally assume moderate drinking (two standard drinks per day) is good for our health.

This idea comes from studies over the past three decades showing moderate drinkers are healthier and less likely to die prematurely than those who drink more, less, or don’t drink at all.

I would be glad if this were true.

But our latest research challenges this view. We found while moderate drinkers are healthier than relatively heavy drinkers or non-drinkers, they are also wealthier. When we control for the influence of wealth, then alcohol’s apparent health benefit is much reduced in women aged 50 years or older, and disappears completely in men of similar age.

Grid Garden - A game for learning CSS grid
Welcome to Grid Garden, where you write CSS code to grow your carrot garden! Water only the areas that have carrots by using the grid-column-start property.

For example, grid-column-start: 3; will water the area starting at the 3rd vertical grid line, which is another way of saying the 3rd vertical border from the left in the grid.

Neurokirurg: Kontraproduktivt demonisera cyklister utan hjälm
– Folk kan också inbilla sig att det är väldigt farligt att cykla och att det är idioti att inte använda hjälm – när det inte finns vetenskapliga bevis för någotdera, säger Jari Siironen.

Siironen sitter med i en God medicinsk praxis-arbetsgrupp för vård av hjärnskador där han tilldelats ansvaret för hjälmar. Han anser att ett hjälmtvång vore till mer skada än nytta, eftersom det skulle göra cyklismen mindre lockande. Särskilt kunde det ha en negativ effekt på folk som cyklar då och då.

Till skillnad från den bild upplysningskampanjerna målar upp, är hjärnskador ganska ovanliga bland cyklister i Finland. Finsk statistik visar att hälften av hjärnskadorna sker bland fotgängare av vilka största delen är berusade.

– Om spriten tog slut i världen, skulle jag bli arbetslös. Om cykelskadorna försvann, skulle jag inte ens märka det, säger Siironen.

Cykelhjälmar skyddar mot ytliga sår och skrapor och Siironen uppmuntrar folk att använda hjälm, men han poängterar att lätta cykelhjälmar inte alls ger ett så bra skydd mot hjärnans rörelser som sker inuti skallen vid fall.

Most Underrated Place in California, Florida, Texas, New York, and Every US State - Thrillist
Every state in this country has something -- be it a park, a museum, a mountain, hell, an entire freaking city -- that's downright fantastic but just doesn't get the credit it's due. Sure, maybe it's known, loved, and revered by some people in the region (those who, no doubt, will roll their eyes at this list 'cause they're already in the know) but for the most part, these spots go unnoticed, or worse, play second fiddle to more popular destinations. 

Where are these places? We wanted to know. So to find out, we asked the experts -- from our knowledgeable local writers and editors, to the state tourism boards and visitors bureaus, to our high school friends who never moved away. (OK, so maybe not all experts.) And while we got a lot of suggestions -- from vineyards in Rhode Island to space museums in Mississippi -- each of these 50 best fit the bill as the most underrated place in its US state.

Apple’s Icons Have That Shape for a Very Good Reason
Apple products are described as minimalistic, but ‘minimalistic’ shouldn’t be confused with ’simple.’ There’s nothing simple about the surfacing efforts on their hardware products. It’s not something the average Apple product owner is likely to be aware of unless pointed out by their Industrial Designer friend.
A ‘secret’ of Apple’s physical products is that they avoid tangency (where a radius meets a line at a single point) and craft their surfaces with what’s called curvature continuity. Once you know how to spot it on products, you’re likely to start seeing it (or more likely the lack of it) all around you.
The spotter’s guide to good surfacing.
Here are two products that are basic rectangular boxes with a rounded edge (the one on the left also has some unpleasant drafted walls, but that’s another article about how to become a hardware design snob). Look at the beginning and end of that rounded edge on the main surface. See how there’s a sharp shift in highlight? That’s the result of tangency.

How Much Should a WordPress Theme Cost? Hundreds of Themes Analyzed
Pricing is one of the most important traits of any product. To this end, WordPress theme cost should be a crucial sales factor. Yet, looking at the state of the WordPress market today, there’s a bewildering array of different approaches to pricing models.

This post takes an empirical look at what’s going on, explores how much different themes cost (with analysis from hundreds of themes) and considers what the best route forward is for theme vendors in this extremely competitive market.
WordPress theme pricing (April 2017)

Where do we stand with WordPress theme prices today? Long story short, I made a list of as many WordPress themes as I could find, put them into a big spreadsheet, and did the sums.

High-intensity interval training rapidly improves diabetics' glucose metabolism -- ScienceDaily
New research reveals that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) increases glucose metabolism in muscles as well as insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes. After just a two-week training period, the glucose uptake in thigh muscles returned to a normal level.

"It's particularly good news that when it comes to the glucose metabolism and endurance it does not seem to matter in whether the exercise takes place over a longer period of time as moderate training or over a short period as high-interval training. Everyone can choose the type of training that suits them best. In general, you can achieve the best results for you body by using both training methods," encourages Sjöros.

What If We Said Chores And Allowance Should Have No Bearing On One Another? | You Need a Budget
We give them money—an allowance, totally independent of chores—so they can learn how to manage money.
We used to attach commissions to different jobs. When we ran into some quality control issues, then we were paying based on how well your chores were done, how few times we had to ask you to do them, or whether or not Mom was in a good mood when payment came due. It was impossible to be consistent. Not to mention it felt like anytime we asked them to do something they were expecting to get paid. The balance was all off.
Now, we pay our kids an allowance every week. It is the same amount, every single time. It has nothing to do with chores or behavior. You just get it.
Part of me still reacts a little bit like, “No! That’s not right! You don’t just get money. What are we teaching these kids if you just get money automatically for breathing?” But we are very disciplined when it comes to chores.
Work Isn’t Just About Money
We’re teaching them to work. Everyone does their chores, everyone is contributing to the family. This isn’t something you get paid for. You don’t get an extra gold star. It is just what is expected. It’s just a part of being in our family.
Money Management Must Be Taught
And we’re teaching them to manage their money. The whole point of the allowance is to let them experience holding money, handling money, losing money, saving money—managing money. It takes practice. You must battle with your own emotions, weigh your own priorities, experience the consequences. The allowance provides valuable practice.

Grattis Prairie! | Klassiker
Nissan Prairie var en klar föregångare när den presenterades i Japan 1981; Strax över fyra meter lång, formad som en kombi men försedd med praktiska skjutdörrar bak och tack vare den höga och breda karossen rymlig som en minibuss.

I standardutförande var Prairie femsitsig men en extra sätesrad längst bak gick att beställa.

Prairie M10 var framhjulsdriven och knappast övermotoriserad med sin 1,5-liters 88-hästarsmotor, senare kom fler motoralternativ och inkopplingsbar fyrhjulsdrift som tillval.

PPTP vs L2TP vs OpenVPN vs SSTP vs IKEv2 - BestVPN.com
With Edward Snowden’s shocking revelations that the NSA has for years been working to crack and subvert VPN encryption technologies, together with the fact that it is becoming increasingly obvious that most such technologies have been developed and certified by the US government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and may therefore be considered suspect, we have decided it is time to revisit and update this popular article.

We will start with a rundown of the major differences between the different VPN protocols and how they affect you, before looking in more detail at the key concepts involved in cryptography, and how the NSA’s assault on encryption standards affects VPN users.

The discussion below is rather technical, and although I have made every effort to make it as approachable as possible, you may prefer to just jump to the end of the article for a quick summary.
