  1. From her take on the Batman franchise, to Charles Babbage’s lack of energy source for his computer, Laura Stack had me shaking my head the entire time; until this little tidbit in the very last paragraph:
    “That’s a simple action you can marry to the thought, until you have time to consider it further.”

    I feel sorry for Dr. David Ludwig, having to put up with an interview by a person committed to getting a cutting-edge tag-line to sell the article. Oh well. Hopefully his book sells.

    I dunno. Just because a smart-phone app can collect data like AirportXP, doesn’t mean that the data will mean anything of consequence. I clicked through from the Economist to Globe News Wire to Mobile XP – they are trying to provide solid evidence….but….

    • I loved Laura Stack’s article! I thought the idea of acting on a lot of ideas in order to give them each a chance was really interesting. It’s a little bit what I seek to do with writing down any to-do that occurs to me, so I can get it out of my brain.

      The David Ludwig interview with the NYT is EXTREMELY basic and dumbed down. But, I would argue that so many Americans don’t comprehend basic tenets of nutrition and health that it probably needs to be so :(

  2. I have a difficult time with jet lag on international trips. I saved the jet lag link to share with some of my friends. I love your links! I look forward to this post every week.

    • Awww, thanks Marla – I’m so glad you like it! As you can probably tell, I get a lot of links from your great roundup too :)
