1.) Ladies, does it seem that your husband or boyfriend loses weight faster than you do? It’s not in your head as researchers have found that it is true, for several reasons. Men are better at ignoring temptations and don’t eat comfort food under stress. Plus, men have less of a history of dieting, and therefore less failure. Plus, the extra muscle a man has speeds up metabolism. The same study show when men and women diet at the same time, men tend to be more focused and less distracted. They also don't get derailed by life events.
2.) The new iPhone will be in the hands of millions of people around the planet later this month. If you’ve ever wondered how the phones get from China to the United States and other countries, thank Boeing. FedEx ships Apple handsets from China to their main hub in Memphis using Boeing 777s. Those big planes can carry about 450,000 iPhones. The 777s can make that trip in 15 hours without having to stop to refuel. The planes cost about $242,000 to charter, with fuel accounting for more than half that expense.
3.) What’s the new natural sunscreen? How about the vegetable that the first President Bush didn’t like and refused to eat? Researchers at the University of Arizona and Johns Hopkins University are testing rubbing broccoli on your skin to reduce the risk of skin cancer. Broccoli contains a compound called sulforaphane, which prohibits cancer-causing pathways and activates chemoprotective genes for a one-two cancer-preventing punch. They are testing a broccoli solution on skin to see if the compound can effectively block simulated sunlight.
