25/5 method

I am currently studying for my chemistry test tomorrow, along with some poetry analyzing for Swedish literature.

I have been sitting like this for a couple of hours now. Want to know how I keep my motivation and every up? Well it’s easy.

I use the method where I study for 25 minutes before resting for 5.

1. Put your phone in flight mode and set an alarm for 25 minutes.

2. Study during the 25 minutes. Don’t eat.

3. When 25 minutes have passed you’re allowed to eat, walk around, check your phone - do whatever you want for 5 minutes.

4. Start over again.

A research showed that 25 minutes is the maximum amount of time you can spend studying and actually keep focus. A 5 minute break is then enough before you can study for 25 minutes again. I love this method. Because 25 minutes is rather short and so I know I only have to focus and study for 25 minutes before I can take a break.

I strongly recommend this. It makes it possible to study for hours without getting too tired or unfocused. Good luck on your studying!

And can you tell us more about Garmadon in this AU? And what's his backstory in this AU? And if he was in this AU somewhere for a long time sent or not?

Garmadon, plain and simple, is the school band director. He started out at the school as the assistant football coach with Chen. He very quickly fell in love with the English teacher/librarian Misako, and they now have 3 kids (I know I kept saying I wasn’t going to include OCs but I couldn’t resist). Garmadon took the job of band director when it was offered to him, much to the disapproval of Chen, and has been there ever since. He could definitely switch to a bigger or better school, but he loves the band program he already manages and wouldn’t leave for the world.


Today is my orientation for bariatric weightloss surgery. I’ve already lost 4 pounds and in 2 weeks I’ll have my physical and start seeing the dieticians. In roughly 6-7 months I should have the surgery.

Weird Feeling: when ever I’m in a place that large people meet like OA or weight management programs such as this one, my size is always strikingly obvious to me.

I’m a good 200 pds heavier than everyone in the room. I’m usually use to it, but for some reason… It’s more glaringly obvious to me when I’m with other fat people.

The orientation was a bit overwhelming. This is going to be a huge change in my life.

Im so very much ready for it, but it’s still intimidating.

How Apple makes sure the Apple Watch doesn't harm your skin

An unusual video published on Thursday looks into a funny practice at Apple: it makes fake human sweat so it can test its products in real-world conditions, like when things get a little icky. 

“We use fake human sweat,” Art Fong, green chemistry program manager at Apple, says in the video. “We want to mimic actual use conditions, but we’re not going to go around collecting sweat from human employees." 

So by testing products like Apple Watch bands in this fake sweat, Apple can ensure that they won’t cause a negative reaction either from humans or the environment. 

Previously, users who have worn fitness trackers and smartwatches made by Fitbit and Jawbone have said that their wristbands have given them rashes. 

When the Apple Watch first came out, there were some scattered reports that it could irritate skin, too, but anything worn closely to the body for long periods of time can cause irritation. 

This clip is one of four new videos Apple released to commemorate Earth Day. All four were illustrated by James Blagden, who is best known for his fantastic video called ”Dock Ellis & the LSD No-No.“

5 Safety Precautions to Take Before You Exercise

Diabetes is complex. Don’t rely on advice from the “experts” at your local gym. (HEALTH/ISTOCKPHOTO)

Exercise is safe-and highly recommended-for most people with type 2 diabetes, including those with complications. It’s an important tool that will help you lower blood sugar (along with diet and medication) and lose weight if you need to do so.

However, check with your health-care provider before starting an exercise program. There are some type 2 diabetes complications, such as heart disease, retinopathy, and neuropathy, that may require fine-tuning of your exercise program.

“A few precautions would allow almost anyone with diabetes to exercise,” says Gerald Bernstein, MD, director of the diabetes management program at the Gerald J. Friedman Diabetes Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. You should always get approval from your doctor, he adds, and you may also need to take a stress test before starting an exercise program.

Don’t rely on the “experts” at the local gym for advice on what is safe, says Jacqueline Shahar, a certified diabetes educator and manager of the exercise physiology department at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.

“Club managers who don’t know about diabetes complications are probably not able to advise you on what is safe for any complications you might have,” she says. “Your risk, depending on complications, can include bleeding from the eye, increases in high blood pressure, falling (because the nerves in your feet may be numb), and wounds that could become infected if your socks and shoes don’t fit well and feel comfortable.”

“I definitely recommend to meet with a certified diabetes educator to get an activity plan that is tailored to your diabetes complications or other medical issues you may have,” Shahar adds.

She recommends the following:

  1. Wear your medical identification or other ID.
  2. Always carry food or glucose tablets so that you’ll be ready to treat hypoglycemia (low blood sugar is more common if you are taking insulin or certain oral medications).
  3. Carry your glucose meter with you and check your blood glucose before and after you exercise. If you’ll be exercising for more than an hour, check your blood glucose at regular intervals during your workout. You may need snacks before you finish. You should also be sure to check after you finish, as hypoglycemia can occur up to five hours after exercise.
  4. Be sure to wear socks and sneakers that are comfortable and fit well to help prevent foot irritation. And after you exercise, check your feet for blisters, sores, and cuts. Left unattended, foot irritations can lead to a serious infection.
  5. Drink plenty of fluids during your exercise regimen; dehydration can cause your blood sugar levels to rise.

Tesla withdraws lawsuit against former Autopilot head, gets $100k in settlement
Tesla has withdrawn the scathing lawsuit it filed against Sterling Anderson, the former program manager of its Autopilot team, and the company he founded with former Google exec Chris Urmson, Aurora Innovation. According to a settlement agreement, Aurora will pay Tesla $100,000 (a paltry sum for a billion-dollar company like Tesla) and allow Tesla to hire an independent auditor to scour Aurora’s systems for confidential Tesla information, which would then be destroyed or returned to Tesla.
