What do American Christmas Meals Have To do with X-Men’s Wolverine, Andy Murray, Tour de France Cyclists and Arctic Explorers

Christmas is around the corner and what is more related to this holiday if not food. Just lots and lots of it. foodpanda (www.foodpanda.ph) a mobile and online food ordering marketplace, estimated and matched the sum of food that is actually eaten in just one meal.

In the 13th Century, the medieval occasion ran for 12 days, with lavish feasts every day. Today, an excessive American Christmas meal for just one day means food compositions that equal a 6,000 calories consumption for the average person. This is equivalent to eating 117 biscuits, or 42 bananas, or 23 and a half hamburgers- to name a few.

6,000 calories a day is the amount that Hugh Jackman was consuming to match his role in Darren Aronovsky’s Wolverine film, matching the sum total of what Andy Murray, British number 1 tennis player, eats daily. That is identical to the amount that Olympic biathletes need for their training, Tour de France cyclists to sustain a day’s race and Arctic explorers to endure a day on the ice.

Sleep is key to success

The next time you tell yourself that you’ll sleep when you’re dead, realize that you’re making a decision that can make that day come much sooner. Pushing late into the night is a health and productivity killer.

According to the Division of Sleep Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, the short-term productivity gains from skipping sleep to work are quickly washed away by the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation on your mood, ability to focus, and access to higher-level brain functions for days to come. The negative effects of sleep deprivation are so great that people who are drunk outperform those lacking sleep.

Why You Need Adequate Sleep to Perform

We’ve always known that sleep is good for your brain, but new research from the University of Rochester provides the first direct evidence for why your brain cells need you to sleep (and sleep the right way—more on that later). The study found that when you sleep your brain removes toxic proteins from its neurons that are by-products of neural activity when you’re awake. Unfortunately, your brain can remove them adequately only while you’re asleep. So when you don’t get enough sleep, the toxic proteins remain in your brain cells, wreaking havoc by impairing your ability to think—something no amount of caffeine can fix.

TheFlying Stars MethodofFengShui is one of the oldest and most accurate system in FengShui practice. According to the Flying Star technique you can divide your home’s floor planinto nine energy “sectors”. Each sector, depending on which direction it is located,contains a different type of energy that is eithervery good, good, moderate, bad or very bad. By figuring out where the “good” and “bad” sectors of your home lie, you can see which room or part of the house contains the most auspicious energy.
By activating the luck of your most auspicious sector, you can obtain all the benefits of prosperity, success and happiness.
By knowing where the unlucky sectors are, you can avoid misfortune, illness and even death by applying one of the Five Element cures that can dispelor neutralize the bad luck.

“K” celebrates a number of firsts for Karylle – joining a contest and collaborating with a cousin-rapper.

“I’ve never ever joined a contest before, but it was worth it because I got to sing a beautiful song – Lara Maigue’s ‘Sa ‘yo Na Lang Ako,’ which everyone loves,” expresses K. “I am also thrilled big time that I got to collaborate with one of my favorite rappers – my cousin Dash Calzado.”

The singer-actress also thanks Kiko Salazar for turning an unfinished “Kiss You” to complete song, and for contributing “Kapiling Kita.”

Karylle adds, “This album is extra special because of a million reasons. It was a reunion with my first two producers Ito Rapadas, who produced ‘Sa’Yo Nalang Ako’ and DJ MOD, who remixed ‘Bad Boys.’”
