    Life/ youth extension

    Very interesting research. So it seems that exercise does feck all to increase your life expectancy: "While diet and lifestyle are a significant factor in longevity, Horvath surprisingly found that regular exercise doesn't add more than a few months to your life" "Aging eight or more years faster than your calendar age equates to twice the typical risk of dying, while aging seven years slower is associated with half the risk of death, Horvath says. His lab has developed a new version that is such a precise life span predictor they named it after the Grim Reaper: DNAm GrimAge. The epigenetic clock is more accurate the younger a person is. It’s especially inaccurate for the very old." "A few likely contenders are totally unsurprising. Eating a healthy diet including lots of vegetables and fish is associated with slower epigenetic aging. Feel older when you’re sleep deprived? It’s probably not a coincidence. Horvath has shown that people with insomnia are more likely to show accelerated epigenetic aging. “Everything you associate with a healthy lifestyle does relate to the new biomarkers in the expected way, which is a boring result, but it’s scientifically very exciting,”

    A glimpse of the youth of today

    The poet Laureate Seamus Heaney was a fan: "Seamus Heaney, one of the leading figures in modern poetry, praised the lyrical talents of the rapper Eminem yesterday. The Northern Irish poet, a guest of the school, was asked by journalists whether there was a figure in popular culture who aroused interest in poetry and lyrics in the way that Bob Dylan and John Lennon did during the 1960s and 1970s. The Nobel Laureate said: "There is this guy Eminem. He has created a sense of what is possible. He has sent a voltage around a generation. He has done this not just through his subversive attitude but also his verbal energy."

    Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!

    I hope so too. If there is something going on in the background it must be big. If "Have I got News" this week doesn't mention Trump then there has to be.

    Could be because they have fired absolutely everything at him and hasn't made a dent? Fatigue syndrome.

    Very impressive by Hope there, and what age was he when filming that? He lived to 100. Maybe dancing is the elixir of life.

    Effortless, doubt any actor today would get insurance to try that.
