These muscles work hard but don't carry, lift or move the body. Learning to exercise and relax these muscles can take years off your look, reduce headaches and bring ease to your body and mind. Though it's easy to forget about them, they're visible to everyone you meet. I'm talking about facial muscles. So while you keep your body in shape, make sure to include your face. The facial muscles respond to emotions and thoughts more so than other voluntary muscles in the body.
You've seen ominous-looking black charcoal products in skin care and even dental products. Activated charcoal has gotten a lot of media attention, but some experts aren’t convinced it lives up to expectations.
Exposing regular charcoal to high temperatures and a gas, such as oxygen makes it develop more pores, turning it into "activated charcoal." Those pores, plus the carbon in it, attract substances and soak them up like a sponge. Doctors use activated charcoal to remove toxins from people who have overdosed, but it might have some beauty uses, too.

Nestled away among the badlands of New Mexico, 28 miles north of Santa Fe, sits the little village of Chimayo. This community of artists, chile farmers and deeply religious people live in an oasis of fertile soil surrounded by the dry high desert of Northern New Mexico. Chimayo ("tsi-mayoh") is named after one of the four hills in that area that were sacred to the Tewa Pueblo Indians, and it is one of the most important Catholic pilgrimages in the United States.
Beets are a common sweetening ingredient in the juices you'll find at most health food stores, but a recent study found another reason to drink the bright red juice: It has anti-aging benefits.
Researchers at Wake Forest University knew that exercise has positive anti-aging effects on the brain, and were looking for ways to increase those benefits.

For many startups, achieving meaningful growth — the kind that gets the attention of investors and potential buyers — means having the right tools. While larger companies can usually afford to build their own custom solutions, smaller businesses tend to rely on outside vendors. Fortunately, plenty of companies out there cater to the specific needs of smaller enterprises and early-stage startups, and the tools they provide are often as affordable as they are effective.

Are you a leader who spends a lot of time managing people, projects and goals? Or are you the one who drives and motivates others yet are not officially recognized as a leader? Everyone — from long-tenured employees with institutional knowledge to entrepreneurs, small business owners and those new or returning to the workforce — often performs a variety of roles to address the needs of the organization. But who is a leader and who is a manager? Here are three ways to tell.

Email is one of the most affordable and simplest way for business owners to communicate with their customers. One of the biggest problems of using email as a marketing tool is the inability to cut through the clutter of the multitude of other emails in customers' inboxes. How do you get your readers to actually open, read and take an action upon receiving your email?
Not very long ago, promoting a brand was a drastically different task from what we know today. Thanks to the internet, over 40 percent of the world’s population is logging on to a computer and using that tool to gather information. As a result, the way in which we define competition has changed. Businesses today must go to great lengths to market their brands to stand out in a vastly overpopulated market.

Tumor angiogenesis is an important link in the process of tumor growth and metastasis. A number of substances with an anti-angiogenic activity has been described, but their efficiency remains low. Many researchers believe that a better therapeutic effect could be achieved using a cocktail of several anti-angiogenic agents, having different points of action. A lot of synthetic and natural products of plant and animal origin have anti-tumor and anti-angiogenic properties.
As educators, we understand conceptually how failure can help students learn, but do we really believe it? I think if we did, we might build for failure — in a significant way — into the scope and sequence of our curriculum. (It's true that state testing season is upon us and the word failure is hardly permissible right now but let's talk about it anyway.) What would our classrooms perhaps look like if we were to allow for more failure, even embrace it?
Imagine you're playing speed chess. With a blindfold. With multiple games going at once.
At the 2015 Sohn conference, the highest-ranked chess player in history, Magnus Carlsen did exactly this, and it's a feat to behold. Carlsen quickly makes his moves (navigating 60,000-plu possible chess moves in his mind) while his opponents flounder. Carlsen's first win is a checkmate. His second is a resignation. The final opponent loses on time! If you're like me, when you see feats like this, you might wonder how — and what specifically — you can learn from it beyond simply being impressed. You can use the same principle that Carlsen uses to master chess, to master your field and become more successful. How is that possible? The short answer is chunking.
