A new crop of skin-care products promising to give the skin a glimmer — thanks to real flecks of glitter — have recently popped up, and honestly, I'm a little disconcerted. The new launches, face masks made for hydrating and firming skin, are infused with hefty chunks of the shimmery, light-reflecting particles made famous in elementary school art class — but for what reason? Sure, they're neat and marketable as hell (/#Instabait). But, the real question is: Are they practical? In the words of American Idol judge Randy Jackson, "It's going to be a no from me, dawg."

Starting at 25, most women start thinking about anti-aging. This is the age when beauty campaigns start targeting this journey (let's face it, for most of us it's a journey that lasts most of our lives). But is this a one-lane journey? Does one approach really work or do beauty companies basically sell us hope in a jar? According to Forbes Magazine, the beauty industry is currently amassing more than $445 billion a year, so millions are spending money on the latest, trendy "miracle" creams, gels and masks. However, there's also a movement focused on a more holistic approach.

Ketosis is a metabolic state in which most of the body's energy supply comes from ketones (sometimes known as "fractured fats") found in blood plasma. This is very different to the state of glycolysis in which plasma glucose (carbohydrates) provides most of the body's energy needs.
Despite rumblings around the internet, ketosis is absolutely a natural state for the body to be in, when it is almost completely fueled by ketones. Without a doubt, ketosis is a normal metabolic state during fasting or when a person is on a very strict low-carbohydrate diet, which is known also as a "ketogenic diet."

Taking on a leadership role is a balancing act that becomes more refined as your experience grows. Not every employee or company is the same, and what is expected by one employer differs from another, including the work environment.

Excoriation (skin-picking) disorder (SPD) shares symptomology with other obsessive-compulsive and related disorders. Few studies, however, have examined the neurological profile of patients with SPD. This study examined differences in cortical thickness and basal ganglia structural volumes between 20 individuals with SPD and 16 healthy controls using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Teaching is impossibly complex.
Unless you were coldly calculated and level-headed as, there is no way to be the teacher so many begin their career striving to be. You will simply never be able to fulfill everything that each learner needs, no matter how hard you work, how much you read, and how persistently you collaborate.
That's not meant to be discouraging, but empowering. Start with what's important, what is in your reach, and what you can do, and begin your Sisyphean push from there.
Here are five simple ideas that can transform your teaching. The post is intentionally brief, meant only to get you thinking and perhaps start a conversation in your PLN.
If you've had the pleasure of reading bedtime books to young children, you've observed one of the reasons why narratives are so compelling. During their childhood, my daughters wanted to hear the same book, Goodnight Moon, over and over: Even after dozens of readings, they continued to excitedly predict what would be on the next page and to take great pleasure in being right.
That childhood desire of children — wanting to hear books read aloud and repeatedly requesting those few they know well enough to predict — encompasses powerful brain drives that become memory enhancers.
