https://www.youtube.com/embed/mMwn5AaBBh0 Eat right, exercise, don’t watch too much TV, keep your brain healthy, don’t smoke, don’t drink too much, don’t drink too little… advice for prolonging life is everywhere, but maybe you’re not living wrong, you’re just living in the wrong place. Sup cotton-top wannabes, Trace here for DNews. Getting older is inevitable and in some places the drudgery of aging is as apparent as grey clouds rolling over a sunny day, but that’s not always the case. In his 2011 book, “The Blue Zones” Dan Buettner used census data to find the regions of the world where people live the longest — Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Loma Linda, California; the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica… he called these areas Blue Zones. Living in each of these “zones” have mysterious benefits: Okinawa boasts the longest disability-free life-expectancy, and Nicoya Peninsula residents have four-times the chance of reaching age 90 than the…

Well, now I’m going to tell you something you can do with fractions that’s really easy. No, no… not juggling fractions. [circus music] Although that is pretty easy… for me. I’m talking about something even easier than that. I’m talking about multiplying fractions.Multiplying fractions is super easy. In fact it’s easier than adding fractions, and that’s why we’re going to learn it first. The reason it’s easier is because fractions are really just division problems. And multiplication and division get along much better than addition and division. Now since fractions are division, that means if I have the problem one-fourth times two-thirds, it’s the same as the problem: 1 divided by 4 times 2 divided by 3. That means I’ve got both multiplication and division in the same problem. And because they get along…

Hey there working stiffs, Trace here for DNews! Like many of you out there, I have a full-time job. This. And I generally put in 40 hours a week, or a lot more. But new research out of Australia suggests that I may be putting my health at risk. The study published in the journal Social Science & Medicine sampled roughly 3,800 men and 4,000 women to get an idea of how working for a long time would affect their health. They found that on average, working more than 39 hours per week led to a decline in mental health. Researchers think this is because it gives you less time to eat healthy meals and to take care of yourself.And there were actually pretty…
