1. A new study looked at whether America’s thirst for soda speeds up how the body’s cells age.
Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco used a sample of 5300 healthy adults. Dr. Elissa Epel worked on the study for 5 years.
“We think we can get away with drinking lots of soda as long as we are not gaining weight, but this suggests that there is an invisible pathway that leads to accelerated aging, regardless of weight,” said Dr. Epel.
Epel’s team discovered that in people who drank more sugar-sweetened beverages, the ends of their chromosomes, known as telomeres, were shorter.
The shorter the telomere, the less a cell can regenerate thus aging the body, and raising the risk of disease and early death.
“This finding is alarming because it suggest that soda may be aging us, in ways we are not even aware of,” said Dr. Epel.
Researchers found no link in cell aging, however, when drinking diet sodas and fruit juices.

My beautiful Grandson Jayden is 16 today
He is thoughtful, gracious, funny, and more I could say
That precious little boy has become a rising star
He can’t wait to get his license and drive the car
Now that is an experience all of its own
Teaching him to drive, my nerves are blown
For some reason we stay too close to the road side
Letter boxes whizz past my window, it’s a kinda jerky ride
Anyhow he is not too bad
When he goes and gets lessons I will be glad
He has become a great surfer, attacks any waves
He has become fearless, a pleasure to watch as I do many days
My heart fills with pride as I watch him grow
Into the person he has become, his future bright I know
Lord where did that time, those years go, they sped away
It’s hard to believe he is 16 years old today

The e-Sportlimousine, built by the German company Quant, runs on an electrolyte flow cell power system made by NanoFlowcell that generates a staggering 920 horsepower, goes 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds, and propels the car to a top speed of 217.5 mph!
You are driving and about to hit something about to be hit.
I know about this one as I have hit a few Kangaroo’s in my time.
Jeff Payne a former professional race car driver and the CEO of the non-profit firm “Drivers edge” in Las Vegas.
The three biggest objects you are likely to hit on the road is another vehicle, debris, and wildlife.
Here is advised to either avoid the accident or minimize your damage.
a. ESP – Use it. Be ready for the unexpected especially when you sense the traffic is erratic. If the car in front slams on his brakes look to see if the right lane is clear and move over. At least maneuver your vehicle to minimize the impact.
Your brain should be predicting what the surrounding drivers will do. Especially if everyone is driving like mad men. If you are totally focused you will never be distracted. The same goes for motorcycles.
b. Embrace smooth and cool – The first instinct when something appears in front of us is to hit the brakes and swerve – No No No – not a good idea. sudden moves could cause you to overcorrect lose control and make the situation worse.
c Minimize the impact. – If you cannot avoid impact, alter it. If you are the only one in the car try to angle it so the front passenger side takes the hit. If you have someone else in the car angle it so you take the hit on your side.
d. Focus on the main event. – If you come upon an object in your lane do not fixate on it. Your eyes act as your guide, if something falls off the back of a truck and you stare at it, you will for sure hit it. Look for an escape route and that is where the car will go.
e. Hit the gas – The only time you will want to accelerate is when you are about to hit a large animal. If you slam your brakes on before, say hitting a deer the front end of your car will dip and this makes it more likely that the animal will fly up over your hood and come through the windshield. Speeding up before you hit will make the front end rise and confine it to the bumper.
Aim for the rear end. If an animal bolts it does not bolt backwards. You may miss it or at the most graze it. In that case not too much damage will be done.
