lumosity brain games fun gaming









Workouts rely on your brain's innate neuroplasticity, or its ability to change and adapt.


Watch out for your free trial, coming soon.

Lumosity does improve your


Speed
Memory
Attention
Flexibility
Problem Solving


But within those areas it does test your

Information processing and vizualization

and spatial orientation

as well as

working memory, spatial recall , face-name recall and

divided attention, selective attention and timing and field of view

verbal fluency , task switching, response inhibition and

numerical calculation, planning, quantitative reasoning, logical reasoning

if you find these names daunting, there will be games there that you enjoy, accompanied by sounds and range from easy to difficult, but once you get the hang of them you'll love the imagery and quaintness, as you build robots, drive trains, catch animals and so much more.

Whatevr you do, have fun, and your own brain will take care of the rest as you are challenged by your own improvement in your own scores, don't worry about what others do, just do what you like, choose the games and styles that appeal and you'll find there is more to life than just the games you are familiar with.



Keep your eyes open for your free trial, it'll arrive here in due course and all of it scientifically based, all you need do is choose what you like and play on.

Faster Ways to Burn Fat

6 Ways to Burn Fat Faster (No Running Needed!)
Take your walk to new calorie-burning heights with these little tweaks



1. Go up (and down).

Do 15 minutes of a 35-minute walk on hills, not flat ground, and you'll burn close to 100 extra calories, according to walking guru Mark Fenton, author of The Complete Guide to Walking: For Health, Weight Loss, and Fitness. Not only will walking up and down hills burn more calories, but it can also help sculpt your butt. If you're on a treadmill, hike your incline 15% for 15 minutes of your walk (break it up by raising the incline for a few minutes, then lowering it, then putting it back up again).

2. Make it a game.

Really pick up the pace for 30 seconds every time you see a dog, a mailbox, a red car, or someone sipping coffee. Making a game of it can keep your walks more interesting and make you faster over time. Every time you speed up, you'll burn more calories. Then, let your pace go back to normal (but no slower than that) while you catch your breath. Tip: When you put on your short bursts of speed, make sure that your steps are faster, but not smaller. Next week, try making the faster parts 5 seconds longer. Keep at it.

3. Get (a little) speedy.

If you're walking 20-minute miles, make it your goal this week to do one 19-minute mile each time you walk. Even if you go faster for just 1 mile of your 3-mile circuit, you're making progress. Work up to 19 minutes for each mile of your workout. Once you can do that, try doing 1 mile at 18 minutes.

4. Do 5 minutes more, here and there.

This week, either add 5 minutes to three walks, or add a 15-minute mile to one walk. Your choice. If you weigh 150 pounds, that small investment of time can nix almost 90 additional calories (those are the chocolate kisses you ate last night). Take a longer loop back home, or reset your treadmill timer. Just keep up the pace; if you walk slower when you walk longer, your additional calorie burn won't add up to much -- if it moves the needle at all.

5. Add music.

In one study, people who worked out to up-tempo tunes covered 11% more ground -- without even feeling like they did anything extra. So try walking to music with a makes-you-want-to-move beat -- it can give you that lift you need to walk a little faster. Anyone ready for "Rock That Body" by the Black Eyed Peas?

6. Go Nordic.

You can burn 20% more calories just by adding springy fitness poles to your walks -- you know, those long poles you see some walkers using that look like they were borrowed from Nordic skiers. Even though you're doing more when you use poles (working your arms, walking taller), your workout might actually feel easier, as the poles help propel you forward.

Where is the money?

September 15th 2014 21:30

movies ads blogging money rewards








I know that many of you will not realize that Jon arranged a special deal for movie blogs, giving them a much higher chance of collecting the dough.

That still has not changed, just check out the movie ads and compare with the rest of us, sitting like pillars of no hope, out in the wilderness and stuck with the dregs and repetively so, not much chance of money for us.

If you are of a different opinion, please let us know by leaving your comments.

The way to go, write up the movies, not for me, there are very few movies I see and even fewer that I like.

You don't need much in the way of credentials to write about the movies, just gabble on, it's easy and you'll get more than your fair share of the rewards, such as they are nowadays.

But will they 'fess up? Not on your life, they like their privileged state.

Ho Hum!
