A lot of weight gain in this country is attributed to something called "stress eating." So what if we had a device that could measure that - and help to prevent it? Well, maybe we do. Ladies, it could be your bra. I've got details in this week's News For Nerds.
Also, wanna know how to make yourself look more attractive in a photograph? I can tell you if you click the link.
And, as a bonus, I have a pee chart. Yes, a pee chart. You'll want to see it, because your pee is a window into your health. Oh, yes it is.
I spent back-to-back weeks with two luxury compact sport sedans from Lexus, starting with the IS350, followed by its feisty little brother, the IS250. Both are available with rear-wheel drive, but my test models came with all-wheel-drive.
I knew that the brands had been redesigned for 2014, but I didn't appreciate those minor changes until I got my first glimpses. Both cars are beautiful to look at, although I'll give more of a nod to the 250; its lines are of the eye-catching variety, with a swept-back look that's appealing to (ahem) seasoned guys like me.
But make no mistake: Lexus has always - and probably WILL always - put the emphasis on the luxury end of the "luxury sport sedan" equation. Yes, the cars have some oomph, but they don't beat out some of their comparable rivals in the sports-handling department. For comparison sake, I would recommend looking at the vaunted BMW 3-series (the reigning champ in most enthusiasts' minds), as well as the Audi A4 and the Mercedes C-Class.Don't get me wrong, the IS250 and IS350 are terrific cars, with plenty of thrills to offer.
For this year's redesign, the engineers worked a bit on the ride (which is improved) and the interior space (which has expanded). Powered by 2.5-liter V6, the 250 will leave the starting blocks with a little over 200 horses, while the bigger sib 350 sports a 3.5-liter V6 with 306 horsepower. Both cars offer smooth and powerful acceleration and fine handling. Personally (and perhaps it was because of the overall feel in the cockpit), I enjoyed the ride of the IS250 a little more.
We've always thought that a quiet, relaxing weekend was the best thing for us. Well, not so. In fact, the more you can do on a weekend, the better. At least as far as your brain (and your attitude) is concerned. I have details this week in the link.
And you might've heard about sleep apnea, but it's possible that you suffer from Email Apnea. In fact, I think it just happened to me while I was typing this . . .
Plus, high school students build an actual satellite, and a new animated video explains the mystery behind "silent but deadly" flatulence. (See, not everything on News For Nerds is highbrow.)
It wasn’t all that long ago that hybrids were new and different, which often brought on a polarizing effect. Early believers heard snickers - or worse - about them, and for a while there was an “us against them” feel about the whole segment.
That seems to be rapidly disappearing. Hybrids not only have gained a toehold in the market, they’re picking up traction in upscale models. But the successful early players continue to shine, including Toyota, whose Prius line acted as the advance foot soldier in the assault on market share.
Benefitting from those early forays into the technology is the Camry, an already hugely popular vehicle - in fact, second only to Ford’s F-150 in 2012 sales. The new Camry hybrid doesn’t change much after last year’s redesign, but it didn’t need to. Instead, Toyota added a few convenience features.
Let’s get the disclaimer out of the way: I’ve driven an Infiniti as my personal car for about three years - and I’ve enjoyed it quite a bit.
Last year the luxury brand unveiled a hybrid version of their M series, and it received glowing reviews. Now in their second year with it, the designers at Infiniti must’ve decided not to mess too much with a good thing. There are some cosmetic changes to the M hybrid, but not much.
Boys often act out their aggression physically, while girls might tend to be socially mean to each other. Why is that? Well, one psychologist thinks women actually evolved to be catty. I've got the story this week.
Also, we're now at the point that an algorithm can predict if you're going to break up . . . based on your Facebook usage. This is getting scary.
And some terrific video this week, including an explanation for why love makes us feel the way we do, an app that helps a marching band create insanely-cool choreography, and self-driving cars that might save your life.
I spent some time wondering how best to describe the new Forester, and I finally realized that it’s like dating and marriage. Be patient, the analogy will make sense in a moment.
We all remember the hot girl/guy in high school or college, the one that everyone ogled and dreamed about. Yet too often these gods turned out to be more trouble than they were worth. Meanwhile, your best friend married the guy/girl who wasn’t all that flashy, and yet they’ve been happily married - and loving life - for years and years.
Are you jealous of your friends who can sleep for twelve hours, when you can barely manage six? Well, don't be. Turns out THEY are the ones who are at the most risk for certain health problems. I have details.
Plus, think back to your first science project in school. Now imagine that it was selected to go to the International Space Station. That dream has come true for a 6th grade boy in Colorado. The link is below.
And your quickies this week include: Knocking on wood actually works (sorta); pictures of never-before-seen creatures that were recently discovered (and some of them are w-e-i-r-d); and some of the coolest robot video you'll see. You gotta check it out.
