No matter how hard you try, you cannot avoid seeing those headlines about people who think they know the secret to finding the holy grail of success, money and happiness. I do not like sweeping statements about how to do things. You just cannot easily generalize things. One of the articles that made me laugh was “How Ashton Kutcher manages his email”.

There have been a ton of articles and stories in the past few months about how bad Social Media & Tech is bad for you. Even the creators of some Social Media platforms and tech companies do not allow their own kids use their own social media platform and tech gadgets. Well, there's a hint for you: it is kids.

Everyone breathes. Breathing is the process of taking air into and expelling it from the lungs. Once blood has been oxygenated in the lungs it travels back to the heart and is then pumped around the body. The blood delivers its oxygen and collects the carbon dioxide, carrying it back to the lungs where it will be exhaled again. The air we breathe in contains approximately 21% oxygen and 0.04% carbon dioxide, whereas air that leaves the body contains approximately 15% oxygen and 4% carbon dioxide. Thus, the air we exhale contains 100 times more carbon dioxide and 6% less oxygen than the air we inhale. (Source: Anatomy & Physiology, Edition 5, Louise Tucker)Read More
