Georgia Brain Train Group - A Commuter Rail, passenger train, Atlanta rail, college connector rail
Topic: Health and Wellness 2:52 pm EDT, Sep 16, 2008

Thanks for visiting the Georgia Brain Train website. This site will be an organizing point on the web to help educate those interested in the exciting developments in commuter rail for the Northeast Metro Atlanta area. We urge you to click the link on our site to read about recent public opinion surveys on passenger rail. Our goal as an organization is to educate the public about the benefits of passenger rail in the northeastern metro suburbs.

The proposal to connect Athens through Oconee, Barrow, Gwinnett and DeKalb Counties to Midtown and Downtown Atlanta is gaining momentum and people need to understand the positive impact it will have on our overall region.

Is Nintendo's Wii Really Good Exercise?
Topic: Health and Wellness 1:47 am EDT, Sep  9, 2008

It seems that while the Wii's boxing game isn't vigorous enough to provide a comprehensive cardiovascular workout, it can play a role in maintaining or losing body weight, especially for someone starting from a lower level of fitness.

"If they're looking for cardiovascular fitness, I'd advise them to do something else because it's really not intense enough," White said. "But if they're just looking to lose weight, it's a good way to get started. It can also be a gateway to other things, and may get people interested in the actual sports themselves too."

The most energetic workout of the three trials was the boxercise video, while walking provided less exercise than the Wii.

But White's report, which he's considering submitting for publishing, noted something interesting: study participants who were gamers to begin with had a lower level of perceived exertion playing Wii boxing. In other words, it felt less like exercise because they were enjoying it more.

I guess I need a HR monitor to know how many calories I am burning during a 2 hour Wii boxing marathon.

Lose weight by playing Wii Sports - Joystiq
Topic: Health and Wellness 9:16 pm EDT, Sep  8, 2008

Rocky-inspired Philadelphian hey_suburbia decided to put Wii Sports to the diet test back in early December. The idea was to see if the game could help him shed unwanted pounds when played with full, exaggerated movements. He continued his normal activity and eating habits only adding 30 minutes of Wii Sports to his daily routine. The results after six weeks? He lost 9 pounds.

I am moving back to Atlanta, and am concerned about gaining weight now that I won't be surfing often. Wii Boxing could be part of the solution.

Life in the Fast Lane -
Topic: Health and Wellness 5:34 am EDT, Aug 22, 2008

So the amphetamine-assisted, physician-abetted social adjustment of yore is back as a mass phenomenon. But it does not, at first glance, represent as severe a problem proportionally. There are fewer than 10 million medical and nonmedical amphetamine users today, whereas the population has increased from 200 million to 300 million since 1969. Amphetamine use is therefore less than two-thirds as prevalent as it was in 1969. But we might expand our purview beyond simple statistics to ask a broader sociological question: Has the medical demand that amphetamines once filled abated? Apparently not. Counting all the medicines used now for conditions that amphetamine once treated — depression, obesity, and "fatigue," or inadequate working attention — we can estimate that, proportional to population, each year roughly twice as many Americans now take a drug that would, in 1969, have very likely been an amphetamine.

That calculus suggests that if the amphetamine epidemic of the 1960s was symptomatic of a deep-rooted social disease — drug use to meet unwholesome expectations of incessant cheeriness, unnatural productivity, and extreme slimness, and to boost the postwar consumerist ethos that the sociologist David Riesman once called the "fun morality" — then America is now twice as sick. When Allen Ginsberg helped open the counterculture's own anti-amphetamine campaign in 1965 under the slogan "speed kills," he wasn't referring just to the drug that so many Americans relied on to keep up. He was also thinking of the demand that amphetamine satisfies. It might be time to think again about heeding his call.

Right. Or, maybe Amphetamine was being abused then as it was not well understood. Now that it is better understood, it is being used to help millions of people lead better lives. Methamphetamine and Benzedrine on the other hand were/are a scourge and aren't used in psychiatry. Different chemicals, different properties. Imagine that!

Clearly the author doesn't require treatment for any malady Amphetamine is used for, and has little sympathy for those of us that do.

This smacks of 'moral weakness' wrapped in pseudo-intellectual bullshit. That being said, I did enjoy the review of history.

Convicted drunk driver's naked joyride with hooker
Topic: Health and Wellness 5:30 am EDT, Aug 21, 2008

James Boppre broke all the rules of house arrest when he went for a late-night drive in his pickup truck last month.

He did not observe his curfew.

He did not remain sober.

He did not keep the peace.

And as he crashed into a Kitchener car lot -- driving naked while speeding, drunk, high on crack cocaine and next to a naked prostitute -- he was not being of good behaviour.

"This is one of the most flamboyant, flaming relapses I've ever seen," defence lawyer Brennan Smart said. "It's almost the stuff of comedy writers."

Anyone else think we should start a defense fund?

Jello's Nuts Don't Work

Hear ye, hear ye, let it be known to all that Jello's nuts stopped working. Let it also be known that he has meme'd pubmed articles about treatment for andropause because he is currently undergoing treatment for andropause and he wanted to remember those articles.

This too much information update has been brought to you by testosterone cypionate and the 18 guage needle. Additional funding provided by the upper outer quadrant of my right buttock.
