The survey found that 25 percent of people in the survey paid careful attention and had a genuine interest in the coffee they drink; those same coffee lovers also reported having a significant salary increase in recent years. The researchers noted that the salary gap also had something to do with the kind of coffee each participant preferred. Espresso drinkers earned the highest salaries, followed by coffee drinkers who grind their own beans, followed by those who used pre-ground beans.

Williams Lake, Taos, NM
Get an alpine start to your day on the gradual 2-mile hike to Williams Lake, at 11,300 feet in the high country above Taos Ski Valley. The trail parallels the Rio Hondo upstream to the lake. From there you can look up at New Mexico's highest point, Wheeler Peak; if you're feeling ambitious, follow the faint goat path that scrambles up the scree field on the north side of the tarn to the summit above, with views 60 miles north to Colorado.
Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, CA
It's on a lot of people's life list of adventures--the demanding hike/climb up 8,800-foot Half Dome. Allow at least 10 hours, and know that the last 900 feet of trail is a steep climb up the dome, with you clinging to cables for the final 400-foot ascent.

Out of 4,500 men with cancer that had not spread from the prostate, researchers found that men who "replaced 10 percent of their total daily calories from carbohydrates […] with vegetable fats (such as olive oil and canola)," after they had been diagnosed, resulted in a 29 percent lower risk of developing the more deadly form of prostate cancer. Also when added, a daily ounce of nuts showed "an 18 percent lower risk of developing metastatic prostate cancer."

After viewing their own profiles for just five minutes, participants scored higher on a test that measured their levels of self-esteem.

Generally speaking, I'm full of haterade when it comes to Facebook. What's to love about a public forum devoted to self-obsession and one-upmanship? But these new findings do make sense. We post carefully curated information about ourselves, we flood our newsfeeds with reminders of fun times, and we publish pictures that we want 937 of our closest friends to see. Visiting our profile for a few minutes is probably the same as thumbing through an old photo album: It just makes us feel good.

I realized how much my relationship with the sun had changed a few weeks ago, when spring finally hit New York after a long, gray winter and everyone in the city flocked to the nearest park or rooftop. Instead of joining them, I found myself grabbing my Panama hat and heading straight to the pharmacy to stock up on some sunscreen.
Last November, after going through what I thought was my standard annual exam at the dermatologist's office-submit to a mole check, have one or two spots removed, receive a letter in the mail saying everything was fine-I got a call while at work informing me that my tests were in. One of the biopsies, a small patch of skin taken from between my shoulder blades, had tested positive for melanoma.
The nurse on the phone recommended a surgical dermatologist and asked me to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. I needed to move fast, she explained, as I hung up the phone and struggled to hold back my tears. Needless to say, I was

It’s no longer enough for certain brides to demand that guests spend wads of money on presents, new outfits, and plane tickets to far-flung destination weddings. Nope, they now feel A-OK dictating to guests exactly what they should be eating—for three weeks prior to their big day.
Well, at least one betrothed lady does, anyway.
Rainbeau Mars, the actor and yoga- and holistic-health guru with “an irresistible glow,” according to her website, has requested that her guests “try out a vegan, and subsequently live food diet for 21 days” before her upcoming Kauai wedding to Hollywood business manager Michael Karlin, according to the Huffington Post. That way, Mars’s publicist explained in the piece, “everyone will look and feel their best for HER big day.”

HOW I GOT GOING: Every two years I'd have to go for a physical for work. It seemed like every time I went there was a problem--first it was high blood pressure, then sleep apnea, and then in 2012, they told me I had high blood sugar and potentially had type 2 diabetes. That really shocked me. The other signs were there, but once I heard "diabetes"--it runs in my family--I realized "I'm killing myself…I've got to stop this." I was 380 pounds at the time. The doctor gave me guidance on what to eat, and he told me to do at least 30 minutes of cardio each day.

SECRET OF MY SUCCESS: Since I was so heavy, I knew I couldn't run, so I started with the elliptical until I felt like I could get on the treadmill. A few months later my in-laws entered me in a 5-K. At that point I'd lost 30 pounds. I finished in under 50 minutes. It felt hard and my knees hurt, but I was so proud of myself. At that point

Have you ever had one of those days when you just can't seem to remember anything or when there is just too much going on in that brain of yours to focus on the task at hand?
