U.S. exercise guidelines coming in 2008. If this is anything like the food pyramid, no one will even notice.
~ Many Kids "Grow Out Of" Migraines As They Reach Adulthood. I did, thank god(dess).
~ Bob the trainer from the Biggest Loser (NBC) gives you weight loss tips.

~ Researcher Explores Psychological Well-being And Physical Health, Wins Seligman Award. The Eighth Annual Martin E.P. Seligman Award for Outstanding Dissertation Research in Positive Psychology went to a researcher looking at how psychological health impacts physical health.
~ Anxiety Disorders And Physical Conditions Linked. Anxiety disorders appear to be independently associated with several physical conditions, including thyroid disease, respiratory disease, arthritis and migraine headaches, according to a report in the October 23 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.
~ meleephd at clear mind offers an excerpt from the Sandhinirmochana Sutra in analyzing yoga – the definitive teaching of yoga.
~ Mystery of Existence offers Headlessness and radical subjectivity.
~ Bob at Dust had a Cranky, mean-spirited reaction to Stuart Davis’s blog when Stu ranted against rationalist flatland (Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins).

~ natasha at feminish looks at the relationship between how women dress and how men interpret that in Flesh, cloth and rape. The post ends with an anti-rape message (always important), but up until then she was making good points about how women choose their own identity through clothes, and how that doesn't give men any rights over them.
~ Integrative Spirituality reposts what I am guessing is an older article, but a good one, Bringing Goddess Home.

~ Beyond the Whopper: Fast food goes organic and natural.
~ Google's green plans: It was big news a few weeks ago when Google announced plans to put a solar voltaic system on its Mountain View, Calif., headquarters. . . . But according to a leaked company document, that was just a small part of a much more ambitious plan.
~ An Interesting New Prediction Market, for those of you who are fans of Freakanomics.
~ From P2P Foundation: Examining our assumptions on economies of scale.

And that's all for now. Might do one of these on the weekend -- otherwise, more on Monday.
