Why I Hate Citing References.

citations

References are Expensive:
You know what I hate about using references? Sometimes it's just too many damn references to explain what I'm talking about or how I arrived at it. Do you mean to call me a liar? Do you want a complete course in this stuff? It would literally take 2-3 hours a post to find and quote everything I'm talking about and then meticulo...

Could policy revisions lead to a healthier nation?

weight loss

So, I was reading this over at the FDA and it dawned on me that these safety side effects were only likely to occur in people who are aged. In young people, it would very likely not be an issue. So here's the bigger issue: 
If you take these away from young people or dissuade them from using them altogether, the young people will lose the opportunit...

win$100 for 'best regimen'

win$100 for 'best regimen' The forum structure at the heart of LongeCity works well in facilitating a free flow of communication and information exchange.
Other more structured ways of curating information have their own advantages, but their adoption appears to be more difficult.  In 2014 we closed the 'regimen' forums for brain enhancement and general supplements in favou...

venting

Shalots “ Shalot ” = a made-up word for a type of person active in life extension, cryonics, artificial intelligence and related fields. Sometimes encountered on LongeCity.  The word is a constriction of ‘zealot’ and ‘shallow’ and also a reference to Tennyson’s poem ‘the Lady of Shalott’ (2x’t’) as someone who is removed from the real world, obsessed with...

Healthy smoothie life

Life continues! 
Although in many ways I'm quite healthy (knock on wood), and looking at Facebook pictures of my classmates from high school and college, I find they often look a decade plus older than I am--in some ways too being a health nut might not be ultimately so healthy. It could be a way of postponing my life. Instead of seizing the day, I j...

I happened to notice a Red Light Therapy room among the tanning rooms at Planet Fitness yesterday. As many will have read here on the forum, there is lots of support for for 650nm (red) light and producing collagen and not only this, but it's not tanning, it doesn't use wavelengths which are known to cause cancer. So planet fitness is apparently helping u...

Nicotinamide Riboside - Some Notes

Posted by Anthony_Loera in Bit o' Research, 23 November 2016 - - - - - - · 1,629 views
rgnr, nice ruffles

NR - Nicotinamide Riboside NR activates SIRT2 ? (hmm not sure, I got to re-listen again)
NR one of 3 precursors to NAD
Out of the 3 precursors NR takes the least amount of ATP to make NAD, so if you have low ATP. in your system.. not lots of NAD
Bad hearts have low ATP, so NR is preferable for NAD Sirtuins require NAD NMN not considered a p...

Just saw a thirty-something black guy with two black eyes. He was driving a maroon Mercury Grand Marquis with chrome edging, from the old days. There was a sign in the back window of the car saying, "Trump: Make America Great Again." He wore a baseball cap and had a lot of stuff/clothes in the car. Maybe his "black eyes" were anti-glare markings. Either w...

Hey,
Lately I've been using Baclofen , Etizolam, and Clomethiazole on night 1 for sleep,
Then on night 2 i switch to pregabalin and pagoclone.
I used to use trazodone but went off it since starting a daily mirtazapine (perscribed). I feel like the baclofen is a really good thing in the sleep combo but I think it might affect my mood negatively the ne...

Knocked out 2500 Calories today in 3 sessions, so an extra 850 today. The first 1300 were painless, tiny bit of pain on the left side behind the knee, but I think I know why, and I learned something and will modify the regimen for tomorrow to take advantage of it.. Got tons of stuff done and feel great. Motivation is back and outlook is great. I have a fe...

Laser hair removal for anti-aging (loose) hypothesis

hair removal, tria, laser

So I notice an improvement in my skin condition when I shave the body hair that stays in remit until the hair starts popping through the surface again. Shaving makes my face itch less, and the longer the hair grows, the itchier it gets. So I looked into permanent hair removal types that disable the hair follicle and found a home DIY laser called TRIA and...

Lost track of the days. I am noticing that keep a journal everyday of my progress of my habits is essential. I participate in other things in life and they can consume my time, leading me off the path. Only waking up days later to realize I am off the path,

Many people will tell you that knee pain and arthritis i...

So, as I said in the previous article, these things are easy to grow, indestructible, even for lackadaisical gardeners like me, and they save lots of money while providing benefits similar to those of Goji supplements. But you're going to want to keep eating them in the winder and in the early spring before your plants start producing. So here's what you'...
