Three humorous celebrity stories
Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. Throughout his presidency, he regarded himself as one of the common people.
One day, Jefferson met a Connecticut man.
The man saw Jefferson on a tall horse, dressed in his usual clothes, thought he was a horse dealer, and fell into conversation with him.
"Said the new President.
The other said, "Jefferson was a big spender. He wears a ring on every finger. Sell his clothes for a plantation and two watches."
Jefferson laughed and said, "the President's clothes are not as handsome as yours. If you don't believe me, I'll go with you and see him."
As they rode up the White House foyer, the servant said to Jefferson, "Mr. President!"
The man in the same trade was dumbfounded.
Columbus's wonderful metaphor
After Columbus discovered the new world, people gave him a banquet.
Some of the nobles at the banquet thought he had discovered the new world by accident.
Columbus took out an egg and said, "gentlemen, which of you can stand this egg on the table?"
The nobles, unable to get up, turned to Columbus for advice.
Columbus took the egg and struck it lightly on the table. It stood.
The nobles were very unconvinced and said, "we will stand in this way."
Columbus laughed and said, "the trouble is that none of you clever people thought of doing this before I did."
Returned to their owners
After many life choices, the founder of Buddhism sakyamuni finally realized under the bodhi tree and reached the realm of superego. Like the hardships of his path, his ministry was far from smooth.
At one point, a man interrupted sakyamuni's sermon by cursing him with foul language.
Sakyamuni waited for him to finish cursing and then asked him, "if one gives a gift to another and the giver refuses to accept it, who shall the gift go to?"
"Of course it belongs to the giver." The man replied without understanding.
"All right! Sakyamuni said, "I refuse to accept your dirty words. Now return them to you!"

The nine countries with the healthiest cuisine in the world
Fast food originated in the United States, which was consistently ranked the fattest country in the world. Americans have higher rates of heart disease and diabetes. After the arrival of foreign food in the United States, local "modifications" were made to American tastes and eating habits, and they tended to choose the most "fat" food in the foreign diet as dinner, such as pizza with cheese filling and greasy salami slices.
Traditional French, Spanish and Chinese food is among the healthiest in the world. Here, processed food is replaced by fresh food, and elaborate, healthy cooking replaces the easy way of frying in the microwave and at high temperatures. Although butter, cooking oil and sugar compounds originated in these three countries, their different cooking philosophies have kept the prevalence of common diseases and diabetes low.
Similarly, in Greece and Israel, the concept of food is even more fastidious, they will eat slowly to enjoy the food, and in this way to relax. A hurried pace of life combined with the habit of eating without a whole meal is certainly not a way to maintain health and longevity. Using the CIA World Factbook and the World Health Organization's information on obesity, heart disease and diabetes, here are nine countries with the healthiest foods.
In Japan, which has one of the lowest rates of obesity in the developed world, people focus on longevity. Their diet is dominated by vegetables, rice and soya beans, which reflects their concern for health. The Japanese also eat fresh seafood and dairy products, but in moderation. Interestingly enough, Tokyo alone has more Michelin stars than Paris, New York, London and Hong Kong combined.
The widely held belief that "French women don't get fat" is true, and everyday French meals are not made up of hollandaise and foie gras. Instead, French food USES plenty of fresh vegetables, such as French beans, and a variety of well-made proteins. The most missed dishes are fish stew, white omelet and fresh salad.
Italy has one of the lowest rates of diabetes in the world, according to the world health organization. It also tells people that there are more healthy and delicious delicacies in Italian cuisine than pizza, pasta and ice cream. Today, pasta is cooked in a light, low-protein, vegetable-rich way. Also, italians cook with olive oil, which is good for heart health and rich in omega-3s. It also effectively ensures the health of food.
Generally speaking, seafood is the main food in Swedish cuisine and Nordic food. The cuisine in this region is mainly cooked in healthy ways, such as smoking, stewing, drying and marinating. The main course is served with vegetables and fruit, and even the main course is served without heavy sauces or Fried food. White bread and crackers are often replaced by crisp rye bread because of its rich fiber content.
Mediterranean cuisine is definitely a favorite of dieters and body shapers because they are not only healthy but also have a special effect on weight loss. Traditional Greek food consists of green vegetables, omega-3 rich olive oil, fresh seafood, whole grains, as well as fresh fruit and a small amount of dairy products. Small portions of food, called mezze, are also popular here.
Island cuisine is also health-conscious, with food made from fresh fish and seafood, starchy vegetables, rice and peppers. Especially in Bermuda, anguilla and the cayman islands, these ingredients lower blood pressure and boost metabolism. These dishes also use plenty of fresh tropical fruits, giving them a strong Caribbean flavor.
When it comes to Swiss food, most people think of thick bread, sticky cheese, and meat-based foods. Switzerland, however, has an enviable low rate of obesity and low rates of heart disease and diabetes. That's because people here tend to focus on local, seasonal food, mostly from small local farms, and it's simple. Meat and cheese are eaten in relatively moderate quantities. In the morning, locals like to have a muesli, a breakfast of dried fruit, oats and nuts.
Spain is perhaps best known for jamon iberico and rich cheese. However, their cuisine is rich in vegetables, fresh fish, grains and beans. Many traditional appetizers are vegetarian (for example, garlic mushrooms and grilled vegetables) or feature grilled live fish and seafood.
Also a Mediterranean country, Israeli food has many similarities to Greek food. Use olive oil; Fresh vegetables, such as eggplant, tomatoes and zucchini, as well as the "jewish seven treasures" (grapes, olives, pomegranates, etc.), which are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. As a result, israelis live longer and have lower rates of heart disease.

The Washington metropolitan transit authority (WMATA) said this week it was buying emergency flu supplies from compliant production suppliers to keep WMATA employees safe and guard against the spread of the new coronavirus. But WMATA also pointed out that the purchase was a precautionary measure, not because of any imminent threat.
Since new coronavirus epidemic broke out in China, the United States has more than ten cases of diagnosed patients, worked as a personnel exchanges between China and America in the town, the local Chinese community of particular concern for the prevention of the evolution of the epidemic and public places such as schools and subway have started there are a few people wearing masks, masks and other products of many stores also out of stock or restricted.
The city's subway system, which carries hundreds of thousands of commuters daily, has also begun taking steps, with WMATA this week inviting bids for emergency flu supplies from compliant suppliers to ensure the safety of WMATA employees and prevent the spread of the new virus.
Although the move comes at a time when concerns about the new coronavirus are rising, WMATA said it was stocking up on supplies that could be used in other emergencies.
WMATA expects to have the supplies ready by the end of next week, including 43,428 disposable dust masks, 797 reusable masks, 1,846 boxes of disinfectant, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer sensors, 1,478 boxes of rubber gloves, 362 garbage bags, and 9,495 portable hand sanitizers.
Although the centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) does not recommend normal healthy people to wear masks to guard against the new virus, non-chinese community attention and reaction also is inferior to the Chinese community, but the English media also reported every day, all the Chinese ghettos of local health department also in close cooperation with the community, to convey the new crown virus relevant information accurately.
The department of Health of Virginia and Montana counties with large Chinese residents in Washington recently contacted the Chinese American Community Health Services, a volunteer organization in Washington, d.c., to help organize a new coronavirus prevention conference for the Chinese Community and disseminate CDC and local Health department prevention guidelines.

Let's say you've been trying to get rid of fat for years, but to no avail, and now I'll tell you why. When fully understood, it will help you to stop doing something that is impossible to succeed at, and that keeps hitting you.
Most physicians, dietitians and government agencies still say that weight management is simple, as long as you burn more calories than you eat. Their views on weight management are as biased as those of the geographer, the continental drift, or the creationist view of earth science. What they call "eating less and moving more" completely ignores the effects of insulin. Any discussion of how many calories to eat, as opposed to how many calories to burn, must include the role of insulin, which determines whether sugar or fat is metabolized, and a condition called homeostasis.
Homeostasis is when your body stabilizes inputs and outputs to keep you alive, and you don't have to worry about it: your body quivers to keep warm, or you sweat to keep cool. If shivering is not enough to warm your body, you will wear a coat for comfort; And when it's hot outside, you take off clothes. When your body needs your help to maintain comfort, homeostasis calls you into action.
When it comes to eating and exercising, homeostasis goes beyond willpower and determination. Consider this: a pound of fat has 3,500 calories, whether it comes from a salmon, a pig, a pile of soybeans, or your belly fat. An hour of strenuous exercise can burn 700 to 900 calories, depending on your size and endurance. Let's count 700 calories, because that's the metabolic rate most people can afford if they're forced to jog for an hour.
Mathematically, to burn a pound of fat, at 700 calories per hour, you would have to exercise for five hours and not eat any more calories. The problem is, exercise makes you hungry, and when you're metabolizing glucose, you can't exercise for more than two or three hours without getting more glucose. For every 700 calories of carbs consumed, you would have to work out an extra hour to eliminate 3,500 calories from that pound of fat. This extra hour of exercise turns into an hour of activity that increases appetite.
If you make it through five to seven hours of jogging and burn 3,500 calories, you'll be ravenous for the next few hours and will eat all the calories back up, because homeostasis insists on keeping your output in balance with your inputs. Willpower has nothing to do with it. Your body is "bound" to recover lost calories.
So if you're jogging just to burn calories, there's a scientific reason to stop. Exercise strengthens muscles and maintains blood flow, calms you down, gets rid of body waste, and even increases endorphins. There are many benefits, but none of them include weight loss. Enjoy hiking, walking, rowing, cycling and swimming, regardless of how many calories are metabolized.
