    SAVE MORE TOMORROW

    In 2005 the personal savings rate for Americans was negative for the first time since 1932 and 1933—the Great Depression years. On average, American households spent more than they earned and borrowed more than they saved. Increased borrowing rates were fueled by substantial growth in home equity loans and in credit card debt. For many Americans, savings rates, especially retirement savings, are woefully low, if not zero. Consider, for example, the case of Tony Snow, the former White House press secretary, who resigned at age fifty-two in 2007 to return to the private sector. He said his motivation for leaving was financial. “I ran out of money,” he told reporters.…

    First benchmarks: Core i7-11700K available in stores much too early

    One month before the official launch, Intel’s Core i7-11700K has already appeared at several retailers. While one shop quickly took its listings offline again, another is still delivering. For Intel, this could develop into a PR disaster, because the platform is not even ready yet. There is extensive work on the BIOS behind the scenes. Mainboard manufacturers are currently warning the press with samples not to use them for Rocket Lake-S , but only for Comet Lake-S . As a result, CPUs from retailers encounter the same problems: They will work, but not in the way that everyone involved imagines. Nevertheless, a broad field will report on the results in the coming days and weeks before the actual…

    CPU rumors: AMD’s Genoa for servers with 96 Zen 4 cores

    AMD’s Genoa server CPU will probably be unveiled at the end of 2022. The first assumed key data show an interesting complete package, which starts with 96 Zen 4 cores, continues with 128 PCIe lanes of the fifth generation and finds its place with a wide 12-channel memory interface in the huge SP5 socket with 6,096 contact areas.

    Emotions and sociability: an influence of the seasons on the brain

    The seasons have an impact on emotions and social life. Negative emotions are more moderate in the summer, while the frequency of seasonal affective disorder peaks in the darker winter months. Since endogenous opioids , which are neurotransmitters, contribute to the brain’s regulation of both mood and sociability, researchers at the University of Turku (Finland) compared the amount of opioid receptors in the brain according to seasons. Their work was published in February 2021 in the Journal of Neuroscience . Lihua Sun and his colleagues analyzed brain images from 204 volunteers. A small dose of radioactive tracer that binds to opioid receptors has been injected into the bloodstream. The images…

    Two Forms of Psychotherapy Reduce Anxiety and Change Personality

    Previous research by researchers in the Department of Psychology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology has shown that people with anxiety disorders can benefit from cognitive-behavioral and metacognitive psychotherapies.

    The runner’s euphoria isn’t due to endorphins but cannabinoids

    Exercise-induced euphoria and reduced anxiety are not caused, as is believed, by the release of endorphins , which are endogenous opioids , shows a study to be published in April 2021 in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology . Exercise releases two classes of rewarding molecules, endocannabinoids and opioids. Michael Siebers and Johannes Fuss of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (Germany), along with their colleagues, conducted this study with 63 participants to check whether the runner’s “ high ”, i.e. euphoria and reduction anxiety, depends on opioid signaling. They used naltrexone, an antagonist of the receptor opioid (which blocks the action of opioids) in a randomized experiment with placebo, double-blind. Participants showed increased…

    RAISING VEGAN CHILDREN AND TEENS

    INFANTS Even the most confident vegan adults might feel a little nervous about a vegan diet for their newborn baby. Infants typically triple their weight in the first year of life and need enough nutritious food to see them through this early growth spurt. Can a vegan diet satisfy their needs? During the first months of a baby’s life, this isn’t even an issue. All infants start out as vegetarians. Or, to be more correct, they begin their lives as “lactarians.” For the first four months or so, infants don’t need anything other than breast milk. It’s the perfect, complete food for a newborn. Unless they are given B12 supplements…

    A HEALTHY START Vegan Diets in Pregnancy and Breast-Feeding

    Family members, friends, and even your health-care provider might express surprise and concern at the idea of a vegan pregnancy. But vegan diets can easily meet the nutritional needs of you and your growing baby. The proof comes from a 1987 study of 775 women living on the Farm, a vegan community in Tennessee.1 The researchers looked at weight gain in pregnant women and birth weights of their babies—two important measures of a healthy pregnancy. They found that the women’s vegan diets had no effect on the birth weights of their babies and that their own weight gain during pregnancy was adequate. In fact, these women actually gained a little…
