Health, fitness ideal New Year’s Resolutions

 

Written by David Vergun

U.S. ArmyWashington, D.C. – Working out or losing weight often tops the list for New Year’s resolutions — with varying degrees of success experienced by those who do.

Those resolutions can be achieved painlessly, and, people don’t have to wait until 2014 to get started, according to a family medicine doctor at Madigan Army Medical Center in Joint Base Lewis-McChord, or JBLM, Wash.

Dr. (Col.) John O’Brien, who is also chief of Operational Medicine, is convinced he knows what he’s talking about because he said it worked for him.

Dr. (Col.) John O'Brien poses for a photo a few months ago with his wife Karen and son Thomas, who is 11. Karen is now serving as a surgeon in Kabul, Afghanistan.

4 out of 10 Households Can Switch With Little or No Change to Driving Habits

Union of Concerned ScientistsWashington, D.C. – Four out of 10 households could use an electric vehicle with little or no change to their driving habits and vehicle needs, according to a national survey released by the Union of Concerned Scientists and Consumers Union.

While less than 1 percent of the country are driving electric vehicles (EVs) today, the survey found 42 percent of respondents with cars — equivalent to 45 million households when applied nationally — meet the basic criteria for using plug-in hybrid electric vehicles like the Chevy Volt.

If everyone who could use an EV had one today, we would save 350 million barrels of oil a year. «Read the rest of this article»

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter snaps pictures of Chang’e 3 Landing Site on the Moon

 

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – Chang’e 3 landed on the Moon at Mare Imbrium (Sea of Rains) just east of a 450 m diameter impact crater on December 14th, 2013.

Soon after landing, a small rover named Yutu (or Jade Rabbit in English) was deployed and took its first tentative drive onto the airless regolith. At the time of the landing LRO’s orbit was far from the landing site so images of the landing were not possible.

This animated GIF shows the Chinese Chang'e lander (large white dot in the center of the second image) and Yutu rover (smaller white dot below the lander). The individual images were taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera Narrow Angle Camera. (NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University)
