Live Like Cavemen for Optimal Health

A female friend forwarded this to me…and although it was written for a female audience, the information was too accurate – for all genders – for me not to share.

Men apologize less because they do fewer things wrong…according to a new study, anyway! Karina Schumann and Michael Ross from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, were determined to find out if women do, in fact, apologize more than men, and if so, why?

Looking to Marry? Find a Location With Less of the Opposite Sex

Turns out, Beyonce was on to something when she declared ‘if you like it, then you should’ve put a ring on it,’ in one of her most popular songs, “Single Ladies.” It’s true – in places where there are less women than men, men are rushing to do just that: where there are less single ladies, men are more likely to ‘put a ring on it’ when women are younger.

If you have yet to check out any of the TED Talks we have featured, start with this one! You may know Mike Rowe from many things – Dirty Jobs, the show on the Discovery Channel, Ford commercials, and as the voice of many things, including many of the last Shark Week shows. What you may not already know is the respect and reverence with which he treats all those he comes in contact with because of his show, and the adoration he has for each job he has done.

Enjoy!
