The Really Good And Really Bad News On Lifelong Learning – Forbes

There is light at the end of the tunnel for lifelong learning, but not for the reasons you may ... [+] think.

We are now closer to the year 2050 than the year 1990. Let that sink in for a bit and along with it try to contemplate the massive talent development revolution we will face in the next 30 years. With rapidly changing technology, the speed at which businesses must operate to be competitive in a global economy and with human life expectancy rising steadily, its clear that lifelong learning will become essential for humans to remain relevant in the workplace. The bad news is theres little evidence that lifelong learning can be taught and that any organization thus far has mastered it for their own human resource needs. The good news is that those hard truths might not matter anymore simply because lifelong learning will be thrust upon us as a staple of everyday work life. It will no longer be optional or aspirational; it will be a necessity and ubiquitous.

Weve already heard some of the statistics that project people will have as many 15 different jobs over their working lifetime. And we know the shelf-life of technical skills, such as software development, are getting shorter and shorter. Then theres the recent IBM report that predicts more than 120 million people will need up-skilling or re-skilling in the next three years and that the average length of training needed to close skills gaps has increased from 3 days to 36 days in just five years time. On top of the fast-changing marketplace of jobs and technology, theres also the coming impact of human longevity. Projections from a 2015 United Nations report indicate that average lifespans in the U.S. will reach 95 years for females and 90 years for males in the U.S. by 2050. Another report from 2012 indicated that 1/3 of babies born that year will live to 100. If it becomes common for people to live to 100 (or beyond), it will also become common for them to retire in their 80s extending their working years dramatically.

How will we grapple with all this? Its hard to fathom. But whats clear is that we need to build and operate a talent development system that is closer to the 2050 version than to the 1990 (or dare I say 1890) model we have now. Lifelong learning has long been a stated ambition of colleges and universities. The words lifelong learning are among the most commonly used in college mission statements. Given that, we ought to have ample outcome measures that demonstrate how graduates become lifelong learners. The truth is, we dont. Searching for evidence of lifelong learning is a little like the search for evidence of life on Mars; many scientists believe well eventually find it, but so far we havent.

Through an analysis of responses from more than 250,000 U.S. adults conducted by Gallup, there was no difference in the likelihood of respondents saying they learn or do something interesting each day across high school drop-outs, high school graduates, associates degree holders and bachelors degree holders. The only group that was statistically more likely to say so were those with post-graduate education. Other Gallup research arguably its most profound and influential of all on innate talent and strengths-based development, makes a strong case that some humans are born with learner talent. That is, learning comes more intuitively and naturally to them than it does to others. My current thesis about why post-graduate degree holders are more likely to report lifelong learning is two-fold. First, they are simply more likely to be those innate learners. And, second, post-graduate education involves more applied learning and in-depth research work than the typical undergraduate education.

If its the case that not even bachelors degrees are guarantees for becoming lifelong learners, how will we ever get our entire workforce there? The answer is a hopeful one because the question has rather suddenly been rendered moot. A quick look around our world today and a peek onto the horizon of 2050 tells us so. The expression necessity is the mother of invention is rather apropos here. Well bring the invention of lifelong learning to fruition once and for all because of outright necessity.

Colleges, for example, can no longer hope that lifelong learning magically happens for graduates after 4 years of study; they have to extend their roles by getting directly involved in delivering it for graduates next 40 to 60 years of their careers. Employers can no longer assume that a sprinkling of compliance training, some occasional professional development and some sporadic technical re-skilling will turn their human capital into lifelong learners. It will require them to transform everything from how hours are spent during the workday to how continual learning and education will be financed. What every CEO will soon realize is that business transformations require human capital transformations. And once that realization sinks in, we will all become lifelong learners whether we like it or not.

Are stem cells really the key to making humans live longer? – Wired.co.uk

To some longevity acolytes, stem cells promise the secret to eternal youth. For a hefty fee, you can pay a startup to extract your own stem cells and cryogenically freeze them, in the hope that they can one day be used in a treatment to help extend your life.

Other firms let you bank stem cells from your babys umbilical cord and placenta after childbirth, if youre convinced the high cost represents an insurance policy against future illness. Or you can follow the example of Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett and opt for an anti-ageing cream made with stem cells derived from the severed foreskins of newborn babies in South Korea.

Stem cells are the parent cells which give rise to other cells in our bodies. Since scientists first isolated human embryonic stem cells in a lab and grew them over 20 years ago, they have been mooted as a source of great hope for regenerative medical treatments, including for age-related degenerative conditions such as Parkinsons, Alzheimers, heart disease and stroke.

But apart from a few small-scale examples, the only stem cell-based medical treatment practised in clinics uses haematopoietic stem cells found in the blood and bone marrow which only produce blood cells for transplants in blood cancer patients. These cells are taken from a patients sibling or an unrelated donor, before being infused into a patients blood, or theyre taken from a patients own blood before being reinfused. The procedure has been used to treat blood malignancies for almost half a century, and recently multiple sclerosis too. So how likely is it that the predictions about stem cells' longevity-enhancing powers will become a reality?

In September 2019, Google banned ads for unproven or experimental medical techniques such as most stem cell therapy, citing a rise in bad actors attempting to take advantage of individuals by offering untested, deceptive treatments [that can often] lead to dangerous health outcomes. The decision was welcomed by the International Society for Stem Cell Research, which emphasised that most stem cell interventions remain experimental. Selling treatments before well-regulated clinical trials have been done, the body said, [threatens public] confidence in biomedical research and undermines the development of legitimate new therapies.

Its easy to see how less scrupulous companies can exploit the allure of stem cells, which seem to occupy a place in our collective consciousness as a kind of magical elixir. High hopes for stem cell-based therapies have grown since 2006, when the Japanese biologist Shinya Yamanaka created a new technology to reprogram adult cells, such as skin cells, into a similar state to embryonic stem cells, which are pluripotent, meaning they can develop into any tissue in the body. The Nobel prize-winning breakthrough was hailed as a major step in the study of stem cells without the need for controversial embryo research, and towards the use of these human induced pluripotent stem cells to regenerate damaged or diseased organs or effectively grow new spare parts which could treat the life-limiting and life-shortening illnesses associated with ageing.

Gerontologist Aubrey de Grey, whose Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) research foundation aims to eliminate ageing-related diseases, thinks the chances well soon have stem cell based therapies are high. For anything that's in clinical trials, you're talking about maybe five years before it's available to the general public, he says, citing stem cell treatments for Parkinsons disease, currently being tested in phase two clinical trials, as one of the developments he thinks is likely to come soonest.

However, given that these trials involve a relatively small number of participants and most clinical trials ultimately fail, his predictions might be overly optimistic. Often described as a maverick, De Grey believes that humans can live forever and there is a 50 per cent chance medical advances of which stem cell therapies will play an important part will make this a reality within the next 17 years. Though living forever, he says, is not the ultimate goal but a rather large side effect of medicine which will successfully prevent or repair the damage that comes with ageing.

For New Jersey-based Robert Hariri, who co-founded Human Longevity Inc, which set its sights more modestly on making 100 the new 60, stem cells derived from placentas present especially exciting opportunities. A biomedical scientist, surgeon and entrepreneur, Hariri says his current venture Celularity which is focused on engineering placental cells, including stem cells, to create drugs for cancer and other conditions is not as concerned about the actual age number, but about preserving human performance as we age and treating the degenerative diseases that rob us of our quality of life.

Many of those working in the field, however, remain cautious in their optimism. Researchers have highlighted the potential risks of giving pluripotent cells to patients, whether they are induced or embryonic, as these cells can develop cancer-causing mutations as they grow.

Davide Danovi, a scientist at Kings College Londons Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine, says the path to stem cell-based therapy is very long and full of hurdles. The supply chain involves challenges, he says. On the one hand, allogeneic treatments those with stem cells derived from one individual and expanded into big batches to create cells to treat many individuals have the advantage of being similar to the traditional pharmaceutical business models. The product is clear, its something that comes in a vial and can be scaled up and mass produced, Danovi says. But this treatment can present a greater risk of rejection from the patient, as opposed to the more bespoke autologous option which is more expensive and time-consuming as it involves extracting a patients own stem cells before reprogramming them.

Danovi is most excited by the potential of stem cells to treat age-related macular degeneration. In 2017 Japanese scientist Masayo Takahash led a team that administered transplants of artificially grown retinal cells created from induced pluripotent stem cells taken from donors to five patients with the eye condition, which can cause blindness, and theyre reported to be doing well. The eye, he says seems to be a place where immunity plays less of a role relative to other issues, so you can host cells which come from another individual with fewer problems [of rejection]. But, with other organs such as the liver, he says there are major conceptual problems with creating enough tissue. Its like the clean meat burger - you're talking about a production that is, in many cases, not easy to reach with the current technology.

Hariri believes placentas will solve some of the production challenges crucially, theyre an abundant commodity, with the vast majority thrown out after childbirth. His interest was sparked 20 years ago when his oldest daughter was in the womb: When I saw her first ultrasound in the first trimester, the placenta had already developed into a relatively sizable organ, even though she was just a peanut-sized embryo. Id been taught that the placenta was nothing more than an interface, but [if that was the case], you would expect that it would grow at the same rate as the embryo. His curiosity piqued, he began to see the placenta not as an interface but as a biological factory, where stem cells could be expanded and differentiated to participate in the development of that foetus. That intrigued me and I started to collect placentas and just, you know, basically disassemble them.

Placentas have numerous benefits, he says they dont carry the same ethical controversy as embryonic stem cells, for one thing. Scientists working on embryonic stem cells have to destroy an early embryo, and that option yields them a dozen cells, which have to be culture-expanded in the laboratory into billions of cells. In contrast, the placenta houses, billions and hundreds of billions of cells, which can be expanded as well, but you're starting out with a dramatically larger starting material.

Increasingly, scientists in the anti-ageing sphere are focusing on an approach that seems like the opposite of planting fresh stem cells into our bodies. Experts such as Ilaria Bellantuono at Sheffield Universitys Healthy Lifespan Institute are working towards creating senolytics medication that could kill off our senescent cells, the zombie cells that accumulate in tissues as we age and cause chronic inflammation. I think stem cells are very good for specific disease, where the environment is still young, Bellantuono says, but the data in animal models tells us that senolytics are actually able to delay the onset and reduce the severity of multiple diseases at the same time for example, there is evidence for osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and diabetes. She explains that while human trials are still in their early stages, senolytics are likely to be more cost-effective than stem cell therapy and the status quo of older patients taking multiple pills for multiple diseases, which can interact with each other. Besides, she adds, they may actually work in tandem with stem-cell based therapies in the future, with senolytics creating a more hospitable environment in tissues to allow stem cells to do their work.

And as for the so-called penis facial? Its far from the only ultra-expensive stem cell skincare making bold anti-ageing claims but youre probably better off saving your money, as you are with the experimental medical treatments on offer. Stem cells are definitely exciting but theyre not the key to eternal youth. At least, not yet.

Marketing To 100-Year-Olds: How Longevity Will Transform Finance, Healthcare And Education – Forbes

Right now, Stanford University is addressing a pressing and fascinating question:

What happens to society when everyone starts living to 100? How will we stay physically fit, financially stable and mentally sharp, especially in that back half?

Exploring these questions is the goal of the Stanford Longevity Project. To answer them, theyve partnered with major brands like Wells Fargo, Instructure, and Principal to help research key elements like financial security, lifelong learning, and healthcare.

Despite Americas average life expectancy declining the past couple years due to more overdoses, suicides and alcohol-related illnesses, people are going to be able to live longer. Strong advancements have been made in cancer. This month, the U.S. saw its sharpest one year decline in cancer death rate. That will save millions of lives alone.

But this isnt just a health and wellness conversation. What this presents are multiple opportunities in multiple verticals for marketers.

One of the biggest trends at CES this month was a new generation of healthcare wearables. There were earbuds designed to detect blood pressure for those with hypertension, temporary tattoos that tell you when to get out of the sun, smart glasses that assist people with dyslexia and watches that detect sleep apnea. These technologies are all discreet, easy to use, and built in to everyday things we already use.

We are heading toward a near future in which every human body will have a functioning check engine light. You can imagine how much better healthcare will be when a sensor will tell you something needs attention, rather than panicked scrolling through WebMD.

We will have the ability to know when something is wrong and immediately trigger tests, medication and treatment. Imagine if that sensor, using the IoT, could immediately send and fill a prescription for you.

This is all coming down the pipeline, and its going to help us live longer. Its also going to change the way marketers do their jobs and open up countless new opportunities to reach new audiences.

Heres what some of those opportunities will look like.

Cincinnati has one of the best healthcare startup scenes in the country. Cincinnati Childrens Hospital is ranked #3 nationally. CincyTech has raised nearly a billion in healthcare follow-on investment over the past ten years.

The common thread these organizations share is they are tackling high-use issues in different ways. That includes everything from small, wearable, injectable devices (Enable Injections) that can be used for a multitude of conditions, to analyzing peoples sweat to ensure proper medication dosing (Eccrine Systems).

One of the most interesting might be Sense Diagnostics because their simple device addresses a huge need: stroke detection. Right now there isnt a good way to tell which kind of stroke (transient ischemic, ischemic, or hemorrhagic) someone is having in the field. An ambulance with this non-invasive device will be able to quickly diagnose which stroke is occuring, allowing them to begin the best possible treatment immediately.

As people begin living longer, well see that the traditional approach to education and work must change. A longer living workforce will be more likely to need to reskill for second and third careers.

Private equity firm Thoma Bravo is buying Instructure (makers of the popular Canvas Learning Management System) for $2 billion, precisely because of the projected growth and opportunity in education as people extend their careers.

Of course, four-year higher education will still exist. But new avenues and approaches to learning will emerge as supplemental or alternative ways of reskilling for jobs that will target people in their 60s, 70s, and 80s.

Curricula will obviously also have to adapt, becoming more flexible, personalized, and life-long. Being able to brush up every three months on relevant skills via a subscription model may be a better future model for education than entering a full-time program. Most of the marketing opportunities will be around aiding employers, because they have the budgets and the competition for retention.

Living longer changes a persons entire financial strategy.

Most standard retirement principles assume that retirement will last a maximum of 30 years. The commonly-used "4% rule" of retirement is an example of this. However, if you live to 100 or beyond, your retirement could last 35 years, 40 years, or longer, said Nathan Hamilton, director and industry analyst at The Ascent from The Motley Fool.

A deferred annuity could be worth a look. Essentially, you put some money into an annuity when you first retire (or earlier), but that won't start paying out until a certain agesay, 80 or 85. The idea is that even if your retirement nest egg is getting low as you get older, this move guarantees you a predictable income stream for life.

How we invest may also change as we look to create steady income streams that kick in throughout retirement rather than just upfront. This also may inevitably cause people to work later and longer especially as our workforce trends farther away from physical labor to more mental and creative labor.

The biggest takeaway here isnt that living longer will impact one thing. It will impact everything.

As humans, we need to think about that for ourselves and our future generations. And as marketers and entrepreneurs, we can start thinking about ways we can make that reality better, more productive, and more secure for people.

6 habits of highly healthy brains – Ladders

The relationships between our brain and body and the world around us are complex. What you do or dont do can significantly change how your health and wellbeing.

A healthy brain is determined by both biological and physiological factors genes, hormones, the immune system, nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle choices.

Social, psychological and environmental factors including relationships, stress, emotions, mindset, life events and current circumstances also contribute to your brain health.

Each element can impact others in a multi-directional and dynamic way. Example, your thoughts can influence your physical health (which is why chronic stress can lead to abnormal heart rhythms or heart attacks).

Everyone wants to live an active, vibrant life for as long as possible. And that goal depends on robust brain health. You cant do much about your genes, but other physiological, social and environmental factors can be modified to improve your brain.

Our brains naturally decline if we do nothing to protect them. However, if we intervene early, we can slow the decline process its easier to protect a healthy brain than to try to repair damage once it is extensive.

You can improve your lifestyle habits to promote a highly healthy brain one free of physical or mental illness, disease, and pain. We have more control over our ageing brains than we realise.

These habits are just a reminder you already know the importance of these lifestyle choices. It pays to make a conscious effort to help yourself your brain will thank you.

That means eating lots of foods associated with slowing cognitive decline blueberries, vegetables (leafy greens kale, spinach, broccoli), whole grains, getting protein from fish and legumes and choosing healthy unsaturated fats (olive oil) over saturated fats (butter).

The connection between what goes into your body and how your brain performs is a strong one. The best diet should also be good for your brain, your heart and blood vessels.

Omega-3 fats from fish or nuts fight inflammation associated with neurodegeneration. Fruit and vegetables combat age-related oxidative stress that causes wear and tear on brain cells, says Dr Gary Small, a professor of psychiatry and ageing, and director of the Longevity Center at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior, University of California, Los Angeles.

Find your moment or place of calm and separate yourself from chronic stress.

Chronic stress can change the wiring of our brains.Stress shrinks the brains memory centres, and the stress hormone cortisol temporarily impairs memory, says Dr Small.

To reverse stress and improve your mood and memory, adopt relaxation methods like meditation. Meditation even rewires the brain and improves measures of chromosomes telomere (protective cap) length, which predicts longer life expectancy argues Dr Small.

Find your place or moment of calm, and do something pleasurable that makes you come alive a personal passion project can help you destress.

Physical activity is one of the best things you can do for your brain and body. You already know the countless benefits of exercising.

Dozens ofresearchhave found that that nearly any type of physical activity walking, running, cycling, minimal weight-lifting and even mindful exercise such as yoga contribute to improved cognitive performance.

Exercise stimulates the brain to release brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a molecule essential for repairing brain cells and creating connections between them.

Physical activity also boosts endorphins, which can lift your mood. Aerobic exercise helps improve the health of brain tissue by increasing blood flow to the brain and reducing the chances of injury to the brain from cholesterol buildup in blood vessels and from high blood pressure, says Dr Joel Salinas, a neurologist at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital.

A simple walk outdoors gets you away from digital devices and into nature. Youll do your best thinking when walking.

Stimulating and challenging the brain helps it stay fit and firing. Spend some time in new thoughts.

To improve your brain health, try to do one activity that challenges the mind every day spend some time in new thoughts. The desire to learn and understand other people, ideas, cultures and concepts can boost your brain.

higher cognitive activity endows the brain with a greater ability to endure the effects of brain pathologies compared to a person with lower cognitive engagement throughout life, says David S. Knopman, M.D., a clinical neurologist involved in research in late-life cognitive disorders.

Lifelong learning and mentally challenging work build cognitive reserve. Find reasonably challenging activities you can practice regularly try activities that combine mental, social and physical challenges.

Were social creatures meaningful social connections make us happier. Happiness makes your brain work better.

Psychological studies show that conversation stimulates the brain. It may seem effortless to many, but it requires a complex combination of skills including attention, memory, thinking, speech and social awareness.

Astudypublished in theAmerican Journal of Public Healthfound that better social interaction can help protect the brain against dementia and Alzheimers.

Social connections are as important to our flourishing as the need for food, safety, and shelter. The urge to connect is a life-long human need.

Matthew Lieberman, a social psychologist, neuroscientist, and author ofSocial: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect,sees the brain as the center of the social self. He writes in his book, Its hard to find meaning in what we do if at some level it doesnt help someone else or make someone happier.

Researchers at the Oregon Health & Science University and the University of Michigan havesuggestedthat human interaction and conversation could be the keys to maintaining brain function as we grow older.

Supportive friends, family and social connections helps you live longer, happier and healthier. Socialising reduces the harmful effects of stress

Sleep is the number one, fundamental bedrock of good health. A good night sleep every night should be a priority, not a luxury.

Without good sleep, we see increased anxiety and stress. Sleep is restorative, helping you be more mentally energetic and productive, advises Sandra Bond Chapman, Ph.D., founder and chief director of the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas at Dallas and author ofMake Your Brain Smarter.

Apart from getting a good and quality night sleep, make time for wakeful rest it pays to plan breaks in between your busy schedule. Plan downtime on your calendar.

After a busy day, give your brain time to recover sit back, close your eyes and let your mind wander (spontaneous thought in our wakeful life) in the knowledge that your brain is busy consolidating information.

In a study onBoosting Long-Term Memory via Wakeful Rest,the authors found that wakeful rest without any external stimulation allows the brain to consolidate the memories of what it has learned.

It is never too early or too late to start living more healthily. Your daily habits have more impact on how long and how well you live plan to eat well, take short walks, engage in mental stimulation, and manage your social connections for better brain health.

Rising stress levels will drop the average body temperature – The Daily Titan

Between December and February, the flu is at an all-time high. There are some who are coughing, sneezing or going through terrible headaches as they get through their everyday lives.

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people are most likely to experience the flu for three to four days. In that time span, there is a correlation between handling illness and the way body temperature reflects on this notion.

The average human body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. However, recent studies have analyzed the average human body temperature has dropped to 97.5 to 97.9 degrees Fahrenheit.

Scientists question whether the change in body temperature is the result of the change in physical longevity and body type of the normal human body.

Although the research is still developing, a change in body temperature clearly reflects a persons health given their current environment and could possibly show the immune systems ability to adapt.

According to the International Journal of Biometeorology, the change in core body temperature correlates to heart rate and skin temperature affected through different environmental and working conditions.

A study by Stanford Medicine stated that the decline in body temperature goes back to after the events of the Civil War. During that time, those who were born in the early 1800s had a much higher body temperature by 1.06 degrees Fahrenheit than the average human born during the 1990s.

In the case of the academic environments, such as college, there is a heavy correlation to students ways of coping to get over the flu with their studies and their overall body temperature.

The concept of health and academics clash. With the way students study for finals, projects and other forms of assignments that need to be finished at a discrete deadline, a healthy lifestyle is usually not followed.

The stresses of everything in life tend to weaken your immune system. (Students are) getting less sleep dealing with everything else that theyre going to end up weakening their immune system where they get sick and are just exacerbating the problem, said Richard Coulter, history major.

The idea of putting too much stress on studying not only damages a students psychological health, but also their physical health.

Todays academic culture thrives with succeeding in classes at the cost of students physical well-being. Whether were arrogant in not taking the right medication or not sleeping enough, the idea of self-care seems non-existent within the academia.

Coulter also said students shouldnt take their academics too harshly in the face of coming down with the flu while studying.

Dont overwork yourself because those stresses (with your academics) are whats going to make that time of year so much more miserable, Coulter said.

There are ways the cold or flu can be remedied for a persons health so they dont have to further get sick or catch another flu virus; especially when there are people who are always busy throughout the day.

Though methods of feeling better may vary, there are some who say medicine, such as Tylenol, gets the job done.

Marketing major Maxwell Baranoff said, Go to the store, get some Tylenol, get over it, when asked about his method of getting over the flu.

Yet there are those who say hot drinks and various forms of health devices help battle the flu.

Ive been drinking so much tea, I got a humidifier for my throat, said Shantay Alvarez, psychology major.

Considering the correlation with body temperature and health, its important for anyone, especially college students, to consider their body temperature next time they come down with the flu.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie review: a satisfying walkthrough for any fan – Vox.com

Film adaptations of video games never arrive quietly. Gaming is a billion-dollar industry; fans are notably, even infamously, hardcore. And when it comes to transitioning particularly cartoonish gaming heroes from their fantastically illogical worlds to a conventional, human-filled, real-life Earth, filmmakers face an even more daunting task of suspending our disbelief.

And for protective fans of classic video gaming mascots like Pikachu, Mario, or Sonic the Hedgehog, it would be especially impossible to forgive any crew who turned a beloved character into an unrecognizable figure. Its hard to trust Hollywood, the land of the Minions, to not reduce beloved, familiar faces into sentient, insufferably quippy Happy Meal toys.

When various studios announced live-action films based on all three of the above characters in the mid-2010s, fans grimaced. Sonic the Hedgehog, Paramount Pictures stab at the electric-blue Sega mainstay, is the second to make it to theaters. But as early marketing efforts were rolled out last year, concerns that Sonic would be manipulated by the Hollywood machine into a catchphrase-spouting terror mounted.

Perhaps fears of Sonics move to live-action feature films were needlessly alarmist, especially following Detective Pikachu. 2019s live-action Pokmon adaptation had its own prerelease concerns, since Pokmon is a multimedia franchise full of hundreds of characters and lore much more beloved and expansive than Sonics. But that movie succeeded in honoring the world upon which it was based, even if the story itself was a little flat and kiddy. Know-nothings might have sometimes struggled to follow along. But for Pokmon lovers, it was a wonderful realization of the games world.

Pikachu is a character without a preexisting personality, however; Pokmons internal logic is what most compels its fans. Sonics video games, conversely, are light on story. Its Sonic himself who has been their main attraction since the 1990s, when he was Segas high-speed challenger to Nintendos slow and stubby Super Mario.

Where Mario was a mustachioed man who could jump and jog and little else, Sonic was the Blue Blur, radiating the rad ethos of the 90s. That sensibility was best typified by a disdain for authority (think Bart Simpson), an obsession with rock stardom, eyerolls, and sarcasm. But theres a lot about the 90s that does not hold up, including Sonics personality.

People who loved Sonic and his games in his heyday continue to defend him, to respect him, to wish the best for him. Its still fun to watch him zip through loop-de-loop levels, dashing into robots and other creatures in his path without taking a breath. The classic games different bits of theme music remain unforgettable; the franchise has spawned years worth of memes and in-jokes, a true testament to longevity. Sonics supporting cast is similarly beloved in its own right, even as it has continued to expand at a sometimes infuriating rate. For a Sonic movie to be successful, it had to acknowledge the truly cool parts of classic Sonic, not just the sick, dude ones.

Pleasing nostalgic video game fans is rarely easy. What provided Sonic the Hedgehog its biggest barrier was a design gaffe appalling to everyone, not just hedge-heads. The movies first marketing materials, released in December 2018 (a poster) and April 2019 (a trailer), revealed an ... interesting ... reimagining of Sonic, with muscley calves and a full set of human-like teeth. He had bare hands instead of his trademark gloves; his eyes were small and wide set, not the shiny, oversized eyes hed always had in games.

The unveiling of the design did not go well, inspiring such vaunted accolades as nightmare, ugly [and] toothy, and frightfully realistic. So hated was Sonics original design that its director apologized and recalled it, announcing that the character would be entirely reworked for the final film. Thats a whole lot of CGI to redo on a main character, so the news elicited concerns about animators working overtime to make the movies fall release date. Sonic the Hedgehog was eventually pushed back three months, from November 2019 to February 2020, to accommodate the redesign work. But the debacle cast a pall over a production whose video game-fan audience was already skeptical.

Id count myself strongly among those initial skeptics, whose affection for Sonic is both defensive and begrudging. Even when Sonic talks too much in his video games, or the games fall apart as in the 2006 game Sonic the Hedgehog, in which he kisses a human woman on the lips theres a joyous charm to someone still so stuck in the 90s. Hes a nostalgic object wed oft-prefer to leave encased in amber.

In making the character work for a broader audience, the team behind Sonic the Hedgehog didnt sacrifice the at-times embarrassing, at-times lovable parts of Sonic. In fact, its self-aware of how tiresome Sonic can be, while still reminding fans of why we remain attached to him.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Sonic the Hedgehog manages this by telling a unique origin story, reimagining Sonic for an unfamiliar audience while winking heavily to his history. The film paints the character (voiced by the always charming Ben Schwartz) as an excitable teen whose enthusiasm belies his loneliness. Blessed with the hypnotic power of super speed, hes been hiding for most of his life, evading bad actors who would harness his speed to wreak havoc across the universe. He lives in the tiny town of Green Hills, Montana (the name is a reference to the video games), and he passes his time running around the area just quickly enough to go unseen by the folks who would freak out if they found him.

Those include Sheriff Tom Wachowski (James Marsden), a cop from Green Hills who wants to make a name for himself by joining the San Francisco Police Department. Toms life in Montana is mundane, he says; what is his purpose? Sonic poses that same question to himself, as he struggles to make peace with his solitude. So when Sonic and Tom cross paths, and Sonic reveals that hes been watching Tom and his wife from afar and imagining a life with them, its a little creepy. But mostly its the universe bringing together two guys who want fulfillment, so they can pair up to go out and find it.

Sonic is a buddy comedy in this way, focused heavily on the relationship between a grown man and his teenage, talking-hedgehog pseudo-son. Its funny and sweet, if a little plodding and bogged down by bathroom humor (for the kids!). But delving into a side of the Sonic backstory thats hardly been broached by the video games works well enough, as its hard for fans to get too annoyed with it, and it plops kids right into Sonics world without confusing them too much. Theres no Tom in the video games, but hes a decent straight man to Sonics exuberant big kid, one who can help calm down what could have easily become a hyperactive movie.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a road trip movie and an action-comedy, too. Sonic and Tom end up on the run (heh) from Jim Carrey as the evil genius Dr. Robotnik, whos trying to harness Sonics power for his own use, under the guise of helping the FBI protect the country from an unidentified speeding blue hedgehog. Toms involvement in helping Sonic flee is a contrivance designed to give Jim Carrey another human to play against, which is a little tiresome. But Carreys face is the human embodiment of Play-doh, which helps make an otherwise flat villain from the video games into a more entertaining, cartoon-y one, which feels fitting for this movie.

Sonic is a video game character first and foremost, and the movie never forgets that. Its equivalent of fight scenes, when Sonics speed is really put to the test, are easily its most delightful we watch the world from his hyperdrive perspective, as everything halts around him and he begins to move enemies ever-so-slightly out of position. Sonic was as much a mileage-per-hour as he was a hedgehog, to the point where if anyone dared seem faster than him, it was a major offense. The loyalty to this aspect of the character, even if being fast does become a one-note gimmick after 90 minutes, is welcome.

There are Easter eggs, too, that suggest that this team really does care about Sonic as more than just a marketing tool for a younger generation. If the name Sanic means anything to you, youll be pleased. Familiar sound effects play on occasion. One of the games most famous musical motifs shows up at the end, and it took me by tearful surprise. And the tiny post-credits scene (yep, theres one of those) introduced a friendly face who made me want a sequel, like, yesterday. Most importantly, the movies final rendering of Sonic, although not perfect, is so much more pleasant to look at than its first attempt. This is a Sonic we can learn to love.

What ‘dry fasting’ is and why you shouldn’t do it – PostBulletin.com

A new fad diet making the rounds on wellness influencer Instagram won't actually help you lose weight. And it could cause dehydration, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, organ failure - even death.

It's called "dry fasting." It goes beyond what most of us would consider fasting - abstaining from solid food or liquid calories - and requires consuming no water or liquids of any kind for many hours or even days at a time.

Instagram and other social media sites have provided a glossy new platform for extremely dubious health and nutrition claims. Posts about dry fasting often tout the need to "heal" or "rest" or "reset" your kidneys, or "boost" their filtration. In practice, what dry fasting will do is make you look a bit more toned, because your body is using up the water in your cells for energy.

Even more dubious claims suggest that dry fasting forces your body to burn toxins, or fat, or inflammation, or tumors. It does not. When you stop feeding your body calories, it breaks down muscle and fat. The toxic byproducts of that breakdown process build up in your system, requiring extra hydration to flush them out.

In other words, if you're abstaining from food, your body needs more water, not less.

Experts agree: There is no dietary or nutritional reason to go on a "dry fast."

"I don't recommend it at all," said Dr. Pauline Yi, a physician at UCLA Health Beverly Hills who regularly treats patients in their late teens and early 20s. She said intermittent fasting and other fasting-type diets are a popular topic with patients, and she has no problem with people trying them out.

"But I also tell them when you're fasting you have to drink water," she said. "You cannot go without hydration."

The majority of the human body is water. Your individual water consumption needs depend on your height, weight, health and the climate, but generally speaking, Yi said people should be consuming at least 68 ounces - almost nine cups - of water every day.

Cary Kreutzer, an associate professor at USC's schools of gerontology and medicine whose area of expertise includes nutrition and diet, says digestive systems aren't meant to have extended "breaks." She likened making your kidneys go without water to letting your car's engine run out of oil. "You can basically burn out some parts of the car that you're going to have to get replaced," she said. "You don't want those replacement parts to include your vital organs."

Another unintended consequence of dry fasting: It sets your body in water-conservation mode.

"Your body likes homeostasis," said Yi, the physician. "If you're going to cut back on water, your body will produce hormones and chemicals to hold onto any water."

So while you might gain a very short-term benefit by looking a tiny bit more toned while you're severely dehydrated (body-builders have been known to dry fast before competitions for that reason), once you consume liquid again, your body rebounds and desperately hangs on to even more water than before. It's like yo-yo dieting in fast motion.

Dry fasting is not the same thing as intermittent fasting, which has become a popular fad diet in recent years. There are different variations of intermittent fasting, but most people start with 16 hours of fasting followed by eight hours of eating. Martin Berkhan created the "LeanGains" 16:8 intermittent fasting guide and is widely credited with popularizing the diet. On his website, leangains.com, Berkhan writes that during the 16-hour fasting window, coffee, calorie-free sweeteners, diet soda, sugar-free gum and up to a teaspoon of milk in a cup of coffee won't break the fast.

The subreddit for fasting, r/fasting, has an "Introduction to Intermittent Fasting" guide that contains the following tips for surviving the fasting portion of your day:

Always carry water, a canteen, a bottle, or keep a full glass within sight

Water, water, water, water

Valter Longo has studied starvation, fasting and calorie restriction in humans for nearly 30 years. He's currently the director of the Longevity Institute at USC and a professor of gerontology. He developed the Fasting-Mimicking Diet, or FMD, a fasting-type diet with small prepackaged meals intended to provide the health and longevity benefits of a five-day fast without requiring a doctor's supervision. Fasting-type diets have grown in popularity in recent years for a simple reason, he said: "Because they work."

But he said he's not aware of any reputable studies about the effects of dry fasting, and said he wouldn't even consider putting one together, also for a simple reason: It's incredibly dangerous.

"For sure, the body needs to reset, but there are safe ways of doing that, and dry fasting is not one of them," Longo said. "We require water."

His work has also involved looking at how cultures and religions have engaged with starvation and fasting throughout human history, and says he hasn't heard of any that involved extended fasting without water. The closest is Ramadan, during which observers go without food or water during daylight hours - but at most, that lasts for 16 hours, and it's preceded and followed by extensive hydration.

If someone tries dry fasting for a full day, Longo said, they risk side effects like developing kidney stones. Longer than that, and you start risking your life.

Some proponents of "dry fasting" eschew water but recommend hydrating with fresh fruits and vegetables. Hydrating with fruit is certainly better than not hydrating at all. An orange has about a half-cup of water in it; to get to the recommended 68 ounces of water a day, you'd have to eat around 17 oranges. That's a lot of peeling.

So, in conclusion: Dry fasting puts you at risk of kidney stones or organ failure. There are no known, proven long-term benefits to doing it. Though different types of fasts and fasting diets can be beneficial, there is no medical evidence to suggest you need to stop consuming water for any period of time, or that water from fruit is better for you than filtered drinking water. Do not take medical advice from a photo of a person in a sarong.
