In the study, researchers compared the effects of one session of physical activity in the morning to “microbouts” throughout the day to sitting at a desk all day. It’s no surprise that sitting all day takes a toll on the body and mind, but even small quantities of activity throughout the day can be helpful in boosting your health.
Researchers found that microbouts of activity had the best effect on mood, energy levels, and cognitive function. While one bout of activity in the morning is still better than sitting for six hours straight and was shown to increase office workers’ self-perceived energy, the microbouts method improved workers’ moods, decreased fatigue, and reduced food cravings.
On Wednesday, Nicki Minaj blessed her fans with a music video for her collaboration with Gucci Mane. We knew the vid would be super hot as, for starters, the song is called Make Love AND the A-lister teased a seXXXy image (above) from the project on Instagram on Tuesday evening.
Of course, we were stoked for this music video to drop as this particular duet was why her beef with Remy Ma was reignited. So, enough chit chat from us, go ahead and ch-ch-check out Miz Minaj’s latest video for yourself (below).
Just a few weeks ago, Marvel Comics premiered America, the company’s first solo title led by a lesbian, a super strong Latina named America Chavez.
This is a huge deal, but it turns out comic books in general have become much more progressive lately — introducing many new LGBT characters who have quickly become fan faves AND ALSO revealing some unexplored sexualities of classic superheroes.
Of course, in the case of Wonder Woman it’s BASICALLY just confirming what we all assumed; we mean, she lived on an island of nothing but women for hundreds of years! Those magic bracelets could only deflect that question so long! Ha!
If you’re interested in exploring some of these gay heroes for yourself, we came up with a great list to get you started…
Back in August, Hillary Clinton-aide Huma Abedin announced she was separating from husband Anthony Weiner after the former congressman was caught in yet ANOTHER sexting scandal! In case you forgot, he sent a photo of his crotch while his toddler son was lying right next to him.
According to recent reports, the political staffer wants to give her marriage another try.
“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony… He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the [Irving Place apartment] they share… If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn.”
Apparently, their families don’t want the couple to throw in the towel either.
“Both [his and her] families are hoping they will reconcile.”
In fact, a different source says the power twosome never really broke up; it was all a PR stunt for Miz Clinton’s now-defunct campaign. The split was:
“more for optics for the campaign and [under] pressure from Hillary’s camp.”
Even though Weiner has sent explicit photos to countless woman, Miz Abedin takes comfort in the fact that he’s never had a physical affair.
“A lot of [their] friends believe this is an illness, that he is sick… Huma takes it into consideration that there’s been no affair, or physical contact that anybody is aware of. He never met [the women].”
Photoshop is officially a weapon of mass destruction…
Earlier this month, Twitter user @CaballeroSerena was faced with a dilemma when she recently called it quits with a friend: Should she delete the pics of them together, or save the snaps because she personally looked good??

Annabelle Aster doesn’t bow to convention-not even that of space and time-which makes the 1890s Kansas wheat field that has appeared in her modern-day San Francisco garden easy to accept. Even more peculiar is Elsbeth, the truculent schoolmarm who sends Annie letters through the mysterious brass mailbox perched on the picket fence that now divides their two worlds.
Annie and Elsbeth’s search for an explanation to the hiccup in the universe linking their homes leads to an unsettling discovery-and potential disaster for both of them. Together they must solve the mystery of what connects them before one of them is convicted of a murder that has yet to happen…and yet somehow already did.
