Brain rule 1 for presenters: Exercise boosts brain power.
1. Our brains were built for walking—12 miles a day!
2. To improve your thinking skills, move.
3. Exercise gets blood to your brain, bringing it glucose for energy and oxygen to soak up the toxic electrons that are left over. It also stimulates the protein that keeps neurons connecting.
4. Aerobic exercise just twice a week halves your risk of general dementia. It cuts your risk of Alzheimer’s by 60 percent.

For over 25 years Michael has been building delightfully detailed scenes of mid-20th century America using 1/24 models.
‘I’m creating a mood, something familiar in the viewer’s mind,’ Smith told the New York Times.
The reason a cheap and cheery point-and-shoot works well for forced perspective photography is because of the very small sensors cheaper compact cameras tend to have. The small sensor facilitates a much greater depth of field, much greater than that of a full
frame sensor. The smaller the sensor the easier to get everything in sharp focus. So dust off your old point and shoot and give it a try!
There is a real miracle in this gray cheerless building on the outskirts of Kyiv, Ukraine
