+ - Artificial sweeteners may contribute to diabetes->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "When it comes to the sweet stuff, science often turns sour. Almost every study that has linked sugar to problems such as tooth decay, diabetes, obesity, or even childhood violence has come under heavy fire. Nonetheless, the World Health Organization released draft guidelines earlier this year that halved the recommended maximum sugar intake. Now, new research is suggesting that synthetic sweeteners like saccharin might not be a great alternative. They could have a negative effect on gut microbes and thus lead to a higher risk of diabetes, researchers say."

Split Second (the first one only) servers are down so no MP, but playing against a buddy is the really fun part
Rubber Ninjas is also another fun 2 player (local only)
Continuum is a fun little MP top down space shooter
Been playing Firefall a while; f2p rpg shooter (PvE/PvP)
Trine 3 player platformer (make sure the wizard isn't too drunk)

My new work related emails I've attempted to apply filters to since I mostly know the domains they originate from. But the label that's applied is gray, and my normal inbox has a gray background. I don't know how to change that color and it makes it pretty useless to have a label. Now, I can click on the Label in the left nav, however it's normally hidden because Gmail insists on showing hangout information at the bottom and it clutters the labels list.

in the left nav: instead of clicking the label, click the little colour box to the right of it to change the label colour

as some people have already mentioned, bigger isn't always better
