Comment: Zone for the input, CrossFit for the output (Score 1) 1806

If you just want to lose weight, all you need to do is change your diet. I'm a zone diet fan, but there are lots of other ways to go. Just keep your carb/protein/fat ratio to around 40/30/30 and cut out refined carbs, replacing them with fruits and vegetables. If you want to get more fit (stronger, faster, more agile, etc.), you can't beat CrossFit. It's highly effective, and you can do it at home. http://www.crossfit.com/ - go, read, watch the videos, and get some.

New research is starting to be conducted in the area of infrared radiation. Cheap to develop infrastructure for, super fast and with huge amounts of spectrum available (literally many terahertz), is this the unlicensed answer to the dearth of wireless spectrum? This article delves deeper into the world of IR and looks at its pros and foibles.

A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that works.
