Comment Re:Its not rocket surgery... (Score 1) 865

I'd suggest being careful with the low carb diets. Honestly I have tried them and found I balloon back as soon as I get off the 'diet' and... it isn't that great for body chemistry. I do the Zone diet, which has been by far the best for me. Each meal is 40% carbs, 30% protein, 30% good fats. Carbs are gathered from fruits, and veggies, avoiding grains as much as possible. And protein is from meat (or soy if you are veggitarian). Good fats from fish/avacados etc. I'm seeing a 6pack for the first time in 14 years with the diet and some Crossfit workout. Just an idea for something else to check out.

Honestly, Crossfit has been the best boon for me as far as staying in shape and having a horrid schedule is concerned. I work 40 to 50 hours a week, but I also go to school fulltime. (2nd time through college mind you). Between that, and my time with my girlfriend, I don't have a lot of time. Crossfit can either be done in groups, or solo. It is quick, intense, and burns far more calories than you'd burn with hours of time on a tredmill or some other crap. Many of the exercises can be done anywhere, even in an office, and dont' require you to go to some big Globo gym. Just check out, and you'll see the daily workouts, free videos describing various movements, and all that jazz. Long story short, it's helped me get back in shape, and still have my insane and stupid schedule. As other said, eating right is key as well. I bring almonds with me to work, and try to eat along the lines of the Zone diet.

Submission + - Top 50 Dystopian Movies of All Time (

Slater writes: This is a list of the Top 50 Dystopian Movies of all time, ranked according to an average of both Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB scores. There have been several similar movie lists but I found this one to be quite thorough and detailed. I'm only recommending this because I along with several other buddies found out about some pretty cool films.. even though we're huge fans of this genre.

Submission + - Unisys Contractor blamed in DHS Data Breaches

An anonymous reader writes: The FBI is investigating a major information technology firm with a $1.7 billion Department of Homeland Security contract after it allegedly failed to detect cyber break-ins traced to a Chinese-language Web site and then tried to cover up its deficiencies, according to congressional investigators.

"The department is the victim not only of cyber attacks initiated by foreign entities, but of incompetent and possibly illegal activity by the contractor charged with maintaining security on its networks," (US Rep. Bennie) Thompson wrote."
