My friends have just launched the UK version of a fun, new and exciting dance workout – Hot Hula Fitness® based around Polynesian drum beats fused with funky Reggae music, resulting in a modern, hip fitness workout.
I know these stories keep cropping up but a new report says that radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
More can be found here over at CNN interesting points that are mentioned in the manuals of some leading phones (RTFM) :-
The Apple iPhone 4 safety manual says users’ radiation exposure should not exceed FCC guidelines: “When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 millimeters (5/8 inch) away from the body.”
BlackBerry Bold advises users to “keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 inch (25 millimeters) from your body when the BlackBerry device is transmitting.”
Looks like a boom time for bluetooth and hands free devices if this story grows ;
The Story of Bottled Water video which was released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand and how it gets Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.

This video is to promote a new season from the BBC called “Superpower” which launches on 8 March, in the video “the people of the internet” are portrayed as extraterrestrial figure sending messages to the people of Earth, showing how important the internet has become to civilisation and its impact on how we live.
This young lad is Giuliano Stroe, from Romania who has just broke a new world record for number of “air push-ups.” He is only 5 years old and this is his second entry in the Guinness book of World Records.
Reminds me of myself in my younger days don’t think I could manage more than 10 though these days 😉
Can’t say anymore than first comment – apparently its China – something needs to be done over there regarding smoking and everywhere else!
Don’t take the above title literally but some of the guys who set up lovefilm have set up a new venture Graze the idea being they make it easier for people to eat healthily at work/home and combine this with value – they deliver a full letterbox sized box of healthy food (nuts, berries, dried fruit etc) straight to your door.
Interesting concept not sure how it will scale and not without a little competition but the guys behind it should be able to make it work:-
Although these two are not exactly Letterbox deliveries;
One to keep an eye on 🙂
Not quite Benny Hill but Ernie The Fastest Organic Milkman In The West makes a return as all that’s old seems to be the new-new!
Delivering organic milk to customers’ doors in glass milk bottles, is coming back as the Manhattan Milk Company is reviving old-fashioned dairy delivery.
For a $5 delivery charge, Manhattanites can get a weekly delivery of fresh milk. The company’s driver loads up his truck on Wednesdays at 4 am and delivers to all of Manhattan, picking up empty bottles when he drops off the full ones. The milk is sourced from 51 Amish farms in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, about 160 miles southwest of New York City.
Maybe we will see this regeneration grow combining dairy delivery with locally supported agriculture ventures that deliver organic fruit and veg from farms to households across the world – with eco delivery systems?
Think about it convenience, charm, organic and local all combined with green credentials!!
This is definitely not the kind of publicity Burger King needs it shows an employee celebrating his birthday by taking a bath in the washing up sink of a local Burger King restaurant in Ohio.
He is seen in a bubble bath pouring water over himself with a sanitizing solution bucket. The video taper actually reported the incident to the manager who ignored the whole thing and continued to count cash.
Burger King has taken swift action to get rid of all the contaminated articles and dealt with the employees involved in the video.
The remaining staff have been given appropriate health and sanitation training 🙂
