First Lady Michelle Obama is a world record holder, and she didn’t even have to anything weird like stuff a bunch of quarters up her nose or run around in her underwear, which is what less presidentially-connected folks have been doing recently to set world records.

Instead, she set her mark in a recent event in which 300,000 kids in locations around the world joined her in doing jumping jacks, shattering the previous record of 20,000 people doing jumping jacks in a 24 hour period. Now, the Guinness Book of Records has confirmed that Michelle is a world record holder.

Monday Morning Anger Management [VIDEO]

Why is it that Mondays always seem to be the same? Computer problems, co-workers calling in sick, equipment malfunctions, last minute surprise meetings and the little anger monster lurking around our shoulders just waiting to send things into a downward spiral. So if your Mondays start off or end the same, here’s a video that will help put things into perspective. I recommend, instead of a violent temper tantrum try running to the store for a soda, the doughnut store, the ice-cream shop, your favorite fast food place for a shake or float and remember that destroying your computer just might help you find the unemployment line. These guys are way over the top, while I watch this I’m left wondering what exactly went so wrong? Is the computer the real problem or are our employers to blame for the added stress?

Yawning Is Contagious The Proof Is In This Video [VIDEO]

When I first got up this morning I couldn’t stop yawing, in fact it was a symphony of yawns that stayed with me until I ran into another unsuspecting bystander, my wife and I looked right at her and I yawned. With in minutes she was yawning and I quickly left the room so that I would not be getting the yawns back on me. It was now my wife’s turn to find an innocent bystander and let the contagious yawn loose on them and run like a mad man. It’s true, Yawns are contagious just like the flu and the plague and I know it’s true because I found it on the internet. And this video on the Symphony of Yawns will prove it.

The group tried to to modify dietary behavior by incorporating a web-based computer-tailored intervention program. The program aimed to increase physical activity, decrease sedentary behavior, and promote healthy eating among adolescents.

Health Benefits To Halloween Candy [VIDEO]

Halloween is here ,and as a parent I have one main concern, Halloween candy. It’s not that I’m totally against it, it’s that my child gets so hyper every time she consumes any extra sugar. So what is a parent to do? I don’t want to deprive her of it because that causes the “forbidden fruit complex.” While researching this, I discovered a few ways to make Halloween 2011 as struggle-free as possible.

Remember when we first learned that dark chocolate has health benefits? Chewing gum is actually good for dental health and also reduces hunger and sugar cravings. Ginger based candies help with the digestive system. Not to mention all the sugar-free based candies.
