Here's How an Overworked Computer Engineer Accidentally Discovered the Little-Known 'Secrets' to Build Muscle and Lose Fat



I’d had enough of my unhealthy lifestyle… I didn’t exercise … I had a two hour commute to my hospital IT job in Chicago… I had a wife and 2 kids (4 & 7)


And most of the fitness advice I read was geared towards guys who had the time to workout 6 days a week. 


But after a LOT of research and trial and error, I finally figured out how to burn fat and build muscle while still maintaining my busy lifestyle. The result is "The Science of Getting Ripped"


This is my step-by-step manual I created for busy guys that want to burn fat, build muscle, get stronger, and increase their athleticism and power. I share the secrets and tips that regular guys can use to get in incredible shape. This is not a typical "bodybuilding" book because it's geared towards regular guys with busy lives.

Jacket madness: A splendid collection of album art from the 1960s to the 90s
 
Record covers are a sign of our life and times. Like the music on the discs, they address such issues as love, life, death, fashion, and rebellion. For music fans the covers are the expression of a period, of a particular time in their lives. Many are works of art and have become as famous as the music they stand for—Andy Warhol's covers, for example, including the banana he designed for The Velvet Underground. 

This edition of Record Covers presents a selection of the best rock album covers of the 60s to 90s from music archivist, disc jockey, journalist, and former record-publicity executive Michael Ochs’s enormous private collection.

Book Review

On September 6, 2007, an African Grey parrot named Alex died prematurely at age thirty-one. His last words to his owner, Irene Pepperberg, were "You be good. I love you."

What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex's case, headline news. Over the thirty years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous—two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds. Alex's brain was the size of a shelled walnut, and when Irene and Alex first met, birds were not believed to possess any potential for language, consciousness, or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. Yet, over the years, Alex proved many things. He could add. He could sound out words. He understood concepts like bigger, smaller, more, fewer, and none. He was capable of thought and intention. Together, Alex and Irene uncovered a startling reality: We live in a world populated by thinking, conscious creatures.

The fame that resulted was extraordinary. Yet there was a side to their relationship that never made the papers. They were emotionally connected to one another. They shared a deep bond far beyond science. Alex ...
