This is what happens to your body if you drink warm honey-lemon water in the morning

Adding lemon to water not only quenches thirst better than any other beverage, but it also nourishes our body with vitamins, minerals and trace elements which we absolutely need. Lemon with water can be considered the best natural energy booster. When we wake up in the morning, our bodily tissues are dehydrated and are in need of water to push out toxins and rejuvenate the cells. In other words, this homemade “lemonade” helps eliminate internal toxins, regulating proper kidney and digestive tract functions by forcing them to work as smoothly as possible.

Monday Motivation: The Power of a Smile

Erin E. M. Hatton

I’m a smiley person.  But I’ll tell you a secret: I don’t always feel like smiling.  But here are a few things I’ve learned about smiling that might change the way you arrange your face.

Even when you don’t feel it …

I’ve heard it said that if you smile enough, your brain will actually begin to release the chemicals that make you feel happy.  Now this doesn’t mean a fake, cheesy grin.  Actually making your facial muscles imitate a genuine smile after a while will make you really happy.  Is this the epitome of “fake it till you make it”?

Find a reason …

Usually when I don’t feel much like smiling, I look around for a reason to smile.  It might be the smallest thing, like the way the snow looks so pretty on the trees (even though it’s causing major inconvenience today), or the memory of something…

2013 Mac Pro Review: Apple’s New Desktop Boasts Dramatic Redesign, Dramatic Performance

TechCrunch

[tc_dropcap]Apple’s new Mac Pro is a sight to behold: In black aluminum with an eye-catching cylindrical design, there’s little chance you’ll ever mistake it for any other computer. The previous Mac Pro was iconic too, of course, but this one is also just slightly larger than a football and dimpled on the top with a recess like a jet engine. But the true power lies under the hood, and what’s contained therein will satisfy even the most pressing need for speed.[/tc_dropcap]

Google’s Chromebooks Have Hit Their Stride

TechCrunch

It looks like Microsoft was right to worry about Google’s Chromebook project. According to the latest numbers from NPD, Chromebooks accounted for 21 percent of all laptop sales and almost 10 percent of all computer sales to businesses in 2013. That’s up from virtually nothing in the year before. Given that Apple is irrelevant in commercial channel sales (it commanded a whopping 1.8 percent of sales), Chromebook’s increased share is coming at the cost of Windows.

A few years ago, Chromebooks were a bit of a laughing stock. They were underperforming single-purpose laptops that weren’t even good at the only thing they could do (that is, surf the web). Nobody really warmed up to them, despite their low price. Early sales were more than disappointing, and even Google’s few hardware partners looked like they were only doing this as a way to court Google’s favor. The whole project…

Time’s 30 Under 30 list includes many familiar faces

TED Blog

Last week, the editors of Time magazine published a list of 30 people under 30 who are changing the world, with the help of a panel of millennials. On the list: six teenagers and twenty-somethings with TED connections.

We at TED have had youth on the brain recently. TED2013 was themed “The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.” and we’re still riding the emotional high of the TEDYouth conference in New Orleans last month. At the same time, we’re working on an ongoing “Young Voices” series that profiles take-charge young people. So we were very excited to see several familiar faces among Time’s picks.

In order of age, these 30-under-30 champs are much-adored members of the TED community:
