Robin Williams has warmed our hearts, broadened our faces and drew tears to our eyes. Who knew such a humorous and vivacious character would leave us so soon. From his crazy, imaginative creation of Mork to the heart felt emotions of Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting and the exuberant and camp character of The Birdcage, He lit up the screen in every move and gesture. I could write all night about Robin’s talents or who he was to the public and my own opinion or the slight sadness that his face always expressed but theres nothing I will say that one does not already know. This man was solid in his achievements and his movies will go on to entertain us for generations to come. He truly was one of the greats. He will be sadly missed.

Half of Americans start their day with coffee, and according to recent study, working out after downing a cup of java may offer a weight loss advantage. The Spanish study, published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, found that trained athletes who took in caffeine pre-exercise burned about 15% more calories for three hours post-exercise, compared to those who ingested a placebo.

I watched this documentary last night on BBC Channel 4. I must say I was genuinely moved. It is an astounding documentary of a 1960’s scientist, a woman named Margret and a Dolphin called Peter. It really shows how animals are highly intelligent species and should be treated with the upmost respect. Take a look at the programs review by The Telegraph. Also check out the Woman and Dolphin website where you can here some of the original recordings made at the time of the experiment. I personally haven’t lessened to them yet for fear of it being to emotional (as crazy as it sounds). Maybe lessen first then watch the documentary if you can find the documentary online. You can probably get in on BBC catch up or see some videos on youtube. Such an amazing story, such a beautiful relationship yet such a sad ending.

Each of them are independently controlled for precise tracking at any given time and their true orbital speeds are represented. Aside from keeping you updated on planetary positioning, it also functions as a regular watch with the shooting star indicating the time in hours and minutes.
