Toa Heftiba 1. Stop consuming caffeine Although people think they perform better on caffeine, the truth is, why — not from external stimulants.The scientific backing is substantial and unsurprising: Tony has a morning routine that includes several breathing exercises and visualization techniques that get him to a state of clarity and focus. For me, I use prayer and pondering (my version of meditation) as the same vehicle. Whatever your approach, the goal should be clarity and focus. What do you want to be about
Washington (CNN)A former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI after he lied about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government -- the campaign's clearest connection so far to Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

Image: sorbetto/Getty imagesIt’s one of business’ most brutal truths. Not to mention one of its most paradoxical. And it happens — in the words of legendary founder Ben Horowitz — “all the time.” “A founder develops a breakthrough idea and starts a company to build it. The product succeeds, and the company grows. Then … employees start complaining that the CEO is paying too much attention to what the employees can do better without her and not enough attention
Following the shock revelations about long-time Hollywood director Harvey Winestien’s sexual misconduct, people began to share their stories about being sexually harassed on social media using the hashtag #MeToo to highlight the fact that it’s an epidemic.

Viner Boys Prank ur neighbor as you'd prank urself . — josh o. (@jjoshkennedyy) September 30, 2017 Viner Boys (rip) are a national treasure and they should be supported financially by the government for the mental health benefit of the country. Some days vines are the only reason I can get out of bed, frankly. Viners wear keds without socks, flat brim baseball hats, and stained t-shirts.

(CNN)It has become a predictable affair. A mass shooting happens, there is a call for tighter gun laws and then it's business as usual.The UK has some of the world's strictest gun-ownership laws and it is now rare for civilians to own private firearms.The turning point for the country came in 1996, when 43-year-old Thomas Hamilton used legally owned handguns to kill 16 children, all ages 5 and 6, as well as a teacher, before taking his own life.The

With nearly 200 mobile zoos in the UK, it seems that those who run "exotic animal" parties for kids will now need an official license before they can work. This was down to the fact that animal protection society the RSPCA had picked up on animals being mistreated and kept in inappropriate living conditions. They told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire television show that this included meerkats and even raccoons. The new changes will come under the Animal Welfare Act 2006
People living in the British constituency Hayes and Harlington, in Greater London, will be the most affected by the upcoming Intelligence Revolution.

Meanwhile, citizens of Edinburgh South can feel relatively secure in their professional callings. Apparently they're the least at risk with only 21.8 percent of jobs in danger of being automized
Times Square at duskImage: Getty ImagesThe authors of "Killing Marketing" say if you don’t evolve, you’ll die “Marketing and innovation produce results,” wrote Peter Drucker, “all the rest are costs.” Sadly, in a world where over half of all digital advertising—an industry expected to hit $75.6 billion by the close of 2017—won’t be seen by an actual human… that assessment no longer stands.

It’s day 30 of my LSD microdosing experiment, and although I don’t feel anything unusual rippling through my consciousness, my cognitive tests are showing that something is definitely up: According to my mood scores, I’ve become deliriously happy, and a fantasia of fictitious fauna has begun to leak from some exotic region of my psyche. Admittedly, this homespun research project carries none of the credibility of a lab-based clinical trial, and nothing but a good old splotch on a
