We have all been there. You pack your bags, load up the car and your off for a nice long weekend of relaxation. You get to your destination, unpack and begin to unwind and that's when the thought hits you "Did I leave the coffee machine on?" or "Will someone notice nobody is home and rob me?".

As useful as your smartphone may be, lets face it, the way technology moves forward, they are already a thing of the past. In the not so distant future you will be able to Ditch Your Smart Phone And Get Some Smart Eyes.
The new product that looks like a contact lenses but is built with very small circuits and LEDs, promises to give us all Smart Eyes. Prototypes are already being built and in just a few years this could be a reality. Essentially we will have the power of a mini computer that requires no hands and the display follows you wherever you look.
This sounds like a great idea but I think the largest hurdle will be making a contact lens with these features that is actually comfortable to wear, otherwise they will have a very small market of just geeks like me that want to have terminator vision.

I don't usually share many links that have to do with national news or current events but this story is so weird that I just had to. It seems that Tide Detergent Theft Is Soaring Nationwide! I will repeat that for you, Tide Detergent Theft Is Soaring Nationwide.
This is no joke, I assure you. According to the linked article
Tide has become a form of currency on the streets. The retail price is steadily high — roughly $10 to $20 a bottle — and it’s a staple in households across socioeconomic classes.
Tide can go for $5 to $10 a bottle on the black market, authorities say. Enterprising laundry soap peddlers even resell bottles to stores.
“There’s no serial numbers and it’s impossible to track,” said Detective Larry Patterson of the Somerset, Ky., Police Department, where authorities have seen a huge spike in Tide theft. “It’s the item to steal.”
Everybody has to wash clothes right? I never thought I would be writing an article about a nationwide epidemic of laundry detergent theft. Officials at Tide are trying to keep their hands clean.
“We don’t have any insight as to why the phenomenon is happening, but it is certainly unfortunate,” said Sarah Pasquinucci, a spokeswoman for Procter & Gamble.

Getting started with a running program can be torture. The instinct can be to just put on some shoes and get to it, without a doubt becoming sore and giving up entirely the next day only to force yourself to start again the next week and repeating a habit of short lived motivation followed by pain and quitting altogether.
I have been in this process myself for the last few months so today I was happy to find Beast Health Mag and their Ultimate Running Program For Beginners.
Developed by Jeremy Deere, a champion long distance runner. This Ultimate Running Program For Beginners lays out a program that the beginning or hopeful runner can stick with and succeed with.
It is a four month program, switching the details each month to coincide with your progress. I will be starting this program myself today, as I go I will update my progress and give a review of just how effective it has been for me.
