A team of researchers found that Chinese Americans die younger than expected "if they have a combination of disease and birth year which Chinese astrology and medicine considers ill-fated." That is to say, if they were born in a year that was astrologically linked to poor lung health, they would die an average of five years earlier from lung-related disease than someone born in some other year with the same disease. Similar effects were not found in the white populations around them. And how much sooner you died depended on the people's "strength of commitment to traditional Chinese culture."

One thing to note is that you should set up a cache_store that works for you. The default store is disk storage, which might slow down accesses if you put lots of objects in your cache. Disk storage is slow to access, anyway.

As I document in my new book "The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon," even today parts of the Amazon--a wilderness area virtually the size of the continental United States--remain unknown. The Brazilian government estimates that there are more than sixty tribes that are secluded in the jungle.

The other Greek root in the definition of "philosophy" is wisdom. Wisdom is the understanding of when to love and when to fight. Wisdom is about finding balance. It is the understanding that the solution to a problem contains the conceptual whole in different measures.

Math Competitions: We host several competitions through the year to try and produce results for continuing students. These events should also be viewed as a way to attract and work with potential new students. In particular, Math Kangaroo and our Russian School Olympiad are great events to open to all students (whether currently enrolled or not). Principals should advertise them locally, prepare marketing materials for interested parents who show up and make themselves available to answer questions before and after testing. In some branches they even offer a presentation about our program to parents while the kids are engaged in the competitions. These tactics seem especially useful in newer markets as a means of advertising our brand among competition-oriented families. In established markets, most of the families who come already know about us- we just aren't the right fit for them so there is a lower rate of conversion on families. To this end, some existing branches have even considered restricting non-RSM students from participating.

"Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it." -Mahatma Gandhi It's personal. It's private. And it's no one's business but yours. You may be planning a political campaign, discussing your taxes, or having a secret romance. Or you may be communicating with a political dissident in a repressive country. Whatever it is, you don't want your private electronic mail (email) or confidential documents read by anyone else. There's nothing wrong with asserting your privacy. Privacy is as apple-pie as the Constitution.
