NASA Could Have People Living on the Moon in 8 Years. And That ’s Just the Beginning
The moon is a very patient place. It once was a very busy place. Early in its long history, a constant bombardment of space debris left it with great lava bleeds that formed its so-called seas and tattooed it with thousands of craters that endure today. The shooting eventually stopped and the moon fell quiet, and for billions of years it did more or less nothing at all, while the blue-white, watery world just next door bloomed and thrived and exploded with life. And then, for a tiny blink of time, the moon hosted life too. Over the course of four years, from December 1968 to December 1972, nine crews of human beings orbite...

An Earlier Dinner May Lower Risk Of Some Cancers, Study Says
(CNN) — People who eat dinner before 9 p.m. — or at least two hours before going to sleep — have a 20% lower risk of breast and prostate cancer than those who eat after 10 p.m. or go to bed shortly after supper, researchers found. “The mechanisms are not clear,” said Dr. Manolis Kogevinas, a research professor at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health in Spain and lead author of a new study on the topic. “What we know from experimental studies is that we are conditioned to function in different parts of the day.

This Simple Trick Will Make You Happier and Better at Your Job
Tech startups are famous for installing nap pods and break rooms to attract Millennial workers. But most people work in offices where slipping off for a snooze or a foosball match would put a big dent in their promotion prospects. Even for self-employed or remote workers who don’t have a boss peering over their shoulder, taking anything more than a lunch break during work hours is anathema. But this “all work and no play” ethos may be harming employee health and productivity. The latest evidence suggests that taking short breaks during the work day makes employees happier and better at their jobs. A rece...

Just how much public service workers are spending on rent
In most parts of the UK, the price of renting a home has risen steadily, while public sector salaries… well, they haven’t. This rise in rents combined with pay cuts has resulted in a situation that, for many, is simply unsustainable. UNISON has investigated just how much public sector workers are spending on rent. Our new analysis looks specifically at five public sector jobs – an porter in NHS England, a special needs teaching assistant, a refuse driver, a nurse and a police community support officer – and how much of their monthly salary they have to spend on rent, depending on where they live. i...

Women Who Work Long Hours Are More Likely To Develop Diabetes
BOSTON (CBS) – A warning for ladies who burn the midnight oil. A new study finds that women who work long hours are more likely to develop diabetes. Canadian researchers studied more than 7,000 adults over 12 years. They found that women who consistently worked at least 45 hours a week had a 63-percent higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who worked 35 to 40 hours a week. It is unclear why but they say long hours may lead to chronic stress in the body, triggering the release of hormones that raise blood sugar levels. Interestingly, the researchers did not find the same association between long work ho...

Following the Great Recession and the rise of the app-driven gig economy, more and more American workers have found themselves jettisoned from traditional office spaces and thrust into jobs that require them to work remotely, at least some of the time.
