If your New Year’s resolution is already in the rearview mirror, you’re not alone: Research has shown that about 30% of resolution-makers give up on their goal before they even reach the two-week mark. But just because you’ve already slacked on your new diet, exercise plan or organization scheme doesn’t mean you’ll never succeed, says John Norcross, a professor of psychology at the University of Scranton and an expert in behavior change and resolutions. “Early slips do not predict failure,” says Norcross, who also authored the study about resolutions. “In fact, many ultimatel...

Why Cardiostim is Cancelled This Year
The cardiac electrophysiology community has lost an opportunity for professional development and networking that typically drew thousands from the sector to Nice, France every two years. The organizers of Cardiostem, which was expected to take place in June, have pulled the plug on the meeting.  The driving factor in the decision to cancel Cardiostim seems to be a recent decision by the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), part of the European Society of Cardiology, to end its 12-year partnership with Cardiostim. The EHRA has decided to host its own annual congress instead, called Europace, which is schedule...

Starwatch: close approach to Earth will bring us a supermoon
But total lunar eclipse on 31 January won ’t be visible in UKThe full moon on 31 January coincides with the Moon ’s closest approach to Earth. This means that it will appear slightly larger and therefore slightly brighter than normal. In recent years, this phenomenon has become known as a supermoon. Supermoons are around 7% bigger and up to 30% brighter than other lunar appearances. Although these increases are hardly noticeable to the eye, it is nice to gaze up and know the Moon is near its closest point to Earth, an altitude of around 224,000 miles (360,000km).Continue reading...

New year. New lungs.
I’ve had asthma and chronic lung disease since I was very young. I had to use everything — from my head to my toes — to help me breathe. I remember being able to hear myself wheezing, to feel my lungs rattling. I had marks all over my face from my oxygen mask. I thought I would never be clear of mucus and never be able to walk without being out of breath. All I ever wanted was to breathe. I spent so much energy trying to breathe that I didn’t have much left for eating, so I was really skinny. I spent a lot of time in a wheelchair.
