  • A song of silence - Dairy in a healthy lifestyle

    Quality time needed to read: 7 minutes

    A song of silence
    Health benefits of dairy in a fit and active life


    For quite a few years, some health 'experts' tried to steer people away from consuming dairy products, Like it was a stain of venom tainting peoples health with the plague of obesity and diabetes. Other child hood horror stories where told about milk and dairy making guys more female thanks to the cow´s natural estrogen found in dairy products. But personally i have been saying for a very long time that anyone being serious about their health and keeping fit and active should in fact embrace and include ecologically and animal friendly produced dairy in their daily food.

    Fit and active vs Aging
    The Science of Health

    While we have always had fit and healthy people running around the vast regions of this planet all the way from the stone age when we first started to cook our food all through every stage of our human history, it really isn't until now that we have truly started to understand the science of it all.
    Not just the science of being fit and how to best attain it. But the science of improving life and health itself by keeping active and healthy is now dropping its veil in never before seen ways.

  • The Science of shaping your Gluteus for better health and fitness: Hip Thrust

    A fit ass
    will benefit your entire body
    The Science of a healthy life

    Squat, Deadlifts, Lunges. The holy trinity of leg and ass workouts. And for good reason. They shape you, push you, and evolve your entire body and health better than anything else out there. But, there are of course a lot of other exercises out there that also work. One of those is the odd bird called 'Hip thrust'. And while I usually prefer compound exercises over smaller and more focused exercises this is actually a wonderful exercise for keeping your ass not just fit and toned, but as a side effect your entire body healthy and strong as well. In fact, as far as your gluteus go, Hip thrust is scientifically speaking the number one exercise when it comes down to isolating & activating that delicious looking thing that is your ass.

    The Science of a healthy life

    We all know that seafood has the potential to stand right next to chicken ( and insects :P ) as the by far healthiest meat options. But seafood is not at all an easy choice since it has it´s fair share of major issues. Over fishing, depleted and completely unsustainable fish stocks. Insane amount of human caused pollution in the sea ( which affect both our own health as well as the health of a long range of animal species ), lackluster nutritional information, and even human slavery. There is a lot of reasons why anyone conscious enough to live a healthy and active lifestyle would choose to not include seafood in their daily food choices.

    So, how about the best thing? The taste and texture and nutrition of shrimps, but without all the negative side effects of the fishing industry?.
    Enter, eco friendly and sustainable algae-based, vegan shrimps.

    Biceps & Triceps workout
    'Like a Viking'
    The Science of a healthy life

    This weeks biceps and triceps workout took place today and I decided to switch some minor things up, resulting in a wonderful and sweaty challenge.
    After 5 set of close grip bench press for triceps I decided to create one giant set by combining dips ( triceps ) and barbell curls ( biceps ) with a special biceps pull up version of "hanging leg raises". I repeated this giant set 3 times before finishing my workout with 3 set of biceps dumbbell curls for each arm ( no rest between sets for those dumbbells ) and one more set of hanging leg raises.

    In addition, todays workout ended with 5 minute of sprint intervals and 20 minute of mma.

    2016 years Environmental Performance Index tells us in one more way, what we already know, and that is that Scandinavia is one hell of a wonderful place to live. The world's four best nations according to the index are all Scandinavians with Finland, Iceland, and Sweden being the only 3 nations in the world with an EPI score above 90.
    ( All three still have plenty of room to improve much more, and obviously do need to improve much more. )
    And just behind that trio, ranked as number four in the world is Denmark. So, just what is the Environmental Performance Index? Read on to find out.

  • The wild animals we live and work with in mutual symbiosis. African honey hunters and the honeyguide bird

    Quality time needed: 6 minutes

    Mutual symbiosis
     Wild animals and Homo Sapiens
    The Science of a healthy life

    Once, we hunted with wild wolves. Not from domestication or forced cooperation. But instead, humans and equally wild wolves formed a natural and mutually beneficial symbiosis between two predatory species. Just as how we and wolves, once hunted together with wild ravens in the cold north. Fast forward to 2016, and this natural evolution that at times have allowed humans to work together with wild animals have given us another wonderful cross species partnership.

    This time, the greater honeyguide bird species and human honey hunters in northern Mozambique, Africa are the ones that work in tandem to conquer the sweet treasures of African bees. And unlike so many other animal/people relations, this is a real partnership benefitting both species equally much and initiated by the birds as often as it is by the human honey hunters.

    Vertical Cities and 'smart' Farming
    Sustainable progress & technology

    High up, in our ivory-like tower of glass, each evening we look out at the setting sun and how it after a long day of traveling, in the end, as always slowly dips each and every one of its rays of light into the watery ocean far beneath our toes and view.

    The evening sky and rolling landscape change their hue under the traversing basking light, and in the water, a rainbow of countless shades paints an illuminating backdrop to our goodbye and good night to the day that was.

    This unfolds while somewhere else in our sheltered home.

  • Healthy living: Farming 2.0 vs 'fossil fuel' farming.

    Quality time needed: 11 minutes

    Farming 2.0 is high tech, healthy, animal friendly & sustainable
    The Science of a healthy life

    Some might think that organic farming is a tired old buzzword from past times that promises to ruin the life of farmers and cheat customers of their money. And yes, organic farming is harder to do for the farmer, costs money initially to adapt to, and often times our broken food industry make the up front cost for the customer at checkout higher as well. But, Farming 2.0 is a step forward, making use of high tech, automation and the very latest science to make farming more ecological and efficient, while making the end product healthier to eat for the end customer. And is that not the future?

    A better one that is.

    Farming 2.0 is friendlier towards the animals, the planet, the customer, and the farmers. Helping us all increase the amount of healthy food being produced, while we lower the resource drain, pollution and adverse health effects of "fossil fuel" farming. In the end costing society, this planet, and you and me far less than the real cost of the unsustainable,. low quality crap that "fossil fuel" farming produce.

    Shell is divesting & that is wonderful
    The Science of a healthy life

    June, 2016 dirty oil company Shell surrendered its oil exploration licenses in the Canadian Arctic, paving way for the creation of a much bigger and better protected marine park for whales, walruses and seals.

    Shell has recently withdrawn from exploration in Alaska and Norway, and now its rights to drill in the area east of Lancaster Sound has been handed over to the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
    A good will and thing to do for Shell, but also a wonderful thing for all of us. As is the roughly 10 percent of it´s oil and gas assets that shell is currently divesting ( but still just 10%, common guys, you can do so much better business than oil and gas, aim higher, transform, and go big).

    Video Review, Nikon D500
    The Science & Art of photography

    In short: This is a wonderful video review of the newly released Nikon D500 dslr. Comprehensive, to the point and made with both passion and knowledge. It is not about test charts but about all the things that actually matter for a real photographer out in the field doing real work ( or art ). The spoiler verdict is that the Nikon D500 ends up being more or less called Nikons best wildlife camera to date, not perfect but the best one yet unless you absolutely do need the small but real ISO advantage of the Nikon D4 and D5.
