NASA find life on other planet?

Well... not exactly. But they did find a planet that has the ability to do so. NASA's planet-hunting telescope named Kepler has found a planet 600 light years away. To put that length in a little more understandable distance it takes light 1.3 seconds to travel from the Earth to the Moon. So, the planet is really really really far away. The telescope has discovered over 2,000 planets in its 13 months of searching so far. About 1,000 of those seem to be a fairly good planet that could someday have life. Maybe there is hope for us to find aliens some day? Who knows.

To find out more about this planet here is a Yahoo! article

Broken Heart Syndrome

No. I didn't make this syndrome up; it's real. There has been a study on why women deal with heartbreak worse than men. It's pretty obvious women deal with heartbreak worse, but these researchers wanted to know why and by how much. The article was posted on time's website. In a summary, it says that Broken Heart Syndrome is similar to a heart attack (swelling of the heart, shortness of breath, etc.) but the reasons for a heart attack aren't there (clogged artery, etc.) so a heart attack doesn't occur. Regardless, it isn't healthy for a heart. So next time someone blames you for trying to not get your heart broken just say that you are practicing a healthy lifestyle ;). How do you get over a heartbreak? Apparently the old tale is true: TIME. So ladies, next time you experience heart break just give it some time, research proves it heals the heart =).

Here is the full article.

First Post

So, I was never big on blogging. I don't follow many blogs. I feel like it's a waste of time, but then I thought of something. I always see inspiring videos and articles online. And I always want to post them on facebook but then I feel like a total facebook whore. So I'm going to put on here inspiring and intellectual topics I feel are important.

First subject? Are humans still evolving. According to this article they are. I have always wondered this, especially after taking many evolution classes in college. I think this article is very interesting and I hope you enjoy it =)
