Russians To Create Nuclear Powered Train?

Russians are a lot smarter than one might think.  Especially with the American education system the way it is.  Right now, Russia ranks ahead of us in Advanced Math and Science.  The only grades we do better than them in is 4th grade, the elementary years.  From there, things just go down hill for many Americans.

Just the thought of Nuclear powered things tend to create a lot of buzz and quite a bit of interesting conversation.  A nuclear powered train is no exception, certainly one to talk to your friends about.  Here is an excerpt from the article…

“Russian Railways (RZhD) and the Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency (Rosatom) intend to create a nuclear-powered train, reports Interfax.

According to RZhD vice-president Valentin Gapanovich, the train, consisting of 11 carriages, will house scientific exhibits.

The estimated cost of construction is as yet unknown, as well as the safety measures for such transport.

In the middle of the 20th Century the transport industry almost fell in love with the idea of nuclear-powered vehicles.”

Seems like America has some catching up to do.  Click on the image to be taken to the original article…

Think Americans Pay Less Taxes Than Europe? Think Again

Think you pay fewer taxes than Europeans?  Think again, with all the hidden taxes, and cost that Europeans get from paying their taxes, most Americans might actually pay more than Europeans.  At least most Americans get less for the same amount of money that they spend.  If Americans wanted to provide the same quality of life that Europeans did, we could theoretically do it for less, if certain people weren’t so greedy.

The only ones that get the true European Life Style are the Politicians in America.  They get better Healthcare for less money, better retirement plans, and pay less taxes than we do.  How is that possible?  Most Americans think Europeans are unhappy with their high taxes, but why is it that Americans are unhappy with the quality of life they are receiving?  Most Europeans are actually quite happy with their lifestyle.

If you think you’ve got it tough, then perhaps you’ll want to consider moving to France or England.  Much better lifestyles over there, fewer work hours during the week and less stress.  Staying healthier has never been easier in Europe where they have huge Organic Food movements.  They are much smarter than us too, Americans healthcare and education systems are in turmoil.  Maybe it’s time for change?

Perhaps it’s time we started looking at not “If we should raise taxes,” but how the government is spending our taxes?

For example, if we took all that money that the government was giving to corporations just to encourage corporations to have Healthcare Insurance, and instead paid for everyone’s Doctor visit to the Doctors Office, then more people would go see their Doctor.

So, it’s not if the taxes should be raised, it’s more or less how you look at it.  If you look at it from different perspectives, you’ll find out just how much BS really goes on in the Government.  You’ll find out just how much you’re being lied to.

Biggest Reasons Why Americans Are Overweight!

Americans are said to be the most over weight, but many have a hard time figuring out why.  Why is it that many Americans are starting to be overweight and in worse health than the previous generation?  I think I have the answer.

Reason 1

Exercise….
Many Americans nowadays aren’t getting enough exercise.  That’s right, something as simple as exercise can have a big impact on our daily lives.  In the movie WALL-E, the people roamed around on hover chairs.  Who needs a wheel chair right?  Especially when the machine will do all the work for you.

Is that the kind of life style we want?  To be subjects who are limited in our mobility based on some machine?  Right now many kids are experiencing this because of Parents not letting their kids play in the park.  Instead, they’ll let them play Video Games all day and do nothing.

Now, before you go bashing Video games and start blaming the games themselves, maybe you should take a closer look a parenting.  I play Video Games myself, but that doesnt’ mean that Nerds can’t be fit.  I in fact have started a Cardio Routine, which will eventually turn into running, which in turn will turn into a Marathon.

I have goals, kids nowadays, don’t.  That’s partly because parents let their kids spend too much time playing Video Games as apposed to….well, playing.

Reason 2

Over Indulging…..
Many restaurants have started (in the last decade)  increasing portion sizes.  Now, they even go as far as encourage you to get a large or (in some cases) super-size.  In this case, bigger isn’t always better.  Tell me something.

Do you feel better now that you’re bigger?  Again, bigger isn’t always better.  My parents often times make two meals out of one meal when they go out to eat.  Why?  Many of these meals are filled with Calories.  Many of them over 1,000 calories.  That’s half a days Calories for most.

Still think Bigger is Better?

Reason 3

Quality of Food
Our food quality has reduced in the last 10-20 years drastically.  Farmers are basically killing the land that they farm one with all the chemicals that they spray on plants.  Therefore, we’re forced to look for alternatives: plants that are bug resistant, plants that yield more, and even plants that grow better in certain climates.

When you start tampering with plants: spraying chemicals, changing DNA strands, making them more volatile, something has to give.  So, where do we suffer?  In Nutritional Value.  I can’t stress this enough….

Life is too precious to tamper with.  By tampering with those plants, they’re tampering with our health.  Empty calories adds to our over all weight.  Really.  What else is our body going to use useless calories for?

So, my question for you today is, did this inspire you?  If so, what are your plans for taking action?
