So, how about those New Year’s resolutions? Or should I say…do you remember your New Year’s resolutions? With today being “Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day”, here’s a friendly reminder that stats show 80% of people who made New Year’s resolutions have tapped out by the second week of January. On the other hand, 8% of people are successful in keeping them on a permanent basis. If you’re one of those who’ve been less-than successful at keeping yours, here are some things you can keep in mind today, as you officially let go of the positive change you tried (and failed) to make, for another year…

1. Celebrate your past achievements: Even though you quit on some goals, that doesn’t make you a failure. You’ve accomplished some great things in the past, and you should value that. So, organize some form of celebration with friends and colleagues, to be encouraged to do better in the future.

2. Revise your goals: This is a perfect time to take an in-depth look into the goals you previously set. This will help recognize the lapses and loopholes in them and to create a better, more effective plan.

3. Teach others: After learning and practicing effective techniques for achieving your goals, help others learn to do likewise. They’ll be grateful, and you’ll be helping them.

A new type of shoes, available this summer, promises to allow you to walk at the speed of your run. The strap-ons, aptly named “Moonwalkers,” feature 8 wheels per shoe to move your feet as if you were on a moving walkway at an airport. For safety, on stairs, or in crowded areas, the wheels don’t move at all. Designed by American tech start-up Shift Robotics, they accelerate normal walking pace to 6.8 mph, around the clip of a comfortable run. No word on price. LINK:

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

With a number of substantial winter storms lately, you may have noticed an increase in drivers who elect to brave their way through the conditions – with their 4-way flashers on. Why? Well, you’d have to ask them. While I’m sure they feel they are increasing their visibility, or sending the signal to other drivers that extra care is needed, but they may be surprised to know that the vast majority of experts advise against the practice. Plus, it’s actually illegal to do so in most US states and Canadian provinces. As pointed out by a specialist in a Reader’s Digest article, drivers should “Realize that in bad weather it is hard enough to see you, but now with no turn signals, other drivers also don’t know where you may be going to.” A Charlotte meteorologist tweeted about driving with hazard lights on after a recent rainstorm: “Please stop! No one knows what you are doing. Are you stalled? Turning left and right? In a funeral procession? Wipers on, lights on, is all you need.” In fact, many experts say if the rain or weather is bad enough to turn on hazard lights, then the driver should assume the conditions are too bad to continue driving the vehicle.

Japanese scientists say they have developed an electric spoon and bowl combination that makes food taste saltier. The team, from Kirin Holdings Company and Meiji University, say their invention uses weak electrical stimulation to enhance the salty taste of low-sodium foods. The “Electric Salt” devices, slated to launch in Japan this year, reportedly increases the salt taste by 1.5 times without raising blood pressure. The Electric Salt Spoon and Electric Salt Bowl use “electric taste sensation” technology, which transmits sodium ions from food to the diner’s mouth, to create a sense of saltiness — without any effect on the human body. The current passes through the food from the tip of the spoon and from the inside of the bowl by holding it, according to the researchers, who have also developed electric chopsticks.
