Thought for the month

“You always own the option of having no opinion. There is never any need to get worked up or to trouble your soul about things you can't control. These things are not asking to be judged by you. Leave them alone.”
Marcus Aurelius Antonius, Emperor and Stoic philosopher (121-180).

Will wearable fitness devices out-smart the static allure of the television or is diet, not technology, the culprit?
