Indoor Tanning is Out - video message from the American Academy of Dermatology

American Academy of Dermatology: Not only can the ultraviolet radiation from indoor tanning beds lead to wrinkles, it also increases the risk of skin cancer, including melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. On an average day, more than 1 million Americans tan in tanning salons. Research shows that nearly 70 percent of indoor tanners are female, primarily 16 to 29 years old.



"Bodies have a way of not keeping up with your brain or your career" - Glover from Deep Purple on approaching retirement

Roger Glover from Deep Purple:

"We're all about late 60s, early 70s, and bodies have a way of not keeping up with your brain or your career. The time is approaching when it will end, but we don't want to face that. We don't actually want to make a date or a final tour or anything. We just want to carry on as long as nature allows or is kind of dignified. If we can't do what we do anymore, then yes, it's time to stop. But we're still doing it, and we're still enjoying it very much. So all we're saying is the door is closing, but it's not closed yet."

"Everything changes and nothing remains still, you cannot step twice into the same stream" vs. Occidentali's Karma

Francesco Gabbani won Festival di Sanremo 2017 with his catchy song “Occidentali’s Karma” (“Westerners’ Karma”) and will represent Italy during Eurovison 2017 song contest. You don't often hear quotes from William Shakespeare and Erich Fromm in the the first two lines of a song:



Excerpts from the lyrics:

"Internet experts,
Honorary members of the selfie-addicted anonymous
Cleverness is out of fashion,
Easy answers,
Pointless dilemmas.

Whatever happens, panta rhei
And 'Singing in The Rain'."

The phrase panta rhei, "everything flows" either was spoken by Heraclitus or survived as a quotation of his. This famous aphorism used to characterize Heraclitus' thought comes from Simplicius, a neoplatonist, and from Plato's Cratylus. The word rhei is the Greek word for "to stream", and is etymologically related to Rhea according to Plato's Cratylus.

The philosophy of Heraclitus is summed up in his cryptic utterance:

"Ever-newer waters flow on those who step into the same rivers."

The quote from Heraclitus appears in Plato's Cratylus twice:

"All entities move and nothing remains still"

and

"Everything changes and nothing remains still ... and ... you cannot step twice into the same stream".
