Low testosterone can make it difficult to lose weight, build muscle, stay motivated, and decrease our libido.

This video will tell you how you can maintain your testosterone as you age and even increase your testosterone naturally. We'll discuss lifestyle changes you can make to boost your testosterone levels such as changing your diet or exercise habits.

Am I a Psychopath? (Psychology Documentary) | Real Stories

Meet Sam Vaknin, author of the book Malignant Self Love. Sam knows he’s a supreme narcissist, but is he also, as he suspects, a psychopath? To find out, he becomes the world’s first civilian volunteer to be thoroughly tested for psychopathy.

Along the way, Vaknin encounters the minefield of scientific, ethical, moral and social issues involved in owning that label. When things don’t quite go his way, he turns on the film-makers, unleashing vicious displays of verbal abuse, and some free psychological analysis of his own.

Then, there's his wife Lidija. She wants a baby, but isn't sure that Sam is suitable parent material. And to make things worse, Lidija’s sister believes she’s been brainwashed by her twelve years with Sam.

I, Psychopath is a classic road trip/head trip movie, with a strong narrative, jeopardy, a cast of engaging characters and an irreverent gonzo style.

Why Cockroaches Are So Hard To Kill

Cockroaches are one of the most widespread and resilient creatures on this planet. They are practically everywhere around us, hiding in the walls, sewers, and perhaps your cupboard. They are also one of the most hated creatures by humans. If you are like most people, you will become determined to kill all of the roaches when you see them in your house. Despite such hatred towards them, how do cockroaches manage to thrive all around the globe?

--------------------------------------------------

Following is the transcript of the video:

You might not want to think about this but over 3,500 species of cockroaches live on this planet.

The good news? Only about 30 of those species have adapted to live around humans.

The bad news? 30 species of cockroaches can live around us!

Roaches are one of the most common pests in the US. So, it's no surprise that humans are always trying to kill them. But no matter how many times we stomp them, squash them, and bomb them with toxic chemicals, these pesky pests always seem to pop up time and time again. So what's going on?

Let's take a closer look at the roach you probably know better than you'd like: Periplaneta Americana. AKA: the American Cockroach.

But this name is misleading. This guy is actually from Africa, not America. It made its way to the US by infesting boats in the 16th century. And has been spreading to almost every corner in the world ever since.

Turns out, it's one of the largest species of cockroach around. But that's not the only big thing about it. New research has revealed that it has a massive genome — one of the largest of any studied insect!

And many of these genes are exactly what make this roach a master survivor. Let's start with its genes associated with something called chemoreception. That's how roaches smell and taste their environment.

Turns out, they're actually way better at sniffing out and eating food than most other insects. The American roach has 154 olfactory receptors for smell and 544 gustatory receptors for taste — more than any other insect on the planet!

As a result, these cockroaches are not picky eaters. Sure, they like cheese, meat, and sugar like the rest of us. But they'll also go for things like cardboard, book bindings, human toenails, rotting meat, blood, excrement, and even each other.

That's right, these roaches have been known to eat other dead or crippled cockroaches — all in the name of survival. It sounds gross, but this diverse diet makes it easy to find a meal just about anywhere, even if it's poisonous to most animals.

This roach has a bunch of genes called cytochrome p450s, which help it withstand poisonous chemicals like peppermint. These genes code for detoxification enzymes, which keep the insects safe.

On top of that, this roach has a super-strong immune system that seeks out and kills harmful microbes and fungi, making the most unsanitary environment look like a 5-star hotel to the American cockroach.

Not gross enough, yet? Well consider this: cockroaches can live for nearly a week without their heads.

Yeah, that's not a myth. They don't have a highly-pressurized network of blood vessels like humans, so they don't bleed out. Instead, their necks actually seal off the opening.

They can't regenerate a whole head, but roaches do have an impressive set of regenerative superpowers. For up to the first two years of its life, the American roach goes through a series of regenerative molts as it matures into an adult. During a single molt stage, it can replace lost limbs. And over a series of molts, it can regrow antennae and even its eyes.

Roaches may be hard to kill, but there's an easy way to help keep them clear of your kitchen — Cleanliness!

A roach won't just survive in unsanitary conditions but actually enjoys it. Its heightened senses mean it actually relishes rotting food.

So, store food in airtight containers, cover trash bins, and keep your basement dry. It might also be smart to plug holes in your walls, unused electrical outlets, and especially drains since — get this — roaches can use your plumbing to climb from sewers to your bathroom sink.

10 Benefits Of Exercise On The Brain And Body - Why You Need Exercise

Why Physical Exercise is Vital for a Healthy Brain and Body.
Physical fitness through exercise is one of the most common pieces of advice offered by medics across the planet. There are many benefits of exercising when done correctly. Some of the most common include improved blood flow, general body fitness, weight loss, and stress relief. This video seeks to focus on some of the direct benefits of physical exercise to the brain and the body.

1 Boost The Memory
Studies conducted on the hippocampus among children, adults and the elderly showed that the brain structure grew after aerobic exercise. The hippocampus is the part of the brain that holds the memory, and therefore crucial for learning abilities.

2 Improve Concentration
Exercise improves the ability to focus on one task, ignore distractions, and also hold and manipulate information. Aerobic exercises improve retention among students, and therefore crucial for children, adults and even the elderly. As well

3 Improve Mental Health
Physical exercise is a great mood enhancer. The feeling of elation experienced after exercise is real and should be used as an alternative stress reliever. A 2010 study conducted for eight weeks showed a significant decrease in the amygdala after yoga and meditation. The amygdala is the part of the brain that is implicated in processing stress, fear and anxiety.

4 Slowing Cognitive Decline
Physical exercise delays the onset of mental wear and tear, and dementia, especially among the elderly. It pays to exercise early in life to avoid mental illnesses that come with old age. A study published on Neurology suggested that women who were physically fit in their middle ages were 88% less likely to develop dementia than their peers who were only moderately fit.

5 Physical Fitness and Weight Loss
A study published in the Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism showed that an active exercise training program was ideal for reducing weight and improving physical fitness among obese children. The effects were possible even without a change in dietary composition.

6 Protection of the Body against Age-related Decline
According to a study published in the Journal of Aging Research suggests that physical activity maintained throughout life is accompanied with a lower risk of developing chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases associated with chronological ageing.

7 Improved Heart and Lung Health
When done on a regular basis, physical activity, both moderate and intense, lowers the risk of developing coronary heart disease. Regular exercise strengthens the heart muscles and their ability to pump blood to the lungs and the rest of the body. The lungs automatically pick up the pace to keep up with the exercise and, therefore, become stronger.

8 Increases Lean Mass and Strength
High-frequency training and low-frequency training both contribute to improvements in lean mass and strength in men and women. Strength training also helps alterations in metabolism, increase in bone density, reduces the risk of injury, and even rebuilds lost muscle. The buildup of muscle is necessary for preventing a resting metabolic rate that causes obesity.

9 Improved Cholesterol Levels
Regular physical activity and exercise are effective in lowering cholesterol levels in the blood and thus prevent the onset of coronary heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. Clinicians can recommend aerobic training, or resistance training to ensure that healthy cholesterol levels are achieved.

10 Prevention and Management of Diabetes
Regular exercise can help delay or prevent the development of type 2 diabetes by 60%. Daily physical activity, aerobic exercise, or resistance training prevents sugar-build up in the blood. Insulin sensitivity increases and the body can take up glucose during and after activity. Any form of physical activity that helps the body burn calories, e.g. walking, cleaning, mowing the lawn is beneficial and should be included in daily routines.
