During a phone call, the former CTO told us that the company broke down because the glucose-level-analysis technology was facing issues surrounding the consistency of data readings. When the company dissolved, Apple moved aggressively to hire several C8 MediSensors directors and engineers, including designers and scientists that specialize in machine learning (a form of artificial intelligence that focuses on interpreting forms of data), Hofmeister said. When asked, Hofmeister told us how he believes former C8 employees could benefit Apple. We spent a lot of time working on the technology for gathering data through skin and a lot of time dealing with the optical variance of skin, he said. Anybody who is going to be working on wearable biometric sensors would find the experience of C8 employees invaluable, he added.

For U.S. retirees, fitness lessons from Japan

This is beautiful. Why shouldn't we be out here?" asks Tonia Seidl, a member of a local boot camp that uses Denver public parks, as url quoted by CBS Denver. "We should never discourage exercise. We need to encourage exercise (and) remove every barrier possible," adds Chris Lindley, her trainer. Still, if paid fitness classes obstruct the use of public parks by others who want to use them for free, should they receive priority? Or is the city of Denver merely trying to preserve the intended use of its parks by restricting the use of public parks for profit purposes?

Fitness a requirement for Boy Scout national Jamboree

The staff camp is located about half a mile up a hill, a climb of 200-300 feet -- not a killer hike, but one that will have to be completed at least a couple of times a day, Perez said. Perez noted in the video that hes working to get his own BMI below 32 -- a sign of what Scout officials say is a broader, positive effort to push to get in shape. Our goal is really to inspire kids to lead healthy lifestyles, Ault said. The new requirements were first advertised two years ago. Some youths and adults lost as much as 30 pounds in order to attend the 2013 program, Ault said.

Regular exercise wont likely prolong your life dramatically, but it can improve the quality of your remaining years, said Dr. Edward Schneider, professor of gerontology and medicine at the University of Southern California. Ideally, exercise begun no later than middle age can help people avoid developing conditions like diabetes and heart disease. But physical exertion can also help people manage many chronic conditions after they develop.
