Researchers say 8 hours of work a week is enough to feel fulfilled. So why won't hustle culture die?
A new study, which found that eight hours of work is all that humans need to be happy, is riling up the commentariat. Indeed, the findings reaffirm what many liberals, leftists and universal basic income advocates believe about work: namely, that we should all be doing less of it, and that if we did, we would be just as happy and more likely happier. The study, from University of Salford and University of Cambridge researchers, published in the journal Social Science and Medicine, was specifically motivated by the belief that automation and technology may sharply reduce the number of jobs t...

Young Americans are racking up debt for Instagrammable weddings
Debt-saddled Americans are giving rise to a new industry of financial tech companies: Those that provide loans for cash-strapped couples to pay for their weddings.

Unlike other types of personal loans (which, in 2019, typically have interest rates between 5% and 36%, according to personal finance site Value Penguin), these loans are specifically for brides and grooms to help pay for their special day. According to the Post, these lenders sa...

Here's How Rapidly You Start to Lose Muscle Once You Stop Lifting Weights
If you think taking a break from working out doesn't make a clear difference in your strength, you're wrong. My first gym session after a trip to Barcelona, where the only exercise I did was walking (and eating paella), was a struggle. The barbell I used to pick up with ease suddenly felt way heavier. (I actually triple checked to make sure I hadn't accidentally grabbed the wrong barbell - nope.) You may know the feeling. Returning to the gym after an extended break can be brutal. "Unfortunately, exercise is truly 'use it or lose it.' If you stop strength training, you'll likely notice decr...

We Asked a Trainer If Planks Burn Belly Fat Here's What She Said
Abs are one of my favorite body parts to train because having a strong core is important, but I also train abs because of vanity purposes. There are countless ab exercises you should do, one of the most popular being the plank. It's friendly to all fitness levels and will no doubt strengthen your core, but if you're trying to burn belly fat, it won't be of much use. The plank works your anterior core - the muscles that make up the front of your core like the rectus abdominis (aka the six-pack). Anterior stability exercises teach you how to avoid too much lumbar extension of the spine, more…
