24h body clock - groundbreaking discovery

A group of Cambridge scientists have successfully identified the mechanism that drives our internal 24-hour clock, or circadian rhythm. It occurs not only in human cells, but has also been found in other life forms such as algae, and has been dated back millions of years.

"The implications of this for health are manifold. We already know that disrupted clocks – for example, caused by shift-work and jet-lag – are associated with metabolic disorders such as diabetes, mental health problems and even cancer."

A second study identified a similar 24-hour rhythm in marine algae. This groundbreaking research shows that body clocks are ancient mechanisms that have stayed with us through a billion years of evolution.

Recession - Time to recover

This is an intersting graph comparing the time to recover from a recession. I think it would be equally interesting to view the opposite; Boom - Time to turn. Also it would be interesting to see how the stockmarket reacted. Their job is to know what will be known, soon.
