health & fitness: How long does it take to fall out of shape?
I’ve been out of the exercise routine for almost a month now. I haven’t gained much weight since I stopped and fascinatingly, I felt like I even lost a few pounds more since I arrived in Geneva.

green lifestyle: Signs of a green hypocrite by Lori Bongiorno
Recycles regularly, but shops constantly and uses a lot of disposables. Buys only organic food, but eats meat at every meal. Owns a hybrid, but drives all around town alone. Built a green house, but it’s enormous and it’s a second home. Takes an eco-vacation, but flies thousands of miles in first-class to get there. Carries reusable grocery bags, but fills them with bottled water and packaged junk (blame Migro and all the rest of the supermarkets!). Who’s guilty? Raise your hands.
