Olga had the humbling experience of living in poverty.
She was born Olga Konstantinovna Kurylenko on November 14, 1979, in Berdyansk, Ukraine, Soviet Union. Her mother, Marina Alyabysheva, divorced her father, Konstantin Kurylenko, soon after her birth. After the divorce her mother struggled to survive as an art teacher. Young Olga was brought up by her mother and her grandmother, Raisa. During her youth Olga had the humbling experience of living in poverty; she had no choice but to wear rags and had to darn the holes on her sweater.

Which is the greenest, happiest country in the world?
Is life on this planet getting better? When it comes to the progress of nations, how do you measure what matters most? There’s wealth, there’s health, there’s basic human freedoms. These criteria, and others, make regular appearances in a variety of international rankings, from the Better Life Index to the Sustainable Economic Development Assessment and the World Happiness Report.
But a new study takes a different approach. The Happy Planet Index, which has just published its 2016 edition, measures health and happiness not in isolation but against a crucial new gold standard for success: sustainability.
The formula goes something like this: take the well-being and longevity of a population, measure how equally both are distributed, then set the result against each country's ecological footprint.

Various technical terms are used for describing the form and arrangement of flowers.
Classical angiosperm phylogeny is based mainly on flower anatomy, and in particular, the arrangement and form of the principle parts. The fruiting body is used as well, but its structure is often apparent in the flowers. More recently, genetic studies have been employed to determine the relationship of various botanical groups to each other.

A Gin Martini for a Green Thumb
At Olmsted, everything ”from the menu to the cocktail list to the name” revolves around the garden.
Tucked behind chef and owner Greg Baxtrom's charming new restaurant in Brooklyn's Prospect Heights neighborhood, the garden (run by farmer and partner Ian Rothman) includes seating, a U-shaped bed of radishes currently being used in gazpacho, and plenty of herbs like thyme, rosemary, and mint. Watched over by two quails (They're pets, the general manager assured us on a recent visit), who live in a custom house in a back corner, it's also a source of ingredients and inspiration for the restaurant's cocktail menu.

Signs you´re rich, even if it doesn´t feel like it.
Rich is relative.
Maybe you think it means being in the top 1% of earners in some of the wealthiest cities in the US. Maybe it means being able to buy a flashy mansion or spend your life flitting from luxury vacation to luxury vacation.
But former investment banker Kristin Addis told Business Insider she feels richer earning about 40% of her previous six-figure salary while she travels the world. Nick and Dariece Swift, who also left their jobs to make a fraction of their former income, said theyÂ´re happier earning less. The self-made millionaire stars of ´West Texas Investor´s Club´ say their relationships are more valuable than the money they earn.

Psychology has identified three mindsets shared by people who actually follow through goals
I've never been an athletic or active person. My entire history of sports involved one season of track in high school and a brief flirtation with what I thought was a yoga studio but turned out to be more of a cult. But then, in my mid-30s, I had two children and gained 30 pounds. I was suffering from chronic back pain, and I knew something needed to change. Image from http://salesactivities.com/

A brain breakthrough that offers new hope for Parkinson's and depression
Brains "even relatively simple ones like those in mice" are daunting in their complexity. Neuroscientists and psychologists can observe how brains respond to various kinds of stimuli, and they have even mapped how genes are expressed throughout the brain. But with no way to control when individual neurons and other kinds of brain cells turn on and off, researchers found it very difficult to explain how brains do what they do, at least not in the detail needed to thoroughly understand and eventually cure conditions such as Parkinson's disease and major depression.
Scientists tried using electrodes to record neuronal activity, and that works to some extent. But it is a crude and imprecise method because electrodes stimulate every neuron nearby and cannot distinguish among different kinds of brain cells.
