Last Week Tonight segment on vaccines

There are many people who are against vaccinating themselves or their children. Most often they're afraid of adverse effects attributed to vaccines by hacks, liars, and profiteers of fear and confusion. The fact that close to all of these adverse effects have never been successfully linked to vaccinations or were straight-up lies doesn't help to convince them.

Please show them this video, it may help prevent their kids from dying or being disabled for life from contracting a preventable disease.

Activity Sharing — my favourite Apple Watch feature

Today my Apple Watch recommended I increase my daily calorie goal. Again. Ugh.

I've reached my activity goals every day for the past 43 days and it's starting to show. A big part of what keeps me motivated each day, is Activity Sharing: a feature that allows me to privately, securely, and easily share my daily progress with friends and colleagues.

It is really cool that a friend of mine from Australia and I can engage in some healthy—no pun intended—competition and help each other stay on track.

Along with the increased activity, I started slowly changing my diet. So far, I've simply reduced the amount of sweets I eat and substituted some of the carbs I usually eat with slightly fattier foods.

Besides being generally fitter and more alert, I find that all the exercise really helps with my mood and motivation throughout the day.

The Apple Watch has been great as a fitness tracker for me in the past six months but Activity Sharing improved on this a lot.

Now I need to get up and get moving because the dog just woke up; she wants to go for a walk and I have a couple hundred calories to burn before I fill that ring today.
