40 Questions To Predict Your Life Expectancy

40 Questions To Predict Your Life Expectancy

When it comes to life expectancy and centenarians, there are few people more qualified than Thomas Perls MD, MPH. Perls is known around the world as the founder and director of The New England Centenarian Study: the largest study of centenarians and their families ever undertaken.

Based on his vast knowledge and research, Perls has created the Living To 100 Life Expectancy Calculator which claims to be able to estimate  just how long you’re going to live for. ‘The Living to 100 Life Expectancy Calculator uses the most current and carefully researched medical and scientific data in order to estimate how old you will live to be,’ the website reads. ‘Most people score in their late eighties… how about you?’

    There are a total of 40 questions you are required to answer after you’ve entered your date of birth, gender and location. Each of these questions is related to one of five categories: Personal, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Medical and Family. Here are a few of the questions so you know what to expect if you decide to undergo the test:

      3
        5
          7
            9
              10

                It took me about six minutes to complete the calculator, which suggests I should live until I’m 84-years-old, which is pretty good in my opinion.

                  Of course, these sorts of online ‘medical’ tests should never be taken too seriously. If you would like to have your health checked you should always go straight to your doctor rather than relying on the internet to give you the answers. If you’d like to have your life expectancy calculated, you can find the calculator here. Let us know what age you got!

                  8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                  8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                  We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                  On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                  Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                  1. Smart Door Locks

                  A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                  2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                  Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                  3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                  If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                  4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                  These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                  5. Nest Thermostat

                  This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                  6. Smart Lighting

                  Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                  7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                  Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                  8. Canary

                  This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
