A peek at a CEO’s office

A peek at a CEO’s office

    I am always drawn to articles that give you a glimpse into the life of a CEO. This week The Scottsdale Times wrote a report on Bob Parsons’ office. Bob Parsons, for those who don’t know, is the founder and CEO of Godaddy.com. Godaddy.com has 1100 employees and does over $100 million in an annual sales revenue. You might know Godaddy.com best from their unforgettable Superbowl commercials. In addition to being a CEO, Bob maintains the most popular blog of all CEOs in the world.

    Thirty-five years ago, Parsons was a young man serving in Vietnam and had never heard of a computer. After being awarded the Purple Heart and Cross of Gallantry, Parsons went to work in a steel mill near his family in Boston. Years later, he bought an early personal computer as a hobby. The self-taught entrepreneur has since turned his hobby and utilitarian business approach into one of the most recognizable and successful Internet companies in the world.

    Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

    Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

    Are you a red wine drinker? What if I tell you sipping in a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise? Yup, it’s tried and tested. A new scientific study has just confirmed this wonderful news. So next time you hold a glass of Merlot, you can brag about one hour of hard workout. Rejoice, drinkers!

    What the study found out

    “I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for the more improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

    (applauds)

    I’m not saying this, but the study’s principal investigator Jason Dyck who got it published in the Journal of Physiology in May.

    In a statement to ScienceDaily, Dyck pointed out that resveratrol is your magic “natural compound” which lavishes you with the same benefits as you would earn from working out in the gym.

    And where do you find it? Fruits, nuts and of course, red wine!

    Did I forget to mention Dyck also researched resveratrol can “enhance exercise training and performance”?

    There are limits, of course

    But, all is not gold as they say. If you’re a lady who likes to flaunt holding a glass of white wine in the club or simply a Chardonnay-lover,you have a bad (sad) news. The “one hour workout” formula only works with red wine, not non red wines. And don’t be mistaken and think you’ve managed 4 to 6 hours of workout sessions if you happen to gulp down a bottle of red wine.

    And what can replace the golden lifetime benefits of exercise?Exercise is just as important as you age. Period! But hey, don’t be discouraged; look at the bigger picture here. A glass of red wine is not a bad deal after all!

    The health benefits of red wine

    But just how beneficial is the red alcoholic beverage to your body? As we all know red wine is a healthier choice youc an make when boozing.

    Let’s hear it from a registered dietitian. Leah Kaufman lists red wine as the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverage. Sure, you won’t mind adding up to a mere 100 calories per 5-ounce glass of red wine after you realize it contains antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of diabetes-related diseases, helps avoid formation of blood clots and lowers bad cholesterol level.

    Wantmore? Wine could also replace your mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in red wines can control the “bad bacteria” in your mouth.To add to that list of benefits, moderate wine drinking may be beneficial for your eyes too – a recent study mentions.

    Be aware of the risks, too

    Having mentioned all the ‘goods’ about red wine, you cannot underplay the fact that it is still an alcohol, which isn’t the best stuff to pour into your body. What is excessive drinking going to do to your body? Know the risks and you should be a good drinker at the end of the day.

    However, you don’t want to discard the red vino from your “right eating”regimen just because it stains your teeth blue. M-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n. Did you read that? That’s the operative word when it comes to booze.

    By the way, when chocolate is paired with wine, particularly red, they can bring you some exceptional benefits towards your health.But again, if you tend to go overboard and booze down bottles after bottles, you are up for the negative side of alcohol, and we all know what too much of sweetness (sugar) can do to our body (open invitation to diabetes and heart diseases if you aren’t aware).

    Folks, the red grape beverage is certainly a good buy to have a good hour’s worth of cardio, provided you keep the ‘M’ word in mind. Cheers!
