Eeat diets of food, not too much, mostly plants; they exercise routinely; they don’t smoke; they sleep enough; they are not ridiculously stressed out; and their social connections are strong.

Feet, forks, fingers, sleep, stress, and love- are the 6-cylinders in the engine of lifestyle as medicine. The covariance of proposition and preposition

But the Blue Zones are also noteworthy for their diversity. In Loma Linda, California, they are vegans. In Costa Rica, their diet includes eggs, dairy, and meat. In Ikaria, Greece and Sardinia, Italy they practice variations on the theme of Mediterranean diets. In Okinawa, Japan, a traditional plant-based, rice-centric diet produces the same outstanding results.

In all cases, the theme is the same: real food, not too much, mostly plants. Or put even more generically: wholesome foods, in sensible combinations. Unlike us here in the USA, if it glows in the dark by some contrivance other than bioluminescence- they don’t eat it!

Why choose low-fat or low-carb, when there are good and bad sources of fat, good and bad sources of carbohydrate? Why choose between low-glycemic and low-salt, when a diet of wholesome foods results reliably in both? Why choose between the quantity of calories and the quality, when the best way to control the former without perennial hunger is to improve the latter? Why choose any dietary dogma at all?

Possiamo quindi dire quale sia la dieta migliore? Sì, certo possiamo ben dirlo. Ma solo crescendo possiamo passare all’azione e ai fatti e guardare ben oltre l’apparire, l’immagine e la bellezza, in perfetto stile MALTAway

The Youth Are Our Future – The Challenges Of Raising Free-Thinking Minds

The Youth Are Our Future – The Challenges Of Raising Free-Thinking Minds

I believe the solution to the corruption that surrounds us is to raise up a new generation of sovereign thinkers who aren’t tied down to any one philosophy, but are thinking minds instead.

Evolution of Indexing. Are you smarter about ‘smart beta’ ETFs?

maltaway_balattiboardmember_evolution_indexing

Smart beta ETFs. Alternatively-weighted ETFs. Indexing 2.0. Whatever you want to call this trend in exchange-traded funds, it’s attracting more investor dollars.

Overall, Morningstar slaps its “strategic beta” label on more than 340 ETFs that together have attracted more than $310 billion in assets. The entire U.S. ETF industry consists of about 1,600 products with $1.7 trillion in assets, so strategic beta has 18% of the asset pie.

If the SPY makes you feel like you’re getting a ride from a teen who’s had one too many energy drinks, then you might like SPLV. It aims to deliver a less choppy ride for risk-averse investors, as it tracks an index comprised of the 100 least-volatile S&P 500 stocks.
