On average, they said that the media was too focussed on negative stories. The researchers present their experiment as solid evidence of a so called " negativity bias ", psychologists' term for our collective hunger to hear, and remember bad news. It isn't just schadenfreude, the theory goes, but that we've evolved to react quickly to potential threats. Bad news could be a signal that we need to change what we're doing to avoid danger. As you'd expect from this theory, there's some evidence that people respond quicker to negative words.

We are also able to recognise negative words faster than positive words, and even tell that a word is going to be unpleasant before we can tell exactly what the word is going to be.

There's another interpretation that Trussler and Soroka put on their evidence: When it comes to our own lives, most of us believe we're better than average , and that, like the clichés, we expect things to be all right in the end.

This pleasant view of the world makes bad news all the more surprising and salient. It is only against a light background that the dark spots are highlighted. So our attraction to bad news may be more complex than just journalistic cynicism or a hunger springing from the darkness within.

How can you possibly measure your progress accurately when scales can be off by 5 pounds and your weight can fluxuate 10 pounds in a few hours due to hydration changes??? Now that you believe me that weighing yourself accurately is very difficult, let me show you how to do it. The scale is not magical, it only measure weight. Weight can be water, fat or muscle and there is no way the scale can tell what is pressing it downward.

What a bodybuilder really needs to know is the rate at which they are gaining muscle and the rate at which they are losing fat. OK, now that you have a month of weights and skinfold measurements, how do you analyze them? By downloading and using my handy dandy AccurateWeightCharting. By doing a best fit curve thru the data over the course of 30 days, the errors average out and leave us with a very accurate trend curve! After downloading the excel spreadsheet, put in your months worth of data.

So, what do you do with the chart other than print it out to amaze your friends and co-workers? Lets look at what the charts tells us. This is all too much work you say? Who said bodybuilding was easy? You get out of it what you put into it. Bodybuilding isnt just grunting and lifting weights but requires a lot of thinking, reading, and analysis if you want to maximize your progress. If you are fine with gaining a bit of muscle and getting fit then its not worth the bother to even weigh yourself, just use the mirror for feedback.

Scooby on Twitter Screenshot from a pool workout I filmed yesterday. It was filmed at the same pool I was at in in that video cl… https: They would have a handler — a low-level producer — who would get us anything we wanted. We would make out grocery lists, or if there were restaurants we wanted to get takeout from, he would go get it for us.

We even had a production nickname — Bonnie and Clyde. It was so much fun, because we were engaged and it was absolutely killing us that we couldn't be in public together. The weekends were always really carefree — no cameras, just me and Catherine having fun, being silly together, watching movies together and eating good food. I don't think Catherine and I ever got out of sweatpants. The producers understand the challenges the show brings.

And they are friends. A lot of them are good people who try their best to make the relationships work. So the Happy Couples weekends, it's about trying to give us time together. It's definitely a decompression. There's a lot of outside stressors. I had been through it before, but everyone who goes through that show, when they come out of filming, there's a fear of being on TV. And there's a social media effect. Bachelor Nation was pretty outraged that production filmed Arie and Becca breaking up, but Becca said it actually gave her closure to watch the footage.

And she's agreed to be the next Bachelorette, so clearly she doesn't have any hard feelings. Do you think filming that intimate moment crossed an ethical line? I absolutely thought that was over the line.

It's kind of tough for me to say because I know [creator] Mike Fleiss and [executive producer] Elan [Gale] and all the people who make the show, and they're all great people.

I also know that they have a show to make, and at the end of the day, that's all that really matters. But this poor girl, she goes through the whole crazy experience of competing for Arie's love and he gets down on one knee, all her dreams are coming true, she's engaged to the man she wanted to be with.

At that point, I think the show is over. That's what she signed up for. Everything else should be her and her fiance, and it should be carefree and she should just be loving that part of her life. Those Happy Couples were just about us and nothing else — just being normal. So for the cameras to capture Arie breaking up with her — which means Arie contacted the producers first, and then they brought Chris Harrison in — everybody knew what he was gonna do except for her.

He could have put his foot down. There are things that I put my foot down on, and they can't make you film anything. I'm not blaming it on Arie, because I know that they can be very persuasive. He does share some of the blame. That was the show just taking it too far. Hopefully, the show recognizes that, and they won't do that again.

The way I figure it is they weren't gonna let Arie change his mind or get a new ring unless he did this. My thought is that if he wanted to make this decision, he had to have agreed to film it.

Are you surprised that Becca wants to go back on the show after going through that? Here's kind of the dirty thing that no one wants to talk about, but in that age of Instagram, you realize if you're chosen as the Bachelor or Bachelorette, you've just walked into a ton of money.

And for the normal person, that's really hard to say no to. On top of that, you're the star of the show and you get to travel the world. You have the chance to continue living in this fantasyland, and once it's over, you're going to make a boatload of money. That's impossible to say no to. I hate to be the cynic, but I know that's a real factor. Even former stars of the show were outraged: Catherine Giudici and Sean Lowe take in the scenery in Thailand shortly after their proposal on the season finale of "The Bachelor" in Lauren Burnham, left, and Arie Luyendyk Jr.
