Matt Killingsworth: Want to be happier? Stay in the moment
I don't think I would jump so nimbly to that conclusion. I cannot speak for anyone else, but I never feel a sense of malaise or unhappiness from being cut off from my daydreaming. It's all relative to the moment at hand. Fir instance, if I were on a sunny beach, I wouldn't consider engagement with the moment to be a "cold reality."

Can we use clothing to induce Amy Cuddy's power positions?
I should say so. Many styles of clothing are meant to augment or to approximate different body types. For instance, shoulder pads in men's suits would give the impression of a more expansive physique, which would make a person look more imposing than they might in more casual clothing. It's often called a "power suit." Additionally, fitness goals might also be an indicator of how a person wishes to be viewed not through body language, but by language of the body, if that makes sense. Strength training workouts are intended to make someone look wider by increasing muscle tissue, as opposed to alternative exercises, including tai chi and yoga, which give the body a longer, leaner look.

Brian Greene: Is our universe the only universe?
My question is, if the universe is expanding at an ever-increasing rate because dark energy is causing galaxies to be pushed from the center of "mass," in this case towards the edge of the universal bubble, does that mean that the bubble itself is expanding and growing into a bigger bubble? Or are all the galaxies approaching the edge of the egg? What would happen if a galaxy reached the eggshell? Or, on the other hand, if the universal bubble is getting bigger with the perceived expansion caused by dark energy's repulsion, does that mean that there's some kind of space outside the universe that allows for this growing room? Where does the universe have to go, or grow?
