SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY
Scientists have proved the uselessness of exhausting sports
Scientists at the University of British Columbia came to the conclusion that physical exertion can be useless in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. In other words, athletes are also prone to heart disease, like people who avoid sports.
“There is no evidence that performing the exercises from the last forces helps longevity or train the heart. If you train hard, then you, rather, harm yourself “, – the scientists advise:” You should never engage in so much that the next day you find it difficult to get up, “the study indicates.

The universe is split for each quantum experiment
Dr. Carroll adheres to the many-world interpretation of quantum mechanics. As its name suggests, it implies the existence of many worlds. However, unlike other hypotheses about parallel worlds, this theory does not provide for their intersection. The most surprising and strange – as far as possible in quantum mechanics – is the process of the emergence of parallel realities.
“According to the multi-world interpretation of quantum mechanics, the electron is in fact in every possible position until it is measured. As soon as this happens, the universe branches out: it divides into different copies, – explains Professor Carroll. – In one copy the electron was there, and you saw it there. In another – the electron was in a different place, and it was there that you noticed it. In the third copy, the electron was in a completely different place, and you saw it there. Each possible outcome of this measurement corresponds to a separate branch of the wave function of the universe. It turns out that the whole universe is duplicated. And these duplicated universes are almost identical, except for the differences in the outcome of the direct quantum measurement. “
