It’s happening again–but this time it WAS a piece of metal. A mysterious piece of metal weighing about 5 pounds suddenly crashed through the roof of a furniture warehouse in the Boston area. The FAA looked at it and says it didn’t come from an airplane. Luckily, no one was hurt.
If YOU want to live a long life, you not only need to learn how to duck, you need to volunteer. People who volunteer may live longer than those who don’t, as long as their reasons for volunteering are to help others rather than themselves. It’s a kind of living prayer (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show). New research shows that volunteers’ motives can have a significant impact on life span: they live on average 4 years longer than people who don’t volunteer.
Psychologist Sara Konrath says, "This could mean that people who volunteer with other people as their main motivation may be buffered from potential stressors associated with volunteering, such as time constraints and lack of pay."
