Let’s stop pretending exercise is fun. Like work, you’ve just got to do it

Sunday 17:13 GMT

All very interesting, but maybe it’s fundamentally counterproductive to keep pushing this idea that exercise per se is supposed to be fun.

Worst of all, tedious though it is, for most, exercise is beyond beneficial, it’s vital – health, wellbeing, weight, the lot – so we slackers just have to park our bad attitudes and crack on. There’s a giant con at the heart of exercise – that is, a lot of effort goes into hard-selling it as “FUN!”, when, for many people, it frankly isn’t.

The Hawkeyes (23-11) got their first NCAA tournament win in four years despite what amounted to a home crowd for the Bearcats, who couldn’t overcome a subpar game by Jarron Cumberland. The Hawkeyes rallied from an early hole for a 79-72 victory over the No. 7 seed Bearcats, moving the league to 6-0 with Ohio State and Wisconsin still to play later Friday.

Why stock market investors should worry about a bearish divergence in financials

Saturday 14:29 GMT

See related: Why a bout of small-cap carnage could be a red flag for stock market bulls. Before that, however, in the months leading up to the financial crisis, there was a similar bearish divergence.

Some technicians would call that a bearish divergence relative to the broader market, as the S&P 500 reached a record high in September. By that definition, the XLF has been in a downtrend for the past 14 months, as the successive rally peak in September was below its January high.

CMO Today: Samsung Audits Its Marketers; Walmart’s Secret Weapon; MillerCoors Sues Over Corn Syrup

Saturday 14:29 GMT

MillerCoors argues in its suit that the ads “deceive beer consumers into believing that there is corn syrup and high-fructose corn syrup in Miller Lite and Coors Light.” There’s no corn syrup left once brewing is done, the company says, and high-fructose corn syrup is never involved. So billboards declaring that Bud Light has “100 percent less corn syrup” than its targets are grinding gears over at MillerCoors, which wants all the ads to stop and “corrective” advertising to take their place.

Even before the midday auction, family and community members protested outside the courthouse, holding Hawaiian flags, ceremonial ti plant leaves, and handmade signs bearing slogans like “Mark you Zuck!” and “Study Kuleana Zuckerberg!”. Angry members of the holdout Rapozos marked Zuckerberg as absent, even as he was being schooled in the complex world of traditional Hawaiian land ownership.
