NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- What happens when you lock a mouse in a tiny box? Its eczema clears up, of course! Researchers have tested how stress affects the healing process in mice and have discovered acute stress actually helps them heal. This could have a profound impact on the way we view healing in humans.
In this latest installment of the Geekend series, author David Wagner looks at the study and shows how fear and stress can trigger the release of hormones that can actually help the body heal. The catch is that you have to have the bajeebers scared out of you. This could help us learn more about how we heal from surgery, deal with chronic pain, and get clearer skin. How? Click the link to find out.
Each week, Wagner takes an often humorous look at a variety of scientific studies that look at the convergence of technology and human behavior to see how we're changing our world, and how the world we built is changing us. This week, he's scaring mice in the name of health.
Check out this week's Geekend and we'll clear up your skin.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
