Movie Review: The Water Diviner (2014) *Spoiler free*

Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner is the kind of Australian story that it would be nice to see more of. Not necessarily more historic war stories but more stories that are uniquely Australian without going over the top with Australian-isms.

Case in point, there is a bit of obligatory Aussie slang in the film but it's not over the top and it's not coming out of every Australian character's mouth. I think international audiences could enjoy this film as is without getting confused by the slang.

Exercise... Are You Sitting Down For This?

The Tao Chair.
Mashable recently reported on the Tao Chair and I just had to look into it further. Finally an exercise device you can actually use in front of the TV without fear of mistiming something and being thrown into the wall.

Labelled 'an invisible gym for your living room' the chair is specially designed for isometric exercises along the lines of Pilates. By using various pushing and pulling techniques with your arms or legs against the chair's arms you'll watch the calories burn away through in built sensors and a digital display.
