The Various Versions of the Gettysburg Address and Real Excercise Apparently Helps Memory

From the wall street journal two days ago, here are two articles worth checking out:

The first one involves real exercise being the best tool for keeping your memory (relevant to me and my family).

Article 1:

The second article is a short one various versions of the Gettysburg Address and who owns them. Cool fact from the reading: J.P. Morgan offered $50k to buy the second draft (perhaps the actual reading copy). That $50k offer is around $1 mil today. But that’s nothing compared to what Bill Gates paid for Da Vinci’s papers: $30 mil.

Article 2:
