How to reduce my cortisol levels?

Question 1:
What are some effective techniques or supplements I can take to reduce my cortisol levels?

Question 2:
There's no doubt in my mind that there is a link between Vitamin C and
Cortisol. What I'm wondering is whether Vit C is involved in somehow
reducing Cortisol after incidents of stress. Vit C is more plentiful
in the adrenal glands than anywhere else in the body. I assume the C
is depleted during stress. Why? What's the connection here?

New business models emerge for the Web

By Chris O'Brien / Mercury News Columnist

I am constantly impressed by the crazy amount of energy entrepreneurs spend hatching innovative services, so I have never understood why they seem to spend so little time figuring out their business models.

Most end up banking on their ability to sell ads to pay the bills and make money.

Everyone manages to convince themselves that they'll be the one startup to break out of the pack and make this work. But this ignores the truth that no matter how much advertising revenue shifts to the Web, there isn't enough to support even a tiny fraction of these startups.

But at last, we are seeing some tremendous breakthroughs in innovative business models for Web businesses.

Gen Y Likes Talking About Brands

AUGUST 13, 2007

Members of Generation Y have 145 conversations a week about brands, according to Keller Fay Group data cited in an August 2007 Brandweek article. That is twice as many brand conversations as adults.

Nearly six in 10 teens mentioned marketing and media in their conversations, while only 48% of adults did.

Only 7% of adult word-of-mouth mentions happened online, compared with 19% of teens'.

For both groups, 61% of brand word-of-mouth mentions were offline, even if the mentions were also being made at the same time online or in text messages.

Most teen brand mentions were positive (58%), compared with 64% of adult brand mentions.

The Keller Fay Group surveyed 13-to-17-year-olds during the first five months of 2007.

I Want My iTV

By Cliff Edwards
Nov. 12, 2007

But I won't be getting it soon. While the technology is mostly in place, the players—from cable companies to film studios—can't agree on how to make it happen

It all started when my TiVo let me down. For years this little device has been like an old friend. It sat next to my big-screen TV to record shows and movies when I wanted, without a lot of questions, and with no judgments on what I wanted to see. But on a lazy late summer day, I came to view TiVo in a whole new light.

There's a collision, you see, between the boob tube and the Internet. TV is all about instant gratification. The Net is about me having control. Put the two together, and the result should be personalized TV, or iTV, which lets me watch what I want, when I want it. That sounds a lot like TiVo. The recorders, which the company claims deliver "television your way," also allow you to connect to the Net and do things like check freeway traffic before your daily commute, buy movie tickets from your couch, and listen to Web radio, all on your TV. In July, TiVo even became the first device that lets you search easily for programs from cable outfits along with movies and other content delivered off the Web from Amazon's (AMZN ) Unbox video service.
