Olympic Roots
Well, the 2008 Beijing Olympics are over. However, there’s still so much scope for distraction with this new Google Mashup from Supernifty.

The page shows where in the world all the medal winners come from. See which athletes are from your home town.

This will help you know who to look out for down at your local shopping centre.

It’s also an opportunity to learn more about your favorite athlete, where they got started, and how they got to be at the top of their game.

And of course it’s an opportunity to stick it to your neighbouring state/city/county by checking to see who won the most medals.

Calculate your heart rate

Pulse calculator
We’ve added a simple new tool to the Supernifty health range – a pulse calculator.

Your pulse rate gives you an indication of your heart’s health – if it is very high, very low or suddenly changes, there may be something wrong.

This simple tool gives you a quick and easy way to determine your pulse, and provides an evaluation of your health, based on your pulse rate.

If you are engaged in a fitness program, consider taking your pulse regularly to see if your pulse improves over time.

Of course, this does not constitute medical advice – consult your friendly Doctor if you have any concerns.

Try it out! Find out what your pulse says about you – are you ultrafit, normal or unfit?
