How new does news have to be?

Cutting-edge update from Yahoo Canada’s “Good News” blog:

Psychological Review recently published a study that claims that the key to success is working hard in short bursts of time.

I’m all in favour of the post’s theme that successful people work only four hours a day (could be why I’m not too successful). Not so much in favour of the shameless marketing for the book of some self-help guru I won’t link to. Puzzled by the fact that the “recently published” article is from 1993.

The Yahoo blog post links to a PDF of the article, if you want to download 44 pages of fax-quality scanning. (It’s a journal article from 1993, remember?)

What next? Will CNN pounce on the magic number seven, plus or minus two?
