Haven't been able to look at your plan just yet w busy little ones. My only question is do you have a meal by meal plan I follow. I Love working out! I will do weights and outdoor cardio till pigs fly. But I do struggle with proper foods. Love healthy foods but on days where I don't prep. Eeek😉
          The How To Guide for Six Pack Abs   

First off I want to mention that, for most people, getting six pack abs is not an easy task. It requires serious dedication, but it is possible! If were blessed with naturally low body fat and good muscle definition, enjoy it! Otherwise, below is a general 2-step guide that, if followed religiously for 3 months, will produce results.

Step 1: Nutrition

This is the single most important part of the puzzle, hands down. You can have the most impressive set of abs, but if they're covered with a layer of fat, you won't see them! Break up your day with 5 or 6 mini-meals because this jump starts your metabolism. And stop eating the food that is preventing results: white bread, loads of pasta, soda, candy, fast food, hydrogenated oils, sugars and fructose corn syrup.

Instead, replace them with foods that will help you reach your goal: oatmeal, olive oil, whole grain breads, fruits, vegetables, nuts, peanut butter, chicken, fish, protein and water. Be realistic- you'll slip here and there, but make a conscious effort to radically improve your eating habits because getting a six pack will be impossible if you don't.

Step 2: Exercise

You need to concern yourself with 3 different exercises: cardio, weightlifting and ab exercises. And aim to workout no less than 4 times a week.

The cardio you do can be anything: walking, running, biking, swimming....whichever cardio you don't mind doing so that you'll stick with it. Aim for 30-45 minutes, a minimum of 2 times a week.

Weightlifting is important because 3 pounds of added muscle burns as many calories as a 1 mile jog...and this is while you're just sitting around! Aim for 30-45 minutes, a minimum of 2 times a week. If you're confused as to what exercises to do for each body part, check out out the following website. It features professional bodybuilders, but the information is great and can be used by anyone.

The last exercise you need to incorporate into your workout is ab exercises. Aim to work your abs a minimum of 3 times a week. There are a ton of different ab exercises you can do so try to find 3 or so that you enjoy doing so you can mix it up. A good database of different ab exercises is:

Well, there you have it. Follow the above for 3 months religiously, and while results will vary from person to person, you will experience improvement. It will take serious dedication on your part, but imagine the feeling you'll get when you look in the mirror and like what you see.

          The Ultimate Hard Body Exercise   

The Front Squat:

As you may have already discovered, the squat is at the top of the heap (along with deadlifts) as one of the most effective overall exercises for stimulating body composition changes (muscle gain and fat loss). This is because exercises like squats and deadlifts use more muscle groups under a heavy load than almost any other weight bearing exercises known to man. Hence, these exercises stimulate the greatest hormonal responses (growth hormone, testosterone, etc.) of all exercises. In fact, university research studies have even proven that inclusion of squats into a training program increases upper body development, in addition to lower body development, even though upper body specific joint movements are not performed during the squat. Whether your goal is gaining muscle mass, losing body fat, building a strong and functional body, or improving athletic performance, the basic squat and deadlift (and their variations) are the ultimate solution. If you don't believe me that squats and deadlifts are THE basis for a lean and powerful body, then go ahead and join all of the other overweight people pumping away mindlessly for hours on boring cardio equipment. You won't find long boring cardio in any of my programs!

Squats can be done with any free weighted objects such as barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, or even just body weight. Squats should only be done with free weights - NEVER with a Smith machine or any other squat machines! Machines do not allow your body to follow natural, biomechanically-correct movement paths. You also perform less work because the machine stabilizes the weight for you. Therefore, you get weaker results!

The type of squat that people are most familiar with is the barbell back squat where the bar is resting on the trapezius muscles of the upper back. Many professional strength coaches believe that front squats (where the bar rests on the shoulders in front of the head) and overhead squats (where the bar is locked out in a snatch grip overhead throughout the squat) are more functional to athletic performance than back squats with less risk of lower back injury. I feel that a combination of all three (not necessarily during the same phase of your workouts) will yield the best results for overall muscular development, body fat loss, and athletic performance. Front squats are moderately more difficult than back squats, while overhead squats are considerably more difficult than either back squats or front squats. I'll cover overhead squats in a future article. If you are only accustomed to performing back squats, it will take you a few sessions to become comfortable with front squats, so start out light. After a couple sessions of practice, you will start to feel the groove and be able to increase the poundage.

To perform front squats:

The front squat recruits the abdominals to a much higher degree for stability due to the more upright position compared with back squats. It is mostly a lower body exercise, but is great for functionally incorporating core strength and stability into the squatting movement. It can also be slightly difficult to learn how to properly rest the bar on your shoulders. There are two ways to rest the bar on the front of the shoulders. In the first method, you step under the bar and cross your forearms into an "X" position while resting the bar on the dimple that is created by the shoulder muscle near the bone, keeping your elbows up high so that your upper arms are parallel to the ground. You then hold the bar in place by pressing the thumb side of your fists against the bar for support. Alternatively, you can hold the bar by placing your palms face up and the bar resting on your fingers against your shoulders. For both methods, your elbows must stay up high to prevent the weight from falling. Your upper arms should stay parallel to the ground throughout the squat. Find out which bar support method is more comfortable for you. Then, initiate the squat from your hips by sitting back and down, keeping the weight on your heels as opposed to the balls of your feet. Squat down to a position where your thighs are approximately parallel to the ground, then press back up to the starting position. Keeping your weight more towards your heels is the key factor in squatting to protect your knees from injury and develop strong injury-resistant knee joints. Keep in mind - squats done correctly actually strengthen the knees; squats done incorrectly can damage the knees.

          How to Increase Your Bench Press by Doing Squats   

My Legs Are Already Big Enough. I Keep Hearing Working Legs Is A MUST. Why Is That So Important?

Believe me? I hated leg workouts. Until I realize the true potential that a simple set of squats could unleash.

Frankly? I see the same people on the leg press machine, leg extensions, doing lunges and doing squats week after week. But for every other muscle group, it's like a new day. There's the familiar faces of course, but there's always new people. It's like working leg is an exclusive club.

And yet that is 50% of your body! Your entire lower body you will neglect because:

? You don't like working legs
? You don't want bigger legs
? Your leg are big enough

But let's suppose? you do work legs. And without much weight at all. Just enough to stimulate your entire body propelling it into new levels of growth. Do you think that is possible?

How can doing squats increase our bench press? If you are stuck on bicep curls, how can incorporating legs into your routine break you thru those plateaus?

I'm here to tell you right now, as you read this, that doing leg workouts is a whole lot more then just getting bigger, more toned, or stronger legs.

Think about it. Testosterone is a primary ingredient of building muscle. So you do a hard set of tricep pushdowns. Your body responds by making more testosterone. Let's just guess at 10% more for the day. Phew. Hard workout. Good job!

Do you qualify as one of those people?

But,? let's say you do a set of breathing squats at 100% intensity.

You just boosted your testosterone production 1000%.

Do you think I'm being facetious?

But back to the purpose of this question. Working your legs isn't an option. It's something you do. So you don't want bigger legs? Fine. Don't pile on the weight. Don't overload them. Just stimulate your metabolism, and stimulate your body changing. So you don't like legs? Get over it.

Fact is, by incorporating legs into your workout, you will see more gains in 6 weeks then most people do in 3 months.

Don't take my word for it. Look around at your gym? The guy with a huge upper body and tiny chicken legs. Do you want to look like that? Who are the bigger guys in your gym? Who are the women that you most want to look like? I can assure you those people do legs. Any top notch physique does legs.

Doing a cardio machine that uses legs is not the same.

So that's why working your legs is so important. Please do not make excuses. You do not have to train to failure where you cannot walk. You don't have to squat 600 lbs. You simply must train the 50% of your body that pretty much 80% of everybody just doesn't do.

Next time you are in the gym take a good look around. Notice the leg equipment. Notice the same people using that week after week.

Become one of the individuals at your gym that trains legs and discover the secret to growth.

Here are the reasons why working every muscle - not just certain ones - is the superior method of getting the results you want:

1. Builds lean muscle
2. Reduces body fat levels
3. Increases energy
4. Balances blood sugar in the body
5. Increases neuromuscular efficiency
6. Improves sexual performance
7. Lowers cholesterol in the body
8. Protects against heart disease
9. Improves mood

All the above reasons are by-products of increased testosterone. For men, this means better muscle gains. For women, don't worry you don't have enough testosterone to get big and bulky like a man. For everybody, working legs will help you with the above factors and assist you in reaching your goals.

          The Importance of Maintaining A Weight Training Log   

Do you find gyms intimidating? Feel lost while doing your workouts? Tried different programs with no results? Not always sure of want exercises you are supposed to be doing? Or maybe you're burnt out on the exercises your doing. A weight-training log may be exactly what you need.

Walking into a gym full of big bodybuilders or women built like models can be very intimidating. Having all these beautiful people working out around you can make you wonder if you'll ever be able to look like that. Well let me tell you a little secret they didn't always look that good and with a focused plan you too can look that way. Its simple, write down the exercises that you usually do with the amount of weight used and number of sets performed for a period of three weeks. Use a weight-training log. For example if you are doing a three day split that is you divide the body into three parts and train them over three days, write down three workouts for each group. Don't worry if this takes more or less than three weeks just as long as you record three workouts for each grouping. Now review your workouts after that period and analyze your findings. Were you workouts remarkably similar? Did you use the same amount of weight for the same number of sets? Was your cardiovascular training always for the same amount of time, done the same way? To quote a famous bodybuilder and actor," If you do what you've always done you'll get what you've always got", I'll let you try and figure out who said that. So the next time you have to train, try to improve in small steps maybe a little more weight on the bench press, say 5 lbs. Maybe try a different type of cardio or run on the treadmill for a little longer, say 3 minutes. These small steps will ultimately help you achieve your fitness goals faster than plugging away day after day never improving. Don't get discouraged if you can't improve every time. Remember, little steps.

One of my favorite methods for my training log takes a little longer to run its course but ultimately leads to excellent improvement. Try a heavier weight but for fewer repetitions, for example if I pressed 60 pounds for 12 last week, the following week I would do 65 for 10. Continuing with this pattern I would work down to 6 reps for 75 pounds. All this is recorded in my weight-training log. Now start at the beginning again but this time try 65 pounds for 12 reps; if you can do more than one set go ahead, but try a least one set.

Ultimately the idea behind a weight-training log is to be able to monitor your progress from workout to workout, improving a little with each session. Psychology has proven that positive reinforcement helps to improve your work ethic. One of the best things that arise from keeping a weight-training log is the ability to chart your progress. Even sea captains use maps and you wouldn't drive somewhere you haven't been without a map. So by keeping a weight-training log you should be able to see your progress. Watching your self improve in the mirror is often too slow; having it in front of you in black and white is undeniable proof of your progress, boosting your confidence and self-esteem.

Not every workout is going to be exciting. Life's not always a party and getting back into shape can be drudgery. Sometimes the days seem to run into each other and working out is the last thing you want to do. By maintaining a weight-training log of all your workouts it's easy to see if you are doing the same exercises time after time. If your workouts have become stale quickly review your weight-training log and see if there are patterns. If the same movements pop up week after week try changing things up. Ask your trainer about different training modalities or methods and you interest should perk back up. "I remember what I did last week", you say. Well sometimes the mind will play tricks and you'll forget what you did not than long ago. Countless times I've looked in my weight training log and said" I did that much last time?" Or "Wow, I haven't done this exercise in months". As a bonus to doing this your body has to keep adapting to new stresses which will help achieve those fitness goals faster, but that's a different column altogether.

Working part time at a gym I get exposed to a lot of people's habits as far as training and fitness. Some good and some bad, however the habit I like to see the most of is asking questions. Just the other day, I was approached twice by the same person with questions pertaining to properly performing the exercises on their program sheet. That's what the staff at the gym is there for so don't ever be afraid to ask. But if you have a plan a lot of the guess work is taken out of your workouts. Make little notes to yourself in your weight training log if need to remind yourself of how to do a particular exercise or what machine to use. Even write down how you felt on that day and why, lack of sleep, didn't eat well etc. Perhaps you have an injury, be sure to write this down as it will surely affect all or part of your routine. Knowing this will be useful later when you wonder why that workout was so much lighter than the previous ones. Write down when you felt strong and why this was. With this information it should be easier to duplicate the good days and avoid the bad.

Hopefully you'll be able to use all or part of this article to help achieve your fitness goals. Never stop trying to improve no matter discouraged you get. Remember little steps in your weight training log and you too can look your best. It's all just a matter of time and effort.

          How to Lose the Most Fat and Build the Most Muscle in 30 Days   

A lot can happen in 30 days.

The dream of everyone who trains is to lose maximum fat and build maximum muscle in the shortest period of time possible. While it is definitely possible to both lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, in my experience, the best results come from concentrating on one major goal at a time.

Let me put it this way: to lose fat, you need a caloric deficit. To build muscle, you need a caloric surplus. If you try to do both at the same time, you may just remain exactly where you are!

So the question before us is - how do we maximize both fat loss and muscle gain, two very much opposing goals, in only 30 days?

It's simple, we focus on both goals in the same program but not at the exact same time!

By alternating rapidly back and forth between reduced-calorie fat loss training and higher-calorie mass-oriented training, you can not only accomplish both goals at the same time, you can actually use the two opposing goals to feed on each other and send your results through the roof!

To illustrate my point, remember how quickly you gain weight when coming off a strict diet? Remember how quickly you lose weight when you start to diet and you haven't been careful about what you've been eating? That's your body rapidly adapting to a stress. One of the most powerful features of this switching back and forth is in the change itself - your body changes far quicker when you give it a powerful reason.

What is the result of this switching back and forth? Extremely rapid fat loss and extremely rapid muscle gain.

To maximize the effects of this switching, you must tailor your training, diet and supplementation towards your specific goal during that particular time. Proper manipulation of these factors will greatly enhance the body's hormonal response to this program, which is the real key to maximizing your results.

For five days, we will target everything about your training and nutrition towards fat loss.

You will reduce your caloric intake below maintenance levels to promote fat burning.

You will reduce the rest periods between sets in your weight training to increase the intensity of the workload and boost the metabolism.

You will increase your training volume, performing more sets for each bodypart.

You will not push your body to muscular failure , pushing to failure can be too stressful to the muscles when on a reduced-calorie diet. Stop one rep short of this point.

You will include cardio training, preferably High Intensity Interval Training for best results, to burn calories and further boost your metabolism.

You will NOT take creatine during this time (I'll explain why below).

It is best to follow a low-carb diet during this time for maximum effectiveness. Eating this way will be especially powerful when you switch to the next phase of the program.

After five days, your metabolism will be just starting to get used to the training and nutritional program you're following. Now we'll throw it a curveball and change everything!

For the next five days, you will be focusing your training, nutrition and supplementation completely on muscle building.

You will increase your caloric and protein intake to promote gains in muscle mass.

You will increase your rest periods in between sets to allow for more recovery and increased strength in your sets.

You will decrease your training volume, doing fewer sets but with greater intensity. This is the time to really push your muscles to the edge! You're feeding them now, so don't be shy about training them hard.

You will eliminate all cardio training in order to maximize muscle gain. Cardio training can burn calories that should be used for the muscle building process.

You will load creatine for the first three days of the muscle-gain phase. This will take advantage of and greatly enhance the flood of water and nutrients into the muscles.

You will NOT follow a low-carb diet during this time. We want lots of carbs to provide energy and promote insulin release (the body's primary storage hormone). This insulin release will help shuttle protein and other nutrients into the muscles to help with building.

The body's hormonal response to this huge change in training, nutrition and supplementation is tremendous. Sensing a feast after a famine, it will greedily take in all the nutrients it can and store them in the form of glycogen (for carbs), muscle mass (for protein) and fat (to some extent). Since you will only be doing this phase for 5 days, however, fat gains will be minimal so don't be shy to eat!

It is important to note that you should eat a lot but you should eat clean , loading up on junk food will not give you the best results. You've got to provide your body with quality materials to rebuild with or you may not gain as much muscle and you may add too much fat.

After five days of this training, your metabolism will be cranking along, happily building muscle. Now we'll pull the rug out and go right back into fat-loss training for five days. Since your body is used to getting more food and your metabolism is still moving fast, switching to fat-loss training at this time will immediately result in your body burning far more fat than if you were using a conventional fat loss program.

In 30 days, you will complete three rounds of this rapid-adaptation training. As you will soon experience, this switching back and forth between a short, targeted fat loss program and a short, targeted muscle-building program can have a tremendous and rapid impact on bodyfat and muscle mass levels.

What does this mean for you? It means you can lose fat faster and gain muscle faster, taking FULL advantage of your body's natural reaction and rapid adaptation to massive change.

Think this program sounds good? You ain't seen nothing yet...

This particular program is just a taste of what you'll find in the full All-Star Trainers eBook from AtoZFitness. In addition to a detailed explanation of how to perform my program, including a day-by-day guide and set-by-set workouts to follow, you'll also get the rapid fat-loss and muscle-building secrets of 11 of the most knowledgeable and respected trainers in the world, including Tom Venuto, Pete Sisco, David Grisaffi, Jeremy Markum, Phil Campbell, Christopher V. Guerriero and many others!

The next 30 days are going to pass by whether you get this information or not. You could stick to your conventional programs and get slow (if any) results. How would you like to make these next 30 days the most productive of your entire training career?!

          Why You Do Not have Killer Abs or that 6 Pack Abdominal Muscle   

Ask any woman what is the most attractive part of a male body and most of the time, they will tell you it's the six pack abs, meaning that your abdominal muscle showing up with beautiful definition. Your abs is considered by many as a sexy muscle and is a symbol of a fit and healthy man. Women are instinctively drawn towards a man brimming with health and fitness because it is a primitive indication that the man is strong enough to protect her and her brood. A rippling six pack abs is one such indication. So is it any wonder that in every gym, you will see men of all ages doing crunches, leg raisers and sit ups religiously in the hope of obtaining the much coveted killer abs? Unfortunately, most men will never get to see their abdominal muscle in its glorious splendor. Why? The following fitness tip will show you why.
You may not like what I am going to give to you straight in the face here. But I will give it to you anyway. So here it goes. Listen up carefully. You may do a zillion crunches a day, then another another million leg raisers , but as long as there is a layer of fat covering your tummy, you will never see your abs because it is covered by the blubber of fat. In fact, your waistline will become bigger because you are adding muscles underneath those fats! So instead of having a slim waistline and showing off your abs, you will have a bigger waistline and thicker love handles. Now get this straight. There is no such thing as spot reduction! Once the fats are off, your abs will show. That I promise you. It is just that simple to display your abs. Lose fats! That's all.
Late night TV commercials or magazines has been telling you that you can have well defined abs by using this gadget or that electronic gizmo. Do you really believe that it is that simple? If it is so, then everyone will have that six pack abs in no time, won't they? Then why isn't that so? Because it just doesn't work that way.
To lose fat effectively and permanently for your abdominal muscles to show, you must include a mildly deficit calorie restriction diet, frequent cardio workouts and strength training with weights to build muscle so as to raise your metabolism in order to lose weight and burn fat naturally. Your weight loss goals will not be achieved effectively or permanently if any one of these three elements is done wrongly or not even incorporated in your slimming program. I repeat the three elements again :-
A mildly caloric deficit diet - A mildly caloric deficit diet to help you lose weight.
Frequent cardio workouts - Frequent cardio workout to exercise your heart and lungs and burn fat at the same time.
Weight Lifting to build muscles - Build muscles to burn fat permanently as muscles use up more calories from your food for energy. Lifting weights will also give you a well toned body and help your abs to show.
Forget about any fad diets or popping slimming pills . These may work initially but in the long run, they are bound to fail.
Now supposing that you are successful in your lose weight lose fat program and have very little fat covering your torso but yet you do not have well defined abs....what happened? You are doing your exercises wrongly or in poor form. More about exercise techniques and form in future articles.

          Body Building Mind Games: Dont Let Your Weight Determine Your Mood!   

Is the 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD) syndrome affecting your output? That extra flab can overpower you and your work. Thee feeling of being fat can morph into an emotion like 'happy' or 'angry'. Days overpowered with that feeling have been designated as 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD). So don't let your weight determine your mood.

How many times have you heard your colleague quipping, "I feel fat" or "It's a fat day feeling?" Can't fit into your favorite pair of jeans? How about a snide comment from a relative or colleague? That's all it takes to turn an ordinary Monday or Tuesday into IFFD(I Feel Fat Day).

Perhaps just like the national celebrations, 'fat' is important enough to get a day named in its honour and it doesn't just come one a year! Carrying extra pounds is necessary but not exclusive prerequisite to an IFFD. To have an IFFD, one must also carry an element of shame. A good IFFD is not complete without tears, self loathing and a frantic scramble for concealing clothes.

So, how to keep away 'fat' from becoming an emotion? Simple semantics: fat is fat. Don't confuse it with the emotions so often attached to it, and recognize that shame and self-loathing are useless distractions. Neither of them will help you get closer to your goal. The way out is simple: instead of wasting time and psychic energy on IFFDs, we could use those special resources for the job at hand.

Here's the ultimate plan for coping with an IFFD:

. Make your very next meal a healthy one. By choosing a lightly dressed salad instead of the usual, you are putting yourself on anew path and abruptly ending the IFFD.

. Get Moving. A body in motion is beauty in progress. Even if it's the middle of the day and you cant hit the gym because of your tight schedule, you can still go up and down the stairs.

. Wear something that makes you feel beautiful and enjoy your unique look.

. Hang out with positive people. Try to be in company of winners, people who feed you energy and inspire the best in you.

. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE AND TRANSFORM YOUR OWN AS WELL. LEARN TO APPRECIATE AND VALUE YOURSELF.

Tip: Many of us feel too flabby while making love, feel too many bulges in the wrong place, feel awkward when lights are on and ask, what's the way out? Obviously there is hope and certain exercises, habits and lifestyle changes one can adopt to get rid of those unsightly fat deposits. You can strengthen your lower back. It is specially improtant when you are working on your abs. Besides that. cut on sodium and try to create a "V" shape in your upper body. Crunches are vital in your quest to eliminate love handles. Also reduce the consumption of alcohol as they contain "empty calories". The magic key lies with the cardiovascular exercises

          Hábitos de vida e a Tradição Chinesa   

Que o estresse tem consumido nosso tempo e prejudicado nossos hábitos de vida, isso muitos sabem, mas quantos já se perguntaram o quanto isso afeta a nossa saúde a longo prazo?

Segundo a Medicina Chinesa, possuímos uma Essência que é doada pelos nossos pais, conhecida também por Energia Ancestral, ou Jing Pré Celestial.

Mas para o funcionamento adequado do nosso organismo, precisamos da interação desta com a Essência Adquirida, ou Jing Pós Celestial, obtida através da nossa alimentação e respiração. 
Uma boa alimentação e um bom condicionamento cardiorrespiratório (adquirido através de exercícios), que proporciona uma distribuição de oxigênio pelo corpo mais eficaz, garantem um bom Jing adquirido.

Essa Essência pode ser comparada a uma vela: a hereditariedade responsabiliza-se pelo diâmetro, enquanto nossos hábitos pela queima. E como toda vela, aquilo que se perde não se recupera.

Má alimentação, noites mal dormidas, sentimentos que nos consomem, vícios, excesso de trabalho; todos são fatores que aceleram a perda da nossa Essência.

Esse fato é visualizado ao lembrarmos em como ficam as pessoas  em fase terminal de uma doença. Temos a nítida impressão de que a Essência dessa pessoa está se esvaindo. E realmente é isso que acontece; é a vela se apagando.

A Acupuntura pode auxiliar no equilíbrio energético do nosso organismo, fisiologicamente e emocionalmente; porém ter bons hábitos é fundamental para uma boa saúde.

Lembre-se: somos aquilo que comemos, que pensamos, e o que queremos ser! 
Portanto, busque o equilíbrio para uma saúde melhor.

          Blog de cara nova!   
Olá queridos leitores!

Já faz um tempo que queria modificar o visual do meu blog e depois de muitas tentativas consegui deixá-lo da maneira que queria. Mas desde o último post, no mês passado, não escrevi novas matérias. Estou escrevendo hoje justamente para esclarecer o motivo do meu "sumiço".

Sempre gostei de lutas mas desde a faculdade deixei as tarefas do meu dia-a-dia profissional dominarem meu tempo. Porém, para cuidar de outras pessoas precisamos cuidar de nós mesmos, e foi assim que decidi arrumar um tempo para mim.

Quando comecei a trabalhar com o Pilates passei a praticar o método, e os benefícios começaram a aparecer. Diante de mais resistência muscular e consciência corporal voltei a lutar, intercalando o treino de luta com o Pilates e um trabalho de força muscular.

Mas tenho uma predisposição genética, que não é modificável com exercícios, a lesão ligamentar. A algum tempo atrás, ao subir num banco para alcançar um objeto escorreguei e minha primeira reação foi me segurar onde pude, mas meu ombro (esquerdo) não estava preparado para segurar todo o peso do meu corpo de forma tão abrupta. Isso foi suficiente para lesionar minha articulação. Passados alguns meses já não sentia mais dor e conseguia praticar exercícios na mesma intensidade que antes. O resultado foi uma luxação de Hill Sachs no ombro esquerdo durante a luta.


                                     

RX de ombro sem luxação


RX de ombro com luxação

Para quem não sabe, luxação significa a perda de intimidade entre o osso e a articulação. A fratura de Hill Sachs é um afundamento da cabeça do úmero e lesão da cápsula articular (que mantém os ossos unidos), lesando junto alguns ligamentos. Sendo assim, perdi a estabilidade da minha articulação glenoumeral (ombro) e infelizmente meu caso é cirúrgico. Minha idade, profissão e a extensão da lesão corroboraram para que eu decidisse pela operação.

          
      (1) Fratura de Hill Sachs                   (2) Cápsula articular
    
É engraçado como tantas pessoas entendem como surreal uma fisioterapeuta se machucar como aconteceu comigo mas o fato é que meu corpo tem a mesma constituição de qualquer outro ser humano. Sou tão disposta a me acidentar e adoecer quanto um marceneiro, uma dona de casa, um gerente de banco, um jogador de futebol (de final de semana) ou um colega de luta. Ainda mais quando fatores genéticos ou externos (acidentes) determinam o problema.

Diante desses fatos, minha vida está uma loucura porque tenho ido a diversos médicos, próxima semana tenho cardiologista, alergista e exames ... tudo isso para fazer a cirurgia em janeiro. Sem contar as sessões de fisioterapia diárias.

Pretendo postar em breve no blog já que todo o tempo livre que tenho tido venho dedicando aos estudos.

Esse post foi mais um desabafo, uma forma de justificar minha ausência.

Um grande abraço a todos e até breve!

          High Volume Abdominal Training & More   
Looking to develop a killer set of abdominals in a very short time? Give this training program a shot. It isn't going to be easy, but you will see abs in under eight weeks. Let's check out the details!




Training




Train your abdominals four times per week, on the same day you're training with weights. This will allow your central nervous system (CNS) to recover on the rest days, and not be troubled with ab training. Start with about ten minutes of crunches, followed by ten minutes of lower ab training. Lying leg raises usually work best. End the day with five minutes of oblique training. The side abdominals are most affected by movements like light dumbbell side crunches or broomstick twists. Twenty-five minutes of abdominal training, four times per week, and you should have your bases covered!




Stretching




Each morning, stretch out your midsection for about five minutes using broomstick twists. Not only will this tighten up your obliques, but it will allow you to break up lactic acid in your entire midsection which has accumulated over the night of sleep following your previous day's workout. No need to break a sweat here just train light and enjoy yourself!




Diet




Cut out unnecessary sugar and fats from your diet. It's okay to eat "normal", but foods such as soda and chocolate really have no place in your dietary regimen if you wish to have a well-defined midsection. It's a simple trade-off. Decide which you like more eating junk or having a terrific set of abs.




Cardio




You might have the best abs in the world, but if your body fat is high (15% or greater), the world will never know. Keep your body fat under 8% by adding 30 minutes of cardio to your routine, four days per week. Train immediately upon waking, before you have consumed any calories even coffee or juice. Never complete cardio on the day before a weight training session of legs, or on the morning of such training.




Water




Often overlooked in the leaning up process, water helps the machine that is your body to function in a much more efficient and effective manner. Drink 8 to 16 cups of water per evening.




Supplements




You can certainly develop a great set of abdominals without taking a single supplement. However, their use can certainly accelerate the process and get your midsection looking better even faster! A commonly used legal supplement is known as ECA. This involves taking 25 mg of ephedrine (commonly sold as Bronkaid), 200 mg of caffeine (available at any grocery store in yellow pill format) and 250 aspirin. Take your ECA stack immediately upon waking in the morning, and again mid-day. Taking it too late in the day may result in an inability to fall asleep in the evening.




Follow these steps and you should have an excellent looking midsection in just eight short weeks. If you fall off track, don't worry. A cheat meal or extended weekend of rest is necessary every now and then. The important part is to immediately return to the gym and your ab training, and get right back on track!

          Awesome is a state of mind   
Riassunto della zozzeria! SIGLA!
*chissa' perche' quando dico SIGLA, nella mia testa parte lo stacchetto de Il Pranzo e' Servito...I don't even know..*



E dopo la paura per Danielle finita nelle 'Due Ultime Stronze In Fondo' (le chiamano 'Bottom Two', ma a me piace piu' la mia versione..) per qualche inspiegabile motivo, e la conseguente eliminazione di Dani-con-le-fossette, ecco un'altra sfida al cardiopalma (AHAHAHAH!) a colpi di musicals e canzonette pop.

Non c'e' mai uno straccio di tema: una canta in mutande con un ensamble di aitanti maschi (!!) dietro, un'altra canta appollaiata sulle scale in vestito da Bond Girl e capelli cotonati, un'altra e' in Converse e canta Pink, un'altra ancora in tailleur e tacco 12 fa scempio di Maybe This Time. Non si capisce chi cazzo decide la scaletta/coreografia/costumi/parrucche, ma evidentemente uno che di testa non ci sta tanto.

Il risultato e' che il Panel fa commenti del tutto a caso, che variano di molto poco. C'e' sempre la 'best performance yet', il 'you didn't sell it', il 'you're still in this competition', il temuto 'you could've connected more with the audience/the panel/the camera/gesuccristo/il vicino del piano di sopra/il geranio fuori al balcone della signora di Glasgow che guarda dal salotto di casa sua' e l'ambito 'you can definitely be Maria Nancy Dorothy'
Partridge e' la versione Lidl di Barrowman, Sheila trova tutto amusing e giustamente ride in faccia a tutti, e Charlotte e' pretty e smoking hot e tanto basta.
Il Lord sta seduto sul trono, ha l'aria annoiata e a fine puntata dice sempre 'Questa e' la decisione piu' difficile che abbia mai dovuto prendere.'
Ogni. Santa. Volta.

Insomma le 'Ultime Due Stronze' sono la rossa Sophie e la sfigata Emilie-col-buco-nei-denti.

Indovinate? C'e' bisogno che lo dica? L'avevo chiamata DUE SETTIMANE FA, in tempi non sospetti, e anche nell'ordine di eliminazione.
Insomma si, esce Emilie. Che ci canta per la prima e ultima volta Over The Rainbow sulla luna di cartone e stecca clamorosamente sull'ultima nota, squotendo anche lei la testa con un'espressione che dice 'che cazzo ho tentato di fare?'.
Ah, non si sa tesoro, se non lo so sai tu..
Io, sospiro di sollievo.

Quindi se domenica prossima esce Jenny significa che ne ho azzeccate tre su tre e anche nell'ordine giusto. (anzi veramente 4 perche' avevo azzeccato anche che la prima ad annassene a casa sarebbe stata Amy, ma non l'ho scritto quindi non ho le prove. Sono una corretta, io, che vi credete.)
So' soddisfazioni, lo so, non e' da tutti..Sono troppo awesome.

A proposito di awesome. Doppietta di awesomeness! SIGLA!
(Come dite? Non c'e' la sigla qui? Ah. Peccato. Ci stava bene. Pensavo una cosa tipo una coreografia di Ninjas con le katane e dietro un'esplosione di fiamme con sotto una roba come All Along the Watchtower fatta da Jimi Hendrix..no eh?)

SWEET CHARITY (26.04.10)
Charity trasferisce dopo il successo a casa Menier, quindi godiamoci una piccola run westendesca. Piu' grande, piu' bello, piu' tutto.
Quasi tutto il cast integro (quindi praticamente mezzo Hello Dolly), Tamzin e Tiffany e tutto il cucuzzaro..
E poi lei, la mia Jo. <3 Oh, Josefina, in quanti modi t'amo, lascia che conti:
1: l'accento italiano. LOL.
2: lo stacco di coscia.
3: il vestitino verde di lame'.
4: la parrucca cotonata.
5: gli occhi blu che si vedono anche dal circle.
6: l'accento del Queens. ARI LOL.
7: dio quando balla..DIO.
8: la sigaretta mezza accesa poggiata tra le labbra.
9: i tempi comici perfetti.
10: la risata sguaiata.
11: l'aria da imperatrice anche quando fa la piu' coatta delle coatte.
12: il fatto che e' in mutande per 90% dello show.
13: c'ha il fisico di una 18enne, porca vacca..
14: quando si strucca in scena con aria sfatta e lo sguardo fisso nel vuoto, ed e' piu' nuda cosi' che se si fosse tolta i vestiti..

Potrei andare avanti per ore, ma mi fermo qui.
Lei balla con Tamzin e Tiffany e io non vedo altro che lei. Le altre due potrebbero anche sparire in una nuvola arcobaleno.
L'unico difetto di questa produzione e' che un sacco di battute e situazioni funzionavano quando era in un teatro da 9 file, ma ora all'Haymarket si perde un po'. Io ero nel mezzo del Royal e l'ho sentito un po' distante. Visuale perfetta, eh?
Ma l'attimo in cui Nickie capisce che Oscar non sposera' davvero Charity, l'attimo in cui glielo legge negli occhi, quel momento terrificante quando capisce e le cascano letteralmente le braccia, sta praticamente affidando la sua migliore amica all'ennesimo stronzo che le spezzera' il cuore e non c'e' niente che nessuno possa fare per impedirglielo perche' life is shit, devi essere tosta se vuoi sopravvivere..
Be', si perde nel mare dei 4 livelli dell'Haymarket..
Peccato.

OLIVER! (27.04.10)
E il giorno dopo andiamo a trovare la nostra biondina preferita.
Lo show e' ancora una gran caciara di ragazzini scalmanati, ma se passi tutta la parte delle sfighe di Oliver e arrivi indenne al covo di Fagin, in finale ti diverti.
Poi arriva lei (ho contato: un'ora buona dopo l'inizio dello show. Comodo.), con la sua risata da bimba, e il corsetto strizzatette, e le sottovesti che volano ogni volta che si muove..e noi sospiriamo emanando cuoricini rosa dalle orecchie.
Poi viene sbattuta un po' a destra e a manca, si canta le sue belle 4 canzoni, si spupazza i bambini, esagera l'accento cockney (che fa sempre molto ridere), fa i pugnetti con le manine sante ringhiando come un chihuahua, si becca due cazzotti e poi Bill la ammazza a randellate sul London Bridge. Allegria.

Al solito, lei e' una dea, la Moglie e' cute, e io sembro una malata terminale.
Poveri noi.
Ma e' cosa buona e giusta, e' l'ordine naturale delle cose.


EDIT: Simon si e' beccato Galahad, mi dicono dalla regia. HOW?! Sembra uno zingaro, come cazzo fa a fare Galahad?? Mah.

EDIT 2: Chiudono Sister Act a fine anno, cosi' fanno spazio alla nefandezza al Mago di Oz. Povera Katie, a spasso senza un lavoro, in periodo di grossa crisi come questo..*sigh*


EDIT 3: c'era un meme che girava su Feisbuc, una roba tipo il tuo musical preferito, il tuo performer preferito..
Ero sull'orlo di farlo, quando sono arrivata all'ultima domanda: Quanti musicals hai visto?
AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA..no.

Mi rifiuto. Non riuscirete a convincermi. Ci perderei una vita e mezzo e non ho tempo da perdere cosi'. No.
Ho detto no, non insistete.
No.

...dannazione.

          Winter, Winter go away........   
Diabetes can't really get me down, but adding onto diabetes with little things that aren't so great has got me down a little. I went to the doc yesterday and he told me something I already knew but haven't really put much thought into it. He told me I have something called Right Bundle Branch Block. Strange name....it's when the wiring in the heart is just a little different. The "electrical currents" take a different route than they normally should. He didn't want to tell me not because it's bad but because it is nothing to worry about at all and a normal healthy heart can have it as well. Soooo......I'm not worrying about it...or am I? I am a little. He is scheduling me for an ultrasoud of the heart and a stress test just to rule anything out. That's good. I don't have symptoms of anything and I only went to the cardiologist because my heart seems to have this sensation of beating really hard, especially at night. Not skipping beats or irregular or anything, just hard.

And then my husband has been home from work for the last week (thank goodness for Aflac), because he had an episode of losing vision for a split second and then a headache and dizziness. The dizziness hasn't gone away and that is why he has been home. He has been getting a bunch of different tests done from MRI's to a Carotid Artery Test. The MRI and Cat Scan have come back fine so that is good. His mom is recovering from a double bypass in a nursing home that she calls dispicable. In my opinion, any nursing home is not great but she will only be there for a week and she is doing good. Does winter bring out all the illnesses, not to mention the lazies?

I can finally see our driveway which has been hidden away under all the ice and snow. I can't wait to see the grass! With all of this going on, my sugar levels have actually been pretty good.

So, with all due respect, winter.......could you just go away?

VideoMicPro-R Compact Directional On-Camera Microphone

VideoMicPro-R Compact Directional On-Camera Microphone

Rode VideoMicPro-R (VideoMicProR, VideoMicPro R, VideoMicPro/R, videomicpro-r) Compact Directional On-Camera Microphone   Redesigned version of the Videomic Pro featuring an improved, lower noise condenser capsule and a Rycote designed shockmount.         The RØDE VideoMic Pro is a true shotgun microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders as a source of primary and reference audio. At the heart of the VideoMic Pro is an all-new 1/2" condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5mm minijack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) with an incredibly low self-noise of just 14db. A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera. The integrated Rycote® Lyre® based shock mounting system separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre® provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap. Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level controls. In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded. Below these controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with DSLR cameras, allowing the user to reduce the camera's preamp level (or mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's comparatively low quality audio circuitry. The microphone uses a standard sized shoe mount for on camera use, and features a 3/8" thread in the base of the mount for easy boom pole mounting. The VideoMic pro is battery powered, and provides over 70 hours recording from a single 9V battery.  Features: Rycote® Lyre® shock mounting onboard All-new capsule with lower noise and higher sensitivity Broadcast recording quality condenser microphone Compact form factor (150mm/6” length) Ultra lightweight (85g/3oz) 9V battery powered - over 70 hours use (alkaline) Integrated shock mounting Integrated foam windscreen 3.5mm stereo mini-jack output (dual mono) Two step High Pass Filter (flat, 80Hz) Three position level control (-10dB, 0, +20dB) Camera shoe mount with 3/8” thread for easy boompole mounting

before-feedback Natural sound – easy to blend with pick-up Flexible and easy mounting Mount has no impact on acoustic sound Detachable cable and versatile gooseneck extender Perfect for PA amplification and live recording of acoustic upright bass, the 4099B offers a sound that is considerably more natural than an internal microphone or pick-up as well as several excellent placement possibilities. The 4099B is a unique clip microphone inheriting the sonic approach from the legendary DPA studio microphones to a new instrument microphone. The 4099B microphone and mounting system is meticulously designed and optimized for the double bass. This is to ensure the best possible mount and audio reinforcement is achieved when performing live. The 4099B attaches to the E and G string below the bridge and allows for microphone capsule placement in the sweet spot between bridge and fingerboard. Representing years of research and development, the 4099 condenser microphones feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. Fully capable of handling the double bass’s dynamic range and subtle details, these microphones live up to their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA’s other world-class microphones. Despite its tiny, discreet size and elegant, lightweight design, 4099B is extremely rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument, while the mounting system is designed never to mar or scratch the finish of your instrument nor changing the sonic character of it. Reduce cable clutter on stage by using the DAO4099 Double Cable. The cable carries both the 4099 mic extension cable and a pick-up jack connection in one dual cable run in a nylon sock. The jack uses high quality Mogami cable and gold Neutrik connectors. At the instrument end there is a right-angled connector. The microphone extension is the DPA miniature cable. Through the use of our extensive adapter system, the 4099 can be used as a standard 48V phantom powered microphone via the included XLR connector and is also compatible with virtually any wireless system. Fleet owners of 4099s will appreciate the multiplicity of using the microphone for a number of different instruments simply by moving the microphone/gooseneck part to another instrument clip from the range. With its very flexible design for a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities along with its extremely natural sound, the 4099 is truly a musician’s mic without equal. Continuing DPA’s heritage of sonic excellence, this series of microphones achieves the purest reproduction of your instrument and therefore your full range of expression. Optional gooseneck extension Standard gooseneck length is 140 mm (5.5 in), which can be altered with the optional gooseneck extension unit, adding another 50% to the length, helping to achieve exactly the sweet spot for the instrument. Detachable cables The updated 4099 range features detachable cable from gooseneck, so it’s more convenient to mount the mic on an instrument before connecting it. Furthermore, the choice of different cable qualities makes it possible to tailor your mic to the specific task, such as choosing the heavy duty 2.2 mm cable for PA/Live gigs or the easier-to-hide, thinner miniature cable for personal mounting on instruments where you don’t want the cable weight to interfere with your performance. In case of cable break, service is easy and fast. Adapters for wireless microphones A wide range of connection adapters makes it possible to use DPA miniature microphones with all professional UHF, VHF or digital wireless system available plus 48 V Phantom. DPA has specific adapters for AKG, Audio Ltd., Audio-Technica, Beyerdynamic, Electro-Voice, Lectrosonics, Micron, Mipro, Pastega, Telex ProStar, Ramsa, Samson, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Toa, Vega and other systems.

Performance Inspired is now the new official sports supplement of one of the biggest sports in the world: the UFC.

Performance Inspired co-founder (and current Men’s Fitness cover star) Mark Wahlberg announced the new partnership on Thursday, June 29, together with UFC President (and former Men's Fitness cover star) Dana White. Performance Inspired will now supply its line of sports products to the UFC Performance Institute with a “Performance Inspired Fueling Station,” according to the brands' announcement.

Along with the Fueling Station, Performance Inspired will have a place in the world-famous UFC Octagon, and on UFC's social and digital platforms.

“Inspiring people to be active and healthy is rewarding for me personally, and the charity element of our business is an added benefit,” Wahlberg said in the press release. “It’s one of the reasons we created Performance Inspired, as it’s all about giving back and helping athletes on any level maximize their true potential. UFC athletes need nutritional support, and we’re glad we can fill this necessity.”

“The UFC has the most comprehensive anti-doping program in sports, and we just opened a state-of-the-art performance institute at our new offices, so the health and performance of our athletes is essential to everything we do,” White said. “That’s why we’re partnering with Mark. The reason he’s been incredibly successful is because he does things the right way, so our fighters know his Performance Inspired products are top-quality, natural ingredients that are safe to use and will help them maximize their own performance.”


          8 Ways to Sculpt a Bikini Butt   

          Rest Your Body to Grow Your Muscles

Question: 

Since I rest each body part for 3-4 days before hitting it again, can I weight-train every day?

Answer:

“I’m inclined to say no,” says Frank Claps, owner of Fitness for Any Body, a personal-training service in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania. “Your muscles and the energy systems that fuel them need time to recover.” In other words, even though individual body parts are getting rest days, the overall nervous system, which fuels training for all those body parts, must itself have rest days free from the demands of weight training. If the nervous system doesn’t get that rest, it will soon burn out and training will be severely impacted.

Claps points out that many bodybuilders—including professionals—tend to train 4-5 days a week, with a couple of days of rest each week. He agrees with this kind of weekly split. “The best muscle-building results come from having 4-5 days of training with a few rest days within the mix,” he explains.

You can also spend some of your non-training days performing moderate cardio and/or stretching or other non-gym activities. “Even if your goals are more about health and general fitness than about increased muscle size and strength, training every day is too much,” Claps notes. “Without time off from the gym, you won’t have the fuel necessary to be at your best, and your results will suffer.”

Another factor to take into consideration is the stress that weight training places on joints such as your shoulders, an active joint involved in many upper-body exercises. Even though you may do pushing moves like bench presses on one day and pulling moves like lat pulldowns the next day, both sessions involve your shoulder; so methodically inserting rest days into your week is sure to help reduce wear and tear.

M&F understands that you love to train, and you want to train as often as possible. While the mere act of going to the gym is an important part of your daily life, you won’t get the best results if you go every day, says Claps.

For those who love to train so much that it’s hard to skip a day, just apply the same principle to rest and recovery that you apply to training: discipline. Keep yourself from going to the gym one or two days a week, and you’ll get better results in the long run.

>>> Benefícios para a Saúde

Saúde do Coração

As bananas são boas para o coração. Elas possuem potássio, um eletrólito mineral que mantém a eletricidade por todo seu corpo, necessário para manter seu coração batendo.

O elevado teor de potássio das bananas e teor baixo de sódio podem também ajudar a proteger seu sistema cardiovascular contra alta pressão de sangue.

 

>>> Depressão e Humor

As bananas podem ser úteis na superação de depressão "devido aos altos níveis de triptofano, que o corpo converte em serotonina, neurotransmissor do cérebro de elevação de humor" disse Flores.

Além disso, a vitamina B6 pode ajudá-lo a dormir bem, e o magnésio ajuda a relaxar os músculos.

Digestão e Perda de Peso

A banana prata é ricas em fibras, que podem ajudar a mantê-lo regular.

Uma banana pode fornecer quase 10% da sua necessidade diária de fibras.

A vitamina B6 também pode ajudar a proteger contra a diabetes tipo 2 e ajuda na perda de peso, de acordo com Flores.

Em geral, as bananas são importantes para a perda de peso, porque elas tem um sabor doce e não engordam, o que ajuda a evitar ânsias.
Elas também ajudam a manter os níveis de açúcar no sangue durante exercícios.

 

>>> Visão

Cenouras podem receber toda a glória por ajudar seus olhos, mas as bananas fazem a sua parte também.

Os frutos contêm uma quantidade significativa de vitamina A, que é essencial para proteger os olhos, mantendo a visão normal, além de melhorar a visão durante a noite, de acordo com o Instituto Nacional do Coração.

A vitamina contém compostos que preservam as membranas que circundam os olhos e são um elemento com proteínas que trazem luz para suas córneas.

Como outras frutas, as bananas podem ajudar a prevenir a degeneração macular, uma doença incurável, que embaça a visão central.

Ossos

As bananas podem não transbordar cálcio, mas eles são ainda úteis para manter os ossos fortes.

De acordo com um artigo de 2009, do jornal de Fisiologia e bioquímica, as bananas contêm uma abundância de frutooligossacarídeos.

Estas são carboidratos que incentivam os probióticos digestivo-amigável e reforçam a capacidade do organismo de absorver cálcio.

Câncer

Algumas evidências sugerem que o consumo moderado de bananas pode ser protetora contra o câncer de rim.

Um estudo sueco de 2005 descobriu que mulheres que comiam mais de 75 porções de frutas e legumes eliminaram seu risco de câncer de rim em 40%, e que as bananas foram especialmente eficazes.

Mulheres que comem dieta da banana de quatro a seis por semana diminuem pela metade o risco de desenvolver câncer de rim.

As bananas podem ser úteis na prevenção de câncer de rim por causa de seus altos níveis de compostos fenólicos antioxidantes.

[adsgrande]

 

>>> Riscos para a Saúde

Comido com moderação, não há nenhum efeito colateral significativo associados a comer bananas.

No entanto, comer as frutas em excesso pode provocar dores de cabeça e sonolência, disse Flores.

Ela disse que essas dores de cabeça são causados por eles, "os aminoácidos da banana que dilatam os vasos sanguíneos".

As bananas maduras contêm mais destes ácidos aminados do que as outras bananas.

"Bananas podem também contribuir para a sonolência, quando ingeridas em excesso devido à quantidade elevada de triptofano encontrado nelas," ela disse.

Magnésio também relaxa os músculos, às vezes um benefício, às vezes um risco.

As bananas são frutas açucaradas, então comer demais e não manter práticas de higiene dentária adequada pode levar à deterioração de dente.

Também não contêm bastante gordura ou proteína para ser uma refeição saudável por conta própria, ou um lanche pós-treino eficaz.

Comer bananas torna-se significativamente arriscado somente se você comer demais.

O USDA recomenda que adultos comam cerca de duas xícaras de frutas por dia, ou cerca de duas bananas.

Se você comer dúzias de bananas todos os dias, pode haver um risco de alto teor de vitamina e minerais.

O Centro de Medicina da Universidade de Maryland relatou que o consumo excessivo de potássio pode levar a hipercalemia, que é caracterizada por fraqueza muscular, paralisia temporária e um batimento cardíaco irregular.

E pode ter consequências graves, mas você teria que comer cerca de 43 bananas em um curto período de tempo para que qualquer sintomas de hipercalemia ocorra.

Consumir mais de 500 miligramas de vitamina B6 diariamente possivelmente pode levar a danos nos nervos nos braços e pernas.

Você teria que comer milhares de bananas para chegar ao nível de vitamina B6.

 

Cascas de Banana: Comestíveis ou Venenosas?

Acontece que o maior risco de uma casca de banana pode realmente estar em escorregar nela.

Cascas de banana não são venenosas.

Na verdade, elas são comestíveis e repletas de nutrientes. "Casca de banana é comida em muitas partes do mundo, embora não seja muito comum no Ocidente," disse Flores.

"Ela contém quantidades elevadas de vitamina B6 e B12, bem como magnésio e potássio.

Ela também contém algumas fibras e proteína.

" De acordo com um artigo do jornal de bioquímica aplicada e biotecnologia de 2011, cascas de banana também tem "vários compostos bioativos como polifenóis, carotenoides e outros".

É importante lavar cuidadosamente uma casca de banana antes de comê-la devido as pesticidas que podem ser pulverizadas em pomares de banana.

Cascas de banana são geralmente servidas cozidas ou fritas, embora elas podem ser comidas cruas ou batidas em um liquidificador com outras frutas.

Elas não são tão doces como a banana. As cascas serão mais doces do que as bananas verdes.

 

>>> Fatos da Banana

As bananas podem ter sido o primeiro fruto cultivado do mundo.

Arqueólogos encontraram evidências de cultivo de banana na Nova Guiné, desde 8000 A.C.

As bananas são produzidas principalmente em áreas tropicais e subtropicais da África, Ásia e das Américas, bem como as ilhas Canárias e Austrália.

As bananas não crescem em árvores.

A bananeira é classificada como uma erva perene arborescente de (tipo de árvore), e a banana em si é considerada uma baga.

O nome correto para um cacho de bananas é uma mão; uma única banana é um dedo.

Quase todas as bananas vendidas nas lojas são clonadas de apenas uma variedade, a planta de banana Cavendish, originalmente nativa do sudeste da Ásia.

O Cavendish substituiu o Gros Michel, depois que essa variedade foi exterminada pelo fungo.

O Gros Michel supostamente era maior, tinha uma vida útil mais longa e um sabor melhor.

O Cavendish pode enfrentar o mesmo destino que o Gros Michel dentro dos próximos 20 anos, dizem os botânicos.

As bananas são também chamadas de plátanos.

Mas em geral, "banana" refere-se a forma mais doce da fruta, que muitas vezes é comida cru, enquanto "banana" refere-se a uma fruta que muitas vezes é cozida antes de comer.

Existem 50 espécies reconhecidas de banana.

A dieta da banana com aveia selvagens crescem em todo o Sudeste Asiático, mas não são comestíveis para os seres humanos, pois são cravejados com sementes duras.

A grande maioria das bananas cultivadas hoje é para consumo por agricultores ou a comunidade local.

Apenas 15% da produção global do fruto é cultivado para a exportação.

A Índia é a maior produtora de bananas no mundo, respondendo por 23% da total da produção de bananas, embora a maioria dos plátanos indianos é para uso doméstico.

Em 1923, a partitura de uma música popular intitulada "Sim, nós temos Bananas!" vendeu mais de mil cópias por dia

A versão de Harry Belafonte da canção "barco Banana" foi lançado no primeiro álbum que vendeu mais de 1 milhão de cópias.

          Fisioterapia e amputação transtibial   


Amputação transtibial é definida como a retirada total ou parcial de um membro. Esse tipo de amputação, apesar de acarretar transtornos físicos e psicológicos ao paciente, é considerado como sendo de bom nível posicional, principalmente, para reabilitação e indicação de próteses.

 A técnica ortopédica evoluiu muito e desenvolveram-se componentes pré-fabricados e padronizados, possibilitando melhor reabilitação funcional com necessidade de participação efetiva do fisioterapeuta.

Dentre os níveis de amputação, a mais frequente é a transtibial, definida como a retirada total ou parcial de um membro nesta região, causando limitação funcional ao indivíduo2,3. Embora considerada como de bom prognóstico para uso de prótese, o amputado pode apresentar dificuldades importantes para locomoção, transferência e trocas posturais, e ainda, presença de dor no coto ou fantasma, baixa auto-estima, medo e depressão4

O coto é denominado membro residual, sendo considerado um novo membro, responsável pelo controle da prótese durante o ortostatismo e deambulação. É comum ocorrer algumas complicações após amputação, como deformidade em flexão, irregularidades ósseas, excesso de partes moles, cicatrização inadequada, neuromas dolorosos, complicações cutâneas ou comprometimento vascular, o que pode levar à incapacidade e redução nos níveis de qualidade de vida.

Assim, a partir da descrição dos aspectos evolutivos do uso de próteses em conjunto com os comprometimentos decorrentes da amputação e, definida a importância do processo de reabilitação aos envolvidos com agravos desta natureza, definiu-se como objetivo do presente estudo, o levantamento de informações sobre a amputação transtibial e a realização de descrições sobre
o perfil do paciente submetido à cirurgia em questão, assim como a intervenção do fisioterapeuta.

Causas e conseqüências das amputações

Estudos apontam a tendência de ocorrência de amputações devido, principalmente às insuficiências arteriais periféricas, complicações do diabetes mellitus, infecções severas, traumas, neoplasias e deformidades congênitas

A maior frequência de amputação transtibial ocorre na faixa etária de 50 a 75 anos, com destaque para complicações vasculares geralmente em indivíduos acima de 50 anos e, em seguida, condições traumáticas observadas em adultos jovens, devido a maior exposição ao trabalho e trânsito. Em crianças, as causas mais comuns de amputação incluem as deformidades congênitas, condições traumáticas ou por tratamento de doença maligna. Em relação à variável sexo, estudos mostraram que o maior índice de amputação ocorre em homens, em média 75% dos casos.

Mudanças pós-amputação

Com a amputação o paciente sofre grande alteração do potencial funcional músculo esquelético e dificuldades na adaptação a uma condição incapacitante, pois o mesmo necessita fazer mudanças na sua vida, desde alterações sociais, econômicas e até familiares.

Após a amputação, o indivíduo, muitas vezes, tem dificuldade em aceitar psicologicamente o coto, pois a deficiência física altera sua imagem corporal. Para que a reintegração corporal seja produtiva e positiva ao paciente amputado, o mesmo deve aceitar sua perda física, condição necessária para integrar funções de um membro mecânico, como a prótese, com seus próprios músculos, conseguindo, assim, domínio de seus movimentos.

Nível de amputação e atenção pré-operatória

O nível determinado para amputação do membro deve ser o mais longo possível, de acordo com as possibilidades de cada caso, sendo considerado o mais distal desejado, ou seja, acima da transição músculo-tendínea do gastrocnêmio2. O coto deve apresentar boa mobilidade e circulação sanguínea, ser recoberto por
um bom coxim músculo adiposo e pele sadia e não apresentar dor, assim possibilitará uma adaptabilidade satisfatória às próteses.

Além disso, há a necessidade de atenção para diversos aspectos referentes a fatores físicos contidos na avaliação pré-operatória, que podem proporcionar complicações no processo de reabilitação, como nível de visão e audição, estado circulatório, controle da bexiga e intestino, doença cardio-pulmonar relacionada, força dos músculos do tronco, mobilidade da coluna e pelve, equilíbrio e postura geral, viabilidade do membro e condições da pele, condições físicas e sociais, expectativas, adequações necessárias no domicílio e rede de suporte
para cuidado. Quaisquer dessas alterações devem ser consideradas para formulação de planos de ação específicos para cada paciente.

Objetivos da fisioterapia


O fisioterapeuta desempenha papel fundamental quanto à reeducação funcional, acompanhando o paciente em todos os estágios do programa de reabilitação, fazendo parte de equipe multidisciplinar, supervisionando e tratando desde o estágio pré e pós-operatório, na educação de mobilidade pré e pós-protética e, se necessário, em cuidados de manutenção das funções músculo-esqueléticas,

Nesse sentido, a presença do fisioterapeuta é importante no processo dinâmico, criativo, progressivo, educativo e, objetiva a restauração ótima do indivíduo, sua reintegração à família, comunidade e sociedade.

O tratamento deverá ser iniciado de forma precoce para recuperação funcional, com objetivo de acelerar a protetização e o retorno às atividades8. De maneira específica, os objetivos visam cicatrização e redução de edema, manter ou aumentar força muscular de ambos os membros, transferências e cuidados no leito, prevenir contraturas articulares do membro residual ou qualquer membro, instrução nos cuidados do membro residual e deambulação com muletas10.

São vários os fatores que devem ser considerados para prescrição adequada de tratamento, como presença de múltiplas afecções, independência funcional, autonomia, idade avançada, etiologia e nível de amputação, tempo de evolução entre amputação e início da reabilitação. Devido a tais fatores, é fundamental um trabalho multidisciplinar, que vise o desenvolvimento e participação ativa do paciente no seu tratamento4

Condutas terapêuticas

A fisioterapia deve ser realizada logo após a amputação, atuando no posicionamento correto no leito, dessensibilização do coto, exercícios ativo-assistidos, ativo-livres e isométricos, uso de bandagens, exercícios de propriocepção, trabalho do membro contralateral e membros superiores e treino de marcha6. Tendo como objetivo a manutenção da amplitude de movimento,
aumento de força muscular, equilíbrio e adaptações da marcha de acordo com a possibilidade do paciente, envolvendo orientação e condutas de prevenção e reabilitação.

          O Pentecostes de Éfeso   
Corações «irrequietos» por serem «movidos pelo Espírito Santo», ou «eletrocardiogramas espirituais» fracos, lineares, «sem emoções»? Em qual categoria nos encontramos? Foi a principal pergunta formulada a cada cristão pelo Papa na homilia. No início da semana na qual «a Igreja nos prepara para receber o Espírito Santo e nos faz refletir sobre o Espírito Santo, pedindo-nos que rezemos a fim de que o Espírito Santo venha à Igreja, ao meu coração, à minha paróquia, à minha comunidade», o Papa convidou os cristãos a pôr-se «na expetativa deste dom do Pai que Jesus nos prometeu».

A meditação inspirou-se na primeira leitura do dia dedicada à pregação de São Paulo em Éfeso (Atos dos Apóstolos 19, 1-8). Imediatamente se nota, relevou, «que essa comunidade que tinha recebido a fé não conhecia o Espírito Santo». A ponto que, disse, esta leitura se poderia chamar «O Pentecostes de Éfeso», porque «sucedeu o mesmo que acontecera em Jerusalém».

E no entanto «aquele povo era crente». Mas quando Paulo lhes perguntou: «Recebestes o Espírito Santo quando abraçastes a fé?», eles responderam: «Nem sequer ouvimos que existe um Espírito Santo». Nesta narração deparamo-nos com a «realidade de uma Igreja composta por boas pessoas, gente de fé, que acreditava no Senhor Jesus», mas que «estava ali sem sequer conhecer este dom do Pai: o Espírito Santo». Então «Paulo impôs as mãos e teve início: “Desceu sobre eles o Espírito Santo e começaram a falar em línguas”».

O Pontífice explicou que, com a descida do Espírito Santo, para os discípulos de Éfeso «começou o impulso do coração porque o que move o nosso coração, o que nos inspira, que nos ensina» é ele: o Espírito «que move o coração», que alimenta «as emoções no coração». De resto, acrescentou, o próprio Jesus tinha dito: o Espírito «ensinará» e fará recordar «tudo o que vos ensinei».

O que aconteceu aos discípulos de Éfeso é uma experiência recorrente nas narrações do Novo Testamento, nas quais se encontram muitos personagens que «ouviram esta mensagem e mudaram de vida». Por exemplo, aprofundou o Pontífice, «podemos perguntar-nos: quem moveu Nicodemos a ir de madrugada a falar com Jesus?». Foi precisamente «aquela inquietude». E «quem moveu a samaritana depois de ter dado a água a Jesus, a entreter-se com ele a falar?». A resposta é que ela sentia que «o coração mudava». E ainda: «quem moveu a pecadora a ir ter com Ele e a lavar os seus pés com as suas lágrimas? E quem move tantas pessoas a aproximarem-se de Jesus? Pensemos naquela senhora, doente que perdia sangue: quem a moveu e inspirou aquele sentimento, aquela ideia: “Se eu tocar a bainha do seu manto, serei curada”?» A resposta é sempre a mesma: «o Espírito Santo», aquele que «move o coração».

Em seguida, o Papa, como de costume, atualizou a sua meditação aplicando-a à vida diária de cada cristão e formulando uma série de questões: «Sou como aqueles de Éfeso que nem sabiam se existia o Espírito Santo? Qual é o lugar que o Espírito Santo ocupa na minha vida, no meu coração? Sou capaz de o ouvir? Consigo pedir inspiração antes de tomar uma decisão ou dizer uma palavra ou fazer algo? O meu coração está tranquilo, sem emoções, um coração fixo?». De facto, acrescentou, o problema é que para «certos corações, se fizermos um eletrocardiograma espiritual, o resultado seria linear, sem emoções».

Essa realidade espiritual está descrita também nos evangelhos, recordou o Pontífice, se pensarmos, por exemplo, nos doutores da lei: «acreditavam em Deus, todos conheciam os mandamentos, mas o coração estava fechado, rígido, não se deixavam interpelar».

Eis, então, o fulcro da reflexão: é preciso «deixar-se interpelar pelo Espírito Santo». Alguém, disse o Papa, poderia objetar: «”Sim, ouvi isto... Mas, padre, isto é sentimentalismo?” — “Não, pode ser, mas não. Se fores pela estrada certa não é sentimentalismo”». Assim como pode acontecer de ouvir dizer: «Senti vontade de fazer isto, de ir visitar aquele doente ou mudar de vida ou deixar algo...». O importante é «sentir e discernir: discernir o que se sente no coração», porque «o Espírito Santo é o mestre do discernimento».

De facto, determinados impulsos são positivos: «uma pessoa que não sente esses impulsos no coração, que não discerne o que acontece, é uma pessoa com uma fé fria, uma fé ideológica. A sua fé é uma ideologia, eis tudo». Isto está descrito no Evangelho: «o drama dos doutores da lei que repreendiam Jesus».

Portanto, é preciso questionar-se: «Qual é a minha relação com o Espírito Santo? Rezo ao Espírito Santo? Peço luz ao Espírito Santo? Peço que me guie pelo caminho que devo escolher na minha vida todos os dias? Peço que me conceda a graça de distinguir o bom do menos bom? Porque se distingue imediatamente o bom do mau. Mas há aquele mau escondido que é menos bom, mas que escondeu o mau. Peço essa graça?».

No final das contas, a pergunta que o Papa hoje quis «semear» no coração de cada um foi: «Como é a minha relação com o Espírito Santo?». Isto é, cada cristão deveria perguntar-se: «Tenho um coração irrequieto porque é movido pelo Espírito Santo?», e: «Peço a graça de compreender o que acontece no meu coração?»; e por fim: «Quando tenho vontade de fazer algo, paro e peço ao Espírito Santo que me inspire, que me diga sim ou não ou só faço cálculos com a mente: “Isto sim porque caso contrário...?”».

O compromisso é pôr-se à escuta: «O que me diz o Espírito Santo?». Não é por acaso, recordou o Pontífice, que o apóstolo João no Apocalipse, dirigindo-se «a cada uma das sete igrejas daquele tempo, inicia assim: “Ouvi o que o Espírito diz às igrejas”». Portanto, concluiu, «peçamos hoje a graça de ouvir o que o Espírito diz à nossa Igreja, à nossa comunidade, à nossa paróquia, à nossa família e a mim, a cada um de nós: a graça de aprender esta linguagem para ouvir o Espírito Santo».

          Transforming Tragedy Into Effective Maternal Mortality Prevention Efforts   

Sad and tired woman with PPD working beside table, looking on laptop, sitting in messy room

Making her way to her baby’s crib at the end of naptime, a 29-year-old, first-time mother falls to the ground unconscious. She never recovers.

Until that day, despite the exhaustion that inevitably accompanies life with a newborn, the young woman appeared to be recovering well from childbirth. Even though she’d battled hypertension throughout her pregnancy, after delivery, her blood pressure readings were normal and she was discharged.

Her family is bewildered and distraught. It will be several confusing and agonizing weeks before they learn what took the life of this young, vibrant mother.

While this may sound like the plot of a scripted medical drama, I’ve just described a real-life scenario. Each year in the United States, 700 women die during pregnancy, delivery, or soon after delivering, with causes ranging from cardiovascular conditions, to hemorrhage, to complications with anesthesia. Yet research shows that about half of those deaths may be preventable. A collaboration between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staff and colleagues at the CDC Foundation and the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is taking steps to strengthen state and local maternal mortality prevention efforts.

Maternal Mortality Review Committees

In the circumstance I described above, the death certificate would probably list hypertension as the underlying cause of death. However, that death certificate wouldn’t have captured the intersection of factors that likely contributed to her death — circumstances related to the patient, her providers, medical facilities, and community. It certainly wouldn’t offer clear recommendations for changes to prevent future deaths. For that level of investigation and action, we rely on the hard work of state and local maternal mortality review committees (MMRCs). These multidisciplinary groups of medical and public health professionals dig deep into individual cases of maternal death, examining medical records and any available social information for each woman to identify opportunities for prevention.

MMRCs have existed in various forms across the country for nearly 100 years, but largely work independently from each other, resulting in non-standard data collection that creates challenges for information-sharing between committees. The collaboration between our CDC team and our colleagues at the CDC Foundation and AMCHP is working to produce stronger data than ever before and foster collaboration that can lead to effective interventions. The collaboration is supported by funding from Merck, through “Merck for Mothers,” the company’s 10-year, $500 million initiative to help create a world where no woman dies giving birth. Merck for Mothers is known as “MSD for Mothers” outside the United States and Canada.

Stronger, More Detailed Data

In early February, CDC and our partners introduced the first, game-changing outcome of this collaboration to MMRC teams from across the nation. We debuted a data system—the Maternal Mortality Review Information Application (MMRIA)—that, when used, provides stronger, more detailed data across jurisdictions than previously available. MMRIA builds on lessons learned from implementing its precursor, the Maternal Mortality Review Data System (MMRDS). For example, as a result of feedback from MMRDS users, MMRIA was developed to capture increased detail on mental health conditions and substance use.

We also published a preliminary report of data from four states—Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, and Ohio—using this data-collection system. The report provides the first in-depth look at key factors contributing to maternal death and showcases opportunities for prevention from multiple states. For example, mental health conditions were found to be a leading cause of pregnancy-related death in these four states. More specifically, among postpartum women, suicide most commonly occurs 43 days to one year after delivery. This was something that previously available data hadn’t revealed. We also learned that causes of pregnancy-related death differ by age and whether a woman was pregnant, in delivery, or recently delivered. Finally, this report offers concrete evidence that a maternal death is most often the tragic result of a number of contributing factors, not just one singular event.

Currently, more than 30 states and cities have a MMRC and several are using MMRIA. As more states and cities participate, these data can help identify causes and contributing factors to maternal deaths and the prevention opportunities with the greatest potential impacts within and across jurisdictions.

To revisit our earlier scenario, an investigation by a MMRC may have determined that the young mother was released too early and recommended that in the future, hypertensive women remain in the hospital until their blood pressure readings are normal for a specified amount of time. Alternatively, concerned about her hypertension, perhaps the woman’s doctor asked to see her back within two weeks of delivery but she never showed. The MMRC investigation may have discovered that she missed her appointment because she lived in a rural area and her partner had their car, leaving her without transportation to an office an hour away. Other investigations might reveal this same scenario playing out for women across the region. In response, the MMRC could identify an urgent need for specialized care much closer to this community. MMRCs are uniquely positioned to consider all of the factors that are contributing to deaths and make recommendations that can make a difference.

The death of every mother leaves a hole — a child without a mother, parents without a daughter, and partners without their better half. However, we have an opportunity to prevent many of these deaths. The first step is strong, accurate data. We at the CDC are hopeful that our collaboration will give state-based MMRCs a tool they can use to collect the best data possible in their area — data which they can then translate into effective policies and programs that address all of the factors contributing to maternal deaths.

To learn more, please visit www.reviewtoaction.org. This new website promotes the maternal mortality review process as the best way to understand why maternal mortality in the United States is increasing and identify interventions to prevent maternal deaths. The site provides resources and tools to support standard review processes that enable a common language for review committees, including our new data-collection tool, MMRIA, and the data report, “Report from Maternal Mortality Review Committees: A View Into Their Critical Role.”


          Sebastian Pölsterl: Announcing scikit-survival – a Python library for survival analysis build on top of scikit-learn   

I've meant to do this release for quite a while now and last week I finally had some time to package everything and update the dependencies. scikit-survival contains the majority of code I developed during my Ph.D.

About Survival Analysis

Survival analysis – also referred to as reliability analysis in engineering – refers to type of problem in statistics where the objective is to establish a connections between a set of measurements (often called features or covariates) and the time to an event. The name survival analysis originates from clinical research: in many clinical studies, one is interested in predicting the time to death, i.e., survival. Broadly speaking, survival analysis is a type of regression problem (one wants to predict a continuous value), but with a twist. Consider a clinical study, which investigates coronary heart disease and has been carried out over a 1 year period as in the figure below.

Patient A was lost to follow-up after three months with no recorded cardiovascular event, patient B experienced an event four and a half months after enrollment, patient D withdrew from the study two months after enrollment, and patient E did not experience any event before the study ended. Consequently, the exact time of a cardiovascular event could only be recorded for patients B and C; their records are uncensored. For the remaining patients it is unknown whether they did or did not experience an event after termination of the study. The only valid information that is available for patients A, D, and E is that they were event-free up to their last follow-up. Therefore, their records are censored.

Formally, each patient record consists of a set of covariates $x \in \mathbb{R}^d$ , and the time $t > 0$ when an event occurred or the time $c > 0$ of censoring. Since censoring and experiencing and event are mutually exclusive, it is common to define an event indicator $\delta \in \{0; 1\}$ and the observable survival time $y > 0$. The observable time $y$ of a right censored sample is defined as
\[ y = \min(t, c) =
\begin{cases}
t & \text{if } \delta = 1 , \\
c & \text{if } \delta = 0 ,
\end{cases}
\]

What is scikit-survival?

Recently, many methods from machine learning have been adapted for these kind of problems: random forest, gradient boosting, and support vector machine, many of which are only available for R, but not Python. Some of the traditional models are part of lifelines or statsmodels, but none of those libraries plays nice with scikit-learn, which is the quasi-standard machine learning framework for Python.

This is exactly where scikit-survival comes in. Models implemented in scikit-survival follow the scikit-learn interfaces. Thus, it is possible to use PCA from scikit-learn for dimensionality reduction and feed the low-dimensional representation to a survival model from scikit-survival, or cross-validate a survival model using the classes from scikit-learn. You can see an example of the latter in this notebook.

          2017 Arkansas Times Academic All-Star Team   
Meet the best and brightest high school students in the state.

The class of 2017, our 23rd, is made up of athletes, coders, budding politicians and brain experts. There's rarely a B on the transcripts of these students — in not just this, their senior year, but in any year of their high school careers.

Back in 1995, we created the Academic All-Star Team to honor what we then called "the silent majority — the kids who go to school, do their homework (most of it, anyway), graduate and go on to be contributing members of society." Too often, we argued then, all Arkansans heard about young people was how poorly they were faring. Or, when students did get positive attention, it came for athletic achievement.

As you read profiles of this year's All-Stars, it should be abundantly clear that good things are happening in Arkansas schools and there are many academic achievers who deserve to be celebrated. You should get a good idea, as well, of how these stellar students are busy outside school, with extracurricular activities, volunteer work, mission activities and more.

They'll be honored this week at a ceremony at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with plaques and $250 cash awards.

Many college plans listed here are not set in stone, as students await information on scholarships and acceptances.

CAROLINE COPLIN-CHUDY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: Mount St. Mary Academy
Parents: (guardian) Dennis Chudy
College plans: Duke University

Caroline Coplin-Chudy has a 4.4 grade point average — high enough to rank second in her class at Mount St. Mary Academy — and lost her mother to leukemia during her sophomore year, something she told us came to be a source of inspiration and drive during her academic development. "It was a big adjustment. After my mom passed away, it was just my stepdad. It's a weird realization coming to the idea that both of your parents are gone, and it's just you. ... I still think of her every single day. She motivates me to do well in everything, because my whole life I wanted to make her proud." Caroline is president of Mount St. Mary's Investment Club and of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). She's also been a regular volunteer for several years at the Little Rock Compassion Center, whose recovery branch provides meals and health resources to people suffering from addiction. Caroline said she found healing from her own grief in the friendships she forged there. As the recipient of a Questbridge scholarship, described by Caroline's guidance counselor and nominator Amy Perkins as a program where lower-income students qualify for tuition to schools with which they "match" via an early decision process, Caroline will attend Duke University on a full scholarship. "I'm going to study biology and psych, with a minor in Spanish. My plan is to work at the Duke Center for Addiction [Science and Technology] helping people with drug addictions overcome that sort of thing. It's something that I've had experience with, watching my family go through things like that."

AXEL NTAMATUNGIRO
Age: 17
Hometown: Pine Bluff
High School: Subiaco Academy
Parents: Sixte Ntamatungiro and Sylvana Niciteretse
College plans: Rice University, neuroscience

Axel Ntamatungiro grew up among books and maps dispersed throughout his home that "paint[ed] the walls with nuanced shades of knowledge." It shows. Not often can a high school senior explain, as Axel does, his love for studying the brain so easily. "Neuroscience is basically a neuron turning on and off," he said. "The fact that you have billions of these combinations that lead to consciousness, that's unbelievable." To continue learning about the mind, Axel is headed to Rice University on a full ride as a QuestBridge scholar. Maybe medical school or graduate school after that. Axel said his parents taught him a "humble intellectualism" that helped him understand "the irrationality of life." They always told him: "Work hard, but you need to realize you don't always get what you deserve." And life has been, at times, irrational and difficult for his family. Axel was the only member of his family born in the United States — in Little Rock in 1999. The rest migrated from Burundi in the early 1990s. They stayed here as the Rwandan genocide inflicted incredible damage in the area. That past was never hidden from Axel. "Instead of avoiding my questions, my parents level-headedly answered [them], telling me about Belgian colonialism, Hutu-Tutsi tension and the systematic poverty afflicting Burundi," he said. Maybe that is why Axel has never been afraid to ask big questions. He said it also helped to have a diverse group of friends who taught him new things. At his cafeteria table for lunch are kids from all over: Nigeria, Fort Smith, Japan, Bentonville and Russia. Everyone's small stories add to a global perspective, something bigger from something small, kind of like those neurons.

JADE DESPAIN
Age: 18
Hometown: Springdale
High School: Haas Hall Academy (Fayetteville)
Parents: Brenan and Tiffany DeSpain
College plans: U.S. Naval Academy, nuclear engineering

For Jade DeSpain, the question, "Where's your hometown?" isn't necessarily as straightforward as it seems. The National Merit semifinalist, swimming star and Quiz Bowler spent much of her childhood in Beijing, where her parents — both fluent in Mandarin — taught her Chinese concurrently with English (and where, she notes, she acquired an "incredible prowess with chopsticks.") "We've moved around so much that I don't really have a 'hometown,' but Springdale is the closest I've ever gotten," she said. She's made her impact there, too, tutoring students free of charge through her volunteer work with the M&N Augustine Foundation and putting in time at the Arkansas Council for the Blind and the Springdale Animal Shelter. Jade is ranked second in her class, and her high school transcript is full of aced courses in trigonometry, physics and calculus. She's also the co-founder of Haas Hall Academy's coding club, so a career in nuclear energy development — Jade's field of choice — isn't just an aspiration; it's the plan. "I have a deep appreciation for nature," she told us, citing Devil's Den State Park as a spot to which she feels closely connected, and stressing the importance of preserving natural spaces and developing more long-term options for sustainable energy. On Christmas Day 2016, Jade checked her email to find that she'd attained something she'd wanted as early as age 12: acceptance to the U.S. Naval Academy. There, she'll major in nuclear engineering and complete her five mandatory post-Academy years in the Navy, after which she hopes to acquire a Ph.D. in the field.

AVERY ELLIOTT
Age: 18
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and Melissa Elliott
College plans: University of Arkansas, medicine

Though many of our All-Stars seem destined from birth for academic greatness, there is the occasional inspiring All-Star who has had to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. One of those is Cabot High School's Avery Elliott, who was born with nystagmus, a condition that causes involuntary eye movements that can make it hard for sufferers to concentrate and learn. Though it's hard to imagine it now, when she was in elementary school Avery found herself falling further and further behind her classmates in reading because of her condition. "That was difficult," she said. "I was behind schedule until about third or fourth grade. I would have to go home and really work with my parents to keep up with the rest of the class." Even though she struggled early on, Avery said that, in a way, the nystagmus contributed to her success and gave her a direction to follow. "I had to learn to really study even outside of school," she said. "I learned some very good study habits. But I think it also really affected where I wanted to go as far as my career. ... I really learned that a medical team can not only dispense medicine, but can really affect someone's life." A National Merit finalist who has volunteered extensively with Special Olympics and already completed 43 hours of college-level coursework, Avery has been awarded the University of Arkansas Fellowship. She plans to study medicine at UAMS after completing her undergrad degree, then practice in Arkansas. That goal has always pushed her to succeed academically. "I wanted to go into the medical field from an early age," she said, "so I knew starting out in high school that I needed to make very good grades in order to get where I needed to. I had to really learn the material, rather than just trying to ace a test."

JARED GILLIAM
Age: 17
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and LeAnne Gilliam
College plans: University of Arkansas, engineering

When most young people say they want to change the world, it's easy to believe that's just pie-in-the-sky thinking by someone who hasn't yet been through the Academy of Hard Knocks. When Jared Gilliam says he wants to change the world, however, there's a good chance he might actually pull it off. Jared even has a plan: He'll change the world through engineering. A National Merit finalist and AP scholar with a GPA of 4.18 and a perfect score of 36 on the ACT, Jared is well placed to do just that. A musician who plays percussion with the Cabot High Marching Band, Jared said his favorite subject in school is math. "I think I'm mostly interested in engineering because I've always been sort of a problem-solver," he said. "I've enjoyed math and science, working through things and finding solutions to everyday problems. This year, I've been in robotics, so we've spent time working on a robot to perform various tasks. I've enjoyed that a lot. I think engineering is where my ability would best be used." He'll attend the University of Arkansas, which has offered him the Honors College Fellowship. He said the drive to excel academically has always been a part of his life. "I've grown up being encouraged to do well, and I guess I have my parents to thank for that and all my teachers," he said. "I think knowing that I have the ability to do all of this, I feel compelled to do what I can to make a difference. I think life would be pretty boring if I didn't go out there and do all the things I do. I don't think I could settle for not being successful."

BENJAMIN KEATING
Age: 18
Hometown: Fort Smith
High School: Southside High School
Parents: Drs. Bill and Janice Keating
College plans: Undecided

If you were looking for a ringing endorsement of Ben Keating's character, you'd need to look no further than Amy Slater, the guidance counselor who nominated him for our Academic All-Stars roster and who said of Ben, "He is all the things I hope my son turns out to be. ... He really thinks about things, and he practices the trumpet and piano for hours a day. It's crazy, his dedication." Ben probably had something to prove here; he admits to some skepticism on the part of his mother when he announced he'd be pursuing a career in music. He's certainly proved his mettle; Ben is band president at Southside, was a principal trumpet for the 2017 National Youth Honor Orchestra, first chair for Southside's Wind Symphony and for the All-State Jazz Band and was ranked in the top-tier bands for All-State Band and All-State Orchestra each year from 2014-16. The accolades go on and on: Ben has received a Young Artist Award from the International Trumpet Guild, a Gold Medal from the National Piano Guild and superior ratings from the National Federation of Music Clubs competitions for over a decade. He plays for the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra and as a volunteer musician for the Fort Smith Community Band. Ben is still deciding where to attend college, but wherever he goes, he hopes to continue playing with an orchestra. Eventually, he wants to teach at the university level. "Ultimately," he wrote, "I want to use my passion to unite people of all different races, backgrounds and cultures. In today's society that is politically and culturally divided, it is more important than ever to share the universal language of music."

KATHERINE HAHN
Age: 17
Hometown: Hindsville
High School: Huntsville High School
Parents: Shannon Hahn
College plans: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, biochemical engineering

Katherine Hahn is ranked first in her class at Huntsville High School, which she attends because her hometown of Hindsville is too small to support its own school system. The population of Hindsville is "about 75 people," she told us. At Huntsville High, Katherine plays bass drum in the marching band and marimba/xylophone in the concert band and runs with the Huntsville cross-country team. Her real passion, though, is science. "I think I've always wanted to go to a college that was science-based and research-based," she told us. Her high school principal, Roxanne Enix, noted her own surprise when Katherine announced that she'd take 10 credits her senior year, instead of the recommended eight. "I thought she had lost her mind," Enix stated. Those credits, over half of which are in AP classes, are what Katherine hopes have prepared her for the rigorous workload at MIT. Aiming for a career in pharmaceutical development, Katherine plans to study biochemical engineering, something she said resonated personally with her as a result of her mother's struggle with skin cancer. "Biology helps me understand why medicine does the things it does," Katherine told us. "Whenever I first started out, I wanted to do environmental stuff," she said, but turned her attention to drug delivery systems after observing so many friends and loved ones battling cancer. "I want to help stop people from being scared of losing people," she explained. Katherine, a native of Tahlequah, Okla., who moved to Arkansas around fifth grade, has served on the Madison County Health Coalition as Youth Leader and was named Student of the Year in 2017 by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce and Huntsville High School.

GEORGIANA BURNSIDE
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Little Rock Christian Academy
Parents: Bob and Ann Burnside
College plans: Stanford University, biology and public policy

When this reporter mentioned to friends at UAMS that she'd just spoken to an amazingly poised, optimistic and intelligent young woman with a spinal cord injury, they said in unison, "You mean Georgiana Burnside." Her reputation as a teenager who at 16 was paralyzed from the waist down in a snow skiing accident but who considers the event a "blessing" no doubt goes further than UAMS, all the way to Denver's Craig Hospital, where she spent "the most memorable two months in my life," she said, and where she returns to continue her rehabilitation. What is a spinal cord injury? She answers that it is a) a life changed in a split second, b) finding out that a bad attitude is the true disability, c) a time to show off wheelchair tricks, and d) spontaneous moments of unfortunate incontinence. In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Georgiana writes, "my physical brokenness has developed wholeness in my heart about the capacity life holds for individuals regardless of their disabilities." In a phone interview, Georgiana, once a figure skater, talked about her work with Easter Seals, fundraisers for Craig Hospital, and giving talks and testimony about her faith. Georgiana has regained the ability to walk with hiking sticks and leg braces, thanks to the strength in her quads. And, thanks to support from the High Fives Foundation in Truckee, Calif., which sponsors athletes with injuries and which has paid for some of her rehabilitation, Georgiana returned to the slopes over spring break, skiing upright with the aid of long forearm equipment. At Stanford, she'll study to be a doctor, with a goal to return to Craig Hospital as a physician who'll treat other injured youths who, though they may have, like Georgiana, at first believed their life was over, will learn they have "a unique role ... enabling the advancement of society."

MITCHELL HARVEY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: North Little Rock High School
Parents: David and Susan Harvey
College plans: Likely Mississippi State University, chemical engineering

Mitchell Harvey is a big fan of the periodic table. "The elements are amazing little things," he wrote in his Academic All-Star essay. "They make up everything, yet we hardly see them in their pure form in everyday life." Mitchell decided they needed more exposure, so he started collecting examples of the elements and taking them to school for his peers and teachers to see. He extracted helium from an abandoned tank on the side of the road. He found zinc in wheel weights, grew crystals of copper with electrolysis and made bromine, which he describes as "a blood-red liquid that fumes profusely," from a "crude" homemade distillation setup and pool chemicals. Though you can buy sodium readily, Mitchell made his by melting drain cleaner (sodium hydroxide) with a blowtorch and then passing a current through it, separating the mixture into sodium metal, oxygen and water. His parents were OK with the procedure, he says, because he wore a Tyvek suit, three pairs of gloves, safety goggles and a face shield. While on a college visit in California last summer, Mitchell toured Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and was impressed by the large periodic table display exhibit there. So he decided to build one for North Little Rock High. He got money from the school's alumni group, the Wildcat Foundation, to pay for the supplies necessary to construct the 9-foot-by-6-foot display. He hopes to have it completed in the next two weeks and fill it with examples of elements he has collected, though he may need additional funding to pay for other elements. No. 1 in a class of 687, Mitchell scored a perfect 36 on the ACT. He's also an Eagle Scout, and led a project to plant 800 native hardwood seedlings at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park. After college, Mitchell said, he might start his own waste remediation business. "The business model I would be going for would be taking some byproduct that's hazardous and turning it into something useful."

CARSON MOLDER
Age: 18
Hometown: Mabelvale
High school: Bryant High SCHOOL
Parents: Kevin and Ruby Molder
College plans: University of Arkansas

Not everybody plays the mellophone and likes to draw up better interstate exchanges, but Carson Molder does both. The University of Arkansas Honors College-bound student, No. 1 in his class, likes to create three-dimensional schemes in his head, and has been creating road designs since he was young. But as a musician who plays the French horn in his school's orchestra and the mellophone in the Legacy of Bryant marching band, and who has won a band scholarship in addition to his Honors College reward to the UA, he said that one day he may be an audio engineer. "I'm going to put things together and see what sticks," he said of his future. Meanwhile, Carson said the internet has been his Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, taking him to new places that he otherwise could not get to. "I can count on my hands the number of times I have set foot outside Arkansas," Carson wrote in an essay for the Arkansas Times. But with the internet, "I can gaze into the redwood forests of California and the skyscrapers of New York City without leaving my desk." Without the internet, he said in a phone interview, "I would not be at the top of my class." Carson added, "It's not going to replace going out and visiting these things, but if you're a kid and don't have the money to go out, you can visit Yellowstone." Carson, who describes himself as "really ambitious," is looking forward to studying with Dr. Alan Mantooth, the director of the UA National Center for Reliable Electric Power Transmission. The UA, he said, "will provide me the tools" he'll need to succeed in graduate school, which he hopes will be Stanford University.

OLIVIA LANGER
Age: 18
Hometown: Jonesboro
High school: Brookland High School
Parents: Kelly Webb and Jonathan Langer
College plans: University of California, Santa Barbara, chemistry

You might think that a student who is No. 1 in her class and a National Merit finalist with nary a B on her high school transcript might not consider one of her greatest achievements her selection as her high school's drum major three years in a row. But here's the thing: Schoolwork comes easy to Olivia Langer. "I never had to work hard," she told us. In fact, her style of learning is "conversation-based," she said; she enjoys "debate without argument." But music was different: "I struggled at points, and had to put in extra work to be good." Her selection as drum major was "something I know I've worked for," she said, and she has enjoyed the responsibilities that come with it. "I like to take care of people. The band calls me band mom," she added. Beside numerous academic awards, Olivia also earned a 2017 state Horatio Alger scholarship for students who have overcome great obstacles. Hers, Olivia said, was financial: She's always had a place to stay and food to eat, but she hasn't been able to afford academic programs. "Honestly, I wasn't able to visit any of the colleges I applied to," she said. So she will see the UC Santa Barbara campus for the first time when she arrives this fall. She's considering a double major in chemistry and anthropology; she's interested in the evolutionary side of anthropology, and plans to seek graduate and post-graduate degrees.

REBECCA PARHAM
Age: 18
Hometown: Alma
High School: Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts
Parents: Eileen and Rick Parham
College plans: University of Arkansas or Hendrix College

On a visit to Hanamaki, Japan, with her school, Rebecca Parham noticed that once a month all the citizens would clean the front of their homes and shops. Folks would give each other gifts, too. "It was clear people tended to think for the whole," she said. "I thought that was really nice." An avid chemist, Rebecca did not just improve her Japanese on the trip, she brought those lessons of helping the community back to Arkansas. Her work has been at the intersection of heady science and community impact. In her robotics club, she noticed that girls were less likely to participate. "I decided that was not OK," she said. So, she designed a day with LEGO kits to encourage women to pursue STEM education. That desire to make an impact goes beyond school, too. For her senior project, Rebecca designed a test for homebuyers to see if meth had been cooked on their property (yes, meth). Her parents, on hearing of this project choice, asked her to "please explain a little bit further ... ." Here's the gist: The method of meth production in rural areas has shifted to something called the Birch reduction; older testing kits would no longer work. But Rebecca thought she could produce one that could. She designed a flame test. It finds lithium compounds left behind. The process of invention was "definitely frustrating," Rebecca said, but you "learn things you never thought of before." Rebecca did not plan to spend senior year in her dorm late at night "searching online" how to identify meth production, but she has a driving curiosity toward science and how it "connects to the world." She hopes to work in renewable energy — to be part of the global community, from Japan to Arkansas — making the world a nice place in which to live.

GRANT ROBINSON
Age: 18
Hometown: Searcy
High school: Searcy High School
Parents: Eric and Lisa Robinson College plans: University of Arkansas

Grant Robinson's father is a cardiologist, and Grant long figured he would follow in his dad's footsteps. But now he's not so sure. Last summer, he was selected, among thousands of applicants from around the world, to participate in a Stanford University summer engineering program. He got to experience a taste of college life, to take advantage of Stanford's decked-out labs and to tour the area to see results of civil engineering. The most memorable part of the program? Grant's small group built a Rube Goldberg machine — a complicated gadget that performs a simple task in a convoluted way — that, by Grant's estimation, was "the most complex and aesthetically pleasing" in the program. It included an electromagnet the group handmade and chemical reactions triggered by the machine. Grant's academic achievements are the byproduct of a natural curiosity. He said he spends what little free time he has exploring YouTube, trying to figure out the way the world works. Another influence: His father, who pulled himself out of poverty to become a doctor, has always instilled in him the importance of hard work. The message clearly stuck. Grant is second in his class of 263, with a 4.27 GPA. He scored a 35 on the ACT. He's a Presidential Scholar. His classmates voted him most likely to receive the Nobel Prize. He also participated in Project Unify (now known as Unified Champion Schools), an effort by the Special Olympics to get young people with and without special needs to come together for activities. Grant helped plan a basketball tournament as part of the project. In the fall, he'll be rooting on the Razorbacks at the University of Arkansas.  

JOHN SNYDER

College plans: Cornell University, industrial and labor relations

Whatever you were doing by your senior year in high school, chances are you probably hadn't already authored a book, much less a book on the complicated intersection of taxation and politics. John Snyder has, though. His book, "The Politics of Fiscal Policy," explores the political aspects of economics, including the pros and cons of various governmental tax schemes and their effect on government spending. It's for sale on Amazon right now. "It's pretty concise," John said, "but I wanted a way to express all my ideas in economic terms. That was a great way to do that." A history buff who serves as vice president of his class, John has a stunning 4.49 GPA and is ranked first in his class of 129. Though he wanted to be a lawyer when he was younger, his plan now is to go into investment banking. "Ultimately I want to have my own hedge fund — this thing called an activist hedge fund — and eventually I want to be actively involved in politics, whether that's in the midst of my business career or after ... . I'd love to run for public office one day." At Cornell University, John will be studying industrial and labor relations, a field that marries his love of multiple subjects. "Basically it ties in business, law, economics and history all into sort of one degree," he said. "You can do limitless things [with the degree]. Some people go into law school, some go into banking, some go to politics. That's why I chose that degree." John said his philosophy is that we have only a limited amount of time on earth, and so we should try to make the most of our lives. "I think there are a lot of things I can do to change the way things currently are in society, whether it's related to business or in academia or public policy," he said. "If I don't play a role in that and I'm not striving to do my best, I would feel like I'm wasting my potential."

PRESTON STONE

College plans: University of Arkansas, pre-med

Benton High School's Big Man on Campus — No. 1 in his class, captain of the football team, an AP Scholar, straight As — can add to his resume the fact that he helped build his home. Preston, his two brothers and his mother bounced around a bit after her divorce, from Texas to Arkansas, living with grandparents and friends, Preston said. Then the family was selected by Habitat for Humanity, and he and his brothers pitched in to build their house. "It was the first place I could truly call home and it allowed me the stability I needed to grow into the kind of student I am today," he wrote in his essay for the Arkansas Times. Preston, who also helped build a school outreach group called SERVE to help new or struggling students, also credits sports for giving him purpose. He recently volunteered to trade in the pigskin for a basketball, joining a team that played boys at the Alexander Juvenile Detention Center. "It was an awesome experience," Preston said in a phone interview. "We were a little bit nervous at first" at the detention center, he said, but the team enjoyed the game — even though they lost to the Alexander team, formed to reward inmates with good behavior. "They practice every day," Preston said. Preston has received a $70,000 Honors College scholarship at Fayetteville. He won't be playing football with the Razorbacks. Instead he is thinking of following a pre-med track that will lead him to sports medicine. He plans to go Greek, as well.

KARINA BAO
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Central High School
Parents: Amy Yu and Shawn Bao
College plans: undecided

Karina Bao embraces complexity. The Central High School valedictorian (in a class of 636) is a member of the school's back-to-back state champion Ethics Bowl Team, for which she said she spent hours "researching, discussing and sometimes even arguing" case studies. Unlike debate, she said Ethics Bowl is "really about the back-and-forth and considering different caveats and nuances and considerations" in issues ranging from local food to gender identity. As president of the school's Brain Club, she leads discussions on brain diseases, disorders and anatomy. It's a role for which she's more than qualified: She placed first in the U.S. Brain Bee, a youth neuroscience competition in which contestants answer questions about anatomy and make diagnoses based on patient actors. Placing No. 1 in the U.S. competition landed Karina a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, to the International Brain Bee, which happened to coincide with a Federation of International Neuroscientists conference, where Karina got to talk to scientists from all over the world about their groundbreaking research. She placed fifth in the international competition. A perennial outstanding delegate winner at Model United Nations competitions, Karina said Model U.N. has helped her to "not be scared of the complexity and interconnectedness of pressing issues we face today." In her spare time, Karina volunteers on the oncology wing of Baptist Hospital. "You don't get to do much," she said. "But at least we get to talk to people and help them with whatever they need and be there to listen." In her Academic All-Stars essay, Karina echoed the same drive for understanding: "The stories other people share with me become not my own when I retell them, but a part of humanity's collective spirit to understand each other. We grow from hours of listening and crying, to empathize, to have the strength and openness to pop each successive layer of the protective bubble that keeps us from seeing the very world in which we reside."

BRYCE COHEA

College plans: University of Tulsa or Vanderbilt university, biology

Though he grew up landlocked, far from the deep blue sea, Greenwood High School standout Bryce Cohea knew from an early age that he wanted to be a marine biologist. To reach that goal, Bryce had to start early. "In the ninth grade," he wrote in his Academic All-Stars essay, "I began planning out all my classes for the next four years. I wanted to graduate top of my class, and in order to do that I would need to take every advanced placement class and get an A in every class." That's exactly what he did, too, making nothing less than a perfect grade in every class for his entire high school career. With a 4.25 GPA and a rank of No. 1 in his class of 275, Bryce has volunteered extensively with the Salvation Army and collected shoes for the homeless; he helps unload trucks and stock shelves at the food bank at his church. A National Merit semifinalist, he also has the distinction of having scored the first perfect ACT score of 36 in Greenwood High School history. "I've honestly been a good test-taker," he said. "The first time I took it, I got a 34. After that, I got the test back and I worked on whatever I missed. After a few more tries, I got a 36." Bryce was still deciding on which university to attend when we spoke to him, but he definitely plans to study science. The subject has always interested him, he said. "I'm planning on majoring in biology and then specializing after that," he said.

Imani Gosserand has a journal in which she organizes the many moving parts of her life — competitive gymnastics, AP classes, computer science, Young Democrats, volunteering — into lists. Personal stuff is in there, too: bucket lists, remembrances. The journal combines the creative and the organized; it is problem-solving with an artful flare, which is how Imani operates. "I really like being able to create something of my own," she said of computer science. At a camp at Stanford University, in California, her team won the competition to program a car. Imani, not surprisingly, is good at math: She learned multiplication at age 4 and went on to skip two grades. Imani thinks schoolwork is fun. "We had a huge packet of homework problems we had to do over one of our breaks," she said. "And no one else was excited about it except for me. I was like 'Oh, I'm so excited to do all these problems!' " She brings that enthusiasm for problem-solving to bigger issues, as well. "I feel like there are so many opportunities for me because our world relies on technology, so I think I could go into any field," she said. She's excited to explore and see where she can help. "I want to meet people from around the world and hear different perspectives."

C.J. Fowler has long been around Democratic politics. His stepfather is former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. But C.J. said he decided to become more politically involved himself after he came out as gay. "The situation that I'm in is not great," he said. "People are not always accepting. But it's on me if I want to try to change that and make it better for the people who come after me. I have to make sure that my community and all marginalized communities have a seat at the table, because far too often a bunch of old gray white guys are making policies that hurt everyone else." The student body president of Central High, C.J. said he's tried to move the student council, a glorified dance committee, toward advocacy and activism for students throughout the district, whose future is being decided by those "people sitting in dark rooms." He said students too often get left out of the conversation about the district "because we're too young to have opinions. But we're not; we're living it every day." C.J. has been a fixture at Little Rock School District public comment periods. Though he can't point to any policy victories, he said at least LRSD Superintendent Mike Poore knows who he is and that he disagrees with him. C.J., who is also the executive director of Young Democrats of Arkansas, sees the backlash against President Trump as encouraging. "We're realizing that, if we're going to go all in for progressive values, we need to go all in." Rather than join the chorus of progressives in the Northeast after he finishes at Yale, C.J. says he wants to come back to Arkansas and possibly continue in politics. He admires state Sen. Joyce Elliott (D-Little Rock) and says he hopes if he ever holds office that he can follow her example.

SOPHIE PRICE

Parents: Claire Price and Scott Price
College plans: Vanderbilt University, political science

"Growing up, I would always argue with everybody," Sophie Price said. Sometimes it was just to play devil's advocate, but mostly, it was because Sophie wants to find the capital-t Truth. Some of this digging for truth is class: seven AP course just this year and 12 during her time in high school. But, some of it is also talking with people, discussing issues. "The best way to improve your argument is to hear the counters, to hear the other side," Sophie said, and often she is willing to be convinced. She wants to do the right thing; she believes in justice. Which is why after college at Vanderbilt on a full scholarship, she wants to field arguments as a judge. "My whole life I've followed this ideal that you have to do what's right," Sophie said. "I want to be a judge so I can kind of decide that." Vanderbilt was the only school to which Sophie applied. She knew it was the right one for her. She arrived in Nashville on a rainy day in January, but through the gloom, she knew. "Something about the beautiful campus and the intelligent people and these varying perspectives just sold me immediately," she said. In a few months she was back at Vanderbilt for a camp where she studied law, and it cemented the deal. "There was something so exhilarating about being able to have this case and have the facts and kind of create your own narrative and really advocate for someone that drew me in," she said. Watch out, because "everything I do, I want to give it a 120 percent," Sophie said.

MEAGAN OLSEN

College plans: University of Arkansas Honors College, chemical engineering

Fayetteville High School’s top student, with a perfect ACT score of 36, a 4.2 gradepoint average and the co-author of a paper on fractal self-assembly, is not just a bookworm. She’s a leader, her counselor Cindy Alley says, who shows “grit, motivation to succeed and a desire to help others.” She is also, Alley says, “a pure joy to be around.” In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Meagan talked about how she came to understand “ternary counters,” a base-3 method of counting in which only the digits 0, 1 and 2 are used. (Binary counters of 0 and 1 make up our computer’s “thinking,” as people with 10 fingers, we use base 10 to count.) Meagan, trying to make a “self-assembling ternary counter,” said she banged her head against “endless walls” for weeks. Then just after 1 a.m., she woke up with the answer. It’s a wise child who gives credit where credit is due: “I understood,” she wrote, “my mother’s advice about taking a break whenever I was upset.” Meagan’s paper on fractal self-assembly was published in the 22nd International Conference on DNBA Computing and Molecular Programing. She no longer lets frustration prevent her from solving a problem; sometimes, she’ll just sleep on it. Meagan told the Times she plans to attend a small conference this summer and then take some needed down time. She plans to use her degree from Fayetteville to pursue biomedical research.

          A Third of All Cancers Could Be Prevented With These Plant Based Nutrients   
Each year, over 10 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer, one million of them are Americans. While there is a common misconception that whether or not you will get cancer is pretty much luck of the draw, in reality, only about 10 percent of cancers are attributable to genetic factors.

As many as 90 percent of all cancers can be blamed squarely on lifestyle and environmental factors, and are entirely avoidable. And there is even more good news: An article in the journal Nature states that a third of all cancer deaths are totally preventable “through increased consumption of natural compounds” which prevent cell duplication and induce apoptosis (cancer cell suicide).

A Third of All Cancers Could Be Prevented With These Plant Based Nutrients

These powerful phytochemicals include curcumin, ursolic acid, epigallocatechin-3-gallate, resveratrol, sulforaphane and 6-shogaol. But, how exactly do they prevent cancer?

UT News explains that one way in which these special compounds fight cancer is by preventing inflammation. Chronic inflammation caused by conditions like obesity, autoimmune diseases and chronic infections causes cell damage, which in turn leads to cancer.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as many as 15 percent of all cancers are attributable to infections like Helicobacter pylori, human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis B and C, and Epstein-Barr virus. These powerhouse compounds strengthen the immune system to fight off such diseases, another way in which they indirectly help prevent cancer.


Let’s take a closer look at some of these potent cancer-fighting compounds.


Curcumin

Curcumin, the anti-inflammatory ingredient in turmeric, has been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for thousands of years. A 2011 study by the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discovered that curcumin has the amazing ability to differentiate between normal, healthy cells and cancer cells, causing apoptosis in the diseased cells, while improving the cellular health of the non-cancerous cells.

When DNA damage occurs, a chain reaction of gene activation or inactivation is triggered, which results in cells becoming cancerous. The researchers determined that curcumin halts cancer in its tracks by modulating this process.

Another study by researchers from the Zheijian Provincial People’s Hospital in China discovered that curcumin can even trigger apoptosis in triple-negative breast cancer cells, which are totally resistant to all conventional treatment.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a naturally-occurring polyphenol compound found in grapes, red wine and chocolate, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center reports that in animal trials, resveratrol was found to have antitumor properties and reduce cancer-causing inflammation.

A 2012 study by the University of Missouri School of Medicine reported that resveratrol naturally boosts production of two proteins known as perforin and granzyme B, which together target harmful cancer cells throughout the body. Prostate tumor cells already contain both these proteins, but resveratrol helps to produce even more of them, greatly boosting the chances of apoptosis and recovery.


Sulforaphane

Sulforaphane is a compound found in all cruciferous veggies, and particularly in broccoli. While mature broccoli still contains sulforaphane, levels are highest in young broccoli sprouts.

A groundbreaking 1991 cancer prevention study by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine focused on sulforaphane as a potent cancer preventer. The researchers found that this compound boosts Phase 2 enzymes in the body, which “neutralize the processes of disease.”

The Truth About Cancer reports, “[The] team fed broccoli sprout extracts to female rats for five days. They then exposed them and a control group to a carcinogen. The rats that had received the extract developed fewer tumors. Those that did have tumors developed smaller ones that took longer to grow than the control group’s did.”

It is heartening to know that some simple lifestyle changes like losing weight, incorporating daily exercise, opting for organic fruits and veggies and increasing consumption of these miracle compounds can significantly reduce our chances of getting cancer. So, drink more red wine, have some dark chocolate every day, find ways to incorporate turmeric, eat more broccoli sprouts, and give cancer the kiss of death!

          Where to start?   
I'm pondering a lot as I try to figure out what is really holding me back from reaching the goal I've set for myself in my weight-loss/weight-maintenance journey.

Where to start?

Where to start over?

Or...................

Where to just move on and take one day at a time?

The plan I've developed for myself over the years is a solid, healthy-eating plan with appropriate cardio exercise and, now thanks to the prompting of my Spark Team...

          From Work to Play   
There are a lot of things in life that we have to do, and many of them aren't the most fun.  Some things are completely out of our control.  We may have health concerns that require us to do things in order to care for ourselves, or we may have family that needs taking care of.  Our job may not be something we enjoy, but might be necessary to put food on our table or keep a roof over our head. 

And even when it comes to the things we want to do or enjoy doing, there are often aspects or tasks that we know we need to do, but may not particularly want to do.  If we play a sport, we know that practice will make us better, but it might be tedious.  Or we may need to do strength training or cardio so we can perform better.  We may love our family, but that doesn't mean that we necessary like changing diapers or cleaning the house.  And sometimes, we are just tired or not really in the mood to do the things we might ordinarily enjoy, but we know we need to do them anyways.

When we aren't enjoying the task at hand, it often becomes so much worse than it actually is.  We begin to dread doing it before we even start, and we drag our heels or try to distract ourselves.  We may fuss and fight the whole way, making the actual process harder than it needs to be.

I have been doing a 30 day manifesting challenge with Connie Benedict, and the topic of the quality of our actions came up.  The idea being that if an action isn't fun, then it might be an indication that the result of that action might not be in our best interest.  I think that when we set an eye on a goal, we should feel excited and jazzed up about working on it.  Now this doesn't mean that every step along the way will be fun and amazing, but if every step feels horrible, then perhaps you might want to rethink your goal.

So what do you do when you know you need to do something, are absolutely excited about the end goal, but one or two steps along the way just aren't your thing?  I know from personal experience, the more I can make any action or experience fun, the easier it will be.  And often the more I will get out of it as well.

One of the easiest ways to find the fun is to try different ways of doing something.  I love yoga, but I have found that some yoga videos I really can't get into.  Other people make holding those hard poses much easier simply by their own energy and personality.  I also know that I really dislike cardio workouts, but I have found some (like zumba) that I can get into (because they incorporate dance).  Perhaps you want to get in more exercise, but hate working out.  You may decide to start playing a sport, or take your dog to the park for regular walks.  Finding the versions of an activity that I actually enjoy turns what was something I dreaded to something that I actually start to look forward to.

Of course some actions are harder to twist than others.  I go with my mother-in-law to her doctors appointments (because she can't drive the the further away ones, and likes to have someone with her so that there are two people listening to the doctors and so she doesn't forget to tell them things).  Doctors visits are really never fun, and she can be quite impatient (understandably so when the doctors keep her waiting way beyond her appointment time). 

What helps me with these times is changing my perspective.  I try to not think about it as doing her a favor so much as showing her I care.  I like my mother-in-law, and I enjoy spending time with her (under normal circumstances).  So I tend the conversations, and try to keep her talking about things that are interesting to her instead of dwelling on the appointment or the fact that we are still waiting.  By making my focus on her instead of me, I find the time more enjoyable and I am not thinking about what we are doing, simply spending time with her.

I also use the time to practice my own patience (which serves me well also with hubby, who has inherited his mother's impatience).  When I think about focusing on my own calm, the time becomes practice time for me, time to challenge myself at remaining calm and keeping my own inner peace, no matter what the people around me are doing (doubly important because I pick up on other's emotions, so twitchy people tend to make me twitchy unless I work at keeping my own tranquility).

I also think that changing perspective can be used to turn tedious tasks into games.  As I was thinking about this topic, I kept thinking about kids movies where chores are changed with a little imagination.  I've actually seen programs for adults that present things like health goals (working out, eating healthy, and doing other self-care actions) into a fantasy game (like you might play on the computer).  You designate each of the things you are doing as a complimentary action in the game. 

So, for example, if you are wanting to work out three times a week for a month, you may draw (or print out) twelve monsters, and post the sheet on your fridge.  Each time you work out, it is the equivalent of slaying one of your 'foes'.  And at the end, when they are all defeated (and you have done your twelve workouts that month), you celebrate the victory.  If you are on your own, this might mean giving yourself a reward (like many quest givers in games give you a reward for completing their task), like a new pair of workout clothes or a day at the spa.

You can incorporate this idea with visualization to make distasteful tasks something else as well.  If you have to spend time at work with someone you don't care for, try changing how you perceive them.  You might visualize that they are your best friend, or someone you don't know but would like to.  One thing that works for me is to start coming up with stories about someone.  If they are always grumpy, tell yourself the story about what makes them grumpy.  Make the stories a little crazy.  So maybe they woke up that morning and their cat had eaten holes in all their boxes of cereal, so the kitchen was covered with a mix of cereal pieces.  And all their socks had disappeared, so they had to go look for them, and they found them all stacked in a pile in the bathtub.

It sounds a little strange, and it is, but what it does is get your mind focused on something else, something that (hopefully) is more enjoyable, than the current situations.  I also like to use this kind of visualization technique for things like long plane rides or other periods of waiting.  I may not have control over when things happen, but I can choose to make the wait time something that I have fun with instead of just staring at my watch.

I also find that if I can change my environment, that will often help me find joy in routine things.  I am not someone who likes cleaning (at all!), but I have more fun with it now.  I have a bright shiny red broom (because I had the choice of a black one or this pretty shiny red one, and of course I picked the red one!), and I tied bells onto the end of the handle, so that every time I sweep, bells sound.  Sound is cleansing, and that was one reason why I did it, but listening to the bells jingle as I sweep just makes me smile.  It's silly, but it makes me want to sweep so I can make the bells ring.

Scent is another way to change your environment.  When I am working on lots of writing (like during November when I try for 2k words a day), I do my best to make sure my desk is as pleasant as possible.  I may light a scented candle, or use an oil diffuser, or just put on perfume.  I pick scents that are soothing or invigorating, depending on what I feel like I need that day.  Just stopping and taking a deep breath, brings up the emotions that are triggered by the scent I chose.  It takes me out of the moment I'm in and lets me refresh myself and get back to the thing I am working on.

I also find that joy carries over.  If I am doing something that I really am not enjoying, I may find myself at a point where I need to just walk away from it.  I often go outside and just bask in the sunlight and take in nature.  Deep breaths and just letting go of any tension or frustration until I feel energized and happy again.  Then, I find that when I go back inside and start working on whatever it is, I am revitalized and the work seems to go faster.

It is important to know what brings you joy too.  Music is a huge thing for me.  There is always music, and if I need to pump myself up, I can swap up a song to something that makes me want to dance and take a little dance break.  I love music when doing things that I enjoy but have tedious bits, like cooking.  I like to cook, but sometimes watching a pot or mixing dough can drag on (and make your arm tired too!)  If I have music playing, I can be singing and dancing along, and minding my cooking doesn't seem like a chore anymore.

It definitely takes trial and error, but there is a lot of value in learning how to turn ordinary tasks into something more fun.  When you start to pick up on how to apply the things you love to the things you need to do, you can create an enjoyable experience wherever you are and whatever you have to do.  So, whenever you are faced with a task that you aren't looking forward to, try to figure out a way to bring the fun into it.  You might be surprised at what you end up with!

          The Fitnessista's Tabata and Strength Workout! Build and burn   

Today, I have a new workout for you that’s a mixture of two of my favorite things: Tabata and strength. You can read more about Tabata training here, but it’s a time-efficient way to maximize your cardio sessions. You work as hard as possible for 20 seconds, rest for 10, and complete 8 rounds for a total of 4 minutes in each Tabata rounds. Since you’re working to your personal maximum effort, you are huffing and puffing (ready for a break) when the 4 minutes are over. This is where the strength training kicks in. It will give you a chance to recover slightly before hitting the next Tabata round, but keep your heart rate elevated for a higher calorie burn during the entire session.

Here’s what the workout looks like:

 

Some guidelines:

 

-Do not do interval training if you’re just getting started in the fitness world. (And if you are just getting started in the fitness world, here is a big virtual high five from me!!) Interval training and Tabatas are a next step option for those who already have a solid cardio and fitness base. If you’re just getting started in fitness, build up your cardio by completing 30 minutes of moderate cardio most days of the week. (It’s not an all at once thing: start with 5-10 minutes and increase your time slightly each week until you reach 30 minutes.) Beginner friends: you can still totally do this workout.Just skip the Tabata intervals and instead do 4 minutes of cardio of your choice, whether it’s on the spin bike, Stair climber, treadmill or rowing machine. If you need to keep things low impact, taking the jumping out of any jumping moves. For example, instead of jump squats, do regular squats. Instead of jumping lunges, roll with quick (with awesome form) walking lunges.

-As always check with a doc before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and modify as needed!

-Tabata intervals can be completed by totally resting in between each 20 second round, or continuing to move at a low intensity. You could either stop squat jumping entirely for the first round, or continue to squat and keep momentum for 10 seconds. Totally up to you! For some people, they enjoy to continue moving, yet enable themselves to drop their heart rate, while others (like meeee) just like to stop and rest for 10 seconds.

-Need some burpee and pushup options? Here are some ways to switch it up!

          Menarini Increases Number of Members of the Board - for the First Time External Members In Majority    

Today during its Shareholders' Meeting, Menarini, the leading multinational drug company in Italy, appointed its new Board of Directors.

Together with Lucia and Alberto Giovanni Aleotti, confirmed as President and Vice President, and members Juerg Witmer and Domenico Simone, Eric Cornut joins the Board as its new independent member. Three members out of five are now external to corporate ownership.  
Eric Cornut, an experienced figure in the global pharmaceutical industry, followed a brilliant career in Novartis, one of the world's leading research companies with an important focus on oncology - an area where Menarini strongly dedicates its research - in addition to the cardiology and respiratory sectors.

At Novartis Eric Cornut was worldwide Chief Commercial Officer and Global Chief Ethics, Compliance and Policy Officer. He also served at Interpharma, the Swiss association of pharmaceutical research companies, and on the Executive Committee of EFPIA, the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, where he was also Director General.
Lucia Aleotti, President of Menarini: "We are certain that the addition of Eric Cornut as Member of the Board will strengthen our company's know-how and further enable us to face the challenges of international competition. Eric has a vast experience in the pharmaceutical industry, including the oncology sector, and holds recognized independence, in line with our goal of a qualitatively high-level and diverse composition of our Board. Furthermore," continues Aleotti, "his professional experience in global pharmaceutical compliance, along with his legal background, is in line with Menarini's philosophy based on respect for regulations and ethical codes of conduct worldwide."  

Menarini's governance is therefore reinforced with five Members of the Board. Eric Cornut is the third member to be external to company ownership, together with Juerg Witmer, appointed in 2013, well-known and highly knowledgeable of the Asian pharmaceutical sector, and Domenico Simone, who joined the Board in 2014 after a long career at Menarini at top-level positions with great knowledge of the company's competitive characteristics at the international level.

  • A Central de Resíduos está funcionando inadequadamente;
  • O refeitório do HMG é inadequado e deve ser desativado até se adequar;
  • Há falhas no funcionamento da equipe de rotina na UTI Neonatal.
A Prefeitura Municipal de São Gonçalo afirmou que muitas das exigências feitas pelo Ministério Público já foram sanadas. As demais, serão resolvidas até o dia 13 de julho.

Uma pergunta não quer calar: Será que as autoridades de nossa cidade aconselhariam suas filhas ou noras terem seus netos dentro do Hospital da Mulher Gonçalense?

Com certeza este problemão bateu à porta da prefeita Aparecida Panisset em péssima hora, dado que seu candidato à sucessão já está em campanha eleitoral informando continuidade de seu governo.

          A verdade sobre o relatório do CREMERJ em relação à fiscalização feita no Hospital da Mulher Gonçalense.   
Saiu na imprensa diversas matérias sobre o relatório da fiscalização Conselho Regional de Medicina do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (CREMERJ) após da morte de nove crianças. Entretanto houve falta de consenso da mídia sobre o verdadeiro resultado deste relatório.

O jornal O São Gonçalo publicou que não foi encontrado nada que levasse a crer que houve surto de infecção e no final colocou o subtítulo "Unidade oferece exames e tratamentos" e no texto dizia " Com 111 leitos, divididos em UTI's, maternidade e outras especialidades, o Hospital da Mulher Gonçalense (HMG) é o maior ponto de referência da Região Metropolitana na categoria. Inaugurado em 30 de março de 2010, passou por uma grande reforma, tendo seus ambientes ampliados." Esta matéria foi copiada para o jornal Estadão.

De outro lado, foi noticiado pelo jornal O Dia e o Portal G1, que o Hospital da Mulher Gonçalense não possui sequer o registro no Conselho Regional de Medicina do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (CREMERJ).

Então liguei para o CREMERJ para saber a verdade dos fatos:

O HMG possui ou não o registro do conselho?
O número de profissionais é adequado?
A unidade hospitalar realmente possui toda a aparelhagem para realização de exames e tratamentos?

Eis que consegui as seguintes respostas:

O Hospital da Mulher Gonçalense não possui registro no Conselho Regional de Medicina do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, isto não quer dizer que a unidade não pode funcionar, mas quer dizer que o CREMERJ não deu o seu aval para o funcionamento.

Entretanto o HMG não possui também a Certidão de Anotação de Responsabilidade Técnica (esta anotação define, para efeitos legais, o responsável ou responsáveis pelo empreendimento. Sem ela praticamente não se consegue definir num caso de uma ação judicial, o responsável legal pelos trabalhos¹.) e o Certificado de Inscrição de Empresa.

O número de profissionais é adequado somente para o número de leitos existentes, entretanto foi constatado que havia superlotação, logo não havia profissionais suficiente para atender a demanda do HMG prejudicando a estrutura de acolhimento e da sala de cirurgias, sendo que a superlotação foi encerrada após a fiscalização do CREMERJ e os noticiários da imprensa.

O CREMERJ durante a fiscalização descobriu também que o HMG não possui equipamentos necessários para realizar Ultrassonografia com Doppler e Cardiotocografia, o que seria indispensável para a maternidade.

O jornal O Dia foi o jornal que mais se aproximou da verdade dos fatos e novamente o jornal O São Gonçalo tentou ludibriar o povo.

Muito obrigado à assessoria de comunicação do Conselho Regional de Medicina do Estado do Rio de Janeiro pela transparência no atendimento ao cidadão e ao jornal O Dia pela reportagem séria e verídica.

E agora tudo está esclarecido!

          Baby dies after c-section delayed at Swedish hospital   

A baby died at a hospital in Vasteras after medical staff waited too long to carry out an emergency caesarean section, according to Sweden's watchdog the Health and Social Care Inspectorate. The woman was due to give birth when the midwife detected anomalies while listening to the cardiotocography monitoring, which uses ultrasound to register the baby's heart rate.

          How To Lose Weight Very Fast   
Looking for tips on how to lose weight very fast? If you are, keep in mind that rapid weight loss is often temporary These types diets (most of often they are diets) are good if you want to lose those few extra pounds before a date or beach trip, but they are not really for long term weight loss. Here are some good ways for how to lose weight very fast.

1. Sweat it out - Some of the easiest weight to lose quickly is your water weight. Of course everyone is different, but for some people it is possible to lose as much as five pounds in a few hours. Be very careful, though, because losing water weight can lead to dehydration. One point to note, though, is that in the long run, daily water consumption can actually help you lose weight.

2. Cut Carbohydrates- In learning how to lose weight very fast, you should know your body consumes and burns up carbohydrates before it uses up your fat reserve. As a result, either cutting down on carbs or eliminating them altogether will help to burn fat faster. Cutting out carbs, though it is one way on how to lose weight very fast, it is not the best way on how to lose weight very fast because it is usually temporary. Carbs give you energy and will help to build your endurance. Cutting cards may be a way on how to lose weight very fast, but in the long run, it is better to moderate carbs than to eliminate them altogether.

3. Eat More Often - In addition to being a way on how to lose weight very fast, this is a longer term strategy as well, but dividing your meals into smaller, more frequent portions will help you lose weight. This is because with every meal, your body's metabolism will be kicked into gear. More frequent meals means that your metabolism is constantly going, meaning you are able to burn more calories throughout the day, which is how to lose weight very fast.

4. Cut Soda - Regular soda is the ultimate in what is called "empty carbs" and is not a good way for how to lose weight very fast. Soda basically has no nutritional value and is like drinking liquid sugar. The sugar in soda is difficult to break down and eventually turns to more fat. You will be amazed at how to lose weight very fast simply by cutting out soda.

5. You Don't Have To Run - In trying to find how to lose weight very fast, some people run like mad on the treadmill hoping to burn those extra calories. However, your heart has different heart rate zones that contribute to fat burning and cardio endurance. The fat burning zone is actually at a lower rate, meaning you can lose more weight by keeping your heart at the fat burning zone than tiring yourself out in the cardio zone. This is a good way, then, for how to lose weight very fast.

If you are looking on how to lose weight very fast, you have to understand that the results you get are most likely temporary. One great program that teaches people how to lose weight more permanently is Strip That Fat. You can check it out at www.StripThatFat.com.

          Exposure to cardiovascular risk factors linked with arterial distensibility in adolescence   
(University of Turku) The longitudinal study on children and adolescents conducted by the Research Centre of Applied and Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Turku, Finland, is unique worldwide. The study shows that cardiovascular risk factors, such as overweight, high blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and insulin resistance, are associated with arterial distensibility in adolescence.
          Popular class of drugs reverse potentially harmful genetic changes from heart disease   
(York University) Beta blockers are commonly used world-wide to treat a variety of cardiovascular conditions, such as arrhythmias and heart failure. Scientists have known for decades that the medications work by slowing the heart rate and reducing the force of contraction -- lessening the burden of work carried out by the heart. However, new research out of York University has now shown that these drugs also reverse a number of potentially detrimental genetic changes associated with heart disease.
          Guiding Healthcare Technology Implementation: A New Integrated Technology Implementation Model   
imageHealthcare technology is used to improve delivery of safe patient care by providing tools for early diagnosis, ongoing monitoring, and treatment of patients. This technology includes bedside physiologic monitors, pulse oximetry devices, electrocardiogram machines, bedside telemetry, infusion pumps, ventilators, and electronic health records. Healthcare costs are a challenge for society, and hospitals are pushed to lower costs by discharging patients sooner. Healthcare technology is being used to facilitate these early discharges. There is little understanding of how healthcare facilities purchase, implement, and adopt technology. There are two areas of theories and models currently used when investigating technology: technology adoption and implementation science. Technology adoption focuses mainly on how the end users adopt technology, whereas implementation science describes methods, interventions, and variables that promote the use of evidence-based practice. These two approaches are not well informed by each other. In addition, amplifying the knowledge gap is the limited conceptualization of healthcare technology implementation frameworks. To bridge this gap, an all-encompassing model is needed. To understand the key technology implementation factors utilized by leading healthcare facilities, the prevailing technology adoption and implementation science theories and models were reviewed. From this review, an integrated technology implementation model will be set forth.

          American Heart Association and Helmsley Charitable Trust Announce $5.6 Million Commitment to Expand and Enhance Stroke Care in North Dakota   

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association has announced a statewide commitment of $5.6 million for its Mission: Lifeline Stroke initiative to expand and enhance stroke care in North Dakota. The foundation of this new initiative is a three-year grant of $4.3 million from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.

Mission: Lifeline is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s community-based initiative to develop systems of care to improve outcomes for heart attack and stroke patients. These systems bring together hospitals, emergency medical services and first responders, communications and regulatory agencies, state and local government, and payors to provide a seamless plan of action to treat patients from the time of symptom onset through their rehabilitation and recovery process.

Mission: Lifeline Stroke specifically focuses on connecting all the components of acute stroke care into a smoothly integrated system that reinforces the use of evidence-based guidelines to timely and effectively treat stroke patients.

“This initiative represents a significant investment in North Dakota’s stroke system of care, especially in our rural areas,” said Mylynn Tufte, North Dakota State Health Officer. “We are grateful to the Helmsley Charitable Trust for its commitment to important, lifesaving services to our citizens through the generous support for this program.”

Cardiovascular disease, including heart and stroke conditions, is the leading cause of death in the United States. The acute nature of heart attacks and strokes is particularly deadly and requires time-sensitive treatment to save lives and reduce lasting disability.

This is the latest in a series of Helmsley investments in Mission:  Lifeline’s system of care model for acute cardiac and stroke care. “We believe that a comprehensive approach is the best way to ‘move the needle’, especially for rural populations that face longer transit times and limited access to specialists,” said Walter Panzirer, trustee for the Helmsley Charitable Trust.

In 2011, the Helmsley Charitable Trust provided a $4.4 million grant to support the launch of Mission: Lifeline STEMI in North Dakota to reduce treatment times for acute cardiac care in the cases of ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI).  STEMI is the most serious type of heart attack and occurs when blood flow is completely blocked to a portion of the heart.

Every minute saved in heart attack and stroke treatment can directly improve survival and recovery rates.  Streamlining care requires a system-wide quality improvement approach to address many similar triaging, transfer, and treatment challenges in time-sensitive stroke care.

“Through this ongoing commitment from the Helmsley Charitable Trust, we are directly impacting the lives of all North Dakotans and for this I am very grateful,” said Shiraz Hyder, MD, a neurologist at CHI St. Alexius Health in Bismarck and the Chair of the North Dakota Stroke System of Care Taskforce.  “The Mission: Lifeline Stroke initiative will help us better coordinate stroke care, which will mean better outcomes for patients, and more lives saved. Time is brain when someone is having a stroke, so getting patients proper treatment faster, especially in rural areas, is crucial.”

Mission:  Lifeline Stroke will build upon the gains achieved in the past 10 years of successful work by the existing North Dakota Stroke Task Force by further strengthening the collaboration with stakeholders across the state representing hospitals, individual ambulance services, the North Dakota Department of Health, and others.  The project will enhance many critical elements of an optimal stroke system of care, including:

• A system-wide data tool to assess protocols used throughout the continuum of care;
• Coordination of treatment guidelines for EMS and hospital personnel;
• Regional plans for rapid transport and/or inter-facility transfer of patients;
• Strategies for reducing barriers to access and quality of telemedicine and rehab care;
• Development of a rural peer-to-peer stroke survivor support network; and
• A public education campaign focused on recognition of stroke signs and symptoms and the need to activate the 9-1-1 system.

The Helmsley Charitable Trust and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association launched Mission:  Lifeline in South Dakota in July 2010. From 2010 through 2016, Helmsley has committed nearly $37 million in funding for Mission: Lifeline projects in North Dakota, Wyoming, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Montana, and South Dakota. With the recent award for the Mission:  Lifeline Stroke project in North Dakota, the total Helmsley commitment to Mission: Lifeline projects is over $41 million.

          Cardiólogos de CEDIMAT presentan investigación en cónclave internacional   

SANTO DOMINGO. Recientemente la Asociación Americana del Corazón (ACC), por sus siglas en inglés, organizó una conferencia científica latinoamericana en México, en la que participaron cientos de médicos cardiovasculares de toda la región.

Durante el evento, se presentaron decenas de investigaciones donde los especialistas plantearon diversos temas médicos ante el gremio estadounidense. Entre los países participantes estuvo República Dominicana, que planteó tres investigaciones realizadas por CEDIMAT Centro Cardiovascular, siendo una de ellas seleccionada como la más destacada.

Dicha investigación, la cual consistió en dar a conocer la implementación del primer programa de angioplastia primaria para infarto agudo al miocardio en la República Dominicana, destaca que en los primeros 90 minutos del suceso se puede salvar la vida del paciente.

Los cardiólogos dominicanos César Herrera, Carlos García-Lithgow, Diógenes Cuevas, Samuel Zorrilla y Jeffrey Beltré fueron los encargados del estudio, galardonado por el doctor Michael Valentine, vicepresidente de la Asociación Americana del Corazón (ACC) por los avances en la investigación, ante otros especialistas procedentes de países como Argentina, Colombia, Brasil, Chile y México.

“Con esta investigación hemos logrado demostrar que es posible la integración sistematizada de las distintos tratamientos en el infarto, lo cual beneficiaría a toda la población, incluso cuando la opción inicial de tratamiento medicamento con drogas trombolíticas sea la que esté disponible a pesar de que la angioplastia sea la superior”, expresó Herrera.

Agregó que a fin de lograr el abordaje urgente y efectivo al infarto agudo, se requiere el establecimiento de políticas de atención de índole administrativa, de educación al personal de urgencias para su rápida identificación, de la disponibilidad de un personal médico, técnico y de enfermería 24/7, entre otros.

“El logro de nuestro estudio fue poder demostrar que tal cosa es factible en el país”, enfatizó

Otro aspecto destacado fue el protocolo que maneja CEDIMAT al atender Emergencias estos casos.

Los resultados de la investigación guiada por los galenos dominicanos serán dados a conocer el próximo año en la sesión científica del American College of Cardiology, donde participarán alrededor 18 mil médicos cardiovasculares destacados de 120 países.


          La diabetes, el gran problema de salud del siglo XXI   



UNA ENFERMEDAD MUY POCO DULCE



Si las cosas siguen como hasta hoy, para el año 2025 habrá más de 10 millones de mexicanos con diabetes, una enfermedad de aparición discreta, pero de terribles consecuencias.














EL MECANISMO DE LA DIABETES






¿Pero qué pasa con los diabéticos?
El problema que sufren es su incapacidad para aprovechar la glucosa-un tipo de azúcar-indispensable para obtener la energía celular necesaria.
Unas veces porque la insulina no es producida por el páncreas de manera constante y suficiente y, otras, porque las mismas células no responden a la hormona y no dejan pasar el azúcar a su interior. Entonces, los niveles de glucosa en la sangre se elevan anormalmente y provocan daños de muy diverso tipo que pueden a largo plazo desembocar un infarto, ceguera, neuropatía de la extremidades inferiores o severo daño renal.
La diabetes no es, sin embargo, una sola enfermedad. Cuando menos hay dos tipos principales: la I o insulinodependiente, que aparece en los primeros años de vida como la manifestación de un páncreas incapaz de sintetizar la insulina y la II o no insulinodependiente, la más común en nuestro país, y que se está convirtiendo en el principal asesino de los mexicanos en los años recientes.

  • Alimentación, obesidad y resistencia

    Cuando comemos, muchos de los alimentos que tomamos contienen hidrato de carbono o carbohidratos, que son moléculas de azúcar de diferentes tamaños y formas.
    Cuando llegan a nuestro intestino delgado son procesados para convertirlos en glucosa. Una vez la concentración de glucosa en la sangre detectada por el páncreas, vierte insulina y provoca una serie de reacciones hasta lograr un núcleo celular abra la puerta a la glucosa. Así después de comer, los niveles de azúcar se elevan, para más tarde regresar a concentraciones normales debido a la acción de la hormona pancreática.

El diabético tipo II no puede llevar a cabo este proceso. Los receptores de la insulina en las células de los músculos se modifican y se resisten a la acción de la Hormona.

La resistencia a la insulina es una fase previa a la diabetes propiamente dicha, que da a un círculo vicioso.
Ante el exceso de trabajo, las células beta de la glándula, encargadas directas de la generación de la hormona, terminan a la largo por fatigarse y dejan de trabajar.
Una vez que la concentración de la insulina decrece, la asimilación de la glucosa se torna todavía más deficiente y su concentración en nuestra sangre se pronuncia.



LOS REFRESCOS FAVORECEN LA APARICION DE LA DIABETES






Investigadores de la Universidad de California en San Francisco (Estados Unidos) aseguran que el mayor consumo de bebidas azucaradas e isotónicas, o refrescos con sabores de frutas, puede haber favorecido la aparición de nuevos casos de diabetes y enfermedades cardiovasculares en Estados Unidos durante la última década.
Estas conclusiones, dadas a conocer en un encuentro sobre epidemiología y prevención cardiovascular de la Asociación
Americana del Corazón, parten de los resultados de un modelo de simulación creado a partir de grandes estudios epidemiológicos realizados en Estados Unidos. Según dicho modelo, el aumento en el consumo de bebidas azucaradas entre los años 1990 y 2000 favoreció la aparición de 130,000 nuevos casos de diabetes, 14,000 nuevos casos de cardiopatía isquémica y 50,000 años de vida adicionales con una enfermedad coronaria a lo largo de esa década.
Este tipo de productos contiene entre 120 y 200 calorías según el tipo de bebida, por lo que los investigadores están convencidos de que pueden haber tenido parte de culpa en el aumento de la obesidad que se ha registrado en los últimos años en Estados Unidos. Además, a través del modelo han estimado que este incremento de enfermedades cardiovasculares ha provocado un gasto sanitario de entre 300 y 550 millones de dólares. Y estiman que se pueden haber producido al menos 6,000 muertes y unos 21,000 años de vida perdidos por el aumento de las bebidas azucaradas.
¿Un impuesto para los refrescos?
Para evitar que la situación empeore en años sucesivos, los expertos en política sanitaria sugieren limitar el consumo de bebidas azucaradas incluyendo un impuesto de 1 centavo de dólar por cada 28.3 gramos de bebida, ya que aseguran que esta medida podría hacer disminuir el consumo en un 10 por ciento.

La Asociación Americana del Corazón recomienda un límite máximo de calorías procedente de azúcares añadidos, que para las mujeres no debería superar las 100 calorías por media jornada, mientras para los hombres el límite sería de 150 calorías diarias.
PANCREAS ARTIFICIAL CONTRA LA DIABETES



Los pacientes con diabetes tipo 1 podrán controlar mejor su enfermedad en el futuro gracias a un nuevo páncreas artificial que utiliza un algoritmo computarizado para equilibrar los niveles de azúcar en el organismo.

En la diabetes tipo 1, el páncreas deja de producir suficiente insulina, una hormona que reduce los niveles de azúcar, y también de liberar suficiente glucagón, que eleva la concentración de azúcar en la sangre. El nuevo páncreas artificial, desarrollado por bioquímicos de la Universidad de Boston y del Hospital General de Massachusetts (EE.UU.), resuelve este problema casi como lo haría un órgano sano. Su mecanismo está compuesto por un monitor continuo de azúcar en la sangre, dos surtidores que inyectan ambas hormonas debajo de la piel y una computadora portátil, que ejecuta un programa capaz de calcular el nivel de hormonas necesita el paciente en un momento determinado.
Según describen sus creadores en un estudio publicado en la revista Science Translational Medicine, si bien aún no es una cura definitiva, la nueva tecnología supone un giro radical en el tratamiento de esta enfermedad crónica, que afecta a unos 285 millones de personas en todo el mundo.

ENTREGA INMEDIATA

Hay medicinas especializadas para tratar el cáncer o la diabetes que no
pueden administrarse por vía oral pero que deben consumirse de forma
intermitente durante largos periodos, proceso que llega a ser incómodo para los pacientes. Para solucionarlo, un equipo de científicos dirigidos por el doctor Daniel Kohane, del Hospital Infantil de Boston, Estados Unidos, creó un sistema inteligente que combina magnetismo y nanotecnología. Se trata de un pequeño dispositivo de menos de 2.5 cm de diámetro que encapsula el bfármaco requerido en una membrana de gel armada con nanopartículas hechas de mineral de magnetita, el cual se implanta bajo la piel del enfermo. Cuando
se aplica un campo magnético cerca del dispositivo, dichas nanopartículas se calientan y abren sus poros para liberar la sustancia en el cuerpo. Al
retirar la fuerza magnética, las membranas se enfrían, el gel cierra sus
poros y detiene la entrega de medicina. Aunque el dispositivo está en fase
de experimentación, de acuerdo con Kohan, quien dirige el laboratorio de
biomateriales del hospital, permitirá a los pacientes y a sus médicos
“determinar con precisión cuándo y en qué cantidades” se administran los
medicamentos, todo con relativa facilidad y prácticamente sin errores.

          Solutii pentru filtrarea apei - Purificare apa potabila   
Apa imbuteliata este exclusa ca si solutie alternativa din cauza transportarii si depozitarii necorespunzatoare a recipientelor, in urma studiilor constatandu-se compozitii chimice daunatoare. Afla alternativa simpla si eficienta, testata de catre mii de romani, pentru a obtine purificarea apei chiar de la robinetul bucatariei tale! Impactul poluantilor chimici asupra organismului Poluantii organici din apa sunt de o diversitate foarte mare, existand in prezent peste 10 000 000 de substante chimice, dintre care 600 au fost declarate ca prezentand un risc pentru sanatatea omului. S-a constatat existenta unei serii de compusi toxici care pot fi hepatotoxice, neurotoxice sau iritante cutanate gasite chiar si in conducte de alimentare cu apa potabila. Actiunea acestor substante se manifesta prin modificari organoleptice, cel mai des intalnite fiind substantele provenite din pesticide, din cauza degradarii lor incete dar si persistentei indelungate in apa, actionand negativ asupra ficatului, sistemului nervos sau asupra glandelor endocrine, presupunandu-se chiar ca ar avea actiuni cancerigene asupra oganismului uman. Datorita proprietatilor sale biologice, apa influenteaza calitatea sanatatii populatiei, iar cantitatea insuficienta de apa poate duce la mentinerea unei stari insalubre si implicit la raspandirea unor afectiuni digestive. Conform studiului efectuat de catre Ministerul Ecologiei, prin programul de aprovizionare cu apa a populatiei din localitatile rurale privind cauza maladiilor inregistrate in cadrul comunelor din Romania, s-au constatat afectiuni in cadrul aparatului respirator al consumatorilor de apa potabila in proportie de 6,3%, afectiuni cardiovasculare intr-un procent de 55,7% sau digestive intr-un procent de 11,4%. Conductele instalatiei de apa contin un procent ridicat de aluminiu sau plumb, acest aspect maximizand impactul negativ asupra consumatorilor de apa potabila, mai ales atunci cand apa nu circula si stagneaza pentru un timp indelungat, in special in timpul noptii, in combinatie cu clorul utilizat pentru dezinfectarea apei, cauzator pentru aparitia diverselor tipuri de cancer. Puturile reprezinta de asemenea o posibilitate ridicata de ingerare a unor substante chimice cu efect negativ asupra organismului, din cauza florei care se poate dezvolta pe peretii fantanii, cei mai afectati putand fii copiii. Supozitie: Consumul apei imbuteliate este un proces sigur / FALS Solutia rapida pentru renuntarea la consumul apei potabile curente a reprezentat achizitia apei imbuteliate, insa in urma studiilor efectuate in laboratoarele de specialitate s-au constatat compusi chimici datorati in urma transportarii si depozitarii necorespunzatoare a recipientelor in care este livrata apa imbuteliata. Depozitarea apei imbuteliate in contactul cu razele solare, precum si trecerea acesteia de la o temperatura la alta, reprezinta principala actiune cauzatoare de substante chimice nocive, la reactia dintre razele UV si materialul din care este confectionat recipientul, avand proprietati cancerigene. Misiunea Aquatech International Aquatech International si-a propus imbunatatirea stilului de viata al consumatorilor prin distributia si instalarea de echipamente profesionale pentru filtrarea, tratarea si purificarea apei, utilizand sisteme de filtre cu osmoza inversa, dedurizatoare clack, denitrificatoare sau sterilizatoare atat la nivel industrial cat si casnic.

          Adolescent obesity can take years off your life   

[USA], Jun 29 (ANI): A recent research has linked adolescent obesity to early mortality from cardiovascular diseases.

The large-scale, 45-year Israeli study found that higher BMI as well as BMI in the accepted normal range in late adolescence may be related to a higher risk of death in mid-adulthood from non-coronary non-stroke cardiovascular diseases such as fatal arrhythmia, hypertensive heart disease, cardiomyopathy, arterial disease, heart failure and pulmonary embolism.

Obesity, the most common nutritional disorder in industrialized countries, is associated with an increased mortality and morbidity of cardiovascular disease. This study specifically looked at adolescent BMI and death attributed to cardiovascular diseases other than CHD and stroke.

"Our findings show that adolescents with BMI values well within the currently accepted normal range may still be at future risk of cardiovascular diseases," said one of the study's authors Gilad Twig. "This is important because while CHD and stroke mortality of adults younger than 50 have declined in most western countries in the last two decades, non-CHD and non-stroke mortality has increased."

Researchers from the Israel Defense Forces, Sheba Medical Center and Hadassah Medical School in Israel analyzed data collected from 2,294,139 adolescents ages 16-19 in 1967 and followed them until 2011. Between 1981 and 2011, 32,137 deaths were recorded of which 800 were attributed to non-coronary, non-stroke cardiovascular deaths, whereas 3,178 deaths were attributed to cardiovascular mortality in total.

"Overweight and obesity at adolescence were tightly associated with increased risk for all study outcomes. The range of normal BMI is relatively broad and we also found here that adolescents with BMI at the high-normal end had higher risk than those in the low-normal end. Data shows that "optimal" BMI for 17 years old is at the low-normal range," Twig said. "Additional studies are needed to confirm these results in order to re-visit the currently accepted BMI range in adolescents."

The findings appear in Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. (ANI)


          Mild obesity can add years to one's life post heart attack   

[USA], Jun 29 (ANI): Mildly obese people often fare better after a major heart attack than normal weight patients, according to a recent research.

A study by UT Southwestern Medical Center cardiologists showed that in the three years after an attack, people considered mildly obese were 30 percent more likely to survive and spent fewer days in the hospital than those of normal weight.

"Mildly obese" was defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 34.9 kg/m2, compared to normal weight, which is a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9.

Patients of normal weight fared as poorly as those who were extremely obese, with a BMI of 40 or greater.

"I think the message from this finding is that if you've had a heart attack and you're overweight or mildly obese, you shouldn't necessarily try to lose weight aggressively in the initial period after the heart attack. The finding does not suggest that heart attack patients should try to gain weight if they are of normal weight," said first author Ian Neeland. "Also, doctors should focus more on heart attack patients who are normal weight and not assume that just because they're normal weight that they're probably going to be better off."

In the study, researchers examined records from 19,499 Medicare patients discharged after a heart attack involving total artery blockage, then compared them with later treatment records to determine how the patients fared over the next three years. All the patients were age 65 or older. The mildly obese patients did better than all other groups, while those who were of normal weight or extremely obese fared the worst.

The study appears in the European Heart Journal: Quality of Care and Clinical Outcomes. (ANI)

          The Best Cardio Workouts - Lose Weight Now!   




If you are looking for the Best Cardio Workouts, you may be surprised to discover that one oldie but goodie is still tops when it comes to results from cardiovascular exercises. So, what is the gem of an exercise?

Running!

The best workouts for the heart deliver results—whatever the results that you are looking for may be. There is no one size fits all perfect solution when it comes to discovering the best cardio routines. Running though is one of those exercises that has so many benefits it is nearly impossible to overlook.

Running as a cardiovascular workout routine, accomplishes many important things at once. It burns calories, strengthens bones, tones muscle, and increases lung capacity all the while building endurance. These are only some of the reasons that running consistently ranks high as one of the Best Cardio Workouts you can do.


Here are a few other reasons:
  • Convenient – you can do it anytime
  • Portable – you can do it anywhere
  • Inexpensive – a nice pair of running shoes is all you really need
  • Effective – calories are burned and appetite is suppressed
Other great cardio workouts you might want to consider in combination with running include indoor cycling and swimming. Each of these is well known for burning calories, conditioning the heart, and developing the lungs.

Swimming, when done seriously, can burn about the same amount of calories that running is able to burn. Swimming adds resistance to your exercises for just the right amount of burn for many people who like to feel their workouts later rather than while they are happening.

The Cons of Swimming:
  • Location – you are generally locked into specific locations to enjoy this cardio workout
  • Time – you must often enjoy swimming routines on the timetable of another person
  • Expense – if you do not own your own pool you often must pay fees to use pools for workouts
  • Inconvenient – there is much more than lacing up a pair of running shoes involved
This doesn't mean that swimming isn't one of the Best Cardio Workouts. If you can fit it into your schedule without too much upheaval it is an effective workout method.

Indoor cycling is believed by many to be another one of the Best Cardio Workouts your money can buy. The downside of course is that it takes a good deal of money to buy it. You must either pay monthly fees for the use of the equipment at your gym or you must purchase expensive equipment to keep in your home for cycling for cardio.

The most difficult thing for many people is sticking with a workout routine. Consider switching out one or two days a week with indoor cycling or swimming. Combining these Cardio Workouts with running can be very beneficial.


Always remember to check with your Doctor before beginning any new cardio workout!

Happy Jogging!

          Cardio WorkOut Plan - Why Do You Need One?   

Cardio Workout Plan - Why Have One?

Having a Cardio Workout Plan, will help keep you on track in order to achieve your goals. Without a plan, you may not realize the progress you are making and will get discouraged. It is also a way to reward yourself when you reach a certain goal. Keeps you Motivated!

The benefit of a workout plan is that you will always have something to do for that day. You are never left to flounder or get off your schedule. As long as you have a routine to follow, it is easy to stay on the plan. When you go wherever the wind blows, it is easy to lose track of what you should be doing and accomplish little, if anything when it comes to your fitness and/or weight loss.

Cardio Workout Plan - What Are Your Goals?

Is it to Lose Weight? Or perhaps there are some medical reasons, high blood pressure, anxiety, better circulation, hypertension, etc...

- What Should A Cardio Workout Plan Include?

From the beginning you need to have identifiable goals both big and small. Goals are important because they give you something specific to work towards.


Small goals can include specific weight goals, distance goals, or endurance goals.

Your goals are yours and yours alone. But, you need to have some goals that will be easily achievable as well as some that are a little more aggressive.

Your Cardio Workout Plan should also include a plan of action for meeting those goals. Goals without a plan is like a boat without a paddle. Your aren't going to be able to go anywhere, especially where you want to go.

The most difficult thing for many people who have worked hard to develop and implement a Cardio Workout Plan is sticking with it for the long haul. It is simple to see a few results and grow complacent, or worse, not see results quickly enough and give up altogether.

One way to overcome this is to include a few alterations or changes to your workout each week just to keep things from becoming stale. Consider switching out one day a week for a long bike ride or swimming laps.

This should be an integral part of your cardio plan in order to keep things going when the going gets tough or your routine becomes boring and/or ineffective.

Happy Jogging!

Always check with your Doctor before starting any new cardio workout.

          Benefits Of Jogging! What Is The #1 Benefit?   


There are so many Benefits of Jogging, more than can be mentioned here! The #1 Benefit of Jogging is Weight Loss. Jogging burns calories, lots of them.

As far as cardio exercises go, running is one of the most effective for burning calories. You can easily burn as many calories by running as you can with cross country skiing, swimming , or racquetball. But jogging can be done anytime of the year, in almost any location, and without renting or purchasing expensive equipment or court time. Because of this, you are more likely to stick with jogging more so than some of the other cardio workouts.

Running also aids in the weight loss process because it works to suppress the appetite. This loss of interest in food combined with the calorie burning that goes along with running is the One-Two Knockout Punch that many people are missing in their weight loss efforts.

Some of the other Benefits of Jogging to consider:
  • Builds Muscle
  • Releases Endorphins
  • Increases Bone Density
  • Relieves Stress
  • Increased Circulation
  • Better Respiration
These are all very important benefits to living a long and healthy life. So why not give it a try, go get you some good running shoes and some comfortable clothes and begin taking advantage of the Benefits of Jogging today!

Happy Jogging!

Note: Always check with your Doctor before starting a new exercise routine.

          Comment on Eating with Macros: A Day in the Life by Se   
Hi, I'm new to "tracking macros", so I have to say THANK YOU, a LOT, for showing this, now I getting to know how does this thing about macros works. I've been using MFP app since 2 months ago. I'm eating 3 meals a day (well, I guess 4 because I take a little snack after my workout) but my BIGGEST confusion is: Do I need to eat the same amount of carbs-protein-fat grams in every meal? or I can consume more grams of these, for example, in my breakfast? and less in the dinner, and so on, etc...? I weight 143, I'm 27 yo, my height is 5'4, and I want to lose 20 pounds, I've been eating well since 2 months and a half, (I've lost 11 pounds) and I've been working out (cardio+strength) for 3 weeks now, 6 days a week, 90 minutes or so in total. I've been consuming 1,200 calories, but since I'm not sure I've been doing "researches" about macros and I've been changing them (like 4 times). Today I changed them into 137gr carbs- 106gr protein- 27 gr fat and added 20 extra calories to my calories deficit. I feel that I don't really want to complicate about all this, I just want to lose weight, burn fat and have a lean body. Today I weighted myself (do it every week) but I did not lose even a pound, but I look thinner, I think it is because I have gained muscles (maybe because of the strength workouts 3 times a week) but the THING is that I really want to lower the numbers in my scale. Hope you can help e with the macros distribution, plus some advice, I'd really APPRECIATE IT. Thanks for reading me. Hope you can HELP me!

No 'Ritmo Brasil' deste sábado (1°) a apresentadora Faa Morena recebe no palco do programa Demônios da Garoa, Rodrigo Marim e a trupe do humorístico 'Encrenca', Tatola Godas, Dennys Motta, Ângelo Campos e Ricardinho Mendonça. A atração ainda exibe uma entrevista exclusiva com a dupla Jorge e Mateus, realizada nos bastidores de um show em São Paulo.


Durante bate-papo entre os convidados, Faa comenta sobre as redes sociais e Rodrigo fala das fotos sensuais que publica em sua conta no Instagram: "Tento agradar as fãs". Já o humorista Dennys afirma que nunca postou fotos sem camisa e brinca: "Para quê? Para perder seguidores?". Integrante de uma das duplas sertanejas de maior sucesso do país, Jorge se diz avesso ao WhatsApp, confessa que não usa o aplicativo e defende as conversas "cara a cara". "Há muitas pessoas carentes que precisam falar sobre coisas desnecessárias. Gosto de falar de coisas assim também, mas na hora certa", revela o cantor. Já seu parceiro Mateus diz ter vários grupos de conversa, conta que eles o mantém próximo de seus amigos, mas que não consegue acompanhar todos devido à rotina corrida de shows. "Ficamos muito tempo na estrada, não tem como ver nossos amigos sempre, então pelas mensagens consigo ter contato com pessoas que não vejo há dois ou três anos e, ás vezes, até mais. É um contato virtual, porém muito real", opina.

Líder do Demônios da Garoa, Sérgio Rosa é o convidado do quadro 'Café com a Faa'. Na conversa, o vocalista comenta sua relação com o cantor Wando, que faleceu em 2012 após uma parada cardiorrespiratória. “Tudo o que formos falar dele é redundância, um camarada irmão. Para a música brasileira ele foi um grande talismã”, diz. Ao falar sobre grandes  ‘lendas musicais’, Sérgio relembra momentos que passou ao lado de Elis Regina na época da repressão na Ditadura Militar e demonstra admiração por ela. “Se não a maior, uma das maiores interpretes da Música Popular Brasileira”, dispara, além de classificar Adoniran Barbosa como "a essência para o samba paulistano".

No quadro “Literando”, Faa indica a biografia do ex-líder do Beatles, 'Paul McCartney', escrita por Philip Norman. A obra conta a história desde a infância até sua carreira memorável de sucesso.

Apresentado por Faa Morena, o 'Ritmo Brasil' vai ao ar aos sábados, às 18h30, pela RedeTV!. A direção é de Marcos Morales.

           Mãe brumadense que vive em MG relata caso raro de obesidade com seu filho de 5 anos "me ajudem"   
Existem certos casos que desafiam a ciência e, dentro deste contexto, a brumadense Fabíola de Fátima Carvalho de 35 anos, nascida na Comunidade de Umburanas, zona rural de Brumado e que vive em São João Del Rei há muitos anos, entrou em contato com a equipe do 97News na busca de ajuda para o seu filho Guilherme Carvalho, de apenas 5 anos, o qual vem sofrendo muito com um caso raro de obesidade que ainda não foi desvendado pela medicina. Segundo ela, Guilherme já está pesando 61kg e o seu sofrimento vem aumentando de acordo com o peso já que não pode executar atividades peculiares às crianças como, correr, jogar bola, subir em escadas. 

O pai Germano Elias de Carvalho, de 40 anos, conta que é muito triste ver o filho numa situação desta e relata "ele é uma criança, ele quer brincar, correr com os amigos, mas infelizmente não consegue". Guilherme nasceu com cansaço respiratório, ficou na UTI uma semana, até receber alta e atualmente ele tem 61 kg e de acordo com a organização Mundial da Saúde, na idade dele, 5 anos deveria estar pesando entre 14 e 24 kg. A cada mês de vida ele adquire em média 3 kg, quando o normal, são 700g. 

A mãe conta que quando bebê, Guilherme mamava o tempo inteiro dizendo que "eu trabalhava agarradinho com ele, e ele mamando, e parecia que ele não tinha mamado. Eu o amamentei até um ano de idade, nos seis primeiros meses, era somente leite materno, e nessa época, ele já pesava 18kg.” Ela ainda relata outra situação muito constranges já que enfrente um forte preconceito, porque muitas pessoas pensam que os pais são os responsáveis pelo excesso de peso da criança, "você entra num lugar e as pessoas olham uma para outra e falam, olham estranho para ele, as crianças chegam e falam, que ele é gordo. 

Quanto postávamos fotos deles nas redes sociais as pessoas me criticavam, porque eu estava postando fotos de um menino gordo", conta chorando Fabíola. A mãe já procurou todo tipo de ajuda, nutricionistas, endocrinologistas, pediatras, cardiologistas, fez até exames para comprovar se Guilherme tem gigantismo, ou alguma outra disfunção genética, mas nenhum laudo aponta a causa do sobrepeso. 

Ana Carolina Valadares, pediatra do Guilherme diz que ele precisa com urgência da ajuda de uma equipe multidisciplinar citando que" não tem saciedade, a fome dele é excessiva, ele tem um atraso no desenvolvimento neuropsicomotor, o que eu acredito é que Guilherme precisa de um tratamento multidisciplinar em outra cidade que tenha o suporte para isso.

" O caso que desafia a ciência, é cercado de mistérios, mas Fabíola mantem a esperança e acredita que a medicina possa encontrar uma resposta. "Eu peço pelo amor de Deus que alguém que tiver vendo a minha história, que me ajude de alguma forma", finaliza chorando. Maiores informações e contato podem ser feitos por meio do telefone: (32) 99944-9722.

          Combate la diabetes tipo 2 con brócoli   
A esa conclusión llegaron investigadores de la Universidad de Lund, Suecia, quienes vieron que una sustancia de este alimento, el llamado sulforafano, impide que el hígado produzca glucosa, con lo cual la diabetes tipo 2 tiende a normalizarse. Durante la investigación también se analizaron las alteraciones genéticas que ayudan a producir esta enfermedad y vieron que el brócoli es capaz de corregirlas y así mejorarla. Principio activo Los científicos extrajeron del brócoli su principio activo con el n de tener dosis estándares. Así se probó en casi un centenar de pacientes, hombres y mujeres de entre 35 y 75 años, con buenos resultados y sin efectos adversos. Un hallazgo que permitirá combatir de mejor manera este problema de salud, que se estima que afecta a 1 millón 700 mil personas en Chile, y que según la Federación Internacional de Diabetes es una epidemia que sigue creciendo. El trabajo se publica en la revista Science Translational Medicine. "De varios nutrientes se ha dicho que tienen beneficios para la diabetes, aunque se desconoce cómo actúan. Y en ese sentido este estudio es único porque sabemos exactamente cuál es el mecanismo de acción del compuesto, el que actúa en el hígado de los pacientes", comenta a "El Mercurio" el doctor Anders Rosengren, del Centro de la Diabetes de la U. de Lund, y autor principal del trabajo. Se sabe que alrededor del 15% de los diabéticos tienen sus riñones dañados, y no pueden tomar ciertos medicamentos, como la metformina que mejora los niveles de insulina. Ellos ahora podrán usar esta nueva alternativa terapéutica: El extracto de brócoli. Y la potencia de ambos es bastante similar. Porque mientras los pacientes que tomaron este fármaco en el ensayo clínico redujeron en 23% su glicemia, quienes tomaron el extracto de brócoli lo hicieron en un 24%. Para el doctor Rosengren, también hay que considerar el uso combinado de ambos productos, lo que puede potenciar su efecto. "Este es un muy buen estudio, que confirma que el brócoli tiene grandes beneficios para la salud", dice Camilo Aburto, nutricionista y académico de la Escuela de Nutrición y Dietética de la Universidad Andrés Bello. Según explica, este vegetal es el que tiene efectos más potentes, pero es parte de una familia de alimentos que tienen similares beneficios como el repollo, la coliflor y los repollitos de Bruselas. Por esta razón, todo este grupo de vegetales se puede usar para hacer extractos para los pacientes diabéticos. "El sulforafano tiene un potente efecto antioxidante. En estudios clínicos previos se había visto que era útil también para tratar enfermedades inflamatorias y algunos tipos de cáncer", advierte Rosengren. "Se ha visto que mejora la salud cardiovascular y ayuda a prevenir el cáncer de estómago y pulmón", afirma Aburto. Según este académico, el brócoli también se ha visto que contiene luteína, que contribuye a la salud ocular, porque reduce el riesgo de daño de la retina que produce la diabetes. Otros alimentos que también son útiles: La investigación sobre alimentos funcionales, es decir, que brindan una ventaja a la salud de quienes los consumen, está en constante crecimiento. Para el caso de la diabetes también se recomiendan los siguientes. Almendras: comer un puñado al día, algo así como 10, ya que contienen ácidos grasos omega-3, que también ayuda a controlar la glicemia. Chocolate negro: mejora los niveles de insulina y reduce el azúcar en la sangre. Vino tinto: por su contenido de resveratrol y otros antioxidantes, mejora la resistencia a la insulina. Té: especialmente el verde, también corrige los niveles de insulina.

          Pharma Nord StatiQinon Nutritional Supplment 60 Caps   

Statins are synthetically manufactured drugs intended for lowering cholesterol, but there are also naturally occurring statins. For instance, the oyster mushroom naturally contains lovastatin. Lovastatin is also found naturally in red yeast rice. Randomised clinical trials have found natural statins to be effective.
How do the ingredients in StatiQinon work? StatiQinon is a new formulation product containing coenzyme Q10, Red Yeast Rice and ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid). Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like compound which practically all cells in the human body depend on in order to produce energy. Coenzyme Q10 is an important antioxidant and protects cell membranes from the damaging effects of free radicals. Red yeast rice, a dietary staple in some Asian countries, is yeast cultivated on rice. It contains 14 active compounds called monacolins, which have been shown to inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol. ALA stands for “alpha-linolenic acid” and is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that is found in plants. ALA may help reduce the build-up of fats in the arteries thus reducing cholesterol and triglycerides.
What is StatiQinon? StatiQinon Natural cholesterol balance StatiQinon is a natural supplement that is useful for anyone who wants to keep their cholesterol levels in the normal range and maintain good cardiovascular health. StatiQinon contains three active compounds: Co-enzyme Q10, Red Yeast Rice and ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid). How does StatiQinon work? Co-enzyme Q10: is stored in the mitochondria (power house) of every cell and is responsible for the production of energy. Tissues with a high-energy requirement such as the heart, muscles and liver contain more mitochondria within their cells. Coenzyme Q10 is also an important antioxidant and protects cell membranes from the damaging effects of free radicals. Red yeast rice: contains 14 active compounds called monacolins, which have been shown to inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol. ALA: May help reduce the build of fats in the arteries thus reducing cholesterol and triglycerides.
What do you take StatiQinon for? Cholesterol isn't all bad, our bodies need cholesterol for normal functioning and as long as the amount we have stays within normal levels, it poses no health issues. However, lifestyle and genetics can lead to an increase in bad cholesterol (LDL), which if left unchecked can lead to heart disease. Research suggests that each of the ingredients in StatiQinon may protect against the build up of bad cholesterol (LDL) in the body.
How much should you take? Pharma Nord recommends 2 capsules per day, or as directed by a physician.

          CARÊNCIA DE NUTRIENTES: Anemia não tratada afeta o coração   
A anemia – uma condição na qual o conteúdo de hemoglobina no sangue está abaixo do normal devido à carência de um ou mais nutrientes essenciais – atinge mais de 1,62 bilhão de pessoas, segundo dados da Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS). Ela acomete pessoas de todas as idades, mas em maior escala mulheres em idade fértil, grávidas, idosos e jovens em fase de desenvolvimento. A anemia pode ser causada pela deficiência de vários nutrientes como proteínas, vitamina B12, zinco ou ferro, contudo a do tipo ferropriva que tem como causa a deficiência de ferro é a mais comum e também a que pode levar o paciente a ter problemas no coração. Isso porque ela compromete o transporte adequado de oxigênio, um dos mais importantes mecanismos biológicos, o que aumenta o esforço que o coração faz e, em médio e longo prazos, pode afetar o funcionamento desse e outros órgãos. De acordo com uma pesquisa publicada no American Journal of Cardiology, realizada com 193 homens portadores de anemia, pelo SUNY Downstate Medical Center, em Nova Iorque (EUA), eles apresentam um risco maior de infarto do miocárdio, após um período de dois anos de surgimento de uma síndrome coronariana aguda.

          Obstrucción Vía Aérea por Cuerpo Extraño (OVACE)   
OVACE puede ser:
Leve: tose, por lo tanto puede respirar, entra aire. Aquí no debemos intervenir.
Grave: La entrada de aire es escasa, hay cianosis, no puede hablar ni respirar.
Inconciente: debemos ver si podemos extraer el cuerpo extraño
Tenemos una persona con el signo universal:
Primero le preguntamos si esta bien
Si solicita ayuda realizamos maniobra de Heimleich

.


Lo que hace esta técnica es aumentar la presión intraabdominal.
Entonces ubicamos nuestra puño bajo el esternón ayudándonos con la otra mano y presionamos firmemente hacia arriba.
Para embarazadas, se comprime en el centro del tórax.

Si no sale el cuerpo extraño, la persona caerá inconciente y tendrá un paro cardio-respiratorio
Debemos iniciar RCP. Antes de cada insuflación ver si se puede extraer cuerpo extraño.
Lo realizamos por 2 minutos antes de activar sistema de emergencia, pues sabemos que es por hipoxia.
Hacemos 30 masajes por 2 respiraciones.
Mantener las maniobras hasta obtener éxito o hasta que llegue personal especializado.

CADENA DE SOBREVIVENCIA PEDIÁTRICA

  • Lo primero aquí es la prevención
  • Luego viene la reanimación
  • Tercero es activar sistema de emergencia
  • Lo último es el tratamiento, medicamentos, etc.
  • Lo anterior es si estamos solos, si estamos acompañados llamamos de inmediato.

La Principal causa de paro cardio-respiratorio en niños es de tipo hipóxico, por lo que no necesitamos desfibrilar el corazón.
Luego que llamamos, debemos seguir con la reanimación.



La Principal causa de paro cardio-respiratorio en niños es de tipo hipóxico, por lo que no necesitamos desfibrilar el corazón.

  • Mayores de 1 año igual que adulto
  • Menores de 1 año en posición de olfateo, meato auditivo se alinea con línea anterior del hombro.
B MES. Si no ventila, igual adulto

C Pulso central: se toma pulso braquial a los menores de 1 año.
Masaje se realiza en línea intermamilar con 2 dedos en el centro del tórax o lo rodeamos con las manos el pulgar en el centro, ambos comprimen.

Comenzamos con 2 respiraciones boca-nariz o boca- boca. 15 compresiones en menos de 8 seg. si sabemos. Si estamos solos o no sabemos, 30 compresiones por 2 respiraciones

CADENA DE SOBREVIVENCIA ADULTO

Primero activamos el sistema de emergencia,
al presenciar un síncope.
Luego reanimamos
Desfibrilar
Tratamiento, medicamentos, entre otras.

La Principal causa de paro cardio-respiratorio en adulto es el infarto al miocardio, donde necesitamos desfibrilar el corazón, por esta razón, activamos primero el sistema de emergencia.
Si no hacemos reanimación, lo más probable es que el paciente no sobreviva.

Lo primero para nosotros, es que la escena sea segura para reanimar.
Nos acercamos y comprobamos conciencia. Otra persona puede llamar a 131, si no lo hacemos nosotros
Girar el paciente a posición supino. Realizamos ABC

Permeabilizamos la vía aérea, elevar mentón, siempre que no haya trauma cervical. Si no utilizamos elevamos desde ángulo de la mandíbula, solo si el paciente esta inconciente, pues duele mucho. Luego abro la boca, evalúo secreción u objetos.

MES: Mirar, Escuchar, Sentir la ventilación. Acerco oído a nariz, veo si se eleva tórax,
Si no ventila, doy 2 insuflaciones con la vía permeable y debe elevarse el pecho, si no es así, reposicionamos la cabeza
Si respira con eso, lo dejamos en posición de seguridad, decúbito lateral.

Pulso central: en adulto es el carotideo y es el último que se pierde en el shock
          Asfixia   

¿Qué es?: Inhibición del mecanismo de la respiración, teniendo como consecuencia un aporte deficiente de oxígeno a los tejidos del organismo.

Obstrucción:
Ingestión accidental de objetos
Alimentos
Inconciencia, donde la lengua obstruye la vía
Estrangulamiento

Sofocamiento:
Bolsas de plástico en la cabeza
Bebés boca abajo
Atrapamiento en lugares cerrados herméticos.

Aplastamiento con compresión del Tórax:
Impide que los pulmones se expandan. Ocurre en derrumbes y accidentes automovilísticos.

Por Inhalación de Aire Pobre en Oxígeno: En incendios o fugas de gas, grandes alturas y en
ahogamiento por inmersión.

Por Interrupción en Transporte y Utilización del oxígeno: En Intoxicación por monóxido de carbono y
con envenenamiento con cianuro.
Manifestaciones clínicas:
Desesperación y sobreesfuerzo por respirar
Cianosis
Perdida progresiva de la conciencia
Paro cardio-respiratorio

QUE HACER???

Primero intentamos que el individuo arroje el cuerpo extraño.
Adulto: Lo inclinamos y damos golpes interescapulares repetidamente y con
firmeza.
Luego de varios intentos fallidos, podemos realizar “Maniobra de Heimlich”
Si estamos solos, aplicamos el mismo principio, pero con una silla.
Si es un lactante: primero, sólo si es que vemos el cuerpo extraño, lo intentamos sacar.

Si no lo logramos, nos sentamos y ponemos boca abajo al bebé sobre nuestro antebrazo, afirmamos la mandíbula con la mano y hacemos 5 golpes interescapulares. Si no resulta, la volteamos y damos 5 compresiones sobre el esternón.
Criterios de Conn:
  • Etapa A: Conciente

  • Etapa B: Obnubilado
  • Etapa C: Coma
  • C1: decorticado (respuesta flexora al dolor).
  • C2: descerebrado (respuesta extensora al dolor).
  • C3: flácido (sin respuesta al dolor).
COMO REALIZAR LA MANIOBRA DE HEIMLICH?





Asfixia por inmersión o ahogamiento
  • Sacar del medio acuático
  • Permeabilizar vía aérea
  • Iniciar ventilación
  • Si hay P.C.R, iniciar P.C.R
  • Control segmento cervical
  • Cuidar la hipotermia
IMPORTANTE:

El inicio de una resucitación precoz (respiración boca a boca), aun en el agua, es la medida de mayor eficacia para mejorar el pronóstico.
Esta resucitación debe mantenerse sin interrupciones durante todo el tiempo que tome el traslado a un servicio de urgencia.
Evaluar la presencia de pulsos, en ausencia de éstos o con bradicardia menor a 60 por minuto, inicie masaje cardíaco coordinado con la respiración boca a boca.
Recuerde asegurar la permeabilidad de la vía aérea (sacar cuerpos extraños de la boca).
          Qué hacer en situaciones de urgencia?

          H2O Fitness - Get FIT, Get WET, and have FUN!   

Open Water Swimmer

No matter your sport, I totally believe we all benefit from water fitness. This can come in many forms. Some of my favorites I’ll talk about is lap swimming, water aerobics, and paddle boarding in my Get Fit, Get Wet Series. Any of these three will propel your fitness to the next level. I love a good challenge and nothing pushes me harder than myself! A rule of thumb with any program, but especially with water fitness activities, is you get out of it what you put into it. So, with that in mind, let’s break it all down and see if I can’t get you a set of gills and strong muscles.

Swimming:

I love swimming laps and open water swimming (OWS). You get a huge cardiovascular workout. You work/tone most all of the muscles in your body. You can challenge yourself with sprint sets, endurance sets, or a combination. You can also find balance by working all four strokes (butterfly, backstroke, breast stroke and freestyle) and using proper training equipment. My core feels strong, my upper body feels strong, my lower body feels strong, my posture improves, my mood lightens and basically I feel like a rockstar. Or a dolphin. :)

Nutrition and Hydration:

While I swim, I drink plenty of fluids during the first hour, either water or coconut water. If I’m swimming longer, I use an endurance drink or do either pureed fruit or a gel. I try to eat a light meal at least 60-90 minutes before I swim. I find the accountability of training with a team or a committed swim buddy is the best way to stay consistent. There are also dozens of open water swim races popping up all around the country. Swim/run races, too. Having set goals can keep one motivated, too.

Now, if you’re not a natural swimmer and really don’t feel you have good (or any) swimming skills, do not fear. Dear friend, you can still get started and learn and progress in time. Rome was not built in a day, Michael Phelps didn’t win the Olympics his first time in the pool, so you too, will learn and grow in this sport with practice. By the way, practice = training. Training = calorie burn. Check with your local pool to see if they offer a Masters Swim Program. Hands down, one of the best ways to learn all strokes properly and make friends. You can always recruit a swim instructor to give you group or private lessons. If you are a monkey see and do kinda learner (like me)… watch some online videos to see the proper strokes technique and tips. If you have someone with you, have them video you swimming, so you can see where you need to make changes.

Pool Exercise

So here is one of my favorite sets. It includes all four strokes, sprints, strength and a good calorie burn!

  • 300 warm up
  • 6 x 75 (free/stroke/free) stroke: alt between fly, bk, br
  • 6 x 75 (stroke/free/stroke)
  • 100 ez (free)
  • 300 kick (alt front/side/back/fly/breast)
  • 200 pull (free)
  • 8x25 sprint (free)
  • 200 cool down (choice)
  • TOTAL: 2200 meters or yards (depending on your pool)

There are plenty of resources for stroke development, workouts, and coaching.

Sounds great, but what do I wear?

OMG, the best part. There are so many cool suits for everyone, every age. I like a racerback style. Typically you buy based on your bra size, but check the sizing chart for the best fit. I also wear a lycra or latex swim cap even though my hair isn’t that long, and for me, Aquasphere goggles, ut choose goggles that fit you best. Not too tight; your eyeballs won’t like that and you’ll have funny circles around your eyes when you go to work. On the rare occasion I’m swimming alone and I need a little xtra motivation, I bring along my waterproof iPod. Ladies, I also spray a little conditioner into my hair under my cap; helps keep the chlorine from damaging my hair or so my hairdresser says. Last, I have a neat little TYR mesh bag to keep all of my swim toys, I mean training gear, in one place.

Lap Pool

Is the pool water cold?

You better hope so. Just like any fitness program, it takes a few to get warmed up, but once you do… it’s great. Same in the pool, I prefer an 80-82 degree pool. If it’s 84 or higher, it’s hard for me to swim as fast; it starts to feel like a bowl of soup. Colder than 76-78, and it sure motivates me to not rest very long. If I’m open water swimming then a wetsuit goes on below 78. That’s just my threshold, so find yours. I have temp thresholds for outdoor sports too. Just use your best judgement.

Safety:

In a pool: Always the best idea to swim with a lifeguard on duty. If your facility doesn’t require one, swim with a friend and find out if the front desk has a security camera in the pool.

Open Water: This list is not limited to just these safety tips, always use the local website for that area for full water safety recommendations and warnings.

  • Chose area that has a lifeguard on duty. If no lifeguard is on duty, swim with a friend. Always tell someone your training plan. Purchase a swim buddy floatation device.
  • Know your water environment. River? Current? Lake? Water Quality? Ocean? Tide/Current? Aquatic animals (sharks/jellies/etc)
  • Know sunrise/sunset times
  • Have strong swim skills for open water swimming
  • If possible, have support on a water vessel like a kayak or SUP.
  • Read posted signage

Any cons?

If I had one con about swimming it’s that I don’t have gills.

Well, that’s about it for my take on swimming laps/ows. Hey, feel free to shoot me an email if you have questions: kayla@mhomovement.com

          Instituto Dominicano de Cardiología gradúa 7 nuevos cardiólogos y 3 ecocardiografistas   

Santo Domingo.- El  Instituto Dominicano de Cardiología (IDC)  celebró este viernes un acto de graduación donde fueron Investidos nuevos especialistas en el área de cardiología y en la subespecialidad de ecocardiografía.

En la cuadragésima segunda promoción de médicos cardiólogos de esta institución, siete fueron los profesionales de la salud que se integraron al círculo de miembros de cardiología.

Mientras que la titulación de cardiólogos-cardiografístas fue otorgada a tres médicos; quienes se convirtieron en los protagonistas de la vigésima promoción de esta especialidad impartida por AIDC.

El director Médico de la entidad, Dr. Ernesto Díaz, encabezó  la ceremonia y expresó que el  trabajo arduo y la constante dedicación fueron los elementos esenciales para que esos jóvenes alcanzaran la meta, tras recibir una formación de calidad durante tres años.

De igual manera, Díaz manifestó la satisfacción de poner  a disposición de la sociedad dominicana profesionales íntegros y capacitados, a los cuales recordó que de su accionar depende la vida de muchas personas.

Los graduandos en Cardiología fueron los doctores Víctor Antonio Suárez Reyes, Suleica  Carolina Vittini del Carmen y Melvin Benjamín Medina Feliz, así como Eunices Madelin Tavarez Castillo,  Milcia Ramírez Sánchez, Cleisy Galva Mejía y Jiovanny Méndez Marte.

          Saving costs and the heart   

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a worldwide health problem, with it becoming the leading cause of mortality in India.

The post Saving costs and the heart appeared first on The Financial Express.


          Not just sticks and stones: Indirect ethnic discrimination leads to greater physiological reactivity.   
Objectives: We examined the effect of indirect ethnic discrimination on physiological reactivity (i.e., cortisol, blood pressure, heart rate) in Latino emerging adults. Method: Participants (N = 32) were randomly assigned to be exposed to indirect ethnic discrimination (experimental condition) or not (control condition) while undergoing a cognitive stress task. Results: Greater total cortisol output was observed in participants in the experimental condition, relative to those in the control condition. No significant differences in heart rate or blood pressure were noted. Conclusions: Results suggest that witnessing ethnic discrimination affects cortisol recovery responses, but not cardiovascular reactivity. Words that are not intentionally hurtful or directed at a specific person may still “hurt”—affecting biological processes associated with hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) axis and potentially leading to long-term health consequences.

          Exercise and Depression   
How to make exercise part of a depression treatment plan.
By Katherine Kam

Depression is draining. It can make any type of exertion -- going to the grocery store, cleaning up the yard, or exercising -- seem daunting.

"Energy loss is one of the key characteristics of depression. Some people feel that it’s the key characteristic of depression," says Robert E. Thayer, PhD, a psychology professor at California State University, Long Beach, an expert in managing mood, and the author of Calm Energy: How People Regulate Mood with Food and Exercise.

He points to exercise as one of the best ways for depressed people to lift their mood. "Exercise generates energy," Thayer says.

Here are Thayer's answers to questions about exercise and depression.

Can depressed people get into a vicious cycle if they feel stressed and overeat and don’t exercise and then become more depressed?

"Definitely. People self-regulate with food, and I think that’s one of the reasons for the obesity epidemic that’s occurring -- the combination of increased stress and depression going on for a long time and people needing to self-regulate, using food and other substances for doing that."

If depressed people begin to exercise instead, what happens physiologically?
"There’s a whole series of things that happen when we begin to exercise. As we get up and begin to move and exercise, there’s a general bodily arousal state that occurs. It includes many different systems of the body -- everything from metabolism to cardiovascular activation, various kinds of endocrine changes in the brain, various kinds of hormonal changes and shifts."

What happens psychologically when people start to exercise?
"It depends on the degree and level of exercise. With moderate exercise, [in our research] we’ve been working with short, brisk walks [of] five or 10 minutes. The primary mood effect in that situation is increased energy. Secondarily, sometimes -- but not always -- there’s a tension reduction."

"With more intense exercise -- for example, an hour of heavy aerobic exercise -- there is a reduction in energy and a reduction in tension. But oftentimes, after recovery [from the workout], there’s an energy resurgence that occurs."

Do depressed people have to exercise intensely to get a mood boost?
"No, it actually can occur fairly quickly. One of the things about our 'short, brisk walks’ studies really illustrates this point. People can think about ... how tired they’re feeling, then get up and begin to walk -- walking moderately, maybe quickly down the street for a short while. Immediately, they will begin to feel differently. As we’ve found with short, brisk walks of five to 10 to 15 minutes, there’s a significant increase in energy. They begin to feel it almost immediately."

"When people are seriously depressed -- with clinical depression, of course -- it may be not as efficacious as it would be for people in a normal state, but it still will have an effect."

If depressed people lack motivation to begin exercising, how do they get started?
"It’s a significant problem because when you’re depressed, you have no energy. When you think about exercising, you have no energy to try it. What I suggest is to start out very minimally, just getting up and walking a few steps or just down the street. Then as they begin to move a little bit, they start feeling differently, and they’re able to do some more."


Is the research strong enough to show a treatment effect? In other words, should doctors or therapists prescribe exercise for depression?
"Absolutely. I was giving a talk to clinical psychologists, and I mentioned that anyone dealing with a depressed person, an important thing they should do is put them on an exercise program. We often go toward various kinds of medications, but exercise is vital."

"Exercise should be part of a treatment plan for depression. The exclusive use of exercise for depression could be a problem for various reasons. But it should be part of an entire treatment plan."

MMA Training Workouts What An Ultimate Fighting Training Session Should Be

Mixed Martial Arts have become a very popular sport. MMA fighters are one of the most complete athletes out there with an extreme level of fitness, strength and endurance. Perhaps the only other type of athletes that come close to this level of fitness are rowers. That is why MMA fighters have to chose wisely when it comes to mma training workouts.

Because of the nature of the sport and the demands of each fight, it is important to develop an all around routine that will address strength, power, strength endurance, increase lactate threshold and of course, develop a good fighting technique like Brazilian Jiu Jitzu or Judo.

An MMA fighter needs to develop a very high lactate threshold, otherwise he will be throwing up in between rounds. A good way to do this is with high interval training like wall to wall sprints, kettlebell swings, etc. He or she also need to increase their endurance by doing long cardio sessions either swimming, running, biking or any other activity that will allow for a sustained effort for a long period of time, anywhere between 45 90 minutes.

Another good example of efficient MMA training workouts will include strength training consisting of pulling and pushing motions like squats, lunges, rows, pull ups and chin ups and core exercises like pull ups with knee raises, one of the most difficult exercises to do properly but that will develop a core of steel. Also, planks and side planks and modified versions of these exercises.

          Overweight teen boys have increased risk of stroke in later life   

"Boys who get fat in their teenage years are much more likely to suffer a life-threatening stroke as an adult, experts today warned," The Sun reports.

Swedish researchers suspect the association could be down to the effects of high blood pressure, a known risk factor for strokes.

The study involved almost 40,000 Swedish men, who were followed from childhood through to adulthood.

Researchers found men whose weight was normal at the age of 8, but who were overweight at the age of 20, had an 80% higher risk of having a stroke compared with men whose weight remained healthy throughout their teenage years.

The good news is the researchers found overweight teen boys who managed to slim down by adulthood only had a slightly raised risk that wasn't considered to be significant.

Much of the data was taken from school and military records, which means the range of available data is somewhat limited.

Other factors that might have contributed to stroke risk, such as smoking, exercise or socioeconomic group, weren't recorded, so couldn't be taken into account.

This limitation aside, the study does add more evidence to the general consensus that being overweight increases the risk of a number of adverse health outcomes, including stroke.

If your child's overweight, there are lots of things you can do as a parent to help your child become a healthier weight, including being a good role model, getting active, and providing healthy child-sized portions.

Where did the story come from?

The study was carried out by researchers from the Centre for Bone and Arthritis Research, the Institute of Medicine, the Bioinformatics Core Facility, the Institute of Biomedicine, the Department of Molecular and Clinical Medicine, and the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.  

It was funded by the Swedish Research Council, the Swedish government, the Lundberg Foundation, the Torsten Söderberg Foundation, the Novo Nordisk Foundation, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and the Anna Ahrenberg Foundation. The authors reported no relevant conflicts of interest.

The study was published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Neurology and is open access, so it's free to read online.

The Sun and the Mail Online generally covered the study accurately, but the headline "Boys who get fat as teenagers are '80% more likely to suffer a potentially deadly stroke as an adult' " doesn't provide a full picture of the results.

The 80% figure refers to males who became overweight during their teenage years and then stayed that way, compared with males who were always a healthy weight.

The researchers found overweight teens who managed to lose weight by adulthood had a raised, but not statistically significant, risk of stroke.

What kind of research was this?

This cohort study gathered data on the body mass index (BMI) of male schoolchildren. They were followed up over 50 years to see if there was an association between having a high BMI in early childhood or as an adolescent and the risk of stroke in later life.

randomised controlled trial for this type of research – forcing boys randomised into one group to have a high BMI and the others to have an average BMI – would certainly be unethical.

What did the research involve?

Researchers gathered birth weight, childhood and adult BMI data on 37,669 male participants living in Gothenburg in Sweden.

They compared this data with stroke outcomes later in life to see if there was a link between the timing of being overweight and stroke risk.

The birth weight of all men born in Gothenburg between 1945 and 1961 was collected, as well as direct measures of height and weight taken from centrally archived School Health Care records.

They also collected height and weight data of the men at a young adult age from military conscription tests. Conscription was mandatory in Sweden until 2008.

  • Childhood BMI (before puberty) was estimated at 8 years of age. Paired height and weight measurements between the age of 6.5 and 9.5 years were taken and adjusted using regression models to get the BMI at the age of 8.
  • Young adult BMI was calculated at the age of 20. Paired height and weight measurements between the ages of 17.5 and 22 were taken and adjusted using regression models to get the BMI at the age of 20.
  • BMI change through puberty was determined by the difference in young adult BMI and childhood BMI.

Childhood overweight was defined as a BMI of ≥17.9 kg/m2 and obesity as ≥20 kg/m2. The definition of being overweight as a young adult was a BMI ≥25 kg/m2 and obesity as ≥30 kg/m2. These definitions are standard for the measurement of BMI in children and adults.

Participants were linked to high-quality national disease registries, allowing links between the child and teen BMIs and later health outcomes. The mean follow-up from the age of 20 was 37.6 years.

The dates and diagnoses of stroke events and hypertension were taken from the National Inpatient Register and Cause of Death Register.

What were the basic results?

There were 918 stroke events, of which 672 were ischaemic strokes, 207 intracerebral haemorrhages, and 39 were undetermined.

An ischaemic stroke is where a blood clot blocks the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. It's the most common type of stroke.

An intracerebral haemorrhage is when a diseased blood vessel within the brain bursts, allowing blood to leak inside the brain.

  • For those classified as having a normal weight aged 8 and being overweight aged 20, there was an 81% increased risk of having a stroke compared with those who maintained a normal weight (hazard ratio [HR] 1.81, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.41 to 2.33).
  • For every standard deviation (two point) increase in BMI, boys were at a 21% increased risk of stroke (HR 1.21, 95% CI 1.14 to 1.28).
  • For every two-point standard deviation increase in BMI, boys were at a 19% increased risk of having an ischaemic stroke (HR 1.19, 95% CI 1.11 to 1.28).
  • For every two-point standard deviation increase in BMI, boys were at a 28% increased risk of having an intracerebral haemorrhage (HR 1.28, 95% CI 1.14 to 1.45).
  • There was a 71% increased risk of having a stroke for boys who were overweight aged 8 and 20 (HR 1.71, 95% CI 1.22 to 2.38).
  • Boys who were overweight aged 8 and a normal weight by 20 had no increased risk of stroke compared with those who maintained a normal weight.

How did the researchers interpret the results?

The researchers concluded that, "BMI increase through puberty and adolescence is associated with risk of adult ischaemic stroke and early adult intracerebral haemorrhage in men."

They proposed that, "High BMI increase during puberty might cause increased risk of adult stroke at least partly via increased blood pressure."

They further added: "The present study predates the childhood obesity epidemic and today's obesogenic environment may further enhance the observed associations with adult stroke events." 

Conclusion

The findings of this large longitudinal cohort study seem to demonstrate a link between being overweight aged 20 and an increased risk of stroke.

This risk was regardless of whether the boy had been overweight aged 8 or not. There seemed to be no increased risk for boys who were overweight aged 8 but were a normal weight by the age of 20.

The study was conducted before the obesity epidemic, and might be even more relevant today.

But there are a number of considerations to take into account before we draw any conclusions:

  • Participants were followed up until they were 52-68, so all the strokes occurred at a relatively young age. We don't know the outcomes for stroke events for the older age categories – it might be that this trend is only seen in strokes in younger people.
  • The vast majority of men who had a stroke were a normal weight aged 8 and 20. This means the number of men who had a stroke in each overweight category was small – between 5 and 67 men – which reduces the reliability of these comparative results.
  • The cohort was in a group of male participants in one city in Sweden. We don't know if the apparent link between high BMI in young adulthood and stroke risk applies to other populations or women.
  • There are many factors other than BMI that might have influenced the results. These weren't taken into account in this study, and include socioeconomic factors in childhood or adulthood, the men's level of education, and whether they smoked or exercised.
  • BMI measurements were only taken at two time points near the start of the study. It could well be that many people who were overweight aged 20 later became a normal weight, or vice versa, which might have affected the results.

Overall, the findings seem to back up the general consensus that being overweight leads to greater cardiovascular risk, including stroke.

It also suggests having a high BMI in childhood might not be much of a risk, as long as it doesn't persist into adulthood.

          DICAS ESPECIAIS PARA CUIDAR DE SEU CÃO.   

14 Ótimas Dicas Para Donos de Cães!

Se você tem um cachorro e, especialmente, se este for seu primeiro peludo, há uma porção de coisas que deve saber. Embora os cães sejam nossos melhores e mais afetuosos amigos e raramente reclamem, também são animais complexos, com necessidades igualmente complexas, que devem ser respeitadas por quem deles toma conta. Portanto, aqui estão 14 dicas que poderão tornar sua vida mais fácil e seu amigão mais feliz.
1. Aprenda a executar RCP (ressuscitamento cardiopulmonar) no seu cão


2. Se seu cãozinho fugir, não corra atrás dele!

Em vez disso, deite-se no chão como se tivesse caído. Isso deverá provocar o instinto protetor do animal e fazê-lo voltar.


3. Memorize esses 10 alimentos: todos são muito perigosos e até mesmo fatais para seu peludo


4. Se seu cão tem mau hálito, acrescente um pouco de salsa fresca à sua tigela de comida

A salsa possui altos teores de clorofila, que ajuda a tratar a halitose. 


5. Para escovar os dentes do cão

Se seu cão recusa-se a cooperar quando você tenta escovar seus dentes, ponha um pouco de creme dental canino na corda favorita dele e brinque um pouco de cabo-de-guerra.


6. Dica para banho

Quando você der banho no seu cão, coloque uma touca plástica em sua cabeça, cuidando bem para cobrir suas orelhas. Isso impedirá o xampu de cair nos seus olhos e evitará que a água entre em seus sensíveis ouvidos, causando uma infecção.

7. Se o seu cão se perder

Se o seu cachorro se perdeu, pegue uma peça de roupa que você tenha usado o dia inteiro, juntamente com o brinquedo favorito dele. Leve essas coisas ao último lugar onde seu cão foi visto e deixe-as lá. Considere também a ideia de levar a caminha dele e uma tigela com água, pois ele poderá estar com sede. Ao deixar os pertences do seu cão para que ele os encontre, deixe também um bilhete pedindo às pessoas que não levem nada dali, e explique o motivo. Este método é mais eficaz do que ficar dando voltas e chamando o peludo pelo nome.


8. Para os dias quentes

Para um delicioso lanchinho de verão, corte algumas maçãs, pepinos ou cenouras (o que for da preferência do seu totó) e congele-os em cubos de gelo feitos com caldo de galinha. Seu amigo de quatro patas ficará muito contente e agradecido por isso!


9. Cuidados com a ração

Guarde a ração canina seca em uma jarra de plástico. Facilita na hora de servir, além de ser rápido e higiênico.


10. Remover pelos do tapete

Um rodo pequeno é a melhor ferramenta para recolher aqueles pelos teimosos que ficam no tapete.


11. Como prender o cão

Se você tem o costume de prender seu cão do lado de fora de alguns locais, tenha sempre à mão um gancho tipo mosquetão para prender a guia.


12. Para o cão comer mais devagar

O seu cão come muito depressa? Experimente colocar uma bolinha dentro da tigela de ração. Ele será forçado a mover a bola para alcançar a comida e, enquanto isso, ele mastiga o alimento.


13. Parar parar com o hábito de urinar no tapete

Seu peludo fez xixi no tapete? Não se preocupe! Simplesmente coloque bicarbonato de sódio ou talco de bebê sobre a mancha. Espere até que seja absorvido, e então limpe com o aspirador de pó. Tanto a mancha quanto o cheiro desaparecerão.


14. Aprenda a linguagem de sinais do seu melhor amigo

          MSNBC Host Actually Talks to Trump Supporters, Viewers Lose It   

Much to the outrage of her left-wing viewers, on Wednesday and Thursday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle actually sat down with five doctors who voted for Donald Trump to talk about the Republican health care reform plan. As Ruhle posted clips of the exchange on Twitter, liberals came out of the woodwork to condemn the discussion. On Thursday, the host was forced to rebuke critics.

“We have been getting a ton of reaction, that’s good and bad, to the special roundtable I conducted with five physicians, all who voted for President Trump,” Ruhle explained as she introduced the second portion of the segment during the 9 a.m. ET hour Thursday morning. After hearing the doctors voice support for the GOP plan, the anchor scolded her audience: “I know people are so fired up they don’t want to hear someone with another opinion. But guess what? We need to hear other opinions and other viewpoints in order to get to a place of compromise and working together.”

She concluded: “If you don’t understand that what they’re thinking, how are you going to find the middle? Stop being mad, let’s find a solution.”

Ruhle was referring to an avalanche of criticism she received on Twitter from left-wing snowflakes who were upset that they actually had to hear from people with different political views for a few minutes on MSNBC before the network returned to its regularly scheduled Democratic Party propaganda.

Here is a full transcript of the June 29 segment:

9:38 AM ET

STEPHANIE RUHLE: We have been getting a ton of reaction, that’s good and bad, to the special roundtable I conducted with five physicians, all who voted for President Trump. We discussed several crucial aspects of the GOP’s health care plan in parts one and two, and we're reposting all of it on Twitter right now for you. Let us know what you think. And today, in part three, we talk about the price of health care and what needs to be done to bring it down.

President Trump looks – has looked at this and said this bill needs more heart. And across the board, we’re hearing people say “this bill is heartless, this bill heartless.”

DR. ANISH KOKA [CARDIOLOGIST, PENNSYLVANIA]: The more heart has to do with benefits that have been added for folks that are high-risk uninsurables, so for these high-risk pools, right? So I think it’s $50 billion over four years, plus an additional $60 billion, just for folks that are too-high risk to be insured by – in the regular individual market.

DR. NICOLE SAPHIER [RADIOLOGIST, NEW YORK]: A lot of people – there are people that cannot afford insurance without the subsidies because the premiums have skyrocketed. What we’re not accounting for are the people that are saying, “I’m really healthy, I live healthily, I do all the right things, these insurance premiums, why don’t I just save and pay for insurance – or pay for my health care with the dollars that I’ve saved.”

DR. JANE HUGHES [OPHTHALMOLOGIST, TEXAS]: We are not going to end up with a perfect bill here. This is a start and it has to go through this reconciliation process with the Senate.

RUHLE: Dr. Koka, what do you say to those who say, “Well, how is this going to help the poorest people? You’re just giving a tax break to the rich.”

KOKA: It does make for very bad optics. The problem is, is that, you know –

RUHLE: Take me past the optics.

KOKA: I mean, the problem is you’re trying to get health care legislation passed, you have 53 Republican senators [sic], you can’t get to 60 to actually write legislation like you did for ObamaCare.

RUHLE: Why are people dropping out of the exchanges? Why are insurance companies leaving ObamaCare?

KOKA: They’re still making a phenomenal amount of money.

DR. KEVIN CAMPBELL [CARDIOLOGIST, NORTH CAROLINA]: A lot of them have left.

RUHLE: But I’m saying, if it was such a blank check, if ObamaCare is the holy grail for insurance companies, why would so many drop out?

CAMPBELL: It’s also really good for hospitals.

RUHLE: How come in the medical arena nothing gets less expensive?

DR. ALIETA ECK [INTERNIST, NEW JERSEY]: Because government got involved. In 1965, we spent $210 a year per capita on health care. In 1965, Medicare and Medicaid started and a huge infusion of tax dollars just started to cause all kinds of excesses in the cost. And it’s never gone down.

KOKA: The pharmaceutical companies, you know, that’s 12% of the total budget. A full 33% of the total federal budget, $1 trillion, is spent on hospitals, right? Hospitals, large, nonprofit academic medical centers are the folks that are making – you know, when you get a bag of saltwater, saline, in the ER, that costs a thousand dollars.

CAMPBELL: Or a $10 Tylenol.

RUHLE: What gives you confidence that this bill is the start to help getting pharmaceutical costs down?

CAMPBELL: No one’s addressed the cost of pharmaceuticals. No one’s addressed regulating insurers and saying, “You know what? If you say you’re going to provide a service, you have to provide that service.”

RUHLE: This bill doesn’t either.

CAMPBELL: Exactly.

RUHLE: And if the biggest issue that we face is the influence lobbyists are having in the health care industry, how does this bill make it better for patients in America? Dr. Eck?

ECK: I always like to say that the Medicaid system spends billions of dollars and it makes millionaires out of hospital and insurance company executives, while it gives very poor care to the poor. The lobbyists are those executives and all those administrators. That’s gone up 3,000% while doctors have doubled in the same amount of time. The administrators are giving big bucks to the legislators who are then writing the laws.

RUHLE: Interesting conversation. I want to point out a lot of people asked me on Twitter Medicaid, do these doctors accept it? Well, of the five, three accept Medicaid and two do not.

And also, I know people are so fired up they don’t want to hear someone with another opinion. But guess what? We need to hear other opinions and other viewpoints in order to get to a place of compromise and working together. If you don’t understand that what they’re thinking, how are you going to find the middle? Stop being mad, let’s find a solution.


          Health-insurance expansion under the ACA linked to fewer sudden cardiac arrests   

After health insurance was expanded under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), significantly fewer previously uninsured middle-aged people died of sudden cardiac arrest, according to a study conducted in Oregon and published online today in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

As background information in the study points out, previous research has shown that health insurance leads to improved financial security, greater access to preventive medical services and more positive self-perceptions of health. But it’s been unclear if health insurance also has an effect on major health outcomes, such as the incidence of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

SCA occurs when an electrical disturbance in the rhythm of the heartbeat (an arrhythmia) causes the heart to suddenly and unexpectedly stop beating. In about 95 percent of cases, the person dies within minutes, mainly because quick treatment with a defibrillator is not available. SCA is not the same as a heart attack, which occurs when a major artery leading to the heart become blocked. Although both are serious, the heart doesn’t usually stop beating during a heart attack, although a heart attack patient may experience an SCA later, during the recovery period.

SCA is a leading cause of death in the United States, claiming about 350,000 lives each year. That’s about one life every 90 seconds.

Before and after

The current study is based on a comparative analysis of emergency medical services data collected in Multnomah County, Oregon, during a two-year period before the ACA’s insurance expansion mandate went into effect (2011-2012) and a two-year period afterward (2014-2015). The county is home to the city of Portland and has an adult population of about 636,000.

The analysis found that the incidence of sudden cardiac arrest dropped 17 percent among people aged 45 to 64 between 2011-2012 and 2014-2015. The incidence remained unchanged, however, among adults aged 65 and older — a group that has almost universal health coverage under Medicare

Most of the middle-aged adults in the study gained their insurance through Medicaid. Medicaid coverage grew in the county from 7.0 percent before the ACA to 13.5 percent afterward — a 93 percent increase.

“Cardiac arrest is a devastating and under-recognized cause of premature death for both men and women age 45 and older,” said Dr. Eric Stecker, the study’s lead author and a cardiologist at Oregon Health & Science University, in a released statement. “Health insurance allows people to engage in regular medical care, which is crucial for the prevention of cardiovascular disease and the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that can cause cardiac arrest.”

Limitations and implications

The study comes with several caveats, as its authors point out. Most notably, it is observational, which means it can show only an association, not a direct cause-and-effect, between greater access to health insurance and a lower incidence of cardiac arrest. Also, this research was a pilot study. Larger studies involving more diverse populations are needed to confirm its findings.

Still, the study comes on the heels of a review of past studies that have examined the influence of health insurance on various aspects of health. That analysis, published Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine, concluded that adults who lack health insurance have “poorer health and shortened lives.”

Specifically, the review found that people without health insurance are between 71 percent and 97 percent more likely to die early than those with health insurance. That means that for every 1 million Americans without health insurance, about 1,300 will die prematurely each year

An estimated 28.4 million Americans are currently uninsured, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Under the Senate Republican bill being considered as a replacement for the ACA, 22 million more people will find themselves without insurance in the next decade, according to an analysis, also released Monday, by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

          Sanitarios del Summa salvan la vida de un bebé que había nacido en un parto natural en domicilio que se había complicado   

bebé-recién-nacido

El pasado miércoles, una unidad del Summa tuvo que acudir a un domicilio de Madrid a atender un parto que se había complicado y en el que la recién nacida estaba en parada cardiorrespiratoria y no respondía a estímulos.

La madre, que había optado por un parto natural en su casa, contaba con la ayuda de dos matronas que tuvieron que llamar inmediatamente a los servicios de emergencia para salvar la vida de la bebé.

La niña venía de nalgas

summa-atiende-parto

El embarazo había llegado a término y la madre quería un parto natural en su domicilio familiar, por lo que decidió contar con la ayuda de dos matronas que estuvieron acompañándola durante todo el proceso.

Sin embargo, el parto se complicó porque la niña venía de nalgas y tuvieron que llamar al Summa, que se personó en la vivienda para finalizar el parto y salvar a la recién nacida que se encontraba en parada cardiorrespiratoria y no respondía a estímulos.

Los profesionales sanitarios lograron sacar al bebé de la parada y la trasladaron, ya con pulso, al Hospital Gregorio Marañón de Madrid.

Las redes sociales alabaron enseguida la actuación de los sanitarios del Summa pero sembraron, una vez más, el debate sobre si es adecuado, o no, dar a luz en casa teniendo en cuenta las complicaciones que pueden surgir tanto para el bebé como para la madre.

Sin embargo, las matronas insisten en que dar a luz en casa es seguro y las investigaciones realizadas en torno a este tema hablan de un menor trauma para la madre y el bebé, menor incidencia de depresión posparto y un mejor establecimiento de la lactancia materna.

   Yea!!!! Carter's appointment with the surgeon went really well. His labs showed that he was dehydrated. Which wasn't a big surprise since he is on the diuretic Lasix and he isn't drinking a lot of fluids. So Dr. Fortuna cut back his Lasix to 3 times a day.  Matt and I were also worried about his blood pressure medication. They had doubled the dose from before surgery. After talking with Dr. Fortuna he decided to go back to his presurgical dose.......yea!! He also removed his steri strips from his chest and his stitches from his chest tube sites. Nothing but healing wounds now!! Then we discussed in home tutoring and Dr. Fortuna said.........Carter can go back to school!!!! We do not have to wait 6 weeks. Yippee!!! He said as long as the environment is controlled and of coarse NO recess or gym class for 6 weeks then he felt it was ok for him to return. He still has to avoid infection. So he wants him to avoid crowds. He said to be extra careful. He can not be around those with coughs, colds, and definitely no one with the flu. I asked about the benefit this Saturday. He was real hesitant. He said it was too hard for us to control the environment. I think we have agreed on him going for dinner and staying for just a little bit. He will have to wear a mask. 7 years ago we should have bought stock in hand sanitizer....lol!!! Carter has an appointment with his cardiologist in Peoria on October 22nd and then a 2nd appointment with Dr. Fortuna his heart surgeon on October 29th!! Again I can not thank you all enough. We are so happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
          Friday afternoon   
    It's been a cloudy dreary day here in Peoria. Its raining pretty hard right now. You can hear the rain hitting against our 4th floor window. I hope its not raining back home. I will pray for sunshine in Geneseo for all the homecoming festivities!! Go Green Machine!!!
      We have had a relaxing day here. Dr. Fortuna stopped in early this morning. He said Carter will probably be discharged tomorrow or Sunday. Carter has pooped twice...I can't believe how exciting pooping has become here. I guess when you don't poop for 10 days it becomes a special occasion. They are going to stop Carter's IV fluids tonight. So we are hoping his central line can come out tomorrow. They also did an echocardiogram today. We haven't heard the results but no news is good news here. They always do an echo before discharge so they probably did it today instead of the weekend. I am sure it was just routine. He also has a chest xray daily. Doctor said cray is better every day. The last 2 nights his oxygen levels have dropped into the 70-80% range so he has needed oxygen during the night. The doctors are not concerned about it. I hope that gets resolved before we come home. And thinking about home. Oh man do we ever miss our home. We can't wait!!!! 11 days has been enough. I can't believe we were here 34 days when Carter was born. How did we ever make it through? The walls are starting to close in on us. On the brighter side.......this could be our last night. Yea!!!!!

          TURN VEGETERIAN TO LIVE LONGER    

If you want to live a longer, healthier life,
dropping meat from your diet might be a good idea.

In one of the largest studies conducted till date, it has been found that vegetarians live longer than meat eaters. After following more than 70,000 men and women over six years, researchers have concluded that those who followed vegetarian lifestyles enjoyed 12% lesser risk of death than non-vegetarians.
The participants were divided into five dietary groups — non-vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, pescatarians, lacto-ovo-vegetarians and vegans. It was found that people who are vegetarian tended to be older, more highly educated and more likely to be married.


They were also more likely to drink less alcohol, smoke less, exercise more and be thinner. According to researchers, all of these factors could play a role in their lower risk of death.

Interestingly, the study has found that the association between vegetarian diets and lower mortality was greater in men than in women.


Men had a lower rate of cardiovascular disease and death from heart-related conditions.

Previously too, vegetarian diets have been linked to a lower likelihood of developing chronic diseases like heart disease or diabetes while red-meat consumption, because of its high levels of cholesterol and saturated fat, is likely to clog up arteries.

          HEALTH BENEFITS OF GHEE   

Ghee is mostly considered unhealthy (and is unhealthy when consumed without any control on quantity), but there are a few parameters that make 'pure ghee' healthy.

"Pure ghee contains only those fatty acids or saturated fats that are primarily (89%) short chain fatty acids, unlike some other animal fats," says nutritionist, Pallavi from Evolve Medspa. She lists out the health benefits of pure ghee. Let's have a look.

Before you indulge in pure ghee, here are the basic guidelines:

- Consume pure ghee if you are free from cardiovascular diseases, are not overweight.
- Completely avoid ghee if you are obese.
- The recommended amount of fat consumed in the entire day is 10 to 15 grams per person.

So, is ghee healthy for you?

Regular consumption of pure ghee enhances physical and mental strength, and keeps the body healthy. It also helps in taking out the impurities from the body. It enhances eyesight, keeps muscles and tendons healthy.

For people with cholesterol problems, ghee is a better option as compared to butter as pure ghee is lower in fat than butter.

Because of lesser amount of fat in desi ghee, it is easier to digest.
Pure ghee can last for a longer duration of time. It can be stored without refrigeration.
Some people believe that ghee can restore balance to the mind and enhance brain function.

Ghee also helps in stimulating the digestive system and hence also aids in weight loss provided your diet is well balanced and you are exercising.

It is full of Vitamins A, D, E, and K. These vitamins are fat-soluble, meaning they have to be digested with other fat molecules in order for these vitamins to make it into our bloodstream. Ghee has lots of dietary fats (mostly saturated fats) that help our bodies absorb and make use of these vitamins.

Ghee is an excellent cooking medium because it does not break down in high heat like many cooking oils do, resulting in free radicals. Ghee has a high burning point, so it will neither smoke nor burn when cooked.

The body needs certain fats in its diet in order to perform vital functions, including protecting the stomach wall from digestive acids, building and strengthening cell membranes and supporting nerve, skin and brain health. The fats in ghee provide these benefits without any of the trans-fats, hydrogenated oils or oxidized cholesterol of butter and other oils.

Keep in mind, that we are only attaching these benefits to pure homemade ghee made with zero preservative or vegetable fats. Store-bought ghee or ghee prepared with any artificial methods will not fit in the same category as pure ghee.

          ESTRELA ROAD EPIC - 5 Subidas na serra da Estrela (Covilhã/Manteigas/Seia/Vide/São Romão)   


Resumo da Volta: Volta iniciada pelas 6,30h da madrugada, num total com cerca de 190 km de extensão, 6750 de a.a. relativo (valores parecidos para a descida, mas longe dos quase 10 mil que o Wikiloc apresenta neste track. Se quiserem o link do Strava, já são mais aproximados), a uma média de andamento de 18 km/h, durante mais de 11 horas a pedalar. Frequência cardíaca máxima de 178 ppm, e média de 133 ppm. Quase 7 mil Kcal gastas. Altitude máxima 1993 mt e mínima 285 mt. Vários números inerentes a esta VOLTA ÉPICA ficarão para sempre associados como records à minha tabela de valores, que retenho com o Relógio/cardio-frequêncimetro Polar. Assim é com os metros acumulados subidos e descidos, bem como as velocidades médias de descida e de subida.
Esta volta inicia-se na Covilhã (estação de camionagem) e faz a EN 339, primeiro até às Penhas da Saúde, e depois até ao cruzamento da EN 338 em direcção a Manteigas. Segue-se a descida até esta localidade banhada pelo Zêzere, e nova subida pelo vale glaciar, e em seguida, até à Torre, pela EN 339. Nova descida para Seia, via Sabugueiro, e respectiva subida até ao cruzamento para Vide/ Loriga, após a Lagoa Comprida. A subida após o Alvôco dá-se pela EM 518 via Casal de Rei e Cabeça, novamente até à rotunda de Loriga e daí pela EN 231, por Valezim, para São Romão. A última ascensão em direcção ao alto da Serra é feita pela EM 513, pela Nossa Sra do Desterro e central eléctrica. Depois de atingida a Torre, a descida faz-se pela EN 339, de novo até à Covilhã. Suplementos e alimentação: Levei comigo nos bolsos da camisola; 2 Barras energéticas de longa duração e um gel rápido da Decathlon, 3 cubos de marmelada embalados em casa, uma barrita de chocolate, alguns rebuçados “tipo Bola de neve”. Levei também dois bidons preparados com o pó hidratante da Sport Zone, e mais dois pequenos sacos, com mais duas recargas. Durante a volta, além desta bebida, consumi alguns litros de água engarrafada e da que ia bebendo das boas bicas que brotam um pouco por toda a serra. Uma lata de bebida energética e uma de Coca-cola. Além de outras bebidas que consumi nas 3 ou 4 paragens que fiz para alimentação sólida. Parei uma primeira vez no Sabugueiro, ainda quando descia para Seia, para beber o meu café da manhã, que pela hora madrugadora a que tinha saído para a estrada, ainda não me tinha sido possível fazer. Nessa paragem também comi um pêssego. Quando regressei a esta aldeia; - “A mais alta de Portugal”, e depois de ter ido a Seia a voltar, fiz uma nova paragem, agora com mais tempo, já que pedalava há bem mais de duas horas. Fui ao minimercado da localidade e comprei duas bananas. Uma comi no momento dentro de uma carcaça e a outra levei comigo nos bolsos. Depois de subir, e voltar a descer, desta vez para Vide, fiz nova paragem nesta localidade do Rio Alvôco, para comer a outra banana com pão e beber a referida cola. Voltei a subir, e descer, agora em direcção a São Romão. Aí parei no “snack Gato preto” e fiz uma refeição frugal, à mesa, composta por uma sopa e uma sandes de carne assada (que só comi metade, levando a outra parte). Ainda antes de atingir a Torre pela última vez, fez-se nova paragem na Lagoa Comprida, onde para além do resto da Sandes de carne assada ainda bebi uma mini. Chegado à torre e antes de iniciar a descida final, bebi uma radler e comi um folhado misto. – E pronto, já está! – É só fazer as contas às calorias ingeridas…lol…e subtrair as mais de 6500 que gastei…lol. Algumas Notas: Para fazer esta volta fui recolhendo alguma informação acerca das condições do trajecto, assim como alguns relatos de anteriores subidas, para tentar perceber se eu estaria preparado para fazer tal "empreitada". Posso dizê-lo (agora é fácil) que me custou bastante terminar esta volta, principalmente a penúltima subida desde Vide, pela estrada da Cabeça, e a última subida por São Romão até à Torre, onde acabei por parar mais de cinco vezes para baixar a ppm, que entretanto já iam saindo dos parâmetros. Posso no entanto garantir, que, apesar de tudo me custou muito menos do que eu estava á espera. - Isto é,; - Tinha algumas dúvidas se conseguiria fazer todo este projecto. Devo agora deixar aqui um agradecimento em forma de link, ao ciclista Jordão Alves, por ter sido através do seu vídeo no you tube que tomei conhecimento deste trajecto - Embora o meu seja ligeiramente diferente - e onde arranjei "coragem" PARA SEGUIR COM "ISTO" PARA FRENTE!
Fiz este trajecto com a minha Bicla de estrada; - Uma Trek 5200, com cerca de 8 kg. A transmissão tem à frente 53/39 e atrás 11/25. Se quiserem sofrer menos, levem uma k7 11/26. Acabei por ter que fazer uma colagem de tracks e construir alguns à mão, colando depois tudo, por ter ficado sem carga no telemóvel onde gravava o track. Daí os valores de altimetria estarem algo incorrectos. de qualquer forma estarei inteiramente disponível para ajudar quem queira fazer este trajecto, inteiro ou por partes. Boas pedaladas! Mais voltas de estrada no Blog nezclinas




TRAJECTO TAMBÉM NO STRAVA (...mais tarde ou mais cedo, tinha que ser...)










...Depois do centro de limpeza de neve, e ao pé do túnel, já perto da Torre. 
- Quase a terminar a segunda escalada do dia...





...No mesmo local, virado para as encostas da Covilhã e de Manteigas, pelas quais já tinha passado...
- Pela fresca é que se começa o dia. Estava quase a conseguir (com muita calma e tranquilidade) terminar esta primeira fase.





...Mais uma subida, antes de ter ficado sem bateria no telemóvel. 
- Uma das mais difíceis e compridas.
- Agora sou levado a pensar; - Mas elas são todas difíceis e compridas. Vá lá, se quisermos excluir a de Manteigas, que aliada à grande espectacularidade do vale glaciar, por onde corre o Zêzere acabado de nascer, nos alivia a alma das "maleitas" das pernas, criadas pelo desnível.


Resumo e digo:

Para ciclista de estrada que se preze, é um trajecto obrigatório. Seja por etapas ou nesta "empreitada", das mais conhecidas e prémios especiais da Volta a Portugal (Covilhã e Seia), às mais abandonadas e rudes (ai o piso não ajuda muito) nas estradas regionais 513 e 518, de Vale de Rei e Cabeça e da Sra do Desterro, ou até já referida EN 338 no vale do Zêzere, que ao pé das outras parece que vamos em plano...
- É um achado, este autêntico tratado!



BOAS VOLTAS... deseja o GR...


          2,5 milioni di italiani hanno vissuto esperienze premorte. Lo scienziato spiega cosa sono   

 

premorteDalla luce in fondo al tunnel all'osservazione di medici ed infermieri fuori dal proprio corpo, i racconti sulle esperienze premorte sono sempre di più: in Italia si calcola che ad averle vissute siano stati 2,5 milioni di pazienti, il 4% della popolazione. Ma cosa sono? E cosa possono dirci sulla morte?

A queste domande risponde ad Adnkronos il cardiolo Pim van Lommel divenuto celebre per il suo studio sulle Nde (Near Death Experience - Esperienze Premorte) intitolato "Near-death experience in survivors of cardiac arrest: a prospective study in the Netherlands" e pubblicato sulla prestigioso rivista The Lancet.

Cosa sono le esperienze premorte. "Una premorte può essere definita come il ricordo di una serie di impressioni vissute durante uno speciale stato di coscienza, con diversi elementi comuni: un'esperienza fuori dal corpo, sensazioni piacevoli, la visione del tunnel, della luce, dei propri cari defunti, il passare in rivista la propria vita, e il ritorno cosciente nel corpo" spiega van Lommel che le definisce anche esperienze trasformative poiché causano "cambiamenti profondi nel modo di cogliere la vita, elimina la paura della morte e rafforza la sensibilità intuitiva".

Quando si vivono queste esperienze. All'origine di queste esperienze può essere "un arresto cardiaco (morte clinica), uno shock a seguito di emorragia (parti difficili), un insulto cerebrale o colpo apoplettico, un quasi affogamento o un'asfissia, ma anche malattie gravi, episodi di depressione, isolamento o meditazione".

Arresto cardiaco e premorte. Gli studi del cardiologo si sono concentrati proprio sulla stretta relazione tra arresto cardiaco ed esperienza premorte. Dai dati raccolti è emerso che "durante l'arresto cardiaco, vi sono buone ragioni per dedurre che la coscienza non sempre coincida con il funzionamento del cervello: un'accresciuta consapevolezza, con eventuali percezioni, può talvolta essere esperita separatamente dal corpo". Insomma, in questo frangente la nostra coscienza si troverebbe "al di là del tempo e dello spazio".

E la morte quindi cos'è? Lo scienziato sostiene inoltre che la morte come la intendiamo noi sia in realtà legata unicamente al nostro aspetto fisico. Mentre se parliamo di coscienza, questa non ha né inizio, né fine: "Non si può evitare di giungere alla conclusione che la coscienza sia sempre esistita e continui a esistere indipendentemente dal corpo, e che essa non abbia né inizio né fine".

          Botanical Research Center Receives $7.5 Million NIH Grant   
The Center for Botanical Lipids and Inflammatory Disease Prevention at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center has received a $7.5 million, five-year competitive award announced by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Floyd “Ski” Chilton III, Ph.D., director of the center, said the grant is focused on studying a certain type of dietary supplements, known as botanicals, and how they prevent or impact diseases that have an inflammatory component such as cardiovascular disease, asthma and diabetes.
          Combate la diabetes tipo 2 con brócoli   
A esa conclusión llegaron investigadores de la Universidad de Lund, Suecia, quienes vieron que una sustancia de este alimento, el llamado sulforafano, impide que el hígado produzca glucosa, con lo cual la diabetes tipo 2 tiende a normalizarse. Durante la investigación también se analizaron las alteraciones genéticas que ayudan a producir esta enfermedad y vieron que el brócoli es capaz de corregirlas y así mejorarla. Principio activo Los científicos extrajeron del brócoli su principio activo con el n de tener dosis estándares. Así se probó en casi un centenar de pacientes, hombres y mujeres de entre 35 y 75 años, con buenos resultados y sin efectos adversos. Un hallazgo que permitirá combatir de mejor manera este problema de salud, que se estima que afecta a 1 millón 700 mil personas en Chile, y que según la Federación Internacional de Diabetes es una epidemia que sigue creciendo. El trabajo se publica en la revista Science Translational Medicine. "De varios nutrientes se ha dicho que tienen beneficios para la diabetes, aunque se desconoce cómo actúan. Y en ese sentido este estudio es único porque sabemos exactamente cuál es el mecanismo de acción del compuesto, el que actúa en el hígado de los pacientes", comenta a "El Mercurio" el doctor Anders Rosengren, del Centro de la Diabetes de la U. de Lund, y autor principal del trabajo. Se sabe que alrededor del 15% de los diabéticos tienen sus riñones dañados, y no pueden tomar ciertos medicamentos, como la metformina que mejora los niveles de insulina. Ellos ahora podrán usar esta nueva alternativa terapéutica: El extracto de brócoli. Y la potencia de ambos es bastante similar. Porque mientras los pacientes que tomaron este fármaco en el ensayo clínico redujeron en 23% su glicemia, quienes tomaron el extracto de brócoli lo hicieron en un 24%. Para el doctor Rosengren, también hay que considerar el uso combinado de ambos productos, lo que puede potenciar su efecto. "Este es un muy buen estudio, que confirma que el brócoli tiene grandes beneficios para la salud", dice Camilo Aburto, nutricionista y académico de la Escuela de Nutrición y Dietética de la Universidad Andrés Bello. Según explica, este vegetal es el que tiene efectos más potentes, pero es parte de una familia de alimentos que tienen similares beneficios como el repollo, la coliflor y los repollitos de Bruselas. Por esta razón, todo este grupo de vegetales se puede usar para hacer extractos para los pacientes diabéticos. "El sulforafano tiene un potente efecto antioxidante. En estudios clínicos previos se había visto que era útil también para tratar enfermedades inflamatorias y algunos tipos de cáncer", advierte Rosengren. "Se ha visto que mejora la salud cardiovascular y ayuda a prevenir el cáncer de estómago y pulmón", afirma Aburto. Según este académico, el brócoli también se ha visto que contiene luteína, que contribuye a la salud ocular, porque reduce el riesgo de daño de la retina que produce la diabetes. Otros alimentos que también son útiles: La investigación sobre alimentos funcionales, es decir, que brindan una ventaja a la salud de quienes los consumen, está en constante crecimiento. Para el caso de la diabetes también se recomiendan los siguientes. Almendras: comer un puñado al día, algo así como 10, ya que contienen ácidos grasos omega-3, que también ayuda a controlar la glicemia. Chocolate negro: mejora los niveles de insulina y reduce el azúcar en la sangre. Vino tinto: por su contenido de resveratrol y otros antioxidantes, mejora la resistencia a la insulina. Té: especialmente el verde, también corrige los niveles de insulina.

Pedigree Ann:

The phrase was "NEARLY incapable", and that he was- moreso than was the case for almost all others(with similar numbers of offspring). Who knows, part of the reason could be that he was particularly homozygous fast twitch, and/or factors related to (homozygously) cardio-pulmonary. Point was, the breadth of sire stats can sometimes offer meaningful clues. And, the topic here was KY Derby-a dirt race-, so you've found but one lone example on the dirt. Just take a look at the numbers of performers he had on dirt. On the opposite end, a Dynaformer, for one, had very, very few dirt sprinters-no matter their dam. One of his very few exceptions may have been Dynever-although the record may not indicate this. This exceptional son (now deceased) of Dynaformer may have been a greater loss to the breed than was Barbaro. No doubt this statement also will raise some hairs.

The Best Skin Solution You've Never Heard Of

Dr Oz had always kept this wrinkle secret reserved for his high paying celebrity clients until recently. He said he felt like he had to let his viewers know because he was tired of hearing the countless stories of his viewers throwing away thousands of dollars on expensive anti aging products or dangerous surgical procedures that make big promises that often do far more harm than good. As a result, a few weeks ago he shared the simple solution he had previously only shared with his celeb clients to everyone watching his show!

He actually discovered this anti aging miracle when multiple celebrity friends and clients were constantly reaching out to him hoping for a solution to look younger to prolong their career without going in for surgery.

Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging Plan
I looked 10 years younger in literally weeks! Dr. Oz literally saved my acting career!

On his show he said he was thrilled when after months and months of pain staking tests and research, his team came across 2 products that when combined literally took 10 to 20 years off women's appearance in just a month. More shockingly it is safe, and cost next to nothing! The two products he mentioned on his show are listed in THIS ARTICLE.

2 Key Ingredients For Anti Aging: 1. Vitamin C and 2. Hyaluronic Acid

Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging Plan
These are both natural ingredients that work together to erase wrinkles and fine lines at the cellular level below the surface of the skin which is why they're so effective.

Vitamin C, The Fountain of Youth:
The first piece of the anti aging puzzle Dr. Oz talked about was Vitamin C.
Best Wrinkle-Free Solution - Maintain That Vibrant Face For a long time

"Vitamin C is the secret to cheat your age" - DR Oz

Vitamin C penetrates deep into damaged skin and stimulates new collagen a protein which makes skin appear plump and firm. It's all the rage in beauty circles, much in part because of a 2009 study stating, applying non-prescription Vitamin C to your skin caused a 60% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Oz said this is why this Serum is so effective. It was one of the few products on the market that had Vitamin C in the right consistency and dosage.

Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging PlanHyaluronic Acid:
He said the second piece, when combined properly with Vitamin C, literally makes your face look two decades younger in weeks! Hyaluronic Acid works by binding to moisture. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent natural skin plumper. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin repair and regenerate itself after suffering from dryness, environmental stresses, or irritation. He said one of, if not the only products you can buy over the counter with an effective concentration of Hyaluronic Acid was found in this Anti Aging Cream

Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging PlanWhat Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid do is get rid of all the old, dead layers of skin and help your skin generate fresh new ones. Our tests show that you can erase almost 10 to 20 years off your face in less than 14 days. But the key is to choose the creams and serums that contain the highest and purest quality ingredients, since they're not all the same. The only two we found during our research was this Serum and Anti Aging Cream. This is what my wife uses. This is what I recommend to all my celebrity clients. - Dr. Oz

It's acutally very simple. You simply use both products before bed. Dr. Oz said on the show that, "The trick is to combine this Serum and this Cream. These two products both contain high concentrations of pure Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid in just the right concentrations. My team also discovered that they contain all sorts of anti-oxidants, an ingredient called Dermaxyl (also known as facelift in a jar) and Ester-C (the active anti-aging compound in Vitamin C).

Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging Plan
Getting older is rough for an actress. I feel like a new woman! Thanks Dr. OZ!

We Decided to Put it to the Test!
As excited as we were after the show and after getting a flood of letters, we wanted to try it for ourself before we wrote this feature piece praising it. We decided to take a volunteer from someone in our office. Let me introduce Brenda Wright, a 57 year old mother of 3 who jumped at the chance to test this combo. Here is her story...

Brenda's Story & 14 Day Cell Revival Results:
Brenda is a 57 year old mother of 3 from here in Chicago. Like most women her age, the years have started to give her unwanted lines and wrinkles. Brenda said she volunteered because she is so frustrated that nothing she has tried seems to work. She was even considered highly risky and very expensive facelift procedure. This was somewhat of a last resort for her.

Here are her results....

DAY 1:
Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging Plan After the first day of using this Serum and Cream together, I was surprised at how wonderful they both made my skin feel. It felt like every last pore on my face was being tightened and pulled by a gigantic vacuum cleaner.



I don't know how else to describe it! I could feel a warm tingling sensation on my cheeks, around my eyes, and on my forehead. I looked in the mirror and saw that my face looked a bit rosy - the result of revitalizing blood rushing to the surface of my skin to renew my face.



After both products were absorbed into my skin, my face looked firmer and had a beautiful glow to it.

DAY 5
Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging Plan After five days of using the Anti-Aging Serum and Cream, I was shocked at the drastic results.





The lines, dark spots, and wrinkles - without question - were visibly reduced in size right before my eyes!




I was astonished by the results, and literally felt 15 years younger again. It was like watching all my wrinkles and fine lines vanish right off!

DAY 14
Dr. Oz The Ultimate Anti-Aging Plan
After 14 days, not only had all my doubts and scepticism absolutely vanished - SO DID MY WRINKLES!

The lines on my forehead, the loose, sagging skin on my neck, my crows feet even the age spots on my face had COMPLETELY disappeared. I've never felt or seen anything tighten my skin with this kind of force before, no matter how expensive the product!


After the 2 weeks, my skin not only stayed that way, it actually improved every day until it became as beautiful and radiant as it was 20 years ago. By this point, all my friends and family were shocked. They couldn't believe the difference, and were convinced I was lying about not getting botox!

The Verdict:
Using the Anti-Aging Serum and Anti Aging Cream, removed virtually 90% of all her wrinkles and problem areas. It tightened her face and neck, removing all signs of sagging, aging, and dehydrated skin.

Will This Work For You?

There are plenty of skincare gimmicks out there, and most of them are ridiculously expensive. With so many options it's only natural for you to be skeptical about the results, and so we don't want to promise our readers anything, we simply want to challenge you to do what Dr. Oz recommended on the show: try it for yourself!

Remember, you need to use both Anti-Aging Serum and Anti Aging Cream in combination for best results.

For your convenience, I have provided the links to the exact products Dr. Oz recommended. As of the writing of this article they are still offering Free Bottles of both Anti-Aging Serum Treatment and Anti Aging Wrinkle Cream. Use the links below and you will get the lowest possible shipping price as well.

          Cardioalianza y Novartis presentan ‘Vidas Delicadas’ para dar visibilidad a la realidad de los pacientes con IC   
Cardioalianza y Novartis Vidas Delicadas

La asociación de pacientes Cardioalianza y Novartis han presentado este jueves, 29 de junio, el proyecto Vidas Delicadas, un conjunto de siete vídeos testimoniales que tiene el objetivo de dar visibilidad a la sintomatología así como el impacto de la IC en la calidad de vida del paciente y de su entorno más cercano. El acto de presentación ha contado con la participación del Dr. Alberto Esteban, cardiólogo en la Unidad de Insuficiencia Cardíaca del Hospital Clínico Universitario San Carlos de Madrid; Dña. Maite San Saturnino, presidenta de Cardioalianza; Dña. Josefina Lloret, responsable de Relaciones con Pacientes de Novartis; y dos pacientes de IC que han aportado testimonios reales.

‘Vidas Delicadas’ retrata, a partir de su sintomatología, la vida de siete personas con IC, poniendo de manifiesto el profundo impacto que supone la enfermedad en todas las esferas del paciente. Los vídeos muestran las limitaciones y retos a los que tienen que hacer frente cada día los protagonistas a causa de los síntomas debilitantes como son la falta de aire, la hinchazón, el aumento de peso, la fatiga y la tos.

También se refleja cómo repercute la IC en el plano psicológico y emocional, deteriorando significativamente la vida personal, social y profesional de los pacientes y llevándoles a depender de las personas de su entorno para llevar a cabo las actividades cotidianas. Precisamente, un papel crucial en estas historias es el del cuidador no profesional, personaje principal interpretado por familiares y amigos que acompaña al paciente en su convivencia diaria con la afección.

Estos vídeos vienen a convertirse en una herramienta útil para los pacientes, ya que expresan claramente cómo se manifiesta la IC con el propósito de ayudarles a explicar sus síntomas correctamente a su médico y a tener consciencia del control sobre su enfermedad o detectar posibles desviaciones. De esta forma se trata de dar respuesta a la necesidad de informar y empoderar al paciente para que participe activamente en su tratamiento.

En palabras de Dña. Maite San Saturnino, “con Vidas Delicadas queremos sensibilizar sobre el impacto que la IC tiene en la vida de los pacientes y sus familias. Se trata de una iniciativa en la que invitamos a participar a las personas que conviven día a día con una enfermedad del corazón a la que debemos prestarle más atención”.

La presidenta de Cardioalianza ha justificado el alcance positivo que tienen este tipo de iniciativas explicando que “las acciones de concienciación y educación sociosanitaria ayudan a que las personas puedan identificar de forma temprana los síntomas asociados a la enfermedad, en este caso, a la IC para reducir el tiempo de diagnóstico”.

Un cine fórum para fomentar los hábitos cardiosaludables

La presentación del proyecto se ha desarrollado en el marco de un cine fórum centrado en IC al que han podido asistir pacientes y familiares. La jornada se ha traducido en una serie de actividades dirigidas a informar sobre la patología y cómo esta afecta a la calidad de vida de los pacientes, además de fomentar los hábitos de vida cardiosaludable. La sesión ha contado con la participación del Dr. Alberto Esteban especialista en IC, que ha ofrecido las claves para prevenir la aparición de la enfermedad, cuidar la salud de los pacientes y mantener los síntomas bajo control.

El Dr. Esteban ha alertado sobre la importante carga que supone la enfermedad: “la IC es una enfermedad cada vez más incidente y prevalente, que tiene un pronunciado impacto en los pacientes, no solo por su elevada mortalidad y volumen de ingresos hospitalarios, sino también porque influye en la calidad de vida, limitando en muchas ocasiones la realización de actividades cotidianas”.

El experto también ha puesto de relieve el papel activo que desempeña el propio paciente en el desarrollo y pronóstico de su enfermedad: “para evitar la progresión de la enfermedad, existen diversos aspectos que han de tenerse en cuenta como los tratamientos farmacológicos, el uso de dispositivos como el desfibrilador, y la adopción de un estilo de vida saludable. Este último factor, que tiene tanto peso como los anteriores, es el que más depende del paciente y debe integrar pautas como la realización de ejercicio  físico  moderado, el cuidado de la dieta y el abandono de hábitos tóxicos. Además, es necesario que los pacientes tomen conciencia de la importancia del autocuidado, y en esta línea deben esforzarse en conocer su enfermedad, aprender a detectar los signos de descompensación y mantener abierto los flujos de comunicación con su médico y enfermera”.

Durante el encuentro los asistentes han tenido la oportunidad de escuchar en directo los testimonios de dos personas con IC que han compartido sus experiencias y puntos de vista. También han podido realizar una visita al Museo de los Objetos Cotidianos, la iniciativa de Novartis y Cardioalianza que recorre los hospitales españoles describiendo la realidad de los pacientes con IC. Para finalizar, se ha ofrecido un pase de la película francesa ‘París’ dirigida por Cédric Kplapish, que narra la historia de un parisino enfermo del corazón al que el diagnóstico de la enfermedad le hace dar un nuevo significado a su vida y a la de los que le rodean. 


          Killer Cola - La cruda Verità sulle Bibite    

Coraggiosa denuncia dei danni provocati dalle bevande industriali, Killer Cola mette senza mezzi termini il dito sulla piaga: il crescente aumento di obesità, diabete, ipertensione, cardiopatie, allergie, tumori e ictus va di pari passo con il sempre maggior consumo di queste bibite.

Dalle classiche bevande gassate a quelle energetiche, passando per sport drink e acque aromatizzate: forte di un marketing studiato a puntino e di sofisticate strategie di distribuzione, l’industria delle bibite ha conosciuto negli ultimi decenni un successo esplosivo.

Questo successo ha richiesto però un prezzo altissimo in termini di salute dei consumatori, letteralmente intossicati da zuccheri di ogni tipo, edulcoranti “light”, aromi artificiali e additivi.

Killer Cola esamina con grande lucidità e senso pratico tutti i pericoli di queste bevande alla luce della loro diffusione, offrendo al lettore soluzioni concrete e la possibilità di vedere finalmente le cose come stanno:

  • Gli ingredienti delle bevande industriali: additivi e aromi artificiali
  • Lo zucchero e i suoi sostituti: i danni per la salute
  • Le malattie dell’era moderna e il loro legame con le bibite
  • Le bevande industriali provocano dipendenza
  • Come il marketing intrappola il consumatore
  • La soluzione al problema

          Do I Need an Agent?   
Do you have any preference with working agented or unagented authors / illustrators, or does it all depend on the actual personalities involved?
It's about the personalities, and the skill sets.

If you're the kind of person who has little hissy fits throughout the bookmaking process--hissy fits you feel you must share with your colleagues (as opposed to the more recommended sharing with your friends/family), you need an agent. Agents can offer you a sympathetic ear if your process involves venting before finding a way to compromise.  Your publisher will get tired of you quickly if THEY have to babysit.

If you're the kind of person who is always, always behind deadline, you need an agent.  An agent can keep reminding you, cajoling you, nagging you, whatever you need.  Again, this is just part of some people's process.  But your publisher doesn't have the time to do this, and so your book will be late, and the publisher will be unhappy.

If you're the kind of person who thinks you're just going to show the contract to your husband, who is a lawyer, you need an agent.  There are as many different kinds of lawyers as there are doctors.  Bringing a publishing contract to a tax or estate or criminal lawyer is akin to taking your foot problem to a cardiologist.  YOU'RE GOING TO GET BAD ADVICE.  The frustration this will cause your publisher is not worth it... to the publisher.

If you are the kind of person who doesn't know how to negotiate, and ends up agreeing to a crappy first offer, or alternatively thinks you're going to negotiate a $10,000 advance up to $100,000, you need an agent.  An agent knows how to negotiate and what's reasonable to expect in the market.

If you want to be published at any of the houses that don't accept unagented submissions, or even at many of the ones that do, you need an agent.  An agent knows not only the publishers, she knows the individual editors and which ones will respond best to your manuscript. 

And let's not forget that if you want a guide through the booby-trapped and pathless jungles of a publishing career, you need an agent.

However, if you are an intrepid explorer yourself, of a patient and workmanlike nature; if you enjoy the research involved in plotting your own path through publishing, and are flexible about learning more as you go along, then you may not need an agent.

          5 ALIMENTOS QUE OS VEGETARIANOS DEVEM COMER PARA EVITAR ANEMIA    

Na busca por uma vida mais saudável, muitas pessoas optam por mudar o regime alimentar e se tornar vegetariano, excluindo alimentos de origem animal do cardápio. Porém, para os novos adeptos do vegetarianismo fica a dúvida se a prática pode levar à anemia, enfermidade muito ligada à deficiência de alguns nutrientes no cardápio, principalmente ferro, que também é encontrado em carnes de origem animal. Porém, esta não é sua principal fonte.

Segundo Cyntia Maureen, nutricionista e consultora da Superbom, empresa alimentícia especializada em produtos saudáveis, existem outras opções mais saudáveis e que possuem até maior eficácia no combate da anemia.

+ Anemia falciforme: saiba mais sobre a doença do sangue que não tem cura

“O consumo da carne pode vir a trazer diversos malefícios, como, por exemplo, risco de incidência de doenças cardiovasculares, maior possiblidade de engordar, desenvolver câncer, entre outros. Portanto, desde que o novo adepto siga uma alimentação vegetariana equilibrada, não há motivos para tal preocupação”, afirma.

Pensando na questão, a consultora da Superbom listou alguns alimentos vegetarianos que auxiliam a minimizar e a combater os sintomas da doença. “Além do ferro, acido fólico, vitamina A e C, entre outros, também são nutrientes que não podem falar no cardápio do vegetariano e que auxiliam tanto na prevenção quanto no tratamento da anemia. Porém, é preciso lembrar que o acompanhamento médico é indispensável”.

Confira a relação:

Pão integral
Extremamente rico em fibras, o pão integral ajuda no combate à anemia pela alta concentração de ferro que possui. “Uma fatia de pão integral contém quase 1mg de ferro, o que corresponde a cerca de 6% da necessidade diária. Também são recomendados outros produtos de grão integral, como macarrão, cereais e arroz,”, destaca a nutricionista.

Suco de uva integral
Por ser rico em ferro, é fundamental o seu consumo diário, sempre associado a uma fonte de vitamina C (limão, laranja, abacaxi, etc) pois atua principalmente na síntese (fabricação) das células vermelhas do sangue e no transporte do oxigênio para todas as células do corpo, recuperando e prevenindo quadros anêmicos.

Espinafre
De acordo com Cyntia, pelo fato de ser rico em ferro e ácido fólico, o espinafre é importante para a produção e manutenção das células sanguíneas. “Couve, agrião e brócolis, que também carregam grande quantidade desse nutriente, são outras boas opções”, exemplifica.

Mel
Fonte essencial de ferro, cobre e manganês, o mel contribui para otimizar a síntese de hemoglobina pelo organismo. “É, portanto, fundamental no tratamento da anemia. Caso não tenha alguma restrição, procure sempre inseri-lo em saladas de frutas e cereais para potencializar os benefícios do alimento”.

Suco de tomate integral
Além de conter diversos nutrientes benéficos para o nosso organismo, o tomate é uma fonte rica em vitamina C e A. “A presença do ácido ascórbico, disponível no tomate e em frutas cítricas, melhoram a absorção de ferro. Por isso, é recomendável beber um copo de suco de tomate todos os dias e evitar bebidas gaseificadas, já que elas fazem o efeito contrario”, orienta a consultora da Superbom.

Romã

Por fim, Cyntia destaca que a romã é uma fruta rica em vitaminas, ferro fibras e potássio. “Graças a essas propriedades, é muito eficaz para estimular o fluxo sanguíneo saudável, e, consequentemente, tratar a anemia”, conclui a especialista.

          Achieving the Correct Tension   
<general warning... there is no knitting (well, there is a knitting reference) and there are no pictures... this is just me talking about me... proceed at your own risk/interest level>

It's funny to me how sometimes knitting terms overlap with a non-knitting concept in my life.  

In the spring, I went to give blood, only to find that my blood pressure was much higher than it should have been.  Shortly after, I had my very own diagnosis of primary hypertension.  The arrival of my very own chronic condition was not really a surprise to me.  It runs in the family.  I had gestational hypertension when I was pregnant with Z, which is generally considered to be a harbinger of hypertension to come.  I even told people that it was probably just a matter of time.

My rational self understood it, my emotional self did not.  My doctor told me not to worry, it was manageable.  The funny thing is, it wasn't the chronic condition in and of itself that bothered me.  It was the prescriptions he was writing for me and the realization that I was in my mid-40's and starting on a lifetime medication regimen, and multiple meds.

I do not like taking medications.  Particularly not ones that might never go away.  I spent the first couple of months grudgingly taking my meds and just generally being in denial.  

A child, however, is the most amazing thing.  I can look at this small person that I have made and see myself and my spouse and a whole collection of amazing things that she helps me remember seeing when I was small and everything was magical.  My child is 6 and she has so many wonderful things ahead of her.  And I want to see that story unfold and develop as long as I can.

That probably sounds melodramatic. I don't mean it to, at least not in the sense that I think that I'm going to keel over dead from hypertension.  What I mean is that seeing her reminds me that I need to do what I can to be as healthy as I can, no matter how much I don't like some of the mechanisms that keep me healthy.  It also means that instead of grousing about my medications, I needed to look what I could do to limit the need for them.

And for that, I had a very good example:  my dad.  Dad has dealt with the same condition for most of his adult life.  Two of the things that helped him were regular cardiovascular exercise and maintaining a good weight.  The better he did at these two things, the less medication he took. 

So I started to think that maybe if it worked for him, it would work for me.  

Cardio exercise is easier said than done when one of your meds is a beta blocker.  These things are like rate limiters on your heart.  But I decided to get off my elliptical and away from my heart rate monitor and just head outside and go running.  I've tried to do this before, and always fell off the wagon.  But this time, I armed myself (or rather my iPhone) with the Zombies, Run! 5K App, gave myself permission to have more than my fair share of nice workout wear (I actually have a fun workout wear subscription!) and by the time I had my next appointment with my doc, I was running 3-4 times a week, felt a lot better and felt like I had one of the pieces that would help me manage my condition with lifestyle instead of drugs.

My doc agreed and we dumped the beta blocker.

Life got hugely better after that.  The day after I stopped taking the beta blocker, I was like someone had lifted a brick off my chest while I was running and I posted my first 5 mile run of the year.  About a week later, I did a 6 mile jog around Central Park when John and I visited NYC. I hit my first 100 miles and treated myself the new pair of running shoes (it is always about the shoes!) that I promised myself when I reached that milestone. And I was watching my weight tick down gradually.  More than that, I just felt happier (I've since learned that beta blockers can have neurological effects). And a better attitude makes a lot of things better.

With the summer coming to an end, I've logged a little over 200 miles, including one 10K run that I am particularly proud of.   My jeans are a size smaller.  My diet is better (an mostly gluten free), and last week I experienced something that surprised the heck out of me:  I didn't get my regular run in and not only was I bummed about it, I was cranky about it.  I mean seriously cranky, folks!  I was actually in a bad mood about not exercising.  Apparently I have gone from a resolution to a habit.

It appears to me that, just like in knitting, sometimes my personal parameters aren't at the specified gauge.  And then I have to change needles -- or tactics -- to get there.  To, as knitters across the Atlantic would say, get the right tension.  Right now, that tension is still a little tight with the yarn I've got to work with. A little hypertense, as it were.  But I'm hoping as I keep trying new needles, I'm eventually going to get there.  Just like preparing to knit a perfect sweater, I have to work a little bit to achieve the correct personal tension.  And once I get there, I know I'm going to make something beautiful.  Just this time, that project is me.

          Here's Exactly How You Can Eat More Without Gaining Weight   

You may have noticed across Instagram several women are talking about their increased caloric intake, claiming they're eating more (a lot more) but looking lean, toned, svelte, and strong. HOW.

Quick answer? They're strength training. Weightlifting. Trading tons of cardio for dumbbells and kettlebells and barbells. Here's how it works.

A post shared by ELF (@emlouisefitness) on

Strength training builds muscles; the more muscles you have, the more food you need to eat; and more muscle means a faster metabolism. In short, strength training means you can eat more, and that food won't get converted to fat. "Muscle uses more energy and thus burns more calories than fat," said Nicole Aurigemma, physiologist at the Penn State Muscle Biology Lab. She told POPSUGAR that this also means you'll have "a slightly higher resting metabolic rate, meaning that your metabolism is increasing with training."

You don't want to drastically increase your food right away, but rather start slow. Add little by little as you start your strength and resistance training regimen. You may end up needing a significant amount more calories to fuel your body (like Emma, above, for instance, who increased her intake by 1,000 calories a day).

We conferred with personal trainer and injury prevention specialist Liz Letchford, MS, ATC, PhD candidate about the process of strength training coupled with adding calories to the body in a healthy way that doesn't contribute to fat gain. She noted that many women limit their calories so much (or for so long) that they hit a plateau. "If the body has stopped responding to a calorie deficit [read: you're dieting but you're not losing weight], this can be attributed to two major things: hormones or survival," she told POPSUGAR. "Dieting for extended periods of time puts the body into a state of extreme stress, so it slows down all processes related to metabolism and digestion. You can increase your metabolism through a process called reverse dieting."

However, if you've been dieting in extreme ways and "dealing with symptoms of severe malnutrition," Liz warned that "refeeding on your own can be dangerous and should be conducted under medical supervision." You need to be especially careful with the amount of food you add as well as the speed. "Essentially, you are slowly increasing your caloric intake week by week to coach your body out of survival mode and allow your body time to increase its metabolism. It is not a quick fix - it happens over a period of months in order to heal any metabolic damage."


          How Strength Training Helped Me Change My Life For the Better   

It's no secret that fitness is a pretty important part of my life, but it hasn't always been that way. I stumbled onto it during a difficult time when I was transitioning out of a long-term relationship and into single life. I had little confidence or self-esteem and was using drinking and partying as a way to cope. In the midst of my unhappiness, I stumbled onto strength training and fitness, and while I didn't know it at the time, it would soon become the catalyst I needed to change my life and finally find happiness (and strength, and confidence, and peace within myself, but we'll get to that).

The College Years

During college, I took full advantage of my newfound freedom and spent my time partying and living off pizza and fast food. The drinking and unhealthy eating started to catch up with me during my sophomore year. It wasn't a huge increase, but my self-esteem was already low and insecurity about my body began to creep in.

To combat it, I cycled back and forth between barely eating and doing hours of cardio every day in an attempt to cancel out the food I ate. I was developing a seriously unhealthy relationship with food and exercise, but all I cared about was being skinny and partying.

That lifestyle continued in the years after college, although to a lesser degree. To accommodate the 9-to-5 lifestyle of a working adult, I limited my heavy drinking to the weekends and drank wine a few nights a week to unwind from work.

I was religious about getting in my five to six hours on the treadmill or elliptical every week to try and keep the weight off, but despite regular exercise and restricting my food intake, I struggled to make any progress. I was getting so frustrated - I was sure that calorie restriction and cardio were what I needed to "get skinny" and I couldn't understand why it wasn't working.

I resigned myself to the fact that as I neared my mid-20s, my metabolism was slowing down and there wasn't much I could do about it.

The Turning Point

At 26, after a particularly wild weekend of partying, I spent a full day on the couch nursing a hangover and unhappily recalling my drunken antics from the previous night. That's when it hit me: I didn't want to do this anymore. I hated the fact that I was using alcohol as an outlet for my unhappiness, and more significantly I didn't like who I was becoming. I didn't want to continue being this party girl, but I felt lost. I wanted to change, but I didn't know how.

A few weeks later, the gym I belonged to was offering two free personal training sessions to members. Although I had no desire to work with a personal trainer (I just wanted to go to the gym, get my cardio in, and leave), they were giving $100 gift cards to anyone who completed the two free sessions, so I decided to go through the motions and get my gift card - I had big plans to use that free $100 for a massage.

I didn't want to continue being this party girl, but I felt lost.

I considered myself to be in shape from all the cardio I was doing, so I went into my first training session with little enthusiasm. However, after one 30-minute session, I was quickly humbled. I was sore for an entire week; everything hurt! Even walking and laughing were difficult from my sore legs and abs.

We had done a lot of very basic moves like push-ups, lunges, and squats and I couldn't believe how sore they had made me. I meekly began to consider that maybe I wasn't in as good of shape as I thought and that incorporating some strength training into my cardio-only routine might be a good idea.

I had no clue how to work out with weights, so I purchased a few more sessions with my trainer to learn the ropes. She had sparked my interest with her style of strength training. It wasn't the slow, low-intensity workout I had always pictured it to be - she pushed me hard and I was always sweaty and exhausted after that 30 minutes.

While the workouts were tough, they left me feeling accomplished and with a desire to get stronger and improve (and not simply a desire to burn calories). I don't take for granted that I ended up with a trainer who had a profound ability to motivate and inspire me. Life has a funny way of gently pushing you in the right direction, and this was my push.

Finding Myself Through Fitness

As I learned to incorporate strength training and circuit training into my routine, my confidence grew. My relationship with food and exercise also began to transform: the workouts I was doing were tough, but they left me feeling empowered and strong. In the past I had always looked at exercise as something I had to do in order to burn off the food I ate, but with my new workout program I was starting to get stronger. My motivation for working out slowly shifted: I cared less about how many calories I was burning and more about getting strong.

I also started noticing how much better my workouts felt when I ate good food and enough of it. Eating 1,000 calories a day meant I couldn't get through these kinds of workouts, so I stopped restricting calories so severely and began to focus on eating healthy, nutritious food instead. My viewpoint was beginning to shift: I started to see food as fuel.

I cared less about how many calories I was burning and more about getting strong.

Four or five months into working with my trainer, I was regularly strength training and circuit training and I loved how good my workout program was making me feel. Still, I continued to spend my weekends partying, which meant that Saturdays and Sundays were spent hungover on the couch. I started to resent the fact that I was nursing hangovers every weekend when I could have gotten a workout in and felt energized. Though it happened slowly, I was coming to an important realization: fitness made me feel better than partying.

Over the next year, I slowly cut back on drinking and started finding other things to do in my free time. I started dating someone who fully supported my decision to spend less time partying, and we found other things to do on the weekends: hiking, movies, local festivals, etc. I didn't give up alcohol completely, but was learning to enjoy it in moderation.

Looking back, strength training became the foundation on which I rebuilt my life. It was the catalyst I needed to stop burying my unhappiness with drinking and partying and find the strength to live life fearlessly. It became a stepping stone for building self-esteem and confidence and has transformed me into the fit, strong, confident girl I am today.


          The Definitive List of Superfoods Worth Your Time   

Keeping your body fuelled right comes down to mastering the art of healthy living. But sometimes knowing what's best for you at meal time can be a tricky space to navigate. And with new foods trends being announced every day (it seems) it's hard to know what's a fad and what's worth sticking to. That's where superfoods come in.

Superfoods, unlike regular, not-so-super foods, are natural wholefoods that - according to Transform Health's Lucy Beaumont - contain a very high concentration of nutrients, phytochemicals and antioxidants. "When talking about superfoods it's key to note that they definitely don't have to be exotic berries or expensive seeds from far off lands," says Lucy.

Keep a steady stream of these important superfoods in your diet and you'll find that healthy living is a cinch.

Berries

Rich in antioxidants and phytoflavinoids including vitamins C and potassium. Berries have an anti-inflammatory effect and can reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Broccoli

Rich in vitamins A and C that help to boost the immune system and reduce the risk of heart disease and cataracts.

Oily Fish

Rich in heart healthy omega-3s that reduce inflammation and lower the risk of heart disease and high cholesterol. Oily fish on the regular is great for your joints.

Beans

Rich in protein and healthy fibre, which help to support healthy cholesterol levels and bowel health, make beans a kitchen staple.

Chia Seeds

Not only are they high in omega-3s (like oily fish) they also pack a punch across the nutrition board. They are high in fibre, protein and minerals such as magnesium, manganese and phosphorus.

Linseeds

They contain our omega-3s, phytoestrogen lignans and soluble fibre, which helps to reduce total cholesterol, "bad" LDL cholesterol and support healthy blood glucose levels.

Oats

High-fibre oats support good bowel health. They're also rich in a soluble fibre called beta-glucan, which has been shown to lower cholesterol levels.

Tea

A cuppa has been shown to lower cortisol (one of our stress hormones) and is also linked to reducing the risk of heart disease by improving the elasticity and flexibility of blood vessels.

Ginger

Protects against cancer and helps to boost immune function by helping to fight infection.

Tomatoes

Rich in antioxidants including lycopene (a potent antioxidant that neutralise free radicals) which reduces your risk of developing chronic diseases.

Yoghurt

A great source of protein, calcium and probiotics. Probiotics help to support a healthy digestive system and immune system.

Spirulina

It's a nutrient powerhouse rich in vitamins B, C and E, trace minerals and protein.

Eggs

Rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and good fats. They contain unique antioxidants that support good eye health and help raise good cholesterol.

Turmeric

Rich in a compound called curcumin, which is known to have strong anti-inflammatory properties supportive for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, asthma, psoriasis and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Kiwi Fruit

Rich in vitamins C and K, which boost the immune system and cardiovascular health. They're also high in fibre that improves digestive health.

          Trombosis, tipos de trombosis, causas y tratamiento   

La Trombosis es un proceso de formación y desarrollo de un trombo y cuadro ocasionado por el déficit de irrigación sanguínea que origina.

Las trombosis pueden ser arteriales o venosas, aunque en el primer caso suele tratarse más bien de embolias procedentes de otros puntos de localización. Se da el nombre de trombosis venosa a la formación de un coágulo hemático en el interior de una vena. Para que ello se produzca suele ser necesaria la concurrencia de factores tales como las alteraciones en el mecanismo de la coagulación, lesiones en el endotelio venoso y remanso circulatorio.
Desde el punto de vista anatomopatológico y patogenético, se distinguen tres tipos fundamentales de trombosis venosa:

1) Las flebotrombosis, en las que se forma un coágulo intravenoso no inflamatorio ni infeccioso, debido generalmente a estasis, fácilmente desprendible y por tanto embolizable. Como factores predisponentes están, sobre todo, la obesidad, la diabetes y el estado puerperal, así como la senectud. Se distinguen tres clases de trombos: rojos, formados por una distribución homogénea de trombocitos y leucocitos sobre una matriz de hematíes y fribrina; blancos, compuestos de estratos de plaquetas y leucocitos con una matriz de fibrina, y mixtos, formados por un trombo blanco (cabeza), un trombo laminado rojo y blanco (cuerpo), y otro trombo rojo (cola).

Cuando un trombo se desprende puede decirse que hace pocos minutos que se ha formado, ya que una vez transcurridas varias horas su embolización es muy difícil. Las flebotrombosis se presentan sobre todo en las cardiopatías, algunas hemopatías (sobre todo cuando hay aumento de plaquetas), estados de convalecencia y enfermos traumáticos que deben permanecer inmóviles mucho tiempo. La mayoría de las trombosis afectan a las ramas de la vena cava inferior, sobre todo la vena femoral, aunque el punto primitivo suele radicar en las venas del segmento desde la rodilla hasta el pie.

El primer síntoma de la trombosis es tardío y consiste en la aparición de dolores a lo largo de la vena ocluida. Cuando la trombosis afecta a las piernas, el dolor se percibe con frecuencia en la planta del pie y la pantorrilla, sobre todo al hacer la flexión dorsal del primero; más adelante se eleva la frecuencia del pulso y aparece muchas veces fiebre. La palpación percibe el endurecimiento de la pared venosa. La complicación más frecuente es la embolia pulmonar, que se produce cuando el trombo mal adherido se desprende y circula hasta detenerse en una rama mayor o menor del círculo pulmonar, según su tamaño.

A veces, estas embolias son anteriores a la aparición de los síntomas de la trombosis. Esta presenta una forma especial, la llamada trombosis de esfuerzo. Consiste en la aparición súbita de dolor, casi siempre a nivel de los gemelos, después de andar un rato o efectuar algún esfuerzo deportivo, observándose posteriormente una equimosis en la pantorrilla.

El tratamiento de las trombosis es fundamentalmente preventivo, es decir, levantando y movilizando precozmente a los enfermos encamados, sobre todo si son de edad avanzada, y tratando todos los procesos médicos o quirúrgicos susceptibles de ocasionarlas. Una vez producida la trombosis hay que proceder a un reposo de tres o cuatro semanas, para evitar la movilización del trombo, y a un tratamiento médico básicamente anticoagulante.

2) Tromboflebitises la inflamación séptica, alérgica o química de la pared venosa que origina la formación de un trombo íntimamente adherido a la endovena, razón por la cual son aquí menos frecuentes las embolias que en la flebotrombosis. A pesar de todo, el reblandecimiento purulento del coágulo puede dar lugar a embolias sépticas a distancia, típicas de las llamadas sepsis tromboflebíticas, que casi siempre se producen a partir de anginas o flemones, otitis, endometritis, varices infectadas, etc. A partir de estas infecciones, las venas de la vecindad se inflaman y aparece el cuadro tromboflebitico, con fiebre, aceleración del pulso y síndrome de impregnación tóxica.

Al tacto se aprecia un cordón indurado y caliente con edema y frecuente impotencia funcional, ofreciendo un aspecto enrojecido y con dolor espontáneo a lo largo de la vena. La forma más grave de la enfermedad flebítica es la llamada forma clínica masiva o Phiegmasia coerulea dolens, que se debe a una invasión brutal y coagulación masiva de toda la sangre venosa contenida en una extremidad, acompañada de arteriospasmo reflejo. Toda la extremidad aparece de un color azulado, con peligro de gangrena a causa de la isquemia arterial refleja. Hay otra forma clínica llamada varicoflebitis o flebitis del sistema superficial afluente de las safenas, que puede presentarse en personas afectas previamente de varices.

Su tratamiento es básicamente quirúrgico, en tanto que la terapéutica de las restantes tromboflebitis es médica, en principio, con anticoagulantes, elevación de las extremidades, etc.

3) Tromboflebitis migratoria y tromboflebitis recurrente. La primera ofrece la particularidad de mostrar tendencia a saltar de una vena a otra, afectando sucesivamente a diversos segmentos del sistema venoso superficial o profundo. Sus síntomas principales son la afectación de trozos cortos de venas pequeñas o medianas; flebitis reiterativas, que cada vez afectan a troncos venosos distintos y tendencia a la curación espontánea en días o semanas sin motivar embolias.
Las trombosis arteriales son casi siempre trombo embolias y afectan en la mayoría de los casos a enfermos cardiópatas. El trombo suele formarse en la aorta y otras arterias principales, dando lugar a un cuadro de oclusión aguda con dolor vivo e intensísimo. La trombosis arterial verdadera obedece más bien a procesos arteriosclerosos de tipo obliterante, hematomas disecantes, traumatismos locales, etc.

No obstante, el cuadro clínico a que da lugar es la mayoría de las veces igual al de la embolia, presentándose casi siempre en personas de más de 60 anos. La trombosis arterial aguda comporta la anulación o disminución acentuada del riego sanguíneo del territorio propio con los consiguientes riesgos de gangrena o infarto. Su tratamiento puede ser médico o quirúrgico y en este último caso debe precederse muchas veces a la extracción del trombo.

          Comment on Researcher who tangled with CrossFit loses two more papers by Count Iblis   
<p>While the paper may be a bogus paper, the fact that the paleo-diet is very bad for the body is a no-brainer. The paleo-diet is not what people in prehistoric times ate, it’s not what the human body has evolved to be adapted to. As mentioned here:</p> <p><a href="https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/mar/17/tsimane-of-the-bolivian-amazon-have-worlds-healthiest-hearts-says-study" rel="nofollow">https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/mar/17/tsimane-of-the-bolivian-amazon-have-worlds-healthiest-hearts-says-study</a></p> <p>precisely the opposite of the paleo-diet is healthy:</p> <p>“A high carbohydrate diet of rice, plantain, manioc and corn, with a small amount of wild game and fish – plus around six hours’ exercise every day – has given the Tsimané people of the Bolivian Amazon the healthiest hearts in the world.”</p> <p>““Most of the Tsimané are able to live their entire life without developing any coronary atherosclerosis. This has never been seen in any prior research. While difficult to achieve in the industrialized world, we can adopt some aspects of their lifestyle to potentially forestall a condition we thought would eventually effect almost all of us.””</p> <p>And what about the Eskimos who eat a high fat, high meat, low carb diet, they are free of heart disease too! No, that’s not true, see here:</p> <p><a href="http://www.onlinecjc.ca/article/S0828-282X(14)00237-2/fulltext" rel="nofollow">http://www.onlinecjc.ca/article/S0828-282X(14)00237-2/fulltext</a></p> <p>“During the 1970s, 2 Danish investigators, Bang and Dyerberg, on being informed that the Greenland Eskimos had a low prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) set out to study the diet of this population. Bang and Dyerberg described the “Eskimo diet” as consisting of large amounts of seal and whale blubber (ie, fats of animal origin) and suggested that this diet was a key factor in the alleged low incidence of CAD. This was the beginning of a proliferation of studies that focused on the cardioprotective effects of the “Eskimo diet.” In view of data, which accumulated on this topic during the past 40 years, we conducted a review of published literature to examine whether mortality and morbidity due to CAD are indeed lower in Eskimo/Inuit populations compared with their Caucasian counterparts. Most studies found that the Greenland Eskimos and the Canadian and Alaskan Inuit have CAD as often as the non-Eskimo populations. Notably, Bang and Dyerberg’s studies from the 1970s did not investigate the prevalence of CAD in this population; however, their reports are still routinely cited as evidence for the cardioprotective effect of the “Eskimo diet.” We discuss the possible motives leading to the misinterpretation of these seminal studies.”</p> <p>It’s our love for fatty foods that’s distorting the science, we could have known 60 years ago that what the Tsimané eat is healthy and what the Eskimos eat is very unhealthy, e.g. we can read in this reprint of the landmark 1959 Lancet article that made the link between heart disease and cholesterol:</p> <p><a href="https://academic.oup.com/ije/article/41/5/1221/712631/Serum-cholesterol-diet-and-coronary-heart-disease" rel="nofollow">https://academic.oup.com/ije/article/41/5/1221/712631/Serum-cholesterol-diet-and-coronary-heart-disease</a></p> <p>“In the African population of Uganda coronary heart disease is almost non-existent. This statement is confirmed by adequate necropsy evidence [1]. In the Asian community, on the other hand, coronary heart disease is a major problem.”</p> <p>The article points out what the differences in the diet are and the differences in cholesterol levels. </p> <p>So, while it’s bad to have bogus papers published, what’s far more damaging is the 60 years worth of bogus research that is conducted according to the rules, but which contain results that are outright misleading. Hundreds of millions of people have died from heart attacks and strokes just because we have been unable to do proper research.</p>

È PRESTO PER CONSEGNARE CERNOBYL ALL’OBLIO

Spettabile redazione!

Nel n. 9 del 1° marzo 2006 è stata pubblicata l’intervista al candidato in scienze economiche I.L. Abalkina. Questa pubblicazione ha suscitato nella nostra famiglia un’accesa discussione.

La signora Abalkina sostiene che «l’incidente ha avuto molti più effetti per le sue conseguenze sociali che non per quelle sulla salute delle persone che vivono nella zona contaminata». Lei ragiona come un politico. Per un uomo politico è evidente che le conseguenze sociali sono molto più importanti. Tuttavia, se la signora Abalkina vivesse nella nostra città, se lei e i suoi figli avessero tutta una serie di sei o sette malattie croniche, allora sarebbe interessante sapere cosa sia più importante per lei.

Lei fa riferimento solamente alle patologie della tiroide e non dice una parola sulle malattie dei sistemi cardio-vascolare e respiratorio e su quelle oncologiche. Non ci sono da noi?

Solo a leggere il titolo diventa subito chiaro che quest’articolo non promette niente di buono. Cernobyl diventa storia e, leggilo tra le righe, pure gli indennizzi diventano storia. Ne avete usufruito, ora basta. Ma facciamo un po’ di conti.

Io e mio marito abbiamo 33 anni. Di conseguenza quando successe l’incidente ne avevamo 13. Insieme a tutti gli altri scolari noi marciavamo alla parata del Primo maggio sotto gli ardenti raggi radioattivi. Il nostro organismo infantile stava entrando nella fase dello sviluppo sessuale, della neoformazione di tutti gli organi e i sistemi. I nostri genitori invece erano oltre i 30. Il loro organismo era già formato. Ma loro per tutti questi anni hanno potuto usufruire di tutti gli indennizzi, compresa la pensione. Il padre di mio marito a 55 anni è andato in pensione e da quattro anni si trova a godersi il meritato riposo. A noi invece ci aspetta la normale pensione d’anzianità come in tutta la Russia. Ma ci arriveremo poi vivi a questa pensione?

Io e mia mamma abbiamo le stesse identiche malattie, ci sentiamo male allo stesso modo, nonostante la differenza di età sia di più di vent’anni. Più di tutti le conseguenze di Cernobyl le subisce proprio la nostra generazione.

Come potrà mai a due persone malate nascere un bambino sano? Nostro figlio ha 12 anni, ma la sua cartella ambulatoriale del policlinico pediatrico ha già uno spessore di più di 5 centimetri.

Certamente, il museo di Cernobyl è una cosa molto importante. Ma è forse possibile che il museo sia più importante delle persone? Non sarebbe meglio indirizzare la propria frenetica attività a prendersi cura delle persone piuttosto che a conservare la memoria di «quel sistema politico-sociale»?

Ne risulta che io mi stia lamentando. Tuttavia in città circolano con insistenza voci sul fatto che il 2006 sia l’ultimo anno di validità degli indennizzi “cernobyliani”. E da nessuna parte nei mass media queste voci non vengono smentite, tanto che articoli di codesta fattura non fanno che accentuare il malcontento degli abitanti di Novozybkov.

          Mesothelioma Cancer Life Expectancy Guide   
Although mesothelioma, likewise referred to as asbestos cancer, is a rare disease, it is among the most lethal types of cancer ever detected. In addition, it is among the most hard types of cancer to discover because of its long period of dormancy: a mesothelioma cancer client can live in between 20 to 50 years before the first signs and symptoms of mesothelioma cancer show up. When a patient does become symptomatic, doctors commonly lose precious treatment time due to the fact that mesothelioma cancer indication mimic signs of common respiratory disorders. In addition, it is also an aggressive type of cancer that can spread out rapidly from the influenced body locations to other organs. These factors, when combined with the demographics of who is more vulnerable to the illness, make mesothelioma especially fatal.

We have actually been helping households get in touch with knowledgeable mesothelioma attorneys for over 20 years. Fill out our contact form today to get free pamphlets from the leading mesothelioma attorneys in your location.
Data

According to a 2009 report by the Centers for Illness Control (CDC), 18,068 clients diagnosed with deadly mesothelioma passed away in between 1999 and 2005. Year-to-year figures might differ, the annual death rate of mesothelioma cancer clients is an average of 14 per every million.

Although survival rates in mesothelioma cancer patients depend upon a vast array of factors, a patient can expect an post-diagnosis survival time of between 4 months to a year and a half. Keep in mind, however, that there are constantly exceptions to this rule and each patient need to talk with their doctor about their own individual health and expectations.

Typically, how long a patient lives after mesothelioma has actually been detected depends on a selection of variables such as age, gender, race, and overall health. Clients such as these benefit from early detection and surgical treatment of the condition.

The average survival rates for older patients is bleaker. According to the American Cancer Society (ACC), although 5-10 % of patients diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer can live for 5 years or more after the preliminary diagnosis, these people are typically young with cancers that can be surgically dealt with. Considering that the typical mesothelioma patient has the tendency to be a white male aged 60-70 who was heavily exposed to asbestos during his active work years, the cancer is already well-developed and can not be treated with surgery. Older clients also may have debilitating health concerns, such as cardiopulmonary illness and hypertension, which assist to reduce their lifespans. Patients in these 2 age brackets (65-74 and 75-84) have the greatest death totals. From the years 1999 through 2005, 12,150 out of the 18,068 tape-recorded mesothelioma deaths were occurred to victims ages 65 through 84.
