CDC: Keep Active This Holiday Season

on December 8, 2017 - 6:48am

CDC News:

The holidays are here again! Not only does this festive season bring egg nog, cookies, candy canes and stuffing with extra gravy, in many areas it also means cooler temperatures.

Although being physically active can help you avoid some holiday weight gain, what should you do if it is too cold or icy outside? Why not beat holiday shoppers to your nearest mall for a morning walk?

Although mall walking can be done by almost anyone, it tends to be most popular among people middle-aged and older.

One of the most prevalent obstacles standing in the way of universal communication among mankind is the language barrier. This language barrier, defined by the Oxford Dictionary as being “a barrier to communication between people who are unable to speak a common language”, prevents worldwide communication between people of all countries, cultures, and, most of all, languages.


But what steps have been taken to surpass this barrier?

My previous column was largely based on Amy Cuddy’s research and TED talk in which she posits that a two-minute Wonder Woman’s power posture, hands on hips, would cause a spike in one’s adrenaline to accompany the assertion of confidence, which in turn leads to greater willingness to take risks in subsequent behavior.

Many followers of her TED presentation have commented that the power posture really works and has helped them build their confidence.

Rich: Leaked Document Indicates LANL May Lose Plutonium Pit Production To South Carolina

Republican Candidate for U.S. Senate
 
According to a leaked report by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) may lose a project to produce plutonium pits to South Carolina.
 
Not only would this represent a gigantic failure – for almost two decades, LANL has been America’s only nuclear weapons site capable of producing plutonium pits – it would reduce LANL’s mission to produce and secure America’s nuclear weapons capability.
 
Senators Heinrich and Udall crafted an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that

I enjoy writing, but I love reading even more. I was in Nashville on Small Business Saturday and made a point to stop by the independent bookstore co-owned by one of my favorite authors, Ann Patchett.

I opened the door to the busy shop, and Ann was standing right there, helping a patron find a book. I knew she co-owned the shop, but I never thought for minute she would be there working.

“Oh my god,” I whisper to my husband, “there is Ann Patchett!”

“Is that someone from Los Alamos?” He asked.

“Not hardly,” I say, as I take off to follow her around the
