If you’ve been holding out on springing for that Fitbit or Nike FuelBand telling yourself fitness trackers will soon go out of style  you may need to find another excuse, or give in. According to the American College of Sports Medicine’s 10th annual survey of 2,800 health and fitness professionals, wearable technologies such as fitness trackers, smart watches and GPS tracking devices are expected to be the No. 1 fitness trend in 2016.

Of the 40 trends ACSM asked fitness professionals to rank, body weight training, high-intensity interval training, strength training and educated and experienced fitness professionals took the top five slots after wearable technology. Dropping on this year’s list were worker incentive programs, boot camps and exercise programs aimed at children and weight loss  “a huge disappointment to those who believe that the fitness industry should take the lead in the battle against childhood obesity,” the accompanying journal article reports.

Obesity and Exercise

Jan 19, 2012

Written by Stacy Schmidt, M.S.

Obesity is a significant health problem in the United States, affecting close to one-third of all adults. Although genetics can play a role in the likelihood that a person will become obese, the condition occurs when the amount of calories consumed exceeds the amount of calories expended over a long period of time. Excess calories are stored as fat in the body, and with long-term caloric excess, an individual eventually becomes obese. Exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet are ways in which to combat obesity.

..

Benefits of Regular Exercise

..

Regular exercise (and proper nutrition) can help reduce body fat as well as protect against chronic diseases associated with obesity. If you are looking for a reason to start an exercise program, listed below are five of the many benefits of regular physical activity.

..

Exercise lowers risk for chronic diseases Concerned about heart disease? Regular exercise is a proven way to decrease risk for these and other chronic diseases. It will help to prevent or manage high blood pressure. It also raises high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, known as the good cholesterol, and lowers low density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol. This combination will decrease the amount of harmful plaques that can buildup on your artery walls and keep blood flowing smoothly. Regular exercise can also help prevent type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and certain cancers.

..

Exercise improves your mood

..

Feeling a little edgy? A quick workout will help calm you down! Exercise stimulates chemicals in your brain that make you feel happy and relaxed. It also makes you feel better about yourself and helps reduce feelings of depression and anxiety.

..

Exercise helps manage weight

..

Its a no-brainer. Exercise burns calories. The more you exercise, the easier it is to keep your weight under control. But remember that exercise is not a free pass to eat everything in sight! To burn 100 calories, most people need to walk or run about one mile. And one little chocolate M&M candy contains the amount of calories it would take to run or walk the length of a football field! So be sure not to overestimate the amount of calories youre burning.

The Design Trust for Public Space and Farming Concrete have released the Farming Concrete Data Collection Toolkit: the first public platform for gathering, tracking and understanding urban agriculture production and the benefits of community gardens, urban farms and school gardens. The result of a six-year initiative, Five Borough Farm, the Toolkit features a user-friendly manual with simple methods of generating and collecting data at each garden and farm, with accompanying instructional videos; Barn, an online portal for farmers and gardeners to input and track their production; and Mill, a public database providing access to numbers, reports for practitioners, researchers, policymakers, funders and anyone with interest in urban agriculture.

..

The project, lead by a core group of farmers and gardeners from New York City, includes twenty methods across five categories to measure gains in any farm or garden:

..

Food Production, measured by (i) crop and (ii) harvest counts;

Health Benefits, measured by (iii) changes in attitude, (iv) good moods, (v) healthy eating, and (vi) beauty of the garden;

Social Benefits, measured by participation by (vii) geography, (viii) task and (ix) project, (x) skills & knowledge in the garden and (xi) sharing with other gardens, and (xii) reach of programs;

Environmental Benefits, measured by landfill waste diversion by (xiii) weight or (xiv) volume, compost production by (xv) weight or (xvi) volume, and rainwater harvesting by (xvii) surface area or (xviii) volume;

Economic Benefits, measured by (xix) market sales and (xx) food donations.

..

There are now over 285 urban farms and community gardens in 43 cities nationwide and across the globe that contribute data to the Farming Concrete Data Collection Toolkit. So far 75,000 pounds of food have been harvested and 4,000 pounds of compost have been recorded.

Children Can Grow Along with the Houseplants They Tend

Children seem to have an innate need to nurture living things. In summer, it’s easy to satisfy that need by dedicating a sunny corner of the yard to growing a tomato or carrot crop.

..

But growing plants indoors  whether due to inhospitable weather or lack of space  is another, often overlooked option.

..

“Plants bring a house to life,” says Sharon Lovejoy, an author-illustrator who enjoys connecting children with nature. “Having a green, growing thing to tend is a wonderful relationship for a child.” Lovejoy is the author of “Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots: Gardening Together With Children” (Workman) and “Camp Granny” (Workman).

..

Houseplants offer some advantages over garden beds. Living in close proximity to plants allows children to play an even greater role in their care, as well as to observe things that might go unnoticed in an outdoor setting, where interactions are more sporadic. Plants might be kept in a child’s room, too, as long as there’s sufficient light.

..

Caring for a houseplant may even teach life lessons, says Randy Seagraves, curriculum director for the International Junior Master Gardener Program and extension program specialist with Texas A&M AgrilLife Extension Service. Children learn how to consider the needs of another living thing and the consequences if you don’t. Another possible plus for parents: Houseplants come without the full-scale responsibility of a pet.

..

“Growing something teaches kids the concept of delayed gratification,” Seagraves adds. “When you plant a seed or take care of a plant, you have to take care of it over a period of time.”

..

snip

..

Kids can benefit at almost any age, taking on more responsibility as they mature. Preschool-age children can mist leaves with a sprayer or clean dusty plants with a sponge.

Class Chickens Give Students Hands-on Horticulture Lessons

CORVALLIS  Early in College Hill High School teacher Cherie Taylors horticulture class, she went to her car to retrieve the 11 half-grown chickens she had brought for students to care for during the class, only to find that the chickens had broken free from the cardboard box in which she transported them.

..

Further, the escaped chickens had made a prodigious mess on the outside of their box and in the car, so instead of having one student carry the box as she planned, Taylor had her students each individually carry the chickens to the schools fenced garden area.

..

So lesson one for Tuesday: Chickens  bad for cars, but good for gardens.

..

Taylors horticulture class has been caring for the chickens since the start of the school year, when they were just 3 days old. Taylor said introducing the chickens is part of the courses rotating topics, which allow students to take the schools only science class over multiple years and not have to repeat content. In past years theyve studied mycorrhizal fungi and bees.

..

Taylor said lessons with the chickens for the horticulture class, which has become so popular that this year she had to add a second section, have included how to care for the chickens and the benefits chickens have on a garden, such as fertilization and pest control. Her construction math class, new this year at the school, is also building prototype coops that are designed to fit over the gardens raised beds, so the chickens can be rotated between the beds, although right now Taylor keeps them at her house when they are not attending class. The construction math class is trying to get to a point where it can sell coops as a fundraiser.

..

Taylor said hands-on activities, like raising chickens, are more engaging to students.

..

I could lecture from a textbook and kids would be looking at the clock, she said.

..

But in horticulture, students like Isaac Smartt said they enjoy the class so much that they come in during their free time to work on the garden.

..

Smartt, a senior at the alternative school, said he saw what other students were doing in the class last year so he wanted to join it.

..

Ive learned way more with hands-on (lessons) than I have with books, he said.

The Routes Not Taken : A Trip Through New York City’s Unbuilt Subway System

..

..

Delves deep into the underbelly of the NYC subway system to reveal the tunnels and stations that might have been. Robert A. Van Wyck, mayor of the greater city of New York, broke ground for the first subway line by City Hall on March 24, 1900. It took four years, six months, and twenty-three days to build the line from City Hall to West 145th Street in Harlem. Things rarely went that quickly ever again. TheRoutes Not Taken explores the often dramatic stories behind the unbuilt or unfinished subway lines, shedding light on a significant part of New York City’s history that has been almost completely ignored until now. Home to one of the world’s largest subway systems, New York City made constant efforts to expand its underground labyrinth, efforts that were often met with unexpected obstacles: financial shortfalls, clashing agendas of mayors and borough presidents, battles with local community groups, and much more. After discovering a copy of the 1929 subway expansion map, author Joseph Raskin began his own investigation into the city’s underbelly.

..

Using research from libraries, historical societies, and transit agencies throughout the New York metropolitan area, Raskin provides a fascinating history of the Big Apple’s unfinished business that until now has been only tantalizing stories retold by public-transit experts. The Routes Not Taken sheds light on the tunnels and stations that were completed for lines that were never fulfilled: the efforts to expand the Hudson tubes into a fullfledged subway; the Flushing line, and why it never made it past Flushing; a platform underneath Brooklyn’s Nevins Street station that has remained unused for more than a century; and the 2nd Avenue line long the symbol of dashed dreams deferred countless times since the original plans were presented in 1929. Raskin also reveals the figures and personalities involved, including why Fiorello LaGuardia could not grasp the importance of subway lines and why Robert Moses found them to be old and boring.

..

By focusing on the unbuilt lines, Raskin illustrates how the existing subway system is actually a Herculean feat of countless political compromises. Filled with illustrations of the extravagant expansion plans, The Routes Not Taken provides an enduring contribution to the transportation history of New York City.

The Koch Brothers Complain About Buying Low Quality Republicans
Who Lack Substance

Prior to 2009, maybe 2010, very few Americans had ever heard of the billionaire oil magnates the Koch brothers; likely by very careful design. Today, their name is synonymous with wealthy fascists attempting to rule America. It is that repute that Charles Koch has spent the past year attempting to transform into something more palatable and he continued the please love me campaign this week by opining on the state of the current presidential primary; rather, the dysfunction of the Republican presidential primary. The Democratic primary, and its candidates for president, are polar opposites of Charles and David Kochs Republican operatives if for no other reason than they are civil and substantive.

..

In a Wall Street Journal profile of and interview with Charles Koch, the oil magnate and libertarian fascist weighed in on the tenor of the Republican presidential primary and, more revealing, about the nature of political discourse in general. What is revealing is Koch lamenting that there is no sense of civility, substance, or issues driving the Republican candidates or the GOPs primary process. Koch bemoaned that, Its mainly about personalities and your mother sucked rotten eggs.’

..

It is not that Koch is wrong about the Republican primary race, but he does know that every single one of the personalities, every lack of civil discourse, and every Republican void of substance are Koch creations going back farther than the rise of one of the brothers crowning achievement; creating the Tea Party. Today Koch is frustrated because he, his brother, and about 450 wealthy donors plan to use Kochs network of umbrella organizations to spend $750 million on the 2016 election to buy the right dictate all political outcomes via dark money. Koch expects results for his investment, but it likely looks out of reach to him with the current batch of personalities lacking any substance and civility.

..

The Koch brothers have no right whatsoever to complain about the tone of Republican politics because it is exactly what they paid for and wanted. Todays Republicans have driven Washington politics to Cro-Magnon barbarianism because the process is polluted and flooded with Koch money and propaganda that elevated rabid right-wingers who have coarsened the discourse and made compromise impossible. It is important to note that one of the primary goals of the libertarian fascist Kochs is putting an end to government and they have spent no small amount of time and money to see that end reach fruition.

..

The Kochs may have made their official public entrance into politics after the 2008 general election, but they began their anti-government crusade over thirty years ago; about the same time Reagans government is the enemy campaign was off and running. Whether the Kochs conspired with conservative demigod Reagans anti-government crusade or not is not important, what is important is that they have used every means at their substantial disposal to advance the agenda including spending millions on Republicans without an ounce of substance or civility because it has worked miraculously well; likely because the Republican base is ignorant and uncivil.

..

All of the lack of substance and civility that Koch is complaining about began in earnest with the rise of the Tea Party packed with real Americans lacking substance and civility. That the tea party became a centralized movement is only because of a very concerted effort by Koch-funded groups such as Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works that brought much-needed expertise to mobilize angry, racist, religious, and anti-government types Koch is pretending to be disgusted with. As an aside and to demonstrate how long the anti-government Kochs have been influencing Republican politics, both Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks were at one time a single libertarian organization, Citizens for a Sound Economy, which the Koch brothers founded during the Reagan administration in 1984.

As More Children Drown,
Volunteers on Greek Island Say Rescues Are Left Largely to Them

Volunteers on the Greek island of Lesbos, shocked by the drowning deaths

Volunteers on the Greek island of Lesbos, shocked by the drowning deaths of at least 15 migrants, including 10 children, since Wednesday, lashed out at European governments and international aid organizations for failing to rescue the victims and largely ceding to civilians the task of caring for survivors of the perilous crossing from Turkey.

..

Harrowing images broadcast on Greek television and shared on social networks showed the desperate effort to save those plucked from the Aegean Sea in the port of Molyvos, where residents, fishermen, journalists and international volunteers scrambled to pump water from the lungs of young children and warm those with hypothermia.

..

We have lines of children half dead waiting to be hung upside down so we can pound the water out of their tiny lungs  boat after boat, Trace Myers, a volunteer from England, wrote on her Facebook page. We have ambulances, wailing, soaked, terrified people.

..

Today is a day of death, Ms. Myers wrote in an update. Members of this team have worked relentlessly to give CPR, support grieving people and have watched life pass from childrens eyes. A woman lost her baby and her husband, another woman saw her 3/4-year-old child die and her other child rushed to hospital.

..

These people need help, added Ms. Myers, who works with the British aid group Refugees Start. Greece needs help and we need volunteers now. Individuals managing this without any support from our governments is an outrage, our governments permitting this suffering is beyond comprehension.

..

More than 300,000 migrants, many fleeing wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, have arrived in Lesbos this year. Residents and even tourists have stepped in to offer help in the absence of an organized response from the government or international aid agencies.

..

Cant the United Nations do something? a fisherman, Panayotis Koutsos, asked Malcolm Brabant, reporting from Lesbos for PBS NewsHour.

NIH Researchers Link Single Gene Variation to Obesity

Variation in the BDNF gene may affect brains regulation of appetite,
study suggests.

A single variation in the gene for brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF) may influence obesity in children and adults, according to a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health. The study suggests that a less common version of the BDNF gene may predispose people to obesity by producing lower levels of BDNF protein, a regulator of appetite, in the brain. The authors propose that boosting BDNF protein levels may offer a therapeutic strategy for people with the genetic variation, which tends to occur more frequently in African Americans and Hispanics, than in non-Hispanic Caucasians. The study is published in the journal Cell Reports.

..

Obesity in children and adults is a serious issue in the United States, contributing to health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. Importantly, genetic factors can predispose a person to obesity, as well as influence the effectiveness of weight-loss strategies. The body relies on cells to process and store energy, and changes in genes that regulate these functions can cause an imbalance that leads to excessive energy storage and weight gain.

..

The BDNF gene has previously been linked to obesity, and scientists have been working for several years to understand how changes in this particular gene may predispose people to obesity, said Jack A. Yanovski, M.D., Ph.D., one of the study authors and an investigator at NIHs Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). This study explains how a single genetic change in BDNF influences obesity and may affect BDNF protein levels. Finding people with specific causes of obesity may allow us to evaluate effective, more-personalized treatments.

..

The BDNF protein plays several roles in the brain and nervous system and, at high levels, the protein can stimulate the feeling of fullness. The study team, led by Joan C. Han, M.D., a former NICHD investigator now at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, first analyzed the BDNF gene for naturally occurring genetic changes that alter levels of BDNF production. After analyzing brain tissue samples, the researchers identified an area of the gene where a single change reduced BDNF levels in the hypothalamus, a key area that controls eating and body weight.

..

The genetic change the researchers identified was not a rare mutation, but rather a variation that occurs in the general population. Every person has two copies, or alleles, of each gene, inheriting one copy from each parent. Alleles can vary at any location across the gene. In their study, the researchers referred to the common allele as T, and the less common allele, which produces less BDNF protein, as C.

..

Using this information, the researchers studied the BDNF gene in four groups of people, more than 31,000 males and females, enrolled in clinical research studies, including PAGE (link is external), HANDLS and Viva La Familia. They compared a persons BDNF gene combination  CC, CT or TT  to factors that define obesity, such as body mass index (BMI) and percentage of body fat. In African American adults, the team found that the C allele was associated with higher BMI and body fat percentage in those with CT or CC types. In a group of healthy children of many races, the researchers found that CC types had higher BMI scores and percentage of body fat when compared to CT or TT types, who were similar to each other. Finally, in a group of Hispanic children, the researchers found that the C allele (CT, CC types) was associated with a higher BMI score. Overall, the study suggests that the C allele of the BDNF gene may be linked to obesity in people.

..

To understand why the C allele has an effect on obesity, the study team carefully examined the genetic area that differs between C and T alleles. They discovered that the area of interest interacts with a protein called hnRNP D0B. In laboratory experiments, the team found that hnRNP D0B had trouble interacting with the C allele, resulting in less BDNF production. Lower BDNF levels may contribute to obesity in people with the C allele. If these findings are supported by additional studies, boosting BDNF levels may prove beneficial, said Dr. Han.

The study was funded by NICHD and other NIH institutes, including the National Institute of Mental Health, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institute on Aging, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, and the National Human Genome Research Institute.

Citing Federal Immunity, Judge Tosses Manslaughter Charge
for Texas Detective Who Shot Unarmed Black Man in 2013

On Thursday night, just four days before the former Austin police officer was set to stand trial, a federal judge in Texas dismissed a manslaughter charge against Charles Kleinert in the 2013 shooting death of Larry Jackson Jr., an unarmed black man.

..

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel cites a little known 1889 case that determined federal agents can be granted immunity from state criminal charges and undoes one of a handful of indictments handed down to police officers out of the thousands of fatal police shootings that have occurred in recent years.

..

Kleinert was one of 54 officers to be charged in connection with a fatal on-duty shooting from 2005 to 2014, according to a Washington Post analysis published earlier this year. So far in 2015, there have been more than 800 fatal on-duty police shootings that have resulted in charges for just five officers, according to a Post database.

..

Jackson, 32, was shot to death on July 26, 2013, after he visited his local bank.
