Charlotte Jones, director of programming with Play Build, one of the many organizations that took part in the event, said of the Lewis children, “These kids share a bedroom in a shotgun house so even using this tiny park is a ton of space for them and having the streets opened up is phenomenal. They are so excited when they get more room.” It is the fifth and final Play Streets event with previous ones having taken place at A.L. Davis Park in Central City, the McDonough Playground in Algiers, Conrad Park in Hollygrove and Joe W. Brown Park in eastern New Orleans. This was the first, however, to place such a heavy emphasis on bicycling and was inspired by a trip Jennifer Ruley, with the Louisiana Public Health Institute, took several years ago to Mexico City to attend one of their weekly ciclovias. “Since that Insanity Workout day, we’ve been working hard to bring a ciclovia to the streets of New Orleans,” Ruley said.

Does green tea actually aide weight loss?
And a recent article about the use of weight-loss apps like Daily Burn and Livestrong said that paying for these types of weight-loss apps didn’t get users much more than the free ones provided. The study showed that all of these weight-loss apps may not actually be translating into slimmer people, which might be because apps don’t help people with strategies for making permanent lifestyle changes. But the good news is that free apps are just as likely to use evidence-based strategies, that is, strategies that have been scientifically researched and found to be effective . Some old-fashioned weight-loss methods appear to be even more effective than newfangled apps. One doctor said that 95 percent of his patients who used a food journal lost weight.

If green tea was the answer to fat loss and optimum health, the world would be a different place today. Even if green tea does increase metabolism to a certain extent, one can only break down fat stores by exercising and increasing the body’s muscle mass to raise his/her BMR,” says nutritionist Nysha Bijlani. Moreover, green tea can never serve as a shortcut to weight loss. Strength and conditioning coach, Arnav Sarkar helps us understand this better – “There was a study in which it was seen that green tea caused only about 0.3% reduction in bodyweight in a 12 week period, so that would be only about 0.27 kg weight loss for someone who weighs 90 kgs in 3 months, which is insignificant and disappointing to say the least.

Digestive System Tee Shirt Science Activity
Food must be broken down into a form that is usable by the body’s cells. This is done by the digestive system. Mechanical digestion begins in the mouth when food is broken down into smaller pieces. Chemical digestion breaks the food down into molecules that can move through the cell membrane.

Another Diabetes Device Bites The Dust
Sixteen patients received a placebo on the same schedule. The clinical trial’s main outcome was a measure of how well the pancreas could secrete insulin in response to food, two hours after eating. Using this measure, the researchers found no significant differences between the two groups of patients. They did, however, find a significant difference between the two groups of patients four hours after eating.

Until now Sanofi looked like a lock to earn a corporate frog for their plan to sell special lunch bags for patients with diabetes. How this translates into selling more insulin only the folks at Sanofi seem to know. Next it looked like Abbott and Roche would make the list just because they are Abbott and Roche and no corporate frog award list would be complete without them on it. The fact that Bayer is actually in business would have exempted them form the list as we honestly believed there was a better then 50/50 chance the unit would have been sold or closed before the year was over.

High intensity exercise `beneficial and safe` for cardiac patients
“For the past 10 to 12 years we have become incredibly proficient at the counter-insurgency mission that we have been fighting in Afghanistan,” NATO’s military commander, U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove, told a news conference. If NATO were ever called on to defend an alliance member, “we have to be prepared for the more high end of military operations,” he said, speaking at a NATO headquarters at Brunssum in the Netherlands on Wednesday. The exercise calls for NATO forces to oust an invader. Breedlove denied it was aimed at repelling a hypothetical Russian invasion.

K. G. Jebsen from Center of Exercise in Medicine at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway, analyzed data from four randomized, controlled trials conducted at the centre to try to determine what characterized the most effective high-intensity training programme for this patient group. The researchers used changes in VO2max, which is peak oxygen uptake, as a measure of the effectiveness of the different exercise regimes The exercise period lasted for 12 weeks. The participants ran or walked on treadmill, walked uphill outdoors or trained in a group, all following the 4×4 exercise model. The 4×4 exercise model involves 4 minutes of high-intensity exercise followed by 3 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise, repeated 4 times. Lead author of the study, Trine Moholdt, said that when they compared VO2max before and after the training period, they found that the number of training sessions, the subject’s age or baseline fitness levels had no impact, however the intensity of the intervals had a significant effect, and seemed to be the most important characteristic of an effective interval session.

Exercise May Prevent Stress and Anxiety, Study Suggests
“We found that exercise helps to buffer the effects of emotional exposure. If you exercise, you’ll not only reduce your anxiety, but you’ll be better able to maintain that reduced anxiety when confronted with emotional events.” The researchers compared the effects of 30-minute periods of quiet rest and moderate-intensity cycling on the anxiety levels of healthy college students. The students’ anxiety levels were measured before the 30-minute stints of exercise or rest, and reassessed 15 minutes afterward. Their anxiety was gauged a third time after they were shown an array of both neutral and highly stimulating photographs. All students completed both the rest and exercise versions of the test. The study revealed that both exercise and quiet rest initially eased participants’ anxiety.
