0 Have your say HEALTH campaigners have clashed over claims the axing of exercise classes for those with chronic lung conditions would be a ‘death sentence’ for sufferers. The comment was made by the Eric Compton, chairman of Portsmouth Breathe Easy earlier this week, who was worried about the impact cuts on pulmonary maintenance classes in the city would have. It came after bosses from Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) confirmed they would be closing three groups across Paulsgrove, Buckland and Eastney.At the time, Mr Compton claimed 150 people could be affected and added: ‘This is condemning people to death. They’re taking away a service that is vital to so many people in the city.‘People are now frightened and scared. They don’t know what is going to happen.’However, his opposite number at the Breathe Easy Southsea group, said he was infuriated by the comments, which he branded ‘fear … [Read more...] about Portsmouth health groups clash over plans to scrap life-saving exercise classes for those with severe lung conditions
Lauren Rao, M.Ed., AT, ATC, CSCS for Henry Ford Health Published 7:00 AM EDT Oct 1, 2018 Health experts have been pushing almost-daily activity for decades. But a new study suggests you may not need to exercise four to five days each week to reap the rewards. While it’s true that more exercise is better for your body (without getting into extremes), not everyone can squeeze in 50 minutes of activity five days a week. For those people, this recent study confirms some exercise is better than none. Squeezing in Fitness Whether you’re an on-the-go parent or you work 60 hours each week, you can find ways to fit exercise into your day. A few ideas: Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park at the far end of the parking lot. Do strength-training activities in between household chores (do lunges while folding laundry or push-ups while waiting for the coffee to brew). Walk while you field phone calls. Sit on a stability ball instead of a chair. No matter which activity … [Read more...] about How much exercise do you really need?
Michael H. Hodges Detroit News Fine Arts Writer Published 11:24 p.m. UTC Aug 24, 2018 Taylor artist Keith Coleman’s got a thing for big, metal animals. He crafted the pensive bull that guards Wyandotte’s Merrill Lynch office. He created the large metal bear outside Wyandotte’s Roosevelt High School, and a moose and 13-foot alligator on Grosse Ile. Now he’s given life to a 12-foot-tall, fire-breathing metal dragon that he’s taking to ArtPrize next month. “I’m guessing the dragon weighs about 2,000 pounds,” Coleman said. “It’s all made out of recycled hot-water tanks. We’re guessing there are about 3,000 hand-cut pieces on it.” Hot-water tanks, you say? Well, Coleman took an interesting path to becoming a full-time metal artist. He did plumbing for 30 years, as well as a lot of work custom-building hot rods and motorcycles. Both trades turned out to be excellent training for an art … [Read more...] about Plumber-turned-artist takes fire-breathing dragon to ArtPrize
