It is no secret that health care turns into a bigger concern for many of us as we grow older. It is a extra complicated question as every plan comes with completely different strengths and weaknesses. The purpose is to seek out the best plan to your particular needs and price range. We’d recommend you start with a big worldwide insurance coverage company with a powerful presence each within the country you will be residing in as well as your private home country. Doctors here should not poor both. They drive their Ferrari’s, Porches, Mercedes and so on and reside in three story mansions. Clearly they get quite properly paid by the Government here underneath Medicare. This isn’t a food regimen but a method of including meals to what you already eat for larger health and weight loss. There are not less than 260 million instances of COVID-19 worldwide, in … Read more

These High-Tech Workout Tools Hack Your Brain for Greater Gains

Everyone’s looking for an edge. That’s why we’ll freeze ourselves in cryotanks, sweat buckets in infrared saunas, and jolt our muscles with e-stim. Now, athletes are turning to neurotechnology devices (high-tech workout tools) that train the brain for a leg up over the competition—even if that competition is simply beating last month’s PR. Perhaps the most high profile (and certainly most expensive) example is the FitLight Trainer (From $1,499; fitlighttraining.com), a system of lights you mount on the wall or floor, which flash in accordance to a training program. You have a set amount of time to deactivate them with your hands, feet, head, or a piece of equipment. The lights record reaction time, helping athletes who need lightning-fast foot- and hand-eye coordination (think soccer and basketball players) improve their speed and agility.

Attention Coaches!

Attention Coaches…

One day after turning 49 and I’m already COMING OUT!!

I have been keeping a big secret! Although you see my books, my programs, etc alll about (aging, fitness, and nutrition) this is NOT ALL I AM… Wait what?! You see, It’s what I have built. It’s what I created from nothing. But that’s not all of who I Am. “Who I AM” is also someone who provides simple solutions. I am someone who gets to the root of problems quickly, identifies solutions and SIMPLIFIES them. I’m someone who helps other find their potential and possibility which then gets them powerful radical life changing results.

How do I do this?

SALES

And “sales” is not a slimy thing. It’s just done wrong a LOT and that’s why people are so uncomfortable with that word. When it’s done right, It’s a super amazing helpful skill for all parties involved! … Read more

Triple therapy helps control severe asthma

Asthma affects approximately 20 million adults in the US. It is a common cause of workplace and school absenteeism, and is one of the leading causes of hospitalizations in the US. Between 5% and 10% of asthmatics have frequent, persistent symptoms despite treatment with multiple medications, and are categorized as “difficult to treat” and “severe” asthmatics. In these patients, asthma can be life-threatening.

Identifying ways to control symptoms and asthma exacerbations in these patients is an important goal of asthma researchers.

Proper technique and particle size impact effectiveness of inhalers

Asthma symptoms result from a combination of airway inflammation and constriction, so asthma therapies are focused on relieving both processes. Asthma medications are frequently delivered via the airways using inhalers. This mode of delivery allows high doses to reach the airway surfaces without significant absorption of medication into the bloodstream.

But inhalers have some important drawbacks. First, patients must have … Read more

Don’t Listen to Trail Runners, the Hiking Boot Is Far From Dead

This article originally appeared on Powder.com and was republished with permission.

The summer that never seemed to relent is nearing its calendar finish and cooler days are on the horizon. It’s nearing the perfect time to log some serious vert in preparation for ski season. If you want to be strong to ski fast down mountains, hiking up them swiftly is a pretty good training regimen. However, finding footwear that can handle technical terrain, support your feet while carrying a heavy load, and be light enough to not bog you down can be a tough row to hoe. The Salewa Mountain Trainer Lite balances all of those elements, taking the attributes of their mountaineering boots and placing them in a lighter-weight and more comfortable package.

How Tom Ellis Gained 20 Pounds of Lean Muscle for 'Lucifer'

Two years ago, when Fox canceled their comic book-based series Lucifer, lead actor Tom Ellis made a pact with trainer Paolo Mascitti that if the show came back he would take the physical preparation for the character to the next level. The show was snagged by Netflix shortly after, and Ellis made good on his promise. Before filming began on each season, Mascitti put Ellis through an intense boot camp. In case you’re not familiar, Ellis plays the devil, who hightails it to Los Angeles to open a nightclub (as one does).

“I don’t need to work hard to motivate Tom when it comes to the gym,” says Mascitti. “He enjoys being challenged, and listens to any instruction I give him.” The training continues over FaceTime when Ellis arrives on set or is traveling, allowing … Read more

How New Fathers Can Cope With Postpartum Depression and Anxiety Disorders

You probably assume at least some things about fatherhood—perhaps that it’s filled with joy and love and, at least at first, sleep deprivation. What you likely don’t know? That one in 10 dads experience a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD)—that’s postpartum depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), for example—after becoming a father.

Makes sense. The lessons we teach boys and men about vulnerability go something like this: Don’t be vulnerable; it’s an antithesis to strength, explains Daniel Singley, Ph.D., a San Diego-based board-certified psychologist and director of The Center for Men’s Excellence, who studies postpartum mood disorders in men. The short version of what society teaches men about fatherhood? That it’s all about providing and protecting.

How to help your child get the sleep they need

This year, back-to-school plans are still a work in progress, and some (perhaps many) children will be learning from home because of the pandemic. As tempting as it might be to let the summer sleep schedules stay in place, it’s important that children have a regular routine — and that they are sleeping during the dark hours and awake during the light ones, as our bodies do best that way. So while a child whose trip to school is just a walk to the kitchen table might be able to sleep a bit later than one who has to catch an early bus, no child should be spending all morning in bed.

Sleep is crucial for all of us, and this is particularly true for children. Without enough quality sleep, children are more likely to have health and behavioral problems — and difficulty learning.

Here are a few simple things … Read more

Watch: An Epic Motorcycle Surf Odyssey Across New Zealand

“Finding perfect waves with just a friend is one of the best feelings a surfer can experience,” says Byron Bay’s Torren Martyn at the outset of his new surf feature, “Lost Track New Zealand.” The lengths to which Martyn and his friend, filmmaking partner Ishka Folkwell, are willing to go to dial in that seemingly-simple-yet-increasingly-rare brand of surf-experience is something to behold.

We’ve already seen the pair–Martyn’s lengthy twin-fins always in-tow–snowshoe through Iceland. We’ve also watched as they shirk all other responsibilities to post up in J-Bay, Mainland Mex, Scotland and other locales for months at a time.

Others Opinions Don’t Matter

Others Opinions Don’t Matter

“Stay in your lane”
“You are too old”
“That’s a stupid idea”
“That’s ridiculous”
“You can’t afford that”
“No one would say yes to that”
“I would never do that”
“You better have a plan B”
“That is too risky”
“No one wants to hear that from you”

I’ve heard them all … and the more I share and grow, the more risk I take, the more I step into a bigger life, the more I hear it…

But… hold up! OTHERS OPINIONS ARE NONE OF OUR BUSINESS

Others “opinions” used to run me….

Asking for approval.
Seeking approval..
Caring (way too much) what others thought.

That becomes a problem when it gets between you and your goals and vision. I’ve experience this a LOT lately as I’ve shared about my new focus and business plan.

So how do you fix this? Here is what I

Here's How to Help Those Displaced by the Santa Cruz Wildfires

If you ride in the American west for long enough, you eventually learn how it feels to lose a trail to fire. When we worry about wildfires, that’s what we worry about. But the CZU August Lightning Complex fire, whose origin is less than 20 miles northwest of the city of Santa Cruz, is threatening more than just our trails. It’s threatening our people.

Both Ibis Cycles and Santa Cruz Bikes are headquartered in Santa Cruz. Bell, Giro, Blackburn and Fox Suspension are just a few miles north in Scotts Valley, as are BMC’s U.S. operations. Even Specialized is not too far from the burn area in Morgan Hill, which had its own little 340-acre flare-up in early July. But the CZU August Lightning Complex fire has burned over 80,000 acres, and at the time of writing this, is only 21-percent contained.

Which test is best for COVID-19?

Now that we’re several months into the COVID-19 pandemic, steps we need to take to effectively control the outbreak have become clear: conscientious prevention measures like handwashing and distancing, widespread testing with quick turnaround times, and contact tracing. None of these is easy to maintain over a prolonged period. But combined, they are our best bets while awaiting better treatments and an effective vaccine.

So, which tests to use?

The many types of tests available are sowing considerable confusion. Unfortunately, because this novel coronavirus is indeed novel, and COVID-19 is a new disease, information about these tests is incomplete and the options for testing keep changing. But here’s what we know now about tests designed to diagnose a current infection, and those that show whether you previously had the virus.

Why Every Guy Should Raise a Puppy at Least Once

I moved to Colorado when I was 23 years old. The plan was to work for the ski resort in Telluride and, after the ski season, return back home to Chicago to get a real job after I had figured it out. Well, I either never figured it out or I really did figure it out…whatever it is, because I still live in Colorado and I’ve transformed my ski bummery into an actual career path and a lifestyle rife with the stereotypes of a happy outdoor life. My face and feet are adorned with a near permanent goggle and flip-flop tan. Skis line my walls. I invest in gear not stocks. I drive a Subaru. And I (finally) have a dog.

It’s been a year of wonderful dog companionship with Bodhi (named after Swayze’s character in Point Break, ‘cause duh). And being a dog dad has been the most … Read more
