By Mark William LiskyAccording to information provided by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the leading five causes of death in the U.S. from birth to middle age in descending order are all-cause accidents, birth defects, cancer, homicide and heart disease. Aside from accidents which holds a very high constant at the number one spot until about age 45, the other causes have some crossover peaks and valleys.At about the age of 10, death by birth defects fall rapidly and is replaced by cancer. During one short period between the ages of 25 to 35, suicide overtakes cancer at the number two spot for mortalities. Deaths from liver disease spike shortly above both homicide and suicide at age 50.Apart from some of these fluctuations, there is a startling change between the ages of 45 and 55. Accidents, liver disease, homicide and suicide begin to disappear from the radar. These are replaced in descending order by cancer, heart disease, stroke, respiratory diseases and falls. Eventually, after age 65, heart disease beats out cancer as the number one killer of men and women.There can be little doubt that immaturity, risk taking, being in the wrong place at the wrong time and the feeling of invincibility all play roles in causing deaths by accidents in early life. However, the major causes of death after the age of 55 are not accidental. They are the known, highly researched and publicized realities of aging. And unlike accidents, a large part of the increased or decreased potentiality of suffering from heart disease, cancer, stroke, respiratory diseases and even falls, lies in the hands of each individual.Also, the future state of our health may not lie in our family history as much as once thought. New research is suggesting that only about 30 percent of potentially terminal disorders are genetically based. The other 70 percent are dependent upon variables based on lifestyle choices. That’s correct. Seventy percent are choices a person freely makes.These choices begin with the lack of any real physical activity (couch potatoitis). Research suggest that up to half of the physical decline and diseases associated with aging may be due to lack of physical activity. This number may be a lowball, it could be up to three-quarters according to some medical experts. Other choices that promote physical decline include all types of smoking (including second-hand), eating too many calorie dense nutrient poor foods, obesity and stress.It seems through genetic research, that a potential window of opportunity for change happens around 55. As mentioned, this is the point of transformation from dying-off young, to the beginning of the long process of dying-off old through the diseases of aging. This is the time, too, a person can tilt the odds in favor of not being a statistic at the NCHS by planning out the next decades.That plan must begin by getting more physically active via exercise, begrudgingly or not. There is no getting around this fact. Smoking cessation or dieting alone, though very important, may not be enough to change the final outcome of years of unhealthy choices.Citing Dr. Oz in a 2010 Time Magazine article, “for all the medical tests we have in our modern arsenal, the ability to exercise remains the single most powerful predicator of longevity. Humans are designed to be physically active throughout their lives.”In countless research studies worldwide, the absolute common denominator in preventing, postponing or improving current health disorders or their recurrence due to aging is exercise. These diseases include heart disease, cancer, type II diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, obesity, sarcopenia (loss of lean muscle mass), depression, lower back pain, stress disorders, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and fall anxiety/balance issues.Quoting from an article written by Peggy Vaughn in which she interviewed Dr. Leslie Bernstein, professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Dr. Bernstein said. “Exercise can play as important a role in cancer prevention as the latest screening tool or chemoprevention drug.” New research shows that exercises that help increase lean muscle mass (strength training) have special benefits for diabetics, since lean muscle improves the ability of muscle cells to utilize insulin and manage blood sugar more efficiently.It’s not only the physical factors that are affected by exercise. Teresa Liu-Ambrose, Ph.D., of the University of British Columbia and colleagues reported in a letter published in the April 23 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, “Exercise is a promising strategy for controlling cognitive decline. Indeed, both aerobic and resistance training have been shown to improve cognitive performance and functional plasticity in healthy seniors living in the community as well as those with mild cognitive impairment.”Exercise affects many other physiologic functions. The March 2012 Harvard Health Letter reported studies which focused on Parkinson’s disease that strongly suggested exercise in the forties, decades before Parkinson’s typically occurs, may reduce the risk of falling victim to Parkinson’s by 30 percent. Also, in 2004, research found that the physical activity of skeletal muscle during exercise altered the range of some genes. These alterations produced dramatic molecular changes in the cells, which the researchers suggest, make us healthier.In the face of the preponderance of evidence about the immense value of exercise, the decision to use it as a tool to increase well-being and promote healthy longevity falls upon an individual. Even understanding the facts, many people will think about adding exercise in their lives but not act, others will try it for a time and then stop.If a person wants to exercise and truly reap the benefits, whether it’s in mid-life or later in life, it does take commitment, self-control, compliance and a bit of sweat. These habits are the foundation of successful exercise. All that is possible with exercise comes down to getting to a gym 2 times a week for 20 minutes, walking on a treadmill and lifting some weights. That’s it. And the catch is, anyone can do it and anyone can adapt new habits. Exercise is also the least invasive, least costly and most effective way of changing the disease statistic game of aging. It is more than just an activity to drop a few pounds. It is unquestionably vital to a robust, healthy and long life and as essential as your next breath.Mark William Lisky is a personal fitness and nutrition advisor.

By John Burton HOLMDEL – The name of a Monmouth County Superior Court judge is one of two being proposed by Gov. Chris Christie to serve on the state’s highest court.David BaumanChristie this week forwarded the name of Monmouth County Superior Court Judge David Bauman as one of the two nominees to serve on the state Supreme Court. The governor’s other nominee, Robert Hanna, is president of the state’s Board of Public Utilities (BPU).Bauman, 56, is a Holmdel resident who has been on the Superior Court bench in Freehold since July 2008. In September 2009 he was named presiding judge of the court’s civil division.Bauman previously was in private practice with the Bressler, Amery and Ross law firm in Florham Park, where he was a partner for 10 years, concentrating on civil and commercial litigation and criminal law.A U.S. Marine who served for four years on active duty, Bauman worked as a defense counsel, prosecutor and special counsel with the U.S. Naval Investigative Service. He also served in the Marine Reserves for 12 years.Bauman earned his law degree from Boston College in 1986.A Republican, Bauman was nominated to the bench by Democratic Gov. Jon S. Corzine and was unanimously approved by the state Senate’s Judiciary Committee and the whole Senate by a 37-0 vote, according to information provided by the governor’s office.“I do know him and I admire him both personally and professionally and he’s done an excellent job here in Monmouth County,” said former state Supreme Court Chief Justice James Zazzali, a Rumson resident.Hanna, 54, of Madison has 30 years experience as a lawyer, including working as an assistant attorney general with the state’s Department of Law and Public Safety. He was director of the Division of Law for two years and had been with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey for 16 years, four as chief of securities and health fraud unit.Hanna, who received his law degree from Fordham University in 1984, has been BPU president since 2011.The appointments are contingent on Senate approval. The seven-member Supreme Court in not permitted by the state constitution to have more than four members of one political party at any given time. read more
With the success south of the border by the Spokane-based Gonzaga Bulldogs, it was seem appropriate that Mallard’s Source for sports honour a local basketball squad for its own amazing season on the hardwood.The L.V. Rogers Bombers, finishing with a 10-6 record, won the West Kootenay AAA High School Boy’s Basketball Championship.For that the squad earns Mallard’s Team of the Week honours.

GARY STEVENS EXCITED ABOUT OPENING DAYGary Stevens may not celebrate the 12 days of Christmas, but he sure looks forward to Dec. 25 and 26.The 25th is Christmas Day and the 26th marks the start of the 79th season of racing at Santa Anita, where the Hall of Fame rider is as much a part of The Great Race Place as its art-deco façade.“I’m super-excited right now,” Stevens said about opening day. “We’ve got Christmas coming and Opening Day at Santa Anita is my Christmas, and has been for a number of years. I always look forward to it.“This year I’ve taken a good piece of time off. Except for winning the (Los Alamitos) Futurity (Sunday on Mor Spirit), I hadn’t ridden since Del Mar. I’m super-fresh and excited about the meet.“I think everybody’s worried about El Nino coming, but it is what it is. We need the rain, but saying that, I hope we don’t just completely get swamped. It’s a long meet. I keep that in the back of my mind, too, that you’ve got to kind of pace yourself and think about the big picture, the whole year.”‘MAJESTIC’ EYES FIRST STAKES WIN IN MATHIS MILEPerfectly Majestic, a consistent son of Majesticperfection, seeks his first stakes victory when he runs in Saturday’s Grade II Mathis Brothers Mile for three-year-olds on turf.Third in his last two starts, including the Let It Ride at Del Mar Oct. 31, the chestnut gelding bred in Kentucky was a game third last out, beaten only a half-length under trainer Bob Hess Jr. mainstay Kent Desormeaux, in an allowance race on Nov. 22.“The horse has been training well. He’s good to go,” Hess said. “He needs to improve a length or two. As much as I love Kent, he needs a little more patient ride.”Desormeaux, a fixture with Hess since his heyday in the 1990s, has ridden Perfectly Majestic in five of his nine races, winning two.FINALLY, GRASS LOOKS GREENER FOR GARY MANDELLA Gary Mandella hoped to have two horses entered in the Grade III Daytona Stakes for three-year-olds and up at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf Opening Day, No Silent and Silentio, each sired by Silent Name, a son of 1989 Kentucky Derby winner Sunday Silence, who stood in Japan. Silentio did not draw in, however.“We had nowhere to run,” the trainer said in explaining why No Silent has not raced since finishing an eventful sixth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Keeneland Oct. 31. “This is my first opportunity to run and for all turf sprinters to run. That’s why the Daytona has a full field (14 were entered). Del Mar had nothing in its stakes schedule.”METZ FAMILY GOES ALL IN AT SANTA ANITASanta Anita has its own version of All in the Family this meet.Trainer Jeff Metz, who turns 49 on Dec. 29, is on hand with eight head; his wife, Jennifer, is a regular at the clockers’ stand and also informs patrons of news at her “Jennifer’s Corner” post at Clockers’ Corner on weekends; their daughter, Zoe, is a social media photographer for the track’s Marketing Department; and their 17-year-old son, Josh, is an exercise rider.Jeff and Jennifer have been together for 28 years.“In addition to the eight horses at Santa Anita, I have horses at Turf Paradise in Phoenix and some at Golden Gate,” said Metz, who was born in Alameda and grew up in Fremont. At the recent Emerald Downs meet, Metz tied a record for wins with 66 during the first 70 days of the 91-day session, tying the Emerald Downs single-season record previously set by Tim McCanna in 2008.Metz has won the last three training titles at Emerald Downs, winning 42 races in 2013, 49 in 2014, and 66 in 2015, beating runner-up Frank Lucarelli by 38 wins, also a track record.“I started in racing when I was 16 at Pleasanton, moved to Los Angeles when I was 21 and was an assistant with Bruce Headley and Dan Hendricks,” Metz said.“I’m very excited to be back at Santa Anita. It’s been a few years, but now I’ve got a few owners who want to race here and hopefully we’ll do well. At least we have horses that are going to run, so that’s good.”FINISH LINES: Santa Anita will give away its popular full color Wall Calendar free on opening day to all fans at the track with paid admission while supplies last. The theme of the 2016 calendar is “What’s in a name,” describing how some Thoroughbreds come by their peculiar monikers . . . The first 20,000 paid attendees will receive a $100 Mathis Brothers Furniture gift certificate, and the first 5,000 kids 17 and under accompanied by a paid adult will get a plush, mini-Thoroughbred toy, courtesy of the Mathis Brothers . . . Santa Anita will offer an opening day Trackside Package that includes special trackside seating, a free first drink, and an officially licensed American Pharoah T-shirt commemorating the first-ever Grand Slam champion of horse racing.

Saturdays and Sundays, it will jump up to $500,000, while the Pick 6 guarantee will remain at $150,000 . . . BREAKING NEWS–Santa Anita earns 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor, a major search engine . . . LA Woman Stakes winner Ben’s Duchess, prepping for the La Brea, worked five furlongs Monday in a bullet 58.40 for John Sadler. It was the fastest of 70 drills at the distance, the average time of which was 1:01.27 . . . Chantal Sutherland, who hasn’t ridden on a regular basis since June 2014, is back riding and reunited with agent Tommy Ball. “She missed riding tremendously, she enjoys it, and it’s in her blood,” Ball said. “When she stopped, she got her real estate license and did that, but she missed riding too much and had to come back. She’s been working quite a few horses, so she’ll have some mounts coming up pretty soon.”-30- BAFFERT’S BACK WITH GRADE I WINS ON HIS MINDBob Baffert has done it all, from capturing multiple training titles to winning the Triple Crown, but the Hall of Fame conditioner who turns 63 on Jan. 13 is not resting on his redoubtable resume.He is back on the beat as usual, preparing his stable of equine bluebloods for “Santa Anita, the toughest meet in America.”One at the ready is Lord Nelson, who worked four furlongs in company Monday morning in 46.60 under Martin Garcia for the Malibu Stakes at seven furlongs this Saturday, Dec. 26.Stablemate Wolf Man Rocket was clocked in 46.80.The Malibu, restricted to three-year-olds, is one of two Grade I races Opening Day, the other being the La Brea Stakes, also at seven furlongs, but exclusively for three-year-old fillies.The Malibu, which offers a $300,000 purse, is one of the most prestigious sprints on the North American racing landscape, having been won by stars such as Round Table (1957), Native Diver (1962), Buckpasser (1966), Damascus (1968), Ancient Title (1974), Spectacular Bid (1980), Precisionist (1984), Ferdinand (1986) and the late, great Shared Belief (2014).“It looks like he’s ready to roll,” Baffert said of Lord Nelson, a chestnut son of Pulpit owned by Peachtree Stable. “It’s going to be a really tough race, but the Grade I races are never easy. He needs a lot of things to go his way.“He needs a quick pace up front. He’s been off for a while, but Grade I opportunities don’t come along that often; he’ll run well.”Lord Nelson has not raced since May 2, when he was fourth in the Grade III Pat Day Mile at Churchill Downs. He lists two bullet works among his most recent drills, and won the Grade II San Vicente Stakes at seven furlongs here on Feb. 1.Baffert also entered Maybellene in the La Brea.Owned by Baffert’s wife, Jill, Maybellene has not raced since last March 22 when she crossed the wire second in the Sunland Park Oaks, beaten a neck by stablemate Callback, but was advanced to first via disqualification.“She hasn’t run in a long time, but there’s been nowhere to run her,” Baffert said of the bay daughter of Lookin At Lucky, who has been working well for her return. “She’s training well, but I think the post position draw will determine whether she starts.“If she runs one-two-three, it’ll be good.”Two additional graded stakes will be decided Opening Day, the Grade II Mathis Brothers Mile and the Grade III Daytona.First post time opening day is 12 noon.

Senator Pádraig MacLochlainn has renewed his criticism of the Government over the ongoing failure to adequately resource and overhaul diabetes services in Donegal.His comments come as patients here increasingly report experiencing significant challenges in accessing podiatry services locally.Concerns have also arisen over the lack of supports for pregnant diabetes patients. Meanwhile, a long-awaited centre of excellence for diabetes care for the northwest has still yet to materialise.The Donegal Senator is now calling on the Minister and Letterkenny hospital management to urgently examine the situation in a bid to ease the fears of patients.Senator MacLochlainn said “As we all know the members of the Donegal branch of Diabetes Ireland have been to the fore in campaigning and lobbying for change in the way services are delivered here across the county.“The association has passionately fought to keep the issue of diabetes care the focus of attention, and their members have tirelessly worked to get senior officials, Oireachtas members and the Minister together to listen to their genuine concerns about, what has for too long, been a service in crisis. “In fact last year, the data with respect to services for adults with Type 1 diabetes revealed that patients had been waiting up to a year for routine appointments and up to 2 years for all recall appointments, despite the HSE’s own guidelines which recommend they be reviewed every 6 months.“And while we know that Donegal has the requisite numbers of adults and children living with diabetes as well as the necessary critical mass to warrant locating a centre of excellence for diabetes care here, we’ve yet to see the type of progress of a long awaited facility delivered.“What we are now hearing from patients is that many of them are facing huge waits to access podiatry services which, as we know, are crucial to avoid the emergence of complications associated with the disease such as diabetic foot.“It’s well documented that people with diabetes run a significantly greater risk of developing one or more severe health complications due to the condition compared to the general population including neuropathy, kidney damage, eye damage and – in serious cases if unchecked – even amputations.Concerns have also been voiced about the serious lack of supports for pregnant diabetes patients in the county. “Given the significant challenges patients here now face, my colleague Deputy Pearse Doherty and I have voiced their concerns to both the Minister and hospital management because clearly this situation cannot go unresolved.“Patients here deserve and have the right to access and receive treatment in a timely manner and should have access to services on par with those in other parts of the country.“Shamefully however, the current government seems quite happy to oversee this ‘post-code lottery’ when it comes to providing services to diabetes sufferers across the northwest and that is simply not acceptable.”Donegal Diabetes patients continue to be ignored – Senator Mac Lochlainn was last modified: May 16th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:diabetesdonegalSenator Padraig MacLochlainn read more

Play Your Part Ambassador Shamila Ramjawan is committed to improving the lives of young South African girls whose socio-economic conditions are less than desirable.For Shamila, feminine hygiene needs fall right at the top of this list. According to Stellenbosch University (SU) Law Clinic, approximately 30% of girls in South Africa miss school due to inadequate access to sanitary products.The menstrual cup has been identified as a sustainable solution for menstruation woes, granting young girls the opportunity to get education. As a result, Shamila founded the Princess D Menstrual Cup in 2016 after conducting thorough research. The PrincessD Menstrual Cup is cost-effective, eco-friendly and hygienic, and is currently available in 20 countries and 50 pharmacies in South Africa.Through her initiative, Shamila has brought relief to thousands of lives having handed out menstrual cups and educating girls in 22 schools in South Africa through corporate funding. As time passed, many South Africans bought into Shamila’s vision for the PrincessD Menstrual Cup. One such person was World Champion, Caster Semenya who was on-boarded as a brand ambassador and co-owner of PrincessD in 2017.Shamila named the PrincessD Menstrual cup after her daughter Daksha, who is a 23-year old nominee at the Woman of Stature Awards in the Youth Ambassador Category. Perfectly designed for the target audience, the cups are boxed and wrapped in a silk-like packaging, are microwavable (for cleaning purposes) and can be reused for up to 10 years.She has two registered companies, Famram Solutions (marketing and communications solutions) and Famram Foundation (empowering, uplifting and providing CSI solutions enhancing socio-economic development).Her hard work and dedication to improving the lives of others doesn’t go unnoticed. Shamila will be participating in the Mrs Johannesburg pageant, taking place on 17 November 2018 at Leriba Hotel & Spa. The pageant recognises women like Shamila who make a difference in communities through education and skills development.Click here information about the pageant and to vote for Shamila. read more
The Madhya Pradesh government on Monday began organising gram sabhas in villages to consider afresh rejected claims of Scheduled Tribes and other traditional forest dwellers to forest land rights under the Forest Rights Act (FRA), 2006. As the Supreme Court hearing on July 24 to receive affidavits from States with regard to the status of pending cases gets closer, Additional Chief Secretary Panchayat and Rural Development Gauri Singh directed District Collectors to hold gram sabhas from July 15-20 wherever claims were rejected. As on June 30, out of 6,26,511 claims to forest rights in the State, 3,60,181 (57.49%) had been rejected, and are now being reviewed. Period tentative Stating that the one-week period for holding the sabhas was tentative and the review process could take longer, Rakesh Singh, Commissioner, Directorate of Tribal Area Development and Planning, said,“A State-level monitoring committee on February 27 had decided to review the rejected claims pending with district level committees at the village level, which is the basic unit facilitating claims to forest rights.”In several cases, he added, it was found that due opportunity to produce evidence to stake claim was not given to claimants, no reasons were stated for the rejection of claims, and claimants lacked awareness about the application procedure. “Most tribals and forest-dwelling people are vulnerable and they need to be guided into claiming their rights. During gram sabhas, we will review whether officials followed rules in rejecting claims, and the sites in question need to be revisited,” he said. To streamline the process and deal with the bulk of claims, the State has launched an online application system, Van Mitra, in the Hoshangabad district on a pilot basis, said Rishi Garg, Additional Commissioner, Tribal Welfare Department.Transparent system“Applicants can upload their documents on the portal or approach Gram Rozgar Sahayak present in each gram panchayat to help them with it. It’s a transparent system wherein applicants can check the status of their claim at every stage and, in case of its rejection, know the reason,” said Mr. Singh. On February 28, the Supreme Court had stayed its controversial February 13 order that lakhs of those whose claims were rejected be evicted from forests. It acknowledged the need to delve into whether due process was followed by State governments before claims were rejected. The court had asked States to respond to allegations, including that claims were rejected on incomplete information, reasons for rejection were not stated to claimants, and State-level monitoring committees met irregularly. Madhya Pradesh has 24 tribal districts, the most in the country, and the largest forest cover of 77,414 sq. km., according to the India State of Forest Report, 2017. In the Bhopal division, 56,276 of 72,101 claims, and in the Indore division, 64,474 of 1,58,584 have been rejected.Contentious issueStaking claim to forests rights and arbitrary evictions by foresters has been a contentious issue in the State. On July 9, during an eviction drive by the Forest Department in the Burhanpur district, foresters allegedly fired pellets against tribals, injuring four of them. Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Saturday ordered an investigation into the incident after several political leaders demanded action against those responsible. read more
