Long cardio exercises won’t help you lose weight

The general consensus seems to persist that the longer you engage in a steady-state/moderate “cardio” activity, such as running or using an elliptical machine, the more your health and waistline are likely to benefit. However, research suggests that long periods (more than 60 minutes per day) of this kind of repetitive cardio workout aren’t the best way to lose weight or improve your fitness, and could even be detrimental to your health.

Video: A Guide to Stairlifts

It’s a real impediment to a person’s quality of life not to be able to move freely around their own home due to mobility problems, but the installation of a stairlift can provide a welcome means of comfortably getting around the house. Instead of fearfully treading carefully up or down a flight of stairs, this device can transport a person from one story to another with the maximum of comfort. Stairlifts are also highly customizable. Even if the stairs of your home contain an awkward angle, you can get a curved stairlift that will be manufactured specifically for the measurements of your stairs.

This short video from Home Healthcare Adaptations   describes the different types of stairlifts and outlines just how much of an impact they can have on the lives of people whose mobility is extremely limited....

Noise exposure is the main cause of preventable hearing loss all over the world. It now accounts for more than a third of all cases of hearing loss in developed countries – and city dwellers are most at risk. A study published recently in The Lancet revealed that living in a noisy city increases your risk of hearing damage by 64 per cent. Noise is measured in decibels (dB). Zero decibels is almost complete silence. It is the quietest thing someone with healthy hearing can hear above absolute silence (which is -9dB). A typical conversation is around 60dB, and anything you...
