What A Personal Trainer Eats In A Day Betches

Whenever I tell someone I’m in the fitness industry, I always get a lot of questions about what a personal trainer eats. Because of my background, I think people assume I’m always very uptight about food, which I am, to an extent. I think that it’s very important for everyone to put quality nutrition into their bodies. Like, if you drove a Lambo would you fill it up with anything less than premium gas? No. However, I am SO FAR from being super restrictive about food, and I take the same approach to my clients. Because I used to have such a shaky history with food in my middle and high school years, I am very aware of the effect …

Manafort sentencing highlights Russia probe looming over Trump

Washington (CNN)Paul Manafort’s final date with his legal destiny on Wednesday — barring a presidential pardon — is sure to show why impeachment talk will not be quelled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s fresh attempts to tamp it down. That’s because the President will likely find it almost impossible not to weigh in on what happens in the courtroom. His comments and criticism will revive the question of whether he is planning a pardon for Manafort and potentially other indicted associates, the prospect of which plays into allegations of obstruction of justice and abuse of power. Pelosi tried to temper surging talk that her party could try to oust Trump — stimulated by its liberal grass roots and Republicans seeking …

Bernie Sanders Tests An Updated Pitch In Once-Hostile Territory

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. ― When Sen. (I-Vt.) traveled to South Carolina for the first time as a 2020 presidential candidate on Thursday,  in the state’s Democratic presidential primary three years earlier seemed like a distant memory. Mounting the stage in the gymnasium of a Baptist church to the Doobie Brothers’ “Taking It To The Streets,” Sanders received the kind of fawning reception to which he has become accustomed in larger and more liberal American cities. The crowd, 1,600 strong, according to Sanders’ campaign, welcomed him with chants of “Ber-nie” and roars of support that initially made it hard for him to complete his sentences. “Thank you for being part of a campaign which is not only going to win the …

UN: 25 Percent Of Premature Deaths Are Caused By Environmental Degradation

Environmental degradation is responsible for one in four premature deaths, the United Nations’ (UN) latest Global Environment Outlook (GEO) report reveals. That equates to approximately 9 million deaths in 2015 alone.  The report, unveiled at the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi on Wednesday, has been six years in the making and has involved the work of 250 scientists from 70 countries to gauge how environmental factors affect more than 100 diseases. It found that 1.4 million people die annually simply due to lack of access to clean water. This is because dirty water often carries pathogens that can cause easily preventable diseases – diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, and typhoid, for example. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are as many as 844 million people worldwide who …

Brexit has radicalized the UK’s political class

(CNN)Remember the days when British politics was like its weather and its food? Safely predictable, frequently disappointing, seldom extreme? Those days of moderation are behind us. The fish and chips haven’t changed, but everything else has. Stable, dependable Britain has become dangerously unhinged. So, what about that no-deal scenario? If, three years ago, you had predicted that the Prime Minister would be threatening an entirely voluntary policy that crashed the economy and necessitated food and medicine shortages, most sensible people would have laughed in your face. But this really is happening. The government has issued exhaustive guidelines, itemizing how our lives will change, and the health secretary has refused to guarantee that people will not die. If there is no …

They say the US deported them without their kids. Now they’ve come back to find them

(CNN)At a desert border crossing, more than two dozen parents lined up to seek asylum, determined to reunite with their kids after being deported without them. “There was no parent who has been deported, to my knowledge, without multiple opportunities to take their children with them,” Nielsen said on Wednesday. The two events highlighted a deep divide between the Trump administration’s defense of its now-reversed zero-tolerance policy and what advocates say is the devastating reality that separated families still face. The rare arrival of a group of deported parents on America’s doorstep, first reported by The Washington Post, is a reminder that the family separations crisis is far from over. Here’s what we know so far about these migrants who …

Democracy Is Good For Our Health While Dictatorships Make Us Sick

People who live in democracies live longer on average, and are healthier, than people in dictatorships, even when you account for differences in wealth. It’s not (mostly) because people are less likely to be shot or tortured in democracies, although that’s true, but because democracies tend to spend more on health care. Disturbingly, in recent years people who’ve never experienced anything else have started to doubt the value of government for the people, by the people, of the people. Although it sometimes gets exaggerated in news reports, citizens of democracies have increasingly started to endorse survey statements touting the superiority of strong but unaccountable leaders over elected parliaments. If you’re among those people who think dictatorships are more efficient, and …

People Are Still Talking About “The World’s Sexiest Koala”

Humans suck. We treat the planet like it is our own personal trash patch. (All non-human animals be damned.) We film ourselves eating Tide Pods and we use military weapons to light up.  Another terrible, terrible thing our species is wont to do is sexualize other animals. First, there was Shabani the gorilla. Then, there was this hench kangaroo – or roolander (sorry) – and New York’s “hot” duck. Now, we have the “World’s Sexiest Koala” because nothing is sacred. The innocent koala was going about his day, munching on eucalyptus leaves and doing whatever it is that koalas do, when British photographer Ross Long snapped him in an unusual pose. Long then posted a photo on Instagram with the caption “Draw me like one of your French …

Feminism with no human warmth leaves me cold | Zoe Williams

Im a fan of the acclaimed young writer known as the Slumflower. But her sexual creed of exploitation appals me, says Guardian columnist Zoe Williams A couple of years ago, the feminist society of Deptford Green secondary school convened a conference. It was there that I met Chidera Eggerue: aka the Slumflower, author of #saggyboobsmatter movement. She was a remarkable woman. I dont want to call her a remarkable young woman, even though she was 23 at the time: young is such a modifier and she would have been remarkable at any age. Her broad message was one of body positivity: if you love yourself and your shape, nobody can shame you. She built what I thought was a brisk, …

He’s spending $62 billion to transform a centuries-old Japanese company

Investors weren’t happy when Christophe Weber, the CEO of Japanese pharmaceuticals maker Takeda, said in March 2018 that he would pursue an expensive takeover of Irish rival Shire. Atul Gawande: The surgeon who Buffett, Bezos and Dimon trust to fix health care Michelle Gass: The Kohl’s CEO embraced Amazon More from Risk Takers 2019 Although its recent earnings have been strong, Takeda could face tough times ahead. The company makes drugs that treat cancer, but its pipeline of new products is thin. Takeda also does most of its business in Japan, where regulators are pushing for cheaper generic drugs as the population ages rapidly. “They were in a position where they had to do something dramatic,” said Andersen. Shire will …

Our goal is to halve the male suicide rate: why no-frills therapy works for men

Every week, around the country, groups of men meet for some straight-talking therapy. Could this be the answer to the male mental health crisis? A stranger has just thrown a ball at me and asked me how my week has been. Its Monday night, and Im sitting in a circle of a dozen men in a chilly community centre. This ball obliges me to tell the gang about my current emotional state. I have spent my entire adult life carefully avoiding situations like this. I came to Andys Man Club with my eyes open, thinking I was ready to share. But thats because I expected a different sort of group therapy session; a place where normal blokes could open up …
