10-minute healthy habits for 2017

Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply 5 changes to make that will enhance your wellnessHealthy living is an admirable goal no matter what time of year. The problem is that many people shoot for the stars, resolving to lose a big amount of weight or completely give up foods they adore. A better approach is to make small changes that together can make a big impact.“People who make smart yet simple lifestyle changes will find it’s easier to succeed,” says Dr. Margot Savoy, a practicing family physician in Wilmington, Delaware. “It’s about all the small victories that add up to winning the war. If you want to feel your best and make changes that will last, think small for big results.”Healthy habits take mere minutes a day to complete, but over time can overhaul your health and wellness. What’s more, she notes that when you do these easy activities for two or three months, they become automatic.Dr. Savoy suggests five simple steps for healthier living in 2017 that take 10 minutes or less to complete.Be informedStomach pains? Sore knees? Not sure if it’s the cold or the flu? Being healthy means staying informed. When you need more information about your health, visit a reputable website such as familydoctor.org to learn more with a few clicks of the mouse.Developed by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the website features easy-to-understand information geared toward the patient. Plus, all information is reviewed by a panel of board certified family physicians, so you can trust the content is updated and accurate.Snack wellEating well is all about balance, and while many Americans are striving to eat healthier at mealtime, it’s snacks that are sabotaging their diets. When hunger pangs strike, instead of junk, reach for nutrient-rich foods instead.One of the best ways to do this is to select one drawer in the refrigerator and dedicate it to foods for healthy snacking. Stock it with fruit, veggies, whole grain crackers and low-fat cheese and nuts. Spend 10 minutes each Sunday cutting vegetables and portioning out nuts and other snacks, and all week long you and your family can easily reach for healthier munchies.Move and grooveYou don’t need a fancy gym membership to get fit. Just block off 10-minute increments each day to work out and you’ll start to feel the difference. Try walking, biking or doing sets of squats, crunches and jumping jacks. Within minutes you’ll raise your heart rate and work those muscles.If you have kids, join in the fun with them and you’ll be surprised just how quickly you get in a quick workout. A game of tag, for example, is a great running exercise. Plus it’s a wonderful way to bond with your family. Bonus: Your kids are learning to exercise through play. Not sure how to get started? Familydoctor.org has you covered.HydrationEveryone knows soda is unhealthy, but for other drinks it’s not so obvious. Many fruit juices and sports drinks are packed with sugar and calories. Hydration is important, so drink as much water as possible to boost your health.Staying properly hydrated is essential to healthy living, and because the body is approximately half made of water, there’s no better drink than good old H2O. If that is too bland, add some healthy flavor with cut fruit, such as oranges, apples, kiwi or strawberries.Sun protectionThe sun gives off rays of light that are helpful and harmful. Some sun exposure is good because it helps the body create vitamin D, which absorbs calcium. Too much sun exposure, though, can lead to skin changes, a lowered immune system and cancer.It takes just a minute to slather on sunscreen to block harmful rays even in the winter months. Focus on the face which is exposed all year long, and during warm months or while vacationing, make sure to use sunscreen on the entire body, reapplying regularly. What’s more, teach children to do the same to create healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

Lianne McGrory, Country Manager at Salesforce.org, talks with UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake about what charities expect and need from a CRM. A 360 degree view and understanding of supporters, security, combination of data sources, remote access (particularly during 2020 and the rapid move to working remotely) have been essential for many organisations for some time. McGrory explains how Salesforce.org offers these and more, and how it works with and supports charities small and large with a flexible range of services, including how fundraising and impact might be better linked.

Black women’s work and reparations

first_imgThe staff of We Dream in Black, a program of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, July 25.July 31, 2017, was Black Women’s Equal Pay Day — the day this year that the average total wages a Black woman was paid since Jan. 1, 2016, finally equalled the average wage white men were paid in 2016.Seven extra months! That’s 19 months a Black woman had to work, on average, to earn the same wages a white man did in 12 months.Those months are not an abstract quantity. Those are the arduous days and nights of someone like Priscilla Smith, who is a home care worker in North Carolina. Starting in mid-afternoon, on duty until midnight, Smith does difficult work, both physically and socially, assisting up to 20 people a day. She is paid $12 an hour, with no paid sick leave or vacation, and then comes home to care for her own four children.Smith, a leader with We Dream in Black, a program of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, says: “The majority of people who do this kind of work are African-American or Latino women. The world needs to wake up and understand that Black workers need to be acknowledged, respected, and honored for their work.” (rewire.news, July 31) An even more severe wage gap exists for Indigenous women and for documented Latinas, who earn 54 cents for every dollar a white man makes.There are 24 million Black women in the U.S., and 60 percent of them are part of the workforce. But they have high unemployment, imperiled job security, a lack of benefits and advancement opportunities, and are the fastest growing U.S. prison population. Black women work more hours than white women on average, and half of Black women workers are mothers. (Economic Policy Institute, July 28)Famed and wealthy tennis star Serena Williams, speaking on pay discrimination against Black women workers, said: “If I [had] never picked up a tennis racket, I would be one of them. That is never lost on me. The cycles of poverty, discrimination, and sexism are much, much harder to break than the record for Grand Slam titles.” (fortune.com, July 31)Those cycles are rooted in the exploitation of Black women during their enslavement in the U.S. They were not paid for excruciating, forced labor in field or house. Under severest duress, they gave birth to children who were sold into similar bondage. Both kinds of labor by Black women yielded heartbreak, physical torment and death for them — and untold fortunes for Southern planters and the allied Northern banks, insurance companies and businesses.Black women’s unpaid labor — along with that of African-American people in general — was the foundation of modern U.S. capitalism.But Black women have been fighting back against exploitation from their first days on this continent. In addition to rebellious resistance and self-liberation during enslavement, Black women started to do labor organizing in the South as soon as they were emancipated.In 1866, Black women laundry workers presented demands to the mayor of Jackson, Miss., for a higher standard wage so that anyone belonging to the “class of washerwomen” could “live comfortably if possible from the fruits of our labor.”In 1881 in Atlanta, 20 women and a few men formed the Washing Society to demand similar wage increases for their work. They quickly grew to 3,000 primarily African-American women, with a few white women workers also involved. On July 19, they called a militant strike, ultimately successful, and described by historian Tera W. Hunter as “the largest and most impressive among Black Atlantans of late 19th century.” (“To ‘Joy My Freedom: Southern Black Women’s Lives and Labors after the Civil War”)The reward for centuries of fighting spirit and organizing by Black women should be more than equal pay. That would only bring their wages equal in the present year.But for those centuries of exploitation and the profits made thereby, there should be reparations! Reparations for enslavement and forced labor, for the terrible damage inflicted by racism.More than just equal pay — we demand reparations for Black women’s unpaid work!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Paralympic athlete tells court she’s determined to get to Rio

first_imgNewsParalympic athlete tells court she’s determined to get to RioBy Staff Reporter – April 22, 2015 790 Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up AN IRISH paralympic horsewoman says she is determined to make the Rio 2016 games after injuries sustained in a County Limerick car crash forced her to miss the London 2012 Paralympic games.Breda Bernie is 40-year-old Cerebral Palsy sufferer, but could ride a horse at the age of five even before she could take her first steps unassisted.At a sitting of the High Court in Limerick this week, she gave evidence of how she was driving back to Limerick city from dressage training session at a Crecora equestrian arena when her car was written off after a collision with a John Deere tractor and trailer on a narrow road in February 2011.She was at the height of her training with the elite high performance Para Equestrian Ireland squad to reach the Olympic qualifying standards at international dressage events for the London 2012 games when the accident occurred.Ms Bernie, who has represented Ireland at both European and World Championships, described how she had left the stables in Crecora and was returning to Limerick city where she was staying at around 7:45pm on February 25, 2011.Noticing the lights of a vehicle coming towards her, the two time paralympian said she slowed and pulled in as close to the ditch as possible.“Only when the lights came closer did I realise that over half of their vehicle was on my side of the road before it attempted to turn back to its own side.”Ms Bernie described how the subsequent impact with the tractor forced the rear of her car off the road and into the ditch causing over €15,000 worth of damage. The car was written off and she said this left her in shock and with extensive injuries to her neck, back and arm.Ms Bernie said that “there was little or no dialogue” between herself and the tractor driver after he initially asked if she was alright. He also refused to allow her use his phone to contact Gardaí as her own phone was in the boot of her car and couldn’t be accessed.Ms Bernie was initially treated and later referred to her GP. She was subsequently treated by pain and orthopaedic specialists.She missed the first qualifier for London 2012 two months after the accident and her scores at subsequent events failed to improve. despite having ranked at the Irish Paralympic standard before the crash.She was told that she had not been selected shortly before the last qualifier in Germany a number of months later. She continues to have pain despite having regular pain relief injections and is much slower doing things at home.Although still suffering from her injuries, she has since returned to horse riding and told Mr Justice Michael Moriarty that she is “hoping to get to the next Olympics”.“Through determination, I will get to Rio de Janeiro “, she said.In cross examination, Ms Bernie accepted that she had suffered other injuries as a result of a number of falls from her horse at competitions or while hacking, but denied that she had returned to her baseline health status within a few weeks of the accident.Following a brief adjournment on the second day of hearing, Mr Justice Michael Moriarty was told that the case had been settled and costs were awarded to Ms Bernie.

Brian Montgomery on the Future of FHA

first_img Share Save The Hon. Brian D. Montgomery, FHA Commissioner and Assistant Secretary for Housing, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, headlined a powerful lineup of industry professionals who gathered Monday as part of the Legal League 100 Servicer Summit. A long-running industry tradition, this latest Summit unfolded as part of the annual Five Star Conference and Expo at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas.Montgomery spoke about his return to HUD during a Q&A with Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. Having served as FHA Commissioner from 2005 to January 2009, Montgomery stepped back into the role in May 2018, following his nomination by President Donald J. Trump and confirmation by the Senate. Montgomery also previously served as Vice Chairman of The Collingwood Group and, before initially joining HUD, he worked in the Executive Offices of President George H.W. Bush and President George W. Bush.Montgomery’s Q&A came amidst a day filled with networking and education opportunities at the Summit, a biannual event that brings together the League’s lineup of financial services attorneys, servicing professionals, and government representatives.In addition to Montgomery’s Q&A, the day’s lineup included a morning keynote address by Marion McDougall, EVP & Chief Loan Administration Officer, Caliber Home Loans. The bulk of the event was divided between a half-dozen 45-minute sessions focused on a variety of topics and featuring the insights of subject-matter experts and industry professionals.First up was “Working Smarter: Developing Effective Loss Mitigation Procedure,” which explored recent regulatory and litigation developments, as well as what procedures financial services law firms should develop to ensure full compliance. The “Pulling in the Same Direction: Collaborating to Improve Title Processes” session ran concurrently, focused on how servicers and law firms can partner to reduce title errors that can mean the difference between the transfer of an unencumbered property and lengthy litigation.After the 10 a.m. Networking Break, the Summit picked back up with a pair of simultaneous roundtable sessions: “Keeping up With the Code: Adaptive Bankruptcy Practices” and “Litigation Developments: The Rulings That Make the Rules.” Before the lunch break at noon, attendees were able to take in both the “Creative Management: Maintaining Viability in a Low-Volume Environment” and “Inside the Lines: Navigating Emerging Regulatory Concerns” sessions.Montgomery’s Q&A followed the lunch break, then led into the Servicer Super Session, in which Legal League 100 Chair Roy Diaz discussed trends and collaboration with a panel that included Allen Myers, Assistant General Counsel, VP, Mortgage Banking, JPMorgan Chase; Stephen Staid, SVP, PHH Mortgage; Ruth Price, First VP, Compliance & Oversight, Bayview Loan Servicing; and Ramie Word, SVP, Performing Servicing, Mr. Cooper.This week’s Legal League 100 Summit was sponsored by a360, Auction.com, BDF Law Group, McCalla Raymer Leibert Pierce, McCarthy Holthus, ProVest, Robertson Anschutz & Schneid, and Stern & Eisenberg.To learn more about the Legal League 100, visit the official website.

Caution brings slow rate of union claims

first_img Comments are closed. The first disputed cases of statutory union recognition have come at a slower rate than expected as unions exercise caution.Sir Michael Burton, chairman of the Central Arbitration Committee, which mediates in contested recognition cases, said it had only had nine applications in its four months of new powers.When the CAC came into force with the union recognition section of the Employment Relations Act in June, it was planning for as many as 150 cases in the first year. The CAC has nine deputy chairmen and 32 members representing employers and employees. There has been a major expansion of the committee and staff to take on the expected workload.“We are delighted with this as it will ease us into our task less frenetically than we had feared. Probably the reason for it is the enormous number of voluntary agreements,” he told delegates.“Unions are being cautious in the cases they bring to the CAC because the process is complex and the three-year bar is a powerful incentive to unions to get their application as well prepared as possible. Either way, I expect the pace to quicken through the autumn.”The DTI’s director of collective employment rights Jonathan Startup said ministers were not disappointed at the small number of cases. “If this is evidence of caution before going down this route then it is well and good as this was what the legislation was intended to do.” Related posts:No related photos.
