first_imgThe chair yoga class at the Anchorage Senior Activity Center. (Hillman/Alaska Public Media)Outside the Anchorage Senior Activity Center in mid-December, melting snow dripped off the roof on to icy walkways. Inside, Eileen Apodaca joined three other women in the dimly lit exercise room for Tai Chi class. Facing a wall of mirrors, Apodaca patiently practiced her moves, like monkey stealing peaches.“Ok, grab your peaches,” she said as she pantomimed reaching down and grabbing something. “Hold them tight, look both ways.”She tightened up every muscle in her body as she clutched the imaginary peaches against her belly.Eileen Apodaca practices Tai Chi at the Anchorage Senior Activity Center. (Hillman/Alaska Public Media)By practing the 3,000-year-old Chinese martial art, Apodaca was helping prevent a statewide problem that doesn’t have a solution – yet. In many parts of Alaska, seniors have trouble accessing proper medical care and finding doctors who accept Medicare. Organizations across the state are working to solve the issue but meanwhile others are trying to make the need less pressing by focusing on prevention. In this case, exercise for seniors.Seventy-one-year-old Apodaca said the slow and delicate Tai Chi moves that focus on balance and shifting weight have made a significant difference in her life. “I was falling down a lot three years ago. And when I started doing this – I haven’t fallen down.”Apodaca had polio as a child, which impacted her legs. As she gotten older, the lingering effects have made it harder for her to get around. Her physical therapist recommended she try Tai Chi because the movements aren’t strenuous, but they provide a whole body workout. Some research says it helps overall health.Apodaca, a former elementary school teacher, said she doesn’t get sick as often since starting the exercises. “Of course, I’m not around kindergartners either!”Falling is a huge issue for older people. According to the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, it’s the number one cause of injuries for Alaskans who are 65 and older. Falling led to 1,600 hospitalizations in 2015, each of which cost about $55,000. And falls can lead to more health problems – healing is harder when you’re older.Richard Pankowski prefers gaining balance and flexibility while sitting down. Twice a week he goes to the senior center exercise room, settles into a padded chair and stretches his legs out, resting them on another chair. For the next hour, he stretches all of his muscles and meditates during a chair yoga class.“I need the exercise to stay young and supple because of the fact that when you get to be 90, you get a little stiff, a little old,” he explained when leaving the class. “And you don’t want to do that. You don’t want to become a couch potato. So I can still climb a ladder and go up on a roof, and get yelled at for doing it.”He said even the little stretches help him do things like turn his neck to look around when he’s driving, which makes everyone safer.Brittney Mitchell, fitness activity supervisor at the Anchorage Senior Activity Center, shows off a letter of appreciation from a senior. (Hillman/Alaska Public)Brittney Mitchell, the fitness supervisor for the Anchorage Senior Activity Center, said some people have physical improvements very quickly. One woman said it only took a week of working on the exercise machines to help her limp. Others have steadily improved their balance over time through dance focused classes.“It’s very rare when I have people from dance cardio [class] fall anymore. And if they do, it’s for something very silly like [tripping over] a dog.”Tripping over pets is a major cause of falling. Area rugs on hardwood floors and slippery bathroom surfaces cause problems, too. In fact, even in ice-covered Alaska, most falls happen in the home, when people aren’t being as cautious.But exercise options are doing more than just keeping seniors upright – they’re helping them connect. Isolation and loneliness cause health problems, too. Friendships prevent that.“Our treadmill walkers like to watch people in the parking lot,” she said. “And so they just strike up the conversation that they like someone’s shoes.” That chatting leads to the exchange of phone numbers and growing relationships.Those friendships are part of what keeps Opodaca coming back to Tai Chi class.“The camaraderie of our group – we’ve just really gelled as a group. We go out to lunch and stuff,” she said.Overall, Apodaca said she feels more positive. The exercises haven’t solved all of her problems, of course. She still worries about getting to places, like to her friend’s house for a dinner party.“I’m already having anxiety about how am I going to walk up her driveway, especially in the ice,” she said, fretting over an invitation for the next day. “And how am I going to get up her stairs carrying a casserole. And I already have kind of anxiety feelings like eeeh!”Apodaca knows she can’t do everything she wants to, like travel to some places and go up steep stairs, but she’s more confident in getting around in her day-to-day life.“You just have to have an attitude about what you’re capable of and what you’re not capable of,” she said. “And you can’t grieve it. You just move on and do what you can. And be positive.”She said working out helps her do that.Want to hear more Solutions Desk stories?

first_img Share Kin Cheung/APVisitors sit beside a model of China’s Tiangong-1 space station in 2010, at the 8th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai in southern China’s Guangdong Province. As forecast, China’s defunct Tiangong 1 space station re-entered Earth’s atmosphere Sunday.Updated at 10:15 p.m. ETAs predicted, China’s Tiangong-1 space lab fell from the sky on Sunday evening.The city bus-sized craft, which almost entirely burned up as it re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere, broke into small pieces as it plummeted over the South Pacific Ocean. The derelict spacecraft has been slowly falling out of its original orbit for several years.The disintegrating lab hurtled from orbit toward the South Pacific waters at about 8:16 p.m. ET, reports.Scientists say the disintegrated debris that survived the fiery descent was likely small and relatively harmless, reports NPR’s Rebecca Hersher.“The Chinese space agency had originally planned to bring the lab back in a more controlled way,” Rebecca says. “But after it stopped functioning in 2016, they decided to let it fall to earth on its own.”As NPR’s Scott Neuman noted in our earlier reporting, the “space lab” was part of China’s planned research as it works toward a permanently staffed space station. (China does not participate in the operation of the International Space Station.) A second space lab, Tiangong-2, was launched in 2016.“The 34-foot-long, 18,000 pound Tiangong-1, or ‘Heavenly Palace-1’ was launched in 2011 as China’s first attempt at an orbiting space lab,” Scott wrote. “It was occupied by two separate crews of three astronauts, or taikonauts, each – a mission in June 2012 included China’s first female astronaut, Liu Yang. A year later, another crew included the country’s second woman in space, Wang Yaping.”The demise of Tiangong-1 has been long anticipated.In 2016, an amateur satellite tracker observed that the satellite appeared to be on track for an uncontrolled fall of orbit. That was months before the Chinese government acknowledged that the space lab would be re-entering the earth.At the time, China had predicted a late 2017 re-entry, but later estimates pushed that date back into early 2018.The “re-entry prediction window” from the European Space Agency, or ESA, had tightened significantly by Sunday morning, to a four-hour window centered on 1 a.m. UTC on Monday. In the continental U.S., that’s Sunday evening.ESA previously projected the craft to fall between a vast swath of the planet, including the entirety of Africa, most of South America, the continental U.S. from Boston south, and much of China. “At no time will a precise time/location prediction from ESA be possible,” the organization said.“Space junk this size falls to Earth a few times a year,” NPR’s Nell Greenfieldboyce reported, but “it’s usually something like a spent rocket stage — not a home-away-from-home for space travelers.”That makes this re-entry an interesting one, she says. But it’s not particularly dangerous, Bill Ailor, of the Aerospace Corporation’s Center for Orbital and Reentry Debris Studies, tells Nell:“In 60 years of space exploration, only one person — an American woman named Lottie Williams — is known to have been struck by falling space junk, says Ailor, ‘and it was just like a piece of fabric material that kind of brushed her on the shoulder.’Copyright 2018 NPR.

Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’John Tun Sein is a believer in non-violence, calmness and quietness, sympathy and love that guided him to discover what goes unnoticed in human life. The tranquility is his default and painting an innate desire. His incredible consistency projects a larger symphony interwoven with forms and cordial colours for the eyes to listen. An experimenter by nature, he shows acute concern for the intangible aspects of contemporary sensibilities remolding them into sensory colour fields; thus surfing on a wave and emerging out of several complimentary forces of form and formlessness.

first_imgIntrepid Travel Intrepid Travel has announced that it will provide a full refund to moviegoers who see Al Gore’s new documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power in Australian cinemas this month.The Melbourne-based adventure company’s offer to fully refund cinema tickets could cost Intrepid Travel thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of staff time but the company is happy to wear the cost.Recognised as a global leader in responsible travel, Intrepid’s co-Founder Darrell Wade had ‘an existential crisis’ when he realised the impact of the global tourism industry on the environment. Wade was one of the first Australians to undergo Al Gore’s Climate Project training and committed Intrepid Travel to a Carbon Management Plan. Intrepid has been a carbon-neutral business since 2010 that carbon-offsets trips on behalf of travellers. Since 2014 the company has also carbon-offset for sister brands Peregrine Adventures, Geckos Adventures, and Adventure Tours Australia.“We are the lucky country. A nation of travellers, yet it appears many Australians have their ‘heads in the sand’ when it comes to climate change,” said Wade, Intrepid’s co-Founder and Executive Chair. “Our finance team are going to hate me for doing this. Sea level and cinema ticket prices have both risen over the past ten years. We’re expecting to do hundreds of individual movie ticket refunds, so this is going to cost us big time – but if it inspires just a few people to ask inconvenient questions then it’s all worth it.“As a travel company we see the environmental impacts first hand, at home on the Great Barrier Reef and in places like Antarctica. We want to preserve these amazing places for future generations and that’s why we think it’s so important that Aussies see this documentary.”In fact, Intrepid Travel staff were obliged to post almost 1500 hand-written cheques around Australia ten years ago, when the company’s offer to refund moviegoers tickets to An Inconvenient Truth went ‘viral’.The Aussie passport is among the world’s most powerful, opening the door to hundreds of countries and ABS data shows over 8 million Aussies head overseas each year. Yet, a study published in Global Environmental Change journal found that Australian’s were among the world’s biggest climate change sceptics.The new film is particularly important for Australians to see, says Intrepid Travel co-Founder Darrell Wade, because it shows how close the world is to a renewable energy revolution while demonstrating the power of the people to influence governments and big businesses to create real change.Al Gore’s award-winning original documentary brought climate change into the heart of popular culture and shocked Intrepid Travel in to taking action. A decade ago, the company not only launched the original refund scheme that would go on to encourage hundreds of sceptical Australians to see the film, Intrepid also started on the path towards becoming a carbon neutral business.An Inconvenient Sequel follows former Vice President Al Gore in the lead up to the Paris Agreement as he influences international climate change policy through his belief that the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power is in cinemas from Thursday 10 August. A decade on from the original ‘Inconvenient’ offer, all refunds will again be individually issued by Intrepid staff – but with money transferred online this time. Moviegoers will need to visit and provide a copy of their movie ticket to be eligible for a refund. Full terms and conditions are outlined on the website.*Full terms and conditions are outlined on the website.last_img read more

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterSince I was last at one of Portugal’s top and best-run hotels, Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, a new chef has taken over at the exciting Erva, ‘herbs’, restaurant, Artur Gomes. He is such a passionate culinarian, and he is producing fabulous food. Before, this had been yet another Mediterranean restaurant, with old-fashioned décor. Now it is a stunning looks-outside space, Erva (herbs), with herb pots on plain tables, and brick walls adorned with living green plants hung in metal pails. There is a glass-fronted ageing cabinet for Portuguese beef and lamb, and a Josper grill in the open kitchen, which actually more like ‘in the restaurant’ than a kitchen that happens to be open to the dining space.Corinthia Lisbon | Erva RestaurantDo as the cognocenti do. Start with a flaming cocktail, Casa da Avó, based on your grandmother’s soup cauldron (pine needles underneath are lit, as flames, and the ‘cauldron’ holds Zacapa 25 rum, Bulleit Bourbon, and the whole is topped with caramelized hazelnut). Go on to tapas, say magnificent bacalhau, salted cod, tempura, with garlic mayo and unagui, a reduction of soy sauce. Also on the table was a magnificent shoulder of baby lamb, with a side of white bean purée, plus Quinta das Bágeiras olive oil, both cow’s and white sheep’s butters, and Gleba breads. The glass of Casa Cadaval 2015 Trincadeira Preta enhanced the whole.Corinthia Lisbon | Erva – Cuscuz Legumes CogumelosWith a live DJ in one corner, a whole-wall window and door fronting on busy Avda Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro, and, inside, a veritable horticultural show of living greenery, it is not surprising this 90-seat dining-drinking venue is popular with locals as well as those staying in the 518-room hotel.Corinthia Lisbon | Sete Colinas Terrace CombiNew luxury to the people who stay at Corinthia Lisbon, and to locals, is eating and drinking that is comfortable and fun. Other than in the few months of Lisbon winter, the 500-plus guests having breakfast can eat outside in a garden terrace. The indoor buffet is supplemented by 3 outside stations, all vehicles, but stationary. A pale pistachio VW camper (pictured above), just as one’s grandparents used for annual holidays, is the egg-cooking station. A taupe Citroen delivery van, as still seen on the streets of Montmartre, dispenses hot pastries. A cream bicycle-van holds ice-cream from local celebrity ice company Artisani. Add to this, later in the day, Soul, an outdoor lounge with decorative water features and three outline-only wood cabanas (pictured below). While the live musician of the day, perhaps a percussion with a single indented metal drum, plays, you can even ask one of the mixologists to design a Martini specially for you.Corinthia Lisbon | Soul Garden IslandMany hotels have their own magazines but this hotel’s Explore stands out. It is overseen by GM Roderick Micallef, and its contents do exactly as its name implies. It encourages you to explore, outside and in. Throughout this May, for instance, there are concerts every Sunday at the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, 14 minutes’ walk from the hotel. Any day, take a walking tour, Museu Nacional de História Natural e de Ciénca via Embaixada Concept Store, Jardim do Principe Real, Cevicheria, Pavilhão Chinés to Miradour de S Pedro de Alcántara. Alternatively, walk eight minutes to Lisbon zoo (get privilege tickets from the concierge). Within the hotel itself, look for paintings by Porto-based Susana Bravo, Corinthia Lisboa’s artist in residence. And read about some of the hotel’s sustainability initiatives: the laundry, for instance, uses natural gas, which uses only 50% of the energy that steam requires.Corinthia Lisbon | Deluxe Junior Suite – Living roomAlthough the business-mix of those staying here switches from summer’s mainly-leisure to winter’s higher-corporate and groups, the hotel’s source markets, and their new-luxury wants, are pretty consistent (they want everything under one roof). Lisbon Corinthia has the city’s biggest conference facilities, plus second biggest wellness in Europe. Fortunately I was here long enough to be able to do justice to the spa, which has 13 treatment rooms, plus a sizeable indoor pool and really good Technogym, 24/7 as all luxury hotels should have.Any really great hotel can answer, and solve, whatever hiccup you as a traveller might have. After spa-ing, especially, you might need your hair done, and here is a first class salon, run by Lisbon’s top hairdresser, Marina Cruz. I am sure if I had needed clothes repaired, someone would have done it, quickly. I had a 5.30 a.m. departure and my breakfast, with hot eggs, came at five o’clock, on the dot. What really amazed me, however, was when I had an issue with Skype which needed resolving. No problem, someone can come in 40 minutes. Sure enough, 40 minutes later, two highly knowledgeable guys, in beach gear and flip-flops, arrived – Diogo Ferrera and Ricardo Pais had, indeed, been on the beach that Sunday, but they were honestly and charmingly pleased to help. This is more than a hotel, it’s a highly desirable way of life.Lead image: Corinthia Lisbon | Presidential Suite – BedroomGo back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

first_imgBeginning on November 6 through November 14, 2009, Rosa Lladró, President of Lladró and daughter of Juan Lladró, the eldest of the three founding Lladró brothers, will visit the USA and Canada to unveil a new Lladró piece and sign purchases of Lladró admirers in nine locations: Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Dallas, Las Vegas, Costa Mesa and Beverly Hills.At the events, Rosa will present Enigmatic Beauty, a new sculpture inspired on the magical charm of one of the most traditional and exotic cultures of the world, Japan. The new piece pays tribute to the sophisticated grace of Japanese women, the richness and delicacy of their magnificent kimonos and the spiritual depiction of nature in their colorful ornamentation.This innovative sculpture combines matte and glazed finishes with golden luster in both shiny and matte, together with an extraordinary intense red hue. The accurate painting of flowers on the silk kimono as well as the geometry of the golden obi sash shows the mastery of the Lladró artists. The rich opaque matte enamels of the dress contrast with the white porcelain in the face and hands, creating an interesting effect that enhances the beauty of this sensual woman with enigmatic grace wearing an extraordinary kimono.As a gift with any Lladró purchase, guests will receive the coffee table book Kimono and the Colors of Japan, an illustrated guide that examines the country’s most traditional garment, and a matching bookmark featuring the new Lladró piece.www.lladro.comlast_img read more

first_img NBC Sports is set to bench its play-by-play NASCAR announcer for an all-analyst lineup headlined by Dale Earnhardt Jr.The network will use three analysts in the broadcast booth for next week’s NASCAR Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Earnhardt, the 15-time most popular NASCAR driver, Jeff Burton and Steve Letarte will be the only broadcasters for the July 22 race at the Magic Mile.Rick Allen, the lead announcer for NASCAR on NBC since 2015, will call the second-tier Xfinity Series race and will contribute to NBC’s Cup Series practice and race coverage.Earnhardt’s name value and blossoming effort behind the mic has made NBC willing to mix up its broadcast formula.
