ExerciseNZ (ExerciseNZ) CEO Richard Beddie praised new research from a team of evolutionary biologists and biomedical researchers at Harvard University in the United States, which shows that people who live longer are more likely to be more physically active.

Featured in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), the work presents evolutionary and biomedical evidence showing that humans, who have evolved to live several decades after ceasing to reproduce, have also evolved to be relatively active in their later years.

The research, Relax as you get older? Wrong, shows that physical activity later in life shifts energy from processes that can compromise health to the body’s mechanisms that prolong it.

Advising that the exercise industry has always known that physical activity is great for people’s longevity, which is now confirmed by research, Beddie (photo below) explains “the Harvard researchers did their job. They hypothesize that people have evolved to stay physically active as they age – and in so doing, to allocate energy to physiological processes that slow the body’s gradual deterioration over the years.

“It protects against chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and even some cancers.

“Researchers say that as people get older it becomes even more important to stay physically active.

“Their paper is the first detailed evolutionary explanation for why lack of physical activity as humans age increases disease risk and reduces longevity.

“The body’s response to physical damage, however, is essentially to build back stronger.

“This includes repairing tears in muscle fibers, repairing damage to cartilage and healing microfractures.

“The response also causes the release of exercise-related antioxidants and anti-inflammatories and improves blood circulation. In the absence of physical activity, these responses are less activated.

Beddie urges people to choose to exercise, engaging in voluntary physical activity for health and fitness reasons.

He also points out that physical activity levels have declined around the world as machines and technology replace human labor.

The advice of researchers is that people do something and try to make it enjoyable in order to keep going. Even small amounts of physical activity – just 10 or 20 minutes a day – dramatically reduces the risk of death.

Beddie refers to World Health Organization guidelines recommending that children and adolescents between the ages of five and 17 get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity per day.

He goes on to say that “physical activity for more than 60 minutes a day will provide additional health benefits. Adults between the ages of 18 and 64 should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity throughout the week, or at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity each week.

“But the key is to start somewhere, once a week for 30 minutes is better than no exercise.”

Coquitlam Express collects 300 teddy bears for underprivileged children https://witheridge-devon.com/coquitlam-express-collects-300-teddy-bears-for-underprivileged-children/ Sat, 27 Nov 2021 20:30:00 +0000 https://witheridge-devon.com/coquitlam-express-collects-300-teddy-bears-for-underprivileged-children/ This was the first teddy bear tossing game in two years for the BCHL team, as all were brought together to spread the holiday cheer to young children. “So really a fun event that does good for the community. “ It took 40 seconds for the mountain of about 300 teddy bears to rain down […]]]>

This was the first teddy bear tossing game in two years for the BCHL team, as all were brought together to spread the holiday cheer to young children.

“So really a fun event that does good for the community. “

It took 40 seconds for the mountain of about 300 teddy bears to rain down on the ice at the Poirier Sports and Recreation Complex, a spectacle that Coquitlam Express general manager Tali Campbell was happy to see for the first time in two years.

The last was on December 1, 2019, a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic took full effect, altering the BCHL playoffs and the shortened 2020-21 season that followed.

Campbell tells the News from the three cities there was a mixed feeling between the organization and the fans to witness the return of a key junior hockey tradition for a greater cause on Friday night (November 26).

“It’s fun with respect to who can score that goal to make the bears fly on the ice,” he said.

“Fans love it because it’s something different because normally you would be dumped for throwing something on the ice and it’s a big event as many teddy bears are given to families in need.”

This year, the stuffed animals are donated to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau (LMCB) – a nearly century-old nonprofit that aims to put a smile on every child’s face for the holiday season through acts of sharing and gift.

Christian MacDougall won the plush rainmaker title for the 2021 game against Surrey, scoring on a power play less than a minute into the first period.

The 20-year-old Toronto veteran passed to the goal line from the right side of Eagles goaltender Max Prazma and backhanded to the top left corner of the net to sound the horn.

Fans then started tossing, lifting and throwing the bears onto the ice. After posing for a few photos, players, volunteers and staff collected them in bins dedicated to the LMCB.

Campbell says he continues to be amazed by Coquitlam’s generosity and appreciation for his own community despite the ongoing challenges and struggles.

“Almost 1,000 others crammed into the station [last night]. They continue to come and support this team and that means a lot to us. “

The Teddy Bear Toss night officially drew the third-highest fan base of all 2021-22 Coquitlam home games to date (962).

The capacity of the Express Games has since been lifted, but fans are required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in accordance with British Columbia public health protocols.

The Black and Yellow, unfortunately, would lose 7-4 to Surrey in their fifth meeting of the season with the Eagles.

Coquitlam begins a seven-game road trip tonight (Nov. 27) at 7:15 p.m. in Chilliwack against the Chiefs.

Marlon Gray-Deacon (in red) with his opponent Theocharis Kariz

The Banbury Spiceball Leisure Center will host the final stages of the England Junior National Boxing Championships this weekend from Friday 26 November to Sunday 28 November.

They will also be joined by the Youth Development Championship boxers.

And on the schedule, a host of senior bouts in the England National Amateur Boxing Championships and Senior Development Championships, with the winners advancing to next weekend’s quarter-finals at Cannock.

George Miles of the Banbury Boxing Club (in blue) with his opponent Jamal Kayani

The action starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday and at 12 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are available for same day purchase, £ 20 per adult, £ 10 per concession (over 65), £ 5 (6-15). Cash only.

Sadly, the senior boxers of the Banbury Boxing Club did not qualify for this next round of the championships, but still had positive experiences competing against the best clubs in the country. These were the club’s first competitive matches since the Covid-19 epidemic.

George Lines marked his 30th competition as an “Elite” boxer at Luton on Saturday night, rising to 3 rounds of 3 minutes in the Home Counties 61-64 kg regional semi-final of the England National Amateur Boxing Championship against Jamal Kayani from High Wycombe.

George didn’t take the win, but put on a great show, forcing his opponent to stand up all the way. He got caught with impressive, well-timed kickbacks that scored against him with the judges.

He finished the 3rd tour force and was ready to start for a fourth but it was too late to change the verdict. For George’s very first Elite 3x3min contest, he put on a performance that thrilled the audience who cheered him on until he returned to change rooms. It shows that he can be a good hope at this level. If he had reached the next round, he could have faced a top-seeded boxer from the GB team.

On Sunday in Carterton, ‘Magic’ Marlon Gray-Deacon competed in the Home Counties regional final for the title of senior development champion in boxing 57-60kg (5-20 fights). He was shot against highly rated Greek international boxer Theocharis Karzis of Hoddesdon.

Despite a strong performance, Marlon lost on a points decision to the more experienced boxer. The first round was very balanced and a great display of boxing from Marlon, who moved well and pulled off some eye-catching punches.

The tide turned at the end of the second round when the magic wore off and the Hodbox boxer stepped things up for the rest of the fight.

Australia announced as ‘preferred candidate’ to host 2027 Rugby World Cup https://witheridge-devon.com/australia-announced-as-preferred-candidate-to-host-2027-rugby-world-cup/ Wed, 24 Nov 2021 19:52:52 +0000 https://witheridge-devon.com/australia-announced-as-preferred-candidate-to-host-2027-rugby-world-cup/ World Rugby has announced Australia as its “preferred candidate” to host the 2027 Rugby World Cup, with the World Rugby Council overnight accepting a recommendation from the Rugby World Cup Limited board to work exclusively with Australia on a hosting model for the event.

World Rugby has announced Australia as its “preferred candidate” to host the 2027 Rugby World Cup, with the World Rugby Council overnight accepting a recommendation from the Rugby World Cup Limited board to work exclusively with Australia on a hosting model for the event.

Australia, which had long been a favorite to host the event, saw an emerging bid from the United States to host the tournament six years from now. However, after the overnight meeting, the United States is now in a position to host the 2031 edition.

Welcoming the news, Rugby Australia President Hamish McLennan said: “This is a big step forward in our ambitions to host the 2027 Rugby World Cup and to relaunch the game in Australia.

“Throughout this process, we have been convinced that the time has come to bring the Rugby World Cup back to our shores.

“The Rugby Australia team have worked hard on this for several years and today’s announcement is a great reward for those efforts.”

Earlier this month, McLennan had suggested that Australia’s hosting of the tournament would help bridge the growing ‘north-south’ financial divide in the game, then suggesting that hosting the World Cup and touring British and Irish Lions in 2025 could try rugby. league players to change code.

Following the announcement of the ‘Preferred Candidate’, McLennan went on to say: ‘Thanks to the support of the federal government and the strong commitment of our state and territory governments, we have been able to come to a position where we can demonstrate to World Rugby that we are a sure pair of hands and the obvious choice to host RWC 2027.

“This is a once in a generation opportunity and we are now closer than ever to making this dream a reality. Game On for Australia 2027. “

The 2023 Rugby World Cup takes place in France.

Australia hosted the last Rugby World Cup in 2003.

Modification of World Rugby rules to allow players to change national teams
World Rugby has also approved a historic change in its eligibility laws that will allow players to change test nation.

In a move that will significantly strengthen developing countries in time for the 2023 World Cup, eligible players will be able to switch nations starting in January.

Players are eligible to change nation if they have been banned for three years – in other words, have not been selected for 36 months – and if, or a parent or grandparent, were born in the country they wish to represent.

The Pacific Island nations are among the teams set to reap the most awards with a large number of players from the region currently playing for New Zealand, Australia and European nations.

The motion was supported by the World Rugby Council after sustained lobbying by World Rugby President Bill Beaumont, who pledged to make changes as part of his manifesto for re-election.

The Queensland government focused on women’s safety at Queensland licensed sites with stakeholders from the hospitality and entertainment industry, community groups and government meeting at a panel discussion at Brisbane today (23 November).

Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Minister for Women and Minister for Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Shannon Fentiman said the roundtable was an important step to better understand and respond to the issue of women’s safety in licensed locations across the state.

Minister Fentiman noted that the state government is firmly committed to eliminating all forms of violence in Queensland communities to ensure that “the safety of women at a party is an important part of it.

“Sexual assault, harassment and other unwanted advances happen to women every day and it is everyone’s responsibility to work together to end it wherever it happens.

“We already have great work underway in the industry to foster respectful behavior and ensure that Queensland bars, pubs and clubs are safe and welcoming places for women.

“Today’s roundtable builds on this work to find practical solutions that create lasting change to keep women safe at a party.

“With almost one in three customers reporting experiences of unwanted sexual attention in and around licensed locations in some of Queensland’s busiest nightlife areas, it is important that we work with all stakeholders to change the culture of a party and solve that problem. “

Townsville Liquor Accord President Arthur McMahon said it was important for everyone to agree to promote safer places and added, “We need to challenge outdated cultural norms and work together with l industry, government and the community sector to make the necessary change. . “

“There must be a clear and consistent message for clients making unwelcome remarks, advances or worse towards women, whether they are staff or guests, that they are not welcome at our sites and that their behavior will not be tolerated.

“It’s also important that people know that help is available and that they have clear and easy access to information on who to contact and how.

“I’m proud to say that Townsville sites are already engaged and taking action, with initiatives rolled out across the Townsville area to keep women safe and ensure that guests can enjoy a relaxed evening where they are. feel safe and welcome. ”

There was strong support at the roundtable to continue working collaboratively to shape stronger responses to women’s safety and take practical and meaningful steps to create real change in the industry.
