Whole body vibration has been in the public eye for a few years now, but the endocrine society released a new study that suggests there are significant benefits to bone health.  A less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration (WBV) can mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of regular exercise in mice, according to a new study. WBV consists of a person sitting, standing or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform. When the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body, and muscles contract and relax multiple times during each second.

Snow shoveling adds to Heart Attack potential

Snow Shoveling

Winter storms and snow shoveling go hand in hand along with heart attacks.  According to studies as snowstorms strike, so do cardiac arrests.  The two factors responsible for these conditions include the lack of vitamin D causes unhealthy arties and veins allowing inflammation and improving their function. 

While cardio exercise, more specifically intense cardio exercise puts a strain on the heart, cold weather is an exacerbating factor that leads to an increase in heart related failures and fatalities during the winter season.   Cold weather causes the arteries to constrict, which then raises blood pressure and pulse rate.  And, consequently puts additional strain on the heart.

Trump - Kick Back King?

American Health Care

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

Is Donald Trump the kickback king?  First we have the new American Healthcare Bill that is so similar to Obamacare that republicans are calling it, RINO(Republican in Name Only) with the major difference being instead of the penalty being paid to the government its paid directly to the insurance company.  I’m sure if there was a seedy insurance company they would not have a problem providing some gratuity for the man that made that possible.   It’s obvious that something of that nature is in play, it only makes sense.

Trumps followers will lose Health Insurance Coverage under new Proposed bill

Health Care Bill

Scribe:  Samuel Otis

Email:  samuel@thethinkering.com

 

The new healthcare program initiated by the GOP to replace the Affordable Healthcare Act or Obamacare looks a lot like a dog with fleas.   In an apparent attempt to undermine Barack Obama’s presidential legacy at best the new health care act resembles a warmed over version of Obamacare with built in tax cuts for those who earn more than $200,000 annually. 

The new bill coined, the American Health Care Act even bites off the previous acts plan’s name. Well there is no crime borrowing information for those less imaginative minds. 

One of the primary differences between Obamacare and the new proposed bill, is the penalty with Obamacare was being paid to the government and under the new plan, the penalty will be paid to the insurance companies.  Is that constitutional?  Sounds like a kick back opportunity to me.

A new study suggests sex will get you ahead at work, but not the way you are probably thinking.   Swedish councilman Per-Erik Muskos, is taking advantage of the new information and is giving his employees an hour per week off – paid – to leave work and have sex. 

The study followed 159 married couples and suggested that sex is good for you.  When workers had sex at home they tended to be in a better mood the following day, which led to greater engagement at work leading to more job satisfaction.  The sex effect lasted up to 24 hours an occurred in both men and women regardless of overall marital satisfaction and amount of sleep. 

The study subjects were followed for two weeks.  The study was originally published in the Journal of Management.

Nasty Biden

Former vice president Joe Biden has offered his full and complete support as his dead son’s (Beau) wife hooks up with his younger brother(Hunter).   The former vp in the Obama administration is known for his authorship of his hardline stance against drug possession in the 1980’s that targeted African Americans while his was a lawmaker during the Clinton administration.  The legislation introduced the three strikes you’re out law, meaning offenders who got three felonies despite the circumstances would spend the rest of their lives in jail.  Apparently, his hardness ended there as the woman Beau was married at the time of his death due to a brain tumor is screwing his little brother.
