The slim individual gestures to his friend and says, “man, you really need to get in shape.” Offended, the big-boned friend retorts, “this is the only shape I come in.” Sometimes that joke ends with the fat one saying, “I am in shape! Round is a shape.” Social justice warriors applaud this type of behavior, insisting that body positivity involves loving all shapes and sizes and that NO word should be said on the potential health risks extreme body shapes could have. Truth be told though, being morbidly obese or excessively thin is not good for your health. A major part of the former is lifestyle. Modern life has adjusted the extent of how physical we are now. A majority of us work … [Read more...] about Physical preparedness is a way of life: Regular physical labor improves your health and your chances of survival

Julie Hinds Detroit Free Press Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Aug 8, 2018 There is no better advocate for improvisational comedy than Marc Evan Jackson, who's performing this week at the Detroit Improv Festival. "Well, improvisation is really the foundation of all success and all happiness. It's such an overwhelmingly positive and life-affirming and confidence-building and friend-creating thing," says Jackson, who has the calm, soothing voice of a public radio host, a job he actually had for a while at an NPR affiliate, WGVU-FM, in west Michigan. If you recognize Jackson, it's probably because the Second City Detroit alumnus has an IMDb list that seems to cover the past two decades of peak TV comedy. He's appeared on everything from "Reno 911!" to "Key & Peele" to "Modern Family" to "Parks and Recreation." Most recently, he's been juggling recurring roles on two of the smartest, funniest comedies around: NBC's life-after-death … [Read more...] about Improv is a way of life for Jackson, who’s at Detroit Improv Festival
By Jean Hopfensperger Star Tribune July 7, 2018 — 7:55pm La Salle, Minn. -- For 100 years, Lutherans in this farming community on the Minnesota prairie have come to one church to share life’s milestones. They have been baptized, confirmed and married at La Salle Lutheran. Their grandparents, parents and siblings lie in the church cemetery next door. But the old friends who gathered here early one recent Sunday never imagined that they would one day be marking the death of their own church. About the series This is the first in an occasional series about Christianity at a crossroads — a time of unprecedented decline in church membership and a changing future for the faith. When La Salle Lutheran locks its doors in August, it will become the latest casualty among fragile Minnesota churches either closing, merging or praying for a miracle. Steep drops in church attendance, aging congregations, and cultural shifts away from … [Read more...] about As churches close in Minnesota, a way of life fades

I thought I could not have heard this correctly – that’s a mind blowing £25,000 every minute, £14 billion every year! As I watched, it was quite upsetting to see the suffering this condition causes, and the health complications it inflicts on the patients. Much of this ill health, misery and cost to the country is directly linked to lifestyle choices, and in particular the foods that are eaten. It … [Read more...] about Nino Severino: Exploring the vegan way of life!

And yet nations are practicing an unsustainable way of life at the cost of burning up Earth’s resources, reported The Daily Mail. The study comes from Leeds University, where researchers boiled down the requirements for a “good life” into 11 items. Basic needs included minimum daily income of $1.90, a minimum lifespan of 65 years, and steady supplies of electricity and food. It also had social goals like employment, a supportive network of family & friends and true democracy. … [Read more...] about Living beyond our means: We are burning through the planet’s resources, living an unsustainable way of life
