Even a small amount of exercise may significantly lower your risk of getting heart disease, according to a new study conducted at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). A team led by Jacob Sattelmair, who did the research while a doctoral student at HSPH, found that as little as 2.5 hours of exercise a week—just 150 minutes—can cut heart disease risk by 14%. What’s more, even those who exercise less than that can decrease their risk.Some physical activity is better than none, and more is better,” Sattelmair told HealthDay. He added, “The biggest bang for your buck is at the lower ends of physical activity. If you went from none to 2.5 hours a week, the relative benefit is more than if you went from, say, 5 to 7.5 hours a week.”For the study, published online August 1, 2011 in the journal Circulation, Sattelmair and his co-authors—including senior author I-Min Lee, HSPH associate professor of epidemiology, and colleagues from Stanford University and the University of Texas School of Public Health—conducted a meta-analysis of 33 studies from the past 15 years that investigated the relationship between physical activity and heart disease prevention.

By Jerry MackeyFARLEY, Iowa (April 27) – The 2018 racing season got underway Friday night at the “Palace of Speed”, Farley Speedway in Farley, Iowa. A hearty crowd attended the opening night action on a very blustery chilly late April evening. Austin Moyer shot to the front early in the 20-lap IMCA Modified feature from his second row start. Moyer drove the Boyse race team 1M ride to a convincing win ahead of Zach Less and Joel Callahan. Austin Heacock drove his no. 22 Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod to the win in the 18-lap main event. Heacock held off the strong running Justin Becker in getting to the finish line first. Cory VanZante took third at the stripe. A solid field of IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars took the green flag in their 12 lap feature. Cole Mather advanced from the seventh starting position in scoring the win ahead of Scooter Dulin. Friday night, May 4 will be a very special night of racing as Farley Speedway will honor Harry Bauer, father of SportMod driver Troy Bauer. The Harry Bauer Memorial will get underway with hot laps at 7 p.m.
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error This is the fifth consecutive season the Clippers have made the playoffs. Jordan, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have been together in the previous four, J.J. Redick the previous two. To Griffin, that should mean something.“I think … for the most part, this being our fourth year, third year with however many guys you want to say, I think the reassurance that we’ve been here before and just the experience alone has helped us be in the right mindset going into the playoffs,” Griffin said. “Everybody kind of knows what to expect, everybody knows what to do. I think we’re confident.”He paused.“But at the same time, we’ve been in situations in the playoffs where things can go crazy pretty quickly,” Griffin said.Coach Doc Rivers was asked if he is anxious to see if his team learned from the 2015 craziness. It’s doubtful the Clippers will ever forget their humiliating experience in the 2015 playoffs. Up 19 points with 2:34 left in the third quarter of Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston, the Clippers collapsed and lost by 12 (119-107) at Staples Center.A win, and the Clippers would have been in the conference finals for the first time ever. Instead, they lost Game 7 at Houston. Hearts were broken.Center DeAndre Jordan hasn’t forgotten. When he was asked Saturday what he took from it, his eyes verified that.“We’ve got to finish every game, finish every series and be locked in throughout the entire playoffs,” said Jordan, whose team will open the 2016 postseason by playing host to Portland in Game 1 of their best-of-seven series Sunday night at 7:30 at Staples Center. “I don’t know if I’m anxious,” he said. “I’m anxious to get started, is what I am. I think this group has been waiting for the playoffs since Game 1 (of the regular season) and so now we get to start it tomorrow.” While it may be good for the Clippers to keep that 2015 bummer in the back of their minds, this is not the time to dwell on it too much because they have a new task at hand – getting past Portland for a probable second-round date with the defending champion Golden State Warriors.Rivers said the keys to victory are his team playing at its pace, not letting Portland dominate the boards and playing terrific defense. There was emphasis on the latter.“I think you’re a better team when you have defensive confidence over offensive confidence because I’ve always believed your offense at some point or another will let you down at some point in the game, or even the whole game,” Rivers said. “But if your defense stays strong, you still have a chance to win the game.”The Clippers, who this season have a deeper bench, went 3-1 against the Trail Blazers this season. But Portland twice out-rebounded the Clippers 17-10 on the offensive glass.Even though the Clippers will have to try and put the brakes on Portland guards Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, the rebounding seems a focal point.“You obviously have to control their two main scorers, their guards,” Jordan said. “The game they beat us, they out-rebounded us. I think they did that in a couple of our wins (only one). We just have to be able to come out and limit those guys to one shot and really control the glass.”Speaking of Lillard and McCollum, they make up one of the league’s top guard tandems. Lillard averaged 25.1 points and 6.8 assists, McCollum averaged 20.7 points.“Those guys, Dame and C.J., had outstanding years and their team goes as they go,” Clippers point guard Chris Paul said.As for Griffin, how strong will he be after playing just five games since Dec. 25? He struggled his first two games back after missing the previous 45, was better the next three.“… For me, it was more getting in my rhythm and feeling better on the court, not feeling so out of sync,” Griffin said. “I felt much, much better and felt even better in practice yesterday. I’m encouraged by all of that.” If there is one early concern, it’s that Clippers shooting guard Redick is nursing a bruised left heel. He’s probable for Sunday. Redick shot 47.5 percent from 3-point range this season.
Adnan Catic, aka Felix Sturm, announced on his Facebook page after accusations that he was doped up during the match against Fedor Chudinov when he became world boxing champion by WBA version in middleweight division.“They found 3- Hydroxystanzolol Glucuronide! A substance used to pump muscles and gain weight. It took them more than 8 weeks to inform me that I was positive. Usually it takes no more than 2 to 3 weeks,” wrote Catic.He wondered how Lucas Brown, who fought against Ruslan Chagaev on the 6th of March, obtained his results after only two weeks, and it turned out that he was positive.“When it comes to me, the analysis lasted 4 weeks longer than usual, until it turned out that I was positive?! I obtained more than 100 doping tests of blood and urine samples in my career and all of them were negative. Many tests were unannounced,” wrote Catic.He said that he will do everything to prove his innocence.“When things calm down, you will get a detailed report on my website. When I get new information, I will publish them on this site,” said the world champion.(Source: vijesti.ba)

Meanwhile, Grayson Allen was quick to shoot the 3 in the second half. All but one of his 15 attempts from the floor were from 3. He went 3 for 14 from behind the arc and finished with 15 points.WHAT HE SAID (AND DIDN’T SAY)“Battle is one of the best players in the country…He’s a big-time player. I love Tyus,” Coach K said. “I love their team. I love their coach even more. He does such a great job with them.” But when asked about Kansas, Krzyzewski demurred, saying it was out of respect for Syracuse and his good buddy, Boeheim. Krzyzewski said he’ll talk KU Saturday.
