Food stockpiling for emergency use

Disasters often strike without warning or with little warning. Stocking up the right non-perishable food items can help you weather the storm.

Fuelling your body during an emergency is different from your everyday diet. Your body will use more energy, so you should eat high-energy, high protein foods. In addition, nutritious foods will help to maintain good health.

The Benefits Of Exercise And Social Aspects

It is a well-known fact that exercise is beneficial for our health and well-being. It also lowers blood pressure, improves our sleep and leads to better glycemic control.

New research on exercise reveals that group exercising may have other positive effects that were overlooked before. Our thoughts and attitudes are influenced by the people around us, and when we get to know people who exercise regularly, we start to view the activity as desirable, doable and appealing.

Group exercise may be even better for you than solo workouts – here's why

Origins of basketball
  • In 1891, James Naismith, a physical education teacher, created a new game to keep his students engaged during the winter months. The game had to be playable indoors and accommodate several players at once. It needed to provide exercise without a chance for more severe injuries.
  • Two peach baskets nailed to the lower rail of the gymnasium balcony served as goals. The students would play on teams to try and get a ball into their team's basket. The first game was a complete brawl.
  • During the first game, the students were tackling, kicking and punching. One boy was knocked out, some had black eyes, and one had a dislocated shoulder. Afterwards, they nagged Naismith to let them play again.
  • He created some rules and continued to modify them into 13 rules - known as the original 13 rules. Some of the original rules are still part of the modern game today.

Here's the history of basketball—from peach baskets in Springfield to global phenomenon

Many people eat three meals a day. But we don't have to eat this way.

Contagious yawning

Whenever someone yawns near you, you may find it near impossible not to yawn.

New studies found the reason we battle to stop a yawn appears to reside in the brain area that's responsible for motor function. The urge to yawn when you see someone else doing it is known as echophenomenon - the automatic imitation of another person. Other types of echophenomena include echolalia - imitation of words, and echopraxia - imitations of actions.

Here's Why Yawns Are So Contagious
