Let’s say one day you wake up with a taste for ice cream: What flavor would you pick? But this post is about exercise not ice cream: what is your prefered exercise? calisthenics, jogging, brisk walking?
I enjoy a variety of exercises and I do them daily now:
- 28 flights of stairs (ascending only, to protect my knees): I do this in 8 minutes, wearing my 2.5 lb ankle weights (which by the way I wear all the day long). This get my metabolism going, for about 2 hours.
- One hour brisk walking, and jogging for 5-6 miles in the evening (a great way to keep my body in shape, maintain and increase endurance and oxygenation (each other day I wear my 30 lb gym weights vest, and the 2.5lb ankle weights, for strength and stamina (I keep a 4-4.5 miles per hour cadence)
- Two-three days (weekends) are reserved for the daily six miles, and a 20 miles cycling on my heavy bicycle (40 lb) in addition to 1-1.5 hours of brisk walking and jogging. I miss the stairs over the weekend though.
- Before and after exercising I warm up to allow my body to stretch for 5 minutes.
You too can start exercising. Nothing big, it is all a one step at a time, and the first step is the most important and for most of us the hardest to make.
- Good luck: Get outside, walk a little, the time to start is now!

Somewhere in Time is a 1980 romantic science fiction tragedy film directed by Jeannot Szwarc. It is a film adaptation of the 1975 novel Bid Time Return by Richard Matheson, who also wrote the screenplay. The film stars Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, Christopher Plummer, Teresa Wright, and Bill Erwin.
Reeve plays Richard Collier, a playwright who becomes smitten by a photograph of a young woman at the Grand Hotel. Through self-hypnosis, he travels back in time to the year 1912 to find love with actress Elise McKenna (portrayed by Seymour). But her manager William Fawcett Robinson (portrayed by Plummer) fears that romance will derail her career and resolves to stop him.
The film is known for its musical score composed by John Barry. The eighteenth variation of Sergei Rachmaninoff‘s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini also runs throughout the film.

The Antiballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty of 1972 limited the number of defensive antiballistic missile systems allowed to the US and USSR. Effective ABM systems had been sought since the Cold War, when the nuclear arms race raised the specter of complete destruction by unstoppable ballistic missiles. In the West, the treaty was seen as a deterrent to nuclear war, since neither side would be able to fully protect against nuclear attack. Why then did the US withdraw from the treaty in 2002?

Remedy to this HUMAN shortcoming: Let’s agree to disagree without being disagreable…Or else! (also: not every disagreement is bad enough to war (war: an extreme ideologico-economical incongruence that can be appeased only by eliminating the incongruence) over it anyway, or it shouldn’t… You know?)
