Most of us don’t put much thought into it, but how we furnish, decorate and organize our office space can directly impact how we feel every day. We’re often told what to remove from our desks to help us work smarter (see ya, clutter and moldy coffee cups), but we rarely talk about what to “add in” to make our work spaces real winners. Enter TODAY’s Al Roker, who gave us the inside scoop on the stuff that makes him happier, healthier and more productive on the job.

Ask Well: Is Lying Down as Bad for You as Sitting?

Question:

The studies about the deleterious effects of sitting make me wonder if this is strictly related to the sitting posture (knees bent, back straight, feet on floor), or is it the inactivity that’s the culprit? Is lying in bed as bad as sitting and reading?

As opioid crisis intensifies, one Md. school system looks at a ‘recovery’ school

Leave a comment

Kevin Burnes thinks his school saved his life. He arrived there at 14 years old, just out of rehab, and says it was exactly what he needed: a place where kids with drug and alcohol problems could stay on a path of recovery as they worked toward high school graduation.

“I have no question that it changed the course of everything I was doing,” said Burnes, now a music teacher and musician.

The school that made the difference was Phoenix, in Montgomery County, believed to have been the first of its kind in the country. It opened in 1979 amid concerns about student drug use and continued for decades before fizzling to an end four years ago at a time of flux for alternative programs.

Now the idea may be making a comeback, with school leaders looking into the possibility of a new “recovery” school program as the nation’s opioid epidemic draws wide attention. While some in Montgomery pose questions about cost and effectiveness, others say the program worked well years ago and could help those who struggle with addiction today.

The invention of heterosexuality

Leave a comment

The 1901 Dorland’s Medical Dictionary defined heterosexuality as an “abnormal or perverted appetite toward the opposite sex.” More than two decades later, in 1923, Merriam Webster’s dictionary similarly defined it as “morbid sexual passion for one of the opposite sex.” It wasn’t until 1934 that heterosexuality was graced with the meaning we’re familiar with today: “manifestation of sexual passion for one of the opposite sex; normal sexuality.”

Whenever I tell this to people, they respond with dramatic incredulity. That can’t be right! Well, it certainly doesn’t feel right. It feels as if heterosexuality has always “just been there.”

A few years ago, there began circulating a “man on the street” video, in which the creator asked people if they thought homosexuals were born with their sexual orientations. Responses were varied, with most saying something like, “It’s a combination of nature and nurture.” The interviewer then asked a follow-up question, which was crucial to the experiment: “When did you choose to be straight?” Most were taken back, confessing, rather sheepishly, never to have thought about it. Feeling that their prejudices had been exposed, they ended up swiftly conceding the videographer’s obvious point: gay people were born gay just like straight people were born straight.

If You Have to Fall on Ice, Here’s How Not to Hurt Yourself

We’ve all been there — the moment when we walk too fast on an icy day and lose our balance and know that we are going down. Hard.
.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a magical trick that we can give you never to fall again. Or to fall gracefully.

But if you are going to fall, you might as well commit to it and make it safe.

We talked to Femi Olagoke, a professional stunt performer, who told us some of his best tips for falling safely.

Are You Doing Push-Ups Right? Here’s How to Do It Better

Leave a comment

.

Push-ups are an amazing exercise because they work your whole body. They work the chest muscles and the core muscles at the same time, so a lot of the benefits you get from planks, you get from push-ups.

Push-ups are great for people of any age and fitness level, because they can be modified and changed in difficulty, so you can do easy push-ups on your knees, medium difficult traditional push-ups and very difficult plyometric clapping or one-legged push-ups, all with the same exercise.

But it’s also easy to get them wrong — in the IronStrength classes I teach, I see people with their hands too close together, their bodies sagging and yet getting nowhere close the ground.

Doctor Aims to Perform Head Transplant in 2017, Experts Remain Skeptical

Leave a comment

.

A team of researchers led by an Italian surgeon say they are planning to perform the first human head transplant in 2017 and have even recruited a volunteer, but experts remain skeptical of the experimental procedure.

Dr. Sergio Canavero, director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, Turin, Italy, has proposed in two published medical articles that a head transplant is possible, thanks to new technology.

The technology allows for the body to be cooled during surgery and there are new tools that create a cleaner cut on the spinal cord and machines that allow people to be on bypass during surgery.

The team wants to go through with the procedure in December 2017, according to new reports on AFP and Central European News. One surgeon reportedly involved in the procedure, Dr. Ren Xiaoping, said the team will go through with the surgery only if future research supports their plan.
