Simple Resistance Exercises Improve Overall Health and Reduce Death Risks

Simple Resistance Exercises Improve Overall Health and Reduce Death RisksWeight training turns out to be as important as aerobic activity for warding off diseaseBy Lydia Denworth I’ve always been unwilling to be pressed into bench-pressing. Lifting weights seemed the province of serious athletes looking to improve performance or men looking to bulk up. Instead I walk several miles every day and do yoga regularly. But although research into resistance and strength training is still catching up to that on aerobic exercise,…

In Search for the Origins of Antibiotic Resistance – Scientists Discover 18 Never-Before-Seen Species of Gut Microbes

Researchers have made progress against citrus greening disease by developing hybrid citrus trees that produce desirable orange-like fruit and resist the disease. Through genetic analysis, they’ve created tools for early flavor profile screening, marking a significant step in ensuring future hybrids combine disease tolerance with the essential sweet orange flavor.Antibiotic-resistant infection is projected to catch up to cancer as the leading cause of death by 2050, making understanding and limiting the spread of…

COIN Approaches Resistance As Bitcoin Breaks Above $60,000

After a 26% drop in January, Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN) stock has made an extraordinary comeback this month. Since the start of February 2024, the stock price has been up 55%. This also translates into a YTD surge of 14%. In this article, we will analyze the stock of the biggest crypto exchange in the US from the perspective of short and long-term timeframes. The primary reason behind the bullish price action of Coinbase shares is the ongoing uptrend in cryptocurrencies. The rally comes after a brutal bear…

Theatre of Violence review – questions of culpability as Lord’s Resistance Army killer comes to trial | Film

Dominic Ongwen was nine when he was abducted from his village in northern Uganda and conscripted as a child soldier by the notorious Lord’s Resistance Army rebel group led by Joseph Kony. As a boy, Ongwen was a victim, brutalised and brainwashed; in adulthood, he progressed up the ranks, becoming a feared LRA commander. This film follows his trial at the international criminal court, where he was convicted of 61 individual charges of murder, rape, sexual slavery, abduction and torture. Ongwen is the first former child…

Harvard Engineers Discover Method to 10x Rubber’s Resistance

By Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences February 21, 2024SEAS researchers have developed a multiscale approach that allows particle-reinforced rubber to bear high loads and resist crack growth over repeated use. Above, cracks grow in the left sample while the cracks in the right sample, made from the multiscale material, remain intact after 350,000 cycles.

Idles: Tangk review – a return to joy as an act of resistance | Idles

The pitch for Idles’ fifth album is very straightforward. “This is our album of beauty and power,” wrote frontman Joe Talbot on social media towards the end of last year. “All love songs.” Indeed, it’s so straightforward, you might question the value of announcing it at all: writing love songs is hardly a hitherto-unprecedented move in rock and pop history.But context is everything, and this is Idles we’re taking about: authors of I’m Scum, Rottweiler, White Privilege and Never Fight a Man With a Perm, they of the…

Unlocking Cancer’s Resistance Secrets With Genetic Barcodes

ReSisTrace is a groundbreaking method that tracks cancer cell resistance by using genetic barcodes, revealing how some cells evade treatment. This insight guides the development of drugs that can turn resistant cells back to a state where they can be effectively targeted by existing therapies. Credit: SciTechDaily.comBy genetically labeling cancer cells, ReSisTrace uncovers pre-existing resistant states, leading to targeted therapies that prevent treatment evasion, offering a new frontier in personalized cancer care.In…

Landscapes of Resistance review – an enigmatic meditation on a life marked by Auschwitz | Film

Much of this Serbian documentary uses a striking, mildly psychedelic technique: a super-slow dissolve between images that morph near-imperceptibly into the next. Cracks in rendered rural walls appear to shift and Balkan forest vegetation undergoes subtle mutations, as the film’s subject, nonagenarian Sofia Vujanovic, recalls her past in voiceover: one of Tito’s partisans, her wartime activities and subsequent deportation to Auschwitz. It’s as if an ineluctable force – history – is moving through the material world,…
