    Could cheerleading be the most progressive sport in terms of gender roles?  New research from the University of East Anglia indicates that the traditionally female-centered activity can help participants of both sexes challenge stereotypes about girls in sports.  The study, which was published in the journal Sport in Society: Cultures, Commerce, Media, Politics, tracked the growing popularity of cheerleading in the U.K. and focused on the members of four cheerleading teams.  “The participants in our study talked about flipping gender norms in cheerleading,” Dr. Amy Pressland, a co-author of the study, tells Yahoo Parenting.

  • 16/74   High School Quarterback’s Tragic Death Highlights Silent Danger of an Enlarged Spleen
    SPORTS TOPIC NEWS

    A spleen can become enlarged for many reasons, including genetic diseases, William Katkov, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., tells Yahoo Health.  Here’s why that’s a problem: A person may feel better and resume their normal activities, but their enlarged spleen is more susceptible to rupturing and may no longer be protected by their ribcage, leaving it incredibly vulnerable to injury.  “An enlarged spleen is at an increased risk for rupture or injury in the setting of normal trauma, like a football game, diving into a pool, or minor car accident,” Katkov says.  While an enlarged spleen can be asymptomatic, Katkov says a person can feel uncomfortable or have a feeling of fullness in their upper abdomen on the left side.

    The plague of “fake news” may be news to Facebook (FB), but it’s a familiar foe to a small non-profit in Washington that’s trying to use mobile apps, big data and social media to promote peace and accountability in places like Iraq, Kenya and Mexico where those technologies have often been abused to spread lies and hate.  The PeaceTech Lab aims to develop “technology that can be applied to tackle the triggers of violence,” president and CEO Sheldon Himelfarb said in an interview at the lab’s Washington headquarters at the U.S. Institute of Peace.

  • 50/74   No deal Brexit could ‘weaken’ UK and EU, top US intel chief warns
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    America’s most senior intelligence chief warned on Tuesday that a no deal Brexit could “substantially weaken” the United Kingdom and the European Union.  Dan Coats, the US director of national intelligence, warned that there would be “economic disruption” if London and Brussels fail to reach an agreement over the terms of departure.  Mr Coats expressed the concerns in prepared remarks to the Senate Intelligence Committee as he and five other intelligence chiefs discussed “worldwide threats”.  “In Europe, political, economic and social trends will increase political uncertainty and complicate efforts to push back against some autocratic tendencies,” Mr Coats said.  “Meanwhile, the possibility of a no deal Brexit, in which the UK exits the EU without an agreement, remains. This would cause economic disruptions that could substantially weaken the UK and Europe.” Mr Coats is a former Republican senator who serves in Donald Trump’s cabinet. He was formerly  US ambassador to Germany under George W Bush.  The role he holds was created after the September 11 2001 attacks and oversees the work of America’s 17 intelligence agencies.  Mr Coats’s warning is starker than most public comments on Brexit from Trump administration figures, who tend to stress that the decision is one for the UK Parliament.  Mr Trump, the US president, has done little to hide his criticism of Theresa May’s Brexit deal, which was voted down by MPs earlier this month. He has repeatedly questioned whether the agreement, which keeps Britain closely aligned to Brussels in terms of trading goods, limits the ability for a major UK-US free trade deal after Brexit.  The US president is yet to comment on the current impasse in Parliament since Mrs May’s withdrawal agreement was voted down by the House of Commons.  Last week a senior official at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence – Mr Coats’s department – told this newspaper that the UK-US intelligence sharing relationship was not expected to be impacted by Brexit.

    By Monday night, firefighters in the state of Minas Gerais had confirmed that 65 people were killed by Friday's disaster, when a burst tailings dam sent a torrent of sludge into the miner's offices and the town of Brumadinho.

  • 57/74   15-minute workouts may reverse type 2 diabetes in just six weeks
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    Fifteen-minute workouts could reverse diabetes in just six weeks, new research suggests. A trial of overweight men found that short, intense resistance training sessions three times a week significantly boosted their ability to manage insulin. Previous research has indicated that 45-minute workouts could have this effect, but the new study has been greeted with particular excitement as experts believe type 2 diabetes patients will be more likely to commit to shorter sessions. It is estimated that by 2025 there will be five million people with a diabetes diagnosis in the UK, 90 per cent of whom will have type 2, which is related to lifestyle. Despite rates getting worse, public awareness that many people can delay or even reverse their condition through lifestyle changes is improving, thanks in part to high-profile examples such as Labour MP Tom Watson,  who is free of the disease after losing seven stone. Published in the journal Experimental Physiology, researchers from the University of Glasgow recruited ten men who were overweight, defined as having a body mass index of 25 to 29. In each training session they were required to undertake a single set of nine standard resistance exercises such as leg presses and bicep curls at 80 per cent of their maximum lift capability until they were no longer able to lift any more. Dan Roberts' 15 minute workout for at work (or home) Measurements revealed that insulin sensitivity increased by 16 per cent following the exercise regimen. Meanwhile muscle size and strength, were measurably increased after only two weeks of training. Insulin sensitivity describes how sensitive the body is to the effects of the hormone, which is responsible for the uptake of sugars from blood to tissues for storage or to use as energy. When insulin sensitivity decreases, as in the case of type 2 diabetes, blood sugars rise, which in the short-term can lead to feelings of fatigue, but over time is related to complications including heart disease and stroke. While the participants in the new trial were not themselves suffering from diabetes, the research team believe the results would be applicable to patients with the condition because 90 per cent of type 2 diabetics are overweight or obese. The new study is the first to demonstrate that such simple exercise, with a weekly time commitment of less than one hour, can increase insulin sensitivity in overweight people. Its authors said the format adopted by their volunteers should “appeal to many”. “Importantly, the exercise protocol in present study where participants performed a single set to volitional failure [too tired to continue] for each exercise, with the sessions lasting 15 to 20 minutes, involved a much smaller time-commitment than the majority of previous resistance training interventions which generally involved multiple [two to four] sets of exercise for each muscle group,” they wrote. The midlife HIIT rules: how to use high intensity workouts without harming your body This follows research by Loughborough University published last August which found that taking hot baths can be more effective than cardiovascular exercise for lowering blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. The trial found that just one bath could reduce peak blood sugar levels by 10 per cent ore than an hour cycling. Stuart Gray, who led the Glasgow group, said: "On top of these results, we know that the gym is not for everyone. Therefore, we also need to see if we can get people doing similar exercises at home without gym equipment, to achieve similarly beneficial effects."

    The sweeping U.S. sanctions on oil firm PDVSA, announced on Monday, means the state-run company may not be able to fulfill contracts with North American buyers, the government of President Nicolas Maduro said.  Aimed at driving Maduro from power, the sanctions were the strongest measures yet against the 56-year-old former union leader, who has overseen economic collapse and an exodus of millions of Venezuelans in recent years.  The measures triggered higher global oil prices, angry responses from China and Russia and the first serious moves against Guaido since he challenged Maduro's claim on the presidency last week.
