Being Cruised - Los Angeles Review of Books
Herein lies the complexity of cruising and being cruised. Cruising implies that we are just passing through, looking around, checking stuff out, window-shopping as it were. Will we or won’t we? Even if we are the ones doing the cruising, we might not ourselves fully know what we are looking for. Part of the pleasure comes out of the play of possibility, not always the follow through.

The strange alienation of being a Latina who loves hiking - Vox
I like the dirt, I like the aches, I like the freedom. I like the moment when I first unzip my tent and see the morning. I like the way my coffee tastes when I’m hovering over my mug and sitting on a log. I like the feeling of carrying everything I need for the week on my back.

Why Exercise Won't Make You Thin - TIME
"You cannot sit still all day long and then have 30 minutes of exercise without producing stress on the muscles," says Hans-Rudolf Berthoud, a neurobiologist at LSU's Pennington Biomedical Research Center who has studied nutrition for 20 years. "The muscles will ache, and you may not want to move after. But to burn calories, the muscle movements don't have to be extreme. It would be better to distribute the movements throughout the day."

Why Carrying an Extra 10 Pounds Might Not Hurt - WSJ.com
"Just because someone is slightly overweight doesn't mean they're not healthy," says Keri Gans, a registered dietician and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. Indeed, researchers and doctors are starting to understand that eating healthy foods and getting exercise can matter more than the number that appears when you step on the scale.

And if you have just a little extra jiggle in your jeans, that fat is likely less dangerous than the kind carried by the obese. The fat sported by those slightly overweight is most often subcutaneous, meaning it is surface fat that is often carried on hips, thighs and in the gluteus region. That fat is less harmful to health than visceral fat, which is characterized as fat that attaches to organs and often causes a protruded belly. Visceral fat can increase the chances of developing heart disease and diabetes.

Well - Divorce, It Seems, Can Make You Ill - NYTimes.com
In a series of experiments, scientists at Ohio State studied the relationship between marital strife and immune response, as measured by the time it takes for a wound to heal. The researchers recruited married couples who submitted to a small suction device that left eight tiny blisters on the arm. The couples then engaged in different types of discussions — sometimes positive and supportive, at other times focused on a topic of conflict.

After a marital conflict, the wounds took a full day longer to heal. Among couples who exhibited high levels of hostility, the wound healing took two days longer than with those who showed less animosity.

Praise Dance in Pentecostal Churches - Dance - New York Times
“I’m a visual person, and sometimes the physical moves me more than words. I respond better to the sensory experience. It’s good when you read it, but when you put it into action, it moves you even more. Dancing is so natural to so many people.”
