The 'Idle Poor' - A Shift in Perception of Disability
Having spoken to a number of disabled people, I'm often surprised by the level of 'shock' or 'horror' displayed by the disabled themselves as regarding the current negative political and media campaign waged against them regarding welfare benefits. Very few would have predicted that they would become one of the chief targets for economic reform within the UK, as well as one of the chief scapegoats for Britain's national debt problems, problems generated after the economic global crisis of 2008. But should we really be that surprised by this turn of events? (Source: Disabled World)

Becoming healthier may motivate your partner to join in
Conclusion This cohort study has found that individuals with unhealthy behaviours such as smoking, being inactive or being overweight are most likely to change these behaviours if their unhealthy partner also changes these behaviours. Having a partner who has consistently healthy behaviours was also associated with a greater likelihood of change in smoking and activity compared to a consistently unhealthy partner, but less so than having a partner who changed behaviour. There were some limitations to the study, including that: The study took into account some confounders, such as age and some health conditions, but oth...

How therapy and exercise 'may help some with CFS'
Conclusion This study has tried to pick apart how cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and graduated exercise therapy (GET) affected fatigue and physical function in the PACE randomised controlled trial (RCT). Its findings suggest this could partly be a result of CBT and GET reducing fear avoidance beliefs, such as the fear that exercise would make symptoms worse. But these treatments were less effective in cases where fear avoidance beliefs remained. The researchers also identified other factors (mediators) that seemed to be playing a role, such as GET increasing the maximum distance an individual could walk in ...

In one I live on Mars, with the inherent complexities, perils and lack of creature comforts that the first colonists will encounter there.

Police and Fire Pension Fund board sends reform package back to City Council

The final status of the pension reform package, which calls for a mix of surging money into the pension fund and cutting benefits, rests with the board, who can either reject it altogether, elect to modify it or accept it.

Senate Confirms Vivek Murthy As Surgeon General Over NRA Opposition
WASHINGTON -- In a rare show of defiance of the National Rifle Association, the Senate on Monday confirmed Dr. Vivek Murthy to serve as surgeon general of the United States. Murthy's nomination had been stalled for nearly a year due to comments he made in support of stricter gun laws. Murthy is a Harvard- and Yale-educated physician, and has identified obesity and chronic disease as areas of focus for his tenure. He will be the first Indian American to hold the position. The Senate voted, 51-43, to confirm Murthy for the nation's top public health post, which has been vacant since July 2013. Sen. Mark Kirk (Ill.) was t...

Estes argues that the decision to delay state contributions to the underfunded Kansas Public Employee Retirement System, just exacerbates the current $9.77 billion shortfall in the system that provides retirement pensions for the state's teachers, police, firefighters, judges and others.

The Price of Staying Alive For the Next 3 Hours
How much do you reckon you’d pay not to be dead three hours from now? That probably depends. If you’re 25 and healthy, a whole lot. If you’re 95 and sickly, maybe not so much. But for people in one part of the world—the former East Germany—the cost has been figured out, and it’s surprisingly cheap: three hours of life will set you back (or your government, really) just one euro, or a little below a buck-thirty at current exchange rates. That’s the conclusion of a new study out of Germany’s Max Planck Institute, and it says a lot about the power of a little bit of money now to...

Weight discrimination study fuels debate
Conclusion This analysis of data collected as part of the large English Longitudinal Study of Ageing finds that people who reported experiencing discrimination as a result of their weight had a small gain in BMI and waist circumference over the study years, while those who didn’t had a small loss. There are a few important limitations to bear in mind. Most importantly, this study could not determine whether the weight changes or the discrimination came first. And, finding an association between two factors does not prove that one has directly caused the other. The relationship between the two may be influenced by va...
