It won't surprise anyone familiar with the classic hundred exercisea grueling Pilates pose performed for 100 beatsthat the practice also does something special to the stomach. Pilates seems to activate the deeper abdominal muscles more than conventional gym exercises, says Duncan Critchley, a lecturer and exercise researcher at Kings College London. Research from Spain shows Pilates also eliminates asymmetries in the abdominal muscles the line the sides of your torso. It's probably not the best workout for those looking for a vigorous sweat, says Wells. Newer forms of the practice use machines to increase resistance and even aerobic intensityreformer Pilates and jumpboard Pilates are two examplesbut they're less studied than the traditional forms of the exercise. Look around online and you'll find plenty of anecdotal evidence that Pilates can help people lose weight or, even more likely, lose inches, but Gibson says her findings were mixed when it came to Pilatess ability to reduce waist circumference.

The family of Mrs Bonito replaced it with another less expensive statue because they were convinced thieves would strike again. Her daughter, Anna Jacks, realised they had when she visited the grave on February 6 to find a new...

The Apple Watch Series 2 is pretty good, but the data is locked in and very basic. The Nike+ app and Watch 2 variant improved this by adding the ability to pull that data out, but the quality of that data was too poor to trust. And the less said about the NewBalance model, the better. I'm currently testing this watch, which is supposed to be the Strava-powered running smartwatch around, and it's just unable to find GPS, hold GPS, read my heart rate or do anything vaguely trustworthy over any distance. Compare that with a run-of-the-mill Garmin or TomTom device that costs a third of the price of the smartwatch brigade yet still provides more quality data at the end right to your favourite running platform, and you can see that the smartwatch still has a long way to go to become attractive to the hobbyist runner or cyclist. These smartwatches also last a day or two at best before needing a charge, where the top models from the dedicated fitness brands are efficient enough to last up to a week on a single juicing.

In addition to losing, the Lakers haven't been able to find a marketable superstar to Kobe Bryant . Per Sam Amick of USA Today , this was a big problem for Jeanie Buss, who considered the inability to add Demarcus Cousins a last straw. While Los Angeles has young talent to build around between Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and D'Angelo Russell, the challenge for Johnson will be to turn this squad into a contender.

Like many young fathers, Abraham Poincheval has very little time to himself to ponder life's big questions. So on Wednesday the French artist will be entombed for a week inside a 12-tonne limestone boulder in a modern art museum in Paris. "I think of it as an inner journey to find out what the world is," said Poincheval, who has hollowed out a hole in the rock just big enough for himself to fit inside. If he survives his time as the rock's "beating heart", the 44-year-old will then sit on a dozen eggs until they hatch. "It is the first time I will have worked with living things," the artist told AFP. Poincheval is no stranger to often bizarre and hair-raising performances. He once spent a fortnight inside a stuffed bear, was buried under a rock for eight days and navigated France's Rhone river inside a giant corked bottle. He has also crossed the Alps in a barrel and last year spent a week on top of a 20-metre (65-foot) pole outside a Paris train station like the stylite saints of the early Christian church.

People’s interest in a body seems tied to whether or not it has the name planet' labelled on it. I want to set straight in the mind of the public what a planet is. The IAU definition doesnt jive with my intuition and I find it doesnt jive with other people‘s intuition. The study was prepared for the upcoming 48th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference . This annual conference which will be taking place this year from March 20th-24th at the Universities Space Research Association in Houston, Texas will involve specialists from all over the worlds coming together to share the latest research findings in planetary science. Here, Runyon and his colleagues hope to present it as part of the Education and Public Engagement Event. It is his hope that through an oversized poster, which is a common education tool at Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, they can show how this new definition will facilitate the study of the Solar System's many bodies in a way that is more intuitive and inclusive.
