People who dance are easy to spot, even offstage. Theyre very aware of their bodys position in space, and they move almost like cats, says Marie-Louise Bird, a Pilates researcher and post-doctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia. But most of us are more like puppy dogs, moving without much attention paid to our posture. Luckily, the puppy dogs among us don't have to go to dance school to get better body awareness. They can just do Pilates. Ever since Joseph Pilates founded his studio in New York City about a century ago, the training method has focused on strengthening abdominal and trunk musclescalled the corethrough hundreds of very specific movements. The first Pilates clients were ballet dancers looking for a way to improve their posture and control their movements.

Candice Wiggins didnt hold back on the WNBA in a jaw-dropping new interview . The basketball player, 30, told The San Diego Tribune that shed been planning to continue playing for an additional two seasons before opting to retire from professional sports in 2016 after eight seasons. Among the factors that influenced her decision, she said, was that shed been subjected to aggressive behavior from her teammates... for not being gay. I didnt like the culture inside the WNBA, and without revealing too much, it was toxic for me, Wiggins, who played for the Minnesota Lynx , Tulsa Shock , Los Angeles Sparks and New York Liberty , said. Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge. I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday condemned the recent "horrible" anti-Semitic threats that have been targeting the Jewish community. Trump spoke at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. after touring the latest Smithsonian building. "This tour was a meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry, intolerance, and hatred in all of its very ugly forms," Trump said . "The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil." On Monday, Jewish community centers across the country received a fourth wave of bomb threats so far this year. While no one was reportedly hurt or injured, 11 centers had to be evacuated on President's Day, bringing the total threats against Jewish community centers this year to at least 69 at 54 centers in 27 states, the New York Daily News reported .

And he's not alone. In the last couple of months a facility in Utah is now under a 30-year exclusion, and a New York physician is now excluded from Medicare for five years. These penalties and exclusions not only affect those providers that are intentionally fraudulent. Even an innocent mistake can land you in serious legal and financial hot water.

Tomorrow, a leading healthcare attorney will walk you through the new exclusionary rules that just took effect so that you can really understand what will keep you off of the OIG's hit list. Here are just a few of the practical, easy-to-implement tactics you'll receive by attending this 60-minute online training: Determine specifically who you should screen (individuals and entities) and how often Avoid being placed on the list for lack of compliance if there is a match on your team Find out what other legal actions can have collateral damage resulting in exclusion Learn how to get reinstated onto Medicare after an exclusion period expires Head off the top flags that lead to exclusions Master documentation requirements making your files audit-proof And so much more.

By Jack Stubbs MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia's combative ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, died suddenly in New York on Monday after being taken ill at work, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. The ministry gave no details on the circumstances of his death but offered condolences to his relatives and said the diplomat had died one day before his 65th birthday. It declined to comment on reports that Churkin had been taken to a hospital shortly before his death. A U.S. government official, who was not authorized to speak publicly on the case, said that Churkin had died of an apparent heart attack. A federal law enforcement official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said that there appeared to be nothing unusual about the ambassador's death. The New York Post quoted unnamed sources as saying Churkin had been rushed to a Manhattan hospital from the Russian mission to the United Nations after falling ill with a cardiac condition.
