MOTIVATE YOURSELF So, coming a - are you from the fitness goals set in January? For those that have met them- kudos, and keep it up. But for those who haven’t- don’t fret, we’ve all been there, and there’s still time. Unless injury has kept you off your fitness game, it’s usually a challenge of motivation. The problem is not complicated: A lot of days, exercise is drudgery. Now, the conventional wisdom has always been that we all just need to move past that: Suck it up! No pain, no gain! Blah, blah, blah. But an emerging body of research suggests that the hard-ass approach to exercise is itself an exercise in futility. If we want to be successful, the researchers suggest, we need to stop forcing ourselves to do things we…

SCRATCHING AROUND A MOZZIE BITE – DOES IT REALLY HELP? – TOM Scratching directly on a bite only makes it itch more – which is absolutely true. But scratching around it is also a bad idea. Doing that can still lead to itch-inducing inflammation and infection (like MSRA a.k.a. methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria that loves to infect the skin), says Adam Friedman, M.D., a professor of dermatology at George Washington University. (Same goes for pressing a fingernail into the bite.)What’s more, scratching anywhere could trigger neurochemical shifts that may heighten the brain’s perception of itch, suggests research on rodents. Grab ice instead; icing a bite or rash for five to 10 minutes will relieve the itch by overwhelming the same nerves responsible for said itch, Friedman says I LOVE A COLD…

Not if you’re consistent. If you always turn in at 2:00 A.M. and rise at 10:00 A.M., you’re good. Or 8:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M., also good. But if your bedtimes and wake-up times vary wildly, you may be setting yourself up for sleep problems, says Rodney Radtke, M.D., a neurologist specializing in sleep medicine at Duke Health. That’s because irregular sleep patterns can mess with your body clock over time, making it harder to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up when you want to. Late night? Be sure to get up at your usual time, says Dr. Radtke: “That sets your clock.”…

WILL I GET IN TROUBLE IF SOMEONE WALKED INTO ME WHILE I WAS TRAVELLING WITHIN THE SPEED LIMIT ON MY E-SCOOTER? Yes, it is possible to get into trouble even if you follow the speed limit. Under the law, (the Active Mobility Act 2017) there are other factors which may result in an e-scooter driver being responsible for causing injury to a pedestrian. These include, amongst others, failing to immediately stop your e-scooter when the accident occurs, failing to give immediate assistance to the victim, and/or not giving one’s personal particulars to the victim.

“I COULDN T BELIEVE PEOPLE WOULD PAY ME FOR ACT- I WAS ENJOYING IT SO MUCH!” Some background- despite a long list of film and TV show credits on his IMDB page, the truth is Byron’s destiny wasn’t supposed to be an actor. His father was a dentist, his mother a nurse, his elder brother a doctor, and his second brother went to business school. Pretty much the stereotypical Asian success story- and Byron was meant to join the club as the family lawyer. He played the role well at the start, going to law school and managing to snag a great internship at a law firm in Hong Kong. But that’s when the story began to change, he reveals to Men’s Health. “Usually at the end of the internship, my boss would…
