    (CNN) — It has long been understood that being physically active is good for you, particularly when it comes to preventing things like heart attacks and strokes. Physical exercise may be even more important for the prevention of cardiovascular disease than previously known — and the more activity the better, a new large study led by the University of Oxford has suggested. To measure physical activity, researchers in the United Kingdom got 90,211 individuals to wear an accelerometer (a small, lightweight motion sensor) on their wrist over a seven-day period between 2013 and 2015. The researchers tracked the participants’ health for an average of five years. Subscribe to CNN’s Fitness, But Better newsletter: Get back in the groove.

    TEN minutes of moderate-to-vigorous exercise a day in mid-life helps protect the brain 25 years later, research reveals. Walking briskly, running or cycling for 75 minutes a week was found to be “important for promoting brain health and preserving the actual structure of your brain”. Getty - Contributor 1 Walking briskly, running or cycling for 75 minutes a week was found to be ‘important for promoting brain health’ The study involved more than 1,600 people, with an average age of 53, who had five checks over a quarter of a century. Researchers, from Columbia University Irving Medical ­Centre in New York, used scans to measure grey and white brain matter and lesions, or areas of injury or disease. People who reported no physical activity in midlife had a 47 per cent greater risk of developing brain lesions — small areas of damage. Higher activity levels were associated with more...
    Los Angeles’ first significant storm of the season arrived overnight, bringing with it intense lightning, rolling thunder and the increased potential for road hazards and debris flows. The storm pummeled Southern California, dropping as much as 12 inches of snow in high-elevation mountain areas and half an inch of rain in downtown L.A. before dawn, according to the National Weather Service. It is expected to continue throughout Monday, with showers and isolated thunderstorms dousing the region off and on until the late afternoon, forecasters said. Rainfall could peak at rates of as much as half an inch per hour, and small hail and isolated water spouts are possible. The storm also carried in a cold front from the Northwest, said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. High temperatures Monday will barely touch 60 degrees. “Everybody saw that, or they were awakened in the middle of...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci’s children say they won’t spent Thanksgiving with him this year due to coronavirus concerns. The nation’s top infectious disease expert Fauci revealed Tuesday this year’s holidays will look different and his whole family won’t be together. 'I have three daughters in three disparate parts of the country….who we don’t see very often. We would love for them to come home for Thanksgiving,' he said during a webinar hosted by American University’s Kennedy Political Union on Tuesday. His daughters, who range in age from 28 to 34, told their 79-year-old father they didn’t want to take a risk and travel to their parents for fear they could catch COVID-19 and infect them. Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed Tuesday that his three adult daughters won't spend Thanksgiving with him and his wife for fear of potentially catching COVID-19 and infecting them 'Dad, you know you’re a young vigorous...
    After the president of a Latino civil rights group reported that the Biden campaign has not sufficiently reached out to Hispanic voters, the Democratic National Committee's communications director Xochitl Hinojosa said on Monday that the 2020 presidential hopeful has indeed made a tremendous effort. “We’ll continue to ask for their votes and I respectfully disagree because I think that we are doing that currently,” Hinojosa told “America’s Newsroom.” “You see [the effort], especially in a place like Florida, where we have expanded our team," Hinojosa said. "One thing that is significant is when the Biden [campaign] made their general election buy, they invested in not only Spanish language media, but, a lot of Latinos also watch TV in English. My parents are Latino and they are watching news shows like yours today and others." REPUBLICAN GROUP LAUNCHES MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR FLORIDA AD BLITZ TO BOOST BIDEN Furthermore, Hinojosa said that Latinos “understand”...
    One of the tropical disturbances in the Atlantic is showing signs of life on Wednesday as the 2020 hurricane season appears ready to kick into high gear in the next couple of days. The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami said Wednesday morning it's now tracking three tropical waves in the Atlantic basin that have the potential for development, including two labeled "high" with a greater than 60% chance. "The disturbance with the greatest chance for development in the next couple of days is the one approaching the Leeward Islands," the NHC said. ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON: WHERE DO TROPICAL STORMS FORM IN AUGUST? According to the NHC, the first disturbance located about 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles will likely develop into a depression or tropical storm sometime in the next day or two. Forecasters put the formation chance at 90% and said the system continues to produce a "concentrated area of showers and...
    All the time a personality! Ryan Reynolds wrote a hilarious out-of-office message referencing his spouse, Blake Vigorous, and different superstar pals after promoting his liquor firm. Bloomberg reported on Monday, August 17, that Diageo acquired Aviation American Gin, which the 43-year-old actor co-owns, and different Davos Manufacturers liquors for a whopping $610 million. After the information broke, Reynolds wrote a snarky e-mail noting that whereas he’s “at the moment out of the workplace,” he “will nonetheless be very arduous at work promoting Aviation Gin. For fairly a very long time, it appears.” “In associated information, I simply discovered what an ‘earn out’ is… And I’d prefer to take this chance to apologize to everybody I advised to go f–ok themselves within the final 24 hours,” he continued. “My attorneys simply defined how lengthy it takes to realize an ‘earn out’… so… seems I’m not as George Clooney as I...
    People feel that they’ve upped their exercise regime only when they do more vigorous, not moderate, physical activity, according to a German study published recently in the journal Frontiers in Psychology. In fact, after adding moderate-level physical activity to their daily lives, people tend to think they haven’t made a positive behavior change at all, the study found. This is a worrisome finding. If people see vigorous exercise as the only way to bring healthful physical activity into their lives, they may become too discouraged to do anything to increase their activity. Yet research has shown repeatedly that regular moderate-level physical activity has a beneficial effect on a long list of medical conditions, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression, dementia and several types of cancers. It also increases the chances of a longer life. The current U.S. physical activity guidelines recommend that most adults engage in at least...
    As an active-duty Pacific Command war planner in the mid-1990s, then-Army Lt. Col. Mark Esper watched the rise of China. Now, as secretary of defense, he has a chance to do something about it. “China’s been on this path for some time now,” Esper said at an Aspen Security Forum virtual discussion Wednesday. “It’s time that we woke up and addressed it, that we competed much more vigorously with China.” Esper outlined an across-the-board reorientation of the Department of Defense from education to shifting priorities at global combatant commands, all with the goal to counter China’s influence and align efforts with the National Defense Strategy great power competition. The effort has included things such as ordering 50% of the National Defense University curriculum to focus on China to help senior-level officers understand the rival’s political, military, and economic goals and values and the Chinese Communist Party’s organization. Esper is also...
