measurably less healthy Less than you might think According to new research from the University of Liverpool just two weeks without regular physical activity can lead to muscular and metabolic changes that could potentially increase ones risk of diabetes heart disease and possibly even premature death The new study is being presented this week at the European Congress on Obesity in Porto Portugal and has not yet been published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal The sample size is small and the findings are preliminary but the authors say they still highlight the dangerous consequences of sedentary behavioreven for a short period of time To investigate just how much a two-week break from physical activity might impact healthy young adults researchers recruited 28 men and women average age 25 who didnt work out regularly but walked about 10000 steps a day The participants had an average body mass index of 25 which is considered borderline between normal and overweight Healthcom: 15 Ways Exercise Makes You Look and Feel Younger Before the study began researchers measured the participants fat and muscle mass mitochondrial function (a measure of how well they regulate energy and recover from exercise) and physical fitness The participants were then asked to wear an activity tracker for two weeks and to reduce their daily activity by more than 80%to about 1500 steps a day They were also told not to alter their food intake over that time During those 14 days the time people spent doing moderate-to-vigorous activity dropped by an average of 125 minutes a dayfrom 161 minutes to just 36 Daily sedentary time increased by an average of 129 minutes Not surprisingly when the participants were re-checked after those two weeks they had gained weight and lost muscle mass Total body fat had also increasedespecially fat around the abdomen which is a major risk factor for developing chronic disease Healthcom: 11 Reasons Why You’re Not Losing Belly Fat The researchers also noticed other changes that were less expected Participants were unable to run for as long or at the same intensity as they could previously They also experienced a decrease in insulin sensitivity an increase in fat accumulated in the liver and an increase in triglycerides (one component of cholesterol) "We thought that we would see some subtle changes" says co-author Dan Cuthbertson reader and consultant for the University of Liverpools Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease "But when everything you measure gets worse in such a short time period including these important risk factors for heart disease and type 2 diabetes it is actually quite surprising" The results were also surprising because the study involved relatively young and healthy individuals says lead author and graduate student Kelly Bowden-Davies "If even those people were at risk you have to think about what that means for patients who are older or less healthy or who have other risk factors like a family history of disease" Healthcom: Could You Have Type 2 10 Diabetes Symptoms The authors acknowledge that the changes were small but they were statistically significant If a sedentary lifestyle was continued for longer than two weeks they say those changes would likely become more pronounced And although the study participants drastically cut back their daily activity Bowden-Davies points out that they were still going about their daily lives "They still went to work or university or looked after their children" she says "So this is a typical example of what some individuals are doing in society" Even for people who are regularly active its not hard to imagine how some lifestyle changelike a new job or a longer commutecould trigger this type of reduction in walking and other types of regular exercise the authors say But theres good news from the study too: When participants resumed their normal activity after their sedentary period their health measures returned to normal over the following two weeks "The effects were entirely reversibleso its fine if youre fit and well and you go on holiday for two weeks and then you get right back to normal" says Cuthbertson "But the problem is that many people dont reverse back to these levels of activity and then perhaps the effects will accumulate" The longer people are inactive the harder it is to get back into shape he adds especially for those who already have health issues Cuthbertson also stresses that even if people cant get to the gym or break a sweat regularly just staying activeby sitting less and walking morecan help ward off the types of changes observed in this study "Simply being less sedentary and maintaining a high step count has very clear health benefits" he says The bottom line Consequences from inactivity can occur sooner than people might realize say the study authors so its important to keep moving and avoid long periods of sitting But if you have been getting less physical activity than normal its also not too late to regain what you might have lost This article originally appeared on Healthcom Contact us at [email protected] companies and futurists have long argued that virtual reality or VR will give rise to the next generation of personal computing forever changing our lives But for all the high-tech VR headsets on the market today most are riddled with shortcomings Among the biggest complaints about modern VR: High-end headsets require a powerful (and pricy) computer to run they must remain tethered to that computer when in use which can be cumbersome during gameplay and they’re a pain to set up To one degree or another these gripes are true of all the most popular VR goggles out there from the Oculus Rift to the HTC Vive and the Sony PlayStation VR Thankfully for VR enthusiasts tech firms are hard at work looking to solve these problems Among the potential solutions: A technology called “inside-out tracking” which uses sensors built into a VR headset to track a wearer’s movements rather than relying on external equipment On a practical level inside-out tracking could mean no more setting up external cameras bumping into furniture or having to stay within a designated zone while using a VR device Intel Microsoft and Facebook are all pursuing the technology Read more: The Ultimate Virtual Reality Buyer’s Guide Intel’s efforts revolve around what it calls Project Alloy an experimental VR headset The device combines inside-out tracking technology with a design that houses all the requisite processing power internally eliminating the need to be tethered to a powerful expensive computer Intel says it isn’t planning on launching Alloy as a consumer device Rather it’s working with developers to make their own headsets based on the hardware Intel says the first fruit of that labor should arrive on store shelves by the holiday season though further details including exact pricing haven’t been announced “Many high-end [VR devices] require you to have an external tracking system” says Intel’s Achin Bhowmik who leads the company’s Perceptual Computing Group “So that is difficult to use and people need to get used to it with Project Alloy we realized an opportunity to resolve these issues” Facebook meanwhile says it has developed a prototype headset that uses inside-out tracking and is completely wireless Microsoft says it’s working with companies like HP Dell and Lenovo to design VR accessories capable of inside-out tracking that will work with cheaper computers HTC’s Vive headset says Forrester analyst J P Gownder offers “the best experience in VR” today an opinion shared by many tech critics Still Gownder adds that “what they have not shown is a way to make that happen that is simple and affordable” HTC’s VR device alone costs $800 provided you have a computer that can run it But designs like Project Alloy could make VR more accessible while preserving the praiseworthy experience It also claims to add new tricks like a “merged reality” feature that blends the wearer’s physical surroundings with a digital experience When playing a game for example Alloy could transform a nearby couch into a generator aboard an alien spaceship preventing players from an accidental collision during gameplay without taking away from the virtual environment Early impressions of Intel’s hardware suggest there are wrinkles to be ironed out but the project remains very much in the experimental phase Read more: Why Virtual Reality is About to Change the World Not to be outdone HTC is working on ways to improve its own VR hardware It recently unveiled a new tracker that can help real-world accessories better mesh with digital environments In a sign of the VR industry’s sometimes complex web of partnerships HTC is also working with Intel on wireless technology that both firms hope could end the need for movement-restricting wires Inside-out tracking could introduce new problems just as it solves existing dilemmas Going wireless raises questions about battery life as these headsets won’t be able to draw power from a PC Intel hopes Alloy will last multiple hours on a single charge but that remains to be seen (Graphics-intensive games will likely drain more power than say watching a VR movie) What also remains unclear is whether or not these wireless headsets will be able to offer the graphics processing power of those attached to PCs Gownder the analyst thinks PCs will continue to play an important role in providing high-quality VR for the foreseeable future Content creators meanwhile may have to grapple with the newfound freedom of a cordless experience after years of designing more limited experiences “It’s very difficult to shoot an entire scene that you can walk around in” says Patrick Meegan creative director at VR platform Jaunt “You would have to shoot individual subjects or two or three subjects at a time It would be going further into the method of composing a scene that you would be more familiar with in game design” While VR has yet to go mainstream it’s clear that Silicon Valley is hard at work improving the technology in hopes of wider adoption Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for instance recently said he expects to spend $3 billion over the next decade to make VR more accessible and that’s after his company bought Oculus for more than $2 billion Still Gownder believes it will take some time before we see massive improvements in the experience “Star Trek: The Next Generation becomes the reference point” says Gownder “Everybody wants VR to be more like the Holodeck We are in the early days” Contact us at [email protected] Bradley told the New York Times he now believes his father had raised a flag with his fellow soldiers earlier in the day, He riffed

announced this week "Observations of Europa have provided us with tantalizing clues over the last two decades and the time has come to seek answers to one of humanitys most profound questions" John Grunsfeld associate administrator for NASAs Science Mission Directorate said in a public statement An observational spacecraft is slated to launch by the late 2020’s After several years the craft will enter Jupiter’s orbit offering upwards of 45 opportunities to fly within shutter range of Europa collecting images of the planet’s surface and possibly “tasting” spumes from massive geysers erupting into space However the craft won’t actually land on the Europa’s surface The spacecraft will have to take only a glancing look given the intense levels of radiation “Any mission that goes in the vicinity of Europa gets cooked pretty quickly” says Europa mission project scientist Robert Pappalardo Europa first captivated NASA scientists in the late 1990’s when the Hubble telescope returned images of the planet’s icy crust Scientists theorized that an ocean might lay beneath the crust holding twice as much water as large as all of Earth’s oceans combined NASA hopes to gain a deep enough understanding of the water’s composition to see if it contains signs of life or life-sustaining nutrients “That would mean the origin of life must be pretty easy throughout the galaxy and beyond”

for its initial dawdling campaign seems dubious General Joseph Dunford the nations top military officer told Congress Dec 1 that the US government pinpointed the key nodes in ISISs oil operation "back in the spring" and that the government then spent "a couple of months" planning before ordering the increased strikes "There wasn’t a clear understanding of how [ISIS] was generating revenue" until September the Marine four-star general said "In the weeks subsequent to August we started to have a much better appreciation for the source of [ISIS] revenue" Armed with that information he said the US began hammering ISIS oil assets "because we then appreciated how much of an impact that would have" Yet Army General Lloyd Austin overseeing the anti-ISIS campaign said in October 2014 that ISIS "derives significant revenue from oil production" (Tellingly in a Nov 9 letter to Senator Angus King I-Maine Austin listed attacking oil targets as the last in a list of 37 accomplishments in the fight against ISIS) The strategy has finally shifted from repairable pinpricks to bigger and more precise attacks designed to take ISIS oil offline for months if not years "Why did we wait a year"
