To get better balance, power and agility, kickboxing is king among workouts. Experts who have studied the sport say nearly everyone -even older people who might shy away from such things-can benefit from throwing a punch.Unlike most other types of exercise, kickboxing emphasizes powerful movements. Power is different from strength, and for older adults, it’s an even better predictor of mobility and their risk for falls. Kickboxing training tends to involve shorts bouts, two to three minutes long, of intense, repetitive movement - like hitting a punching bag over and over again and kicking and kneeing a pad someone else is holding. Some research shows that even very brief stretches - just 60 seconds - of HIIT can offer the same gains in heart and lung health as 45 minutes of less-intense exercise.Kickboxing has been shown to improve fitness, power, flexibility and agility, according to a study of healthy men in their twenties who trained three days a week for five weeks. The men in the
Can you imagine even one day without turning on the TV, radio? We are bombarded with media on all sides, whether we want it or not, the world has moved forward so much that it is becoming inevitable.January 24 marks World Mass Media Day.This holiday was established by Pope Paul VI, on the day of St. Francis Selezes, who is the patron saint of journalists and all creators of social media. As Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI stressed, mass media should be guided by what is right, without offending human dignity, and emphasize family values.Mass media, broadcast content on a global scale and are massively received. Unconsidered content that goes out into the world often has the opposite effect. The first medium to be introduced was the press - 19th century (Europe, North America), film - 1920s, radio - 1930s, television - 1950s. However, without the invention of University of Pennsylvania scientists J.P. Eckert and J.W. Mauchly, we would not have computers today. Their prototype ca

Did you know that KFC on Christmas Eve is a must have in Japan? 🎄🍗In Japan, they used to eat Karaage chicken on Christmas Eve, which was very similar in taste to KFC chicken. KFC managers used a great marketing ploy which resulted in them releasing festive buckets of Kentucky chicken on Christmas Eve. Every year, a costumed Lieutenant Sanders dressed as Father Christmas stands in front of each restaurant and Japanese people queue up outside the restaurant to get their bucket. In the Land of the Cherry Blossom, there is a marketing slogan "Christmas is Kentucky".
There are many legends surrounding the tradition of Christmas stockings. One tells of Santa Claus giving a gift to the poor in the form of gold coins, which he imperceptibly tucked into their washed stockings hung by the fireplace. It is said that in the 12th century in Francia, nuns visited the poor, offering them socks full of nuts and fruit (mainly mandarins).Today, the tradition is popular in the UK and the USA. On 24 December, children hang the socks on the mantelpiece or by their beds hoping to find presents in them. In exchange for Christmas trinkets, they often leave cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.
A German printer named Gerhard Lang is credited with the idea of the Advent Calendar itself. He designed cardboard Advent calendars around the turn of the century and later in the 1920s, came up with the idea of cutting out little doors that could be opened each day. Behind each door, one could expect to find a devotional picture or Bible verse. For those who are not religious, modern Advent calendars are a treat-filled way of marking off the days leading up to Christmas or Santa's arrival. 🎅 Have a great weekend😀

Winter is slowly coming, it’s getting colder. There is a lot of snow in the Tatra Mountains. Winter is a fantastic time to do some outdoor activities. Skiing, skating, hiking.… ⛸🎿 I can't wait to put on my ski boots and have a remarkable time on the slopes with my family. 😎 On top of that, I plan to go hiking in the beautiful winter scenery. 😍 What winter sports do you do? Skis? Snowboarding? Or maybe your favorite activity is a blanket, a book (or ski jumping competitions) and hot tea? ☕😋
Durian is a fruit that you either love, or hate. Around Asia, it is quite the celebrated delicacy....one which you can smell from a mile away. This tropical fruit is known for its meaty texture, spiky exterior, and pungent odor. Many chefs around the world have incorporated it into desserts and main dishes on their menus too, creating adventurous specials and head turning bites.I had the opportunity to try this fruit during my trip in Thailand, but unfortunately it does not count among my best memories 😅For me the fruit has the consistency of an avocado, which I love but the smell is unmercifully cruel - I guess I wouldn't know what to compare it to. In Thailand there are very high fines for bringing them into a hotel. Interestingly, however, there are restaurants where you pay a specific amount and can eat the fruit as long as you have the strength.I would rather not dare to try it again, but there are many lovers of it - also for its health properties. Would you dare to try it?
