What is the state of activism in America, your state and your community? People are busier now than ever before, or perhaps just more distracted. Phones, tablets and 3D TV's compete to keep us endlessly entertained. Is there a cost for this non stop indulgence? Many of us have over one hundred facebook friends but some of the same people don't know their neighbor or parents of their childrens classmates. The less we interact with each other the less we know about each other which can leave room for old suspicions and beliefs to return. We don't care what happpens as long as it doesn't happen to us. Also this week, the latest updates on the Kendrick Johnson and Kenisha McBride cases along with local, national and internation Word On The Street. Join us this Thursday, November 21st from 7p-9p CDT at www.blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call in on 347.857.2097 and let's rap about it.
Fitness Benefits For Teens
Teens and young adults, both male and female, benefit from physical activity.
Physical activity does not need to be strenuous to be beneficial.
Moderate amounts of daily physical activity are recommended for people of all ages. This amount can be obtained in longer sessions of moderately intense activities, such as brisk walking for 30 minutes, or in shorter sessions of more intense activities, such as jogging or playing basketball for 15-20 minutes.
Greater amounts of physical activity are even more beneficial, up to a point. Excessive amounts of physical activity can lead to injuries, menstrual abnormalities, and bone weakening.
Nearly half of American youths aged 12-21 years are not vigorously active on a regular basis. About 14 percent of young people report no recent physical activity. Inactivity is more common among females (14%) than males (7%) and among black females (21%) than white females (12%).
Participation in all types of physical activity declines strikingly as age or grade in school increases.
Only 19 percent of all high school students are physically active for 20 minutes or more, five days a week, in physical education classes.
Daily enrollment in physical education classes dropped from 42 percent to 25 percent among high school students between 1991 and 1995.
Well designed school-based interventions directed at increasing physical activity in physical education classes have been shown to be effective.
Social support from family and friends has been consistently and positively related to regular physical activity.

Many diseases adversely affect our brain health later in life such as Alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinsons. Perhaps we can help by maintaining good oxygen levels and doing activites which activate our brain daily, like computer games, sports, meditation, conversations, team board games, reading, writing, exercises. Dr. David Barczyk, D.C. addresses 5 activities which may help save you and loved ones from future brain diseases which are aggravated by inactivity.
1. Meditate: Meditation has been shown to increase IQ and decrease stress. Meditate 10 minutes a day. No excuses. (If you’ve never meditated before and are too afraid at this point to ask how to do it, the answer is simple to give, but difficult to do. To meditate means to clear your brain. Basically, think about nothing. If you’ve never tried it, you may be surprised at what a challenge such a simple seeming task can be. Stay in the struggle and do it. One tip is to little envision chasing your thoughts away to leave your brain clear.)
2. Listen to music or better yet learn to play music.
3. Exercise: Walk. Bike. Swim. Exercise increases oxygen. Your brain loves oxygen.
4. Change your environment: Look for ways to struggle. Take a different route to work. If you usually go left, go right. Do something different. Change your routine.
5. Think positive

People avoid certain drugs because they "know" it kills them. People avoid guns, gangs because they "know" you can get killed. People "sometimes" avoid drinking and driving because they "know" it kills. So why don't people regulate their diets to avoid obesity when they "know" it kills???? Millions of people are dying because they are overweight. Why is that? Asking callers why they believe this is, what can be done about it, how they have helped others, and more.

Let's face it. It's hard to lose. Whether it's a job, a contest, a relationship, nobody likes to lose.
Lost confidence is often the result of loss. Taking a blow to your self-esteem slows you down and cause you to doubt yourself and your ability. This, in turn, can cause you to shy away from taking risks that could possibly lead to great opportunities. But you've got to know that living a fullfilled life actually requires you getting back into the ring and trying again.
If you're hiding behind the pain of disappointment or defeat, and you know you need to recapture your confidence, but you're too afraid to try, this show is for you. It's time to loosen your grip on the security of inactivity and start wading into the waters of possibility again!

Men and space? Recent studies show dogs in space are prime for human advancement. So are the wonderful men in our lives. If men think like waffles and women like sphaghetti, this hilarious 15 minute conversation will make you smile and be something to take with you throughout the day.
Dogs were the preferred animal during 1950s and 1960s USSR orbital space flights for the experiments because scientists felt dogs were well suited to endure long periods of inactivity. As part of their training, they were confined in small boxes for 15–20 days at a time. Stray dogs, rather than animals accustomed to living in a house, were chosen because the scientists felt they would be able to tolerate the rigours and extreme stresses of space flight better than other dogs. Female dogs were used because of their temperament and because the suit the dogs wore in order to collect urine and feces was equipped with a special device, designed to work only with females.
The dangers of living a sedentary life are many. Even if you think you are energetic, sitting all day at work is common for most of us. And it's killing us—literally—by way of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. All this downtime is so unhealthy that it's given birth to a new area of medical study called inactivity physiology, which explores the effects of our increasingly butt-bound, tech-driven lives, as well as a deadly new epidemic researchers have dubbed "sitting disease." Our bodies have evolved over millions of years to do one thing: Move ! That's not all. The less you move, the less blood sugar your body uses; research shows that for every two hours spent on your backside per day, your chance of contracting diabetes goes up by 7 percent.

This Friday, Dr. Maiysha and Coach Elliott will be welcoming Jay “Master Fitness” Gee to talk about your health and not letting it take a backseat in your life.
After getting out of the Army in 1999, Jay Gee was in a horrific car accident and bed ridden for over a month. Transitioning into a typical office job (aka sedentary in a cubicle), coupled with years of horrible eating, nursing injuries, weight gain and inactivity, Jay I could not take it any longer. Subsequently, he was the victim of a mugging and was stabbed multiple times, setting his health to an all-time low. Jay made an immediate life change…The first change was in his own mind, then his body.
Today, he sees a broad picture and realization that health takes a backseat in so many Americans lives today and they don’t realize it until it is too late. His goal is to help as many people as possible realize the dangers before it is too late.
