How to strengthen your knees if you have aches and pains from running | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 

Knee injuries account for 28 percent of injuries in runners, according to data published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine.

That’s why strengthening the muscles that surround our knees is key to stability and injury prevention. The knee is involved in the full running gait cycle: When we flex it, the hamstrings contract; to extend it, the quadriceps come into play. All of these interconnected muscles need to be strengthened in order to protect that knee.

Running coach Ashley Mateo suggests these exercises in Running World magazine for keeping your legs strong and healthy.

Squat
Stand with feet just wider than hip-width apart, toes pointed slightly out, and hands clasped at chest. Sending hips back, then bend knees to lower down as far as possible while keeping your chest lifted. You should lower down until thighs are at least parallel to floor. Press through heels and engage glutes to return back to the starting position. Repeat. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
Reverse Towel Lunge
Stand with feet hip-width apart with a towel or slider under right foot. Slide right foot back as you bend left knee, allowing left hip to flex, and lowering left knee to floor. Press left heel into the floor, then drive upwards to return to standing. Do 1 to 2 sets of 8 to 10 reps on each side.

Single-Leg Deadlift
Stand with feet hip-width apart. Lift right foot just off of the floor, making sure not to let right hip shift out to the side. With a micro bend in left knee, hinge at hips as right leg lifts straight out behind you and lower chest toward the ground. Continue until chest and right leg are nearly parallel to the floor in a straight line. Pause, then squeeze glutes to return back to starting position. Do 1 to 2 sets of 8 to 10 reps on each leg.

Lateral Lunge
Start in a standing position, then step to your left foot way out to the left, send hips back and bend left knee until hamstring is about parallel to the floor as right leg stays straight. Push off the right foot and return to the starting position, then repeat on the left. Complete 20 total reps, alternating legs. Do 1 to 2 sets.

Step Up
Stand in front of a step or bench. Step up with right foot, then drive the left knee up toward your chest so hip and knee form a 90-degree angle. Return to start. That’s one rep. Do 8 reps on each side. Repeat for 3 sets total. Add a set of dumbbells for an extra challenge as you progress.

Split Squat
Stand a foot or two in front of a bench, box, or step. Reach right foot back and place the toes on the bench. Bend left knee to lower as far as you can with control. Push through left foot to return to standing. Do 2 or 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps per leg.

Things we do that really confuse our dogs | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 

Dog behavior is extraordinarily flexible – this is why we can keep them in our homes and take them to cafes with us at the weekend.

Nevertheless, there are ways in which evolution has not equipped dogs for the challenges of living in our world, and puppies must learn how to cope.

Animal researchers tell us in The Conversation that these are some of the things we do they struggle to understand.

1. We Leave Them Alone
As born socialites, dogs make friends easily. Puppies are intensely interested in spending time with other dogs, people, and any species willing to interact with them socially. They usually play, rest, explore and travel with company. Yet we often leave dogs alone: at home, in kennels, or the vet clinic.

In these situations, naïve dogs can’t be sure we’ll ever return to collect them. Only after experience are they likely to expect a reunion, and even then, their experience depends on the context.

2. We Are Visually Driven
Dogs live in an olfactory world, while ours is chiefly visual. So, while TVs may offer a visual feast for humans, parks and beaches are an olfactory banquet for dogs.

An additional challenge is dogs move while investigating the world, whereas we often sit still. They may not relish the inertia we enjoy in front of a noisy, flashing light-box.
3. We Change Our Shape and Smell
Shoes, coats, wallets, briefcases, bags, and suitcases: countless smells cling to these items after we take them into shops and workplaces, then back to our dogs. Cleaning products, soaps, deodorants, and shampoos also change the scents our dogs are used to.

In their olfactory world, it must be puzzling for dogs to encounter our constantly changing smells, especially for a species that uses scent to identify familiar individuals and intruders.

4. We Like to Hug
How humans use their forelimbs contrasts sharply with how dogs do. We may use them to carry large objects a dog would have to drag, but also to grasp each other and express affection.

Dogs grasp each other loosely when play-wrestling, and also when mating and fighting. Being pinned by another dog hinders a quick escape. How are puppies to know what a hug from a human means, when that behavior from a dog might be threatening?

5. We Don’t Like to Be Bitten
Play-fighting is fun for many puppies and helps them bond with other dogs. Humans are much more susceptible to pain from playful puppy jaws than other dogs are, and so we can react negatively to their attempts to play-fight with us.

Dogs also “mouth” other dogs when playing, expressing affection, and communicating everything from “more” to “please don’t” to “Back off!”. So, naturally, they try to use their mouths when communicating with us and must be puzzled by how often we take offense.

6. We Don’t Eat Food from the Bin
Dogs are opportunists who naturally acquire food anywhere they find it. In contrast, we present them with food in dishes of their own.

Puppies must be puzzled by our reaction when we find them snacking from benches and tables, in lunchboxes and kitchen bins. We should not be surprised when dogs unearth food we left somewhere accessible to them.

7. We Share Territories
We visit the territories of other dogs, bringing back their odors, and allow unfamiliar human and canine visitors to enter our dogs’ homes. Dogs have not evolved to accept such intrusions and threats to their safety and resources.

We shouldn’t be surprised when our dogs treat visitors with suspicion, or when our dogs are treated with hostility when we bring them to the homes of others.

8. We Use Our Hands a Lot
Sometimes our hands deliver food, scratches, massages, and toys. Other times, they restrain dogs, trim nails, administer ointments or tablets, and groom with brushes and combs that may pull hair.

No wonder some dogs grow to fear the human hand as it moves about them. We can make it easier for dogs to accept many types of hand-related activities if we train them to cooperate with rewards.

On the whole, dogs show a remarkable ability to adapt to the puzzles we throw at them. Their behavioral flexibility offers us lessons in resilience and how to live simply and socially. Our challenge is to understand the absence of guile and malice in everything they do.

Words that people constantly mispronounce | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 

It’s a universal feeling: The word is on the tip of your tongue when you suddenly second-guess the pronunciation. After an awkward pause in the middle of your sentence, you throw in a more basic synonym instead.

Doing your research ahead of time can help you avoid these tongue-tying situations, ensuring you sound intelligent while conversing with ease. According to Hailey Hudson as reported in Ladders, here are the nine words people most often mispronounce and the correct ways to say them.

Niche
Niche is one of the most commonly mispronounced words in the dictionary. If you say “nitch,” you’re right on target — this is the traditionally accepted way to pronounce this word (which means, among other definitions, a specialized role). The pronunciation “neesh,” however, is becoming more mainstream. Your pronunciation also depends on if you want to sound more French or not. ;)

Epitome
Often read phonetically as “EP-i-tome,” this noun is actually pronounced “uh-PI-tuh-mee.” The word first appeared in print all the way back in 1520 and refers to a person or thing that’s the ideal example of a specific quality or type.

Hyperbole
Hyperbole is a figure of speech that means an exaggeration. It’s pronounced “high-PER-buh-lee” — remarkably similar to epitome. But while it might seem clear once you see it written out, this is another tricky one: It’s not uncommon to hear people pronounce this word “HIGH-per-bowl.” Moral of the story? Every word is not as it seems. Here’s an example of a phrase that’s hyperbole: “He was running faster than the wind.”
Mischievous
Feeling mischievous? If you announce it, make sure you say the word right. The correct pronunciation of this word is “MIS-chuh-vus.” However, many people say “mis-CHEE-vee-us” instead.

If you’re in the second group, you aren’t crazy. According to Merriam-Webster, the word was often spelled “mischievious” as long ago as the 16th century. Today, however, this alternate spelling and pronunciation are considered nonstandard. So “MIS-chuh-vus” it is.

Segue
Often used as a music term, segue means to continue to what’s next without stopping. Although it doesn’t look like it, this word is pronounced “SEG-way.”

Eligible
It’s tempting to pronounce this word as “ih-LEH-juh-bul.” But if you do, whoever you’re talking to will likely get confused: That’s how a totally separate word, illegible, is pronounced. Stick to “ELL-ih-ju-bull” so your conversation partner stays on track — you’re talking about whether somebody or something is qualified to participate, not whether you can read their handwriting.

Applicable
“AH-plih-ka-bull” is the most commonly accepted pronunciation of this adjective. However, Merriam-Webster says “ah-PLIK-a-bull” is also allowable. In other words, whichever version comes out of your mouth first is acceptable — as long as the word is applicable to the topic at hand.

Transient
You might not use this word in everyday conversation. Meaning “passing quickly into and out of existence,” this double-duty adjective and noun provide a prettier way to refer to things or people that are brief, temporary, or short-lived.
The correct pronunciation of “transient” is “TRAN-she-ent.” But “TRAN-zee-ent” is often used, too — so don’t worry if you slip up.

Quinoa
Taking a lunch break? Make sure you know how to order what you want to eat. Quinoa is a nutritious grain that’s often substituted for rice in various dishes. The word comes from the Spanish language, drawing on the Quechua word “kinua.” And, good news, the pronunciation is actually pretty simple: “I’d like the grilled chicken on a bed of KEEN-wah.”

America’s Most Scenic Road Trips | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 

From the dramatic California coast to history-lined thoroughfares of New England, there are countless scenic drives across the country — and some stellar standouts — Travel & Leisure has picked the best road trips in the U.S.A. with heart-stopping views.
Here are 5 of our favorites from the list, and a way you can find more!

Hana Highway, Maui
The T-shirts all say: I survived the road to Hana. It can take more than two and a half hours to travel the 52 miles from Kahului to Hana, as you snake past steep sea-cliffs lush with blooming mango trees, buy banana bread from roadside stalls, and pull over for Jurassic vistas. In tiny Hana, a town on eastern Maui, a cinder cone shields the red sand beach where beach goers and endangered monk seals bake idly in the sun.

Stop: Drive past Hana to where the road ends (or becomes unpassable, according to most rental car contracts) to visit the Pools of Oheo, a gently cascading, seven-tiered gulch at Haleakala National Park.

Blue Ridge Parkway, The Carolinas and Virginia
The nearly 500 miles of blacktop twisting through the Great Smoky Mountains and Shenandoah national parks was built for travelers seeking Appalachian overlooks. It's a panoramic drive for all seasons, with undulating slopes of color in autumn, a bounty of forest canopy in summer, and ski resorts in winter. The parkway has become a paradise for birders: with over 50 resident species, it boasts more diversity than the entire continent of Europe.

Stop: In the mines of the mineral-rich Appalachian Mountains, visitors can pan for emeralds, amethyst, rubies, topaz, and even gold.

Lake Shore Drive, Chicago
The rock stars of American architecture line up like soldiers facing Lake Michigan, starting north at Hollywood and reaching south through Jackson Park, spanning 26 miles. The downtown buildings are showstoppers, from the blocky staircase of the Willis Tower — formerly the Sears Tower and tallest building in the world — to the Belle Époque elegance of Burnham and Root's Rookery, to the stark post-Bauhaus boxes of Mies van der Rohe. It is the greatest architecture road on earth.

Stop: In Millennium Park, visit the iconic Cloud Gate sculpture.

17-Mile Drive, California
The so-called 17-Mile Drive spanning California's Monterey Peninsula clocks in at less than 10 miles long. On a privately-owned strip off Highway 1, stretching from the towns of Pacific Grove to Carmel, the road runs through the Del Monte forests belonging to the exclusive Pebble Beach golf community. With surf-beaten cliffs and colonies of harbor seals, it also boasts spectacular sunsets over the Pacific that residents say are worth the $10.25 entry fee to use the private road.

Stop: The Monterey Bay Aquarium has sunlit kelp-forest tanks, a petting pool, and a million-gallon tank with giant sharks and sea turtles.

U.S. 1, Florida Keys
Leaving the mainland for the 120-mile-long island chain of Florida's Keys, travelers enter a paradise of beach bars, water sports, and Parrotheads (Jimmy Buffett fans). From Key Largo to Key West, the overseas highway strings the islands together like beads, running past lighthouses, underwater coral reef parks, and across 7 Mile Bridge — one of the longest bridges in the world.

Stop: On the docks at Islamorada, travelers can hand-feed bait fish to tarpon more than six feet long.

Hypothetical questions that give your brain a workout | E-Neighborhood Advisor


The art of conversation is changing. Sometimes we are so connected to our screens that we forget to “connect” with those around us. It’s time to change this.

Once in a while, it’s nice to sit down, relax, and just talk. But chatting can quickly get boring when you stick to small talk. After all, there is only so much to say about the weather. Luckily, posing a couple of hypothetical questions can quickly turn a dull chat into an invigorating conversation.

Whether serious or silly, hypothetical questions are a great way to get an interesting conversation started. They create an open environment where people can share their inner thoughts and feelings. You get to know the person you are talking to better since these “What if…?” questions force you to think and use your imagination.

Save your small talk for the strangers you meet while in line at the supermarket. Try out these hypotheticals the next time you want to have a real conversation.

Hypothetical Questions
1. If you had the chance, would you want to be pain-free for the rest of your life?

2. Would you take a $70k/week job offer where you get paid to sit in a pitch-black room and do nothing for 20 hours a day?

3. What would I hear if I asked a group of people who know you for five adjectives to describe you?

4. Which place on the planet would you never want to live, and why?

5. Which famous person’s body would you possess if you were a ghost?


6. What would you do if you could go back in time and learn something sooner, and how would it change things?

7. Would you rather forget about yourself or forget about anyone else?

8. Will you be able to trade 30 extra years of your life in exchange for allowing a stranger to die?

9. Would you take something that removes your body’s need for sleep if it was given to you?

10. Would you rather have to say anything that comes to mind all the time or never have to say anything at all?

11. Which mask would you like if you had to wear one for the rest of your life?

12. What music would you prefer if you could just listen to one song for the rest of your life?

13. What show would you like if you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month? And who would you be if you were a character?

14. We can select a single color that our eyes can see before we are born. What color would you like to choose?

15. Every day, 12 new things arrive in your house, all of which begin with a letter you choose. Which letter would you pick?

16. What would you choose if you had the option of living for seventy years and being incredibly happy or living forever and being unhappy?

17. How would you handle a situation at work where you were asked to execute a task that went against your morals?

18. Would you like to be the President of the United States or the Head of State of a Monarchy? Where would you rule if you were a monarch?

19. What would you eat if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life?

20. Do you think you could persuade a coworker to see your point of view on a strategy’s direction? If that’s the case, how would you persuade them?

This is just for fun, and a way to shake up conversations.  My kids ask very interesting questions from time to time, that make me think and they love hypothetical questions like some of these.  Have some fun, please don't be offended, and if you want to let me know what your favorite question is, I'm all ears! :)

Five things you didn’t know about Neptune | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 

On September 23, 1846, German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle discovered the planet Neptune, the eighth planet in our solar system. To celebrate this landmark event in astronomical history, here are five things Trivia Today tells us about the planet Neptune...

The Discovery of Neptune is still a Controversy 
The first person to have seen Neptune was likely Galileo, who marked it as a star in one of his drawings. However, since he did not identify it as a planet, he is not credited with the discovery. That credit goes to French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier and the English mathematician John Couch Adams, both of whom predicted that a new planet – known as Planet X – would be discovered in a specific region of the sky. When astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle actually found the planet in 1846, both mathematicians took credit for the discovery.

Neptune is the Coldest Planet in the Solar System 
The temperatures on Neptune can dip down to -221.45 degrees Celsius (-366.6 °F). That’s almost three times the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth (-89.2°C; -129°F), which means that an unprotected human being would flash freeze in a second!

Neptune's has the Fastest Wind Speeds in the Solar System 
Neptune's winds can reach speeds of up to 1,500 miles per hour, faster than the speed of sound. Scientists are puzzled exactly how an icy cold planet like Neptune can get its cloud tops to move so fast. One idea is that the cold temperatures and the flow of fluid gasses in the planet’s atmosphere might reduce friction to the point that it’s easy to generate winds that move so quickly.

Neptune Has Dark Rings 
Neptune has five rings, all named after people involved in the discovery of Neptune (Galle, Le Verrier, Adams, Arago, and Lassell). The rings are not bright like Saturn's, so it's difficult for people to spot the rings even with powerful telescopes. The rings may be the remnants of a moon that was destroyed in an inner orbit, possibly by Neptune's gravity.

Voyager 2 Is the Only Earth Spacecraft to Visit Neptune 
Despite all the probes and telescopes that have been launched from Earth, the only spacecraft that has ever visited Neptune was NASA’s Voyager 2. Voyager 2 made its Neptune flyby on August 25, 1989, passing within 1,860 miles of the planet’s north pole. Voyager 2's data showed geysers on Triton (Neptune's moon) and dispelled the notion that the moon was all ice; it also proved the theory that Neptune has rings. Voyager 2 also viewed Neptune’s “Great Dark Spot,” the rotating storm system which has since disappeared, according to observations by the Hubble Space Telescope.

How to Upgrade a Home Office on a Budget



Photo by Ivan Samkov on Pexels

Working from home is not going away soon, so you should consider upgrading your workspace. To upgrade your home office, you don’t need to break the bank as you can reuse many items already in your home. With a small budget, you can create a conducive working environment in your apartment or townhouse. Here are the ways you can upgrade your workspace on a budget, presented by Capell Flooring and Interiors.

Use Your TV as an External Monitor

A small screen size can hurt your productivity, so upgrading to something bigger could make your work easier. If you have a small laptop screen, you don’t need to buy an external monitor as your TV can work just perfectly. You need an HDMI cable, an HDMI adapter, and a wireless keyboard to create a clean setup that will allow you to complete tasks faster. While some laptops come with an HDMI port built-in, some new models offer a USB-C adapter or Mini Display Port. If you want an extra visual workspace, you can use your TV as the second monitor. Choose the option to extend the screen instead of viewing on a second monitor. This comes in handy when creating content, as it allows you to handle all files in the same place.

Add Plants

Adding plants to your workspace impacts your mood and productivity. Some of the benefits of office plants include the ability to reduce stress, clean the air, and increase productivity. Plants make your workspace more attractive. Seeing greenery and nature promotes calm and can reduce stress, helping you focus on the tasks before you. You can adopt one or two plants to get a mental boost. If you have pets, research the plants that are safe for animals. Place some of the plants on shelves out of your pet’s reach.

Comfortable Furniture

It’s good to splurge a little on a comfortable office chair. Because you spend a lot of your time sitting on a chair, it’s a good investment. Figure out what’s the most comfortable for you. Get a chair that is supportive and comfortable. Features like height adjustability are good and ensure there’s enough padding to keep you in good posture. You can buy it from an office supply store and sit on the chair to know how it feels. If you’re ordering online, check that the store offers a return policy in case the item fails to match your expectations. Also, ensure you have a desk that can accommodate your items, and consider adding storage shelves to your office for the organization. 

Improve Lighting

Poor lighting can lead to fatigue, eye strain, stress, accidents, and headaches. Invest in good office lighting for benefits like less drowsiness, improved mood, fewer mistakes, reduced eye strain, and fewer reports of headaches. If you do zoom calls, you need a lighting setup that will make you look fabulous. Even a classic adjustable table lamp will work perfectly in your home office if you know how to position it. This offers clean lines and flexibility and can help you focus on tasks.

An upgrade on your lighting system is recommended if you don’t have natural light. While making improvements, you should consider changes like your overhead lighting that can boost your property value. This is important if you’re looking to sell soon. Take before-and-after photos to highlight the changes.

Improving your performance in your home office can be a matter of adding a few items like better lighting and more comfortable furniture. These enhancements don’t need to cost a lot as you can find budget furniture that will work perfectly in your home office.
