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, na├»ve 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.”
