A 2-Minute Anti-Aging Activity

A 2-Minute Anti-Aging Activity Amassing published studies show that sitting for extended periods of time each day leads to increased risk for early death, as well as heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions. Emerging data suggests that it is not sufficient to simply replace sitting with standing. Srinivasan Beddhu, from the University of Utah (Utah, USA), and colleagues analyzed data collected in 3,626 men and women enrolled in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey , 2003-2004.  The team found that by replacing sitting for 2 minutes each hour with walking for 2 minutes hourly, lowered the risk of dying by 33%.  The study authors submit that: “Interventions that replace sedentary duration with an increase in light activity duration might confer a survival benefit.”

Credit River History - The Majestic Credit River









https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ukf5... to watch this beautiful video by Heritage Mississauga and Sanborg Productions.

It all started here. This fast moving river, oh the stories it could tell. On its banks, anglers compete for steelhead, families enjoy picnics and children play. Flowing for 1,070 kilometres from the headwaters above the Niagara Escarpment to Port Credit at Lake Ontario, this is the majestic Credit River. Home to a wide range of wildlife, it’s an ecological wonderland. It’s also one of the most important rivers in Southern Ontario with a 10,000 year heritage. At first glance, it’s hard to imagine the incredible history it holds. And how it played such a valuable role in bringing commerce to this area.
The Ojibwa called it “Missinnihe” or “trusting creek” based on the trading relationship between Native and European peoples. The Credit River was named by a French fur trader around 1668 to honor this trustworthy exchange. At one time major milling complexes stretched along its banks. The stonehooking, fishing and transportation industries prospered. Today it’s a place where family activities and community festivals abound. Conservation of its water and shores is an ongoing task, improving its fishery and wildlife habitats. So while life along the river has changed, for the people who live in Mississauga, it’s a place of tremendous exploration and joy.

Summer fun security tips

TORONTO (JULY, 2015) – As summer approaches and people begin to make use of their cottages and boats, it’s important to keep safety and security in mind while enjoying the warmer weather.

If you’re packing up for a weekend trip to the cottage, there are several things to remember when it comes to keeping your seasonal home safe throughout the summer and into the fall.

“With summer homes and cottages only being occupied a few months out of the year, they are much more vulnerable to break-ins than a typical home,” said Steve Kolobaric, Marketing Manager, Weiser. “Taking a few proactive steps can be the difference between your cottage being at risk or being passed by.”
