High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol – What the Numbers Mean

About 75 million adults in the U.S. have high blood pressure and cholesterol, and more than half are unaware. Approximately 1,100 people die every day due to causes related to high blood pressure (HBP), and the symptoms are not always apparent. Having pre-hypertension or diabetes only increases your risk of developing HBP, and black men are 50-percent more likely to have those medical conditions. They are also most likely to develop these health aliments and often remain untreated or undiagnosed due to apathy, lack of resources and the challenges that the current healthcare system presents to minority populations.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, here are the numbers that determine whether your blood pressure is in a healthy range. If your blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg, it is in a normal range. If your reading is 140/90 mmHg or above, it is too high. If your levels fall within the range of 120/80 to 139/89 mmHg, you may have a condition called pre-hypertension, which means you are at high risk for high blood pressure. You can check your blood pressure regularly with a home monitoring device and by having regular check-ups with your doctor.

It is also important to stay on top of your cholesterol levels. Unchecked, high levels of cholesterol can lead to heart disease and strokes, which claim the lives of approximately 140,000 Americans each year. Healthcare professionals recommend being tested for cholesterol every five years, after the age of 20. Here are the numbers to keep in mind to determine whether your levels are good. Your total cholesterol level should be less than 200(mg/dL). A reading of 200 to 239(mg/dL) is considered borderline high and 240(mg/dL) and up is considered high. The goal for your LDL number, which is your bad cholesterol, should be less than 100(md/dL) and your HDL number, which is your good cholesterol should be 60 (mg/dL) or higher.

Obesity, over consumption of alcohol, smoking cigarettes, and excess sodium intake are all factors that could increase your risk of high blood pressure and cholesterol. So, you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to keep your numbers in check.

Getting Older Doesn’t Have to Mean Feeling Old. Here’s How to Stay Vibrant


As much as I’d like to say otherwise, we all get older whether we want to or not.

The good news is, reaching middle age can be liberating and fun.

Sure, we have to think more carefully about things like retirement and long-term investments. But middle age also means we may have a bit more disposable income to spend on things like sports cars or travel adventures.

The key to getting the most out of middle age and beyond, however, is staying healthy enough to enjoy it.

Most of us know to get regular checkups at the doctor and a smattering of yearly medical tests. But learning the nuances of taking care of ourselves as we age is a little more difficult because there’s a lot more to remember.

Fortunately, the New York Times put together a list of just about everything people 30 years and older should keep in mind to stay healthy and active well into their senior years.

The Well Midlife Tuneup offers tips on everything from nutrition and exercise to the importance of staying connected with friends and family as we age.

The list also addresses health issues that we assume are a normal part of aging but that could actually be mitigated or avoided altogether by actively managing our health and fitness.

For example, our hearing naturally decreases as we get older, but a midlife hearing test could catch noise-induced hearing loss before it becomes irreversible.

The tuneup tip sheet also reminds us that Medicare doesn’t cover dental procedures, so being mindful of our dental health can save us money on expensive corrective procedures down the road.

For more midlife health and wellness tips, be sure to check out the entire list on the New York Times website.

I recommend bookmarking it for reference and printing out a copy to keep on hand at home.

What the G7 and G20 Summits Could Mean for Feminist Foreign Policy Worldwide

This week, world leaders will meet in the Charlevoix region of Quebec, Canada for the annual G7 Leaders’ Summit. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been gathering headlines for his leadership of the G7; a self-described feminist, Trudeau has placed gender equality at the center of the G7 agenda and invited more leaders from the Global South than in recent years. Similarly, Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri, leading this year’s G20, has committed to a “cross-cutting gender approach.”

Decisions made at the G7 and G20 can change the course of international policy and cooperation. With all eyes on the global stage, civil society has been calling on Trudeau and Macri to fully embrace ideals of equality and inclusion. Feminist advocates have been at the forefront of these efforts, urging governments to fully integrate gender into their outcomes and to invest accordingly.

But what are the G7 and G20, and why should we care?

In 2015, thousands snaked through midtown Manhattan in a collective show of solidarity for the global women’s movement with UN Women. (J Carrier for UN Women / Creative Commons)

The G7 includes seven of the world’s leading economies; the G20 is composed of the same G7 countries plus the European Union and twelve emerging economies. These forums, given their economic power, wield immense global influence—directing national and multilateral policies towards political and socioeconomic issues.

Every year, a different government takes over each summit’s Presidency and is responsible for determining the agenda. In the G20 context, the previous, current and subsequent presidencies work together as a “troika” to maintain consistency from year to year. The G7 and G20 are primarily led by officials referred to as Sherpas, who represent the heads of state and government. They meet a few times each year to negotiate their governments’ shared interests.

The G7 and G20 are not exactly inclusive processes, nor are they very transparent—civil society and other key stakeholders are not given a preview of the discussion outcomes and strategies or asked for their input before they are made public. However, there are multiple pathways for official stakeholder engagement.

Both summits have seven official engagement groups, including forums for business associations (B7/B20), civil society (C7/C20), labor unions (L7/L20), the scientific community (S7/S20), think tanks (T7/T20), women’s organizations (W7/W20) and youth leaders (Y7/Y20). These groups organize ahead of the Leaders’ Summit to submit recommendations to G7 and G20 leadership, aiming to influence their political and financial commitments. Civil society organizations also collaborate separately through national and global advocacy networks such as the G7 Global Task Force, a coalition that develops its own policy recommendations and organizes advocacy efforts both in G7 countries and at global convenings.

In addition to Sherpa meetings, the Presidency hosts both working group meetings and ministerial meetings. Working group meetings focus on specific topics like development, health or climate change. The Accountability Working Group publishes a report every three years on the G7’s progress in meeting its commitments. Ministerial meetings, which convene government officials like foreign or finance ministers, often release their own outcomes. The G20 process is heavily influenced by finance ministers and central bank governors, as the summit tends to focus more narrowly on global economic cooperation—as opposed to the G7, which addresses broader economic and political issues. The Sherpa team, working group members and ministers are most closely associated with decision-making at the G7 and G20—making them essential contacts for civil society advocates. 

The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) has been actively participating in both civil society advocacy and official engagement groups around the G7 and G20. Through our involvement, we’ve seen that Canadian leadership has demonstrated an unprecedented level of interest in advancing gender equality compared to previous presidencies.

Last year’s Italian G7 Presidency organized the first gender ministerial meeting—but it was held after the Leaders’ Summit, and therefore had minimal impact and little visibility. Italy also released the first G7 Roadmap for a Gender-Responsive Economic Environment, outlining policies to advance women’s economic empowerment.

Canada has aimed to take things further, and with a broader gender agenda. Prime Minister Trudeau established the first Gender Equality Advisory Council to oversee the integration of gender throughout all G7 activities. The Council recently released its own recommendations for the G7, which elevate and endorse those issued by the W7. Both sets of recommendations call on G7 leaders to adopt a feminist approach that integrates intersectionality, acknowledges diversity and gives adequate funding to women’s rights organizations and movements. 

ICRW and allies are calling on G7 and G20 countries to make advanced commitments to gender equality and women’s rights with meaningful and sustained investments. There’s a real opportunity for G7 and G20 countries to drive the feminist agenda forward this year—but first, they must unify. Consensus is a central focus of these summits, and even if Canada or Argentina want to make bold strides, other member-states may drag their feet.

That’s where advocacy comes into play, particularly given the fact we are living in an era of growing political divisions. Feminist advocates are needed now more than ever, with the pendulum of gender equality poised to swing forward. The time is now for feminist civil society to pressure world leaders to take bolder actions, to be more inclusive in their approach and to hold themselves accountable and follow through on their commitments.

Spogmay Ahmed is a Global Policy Associate at the International Center for Research on Women.

New Medicare Cards Mean New Scams: Here’s What You Need to Know


Last year we told you about the new Medicare card recipients would be getting in 2018.

The new cards will no longer include Social Security numbers, gender or signatures, and will instead use a computer-generated series of letters and numbers to better protect recipients’ identities against scams.

And as soon as the announcement was made, scammers started using the new cards as bait for new identity theft tactics.

This is why we can’t have nice things.

Medicare scams are nothing new, and these particular scams are the same wolves in different moo-moos.

Scammers will call up Medicare beneficiaries and tell them that to get their new card, they need to provide their Social Security number and banking information.

From there, the scammer can use the Social Security number to open bank accounts, get medical care, and steal benefits or tax refunds.

This is unfortunate, but the new cards are long overdue. In instances of fraud, Social Security numbers are difficult to change, but if someone shady gets hold of your Medicare unique identifier, that can easily be switched up.

There are 58.5 million Medicare cards being mailed out between April 2018 and April 2019, which is a lot of opportunity for these scammers. To save you or someone you know the hassle of identity theft, here are the facts about getting your new Medicare card.

1. You Don’t Need to Do Anything to Get Your New Medicare Card

The government is busy enough. Medicare isn’t going to call you asking for information it already has. The only thing you need to do is make sure your mailing address is up-to-date and just sit around wait for your card.

If you’re worried your address may not be up-to-date, you can update it one of three ways: online, over the phone (by calling 800-772-1213) or at a local Social Security office.

2. Don’t Expect Your Card Right Away

Speaking of sitting around and waiting for your new card, you may want to get up and walk around a little.

Medicare is mailing out cards by geographic region over 12 months. You can check its website to see where you fall on its delivery schedule.

3. Your Current Card Is Good Through the End of 2019

Don’t panic if you don’t see your new card soon.

Current cards will be accepted through Dec. 31, 2019. When you do get your new card, immediately shred the old one and start using the new one. New cards don’t need to be activated and will be accepted immediately upon delivery.

4. Medicare Advantage Cards Aren’t Changing

Don’t expect a new Medicare Advantage card. They already use unique identification numbers, so those won’t change.

5. Reporting Fraud Helps Everyone

You might get one of these calls and just hang up, but considering reporting it. The more information there is on these scammers, the fewer people they can deceive.

If you’ve received one of these new senior scam calls, report it online to your state’s Senior Medicare Patrol or by phone to the Medicare Fraud tip line at 800-MEDICARE. If you’ve been a victim of this type of fraud, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

Becoming a mom made me a mean wife

by

Joanna Venditti

posted in Life

The day my husband Mike threw his back out, we had made plans. We were going plant some trees in our backyard for some much needed privacy. But when I got that call from Mike while I was out grocery shopping last Saturday morning, everything changed.

He ended up having to go to the hospital to see if his injury from lifting way too much wood at once without bending his knees had done permanent damage. It hadn’t, but he was sent home with strict instructions to rest. The gardening would have to wait.

When we returned from the emergency room I jumped into action, making sure Mike was comfortable on the couch, while I did parental double duty. He kept apologizing, and I kept reassuring him that it was no big deal. We would just take it slow and count our blessings. I meant it, too.

Later that evening, when the work of parenting our four kids and caring for my husband was taking its toll, I began to think:  Two years ago I would have been pissed off. I would have been annoyed plans changed and that he hurt himself.

You see, two years ago our marriage was in trouble, and we knew it. We were in the trenches with four young kids and what started as a romance filled with compassion, had rotted away to unfounded anger.

marriage

We were exhausted and spread thin, and started blaming each other.

In the midst of the diapers, the cooking, the crying, the bedtimes, the sleepless nights, the mess, and the expense, we forgot how to be kind to each other. On that fateful day almost two years ago, Mike and I were really honest with each other and admitted we were at war.

We realized that two things had to change to turn our marriage around.

family of six

First, we had to start dating each other again.

Four kids is a lot, and it was hard to find quality alone time together where we could just share and listen to one another.

You can read more about why I started dating my husband again here.

Second, we had to remember to be kind to one another.

This may be such a simple task, but we had turned on each other and it was time to start showing some compassion. This small gesture has had a huge impact on our relationship. It has stopped us from having many fights, and turned the atmosphere in our home into a calm, relaxing place.

I am saddened to think that I once used to be so annoyed and angry, but am so thankful that Mike and I were able to acknowledge what the problem was and to remember the kindness in our relationship.

Facebook is banning women for saying mean things about men

Saying ‘men are scum’ is apparently a lot worse than ‘women are scum’

facebook

Women are being suspended from Facebook for ‘hate speech’ for posting ‘men are scum’ or ‘men continue to be the worst’ on the social network.

One of the women recently banned is New York standup comic Marcia Belsky, who was blocked for 30 days for writing ‘men are scum’ in a comment under a post by her friend Nicole Silverberg.

Somewhat ironically, Silverberg had been detailing the abusive messages she received from men after writing a list on Twitter about the ways women could be treated better.

Since the #MeToo movement, a number of women have been banned for responding to female friends’ stories of sexual assault and harassment with derogatory posts about men. This is despite Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg’s recent post in solidarity with victims of sexual harassment.

According to the Daily Beast, comedian Kayla Avery received a month-long ban for writing ‘men continue to be the worst’ after being aggressively trolled online. ‘There was one guy who was threatening to find my house and beat me up. I got banned before I could even successfully report it’ she told the site.

In protest, 500 female comedians set up a group where they pledged to post ‘men are scum’ on their own pages, but many of these women then found they too had been blocked.

The reaction from Facebook is being viewed as suspiciously heavy handed, particularly regular criticism levelled at the site for its anaemic response to hate speech and trolling. As Marcia Belsky – one of the original comics to be banned – pointed out, ‘women are scum’ or the use of the n-word didn’t appear to have violated the platform’s standards.

One reason for the site’s approach could be down to a set of leaked internal documents detailing the algorithms it uses to tackle what it deems to be hate speech.

The documents show white men were categorised as a protected group on Facebook, but ‘female drivers’ and ‘black children’ were subsets and therefore not protected.

This doesn’t explain why ‘women are scum’ appeared to go unmoderated. And though Facebook later said the ban on Marcia Belsky was a mistake, Kayla Avery said Facebook moderators had combed through her old posts to delete negative posts about men.

‘What. A. Mystery!’ she wrote on Twitter.

What Does Superman’s Presence on This New ‘Justice League’ Poster Mean?

Justice League is only a few months away and we’re about to get hit with a marketing hurricane. It was only a matter of time before the marketing revealed that Superman was returning to the fold. The unambiguous ending of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all but shouted that to the heavens. We’ve seen a few fan-made posters that inserted the Man of Steel into the Justice League lineup, but today gives us our first official look at Kal-El’s return.

Check out the poster, but keep reading because we’ve got a lingering few questions about this revival.


justice league superman poster

What About That Black Suit?

The biggest question – other than how they’ll explain away Superman’s revival – is why he isn’t in a black outfit. In the comic book arc The Death and Return of Superman, Clark came back with his powers severely diminished. He was also wearing a black suit (sans cape) with a silver S insignia.


superman black costume death and return of superman

A lot of fans assumed that Justice League would bring this iconic look to the big screen, and they actually got what seemed to be confirmation from Henry Cavill himself. Cavill posted this picture on his Instagram that basically revealed the black costume’s appearance.

So, is the black suit still going to show up? It’s definitely possible. The marketing team might be holding off on showing the black suit for a cool reveal in the movie. It’s also a possibility that the studio doesn’t want the black suited Superman to show up in marketing because of the tonal approach the advertising is taking. Justice League is positioning itself as a fun, almost light-hearted superhero film. Having Superman show up looking like he took his suit to a Hot Topic tailor might smash that image.

Could We See Two Super Suits?

Another theory is that Justice League will take inspiration from The Death and Return of Superman by having Clark show up in the black suit and not have all of his powers. In the comic book, he had to use weapons and gadgets in order to fight his enemies while his body soaked in some solar radiation and recharged his abilities. A similar plot point might be what happens in Justice League, so Clark might have the black suit while he’s powered down and then reclaim the ol’ red and blue duds once he’s back up to full power.

Here’s hoping we get to see some more of Superman in the marketing now that the posters and latest trailer have told us he’s returning. We’ll know the answers to all these questions when justice League opens on November 17.

Kelly Ripa Says Hubby Mark Consuelos Is ‘Mean’ To Her After Sex

Kelly Ripa got very personal when her husband, Mark Consuelos, co-hosted her show on Wednesday. 

The “Live! With Kelly” star remarked that she probably shouldn’t share this tidbit about the couple’s sex life, before continuing: “When there’s special married couple time in our house — do you know what I’m talking about?” Ripa asked the audience. “’Cause there’s kids watching so I’m just going to say let’s call it special grownup time.” 

“He’s immediately mean to me afterwards and I don’t like that. I think it’s bizarre. He becomes short with me, you know what I mean? Like, irritated,” the host said.

“Is that true?” Consuelos interjected.

“I’m like, ‘Oh, now you’re irritated? You were so loving three minutes ago!” Ripa said, while her shocked husband burst into laughter.

Considering these two lovebirds have been married since 1996, we’re confident they’ll find a way to weather the awkward admission. 

Hey doing the show with my fave now..!!!

Virginia Tech Coach Buzz Williams Is A Good Sport About Reading Mean Tweets

Buzz Williams may have lost 22 games in his first season as the basketball coach at Virginia Tech, but he certainly didn’t lose his sense of humor.

In a video he posted Monday, Williams takes a page from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and reads “mean tweets” about himself.

Some are mean, all right: “He’s got the fattest neck I’ve ever seen.”

“All my stress goes to my neck,” he jokingly replies.

Anyway, props to Williams for being a good sport.
