If you haven't noticed from the bone chilling cold, remaining balance on your Visa statement or the lack of colour pigment on your skin we are in FEBRUARY. The forgotten month, where New Year's resolutions fall to the way side, people shutter at the thought of leaving the house and shun the Hallmark holiday that put this month on the map. February, besides being sponsored by Cupid is also heart health month. The heart being one of the most important organs in the body requires you to have all forms of nutrition in check. Why not take this month as an excuse to give your heart a little love; emotionally, nutritionally and physically. Stress is considered one of the main contributors to illness. It is important to appreciate how other emotions can affect specific areas and organs of the body. Hindu tradition focuses on chakras as energy centres in the body. These energy centres correlate physical illness in specific areas of the body and the emotions that are associated with these illnesses. The 4th of the chakras, heart chakra, is located in the middle of the chest. When traumas such as death or divorce happen and emotions of rejection, grief, or betrayal occur this can cause the heart chakra to become closed or out of balance. When the heart chakra is closed it will leave the individual feeling withdrawn, jealous and hard on themselves. If any of these emotions ring true to you or you have a heavy feeling on your heart, here are some small changes that you can do to reopen your heart chakra. Wear the colours green or pink Use the essential oil rose oil Visualize a green glowing light around your heart Give yourself a compliment: write down one reason a day why you love yourself and say it out loud in the mirror. Pay it forward: giving selfless love to someone else opens you up to receiving love into your life. Smile with your heart Nutritional Heart Love: Proper nutrition plays an integral role in maintaining optimal heart health. Lucky for us the heart loves a hefty serving of all of my favourite foods. Salmon: when purchased from an organic and wild source will not only satisfy your taste buds but also fulfil your hearts need for low blood pressure. You can thank salmon's high content of omega 3 fatty acids for the extra loving. Tomatoes: this heart shaped fruit contains the antioxidant lycopene. Lycopene served on a combo platter with Vitamin C (which tomatoes are high in as well) aids in decreasing inflammation and reduces the risk of atherosclerosis. Kale: what kind of a nutritionist would I be if I didn't throw KALE into the mix? Kale being the nutrition power house that it is goes to work for our little tickers in many ways. Kale is high in fibre which will help remove the build up of plaque and toxins. This green leafy vegetable can also make your heart skip a beat with its high content of the phytonutrients lutein. Lutein has been found to lower the risk of heart disease. Kale=LOVE! Physical Heart Love: Show your heart that you love it by getting your sweat on. Daily exercise will aid in lowering blood pressure, decreasing stress on the heart, improve circulation and help you maintain a healthy body weight. Looking for a heart approved sweat sesh? Focus on incorporating a yoga practice into your weekly routine. Poses such as camel and cobra will aid in opening up the heart, calming the mind and strengthen the body at the same time. Looking for something to really get your heart pumping? Try interval running. This involves alternating running at speeds that require 95 per cent of your maximum effort between periods of moderate to low (50 65 per cent) effort. Your heart will thank you. As we approach Valentine's Day filled with hope that Cupid will sting us with his love arrow, lets shift the focus to loving ourselves first. February forces us to take stock of our heart. So eat a kale salad, go for a run, hold the door open for a stranger, smile because it's worth it. Lay in shavasana for an extra minute and be open to all of the ways love shows up in your life. About 38 percent of the health apps that smartphone users download are fitness based. And that number is only going to get bigger one estimate from market research company Abiresearch suggests that the fitness apps market will grow to million by 2016 up from just million in 2010. That means we'll total nearly a billion downloads over the next three years. And given how effective those apps can be, if used correctly, doctors may start recommending them for increased fitness that'll particularly help the baby boomer generation, who are more likely to download a health related app that has been recommended by their doctor. Self monitoring formerly the purview of data nerds and navel gazing techies will go mainstream this year, thanks to an increasing number of smartphone apps that help you easily store data on your own behavior and a collection of wearable devices, from Nike Fuel to LarkLife, that do all the work for you. What is self monitoring? It's keeping track on the minute data of your day things like what you eat, how well you sleep and how much you move. Download the data and analyze your own behavior on a spreadsheet. Gluten free foods are necessary for the nearly two percent of the population who suffer from Celiac disease and the estimated 10 percent with a non specified gluten allergy. But somehow, thanks to highly visible gluten sensitive celebrities and fashionable, charming gluten free bakeries like Babycakes, eating without gluten is all the rage. While it may not lead to weight loss, it does have a side benefit of increasing demand for a gluten free options that make eating easier for those with Celiac and other sensitivies. But you don't have to go to a specialty shop for your pastries sans gluten any longer: now giant, national chains like Domino's Pizza are offering specifically gluten free fare. They might be the first, but they won't be the last. The kind of juice that won't stay shelf stable for a year? That's the stuff that will invade your supermarket, your mall court and your Starbucks, if it hasn't already. With billion in revenue this year and projected growth of four to eight percent, healthful, all natural and raw fruit and vegetable juices (think Organic Avenue, Cooler Cleanse but also Jamba Juice) will explode onto the mainstream market. And that growth projection may even be conservative: Starbucks' CEO Howard Shultz vowed to sell juice "in the same tonality that we have reinvented, over the last 40 years, the basic commodity of coffee," reported Barrons.

Republican Party Chairman Tom Dadey, who crashed the press conference, joked to the gathered reporters, "I did not do that." Then, the two proceeded to sling accusations about the way each other's candidates are raising and spending money. Each claim seemed to lack a key piece of evidence and raised questions everyone admits will not be answered by the New York State Board of Elections before voters go to the polls. First, Democrats said Republicans were improperly using a multi candidate campaign committee to run television ads they believe exceed spending limits on each candidate the ad supports for Onondaga County Legislature. Democrats do not know how much the ads cost and cannot produce proof that Republicans are exceeding a limit, except to say their attorneys have researched it. English excused himself to see a doctor about his eye. Onondaga County Democratic Party Chairman Mark English speaks during a press conference Friday outside the Onondaga County Courthouse. He brought up an issue of probable violations of the Election Law by a Republican legislators campaign committee. He warmed up the crowd by shouting out to City Auditor Marty Masterpole, a Democrat, who also appeared to be crashing the press conference, but is not running for office this year. "When you gonna do an audit, Marty?" Dadey shouted after he suggested Masterpole tape the press conference and give a copy to Mayor Stephanie Miner, a Democrat, who has no Republican opponent on Tuesday. Dadey defended the Republican legislators by sharing the documents that set up the multi party committee and saying it is not breaking any rules. Then, Dadey pulled out a stack of paperwork and repeated the old saying about glass houses. He retaliated by raising questions about campaign spending by Democrats running for Onondaga County Legislature and Syracuse City Council. Dadey said City Councilor Khalid Bey and candidate Pamela Hunter, both Democrats, had not filed campaign finance reports since July. Their treasurer said the reports were filed and she does not know why they do not show up on the board of elections website. John Conklin, speaking for the state Board of Elections, said the board has no record of reports from either candidate since July. Dadey also said a campaign finance report for Democratic legislature candidate Lorene Dadey, no relation, shows she exceeded the $99 limit on cash donations from donors who do not have to be named. (Democrats said she added two donors together.) Dadey questioned whether the Onondaga County Democratic Committee was funneling donations that would otherwise be limited if given directly to Maggie Mahoney, a Democrat running against incumbent Onondaga County Legislature Majority Leader Pat Kilmartin. He said he had no proof, but assumed her employer, SEIU 1199, was giving money to the party to spend on her race. Earlier this week week, Democrats complained to the state elections board that the Kilmartin campaign was spending money without disclosing it. Kilmartin said he had no activity before the Oct. 21 filing deadline and fundraising and spending will be disclosed the next time it is required, which is 27 days after the election. Dadey said he and English talked Thursday night about the accusations they were going to make against each other the next day on the steps of the Onondaga County Courthouse.

Sept. 10, 2010 Some runners swear by their pre run stretch as a sure fire way to run better and stronger and reduce their risk of injury in the process. But according to a new study, distance runners who stretch before a run may not perform as well and may spend more energy than runners who skip the stretch. ''Overall, I don't think it's worth it to stretch before a run," researcher Jacob M. Wilson, PhD, assistant professor of exercise science and sport studies at the University of Tampa, tells WebMD. "After a run, if someone is trying to work on flexibility, that's fine." Although his study was done only on male runners who were young and highly trained, Wilson speculates that the findings would apply to recreational runners and to female runners as well. The study is published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. Stretching Before a Run: The StudyWilson evaluated 10 runners, all men, who were on average 25 years old. They were in good shape with a low percent of body fat just under 7%, on average. All runners participated in a 60 minute treadmill run on two different days separated by at least one week. One time, they stretched for 16 minutes before running and the other time they just sat quietly for the same time period. The pre run stretches were static stretching a muscle to the maximum length and holding it and included all the major muscle groups of the lower body. After the stretching or the sitting, the runners did a 30 minute warm up run, then a 30 minute performance run. Each time, the runners were told to run as far as possible during the performance part, but they couldn't see distance or speed on the treadmill display panel. Without stretching, the runners averaged 6 kilometers or 3.7 miles in the half hour performance run, Wilson tells WebMD. "One of the reasons why stretching impairs performance is it probably causes muscle damage," Wilson says, referring to tiny, micro tears. Previous research by others has looked at stretching and the effects on sprinting or vertical jumping, Wilson says. "Ninety percent have found declines in performance." He says that "ours is one of the first to look at stretching and endurance performance, and we saw decrements." Stretching also resulted in a higher number of calories burned. When runners stretched before they ran, they burned 425 calories, on average, during the warm up run. When they didn't stretch, they burned 405 calories, on average.
