“A little goes a long way”: Open your tight hips in just 15 minutes with Yoga With Adriene’s latest routine

“A little goes a long way”: Open your tight hips in just 15 minutes with Yoga With Adriene’s latest routine

[ad_1] This 15-minute yoga sequence from Yoga With Adriene is the perfect remedy for tight hips. Combining gentle stretching and muscle activation, this restorative hip release practice will bring mobility and ease of movement to these joints. The sequence is billed as a morning hip release, and while it would certainly be a lovely way to begin your day, you could also give it a go at other times of day. I plan to use it in the evening after a long day sitting at my desk, and I may try it after a run when my hips are feeling particularly tight from the repetitive movements of running. With more than 12 million subscribers, Yoga With Adriene is hands down the most popular yoga YouTube channel, and for good reason. Adriene Mischler’s mellow, friendly teaching style combined with well-planned sequences make her restorative yoga videos a joy to follow. I enjoy her easygoing and spontaneous approach and always come away from a session feeling deeply relaxed, with a sense of balance restored. Watch the video …

Ultrasonic coffee maker produces the perfect cold-brew in minutes

Ultrasonic coffee maker produces the perfect cold-brew in minutes

[ad_1] Brewing with ultrasound UNSW/Cecilia Duong A high-tech method for producing cold brew coffee that uses ultrasonic waves to extract flavour could cut the time required from 24 hours to just a few minutes. Cold brew coffee, which is made by steeping coffee grounds in cold water, is gaining popularity because it results in a less bitter drink than traditional methods using hot water. But the technique is also a headache for coffee shops as they need refrigerator space and must allow up to 24 hours to make a brew. Now Francisco Trujillo at the University of New South Wales in Sydney and his colleagues have found a unique way to quickly extract a cold shot of coffee – by bombarding the grounds with ultrasonic waves. The resulting drink can be ready in less than 3 minutes. Trujillo says the initial idea for using ultrasound, which smashes up the grounds in a process called acoustic cavitation, was that it might allow the extraction of more antioxidants. This turned out not to be the case, but …

You only need four moves and ten minutes to build a stronger core

You only need four moves and ten minutes to build a stronger core

[ad_1] If you want a stronger core, you can’t just do sit-ups every day. While the floor-based exercise is great for targeting the muscles on the front of your stomach, it misses out other important components of your core. A varied exercise regime is crucial to building comprehensive core strength, which is why we like this workout from NASM-certified personal trainer Sadielee Thomas. It targets a range of core muscles in four moves, including those found along the sides of your abdomen and in your lower back. How to do Sadielee Thomas’ core workout Aim for 12 to 15 reps of each movement, moving through the entire workout two to three times depending on your fitness level. Thomas wears a pair of 2lb ankle weights to increase the difficulty of the workout, which you can also do to challenge yourself. But it’s always best to do the workout without weights first and then progress by adding a load. Benefits of core training The core is a group of muscles within your trunk area that connects …

Spirited Away, the stage spectacular: ‘Every 20 minutes there’s something that would be another play’s finale’ | Stage

[ad_1] The dragon stirs to life as Toby Olié plucks it up by its tail. He spirals it through the air and, quick as ripping off a plaster, tears the creature in two. “Even when he was curled up on the floor,” the puppet designer says, undoing another of the dragon’s joints, “he took up too much space.” Olié sticks the body back together, a little shorter but more malleable now, and the tail wriggles back into being. Best known for his work on War Horse, Olié is holding a miniature prototype for Haku, a boy who transforms into an enormous serpentine dragon. Haku is one of the leading characters in Hayao Miyazaki’s exquisite animation Spirited Away, which has been adapted into a major stage production. For the last four years, the creative team have been conjuring, tweaking and perfecting Miyazaki’s world of gods and monsters in three dimensions. The full-sized dragon, for whom Olié took inspiration from fan art as well as close studies of the film, is now more than four metres long, with 4,000 …

Drake and Kendrick Lamar release diss tracks within minutes of each other alleging domestic violence and secret kids

[ad_1] Sign up to Roisin O’Connor’s free weekly newsletter Now Hear This for the inside track on all things music Get our Now Hear This email for free The ongoing battle between rappers Drake and Kendrick Lamar has reached new heights as they released diss tracks within minutes of each other on Saturday morning (4 May). Thirty-seven-year-old Canadian artist Drake released “Family Matters”, made up of three parts, in which he accuses Lamar’s pro-Black activism of hypocrisy. In the track he also accuses him of alleged domestic violence, and of “begging” the Tupac estate to sue Drake for his use of AI versions of the late rapper in a diss track. He didn’t stop there as he went on to diss A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross, Future, and Metro Boomin. But Lamar hit back within minutes, releasing “Meet The Grahams” his third diss track this week, in which he accused the rapper of harbouring a secret daughter, and of having a series of addictions to gambling, alcohol, drugs, sex, and spending. Drake responded with an Instagram …

Manchester’s Co-op Live arena cancels opening event minutes before start time | UK News

[ad_1] The new Co-op Live in Manchester has been hit by further problems before it’s even fully opened – with tonight’s gig being cancelled as concertgoers were queuing outside. A post shared on social media at 6.40pm read: “Due to a venue-related technical issue, tonight’s A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie show will no longer go ahead. We kindly ask fans to leave the area. “Tickets holders will receive further information in due course.” “We deeply apologise for the significant inconvenience this will cause for many,” it added. Concertgoers were supposed to have been allowed into the arena at 6.30pm and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, real name Julius Dubose, was due to perform at 8pm, according to the venue’s website. In a post Instagram, the US rapper said the cancellation was due to “something [that] happened with the venue while I was at soundcheck”. “We are working on rescheduling in the next few days,” he added. “I’m heated about the situation too, but safety first. “Manchester, I got you. Just stay tuned for further info.” …

Being angry for just 8 minutes could increase risk of a heart attack

Being angry for just 8 minutes could increase risk of a heart attack

[ad_1] Some people have heart attacks during moments of anger smolaw/Shutterstock Getting angry – even for just a few minutes – can change the functioning of your blood vessels, which may make heart attacks and strokes more likely. The finding could explain why some people experience these events during emotional outbursts. This result comes from a study in young adults who seemed to be in good health. The participants were asked to think about past experiences that made them angry while various aspects of their circulatory health were measured. Perhaps unsurprisingly, none of them had a heart attack or stroke during this process, but they did experience impaired blood vessel functioning that has been linked to such outcomes. This suggests that intense emotions could contribute to cardiac events in people who already have poor health, says Daichi Shimbo at Columbia University in New York. Other kinds of research have suggested that heart attacks can be triggered by intense emotional experiences. For instance, one study found that in the hour before a heart attack, people were …

All of the universe’s disorder, explained in 6 minutes

All of the universe’s disorder, explained in 6 minutes

[ad_1] Join physicist Sean Carroll in a thought-provoking exploration of how life emerges in a universe governed by the second law of thermodynamics, which dictates an inevitable increase in disorder. This video delves into the intriguing contradiction between the universe’s natural progression towards chaos and the existence of complex life forms. Carroll introduces the concept of entropy and its role in the “heat death” of the universe, questioning how, against all odds, life could arise from such disorder. Diving into the scientific debate on the origin of life, Carroll discusses the replication-first versus metabolism-first theories and the groundbreaking discovery of hydrothermal vents, which support life’s potential emergence from non-biological processes. This concise exploration highlights the significant strides being made in understanding life’s origins, bridging the gap between physics and biology, and offering a glimpse into one of science’s most captivating unsolved questions. Sean Carroll: I think that once you learn about the second law of thermodynamics, it can be a little depressing. You’ve been told that there’s a fundamental feature of reality: that disorder increases, …
