Today’s Workout: Inner thigh crossover pulse will tone you up

A little bit of many things go a long way, like salt in a recipe, or kindness to a stranger. Even small and simple movements in our fitness can pack a punch without major exertion. Our larger movements are what builds our muscles typically, but the smaller, controlled execution gives us tone. Our move today is an inner thigh crossover pulse. This exercise will be focused on the inner thigh, and you won’t need any extra equipment for this move other than a wall or counter top if your balance is compromised. Begin this pulsing exercise by standing tall, holding your chest high, and engaging your midsection for stability. Shift your weight to one leg, and lift your free leg slightly in front of your body keeping your foot flexed. Position your hands on your hips, or on a fixed subject if you feel unsteady, and prepare for movement. Start your pulsing motion by guiding the heel of your free leg slightly (in front), across your stabilizing leg. Imagine kicking a soccer ball with...

Susan Sparks: Check your weapons at the door

I had an unfortunate collision on my motorcycle... with a bug. You might think something like, “Aww, how sad for the bug,” but in fact, I was the one that ended up visiting a local hospital. Although the bug incident was jarring, the large sign at the entrance of the clinic - “Check Your Weapons at the Door” - was more alarming. Who knew that in seeing a doctor, one needed to come packing heat?
The bug injury healed, but I’ve never forgotten that sign, and over time, I have decided that the message “check your weapons at the door” is great advice for life.
There are a lot of weapons floating around these days. On the international scene, there are nukes, drone strikes and WMDs (weapons of mass destruction). In the United States, there’s the scourge of automatic weapons. But there’s also an equally scary and perhaps even more dangerous weapon at large in the world: the human tongue.

Book Notes: Exploring a brave, new world in ‘The Warehouse’

“The Warehouse” By Rob Hart. Crown, New York, August 2019. 368 pages. $27.
One of the most appealing things about “The Warehouse,” the new near-future, near-dystopian thriller by Rob Hart, is its familiarity. Rob Hart’s version of the United States is just over the next ridge, a place that’s hotter, drier, lesser, but not really so different. It’s as if you turned a page, fell asleep and woke up to find yourself in this new place whose evolution feels perfectly logical.
Gibson Wells has built 50 complexes, each a MotherCloud, where people live and work. There’s one in every state and each one accommodates hundreds of thousands of workers in need of the work but resentful of the circumstances. Each Cloud resembles a massive Amazon-type warehouse expanded to include medical facilities, restaurants, bars and living quarters akin to a high-end airport terminal. It takes a long time to walk most places.

Lost in Suburbia classic: Working on my backhand

I am the queen of the backhanded compliment. Naturally, I don’t give them … I receive them. More accurately, I seem to attract them, like bugs to a windshield; which is pretty much how I feel after I receive one. For some reason, the compliments people give me are always followed by words like “for,” as in, “You look really good … for someone who’s had two children,” or “You look so young … for someone your age.”
Overall, I think most people are pretty cautious about giving backhanded compliments. You can always count on your kids, however, to speak the truth and knock your self-esteem down a few pegs.
Such was the case one morning while I was getting ready in the bathroom and I overheard the kids talking in the hall.
“Where’s mom,” asked my son. “We’re gonna be late for school.”
