Smartphones spoil your posture


The man was conceived to stand upright, but modern technologies are directly forcing us to bow their heads before them. Look around and you will see a lot of people who spend their days bending over the small screen of the smartphone - they are looking at it without looking up.

We spend an average of 2 to 4 hours a day, tilting the neck at an unnatural angle to view photos, read email or text on your phone *. The craze for social networks has led to an epidemic of poor posture due to smartphones.

The head of an adult weighs an average of 5 kg - provided that it is slightly elevated or in a neutral position. The stronger we tilt the neck, the heavier our skull becomes - the force of gravity triggers. For example, by tilting the neck at an angle of 60 degrees to consider Selfie in the phone, you create a load of 30 kg in the cervical spine. Approximately so much weighs a seven-year-old child.

"The load on the spine increases several times when we tilt the head from different angles,"Says Dr. Kenneth Hansraj, head of the spine surgery department at the Center for Surgery and Rehabilitation of the Back in New York and the head of the study published in the journal Surgical Technology International. The inclination of the head by 15 degrees "adds" to the spine 14 kg of load, 30 degrees - 20 kg, and the angle of 45 degrees - almost 25 kg of weight.

"As a result, the natural curve of the cervical region is lost, leading to poor posture, early wear, tears and other problems with the spine," explains Hansray.

It's not a secret that proper posture affects not only the back, but also the entire body as a whole. Studies have shown that good posture raises the level of the serotonin joy hormone and lowers the hormone level of cortisol stress. On the contrary, stooping leads to problems with physical and emotional well-being - provokes headache, depression, bowel problems and heart disease, not to mention chronic back pain.

That's why Hansray and his colleagues advise to closely monitor the position of the neck and try not to tilt it very much, using a smartphone. "Looking at yourself in the mirror, pay attention to the fact,(if you draw a conditional line, it should be parallel to the shoulder line), and the shoulder blades (the so-called "angel wings") were set back, "says Hansray. This is the optimal position for our spine and the guarantee of good posture.

Escape from the cage


Limit pulse, cotton feet, sweat stream, fire lungs and "reasonable" thoughts: why the hell are you running, how much can you force yourself, who and what are you trying to prove, Vova? And all this at a ridiculous mark of 10 km - soon after it I just got into the taste and started to have fun. Now 10 km were given to me with a terrible scratch.

I did not run a month after the big toe fracture on football. When this happened, most of all I was upset because of the Moscow marathon, which I'm going to run in September. A month of gypsum and lack of training put at risk the possibility of a good result. The last marathon in Berlin, I ran for 3 hours and 50 minutes. In Moscow, set a goal - "run out" of 3.30. Two months before the break I ran volumes. I brought the monthly mileage to 300. And now you need to start all over again.

Why run ?! Why run for 2-3 hours almost every day? Why not just 30 minutes of running for health?

Dozens of times I was asked this question by friends, thousands of times I asked it myself. Especially when the forces end, the temperature is 35 degrees, you are running the second hour along the Volga steppe, you are still waiting for the reverse ten-kilometer.Or at a marathon in Berlin after the 38th kilometer, when the brain refuses to accept what is happening, the eyes cloud with haze, to the left and right of you fall hefty muzhiks, someone is provided with medical help, and someone just quietly descends from a distance. And you run and run, and now the Brandenburg Gate, and ahead of another 195 meters - and they are the most terrible.

read also Walk and (or) run

I do not have a clear and clear answer to the question of why I'm running. In dozens of articles and books about running you can find a suitable person for you personally. And about the health benefits, and about the pleasure of endorphins, and about meditation, searching for yourself and much more.

Personally, I started running a couple of years ago when I stopped smoking. First, while you run, you do not want to smoke at all, and you do not want to smoke an hour before and one hour after. In addition, I wanted to quickly cleanse my body of the effects of twenty-five years of tobacco use.

Friends gave birth to a cardiac sensor to the phone - you can watch the pulse during the run (as it turned out, this is the most important for proper training), distance, own speed and so on. And after a month of running, I was surprised to find that I ran 12 km unthinkable for me. Memory kept the horrors of the march-throws at military gatherings and races in the sports camp.I was sure that I could not do it. That running is boring, tedious, hard, not reckless and not romantic. The verdict: running is not for me. Let others run, the guys are stronger and simpler. So I thought.

These 12 km did not fit into my picture of the world.

I started to take an interest in running, reading, took some lessons from a professional coach, bought good equipment, began to train properly and after a couple of months ran my first half marathon 21.1 km with a good result for my age. Running was easy and at times pleasant!

Suddenly I realized that I, the all-knowing intellectual, were guided by primitive stereotypes about the limitations of my own abilities, which tightly confused the brain. The brain, in turn, keeps the body in strict control and does not allow it to develop. The reverse process also works. If I "believe" in my limitations, then this faith works on all levels: physical, mental, and spiritual. It was the cage into which I put myself.

I wanted to get out of the cage! But one thing to understand the head, the other - to believe and take concrete steps. The brain required proof. I accepted the challenge. I needed to surprise myself! And I thought about the marathon.

Marathon runners were crazy for me from the TV, I never checked their competitions. It's not about me. Never!

take the tests

Which sport suits you best?

Excellent! Decision is made! I realized that when I run a marathon, I can believe in the limitlessness of my abilities. It will escape from the cage.

Six months was spent on training. I began to pay attention to what and when I eat. It turned out that food affects the running results. It would seem that running takes a lot of time. But the paradoxical image of time was growing. I began to have more time and more productive spending the day, not to mention energy, vitality and a good mood.

Running became a temporary axis, on which events, events, meetings, people, opportunities were being hammered. It turned out that on the run the most innovative ideas came to me. The main thing is to have time to write them down. It turned out that you can meditate on the run, you can enjoy nature, you can more effectively get acquainted with foreign cities, take photos, listen to music, audiobooks, and chat on the phone.

I can not run like this. It is important for me that there is a purpose. Even if conditional. For example, "run out" a marathon from 3.30.By and large, it does not matter whether I can or not, but as long as I strive for the goal - I'm moving. And running, like a tractor, drags my life with me.

Running is a model of life. And it has not only pleasures. This is an existential challenge, a test. When there is no strength and the body yells for mercy, the space suddenly starts to help, it becomes easy to run further. Running helps to be sensitive to the signals of your own body and, although rarely, but to exercise sanity when you need to slow down your speed to get your heart beat or rest. That is, jogging is a way of knowing both oneself and the world.

There is another important motive. I can not accept the tradition prevalent in modern cities to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for playing sports in fitness centers. And running is a conditionally free sport. A pair of good sneakers and go!

When I returned with a run, I was waiting for an incredible surprise at home - turned on the hot water! What else is needed for happiness?

"Monte Cristo": final performances


The musical "Monte Cristo" is the first completely original Russian performance created on the basis of the world classical work. The return of Monte Cristo in 2015 was due to the persistent requests of the audience. "We found the opportunity to combine two large-scale projects on the stage of the Operetta Theater - the musicals" Monte Cristo "and" The Count of the Eagles, "the producers Vladimir Tartakovsky and Alexei Bolonin told. - The decision to return the "Monte Cristo" caused great excitement. We know that even today the musical in Moscow is very much awaited, it arouses great spectator interest. We hope that for new audiences, "Monte Cristo" will become as cultic as it became for thousands of fans from all over the world. "

On the stage again there will be grandiose scenery-transformers, with the help of which space turns into a ballroom, then to the castle of If, then to the sails of an entire armada of smugglers' ships. The costumes of actors and ballet dancers combine the spirit of Dumas and modern chic "haute couture". To create them, hundreds of meters of brocade, silk, velvet and a kilometer of colored ribbons were used.The image of the nineteenth century attires complements a great many spectacular accessories: bracelets, belts, scarves, ornaments, gloves and masks.

"Very ingenious, very well-designed scenography. Remarkably, the transformation of scenery was invented - I'm also an architect by education, so I can appreciate it, "said director Vladimir Khotinenko.

The success of Monte Cristo on the Moscow stage showed that the Russian musical, delivered at the highest professional level, can be competitive with world projects and even surpass them.

6 mobile applications that allow you to get closer


Help in creating a lasting and harmonious union can not only books on applied psychology and the advice of experienced people: sometimes it's much more successful make applications that can be installed on your smartphone. Modern technologies allow partners to feel intimacy, even if they rarely see, tell them what they are doing wrong, and even encourage them to invite each other to a movie or restaurant.

Kahnoodle

She did not make a scene when he once again stayed at work, 10 points. He washed the dishes - 20 points. Perhaps, people conduct such a subconscious calculation of moral feats, which they make during the day their second halves - but to put these calculations on a truly mathematical level will be possible except that a computer program. Love, too, is amenable to gaming, and Kahnoodle is the best evidence of this: involving a young man and a girl in the kudos earning competition (the so-called glasses they display each other daily), the application allows each partner to understand how happy the other half is.The program also allows you to set goals for the partner ("I want you to learn how to use deodorant") or for both ("We want to live a month without quarrels"), for which players receive badges. For a certain number of badges, prizes are awarded, which partners reward each other and themselves - a romantic dinner or a night of unforgettable passion.

In the era of social networks, when any spoken word instantly becomes the property of dozens of readers, the developers of Duet decided to return to online conversation the true intimacy. Duet is a "secret" that only you can know: an instant messenger in which you can correspond only with your loved one. The program partly takes on the task of maintaining relationships - for example, it offers you various options for joint leisure activities - go to the movies, skate in the park ... It's even surprising how old the ways to become closer have become forgotten. Duet also allows you to send short video messages. As the developers promise, in the future there will be an opportunity to create an archive in which all your correspondence will be stored for many years,photo albums with joint photos and any other information related to the history of your relationship.

TheIceBreak

The ice has begun to move, gentlemen of the jury, - TheIceBreak mobile application allows you to chase the cold breath of winter that hovers over your relationship. The application encourages partners to learn secret thoughts of each other - for example, you can ask each other various intimate questions: what do you dream about, what would you like to try? Some questions are asked of both partners by the application itself. Unfortunately, to the fullest, TheIceBreak works only in the US, where users can exchange points, which the application awards for answers to questions they asked, for discounts in restaurants. The program also allows you to evaluate each other on various parameters - for example, to show the partner points for support in difficult times. And the option "Wall" makes it possible to decorate the joint virtual space with photos and inscriptions.

Tokii

This mobile application is the world's first platform for managing ... relationships, allowing them to be taken to a new level. Sometimes people can live together for ten years and do not really know each other.This problem and tries to fix the application that offers a set of tools that allow you to see what's going on in the soul of another. So, MoodMeter gives a chance to understand what the partner feels and thinks - the application encourages the young man and the girl from time to time to send each other mini-characteristics of their mood and state. And the DiscoveryGames option allows you to compare the partner's relationship to a particular event with its own. The smart option constantly collects and analyzes statistics - and one day will tell you what you and your partner are like, and what's different. It is curious that the team that developed Tokii further expanded the scope of its interactive projects: now on the site www.tokii.com there are a lot of psychological tests that let you know if you are a good person, where you can find true love and what exactly in life can bring you happiness.

Multimedia technology has long given the opportunity to see and hear your loved one, even if you are separated by thousands of kilometers. But it was impossible to feel his touch till now.Until this problem was finally solved by Feel Me application - in real time it displays points on the smartphone screen, which your loved one touches. If you touch these points with your fingers, they will glow, and the smartphone will gently vibrate. And although in reality each of you touches the screen of your own smartphone, there is a feeling of the portal in space - your fingers for a moment touched. This is more feasible than megabytes of words in online correspondence.

Do you think she did the right thing when she arranged a scene for him because he just looked at another girl? And did he act rightly, having decided to cancel a joint vacation for the sake of the prospect of earning a little money for the family? Couples rarely find out these controversial issues themselves, and when they become the property of mother-in-law and mother-in-law, cousins ​​of nephews and cousins, everything becomes even more confusing - after all, "support groups" usually take the position of those with whom they are more closely related. To achieve relative impartiality in such disputes is not easy - and this is where Sidetaker can help. This is both an application and a small social network created for it: publishing its problem on its pages, a couple creates a poll,in which all registered users can take part. They not only vote for that of partners who, in their opinion, are right, but also give arguments in favor of their choice. However, as noted by those who used this service, the removal of litter from the hut does not always smooth out the quarrel - sometimes the Internet discussion makes it flare up with renewed vigor.

The man was conceived to stand upright, but modern technologies are directly forcing us to bow their heads before them. Look around and you will see a lot of people who spend their days bending over the small screen of the smartphone - they are looking at it without looking up.

We spend an average of 2 to 4 hours a day, tilting the neck at an unnatural angle to view photos, read email or text on your phone *. The craze for social networks has led to an epidemic of poor posture due to smartphones.

The head of an adult weighs an average of 5 kg - provided that it is slightly elevated or in a neutral position. The stronger we tilt the neck, the heavier our skull becomes - the force of gravity triggers. For example, by tilting the neck at an angle of 60 degrees to consider Selfie in the phone, you create a load of 30 kg in the cervical spine. Approximately so much weighs a seven-year-old child.

"The load on the spine increases several times when we tilt the head from different angles,"Says Dr. Kenneth Hansraj, head of the spine surgery department at the Center for Surgery and Rehabilitation of the Back in New York and the head of the study published in the journal Surgical Technology International. The inclination of the head by 15 degrees "adds" to the spine 14 kg of load, 30 degrees - 20 kg, and the angle of 45 degrees - almost 25 kg of weight.

"As a result, the natural curve of the cervical region is lost, leading to poor posture, early wear, tears and other problems with the spine," explains Hansray.

It's not a secret that proper posture affects not only the back, but also the entire body as a whole. Studies have shown that good posture raises the level of the serotonin joy hormone and lowers the hormone level of cortisol stress. On the contrary, stooping leads to problems with physical and emotional well-being - provokes headache, depression, bowel problems and heart disease, not to mention chronic back pain.

That's why Hansray and his colleagues advise to closely monitor the position of the neck and try not to tilt it very much, using a smartphone. "Looking at yourself in the mirror, pay attention to the fact,(if you draw a conditional line, it should be parallel to the shoulder line), and the shoulder blades (the so-called "angel wings") were set back, "says Hansray. This is the optimal position for our spine and the guarantee of good posture.
