SharePrint Related Editor’s Note: Martin Pedersen was the focus of a Geocaching.com video, “Geocaching Diet” in mid-2010. He succeeded in losing more than 30 pounds. But Martin will tell you losing 30 pounds still leaves him with a sense that he hasn’t fully succeeded. His weight loss goal was much loftier. The author of the blog FamilyNavigation.com hoped to lose 100 pounds. We still think his geocaching diet was a success. Martin leads a healthier and more active lifestyle today and he’s kept the weight off. Here is Martin’s story, in his own words. Martin Pedersen, pictured here with his family, spent a year on a geocaching diet. Last year my New Year’s Resolution was to get into shape and lose weight. On January 1st I had no idea how I would do it. A fad diet and a gym membership were not going to work for me and two weeks into January I still did not know how I was going to keep my resolution. There had to be a way I could add enjoyable daily exercise into my busy routine. I wanted to pick an activity that I would crave to do each day and was more enjoyable than the passive activities I had been wasting my time with. Still confused I did what I normally do when I have important things to think about; I went for a hike. The combination of nature, fresh air, and exercise always lifts my spirits and allows me to think clearly.Martin geocaching in British Columbia, CanadaI quickly threw the essentials into my backpack which includes water, notebook, pen, and a GPS receiver. The first three items had been part of my hiking pack for as long as I could remember but the GPSr was a new addition. I had been introduced to geocaching a number of months prior and I was slowly getting obsessed. Even though I was going on a hike to come up with ideas, there was no reason why I couldn’t find a few geocaches along the way.My wife was introduced to geocaching from a friend and when she told me about it she knew that it would be something I would really get into. I love to play outside, I am a true explorer at heart, I enjoy challenges, and I like activities I can quantify. Imagine if I could build an exercise routine around hiking and geocaching.On that most enjoyable geocaching hike I did imagine it and as soon as I got back I went to work to figure out if I could possibly fit regular geocaching into my schedule. After an evening worth of research I explained the concept of a geocaching exercise challenge to my wife. The plan was to find 1000 geocaches in one year while hiking 2500kms and trying to lose as much weight as possible, hopefully up to 100lbs. She always amazes me with the enthusiasm she greets my crazy ideas. Three days later I started the Geocache Diet.I have gone hiking almost every day for 11 months and in that time I have found nearly 900 geocaches while walking the equivalent distance to get from Canada to Mexico (taking the scenic route of course). I have hiked through beautiful forests, past waterfalls, alpine lakes and beaches. I have walked back-country roads, urban streets, bicycle paths, plus a fair bit of bushwhacking.Many of the caches I have found had parking right next to them but instead of simply driving from location to location I would always link a few together on a circle walk through town. My family likes caching and they joined me on as many outings as we could manage but a lot of the time I was alone. I have found caches in all types of weather including pouring rain, wind storms, and in the snow. I have not lost as much weight as I would have liked but I have been rewarded with the benefits of regular exercise. This challenge has succeeded in getting me outside to work up a sweat daily where other attempts have failed. The main reason that this challenge worked was that it was just too much fun. Geocaching is such an enjoyable, inexpensive, accessible, and inclusive activity which everyone can do and that makes it a perfect complement to regular exercise.Martin geocaching with his familyThe hardest part of doing any exercise challenge is making the time commitment. Before starting this challenge I looked at my schedule and wrote down everything I needed to do each week (like work, family time, and sleep).I found that, even though I am a busy person, by cutting out activities like watching TV I had enough time to complete this challenge. I did not cut out anything that I enjoyed doing more than hiking and geocaching and I definitely have not cut into family time. My year is almost up but I still have so many trails to hike, so many caches to find, and so many places to discover. I will just have to continue to include geocaching into a healthy lifestyle and to reach my ideal weight and fitness level.Share with your Friends:More Geocaching DietBy: Martin Pedersen

Vladivostok (Russia): Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Zvezda shipbuilding complex along with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday and interacted with the management and workers of the shipyard. Modi, who arrived in Russia on a two-day visit during which he will hold summit talks with President Putin and attend the Eastern Economic Forum, is the first Indian prime minister to visit to the Russian Far East Region. During his visit to the shipyard, Prime Minister Modi was accompanied by President Putin. The two leaders hugged and shook hands before their departure for Zvezda shipyard.

PM @narendramodi and Russian President Putin spending quality time together on board a ship on their way to ‘Zvezda’ Shipbuilding Complex,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted. At the shipyard, Modi interacted with the management and workers of the plant. “PM @narendramodi and President Putin visited the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex. Newer areas of collaboration such as shipbuilding offer opportunities for diversifying the strong India- Russia economic ties,” Kumar tweeted. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday In the future, the ships built at that shipyard “will be used to deliver Russian oil and liquefied natural gas to world markets, including India,” President Putin’s aide Yuri Ushakov was quoted as saying by Tass news agency. The Zvezda shipyard is being set up on the base of the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Center by a consortium of Rosneft, Rosneftegaz and Gazprombank. The shipyard will produce heavy tonnage ships, offshore platform elements, ice-class vessels, special vessels, and other marine equipment, according to the Russian news agency. After their visit to the shipyard, the two leader will hold the 20th India-Russia Annual Summit on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum, which Russia has hosted since 2015 to boost partnerships with Asian countries. “A personal chemistry underlining a strong partnership President Putin welcomes PM @narendramodi in #Vladivostok for their 30th meeting. India-Russia relationship goes beyond relations between two capitals and are now at the cusp of expanding to new frontiers,” Kumar tweeted. In the summit talks, the two leaders are expected to discuss a number of key regional issues, including the Afghan peace process and situation in the Gulf region. Both sides are expected to firm up a five-year roadmap 2019-2024 laying out possibilities of cooperation in oil and gas sector, in terms of exploration and exploitation, and purchase. At present, India relies heavily on the Gulf region for its energy requirement. Gokhale said India is looking at Russia as a major source of hydrocarbons so as to end its complete dependency on the Gulf region. They are also expected to explore ways to enhance cooperation while working in multilateral organisations like Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China and South Africa). Earlier, Modi was warmly welcomed at the Vladivostok airport on his third bilateral visit to Russia. He received a guard of honour at the airport. Ahead of his visit to Russia, Modi said he looked forward to discussing regional and international issues of mutual interest with President Putin. “I look forward to discussing with my friend President Putin the entire gamut of our bilateral partnership as well as regional and international issues of mutual interest,” he said in his departure statement in New Delhi. “I also look forward to meeting other global leaders attending the Eastern Economic Forum, and interacting with Indian Industry and business representatives participating in it,” Modi said. The forum focuses on development of business and investment opportunities in the Russian Far East Region, and presents enormous potential for developing close and mutually beneficial cooperation between India and Russia in the region. In an interview with Russia’s state-run TASS news agency ahead of his visit, Modi said he shared a “special chemistry” with the Russian President and is keen on technology transfers so that the two sides can make military equipment in India at cheaper rates for export to third countries. “I am confident that this visit will give a new vector, new energy and a new impetus to the relations between our countries,” Modi said. Russia and India are set to sign about 15 documents, including some in the military-technical sectors, within the framework of the 20th Russian-Indian summit that will take place on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF), a Tass report said.
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Harry’s has carved out a niche selling men shaving razors direct to their doors, elbowing in on an industry long dominated by names like Gillette and Schick.In the process, the company says it found that 1 million women were using its products for their shaving needs.So its logical next step is Flamingo, a direct-to-consumer hair removal and body-care brand for women that launches Tuesday.Flamingo’s leaders say their aim is to make women more comfortable talking about shaving and waxing.“We want to normalize the fact that women might have hair here, or there, and if they choose to remove it, we want to support that,” Allie Melnick, the general manager for Flamingo says in an interview with The Associated Press.Flamingo is the first brand to emerge from Harry’s Labs, an offshoot of the company that has chipped away at the market share of industry giant Gillette, capitalizing on consumer frustration with pricey razors. Harry’s received $112 million in new funding earlier this year to develop new brands, with a vision to becoming a major consumer-products company to compete with the likes of Gillette parent Proctor & Gamble.Flamingo offers a five-blade razor, waxing kits, shaving gel and body lotion for women. The products will be sold on its own direct-to-consumer website , a space where the brand’s leaders Brittania Boey and Melnick hope to open frank conversations about women and body hair.The duo says Harry’s internal research shows nearly all U.S. women choose to shave or wax off some of their body hair. They say Flamingo wants to offer products and tips to help women do that while talking openly about furry toes, back hair and fuzzy upper lips.Harry’s launched as a direct-to-consumer company in 2013. It has since expanded into body care for men and now sells its products in Target and Walmart. Along with rival Dollar Shave Club, the company shook up the $2.8 billion U.S. men’s shaving industry, forcing Gillette to slash its razor prices and revamp its marketing strategy to stem a decline in market share.Harry’s remains a relatively small player, with 2 per cent of the market, according to Euromonitor International market research firm. But its direct-to-consumer model has helped create a sense of intimacy with its customer base that bigger brands find hard to replicate.Consumers have a growing appetite for tailored offerings that make small companies appealing, according to a recent report from management consulting firm Bain & Co., which cited both Harry’s and Dollar Shave Clubs as examples. Chobani’s and Noosa’s have similarly disrupted the yogurt industry, while digital upstarts like Casper’s helped drive Mattress Firm into bankruptcy.Flamingo hopes for the same success in the $1 billion U.S. women’s shaving industry, where Gillette holds 50 per cent of the market, according to Euromonitor. The new brand will compete in a more fractured landscape than the one Harry’s encountered for men’s shavers five years ago.Several new online brands have already seized attention, if not yet significant market share.Among them are Angel Shave Club, which donates part of its sales to the Malala Fund to promote education for girls abroad. The start-up Billie made a splash since launching last year with ads showing body hair — including a gif of a woman shaving her toe — while declaring war on the “pink tax,” the notion that women typically pay more than men for the same product.“It is likely that more women’s shave clubs will enter the U.S. market before one or two players emerge on top,” Kayla Villena, senior analyst at Euromonitor International, said in a recent report that preceded Flamingo’s launch.Melnick and Boey said more than 1 million women have bought Harry’s products, making Flamingo a logical first choice for the company’s newest brand.“My wife uses Harry’s now, too. She was stealing mine, so I got her one,” said Cody Chastain, a 42-year-old Roseville, California, man who likes Harry’s because of the convenience of its delivery service.Flamingo mirrors Harry’s in pricing and the simplicity of its offerings. It has one five-blade razor with a handle that comes in three different colours, priced at $9. Cartridge replacements are $2.25 per blade. It’s a deliberate contrast to the array of women’s razors from Gillette and No. 2 player Schick, which range from disposable razors for around $1 a piece to higher-end razors at 4$ or $5 per blade replacement.One notable difference separates Flamingo from the men’s razors Harry’s offers. Flamingo will offer its products a-la-carte only because women’s shaving routines vary too widely for subscription plans, Melnick says. Some shave only during warm seasons. Other might not bother shaving their legs if they are not in a romantic relationship. And, she says, women are very particular about which part of their body to shave or wax.Melnick has clearly gotten comfortable talking about her own lifelong battle with body hair.“I keep my arm hair, except when I demonstrate our wax strip. But I choose to remove my toe hair,” she says. “It’s all very personal.”

If you are a bullying boss, your employees are more likely to be less committed to their work, take longer breaks or come in late without notice, finds a study. The study led by researchers from the Portland State University in Oregon, US, showed that a bullying boss can decrease “organisational citizenship behaviour”, or the voluntary extras one does that are not part of the job responsibilities. On the other hand, the study also reveled that he/she increases “counterproductive work behaviour”, such as sabotage at work, coming into work late, taking longer-than-allowed breaks, doing tasks incorrectly or withholding effort, all of which can affect the team and co-workers. Also Read – An income drop can harm brain”The findings highlight the consequences of abusive supervision, which is becoming increasingly common in workplaces,” said Liu-Qin Yang, Associate Professor at the University. The study, published in the Journal of Management, attributes negative work behaviour to either perceptions of injustice or work stress. In response to perceptions of injustice, the employees are more likely to purposely withhold from the unpaid extras that help the organisation, like helping co-workers with problems or attending meetings that are not mandatory. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardHaving an abusive boss can also lead to work stress, which reduces an employee’s ability to control negative behaviour or contribute to the organisation in a positive way. “Stress is sometimes uncontrollable. You don’t sleep well, so you come in late or take a longer break, lash out at your co-workers or disobey instructions,” Yang further added. “But justice is more rational. Something isn’t fair, so you’re purposely not going to help other people or when the boss asks if anyone can come in on a Saturday to work, you don’t volunteer.” The researchers of the study have highly recommended that organisations should take measures to reduce or curb abusive supervision. Regular training programmes to help supervisors learn and adopt more effective interpersonal and management skills, implementing fair policies as well as conducting stress management training can help employees, they suggested.
OSU cornerback coach Kerry Coombs and then-freshman cornerback Denzel Ward (12) celebrate after a tackle by Ward during a game against Rutgers on Oct. 24 at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. Credit: Lantern file photoRecruit rankings mean everything when college football teams are looking for fresh talent, but they mean little when it comes time to suit up and get to work. For the young secondary coming in to fill the shoes of outgoing talents for Ohio State, the journey has just begun.Co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano met with the media for the first time this season, and had high praise for both freshman cornerbacks Shaun Wade and Jeffrey Okudah. Although he liked what he saw out of the new faces in the secondary, he said there’s a certain adjustment that takes time.“Well there’s two things I think,” Schiano said. “The volume of football, as far as it’s much different than high school. All the details that go into playing. It’s not, you know, go cover him. And then, the other thing is the speed of the game and the tempo of the game and the speed of the players you’re trying to defend. But I can tell you that it’s real early, but those are some special guys.”Okudah was clocked running at 23.2 miles per hour at one point during winter workouts, as evident by his name and speed being flashed across the giant screen in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center indoor practice field. He, along with Wade and sophomore transfer Kendall Sheffield all have a chance at contributing significant playing time in 2017.Schiano stressed on multiple occasions that it’s still far too early to tell who will be playing where, and how often.“I think it’s too early to judge,” he said. “I’m very impressed with them, as I said. Very athletic guys. Let’s let them play, and let’s see how it goes. Without a doubt, your initial impression is, really talented guys.”OSU coach Urban Meyer, who first met with the media on Tuesday, said he sees lots of promise in his young players at all positions. However, replacing talents like those of the three departing defensive backs is going to be a monumental challenge.Marshon Lattimore and Malik Hooker broke out as two of the best players at their respective positions in all of college football last season, and Gareon Conley had a productive career while donning the scarlet and gray. Both Schiano and Meyer said a rotation with a blend of returning players and new players will be key to success in the pass defense.“I think the way we play defense, we’d like to do that,” Meyer said. “We have (redshirt sophomore) Damon Arnette, and (junior) Denzel Ward are the only guys who have ever played for us right now. You’ve got (sophomore) Rodjay Burns. We moved (redshirt freshman) Wayne Davis to safety. You’ve got these four corners that just stepped out there today that looked pretty good. We’d like to play three or four — we’d like to play more than three or four. We learned a lesson. That was as good of production as we’ve had out of corners anywhere we’ve been. Obviously you’ve got great players, but what we ask those guys to do, it’s a track meet for four hours. If you can (get) a little rotation in there, it’s going to be much better.”Both Arnette and Ward played in 13 games last season, but the former enjoyed a majority of the playing time. Although Arnette comes in as one of the most experienced corners, he struggled at times last season to stay with receivers and read routes correctly.Schiano said he and cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs will be looking closely at who can separate themselves from the pack, and who can earn a spot in the secondary rotation.“Kerry was saying he likes all the depth at the position,” Schiano said. “But, again, the cream’s gotta rise to the top because we have one guy who really played meaningful reps at the corner position.”

Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai City Council will look at an ordinance at their meeting on Wednesday that would authorize the City Manager to accept a donation in order to establish a Bush Doctor’s Historic Cabin/Museum from Dr. Peter Hansen and the Kenai Community Foundation. Dr. Hansen is in the process of constructing a Bush Doctor’s Historic Cabin to display the antique medical equipment for public viewing. A fund has been established with the Kenai Community Foundation to allow for future contributions for capital improvements and maintenance, according to the ordinance. Dr. Hansen in a letter to the council, “the intent is to move this cabin, which is being constructed in Nikiski, into the City in late May or early June this year and place it on a sauna tube foundation near the Visitor’s Center.” The Kenai City Council will vote at their meeting on Wednesday on whether or not the City Manager will accept the donation. In 1967, Dr. Hansen moved to Kenai, which at the time had no hospital in the area. He began practicing medicine, bringing with him used medical equipment he had acquired in Juneau. The antique medical equipment has been saved and most recently stored by the City of Kenai. The donation of $103,000 is intended to cover the costs of the construction project involved in this donation, including the funding for construction of the cabin, preparation of the site, and moving and setting up the cabin and antique medical equipment at the site.
