Retirement could kill you if you don’t start exercising. Try these 6 expert tips to launch a healthy habit.

You know you need to do it, and you promise to start tomorrow. But the road from the sofa to the gym, pool or yoga studio can prove insurmountable when the day dawns. You’re just not into exercise. And you’re not alone.

Only about one in five adults exercise regularly, and that number drops to 12% for people over age 65. Working adults say the main barrier is lack of time. But having more free time, combined with a lack of structure in retirement, can also make committing to exercise a challenge.

“People’s schedules up until retirement have a lot of activity built in,” said Dr. Katie Hill, chief medical officer of Nudj Health, a Pasadena-based company that works with physicians to improve the health of older patients. 

“You’re walking to and from the car, walking around the office, getting out from your desk, going to meetings, going to

As public health emergency ends, pandemic-era support programs have already been fading away

WASHINGTON (AP) — The formal end of the national Public Health Emergency on Thursday is largely a symbolic and psychological step, representing the country’s formal emergence from the COVID-19 pandemic.

But behind the scenes, several core aspects of America’s pandemic-era emergency safety net are also coming to a close, from extra food assistance to automatic reenrollment in Medicaid. While these measures were always designed to be temporary, their expiration is inevitably producing hardship and confusion.

“People are starting to get their jobs back, but it’s still not all the way back and everything is more expensive than before the pandemic,” said Radha Muthiah, president of the Capital Area Food Bank. “The people we serve always seem to be playing catch-up.”

At Thursday’s White House briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre took note of the end of the public health emergency. “The work won’t stop,” she said, with the administration working to

AI Confirms Our Unrealistic Body Ideals

Last week the New York Post reported on what artificial intelligence (AI) purportedly regards as the ideal body type, drawn from the engine’s interpretation of social media (left). The article draws on the Bulimia Project’s research project Scrolling Into Bias which aimed to understand what the “ideal” body types promoted on social media actually look like. If you have spent any time on social media – especially Instagram – it won’t surprise you that the ideal body is one which bears little resemblance to how most flesh-and-blood human beings actually look. Even the most prominent action-movie stars rarely measure up to the gym-bunny, visible muscles which are on display: Both the ideal man and the ideal woman, as pictured in the post, have truly impressive six-packs. The woman pictured is particularly hard to

Wellen taps OpenAI’s GPT for a chatbot that dishes advice on bone health

What are AI chatbots good for? Lovers of sci-fi novels may recall the “librarian,” a character in Neal Stephenson’s 1992 classic “Snow Crash” — not a person but an AI program and virtual library that was capable of interacting with users in a conversational manner. The fictional concept suggested an elegant and accessible solution to the knowledge discovery problem, just so long as the answer to whatever query it was being asked lurked in its training data.

Fast-forward to today and AI chatbots are popping up everywhere. But there’s one major drawback: These general-purpose tools are failing to achieve the high level of response-accuracy envisaged in science fiction. The version of a conversational AI in “Snow Crash” was almost unfailingly helpful and certainly did not routinely “hallucinate” (wrong) answers. When asked something it did not explicitly have information on, it would “fess up” to a knowledge gap, rather than resorting
