What is Strength Training and Can It Help Cancer Patients?

Key Takeaway:  Research shows that strength training, a type of exercise that can build muscle mass, can improve health in cancer patients. Strength training is a type of exercise in which one uses resistance to force the muscles to contract to build strength. Resistance for strengthening can come from a person’s own body weight or from gym equipment. We spoke to Nancy Campbell, MS, an exercise physiologist at Dana-Farber’s Leonard P. Zakim Center for Integrative Therapies, who offers exercise consults to cancer patients and survivors. Campbell: Yes. The American College of Sports Medicine offers a cancer-specific certification for trainers, though the amount of certified trainers in the state is minimal at the moment. ACSM has recently revamped their guidelines on exercise and offers a list of resources for cancer patients. Another great resource for training is Livestrong at the YMCA. Livestrong offers a training program for cancer patients and survivors, which takes place at YMCAs across the country. The trainers are knowledgeable on various cancers and exercises that will be most beneficial for different patients. Courses run twice a week for 12 weeks at no cost. At Dana-Fa...

ISE Review 2020: Networking, connections and signal management

For the final part of our ISE 2020 review, we take a tour of some of the highlights fro those offering networking, connections and signal management. Kordz unveiled a new PRS Series CAT6A Network Patch Cord offering a slim-profile, high performance cable designed to deliver a strong, reliable connection for high-bandwidth AV and smart home installations.  “On many projects, the network patch cord connection can be a common source of failure and massive frustration for professional home integrators,” comments James Chen, Managing Director and head of Engineering at Kordz. “Connectivity Assured is the principle that underpins the design and manufacture of every Kordz product. This new CAT6A Network Patch Cord is a great example of this commitment in practice as our patent pending design dramatically reduces any issues with the RJ45 latching tab breaking or coming free under stress.”  On display for the first time at ISE 2020, the Kordz PRS Series CAT6A Network Patch Cord is a stranded 28 American Wire Gauge (AWG) U/FTP Category 6A shielded cable, suitable for 10 Gbps and POE++ rated networks.

HAAH Automotive Holdings a 2020 echo of Max Hoffman AN-LOGO-BLUE AN-LOGO-BLUE

Anyone in the U.S. who makes a living off of BMW, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz or most other European brands owes a huge debt of gratitude to Max Hoffman. Hoffman was the Austrian race car driver turned entrepreneur who became a funnel for European cars into the United States after World War II. His sense for partnership and product (“His insistence on roll-up windows, a proper soft top and a functioning heater gave the Alfa [Giulietta Spider] an advantage over its British competition,” the New York Times wrote in a 2007 retrospective) allowed those companies to get their footing until they became big enough or savvy enough to stand on their own. But we may now be seeing a modern-day reincarnation in the form of HAAH Automotive Holdings and its chief cheerleader and CEO, Duke Hale. That became clear this month at the NADA Show, where for the second time in as many years Hale, 70, and his team of similarly seasoned executives signed up dealers to sell Chinese cars in the United States. Last year, it was Zotye USA, in a forlorn corner of a San Francisco convention center annex. This year — in the heart of the main exhibition area in Las Vegas — it was Vantas, a new brand ...

Ordway lands $10M Series A to bridge gap between sales and finance

Ordway, a Washington, DC startup, is building a platform to deal with all of the stuff that happens after you make sale. It starts with the order and goes all the way to revenue as a one-time payment or recurring subscription. Today the company announced a $10 million Series A. CRV led the round with participation from Clocktower Ventures and existing investors Lerer Hippeau and Revolution Rise of the Rest fund. The company has now raised a total of $12.5 million, according to Crunchbase data. Sameer Gulati, founder and CEO at Ordway, says the company wanted to build a flexible tool to sit between the CRM and financial systems of a company. “So in that sense, we do everything for post-sales from billing automation, payment collection, revenue recognition, analytics, all the way to cash. We have a streamlined workflow for managing order to revenue,” Gulati told TechCrunch. It sounds a lot like the Quote-to-Cash space where companies like Apttus (acquired by Thoma Bravo in 2018) or SteelBrick (acquired by Salesforce in 2015) tried to stake a claim, but Gulati says while his company’s solution handles the quote-to-cash workflow, it can do much more than that. “We absolutely can han...

It’s said that clean hands don’t grow potatoes, though it could be argued that gloves were

It’s said that clean hands don’t grow potatoes, though it could be argued that gloves were invented for the very purpose of keeping one’s hands clean in the dirty work. The two seconds it takes to glove up prevents a lot of scrubbing later. Apply the wisdom of gloves to every project under the Aquarius sun, which is all about working smart. ARIES (March 21-April 19). The world is a sticky place filled with honey pots, tar pits and a wide variety of flytraps. It’s very easy to get stuck. Keep moving. Action makes you hard to trap. Movement opens potential. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). So much is going right for you! Take stock. List at least five and feel your mood lift. Staying grateful is to your spiritual health as staying fit is to your physical health. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Take a break from self-improvement.

Dow announced the winners of the 2019 Awards for Packaging Innovation. The nine Diamond Award Finalists

Dow announced the winners of the 2019 Awards for Packaging Innovation. The nine Diamond Award Finalists are varied and cover very different verticals, but a simultaneously practical and altruistic attitude toward sustainability is a common thread that unites them. The ultimate Diamond Award winner among the fine group of Diamond Award Finalists was the Functional Film Complex PET Bottle from Japan’s Dai Nippon Printing Co. (DNP). The product managed to tick virtually every box among judges’ criteria, and it represents a thoughtful use of packaging as problem solving medium—something all packagers and packaging solution providers aspire to. The issue Both in Japan and in North America, glass bottles are the incumbent standard containers for high-end beer, wine, and spirits (among other beverage options), both for their barrier properties and the sense of quality imparted by glass’s hand-feel and weight. But the weight, rigidity, and sturdiness that provides a sense of luxury is also a drawback in terms of sustainability in transport, and glass’s brittle nature means breakage is always an issue throughout the supply chain. The case for PET is not without its drawbacks, either. In ...

UL seeking input on drug testing policy | News, Sports, Jobs

By ROBERT A. DEFRANK Times Leader Staff Writer MORRISTOWN — Union Local School District is looking for community input as it forms a new drug testing policy. Superintendent Ben Porter told the board of education Thursday that a public meeting on the matter is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. March 11 at the high school commons. “We will be having an open discussion in terms of drug testing policy — drug testing for students. We’ve discussed this on prior years, and we’d really like to get student input and community and parent input,” he said. “We’d like to share our ideas and get feedback at that time … and obviously be open to any ideas they might have.” Porter said the policy would coincide with student membership in the Belmont County Staying Clean drug-free clubs, in which many students participate. “Right now, we currently work through the drug-free club of Belmont County, which is a great organization doing great things,” high school Principal Zac Shutler said. “We really would like to continue with that. Really it’s about prevention. It’s about information, and it’s about giving parents a chance to help their kids if they do have an issue, and also our students who aren’t u...
