    It was once known as the 'disease of kings' – but hospital admissions for gout have surged due to binge-eating and exercising less during the lockdowns, figures suggest. The number of cases has risen by 20 per cent in three years, with 234,000 patients admitted to hospital with gout in 2021/22, NHS Digital statistics show. There has also been a significant rise in obesity over the same period.  Experts said many spent more time sitting down during the Covid lockdowns and might have eaten more snacks and junk food while working from home. Gout is a type of inflammatory arthritis that causes sudden and severe joint pain. Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, told The Sunday Telegraph: 'Forget Falstaff, Henry VIII and the rich Victorians who made gout infamous.  'Today's Elizabethans are eating and drinking them all under the table.'

    BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – In the aftermath of the Marshall Fire, Boulder County fire departments are, for the first time, holding mass training exercises and developing a mass evacuation plan. Boulder, Boulder Rural, Lafayette, Louisville, Longmont and Mountain View are combining forces like never before. “To where we’re operating under the same policies to stop the incident before it gets too big,” said Boulder Battalion Chief Chad Rennich. In addition to their first-ever joint training academy, the six departments have established shared radio channels and are creating a uniform dispatch system says Rennich. (credit: CBS) “With simultaneous, real time GPS locations.” With limited resources and unprecedented fires, Rennich says Boulder’s fire agencies can no longer operate in isolation and neither, he says, can structure and wildland firefighters, who use different tools, trucks, and protective gear. “There’s been the basic level of, ‘Hey, there’s a wildland fire. Let’s go do it.’ But, the detailed knowledge behind it, that’s what’s been getting ramped up.” Every firefighter is now getting more advanced cross-training and every engine is now being equipped with tools...
    TOKYO (AP) — U.S. and Japanese warships, led by the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group, are conducting their joint naval exercise in waters between Japan and the Korean Peninsula for the first time in five yeas, in a show of their close military alliance amid growing speculation of North Korea’s missile or nuclear testing later this week. The U.S. 7th Fleet and Japan’s Maritime Self-Defense Force said Wednesday they conducted a joint naval exercise at the Sea of Japan on Tuesday and Wednesday. It was the first time the U.S. aircraft carrier held the exercise in the area since 2017 and is seen as an apparent attempt to deter North Korea’s provocation. Defense experts have warned that North Korea may launch another missile or even conduct a nuclear test as early as this week when Pyongyang marks the birth anniversary of its founding leader Kim Il Sung. Tension is rising in the region ahead of an annual joint military exercise between the United States and South Korea. Japan has also stepped up joint military exercises with its...
    Russia would be able to overrun Ukraine in just two days in an invasion that could kill 50,000 civilians, according to US intelligence.  Western intelligence assessments also believe Kyiv's government would fall within that timeframe, and lead to a humanitarian crisis involving around 5million refugees.  The likelihood of a diplomatic resolution of the crisis appears to be increasingly slim, the analysis concluded.  Referring to an earlier build-up last year, one European official - speaking on condition of anonymity - told the Washington Post: 'Our worry would be that you don't park battle groups … on the border of another country twice and do nothing.  'I think that's the real fear that I have. [Putin's] now put them all out there. If he does nothing again … what does that say to the wider international community about the might of Russia?'  It comes as US military and intelligence officials believe Russia is set to run a major nuclear weapons exercise in the coming weeks as a warning to Nato not to intervene in the event of Putin invading Ukraine, the Financial Times reported.  Russia...
    People hoping to ward off bone, muscle and joint pain in later life should exercise more often and for longer, experts have said. A study of nearly 6,000 Britons aged over 50 shows vigorous activity — such as running, swimming or tennis — at least once a week is needed to ward off musculoskeletal pain in the long-term. Researchers at the University of Portsmouth found moderate exercise, such as dancing or walking, or mild exercise, such as laundry and vacuuming, did not reduce the risk. Dr Nils Niederstrasser, a pain and injury expert at the university, said: 'Chronic pain is a huge problem at any age, and one of the main causes for people calling in sick at work or visiting A&E. 'It is one of the most widespread and complex problems in the medical community and leads, for many who suffer with it, to a lower quality of life and poor wellbeing.' Nearly two-thirds of over-75s in the UK report suffering from persistent pain. Despite the study's finding, thousands of older people find intense workouts give them aches and pains. A...
    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Naval forces from the United States, Israel and two Gulf Arab states are taking part in a joint security drill in the Red Sea, a vital shipping route that feeds into the Suez Canal. The U.S. 5th Fleet said Thursday that the five-day multilateral maritime exercise with Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain began on Wednesday and includes at-sea training focused on search and seizure tactics aboard the USS Portland transport dock ship. The drill appears to be the first time these nations acknowledge shared maritime training exercises. It comes a little more than a year after the UAE and subsequently Bahrain normalized ties with Israel despite strong criticism by Palestinians over the formal recognition of Israel. The statement by the 5th Fleet did not specify where in the Red Sea the exercise was taking place. The sea, which connects the Mediterranean Sea by the Suez Canal with the Indian Ocean by the Gulf of Aden is one of the world’s key oil shipping routes. Over the past years, Yemen’s...
    MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s defense minister on Friday hailed joint war games with China this week as a sign of increasingly close military cooperation that should expand further. Sergei Shoigu flew to China to attend the drills that wrapped up Friday in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. “We have achieved a high level of cooperation between our militaries on land, in the air and at sea,” Shoigu said during a meeting with his Chinese counterpart, “Expanding it is an important part of our future activities.” The Russian military sent several Su-30SM fighters and a motorized infantry unit to take part in the maneuvers. Shoigu noted that the exercise marked the first time that Russian troops had taken part in joint drills on the territory of China, adding that it reflected a “new level” of military cooperation, to the benefit of regional and global stability. In a statement about the exercise, the Russian Defense Ministry quoted Wei as saying that it was intended to increase the ability “to jointly respond to risks and challenges” and wasn’t aimed against any third country....
    Those who see or hear an above-average amount of helicopters and emergency response sirens around RFK Stadium in D.C. on Saturday shouldn’t panic; it’s likely part of a joint training exercise. The D.C. National Guard, U.S. Park Police and D.C. Fire and EMS will be hosting a medical training exercise from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the stadium’s Lot 3 at 1900 East Capitol St. SE. D.C. Fire and EMS said the exercise provides the agencies the chance to practice their joint efforts.
    Our joints connect our bones and keep them from knocking together. Some joints – like hinge joints – help us move in different ways. For example, knee joints enable us to bend our legs to sit down or squat, and shoulder joints allow us to raise our arms to take something out of a cupboard. As we get older, the cartilage that cushions our joints becomes thin or wears out. This deterioration causes inflammation and pain that’s generally associated with different kinds of arthritis. Therefore, protecting your joints as early as possible can prevent these issues and enhance mobility as you age. Follow these tips to get started! Stay Hydrated Staying well-hydrated is essential to your overall health. Water regulates body temperature, helps stave off infection, helps kidneys eliminate toxins, lubricates joints, and so much more! For good joint health, you should replace the water your body loses. If it recognizes a shortage, your body will try to pull the water it needs from other places – including your cartilage. When your cartilage loses water, there is less synovial fluid...
    Ukraine’s armed forces announced plans to conduct joint training drills with its NATO allies Saturday, as worry mounts over Russian troop movements on the smaller nation’s border. More than 1,000 troops from at least five NATO member states will participate in the training later this year, The Hill reported. The exercises, described on the Facebook page of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, will aim to support Ukraine’s “territorial integrity” in the face of “aggression from one of the hostile neighbor countries” — presumably Russia. The announcement came less than a day after President Biden, in his first official phone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky, pledged his “unwavering support” to Ukraine — and as US defense officials voice increasing concern over an apparent buildup of Russian military might in Crimea.

    (UPI) — The guided missile cruiser USS Monterey conducted joint maritime security patrol with the Israeli Sa’ar 4.5 ships in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea this week. “Regional security and stability are directly linked to enhanced cooperation, understanding and collaboration with our partners,” U.S. Navy Capt. Joe Baggett, USS Monterey commanding officer, said in a Navy press release. “Through operations and training such as this, U.S. and IDF enhance existing cooperative relationships and take great strides in safeguarding the region’s vital link to the global economy,” Baggett said. According to the Navy, the patrols “enhanced interoperability between the maritime nations through communication and command and control scenarios between the two nations.” Commanding officers were also able to hold a cross deck meeting while observing COVID-19 safety protocols. Monterey, which is homeported in Norfolk, Va., departed for deployment on Feb. 18 with the rest of the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group. Earlier this month, the Navy announced that the strike group was conducting flight operations near the Canary Islands off the West African Coast. Last week the Marine Corps led Israeli Defense Forces on a tour of simulation centers at North Carolina’s...
    New York : Your body’s performance in your training routine will be affected by the order that you have given to the exercises that are part of it. As Vitónica indicates, order is not a minor matter, but an aspect that requires attention on our part. One of the criteria that we must take into account with respect to the type of training we do, is to separate the routines whose objective is to promote muscle hypertrophy, from the routines we do to gain strength. How to order exercises in a strength routine Multi-joint exercises are usually more demanding than isolated exercises. Doing them at the end of the routine can cause injury. Photo: Pixabay Strength routines tend to revolve around the multi-joint or compound exercises and not in simple or isolated exercises, this with the aim of involving several muscles and / or muscle groups at the same time. On the other hand, multi-joint exercises are more complex and technically demanding than isolated ones. In addition, if we do them while already tired, the risk of suffering...

    Twelve Palestinian groups participated Tuesday in an unprecedented joint drill in Gaza, which saw the use of drones and the firing of several rockets into the Mediterranean as a warning to Israel. The Hamas-dominated Joint Command Room, comprised of approximately a dozen of Gaza’s militant outfits, organized the Dec. 29 drill, dubbed “Al Rukn Al Shadid,” to train for possible military scenarios with Israel, The Media Line reported.  “We salute the Palestinian factions in Gaza that carried out [the exercise] today,” Ismail Haniyeh, senior Hamas political leader, said on Tuesday, according to a Hamas press release.

    By Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA (Reuters) - An array of Palestinian militant groups launched rockets into the Mediterranean Sea off the Gaza Strip on Tuesday at the start of what they called their first-ever joint exercise, which Israeli media described as a show of force organised by Iran. Gaza is run by Hamas and also home to other militant groups, including Islamic Jihad. The exercise was announced on behalf of a joint command set up by the groups in 2018. Eight rockets streaked through a cloudless sky in Gaza towards the Mediterranean after Abu Hamza, spokesman for Islamic Jihad, delivered a speech launching the drill. It will include land and coastal exercises described by the groups as a test of their preparedness for any future confrontation with Israel. Israeli media said the drill was organised by the militants' sponsors in Tehran to demonstrate risks Israel could face if Iran comes under U.S. or Israeli attack in the waning days of the Trump administration. On the eve of the exercise, a large portrait of Iranian military commander General Qassem Soleimani, who was...
    Walking and running are two of the best forms of exercise for cardiovascular health. adamkaz/Getty Images Both walking and running can help you achieve the recommended weekly amount of exercise and improve your health.  However, running is better for burning calories and losing weight.  If you are older or prone to injury, walking may be safer than running, as it puts less stress on joints.  This article was medically reviewed by Joey Thurman, CSCS, CPT, FNS, a Chicago-based fitness expert and MYX Fitness coach.

    LIMASSOL, Cyprus (AP) — Britain flexed its naval muscles in its largest deployment off Cyprus in decades, to make its presence felt in the volatile region and underscore what officials said was the country’s post-Brexit commitment to buttressing Europe’s security. A three-ship strike force centered around the Royal Navy’s flagship HMS Albion on Tuesday conducted joint maneuvers with a Cypriot patrol vessel and helicopters and the French frigate Jean Bart off the coastal town of Limassol. The main part of the exercise involved Cypriot special forces and British Royal Marines boarding a supposedly hijacked ship by fast-roping down from hovering helicopters while small, highly maneuverable speed boats came alongside the vessel. “This is the U.K. doing its part to prove our commitment to European safety and security whilst working with our NATO allies and partners,” Deputy Strike Force Commander Capt. Phil Dennis told the Associated Press. British military officials said the joint training with Cypriot forces also illustrated a joint commitment to regional stability and a determination to further strengthen a bilateral defense relationship. “Cyprus is a very important partner...

    LONDON (AP) — Marine wildlife experts will try Thursday to move a pod of bottlenose whales from Scottish coastal waters where Europe’s largest naval exercise is about to begin. Exercise Joint Warrior is due to start Saturday on Gare Loch, one of a chain of sea lochs on the west coast of Scotland. Animal welfare experts say sonar from the vessels could hurt the whales. British Divers Marine Life Rescue Medics say the whales have been spotted in the area over the last month. It says its rescue boats and military boats will be used to coax the marine mammals back out to sea, but “there is no guarantee it will be successful, given the depth of water and distance that needs to be covered.” Northern bottlenose whales are a deep-diving species of cetacean normally found off the edge of the continental shelf to the west of the U.K. and Ireland.

    The U.S. Air Force is preparing for a “stealth war” against advanced enemy air defenses with a group of integrated airplanes and drones. These include the B-2, F-35 and famous, yet mysterious “Beast of Kandahar,” the stealthy RQ-170 drone. It was part of what an Air Report called a “Large Force Test Event” (LFTE) intended to explore “yet-to-be-deployed” technologies such as software, weapons and tactics in a warfare scenario. “This LFTE assessed the tactics and viability of the F-35 to provide enhanced SEAD [Suppression of Enemy Air Defense] support to LO [Low Observability] platforms, including the B-2 and RQ-170, within an operationally realistic environment,” the service report states. While it is not surprising that these stealth platforms would operate together in specific, high-risk tactical warfare scenarios, a distinguishing aspect of this appears to be its emphasis upon emerging technologies, prototypes and new-generation applications. Technically mature, promising new systems are often assessed or refined in these kinds of operations. The primary focus of the Aug. 4th to 6th exercise was LO, or Low Observability, demonstration using new technologies, Maj. Theodore Ellis, Chief...
    NEW DELHI - Indian Navy warships have held a joint exercise with the United States Navy in the Indian Ocean, according to the two countries. The maritime drill signals growing strategic cooperation between New Delhi and Washington at a time of heightened tensions with China. The exercises began Monday near India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which are located away from the Indian mainland, near one of the world’s busiest shipping routes close to the Malacca Strait. The Indian navy called the drills a “passage exercise,” a reference to maneuvers held by two countries when a transiting warship joins another. U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said Tuesday the combined exercise between the Indian Navy and the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier demonstrated the two countries’ “shared commitment to stronger naval cooperation and support of a free and open Indo-Pacific.” India and the U.S. carried out their first ever joint military exercise last November, and they plan to hold a two-plus-two ministerial dialogue later this year to build on their cooperative progress, according to Esper.
