Pilates can aid some with Parkinson's

Just received from a friend this interesting news for Parkinson sufferers. Although unrelated to my central topic here I think it is an important finding that is worthwhile sharing.

Parkinson's, a degenerative disorder, inhibits a person's ability to
control movement. Its most common symptoms include tremors, slowness of
movement, rigidity and poor balance.

The Parkinson Center of the Oregon Health and Science University in
Portland held a Pilates pilot program earlier this year,
and after it found improvement in the participants' rigidity and
balance it launched a twice-weekly class open to the public.

Instructors say the basic principal of Pilates — increasing core
strength and improving flexibility and balance — is extremely helpful
in countering the effects of Parkinson's in some people.

"A lot of times exercise is as much for the head as it is for the
body," said John White of Corvallis, Ore. "To feel like you can help
yourself in some way is really important."

Fast Food Nation

One of's Best Book of 2001 by Eric Schlosser, Fast Food Nation opened as a movie today. Check out the trailers at IMBD. Read author Eric Schlosser`s interview by Susan Gerhard at Greencine.

An excerpt from this interview follows:

"The book is a work of investigative journalism by me. The film is a Richard Linklater film. Two totally different people are having their say on the same subject. They're just really different. I think the only way the film could be good was if it's totally different, if it obeys its own rules."
