Just in time for millions of Americans who are plump and satiated from the holidays comes news from Duke University about which kind of exercise works best for burning calories and losing weight. aerobic training, such as walking, running and swimming, versus resistance training, which includes activities like lifting weights. Aerobic exercise has long been touted as the best fat-burner, but some research has suggested resistance training, which helps build and maintain muscle mass, might also be an effective way to lose weight because it reportedly increases a persons resting metabolic rate. The Duke scientists divided 234 overweight or obese volunteers into three groups, randomly assigning participants to resistance training (three days per week of weight lifting, three sets per day, eight to12 repetitions per set), aerobic training (approximately 12 miles per week) or aerobic and resistance training (all of the exercise above). exercisers spent an average of 133 minutes a week training and lost weight, while the resistance training group spent approximately 180 minutes exercising each week and lost no pounds. The combination lost some weight and fat mass, but not trainers. On the plus/minus side, they did enjoy the largest decrease in waist circumference, though researchers said this might be due to spending spent twice as much time exercising as the other groups. Balancing time commitments suggests that aerobic exercise is the best option for reducing fat mass and that resistance training isnt good for you; its just not very good at burning BODY OF KNOWLEDGE approximately 40 pounds of dust over an average lifetime.

Heres a few ways to green your holidays without being a Scrooge or Grinch. Those lovely twinkling lights can generate as much global warming pollution as about 250,000 cars, according to Union of Concerned Scientists. That means that if you decorate your home and tree with 10 strands of 100 bulbs lit 8 hours a day from Thanksgiving to New Years, it can cost you up to $200. Powering the same amount of LED (Light Emitting Diode) mini lights would cost less than $10. Why not donate all your old lights to Salvation Army and invest in LED mini lights. Dont balk at the higher cost of LEDs, youll get that money back on your electric bill. Generally, LEDs will pay for themselves in the LEDs give off very little heat and last up to 20 years. Tinsel and plastic decorations are an environmental hazard. Most are made from plastics that cannot be recycled and may photodegrade when exposed to sunlight. That means that they break down into smaller and smaller particles that get absorbed into living things and wind up in our bodies. Skip the phthalate-laden plastics and use natural materials for decorations like popcorn and and real greenery. What you put under the tree is as important as what you put on the tree. Gift wrapping paper is costly, and often used only once before winding parts of gift wrap are environmental hazards. Consider buying recycled gift wrap, or better yet, make your own. Paper grocery bags turned inside out make sturdy wrapping paper that can be decorated with real holly, straw, and other natural materials. Putting unwrapped gifts in reusable tote bags instead of gift bags is giving two gifts in one. Emailing cards is the greenest way to send holiday greetings. Homemade cards or cards printed on 100 percent recycled paper are the next best. Opt for cards with an enclosed coupon Bulky gifts take much more gas to deliver and generate more emissions in the process. When entertaining for the holidays, plan seasonal menus and cook what is available locally, even if it takes a little extra effort and money. This reduces the food miles your ingredients travel and generates less greenhouse gases. local wine or a dessert from a local baker. When you buy from local food producers, you spread the wealth locally and get an interesting story to tell at the dinner table.

36 Gabber December 27 January 2, 2013 The Twelve Bars of Christmas When is a pub crawl not just a pub crawl? When the crawlers use the celebration to help kids having a tough time. Four years ago, a group of St. Pete Beach locals started donning Santa, elves, Frosty the Snowman, reindeer, and other Christmas-minded costumes. Armed with red and green costumes, Santa hats, and reindeer antlers, the group would work its way through 12 local beach bars, spreading (and consuming) holiday cheer at each location. Sound like a recipe for drunken revelry? Not exactly, although many of the bars thank the crawlers with free shots or, as in Woodys case, a spread of food to help ward off any drunken mistakes. The celebrating has a higher purpose. Providing the recipe for a night hopefully soon forgotten isnt the only thing to donate to a kid struggling at Christmas. This year, the 12 Bars of Christmas collected 35 toys and donated them to All Childrens Hospital. During a night costing a good amount of dollars spent on costumes and drinks, spending a proportionately smaller amount of money to make a childs The 12 Bars of Christmas takes place every year; for more information check Christmas 2013 approaches, the crawlers will post the schedule.

40 Gabber December 27 January 2, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. Are Trusts Only for the Super-Rich? While it is true that you should have a fair amount of assets before you consider setting up a trust, a trust is no longer the province of the "super-rich." Simply stated, a trust is a legal document that makes it possible for you to put aside some of your money and direct how it will be used upon your death or in some form of trust, while you're alive. A trust may also ease your tax bite. A trust generally offers several don't have to go through probate, which saves time and money. Additionally, you may be able to maintain control over the trust assets while you're alive and capable; sick and incapable; or as part of an estate plan at your death. Many individuals and families have found that trusts offer a planning opportunities. Even where your estate plan calls for all the pass to the surviving spouse under the unlimited marital estate tax be due on the death of the surviving spouse. Proper use of carefully drafted non-marital trusts for the or children may keep these assets out of the surviving spouse's estate and reduce the overall tax bite on the estate plan. So-called "living trusts" have become very popular with those interested in avoiding the expense, delay and publicity of probate; while allowing the grantor to maintain control over the trust assets during his or her lifetime, if capable and competent. The type of trust you use depends on your personal situation and the advice you receive from a legal expert. Since there are many types of trusts, only a complete evaluation of your family's needs will determine which trust should be used. Mr. Myers is the owner of Akerson Campas Cleaning, Inc.
