Pepe Mujica | Phrases about politics, life, the environment and consumption | News today – Music and Books – Culture


The book ‘In his words’, by Darío Klein and Enrique J. Morás bring together the ideas, opinions and dreams of former Uruguayan president José ‘Pepe’ Mujica, one of the most charismatic world leaders and politicians of the moment.

This is a sample of his thinking published a few months before his resignation from the Senate of Uruguay, in which he moved thousands this Tuesday by pointing out in one sentence that “succeeding in life is not winning, it is getting up and starting over every time one falls.”

Ecology

“My generation had to live for many decades under the fear of the nuclear umbrella, eventually a war, and these generations have to live before the threat of an ecological imbalance that is frankly unaffordable. Until when so much irresponsibility of this stupidly intelligent animal?

***

“The most important issue at the global level is to make sure that we are going to stay alive as a species, that we are going to continue to exist. For that we would have to start taking more care of the life of the planet. This cannot be done by a single country, the whole of humanity has to do it ”.

***

“The petulance of the man is brutal. There is an anthropomorphic vision that places man in the middle. If life is prioritized and analyzed throughout the planet, man is very tiny and insignificant ”.

Consumption

“In societies like this, man runs the risk of living his life as a buying agent and nothing more. This does not mean that you do not have to buy anything, you cannot live off air; it means that you have to free yourself from that slavery. You buy what you need to live, but you also do other activities. Happiness is not a material issue. Needing little is the shortest way to have freedom, to have time available to spend on what one likes or is passionate about. Sometimes it can be affection, the relationship with the family, with the children … Sometimes, dedicating time to an art, a craft, a sport ”.

***

“Give content to existence, because if you do not do it consciously, the content will be the fee you have to pay every end of the month for the new gadget you have to buy, and so on, chronically, until the end of your days, Until one day the bones won’t get up and goodbye Neither the memory nor the breath remains of you ”.

Job

“One thing is the poverty that you measure with the numbers and another is the one that is in the head. If you don’t bet on cultural change, material change is of little use ”.

Education

“We rulers should be forced to fill out pages every morning, as in school, writing a hundred times: ‘I must take care of education.’ Because there the face of the society to come is anticipated. A large part of the productive potential of a country depends on education, but also the future aptitude of our people for daily coexistence ”.

Modernity

“The world is changing all the time and, what is worse, the theory of how to build a better world is changing all the time.”

***

“The destiny of humanity has a lot to do with what humanity itself does. We are an animal that can simply self-destruct ”.

***

“We have to live in a time when being born is a business, at least for some. Dying is also business, because there are companies that bury us. Living is business, because we are subjects that consume. So on. Even smiles can be business ”.

Utopia

“We need a margin of utopia, because I believe that the human being is anthropologically utopian. I do not use the word ‘utopia’ in the sense in which people on the left habitually use it. I am referring to the possibility of believing in something that gives us hope for the future and enlightens us. Believe in something that allows us to dream ”.

***

“There are utopias and there are roads; what is in crisis more than anything are the roads. The signs that the stars gave us are still there, but apparently we have quite erred the paths, we are wrong in the interpretation of those signs ”.

The book is from the Debate label.

Future

“Actually we have to live, not an era, but an accelerated change of era, with a brutal technological explosion, with things of wonder (…) but if I had to represent humanity today in a monument, I would choose the monument of a monkey with a gigantic machine gun. Because in reality this humanity seems to have the resources it never had, but it does not know how to use them, it cannot use them, because from a political point of view it is not up to the needs of the time. It would give the impression that this knowledge-rich humanity is not, politically conscious, up to the challenges that lie ahead. Hopefully I’m wrong ”.

Globalization

“Globalization is a rough sea and our little boat has to sail there; But it is one thing to float, for the waves to take you anywhere, and quite another to have a course, even if we go zigzag ”.

***

“Those of us who live better have responsibility for those who live badly. We are going to live much better if those who live badly improve ”.

Solidarity

“With that, friends, that this time in which we live is one of those in which one wants to put the heart under a shoe, as Hernández said, because of the phenomenal contradictions of a civilization that has resources like never before; like a scientific and capital explosion such as past humanity could not even dream of. However, it seems, until the news of the feeling of piety, has lost that phenomenal humanistic construction of the Athenian civilization that Christianity gathered, which is the capacity to feel pain, solidarity with the one who suffers, with the one who is postponed, with the which is precisely left on the side of life ”.

Prison

“When I was released I was sure I was going to work the land again. Besides my wish, it was my dream. The whole long period during which I was imprisoned was like going back to my roots. The prison is not zero, it is much more than that. There is a lot of rumination, a lot of decisions are made. And I came out with the determination to have a farm ”.

Freedom

“Freedom as a definition has several planes. Individual freedom goes hand in hand with having free time to live. If you go crazy and want to change cars every so often, and have a house and another and another and another, you have to worry a lot and work a lot, and you never have time. Then you have to spend a lot of time worrying that they don’t steal from you, because they are going to rob you, because they are going to be envious of you. Meanwhile life is leaving you. Because I have not seen any man who has a lot of money and can go to a counter and buy years of life. So, I am free when I have time and in that margin I spend it on the things that I like ”.

***

“I mean, all human civilization is full of nonsense. Then the problem of freedom acquires another dimension, because we define freedom as an abstract thing. Freedom is having time to do the things that motivate you. There is an individual freedom that must be resolved, which for you may be fishing, for another to play soccer, for another to sit under a tree, each with that time. Now, the more margin you have, the greater that time, the freer you are (…). If not, life is fatigue, life is obligation. Nerd”.

Austerity

“Austerity is comfort. Anyone who believes that austerity is a sacrifice is a turnip. Austerity is getting rid of a lot of problems ”.

Democracy

“The democracy of classical Greece, so bold, capable of ruling by lot and electing judges by lot, probably produced the most explosive 150 to 200 years of history in the development of human skills and culture. Never has a society so small that it generated so much. It is impressive to see the names that are grouped in those one hundred and fifty years. Da to wonder what happened there. I am not making mysticism of Greek history, but you cannot ignore what this form of participation produced ”.

Politics

“For me politics is the art of extracting collective wisdom by putting one’s ear”.

Ideology

“Men go behind ideas, like the cart goes behind oxen, because ideas are the instruments we have to fight to perceive reality, and whoever wants to change reality will have ideas that try to get closer to interpreting that reality” .

Nature

“Nature has shown its greatness. If he eliminated the dinosaurs, why isn’t he going to eliminate us?

***

“We live in a wonderful world but we don’t necessarily see the wonders. The alarm clocks are fundamental, because sometimes it gives the sensation that the human being passes by the side of beauty and does not see it ”.

Lifetime

“My religion is life. Life is a miracle and as it is so everyday, as we are alive, we do not value it; but there is nothing more important than the miracle of being alive. This is a fixed term and it goes away ”.

Youth

“And to young people: if you want to live happily, raise an idea to believe in, live to serve that idea, do not let yourself be enslaved by the market.”

***

“Don’t let the youth be stolen from within. The one outside, inevitably, takes time. But there is a fightable youth, inside territory, looking at ourselves, and it is linked to a very simple and very small word: solidarity with the human condition ”.

Happiness

“Nothing is worth more than life, fight for happiness! And happiness is giving content to life and a path to life, and not letting it be stolen from you. There is no recipe for that, it is here, in the conscience ”.

***

“I don’t know if politics is governed by very mature people and they forget their youth, or if there is a kind of modesty. But happiness doesn’t seem to be part of the discourse. There is no concern that people have time to cultivate affections, time to live … It does not exist! And it is not disputed that we have a lonely life and that we are leaving! ”.

Legacy

What is the legacy of a guy in the universe? We are less than a louse. The legacy is having lived with the handle, with successes and errors. Succeeding is not having money, it is getting up every time one falls ”.

On video | Van Damme: 60 years of life, martial arts and excesses

The image of the Belgian actor Jean-Claude Van Damme performing a split (lateral opening of the legs) on any surface became a great reference in action cinema and martial arts. Its elasticity allowed him to create fantastic blows such as the flying kick with 360 ° rotation or helicopter kick, in which he mixed techniques of karate and classical ballet, something that aroused the interest of fans of this type of martial choreography.

In order to achieve world recognition, he had to migrate to the United States in 1982 with the illusion of venturing into Hollywood cinema. While that was happening, he made a living as a taxi driver, pizza delivery man, carpet installer, security guard and sparring partner for Chuck Norris, another action movie great.

His first role was as an extra in the 1984 film Missing in Action (known in Colombia as Prisoner of War), thanks to a recommendation from Norris. Two years later he begins to emerge after becoming the antagonist of the film Never Back Down, Never Surrender.

His first leading role was in the film Bloody Contact (1988), a tribute to Frank Dux, the greatest exponent of martial arts in Canada and the United States.

That movie co-starred Bolo Yeung, a Chinese bodybuilder also skilled in karate-do and kung fu. Bolo was a great friend of Bruce Lee and his success in the cinema is also due to Jean Claude Vandamme, with whom he still maintains a good friendship.

Among his most remembered films are: Kickboxer, Lawless Fighting Lion, Double Impact, Universal Soldier and The Colony.

Jean-Claude Camille François Van Varenberg (his first name) celebrates 60 years of life today. He knows very well what it is like to reach the top, but also due to his excesses of liquor, hallucinogens and women, he headed towards a dark alley from which it is difficult to escape. “He spent up to $ 10,000 a week on cocaine,” said Steven De Souza, director of the film version of the video game Street Fighter, which Van Damme starred in in 1994.

For others, especially people of the new generations, the image of Van Damme is only referenced in their conversations on WhatsApp and social networks as a meme, a funny character who dances in a very peculiar way in a scene from Kickboxer, while drinking in a canteen.

Beyond that, in his film career he had to defeat great rivals like Tong Po in Kickboxer, but he also found great allies such as basketball star Dennis Rodman, his fellow adventurer in The Colony.

His name is still valid as an actor, producer and director. In this last aspect, he has stood out for films such as The Quest or Full love. Another successful film in which Jean Claude Van Damme starred is The Indestructibles 2 (2012), in which he is the main villain. A constellation of stars from the action movies led by Sylvester Stallone participates in this film. They are followed by: Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Liam Hemsworth.

Julio Lara, teacher, critic and public educator, pointed out that Van Dame is a reference of the great exponents of martial arts in the film industry, and although he is not at the height of Bruce Lee or Yuen Woo-Ping, he remains in the Top 10.

“The first reference I had of him was from the movie Bloody Contact, from there I began to notice that his career coincided with certain directors who suddenly sowed some kind of seed in Hollywood. A memorable film in his career is Universal Soldier, which marks the debut of German director Roland Emmerich, who later made Independence Day, Godzila, The Day After Tomorrow, among others ”.

Well-being in body and soul

According to an investigation by the University of the Basque Country (Spain) on the effects of the pandemic, now there is greater uncertainty and concern about suffering from Covid-19 or losing loved ones; a decrease in confidence and optimism, especially in women and in people in poor employment situations; and an increase in irritability, again with a greater impact on women and the unemployed.

If we do not act now, in concert with research with vaccines and treatments, the post-pandemic outlook will be bleak for the mental health of millions of people.

And taking action, obviously, is not prescribing more antidepressants or anxiolytics, or building more psychiatric hospitals. Both actions are necessary to address some consequences; however, the idea is to be proactive and avoid them.

In response to the feeling of anxiety, according to the consulting firm Llorente y Cuenca (LLYC), there has been a rapid and broad change that goes from the “concept of wellness [bienestar], centered on the individual, al by wellbeing [bienestar integral], a more holistic vision that includes different people and sectors of our societies ”.

What does this mean? A call for the participation of the whole society in the benefits of well-being.

Wellbeing is defined as the state of satisfaction and tranquility that a person presents, thanks to their good physical and mental conditions.

“If societies and companies are unable to focus holistically on people’s well-being (including physical, emotional and spiritual health), it will be almost impossible to create safety nets that allow citizens to return to work and be productive ”, They explain from LLYC.

For this reason, I have always opted for wellness programs in all their aspects: emotional, physical, social and financial. This is what happens every November in the event “In Body and Soul”, which this year will be held in an online version, with more universal access, more experts and with the empowering and transforming energy of always.

To keep your balance in difficult times, “you have to grab the bull by the horns” and get going, as a popular saying reflects.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the pandemic has disrupted or paralyzed mental health services in 93% of countries. And if, as the WHO itself says, mental health is related to the promotion of well-being, the prevention of mental disorders and treatment, then let’s look for our own tools. Healthy living is much more than curing or protecting yourself from disease.

Nacional 2 – Junior 2: a better face of the ‘Jaws’ was seen

Junior got a point from Medellín. It could have been three, But, despite scoring two goals – not an easy task in a difficult place like Atanasio Girardot – it could be said that he was not entirely fine forward, where he wasted goals over and over again at the feet of Miguel Ángel Borja, Edwuin Cetré and, at the end, Larry Vásquez.

But in the end, in the midst of so much vicissitude, the ‘Jaws’ achieved a valuable point, in a tough moment and against a difficult opponent, who also did his thing to take the victory.

Rojiblancos and Verdolagas equaled 2-2 in Medellín last night, in an exciting match, filled with options, but also with errors on both sides, which ended up passing the bill on both sides.

Junior seized the ball and the emotions in the first 15 minutes. LThe rojiblancos came out to ‘talk’ to Nacional on his property, as he has already done in his last visits, where he has taken out ‘oil’ in the Atanasio.

Cetré and Borja warned from the start, but they lacked aim, missing two very clear options, the kind that end up weighing in this type of match.

But football did justice. Chen Nacional began to take hold on the field, Junior hit the first blow of the night at Borja’s feet, who received in the small area and took a shot that went to the back of the net, with the complicity of a purslane defender who deflected them, throwing the Vallenato goalkeeper José Fernando Cuadrado out of control.

National squeezed, was not daunted by the goal and found a reward at the end, when everyone had already ended the first half with a red-and-white victory.

Didier Moreno, in an attempt to clear, put the ball in his own goal, giving life to the place and pouring a bucket of cold water on ‘Jaws’.

The second part was a give and take. A round trip. Open match, between two teams that are not hiding.

Nacional had the best options, but lacked clarity on the last play. Until his scorer appeared.

Jefferson Duque, always attentive in the area, took advantage of Ditta’s oversight on the mark, got up and took an impeccable header that left Viera with no options.

It seemed that the rojiblanco ship was sinking. The local insistently looked for the third goal to put the rival’s tombstone, but it never came. And the one who doesn’t do them … sees them done. It happened to Junior in the first half and Nacional suffered in the second.

Out of nowhere “Cariaco” González appeared, taking advantage of an assist from Carmelo Valencia, to take a shot down, stuck to the vertical, which left goalkeeper Cuadrado without options.

Junior showed symptoms of improvement in the Athanasium and a valuable point is brought.

On video | The ‘Paths’ to strengthen the health system in Barranquilla

Guaranteeing timely and quality medical care for Barranquilla residents has become the Primary objective of the District with the process of modernization of the public health network, which continues to advance and plans to benefit more than 170 thousand citizens with new hospital projects.

Since 2008, the district administration has been working to build a solid health model, which has been cataloged repeatedly as one of the most successful in the national territory.

Although the health emergency due to Covid-19 was a huge challenge for the hospital infrastructure of the capital of the Atlantic, in the Development Plan ‘I am Barranquilla’, that governs the period 2020-2023, a series of actions were contemplated so that citizens have a timely and adequate response to your health requirements.

“We want the health of Barranquilla to continue its unstoppable march, that is why we are providing them with all the professional capacity so that care is timely and without access barriers. It is our main objective, guarantee comprehensive insurance, minimize the risks of becoming ill and provide quality health programs to all“Said the mayor Jaime Pumarejo Heins.

He was emphatic in stating that in this new stage they will bet on “turn the health system upside down, moving to a much more preventive health, with doctors in charge of specific populations ”.

The district president also stressed that the “robustness” in health services continues to grow, which directly impacts on the quality of life of Barranquilla and the Caribbean region.

“The public hospital network has been and will continue to be a national management model, where the resources obtained by the Prohospitales level 1 and 2 stamp are invested in providing efficiently and transparently to the more than 600 thousand users of the subsidized regime, as well as to anyone who requires it because We are also a regional reference center for health care in the Caribbean”, Reiterated the president.

In turn, Humberto Mendoza, Secretary of Health of Barranquilla, He stated that the district network model has provided “mobilization guarantees” to more than 19 thousand users, guaranteeing that “there are no barriers to access” to said services.

The official also expressed that the great challenge for the public network is strengthen the preventive medicine model to detect patients in time who have diseases that may pose risks to their life.

“In the city we have a network model that allows patients to access medium and high complexity services without authorizing systems limiting quality and care. That we will follow reinforcing to provide greater guarantees to citizens”, He added.

According to figures from the Mayor’s Office, accessibility to health increased 15 times between 2007 and 2018. It is expected that this year it will increase with the start-up of facilities such as the Camino Ciudadela 20 de Julio and Paso Galán.

For next year, this indicator will continue to grow, taking into account that the works of the New Barranquilla and Nazareth Roads will be delivered, which are ahead in two important sectors of the city.

Mayor Pumarejo has been making visits to these spaces to verify the progress of the works, taking into account that they were detained for a period due to the pandemic and currently not all the workers have been able to reintegrate, in order to comply with the corresponding regulations.

“We continue to grow with this new offer that adds to a solid network that is providing quality services to Barranquilla residents, showing that it is possible, as we have said for so long, to have quality, sustainable public health that continue to be a source of pride for each of us”Pumarejo said during one of those tours.

Mindful eating: the story of a doctor who changed his life

“When your heart tells you that something is over, you have to listen to it. Give a bit of cuiqui at first, obviously, it is a change and you have to go through that feeling. It is a giant slide. Later he realizes that it was good, that he had to go through it ” Luis Maria Delupi explains his departure from the system of Health and its conversion into naturopathic medicine. Graduated in medicine from the University of La Plata, he came to Alto Valle to do his residency, he passed through the Castro Rendón Hospital, the Bouquet Roldan, he was director at the Picún Leufú Hospital, he worked in Centenario and in the field as rural doctor, but one day his life took a turn that led to a path of research, dissemination and defense of a feeding conscious and an analysis of the body and the mind as fundamental engines of the fuel that we put into it every day.

“I am very grateful for the public health system that nurtured me and allowed me to have so much clarity in the decisions I make today, because I know that and I know well what it is about. As a concept, the health system rescued it in its entirety, I can have a difference with certain aspects. A state must be involved in the health system, in access, in benefits, it is a right. When I came to the province of Neuquén it was because there was a health system where I served the community of equitable, fair way and that was the hook that brought me to Neuquén. I did a residency in general medicine because I believe that 90% of doctors should be generalists, not the other way around, that has nothing to do with medicine, it is degeneration of medicine, which does not mean that specialties do not exist, “he said in an interview with The dinner room for LM Neuquén.

“The doctor is a teacher, he educates the community to stay healthy, what made me stay away from the health system was that I was sheltered in a guard, attending emergencies, accidents, heart attacks, and that is not what I wanted to do. all the time. I didn’t want to be in the office where thirty people come and of the thirty people each leave with a prescription with the little pill, I don’t like that, I don’t want that. If I can’t change the structure as it is, well, I have to change myself, I have to make my own way and then it happened that I ended up losing my health due to the disharmony that had to do with this. They were many years of stressful work, badly asleep, badly eaten, obviously that attentive. Sometimes we don’t have such clear ideas. Sometimes we hope to have 100% of things resolved sometimes you have to make decisions. He was without health, herniated disc, fatty liver, overweight, uric acid, lack of energy. Many times we think that we have to have cancer to be sick. If you wake up with little energy or are waiting for Friday to throw yourself in bed, something is not right there, “he added.

The doctor is a teacher, educates the community to stay healthy

When Delupi began his retirement, his reinvention, he began with specialists, drugs, complementary studies, but he was still lying in bed without being able to solve it. “Allopathic medicine was not helping me solve my difficulties. I had everything, and yet I was behind. It wasn’t there, ”he recalled.

“I had studied diseases in college, and I had studied how to diagnose diseases and how to medicate them, but I had not studied how to be healthy. As a doctor I did not know anything about health, I had been in college for six years, three years in residency, 10 working in hospitals and I did not know anything about health, when I began to research how to recover my health, I realized everything that It was missing, today I have clarity of everything that a health system, a clinic, an office, a health center is missing, I can see it. I started to dabble in naturopathic medicine and I realized that all that medicine lacks today is there or in large part, “he said.

“As a body, as biological machines that we are, we carry fuel, like your car, like your motorcycle. The quality of the food that enters your body is the quality of the fuel. It not only generates energy, but also through that food we received the construction materials to build this body with very good quality. They are very basic concepts and I never studied them, not even a food class in six years of college and three years of residency, “he added.

That got Delupi out of bed, activated him and thus began to complete his reinvention, which led him to be one of the leaders of this type of medicine and conscious eating today.

As a body, as biological machines that we are, we carry fuel, like your car, like your motorcycle. The quality of the food that enters your body is the quality of the fuel

The body as a vehicle

From his own experiences and his curiosity to find another path, naturopathic medicine began to catch him and from there he understood the system of purification and elimination of waste.

“Poop is waste and it is the elimination of food waste. The CO2 that we release with the exhalation is the gases that we eliminate when the body has to remove them. We have different organs that are in charge of the permanent detoxification that the body needs. If we cover the exhaust pipe of a car, it becomes blocked. The same thing happens to our bodies: the fuel you put in, the air that comes in and letting our body do the continuous detoxification that it does every day to keep the circuit working, ”he explained.

“We are with an alteration of life itself from a very young age, with anti-physiological postures, with pressure situations that we generate for children with responsibilities and others, we are generating a pattern of behavior and others, of being like you are going to eat a lion all the time, with a shallow, slow breathing, we are reversing the physiological pattern that all babies know and that when we are born we breathe perfectly ”, he added.

I chose to feel good, the book

During 2019, Delupi wrote I chose to feel good, a self-managing book that it sells through its website or in bookstores and places in the Valley and the country, which is soon to launch its third edition. “People understand that the path of the little pill is not going anywhere. It’s great if a tooth hurts and you take a pain reliever to get rid of it, but then you’re going to have to go to the paleontologist. The same goes for diabetes, hypertension, arthritis. You can’t go taking pills indefinitely, “he said.

Preparing books for them to come to your house! … Thank you very much to all those who choose the path of health !!! How happy it makes me !!! … You can order yours from www.plansaludarnos.com # gratitude # argentina # medicine # greet us # health book # well-being # health promotion # healthy # Health # choose you well # healthy food # micomidamesana # delupi

“I speak with everything I have learned, it is my opinion, nobody pays me. I was trained in a public university and I owe it to all of you who paid for my training, I am not going to make the fat broth for the food, pharmaceutical industry, or the politicians on duty. The priority of the book is to give you something so that you can be better. Things happen with the energy that we put into things, and everything in agreement helps to make that happen. When you have a selfish attitude, things get stuck because you are looking for personal benefit. We are victims of the food and pharmaceutical industry, “said Delupi, adding that there is a lack of representation from the rulers to avoid” industrial scams, “monoculture, transgenic soybeans.

You have a gasoline car, you don’t put diesel in it, because you break it. We have a physiology, an intestine that is prepared for a certain diet

“As a doctor, I not only have to promote health, but I also have to report. I can eat very nice but later if I don’t have a carrot that has less than 30 poisons of those that were approved, what good is it? “, He indicated.

The book is a user manual that allows you to understand the biological machine. The first chapter is breathing, it is the air filter, how it will enter your body, it is essential. Second chapter: feeding, where it was explained which ones are appropriate, what hunger is, understand it as a sensor that marks the little light on the board. Then follow the sections of sunbathing and walking barefoot, adequate activity, rest, body cleansing, electromagnetic radiation, leisure and fun; meditation and psycho-emotional state.

“You have a gasoline car, you don’t put diesel in it, because you break it. We have a physiology, an intestine that is prepared for a certain diet. That it is not like the lion, or the dog, or the wolf, which are different. The size of the stomach, the teeth, the triperium, how much is the power of stomach acid, our body is manufactured for a certain food. If you put the wrong food all the time, you are going to break it sooner, ”Delupi explained.

The new life of James Rodríguez and Shannon de Lima in the Premier: new paternity?

James Rodriguez has started a new life in Liverpool and it cannot be better. The Colombian has fit from the first moment in the Carlo Ancelotti’s team and the praise has already rained on him since his first meeting in the Premier. At 29 years old, with two children, and happily in love with Shannon de Lima, the midfielder starts in Liverpool a stage to claim again in the world of football after his time at Real Madrid.

The James Rodríguez’s relationship with Zidane was never good and in his last season at Real Madrid no longer counted in the final stretch, and He ‘ignored’ after the stoppage due to the coronavirus. But now, there is a completely new James Rodríguez in Liverpool, starting an adventure in the Everton where he feels valued from the first minute and has the full confidence of his coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The midfielder lived his best season with the Italian coach at Real Madrid and has now ‘recovered’ him to be the star of Everton in the Premier. It has not taken long to dazzle and leave everyone speechless with her class on her left leg. Their own colleagues have hallucinated with the ‘glove’ What does the Colombian have in his left foot.

“James has great brilliance. He made people go crazy giving passes from the other side. The flashes of what he is capable of was shown against the ‘Spurs’. He rarely turned the ball over. The weight of the passes he was sending across the field were incredible. ” And this is said by one of the heavyweights of the Everton dressing room, Michael Keane.

The center-back is Yerry Mina’s partner in the center of Ancelotti’s defense and he knows that James still lacks time because he arrives from a year almost without playing. “You don’t play in the clubs where it happened and you win the things you have, if you don’t have quality James is a superstar”, He pointed.

James Rodriguez se feel liberated at Everton and it has proven it from the get-go. The Colombian he has not had a good time in his last days as a player and his departure from Real Madrid was complicated. But he was always accompanied by his family and his partner at all times.

And that can also expand the family off the lawn. Shannon de Lima assured in a question from a follower on Instagram that I wanted to have another child again.

Physical exercise is still the best strategy to live longer and better, despite your genetics

The genetics seems to play an important role in our chances of living longer and better. Curiously, polymorphisms that are linked to greater or lesser longevity are also associated with physical qualities such as strength. Thus, the D allele and the DD genotype of the angiotensin converting enzyme gene are associated with a increased likelihood of achieving exceptional longevity (live more than 100 years and without any major disease), which may be related, at least in part, to a greater preservation of strength and muscle mass.

“The benefits of exercise are so powerful at any age that, even in nonagenarians (90 years or older), its effects are appreciated”

On the other hand, carry the ε4 allele of the ApoE gene seems to have a negative impact on one’s longevity, which would have to do with a loss of muscle strength. However, beyond genetics, there is strong evidence that exercise allows living more time and enjoy a healthy aging.

When we grow old

Changes that occur during aging include a loss of muscle mass and strength, a process called sarcopenia. Although traditionally the sarcopenia has been seen as an inevitable consequence of aging, a research group wanted to evaluate whether it could be due rather to the reduction in the levels of physical activity that older people usually present.

And, indeed, the results showed that, contrary to what is usually observed in sedentary subjects, in those who did sports there were no differences in muscle mass between people of different age groups, not even in the over 70 years old. And although a decrease in muscle strength associated with age was found, the fact that in athletes it only occurred after the age of 60, something that occurs much earlier in sedentary people, shows us once again the protective role that the exercise in front of deleterious effects of aging. It is confirmed that the decrease in physical activity is one of the main causes of the loss of muscle mass and function and not aging per se.

Cardiorespiratory fitness

Another of the changes associated with aging is a progressive decrease in cardiorespiratory fitness (measured as VO2peak). VO2peak is the main clinical indicator of health, so keeping it at optimal levels is essential for healthy aging. It is estimated that the VO2peak decreases around 1% per year from the age of 25 and it is accentuated after 70 years. Every time we have more evidence of the protective role that exercise could have against this functional decline. Proof of this is a recent review conducted by experts such as Pedro Valenzuela and Alejandro Lucía, and published in the prestigious magazine ‘Sports Medicine’, in which they demonstrate how exercising throughout life promotes greater functional capacity, attenuating the decline associated with age, compared to sedentary people.

Therefore, exercising throughout life seems to be an effective strategy to lessen or even avoid some of the effects of aging. This is supported by several scientific investigations, such as the one recently published in the revista ‘Aging Cell‘, where it was shown how the people of 55 to 80 years what have they practiced cycling throughout their lives they have practically no no aging-related deterioration in muscle properties (composition, type and size of muscle fibers, as well as mitochondrial content). Similarly, a systematic review with meta-analysis published in ‘Aging Research Reviews‘, a medical journal focused on the latest findings on the mechanisms of aging and age-related diseases, observed that people over 59 years old and who had at least 20 years training they had VO2peak and muscle strength similar to those of healthy young people, and better than that of older people who had not exercised throughout their lives.

Telomeres

One of the key processes in aging is the shortening of telomeres that, as we have written in this same space of opinion, is related to the risk of morbidity and mortality. In fact, those people with shorter telomeres have a 25% higher risk of death compared to those with a longer telomere length. Regular physical activity also slows down cellular aging and, as we recently read in a study belonging to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) In the United States, the telomeres of people with higher levels of physical activity had a greater telomere length equivalent to a biological aging approximately 9 years younger than sedentary people. In addition, the sedentary had the double risk of having very short telomeres compared to active people.

The benefits of exercise are so powerful and at any age that, even in nonagenarians (people aged 90 and over), its effects are appreciated. Thus, in another study led by Dr. Lucía, a group of people over the age of 90 who were in residences, and who carried out a training program combined cardio and strength exercise for 8 weeks, improved leg strength by 17% compared to those who did not exercise at all. It is confirmed that it’s never too late to start and take advantage of the many benefits of exercise.

The evidence is clear in this regard, concluding that it is important to stay active at any age, including the most advanced, to avoid exponential decay what happens with aging. Therefore, as long as there is adequate medical control, we should not be afraid to include simple and adapted exercise programs in this population. Finally, it is also important to know the negative effects of sedentary lifestyle, so in the Current situation in which it is recommended to avoid leaving the house, mainly, to the elderly, we must apply the necessary prevention strategies from today so that tomorrow is not too late.
