Boy Scouts ordered to release secret sex abuse files

A judge overseeing a lawsuit brought by the family of a California boy molested by his troop leader in 2007 has ordered the Boy Scouts of America to hand over confidential files detailing allegations of sexual abuse by Scout leaders around the nation. The Santa Barbara County Superior Court judge said last month that the Irving, Texas-based organization must turn over the last 20 years’ worth of records by Feb. 24, with victims’ names removed, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday. The files will not be made public. Read More: Daily News
Sadistic ‘shooter’ husband

The young pregnant wife shot by her jilted, estranged husband outside a Brooklyn school said yesterday that she was recovering from the ambush. “I’m feeling a little better today,” victim Daisy Torres, 26, told The Post. Torres split from hubby Juan Torres Collazo, 62, months before the dismissal-time attack at PS 384 in Bushwick, but the scorned man wouldn’t let it go. “We’ve been together for eight months,” said Torres’ new beau, Hector Reyes, “and he kept harassing her and harassing her.

Lin fairy tale getting ‘real’ interesting for Knicks

We can stop dealing in the abstract, cease the comparisons to Joe Hardy and Roy Hobbs and Jimmy Chitwood. This isn’t fantasy. This isn’t a Hollywood script.

SICK IN BED_PRINT_8929W

For a week now I have been nursing the flu. I’ve been mostly in bed and it’s very frustrating. I can feel the fitness juice draining out of me. Several times I’ve thought of getting out of bed and putting on my sneakers, but each time, my body, lungs and head have said, “Whoa maybe this is a bad idea.”

So, resting on an elevated pillow with my feet up, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that there are times when being physically active can do more harm than good.

Now that I have nothing else to do I’m making a list of when not to exercise:

 

When You Are Sick

If you’ve got a cold and it’s not severe you CAN exercise without making yourself sicker. Your body will probably tell you to back off the intensity and you should listen. So just do a maintenance workout.

The flu, however, is not to be messed with. Influenza kills several thousand people a year. Your body is under siege from a virus, and you need to win that battle. Rest. Don’t exercise.

 

With A Fever

The flu is often accompanied by a fever, because your immune system is fighting off infection. Any time you have a fever you need to be resting to give your body a fighting chance. No exercise.

 

When You’re Tired

How tired? It you’ve got the fatigue and brain-block that comes from a long day at the office, some moderate exercise after work may help you relax and recharge.

But if your body is telling you to go home and go to bed, that’s what you need to do.

 

When A Chronic Condition Flairs Up

Most people with chronic conditions or injuries can exercise with doctor’s permission between flare-ups. But many make the mistake of trying to exercise when their condition is acute. When your condition flares up, wait it out. Don’t exercise. It only takes a moment to cause permanent damage. If your flare-up persists, go see your doctor.

 

When You’re Pregnant

Most pregnant women can exercise, but ability to exercise varies greatly from person to person. Make sure you talk to your doctor about any exercise you’re planning to do.

 

When You Have Pain

Patient: “Doctor it hurts when I do this.”

Doctor: “Don’t do that!”

It really IS that simple. Pushing through the pain is nonsense even for most professional athletes. If you’ve got pain, don’t exercise. See your doctor.

 

This list is a work in progress, and since I’m lying here, I’m sure I can think up some more stuff. How about you? If you’ve got some good reasons not to exercise, send them to me at exercise@movingfree.com.
