Interesting study comparing physical fitness changes of young men entering military service in Finland between 1975 to 2105. Based on the fitness test results of over 600,000 19 year old Finnish recruits.

 

…. the total increase in body mass was 6.8 kg (8.8%, P ≤ 0.001) between 1993 and 2015. The mean distance achieved in the 12-min running test decreased by 337 m (12.2%, P ≤ 0.001) between the peak in 1980 and 2015. The relative number of conscripts who ran less than 2200 m increased from 3.6% to 25.9% (P ≤ 0.001) between 1980 and 2015, and the proportion who ran more than 3000 m decreased from 25.1% to 6.5% (P ≤ 0.001). The relative number of conscripts who achieved an excellent or good muscle fitness index decreased from 66.8% to 40.1% (P ≤ 0.001) between 1992 and 2000, and remained unchanged between 2000 and 2010. However, the proportion who achieved a poor muscle fitness index increased from 8.1% to 31.4% (P ≤ 0.001) between 1992 and 2010.

The present study shows that the increase in mean body mass of young male conscripts has slowed down during the last 10 yr. However, their aerobic capacity has still decreased during recent decades.

Interesting story Klaatu, thank goodness he made it out of there safely. Fortunately the police, who had been notified there might be trouble, were able to ensure that the offenders did not get away with it. But alas, it wasn't the racists that got Nat King Cole in the end, it was the cigarettes, as he died of lung cancer at only 45. One of the greatest singing voices of his generation imo. He's at his best in classic ballads like this one...

That show also mentioned the Green Book.

In the late 1950s when I was five years old my family lived in a low income housing development in Seattle, Holly Park,  and across the street from us was a black family whose two children I was friends with. There was a group of older white kids who would often chase me through the neighborhood and beat me up if they caught me whenever they saw me playing outside because of that friendship but I didn't know that at that time. I thought they hated me because my mother was in a wheelchair but would later learn otherwiser. It was while we were living there I heard for the first time 'enie meanie minie moe' with the N word. I repeated that in front of my mother so she took me into the bathroom, washed my mouth out with soap and told me to never say that word again.

From a review a couple of years ago of the Hallmark Channel's Christmas movie marathon.

 

They brim with white heterosexuals who exclusively, emphatically, and endlessly bellow “Merry Christmas” to every lumberjack and labradoodle they pass.  They’re centered on beauty-pageant heroines and strong-jawed heroes with white-nationalist haircuts. There are occasional sightings of Christmas sweater–wearing black people, but they exist only to cheer on the dreams of the white leads., “Santa Just Is White” seems to be etched into every Hallmark movie’s town seal. And what some call sexism, Hallmarkland calls family values.

I think the author of this article is in serious need of a mental health professional.  I recommend a labotomist.
