5 Ways to Sneak in a Workout During the Holidays

first_img1. Help with the HouseworkOffering to help clean up, rake the leaves, etc.. is a good way to fit in some extra activity in your day. You could even offer to walk the dog or play a game with the kids. You will most likely already have cleaning up on your schedule, so you can kill two birds with one stone while also helping out your loved ones.2. Floor ExercisesIf everyone is sitting on the couch watching a movie, you can take that opportunity to get some exercise in. Doing floor exercises like sit-ups, push-ups, and leg lifts are a great way to get your body moving. These exercises are also very quiet, so you will not have to worry about disturbing anyone else.3.Park Far AwayIf holiday shopping is on the itinerary, you have a great chance to sneak in a little bit of physical activity. Try parking far away from the mall and other stores so you have to walk a little farther. You could even do extra laps around the mall while you wait for everyone to finish their shopping.4.Seasonal ActivitiesGoing outside and jumping in the leaves or simply running around isn’t just for the kids! Get outside yourself and join in on the games and activities. You could also take a trip to go ice skating, that way you are incorporating fun family time in with physical activity.5.Short WorkoutsIf you are pressed for time, you can always try to get in short, yet effective workouts. Even 15 minutes of activity is better than sitting all day. If there is any free time before dinner or when everyone else is occupied, try to get your workouts in during those times. You could do a short circuit of jumping jacks, push-ups, and running in place to get the most out of the short time you have. Creative ideas to stay active this ChristmasIf you are staying with family during the holidays, or if you are hosting the celebration yourself, you may find that there is not enough time in the day to get everything done.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum granted six weeks’ time to the state government to file its statement of objections to a petition filed seeking to ban all forms of Online Gambling and Online Betting of any nature until unless an appropriate regulatory regime is established. The bench in its order noted “AGA seeks time on the ground that a proposal to have a legislation is being placed before the cabinet. He seeks six weeks’ time.” It added “State government shall place on record the decision taken by the cabinet while filing the statement of objections.” Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for The Online Rummy Federation submitted : “We are running online rummy and we want to show your milord that this is not illegal and should not be prohibited.” The Federation sought to be impleaded as respondents in the matter. Advocate Shridhar Prabhu appearing for the petitioner did not object to the application being allowed. Accordingly, the court allowed the impleadment application and directed the petitioner to carry out the physical amendment within six weeks time and allowed the Federation to file its statement of objections to the petition, within six weeks. The petition filed by Sharada D R states that because there is complete regulatory vacuum as far as the online betting and gambling are concerned. There is no regulatory body or governmental structure to regulate and monitor online gambling and betting. As a result, the vulnerable sections of society, particularly the youth, adolescents and even children are prone to hazardous and predatory situations amidst this pandemic. It is also mentioned that High Courts of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu have directed their respective jurisdictional state legislatures to explore the possibilities of regulating the regime. In these states there exists a central legislation. However, in Karnataka there is neither central legislation nor any regulatory regime. The petition also notes that because the State has no mechanism to monitor whether any online game or activity is a game of chance or involves skill. It cites the example of the Game of Rummy is a game of skill. It is said “However, what holds good for the game in the offline mode may not be true for the online mode. The State has not bothered to create any monitoring mechanism to ascertain whether the online Rummy offered by various virtual gaming platforms. In fact, admittedly many other puritan games of chance are in vogue on the internet, which can be very easily accessible and played by persons of all age groups including the children. However, the State has not taken any action to regulate the same.” The petition also states that because in the present pandemic situation, vulnerable sections of society, particularly, youngsters and children have access to the internet via mobile phones and laptops. Realising this precarious situation, many states have brought about legislation and regulatory regime to ban online gambling and betting. The matter will be next heard on March 21.Last week, the Kerala High Court had directed the government to take a decision within 2 weeks on a proposal by the State Police to include online gambling under the Kerala Gaming Act.In November 2020, the Madras High Court had asked the Tamil Nadu Government to bring a law to curb online betting. Following that, the Tamil Nadu government brought an Ordinance recently. The Gujarat High Court has also passed a similar direction.Also, the Delhi High Court has directed the Union Of India & Delhi Government to treat a petition filed against online gambling, as a representation and decide the grievances ventilated in the petition, as narrated in detail in the writ petitionClick Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Men’s Basketball: Newly minted No. 24 Badgers take down Northwestern for seventh straight win

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (20-10, 13-6 Big Ten) found their way to a three-way tie for first place in the Big Ten Tuesday night in an ugly 63–48 win over Northwestern (7-22, 2-17).The Senior Night victory makes seven straight now for the red hot Badgers whose season has done a complete 180 since a shaky 13-10 start.Men’s Basketball: Brad Davison’s recent success is sign of things to comeIn the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s disappointing 18-point Feb. 5 loss at the hands of archrival Minnesota, there Read…Nathan Reuvers led the way as the only Badger in double digits with 11 points, and no one player stood out amongst the rest in Wednesday’s conference matchup. But, Northwestern sits in last place in the Big Ten for a reason, so quality contributions across the board were enough for Wisconsin to come away with a win. UW relied on the deep ball throughout and made sure to feed Brevin Pritzl, the lone senior, to play substantial minutes this year. He finished with nine points and six rebounds on 3-6 (50 percent) shooting from beyond the arc. Despite getting out to a big 28-11 lead with 5:40 left in the first half, Wisconsin went cold and only led by six at the intermission.Luckily, however, Northwestern’s year-long offensive struggles really started to show in the second. The Wildcats shot just 7-27 (25.9 percent) from the field and failed to connect on all eight of their three-point attempts.Men’s Basketball: Badgers win in hard-fought Border Battle matchup with MinnesotaThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (19-10, 12-6 Big Ten) followed up their impressive win on the road at Read…Sophomore forward Pete Nance was NW’s lone bright spot, finishing with 14 points, seven rebounds and two blocks. With the game in hand and a minute left up 12, Wisconsin gave Pritzl his well-deserved Kohl Center send off. Replacing him was Michael Ballard, the only other senior on the team.Ballard only logged nine minutes all season and never got the chance to score until Wednesday night. With five seconds on the clock, Ballard drove through four Wildcat defenders and banked in a lefty scoop layup.Brad Davison, Micah Potter and Aleem Ford all matched Pritzl with nine points each, while D’Mitrik Trice wound up with eight points and four assists. It was Greg Gard’s 100th career win as the Badger head coach, who now sits at 100-57 since taking over the team back in 2015-16.In addition to Pritzl and Ballard, UW honored Rashard Griffith, who left after his sophomore year back in 1995 to go pro but more recently returned to finish his degree.Men’s Basketball: Multiple contributors fill void left by Kobe KingFollowing a frustrating Jan. 27 loss to Iowa on the road, the Badgers were slammed with more bad news just Read…The win pushed Wisconsin into a three-way tie with No. 9 Maryland and No. 16 Michigan State. They will finish the regular season in Bloomington this Saturday against the unranked Indiana Hoosiers.When the two squads met earlier this year on Dec. 5, Kobe King was still in UW’s lineup and the Hoosiers were 8-1. It wound up being a huge 20-point victory for the Badgers. Now sitting at 19-11, Indiana needs to win this game if they want any chance at a single-digit seed, so expect Hoosier faithful to come out in droves.Wisconsin held leading scorer Trayce Jackson-Davis — averaging 14 points per game — to just nine in the first game. But they had trouble stopping Al Durham, who wound up with 15 on 75% three-point shooting.To keep their win streak alive and head into tournament play riding high, Greg Gard will need to make sure he has guys in Durham and Devonte Green’s faces all night. If they get hot, it might spell trouble.Men’s Basketball: Badgers continue to show resiliency after loss of Kobe KingFirst day of class in the fall semester, I got to class with a few minutes until the professor would Read…Wisconsin definitely holds the size advantage with Reuvers and Potter holding down the paint. They should look to stretch the floor early per usual than attack Indiana’s relatively small front court. March Madness is in the air, folks. You can catch the game live on ESPN or listen in on Badger Radio Network — tip is set for 11:00 a.m.last_img read more
