Swimming is a great way to stay fit in older age

New research shows that older adults who exercise regularly can perform everyday tasks more easily and gain independence.

These declining levels of physical activity may be due, in part, to an increase in sedentary behavior, heavy traffic areas, pollution, and a lack of parks and facilities.

Can India replicate their 1983 heroics?

Can India replicate their 1983 heroics? Along with Australia (five times) and the West Indies (twice), India is the only team to win multiple World Cups, starting with their maiden title in England in 1983. Legendary allrounder Kapil Dev was the captain of the side that upset the Windies in the final at Lord's by 43 runs. Thirty-six years later Virat Kohli has the chance to replicate Dev's landmark win with a team that is considered to be one of the tournament favorites and perhaps the biggest threat to beating hosts England, the No.1 ODI side in the world. India enters the World Cup after losing 2-3 to Australia at home and playing an entire Indian Premier League season, perhaps not an ideal preparation. The expectation is high with any Indian side, but this one has shown in the recent past it can handle the pressure.
