    Today is the 10th day of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Since one of the main goals of the Olympics is to popularize physical activity, here we will discuss which winter sports are considered to be the best for one’s health. Check out the benefits of Skating, Curling and Snowboarding compared to skiing. The first association most people have with the words "winter sports" are skis. Indeed, many studies show that skiing can help people to lose weight, increase their stamina, strengthen the cardiovascular system and even immunity, and improve respiratory function. It may seem that, compared to...

    In a move to increase visitors by 2020, the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, has invited three of the world’s leading snowboarders to tour his country’s new Masikryong ski resort in January. Terje Haakonsen, Dan Liedahl—known as “Danimals”—and Mike Ravelson will visit the resort at the summit of the 4,460-foot Taehwa Peak near Wonson, a port city on North Korea’s east coast, according to a press release from Uri Tours, a New York-based company that describes itself as “facilitating travel to North Korea.” The tour is also open to members of the public, with a single ticket (for seven nights...

    Three Americans hikers were imprisoned in Iran after crossing the border from Iraq. Are you concerned about safety? Yeah, that was a sketchy situation, but we're covering all of our bases and getting permission from their government to travel there. We'll be smart and abide by all of the rules. Not saying there's not a chance that something will go down, but that's what makes it an adventure. Speaking of prisoners, we have the highest amount of imprisoned people for the longest durations of time of any country in the entire world. More than 2.3 million people are locked up...

    The quick and the dread BY DAVE BARRY Miami Herald (This classic Dave Barry column was originally published on Feb. 12, 1995.) When you're 47 years old, you sometimes hear a small voice inside you that says: ``Just because you've reached middle age, that doesn't mean you shouldn't take on new challenges and seek new adventures. You get only one ride on this crazy carousel we call life, and by golly you should make the most of it!'' This is the voice of Satan. I know this because recently, on a mountain in Idaho, I listened to this voice, and...

Here's the CNN summary of the charges and countercharges so far: Underscoring the Bush attacks was a new television ad showing Kerry windsurfing to the strains of the "Blue Danube" waltz. A narrator reads a list of what the Bush campaign contends are the senator's vacillating positions on the Iraq war, education and Medicare. The ad ends with the tag line: "John Kerry. Whichever...
