Belinda Norton Looks Better in her 40s than in her 20s thanks to Resistance Training


Belinda Norton, 45, from Australia, struggled with obesity all her life, and then managed to lose 19 kilograms.

This teacher is very popular on Instagram, and she became popular for her fitness story and weight loss tips. Until the age of 35, she struggled with excess weight and cellulite.

“I always tried to lose weight with rigorous diets and I managed to lose 5-6 kilograms, but after a month the kilograms just came back. It took me a long time to realize that fad diets are not the key to good looks. “If you want to look good, you have to eat, but also choose the right foods.”

 

Her diet is based on lean meats, vegetables, fruits and large amounts of water she drinks daily.

She also trains at least twice a week and recommends weight training instead of cardio.

“Try to run less and do less cardio training. “I found that running too much was counterproductive to my body shape.”

“Basically all women think that with endless cardio training they will lose the most weight, but this is simply not true. Resistance exercises produce much better results. This way, you melt the excess body-fat and at the same time you increase and shape your muscle mass.

“Once I started practicing this type of exercise (resistance training), I put my weight in order.”

The recipe for a slim line is not difficult, Norton claims.

“If you want to get rid of fat and cellulite, ‘throw yourself’ into strength training and body shaping,” she concludes.

Man, in his 20s, is stabbed to death on Manhattan subway platform after argument with commuter


A man has died after he was repeatedly stabbed in the legs following a dispute on a lower Manhattan subway station in New York City on Saturday, officials revealed.

The attack unfolded just before 3pm on the northbound J/Z train platform in Chambers Street Station, near to City Hall, where the victim, in his 20s, had been ensnared in an argument with another man, said to be in his 30s.

The cause of the dispute is unknown, but the altercation quickly turned violent.

During the scuffle, the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed the victim ‘multiple times’ in each of his legs, according to the NYPD.

Police were called but the attacker fled before officers arrived on scene.

Images of the suspect were released by police on Sunday morning. He was described by police as a man with long black hair who is believed to be about 30 years old and is roughly 5’5″ tall and 150 pounds

Images captured by the NY Post paint a grisly scene, with a pool of blood seen at the foot of a stairwell, and an incapacitated man on the floor being attended to by a group of officers.

The victim was rushed to the Beekman Downtown Hospital where he was later pronounced dead around 40 minutes after arriving. He suffered numerous stab wounds to both of his legs.

Police have not yet publicly identified the victim as they reportedly attempt to locate his next of kin.

The attacker was described by police as a man with long black hair who is believed to be about 30 years old and is roughly 5’5″ tall and 150 pounds.  

He was last seen wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, according to police.

After the stabbing, police detained a man at the scene who identified himself as the victim’s cousin.

He had blood on his face, appearing to be from a cut, and on his shirt, the New York Daily News reported.

The man resisted as cops attempted to detain him and put him in the back of a patrol vehicle.

Officers reportedly assured the man he wasn’t under arrest, but said they needed to handcuff him before driving him to a police precinct.

The circumstances around the temporary detainment were not immediately clear. His hand cuffs were removed before officers drove away, the Daily News reported.

No arrests have so far been made in the case as of Sunday morning, police said. A motive is not yet known.

Commuters told CBS New York that news of the stabbing was concerning and unnerving.

‘We’ve got a 20-year-old, 14-year-old, 12-year-old, and I worry about that because they are my grandkids,’ Andrea Rodriguez said to the network.

‘This is the world we live in. It’s getting crazier, stressful day by day,’ Selina Tricoche said. ‘For that to happen, that’s scary.’

Just over 12 hours later, in the early hours of Sunday morning, a second stabbing occurred at 260 W 40th Street, outside the AC Hotel in Times Square at around 4:29am.

Police remained at the scene investigating throughout the early hours.

The NYPD told DailyMail.com that the circumstances surrounding the stabbing are not immediately clear, though the victim was assaulted and then stabbed. 

The extent of the victim’s injuries were not immediately disclosed, but an NYPD spokesperson said the victim is ‘not likely to die’. 

Footage from the scene shows an overturned City bike overturned out the front of AC Hotel, next to what appeared to be a discarded carrier bag. 

Police do not have a description of the attacker and no arrests have been made, police said.   

Violent crime in the Big Apple continued to surge throughout September and into October, data shows.

The number of September shooting incidents in the city increased 127 percent year-over-year from 67 shootings in 2019 to 152 shootings in 2020; September murders spiked 40 percent from 246 people killed in 2019 to 344 people killed in 2020.

Four aged in their 20s killed in horrific crash on Nerang-Murwillumbah Road road ‘known’ for accidents


Police have identified four young people who died in a two-vehicle crash on a major hinterland road on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

The group was travelling in a sedan on the Nerang-Murwillumbah Road at Advancetown early on Saturday afternoon.

Police said it appeared the car lost control on a bend and slid into the path of an oncoming ute.

All four died at the scene.

Police said they were a 22-year-old woman from Brisbane, a 20-year-old woman from Emerald, and a 20-year-old man and 21-year-old woman, both from Townsville.

The ABC understands the four young people who died were Lochlan Parker, Katrina McKeough, Courtney Smith and Kirsten Van Gorp.

The driver of the ute, a 31-year-old man, survived with minor injuries.

Emergency crews described the scene as horrific and said the road was “known” for crashes.

Gold Coast City councillor Glenn Tozer said the hinterland community was in shock.

“It’s a tragic circumstance we’ve had to face as a community out this way,” he said.

“I think for many years now, it has been identified that the road is due for some significant safety upgrades, particularly in the wet, rainy weather.”

Cr Tozer said more than $30 million had recently been allocated for an upgrade to Nerang-Murwillumbah Road.

“It’s just terribly sad that this tragedy has occurred before that funding could materialise into the construction of safety improvement,” Cr Tozer said.

Paramedics found four people in traumatic cardiac arrest and one with minor injuries.

‘Terrible time of loss and grief’

Queensland Treasurer Cameron Dick said the deaths of the four young people were terrible.

“There are families that are suffering today as a result of the loss of the lives of four young Queenslanders,” Mr Dick said.

“It’s a terrible, terrible incident and I express my sympathies to the families, as everyone here does today, going through a terrible time of loss and grief.”

Mr Dick said the added tragedy of the death of an international tourist on Fraser Island was a “reminder for all of us to stay safe on the roads”.

“These are really troubling times and difficult times for Queenslanders,” Mr Dick said.

“Any loss of life is a tragedy, particularly at a difficult time like this when we’re all struggling in our own ways to fight back against COVID, so all of these losses are very significant.”

Queensland Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington said her thoughts were also with the first responders at the scene.

“We’ve heard that it was the most horrific case that one of the first responders has ever been to,” Ms Frecklington said.

“When you’ve heard that four young lives have been lost on that notorious stretch of road, enough is enough.”

Mystery as Kawasaki-like illness linked to coronavirus now affecting people in 20s – World News


A severe Kawasaki-like illness which has affected children during the coronavirus pandemic is now being reported in young adults.

Doctors in the US say several patients in their 20s are in hospital with the life-threatening inflammatory condition, Washington Post reports.

A 20-year-old is being treated in San Diego, California, while several young adults are being cared for in New York City.

Worryingly, it appears that in teens and young adults, the mysterious syndrome leads to a more “overwhelming” response affecting the heart and other organs.

Dr Jennifer Lighter, a specialist in paediatric infectious disease at New York University’s Langone hospital, says that while younger children tend to suffer symptoms that look like traditional Kawasaki, older patients “have had a more severe course”.

The cases have led to fears children are more vulnerable to Covid-19 than previously thought

Doctors have now reported seeing children with the illness – known as paediatric inflammatory multi-system syndrome (PIMS) – in the UK, US, France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.

The Mirror last week reported on the tragic death of eight-month-old Alexander Parsons, from Plymouth, in his mother’s arms after being struck down with the condition.

New York City alone has recorded 147 children with the condition, a number which has increased despite a drop in coronavirus cases.

The link between the PIMS – which appears to cause fever, rashes and shock or low blood pressure – and Covid-19 remains unclear.

Several adults are now hospitalised with the syndrome in New York

While some young patients have tested positive for the flu-like virus, others have tested negative.

However, some medics now believe that coronaviruses could trigger Kawasaki-like symptoms.

Coronavirus outbreak

The World Health Organization has said the condition, which affects children and teens who suffer a fever for more than three days, has become more common during the global pandemic.

The cases have raised fears that the coronavirus could pose a greater risk to young people than previously thought.

“We know so far very little about this inflammatory syndrome,” WHO epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove warns.
