The planet fired a warning shot that says: "Shape up or join the growing list of endangered species." MY TAKE We seem to plow through life without much concern for anything except what's actually in front of us. We are at the disposal and mercy of the big corporations and a corrupt form of government. They tell us what we need to hear, what to buy, what to eat, how to live, and where. We have a planet situation called climate change or global warming. It's serious. But only to the people who know the facts and the science. The people who should be in our corner, consider it a hoax, fake and deny it even exists. They get their marching orders from the fossil fuel industry and that means money in the bank. Money, of course, is the holy grail and we'll do almost anything to get it. It's at the root of all political power bases. We live in a "fake world" and lying is just a way of communicating and doing business -- and business is good.

A middle-aged man cycles. Photograph: Alamy Stock Photo Cycling can hold back the effects of aging and rejuvenate the immu ne system, a study has found. Scientists carried out tests on 125 amateur cyclists aged 55 to 79 and compared them with healthy adults from a wide age group who did not exercise regularly. The findings, outlined in two papers in the journal Aging Cell, showed that the cyclists preserved muscle mass and strength with age while maintaining stable levels of body fat and cholesterol. In men, testosterone levels remained high. More surprisingly, the anti-aging effects of cycling appeared to extend to the immune system. An organ called the thymus, which makes immune cells called T-cells, normally starts to shrink from the age of 20. But the thymuses of older cyclists were found to be generating as many T-cells as those of young people. Prof Janet Lord, director of the Institute of Inflammation and Ag ing at the University
