Ashley Street:

"The Harlem of the South"

Ashley Street was the core of black life in Jacksonville before Integration. During its heyday, the four blocks from Broad to Davis Streets was known as the Harlem of the South. Not much is left of this once vibrant entertainment district today. Click on link below for more.

It was never about a hot dog and a Coke®!” 

is subtitled

A Personal Account of the 1960 Sit-in Demonstrations in Jacksonville, Florida and Ax Handle Saturday”. 

It is Hurst’s  personal eyewitness account, as President of the Jacksonville Florida Youth Council NAACP, of the events leading up to, and the fallout from, the bloody events of August 27, 1960.  On that day, 200 ax handle and baseball bat wielding whites attacked members of the Jacksonville Youth Council NAACP, who were “sitting-in” at white lunch counters in downtown Jacksonville peacefully protesting segregation. Part memoir, part history and part biography, “It was never about a hot dog and a Coke®!” provides a chronicle of those pivotal events whether you were there, only heard the stories, or, as is the case with so many people today, know next to nothing about the violent years of the Civil Rights ...  more

 LIVE YOUNGER LONGER!

(Caution this article is only for those who are looking for a way to reduce or stop joint and muscle pain, get more energy, reduce wrinkles, reduce risk of diseases, reduce or eliminate stress, look better and live younger longer.)

by Ken Solomon

"OUR LIVES ARE THE RESULT OF OUR CHOICES."

Choose Negatively, Get Negative Results. Choose Positively, Get Positive Results.

As we get more “candles on the cake”, we begin to realize that our most valuable asset is our health. I would venture to say that nearly every person reading this would agree with that statement.  To have a quality life, we start with quality health.  The quality of our health should be number one on our list, but of course, it is not.  The purpose of this article is to shine the spotlight on our most valuable asset by introducing a very simple checklist that can make a positive difference in our lives.

I call it PAYING YOUR DEWS (Diet, Exercise, Water, and Sleep).  These are the pillars of good health. Before I go on, I want to state that I am well aware that we all have our individual challenges, abilities and disabilities.  What is being addressed here is our general health and our individual ability to be the very best that each of us can be … by paying our DEWS.  Of course, we should consult our doctor before trying anything that involves our most valuable asset.

DIET.  Let's make this easy, eat whatever you like.  I don't believe in diets, so this is not about dieting.  It is about putting the right kind of oil in our engines and the right amount of gas in the tank of our vintage Rolls Royce.  If you are like me, you don't always eat right.  So make it easy and take a multiple vitamin/mineral supplement, tumeric, one-a-day fish oil capsule, and extra vitamin D.  Easy.  As we age, our immune system begins to fall down on the job and starts letting diseases that we never had before attack us.  I see a lot of you shaking your heads in agreement.   “Never suffered with that until I turned forty”.  When taken daily, the vitamins and stuff will help ward off new attacks of unknown diseases, like fortifying the walls of your fort because the soldiers are not up to snuff.  Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Now let's be adult about this, if you are an average build and have a net consumption of more than two thousand calories per day, you are probably overweight, maybe even obese.  We all know the reasons why that is not a good thing.  Keep it simple, if you want to be in the best of health, eat less.  It’s a choice.  Eat whatever you like, just eat less.  Since you are doing the vitamin thing, what you eat is not as important as the amount you eat.  Diets don’t work so the only key that works is to just start eating less for the rest of your life.  I love Tasty Kake Chocolate Éclairs, which have over 600 calories for such a little pie. I still eat them, but I take a 100 calorie bite or two and throw the 400 calories away.  I love me more.  Sometimes it is not easy but I remind myself that I'm in it for the long run.  I believe that there is a greater power that determines the length of my life, but I am given reign over the quality of my health, through my power of choice.

Exercise.  There is no getting around it; you have to exercise. 30 minutes a day, five days a week will Spice Up Your Life!  Exercising regularly can bring adventure into your life!   Instead of seeing exercising as being boring and going through the motions, consider a variety of things such as dancing, walking, and several other physical activities. There is something that you enjoy doing.  Find it and do it.  It is a choice that will change your life!

Are you looking for a way to accelerate your metabolism and lose some weight?  Well, I have great news for you!  Exercise will increase your metabolism and allow you to burn off extra calories, even in sedentary jobs.  Do you want Increased Energy?  When we exercise regularly, we create the energy needed to make it through the entire day.  How about the ability to Sleep Better?  If you exercise regularly, you will allow your body to fall asleep faster and deeper. Many people do some form of exercise just to relieve stress and it works like a charm.  Exercising stimulates certain brain chemicals and can help you feel much better if you are having a stressful day.  With a good exercise program and a diet that has the right nutrients in it, you will immediately see the change in your body composition.  You will be able to achieve your weight loss goals easier, display a healthier physique and feel better about yourself and your body.  A better life for 30 minutes a day. Choices.

Water.  If you are not drinking enough water, then here is what you are experiencing ... fatigue, weakness, muscle and joint pain, wrinkled and dry skin, dry hair, increased heart rate, excess weight and of course, headaches.  You are mostly water; it is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight.  Every system in your body depends on water.  For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells, and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.  Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you do not have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions.  Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired.  For your body to function properly, you must replenish its water supply by consuming beverages and foods that contain water.  So how much water does the average healthy adult need? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) of water a day.  The AI for women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of water a day.  The most powerful medicine available cures many ills, if we choose to use it.

Sleep.  Okay, so we are taking our vitamins, exercising, and drinking our water.  Now for the part that makes it all work … SLEEP.  I liken this part to baking a cake.  You can take all of the ingredients and mix them up and put them in a pan but if you never put the pan in the oven to bake or you do not bake it long enough, well you just have a mess.  If you don’t do this part right everything else would have been for naught.  You need sleep to allow the nutrients and water to work with your cells to build your fort.  You need sleep to allow your body to recover and recreate from your exercising.  Sleep is not merely a time when your body shuts off.  While you rest, your brain stays busy, overseeing a wide variety of biological maintenance that keeps your body running in top condition, preparing you for the day ahead.  Without enough hours of restorative sleep, you won’t be able to work, learn, create, and communicate at a level even close to your true potential.  As you start getting the sleep you need, your energy and efficiency will go up.

While sleep requirements vary slightly from person to person, most healthy adults need between 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best.  And despite the notion that our sleep needs decrease with age, older people, like myself, still need at least 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep. Older adults who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to suffer from depression, attention and memory problems, and excessive daytime sleepiness.  On the other hand, proper sleep can reduce the risk of many serious health problems in older adults, including a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, weight problems, and breast cancer in women. SLEEP, no other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort!  Easy choice.

Pay your DEWS and Live Younger Longer.  Your Choice, isn’t it?

Why Exercise Matters

There are many reasons you should stay physically active, especially if you want to live a long life.

It can help:

  • Keep your bones, muscles, and joints healthy
  • Lower your chances of things like diabetes, colon cancer, and osteoporosis
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Manage stress and improve your mood
  • Ease symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Lower your risk of heart disease
  • Manage chronic conditions like arthritis or diabetes, by improving symptoms like stamina, joint swelling, pain, and muscle strength
  • With balance, so you're less likely to fall and fracture bones

How Much Exercise?

Sometimes as you get older, you may be a bit fearful of exercise. Maybe you think you might hurt yourself. You may believe you have to join a gym. Or you may not be sure what exercises you should do.

The key thing isn't how or where you get active, it's just to start moving.

Healthy adults should shoot for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity, aerobic activity every week. Sure, you can do that in exercise classes. But you can also get it by brisk walking. It's also important to do movements that work all your major muscles at least 2 days a week. Also try to do flexibility exercises 2 or 3 days a week to improve your range of motion.

Exercise May Slow Brain Aging by 10 Years for Older People

Exercise in older people is associated with a slower rate of decline in thinking skills that occurs with aging. People who reported light to no exercise experienced a decline equal to 10 more years of aging as compared to people who reported moderate to intense exercise, according to a population-based observational study published in the March 23, 2016, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
