Romney Warns GOP: ‘Exercise Great Care’ Against Gov’t Shutdown

But we need to exercise great care about any talk of shutting down government,” Romney said in the first speech of its kind since his November election loss to Obama. “What would come next when soldiers aren’t paid, when seniors fear for their Medicare and Social Security, and when the FBI is off duty?” He continued: “I’m afraid that in the final analysis, Obamacare would get its funding, our party would suffer in the next elections, and the people of the nation would not be happy. I think there are better ways to remove Obamacare.” Romney did not criticize anyone by name, but he dismissed the very strategy employed by some of his party’s biggest names potential 2016 presidential candidates among them. Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah are urging Republicans to swear off voting for any year-end spending bill that includes money for the president’s health care law.

How Regular Exercise Can Calm Anxiety

“Just being able to work in a partnership with them and accomplish a mission. There is so much of a difference in our tactics and the way we communicate, but we still worked together. It was really inspiring.” “It was a culture shock when I got here,” Bateman said. “I felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb. Then after interacting those first couple days with their army, everyone seemed to have really open arms and were really welcoming. I wasn’t an outsider, I was a visitor.” Although the weeks of training went by fast, there was plenty of time to make lasting connections between the two forces. “I made some good friends over here, ones I’ll keep in touch with for years to come,” Bateman said.

Exercise Lightning Strike Comes to a Close

However, the mice that were regular runners adapted quickly and were able to “cope” with the anxiety much more rapidly than the sedentary mice, who still showed signs of stress and anxiety long after their counterpart group had calmed down. “What all of this suggests,” says Elizabeth Gould, director of the Gould Lab at Princeton, who wrote the paper with her graduate student Timothy Schoenfeld, now at the National Institute of Mental Health, and others, “is that the hippocampus of runners is vastly different from that of sedentary animals. Not only are there more excitatory neurons and more excitatory synapses, but the inhibitory neurons are more likely to become activated, presumably to dampen the excitatory neurons, in response to stress.” The findings were published in The Journal of Neuroscience. It’s important to note that this study examined long-term training responses. The runners’ wheels had been locked for 24 hours before their cold bath, so they would gain no acute calming effect from exercise. Instead, the difference in stress response between the runners and the sedentary animals reflected fundamental remodeling of their brains.
