Wide waist with ‘normal weight’ bigger risk than obesity — study

People of "normal" weight who sport a wide waist are more at risk of heart problems than obese people, said researchers Friday, urging a rethink of healthy weight guidelines. How fat is distributed on a person's frame determined disease risk as much as how much fat they had overall, according to an investigation of nearly 1,700 people aged 45 and over. Even people who are not classified overweight on the Body Mass Index (BMI) scale, should be concerned if they had an "apple" shape with a waist wider than their hips, said research leader Jose Medina-Inojosa of the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Such excess fat around the middle is called "central obesity". "Current gu...Keep on reading: Wide waist with ‘normal weight’ bigger risk than obesity — study.....»»

Perpetual, EAC forge NCAA men s beach volleyball title showdown

University of Perpetual Help duo Rey Taneo and Joebert Almodiel trounced Jhonel Badua and Joeward Presnede twice in the Final Four to clinch a return trip to the championship round against Emilio Aguinaldo College’s Joshua Mina and Paolo Cezar Lim in the 93rd NCAA men’s beach volleyball tournament at the Boardwalk in Subic Bay, Zambales. Needing two wins to advance, Almodiel and Taneo pulled off 21-12, 21-14 and 23-21, 21-9 victories over Badua and Presnede to clinch the last slot to the knockout Final against Mina and Lim, who downed Letran’s Bobby Gatdula and Christopher Cistina, 21-9, 22-20, Saturday. The win thus gave the Las Pinas-based school a chance to claim a second straight title after Taneo and brother Relan won it all a season ago. “We hope to make my last season at Perpetual Help memorable with another championship,” said Taneo, the Finals MVP and one of the vital cogs in the Altas’ title run in NCAA indoor volleyball two weeks ago. For Mina and Lim, they hope to give EAC its very first men’s crown.

Viray twins power San Beda in elims sweep

San Beda University’s Jiezela and Nieza Viray routed Letran’s Miracle Mhae Mendoza and Charm Simborio, 21-15, 21-8, Friday to complete a nine-game elimination round sweep in the 93rd NCAA women’s beach volleyball tournament at the Boardwalk in Subic Bay, Zambales.

Daguil and Torres made it through by beating San Sebastian’s Alyssa Eroa and Daurene Santos and Jose Rizal’s Shola Alvarez and Dolly Grace Versoza via tiebreak. Tied with 5-4 records, Daguil and Torres garnered 1.227 quotient points as against the 0.990 by Eroa and Santos and 0.817 by Alvarez and Verzosa.

The league has done away with the rule of a team advancing straight to the finals with an elims sweep.
