CHIL wants to improve healthcare in African schools

Asalaam alaikum,

YouTube Premium is introducing several features to attract and retain subscribers.

iOS and web Premium subscribers will get an enhanced bitrate version of YouTube’s 1080p HD video quality in the coming weeks.

While 1080p will still be available to all users, YouTube says the enhanced version will make all videos look “extra crisp and clear,” including those with a lot of motion and detail, like sports and gaming.

Premium users also get more control over their queue by adding videos when watching on phones and tablets.

What’s more, higher-quality videos will now be available for web and iOS users. There’ll also be support for co-watching videos on FaceTime via Apple’s SharePlay and other controls for managing queues on mobile devices.

Here’s what I’ve got for you today:

  • You have no excuse not to exercise
  • Africans holding B-1 and B-2 visas can apply for US jobs
  • CHIL wants to make healthcare accessible in African schools

Do you work out every week? Well, not to be the bearer of bad news, but if you don’t, you risk developing non-communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and obesity.

NCDs are the leading cause of death worldwide and an emerging threat to global health.

In sub-Saharan Africa, NCDs will reportedly surpass communicable, maternal, neonatal, and nutritional (CMNN) diseases as the leading cause of death by 2023.

But why? One reason is rapid urbanisation, causing lifestyle and dietary changes, with more people consuming highly processed foods high in salt, sugar, and unhealthy fats.

Technology advancements have also led to a rise in sedentary lifestyles and a consequent decline in physical activity levels.

However, regular exercise can improve cardiovascular health, muscular strength, and flexibility while reducing the risk of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that adults between 18 and 64 years engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity, at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity, or an equivalent combination of both weekly.

Adults should engage in 300 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week, or the equivalent, for additional health benefits. They can also dedicate two or more days a week to performing exercises that target muscle groups.

So, whether you work from home or have a 9–5 schedule, it would help if you incorporated physical activities into your workday.

Your hectic work schedule, anxiety, lack of money, motivation, fitness knowledge, or access to gyms is not enough reason not to exercise because technology is eliminating these barriers.
