Indoor vs. outdoor exercise: Which is more productive?
The Tampa Tribune via Athletic Business
People tend to lean heavily on the gym when it comes to exercise, even in places where summer is endless. The gym is just an easy concept: You go, the machines are right there, you get the workout done, and you leave. Is it better for your body, health, and fitness goals to work out outdoors, where terrain varies and nothing is as smooth as the treadmill belt or class floor?

Nielsen plans to formally release the number, which sets a record for the most-watched soccer game in the U.S.

What women need to know about sports injuries
WomensHealth.com
The benefits of playing sports are well known, but the impact may be greater for females. According to the Women's Sports Foundation, high school girls are less likely to get pregnant and more likely to do better academically if they participate in sports. Girls and women also have more confidence, self-esteem, and lower levels of depression. The downside of all this physical activity is that it comes with risk. Women tend to be more susceptible to certain injuries as well as sports or exercise-related issues.

For now, AT&T Stadium no longer seems in plans for Texas title games
USA Today
When the NFL released its 2015 regular-season schedule, the league announced a Dallas Cowboys home game at AT&T Stadium that conflicted with a date earmarked for Texas' University Interscholastic League's football state championships. UIL blamed "miscommunication" for the double booking, while the Cowboys made clear that they desperately wanted to keep the UIL games. It now appears that isn't likely, according to a UIL spokesperson.

University of California Riverside via ScienceDaily
What impact can exercise done early in life have on the propensity for exercising during the adult years? Researchers did experiments on mice in the lab to find out. They found that early-age exercise in mice has positive effects on adult levels of voluntary exercise in addition to reducing body mass — results that may have relevance for the public policy debates concerning the importance of physical education for children.

Is the FDA's trans fat ban really the answer to our obesity epidemic?
By Natalie Rodriguez
The time has finally come for Americans to wave goodbye to their toxic friend trans fat — a veteran contributor to heart disease in the United States. Trans fat extends the shelf life of our favorite processed foods, along with assisting in taste and texture. In 2013, the Food and Drug Administration issued a preliminary finding indicating that partially hydrogenated oils were not "generally recognized as safe," and recently finalized the determination.

Delaware developer adjusts sports complex plan for locals
The News Journal
The developers of a large youth sports complex that would be built at the southwest corner of Middletown, Delaware yielded to community concerns about increased traffic and glare from nighttime field lights with an announcement that those issues are now non-issues. The south portion of the planned 170-acre Delaware Sports Complex, a pay-for-play facility geared primarily toward traveling teams and tournament play, won't include field lighting. And developers say a planned third entrance to the facility that could have created unwanted congestion directly across the road from The Estates at Saint Anne's housing development has now been eliminated.

Screen addiction is taking a toll on children
The New York Times
Excessive use of computer games among young people in China appears to be taking an alarming turn and may have particular relevance for American parents whose children spend many hours a day focused on electronic screens. The documentary "Web Junkie," to be shown on PBS, highlights the tragic effects on teenagers who become hooked on video games, playing for dozens of hours at a time often without breaks to eat, sleep or even use the bathroom. Many come to view the real world as fake.
