Amanda Seyfried, Thomas Sadoski reveal birth of second child while spotlighting charities


Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski are growing their family.

The couple have welcomed their second child together, Sadoski’s representative, Erica Gray, confirmed to USA TODAY on Monday. Seyfried and Sadoski shared the news in a joint statement to INARA and War Child USA, which the charities posted on their Instagram accounts.

“Since the birth of our daughter 3 years ago our commitment to the innocent children that are so brutally affected by conflict and war has been a driving force in our lives,” read the statement. “With the birth of our son the work of INARA and War Child has become our North Star.”

Along with the statement, the couple shared a picture of their newborn son.

Sadoski later re-posted the statement and image on his own Instagram, asking for donations to the two organizations that seek to protect children impacted by war.

USA TODAY has reached out to Seyfried’s and Sadoski’s reps for more details.

Seyfried and Sadoski first met on Broadway in 2015 as co-stars in “The Way We Get By,” a Neil LaBute play about a one-night stand, and began dating while shooting their 2017 film “The Last Word.” Seyfried’s publicist, Evelyn Karamanos, confirmed the couple’s engagement to USA TODAY in Sept. 2016.

On March 12, 2017, Sadoski revealed on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” that he and Seyfried had eloped. A week later, Karamanos confirmed to USA TODAY that the couple had welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Nina.

Speaking about fatherhood, Sadoski told Corden, “I’m more excited about this than I’ve ever been about anything in my life and I’m also more terrified about it than anything I’ve ever been in my entire life.”

Gigi Hadid Is a Mom! The Model Gives Birth to First Child With Zayn Malik


NEW YORK, NY - MAY 02:  Zayn Malik (L) and Gigi Hadid attend the

It's a girl! Gigi Hadid has welcomed her first child with Zayn Malik, the singer announced on Twitter Wednesday night. On Sept. 23, Malik revealed the 25-year-old model gave birth to a baby girl. "Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful??❤," he wrote in a tweet. "to try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love i feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding.Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x."

Gigi and Zayn first got together in November 2015, and they've been dating on and off ever since. While news first broke in April that Gigi was pregnant, it was actually her mom, Yolanda Hadid, who confirmed it. "Of course, we are so excited," Yolanda gushed to Dutch outlet RTL Boulevard. "I'm excited to become a Oma [grandma] in September, especially after I lost my mom so recently. But this is the beauty of life: one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed."

Shortly after, Gigi confirmed the news herself with an appearance oRead More – Source




If You Want to Lose Weight, Trainers Recommend These 7 No-Equipment Exercises


We get it: when it comes to weight loss, it feels tough to even get started if you don't have access to a gym, home workout equipment, or even a set of dumbbells. Of course, as you probably know by this point, weight loss has a lot to do with your life outside of exercise, too; aspects like sleep and nutrition play key roles in getting after this goal. No matter how hard you work out, it's important to eat nutritious foods, like vegetables and protein-rich items, to see results. Exercise is only part of the equation.

If you're looking to lose weight without equipment, full-body and compound exercises are a great choice, said ACE-certified trainer Jennifer Nagel. "They use multiple muscle groups at once. With more muscle engagement comes more calorie burn," she explained, because you use more energy when you're working more muscles. "Also, the more lean muscle you build, the more calories you burn at rest."

I know what you're thinking: I'm here to lose weight, not build muscle! Actually, the two go hand in hand. When you gain muscle, you increase your resting metabolic rate (RMR), the number of calories your body needs at rest to perform basic functions (think: breathing) that keep you alive. Increasing your RMR means you burn more calories even when you're not exercising. And while lifting weights is typically the recommendation for building muscle, you can also increase your muscle and therefore improve your RMR through bodyweight exercises like the ones ahead.

For bodyweight work specifically, aim to work out three to five days a week. Within each workout, try to complete high reps and sets of each exercise; three to five sets of 15 to 20 reps per exercise is a good goal, Sten Stray-Gunderson, MS, an exercise physiologist and trainer at Reach Outcome, said in a previous interview with POPSUGAR. (Note that the exercises we have coming up aren't a full workout, but rather a selection of moves you can plug into your routine.)

Ahead, check out eight bodyweight exercises that, when done consistently and paired with a healthy diet, can help you reach your weight loss goals. Some moves work just about every muscle in your body (like burpees) while others target two or three key muscle groups at once; both will typically help you burn more calories than isolated moves like bicep curls and sit-ups.

This is important because, generalRead More – Source

We Hate to Break It to You, but Sweating a Lot Doesn’t Mean Your Workout Is the Best


You've probably seen numerous workouts promising to make you sweat like never before, implying that the sweatier you are, the harder you've worked and the closer you are to achieving your fitness goals. But here's the thing, how much you sweat doesn't determine if you've worked harder, if you're getting stronger, or anything like that. It's just sweat — kind of.

Is Sweat an Indicator of a Good Workout?

If you're wondering if there's a correlation between how much sweat you've produced during a given workout and if it means your training better, Lindsay Baker, PhD, senior principal scientist at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, told POPSUGAR, "No, the two are not necessarily correlated although it can be." While your sweat more than likely isn't an indicator of having an optimal workout, "The intensity that you're working out is definitely an important factor that determines how much you sweat, but it's not the only factor," she explained.

There are many variables that impact how much you sweat, for example, the environment. You'll more than likely sweat less doing an intense HIIT workout indoors with air conditioning versus doing the HIIT workout outdoors in the heat. "There are other factors like how fit you are, how acclimated to the heat you might be, body size, for example, so it's hard to compare," Dr. Baker said. It's especially hard to compare between different people because of all these other factors that impact the amount that you sweat, she continued.

Another thing you have to consider when it comes to sweat is that you could be sweating a lot without knowing how much sweat your body is producing. Sweat doesn't always show up as droplets on your skin, it can also show up on your clothes (hello, butt sweat stains!), or it may not show up at all because it's evaporating into the air when you're in drier environments like Arizona. "For all those reasons, it's not necessarily a perfect indicator of the quality of your workout."

If you're simply comparing yourself to yourself and all the other variables are the same, such as training in the same environmental conditions, a lighter workout such as yoga will result in less sweat than an intense cycling workout because your muscles are working harder.

What Causes People to Sweat During Exercise?

So what exactly causes you to sweat during exercise? According to Dr. Baker, when you work out, your muscles are working and the harder they work the more heat they generate, called metabolic heat production. Your body wants to stay at a safe, core temperature, but the more you move, the warmer your body becomes.

In order for your body to attempt to stay at a safe, core temperate, "what your body does is [it] starts sweating so that you can evaporate that sweat and lose heat in order to maintain body heat balance and keep your core temperature in a safe zone," Dr. Baker explained. Essentially, the more heat your body generates when you exercise, the more you need to sweat in order to lose body heat and maintain a safe heat balance, she said.

Is It Normal to Not Sweat a Lot?

There are heavy sweaters and then there are the people who rarely break a sweat no matter how intense the workout or how hot it is. According Read More – Source




Estée Lauder Is Sending a Product Into Space, Because Even Astronauts Love Their Serums


GPS or Weather Satellite orbiting Earth

As a company, Estée Lauder has done a lot within the beauty industry over the last few decades, but the brand has never launched one of its own products into space — until now. The company announced on Sept. 18 that it's sending one of its star products — the Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex — into space at the end of the month.

According to a release, the serum will be photographed and filmed by the crew aboard the International Space Station for Estée Lauder to later use for promotional purposes on its social media pages. "We are thrilled to reinforce our leadership once again as the first beauty brand to go into space," Stéphane de La Faverie, Estée Lauder's global brand president, said in a statement. "NASA is at the forefront of space exploration, and as a leader in skincare innovation, Estée Lauder is proud to support the incredible work NASA is doing to promote a space economy by being the second-ever commercial product to launch."

This news follows NASA's 2019 pledge open up its space station for business and allow brands to use it for marketing purposes.

"NASA is opening the International Space Station to business as part of the agency's efforts to enable a robust low-Earth orbit economy," Phil McAlister, NASA's director of commercial spaceflight development said. "Agreements like these directly support NASA's broad strategy to facilitate the commercialization of low-Earth orbit by U.S. entities by demonstrating new markets utilizing the unique environment of space."

Barack Obama’s “Fun and Informative” Memoir, A Promised Land, to Release in November


WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 21:  U.S. President Barack Obama delivers remarks during the BET's 'Love and Happiness: A Musical Experience
Get ready to learn all about Barack Obama's political rise with his forthcoming memoir, A Promised Land. On Sept. 17, Crown Publishing Group — a subsidiary of Penguin Random House — shared new details about the book, revealing that it will be split into two volumes. The first installment, which consists of 768 pages to be printed in 25 languages, is set to hit shelves two weeks after the presidential election on Nov. 17. The second volume's release date has not been announced yet.

A Promised Land will detail Barack's life story, highlighting his political endeavors and accomplishments. "I've spent the last few years reflecting on my presidency, and in A Promised Land I've tried to provide an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office: the key events and people who shaped it; my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made; and the political, economic, and cultural forces that my team and I had to confront then — and that as a nation we are grappling with still," the former president said in a statement.

Barack added that the novel will delve into his relationship with Michelle during their professional ventures. "In the book, I've also tried to give readers a sense of the personal journey that Michelle and I went through during those years, with all the incredible highs and lows," he said. "And finally, at a time when America is going through such enormous upheaval, the book offers some of my broader thoughts on how we can heal the divisions in our country going forward and make our democracy work for everybody — a task that won't depend on any single president, but on all of us as engaged citizens. Along with being a fun and informative read, I hope more than anything that the book inspires young people across the country — and around the globe — to take up the baton, lift up their voices, and play their part in remaking the world for the better."

The upcoming release is part of a $65 million multi-book contract that Barack and Michelle signed with Crown Publishing Group shortly after leaving the White House in 2017. Michelle's
