Furthermore, the engine is hand-built at a Michigan factory with unique pistons and other special parts. The vehicle will be able to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in just about 3.5 seconds!

A Simple Secret To Living A Longer Life, According To Science

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

DoYouRemember? Nostalgia Lives Here

A recent study showed that one of the best things you can do if you want to live a longer life is to start your day with a smoothie. Smoothies, or simply eating foods that contain flavonoids, can protect against cancer and heart disease and help you live a long, healthy life.

The study also showed that this could be the most beneficial for those who smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol frequently. The study was done by researchers at Australia’s Edith Cowan University. They studied over 53,000 people from Denmark for 23 years! Their research consistently showed that people who consumed higher levels of flavonoids were less likely to die from cancer or heart disease.

So, what exactly are flavonoids? Basically, flavonoids are plant chemicals in most fruits and vegetables. They are generally responsible for those bright colors. Some of the best fresh ingredients to eat or add to a smoothie are apples, berries, kale, broccoli, and even green tea.

According to Inc., lead researcher, Dr. Nicola Bondonno said, “These findings are important as they highlight the potential to prevent cancer and heart disease by encouraging the consumption of flavonoid-rich foods, particularly in people at high risk of these chronic diseases.”

“But it’s also important to note that flavonoid consumption does not counteract all of the increased risk of death caused by smoking and high alcohol consumption,” she added. “By far the best thing to do for your health is to quit smoking and cut down on alcohol.”

Dr. Bondonno also gave an example of how easy it can be to get more than enough flavonoids in your daily diet. She recommends about 500 mg each day.

“It’s important to consume a variety of different flavonoid compounds found in different plant-based food and drink,” Bondonno explained. “This is easily achievable through the diet: one cup of tea, one apple, one orange, 100 g of blueberries, and 100 g of broccoli would provide a wide range of flavonoid compounds and over 500 mg of total flavonoids.”

Flavonoids are known to be anti-inflammatory and also improve your blood vessel function. This is how they can help prevent cancer and heart disease, which are two of the biggest killers in the United States.

It can’t hurt to get more fruits and vegetables in per day for a longer life! Do you enjoy a smoothie in the morning?

Get the recipe for a flavonoid-filled smoothie below:

INGREDIENTS
2 cups fresh kale
1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
2 oranges (peeled)
1 cup pineapple
1 banana
1/4 avocado

INSTRUCTIONS
Blend kale, almond milk, and oranges together until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients and blend again.

NOTES
Use at least one frozen fruit to make smoothie cold.

Richard Gere Delivers Food and Water to 121 People Stuck Aboard Ship in the Mediterranean

Actor Richard Gere has recently paused his holiday in Italy and has embarked on a humanitarian mission instead. He has delivered food and water to a total of 121 migrants, including 32 children, who are currently stuck aboard a ship in the Mediterranean Sea. They have been aboard the ship for 8 days and counting.

The migrants are stuck on the Spanish humanitarian ship Open Arms. Gere reaches out to the Spanish charity, asking how he can help. He then loads up a boat with supplies and heads from the Italian island of Lampedusa straight to the ship.

While there, the actor spoke to several of the migrants on board. He finds out that these migrants had fled war-torn Libya. Among the migrants were families aboard the boat with babies. When asked about the experience, Gere says, “The most important thing for these people here is to be able to get to a free port, to get off the boat, to get on land and start a new life.”

Surprisingly, other European countries have yet to respond to the aid group’s request. The International Organization for Migration says that a total of 840 people have died this year trying to cross the Mediterranean from North Africa to Europe.

A video has been posted of Gere helping out on the migrant ship. Take a look at the video below! What a kind and generous gesture to help these people out.

We love Richard Gere here at DYR! Last we heard from him, he and his wife would welcome a baby boy into the world just 6 months ago. Take a look at the story here!

When Priscilla Presley stopped by TODAY to give an update on Graceland’s upcoming plans, she also gave an update on her family. She confirms that her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, is “doing well.” Priscilla says she is “worried” about the tell-all book that her daughter plans to release, including details about her late father and ex-husband Michael Jackson.

“The [twins] are great, they’re almost 11 years old now,” Priscilla continues. “Time is flying by so fast.”

The 74-year-old grandmother took the opportunity to really gush about her twin granddaughters and it’s pretty adorable. “I think they’re quite talented actually,” Priscilla says. “They were in ballet and dance class and opera, so they’re testing the waters a little bit.”

Sounds like the whole family has been keeping busy with their creative work! While Lisa Marie is working on her new book, Priscilla is working closely with director Baz Luhrmann on a biopic about the late King of Rock and Roll. Priscilla says that the family is “very much involved” with the creative process of the film.

Priscilla continues on about the upcoming biopic, “It’s going to be a very interesting picture… Of course, [with] Baz, it’s going to be stylized very different and [be] a different take, something quite honest. We’re really looking forward to it.”

The biopic is currently starring Austin Butler as Elvis and Tom Hanks as his controversial manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Priscilla also gives her thoughts about what Elvis would think about the biopic if he were alive today. “He would not believe it,” she says. “Truly, he would not believe it.”

Lisa Marie Presley’s new book

As far as Lisa Marie’s new book deal goes, we’re all curious to see what new details could arise about the people involved.

“There was a very profound point in the marriage when he had to make a decision. Was it the drugs and the sort of vampires, or me? And he pushed me away.” Lisa Marie says about being with Michael Jackson. “The one thing that correlates with Michael and with my father on this subject is that they had the luxury of creating whatever reality around them they wanted to create.”

Henry Winkler Shares A Story Of How Fonzie Saved A Young Fan’s Life

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

DoYouRemember? Nostalgia Lives Here

Henry Winkler recently appeared on the talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! He opened up about the time he saved a fan’s life, by talking to him on the phone as Fonzie. Henry is best known for his role as Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli (“Fonzie” or “the Fonz”) on Happy Days. Currently, he acts on the show Barry.

Jimmy Kimmel asked Henry about something that stood out in his career. Henry opened up about one time when he was on the set of Happy Days. He said there was a spot for two phones. One was an inside line to the studio and the other was an outside line. One day, there was a phone call for him on the outside line.

How Henry as Fonzie saved a fan’s life

On the other line was a state trooper from Illinois. He had a 17-year-old kid on the ledge. The police were doing everything they could to save the kid. He was still threatening to jump off, but he said he only wanted to talk to Fonzie.

Henry admits he doesn’t know to this day where he got the nerve, but he took the phone and started talking to the kid as Fonzie. He asked the kid’s name and age. Henry (as Fonzie) then asked the boy why he wanted to jump. He said he wanted to be an actor.

Then Henry asked the boy if he had a record collection, as records were very popular back then. He tried joking around with the boy and asked that before he jumped, will he will the record collection to him? He then said to the boy, if you get off the ledge, we will talk acting. And that’s just what happened. Henry saved that boy’s life.

He told the boy that he didn’t get the role of Fonzie, which really took his career in a new direction until he was 27 years old. The boy was only 17, so he shouldn’t be so down that he hasn’t made it yet.

What a great story! Now, we wonder where that kid is now. We hope that he changed his life around with the advice from good ‘ole Fonzie himself.

Henry Winkler has also opened up recently about his struggles with dyslexia and self-doubt.
