Before & After Fitness Center General Manager Joe Hanula spends part of some workdays visiting senior centers. He often starts his presentations with this question: By a show of hands, whose best years are in front of them and whose best years are behind them? "It's a very impactful statement because no one wants to feel like they're done," Hanula said. "I want to encourage them they have time left and can create a really good life if they don't give in to inactivity." Dozens of seniors who live in and around the North Tonawanda gym got the message. They pack nine senior fitness classes each week. "The key to life is to keep moving as you get older," said Bob Cochran, former executive director of the Buffalo office of the American Diabetes Association, who takes four or five classes a week with his wife, Terri, a retired social worker. Those over 65 make up roughly half the members of the 4,000-square-foot center on Wheatfield Street near Twin City Highway.

Gregg Doyel [email protected] Published 12:37 p.m. UTC May 26, 2018 INDIANAPOLIS – Josef Newgarden engages his mind as a form of exercise, challenging himself to recite the IndyCar roster as he skips rope – 9, Scott Dixon ... 21, J.R. Hildebrand – because he has thought this through. He thinks everything through. He believes demanding answers from his brain while his body is under stress prepares himself for the mental warfare of racing 500 miles at speeds reaching 230 mph, as he will do Sunday in the 102nd Indianapolis 500. Newgarden is a big believer in that, getting in his cardio as he works out his cerebellum. Or maybe that’s his cerebrum. Another dilemma for Newgarden to solve, another answer for him to seek.

Smith/ProPublica Looking for news you can trust?Subscribe to our free newsletters. This story was originally co-published by The Atlantic and ProPublica. Two weeks before the presidential election, Donald Trump flew into a faded textile town in North Carolina and riled up the crowd over one of his campaign’s signature promises: bringing back the jobs that businesses had shipped overseas. “They wouldn’t be doing it if I was president,” Trump said to cheers. “Believe me, when they say, ‘We want to send our product’—whatever the hell they make—‘We want to send our product back into the United States,’ I’d say, ‘We’d love to have your product—35 percent tax.
