Valmalenco UltraDistance Trail

19/20 July 2019 – Caspoggio (SO)

VUT a technical race, for real high mountain trailers. The race will also qualify for the UTMB (Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc).

The legendary kermesse, which retraces the Alta Via della Valmalenco and its shelters, develops a path that will touch as many as 15 high-altitude accommodation facilities with 4 downhill sections at over 2,600m. All bringing the competitors to cross steep jets, fast single tracks and breathtaking passages at the edge of the glaciers in the Bernina group.

Fully embracing the green spirit of the event, the VUT 2019 will be “plastic free”. Each competitor will then be provided with a special glass that will allow them to quench their thirst along the path without affecting the ecosystem of an area that is as beautiful as it is delicate.

The high mountain safety is essential. As in previous editions, VUT athletes will be monitored with satellite detectors, so as to view the progress of the race in real time. In addition to this, thanks to the partnership with helpcode.life , each trailer will be equipped with an innovative MioID bracelet branded VUT with a QRCode. In case of emergency, it will be possible to trace the identity of the competitor, knowing his medical record, blood group and any allergies. This bracelets can also be a faithful companion for other adventures or future outdoor excursions.

The World down Syndrome day

Today, the 21st of march, is the World down Syndrome day, it is a global awareness initiative that has been created to raise awareness and support for those living with Down syndrome.

There Are many initiatives organized and inform people about what this syndrome represents and what it is not. Especially, to remember how some simple daily gestures (go to school, practice a sport, go out with friends) are still often, a far-off milestone for many people with this syndrome.

One of this event to raise awarness is the“Lots of socks”, which is a fun initiative that iinvites people to wear unpaired socks. Why socks? because chromosomes look like socks and people with Down’s syndrome have an extra chromosome.

Freezing winter temperatures increase the risk heart attack

The icy winter days represent a serious threat to the heart, especially for people with pre-existing conditions. In addition to the cold, which can increase the risk of heart attack by 34%, the wind speed, atmospheric pressure and physical activity also contribute. The increase in heart beats and blood pressure, in combination with the frost-determined vasoconstriction, can in fact favor the rupture of atherosclerotic plaques and the generation of a thrombus.

To increase the chances of developing a heart attack there are also physical activities conducted outdoors especially in the morning. Not to mention the impact of respiratory infections typical of the cold season, due to the lowering of temperatures that facilitates the invasion of viruses and other pathogens: in fact, getting sick increases the risk of having adverse cardiovascular events by 600%.

Winter weather, studies suggest, may be especially risky for your heart if you’ve already had a heart attack, have heart disease, or are older than 65. A number of silent, seasonal cardiovascular changes may explain the uptick. As temperatures drop, your blood vessels tighten and blood flow speeds up to help you stay warm. That’s why your blood pressure is often higher in colder seasons. Cholesterol levels appear to rise in midwinter, too.

Heart attack can present in a variety of ways, not all of them involving chest pain.

If you’re male, the classic chest pain is indeed the No. 1 symptom of a heart attack (though not the only one). The pain usually lasts for more than a few minutes, or recurs. It’s commonly described as feeling like an elephant is standing on your chest, but it can also feel like discomfort or pressure. Other symptoms include nausea and vomiting; upper-body pain in the arms, back, shoulders, neck, jaw, or abdomen; shortness of breath; and a feeling of fullness in the center of the chest.

If you’re female, however, a heart attack can present a little differently, says Karol Watson, co-director of the UCLA Program in Preventive Cardiology.

“Chest pressure is usually somewhere in the mix, but it may not be the most prominent symptom.”

Women may come into the doctor’s office with symptoms that don’t evoke a “classic” heart attack: overwhelming fatigue; shortness of breath; nausea; dizziness; sweating; flulike symptoms; and abdominal, jaw, or back pain.

For everyone, the symptoms can be subtle. The risk of having a heart attack but not noticing any symptoms—a phenomenon known as silent heart attack—may be much greater than scientists had previously believed.

If you suspect you’re having a heart attack, call emergency immediately.
