Leg pain could be a wake-up call for your cardiovascular health

Everyone gets a charley horse now and again while walking. But what if you experience a painful cramping sensation more often than normal, or even every time you walk? Claudication -the medical term for leg pain while walking -is a common symptom of peripheral artery disease (PAD), an often undetected and sometimes dangerous condition, according to the Harvard Heart Letter.

PAD occurs when fatty deposits narrow and clog arteries outside of the heart, most often in the legs. While some people have mild or no symptoms, cramping in the arms or legs that starts during physical activity and disappears after a few minutes of rest occurs in some PAD patients, according to the Mayo Clinic. Pain may also occur in the buttock, hip, thigh or calf, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Other symptoms of peripheral artery disease include:

-Muscle weakness
-Hair loss
-Smooth, shiny skin
-Skin that is cool to the touch, especially if it occurs with pain while walking that subsides after stopping
-Decreased or absent pulses in the feet
-Persistent sores in the legs or feet
-Cold or numb toes

Peripheral artery disease is often a sign of fatty deposits in other areas of the body, which can reduce blood flow to the heart and brain, according to the Mayo Clinic. Contact your physician if you’re experiencing these symptoms and over age 65; over age 50 and have a history of diabetes or smoking; or under age 50, but have diabetes and other risk factors like obesity or high blood pressure.

According to the CDC, a doctor may use a variety of tests and imaging techniques to diagnose this issue. Treatment may include aspirin or other antiplatelet medications, as well as lifestyle changes like tobacco cessation and exercise. In some cases, surgery may be necessary.
Personalized pricing

How your data determines the price that companies think you might pay...

In a highly connected world, with people routinely digitizing much of their lives, we have become accustomed to the idea of our information as a product. But do consumers know the extent to which their data is commercialized? And should we be comfortable with practices like product pricing based on our browser history or ZIP code?

According to Digital Trends, every time you visit a website, someone collects your personal data -- your location, your browser history, your device -- and often, this data is then sold to third parties, such as advertisers, marketers and other data firms. The end goal: To sell more stuff at the highest price possible.

Higher prices for some?

Fluid rate changes -- also known as dynamic pricing -- is a data-driven practice that lets companies charge consumers more based on the data that they collect. According to ProPublica, in 2015, test prep company The Princeton Review was caught charging higher prices for online users in ZIP codes with larger Asian-American communities. According to the Washington Post, the airline industry often uses data to personalize airfares for potential passengers, setting fares based on information they collect and market conditions. And online retail titan Amazon uses dynamic pricing to nudge prices up as they increase in popularity, according to Money Talks News.

Lots of questions persist about data collection practices. According to the Harvard Business Review, many of these algorithms are trade secrets -- even the companies that buy data do not necessarily know how or what data is being collected.

At least one legislature has acted on privacy concerns. In California, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) went into effect at the beginning of 2020 and requires businesses under their jurisdiction to allow users to opt out of the sale of their data.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: Those who knew him grow old; the promise lives

The people who heard Martin Luther King, Jr. speak in person, or live on the television or radio--those people have grown old.

Is time that those old people ask the young: Have you heard his speech? Have you read about Martin Luther King's dream? Did you read his Mountaintop speech?

Any of King's speeches evoke spirit and truth, but one speech shines out for its hopeful and, in retrospect, its chilling words.

That is the Mountaintop speech, given April 3, 1968, at the Church of Christ in Memphis, Tenn.

In this speech, King mused that if given any time in history, he would have chosen that moment, that very day above all others. He spoke about the great and pivotal hour for the country and the world as all confronted injustice.

Then, he remembers his brush with death years before when he was stabbed and how close he came to missing that day.

And then he proclaims that he has seen the Promised Land:

"We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop...Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land!"

The next day, on April 4, 1968, King was assassinated.

King's words, later recalled, send a shiver through hearts and minds. Those words are worth recalling even 53 years later, that one was led by God to the mountaintop and he saw the promised future of his people fulfilled.
Throw out the rule book! The best time to sell is now

Everyone knows that the spring home sales market heats up in early March and that's when all the buyers are out, right? That may not be true in 2021. Here are five reasons why:

1. Schools. With many schools still going back and forth between virtual and classroom learning, buyers have less allegiance to school as a reason to wait until spring for a move. In most schools, sports and activities have been cancelled or curtailed, further softening parental concern about changing school districts.

2. Work. More people are getting clarity on whether they will return to work in offices or continue working from home. Telecommuting remains popular, and telecommuters want homes with space for offices. This makes a cohort of buyers that are ready when you are. Suburbs and rural areas are hot right now as urban dwellers flee cities for more security, more space and a lower cost of living.

3. Not many homes on the market. For sellers, that means don't put off listing to wait for the market in spring. The market may well be ready now. Supply is low in most locales, and your property will shine with less competition in listings.

4. Home values are up. There is no better time to get a great price for your home. Lots of buyers in the market means high demand. Fewer homes on the market means low supply. That is a recipe for a high selling price!

5. Sweet buying environment, too. Buyers are now in a great position. Mortgage interest rates are historically low. Lenders want to lend. Demand for housing is high. In addition, some buyers have delayed during 2020 to wait out economic and social uncertainty. But much of that uncertainty is now resolved.
