Two sessions: We know that exercise is good for us - but now the types of movement matter too! Can you believe that walking down the stairs is better than walking up. When descending, front thigh and hip muscles are lengthened to stop the body moving forward, in which you perform a typical 'eccentric exercise'. Prof Ken Nosaka of ECU's School of Medical & Health Sciences is leading the research into eccentric exercise and has developed a home-based eccentric exercise program. They're less challenging metabolically but require more brain-power, so they could help ward off dementia. Hear about their effects in Session 1, and try more eccentric exercises in Session 2.

America's first Inaugural Poet was Robert Frost, an older white man, and the latest was the young black woman poet Amanda Gorman. Frost's poem 'The Gift Outright' was read at the inauguration of John F. Kennedy in 1961, and Amanda read for Joe Biden's just recently. While Frost's poem reflects on England's colonisation of America and its fight for independence, Gorman's 'The Hill We Climb' exhorts unity and a sense of personal and communal responsibility. To her, poetry is art, instrument and weapon combined. Let's explore the poets' different responses to times of turmoil and change.
