“Have you heard the recommendation to walk at least 10,000 steps every day to stay healthy? Sounds good, but what if you’d rather ride your bike? Which way of keeping healthy is more effective? Let’s take a closer look.

Walking takes up more time

Walking 10,000 steps would transport the average person about 8 km (5 mi). If we consider the average speed of walking, 5 km/h (3 mph), then it would take roughly 1 hour and 36 minutes to complete the daily amount of steps.” (…)

Exercise Bike Vs. Walking / By Chris Dinesen Rogers

“For an efficient, low-impact workout, you can’t go wrong with an exercise bike or walking. Both activities help you maintain a healthy weight and improve your cardiovascular health.

La Biblioteca Regional de Murcia, la prensa y la cultura

8 September 2018

La Biblioteca Regional de Murcia (@brmu) está al loro de todo lo que tenga que ver con la cultura. Esta mañana de septiembre, antes de comenzase la lluvia, compartía en la red del pájaro azul un enlace a una página de The Guardian realizado por el escritor Neil Gaiman y el ilustrador Chris Riddell. En el mini-cómic defienden la necesidad de las bibliotecas y los libros en papel.
