Newberry County, SC (WLTX) - Newberry County deputies say a man found dead Wednesday morning had been shot in the head and was dragged behind a car.Sheriff Lee Foster identified the victim as 30-year-old Anthony Hill of Winnsboro at a Wednesday afternoon news conference with State Law Enforcement Division Director Reggie Lloyd.The coroner concluded that Hill died from the gunshot wound. Earlier in the day, deputies announced they'd arrested 19-year-old Gregory Ashton Collins in connection with the killing and charged him with murder. Foster and Lloyd say they are investigating the possibility that the incident could be a hate crime. Hill is black, while Collins is white.The FBI is assisting in the investigation. Hill's body was found by a person driving down Highway 176 around 4:30 a.m. The discovery was made in an area near the town limits of the town of Pomaria, about a half-mile from Pomaria Garmany Elementary School.Evidence at the scene led investigators to Collins's trailer on Orchard Park Trail. Deputies and SLED agents surrounded his home and tried to get him to come outside. After three hours, officers used tear gas to force him from the trailer. Original Story: Standoff Ends, Suspect in CustodyThe suspect did not have any weapons on him, but deputies did say he was wearing an empty gun holster.Investigators believe Hill was killed at another location and left along Highway 176. Investigators say they are not sure of the motive behind the crime, but say Hill and Collins were acquaintances. According to Foster, the two worked at the Louis Rich plant in Newberry.Foster has said that the incident is "one of the top three most violent crime scenes he's ever seen." Foster has been in law enforcement for 35 years.

Drink More Water

You know what they say...You should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Our body needs water. Water plays a VERY IMPORTANT role in healthier you,healthier skin,and healthier hair, trust me thats a proven fact. I drink water EVERYDAY,everywhere I go i'm drinking water, as a matter of fact water is mostly all I drink, every now and then I treat myself to a fruit drinks,slushes,lemonade,orange juice,or milk.

The benefits of drinking water:
The benefits of drinking water go beyond aiding in weight loss. It is one of the most important nutrients for the body. Roughly 70-75% of your total body weight is made up of water and your blood is roughly 90% water. The body needs that H2O to stay hydrated and function properly. The benefits of drinking water include: maintaining body temperature, metabolizing body fat, helping with digestion, lubricating and cushioning organs, moving nutrients, flushing toxins from your body and helping you avoid a ton of health problems that I can’t even begin to pronounce, much less spell!

Regardless of what your weight loss goals are, everyone should drink a minimum of 64 ounces a day to reap the benefits of drinking water. If you exercise or are overweight, you should drink even more. Now this might seem insane and more like something a camel should worry about, but in a minute I'll tell you how easy it is to meet this requirement. Before we get to that, allow me to explain some of the numerous benefits of drinking water:

Digestion & Metabolism
If you're not getting enough water, these functions suffer and don't properly and this may prevent you from losing as much weight as you otherwise would if you were getting enough H2O. One of the definite benefits of drinking water are proper digestion and metabolism. Even mild dehydration can slow down metabolism and cause you to work harder to burn the same number of calories.

Loss of Body Fat
As you begin having success with your weight loss thanks in no small part to the benefits of drinking water, you’ll lose body fat. As a result, your body increases its percentage of water so the amount of water you need to drink increases each day. As you may be realizing already, the benefits of drinking water are part of a cycle. Everything runs smoother and more calories are burned when you have enough water to keep your body working properly.

Curbs Your Appetite
Drinking 64 ounces of water each day will fill you up so you don't overeat. It's the best natural appetite suppressant you'll find.

Better Workouts
Another of the more tangible benefits of drinking water is more focused and intense workouts. Only missing a few ounces of water each day can mean a 20-30% drop in physical performance! So it is also true that one of the less obvious but very real benefits of drinking water is that it will take you less time to get the body you desire when you get enough of Nature’s purifier thanks to more productive workouts!
Muscle Requires Water: Muscles are roughly 70% water. Exercising maintains and adds muscle while also burning fat. The more muscle you have, the more water your body needs.

Thirst-Hunger Response

When you are dehydrated, your body may signal you to eat when all it really needs is a cool and refreshing glass of the clear stuff. When you feel hungry, try drinking water first because you may be surprised to learn that you are not as hungry as you thought. According to a Washington University study, a few glasses of water will shut down late night hunger pangs for almost 100% of dieters. Now is that one of the coolest benefits of drinking water that you have heard yet?

Glycogen Storage
Glycogen is a form of carbohydrate stored in your muscles. It can be used as energy when you're exercising. The more fit you become, the more glycogen is stored in your muscles. Glycogen holds water so the more fit you are, the more water your body will hold and the more water you'll need.
Impaired Liver & Kidney Function: As I said earlier, one of the benefits of drinking water is a properly functioning body. Without enough water, extra amounts of glucose remain in the bloodstream until reaching the liver. The extra glucose is stored as fat. Your body takes water from inside cells in an effort to compensate for a dehydrated state, including fat cells.

The less water you have in your fat cells means less mobilization of fat for energy. One of the liver's primary functions is to turn fat into energy. The kidneys are responsible for filtering toxins, waste, water, and salt out of the bloodstream. If you are dehydrated, the kidneys cannot function properly, and the liver must work overtime to compensate. As a result, it metabolizes (burns) less fat.

Hopefully, the benefits of drinking water will motivate you to drink at least 64 ounces of water a day. As I mentioned earlier, this is easier to do than you think. The first thing I highly recommend is that you buy yourself a durable 32-ounce water bottle. Here is a strategy that has worked well for me. I fill my water bottle in the morning and drink it periodically throughout the morning and early afternoon. I then fill it again in the early afternoon and drink it for the rest of the day and early evening. Without even thinking about it, I meet my 64-ounce requirement before dinner. I’ll usually have more water after dinner for a total of about 80 ounces in a day. Since I workout regularly, I always aim for at least 80 ounces of water a day. Another advantage of using a water bottle is that you can take it everywhere you go as a reminder to "drink up!" Before long, you will notice that you are starting to notice the benefits of drinking water without really doing anything terribly difficult to attain them!

Now don’t’ be surprised if you notice that one of the benefits of drinking water seem to be a lot more trips to the bathroom and you may be thinking that that is not really a benefit at all. Don’t panic and think that you have flooded your body or something! Your body just isn’t prepared for the increase in your water intake, but it will adjust and your trips to the bathroom will return to normal. Limit the amount of water you drink every hour to no more than 16 ounces. If you drink more than that, you’ll only stimulate your body to get rid of the water. One of the very logical benefits of drinking water in moderation is that your body will not purge the excess water with excessive urination. Again, just give your body a couple of days to adjust.

One of the best benefits of drinking water up to and exceeding the 64 ounce daily requirement is that you are not thirsty throughout the day. If you do get thirsty, your body is already dehydrated and you need to drink more water to compensate. Finally, the benefits of drinking water are best experienced when you only drink pure water, not things made with water. Technically, water from fruit juices and sports drinks count, but if you get most of your water from those sources you'll be consuming more sugar and calories. Remember, we are looking for those benefits of drinking water like increased weight loss so downing a ton of fruit juice every day is hurting the cause! Plus, if most of your water comes from caffeine products like Coke or coffee, you'll need to actually drink more water to offset the water you'll lose. Caffeine is a diuretic (stimulates your body to release water). The benefits of drinking water are best achieved by drinking water alone!

Workouts=Healtier You!!!

Working out everyday, or at least 3 to 5 days out of a week, you will see healthier body,healthier skin,healthier hair,and most of all a healthy you. I workout 5 days out of week. I do pilates,yoga,hip hop abs, squats,ab workouts,I use the 'Easy Curves, and etc. I do my cardio on fridays with 'hip hop abs'. You only get one body,so take care of it. REMEMBER healthier hair and skin is just not all about the right products; you should workout too.

Yoga and Pilates

My love for yoga and pilates

I love yoga, I have been doing yoga and pilates for over 5 years now, and it has kept my body in shape and help to relieve stress from life,work,etc. Yoga and pilates is a excellent way to stay in shape and relieve stress. I workout 5 days a week, yoga and pilates are the first to my workout before I move into any other workots such as ab workout,squats,a little cardio,etc.

Yoga -History and Benefits

info found on

Increasing Flexibility – yoga has positions that act upon the various joints of the body including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised.

Increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons – likewise, the well-researched yoga positions exercise the different tendons and ligaments of the body.

Surprisingly it has been found that the body which may have been quite rigid starts experiencing a remarkable flexibility in even those parts which have not been consciously work upon. Why? It is here that the remarkable research behind yoga positions proves its mettle. Seemingly unrelated “non strenuous” yoga positions act upon certain parts of the body in an interrelated manner. When done together, they work in harmony to create a situation where flexibility is attained relatively easily.

Massaging of ALL Organs of the Body – Yoga is perhaps the only form of activity which massages all the internal glands and organs of the body in a thorough manner, including those – such as the prostate - that hardly get externally stimulated during our entire lifetime. Yoga acts in a wholesome manner on the various body parts. This stimulation and massage of the organs in turn benefits us by keeping away disease and providing a forewarning at the first possible instance of a likely onset of disease or disorder.

One of the far-reaching benefits of yoga is the uncanny sense of awareness that it develops in the practitioner of an impending health disorder or infection. This in turn enables the person to take pre-emptive corrective action

Complete Detoxification – By gently stretching muscles and joints as well as massaging the various organs, yoga ensures the optimum blood supply to various parts of the body. This helps in the flushing out of toxins from every nook and cranny as well as providing nourishment up to the last point. This leads to benefits such as delayed ageing, energy and a remarkable zest for life.

Excellent toning of the muscles – Muscles that have become flaccid, weak or slothy are stimulated repeatedly to shed excess flab and flaccidity.

Harness the power of yoga and gain the 3-fold Advantage of Fitness + Freedom from Stress + Happiness...Details

But these enormous physical benefits are just a “side effect” of this powerful practice. What yoga does is harmonize the mind with the body and this results in real quantum benefits. It is now an open secret that the will of the mind has enabled people to achieve extraordinary physical feats, which proves beyond doubtthe mind and body connection.

Yoga through meditation works remarkably to achieve this harmony and helps the mind work in sync with the body. How often do we find that we are unable to perform our activities properly and in a satisfying manner because of the confusions and conflicts in our mind weigh down heavily upon us? Moreover, stress which in reality is the #1 killer affecting all parts of our physical, endocrinal and emotional systems can be corrected through the wonderful yoga practice of meditation.

In fact yoga = meditation, because both work together in achieving the common goal of unity of mind, body and spirit – a state of eternal bliss.

The meditative practices through yoga help in achieving an emotional balance through detachment. What it means is that meditation creates conditions, where you are not affected by the happenings around you. This in turn creates a remarkable calmness and a positive outlook, which also has tremendous benefits on the physical health of the body.

These are just some of the tangible benefits that can be achieved through yoga.

Having seen this, it is educative to note why the ancient yogis performed yoga and the interdependence of yoga and meditation. The ultimate goal of the yogis was “self realization” or “enlightenment”, a concept, which perhaps is quite esoteric to you and me.

But what is interesting is that for this they had to meditate for extensive spells of time – days,weeks and much more. This required tremendous physical fitness, energy and the capacity to subsist on next to nothing. Yoga positions or asanas provided them the fullest fitness with the least metabolism or stress and meditation in turn provided them the strength and will to perform these asanas effectively – a virtuous cycle of cause and effect. This mutually symbiotic relationship helped them in their path.

Pilates -History and Benefits

info found on

What is Pilates? An innovative system of mind-body exercise evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates.

Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. It builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen.

It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion. It can even help alleviate back pain.

Professional dancers have known the benefits of Pilates for decades. Top athletes use it for strength, flexibility, and injury prevention. Hollywood celebrities and supermodels use it to maintain beautiful physiques.

A miracle? Not really. Developed from the rehabilitation techniques of Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a safe, sensible exercise system using a floor mat or equipment, that will help you look and feel your very best. No matter what your age or condition, it will work for you.

The Benefits of Pilates
A refreshing mind-body workout
Pilates gets your mind in tune with your body. By emphasizing proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment, and complete concentration on smooth, flowing movement, you become acutely aware of how your body feels, where it is in space, and how to control its movement. The quality of movement is valued over quantity of repetitions. Proper breathing is essential, and helps you execute movements with maximum power and efficiency. Last but not least, learning to breathe properly can reduce stress.

Build strength without "bulking up" - gain long, lean muscles and flexibility
Conventional workouts tend to build short, bulky muscles - the type most prone to injury. Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.

Develop a strong core - flat abdominals and a strong back
Building on the principles of Joseph Pilates, Pilates exercises develop a strong "core," or center of the body. The core consists of the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine. Control of the core is achieved by integrating the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle.

Create an evenly conditioned body and prevent sports injuries
In conventional workouts, weak muscles tend to get weaker and strong muscles tend to get stronger. The result is muscular imbalance - a primary cause of injury and chronic back pain. Pilates conditions the whole body, even the ankles and feet. No muscle group is over trained or under trained. Your entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned, helping you enjoy daily activities and sports with greater ease and less chance of injury.

Learn efficient patterns of motion
Pilates exercises train several muscle groups at once in smooth, continuous movements. By developing proper technique, you can actually re-train your body to move in safer, more efficient patterns of motion - invaluable for injury recovery, sports performance, good posture and optimal health.

Be confident and safe
No other exercise system is so gentle to your body while giving it a challenging workout. Many of the exercises are performed in reclining or sitting positions, and most are low impact and partially weight bearing. Pilates is so safe, it is used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries.

And be challenged
Pilates is also an extremely flexible exercise system. Modifications to the exercises allow for a range of difficulty ranging from beginning to advanced. Get the workout that best suits you now, and increase the intensity as your body conditioning improves.

Try it!
