    How ballerinas defy the corporeal in a quest for the ethereal

    https://aeon.co/ideas/how-ballerinas...0ad14-69418129

    Early on, Balanchine sought the help of the Italian shoemaker Salvatore Capezio to make what would be the first major revamp of pointe shoes. Early pointe shoes boxes were made of heavy layers of fabric and glue, with shanks of leather and cork. Dancers stuffed lambswool or cotton padding inside under the tips of their toes. Balanchine thought these shoes too hard and heavy. His style demanded a softer, sleeker shoe. So Capezio crafted one that harkened back to the lighter Romantic-era shoes, one that required dancers to be stronger in order to use them.

    These modern shoes, together with new technical demands, saw ballet dancers become true athletes: training for hours and hours a day, pushing and contorting their bodies to perform and perfect these predetermined shapes and movements codified in France hundreds of years earlier. For these performers, great effort is exerted to appear effortless.

        Fishing among worst jobs for health

        https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0530122034.htm

        University of Exeter researchers studied census data and found 2.8% of fishermen and women reported "bad" or "very bad" health, and 10.3% said their activities were limited "a lot" or "a little" by long-term illness.

        When adjusted to take account of other factors like age, health outcomes among fishers were statistically only better than workers in two other industries -- coal mining and a small number of people who engage in "subsistence" activities.

        The researchers say their findings demonstrate the need for specific occupational health services to support UK fishing communities.

        "Poor health outcomes among fishers extend beyond the risk of fatal accidents," said Dr Rachel Turner, of the Environment and Sustainability Institute on the University of Exeter's Penryn Campus in Cornwall.

        "We found evidence of poorer general health and higher rates of illnesses or disabilities that can impede everyday life.
