examining the impact of residential segregation on health has overlooked the complexity of residential segregation and focused only on limited perspectives, such as dissimilarity and isolation indices. 5 Although some work has provided conceptual justifications for selecting certain segregation indices

), Twitter has been recognized as one social media platform that can help PE teachers engage in learning that is continuous, on-demand, and personalized to their needs ( Carpenter & Krutka, 2014 ). The development of networks through Twitter may also reduce marginality and isolation as teachers connect with

marginalization is the fact that many physical education teachers’ feel as though they are physically and intellectually isolated from their peers ( Curtner-Smith, 2001 ; Stroot & Ko, 2006 ). While all teachers spend most of their days interacting with children and may feel some degree of isolation ( Lortie

Social isolation is a considerable problem confronting the health of older adults. Socially isolated older adults, for example are at a greater risk of poor mental and physical health and are more likely to experience cardiovascular disease, cognitive deterioration, depression and mortality than

In a clinical commentary, Kolber et al 4 advocated for this technique, however

Loneliness and social isolation (SI), seen as distinct concepts, have been associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality ( Elovainio et al., 2017 ; Holt-Lunstad, Smith, Baker, Harris, & Stephenson, 2015 ; Shankar, McMunn, Demakakos, Hamer, & Steptoe, 2017 ; Valtorta, Kanaan, Gilbody

determinants of mortality showed that the effects of social isolation were comparable with those of smoking and even exceed other well-known risk factors for mortality ( Holt-Lunstad, Smith, & Layton, 2010 ). Physical activity might be one factor that mediates the relationship between social isolation and

A treadmill with vibration isolation and stabilization designed for the International Space Station (ISS) was evaluated during Shuttle mission STS-81. Three crew members ran and walked on the device, which floats freely in zero gravity. For the majority of the more than 2 hours of locomotion studied, the treadmill showed peak to peak Linear and angular displacements of less than 2.5 cm and 2.5°, respectively. Vibration transmitted to the vehicle was within the microgravity allocation limits that are defined for the ISS. Refinements to the treadmill and harness system are discussed. This approach to treadmill design offers the possibility of generating 1G-like loads on the lower extremities while preserving the microgravity environment of the ISS for structural safety and vibration free experimental conditions.
