The winter solstice — and the shortest day of the year — will soon be upon us (Dec. 21), and not everyone is feeling the holiday spirit.

Cada martes y jueves en la tarde, llevo a mis hijos pequeños a su clase de karate en un dojo o estudio que también recibe a estudiantes de yoga.

Nintendo has just revealed that it's ending production of the original  Nintendo Wii in Japan, which means that seven-year-old gaming system's days in the United States might be numbered as well.

"Yoga is for girls, yoga is for hippies," is what a group of older male veterans -- and stroke survivors -- told researchers who wanted to see if doing some basic yoga movements would help improve the veterans' balance.
