DWTS star knows a thing or two about fitness

DWTS star knows a thing or two about fitness

If you watch Dancing with the Stars, you've probably noticed that Maksim Chmerkovskiy (simply "Maks" to his legion of fans) is in great shape. Part of it can be attributed to hours and hours on the dance floor, but that's only a small part of the equation. Maks is not only fit, but also amazingly strong and healthy. He takes his health seriously and that means subjecting every food, fitness, and lifestyle choice he makes to a simple litmus test: Will this help me meet my goal of living to 120...or will it detract from that goal?

"I truly believe I can make it to 120, and I want it to be an active and vibrant 120," says the 36-year-old dancer, choreographer, and television personality. "It's not just about quantity of life, but quality of life. This lifestyle is what allows me to even consider a 45-city tour at my age. Also, I want to be able to play basketball with my kids when they're teenagers and still kick their butt — I don't want to be an old dad.

Humane Society urges you to resist the urge to add 'Dory' to your aquarium

Humane Society urges you to resist the urge to add 'Dory' to your aquarium

With the popularity of Disney/Pixar's summer hit movie "Finding Dory," animal protection and conservation groups are urging consumers not to buy fish like Dory, a blue tang, or other wild-caught fish as pets for home aquariums.

While many freshwater fish can be bred in captivity, most saltwater fish offered for sale for aquariums are captured in the wild and taken primarily from coral reefs in the Philippines and Indonesia, often using cyanide that kills coral and other animals. These fish have complex needs that cannot be replicated in home aquariums, resulting in high mortality rates, according to the Humane Society of the United States.
