Burglary Prevention

Learn tips to help prevent a burglary by the MOST group. MOST is led by community prosecutors who proactively address burglary-related crimes through prosecution and prevention initiatives. They teach the concept of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, CPTED, as well as giving prevention tips for burglary and auto theft. CPTED concepts are natural surveillance: being able to see what is going on your property (trim your bushes, use your lights, etc.); territorial reinforcement: establishing boundaries (fencing and landscaping); natural access control (knowing who is on your property); maintenance and management (making needed repairs). They also talk about prevention tips and things that we have learned from actual burglars.

Tai chi

Tai chi is the most practiced form of exercise in the world. Originally developed in ancient China for self-defense, it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Referred to by the Harvard Medical School as "medication in motion," tai chi provides research supported healing and support for those with arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleeplessness, fibromyalgia, and back and spinal problems, as well as reduces stress and increases strength, mobility, balance and endurance. But don't let the gentle moves fool you; thirty minutes of tai chi burns the same amount of calories as thirty minutes of brisk walking.
