Still working from home? There are plenty of perks. You can wear your PJs during meetings, you have your full kitchen right there, and your commute is next to nothing. But there's one major downside: You've been moving less.
While you could try to squeeze a little more into your regular exercise routine to make up for it, it can be hard to find the time. That's where the DeskCycle comes in. This handy machine is a pint-sized version of an exercise bike — you can take it to the office or a friend's house! And, right now, you can grab the DeskCycle for just $130 (was $189) at Amazon, thanks to an on-page $40 coupon and promo code YAHOODC10 applied at checkout.
This portable bike is so, so cool. For starters, it's compact. Just slip it under your desk, and you can start pedaling immediately. It even works under desks as low as 27 inches!
The bike has a magnetic resistance mechanism for a quiet, smooth ride, so it won't interrupt you while you work. It also has eight calibrated resistance settings, allowing you to go from an easy cruise to more challenging settings.

The DeskCycle has a ton of fans, including many who swear it helped them lose weight. "Dear god the weight loss!" says a five-star reviewer who dropped 30 pounds in one month. "I have convinced multiple coworkers to buy these and now our corporate gym is selling them on campus," they said. "This is absolutely SILENT and it will literally be a deal breaker on accepting any future jobs if I can’t have this at my desk. I can’t believe the difference in how I feel."
Another called the DeskCycle "brilliant," writing, "it could make real differences in the quality of folks' lives." One happy biker even called the DeskCycle "the best thing since sliced bread," pointing out that it's quiet, only takes five minutes of setup time, and is effective. "I can do a slow, steady ride—20mph at resistance 2 or 3—or I can do a high intensity (HIIT) workout—30mph at resistance 3 or 4."
If you want to move more, but can't sacrifice time at your desk, this is a deal you don't want to miss.

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Pope Francis on Thursday urged Greek Cypriots and the breakaway Turkish Cypriots to resume talks on reunifying the Mediterranean island nation, saying threats and shows of force were only prolonging the “terrible laceration” its people have endured for nearly a half-century. A weary-looking Francis made the appeal as he arrived in the ethnically divided Cypriot capital at the start of a five-day visit that will also take him to Greece, a similarly Orthodox majority country
Christelle Ishimwe always wanted to work in a hospital emergency room, but decided last month she'd forge a new path in life. Ishimwe quit her job at The Ottawa Hospital to pursue nursing in northern Ontario full time. In clinics in northern First Nations communities, Ishimwe says she receives time to treat patients and doesn't get abused. "I'm excited, happy for the next chapter, but I really want to say how much guilt this causes, when you're literally saving your skin and leaving your friends
Many Canadian travellers have been left confused over the federal government’s new rules around COVID-19 testing, while Ottawa says they are not that complicated.

Macron did not, however, say whe
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Andre Blake shook his head at the photo that captured the Jamaican goalie carried off the pitch on the shoulders of his Philadelphia Union teammates. Blake was swooped up by the Union after stopping two penalty kicks that ushered the franchise straight into easily the biggest game in its Major League Soccer history — Sunday’s Eastern Conference final against New York City FC. Blake’s Instagram photos and stories this week were loaded with action shots and Union players mobbed
WOLVERHAMPTON, England (AP) — Divock Origi’s last-gasp goal gave Liverpool a 1-0 win at Wolverhampton on Saturday that provisionally lifted it to the top of the English Premier League. Origi collected a smart cutback from Mo Salah in injury time and swiveled before slotting in the ball, just as it looked as if Liverpool would fail to score for the first time in eight months. The visitors missed good chances in the last 30 minutes, with Diogo Jota wasting one of the best when goalkeeper Jose Sa's

MONTREAL — Quebec isn't planning to open eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine boosters to younger adults just yet, despite rising case counts, Premier François Legault said Thursday. Legault was asked whether his government intended to follow the lead of Ontario and Alberta, both of which announced they would lower the age of eligibility for third shots. The premier told a news conference in Quebec City that he's listening to the province's public health officials, who have told him boosters aren't

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House committee investigating the Capitol insurrection has interviewed about 250 people so far, its chairman said Thursday, a staggering pace over just five months as lawmakers work to compile the most comprehensive account yet of the violent attack and plan to hold public hearings next year. Members and staff have conducted the interviews in private, and most witnesses have appeared voluntarily. The committee has subpoenaed more than 40 people, and lawmakers say that only
Elections Alberta says it was improper — but not partisan — when an employee posted testy Twitter responses to concerned citizens on municipal election day. Some MLAs say the now-deleted social media posts damaged the office's credibility, and Elections Alberta should be more transparent about the consequences for the employee responsible. "This hurts the confidence in Elections Alberta," said United Conservative Party MLA Tany Yao, during an all-party legislative committee meeting Friday. Chief
