It's because a woman who spent $60 and four (or eight) hours in the stylist's chair is not going to be eager to hit the gym and wreck her hair, and if you don't get that, well, you're probably a guy. • Surgeon General Regina Benjamin gets it. • She is a doctor whose mother was a hairstylist. She knows high-maintenance hair can be an obstacle to exercise, especially for African-American women like herself. She's performing a huge public service by calling women out on it. • "Oftentimes you get women saying, 'I can't exercise today because I don't want to sweat my hair back or get my hair wet,'" Benjamin told The New York Times. "I hate to use the word 'excuse,' but that's one of them." • Earlier this month, Benjamin served as honorary judge for a "hair fitness competition" at a trade show that drew some 60,000 stylists in Atlanta. Contestants were asked to produce exercise-friendly hairstyles for low-, moderate- and high-impact workouts. The event was co-hosted by Bronner Bros., which specializes in hair and skin care for African-Americans, and • insurance giant • UnitedHealthcare. Grand prize was $5,000. • The focus was on black women, who have a higher obesity rate than any other demographic group. Half of African-American women over age 20 are obese, compared with 36 percent of all women and 34 percent of adults overall. In a study done by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, one in three black women said concerns about their hair made them think twice about exercise………….. • Since assuming the post last year, Benjamin has lectured about fitness, tinkered with the food pyramid and urged doctors, employers and others to support and promote breastfeeding. Encouraging women to put their health before their hairstyles fits right in with that agenda. It rings true with every woman who's given up aerobics or lap swimming or biking — helmet head, anyone? — for want of an extra hour to repair her hair. • The people who don't get it tend to be the ones with receding hairlines. (Go ahead, Google Jeff Stier.) • And speaking of guys, the CDC says 32 percent of men are obese, which suggests an awful lot of them aren't spending enough time on the treadmill, either. What's their excuse?
While the distinction between published features and news is often clear, when approached conceptually there are few hard boundaries between the two. It is quite possible to write a feature in the style of a news story, for instance. Nevertheless features do tend to take a more narrative approach, perhaps using opening paragraphs as scene-setting narrative hooks instead of the delivery of the most important facts. Feature
