Former Long Island firefighter Sarah Apgar develops firehose fitness tool Fitfighter, wins big on ‘Shark Tank’

PORT WASHINGTON, Long Island (WABC) — A former volunteer firefighter from Long Island just won big on ABC’s “Shark Tank” for her new fitness device, which was inspired by her time as a firefighter.

Sarah Apgar, of Port Washington, is the creator of Fitfighter and the Steel Hose.

When Apgar joined the Halesite Volunteer Fire Department in 2012, she noticed the firehouse didn’t have a structured strength training program. Apgar served as a platoon commander in Iraq with the U.S. Army, so she was familiar with regimented strength and weight training programs.

She began using firehoses around the firehouse to train her colleagues.

Throughout the next few years, Apgar began developing a fitness device based upon the firehose. She used real firehose material and filled it with recycled steel shot. She called it the Steel Hose.

The longer the hose, the heavier it is. They range in weight from 5 pounds to 50 pounds.

Local gym owners and trainers started to hear about the product.

“It started to sort of snowball and we sort of thought, wow, I think we’ve got a really special valuable tool here that has applications far reaching beyond where we started for firefighters,” she said.

In 2019, Apgar, a mother of two young girls, sold $45,000 worth of the product.

When COVID struck last spring, Apgar developed an online training platform for the Steel Hose.

In April and May, she did $40,000 in sales.

Around that time, Apgar received a phone call from producers of “Shark Tank.” They were intrigued with the product and with Apgar’s story. They invited her to appear on the show.

“It’s the dream come true, pinch-yourself-story that people describe,” she said.

The episode was filmed in August and aired November 13.

During the episode, guest Shark Daniel Lubetzky, the creator of KIND bars, bit on Apgar’s offer of $250,000 for a 15 percent stake in Fitfighter.

He offered $250,000 for a 25 percent stake.

Apgar accepted.

Since then, sales have skyrocketed for the Steel Hose and thousands of people purchased memberships to FitFighter’s online training platform. Apgar has 10 trainers. She also leads virtual classes out of her warehouse in Port Washington.

Apgar said she is on a mission to change the way people think about strength training and make them aware of the benefits it can have on people’s physical and mental health.

“I just want people to start moving and moving with weight and learning the principals of strength training,” she said.

Apgar still markets the Steel Hose to fire departments.

She said the FDNY Fire Academy has been using them for the past five years.

“I’m really proud of that. It’s very really special me,” she said.

Apgar said the majority of the production of the Steel Hose will be moving to South Carolina, but some will stay in Port Washington.

Giving Voice: New dentist is making big difference at Oasis

When we temporarily closed the dental clinic in March, we understood the profound impact it would have on our patients’ oral health. Most of our patients have moderate to severe dental issues, requiring several visits to address the multiple issues that have impacted their ability to smile, eat, and sleep. Lack of fluoridated water, inability to pay for services, and years of deferred or delayed care are just some of the root causes for the dental issues our patients experience. Our patients rely on our free services to address dental issues and alleviate pain so that they can get back to their jobs and families.

We also knew that when it was safe to re-open the dental clinic, we might not have dentists who could volunteer with us, at least not immediately. Those in private practice are focused on keeping their businesses going, meaning they often work on Fridays – the day most volunteer at Oasis. Because many of our volunteer dentists are over 60 and in the high-risk category, we weren’t sure if they would return. As a result, and for the first time in our history, we hired a staff dentist for eight hours per week to provide care to our patients. This, it turns out, has been one of the best things to come out of the pandemic.

Dr. Flo Edwards started in early September and jumped quickly into action, providing almost $12,000 in free dental care during her first six weeks. She has delivered a wide array of dental services – comprehensive exams, extractions, and fillings – and our patients have been thrilled to have access to dental care again. My office is down the hall from the dental suites, and I have a front row seat to their smiles and calls of, “Thank you!” as they leave the clinic.

Being a dentist wasn’t necessarily the plan for Dr. Edwards. Growing up in Portland, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. She headed to college in Illinois where she got a degree in biology and economics, minoring in classical studies. She had the prerequisites for medical or dental school and shadowed her parents’ dentist. But, teaching had appeal, and Dr. Edwards got her teaching certification from the University of New England. She taught at Bonny Eagle High School and worked at Spurwink for a while.

Dentistry, however, was still on her mind, and Dr. Edwards applied to dental school. Howard University’s College of Dentistry was at the top of her list. As a Black girl growing up in Maine, she had grown used to standing out and assimilating to those around her. The opportunity to attend a Historically Black University was a chance to be a part of and learn in a community with other Black students. As a daughter of a veteran, Dr. Edwards also decided to apply to the Army Officer Candidate School (OCS). As fate would have it, Dr. Edwards was accepted into both OCS and dental school. Through good advice and

‘Big parties are off’ this holiday season, Ontario eyes loosening some restrictions

Newly released short-term COVID-19 forecasting shows that by Nov. 8, Canada could see between 10,285 and 10,400 deaths, and between 251,800 and 262,000 cases.

When looking at how the epidemic may evolve in Canada over the next month, the key message from Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer, is that Canadians need to limit their contacts.

“If we increase or if we even maintain our current rate of contact with others, the epidemic in Canada is forecasted to continue increasing steeply,” Dr. Tam said. “To bend the epidemic curve and reduce transmission to lower levels…we must really reduce our number of contacts as much as possible.”

She indicated that this includes limiting everyday contacts to our households, as much as possible, maintaining physical distancing, good hygiene practices and in areas where the infection rate is high, restrictions and closures may be needed for a period of time to slow the spread of the virus.

“We held our lead on COVID-19 for some time but since resuming more activities over the summer and perhaps slipping on a few of our key dance steps — consistent physical distancing, exemplary hygiene and mask wearing — some of us have lost our lead,” Dr. Tam said. “I know Canadians can dance and take back the lead again.”

“This virus will cut in anywhere and at anytime we let it. So let’s get back in the dance and take the lead.”

Canada’s COVID-19 cases remain above “peak levels” in the first wave in the spring, with an average of almost 2,800 cases reported daily in the past week. Ontario and Quebec significantly impact the national curve with over 75 per cent of all cases in Canada since the beginning of the pandemic.

“The growth in Quebec case counts has appeared to gradually stabilize but still averaging around 1,000 cases daily during recent weeks,” Dr. Tam highlighted. “At the same time, over the past two weeks, British Columbia, the Prairie provinces and Ontario have all marked their highest daily case counts since the beginning of the pandemic.”

Public Health Agency of Canada
Public Health Agency of Canada

As of Oct. 8, 19 health regions reported more than 50 cases per 100,000. That number had almost doubled by Oct. 27, with 34 health regions reporting more than 50 cases per 100,000.

Dr. Tam also highlighted that 26 Indigenous communities are now reporting two or more active cases.

Although COVID-19 cases have mostly been seen in Canadians between the ages of 20 to 39 recently, Canada is now seeing a “concerning rise” in incidents among people 80 years of age and older, which are particularly at risk of severe illness

Activists urge ‘Big Pharma’ to be transparent on COVID-19 vaccine costs

GENEVA (Reuters) – Activists called on pharmaceutical companies on Thursday to be transparent about the costs and terms of providing COVID-19 vaccines, saying they must be available and affordable for all.

French drugmaker Sanofi and Britain’s GlaxoSmithKline said on Wednesday they would supply 200 million doses of their COVID-19 candidate vaccine to the global COVAX vaccine facility backed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the GAVI vaccine alliance.

Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) demanded the two companies provide details around price, supply and distribution of any vaccine proven safe and effective.

“Pharmaceutical corporations Sanofi and GSK must sell their vaccines at-cost and open their books to show the public exactly how much it costs to make the vaccine,” said Kate Elder, senior vaccines policy adviser at MSF’s Access Campaign.

“There is no room for secrets during a pandemic and past experience tells us that we can’t take pharma at their word without data to back up their claims,” she said in a statement.

Sanofi and GSK could not immediately be reached for comment.

No company has shared information on research and development, clinical trials or manufacturing costs of potential COVID-19 vaccines, MSF said, adding this was vital for the public to assess prices set.

More than half of the expected volume of doses of leading candidate vaccines has been bought up by 13% of the world, mainly high-income countries, the medical charity said.

Human Rights Watch, in a separate report, said governments funding vaccines with public money should be transparent about terms and conditions attached.

The New York-based group urged states to back a proposal by India and South Africa to wave some aspects of intellectual property (IP) rules on patents to enable large-scale manufacturing and affordability.

A temporary IP waiver was debated this month in the World Trade Organization (WTO), but was opposed by the United States, European Union, Britain, Switzerland and others.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic our priority has been to ensure that all people enjoy the fruits of science … In these difficult times the best health technologies and discoveries cannot be reserved only for a few, they must be available to all,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a UNESCO event on “Open Science” on Tuesday.

“Sharing data and information that is often kept secret or protected by intellectual property could significantly advance the speed at which technologies are developed,” Tedros added.

Honor’s next cheap fitness tracker is coming soon, with a big design improvement

Honor has just teased its newest affordable fitness tracker, the Honor Band 6, and unlike previous models it looks set to arrive with an all-screen display.

The company posted a teaser naming the Honor Band 6, the anticipated follow-up to 2019’s Honor Band 5, on Chinese social media platform Weibo, along with a key piece of information about the new wearable’s design.

Apparently, the Honor Band 6 fitness tracker will be a ‘full-screen bracelet’ – that’s machine-translated from the original Chinese, but we assume it refers to the fact that the new Band will have a display that covers the entirety of the body.

Previous Honor Band models have had small screens, with physical buttons below them, as the picture above shows.

The Honor Band 6 is set to launch on November 3, and given the nature of this announcement we’d expect it to be a China-only launch initially, with a global one soon afterwards.

Not Band here

You might be aware of Honor through its parent company Huawei, and both have been subject to recent trade disputes – the biggest consequence of which is that smartphones from both companies ship without Google apps.

That doesn’t affect wearables though, as they don’t use Google apps, and we’ve found recent offerings from Honor to be very impressive. The Honor Watch ES is a great fitness tracker and smartwatch hybrid with loads of health tools, while the Honor Watch GS Pro is a feature-packed rugged smartwatch that we’re still in the process of testing.

The Honor Band line of fitness trackers are value options that give you all the core features you need (sleep tracking, step counting, exercise monitoring and so on), but in a small body and at a low price. They’re perfect for people who don’t need loads of fitness tools but want the basics to keep them going.

Hopefully the Honor Band 6 will again hit this low-cost, high-function tradition sweet spot, and we’re sure to find out soon. And when the fitness tracker gets launched globally we’ll bring you everything you need to know.

Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier hand Tottenham a big fitness boost as they return to training

Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier hand Tottenham a big fitness boost as they return to training ahead of the Europa League clash with Antwerp

  • Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier have returned to Tottenham training 
  • Both players missed the win at Burnley on Monday with minor injuries 
  • Jose Mourinho’s side play Antwerp in the Europa League on Thursday

Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier are set to return for Tottenham’s Europa League clash with Antwerp after both players trained on Wednesday. 

The pair missed Monday’s win 1-0 at Burnley with what boss Jose Mourinho called ‘little injuries’, but they have given their manage a huge fitness boost ahead of Thursday’s game.

Bergwijn missed the 6-1 victory over Manchester United before the international break but returned for the 3-3 draw with West Ham last week, only to pick up a slight knock.

Aurier started both games at right back after he was given the nod ahead of Matt Doherty, who was favoured in the opening three league matches.

But the Irishman returned to keep a clean sheet at Turf Moor in Aurier’s absence and could retain his place in the starting XI.  

Japhet Tanganga was the only absentee from training with the defender still battling a thigh problem.

Spurs won their opening Europa League group game against LASK last week with an own goal and strikes from Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min ensuring a 3-0 victory.

Mourinho opted to rest captain Harry Kane for the game and could be tempted to start summer signing Carlos Vinicius once again with his side facing Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday.

However, Antwerp have made a strong start to the Belgian season and are arguably Tottenham’s toughest opponents in Group J. They currently sit top of their domestic table with six wins in 10 games.

Low temps and high costs: Coronavirus vaccine distribution will face a “big challenge”

“CBS This Morning” explores whether America is ready for a coronavirus vaccine in a special three-part series, Road to a Vaccine. Part three airs Wednesday, October 28 on “CBS This Morning,” 7-9 a.m. on CBS. Watch part one here.


The earliest a coronavirus vaccine is expected to be ready for FDA authorization is the end of November. The CDC has already given states $200 million to prepare for distribution.

But shipping companies like DHL have a daunting task — preparing to transport a coronavirus vaccine without knowing where the vaccine will be manufactured, what the packaging will be or how cold it will need to be kept.

“There’s still a lot of things that are unknown. And we’ve been talking to the different manufacturers, who are in various phases of the clinical trials to get ready,” DHL’s CEO of Global Forwarding USA David Goldberg told CBS News senior medical correspondent Dr. Tara Narula. 

At the DHL cold-chain facility near Chicago’s O’Hare airport, vaccines are stored at various temperatures before they’re sent to doctors’ offices, pharmacies and hospitals.

“We’ve been moving the flu vaccine, the meningitis vaccine,” Goldberg said. “I think the challenge related to this vaccine is it’s, you know, a vaccine that the world needs as soon as possible, at once, which will make it very difficult in terms of logistics.”

The colder the vaccine, the more complicated the logistics. Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine candidate needs to be kept at about minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit, while Moderna’s needs to be stored at minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit.

“A lot of providers don’t have that type of storage,” said North Dakota Immunization Program Manager Molly Howell.

The ultra-cold storage requirement will make it challenging for states to get the vaccine to their residents, Howell said. 

“Once a provider receives that vaccine, it really starts the clock that the vaccine needs to be administered within five days of when it’s put in the refrigerator,” she said. 

Pfizer’s vaccine is expected to ship in containers with almost 1,000 shots, which worries Howell.  

“The minimum increment of 1,000 doses and figuring out how we can get that to the rural areas is what’s keeping me up at night,” she said. “We’re thinking about the possibility of having to repackage and redistribute that vaccine into smaller quantities.”

While states like North Dakota gear up for mass distribution, the pandemic continues to batter state budgets. The trade associations that represent health officials across the country have asked Congress for $8.4 billion to help states distribute the vaccine.

States and their health departments are “tapped out financially,” said Georgetown professor Dr. Jesse Goodman. 

“Also, in terms of their human resources, they’ve been running at 100 miles an hour to do the contact tracing to make up for a not very efficient federal response,” he said. 

Goodman said there needs to be an effective national system for distributing and monitoring the vaccine.

“Otherwise, it’s going to be chaos,” Goodman said. “We may have multiple vaccines. We may
