Yes, Hulu has ESPN, along with ESPN2, ESPN College Extra, ESPN U, and ESPN News. Watching ESPN on Hulu requires at least a Basic Hulu + Live TV account, which starts at $54.99 per month and features commercials.  A Hulu + Live TV subscription also allows you to record up to 50 hours of content for later viewing — or more for additional fees — so you never have to miss a game. For a cheaper option, consider bundling your standard Hulu service with Disney+ and ESPN for only $12.99 a month.  Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. If you're subscribed to Hulu and love sports, then you'll be in TV heaven with the streaming service's ESPN channel package.

In short, if it's on ESPN, it can be enjoyed on your phone, computer, or smart TV via a Hulu + Live TV subscription. For those who aren't looking for a live TV package, the standard versions of Hulu and ESPN -- which are both Disney-owned -- can be bundled with a Disney+ subscription.  Unfortunately, without opting into any of these paid options, you won't be to get ESPN with Hulu.  If you want to add ESPN to your Hulu subscription, here's all the ways you can do it.  Check out the products mentioned in this article: Hulu + Live TV (From $54.95 per month at Hulu) Hulu monthly subscription (From $5.99 at Hulu) Apple Macbook Pro (From $1,299.00 at Apple) Acer Chromebook 15 (From $179.99 at Walmart) iPhone 11 (From $699.99 at Apple) Samsung Galaxy S10 (From $699.99 at Walmart) How to watch ESPN on Hulu + Live TV 1.

For many people, exercise and weight loss are seen as intrinsically linked. Between fitness industry messaging and the pervasive diet culture, it’s no surprise that we’ve developed a harmful connection between what we eat and how much we need to work out.According to a 2018 study reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of adults attempted to lose weight between 2013 and 2016. Almost 63% of those people chose exercise as a means to achieve that goal — along with consuming less food. The desire to lose weight begins at a startlingly young age: The National Eating Disorders Association reports that 40% to 60% of elementary school girls are concerned about their body and weight — a concern that might endure throughout life. Meanwhile, the fitness industry has long connected working out and losing weight, spreading the harmful belief that exercise is intended to reshape one’s body. Together, these messages can lead to a myriad of unhealthy behaviours, including exercise addiction or compulsive exercise.The eating disorders association notes there’s a strong link between compulsive exercise and various forms of eating disorders: Between 40% and 80% of anorexia nervosa patients are prone to excessive exercise, and an estimated 90% to 95% of college students with an eating disorder belong to a fitness facility. Recovery from any eating disorder or even just unhealthy habits can be an ongoing process, and one that often isn’t linear. But if you’ve struggled with exercise in the past, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy relationship with fitness in the future. This particular journey is one that Dani Tsukerman knows all too well. The fitness trainer and owner of Very Personal Training, a body-positive fitness centre in Brooklyn, New York, has struggled with eating disorders since childhood and now aims to help others reframe the way they view exercise and their bodies. “It’s so important to remember that working out is not a punishment,” Tsukerman told HuffPost. “It is a celebration of what your body can do. It’s an opportunity to achieve, feel strong and grow.”Carving out a new perspective can be challenging even if you’ve never dealt with an eating disorder. While there’s no universal approach, there are some concrete steps you can take to view fitness as a celebration of your body instead of a punishment. HuffPost talked with a few experts about ways to reduce anxiety surrounding food and exercise, how to seek joy in movement, and why the fitness industry needs to become more body-positive.Choose a workout you’ll truly enjoy.Restructuring your mindset should begin before your actual workout. When developing a new exercise regimen, for instance, you might want to avoid types of movement you focused on in the past. “It’s helpful to think about restructuring the environments that lend themselves to exercising compulsively,” said Jessi Haggerty, a Massachusetts-based registered dietitian, intuitive-eating counsellor and certified personal trainer. “For example, if running was your primary form of compulsive exercise, try taking a dance class or yoga class and limit running as you reintroduce exercise.” In addition to avoiding exercises that might be triggering or simply not engaging, think about what you genuinely find fun. Milwaukee-based personal trainer Chrissy King emphasises the importance of joy within movement.We spend so much time absorbing information about how our bodies are ‘supposed’ to look or what we’re ‘supposed’ to eat, and we lose touch with what we actually want and what we desire.Chrissy King, personal trainer“When it comes to movement and exercise, I encourage my clients to ask themselves, ‘What do I really like to do?’” King said. “Maybe you really love nature, so perhaps your form of movement is hiking or swimming. It’s important to question this because we spend so much time absorbing information about how our bodies are ‘supposed’ to look or what we’re ‘supposed’ to eat, and we lose touch with what we actually want and what we desire.”For folks who have struggled with an eating disorder in the past, reframing your mindset before exercise might also mean talking with a medical professional.“For individuals with a history of an eating disorder that included unhealthy exercise behaviours, it’s important to work with a treatment team who can provide recommendations and guidelines for reincorporating exercise into your life,” said Elisha Contner Wilkins, executive director of Veritas Collaborative, a national eating disorder recovery centre for children, adolescents and adults. “Know your limits and set boundaries.”Maintain a healthy mindset before, during and after your workout.To get into the right headspace prior to exercise, Tsukerman suggests beginning each workout with a mindfulness practice of deep breathing, which can help unite your body and mind. “Sit in a comfortable position on the floor and relax your neck, shoulders, hips and anywhere else you hold tension,” she said. “Breathe in for a count of five, hold for seven, and then breathe out for five. Repeat as many times as you need. Once you feel more relaxed, set an intention for your workout.”Approach each workout by checking in with your body and see how you’re feeling that day.Dani Tsukerman, fitness trainerTsukerman added that it’s helpful to know your triggers so you can be on the lookout for them during exercise.“For some people, setting any kind of goals can be triggering, so if that makes you anxious, just focus on slowing down your breathing so you can be present for your workout,” she said. “You can even keep a log to jot down what kind of workout you did and rate your feelings,” she said, adding that any such record should be about your emotions and not a workout log.Wilkins noted that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the way people exercise, leading to a heightened state of anxiety for some folks. “Changes in movement and daily activities can cause an increase in anxiety around exercise in particular, and isolation, news and social media can fuel this anxiety as well,” she said. Wilkins recommends that you implement coping strategies such as journaling, creating art, using mindfulness apps and keeping the lines of communication open with loved ones.It’s also crucial to listen to your body. Pick a workout based on your body’s needs that day, rather than what you “planned” to do or feel like you “should” do.“Approach each workout by checking in with your body and see how you’re feeling that day,” Tsukerman said. “Feeling energised and like you can conquer anything? Do some kickboxing or total body workouts. Feeling achey? Work on your flexibility and mobility. Feeling tired? Try a rebalancing yoga flow. It’s all about listening to your body and doing the workout that will make you feel fulfilled inside.”Know that it might take time to fully untangle food and exercise.This connection has been burned into our minds for years; unlearning it will likely require some work. “We need to reframe how eating and exercise are linked in our brains,” Haggerty said, noting that fitness trackers and weight loss apps make it seem as if our bodies are “like bank accounts.” The reality is quite different. “If we intend to gain strength, improve cardiovascular conditioning, and get those feel-good endorphins from exercise, we need to fuel our bodies adequately and consistently,” Haggerty said. “If we’re just exercising to ‘burn’ or ‘earn’ our food, we’re going to be left depleted, both physically and mentally. Think about it like this: We need to eat to move, not move to eat.”Think about food as a source of energy, rather than something to be “rid of” after working out.“We need to eat to exercise,” Wilkins said. “We need to provide fuel ... for the activity, just as we would provide fuel for a car.”If we’re just exercising to ‘burn’ or ‘earn’ our food, we’re going to be left depleted, both physically and mentally. Think about it like this: We need to eat to move, not move to eat.Jessi Haggerty, registered dietitianFor folks with an eating disorder history, Wilkins emphasised the importance of using recovery-focused techniques, such as journaling or talking with a friend, to cope with anxiety surrounding food and meals.Of course, food can be much more than fuel. As King put it, “Food is community. Food has cultural meaning. Food reminds us of our families.” King said that thinking of food purely as energy might take the enjoyment out of it — and it’s okay to give ourselves permission to simply enjoy food. “Food helps us survive, but it can be enjoyable too because it means so much more than that. It’s how we have experiences, it’s how we share love,” she said.The fitness industry has work to do, too. Ultimately, this isn’t something individuals must change alone. The fitness industry has continuously perpetuated the idea that exercise should lead to weight loss, when in reality, exercise is meant for all bodies.“There is still a high percentage of exercise professionals with weight bias,” Wilkins said. “Many exercise-related activities are now beginning to include body-positive affirmations as a part of the routine, but there is still a long way to go.” King agreed that the fitness industry has an important role to play in how people approach working out. “A lot of people get into fitness with the idea that the goal of moving your body is to manipulate or shrink your body,” she said. “As people in the industry, we have to start detaching those things. Because in actuality, that doesn’t have to be the goal at all.”This story is part of Don’t Sweat It, a HuffPost Life series on improving your relationship with fitness. We’re giving you a guide to the latest thinking on exercise and why we’ve been conditioned to hate it in the past.

When humans and robots cross paths, the results aren’t just frustrating—the autonomous car, say, that’s too shy to turn left—they can also be fatal.Consider last year’s Uber crash, in which the self-driving algorithms weren’t coded to yield to an unexpected human jaywalker.At the WIRED25 conference Friday, Anca Dragan, a professor who studies human-robot interaction at UC Berkeley, spoke about what it takes to avoid those kinds of problems.“It turns out that really complicates matters,” she says.The issues go beyond simply teaching robots to treat humans as obstacles to be avoided.That isn’t easy; even to each other, humans are basically black boxes.

Global payment provider Visa is in discussions with Southeast Asian ride-hailing firms Gojek and Grab to bring a pay later service in both platforms and new installment payment capabilities to reach more customers, Visa Indonesia president director Riko Abdurrahman said.Abdurrahman explained at the Indonesia Banking Expo 2019 on Wednesday that Visa’s bank partners face difficulties to grant loans to small and medium-sized enterprises, since banks have a very rigid regulation and the potential risks are big.On the other hand, Visa’s collaboration with Gojek and Grab can open a wider opportunity.“We need to push the financial inclusion faster,” Abdurrahman said.Asked on whether Visa will bring the pay later service to the ride-hailing services, he said, “Absolutely will.” However, he declined to mention when it will bring the service, adding that it is still in discussion with both parties.He mentioned that the current absorption of lending facilities through bank partners is too slow compared to fintech players and ride-hailing firms.

Objections to West Cumbria Mining's plan to open a new coal mine in the UK for the first time since forever have been dismissed by the government, so the Woodhouse Colliery project is definitely going to happen.Men will go back to digging it out, although probably with machinery and helmets and pensions now, and maybe some women even.The council gave West Cumbria Mining permission to go ahead and start the digging back in March, although protesters asked the government to call-in the plan for further analysis, given, you know, the environmental c-word being involved.That hasn't happened, though, with the final decision being handed back to local councillors; and the council giving the scheme the double thumbs-up.Primarily because of the promise of jobs – 500 of 'em, sarge – albeit ones that involve depriving workers of access to vitamin D. Protesters say Cumbria's awash with potential for renewables, though, and that this sort of thing sends the wrong message about the direction the UK is heading in as a whole, with nearby Lib Dem MP Tim Farron saying the plan is a "backwards step" in this age of burgeoning turbines.

Following a mishap during a popular Taobao seller’s livestream which drew attention to the growing popularity of video content for the purpose of advertising, China’s broadcasting watchdog issued a notice on Nov. 1 urging the country’s e-commerce platforms to tighten content controls in preparation for the massive shopping festival known as Singles Day.Why it matters: Although issued specifically for Singles Day, the notice is a signal that regulators now have e-commerce-focused livestreamed content in its sights, which many expect will restrict China’s flourishing e-commerce live-streaming businesses.Heightened government control over entertainment and gaming livestreams have forced platforms like Huya and Douyu to tighten their rules accordingly.Increased scrutiny will change how livesteamers—many of which are social media influencers referred to as key opinion leaders (KOLs)—partner with brands and present products to consumers.Content in various forms, from livestreaming to short video, is a major driver of China’s e-commerce sector.Adverts are also outright transparent about its sponsored nature.
