Avoid Winter Weight Woes

first_imgAs the weather cools down, the weight goes up for most people. And whatgoes up doesn’t alwayscome down, at least not to where it started. But that winter weight-gaincycle can be reversed oravoided, says a University of Georgiascientist.”It’s a matter of making little lifestyle changes,” said Connie Crawley,an Extension Service food,nutrition and health specialist with the UGA Collegeof Family and Consumer Sciences.”Once the weather gets cooler, sitting at home and eating hearty mealsbecomes more tempting,”Crawley said. “That’s especially true around the holidays. As a result,it’s not unusual for people togain 10-15 pounds over the winter.”The weight gain can be a normal fluctuation that goes right back downwhen you become moreactive and eat less next summer. But as people get older, they tendto hang on to at least some of that weight gain.”It’s when the weight goes up in the fall but doesn’t come all the wayback down that you wantto stop and look at the trend,” Crawley said.Winning the weight war, she said, is mostly a matter of becoming moreactive and making wiser food choices.”With most people, the activity is the most important,” she said. “Ifyou get more exercise, theimproved diet will usually follow.”More exercise doesn’t have to mean serious workouts. “It can be as simpleas getting rid of theTV remote control so you at least get up to change the channel,” Crawleysaid.”It may be taking your lunch to work so you can walk 15-20 minutes atnoon,” she said. “Evenwalking down the hall to talk to a co-worker rather than calling themon the phone or sending theme-mail can increase your activity level.”If your job keeps you in one place all day, she said, get up and walkaround a little every hour.”Walk to the water fountain but not to the vending machine,” she said.”Make it a rule not to eatat your desk. Many people become computer potatoes at work, not justcouch potatoes at home.”Crawley offers some tips for keeping the winter weight down.  When you watch TV, do something active. This can be housework,a craft or even exercise. Atleast keep your hands busy with a worthwhile project instead of a bagof chips.  Brush your teeth before you clean up after meals or parties.You’ll be less likely to snack onthe leftovers. This is a good strategy before you start cooking, too.  Take a walk after supper. In Georgia the weather is rarely badenough to prevent a walk atnight. Take along a child, a friend or your spouse. Walk in well-lightedareas, and vary your route,so you won’t become bored. If walking outside isn’t safe, look intomall walking or a treadmill.  Keep tempting foods out of the house. Eat high-calorie foodsin one-portion sizes so you willbe satisfied but won’t be tempted to overeat. Store all food out-of-sightas an extra precaution against  temptation.When you do overeat, Crawley said, don’t overcompensate by starvingyourself the next day. “Goback to your normal, healthy eating habits,” she said. “Eat three moderatemeals a day and allowtime for rebalancing your diet.”Maintaining a healthy body weight, she said, isn’t a feast-and-fastaffair.”To keep your weight down,” she said, “you have to make permanent lifestylechanges.”last_img read more

Outdoor Updates: Hiker Killed in 500-Foot Fall While Climbing Half Dome at Yosemite

first_imgRiding the Future: 3D-Printed Saddle Dare and Currituck counties were staging re-entries for residents and visitors further north on the Outer Banks, which were subject to a mandatory evacuation order ahead of the storm’s arrival. Each year, park rangers install cables along the Half Dome hiking trail to assist park goers who scale the 8,800-foot canyon and encourage hikers to follow marked paths for conservation and safety purposes. The company has partnered with the 3D-printing company Carbon, which “prints” the material into form out of a pool of liquid resin by using its trademarked Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS™) technology. 29-year-old Danielle Burnett plummeted more than 500 feet to her death after slipping off a steep trail at Yosemite National Park, authorities said. Burnett was scaling the granite cliffs of Half Dome on Thursday when she slid off the trail and fell from one of the steepest sections. She was declared dead when park rangers arrived on scene. Authorities are still investigating her death. Residents of Ocracoke Island on the North Carolina Outer Banks are Still Recovering from Hurricane Dorian. center_img Hyde County spokesman Donnie Shumate said that the assessment of damage is still underway and there is still no power or any sense of when it could be restored. About 800 people remained on the island to wait out Dorian, which made landfall Friday morning over the Outer Banks and swamped Ocracoke with floodwaters. No deaths or injuries were reported, but residents say the damage is by far the worst they’ve ever seen. Ferry access to the area was limited to authorities and supply crews on Sunday as it was still under an evacuation order and people continued work on what’s expected to be an extensive recovery effort. A staging area was set up at the fire station where people could get supplies such as food, water, and cleaning supplies. The Salvation Army and the county were serving meals along with counseling services.

New York needs to continue land bank support

first_imgA few weeks back in Schenectady, the Land Bank demolished Chubby’s, a blight on the Mont Pleasant neighborhood.This demolition will pave the way for a new county library branch.Just last week in the city of Amsterdam, three unsafe buildings that were a symbol of decay along the eastern gateway to downtown were demolished as well. Since 2012, the Capital Region Land Bank has worked to eliminate some of the worst examples of blight to help revitalize the neighborhoods we serve. We still have much work ahead of us. There are now 23 land banks throughout New York strengthening communities, revitalizing neighborhoods, supporting local economic development, creating more affordable housing, and improving the environment. To date, land banks have not cost taxpayers a dime. Categories: Editorial, OpinionEarlier this week, the Daily Gazette wrote about a long-vacant property in the Eastern Avenue neighborhood that the Capital Region Land Bank helped stabilize for a new life as an Italian bistro. All funding has been provided through the office of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who successfully won lawsuits and obtained settlements against financial institutions during the housing crisis.This funding was then deployed via a competitive process across the state to fight blight and help energize neighborhoods.This funding will run out at the end of 2018.   Other states have found ways to help their land banks continue to fight blight.Land banks across New York need ongoing support to address the vacant and abandoned property problem in our state.Plenty of work needs to be done to reverse decades of decline, restore communities, combat blight and improve neighborhoods.   Gov. Andrew Cuomo and our state legislators have all embraced the need to revitalize urban centers in upstate New York.center_img Land banks should be part of the answer in concert with other effective state policies and programs designed to support smart-growth cities.   Living next to a vacant or abandoned property — dealing with squatters, rodents and increased risk of fires — is emotionally draining and often results in surrounding homeowners delaying investments in their homes and neighborhoods. We have seen how positive land bank projects can be in Schenectady and Amsterdam.Neighbors greet us and often decide to make upgrades to their properties in concert with nearby land bank upgrades. This change in attitude is what has driven our progress. With the continued support of New York state we can continue to move forward.  Richard Ruzzo is the Chairman of the Capital Region Land Bank.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

Keane own goal gives Spurs win over Everton

first_imgAn own goal by Michael Keane proved the difference as Tottenham Hotspur beat visitors Everton 1-0 in a dour clash on Monday to move up to eighth in the standings and hand manager Jose Mourinho a 200th Premier League win.Defeat would have dropped Spurs below the visitors into the bottom half of the table but they won fairly comfortably to stretch their unbeaten league run versus Everton to 15 games. Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso thought he had scored his first Premier League goal for Tottenham in the 23rd minute, but his shot on the turn took a decisive deflection off Keane to leave keeper Jordan Pickford with no chance.Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris was hardly tested although he was involved in the night’s flashpoint, having a furious row with team mate Son Heung-min as the players walked off at halftime.Tottenham have 48 points from 33 games, one behind Arsenal and nine adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea.Everton’s first defeat since the resumption of the season left them 11th.Mourinho questioned his side’s desire after a lacklustre 3-1 defeat by Sheffield United last week and there was nothing wrong with their application on Monday, even if it was hardly a performance to set the pulse racing. What he could not have envisaged, however, was the sight of Lloris and Son being held apart by team mates, shortly after Everton’s Richarlison had gone close to an equaliser for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.Lloris was clearly angry at Son not tracking back in the build-up for the Richarlison chance.All was well at the end though as they hugged.“What happened between me and Sonny is part of football sometimes. There’s no problem. At the end of the game you could see we were more than happy,” the Frenchman said.It at least provided a talking point in a game that for long periods felt like a training ground game. The night’s only goal rather summed it up.Son played the ball to Kane in a congested area and when his shot rebounded across to Lo Celso the Argentine’s shot on the turn was heading wide before it hit Keane and nestled into the net.Son was twice denied by Pickford in the second half and curled a shot wide while Lloris made a couple of comfortable saves as a dreary Everton failed to muster much of a response.Reuters/NAN.RelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Tags: English Premier LeagueEvertoonMichael KeaneRESULTSTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

Chelsea clear after Newcastle win

first_img An unconvincing 2-0 win in a game in which the visitors had the better chances and dominated for much of the first half may not live long in the memory but, with title rivals Manchester City only drawing at Everton, it puts the Blues two points clear at the head of the Barclays Premier League. Petr Cech retained his place in the Chelsea goal with Thibaut Courtois nursing a hand injury and he was the busier goalkeeper as Newcastle wasted a number of chances, with Moussa Sissoko coming closest as he hit the frame of the goal, before Oscar opened the scoring close to half-time. Diego Costa doubled their advantage just before the hour-mark and that was always going to be enough to secure a vital three points for Chelsea. Mourinho has spoken about a “campaign” against his Blues, has since been charged by the Football Association and has also apologised for his comments about FA Cup referee Kevin Friend last weekend. The Portuguese was vocal from the touchline from virtually the first kick of this game but it was his own players, and not match official Roger East, who were on the receiving end of the majority of his rants. That was because Newcastle looked sharper than their title-chasing hosts but, after this defeat, they have still won just once since they shattered all hopes of an unbeaten season for Mourinho’s men with a 2-1 win at St James’ Park on December 6. The Magpies have also seen manager Alan Pardew jump ship to struggling Crystal Palace since then – with caretaker John Carver’s push for the permanent post still struggling to gather momentum despite this spirited display. The result could have been so different but the visitors, without goalscorer Papiss Cisse due to African Nations Cup duty, could not make Chelsea pay for a sluggish start with a tame Sissoko effort and a blocked Remy Cabella shot all they had to show after having the better of the opening 15 minutes. Cabella went much closer moments later as he capitalised on a quickly-taken free-kick to jink around a number of Chelsea defenders only to see his curling effort deflect behind of the unwitting John Terry. The home fans were becoming restless when Cech was forced to push away a firm Yoan Gouffran free-kick, with Chelsea breaking at pace only to see Costa look for a pass when a shot seemed the better option. Press Association Mourinho had been screaming at a number of his players in the opening exchanges but Oscar, one of his targets of discontent, came close as he bent an effort just wide of Tim Krul’s goal – with the returning Newcastle stopper still untested in his first game for six weeks. Cabella was the man causing problems for Chelsea and he skipped past Terry with ease on the half-hour mark before again testing Cech with a low effort before Sissoko crashed a shot off the woodwork after finding another easy path around the Chelsea skipper. But all the hard work was undone with two minutes of the first-half as the Newcastle defence switched off as Chelsea won a corner, with Willian quickly rolling the ball to Branislav Ivanovic and his square ball across goal was turned home by Oscar at the back post. There was still time for Willian to force Krul into a decent stop with a free-kick right on the edge of the penalty area as Carver disappeared down the tunnel at half-time surely pondering how his side were trailing. The interval seemed to blunt Newcastle’s attacking intent and they fell further behind as Costa netted his 15th Chelsea goal after clever touches from both Eden Hazard and Oscar. Brazilian Oscar was coming into the game more and more and his knock-down was almost swept home by Costa, but the forward could not make enough contact to truly test Krul from close-range. Costa wriggled free once again with 10 minutes remaining but his scuffed shot was cleared behind by the outstretched leg of Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini, but the game was long since won. Jose Mourinho may have again landed himself in hot water by voicing his opinions but he left it to his Chelsea players to do the talking on the pitch against Newcastle as they moved clear at the top of the table.last_img read more

Nikias visits India to open new USC offices

first_imgPresident C. L. Max Nikias led a group of USC faculty, deans and trustees to Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore this week, marking the first time a USC president has visited India with an official delegation.Networking · President C. L. Max Nikias will be in India for 10 days. USC will be opening offices in the cities of Bangalore and Mumbai. – Courtesy of USC News Nikias, who also met with the Indian prime minister Feb. 24, hopes the trip will help USC build relationships with civic, academic and corporate leaders.The trip, which began Sunday, will last 10 days, and will consist of meetings, receptions, presentations and the opening of USC offices in Bangalore and Mumbai.“Our delegation’s visit to India represents USC’s commitment to being one of the first truly global universities and having an active presence in one of the world’s most dynamic, emerging societies,” Nikias wrote in an e-mail. “We already have extensive ties to India and we feel we’re in an excellent position to strengthen and broaden those ties.”Nikias said he hopes expanding partnerships with India will be beneficial not only to USC, but also to the rest of the country.“Working with them to address various economic, medical, cultural and environmental issues can help us influence how societies around the planet can tackle such challenges in the coming years,” Nikias wrote. “And in this globalized era, engagement with India also offers a tremendous educational advantage to USC’s students, both domestic and international.”The opening of USC offices in Bangalore and Mumbai will allow for enhanced student recruiting, alumni relationship, fundraising and faculty engagement. USC also has offices in Shanghai, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Taipei and Mexico City.Arvin Varma, adviser of the Association of Indian Students, said this is a historic moment and that it shows that USC’s administration is concerned with the needs of Indian students.“It will be great for [Nikias] to actually experience Indian culture,” Varma said. “It will help him better relate with Indian student needs and what USC can do to make them more comfortable.”Aseem Monga, a freshman of Indian descent majoring in computer science, said he has seen USC’s increasing presence in India.“The major reason [Nikias] went to India is because he wants to get more Indian students to come to USC,” Monga said. “We’re seeing more USC advertisements in Indian newspapers.”last_img read more

End of road draws near for Duerst’s quartet of senior captains

first_imgAfter years of practicing and competing together, the end is finally near for Wisconsin seniors Amy Vermeulen, Marisa Brown, Katy Lindenmuth and Jessica Ring.Over the years, all four captains have had an enormous impact on their squad, both on and off the field.”It’s been pretty good being on the team with them because we are always there for each other on and off the field,” junior Allison Preiss said. “They are all pretty good leaders and lead in different ways.”On the field, the seniors have led the team in statistics for the last four years.Vermeulen was the team leader in goals during the 2001 and 2004 seasons. This year, the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, native currently leads the team with seven goals. Not to be overshadowed, Lindenmuth led the team in points and assists during the 2003 season. She is currently second on the team in goals with six.Brown led the 2003 squad in shots on goals with 23. Brown is currently second on the team in assists with six. Ring, a defender, also put up numbers on the offensive charts, leading the 2004 team with a shot percentage of 33.”They are just amazing,” goalkeeper Lynn Murray said. “I am just glad that I’ve gotten the opportunity to play on the same field as them. Watching them play, you just hope that one day you’ll have the same amount of talent as these guys do and you can love what you do as much as they do.”Not only has each captain led in statistics; each has also helped lead the younger players on the team in their respective positions.Vermeulen has had a huge impact on forward Taylor Walsh. Walsh was quick to point out how Vermeulen has influenced her game.”Amy Vermeulen, in particular, has been a really big influence on me,” the redshirt freshman said. “I know last year as a freshman, Amy was my hero, and everyone made fun of me for that. I just really admire her as a player and as a person. I think she is a great person overall. Everyone loves her. As a forward, she is the player that I would like to be.”Murray has been grateful for the defensive aid encompassed by Ring. Ring’s aggressive defensive skills have helped Murray record 12 shutouts during the last two seasons.”She is amazing to have in front of me,” Murray said. “She is going to make you feel a lot more comfortable knowing that she is going to do her job makes it a lot easier for you to do your job. And I know that having that safety net in front of me gives me a lot more confidence.”Ring has also set a prime example for sophomore Ann Eshun both academically and athletically.”She is a good leader,” Eshun said. “She is constantly bringing people together. She also works very hard. I don’t know how she does it, especially since she started law school this year, so she definitely is a role model for a lot of people on the team, being able to do this day in and day out.”In terms of work ethic, Walsh has been motivated by Brown and Lindenmuth. Both players have influenced Walsh to work harder in practice and to become a more vocal leader.”Marissa (Brown) leads by example,” Walsh explained. “Everyone looks up to her on the team because she is really skilled. We sort of look at her for all [to] work as hard as she does. Katy (Lindenmuth) also works hard and is very consistent every game and always has a good attitude. She always tries to get us pumped up before the games.”Head coach Dean Duerst was quick to point out the qualities that make these four captains extraordinary.”Physically, they have a presence on the field, and each game they play is very consistent,” Duerst said. “They have seen a lot of things happen and have been a part of a lot of great moments. All of them are very humble … and are role models for this team. All of them are playing their best soccer and they are peaking at the best time.”Probably the greatest asset that has endured for the four seniors is the bond they share as teammates and as friends.”It’s been fun. It’s been amazing. I think over the years, all four of us have gotten closer and it’s just been really fun,” Vermeulen said.”It’s been great,” Ring added along with what she will miss next year. “I think one of the things you miss the most is the people you have played with and the times that you have had on and off of the field.”Being a captain and a leader for a young team has been a difficult task for the foursome. The Badgers have also had a fairly rough season, losing seven games by one goal, with three of the losses comingin overtime. Despite the hardships, the captains have used their misfortunes to bring themselves closer together. “It’s been tough. We have a lot of freshmen — 12 newcomers on the team, and our season has been up and down,” Lindenmuth said. “At times it has been rough, but since there are four of us, it’s been easy for us to stick together and use our different strengths and weaknesses together.””I think it has also helped to have an anchor in every place,” Brown said. “We are friends on and off the field.”last_img read more

It was a great day for hockey

first_imgView Gallery (20 Photos)Brendan Smith was rarely without a smile in the postgame press conference Saturday — and with good reason.The junior defenseman scored two power play goals in the last six minutes of play to give the No. 3 Wisconsin men’s hockey team a 3-2 win over Michigan in the Camp Randall Hockey Classic. In front of a UW record crowd of 55,031, his heroics made up for a game that lacked much excitement outside of the first and last five minutes of the contest.So with the game tying and game winning goals, what would Smith tell his grandkids about the game years from now?“That we had 55,000 fans and we beat Michigan. I think that would be the first two things I’d say,” he said. “[The goals will] come later, but I think when I’m old I’ll be saying I had seven.”After a slashing penalty on UM’s Chris Summers with just less than two minutes to play, it only took 34 seconds of power play for UW’s Michael Davies to find Smith open at the top of the left circle.Smith ripped a shot past Michigan goaltender Bryan Hogan, putting Wisconsin up 3-2 with 1:22 left in the game and sending the remaining crowd into a frenzy.The play was almost a complete replica of Smith’s first goal, which tied the game at two goals apiece with 5:32 to play. Smith was able to score from about the same spot, skating into the high slot and putting away a one-timer.Davies and sophomore center Derek Stepan assisted on both goals.“They were pushing us up and we were able to go down to Davies and either had Blake back door or me coming down the slot,” Smith said. “So it was actually just up to that weak side forward to choose if he was gonna go on me or Blake. He chose Blake twice, which left me open, so I was lucky enough to have that time.”In a nod to the usual occupants of Camp Randall, Smith struck a Heisman pose after the goal.The goals were vindication for a power play unit that had gone just 2-25 since Jan. 15. UW went 2-4 Saturday.“We made an adjustment and we executed at a critical time, which says a lot about the guys on the team, because Michigan played a tremendous game,” UW head coach Mike Eaves said.Up to that point, it looked like the second-largest crowd for a collegiate outdoor hockey game would go home disappointed. Consistent stretches of possession in the offensive zone were rare for both teams and the game featured a lot of back-and-forth action that produced few results.Michigan went ahead 2-1 halfway through the third period, after UM’s Kevin Lynch fired a long wrist shot from the blue line that took UW goaltender Scott Gudmandson by surprise. The goal came at 11:03 of the period and ended a 30-minute stretch where the teams were mired in a 1-1 tie, after UM’s Scooter Vaughan’s equalizer near the end of the first frame.The Badgers actually led 1-0 just 3:04 into the first period when Craig Smith made a centering pass from the wing. The puck managed to get by defensemen and Hogan and through to Jordy Murray, who put it away.“It was kind of a flukey goal, but on that ice you take it however it comes,” Murray said. “I was just crashing the net and it popped right to me and I had a wide open net. I was ecstatic at that point, it was a great feeling.”For much of the game, the ice was a major issue, with play stopping multiple times to fix a gouge in the ice near the south goal’s crease. But the opportunity to play outside in front of all those fans made the delays worth it for the players.“I’ll tell you what, I was really nervous before the game, I felt like a freshman again out there, I had the butterflies going and everything,” senior tri-captain Blake Geoffrion said.“I think we really wanted to win it for the fans. They came out here and braved through the cold — what is it, 25 degrees out?” Gudmandson added. “It’s pretty chilly and they stayed for the whole thing and we battled through it for them and got them the ‘W.’”The Badgers’ exuberance after the game was countered by the Wolverines’ somberness. Michigan’s two penalties allowed Wisconsin to come back and win the game and a late goaltender interference penalty called on David Wohlberg essentially ended any chances UM would be able to come back and tie it.Asked about the late penalties the Wolverines took — two of which were generous calls in favor of UW — Michigan head coach Red Berenson had little to say.“Well, that’s a bad question to ask a coach after he loses a game on a penalty in the last five minutes of the game,” he said.With the win Wisconsin improved to 16-7-4 overall and earned revenge for a 3-2 loss to Michigan in November at UM’s Yost Ice Arena. The Wolverines fell to 16-13-1 and became the second Central Collegiate Hockey Association team to fall to the Badgers in an outdoor game.Wisconsin beat Ohio State 4-2 at Lambeau Field in 2006, in the program’s other outdoor contest. The Badgers finished that season as national champions, so the importance of Saturday’s win wasn’t lost on senior tri-captain Ben Street. Street is the only Badger remaining on the team that also played in the 2006 game.“This is one of those games that will really help us further on in the year,” he said. “It was a huge game, huge stage. It’s easy to get nervous and tense up at the end, and we didn’t, we came back, we stayed persistent.”last_img read more
