MOST READ Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college The most serious injury came Sunday when Ohio State cornerback Kendall Sheffield tore a chest muscle while heaving 225 pounds in the bench press drill. A torn pectoral typically requires surgery and a year’s recovery.More disconcerting to teams are the players who can’t use injury as an excuse. That group this year included:—Mississippi left tackle Greg Little. He labored through the on-field drills and posted poor numbers in the 40 (5.33) and vertical jump (25 inches). Those were among the worst for O-linemen and he skipped the bench press altogether.—Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary. The Owls’ 5-foot-7, 203-pound playmaker piled up 3,300 yards and 54 touchdowns the last two seasons. But his hopes of shedding concerns about the level of competition he faced took a hit with a disappointing 4.66-second 40-yard dash.—Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield. His status as one of the few standouts in a rather weak running backs class took a hit when he was clocked in the 40 in 4.78 seconds, slower than the trio of punters and kickers who ran the 40 at the combine. Among running backs, only Wisconsin’s Alec Ingold ran slower than Holyfield.ADVERTISEMENT Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

(Detroit Lions via AP)INDIANAPOLIS — Many headliners boosted their draft stock at the NFL’s annual scouting combine with a wonderful workout, a dazzling 40-yard dash, a brilliant bench press or, in Kyler Murray’s case, just standing up straight.Mississippi State edge rusher Montez Sweat and Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf were the big winners along with Murray , but others saw eyebrows raised and their value lowered after costly injuries, bad interviews or pedestrian performances.ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award No. 4 Duke holds on to beat Wake Forest Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying LATEST STORIES Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil They’ll have to do better in their pro days and private workouts ahead of the draft in late April.One of the biggest disappointments was potential first-round pick Jachai Polite, an outside linebacker from Florida who put up unimpressive numbers in the 40 (4.84 seconds) and vertical jump (32 inches) before ending his workout Sunday with a sore hamstring.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsClemson’s hulking defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence strained his left thigh running the 40 and sat out the remaining drills, disappointing scouts eager to see how the 350-pounder performed after missing the College Football Playoff because of a positive test for a performance-enhancing drug.Lawrence’s college teammate, linebacker Tre Lamar, hurt his right shoulder on the bench press, and highly touted LSU cornerback Greedy Williams didn’t compete Monday after suffering cramps.

0Shares0000Kylian MbappeLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 2 – Pep Guardiola says a move for Kylian Mbappe is not a likely scenario for Manchester City.The France and Paris Saint-Germain star has been shining in Ligue 1 again for his club this season. PSG, who face Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Wednesday, are top of their domestic league with maximum points but lost to Liverpool in their opening European fixture.As City prepare to face Hoffenheim, after losing their opener to Lyon, manager Guardiola has dismissed reports in the press of a move for the 19-year-old, involving the sale of Raheem Sterling to help finance a deal.Speaking at his press conference, the former Barcelona and Bayern boss said: “That is not going to happen. Sometimes I don’t understand where the news comes from.“Manchester City don’t have, and are not going to spend, the money that maybe Mbappe deserves, or PSG deserves.“PSG is not going to sell this kind of player to any other club in the world for the next years, I guess. So that is not going to happen.“Mbappe is not going to come here and we are not going to swap Raheem [Sterling] or another top player that we have.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

LINCOLN LUNCH TACOS: In a pinch, I went to the chain Sharky’s for a quick bite. The menu did not have a lot of $5 Lincoln options, so I ordered two original tacos for $5.18 plus tax. I cut them a little slack on the price because they include a big bag of chips with every order and have a free salsa bar. My chicken taco was juicy and had plenty of chopped onions and cilantro, but it definitely needed salsa. And there was no lime!!! Overall, it was no match for the tacos from the stand near my house. I didn’t have high hopes for the grilled veggie taco since the chicken was bland. But it was surprisingly tasty and had the slightest touch of spice. My friend who thinks ketchup is spicy would cry for milk, but the rest of us will be fine. KITCHEN COUPON: Chefs Corner has a 15 percent-off coupon through Sunday.

Dragon’s Den Sean Gallagher has hit a stumbling block in his bid to get a Presidential nominee from Donegal County Council.The RTE star and successful businessman was hoping to get a nomination from Donegal today – the birthplace of his father John.However Mr Gallagher will have to wait until September to get any formal nomination from the council. However County Secretary Eunan Sweeney told yesterday’s meeting that no nomination could be made until after the order for the presidential election is signed in September.Lord Mayor Cora Harvey told council members that three candidates – Mary David, Senator David Norris and Sean Gallagher – had written to the council seeking support.Councillor Ciaran Brogan suggested the council vote on the three nominees who had approached them.In the end Mr Gallagher managed to get the nomination after he received the backing of 13 councillors from both Fianna Fail and the Labour Party. Sinn Fein and Fine Gael decided to abstain from the vote altogether while Ms Davis received the support of one councilor, John Boyle.The council said that while it has now nominated Mr Gallagher, that is not a legal decision and is subject to change.A formal vote will now be taken in September.Mr Gallagher, who was present at the meeting, said he understood the nomination had no legal meaning but was hopeful he will get the nomination from Donegal County Council.“I am delighted and I appreciate it is an intention but I am grateful for it and I meet forward to meeting them again. “My father was from Killygordon it’s a huge honour for me that the people of Donegal are supporting me,” he said.EndsDRAGON’S DEN STAR WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMBER FOR COUNTY COUNCIL PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION was last modified: June 27th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

BY NEIL BARRETT: Some of you may be reading these articles relating to child & teen health and think “doesn’t that apply to all of us”?Well yes, in a way it does, however the importance of all this information is even more relevant to children & teens.Recent evidence relating to sustainable weight loss implies that once you reach a certain level of obesity, your body will always strive to reach that level again. Let’s put that into context. Once you reach certain body fat percentage that is considered to be outside that of a healthy normal range, willpower, motivation, planning & hard work may not be enough, your body could be sabotaging your efforts!Take this for example, if we were to take mono zygotic twin children (genetically identical) and give twin A a healthy diet & rigorous training regime for one year and we give twin B a sedentary lifestyle with poor eating habits for one year it is quite obvious that twin B will end up with a less than desirable body composition (excess body fat) and compromised health.If we then apply the healthier lifestyle to twin B in an attempt to reverse the damage we may or may not see the desired effect.Twin B will always have to work harder and eat healthier than twin A and that still might not be enough. During early development we form cells called adipose tissue, these are the cells that house fat; think of them like honeycomb & fat is the honey we fill them with.Develop too much of these (through sedentary behaviour and poor eating habits) we increase our potential of becoming obese. We are able to burn off the excess fat tissue housed in the adipose tissue, however, we are unable to get rid of adipose tissue once we develop it.This tissue secretes hormones that not only increase our suceptability to unhealthy foods but also interferes with normal fat storage and metabolism.You have these cells & tissue for life! So no matter what you try and do in adulthood, the implications of an unhealthy lifestyle in early stage development will hinder you efforts.So what to do for your teens and children now? Use the information, tables (Fig.1.) and tools enclosed to calculate what your child or teen needs to consume each day and plan around it.These are the difficult decisions that will make you less than popular with your children in the short term, but parenthood is not a popularity contest, it is a duty of care!Garden vegetables, especially greens, lean meats, fish & eggs, nuts & seeds, some fruit, a little starch, and no sugar.Protein should be lean and varied and account for about 30% (between.7g/kg body weight and 1.9g/kg of bodyweight depending on activity level) of your total calorie intake. Carbohydrates should be predominantly low-glycaemic – follow the link – and account for about 40% of your total calorie intake.Fat should be predominantly monounsaturated and account for about 30% of your total caloric load.Glycaemic Index: (http://www.health.harvard.edu/healthy-eating/glycemic_index_and_glycemic_load_for_100_foods)Fat index: http://www.helpguide.org/articles/healthy-eating/choosing-healthy-fats.htmYou must understand what a healthy eating plan is before your child can.Eliminate all the guess work, follow the simple instructions and help your family become healthy. It is easy, but time-consuming. Get a solid foundation in place and monitor the results. You don’t want your child to end up like twin B.Neil Barrett is a nutritionist and coach with Fit-Hub Letterkenny(Whether your teen is looking for a stand-alone strength and conditioning program, or additional training to supplement their sport specific training, Fit-Hub Teens is committed to helping them achieve their goals in a fun, judgement free environment surrounded by their peers & supervised by trained professionals) For more information contact Ruairi on:086 1970 325Email firstname.lastname@example.orgNEIL BARRETT: BALANCING YOUR CHILD’S NUTRITION – THE WAR ON SUGAR PART 2 was last modified: June 24th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:childrenhealthy eatinglifestyleNeil Barrettnutritionistsugarteenagerswar on sugar
The Gmail Labs team announced this afternoon a new feature called Background Send, which will…wait for it…send emails in the background of your webmail experience. If you turn the Labs setting on and select the new feature, your interface won’t hang while it sends one email before you can send the next. You can just sit there and crank out emails like you were Tweeting tweets or sending Instant Messages. Initial tests do not indicate any increase in speed of responses or any additional hours in the day to respond to emails.To be honest, I can’t tell the difference yet – but I hope I will be able to in the future. The old days of slow computing are past us now – elegant and memory managed technical (if not mental) multi-tasking is a big frontier for the future.

While Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh insisted on Monday that nobody involved in sacrilege cases would be spared, the Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP combine has decided to meet the Governor over the ‘deteriorating law and order’ situation in the State.‘Bid to divert attention’“The law would take its course in the matter of sacrilege cases,” Capt. Amarinder said while speaking to journalists at Zirakpur, adding that Akali Dal veteran Parkash Singh Badal was trying to divert the people’s attention from the findings of the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission, which had squarely blamed the previous (SAD-BJP) regime for the desecration of holy scriptures.On the proposed Congress rally in Mr. Badal’s home ground Lambi, Capt. Amarinder said he would expose the malicious intent of the Badals to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere in Punjab by exercising his party’s political right to hold a rally in any part of the State.Badal rallyNotably, Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal had also announced to hold a rally in Patiala — the home town of Capt. Amarinder — on the same day as the Congress rally in Lambi.Senior SAD leader Daljit Singh Cheema said that a high-level joint delegation led by Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal and Punjab BJP president Shwait Malik will meet Governor V.P. Singh Badnore on Tuesday to apprise him of the alleged deteriorating law and order situation in the State.‘Petty politicking’“The situation is getting worse each day and the Congress government is busy in petty politicking. Its Ministers are busy in one-upmanship, which has left them with no time to concentrate on the problems of the State,” alleged Mr. Cheema.Mr. Cheema claimed that tension have been mounting in the State in run-up to the Zila Parishad and Panchayat Samiti elections because under the pressure of Congress leaders, several officials are discriminating against the non-Congress candidates.“The polling has already been vitiated as a large number of nominations of Akali Dal candidates have been rejected without reason,” alleged Mr. Cheema.
A green card is no longer an immigrant’s insurance policy against deportation.Documented immigrants can now be deported from the United States if they break the rules of federal and state programs that offer public benefits to immigrants.New guidelines implemented by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services say that immigrants who abuse “any program related to the reception of public benefits” will be summoned to appear before an immigration court.Read it at Daily Republic Related Items
