Buckeyes turn attention to King of the Big Ten

Junior linebacker Curtis Grant looks on from the sideline during a game against Florida A&M Sept. 21 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 76-0.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe Ohio State Buckeyes enter Big Ten season unscathed, outscoring their opponents 210-61 in the process. The No. 23-ranked Wisconsin Badgers (3-1) head to Columbus Saturday looking to avenge their 21-14 overtime loss to OSU last season.The Buckeyes are hoping to get their starting quarterback, junior Braxton Miller, back this week. Coach Urban Meyer said he is “around 90” percent back to full strength after spraining the MCL in his left knee against San Diego State week 2. Miller sat out the Buckeyes’ last two games.Meyer said he wanted to get Miller on the field against Florida A&M despite the reigning success of redshirt-senior quarterback Kenny Guiton.“I hoped all week that we would get him in there, even if it was for just a few series,” Meyer said. “But (Miller’s knee) wasn’t as stable as it could have been.”Meyer said it will be difficult to fit both quarterbacks into the offense moving forward.“I don’t know if that’s a reality,” Meyer said. “I keep thinking of a way — I just don’t know. Both (of) those players are good players.”Much like Miller, starting redshirt-senior center Corey Linsley has been working back from offseason foot surgery early in 2013. No matter the severity of an injury, Linsley said it can be tough to sit on the sideline during games.“I’m sure Braxton’s feeling a lot of the same emotions that I was feeling,” Linsley said. “It’s not so much you’re worried about yourself, you’re worried about everybody else getting better without you. You don’t want to be the weak link.”Whether he is snapping the ball to Miller or Guiton, Linsley said he is confident the team will be successful. However, having Miller in the game gives the Buckeyes an extra advantage.“You can talk about (Texas A&M quarterback and 2012 Heisman winner) Johnny Manziel all you want, there’s nobody out there quicker at the quarterback position than Braxton,” Linsley said. “He provides that type of spark and excitement.”On the opposing side of the ball, Wisconsin is having a new found success due to a change its defensive schemes.“They’re very active,” Meyer said. “They are very well-coached. They play (multiple defensive fronts)… Throughout college football you’ll see how that does cause problems like our defense (does), we do a little bit of both. It’s a much different scheme than a year ago.”OSU players have to focus on themselves if they want to win, Linsley said.“I know it sounds clichéd and corny, but we really are worried about ourselves and our game plan preparation,” Linsley said. “We’re not worried about anything else and that’s what makes us a really good team.”The Badgers rank third in the NCAA with just under 350 average rushing yards per game. The team is coming off a victory against Purdue in which Wisconsin running backs, redshirt-sophomore Melvin Gordon and senior James White, ran for 147 and 145 yards respectively. Gordon leads the country with 624 yards rushing, and is tied for second with seven touchdowns trailing OSU redshirt-senior Jordan Hall who has eight..Junior linebacker Curtis Grant said both players have a different style, but that does not change how OSU’s defense is approaching them.“One is bigger than the other, one is faster and one is more of a power back and one is more of a speedster,” Grant said. “You just got to play your gap and make some tackles.”Grant compared Gordon and White’s size and abilities to those of OSU running backs senior Carlos Hyde and Hall, and said that preparation will be the key to success.“First thing you think of about Wisconsin is a powerhouse team,” Grant said. “Big lineman and they’re going to pound the ball. They’re going to run it at least 40-50 times a game. You have to prepare for that.”Stopping the high-powered rushing offense of Wisconsin is accomplished in the trenches, according to defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell.“The game is won up front, and I don’t care what kind of game it is,” Fickell said. “It will be evident this week. Whether it’s their offensive line or our defensive line, or our offensive line or their defensive line, that’s where the game is going to be won.”Getting back to playing physical football is something Linsley is looking forward to.“The intensity has never left, whether a spread team or a power I,” Linsley said. “They type of mentality, the power and physical mentality has never left us. It’s definitely nice to get back into that going against Wisconsin.”Wisconsin enters Big Ten play having won the last three conference title games. Meyer credited their success to their physical play, calling them the “King of the Big Ten right now.”“(I) have a lot of respect for Wisconsin,” Meyer read more

Excellent first half of Tatran in Logrono wasnt enough for a win

3. HC Metalurg310261:69(-8)2 In the 3rd round of Group C in the Champions League TATRAN Presov lost to Naturhouse La Rioja 27:33 in the Spanish city of Logrono.The Slovakian champions played an excellent 1st half that they deservedly won 18:16. In this part of the game the right back of TATRAN AlexeyPeskov scored 7 goals out of 7 shots.The home team decided about their win in the first 12 minutes of the 2nd half, which TATRAN lost 1:8.In this phase the Eastern Slovakian side could not manage to beat an outstanding home goalkeeper Aguinagalde Aquizu. In the last 15 minutes of the game Naturhouse comfortably controlled their 5-6 goal lead until the end.The coach of TATRANPresovRastislav Trtik speaks about the game of two different halves: “In the 1st half we were clearly better team, even though our defence did not work the way we wanted. We were efficient from the position of backs, where Alexey Peskov dominated. We did not start the 2nd half according to our concept. In first 12 minutes of this part we managed to score only one goal. Unfortunately our tactics stopped working. We had a low shooting efficiency. We were not able to convert clear chances. This time our goalkeepers did not succeed at all.”The captain of TATRAN and left back of the Slovakian national team Radovan Pekarconfirms the words of his coach: “The match was specific from two points of view. On one side we can be satisfied with our team performance in the 1st half. On the other side we cannot tell the same about the 2nd one. It is a pity that we did not repeat our 1st half performance in the 2nd part of the encounter. In the 2nd half the home team could rely on brilliant saves of AguinagaldeAquizu, who decided the game.”The left wing of TATRAN and Czech national team Jakub Hrstka, who scored 6 goals in the game, is convinced that TATRAN could reach a better result in Logrono: “We started the game in an outstanding way. We played a high quality game in defence. We were concentrated in attack. That is why we deserved to win the 1st half. Unfortunately in the 2nd half we were weak and inefficient in attack. We were not able to convert 100% chances to score. La Rioja used that and won the game.”The centre back of TATRAN and Slovakian national team Lukas Urban claims that TATRAN deserved their credit for their performance in the 1st half: “In the first 30 minutes we played very well. We won the 1st half by 2 goals. In the court we fulfilled what we prepared to play before the game. We did not manage to keep up with Naturhouse in the beginning of the 2nd half. We lost first 12 minutes of this part 1:8, which decided the game. Now we have to focus on an Extraleague encounter in Sala and Champions League match against Elverum Handball. We want to win both games.”The line player of the Slovakian champions Leon Vuckowas also satisfied only with the first 30 minutes of the match: “The 1st half was great for us. In the 2nd half we played really badly. We missed too many easy shots on goal. We do not have a lot of time. Now we have to focus on games against Sala and Elverum Handball.”After incomplete3rd round of the ChampionsLeagueGroup Phase TATRANPresov are 4th in Group C with 2 points for 1 win and 2 losses. In the 4th round the Slovakian champions host Norwegian champions Elverum Handball.

Crisis forces Greeks to skimp on weddings funerals

first_imgFewer Greeks are walking down the aisle as their country’s deep economic crisis takes a toll on their famously lavish weddings, an age-old ritual that has become an unbearable cost for those struggling to make ends meet. Religious wedding ceremonies in bell tower chapels overflowing with flowers, meter-high candles and candy wrapped in tulle, are a deeply ingrained tradition in Greece, where the powerful Orthodox Church plays an influential role in society. But as recession slides into its sixth year, unemployment rises and poverty spreads, a church wedding is a luxury many couples can no longer afford. For 28-year-old bride Nafsika Koutrokoi, who works at a butcher shop, fulfilling her dream of marrying her fiancé, a cable technician, in church was a difficult decision that required huge sacrifices. “Things are quite tough right now,” she said after the wedding. “We cut down on many things, from invitations to the reception, on everything.” The number of Greek couples who tied the knot in church tumbled to 28,000 in 2011, two years into Europe’s debt crisis, compared to the pre-crisis level of 40,000 in 2008, according to the country’s statistic service ELSTAT. In contrast, the number of low-key civil unions skyrocketed to 26,000 in 2011 from about 8,000 a decade earlier. As Greece’s crisis deepens and successive governments are forced to impose wage cuts and tax rises in exchange for the foreign aid keeping the economy afloat, the wedding industry’s countless shops and planners are also feeling the pinch. “They want whatever is cheapest, which often is not possible because the cost of everything is rising,” said wedding shop owner Anastasia Theophanopoulou, whose family business has sold wedding supplies for decades. “There is a drastic drop.” The downturn has also had an unexpected effect on another ceremony revered by many Greeks – funerals. With more and more Greeks having trouble paying for funerals, municipal authorities in Athens have reduced the cost of burial in the capital’s cemeteries. “There was always money for the deceased, but now people are in a very bad state,” said Athens City Councillor Nikos Kokkinos, who is responsible for cemeteries. Some Greeks do not collect their dead loved ones from the hospital to avoid having to pay for the funeral. Others can no longer afford a traditional marble tombstone and so leave plots as simple dirt mounds overgrown by weeds, a cemetery official said. Funeral home director Vassilis Tranou has been forced to lower prices at his family-run business and sometimes will do a funeral – which costs at least 1,500 euros – for free. “People don’t have the money anymore or they don’t spend like they used to, and Greeks are usually people who take great care with the people they have lost,” Tranou said. “It makes your hair stand on end,” he said, recounting the story of a man who was only able to bury his mother by selling a family heirloom of four gold coins.

250 arbres abattus pour le sentier des Halles

first_img250 arbres abattus pour le sentier des HallesHier matin, 250 arbres du jardin des Halles, au centre de Paris, tombaient sous les coups des bûcherons mandatés par la mairie. Cette première étape vise à dégager le terrain pour la construction prochaine de la Canopée, un toit qui recouvrira le forum des Halles, qui sera rénové d’ici 2016 – 2017.250 arbres situés dans le jardin des Halles ont déjà été abattus. En tout 343 devraient tomber. Ce faisant, débute le chantier des Halles qui prévoit une rénovation et un remodelage complet du quartier. En effet, le centre commercial, qui s’étale sur plusieurs niveaux, est l’un des plus importants au monde et la gare RER l’une des plus fréquentées de toute l’Europe, or, cet ensemble vieillit mal.À lire aussiCes 18 arbres sont les plus extraordinaires de la planèteL’abattage qui a eu lieu vise à dégager le terrain pour la futur Canopée, le toit qui recouvrira le centre commercial rénové, ce que dénoncent les riverains et Jean-François Legaret, le maire UMP de l’arrondissement. Ils estiment que le jardin des Halles “avait juste besoin d’une réhabilitation”. Jean-François Legaret parle d’opération commando et s’indigne : “60 bûcherons sont arrivés pour abattre ces arbres, c’est déplorable, j’ai même vu des gens du quartier pleurer”, rapporte Sciences et Avenir.La mairie de Paris rappelle qu’après le chantier, 513 arbres seront replantés soit 43 de plus qu’avant les travaux. Par ailleurs, elle explique que les arbres, implantés sur des dalles, se développaient avec difficulté. Quant aux arbres abattus, ils seront recyclés par des associations d’artistes.Le 17 février 2011 à 17:28 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img

Découverte de nouveaux gènes impliqués dans la leucémie

first_imgDécouverte de nouveaux gènes impliqués dans la leucémieDes scientifiques anglais sont parvenus à identifier trois nouveaux types de mutations qui seraient impliqués dans l’apparition de leucémie myéloïde aigüe.C’est un nouvel espoir dans la lutte contre cette forme de cancer. Des scientifiques du Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute ont découvert trois différents gènes dont les mutations pourraient conduire au développement de leucémie myéloïde aigüe. Publiés dans la revue Nature Genetics, ces travaux ouvrent de nouvelles voies quant à la mise au point de traitements efficaces et davantage ciblés.À lire aussiAmygdalite : chronique, caséeuse, cryptique, de quoi s’agit-il ?Affectant les globules blancs, ce type de cancer se caractérise par une production de cellules immatures au niveau de la moelle osseuse qui provoque un déséquilibre dans la composition du sang. Incorrectement développés, les globules blancs sont incapables de combattre les infections et les globules rouges ne suffisent pas à transporter l’oxygène dans tout l’organisme. Sans traitement, la maladie peut être fatale en quelques semaines. Au cours de leurs recherches, les scientifiques se sont donc intéressés aux étapes du développement de cette forme de leucémie et aux différents facteurs qui pouvaient intervenir. Pour cela, ils ont observé chez des souris les conséquences de différentes mutations sur le risque de développer une leucémie myéloïde aigüe. Ils sont ainsi parvenus à identifier trois gènes distincts parmi lesquels, un affecte la croissance et la division des cellules, et un second modifie l’environnement cellulaire. “Nous avons découvert les étapes critiques qui interviennent lorsque le cancer se développe. Identifier les étapes biologiques en cours signifie que nous pouvons rechercher de nouveaux traitements capables d’inverser le processus”, a expliqué à la BBC le Dr George Vassiliou, consultant hématologiste à l’Institut. Si développer de nouveaux médicaments pourrait “prendre des décennies”, il a ainsi indiqué qu’il serait possible d’utiliser des molécules déjà connues mais “d’une manière plus ciblée”.Le 28 mars 2011 à 19:40 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img

GEEK PICK OF THE DAY Star Wars R2D2 French Press Coffee Maker

first_img I like coffee. I’m drinking some right now! While nothing can beat a smooth espresso drink pulled from a commercial-grade Nuova or La Povoni, not everyone has thousands of dollars and several square meters of counter space. I know I don’t, which is why I keep cone filters and french presses around for when I want coffee without going out. And which is also why ThinkGeek offers this Star Wars R2D2 French press coffee maker!This makes a lot of sense. I mean, from a Star Wars branding perspective. R2D2 is a beloved canister-shaped robot on two big stompy feed. French presses are big cylinders. There you go! Just take a French press, paint R2D2’s contours over it, clue on two big stomp feet, and give him a silver-and-blue dome on the top. Or spend $40 (currently on sale for $25) and let ThinkGeek do all the work.This is a nice French press, in that it’s a functional French press. Like with Mellita or Chemex coffee makers, there is only so much you can do to make a French press particularly nice. Make sure the container is a solid glass cylinder, perhaps with a prominent and functional spout, attach a handle to it using some metal bands (plastic and glue alone don’t work so well with a container that regularly gets very hot), and ensure that the press mechanism has a solid and secure piston, a fine metal mesh, and a spring strainer around the edge. Boom, you have a French press, and with the droid art on it, it’s an R2D2 French press.I have one minor complaint about the design, and it’s R2D2’s dome. A smaller circle on the top of the dome is connected to the piston, and there isn’t really a way to lift that smaller part out of the dome without pulling the entire dome up an inch and pressing it back down, so the top part stays up. It’s a really tiny detail, and it could have been fixed with a small tab or something, and it doesn’t actually affect how well the coffee maker works. It’s just a little annoyance.Look, if you like Star Wars and you like coffee, this is a no-brainer. It’s a $25 (currently; MSRP $40) 32-ounce French press, which already is pretty reasonable without the R2D2 accouterments. Add the droid art and legs and dome, and you have a pretty nice kitchen counter or cabinet item for any fan of Artoo.

Vice Suspends Two Top Execs After Sexual Misconduct Report

first_img Share Photo via Vice.comVice has suspended two top executives after a New York Times report on sexual misconduct at the digital media company.Vice Media put its president, Andrew Creighton, and chief digital officer Mike Germano on leave as it investigates allegations against them, according to a company memo sent to employees Tuesday. A Vice spokesman declined to comment.The Times had reported in late December that it found four settlements involving allegations of sexual harassment or defamation against Vice employees, including Creighton. The newspaper talked with more than two dozen women who say they experienced or witnessed sexual misconduct, including groping and forced kisses.Vice Media co-founders Shane Smith and Suroosh Alvi have apologized for the “boy’s club” culture .Vice has grown from a Canadian magazine to a dominant online video company, expanding into TV around the world.The memo, from Vice’s chief operating officer and CFO Sarah Broderick, said that Creighton and Germano were the only two people named in the Times story with allegations against them who were still employed at Vice.The Times reported that Vice paid a former female employee a $135,000 settlement in 2016 after she said she was fired when she rejected Creighton’s advances. The Vice memo says her claims were found to lack merit at the time after a review by law firm, but a special committee of its board is looking at the matter now. It will make a recommendation on what to do before a Jan. 11 board meeting.As for Germano, the memo says Vice’s human-resources department and an external investigator are looking into the allegations. One woman told the Times that he had told her he didn’t want to hire her because he wanted to have sex with her. Another woman said he pulled her on to his lap at a work event at a bar.The Associated Press was not immediately able to reach Germano and Creighton for comment.Vice’s memo also laid out how the company is trying to change its culture. It said the company will require mandatory sexual harassment training for all employees starting later this month and that the company was “committed” to having half of employees be female “at every level across the organization” by 2020. Broderick said “pay parity” would come by the end of this year.The reports of sexual misconduct at Vice are part of a wave of allegations of bad behavior in media, entertainment and other industries, as well as politics, that have come in the aftermath of articles detailing Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged rape and harassment this fall.last_img

Legion Dives Into Someone Elses Mind for a Change

first_imgStay on target Don’t Hold Your Breath For Noah Hawley’s ‘Doctor Doom&…How ‘Legion’ Uses Superpowers to Explore Mental Illness Legion has done a fantastic job of putting us inside the head (sometimes literally) of David Haller. It’s used experimental filming techniques to give us some idea of what it’s like to perceive the world how he does. It hasn’t given us the same understanding of its other characters. Until last night. This show has no problem disorienting us right away. We start in a snowy field, shot in the widescreen usually reserved for the journeys inside peoples’ minds. Inside an Igloo, we see Syd.As she crawls out the opening, we year some screams and commotion, and it becomes very clear what we’re watching. This is Syd’s birth. We get to see her entire childhood, in an oddly peaceful opening for this show. Last season spent so much time in David’s life, we never got to see what her childhood was like. As you can imagine, given her powers, it was very lonely. Especially as a teenager, when she sees a couple kissing in a museum and wishes she could do that with someone. Her need for contact is so great, she resorts to wearing the coats of her parent’s guests during a party.This all leads to her rebellious teen phase, where she takes off her gloves and goes dancing in a mosh pit, freely touching whoever bumps into her, presumably switching bodies each time. That apparently doesn’t do great things for her mental health, and the next thing we know, she’s strapped to a bed in a hospital. In her mind, as an adult, she returns to the museum and stares at her favorite painting. This is the maze Syd is trapped in. As David says when he finds her, this is her core desire. But he gets it wrong. She doesn’t want to be part of a world she doesn’t have to touch. David has to watch her life play out again, and pay better attention this time.Dan Stevens as David Haller, Amber Midthunder as Kerry Loudermilk, Rachel Keller as Syd Barrett. (CR: Suzanne Tenner/FX)The last episode saw David being a mental superhero. This week, that’s not so much the case. It was easy for him to be the hero to Melanie and Ptonomy. Syd is much more complicated. That’s what attracted David to her in the first place, but right now, it’s making it harder for him to figure out the exact nature of her maze. He watches her entire life multiple times, focusing on a different aspect of each trip. The second loop shows her troubles at school, with a group of girls making fun of her. When a boy pressures her for a kiss, she eventually relents. But only so she can switch bodies with the boy, beat the girls up and have the boy get blamed. Even as a teenager, you didn’t want to piss off Syd. Even still David gets it wrong. They arrive back at the museum, and he singles out the kissing couple. He thinks she wants what they have. He’s wrong.The next time through, he watches her experiences with self-harm. We don’t even get to hear what he thinks her maze is that time. Syd just says he’s wrong. The next time through, he examines every minor detail, finding nothing. He satisfyingly tells the girls tormenting young Syd to piss off, but Syd tells him he’s cheating. Solving the maze doesn’t count if he just asks her. He has to go through the maze again, but I’m glad he told those girls off. That “lives with her mom ’cause her dad’s in Hell” rhyme is one of the meanest things I’ve ever heard one TV character say to another.Amber Midthunder as Kerry Loudermilk, Bill Irwin as Cary Loudermilk. (CR: Suzanne Tenner/FX)So why is it so hard for David to find the answer? Thanks to a brief scene on the outside, we learn that they might not be infected with the same teeth-chattering virus. When the Monk jumped off the roof at the end of last week’s episode, the virus ended. Everyone woke up (and had to pee). David and Syd are awake, but their brainwaves are different. David’s figured it out too. They’re not in the maze. It’s another construct that Syd put together. The only question is why? And David still gets that one wrong. It’s not a test of love. She’s not showing him the dark details of her life to see if he got scared away. Good thing too, because that would have been really lame. After all the character growth we saw last season, that would be a huge step backward for both of them, and I’m glad the show not only avoided this pitfall, but pointed and laughed at it as it hopped over.Each time through, we see a little more of her life. Until finally, we see what probably landed her in the mental hospital in the first place. This scene was alluded to back in season one, and it’s real disturbing watching it play out. She switches bodies with her sleeping mother and joins her boyfriend in the shower. The way the scene plays out, it’s unclear whether she intended to have sex. That may have been the idea going in, but once the man starts read more

Kingdom Hearts Board Game Is Vital Canon

first_img After a lifetime of spin-offs and fan fiction, the Kingdom Hearts franchise sort of reached some kind of ending last month with the long-awaited release of Kingdom Hearts III. Sora and his incidental Disney and Final Fantasy friends got some kind of closure. I can’t explain how it happened, but it seems like it did happen. Millions of people bought the game so they better have gotten some kind of relief from it.But just because the dozen games in the Kingdom Hearts “trilogy” have wrapped up there are still plenty of anime Disney animation tales left to tell, and new forms in which to tell them. A Kingdom Hearts board game is now on the way, and knowing Nomura, you’ll probably have to play it to fully understand Kingdom Hearts 4.Like a lot of #brand board games this Kingdom Hearts tabletop game from The OP is actually a reskin of a previous product. Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition is based on the original Talisman, a classic role-playing game about going on magical quests. But what is Kingdom Hearts if not a new skin on classic action role-playing mechanics and the idea of going on a magical quest? It’s a simple and clean, perfect fit.AdChoices广告Kingdom Hearts’ sheer presence though will drastically change this version of the game compared to other Talisman releases. For starters, you can be Mickey Mouse in the game, which honestly already kind of makes it better than the Kingdom Hearts video games. 2-6 players team up as characters like Sora, Kairi, Riku, and Goofy to fight Heartless and drive away darkness with love in beloved locales like Neverland and Traverse City. There’s even some kind of Gummi Ship mechanic, which again has to be better here than in the video games.Unlike Kingdom Hearts III, Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition seems to be on a quick and healthy development pace. Expect to play it later this year in North America and Europe.

Exhibiting Word Sound Power

first_imgWith the exhibition beginning on 15 January, this will be  the first time that Tate Modern will make its presence felt in India.The show is earmarked as a collateral event of India Art Fair 2014 which has been jointly curated by Khoj’s resident curator Andi-Asmita Rangari and Tate’s Loren Hansi Momudu.Commenting on the exhibition, Director of Khoj Pooja Sood said, ‘We were invited by Tate in 2011 to be part of this collaboration. Different works from the exhibition engage with digital art forms such as sound and the moving image, an area that Khoj has been exploring for some time. This collaboration also points towards an interest shared by both Tate and Khoj in social  issues of migration, political expression and its articulation through voice and silence.’  Tate Modern’s curator Loren Hansi Momudu, said, ‘Word. Sound. Power. was devised to draw a relationship between speech and power and the fact that access to different languages gives access to different power processes. Hence, from a single utterance, to the pronunciation of a name and the declaration of an idea, the voice is a tool through which we assert our presence in the world.’ By bringing together a range of artists working across different creative disciplines,  this exhibition takes a moment to listen to the harmony, and dissonance, of voices rising.Some of the artistes whose works will be on display include Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Caroline Bergvall, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen and five Indian artists including Amar Kanwar and Mithu Sen.When: From 15 January till 8 February, 11 am to 7 pmWhere: Khoj Studios, S-17, Khirkee Extension, New Delhilast_img

Why arent eggs refrigerated at Costa Rican grocery stores

first_imgWalking down the refrigerated aisle of the grocery store you’ll find milk, cheese, and … wait, no eggs?Many people from the United States are used to finding their favorite breakfast protein in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. However, much of the world doesn’t refrigerate or wash their eggs, Costa Rica included. Both washed and unwashed eggs are safe to eat, as long as they are handled properly.The main concern with proper handling of eggs has to do with avoiding salmonella, a bacteria that can cause diarrhea, vomiting, headache, fever and abdominal cramps. In some extreme cases, infected people can die from salmonella.The United States is one of the few countries that washes and refrigerates its eggs to deal with salmonella. Eggs come out of the chicken with their own protective coating, but the washing process removes this first line of defense, making the shells more porous. This increased risk for salmonella passing into the eggs is why eggs that have been washed must remain refrigerated until they hit the frying pan. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), washed eggs should be kept at temperatures no higher than 45 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the supply chain.William Cardoza, Executive Director of the Chamber of Poultry and Egg Producers, told The Tico Times the main reason Costa Rica does not wash or refrigerate its eggs comes down to cost.“In Latin America and many other countries, there is no washing step because the refrigeration is expensive. In many countries the eggs are cleaned while dry, and transported at room temperature. If the eggs stay dry, they keep their natural protection against pathogens,” Cardoza said.Costa Rica requires eggs to be stored in clean, dry areas, and transported at room temperature out of extreme heat. Any eggs that are wet, broken, or, in the case of any producers who do wash their eggs, unrefrigerated for any period of time after washing, are prohibited from sale, according to Technical Regulation RTCR 397:2006.While unwashed eggs don’t need to be refrigerated before their purchase at the market, Cardoza said that consumers should refrigerate them at home. “Eggs, like any animal product, should be refrigerated to keep them fresh,” he said.The director added that people should only buy eggs from trusted sources, either from the farm or a store where they are properly packaged and dated. Eggs last 21 days before they go bad, Cardoza said.There are no figures in Costa Rica on the number of salmonella cases originating from eating infected eggs but salmonella enteritidis, the variety associated with eggs and poultry, was the most common cause of bacterial infections in 2013, said Elena Campos, coordinator for the National Center of Bacteriology, in an email to The Tico Times. Campos highlighted that homemade mayonnaise was one of the most common ways people got the infection.Hens with salmonella in their ovaries can pass the bacteria into the yolks of their eggs, even if the shell is in good condition and the eggs are properly handled, which leads to the question of whether raw eggs are safe to eat. According to both the FDA and the Costa Rican Nutrition and Health Research Institute (INCIENSA), the answer is no. INCIENSA recommended cooking eggs through and keeping all egg-based dishes refrigerated. The Institute recommends that during food preparation, cooks avoid cracking eggs on the lip of a bowl to avoid any pathogens passing from the shell into the food. Similarly, INCIENSA warned against using an egg shell to separate the whites from the yolk. Refrigerated or not, as long as fresh eggs are properly handled, cooks should rest easy.

Rise of Latino population blurs US racial lines

first_img Sponsored Stories Men’s health affects baby’s health too “The American experience has always been a story of color. In the 20th century it was a story of the black-white line. In the 21st century we are moving into a new off-white moment,” says Marcelo Suarez-Orozco, a global expert on immigration and dean of UCLA’s Graduate School of Education & Information Studies.“Numerically, the U.S. is being transformed. The question now is whether our institutions are being transformed,” he said.The shift is being driven by the modern wave of U.S. newcomers from Latin America and Asia. Their annual inflow of 650,000 people since 1965, at a rate that’s grown in recent years, surpasses the pace of the last great immigration wave a century ago. That influx, from 1820 to 1920, brought in Irish, Germans, Italians and Jews from Europe and made the gateway of Ellis Island, N.Y., an immigrant landmark, symbolizing freedom, liberty and the American dream.An equal factor is today’s aging white population, mostly baby boomers, whose coming wave of retirements will create a need for first- and second-generation immigrants to help take their place in the workforce.The numbers already demonstrate that being white is fading as a test of American-ness: Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project _More U.S. babies are now born to minorities than whites, a milestone reached last year._More than 45 percent of students in kindergarten through 12th grade are minorities. The Census Bureau projects that in five years the number of nonwhite children will surpass 50 percent._The District of Columbia, Hawaii, California, New Mexico and Texas have minority populations greater than 50 percent. By 2020, eight more states are projected to join the list: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey and New York. Latinos already outnumber whites in New Mexico; California will tip to a Latino plurality next year._By 2039, racial and ethnic minorities will make up a majority of the U.S. working-age population, helping to support a disproportionately elderly white population through Social Security and other payroll taxes. More than 1 in 4 people ages 18-64 will be Latino._The white population, now at 197.8 million, is projected to peak at 200 million in 2024, before entering a steady decline in absolute numbers. Currently 63 percent of the U.S. population, the white share is expected to drop below 50 percent by 2043, when racial and ethnic minorities will collectively become a U.S. majority. Hispanics will drive most of the minority growth, due mostly to high birth rates, jumping in share from 17 percent to 26 percent. About 35 percent of Hispanic babies are currently born into poverty, compared with 41 percent of blacks and 20 percent for whites.“How America responds now to the new challenges of racial and ethnic diversity will determine whether it becomes a more open and inclusive society in the future _ one that provides equal opportunities and justice for all,” said Daniel Lichter, a Cornell sociologist and past president of the Population Association of America.The demographic shift has spurred debate as to whether some civil-rights era programs, such as affirmative action in college admissions, should begin to focus on income level rather than race or ethnicity. The Supreme Court will rule on the issue by late June.Following a racially lopsided re-election, Obama has spoken broadly about promoting social and economic opportunity. In his State of the Union speech, he said that rebuilding the middle class is “our generation’s task.” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a rising star of a mostly white Republican party now eager to attract Latino voters, is courting supporters in both English and Spanish in part by pledging programs that would boost “social mobility.” (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Islamic State fighters battle militants in northern Syria

Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories On Tuesday, the pro-Islamic State Aamaq News Agency released a video showing fighters with the group as they captured the northern village of Umm al-Qura. The video showed the fighters marching in fields near the village, as well others shooting from what appeared to be the roof of a building.“Thank God, with His help the brothers of the Islamic caliphate advanced at several northern countryside villages,” an unidentified Islamic State fighter said in the video. “God has made it easy for us to get hold of their necks and we were able to kill 35 and what is coming is worse for them than this.”The video appeared genuine and corresponded to other Associated Press reporting of the events.Marea said the reinforcements are being sent from other parts of Aleppo province, as well as the nearby region of Idlib, where rebels recently captured wide areas from government forces, including the provincial capital.The fighting came a day after U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said authorities heard reports that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad launched airstrikes supporting the Islamic State group’s advance.“Beyond that, we have long seen that the regime avoids ISIL lines, in complete contradiction to the regime’s claims publicly to be fighting ISIL,” Harf said, using an alternate acronym for the group. “As we have long said, Bashar Assad has lost legitimacy long ago and will never be an effective counterterrorism partner, despite what he might say publicly.” BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian militants sent reinforcements to fight the Islamic State group in the northern province of Aleppo, where rival factions battled Tuesday near the Turkish border, activists said.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Abu al-Hassan Marea, who is currently in Turkey near the Syrian border, said that the battles raged on the northern edge of Aleppo province.Islamic State fighters captured four villages and a town from al-Qaida’s branch in Syria, the Nusra Front, and its allies over the past days in battles in the area.
