ANOTHER YEAR AHEAD Though bruised and stunned by last weekend’s defeat to bitter rivals Calabar, yesterday’s mood at ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys Championships giants Kingston College (KC) was a mix of bravery and belief that they will overcome, and hopefully win the title soon. Twenty-seven-time holders Calabar have won the illustrious Mortimer Geddes trophy six times consecutively, while the ‘Purples’ of North Street are seeking their first hold since 2009, despite coming very close, again. At KC yesterday, while Calabar and Edwin Allen (Girl’s Champions) celebrated, it was a regular school day, with early-morning devotion. One member of the school’s team, Class One star sprinter, Jhevaughn Matherson, was spotted being dropped off by his guardian, Stewart Jacobs. Jacobs was confident, “Our school spirit will always remain our foundation.” “As our motto states, the brave may fall, but never yield. We have one year to plan back for Champs, our athletes will go into exam mode now, then Penn Relays and CARIFTA,” an optimistic Jacobs said. Around eight KC athletes will be representing Jamaica at CARIFTA this year. Matherson, on whom KC’s Class One hopes rested, was injured in the semi-finals of the 100 metres, last Friday. He pulled out of the event via a false start, but managed to finish the 200m final. “He is in high spirits, and he will definitely be back next year, and will be doing the double next year,” outlined his guardian. The athlete will enter his final year of Class One. Jacobs is also the Kingston College parent-teacher Association (PTA) president, and stated he could no longer support coach Neil Harrison as KC coach, following this year’s defeat. “I don’t give the coach confidence; we (KC) can’t lose Champs like that. Frankly speaking, you can’t have a team with depth like this and still lose Champs,” he reasoned. Meanwhile, the institution’s dean of discipline, Ainsworth Walker, called yesterday a regular school day, noting that the athletes should be in school during the course of the day and week. Parent Joan Harper, who was present for all five days, said she was “proud of my boys, despite the fact that they didn’t win”. Fifth-form student Kevoan Daley admitted to being a little disappointed, however, noted that the loss was “better than a couple of years ago.” “I hope we will win next year,” he outlined.

The Chairman of the Joint Legislative Modernization Committee, Senator Conmany B. Wesseh, has requested the holding of a special session of the Senate, or if possible the entire Legislature to celebrate the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord (CPA) on Monday, August 18, or Tuesday, August 19, which ever date is deemed appropriate.Senator Wesseh’s request was contained in a two-page letter addressed to his colleagues dated August 12, and read before plenary yesterday during its 54th day sitting.In his letter, the River Gee lawmaker recalled that on August 18, 2003, Liberia’s political, civil society, warring factions and other leaders signed the Comprehensive Peace Accord, which he asserted ended the 14 years of civil war in the country.The process leading to the signing of the CPA held in Accra, Ghana after three months of negotiations was facilitated by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), assisted by the United Nations and the United States with former Nigerian Head of State General Abdusalami A. Abubakar as principal mediator.Considering what he described as the historical importance “of that singular event to the current peace we are enjoying,” Senator Wesseh recalled that the Government of Liberia…organized an elaborate celebration of the 10th Anniversary in a week of activities that culminated in a fascinating program held on August 18, 2012 at the Centennial Pavilion.“As elected representatives of the people of Liberia who are the net beneficiaries of the peace occasioned by the CPA, we must never, ever forget what has been achieved and the immeasurable possibilities of the future in peace.”During the program which Senator Wesseh noted could include speeches, prayers and the singing of patriotic songs, guests could also be invited from the other branches of government, the diplomatic corps, civil society, religious community and others.Senator Wesseh who throughout the civil war formed part of the hierarchy of negotiating delegations that visited every corner of the sub-region in search of lasting peace, and eventually helped found the peace accord, maintained that the celebrations need no effort of convincing.On August 18, 2003, Wesseh emphasized, Liberian leaders made a strong pledge to end the armed violence which killed about 250,000 citizens, displaced more than a million internally and externally, devastated families and communities, destroyed economy and infrastructure, and reduced Liberia to a failed state and a beggar nation.“On that day, Liberians made and began to keep a promise never to go to war with themselves anymore, but to rebuild reform and create governing institutions such as the Legislature, Executive and Judiciary that would maintain enduring peace in our country.”The leaders who signed the CPA, according Senator Wesseh, restored hope to the children and youth of Liberia that there was a future to live for, and promised to fully commit themselves to peace, social economic process, democracy, integrity and above all, to love country.“By celebrating the CPA,” Senator Wesseh noted, “we are reminding ourselves, the people we represent and those who have stood by us during our trials and tribulations that we have a promise to keep and a vow to renew.”With the overwhelming importance attached to the communication, the plenary voted to constitute five-member ad-hoc committee whose mandate is to work out a feasibility plan for the ceremony.The committee is chaired by Senator Wesseh, co-chair by Nimba County Senator Thomas Grupee, with Senators Jewel Howard-Taylor, H. Dan Morais and former peace Ambassador George Manneh Weah of Nimba, Bong, Maryland and Montserrado Counties, respectively, as members.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

BY EMMET RUSHE: Have you ever looked at a model on the cover of a magazine and thought, ‘I would love to look like that?’Maybe you have taken the 4-week workout; you know the one that the magazine said the cover model did to achieve their body? You may have even pinned it to your fridge, have been doing it religiously, and still don’t look like the photo.How about the latest ‘celebrity diet’ that all the rich and famous are doing? Maybe that is the secret to finally getting that ‘toned’ look? Unfortunately, it isn’t and neither is the workout from the magazine.Before you start to try and look like the person on the front of the magazine, you have to understand;A) What it is you are afterB) What you have to do in order to get there.So what exactly is being ‘toned’?What you are looking for when you talk about wanting to be toned, is having lower levels of body fat and having visible muscle mass. Don’t be worried about the muscle mass. You won’t end up looking bulky or manly.Thankfully this myth is starting to disperse and we are seeing more and more females starting to realise how weight training can help them achieve their goals.However, you have to be realistic with the time it will take you to achieve what you want and how you should go about it from the start, based on where you are physically, right now.The reality is, that none of the models or celebrities actually do any of the workouts that the magazine posts up. They are there simply to get us to spend our money.Most of these celebrities, male or female, have trainers who put them through fitness routines that are appropriate for their individual goals. What you may need to do is based on a few things.The chart below lays them out in a simple manner.If you are overweight and have excess body fat to lose, you will need a combination of a structured diet, resistance training and cardio training to help build muscle mass and burn fat.If you are skinny and have very little shape, you should drop the cardio altogether and focus on resistance training to build muscle and increase your calories in order to help feed the muscle and get the shape you want.If you are overweight but carry a lot of muscle, you need to start dieting down in order to reach your target weight.Diet and resistance training are the priority here, cardio should be used as necessary.For females, the toned look is usually associated with people like Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Cameron Diaz, Heidi Klum, Jillian Michaels, Miranda Kerr, Kaley Cuoco among others.These celebrities will train daily, know exactly what they are eating and make sure that they rarely mess up, such is the joys of being in the media spotlight. I’m willing to guess that the majority of you reading this may not have the luxury of having every day to dedicate to training and your nutrition may not be as regimented as the ladies listed above, and that’s ok.What you might need to do, is decide if looking like one of these cover models, or celebrities is actually what you want.The majority of my clientele is female, and from my experience, most women want to look good in their clothes, especially their jeans and that dress you really like.You don’t need to train like one of these cover models in order to achieve that.It doesn’t have to be every day.You don’t have to eat with the discipline of a monk.Your life doesn’t have to revolve around training and eating.If you want to do those things, and you have the time to do it, that’s fine too.For the majority of you, it doesn’t have to be that hard.Training 3-4 times per week with an even mix of resistance training and cardio can get you great results.The most important thing to remember is that being healthy always comes first, no matter what you goal is.From there, you can take your body goals as far as you want. Just remember to have fun along the way.Work with trainers if you need to, or bring a friend. Who knows where you could be in a year!Maybe being toned and looking like a fitness model is for you. If it isn’t, remember that that is fine and having a less strict goal might be the right choice.It could leave you feeling comfortable in your clothes and more importantly, in your own skin.#TrainSmartIf you would like any more information, you can contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/Rushe-Fitness-120518884715118/?ref=settingsEMMET RUSHE: WHY YOU DON’T LOOK TONED (AND WHY YOU MAY NOT NEED TO) was last modified: April 14th, 2016 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:emmet rushe

Motorists are asked to drive carefully this morning after fresh falls of snow overnight.Many parts of Donegal had snow this morning.Almost all roads are passable with care.Gardai have asked motorists not to take any chances. While all main roads are passable, people are being asked to take extra care on secondary roads.And with the latest chill expected to last until Wednesday, people are being advised to wrap up and to take care.The pubic is also being advised to call in to elderly neighbours.PUBLIC ADVISED TO TAKE CARE AFTER FALLS OF SNOW AND SLEET OVERNIGHT was last modified: March 2nd, 2015 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) Tags:donegalGardaisnow
Scientists use fluorescent tags to shine light on the biggest proteins in the human body.The caption of a photo in Medical Xpress is boring, but the photo itself is ready for Christmas! It’s a microphoto of the giant protein titin—largest protein in the human body—lit up in Christmas lights. Titin is essential to our muscles. The caption reads, “Remodelling of cardiomyocytes includes sarcomere assembly and growth (red and green stripes, 12 hours).” OK, now the plain English: cardiomycetes are heart cells. Sarcomeres are muscle structures containing titin. The cells come together (“remodelling”) in a programmed way to form sarcomeres, which make up our muscle fibers. But how did they get such a Christmasy picture at Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine?As twinkling lights brighten the holiday season, Max Delbrueck Center for Molecular Medicine researchers are cheered by red and green lights for an entirely different reason. Using colorful probes, a team has tracked the full lifecycle of titin, the body’s largest protein known to play a key role in muscle tissue. Observing titin from synthesis to degradation has provided novel insight into the formation of sarcomeres, the main contractile units of heart and skeletal muscle. The results were reported in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).Collage made from single cells expressing treen and red fluorescent titin proteins. Credit: Gotthardt Lab, MDCThe Christmas lights are added on for effect, just like people place lights on Christmas trees. But the structure itself, with its regular patterns looking like limbs on a Christmas fir tree, is very real. And when the lights go on, the tree itself becomes an object of beauty, just like the Christmas tree was beautiful in the forest.“Cardiomyocytes are highly specialized and cannot skip a beat,” said Michael Gotthardt, who heads MDC’s Neuromuscular and Cardiovascular Cell Biology Lab and spearheaded the research. “We can watch how titin is made and inserted into the myofilament while everything is still working. It’s beautiful to see.“The scientists at MDC were surprised to find that titin is much more dynamic than earlier believed. It’s not just an idle scaffold. It moves in a choreographed dance. Everything in the insertion is coordinated carefully so that the heart never skips a beat. Imagine trying to do heart surgery in situ on a beating heart!The red and green fluorescent lights are attached to titin proteinsHeart muscle cells appear to have a pool of soluble titin spread throughout the sarcomere, ready to replace proteins damaged in the repetitive process of muscle expansion and contraction. Overextended proteins are moved out of the cells and then degraded. All of this happens over the course of a few hours, which sounds fast, but is actually much longer than for any other sarcomeric protein.Individual sarcomeres are organized into muscle fibers.Ribosomes are ready near the site to transcribe mRNA into titin as needed. The proteins are kept in a compartment ready for assembly, then are moved into position as needed. Spent proteins are removed in an organized manner.The body has about 700 named skeletal muscles, not counting smooth muscles and cardiac muscles.As we work our muscles, many coordinated steps are taking place at the cellular level beyond our normal experience. Scientists are just peering now into the secrets that people have been relying on for every finger, arm, leg movement and heartbeat since the dawn of creation.That’s a Christmas present to delight in more than anything you could find under the tree. Many live for 60, 70, 80, 90 or 100 years with these systems operating reliably without fail. “And they run on potatoes!” Dr A. E. Wilder-Smith would exclaim. These girls have no idea what wonders are going on inside their muscles.According to the Bible’s account of the pre-Flood generations, these systems worked in Methuselah for almost a millennium (989 years). Every moment of every day and night, Methuselah’s heart never skipped a beat. The performance of God’s creations vastly exceed the capabilities of the world’s greatest inventors. Should we not give thanks for these gifts? (Visited 94 times, 13 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
