Heart disease and stroke kill more women than cancer, lung disease, Alzheimer disease and accidents combined. In fact, women are more at risk for stroke than men. Overall, deaths from cardiovascular disease have decreased since 1980. However, younger women are developing it more often since obesity is such a problem. The American Heart Association has updated its guidelines for prevention of cardiovascular disease in women. The association believes the following guidelines will reduce a woman’s risk of heart attack and stroke:Follow these tips• Keep total blood cholesterol under 200 milligrams per deciliter• Maintain blood pressure under 120/80• Keep fasting blood glucose under 100• Maintain a normal body weight with a BMI under 25 (overweight is 25-29 and obese is 30 or more)• Do not smoke• Do at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week (30 minutes a day, five days a week) or at least 75 minutes a week of vigorous activity (at least 20 minutes a day, four days a week)• Eat a diet similar to the DASH dietSpecific diet recommendations includes eating at least 4.5 cups of vegetables and fruits per day at meals and snacks. Darker and more vibrant colored fruits and vegetables tend to be more nutritious. Good choices include leafy greens, berries, tomatoes, peaches, melons, oranges, broccoli, sweet potatoes and cooked dried beans and peas.Fish, fiber and whole grainsEat fish twice a week. Oily fish, like salmon, trout and water-packed tuna, are the best choices.Consume at least 30 grams of fiber a day. The best sources are bran cereal, beans and peas. Eat whole grain foods at least three times a day. This includes whole wheat bread, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, whole grain cereals, quinoa, whole wheat couscous and bulgur. Limit sugar intake to less than five servings a week. Don’t forget to cut back on sugary drinks. One serving of sugar is one tablespoon of granulated sugar, a tablespoon of jam or jelly, a half cup of sorbet or one cup of lemonade. Eat beans, peas, nuts and seeds at least four times a week. A serving is one-third of a cup of unsalted nuts, two tablespoons of peanut butter or seeds, and a half cup of cooked beans or peas. Avoid macadamia nuts as they are too high in saturated fat.Eat less saturated fatCut saturated fat to less than 7 percent of your total calories. This can be done by not frying foods, trimming the fat off meat, removing the skin from poultry and avoiding high-fat desserts, butter, full-fat cheese and regular sour cream.Eat less than 150 milligrams of cholesterol a day by keeping meat, poultry and fish portions to less than 3 ounces per meal (about the size of a deck of cards) and eating egg yolks less often.Drink less than one drink of alcohol per day. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 1.5 ounces of distilled liquor and 4 ounces of wine.Limit sodium to 1,500 milligrams per day to help control blood pressure. Do not add salt to food when cooking or at the table. Eat mainly fresh or unsalted canned and frozen foods, and dine out infrequently.

Orsted remains focused on U.S. offshore wind market FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Wall Street Journal:Danish energy company Ørsted A/S is considering a bid for several U.S. offshore-wind projects and already has the required funding in place, the company’s finance chief said.“There are a lot of auctions coming up in the U.S.,” said Ørsted Chief Financial Officer Marianne Wiinholt in an interview Friday with CFO Journal. “We feel we are well-positioned.”The U.S. would be key to Ørsted’s efforts to grow its global footprint. The company has installed about 25% of the installed offshore-wind capacity in the world, according to Marcus Bellander, an analyst at Nordea Bank AB.Earlier in August, Ørsted made its first major investment in the U.S. when it agreed to buy Lincoln Clean Energy LLC, a Chicago-based onshore wind and solar company, for $580 million.Bidding for capacity in the U.S. is next on the agenda. Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey each plan to select a bidder for offshore-wind projects in the coming quarters. Connecticut is set to announce the winner of a zero-carbon energy project in the next few months. The company hasn’t made a decision on which U.S. projects it will target. “We are looking into all of them,” Ms. Wiinholt said.The CFO’s comments come after Ørsted lost out in an auction in Massachusetts in May. It was a major setback in its quest to enter the U.S. market. “This was unexpected,” Mr. Bellander said.More ($): Denmark’s Ørsted plans to bid on new U.S. offshore-wind projects
Wells looks back at his term as chief justice Wells looks back at his term as chief justice Senior Editor Even almost 18 months after the event, fallout from the disputed 2000 presidential election continues to amaze Supreme Court Justice Charles Wells.Speaking in his distinctive measured, gravelly tones, Wells recalled reading a book on the disputed election that catapulted him and the rest of the court to international fame. He realized, with surprise, that the learned author hadn’t read the court’s decisions, although he was presuming to criticize them.And an incoming law clerk, a former law review editor, told him of getting scholarly articles discussing post-election court decisions that had the same flaw.It’s difficult to look back on Wells’ two years as the judicial branch’s top officer without dwelling on the election controversy. But just as pundits misjudge the court’s opinions in that case, it can be misleading to evaluate that period solely by one case, albeit the most publicized in the court’s history.During that period, the court dealt with an increasing caseload, high-profile death penalty legislation, lower profile efforts to streamline the handling of death penalty cases, and educating a slew of new legislators brought in by term limits on what the court does.Maybe the best metaphor is death penalty cases. Early in 2000, just before Wells assumed the chief justice post, the legislature passed the Death Penalty Reform Act of 2000. A couple months later, during the regular session, the court struck down the law, noting among other reasons it assigned to the legislature court rule-making authority given by the Florida Constitution to the court.Unnoticed in the storm of criticism from lawmakers was the court pointing out in the opinion that the lengthy appeals process could be shortened — which was a major goal of the bill — by reforming some records laws to cut protracted delays in providing records needed in appeals. The legislature did not act on that recommendation.But the court, which was already heavily involved in that area, continued its efforts.Wells noted that former Chief Justice Major Harding had created a special commission, headed by Judge Stan Morris, in 1999 to look at death penalty procedures. Wells kept the commission working during his term.The result is the court has adopted a revised appellate rule that incorporates many procedural changes, both recommended by the commission and desired by the legislature, Wells said.He and the court worked with legislative leaders to see that the Capital Collateral Regional Counsels were adequately funded. Working with lawmakers and the legislature’s Commission on Capital Cases, the court helped bring in the registry for capital cases, which provides state money to hire private counsel for death appeals when the CCRCs have a conflict or are overworked.Another byproduct of the death penalty issue and other tensions between the court and lawmakers was a special commission appointed to study the Supreme Court’s workload. (Lawmakers had been considering a bill to add two more justices to the court, but decided on the study instead.) That panel began its work as Wells became chief justice and spent months studying the court’s growing workload.“They recommended against the expansion of the number of people on this court or the division of this court [into civil and criminal sections],” the chief justice recalled. “But they recognized because of the heavy caseload of the court, particularly with respect to the death penalty cases, this court has to have adequate staff and adequate technology to deal with this type of burgeoning caseload.”The study impressed legislators and helped heal the rifts, he added.“I’m pleased that what was a contentiousness between the legislature and the court over the constitutionality of the death penalty act really wound up as something the court and legislature could get together on in the end,” he said. “Through the workload commission and the court adopting procedures, we made considerable progress and diffused the emotion that was in the debate back in the spring of 2000.”But the workload study did point out an undeniable trend and one Wells thinks soon may require changes in court procedures: The Supreme Court in recent years has sustained a huge increase in its workload, particularly in cases where it has original jurisdiction.He said that in 1994, his first year on the court, there were around 1,900 total filings in the court. By 2001, that had risen to 2,900 — or about 50 percent more. Most types of case filings — death penalty, discretionary review, and other types — have remained steady or had slight increases. But the number of original proceedings went from 914 to 1,560 for that period. And while the number of decisions issued by the court still averages around 350 a year, the number of orders had gone from 1,584 to 2,557.“That type of expansion in the court’s caseload has to be paid attention to, and we are attempting to do that through the good use of staff and technology,” Wells said. “It again is going to require some degree of study on whether some types of cases that come directly to the court should come through the lower courts.”The court’s relationship with legislators will be invaluable in the next two years as lawmakers work to comply with a 1988 constitutional amendment — known as Revision 7 — mandating that the state take over significant trial court costs from counties. The court system has been working on that since.“We began an effort with the State Court Administrator’s office to go into each circuit and explain to the judges and the court administrators the impact that Revision 7 was going to have,” Wells said. The hope was to have worked with the legislature closely on that issue for the past two years, but the election and then budget problems diverted lawmakers’ attention.But in the meantime, the court set up the State Court Budget Commission “to have a formal process through which the trial court budget could go, and the commission would make recommendations to the court,” he said. “Now that we’re getting down to the short period of time, I’ve had discussions both with the new Senate leadership, and the probable House leadership and we’re very hopeful that across the summer that’s going to begin to take some shape.”Wells said he thinks the trial court budget process will be adopted by the legislature as it makes the funding transition, which must be completed by July 2004.The court also did a 10-year review of the Racial and Ethnic Bias Study Commission report.“One of the concrete things that came out of that [review] is that each of the 20 circuits has developed a plan to fight racial bias in the circuits,” Wells said. “I think we have taken a measured step in trying to work on what has to be constant vigilance against racial and ethnic bias in the branch.”Of course the subject that still gets the most attention from the past two years is the 2000 election case, which the chief justice has referred to before as “our extended holiday festivities.”“We certainly raised the level of awareness of our courts and the court system across the nation,” Wells said with a smile. “I still receive invitations and have made talks around the United States on our handling of the election cases — not from a standpoint of what substantive law the decisions made, but from the procedures of the court.“I find as I travel around the country that we get pretty high marks for the manner in which we handled the cases. We got the opinions and information out and in a very expeditious and fair way. There’s a general recognition of the enormous scrutiny that was on the court during that period of time. People have given us good marks for the way that was handled.”He also sees a couple of important benefits from the controversy. One, surprisingly, is better relationships with legislators and a better understanding by lawmakers of what the courts do and their importance.“We came right out of the election cases into a legislative environment in which there was a lot of concern being voiced about the court and the Bar,” Wells said. “The good news to me was that I found that there were a lot of legislators who had just been sent to Tallahassee for their first term who were very eager to learn about the court, to learn about the Bar.“I had the opportunity of having many of those freshman legislators come over and meet with me and I found that in the end, to a person, they were genuinely interested in doing things that were positive for the judicial system, because they felt the proper administration of the judicial system was important to the communities.”That session saw proposals to return to electing appellate judges, taking lawyer discipline away from the court, and other issues, “but none of those types of moves developed any real traction in the legislature,” he said. “I felt when it was over, the 2001 legislative session turned out not to be bad; there were more positives than negatives that came out.”The other benefit was public education about the court system and the overwhelming success of the court’s ongoing access initiatives in keeping the public informed about the cases. Briefs and rulings were available on the court’s Web site and the oral arguments were broadcast — without a hitch — on both TV and the Internet.The U.S. Supreme Court, when it got the case, for the first time allowed an audio broadcast of its oral arguments, which some observers attributed to the overwhelming success of the Florida Supreme Court’s televised hearings and open processes.“I came away from the election experience committed more than ever to the idea that courts, especially appellate courts, need to be as open as possible in the way that they conduct the business of the courts,” Wells said. “There are certain matters in the decisionmaking that have to be closed, but as much as possible, the public needs to see the process at work.” June 15, 2002 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News

Topics : But Russian news agencies, citing emergencies services, said three people died.The helicopter, which did not carry ammunition, crashed in a secluded area some 20 kilometers from the town of Klin outside Moscow around 8 pm, the ministry said.It added that a ministry commission had been dispatched to the scene to look into the causes of the crash.Citing preliminary information, the ministry said that a “technical malfunction” was believed to have caused the crash. A Russian army Mi-8 helicopter crashed outside Moscow during a training flight on Tuesday, killing the crew, the defense ministry said.”As a result of a crash landing the crew of the helicopter died of their wounds,” the defense ministry said.Defense ministry spokespeople, reached by AFP, declined to specify how many crew members had died. The Mi-8 is a Soviet-designed twin-turbine helicopter and is often used to transport civilians or troops.In 2018, a Mi-8 helicopter crashed shortly after takeoff in Siberia, killing all 18 people on board including three crew members.
Press Association “She’s very well. She’s going in as an underdog but deserves to take her chance. She’s only had the two runs and is a winner and a black-type filly already,” said O’Callaghan. “She was entitled to get tired on her first run and did get tired but still finished third. “The mile on better ground will suit her more and we’re hoping for a big run.” Mick Channon’s Malabar, fourth in the Guineas at Newmarket, leads the British raiders, while James Given runs both Pastoral Girl and Russian Punch. In Jack Naylor and Bocca Baciata, Harrington must surely not have had a better chance of landing her first Group One on the Flat since Pathfork won the National Stakes five years ago. Jack Naylor achieved far more at two, beating subsequent Newmarket Guineas winner Legatissimo on her final start, but she will be having her first outing for 231 days. While Jessica Harrington is better known as the trainer of the likes of former champion hurdler Jezki and legendary chaser Moscow Flyer, she is no stranger to saddling big winners on the level and has two fine chances in the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh. Bocca Baciata was slower to come to hand, but was not beaten far by tomorrow’s favourite, Found, on her debut in August and looked very good in beating Jim Bolger’s Pleascach, subsequently a Group Three winner and whom she meets again, in the Salsabil Stakes on her return. Alan Cooper, racing manager to Bocca Baciata’s owners, Flaxman Stables, said: “The filly is very well and her form lines look very good. “She won on yielding ground on her first run of the year and I think that suits her very well, but I don’t think better ground would be a problem, either. “She’s coming back to a mile, which shouldn’t be a problem. We’ll see what happens.” As well as Found, Aidan O’Brien runs Kissed By Angels, who was an impressive winner of a trial two weeks ago where she beat Willie McCreery’s Devonshire, but her connections want another crack at the winner. She was supplemented by Godolphin on Monday. “I’m very happy with her, she has been working well and I believe running her in the Irish 1,000 Guineas is the right thing to do,” McCreery told www.godolphin.com. Michael O’Callaghan is in search of the biggest win of his career with Military Angel, who has only had two runs.

By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsNow the fun begins.The Kootenay Ice kick off the 2011-12 B.C. Major Midget Hockey League season with plenty of optimism as the interior based squad heads to Vancouver Island for a two-game set Saturday and Sunday in Nanaimo against the North Island Silvertips.And new head coach Mario DiBella isn’t shy about what his goal is for this new group of 15-17-year-old midget hockey players.“We are looking to make the playoffs for the first time in Ice history,” stated the veteran bench boss.That goal will not be easy to achieve after the Ice, under the coach last season of Simon Wheeldon, lost the likes of 18-goal scorer Jesse Knowler of Castlegar and Nelson’s Dryden Hunt to the Western Hockey League and sniper Luke Bertolucci to the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL.However, DiBella believes he has the players ready to fill the skates of the rookie Tier I hockey players.“We have Jake Lucchini (Trail), Darren Medeiros (Castlegar) and Quinn Klimchuk (Castlegar) who are equally as talented as the (Hunt, Knowler and Bertolucci),” DiBella said of his three second-year players.“We’ve also added Mitch Foyle (Fruitvale), Jeremy McGregor (Christina Lake) and Brandon Savaia (Grand Forks) as talented first years that can put the busier in the basket.”The Ice has three grads from the Nelson Minor Hockey Association in Colton Dachwitz, Greyson Reitmeier and late edition Brandon Sookro.Cole Arcuri, thought to be a lock to make the Ice at defence, decided to return to the Okanagan Hockey Association.After the Island trip, the Ice are idle until opening the home part of the season October 8-9 at the NDCC Arena against Okanagan Rockets.The home dates will shift around rinks in the West Kootenay, with stops in Castlegar, Trail and Grand Forks.DiBella likes the idea of showcasing the players throughout the region.“I feel it’s good for the program and it provides home games where the players live,” said DiBella, who has former Nelson Leaf assistant coach Sean Dooley with him behind the Ice bench.The B.CMMHL was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15, 16 and 17 year olds the opportunity to play at a high level within their age group.Each year all Major Midget League teams have the opportunity to compete for the National Midget Championship.Kootenay finished the 2010-11 season in 10th spot with a 8-25-7 record with the Vancouver Northwest Giants winning the BCMMHL [email protected]
