First Division Title Race: Oilers’ Unbeaten Run Continues

first_imgWednesday’s result sent Oilers six points ahead of BYC and Watanga FC The deciding moment of the 2018/19 LFA-Orange First Division league is nearing as the league gradually draws to a close.With eight games left to be played, league leaders LPRC Oilers continued their unbeaten run on Wednesday, May 15, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium after a 1-1 draw against LISCR FC.LISCR FC needed a late goal from Armah Vaikainah to force the league leaders to the one-all draw. The deserving equalizer came in the 85th minute after LISCR intensified the pressure in their attacks with forward Edward Ledlum leading the attack.Oilers had gone ahead in the first half thanks to a 40th minute goal from Dominic Jarteh.LISCR’s equalizer also brought to an end goalkeeper Prince Wlame’s clean sheet streak after keeping eight successive clean sheets and has so far kept 11 in 14 games.The result was not a good one for LISCR as they dropped to the fourth position. However, it was a significant result for Oilers as head Coach Cooper Sannah described LISCR as one of the biggest bridges that he has crossed on his championship journey.“I am partly convinced that my team will go undefeated this season, because LISCR is one of the best clubs as compared to BYC, now that we have them behind us, the other smaller teams, no disrespect to them, we are going to win them,” Coach Sannah said in his post-match interview.Wednesday’s result sent Oilers six points ahead of BYC and Watanga FC that moved up to the third position following their 3-1 against Keitrace FC on Wednesday at the Nancy B. Doe Stadium.In other league games, Barrack Young Controllers stumble along the way after falling to a 2-1 defeat against Nimba United at the North Star Sports pitch in Mount Barclay.Striker Mustapha Lomell, former striker of Nimba United, scored the opener for BYC, before Varney Dukuly and Morris Janteh came to the ‘Mountaineers’ rescue. It was striker Dukuly’s 13th goal out of 14 games, moving level with Christopher Jackson of LISCR FC.United remained in their same fifth position, but are now leveled on points with LISCR FC.Earlier at the ATS, FC Fassell and Monrovia Club Breweries settled to a 1-1. The draw moved Breweries a step above to the sixth position with 17 points out of 14 games, while Fassell remained at the bottom of the table with four points.Elsewhere, relegation battled, Jubilee FC suffered a 2-1 defeat against 9th placed NPA Anchors, while Nimba FC made five consecutive home wins by defeating Small Town FC 2-1 at the Ganta Sports pitch in Ganta, Nimba County.The league will continue on Sunday with another six games taking place at various venues across the country.Sunday, May 19, 2019 Fixtures:LPRC Oilers vs. NPA Anchors -Kakata- 2:00PMKeitrace FC vs. FC Fassell- Kakata- 4:00-PMWatanga FC vs. Nimba United- ATS- 2:00PMSmall Town FC vs. LISCR FC -ATS- 4:00PMBYC vs. Jubilee FC – Blue Field- 4:00PMNimba FC vs. MC Breweries- Ganta- 4:00PMShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

In this post, we will delve into the science surrounding the ketogenic diet for weight loss.What does the science say? Low-fat diets are commonly recommended for weight loss, but recent randomized controlled trials have compared the ketogenic and low-fat diet’s effectiveness in weight loss. Thus far, studies have shown that low carbohydrate diets induce greater short-term weight loss than a balanced diet, but the diets are equally successful long-term:“In this meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials comparing the effects of low-carbohydrate vs low-fat diets, low-carbohydrate diets were more effective in inducing weight loss after 6 months, but this effect was no longer obvious after 12 months of follow-up”2“Our results show that the weight loss in overweight and obese subjects with or without diabetes on isoenergetic low CHO or balanced weight loss diets was similar at 3–6 months and at 1–2 years”3We do not yet know the effectiveness of a ketogenic diet, nor have we identified the mechanism behind the weight loss it can cause. Traditional weight-loss diets work on the principle of consuming fewer calories than a person burns during everyday living and exercise. Possibilities for weight loss on the keto diet include:Increased satiety due to protein consumption1Reduction in lipogenesis (the synthesis of fat in the body) and increased lipolysis (the breakdown of fat in the body)1Increased metabolic efficiency due to higher fat consumption1Increased energy expended in gluconeogenesis (the synthesis of glucose, a type of sugar, in the body)1It is important to be mindful that ketogenic diets are difficult to stay on for long and many nutrient-dense foods are rich in carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, dairy products, whole grains (oats, rice, wheat), and legumes. Also, the long-term health impacts of a ketogenic diet remain unknown as many studies have a 6-month to a year duration. Finally, a high-fat diet can have negative health impacts including increased total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol.2 Due to insufficient supporting evidence for the ketogenic diet, a balanced diet and exercise plan is still the recommended route towards weight loss for the general population.4To learn more about the Ketogenic diet please tune in to our free webinar The Ketogenic Diet-Is it Another Fad?  February 26, 2019 at 11:00 am ET.

UK government blocked sensational Ferenc Puskas dealby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveIt’s been revealed Everton made a sensational attempt to sign Hungarian and Real Madrid great Ferenc Puskas.The move is confirmed in Gavin Buckland’s book on Everton in the 1960s “Money Can’t Buy Us Love”.The Liverpool Echo reports the book reveals that John Moores, the benefactor of the Mersey Millionaires, tried to use his financial muscle to sign the Real Madrid magician in 1960, the year Puskas scored four goals in the famous European Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt at Hampden Park.Moores’ words delivered to Everton shareholders in December 1960 are published:”It is no use people telling us to go out and buy world-class players like Real Madrid can do. The League rules will not allow it.”If I had offered Puskas a £15,000 signing on fee when he left Hungary, and made him a director of Littlewoods at £10,000 a year, I still could not have signed him for Everton because the Home Office would not have admitted him into the country as an alien, the Players’ Union would have objected and the League would have vetoed it too.”The Everton chairman then bitterly fired off his frustrations to Mike Langley of the Daily Express in August 1962.”Real Madrid, with naturalised Hungarians and Argentinians, are almost helped by the Spanish government to build the world’s best team.”Our government has no interest in football apart from taking millions in pools money out of the game and putting none of it back.” last_img read more

Video: Former Baylor President Botches Interview, PR Woman Comes To His Aid

first_imgJust when you thought former Baylor president Ken Starr couldn’t possibly look any worse, he goes and botches a television interview in the worst kind of way. During an interview with KWTX News 10 Thursday, an answer he gave regarding a victim’s email led to a communications specialist he brought with him to stop the interview, pull him aside and suggest that he use a different response. Starr then sits down and looks to the specialist once again for help before providing the new, scripted response. The entire thing was caught on camera, and KWTX posted the video to its Facebook page.Baylor continues to make things worse for itself, and Starr isn’t helping. He may no longer be president, but the university might have to take it a step further and separate itself completely.last_img read more

Globus Maritime Remains in Red in Q1

first_imgzoom Greek dry bulk shipping company Globus Maritime Limited reported a 50 percent increase in revenues for the first quarter this year reaching USD 2.69 million compared to the corresponding quarter from 2016.The 50% increase in voyage revenues was mainly attributed to the increase in the average time charter rates during the  quarter as TCE rate reached USD 5,079 per vessel per day versus last year’s equivalent of USD 2,211, an increase of 130%.However, total comprehensive loss for the first quarter of the year amounted to USD 2.3 million, compared to USD 1.7 million for the same period last year.“The dry bulk shipping market started the year (2017) weak but gradually improved during the first quarter and especially towards the end of the quarter. We remain vigilant, operating in the spot market but getting longer term cover for our vessels when we see good opportunities. 2016 proved to be a very challenging year, the industry experienced multiyear market lows but we remain cautiously optimistic for the future as the world economy stabilizes and grows,” Athanasios Feidakis, President, Chief Executive Officer of Globus Maritime Limited, said.During the quarter the company reduced its debt under loan agreements by about 30% compared to Q1 2016, having secured a breather from lenders in March.As explained by Feidakis, the move is aimed at shielding the company from any near term market volatility.“The market started to soften recently but the signals we get for the market encourage us to remain cautiously optimistic,” he added.Globus’ subsidiaries own and operate seven vessels with a total carrying capacity of 300,571 dwt, and all of them are currently operating on short term time charters.last_img read more

GermanRussian pipeline takes shape despite US protests

first_imgMUKRAN, Germany – Sparks fly and machines whir as workers busily prepare thousands of steel pipes that will become part of a vast undersea pipeline bringing gas from Russia to Germany’s northeastern Baltic coast.The Nord Stream 2 project will double the amount of natural gas Russia can funnel directly to the heart of Europe from newly tapped reserves in Siberia, intentionally skirting Eastern European nations like Poland and Ukraine. It also promises much-needed jobs in this poor German backwater, some three hours’ drive north of Berlin.The United States and some other German allies have bristled at the project, warning that it could give Moscow greater leverage over Western Europe.Energy-poor Germany already relies heavily on Russian gas and so far Chancellor Angela Merkel has deftly kept the new $11 billion pipeline off the table while imposing sanctions against Russia for its actions in Ukraine.But as plans become closer to reality, the pressure has increased on her, and last month after meetings with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko she acknowledged that Nord Stream 2 was more than just a business project, saying that “political factors have to be taken into account.”With Merkel heading to Sochi on Friday for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a senior U.S. diplomat warned that proceeding with the project could result in sanctions for those involved.“We would be delighted if the project did not take place,” U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary Sandra Oudkirk, an energy policy expert in the State Department, told reporters in Berlin on Thursday.She said Washington is concerned Nord Stream 2 could increase Russia’s “malign influence” in Europe.Oudkirk said the new pipeline would divert gas flows away from Ukraine, which depends heavily on transit fees, and could become a pathway for Russia to install surveillance equipment in the Baltic Sea, a sensitive military region.She said the U.S. is “exerting as much persuasive power” as it can to stop the project, and noted that Congress has given the U.S. administration explicit authority to impose sanctions in connection with Russian pipeline projects if necessary.“Any pipeline project — and there are many multiple pipeline projects in the world that are potentially covered by this sanctions authority — is in an elevated position of sanctions risk,” she said.Jens Mueller, a spokesman for Nord Stream 2, dismissed concerns from the U.S. and several European countries, saying the new pipeline would merely be one of many sources of natural gas for Europe.“This pipeline can’t be used to blackmail or negatively affect any country,” he told The Associated Press in an interview.Merkel’s trip to the Black Sea resort of Sochi, her first visit to Russia in a year, will be a diplomatic balancing act.While the German leader has taken a hard line on Russian actions in recent years — from the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria to the chemical attack on a former Russian spy in Britain — Germany badly needs to secure its gas supply and Berlin has calculated that Nord Stream 2 offers the best deal.Europe’s biggest economy is also the world’s biggest importer of natural gas. According to Kirsten Westphal, an energy policy expert at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, said its import needs are likely to grow.German chemical giant BASF, a major investor in Nord Stream 2, alone uses more gas than the country of Denmark.Under Merkel, Germany has also set itself an ambitious goal of switching off all nuclear plants by 2022. While renewable power is on the rise, coal forms the bedrock of Germany’s energy mix, a fact that’s not compatible with the country’s pledge to sharply reduce carbon emissions.“If you want to take climate goals seriously then gas is simply an important source of energy,” said Westphal.From the end of 2019 when it’s to go online, the twin pipes of Nord Stream 2 will pump up to 55 billion cubic meters of gas to Western Europe each year, the same as its predecessor Nord Stream 1, which runs from the Russian city of Vyborg under the Baltic to the German city of Greifswald. The additional gas is needed to fill a projected decline in supply from Norway and the Netherlands, as their reserves wane.The aging Ukrainian Gas Transmission System, meanwhile, is a Soviet-era relic in bad need of upgrading and unlikely to be competitive in the foreseeable future. Its loss would be a severe blow to Kyiv, which earns up to 2 billion euros ($2.35 billion) a year from transit fees — some 2 per cent of the country’s gross domestic product.A deal that keeps Kyiv in the mix could help normalize relations between Ukraine and Russia, Moscow and Berlin.“A compromise could be that on the one hand the pipeline project isn’t blocked any further,” said Claudia Kemfert, a senior energy expert at the German Institute for Economic Research. “On the other hand Russia would commit itself to keep using the gas route through Ukraine, so that all sides have a face-saving result.”Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert indicated that some of the gas that passed through Ukraine’s pipes last year — over 90 billion cubic meters — will keep flowing in future.“In the end, but we’re not there yet, it will also be about the volume of gas transiting (through Ukraine),” he said.“Of course it makes a difference how many billion cubic meters it is. But I can’t give you a target number. We believe it needs to be resolved in talks and we hope that, piece by piece, things will move forward.”___Jordans reported from Berlin.last_img read more
