City of West Palm Beach Launches Mobile Pop-up Testing Site

first_imgWest Palm Beach city leaders are working to launch a new testing effort to reach undeserved communities.On Saturday, the city’s Coronavirus Response Team established a pop-up mobile testing site at Gaines Park for those with or without a car to get tested.“There are a number if people that can’t get out to the more established testing sites. Those testing sites are drive-thru what if you don’t have a car,” says West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James.He continues, “We’re the first municipality in the county to do this we did it in Coleman Park about two weeks ago where we were able to test 150 people.”With the Urban League, FoundCare, and Quantum Foundation, we are conducting drive-thru Covid-19 testing of WPB residents living in 33401, 33407 zips at Gaines Park until 1PM. We are now accepting more patients from these zip codes, and you do not need an appointment. #wpbtogether pic.twitter.com/mu7XEef13W— City of West Palm Beach (@westpalmbch) April 25, 2020 The site began by appointment only and is serving people over age 16.Firefighters and nurses helped about 500 people on Saturday.The initiative is a joint effort from the City’s Coronavirus Response Team and several local organizations including the Quantum Foundation, FoundCare Inc., and the Urban League of Palm Beach County.“The palm trees dot our landscape. They will bend and they will sway when the storm winds come but they won’t break and I know that West Palm Beach community will not break. We are strong we will get through this,” adds James.last_img read more

Thankfully the rail was open and I took that spot, I realized I was going a little slow so I said I’m in the perfect spot. Once she made the lead, she relaxed real nice.  My plan was to angle outside and put the pressure on the other filly (Der Lu), but we ended up inside and she fought back.”“I want to thank everyone who always gives me an opportunity, I always try my best.”DRAYDEN VAN DYKE, DER LU, SECOND:  “She relaxed really well and she ran well.  That other filly just came back and got us.  Too good to lose.”TRAINER QUOTESANDREW LERNER, QUEEN BEE TO YOU, WINNER: “She has been training so well, she coming into each race so happy and doing so extremely well. The plan wasn’t to be that close but in the paddock she was so much on the muscle, I told Ruben, ‘She’s not gonna let you hold her back this time.’ So I got a little nervous that he wasn’t able to get outside but  what a brilliant ride by Ruben he’s just done so good for us.“She’s just one of those gritty mares that wants to win.  She’s just all heart and you gotta love horses like that.  It’s unbelievable, just to saddle next to guys like Bob Baffert, Richard Mandella and Richie Baltas, guys I’ve looked up to growing up and going to the races.  It’s incredible to be in the same paddock with them, but to be standing here in the Winner’s Circle, it means a lot.”CHRISTOPHER ST.

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: CARBS – FRIEND OR FOE

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Carbs are public enemy No1!!!!!

It’s common knowledge that if you want to lose weight, you simply cannot eat carbs because they make you fat….right?Not exactly.Carbohydrates are probably the most misunderstood of all the macronutrients. 
A few years ago, the humble potato was outlawed and only fools ate them. So which is it to be? 
High carb, low carb, no carb; which will give us the best results? 

The answer is…all of them.It depends on what your objective actually is.For weight loss, the simplicity of reducing carbs or eliminating them from the diet is a big selling point. 
You have reduced or eliminated an entire food group, so overall calories have reduced and weight loss will be inevitable. 

Simple!What isn’t simple is actually sticking to it. 

A diet that is based on deprivation is never easy and the end result after the diet has finished is usually a return to normal eating habits and a return to your previous weight. What we want to achieve when we decide to change our health for the better, is a way that we can do this and be able to enjoy life. 

If you can’t do this then what is the point?I look awesome, but I’m miserable inside??Not exactly a long term solution.So the question is……CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT AND STILL EAT CARBS???Yes, yes you can. What people need to realise is what low carb actually is.0-50g carbs is classed as Ketogenic. 

You are basically eating green leafy vegetables so our bodies can transition to burning fatty acids for energy. 
This is a great way to lose body-fat fast, but for most, it is not sustainable long term. 
Performance will also suffer if you lift weights or play sports.50-100g is classed as Low CarbThis is a good range for slow, healthy weight loss. 
Starchy carbs are reduced and fruit and veg are eaten liberally. 
Insulin production will be low so fat burning should be high. 100-150g is classed as moderate Carb.If you are active, train regularly and have your body where you want it, this is the bottom end of your carbohydrate intake. 
(If you are highly active and train 6+ times per week, this would be too low.)150-300g+ is classed as High CarbThis is where you can get slow weight gain, great if you lift weights and are trying to pack on muscle, not so great if you are trying to drop a dress size. 
But again, this is a guide line. I have had female clients lose body-fat and gain muscle in and around consuming 250g of carbs per day.Like I said earlier, the amount that you eat is goal dependant.If you are a triathlete who trains 2-3 times per day 5-6 days per week, going low carb is not the best choice. 
You would be at the upper levels of the high carb diet and even higher on days leading up to an event.
They are needed for energy and for optimal performance.If you have 1 stone to lose in order to drop a dress size then you could do this by going low carb and not over restricting the types that you eat. 
Just allow an appropriate amount of time to do this.If you are severely overweight with impending health problems, high blood pressure, over producing insulin due to chronically high blood sugars, then the lower end of the scale would probably be your best starting point.As you may be starting to figure out, there is no one-size-fits-all prescription here. We are all different weights, we have different activity levels, and we have different fitness goals.
But I hope this will help you to understand that carbs are not bad. 
Inactivity and the over consumption are the real problems.

Moya Brennan to get lifetime achievement honour at RTE Folk Awards

first_imgDonegal singer Moya Brennan is to receive the lifetime achievement award in this year’s RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards.As the lead singer of Clannad, Brennan has been a champion of traditional music for decades.She has already won Grammy, Bafta and Ivor Novello awards and worked on projects with U2, the Chieftains, Paul Young, Michael Crawford and others. Moya was one of nine children of Máire and Leo Brennan who would perform in the family’s bar “Leo’s”.Unveiling the singer as this year’s lifetime achievement winner, RTE’s head of arts and culture Ann-Marie Power said she was an ambassador for Ireland at a very interesting time in the country’s history.“Throughout her career as a solo artist, she has drawn from the well of history and home while also not being afraid to take on a new challenge or direction,” she said.“She is also admirably very committed to nurturing young talent with her monthly nights in Donegal.” This year’s Irish Folk Awards will take place at Vicar Street in Dublin on October 24 and will be hosted by John Creedon and Ruth Smith. Moya Brennan to get lifetime achievement honour at RTE Folk Awards was last modified: September 20th, 2019 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:awardClannaddonegalMoya BrennanRTElast_img read more

Ski Enceladus

first_imgWant the ultimate in powder snow?  Ski Enceladus, a little moon of Saturn.  The snow is deep and vast.  Drawbacks: except for occasional craters and steep canyons, the land is flat; there are no ski lifts; there is no air; you would weigh one or two pounds, and transportation will cost you billions of dollars.  Other than that, science news outlets are advertising it as a great place for snow lovers! “Enceladus weather: Snow flurries and perfect powder for skiing.”  That’s PhysOrg’s travel ad (a.k.a. science report) earlier this month. Cassini took two close passes by Enceladus this month, #14 on October 1 at 99 km, and #15 on October 19 at 765 miles.  In the second, the spacecraft was able to watch the light of two stars flicker on and off through the plumes.  The Cassini Imaging Team site Ciclops.org posted a preview of raw images from the latest flyby.  Another one, #16, comes up on November 6 at 496 km.  After a pause, there will be more close passes in March, April and May. That this little moon should have powder snow is astonishing.  The fine talcum-powder-size ice settles down by gravitational attraction from the particles spewing out of the moon’s south pole geysers. PhysOrg said the snow is not composed of snowflakes like we have on Earth, which require an atmosphere.  Instead, tiny ice particles fall on ballistic paths from the ejection sites (long, deep canyons called “tiger stripes” at the south pole).  Although it’s impossible to know the texture and depth of the deposits directly, scientists can infer the particle composition by comparing visible, ultraviolet and near-infrared measurements of the same regions.  According to Dr. Paul Schenk of the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, the accumulated particles would be ideal for skiing. How long has this been going on?  The PhysOrg article stated, “Mapping of these deposits indicate that the plumes and their heat source are relatively long-lived features lasting millennia and probably tens of million years or more, and have blanketed areas of the surface in a thick layer of tiny ice particles.”  The error bars on that statement extend four orders of magnitude.  The problem with the higher figure (tens of millions of years) is keeping that amount of power going on this little moon for so long.  In fact, to believe that this moon is the assumed age of Saturn, little Enceladus would be coating itself with powder snow for 4.5 billion years.  Is there that much source water available?  If the geysering started more recently, what turned it on? Readers should remember that the geyser discovery was a surprise.  “The discovery by instruments aboard the Cassini orbiter that there’s a currently active plume of icy dust and vapour from Enceladus has revolutionized planetary science,” Schenk said.  It would seem that billion-year snow-coating of this moon would erase features.  We see some softening of crater edges, but numerous cracks and evidences of tectonic activity are visible.  From photos showing recent exposure of accumulated ice, scientists estimate some of the deposits are as much as a hundred meters thick at a maximum.  Using “models of plume deposition” that result in extremely slow accumulation, scientists did some calculations.  “To accumulate 100 meters of deposits would require a few tens of millions of years or so.” But that leads to a confusing conundrum: “This is important as it suggests that the thermal heat source required to drive the plumes and maintain any liquid water under the icy crust would also have to be similarly long-lived.” Long-lived, but long-lived enough?  Why are there not thousands of meters of deposits?  Can these plumes really have been active that long?  What is the energy source in such a small moon that should have frozen solid, like nearby Mimas, long ago?  So much material is coming out of Enceladus that it creates a giant ring around Saturn (the E-ring), composed of micron-size particles. Another moon of Saturn got some press this month: Titan, the largest.  Maps of this atmosphere-shrouded giant keep getting better and better (see Space.com).  Was Space.com able to resist the urge to say that Titan sheds light on the origin of life?  Yes! –but only on that first article about the maps.  In “The hazy history of air on Saturn’s moon Titan,” Shaun McCormack (a contributor to Astrobiology Magazine), used the L-word six times in another Space.com article.  (News flash: No life has been found on Titan, and it is almost 300 degrees below zero there.)  McCormack agreed the idea is somewhat incredible; “This is remarkable, because it was thought that Earth and Titan were made from a vastly different recipe of materials in drastically different temperatures,” he said.  But then he gave good press to some Spanish astrobiologists who envision Titan as a laboratory for the origin of life. Speaking of snow, the idea of a prehistoric “Snowball Earth” has been going in and out of fashion.  Astrobiology Magazine wove a tale about how life might have survived a global freeze, but the French, according to Science Daily, are challenging the very concept.  “Their work, published in the journal Nature, challenges part of the so-called ‘Snowball Earth’ hypothesis and rekindles the debate about the origins of the deglaciation mechanism.”  They could not find evidence for a steep climb in carbon dioxide levels.  That means Earth could never have gotten out of a deep freeze. Thankfully, we live on a planet with just enough ice and snow to give us fun things to do in the winter without making skiing mandatory 24 x 7 x 52. “Snowball Earth” is another one of those suggestive phrases that secular scientists come up with to titillate the imagination.  They don’t need evidence for it; in fact, it can contradict common sense – to get out of it requires ad hoc conditions.  But if it feeds the Grand Myth, it is useful.  The Grand Myth requires Earth to be born in fire, then go through trial by ice, then end up just right, as if testing all the options of Goldilocks’ soup.  Then, in some warm little pond, Evolution conjures up the elixir of life, just like it did with liquid methane on Titan.  Storytelling is fun because no evidence is required. Another observation of interest to psychologists of science (a new discipline emerging, according to Medical Xpress) is how the consensus-huggers deal with anomalies.  The Big Question that should emerge from observations of Enceladus is why these geysers are active today, if Enceladus is billions of years old.  A small sparkler does not burn for a year, and a small moon the diameter of Arizona does not have the heat to last 4.5 billion years.  How do the scientists respond?  They say it might have been going on for a few tens of millions of years.  Not even close.  Ten million is to a billion as one foot to a hundred feet.  Big problem.  Quick; let’s talk about life on Titan instead!(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
