Dear Mountain Mama,Many of my friends follow a Paleo lifestyle. That means that they don’t eat grains, bread, pasta, potatoes, sugar, or processed carbs. They claim that the feel great and have encouraged me to try a 30-day Paleo challenge.I’m a runner. Is it healthy for me to keep my mileage up and run on a Paleo diet?Thanks,Runner Guy————————————————————————- Dear Runner Guy,Paleo eating has definitely caught on, and many feel transformed by the weight loss and energy gain they feel as a result. Eating Paleo means there are a lot of foods you can’t eat. But like everything in life, it might be better to focus on the positive – what you can eat. Eating Paleo means a high fat, medium protein, and low carb diet, including lots of meat (preferably organic, grass fed), eggs (free range), fish (not farmed), non starchy vegetables, berries and some other fruit in moderation, and nuts.Prior to the agricultural revolution, our ancestors ate Paleo, which is why it’s been dubbed the “caveman diet.” Cavemen didn’t run long distances, and had no need to eat gels or gulp energy drinks. But Runner Guy, you may require quick acting carbs depending on how long you run. As a general rule, most people can run for one hour or less without requiring carb supplements like gels or sport drinks.Without enough energy, some runner’s suffer a low blood sugar level and may experience “bonking.” When it happens, your body’s desire to nestle down in a gutter may override your brain’s willpower to keep going. Once after a long run in New Zealand I reported to a group of friends that I had “bonked” around mile 10. They laughed hysterically and high-fived me before letting me in on the joke – Kiwis use the term bonk to refer to sex, which would have been a much more fun diversion during a long run.Runner Guy, let’s talk about the science behind following a Paleo eating regime, which is that the body will learn to burn fat for fuel since so few carbs are readily available for energy. For longer runs, most people’s bodies aren’t able to burn fat fast enough to keep up with their energy requirements.Many ultra runners who follow a Paleo diet modify it somewhat. They load up on nutrient-rich complex carbs like yams and winter squash before races instead of pasta and bread. But they do tweak the Paleo guidelines so that they consume higher amounts of carbohydrates required for their performance and recovery needs. Most claim that returning to a strict Paleo diet a day or two after a long mileage diet helps them keep their weight down and ensure that they maintain even blood insulin levels.Runner Guy, give the Paleo lifestyle a try and see how it goes. Be flexible and listen to your body. Best,Mountain MamaGOT A QUESTION FOR MOUNTAIN MAMA? SEND IT HERE
NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger, in a Credit Union Times op-ed, reminded readers of the good work credit unions do to help underserved communities, noting “we joined the credit union industry to serve people, to serve communities, and to serve the millions of Americans in need of affordable loans and safe and sound financial products.”With some calling for credit unions to be subject to the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), Berger noted the CRA was designed to prevent banks from engaging in discriminatory lending practices, and that “these practices…have been outright rejected by credit unions.”Berger argued that consumer safeguards and fair lending practices are already deeply embedded in credit unions’ business model. More so, credit unions remain proactive in ensuring underserved communities’ needs are met and that subjecting credit unions to CRA would provide no additional consumer benefit.To allow credit unions to further serve underserved communities, NAFCU has voiced strong support for the Financial Services for the Underserved Act (H.R. 4665), introduced by Reps. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., and Paul Cook, R-Calif., that would allow all credit unions to add underserved areas to their respective fields of membership. In recent testimony before the Senate Banking Committee, NCUA Chairman J. Mark McWatters openly supported this policy too.

He said that the operator of the Diamond Princess was allowing its crew members to disembark, as long as their governments had made arrangements for their repatriation. He said that all passengers had left the ship by Tuesday, which left some 400 crew members on board.He begged President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to rescue them, adding that the governments of the United States, Canada, South Korea and several European countries were planning to begin evacuating their nationals among the crew on Tuesday.”What is the government waiting for? Are they waiting for the remaining 69 of us to become infected?” said Masfud.On Feb. 5, Japanese authorities quarantined the Diamond Princess as well as its 3,711 passengers and crew for two weeks, docked in Yokohama, in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus. By the time the ship was released from quarantine on Feb. 19, however, 634 of all those aboard had tested positive for COVID-19.The Indonesian government had recently floated a plan to evacuate the remaining healthy Indonesians onboard, with officials saying that it might either send an aircraft or the Indonesian Navy’s Dr. Soeharso Hospital Ship on the humanitarian mission.However, Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto said on Monday that Jakarta was negotiating with Tokyo on the evacuation options.While acknowledging the increasing number of infected aboard the cruise ship, Terawan said the government did not want to “make a rash decision” as regards the evacuation, stressing that it wanted to ensure that the evacuation would not spread the virus to the archipelago.Indonesia maintains that it has zero confirmed cases of COVID-19 to date, although a recent report about a Japanese man raised fear among the public that infections were going undetected. The Indonesian crewmen expressed their hope that the government would airlift them from the Diamond Princess. Sudiarta noted that if Jakarta decided to send a ship, they would have to wait another 14 days or so until it arrived in Yokohama.The crewmen’s main concern is that the probability of their becoming infected would increase the longer they stayed aboard.”We don’t want to become infected after previously testing negative,” Sudiarta emphasized.Indonesian crewman I Ketut Januartika agreed with Sudiarta, and reiterated the group’s hope that the government would send a plane to bring them home.“Anything could happen in the days we [have to] wait for a ship to get here,” he said.Januartika said he was willing to be quarantined again once they had arrived back in Indonesia. “If the government could come collect us by aircraft, I am ready for another quarantine. But please, don’t come get us by ship. It would take too long while we wait here,” he said.Topics : “Although we have tested negative [for COVID-19], we are worried because we are still on the cruise ship. We have yet to breathe fresh air,” said the father of two before continuing with a plea to the Indonesian government: “Please, evacuate us as soon as possible.”Masfud, who works as a chef de partie on the ship, said that morale was rapidly diminishing among all Indonesian crew that remained on the vessel, as they lived under the constant fear of contracting the virus as they waited for the government’s decision.The native of Surabaya, East Java, stressed that the vessel was “contaminated” with the coronavirus, which had been proven by the fact that the number of confirmed cases among the ship’s passengers and crew had continued to increase throughout the quarantine period.Masfud said that some of his colleagues had been healthy before, “but they were quarantined in the same cabin with a crew member who was showing certain symptoms, such as a high temperature”. Later, everyone in the cabin had tested positive for the virus. After working aboard the Diamond Princess throughout its 14-day quarantine in Yokohama, Japan, I Wayan Sudiarta was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief over the weekend when he found that he had tested negative for COVID-19. The Feb. 24 records showed that 691 passengers and crew of the cruise ship had contracted the disease, which is caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that emerged in December 2019 in Wuhan, China.Although the 24-year-old felt lucky that he was not among the nine Indonesian colleagues who had contracted the virus, the negative test result did not allay the worries of Sudiarta and the 68 Indonesian crewmen who remain on the ship.

He was at Arsenal. I said to him, “You’re coming to the ball too much; you’ve got your back to play and you’re making it easy for defenders”.‘I told him to come short, run off the ball. I said, “Go and watch Marc Overmars,” and he didn’t know who Marc Overmars was. I was like, “You’re playing out wide for Arsenal, how can you not know Overmars?”‘ Rooney claims Van Gaal is the best tactician he’s played for in his career (Picture: Getty)Rooney says Louis van Gaal is ‘by far the best’ tactician he has ever played under but Sir Alex Ferguson was ‘streets ahead of everyone’ as an overall manager.

June 14, 2020 Wolf Administration Condemns Trump Administration Rule that Strips Health Care Rights of Americans Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Healthcare, Press Release Governor Tom Wolf and cabinet members of his health and human services agencies today condemned the Trump Administration’s final rule stripping Americans of their right to health care because of their sexual orientation and gender identity that was previously guaranteed under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).“This rule flies in the face of every policy and protection my administration has put in place,” Gov. Wolf said. “Changing an Affordable Care Act rule that includes provisions for non-discrimination based on sex to include only male and female genders is another attempt to dismantle the ACA and put our LGBTQ community’s well-being at greater risk by trying to delegitimize this vulnerable population. It is especially egregious to finalize a rule that could deny health care to anyone in the midst of a pandemic and on the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub mass shooting.”“In a time when our nation and the world are facing an unprecedented pandemic, it is unconscionable that the Trump Administration would make such significant changes to our health care system that put the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans at risk,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “These actions not only put the LGBTQ community at risk, they put our entire health care system in jeopardy. These continuous attacks on the rights of transgender Americans must stop. Gov. Wolf has shown that protecting the rights of all Pennsylvanians is essential to our continued success and prosperity — the federal government should do the same.”“The Trump administration’s consistent attempts to undermine the ACA are detrimental to the well-being of all Americans, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other factor,” said Commissioner Jessica Altman. “To release this rule on this day, the anniversary of lives lost at Pulse Nightclub, during Pride Month, makes their decision to rollback protections for the LGTBQ community all the more reprehensible. At a time when this country is so desperate for unity, this decision only sows more division. I, along with the entire Wolf administration, will continue to reject discrimination and defend the rights of all Pennsylvanians, no matter who they are or who they love.”“By ending specific non-discrimination requirements for health services, the Trump Administration is allowing for medical professionals to deny vital, life-saving services and could result in health care that is ineffective or inappropriate for LGBTQ and other vulnerable individuals. This will only exacerbate the health problems for the LGBTQ and other communities,” said Secretary Teresa Miller. “As our nation faces a pandemic that is affecting people of all ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds, we cannot create more barriers and inequitable access to medical care. It is our responsibility as public servants to lead in a way that uplifts and seeks to correct inequities among marginalized and underserved people. These attacks on human rights targeted towards transgender people are unacceptable and cruel, and we must do better.”“As a member of Governor Wolf’s LGBT Workgroup, and in collaboration with our many LGBTQ partners, aging services providers, and stakeholders, the Department of Aging has made its commitment to diversity, increased cultural competency, and inclusion a major priority,” said Department of Aging Secretary Robert Torres. “This rule is a shameful attempt to exclude a community that is already facing unique challenges and deserving of equal access to health care. Our department is proud to stand with the LGBTQ elders, and the entire LGBTQ community and advocate for protections they rightfully deserve.”Ver esta página en español. SHARE Email Facebook Twitter

Even Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was seen to offer words to Assaidi. “I didn’t hear what he said,” said the winger. “He’s a very big coach and he was also happy for me I think, maybe.” Maybe not, but Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers certainly would have been given Stoke’s victory allowed the Reds to move back above Chelsea into second in the table. Assaidi moved to Anfield in the summer of 2012 from Heerenveen but did not make a Premier League start in his first season. The 25-year-old remains hopeful he can have a future at Liverpool, saying: “I have two years more and we will see but I’m now at Stoke and I’ll do my best. “(Rodgers) texts me sometimes and I speak sometimes with him. I think the games that I got at Liverpool was not so much but the games I got I did well. If he gives me a chance then maybe I can show (what I can do).” Hughes has not yet looked into the possibility of keeping Assaidi permanently, and he said: “I think Oz probably still thinks he has a future at Liverpool. He’s very much their player but he’s doing very well for us and we’re pleased that we’ve been able to have him.” Mourinho was left frustrated by his side’s failure to take their chances, but he also has concerns at the other end of the pitch. It was the second successive game in which the Blues conceded three goals, and they have now let in more goals in the league than in the whole of Mourinho’s first season in charge in 2004/05. He said: “I don’t think it’s fair to compare players from different generations. They are completely different moments. “I think this team is a team that has to score goals. We are not a physical team, we are not a team with the conditions to defend against physical teams.” The 25-year-old Moroccan international’s day did not begin well when he was told by Hughes that after back-to-back starts he would have to settle for a place on the bench. He was given just six minutes to impress, but that proved more than enough, the winger collecting a ball from Stephen Ireland on the left, driving to the edge of the box and unleashing a ferocious drive into the top corner. It earned Stoke a 3-2 victory, their first league win over Chelsea in 38 years. Assaidi celebrated his first Barclays Premier League goal exuberantly, removing his shirt and sprinting to the dugout where he was swamped by team-mates. “I don’t know what I did after but I was very happy,” he said. “We needed this, and the way we played. We got the three points and everybody is very happy. This will give us confidence for the future.” Assaidi joined Stoke from Liverpool in the summer on a season-long loan but has been a peripheral figure so far, starting only four games in all competitions. He said: “For the minutes I’ve been given I think I did well. I’ve scored two times and I haven’t had so many games I think. “This week I got 90 minutes two times and I’m very happy for this. I wanted to start again but the coach made another decision. I showed that I can create something for the team. “The coach knows my quality I think because before I went on the pitch he told me, ‘Go and win us the game’. He knows what I can do. “I’m very happy for this confidence but I really want to start of course. I had to be patient until he gave me my opportunity, then I showed (what I can do).” Oussama Assaidi hopes he has proved a point to Stoke boss Mark Hughes and parent club Liverpool with his stunning winner against Chelsea.

A nearly $92 billion state budget was finalized Saturday, with Florida House and Senate negotiators reaching Gov. Ron DeSantis’ teacher pay goal.They also added $300 million to reserves in order to deal with the coronavirus.The House and Senate ended work on all other bills last Friday.A key number in the budget is $500 million for raising base teacher salaries to $47,500, which is the level DeSantis has been seeking.In terms of spending on coronavirus, Senate budget chair Rob Bradley says, “When the (governor’s) proposal was made, we did not have the situation we have in our state and in the country and the world. We make decisions based on the realities that are facing us.”Fedrick Ingram, president of the Florida Education Association, the state’s largest teachers union, opines that the the $47,500 salary level is an “aspirational goal,” based on the funding level.He adds that the increase is an “important down payment in what must be a multi-year investment.”With coronavirus threatening to reduce state tax collections as tourism and overall consumer spending drops, officials reduced spending on other programs to come up with the extra $300 million, bringing the state’s overall reserves to $3.8 billion.The state will also be receiving $27 million in federal aid to combat the virus.Lawmakers hope to publish the budget by Sunday night, starting the constitutionally required 72-hour waiting period before a final vote can be taken.A budget vote to end the 2020 legislative session will likely take place this Thursday.The budget is set to take effect July 1.
