Lavis dune nutritionniste sur lhuile de palme

September 20, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgL’avis d’une nutritionniste sur l’huile de palmeL’huile de palme. La presse évoque régulièrement ses impacts négatifs sur la santé et sur l’environnement. Problème : aujourd’hui, difficile de savoir quoi lire, et surtout qui croire sur le sujet. Isabelle Rigaud-Mallet, nutritionniste pour l’agence Prunelle, a aidé Maxisciences à faire le point. Maxisciences : Pouvez-nous nous rappeler brièvement ce qu’est exactement l’huile de palme ?Isabelle Rigaud-Mallet : “C’est une huile végétale naturelle, issue d’un palmier spécifique (le palmier à huile Elaeis guineensis, ndlr). Elle est plus riche en acide gras saturés que les autres huiles végétales. Ces acides gras sont souvent qualifiés de mauvais car ils s’accumulent dans les artères et favorisent le mauvais cholestérol”.M : Pourquoi alors continuer à l’utiliser ?IRM : “Il faut remettre les choses à leur place : l’huile de palme contient 50% d’acides gras saturés, le beurre, 60%. Consommée en quantités raisonnables, ce n’est pas un produit “mauvais”. D’un point de vue technologique, elle est intéressante pour les industriels de par sa consistance. Les huiles riches en acides gras saturés sont fermes à température ambiante, ainsi l’huile de palme n’est pas aussi liquide que l’huile d’olive ou de colza. Elle est en quelque sorte “moelleuse”, et se rapproche de la margarine quand on la fouette. Elle est donc utile pour structurer certains aliments. L’explication est également économique, car cette huile est moins chère que le beurre ou d’autres matières grasses solides”.M : Que faut-il alors penser des études recommandant de l’éviter ?IRM : “L’étude menée par Findus dont on a beaucoup parlé dernièrement a été menée sur un échantillon peu représentatif de la population, et évoque une consommation moyenne individuelle de 57 grammes d’huile de palme par mois, soit 1,9 gramme par jour, c’est-à-dire moins d’une demi cuillère à café ! Selon les recommandations sanitaires, on peut consommer jusqu’à 18 grammes d’acides gras saturés par jour. Encore une fois, il faut relativiser.”M : Ne pourrait-on pas la remplacer par une autre huile ? IRM : “On peut avoir recours au procédé d’hydrogénation, qui permet de saturer une huile comme celle de colza par exemple. Mais pourquoi ne pas privilégier une huile naturellement saturée, plutôt que manipuler et dénaturer un autre produit ? Se pose aussi le problème du goût, dont me faisait encore part il y a peu un industriel. Il essaie de remplacer l’huile de palme par un autre produit, mais n’y arrive pas car ses gâteaux n’ont plus le même goût et s’effritent. L’huile de palme n’est certes pas la meilleure des huiles, mais pour l’instant, on ne peut s’en passer.”M : Si l’huile de palme ne peut être évitée, ne devrait-on pas au moins signaler sa présence pour pouvoir l’éviter ?IRM : “Un étiquetage plus clair serait en effet préférable, par souci de transparence envers le consommateur. Il est également important d’expliquer les choses, de donner des recommandations pour éduquer le consommateur, en lui apprenant à choisir ses huiles. Et il n’est pas nécessaire pour cela de lui faire “craindre” l’une d’entre elles”.À lire aussiBaccalauréat, l’alimentation à la rescousse !M : Globalement, quelles huiles et matières grasses faut-il privilégier ?IRM : “Au global, il faut préférer les huiles végétales et les varier. Chaque huile apporte des acides gras essentiels : oméga 6 avec le tournesol, oméga 3 avec le soja, le colza et la noix. L’huile d’olive apporte quant à elle des acides gras mono-insaturés du régime méditerranéen. L’important, c’est d’éduquer des consommateurs souvent perdus, afin de leur permettre de faire eux-mêmes des choix judicieux”.

Vancouver man sentenced to 4 years in child porn case

September 19, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgA 46-year-old Vancouver man was sentenced Wednesday in Clark County Superior Court to nearly four years in prison for possessing child pornography.Judge Robert Lewis handed down a 46-month sentence for Nathan Dwight Burleigh on three counts of first-degree possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.Burleigh entered guilty pleas to the three counts as part of a plea agreement. He originally faced 20 child porn-related charges.According to a probable cause affidavit, an investigator assigned to the Vancouver Police Department’s Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit began tracking an IP, or internet protocol, address in Clark County in March.Over the course of the month, the investigator downloaded more than 300 files of suspected child pornography from the person associated with the unique computer address, the affidavit says.The investigator then obtained a search warrant to track the source of the child pornography to an address at Northeast 155th Circle — a home Burleigh has shared with his wife for nine years, according to court records.When officers showed up on Burleigh’s doorstep, he agreed to talk to them and allegedly admitted to downloading and possessing child pornography.Burleigh is required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.last_img read more

Investors cheer Argentinas swift offer to holdouts

September 5, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgInvestors on Saturday praised the speed with which new Argentine President Mauricio Macri made a cash offer to holders of defaulted bonds aimed at ending a long and bitter dispute that has strangled government finances.A financial markets pariah since defaulting on a record $100 billion in 2002, Argentina proposed on Friday a $6.5 billion payment to settle the legal battle and said two of the leading six “holdouts” in the case had already accepted the discounted terms.”We’re very encouraged by the pace with which Argentina is finally resolving the outstanding disputes with all of its holdouts,” said Shahriar Shahida, co-chief investment officer at New York-based Constellation Capital Management, which holds Argentine securities.”We’re hopeful this government will have a much more conciliatory relationship with all of its creditors,” Shahida said.As Macri sought to woo multinational chief executives gathered at the World Economic Forum in Davos last month, the centre-right leader told Reuters he wanted a “fair agreement” with the bondholders early this year.Finance Minister Alfonso Prat-Gay said negotiations were continuing with creditors still pushing for an improved deal. They include billionaire Paul Singer’s Elliott Management and Aurelius Capital Management.”There might be a chance that in the next few days they come on board,” Prat-Gay told Radio Mitre. “They’re looking at the offer. They’ve been getting closer to our position.”Macri’s pursuit of a swift settlement contrasts with the defiant position of his Leftist predecessor, Cristina Fernandez, who refused to offer better terms than the steep writedown accepted by most creditors in earlier bond restructurings.She labelled the holdout investors “vultures”.Macri needs a quick settlement to restore foreign investors’ battered confidence and return Argentina to global debt markets. Foreign credit is sorely needed to bolster Argentina’s thin central bank reserves and finance a gaping fiscal deficit.Obstacles to a final deal remain, however.Argentina’s offer represents a roughly 25 percent discount on what they claim, and debt strategists expect the remaining holdouts to demand better terms.Macri will also need approval from Congress, where he lacks a majority.If negotiations were to drag into the second half of the year, it might make it more difficult for Macri to make good on election promises to revive the spluttering economy.But for now, many investors are optimistic.”A deal will totally change the outlook. It will be extraordinary for this country,” Cristiano Rattazzi, president of Fiat Argentina, told newspaper La Nacion, welcoming the prospect of lower sovereign and corporate borrowing costs.Alejo Costa, chief strategist at Buenos Aires-based brokerage Puente, said he expected bond prices to stage a modest rally of up to one cent on the dollar on Monday following news of the offer. More sustained gains would come with a final deal, he said.”We expect a three to four points once Elliott and Aurelius accept, and five more points at least once Congress approves it,” Costa said.last_img read more

Saaho star Prabhas finally opens up about his Bollywood debut with Karan

September 5, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgPrabhas with Karan Johar.PR HandoutLast year, there were rumours about Prabhas and Karan Johar’s ugly fallout that had created a lot of noise in the industry. It was being said that Prabhas had rejected KJo’s film offer and had even demaded Rs 30 crore as remuneration which created a rift between the two. However, Prabhas had refuted the rumors and the alleged matter was put to rest. And now that Prabhas is slowly and steadily entering in Bollywood while promoting his upcoming film Saaho, the Telugu star had finally expressed his desire to work with Karan Johar in a film.Speaking about his long association with Karan Johar, Prabhas said that she shares a good rapport with the filmmaker and was thankful for his immense support to Baahubali as it performed well in the Northern belt.”He was there when Baahubali became ‘The Baahubali’ and it was him who gave the caption India’s biggest film. He was there and it was great to support for us and because of his support Baahubali did big in North…the whole team of Baahubali always respects him because of what he did for us…Even in South everybody was excited that Karan Johar was presenting the film. We know each other and we speak and definitely, we will do a good film together,” Prabhas was quoted as saying by Pinkvilla during a recent interaction.Prabhas further said that if Saaho, which has been shot in three languages – Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu – simultaneously, works out, he would like to pan-India films. He also revealed that he had been getting a lot of offers from Bollywood and Tamil film industry and would not hesitate to act in regional films as well.Saaho is a high octane action thriller which is directed by Sujeeth and is all set to hit the theatres on August 30. Starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead, the movie has an ensemble cast of Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay, Murali Sharma, amongst others.last_img read more

Studies Show High Obesity Rates Among Black Children

September 1, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgSeptember opens with both an annual observation of National Childhood Obesity Month, as well as an urgent call by healthcare professionals across the nation to reduce the increase of overweight and obese Black children – which are at critically high numbers.Some data, including that offered by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Trust of America’s Health, cite both an overall increase in overweight and obesity rates among Black children and faster and earlier rates of severe weight increases.From 1999 to 2012, for instance, 35.1 percent of Black children ages 2 to 19 were overweight, and another 20.2 percent diagnosed as obese. Equally troubling, while those in lower income brackets, with less access to affordable and nutritious foods were seen as examples of gaining weight, additional factors, including emotional upset, stress and physical trauma, are only now being assessed as contributing factors.Alison L. Miller, author of Early Life Stress and Childhood Obesity Risk, a study funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, reported early life stressors, including chronic poverty and adverse childhood experiences such as abuse or domestic violence exposure, are associated with obesity in adolescents and children.“Early life stress can have a powerful influence on the developing child. Overstimulation of biological stress responses can have profound negative effects on structure and function of the brain and other biological systems, which are developing rapidly in the early years,” Miller said in the report. “In addition to changes in biological systems, stress exposure in early life can affect children’s dietary, physical activity, and other health behaviors, increasing their risk of overweight and obesity.”Black families have earned $1 for every $2 earned by White families for the past 30 years, said Miller, with more than 38 percent of Black children under the age 18 and 42.7 percent of children under the age five living below the poverty line. An additional one in four Black-families are food insecure (not having consistent access to adequate food due to lack of money or other resources), compared with 11 percent of White households.Ward 8 resident Doris Alsobrooks, a caregiver to two grandchildren, said she believes the data on stress could be extremely helpful in lowering the weight and raising the confidence of overweight children. She said Ward 7 and 8 carry the highest numbers of obesity, acknowledging that food deserts and lack of exercise are only part of the problem.“I feed the grandchildren the same as I did my children, yet all of them could be considered overweight,” Alsobrooks told the AFRO. “I believe that the emotional stress they feel living with me instead of their parents, and feeling disconnected or depressed about their father being incarcerated and their mother not being around.”The D.C. Department of Health documented that obesity East of the Anacostia river topped 72 percent among residents. This area is home to many marketing campaigns pushing high-calorie, low-nutrition foods and beverages on billboards and other forms of outdoor advertisements. Alsobrooks said the enticement for quick, cheap, and emotionally-comforting foods play a major factor.“We have to look at our kids’ overeating or gaining weight as emotional, as well as not having access or money to purchase good food,” Alsobrooks told the AFRO. “The problem is that by not addressing the root causes of weight gain sooner, it becomes really tough to get a fix later.”last_img read more

China Airlines picks up TransAsias routes after airline ceases operations

first_img Travelweek Group Posted by China Airlines picks up TransAsia’s routes after airline ceases operations Tags: TransAsia Airways TAIPEI — China Airlines says it will temporarily take over TransAsia Airways’ routes starting Dec. 1 after the Taiwanese airline abruptly ceased operations earlier this week.On Nov. 22 TransAsia Airways’ board members agreed to dissolve the company and halt all flights. The carrier couldn’t bring its business back to previous levels after two plane crashes in three years. The airline ran up losses of more than NT$2.2 billion (about Cdn$93 million) in the first three quarters of 2016 “and did not see optimistic prospects”.“It was a painful decision to dissolve the company,” said Board Chairman Vincent Lin. “We kept trying to find domestic and international professional bodies, partners, or even a new operational team to help TransAsia. It’s a pity that the hope was not fulfilled.”“We choose to dissolve the airline at this point of time because the company still has more asset than liability, so we’re capable of providing necessary protection to the interests of passengers, employees and partners,” said Lin. “Before exiting Taiwan’s civil aviation industry, the 65-year-old airline will do everything we could to shoulder our last responsibilities.” TransAsia has formed an emergency task force to deal with issues related to passenger refunds, employee layoffs, debt clearance and shareholder interests.More news:  Can you guess the top Instagrammed wedding locations in the world?China Airlines is expected to take over virtually all over TransAsia’s domestic and international routes at the beginning of next month.center_img Share Friday, November 25, 2016 << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

While Stanton bigpictured the Cardinals recent o

August 11, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgWhile Stanton big-pictured the Cardinals’ recent offensive struggles through an 0-2 preseason — especially with the first team — he was also referring to his own.Here in the preseason, Stanton has completed just 4-of-13 passes for 74 yards with two interceptions and one sack; certainly not the type of production once would expect from a player entering his 10th season in the league.“I don’t really have any concern,” head coach Bruce Arians said, adding Stanton’s stat line is a result of mechanical issues. “It’s not like it happens every day. It happened a couple of times in the ballgame. It’s happened a couple of times in practice. It’s a pattern of sliding up (in the pocket), dropping your shoulder and the ball is going too high. “You’ve got to throw the ball to second base, not center field. It’s just a matter of repetitive drill work.”Stanton has played seven series totaling 30 snaps in the preseason, and it was with him under center when the Cardinals scored their one and only touchdown, a drive highlighted by a 32-yard pass to tight end Troy Niklas against Oakland.Still, what Stanton and others remember are the two interceptions.“The first one, thinking back to the Raiders game, I had no business trying to throw that ball. I tried to fit it into to J.B. (Jaron Brown). I’ve got a comfort level with J.B. because I’ve been working with him now for four years,” he said. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton passes during the first half of a preseason NFL football game against the San Diego Chargers, Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, in San Diego. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelocenter_img “The second interception in that game (in San Diego), I was thinking about trying to take the diagonal route or a flat route right to Jermaine (Gresham). The safety dropped in and I was thinking about trying to take that and then was just foolishly trying to come all the way back across the field and throw a bang-post that I didn’t really see and didn’t do it. That’s what B.A. was talking about. Got my body in a bad position to try and make a throw and unfortunately, it sailed on me.”Again, mistakes that are all easily correctable.For Stanton, the preseason isn’t about stats, individual or team. It’s about knocking off the rust and finding a comfort level with a game you haven’t played in more than seven month, at least against a different-colored uniform.Stanton and the Cardinals visit Houston on Sunday, providing another opportunity to get ready for the regular season.“You get a false sense of security sometimes when you’re out there in training camp because you’re not getting hit, so that’s why, I think, it’s important for us as quarterbacks to get hit a little bit, feel that, get that sense and get that comfort level back,” he said. “I think that was definitely accomplished last week. I did some things where I was seeing the field a lot better and just felt more comfortable walking away from that game last week.” Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact GLENDALE, Ariz. – A quick history lesson from Arizona Cardinals quarterback and professor Drew Stanton.“I was in Detroit when we went 4-0 in the preseason and proceeded to go 0-16 in the regular season,” he said, referring to 2008, his second year in the NFL.In other words, according to Stanton, let’s not draw huge conclusions on games that don’t count in the standings.“The preseason is great, don’t get me wrong, it helps you build confidence and you work on different things,” he continued. “I think sometimes people get caught up in the records, and you want to win football games. Any time you step out on the field you want to put your best foot forward, but there’s also things we’re trying to accomplish, little areas that might not be visible that we’re getting better at and trying to get better communication in.”last_img read more

first_img GLENDALE, Ariz. — Drew Stanton breathed a heavy sigh. Evan Boehm declined to comment despite an active history on the topic. Tyvon Branch walked away for fear he’d say something he regretted.“I think I’m going to stay away from that one,” Branch said. “I don’t have too many nice things to say.”Saturday’s events in Charlottesville, Va., have been discussed within the confines of the Cardinals locker room. There was universal disgust for the unbridled racism on display by white supremacist marchers, sorrow for the three people who died, and a collective shake of the head that such events are still taking place in America. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “In 2017, you wouldn’t think that you’d be seeing these types of things but at the end of the day, the way I look at it is it’s an eye opener for people,” safety Antoine Bethea said. “It’s just tough to wrap your head around it, but you need to pull that lid back because there’s a lot of people that really didn’t think racism existed. Now that you’re seeing this and seeing it on camera, this is something that needs to be said. Now that’s it’s out, what are we going to do?”Linebacker Karlos Dansby believes he has greater insight on the issue because of his upbringing and history with racism.“I’m from Alabama,” he said. “There’s a lot of stuff that took place in Birmingham with the 16th Street (Baptist Church) bombings. There’s a lot of things that I’ve been able to overcome that people don’t even know.“We’ve got a lot of work to do as people. It was definitely a setback and it’s sad to see something like that take place; very disturbing. It’s sad that we’re still living like that. At some point, we’re going to have to get over it.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories 23 Comments   Share   President Donald Trump, who will be in town Tuesday for a campaign-style rally, has come under severe and widespread criticism for his handling of, and comments on, the topic. Dansby and Bethea are among those critics.“First of all, you’ve got to know the history before you even speak on it — what really took place in the United States,” Dansby said. “He’s been alive for a lot longer than I have but his awareness and his knowledge of the history is very minute. For him to speak on the things and topics he was speaking on, he wasn’t prepared.”Bethea didn’t like the message Trump delivered.“For somebody to be the leader of a free nation, in my eyes, I don’t think that’s the right narrative you should put out,” Bethea added. “I’m not a big political guy but at the end of the day we all have morals, we all are grown folks that know right from wrong. We should be able to speak out on that regardless of what religion you are, if you’re a liberal or whatever the case may be.“Right is right. Wrong is wrong.”Stanton said the team isn’t thinking much about Trump’s visit because it falls during training camp, but he was at a loss for how to ease the racial tensions apparent in the nation.

Black, white, regardless,” he said. “If you’re silent about it, you’re for it, so I think it’s a time for people to speak out and the people who are against racism have got to come together.”Follow Craig Morgan on Twitterlast_img read more

Business programme launched for unemployed female university graduates

August 9, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgServices firm Ernst & Young Cyprus and the International Association for the Promotion of Women of Europe (Aipfe) are launching the programme ‘Women Fit for Business Cyprus’, a scholarship programme for unemployed female university graduates.WF4B is geared towards unemployed female university graduates under the age of 35.A joint press release said this collaboration aspired to empower, motivate and connect 12 participants through practical training and soft skills that would assist them in their search for employment.Twelve successful candidates will be selected to embark on a 60-hour, nine-month course, which entails training, mentoring and networking. Training will be conducted in English. The programme, which will commence in April and run through December 2017, will cover a wide range of topics, including personal profiling and skills assessment, job search skills, professional development workshops, empowerment through centred leadership, internships and more.The launching of WF4B coincides with International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8. Ernst & Young (EY) is the campaign sponsor of the IWD global theme, which this year is #BeBoldForChange.“According to the World Economic Forum Global Gender Gap Report 2016, it will take until 2186 for women to achieve gender parity in the workplace, a notable step back from the previous year’s projections. That is 169 years from now!” said Stavros from the services firm.Pantzaris said EY intended to lead in accelerating the rate of change towards gender parity as women’s advancement and leadership were central to business performance and economic prosperity.“In fact, recent EY studies show that companies with at least 30 per cent female leaders are more successful at achieving their organisation’s goals,” he said.Interested candidates for participation in WF4B may send their CV along with contact details of two referees, as well as a letter of interest detailing the reasons they wish to apply for the programme and the professional benefits that can be accrued through the attainment of practical training and soft skills.All applications must be in English and should be sent via email to aipfewomenofeurope@gmail.com by March 19, 2017. Applicants in temporary/part-time employment, part-time education, and/or professional courses will be considered on merit.  You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?FigLeaf Beta AppUndoFigLeaf Beta AppFigLeaf brings You 3 Easy Steps to Privacy on Your Terms…FigLeaf Beta AppUndoFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
