Blueberry Month

first_imgSummer means bountiful baskets of blue and red berries in fields and home gardens. Blueberries and strawberries are synonymous with backyard barbecues, vacations and pick-your-own adventures. More importantly, their high level of cancer-fighting antioxidants makes them exceptionally healthy.Antioxidants counteract the damage caused by free radicals, or molecules created by harmful environmental effects like smoking, sunlight and chemicals that damage healthy tissue cells. Antioxidants come in many different forms, like vitamins and phytochemicals, and are often found in fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products.Phytochemicals, or substances found in plant foods, and a number of vitamins, such as vitamin C, act as antioxidants in the body. Consuming antioxidant-rich foods decreases free-radical damage and lowers your risk of developing certain types of cancers and heart disease.There are hundreds of different phytochemicals. Different-colored fruits and vegetables contain different phytochemicals, the pigments that give flowers and foods their unique colors. By eating different-colored fruits and vegetables, you include a wide variety of healthy phytochemicals in your diet. They don’t contribute calories to your diet, but act as antioxidants in the body.Phytochemicals make strawberries red and blueberries blue. Anthocyanins are found in purple, deep blue and reddish-purple foods, such as blueberries, blackberries, cherries, red grapes, cranberries, bilberries and strawberries.Some vitamins are also antioxidants. Beta carotene (a form of vitamin A) and vitamins C and E act as antioxidants in the body. Strawberries have more vitamin C than most citrus fruits. Blueberries are also a great source of vitamin C and fiber. Originally called “star berries,” the bottom of the blueberry forms a perfect, five-pointed star. Harvest season for blueberries in Georgia runs from mid-April through July, and strawberry season is March through July. July is also National Blueberry Month. Blueberries are one of the few fruits native to North America, and Georgia ranks second in the nation in blueberry production. Whether you consume them in a parfait, smoothie or straight from the farm, enjoy blueberries and know that you are eating fresh, local, in-season fruit that improves your health.  For more information from the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension on nutrition, health and food safety, visit www.extension.uga.edu/publications.last_img read more

The Rainy Season in Haiti Has Already Caused Fatalities

first_img From the beginning of spring in March until October, at least one storm can be expected daily, according to him. A new catastrophe threatens Haitians following the earthquake that caused 222,500 deaths and left more than a million people homeless: the rainy season, which has already caused several fatalities and evacuations. The agricultural sector and the roads were severely damaged by the rains, according to the authorities, who reported landslides in several localities. Several neighborhoods were flooded in the city of Les Cayes (160 km south of Port-au-Prince), which was not affected by the 12 January earthquake, forcing dozens of people to take refuge on the roofs of their houses. By Dialogo March 03, 2010 This is a cool article. Thirteen people died Saturday as a result of flooding caused by strong rains in southwestern Haiti, according to preliminary reports. At least three people are believed to be missing, and another three thousand have been evacuated. The rainy season, which precedes the hurricane season that starts in June, usually begins around April in Haiti, but strong precipitation has already been falling in Port-au-Prince, raising concern. Haiti enjoys a “pure tropical” climate, Dennis Feltgen, of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, explained to AFP. last_img read more

I have nothing to say.”U.S. District Judge Leonard D.

Keane backed to be Ireland hit

first_img And Yorke, who played alongside Keane at Old Trafford and was later signed by the Irishman for Sunderland, is confident the no-nonsense former midfielder will prove a major success in the new role. Yorke said of the former Ireland engine room general: “I saw him as a manager at Sunderland, he did fantastically well getting promotion up to the Premier League. “Knowing the character for a number of years, I feel Roy Keane would be a far greater manager at international level. “I think it’s too much (as a club boss) because of the type of person he is, having to constantly relate to players, dealing with players on a daily basis, report to the board, watch reserve games, give young players contracts and deal with a whole lot of issues – I don’t feel Roy Keane is that type of person. “I feel at international level he has great presence, he has the respect from the players – all the attributes you need to be a manager at international level. “Also, you only get the players for two or three weeks, then you say, ‘There you go lads, I don’t need to see you for two or three months’.” Although Keane will be going in as O’Neill’s deputy, Yorke claims he has the ability to play a leading role on the world stage. “I do believe that he would be a far greater manager than he has been given credit for,” Yorke said. Keane is poised to become assistant to his fellow former Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill with Ireland. His appointment will end Keane’s near three-year exile from management and coaching, having been sacked by Ipswich in January 2011. Press Association The 42-year-old, who was speaking as an ambassador for his native Trinidad and Tobago at the World Travel Market in London, had nothing but praise for Keane, who has more recently joined Yorke in taking on media work. Yorke won the 1999 Champions League at Manchester United, playing in the final that Keane missed due to suspension. “There’s two sides – when you play and when you become a manager,” Yorke said. “In my years with him at Manchester United, as a player, he was sensational. Arguably one of the best I’ve come across – his leadership, his winning mentality, what he demands from the players on the football pitch, the aura he presents on the football pitch – there is nobody better in the game when it comes to that.” Dwight Yorke is convinced his former Manchester United team-mate Roy Keane can achieve far more on his return to international football than he managed in club management.last_img read more
