Tips for a healthy, safer summer picnic

first_img Please enter your comment! From Florida Hospital Apopka  Summer’s here, so dust off the picnic basket! But before hitting the beach or your favorite park, here are tips from Sherri Flynt, registered/licensed dietitian, Florida Hospital Center for Nutritional Excellence, for packing a healthier picnic basket and ensuring that the only “bugs” joining you are ants.Tap into summer’s bounty. Take plenty of chopped veggies as a crunchy alternative to chips. Try broccoli slaw, tossed with a low-fat poppy seed dressing, instead of traditional slaw. Pack berries, watermelon slices and frozen grapes for a tasty treat on a hot day.Salad alternatives. Rethink mayonnaise-based salads. They’re higher in fat and calories and loved by foodborne illness-causing bacteria. Oil and vinegar dressings (less oil, more vinegar) not only cut back on fat, but the acid keeps food safer. Try out this light and refreshing English cucumber salad.Healthier indulgences for your sweet tooth. If fresh fruit doesn’t satisfy your picnic sweet tooth, bring bite-sized desserts. Angel food cake topped with fresh berries and a bit of light whipped cream, keep it on ice, is also a healthier option.Grill safely. Grilling is a picnic favorite. And grilling healthfully is important. To minimize the production of compounds that pose a cancer risk, marinate before grilling using thyme, sage, garlic, or rosemary. Because heat and fat are the real culprits, trim all visible fat, flip your meat, poultry, or fish often, and grill at a lower temperature (below 325º F). But don’t undercook. And, be sure to wash your hands! Handling raw meat is a sure fire way to spread bacteria to other foods you may touch.Keep all food safe. According to the Food and Drug Administration, summer months see an increase in foodborne illnesses. To keep those “bugs” from joining your picnic, keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Cold foods should be kept in a cooler and on ice throughout the picnic. Hot foods (like chicken or hot dogs) should be covered in foil to retain the heat. And don’t let any food sit out for very long.Stay well hydrated. While enjoying the outdoors, it’s easy to get dehydrated, especially children as they don’t want to stop their fun to grab a drink. Have plenty of cool water on hand and encourage everyone to drink liberally.Also, have a plan for being active. Whether it’s canoeing, playing a game of Frisbee football, or kicking a soccer ball, picnics are a great time for families to move together. 1 COMMENT June 24, 2018 at 12:45 pm Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear TAGSFlorida Hospital – ApopkaHealthy Picnic Previous articleThe Bezos-Buffett-Dimon health care venture: Eliminate the middlemenNext articleApopka’s Joel Berry II signed by the Los Angeles Lakers Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR I miss the Polar Cup van that had a polar bear logo on the side of the white van that used to come around playing music on our street years ago, selling cups of frozen lemonade, that was soooo good and refreshing. I never thought of eating frozen grapes. I would give frozen muscadine grapes a try though, as I love the taste of those grapes the best. I remember when I was a kid, how my mother lightened up on the heavy food for summer, and we would have a deli cold cut plate with cheese slices and various slices of cold cut meats, some potato salad on the side, and a bed of lettuce with a jello square on it, with fruit in it, or canned pears on top of the lettuce, with a drop of sour cream with shredded cheese on top on the pears ….something light to keep from heating up the kitchen, in the hot summer.

The two ‘atretic’ houses proposed, revolved around the idea of a redistribution of the plots along a row.

Save this picture!west elevationThe new plot has an incline approximately 5m in height and adjoins public streets on three of its four sides, in this way a house can make the most of lower part of the site by creating a garden and adapting it to the topography (casa tierra), the other, in the higher part opens up to the countryside enjoying a panoramic view of the mountains and orchards (casa cielo). Save this picture!© David FrutosCasa tierra takes the form of a plinth constructed entirely from ceramic pieces combined with coloured elements. Casa cielo is structurally comprised of unfinished concrete, supported by the other module in its lower part and finished in reflective glass. Save this picture!© David FrutosThe ceramic module aims to be something more than simply the facade of Casa tierra, it is constructed with the intention of forming the principle module of the project. It additionally lays out the diverse partitions of Casa tierra and Casa cielo and adds different degrees of transparency and light which is offered by the ceramic wine rack section made by the commercial brand ‘Cerámica Collado’. Save this picture!© David FrutosThe holes in the wine rack section close with circular tiles made from multicoloured crockery, constituting an enclosure that satisfies the functional necessities of a standard facade. However, in the rest of the zones, the bottle rack section is not covered forming a lattice that allows for views depending on the position of the viewer. This permits the existence of material continuity in the entire elevation, which integrates the lattices for the terraces and patios and the shutters, whose boards are made with the same wine rack section, into the standard facade. Therefore, we can see that the ceramic facade is composed of two distinct elements; the fist is the bottle rack section, of which the principle module of the two houses is comprised. The second is the series of circular tiles of distinct colours made by a local craftsman. These fill the holes in the wine rack section where the facade has been constructed as an enclosed space. They are distributed according to a fading pattern that places the colour green in the lower zone, like a continuation of the garden, fading to blue in the upper creating a harmony between the colours of the sky and the gaps in the lattice. Crockery tiles are used in the facade to subtly spell the names of each of the houses, cielo and tierra. Save this picture!© David FrutosThe design of both houses also adapted itself to the new volumetric distribution of the joint plots; Casa tierra offers a range of uses and court yards benefit of its excavated condition in the locale, Casa cielo is set up as a leisure space thanks to the panoramic views of the countryside surrounding it. Each house is accessed via an adjacent road, Casa tierra from AV/ Region de Murcia and Casa cielo from the pedestrian pathway at the rear of the plots.Save this picture!cielo house ground floor planBoth houses make the most the setbacks brought about by regulations, in the form of how the buildings must be, for example the type of roofs that can be used, which allowed for the construction of green terraces which can be used by each of the houses.Save this picture!tierra house ground floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessStay Down Champion, Stay Down / SPORTSArticlesBSA Headquarters / Höweler + Yoon ArchitectureArticles Share Architects: XPIRAL Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/103927/torreaguera-atresados-xpiral Clipboard Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/103927/torreaguera-atresados-xpiral Clipboard Year:  Save this picture!© David Frutos+ 33 Sharelast_img read more

When the homeowners purchased their 1959 house, its humble beginnings as a ranch house was buried beneath layers of ad hoc changes over the years. Previous owners tried to transform the midcentury ranch house into something it wasn’t and filled the backyard with a number of bulky structures that didn’t fit the needs of the new homeowners.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiAfter a lifetime of remodeling, the Northwest Contemporary home deserved a holistic revitalization to honor its original spirit and make it suitable for contemporary living. SHED Architecture & Design was hired to undo the layers and restore the home to its original character using a cohesive approach and timeless materials. The primary goal was for the design work to live within the existing volume and create a more integrated result that bridges the past and future.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiThe compartmentalized floor plan was opened up, connections between spaces were enhanced, and the bathrooms were reworked to simplify and improve functionality. SHED came up with a material language that was consistent with the original house; stone chimney, fir decking, and skylights to amplify natural light. The architects added dark brick and concrete flooring into the mix to align with the original palette, while providing a timeless and durable aesthetic for the future.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiSave this picture!New Floor PlanSave this picture!© Rafael SoldiThe homeowners wanted a central kitchen gathering space that was oriented towards the deck and yard. SHED inserted an oversized kitchen island that takes a commanding position in the space, while providing ample room to cook, eat, and socialize. The interior and exterior spaces were linked together via large sliding doors that open up to the expansive deck and firepit zone on the lower patio.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiBy removing the old structures in the backyard, SHED as able to reallocate spaces so the house opens up to the yard in a more direct way. Outdoor living spaces carefully extend their way through the yard among mature trees and are further established by concrete walls to provide necessary structure and privacy. Expressed aggregate concrete tiles serve as the main interior flooring, echoing a similar look and feel to the exposed aggregate concrete pavers seen in the new yardscape. The paths and steps gently engage with the natural landscaping, gradually connecting the home to a series of private outdoor spaces around the property.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiProject gallerySee allShow lessDongsi 5Lmeet / DAGA ArchitectsSelected ProjectsTroon Modern Residence / Kendle Design CollaborativeSelected Projects Share United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/914376/madison-park-ranch-house-shed-architecture-and-design Clipboard Landscape: Photographs:  Rafael Soldi Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Madison Park Ranch House / SHED Architecture & Design CopyHouses, Renovation•Seattle, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/914376/madison-park-ranch-house-shed-architecture-and-design Clipboard Save this picture!© Rafael Soldi+ 30Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projectscenter_img 2018 SHED Architecture & Design ArchDaily Photographs Architects: SHED Architecture & Design Year Completion year of this architecture project Manufacturers: C.R.

Therefore, we decided to dismantle the building west side (about 1/4 of the whole) leaving behind the “framework and roof”.Save this picture!© Nao TakahashiThe Japanese roof tiles of this house were quite good, and we felt that the essence of the tiles was effective on the gable-end side. As a result, a semi-outdoor space is created, and by applying gravel to the inside of the foundation, it becomes a rock garden with a mysterious texture.Save this picture!© Nao TakahashiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Nao TakahashiFurthermore, RC walls were used at the boundary between the rock garden and the interior space.

Carter Stadium Carolina Olivares printThe women’s tennis team competed in its first fall tournament of the season at the HEB Invite in Waco, Texas, Oct. 6-8.Several players experienced the intensity of Division I tennis for the first time. First year players Elizabeth Tedford and Meredith Roberts each made the round of 16 in singles and made the semifinals in doubles as a duo. They defeated Tyler Junior College pair, Oceane Garibal and Millie Khoury 8-6 in Round 16. Moving on to the quarterfinals, they defeated Baylor duo, Angelina Shakhraichuk and Theresa Van Zyl, 8-4. Unfortunately, the Horned Frogs lost to Tyler duo Tamara Arnold and Kalani Soli 8-5 in the Semifinals.Meredith Roberts at the Big 5 Challenge on Sept. 24 (Photo by Ray Carlin).Although Roberts lost two close singles matches against SEC players, Head Coach Lee Taylor Walker said it would ultimately improve the her game later on.“It was good for her to experience that and learn what it’s going to take,” Walker said. “It’s more important we learn from them now and keep improving so we can handle that level better in the spring,” First year player Stevie Kennedy also lost to Van Zyl in her first round singles match, learning what it is going to take to play at the Division I level. The Horned Frogs look to bounce back from their losses and will host the ITA Texas Regional Championships Oct. 13-17 at the Baynard H. Friedman Tennis Center.

Congolese authorities free Burundian radio technician

first_img Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder Reporters Without Borders rallies former hostages in Paris, following the kidnapping of journalist Olivier Dubois. October 3, 2016 – Updated on October 4, 2016 Congolese authorities free Burundian radio technician Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and its partner organisation, Journaliste en Danger (JED) are pleased to report that Egide Mwemero, a Burundian radio technician who was held for nearly a year in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is now with his family in the Rwandan capital of Kigali after the Congolese authorities quietly released him from Kinshasa’s Makala prison on 27 September.

Charged initially with spying and then with “inciting the military to commit illegal acts,” he was held for seven months in a military intelligence detention centre in Kinshasa before being transferred to Ndoloto military prison and finally to Kinshasa’s Makala prison. As there was no evidence against him to justify his being tried under the military penal code or by a military court, a civilian judge finally examined the case in July 2016 and concluded that there were no grounds for bringing him to trial. He nonetheless remained in detention for almost three more months because civilian prosecutors sent the case back the military judicial system, in complete violation of procedure. Fortunately, the military judges refused to take the case again, leaving the civilian judicial authorities with no option but to free him. Kahn-Sriber added: “We acknowledge the military tribunals’ belated honesty in refusing to take back the case after civilian judges found no evidence against Mwemero, and we urge the Congolese judicial system to refuse to be the tool of political considerations.” Mwemero has told RSF he is relieved to be reunited with his family and is now due to undergo a series of medical checks, having been mistreated while in detention. “I have a lot of courage and a lot of strength, contrary to what they thought when they arrested me,” he said. “I am not discouraged and I will not give up.” Many observers regarded the DRC’s persecution of an ordinary radio technician as a sign of the importance of the political factors at play in the case. His discreet release was designed to end what had become a nuisance for the Congolese authorities because of pressure from national and international civil society groups. The DRC is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. Burundi is ranked 156th, having fallen 11 places in the space of a year. to go further June 7, 2021 Find out more Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria Organisation last_img read more

60th session of the UN Commission on Human Rights: the farce continues

first_img The United Nations Commission on Human Rights has lost all credibility since Libya was appointed to chair it last year. Reporters Without Borders has launched a media campaign to expose this farce. RSF_en News March 15, 2004 – Updated on January 25, 2016 60th session of the UN Commission on Human Rights: the farce continues Organisation The United Nations Commission on Human Rights, which has lost all credibility since Libya was appointed to chair it last year, will hold its 60th session in Geneva from 15 March to 23 April.Twenty-five of its 53 member-countries have not even ratified all the conventions and agreements it is called on to enforce. It’s rather like asking thieves to sit in judgment over criminals.Reporters Without Borders has launched a media campaign to expose this farce. Worst offenders are Saudi Arabia, China, Cuba and Zimbabwe, says the organisation.Cuba and China are two biggest prisons in the world for journalists, Saudi Arabia is under severe censorship and the Zimbabwean government is doing all it can to stamp out the independent press. Yet all of them are members of the UN Human Rights Commission. They are the most striking examples of the absurd system where countries are both accusers and accused.Reporters Without Borders last year sent recommendations for an urgent and radical reform of the Commission to the United Nations and to several countries, suggesting that only states that had ratified all the international human rights treaties and conventions be allowed to sit on the Commission. It also called for the dropping of “no action” motions, which block any discussion of countries that extensively violate human rights.The 25 countries that have not ratified all human rights agreements are:Bahrain, Bhutan, China, Congo, Cuba, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mauritania, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sierra Leone, South Korea, Sudan, Swaziland, Uganda, United States, Zimbabwe.
