Missing Boater, Peter Cook, Faced Trial in South Carolina on Drug, Weapons Charges

first_imgCould father and son boaters have deliberately vanished off the coast of Florida? Peter Cook was facing drug and weapons charges in South Carolina when he disappeared on a boat along with his father and four dogs, after they departed Panama City headed for Vero Beach.The defense attorney for Cook, 56, of South Carolina, said his client is presumed dead, and had no reason to fake his death by disappearing in a newly purchased boat.Peter Cook bought the boat in late January, said Miller Marina general manager Mandy Warren. On the same day in South Carolina, an order modifying Cook’s bond conditions was filed in Berkeley County Circuit Court. The Berkeley County State Solicitor’s Office said it would not comment on ongoing trials.The U.S. Coast Guard Feb. 26 suspended its search for Peter and his father Gerald Cook, 81, of Vero Beach.The search began Feb. 19 after a family member contacted the agency saying the pair had not returned from Panama City with Peter’s newly-bought boat by their scheduled arrival date of Feb. 18.Coast Guard officials said they found no traces of the Cooks, their 52-foot vessel or their four dogs along their intended course from Panama City south through the Gulf and east on the Okeechobee Waterway then north to Vero Beach.Elisabeth Cook, 82, of Vero Beach, said her husband and son departed from Miller Marina in Panama City Feb. 13, and made an unexpected stop in Port St. Joe later that day.She said Gerald called to tell her they’d stopped roughly 40 miles south of Panama City, but didn’t tell her the reason for the unscheduled pause in their planned five-day-voyage.The only marina in Port St. Joe, and the only marina between Mexico Beach and Apalachicola capable of docking a boat that large, Captain’s Cove, said there were no records or sightings of the Cooks or their boat on Feb. 13.last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: PROTEIN – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Protein is a German word that is taken from the Greek word Proteios, meaning the first in.There is no question about it; protein is the most important macronutrient in your diet, but many people are confused as to how much protein they really need to consume.One question I get asked a lot, (and by a lot I mean A LOT!), is ‘how much protein should I take?’ This is usually asked by people looking to either build muscle or burn fat.The question in itself is a bit of an open-ended question, as there are a number of factors that you have to take into consideration before you can give a straight answer.If you listen to the media over the past few years, they would have you believe that over-consumption of protein will cause health issues such as cardio vascular problems and kidney problems. These claims are false and have been debunked by several studies in recent years.It is however recommended that if you have a pre-existing renal issue, you should monitor your protein intake. For people in good health, protein is safe.Not only is it safe, it is the one macronutrient that you shouldn’t be leaving out from your meals if your goals are fat loss or muscle gain.So: Why Protein?Protein is an important component of every cell in the body.Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues.You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals.Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and bloodProtein also has a high thermic effect. Protein requires 25-30% of the energy it provides just for digestion, absorption, and assimilation while carbs only require 6-8% and fat requires 2-3%.That means that eating protein can lead to a higher metabolic rate which means greater fat loss when dieting and less fat gain during phases of muscle gain.You are burning fat through eating alone.Protein also has a better satiety effect (the sense of being “full” or “satisfied” after a meal), compared to carbs and fats.You will feel fuller for longer and will be less likely to snack in between meals.Diets higher in protein have also been shown to lead to greater weight loss than low protein diets.So the question is just how much protein is enough?This will depend on a few of the things I mentioned to above.Are you training?What age are you?What are your goals? (Fat loss or muscle gain)If you are inactive, the RDA of 0.8g per kg of bodyweight is more than enough for you.For older adults this increases to 1g per kg of bodyweight.For active individuals, especially those involved in strength training regimens, studies have consistently shown optimal intake to be about 1.6 to 2.0 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight.For an alternative and a method that I personally use, set your protein at 1g per pound of GOAL BODY WEIGHT.This means that if you want to be a lean 90kg (200lbs) you would consume 200g of protein per day.If you are feeling a bit lost here and you don’t want to start lifting a calculator every time you eat a meal, I also use the Precision Nutrition method with clients and in my classes.You will use you hand as a measuring tool.For fat loss you simply have a palm sized portion of protein with every meal.For muscle gain you would have 2 palm sized portions with every meal.Your palm is like a tailor made portion controller for you each portion should be the thickness of your thumb.Protein is something that you should have in your diet.The benefits outweigh any negatives that you could think of and if you want improved body composition, protein is simply a must.#TrainSmartFor further information on Personal Training or to get a structured training program, please contact me through the link below.

Birdwatch Ireland appeals to Donegal garden owners to monitor sick birds

first_imgBirdwatch Ireland has appealed to Donegal people to record the number of sick birds they see in their gardens this winter.The appeal will be part of the group’s Irish Garden Bird Survey.It follows a worrying concern after one of Ireland’s most iconic native birds, the Greenfinch, fell to their lowest numbers ever last winter. The reason for the thousands of deaths was ‘finch trichomoniasis’ – a parasitic infection that kills infected birds.In the 1990’s and early 2000’s Greenfinches were recorded in around 90% of Irish gardens each winter, but their numbers since have plummeted and fewer than 60% of gardens had Greenfinches last winter.“The rapid decrease in Greenfinch numbers over the last 10 years has been extremely worrying, and last winter’s results suggest their decline hasn’t bottomed out yet,” said Brian Burke, who coordinates the survey for BirdWatch Ireland.“Thousands of people all over the country take part in the Irish Garden Bird Survey every winter, so we’re hoping to use the public’s help to get a better handle on where and when this infection is hitting birds over the winter. “As well as noting down the numbers of different bird species using their gardens each week, we need participants to tell us about any sick birds they see too.”The Birdwatch Ireland spokesperson revealed that the Trichomonas gallinae parasite poses no threat whatsoever to humans, nor indeed to any other mammals, including cats, dogs, horses, cattle and sheep.He added “It is strictly a bird disease and has been recorded in pigeon and bird of prey populations for a long time. It is even thought to have been a problem for the dinosaurs, from which modern bird ultimately evolved.“It ‘jumped’ to finches in Britain in 2007 and was first recorded in Ireland the following year. Since then it has caused huge declines in Greenfinches in many parts of northern Europe.”Brian Burke noted, “Finch species are the birds that are most likely to be affected by trichomoniasis. The symptoms that infected birds show include fluffed up feathers, difficulty swallowing food, sometimes with food stuck to their beaks, and an unusual reluctance to fly away when disturbed. “Nobody could have predicted that this parasite would start to impact our finch populations, but thankfully we had the Irish Garden Bird Survey in place before it happened, so we have the data to show just exactly how hard some species have been hit. We get a great response to the survey every winter, and this time around people can give added value to their records by letting us know about any sick birds they see.“Other finch species can be affected, most notably Chaffinches and Goldfinches, but their populations haven’t been impacted to the same degree. Chaffinch numbers did dip when the parasite first appeared, but their numbers have recovered,” according to Brian Burke. “Goldfinches have been doing well and trichomoniasis has done little to slow their growth. They’ve gone from being recorded in under 15% of gardens in the mid-1990’s to over 80% of gardens in recent years.”The free survey, now in its 31st year, is open to everyone in Ireland who wishes to take part, and the number of participants continues to grow each year.Birdwatch Ireland appeals to Donegal garden owners to monitor sick birds was last modified: November 27th, 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:BIdrwatch Irelandbirdsgardensicksurveylast_img read more

Chelsea ‘sloppy’ despite win at Norwich – Hiddink

first_imgBoss Guus Hiddink said Chelsea were “sloppy” at Norwich despite managing to maintain their excellent recent run with another win.The Blues went ahead through Kenedy’s goal after just 39 seconds and Diego Costa, who was in an offside position, made it 2-0.But the home side battled in the second half and Chelsea were forced to absorb pressure after Nathan Redmond pulled a goal back“We didn’t want to end up in a battle but they forced us into a battle,” said Hiddink, whose team remain unbeaten in the league since he took over.Kenedy scored his first Premier League goal“We were sloppy. We started very well and got a beautiful goal from Kenedy and we could have finished it off a little bit earlier. We were a little complacent.“We needed to finish the game off. In the end Norwich made it very difficult for us.”Chelsea defender Gary Cahill also admitted that the visitors had been pushed all the way.“It was horrible by the end. The last 15 to 20 minutes was tough,” Cahill said.“In first half we were in control. In the second, it was a totally different game. Credit to them. It feels good to dig in and grind out the result.”More reaction from Carrow Road to follow later.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Four Bay State Teams Compete for a Chance to Build Green

first_imgThe op-ed sections of most newspapers and online news sources have lately (and justifiably) been heavy with perspectives on health care reform and U.S. military commitments. But there also has been a steady undercurrent of commentary about conservation imperatives, renewable energy, sustainability, and opportunities in a green economy.One op-ed piece that caught our attention, “Home Green Home,” was published on Thursday by the Boston Globe. Written by Robert Culver, president and CEO of MassDevelopment, Massachusetts’ finance and development authority, the piece essentially highlighted the principal elements, and potential long-term economic benefits, of a competition announced last month in which four builder/developers are competing for the right to build moderately priced single-family and multifamily net-zero-energy homes on two sites in the town of Devens, about 35 miles northwest of Boston.The development teams have been asked to submit site plans, schematic designs, and financial information as part of their project proposals. Sometime in January, MassDevelopment will announce the two winning teams, which are expected to buy the land for their respective projects. The agency estimates that the smaller of the two parcels – about 26,000 sq. ft. – will accommodate as many as 12 multifamily units, while a 3.42-acre parcel will support eight single-family lots. Prices on the single-family homes are expected to range from $225,000 to $350,000.Shrinking the Mass. footprintMassachusetts is no stranger to energy conservation initiatives. Back in March, its office of Energy and Environmental Affairs announced that two state buildings would be constructed to energy efficiency standards outlined in a report prepared by the Zero Net Energy Buildings Task Force, a group of experts convened by Governor Deval Patrick.The task force’s recommendations also served as the basis for a new construction standard for state buildings that, the EEA says, “will be 30% better than current building code, and 10% to 15% better than the existing Massachusetts LEED Plus standard.”Relevant to residential construction, the Massachusetts Board of Building Regulations and Standards on May 12 approved an amendment to the statewide building code that allows municipalities to adopt stricter code requirements – more commonly known as “stretch” code – for both residential and commercial buildings. Massachusetts law doesn’t allow municipalities to diverge from the state code, so approval of the stretch code was intended to add a greener option to the state’s minimum energy efficiency requirements, assuming city officials can generate enough support locally to adopt it.A contest veteranThe four teams competing for a chance to build in Deven were selected from nine contenders that responded to a call for proposals in April. They are Evergreen Village Collaborative of Lexington, The Lane Companies of Framingham, Metric Construction Corporation of Boston, and Transformations Inc. of Townsend.Transformations, in fact, has already competed in an energy efficiency construction competition, the Zero Energy Challenge, which was sponsored by the state’s investor-owned electric utilities – National Grid, NSTAR, Unitil, and Western Mass Electric Company. The Challenge featured five Massachusetts builders whose mandate was to construct ultra-efficient market-rate and affordable homes. The Zero Energy Challenge results were announced at the end of June, and Transformations took second place. The company’s owner, R. Carter Scott, worked with a price cap of $195,000 to construct a 1,232-sq.-ft. three-bedroom home in Townsend that includes R-42 walls, R-64 ceilings, triple-pane windows, and a 5.7 kW PV system. The house earned a HERS Index score of –2.30.last_img read more
