A-Rod Used Most Potent Drugs

first_imgIf Anthony Bosch were still in business today, bet on this much: His phone would be buzzing nonstop with athletes trying to order the Alex Rodriguez treatment.The self-taught doping guru whose testimony and records brought down Rodriguez sounded at times like a snake-oil salesman while detailing the down-to-the-minute regimen of performance-enhancing substances he delivered to the disgraced baseball star.Included were concoctions called “gummies” and “liquid soap,” ”pink cream,” ”blue cream” and even “PM cream” — each with varying doses of testosterone delivered in different ways throughout the day.Silly as those sound, don’t laugh. Elite athletes would gargle with antifreeze if they believed that would improve performance without tripping a positive test.And unlike the deer-antler spray and the other crackpot cures (holographic stickers, negatively charged water, underwear exposed to radio waves) that NFL linebacker Ray Lewis tried to explain away at last year’s Super Bowl, nearly all of what Bosch was providing A-Rod for $12,000 a month actually worked.Peel away the pseudo-science and Bosch’s bragging and what remained was “probably the most potent and sophisticated drug program developed for an athlete that we’ve ever seen,” U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart said.“No one who cares about clean sports likes to hear it,” Tygart said in an interview with The Associated Press. “And don’t just take my word for it. Look at the findings of an independent arbitrator who saw all the evidence, sat through the testimony and laid the whole conspiracy out.”Tygart said Bosch’s regimen included dozens of blood tests to see how the drugs were metabolizing and which doses to use when. It included peptides and female fertility drugs to supplement testosterone, human growth hormone and an insulin-like growth factor.“At the end of the day,” Tygart added, “this was a potent cocktail of sophisticated PEDs stacked together to deliver power, aid recovery, avoid detection and create a home run champion.”Added Dr. Gary Wadler, past chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned substance committee, “It was illegal from start to finish and not all of it was scientific, but let’s be honest — this guy Bosch knew an awful lot of what he was talking about.”Tygart takes some consolation in knowing that improvements to MLB’s drug-testing program make it unlikely a player could avoid detection employing the same regimen today. What troubles him, though, is that much of the discussion in the wake of Bosch’s “60 Minutes” TV interview has focused on those substances with catchy nicknames like “gummies” and “pink food,” but actually did little to improve performance.Instead, Tygart said the real threat was the sophisticated and comprehensive knowledge about a doping regimen that Bosch — who was not a licensed physician — was able to acquire and deploy.Bosch faces potential charges stemming from the investigation into his Biogenesis clinic in south Florida.Tygart referred specifically to an exchange in which Rodriguez told Bosch he had an important game coming up and asked whether he should take “gummies” — a lozenge dosed with testosterone — at 10:45 a.m. in case he wound up being required to take a drug test postgame. Bosch replied “10:30.”“Look, no one can say with that much certainty how long the window (to avoid detection) would be open,” Tygart said. “And most people know that tiny dose, even fast-acting testosterone, won’t provide much of a boost. But look at it as part of an overall (PED) program, while in-season testing is taking place. It’s more like maintenance; it’s going to be hard to find, plus it makes the other drugs you’re using more effective. …“Another point that may have gotten missed,” Tygart added, “is that insiders like Bosch want to give the perception they know. It’s part of the pitch, how you market to pro athletes. So saying 10:45 instead of 10:30 makes the athlete think, ‘Hey, this guy really knows his stuff.’”In Bosch’s case, that was largely true. So much so that anti-doping experts like Tygart and Wadler have broadened the scope of their investigations to include many of the same tactics law enforcement agencies use to pursue suppliers of a wide range of illegal drugs.“How many guys will take (Bosch’s) protocols and adopt them?” Wadler asked. “Plenty. Enhancing performance is tied up with a lot of things, legal and illegal, but the bottom line is always money. … When we look at this case, it’s troubling in a very real sense because most of the science passes muster.“What I’d stress is not the part about it being good science, but that it’s illicit science,” he said finally. “And quite possibly, dangerous at some level, too.”(Jim Litke, AP Sports Columnist)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Review: Clyde May’s Slammin’ Alabama Bourbon

first_imgOpen up almost any book about whiskey in America and you’re bound to find at least a few tales of moonshiners who worked hard to create a quality product while constantly trying to evade the law.Some moonshiners were successful, hiding their stills deep in the mountains or woods. Some weren’t so lucky. Clyde May, an Alabama moonshiner who was active from around the 1950s through the 1980s, was not one of the lucky ones. He ended up serving time for moonshining.This is the story that Clyde May’s Straight Bourbon Whiskey starts with—a moonshiner whose motto was “It’s better to break a few laws than cut a few corners.” In his time, May handcrafted his own stills and worked with the best ingredients he could find.Flash forward a few decades and, as a way of honoring his father’s memory, Kenny May created Clyde May’s whiskey, legally producing “Alabama Style” whiskey (a style created by his father and characterized by the addition of oven-dried apples to new barrels of bourbon).Their latest release, Straight Bourbon Whiskey, is not given the “Alabama Style” treatment. Instead, it abides by all the laws that govern bourbon.Nose: On the front, there are spice and vanilla notes. These are underpinned by oak and a hint of honeyed apples, despite there not being apples added to this whiskey.Palate:  Caramel sweetness blends with dryer oaky notes. These dryer notes make me think of the term “Old School,” though trying to explain that, I admit to being at a loss. Vanilla and a little bit of peanut brittle come through and are followed by a hint of baking spice.Finish: Medium length and fairly dry. Toffee and peanut notes mix with a little bit of black pepper.Final Thoughts: Getting back to the idea of story, it takes a little time staring at the highly-stylized (and very aesthetically appealing) bottle to see that the bourbon is not distilled in Alabama, but is instead sourced from Kentucky and bottled by the Conecuh Ridge distillery, which is located in Florida. The idea of it being Alabama whiskey is a fabrication, but one that works to continue the story of the man it is named after. If story does not impact your perception of a spirit and you are merely looking for a good-tasting bourbon (and one, because of its 46% ABV that would do well in a cocktail), then this is a good place to start if you’re looking for a bourbon that’s not “from” Kentucky.Clyde May’s Straight Bourbon Whiskey is 46% ABV and retails for around $50. 10 Best Whiskies for Irish Coffee Editors’ Recommendations Woodford Reserve Adds a Wheat Whiskey to the Distillery’s Core Range The Best Whiskey for Whipping Up a Whiskey Sour The Best New-School Kentucky Distilleries The Best Bottles of Whiskey You Can Buy For $20 or Less last_img read more

Chandrayaan2 lander separates 5 days to go for touchdown

first_imgBengaluru: In a key event of India’s second moon mission Chandrayaan-2, lander ‘Vikram’ was separated from the orbiter on Monday, five days ahead of its planned lunar touchdown, space agency ISRO announced. The separation of Vikram, which is set for soft landing on September 7 on the lunar surface along with rover ‘Pragyan’, was carried out at 1.15 pm and all systems of Chandrayaan-2 orbiter and the lander were healthy, it said. The separation was carried out successfully, an official of the city-headquartered Indian Space Research Organisation told PTI. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details The event came 42 days after the mission was launched onboard India’s most powerful rocket GSLV-MkIII-M1 from the spacesport of Sriharikota on July 22 and after a series of earth and lunar orbit manoeuvres, that took the spacecraft closer to the moon gradually. The fifth and final lunar orbit manoeuvre was carried out on Sunday. In a statement, ISRO on Monday said the lander, after the separation, was located in an orbit of 119 km perigee (closest point from moon) and 127 km apogee of the moons orbit. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter, which has a mission life of one year, continues to go around the Moon in its existing orbit. All the systems of Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter and Lander were healthy, ISRO said adding the health of the Orbiter and Lander was being monitored from the Mission Operations Complex at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) here with support from Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) antennas at nearby Bylalu. After the separation, two deorbit manoeuvres of Vikram Lander, to bring it further down, will be carried out on September 3 and September 4 to prepare for its landing in the south polar region of the moon, where no country has gone so far. The first of the manoeuvres was scheduled on Tuesday, between 08.45 am and 09.45 am Indian Standard Time,ISRO said. Vikram, named after the father of Indias space research programme Vikram A Sarabhai, is scheduled to land on the lunar surface near its south pole on September 7 at about 1.55 am. The exact landing site free of hazards would be decided based on pictures of the area captured and sent back by Vikram’s onboard camera. Rover Pragyaan, a six-wheeled robotic vehicle, will then roll out from the lander to carry out various tests on the lunar soil, especially detecting the presence of water and other mineral there, during its mission life of one Lunar day, equal to 14 Earth days. ISRO Chairman K Sivan has said the soft-landing on the Moon would be a “terrifying” moment as it is something the has not done before, whereas the Lunar Orbit Insertion manoeuvre was successfully carried out during the Chandrayaan-1 mission. The orbiter carries eight scientific payloads for mapping the lunar surface and study the exosphere (outer atmosphere) of the Moon while the lander carries three scientific payloads to conduct surface and subsurface science experiments. The rover carries two payloads to enhance the understanding of the lunar surface. ISRO has said the objective of the Rs 978-crore Chandrayaan-2 mission is to develop and demonstrate the key technologies for end-to-end lunar mission capability, including soft-landing and roving on the lunar surface. The mission aims at further expanding knowledge about the moon through a detailed study, leading to a better understanding of its origin and evolution. On successful completion, it will make India the fourth country after Russia, the US and China to pull off a soft landing on the moon.last_img read more

UK Appoints Independent Expert on Islamophobia

Rabat – Today, July 23, the UK government appointed an independent advisor to give expert advice on islamophobia, as well as help create a clear definition of the social problem.Imam Qari Asim MBE, Deputy Chair of the Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group, has been selected for the important role, and he will be joined by a second advisor in due course, according to a press release from the UK government.Asim, along with his team, will draw on a wide range of opinions and work in close collaboration with the cross-government Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group to build on the current definitions of Islamophobia, added the statement. Asim expressed his honor in being entrusted with the role, “which will have a far-reaching impact in protecting British Muslims and tackling anti-Muslim hatred.”“To tackle the alarming rise in anti-Muslim sentiment, it is imperative that Islamophobia is defined,” he said.“I am deeply committed to working across Muslim communities and with relevant stakeholders to formulate a legally robust, comprehensive and workable definition of Islamophobia.”The government also pledged to stand by Asim in his work against Islamophobia, agreeing that “there needs to be a formal definition of Islamophobia to help strengthen our efforts against anti-Muslim hatred.”The current government definition, the statement adds, unintentionally undermines freedom of speech, and prevents legitimate criticism of Islamist extremism, or of unacceptable cultural practices.“The government is wholeheartedly committed to ensuring that Muslims are not targeted for hatred, persecution or discrimination,” said Communities Secretary James Brokenshire.“Imam Asim’s appointment marks a further step in helping us to achieve that goal and ensures that we develop an effective definition of Islamophobia which commands widespread support,” he continued.Recent crackdown on IslamophobiaThe appointment of an independent expert is part of ongoing efforts by the UK government to crackdown on Islamophobia.In recent years, the government doubled the Places of Worship Fund, which protects mosques and other places of worship, to £1.6 million.  A new £5 million fund has also been allocated to provide security training and consultation on what more can be done to protect faith communities.The crackdown and concentrated efforts are in response to worrying statistics showing a rise in islamophobia. In its 2017 annual report, Tell MAMA, a UK government-funded NGO, logged the highest ever number of anti-muslim incidents since its launch 5 years earlier. The NGO recorded a total of 1,330 anti-muslim acts, defined as vandalism, harassment, and violence, in 2017 alone. read more

WatchGM will get back to Oshawa workers by Jan 7 on whether

“The meeting today was frustrating,” said Dias at a press conference in Windsor following the sit-down.“But in the meeting today, General Motors did not unilaterally slam the door either. They announced that they would listen to our proposals and they would get back to us by the 7th of January whether or not they will work with us to find a solution.”Dias said the company has options, such as extending the life of the car lines produced in Oshawa, keeping current truck production there, or shifting other planned production from Mexico to the Oshawa plant, which can produce both cars and trucks.‘A shame, a crime, a betrayal’ — After 100 years, Oshawa faces life without its golden-ticket employer‘More to come’: Why GM closed its Oshawa plant and what it means for Canada’s auto sector’They’re gone. They’re done,’ Premier Doug Ford says Ontario can’t save GM plantGM blindsided the union and the city of Oshawa when it announced in late November that it was winding down operations at the plant and cutting close to 3,000 jobs.Unifor has described the move as a betrayal, amplifying that message by launching a new advertising campaign Thursday on television, radio, online and in newspapers.“Our argument to General Motors today is that they truly have gone too far,” said Dias.Dias has said the closure of the Oshawa plant would set the stage for the company leaving Canada entirely with just one assembly plant left in the country.In a news release, GM Canada said it was looking to counter some of the claims of the union, adding that it was “committed to Canada and we are not going anywhere.” The company said it still has a workforce of more than 5,000 in Canada and has also committed millions of dollars to retrain and help Oshawa workers transition to new jobs.Late last month, the automaker announced that the Oshawa plant was one of five facilities it would close, the four others being in the United States. Production at the Oshawa plant has been dwindling for years and it has been operating well under capacity. WINDSOR, Ont. — Unifor president Jerry Dias says General Motors will consider options put forward by the union to keep the Oshawa assembly plant open and respond by Jan. 7.Dias met with senior GM officials at their headquarters in Detroit Thursday to make the case that the Ontario plant should be kept open.General Motors did not unilaterally slam the doorUnifor president Jerry Dias read more

Folks ask about Tumtum no sale yet

first_imgNews that Clark County landmark Tumtum Mountain is for sale has generated a slew of suggestions and inquiries, according to the real estate broker marketing the property.But there have been no serious takers so far, said Terri Eklund, hired to sell the cone-shaped hill near the tiny community of Chelatchie Prairie. Tumtum is being sold as part of the estate of Billie McKee Sr., a Battle Ground logging company owner who died in February.Since her unusual real estate listing was publicized in a Nov. 8 newspaper story, “I’ve gotten all kinds of calls,” Eklund said.One college student said he would buy the mountain in three years if she hasn’t sold it by then.“It has always been his dream to own Tumtum Mountain,” Eklund said.The listing price of the 1,400-foot-tall mountain is $699,900, a 50 percent reduction from its original list price of $1.4 million.A familiar site in the Cascade foothills of northern Clark County, Tumtum is a lava dome that formed the same way as its giant neighbor, Mount St. Helens. The difference, according to local experts, is that Tumtum is no longer active. St. Helens is.Eklund has also toured the mostly tree-covered Tumtum with logging company representatives and other potential buyers who considered the site for commercial enterprises.“But there’s been no written offers yet,” she said.The 360-acre mountain is zoned for forestry, which means it could be managed for long-termproduction of commercial forest products, said Jerry Bonagofsky, chief executive officer of the Washington Contract Loggers Association Inc. in Olympia.Bonagofsky said Tumtum’s designation could generate interest among investors who buy timber land to hold and harvest at a later date.“It may be years before the timber is ready for harvest, depending on its age,” Bonagofsky said. “It’s a matter of timing, like any investment, making sure you time the market and achieve a respectable rate of return.”It is unclear when the timber on Tumtum was last harvested. McKee had owned the mountain since 1988, when he purchased it from Delaware-based Cavenham Forest Industries Inc. Before that, it was owned by Crown Zellerbach Corp., former owner of the paper mill in Camas.last_img read more

Fire levels Vancouver apartment complex

first_imgA two-alarm fire leveled a four-story apartment complex under construction in east Vancouver early Friday morning.A member of 24-Hour Fitness, 800 S.E. Tech Center Drive, saw the flames coming from the four-story complex at about 3:20 a.m. and called 911, said Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli.About 40 firefighters from the Vancouver and Camas-Washougal fire departments responded but were unable to save the building, which had been framed but lacked any fire protection features.“It was completely involved,” Scarpelli said. “Firefighters took a defensive attack on this fire to protect any exposure.”There were no reported injuries.Scarpelli said the Columbia Tech Center Lofts, planned as a 90-unit complex just south of Mill Plain Boulevard near Southeast 177th Avenue, was about 50 percent complete. The construction project has a price tag of more than $4 million, according to building permits. Scarpelli said because it hadn’t been outfitted with all its amenities, she estimated the financial loss somewhere between $3 and $3.5 million.Natural gas helped to fuel the flames until a utility crew shut off the line, but Scarpelli said the blaze burned the complex “to the ground.” Scarpelli said the circumstances of the fire are unusual, and the agency’s arson investigation team is looking into the fire. She said investigators looking for the cause of the fire will likely bring in a dog trained to detect accelerants.last_img read more

Ketchikan borough considers body cameras for animal control

first_imgThe Ketchikan Gateway Borough’s Department of Animal Protection is considering equipping field officers with body cameras.The Ketchikan Daily News reports that the department is involved with a committee review of both the Pat Wise Animal Shelter and the department’s policies.Animal protection officers issue fines, respond to complaints and investigate allegations of abuse. Some officials say those interactions with the public can leave pet owners growling.Assistant Borough Manager Deanna Garrison called some citations “explosive.”Still, other committee members worry body cameras would lead to a hostile work environment because of the constant surveillance.Garrison said after a committee meeting Wednesday that a proposal to use body cameras would go before the Borough Assembly for a public process and vote maybe before the end of the year.last_img read more

BlackBerry Makes a New Play for Business Users

first_imgRelated: 3 Tips for Choosing the Right Smartphone for Your BusinessBlackBerry 10 is coming, but we don’t know when.Actual deployment dates of the new OS have not been announced. There is no scheduled timetable for the launch, according to RIM CEO Thorsten Heins, “because we want to get it perfect.”The action here was about demonstrating capabilities for potential developers rather than showing actual products. Company executives touted new features: less emphasis on the physical keyboard and a dramatic new program for app developers.Additionally, RIM said it will guarantee a minimum of $10,000 in annual revenue to certified app developers. Apps must be officially accepted into the BlackBerry App World, RIM’s online software market place. And if the app doesn’t make $10,000 in its first year, the developer will receive payment for the difference.Touch keyboard to be gesture controlled.The yet-to-be-released platform will be based on a software development language called QNX. The language will enable a new concept called “flow” in data entry for mobile devices, according to Heins. That means small, touch-based gestures can let users move from app to app and type in ways traditional QWERTY-based keyboards cannot.But for business users who prefer a physical keyboard, the BlackBerry 10 platform will still support devices that run traditional QUERTY inputs, Heins said.Related: Dumping Your BlackBerry? Join the ClubRIM claims the “flow” will enable cutting-edge personalization algorithms that potentially could not only finish the word a user is typing, but could predict the next word that person intends to type. It expects data entry to be faster and more intuitive the more businesses use the phone. Users will be able to stack several running apps on top of each other and controls are expected for how to use screen space.It should be particularly useful for switching between a document and an email, for instance. Copying-and-pasting should be easy.Real business potential remains to be seen.The consensus among many developers and app companies here is that there is plenty of potential interest in the new software but aren’t sure yet if devices, plans and functionality will offer value to business users. For RIM’s efforts in building new partnerships with developers to succeed, the line of BlackBerry 10 phones and devices must compete with the major mobile players including Apple, Motorola and Samsung.What do you think of this early look at BlackBerry’s new operating system?

Venezuelas Chávez admits cancer relapse designates heir apparent

first_imgNo related posts. By Lissy de AbreuCARACAS, Venezuela – Leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez admitted a relapse of his cancer late Saturday and designated Vice President Nicolas Maduro as his heir apparent in case “something happened” to him.Speaking on national television, an emotional Chávez said a return of cancer cells was detected during his most recent visit to Cuba for medical examination, and he will return to the communist-ruled island as early as Sunday for another round of surgery.“During this thorough examination, they again detected some malignant cells in the same area as before,” Chávez said.He did not offer details, but his cancer was first detected in the pelvic area. Neither the Venezuelan leader, nor his Cuban doctors have ever disclosed what kind of cancer that was.He admitted he was suffering “somewhat strong” pain and was taking tranquilizers as part of preparation for his upcoming surgery.Chávez acknowledged that his Cuban medical team had conveyed to him a sense of urgency about the operation, which he said was now “absolutely necessary.”“The doctor recommended that I undergo surgery yesterday [Friday] at the latest, or this weekend,” he noted. “But I did not agree and came back home.”Chavez returned from Havana on Friday after a 10-day stay in Cuba. He had not been seen in public for three weeks.The Venezuelan leader also said that in the event “something happened” and he were incapacitated, Vice President Nicolas Maduro would step in and assume control of the government for the rest of the 2013-2019 term, as required by the constitution.But in what appeared like a presentation of his final will, the president also indicated he would like Maduro to take over the reins of power in a post-Chávez period, urging Venezuelans to vote for him in the next presidential elections.“You choose Maduro as president of the republic,” said Chávez told the nation. “I am asking you this from all my heart.”Maduro, who has been serving as Venezuala’s foreign minister for the past six years, was appointed vice president in the wake of the October presidential elections. He has held both portfolios since.Firebrand leader Chávez made his latest announcement despite frequent assurances on the campaign trail before his re-election in October that he had been cured of cancer.Recurring bouts of the disease have dogged Chávez’s presidency for the past couple of years, requiring him to spend weeks at a time being treated in Cuba.He had a cancerous tumor removed from near his pelvic area last year.The Venezuelan leader, 58, has repeatedly claimed to have beaten the cancer that was diagnosed in 2011 and shrugged off his illness to see off a unified opposition and secure another six-year term on Oct. 7.In Cuba last week, the official newspaper Granma explained that Chávez’s treatment consisted of oxygenation.The American Cancer Society says there is no evidence that this oxygen treatment – in which a patient gets inside a pressurized chamber and breathes pure oxygen for an hour – works against cancer.But the society says it can serve as treatment for ailments stemming from radiation treatment.Chávez, who has been in power since 1999 and gained global prominence as an anti-U.S. firebrand, appeared weak and subdued during the presidential campaign, but still managed to win another term that extends to 2019.Prior to Saturday’s surprise announcement, he had last been seen in public on Nov. 15, and two weeks later he went to Cuba for treatment.Over the past year and a half, Chávez has missed practically every regional meeting he was to have attended, such as the Summit of the Americas in Colombia, the Mercosur summit in Brazil and last month’s Ibero-American summit in Cadiz, Spain.
