What your doctor didn’t tell you about calcium

Tweetcenter_img Share 11 Views   no discussions Long before I became a registered dietitian or nutrition editor, I knew the importance of getting enough calcium for strong bones.And because I’m not a milk drinker, my doctor has told me multiple times to take a supplement. I’m not alone either: Many women are advised to take a calcium supplement for healthy bones—especially after menopause (when decreasing estrogen levels accelerate bone loss). (Find out how much calcium you need here.) In fact, the majority of American women over 31 take calcium supplements, says a 2010 study in The Journal of Nutrition.Can A Multivitamin Help You Slim Down?But new research, published online in the British Medical Journal, might have you second-guessing a supplement. Scientists reported that postmenopausal women who took calcium supplements increased their risk of heart attack by 25 to 30 percent and stroke by 15 to 20 percent.Calcium supplements—unlike calcium-rich foods, such as milk—increase blood calcium levels for a few hours after they’re taken, says Ian Reid, M.D., the study’s lead author. (Find delicious calcium-rich recipes here.) This bump may raise risk of heart disease—possibly because the calcium is deposited in the walls of the arteries, making them less pliable.Other experts think women’s supplement habits shouldn’t change, in part because there’s research to show calcium may help the heart. “Postmenopausal women given calcium supplements had a slightly lower risk of stroke and heart disease,” says Robert Heaney, M.D., professor of medicine at Creighton University and an internationally recognized calcium expert, citing a study he and colleagues conducted.Bottom line: Before you start—or stop—taking calcium supplements, speak with your doctor. Women aged 19 to 50 need 1,000 mg per day; for women 51-plus, it’s 1,200 mg daily. It’s possible to meet these recommendations through food—if you choose wisely. Dairy products are good choices (choose nonfat or low-fat to limit saturated fat), as are kale and collards.By: Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D., Nutrition EditorEatingWell Magazinelast_img read more

Barnes urges Hornets to strengthen

first_img New manager Quique Sanchez Flores will kick off a first campaign in English football away at Everton, having been appointed following the Hertfordshire club’s promotion. Watford finished rock bottom when they were last in the top flight in 2007, but have already made moves to strengthen the squad. “It is going to be challenging managing anyone in the Premier League,” said Barnes, who had spells coaching at Celtic and Tranmere, as well as with Jamaica’s national team. “He was obviously at a very, very good club challenging for the Europa League (in 2010) although not in the league all the time. Keeping Watford in the Premier League is a completely different scenario. “He is new to it and he won’t know much about the players, so he has to be given time. “I think he’s a good manager and if he knows the players he wants and can get them, he has a chance. “Fighting off relegation is something he will be doing now.” Sanchez Flores, appointed after Watford decided not to renew the contract of Slavisa Jokanovic, is determined to get things right at Vicarage Road. “Seeing the Premier League fixtures and knowing I will be part of this with Watford makes me want the start of the season to be here tomorrow,” he said on the club’s official website. “I have a chance to play a big part in this with the Watford players and the fans. This is the most important moment for me now, to prepare and be ready for an amazing challenge in my career.” Striker Troy Deeney, who scored 21 goals as Watford finished second to Bournemouth, has emerged as a target for Newcastle, whose new boss Steve McClaren tried to sign him at Derby last season. Press Association Former Watford striker John Barnes has warned the Hornets will need to “strengthen in all areas” if they are to stay in the Barclays Premier League. Austrian defender Sebastian Prodl and Lithuanian goalkeeper Giedrius Arlauskis have been signed, while a move for £6million-rated Blackburn striker Rudy Gestede has also been touted along with a deal for Genoa’s Argentinian winger Diego Perotti. Barnes spearheaded the Hornets’ attack when they finished runners-up in the old First Division under Graham Taylor and he also reached the 1984 FA Cup final. However, the 51-year-old former England international believes Watford need to have plenty of strength in depth if they are to last the distance among the elite of English football. “They need to strengthen in all areas. When teams come up from the Championship, the gulf is huge,” Barnes said in the London Evening Standard. “They can’t think they have a good enough defence. They need to be realistic. There’s no point spending millions and millions because the best players won’t go to Norwich or Watford. “They need to get better quality all-round players, but they shouldn’t spend money for the sake of it. “They need to get solid, hard-working players and solid defenders with someone who can score goals like Burnley did with Danny Ings.” Sanchez Flores cannot wait to get started, but Barnes believes the Spaniard, who won the Europa League with Atletico Madrid, will face a steep learning curve. last_img read more

Coke’s Double Sinks Liverpool

first_imgEUROPA FINALSevilla staged a remarkable second half comeback to blow Liverpool out of the water and claim their third successive Europa League, as Coke netted twice to seal a 3-1 victory in Basel.Unai Emery’s men, outplayed in the first half, responded with an emphatic second 45 minutes to leave Liverpool reeling and condemn Jurgen Klopp to a fifth-straight defeat in a major final. Liverpool, who had dispatched Villarreal so impressively in the second leg of the semi-final, were the better side in the first half and deservedly took the lead when Daniel Sturridge curled in a superb finish from the edge of the area.But Sevilla, who came from behind to beat Dnipro in last year’s final, responded seconds after half-time with Kevin Gameiro’s 29th goal of the season, before Coke capped a fine team move to put the holders ahead.Klopp, whose side also lost the League Cup final to Manchester City in February, introduced Divock Origi in a bid to find a response but Coke struck a crucial blow 20 minutes from time, steering the ball beyond Simon Mignolet from close range despite Liverpool’s appeals for offside.Liverpool produced a memorable comeback against AC Milan to win their last European trophy in 2005, but there was to be no repeat of those Istanbul heroics as Sevilla became the first team to win Europe’s secondary competition three years running and ensured a spot in next season’s Champions League.Sevilla started with more control in a cagey opening 10 minutes, although Emre Can brought the first save of the match out of David Soria with a low effort from the edge of the area.Daniel Carrico made a timely intervention to hook Sturridge’s header off the line as Liverpool began to look threatening on the break, and Roberto Firmino felt he should have earned a penalty when he diverted the ball into the arm of the Sevilla centre-back.Gameiro got his first sight of goal, hooking a bicycle kick narrowly wide of the near post following a corner, but Sturridge produced a moment of magic to open the scoring 10 minutes before the break.Philippe Coutinho found Sturridge on the edge of the area and the England striker bent a sublime finish beyond Soria with the outside of his left foot.Lovren thought he had made it 2-0 with a towering header four minutes later, but the assistant referee flagged for offside after Sturridge had stuck out a foot to intercept the ball.The Liga side would have been glad to go into the break just a goal behind but they produced a fine response just 17 seconds into the second half. Mariano skipped easily past the challenge of former Sevilla full-back Alberto Moreno and squared across goal for Gameiro, who tapped into an unguarded net.Sevilla, suddenly buoyant, missed two great chances to take the lead through Gameiro before the hour mark. The Frenchman was first denied by a fine block tackle from Kolo Toure after racing in behind the Liverpool back line, before he scuffed a volley straight at Mignolet after Steven N’Zonzi’s header found him completely unmarked six yards out.Yet just as Sevilla looked as though they might rue those misses, Coke stepped up to put his side in control. A fine passing move involving Ever Banega and Vitolo saw Sevilla slice through the heart of Liverpool’s midfield, and when the ball broke to Coke, he rifled a first-time shot into Mignolet’s bottom-right corner.And Coke put the holders on the brink of an historic win six minutes later, squeezing a shot in off Mignolet from the right of the six-yard box after the ball had deflected off Coutinho and into the Sevilla captain’s path.Liverpool pushed for a repeat of the dramatic comeback which saw them oust Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals, but Sevilla held on to lift the trophy in front of their vociferous supporters.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

UW looks for consistency for rest of Big Ten schedule

first_imgWisconsin head coach Bo Ryan is looking for UW to be more consistent shooting the ball against Purdue.[/media-credit]Coming off four straight losses, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is looking to end their losing streak against the Boilermakers at the Kohl Center tonight. At Monday’s press conference, Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan addressed the matchup between his team and Purdue.“The game hasn’t changed over the years; there’s still the basic things that you have to try to execute well and those two teams (Illinois and Purdue) are in that mold right now,” Ryan said. “They (Purdue) played better than we did on both ends. That’s something that when you play you have to change that. Hopefully we can change that.”Ryan emphasized the importance of playing with confidence and remaining consistent with a lead. Against Iowa and Minnesota, the Badgers had leads before squandering them as time expired.?”You want it in the beginning, you want it in the middle, you want it three quarters, and you want it at the end,” Ryan said. “You want as much consistency as you can possibly have. So if somebody had a formula for the first 10 minutes I’m sure they’d be selling it.”Badgers shoot for consistency The Badgers have been lacking in consistency, shooting less than 40 percent from the field against Illinois with much lower percentages in the first half. The also shot about 70 percent from the free-throw line. The shooting percentages from the field have been below 40 percent in three of the last four games.“We haven’t finished around the basket,” Ryan said. “If you’re not making the shots, the only way you can get on the left hand side is you need to be getting at the free-throw line quite a bit because you’re getting fouled and then hit free throws.” ?The lack of consistency has forced the Badgers to play from behind. They had to force a last-second three to put the game into overtime against Iowa and a late-game surge brought Wisconsin within six points of Illinois in last Saturday’s match.“If you’re not making shots, you’re not getting some kind of a lead or putting defenses into position where they have to foul you and then you’re the ones that need the fouls at the end,” Ryan said. “If you look at the two overtimes we were playing from behind in both of them, so what’s the answer? Don’t get behind. That’s pretty easy.”Although the Badgers have been less consistent lately, Ryan is pleased with the shots the players are taking. He also added shooters must have a significant amount of confidence when they go up for a shot.“When I say confidence it is with shooting that belief, and nobody, nobody that I’ve ever seen can tell me they’ve known a good shooter who wasn’t very very confident about the ball going in, it’s in,” Ryan said. “When you have people shoot it and hope, that’s when you run into problems.”Freshmen come up bigDespite going on a four-game losing streak, the men’s basketball team has had some bright spots. Freshman guard Jordan Taylor has begun to see significant playing time off the bench, including 27 minutes against Illinois last weekend. He also contributed four points, three assists and a steal against the Illini. Rob Wilson, another freshman guard, has also been playing significant time off the bench in defensive situations?”Jordan’s just a man who wants to play and has patiently been working everyday looking for his opportunities, and he’s just a guy with a lot of moxie which we felt coming out of high school and he’s starting to show it,” Ryan said of Taylor.“Sometimes you can play a little older and sometimes you’re going to be a freshman,” Ryan said of Wilson. “Rob is a freshman. He just has to keep learning.”last_img read more

Syracuse defensive end Luke Arciniega granted 2 extra years of eligibility from NCAA

first_imgSyracuse defensive end Luke Arciniega has been granted two more years of eligibility by the NCAA, he announced on Saturday via Instagram.He had been practicing with Syracuse this spring while not knowing whether or not he had already played his final college game.“College career hasn’t gone as planned with all the injuries, but patience and faith has kept me on track,” Arciniega wrote in his Instagram post. “After few months of waiting, found out that I was granted 2 years of eligibility back when I was only hoping for one. Feeling blessed.”He had been a linebacker before this spring, but will be making a move to defensive end for this upcoming season.Arciniega spent his first year of college at Nevada, but didn’t play in a single game. He then transferred to Sierra College and played there during the 2012 season before transferring to Syracuse for the past two seasons.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn 2013, Arciniega played in all 13 games for the Orange before undergoing hip surgery in the offseason. He totaled 18 tackles, a sack and an interception in 2013.This past fall, what could have been Arciniega’s senior year, he played in just four games due to a lower-body injury and recorded four tackles.

University Professor Solomon Golomb dies at 83

first_imgSolomon W. Golomb, University Professor, Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering and Mathematics and the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Chair in Communications, died Sunday at his home. He was 83.“With unparalleled scholarly contributions and distinction to the field of engineering and mathematics, Sol’s impact has been extraordinary, transformative and impossible to measure,” Yannis Yortsos, dean of the Viterbi School of Engineering, said in a statement to Viterbi faculty and staff on Sunday.A graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Harvard University, Golomb joined the faculty at USC in 1963, serving for more than 50 years. Golomb was known for his pioneering work in communications theory, particularly shift register sequences. He also invented Golomb coding, a data compression method, and Golomb rulers, a specialized ruler used in radio astronomy and information theory. Golomb was also known for creating mathematical games such as polyominoes, which served as the inspiration for Tetris.“His fertile mind never ceased to amaze and his kindness and humanity never ceased to inspire,” Yortsos said. “Sol Golomb’s presence was catalytic, inspirational and ingenious.”Golomb was a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In 1985, he was awarded the USC Presidential Medallion, the University’s highest honor. In 2013, Golomb received the National Medal of Science from President Barack Obama for his work in mathematics and communications.“We have lost a brilliant mind, a mentor, a trusted colleague and advisor, a wonderful and kind human being, a steadfast supporter of the school and the university,” Yortsos said.  “But we also have been truly fortunate to be part of his life and to follow the paths that he traced for us, to be inspired and enlightened, and to have his brilliance and impact reflected on our achievements and on our aspirations.”last_img read more

Syracuse ice hockey spends too much time watching in 2-1 season-opening loss to Bemidji State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 1, 2016 at 12:44 am Contact Bobby: Reilly Fawcett stayed persistent in front of the net. No whistles could be heard inside Tennity Ice Pavilion so she kept pressing her stick into the puck between Abbey Miller’s left pad and the right goal post.No Syracuse defenders gathered alongside the crease to insert their competing sticks in on time and at 12:07 in the third period, Bemidji State’s Fawcett poked the puck slid through the gap. She rushed along both benches in celebration while Miller smacked the right post of the goal in disgust.That play was far from the only occurrence where the Beavers were first to retrieve a loose puck but it was the most pivotal. Fawcett’s unassisted third-period goal gave Bemidji State (1-0) a 2-1 lead it would not surrender in its opening-night win over the Orange (0-1).“They were much better prepared,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said, “and I just thought they were so much stronger on their sticks and so much more determined.”The game featured an overwhelming dose of penalties that allowed Syracuse to spend significant amounts of time in the BSU zone in the first period. Once those cleared up later, the Beavers’ strengths were showcased in dominant fashion.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe forecheck was strong as Syracuse pressed hard into BSU in the opposing zone, keeping the game in that end and crafting an 18-12 shot advantage.With sophomore defender Allie Munroe in the penalty box for holding in the second period, the Beavers rushed into the Orange zone and unloaded twice as many shots as Syracuse. Alexis Joyce, situated in front of the blue line across from Miller, lifted a wrist shot over her head that banged off the post. BSU reacted first and Emily Bergland floated a puck by Miller to tie the game at one.“I was trying to maintain my depth so I wasn’t getting pushed back into the net. I was trying to control my rebounds more and get the puck covered but I really didn’t get a chance that often.The rest of the game shifted to the Syracuse zone. Miller faced 21 shots to Mowat’s 12. The Orange only recorded seven shots on net over the final 40 minutes. Losing puck battles led to the turnaround, junior forward Stephanie Grossi said.“They just clog up the middle and they’re willing to sacrifice their body to block the shot,” Grossi said, “and we need to find a way to get those shots through and get to the net and get to those rebounds if we want to win.”Syracuse’s offense suffered from little play against the boards, a lack of spread-out offense to isolate the goalie, and many occurrences where players were looking down and shooting into opposing bodies.Megan Quinn received a pass on the power play right next to the goal with nothing but open net situated in front of her. She followed through as the puck slid her way and shot it wide.“That’s actually what we’re trying to create,” Flanagan said. “Get the goalie moving side to side.”The lack of activity on loose pucks and failure to create opportunities for themselves turned Friday’s opener into a messy display of hockey. The Orange barely got more than a few seconds of possession at a time in the third period.To Flanagan, the game-winning goal epitomized the game.“We just stood there and let her get her stick on it,” he said.
