Avoid comfort food during stress

first_imgIndulging in high-calorie ‘comfort’ foods when you are stressed can lead to more weight gain than usual, scientists say. Researchers from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Australia discovered a molecular pathway in the brain, controlled by insulin, which drives the additional weight gain. Using an animal model, the team showed that a high-calorie diet when combined with stress resulted in more weight gain than the same diet caused in a stress-free environment.

Some individuals eat less when they’re stressed, but most will increase their food intake – and crucially, the intake of calorie-dense food high in sugar and fat. To understand what controls this ‘stress eating’, the team investigated different areas of the brain in mice. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardWhile food intake is mainly controlled by a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, another part of the brain – the amygdala – processes emotional responses, including anxiety. “Our study showed that when stressed over an extended period and high calorie food was available, mice became obese more quickly than those that consumed the same high fat food in a stress-free environment,” said Kenny Chi Kin Ip, lead author of the study published in the journal Cell Metabolism. At the centre of this weight gain, the scientists discovered, was a molecule called NPY, which the brain produces naturally in response to stress to stimulate eating in humans as well as mice. “We discovered that when we switched off the production of NPY in the amygdala weight gain was reduced. Without NPY, the weight gain on a high-fat diet with stress was the same as weight gain in the stress-free environment,” said Ip. “This shows a clear link between stress, obesity and NPY,” he said. To understand what might control the NPY boost under stress, the scientists analysed the nerve cells that produced NPY in the amygdala and found they had receptors, or ‘docking stations’, for insulin – one of the hormones which control our food intake. Under normal conditions, the body produces insulin just after a meal, which helps cells absorb glucose from the blood and sends a ‘stop eating’ signal to the hypothalamus feeding centre of the brain. In the study, the scientists discovered that chronic stress alone raised the blood insulin levels only slightly, but in combination with a high-calorie diet, the insulin levels were 10 times higher than mice that were stress-free and received a normal diet. The study showed that these prolonged, high levels of insulin in the amygdala caused the nerve cells to become desensitised to insulin, which stopped them from detecting insulin altogether. In turn, these desensitised nerve cells boosted their NPY levels, which both promoted eating and reduced the bodies’ normal response to burn energy through heat, the study showed. “Our findings revealed a vicious cycle, where chronic, high insulin levels driven by stress and a high-calorie diet promoted more and more eating.”last_img read more

TORONTO — CIBC plans to move its headquarters in Toronto to a pair of office towers being built in the city’s financial district a few blocks south.The bank said in a statement that about 15,000 of its local employees will relocate from its current headquarters at Commerce Court and other locations to the new Bay Park Centre.The centre spans two towers and totals 2.9 million square feet of which CIBC will lease up to 1.75 million square feet for its headquarters, which will include a flagship bank.The bank said its lease agreement stipulates that Bay Park Centre will be rebranded under a CIBC name in the coming months.The two towers are expected to be completed in 2020 and 2023, during which time some of CIBC’s employees will relocate to their new space.Spokeswoman Caroline Van Hasselt said in an email that the bank will still have a presence at its Commerce Court location, including a bank. read more

Markets plunge around the world

If you were trading stocks today, or worrying about your retirement income, chances are, you’ve had a pretty rough day. Markets in Europe and North America plunged in early morning trading, making life tense for investors, both large and small.The problem isn’t North America, which is good news for the United States, and at least a little bit of comfort for Canada. But while the U.S. economy is showing promising signs of revival, Canada is not as fortunate. In fact at the moment, Canada has one of the weakest stock markets, in the world.When the NYSE opened this morning the big board was on a downward dive and everyone was being affected. For several months now, there have been worried whispers about China, which is the second largest economy in the world.“The Chinese economy isn’t exactly crashing, that’s a terrible word to say but the Chinese economy is slowing.” explains Eric Lam, from Bloomberg News.And that’s especially bad news, for Canada because we export so many raw materials to China, oil in particular.Lam says the last week has wiped out nearly a year of market gains, but we’re still nowhere near the global recession of 2008. read more

Court hears argument on pension benefit increases

first_imgOLYMPIA — The state Supreme Court is weighing arguments over legislative action in recent years to end some pension benefit increases for state and local government employees.At issue are two actions taken by lawmakers. In 2007, the Legislature repealed pension “gain-sharing” that benefited retirees when the markets were doing well. Then in 2011, lawmakers ended cost-of-living increases for pensions for former state employees enrolled in two older pension plans. Lawsuits were filed by various unions that opposed the changes, including the Washington Federation of State Employees. The high court heard both cases Thursday.In 2010, a King County judge ruled that lawmakers violated contractual rights by taking away gain-sharing without providing comparable replacement benefits. And last year, a Thurston County judge ruled that the Legislature was wrong to eliminate the annual increase in benefits to retirees.last_img read more

Gears of War 4 The Best Xbox Exclusive of the Generation

first_imgI didn’t become personally acquainted with the Gears of War franchise until late last year when I purchased an Xbox One along with a copy of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. Even though this game was nearly ten years old at the time, I had more fun playing it than I did with most of 2015’s releases. I eventually played through Gears of War 2 and 3 and thoroughly enjoyed those as well (though I will admit that the first game is my favorite out of the original trilogy). I arrived late to the party, but I was now a big fan of the series. Like many others out there, I eagerly anticipated the release of Gears of War 4.The game released yesterday (though some did get early access to it last Friday) and I managed to play through most of it. I already knew I was going to like Gears of War 4, but after playing all the way up to the beginning of the final act, I can now safely say that it is not only a strong entry in the franchise but easily the best Xbox game released this generation. Fans of Microsoft’s gaming division have had it relatively rough this generation, but they now have something to truly boast about. Gears of War 4 is a spectacular game that does the Xbox brand proud.Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years after Gears of War 3. Because of that, The Coalition had the chance to restart the series for a brand-new generation. We’re treated to an exciting prologue that lets players briefly play through two important historical events in the Gears universe. Right from the outset this title distinguishes itself from the others since none of them ever had an introduction like this. With that said, all of the mechanics we’ve come to know remained the same, just refined. The intro was letting us know that, while things are different, this was still very much a Gears of War game.The Gears of War series is generally regarded as being all about non-stop, over-the-top action. What people don’t often talk about is how the first game had a strong horror component. The original contained moments that were genuinely terrifying. This horror vibe is something Gears of War 4 resurrects. I won’t give anything away, but there is a thin but palpable undercurrent of terror that runs through the game. Even the environments’ admittedly narrower paths make one feel uncomfortable and scared of what may jump out from behind the corners.The Gears series always had big beefy men shooting equally big and beefy monsters. While Gears 4 still retains a lot of adrenaline-fueled action, the characters aren’t as stereotypically macho as the ones from the previous entries. Instead of feeling like Predator or Aliens, Gears of War 4 is a lot like a Buddy Cop film due to all of the witty banter and jokes from the main cast. While it is certainly serious, the tone is decidedly more lighthearted than other installments. I appreciated that Gears 4 wasn’t overtly dark and allowed itself to be funny when it was necessary.As far as gameplay goes, the biggest change comes from the dynamic environment. In Gears 4, the world is constantly under the threat of massive storms that make the tornadoes from Twister seem tame. While these storms and the accompanying lightning that comes with them can certainly harm or kill you, you can use the bad weather to your advantage. For example, the support that holds massive pipes in place can be shot off, causing the winds to send these pipes rolling over enemies. Besides serving a strategic function, the dynamic weather is just plain fun. I never got tired of shooting enemies dead and then seeing their lifeless bodies be violently carried away by the winds.I didn’t get to try out the series’ famous Horde mode since I focused my efforts on the campaign, but I still got to try out some of this mode’s new features. There are a few portions in the story where you have to secure your immediate surroundings from enemies. This is done thanks to a device called the Fabricator which can produce barriers, decoys, and turrets to help you defend your position. I felt that these sections halted the progress of the story, but from a pure gameplay standpoint, it was a lot of fun to hold back all of these nasty monsters with defenses I set up. I’m sure if I were doing these portions with friends it would be a pure blast. After I finish the story, I am most definitely going back to play Horde 3.0 with my buddies.Gears of War 4 is available on Xbox One, but it is also on PC. In fact, purchasing it digitally on one platform will give you access to it on the other thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere. I played the game on my computer which I recently upgraded with a GTX 1080 graphics card. The card is no lightweight, and I was able to run the game on Ultra settings at 60 frames per second with no issues. Gears 4 looks incredible on Xbox One but on PC it is quite a sight to behold. There were plenty of times where I just had to stop to let my eyes feast on the gorgeous visuals. The colors are vibrant; the textures were smooth, and the lighting and particle effects greatly enhanced the atmosphere. This game was meticulously optimized to run on PC, and it shows. Gears of War 4 is without a doubt one of the best-looking games out right now.I should be finished with the game by tomorrow, but I’m already preparing for my second playthrough and beyond. The Gears franchise has some of the most satisfying cover-based shooting mechanics out there, and Gears of War 4 fulfills a very specific need in that regard. From a gameplay standpoint, this game isn’t radically different from previous entries, but it doesn’t have to be. This is a title that is simply a blast to play and isn’t mired in a lot of the superfluous baggage that other games get bogged down with. Gears of War 4 knows exactly what type of game it is and isn’t trying to be anything more than a fun, bad-ass third person shooter.last_img read more

Why do we celebrate Youth Day

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Then came the first shot – straight into the crowd – and more shots were fired by police and 12-year-old Hector Pieterson fell to the ground.Then all hell broke loose. Pupils targeted apartheid symbols, administrative offices, government buses and vehicles. Municipal beer halls were first looted and then set alight. By the end of the day, thick clouds of black smoke hung over the township and the streets were littered with upturned vehicles, stones and rocks.Anti-riot vehicles poured into Soweto, roadblocks were erected at all entrances and the army was placed on alert.Violence spread to another volatile Johannesburg township, Alexandra, and then across South Africa. By June 18, all schools in Soweto and Alexandra had been closed by the authorities.International solidarity movements were roused and gave their support to the pupils, putting pressure on the government to temper its repressive rule. This pressure was maintained throughout the 1980s, until resistance movements were finally unbanned in 1990. Principals were almost immediately allowed to choose their own medium of instruction, a major victory for the pupils.This is a very brief outline of why June 16, which was first known as Soweto Day but then changed to Youth Day, is commemorated in South Africa each year in June, which is also Youth Month.Click to receive news links via WhatsApp. Or  for the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Join us there! Today (June 16) is National Youth Day.Youth Day is the day that honours the deaths of many Soweto schoolchildren; a day in 1976 that changed the course of South Africa’s history.On that day, the government and police were caught off guard when the simmering anger of schoolchildren finally burst, releasing an intensity of emotion that the police controlled aggressively. SA History Online puts the number of dead at 200, far higher than the official figure of 23.In 1976, the government introduced the compulsory use of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction from Grade 7 (then Standard 5). Pupils, teachers and principals opposed the ruling on Afrikaans, for more or less the same reasons –  teachers were ill-equipped to teach in the language, which was, for most, a third language.When schools re-opened in January 1976, parents and principals were unhappy. At a meeting called by pupils, they agreed that on June 16, pupils throughout Soweto would gather in a mass demonstration against Afrikaans.On June 16, as planned, they set off for Orlando West Secondary School, with thousands coming in from all directions.Over 5000 pupils had gathered in Vilakazi Street, with many more streaming in – a total of 15,000 uniformed pupils were there. The plan to move to the Orlando Stadium did not happen because police, who had been called in, formed a wall facing the pupils, warning them to disperse; an order met with resistance. Tear gas was fired into the crowd and in the chaos, children ran back and forth, throwing stones at the police, who fired more tear gas.last_img read more

Ukraines president warns of possibility of rebel offensive

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ukrainian servicemen from battalion “Kiev1” perform house to house checks in Marinka, Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine, Thursday June 4, 2015. A major battle erupted Wednesday on the western edge of the main separatist rebel stronghold in eastern Ukraine, leaving more than a dozen dead and threatening to tip the country back into full-blown war. The Ukrainian Interior Ministry said at least one person was killed in Marinka, the government-held town where fighting was centered. (AP Photo/Evgeniy Maloletka) Mission spokesman Michael Bociurkiw on Thursday urged all sides in the conflict to “exercise maximum restraint.” He also told reporters that observers in recent days had found that some heavy weapons which had been pulled back by both sides were missing from the areas where they were being stored.“This suggests non-compliance” with the cease-fire accord, which called for both sides to pull back large weapons in order to create a buffer zone, Bociurkiw said.An Associated Press reporter on Thursday saw two Grad missile launchers driving toward the government-controlled town of Artemivsk. Under the cease-fire accord, such weapons were to be withdrawn from that area.Russia has strongly denied supplying the rebels either with weapons or with recruits, despite mounting evidence suggesting otherwise.The U.N.

A cease-fire called in February has been violated almost daily, but hostilities had tapered off after the agreement. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The fighting was heaviest in in the village of Marinka. Ukrainian officials said five servicemen were killed on Wednesday, four of them in or around Marinka. Late Wednesday, the minister of defense for the Donetsk rebels, Eduard Basurin, said 14 rebels and five civilians had been killed by Ukrainian fire during the day, but didn’t specify locations.Ukrainian military spokesman Col. Andriy Lysenko claimed Thursday that about 80 rebels were killed in the fighting, along with two civilians.On Thursday, rebels shelled the town of Avdiyivka just north of Donetsk, according to a Facebook post from Vyacheslav Abroskin, the police chief for the government-controlled sector of the Donetsk region. He said an unspecified number of civilians were wounded.The intensity of the combat the day before raised fears of full-scale fighting resuming in the war that has already killed more than 6,400 people since April 2014.In an address to the Ukrainian parliament, President Petro Poroshenko spoke of a “colossal threat of the resumption of large-scale hostilities by Russian and terrorist forces” and said there are now 9,000 Russian troops in the rebel-controlled area.The monitoring mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation Europe said its observers saw at least a dozen tanks moving from the rebel-controlled city toward the western outskirts in the run-up to the battle.

We discussed the tasks ahead and how we wanted to proceed. On the 18th of October a group of 100 pilots, flight and aircraft engineers, maintenance staff, among others all came to Dubai to initiate the planning stages, and we began test flights from then on to ensure everything would operate to plan.  I was also tasked to train UAE National pilots. They were trained in Dubai and got their commercial licenses from the Civil Aviation Authority in Pakistan.We had some great memories from the first flight. Some of the flight caps were oversized for some of our pilots and they looked quite funny with them on their heads. However, that was a minor detail. We pushed back and took off on time, and this signaled a great achievement for the airline in such a short period of time.”In the 30 year period since those early days recounted by Captain Mian, Emirates has grown to become the world’s largest international airline. Emirates currently serves 147 cities on six continents.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more
