Few of us think about taking more exercise, cutting back on alcohol or eating a healthy diet until some health problem or other comes along and forces us to take stock. The problem is that many of today’s health problems – high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers – are largely avoidable with a little effort. So what stops us from putting all the good lifestyle advice we hear into practice? Men tend to die an average of six years younger than women.

Most of us already know that we need to eat lots of fruit and vegetables, take regular exercise and watch our weight to be healthy, but sometimes the thought of all that effort can put us off.Luckily, just increasing the amount of fish you eat every week can make quite a difference to your health. While nothing will substitute for an overall healthy lifestyle, eating fish, especially oil-rich fish, twice a week is a simple and tasty step on the road to good health.Fish is rich in many vital nutrients including protein, B vitamins, selenium, iodine and zinc. Oil-rich fish is also an excellent source of omega 3 fats and vitamins A and D.Lemon and herb crusted haddockWHAT YOU NEED4 haddock fillets(or other chunky white fish)Two fist fulls of fresh breadcrumbsZest and juice of 2 lemonsBunch of chopped fresh parsley or chives2 tablespoons olive oil2 medium leeks – slicedA little salt and pepperWHAT TO DOMix the breadcrumbs with lemon juice, zest, herbs and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.Season the mixture with a little salt and pepper and pat firmly onto the fish.Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degC / 400 degF or Gas mark 5 for 10 – 12 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the topping is crisp and golden brown.While the fish is cooking, gently fry the leeks in the remaining olive oil until soft.Remove fish from oven and place on a bed of leeks.Serve with baked or mashed potato.

The effects of soil succession after glacial retreat and fertilisation by marine animals are known to have major impacts on soil greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes in polar terrestrial ecosystems. While in many polar coastal areas retreating glaciers open up new ground for marine animals to colonise, little is known about the combination of both factors on the local GHG budget. We studied the magnitude of GHG fluxes (CO2, CH4 and N2O) on the combined effect of glacial retreat and penguin-induced fertilisation along a transect protruding into the world’s largest King Penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus) colony at Saint Andrews Bay on sub-Antarctic South Georgia. GHG production and consumption rates were assessed based on laboratory incubations of intact soil cores and nutrients and water additional experimental incubations. The oldest soils along the transect show significant higher contents of soil carbon, nutrients and moisture and were strongly influenced by penguin activity. We found a net CH4 consumption along the entire transect with a marked decrease within the penguin colony. CO2 production strongly increased along the transect, while N2O production rates were low near the glacier front and increased markedly within the penguin colony. Controlled applications of guano resulted in a significant increase in CO2 and N2O production, and decrease in CH4 consumption, except for sites already strongly influenced by penguin activity. The results show that soil microbial activity promptly catalyses a turnover of soil C and atmospheric methane oxidation in de-glaciated forelands. The methane oxidizers, however, may increase relatively slowly in their capacity to oxidise atmospheric CH4. Results show also that the increase of nutrients by penguins reduces CH4 oxidation whereas N2O production is greatly increased. A future expansion of penguins into newly available ice-free polar coastal areas may therefore markedly increase the local GHG budget.

Roy Thomas, age 53, of Osgood passed away at his home early Saturday morning, April 6, 2019. He was surrounded by those he loved most. Roy was born on August 20, 1965 in Batesville, the son of William and Patricia (Landes) Thomas. He grew up and spent his entire life in the Osgood community.Roy was a graduate of Jac-Cen-Del class of 1983, where he enjoyed playing basketball, baseball, and golf. Shortly after finishing high school he met Jan (Dixon) of Milan, and the two of them were united in marriage on June 21, 1986 at the Osgood United Methodist Church. They have spent the last 30 plus years in Osgood raising their children, Paige and Riley.Roy had various jobs throughout life. He did sales and estimation, for the past 5 plus years, working for Four Seasons in Osgood. Early on in his career, he worked for Halcomb Home Center in sales and estimation, worked various carpentry jobs, and had completed numerous projects. Although he was a hard and dedicated worker, his favorite job was simply being Dad. If you were lucky enough to spend five minutes with him, you knew he was proud of his kids. He took pride in taking Paige to horse shows on the weekends, and coaching Riley in numerous sports. He truly fed off their success and happiness. He was passionate about helping kids learn and develop. Roy spent 15 years coaching different sports, at various levels for Jac-Cen-Del.To simply relax and enjoy life, Roy enjoyed fishing trips in Canada with his dad, going on weekend Jeep trips with Jan, spending time at the family’s pond, taking care of the farm, and spending the day with his family.He will be deeply missed by wife Jan, daughter Paige, son Riley all of Osgood, his mother Patricia, and dear family friends Tom and Gloria Borgman, Ellen (Bill) Davis, and Cory Stine.A private family Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorials can be given to the Osgood Volunteer Fire Department in care of Neal’s Funeral Home.
Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini are facing likely bans of around seven years when FIFA’s ethics judge delivers his verdict on Monday.Barring a major surprise, both FIFA president Blatter and UEFA president Platini are expected to be found guilty of ethics code breaches surrounding a £1.3million “disloyal payment” made to the Frenchman in 2011.German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, the chairman of FIFA’s adjudicatory chamber, held disciplinary hearings for the pair last week and is due to announce his findings and any sanctions on Monday morning.Ethics investigators accept that proving corruption, which carries a lifetime ban, will be difficult – it was reported on Sunday that Blatter himself had claimed that those charges would be dropped.Investigators are very confident that other charges including conflict of interest, false accounting and non co-operation – or criticism of the ethics committee – will be proved. A file running to more than 50 pages was submitted by investigators.Sources with knowledge of the case say sanctions handed down to other FIFA officials previously provide an indication of the level of the bans faced by Platini and Blatter. In July, Harold Mayne-Nichols. the official who headed the inspection team for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, was banned from all football-related activity for seven years for conflict of interest and breach of confidentiality.Former FIFA vice-president Chung Mong-Joon from Korea was banned for six years in October for ethics code breaches that he said related to matters such as duty of disclosure, and confidentiality.Platini boycotted his hearing in Zurich on Friday in protest, claiming a decision already appeared to have been made. His lawyers attended, but it looks as though the Frenchman is already preparing to take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.His slim hopes of running for the FIFA presidency on February 26 would be finally ended by any sort of a ban however. The provisional suspensions imposed on him and Blatter in October mean he has been unable to carry out any campaigning.Blatter is unlikely to go quietly either as he faces an end to his four decades at the top of FIFA. The 79-year-old has called a news conference for Monday morning in Zurich in the same building that used to house FIFA before it moved to its new headquarters in 2006. He has already claimed in media interviews that the ethics committee has no power to remove him as president. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySports
