first_imgCornell Nutritional Expert, Vermont Baby Formula Company Urge Parents Not to Dilute Formula with Extra WaterGEORGIA, Vt., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ — In response to press reports of parents diluting baby formula in this difficult economy, a nutritional expert and a leading manufacturer of infant formula are urging parents to breastfeed or use formula responsibly by following the instructions on the can.”It is critical that parents refrain from diluting baby formula with extra water during these tough economic times,” said Barbara S. Levine, R.D., Ph.D., director of the first NIH-funded Nutrition Information Center at Weill Cornell Medical College. “If parents choose to formula feed, they must remember it is an infant’s sole source of nutrition.”PBM Nutritionals, LLC, a supplier of store-brand infant formula found at Walmart, Sam’s Club, Target, Kroger, Walgreens, and other leading retailers in the United States and throughout the world, recommend parents breastfeed or use formula responsibly.”Breastfeeding is best for babies,” said PBM CEO Paul B. Manning. “When it comes to using formula, parents should follow the directions on the label exactly to ensure that their babies get the nutrition they need for healthy growth and development. We are pleading with moms and dads to read and follow the instructions on their formulas of choice.””If money is an issue, parents must understand that store brand infant formulas cost up to half the price of comparable national brands,” added Levine. “And the FDA sets the nutritional and quality standards for all infant formulas, so store brand formulas have to meet the same strict guidelines as national brands.”PBM is a leading supplier of infant formula sold throughout the world; its commitment to research and development ensures that all of its formulas are safe, high quality, and offer the latest advances in nutrition.

Meaning of life isn’t in material things

first_imgOnce again, I’ve enjoyed Peter Looker’s Jan. 22 socioeconomic analysis in The Gazette Opinion section. Allow me to add a few observations.  Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Sadly, it seems that advertisements for things we don’t really need continue to control our sense of well being and have blinded many of us to the conditions of those less fortunate.Maybe cutting that cord to networks controlled by Madison Avenue will help turn things around and our children and grandchildren will learn that rather than greed and excess, contentment is the key to happiness.Perhaps it’s due to the fact that I’m in the downsizing phase of my life that I can look back with nostalgia at a time when basic necessities were appreciated and keeping up with the Joneses (or Trumps and Kardashians) wasn’t a national obsession. Helping others while cherishing family and friends may be old fashioned, but I sincerely hope they haven’t permanently gone out of style.Virginia NewtonBurnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

Pardew to change training regime

first_img The Magpies have put together a run of five successive victories, four of them in the Barclays Premier League, to completely change the complexion of their season. However, they have lost men along the way to injury, some of them on the training ground, and that is something the manager and his coaching staff will look to address as they attempt to strike a balance between achieving the highest possible fitness levels and the demands that places on the squad. Press Association Pardew told the Shields Gazette: “I met my staff and we are going to change one or two things. We are pushing these players to the limit. We’re trying to get the maximum we can out of them, and if you do that, you are going to lose players here and there. “The other players, you can tell, are really super-fit, and we’re strong. But we still need a few more bodies back. “As a group, we have to make sure we protect the players and give them the best possible chance to be at their maximum on a Saturday. “We’re pushing the players, and we’re going to get injuries. We’re pushing them because we want them to be fitter and stronger than everybody else, and so you’ve got a balance there. “We’ve just got to make sure we get that right, because we lost one or two that perhaps we shouldn’t have.” Captain Fabricio Coloccini is one of the men currently on the casualty list, although he picked up his calf problem in the 2-0 win at West Brom last time out and could be missing for several weeks. With Steven Taylor battling a similar injury, the Magpies recalled 20-year-old Remie Streete from his loan spell at Port Vale last week, although Taylor is hopeful of being fit for QPR’s visit to St James’ Park on Saturday. center_img Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is to ease the workload on his players after admitting they have been pushed to the limit.last_img read more

West Brom line up record Rondon bid

first_img “I’m very delighted by the move,” Gnabry told the club’s official site. “I see the opportunity that I can play, it’s a good club and I’ve heard good things. “I’m very happy that I’ve signed here. I’ve got good impressions and I feel it’s a good environment for me to play and also develop as a player.” Head coach Tony Pulis said: “We’re delighted to add Serge to our options. “He is a top player and he will bring us quality in certain areas of the pitch.” Gnabry is unlikely to face Manchester City on Monday, though, as he lacks match fitness. Press Association The Baggies spent around £10million on Brown Ideye last summer but any outlay on Rondon would eclipse that. Ideye was close to leaving in January and any move for Rondon would cast doubt over his future at The Hawthorns. Victor Anichebe may also be surplus to requirements at the Baggies after an injury-plagued two years at the club. Venezuela international Rondon started his career at Aragua in his home country and has also played for Las Palmas, Malaga and Rubin Kazan. He joined Zenit in 2014 for a reported fee of around £16million. The Baggies host Manchester City on Monday, with Joleon Lescott a minor doubt against his former club after missing two days of training this week. The Baggies have also confirmed the signing of Arsenal’s Serge Gnabry on a season-long loan. The 20-year-old midfielder joins after missing the whole of last season with a knee injury. West Brom are ready to smash their transfer record for Zenit St Petersburg striker Salomon Rondon. The forward is believed to be in the country with Albion targeting the player, Press Association Sport understands. Albion are after further firepower despite signing Rickie Lambert from Liverpool to help Saido Berahino up front. last_img read more

Selectors name uncapped duo in Windies Women squad to face India

first_img… Still no place for Hayley MatthewsST JOHN’S, (CMC) – Leading opener Hayley Matthews has been left out of a 14-member West Indies squad to face touring India Women in the first two One-Day Internationals of the three-match series which bowls off here next Friday.The 21-year-old Barbadian was suspended last month just days before the start of Australia’s tour of the Caribbean for what Cricket West Indies (CWI) described as a breach of its Code of Conduct, and CMC Sports understands she is still not eligible to return to the side.The matter was subsequently referred to the CWI Disciplinary Tribunal but there has been no word on the outcome.Matthews, an elegant right-hander who bowls steady off-spin, has become a fixture in the international side and was a member of the squad which captured the T20 World title in India three years ago.Without her services, West Indies looked a shadow of themselves against Australia recently, suffering a 3-0 whitewash in both the one-day and T20 series.Fast bowler Shakera Selman who missed the Australia series with injury is again sidelined while no room has been found for her usual new-ball partner Shamilia Connell who managed just three wickets in six matches against the Aussies recently.Selectors have replaced them with uncapped seamer Shawnisha Hector and fast-bowling all-rounder Aaliyah Alleyne.“The selectors were impressed by the young medium pace duo of Aaliyah Alleyne and Shawnisha Hector during the training camp, meriting their inclusion in the final 14-member squad,” said newly-appointed lead selector, Anne Browne-John.The side will be led by Stafanie Taylor and includes experienced all-rounder Stacey-Ann King and Britney Cooper, with Chedean Nation and Shemaine Campbelle returning to the side after missing the Australia series through injury.However, highly-rated all-rounder Deandra Dottin has still not returned to full fitness following surgery earlier this year, and was not considered.Teenaged Guyanese pace bowler Shabika Gajnabi and 21-year-old off-spinner Sheneta Grimmond, both of whom debuted against Australia last month, have retained their spots.Browne-John, previously the team manager, said the side was a balanced one.“The selection panel chose a good balance of youth and experience when assembling this squad,” she noted.“We have the return of the experienced Chedean Nation and Shermaine Campbelle, who missed the last series against Australia due to injury.”The opening two ODIs will be played on November 1 and 3 at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium, with the final game scheduled for the same venue on November 6.SQUAD – Stafanie Taylor (captain), Anisa Mohammed (vice-captain), Aaliyah Alleyne, Afy Fletcher, Britney Cooper, Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Stacey-Ann King, Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean, Shabika Gajnabi, Shawnisha Hector, Shermaine Campbelle, Sheneta Grimmond.last_img read more

Hunt will replace Allen after first few series

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ On Tuesday, Tim Lester had the big reveal: Drew Allen would start at quarterback on Saturday at 4 p.m. against Wagner, but Terrel Hunt would play in Syracuse’s Carrier Dome opener.The quarterbacks coach didn’t yet have a sense of how the playing time would be split. Some suggested they would split halves. Another theory left it up to the flow of the game.On Thursday, head coach Scott Shafer cleared the air at his weekly press conference in Manley Field House. Shafer said that Allen will get the first handful of series, but Hunt will be involved early.“We’ll start with Drew and get him going in the first couple three series, and then I want to get Terrel in the mix early,” he said. “I look forward to seeing both of those kids improve that position.”Allen has started each of the Orange’s first two games this season and has thrown six interceptions to one touchdown. Hunt has played just 10 snaps — all on SU’s final drive against then-No. 19 Northwestern — and ran for a touchdown to cap it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAllen didn’t account for his first touchdown until the third quarter on Saturday.Shafer said the issue right now is a matter of consistency at the position. He’s seen some things he’s liked out of Allen, namely his completion percentage and how well he’s spread the ball around, but he has major issues in the one category that quarterbacks coach Tim Lester said on Tuesday is the one area they can’t be having problems.“We can’t have the turnovers,” Shafer said. “Turnovers will kill you.”Both Shafer and Lester said that Allen at times locks in on his receivers, but that it’s not the only source of the problem.Sometimes he stares down the wide receiver for the entirety of his route. Other times, Lester said, he just commits to one receiver and, even after the route doesn’t work out the way the coaches envision it, Allen tries to force it in.“I really need to see him do is understand that it’s OK to see a muddy picture and throw the check down,” Shafer said, “or is to have a muddy picture in front of you and throw the ball out of bounds.”Right now, Shafer said, Allen still holds a slight edge in terms of pure passing. He said Allen has a stronger arm and a quicker release, but that “Terrel has really improved in that area.”Hunt brings a different dimension. In just 10 snaps, he carried the ball three times for 30 yards and a touchdown. On his touchdown run, he missed an assignment, but was still able to scramble and turn it into a positive play.Hunt was originally recruited as a basketball player at Christ the King Regional High School in New York. He eventually gained his notoriety on the football field, but many of his instincts come from what he learned on the hardwood.Shafer doesn’t view the two quarterbacks as being that different, but that Hunt’s vision — especially as a runner — is still better than Allen’s right now.“I see his vision when he’s running the ball being a little bit stronger than Drew’s,” Shafer said. “I always think basketball players see things with a wide angle, in the run game especially.”What’s most impressed Shafer, though, is how stoic the two have been. “Don’t you change” is one of Shafer’s lesser-known catchphrases, but it’s something he frequently tells his players.Shafer saw both Allen and Hunt compete for the job in the summer without being rattled. Shafer praised Hunt for remaining focused and upbeat even after Allen started taking most of the first team reps.Now the burden has shifted to Allen. Hunt is cutting into his snaps with the first team, and both of their plays this weekend could determine the direction SU goes at quarterback for the rest of the season.“Neither of them have changed in their demeanor, which I think is a sign of maturity,” Shafer said. “They’ve both worked the same way they did when they were competing in the summer.” Comments Published on September 12, 2013 at 11:33 am Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2last_img read more

Men’s basketball recruit de-commits after scandal

first_imgAndy Enfield photographed by Brian Chin | Daily TrojanMen’s basketball recruit J’Raan Brooks announced his decision to decommit from USC and reopen his commitment on Twitter last Friday afternoon. “Due to unforeseen circumstances stemming from the recent news that has come to light in regards to the Trojan basketball program — I have decided to reopen my commitment to examine other available options,” Brooks said in his tweet. “While USC is still very much a possibility, the uncertainty of their situation has led me to believe I should reassess my own.” Brooks, a 6-foot-8 forward from Seattle, becomes the first of head coach Andy Enfield’s three 2018 recruits to decommit from the program just three weeks after news broke of an FBI investigation of assistant coach Tony Bland and multiple other Power Five basketball schools.While Brooks is staying away from USC for the time being, the Trojans are still an option for the four-star recruit in the future — if Enfield and the rest of his staff escape NCAA sanctions.“I have nothing but the utmost respect for Coach Enfield, the rest of the staff, the school and fans of the program,” Brooks said. “However, I need to make sure what I do is best for my future, and ensure I am making an informed decision, while seeing how this process transpires.”Brooks has been quiet regarding potential schools of interest since his announcement last weekend. Washington, a school just three miles north of where Brooks played high school ball at Garfield High, is in the hunt for Brooks, along with Pac-12 rivals Cal, Stanford and Washington State.The rest of the 2018 class, four-star recruits Taeshon Cherry and Kevin Porter, remain committed to USC for the time being despite the allegations surrounding Bland, the Trojans’ head basketball recruiter.Cherry, a 6-foot-8 forward from San Diego’s Saint Augustine High, decided to come to USC due to his close relationship with Bland.“I have a good relationship with Tony and Enfield,” Cherry said in an interview withScout.com. “Their style of play really fits my style of play, and it’s a perfect fit for me.” Cherry is listed as ESPN’s 22nd-best player in the 2018 class and announced his commitment just days after Brooks.Fellow Seattle resident Porter, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from local Rainier Beach, remains committed to USC despite offers from UCLA, Memphis and Washington, among others.For now, Enfield brings back most of his 2016-17 roster, along with three top 2017 recruits in Charles O’Bannon, Jr., Victor Uyaelunmo and Jordan Usher. But questions still remain for the Trojans come 2018 and beyond. Along with senior guards Jordan McLaughlin, Kurt Karis and Elijah Stewart, starting junior forwards Bennie Boatwright and Chimezie Metu are expected to leave school early to try their luck in next year’s NBA Draft.With starting jobs up for grabs in 2018, USC could potentially land another recruit in Brooks’ place if he decides to forgo Enfield’s offer. Of ESPN’s top 100 recruits for 2018, just three have signed letters of intent. Along with local five-star center Bol Bol, USC is still in the hunt for No. 1 overall prospect R.J. Barrett and four-star prospects Elijah Weaver, Khavon Moore and Kamaka Hepa. Considering both Bol and Barrett have fielded offers from top-flight programs like Kentucky and Arizona, USC would be more likely to land Weaver, Moore and Hepa if Brooks elects to sign with another team.If those targets aren’t interested, Enfield and company could potentially save that scholarship for a top player in the loaded 2019 class. While top overall recruit James Wiseman is likely to stay put in the southeast,11th-ranked shooting guard Cassius Stanley from Sierra Canyon or 16th-ranked forward Onyeka Okongwu from Chino Hills could be drifting toward USC. Regardless of undecided recruits in 2018 and 2019, USC awaits the verdicts in the FBI investigations with fingers crossed. The Trojans open their season at home against Cal State Fullerton on Nov. 10.last_img read more
