When to buy a racer Racing Shoes will not benefit everyone. The lighter weight will help you run faster, but you sacrifice protection. For many people the loss of cushioning and stability will slow them down mo re than any advantage they gained with a lighter shoe. There are many different types of racing shoes with different amounts of support. What you need to do is determine if you are the kind of runner who could benefit from racers and then find the best shoe to suit you. WHY RACERS WORK: One of the main reasons racing shoes work is that they do not offer much shock absorption, so the energy from your stride can be directly transferred to the ground. You run faster but receive much more muscle damage. A 10 gram difference in weight will add up to 100 kilograms of what you have to lift over a 10km race. Your feet are the part of your body that moves the most when you run so weight in this area has a much greater effect then weight closer to your centre of gravity. Because racing shoes are lighter they are less supportive and more flexible. The faster you run the more your running form improves so the less support you need. Racing shoes help you run faster because you do not have to fight the support of the shoe as you push off the ground. WHO NEEDS AS RACER: I generally do not recommend racing shoes to anyone running slower then 4:30/km, that is 45 minutes for 10km and 3:10 for the marathon. However if slower runners have good form and don’t get injured then they may be able to use them. Conversely some faster runners have such bad problems they should never wear them. If you are aiming to run a 4 hour Marathon then the advantage you get from wearing an ultralight racer is far outweighed by the extra damage caused by the lost cushioning and stability. Slower, or larger runners wanting a race day advantage should consider one of the many racer/trainers that are available. These shoes offer lighter weight but without sacrificing all the cushioning, stability or durability. They are also ideal for your brisker runs or speedwork.

Ultrasound is used to precisely guide the injection of adipose-derived stem cells into the suspensory ligament. The still-developing technology of stem cell therapy, which uses unspecified cells from the horse’s body, has the potential to help racehorses heal sounder than ever before. A tendon is a bundle of elastic fibers, mostly made of collagen, that attaches muscle to bone and helps move the skeleton. Ligaments are similar but attach bone to bone and provide stability. When a horse bows a tendon, it tears the fibers at a certain point of the tendon (the location results in a name, such as high or low bow), weakening it significantly. When the tendon begins to knit back together, it is significantly hampered by lack of blood flow. Blood provides several healing mechanisms, including adult stem cells, which are able to convert themselves into specific types of cells the body needs to heal itself (in this case, tendon cells). If the tendon does not get enough help, it eventually develops scar tissue, which weakens the tendon because it is nonelastic and haphazardly knitted together. The injury takes a long time to heal – a typical racetrack cure was pinfiring or blistering, followed by six months to a year of turnout. If a horse was brought back to the track and the tendon had mostly healed with scar tissue, the weakened tendon could give way and the injury recur.
STEM CELLS AND CEREBRAL PALSY Cerebral palsy (CP) is an umbrella term which includes several forms and levels of nonprogressive brain-related injury, which cause limitations in muscle control, movement and mobility (known as neuromotor impairment) and other symptoms that lead to physical disability. CP is caused by many factors, and can include infection before birth, premature birth and lack of oxygen around the time of birth. It is thought that the major common feature in CP is a lack of blood and oxygen to the brain during fetal development and/or delivery, known as a hypoxic-ischemic insult. The cells most vulnerable to this hypoxic-ischemic insult are oligodendrocytes, the support cells that wrap nerve cells (or neurons) with a protective white fat called myelin, hence the term white matter of the brain. Because of this myelin, neurons can send electrical signals efficiently throughout the body. Once oligodendrocytes die, the neurons are no longer protected and they eventually die. If myelin could be replaced before neurons die, neurons could be spared and motor impairments could be lessened. For this reason, scientists are investigating whether lost oligodendrocytes can be replaced with stem cells. Stem cells are unspecialized cells which can become specialized cells such as brain cells, heart cells or muscle cells. The process of developing into a specialized cell is known as differentiation. Stem cells can also multiply over and over again, a process known as proliferation. During the process of proliferation the stem cell either remains unspecialized or, under the right condition, can become a specialized cell such as a brain cell. Replacing neurons themselves would be like trying to rewire a giant switchboard with tens of thousands of ports but no labels, where improper connections could lead to pain. It is for this reason that the aim of many cell transplantation strategies now being tested is to replace lost oligodendrocytes rather than to make and successfully connect new neurons. Recent decades have seen advances in our knowledge of how to study and use stem cells. It is expected we will develop ways to transplant stem cells into damaged tissues to treat and cure injury and diseases like CP. From Mice to Humans...
The United States supports international financial assistance for global climate change initiatives in developing countries. Under the Obama Administration, this assistance has been articulated primarily as the Global Climate Change Initiative (GCCI), a platform within the President’s 2010 Policy Directive on Global Development. The GCCI aims to integrate climate change considerations into U.S. foreign assistance through a range of bilateral, multilateral, and private sector mechanisms to promote sustainable and climate-resilient societies, foster low-carbon growth, and reduce emissions from deforestation and land degradation. The GCCI is implemented through programs at three “core” agencies: the Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Most GCCI activities at USAID are implemented through the agency’s bilateral development assistance programs. Many of the GCCI activities at the Department of State and the Department of the Treasury are implemented through international organizations, including the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Least Developed Country Fund and Special Climate Change Fund, as well as multilateral financial institutions such as the Global Environment Facility, the Clean Technology Fund, and the Strategic Climate Fund. The GCCI is funded through the Administration’s Executive Budget, Function 150 account, for State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs. Congress is responsible for several activities in regard to the GCCI, including (1) authorizing periodic appropriations for federal agency programs and multilateral fund contributions, (2) enacting those appropriations, (3) providing guidance to the agencies, and (4) overseeing U.S. interests in the programs and the multilateral funds. Recent budget authority for the GCCI was $323 million in FY2009, $945 million in FY2010, $819 million in FY2011, and $858 million in FY2012, and has been enacted through legislation including the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (H.R. 1105; P.L. 111-8); the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (H.R. 3288; P.L. 111117); the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2010 (H.R. 4899; P.L. 111-212); the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (H.R. 1473; P.L. 112-10); and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (H.R. 2055; P.L. 112-74).

CAULIFLOWER STEAK >> 1 cauliflower yields approx 3 “steaks” Ingredients: 1 head of cauliflower Olive oil Kosher salt (table salt or sea salt or whatever you have) Pepper Chopped handful of parsley (optional) © Disney Take 1 head of cauliflower and clean off all leaves from the bottom. Cut off the stalk, so that it’s flush with the rest of the cauliflower body. Take the cauliflower and place on its side so that the stalk is in front of you horizontally. Take a sharp knife and cut the cauliflower through its body, so that you are making crosssections of pieces. Once cut, the stalk is in the middle holding all florets together It’s ok if when cutting, some of the florets come loose, you can roast those pieces later. Once you have all your “steaks” cut, place them on a roasting tray. Drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper and chopped parsley if you have, or even like it! Rub the steaks all over on both sides. Heat BBQ / grill on medium/high heat. Place “steaks” on grill and begin to cook approx 3-5 minutes on each side. They should have nice grill marks on both sides. Once all steaks are done, insert a fork to check that they are tender. Place back on roasting tray and cover with foil, sealing all edges. The heat from the steaks sealed in the foil will continue to cook the steaks until they become nice and tender. That’s it! You’re done! So easy you’re laughing!! DisneyJunior.com/ThatsFresh
