Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University, whose report appeared in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, studied a sample of North American and British rock and pop stars and concluded they are more than twice as likely to die a premature death as ordinary citizens of the same age. The team studied 1,064 stars from the rock, punk, rap, R&B, electronic and new age genres in the “All Time Top 1,000” albums published in 2000. They compared each artist’s age at death with that of European and U.S. citizens of similar backgrounds, sex and ethnicity. Mark Bellis, leader of the study, said his research showed the stereotype of rock stars was true – recreational drugs and alcohol-fueled parties take a toll. The report found that, between two and 25 years after the onset of fame, the risk of death was two to three times higher for music stars than for members of the general population matched for age, sex, nationality and ethnic background. In all, 100 of the stars studied had died – 7.3 percent of women and 9.6 percent of men. They included Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. The average age of death was 42 for North American stars and 35 for European stars. Long-term drug or alcohol problems accounted for more than one in four of the deaths, the study found. The first years of success are the most dangerous, with both British and American musicians three times more likely to die than the average person during that time. “Being a pop star is a crash-and-burn sort of lifestyle,” said rock journalist and broadcaster John Aizlewood. “If you go into it, you want adulation. You want to respond to the crowd. You can’t be a pop star in isolation. If you need that adulation, you obviously have other needs.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

For many arthritis sufferers, there has been a long and frustrating search for the best and safest pain relief. For some, the quest seemed to lead to a health store for supplements. But the largest and most rigorous study so far suggests the salve for mildly aching knees doesn’t lie there. The popular supplements glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate – once used even by President George W. Bush – were no better than dummy pills at pain relief, government researchers concluded. At the same time, the supplements did seem to help people with more severe arthritis, although more research is needed. “We still have a bit of a conundrum,” said Dr. Tim McAlindon, a Tufts University rheumatologist who had no role in the new study. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant The long-awaited research, funded by the National Institutes of Health, is the latest effort by the government to scrutinize these untested health remedies. Lead researcher Dr. Daniel Clegg of the University of Utah suggested that people with severe arthritis talk to their doctors about trying the supplements short-term to see whether they work. Dr. John Klippel, president of the Arthritis Foundation, said arthritis sufferers should not necessarily abandon glucosamine and chondroitin. “Supplements continue to be an important option for some people,” he said. “We’re reminding people there are lots of choices that people need to make, and supplements are one of them.” The foundation recommended that arthritis patients speak to their doctors about whether the combined supplements might help their overall treatment. Generally, arthritis patients are urged to exercise, keep their weight down and try hot and cold therapy, along with painkillers if needed. More than 20 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis. That number is expected to double in the next two decades as baby boomers age. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects the knees, hips, back and the small joints in the fingers. The search for pain relief helped boost worldwide sales of glucosamine and chondroitin to $1.7 billion last year, according to the Nutrition Business Journal, which tracks supplements. The supplements – made from animal cartilage and shellfish – have had even wider appeal amid safety concerns over certain painkillers, including the arthritis medicine Vioxx, which was yanked from the market in 2004. At least 5 million Americans use the two supplements either alone or together, government figures show. Bush has acknowledged taking the combination supplements to ease stiffness in his joints from running, but he no longer uses them. The supplements showed no known side effects during the government’s six-month study, but the scientists didn’t address the safety of longer-term use. The arthritis research, published in today’s New England Journal of Medicine, is the third major study in a year to find no overall benefit from some of the most popular nutritional supplements. Recently, research showed that the herb saw palmetto didn’t reduce symptoms of an enlarged prostate, and last year a study indicated that echinacea didn’t prevent or treat colds. Unlike drugs, such supplements are only loosely regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and their makers don’t have to prove the products are safe or effective. One consumer who plans to keep using the supplements is 72-year-old Irene Schwartzburt. She said the remedies relieved the “sticking pain” in her right knee when painkillers failed. “I want to stay active,” said the retired teacher from Plainview, N.Y. “The supplements work for me, so why not continue with them?” In the government study, 1,583 patients with arthritis knee pain received one of five treatments: either glucosamine or chondroitin, a combination of both, the painkiller Celebrex or dummy pills. Neither the doctors nor patients knew which treatment was given. After six months, patients filled out a questionnaire to determine how many felt a 20 percent reduction in pain. Researchers found that the supplements when taken alone or together were no more effective than dummy pills at pain relief. Sixty percent who took the dummy medication had reduced pain compared with 64 percent who took glucosamine, 65 percent who took chondroitin and 67 percent who took the combo pills. These differences were so small that they could have occurred by chance alone. The drug Celebrex did reduce pain – 70 percent reported improvement – affirming the study’s validity. However, the drug is being studied to see whether it’s safe for people at risk of heart problems. Of the 354 people with moderate to severe pain, 79 percent who took both supplements reported relief compared with 54 percent who took the dummy pills and 69 percent who took Celebrex. In a journal editorial, Dr. Marc Hochberg of the University of Maryland noted the study’s limitations: a high dropout rate (20 percent) and a whopping 60 percent who said the dummy pills made them feel better – double the usual placebo effect. Hochberg has received consulting fees from Pfizer Inc., which makes Celebrex, and Merck & Co., which made Vioxx. Clegg, the lead researcher, and 10 other scientists who worked on the study reported receiving fees or grant support from Pfizer or McNeil Consumer & Specialty Pharmaceuticals, which makes Tylenol. The Council for Responsible Nutrition, which represents dietary supplement makers, said it was pleased about the positive findings in the severe arthritis group. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BY CATHAL MacSUIBHNE, DONEGALDAILY.COM: The McKenna Cup has been put to bed for another year and now Donegal can firmly focus on training and catching up with the rest of the country in the fitness stakes.The experimentation continued in tonight’s final game of the competition with John O’Malley and Eoin McHugh making their debuts while Adi O’Gara, Pauric Carr and Michael Cannon, after brief cameos in the previous games, all made their first starts. O’Malley is well known for his senior exploits with Naomh Conaill and is likely destined for many more games in the county jersey. A huge honour too was bestowed on the Cloich Cheann Fhaola club, with Kevin McFadden skippering the All-Ireland Champions.The fact that a 3rd level side, in the form of Belfast teaching college St Marys, were the opposition meant Donegal’s newcomers enjoyed a bit more of a level playing field than in the previous exploits against Fermanagh and Monaghan. The lads were quick out of the blocks with Odhran MacNiallais doing the damage early on. The students found their feet though and in a high scoring affair they led by a point at the break. Caolan Ward and Kevin McFadden again impressed and with both players having played in different positions over the course of the competition, their versatility could be an asset to both Maxi Curran’s U21s and possibly Jim McGuinness’ senior squad.The high scoring continued after the change of ends; Donegal went on a scoring spree with five unasnwered points before Marys pegged it back to make it all square. There was some confusion between the score the referee had noted and that of the MacCumhaill Park scoreboard but in the end the record books will show a one point win for the hosts.The GAA season now goes up a notch with Kildare providing our next opponents in the league opener and it gives supporters an early opportunity to go back to the Graceland of Croke Park and relive some of those wonderful memories from September. From a playing point of view, following the switch of venue for the clash, it will do McGuinness’ troops no harm playing at Headquarters as opposed to Conleth’s Park in Newbridge – the players are obviously well used to it and any opportunity to play at the Mecca of football can only benefit a team.Jim spoke at the weekend of the training the team are undertaking now that their holiday is firmly in the past – Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday are all training days and the players will be glad to get back to the group dynamic and getting themselves prepared for what lies ahead. Last year McGuinness along with Adam Speer and the rest of the coaching staff got the entire panel in incredible shape and in our best moments of the Championship other teams simply couldn’t live with our relentless stamina. 2011 was a case of getting the players up to a decent level of fitness based on the individual needs of each player. Last year however, to a man the squad was operating at close to peak condition – bringing them back up to that level again while also managing the niggles and knocks, and a serious hip injury in Karl Lacey’s case, is the target over the next few months.Another goal of the management team will be to try to blend in those players who have shown well in this McKenna Cup campaign and there will be a few with an eye on at least a training spot with the panel and possibly more.It is critical for any team that wins the All-Ireland to have competition for places and to avoid having players resting on their laurels. Someone breathing down the neck of a man in possession of a Celtic Cross should drive him on to win another one.That’s all well in the future of course, for now its well done to the boys who’ve represented the jersey over the past week and all roads lead to Croker in a couple of weeks time.

Charlie McConalogue TDDonegal TD Charlie McConalogue has called on the public to engage in a new public consultation process aimed at identifying the best way forward for developing the Post Office network over the coming years.Deputy McConalogue made the comments following the publication of an Interim Report by the Post Office Network Business Development Group. The report, chaired by Bobby Kerr, has resulted in the establishment of a six week public consultation process.Deputy McConalogue commented, “I welcome publication of this important interim report. The Post Office Network Business Development Group has been tasked with identifying ways forward for ensuring we maintain a strong post office network across Ireland. “Some aspects of the report are encouraging and offer hope for communities across Ireland who rely on post offices to support community life. The report outlines that there is an opportunity for post offices to develop the services that they offer. However this can only occur if the Government decides to invest in our post offices. Unfortunately, to date, the Government has been eroding services at our post offices.“I am calling for the immediate withdrawal of the new Social Protection Forms that were issued by the Government last month. These forms undermine the post office network by encouraging people to migrate to banks when interacting with the Department of Social Protection. This move will seriously damage post offices over time by substantially reducing footfall. There is no basis to encourage people to move their transactions as post offices are providing a satisfactory service as it is, and with further Government encouragement these services can be improved.“I would encourage the public to engage with this new consultation process so that they can highlight the importance of the local post office to them. Consultation forms are available on the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources website. The consultation process will continue until the end of July and a final report from the Post Office Network Business Development Group is expected by September.“Fianna Fáil believes that post offices are an integral part of local communities, and we will be making a strong submission to highlight that the post office network should be developed rather than degraded,” said Deputy McConalogue.

1 September 2005South Africa’s national and international airports will be ready for the influx of visitors expected in South Africa for the 2010 Soccer World Cup long before the first game kicks off.This was the assurance given by Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) managing director Monhla Hlahla at Tuesday’s release of the company’s financial results for the year to end March 2005.Hlahla announced a capital expenditure budget of R5.2-billion to be spent over five years to accommodate the 2010 soccer World Cup. Work has already started.She said that almost half a billion rand had already been invested, primarily at the country’s three international airports, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.“This investment will increase significantly in the current financial year to R1.2-billion, and planned capital expenditure for 2005 to 2009 is R5.2-billion.“This will obviously include facility upgrades that are essential for 2010 but will largely be used to maintain world-class standards in aviation and tourism long after the curtain comes down on World Cup 2010,” she added.AccelerationHlahla, who was recently named South Africa’s businesswoman of the year, said that much of the infrastructural upgrade had been planned “long before South Africa won the rights to host the World Cup.“The awarding of the tournament to South Africa, however, has meant an acceleration and bringing forward of capital expenditure programmes planned for future regulatory cycles beyond 2010.”Hlahla said the experience of previous hosts indicated that the event would attract increased numbers of regional foreign visitors, not only during the weeks of the event itself but also in the months and years leading up to 2010.“Not only will Acsa airports have to be equipped to cope with the increased traffic demands, but they will also have to take account of future and long-term infrastructure requirements which go beyond the Soccer World Cup,” she said. “Our plans are built around long-term requirements and not specifically for the World Cup event.”Increased capacityJohannesburg International Airport will be the beneficiary of the bulk of the infrastructure upgrade.The airport’s central terminal development is being brought forward by two years and will cost an estimated R1.6-billion. This facility will also include a terminus for the Gautrain, a high-speed train which is to link the airport to Johannesburg, Sandton and Pretoria. Construction on the Gautrain is due to start in 2006.Other construction planned for the airport includes two multi-story parkades, additional aircraft parking aprons, and facilities for the new Airbus A380.The A380, which will carry up to 800 passengers is expected to be operating on the Johannesburg route by 2008.Cape Town and Durban International Airports will also be receiving upgrades to their terminals, parking and aircraft facilities.Upgrades and new facilities will not be limited to the international airports. A sum of R132-million will be invested in refurbishments at the national airports over the next five years, with provision for temporary facilities during the tournament itself.“Our goal is to have all development projects complete by 2010, so that there are no open construction sites at our facilities when the World Cup tournament is on,” Hlahla said.SouthAfrica.info reporter
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Weather forecasts are favorable for planting the next two weeks, so the market is expecting the 2017 corn will be planted easily. This news combined with positive long-term forecasts means the market is pulling back some, suggesting the possibility of another record corn crop.Funds reduced their length in bean futures and increased shorts in corn and wheat. If the weather forecasts change, funds may change positions providing upside potential. With 75 days left in the corn weather market, I will be surprised if there isn’t at least one weather scare before July. Market actionTwo weeks ago I moved some of my ’17 beans from Nov futures back to Aug futures. I thought there was a strong chance I could catch the inverse, then have it turn back to a profitable carry eventually. The market is shifting to what I expected would happen. Therefore, I’m moving another 20% of my ’17 crop with a similar trade. Of course, now the premium is lower. The roll back was only 3 cents this week, when it was 15 cents two weeks ago.Basically, now at most I can make 25 cents on this trade with downside risk of 35 to 40 cents. Two weeks ago the profit potential was 30 cents with a downside closer to 20 cents. Knowing this I bought a calendar spread option (CSO). What does this mean?In this case, I bought the Jul/Nov Even (or 0) CSO for 7.5 cents (note, the even spread is the strike price of the option). Essentially, I think that the spread between the Jul and Nov bean futures (on Jun 23) will be the same or Nov will be higher (a carry).If this happens, I can roll my Nov futures back to July, then roll it forward to Aug, then Sep, then Nov taking a carry worth potentially 25 cents.If it doesn’t happen, the spread becomes a much wider inverse, then I don’t make the futures shift and I’m only out 7.5 cents.In other words, I’m risking 7.5 cents to try and make 25 cents. Why did I do this?Like all farmers I want bean prices to go higher, but for a significant increase in futures it will require a surprise supply disruption before July. This seems very unlikely given current conditions in South America. If prices stay the same or go lower with heavy global supply, the market will have to pay someone to store the beans (i.e. a carry) until they are needed. It could be a consolation prize if the market continue their downward or even a sideways trend in soybeans.Per my usual marketing strategy, this isn’t a “home run” type of trade. It’s a potential base hit. But with what I know today, I think there is very good chance beans will move from an inverse to a carry and I’m willing to risk losing 7.5 cents to make 25 cents on this highly reasonable outcome. Lifting hedgesRecently a farmer asked me if I like to “lift hedges” if the market moves lower and has the possibility of bottoming out. The short and simple answer is no, I don’t lift hedges. “Lifting hedges” is code for speculating. I don’t want to be a speculator with my marketing program. I have hedges in place so I know exactly where my grain is marketed. Additionally, my banker is completely on board with my program, and the last thing they want me doing is speculating. My banker trusts I am doing sound marketing that minimizes risk. I never want to violate that trust. How big of a hedging line do I need?A new client was surprised to find they received a hedge line with their bank that was bigger than their operating loan. While the farmer may never need more than 25% of the hedge line, the rest is available should a large margin call be needed. The bigger surprise to my new client: the banker was completely supportive of the large hedging line. This banker understood “risk off hedging” and what was needed to make it successful.It helped the banker had followed my marketing strategy for many years and felt comfortable with their clients taking advantage of opportunity. However, I find most bankers understand hedging and prefer clients use proper hedging techniques versus speculating. I always speak with new clients’ bankers before starting a marketing program so I can verify the client and their banker are on the same page. I never want surprises down the road when margin calls accumulate. As a hedger I don’t fear margin calls, and neither does my banker. Why are few farmers doing “risk off hedging”?Speaking with bankers, few farmers are taking advantage of this kind of marketing strategy. “Risk off hedging” isn’t sexy or exciting. It’s boring and safe, which unfortunately is not something most people like to participate in. However, boring and safe helps me sleep at night and understand/realize future farm operation profits.Be cautious of advice that suggests lifting hedges. It might turn out to be great advice, but remember you have another crop coming in less than a year that will need to be marketed. Adding more pressure to sell additional bushels in an uncertain market puts farmers in a risky position.
