MORE: Tony Smith’s beachfront home sells for record $25m The McCarthy family outside the Benowa Waters home they built 15 years ago. Picture Glenn Hampson Build a dream home to go with the man cave on the only vacant block for sale in the area.Located on one of Benowa Waters’ more sought-after streets, the block is also one of only three vacant lots in the area and the only one that is currently for sale. “It’s a premium offering,” said Ms Moffrey, who is seeking offers of around $1.5 million.“The block is north to water and it’s the only block without a house in Benowa Waters that is for sale, so it’s quite rare.”“If you built up, you would have skyline views, so it’s got a lot to offer.” Buy a mansion for $5.9m, get a free cruiser The temperature-controlled cellar houses 25,000 bottles of fine wine.While a tennis court occupies the majority of the 742sq m block at 66 Charolais Crescent, the designer man cave has everything a respectable bloke might want when needing a little ‘he time’.The property is owned by Pat and Penelope McCarthy, who founded Australia’s first perfume chain, Perfume Connection, in 1993. From one store in Bundall, they grew the enterprise into a nationwide 70-store chain before selling in 2007.

Religious women use contraception regularly, report says

first_img Share 28 Views   no discussions FaithLifestyle Religious women use contraception regularly, report says by: – April 14, 2011 Share Most sexually active women use contraception, regardless of their religious beliefs, says a report from the Guttmacher Institute, an organization working to advance reproductive and sexual health  in the U.S. and worldwide.“Regardless of religious affiliation, the majority of women use highly effective contraception methods, so any efforts to restrict access to these methods is going to impact these populations,” said Rachel K. Jones, the lead author.The report was based on a U.S. government survey that represented the nation. The data came from 2006-2008 interviews of over 7,000 women aged 15-44.It found that 69% of sexually active women from any denomination were using highly effective birth control methods including sterilization, the pill or other hormonal method, or an intrauterine device (IUD). In addition, almost all have reported contraceptive use at some point, a figure that is similar among Catholic women.Another key finding was that 68% of Catholics use one of the highly effective methods, but only 2% rely on natural family planning. That number is comparable to 73% of Mainline Protestants and 74% of Evangelicals.“A lot of times, religion is either not associated with contraception at all, or, in the case of the Catholic church, being against contraception.” Jones added. “In the real world, women who have religious beliefs and who attend church also use contraception.”In addition, male or female sterilization was most common in the Evangelical church; more than four in 10 women of this denomination use the method.And marital status did not change things.“Across religious denominations, married women are using highly effective contraceptive methods,” she said.Said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, “These findings show yet again that birth control is a common practice — and a common need — for women of different faiths and backgrounds.“As Congress considers yet another effort to bar Planned Parenthood from providing family planning services through federal health programs, it should listen to the message these findings convey.”CNN Newscenter_img Share Tweet Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Ministry of Health embarks on study to determine Trans Fatty Acid content processed foods in Dominica

Posted on by

first_imgLocalNews Ministry of Health embarks on study to determine Trans Fatty Acid content processed foods in Dominica by: – January 23, 2012 Tweet Photo credit: nim-nih.govThe Ministry of Health in collaboration with the Caribbean Food & Nutrition Institute will be conducting a study to determine the Trans Fatty Acid content of processed foods commonly eaten by the urban population in Dominica. The study will be conducted in two phases during the period mid-January to the end of March 2012. In the first phase, interviews will be conducted with a sample of adults to determine frequently consumed food sources of Trans fatty acids.Foods of interest include: butter/ margarines, edible oils, biscuits/cookies, snack products, fast-foods from transnational chains and local restaurants, and bakery products.In the second phase of the study, samples of the most frequently consumed types of each product will be collected from points of purchase and subsequently analyzed to determine their fatty acid content. For the purposes of the study, data will be collected from a sample of healthy adults (males and females), between 30 to 60 years, living in areas from Fond Cole to Loubiere, including the Roseau Valley. Parents and guardians living in the above mentioned areas will receive a letter seeking and confirming their interest in the study.The study sample will be randomly chosen from the list of consenting persons who will be interviewed. The information collected will be kept confidential.Trans Fatty Acids, also referred to as Trans fats, are a type of fat that occurs naturally in some foods, especially foods from animals. But most of the Trans fats in our diet are artificially produced and come from processed foods. Research studies show that artificially produced Trans fat in the diet can increase the risk of developing heart disease by increasing the concentration in the blood of unhealthy low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and lowering the levels of healthy high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. After the special summit on Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases (CNCDs) in 2007, the Heads of Government, in the Declaration of Port of Spain, recorded their strong support for the elimination of Trans fats from the diet of citizens. At present, the Trans fat content of typically consumed foods in Caribbean countries is unknown. The study is aimed at assessing the trans fatty acid content of commonly consumed processed foods, and the frequency of their consumption.The information gathered through this study will be used for developing policies and strategies geared towards reducing the risk of developing chronic non-communicable diseases.The Ministry of Health urges eligible persons to participate in this important study which is the first of its kind to be carried out in the Eastern Caribbean.Press ReleaseHealth Promotion Resource Centre Share 6 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring!

first_imgThe Batesville Middle School 7th grade boys lost to their crosstown rival St. Louis on Monday night 27-17.The Bulldogs came out and played with great intensity for the entire game. Batesville played some great defense overall, but had trouble getting shots to fall on offense and had some costly turnovers that put them in a hole and the Cardinals came away with a 27 to 17 victory.Batesville was led by Calvin Sherwood with 5 points, RJ Powell with 4 points, Mason Barker and Damon Grieshop with 3 points each and Ethan Brewer had 2 points.

The Cardinals played an aggressive defense against Batesville preventing the Bulldogs from any wide open looks. Batesville played tough on defense as well especially with their full court press which created some key turnovers. The Cardinals were led defensively by Sam Voegele and LLeyton Ratcliffe as they came up with big rebounds all night. Andrew Oesterling also played well defensively as he came up with several big steals for the Cardinals.On offense, Kurt Siefert, who has been one of the Cardinals most reliable shooters all season, hit a much needed three pointer mid-way through the 2nd quarter to help give the Cardinals a 13-6 lead at half time. In the 3rd quarter, the Bulldogs got a couple big three pointers from Mason Barker and Damon Grieshop which seemed to ignite the Bulldogs but the Cardinals got a big basket of their own when Oesterling knocked one in from outside the arc. The 3rd quarter was played almost evenly as St. Louis outscored Batesville by just a point to take a 22-14 lead going into the 4th quarter. In the fourth quarter, the Cardinals slowed the game down and kept the Bulldogs from making any kind of run allowing the Cardinals to win the game by the final score of 27 – 14.The scoring for Batesville had Barker with 3, Greishop 3, Calvin Sherwood 5, RJ Powell 4 and Ethan Brewer had 2. For the Cardinals, Siefert had 4, Wil Freeland 2, Oesterling 13, Ratcliff 6 and Voegele had 2.The next game for the Cardinals is this Wednesday at 6:00 against St. Bartholomew’s of Columbus.Courtesy of Cardinals Coach Jim Oesterling.Batesville won the 8th Grade battle 46-24.  Batesville improves to 5-3Batesville Individual Stats:  Seth Gausman 8 pts, 3 rbs, 8 ast, 3 stl; Clayton Grunkemeyer 1 rb; Shane Meer1 rb, 1 deflection (defl); Colt Meyer 12 pts, 1 rb, 1 ast, 6 stl, 2 defl, 1 block; Drew Kiefer 1 rb, 1 ast, 1 stl, 1 defl; Brayden Linkel 2 rb, 3 defl; John Thompson 4 pts, 2 rbs, 1 ast, 1 stl, 1 defl, 1 block; Bill Lynam 8 pts, 6 rbs, 1 ast, 1 stl, 1 defl; Cory Ralston 6 pts, 1 rb, 2 stl, 2 defl; Alex Smith 1ast, 1 defl; Dempsy Bohman 4 pts, 5 rbs, 1 defl; and Jake Cruse 4 pts, 2 rbs, 1 ast, 1 defl.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach.Chris Bradfordlast_img read more

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants more bravery after Norwich draw

Posted on by

first_img Despite Danny Ings’ first goal for the club after coming on at half-time the Reds could not hang on to their advantage with Russell Martin equalising after a mistake by goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, as the Norwich man made a mockery of spending the morning with his wife who gave birth to their third child in Norfolk It was a second successive poor performance at home after the 3-0 defeat to West Ham and with this game signalling the start of four Anfield games in 11 days Rodgers knows they have to start making their home advantage count. “We have got these four games here to get our performance level to where we want them to be,” he said. “Anfield is it is a real special place to play. You have to have courage and bravery to play here. “There is a great history but embrace it. You have to play positive football. “There was a feeling of anxiety when I came in. We made it a fortress. Now we are having to build it again. “I am disappointed and frustrated with the result but I thought the second half there were more signs of fluency and creativity. “We were a bit static when we had the ball in decent positions, the movement in front of the ball wasn’t what we would like. “Second half we freed ourselves up. Danny Ings came on and was outstanding, his ability running in behind was there to see. “It was important to get the first goal, we did, but lost our concentration for their goal. Press Association “We lost concentration and Russell Martin hooks it in so that shouldn’t happen.” On the positive front Daniel Sturridge returned after more than five months out after a hip operation while the displays of Ings and wing-back Alberto Moreno, making his first start of the season, were encouraging. Much has been pinned on the significance of Sturridge’s comeback but Rodgers cautioned expecting too much, too soon. “He is a way off full fitness. His presence and stature will give us something. It is about building his fitness. There is no pressure on him to do that,” he added. Norwich boss Alex Neil was happy with the result, which could have been even better had Mignolet not redeemed himself somewhat with a good save from Matt Jarvis. “I am pleased. Not just with the result, I thought the performance was good,” he said. “We were brave, tried to put our foot on the ball. You need to ride your luck and rely on your goalkeeper, who made some great saves but we could have nicked it at the end when Matt Jarvis had his chance. “I thought we deserved a draw.” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits his side have to play with more bravery at home after another Anfield disappointment. last_img read more
