Accessed January 27, 2019. by Sarah Pittman, Dietetic InternFinding products that are gluten free used to be such a hard task. But with people being more aware of gluten in their diets (celiac and non celiac people alike) as well as the FDA stepping in on the manner, it has made finding gluten in food and non-food products much easier.“On August 2, 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its long-awaited gluten-free food labeling rule. According to the rule, when a manufacturer chooses to put “gluten-free” on food packaging, the item must comply with the new FDA definition of the term – less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten”4.When patients with celiac disease eat gluten it can cause abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, rash, or heartburn1.  Even if not consumed directly, cross contamination can occur with gluten. It only takes 10 mg to potentially cause problems in patients with celiac disease5.Cross contamination can happen by: Putting gluten free bread in a toaster that has had non-gluten free bread in itUsing sponges to clean dishes that have also been used to clean dishes of gluten productsUsing cutting boards that have been used with gluten products2 Any product that may come in contact with the mouth and in turn be ingested needs to be gluten free for people with celiac disease. But not all products are labeled gluten free, so how do you know if it contains gluten?Some of the best ways to know if a product is gluten free is by: Calling the manufacturer and asking if the product contains gluten or if there is possible cross-contamination of glutenRead ALL the ingredients on the productCheck out glutenfreedrugs.com on medications that include gluten6Some brands that have gluten-free hair care/bath and body products include:AcureAvalon OrganicsDesert EsenceDovePaul MitchellSuave3 Do you know of any other brands that have gluten-free options? 10 Fast Facts About the FDA Gluten-Free Labeling Rule | Celiac Disease Foundation.

Appeals by 45 Russian Athletes Against Olympic Bans Rejected

first_imgPYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — Russia’s desperate attempt to get 45 banned athletes — including several medal favorites — into the Pyeongchang Olympics failed just hours before Friday’s opening ceremony.The International Olympic Committee had banned Russia because of a massive doping scheme at the 2014 Sochi Games, but gave individual athletes the chance to apply for admission to compete as “Olympic Athletes from Russia.” There were 168 Russians who passed the vetting process. Dozens more filed appeals with the Court of Arbitration for Sport.On Friday, the court upheld the IOC’s right to decide who can compete.Anti-doping officials praised the ruling, which is a heavy blow to Russian medal chances.“That’s it. The story is over,” Russian delegation spokesman Konstantin Vybornov said.After two days of hearings, the CAS panel ruled that the commissions that evaluated whether Russian applicants were eligible did not act in a “discriminatory, arbitrary or unfair manner.”CAS secretary general Matthieu Reeb read from a statement and declined to take questions, saying the IOC process “could not be described as a sanction but rather as an eligibility decision.”The IOC and the World Anti-Doping Agency welcomed the decision. The IOC said the decision “supports the fight against doping and brings clarity for all athletes.”WADA president Craig Reedie described it as “absolutely correct.”Among those excluded are six-time gold medalist Viktor Ahn, the short track speedskater whose return to his native South Korea for the Olympics had been eagerly anticipated by local fans.Also out are cross-country skiing gold medalist Alexander Legkov and skeleton gold medalist Alexander Tretiakov, as well as potential medal contenders in biathlon, luge and bobsled.Three former NHL players — Sergei Plotnikov, Anton Belov and Valeri Nichushkin — also lost appeals, though it was widely considered unlikely they would have played even if they had been successful because the Russian roster is already full.U.S. Anti-Doping Agency chief executive Travis Tygart said the decision was “a small glimmer of hope in an otherwise dark and sordid affair.”“You hope justice has been served but how some of these athletes can keep dirty medals from Sochi but be excluded now is hard to reconcile,” Tygart said. “And why the IOC rushed the process on the Sochi medal decisions is unexplainable and a tragedy for clean athletes.”In a telephone interview, Reedie told The Associated Press: “I am delighted at the decision and the way they expressed it.”“They have quite clearly understood that there was systemic manipulation of the anti-doping process,” Reedie said. “It means the games can proceed. Athletes can get their heads down and go. This particular issue is now behind us.”The IOC’s vetting process was designed to exclude Russian athletes from the games if IOC officials weren’t sure they were clean, even if they hadn’t been banned for doping.The “Olympic Athletes from Russia” will compete in neutral uniforms under the Olympic flag in a decision designed to balance the rights of individual athletes with the need for a strong deterrent to doping.As well as the 45 athletes, the ruling covers a luge coach and a skeleton coach.The IOC has refused to comment on individual Russian athletes but says it decided who to exclude using a newly obtained Moscow laboratory database with evidence of past doping offenses.It refused to clear some Russians even after their disqualifications from the 2014 Olympics were lifted by CAS last week.Stephen Hess, an international sports lawyer based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, said the decision was a victory for the IOC.“There is no absolute right to get an invitation from the IOC to come to the Olympics,” Hess said in a telephone interview. “That was within the IOC’s discretion, and they didn’t exercise it arbitrarily. If Russia had an Olympic team, CAS might have said: ‘IOC, the Russians can put them on their own team. You can’t keep them out.’ But Russia doesn’t have an Olympic team.”Jim Walden, the lawyer for Russian whistleblower Grigory Rodchenkov, renewed calls for IOC President Thomas Bach to resign “for the sake of the Olympic ideal.”Walden has accused the IOC and CAS of being “complicit in enabling Russian doping” for not implementing strong punishments for Russian athletes, including a blanket ban.Friday’s verdict, he said, is “a small semblance of justice for clean athletes.”Angela Ruggiero of the IOC athletes’ commission said the decision provided clarity for all competitors.“The message we’re sending to athletes now is, the decision’s been made, you should be incredibly confident that every athlete, including the Olympic Athletes from Russia, have had to clear incredibly high hurdles to get here,” Ruggiero said.U.S. athletes also welcomed the end to uncertainty around the participation of some Russian athletes.“That is great news,” said U.S. women’s skeleton athlete Katie Uhlaender, who placed fourth in the Sochi Olympics — one spot behind bronze medalist Elena Nikitina, who was one of the 45 appealing her ban.U.S. bobsledder Nick Cunningham said he has tried to not focus on the will-they-or-won’t-they drama surrounding the Russians.“If dirty athletes are taken out, then clean athletes will prevail,” Cunningham said. “That’s what I hope.”___By JAMES ELLINGWORTHAP Sports Writers Stephen Wade, Tim Reynolds and Eddie Pells contributed to this report.

Netherlands need Barcelona-like World Cup miracle

But with the Swedes enjoying a goal difference of +6 over the Dutch – and expected to beat Luxembourg handsomely – the likelihood is that Dick Advocaat’s men will, in order to make the playoffs, have to rack up a huge win over Sweden when they host them on the final matchday on Tuesday.

I give us maybe a five per cent chance to qualify for the World Cup,” ex-Barca ace De Boer told Goal at the ASPIRE4SPORT Congress at Stamford Bridge.”We will play Belarus. It is not easy to play over there. History tells us we always have problems there. Let’s say we win 1-0 or 2-0, Sweden are playing at home against Luxembourg and I believe they can score four goals at least.”That would mean we have to probably beat Sweden 5-0 or 6-0 in Amsterdam [on Tuesday].”Everything is possible.

The result may indicate that businesses are optimistic about future sales.Sales in May were up 0.4 per cent following gains in March and April. Before March, sales had posted seven straight monthly declines.Economists are forecasting sales to keep rebounding in the second half of this year and that consumer spending will help lift overall economic growth. However, a separate report Tuesday showed that retail sales in June fell 0.3 per cent as consumers cut back their spending at stores and restaurants.Despite the disappointing retail sales result, which followed a robust 1 per cent gain in May, analysts said they are still hopeful that consumers will ramp up their spending in coming months based on rising incomes from strong job gains over the past year.The economy went into reverse in the first quarter, shrinking at an annual rate of 0.2 per cent. That decline in the gross domestic product was the result of an unusually harsh winter that kept consumers away from shopping malls and disrupted other economic activity as well.Analysts are forecasting a bounce back in the April-June period to 2.5 per cent growth.The increase in stockpiles in May left inventories at a seasonally adjusted $1.8 trillion, an increase of 2.4 per cent from May 2014. read more

Judgeordered report into Cairo protest doesnt name or identify Ibrahim Halawa

However, that trial has been delayedOmaima, Fatima, Soumaya and Ibrahim Halawa were all arrested at the protest three days after the Rabaa al-Adawiya massacre on 17 August 2013.Fatima, Ibrahim’s older sister, told Saturday with Claire Byrne in January that they chose to attend the protest “on the spur of the moment” to remember those who had been killed in the Egyptian uprising and subsequent massacre.“We went to Egypt every single year as far as I can remember to visit extended relatives, it was something our parents wanted us to do. To keep contact with our extended relatives and family members,” she said.She acknowledged that Ibrahim spoke at the sit-in at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square but says their attendance was not political or pre-planned but was about remembering those who were killed.TrialIbrahim Halawa faces another trial date – his 20th – tomorrow. The Egyptian authorities have chosen to try Halawa in a mass trial along with almost 500 other people, a decision that has led to the repeated postponements.Part of the case will focus on a technical report prepared last July by the Egyptian Ministry of Interior for the Court of Appeal in Cairo.The report, seen by TheJournal.ie, focuses on nine exhibits of evidence – videos and photos – taken on the day that Halawa was arrested. It says the video clips are “of a high quality and taken both inside and outside Al-Fath mosque”.It says that a printout of 300 photos was taken from video clips, but says that only two people were identified: Saber Eid Ahmed and Salah El-Din Abd El-Halim Morsi. The report doesn’t mention Halawa or any of the other 300 people arrested at the protest.It says:We were not able to confirm the suspicion of the other accused among the large crowd of people appearing in the video recordings and the digital images contained in the exhibits subject of investigation.Colm O’Gorman, Executive Director of Amnesty International Ireland says that Halawa must be released.“Ibrahim’s innocence has been further vindicated by Egypt’s own legal system, which following a technical review of audio-video material presented in the case, found no evidence against him. It tallies with what Amnesty researchers on the ground at the time assert, that Ibrahim was in al-Fath mosque and could not have committed the violent crimes with which he has been charged.“Amnesty International also conducted a thorough, independent review of the prosecution evidence. It is surely now beyond question that Ibrahim was arrested solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of assembly and expression. Ibrahim is a prisoner of conscience. His continuing imprisonment represents an inexcusable violation of both international and Egyptian law.“We reiterate our call for his immediate and unconditional release.”Earlier, cabinet approved a plan to send an independent medical expert to the Egyptian capital to examine Halawa.Read: ‘His spirit is finally broken’: MEP claims Ibrahim Halawa is ‘being kept alive by glucose injections’ http://jrnl.ie/3299758 Judge-ordered report into Cairo protest doesn’t name or identify Ibrahim Halawa Halawa faces another trial date – his 20th – tomorrow.

first_img Late Tuesday night, GO Ms. Tree, a SpaceX boat, caught half of the nose cone of its Falcon 9 rocket for the second time and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk posted the cool “save at sea” footage on Twitter.For the last 18 months, SpaceX has made catching fairings a major priority for space missions, The Verge reported. Fairings, structures that surround payloads and satellites that Falcon 9 rockets carry, protect these important objects during launches. Even though they typically break into two in space, descend back to Earth, and aren’t always retrieved, Musk said the company does the opposite.Rocket fairing falls from space & is caught by Ms Tree boat pic.twitter.com/nJv0Ry1iKk— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 7, 2019“Imagine you had $6 million in cash in a palette flying through the air, and it’s going to smash into the ocean,” Musk explained at a 2018 press conference. “Would you try to recover that? Yes. Yes, you would.”Liftoff! pic.twitter.com/garh1LldtF— SpaceX (@SpaceX) August 6, 2019Tuesday’s video, which was shared to Twitter, shows the fairing gently landing into the SpaceX boat’s net in the Atlantic Ocean. The fairing fell from the sky roughly 75 minutes after the Amos-17 communications satellite launched atop the Falcon 9 rocket, Space.com noted. Formerly called Mr. Steven, GO Ms. Tree, the SpaceX boat, helps protect the fairing from saltwater, which could deteriorate its structure and make it difficult to reuse in the future.On Aug. 6, the Amos-17 satellite and Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station around 7:23 p.m. EST. The Amos-17 satellite will provide satellite communication services to Africa, according to the mission’s webpage. There wasn’t a third landing for the Falcon 9 rocket, since Amos-17 was a big satellite that needed to reach a very far orbit, resulting in the booster not having enough fuel left over to safely return to our planet.More on Geek.com:SpaceX Launches Amos-17 Communications Satellite on Aug. 6NASA Taps SpaceX, Blue Origin to Boost Space TechWatch: SpaceX Rocket Creates Sonic Booms During Descent ESA Satellite Avoids Potential Collision With SpaceX Starlink CraftSpaceX’s Starhopper Aces Final Test Flight in Texas Stay on targetlast_img read more
