Keep-up with your daily nutritional value in lockdown

first_imgIt’s been so long since we all have been under the quarantine. The effects of this can be seen not only on the work but also on our health. Senior citizens who used to go for a walk in the early morning won’t be able to do so not to mention those who were an active gym freak. So here I am going to share some tips and tricks that will help you to maintain and reach your ideal goal while helping to boost your immunity in order to fight coronavirus.As you might have guessed this quarantine period won’t be till 17th May even after this we have to take precautions such as avoiding public gathering and many other outdoor activities. By following these food options consistently you can definitely reduce and avoid blubber around your stomach and body.Start your day with 2 tablespoons of aloe vera and amla juice in the morning with an empty stomach. I know this remedy is followed by many Indian mostly senior citizens but by adding this in your daily food intake you will be a lot more beneficial. Aloe vera and amla helps to boost your metabolism i.e. food will digest more quickly in your body. It also helps white blood cells to fight viruses and bacteria in your body.Instead of eating paratha with curd try something healthier option like Chila. It is the only option that comes to mind for breakfast, recommended by a nutritionist /dietician for weight loss. It is rich in protein and low calories; you can try it with oats, besan, or suji but make sure it is loaded with a lot of vegetables. During quarantine diets such as Keto or any other will be very hard to follow, it all will go down the drain because of less availability of food options, that’s why we have to be smart in choosing the right food in order to maintain our health under given circumstances.For those trying to lose weight eat boiled rajma with a little bit of salt and pepper during the afternoon. A 100gm of rajma contain 8.7gm of protein and 22gm of carbs with full of fibre. And make sure to drink a lot of water throughout the dayDrink lemon once a day, they detox your body and filter all the bacteria out of your body. You can make your own detox water at home. Take 8-10 mint leaves to add some ginger in 2-3l of water and boil it. Cool it.  You can even drink this water instead of regular water throughout the day.Besides these, add green juice in your diet daily because let’s face it no one can’t go out, we have to be creative with the available options. They are very easy to make and less time taking. Green vegetables will help us to keep your body and stomach cool in scorching heat and also it has high nutritional value.Besides food, the only good thing this quarantine time has given us is the amount of fresh air and the clean environment. Due to the quarantine all factories, traffic, etc have come to a halt, I know it all will resume but enjoy as it last. For physical workout -try to do walk or yoga in your garden or on the terrace, you can do it even in the evening with the amount of fresh air we have now in our ecosystem it will be as beneficial as in the early morning.  Add a little bit of cardio, since all of you are only sitting or lounging in your beds/ sofa, doing some exercise will help you to stay active and energetic. And for gym freaks that I am sure were more depressed than anyone due to the closure of all gym, but don’t worry there are a lot of options which you can try at home without losing any muscle. Here are some exercises that you can do in this quarantine at home without any equipment needed.Start with stretching just to be warmed up and make blood flowing in your body (Jumping Jacks, Steam Engines, Burpees)15 Pushups x3set10 Squat Lungesx3set10 Forearm Plank PushupX3setlast_img read more

Video surfaces showing California high school students giving Nazi salute

first_imgsmolaw11/iStock(GARDEN GROVE, Calif.) — A group of Southern California high school students sparked outrage on Monday after video surfaced of them giving the Nazi salute while a German World War II-era marching song played in the background.The video shows several male students from Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California, giving the Adolf Hitler salute and laughing as the song plays. At least one student appeared to sing along with the music. Officials with the Garden Grove Unified School District said the video was taken in November 2018, but the school became aware of it in March and took “immediate action,” according to a statement released Monday.The school district said it could not disclose if any of the students had been disciplined as a result of the video, citing federal privacy laws.“Garden Grove Unified School District and Pacifica High School strongly condemn a video recorded last year of some students who engaged in offensive Nazi-related gestures,” the statement said. “It was not brought to the attention of the administration of Pacifica High School until March of 2019, four months following the banquet, at which time school administrators took immediate action and addressed the situation with all students and families involved.”The video was initially “shared within a small group of students on SnapChat” and was taken during an off-campus student athletics banquet in an empty and unsupervised room at the facility, district officials said.The Daily Beast, which first reported on the video, said the students are members of the boys’ water polo team, but ABC News could not confirm those details.The district called it an “unfortunate incident” and said it reached out to community organizers to help facilitate anti-bias training.“In response to this unfortunate incident, district and school administrators have reached out to community organizations to provide support that will continue to ensure an anti-bias learning environment and address issues of hate, bias, and exclusion with all staff and students,” the statement said. “Pacifica High School, along with our other district schools, will be working with students, staff, and parents to continue to address these issues in the fall in collaboration with agencies dedicated to anti-bias education.”“A highly diverse district, Garden Grove Unified School District actively combats bias and bullying, remains focused on fostering an inclusive environment for all stakeholders and is committed to holding students accountable, educating them on the consequences of their choices and the impact these actions have on our schools and community at large,” it added.

Eurozone fears divergence of economies

first_imgHis message is likely to welcomed by those national governments, notably France and Germany, which have emphasised the need for an early return to fiscal discipline and resisted calls for greater stimulus measures. Almunia and Salgado were speaking after the monthly meeting of the Eurogroup, the informal body of eurozone finance ministers. Eurogroup meetings are usually chaired by Jean-Claude Juncker, the prime minister and finance minister of Luxembourg. Juncker left the meeting early, however, to concentrate on forming his new government. He won a fourth term as prime minister in a legislative election held yesterday.Both Almunia and Salgado played down recent suggestions that Juncker intends to quit his post as Eurogroup chief. Almunia said that he had “insider information” that Juncker would be staying on, while Salgado, who serves as Juncker’s vice-president, said that he would “probably” remain.Almunia said that he had reiterated to finance ministers his position that they should organise and co-ordinate stress tests of individual banks. The EU has come in for criticism from economic analysts, including those at the International Monetary Fund, for not following the US approach of stress-testing individual banks deemed to pose a potential threat to financial stability. The tests are designed to check whether banks are holding sufficient capital to guard against losses.Almunia said that the principles underlying the stress tests should be co-ordinated EU-wide in order “to have a comparison of the situation”. He said that “not all member states share our view, but this is our view”. Salgado said that finance ministers would hold further discussions on stress testing, but that the eurozone was not suited to “the kind of homogeneous test which was carried out in the US”.Salgado and Almunia also responded to an IMF analysis, published today, which said the eurozone needed to do more to clean up its banking sector. Salgado said that ministers, who had a presentation of the findings by the IMF, were “generally speaking” in agreement with the analysis. Almunia pointed out that the IMF fully supports the Commission’s proposals for reforming financial supervision in Europe, which are expected to be discussed by EU leaders later this month.On the rolling-back of economic stimulus measures, Almunia said that “during the second and third quarters of 2010 our economies as an average , not all at the same time…will start having positive figures regarding GDP growth”. He said that failure to roll back the stimulus measures at this point could lead to potentially greater structural discrepancies than existed before the start of the economic crisis. “That is why we are looking for co-ordination of structural reform in order to address these divergencies,” he said. The governments of the eurozone countries should begin rolling back the stimulus measures that they have put in place to tackle the economic crisis from mid-2010, according to Joaquín Almunia, the European commissioner for economic and monetary affairs.Almunia said last night (8 June) that the eurozone economy was expected to return to growth by mid-2010, and that continuing stimulus policies after this date could lead to serious economic divergence between different countries of the euro-area. He said that governments needed to start discussions now on an “exit strategy” away from stimulus measures, despite the prevailing economic uncertainty.Spain’s Finance Minister Elena Salgado said that ministers were in agreement with Almunia that “in all likelihood” the eurozone’s economic situation “will lend itself to withdrawing stimulus as growth continues”. She said ministers shared Almunia’s concern at the risk of divergence.last_img read more

Dutch strategy on Ukraine referendum leaked

first_img Also On POLITICO Finance errors hamper Dutch vote on EU-Ukraine deal By Cynthia Kroet “The referendum is not about a conflict with Russia and Putin,” it says, adding: “Do not take this vote as an opportunity to talk about discontent with the EU.”The document also shows that the government expects a positive outcome, but can’t rule out a No vote.“With a valid No [if the turnout is more than 30 percent] the cabinet will think about the steps it will take and discuss this with parliament.”The text also refers to global reaction to the vote, saying “there will be more international attention for the Netherlands.”Prime Minister Mark Rutte responded to the leak on Thursday before the European Council in Brussels. “Nothing stays secret,” he said, adding that “the association agreement is important, since the Netherlands is a trade nation.”The referendum campaign officially started last month. Opinion polls suggest a slight lead for the No campaign. Dutch cabinet ministers should tell voters that an EU-Ukraine deal is good for trade but they should not talk about conflict with Russia, according to the Dutch government’s referendum strategy, which was leaked to the broadcaster RTL.A 12-page document, made public Thursday, lists a number of questions people might have about an association agreement between the EU and Ukraine that the Dutch will vote on on April 6.It urges ministers to tell Dutch voters that the agreement will benefit trade and “ordinary Ukrainians.”last_img read more

WHO Reports Largest Single-day Increase in Coronavirus Cases

first_img“You can’t cancel the sunrise,” druid Arthur Pendragon told the BBC. In Spain, officials ended a national state of emergency after three months of lockdown, allowing its 47 million residents to freely travel around the country for the first time since March 14. The country also dropped a 14-day quarantine for visitors from Britain and the 26 European countries that allow visa-free travel. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez urged people to take maximum precautions: “The virus can return and it can hit us again in a second wave, and we have to do whatever we can to avoid that at all cost.” Overall in the pandemic, WHO reported 8,708,008 cases – 183,020 in the last 24 hours – with 461,715 deaths worldwide, with a daily increase of 4,743. Brazil’s Health Ministry said the total number of cases had risen by more than 50,000 in a day. President Jair Bolsonaro has been downplaying the risks even as his country has seen nearly 50,000 fatalities, the second-highest death toll in the world. Related: Coronavirus Death Rate is Higher for Those with Chronic Illnesses In Europe, a single meatpacking plant in Germany has had over 1,000 cases, so the regional government issued a quarantine for all 6,500 workers, managers and family members. Chinese authorities recorded 25 new confirmed cases – 22 in Beijing. In the past week, Beijing tightened travel controls by requiring anyone who wants to leave the Chinese capital, a city of 20 million people, to show proof they tested negative for the virus. The U.S. has the world’s highest number of reported infections, over 2.2 million, and the highest death toll, at about 120,000, according to Johns Hopkins. Health officials say robust testing is vital for tracking outbreaks and keeping the virus in check. White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said on CNN that Trump was being “tongue-in-cheek” and made the comment in a “light mood.” People get tested for COVID-19 at a drive through testing site hosted by the Puente Movement migrant justice organization Saturday, June 20, 2020, in Phoenix. Latinos are especially vulnerable to infection because they tend to live in tight quarters with multiple family members and have jobs that expose them to others. They also have a greater incidence of health conditions like diabetes that put them at higher risk for contracting COVID-19. (AP Photo/Matt York) In the United States, the virus appears to be spreading across the West and South. Arizona reported over 3,100 new infections, just short of Friday’s record, and 26 deaths. Nevada also reported a new high of 445 cases. At a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Trump said Saturday the U.S. has tested 25 million people, but the “bad part” is that it found more cases. In South Korea, nearly 200 infections have been traced to employees at a door-to-door sales company in Seoul, and at least 70 other infections are tied to a table tennis club there. But South Korean officials are reluctant to enforce stronger social distancing to avoid hurting the economy. More than two-thirds of those new deaths were reported in the Americas.center_img Democratic rival Joe Biden’s campaign accused Trump of “putting politics ahead of the safety and economic well-being of the American people.” GENEVA (AP) – The World Health Organization on Sunday reported the largest single-day increase in coronavirus cases by its count, at more than 183,000 new cases in the latest 24 hours. In England, lockdown restrictions prevented druids, pagans and party-goers on Sunday from watching the sun rise at the ancient circle of Stonehenge to mark the summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. English Heritage, which runs the site, livestreamed it instead. A few people gathered outside the fence. Experts said rising case counts can reflect multiple factors including more widespread testing as well as broader infection. The number of confirmed virus cases is still growing rapidly not only in the U.S. but in Brazil, South Africa and other countries, especially in Latin America. The UN health agency said Brazil led the way with 54,771 cases tallied and the U.S. next at 36,617. Over 15,400 came in in India. South Africa reported a one-day high of almost 5,000 new cases on Saturday and 46 deaths. Despite the increase, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a further loosening of one of the world’s strictest lockdowns. Casinos, beauty salons and sit-down restaurant service will reopen. Related: Drug Offers Hope Amid Spikes in Coronavirus Infections “This freedom that we now have, not having to justify our journey to see our family and friends, this was something that we were really looking forward to,” Pedro Delgado, 23, said after arriving from Spain’s Canary Islands. Joe McDonald reported from Beijing and Kim Tong-hyung reported from Seoul, South Korea. AP journalists around the world contributed to this report. “When you do testing to that extent, you’re going to find more people, you’re going to find more cases,” Trump said. “So I said to my people, “˜Slow the testing down, please.’”³ But there was only a trickle of travelers at Madrid-Barajas Airport, which on a normal June day would be bustling. In Asia, China and South Korea reported new coronavirus cases Sunday in outbreaks that threatened to set back their recoveries.last_img read more
