first_img“We have a really serious health crisis going on,” Broad Leib said. “People are ill and not able to live a long and healthy life.”Gortmaker and Broad Leib discussed sugar-sweetened beverage taxes at Harvard Law School’s Wasserstein Building on Friday. The event was sponsored by the School’s Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics, together with Harvard Medical School’s Center for Bioethics and Brigham and Women Hospital’s Program on Regulation, Therapeutics, and Law. The hourlong event was moderated by Petrie-Flom Center Executive Director Carmel Shachar.While soda taxes can be effective — Berkeley’s resulted in an estimated 52 percent drop in consumption of sugary drinks — they can also raise significant funds. Philadelphia’s tax, for example, has raised $70 million a year.Broad Leib said the experience of Cook County, Ill., indicates the difficulty of the fight ahead, however. The county, which includes Chicago, approved a sugar-sweetened beverage tax in 2016, only to repeal it under pressure from retailers and others a year later.Opponents attack the taxation efforts as increasing the “nanny state” and impinging on individual autonomy — even if an individual’s choices aren’t the healthiest ones. Opponents argue that the taxes hurt local businesses, an argument that studies show does bear some weight, as Philadelphia’s experience shows an increase in sweetened beverage sales in surrounding communities.In the courts, the rulings have hinged on quirks of each case and, while the courts have struck some provisions against sugary beverages, they haven’t ruled that the taxes are unconstitutional. One problem, Broad Leib said, is that the cases are expensive to defend, a reality that can act as a deterrent in some communities.The fight against tobacco has also been difficult, Gortmaker, but has seen success, which he traced to three things: ending television advertising, taxing tobacco, and banning smoking in public places.“Those three things really changed the landscape in America,” Gortmaker said, “and I think you can draw a direct analogy to what we can do with sweetened beverages.” Taxes, calorie counts should be part of more aggressive attack against epidemic, experts say Related Though diet is complicated, sugary drinks are a relatively clear target, Gortmaker said. American diets are awash in added sugar, more than half of which comes from sugary drinks, he said. Raising taxes as a way to cut consumption is a tried-and-true governmental approach, one that worked well with tobacco and that takes advantage of existing tax-collecting infrastructure, rather than requiring elaborate new programs.Emily Broad Leib, clinical professor of law and head of Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic, said that along with obesity, rates of diabetes have risen until the condition now affects nearly 10 percent of the population. Fifty years ago, she said, less than 1 percent of Americans had Type 2 diabetes. Hold the soda, hold the fat shaming Sickly sweetcenter_img Sugar-sweetened drinks increase risk of mortality, especially in women Telling people what to eat and what not to eat often backfires, but ‘Don’t drink soda’ is a clearer message, Harvard expert says Hitting diabetes where we eat Amid rising rates of diabetes and obesity in the nation, Berkeley, Calif., became the first American city to institute a sugary-drink tax, generally referred to as a soda tax, in 2015.Since then a handful of jurisdictions, such as Philadelphia, Seattle, and Boulder, Colo., have passed similar measures. Other proposals have failed at the ballot box or been rescinded. New York proposed a rule capping portion sizes in 2012, which was successfully challenged in state court.The regulation push-pull continues as soda-tax citizen advocates and public-health professionals brace for the long haul and draw lessons from the tobacco wars about how tough a fight lies ahead against a deep-pocketed industry adept at political and public relations warfare.“I think it’s a question of time” before soda taxes become more common, said Steven Gortmaker, professor of the practice of health sociology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. “It’s a battle, though.”In some ways, the obesity epidemic itself is an ally of those supporting a tax: It’s not going away and it’s only going to get worse. A study by Gortmaker and colleagues published in December projected that in 10 years, half the adults in America will be obese and a quarter severely obese. Obesity won’t be uniformly distributed, however, and more than half the population will be obese in 29 states. A related study, he said, shows that more than half of U.S. children will be obese by age 35.“Consuming sugary beverages every day slowly kills you,” Gortmaker said. “I know it sounds terrible, but it’s kind of like cigarettes. In the short run it doesn’t have too much effect, but that excess weight gain does accumulate. … Twenty, 30, 40 years later it’s called obesity or severe obesity.” While soda taxes can be effective — Berkeley’s resulted in an estimated 52 percent drop in consumption of sugary drinks — they can also raise significant funds. Philadelphia’s tax, for example, has raised $70 million a year.last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s administration is moving to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines, freeing up more doses for states and beginning to distribute them to retail pharmacies next week. The push comes as there is new urgency to speed vaccinations to prevent the spread of potentially more serious strains of the virus that has killed more than 445,000 Americans. Starting next week, 1 million doses will be distributed to some 6,500 pharmacies across the country. The administration is also boosting weekly allocation of vaccines sent directly to states and territories for the coming weeks.last_img read more

first_imgWeek one leaves fantasy owners with the wrong mindset heading forward into the season. They are either prematurely crowning themselves champion of the league after an early win or scrambling to make any kind of trade to shake up their roster and not feel the pain of defeat again in week two.Both parties need to stop. Fantasy Football is a cruel game full of ups and downs on a week-to-week basis that send owners on an emotional roller coaster. Even if your stud player didn’t perform to your standards just relax and wait it out.However, if you can’t stand your team’s week one performance and are looking to make a major splash by adding someone on the waiver wire or making a trade it’s understandable. CHOOSE WISELY. StudsKelvin Benjamin, WR, Carolina PanthersThis rookie wide receiver is 6’5” 243 pounds of pure monster. While with any rookie there are bound to be some learning curves, Benjamin didn’t show any problems against the Buccaneers as he carved their defense up for ninety-three yards and a touchdown. Look for Benjamin to continue this type of performance throughout the course of the season because lets face it who else is Cam Newton going to throw to after losing their top four receivers from last season. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Minnesota VikingsHonestly this pick could end up being completely moronic by the end of the season. With that being said the hype around this guy is absolutely ridiculous. SURE he had a big week one, but if it wasn’t for his sixty-seven yard fluke of a touchdown he only had a pathetic twenty-three yards receiving. To make matters worse he doesn’t have a good quarterback throwing to him because Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater, and Christian Ponder combined wouldn’t amount to a top twenty quarterback in the NFL. Be skeptical of his hype and don’t rely on him too much as a WR1 or WR2. Sell high on him if you can and try and get a more proven WR. Carlos Hyde, RB, San Francisco 49ersYes, Hyde is also a rookie. While most owners do not like rookies because they are risky and sometimes inconsistent, they do also provide the highest upside. Plain and simple there isn’t a rookie running back with more upside than Hyde. While he is currently blocked for playing time by Frank Gore, Hyde will see limited carries and could provide help in deeper leagues. However, everyone needs to be aware of him and try to stash him on their bench because if Gore goes down with an injury Carlos Hyde immediately steps into the conversation of being a top ten fantasy running back.center_img DudsAllen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville JaguarsHey look, Hurns is a rookie and I don’t like him for fantasy! While he did have an extremely impressive week one, if it wasn’t for wide receiver Cecil Shorts being out he never would have produced numbers close to that. I expect Hurns to receive fewer reps when Cecil gets back from his injury and return to fantasy irrelevance. Do not waste your time picking him up or trading for him because he, like Kevin Ogletree who had a huge first game in 2012 and then proceeded to do nothing the rest of the season, is an absolute fluke. Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia EaglesWhile I was going to go another rookie in Brandin Cooks (Future Star) I decided to switch it up and go with the second year TE out of Stanford (Fight On). Chip Kelly, the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, already said that Ertz will play a larger role in their offense this year and boy did he mean it. Ertz in week one caught three balls for seventy-seven yards and a touchdown. Expect more performances like this from Ertz, as he should be looked at as a serious weapon in the redzone for the Eagles.last_img read more

first_imgRustenburg may be one of the world’s top platinum mining centres, but gold is the precious commodity Ivory Coast are digging for when they take on Togo Tuesday.For the fifth consecutive time, Didier Drogba’s Elephants are favourites to win the Africa Cup of Nations and the continent’s top-ranked team will be expected to dispatch Group D minnows Togo with ease.With tricky Maghreb opposition in the shape of former champions Tunisia and Algeria ahead, the Ivorians will be anxious to get their 2013 campaign off to a flying start.For 34-year-old Drogba, Africa’s most famous footballing son, this is the last chance to finally add the coveted crown to his over-laden trophy cabinet.At the 2012 Nations Cup, Ivory Coast remained undefeated only to suffer an agonising penalty shoot-out loss to Zambia in the final in Libreville.Ironically, Drogba’s missed penalty in regulation time set up the Zambians for victory. The decision to switch the competition from even to odd years has offered the China-based forward one last throw of the Nations Cup dice.On paper, at least, Tuesday’s Group D opener is a lop-sided affair, with Togo a yawning 63 rungs behind Ivory Coast on FIFA’s world rankings’ ladder.With Drogba and the Toure brothers Kolo and Yaya from English Premier League champions Manchester City in their midst the Ivorians are oozing class — yet remain Cup-less.This so-called ‘golden generation’ has failed to emulate the class of 1992, which brought the Nations Cup title to Abidjan for the only time after winning a marathon shoot-out over Ghana in Senegal.They lost the 2006 final in Cairo on penalties to Egypt, with the Pharaohs sweeping them aside 4-1 in the semi-finals two years later. In 2010 they were undone by Algeria, who won a quarter-final thriller in extra time, before going so close in Gabon/Equatorial Guinea last year.Drogba, whose mother set up a street stall cooking food for fans in Gabon, is hungrier than ever to take the coveted prize.“It would be great to win the trophy now. Honestly, we are getting tired of losing out each time,” says the striker who plans to make his international swansong at the 2014 World Cup should Ivory Coast make it to Brazil.“This Africa Cup is undoubtedly my last. I want to pour my whole heart and strength into it.“We have come so close to winning the trophy twice, but that doesn’t mean we should slow down. We have learnt from our failures and are returning to win the title.” Ivory Coast are coached this year by inexperienced Frenchman Sabri Lamouchi.Togo, back for the first time since the Cabinda attack in Angola in 2010 when two members of their entourage were killed by separatists in the oil-rich enclave, have nothing to lose.Their return, though, was clouded by Emmanuel Adebayor’s interminable ‘will he compete, won’t he compete’ saga.The Tottenham striker has retired more times than Frank Sinatra, but finally decided to join up with his compatriots following a little arm-twisting from the tiny west African nation’s president.Although he may have scored only twice for Spurs this term, Adebayor is undoubtedly the star of the national side, equalising away and opening the scoring at home against Gabon in the decisive qualifier. Togo’s ‘reward’ for making it to South Africa was being drawn with three of the top 10 teams in Africa, yet French coach Didier Six is undaunted.“We are not afraid of these big teams. This group is difficult, but we have a new generation that want to make a name for itself. There is everything to gain and nothing to lose.”last_img read more

first_imgNEW HARTFORD — With so many Iowans spending more time at home lately, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says it’s the ideal opportunity for them to take a few minutes and fill out their U-S Census questionnaires.Grassley is urging Iowans to complete the form online, which especially makes sense during the coronavirus pandemic.  Grassley says, “I want Iowans to spread the word to their family members and friends, particularly those who spend their winters outside of Iowa, that we want them counted in Iowa.”If you respond online, by phone or by mail, Grassley says it will minimize the need to send census takers out into communities to follow up.   Grassley says, “If you live most of the year in Iowa, be sure you’re going to be counted in our state even if you aren’t in Iowa on April the 1st.”The census is used in determining Iowa’s representation in Congress as well as for hundreds of billions of federal dollars for programs ranging from food and health care to road construction.  “Every Iowan counts,” Grassley says, “and I want every Iowan counted in Iowa.”The Census Bureau reported last week that Iowa’s response rate ranks number-two in the country, just a fraction behind Wisconsin and just ahead of Minnesota. While the national average is 21-percent, the bureau says about 26-percent of Iowans have already filled out their census forms, with 23-percent of Iowans responding online.last_img read more

first_imgMiami Dolphins tight end Charles Clay (42) is tackled by Pittsburgh Steelers free safety Ryan Clark (25) and Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward (97) during the of an NFL football game in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. The Dolphins won 34-28. (AP Photo/Don Wright)PITTSBURGH (AP) — Cameron Wake isn’t sure he can keep living like this.Oh, the disruptive Miami Dolphins defensive end can deal with his resilient team making a playoff run. It’s the way the Dolphins are doing it that is exasperating.In a season marred by a bullying controversy and nine nail-biters in 13 weeks, this one may have been the most harrowing of all.Miami’s 34-28 victory in the snow over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday allowed the Dolphins (7-6) to keep pace with Baltimore for the AFC’s second Wild Card spot, but only after Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown stepped out at the Miami 12 following a five-lateral relay that nearly ended with one of the most bizarre finishes in league history.“I think I need some blood pressure medicine or something,” Wake said. “That’s December football.”Something the Dolphins looked decidedly comfortable with during a frenetic second half in which Miami blew a pair of leads only to rally behind tight end Charles Clay and quarterback Ryan Tannehill.Clay caught two touchdowns, including the winner with 2:53 to go, while Tannehill appeared right at home in the snowstorm that blanketed the field in the first half but did little to slow either team in the second. The second-year quarterback passed for three touchdowns and added a career-long 48-yard run.“The ball felt good all day,” Tannehill said. “You’re warm on the sideline and once you get on the field, you feel good.”And the Dolphins look good heading into a showdown at home against AFC East leader New England.Not so much in Pittsburgh. The Steelers (5-8) dropped their second straight and have been all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs with three weeks to go.“Regardless of the record man, you’ve still got to play football,” Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor said.Pittsburgh Steelers Emmanuel Sanders and Miami Dolphins Mike Wallace talk at the end of an NFL football game in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. (AP Photo/Tom E. Puskar)Five things we learned as Miami won in Pittsburgh for the first time in 23 years:CLAY IS MORE LIKE CONCRETE: The third-year tight end has come into his own this season and his combination of size and strength proved too much for the Steelers. Clay caught seven passes for 97 yards. He beat Cortez Allen, a cornerback, deep for a 40-yard gain in the first half and discarded Allen and Troy Polamalu on his 12-yard game-winner.Clay caught a short pass from Tannehill then brushed off arm tackles by both Steelers before skipping into the end zone.“I was trying to get the ball out,” Polamalu said. “I’ve just got to make the tackle.”STEELERS ARE SUNK: Pittsburgh’s loss dropped the Steelers two games behind the Dolphins and Ravens and one behind the New York Jets for the last playoff berth with three games to go. Pittsburgh is also assured of a second straight non-winning season for the first time this millennium.“It definitely (stinks) man,” wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said. “What do you guys want me to say? I’m going to stop playing football? No.”DANIEL THOMAS CAN MOTOR: The Dolphins lost leading rusher Lamar Miller to a concussion in the third quarter. It hardly mattered. Thomas finished with 105 yards rushing and a score, including a 55-yard zig-zag through the Pittsburgh secondary in the fourth quarter to set up Clay’s second score.“I was looking at the defender, I think it was Ryan Clark,” Thomas said. “He looked like he didn’t really want to tackle me, so I tried to make something happen.”ANTONIO BROWN’S LEFT FOOT IS TOO WIDE: The Steelers nearly pulled off a stunner during a frantic final play.Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hit Sanders for a 20-yard gain, setting off a series of flips and tosses that ended with Brown streaking down the left sideline toward the end zone. Brown celebrated while he crossed the goal line, but an official correctly ruled the left edge of Brown’s left foot was out of bounds.“I thought I had it clean,” Brown said. “I thought I separated really good getting to the sideline, but it didn’t seem quite enough.”MIKE TOMLIN STAYED OUT OF SIGHT: A week after earning a $100,000 fine for interfering with a kickoff return in a loss to Baltimore, the Pittsburgh Steelers coach stayed well off the field on special teams plays time. Small consolation in a season that looks like another step back for one of the NFL’s marquee franchises.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.orglast_img read more
