Fitter, Stronger Collins defies time

first_imgBeing fitter, stronger and having his wife as coach have been key factors to why Kim Collins continues to defy time and run faster even as he gets older.Collins, who turns 40 in April, opened his season at the Central Hurdles and Relays meet at G.C. Foster College on Saturday, winning the 60-metre dash in 6.53 seconds.Iran’s Reza Ghasemi’s 6.52s leads the world so far this season and Collins’ time was run outdoors, so it won’t be ratified, but one gets the feeling it won’t be long before the 39-year-old Kittitian grabs pole position once again like he did in 2015.Last season, Collins ran nine races unbeaten over 60m indoors and had the top-four fastest times in the world.The closest sprinter to his world-leading 6.47 was 26-year-old Ryan Bailey of the USA, who ran 6.50s in Seattle on February 14. Ironically, on that same day Collins ran that same time in Berlin, tying the American for the fifth fastest time of the year.Collin’s speed has not been confined to the indoor circuit as, in 2014, he ran the 100 metres in a personal best 9.96 seconds, almost one-tenth of a second faster than the 10.07s he ran to win the men’s 100m final at the World Championships in Paris in 2003.The Jamaican-based athlete explained that it is his approach to training that has allowed him to defy the odds and defy time.”Most athletes go in the opposite direction,” he revealed. “They come and they train hard, extremely hard every day and this goes on for months. In the end, their bodies will begin to break down. I come from the opposite direction. Whatever it is you’re trying to do, you must get fit first. So before I go to sprint, my body must be fit.”WEIGHT TRAININGHe also revealed that he is a lot stronger now than when he was world champion 13 years ago, having adopted weight training later on in his career, something he never did when he was younger.”I am way, way stronger now because back then I wasn’t doing weights, I wasn’t taking vitamins, nothing like that,” he said. “If I was doing what I am doing now back in 2003, I would have been a lot better. I would have been a lot faster and probably would have moved on a long time ago because I would have had such a great career.”He gives a lot of credit to his wife, Paula, who he said, helps him be honest about how his body feels.last_img read more

Keeping up with the Joneses’ kid

first_imgIn every parent’s life there comes that moment when your child simply has to have something, and the plea comes with a simple rationale: “because all my friends have one.” My wife, Amy, and I hit that point one week after Christmas, when our 9-year-old son called a family meeting to explain that he really wants an air-powered gun a gift several of his neighborhood friends found under their Christmas trees. Forget for a moment whether a gun of any sort is right for a 9-yearold (I’m in the camp that sa ys it isn’t, even if this one shoots something that is less lethal than BBs or pellets). The issue here really isn’t the object; he could just as easily have requested a motor scooter, a cellphone, an iPod or whatever the latest must-have toy is. The real issue is dealing effectively with desires that are based on nothing more than the fact that others have it. It’s an arms race that parents are all too quick to dismiss. It isn’t that we should always give in to our kids’ demands. But we sometimes forget that we, too, are guilty of coveting our neighbors’ toys. What’s more, we forget what it was like to be young and to crave acceptance among peers, and how frustrating it was when Mom and Dad just didn’t seem to get it. Of course, Mom and Dad do get it: We know that wanting something for competitive reasons is often no reason at all. The question is, how do you make your kids get it? How do you effectively use these desires to teach kids an early lesson about the pitfalls of keeping up with the Joneses or, in this case, the Joneses’ kids? I’d be surprised if there’s a parent anywhere who hasn’t had to deal with “all my friends have one.” From a kid’s perspective, it makes perfect sense: I want to fit in, and the way to do that is to play the part others have already defined. As a parent, your instinct is to think it’s absurd. But you can’t just brush it aside, because in your child’s world it not only seems true it often is true. I know every kid my son plays with has a handheld videogame system, and if he didn’t have one he’d be the odd man out when all his friends gather to play. One of my friends on the East Coast says her daughter began begging for an American Girl doll after the young girl’s friend received one first. “Part of the reason she wanted one,” my friend says, “is that she really enjoys sitting with her friend and playing dolls. That’s actually a healthy behavior, so I wanted to encourage it.” Her daughter got the doll for Christmas. Now, clearly, wanting your child to fit in doesn’t trump everything. I don’t believe my son should have a gun no matter how many of his friends have one. I’m not going to change my principles simply because he’ll be the odd kid out. Similarly, a friend of mine doesn’t want his daughter to have an iPod, even though many of her friends have one. He doesn’t want her to start listening to the iPod in the car, instead of reading. The question, then, is this: If you’re going to say no to the “everybody has one” argument, how do you take this opportunity to help your child manage the feelings of envy that we all have from time to time? If he or she can learn now to differentiate between truly desiring something and wanting something just out of envy, you may be sparing your child a lifetime of painful yearning. Essentially, your ultimate goal is to reach that place where your kids reflexively know they don’t need to keep up with the Joneses. They’re defining the game for themselves, making decisions independent of what others think or have, and, more than likely, becoming the ones their friends want to emulate. “There is a difference,” I told my son during the family meeting he called, “between wanting a toy that’s fun and wanting a toy to fit in.” He looked puzzled. So, Amy and I engaged him, prodding him to explain in detail why he wanted this particular gun. “Given that Mom and I don’t like guns,” I asked him, “and given that you know they can hurt people and animals and someone else’s property and possibly even you, why do you think you need a gun?” “Because my friends all have one, and they’ll like me if I have one, too.” “Exactly,” I said. “You just figured out for yourself why you want a gun because someone else has one. That’s the only reason.” His eyes brightened and he smiled. The light bulb, I could see, had illuminated. That’s the thing to remember, says Denise, my California friend who counsels families about money matters: “You have to separate in your kid’s mind possession of some object and the friendship they think it will solidify.” Kids operate under the illusion that continued friendship with someone or some group is dependent upon possessing something that this person or group has. If you buy the item for your kid or allow your kid to buy it, and the friendship continues as it probably would anyway you’re simply reinforcing the misguided illusion that the possession is a bond in the friendship. Conversely, if you don’t buy the item and the friendship continues, as it almost certainly will, you crack the illusion that having something equates to being friends with certain people. Kids catch on to this stuff quickly. “When I was a kid and I wanted something that another girl had,” Denise says, “my mom would say things like, If all your friends wanted to jump off a bridge, would you want that, too?’ or You’re not your friends; you’re Denise.’ “ Those chestnuts, Denise says, meant nothing to her as a child. My grandmother often made similar comments to me. And like Denise, I promise you it wasn’t effective, because it never provided any rationale good or bad for not allowing me to buy something. It just left me infuriated and wanting whatever I wanted even more. “There’s no formula,” Denise says. “It’s all about having a responsive discussion with your kids so that light bulb can go off for them. They might still want the object, and that’s OK, but the desire will begin to fade.” That’s exactly what has happened with my son and his quest for this gun. He still talks about it, but his intensity is noticeably muted. In fact, the other day he gave Amy the money he was going to contribute to the gun’s purchase. “I think I’d rather put this money in my bank account, Mom,” he told her, “and save it till I find something that I want.” New Advice at No Cost Encore / By Kelly Greene Barron’s Insight/By Lawrence C. Strauss Lawrence C. Strauss is a senior editor of Barron’s magazine, available online at www.barrons.com I n this season of resolutions, which often involve personal health and retirement finances, here are some of the more valuable guides that we have encountered of late all of which are free of charge. Nest Eggs. For a series of articles designed to help retirees find ways to stretch and preserve their savings, check out the Fall 2005 issue of FDIC Consumer News. The articles include links to other helpful tools, as well. For example, an article discussing when to tap Social Security benefits and retirement savings includes a calculator for figuring out the age at which you would “break even” if you start taking your benefit before your full retirement age. (It’s found online at www.socialsecurity. gov/OACT/quickcalc/when2retire. html.) The online version of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.’s guide, which also has a true-false quiz, is available at www.fdic. gov/consumers/consumer/news/ cnfall05.

Or call the Federal Citizen Information Center (888-878-3256) weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time. Caregiving. The Mature Market Institute, part of MetLife Inc., has published a collection of guides to later life. Among the latest is “Since You Care: Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiving Challenges.” This 27-page report, produced with the National Alliance for Caregiving, differentiates among Alzheimer’s, changes common to normal aging, and other types of dementia that might be brought on by medication or vitamin deficiency, and may be reversible. The report highlights the need for Alzheimer’s caregivers to get support, listing a variety of resources. There’s also hands-on advice, including tips for communicating effectively with an Alzheimer’s patient, ways to make the patient’s home safer, and strategies for preventing wandering. The institute also has published two pages of tips for maintaining a healthy brain. (Tip No. 1: Don’t smoke. No. 5: Socialize and have fun.) You can get a copy of these guides and others at the site www. maturemarketinstitute.com. Or, you can write to the Mature Market Institute at 57 Greens Farms Road in Westport, Conn., 06880, or call 203-221-6580. Doctors. Do you leave the doctor’s office wishing you had remembered to ask something else? The National Institute on Aging, part of the federal government, has published a guidebook called “Talking with Your Doctor: A Guide for Older People” to help patients work better with their physicians to get effective treatment. It says the keys are asking questions if the doctor’s explanation or instructions aren’t clear, bringing up problems even if the doctor doesn’t ask, and letting the doctor know if you have concerns about a change in your daily life. The guide offers tips on finding a doctor with whom you’re comfortable, preparing for an appointment, deciding what information you should share, and more. The booklet also has worksheets where you can note changes in health, concerns and your medications. To read the 48-page guide, go to www.niapublications.org/pubs/ talking/index.asp, or order a copy by calling 800-222-2225. Drugs. If you’re still considering the many choices for coverage under Medicare’s drug plan, a new Web site could help you sort through it all. (The deadline for enrolling with no penalty, unless you currently have coverage that’s at least as good as Medicare’s through an employer, is May 15.) The CaRxE Benefit Gateway, at www.carxe.org, has the same information as the government’s official drug-comparison tool, but allows older adults to save their searches. It was put together by the Coalition to Advance Prescription Drug Education, a nonprofit group of advocates for Medicare recipients. The coalition is also providing counseling at 866-394-7700 or help@carxe.org. Love & Money / By Jeff D. Opdyke Q:I enjoy your “Ask Dow Jones” column in the Sunday paper very much. You recently wrote about the annual gift-tax exclusion and said people can give away as much as $12,000 this year to anyone “without having to report it…” I thought donations of more than $250 had to be documented. S.W., Connecticut A:Many thanks for your kind words. You may be confusing the gift-tax exclusion with charitablegift deduction rules. Under the gift-tax exclusion, you can give away as much as $12,000 this year to anyone you want and to each of as many people as you wish without having to report it to the government. Many wealthy people do this to reduce the size of their estates. If you want to give someone even more than that, you can pay for their school or medical bills. Those payments won’t count toward the limit. Just be sure to pay those bills directly to the school or medical- service provider. But you can’t deduct any gifts unless your donation goes to a legitimate charitable organization, such as the Red Cross or Salvation Army. Even if you think of your son and daughter as your favorite charity, you can’t deduct any gifts to them. (You also can’t deduct any charitable gifts at all unless you itemize your deductions on your tax return.) The documentation rule you mentioned works like this: The Internal Revenue Service says you can claim a deduction for a charitable contribution of $250 or more only if you get an acknowledgement from the organization, or if you have certain payroll-deduction records. For more details, see IRS Publication 526 (“Charitable Contributions”). EARLY BIRDS, TAKE NOTE: The IRS will begin accepting electronically filed returns for 2005 starting Friday. The IRS also expects to post information soon on its Web site ( www.irs.gov ) about companies that will be offering free tax-preparation software and e-filing services. K ellogg’s Corn Flakes, Frosted Flakes and Rice Krispies have been breakfast icons for generations. But Wall Street hasn’t had much taste for the stock lately. Near $44, Kellogg (K) has been stuck in a trading range for more than a year. After four consecutive years, starting in 2001, of impressive gains under former chief executive Carlos Gutierrez, now U.S. secretary of commerce, skeptics began to worry about the sustainability of Kellogg’s strong results. But there’s plenty of snap, crackle and pop behind the Battle Creek, Mich., behemoth. Since 2002, Kellogg has held fast to the No.1 perch in the U.S. ready-to-eat cereal market, and shows no sign of giving it up. Measured in dollar sales, the company’s share has climbed to a recent 33.5%, from 32.7% several years ago, according to Information Resources, a Chicago market-research firm. After years of fumbling, Kellogg is thinking outside the box about adding more value to the stuff inside it. Roughly 15% of last year’s estimated sales of $10 billion were from products introduced in the past three years. Kellogg also is benefiting from demographics. The Kashi cereal line acquired in 2000 has been embraced by the same baby boomers who scarfed down Sugar Smacks as kids. Only now, they’ve become health-conscious. Mr. Gutierrez retooled the company after it went astray in the late 1990s, in part by shifting the focus to high-margin, value-added variants of its core products. If volume meant Special K, value today means Special K Red Berries and Frosted Mini- Wheats Vanilla Creme. The idea is to generate more revenue per ounce with offerings that carry higher price tags than the company’s simpler fare. Total debt, which was $6.8 billion early in 2001 after Kellogg acquired Keebler, today is down to $4.5 billion. And in the past few years, Kellogg has had a string of strong quarters. In 2005’s third quarter, it earned 66 cents a share, compared with 59 cents a year earlier. Sales rose 7%, to $2.6 billion, boosted by an 11% increase in North American retail cereal sales, a 6% jump in snack sales and an 8% increase in sales of frozen and specialty foods, including the Morningstar Farms line of meat substitutes and the Eggo waffle brand. In its latest quarter, sales of some Kashi cereals grew at doubledigit rates. Other winners included Special K and Special K Fruit & Yogurt; Smart Start and Crunch, all aimed at “healthy” eaters who fret about weight, fiber and such. Consumers want just about everything churned out by Kellogg, even if investors don’t. Over time, the Street view is bound to change as Kellogg’s sales and earnings grow.

Sex predator heads back to lockup

first_imgThe assailant hit the woman in the face almost a dozen times, but she fought him off – biting his thumb – until he left on a bicycle. A witness tried to follow, but the man got away, deputies said. Several hours later, deputies got a call from firefighters at the CYA group home about a man requesting medical attention for what he claimed was a dog bite, but firefighters said the wound did not appear to have been inflicted by a dog. Holmes later was identified by the two victims as the attacker, deputies said. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I don’t think we could get a plea much more than that,” Deputy District Attorney Fred Mesropi said. Sheriff’s deputies said Holmes was linked to the crimes by a bite mark on his hand left by the second woman as she fought him off. The first incident occurred about 11:15 a.m. Aug. 1 in the Wal-Mart parking lot in east Lancaster. A woman was in her car when a man forced his way into it and tried to keep her inside. She fought him, and he left on a bicycle, deputies said. About 30 minutes later, a woman was pushing her baby in a stroller on a sidewalk near Lancaster Boulevard and 15th Street East when a man came out from behind some bushes, grabbed her, dragged her into the bushes and left the baby on the sidewalk, deputies said. LANCASTER – A 21-year-old convicted rapist is heading to prison for 14 years after admitting he assaulted two women less than a week after his last release from behind bars. Fought off by the women he accosted in a parking lot and on a sidewalk, Devine Holmes was arrested last August less than a week after his placement in a California Youth Authority group home in east Lancaster, where he was staying as a condition of release from a locked CYA facility. “The evidence was against him, so it wasn’t in his best interest to risk spending the rest of his life in prison,” said Holmes’ attorney, Larry Sperber. “One of the charges carried a maximum of life in prison. If he was convicted on that alone, there was a potential of never getting paroled. This way at least he will know in a certain amount of time he will be able to get out of prison and get on with his life.” Holmes was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to kidnapping, assault with intent to commit another crime, assault with a deadly weapon, attempted kidnapping, attempted carjacking and false imprisonment. last_img read more

LAPD officer shot; prognosis good

A career criminal, McNeal had served multiple prison terms for violent crimes including robbery and murder, the police statement said. McNeal, whose parole on a robbery conviction ended in November 2005, had just robbed a nearby gas station when Ripatti and her partner began chasing him. “This occurrence is a tragic reminder of the danger that the men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department face every single day. It underscores the bravery and sacrifice they routinely exhibit in seeking to protect our citizens from criminals,” Police Chief William Bratton said. Bratton and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa visited the hospital to meet with Ripatti’s family and other officers. Ripatti’s husband, fellow LAPD Officer Tim Pearce, was among the officers responding to the shooting, Lopez said. The couple were classmates and have a 15-month-old daughter.

Things happen in matches, but we hope Paddy is ok.” After a blistering start, Ireland managed to hold on against a late Australian rally to win 56-52.DONEGAL STAR McBREARTY SUFFERS KIDNEY DAMAGE AFTER CRASHING INTO GOALPOSTS was last modified: November 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AustraliaCroke Parkkidney damagekilcarPaddy McBreartylast_img read more

VIEWPOINT: ANTI-VRT CAMPAIGNERS OPEN LETTER TO AN TAOISEACH

first_imgTHE Irish Drivers Association has called for a referendum on Ireland’s future in the EU.In an open letter to Taoiseach Enda Kenny, the group says Ireland’s breaches of EU rules on VRT make a mockery of our membership.The full text of the letter to Mr Kenny is below: An TaoiseachDear sir,We, the Irish Drivers Association, speaking as a majority  voice for our members of the Irish republic are now demanding a further referendum as to our future in Europe. It’s quiet clear that we were misled into joining Europe. The 1/1/2013 will mark 40 years of deception and fraud by past and present Governments by deceiving the citizens of 26 county Ireland of their treaty rights by retaining a prohibited tax under article 25 of the treaty of Rome. Mainly customs Duty’s/ VRT.By retaining this prohibited tax is contrary to article 39 the free movement of goods and discriminates against us as Europeans.By retaining this prohibited tax breaches the 3rd amendment of the Irish Constitution by way of accession to Europe. It’s very clear to the people of the Irish Republic that past and present Governments have been involved in direct collusion with Brussels to retain this prohibited tax to bail out banks and unsecured bond holders. A derogation was granted under article 14 to Ireland with regards customs duties but was to expire on the 31st of Dec 1992 the political trickery of FF relabelled customs duty’s and now named it VRT which is contrary to article 25. We are now asking all parties to back us in our demand for a further referendum to decide our future in Europe. John E Doherty Donegal Branch chairman.John Lernihan Founder and national chairman.
