Insulin’s primary role is to help remove glucose — or sugar — from your blood. Type 2 diabetes is the result of increasing insulin resistance, which allows sugar levels to increase, and can trigger other health problems.Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing and dangerous drops in oxygen during sleep, which can wreak havoc on managing diabetes. Insulin resistance and weight gain are a factor in both conditions, as we’ll explain.Stress and Insulin ResistanceWhile you can change some risk factors, there’s one many people aren’t even aware of: stress.Just like eating sweets and carbohydrates, constant stress can increase blood glucose levels. Stress hormones, such as epinephrine and cortisol, then kick in. Their natural function is to boost energy  when needed during a fight-or-flight response. If you’re in imminent danger, that’s good. But too much adrenaline — caused by unrelenting stress — can make fat cells resistant to insulin.Damon D Tanton, MDEndocrinology, Diabetes and MetabolismHow does this connect to sleep? Even though you’re not awake, sleep apnea is a form of physical stress. Untreated, it causes you to stop breathing, perhaps hundreds of times a night, sometimes for a minute or longer. This results in a lack of oxygen that takes a toll on your body.“Sleep apnea causes poor oxygenation and can lead to a buildup of carbon dioxide in the body,” says Damon Tanton, MD, an endocrinologist at Florida Hospital. “This additional stress leads to releasing stress hormones, and can lead to insulin resistance.”This resistance may progress to type 2 diabetes and other related health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.Treating sleep apnea can lead to better blood glucose control by reducing insulin resistance and improving alertness and motivation. “Correcting sleep apnea is an important step toward controlling type 2 diabetes,” says Dr. Tanton.Sleep Loss, Weight GainA 2012 study in the journal Science Translational Medicine found that sporadic and irregular sleep may also cause a decreased metabolic rate (how fast your body burns calories while resting), which could contribute to weight gain and many long-term health problems, including diabetes.Dr. Gitanjali Srivastava, Internal Medicine Pediatrics“Sleep apnea is most commonly a missed diagnosis, especially in patients struggling with weight issues. Signs can be as subtle as daytime fatigue and mild snoring despite getting eight hours of sleep at nighttime,” says Gitanjali Srivastava, MD,  internist and obesity medicine specialist at Florida Hospital.Treatment, Minus the Mask“Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment,” says Jeffrey Lehman, MD, an otolaryngologist at Florida Hospital. Using mild air pressure, CPAPs keep airways open. Yet some patients grow frustrated and stop using their CPAPs, causing the apnea to return. Now there’s an alternative.Jeffrey J Lehman, MDOtolaryngologyTransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS), a minimally invasive technique, may be an option. Using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, areas of the throat that were once difficult to reach can now be accessed. TORS provides surgeons with enhanced agility, precision and a 3-D advanced imaging system. Because the procedure is performed through the mouth, there’s no visible scar, less blood loss and a faster recovery.“Now, we’re able to remove tissue that contributes to airway blockage with no external incisions, and patients go home the next day, sleeping healthfully,” says Dr. Lehman.Learn More:Got Prediabetes? 1 in 3 Do … and Don’t Know ItCaring For Your Heart When You Have DiabetesHave Diabetes? 7 Tips for Happy Feet and Toes Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Please enter your comment! 18 million Americans suffer from the conditionFrom Florida Hospital – ApopkaAre you tired even though you went to bed early?

EIA Identifies States with the Windiest Energy

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Apr 16, 2014 EIA Identifies States with the Windiest Energy SHARE Twelve states produced 80% of the total wind energy generated last year, according to preliminary data released from the Energy Information Administration(EIA) in the March Electric Power Monthly report.Number one on the list is Texas, which generated nearly 36 million megawatthours (MWh) of electricity in 2013. Iowa was second, with more than 15 million MWh, followed by California, Oklahoma, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Oregon, Colorado, Washington, North Dakota, and Wyoming. Iowa ranked first in proportion of wind to total electricity generated with 27.4% of net electricity production coming from wind turbines.These 12 states produced a combined 134 million MWh of electricity from wind. Nationwide, 167 million MWh of power came from wind in 2013, a 19% increase from 2012. Wind power increased its share of U.S. total electricity generation in 2013 from 3.5% to 4.1%. All but 13 states reported to EIA some generation from wind, and 23 states increased their wind generation more than 10% above 2012 production levels. California’s wind generation exceeded geothermal generation for the first time in 2013.Source: Domesticfuel.com SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Energy EIA Identifies States with the Windiest Energy Previous articleYouth PQA Plus Program RevisedNext articleSummit to Examine What Millennials Want from Animal Ag Andy Eubanklast_img read more

U.S. Farmers Still Waiting for Action on Trade

first_img Still-waiting-on-trade-actionDr. Bob ThompsonChinese negotiators are meeting regularly with U.S. negotiators in an effort to resolve our current trade dispute. While the President continues to speak of progress and has delayed any further escalation of trade tariffs, U.S. farmers, who have been hurt economically by the dispute, are pressing for a resolution.  Davie Stephens, a soybean grower from Clinton, Kentucky, and American Soybean Association (ASA) president stated, “We are glad that talks between these two countries will continue without the tariff hike, but we need resolution and are discouraged that it’s still hard to see a tangible end in sight.”Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue admitted this week that talks do not necessarily mean progress, “They are engaged in conversation and  hear what we say…”  When asked it if the Chinese are willing to make a deal, Perdue equivocated, “I think it would be premature to characterize it as a willingness.”While the President predicted a possible  agreement within a month or two, Perdue was less optimistic and indicated the U.S. was not clear on just how willing Beijing was to make concessions on key ag trade issues.  The Chinese did make a significant purchase of U.S. soybeans last week but called it a “good faith” ensure.Meanwhile, the Mexico-Canada-U.S. free trade agreement is stalled in Congress, and the steel tariffs remain in place. Perdue admitted he is frustrated by the lack of action on tariffs and on the deal that will replace NAFTA, “We had hoped the tariffs would have been lifted by now.”  USDA sources said Perdue has been pressuring the White House to lift the steel tariffs since an agreement has been reached with our top two trading partners.   The administration has refused to lift the  tariffs as a way of keeping pressure on Congress to ratify the agreement.Dr. Bob Thompson, former Purdue Ag Dean, said the longer the tariffs remain in place, the more agriculture exports will decline, “Nobody has ever won a tariff war, and I feel very badly that this has set U.S. agriculture back as much as it has.”National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson said the administration and USDA must begin to address the worsening farm economy. “A majority of American farmers lost money last year, and that has been the case over the past several years,” Johnson explained. “Farm prices are unsustainably low. Farm lending is tightening and bankruptcies are rising.” Corn and soybean leaders are likely to express similar concerns when they meet with Secretary Perdue at Commodity Classic at the end of the week.

Widespread increase in dynamic imbalance in the Getz region of Antarctica from 1994 to 2018

first_imgThe Getz region of West Antarctica is losing ice at an increasing rate; however, the forcing mechanisms remain unclear. Here we use satellite observations and an ice sheet model to measure the change in ice speed and mass balance of the drainage basin over the last 25-years. Our results show a mean increase in speed of 23.8 % between 1994 and 2018, with three glaciers accelerating by over 44 %. Speedup across the Getz basin is linear, with speedup and thinning directly correlated confirming the presence of dynamic imbalance. Since 1994, 315 Gt of ice has been lost contributing 0.9 ± 0.6 mm global mean sea level, with increased loss since 2010 caused by a snowfall reduction. Overall, dynamic imbalance accounts for two thirds of the mass loss from this region of West Antarctica over the past 25-years, with a longer-term response to ocean forcing the likely driving mechanism.last_img read more

Legendary Crooner Clint Holmes to Grace Music Pier Stage

first_imgSinger Clint Holmes promises an entertaining show at the Ocean City Music Pier Sept. 2. (www.clintholmesmusic.com) By Tim KellyTalk with show biz legend Clint Holmes and you might just end up in a conversation as diverse and wide-ranging as the man himself.Holmes, who steps onto the Ocean City Music Pier stage Sunday night with the Ocean City Pops Orchestra, didn’t hold back during an unflinching chat earlier in the week.  Among other topics, he took on growing up bi-racial in a virtually all-white suburb of Buffalo N.Y., his fondness for the Jersey Shore, and recollections from decades on the road.It left us with the impression that concert goers will be treated to a show that is part career retrospective, part homage to his musical influences. It should be a musical tour-de-force of all things Clint Holmes, with full backing of our own Ocean City Pops.The show takes place at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2. Tickets are $30 and $25 and available at the Music Pier box office and at www.ocnj.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1059135.“The thing about Clint, he is not only an incredibly talented musician, singer and songwriter, he is also a great performer,” said Michael Hartman, Ocean City’s director of Special Events. “He loves being on stage and engaging his audience.”Holmes’ resume, now into its seventh decade, is all over the lot: crooner in venues from small jazz clubs to giant cruise ships; accomplished songwriter and arranger; buddy to Vegas icons such as Sammy Davis Jr., even studio announcer for the late Joan Rivers’ two–year stint hosting “The Late Show” on Fox in the late 1980s.Clint Holmes performs with wife, Kelly Clinton Holmes. (www.clintholmesmusic.com)Casual music fans know him best for his 1973 hit “Playground in My Mind,” which spent 23 weeks on the Billboard “Hot 100” chart, rising all the way to No. 2. It also reached the No. 2 position on the competing Cashbox chart and was No. 1 in Canada.Recently, Holmes carved out a niche playing rooms large and small in Las Vegas, his permanent home. He has also regularly played jazz clubs, such as the Cabaret Jazz Theatre in Las Vegas. He was performing at a small club in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C., when “Playground in My Mind” was first played on a local radio station and soon became a hit.“I am a singer, that’s how I make my living,” he said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to work steadily. I was able to do what I love, put three children through college and never pump gas for anyone but myself.”He’s looking forward to his gig in O.C. for two major reasons. His new CD, “Rendezvous,” was recorded with a full orchestra. This is the first opportunity for Holmes, who travels with a rhythm section, to perform it live, as the songs were meant to be played. The CD has been nominated for two 2018 Grammy Awards.“We are going to have about four hours to rehearse some pretty complex music,” he said, expressing confidence that he and the Pops will mesh.The other reason: “I love playing casinos, but some of the audience members may have been given the tickets as comps, or maybe the wife wanted to come to the show and the husband didn’t. This audience is going to be there because they love music.”Hartman expects Ocean City to return the love. “Clint Holmes made part of his reputation just an island north of us (in Atlantic City) and what a fitting way to close out what has been a great summer season at the Music Pier,” Hartman pointed out.Clint Holmes says he is excited to perform at the Music Pier.Holmes is the son of an African-American jazz musician, whose World War II bride was a white British opera singer. He was raised in near-poverty as the only kid who looked different in a small, 500-resident community just outside Buffalo.“To most of them I was the outsider, the black kid,” he said. “However, to some blacks, I wasn’t ‘black enough,’ whatever that means. I sang in the church choir, which had maybe eight members. I knew we were different. When the parties happened, we were never invited.”Being personable, a talented musician and good athlete, Holmes always seemed to find a way to get by. And it helped that he was never one to shy away from going nose first into the proverbial grindstone.Holmes said he developed his work ethic by watching his father struggle financially to support the family.His father worked in the Bethlehem Steel Plant in Buffalo, as a janitor at the church and when it snowed, he drove a plow truck.“It really wasn’t until I went into the Army (and served for three years during the Vietnam era) that I began to understand what it meant to be bi-racial and I began to explore my racial and cultural identity,” he said.The irony is not lost on Holmes that his birthplace of Great Britain now has an American-born, bi-racial royal family member in Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, the former Meghan Markle.“There are people over there who are still pretty uptight about that fact,” he said.Holmes experienced his personal “watershed moment” when he met President Barack Obama for the first time, early in Obama’s first term.“I wasn’t expecting this reaction,” he said. “But, I burst into tears and wept uncontrollably. Here was someone like me, who is bi-racial, who had attained the office of President of the United States. It just hit me all at once, and my emotions took over.”Tears notwithstanding, Holmes’ career journey has been largely a happy one. He became good friends with R&B superstar Roberta Flack, and one of his current good buddies is fellow singing legend, Jack Jones. When informed he will be following the Beach Boys on the Music Pier stage, he advised us to check out Jones’ version of the Brian Wilson classic “God Only Knows.”Holmes recently had the honor of seeing a major casino in Vegas name a showroom after him, and in 2007 married Kelly Clinton. Sunday night’s show should reflect his current station in life and the show business community.“I’m going to be reaching back to my days performing in Atlantic City, and some things from the CD,” he said. “I’m also going to perform Playground in My Mind, which I have not done in a while, and maybe some fun Harry Belafonte-type things.”He will probably also perform some of his standards such as, “Shouldn’t It Be Easy By Now” and “I Know What I Need.”“It should be a good time for me and I hope for the audience,” he said.last_img read more
