KC: Can the 32-year-old ‘Batman’ Bershawn Jackson fly in the men’s 400m hurdles? Andre: He really needs to get rid of that stupid nickname, but besides that, he’s been the form athlete in what is usually a strong 400m hurdles field. Edwin Moses did win as a 32-year-old in 1987, and I think Bershawn Jackson can match that in Beijing. KC: He has been having a great season and with only one defeat, and with a season best of 48.09 seconds, he looks well set to go sub-48 seconds here as well. Andre: A gold medal for him would be a great story, too, after he came close to quitting the sport last season after he wasn’t able to get into any races due to a string of poor seasons, but still, he isn’t the only one doing well in this event. Johnny Dutch has also been impressive, and at 48.13, can also go sub-48 seconds here and pose a real threat. Also, he’s the last man to have beaten Jackson this year. KC: True, but among all the others who are doing well, the only one I think has an outside chance against Jackson is Michael Tinsley. After some personal problems, he seems to be getting things right, and I will not be surprised if he upstaged Jackson. Andre: I’m not sure Tinsley will finish in the top four! Problems or not, he simply isn’t running fast enough right now and will need to find a huge season best to be a factor for gold. His last and only really good race this year came in early June. That’s a long time ago. KC: Tinsley has done well over the years when it matters most. After being edged out by Jehue Gordon for the gold medal at the last Worlds, he will be even hungrier this time. He has the beating of this field and all respect to people like Javier Culson and Johnny Dutch, but I don’t see any of them ahead of Tinsley for second place. Andre: I’m going with form. I respect Tinsley’s experience, but Dutch is a top-three machine. I think we both agree Bershawn Jackson will win, but I’m picking Dutch to take second and The Bahamas’ Jeffery Gibson taking bronze. KC: Yes, Jackson will go 47 seconds and win his second title in 10 years, but he must be wary of Tinsley, who I pick for second place, with Javier Culson closing out the Trifecta.

Champion sprinter POKER STAR goes for his fifth consecutive victory at Caymanas Park today, this against five opponents in the 3-y-o and up grade one feature for the Lady Geeta Trophy over 1200 metres.From the stables of 15-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, the classy 4-y-o gelding reports to the wicket after winning both races this season, beginning on January 2 with the St Catherine Cup over 1100 metres ahead of CAMPESINO and the Eileen Cliggott Memorial Trophy grade one feature over 1300 metres on February 20 at the expense of PHINEAS.Having been crowned Caribbean Sprint champion on Superstakes day last November, the son of Liquidity-Buyabook has not looked back and it will take a superlative performance from one of his opponents to lower his colours.PERFECT DRAWDespite having to carry topweight of 57.0 kg with Robert Halledeen aboard, POKER STAR will report just as sharp. And coming from a perfect draw on the outside, he looks hard to oppose in this sprint, despite the presence of the consistent UPPA TUNE and the 2014 sprint champion POTCHEEN, both conditioned by in-form trainer Harry Parsard.UPPA TUNE, the mount of promising claiming apprentice Bebeto Harvey from the convenient mark of 52.0 kg, will more than likely set off in front from the number one post position. But I doubt this American 7-y-o horse will be able to escape the chasing POKER STAR in the straight, leaving the back-to -form POTCHEEN, with Jevanne Erwin again in the saddle, to carry the fight late in the race.For obvious reasons, the choice has to be the Alexander Haber-owned POKER STAR.Other firm fancies on the card are BALLON D’OR in the opening race over 1700 metres; the well-forward debutante LOTTERY TICKET in the fourth for maiden three-year-olds; recent winner FORCE DE JOUR to repeat In the eighth; and ROUGH PATRICK for returning trainer Adin ‘Dreddie’ Williams in the closing race.
– Eating – increased energy intake and decreased physical activity may increase risk for excess body fat, and obesity down the line, for example, eating calorie dense foods of high fat, high sugar, and fast foods low in nutrients, sodas and beers. Consider also the proportion sizes of high calorie meals. – Physical activity – modern conveniences such as motor vehicles, remote controls, power machines, etc, have reduced daily physical activity. The lifestyle of men has become sedentary. – Psychosocial – persons use food as a means of coping with stress and negative emotions. For many, eating provides a powerful distraction from loneliness, anger, boredom, sadness, inadequacy. It can be used to combat low moods, low energy levels and low self-esteem. When food and eating becomes the primary means of regulating emotions, binge eating and other unhealthy eating patterns develop. Such practices may lead to obesity or anorexia. It is clear that most weight problems are lifestyle problems. Controlling weight is a matter of adopting healthy behaviours that can be maintained throughout life and will lower the health risks associated with overweight and obesity. Physiological Factors It is clear that most weight problems are lifestyle problems. A few management techniques include: – Changes in diet and eating habits – Increase physical activity and exercise – Get psychological help – Manage emotion – Develop healthy stress coping skills – Positive thinking – Metabolism – this is a key physiological factor. It is the sum of all the vital processes by which food energy and nutrients are made available to the body. The largest component is the Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). High RMR burns more calories and hence less weight is gained. Vice versa for low RMR. – Energy balance – if the energy equation is balanced, an individual burns the same amount of calories as he/she consumes and no weight is gained. If more calories are taken in than expended, weight will increase. – Hormones – hormonal changes, especially in females, play a role in the accumulation of body fat. For example, hormones during puberty initiates the development of breasts, wider hips and a fat layer beneath the skin. The hormone leptin is said to be linked to obesity. – Weight cycling – repeatedly gaining and losing weight (yo-yo dieting) makes the body more efficient at storing calories and more difficult to lose weight. Genes influence body size and shape, body fat distribution, and metabolic rates. Genetic factors also affect the ease with which weight is gained and where on the body it is added. If both parents are overweight, it is very likely that their children will be overweight. – Being overweight or obese isn’t something to take lightly. These conditions greatly raise risks for other health problems. Excess body fat increases a person’s risk of developing numerous diseases and unhealthy conditions. Obesity is one of six controllable risk factors for heart disease. It also increases risk for other forms of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancers, diabetes, gall bladder disease, respiratory problems, joint diseases, skin problems, impaired immune function and sleep disorders. – Obese people have an overall mortality rate almost twice that of non-obese people. Studies have shown that women who gain more than 22 pounds since they were 18 years old have a sevenfold increase in the risk of heart disease. Studies also confirmed that overweight and obesity shorten lives. – Scientific evidence shows that the way people store fat affects their risk for disease. Statistics show that obese individuals with a lot of abdominal fat are clearly at higher risk than others with a similar amount of body fat stored in other areas (hip, thigh, gluteal). Evidence also indicates that those whose fat deposits around internal organs have an even greater risk for diseases than those with fat deposits beneath the skin. Controlling body weight is really a matter of controlling body fat. The most important consideration for health is not total weight but body composition (proportion of fat to lean mass). Many persons who are ‘overweight’ are also ‘over fat’ and the health risks faced are due to the latter condition. The secret to managing body weight is eating moderately and getting regular physical activity. This adoption of healthy and sustainable habits will maximise energy and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. It will also boost body image as persons are becoming obsessed with weight and shape. However, this is sometimes associated with dangerous eating patterns and disorders. Body weight and body composition are determined by multiple factors that may vary with each individual. Such factors include genetic, physiological and lifestyle factors. Health Risks Risk Assessment Techniques Genetic Factors Lifestyle Factors
The future of Jamaica race driving looks bright after some magnificent performances from the younger generation of drivers at the Jamaica Karting Association, Karting Karnival at the Palisadoes International Raceway yesterday. Duncan Stanley, of the Junior Rotax class, was the top performer, winning his four races to top that category with maximum 50 points. He finished ahead of Mark Moodie with 36 points and Stanley said he expected a great performance. “Yes, I did expect it. You have find ways to pass people and once you catch them you can pass them,” he said. The young driver noted he did it before in a different class and it felt good being able to repeat at a higher category. DRIVING SKILLS “I’ve done it at another category but not in this (Rotax Junior) category. It feels really good and it says much about my driving skills. But it was awesome as I pushed through and got the win,” he stated. The most exciting race was in the Minimax Rotax between Ryan Lue and Ryan Chisholm. The pair had two wins each and ended tied on 45 points, but Lue got the edge after topping the qualifying, for which he earned 0.5 points, which made the difference. However, it was Chisholm’s bold move to overtake Lue and win the final race that brought the house down. Nevertheless, Lue was please with his display. “It was hard race, it was close but I knew if I qualified on pole (first) I would get an extra point. “In the last race I though I had it, I was going to pen him back but he took a dangerous risk and I could have hit him so I just let him through,,” he explained. Chisholm, who also lost to Lue last year, was satisfied but thought he could have done better. “I have this trainer in American who showed me how to pass right there and how to keep my line. I have been doing it for some time,” he added. Meanwhile, David Summerbell Jr took the Super Rotax class with 48 points, with Thomas Hall second with 32 points, and the senior Rotax title to 15 year old Justin Sirgany with 47 points. The Rotax Micromax prize went to Ajani Haber (48), while the Comer 50 champion was Phillip McCreath with 42 points.
