She also acknowledges that who she is matters a lot – a much-loved TV host, lesbian and married – but would like to see the distinction rendered moot.

“It shouldn’t be any different than someone on a talk show who’s a heterosexual person. But it means something, and I’m proud of it. I’m really grateful,” DeGeneres said.


She decided it was time to end “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” after 19 years and, before dancing on the daytime stage, celebrated with celebrity guests. Among them: Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis and Bruno Mars, with Jennifer Aniston, Billie Eilish and Pink during the finale on Thursday, May 26.

With the taping recently completed, DeGeneres could heed advice offered by another famous former talk show host and her friend, Oprah Winfrey, who is on the episode that aired Tuesday. Winfrey suggested DeGeneres take some time off.

Will she?

“Define ‘free time,'” DeGeneres said wryly. She’s been busy with one of her passions, home renovations, and will travel to Rwanda to visit an impressive birthday present from his actress wife, Portia de Rossi: the recently completed Ellen DeGeneres campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, a sprawling headquarters for the Gorilla Conservation Project named in honor of the late scientist.

DeGeneres has production deals in place and “ideas that I want to do,” said the actor and comedian who’s been in movies (“Mr. Wrong,” “Finding Dory”) and TV series, including her groundbreaking 1990s sitcom “Ellen”, the first network show with a gay or lesbian main character.

Saban accuses Texas A&M of buying players through name, image and likeness deals https://elixirzdravi.com/saban-accuses-texas-am-of-buying-players-through-name-image-and-likeness-deals/ Thu, 19 May 2022 15:11:00 +0000 https://elixirzdravi.com/saban-accuses-texas-am-of-buying-players-through-name-image-and-likeness-deals/

University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban accuses Southeastern Conference (SEC) rival Texas A&M University of buying top rookies through deals NCAA Name, Image and Likeness (NIL).

Texas A&M, coached by former Saban assistant coach Jimbo Fisher, handed Alabama its only regular season loss last year.

“I know the consequence will be difficult for people who spend tons of money to recruit players,” Saban said at an event in Birmingham, Alabama on Wednesday, explaining how paying players for brand deals was a game-changer. Al.com reported.

“You read about it, you know who they are. We were second in recruiting last year. A&M was the first. A&M bought all the players from their team. Make a deal for name, image and likeness. We didn’t buy a single player. OK? But I don’t know if we will be able to maintain this in the future, because more and more people are doing it. It’s difficult,” added Saban.

Saban, who won seven national championships during his storied coaching career, also complained about Jackson State University (JSU), a Louisiana-based historically black university coached by the NFL Hall of Fame. , Deion Sanders, who reportedly paid a top rookie $1 million to commit to their football program.

“We currently have a rule that says you cannot use name, image and likeness to entice a player to come to your school. Hell, read it in the newspaper! Saban said at the event. “I mean, Jackson State paid a guy a million dollars last year who was a really good Division I player to come to school. It was in the paper and they were bragging about it. Nobody did nothing about it.

Saban was referring to Travis Hunter, a five-star football prospect who flipped his commitment from Florida State to the Louisiana-based HBCU last December.

Sanders denied a rumor that his school paid Hunter $1.5 million to enroll in the program and called Saban in a tweet on Wednesday.

“You better believe I’m going to respond to what LIE Coach SABAN said tomorrow,” Sanders said in a tweet.

“I was & awakened by my son @ShedeurSanders who sent me the article that WE PAID @TravisHunterJr a million to play @GoJSUTigersFB! As PEOPLE, we don’t have to pay our PEOPLE to play with our PEOPLE.

Last June, the Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that the NCAA violated antitrust laws by limiting compensation for student-athletes.

In response to the court’s decision, the NCAA allowed student-athletes to profit from their names, images and likenesses, in accordance with changes made by state lawmakers and school administrators.

Texas A&M’s Fisher has previously called out other SEC coaches who have questioned the integrity of his football program using NIL agreements.

“To have coaches in our league and across this league to say it, clown acts,” Fisher said, according to ESPN. “Irresponsible as can be. Several coaches in our league. And the guys who don’t care about NIL and the transfer portal use it the most and brag about it the most. That’s the ironic part. … It’s a joke It pisses me off.

(Health Day)

MONDAY, May 16, 2022 (HealthDay News) — A national infant formula shortage continues in the United States, with desperate parents scouring shelves for food for their infants.

Millions of babies depend on formula, the only recommended source of nutrition for infants who are not exclusively breastfed.

Two leading pediatricians have advice for parents struggling to find formula, offering a list of do’s and don’ts:

The shortages are caused in part by supply chain issues, and pediatricians fear worried parents are making the situation worse by hoarding whatever they find on the shelves.

“I asked a mom today, ‘If you saw three cans on the shelf, what would you do? Would you buy two and leave one or take all three?'” said Dr. Richard So, pediatrician at the Cleveland Clinic Children’s. . “I think the answer should be, take two and leave one for the next mom.”

Chicago pediatrician Dr. Joshua Wechsler agreed.

“You’re really hurting someone else in the process when you hoard. I know it’s hard to tell someone because when you’re desperate to feed your kids and you have the resources, you’re going to go out and buy what you can,” said Wechsler, assistant professor of pediatrics at Northwestern University School of Medicine and medical director of the eosinophilic gastrointestinal disease program at Children’s Hospital Chicago.

Consider generic or private label formulas.

You may not be able to find your exact brand of formula in the store or online, but by reading the labels of generic or store brand options, you may be able to purchase essentially the same thing you fed your child. , said So.

“Whether it’s Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, Costco, these are just as good as your branded formulas,” So said.

However, talk to your pediatrician before substituting, if your option is very different from what you normally feed.

“If a parent is having trouble feeding, call your pediatrician for the best options,” So said. “For example, if someone is taking a milk-based formula, soy would be OK if that’s what they saw. Or if all they saw was a lactose-free formula, they could try that, buy a box of that, and it’s not going to hurt the baby.”

A discussion with your pediatrician will be especially important if your child has specific nutritional needs or if the alternative formula you’re considering is designed for a baby with specific needs, Wechsler said.

“Sometimes not all babies will tolerate a simple switch to any formula,” Wechsler said. “It’s really more of a concern if you’re giving your kids a formula that’s more broken down in terms of protein – not whole, intact protein, more like chopped peptides or even in some cases amino acids – or if they’re using a formula soy-based and switching to something that is now more milk-based whole protein.”

Don’t make your own formula.

The internet is flooded with DIY emergency formula recipes. Wechsler and So recommended against using either of them.

Babies can develop electrolyte imbalances, nutritional deficiencies and weight loss if your homemade formula is slightly off, pediatricians said.

In the same way, you don’t have to dilute the formula you have to make it stretch. The risks are similar to those of homemade preparations: electrolyte imbalances and weight loss.

“The longer you prolong weight loss, the more it limits growth, and ultimately if it goes on for a while it can affect brain development,” Wechsler said.

Whole cow’s milk, 2% milk or skim milk should not be substituted for infant formula, or mixed into formula to make it last longer, Wechsler said.

“The formula is complete nutrition, similar to what you get from breast milk,” Wechsler said. “Cow’s milk is actually lacking in certain things and can affect the bioavailability of certain minerals. You can end up with things like iron deficiency by feeding too much cow’s milk before 12 months.”

The same goes for goat’s milk, almond milk, and oat milk, so to speak.

“These are all for ages 1 and up,” So said.

Do not use toddler formula as a substitute for formula.

“Toddler formula is different from baby formula,” So said. “Toddler formula does not contain the micronutrients that baby formula does, and your babies may have complications due to the lack of certain micronutrients.”

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has more to say about infant nutrition.

PDP, zoning and 2023 ‘sururgede’ dancers – The Sun Nigeria https://elixirzdravi.com/pdp-zoning-and-2023-sururgede-dancers-the-sun-nigeria/ Mon, 16 May 2022 02:20:01 +0000 https://elixirzdravi.com/pdp-zoning-and-2023-sururgede-dancers-the-sun-nigeria/

A The Igbo saying says that a child who dances a melodious “surugede” does not know that the “surugede” is a song of the spirits. The road to the 2023 general election is filled with many “sururgede” dancers. But, in an effort to outdo each other, they fail to realize that those who beat the drums for them in the bush are possessed by the spirit of greed and disaster.

Take the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), for example. Here is a party that has ruled Nigeria for 16 years. During these 16 years, the Southeast was firmly behind him. In fact, the region played a major role in the formation of the party. Someone like the former vice-president, the late Dr Alex Ekwueme, even had to give up his ambition to be president so that the South West could be appeased for the injustice done to the region with the cancellation of the June 12, 1993 presidential election presumably won by late MKO leader Abiola.

Even in the last general election, the people of the Southeast stood behind the PDP despite all odds. For this reason, they faced different types of marginalization and exclusion.

Are you a 40+ male? Don’t miss Vital Information, it leaves in 2 days! CLICK HERE to READ .

Today, when the PDP is supposed to repay, he started playing Russian roulette with the area. Last Wednesday, May 11, the party dropped zoning and opened its presidential race. According to the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC), it took this action on the recommendation of its National Zoning Committee. The committee, led by Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom, had recommended that the presidential race be left open.

The position of the PDP has annoyed many individuals and groups. The Pan-Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) said the PDP had dug its own grave. The socio-cultural organization Apex Igbo, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, noted that the action of the opposition party was the height of deception and betrayal.

The party had maintained the principle of zoning to give each section of the country a sense of belonging. It is even enshrined in its constitution. This is why the late President Umaru Yar’Adua of the North West took over from former President Olusegun Obasanjo of the South West when the latter completed his term in 2007. When Yar’Adua died in 2010, his deputy, Goodluck Jonathan, from South-South, succeeds him. After Jonathan, the incumbent president, Muhammadu Buhari, also from the North West, assumed leadership. All of this was in line with the principle of zoning in practice both in the PDP and in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party.

The year 2023 is supposed to be the year of the Southeast, having not produced a president since the advent of this democratic dispensation in 1999. Even before 1999, the Southeast suffered from marginalization in ruling circles. The North has always dominated the leadership at the center.

Based on this fact, some patriotic and honest statesmen have advised that the South East be allowed to produce the president in 2023 for the sake of fairness, fairness and justice. Among them, the leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo; the leader of PANDEF, Chief Edwin Clark; and veteran statesman, Tanko Yakassai, among others.

Premature ejaculation and “little joystick” solved in 7 days… Click here for more details .

Pa Adebanjo put it this way: “While it is now the turn of the South and the Southeast, they are now proposing a new theory – the question of merit. If it was based on merit, until today, until your kingdom come, the east alone will produce the president.

Warning that there may not be a Nigeria without zoning in 2023, Chief Clark recently said on Arise Television: “Nigeria stood on three legs, and it has never been stable since the one of the legs was destroyed during the civil war. If the zoning, which will heal the wounds, is not done, there will be no Nigeria. No one will stay in this country as a second class citizen. The North believes its people can be used to oppress other Nigerians. This is unacceptable. The era of that is over. There are many good northerners but the Fulani want to dominate everywhere.

The president of the Middle Belt Forum, Dr. Pogu Bitrus, spoke in the same direction. According to him, “Nigeria cannot be a stable and prosperous country, if some of its constituent parts behave as if they are the natural masters of everyone and everyone exists at their will and to serve them.”

Unfortunately, these voices of reason and altruism have been drowned in the ocean of selfishness. Some northerners who had taken advantage of the zoning arrangement and threatened fire and brimstone when there were attempts to compromise this principle turned 360 degrees against the zoning. Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar warned in 2010 that the PDP should abandon zoning at its peril. Now people like him have been lobbying the opposition party to open up their presidential contest so they too can participate.

Even within the ruling party, some selfish northern interests are plotting to impose Jonathan as their candidate. Unbeknownst to him, as he claimed, some herders bought the 100 million naira presidential nomination and APC expressions of interest forms for him. Here’s someone the North seriously opposed in the run-up to the 2015 presidential election and variously portrayed him as ignorant, weak and incompetent. The interest of those who push him today to run for the presidency is mainly to use it to prevent the Southeast from getting closer to the seat of power. They know that Jonathan can only rule for one term, if he wins. If that happens, the North will return to power for another eight years.

Who’s fooling who? The framers of our Constitution were not stupid when they included Article 14(3), which is on the principle of federal character in the 1999 Constitution. In doing so, they realized that Nigeria is a heterogeneous society where fairness, equity and justice must be anchored to engender peace and unity. The quota system in our school system is part of this conscious effort to accompany each section of the country on our development journey. The rotation or sharing of political mandates is part of this principle.

Today, this system is in danger. If the Southeast is denied the opportunity to produce the president in 2023, it will be the collapse of zoning as we know it. The consequences will be catastrophic.

First, unrest in the Southeast will intensify. The government has only succeeded in banning the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on paper. In reality, the organization is still a powerful force in the region. There are other motley groups who claim to fight for the emancipation of the peoples of the Southeast. Unknown gunmen are among them. They killed security guards in the area without much challenge from anyone.

Second, there may be no elections in the region if there is no candidate from the Southeast as a presidential candidate in any of the major parties. Ohanaeze Ndigbo hinted at this possibility. Those who think this poses no threat to the country should think twice. If a significant part of the country boycotts the elections, it will send a very bad signal to the international community. Investors will never come in such a situation and the country risks becoming ungovernable.

Two legal luminaries, Afe Babalola and Robert Clarke, may have anticipated this scenario when they advocated a caretaker government and extending the current administration’s term by six months, respectively. While Babalola proposed setting up an interim national government to resolve some issues affecting Nigeria, Clarke proposed that Buhari’s term be extended to allow him to tackle insecurity before holding elections in 2023. if their proposals are distasteful, they are a sign that all is not well with our country and its transition program.

2023 will be a defining year for Nigeria. I have said it before and it is worth repeating that the presidential slot of 2023 should be ceded to the Southeast. It is the only major region that does not yet occupy the seat of power in the center. The Southwest has served two eight-year terms and is currently serving two additional eight-year terms as Vice President. Anyone from this area who aspires to be president in 2023 does not like this country. Any northerner who wants to be president after Buhari in 2023 does not want peace in Nigeria. These people are the sururgede dancers. And their dance steps portend a grave danger to the survival of this country.

Re: Fly to paradise at a reduced price

Kasmir“the ignorant” are obviously looking for shortcuts to heaven despite the scriptures which state that all we need is to be “truly born again” and to wait for “the hope of our calling” – Jesus. No one knows the hour when the rapture would occur, in which the saints would be “taken up into the air with Christ” and the dead would rise from their sleep. Only the father knows the time! We are certainly at the end time. The Bible states that people like Pastor Abraham would manifest and exploit “the mugus” among us. Disaster awaits those who take the words of these so-called hook, line and sinker men of God. Pastor Abraham wants to satisfy his stomach and get rich. They look to him rather than ‘looking at the word and at Jesus’ – who is ‘the author and finisher of our faith’. The wrath of God awaits him on the day of judgment when the sheep will be separated from the goats like him. I mourn Abba father over all reprobate souls like him who refuse to sincerely repent IJN!

Bible made us realize that judgment will come from the pulpit because of so much evil that our so-called pastors always do to make money. I believe that the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria have a role to play in purifying our Christianity before the so-called pastors destroy it. How can a pastor ask members to pay money for their trip to heaven? Where did God tell him to charge members?

Many roads are ready to get new names and name signs https://elixirzdravi.com/many-roads-are-ready-to-get-new-names-and-name-signs/ Sun, 15 May 2022 18:49:00 +0000 https://elixirzdravi.com/many-roads-are-ready-to-get-new-names-and-name-signs/

Greater Chennai Corporation studies representations of citizens, organizations to rename roads

Greater Chennai Corporation studies representations of citizens, organizations to rename roads

The Greater Chennai Corporation has started renaming the roads and is considering several requests from stakeholders demanding the renaming of various roads.

The society’s commissioner, Gagandeep Singh Bedi, said the civic body had started receiving letters from various stakeholders to rename the roads in the city. In addition to renaming the roads, the Company installed new name signs, replacing those that were damaged.

A study of 4,013 roads was carried out to erect new name signs. Of these, name signs have been erected on 1,561 roads and the rest will be covered shortly. Before embarking on the task, the municipal authorities will check whether there has been a request from residents to rename a road.

Usually, the civic body does not accept requests for road name changes. But the request will only be accepted if it is deemed valid and supported by reliable information on the history of the place. Under the previous DMK regime (2006-2011), the civic body prepared a list of roads to be renamed in Tamil.

This month the civic body renamed Whannels Road near Egmore Railway Station and the state government issued a government order renaming the road after Annai EVR Maniammaiyar. The route was renamed following a request from Ki. Veeramani, secretary of Periyar Suyamariyathai Prachara Niruvanam. In a letter to the Society, Mr. Veeramani highlighted the centenary celebrations of Maniammaiyar and the role played by her in the Dravidian movement.

The letter mentioned his role in the growth and development of underprivileged children and in providing a higher education for children.

In his letter, Mr Veeramani recalled the unveiling of the Maniammaiyar statue on the road by former Prime Minister VP Singh in 1994. Renaming the road after it would be a mark of respect for his work for the empowerment of women , he said.

A few months ago, the civic body beautified the road and allocated new homes for 59 families of homeless residents. Two of the homeless residents, who recently graduated from a women’s college, have been awarded new homes in the city.

In memory of Vivekh

Similarly, the civic body renamed Padmavathi Nagar Main Road following a request from residents.

Locals wanted to rename the road after actor Vivekh.

Ward 128 road in Kodambakkam area was renamed Chinna Kalaivanar Vivekh Salai. Nadigar Sangam’s Vice President Poochi S. Murugan wrote to Chief Minister MK Stalin on April 18 asking to rename one of Chennai’s roads in honor of the actor. A government order has been issued to rename the road.

Historian V. Sriram said that renaming the roads had become a routine exercise in Tamil Nadu and posed a lot of inconvenience to the residents. Stressful

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Desi ghee contains mostly saturated fats which have a low smoke point.
  2. Therefore, when heated above 180 degrees, these fats denature, forming toxins that increase oxidation in the body.
  3. Therefore, it makes more sense to cook vegetables in oils with a high smoke point – peanut oil, sesame seed oil, or sunflower oil.
New Delhi: Over the years, Desi ghee has earned a reputation among health experts and enthusiasts – dieticians and nutritionists and people who like to stay fit and fabulous by eating healthy. From once vilified for its high calorie content to soon identified as a heart-healthy condiment in moderation, the outlook on it has completely changed. This has motivated many people to switch to desi ghee – from using it as a filling for rotis to baking paranthas and tadkas. However, according to a nutritionist, using desi ghee for tadka may not be wise.

On Instagram, nutritionist Avantii Deshpaande explained why you should never cook vegetables or tadka in ghee.

“I see a lot of people using ghee as a tadka when preparing vegetables. As a nutritionist, I think it’s not advisable. Ghee is a saturated fat, which means it has a point of smoke lower than that of oils.Every time you heat ghee while preparing your sabzis or even giving a tadka, your temperature rises beyond a point and then due to saturation of fatty acids, it will go down. disintegrate and it will decrease the nutritional quality of ghee,” she explains in the Instagram video.

What is the best way to use desi ghee?

According to the expert, the best way to eat desi ghee is to consume it first thing in the morning or by applying it on rotis or putting it in rice or dal.

Why not cook vegetables in desi ghee?

Desi ghee contains mostly saturated fats which have a low smoke point. Therefore, when heated above 180 degrees, these fats denature, forming toxins that increase oxidation in the body. Therefore, it makes more sense to cook vegetables in oils with a high smoke point – peanut oil, sesame seed oil, or sunflower oil.
