By James Morehen Hear more from James and the expert team at Nutrition X through the Ultimate Rugby Guide campaign @Nutrition_X, www.nutritionx.co.uk The type of protein source can also have an effect on the muscle protein synthetic rates. For example, whey protein has a greater rate of synthesis than both casein or soy based proteins. Therefore, straight after exercise or a game it would be ideal to consume whey based sources of protein (white meats) due to the speed at which whey increases the blood amino acid concentrations. Conversely, casein protein is digested and absorbed slower with a prolonged breakdown of its amino acid complex. Therefore, following their world cup games players will most probably consume casein based protein sources pre-bed to supply the muscles whilst they sleep. Milk is great to consume in the evening as approximately 80% of the protein in milk is casein based and 20% is whey based.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS ProteinThe Rugby World Cup squads will be educating all of their players on the importance of proteins. Proteins are not only essential for life but are crucial for many key functions in the rugby player. One function, constantly strived for by rugby players is the synthesis and growth of new proteins to out-weigh the process of protein breakdown. The net result of having a greater summation of synthesis over degradation is an increase in lean muscle mass, a vital component of any successful rugby player. It is important to highlight that of the 20 amino acids used to make proteins, 9 of these are classed as essential, the rest being non-essential. The 9 essential amino acids must be consumed in our diet, as the body cannot make these like it can for the non-essential amino acids.Although, the supplement market is saturated with companies marketing themselves with the biggest content of protein per serving, the greatest anabolic potential or the key to ‘big muscles’, the actual protein requirement for the majority of rugby players can be consumed from food based sources. A motto taught to me early on, and one that I educate my players on, is that “You cant supplement a poor diet, food has to come first before any supplement, lets not substitute a diet with products but supplement it, when and if we have too”.Continuing further, although during the tournament we will witness some very muscular players on our TV screens, the actual protein requirement for a rugby player is still unclear. However, what we do know is that the typical protein requirement for these players is generally higher than the average sedentary Joe Bloggs. With this in mind, can these needs be consumed through a diet alone, or do we need the common ‘shake’ on top? I guess the answer lies with how big the player in question is. For example, an 80kg scrum half consuming 2 g/kg would find it a lot easier to consume his protein requirements from food alone when compared to a 120kg second row, 160g versus 240g total (6 versus ten chicken breasts) respectively.Strategically, it is far better to consume protein throughout the day evenly in pulses rather than bolus ingestions at typical meal times (breakfast, lunch, dinner). In line, it would be advisable for players to consume protein especially before and after gym or field sessions to ensure a positive net balance between synthesis and degradation. Current research suggests that approximately 20-30g (0.3 g/kg) in each pulse is ideal to be consumed after exercise and regularly throughout the day.A common mistake witnessed with rugby players is training in the morning without consuming any source of protein, resulting in a net loss of muscle protein. This is critical, as this habit accumulating over time will witness players beginning to drop weight, but more importantly a gradual loss of lean muscle mass. To overcome this issue, it is key to consume high quality sources of protein in the morning before any exercise. The World Cup Squads will typically have protein stations ranging from scrambled egg, omelette, fish, meat, and milk in the dining hall for breakfast and throughout the day. Overall, the general rule of thumb with protein intake is to consume food based sources 4 times per day spread evenly, prior to and post exercise, to stimulate suitable protein synthesis. This should be a variety of meat, diary, fish, nuts and pulses and for convenience a commercial whey based shake high in leucine content can be consumed if in a hurry or to top up your daily intake. Vegetarian sources can include the legume family, grains like quinoa, beans and tofu. Pre-bed, a casein based shake would provide a slow releasing supply of protein whilst you sleep.In summary, this first two blogs have been written with a goal to educate the lay player. Unfortunately, we are not all part of a World Cup squad and so the likelihood is we have to look after our own nutritional demands and needs daily and throughout the week. The next blog will focus on the importance of getting nutrition correct in the lead up to a game but for now these are the top tips to remember from Blog 1 and 2.Top TipsFood first approachBe prepared and smart with your carbohydrate and protein intakeAlways apply the 3 T’s model to both macronutrientsCarbohydrates must be consumed for rugby training and performance but playaround with the GI of sources and quantity dependent on the phase of the weekThe overall weekly intake of carbohydrate intake will change dailyCarbohydrates will replenish, restore and aid recovery following exercise and agameConsume good quality sources of protein daily every spread evenlyDo not skip protein at breakfastWhey is best pre and post exerciseCasein is best before bedLastly, you can’t supplement a poor diet!

Located in the Altavista subdivision, at the mouth of the Catapilco valley, this work presents an austere housing solution for a second home. The client, who’s a producer and director, wanted innovation but at low cost. That is why the idea of the project arose from the basic geometric figure of the “Box”, placing the private bedrooms on one side and other services on the other. This allows the inhabitant to traverse the space continuously, like a train, without need of orientation or spatial relation.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehIts basic structure consists of a crosslinked truss which runs diagonal to the 5 x 20 meter floor.

When we visit the place, the visual impact of the landscape is what’s going to make the strongest impression in the development of the project, a landscape of mountains, a lake and a secluded forrest of pines.

Another journalist murdered in Haiti HaïtiAmericas Help by sharing this information Organisation According to information collected by RSF, the Senate commission responsible for examining the request for the lifting of Senator Toussaint’s immunity refused to reach a decision. Stating that it was lacking information, it asked the investigative judges for further information on the case. Judge Gassant had issued the request for the lifting of the senator’s immunity when he was in charge of the investigation. The six-senator commission has been studying the request since August 2001.

Shortly before he died, he also criticised those he suspected within President Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s party of seeking to “divert the movement from its principles.” In a letter to Senate Speaker Yvon Neptune, RSF denounced the Senate Commission’s refusal to lift Dany Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity. The commission’s decision was announced on 31 January 2002. Tousssaint is the number one suspect in the assassination of journalist Jean Dominique. “This decision testifies, yet again, to the government’s determined resolve to ensure that light is not shed on the death of Radio Haïti Inter’s director,” stated RSF Secretary-General Robert Ménard. “Following the non-renewal of investigating Judge (Claudy) Gassant’s mandate, this latest decision proves that the farce continues,” he added. “The Senate is merely protecting one of its own, a true baron of the regime, and demonstrating its contempt for the most basic justice,” Ménard concluded.

Reporters Without Borders welcomed yesterday’s decision by a Lima criminal court to acquit Mauricio Aguirre Corvalán of “divulging secrets of national interest to the detriment of the state” for broadcasting video footage of former President Alberto Fujimori holding a meeting with some of his ministers.Aguirre had faced a possible eight-year prison sentence and a fine of 150,000 euros. He aired the footage with Fujimori’s permission in September 2003 on Cuarto Poder, a programme he used to present on Canal 4. Shot in 1998 by Fujimori’s son, the footage was used by Fujimori during his campaign for re-election in 2000.____________________________________________________________13.09.06 – Lima prosecutors hound journalists, requesting eight-year sentence in one caseReporters Without Borders voiced alarm today about the prosecution of two journalists. One, former Canal 4 TV presenter Mauricio Aguirre Corvalán, faces up to eight years in prison for “revealing state secrets” by screening a video he received from former President Alberto Fujimori. The other, freelance reporter Humberto Ortiz Pajuelo, faces a possible four-year sentence for revealing details about a case against a senior intelligence official accused of extortion.“The abuse of authority and judicial harassment evident in these cases can only be motivated by hostility towards the press,” the organisation said. “In the Aguirre case, the charge is all the more grotesque as former President Fujimori himself authorised the taping of the offending video. Would he have given his permission if he thought state secrets were involved?”Reporters Without Borders added: “In the other case, prosecutors are trying to use judicial blackmail to make Ortiz reveal his sources. In both cases, the courts are violating the Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression, which was adopted by the Organisation of American States and ratified by Peru. We therefore call for the cases against these two journalists to be dismissed outright.”On 15 August, Lima prosecutors accused Aguirre of “revealing secrets of national interest to the detriment of the state” in September 2003, when he was the producer and presenter of the programme ‘Cuarto Poder’ on Canal 4. The prosecutors will request an eight-year prison sentence and a fine of 150,000 euros at the trial, which is due to start today.In 2003, Aguirre aired a video showing Fujimori (who was president from 1990 to 2000) chairing a ministerial meeting in 1998 on the border dispute between Peru and Ecuador. It was filmed by Fujimori’s son at the president’s request and, far from revealing any secrets, it was even used by Fujimori in his campaign for reelection in 2000. It was Fujimori’s press office that sent the video to ‘Cuarto Poder’ to illustrate an interview he gave the programme.Pedro Angulo Arana, a Lima prosecutor specialising in bribery and corruption cases, charged Ortiz on 24 August with “committing an offence against the administration of justice” and requested a sentence of four years in prison and damages of 2,500 euros.In an article he wrote in 2004, Ortiz referred to an audio recording indicating that National Intelligence Council chief César Almeyda had extorted money from a senior army officer, Gen. Oscar Villanueva. Judicial officials asked Ortiz to hand over the recording. Ortiz said it was in the possession of a source he refused to identify. Suddenly Ortiz found himself being accused of concealing evidence in the investigation against Almeyda and of wanting to resell the recording to a third party.The prosecutor, Angulo, initially decided not to pursue the case against Ortiz. But he was overruled by a higher court, which force him to reopen the case. Now resident in Miami, Ortiz has said he is ready to go to Peru if the judicial authorities issue a summons against him.

More Cool Stuff Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy The Centers for Disease Control today confirmed the first case of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in the United States. The patient was found in the Dallas area. This is no reason to panic.While Ebola is a very dangerous disease once contracted it is very similar to hepatitis in how it spreads. The CDC suggests the following:-Practice careful hygiene. Avoid contact with blood and body fluids.-Do not handle items that may have come in contact with an infected personâ€™s blood or body fluids.-Avoid funeral or burial rituals that require handling the body of someone who has died from Ebola.-Avoid contact with bats and nonhuman primates or blood, fluids, and raw meat prepared from these animals.-Avoid hospitals where Ebola patients are being treated. The U.S. embassy or consulate is often able to provide advice on facilities.The CDC also reiterates that Ebola CAN NOT be spread through the air, water or through food.It can however be spread by:-Blood or body fluids (including but not limited to urine, saliva, feces, vomit, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola-Objects (like needles and syringes) that have been contaminated with the virus-Infected animalsâ€œEbola is a very serious disease but there is no reason to panic,â€ says Melanie Kohr Vice-President of Clinic Operations for Passport Health. â€œAs long as proper precautions are taken this is something that can be beaten. It isnâ€™t an airborne pathogen, this isnâ€™t something that can be easily spread. If we follow CDC instructions this will eventually be considered just a scare and not something more serious.â€For more information on Ebola visit the CDCâ€™s website at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/If traveling to a region affected by the disease, specifically West Africa, feel free to reach out to one of CDC’s Passport Health locations, visit www.passporthealthusa.com, or call 1-877-499-PASS (7277) to speak with a Passport Health Travel Health Specialist today.
