Live in celebrity chef Pete Evans’ dream estate

first_imgMy Kitchen Rules judge Pete Evans (right) — pictured here with co-host Manu Feildel (left) — has put his 10ha property up for rent. Picture: Darren Leigh RobertsCONTROVERSIAL television celebrity chef Pete Evans is on the hunt for someone to live in his sprawling estate close to the Queensland-New South Wales border.The My Kitchen Rules star, who co-hosts the TV show alongside fellow judge Manu Feildel, paid $1.2m for the property four years ago to pursue clean living as part of his “caveman diet” principles.A rustic four bedroom house on the property had been rented out for $620 a week two years ago, with Evans now jacking up the rent by $30 a week to $650. The Round Mountain property owned by celebrity chef Pete Evans.It comes months after the controversial chef’s Brisbane restaurant Asana closed shop, with the keys for that one handed to Canberra’s Fuego Nero Group for their Black Fire Spanish-Meditterrean style joint.Unlike his own personal regimen which is a disciplined high fat, low carb lifestyle, Evans doesn’t seem to have any restrictions on his new tenants other than what a normal landlord would prescribe.

Marijuana and Psychosis

first_imgBreak Point 31 December 2019Family First Comment: Critics will respond, “That’s correlation, not causation.” The only way to prove causation would be to ask half a sample group to experiment with something that may harm them. That’s not ethically possible. By the way, all the studies that made us believe that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer were correlated studies too, but that was enough to convince us all.The pitfalls and perils of marijuana legalization are well-documented, but whenever we discuss that research here on BreakPoint, we are accused of not having the right research. Of course, what that typically means is we’ve used studies that contradict the very vocal advocates of weed.Well, let’s see what happens when we cite The British journal The Lancet which, along with the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association, is considered the “gold standard” for peer-reviewed medical research. It doesn’t get more “real” than being published in The Lancet.A just-published study in the Lancet involving, among others, researchers at King’s College London, compared 900 people who had been treated for psychosis with 1,200 people who had not. Sample participants were drawn from across Europe and Brazil.Both groups were surveyed on a host of factors, including their use of marijuana and other drugs. The study’s authors concluded that “people who smoked marijuana on a daily basis were three times more likely to be diagnosed with psychosis compared with people who never used the drug. For those who used high-potency marijuana daily, the risk jumped to nearly five times.”By “high-potency” the researchers meant marijuana with a THC content of more than ten percent. Today, it’s not uncommon to read of marijuana that’s legally-sold in places like Colorado with THC content above 20 percent and, occasionally even 30 percent! Legalization advocates minimize the exponential growth in potency by saying that twenty or more years ago, Americans didn’t have access to the more potent strains, a.k.a, “the good stuff.”That misses the point by several astronomical units. The point is that those people who daily use “the good stuff” are five times more like to find themselves in a hospital suffering from delusions and hallucinations, to name only two symptoms of psychosis.Now, critics will respond, “That’s correlation, not causation.” And that’s the criticism leveled at journalist Alex Berenson, author of “Tell Your Children: The Truth about Marijuana, Mental Illness and Violence,” a book I recommend highly. But as I heard Berenson say just last week in Denver, “of course it’s correlation and not causation.” The only way to prove causation would be to ask half a sample group to experiment with something that may harm them. That’s not ethically possible. By the way, all the studies that made us believe that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer were correlated studies too, but that was enough to convince us all.Even so, writer Ron Powers doesn’t need a peer-reviewed study to convince him of the link between marijuana use and psychosis. In his 2017 book, “Nobody Cares About Crazy People,” he tells the moving story of his two sons, Dean and Kevin, who were diagnosed with schizophrenia in their late teens.As Powers tells readers, while there is a strong genetic component to schizophrenia, there is no “schizophrenia gene.” Instead, a constellation of genetic and environmental factors make people susceptible to schizophrenia. One of these, as Powers painfully learned, is heavy marijuana use, especially in your teenage years.Of course, some people will tell you that they and most people aren’t mentally ill, so there’s little if any risk. But, for a host of reasons, no one can know that with certainty. In fact, all pronouncements about how safe marijuana legalization is, overstates the case.That’s exactly what happened here in Colorado. The possible pitfalls were denied or downplayed. And since legalization, Colorado has seen a spike in marijuana-related emergency room visits by people between the ages of 13 and 20.Given the well-documented mental health risks, especially to not-fully-formed adolescent brains, the rush to legalization is the height of irresponsibility. An irresponsibility that can shatter lives. And don’t just take our word for it.https://www.breakpoint.org/marijuana-and-psychosis/last_img read more

Australian Open: Djokovic beats Thiem in five-set epic to win eighth title

first_imgRead Also: Aussie Open: Kenin stuns Muguruza to claim first Grand Slam titleHe came back and the fourth set went with serve until a Thiem double fault handed the Serb two break points and he converted to regain control, serving out the set with an ace.Djokovic drew on all his experience to force another break in the deciding fifth set to take a 2-1 lead and kept his foot on the gas to claim an eighth crown from the last 13 Australian Opens.“It wasn’t meant to be tonight,” Djokovic told Thiem. “Tough luck. It was a tough match. But you were very close to winning it.“You know, you definitely have a lot more time in your career and I’m sure that you will get one of the Grand Slam trophies. And more. More than one.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 – Nerveless start –The Serb, 32, was the overwhelming favourite, but the supremely fit and fast Thiem, 26, always had the weapons to trouble him, which he deployed successfully for much of the match, taming his serve and unleashing some explosive groundstrokes.It was a nerveless start from Djokovic, who comfortably held then put big pressure on the Austrian’s serve, with a forehand into the net giving him an immediate break and a psychological edge after some monster rallies.Thiem, though, is as strong mentally as he is physically and he finally got on the scoreboard after another tough service game.And against the run of play, with Djokovic seemingly in control, he broke back, unleashing pinpoint groundstrokes to make the most of some loose Djokovic shots.But the world number two was unrelenting, breaking again as Thiem served to stay in the set, with the Austrian sending down his first double fault of the match at the crucial moment.Remarkably, a rare Djokovic double fault handed Thiem a break to go 2-1 up in set two with the courageous Austrian refusing to go away.The Serb was getting frustrated, looking at his coaching box and pointing at his head.He refocused and once again began attacking the Thiem serve, breaking back for 4-4, pumping his fists when the fifth seed sent a backhand wide.But two time warnings on his serve in the next game rattled Djokovic and he was broken again, with the Serb losing his cool by patting the umpire’s foot at the changeover and telling the official: “Great job… you made yourself famous.”– ‘Tough luck’ –With Djokovic still looking distracted, Thiem served out the set – the first the Serb had dropped in an Australian Open final since 2015.Djokovic appeared dejected and was immediately broken twice in set three as Thiem raced to a 4-0 lead, having won six games in a row with Djokovic imploding.The Serb was heard telling a trainer he was tired and after losing the set, he went for a medical timeout. The indomitable Serb stretched his unbeaten streak this season to 13 but he had to rally from two sets to one down to beat the courageous fifth-seeded Austrian 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in a nearly four-hour marathon. It was his 17th Grand Slam title, moving him within two of Rafael Nadal and three of Roger Federer on the all-time list.“Definitely my favourite court, my favourite stadium in the world and I’m blessed to hold this trophy once again,” said Djokovic.Victory put him alongside his fellow legends as only the third man in history to win eight or more titles at the same Slam after Nadal (12 at the French Open) and Federer (eight at Wimbledon).It also ensured he will once again be world number one when the new rankings are released on Monday, usurping Nadal. Federer remains third with Thiem moving up a place to a career-high fourth.But it wasn’t easy with the Serb looking lethargic and out for the count in sets two and three before regaining his mojo after a medical timeout to grind down the talented Thiem.Djokovic had never before won a Slam final in seven previous attempts when finding himself two sets to one down.“You and two other guys (Nadal and Federer) brought men’s tennis to another level. I am happy I can compete in these times,” said Thiem.“I fell short today but I hope soon I can compete with you again.” Novak Djokovic battled through a five-set thriller with Dominic Thiem to maintain his dominance at the Australian Open Sunday, claiming a record eighth title and returning to world number one in the process.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes8 Fascinating Facts About CoffeeThe Absolute 10 Greatest Shows In HBO History9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsLook At Something Beautiful That Wasn’t Made By A Human Being40 Child Stars Who Look Incredibly Gorgeous As AdultsTop 10 Tiniest Phones Ever MadeBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemSuch A Sweet Life Story Of The Youngest Queen In The Worldlast_img read more

Doyle downs hat-trick in Carlow success

However, the Barrowsiders had more in reserve and made sure of victory when Doyle skipped past two markers and the goalkeeper to plant the ball in an empty net for his hat-trick. Sean Murphy grabbed a 31st-minute goal and added two points as the home side eased clear. Three Gerard Hennelly scores kept London in touch, but they trailed by 1-7 to 0-5 at half-time. center_img Substitute Craig Doyle came off the bench to fire in a spectacular hat-trick as Carlow powered to a 4-17 to 2-13 victory over London in the Leinster SHC at Dr Cullen Park.last_img read more

Gerrard casts doubt on Reds future

first_img Gerrard, who joined the Liverpool Academy at the age of nine and is approaching 700 appearances in all competitions, is out of contract at his boyhood club at the end of the current campaign. While the 34-year-old remains a pivotal player having played in all nine Premier League matches for Liverpool this season , he has cast doubt on whether he will remain with the club beyond next summer. “I can only worry about this season because I’m only contracted until May,” Gerrard said in an interview with the Daily Mail. “As it stands at the moment, I’m here until the end of the season and want to make the most of it. I certainly won’t be retiring this summer. I will play beyond this season. “We will have to wait and see if that’s at Liverpool or somewhere else. That’s Liverpool’s decision. If they don’t come then I will see what’s out there.” Gerrard also came to the defence of controversial striker Mario Balotelli, who has made an indifferent start to life at Liverpool with just two goals in 12 appearances and none in seven Premier League matches following his summer move from AC Milan. Among those to have questioned the Italian’s credentials is Gerrard’s old friend and team-mate Jamie Carragher, who labelled Balotelli as a “panic” buy following the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona over the summer. Yet Gerrard said: “You have to respect Jamie’s opinion. He knows football but it’s too early to get on Mario’s back. “He just needs time to score the goals he needs to prove to people he is worthy of staying here. I am not going to judge him after 10 games. To come in after Suarez was always going to be a big ask and he’s not feeling sorry for himself. He is working hard, doing extra shooting sessions. “I’ve actually been impressed (with) the way he goes about his work. You hear all kinds of stories and rumours before you meet him, but he does all the work. I like the guy.” Press Associationcenter_img Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is keen to continue his career beyond this season and admits he may be forced to move away from Anfield if the club fails to offer him a new deal.last_img read more

ACC welcomes new members to league in New York

first_img Published on July 2, 2013 at 2:48 am Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 The Atlantic Coast Conference took to New York on Monday to welcome its newest members, including Syracuse, the self-proclaimed “New York’s College Team,” to the new-look conference.ACC commissioner John Swofford was joined by representatives from the Orange, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh, the three newest members of the conference, for a press conference at the NASDAQ Headquarters in Times Square. Hall of Fame head coach Jim Boeheim represented SU, with Mike Brey representing the Fighting Irish and football star Larry Fitzgerald representing the Panthers.“Today is an exciting and historic day for the Atlantic Coast Conference,” Swofford said as he began his portion of the press conference. “ … We are moving forward as a true Atlantic Coast Conference.”The conference has long made its footprint in the southern part of the Atlantic Coast with recent efforts to spread as far north as Boston. The addition of Syracuse, though, gives the ACC a hold in the nation’s top media market, New York.Football coaches Frank Beamer and Jimbo Fisher, from Virginia Tech and Florida State, respectively, sat on stage with the representatives from the newest members on stage in New York.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe group ended the day by ringing NASDAQ’s closing bell.“This is part of our new footprint,” Swofford said.Syracuse and Pitt officially joined the ACC in all sports on Monday and UND joined in all sports except football. Louisville will join the three newest members next year, replacing Maryland, which is leaving for the Big Ten.For now, the conference will feature a cavalcade of former basketball champions including SU, Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Maryland.“With the new make-up of the league, I don’t think there’s ever been a league with the potential that this one has,” Boeheim said. “From my point of view it’s an unbelievable basketball conference.”“I think we’ll be the league now getting eight, nine, 10 bids annually,” said Brey, who grew up a Maryland fan and is a former Duke assistant coach.Syracuse provides something different than almost any other school in the ACC. It is the northernmost school in the conference and plays in the Carrier Dome — a venue unlike any other in the league.So what should ACC fans expect if they make the trip up to Central New York, the event’s emcee asked the legendary SU head coach.“Well, they’ll see a lot of people,” said Boeheim, drawing laughs.Mike Krzyzewski and Roy Williams weren’t at the event, but those two, along with Boeheim, will become the figureheads of the new-look ACC.The ACC inked an agreement with the Pinstripe Bowl last week and both SU director of athletics Daryl Gross and Swofford have discussed the possibility of playing the conference’s men’s basketball tournament in New York.A new era of Syracuse and a new era of the Atlantic Coast Conference are upon the sports world as of July 1. The old rivalries are gone, new ones will come, and the ACC has never been stronger.Said Swofford: “This is a milestone day for our league.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
