Travel Limerick to Nenagh and back on the bikeTHE value for money of a cycle way between Limerick and Nenagh, costing around €880,000, has been called into question. The cycle lane is to be developed as a joint project by Limerick County Council and North Tipperary Council along the old R445, and is due to be completed by the end of the year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, sustainable travel groups have suggested that the money could be spent on more worthwhile projects.James Nix of Plan Better, a joint initiative promoting sustainable transport, told the Limerick Post that if the cycle lanes are not maintained, the money will have been wasted.“If the bulk of the money went on realignment and taking out hazards, fair enough”, said Mr. Nix, who ran in the local elections in 2009.“But if most of the €880,000 is going on red paint that the councils won’t later machine sweep, the whole exercise will be counterproductive”.The funding has been secured as part of a €4million Department of Transport plan to create cycle lanes on national roads, which has been criticised by cycling lobby group cyclist.ie, whose belief is that the plans are a poor use of public money.But Pat O’Neill, senior engineer at Limerick County Council, told the Limerick Post that if the money was not spent on this project, it would be lost.“This is an opportunity that we would have been foolish to ignore.“There will always be criticism of projects, but it wasn’t a matter of choosing where to spend the money. It was use it or lose it.“We are tying the project in with Limerick’s City of Sport title and have had a lot of favourable submissions during the period of public observation”.Mr. O’Neill said the project is to begin in early October, and is to be finished by the end of the year.Providing a preliminary breakdown on where the money will be spent, Mr. O’Neill explained that removing existing road markings would cost around €440,000, signage would be an estimated €80,000, survey work a further €90,000 and civil work about €220,000.“There are 32km of cycle way on each side of the road, so 64km in total. “The existing hard shoulder will be incorporated and we will accommodate existing traffic on the normal road.“We had a lot of submissions querying safety, but there are many measures being taken to ensure this is paramount, such as ‘vibra lines’, which make cars vibrate when they drive over them, to remind them they are too far over.“A lot of cyclists already use the route because it is a flat surface with beautiful scenery, but we will include cycle counters to assess the increase of its use with the completed cycle lanes in place”. The route will run from the Stereame Roundabout on the R445 via the Carrigatoher Junction in Birdhill, through to the Carrowkeel Junction on the east side of Limerick city and from there to the Annacotty Roundabout, immediately west of the Mulcair River.

The coronavirus has driven interest in healthy snacking. But what are the deeper trends? Our research with Harris Interactive explores the relative habits of fitness freaks and couch potatoes, attitudes towards protein, concerns over sugar – and what the most popular snacks are,This research was commissioned by The Grocer and carried out by Harris Interactive independently from Jack Link’s and Peperami.Free download: 10 charts explaining UK attitudes to healthy snacking The protein shake has fallen out of favour. Once a must-have for exercise buffs, the shake is today favoured by only 8% of consumers as a source of protein. That rises to just 9% of respondents with high fitness levels.Instead, protein sources that are viewed as more natural have taken the top spot. More than four in 10 consumers say nuts are their preferred source of protein. And meat snacks are hot on the heels of protein bars, favoured by 14% of respondents.The popularity of these snacks varies by age. Older consumers, for example, are more likely to turn to nuts as a source of protein. While 53% of the 55+ age group named nuts as their top protein source, only 20% of the 18 to 24-year-old age group said the same.Meanwhile, younger consumers overindex on protein bars and meat snacks. More than a quarter of 18 to 24-year-olds favoured protein bars, compared with 10% of over-55s. And 18% of the youngest age group went for meat snacks, compared with 11% of the oldest age group.Whatever form it takes, Trivulzio says the concept of natural protein is gaining ground across all ages. “Natural protein has a broader, everyday appeal connected to healthier eating,” she says. “Meat snacking as a result has flourished, growing 20% in the last year alone.”,Downloads10 Charts_Healthy snacking_Digital PDFPDF, Size 0.91 mb,Jack Link’s and Peperami Consumers are most partial to a healthy snack later on in the day, our survey found. A third of consumers named the afternoon as the prime time for healthy snacking – a pattern that was replicated across all ages and locations. Only a fifth of consumers said they were most likely to eat a healthy snack in the morning.However, that isn’t the full picture. These figures are influenced by the high amount of snacking that takes place in the afternoon, and don’t look at the proportion of occasions that are healthy.Kantar data shows that when consumers do snack in the morning, they tend to lean towards more virtuous options. Indeed, 41% of occasions before noon are classed as healthy [Kantar 52 w/e 29 December, 2019]. That compares with 33% of occasions in the afternoon. “The later the time, the less important health is,” says Kantar.8. Protein is more important to consumers with high fitness levels One is actively recommended by Public Health England, the other is calorific and downright tasty. Britain’s dual appetite for health and indulgence is reflected in its two most popular snacks: fruit and chocolate.Granted, fruit does stand out somewhat among the top choices. Other popular snacks include the decidedly less healthy options of biscuits and crisps – which explains why so many healthy snacking efforts have centred on better-for-you versions of these treats.There are demographic differences in snack choices, though. Women are more likely to choose fruit as a snack option. Indeed, 68% of female respondents said they had snacked on fruit in the past week, compared with 60% of men.And chocolate emerged as a particularly popular snack among younger consumers. In the 25 to 34-year-old age group, 71% said they had eaten chocolate in the past week. That fell to just 55% among the over-55s. In this age group, biscuits were the more popular option, enjoyed by 61% of respondents in the week leading up to the survey.Plus, there were some regional variations: in the north east, only 49% of respondents said they had recently eaten fruit as a snack. That compared with 69% of respondents in Scotland.3. Taste is king when it comes to snacking Taste is king in all areas of grocery, and snacking is no different. More than half of respondents named taste as the most important factor when choosing a snack, while just 17% saw health as their top priority.That’s even true among the most health-conscious consumers. A fifth of consumers with high fitness levels said health credentials were the most important factor in a snack. But taste still won out among this demographic, with 53% of the vote.In consumers who are less fitness-concerned, taste takes on an even higher importance. Only 10% of consumers with low fitness levels named health as a priority, while 62% said taste outweighed all other attributes.This emphasis on taste played out across all demographics. It was slightly more important among older consumers – 62% of over-55s named it as a priority, compared with 50% of 25 to 34-year-olds – but all ages put it well ahead of health.Meat snack manufacturer Jack Link’s stresses that successful snacks appeal to tastebuds first and foremost. “Taste is the most important criteria that the snack must deliver on,” says Laura Trivulzio, marketing director at Peperami and Jack Link’s. “It’s key that brands ensure this is at the forefront of any new product development.”4. Healthy snacking is most important to younger consumers The protein message continues to appeal to gym bunnies more than the general population. Nearly two thirds of consumers with high fitness levels say protein content is either very or quite important to them in a snack. That compares to half of consumers with moderate fitness levels, and less than half of respondents with low fitness levels.Plus, there remains a slight gender bias in engagement with protein messaging. While 60% of men agreed that protein content was important to them, 55% of women said the same.So it’s true that protein continues to hold the greatest appeal among its core demographic of male gym-goers. But Laura Trivulzio of Peperami and Jack Link’s points out that outside these core groups, engagement remains relatively high. Not long ago, interest in protein would have been next to zero outside of the gym crowd. Now, 44% of consumers who exercise less than once a month rate protein as an important factor when choosing a snack.“We’ve seen protein snacking evolve from niche muscle building to having a more mainstream focus, with many incorporating it into an everyday diet for extra energy and vitality,” says Trivulzio.9. Low sugar is the primary requirement for a healthy snack Healthy snacking is one of the most innovative areas of grocery. Suppliers are continually experimenting with ingredients such as pulses, nuts and oats to find the perfect healthy snack.Encouragingly, the public has taken note. Nearly a third of respondents felt there were lots of healthy snacks on the market, and half agreed there were a ‘fair amount’ of options.Interestingly, this satisfaction with ranging is pretty equally spread across the demographics. A third of 25 to 34-year-olds – the age group that is most engaged with healthy snacking – agreed there were lots of options available. A third of over-55s – the age group that is least engaged with healthy snacking – said the same.There was only a slight difference between the regions. In the south west, 38% agreed there were lots of healthy snacks, compared with 28% in the south east.6. …but they don’t always deliver on taste What constitutes healthy? As these survey results show, health means different things to different people. While one person may be concerned with getting their 5 a day, another may be busy counting calories.But these results do show how perceptions have changed over time. Back in the 1990s, a low fat content was considered the prime indicator of health. Today, only 9% of respondents consider that the most important factor in a healthy snack. Instead, the public health messaging around sugar seems to have cut through, as low in sugar topped the list of healthy attributes.Older consumers were particularly concerned about sugar content. Nearly a quarter of the 55+ age group cited low sugar content as the most important factor, compared to 12% of 18 to 24-year-olds. Meanwhile, younger consumers were more interested in getting one of their 5 a day: 23% of 18 to 24-year-olds rated this the most important factor.10. Nuts are the most popular form of high-protein snack 1. Consumers with high fitness levels snack more regularly Given the overriding importance of taste, these figures are critical to the success of the healthy snacking proposition. So it could make somewhat dispiriting reading. A fifth of consumers believe most healthy snacks deliver on taste, but a larger number believe very few make the grade. The vast proportion of consumers lie somewhere in between.However, there are some more encouraging findings here. Consumers who are more engaged with the healthy snacking sector tend to rate it more highly. A quarter of respondents with high fitness levels believed most healthy snacks delivered on taste, while just 15% of respondents with low fitness levels said the same.A similar picture emerged in London, which has a high proportion of engaged consumers. There, 25% believed most healthy snacks made the grade on taste. Only 17% of respondents in the north west agreed.Age groups were the anomaly here. Despite younger consumers buying into healthy snacks more regularly, they weren’t much more positive about their taste credentials. Among the 25 to 34-year-old age group, 21% agreed that most snacks met their demands on taste. That figure was actually slightly higher among the over-55s at 22%.7. The afternoon is the most popular time to eat a healthy snack Younger consumers are more likely to snack regularly and exercise regularly. So it’s no surprise that this fitness-conscious group is particularly keen on the concept of healthy snacking.A fifth of 18 to 24-year-olds always try to have a healthy option when they snack, and 38% aim for a healthy option most of the time. By contrast, only 11% of the 55+ age group said they always aimed for a healthy option, and 32% did so most of the time.As would be expected, fitness-concerned consumers are also particularly invested in the concept. A fifth of respondents with high fitness levels said they always looked for healthy snacks, compared to 9% of respondents with low fitness levels.There are some more surprising demographic differences here too. See the variation between the regions. In London, 21% of consumers said they always went for healthy snacks. That figure fell to 8% in Wales.5. Most customers are satisfied with the number of healthy snacks on the market… Here’s proof that a healthier lifestyle doesn’t equate to eating less. Our survey of over 2,000 Brits found that those with high fitness levels were most likely to snack regularly. Eight in 10 consumers with high fitness levels – classified as those who did moderate to vigorous exercise three times a week or more – said they snacked at least once a day. That compared with just two thirds of consumers who reported doing moderate to vigorous exercise less than once a month.Fitness levels aren’t the only indicator of how often you eat, though. Younger consumers are also far more regular snackers than their older counterparts. Among the 25 to 34-year-old age group, 86% said they snacked at least daily, and 21% snacked as often as three times a day.By contrast, 65% of the over-55 age group reported snacking at least once a day. Only 6% said they snacked three times a day, and 8% said they didn’t snack at all.2. Fruit and chocolate are the most popular snacks

When it comes to the playing squad, the transfer period has been completed by the engagement of Semir Bajraktarevic for Celik that has been reinforced during the winter break, in order to avoid the struggle for survival in the Premier league.On the preparations in Medjugorje will also travel the experienced stopper Jovo Kojic, who is confirmed by the president of Celik, Senad Sarajlic, for SportSport.ba.“Kojic came back from Turkey and will travel with the squad to Medjugorje. I have talked with him and he said that coach from Kazakhstan is satisfied, and that the president of that club comes on Friday and if he accepts our and his conditions about the compensation, we will give him releasing papers. Until then Kojic will train with the team in case of the transfer fails because we had a lot of bad cases in past with the waiting for foreign engagements“ says the first men of Celik.Talented player from Turkey, Yunus Gulnar, will also travel with the team and we count on him seriously in the future.“Gulnar is a young player, who has a great potential and he will travel with the team in Medjugorje.

Indeed, a £40 million drop in Ashley’s asking price since talks began in January is believed to be linked to the falling value of football assets due to a shutdown caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.Manchester City’s run of 11 major trophies since an Abu Dhabi takeover in 2008 transformed their fortunes is an example of the difference wealthy Middle Eastern owners can make.Prior to 2011, City had not won a major honour since 1976. Newcastle’s barren run stretches back to 1969.“They are looking for someone to come in with fresh investment and to get them back where they should be, which is the top end of the Premier League and maybe the Champions League,” former Newcastle manager Graeme Souness told Sky Sports.However, selling out to Saudi investment will see Newcastle become the latest target of criticism over the state’s use of sport to distract from its human rights record.“In recent months, Saudi Arabia has worked hard at ‘sportswashing’ its reputation – trying to use the glamour of sport as a public relations tool to improve its international image,” said an Amnesty International report in February.A world heavyweight title fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz in December and the Spanish Super Cup a month later received strong criticism for taking the millions offered to participate in Saudi Arabia.“It is something we need to be aware of,” added the NUST spokesman.“We need to see the specific details of who is involved once it is confirmed. It is only natural there are concerns.”Share on: WhatsApp Newcastle United fans have long campaigned for the departure of owner Mike AshleyLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Newcastle United fans have long dreamed of ridding the club from owner Mike Ashley, but a potential £300 million ($377 million) takeover backed by the Saudi sovereign wealth fund presents fans on Tyneside with a different dilemma.Retail tycoon Ashley has been deeply unpopular in his 13 years in charge of Newcastle, during which time the club have twice been relegated from the Premier League before bouncing back into English football’s lucrative top flight.British financier Amanda Staveley has held a long-running interest in brokering a deal for one of England’s most passionately supported clubs with attendances often above 50,000 despite years of limited success.Ashley labelled Staveley a “waste of time” when a previous bid to take control collapsed in 2017.However, documents filed last week to Companies House provide a framework for talks between Staveley’s PCP Capital Partners and Ashley.According to reports, 80 percent of the deal would be funded by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund with Staveley providing 10 percent and the other 10 percent coming from British billionaire brothers David and Simon Reuben.The Toon Army have long voiced their dissent as Ashley has tried to cash in on the riches of Premier League television rights deals, whilst investing little on improving the team on the pitch.“There was a famous banner a couple of years ago that read: ‘We don’t demand a team that wins, we demand a club that tries.’ For the last 13 years we haven’t had a club that has tried,” a spokesman for the Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) told AFP.“Under this ownership there has been no ambition, effectively no investment and no hope for a sporting entity that hasn’t been a sporting entity. It’s been there to survive and nothing more.”The prospect of deep-pocketed owners, particularly at a time when most other clubs will be cutting back due to the economic crisis caused by coronavirus, is an alluring one for the Magpie faithful.

It was announced today that Peter Dawson is to retire as Chief Executive of The R&A and Secretary of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews. Mr Dawson will step down in September 2015 after 16 years leading the body which organises The Open Championship and governs the sport worldwide in conjunction with the United States Golf Association. Having succeeded Sir Michael Bonallack as Secretary of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club in 1999, Mr Dawson took over in an important period in the Club’s history. In 2004, the same year that the Club celebrated its 250th anniversary, the private members’ club formed a separate group of companies to run The Open and conduct its governance responsibilities. This evolution enabled The R&A to focus on its governance role, running successful championships and supporting the growth of the game around the world and the Club to concentrate on catering for the needs of its more than 2,000 Members. The Open Championship has enjoyed continuing commercial success throughout Mr Dawson’s tenure enabling The R&A to invest substantially in supporting the development of golf around the world through Rules education, grassroots initiatives, coaching, the provision of greenkeeping equipment and university golf. The R&A now works with 152 affiliated organisations from the amateur and professional game in 138 countries and jointly administers the Rules of Golf, the Rules of Amateur Status, Equipment Standards and the World Amateur Golf Ranking™ with the USGA. Mr Dawson became the Joint Secretary of the International Golf Federation in 1999 and was a key figure in securing golf’s return to the Olympic Games at Rio de Janeiro in 2016. He was appointed President of the IGF in 2010 and the IGF Board has extended his term of office to 2016. The recruitment of Mr Dawson’s successor will be handled by international executive search firm Spencer Stuart and the position will be advertised this weekend. An appointment is expected to be made in sufficient time to allow for an appropriate handover period in 2015 25 Apr 2014 R&A’s Peter Dawson to retire in 2015

Earlier this season she became one of England’s youngest-ever Curtis Cup players and she is the Scottish women’s open amateur champion. Last season she won English, British and European titles and scored her first victory in America. She has been picked for Team GB for next month’s Youth Olympics.Mimi Rhodes, 16, (Burnham and Berrow, Somerset) was in England’s winning team at the Girls’ Home Internationals and was tied sixth individually in qualifying for the European girls’ team championship. She has been on form all season, reaching the last 16 in the British girls’ championship, taking fourth place in the English girls’ and challenging strongly in the English women’s open amateur.Caitlin Whitehead, 15, is on a winning streak, having captured the girls’ title at the European Young Masters and followed up with victory for Europe in the Asia Pacific Junior Championship in Hong Kong. There, she paired up with Finland’s Sakke Siltala to win the tem prize by eight shots and to also claim the individual girls’ prize. She was also in England’s winning team at the Girls’ Home Internationals.
ON-TRACK CROWD OF 27,259 WITNESS 79TH RUNNING OF ‘GRANDDADDY OF THEM ALL’ ARCADIA, Calif. (March 12, 2016)–In his first-ever try in graded stakes competition on the main track, longshot Melatonin made it look easy in taking Saturday’s 79th running of the Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Handicap presented by San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino in gate to wire fashion under Joe Talamo. Owned by Tarabilla Farms and trained by David Hofmans, the 5-year-old gelding by Kodiak Kowboy won the Big ‘Cap by 4 ¼ lengths while covering the mile and a quarter distance in 2:02.01.Fresh off a 3 ¾ length allowance win going a mile and a sixteenth on Feb. 5, Talamo and his agent, Scott McClellan, lobbied forcefully for a chance to try the deep waters of “The Granddaddy of Them All” on Saturday.“Joe was instrumental in running in this race,” said Hofmans, who, along with Talamo, won his first career Big ‘Cap. “Joe and his agent were insistent that we go. After his last race, he said we have to run here. Joe was convinced after his last race. He said he loves this track, he’s so strong and he had so much horse left, I think he wants to run even farther, and I was convinced he was a miler.“I breezed him seven eighths the other day with Joe and was convinced to go here. Without California Chrome (who is committed to run later in the month in the Dubai World Cup), it opened up. We expected to be on the lead.”Off at 16-1, Melatonin paid $34.60, $13.80 and $6.00. The Big ‘Cap represented his fourth win from 11 career starts and with the winner’s share of $600,000, he increased his earnings to $768,552.“What a tremendous effort,” said Talamo. “I think I need some Melatonin right now to calm down from it…We had a great trip and he broke real sharp. I just put him up there and fortunately he was going so easily. When I got to the first turn, they backed off him a bit so I was able to give him a breather and he opened up turning for home.“I told Elizabeth (wife) when I left for the track today that I thought we had a big chance. I didn’t think we’d win like that but it was pretty exciting…Ever since coming to California, aside from winning the Santa Anita Derby, this was a huge, huge goal of mine. This is one of the biggest races in California and to do it at Santa Anita in front of a crowd (27,259) like this, it’s just icing on the cake.”Ridden by Abel Lezcano, Hard Aces rallied stoutly late to tag favored Effinex by a half length for the place. Off at 22-1, Hard Aces paid $19.20 and $7.20.Effinex, who was second to American Pharoah in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic Oct. 31 and who had been idle since winning the Grade I Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs Nov. 27, was well poised in second position, a half length off the winner a quarter mile from home, but lacked the necessary rally and finished third under Mike Smith.Off at 7-5, Effinex paid $2.80 to show.“He ran great,” said Smith, who had won the last three Big ‘Caps, dating back to 2013 with Game On Dude. “That was his first race back in just over three months…Going a mile and a quarter. I mean, that was impressive…He got to them but by the three eighths pole I felt him take a big breath and once he got his air, he didn’t put his head back down and take off again!”Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Donworth, who was the second choice in the wagering at 5-2, was rank throughout and ran up on the heels of the winner around the far turn, resulting in a stewards’ inquiry. After a brief review, it was determined Donworth, who finished seventh, had caused his own trouble and the original order of finish was confirmed.Fractions on the race were 22.82, 46.28, 1:10.81 and 1:36.47.
