Forget the breakfast OJ – many juices contain so much sugar they are a health hazard If you think drinking a glass of orange juice in the morning will get you out of eating vegetables later in the day, think again. The level of added sugar present in most fruit juices is so high that it exceeds recommended limits, making the health costs greater than health benefits, according to campaigners. Official advice currently says a 150ml glass of unsweetened fruit juice counts towards your five a day, but excessive amounts of juice or added sugars counteract this. A smoothie containing pulped fruits and vegetables, for example, could include more than one five-a-day portion, but if too many fruits have been used or if they are blended to release too much sugar, it could cause damage to your teeth and contribute to weight gain. The majority of cartoned juice available in supermarkets is sweetened, and according to the campaign croup Action on Sugar they often contain at least six teaspoons to sugar – more than is present in cola.  When considering that the UK population already has trouble keeping sugar additives under the recommended level, drinking sweetened fruit juices only adds to this problem. “Fruit juice is a useful contribution towards our five a day, however, because the process of juicing releases sugars from the fruit we recommend that you try to limit your fruit juice to 150ml a day, including that from smoothies and only consume these and other sugary drinks with meals to reduce the risk of tooth decay,” Public Health England’s Alison Tedstone said in response to the claim. World Health Organisation guidelines say added sugars shouldn’t count for more than ten per cent of the energy we get from food and drink each day, yet the latest data available from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey suggests that people of every age group exceed this, including the majority of working adults aged 19-64.  Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Hackney party mob of 400 in face masks attack police late on Saturday evening near Stamford Hill

first_img whatsapp Lynsey Barber whatsapp Hackney party mob of 400 in face masks attack police late on Saturday evening near Stamford Hill Share center_img Show Comments ▼ A masked mob of more than 400 partygoers attacked police in Hackney late on Saturday night, pelting officers with bottles, bricks and other items after officers were called to reports of a large party.The Met’s territorial support group, dog units and police helicopter all attended the incident just before midnight at Sandford Court and Bethune Road, where many of the group were wearing face masks the police said. “A number of residents had contacted police to complain about the noise levels at the party and it was for this reason that officers attended. To be confronted by hundreds of people and attacked in this way is wholly unacceptable,” said detective chief inspector Cath Edginton said.Several fights broke out among those attending the party, which officers managed to disperse along with the crowds by 2am. A knife was found after a search of the area, however, no arrests have been made.”It is fortunate that none of my officers were injured. I would also like to take this opportunity to appeal to anyone who witnessed the events or has information about the people responsible to contact the police,” said Edington.A local neighbourhood watch group posted video of the incident on Twitter.

U.S. border tax would have negative implications for Canada: Fitch

first_img Canadian trade deficit grew in October Keywords Exports Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Purchase of three icebreakers turns Canada’s August trade surplus into a deficit James Langton Higher oil prices helped narrow Canada’s trade deficit to $4.2B in January Canada would be among the countries most exposed to a possible new U.S. border tax, according to a new report from Fitch Ratings Inc. Related news The credit-rating agency warns that the proposed introduction of a border adjustment tax (BAT) in the U.S. “could have sizeable adverse spill-overs to other countries,” such as hurting current account balances and gross domestic product (GDP) growth for major exporters to the U.S. (including Canada); raising the cost of U.S. dollar-denominated debt in emerging markets; and harming foreign investment flows. The proposals that House Republicans have put forth “would shake up the global tax system, with major implications not just for the U.S., but also for the rest of the world,” the Fitch report states. For example, the U.S. dollar would “appreciate markedly” if the tax is adopted and this would be key to knock-on effects in the rest of the world, the report notes. “Foreign exporters would lose cost competitiveness in the U.S. unless the U.S. dollar fully appreciated to offset the impact of the BAT on import costs,” which would harm exports to the U.S. and GDP growth in these countries, the report explains, adding that that Mexico and Canada are the most exposed to this effect. In addition, countries with significant U.S. dollar-denominated debt on their balance sheets would be impacted, Fitch predicts. The report estimates that Argentina, Turkey, Brazil and Indonesia have the highest proportion of U.S. dollar-denominated debt among large emerging markets. Furthermore, Fitch adds that China’s policy response “could have repercussions and spill-overs to third countries” as well. Nevertheless, Fitch is unclear whether the proposals will be able to pass into law as they face opposition in the Senate and “the White House has so far been largely non-committal.” Photo copyright: daboost/123RF U.S. proposed tax changes lead to interest in cross-border migration Share this article and your comments with peers on social medialast_img read more

Frydenberg’s change would help company directors get away with duping mum and dad investors

first_imgFrydenberg’s change would help company directors get away with duping mum and dad investors Class Actions AustraliaClass Actions Australia is warning Treasurer Josh Frydenberg’s intention to water down Australia’s stock market disclosure laws would weaken the economy by making it easier for company directors to act poorly and dodge accountability.Frydenberg today announced the government’s intention to permanently relax stock market disclosure laws. The Treasurer had originally introduced the changes as a temporary measure to respond to the Covid-19 crisis.“Funny how the pandemic crisis has apparently abated enough to stop JobKeeper, but is still serious enough to warrant permanently watering down corporate responsibility,” said Class Actions Australia spokesperson Ben Hardwick.“The ASX is about to hit an all-time high, and the Treasurer thinks it’s important to offer extra shields to company directors to avoid accountability. It’s madness.“Australia’s robust stock market disclosure laws mean investors can operate from a position of knowledge. Australian directors know they have to be open with the market or they might be accountable to their investors through a class action. Josh Frydenberg is apparently uncomfortable with this situation.“His plan to water down continuous disclose laws would advantage powerful company directors over mum and dad investors.”Mr Hardwick said he thought it was unlikely the government’s new laws would make it through the Senate, because they were not just morally wrong, but economically irresponsible.“Robust disclosure requirements and class actions are our economy’s best friend,” he said.“If you truly believe in markets then you’ll consider transparency and accountability to be good things, because they allow investment to flow rationally. If, however, you prefer crony capitalism and protecting corporations from consequences then you’ll take a different view.“Josh Frydenberg has revealed his hand with this decision, but I suspect the Senate crossbench may have greater integrity when it comes to defending the true interests of investors and our markets.“The last thing we should want is for Australia to develop an international reputation as a jurisdiction that’s soft on corporate misbehaviour. That’s a surefire way to dry up investment.” /Public Release. This material comes from the originating organization and may be of a point-in-time nature, edited for clarity, style and length.

Union to Fight Mass Redundancies at Macquarie Uni

first_imgUnion to Fight Mass Redundancies at Macquarie Uni The National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) will fight plans, announced yesterday, to make over 100 staff redundant at Macquarie University.Macquarie University management have announced around 100 redundancies across three Faculties – Science & Engineering, Macquarie Business School and Medicine, Health and Human Sciences. A further round of redundancies is planned for Professional Staff later this year.Associate Professor Nikki Balnave, President of the NTEU Macquarie Uni Branch, said, “The redundancies will have a devastating effect on the University that has already suffered huge staff losses. Three hundred of our Macquarie Uni colleagues have already lost their jobs in the last year. This does not include the hidden workforce of casuals and fixed term employees, hundreds of whom have not been re-engaged in 2021.”“We know that finances are tight for universities, but the answer is not to gut the workforce and delete courses – STEM included.. Universities are crucial to the response and recovery from COVID, yet the federal government seems intent on starving them of funding. Now, more than ever, we need universities to work on new vaccines and teach the next generation of nurses, doctors, pandemic specialists and scientists,” she continued.Michael Thomson, Secretary of the NTEU NSW said, “These cuts are brutal and unnecessary. They will damage Macquarie University and destroy people’s lives and careers. We call on the University management to sit down and negotiate with the Union over alternative measures. If the management doesn’t have the decency to negotiate, then we will fight these callous job cuts.” /Public Release.
