The Benefits of Coffee – CSSA vs Conservative Politicians

The Benefits of Coffee – CSSA vs Conservative Politicians

The Benefits of Coffee

If you love coffee, here’s some of the latest good news. • A study of 90,000 Japanese by the National Cancer Center in Tokyo found that people who drank one to four cups of coffee daily had half the liver cancer risk of those who never drank coffee. Researchers aren’t sure why, but they speculate that antioxidants may play a role.

• A study by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health that followed more than 125,000 men and women for more than a decade found that regular coffee drinkers had a significantly lower risk of developing type 2 (or late-onset) diabetes. Studies in Sweden and Finland also concluded that coffee consumption offers protection from type 2 diabetes. Again, researchers aren’t sure why.

• A half-dozen recent international studies showed a positive relationship between drinking caffeinated beverages — including coffee — and lower rates of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

• Other research links coffee consumption with reduced risk of cirrhosis of the liver, colon cancer and asthma.

• A cup or two of coffee can improve endurance in activities such as running, cycling and swimming, according to other research. Coffee has a strong ergogenic effect, meaning it helps people work harder and longer, explains Lawrence Spriet, an exercise physiologist at the University of Guelph who has researched the effects of caffeine on athletic performance for more than a decade. “Even small amounts of caffeine can be quite powerful,” he says.

Cigar smuggling pigeons

Thanks to New York City artist Duke Riley, the American surveillance apparatus faces a new airborne foe: the homing pigeon. Riley trained pigeons to smuggle Cuban cigars from Havana, Cuba, to Key West, Florida, while other birds filmed the 100-mile (160-km) journey with custom-made cameras. The pigeons and their videos will be on display in Riley’s solo show, which opens November 1 at the Magnan Metz gallery in New York. Riley, 41, said he came up with the project at least in part to challenge the idea that the spying capabilities of the US government have become all-encompassing. He started with 50 birds – tagging half of them as smugglers and the other half as documentarians.

CSSA Gun Owners don’t vote Conservative

As time goes on, it becomes clearer that there are many relatively new Conservative M.P.s who don’t really understand firearms issues, and some journeyman M.P.s may have forgotten. That doesn’t bode well for the future of either the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) or firearms owners. As time passes, the CPC seem to be forgetting that we need each other to comfortably coexist.

The CSSA has even taken some heat from a few CPC MPs for our Commentary of September 12. They said they didn’t like being “threatened” into action on the firearms file. It was pretty clear that our Commentary was a prediction, rather than a threat. We wrote: “October 19, 2015. This is the tentative date for the next federal election. Will responsible firearms owners vote Conservative? There is growing evidence that they may not.”

David Suzuki ripped in Australia for being a “phony and know-nothing” Oh. My. God.

David Suzuki on the very first question is revealed as a complete know-nothing. His questioner tells him that the main climate data sets show no real warming for some 15 years.

Suzuki asks for the references, which he should have known if he knew anything of the science.

His questioner then lists them: UAH, RSS, HadCrut and GISS – four of the most basic measurement systems of global temperature.

Suzuki asks what they are.

Anyone interested in global warming should know right there that Suzuki has absolutely no understanding of what he is talking about. In my opinion he is a phoney. (see here)
