Dubai Charges Moroccan with ‘Assault, Drink-Driving, Stealing Taxi’

Rabat – The Dubai criminal court has charged a Moroccan man with “stealing a taxi, crashing it into a villa and then assaulting two police officers,” the Emirati news outlet the National reported Tuesday.The incident goes back to the early hours of September 13 last year when the 24-year-old Moroccan suspect called a taxi to take him to Mirdif area in Dubai after spending the evening drinking.When the suspect arrived to his destination, he got out of the taxi to bring money to pay the Pakistani taxi driver, according to court hearing. “I dropped him off and he asked me to wait for him so he could get money to pay me,” the taxi driver told the hearing.After waiting for long, the Pakistani driver went looking for the Moroccan man, but left “his car keys in the ignition,” according to the National.The suspect came back, taking advantage of the absence of the driver, accelerated the car and smashed it against a nearby villa.Read Also: Moroccan Athlete Wins 2018 Dubai 270-Kilometer Ultra MarathonNot only did the Moroccan crash the car but he wanted to smash another one as well.“But he didn’t return after entering the house. Then I saw him near the villa using a bicycle to smash a parked Toyota car,” the taxi driver said.The story went on as the suspect assaulted two police officers who came to arrest him.“He repeatedly kicked the back door of our police patrol vehicle as we were trying to get him inside it,” said one of the officers.The Moroccan suspect was charged with “assault, drink driving and damaging property,” reported the National.Since the Moroccan man was blind drunk, he could not remember anything of the damage he caused.“I can’t recall what happened that day,” he told the court.Read Also: Mariam Amjoun, 9-Year-Old Moroccan, Wins Dubai’s Arab Reading Challenge read more

Senators clash with FAA officials over Boeing Max oversight

Members of a Senate subcommittee clashed with Federal Aviation Administration officials Wednesday, contending the agency was too deferential to Boeing in approving the 737 Max.Senators cited reports of lax oversight as the jet and flight control software called MCAS were developed. MCAS has been implicated in two deadly crashes.Rhode Island Republican Jack Reed asked about a report that the FAA let Boeing do an interim fix after an Indonesian Lion Air Max crashed in October, knowing that a safer, permanent fix was needed. The software points the plane’s nose down to avoid aerodynamic stalling.FAA Associate Administrator Ali Bahrami said the fix was reviewed by FAA engineers and in line with normal practices. He said the agency recognized it was urgent to tell pilots how to disable MCAS.The Associated Press read more

TT urged to remain earthquake alert

The other areas around Trinidad will continue to produce their normal annual magnitude output; on average, we expect just over 50 events of magnitude greater than 3.5 every year.On August 21, the country was rocked by a powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 6.9 causing widespread panic and damage to several buildings. No one was killed.The SRC said that the quake, which occurred off the coast of eastern Venezuela, about 130 km west of Port of Spain, with a depth of 127 km, was widely reported as felt in Trinidad and Tobago and neighbouring islands.It said that in addition, during the period 26th-28th January, 2018, there was a burst of more than 20 earthquakes in the Gulf of Paria, about 70 km south-west of Port of Spain; the largest was of magnitude 5.3 km. The SRC said that the activity currently being recorded has little bearing on the larger magnitude earthquakes, like the one that occurred in 1766 with a magnitude of 7.9 “that can happen at any time.“Therefore, we here in Trinidad and Tobago, along with all relevant, regional agencies and communities, must continue to ensure that all necessary measures are in place to respond appropriately to any large magnitude earthquake which may potentially cause significant damage and loss of life,” the SRC added. read more

Check out this geeky NES electric guitar mod

first_imgIf you’ve ever wondered what Harmonix and Activision‘s Guitar Hero franchise would look like on an NES, YouTube’s got more than one great parody videos exploring just that concept.But let’s ask a different question: what would a Guitar Hero guitar controller for the NES actually look like? This incredible custom mod smashing together a vintage NES and an electric guitar probably gives a good idea.AdChoices广告This custom six-string electric guitar uses an old Nintendo Entertainment System console as the body, alongside a standard neck and a hard-tail bridge. A single coil pickup with volume control and an output jack rounds the modifications out.It’s pretty easy to see how this concept would have been adapted by Nintendo back in the 80s, when slot-loading cartridge technology would have probably inspired them to tackle a Guitar Hero peripheral by having a player plug his console into his guitar, and not vice versa.Either way, this is one geeky guitar, and it’s available right now for only $150… an absolute steal, as long as you only want to play Zelda‘s theme and not the game itself.Read more at Get Lofilast_img read more

Gerrard shuts down promising Rangers January transfer report

first_imgRangers manager Steven Gerrard has dismissed reports that his side were considering a move for Wigan Athletic midfielder Nick Powell this window.There were reports on Sunday that the Gers were ready to offer him a pre-contract deal, competing with the likes of Celtic and RB Leipzig for his signature.However, the Rangers gaffer claimed not to know about it as he told Sky Sports via Rangers vital football: “It’s the first I’ve heard of it.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.Signing Powell will be ideal for Rangers who look to end the season on a high as the midfielder has been impressive for Wigan scoring 15 goals from midfield last season to help his club gain promotion to the English Championship.Despite having injury concerns this term, the versatile midfielder has managed to contribute with four goals and five assists to his side’s campaign.It is yet unclear what manager Gerrard is up to but time will tell.last_img read more

CCI Orders Rs 420 Crore Penalty on Hyundai for Unfair Trade Practices

first_imgThe Competition Commission of India (CCI) on Tuesday reportedly imposed a penalty of Rs 420 crore on the Indian unit of leading South Korean automobile manufacturer Hyundai Motor for unfair trade practices.The competition watchdog also found domestic manufacturers Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles Pvt Ltd, which is a part of Mahindra Group, and Premier Ltd in violation of competitive practices. However, these two companies were not fined, Reuters reported citing a CCI statement.According to an Economic Times report, the competition regulator found Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) guilty of indulging in anti-competitive practices as it did not make genuine spare parts freely available in the open market.The fine was calculated at 2% of the HMIL’s average turnover. The company has to deposit the penalty within two months, according to reports. CCI has also asked it to cease and desist from such practices.”The car company was found to be indulging in practices resulting in denial of market access to independent repairers as the latter were debilitated to provide services in the aftermarket for repair and maintenance of cars for want of genuine spare parts,” a CCI statement said.The ET report says that the CCI has also directed HMIL not to impose a blanket condition that warranties would be cancelled if the consumer avails of services of any independent repairer.The CCI order comes about a year after it imposed a penalty of over Rs 2,545 crore on 14 carmakers, excluding the three violators, for indulging in unfair practices in the spare parts market. According to reports, the competition watchdog had in August 2014 said that it would pass a separate order in respect of three car manufacturers — HMIL, Reva and Premier.last_img read more

Warning for Virat Kohli and Indian team Sourav Ganguly makes huge statement

first_imgWith the IPL now in the background, teams are planning ahead and looking at the World Cup. Former India captain Sourav Ganguly believes that while India are a balanced side, Pakistan, with their record in England and in ICC tournaments, always remain a threat and will be one of the favourites.”Pakistan’s record in world tournaments in England is remarkable. They won the Champions Trophy two years ago, they won the 2009 World T20 in England,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by PTI.Pakistan are currently involved in an ODI series against England and have been performing quite well, despite results not going in their favour and Ganguly cited this as an example.”Pakistan always play well in England. You see the last game (2nd ODI) in England. England got 374 and Pakistan just lost by 12 runs. They also beat England in England in Test matches there because of their bowling lineup,” he added.’Do not believe in past records’ Sourav GangulySUJIT JAISWAL/AFP/GettyHowever, he was quick to add that it should not impede the Indian team in any way and with the depth present in the current side, they will be a hard team to beat. Dada also said that both sides need to be at their best when they take on each other, as past records do not count for anything in an India-Pakistan fixture.”I don’t believe in records. Both of them will have to play well on that particular day. India will be a very good side. They will be very hard to beat. A team which has the likes of Kohli, Rohit, Shikhar Dhawan can’t be weak,” the former skipper said.As far as Virat Kohli is concerned, Ganguly believes that his rather poor performance in the IPL will have no bearing on how he performs and leads India in the World Cup as his record in ODIs is nothing short of brilliant. He also said that Kohli has Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni to support him, and that will be a huge asset. India have the depth in their squadIan Kington/AFP/Getty Images”Don’t compare Virat Kohli’s IPL captaincy record with that of India. His captaincy records for India is very good actually. He’s got MS Dhoni in his team as the vice-captain. So he’s well supported,” the captain of the Indian side that finished runners-up in the 2003 World Cup said.Virat Kohli’s team is viewed as one of the favourites leading into the World Cup and while this has its own pressure, Ganguly thinks it will bring the best out of the Indian side.”It’s good that India is under pressure, every other team in the World Cup will be under pressure. You don’t want to turn up like a Nepal or an Ireland where the entire world thinks that you’re not going to win,” he opined.Speaking about the format, the current CAB president believes that since every side will play each other once, it promises to be an interesting World Cup and the top four sides need to be really good to make it to the knockout stage.last_img read more

Panama pushes position to pull tourism

first_imgThe expansion of Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport will see the addition of more than 50 new stores, and a new food court.  It’s all about location, and Panama’s got it, says its Vice Minister of Tourism, Ernesto Orillac.Located in Central America, Panama represents a unique proposition for travelers: not only does it straddle the divide between North and South America, offering a palpable mix of the two continents, but it links the two oceans of the Pacific and Atlantic, most famously with its canal.As such, the nation sees itself as the ideal hub from which to explore many areas of the region.“Panama is a destination that is rising”, Mr Orillac told e-Travel Blackboard, stressing the importance of connectivity to the region.“It is not a destination that will fill an entire plane, but the hub of Panama will make the airlines come to Panama and then connect to all of Central America, South America the Caribbean in less than 45 minutes.“The important thing is not only Panama as a product, but that we can actually lure airlines, flights from different destinations to do multi-destinations and use Panama as a hub.”Mr Orillac was speaking to e-Travel Blackboard at major MICE trade show MITM Americas, which was held at the Intercontinental Playa Resort and Spa in Panama City last week.Attesting to the diversity of Panama, e-Travel Blackboard was in less than one hour taken (by plane) from its bustling capital city to the Caribbean Islands of Bocas del Toro province.

Sofitel French Polynesia celebrates 50 years of iconic overwater bunga

first_imgSofitel French Polynesia celebrates 50 years of iconic overwater bungalowsThe signature overwater bungalow, first invented in the Islands of Tahiti and now the quintessential icon of paradise, celebrates its 50th birthday this year. For travellers looking for the perfect South Pacific escape, staying in an overwater bungalow is a ‘can’t miss experience’. From direct access from a private deck into the world-renown Tahitian lagoons, to lounging on the balcony of a thatched-roof hideaway with all the amenities and service of a first class hotel, the overwater bungalow is the symbol of an ultimate private getaway.To celebrate the 50th anniversary, Sofitel Hotels & Resorts in French Polynesia is offering a complimentary lunch for two people per stay for every booking made in an Overwater Bungalow. This exclusive offer is valid now until 31 December 2017 and can be booked via, or your travel agent.The overwater bungalow was first conceived and built in the lagoon of Raiatea in 1967 by three American hotel owners known as ‘The Bali Hai Boys.’ They took traditional local Polynesian grass huts and set them on concrete stilts over the water’s edge. Soon after, Hotel Bora Bora was conceived and it became the first luxury overwater bungalow resort on the island of Bora Bora. In the 90’s, scientific research indicated that overwater bungalow stilts offered an artificial shelter for fish, which in turn contributes to the protection of the fragile lagoon ecosystem.Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort built its first overwater bungalow in 1996. Since 2006, the hotel has been participating in a local program which forbids all motorised activities around the property in a bid to protect its beautiful lagoon.Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort was originally built in 1979 for the Hurricane movie produced by Hollywood filmmaker Dino de Laurentiis and features 13 overwater bungalows. While, Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island, the only boutique hotel on Bora Bora and on its own private island, has 20 overwater bungalows facing glorious Mount Otemanu.Sofitel Hotels & Resorts in French Polynesia recently introduced a new ‘Horizon amenities’ program, which is available at Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort and Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island. The amenities include a bottle of Champagne on arrival, private in-room check-in, Lanvin amenities, priority seating at all restaurants, shoe shining, express ironing services, and butler service.What exactly is an overwater bungalow?Unlike a typical hotel room, these traditional pandanus-leaf thatched-roof bungalows or villas sit above the turquoise lagoon waters. In many overwater bungalows, tropical fish swim below a glass panel at the foot of the bed; so the blues of the lagoon reflect and fill the bungalow. The overwater bungalow offers a king size bed, luxurious bathroom and a private terrace, where breakfast can be delivered by outrigger canoe. The lapping waves of the gentle spectacular lagoon are just outside and all overwater bungalows have direct access into the lagoon for a private swim with the fish and the rays.

By this time its no secret what the fans Valley

first_imgBy this time it’s no secret what the fans, Valley media, and national pundits think the Cardinals need to do in round one of the 2013 NFL Draft.Sure, the sentiment may be split 50/50 on the Cardinals taking an offensive tackle or quarterback in round one, but that is pretty much the consensus at this point.There is one problem with the pick being a consensus in February though… It’s February, so we have no idea what’s going to happen. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires I have broken down the Cardinals’ biggest needs, then taken the time to list the top ten prospects at each of those need positions: quarterback, pass rusher, interior offensive lineman, and offensive tackle, but does that make it a slam dunk the Cardinals go with one of those positions at seven?Let’s look at it another way and suppose the draft’s first six picks go off like this:Chiefs- Geno SmithJaguars- Dion JordanRaiders- Sheldon RichardsonEagles- Luke JoeckelLions- Eric FisherBrowns- Barkevious MingoThat leaves the Cardinals in a bit of a lurch. They could pull the trigger on Lane Johnson, a guy I called the offensive tackle with the most upside in the draft, but taking a guy like Johnson at seven involves all the risk of taking Levi Brown at five.Is that the way GM Steve Keim and HC Bruce Arians want to start their tenure, reaching for a possible need on a very inexperienced left tackle, albeit with a larger upside than Brown had?Then there is the thought of drafting Chance Warmack at seven. No one, and I mean absolutely no one, would be happier if the Cardinals took Warmack at seven, but there hasn’t been a guard drafted in the top 10 in the draft since 1997. Are the Cardinals and this new regime really brave enough to take that leap? 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact That leaves the list of prospects that fit into what the Cardinals want to do as… shallow.I saw the outcry of what even mentioning a quarterback at seven can cause; that doesn’t mean it won’t happen, but let’s leave that discussion for another day.Guys like Bjoern Werner and Damontre Moore won’t fit into the Cardinals’ 3-4 scheme, in my opinion, as I can’t see them being as effective standing up as outside linebackers and they aren’t nearly big enough to work as 3-4 defensive ends.Who are some prospects that could be available at seven if this is how the draft unfolds and the Cardinals aren’t willing to pull the trigger on young Lane or a quarterback?Star Lotulelei, DT Utah 6-4 320lbsWhile many see the defensive line as a strength, the reality is the Cardinals are thin at both defensive end spots after Calais Campbell and Darnell Dockett. Lotulelei has been compared to Ravens defensive lineman Haloti Ngata, and that comparison should make Cardinals fans even more intrigued if they decided to truly go “best player available.”Star would be able to work into the defensive line rotation early and often, working from nose tackle to both end spots, and upgrade a unit that struggled to stop the run consistently. Adding a player like Vaccaro would make the transition from the Wilson era much easier for Cardinals fans, and may actually improve the Cardinals defense.While the three prospects above won’t address the most glaring needs on the Cardinals’ roster, they are all realistic possibilities if the offensive tackles and outside linebackers are gone early and the team’s brass doesn’t see a quarterback worth taking at seven or the value in taking a guard that early. He also would be insurance for the Cardinals if they decided to let go of Dockett after 2013 or refuse to pick up the club option on Dan Williams’ 2014 contract.Dee Milliner, CB Alabama 6-1 200lbsAs the NFL continues in its copycat ways, we will see teams looking to grab cornerbacks with more size and ball skills than turn and run athletes.The Seahawks have perhaps the best secondary in the NFL with this philosophy, and Milliner is that type of corner.Big, long and athletic, Milliner doesn’t have the elite speed of Patrick Peterson or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but he is a physical ball hawk that loves to play press coverage.The Cardinals have needs in their secondary, as only three corners are under contract for 2013, and adding a talent such as Milliner never hurts.Kenny Vaccaro, FS Texas 6-1 218lbsWhile the Cardinals and Adrian Wilson decide on their future together, one has to wonder at what point the team will look to getting a safety of the future on the roster.Kerry Rhodes played extremely well in 2012, but turns 31 in August and is due $6 million in salary for 2013.Vaccaro is the prototype of the new NFL safety.Big, fast and versatile, Vaccaro lined up all over the field for the Longhorns in 2012, even covering receivers in the slot at times. He attacks the line of scrimmage with a Wilson-like fury against the run, and has improved on creating turnovers.last_img read more

Cyprus rejects Ankaras EEZ claims

first_imgCyprus said it was well within its rights to carry out exploration in a particular offshore area, rejecting Turkish claims as unfounded and beyond any reasonable geographical limits.The Republic was responding to Turkish allegations included in a letter to the UN in April.In a May 4 letter, circulated as a UN Security Council document, the island’s permanent representative, Kornilios Korniliou, rejected Ankara’s claims concerning block 6, stressing that exploration licensed by the Republic was without a doubt inside its exclusive economic zone (EEZ).“The offshore exploration for block 6, declared and licensed by the Republic of Cyprus, is undoubtedly within the exclusive economic zone/continental shelf of Cyprus, in a marine area that lies to the south-west of Cyprus and that has already been delimited, in accordance with the relevant rules of international law, between the relevant opposite coastal States, namely the Republic of Cyprus and the Arab Republic of Egypt, by means of an exclusive economic zone delimitation agreement (2003),” Korneliou said. “The exploration and/or exploitation of block 6 is an exclusive sovereign right of Cyprus in accordance with international law and does not affect the rights of any third State, including Turkey.”The assertions “made on the part of Turkey are thus legally unfounded and beyond any reasonable geographical limits,” Korneliou said.He added that the Republic was determined to uphold and protect its sovereign rights to explore and exploit its natural resources within its continental shelf and exclusive economic zone, using all peaceful means at its disposal, in good faith and within the framework of international law.Turkey claims that part of block 6 falls within its own continental shelf. In a letter addressed to the UN General Assembly dated April 12, Turkey’s permanent representative to the United Nations Feridun Sinirlioglu expressed “grave concern” regarding Cyprus’ “provocative act” to grant an exploration licence for Block 6.The licence was awarded to a consortium of Italian and French oil giants Eni and Total.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Gut reactions are more important than you think

first_imgIt’s not science’s sexiest department but the full significance of what goes on in the gut is only now being realisedBy Jean ChristouIs it time to update the old axiom ‘you are what you eat’ to, ‘your microbes are what you eat’?  Evidence is growing that they’re the ones calling the shots after you’ve downed whatever takes your fancy at a given meal. And, was it really your decision to eat that certain thing anyway or was it a sugar-loving microbe that released a craving-like chemical in your body?Sounds a bit far-fetched. We all know the body carries microbes and bacteria. Sometimes they get out of line and make us ill. But turns out there are more of them than human cells in the body, so yes, they are calling the shots internally at least. There are colonies of different ones like continents on a world map, millions of them populating every organ from skin to nose to mouth to genitals and, more importantly, the gastrointestinal tract (GI) or the ‘gut’ where two-thirds of your immune system is located.Science is increasingly discovering the important role played by the trillions of microbiota that inhabit the human body, how they might possibly be causing cravings for certain foods that they’re partial to, and how they could very possibly play a role in anxiety, depression, obesity and chronic illness when a person’s internal ‘ecosystem’ or microbiome is out of balance.The medical term is ‘dysbiosis’, an imbalance between the healthy and the harmful or opportunistic microbes that can also enter the bloodstream through a ‘leaky gut’ for instance.Opportunistic pathogens thrive in a toxic environmentBut most microbes exist for the benefit of the human body. They digest plant food for us in the large intestine and they break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates into nutrients that the body can more easily absorb. Thousands of species have now been identified, and science has turned its attention to why things go wrong with the microbiome and how it can be fixed. It’s a new way of looking at disease and one that has many in the medical community excited about where it will lead.The topic will be the focus of a workshop on Saturday co-organised by the Biological Society of Cyprus, the Gastroenterology Society of Cyprus and the University of Nicosia Medical School, which will host the event that includes an address by the health minister.Dr George Potamitis, medical gastroenterologist and expert on the microbiome and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, will be speaking at the event on ‘the microbiota and the connection with disease’, he told the Sunday Mail in an interview.He says everyone’s microbiome is as unique as their other biometric data. Every human being has an ecosystem with as many as 200 different species operating in their millions if not trillions.“They play a very important role in the development of the human being and the immune system and everyone has their own characteristics,” he said, referring to the number of species and the ratio or combination in which they live in the body.“With gene technology now we are better able to understand the microbiota,” he added.Potamitis said babies born through the birth canal pick up their mother’s microbial ecosystem as a basic and go on to develop their own unique populations as they grow.“This is very important… the [baby’s] delivery method,” he said. “For example, we see disturbances in [microbial] development when we have caesarean deliveries and this has been extensively studied. That is why normal delivery is very important for a human being.”Dr George PotamitisHe said it has been shown that children born by caesarean do not have their mother’s microbes “in order to protect the GI tract and the development of some substances that help immunity”. Studies have revealed that such infants have picked up their ‘starter microbes’ from their hospital surroundings, the medical staff that handled their births and their mother’s skin.“The microbiota also has a connection with other conditions such as autism,” Potamitis said, adding that children with autism have been found to have a smaller number of good bacteria and more incidents of dysbiosis or imbalance.Links have also been made back to the gut in a number of studies into MS, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s for instance, but there is nothing definitive as yet as large studies have not been done because the science is only now really taking off.“One study from abroad showed that children suffering from gastrointestinal symptoms were improved by experimentally using fecal transplant to improve their symptoms,” Potamitis said.Yes, you read that right. Fecal transplants are the new big thing, and it’s being done in Cyprus as well. Fecal matter is taken from a well-screened gut-healthy individual, processed with a saline solution and placed in the colon of the patient. Potamitis’ clinic in Nicosia has carried out five so far with almost 100 per cent success and some of his patients had serious conditions, he says. There is also a much-touted mouse study where the microbiota of an obese mouse was placed into a thin mouse and it became obese and vice versa, so dieting is not always about willpower it seems.“Changes in the balance of the microbiota is associated with harmful consequences for the host and is connected with different diseases of the GI tract, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and ulcerative colitis,” said Potamitis. “These diseases have as a consequence, inflammation, and we are trying to improve the diversity [of the gut] with fecal transplantation.”Potamitis also said it was looking increasingly likely that dysbiosis has a role in colorectal cancer. He said his clinic is cooperating with centres abroad and there is a currently a huge exchange of knowledge in the field.“Bigger research is needed to be able to apply this knowledge to other diseases. This is the purpose of this workshop to learn and understand how we can utilise this knowledge in clinical practice,” said Potamitis. “In some cases it’s evidence-based and in others it’s empirical data but there is now no doubt about the importance of the role of the microbiota.”He even confirmed that the composition of a person’s internal ecosystem can affect mood and depression. The microbes, he added, are affected by environmental factors and diet and a person’s gene background. “So this is a very complex mechanism, and how it can develop into disease, because the biggest part of the immune system is in the GI tract.”His advice is to take care of the good bacteria and they will take care of you as best they can in the environment under which they live. Opportunistic pathogens thrive in a toxic environment, which can be created within the body by toxins either ingested or from the environment, or even some pharmaceuticals. This provides fertile ground for their proliferation. Antibiotics, for instance not only wipe out the ‘bad guys’ if they have not become resistant, but also the ‘good guys’.So what, or more to the point, ‘who’ are you populating your insides with?Potamitis advises, “improve your good bacteria” for overall health by eating a diverse diet with antioxidants, pre and probiotics such as fermented foods, yoghurt, vegetables etc. He was non-committal on the role of cutting sugar – though those with a Candida overgrowth might have some thoughts on that. Potamitis said diet was a general approach, and balance was beneficial, but as a doctor, the clinical application of the increased knowledge coming out on the role of the human microbiome in curing certain conditions was the focus of the medical community right now. Diet may come later as a major factor, or not.It is generally recommended to eat a diverse diet with antioxidants, pre and probiotics such as fermented foods, yoghurt and vegetablesAnd, by the by, the University of Cyprus has been studying the ‘Cypriot microbiome’ for the past two years to map whether Cypriots have ‘common’ microbiota as far as that’s possible to see and if there is a connection with the local diet.
