Sugar content in food is the UK’s biggest concern, research has found.Three-quarters of people said they were buying fewer sugary products, after the survey found sugar content was shoppers’ greatest concern.The Bridgethorne Shopper Index, a quarterly survey of shopper opinions, found that 49.2% of respondents ranked sugar as most concerning, compared to 44% for fat content and 41.6% for additives. More than a quarter (28.2%) cited the fact that sugar caused health problems as their principal concern.John Nevens, joint managing director at Bridgethorne, said this highlighted the continued demand for lower sugar products.He said: “Sugar is clearly the biggest concern, perhaps indicating a long-term shift in shopper and consumer behaviour and attitudes. It would appear that manufacturers and retailers are aware and have proactively addressed shoppers’ desires for clear labelling; over 73% of our respondents think that labelling is well communicated. This is further reflected by the fact that over half of our respondents, 51.6%, felt that no improvements needed to be made to food labelling.“What is clear from The Bridgethorne Shopper Index findings is that the demand and need for lower sugar products will not subside. Long-term global macro health trends alongside revelations in the UK, such as childhood obesity, are making this a matter that neither the retailer nor the manufacturing communities can ignore. It is fast becoming an area of ‘must have’ corporate responsibility.”The survey found that 27.6% said they were switching to lower-sugar products while 21.6% have stopped eating sugary products completely. Furthermore, 30.1% of respondents said they were buying low- or no-sugar food products.The quarterly Shopper Index is a survey of shopper opinions from shopper and category management specialist Bridgethorne, which gauges satisfaction, loyalty and future propensity to purchase.
President Duterte left the country on Monday to attend the enthronement of Japanese Emperor Naruhito. He is supposed to return to the country on Wednesday. MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte was forced to cut short his attendance of the enthronement of Japan’s emperor “due to unbearable pain in his spinal column,” due to what Malacañang said was “unbearable pain” in his lower back after a motorcycle mishap last week. “The Palace, however, confirms that the President has attended the enthronement rites earlier today, albeit carrying a cane to assist him in his walk,” added Panelo. According to Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo, the President was scheduled to return home last night and will meet with a neurologist today for consultation. President Duterte was slightly hurt when he fell off his motorcycle last week as he went for a ride inside the Presidential Security Group compound but it was dismissed as just slight injury./PN “The Chief Executive will thus have to miss the Emperor’s banquet this evening at the Imperial Palace and has requested Mayor Sara Duterte to represent him and attend on his behalf,” said Panelo in a statement Tuesday. “While this was unforeseeable, the public can rest assured that there is nothing to worry as regards the physical health and condition of the President as he gives serious priority thereto in actively serving our country,” he said. President Rodrigo Duterte arrives to attend the enthronement ceremony of Emperor Naruhito of Japan at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Tuesday. AP

Editor’s Note: The Daily Orange decided not to drive to Charlottesville, Virginia for Sunday night’s game between Syracuse and Virginia due to safety concerns stemming from the snowstorm.Syracuse couldn’t become the first team to beat No. 13 Virginia at home this season, falling 73-65 at John Paul Jones Arena on Sunday night.The Orange (13-8, 3-5 Atlantic Coast) pulled within three points of the Cavaliers (15-4, 4-3) with 2:14 left in the game, but a four-point UVA spurt stiff-armed SU’s upset bid. Virginia ultimately bullied SU inside and made the right 3s to pull away in crunch time.Here’s what we learned from the game.1. A well-balanced offense like Virginia’s is the Orange’s worst nightmareAdvertisementThis is placeholder textBasketball logic would say the best offense against Syracuse’s 2-3 zone is one that can shoot the lights out. A glance at SU’s rotation — with no one over 6 feet 9 inches playing meaningful minutes — would say the best offense against this Syracuse 2-3 is one that pounds the ball inside.But ACC play has debunked both of those theories, and Sunday showed us that the best formula to beat the Orange’s quick-sliding zone is a healthy balance of perimeter and post play. The Cavaliers scored 30 points in the paint, 16 of them from Anthony Gill, and made 8-of-18 3s.Syracuse has defended the perimeter well in conference play and, at times, had some success defending proven interior scorers. But a mix of the two was simply too much for the zone to handle. Gill has now scored in double figures in every game this season, and SU head coach Jim Boeheim called clutch shooting by Malcolm Brogdon and London Perrantes the “difference” in the game.“We cannot play defense inside, I think that’s pretty painfully obvious by now. Guys that average five points a game get 18, 19, 20 against us,” Boeheim said in his postgame press conference, posted by Cuse TV. “Our perimeter defense has been pretty good this year, our inside defense is non-existent.“… You know, we can’t, if the guards have to help that much inside then they’re going to be wide-open on the 3-point line. We have to be able to defend better in there, we’re big enough, we’re strong enough, we should be able to defend better in there.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories Syracuse teases comeback but ultimately falls short in 73-65 loss at No. 13 Virginia3 things Jim Boeheim said after Syracuse’s loss to No. 13 VirginiaFast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 73-65 loss to VirginiaSyracuse community reacts to loss against No. 13 VirginiaGrade Syracuse’s performance against Virginia and vote for the player of the game 3. One thing is certain in the ACC (or even in the country) this seasonIt’s been a crazy college basketball season, and that hasn’t stopped at the ACC. But if there’s anything college basketball can hang its hat on after close to a month of conference basketball season, it’s that Virginia winning at home is one of the surest bets around the nation.UVA is now 10-0 at John Paul Jones Arena this season, with wins over West Virginia, Villanova, California, Notre Dame, Miami, Clemson and now Syracuse. To go undefeated at home this season, the Cavaliers will have to mow down Boston College, Virginia Tech, North Carolina State, North Carolina and Louisville the rest of the way.There was also some built-in home advantage on Sunday, with the Orange having to fly in the day of due to Superstorm Jonas. Boeheim said it was the first time a team of his has ever done that, but deflected that it had any on SU’s play.“They’re very good obviously,” Boeheim said. “And here, I think they’ve lost lost once in three years.”Boeheim was close. Virginia’s home record is 40-3 since the start of the 2013-14 season. Comments Published on January 24, 2016 at 11:17 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse 2. SU’s offense can function without Trevor Cooney, but it can’t do enough to winSyracuse made 13 3s and scored a respectable 65 points against a tough Virginia defense, but Cooney’s eight points stand out on the final box score.Michael Gbinije and Malachi Richardson carried the Orange on offense, scoring 24 and 23 points, respectively, while Cooney shot 3-of-13 from the field and 2-of-8 from 3. Cooney scored 14 points in a win over then-No. 20 Duke on Monday, and led SU in scoring with 25 points in a win at Wake Forest last Saturday.But he’s yet to fully capture consistency this season, as evidenced by his down shooting performance against the Cavaliers. After scoring fewer than 10 points just once in 13 non-conference games, Cooney’s done so three times in eight conference games and it didn’t do his team any favors on Sunday.MORE COVERAGE:Syracuse teases comeback but ultimately falls short in 73-65 loss to VirginiaFast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 73-65 loss to VirginiaThree things Jim Boeheim said after Syracuse’s loss to No. 13 Virginia Katherine Sotelo | Web Designer
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The amount of digestible calcium included in pig diets has a direct impact on phosphorus digestibility, but the optimum ratio between the two minerals has not yet been found. In a recent study from the University of Illinois, scientists have established a first approximation of that ratio for 25 to 50 kilogram pigs.“Because calcium is an inexpensive ingredient, the thinking was that we could add as much as we wanted. We discovered several years ago that may not be a good approach, because if you increase calcium in the diet, you reduce absorption of phosphorus,” said Hans Stein, professor in the Department of Animal Sciences and the Division of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Illinois. “As phosphorus availability goes down, so does the pigs’ growth performance. Feed intake, and therefore body weight gain and feed efficiency, goes down.”Stein and his collaborators formulated 20 corn-soybean meal-based diets, varying in calcium and phosphorus concentration, and fed them to 240 pigs over four weeks. Diets were formulated to contain 0.15, 0.31, 0.39, or 0.47% standardized total tract digestible (STTD) phosphorus and 0.13, 0.27, 0.42, 0.57, or 0.72% STTD calcium. These values represented 48 to 152% of the STTD phosphorus requirement and 27 to 173% of the total calcium requirement.By the end of the four-week trial, the researchers were able to determine pig growth performance, in terms of average daily gain and gain to feed, as well as incorporation of the minerals into bone.In a separate trial, 120 pigs were fed the same 20 diets for two weeks. For these animals, urine, fecal, and blood samples were analyzed for calcium and phosphorus concentrations.“The results confirmed what we’ve seen before. If you feed too much calcium, in particular with low or marginal phosphorus in the diet, pig growth performance goes down,” Stein said. “We still need to do more work to determine the optimum ratio between the two, but we have definitely confirmed that the ratio is very important.”Stein says most pig diets are currently formulated with marginal phosphorus, partly due to cost of the ingredient and partly because producers want to avoid having to mitigate excreted phosphorus in manure. But diets formulated with too much calcium or too little phosphorus could be reducing pig growth performance.“If someone asked us today, we would say that to maximize average daily gain and gain to feed for 25 to 50 kg pigs, the ratio of STTD calcium to STTD phosphorus should be between 1.16:1 and 1.43:1. However, it is possible that we will have to change that ratio as we get more data. It is still very early,” Stein said.The article, “Requirements for digestible calcium by 25 to 50 kg pigs at different dietary concentrations of phosphorus as indicated by growth performance, bone ash concentration, and calcium and phosphorus balances,” is published in the Journal of Animal Science. Stein’s co-authors include J.C. Gonzalez-Vega, C.L. Walk, and M.R. Murphy.

Built in 1942, one year after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, it was a vestige of the old Naval Training Center and a memorial to the men and women of the “Greatest Generation” who went to war.However, a recent change in the lease has raised fears that the chapel’s historic character could be altered or destroyed. In the last few weeks the McMillan Company, which holds the master lease at Liberty Station, sold the lease for the chapel to a Michigan company called Seligman and Associates.Arlene Paraiso, who is fighting to preserve the chapel’s historic characteristics, said Seligman is using an operator for the property that has moved into other historic sites and ripped everything out. “This company, 828 Venues, they look for historical buildings to revive, and if you look at every single one of them, they’re all gutted to the studs. And when I say gutted, I mean everything is taken out; you see bricks and you see studs and it’s just barren,” Paraiso said.The North Chapel, with its stained glass windows and hand carved wooden pews, is still used for occasional weddings and serves as a regular house of worship for two congregations every Sunday. The church members have been told they won’t be able to use the chapel after December 31.In a statement from the Mayor’s office, press secretary Christina Chadwick said the chapel will be used for a range of events, including but not limited to weddings and religious gatherings. “It will now be up to the operator to work out specific agreements for those interested in using the North Chapel for an event,” Chadwick said.In a letter addressed to the new leaseholder, Mayor Kevin Faulconer wrote that he opposes any plan that affects the historic nature of the North Chapel. “I am writing to confirm my serious concern about any alterations to the chapel’s historically protected characteristics,” the Mayor stated.Two thousand people have signed an online petition to save the old NTC landmark.Several city council members have said they want more information on the new leaseholder’s deal.
