(TSX:ACM.A) on Thursday.The CRTC said the decision will be posted to its website at 4 p.m. ET.The takeover has been opposed by a long list of companies and groups including many of BCE’s key competitors who have raised concerns it would give the company too much control over content and the potential to negatively affect consumers.Telus Corp.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Aubrey McClendon, a natural gas industry titan, was killed when police say he drove his sport utility vehicle “straight into a wall” in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, a day after he was indicted on a charge of conspiring to rig bids to buy oil and natural gas leases in northwest Oklahoma.Police Capt. Paco Balderrama said McClendon, co-founder of Chesapeake Energy and a part-owner of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder, was the only occupant in the vehicle when it slammed into a concrete bridge embankment shortly after 9 a.m.“He pretty much drove straight into the wall,” Balderrama said. “The information out there at the scene is that he went left of centre, went through a grassy area right before colliding into the embankment. There was plenty of opportunity for him to correct and get back on the roadway and that didn’t occur.”McClendon’s death follows an announcement Tuesday that he had been indicted by a federal grand jury.Balderrama says it’s too early to say whether the collision was intentional. He said McClendon was not wearing a seat belt and that he was driving faster than the 50 mph speed limit.The Department of Justice said in a statement Tuesday that McClendon, 56, was suspected of orchestrating a scheme between two large energy companies, which are not named in the indictment, from December 2007 to March 2012. The companies would decide ahead of time who would win bids, with the winner then allocating an interest in the leases to the other company, according to the statement.In a statement released Tuesday after his indictment, McClendon denied violating antitrust laws.“The charge that has been filed against me today is wrong and unprecedented,” McClendon said. “Anyone who knows me, my business record and the industry in which I have worked for 35 years, knows that I could not be guilty of violating any antitrust laws. All my life I have worked to create jobs in Oklahoma, grow its economy, and to provide abundant and affordable energy to all Americans. I am proud of my track record in this industry, and I will fight to prove my innocence and to clear my name.”Department of Justice spokesman Mark Abueg declined to comment on the impact McClendon’s death would have on the case.McClendon could frequently be spotted in his courtside seats near the Thunder bench in the arena named after the company he founded in 1989 with his friend, Tom Ward, with an initial $50,000 investment. They eventually grew the company into one of the largest independent producers of natural gas in the United States. He left the company in January 2013 amid philosophical differences with a new board of directors, and founded American Energy Partners, where he was chairman and CEO.“Aubrey’s tremendous leadership, vision, and passion for the energy industry had an impact on the community, the country, and the world,” AEP said in a statement. “We are tremendously proud of his legacy and will continue to work hard to live up to the unmatched standards he set for excellence and integrity.”McClendon was renowned for his aggression and skill in acquiring oil and gas drilling rights. As drillers learned to unlock natural gas from shale formations over the last decade, McClendon pushed the company to acquire enormous tracts of land in several states. The strategy landed the company promising assets, boosted the company’s own production and helped fuel the national boom in natural gas production. But it saddled Chesapeake with enormous debt.Chesapeake eventually became victim of its own success. Natural gas prices plummeted along with all the new drilling by Chesapeake and its peers, reducing revenues for the company and making the debt harder to repay.Chesapeake’s 20-acre campus sprawls through an exclusive area of Oklahoma City, its Georgian-style brick buildings surrounded by manicured lawns and sycamore and elm trees.McClendon’s death is the second fatal crash this year connected to the Thunder organization. Assistant coach Monty Williams’ wife, Ingrid, died Feb. 10 after she was involved in a head-on crash in Oklahoma City.Thunder head coach Billy Donovan said he addressed the team after learning of McClendon’s death.“He always treated me very, very well,” Donovan said. “He was a very generous guy, and I’m just really saddened by what happened today.”___Follow Sean Murphy at www.twitter.com/apseanmurphy by Sean Murphy, The Associated Press Posted Mar 2, 2016 1:15 pm MDT Last Updated Mar 3, 2016 at 12:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Feb. 19, 2012, file photo, Aubrey McClendon, left, CEO and chairman of the board of Chesapeake Energy Corp. and Clay Bennett, right, chairman of the ownership group of the Oklahoma City Thunder, watch during an NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets in Oklahoma City.

In a statement, issued on Thursday, Tadamichi Yamamoto, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Afghanistan urged “all parties to the conflict to honour the announced ceasefires and respect this time of reflection, tolerance and solidarity.”Earlier this month, the Government of Afghanistan had announced a temporary ceasefire, starting on the 27th day of Ramadan, 12 June, and running through the end of Ramadan on Thursday, into the third day of the Eid-ul-Fitr festival, which begins on Friday.A few days later, the Taliban also announced a three-day partial ceasefire during Eid al-Fitr.The “historic” announcements ahead of Eid, Mr. Yamamoto said, “will allow Afghan families across the country to come together peacefully in the days ahead, in what is, for now, a temporary respite from war.”“I sincerely hope the sense of solidarity marked by this joyful occasion will continue well into the future, enabling the extension of the ceasefires and leading to the peace that all Afghans want and deserve,” he said.In an  opinion piece for the Washington Post on Thursday, Mr. Yamamoto – who also heads the UN Mission in the country, UNAMA – said that both the Afghan government and the Taliban were “tacitly recognizing the growing popular expressions of frustration with the unending war.””After several years of trying to support peace as the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan,” he writes, “I strongly believe that the elements of a potential deal are now discernible through the haze and dust of war.”Noting that the Eid holiday ceasefire was unprecedented in 17 years of conflict, he said that “both agree that Afghanistan should neither be a haven for global terrorists, nor a threat to its neighbours.” read more

first_imgBayhorse Silver Inc has shipped high grade metallurgical samples (166 –175 oz/t Ag), to identified smelters, as well as to Mineral Solutions, of Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, to receive firm pricing for extracting and refining silver and other minerals from the its shipping grade concentrate processed through its ore-sorter. The 8 kg of metallurgical samples graded 5,452.42 g/t, 5,175.60 g/t and 5,278.25 g/t Ag respectively, were taken from a homogenous 50 kg underground channel sample from the Bayhorse silver mine.The company has a Letter of Intent with Minerals Solutions, a Joint Venture between Liberty Refiners of Hayden, Idaho and Irish Metals of Coeur D’ Alene, to process a portion of its upgraded shipping material directly into pure refinery grade 4 X Nine silver. By grinding its upgraded shipping material to -80 mesh at the mine, Bayhorse is better able to provide material that meets Minerals’ specifications for refining.Upon receipt and acceptance of definitive terms, the company will commence deliveries of upgraded shipping material to Minerals.Bayhorse CEO Graeme O’Neill comments “by upgrading the mineralization to shipping grade, the company is able to reduce transportation costs per ounce, and minimize processing losses that inevitably occur during flotation concentration. This allows for reduced costs in the processing and smelting/refining options available to us as we upgrade our high grade silver bearing mineralization to shipping grade, and we minimize the 10% losses that normally occur during the flotation process. We are very proud to have developed the Bayhorse silver mine at a cost of $1.00 per inferred silver resource ounce”.The company is currently tramming over 1,200 t of already extracted mineralization from the high grade Goldilocks zone, 1,100 ft inside the mine at the extreme western end of the main haulage, to the newly built all weather storage pad. The picture shows that pad ready for all-weather cover installation.The mineralized material is then passed through the crushing circuit, where it is reduced to between 8mm and 20mm – 25mm in size, to allow for greater selectivity when processed through the Steinert XRT ore-sorter at rates up to 40 t/h.The sorter removes up to 95% of the non-mineralized and low grade material from the process stream, increasing the silver grade to the shipping grade of 103 oz/t Ag (3,000 g/t) or better prior to being shipped to the smelter/refiner.last_img read more

first_imgPlateforme d’Elgin : “vraiment un grave accident” selon GreenpeaceDes scientifiques de l’association écologique Greenpeace se sont rendus en mer du Nord à proximité de la plateforme du groupe Total qui fuit depuis maintenant huit jours. Selon eux, dans la zone, il y a “beaucoup de pétrole” sur la mer et il s’agit “vraiment d’un grave accident”. Greenpeace a envoyé hier un de ses bateaux, le “Koenigin Juliana”, pour effectuer des tests à proximité de la plateforme d’Elgin. En effet, après la découverte de la fuite il y a huit jours, Total avait indiqué que lorsque celle-ci s’était produite, du liquide s’était échappé, entraînant la formation d’une nappe fine d’hydrocarbures d’environ 12 kilomètres carrés. Or, selon le groupe, ce condensat est censé s’évaporer et n’entraînera aucun dégât environnemental.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?A l’heure actuelle, même si le site laisse toujours échapper environ 200.000 mètre cubes de gaz par jour, Total continue d’affirmer que “l’impact sur l’environnement” est “relativement négligeable”. Pourtant, un des scientifiques envoyés par Greenpeace a assuré qu’il y avait “beaucoup de pétrole” sur la mer dans la zone et qu’il s’agissait “vraiment d’un grave accident”. Un photographe de l’AFP témoigne également de l’odeur de gaz perceptible dans la zone. Alors que le groupe pétrolier français planifie son intervention sur la plateforme pour tenter d’arrêter la fuite, le “Koenigin Juliana” a passé toute la journée d’hier à la limite de la zone d’exclusion de 3,7 kilomètres instaurée autour de la plateforme. Un canot a été mis à l’eau pour effectuer des prélèvements et mesurer l’impact réel de la fuite sur l’environnement. “Nous sommes au milieu d’une nappe irisée huileuse. Il y a une grande quantité de pétrole sur l’eau. Il y en a partout. Cela fait plusieurs kilomètres de long”, a indiqué à l’AFP Christian Bussau, un des experts de Greenpeace. “Total doit immédiatement commencer à boucher la fuite ou la pollution ne s’arrêtera pas”, a-t-il ajouté.  Le groupe, de son côté, dément la présence de pétrole. Il ne s’agirait selon lui que d'”un condensat léger de gaz, qui ne pose pas de risque significatif” pour l’écosystème.Le 3 avril 2012 à 15:42 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgSadie Bjornsen grew up in Winthrop, Washington and moved to Anchorage to focus on her ski career.(Emily Russell/Alaska Public Media)The U.S. women’s cross-country ski team has four more chances to make history and earn their first Olympic medal. One skier that could help the Americans get there is Alaskan Sadie Bjornsen.Listen nowBjornsen remembers the first time she felt like a star. She was skiing in Europe at the time.“I was racing out of the stadium and they have these giant screens above you so that the spectators can watch and I saw myself on the TV for the first time,” Bjornsen explained.Bjornsen said she was shocked to see herself on the big screen.“But the problem was I was in the race, so I was trying to focus on my race,” Bjornsen said. “At the same time I realized, ‘Wow, that’s me. I’m doing this. This is real. This is what I dreamed of forever as a kid.’”Bjornsen grew up in Winthrop, Washington– a town of about 400 people, but Bjornsen had Olympians living on either sides of her family’s home.With that Bjornsen started dreaming of skiing on the big stage at a young age.“I was in middle school and high school telling all my friends I’m going to go to the 2010 Olympics,” Bjornsen said. “It was kind of the going thing, like, ‘Okay, you’re a little crazy, but okay.’”Bjornsen took that craziness one step further after high school and moved north to ski for the University of Alaska Anchorage. She skied for UAA for one year and then took a year off to train for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.But Bjornsen missed that mark. She was 21 and devastated. She said she even thought about quitting, that was until she talked to Holly Brooks.“Sadie and I are both from Washington state and there’s a big age difference between us,” Brooks explained, “but Sadie has kind of been a phenom since she was born.”Brooks skied at both the 2010 and 2014 Olympics and explained that Bjornsen’s legacy as a star started when she was young.“She was the one who was beating all the boys and everyone was like, ‘Wow, Sadie Bjornsen, Sadie Bjornsen!’ She’s always been good,” Brooks said.So good, that Brooks told her to join the elite team at Alaska Pacific University. Brooks was skiing for APU at the time along with fellow Olympian Kikkan Randall.And Bjornsen did. She got back on track earned a spot on the U.S. Ski team, which meant financial support and better access to training sessions.“And that was kind of enough positive feedback that I was back on the path to my dream of becoming an Olympian,” Bjornsen explained.Still, that path has been anything but easy.Bjornsen has had tendinitis since she was 16 years old. She says just this past summer a few different injuries had her doubting her future.“Here I am having these dreams of winning Olympic medals,” Bjornsen exclaimed, “and I can’t even get out the door and functionally walk around.”But, Bjornsen got healthier, she got stronger, and this season she’s done better than ever. Bjornsen has podiumed multiple times in World Cup races this season.As far as the Olympics go, Bjornsen has her sights set on the 10 kilometer skate race and the 4×5 kilometer relay.“Our women’s team has been 4th place now for four [World Cup] championships,” Bjornsen explained, “so we’re knocking on the door of that medal.”The women’s 10 kilometer skate race airs Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 9:30 p.m. and the 4×5 kilometer relay airs in Alaska on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 12:30 a.m.last_img read more

first_img World’s first foldable smartphone is here, and it’s not from Samsung, Huawei or Apple The premium flagship smartphone market is where the most action happens, but the budget smartphone space is where the money is. Most companies are investing in the affordable segment to win consumers who cannot spend too much on a high-end smartphone. As a result, the mid-range and affordable smartphone category have gotten highly competitive and Samsung is a respected name here in India.Brand loyalty goes a long way and Samsung is highly respected for it and has a vast series of affordable and mid-range phones. Samsung Galaxy A-series phones are well received and the recent Galaxy A50 is worth checking out for its competitive specs and pricing.Launched at Rs 21,000, the Galaxy A50 has since been dropped to Rs 18,490, which adds to the value factor. It comes in 4GB or 6GB RAM options, where the latter is priced at Rs 21,490. The higher RAM is recommended for heavy users and gamers, otherwise, the 4GB RAM is sufficed for most tasks.Here’s how Samsung Galaxy A50 fares in the market.Samsung Galaxy A50 looks more premium than its price tag. The glossy back made out of plastic but it doesn’t give that away easily. The feel factor is also great and the phone is designed in a compact manner to easily fit into hands. I felt the phone a bit slippery, but it’s nothing a silicone case can’t fix. Samsung Galaxy A50 reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanThe Infinity-U display with a U-shaped notch up top is not bothersome anymore. Seeing so many phones with notches, it doesn’t feel odd anymore. But Samsung makes up with its superbright Super AMOLED display spread across the 6.4-inch diagonal area with Full HD+ resolution. It is the best display you’ll get in this price range, after all, it is from Samsung Display, which makes displays for most phones out there, including the iPhones.The blacks are dark and the colours are natural. I found the Galaxy A50 to be best suited for gaming and more for multimedia use. Streaming content on Netflix and Amazon in high-resolution feels too good. The options to switch between adaptive, cinema, photo and basic, as well as night mode and blue filter mode, is simply impressive. Samsung Galaxy A50 reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanThe overall build quality and display of the Galaxy A50 is an absolute winner for me.In some cases, you’ll notice phones that look great have poor cameras or performance. But Samsung Galaxy A50 doesn’t compromise in those areas. In fact, the cameras are quite good for a smartphone in its price range. Featuring a 25-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture, 5-megapixel Depth sensor for Live Focus and an 8-megapixel Ultra Wide lens on the back delivered great results in daylight and well-lit areas.The Galaxy A50 cameras capture great details with true colours, balanced contrast and saturation, and excellent dynamic range. The portraits, thanks to Live Focus, were handled pretty well. The wide-angle shots were surprisingly good and the edge corrections were on point. Samsung Galaxy A50 reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanIn low-light, however, the Galaxy A50 seemed to struggle retaining details and edge detection while shooting with live focus, but the images produced were not bad at all.On the front, the handset features a 25MP snapper with f/2.0 aperture. The results are simply great, better than most phones can offer in the price range. If you take a lot of selfies, Samsung Galaxy A50 is the way to go.Here are a few samples straight out of Galaxy A50 camera roll: 1/11 Samsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sample for wide-angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sample for wide angle shotIBTimes India/Sami KhanSamsung Galaxy A50 camera sampleIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextSamsung Galaxy A50 is powered by Exynos 9610 octa-core chipset paired with 4GB or 6GB RAM. If you’re a heavy user or an avid gamer, the 6GB RAM is recommended, even if it costs a few extra bucks. This is mainly to maintain consistent performance during intense gaming sessions. For most uses, like day-to-day tasks, communication, streaming and browsing, the 4GB RAM model suffices.I ran PUBG Mobile on the Galaxy A50 and it seemed to handle pretty well, except I felt some heat during extended gaming sessions. But the handset didn’t get too hot to handle, partly thankful for that plastic body.For most tasks, multi-tasking with at least two apps at a time, and browsing the net didn’t strain the processor much. The OneUI seems pretty good on the Galaxy A50, but it’s nothing like the fluidic Galaxy S10. But that’s asking a bit too much from a sub-Rs 20,000 smartphone. There were some occasional lags that could tick some users, but that’s just the way it is with this UI. Samsung Galaxy A50 reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanThen, there’s the question of battery life. The 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging is a solid offering. There’s no doubt that the Galaxy A50 can last most people a full day as long as you stick to casual use. With heavy usage, the battery percentage will drop sooner. But on an average, you’ll get the best battery life experience with the Galaxy A50 as it consistently gave me about 16+ hours of runtime.There’s also a 15W USB Type-C charger in the box, which takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to charge the phone from 0-65 percent, which is pretty good in my opinion. Going to about 100 will take nearly two hours. Not so bad at all.Samsung Galaxy A50 offers more than it can handle. That’s what I felt when I was using the in-display fingerprint scanner. Samsung could have simply given the sensor on the back and it would have been fine. The fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy A50 is not quite accurate and most times it required me to place my finger on the dedicated area twice just to unlock. Face Unlock seemed to work faster, but it only does so when there’s light. In a dark room, I had to fiddle with the in-display scanner. Samsung Galaxy A50 reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanI liked other aspects like the inclusion of 3.5mm headphone jack, dual SIM card slots with a dedicated slot for microSD card, FM Radio and Digital Wellbeing. The calls work perfectly fine and the audio quality is great. There’s just one stereo at the bottom, which posed some issues while gaming, but a pair of wired headphones can do wonders there.VerdictSamsung Galaxy A50 is dealing in a dangerous territory where popular rivals like Poco F1, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, and Realme 3 Pro exist. It’s a hard sell, but all those Samsung loyalists aren’t going to regret this choice. The cameras are excellent, so is the battery. The overall design and display quality is the marquee feature for the Galaxy A50. If had to be rated, the Galaxy A50 easily scores a 3.5 out of 5 stars and with the recent price cut, it can go as high as 4 stars.

Man who deactivated Trumps Twitter account thought it wouldnt actually work

first_imgDuysak describes the event as a “mistake.” Specifically, he told us, he never thought the account would actually get deactivated. The identity of the Twitter employee who briefly deactivated Donald Trump’s Twitter account is no longer a secret.The former Twitter employee has finally come forward to share his perspective on what happened that day. Speaking to TechCrunch, Bahtiyar Duysak, who worked as a contractor at Twitter’s San Francisco HQ, says he now thinks his actions were a “mistake.” More surprising, though, he says he didn’t think his actions would actually result in Trump’s account being deactivated.While Duysak, a German national, doesn’t offer much explanation about why he chose to remove the account in the final minutes of his job at Twitter, he apparently thought Trump’s twitter was “was essentially protected from being deactivated over Terms of Service violations.”Here’s how he described that day, according to TechCrunch:Someone reported Trump’s account on Duysak’s last day; as a final, throwaway gesture, he put the wheels in motion to deactivate it. Then he closed his computer and left the building. In fact, it appeared that Trump’s account was essentially protected from being deactivated over Terms of Service violations. After the incident, which Twitter initially said was the “inadvertent” result of an employee’s “human error,” Twitter updated its Terms of Service to specifically reflect why it won’t ban Trump.Even though Trump has violated the company’s policies in the past, Twitter’s updated rules state that “there may be the rare occasion when we allow controversial content or behavior which may otherwise violate our Rules to remain on our service because we believe there is a legitimate public interest in its availability.”On his part, Duysak, who has returned to Germany, says he’s been overwhelmed by media attention following his actions. He says journalists and other continue to “stalk” his social media accounts.And while he says he now regrets his actions, he doesn’t believe he did anything wrong.“I didn’t hack anyone, I didn’t do anything that I was not authorized to do.”center_img The Twitter employee says it was a “mistake.”Image: Richard Drew/AP/REX/ShutterstockBy Karissa Bell2017-11-30 00:52:58 UTClast_img read more

3 A right Royal break in Berlin Germany from £34

first_img3. A right Royal break in Berlin, Germany from £34Be inspired by our adorable ambassadors for all things British, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who are set to drive a Union Jack-liveried Mini through Berlin, for some reason. But ditch the Mini and instead take a city sightseeing tour in a Trabant – the much-loved, and maligned, relic of East German manufacturing. You drive your Trabi while a guide provides the commentary on the sights such as the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie.4. Spring sun in Seville, Spain from £46If you’re failing to shake off the January blues, put the promise of some colour back in your cheeks by booking a break for the spring. The sun will be high in the sky from as early as March in the Andalucian capital, Seville. Blue skies, pleasant temperatures and the scent of citrus blossom on the air make spring the ideal time for a visit if you’re not a fan of hot, hot heat, before it becomes baking in high summer.5. Winter wonders in Grenoble, France from £41You don’t have to be an awesome winter sports enthusiast to enjoy a trip to gorgeous Grenoble. Sitting pretty on the edge of The Alps (there you go – we love The Alps), this French city is more than just a jumping-off point for slope-bound boarders and skiers. If a grand view of snow-draped mountains seen from a café terrace accompanied by a hot chocolate with cream is as close to the action as you want to get, then fine. If hot chocolate be the food of love, drink on.6.

Winter sports in Scotland from £42It’s snowtime, folks. You don’t need to jet off to The Alps to hit the slopes, for you can find exhilarating skiing and snowboarding right here in the UK, as long as there’s snow around, of course. And there is, so consider the Scottish Highlands. A short hop to Inverness puts you within easy reach of Cairngorm, where the less extreme winter sports lover can tackle tubing and sledging too. Or fly to Aberdeen for The Lecht or Glenshee or Glasgow for Glencoe, where the scenery is as good as the skiing.2. Boarding on a budget in the Czech Republic from £26This isn’t the anti-Alps edition or anything, but there are plenty of alternatives to Chamonix and Zermatt for the more financially constricted among us. (See our article on this season’s best value ski and snowboard resorts). Like the Czech Republic. Spindleruv Mlyn, in the Krkonoše Mountains, has 23 lifts and 20 runs with the highest at 1310m. This terrain is unlikely to excite advanced skiers and snowboarders but for learners, why pay twice as much in The Alps when Czech snow will do just fine?

available glucose to the muscles along with antioxidants to reduce inflammation" Larsen points out "while almonds contribute protein more fiber and healthy fats" Yogurt delivers extra protein and vitamins and minerals that are key for nerve contractions and bone and muscle health Kitchen prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F In a small bowl mix 2 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp maple syrup and set aside In a large bowl combine 1 cup oats ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut ½ cup chopped hazelnuts ½ cup slivered almonds ½ cup chopped dried figs ½ cup chopped dried apricots ½ tsp chia seeds a pinch of Himalayan salt and a pinch of cinnamon Add the coconut/maple syrup blend Mix welluse your hands if you like Spread on a baking sheet and bake until golden stirring occasionally Let cool To

Rachel Brathen Originally published in 2014 in Sweden by Bonnier Fakta Reprinted by permission of Touchstone/Simon & Schuster Ultrarunner Jenn Shelton: Oatmeal mole "I used to not eat before running" says Shelton a Patagonia-sponsored athlete (and rock star of ultramarathoning) "Over the years as I started adding more distance to my runs that had to change" But she never in a million years expected oatmeal to be her morning meal of choice: "Id camped way too much in my life to ever eat [the stuff] again" she jokes But then Shelton discovered savory oatmeal dishes and after some tinkering came up with this recipe that calls for bacon avocado eggs broth and mole sauce (the ready-to-eat kind) Nutrition perks: This meal is designed for long-lasting energy says Larson "It contains a good dose of calories and healthy fat from the bacon and avocado along with oats for consistent performance" The fiber-rich whole grains help keep your blood sugar balanced Meanwhile eggs provide muscle-sustaining protein and the salt in the broth and bacon helps replace electrolytes the body loses through sweat she says Kitchen prep: Bring chicken broth to a boil stir in steel-cut oats then reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes (One part oats to two parts broth yields thicker oatmeal; for a creamier consistency add more broth) Heat mole in a small saucepan (Shelton likes the roasted mole sauce from Native Kjalii Foods) Then carefully poach eggs in the mole with the lid on the pan Cook bacon in a saucepan over medium heat until crisp about 10 minutes Remove from pan

starts her day like a lot of us dowith a veggie scramble and toast Nutrition perks: In addition to a high protein-to-carb ratio (which helps keep you full longer) this breakfast boasts the super green kale and its bounty of antioxidants (including vitamins A and C) "The bread supplies the carbohydrates to keep the brain sharp and focused and the muscle stores topped off" Larson adds Kitchen prep: Crack 4 eggs in a bowl and blend with salt and pepper Dice half an onion and sauté in a large skillet over medium heat in 1 tsp of coconut oil until translucent Add about 1 cup of kale and sauté until wilted Pour the eggs into the skillet and cook stirring occasionally until just set Serve on toasted gluten-free bread with hot sauce to taste Skier Lindsey Vonn: Steel cut oatmeal and Greek yogurt

adds protein (17 grams per 6 oz container) as well as a host of other nutrients: calcium vitamin D phosphorous magnesium vitamin B12 and zinc Plus Larson says the sodium and potassium in dairy help balance electrolytes lost as you train Kitchen prep: To cook the oatmeal bring 3 to 4 cups of water to a boil Pour in 1 cup steel-cut oats and stir When the water returns to a boil reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes stirring occasionally until the oats are tender Vonn sweetens her bowl with a bit of agave nectar You may also want to add a touch of sweet to the Greek yogurt with agave
