More than a quarter of adults in Northern Ireland are now classified as obese, according to a Department of Health survey.

Among the survey results, 27% of adults were classified as obese and an additional 38% were overweight.

This represented an increase in the obesity rate from the 2010/11 result of 23%. While obesity levels were similar, men were more likely than women to be overweight.

About three-quarters of children aged 2 to 15 were classified as normal weight (69%) or underweight (5%), while 20% were classified as overweight and 6% as obese.

Since 2010/11, the proportion of children classified as overweight or obese has remained at relatively similar levels.

The department released its annual health survey on Thursday covering the period April 2019 to March 2020. The sample size was 4,085 people aged 16 and over.

Other findings included that nearly three-quarters of those surveyed (71%) described their health as good or very good, with self-rated general health remaining at a relatively similar level over the past ten years.

Less than a third (30%) of people reported having a long-standing physical or mental health problem that reduced their ability to carry out daily activities, with 28% of men and 33% of women reporting problems.

Less than a fifth of adults (17%) are currently cigarette smokers. This is a similar result from 2018/19, but the prevalence of smoking fell by 24% in 2010/11.

People living in the most deprived areas (27%) were more likely to smoke cigarettes than those living in the least deprived areas (10%).

A small proportion of people (6%) said they currently use e-cigarettes, a similar result to the previous year (7%).

About three-quarters of adults aged 18 and over drink alcohol, of which 80% are men and 73% are women.

Less than a fifth (17%) drink above the recommended weekly limits, with men (26%) about three times more likely to do so than women (9%). One-fifth of male drinkers (19%) drank at least three days a week, compared to 10% of female drinkers.

Less than half of people (44%) reported consuming the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables per day, an increase from the 2010/11 result of 32%. Women continue to be more likely to meet the 5-a-day recommendations (50%) than men (38%).

About a fifth of those surveyed (19%) scored well on the GHQ12 (general health questionnaire), suggesting that they might have a possible mental health problem; this is a similar result to that recorded in 2010/11 (20%).

Respondents from the most disadvantaged areas (27%) continue to be more likely to have a high GHQ12 score than those from the least disadvantaged areas (17%).

One-fifth of people (21%) showed signs of loneliness scoring high on the UCLA Loneliness Scale.

Respondents living in urban areas and those in the most disadvantaged areas were more likely to show signs of loneliness than those in rural and least disadvantaged areas respectively.

Pfizer and Moderna fall after Biden administration backs COVID-19 vaccine patent waiver

The United States will advocate for the lifting of patent protection against the COVID-19 vaccine during discussions with the World Trade Organization, Trade Representative Katherine Tai said on Wednesday. The Biden administration “strongly believes in protecting intellectual property,” Tai said in a statement, but the White House will support the waiver given the “extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic.” The administration has faced pressure to back the measure, which aims to boost immunizations around the world – especially in countries with spike in infections, like India – without having to rely solely on exports. These extraordinary times and circumstances call for extraordinary measures. The United States supports lifting of intellectual property protection on COVID-19 vaccines to help end the pandemic and we will actively participate in @WTO negotiations to achieve this. pic.twitter.com/96ERlboZS8 – Ambassador Katherine Tai (@AmbassadorTai) May 5, 2021 Supporters were happy with the news, but soon after Tai’s announcement, stocks from drug companies that produced vaccines, including Moderna and Pfizer, have fallen. It seems to me that the Biden administration has decided to put its weight behind a patent waiver on Covid vaccines. This is what it does to the stock prices of vaccine manufacturers. pic.twitter.com/zwh4Aekmvj – Kiran Stacey (@kiranstacey) May 5, 2021 It is still unclear whether the protections will actually be lifted as the 164 WTO members will have to agree on the issue, but the support of the states- States should definitely move the needle.

The 15 most surprising sex scenes in the movie https://warriorsforchristonline.org/the-15-most-surprising-sex-scenes-in-the-movie/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:30:40 +0000 https://warriorsforchristonline.org/the-15-most-surprising-sex-scenes-in-the-movie/

Let’s face it. Sex sells. This is why almost all movies and TV shows have some form of sex or a mention of the intimate act every few minutes. It has become a staple in life, although it is a bit uncomfortable to watch it alone or with friends and relatives.

RELATED: 10 sex scenes funnier than expected

Sex is rampant across genres, from vulgar comedies to the latest horror sequel, and even in recent animated TV shows. There is no escaping it. Most of the time, a sex scene can be felt a mile away, but there are only a handful of sex scenes that surprisingly stand out of nowhere. Here are the 10 most surprising sex scenes in cinema.

Updated April 20, 2020 by Mariana Fernandes: Sex has become an inevitable part of cinema over the past few decades. And while some are ridiculously bad and do absolutely nothing in the name of advancing the plot, there are plenty of examples that have done the opposite. These scenes are unexpected, shocking, sensual – and they are everywhere. Because ten just wouldn’t cut it, we’ve dug deeper for some of the best sex scenes from movies you’ve never seen coming.

15 Théodore / Samantha in her

Joaquin Phoenix in it

Joaquin Phoenix’s memorable performance in Oscar-winning film Her would have been memorable with or without the sex scene. The idea of ​​a man falling in love with an operating system is enough on its own to intrigue audiences and gain critical acclaim.

However, the addition of a sex scene – in an unusual way, as all relationships are – left everyone in awe. That’s why it was so brilliant in the first place, adding an even more human dimension to a relationship that obviously shouldn’t even be.

14 Allie / Noah in the notebook

It’s one of those situations that you have to imagine as if it was their very first time watching the movie. Yes, it became very clear from the start that Rachel McAdams’ Allie and Ryan Gosling’s Noah were late in the game.

But that doesn’t make the sex scene that followed a heated argument in the rain any less surprising. Especially when you factor in the fact that Allie was very much engaged to another man before said scene took place. Notebook remains one of the most iconic romantic films of all time, with a surprising sex scene to accompany it.

13 Hazel / Augustus in The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault In Our Stars Title

It’s safe to assume that a good chunk of people have yet to wipe away their tears when they think of the blockbuster. The fault in our stars, based on the young adult novel written by John Green. And if you are one of those people, then don’t worry, because you are definitely not alone.

The love affair between two teenagers with cancer was as heartbreaking as it was sweet. No one expected to see Hazel and Augustus go all the way, but the great thing about this particular scene was how accurately it described the awkwardness and fun of a situation we can all relate to – to some extent, of course.

12 Matthew / Isabelle in The Dreamers

While The dreamers is considered pretty hardcore as it used to be, it still doesn’t come close to the original source material. Still, those who were not familiar with the book that inspired the film were quite surprised by the sex scene between Mathew and Isabelle.

It included his watching brother and some pretty horrific shock value, but that’s what ended up defining the movie. Eva Green’s performance here was worthy of accolades!

11 Rose / Jack in Titanic

Just like with Notebook, the sex scene in Titanic is the one to be watched through the eyes of a 90s moviegoer watching it for the first time and not a 2020 resident who has face-to-face sex every day, thanks to marketing and entertainment industry.

The chemistry between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet is searing. But a nude portrait followed by a hot session in a car that’s in a boat? No one saw that one coming. And it remains iconic to this day.

ten Nina / Lily in Black Swan

Darren Aronofsky was not doing family ballet with his 2010 Oscar-winning film Black Swan. Instead, the filmmaker made a sizzling thriller that had Mila kunis and Natalie Portman in a delicate situation that might not have been real.

Most of the film has these two colleagues at odds, but in one scene, perfectly set at 69 minutes, the two actresses are engaged in a highly memorable erotic tangle. If Kunis and Portman were a real couple, they would be America’s lovers.

9 Ennis / Jack at Brokeback Mountain

Ang Lee went from a highly stylized martial arts film with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon at the romantic cowboy movie brokeback mountain where two formal superhero villains Heath Ledger and Jake gyllenhaal, ended up having a special whiskey night, campfire, and lovemaking that just wouldn’t stop.

RELATED: The 10 best Heath Ledger movies according to Rotten Tomatoes

It was the sex scene heard around the world in 2005 that brought the once taboo subject to the fore and ended up changing the cinematic landscape and winning numerous awards. This movie and this specific scene was ahead of its time and was a game changer.

8 Allen / Lucien in Kill Your Darlings

A little-known 2013 film titled Kill your darling centered on some of the greatest writers of the 20th century. Daniel radcliffe played Allen Ginsberg and Dane DeHaan played Lucien Carr in this jazz-infused drama.

There is a surprising sequence where Radcliffe recalled his Harry potter days and used the Engorgio charm and had a provocative sex scene with his friend Lucien. It was an unexpected turn of events in the film itself and it was one of the first films since Hogwarts for Radcliffe.

7 Beverly / Howard in Howard the Duck

Howard the Duck and Lea Thompson in Bed

In 1986, one of the writers of Star wars and Indian Jones and the Temple of Death teamed up with George Lucas and adapted the comic Howard the duck on the big screen. It has become a cult classic since then for many reasons.

One of them is the implicit sex scene between the human Beverly and a duck named Howard, who just met. Dark Overlords traveling through space to destroy Earth, and a young Tim Robbins co-piloting a small plane was more believable than this affectionate little scene between two different species.

6 Maude Lebowski / The Dude in The Big Lebowski

In the Coen Bros. brilliantly written and directed films The great Lebowski, an unlikely couple end up talking about a fictional Metallica tour and family history after an invisible erotic streak.

RELATED: 10 things you didn’t know about the Big Lebowski

The Dude is the complete opposite of Maude Lebowski, a rich and elitist artist, who is passionate about this sympathetic dolt for less than 24 hours. The surprising part comes after Maude tells the guy that she only did the deed with him to have a child that she could raise on her own. It was at least a cause for an overthrown white Russian.

5 Gary / Lisa in Team America: World Police

A light musical with puppets and puppets is not the description of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s feature film Team America: Global Police. the South Park duo set out to make a violent and over the top action-comedy blockbuster with strings attached that featured brutal death scenes, terrorism, musical numbers and a sex scene between two non-anatomically corrected puppets to end all the sex scenes.

No one saw it coming (all pun intended), as the two main characters settle in for a night of loving relationships that quickly turn into various acts of hardcore fetish. There is nothing like it.

4 Maverick / Charlie in Top Gun

Kelly McGillis and Tom Cruise in Top Gun

In 1986, filmmakers Tony Scott, Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckheimer and Tom cruise decided to make an action drama set high in the sky with Top Gun. The movie catapulted Cruise to superstar rank, but nobody knew it, this movie is actually about someone coming to terms with their own sexuality (Maverick is gay and can’t cope).

That’s why it’s so shocking that he’s having an erotic scene with Charlotte AKA Charlie instead of his main man Goose. Once Maverick realizes the mistake, he burns himself out, riding his motorbike with a tear in his eye. It was a complete surprise.

3 Alex DeLarge / Devotchkas in a Clockwork Orange

Stanley kubrick take from A clockwork orange in the most perfect way. His use of music, impeccable camera movements, and vision to tell this virtually inexpressible story on the big screen has been a major feat in filmmaking. The only consensual sex scene in the film is the most surprising because it occurs instantly and on a large scale to the gleeful tune of the William Tell opening.

Alex DeLarge walks through a local music store and uses a two-woman pickup line, which immediately jumps to the next scene and Overture as an accelerated orgy begins at her parents’ house in the middle of the afternoon.

2 Flamingos cookies / crackers

Flamingos movie

John Waters is no stranger to sex and perversion. In fact, he could be the godfather of evil deeds in the film. 1972 was the year that gave the world John Waters internationally with Pink flamingos it’s infamous for more than just an act of depravity.

There’s one sex scene in particular that stands out where the Cookie and Crackers characters have a go at sex, but a giggling chicken somehow gets between them and ends up being run over. There are no words other than if John wick was involved and a propensity for chickens, this would have been a different movie.

1 Dr Harford / Secret Evening in Eyes Wide Shut

Nothing should come as a surprise in a Stanley Kubrick film, but the iconic filmmaker’s last film climax came in 1999. Eyes Wide Shut with Tom Cruise and Nicole kidman it turned out to be the best Christmas movie ever made. Something peculiar happens throughout the film with the marriage, the vacations, and the trust issues.

It all culminates in a grand aristocratic sex orgy in which Tom Cruise walks and watches his way through a mansion of hedonism. There are loads of different sexual acts happening on screen as the camera slowly shifts with each encounter. There hasn’t been a movie like this since.

Airlines have warned of safety as planes leave storage https://warriorsforchristonline.org/airlines-have-warned-of-safety-as-planes-leave-storage/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:30:40 +0000 https://warriorsforchristonline.org/airlines-have-warned-of-safety-as-planes-leave-storage/

Airlines are being warned about safety as they reactivate planes stored for months.

The global air transport crisis has seen an unprecedented number of jets parked.

At one point, two-thirds of the world’s fleet was stranded on the ground.

When they return to the skies, regulators worry about everything from maintenance errors to rusty pilots.

The International Air Transport Association says this year has seen a sharp increase in the number of poor landings – some resulting in accidents.

In May, 97 people were killed after a Pakistan International Airlines plane crashed following an unstable approach to the airport.

Now some insurers want to know if carriers offer additional landing training for pilots who have been on long leave.

European regulators say this year has also seen an alarming increase in incidents involving poor speed or altitude readings.

In June, a Wizz Air pilot had to abandon take-off after noticing that the speed indicated zero.

A ground examination revealed insects nestled inside a key sensor.

This after the plane had been parked for 12 weeks.

Similar incidents have caused fatal accidents in the past.

Regulators say long out-of-service periods are also raising concerns, including contaminated fuel and depleted batteries in emergency systems.

Now the airlines have developed training programs for rusty travelers.

But an industry association says pilots need to be honest about their abilities and confidence when they return to duty.

Lives could depend on it.

OREO Vault seeks to save humanity’s most precious commodity from asteroid Doomsday, plan to line your face for eternity https://warriorsforchristonline.org/oreo-vault-seeks-to-save-humanitys-most-precious-commodity-from-asteroid-doomsday-plan-to-line-your-face-for-eternity/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:18:41 +0000 https://warriorsforchristonline.org/oreo-vault-seeks-to-save-humanitys-most-precious-commodity-from-asteroid-doomsday-plan-to-line-your-face-for-eternity/

Ten years ago the world learned about Svalbard Global Seed Vault. This secure seed bank is located on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen in the Svalbard archipelago. It was created to preserve the seeds with the aim of ensuring that certain plants remain even in the midst of some type of global epidemic. And no, we’re not talking about COVID. Think about global warming which destroys crops and kills trees. This is what the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is for. Like all of us, the people of Oreo saw the news and realized that while the seeds of the world are safe, what about its chocolate and cream cookies?

With the news that NASA reported an asteroid was heading towards Earth on November 2, the day before the presidential election, Oreo decided the time had come to tell the world about his own arctic vault.

It’s called the Global OREO Vault and it’s asteroid-proof and built in the permafrost of Svalbard, Norway, on the same archipelago as the aforementioned seed chest. At Oreo’s facilities, you’ll find Oreo cookies (wrapped in mylar to keep them cool in temperatures as cold as -80 degrees and as hot as 300 degrees), powdered milk, and his top secret recipe. iconic cookies. Safe from chemical attack, an asteroid, chocolate-loving alien invasion, or even global warming.

While this sounds like a joke, it is real. Oreo even disclosed the contact details for the safe. They’re 78 ° 08’58.1 “N, 16 ° 01’59.7” E, so you know where to go if there’s even an apocalyptic event that wipes out every packet of Oreo cookies around the world.

US election polls: Trump SEVEN points ahead in swing state of Iowa https://warriorsforchristonline.org/us-election-polls-trump-seven-points-ahead-in-swing-state-of-iowa/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:18:41 +0000 https://warriorsforchristonline.org/us-election-polls-trump-seven-points-ahead-in-swing-state-of-iowa/

Donald Trump has taken the lead in key Iowa state, poll suggests he has a slim chance of causing another huge upheaval.

Investigation for the Des Moines Register showed the president was seven points ahead of Joe Biden on election day.

The same late poll in 2016 was one of the few to show that Mr. Trump could win the White House. This gave him a seven-point lead in Iowa over Hillary Clinton, which became a 9.6-point victory.

The inquiry will worry Democrats who fear Mr Biden will suffer the same fate as Clinton, also the big favorite.

He’s up about seven points overall in the polls, and there’s no doubt that – like her four years ago – he will win considerably more votes than Mr. Trump. However, the outcome of the election will not be decided at the national level, but by a handful of states on the battlefield.

Over the past campaign weekend, the two candidates broke into the Swing States with a particular focus on Pennsylvania. It’s one of ten last won by Mr. Trump and he has to keep most of them if he is to stay in the White House.

Mr. Biden leads in nearly all of those states, but his edge is slim and declining.

Together, they represent 179 Electoral College votes and Mr Biden is due to collect 38 in addition to the 2016 Clinton loot.

If Mr. Trump can keep enough of the big states – like Texas with 38 votes, Florida with 29, Pennsylvania with 20, and Ohio with 18 – then Mr. Biden might find it difficult to compensate elsewhere.

Iowa is one of the few swing states where Mr. Trump has gone ahead, and the Register poll shows he is becoming important. He’s 48% versus 41% for Mr Biden – the same poll in September showed them tied for 47.

A RealClearPolitics (RCP) poll average gives Mr Trump a 0.7% lead in Iowa.

He has yet to achieve the same feat in enough other swing states and is still four points behind in Pennsylvania. Yesterday he tweeted: “Our numbers are VERY good everywhere. Sleepy Joe is already starting to withdraw from some states. The radical left is crumbling!

While polls have consistently shown Trump to be tied or behind in major swing states, the president said he didn't really need to make his last two stops of the night - in Georgia and then Florida.

While polls have consistently shown Trump to be tied or behind in major swing states, the president said he didn’t really need to make his last two stops of the night – in Georgia and then Florida.

The president’s path to victory involves retaining and strengthening his 2016 electoral base, but polls show he is hemorrhaging support among women and retirees. As a result, he relentlessly focused his efforts on highly targeted states in order to be able to garner the 270 Electoral College votes needed for victory.

Mr Trump must retain all the southern states he won in 2016, including Arizona, Florida and Georgia, where he is respectively 1%, 0.7% and 0.8% behind.

If the president also retains two or three of the five Mid West “rust belt” states he won from Democrats in 2016, then he has a path back to the White House. He’s behind three, including Michigan, which he last won by seven points.

Political strategist Mike Madrid, one of the founders of the Lincoln Project, a Republican group opposed to Mr. Trump, said: “If he has a dramatic outperformance … I could easily see them win North Carolina and Florida.” .

How universities promote entrepreneurship – TechCrunch https://warriorsforchristonline.org/how-universities-promote-entrepreneurship-techcrunch/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:18:40 +0000 https://warriorsforchristonline.org/how-universities-promote-entrepreneurship-techcrunch/

15 institutions have teamed up to create a centralized pool of licensed IPs

Earlier this year, 15 top US universities have joined forces to launch a one-stop-shop where businesses and startups can discover and license patents.

Working together, Brown, Caltech, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, University of Illinois, Michigan, Northwestern, Penn, Princeton, SUNY Binghamton, UC Berkeley, UCLA, University of Southern California and Yale formed The University Technology Licensing Program LLC (UTLP) to create a centralized pool of licensed IP addresses.

The UTLP comes as more higher education institutions step up their investments in the entrepreneurial pipeline to help more students launch startups after graduation. In some cases, schools act as accelerators, providing students with resources and helping them connect with VCs to find seed funding.

To get a better look at the new program and more information on the college-to-startup pipeline, we spoke to:


The UTLP initiative appears to be focused more on licensing intellectual property to existing companies, rather than accelerating college startups.

Orin Herskowitz: The UTLP effort is actually much more about licensing at the somewhat broken interface between universities and very large tech companies when it comes to intellectual property licensing. But I do know that USC and Columbia and many of our peers, especially over the past three to seven years, have pivoted in a massive way to help our faculty students realize their entrepreneurial dreams and launch startups around this exciting university technology.

The word “broken” jumped out at me. Historically, what has been the problem?

Orin Herskowitz: Universities have traditionally been a source of amazing inventions that save and improve lives for decades. There have been a ton of new drugs and medical devices, cybersecurity improvements, and search engines like Google that have rolled out of universities over the years that have been funded by the federal government and developed in laboratories, then licensed to a startup or industry. And that was great. At least for the last couple of decades, this interface has worked really well in some areas, but not so well in others. So in life sciences, in energy, in advanced materials, in these industries, most of the time these innovations that end up having a huge impact on society are based on one, two or three eureka moments. fundamentals. There’s like a patent or two behind a huge new cancer drug, for example.

However, in the tech space the dynamics are very different because most of the time these inventions are incredibly important and they launch a whole new generation of products and services, but the problem is that a new device, like a iPhone, or software, can build on dozens or even hundreds of innovations from many different universities, instead of just one or two.

Obviously, not all breakthroughs require launching a startup. I guess the vast majority of these things to come would make more sense to work with existing businesses.

Jennifer Dyer: We have all focused on innovation within the university and we really help our students and professors who want to start businesses to start these businesses. If you look at the space, helping educate our students that starting a business in a high tech space may mean they have to go out and acquire 100 different licenses, then maybe it didn’t. no Sens. We’re going to do non-exclusive licenses, and that’s not preventing anyone from moving forward with this technology. This is probably the first pool of non-standard essential high-tech patents, which makes it somewhat unique. Because if you look back, most pools have been around standard essential patents.

The question of exclusivity is an interesting one. Aren’t you granting exclusive rights for the right price?

Spanish version of WhiteHouse.gov darkens in Trump’s America https://warriorsforchristonline.org/spanish-version-of-whitehouse-gov-darkens-in-trumps-america/ Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:18:40 +0000 https://warriorsforchristonline.org/spanish-version-of-whitehouse-gov-darkens-in-trumps-america/

The Spanish-speaking version of the White House website was taken down on the first day of Donald Trump’s presidency.

The page, previously maintained by the administrations of Barack Obama and George W. Bush, darkened late Friday afternoon, as Reverse reports. now the link WhiteHouse.gov/espanol leads to a 404 page with a message that says “Sorry, the page you are looking for could not be found.”

Other changes to the official website of the new presidential administration include the addition of strong statements of support for gun rights and law enforcement and the removal of prior information described by the Obama administration on the Climate Change Policy and Affordable Care Act, as described by The Washington Post.

In the first hours after Trump’s inauguration on Friday, the links from 114 pages on the official White House site had dropped to just 38, according to Reverse. Meanwhile, the entire Spanish-speaking site itself was no longer nowhere to be found.

The Spanish-speaking White House Twitter page @LaCasaBlanca also did not post any tweets on Monday.

The elimination of Spanish translations from the White House online appears to reflect feelings shared by Trump during his presidential campaign, when he criticized any use of Spanish within U.S. borders.

During a Republican presidential debate in September, he defended his criticism of Jeb Bush for speaking Spanish during the election campaign.

“We have a country where, to assimilate, you have to speak English,” Trump said. “And I think where [Bush] was, and the way it came out, didn’t feel right to me. We have to have assimilation to have a country. “

“It is a country where we speak English, not Spanish, ”he added emphatically.

Such a statement was probably rather well received by Trump supporters of the so-called alternative right-wing movement, who advocated white nationalist policies. like ethnic cleansing.

Yet on Monday, the president’s press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that getting rid of the White House page for Spanish speakers was unintentional. On the contrary, he said, the new administration is still figuring things out.

“We started from day one. There was a lot of work to do, and we had done a lot of work on the website to make sure we were ready to get as much information as quickly as possible, ”he said, according to The Washington Post. “We continue to develop the website both in the problem areas and in this area. But we have IT people working overtime to keep updating all of this. Believe me, it’s going to take a little longer, but we’re working piece by piece to make it happen.

The evolution of the new White House website has not gone unnoticed in the Twitterverse.
