The event will include nutrition information, recipes and preparation and tasting of healthy meal alternatives.Steinbuchel, 25, is passionate about health. A buff advertising executive by day, he remade his own health, and has helped friends and relatives do the same, including friends who were underweight, overweight, or coping with Type 2 Diabetes. â€œIâ€™m not selling anything,â€ he says. â€œThis is information that everyone deserves – how to be healthy without medications.â€Steinbuchel emigrated to the US from the Ukraine at age 10. â€œIâ€™ve been interested in the science of food since I was 16,â€ he recounts. â€œAt 5â€™ 10â€ I weighed 135 lbs, which was very skinny. I started going to the gym and fell in love with the process. In the first year, I gained 10 good pounds.â€œAfter working out for a while, I realized that exercising and staying active is only half the job; other half is what we eat, what time day, and the quality of food.â€He read about nutrition, and started experimenting â€“ on himself. â€œI was the lab rat. I tried a high carbohydrate diet, but it didnâ€™t work for me. I switched to a high protein diet. That brought even more good body transformation. And the more results I saw in the gym, the more people asked, how did you do it?â€Steinbuchel did it through eating a diet that is relatively high in protein from organic meats and fish; has moderate amounts of good fats like olive and flax seed oil; moderate amounts of carbohydrates, mostly from vegetables; and relatively little grains or fruit. â€œIf you eat clean 80 to 90 percent of the time, you can achieve incredible results.â€ “In three or four months, people can see incredible results, if they really stick to it.â€So many people ask him how he stays so fit that he launched â€˜Behind the Plateâ€™ on Facebook last year. Itâ€™s at https://www.facebook.com/BehindThePlates, â€œItâ€™s a community page where people can share healthy recipes, and help each other out. Weâ€™re all about making healthy food taste great.â€The April 27 presentation is free and open to the public, but reservations are required.

CVPS engineers and transmission supervisors performed helicopter flyovers Monday to assess the damage from the air. See photos below.CVPS support staff continued to work with state emergency management officials and the Vermont Agency of Transportation to develop travel and road work strategies to access customers. An emergency bypass where Route 4 was washed out in Mendon will be completed today. Construction contractors worked through the night on the road. In cooperation with the Agency of Transportation, CVPS hired Belden Construction to build the emergency bypass, which will be available only to utility and emergency vehicles and will be monitored by law enforcement. A more permanent repair will require substantial planning and construction by the state. Devastation is extensive across the CVPS system. A handful of examples among the dozens of major issues include: The near destruction of the Rochester Substation. Royalton Operations Supervisor Ben Bemis had to ride an off-road motorcycle to the site, which was inaccessible to trucks. ‘The fence is gone, the transformer has been undermined, and debris is scattered all over the place,’ Bemis said. ‘It’s looking pretty sad.’Numerous sections of Route 107 in Bethel virtually disappeared. The White River flooding took out numerous poles and hundreds of feet of line.The loss of a key bridge on Route 73 between Goshen and Rochester. One end of the bridge supports washed out, dropping the span into the water below. ‘The Route 73 bridge looks like a boat ramp going down into the river,’ Bemis said.The loss of not only dozens of utility poles, but the scouring of all of the soil that held the poles up. Springfield Operations Supervisor Ed Whittemore said in many cases, even if the road existed, there is no soil left to install new poles.Projects that will entail the complete reconstruction of entire sections of the utility system. In Jamaica, for example, crews were able to feed the center of the village through a backfeed, but the lines heading in both directions from the village center were washed away. In Wardsboro, Brattleboro Operations Supervisor Dave Miller said they found one washout that included five utility poles, but workers couldn’t go any further because the road was gone. ‘God only knows what washouts there are beyond that one,’ Miller said.Up-to-date outage numbers (by town) can be found at: http://www.cvps.com/CustomerService/outages/(link is external) and http://vtoutages.com/(link is external)CVPS offered several safety tips for coping with the outages: STAY AWAY FROM DOWNED POWER LINES. Don’t touch or even go near downed wires! These wires can be energized and can cause serious injuries or death. If the line is blocking the road or in contact with a vehicle with people inside, call your local police or fire emergency number first. Then call CVPS. Instruct others to keep at least 50 feet away, and keep pets and livestock away as well.Assume all objects touching the power line are also energized. Never attempt to remove trees or limbs from any utility lines! Notify CVPS of the situation.If using a generator, read and follow the owner’s manual before starting the generator. Never operate a generator inside any structure or near a structure. Use a transfer switch to ensure electricity is not accidentally fed onto a line where line crews must work.Keep freezers and refrigerators closed as much as possible to prevent food spoilage.If power goes out, turn off all electrical appliances except one light so you’ll know when service returns. Then, turn equipment back on slowly.Up-to-date outage numbers (by town) can be found at: http://www.cvps.com/CustomerService/outages/(link is external) and http://vtoutages.com/(link is external) PHOTOS: Top, a destroyed house in Pittsfiled; middle and bottom, two shots of Route 4 east of Rutland. The largest fleet of utility trucks, workers and resources in Central Vermont Public Service history is making steady, solid progress on storm restoration today, thanks to improving access and the sheer numbers of workers. But CVPS cautioned that complete restoration remains dependent on road access, and could take weeks.As of 5 pm, more than 57,000 customer outages have been restored, with 15,900 remaining.‘We have an unprecedented mass of workers, with more than 140 line trucks in the field, and nearly 600 contractors assisting,’ said Scott Massie, manager of Central Scheduling at CVPS. ‘That’s about three dozen more line trucks and 100 more people than the previous records set during the Nor’icane in 2007.‘We are attacking our problems methodically but quickly, and we’re making short work of the problems that we can access,’ Massie said. ‘Where communities or neighborhoods are isolated, we’re working with the state and individual towns to try to get access, but it’s difficult work and will take time.’Spokesman Steve Costello, a 15-year employee, said he was amazed by the progress made in the last 24 hours, as line crews, digger crews and support staff pieced together the electrical system, often in spots where roads are gone.‘Crews have restored far more service than I would have thought possible at this stage of the recovery,’ Costello said. ‘They are committed to doing everything possible to bring back power, but we have a lot of work to do before any semblance of normalcy will return to the worst-affected areas. Access is by far our biggest challenge.’Joe Kraus, senior vice president for engineering, operations and customer service, said workers were taking extraordinary steps and collaborating with state and local officials to gain access to isolated communities and clusters of customers.‘In many cases we are simply building new lines because access issues and the loss of basic infrastructure means we can’t rebuild our lines where they once were,’ Kraus said. ‘In other cases, we’ve cut our way into isolated regions, built a temporary emergency bypass of Route 4 in Mendon, which will help us get to numerous towns along the Green Mountains, and we continue to look for new access routes in collaboration with local and state officials.’In addition to the Route 4 bypass, CVPS gained access Tuesday to a temporary passage on Route 103, another key east-west route, which the state opened. The company is also communicating with officials in Rochester and Bethel, which are working from opposite ends of Bethel Mountain Road in an attempt to open up a one-lane access to Rochester, which is currently isolated. ‘Those are just a few examples of the collaboration that is going on between towns, the state and the company,’ Costello said. ‘There has been extraordinary effort.’Kraus reminded customers to stay away from any downed power lines, and cautioned that despite the legion of workers, the restoration process could be lengthy. ‘Folks are working 18- and 20-hour shifts, but this is unlike anything we’ve ever seen, or want to see again,’ Kraus said. While the worst flooding is over, CVPS urged Vermonters to use extra caution around waterways, many of which are still flowing at very high levels. ‘A lot of the smaller rivers, creeks and brooks may have dropped back considerably, but the water is still moving much faster than normal,’ said Mike Scarzello, CVPS’s generation asset manager.Costello reminded customers that if their home or business was flooded, they need to take special precautions. ‘If your electric service panel was affected by water, it has to be examined by a qualified electrician before we can restore service,’ Costello said.
SUSQUEHANNA, PA (WBNG) — Residents and business owners in Susquehanna rallied together Sunday after what they called a tough summer due to the coronavirus. Today was the first ever Main Street Fall Festival. The Susquehanna Community Development Agency planned the event after all of the traditional festivals in the borough were cancelled due to the pandemic. Dubas says Coronavirus or not, they plan to make the festival a yearly staple. “I feel like there’s nothing going on right now we don’t have anything, usually there are festivals all summer long and there hasn’t been anything, so this is the first time our town has done anything in about six months,” she said. Melissa Dubas, Organizer and owner of Harper Hill Crafts, says the event was meant to not only get the community together and out of the house, but to showcase businesses up and down Main Street. Two of them are new businesses which opened during the pandemic.
A statement on the Espanyol website read: “Thievy Bifouma to join West Bromwich Albion until the end of the season after an agreement was reached with the English club. “WBA will pay the player until the end of the season and pay 500,000 euros,with more than 100,000 euros in other variables.” Speaking prior to confirmation of the deal, Mel said: “I hope for at least one more player. There are a lot of names but one striker is possible here today. “But getting Anichebe playing good matches, Saido Berahino is a good player in the front three position and Vydra too. “Thievy is a young player who scores goals, and he is a possibility.” West Brom have signed striker Thievy Bifouma on loan until the end of the season, the Spanish club have announced. Press Association The France Under-21 international joins from Primera Division side Espanyol, who have netted a total fee of almost £500,000. Bifouma represents manager Pepe Mel’s first signing since arriving at the club, and helps provide attacking cover following the departure of Shane Long to Hull and with Nicolas Anelka potentially facing a ban over his “quenelle” goal celebration.
This time it was Liverpool doing Chelsea favours – not something their fans would usually celebrate but on this occasion their club’s needs come first, and with the championship beyond their means, the race for Champions League qualification takes priority. Jordan Henderson’s brilliant opener was matched by an equally good team goal from Edin Dzeko but Philippe Coutinho’s 75th-minute winner eclipsed them all. Anfield is something of a graveyard for City, who have now not won here in 12 league matches, yet it was supposed to be their hosts who were mourning a Europa League exit to Besiktas on penalties on Thursday. City reverted to the team which thrashed Newcastle 5-0 last weekend after losing to Barcelona in midweek but it was the home side, registering four changes – most significantly returning playmaker Philippe Coutinho – from the defeat to Besiktas, who got off to a flier. Coutinho, who twice set up Adam Lallana to first shoot weakly at Joe Hart and then brilliantly finish from a narrow angle only to be judged marginally offside, was the instigator. Pressing hard he robbed Vincent Kompany and rode a challenge from the City captain before laying off to Raheem Sterling, who gave Kompany a torrid time in the first half, and he teed up Henderson to curl a beauty over Hart and into the top corner in the 11th minute. Immediately the intensity went up a notch, with Sergio Aguero breaking free of Skrtel and beating Simon Mignolet but not the far post with a left-footed shot. It was end-to-end stuff, with the creative Coutinho and equally mercurial David Silva running the show for their respective sides, although an honourable mention should go to the pint-sized Joe Allen, who was a giant in midfield against players of huge size and even bigger reputations. Chelsea’s involvement in the Capital One Cup final had given Manuel Pellegrini’s side a chance to reduce the gap at the top to two points but, as was the case last season, they were cut down at Anfield. Eleven months ago defeat here did not prove their undoing in the title race as Chelsea did them a favour by winning at Anfield. Press Association The former’s ball with the outside of his right foot sent Sterling racing down the left wing, but although he easily jinked past Eliaquim Mangala, City’s £32million summer signing, his cross rolled through the six-yard area with no-one to knock it in. Silva was increasingly finding space in front of Liverpool’s back four, the area where he is most dangerous, and from there he crafted City’s 25th-minute equaliser. The Spain international picked out Aguero, whose sublime ball to Dzeko was deservedly rewarded with a goal as the Bosnian slotted past Mignolet for his 50th Premier League goal. From then on the game became even more open and entertaining, something of a rarity for a noon kick-off on a Sunday. Both defences looked to be the weakest links, with Mangala equally out of touch as Kompany while Dejan Lovren’s presence in the back three, after his penalty shoot-out miss in Istanbul cost his side Europa League progress, seemed to cause as much indecision in Liverpool’s ranks as it did consternation in the stands. The ripple of applause he received for holding off or, depending on your persuasion, pushing over Pablo Zabaleta in the box just before half-time seemed more in relief than appreciation. Attacks continued, with Aguero heading over 20 seconds into the second half and Sterling bundling wide a Lallana cross, but the quality level dropped somewhat. In an instant it was raised again, in the 75th minute, when Coutinho cut in from the left, dropped his shoulder and unleashed an arcing shot which dipped over the outstretched fingertips of Hart. Once again going behind sparked City to go to another gear and, having sent on striker Wilfried Bony for Fernandinho, Aguero’s angled shot whistled just past the far post after Lovren had lunged in. A frenzied final 10 minutes saw Coutinho have another shot deflected over, Bony escape with a yellow card after appearing to lead with an elbow on Lallana, substitute Daniel Sturridge roll a shot wide with only Hart to beat and Silva flash a shot just off target with the seconds ticking down. Liverpool put a huge dent in Manchester City’s title hopes with a 2-1 victory which dramatically enhanced their own hopes of a top-four finish.
