According to Bell, people who are fat on the inside are essentially on the threshold of being obese. They eat too many fatty, sugary foods – and exercise too little to work it off – but they are not eating enough to actually be fat. Scientists believe we naturally accumulate fat around the belly first, but at some point, the body may start storing it elsewhere. Still, most experts believe that being of normal weight is an indicator of good health, and that BMI is a reliable measurement. “BMI won’t give you the exact indication of where fat is, but it’s a useful clinical tool,” said Dr. Toni Steer, a nutritionist at Britain’s Medical Research Council.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Some doctors now think that the internal fat surrounding vital organs like the heart, liver or pancreas – invisible to the naked eye – could be as dangerous as the more obvious external fat that bulges underneath the skin. “Being thin doesn’t automatically mean you’re not fat,” said Dr. Jimmy Bell, a professor of molecular imaging at Imperial College, London. Since 1994, Bell and his team have scanned nearly 800 people with MRI machines to create “fat maps” showing where people store fat. According to the data, people who maintain their weight through diet rather than exercise are likely to have major deposits of internal fat, even if they are otherwise slim. “The whole concept of being fat needs to be redefined,” said Bell, whose research is funded by Britain’s Medical Research Council. Without a clear warning signal – like a rounder middle – doctors worry that thin people may be lulled into falsely assuming that because they’re not overweight, they’re healthy. “Just because someone is lean doesn’t make them immune to diabetes or other risk factors for heart disease,” said Dr. Louis Teichholz, chief of cardiology at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, who was not involved in Bell’s research. Even people with normal Body Mass Index scores – a standard obesity measure that divides your weight by the square of your height – can have surprising levels of fat deposits inside. Of the women scanned by Bell and his colleagues, as many as 45 percent of those with normal BMI scores (20 to 25) actually had excessive levels of internal fat. Among men, the percentage was nearly 60 percent. Relating the news to what Bell calls “TOFIs” – people who are “thin outside, fat inside” – is rarely uneventful. “The thinner people are, the bigger the surprise,” he said, adding the researchers even found TOFIs among people who are professional models.
Chelsea’s hopes of landing long-term target Juan Cuadrado have been dealt a major blow as the Colombian looks set to sign a new and improved deal with Fiorentina.The Blues have been chasing the 26-year-old since last summer, with Jose Mourinho admitting his admiration for the former Udinese man. However, the Stamford Bridge club failed in their approach to sign the winger after the World Cup in Brazil.But now, after weeks of lengthy contract talks with his current club in Florence, Fiorentina are close to brokering a new deal worth £4m-a-season over five years with Cuadrado.According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Cuadrado has demanded pay parity with star striker Mario Gomez and his contract will also include a buy-out clause of around £35m. 1 Juan Cuadrado

Two bond measures that would improve Walnut Valley Unified schools will be on the ballot Tuesday. Fifty-five percent of voters need to approve the $64.6 million Measure S and the $15.2 million Measure Y for the bonds to pass. The money from Measure S would go to upgrading five schools – Maple Hill Elementary, Chaparral Middle School, Diamond Bar High School, Cyrus J. Morris Elementary and Ron Hockwalt Academies – and make safety and technology improvements to the 10 other schools. Some of the upgrades include replacing 25-year-old trailer classrooms with permanent buildings, making classrooms and campuses accessible to handicapped students and repairing roofing. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Measure Y funding would go toward upgrading athletic and performing-arts facilities at the schools, including expanding gyms and improving fields, tracks and pools. If the bonds are approved, property tax would increase by $30 annually per $100,000 at a home’s assessed value. According to a Realtor’s estimate, the average assessed value of a home is $600,000, a district official said. In addition the district said they could qualify to receive $25 million in state matching funds for Measure S. “Measures S and Y are critical for the well-being of our students – for modernization of one-third of our schools, for 21st century technology tools for teachers and students, for safe, secure high-quality learning environments. It is all about the kids,” said Carolyn Elfelt, school board president, in an e-mail. Walnut Valley voters have supported two previous $50 million bond measures – in 1991 and 2000 – for school improvements. Board member Larry Redinger said that increasing construction costs are why the proposed bonds are higher than previous years. “We have been a great district, and we have to maintain good facilities to attract teachers,” Redinger said. Redinger is optimistic that the bonds will be approved because of the support from the community. In the last year, several school districts have passed bond measures earmarked for facilities improvements. In June 2006, Rowland, Covina-Valley and Monrovia unified passed school bond measures. Rowland Unified had the largest bond – $118 million – that passed with more than 70 percent of the vote. email@example.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2108 www.insidesocal.com/schools160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Collison, at least, has the advantage of growing up in Southern California, as does wing Michael Roll. Until a few years ago, neither starting wing Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, nor backup center Alfred Aboya, ever heard of UCLA, let alone USC, or some crazy, fierce rivalry that apexes during football season. “It’s our rival, so it’s going to be exciting,” said Mbah a Moute, who like Aboya, grew up in Cameroon. “I know a lot from the football game, how people got ready. So it’s going to be a good game. I can’t wait to play in that game. We have to come out and be ready to play defense because they have good guards and we have to match their intensity.” Aboya, too, said his only experience with the rivalry came in the fall with football. He said he felt the excitement around campus, but turned off USC’s 66-19 win by halftime because “it was painful.” “During the football season, I had a chance to experience that rivalry,” Aboya said. “It’s a big deal. I can’t wait to see what it will be like.” They know a rivalry exists because they are told one exists, but they have no reference point. “As freshmen, we don’t really know about what the expectation is about winning this game,” UCLA backup point guard Darren Collison said. “We don’t know the history around this game because this is our first year.” As members of UCLA’s basketball team filtered into Pauley Pavilion for Tuesday’s afternoon practice, several stopped to marvel at the few tents set up next to the student entrance. It wasn’t quite Duke’s tent city, but it told something was different about tonight’s game a meeting with crosstown rival USC compared to other Pac-10 games. But getting most of the active members of the 18th-ranked Bruins to discuss in depth why it was different was a task, mostly because many never experienced it. Three-fifths of the starting lineup are freshmen, all five of UCLA’s freshmen should play in the game, including three from other countries. Meanwhile, starting center Ryan Wright is from Ontario, Canada, where footballs are punted on third downs and rouges are worth as much as a free throw. UCLA’s resident healthy veteran is senior center Ryan Hollins, who moved deeply into the backdrop this season because of injury, and the emergence of several freshmen. But he suffered through four straight losses to USC before sweeping the series last season, so he can at least add perspective. “It’s going to be a lot more personal,” Hollins said of the USC matchup. “I don’t know if (the foreign players) really understand it because, being a SoCal guy and growing up here, it’s a game everybody watches and looks forward to. I’m sure it’s sinking in, but I don’t know if it’s really ingrained in them.” Even UCLA’s starting sophomore guards and leading scorers, Arron Afflalo and Jordan Farmar, may not possess the keen history of the rivalry. Each has close friends on the Trojans. Afflalo played with USC sophomore Gabe Pruitt in high school. Farmar, who played at Woodland Hills Taft, and USC’s Nick Young, who played at Cleveland of Reseda, have a long-standing friendship. “In my opinion, that may make it a little less intense for us,” Afflalo said. “The game, itself, is going to be intense. Looking at the big picture and the overall Pac-10 race, this game is very important for a lot of people. But as far as our personal relationships, I think it makes it a little less intense. I’ve known Gabe and Nick for a while now, so you go out there and have a little more fun.” There is such goodwill, Farmar said, that Pruitt and Young came to UCLA’s campus plenty of times last spring to play pickup games. “Being close friends with guys on their team gives it a little different aspect,” Farmar said. “But we bleed blue and gold and they bleed cardinal and gold. It’s big for both of us, just for school spirit, school pride. It’s big for the camaraderie, and the feeling around campus. No matter what the sport is, you always want to beat ‘SC.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

MEMORIAL MATCH: The game four years ago marking the 35th anniversary of the deathsA RIGHT-WING Unionist has called for a GAA football match in Co Donegal which commemorates the deaths of two IRA volunteers to be banned. Mid-Ulster MLA Ian McCrea called on the GAA to stop the game in memory of “terrorists” from going ahead in Ballybofey this Friday.The ‘Giants will Clash’ Harvey and McGlynn memorial cup match will see selected members from clubs around County Tyrone face a Donegal Select side from clubs around the county here. It is being held in memory of IRA men Seamus Harvey and Gerard McGlynn who died when their bomb exploded prematurely on August 10, 1973.In a statement Mr McCrea fumed: “It has come to my attention yet again that a terrorist commemorative gaelic match between a Tyrone Select and Donegal Select team is to take place in a ground named after a republican terrorist. “Whilst I acknowledge that the GAA have been making the right sounds on issues such as this however, this event flies in the face of all that has been said when time after time events like this GAA match in memory of IRA members Seamus Harvey and Gerard McGlynn Cup take place at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey an associated GAA ground.“Over the past few years a number of events have taken place across Mid-Ulster on GAA grounds and the excuse was given that they didn’t know about it, well they know about this one and it’s time to see action.”Mr McCrea added: “Republican commemorations at GAA facilities along with the naming of grounds and competitions does not do anything to make the organisation acceptable to the Unionist community and I again make a genuine appeal to the GAA to introduce and enact a ruling that no Republican Terrorist commemorations should be held on any of their grounds and show once and for all that they are a sporting organisation with no support for terrorists.”There was no immediate official response from organisers of the event which has taken place for several years, but one source dismissed the statement as “a rant.” On 10 August 1973, Gerard McGlynn and Seamus Harvey were transporting a bomb and were about 200 yards from the customs post at Kilclean, on the Donegal border, when the device accidentally exploded, killing both men.Gerard McGlynn (18) was a native of Castlederg and lived on the Castlefin Road just outside the town.Seamus Harvey (22) was a married man with a young family. He had been living in Donegal on the run from his hometown of Castlederg for about 18 months prior to his death. A few weeks before his death Harvey and three other young men appeared in court in Dublin charged with IRA membership and possession of weapons.

Donegal’ Ryan family from Letterkenny have got off to a hugely impressive start to RTE’s Ireland’s Fittest Family.Dad Danny Ryan and children cut through the time trial like a knife through butter in their first televised appearance this evening.The family were easy winners of their time trial section amongst two other competing families coming home in a time of 2 minutes and 14 seconds, well ahead of their nearest rival family in 2 minutes and 36 seconds. Their performance earned huge praise from the judges Anna Geary and Alan Quinlan who all wanted to mentor the Ryans.Former camogie star Geary said the Ryan family was the one family she was looking forward to seeing having read their profile.But it certainly won’t be easy in future programmes after the likes of the Broadhurst family completed the time trial in an even faster time.Now Donegal needs to get behind the Ryans!
