Authorities received another call around 9 a.m. about a 3-year-old that was left at a Publix at Palm Beach Lakes Blvd in West Palm Beach.

The University of Guelph has become a Canadian hub for gut health research in horses, and PhD student Shannon Stanley is eager to add to this research with her upcoming work. Shannon, who started her PhD in the Animal Biosciences department at Guelph earlier this fall, plans to look at leaky gut in horses. Leaky gut is a topic of interest to researchers and the medical community in other species, but is only just starting to be investigated in horses. Shannon hopes to address this gap with her project looking at links between nutrition and leaky gut.What is leaky gut in horses?Healthy intestines act as a barrier to keep the ‘bad stuff’, like pathogens and toxins, from entering a horse’s body. When intestines become ‘leaky’, this barrier is no longer effective, and the pathogens and toxins can slip through. Shannon explains “The leaking of these toxins and pathogens, and the body’s reactions to them, is thought to cause decreased performance and the development of diseases in horses.” The causes of leaky gut in horses include changes to the bugs (microbiota) in the horse’s gut through diet or other causes, diseases, and obstructions and infections in the intestinal tract.What will the leaky gut research project involve?Shannon plans to focus her research on potential relationships between nutrition and leaky gut in horses. Her research project will investigate the effects that nutritional supplements have on Gastro Intestinal (GI) transit time in healthy horses. After looking at the results in healthy horses, the next steps may include looking at GI transit time in horses with leaky gut syndrome. Shannon states, “This research will give scientists and veterinarians insight into nutritional approaches that may help prevent and/or treat leaky gut in horses.”Stay tuned with Equine Guelph to hear more about Shannon’s project, and learn more about equine gut health by taking Equine Guelph’s upcoming short course on Gut Health and Colic Prevention from November 12 – 30th, 2018.

The Crooked Vines, formerly the AmBrassadors, released their self-titled debut album with celebratory, funk-fueled jams at Prytania Bar this past Saturday, October 10th. Rhythm section Woody Hill (drums), Stephen Bohnstengel (bass), Nick Carlisi (guitar), Steve Schwartz (keys), and horns Lori LaPatka (alto sax) and James Keane (trombone) vamped on a soul/calypso beat before lead singer Mikayla Braun reeled in the first verse. Her sensitive yet compelling voice belted “Can’t you feel it’s time to make a move,” spinning the crowded venue into celebration. Keeping in the spirit of female vocal led soul repertoire, the band broke into a rendition of Estelle’s “American Boy” with Braun at the lead. Everyone had no choice but to sing along. For the rest of night, their heavy-hitting energy sustained and tastefully dipped into sultry/spacey pleasure when the crowd needed it. Nick Carlisi improvised gypsy-jazz meets Pink Floyd guitar solos while Lori LaPatka transported Cannonball Adderley to the funk-fest. Steve Schwartz could barely sit still in the excitement of his distorted organ that gives The Crooked Vines their gritty appeal. The amped show spokesman James Keane took James Brown’s lead and yelled to the band to lead into the next section as Woody Hill and Stephen Bohnstengel held down the groove, switching into poly-rhythmic fury on a whim. The band’s foundation spurred from Lori LaPatka, who quickly enlisted Steve Schwartz to form a high-quality party cover band. Over time, the current lineup formed and gained popularity at BMC, Verret’s Lounge, and Pryrtania Bar, where they would open for Rebirth Brass Band and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes. Schwartz’s compositions became party staples and with Braun conducting the energy, The Crooked Vines couldn’t ignore the traction that lead them to create this first album.Check out the full gallery of images, courtesy of Katie Sikora Photography, below: Load remaining images

The schedule of 60 matches, which will run from March to May, was initially decided. However, with the rise of Kovid in the country, the conduct of the IPL continued indefinitely.
The Nigerian Professional Football League is back in full flow. Barely 10 days since its resumption on Jan 13, we are hit with matchday 4.11 states of the federation will witness breathtaking football as the abridged league continues. The previous matchday produced 18 goals from 8 matches, Heartland with the only away win in Lafia while the ancient city of Kano also witnessed good football as pillars drew with Akwa United.On the 23rd of January, 2019, teams will file out again with full expectations of conquering their opponents. League champions and current CAF champions league participants, Lobi stars will have a first taste of the action when they visit former champions Enyimba in Aba. The boys from Makurdi lost to Asec Mimosas by a lone goal in Abidjan and return to face an Enyimba side that has scored 4 goals in two games. Coach Solomon Ogbeide will be looking to put their continental loss behind them and focus on their title defense. It won’t be an easy task as Enyimba, who have been known to turn their home ground to a fortress will want to grab maximum points to show who the real champions are. Enyimba come off the back of a narrow loss to Kwara United in Ilorin, a match in which they led twice. Meanwhile, Nigeria’s second representatives at CAF competition this year, Enugu Rangers, will be in Lagos to play their first league fixture against MFM FC. The flying antelopes beat FC Bantu of Lesotho during the weekend to qualify for the group stages of the CAF confederations cup and will be hoping to build on that when they file out at the Agege Township stadium. MFM FC occupy 4th spot in group A, with 3points from 2 matches. Their weekend tie against Lobi stars was postponed due to the later’s involvement in the continent, and as such, they will be looking to build on the 2-0 win over Kwara United last time at the soccer temple. Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu will be banking on his relatively new side to grab maximum points at home. The city of Benin will witness top tier league action for the first time in over 10 years as New boys, Bendel Insurance plays hosts to group leaders Kwara United. The Benin arsenal who just returned from Sagamu with a point will be in full confidence ahead of this tie. Coach Monday Odigie who is saddled with the responsibility of ensuring the team regain its lost glory will be expecting star man Charles Omokaro to increase his tally this season. Meanwhile, Kwara United who is topping group A after acquiring 4 points from 3 matches will want to build on that comeback win over Enyimba in that 5-goal thriller. Coach Abubarka will be banking on striker Segun Alebiosu to deliver in this tie.Other matches for group A are: Katsina United Vs Wikki tourists Sunshine Stars Vs Rivers United Niger Tornadoes Vs Remo stars Group B also presents mouth watering fixtures. Yobe desert stars will play their first match of the league season when they travel to Anambra to face Ifeanyi ubah FC in Nnewi. Coach Uche Okagbue of FCIU has so far proven that his relatively young and unknown side can reap dividends in the league this season, but perhaps that may be too early to say. The anambra warriors have not conceded a goal this season, thanks to a resolute defense led by Goal keeper Charles Anozie. This has seen them gather 5points from 3 games and are ranked 3rd in the group B standings. Table toppers Heartland of Owerri will welcome Go Round FC to the Okigwe Township stadium for this matchday’s tie. Heartland lead the standings with 6pts from 3 games, claiming the only away win of matchday 3 when they beat Nasarawa united by a lone goal in Lafia. They will be looking to build on this to ensure they have a fine. On the other hand, Go round FC, led by coach Willy Udube has never lost to an eastern opponent this season. They won away at Abia warriors and drew against Ifeanyi ubah FC last time out at home. They will not want to dent this record, so expect fireworks in this encounter.Down south in Uyo, Akwa United will play hosts to Plateau United. It will be some kind of reunion as coach Abdu Maikaba of plateau united will be facing his former employers after leading them to a 2nd placed finish last season and winning the Aiteo cup two seasons ago. The men from JOS will be buoyed by that 2 nil win over El-kanemi warriors during their weekend tie in Ilorin and Maikaba will be expecting his charges to keep the momentum high. Former Akwa man Gabriel Wassa is expected to return to the side, having completely served his suspension for that red card in matchday two. Meanwhile, coach of the home team, Rafael Everton has said that plateau united will be playing against, and entirely different side with different tactics, so there’s no such thing as plateau united knowing what to expect. Akwa bounced back from that shock home defeat in matchday one by going to Kano to draw against pillars and they will want to give their fans something to cheer about on Wednesday. Other matches include; Gombe United Vs Kano Pillars Abia Warriors Vs Kada CityThursday 24 January 2019 El-kanemi warriors Vs Nasarawa UnitedRelated
