Changes to the Food Guide include:

  • a first-time recommendation to include a small amount of unsaturated fat in regular diets;
  • physical activity to complement healthy eating;
  • advice for some people to take vitamin supplements;
  • an advisory to limit foods with excess salt, sugar, fat and calories, which is considered an unprecedented caution regarding junk food.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Day 2: Uruguay, Iran win three points each with late goals; Portugal-Spain share the spoils

Saturday, June 16, 2018

Yesterday, day two of the 2018 FIFA football World Cup, Uruguay defeated Egypt 1–0 with an 89th minute winner scored by José Giménez; Iran defeated Morocco 1–0 due to Aziz Bouhaddouz’s own goal moments before the final whistle; and in the final match of the night, Portugal vs Spain, both the sides scored three goals, with Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a late equaliser and completing his hat-trick.

Uruguay dominated in ball possession. Uruguayan forward Luis Suárez had multiple attempts on the goal, but was denied by goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy. Both sides built up attacks in the first half, but could not convert any into a goal. Just at the start of the second half, Suárez came close to scoring the opener of the day but was stopped. Egypt made the first substitution of the game in the 50th minute, when Tarek Hamed was substituted off for Sam Morsy due to injury. Uruguay created multiple chances in the second half as well, and Edinson Cavani’s came very close to putting the South Americans in the lead in the 88th minute, but the ball hit the goal post. A minute later, in the 89th minute, José Giménez scored a header from Carlos Sánchez’s free kick. Egypt’s Sam Morsy and Ahmed Hegazi were shown yellow cards in the injury time.

Uruguay had four shots on target in the entire match. Egyptian shot-stopper Mohamed El Shenawy was elected the Budweiser Man of the Match.

Egypt’s Mohamed Salah, who scored 44 goals for Liverpool FC in the 2017–18 season, was an unused substitute. After the match, Egypt’s coach Hector Cuper said, “Salah is an important player for us but you need to have a good team, and we have a good team. Salah will have an important role for us in the future matches […] We wanted to avoid risks [to Salah] in this match, but I think he will be fine for the next game.” Three weeks ago, in the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid, Salah was substituted off due to a shoulder injury.

This was Uruguay’s first victory in their opening game of the World Cup tournament since they defeated Israel in 1970. Egypt are yet to win their first game in a World Cup tournament.

In the first Group B match of this tournament, Morocco dominated in ball possession. The African side won a free kick in the first minute of the game, however, Amine Harit could not convert it to a goal. Morocco started the game with the attacking style, with two more attempts in the first ten minutes. Masoud Shojaei was the first player to be booked in the match. As the first half progressed, Iran made a few attempts, and goalkeepers at both the ends were put to the test and prevented the ball finding the back of the net. The first half ended with 0–0 on the scoreline.

The first substitution of the match came in the 68th minute when Iran’s Masoud Shojaei was called off for Mehdi Taremi. Morocco made their first change in the 76th minute when Noureddine Amrabat was replaced by his brother Sofyan Amrabat due to injury. With multiple players getting injured in the second half, and multiple fouls committed, Iran’s Karim Ansarifard was booked in the injury time. In the ending minutes of the game, Sofyan Amrabat’s foul led to Iran winning a free kick. Aziz Bouhaddouz scored an own goal heading the ball in the back of his own net, and putting Iranians 1–0 up in the injury time.

After the defeat, Morocco’s coach Herve Renard said, “I’m feeling disappointed and if we had come out with a draw I would’ve also been disappointed considering the way the game played out. A defeat, when you had quite a few opportunities, it is the worst thing that could have happened in injury time.”

Morocco has never won their opening match of a FIFA World Cup tournament.

In the last game of the night, 2016 UEFA Euro champions Portugal took on Spain. Spain dominated in ball possession. In the third minute of the game, Portugal won a penalty kick, as Spanish defender Nacho brought down Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo in the penalty area. Ronaldo scored from the spot kick in the right corner. Spanish midfielder Sergio Busquets was shown a yellow card in the 17th minute for a bad foul. Diego Costa scored an equaliser in the 24th minute, netting the ball in the left corner while surrounded by five Portuguese players. Two minutes later, Isco’s chance to put Spain in the lead was stopped. Portugal’s Bruno Fernandes was booked in the 28th minute. The Spaniards had multiple attempts for the goal as the match progressed. In the 44th minute, Ronaldo scored his second goal, giving Portugal a one-goal lead right before the halftime. Gonçalo Guedes provided the assist for Ronaldo, and Spanish shot-stopper David de Gea could not control Ronaldo’s shot. The first half ended with 2–1 on the scoreboard.

Ten minutes in the second half, Costa scored the second equaliser of the night from Busquets’s assist and three minutes later, in the 58th minute, Nacho scored a right-footed shot from outside the box, putting Spain into the lead. Portugal won a free kick in the 86th minute, and Ronaldo converted the free kick into a goal, scoring his 51st hat-trick of his career and equalising for Portugal. The final score was 3–3, with both the sides sharing one point each.

After the match, Spain’s newly appointed coach Fernando Hierro said, “We feel very proud of the players, we have come back and equalised twice so we feel a great commitment and pride.”

Wikinews held an exclusive interview with American author and filmmaker Peter John Ross. The head of Sonnyboo Productions, an independent film studio based in Columbus, Ohio, he has made numerous short films as well as co-directed a feature, the World War II B-movie Horrors of War.

He has also written a book on filmmaking, Tales from the Front Line of Indie Filmmaking. He says that it “combines helpful articles for beginning filmmakers with narrative tales based on my experiences raising money for features and the crazy personalities that invade the world of microbudget filmmaking.”

When asked why he makes movies, Ross replied, “There is no greater thrill than sitting in a room full of strangers watching the stories unfold with flickering pictures and sound. I live for the moments when I can sit there and watch the movies with people I don’t know and really feel how they react to what I wrote or directed or edited.”

Rower Tuijn halfway across Pacific in record attempt

Rower Tuijn halfway across Pacific in record attempt
Published by

Monday, July 9, 2007

Dutch adventurer Ralph Tuijn has reached the halfway point of his attempt to be the first person to row across the Pacific Ocean unaided.

The 16,000 kilometre journey from the coast of Peru to the seaside city of Brisbane, Australia, the widest section of the Pacific, has never been crossed absolutely unaided by a rower, and Tuijn says just nine people have rowed it even with assistance.

Tuijn reached the central point of his crossing, an insignificant point of water in the ocean, 111 days after setting off from Peru in March. He has been making good progress, and has since cut his estimated time of arrival in Brisbane by a month.

The Dutchman, who now expects to reach his destination on October 20, has kept in touch with those tracking his movements through daily internet postings from his laptop computer, including his wife Winnie. His boat, the Zeeman Challenger, is a seven-metre custom plywood vessel.

Tuijn has overcome a variety of obstacles to reach the halfway point. He is suffering from the constant attention of sharks, who often bump his boat and disrupt his attempts at sleep. One particular shark, dubbed ‘Gomulka’ by Tuijn, has been trailing the adventurer’s boat for extended periods.

He has also accidentally burnt himself when he spilled hot water on his foot whilst trying to make coffee, apparently also from a shark ‘bump’. He is also forced to manually pump water for cooking and drinking after his automatic water pump broke down not long into his journey.

“Physically everything feels great and I can’t help feeling that I could do this for 500 days, but mentally it’s still hard to be on your own for such a long time”

His vessel has no motors or sails, but relies on his physical rowing power to move. The boat does have a solar power system to provide energy for his laptop, a telephone and a global positioning system.

Tujin, who is raising money for a children’s home in Mumbai, India, is rowing at an average speed of 58 kilometres each day. His diet consists of freeze-dried foods and fish, which are keeping him physically well-conditioned despite tiring mentally.

Tuijn is a serial adventurer and experienced rower. He has rowed across the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, as well as cycled across Russia and the icy terrain of Greenland.
