Study shows stability of MetaboLys BY-PASS LYSINE

first_imgThe William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute has released two studies that compared six rumen-protected lysine (RPL) products for both the release of lysine over a 24-hour period in high and low moisture total mixed rations (TMR) and the efficacy of rumen protection of RPL products after mechanical mixing in TMRs.In the first study, after 24-hour exposure in TMRs with either 40 percent dry matter (DM) or 52 percent DM, only 3.8 percent of the lysine in Metabolys BY-PASS LYSINE was lost.advertisementadvertisement This data suggest that the H.J. Baker product can be used in once-daily feeding programs with minimal lysine product loss occurring.In the second study, Metabolys BY-PASS LYSINE was placed in Dacron bags, mixed for 6 minutes in a TMR and placed in the rumen for 0, 6, 12 and 24 hours. A 13.5 percent lysine loss was reported.The Miner Institute study supports a University of Georgia study of six rumen/duodenal cannulated cows. The results of the University of Georgia cannulated cow study for MetaboLys BY-PASS LYSINE showed 88.89 percent rumen bypass of lysine and 79.37 percent digestibility of lysine in the small intestine.“We are honored to have the Miner Institute include MetaboLys BY-PASS LYSINE in their study and we are very pleased our product performed so well,” said H.J. Baker’s Danny Wright.”This third party research validates the performance of MetaboLys BY-PASS LYSINE.” PDadvertisement—From H.J. Baker news releaselast_img read more

FAA Menolak Aturan Pembatasan Jarak Kursi di Kabin Pesawat,Terminal Baru Bandara Seletar Mulai Beroperasi Akhir 2018

first_imgJarak antar kursi 29 inci (Wing Boarding Area) Mempersempit kursi dalam pesawat mungkin memang membuat untung maskapai, tapi tidak bagi penumpang. Bahkan dengan tubuh yang lebih besar dari standar, penumpang akan sulit masuk kedalam kursinya. Sayangnya, permasalahan penyempitan jarak kursi tersebut tidak digubris oleh Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) yang menolak terkait ukuran kursi tersebut.Baca juga: Tolak Atur Regulasi Kursi Pesawat, FAA: Kenyamanan Penumpang Bukan Masalah Keamanan FAA sebenarnya sempat diperintahkan oleh hakim di Pengadilan Banding Amerika Serikat untuk Distrik Sirkuit Columbia tahun 2017 lalu untuk menangani kasus kursi maskapai penerbangan yang jaraknya menyusut secara drastis. KabarPenumpang.com merangkum dari laman marketwatch.com (9/7/2018), FAA pada 6 Juli 2018 kemarin menanggapi perintah itu dengan memutuskan bahwa penyusutan kursi pada kenyataannya tidak mempengaruhi keamanan konsumen. Sehingga membuat FAA tidak menetapkan batas pada ruang kaki atau lebar tempat duduk penumpang. “FAA tidak memiliki bukti yang menunjukkan bahwa dimensi tempat duduk saat ini menghambat kecepatan evakuasi penumpang, atau bahwa peningkatan ukuran penumpang menciptakan masalah evakuasi. Selama evakuasi, penumpang berdiri hanya dalam beberapa detik, yang waktu kurang dari yang dibutuhkan untuk keluar darurat untuk mulai berfungsi dan untuk garis yang mulai terbentuk di lorong untuk membersihkan,” ujar juru bicara FAA.FlyersRights.org sempat mengajukan petisi pada 2017 lalu terkait ruang kaki atau jarak kursi dengan rata-rata pada penerbangan domestik 31 inci. Maskapai penerbangan ekonomi seperti Frontier dan Spirit memiliki jarak terendahyakni 28 inci dan lebar kursi pun mengalami penurunan.Mei lalu, American Airlines AAL, -8,08 persen direncanakan akan mendatangkan Boeing BA, -1,89 persen Max jetliners dengan dua inci lebih sedikit ruang kaki di pelatih 29 inci versus 31 inci, tetapi kembali mengevaluasi rencana itu pada bulan Juni untuk mempertahankan setidaknya 30 inci dari ruang untuk kaki. Selain tidak nyaman, kursi menyusut mengancam kemampuan untuk mengevakuasi pesawat dalam waktu 90 detik.“Satu-satunya cara yang mungkin adalah untuk masyarakat yang bepergian adalah dengan protes publik yang luar biasa. FAA mengatakan bahwa mereka tidak melihat bukti bahwa ukuran penumpang, usia atau kapasitas fisik mempengaruhi waktu evakuasi karena menolak melakukan pengujian yang benar-benar mencerminkan populasi penumpang saat ini dan kursi yang menyusut dan lebar lorong dengan cara yang realistis,” kata Paul Hudson, presiden FlyersRights.org.Tempat duduk yang sempit juga meningkatkan ketegangan di pesawat dan dapat mengatur panggung untuk pengalaman di atas kapal yang tidak menyenangkan, menurut Christopher Elliott, seorang advokat perjalanan konsumen dan pendiri Advokasi Konsumen Elliott. Dia menghubungkan meningkatnya jumlah perkelahian dan pertengkaran yang dipublikasikan secara besar-besaran pada penerbangan ke ketegangan yang meningkat karena ketidaknyamanan di udara.Baca juga: Terkait Masalah Seat Pitch, FAA Dipaksa Perbaharui Peraturan Penerbangan“Orang-orang memiliki lebih sedikit ruang di kursi, tempat duduk kurang nyaman dari sebelumnya, dan mereka bereaksi dengan cara yang sangat mudah diprediksi mereka panik. Ukuran kursi minimum bisa menghentikan konfrontasi di udara ini,” katanya.Mungkin masih ada kemungkinan ukuran tempat duduk akan diatasi pada tahun mendatang, namun. Inspektur Jenderal Departemen Transportasi AS Calvin Scovel mengumumkan peninjauan standar evakuasi FAA pada bulan Juni, menanggapi permintaan dari House Transportation Committee. Dia mencatat bahwa pesawat modern memiliki lebih banyak kursi, penumpang yang lebih besar dan memuat lebih banyak tas jinjing.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedTerkait Masalah Seat Pitch, FAA Dipaksa Perbaharui Peraturan Penerbangan02/10/2017In “Domestik”Tolak Atur Regulasi Kursi Pesawat, FAA: Kenyamanan Penumpang Bukan Masalah Keamanan13/07/2018In “Featured”Kisruh di Kabin, Penumpang Kursi Belakang Kesal Pukul Kursi Depan Karena Bersandar26/02/2020In “Featured”last_img read more

Kurt Baptiste appeal closes today

first_imgThe bank account opened at the beginning of this month to assist PNG LNG Kumul Kurt Baptiste will close today. Apart from the K10,000 donation by Sir Peter Ipatas, there have been a few small donations deposited in the account. PNGRFL chief executive officer Reatau Rau said any amount – big or small – is greatly appreciated. Baptiste suffered a season ending knee injury in the second half of the PNG LNG Kumuls loss to Toa Samoa in the Oceania Cup Pacific Test opener in Sydney in June. Rau said: “The injury has ruled Kurt (Baptiste) out of playing rugby league for his NRL club North Queensland Cowboys and the PNG LNG Kumuls for the next 12 months. “The players are insured and all claims will mainly be for costs related to the injury. “Our concern is his welfare. He risked his NRL contract when he chose to play for PNG and the injury happened while he had the Kumul jersey on. As a nation, we are obliged to show our appreciation and support so he can get through this difficult period.” Rau said there were many who supported the idea through social media before the account was opened. “Those who pledged and supported Kurt through the social media can please deposit their monies into this account,” Rau said. He said the account details are: NAME: PNGRFL Inc. Trust Account for Kurt Baptiste, BSP ACCOUNT No: 7017301099, BRANCH: Port Moresby, BSB NO. 088 294, SWIFT CODE: BOSPPGPM and every Kina or two deposited will be shown on the statement. Rau said the account will be closed today and every single toea sent to Kurt Baptiste with a ‘Note of Appreciation’ from a grateful nation. “The SP Hunters are travelling to play the Blackhawks this weekend in Townsville therefore it is an opportune time for Coach Michael Marum and the team to visit and present the monies to Kurt,” Rau said. “Please let’s help our Kumul Kurt Baptiste on his road to recovery.”last_img read more

Half-time: Wigan 1 Fulham 2

first_imgLasse Vigen Christensen and Bryan Ruiz struck in quick succession as Fulham fought from a goal down to lead at the break.Former Brentford midfielder Adam Forshaw put Wigan ahead from the penalty spot on nine minutes after Konstantinos Stafylidis conceded the spot-kick with a reckless lunge on Callum McManaman.It was Fulham’s inability to clear the danger that led to the goal with Marc-Antoine Fortune flashing an audacious attempt across the face of goal moments before.AdChoices广告Fulham’s Hugo Rodallega then got on the end of a George Williams cut-back pass to deflect a shot onto the roof of the net before keeper Marcus Bettinelli denied the Latics a second, turning a fierce Fortune shot around the post.Midfielder Christensen did well to hold off Leon Barnett to meet a long ball from Scott Parker and drill the equaliser past Scott Carson on the half-hour.The goal sparked a flurry of chances for the Whites, with Rodallega testing Carson with a low shot before Ruiz met a Ross McCormack cross to chest the ball home from point-blank range.Fulham (4-4-2): Bettinelli; Zverotic, Bodurov, Burn, Stafylidis; Parker, Christensen, G Williams, Ruiz; McCormack, Rodallega.Subs: Kirlay, Hutchinson, Roberts, Woodrow, Dembele, Hyndman, David.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
