Entwicklung im Sprint "einfach nicht plausibel": Doping-Experte zweifelt an Superstar Bolt

Muss Sprintstar Usain Bolt sauber sein, nur weil er noch nie des Dopings überführt wurde? Nein, findet der Mediziner Perikles Simon. Skeptisch machen ihn der von Bolt ausgelöste Quantensprung bei den 100-m-Zeiten und das völlig ineffiziente Kontrollsystem. Zudem vertuscht der Leichtathletik-Weltverband eine brisante Dopingstudie.

Rated R: director David Twohy on making 'Riddick' without compromise

by Bryan Bishop
Riddick_productionstill1_1020_large

The last time audiences saw Vin Diesel's sci-fi antihero Richard B. Riddick in theaters was back in 2004, but that's going to change in September with the upcoming Riddick. Here at San Diego Comic-Con we sat down with writer and director David Twohy after he debuted a new red-band trailer with a particularly striking visual payoff to the legions in Hall H. Riddick represents a return to the R-rated form of the original Pitch Black, and Twohy discussed the making of the film, his plans for future installments, his personal feelings on 3D, and the creative freedom that working outside the traditional studio system allows.

Fortunately, that red-band trailer is available for online audiences to enjoy as well — so if you'd like to...

‘Children of Men,’ ‘Hot Fuzz,’ and '500 Days of Summer' directors say special effects can't match real stunts

by Adi Robertson

The top-tier panels at Comic-Con are usually dedicated to upcoming blockbusters or fan favorites — yesterday, thousands of people packed into the giant Hall H to see Harrison Ford or the cast of Dexter. Between these panels, though, we also got a chance to see three slightly more low-profile directors talk about their craft: Hot Fuzz and The World's End's Edgar Wright, Children of Men director Alfonso Cuarón, and Marc Webb, responsible for both the latest Spider-Man reboot and 500 Days of Summer. In some ways, Webb, Wright, and Cuarón couldn't be more different. But their current projects all have the basic elements of a Comic-Con movie — alien invasions, astronauts stranded in space, superheroes. They also share a common fear:...

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

by Iowa Girl Eats

Oh hi, back with another salad recipe for ya’!

#cantstopwontstop

Especially now that I know Ben likes Caesar Salads. For FIVE YEARS I have avoided making Caesar Salads (well make = buying the Dole salad kits) because he hates creamy foods. Mayo, yogurt, pudding, creamy dips – you get it. That said, imagine my surprise when a few weeks ago he dropped the bomb that Caesar Salads are, apparently, one of his favorite things in life. Huh? The same Caesar Salad that usually comes drowning in a thick and creamy dressing? Loves ‘em. Riddle me that?

Anyway, it’s actually good news because now I can just buy the kit then add grilled chicken and chopped tomatoes on top and call it dinner. Hallelujah!

I don’t know why I’m telling you all this besides the fact that I have a must-try salad recipe for you: BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad. Creamy dressing optional. You’ll see. : )

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad combines crunchy romaine lettuce with BBQ chicken, grilled corn, black beans, fresh tomatoes and crunchy red onions, all chopped to the same size then tossed in light ranch and bbq sauce – or your favorite dressing. I tell you what, lately I can’t get enough chopped salads. I love how fresh, quick, and easy they are. The epitome of healthy, summer eating.

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

Oh! There’s crushed tortilla chips in there too. Can’t forget about those babies! Every BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad must have a handful of crushed tortilla chips, in my opinion. Salty and crunchy, they add a little bit of decadence to this fresh entree salad. Must try.

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

Start by brushing 2 chicken breasts that have been pounded thin with extra virgin olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Grill for 3-4 minutes a side over medium-high heat, brushing the grilled side with BBQ sauce after flipping once. Put the lid down then let the BBQ sauce sizzle and caramelize as the second side cooks. Mmm. : )

Pop 2 ears sweet corn on the grill next door then rotate occasionally until all sides are evenly charred.

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

Pull the chicken and corn off the grill, let cool slightly, then chop the chicken and slice the kernels off the corn and set aside.

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

Next get the rest of the chopped salad ingredients ready, starting with the salad base - romaine lettuce. For 4 people you’ll want 2-10oz bags of chopped romaine lettuce (I used Dole.)

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

Place the lettuce into a huge bowl (might want to do this in a few batches,) then use a pizza cutter to chop it up into small, bite-sized pieces. I learned this trick from a chopped salad restaurant in Minneapolis a million years ago and it’s basically my favorite. Cuts down on all those face-whipping pieces of lettuce in a salad. The worst!

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

To the chopped lettuce add 2 chopped vine-ripened tomatoes, 1/2 small chopped red onion, 

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

1 cup black beans, and the kernels from the grilled corn.

Finally, add a big handful of crushed tortilla chips (however many you want) and 1/2 cup each shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese. These two ingredients are my secret salad weapons. The chips add an awesome, unexpected crunch, and the mixture of cheeses is just right. Love me some creamy Monterey Jack!

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

Add the chopped chicken then, using a pair of tongs, toss the salad ingredients together.

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad | iowagirleats.com

I like to dress my salad with a mixture of light ranch and BBQ sauce, but use whatever your heart desires. Dress then toss again to combine, plate, and serve!

Say Goodbye To The Iberian Lynx

by Dina Spector

Image1

The Iberian lynx, the world's most endangered cat, will probably go extinct in 50 years as a result of climate change, a new study in the journal Nature Climate Change reports. 

The Iberian lynx looks like a bobcat. It has grayish fur covered in dark spots, long legs, a short black-tipped tail, and black-tufted ears. There are only an estimated 250 Iberian lynx left in the wild, which survive in two isolated breeding populations in Southern Spain. 

Iberian lynxDuring the twentieth century, populations sank to a catastrophic low because of dramatic reductions in the big cat's main food source — the European rabbit. The rabbit makes up more than 80% of the Iberian lynx diet, according to the study, but a mix of disease and over-hunting has made the rabbit scarce.  

Climate change will put the final nail in the coffin, says lead author Miguel Araújo and colleagues.

Researchers contend that current recovery plans — captive breeding programs that facilitate the reintroduction of the Iberian lynx into the wild — are not effective because they don't account for the impact of climate change, which will make Southern Spain and Portugal unsuitable habitats for the lynx by mid-century. The outcome is not likely to change even if strong efforts are made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within this century, the report finds. 

"Survival of the species in the long term may require higher latitude and higher altitude regions on the Iberian Peninsula," according to a statement from the University of Adelaide's Environment Institute. 

The Iberian lynx can be saved, but it will require "a carefully planned reintroduction programme, accounting for the effects of climate change, prey abundance and habitat connectivity," the authors write.

US Military Dropped Bombs On Great Barrier Reef Because Drop Zone 'Wasn't Clear'

by Agence France Presse

Marine harrier takeoff

The United States military said Monday it had jettisoned four unarmed bombs on Australia's Great Barrier Reef during a training exercise only because civilian boats had strayed into the drop zone.

The US 7th Fleet had earlier said only that the planned target range was "not clear of hazards" at the time, forcing the two Harrier jets to dump their ordnance within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park off Queensland state.

But Commander William Marks revealed Monday that the crews had made the decision, which has been criticised by environmentalists, because civilian vessels were detected inside the drop range.

"The approved area where they could do some of this live training with these 500-pound bombs, it was not safe to drop the bombs," he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

"There were civilian boats right below them."

The joint Australia-US training which began on July 15 involves 28,000 troops and Marks was unable to say how civilian vessels had strayed into the Shoalwater Bay military training area.

"I don't have any more information about what they were doing and why they were there," Marks said.

"But it's part of our procedures just to do that safety check and if we do see that, then for safety reasons we do not drop any ordnance."

Officials on Sunday said the fighter jets had conducted an "emergency jettison" of two BDU 45s, which are inert ordnance, and two GBU 12s, which were dropped in an unarmed state on the iconic reef's marine park on July 16.

The two AV-8B Harrier planes had intended to drop the bombs on a range on a nearby island but were unsuccessful despite several attempts. Running low on fuel, and unable to land carrying such a large load, they decided to jettison the bombs.

"Their priority was to get to a place which would create the least impact, which we believe we did -- dropping them in between 50 and 60 metres of water in a place where it is not a hazard to shipping and not a hazard to navigation," Marks said.

The drop was coordinated with Australian authorities, he said, adding that the environment was a priority for the US military.

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, which will work with the defence department to recover the bombs, said they were considered low risk and about 30 kilometres from the nearest reef.

But the Queensland Greens Sunday described the incident as outrageous.

"Is this how we look after our World Heritage area now? Letting a foreign power drop bombs on it?" asked Senator Larissa Waters.
