Health Benefits of Beer | Devour The Blog: Cooking Channel's Recipe and Food Blog

Health Benefits of Beer | Devour The Blog: Cooking Channel's Recipe and Food Blog | Health & Ageing for Wide Bay | Scoop.it

Now for the good news:

It’s a hearty drink: Any type of alcohol in moderate amounts can help lower your risk of heart disease by helping to lower blood pressure and increasing “good” HDL cholesterol and lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol.

It has nutrients: Beer is made from grains, such as barley, so it makes sense that it contains some of the same nutrients you’d find in grains, including B vitamins, protein and even fiber. A 12-ounce beer has 1 to 2 grams of protein and up to 1 gram of fiber (which isn’t all that much, but still!). Darker beer tends to have more fiber than lighter beer.

Gina Rinehart's QCI earns option to buy 25pc of Bundaberg project

Gina Rinehart's QCI earns option to buy 25pc of Bundaberg project | Health & Ageing for Wide Bay | Scoop.it
GINA Rinehart has earned the right to acquire a 25 per cent stake in a highly-promising Queensland coal project after her joint venture partner, International Coal, confirmed that the Perth mining magnate had spent more than $1.5 million on exploring tenements near Bundaberg...
Kirrina's insight:

International Coal told the ASX today that its joint venture with Mrs Rinehart’s Queensland Coal Investments had intersected additional coal at the Bundaberg project, which demonstrated "continuity of the seams” announced in a maiden resource estimate in March.“Further work is required to correlate these results with previous drilling in order to better understand the extent and quality characteristics of the resource,” it said.The announcement also revealed that QCI, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mrs Rinehart's Hancock Prospecting, has spent more than $1.5m and therefore met the earn-in requirements to enable it to exercise the options to buy 25 per cent of the project.   QCI has an agreement under which it can acquire up to 51 per cent of the project.Mrs Rinehart's joint venture with International Coal is one of several she has secured in Queensland over the past two years, and comes on top of the multibillion-dollar iron ore empire she controls in Western Australia.Brisbane-based International Coal told the ASX in February that drilling results near Bundaberg had returned a crucible swelling index of 9, which is considered to be extremely high-quality coking coal.The in-ground value of the coal is likely to be measured in billions of dollars, although this does not guarantee the joint venture partners will be able to fund construction of a mine. -

Erika Harrison's curator insight, November 3, 2013 1:34 AM

"With respect to understanding human nature, I think this finding is pretty significant.  The things that cause us to feel pain are things that are evolutionary recognized as threats to our survival and the existence of social pain is a sign that evolution has treated social connection like a necessity, not a luxury.  It also alters our motivational landscape.  We tend to assume that people’s behavior is narrowly self-interested, focused on getting more material benefits for themselves and avoiding physical threats and the exertion of effort.  But because of how social pain and pleasure are wired into our operating system, these are motivational ends in and of themselves.  We don’t focus on being connected solely in order to extract money and other resources from people – being connected needs no ulterior motive".
