Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 May 2016 - 10:28 AM) jets offered fitz 3 years 24 million dollar deal. 12 million for 2016 and 6 million each for 2017 and 2018. fitz is unhappy with the 2017 and 2018 number
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:45 PM) Street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:47 PM) I really don't like Devin Smith he cost us 2 games last season with his hands of stone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) he's a rookie
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i'm more concerned we really don't have a slot WR. all of our guys are outside guys
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i wonder if amaro is gonna be a big slit guy and blocker for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) slot
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 09:22 PM) Sources told NY daily news.Fitzpatrick is about to sign 1 year deal
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 10:06 PM) We didn't have a slot WR last year also. I do Amaro steps up I really do like him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 June 2016 - 09:46 AM) Ok so the jets won't take the deal. My question is why?? 1 year 12 million when they are already offering him 12 million in his first year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) 2 reasons, 1st off for salary cap relief this year. we have no cap room this year but plenty next year. a multi year deal and backload the contract and 2, why pay a guy 12 mil for 1 year with no guarentee and go thorugh this again
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) fitz said he'd take a 1 year deal but jets don't want that
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:25 PM) they should offer him a 3 years for 30 mil. 12 this year (half in the signing bonus for cap relief) 10 mil next year and 8 mil the 3rd year. 1st 2 years guarenteed (22 mil)
RetireChrebet Icon : (03 June 2016 - 03:37 AM) You know your fucked when the biggest offseason story is can we convince a journeyman QB whom singlehandedly threw us out of the playoffs last year to sign a deal worth way more than his actual value!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 09:59 AM) Ok jets brothers I need fantasy football help. Who should I keep in my keepers league. We have to decide by July
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:00 AM) Should I keep Cam Gurley or Bell?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Cam had a monster year last year and in our league it's 6 points per PassTd and cam is getting his best WR back.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Gurley was a monster last year as a rookie
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:03 AM) Bell missed most of the year with a injury but it's also a PPR league. In only 6 games last year he =100 points
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:04 AM) Cam also had 45 total TDs last year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) I'd keep bell
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) there are maybe like 5 #1 fantasy RBs at best and you need to start at least 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) QBs are easier to find. I had cam in 2 leagues and drafted him way late. RBs are impossible to find late
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) FIRE FITZPATRICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) That Damn dirty street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (05 June 2016 - 09:43 PM) In other news the NBA finals is like A NFL team Playing a college football team.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (06 June 2016 - 11:23 AM) line is in. jets are favorites for 5 games, pick for 2, and underdog for 9
MikeGangGree... Icon : (08 June 2016 - 04:56 PM) We play better as a underdog
santana Icon : (12 June 2016 - 03:54 PM) JETS JETS JETS
santana Icon : (13 June 2016 - 09:28 AM) Update on the #Jets situation with Ryan Fitzpatrick: Nothing. … Just nothing. Doesn't seem like things will change heading into minicamp.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 June 2016 - 10:39 AM) yeah every day i check for an update and every day, nothing

What are Trans Fats and are they bad for me?

Do you ever wonder if all fats are bad for you? What are trans fats and how are they different from other types? I found this article by Mark Ransome that describes the differences.

Regulation Of Trans Fats by Author: Mark Ransome

Should we regulate the amount of trans fats contained in the
food we eat? A Canadian government task force on trans fats is
recommending that all vegetable oils and spreadable margarines
have the trans fat content limited to 2% of the total fat
content and all other foods be limited to a maximum of 5% of
total fat content. These new regulations would decrease the
average trans fat intake by at least 55%.

What are trans fats? Fatty acids in foods are made up of
polyunsaturated (like safflower oil, sunflower oil and corn
oil), monounsaturated (like olive oil, peanuts, and avocados),
saturated (like coconut oil, palm oil, butter and cheese) and
trans fats (like margarine and shortening). Saturated and trans
fats are linked to coronary heart disease. The majority of trans
fats are produced by the food industry when it uses a process
called hydrogenation to turn liquid vegetable oils into
semi-solid products. This process hardens and stabilizes the
oils, enhances the flavor and extends the shelf life of food
products. These trans fats also break down less easily which
makes them more suitable for frying. The majority of trans fats
are found in foods made with shortening, margarine or
partially-hydrogenated oils and in baked goods like crackers,
cookies and donuts and in fried foods like french fries and
fried chicken. The trans fat content of some of these foods can
be as high as 45% of the total fat in the food product. Trans
fats also occur naturally at fairly low levels in
ruminant-based foods like dairy products and beef and lamb.

Are trans fats worse than saturated fats? There is a lot of
evidence linking both trans fats and saturated fats to coronary
heart disease. Trans fats appear much more dangerous because
metabolic studies have shown that they increase the blood
levels of our bad cholesterol (LDL) and decrease the levels of
our good cholesterol (HDL). Saturated fats appear less damaging
because they elevate the total cholesterol levels - both bad
(LDL) and good (HDL). The Harvard School of Public Health found
that removing trans fats from the industrial food supply could
prevent tens of thousands of heart attacks and cardiac deaths
each year in the US. The findings are published in the April
13, 2006 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Government organizations around the world have started to act
to resolve the problem. In 2002, the US National Academies of
Science recommended that trans fat consumption be kept as low
as possible. In 2003 the World Health Organization recommended
that trans fat intake be limited to less than 1% of overall
energy intake. Also in 2003, Denmark set an upper limit on
industrially produced trans fats in foods, limiting them to
just 2% of the total fats in foods. They excluded meat and
dairy products. In 2005 Canada required mandatory labeling of
trans fats in packaged foods. The US followed in 2006 with a
mandatory labeling for any foods containing 0.5 grams or more
of trans fats per serving.

Is mandatory labeling sufficient? Shouldn't we let informed
consumers self-regulate the amount of trans fats they consume?
Once the consumer understands how harmful trans fats are and
that as little as 5 grams per day can lead to heart disease,
then mandatory labeling will force the food industry to reduce
the amounts contained in food products much faster than a bunch
of government regulations, However what about restaurants and
the fast food industry? Here is where the Canadian government
task force recommendations are probably a good thing. Consumers
do not know how much trans fats there are in french fries, deep
fried chicken and baked goods. Therefore we should adopt the
recommendation from the June 27th, 2006 final report of the
Trans Fat Task Force that states - “For all vegetable oils and
soft, spreadable (tub-type) margarines sold to consumers or for
use as an ingredient in the preparation of foods on site by
retailers or food service establishments, the total trans fat
content be limited by regulation to 2% of total fat content.”
This will allow us to eat restaurant and fast food industry
foods with the knowledge that the trans fat content is limited
to 2% or less.
