the children developing asthma or wheezing up to six years of age’The Journal of Paediatrics’ reported In their studyresearchers analysed 1105 infants in New Zealand over six years before coming to the conclusion that it has a protective effect on the development of asthma in kids In factthe team asked questions about breastfeeding and gathered information on wheezing and asthma in the children at twothreefourfive and six years The protective effect against the development of asthma is even stronger in those infants and children who are atopic that is those who have allergies and are therefore more vulnerablethe findings revealed Exclusive breastfeeding for three months within this atopic sub-group reduced current asthma at six years by 59 per centbringing their risk down to that of non-atopic children “These are very robust and convincing results which support a global public health message to breastfeed to prevent asthma” lead author Dr Karen Silvers said in a varsity

celebrations around the world —————————————————– As a kid I would envy my sister Chris her name for the rather straightforward easy-to-place identity it gave her I struggled to explain to many that it is possible to be Christian and Malayali at the same time I would explain that in South India some of us have been Christians since the 1st century That’s about 2000 years ago Which means there were Christians in India way before any of the Empires in Europe had even heard of Christianity Before the Gupta Empire was established before the Mughals Portuguese or British ever came to India So no we

thinking of Or Americans at Thanksgiving The flavours of Christmas for me are firmly rooted in the Syrian Catholic parts of Kerala my parents comes from fragrant with the notes of pepper cardamom cloves cinnamon roast coconut shallots and curry leaves It would start each year with my parent’s yearly ritual of soaking fruits and nuts post Diwali My father would go all the way to Khadi Baoli in Delhi to get the fruits and would hand mix all the peels and fruits with copious amounts of rum By the time the fruit was ripe for baking into my mom’s popular X’mas cake a couple of weeks before Christmas we would be bursting with anticipation For three days the house would be immersed in preparations – my father cracking dozens and dozens of eggs into a milk can my mom caramelising sugar and my sister and I sniffing around huge bharanis of dry fruits soaked in rum On the D-day my parents would take all the prepped ingredients to the bakery mix the batter as per their own recipe and then bake dozens and dozens of cakes in the large bakery ovens They would come back with large fragrant buckets filled with freshly baked spicy warm-from-the-oven Christmas cakes which would be gifted to friends and family By the time Christmas Eve came around we would be sick of the cake and would be looking forward to breaking the 24-day abstinence with an overload of meat and fish On D-Day the house would be abuzz with excitement as my mom and aunt cooked deftly churning out fish curry in coconut milk freshwater fish fried to a crisp appams with its crunchy lacy edges and beautiful fluffy middles beef (buffalo in Delhi) steaks marinated in mustard and pepper mutton curried in roast coconut pork curry stir-fried with sliced coconut chicken curry and our absolute favourite – the meat cutlet The making of the beef cutlet was a family ritual in itself My mom tells me that it’s a tradition she picked up from her sister-in-law but it’s been a fixture at every Christmas and Easter at our home The meat would be bought a day before cleaned and refrigerated On Christmas morning or even the evening before my dad or uncle would cut the meat into large chunks for it to be boiled with the masalas till it was tender and aromatic The next day potatoes would be boiled the meat minced and the masala made by the women One of the men would lend muscle power by mixing the masala all together to the right consistency and the kids would help with patting the beef cutlets into shape We’d shape them as we chatted away or sang carols and handed them over to our mom for her to crumb and fry up the cutlets The crust would be crisp just a tad sweet from the rusk instead of fresh bread crumbs The inside was perfectly spiced and soft The abundance of onions and potatoes would make it

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The coronavirus has crushed the share prices of almost all leisure-related stocks. One of the most high-profile victims has been cinema-owner Cineworld (LSE: CINE). Since mid-February, its stock has dropped a simply horrible 70% in value. Could this be a great contrarian buy? Not in my opinion. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Steering clear of CineworldCineworld was, of course, forced to close all its sites back in March in an effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19. While there’s now hope that restrictions will be lifted, things are very unlikely to return to normal soon. Indeed, the continuation of social distancing may even lead studios to postpone blockbuster releases until they can be sure of making a decent profit. They could even bypass the silver screen completely.The huge reduction in ticket sales isn’t the only problem Cineworld has. Thanks to a questionable acquisition strategy, the company has an absolute shedload of debt on the balance sheet. Reducing this burden could prove very difficult. What’s more, the relentless rise in the popularity of streaming services, such as Amazon Prime and Netflix, and the quality of home entertainment systems these days makes me wonder whether cinemas will ever be as popular as they once were. Why go to the trouble of travelling to a cinema and sitting among strangers when you can replicate at least some of the experience in your own living room?Taking all this into account, I just can’t see the road ahead being anything but rough for Cineworld and its shareholders. A valuation of just 4 times earnings may be enticing but feels fairly meaningless as things stand. For me, another part of the leisure sector looks a far safer bet, albeit at far higher valuations. A safer alternativeA clear beneficiary of lockdown has been gaming companies. With most of us stuck indoors, it’s no wonder this activity has become one of the most popular ways of passing the time. Today’s update from publisher Frontier Developments (LSE: FDEV) only serves as confirmation. The firm is behind four hugely popular games: Elite Dangerous, Planet Coaster, Jurassic World Evolution and, most recently, Planet Zoo. According to the company, demand for these titles has “continued to be high” over the last month. Sales of the aforementioned Planet Zoo, for example, passed the one million mark earlier in May, despite only being available since last November.With revenue now likely to come in above the previous range of £65-73m, Frontier now expects operating profit for 2019/20 will be “materially ahead” of the previous estimate (roughly £11m-£13m). What a difference to Cineworld’s plight!We’ll get another update on trading on 8 June. Nevertheless, CEO David Braben is already confident the company has “a bright future post-lockdown” and that new players will continue engaging with its games.One drawbackAs mentioned, the one issue with buying gaming stocks now is that most trade on (very) high valuations. Frontier’s shares were on an eye-watering P/E of 65 before this morning’s near-13% rise. As optimistic as I am on the company’s outlook, that’s too rich for me right now.We may, or may not, get a repeat of March’s market crash. If the former, I know which of Cineworld and Frontier I’d feel more comfortable taking a stake in.
