Link to Winter League BLOG

Hey guys! Thanks for the feedback on the poster. The boys have gone ahead with the BLOG design since and loaded our special Jingle on the BLOG. Take a peek.

Status at this point is,
1) We have the FAQs almost done.

2) PZ has the account opened.

3) We're still waiting to see if Jin can put up the registration on Blog. Otherwise we would need Clarence's help on this. Mau, may need you to work your charm on this one.

4) I am honestly torn on whether to have a mixed or gender league. A new development in my point of view is if we go ahead with league + no breaks for any other tournaments, attendance may be an issue. And if we have only 80 girls sign up, i.e. 4 teams, how fun is it to meet the same team every 2 weeks for 10 weeks? I am leaning towards a gender league with strict 4-3 line. Would still like your feedback.

Thanks all!

Muddy Revival

DRATSS membership hits all time high
DRATSS- The team may soon see a complete rejuvenation. During the past months, the team's performance has been stumbled, and almost succumbed to the long season of membership drought.

The last training saw 17 seniors and 11 newcomers working out their moves on the newly laid red soil at Bishan. Sporting new faces from Canberra Secondary, these latest additions to the nominal roll has not only breathed in some fresh enthusiasm but also, have become valuable additions to the arsenal.

The long awaited revival has raised hopes for many, especially for team captain, Jianye, and vice captain, Xuefen, who have selflessly made many personal sacrifices to keep the torch burning. However, their persistence will not be shortlived, even though their efforts have begun to pay off. Possible mid week trainings might be arranged for physical and skill conditioning, official confirmation on this matter has yet been released.

Information on Cancer


I received this reading via an email, and have adapted it for posting here. Even though it's not related to frisbee, but just wanted to share it, in case it is useful (read: no water bottles in freezer).

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

2. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

3. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

4. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

5. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

6. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful.
A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains,seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

Other Do's and Don'ts
Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

b. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

c. No plastic containers in micro.

d. No water bottles in freezer.

e. No plastic wrap in microwave.
Glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.
