Dr Joshis Holistic Detox
"If someone doesn't comment within two weeks on how great you're looking - then you're cheating." - Dr Joshi. Dr Joshi's craving-free detox attracts stars and supermodels from all over the world to his Wimpole Street clinic. Now, in his first book, Dr Joshi will reveal the secret of his metabolic detox dieting plan and explain how it has transformed the lives and health of celebrities such as Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ralph Fiennes. Based on avoiding foods that are refined, acidic and toxic such as wheat, potatoes, red meat, alcohol and dairy produce, the idea is to alter the PH balance of the body from acid to alkaline - flushing toxins from the system, restoring energy levels and losing weight. It is also about 'cutting down' on certain foods rather than 'cutting out', and changing your palate so you will actually dislike the taste of those foods which are bad for you, so preventing cravings. By following Joshi's intensive three-week programme and three-week maintenance course any one of us can shake off the strain of a high-pressure life and get the body and energy-levels we've always dreamed of.
California Condor Landing
Range: currently located in the wild only in isolated areas of reintroduction: California and Arizona in the United States, and Baja California, Mexico
Habitat: wooded mountains and scrublands
Nature’s cleanup crew
California condors are vultures. Like all vultures, they feed on carrion. Condors prefer large dead animals like deer, cattle, and sheep, but they also eat rodents, rabbits, and even fish. They don’t have a good sense of smell like turkey vultures, so they find their food mostly by their keen eyesight. These large birds gorge themselves on 2 to 3 pounds (1 to 1.36 kilograms) of food at a time, and can then go without food for several days until they find another carcass. Like other scavengers, condors are part of nature’s cleanup crew, and they are an important part of the ecosystem. Without them, things could get pretty messy!
At the Wild Animal Park the adult condors are fed either rabbits, rats, beef spleens (melts), trout, or a ground meat product called carnivore diet four days a week. They are not given the same items every time. This encourages the birds to try different items. Wild condors don’t eat every day, so the condors at the Wild Animal Park have “fast” days, where they don’t get any food either. This gives them a chance to digest what they’ve already eaten, and is similar to what they would experience in the wild.
Condors are neat!
Some people think of vultures as "dirty,” but actually, California condors are pretty tidy. After eating, they clean their heads and necks by rubbing them on grass, rocks, or branches. Condors also bathe frequently and spend hours smoothing and drying their feathers. They even have a very hardy and effective immune system, so they don’t get sick from any of the bacteria they may come in contact with when feeding on decaying animals.
Bald and beautiful
Adult California condors have distinctive pink, bald heads. They may not be the prettiest birds you’ve ever seen, but those bald heads are perfectly designed to keep rotting food from sticking to them as they eat. The skin on the bare heads of adults can also express some emotions. It turns a deep red-pink during courtship or when the birds are excited or alarmed. The adults also have a throat sack that they can puff out during courtship displays.
A home in the cliffs
Crevices and caves in rocky cliffs make for great condor nest sites, although no nest itself is constructed for the egg. The adult female will lay a single whitish or pale green-blue egg between January and March. The chick hatches almost two months later with bare patches on its head, neck, belly, and underwing. At about eight weeks old the chick will start to wander outside of its nest area. By five or six months the youngster is ready to practice flying.
Impressive in flight
When they fly, California condors are a wonderful sight to behold. That’s when their impressive wings are shown in all their glory and when you can see the triangular patch of white flashing under each wing. The condors catch thermal air currents that rise up as the sun heats the ground, and with those huge wings they can stay aloft for hours, soaring through the skies as they scan the fields below. They can reach speeds of up to 55 miles per hour (88 kilometers per hour), and they can climb to altitudes of 15,000 feet (4,600 meters).
The magnificent thunderbird
California condors are one of the largest flying birds. At one time there were thousands of them in the wild, ranging across the western United States and into Mexico. Native American tribes have great respect for the condor and see it as a symbol of power. They call it the thunderbird because they believe it brings thunder to the skies with the beating of its huge wings.
Humans and condors
Destruction of habitat, poaching, and lead poisoning almost wiped out the California condor population. In 1982, only 23 birds remained in the wild. The San Diego Zoo was given permission to begin the first captive propagation program for California condors. The program also involved the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, California Department of Fish and Game, the National Audubon Society, and the Los Angeles Zoo.
Conservation at work
Thanks to the conservation-breeding program, within 20 years the population of California condors grew to almost 200 birds. It took a variety of techniques developed by scientists and bird keepers to do this. Eggs were removed from condor nests, encouraging the females to lay replacement eggs. This is called "double clutching.” The removed eggs were placed in incubators for hatching. To make the hand-raised condors feel like they were being raised by their parents, the newly hatched chicks were fed and cared for using adult look-alike condor puppets. Taped sounds of adult condors were played to the chicks as well. In the wild, both parents incubate the egg and care for the chick, and they may only raise one chick every other year.
The Rape Continues!

As a member of the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association and an avid fishermen and conservationist, the Menhaden issue brings sadness and frustration to the hearts of many. I have followed this issue and fought for the protection of this species for many years but it seems greed and the powerful commercial fishing lobby will continue to devastate this key fishery until it's too late. The following appears in the Providence Journal on Monday, June 4, 2007
"Most important fish in the Ocean State"
H. BRUCE FRANKLIN
THE STRUGGLE over menhaden now agitating Rhode Island has actually been raging
intermittently ever since the 1870s. One major difference between then and now
is the opposing sides. Today it looks like recreational anglers and
environmentalists on one side of a tug-of-war pulling against lobstermen, other
commercial fishermen, and the bait fishery on the other. Back then it was the
bait fishermen, the lobstermen, other commercial fishermen, and recreational
anglers all engaged in battle, sometimes violent, against the main threat to
their livelihood and the marine environment: the menhaden reduction industry.
This industry, which had sprung up in the decades after the Civil War, used the
newly invented purse seine to scoop up the colossal schools of menhaden that
kept our coastal waters clean and fed all the carnivorous fish we so highly
value. Dozens of factories then “reduced” the menhaden to industrial
commodities, mainly fertilizer and oils used in the rapidly expanding industrial
economy. By 1879, there were 13 of these factories in Narragansett Bay alone,
and the industry had displaced whaling as the main source of industrial oils.
Commercial fishermen, including those who had been catching relatively modest
amounts of menhaden to be used as bait by all commercial and recreational
fishers, realized that the reduction industry was destroying the wondrous bounty
of fish so crucial to New England. At least one menhaden factory in Maine was
actually burned down by rioting commercial fishermen. Maine, where twenty
factories had been hastily erected between 1868 and 1878, in 1879 became the
first state to outlaw the reduction industry.
But it was too late. In 1879, menhaden were gone from Maine waters. The pattern
kept repeating down the Atlantic Coast as the reduction industry destroyed the
marine ecology in area after area. State after state followed Maine’s example,
outlawing the industry after the damage became too blatant to ignore. Today, 13
of the 15 Atlantic states have banned the industry, leaving only Virginia and
North Carolina to allow this senseless strip mining of their bays and all of our
offshore waters beyond three miles out.
Those 19th-Century struggles produced the first systematic consciousness of the
interdependence of species, an idea central to 19th-Century conservationism and
modern environmentalism. At first the concept seemed quite bizarre. The
Anglo-American diet does not generally include terrestrial carnivores, so the
culture was traditionally hostile to carnivores, such as wolves and foxes, that
prey on our delicious sheep, cattle, and chickens. On the other hand, we do love
to eat lots of marine carnivores. But the marine carnivores need to feed on the
herbivorous menhaden. So it was fishermen, both commercial and recreational,
that came to the seemingly outlandish conclusion that we had to protect the prey
to preserve our predators. This seemed akin to protecting sheep to preserve our
wolves. And yet that is why the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association wants
to protect menhaden, in order to preserve our striped bass, bluefish, and other
It was not until the late 20th Century that people understood the other vital
reason to protect menhaden. These oily, smelly little fish are the indispensable
cleaners of our inshore waters, most especially estuaries like Narragansett Bay
that otherwise, overloaded with nitrogen, get choked with potentially
devastating blooms of algae. Algae and detritus are menhadens’ main diet.
Working in tandem with the Narragansett’s other stupendous filtering machine —
oysters — menhaden used to keep the Bay clean and pulsing with a spectacular
population of fish and shellfish. Algae could not mushroom into killer blooms,
there were no dead zones, and sunlight could penetrate clear water to support
the vegetation that thrived on the Bay’s bottom, providing oxygen and habitat
for fish and shellfish.
Today, alas, recreational anglers, lobstermen, the bait fishery, other
commercial fishermen, and environmentalists find themselves squabbling over the
pitiful remains of menhaden left over by the rapacious reduction industry. On
the Atlantic coast, that industry now consists of a single monopoly, the
Houston-based Omega Protein. Having ravaged the great Chesapeake Bay to the
brink of ecological collapse, Om
