By Chowning JohnsonUniversity of GeorgiaWhen a storm knocks out their electricity, people need to knowwhen frozen foods are still safe to eat. University of Georgiaexperts warn that if certain foods aren’t kept cold, they couldbe dangerous to your health.Keep food cold”Ideally, when the power goes out, the first thing you should dois place a refrigerator/freezer thermometer in the freezer, ifthere isn’t one already in there,” said Elizabeth Andress, anExtension Service food safety specialist with the University ofGeorgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences.The recommended temperature for food storage in refrigerators is40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder. If the freezer stays as cold asthe refrigerator, many foods will be safe to use or refreeze,Andress said.Dry ice can also help save many foods in your freezer. “A50-pound block of dry ice will protect food in a 20-cubic footfreezer for three to four days,” Andress said.The amount of food in the freezer will determine in part how longthe food will stay frozen. The fuller the fridge, the longer thefood will stay frozen while the power is off.If it’s packed, Andress said, the freezer will hold itstemperature about 48 hours if you don’t open it. If it’shalf-full, it will hold its temperature only 24 hours. “Thequestion of safety becomes a bigger issue the longer you’rewithout power,” she said.Rule of thumbPerishable foods need to be thrown away if their temperature orthe freezer temperature rises above 40 degrees. Different foodshave specific telltale signs for deciding what to keep and whatto discard:Meat and poultry. If the freezerstays 40 degrees or lower, meat and poultry may be refrozen if ithas no signs of spoilage, such as off odor and off color.If they have any sign of spoilage or the freezer or food hasreached more than 40 degrees, dispose of them. If you don’t havea thermometer, refreeze only the meat or poultry that stillcontains ice crystals.If any foods in the refrigerator or freezer have come in contactwith raw meat juices, throw them out, too.Shellfish, vegetables and cookedfoods. If the freezer maintains a temperature of 40degrees or below or the food still has ice crystals, it may berefrozen. Otherwise, like meat and poultry, discard it. If anyvegetables show signs of spoilage, throw them out, regardless oftemperature.Fruits. Fruits have the leastamount of quality damage during thawing. If they don’t show anysigns of spoilage, you may safely refreeze them. However, thetexture won’t be the same after refreezing. Thawed fruits may beused in cooking or making jams, jellies or preserves.Ice cream. Throw it out if it’spartially thawed. Freezer or ice cream temperatures higher than40 degrees could cause ice cream to be unsafe.Creamed foods, puddings and creampies. These are safe to refreeze only if the freezer hasstayed 40 degrees or below. If it rises above 40, discard them.Breads, doughnuts, cookies, cakes andnuts. These may be refrozen as long as they show no signsof mold growth. They typically refreeze better than most foods.Shelf life. “If you plan to usethe food that has been thawing in the freezer while the power isout, make sure it has maintained a temperature of 40 degrees orbelow. And use it within two to three days,” Andress said. “Treatit as if you had been deliberately thawing it in therefrigerator.”While refrozen food is safe to eat if you follow these tips, youmay need to offset some degree of quality loss by using it soonerthan you may have originally planned.To learn more about these and other food safety topics, contactthe UGA Family and Consumer Sciences Extension through yourcounty Extension office.(Chowning Johnson is a student writer with the University ofGeorgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)

Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 31, 2016 at 9:25 pm With a sweeping declaration, Jim Boeheim injected flare into a team that lacked it. A dozen 3-pointers set as the desired minimum. No postseason last year, little expectations this one. With NCAA investigations still at the forefront of Syracuse basketball, a 3-point-savvy approach gave it a respite from everything else.In two exhibition games, Syracuse made 26-of-61 shots from beyond the arc. An astronomical number of makes and takes over a two-game stretch compared to last season, even for scrimmages. In the early going, Boeheim said the Orange would live and die by the long ball.SU has benefited from the 3 (shooting 11-of-23 in a two-point win against Duke) and suffered from the 3 (shooting 5-of-26 in a 12-point loss to St. John’s). The Orange has also lost to Clemson and Virginia despite making 13 deep balls in each game. But in Saturday’s 60-57 win against Georgia Tech, a team Boeheim called one of the better ones in the league, Syracuse (15-8, 5-5 Atlantic Coast) made only six 3s and showed dimensions it hadn’t before.“Tonight wasn’t necessarily about hitting 3s,” Tyler Lydon said after Saturday’s win. “It was more on the defensive end and just getting to the basket.”Boeheim praised Malachi Richardson after the game for attacking the rim when his 3s weren’t falling. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNine times this season Syracuse has made fewer than 10 3s against a Power 5 opponent. Only three of those have been wins, one Saturday, one against Boston College — who sits 0-8 in the ACC — and one against Connecticut in a game Syracuse made a season-high 24 free throws.The Orange escaped against Georgia Tech because of late free throws, but only made half the total it had against the Huskies. SU was also facing an opponent, unlike the Eagles, whose five conference losses had come by an average of just 5.2 points per game. Syracuse’s early-season identity faded as the game lagged down the stretch Saturday and the Orange was tasked with dipping to the depths of an arsenal it had rarely explored through 22 games.“You have to play defense in a zone,” Boeheim said. “It’s not some freakin’ magic trick here.”Georgia Tech’s previous lowest point total in conference play was 64. Syracuse reset that to 57, almost 20 points below the Yellow Jackets’ season average and only the seventh time SU has allowed fewer than 60 points in 23 games. The Orange held GT to a field-goal percentage 7 percent lower than its season average and a 3-point clip 9 percent lower than its season average.On top of a stout defensive effort, Syracuse shot 46.9 percent from 2-point range while it took its fourth-fewest amount of 3s on the season. In the final 10:26, Syracuse restricted Georgia Tech to 10 points while only one 3-pointer accounted for a sliver of SU’s final 13 points.“It wasn’t falling for us so we were able to get in the lane and make plays and make things happen,” Trevor Cooney said. “But I mean our defense picked up, we knew we weren’t making shots so we had to get stops.”Georgia Tech struggled to pound Syracuse’s thin backline via passes through the top of the zone like opponents have so often done. Gbinije cut off bounce passes headed to the middle of the paint. Dajuan Coleman neutralized the ACC’s best rebounder in Georgia Tech’s Charles Mitchell. Malachi Richardson and Gbinije, two of SU’s best 3-point shooters, put a seal on the game from the foul line.It wasn’t the conventional Syracuse that has come to rely on the deep ball from a guard-heavy lineup, even as Boeheim played four of them for part of the final five minutes.It was, however, a Syracuse that flashed dimensions on both ends that it hadn’t before.“If we do those things,” Gbinije said, “making shots is just going to be a plus for us.”Matt Schneidman is the sports editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

England were wrong-footed in the foursomes, with Wales taking three of the five points and at one time, looked set to do even better. However, a battling finish, featuring three of the team’s new caps, kept England in touch. Jack Gaunt and David Hague, who are both making their debut at this level, continued their 100 per cent foursomes record with a 3/1 win. Tags: Men’s Home Internationals Ireland made no mistakes today as they worked their way to their comfortable win. They had a 4-1 advantage after the foursomes and went on to win six of the 10 singles. It was a huge morale boost for the team and they quickly built on it during the singles. Wales took an early lead in the top two matches, but the other eight England players were all ahead as they went through five holes. It looked even better when Gian-Marco Petrozzi clawed back his early deficit and reached the turn all square. Then, the experienced Bradley Moore (pictured right) and new cap Jake Burnage came from one down after 15 to win on the last. The defending champions hold a slender advantage over England in terms of games won, which will be in their favour should tomorrow’s match be halved. Wales and Scotland will play-off for third place. Will Whiteoak and Todd Clements were pulled back to all square, Jack Gaunt and Bradley Moore fell behind and only Josh Hilleard and Jake Burnage were up. Images copyright Leaderboard Photography England will meet defending champions Ireland tomorrow in a winner-takes-all battle for the title of Men’s Home Internationals champions at Moortown, Yorkshire. If Ireland win it will be the first time in their history that they’ve held the Raymond Trophy for four years in a row. England, meanwhile, are seeking their first win since Ganton in 2013 – and their 37th outright victory. 17 Aug 2017 It’s England v Ireland in title showdown But the pendulum swung back in England’s favour on the 18th green. The opponents of both Whiteoak and Clements had makeable putts which would have given a huge boost to the Welsh cause. However both missed and the English pair added their halves to the team tally. Team captain Kevin Tucker again praised his new caps, remarking “They all collected points in the singles when the chips were down. The teams set up the showdown by both winning their matches today, Ireland defeating Scotland 10-5 while England beat Wales 9.5-5.5 – a scoreline which disguises the tremendous battle between the two sides. “Tomorrow will be a good game. Ireland are the strong favourites with a very experienced side but our young players are looking forward to the challenge facing them.” “I didn’t realise it was for the win, but when I saw the scoreboard on the 16th tee it looked like a halved match and so I knew my point was needed,” said Hilleard. “Going into the singles behind we needed to press and the guys have obviously done it. Everyone will be happy and ready for tomorrow.” Click here for full scores Before long England had their first point on the board, thanks to David Hague who polished off his opponent 8/6 when his putt to go five-under par on 12 was conceded. The score looked even healthier when Petrozzi and Dan Brown both won their games to edge England ahead. But that was the signal for Wales to pile the pressure back on. The overall result became more decisive when Jack Gaunt won the 18th to square his match and Bradley Moore won one-up. Jake Burnage (pictured left), playing as anchorman, made very solid progress at the back, closing out his game 5/4 and leaving the way clear for Hilleard (pictured top) to clinch the win on the 17th, watched by his delighted grandparents.
