Bob MacArthur is the Refueller of the Quarter – again. Bob issued 839,741 litres

The Refueller of the Quarter honour has been bestowed seven times, and this is
Bob’s third win.
Tuesday, 20 January, 2015
The
RCAF
is
pleased to announce
the appointment of Capt
Denis “Cheech” Beaulieu
as the pilot for the 2015
CF-18
Demonstration
Team.
Flying his speciallypainted CF-18 Hornet
commemorating
the
75th anniversary of the
Battle of Britain, Capt
Beaulieu will wow crowds
around the continent
during the 2015 air show
season.
“I am really looking
forward to taking the
CF-18 all over Canada
and the United States,”
said
Capt
Beaulieu,
who is a member of
425 “Alouettes” Tactical
Fighter Squadron at
3
Wing
Bagotville,
Quebec.
“This job gives me the
opportunity to celebrate
aviation with audiences
all over, while flying the
Hornet in a way that few
pilots get to fly. Best of
all, I get to do this all
with a team of highly
talented
professionals
who work together to put
on a great show.”
The
CF-18
Demonstration
Team
selects a theme for each
year and 2015 will honour
the 75th anniversary
of the Battle of Britain.
The Hornet will feature a
unique commemorative
paint job designed by
veteran design director
Jim Belliveau of 4 Wing’s
410
Squadron.
The
aircraft will be unveiled
this spring.
A
native
of
Sherbrooke,
Quebec,
Capt Beaulieu graduated
in 2005 with a mechanical
engineering degree from
Sherbrooke University
and an engineering
school in Paris, France,
where he spent two years
as an exchange student.
He joined the Canadian
Armed Forces in 2006
with the ambition of
becoming
a
fighter
pilot. Five years later,
he fulfilled that dream
when he completed his
CF-18 training and was
posted to 425 Squadron.
Capt Beaulieu has
participated in multiple
training
missions
and exercises all over
Canada, the US and
South America. He has
also conducted many
missions in Canada, as
well as NATO missions
in Iceland and Romania.
He has over 1,100
flying hours on highperformance
military
aircraft, including 780
hours on the Hornet.
“The Royal Canadian
Air Force has yet another
opportunity to connect
with its cherished history
by commemorating the
75th anniversary of the
Battle of Britain with our
CF-18
Demonstration
Team,” said MGen David
Wheeler, commander of
1 Canadian Air Division
and
the
Canadian
NORAD Region. “Capt
Beaulieu has proven his
abilities and will be a
great representative of
the RCAF all over North
America this year.”

What
does
Wing
Foods’ all-ranks kitchen
have in common with the
mess hall at Alcatraz, the
most infamous prison in
US history?
Aside from excellent
food, not much.
For all the hardships
prisoners
endured
at
Alcatraz, the facility in the
middle of San Francisco
Bay insisted on having the
best food in the US prison
system. From the wardens’
perspective, good food was
not about pampering the
inmates – it was all about
security.
They saw that in other
prisons the usual place for
a riot to erupt was the mess
hall, and the usual trigger
was bad, demoralizing
institutional food.
Prisoners at Alcatraz
only had twenty minutes
to eat, but the meals
were excellent, prepared
with ingredients brought
over each day from San
Francisco. Flavour, quality,
variety and nutrition were
the keys to healthy prisoner
morale.
When I mentioned this
tidbit in a conversation
with MWO Duane Schmidt,
NCM in charge of the allranks kitchen, he knew
all about it. As a career
military cook, he knows
that good food is a huge
part of troop morale, and
he’s excited about what the
new National Standardized
Cycle Menu (NSCM) brings.
Please see our story on
page 1.
As
a
household
cook, I have to admit that
something that can be
reduced to a label like
“NSCM” doesn’t sound
especially delicious. It has
an institutional, military
ring to it.
But the new approach,
with more food made from
scratch and less from cans
and packages, is designed
to fuel Canada’s fighting
force with good nutrition
while it maintains morale
with
fresh,
flavourful
meals.
In my own military
career I had the pleasure
of enjoying some of the
great meals our military
cooks can prepare. Make
no mistake, these people
can cook. If the NSCM plan
allows them to make fuller
use of their skills, it should
be a winner.
And you won’t have to
sit across from Al Capone
at lunchtime.

SUDOKU
CAPRICORN - December 22 - January 19
The clutter bug strikes at home, and you’re left to sort through
the mess. Take it easy, Capricorn. Good will come of your
donations. A text intrigues you.
AQUARIUS - January 20 - February 18
A tryst among friends does not end well. Stay impartial,
Aquarius, or risk losing a very valuable relationship. A home
improvement project gets off to a fine start.
PISCES - February 19 - March 20
Blessings multiply with the arrival of a long-lost pal. Enjoy the
walk down memory lane, Pisces. A message from an admirer
points to a solution.
ARIES - March 21 - April 19
The workload increases, and you must find assistance if you are
to succeed. Start with that coworker who rarely gets the time to
shine, Aries.
TAURUS - April 20 - May 20
News flash, Taurus. You may be on board, but that doesn’t
mean everyone else is. Prepare for some resistance and work
to overcome it.
GEMINI - May 21 - June 21
Jeepers, Gemini. You’ve got a lot on your mind these days, and
it is starting to wear on you. Take time out to work through some
things.
CANCER - June 22 - July 22
Uh-uh-uh, Cancer. You’ve done more than your fair share. Step
aside and let someone else have a turn. A kitchen mishap turns
into a family favorite.
LEO - July 23 - August 22
Rats, Leo. Just when you think you have a handle on things,
further inquiries are made and more projects are added to the
list. Look to a mentor to help.
VIRGO - August 23 - September 22
Never fear, Virgo. Dreams thought lost will resurface again,
and this time, they will be within reach. A challenge at work is
tackled with ease.
LIBRA - September 23 - October 22
Come on, Libra. There are risks with almost everything. Don’t
let the thought of losing deter you from taking aim. Aim high,
and you will succeed.
SCORPIO - October 23 - November 21
Congrats, Scorpio. Your idea is approved, but there is no money
in the budget for additional staff. You will have to make do with
what you have and work around the clock.
SAGITTARIUS - November 22 - December 21
Compromise is key, Sagittarius. Give a little and learn a lot. A
scheduling change sends everyone but you into panic mode.
Take the lead.

Health Can Be Catching
Losing It is the Easy Part!
TAMMY BUCHANAN
Research by the
Heart
and
Stroke
Foundation found that
62 per cent of Canadians
surveyed lost at least
five pounds in the last
five years, but failed to
keep it off. Many people
can attest to losing 50
pounds or more – the
problem is it’s the same
five pounds over and
over again! Why is it so
hard to keep it off?
Neuroscientist
Sandra
Aamodt
discussed this idea in
her TED Talk. She said
your brain has a sense of
what it thinks you should
weigh. That number
tends to be 10-15 pounds
around what you already
weigh.
This
range
is regulated by your
hypothalamus
which
works like a thermostat
to adjust your feelings
of hunger as well as your
metabolism and activity.
It will do a lot of things
“behind the scenes” to
try and keep your weight
stable. So whether you are
overweight or thin, when
you lose weight the brain
thinks you are starving.
It will adjust your
metabolism to try and
save you. Dr Rudy Lebiel
of Columbia University
found that people who
lost 10 per cent of their
body weight burned 250400 calories less because
their metabolism was
suppressed.
With
emotional
triggers, or autopilot
eating in front of the
television, or excessive
portions, keeping off
the weight you lost can
seem impossible. One
possible
solution
is
mindfulness. According
to Dr Kelly McGonigal,
“mindfulness
is
the
process
of
paying
attention
both
to
inner cues and to your
environment.”
The
department
of Food Science and
Human Nutrition at the
University of Illinois
took part in an ice
cream social,
buffet
style. Those that were
given
bowls
nearly
twice the size of the
other individuals served
themselves 31 per cent
more ice cream than
those given smaller
bowls. The kicker is
the people with the big
bowls and small bowls
estimated that they
had served themselves
the same number of
ounces!
Susan Albers, author
of Eat, Drink and Be
Mindful introduces three
components of mindful
eating. One suggestion
is to be mindful of your
eating in the moment.
That is, be aware of the
taste, the smell, and
the enjoyment you are
getting
from
your
food. It may mean that a
little bit of extra time is
needed to take part in
the meal versus eating
on the go. A second
suggestion is to record
your eating habits in a
non-judgmental
way.
For example, you may
record that you always
eat your lunch at your
desk, or supper in front
of the television. Lastly,
record your emotional
and
environmental
triggers
for
eating.
When you are aware of
your personal triggers, it
is easier to avoid them.
Mindful
eating
involves learning to
understand your body’s
signs, eating when you
are hungry and stopping
when you are full. This is
a long term approach to
making positive changes
to your health.
Psychologists suggest
intuitive eaters are less
likely to be overweight.
Something to think
about!
