2008-09 VOR sets sail for the blue yonder

The Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009 starts on the 4-5th October, when eight Volvo Open 70s begin adding points to the leaderboard at the start line off Alicante for the first in-port and pro-am races, prior to the race start of the first leg to Cape Town on October 11. Volvo Ocean Race TV launched earlier this year, will show video content including news, features, on-board footage and interviews when the boats are at sea. Also live coverage of all in-port races. Frostad adds, "And now, with the Media Crew Member on board, our 'embedded reporters', we now have the ability to play to our strengths in capturing every ounce of the action, the sheer speed of the Volvo Open 70s, as well as the emotional highs and lows endured by the guys on board."

The antioxidant property in green tea has catechins which
are known to be effective for various infection conditions and the
associated damage caused by bacteria, etc. People who find
themselves participating in fat loss also need dietary supplements to help keep them healthy.

The term functional food is used in Europe for foods that can improve our state of health or reduce the risk of diseases.
