SEWARD (AP) — A floating Arctic laboratory four decades in the making has arrived at its home port and stands poised to begin unlocking mysteries of one of the wildest places on Earth. The 261-foot Sikuliaq (pronounced see-KOO’-lee-ak) will leave Seward this month, sail around the Aleutian Islands and tuck into sea ice in the Bering Sea. The voyage will be the final trial for its reinforced hull, propulsion system and array of cranes and booms that will deploy instruments ranging from small submarines and plankton nets to buoys that weigh a ton.
Last spring, the World Health Organization proposed guidelines limiting added sugar intake to five percent of calories per day. That amounts to 25 grams, or six tablespoons, for an adult. The American Heart Association recommends the same limit for women, and a slightly higher limit of almost 38 grams, or nine tablespoons, for men.
