GSA boys fall to Mount View in Class C North title game

first_imgHAMPDEN — The George Stevens Academy boys’ soccer team’s season came to an end Tuesday with a 3-1 loss to Mount View in the Class C North championship game.GSA’s lone goal on the evening came via a long-range strike from sophomore David Gadsby. Mount View got two goals from Elijah Allen after getting the opener from Brennan Grant.Third-ranked Mount View (15-2) got on the board inside eight minutes as Grant fired the Mustangs into the lead on the wet Hampden Academy turf. Yet the Eagles bounced back through Gadsby, who unleashed a powerful shot from outside the 18-yard box to the bottom right corner to tie it.Mount View fought back with a goal from Allen with 14:49 left in the first half, though, and the senior forward completed his brace with 29:23 remaining in the second. No. 4 GSA (11-3-3) controlled much of the possession the rest of the way but couldn’t find the goals needed to advance.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThe loss denied GSA its first regional title since winning the Class C East crown in 2002. Mount View, which claimed its first regional championship since 1980 with the win, will face Class C South No. 3 seed Waynflete (15-2) in the state title game at 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at Falmouth High School.last_img read more

James Clear: The Powerful Story Behind One Of The Best Books On Habits – Episode #128

first_imgPodcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 59:06 — 47.4MB)Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Google Podcasts | RSSIt’s a bit presumptuous to claim a book is one of the best books on habits that exist. There are lots of great books on the subject out there, including Charles Duhigg’s seminal work, “The Power of Habit.” But Anthony is not shy about saying that his guest, James Clear has penned exactly that.James and Anthony share a common story: a debilitating brain injury that forced them to discover a new way of living. For James, his recovery took him to a new understanding of habits and the power of stacking simple, easy habits one on top of the other to create momentum and change. Bear that in mind, these are lessons James learned for himself rather than just information he consumed and regurgitated from the research of others.Maybe it’s not so presumptuous to say James’ work is one of the best books on habits. After all, he’s lived the story that has made it possible. Listen to hear his story, learn about the aggregation of habits, and how he recommends you apply what he’s learned to your own [email protected] describes the powerful story behind one of the best books on #habits, his own. It’s on this episode of #InTheArena with Anthony @Iannarino. #salesClick To TweetOne Of The Best Books On Habits Was Penned Because of a Tragic CircumstanceAs is the case with many of the significant things that are created in this world, James Clear’s book, “Atomic Habits” was birthed in the forge of suffering. A freak baseball accident put James in a desperate place, fighting to recover from brain damage.His journey out of that debilitating place led him to the realization that small, simple habits can be stacked one on top of the other to bring about incremental but powerful change.This is not a conversation with a theorist. James knows what he’s talking about – not only because he’s researched the topic, but because he’s lived it. Be sure you listen to hear his incredible story.Why Systems Trump Goals Every TimeAnthony is the first to say that goals are important. But with the help of James’ book (and other resources) he’s come to see that they are not the most important thing. As James explains, goals are important because we have to know where we are headed but to focus on the destination to the exclusion of the actions that get us there is folly.James encourages those who are trying to accomplish goals to focus instead on building systems into their lives that naturally lead to the desired outcome or goal. That puts the focus where it rightly belongs – on doing rather than hoping.This conversation clarifies so many things when it comes to building habits – and it flows directly out of James’ book on the subject. Be sure you listen.Listen to learn why #systems trump #goals every time. @JamesClear speaks about the power of #habit on this episode of #InTheArena with Anthony @Iannarino. #salesClick To TweetTransform Your Life By Casting Votes For Your Identity Every DayHabits are not formed by self-discipline or self-control alone. They have to be birthed from a deeper, more fundamental place. James Clear insists that if you don’t have a sense of identity tied to a habit, it will fall by the wayside sooner rather than later.For example, going to the gym for 5 minutes a day provides the basis for the reality that you are a person who goes to the gym. That’s the first baby step toward being the kind of person who makes use of the gym in productive ways. It’s an identity issue that you can take control of and master.In this conversation, James shares a handful of other examples to help you get your mind around why identity is foundational to establishing good habits.Get Rid of the Cues That Prompt Bad Habits and You Get Rid of the HabitsCase in point: If you want to cut back on a habit of stopping into Dairy Queen for a soft-serve cone on your way home from work, you don’t do it through a daily study of the DQ menu so you are clear about what you need to avoid. You do it by avoiding Dairy Queen altogether.That may mean you establish new driving patterns so you don’t pass by it on your way home from work. It could mean, avoiding looking in the direction of the store as you pass it.James Clear refers to the circumstances that set us up for indulging in a bad habit as “cues” – and in this conversation, he explains the simple but powerful ways we can be proactive about eliminating the cues for the sake of eventually removing the habits they fuel.Don’t miss this conversation. If you have habits to build into or remove from your life, James’ practical approach and clear guidance will be helpful.Get rid of the cues that prompt bad #habits and you get rid of the habits. @JamesClear speaks about the power of #habit on this episode of #InTheArena with Anthony @Iannarino. #salesClick To TweetOutline of this great episode How James Clear got started blogging and where it’s lead him How a traumatic brain injury pushed James to learn habits, the topic of his book The concept of aggregating marginal gains and how James has leveraged it Why you need to know what you want, and the power of systems over goals Who you want to be is the starting point for every step of growth The difference between James’ approach and Charles Duhigg’s approach How expectations fuel life more than reactions Why it’s so hard to start a new habit Removing habits by getting rid of cues that prompt the habit James’ most difficult habits to begin The story of breaking bad habits and how James did itResources & Links mentioned in this episodeJames Clear – http://JamesClear.comJames’ book: Atomic Habits – http://a.co/d/4NyN3GPSPONSOR: Mailtag: https://Mailtag.ioThe Lindy Effect : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindy_effectThe aggregation of marginal gains : https://jamesclear.com/marginal-gainsSimon Sinek : https://startwithwhy.com/Florence Foster Jenkins : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence_Foster_JenkinsEdward Thorndike : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_ThorndikeB.F.

first_imgShearer tells Man Utd fans: Your club’s still a messby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer England captain Alan Shearer says Manchester United fans shouldn’t get carried away with victory at Cardiff City.Shearer wrote for The Sun: “The club is still a mess and one good performance doesn’t change that.”Five goals for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired is obviously a positive — but you can’t get too excited about them beating a newly-promoted team who are battling relegation.”And let’s be clear, it’s no coincidence that the board at United sacked Jose Mourinho with a favourable run of fixtures on the horizon.”The timing is no shock as they would have wanted to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the best possible chance of getting off to a good start.”Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth and Newcastle is a great run for a new manager — it would have been very different if they had the likes of Chelsea or Tottenham coming up.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

The goalkeeper committed to the club for another four years on Monday.And Solskjaer was always confident the Spaniard would stay at Old Trafford.”Most of the time we get to keep the ones we want to keep,” said Solskjaer.”The more I got to listen and speak to David, I was pretty confident we were going to make it.”David is delighted.

Healthier Lifestyles Urged to Prevent Non – Communicable Diseases

first_imgStory Highlights Health Minister is urging increased engagement by persons in healthy lifestyles One out of six deaths is due to NCDs NCDs account for a significant percentage of deaths currently occurring in Jamaica Health Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, is urging increased engagement by persons in healthy lifestyles which he contends can significantly reduce the incidence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).His call comes against the background of data suggesting that NCDs account for a significant percentage of deaths currently occurring in Jamaica. Statistics indicate that approximately one out of six deaths is due to NCDs, mainly cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer.Health statistics for 2009 showed that diseases of the circulatory and respiratory systems, endocrine and metabolic diseases, and cancer, accounted for approximately 60 per cent of deaths among men, and 75 per cent among women, that year.Data also shows that the cost to administer medical treatment for some NCDs, like cancer, averages as much as $3.6 million.Speaking at Friday’s (September 6) launch of Caribbean Wellness Day 2013, at the Rooms on the Beach Resort, in Ocho Rios, St. Ann, Dr. Ferguson cited tobacco use, alcohol abuse, unhealthy diets, and physical inactivity as the four main behavioural risk factors contributing to the high incidence of NCDs. These, he contended, “largely, are in our individual control.”“The excessive use of alcohol and tobacco smoking is helping to drive this increasing burden of diseases. Move towards having a low-salt, low fat diet, and increase fruits and vegetables intake. Become more physically active, reduce your alcohol consumption, and quit smoking tobacco products,” he urged.The Health Minister pointed out that life expectancy in most Caribbean countries, including Jamaica, is comparable to most developed countries, such as the United States and Canada.“Unfortunately, we are also seeing a higher disease burden as regards to obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and some cancers, such as that of the prostate and cervix. We can, together, improve the situation. as eight per cent of heart diseases and diabetes, and 40 per cent of cancers are preventable,” he contended.Activities commemorating Caribbean Wellness Day 2013 are slated for Saturday, September 14, at the Ocean Village Shopping Centre, Ocho Rios, St. Ann.last_img read more

Softball Ohio State downs Wright State 141 in home opener

OSU softball players during a game against Penn State on April 6 at Buckeye Field. Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe No. 25 Ohio State softball team (19-7) played in Columbus on Wednesday for the first time this season after a 25-game road stretch and gave the home fans something to cheer about, downing Wright State 14-1 in five innings.“Words can’t explain how excited I was since I woke up this morning, knowing today was the home opener,” said sophomore first baseman Alex Vargas.Wright State took a quick 1-0 lead in the first after a wild pitch from OSU junior pitcher Morgan Ray scored Macey Gunther, but it was all Buckeyes from that point, thanks to a huge first inning highlighted by a grand slam from senior right fielder Alex Bayne.“We were ready to perform for (our fans),” Vargas said. “For us to keep our composure — especially on a big day like this — and perform, hit and score run after run after run, I think that just shows that we care to do well for our fans.”The Buckeyes scored nine runs on five hits in the first, forcing two pitching changes in the inning. Sophomore second baseman Emily Clark hit a two-RBI double while senior third baseman Anna Kirk, sophomore shortstop Lilli Piper and junior first baseman Ashley Goodman each had an RBI, giving OSU a 9-1 lead.“We were spraying the ball around the field, so it wasn’t like we were doing one thing,” said OSU coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly. “Emily Clark hitting the ball down the corner (to right field) and then (Alex) Bayne hitting a ball down left field — it’s just nice to see them hitting the ball where it’s pitched not trying to do too much and everyone chipping in.”The Buckeye lead grew in the third as OSU pushed across five insurance runs. Piper hit a two-RBI single while Clark hit a three-run home run to left center field to extend OSU’s lead to 14-1 after three innings.The big lead allowed the Buckeyes to empty their bench a bit in the later innings. OSU made six substitutions in the field, allowing some bench players to participate in the home opener, which meant just as much to the starters as it did the substitutes, Kovach Schoenly said.“The starters work side by side on the field with them in practice every day so they know how hard they work and it means a lot to them to see their teammates have success,” she said. “I don’t think there’s one starter that wouldn’t hand their bat over to give someone else a chance to be a part of it.”The Buckeyes return to Big Ten action on Friday when they begin a three-game home series with Rutgers (8-21) as they look to improve upon their 3-0 conference record. read more
