first_img 137 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! LifestyleRelationships Five mistakes women make when trying to find Mr. Right. by: – April 14, 2011 Tweetcenter_img Share Share The bar scene, speed dating, online dating. If you’re single and looking for a man, you have probably tried all of these things.After a while, it can seem as if all the good guys are taken and you are doomed to a life of microwave meals for one and reading sappy novels for a romance fix.The longer you are single, the more impossible you may think it is to find the right man. Before you give up forever, make sure that you aren’t making mistakes in your approach to finding Mr. Right.Creating the “perfect” man who doesn’t existThis is one of the most common reasons women remain single. There is absolutely nothing wrong with knowing what you want in a guy, but if you have got your heart set on a perfect man you will be sorely disappointed. You don’t have to lower your standards but you must be realistic. Remember that everyone is flawed, and focus on the things you like about a potential partner instead of the things you don’t.Acting as if you are desperateDo you throw yourself at every man who looks at you? If so, you could be giving the impression that you will settle for anyone. Another mistake you may be making is spending a lot of time on your Facebook profile, complaining about how you wish you had a boyfriend. Just because you are among friends, it doesn’t mean there isn’t someone on your friends list who might be interested in you. Unfortunately, he will run a mile if he thinks that you are simply looking for “a” man rather than “the” man.Trying to rush things alongIt’s a great feeling when you meet a wonderful guy after a long search. However, if you plan on keeping him, it is important to remember to take things slowly. Don’t let your eagerness to settle down ruin what could have been an amazing relationship. Trying to move yourself into his apartment or discussing having children when you have only been dating for a month will only scare him away.Not realizing your own self worthYou have probably heard this a thousand times, but you won’t find a guy who sees how fantastic you are if you can’t see it yourself. Don’t let being single damage your self-esteem because it won’t make the situation any better.Have you ever noticed that when you have a boyfriend, other men start to take an interest in you? It isn’t because they want what they can’t have, it’s because you look happy and secure in yourself. Men are always attracted to women who are comfortable with who they are.Being too worried about your single statusBelieve me, I am familiar with the panic of being single. Up until a few months ago, I was in the exact same position. It wasn’t until I calmed down and realized that stressing about not having a boyfriend wouldn’t make me find one any faster, that Mr. Right came along. I am not a believer that you will find a boyfriend if you stop looking. But if you stop worrying about it, it is a lot easier because you aren’t pinning your hopes on the first guy who looks your way.There is no escaping it –finding Mr. Right is hard work. But once you relax and learn to appreciate who you are and what you already have, your ideal man will find his way to you. Accept that it won’t happen overnight, but make small changes and you will soon find yourself inundated with offers from eligible bachelors!By Karen SandersYahoo Shinelast_img read more

PSG show character and personality in crushing Real – Tuchel

first_imgRelatedPosts Bale completes Tottenham return from Real Madrid Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Tottenham re-signs Bale on loan Paris St Germain’s crushing of Real Madrid in their Champions League opener was not a warning to their European rivals – it was more a self-confidence booster on the French side’s return to the biggest stage after another humiliation. PSG suffered an embarrassing last-16 exit against a low-key Manchester United following a shock 3-1 home defeat last season, and on Wednesday, they had a point to prove to themselves. While a 3-0 home win against the 13-time European champions in Group A will not wipe off three consecutive last-16 eliminations, the Parc des Princes game showed that PSG have grown as a squad. Thomas Tuchel’s side were without their magic trio of Kylian Mbappe, Edison Cavani – both injured – and Neymar, who was suspended, yet they produced a collective performance to be remembered. Angel Di Maria showed his class and flair with a brace, helped by the huge work of midfielders Marco Verratti, Marquinhos and Idrissa Gueye, with the Senegalese proving his worth after joining from Everton during the close season. “He’s a machine. He’s the type of player we were missing, he never stops running.” Gueye provided the midfield with much-needed stamina since Blaise Matuidi left for Juventus in 2017, proving essential with defensive tackles and impressive bursts going forward. With the ‘MCN’ trio out, Argentine striker Mauro Icardi, loaned from Inter Milan, harassed the Real Madrid defense and created space for Di Maria while keeper Keylor Navas, who joined from Real, is expected to give the defence some peace of mind. “We have a great team, with more personality now,” said Tuchel. PSG, however, are well aware that Group stage wins will mean nothing when the knockout phase comes in the winter. In 2017, they beat Bayern 3-0 in the Group phase and tamed Liverpool 2-1 also in the Group phase last year, but those victories were followed by early exits. The way they beat Real on Wednesday, however, was far more convincing. “We need to always play like we did, with character and personality. With aggressiveness, too,” said centre back Thiago Silva. “Mbappe, Cavani and Neymar are phenomenons, but we have a solid squad of 25 players. Two of them were injured and one was suspended but what the other showed was brilliant”.Tags: PSGReal MadridThomas Tuchellast_img read more

Dodgers following pattern with innings limits for young pitchers

first_imgRoss Stripling didn’t allow a hit for 7 1/3 innings in his major league debut in April. He was removed after throwing his 100th pitch. Stripling, in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery, went to extended spring training in May to preserve his innings.Jose De Leon, a 23-year-old pitcher currently with Oklahoma City, spent the first month of the season in extended spring training. One hundred pitches seems to be the ceiling at Double-A Tulsa; no one has cracked it in a game this season. At advanced Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, 22-year-old pitching prospect Josh Sborz is limited to four innings per start for the remainder of the season. The low Single-A Great Lakes Loons recently used four pitchers in a game, none of whom threw less than two or more than three innings.Willie Calhoun, a second baseman at Double-A Tulsa, acknowledged he’s had some are-we-even-trying-to-win-the-game thoughts too.“A little bit,” he said, “but I try to let (manager Ryan) Garko take care of that. I trust him — which is good.”Around baseball, the mandate to protect young pitchers’ arms didn’t happen overnight.Four years ago, Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg was 23 years old and pitching his first full season following Tommy John surgery. Though healthy, Strasburg never appeared in a game after Sept. 7, having pitched 159 1/3 innings to that point in the season.That was a particularly tough pill to swallow for the 2012 Nationals, who ultimately lost a five-game Division Series to the St. Louis Cardinals with Strasburg on the bench. Speaking at the All-Star Game in San Diego this week, Strasburg admits it “took a few years” for him to make peace with the decision.“At the time I was pretty frustrated,” he said. “Looking back on it now, with the direction the organization’s going, how it’s built for the long haul, I think it’s kind of a tough call — strike when the iron’s hot or potentially deal with the consequences of it?”Ideally, limiting the workloads of Stripling, Urias, De Leon and others now will avoid a Strasburg-like scenario later. Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said there is no “blanket rule” for usage that applies to every pitcher in the organization, but the end result is the same: Stripling, Urias and De Leon might be available to pitch for the Dodgers in September and October, if needed. On the other end of the spectrum are those who deride lighter workloads as harmful and overprotective. In a March interview, Hall of Famer pitcher Goose Gossage claimed that pitch-count limits have led directly to injuries. “The first thing a pitcher does when he comes off the mound is ask: ‘How many pitches do I have?’ If I had asked that f—ing question, they would have said: ‘Son, get your ass out there on that mound. If you get tired, we’ll come and get you’,” Gossage told ESPN.This philosophy has fallen out of favor. In Gossage’s last full season, 1993, eight pitchers threw a total of 250 innings or more. In the last 10 years combined, only three pitchers have reached the 250-inning mark: Justin Verlander (2011), Roy Halladay (2010) and C.C. Sabathia (2008).Friedman believes the egg came before the chicken — that is, the injuries led to innings limits, not the other way around.“A lot of the pitch counts and innings limits were born out of the increase in arm injuries,” he said. “We understood and appreciated all that we don’t know. Teams tend to err on the side of caution.”Even so, Friedman insists he doesn’t intend to shatter the classic model of the “staff workhorse.”“You can definitely build guys up in a methodical way to put 200 to 250 innings on their body,” he said.What will that method look like? The answer is playing out across the minor leagues right now.An underrated obstacle to this process — and a major flaw in Gossage’s theory — is that pitchers who throw more innings at a younger age can thwart any team’s best efforts. By the time a pitcher is drafted (typically between the ages of 17 and 22), there’s no telling how many innings he’s thrown, or whether his body was strong enough to withstand the workload. A pitcher can be run into the ground before a major league organization prescribes its innings limit.Urias is special in this regard, too. The Dodgers have been able to control his workload since his age-16 season — that’s how young Urias was when he threw his first pitch for Great Lakes. He threw 54 1/3, 87 2/3 and 80 1/3 innings his first three professional seasons, not including spring training games.Earlier this week, the National Federation of State High School Associations told members (including California) to adopt a rule regulating the number of pitches a high school pitcher can throw in a game. Maybe the rules regarding pitcher workload will trickle up, too.Scott Boras, Urias’ agent, has an idea of what that might look like.“I think we’re going to have to develop in this business a way to have a pitcher on the roster who can throw 120 innings his first year, 150 the next year, and then get him up to where he can throw 180,” Boras said. “To do that we need a 26th man. Someone has to cover those innings. I think we’re going to find that it’s economically advisable — and great for the development of the young players — to have great talent in the big leagues at a young age but understand you can only use it within limits.” Urias’ usage might be the most prominent example of an evolving trend, one with broad implications — not just for the Dodgers’ top prospect but his teammates, other minor league prospects, and even the future of major league pitching staffs.Jharel Cotton has spent the entire 2016 season on the Oklahoma City roster. Speaking at the Futures Game last weekend in San Diego, he said that watching Urias pitch “is a fun sight to see.” Sometimes that makes Urias’ innings limit difficult to accept.Cotton was asked if he ever wonders whether the Dodgers are trying to win when Urias is yanked in the middle of a shutout. He paused.“I’m so used to hearing that he’s a young guy, 19 years old in Triple-A, I guess I’m stuck on that,” Cotton said. “The kid’s going to be around for a long time. I think it’s going to be a big, long career as a big leaguer. I guess they’re trying to protect him. I don’t know.”It isn’t just Urias. The Dodgers use some variation on an innings or pitches limit at every level of the organization. The Oklahoma City Dodgers were leading the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, 1-0, after six innings of their Pacific Coast League game on May 9. Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias was firmly in command, scattering four hits and three walks in the thin Rocky Mountain air.Urias has usually dominated in Triple-A this year, but this game was special. Security Service Field in Colorado Springs sits at 6,531 feet above sea level, believed to be the highest elevation of any professional ballpark in the United States. In a place where earned-run averages go to die, Urias reached a new height — literally and figuratively.Once Urias was out, the Sky Sox scored seven runs in the seventh inning to put the game out of reach. Oklahoma City lost 7-3. For the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate, this situation was hardly unique.Five times this season Urias has been removed from a shutout with no more than six innings or 85 pitches on his ledger. The 19-year-old left-hander, ever the good soldier, never complains about his workload restriction. He is currently parked in the Oklahoma City bullpen as the Dodgers hope to preserve his remaining innings for later in the season. (He’s currently up to 78 1/3.)center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Letter to the editor: Hey, USD 353 board. How about a bathroom on 9th Street?

first_imgEditor’s Note: This week I’m turning over the Sunday blog to Richard Rayl. I couldn’t top this letter below…To the board members of Wellington District 353:I must say, I’m pretty irritated about the 9th street ball facility. I go there to watch my grandson play ball and enjoy watching all the kids play, but I don’t know what you as board members are thinking,Why in God’s name can’t you the members have a porter potty and that facility?I think it’s ridiculous that some of the people have to get in their cars and go somewhere else to go to the restroom!There is always a good crowd there supporting the boys playing ball. I can just imagine when all the out of town team’s come to Wellington to play ball at 9th street, They will all probably start bringing a 5 gallon bucket so they can take a leak in the dugout!   I hope all you board members of Wellington School District 353 are very proud in not providing proper facilities for the players and the spectators.SincerelyRichard Rayl Close Forgot password?

Although I’m sure tennis does not draw the spectators that baseball does so that probably never entered anyone thought process. I would not disagree that a bathroom facility of some sort should be provided. The City of Wellington does provide a portable bathroom at the Wellington skatepark and many of the tennis players/spectators use that port-a-pot. I have had to use the bathroom at sporting events and had to do a little walking to get there so if I have to go I would say….if u need to go…there is a portable bathroom not far from the ball field in 9th Street.

Everything there was done by volunteers. We have probably the best JV facility in the area and we are complaining about a restroom. Go to Rosé Hill and you have to walk about 1/2 a mile to the restrooms. Eldorado you have to walk about the same distance to the school the walk through the hallways to find one if the building is open. Clearwater is at a park. I have been there when their’s are not open. It will cost a lot of money that we do not have. I would think we would appreciate what we have instead of gripe about what is not perfect.
