Leongson (@RLeongsonINQ) March 16, 2018Ravena looked at that fourth quarter as NLEX’s chance to test its resolve  which would be valuable for the squad in the long run as the series turns to a virtual best-of-three.“When they take the lead, they really protect that advantage. And for us to get better, we have to learn how to take care of leads,” he said. “It can’t be that we’ll just get a big lead and eventually falter in the end. If you can build a cushion and make the game better for your team in the end game, you must know how to finish it.”ADVERTISEMENT Team defense key in Road Warriors’ series-tying win As the Road Warriors passed that test with flying colors, Ravena is hoping to see his team sustain the effort when they shoot for the lead in Game 5 on Sunday at Ynares Center in Antipolo.“Hopefully, we carry this momentum,” he said. “The series is tied, it’s a best-of-three and take this one, enjoy and savor it for a bit, go back to the drawing board, a few hours wakeup and practice, because we know that Magnolia will make those adjustments. So hopefully, we’d take care of business on our side.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

The Beverly Hills Diet told dieters to avoid combining carbohydrates and proteins in the same meal and called for eating only fruit for the first 10 days. Mazel who opened a Beverly Hills clinic where she counseled as many as 250 dieters a week, counted herself among her clients. She claimed to have lost 72 pounds and to remaining a “svelte 108,” according to her Web site. The book was a best seller and included celebrity endorsements from actress Linda Gray of “Dallas” and singer Engelbert Humperdinck. Mazel became something of a celebrity and frequent guest on TV talk shows. Even California first lady Maria Shriver admitted she used the diet while trying to break into television when People magazine asked in 2005 how she lost 25 pounds. “I couldn’t get a job, so I went on the Beverly Hills Diet, where you ate watermelon one day and cheesecake the next. It worked,” she said. “That was the last diet I ever went on.” By The Associated Press Judy Mazel, who wrote a 1981 best-seller The Beverly Hills Diet that was praised by celebrities and criticized by nutritionists, has died. She was 63. Mazel died Oct. 12 from peripheral vascular disease at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, said close friend Victoria Marechal. Mazel had been a longtime resident of Pacific Palisades. Mazel, who had no formal training in medicine or nutrition, came up with a theory about food enzymes and the digestive system that she turned into a complicated diet plan. She became interested in weight loss while recovering from a broken leg, reading books on nutrition and eventually studying with a nutritionist for several months. Medical experts, however, called the book fiction, and it made a nutritionists’ list of top 10 classic fad diets.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
