Half-time: QPR 0 Man City 0

first_imgManchester City dominated the first half at a rain-swept Loftus Road.Pablo Zabaleta almost gave them the lead when he headed David Silva’s cross against the bar.Julio Cesar, who has looked uncertain in the QPR goal, was also grateful to see Javi Garcia’s wind-assisted 35-yarder flash just wide.Rangers, with Fabio on the right of midfield and Loic Remy making his home debut, struggled to create chances before a quick counter-attack brought Joe Hart into action six minutes before the break.The England keeper raced from his line and produced a fine stop to deny Adel Taarabt after the Moroccan had skipped away from Gael Clichy.Cesar then atoned for some shaky moments by diving to his right to push away a shot from Gareth Barry.R’s boss Harry Redknapp named two goalkeepers – Rob Green and Brian Murphy – among his substitutes.QPR (4-1-4-1): Cesar; Onuoha, Nelsen, Hill, Traore; Derry; Fabio, Mbia, Granero, Taarabt; Remy.Subs: Green, Park, Ben Haim, Zamora, Murphy, Faurlin, Bothroyd.Click here for our QPR v Man City 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Village B&Bs for 2010 visitors

first_img3 January 2008Construction of bed-and-breakfast facilities has begun in the rural hinterland of South Africa’s Limpopo province in preparation for expected visitors during the 2010 Fifa World Cup, as well as to provide rural communities with access to sustainable income through tourism activites.The project, funded through a €1.7-million donation (about R15-million) from Irish Aid, is under way in the Muhlava, Sekgopo and Thabina villages outside Tzaneen in the Mopani district municipality.The site where these accommodation establishments are being constructed is about 30 minutes’ drive from Polokwane, a town which will host some World Cup matches.The project is expected to be completed by December this year.Project Manager Elvis Ntlwane said the project was one of the municipality’s local economic development projects, which seek to improve the livelihood of poor communities through tourism.The project has already created short-term jobs for more than 300 builders and labourers, including women and disabled people.“Cultural exhibition centres will also be built where crafters, dancers and story-tellers can showcase their skills and products,” Ntlwane said, adding that the project aimed to cater for the 2010 World Cup and beyond.Tour guide centres have already been established in the local municipalities of Greater Tzaneen, Greater Letaba, Greater Giyani, Ba-Phalaborwa and Maruleng to promote the district as a tourist destination.The rural district boasts some famous natural and cultural tourist attractions, including the home of South Africa’s most famous “mystic”, Rain Queen Modjadji, outside Modjadjiskloof.The area also has the largest concentration of a single cycad species in the world, while the district’s eastern-most town, Phalaborwa, is one of the busiest entrances to the world-famous Kruger National Park.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

New Study Paints iPhone Owners as Materialistic, Fickle Egomaniacs

first_imgsarah perez Taken on their own, it’s hard to say whether these stats are indicative of anything about iPhone owners specifically, or if they could apply to any group of smartphone-owning mobile users. That’s why the report compares the iPhone and Blackberry owners on each topic. When studied this way, iPhone owners beat Blackberry owners in every category where “winning” is actually the equivalent of being a materialistic, flaky, fickle dolt…well, at least in our opinion. To spin the findings even further in Blackberry’s favor, one of the questions involved asking the mobile users how they “see” themselves. 40% of the iPhone owners claimed they were an “intellectual” while only 36% of Blackberry users said the same. Propped up against the other results, it’s an almost laughable claim.Don’t Buy this HypeClearly, this survey wasn’t meant to be an in-depth examination of the smartphone toting population – in fact, it’s more likely just a publicity stunt to generate talk about Retrevo. Given the questions asked, there were bound to be some “rather interesting” findings, no matter how the respondents answered. And by keeping the sample size to a low number – only 445 individuals – there’s no guarantee that these folks are representative of the population at large in any way. After all, who signs up for online surveys anyway? While the panel of participants was distributed across gender, age, income and location in the U.S., what’s undisclosed is how the questions were asked – was this done scientifically or were they leading questions designed to generate these sorts of results?  We’d bet on the latter. Still, you have to wonder if there isn’t a tiny bit of truth hiding in these numbers somewhere. Could it be that those who buy Apple’s smartphone are a little more wrapped up in mobile life than those whose smartphone purchase probably had more to do with accessing company email in a timely fashion? That may be possible, but that wouldn’t exactly be an incredible reveal if so, now would it? Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Apple#Features#NYT#Trends#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Are iPhone users really that bad? We’re not buying it. It’s odd that a consumer electronics shopping site would sponsor a study that paints such a lousy picture of iPhone owners, but that’s exactly what Retrevo.com has done. For whatever reason, the results of their recent report on smartphone owners in the U.S. has returned some unflattering figures about those who own Apple’s ubiquitous handheld, the iPhone, as compared to the more business-minded folks who choose a Blackberry instead. According to this study, iPhone owners are more likely to judge potential partners based on their gadgets and not their college degree, handle breakups via email or text, and yet somehow still think of themselves as “intellectuals” despite the fact that they spend more time than their counterparts texting, watching videos, and visiting adult sites on their phones. Really?If you’re an iPhone owner yourself, you’re probably going to be taken a bit aback by these findings. For example, the study claims that “cool gadgets” make a person three times more attractive to an iPhone owner than a college degree. Meanwhile “old” gadgets are a turnoff to one in three iPhone users. And yet, if that person spends a little too much time with said gadgets, one in four iPhone owners will break up with them. One in three will do it via email or text message.last_img read more

How To Watch The U.S. Presidential Debates Online – Updated

first_imgTuesday night is the second of three debates leading up to next month’s U.S. presidential election. As Mitt Romney and Barack Obama verbally duke it out in a townhall-style forum, your options for tuning in are greater than ever before. Much has changed in the last four years. In 2008, watching the debates online without a cable subscription involved streaming them from a clunky player on CNN’s website, which could kinda-sorta be full-screened to fit onto your television, if you were so ambitious as to plug your laptop into your HDTV. Good news: This year, things are much easier. (And not just for watching online, but also for interacting with other political junkies.) Just as it did on October 3, tonight and on October 22, CNN will stream the presidential debates between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney live on its website. In a new interactive twist for this campaign, the network’s Web interface allows viewers to select specific clips from the debates and share them over Facebook and Twitter. CNN’s livestreams are available on many of the connected gadgets we’ve all spent the last four years purchasing. Most live feeds in CNN’s mobile apps require a cable subscription to access, but the debates are freely available on iPads, iPhones and Android devices. See also: How To Participate In The Presidential DebatesCNN isn’t the only source streaming the debates online. Huffington Post is using its new HuffPost Live platform to act as an interactive hub for both watching and discussing the debates between Obama and Romney. The Washington Post, CBS News (via UStream), PBS Newshour (via Ustream) and Fox News are just a few of the other outlets that will be livestreaming the debate tonight.Meanwhile, YouTube’s Election Hub is offering every presidential and vice presidential debate live, as well as additional coverage and commentary from media partners as diverse as ABC News, Al Jazeera and Buzzfeed. Back on their own sites, partners like ABC, CBS, Politico, and Univision will be streaming the debates live as well. The Wall Street Journal will do the same through its WSJ Live apps for iOS, Android, Boxee, Apple TV and a number of Internet-connected HDTVs on the market.   If you’re hosting a debate-watching party or simply prefer to sit in front of a big screen, you can always plug your laptop into an HDVT using VGA, HDMI or any other compatible cable. But sleeker solutions have emerged in the last few years. Xbox Live subscribers have access to an interactive feed of the debates, although plenty of other free options exist. If you happen to own an Apple TV streaming box, you can AirPlay any iOS-friendly or Web-based streams (presuming you’re running Mountain Lion) directly to your television.  john paul titlow Tags:#politics#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Pirate Bay Launches PirateBrowser On Maiden Voyage

first_imgbrian proffitt To mark the scurrilous website’s tenth anniversary, the Pirate Bay team has launched PirateBrowser, a re-branded version of Firefox intended to allow users to circumvent censorship for many websites—especially The Pirate Bay itself.According to the main PirateBrowser page, “PirateBrowser is a bundle package of the Tor client (Vidalia), FireFox Portable browser (with foxyproxy addon) and some custom configs that allows you to circumvent censorship that certain countries such as Iran, North Korea, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Italy and Ireland impose onto their citizens.”The use of Tor, a network of sites that anonymizes web traffic by routing requests for content through computers within the network, is particularly interesting. But no one should use the PirateBrowser thinking it will make them anonymous. PirateBrowser simply enables users to bypass any limitations on sites that might be imposed upon them by their Internet provider. Thus, if your ISP was blocking you from, oh, say, the Pirate Bay website, this browser would have another system on the Tor network serve up the site’s pages to you. The browser is pre-loaded with bookmarks for commonly blocked sites such as Bitsnoop, EZTV, H33t and KickassTorrents.The browser itself is so far only available on Windows for now, though TorrentFreak is reporting that Mac and Linux versions are on the way soon. The Pirate Bay teams members have some additional ideas about how to prevent sites like theirs from being blocked.The Pirate Bay team informs TorrentFreak that ‘PirateBrowser’ is just the first step in their efforts to fight web censorship. They are also working on a special BitTorrent-powered browser, which lets users store and distribute The Pirate Bay and other websites on their own.In theory, this will allow sites to exist and update even without having a public facing website. As a result, it will be virtually impossible to block or shut them down.The Pirate Bay’s efforts are, of course, self-serving, and will go a long way for keeping the torrent file site accessible to many for the foreseeable future. But there is also a thread of truth in their claims that the mere availability of software packages like this will improve access for many users.Many, but not all. Even using Tor and virtual private network software for anonymous surfing carries its own risks in truly oppressive regimes. While packets of data within such networks are encrypted and anonymous, Internet service providers are still aware you are using VPN or Tor, and in some countries that may be enough to bring the authorities knocking on your door.Image courtesy James Losey, via Creative Commons 2.0 license Why You Love Online Quizzes How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?

Introduction to MFLNMC “Expert Advice” Series

first_imgWelcome to the new Military Caregiving Expert Advice series. Our caregiving team is rolling out with a new blog series entitled, Expert Advice, where we provide monthly advice from subject matter experts on issues surrounding military caregiving for service providers and families. We take questions and concerns from military helping professionals and families and provide the necessary feedback from credible experts in the field of study.  Whether you are a provider or a caregiver, what questions do you have? We want to hear from you.  (Type your response in the comments section of this article.)Expert Advice in Child PsychiatryTo kick off our new series, we focus on issues surrounding caregiving and special needs within the military.  In a recent professional development training on ADHD, Anxiety, and Autism: Practical Approaches to Child Psychiatry service providers and families learned about practical ways parents and caregivers can help manage these disorders, while reconnecting with the fun of parenting. Below we highlight a question from an audience member and expert advice from a board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist.Question: Does general anxiety ever get misdiagnosed as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)? Advice: Anxiety is often misdiagnosed as ADD which is why the interview process (for diagnosing Anxiety and ADD) is so important. There are many times children come in having trouble with concentration, which is part of the diagnosis and criteria for both anxiety and ADD. The problem arises with the treatment of ADD because there are certain treatments that might actually make the anxiety worse. It is very important that we are careful to make sure we have the right diagnosis.Expert: Brian Dixon, M.D., Executive Director of Progressive Psychiatry, P.A. and Board Certified Child and Adolescent PsychiatristHave a question for our military caregiving team?

Field Talk: A Q&A with Providers Supporting Military Families

first_imgDiPietro-Wells, R. (2015). Field Talk: A Q&AField Talk is a monthly blog post sharing the voices of early childhood providers who serve or have served military families of young children with disabilities (birth to 5 years old).  We hope you find it to be educational, personable, and encouraging.This month we talked with Nicole Withrow PhD, MS, RDN.  Dr. Withrow is an Assistant Professor/Dietetic Internship Coordinator at the University of Northern Colorado and a Pediatric Clinical Registered Dietitian Nutritionist at Colorado Children’s Hospital.  This interview has been edited for length and clarity.Describe your current role. I am an Assistant Professor and Dietetic Internship Coordinator for the University of Northern Colorado. I develop and maintain courses for graduate and undergraduate students. Currently, I have 30 dietetic interns nationwide who are completing an accredited dietetic internship. The internship is accredited through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and each intern must complete 1200 supervised practice hours. Along with teaching responsibilities and maintaining an internship, I am involved in conducting research in Autism Spectrum Disorders.Recently, I created the Sensory Processing, Aberrant Mealtime, Motor, Inventory for Eating (SAMIE). It is a screening inventory for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and will be used in the community, hospitals, private practices, and residential facilities. I am currently in the copyright and publication process with this inventory and hope to have that completed within the next 3-6 months. In addition to my University position, I am a consultant for the Center for Discovery, a residential program in New York for individuals with disabilities, and a pediatric clinical dietitian at the Colorado Children’s Hospital for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.What’s your favorite part of your current job? I absolutely love having opportunities to wear several hats in the field of nutrition. I thrive when I am educating individuals and helping minimize the struggles of families and individuals due to a disability, specifically Autism Spectrum Disorders. I also enjoy conducting research.What “insider” tips or advice do you have for service providers working with military families who have young children with disabilities?I would suggest collaborating with the team of providers who are treating the child. I would say less is more when it comes to recommendations and if families are working with an Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Pathologist and/or behavioral therapist they should work to make goals that complement each other’s specialty area.If you could change or improve one thing for military families with young children with disabilities, what would it be?I would like screening of problematic eating behaviors to occur earlier since they appear to be long-standing and without prior diagnosis and treatment they could have long-term health consequences.What are some strategies or resources useful in supporting a family whose child has a limited repertoire of food? One of the most important things to remember is that there can be numerous reasons a child prefers a limited variety of foods and understanding them, and treating them will help with increasing the variety of foods that a child will accept and consume. Reasons a child may struggle with accepting new foods are: sensory processing impairments, oral motor, core deficits of an ASD (rigidity/need for things to be the same), anxiety, gastrointestinal dysfunction and dental caries (cavities).When introducing a new food, be mindful that it may take more than 10 exposures of a bite size of food before a child looks, licks, touches, or tastes the food item. Only serve a bite size so that he/she is not overwhelmed by the quantity and shuts down, immediately. If a child looks, licks, touches, tastes the food item, positively reinforce him/her with verbal praise. Then continue to offer the food and increase the quantity slowly.Another tip is to introduce “like/similar” foods. For example, if a child likes McDonald’s chicken nuggets, purchase a bag of frozen nuggets and serve one every time you serve a McDonald’s chicken nugget. Also, pair language with food, “same but different.”How do you balance nutritional needs given a child’s food tendencies and preferences? What strategies can a provider use to help a parent ensure their child’s nutritional needs are being met in such instances? (For example, a child who will only eat crunchy foods, or foods at a very hot temperature)This is difficult since increasing a food repertoire takes time. I recommend a multivitamin in order to decrease risk of Vitamins C and D, and as well as iron deficiencies. If your child drinks juice, be mindful to purchase fortified juices (i.e., orange juice that has calcium and Vitamin D added to it). If your child only eats crunchy foods then you can bake foods, offer raw fruits/vegetables, or freeze fruits/vegetables – be creative! Again, if your child prefers only a few food items continue offering a new bite size food item with them.What are some strategies that providers can use to help families introduce new foods that are outside of a child’s preference? For example, helping a family introduce new foods when their child will only eat a food of a particular color or texture.Start with a food history and you may notice that at age 1-2 the child ate more foods. Bring those back into their diets, but only a bite size and with repeated exposures. If your child only eats a particular color/temperature/texture then start there and build in different types of foods, but a bite size. Research illustrates that if a child does not get help for food selectivity before the age of 8 then it is more difficult to treat and nutritional risk may become an issue. If a child will only eat chewy foods then offer a gummy vitamin, if they only eat crunchy foods then offer a Flintstone crunchy multivitamin, if they do not eat them right away offer the vitamin every day at breakfast, lunch or dinner. You may also want to add a calcium and Vitamin D supplement in a powder form called Dari Free. You can order it online through Vance’s Foods and it can be mixed into a food or beverage – it has no taste!Could you please talk about food chaining and how to implement it?Food chaining is a type of feeding/eating intervention that assists in expanding an individual’s food repertoire. This process builds upon a preferred food and based on the individual. One may also need to start with a similar color/texture/type, depending on the primary reason for food selectivity. For example: A child prefers McDonalds french fries, therefore start with those while also purchasing a bag of frozen shoestring fries. Prepare a couple of frozen shoestring fries and serve them with the preferred food. Once the child tolerates them, increase the quantity of the prepared frozen shoestring fries and reduce the McDonald’s fries. This process should be repeated by introducing another type of frozen fry (waffle/steak cut/curly/fresh potato wedges). Once the child is eating a variety of fries, the end goal is a baked potato. After the baked potato is well received, introduce a sweet potato.Are there certain vitamins or minerals you have found that improve the symptoms of autism?There is not a lot of evidence-based research to support many of the supplements that are currently being used to remediate symptoms of an ASD. However, more research is being done. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as a mild mood stabilizer and has a role in muscle function and the immune system. Vitamin D is also needed to assist in the absorption of calcium. I often recommend supplementing with this vitamin, especially if the child is on a gluten and casein free diet.Another supplement I often recommend is a multivitamin, especially if an individual is food selective or a “picky eater” and has been for quite some time. Vitamin C deficiency (scurvy) has been diagnosed in individuals with developmental disabilities who have food selectivity. This can be avoided with a multivitamin while working on increasing the individual’s food repertoire.Flavored cod liver oil is often used to aid in immune function and cognitive function, plus it has anti-inflammatory properties.Are there any studies evaluating the effectiveness of special diets (i.e. gluten free, casein free, etc.)? Can you expand on or speak to them? There are minimal double-blinded trials, the gold standard for gluten and casein free, so many of the results are anecdotal. There is one- 12-week double-blinded gluten free, casein free (GFCF) trial with a crossover at the conclusion of 6 weeks. n= 15 individuals w/ASD (ages 2-16)Behavioral assessments were done at baseline, weeks 6 and 12, and urinary peptides screened at weeks 1, 3, 6, 9, 12. The results illustrated no significant differences. However, 9 of the15 parents reported that they would continue the GFCF diet (Elder, 2006).However, even with limited research, the gluten and casein free diet is the most popular dietary intervention to treat individuals with ASD (Levy & Hyman, 2003). The diet is popular due to the belief in its safety, non invasiveness, healthiness, and the anecdotal reports of improvements in symptoms of children with ASD.According to the Autism Research Institute’s recent survey of 2208 parents regarding the gluten and casein free diet, 65% of parents reported subjective improvements in children’s autism symptoms (decrease in self-stimulatory behaviors-flapping, rocking), maladaptive behaviors, GI improvements seen, and an increase in communication (use of words).For parents who do choose a GFCF diet, it seems much harder to get adequate nutrition for the child. What do you suggest?” It is not as difficult to consume an adequate diet on a GFCF today due to several fortified foods (i.e., breakfast cereals, juices, rice/soy milk, gf breads/waffles, etc). I would recommend adding a multivitamin and calcium supplement with a Vitamin D supplement if the child is food selective.Another resource regarding feeding concerns and nutrition in children with autism spectrum disorders can be found in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders [1].  This article was recently discussed here.[1]  Sharp, W.

The Hustler’s Playbook: What A Hustler Is

first_imgThe word “hustler” sometimes has a negative connotation. Some people believe that a “hustler” is someone who is trying to take advantage of them, that they are “being hustled.” That’s not what it means here. Here the connotation is nothing but positive.A hustler is someone who knows what they want and is willing to take action to get it. They have a very strong bias for action.Hustlers are inherently impatient. They are averse to waiting for things to come their way.A hustler is a self-starter. No one has to tell them what to do. They don’t need to be motivated or inspired because they have a big enough reason “why” already burning inside them.A hustler is determined beyond anything a non-hustler can imagine. They aren’t put off by their failures, and they don’t give up on their dreams. When one thing doesn’t work, they keep trying things until they figure out how to get the result they need.A hustler is a maverick. They’re difficult to manage because they color outside the lines. They want the outcome, even if it means that the method for achieving it is unconventional.Hustlers don’t punch a clock. They don’t count the hours they work, they count the outcomes they produce. Hustlers don’t hit the snooze button either.A hustler builds relationships. They need friends, allies, and fellow hustlers to help them get things done. They build and work the hustler network. They surround themselves with other hustlers.Hustlers want things. They don’t feel bad about wanting a nice car, a nice house, or nice clothes. They know that it is their right to have those things when they’ve earned them, when they deserve them.Hustlers have a bigger vision of themselves. They believe they are capable of great things. They know that they have room to grow and, no matter how successful they are, they still see a lot of runway in front of them.Hustlers aren’t selfish or self-oriented. They know that the greater outcomes they want are only found through creating greater value for more people. They only earn what they are worth, and they increase that worth all of the time.There you go, hustler.last_img read more
