Embed from Getty ImagesChelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about a number of issues at his news conference ahead of Monday’s game against Middlesbrough. Here’s some of what the Italian had to say. Conte on Cesc Fabregas“I think he is playing very well this season. His level is very high, with great commitment, work-rate and behaviour for the whole season.“He is a top player and if he starts the game or comes in during the games I think he is always decisive for us.” On whether he can keep Fabregas happy at the club“I like to underline the concept: I must not keep happy a player – we must win.“I think that my target is to put in the mind a winning mentality – it doesn’t exist to keep the players happy.“I don’t want this, I want players who are ready to fight and put themselves in the team to win together. This is very important.” On reports Diego Costa could move to China“I don’t know. I don’t know about this. I think now it is very important that every single player – every single person who works for Chelsea – to be focused on the present.“The present is very important for us. The present is more important than the future. It is important to be focused, to be concentrated, to prepare in the right way for these five games until the end of the season.“I am not worried about this because I see my players every day and I am seeing the right concentration and focus.“The important thing is our target. Speculation to me is not important.” On Chelsea’s injury concerns“Thibaut Courtois trained today and yesterday. I don’t see a problem about him.“We are struggling with two situations, with David Luiz and N’Golo Kante, but there are three more days before the Middlesbrough game. I have the time to make the best decision about them.” On social media policy“I am a disaster in this situation, with social media. This topic is not simple to face.“I think every person must use it in the right way, with balance. When you use social media and you don’t have the right balance it is always dangerous.“You must use it in the right way. I don’t like to ban something but you have to have the right balance.” On facing Middlesbrough“There are two teams with desperation to find the result. Middlesbrough have to win if they want to stay here (the Premier League) next season. The same for us is that we have to win. For this reason I think Monday will be a good game.”See also:Conte on Pedro, Morata, Wenger’s comments and Chelsea’s search for playersConte on Bakayoko, Hazard, Pedro’s setback and facing SpursConte on Costa, youngsters, Stoke, Zouma and Chelsea’s ‘big challenge’ Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

SAN FRANCISCO — Will Smith must wait five days to find out if he’ll be a major league All-Star for the first time.It’s heady stuff for a 29-year-old left-hander who sat out the 2017 after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his left elbow and is having the best year of his career. Smith is flattered to be considered, but uninterested in the mental gymnastics that go along with it.“It would be a real cool honor, obviously,” Smith said Tuesday before the Giants faced the Colorado Rockies at …

Presumably this implies they won’t wish to season their dishes with Tarter sauce, either. Perhaps, then, their treatise on “How to Serve Man” really was a genuine offer of help, rather than a cookbook.Mark Thompson assures us that the Fermi Paradox means Earthlings “don’t need the ‘Men in Black‘” (Live Science). Men in white, maybe… but don’t assume they are scientists.Mark Mardell (BBC News) is convinced that aliens use Legos. “Life’s building blocks” have been found on Mars, he said, even though NASA’s Astrobiology Magazine admitted the carbon molecules detected are non-biological. Still, the NASA piece used the L-word “life” hopefully five times. (See 5/24/2012 entry also.)New Scientist said that if the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL, due to land this fall) doesn’t find aliens, it’s “No problem, we will look elsewhere.” The search will go on, even though “Astrobiology is an odd science. It largely concerns itself with studying something that may not exist,” the article said. Apparently, existence is not a requirement for science these days. Something else has taken the place of observing things that must exist: “Even so, it [astrobiology] captures the imagination like nothing else.”Live Science offered a quiz, “Mars Myths & Misconceptions.” Partakers may be surprised to learn that Guglielmo Marconi believed he contacted alien signals from Mars in 1921, and that the U.S. Government was seriously listening for radio messages from Mars as late as 1924. The quiz did admit that there is no solid evidence for life on Mars, but neglected to classify any of the current Mars astrobiology claims as myths or misconceptions.These are the people, you realize, who call creationists nuts.
By: Annabelle Shaffer, BS, Master’s candidate in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign As with friendships and romantic relationships, a healthy relationship with food requires thought and effort. What is a healthy relationship with food, you ask? Rather than worrying about your potato’s happiness or your cookie’s frustration, a healthy relationship with food is paying attention to your hunger cues, understanding that eating can be influenced by several factors, and treating food as fuel rather the “good” or “bad”.1, 5 Working to understand and improve your relationship with food can be beneficial to everyone. Below are key principles to be mindful of when making food choices.Listen to your natural cues.From infancy, we have the innate ability to sense our hunger and fullness.2,3 It’ is important to listen to these cues and eat accordingly. Hunger can sound like a lion is growling in your stomach and cause distraction and irritability. If you have eaten sufficient food, but not overeaten, fullness will be a comfortable feeling. Overeating can lead to nausea and abdominal pains. If we gauge hunger on a scale of 1 (feeling starved and without energy) to 10 (feeling extremely full and uncomfortable), we want to eat when we are at 3 or 4 and stop eating when we reach a 6 or 7.2Understand the connections between eating and situational aspects.When a stressful situation hits us, we often turn to food for comfort. Foods, especially our favorite treats, can offer short-term comfort, but will never fix an issue.3, 4 Rather than reaching for food, we want to address the situation head-on. Ask yourself: What emotions am I feeling right now? Can I address those emotions in a non-food way? For example, calling a friend or going for a brisk walk may provide you with some relief. Food is FUEL.Certain foods have more nutritional benefits than others, but all food is fuel. Our body relies on carbohydrates (bread, sugar, grains), proteins (dairy, beans, meats), and fats (avocado, oil, butter) to function. All foods consist of carbohydrates, proteins, and/or fats, thus all food can be used as fuel. When we label a more nutritious option as “good” and a less nutritious option as “bad”, we add unneeded rigidity and stress to our eating.4 Rather than labels, focus on creating a diet full of foods you enjoy and provide necessary nutrients, without excluding any foods.

The path to a second straight French Open final, and a third overall at a major after her title at the U.S. Open in 2017, would seem to be clearing up for Stephens.If she beats the 26th-seeded Konta, then her semifinal opponent will be either 31st-seeded Petra Martic of Croatia or unseeded 19-year-old Marketa Vondrousova, a left-hander from the Czech Republic. Both are playing in the last eight of a major for the first time.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsBut Konta does have big-match experience, having reached Grand Slam semifinals at the Australian Open in 2016 and Wimbledon in 2017.She also has a 2-0 record against Stephens.

The third-seeded Romanian is still in the draw.“We have a long way to go until we get there,” said Stephens, who may face another American.There are three remaining, in the other side of the draw: 14th-seeded Madison Keys, 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova, and 20-year-old Sofia Kenin — who knocked out 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams on Saturday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Catholic schools seek legislated pay hike, too Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport ‘Rebel attack’ no cause for concern-PNP, AFP LATEST STORIES Both those matches were played this year: last month in the rain in Rome, the other on Australian hard courts in Brisbane.“I lost to her in Rome.

I was kind of all over the place.”Stephens was runner-up at Roland Garros last year to Simona Halep.ADVERTISEMENT DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew MOST READ Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Disrespect an issue in Warriors’ narrow NBA Finals escape Sloane Stephens of the U.S. celebrates winning her fourth round match of the French Open tennis tournament against Spain’s Garbine Muguruza in two sets, 6-4, 6-3, at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, Sunday, June 2, 2019.
