Priyanka, Deepika realise their fairytale fantasy at Met Gala

first_imgNew York: Actors Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Deepika Padukone took inspiration from fairytale characters for their 2019 Met Gala red carpet appearance, reminding fans that a little adventure goes a long way in fashion.The two Indian actors interpreted this year’s theme for the event, ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ in their own way. Priyanka, who first met husband Nick Jonas at the same event, seemed to have plucked a leaf out of Lewis Carroll’s fantasy classic, “Alice In Wonderland” and channelled self expression through a multishaded Dior gown in grey, yellow and pink with Chopard danglers. The actor completed the look with grey tinted eyebrows, eyes lined with a white eyeliner, dark maroon lip and shimmering sheer stockings. Styled by Mimi Cuttler, Priyanka also gave a nod to her Indian roots by using ‘bindis’, not one but three on her face. According to Deepika’s stylist Shaleena Nathani, the actor pitched her tent as a “Camp Barbie”. She chose a multi-layered Zac Posen 3D printed gown in a quintessential pink shade and bespoke jewels.last_img read more

Why LA Is Still a Lakers Town

Since Google began tracking search terms in 2004, people in the Los Angeles area have searched for the Lakers eight times more often than they’ve searched for the Clippers.The gap has narrowed since the Clippers traded for Chris Paul in December 2011, but not by that much. The Lakers have received 3.6 times more search traffic from Angelenos since October, when the current NBA season started. This in a year in when the Lakers went 27-55 and the Clippers 57-25.Having an owner like Donald Sterling, with his history of racist remarks and discriminatory business practices, won’t help the Clippers’ popularity (although it may spark more Google searches in the short term). And it’s not as if the team has been any good on the court under his ownership. Since the 1984-85 NBA season, when Sterling moved the Clippers to Los Angeles from San Diego, they are 582 games under .500, counting both the regular season and the playoffs. The Lakers are 772 games over .500 in the same period.Lately, the Clippers have been better, but it will take them some time to catch up. Even if they go 57-25 every season (and break even in the playoffs), they would need until some point in the 2031-32 season to pull themselves over the .500 line. read more

Mitchells Big Ten tournamentrecord 43 leads Ohio State womens basketball into semifinals

Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorINDIANAPOLIS — Coming into the Bankers Life Fieldhouse for the Big Ten tournament on a two-game losing streak, No. 9 Ohio State (24-6, 15-3) wasn’t looking to take 10th-seeded Rutgers (18-14, 8-10) lightly.OSU sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell took matters into her own hands, dropping 43 points to break a Big Ten tournament record for single-game scoring and directing the Buckeyes to a 73-58 victory over the Scarlet Knights in the quarterfinals.Mitchell has scored 91 points in her last two games, pushing herself to No. 11 on OSU’s all-time scoring list by tallying 1,650 points in mere two-year career.Although it seemed as though Mitchell could do no wrong, OSU had a difficult time getting shots to fall from the tip.“Coach (Kevin) McGuff just put the emphasis on we were a little too anxious,” Mitchell said. “Getting a lot of quick shots and just trying to rush the ball a bit more.”The Buckeyes had one of their most sluggish shooting performances of the season in the first half, going 10-of-33 from the field and finishing the first 20 minutes of play with only 26 points. All but eight of those first-half points came from the fingertips of Mitchell.Friday night’s first-half outing was OSU’s second-lowest scoring performance in a first half this season, with its low being 24 points against No. 1 Connecticut at the beginning of the season.Like the Buckeyes, the Scarlet Knights weren’t able to get offensive production from all five players on the court. Instead, senior forward Kahleah Cooper and junior guard Tyler Scaife anchored the Scarlet Knight offense.Scaife utilized her quickness to get to the rim, ending the half with 16 points, while Copper put her power in the paint to good use to chip in 13.Playing catch-up after a slow start in the first half is not a situation that the Buckeyes would consider foreign, but now, in a playoff environment, there was a bit more urgency for the Scarlet and Gray.“Well, the thing we talked about is just getting more balance in our offense,” McGuff said.“We ran more set plays to get drives and get the ball into the paint, either off a pass or off the dribble, and just so we wouldn’t settle for so many threes.”OSU was able to get its first lead of the game at the 7:15 mark after a 3-pointer from Mitchell. After the deep ball, the Buckeyes were able to regain the confidence and swagger that they were searching for. They did not look back for the rest of the game — kind of.The positive feelings of the second half came to a screeching halt when an injury left OSU holding its breath. Senior guard Ameryst Alston crashed into a few Scarlet Knights players in an attempt to grab a loose ball and injured her wrist on the ground, leaving the Buckeye fans in attendance in shock.The collision would send Alston to the locker room early, ending her night with 12 points. She later returned to the bench in the waning seconds with an ice bag resting on her wrist.“Yeah, she came down,” McGuff said. “I think she sprained maybe her wrist. But I don’t have much more than that. I just had a quick update, that was it.”OSU is set to continue its journey through the Big Ten tournament Saturday evening approximately 30 minutes following the semifinal matchup between Maryland and Northwestern, which is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.The Buckeyes are slated to face third-seeded Michigan State with a spot to get to the championship game on Sunday night at 7 p.m. on the line. The Spartans beat OSU in triple overtime in the regular-season finale last Saturday. read more

OSU wrestling coach Tom Ryan pushes for success on off the mat

For many in the wrestling community, it’s a family sport. Often, when one brother wrestles, so do the others. In the case of Ohio State’s wrestling coach Tom Ryan, who has eight of his wrestlers competing for a national championship this season, that’s precisely what happened. “The truth in the situation for me is that basketball was my first love, I played it from second grade until seventh grade,” Ryan said. “And in seventh grade, the coach of the junior high team didn’t think that I was as good as I thought I was.” His junior high basketball coach cut him. His five-year love affair with basketball was in shambles. But Ryan’s brother, who was on the wrestling team, had another idea. “He said, ‘Listen, I want you to try wrestling.’ And I was like, ‘You’re crazy, I ain’t wrestling, I ain’t wearing that singlet,’” Ryan said. But after his first workout with the wrestling team, Ryan said he was hooked. Since he first stepped onto the mat, wrestling has led Ryan to many places, the first being Syracuse University where he followed his brother to wrestle. “My brother was a great role model to me growing up, we were very close,” Ryan said. “Basically, wherever he went at college to wrestle, that’s where I was going to go.” And yet, his heart was at the University of Iowa, where he had attended wrestling camp almost every summer, Ryan said. But Iowa never called and offered him a spot on their wrestling team. Syracuse, on the other hand, was only four or five hours from his hometown, and the full scholarship they offered him made the cost of college easier on his family. For two years, Ryan wrestled and lived with his brother at Syracuse. After finishing 2-2 at the National Tournament at the end of his sophomore year, Ryan said he grew frustrated with his own performance and sought a place that could challenge him to be the best he could possibly be. “I felt that the pull of wanting to stand out in the sport was really tightening at me,” Ryan said. “I had this ache inside, and I just felt that the best way to cure the ache was to go somewhere known to really challenge people.” He packed his car, talked to his parents, his coaches, his team and his brother, and headed to the University of Iowa, the place where his heart was. For two months after arriving in Iowa City, Ryan lived in a hotel until he enrolled in school and walked onto the wrestling team. After coming to Iowa, there was no turning back, Ryan said. “I talk to my team a lot about this, but go burn the boat. It’s like the Vikings, when they conquered a foreign land, the first thing, the first thing they did when they got to shore was burn their boat,” Ryan said. “And the thought process there was, either we conquer this new place or we die here. And that was the thinking; I’m going to this place and there’s no looking back.” His first day of working out with the Hawkeyes still stands out to him, Ryan said. “I remember vividly wrestling with two brothers, twin brothers, they were the Steiner brothers, and they beat me unmercifully,” Ryan said. He said he left practice crying “quite uncontrollably,” and remembers sitting in his car contemplating whether or not he was willing to do what it took and not just what he wanted to give, to make this work. “It was that moment in my life that was a clear crossroads and I obviously decided to stay and before long, I was a starter there, and impacting the program in a positive way,” Ryan said. Ryan graduated from Iowa having been selected as an NCAA Division I All-American twice and won two Big Ten Championships in 1991 and 1992. In the years that have passed since Ryan wrestled his last match for the Hawkeyes, he’s held an assistant coaching position at Indiana and a head coaching job at Hofstra that led him to OSU. Since he took over in 2006, he has led the Buckeyes to two NCAA runner-up seasons in 2008 and 2009 and was awarded the National Coach of the Year in 2009. On Jan. 20, he became OSU’s first wrestling coach to beat Iowa since 1966. For Ryan, though, it’s more than taking down a school like Iowa and making a statement for OSU wrestling. It’s more than just winning Big Ten titles and National Championships. He said the first time he and his family set foot on campus, he realized he had a huge platform to impact peoples’ lives. Even as a freshman wrestler, Cam Tessari said he can already see how invested Ryan is. “He’s a great guy, a great wrestling coach, a great person all around. He definitely wants the best for you in all aspects of life,” he said. Redshirt freshman Logan Stieber agreed. “He’s real energetic, he always has funny stories and he’s got probably the best analogies I’ve ever heard,” he said. “He really cares about everybody on the team and he’ll do anything to help us out and make sure we’re the best we can be.” Ahead of last weekend’s Big Ten wrestling championships in West Lafayette, Ind., Ryan set a goal for OSU to qualify 10 wrestlers to the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championship in St. Louis, Mo., March 15-17. Seven qualified for the national meet, and redshirt freshman Logan Stieber won the Big Ten championship at 133 pounds. The NCAA Division I Wrestling Committee announced Wednesday that an eighth wrestler would receive an at-large bid to the national meet.. Ryan might be serious about crafting the Buckeyes into a national power, but some of his wrestlers say he also has a softer side. Ryan can also be goofy, said freshman wrestler Derek Garcia. “He’s always one of the guys to make jokes and be serious,” he said. “He’s a good guy, an awesome coach, I don’t know how to explain it.” For Ryan, it’s not about him — far from it. The team always starts practice with a talk from Ryan, Tessari said. “He wants you to succeed as a person, rather than just on the mat,” he said. read more

Bundesliga giants join Man Utd in race for Fiorentina defender

first_imgOne of the most promising Serie A defenders may leave Italy in the forthcoming transfer market, with two major Europe clubs looking to grab Fiorentina’s Nikola MilenkovicAn imposing physical presence, as well as, great anticipation and solid technique make Milenkovic a perfect modern defender. Due to his abilities, Stefano Pioli has deployed the Serbia international even as a right-back although he stands 6ft 5in tall.The former Partizan man has started all nine Serie A games for the Viola, having bagged two goals in the process.Milenkovic’s outstanding performance has drawn the attention of Manchester United, with Bayern Munich recently emerging as the most likely candidate to land the strong centre-back, according to the Calciomercato.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.With Jerome Boateng and Niklas Sule both struggling to impress this season, the Bavarians are looking for a defender to partner Matts Hummels.However, the reigning Bundesliga champions will have to splash out around €50 million to wrap up the deal.The 21-year-old Serbian arrived at the Stadio Artemio Franchi from Partizan Belgrade back last year for a reported fee of €5.1 million. So, the Tuscany-based outfit will make a nice profit if Milenkovic continues to perform at the highest level.last_img read more

Former footballer says players have to protect more their mental health

first_imgEx-Wales midfielder David Cotterill explained how he had his own battle with depression, and how athletes need better supportFormer Wales midfielder David Cotterill had a difficult time battling with depression during his time as a footballer.And now, the 30-year-old has said players need a better support network and they need to be treated like human beings.“Guys find it really difficult to talk about it and although it is going in the right direction, I feel that there still needs to be a lot more help,” Cotterill told Sky Sports News.“In the football industry especially, I think many people are scared not to say anything because they don’t want to jeopardize their place in the team. There needs to be a lot more help, especially at club level.”“I think there needs to be a counselor at every football club for the academy players right through to the first-team players. But there needs to be that confidentiality and to make sure it doesn’t get back to the manager,” he added.“If footballers said to their managers ‘I’m not mentally stable this weekend’, then the manager isn’t going to play them on Saturday.”“So I think there needs to be that respect and trust to know that if they are going through difficult times then playing football is their release,” he commented.“When I was playing that was my release to go and play, to go and focus on something else for 90 minutes rather than everything else outside of football.”“So I think it’s important that they have that confidentiality and I think the managers out there need to learn people skills and to communicate with their players as humans, not just as footballers,” he concluded.Dr. says It may occur because of taking a unneccesay antibiotic.We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.” You could be considered reckless or ignorant if you opted to not use them. “But you could die of a deadly infection that could kill you!” chants the choir of voices entrained by a system that sees dangerous enemies lurking behind every life experience.What may surprise you is that the real danger could lie in assaulting your body with an “anti-life” (the actual meaning of the word!) chemical that could very well be a Russian Roulette of unintended harms. Some of these harms are so significant that they could change the course of your entire life as you know it. Given that, I bet that if you knew that there were effective, safe “alternatives,” you’d seriously consider them.To make your own decisions about health, you must inform yourself. Informed consent around medical interventions involves the exploration of the risks, benefits, and alternatives. In our reactivity, however, we are accustomed to focusing only on the promise – knock that infection out and feel better quick! – without any meaningful information around the full breadth of scientifically-evidenced risks and treatment options.It requires a mindset shift to stop fighting. Stop fighting each other, stop fighting nature, and stop fighting our own bodies. We need to break out of our patterned programs of control and domination and understand that this only strengthens our perceived enemies. We need to reconnect to the sacred complexity of pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding as the origin of our health resiliency rather than a time to throw pharmaceuticals into the black box of undisclosed risks. The microbiome itself has taught us – through the poetry of biology – that we are inextricably connected to and dependent upon the web of the natural world. And that it is not possible to simply pull one thread of that web while leaving the rest of it intact. Remember that symptoms give us an opportunity, and perhaps the next time you have an antibiotic prescription dancing in your sights, you might see what it feels like to bring your body love and support rather than the detonation of grenades.last_img read more

High surf advisory goes into effect for San Diego beaches

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Beachgoers in San Diego County and much of the rest of Southern California were asked to exercise extra caution Sunday as a high surf advisory went into effect.The advisory began at 11 a.m. Sunday and will expire at 8 p.m. Tuesday, as a swell from the southern hemisphere and a separate one caused by Hurricane Aletta, several hundred miles off the coast of Baja California Sur, bring dangerous rip currents and longshore currents to the local coast, according to the National Weather Service.The surf was expected to be around four to eight feet Sunday afternoon and remain in that range for the duration of the advisory, potentially reaching as high as 12 feet in some extreme locations.NWS forecasters advised the public to swim near a lifeguard, and to relax and float if caught in a current.“Don’t swim against the current,” the NWS warned. “If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline to escape the current. If unable to escape, face the shore and call and wave for help.”At the same time, another storm off the Mexican coast was poised to potentially have effects in the southwestern United States.Hurricane Bud, the second named storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season, could push into Baja California Sur and result in some residual storms in the region late in the week or next weekend, according to The Weather Channel.The hurricane remains offshore for now, but its outer bands have already triggered a tropical storm watch along the southwestern coast of Mexico.
