Powered by Firework Assessing risk is a pretty tough task in sports, even in cricket, taking decision under a critical point in a match can completely change the outcome of the game. Every great name in the gentleman’s game have been famous for taking such risks in some point of their career, which has often rewarded them in the long run. Former Team India stalwart Rahul Dravid, who is revered for the calm and composed attitude he maintained on the 22 yards, spoke about one important decision back during his academic days that was very impactful for his career.Advertisement Image Courtesy: IANSOn Sunday, Dravid teamed up with retired Indian badminton icon and former world no. 1 Prakash Padukone and Olympic gold medallist Abhinav Bindra for the talk show ‘Staying Ahead of the Curve – The Power of Trust’ organised by the Padukone – Dravid Centre For Sports Excellence located in Bengaluru.Joined by the host Mr. Nandan Kamath, the three icons of the Indian sporting fraternity had discussion on various topics ranging from the current novel Coronavirus pandemic to how the lock down might affect the performance and fitness of sportspersons.Advertisement Speaking about the precautionary measures that are necessary during the ongoing virus crisis, the trio were asked about the importance of ‘risk assessment’ in sports. Dravid, who was famous for his defensive and sound approach towards cricket, spoke on how critical decisions impact on a player’s career.“There are certain stages in your career when you need to be able to take certain risks, take certain decisions that probably go against the grain of conventional thinking, if you really want to be a successful sportsman,” Dravid said during the live session.Advertisement Recalling his academic years, there was a certain point of time when Dravid was up against a critical decision to make.He continued, “I got out of 10th standard with an opportunity to get into any of the engineering colleges in Bangalore. They had good cricket teams at that time as well and quite keen to get me to join one of them.”However, the young Dravid took the risk of opting for commerce instead of engineering, so he could invest more time in cricket.“I kinda realised that I would not be able to pursue sports seriously or to the level that I wanted to if I picked up engineering, it would have been a lot more complicated for me at least personally. So, I went with commerce,” the 47 year old added.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Virat Kohli reveals origins of his ‘maniac’ mentality to fellow skipper Sunil ChhetriDale Steyn reveals umpire Ian Gould’s fear for his safety influenced decision to give Tendulkar not out Advertisement

Tribal Storm–Drayden Van Dyke–123Ann Arbor Eddie–Mario Gutierrez–123Hinx–Norberto Arroyo, Jr.–119Hot Smoke–Joe Talamo–119California Diamond–Kent Desormeaux–123Six Point Rack–Stewart Elliot–119Coils Gold–Martin Garcia–119 ANN ARBOR EDDIE: Owned and bred by Reddam Racing, LLC, this chestnut gelding by top California-based stallion Square Eddie defeated California Diamond by 1 ¼ lengths in the one mile King Glorious Stakes at Los Alamitos Dec. 18, as he pressed the early pace and proved best at 5-2. Trained by Doug O’Neill, “Eddie” was a sharp third behind top Kentucky Derby Prospect Mastery and California Diamond two starts back in the Grade III, seven furlong Bob Hope Stakes on Nov. 19 at Del Mar. With two wins from three starts, Ann Arbor Eddie will try to establish himself as a contender for the $1 million Santa Anita Derby with a big performance here on Saturday. ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 25, 2017)–Rivals Ann Arbor Eddie and California Diamond will renew acquaintances on Saturday at Santa Anita as they head a field of seven going a mile and a sixteenth in the $250,000 California Cup Derby. Part of the Golden State Series, the Cal Cup Derby is for California-bred or sired three year olds. Along with the top two, impressive first-out maiden sprint winner Coils Gold looms dangerously for Bob Baffert. COILS GOLD: Owned and bred by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, he marched to an impressive 5 ½ length first-out maiden win versus state-breds going six furlongs at Del Mar on Nov. 13. From the first crop of top sprinter, Coil, Coils Gold will certainly ensure a lively Derby pace on Saturday as he runs in the bi-coastal shadow of his Breeders’ Cup Classic Champion stablemate, Arrogate, who takes on California Chrome in the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park. CALIFORNIA DIAMOND: Based at San Luis Rey Downs Training Center, he was sold privately following his win in the 5 ½ furlong Santa Anita Juvenile on July 9 and he’s been a gem of consistency in seven subsequent starts for Rockingham Ranch and trainer Peter Miller. A four-time stakes winner, the dark bay or brown colt by Harbor the Gold is 9-5-4-0 overall with earnings of $417,780. Despite his impressive resume, distance remains a question, as he tired a bit late when second to Ann Arbor Eddie in his only try at two turns, the King Glorious Stakes on Dec. 18.

Hudson Passive House, which was completed last year and is listed for sale at $595,000, is being touted for its nod to regional architecture and its understated luxury – a combination that often proves to be catnip to city dwellers of means who are sniffing around for a second home.The house is in Claverack, New York, a few miles east of the Hudson River and a little more than two hours’ drive north of Manhattan – a location comparable in distance and tranquility to places like Washington, Connecticut (another Manhattanite favorite that is far pricier) and a range of other semi-rural locations in Upstate New York. The Hamptons this not.Marketing for Hudson Passive House focuses heavily on its Passivhaus design and construction, and its provenance as one of the first single-family homes in the state to meet the standard. At 1,650 sq. ft., the three-bedroom home features exterior walls insulated to R-48, an R-54 roof, an R-60 floor, and airtightness of 0.149 air changes per hour at a pressure difference of 50 Pascals. As we noted in an earlier post about the project, mechanical ventilation is provided by a Zehnder ComfoAir 200 heat-recovery ventilator, while space heating is provided by a mini-split air-source heat pump that is mounted in the wall of the loft space at the north end of the building.A PH showcaseSo for those attuned to energy efficiency the house has cachet. Last fall, as it neared completion, it attracted visits from members of New York Passive House (NYPH), a New York City-based group of consultants, contractors, architects, engineers, homeowners, developers, and others. And it is participating in New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s High-Performance Residential Development Challenge, a program designed to provide assistance in design, energy modeling construction oversight, and performance monitoring of projects aiming for exceptionally high energy efficiency.Dennis Wedlick Architecture, of nearby Hudson, led the design team, and Bill Stratton Building Company, of Old Chatham, handled construction. We’re checking on final construction costs.Another detail not mentioned in our original blog on this project but was noted in a New York Times “House Tour” post on July 22: the house sits on seven acres, and the estimated annual tax bill is about $6,000.
Return to article. Long DescriptionPixabay[First Aid Box Tin Can by Alexa_Fotos on October 11, 2016, CCO]Many of us prioritize our physical health, especially this time of year as we go through flu season once again. We get the sniffles and the sneezes, with the soon to be congestion and fever. And if you didn’t get your flu shot, you soon wind up in your local doctor’s office or urgent care, hoping for some much needed meds, a doctor’s note, and some sick days.When we are physically sick or hurt, it’s a no-brainer to take care of ourselves. But what about our psychological health? Is it okay to take time off when we are anxious, depressed, or emotionally overwhelmed? Why is our physical health seemingly so much more important than our psychological health?This TED Talk features Dr. Guy Winch, a licensed psychologist who works with individuals, couples, and families. Dr. Winch proposes that we start prioritizing our mental health just as much as our physical health. And the way he says to do this is to practice emotional first aid. In his work with clients, he has emphasized the need to practice mental and emotional hygiene, stressing that it is equally as important as practicing physical and dental hygiene.Some key points he makes in his presentation are:• We are confronted with psychological injuries much more often than we are with physical ones. These are injuries such as failure, rejection, and loneliness.• To be aware of feelings of helplessness that arise.• We should pay attention to the emotional pain we experience and recognize this pain is trying to tell us something.• We are our own worse critic when faced with rejection or failure. He suggests treating yourself with the same compassion that you would expect from a truly good friend when they are trying to comfort and boost you up.• That we must protect our self-esteem by noticing these unhealthy psychological habits and explore what they are trying to tell us.• Also, that ruminating thoughts come and go. A two minute distraction is enough to break the urge to ruminate in any given moment.These issues are all ones we face on a daily basis and are common barriers for both civilians and military service members alike. For more on practicing emotional first aid, be sure to watch Dr. Winch’s full TED Talk here. And for more about mental health barriers in the military, be sure to catch the archived recording of our “Staying Strong by Seeking Help” webinar.

Sarri declares Fabregas should leave Chelseaby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has backed Cesc Fabregas’ departure from the club. The 31-year-old is on the verge of joining Monaco, managed by his former teammate Thierry Henry.Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham, Sarri said: “I can say only my opinion, I don’t know the decision of the club. [And] in my opinion he needs to go.”At this club there’s a rule, the renewal of players over 30 is for one year. I don’t want a player as important as Cesc unhappy.”I don’t know, yesterday he had a free day for the injury, so I don’t know.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say
