first_imgAfter a titanic clash in the quarterfinals of the US Open, Serena Williams defeated Tsveti Pironkova with 2: 1 sets (6: 4, 3: 6, 2: 6) and put an end to the story of the Bulgarian woman. However, the American did not fail to pay tribute to the native tennis player.Gulliver/GettyImages“This victory shows how tough mothers can be. When you give birth, you can do anything. She played very hard,” Serena said immediately after the victory.“What she has achieved is amazing. She is really amazing and deserves respect. At one point I wondered how she does it, she is younger than me. When you are a mother, after you finish the match, you have to go home and you change diapers. That’s the reality. ”“In the beginning, the game didn’t work out for me. However, I didn’t get tired and managed to get together in the second set,” added the winner of the clash.“I think I’m most influenced by moms, I’m like “oh my God, how do you do it?’”Moms inspiring moms, you love to see it 💞@serenawilliams I #USOpen pic.twitter.com/eObjfI8QuK— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 9, 2020 Follow us anywhere and anytime with the mobile application of Gong.bg.

first_imgWhip into shape with these healthy treatsBreakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but it can often be the one that’s hardest to fit into busy schedules. Even if you have time for breakfast, you may find yourself trading wholesomeness and quality for speed and convenience. However, having better-for-you breakfasts need not require a lot of time or effort. It can be as simple as making better and smarter choices.Here are five wholesome, yet easy breakfast options that can start your day off on the right nutritional foot:1. Better-for-you bagel and cream cheeseWho doesn’t love a good bagel? They’re quick, convenient and delicious. They even have their own celebratory day – Feb. 9 is National Bagel Day. If you’ve been shying away from this traditional favorite thinking you don’t need all the carbs of bagels and the additives in most cream cheeses, it’s time to rethink your view. A whole grain bagel topped with a better-for-you spread, like Arla cream cheese, is a satisfying and delicious start to the day. Arla’s cream cheeses (Original, Light, Herbs & Spices, Peppercorn and Blueberry) are free of artificial flavors, preservatives, thickeners and stabilizers. Visit www.ArlaUSA.com to learn more and to discover unique topping combinations from Blueberry cream cheese with smashed berries to Peppercorn cream cheese with Canadian bacon and cooked egg whites.2. A better breakfast burritoClassic breakfast burritos are filling, satisfying and nourishing, but unless you go the frozen route, you may not have the time to whip up a morning burrito. A faster, wholesome option awaits – simply top a whole-grain tortilla with your favorite Arla cream cheese, add fresh-sliced fruit such as kiwi, apple or banana, fold in half and enjoy!3. Outstanding oatmeal As breakfast cereals go, oatmeal is a nutritional champ. A 1-cup serving of plain oatmeal has about 150 calories, and it’s loaded with nourishing fiber, protein and vitamin A. Add flavor with wholesome toppings like fresh berries, chopped apples, raisins or nuts. Here’s even better news – plain instant oatmeal has the same basic nutritional value as the kind you slow-cook yourself, according to the USDA’s Nutrient Database. However, be wary of flavored versions that may have a lot of added sugar.4. Terrific toastsA slice of toasted white bread slathered in butter isn’t sufficient for a good breakfast, but you can take toast to the next level and create a morning meal that’s tasty, wholesome and toasted. Start by toasting a slice of whole grain bread. Next spread on some protein – this could be a sugar-free peanut butter, almond butter or better-for-you cream cheese. Top with your favorite fruit or veggies. For example, banana slices go well with peanut butter; mango or kiwi cubes are yummy with light cream cheese; and tomato slices atop Arla’s Peppercorn cream cheese make for a great wake-up call!5. Easier eggsEveryone knows eggs are a breakfast staple, but who has the time to prepare them in the morning when you’re trying to get everyone out the door? You do! The microwave is your morning best friend, from reheating your coffee to whipping up delectable, easy and wholesome egg breakfasts. You can make scrambled eggs in minutes. Just crack an egg into a microwave-safe cup, add a tablespoon of water or milk, a dash of cayenne pepper and some salt, and a teaspoon or two of your favorite veggie finely diced, such as scallions, tomatoes or mushrooms. Top with a generous spoonful of shredded Havarti or Gouda cheese and microwave everything for 45 seconds. Stir and microwave for another 45 seconds until the eggs are set.Breakfast doesn’t have to be time-consuming or a disappointing compromise. A few better-for-you breakfast options can set a healthful, happy tone for the rest of your day.Brandpointcontent.comlast_img read more

first_imgPresident of the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA), Kalam Azad Juman-Yassin has indicated that the president of the Guyana Cycling Federation, Horace Burrowes has promised to conduct the body’s elections in August. Last month, Juman-Yassin had promised to write Burrowes over the issue since the four-year constitutional term of the current executives had ended  in March without elections being held.Juman-Yassin told Stabroek Sport, “I have written the President and he promised to hold the elections in August but he did not set a date however it will be after the championships.”Guyana is expected to host the Caribbean Junior Cycling Championships August 10-11. The GOA boss added that the correspondence from Burrowes had included an excuse as to why the body had diverted from the constitutional time frame but Yassin called the excuse “flimsy.”When asked if a committee should be installed to run the championships rather than the now illegal body, Juman-Yassin was lenient and noted that in good faith, “let the body handle it, the Championships is just now and it is something good for Guyana we don’t want to be distracted from the Championships.”When it was revealed that the Championships would be hosted in Guyana back in May, Burrowes is on record saying “The elections of the GCF is coming up, but I don’t think that is relevant at this time and I think we will speak on this a different time…the discussion could happen over the phone, when I return…I wouldn’t be hard to find.” The GCF President went on to say, “I will say again the Guyana Cycling Federation is in very good standing with the UCI and the UCI is the world body and they control the federation or every international federation and I do as UCI say and I go as our constitution says and if UCI says to do certain things then I am doing as UCI say so I am actually going to say I don’t think it is relevant for us to speak on that anymore in terms of the elections.”With a number of associations failing to hold their elections within the stipulated time, Juman-Yassin had told this publication that the GOA will be pushing to amend its constitution to reprimand rogue bodies.last_img read more

first_img Source: Boxing – thesun.co.uk 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures! Funny animals make you happy and laugh funny animal compilation Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heels Real or Fake? Shark Attacks Helicopter THEY are never short of hype here in the hot-air capital of the world.But when Tyson Fury’s manager, Frank Warren, describes Saturday night’s clash with Deontay Wilder as “the biggest heavyweight fight of the last 20 years” he is not exaggerating by much.Deontay Wilder is the hardest puncher but Tyson Fury is the sweetest technician, setting up another classicCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdTyson Fury has the style that makes for a compelling trilogy with Deontay WilderIt is certainly the most significant world heavyweight title rematch of the 21st century — and there will almost certainly be a trilogy fight later this year, between Britain’s Gypsy King and the Bronze Bomber of Alabama.Not since Lennox Lewis took on Evander Holyfield here in Las Vegas for the undisputed world title in November 1999 — after the Brit was robbed in a drawn initial bout — has there been so much intrigue about a reunion in boxing’s blue-riband division.Warren said: “Last time we thought our man won but the winner of this one will be regarded as the world’s No 1 heavyweight.“With Lewis and Holyfield, the first one was a controversial draw and it’s the same here, which adds to the plot — but here you’ve got one guy who punches harder than those two and you’ve got a better boxer too.”If rivalry is the essence of great sport and the world heavyweight boxing title is the greatest global accolade, then it might be worth setting your alarm early on Sunday morning.This duo’s first fight for Wilder’s WBC crown was a genuine epic.Fury outboxed the champion, only to be floored twice — most memorably when he miraculously climbed off the canvas after taking a devastating combination in the final round.Wilder is the hardest puncher of his generation, Fury is the supreme sweet scientist of the heavyweight division and with a jaw to match your kitchen work-surface.While Anthony Joshua again holds three of the four world title belts, these two are unbeaten and it is difficult to disagree with Warren’s claim that the winner will be recognised as the true No 1.Yet the paradox is when Wilder and Fury made their arrivals at the MGM Grand on Tuesday night, they were still trying to flog tickets for the venue’s 17,000-capacity Garden Arena.Neither man enjoys the stadium-packing appeal of Joshua.Indeed, tickets to see Barry Manilow sing at the nearby Westgate resort are more sought after in Vegas.In terms of global profile and historic legacy, Wilder and Fury need a memorable trilogy. Such great heavyweight rivalries, stretched over three acts, do not come often.Riddick Bowe versus Holyfield in the 1990s and before that the greatest triple-header of them all, Muhammad Ali versus Joe Frazier, climaxing with the Thrilla in Manilla.Warren said: “It’s up to the loser to invoke the clause and if he invokes it, the third fight is on and it will be their next fight.”Wilder, though, insisted: “Don’t focus on the third one, we have to get through the second one and boxing is the hurt business.“Hopefully, we both come out the same way we came in, embrace each other and do it all over again.”The heavyweight division has waited too long for a truly great rematch, so this is one to be savoured.Wilder, with 41 knockouts from 43 professional bouts, will be favourite once more.There are doubts over Fury’s weight and his decision to ditch trainer Ben Davison just two months ago, in favour of Javan ‘SugarHill’ Steward, nephew of the late, great Emanuel Steward.Yet Fury should never be underestimated. He rose to the occasion magnificently for his two biggest bouts.First, when he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in Frankfurt in 2015 and then when he outclassed Wilder for long stretches in LA, just six months after his return from a two-year lay-off having failed a drugs test and ballooned to almost 30 stone during a deep personal crisis.There are rumours of the Mancunian turning up to tomorrow’s weigh-in with love handles, though he claimed: “I am eating six meals a day and I’m 18st 11lb but leaner than I was last time (when he was half a stone heavier).”Warren is adamant Fury is a boxing scholar, whose decision to switch trainers is well considered.The promoter said: “When he first chose Ben Davison, everyone asked ‘Who’s he?’”Will Steward set Fury on a different course from his usual duck-and-dance routine?He said: “Don’t expect me to come out being a brawler because I’m not one but you can expect something different this time.”Tyson Fury bizarrely claims he has ‘been doing a lot of p**** licking’ to strengthen jaw in training center_img People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 What’s This “Trick” Called?

first_imgCourtesy Cochran Family(NEW YORK) — The family of an American who was killed in the London terror attack last week thanked the public for their generosity and prayers.Utah resident Kurt Cochran was in Europe with his wife Melissa to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary when the attacker, Khalid Masood, drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.“So many people have been so kind, and we are deeply touched by their goodness and generosity,” Melissa Cochran’s brother, Clint Payne, said at a press conference Monday.Payne testified to his brother-in-law’s virtues as a person, including his passion for music, and expressed sadness over the attack.“The most difficult part of this is that Kurt is no longer with us,” he said.Meanwhile, in the Cochrans’ hometown of Utah, friends and musicians gathered inside the Bountiful Davis Art Center to pay tribute to Kurt’s life, according to ABC affiliate KTVX-TV in Utah.Bret Layton, a musician who played alongside Kurt for decades, told the station that he was at work when he heard the news of the terror attack.“I texted him on Facebook Messenger. I said, ‘Hey, I heard this terrorist report in the news, I’m just curious — do you guys know what’s going on? Are you guys alright?’ And I didn’t hear anything back,” he said.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Relatedlast_img read more

first_imgLeBron James dedicated his Instagram page to Duncan, despite the fact that Duncans Spurs beat LBJ teams two-out-of-three times in NBA Finals series.San Antonio Spurs forward and five-time NBA champion Tim Duncan announced his retirement early Monday after 19 seasons with the team that picked him first overall in the 1997 NBA draft. He’s universally considered a notch above Elgin Baylor, Kevin McKale and Karl Malone as the greatest power forward of all time and one of the top 10 to 15 players to ever play the game.The quiet giant is also the only person in league history to win a title in three different decades, winning his first in 1999 and his final one in 2014.As great as he was, Duncan rarely spoke for himself, if he spoke at all (except to protest calls on the court). Therefore it was left for Duncan’s contemporaries and adversaries to speak on his behalf. Many took to Twitter to pay respect to Duncan’s career, legacy and impact on the league.//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jslast_img read more

first_imgBY WAYNE WITKOWSKI Correspondent Erica Falvey The seniors on this year’s Middletown High School South softball team can achieve something rarely reached by a high school athlete: playing on teams that were in four state championship games.Julia Kuhn and Jackie Bates started on the three previous ones before graduating and embarking on to NCAA Division I careers — Kuhn as a third baseman at Northwestern and Bates as right fielder at Rutgers.But this year’s team that returns seven other starters moves from the NJSIAAGroup III to Group IV classification. In the past, playing in Group III meant that it would be playing teams where there was mutual unfamiliarity, since Middletown South plays in the Shore Conference A North composed mostly of Group IV schools.“In the past, we might see some of those teams four times in a season — playing against them in our league, the Monmouth County Tournament and the Shore Conference Tournament. I remember it happening a few years before with a good Marlboro team. Now we may see any of those teams a fifth time, which is really a lot,” said coach Tom Erbig. Allison Nolan Last year’s team ended its season with a loss to Sparta in the state championship game after winning the two previous titles. But can this group compete and contend for that and other titles? St. John Vianney denied Middletown South in both the Monmouth County and Shore Conference tournament finals last year.“I think we can,” Erbig said. “We lost two Division I players, which is rare to have two on the same high school team. If other kids step up and do what they’re capable of, we can repeat [as a Central Jersey sectional champion in the state tournament] and challenge for every title.”Although Middletown South loses two superstar players, it returns the right ingredients to set realistic goals to play at the end of the tournaments. Jill Troiano “The program is right where it should be right now, maybe a little better,” Erbig said.For the many devotees of pitching who profess that it’s good arms that win championships in high school softball, Middletown South welcomes back two very good ones in Allison Nolan, a senior who will be on the mound for her third season, and Alli Podmajerski, a junior who threw ample innings last year. Podmajerski also continues to hit the ball well and could be a DH when Nolan pitches.Nolan again relies on five pitches and two others she can use, with the drop curve thrown the most along with a screwball. She said she doesn’t feel the pressure being a senior with two years of experience as a starting pitcher.“It’s not just on me but on the whole team,” Nolan said. “We’re pretty much working as a unit. We have to work on communicating with each other because we lost two really good players.” Shortstop Jill Troiano, a senior who had the glove and the solid bat last season while earningAll-Shore honors, “will be a big offensive threat,” said Erbig, and likely will bat third in the lineup.“I’m definitely excited,” said Troiano. “We lost key people and we want to prove we’re better than expected. But there’s definitely more motivation to do better than last year, when we ended the season with a loss in the [state] championship game. We just have to come out working hard. We have great coaches. It’s just being dedicated.” Seniors Erica Falvey and Alex Jacinto will play at first and second base, respectively. Either one of them will wind up batting cleanup.Alli Muratore was a fixture at third base in past seasons and her departure to a college career at junior college national power Brookdale Community College leaves another huge spot to fill. Abby Schultz, a junior, is getting a good, favorable look there along with senior Kelsey Logan, who also can fill in at third base, and junior Karinne Kelly, who can play in left field as well.As for the important catcher spot, sophomore Veronica Zega and junior Megan Mitenzwei are competing hard for that start, and the winner will need to keep things smooth behind the plate for the veteran pitchers, and some of the leadership and grit that a solid catcher can provide.Sophomore Grace Heller moves from left field to fill the vacancy in center left by Bates.Senior Taylor Landis is back in right field. Landis will bat leadoff followed by Heller.As for left field, senior Courtney Davis and junior Megan Davidson are leading candidates along with Kelly.“We’ll be fine with Heller and Landis, and in left field we’re looking for a defensive and offensive threat,” Erbig said. “There’s a lot of work involved there. Heller did not hit as much as she could last year, but she’s really looking good at the plate now. If we can get Jacinto and Falvey to hit to their potential … they have the ability, and they’re now showing the consistency.”“Everybody is working hard in practice. The competition is good. The veterans are doing what they’re supposed to be doing. We’re trying to find players for those other positions.”Erbig is confident it will all begin to fall into place by the March 31 opener at 11 a.m. against Chatham. An April 7 game against Immaculate Heart will be a good gauge of progress.Erbig said he also is pleased with the turnout of 24 freshmen, including many good ones. He said five are likely to play in junior varsity and one or two may wind up on varsity as the season progresses.“They all could play on varsity level as seniors,” Erbig said. “They’re very talented.” For now, Erbig is focused on getting the most out of his talented veterans to make for another memorable season.last_img read more

first_imgOrganiser Clive ‘Busy’ Campbell is imploring football fans and hardworking Jamaicans to relax and enjoy this year’s Bring Back the Love after-Labour Day match, set for the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex tomorrow.The annual event, which began at the National Stadium with former West Indies batting great Brian Lara, will celebrate 21 years.Campbell said the match will have what he describes as a star-studded lineup of past national players, entertainers and friends of football.”Even players are donating to the worthy cause this year, so we want the public to come out and bring back the love after they have finished labouring for their communities.”He recalled that the event began when former Prime Minister P.J. Patterson “asked us to play at the National Stadium for the people”.While Campbell’s event began free of cost, its first beneficiary was the Trinitarian Basic School in Olympic Gardens.This year, the proceeds will assist Desmond ‘Gorilla’ Davey and select basic schools, while head of the Peace Management Initiative Horace Levy will be honoured on the day.EVENT COSTThe event will begin at 5 p.m. and the cost is $400 for adults, while children under 12 will enter free.”We want to finish before night, as light will not be afforded, so we ask the public to come out early and enjoy the best entertainment.”Those entertainers confirmed are; I-Octane, Agent Sasco and Chris Martin. Former Reggae Boyz Ian ‘Pepe’ Goodison, Walter ‘Blacka’ Boyd, Ricardo ‘Bibi’ Gardener, and Gregory Messam will also feature.Barbican FC captain Alicia James is also expected to turn out.Others confirmed are Denton Sheddon, Kevin ‘Pele’ Wilson, Cornel Chin-Sue, Moya Pettigrew, Stephen Miller, Ian McNaughton, Kasai Hinds, David Shirley, Robert ‘Bunny’ Scott, Marvin Chin and Ian Wilkinson.The teams will be managed by Andrew Price and Frederick Hemmings, while former FIFA referee Peter Prendergast will be the man in the middle.last_img read more
