“At one point (Winfried) Sch‰fer saw one of my videos and showed some interest, but in terms of a follow-up, I didn’t hear anything. “I have been performing internationally from I was little and in the games that I played, I showed I have the potential to be in the national team. “Now the older me has learned a whole heap more, is smarter and more experienced. It’s just to get the opportunity as I am always looking to play for my country,” the player who turns 31 in April told The Gleaner. Priestly has spent the last five years abroad, plying his trade in Azerbaijan, the United States, Finland and Bangladesh and thinks playing for the national team would also give his family a chance to see him perform in person. “Playing for the country would give me an opportunity to let my family come to my games. That is something I look forward to, but it’s up to them (selectors),” he added. The flamboyant and tricky playmaker, who is commonly called ‘Boogie’ locally, was a crowd favourite since joining Antigua GFC at mid-season in October, and he found the experience of playing in a football-mad country like Guatemala very inspiring and encourages local players to try and break into the international market to gain experience in like environments. GREAT POTENTIAL GOOD PERFORMANCE “My performance was really good throughout. I scored a few goals and had a few assists, and in the final, I had a good performance. It was a great feeling helping them to their first championship,” he said. “Football-wise, I really like the city. I really enjoy the football, the style of play. They are more technical, more touches, and as such, and it really suits my game. I feel at home there. Even before you go on the field you are ready to play because you are playing in a country where the people love football, so your game goes up without you doing anything different just because of the energy. So those things motivate me … if nobody is in the stands, you won’t have any motivation. “Apart from Arnett or Waterhouse, you don’t really get that vibe when you are playing here,” he pointed out. “Any player who used to play overseas and comes back here can tell you it’s a different feeling when you are lacing up your boots,” he insisted. Although the player is currently a free agent, he is constantly in contact with his agent and expects to join a team soon, as he is looking for an even better 2016. “I want the best for myself, so, God’s willing, He will provide something. I will just continue to play hard and play my football. If you are playing good football, you are going to stand out no matter where you are, and that is all I want to do: try and improve in any way possible. That is the aim, to get better for 2016,” he added. Almost a decade after playing the last of his six games for the Reggae Boyz, creative midfielder Akeem Priestly still has the hope, desire and will to represent his country. The former Harbour View player just completed the Guatemala top-flight season with Antigua GFC, playing a starring role in their first-ever championship. The well-travelled player, who made his senior international debut at age 19 against Guatemala, believes he still has something to offer at the international level and thinks he is playing well enough to earn a recall. “I did multiple interviews in Guatemala and they (reporters) asked me why I am not playing for the national team. They watch the team (Jamaica) and say what I show I could definitely make the team. But I tell them it’s beyond my control,” admitted Priestly.

The rival to Highland Radio’s domination of the Donegal airwaves says it stands over all of its claims in its bid to win the radio license for the county.DLFM, fronted by former Highland boss Charlie Collins, submitted its application to the Broadcasting Association of Ireland recently.Both applications belonging to Highland and DLFM were made public on the BAI’s website on Wednesday. But within hours of the move Highland boss Gerry Rabbitt was threatening legal action against DLFM for the contents of its application.Mr Rabbitt is refusing to elaborate any further on those threats or what they pertain to.But DLFM last night issued a statement saying they stand over their application but will not comment on unspecific claims made by Highland.The statement, issued on behalf of DLFM by Charlie Collins said “DLFM has submitted a comprehensive application to the BAI for the North Donegal Broad Format Radio Franchise Services. “The contents of this application are fully correct and supported by empirical evidence, where relevant. This application is currently being considered by BAI as part of a competition process.“Therefore, DLFM is not prepared to comment on the unspecific claims that have been advanced by Highland Radio in connection with that application other than to categorically refute such claims.”It will be known in the coming weeks who has won the license to rule the North Donegal airwaves from September next and remain there for ten years.COLLINS SAYS DLFM STANDS OVER SUBMISSION AS RADIO BID HOTS UP was last modified: November 1st, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie CollinsDLFMGerry RabbittHighland
It’s February, and that can only mean one thing. Dry January is over.But let’s face it, for some of you, dry January was over the 2nd weekend of the year. You can be offended by that all you want, but you know it’s true. Alcohol is one of the main culprits as to why you struggle with weight loss. In your head, you don’t drink a lot. The reality is; you do.By a lot, I’m not talking about frequent binges, I’m more talking to those of you who ‘only’ have a glass of wine each night, or an ‘odd’ bottle of beer at the end of a hard day’s work. Sure, you have to live, and they won’t do that much damage… Here’s the thing! Alcohol has calories in it, and they all count towards your daily and weekly totals. So if you are consuming it on a regular basis, the chances are you will struggle with weight loss.When it comes to calorie intake, drinking a glass or 2 each night is no different to drinking only at the weekends.If your goal is weight loss and you feel that you are ‘being good’ and ‘eating healthy’ during the week, a weekends drinking could mess it up on you.Let’s take a weekend, ‘on the lash’ as an example. A 330ml bottle of beer has 142 calories, if you drink pints that number increases to 244 calories.So, if we take that the start of the night for most will be around 5-6 bottles or pints before hitting the nightclub, you will have already hit 852 calories for the bottle drinkers and 1464 calories for the drinker of pints.Now the fun begins.You hit the nightclub and it’s party time.You move onto spirits. Vodka has 95 calories per half and just like Pringles, you can’t only have one, so let’s average it out to 4. Of course, because we’re watching our weight, we will mix it with diet coke. 4 x vodkas + diet coke = 384 caloriesFor our bottle drinkers, the grand total for a night is 1236 calories.For our pint drinkers, the grand total for one night is 1848 calories.This isn’t even allowing for mixers like Redbull, full sugar mixers like coke, the ‘it wouldn’t be a party without shots, or a trip to the takeaway at the end of the night.’ By the way, if you mixed the shorts with Redbull, the total would be 608 calories instead of 384 calories.Add in a takeaway at the end that would add on around 838 calories. This is one night, one night with a possible higher end total of between 2298 and 2910 calories.If you regularly do 2 nights like this, just double those figures.If you ‘only’ have a glass of wine each evening and then maybe 1-2 bottles at the weekend, you would be along the same lines, it’s just spread out more throughout the week.4 bottles of red wine, which would be 1 liberal drink each night and 2 bottles at the weekend have 2256 calories. (source drinkaware.ie)So, you would be taking in much the same as one night out for the weekend warrior.This isn’t allowing for the cheese and crackers you ate with the wine, or for the breakfast that the weekend warrior ate the following morning to take away the taste of alcohol and that kebab they think they ate.A fry-up could mean anything between 700 – 1200 extra calories to add on.What you also need to know is that a lot of the calories in alcohol are ‘empty calories’ they are virtually useless to the body, so when you drink alcohol fat burning slows down considerably, until the alcohol calories are burned off, so you have more of a chance that you could be storing fat.As I have said before, weight loss comes down to calories in versus calories out. If you are in a moderate calorie deficit all week, say 300 calories each day, and then you are drinking regularly or drinking all weekend, it is going to have an effect.300 calorie deficit X 5 days = A 1500 weekly calorie deficitIf you are drinking an extra 2500-3000 calories each week, you will not lose weight.Now you know this, STOP COMPLAINING THAT YOU CAN’T LOSE WEIGHT!You might be dieting like a model on fashion week, but if you are drinking like an Irishman on Paddy’s day on top of this, you are going to be either ruining your chances of weight loss, or severely hampering them.Calories count, it doesn’t matter how you try and get around it, you can’t beat this.If you currently struggle with your weight, you may need to either reduce or eliminate alcohol from your diet.#TrainSmartDD Fitness: Why alcohol is ruining your weight loss was last modified: February 2nd, 2018 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:alcoholcaloriesDrinkingemmet rusherushe fitnessweight loss

A flock of starlings flies as one, a spectacular display in which each bird flits about as if in a well-choreographed dance. Everyone seems to know exactly when and where to turn. Now, for the first time, researchers have measured how that knowledge moves through the flock—a behavior that mirrors certain quantum phenomena of liquid helium.”This is one of the first studies that gets to the details of how groups move in unison,” says David Sumpter of Uppsala University in Sweden, who was not part of the study.The remarkable accord with which starling flocks fly has long puzzled researchers and bird watchers alike. In the 1930s, the ornithologist Edmund Selous even suggested that the birds cooperate via telepathy. Researchers have since turned to more scientifically sound ideas, using mathematical models.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)In the 1990s, physicist Tamás Vicsek of Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest came up with one of the more successful models, which is based on the principle that each bird flies in the same direction as its neighbors. If a bird angles right, the ones next to it will turn to stay aligned. Although this model reproduces many features well—how a flock swiftly aligns itself from a random arrangement, for example—a team of researchers from Italy and Argentina has now discovered that it doesn’t accurately describe in detail how flocks turn.In their new study, the team, led by physicists Andrea Cavagna and Asja Jelic of the Institute for Complex Systems in Rome, used high-speed cameras to film starlings—which are common in Rome and form spectacular flocks—flying near a local train station. Using tracking software on the recorded video, the team could pinpoint when and where individuals decide to turn, information that enabled them to follow how the decision sweeps through the flock. The tracking data showed that the message to turn started from a handful of birds and swept through the flock at a constant speed between 20 and 40 meters per second. That means that for a group of 400 birds, it takes just a little more than a half-second for the whole flock to turn.”It’s a real tour de force of measurement,” says Sriram Ramaswamy of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research’s Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences in Hyderabad, India, who wasn’t part of the research.The fact that the information telling each bird to turn moves at a constant speed contradicts the Vicsek model, Cavagna says. That model predicts that the information dissipates, he explains. If it were correct, not all the birds would get the message to turn in time, and the flock wouldn’t be able to fly as one.The team proposes that instead of copying the direction in which a neighbor flies, a bird copies how sharply a neighbor turns. The researchers derived a mathematical description of how a turn moves through the flock. They assumed each bird had a property called spin, similar to the spins of elementary particles in physics. By matching one another’s spin, the birds conserved the total spin of the flock. As a result of that conservation, the equations showed that the information telling birds to change direction travels through the flock at a constant speed—exactly as the researchers observed. It’s this constant speed that enables everyone to turn in near-unison, the team reports online today in Nature Physics.The new model also predicts that information travels faster if the flock is well aligned—something else the team observed, Cavagna says. Other models don’t predict or explain that relationship. “This could be the evolutionary drive to have an ordered flock,” he says, because the birds would be able to maneuver more rapidly and elude potential predators, among other things.Interestingly, Cavagna adds, the new model is mathematically identical to the equations that describe superfluid helium. When helium is cooled close to absolute zero, it becomes a liquid with no viscosity at all, as dictated by the laws of quantum physics. Every atom in the superfluid is in the same quantum state, exhibiting a cohesion that’s mathematically similar to a starling flock.The similarities are an example of how deep principles in physics and math apply to many physical systems, Cavagna says. Indeed, the theory could apply to other types of group behavior, such as fish schools or assemblages of moving cells, Sumpter says.Other models, such as the Vicsek model or others that treat the flock as a sort of fluid, probably still describe flock behavior over longer time and length scales, Ramaswamy says. But it’s notable that the new model, which is still based on relatively simple principles, can accurately reproduce behavior at shorter scales. “I think that’s cool,” he says. “That’s an achievement, really.”Sumpter agrees. “It’s kind of reassuring we don’t need to think about the telepathic explanation,” he says.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Ashleigh Barty waited six hours to get her spot in the Miami Open women’s final. Denis Shapovalov needed to pull off yet another comeback to earn his berth into the semifinals.Roger Federer, meanwhile, made winning seem relatively easy.And Simona Halep’s chance to return to No. 1 in the world fell apart against Karolina Pliskova.Federer is back in the Miami semifinals, the No. 4 seed winning the first eight games of his match and eventually ousting sixth-seeded Kevin Anderson 6-0, 6-4 as part of a very long, very soggy Thursday at Hard Rock Stadium. He won a marathon ninth game of the final set to break Anderson for a 5-4 lead, then served it out at love.“I got a bit lucky there at the end,” Federer said. “But it was a great fight by Kevin and of course I enjoyed the match.”Anderson hadn’t lost a set 6-0 since October 2016 — 353 sets ago. He rallied from a break down to get back on serve in the second, before Federer took control at the end.“They just don’t happen often enough,” Federer said of that 6-0 first set. “I think I played a really, solid, nice first set with very few mistakes.”Mistakes doomed Halep, who lost to fifth-seeded Pliskova 7-5, 6-1. Pliskova was up 5-0 in the second set when play was interrupted — for at least the sixth time Thursday — by rain shortly before midnight. Halep, the No. 2 seed, would have replaced Naomi Osaka as the top-ranked women’s player if she won the semifinal.She led 5-3 in the opening set, and just unraveled. Pliskova won nine consecutive games before the skies opened during a changeover. After waiting about an hour for the rain to stop and the court to be dried, she needed only four more minutes of play and finished out the match at 1:11 a.m. — or 6:11 a.m. Friday in her native Czech Republic, 7:11 a.m. Friday in Halep’s native Romania.So the day’s winners were Federer, Shapovalov, Barty, Pliskova and the rain.“We can’t control the weather,” Barty said.Barty walked away from tennis about five years ago, saying she was basically burned out at 17. She returned three years ago. And now at 22, she’s better than ever.The 12th-seeded Barty endured enduring three rain delays on Thursday before ousting 21st-seeded Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 6-3 in the first women’s semifinal. Next up is the biggest final of her singles career, against Pliskova.“Obviously, I’ve been doing the right things throughout the week to put be able to put myself in a position to play for a title,” Barty said. “You have to go out there and embrace it.”Barty, who will rise to a career-best No. 9 in the world ranking next week, was to take the court for the semifinal against Kontaveit at 1 p.m. Rain pushed their start time back to 2:08, and the delays were just getting started.They got three games — six minutes of tennis — in before the first in-match delay stopped things for more than two hours. They got another game in before more rain arrived, prompting another two-hour delay.At 7:32 p.m., finally, Barty could celebrate. Kontaveit fended off one match point with a forehand drop shot, but was ousted by an ace on the following point. Barty was down 3-1 in the second, but won the final five games.“Very long day,” said Barty, who passed the time in the locker room by drinking coffee and watching golf. “But for me, it’s an opportunity to come out and play another match.”Federer is 37 years old. That’s the combined age of the two Canadian teens in the men’s semifinals — Shapovalov, 19, will face Federer on Friday night, and the 18-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime will meet defending Miami champion John Isner of the U.S. earlier Friday.“It’s great for the game because they will carry the sport when we’re long gone and we’ll be sitting on the couch watching those guys slug it out,” Federer said about the young Canadians. “It’ll be a joy to watch because not only are they great, great players but they’re good people, too.”Shapovalov reached the semifinals by beating 28th-seeded Frances Tiafoe 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-2 — the third time in four matches at this tournament that he rallied from a set down before prevailing. And the success for Auger-Aliassime and Shapovalov in Miami follows the story of 18-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu winning the title at Indian Wells earlier this month.O, Canada, indeed.“Pretty crazy. Everyone is super excited back home,” said Auger-Aliassime, who wasn’t in the top 100 of the world rankings two months ago and now will climb to No. 33 next week — if not higher. “It’s great to hear all these good comments from them. It puts a lot of belief in tennis in Canada. I think all the Canadian players from the young kids to Denis and Bianca and I, there is a lot of belief right now, so it’s great to see.”By: Tim Reynolds, AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shares
