Hoban believes he can still be an EPL player

first_imgThe 25-year-old English defender believes he has what it takes to play in England’s highest football level.Tommie Hoban started his professional career in 2011 with Watford.There, he scored two goals in 54 appearances as a defender.He was loaned to Wealdstone in 2012, then to Blackburn Rovers in the 2016-2017 season.His latest loan cames this summer, as he joined Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League.But the 25-year-old believes he has what it takes to play in England’s highest football level.“Unfortunately for me it’s been one thing after another,” he tells The42.“You do get to a point where you have to ask yourself if you can go back to it again.”“I was devastated, to be honest,” he says.“You try to stay as positive as you can, but when so much time in your career is going to waste it does get hard to keep your spirits up. If you get too down it can become a negative cycle which can be really hard to get out of.”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.“When the injury happened, my son was a few weeks away from being born, so you’re starting to think about his future as well. ‘How many more times can I go through this?’ — that’s what you’re asking yourself,” he added.“I had already been looking into a few other things, doing some extra studying outside of football just to prepare for the worst-case scenario if it ever got to that stage.”“My dad has a business in financial advising and it’s something I’ve always had an interest in,” he recalled.“It’s hard to explain, but even when you get back to fitness, you’ve missed so much football that your body doesn’t feel the same as it did before. You have to make a lot of adjustments. Your recovery takes longer and that can take a bit of getting used to.”“Obviously it has been great to be back playing recently,” said the Watford loanee.“I feel fit now but I still have issues sometimes with pain. I’ve had to take tablets before and after games. That can all take a toll on you. But being part of a winning team, as I have been in the last few weeks, is a feeling that not many things can come close to.”…I know the club will bounce back to where they belong soon and I wish all the players, staff and fans all the best for the future!— Tommie Hoban (@tommiehoban05) May 7, 2017last_img read more

Google Chromes Canvas app lets you unleash your artistic ability

first_img Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Comments Post a comment Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

The prominent Remainbacking MP Ben Bradshaw has u

first_imgThe prominent Remain-backing MP Ben Bradshaw has urged colleagues not to break away from the Labour Party in an interview with LabourList.The former Culture Secretary, now a leading supporter of the ‘People’s Vote’ campaign, confirmed reports that he told party colleagues on a pro-referendum WhatsApp group not to “do something silly” and walk away, following last night’s refusal by the Labour leadership to back an amendment demanding a year-long extension of Article 50.He called for the whip to be enforced against Labour MPs who voted for Theresa May’s Brexit deal – and warned of an ‘exodus’ of Labour members unless the leadership backed a fresh referendum.Speaking to LabourList, Mr Bradshaw rejected calls for a split: “My very strong view is that everybody’s efforts at the moment need to be focused on getting us out of this Brexit nightmare and ensuring the party leadership honours our unanimously agreed conference motion.“It’s clear there can’t be a general election in the next six weeks, and Theresa May has rejected Corbyn’s softer Brexit offer. The party must move now to implement our policy which is a public vote.”Putting pressure on the Labour leadership, Mr Bradshaw told this site it was unthinkable that Jeremy Corbyn could continue to resist calls for a so-called ‘People’s Vote’.“It’s inconceivable to me that Jeremy – who has based his whole leadership on party democracy and listening to members would renege on our agreed policy. If that happened it would cause uproar.”Following reports of a mass walkout of members over the party’s Brexit policy, Mr Bradshaw said he was “very worried” about an ‘exodus’.The MP for Exeter refused to comment directly on MP colleagues’ discussions regarding a ‘Valentine’s Day split’, but said: “A lot of [party] members are hanging on because they’re hoping Jeremy will not betray them.”Much hinges on the next few weeks and whether Article 50 will be delayed. The backbencher said the party would ‘potentially have more time’ to clarify it’s Brexit position were there an extension.But he warned against dithering: “The public and party members are looking for firm leadership at this very perilous time in our country’s history.”When asked about fears that backing second referendum could leave to a collapse in Labour’s support in Leave-backing areas, the Exeter MP added: “All the polling evidence shows Labour would suffer huge damage if we are complicit in or enable a Tory Brexit.“Most Labour voters in [Leave-backing] seats voted Remain and the swing since the referendum has been most marked in the seats that voted leave. It’s a time for those MPs to do what is in the country’s best interests.”Commenting on the four Labour MPs who voted for Theresa May’s Brexit statement on Thursday night, he suggested disciplinary action could be considered. “It’s very disappointing, but it emphasises how important it that the whip is properly enforced.“Many members and MPs were concerned two weeks ago when the whip on the Cooper-Boles amendment [attempting to rule out no deal] was not enforced – in contrast to when those who broke the whip to vote for a customs union and the single market were sacked or asked to resign.”While refusing to call for the whip to be withdrawn from Leave-backing Labour backbenchers, Mr Bradshaw added: “We do need to have some consistency.”Pro-EU MPs have long been angry over the apparent discrepancy between the leadership’s treatment of Remainer rebels compared to Leaver rebels.The prominent Remainer also avoided suggestions Remainers could lay an amendment for a second referendum in coming weeks. “It’s certainly getting very late to table and vote on a public vote amendment. We can’t wait to the end of march to do so…The immediate priority is to take no deal off the table. If May won’t do that herself, Parliament has to do that for her.”“Given that all the other options in Labour’s policy are now exhausted, I don’t see what’s holding the front bench up of going for a public vote.”On Thursday night another prominent Labour Remainer, Chris Leslie, said backbenchers were “being played for fools by the leadership” over Corbyn’s refusal to back a fresh public vote.Asked whether he agreed, Ben Bradshaw said: “I’m not as pessimistic as Chris. But if that doesn’t happen, there will be uproar in the party.”Josiah Mortimer is editor of Left Foot Forward and is covering Sienna while she’s away.Tags:Interview /Labour /Ben Bradshaw /Brexit /Corbyn /labour split /second referendum /People’s Vote /Valentine’s Day split /Bradshaw /exclusive /last_img read more

CocaCola Is Betting Big on a New Kind of Milk That Costs

Introducing fairlife purely nutritious milk! Hayley Peterson November 25, 2014 Coca-Cola is launching a new kind of milk nationwide that the company says will “rain money.”The product is called Fairlife and it will sell for twice the price of regular milk when it hits store shelves nationally in December, Coca-Cola’s North American chief Sandy Douglas said at Morgan Stanley’s Global Consumer Conference last week.”It’s basically the premiumisation of milk,” Douglas said.The milk doesn’t contain lactose, and it has 50% more protein and calcium than regular milk, as well as 30% less sugar. Click to Enlarge+These are some of the advertisements for Fairlife milk.Fairlife is “a milk that’s premiumised and tastes better and we’ll charge twice as much for it as the milk we’re used to buying in a jug,” Douglas said, according to a transcript of his remarks. The milk is made on a sustainable dairy farm with “fully sustainable high-care processes with animals” and “has a proprietary milk filtering process,” he said. “The test markets have been amazing, and we’ve created a joint venture with a bunch of dairy farmers who are innovative leaders in the dairy industry.”This is the beginning of a long-term investment in the dairy business for Coca-Cola.”We’re going to be investing in the milk business for a while to build the brand so it won’t rain money in the early couple of years,” Douglas said. “But like Simply [orange juice], when you do it well it rains money later.”Coca-Cola’s investment comes at a tough time for the milk industry. Fluid milk sales have been declining for the past four decades. This story originally appeared on Business Insider Product Innovation Add to Queue 2 min read –shareslast_img read more

Chewing gum could be a strategy to help reduce vitamin deficiency

first_img Source: Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Oct 10 2018Nearly 15 percent of all chewing gum varieties sold promise to provide health-enhancing supplements to users, so Penn State researchers studied whether two vitamin-supplemented products were effective at delivering vitamins to the body. Their results validate the concept of gum as an effective delivery system for at least some vitamins.The research marks the first time that researchers closely scrutinized vitamin delivery from chewing gum, according to Joshua Lambert, professor of food science in the College of Agricultural Sciences. The findings, he suggests, indicate that chewing gum — a pleasant habit for many — could be a strategy to help reduce vitamin deficiency around the world, a problem described as an epidemic.Even in the United States vitamin deficiency is a serious problem, with nearly one in 10 people over the age of 1 deficient in vitamins B6 and C, according to a recent analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.”I was slightly surprised that no one had done a study like this before given the number of supplement-containing gum products on the market,” Lambert said. “But there is no requirement that nutritional gums be tested for efficacy, since they fall into the category of dietary supplements.”To find out if supplemented gum contributes vitamins to chewers’ bodies, researchers had 15 people chew two off-the-shelf supplemented gums and measured the levels of eight vitamins released into their saliva. In a separate experiment on the same subjects, the researchers measured the levels of seven vitamins in their plasma.The researchers used an identical gum product — minus the vitamin supplements — as a placebo in the study.Lambert and colleagues found that retinol (A1), thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacinamide (B3), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid, cyanocobalamin (B12), ascorbic acid (C), and alpha-tocopherol (E) were released into the saliva of study participants who chewed the supplemented gums. After chewing the supplemented gums, study participants’ blood plasma vitamin concentrations, depending on which supplemented gum they chewed, were increased for retinol, by 75 to 96 percent; pyridoxine, 906 to 1,077 percent; ascorbic acid, 64 to 141 percent; and alpha-tocopherol, 418 to 502 percent, compared to the placebo.Related StoriesSchwann cells capable of generating protective myelin over nerves finds researchTAU’s new Translational Medical Research Center acquires MILabs’ VECTor PET/SPECT/CTDon’t Miss the Blood-Brain Barrier Drug Delivery (B3DD) Summit this AugustFor the most part, the research demonstrated that water-soluble vitamins such as vitamins B6 and C were increased in the plasma of participants who chewed supplemented gum compared to participants who chewed the placebo gum. In supplemented gum chewers, researchers also saw increases in the plasma of several fat-soluble vitamins such as the vitamin-A derivative retinol and the vitamin-E derivative alpha tocopherol.That was the most significant finding of the study, Lambert pointed out. At least for the products tested, the water-soluble vitamins were almost completely extracted from the gum during the process of chewing. The fat-soluble vitamins were not completely released from the gum.”Improving the release of fat-soluble vitamins from the gum base is an area for future development for the manufacturer,” he said.Lambert offered one caution about the findings, which were published online this month in the Journal of Functional Foods.”This study was done in an acute setting — for a day we have shown that chewing supplemented gum bumps up vitamin levels in blood plasma,” he said. “But we haven’t shown that this will elevate plasma levels for vitamins long-term. Ideally, that would be the next study. Enroll people who have some level of deficiency for some of the vitamins in supplemented gum and have them chew it regularly for a month to see if that raises levels of the vitamins in their blood.”​last_img read more

New study helps doctors better understand high blood pressure in pregnant women

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 13 2019According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 6 – 8% of pregnant women experience hypertension. High blood pressure during pregnancy is associated with a number of risks to the woman and fetus, including low-birth weight infants, preterm birth, problems with the placenta, heavy bleeding, heart defects and other congenital anomalies, and in the most severe cases death.In 2017, the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) changed their guidance to lower the threshold criteria for hypertension in adults. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), however, uses different criteria to identify hypertension in pregnant women. In a study to be presented on February 15, 2019, at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s (SMFM) annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting™, researchers will unveil findings that help obstetric care providers better understand abnormal blood pressure in pregnant women.Related StoriesCarbohydrate plays important role in regulating blood pressure, research suggestsGenetic variants may be linked with high blood pressure among blacksNew ACC/AHA guidelines could improve detection of gestational hypertensionResearchers analyzed medical records from nearly 3,000 pregnant women from four sites in Baltimore, Maryland. The first-trimester blood pressure for each woman was classified as one of the following: 1.) normal, 2.) hypertensive using the AHA/ACC criteria, or 3.) hypertensive using the ACOG criteria. The findings suggest that the ACOG criteria identify women at the highest risk for preeclampsia and preterm birth. However, the ACOG criteria does not capture women who are at a moderately elevated risk for preeclampsia and preterm birth. This “high normal” or intermediate cohort is identified when using the AHA/ACC guidance.”High blood pressure in pregnancy can result in serious maternal and neonatal complications” said Kristin Darwin, MD, first author of the abstract and second year resident at Johns Hopkins. “Our study results suggest that obstetric care providers need more information to better understand the potential implications for ‘high normal’ blood pressure as it relates to risks and management during pregnancy.”Source: read more

Study finds link between depression in 20s linked to memory loss in

first_img Source: Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Mar 21 2019A new large-scale longitudinal study carried out by University of Sussex psychologists has found a clear link between episodes of depression and anxiety experienced by adults in their twenties, thirties and forties, with a decrease in memory function by the time they are in their fifties. The study, published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, is the first of its kind to look at the relationship between depressive symptoms experienced across three decades of early-mid adulthood and a decline in cognitive function in midlife.The Sussex psychologists analyzed data from the National Child Development Study, which was established in 1958 with a cohort of over 18,000 babies and followed participants from birth into childhood and through to adulthood. The Sussex psychologists found that an accumulation of symptoms experienced by participants over the three decades provided a strong indicator of a linear decrease in memory function by the time the adults were fifty.They found that one episode of depression or anxiety had little effect on the memory function of adults in midlife, regardless of which decade it was experienced, but that once the episodes increased to two or three over the course of the three decades, that this predicted a steady decrease in the participant’s memory function by the time they reached fifty.This, the psychologists from the EDGE Lab at the University of Sussex argue, highlights an opportunity to protect future memory function by promoting mental health interventions amongst young adults and they are calling on the UK government to invest in the mental health of young adults as a preventative measure to protect the future brain health of our aging population.Dr Darya Gaysina, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Sussex said: “We found that the more episodes of depression people experience in their adulthood, the higher risk of cognitive impairment they have later in life. This finding highlights the importance of effective management of depression to prevent the development of recurrent mental health problems with long-term negative outcomes.Related StoriesScientists describe microbiome composition in patients suffering from IBD and PSCCPAP treatment for sleep apnea can improve depression symptomsTeens who can describe negative emotions are better protected against depression”We’d therefore like to see the government investing more in the mental health provision for young adults, not only for the immediate benefit of the patients, but also to help protect their future brain health.”As well as memory, the psychologists also assessed verbal fluency, information processing speed and accuracy scores of the participants once they turned fifty. Encouragingly, episodes of depression and anxiety had little impact on the latter four areas of cognitive function but the associated loss of memory suggests that depressive symptoms experienced in early adulthood could predict dementia in older adulthood.Previous research carried out by the EDGE lab at the University of Sussex had found a relationship between depressive symptoms experienced in older adulthood and a faster rate of cognitive decline, but this is the first time that such a large and UK nationally representative sample has been able to make this link in the first three decade of adulthood.University of Sussex Psychology PhD student Amber John said: “We knew from previous research that depressive symptoms experienced in mid adulthood to late adulthood can predict a decline in brain function in later life but we were surprised to see just how clearly persistent depressive symptoms across three decades of adulthood are an important predictor of poorer memory function in mid-life.”With the publication of this research, we’re calling for the government to invest in mental health provision to help stem the risk of repeated episodes of depression and anxiety. From an individual’s perspective, this research should be a wake up call to do what you can to protect your mental health, such as maintaining strong relationships with friends and family, taking up physical exercise or practicing mindfulness meditation – all of which have been shown to boost mental health. Then of course, seeing your GP for advice if you feel you need help with depression or anxiety.”last_img read more
