first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola (C-R) celebrates with midfielder Phil Foden (C-L) at the end of the English Premier League football match against Manchester United on December 10, 2017 © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 12 – Pep Guardiola has defended Manchester City’s celebrations after the Premier League leaders beat fierce rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford, saying they were “definitely not” over the top.United boss Jose Mourinho was unhappy with City’s reaction after their 2-1 win on Sunday and made his feelings known outside the visitors’ dressing room on the way to his post-match interviews. In the ugly scenes following the game, Mourinho reportedly had milk and water thrown at him and City assistant coach Mikel Arteta sustained a cut to his head.City and United are holding internal investigations and have until 1800 GMT on Wednesday to present their accounts to the Football Association.The governing body will then determine whether there is enough evidence to pursue charges against specific individuals and/or the clubs themselves.Guardiola admitted he encouraged his players to celebrate but said they were not extravagant, adding they were confined to the visitors’ dressing room.“I encouraged the players to celebrate… but of course inside the locker room,” he said.“We have huge respect for our opponents, not just for Manchester United, all the opponents. Football and life is not about when we lose, (then) you have to accept the defeat.”Guardiola was asked if there was anything extravagant about City’s celebrations that might have provoked a reaction from United but he replied: “No, definitely not. Believe me, definitely not.“It was the same as the Southampton game. It was 96 minutes and something like that but were ready. We were happy. Believe me, we were happy.“We won a derby against Manchester United. At that the moment the biggest rival we have to win it. So people expect we are not going to celebrate? No, we celebrate.”“And after what happened, happened,” he added. “Hopefully it cannot not happen again. What happened, we make the statement to the FA investigation and they are going to decide.”City’s win at Old Trafford took them 11 points clear of United, their nearest challengers at the top of the table.Victory away to Swansea City on Wednesday would give them a record 15th consecutive Premier League win.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Phillip Johnson Re-Buries Darwin

first_imgDarwin may still rule from the grave, but Phillip Johnson has good reason to hope Darwin’s ghost will decay with the old evolutionist’s interred bones.  A father of the intelligent design movement, Johnson wrote and spoke and influenced many with his focus on the linch pin of Darwinism, its insistence on undirected natural processes.  It’s the 20th anniversary of the publication of Johnson’s highly influential book Darwin on Trial, and the Discovery Institute, an ID think tank, has just launched a new website and series to re-popularize Johnson’s impact. The website is DarwinOnTrail.com, featuring a biography, book list, articles, news and multimedia.  A series of articles on Johnson, including video clips, can be found on Evolution News & Views: Darwin on Trail 20 Years Later, Phillip Johnson Reflects on Darwin on Trial Anniversary, and New Website Celebrates Darwin on Trial in its 20th Anniversary.  More articles will be forthcoming during the week. If you’re new to Phillip E. Johnson, start with the short intro video to get an idea of why he is important.  Then watch a 90-minute speech he gave in his prime posted at Evolution News & Views to appreciate his cogent, insightful, articulate explication of the central issues in the Darwin vs design debates.(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

In children with low levels of physical activity, it is associated with increased body mass index” (Karatzi, K., Moschonis, G., Choupi, E., Manios, Y., 2018).What are great breakfast options? The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggest these breakfast ideas to “power up with breakfast” (Gordon, B., 2018):OatmealYogurt ParfaitBreakfast SmoothieToaster wafflePita egg sandwichBanana roll upBagel and veggiesEnglish muffinOverall, there are many benefits to eating breakfast, research has shown that people who eat breakfast are more likely to have balanced diets than those who don’t, they are less likely to be overweight and have reduced risk of diseases like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, (Brost, B., 2018).Do you eat breakfast daily?

Durham admits Bolts came out ‘lazy’ in Game 1 loss

first_imgBrace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC PBA IMAGESLUCENA — “We’re just kinda lazy.”That was Allen Durham’s simple explanation on the heels of Meralco’s disappointing 87-102 defeat to Ginebra in Game 1 of the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals here.ADVERTISEMENT He did give credit to the Gin Kings’s stupendous effort on both ends of the floor in the series opener, saying, “They just came out the better team tonight. They beat us by a lot.”The Bolts made a run in the third quarter and sliced what was once a 17-point lead to as low as four, 71-75 late in the frame, but still sputtered in the end game.“We were off for a little bit, so in the second half, I played a little bit better and we actually fought back in the game. But we had some crucial turnovers and that just killed us. If you turn the ball over against a team like this, they’ll run out and it’s not gonna end well for you,” he said.Durham now shifts his focus to Game 2, where Meralco aims to tie the series a game apiece on Sunday.“We just got to get back to work, try to make the necessary corrections, and get ready for Sunday,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Ateneo stops Adamson on its tracks, bags 8th straight win Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  View comments The Bolts struggles were seen all over, from their unusually low 23-percent shooting from three and 39-percent field goal clip, to their 59-40 disadvantage in rebounds.“We didn’t play our game well tonight. We didn’t shoot the ball well at all. You can’t beat a team like Ginebra and not shoot the ball well,” he said. “The whole conference we’ve been rebounding really well, and for whatever reason, we let them grab 22 offensive rebounds.
