Mourinho praises goalscorer Sanchez but ticks off quiet fans

first_imgAfter first ticking off supporters following a home win against Leicester back in August, and then in programme notes before a clash with Everton a month later, Mourinho again felt the need to point out that the Old Trafford crowd is big, but shy.“It’s not Portsmouth,” he said. “I remember Portsmouth in the Premier League. It was such a small stadium that the atmosphere there was incredible. Here the atmosphere is a bit quieter, ours is not very enthusiastic but the players love playing here.“Paul is a fantastic player and no doubt for me one of the most talented players in the world but to sit on the bench for one day is not the end of the world.”Mourinho also used his post-match press conference to confirm that Marouane Fellaini is likely to be out until March after knee surgery.Ahead of kick-off, there was an impeccably observed minute’s silence to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster, which falls on Tuesday, before the first half ended goalless after a physical Huddersfield team did all they could to keep United out.Most of their tackles were borderline legal as Sanchez, Juan Mata and Antonio Valencia were all roughed up while one challenge on Scott McTominay was particularly harsh.Sanchez got into the game more as it progressed and tested Jonas Lossl from 20 yards but David Wagner’s side were determined to play for a point and often had all 11 men behind the ball to frustrate the home team.However, after the break, Huddersfield’s resistance ended, when Mata delivered an inch-perfect cross for Romelu Lukaku, who volleyed home from close range.Midway through the second half, Sanchez was clumsily fouled by Michael Hefele on the edge of the box and although his initial spot kick was saved, he calmly followed up the rebound to finish off Huddersfield as they fell into the bottom three for the first time this term.“We wanted to be stable and compact and frustrate Man United for as long as we could,” Wagner said. “Unfortunately, that was not long enough. Defensively I saw everything I wanted to see and work ethic, desire and togetherness.“Unfortunately we were not able to create defensive moments. In the end it was a fair result.”Share on: WhatsApp “He’s a humble guy who doesn’t forget where he started and I’m pretty sure when he was playing in Chile he had difficult places to play with difficult performers and he’s quite used to it.”Apart from Sanchez’s brilliance, the other talking point at Old Trafford was Mourinho’s decision to drop Paul Pogba following United’s damaging defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in midweek.Mourinho said there had been no falling out with Pogba but he has risked annoying United’s fans after again criticising the volume levels inside Old Trafford. Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho praised Alexis Sanchez after the former Arsenal man scored his first goal for his new club in a 2-0 win against Huddersfield Town at a “quiet” Old Trafford on Saturday.Entertainment was in short supply at Old Trafford despite the victory but Mourinho chided the home fans for not supporting his players loudly enough.However, one genuine positive for United was the performance of Chile international Sanchez, who shone brightest on an afternoon on which Huddersfield were not shy in targeting the slightly built Chilean.Yet despite watching his new signing get repeatedly clattered all afternoon, Mourinho said the goalscorer could handle it as United reduced the gap to Manchester City at the top of the Premier League to 13 points“Alexis is a fantastic player but not a prima donna,” Mourinho said.last_img read more

Trash and reality

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake That may sound obvious to everyone else, but in government where officials maintain such close relations with lobbyists, influence peddlers and campaign contributors, progress comes slowly. And to have a local government body finally own up to the fact that mountains of garbage, leaky gases and stinky fumes are detrimental to “the health, peace, comfort and welfare” of the surrounding community is a huge step, even if it is mostly symbolic. After all, by rejecting the consolidation, the county does little more than make BFI’s operations slightly more complicated. Two big dumps instead of a single giant one still produce all the same negative health and environmental effects. And that raises an obvious question: Now that local government is starting to come to terms with the need to stop dumping in our communities, what do we do instead? The solution, of course, is diversion – recycling more, shipping trash to dumps in the desert or converting energy to green power. But on these fronts, lip service is plentiful but action is lacking. For a case in point, look at the city of Los Angeles’ new, half-hearted attempt to bring recycling to its condominium and apartment dwellers, who, unlike those living in single-family homes, need not recycle. At last, local government in greater L.A. seems to be getting a glimmering of understanding of an obvious truth of modern existence: Garbage dumps and neighborhoods don’t mix. Now if only local officials would actually take decisive steps to end the environmental abomination. Last week, the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission took a small step by rejecting trash giant Browning-Ferris Industries’ application to turn the two parts of Sunshine Canyon Landfill – which operate separately, one part within city limits, one on county land – into a single megadump with a sole purpose to enhance the company’s profitability. Breaking with a long-standing local-government tradition of ignoring the impact the dump has on the Granada Hills community, the commission ruled that neighbors would be harmed by a consolidated dump. As a commission memo put it: “The requested use at the proposed location will adversely affect the health, peace, comfort and welfare of persons residing and working in the surrounding area.” Last week, the city’s Board of Public Works finally backed a plan to start offering recycling to these residents, which is a welcome step. But the plan is wholly inadequate. For starters, it wouldn’t charge building owners for the “free” recycling service, but would take the money from fees paid by waste haulers – an apparent violation of the principle that fees should directly pay for a service obtained. The program would also be voluntary, meaning that millions of tons of trash would go unrecycled, and continue to end up in Sunshine Canyon. Worst of all, the program that won’t have any impact wouldn’t even take effect until 2008. The city is going to need to do a lot more to show it’s serious about not dumping in our communities. A good measure will be what officials decide to do with the various bids that have come in from trash haulers seeking to cart Los Angeles’ waste out to the desert. Now that we can all admit that urban dumping must stop, we need to work to make that happen.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Deployment and Single Parenting: A snapshot into the Experience of Navy Moms

first_imgThis post was written by Rachel Dorman, M.S. and Kacy Mixon, PhD, LMFT. Both are members of the MFLN Family Development (FD) team which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families. Find out more about the Military Families Learning Network FD concentration on our website, on Facebook, on Twitter, YouTube, and on LinkedIn. By Rachel Dorman, M.S. & Kacy Mixon, PhD, LMFT[Flickr, 257th MPs prepare for deployment to Afghanistan by Minnesota National Guard, CC BY-ND 2.0] Retrieved on September 23, 2015The deployment of a parent is a difficult process for any family to go through and research shows it can be particularly hard on single parent families. Kelley, Doane, and Pearson (2011), sought to learn more about Navy mothers experiences [1]. They examined whether the deployment process impacts military children differently depending on whether they are being raised by a single or married mother.  Surveys about children’s internalizing (e.g. sadness, worrying) and externalizing (e.g. aggression, noncompliance) behaviors that both mothers and child caregivers (i.e. babysitters, child care centers, and relatives) filled out were analyzed by the researchers.Their analysis revealed that non-married mothers’ psychological adjustment significantly influence their children’s internalized and externalized behaviors at pre-deployment and at post deployment. Thus, children with single mothers who demonstrated poor psychological adjustment before being deployed had higher rates of internalized and externalized behavior at pre-deployment and post deployment. These same results were not found with married mothers. However, researchers did find that for married and non-married mothers the duration of time in the Navy predicted mothers’ psychological adjustment at pre-deployment. In fact, the more time married and non-married mothers spent in the Navy the better their psychological adjustment. The researchers concluded that there is a need for future research to focus on understanding the needs of non-traditional family forms within the military including the clinical needs of children. They also stress the need for further research exploring how children may be affected by a parent’s combat-related stress and injuries.References[1] Kelley, M., Doane, A., Pearson, M. (2011).

How to Become a Professional

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now The professional doesn’t believe that the time they spend in their chosen endeavor isn’t what makes them a professional. They know that there are others who have worked in their field for years—or decades—who are still not professionals. K. Anders Ericsson’s research on expertise doesn’t suggest that you become an expert in 10,000 hours. It states that you need 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, something very different from going through the motions without the intention of improving.Start with the intention to improve what you do, no matter how well you presently do things, and no matter how successful you are now.The professional continues to learn, to make new distinctions, to uncover new ideas and subtleties. The read books and articles from their field, or they listen to them on audio. They take courses and continue their education, working to discover new ideas, new choices, and new ways to do things. The professional believes there is more knowledge to uncover.Develop a personal and professional development plan that provides you with continuous education and continual growth.One of the defining characteristic of the professional is their preparation, their routines. They follow a pattern, or a system, or a process in preparing for what they do as a way to ensure successful outcomes. The professional doesn’t “wing it” or “fly by the seat of their pants.” The reason they are able to effectively improvise when necessary is because they have done the work to prepare, including knowing their outcome.Prepare and plan the work you do to ensure the outcomes are the best you are capable of producing and that allow you to adjust and improvise.There is value in reviewing your own performance, assessing what is working, what isn’t working, and what might need to change to produce better results. The professional recognizes when something isn’t working or when an approach has lost its effectiveness. They are critical of their own work and methods, which is what allows them to seek new ideas, new answers, and new approaches. The willingness to let go of what they believe and adopt new ones is how the professional gets better.Assess yourself, your beliefs, your approach, and your methods, taking in new beliefs, trying new strategies, and shoring up any deficiencies in your approach.A true professional holds themselves accountable for producing the highest quality outcomes. They raise the bar because they believe they are capable of improving their work and the outcomes they produce. The standard they hold isn’t an external standard or the industry standard. They don’t hold themselves to what another entity requires or “best practices.” The standard they set for themselves is internal, exceeding any external expectation.Raise your own personal standard for the work you do and the outcomes you produce.last_img read more
