Romero Solskjaer has brought happiness back to Man United

first_imgGoalkeeper Sergio Romero believes interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has boosted Manchester United’s confidence and brought back a “certain happiness”Since his appointment last month at Old Trafford, Solskjaer has gone on to match the legendary Sir Matt Busby’s record of winning all five of his opening games.Aside from that, United have also returned to their usual style of attacking football after deploying a rather conservative and unattractive style of football under former manager Jose Mourinho.And Romero believes that the results achieved under Solskjaer have given United a new-found level of confidence as they look to end the season with a top-four finish in the Premier League.“We’ve had a great run,” Romero told the club website .Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“Not just the results, but the way in which we have won the games as well. Scoring five goals in one match was a big boost to confidence and was really something.“What we’re showing now, after a great Christmas, is only right for a club of this stature, [it] proves what we can do. The run we’ve had over Christmas and the new year is a testament to that.”Romero added: “[The manager] knows what he wants to achieve – both for the club and us as individuals. On the pitch and within the club, he has made it very clear from the outset so we know the expectation of us inside the club and externally.“You can see he has brought to the club a certain happiness and it is going well.”The Red Devils will take on Tottenham on Sunday at Wembley in the Premier League.last_img read more

Protest In Soldotna Due To Satanic Invocation

first_imgWilliam Siebenmorgen, who flew from Pennsylvania to protest the prayer vigil: “These are just a few of the instances where God has defeated Satan. Whatever the results of the June 18 Rally of Reparation, God will be pleased with our public prayers of reparation. We want God’s blessings on America, not Satan’s curses. Lucifer is the eternal loser. Let’s keep him out.” Roughly 40 people held signs reading “reject Satan and his works” and “know Jesus and his love,”  outside the borough building. The borough then passed a resolution to amend their policy at their meeting on November 20 to broaden the scope of eligible invocation providers to better reflect the diversity of beliefs in the borough. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Last updated on June 21st, 2019 at 02:55 pmMany were shocked when they heard that a Satanic invocation would officially open the meeting at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly on Tuesday. Onlookers protested outside the borough building prior to the invocation at the assembly meeting. A member of the Satanic Temple, Iris Fontana, offered the invocation prompting walkouts by nearly a dozen people.center_img Fontana: “Let’s us cast aside our differences to use reason, logic, science and compassion to create solutions for the greater good for our community. It is done, hail Satan.” In October, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that the borough’s previous prayer policy violated the State Constitution. The lawsuit was brought on by the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska. The previous policy only allowed certain groups to deliver the invocation. Catholics from seven states flew to the Kenai Peninsula to pray a Rosary of reparation and protest against this public Satanic prayer.last_img read more

School Committee Accepts 100K Grant Donation To Strengthen STEM Extracurricular Programs Create

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — At a specially scheduled meeting, the Wilmington School Committee recently accepted a donation of $100,000 in the form of a grant from the Cummings Foundation.Wilmington High School AP Chemistry Teacher Julie Kim successfully applied for the grant through the Cummings Foundation’s annual “$100K For 100” charitable giving initiative.  Wilmington Public Schools will be the recipient of $33,333.33 per year over the next three years.The purpose of the grant is to provide “financial support to strengthen and build STEM extracurricular programs like the Engineering Career Club, the Science Club, and the Robotics Club at the High School and Middle School levels.”The Engineering Career Club is run under the guidance of WHS math teacher Ms. Steph Murray, a former engineer. The club, which has approximately 20 regular members, meets twice a month for two hours after school. Club members have previously designed, built and launched catapults. They’re currently learning about solar energy and other renewal resources, while designing and building tree-like structures to harness solar energy.The Science Club is run under the guidance of WHS science teacher Mrs. Michelle Hooper. The club meets once  a month on Fridays to run experiments and investigate science phenomenon. The Club has considered joining the North Shore Science League.The Robotics Club is attempting to start up under the guidance of WHS AP Physics Teacher Marlene King and WHS AP Chemistry Teacher Julie Kim.  The idea for the club came out of a discussion that took place in Kim’s AP Chemistry class.“Students and teachers are trying to figure out how to fundraiser for the very expensive robotics supplies and for new computers to write the codes and design the robots,” Kim wrote in her application, where she also noted that most of her AP Chemistry students are female, as are most of the science and math teachers at Wilmington High School and Middle School.“The teachers have a passion for sharing our loves of math and science with the students of our schools, but we’d especially love to encourage more female students to pursue these fields,” added Kim.Because of the grant Kim secured, a robotics club will, indeed, launch at Wilmington High School, and necessary supplies for the other two science clubs will be purchased.  Previously, the clubs’ resources were severely limited and based solely on the amount of money fundraised or contributed by students and teachers.“This grant is very exciting and great news for the Wilmington Public Schools,” announced Interim Superintendent Paul Ruggiero, after reading Kim’s grant application.Kim, unfortunately, could not attend the School Committee Meeting at which she was being recognized as she was stuck in traffic returning from the 8th Grade Science Field Trip to Fenway Park.  Kim will, however, be present at a reception held by the Cummings Foundation on Thursday, June 7 where she will be honored.Wilmington School Committee Chair Julie Broussard with WHS Chemistry Teacher & Grant Recipient Julie Kim after a recent meeting.(Photo courtesy of School Committee member Jennifer Bryson.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

After designing the mascots for the 2016 Paralympics, the company created its first TV project “Vinicius & Tom: Funny by Nature,” commissioned by Cartoon Network. The series was Cartoon Network’s highest-rated show in 2016 and helped the 2016 Rio games surpass all Olympic licensing records.After selling “Oswaldo” to Cartoon Network Latin America, Eboli co-directed and co-wrote the series’ first season. Recently, he and Canadian Graham Peterson pitched “Monster Pack” as part of the Nick Shorts program, where they were finalists.

Women found to be more susceptible to contagious yawning than men

first_img More information: Ivan Norscia et al. more than : gender bias supports the empathic nature of yawn contagion in , Royal Society Open Science (2016). DOI: 10.1098/rsos.150459AbstractPsychological, clinical and neurobiological findings endorse that empathic abilities are more developed in women than in men. Because there is growing evidence that yawn contagion is an empathy-based phenomenon, we expect that the female bias in the empathic abilities reflects on a gender skew in the responsiveness to others’ yawns. We verified this assumption by applying a linear model on a dataset gathered during a 5 year period of naturalistic observations on humans. Gender, age and social bond were included in the analysis as fixed factors. The social bond and the receiver’s gender remained in the best model. The rates of contagion were significantly lower between acquaintances than between friends and family members, and significantly higher in women than in men. These results not only confirm that yawn contagion is sensitive to social closeness, but also that the phenomenon is affected by the same gender bias affecting empathy. The sex skew, also found in other non-human species, fits with the female social roles which are likely to require higher empathic abilities (e.g. parental care, group cohesion maintenance, social mediation). The fact that female influence in social dynamics also relies on face-to-face emotional exchange raises concerns on the negative repercussions of having women’s facial expressions forcibly concealed. (Phys.org)—A trio of researchers with Università di Pisa, in Italy has found via observational study, that women are on average twice as likely to yawn after seeing someone else yawn, than are men. In their paper published in Royal Society Open Science the team describes how they carried out their five year study of yawing habits in people and what they learned as a result. Journal information: Royal Society Open Science Explore further Credit: Petr Kratochvil / public domain Citation: Women found to be more susceptible to contagious yawning than men (2016, February 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-02-women-susceptible-contagious-men.htmlcenter_img Psychopaths may not yawn along with you Everyone knows that yawning is contagious—one person yawning spontaneously can cause another person in the vicinity to yawn even if they are not tired or sleepy. Scientists still do not know why this happens, but it has also been documented in other animals—dogs for example have been seen to yawn after viewing a human being yawn. In this new effort, the researchers found that there is a gender difference in contagious yawning, and they suggest it is related to empathy.The study consisted of the three researchers noting yawning occurrences in the people around them as they lived their daily lives; whether at work, on a train, or sitting next to a family member—every yawn and the contagion it caused was duly noted and added to a database—all told they recorded 1,461 instances of contagious yawning. After five years, the researchers looked at the data and found confirmation of some prior findings, e.g. that yawning contagion becomes more likely when the people involved have closer social bonds—seeing a friend yawn, for example, is more likely to cause mimicking yawns than seeing a stranger do it. But they also found something that had not been noted before, namely, that women are much more susceptible to yawning contagion than are men.The researchers theorize that the difference between genders is tied to empathic abilities—women, they say, are naturally more inclined to empathize with others, especially those that are close to them. Some have suggested that contagious yawning is based on empathy—seeing someone else yawn causes other people to “feel” their tiredness, which causes them to yawn in return. If women are more empathetic, the researchers point out, it stands to reason that they would be more susceptible to empathetic based human behaviors such as yawning. © 2016 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.
