5 Things Not to Do After a Breakup

first_img Tweet 1. Call him every time you think about him. If your ex pops into your head every seven minutes, we wouldn’t be too concerned. (After all, how can you not think about the guy when your song comes on/when you find his shirt in your laundry/when someone quotes a line from the last movie you saw together/when the woman in front of you at the deli orders a sandwich with his favorite deli meat.) But if you’re actually dialing your ex’s number every seven minutes, like von Stalkerson did, you need to reel in the crazy.2. Share every up and down of your emotional roller coaster on Facebook. That goes double for thinly veiled postings. Because, this just in: Evvverybody knows exactly what you’re talking about when you write, “Some people will always be a-holes” or “Everything happens for a reason”. And it makes you look like you haven’t moved on and won’t anytime soon. Repeat after us: Facebook is not my diary, Facebook is not my dairy, Facebook is not my diary…3. Get a haircut. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Go to the salon post-breakup and you could walk out looking like Javier Bardem in No Country For Old Men. What’s worse than being newly single? Being newly single with a bowl cut. Wait till you’re in a slightly less stressed zone before you make any major changes to your look. (That means avoiding tattoo parlors too, obviously.)4. Throw yourself into the arms of another guy. Let us be perfectly clear: We’re fine with you throwing yourself into the bed of another man (hey, enjoy your newfound sexual freedom); we just don’t think you should get all emotional with a new dude and jump right into another relationship. We know you’re aching to be half of a twosome again, but letting the proverbial body get cold first will seriously up the chances that your next relationship will last.5. Try to be “just friends” right away. We’ve developed an easy quiz to figure out if you’re ready to be his buddy. Would you be totally cool hearing him talk about a new girl he’s into? One point for yes. Two points for heeeell no. If you have more than one point, being friends is out of the question.by Zoe RudermanMSN Love Share Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! 51 Views   no discussions LifestyleRelationships 5 Things Not to Do After a Breakup by: – February 23, 2012last_img read more

Equality in the NBA

first_imgAll pro athletic leagues want you to believe that they have developed a way to provide equality for all cities who have a pro team.  I think the NBA still has a way to go.  When I wrote this article, the Golden State Warriors had finally lost their first game of the season after 24 wins.  Last years champs, behind the play of Stephen Curry, show that the human aspect of the game is still a factor.  The Davidson star is simply the best player in the NBA at this time, and his play has made the Warriors almost unbeatable.  On the other side of the coin, the Philadelphia 76ers have a record something like 2-30.  I don’t think they have received their equal share of basketball players just yet.  There are factors such as money, coaching ability, and draft skill that has to be taken into account.  Give the 76ers Steve Kerr and Stephen Curry and I think the two records might be reversed.last_img read more

FDA Lifts Restrictions on Mask Sanitizing Machine

first_imgThe F-D-A has lifted restrictions on a machine designed to sanitize up to 80-thousand masks for re-use every day.Thousands of protective masks used by hospital workers can be sterilized daily using the Ohio-made technology. Food and Drug Administration officials approved the use of Battelle’s Critical Care Decontamination System yesterday at the urging of Governor Mike DeWine and President Trump. The Columbus-based lab’s system uses hydrogen peroxide vapors to sterilize respirator masks.The machine is simply a metal shipping container with the ability to clean masks using a combination of pressure and hydrogen peroxide.But the company was being limited to just 10,000 masks a day, and they could only use them in Ohio. Governor Mike DeWine picked up the phone and called President Trump. After the call, the machines were approved for 80-thousand masks Sunday night. Not just for Ohioans but for people throughout the country.More machines are ready to be sent to Seattle, New York, and Washington, D.C.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: The first match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw Chennai Super Kings bundling out Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for just 70 runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Saturday. While both CSK skipper M.S. Dhoni and his RCB counterpart Virat Kohli said that the pitch wasn’t how they had expected it to be, former Australia and CSK opener Mathew Hayden called it “below standard”.The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has now asked the IPL franchises to prepare sporting wickets for the rest of the tournament.Speaking to IANS, a senior BCCI official said that while the board doesn’t interfere with the wickets prepared during the popular T20 league, it should not be heavily tilted towards either the batsmen or the bowlers.”The franchises have the freedom to prepare wickets without the interference of the BCCI, but the wickets should be sporting and not heavily titled in favour of either the batsmen or bowlers,” the official said.

In second year as captain, Madison native wrapping up dream-like career after enduring rough first year

first_imgThree seasons ago, Adam Burish and the rest of that year’s freshman class had two options: stay and play for the new head coach, Mike Eaves, with his grueling practice regimen and tough attitude, or quit.A lot of players on that year’s squad found Eaves’ style a far cry from that of the man Eaves replaced, Badger coaching legend Jeff Sauer, but quitting wasn’t really ever an option for some, especially for Burish.”That thought never even crossed my mind,” Burish said of the possibility of leaving the Badgers. “It never even came within a hundred miles of my mind.”The Madison native grew up idolizing his hometown team. He sat in the stands every Friday and Saturday to cheer on the Badgers of years’ past, and he dreamed of one day putting on one of those cardinal and white jerseys and skating in front of fans like him. Once he had realized that dream, he wasn’t giving that up for anybody.From a class that once held eight players, five of them — Eaves’ “Junction Boys” — stuck it out through a full four years at UW, despite a freshman season that tested them to wit’s end.”If you know those other four guys in there, it’s a hard-nosed, tough, hard-working group of guys,” Burish said of his senior classmates. “The attitude of us, the way we were, is whatever you tell us to do, we’re going to do it, and we’re going to do it better than anybody else.”The Junction Boys were formed in that first year, and their leader was molded out of their toil and the sacrifices those five athletes made. Burish stood out as the guy with all the qualities of a good leader, and he was picked by his teammates to be team captain in only his junior year.”He’s a hard worker, he’s a man of his word, he can go out and do what he says and say what he does,” Eaves said of Burish. “He has an ability to look over his shoulder in the locker room and see who needs a hug and who needs a kick in the fanny.”Burish has the rare ability to push players to their limits while remaining their friend. He makes himself available to everyone on the team, from freshmen on up, and he offers advice or an ear to remedy his teammates’ problems.He can also kick over a garbage can or two if the situation requires such actions.”Most importantly, he’s always upbeat and energetic. It’s a good attribute to have in a leader,” fellow senior Nick Licari said. “You know he’s always going to go out there and work hard, and he’s always going to speak up when need be.”Burish is the first person to share the credit for a win with his teammates and the first person to take the blame for a loss. He represents his team with pride and passion, and he looks out for his teammates first.”A good leader is someone who puts the guys in the dressing room above himself at times,” Burish said. “That’s one of the most important things that I try to do a lot.”Sometimes he lets his passion for his teammates and for the game take over against better judgment.Against Colorado College earlier this year, Burish made a late hit on CC forward Scott Thauwald that earned the senior a one-game disqualification. While the hit looked like a cold-blooded assassination to casual viewers, Burish was really trying to prevent Thauwald from laying a big hit on teammate Robbie Earl.”In his effort to try and help the team, he does go over the edge,” Eaves said of his captain’s emotions. “We have to sit down and talk about those things.”Burish recognizes that his emotions sometimes get the better of him, but he refuses to change his style of play. He believes there are even times when a well-timed penalty for the right reason can fire the team up, and his teammates would be more than willing to kill off a two-minute penalty if it gives them some momentum in a game.”With me, what you see is what you get, and I’m an emotional kid,” Burish said. “At times do I maybe need to take a step back? Yeah, probably, but that’s one thing I’m never going to take away from my game.”He would be unwise to change the way he plays, as his style has brought him success not just as a leader but also as a player. Burish has improved his point total every year of his career, and he currently sits fourth on the team with 22 points.Never the most skilled player on the ice, Burish turns that emotion and energy into offense.Those emotions will continue to play out as Burish’s time as a Badger draws to a close. The Badgers play their last regular season home series at the Kohl Center this weekend, in front of the fans to whom Burish and his fellow seniors have brought so much joy. Badger fans will be saying goodbye to a hockey player that brought an unrivaled amount of enthusiasm to the rink every night — a player who played with his heart on his sleeve. “It’s going to be emotional,” Burish said. “The biggest thing is trying not to think about it too much. It’s been a dream for me to be here, and for these four years to fly by and have it be done, it’s emotional.”Not only for Burish but for those who have watched him grow into the Badger that he has become, it could be a tearjerker.last_img read more

William Hill confirms 700 shops to close following FOBT losses

Since then the company has seen a significant fall in gaming machine revenues, in line with the guidance given when the Government’s decision was announced in May 2018.”The impact of the decision is due to be felt across the UK and Irish racing industries, with the closure of shops set to result in a loss of up to £21 million in revenue for media rights holders. The statement continued: “A large number of redundancies is anticipated with 4,500 colleagues at risk. The Group will look to apply voluntary redundancy and redeployment measures extensively and will be providing support to all colleagues throughout the process.“Subject to the outcome of the consultation process, shop closures are likely to begin before the end of the year.”According to the UK Gambling Commission, William Hill currently owns 2,300 shops and employs 12,500 people. Earlier in the year, the bookmaker had recorded a seven per cent drop in retail revenues.At the time of the FOBT legislation being discussed, the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB) warned that the move would lead to a number of job losses across the UK betting industry.Earlier in the year, Ladbrokes had revealed that it had identified up to 1,000 betting shops which could face closure this year. The bookmaker explained that it would have to make cuts from ‘from Ayrshire to Essex’ at an estimated cost of approximately £50,000 per shop closure.last_img read more
