Fekir, who can play in both midfield or attack, is set to fill the creative void left by the January departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.The 24-year-old is part of the France squad for the upcoming World Cup.And Liverpool are keen to close the deal before Fekir jets off to Russia following France’s final warm-up friendly against the United States on Saturday.“Talks between the clubs could conclude on Friday about a deal that may amount to 60m euros,” reported the BBC.Fekir scored 24 goals this season to help qualify Lyon for the Champions League by finishing third in Ligue 1.Liverpool, though, have much higher ambitions after missing out on a sixth European Cup success by losing 3-1 in the Champions League final to Real Madrid on May 26.As well as going one step further in the Champions League, Liverpool are aiming to close the gap on Premier League champions Manchester City to end a 28-year wait since they last won the English title.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

BY EMMET RUSHE: Before we begin, my next session of classes kicks off next Monday the 15th.There are limited places available and if you would like to book a place, drop me a message through the link below.Over the last few weeks I have been giving you some hints and tips to help you to achieve your goals this year. They were easy to follow and had different options for success depending on your current situation and where you are in regards to your nutrition and your health.But, all of these things are useless unless you know one thing and that thing is your ‘Why?’.If you ask someone what they wanted in regards to their health or their weight, they will more than likely have an answer.The thing is, their answer can often be materialistic and have no real purpose. Yes it may be something that they ‘want,’ but unless they know why they actually want it, there will be no driving force to help them to achieve what they want.If you are confused, don’t worry, I am going to make it clear for you to understand.Situation 1;John wants to lose weight.He has decided that he would like to lose 2 stone.He joins a gym and starts to eat a bit healthier.After the first week he has 2lbs off and he isn’t overly impressed; all of that hard work and only 2lbs?Later, the next week, his mates ring and want John to head out the next weekend.John decides to go and makes a weekend of it.His diet and exercise goes out the window, but it’s only a weekend and he has been good all week.When John weighs himself on Monday, he is up 1lb.Unimpressed by last week’s weight loss and the fact that he is up 1lb this week, John gives up and goes back to his old ways.John set out a goal for himself and assumed that by starting to do a bit of exercise and eating a bit better he would get instant results.When things got a bit tough, John’s goal, his “why?”, wasn’t strong enough to keep him on track with what he wanted and he gave up.Situation 2;John is overweight.He goes to the doctor and is told that he has onset diabetes, high blood pressure and could end up with a heart condition.Shocked by the results, John joins the gym the following day and starts eating better in order to help with his weight.He has 2lbs off the first week and is happy to see the weight finally coming down.His friends are having a party the following weekend, but he is determined to succeed this time and he wants to have a better quality of life when he is older.You might be looking at this example and thinking that he has to lose the weight, his doctor told him to.But that isn’t the reason he is determined to succeed.John is determined to succeed because he knows what his ”why?” is.His “why?” is, he wants to improve his health. He doesn’t want to become diabetic and have a list of health problems when he gets older.John doesn’t want to die.Now this is an extreme case, and not everyone will have such a strong reason for them to achieve their goals.How then do we find our “why?” You have to ask yourself that very question.You have to find out what your actual “why?”is.Wanting to lose 2 stone is not your “why?”.Wanting to lose 2 stone because you haven’t had a relationship in over a year is a “why?”. Wanting to lose 2 stone because you want to be able to play with your kids is your “why?”.Wanting to lose 2 stone because you are no longer able to walk up the stairs to your top floor apartment is your “why?”.Your “why?”has to be stronger than all of the things that could crop up to steer you off course.The pain you currently feel for the situation you are in, has to be greater than the pain you will feel when you give up all of the things that are making you overweight or unhealthy.If this isn’t the case it will be very easy to lose track of what you want and why you really want it.So, what is your goal?Once you have established this, ask yourself why you want it.Ask it 5 times and delve deep to find your actual answer.Your actual “why?” will be what will drive you to achieve your goal.It will keep you on track no matter what situation or setback crops up.And remember that your “why?” is your “why?”It is a personal choice and you shouldn’t let anyone try and influence your choice becauseIt will lead to your success.#TrainSmartFor more information, contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118?ref=hl* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: WHAT IS YOUR WHY? was last modified: February 8th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:emmet rushefitness column
Looking to adopt a pet? You should have checked out the Dog-Gone Cat-Astrophy Adoptathon last weekend at the East Valley Animal Shelter in North Hollywood. Missed it? No worries. The Los Angeles Animal Services Department now keeps city shelters open on weekends. The schedule makes sense: Most would-be pet owners can’t make it to shelters during the week. They have jobs; their kids have school. Opening up the shelters on weekends helps facilitate adoptions, which is good for the animals, the owners and the city alike. It should also help to cut down on the number of animals euthanized at city shelters.

PITTSBURGH, Pa. — For the first half-hour of Saturday’s game, it looked like a continuation of what transpired a day earlier for the A’s: Their bats were alive, and they couldn’t stop hitting.Then, all of a sudden, the spigot shut off. After scoring three runs on five hits in the first inning — all with two outs — the A’s managed four hits and one run the rest of the way.The offensive disappearance ultimately cost the A’s a chance to win back-to-back games for the first time since sweeping …
Tags:#mobile#news#Video Services#web Along with today’s launch of HTC’s latest flagship phone, the powerful HTC Sensation, the Taiwan-based mobile handset maker debuted a new video marketplace called “HTC Watch.” This iTunes-like store will offer TV shows, movies and trailers through a pre-installed mobile application that will ship first on the Sensation. The TV shows and movies will be available for both rental and purchase, and will be paid for via either carrier billing or credit card, depending on your mobile operator.The service uses progressive download technology, says HTC, which means your content will start playing almost immediately. This is different from the iTunes model, which requires users to download the full file before being able to view the video.HTC Watch, a Video MarketplaceIn early reviews, HTC’s Watch app is said to be speedy and responsive, with videos that start playing within 10 seconds of purchase.The new service grew out of HTC’s purchase of Saffron Digital back in February 2011 for $48.5 million. Saffron was known best for its video optimization technology, which allowed for streaming video delivery across different types of mobile handsets.The goal behind HTC’s investment was to enable the handset manufacturer to further differentiate its devices through improved user experiences that ship on top of the underlying Android software.This, it should be noted, is competitor Samsung’s strategy as well.In March, Samsung revealed four new Hubs – branded app portals it plans to install on new Android devices, including its Galaxy S II smartphones and Galaxy Tab tablet PCs. The hubs allow Samsung users to interact with music, media, e-books and social networking content.Smartphone Gets Smarter Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces sarah perez What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … As for the HTC’s latest gadget itself, the HTC Sensation 4G is a high-end smartphone that forgoes the traditional wide screen for a thinner, longer screen. The phone offers impressive specs, including a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch Super LCD screen with a 960×540 display, a dual-LED flash for its 8-megapixel camera and support for 1080p HD video. In the U.S., the phone will be available on T-Mobile (supporting T-Mobile “4G,” meaning HSPA+), in Europe on Vodafone and on other, unannounced carriers in Asia.The Sensation will run Google’s latest version of Android, code-named Gingerbread (Android 2.3.2) plus an updated version of the HTC Sense user interface. The new Sense UI will now offer customizable lockscreens which display photos, social networking updates, and weather or stock alerts. It will also bring new 3D effects, widgets, improved animations and updates to core apps. In particular, AllThingsD recently noted that the update will improve the issue of “shutter lag,” a common ailment on smartphones where the time between pushing the button and snapping the photo is delayed. For those taking pictures of kids or pets, this may be the most welcome improvement of all.There’s no word yet on when other HTC phones may receive the update Sense UI or the HTC Watch app. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology
footballI-LeagueIgor Stimacindian football First Published: November 21, 2019, 7:31 PM IST New Delhi: India national football coach Igor Stimac on Thursday made a surprise appearance at the launch of the 2019-20 season of the I-League that was held in New Delhi. Stimac brought out the I-League trophy at the end of the event after the teams for the new season had been introduced.”I’m here to show that the I-League is as important as the ISL (Indian Super League). I’m here to send the players who are participating in the I-League the message that all those who have an Indian passport are possible candidate for the Indian team,” Stimac told reporters. Stimac’s other intention, while left unsaid, was very clearly to provide a perspective on the Indian team’s recent results at the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The positivity that came with the point that they managed to secure away from home to free-scoring Asian champions Qatar was followed by draws at home and away against lower ranked opposition Bangladesh and Afghanistan respectively and a recent 0-1 defeat to Oman.Stimac has been trying to make the team play a possession-based brand of football and said that while the team was disappointed with the results, it doesn’t undermine their belief in their style.The Croat said that despite injuries to the likes of Sandesh Jhingan, Rowllin Borges, Pronay Halder, India are in a better position in the qualifiers now than they were ahead of Russia 2018.”We need to be positive and the simple reason is the facts. In the last world cup qualifiers, we had five consecutive defeats. Now we have two defeats and three draws. In the last qualifiers after five games, we had zero points. Now we have three.”We have more games to come and we are on our way to achieving what we promised, which is competing at the Asian Cup, doing better than before once we get there, preparing the team for the future and going into the next qualifiers with higher expectations,” he said.Stimac said that there is a dearth of good strikers in the country. Save for the game against Qatar, in which the priority was clearly to stop the opposition from scoring, India created a number of good scoring opportunities in all of their qualifiers. And yet, they only have three goals to show for their efforts with even the otherwise dependable Sunil Chhetri missing easy chances.”Why do you expect (the team) to score goals at the international level if we don’t have strikers in the league scoring goals. I don’t have the players on a daily basis, I work with them five days before the game,” he said. The former Croatia centre-back, however, reckons that upside of the time he has spent with the team thus far is that they are creating chances.”India is no longer a team that goes somewhere and fears the opponent. No way. We go without fear, to play football and face the opponent never mind who that is. We are not sitting inside our box and fighting for our lives. We are there trying to play football, whoever it may be on the other side. New brave India with a heart and courage to play football, upgrading your game, bringing and developing new talent in the team, that’s the only way,” he asserted.
