Research first established the reality of the fear of success, of reaching one’s goals, a couple of decades ago. The findings, at the time, related to fear of success in women, and the results proved incredibly controversial.Since then, however, most scientists and psychologists have come to agree that the fear of success exists for both men and women. Fear of success is similar to the fear of failure. They have many of the same symptoms, and both kinds of fear hold you back from achieving your dreams and goals.Signs of Fear of SuccessThe biggest problem for many people is that their fear of success is largely unconscious. They just don’t realize that they’ve been holding themselves back from doing something great. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Seville, Spain | AFP | Lionel Messi rescued Barcelona’s unbeaten season on Saturday as the La Liga leaders scored twice in the last three minutes to snatch a 2-2 draw at Sevilla.Messi came off the bench with his team two goals down at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as Luis Suarez pulled one back in the 88th minute, before the Argentinian struck the equaliser a minute later.Barcelona had not lost a league game this term, or in 13 months, but finishes from Franco Vazquez and Luis Muriel looked to have sealed Sevilla a stunning victory.But Messi came up trumps again and he celebrated his goal, a bending long-range strike into the bottom corner, by rushing to the jubilant coaching staff and substitutes on the touchline.He had been left out of the starting line-up due to a hamstring complaint, with coach Ernesto Valverde perhaps keeping one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final against Roma.But he still made the decisive intervention even if Barca’s draw means Atletico Madrid can cut the gap at the top to nine points by beating Deportivo La Coruna at home on Sunday.Sevilla, meanwhile, are still 13 points adrift of the top four, havng played a game more than Valencia, and must recover in time for their own Champions League clash against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.They would have been deserving winners here and, in truth, could have been out of sight had Muriel and Vazquez finished any number of dangerous breaks in the second half.Sevilla were the better side for the opening half an hour and took a deserved lead in the 36th minute when Joaquin Correa shuffled into the area and chipped a cross into Vazquez. He poked a weak finish but it was just enough to beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen.The hosts doubled their lead when Ever Banega’s stinging shot was pushed out too centrally by Ter Stegen, allowing Muriel to take a touch and guide the ball into the corner.Messi came on for Ousmane Dembele just before the hour mark but Sevilla could have been three up, Jesus Navas missing the best chance as his one-on-one was cleared off the line by Gerard Pique.They were made to pay the price as Suarez turned in from close range before the ball rolled tantalisingly out to the left foot of Messi, and he drilled it into the corner. – Bale pushes case –Earlier, Gareth Bale made a strong case for a starting spot against Juventus by scoring twice in Real Madrid’s 3-0 victory over Las Palmas as Cristiano Ronaldo was rested.Bale’s double in Gran Canaria served as a timely reminder to coach Zinedine Zidane, with the trip to Turin for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals to come on Tuesday.Karim Benzema had doubled Real’s lead before half-time as Los Blancos moved just one point behind second-placed Atletico. Las Palmas stay 18th, seven points adrift of safety.The only worry for Zidane was the sight of Nacho hobbling off in the first half, with what appeared to be a hamstring problem.“Everything is positive except one thing, the injury of Nacho,” Zidane said. “He is not happy. It is a concern but hopefully only little and the rest is all good.”Bale opened the scoring with a trademark run and finish down the left before Benzema converted one penalty and then generously handed over a second, which the Welshman had earned himself.The question now is whether Zidane was suitably impressed to pick Bale in Italy.“We will see on Tuesday, I am happy for his performance,” Zidane said.Girona’s hopes of Europa League qualification took a knock after they were held to a 1-1 draw by struggling Levante. Athletic Bilbao also drew 1-1 at home to Celta Vigo.Share on: WhatsApp
Almost 54,000 people chose to ‘Get into golf’ during the summer months of April to September, inspired by England’s network of County Golf Partnerships (CGPs).That’s an increase of 47 per cent on the same period in 2012. The challenge now is to convert the growing interest in golf into regular, once-a-week participation.The six-month results from 31 Partnerships, which work to increase participation at grass roots level, are detailed in the latest CGP Impact Report from England Golf.During the period, CGP activities involved a total of 53,940 people, aged 14-years and over. Of these, 15,250 (28%) were involved in structured coaching sessions with PGA professionals, and 7518 (14%) in regular, once a week activity.Encouragingly, 35% of all participants were female. This compares very favourably with national figures which show that just 15% of all golfers are female.Another highlight of the report was news of almost 2000 new golf club memberships, worth up to £1.4million in subscriptions to clubs across England.Richard Flint, England Golf’s Club Services and Development Director, commented: “These results reflect the hard work and commitment of our County Golf Partnerships, which has created great interest in playing golf. Now, their goal must be to work closely with golf clubs to encourage more people to play the game more often. We all want to see many more golfers playing regular, once-a-week golf and enjoying the benefits of club membership.”The Partnerships have focussed on the 26-plus age group and their activities have been underpinned by the national ‘Get into golf’ marketing campaign, promoting their low-cost taster sessions and structured beginner courses.In this age group, just over 37,600 people have been inspired to try golf, with 11,362 (30%) following structured activities and 3753 (10%) taking regular once-a-week activity.The CGPs are also being supported by the newly appointed England Golf Disability Officer and are running an increasing number of disability golf projects. These involved over 2600 people in the six-month period and these projects are set to grow, particularly as partnerships are developed with national and local disability groups.Another rapidly developing area is the new project to increase golf participation in universities and colleges. Numbers are already significant and are expected to rise as the project becomes established.The CGPs’ achievements have a positive impact on the golf club economy. A total of 1963 new golf club memberships were reported by 26 Partnerships and, while these may include juniors, they have a value of more than £1.4m based on the average adult subscription.In addition, participants who go on to take further structured coaching, after their initial introduction, could be investing a further £2.5 million back into the game, based on a £200 spend per person.The CGP network is an integral part of the England Golf Partnership’s (EGP) Whole Sport Plan for golf, which is supported by Sport England National Lottery funding. The Partnerships received an investment of £528,294 from the EGP over the six months, April to September 2013.Image © Leaderboard Photography 17 Dec 2013 County Partnerships inspire over 50,000 to Get into golf

Powered by Firework In the last two decades, the cricket scene in India has been undoubtedly shaped on the ideals of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. The Men in Blue’s hall of fame is revered as one of the greatest cricketers of all time if not the best, and even today’s cricketers aspire to reach the potential to become next to the ‘little master’. But who does Sachin himself pick to be the most similar to him? Surprise, its not Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma, noone from his homeland even, its Aussie sensation Marnus Labuschagne!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/ANI/BCCISince stepping into Test cricket back in 2018, the South Africa born Marnus Labuschagne has been setting himself up as a prodigy in the Australian cricket team. His rise to fame happened in last year’s Ashes, after coming on as a substitute for an injured Steve Smith in the second test. In the whole series, Labuschagne scored a total of 353 runs, with four half centuries.In a recent interview, Sachin Tendulkar was asked about which current batsman he would resemble himself, and Labuschagne’s name came up.Advertisement “I happened to be watching the second Test match (Ashes) at Lord’s between England and Australia. When Steve Smith got injured, I saw Labuschagne’s second innings,” Sachin told reporters.At Lord’s, Labuschagne scored a stunning 59 runs with eight boundaries, and immediately grabbed Sachin’s attention.Advertisement He continued: “I was sitting with my father-in-law. I saw Marnus get hit off the second ball from Jofra Archer and, post that, the 15 minutes he batted, I said, This player looks special.” he added.“His footwork is so precise. So he would be the one I would say,” it was the youngster’s amazing footwork that Sachin found amusing, and its the very thing he could relate to himself with.“Footwork is not physical, it’s mental. If you’re not thinking positively in your mind, then your feet don’t move. That clearly indicated to me that this guy is mentally strong because if you’re not, your feet will not move.” the 46 year old concluded.Following the Ashes, the 25 year old totalled an astounding 896 runs against Pakistan and New Zealand. With an amazing Test batting average of 63.43, he earned his first limited overs call up in January in the ODI series against India.Also read-Aussie batting sensation Marnus Labuschagne names Virat Kohli amongst his role models!Sachin Tendulkar feels 4-day Test Cricket won’t do justice to spinners Advertisement

The Raiders have made little progress in a 3-11 season … ALAMEDA — Derek Carr didn’t wince when the issue of pass protection was brought up, but could have hardly been blamed if he had.“To be honest, man, going into season, my No. 1 goal, the No. 1 thing I prayed about, was just to finish healthy,” the Raiders quarterback said Thursday. “I didn’t know I was going to get hit the most I ever have. I don’t think any of us saw that happening.”Instead, it’s been target practice.
“A woman of fortitude”, this is the centenary theme bestowed upon Albertina Sisulu as the country celebrated her profound legacy she left behind in 2018.

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Aaron Swartz#Congress#FISA#PIPA#privacy#security#SOPA The Senate will be taking on much-needed digital rights legislation in the new 113th Congress, including requiring law enforcement to have warrants before poking around online communications.In a speech at Georgetown University Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt). stressed the need for defending civil liberties, protecting privacy, improving transparency and making a push to require a warrant before law enforcement has carte blanche to read people’s emails, social media messages and other modes of online communication.We’re Trusting These Guys?Congress has been questioned of late for implementing some eyebrow-raising initiatives that have thrown the Fourth Amendment under the bus and seemingly worked towards the opposite of Leahy’s plans (think FISA, the Video Privacy Protection Act, and half a dozen other problematic regulations). But if Leahy has his way, this new Congress could create legislation to help both consumers and creators protect their data. Leahy, who voted against FISA and was the chief proponent of last year’s U.S. patent law reform, may be the right man to push these bills along.In his speech, Leahy expressed concern over the potential loss of privacy that comes with the expanding use of drones in civilian life. The Federal Aviation Administration predicts that by the end of the decade, 30,000 commercial and government drones could be flying over U.S. skies. With that outcome literally on the horizon, Leahy plans on making drones the subject of Congressional hearings, indicating that legislators need to focus to make sure that technology will not be used to erode peoples’ privacy.“I am concerned about the growing use of drones by Federal and local authorities to spy on Americans here at home,” he said Wednesday. “We make a tragic mistake thinking that merely giving up more and more of our privacy will make us safer. It will not. Security and liberty are both essential in a free society, and we cannot forsake one for the other.”Leahy also spoke about insuring transparency, specifically referring to press freedoms. The son of Vermont printers said he has “concerns about the press being shut down.” While he’s against the release of classified government documents (think WikiLeaks), he says he will work to “make sure that legislative efforts to prevent classified leaks does not infringe upon our fundamental freedoms, including freedom of the press.”It’s a pretty tricky balance Leahy is striking here, but this may be a way of saying he doesn’t support penalizing journalists who publish formerly privileged documents.Walling Off Our DataThe last, and perhaps most important, tenet of Leahy’s plan was a promise to update outdated cyber security laws, specifically the 27-year-old Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). Right now the ECPA gives police and government agencies the ability to read people’s emails and digital communications – without a warrant.Leahy, who turns 73 in March, has said the reason he’s stayed chairman of the Judiciary Committee is to reform ECPA. He says electronic documents should have the same legal protection as paper documents. It won’t be easy to fix this, but he’s making it a top priority.“It is going to be a fight,” he said in his speech. “But I think people are realizing they don’t have to give up their ability to use the Internet while at the same time guarding their freedom.”What The Speech Didn’t SayHowever, for all the good will towards modifying these laws, a few major items were missing from Leahy’s speech. Another potential change to the ECPA is currently on the table in the Senate, one which would require all text messages to be archived and available to law enforcement. This under-the-radar item is a proposal and yet to be brought to the Congressional floor. Let’s hope Leahy can muster enough support to put the kibosh on this proposed legislation.And let’s not forget the thousand pound elephant in the room: Very much missing from the speech was an update on whether Congress will push for new versions of SOPA and PIPA. Leahy himself seems to have one foot in the pool and one out when you look at his record. This is the Senator who wrote PIPA and COICA (Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act). Yet he was also behind a failed FISA amendment reform that would have shortened the law and decreased the enforcement period to three years — which would have been good. Based on this track record, either he erred and learned from these past mistakes…or we’re all buying what he’s selling. And it’s not worth it. Fingers crossed the truth is the former, not the latter. Today, Friday, is Internet Freedom Day. And as the the world celebrates the life of the too-soon-departed Aaron Swartz and the one year anniversary of the Internet blackout victory against SOPA and PIPA, big change looms. Let’s hope Leahy has our best interests at heart when it comes to protecting our privacy.

David Curry French aerospace giant Airbus wants to have an autonomous car in the air by the end of the year, according to the group’s chief executive, Tom Enders.Airbus claims the autonomous flying car will alleviate traffic problems in major cities and could reduce infrastructure budgets for city planners, who won’t have to worry about bridges, traffic lights, or concrete roads.See also: Well, of course, Larry Page invested in two flying car startups“One hundred years ago, urban transport went underground, now we have the technological wherewithal to go above ground,” said Enders at the DLD tech conference in Munich. “We are in an experimentation phase, we take this development very seriously,”Airbus formed the Urban Air Mobility division last year, to start work on a prototype flying car. It hopes to test this by the end of the year, but Enders said it would most likely be 2020 before any commuters hop into a flying car.Flying cars aren’t choppersThe company also plans to build a semi-autonomous flying car, so the whole project isn’t gutted if regulations say a driver must be able to control the vehicle.Airbus has a new business plan for the flying cars, not at all like its commercial helicopters, which are sold at a price only few can afford. It wants to develop an Uber-like app for the flying cars, where commuters can rent the autonomous vehicle for a single ride.Interestingly, Uber also wants to have a service for flying cars, using Airbus’ concept.The flying car reality might only be a few years away, but with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) already struggling to regulate the drone market, it might be an intense fight to allow humans inside autonomous flying vehicles.
