The Atlantic:“Friendships don’t just happen,” says William Rawlins, a professor of interpersonal communication at Ohio University. “They don’t drop from the sky.”Like any relationship, friendships take effort and work. But they’re often the last to receive that effort after people expend their energy on work, family, and romance. And as I’ve written before, as time goes on, friendships often face more hurdles to intimacy than other close relationships. As people hurtle toward the peak busyness of middle age, friends—who are usually a lower priority than partners, parents, and children—tend to fall by the wayside.…The psychologist John Gottman came up with the concept of “bids” in the 1990s. “Bids” are small requests for connection—anything from a smile, to attempting to start a conversation, to inviting your partner on a trip with your family. As Emily Esfahani Smith previously reported in The Atlantic, the more partners respond to each others’ bids by “turning toward” them—engaging and offering the requested connection—the stronger their relationship. The more they “turned away” from the bids, the more likely they were to get divorced, Gottman found.Read the whole story: The Atlantic More of our Members in the Media >

The Abbott Government’s disregard for the climate and the Great Barrier Reef is criminal, said the Australian Greens today as the Abbott Government approved the Abbot Point coal port expansion and the Curtis Island gas processing facility.“The Abbott Government has sacrificed the climate and the Great Barrier Reef for overseas mining companies with its approval today of the world’s largest coal port and another CSG plant in our Great Barrier Reef,” Senator Larissa Waters, Australian Greens environment spokesperson, said.“Tony Abbott has given the big mining companies exactly what they want and left the rest of us with coal for Christmas.“The Prime Minister is ignoring the World Heritage Committee’s warnings about the mass industrialisation of the Reef, and is inviting a World Heritage In Danger listing.“The coal to be mined from the Galilee Basin and exported through Abbot Point each year which will create more CO2 emissions a year than produced by both Denmark and Portugal combined.“The Abbot Point coal terminal expansion will see 3 million cubic metres of seabed dredged up and dumped in the Reef’s World Heritage waters.“Even though dredge spoil moves around once dumped, so can smother seagrass beds and coral, the location of dredge spoil dumping site hasn’t even been specified in the approval, which will alarm fishers and tourism operators alike.“And the Curtis Island CSG plant will lock in more water-destroying CSG mining and see even more ships exporting fossil fuels through the Reef to exacerbate climate change.“The big mining companies are being allowed to treat our Great Barrier Reef as a dumping ground for dredge spoil and a shipping super highway,” Senator Waters said.The Greens will seek to move the Abbot Point coal port approval tomorrow morning in the Senate as a Matter of Public Importance.[mappress]Press Release, December 10, 2013

The City assistant head coach answered questions from the local and national press along with defender Nathan Baker.Here’s what they had to say:
RUGBY LEAGUE BY SIMON KESLEP It was another fun-filled and recreational Meet and Greet gathering hosted by SP PNG Hunters on Saturday morning at the Oil Search National Football Stadium in Port Moresby. In attendance was a representative from the naming rights sponsor, SP Brewery managing director Ed Weggemans including other major and support sponsors. Also present to mingle with the Hunters squad and sponsors was the media who turned up fully attired in their sportswear and engage in few of the ball game sessions. Weggemans, in his remarks, acknowledged the presence of everyone who turned up and participated with the team. He said at times from sponsors perspective there are expectations towards the team (Hunters) in winning all the matches but it is up to the coaches and players to continue do what they do best -training and taking each game at a time. He also commended the team under the coaching guidance of new coach Matthew Church to lead yet again another squad into the 2020 Queensland Intrust Super Cup season. Church emphasized on after rugby league career opportunities for players. “You need to have plans for the future. It is a short period when you are playing or coaching. It is a short window of time to maximize opportunity so it is about giving them (players) life skills, education or qualifications work wise to send them out from Hunters whenever they leave – or whatever reason they are leaving and moving on for. “To be honest, if I just make them better football players then it is probably like I’m failing more job because need to make them better people,” said Church. Since resuming training sessions back from the festive season break, the team has undergone intensive training sessions as they prepare for the February 22 trial match against the visiting Central Queensland Capras. Followed after the Capras and Hunters trial will be the NRL trial between Cronulla Sharks and Canterbury Bulldogs. The second SP Hunters ‘trial’ will be against Northern Pride in Cairns the following week on February 29. The Hunters take on South Logan Magpies in Brisbane in the opening round of the 2020 Intrust Super Cup season on Sunday (March 15).

From the beginning of the tournament Short demonstrated his great fighting spirit. Having won the Gibraltar Chess Festival in January, it was apparent that he had come to Bangkok with a high confidence level and the mission to become the sole champion. Mission accomplished! Short played with passion and expertise in his fourth consecutive BCC Open tournament and finally managed to win it.While defending champion GM Jan Gustafsson and Women’s World Champion GM Hou Yifan underperformed, other predominantly Asian participants played very well and often surpassed expectations. In the Challenger category, Tint Swe Win (Myanmar) was the sole winner with 6.5 points after having defeated Filipino front-runner Arnulfo Gavilan Jr. in the final round. Tint Swe Win was followed by a pack of six players from the Philippines!The very competitive and well-attended blitz tournament was won by GM Farrukh Amonatov while IM Nguyen Van Huy was the runner-up, and Wan Yunguo finished third.For more information including a full list of the winners and scores, go to http://bangkokchess.com.GM Farrukh Amonatov faces WGM Pham Le Thao Nguyen of Vietnam in the final of the Blitz Championship. The annual event took place at the Dusit Thani hotel in Bangkok from April 14-19 and was attended by a host of top chess players representing 34 nations in total. India provided the largest contingent with 33 players aiming for the top award and while there were also numerous players from China and the Southeast Asian countries, players travelled from as far away as Europe, the USA, and Australia to be part of one of Asia’s foremost chess events.British GM, Nigel Short, centre, the Bangkok Open Champion 2012, stands alongside India’s M.R. Venkatesh and Neelotpal Das at the conclusion of the tournament. British Grand Master Nigel Short won the recently completed 12th Bangkok Chess Club Open 2012 with a last-round draw against IM Nguyen Duc Hoa, whose outstanding performance earned the Vietnamese player a Grand Master norm.

Powered by Firework Bowling is an interesting side of the game. Over the years, cricket playing nations having strong bowling lineups had extended periods of superiority in cricket. The ever dominant Windies side of the 70’s and 80’s and the great Australian team of the 2000’s had potent bowling attacks which were instrumental for their supremacy in cricket. Such glory was achieved due to the skills and determination of some extraordinary ODI bowlers.Advertisement Best ODI bowlers of 2018.In One-Day Internationals (ODI), while the batsmen definitely help build good platforms and apply pressure on the opposition by putting up imposing totals, it eventually is the bowling dimension which provides the team with the decisive edge to win matches.2018 has been quite a year for spinners in ODI cricket – six of the top 10 wicket-takers this calendar year and four of the top five are spinners. However, this list doesn’t take just wickets taken into consideration.Advertisement Today, we look at the five ODI bowlers who have impressed us the most this year with their consistent astounding performances. Advertisement Rashid Khan (Afghanistan)Presently ranked number 2 in the list of ODI bowling rankings by the ICC, Rashid Khan’s jaw-dropping strike rate of 22.2 in 20 matches he played this year gives us an indication of the skill and temperament of the Afghanistan leggie. Rashid has taken 48 wickets this year in only 20 innings, with a very low economy rate of 3.89. He has two five-fors this year and one occasions on which he took 4 wickets. The Afghanistan bowler has been a mainstay for the national team. The 20-year-old outperformed every other bowler of his country in the Asia Cup this year where they had to face the giants like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, he picked up 10 wickets in 5 matches and eventually finished as the joint leading wicket-taker in the entire torunament. Kuldeep Yadav (India) India’s Kuldeep Yadav is second on the list. Kuldeep, a rare breed of chinaman bowlers in the modern day, has revived the art out of its grave. With 45 wickets from 19 innings, and a five-for to his credit, the youngster has had quite the year. Kuldeep along with Rashid Khan and Mustafizur Rahman were joint leading wicket-takers in the Asia Cup. His best performance this year came against England in Nottingham, with Kuldeep taking 6 wickets from his 10 overs and giving away only 25 runs. That bowling performance saw India take a convincing 8-wicket win, and Kuldeep declared Man of the Match for his efforts. Kuldeep ends 2018 in Number 3 on the ICC’s ODI bowling rankings – an all-time career high for the 24-year-old. Adil Rashid (England) English leg-break bowler Adil Rashid comes in at number 3. Playing against India in the final ODI of the three-match series in Leeds, Adil Rashid left everyone stunned with the delivery that dismissed Virat Kohli. He took the important wickets of Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik and Suresh Raina and was adjudged the Man of the Match, as England completely outclassed India in the third ODI. He was crucial for England in their series victory. Since the 2015 World Cup ended, he is the second leading wicket-taker in ODI cricket with 116 wickets (as of Dec 15 2018) – a stunning stat that shows you the unsung hero that he has been to England’s 50-over fortunes. The 30-year-old, has taken 42 wickets this year from 23 innings, at an economy of 5.41. There is no doubt that he will continue to be one of England’s main aces in the 50-over format heading into the 2019 World Cup. Yuzvendra Chahal (India) For a spinner, especially a leg spinner it is very important to take risks in the shorter formats. That’s what Chahal is good at. Being a former Junior Chess Champion, he is a clever thinker. He bowls the slower ones, the wrong ones, flights the ball; he makes the batsman attack him and thats what make him different. He never minds if he gets hit for runs and he always looks for wickets. The Indian rockstar is one of the most effective bowlers in the shortest format of the sport. In 17 ODI matches this year, Chahal bagged 29 wickets with best figures of 5/22. Chahal & Kuldeep Yadav spin-duo will be key behind the success of Indian Cricket Team in the World Cup next year. Mujeeb Ur Rahman (Afghanistan) Afghani teenager Mujeeb Ur Rahman has been perhaps cricket’s revelation of 2018. A self-taught cricketer who learnt to bowl by watching YouTube videos, Mujeeb has bamboozled some of the best batsmen in the world since he made his international debut last December and became the first male born this century to play at the highest level. Mujeeb has taken 37 wickets this year in the 20 matches that he has played this year, at an economy rate of 3.84. Mujeeb also became the youngest bowler to claim five wickets in an ODI this year surpassing Pakistan great Waqar Younis. Advertisement
