Can We End the Meditation Madness?

first_imgThe New York Times:I AM being stalked by meditation evangelists.They approach with the fervor of a football fan attacking a keg at a tailgate party. “Which method of meditation do you use?”I admit that I don’t meditate, and they are incredulous. It’s as if I’ve just announced that the Earth is flat. “How could you not meditate?!”I have nothing against it. I just happen to find it dreadfully boring.…After spending the past four decades studying mindfulness without meditation, the Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer has identified plenty of other techniques for raising our conscious awareness of the present. For example, it turns out that you can become more mindful by thinking in conditionals instead of absolutes. In one experiment, when people made a mistake with a pencil, they had one of several different objects, like a rubber band, sitting on the table. When they were told, “This is a rubber band,” only 3 percent realized it could also be used as an eraser. When they had been told “This could be a rubber band,” 40 percent figured out that it could erase their mistake.Read the whole story: The New York Times More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Alabama 12 opponents in 12 days: Game 9 — LSU

first_imgLSU Tigers running back Leonard Fournette is grabbed by Alabama Crimson Tide defensive lineman Jarran Reed last year.LSU Tigers running back Leonard Fournette is grabbed by Alabama Crimson Tide defensive lineman Jarran Reed last year. Editor’s note: Leading up to the start of camp, the Advertiser will take a look at each of Alabama’s 12 regular-season games. This is Game No. 9.Coming out of its first bye in Week 9 of the season, Alabama will undoubtedly be rested and recharged entering its late-season matchup with rival LSU.While not traditional rivals like Auburn or Tennessee, the annual matchup with LSU has taken on an intensity all its own since Nick Saban returned to college football at Alabama following an impressive run in Baton Rouge.But, at least of late, it’s been a little one-sided in the Tide’s favor.Not since the epic 9-6 defensive slugfest in what was touted as the “Game of the Century” during the 2011 regular season has LSU managed to find victory over the Tide. Alabama is 4-0 since then, including a 21-0 shellacking of the Bayou Bengals in the 2012 BCS title game.Not that LSU hasn’t made it interesting. Outside of the national title game loss and a 38-17 win in Tuscaloosa in 2013, the last two games in Baton Rouge have been tight contests, including last year’s 20-13 overtime victory by Alabama, which rallied for a game-tying field goal in the closing seconds and then won it in overtime.Whether or not this year’s game will equal last year’s or 2011 is unknown, but if history serves, it’s certainly going to be one to watch.Game 9LSUDate: Nov. 7Time: TBALocation: Bryant-Denny Stadium (101,821)TV: TBACoach: Les Miles (131-50 overall in 14 years, 103-29 entering 11th season at LSU)2014 record: 8-5, 4-4 SEC (tied for 4th in West) Series history: Alabama leads, 49-25-5; won 20-13 OT in 20142014 rankings/game (national/SEC)Scoring offense — 27.6 (76th/13th)Total offense — 387.5 (80th/9th)Scoring defense — 17.5 (4th/2nd)Total defense — 316.8 (9th/1st)Returning starters: 20 (8 on offense, 6 on defense, 6 special teams)Returning leadersOFFENSEPassing: QB Anthony Jenningss, Jr. — 111-of-227 passing (48.9 percent), 1,611 yards, 11 touchdowns, 7 interceptionsRushing: RB Leonard Fournette, So. — 187 carries, 1,034 yards (5.5 average), 10 touchdownsReceiving: WR Travin Dural, Jr. — 37 catches, 758 yards (20.5 average), 7 touchdownsDEFENSETackles: LB Kendell Beckwith, Jr. — 77; S Jamal Adams, So. — 66Tackles for loss: Beckwith — 71/2; Adams — 5Sacks: DT Christian LaCouture, Jr. — 21/2Interceptions: S Rickey Jefferson, So. and CB Tre’Davious White, Jr. — 23 things to know about LSU:Fournette frenzy: Coming into LSU last season as the ballyhooed of ballyhooed freshman, with comparisons ranging from Herschel Walker to Michael Jordan, talented Tigers tailback Leonard Fournette didn’t disappoint in his first season in Death Valley. A sure-fire NFL prospect as a high school senior, Fournette set the school rushing record for a freshman with 1,034 yards and 10 touchdowns last season and comes into 2015 with his name already receiving Heisman buzz. With a question about who’s going to start at quarterback for the Tigers, there’s little doubt that the 230-pound tailback will lead LSU’s offense, especially early in the season. Of course, while Fournette has already shown he can slice up opposing defenses with ease, his toughest test will come against Alabama’s physically imposing and experienced defensive front seven.Touchdown tandem: While Fournette dominated the headlines last season, fellow true freshman Malachi Dupre paired with then-sophomore Travin Dural to provide LSU a potent pair of playmakers in the passing game. Of course, while Dural would go on to lead the team in receptions, yards and touchdowns, Dupre’s progress was hampered a bit by the unsettled nature of the Tigers’ quarterback situation. If LSU is going to reassert itself as a true contender in the SEC West, how Dupre continues to develop as a big-play threat — he led the Tigers averaging 22.7 yards per catch last season — could pay major dividends, both for whoever wins the starting quarterback job and in the SEC standings.Miles mayhem: Les Miles is affectionately known as the Mad Hatter for his sometimes daring, sometimes costly propensity for high-risk, high-reward play calls. And with his infatuation with turf grass or the occasional rambling, Miles is rarely if not at least entertaining. But after an 8-5 season last year, tying his worst mark in a decade at LSU, and two straight seasons when the Tigers are more or less out of the SEC West hunt by November, there’s speculation whether the Tigers’ fan base can accept another mediocre season. That being said, given the seven seasons with 10 or more wins, Miles has certainly built up some leeway and isn’t on the hot seat just yet. Though, a fifth consecutive loss to the Tide could certainly cause it to get warm.Next up: Mississippi StateGo Mobile, Montgomery! Download our apps herelast_img read more

Neymar didn’t celebrate the goals or win as PSG lifted Super Cup

Pep Guardiola: It’s a lot of points and Liverpool don’t slip up
