With the fitness trend in India fast catching on, people have become aware of the necessities for a perfect workout. Owning the right running shoe is essential to strike out any major chance of injury, says an expert.Also Read: 6 tips to maintain your shoes this monsoon Pooja Kalra Sood, a footwear expert from Sports Station — a chain of concept sports stores — offers the following tips for buying running shoes: Make sure to pick running shoes and not just any other shoes. Each pair of shoes is designed for the purpose they are meant for. For example, basketball shoes will do you no good while trail running.Always go for good quality running shoes, as they will never let you down. A sub-standard product will be much less durable and will increase the chances of a potential injury. Always go for shoes which are sturdy and can endure more wear and tear.Opt for a pair of good quality shoes which fit, but make sure that there should be a little room for your feet. There should be a thumb’s width at the end of your longest toe and the front of the shoe when you wear it, but never buy a shoe bigger than your size, as your heel could slip off.Choose shoes with a breathable upper section, which helps your feet to perspire less. This makes sure that chances of foot odour are minimised.Take your old shoes along, so that the store’s staff could suggest to you the best shoes according to your wear pattern. The wear pattern of an old running shoe tells a lot about the way your feet fall and if you have an over-pronation (excessive inward roll of the foot after landing) or a supination (outward roll of the foot during normal motion) problem. Should you opt for cushioned shoes for better comfort or minimal shoes for enhanced stability? That depends on your foot arch. If you have a high foot arch, the fall impact will be much greater and hence you require a pair of cushioned shoes. For those with lower arch or over-pronation issues, stability shoes are suggested.advertisement
World Cup Sources: U.S. Soccer, SUM and FOX in preliminary talks about tournament with World Cup outcasts Ives Galarcep @soccerbyives Last updated 1 year ago 06:57 11/15/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(12) USA Today World Cup United States Italy There have been preliminary discussions about the possibility of a summer showcase featuring the nations that failed to qualify for Russia 2018 With the list of 2018 World Cup absentees now containing some of the most popular teams around the globe – including the United States, Italy and the Netherlands – it only makes sense that there would be discussions about how to potentially cash in.Such talks have begun, and the result could be another event for soccer fans to look forward to in 2018. Preliminary discussions have already taken place between U.S. Soccer, Soccer United Marketing and FOX about trying to put together a summer tournament featuring top teams that won’t take part in the World Cup, sources with knowledge of the conversations confirmed to Goal.Fox Sports first reported the discussions at halftime of the U.S. national team’s friendly against Portugal on Tuesday.

Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, says Jamaica’s potential to generate and utilise renewable energy would significantly reduce what the country consumes and spends on oil. Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, says Jamaica’s potential to generate and utilise renewable energy would significantly reduce what the country consumes and spends on oil.This, he said, will place Jamaica on the right trajectory to supply not only residential customers but the productive sector with affordable energy.Dr. Wheatley was speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony for the 37-megawatt solar-powered plant at Paradise Park in Savanna-La-Mar, Westmoreland, on December 13.He outlined that the power plant will be the largest and most cost-efficient in the Caribbean.“Energy fuels growth, and as a Ministry, we have a responsibility to ensure that we provide the energy sector not only with clean energy but affordable energy,” the Minister said.He further highlighted that the Government, having embraced the drive towards greater inclusion of renewable energy, has committed to energy security through the diversification of its energy products, aided by the legislative and regulatory framework that currently exists.“Through our net billing arrangement, Jamaicans with renewable energy systems can sell the excess power generated from these systems to the JPS upon obtaining a licence. So far, we have granted some 590 net billing licences, and I know that many more Jamaicans will take advantage of this opportunity,” the Minister said.He highlighted the renewable energy being supplied by the 24-megawatt wind facility at Wigton Windfarm in Manchester; the 36-megawatt facility at Munro, St. Elizabeth; and the commissioning of the first solar photovoltaic (PV) 20-megawatt facility in Content, Clarendon.According to Minister Wheatley, the additional 37-megawatt solar facility in Westmoreland will further position Jamaica as a significant player in the production of renewable energy.“In 2016, the World Economic Forum (WEF), ranked Jamaica as number one in the Caribbean as it relates to energy diversification,” he noted.The 37-megawatt solar-powered plant is estimated to cost US$60 million, and will be constructed by Eight Rivers Energy Company. He further highlighted that the Government, having embraced the drive towards greater inclusion of renewable energy, has committed to energy security through the diversification of its energy products, aided by the legislative and regulatory framework that currently exists.

Selon de nouvelles preuves qui démontrent que les femmes enceintes courent un risque plus élevé d’hospitalisation à cause de la grippe, la province offre le vaccin gratuitement aux femmes enceintes cette année. Le vaccin antigrippal est sécuritaire et peut être administré pendant la grossesse et l’allaitement. « L’immunisation est un bon exemple de ce que chacun d’entre nous peut faire pour créer des communautés plus saines, » a dit Barry Barnet, ministre de la Promotion et de la Protection de la santé. « Lorsque vous vous faites vacciner contre la grippe, vous protégez non seulement votre propre santé, mais aussi la santé des gens qui vous entourent. » Puisque les fournisseurs de soins de santé sont fréquemment en contact avec les personnes à risque de contracter la grippe, il est important qu’ils reçoivent aussi le vaccin antigrippal. Seulement la moitié des fournisseurs de soins de santé se font vacciner. « Il est important pour les fournisseurs de soins de santé de se faire vacciner contre la grippe afin de prévenir la transmission de la grippe à nos patients, déclare la Dre Rhonda Church, ancienne présidente de Doctors Nova Scotia. « Nous devons demeurer en bonne santé afin de pouvoir continuer à fournir des soins aux personnes qui dépendent de nous. » De nombreuses personnes confondent la grippe avec d’autres maladies respiratoires ou intestinales. Les symptômes de la grippe incluent habituellement une fièvre élevée et soudaine, le mal de tête, des douleurs générales, la fatigue et la faiblesse, l’écoulement nasal, la congestion, l’éternuement et le mal de gorge. Une bonne hygiène, par exemple le fait de se laver les mains et de se couvrir le nez et la bouche pour tousser ou éternuer, est également importante pour prévenir la propagation de la grippe et de nombreuses autres maladies. Les gens qui présentent des symptômes de la grippe doivent demeurer à la maison et minimiser leur contact avec les autres. La saison grippale en Nouvelle-Écosse s’étend habituellement de novembre à avril, et entraîne plus de 20 000 visites chez les médecins. Environ 2 500 personnes sont hospitalisées pendant une saison grippale typique. Pour obtenir plus d’information sur la grippe ou pour découvrir où ont lieu les cliniques de vaccination antigrippale à l’échelle de la province, consultez le site www.gov.ns.ca/hpp . femmes enceintes; personnes âgées de plus de 65 ans; personnes vivant avec des personnes âgées de plus de 65 ans ou qui leur fournissent des soins; adultes et enfants ayant des problèmes cardiaques ou respiratoires chroniques ou toute autre maladie chronique; bébés âgés de six mois à 23 mois; fournisseurs de soins de santé et les étudiants des programmes de soins de santé; policiers et pompiers. Les responsables de la santé publique rappellent aux Néo-Écossais que l’immunisation est notre meilleure façon de protéger les gens, qu’ils soient jeunes ou âgés, contre les symptômes de la grippe. « Chaque année, la grippe cause un fardeau sur notre population, nos lieux de travail et notre système de soins de santé, » a dit le Dr Rob Strang, médecin-hygiéniste en chef. « Une grande partie de ce fardeau peut être évitée. L’immunisation est une façon simple, sécuritaire et efficace de sauver des vies et de prévenir des maladies graves au cours de la saison grippale. » Le ministère de la Promotion et de la Protection de la santé offre gratuitement des vaccins par l’entremise des bureaux de médecin et des cliniques communautaires à l’échelle de la province, aux groupes suivants :
KAMLOOPS, B.C. – Access to the backcountry has been banned in a large swath of British Columbia’s Interior as wildfire crews gear up for a challenging weekend.Kevin Skrepnek with the BC Wildfire Service says winds are expected to pick up Saturday with a change in the weather and that risks fuelling fires already burning throughout the Cariboo fire centre.The ban starts immediately, covering 103,000 square kilometres in south central B.C., and Skrepnek says it is intended to maintain safety and prevent any human-caused fires that could divert their resources.The restriction will be in place until Sept. 5 and means people cannot remain in or enter the area without the prior written authorization.Commercial operations, people travelling on an official capacity or to their primary residence, and those helping in the firefighting are exempt from the restriction.The Cariboo region spans from Loon Lake near Clinton in the south to the Cottonwood River near Quesnel in the north, and from Tweedsmuir Provincial Park in the west to Wells Gray Provincial Park in the east is popular among hikers and campers.
Five stories in the news for Wednesday, March 7———FEDS EYE TOUGHER SCREENING OF GUN OWNERSThe federal government has been eyeing changes that would allow authorities to more quickly identify people considered unfit to have guns for reasons such as mental instability or violent behaviour. An internal memo shows the Liberals plan to introduce legislation in coming weeks to fulfil platform promises on firearms — including a requirement for “enhanced background checks” for anyone seeking to buy a handgun or other restricted weapon. The federal memo, released under the Access to Information Act, indicates the government could go further, beefing up screening of those who already have guns “by allowing authorities to reassess licence eligibility in a more timely fashion.”———MISSING, MURDERED INDIGENOUS WOMEN INQUIRY IN LABRADOR TODAYThe National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls begins two days of hearings in Labrador today. About 23 family members and survivors are expected to address the hearings in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, although most will be in private. The federal government set up the inquiry in December 2015 to address the high number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. The commissioners began the inquiry in September 2016 and were hoping to issue a final report by the end of 2018, but are formally asking for two more years to finish their work.———TINA FONTAINE’S FAMILY STILL LOOKING FOR ANSWERSTina Fontaine’s family is still looking for answers after the man accused of her murder was found not guilty. Thelma Favel, Tina’s great-aunt who raised her for most of her life on the Sagkeeng First Nation, sat in the court room during the three-week trial of Raymond Cormier. She listening to testimony from experts, people who knew Tina and audio recordings of the accused speaking about the teenager. Favel says she is still struggling not knowing what happened in the weeks before Tina’s body was found in the Red River, wrapped in a duvet filled with rocks in 2014.———B.C. WOMAN RESPONDS TO EXPERIMENTAL CANCER TREATMENTA North Vancouver woman with stage four pancreatic cancer has responded so well to an experimental therapy that doctors studying her case hope to help other patients diagnosed with what’s often a deadly disease. Susan Stewart began taking experimental medication in January 2017 and also had her pancreatic tumour sequenced as part of a study in Vancouver by the Terry Fox Research Institute. The aim of that study is to sequence tumours and provide personalized treatment for patients based on their particular subtype of the disease. Stewart’s oncologist says C-T scans show her response to experimental therapy has been fantastic.———MOST CANADIANS CAN’T NAME ACHIEVEMENTS OF FAMOUS WOMEN: POLLA new poll suggests Canadians have a lot to learn about the accomplishments of some of the country’s most famous women. The survey conducted by Ipsos on behalf of Historica Canada found the majority of Canadians couldn’t name the achievements of such famous women as Emily Carr and Lucy Maud Montgomery. Only 37 per cent of respondents to the poll could identify Carr’s accomplishments as a painter, while only 27 per cent knew that Montgomery’s fame sprang from her authorship of such Canadian literary classics as “Anne of Green Gables.”———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer continues a trip to London that’s focused on Canada-U.K. trade.— Court martial in Halifax for master seaman Daniel Cooper, accused of sexual assault and ill treatment of a subordinate.— Statistics Canada releases the Canadian international merchandise trade for January and the labour productivity, hourly compensation and unit labour cost for the fourth quarter.— The Bank of Canada makes its target rate announcement.— Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale hosts a one-day National Summit on Gun and Gang Violence.— Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attends an International Women’s Day event in Toronto.— Finance Minister Bill Morneau speaks to the Calgary Chamber of Commerce.— The spring sitting of the Manitoba legislature begins.
TOKYO — A Japanese news report says former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn will be detained at least through Jan. 11.Ghosn, who led Nissan Motor Co. for two decades saving the Japanese automaker from near bankruptcy, was arrested Nov. 19 on suspicion of falsifying financial reports.He also faces a breach of trust allegation, for which his detention had been approved previously through Jan. 1.Kyodo News said the Tokyo District Court approved prosecutors’ request for a 10-day extension on Monday.The court was not immediately available for comment. Much of the nation’s government offices are shut down for the New Year’s Eve and New Year’s holidays.Ghosn has been charged in the first set of allegations, about under-reporting Ghosn’s pay by about 5 billion yen ($44 million) in 2011-2015.The Associated Press
At a media briefing this week Rajapaksa had denied allegations he gave the LTTE money and insisted that if he did he would not have looked to defeat them militarily. Ranawaka claimed that Basil Rajapakse agreed immediately to provide the said amount of money and on a later day Basil Rajapakse came with a number of large travelling bags to meet Emil Kanthan at the businessman’s office to seal the deal.The JHU has already filed a complaint with the police claiming the LTTE was given money through the Reconstruction and Development Agency (RADA) which was established by Rajapaksa following the 2004 tsunami. (Colombo Gazette) The Government of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had allegedly given the LTTE over Rs. 169 million to win their support at the 2005 Presidential election.Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) leader Champika Ranawaka said that he has all the evidence, including documents, to back the allegations. However Ranawaka revealed the names of LTTE members who a businessman had met on behalf of Rajapaksa to seal the deals in the guise of tsunami relief. He also claimed that during discussions Basil Rajapakse had with one LTTE negotiator identified as Emil Kanthan at the businessman’s office, Basil Rajapakse had told Emil Kanthan that “What Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakse wants is a boycott of voting in the North, and the PM wants to know what the LTTE would like to have in return.”In reply at a later date Emil Kanthanhad said that the LTTE wants to purchase some boats and requested for a sum of Rs. 180 million from Basil Rajapakse.
The United Nations International Court of Justice (ICJ) today announced plans to rule in two weeks on a case concerning the legality of Israel’s construction of a wall in the occupied Palestinian territory.The Court was asked to render its advisory opinion on the matter by the General Assembly, which in late 2003 adopted a measure requesting the ICJ to examine “the legal consequences arising from the construction of the wall being built by Israel, the occupying Power, in the occupied Palestinian territory, including in and around East Jerusalem.”The Court was also asked to consider the rules and principles of international law, including the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention as well as relevant Security Council and General Assembly resolutions.During three days of public hearings in February, oral statements were made by Palestine, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and over a dozen countries. In addition, the UN, 44 of its Member States, Palestine, the League of Arab States and the OIC have filed written statements with the Court.
Five thousand kilometres from home, Katie Cheliak waited for the news she had worked so hard to achieve.Earlier this spring, the 21-year-old Medical Sciences student sat alone in a quiet room in rural Ecuador and opened the e-mail that would change her life — she had been accepted to medical school.Cheliak’s journey to this pivotal moment started years earlier. By the time she finished high school, she knew she wanted a career in health care, which led her to Brock to take Medical Sciences and participate in the University’s unique Med Plus program.Med Plus is a co-curricular program that includes job shadowing, networking opportunities with health-care professionals, skill development workshops and community service projects for experiential learning. Since the program’s inception 18 years ago, hundreds of participants have gone on to pursue careers in the health-care field.Cheliak is quick to say Med Plus was a big reason for choosing Brock. “It’s super unique,” she said, “and it gives you the chance to get great hands-on experience. Later on it also helped with applications and interview prep for med school.”She has participated in many Med Plus activities while at Brock, but the trip to Ecuador, through the Solidarity Experiences Abroad program, had a particularly profound impact.Cheliak and her colleagues were able to put their skills to the test as they volunteered in various parts of the South American country, measuring patients’ blood pressure, height, weight and blood glucose, as well as helping with fluoride campaigns.Besides assisting local physicians, the Brock students also soaked up some key lessons for their future careers.“Being able to get a glimpse into ruling in or out certain things, to determine what the problem with the patient was, and how to treat it, was awesome,” said Cheliak.But the timing of the trip meant that Cheliak, and teammates Kelli Turner and Shabana Jamani, had to learn about their hoped-for medical school acceptance while they were far from home, and in the midst of a busy schedule.Even though the results came out in the morning of one of their volunteer days, the trio decided to wait until the evening to find out the important news, so as not to interfere with their work.“We worked all day in a rural community, and when we got back to our retreat house we separated and found a quiet room. I opened up my phone, saw the email and freaked out a bit. Then I called my parents to share the exciting news,” said Cheliak.All three had been accepted to medical school — in Cheliak’s case, the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University. That night, the whole group joined together in the festivities.“All of our rooms faced onto one hallway, and everyone came out to celebrate with us,” she said.Katrina Volpini, Brock’s Med Plus Consultant, described the excitement of being with the students far from home when they received the news.“It was incredible to see our students achieve their goal,” said Volpini. “We have been working alongside all of them as they went through the interview process in the last few months. It was even more fun to hear the news with them in such a far-away place, and to see them immediately begin to take the next steps in their careers.”Med Plus graduates consistently gain admission to further education programs in the health-care field, including medical school, master’s programs, physical therapy, midwifery and occupational therapy. In 2017, 100 per cent of Med Plus’ graduating students who applied, as well as several first- and third-year students, were accepted into further education programs.Upon receiving the news that she had been accepted, Cheliak had a lot of new emotions to consider, but the Ecuadorian doctors she was working with offered lots of helpful advice.Being overseas to receive the news may have been a sign of things to come for Cheliak, who is now considering pursuing opportunities in international medical work.But for now, she’s focused on the next stage in her life’s journey and can’t wait to get started in the fall.“This is my passion and I am happy to do what I want to do in the future,” she said. “I am confident in the path I have chosen and thankful to Med Plus for helping me to get there.”

Credit: Lantern File PhotoOhio State field hockey freshman midfielder Adelaide Penzone said she was scared out of her mind as she joined her teammates on the field in overtime against the Miami University Redhawks on Sunday. Little did she know that the period would end in roughly three minutes with her scoring the winning goal for the Buckeyes, securing a 2-1 victory.Sunday’s matchup was truly a battle between both teams. Miami outshot the Buckeyes 8-5 in the first half, but Ohio State junior goalkeeper Liz Tamburro kept the Redhawks off the board with two saves. Both the Redhawks (3-4) and the Buckeyes (3-3) emerged from the first half scoreless.As the Scarlet and Gray took to the field in the second half, OSU head coach Anne Wilkinson said that she saw the Buckeyes put their overall fitness and commitment to each other to work, aspects that the team has progressively been improving upon over the last two weeks.“Our communication went up 100 percent from the first half to the second half,” Coach Wilkinson said. “They really were able to move and they covered for each other really well. They were patient and really trusting of their own teammates to finish the play.”Miami’s Paula Portugal scored the first goal of the game nine minutes into the second half. OSU junior forward Maddy Humphrey was quick to even out the score around seven minutes later, with the help of an assist from redshirt junior midfielder Maggie Reddecliff.At the end of regulation, Miami had two penalty corners but was unable to convert, forcing the game to overtime. Miami threatened with a scoring chance early, but Tamburro was able to slam the opportunity and keep the clock running.Ohio State charged up the field, where senior forward Brooke Hiltz hit the ball from the left corner setting up Penzone for the game-winner, bringing the Buckeyes their third straight win.Penzone, who is described by Coach Wilkinson as “a Buckeye through and through,” was nearly at a loss for words after scoring her third career goal and her second game-winning goal.“It’s shocking, like it hasn’t happened really,” Penzone said. “I didn’t expect to be where I am.”The Buckeyes’ next game is set for Friday, Sept. 16 as they host their first Big Ten competition against No. 17 Northwestern (4-2).
DenmarkDenmark 2015mONTENEGRO Denmark and Motenegro are qualified for the eight-finals from Preliminary Group A in Herning at Women’s World Championship 2015. Danish team outplayed Serbia in the second-half on the wings of home fans in sold-out „JUSK BANK“ arena, which witnessed superb defense by Danish girls in the last 20 minutes of the match – 29:20 (13:12).The Serbian girls showed nice performance in the first half with Kristina Liščević (five goals) in the main role, but that was stopped by Danes after half-time break. Poulsen between the posts led the home team who received only four goals in the last 22 minutes to secure spot at knock-out stage.At the end, Line Jorgensen netted seven for the winning squad as the top scorer at the match.Most impressive performance of the day going to Montenegro. Classy style which reminds of the best matches of ŽRK Budućnost in EHF Champions League, played Katarina Bulatović and her team-mates. Montenegro trashed Hungary 32:15 (17:9). Defensive line of Dragan Adzić team was just perfect. Hungarians were in the match until 4:4, but that was the end of hopes of Nemeth girls tonight.Strong defense, easy goals, a lot of ideas in attack, all were on the highest level. Bulatović, Raičević (ex Knežević) and Radičević (scored 6 goals each)made 12:4 series to bring their team to 19:9 (from 7:5), but that was just a beginning. Hungary netted only six goals for the whole second half (two from 7-meter shots by Anita Gorbicz). It was a great happiness for Balkan fans to see the team like Hungary on -17. The man of the match was goalie Sonja Barjaktarović with 14 saves.Japan easily past Tunisia 31:21 in the opener of the Day 4 in Herning.

PORTLAND — Demonstrators threw smoke bombs, Molotov cocktails and other items at police Monday in Portland, Oregon, during May Day protests and storefront windows were broken during rowdy protests in Olympia.Portland police arrested more than two dozen people near Pioneer Square after a protest permit had been cancelled “due to actions of anarchists.” Police say the anarchists destroyed a police car, set several fires in the street, damaged storefront windows and attacked police.No injuries were immediately reported.In Olympia police say they took at least eight people into custody after several officers were injured by black-clad protesters throwing rocks and smashing windows. Police in Washington’s capital city had ordered a group of protesters to disperse Monday evening, saying “the group is not friendly” and “this is a riot.”Police described the group as “members of a mob” wearing masks and said they were firing rocks from sling shots as well as throwing bottles and using pepper spray. Police said they had deployed crowd control devices.In Seattle hundreds of people chanting “Stand up, fight back,” marched through downtown to support immigrants and workers on May Day.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly linked to Manchester United following Jose Mourinho’s sacking on Tuesday.Unai Emery – Arsenal’s manager – talked about his Spurs counterpart Mauricio Pochettino, saying he seems happy at his current club, and that he should reject offers from other teams. Emery says Tottenham improved under Pochettino, and that he wants the Spurs to remain a competitive squad, for Arsenal’s sake.“I think he’s very happy at Tottenham,” Emery told a news conference, according to FourFourTwo.“I think he’s coaching a very big team with very big players, and now they are in the Champions League – they are also in a better position in the Premier League than Manchester United.Pochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R.
