By Ian ChadbandLONDON,(Reuters)-Chelsea moved another step towards regaining the Premier League title with a 3-1 drubbing of Arsenal in the table-topping London derby at Stamford Bridge yesterday as only Tottenham Hotspur maintained their distant pursuit of the leaders.Antonio Conte’s side moved 12 points clear of Arsenal with a performance decorated by one of the goals of the season, a dazzling individual effort from Eden Hazard starting from near the halfway line.The 2015 champions’ command at the top of the table was strengthened further with fourth-placed Liverpool falling 13 points adrift after their wretched 2017 continued with a shock 2-0 defeat at resurgent Hull City.Only second-placed Spurs, the one team to have defeated Chelsea in their last 17 matches in all competitions, appear up for the fight, reducing the gap at the top to nine points with their 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the day’s late match.Hull’s win over Liverpool saw them clamber up one place to 18th in the relegation zone while another startling result featured Crystal Palace, who lost 4-0 at home to bottom club Sunderland, with all the goals coming in the first half.Conte was a satisfied man as he watched Chelsea avenge their worst defeat of the season in September at the Emirates, the 3-0 reverse that prompted him to change their tactical approach.The Blues have never looked back since and an early header from Marcos Alonso, the dazzling second-half solo goal from Hazard and a poor clearance from Petr Cech that allowed Cesc Fabregas to chip into an unguarded net in the dying minutes sealed their revenge.Hazard’s goal was, by his own admission, “beautiful”. The Belgian picked up the ball just inside his own half, swerved away from Laurent Koscielny, outmuscled Francis Coquelin and turned Koscielny inside out again before beating Cech from close range.Olivier Giroud earned a stoppage-time consolation goal but a fourth defeat in nine league matches effectively ended Arsenal’s title hopes for another season as they now lie third on 47 points, after 24 games, to Chelsea’s 59.“It was an important game. I consider Arsenal one of the six teams that can fight for the title until the end of the season. To put them 12 points behind is very important for us,” said Conte, after presiding over a 14th home win in 15 games at Stamford Bridge.“In every session they show me great attitude and great will to fight and win this league.”Liverpool’s defeat looked to have ended their challenge too as Juergen Klopp’s men succumbed to goals from Hull’s on-loan Senegalese strikers, Alfred N’Diaye and Oumar Niasse.It continued a woeful run for the Reds in 2017, who have won just once in their last 10 games, leaving a baffled Klopp to suggest their slump made “no sense”.Tottenham, though, appear to continue to believe as they stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to 14 games and hit the half-century of points, with Harry Kane’s second-half penalty earning victory in a game they dominated but made heavy weather of sealing at White Hart Lane.Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe scored twice in first-half stoppage time as he turned Sam Allardyce’s reunion with his former club into a nightmare, the Palace boss having to watch his side ship three goals in six minutes before the break.Sunderland remain bottom on 19 points but now have the same tally as Palace, one behind Hull, who are making dramatic strides under new Portuguese boss Marco Silva.Everton, unbeaten in the league since Christmas, continued their excellent run with Romelu Lukaku scoring four in their helter-skelter 6-3 win over Bournemouth, his first coming after just 30 seconds to equal the fastest in the League this season.The Belgian international striker is now the league’s leading marksman with 16 goals with Chelsea’s Costa and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez on 15 and Kane and Defoe on 14 along with Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Members of Parliament have hailed the health benefits of golf, following a recently published scientific review by researchers at the University of Edinburgh. A motion has been tabled in the House of Commons welcoming the review, which highlights the considerable physical and mental health benefits of the sport. The review, supported by the World Golf Foundation, found that golfers live longer than non-golfers, playing golf improves cholesterol levels and body composition, and also appears to improve wellness and self-confidence. Golf is also expected to decrease the risk of more than 40 major chronic diseases (See below for more information). The motion welcomes “the collaborative approach highlighted thus far by the World Golf Foundation, the Royal and Ancient, PGAs of Europe, the European Tour, and the Universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews” and “looks forward to members and the public alike benefiting from the health benefits of this great sport.” The motion was tabled by Co-Chairman of the Parliamentary Golf Group, Stephen Gethins MP. He said: “This report is welcome and shows the huge range of health benefits that golf brings to people of all ages. This review will be of major interest to policymakers in the UK, as it reveals the benefits of the sport for longevity, but also for quality of life. “Golf clearly plays an important role in maintaining a healthy, active population, and I look forward to seeing further research into the impact of the sport on health, particularly for older people. I hope that people in my constituency of North East Fife and across the UK will continue to pick up their clubs and enjoy the considerable health and social benefits that golf delivers.” Also signing the motion was Group Co-Chairman and Member of Parliament for Lincoln, Karl McCartney MP. He said: “Since the Parliamentary Golf Group was established last year, we have been keen to promote the health benefits of the sport. I welcome this review, and in particular its finding that golfers of all ages and abilities can gain the same health benefits as those at the elite level, including better physical and mental health outcomes and likely longer life. “Golf is the fifth largest sport in the UK in terms of participation, and I hope that we can continue to encourage people of all ages to take part, and enjoy the health benefits that a round can provide.” Lead researcher, Dr Andrew Murray, commented “Our review is clear that golf has overall health benefits. Golf provides moderate intensity physical activity, which is recommended by the World Health Organisation for its key role in improving life expectancy, helping prevent over 40 major chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart attacks and strokes, and improving mental health. “Golf can provide health benefits for people of all ages and backgrounds. The interest and leadership of Stephen Gethins, Karl McCartney and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Golf in promoting the health benefits of the sport, and policies that promote growing the game is so important in helping people and populations gain the physical, mental, and social benefits golf can provide.” Steve Mona, World Golf Foundation CEO, added: “This scientific review is clear that golf can improve the health and well-being of the 55 million people in over 200 countries that play the game worldwide. The World Golf Foundation is committed to growing the game, and to do this we warmly welcome the opportunity to collaborate with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Golf at the UK parliament, with a clear focus on increasing interest and participation in our sport.” The full text of the motion is as follows: Early day motion 409 – Golf and Health That this House welcomes the recent scientific review by the University of Edinburgh relating to golf and health published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine; notes that this study highlights that golf can provide moderate intensity physical activity as advocated by the World Health Organisation and our four home nations’ Chief Medical Officers’; further notes that this study outlines that, whilst the 55 million golfers worldwide, ranging from four to 104 years old may not win the Ryder Cup, or indeed the Open Championship, they can gain the same benefits such players obtain through golf including better physical and mental health outcomes and likely longer life; is pleased that the report is being widely shared by player ambassadors such as Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, Padraig Harrington as well as members of our European and United States Ryder Cup teams; encourages others to consider the report’s implications, and look out for future research from this group; further welcomes the collaborative approach highlighted thus far by the World Golf Foundation, the Royal and Ancient, PGAs of Europe, the European Tour, and the Universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews; and looks forward to hon. Members and the public alike benefiting from the health benefits of this great sport. 6 October 2016 Golf is good for you – it’s official Golf can help you live longer, cut the risk of many chronic diseases and improve your self-esteem, according to a research project. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh reviewed 5000 papers to assess the health and well-being benefits of the game. These include a five-year increase in life expectancy and improved quality of life, as well as physical and mental health benefits. Golf is expected to decrease the risk of more than 40 major chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart attacks, colon and breast cancer. Current research shows that golf has positive impacts on cholesterol, body composition, metabolism, and longevity. The project highlights that in a round of golf a player will take up to 17,000 steps, walk up to eight miles and burn up to 1200 calories. Regular golf can also help reduce anxiety, improve confidence and boost self-esteem, all of which contribute to improved mental wellbeing. England Golf Chief Executive Nick Pink commented: “This is great news. Through our Get into golf campaign we’ve been spreading the message that golf is good for your health and we’ve shared stories of people whose lives have improved by playing the game. “This research makes it clear that our enjoyable and sociable sport has a very important part to play in the government’s strategy to tackle inactivity and we look forward to encouraging even more people to take up the game.” Get into golf is England Golf’s campaign to inspire people to take up the sport with great value coaching from PGA professionals. To find an activity near you and to read more about the benefits of playing golf visit www.getintogolf.org Get into golf is supported by National Lottery funding. The Golf & Health project is supported by all of golf’s major organisations and an initial eight ambassadors with more than 30 majors and 350 wins between them. They are Aaron Baddeley (Australia), Annika Sorenstam (Sweden), Brooke Henderson (Canada), Gary Player (South Africa), Padraig Harrington (Ireland), Ryann O’Toole (USA), So Yeon Ryu (South Korea), and Zach Johnson (USA). The project has been launched by the World Golf Foundation and the scoping review has been published in the world’s leading sports medicine and science journal, The British Journal of Sports Medicine. Steve Mona, CEO of the World Golf Foundation, said: “This project is something we can all get behind, as it is universally agreed that golf is good for you. It is going to provide real, tangible resources that can be used by governments and politicians, professional tours, governing bodies, golf businesses, PGA Professionals and more – all to the sport’s benefit.” Find out more at www.golfandhealth.org Image copyright Leaderboard Photography 6 Oct 2016 Parliament welcomes health benefits of golf

dan rowinski The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement BlackBerry is issuing the first software update to its BlackBerry 10 operating system this morning to address usability issues concerning apps, camera, calendar, contacts, browser and, perhaps most importantly, battery life.Apps Optimization & Camera UpgradeThe biggest complaints that initial users of the BlackBerry Z10 have voiced have revolved around app performance. Many apps (especially those ported from Android) are buggy on BlackBerry 10 and tend to lag and crash with moderate use. BlackBerry is addressing this problem in the update, saying it has “improved performance for 3rd party applications.” BlackBerry was not specific on exactly how 3rd party apps will be optimized going forward.BlackBerry also told users to keep an eye out for big new app launches coming in March, such as messaging platform WhatsApp. The company will feature new apps going forward by highlighting new entries to BlackBerry World every week with an announcement on Wednesdays. The first “App Wednesday” this week featured apps like “Where’s My Water” from Disney and the Slacker Internet Radio app. Another issue that BlackBerry is addressing is the camera app, which was performing poorly in low-light scenarios. The camera on the Z10 is serviceable but not without flaws (not many smartphone manufacturers can claim a camera without flaws) and it is astute of BlackBerry to address many of these features before the Z10 launches in the United States.Browser, Battery ImprovementsThe browser has been tweaked to improve how BlackBerry 10 handles video playback. BlackBerry has also issued improvements to the phone, calendar and contacts apps as well as features fixes for Gmail calendars and user interface improvements for call logging in BlackBerry Hub, the operating system’s central messaging system. BlackBerry has also made it easier to import contacts from online sources, a glaring hole in the initial release. As far as battery life goes, most users have complained that their new Z10 handsets were only getting seven to nine hours of performance, or enough for a basic workday. That is basically in line with what BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins said about the BlackBerry Z10 battery at the keynote launch of the device, but the actual experience has been inadequate for many. BlackBerry says it has made 60 different battery-saving improvements to BlackBerry 10 and that heavy users should see longer average usage per charge cycle. The update will be delivered over-the-air and be about 150 MB in size. The timing of the update will vary by what carrier BlackBerry 10 owners use.Have you received the BlackBerry 10 update? Does it address the issues you have had with the operating system to date? Let us know in the comments. Tags:#BlackBerry#BlackBerry 10 Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Officials with the Peace River Regional District and the provincial government say that progress is being made on getting a nursing school established in Fort St. John.The news comes on the tail of last Wednesday’s announcement that the provincial government had approved the concept plan for major upgrades to the Dawson Creek Hospital. During that announcement, Health Minister Adrian Dix acknowledged the hospital’s staff who “a great place, regardless of what the facilities are like.”“We owe it to them to ensure that they practice the passion of their lives – caring for people – in the best possible facilities,” said Dix. While the newly-renovated hospital might provide a less stressful facility for healthcare workers, B.C. Auditor General Carol Bellringer said earlier this year that new facilities alone won’t solve issues with recruitment and retention of healthcare workers in Northeast B.C.In February, Bellringer released a report which said that Northern Health was not doing enough to recruit and retain registered nurses, especially in the northeast part of the province. As part of her recommendations, Bellringer said that establishing a nursing school in Northeast B.C. would help to better recruit and retain nurses in this part of the province.Weeks before Bellringer released the report, Fort St. John mayor Lori Ackerman said that talks on getting a nursing school established in Fort St. John were progressing, saying she expected to hear back from the provincial government in the Spring.Peace River Regional District Chair Brad Sperling, who was also at last week’s announcement, said that the latest news from the provincial government came at the North Central Local Government Association annual general meeting in Fort Nelson in May.“The program was virtually together and ready to go,” said Sperling. “That was in the beginning of May and they were hoping to have that down there in June. They did ask me if I would be prepared to head down there on a moment’s notice and the Board did approve that. Right now we’re just waiting to hear, but hopefully it’s on its way to the Minister.”
