TORONTO — Once again, Trevor Harris and the Toronto Argonauts added to the Saskatchewan Roughriders' misery. Harris threw two fourth-quarter TD passes to rally Toronto (4-2) to a penalty-filled 30-26 win over the hard-luck Riders (0-7) on Saturday night at Rogers Centre. It was the second time the Argos had beaten Saskatchewan this year — the first being a 42-40 overtime decision at Mosaic Stadium on July 5 — and marked the first since '04 that the Double Blue have swept the season series with their Western rival. "We were fortunate to sneak out a victory, our defence did a great job making a big play for us," Harris said. "We had guys step up when we needed (them) to and that's the key in football. Harris finished 23-of-29 passing for 316 yards — his fourth 300-yard game this season. He hit a streaking Diontae Spencer for a 53-yard touchdown pass at 4:41 to put Toronto ahead 30-23. Just 58 seconds into the fourth, Harris found Vidal Hazelton on a 27-yard scoring strike that tied the score in a game that featured 43 combined... It was the second-most penalties in a game in CFL history. The record is a combined 46 flags for 445 yards in a 1992 game between Hamilton and Winnipeg. But it was Akwasi Owusu-Ansah who provided the game-changing play. He returned a Brett Smith interception 50 yards for the TD, which Harris followed up with a two-point conversion pass to offensive lineman Wayne Smith to tie it 16-16 in the third. And although Smith then hit Chris Getzlaf on a 55-yard touchdown toss at 9:49, Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said Owusu-Ansah's return was crucial. "It was the biggest play of the game, without a doubt," he said. "We were struggling offensively and kind of slopping around defensively. "That play, followed by Wayne's two-point conversion, energized our sidelines and it was game on. ". Toronto won just five days after dropping a 34-18 road decision to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. "These games are ugly when you play in five days. I knew it would be that way," Milanovich said. "That display of penalties, you can't blame that on anything. "It was way uglier than I expected it to be. I'm proud we found a way to win. we sit here 4-2 and we don't have to apologize for that but we've got to get better. The Riders pulled to within 30-26 on Paul McCallum's 27-yard field goal at 12:13 of the fourth. Source: www.therecord.com
We know the familiar narrative: Women really can't have it all, right. You can't have a big job without sacrificing family life and giving your kids (or your house, or your partner, and most definitely yourself) short shrift. Laura Vanderkam, who writes and speaks about time management and productivity, wants to explode that old story in her new book, "I Know How She Does It: How Successful Women Make the Most of Their Time" Women do have time for ambitious careers and... It's all about making conscious decisions with time. She explains:. Q: A lot of people, women and mothers especially, feel they have crazy busy lives. You challenge that notion. A: A lot of the literature on women and work and life is based on anecdotes. Stories of stressful days and stressful situations. Stories have great power, but often they're not the whole story. We often tell ourselves stories that aren't true. So I wanted to bring data to this conversation. I also felt that a lot of the conversation was kind of negative. A lot of us have pretty good lives when it comes down to it. You can have stressful moments in a wonderful life. I think it helps to look at the picture more broadly. I wrote this to show how women were successfully combining work and life and what their days looked like on an hour-by-hour basis. Q: What did you find. A: I had people track their time by the half-hour. One of the most surprising things, but the one I was most gratified to see, was that people didn't work around the clock. Everyone in my book was earning six figures. Yet their average workweek was about 44 hours. That's longer than the average person, but it wasn't round the clock. It was also cool to see that people were generally sleeping. We have this idea that if you have a big job, you'll never sleep and you'll see your family. Yet they were getting an adequate amount of sleep -- 54 hours a week -- which is a little under eight hours a day. If you're working 44 hours, and sleeping 54 hours, that leaves 70 hours for everything else. It seems quite possible to have a fulfilling family and personal life within those 70 hours. Sometimes they had to be creative about it. But they were doing it. Q: What were they doing that others may not be. A: The most important thing was they were all using flexibility that they either explicitly had, or that they decided to take. About three-fourths of the women in my study --.

Nick Johnson skims the lunch menu at the White Dog Cafe, a warren of little rooms and ante-rooms in Philadelphia’s university district. “Beef empanadas… I would have loved those. But all that braised beef would just get lost on me. Fish and chips I avoid: all fried foods taste the same. I’m looking at the fish tacos. I know I’ll get the spicy heat and a little bit of pineapple flavor, and with the peppers and the guacamole, there’ll be some mouthfeel there. He orders the tacos, and we get a beer that’s on tap. It’s called Nugget Nectar, and it’s produced by the local craft brewery that Nick’s worked at for the past ten years. Nugget Nectar used to be his favorite beer. “It has a real nice balance of sweetness and hops. But now,” he says, and his face falls, “it’s a shell of its former self to me. ” He can describe what it smells like: “piney,” “citrusy,” “grapefruity. ” But he can’t smell it any more. We don’t think of ourselves as being particularly good smellers, especially compared with other animals. But research shows that smells can have a powerful subconscious influence on human thoughts and behavior. People who can no longer smell — following an accident or illness — report a strong sense of loss, with impacts on their lives they could never have imagined. Perhaps we don’t rank smell very highly among our senses because it’s hard to appreciate what it does for us — until it’s gone. Nick, who’s 34, can pinpoint the moment he lost his sense of smell. It was January 9, 2014. He was playing ice hockey with friends on the frozen pond at his parents’ place in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. “I’ve done it millions of times,” he says. “I was skating backwards, slowly, and I hit a rut on the ice. My feet went out from under me. I hit the back right side of my head. I came to in the ambulance, people surrounding me, blood pouring out of my ear. ” He had ruptured an eardrum and fractured his skull in three places. He had blood on his brain, and was suffering from seizures. “I had no idea what was going on. ”. After making a rapid recovery, he was cleared to drive again six weeks later and returned to work as regional sales manager at Tröegs brewery. Before long, he found himself in a meeting about a new beer. “We were tasting it, and the others were saying, ‘Can you smell the hops in the beer. ’… and I couldn’t. Then I tasted it. There were guys saying, ‘It’s got this pale biscuity flavor’… and I couldn’t taste it. Source: discovermagazine.com

She was up at 4 o'clock this morning. I was holding her, we were laying in bed. I know what my son smelt like as a little baby, as a young kid. Sometimes not so good, but he still had that great little kid smell to him. With her, I've never experienced
