Alonso ruins Spurs’ Wembley house-warming

first_imgMarcos Alonso celebrating after scoring against TottenhamLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham Hotspur made a losing start to life as Wembley’s full-time tenants after Marcos Alonso’s double earned Premier League champions Chelsea a 2-1 victory on Sunday.The Spaniard struck either side of a late Michy Batshuayi own goal to get Chelsea back to winning ways after their opening 3-2 loss at home to Burnley and end Spurs’ club-record run of 14 successive home wins.Spurs went unbeaten throughout their final league campaign at White Hart Lane, but struggled at Wembley in the Champions League and have now lost eight of the last 10 matches they have played there.Mauricio Pochettino’s men appeared to have avoided the worst when Batshuayi put through his own goal in the 82nd minute, only for Hugo Lloris’s feeble attempt at a save to gift Alonso the winner two minutes from time.For Spurs, who are playing at Wembley while White Hart Lane is rebuilt, it was a first home defeat in the league since a 2-1 loss to Southampton in May 2016.Having endured a deeply trying start to the season, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will hope victory over the team his side pipped to the title last season will bring some much-needed positivity back to Stamford Bridge.The Italian celebrated Alonso’s winner with characteristic abandon on the touchline, thoughts of his side’s transfer window struggles and his long stand-off with want-away striker Diego Costa seemingly banished.Chelsea’s list of absentees — suspended pair Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas, injury victim Eden Hazard and the exiled Costa — moved Conte to adopt an unfamiliar 3-5-1-1 system, with David Luiz anchoring the midfield.He also gave a debut to £40 million ($51.5 million, 43.8 million euros) new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko, who produced a leggy 90-minute showing in his first appearance since arriving from French champions Monaco.– Kane hits post – Alvaro Morata should have crowned his full Chelsea debut with an early goal, only to head wide from seven yards when Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross picked him out unmarked, but in the 24th minute his side did go ahead.Chelsea were awarded a free-kick after Dele Alli clipped Luiz and from a position 25 yards from goal, slightly to the right of centre, Alonso arced a magnificent shot into the top-right corner.Harry Kane, Alli and Mousa Dembele had all threatened for Spurs prior to Chelsea’s opener and after falling behind, they dominated the rest of the first half.Kane bent a shot against the base of the right-hand post after cutting inside Andreas Christensen from Alli’s pass, while Ben Davies saw a swerving effort from range clubbed away by the diving Thibaut Courtois.The hosts could count themselves unfortunate to be behind, but they were also a little lucky to keep 11 men on the field after Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen escaped with yellow cards for ugly fouls on Luiz and Victor Moses.With Chelsea’s back three becoming more of a back five, they successfully held Spurs at bay in the second half and came close to adding a second goal when Willian’s low drive came skidding back off the post.Spurs thought they had rescued a point with eight minutes remaining when Batshuayi, who had only been on the pitch for four minutes, inadvertently headed Christian Eriksen’s free-kick into his own net.But six minutes later, Alonso picked up a loose ball in midfield and swapped passes with substitute Pedro before drilling a low shot beneath Lloris to give Chelsea victory.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Caution: Geocacher in training

first_imgWhile “the largest outdoor treasure hunt” sounds simple enough, we can admit there is quite a learning curve to mastering the art of geocaching. That’s why we’re improving the onboarding experience for new geocachers with our latest Geocaching® app update. These changes will not affect geocachers who have previously found and logged a cache, but will provide training to get new users up to speed with the game of geocaching, the app, and best practices while out in the field.  What this will look like:For players have never logged a geocache, a new overview of caches in their area will be displayed along with a recommended first cache to find. The cache details page will expand so that the player can learn more about the hide. Players can choose to disregard the cache and choose another, or proceed to navigating to the recommended geocache. After the first find (smiley), the geocacher will have the opportunity to receive up to two more geocache suggestions.How it works:Although the criteria for the recommended cache can change and improve over time, the idea is to offer a great introduction to geocaching. In addition to other criteria, we’ll be making sure the most recent log is not a Did Not Find (DNF), Needs Maintenance (NM), or Needs Archived (NA), that there is no NM attribute, that the cache is not locked, disabled, or archived, and that the user has not already found the cache (when on the second and third suggestions).Anything else?If you’re just starting out with geocaching, be sure to check out our ten tips for newbies looking for their first geocache and 10 tips for new and seasoned geocachers. Feeling a bit more advanced?

Multiplication Through Subtraction

first_imgMost people believe that producing a better result in some area of their life requires that they start doing something, that they add something to what they are already doing. Better results, as far as they are concerned, requires they do something new. Better is found through addition.Taleb introduced me to the idea of Via Negativa, the idea that better is more often found in subtraction. It’s more likely that you will find the better results you want by subtracting, eliminating things instead of adding things.You might improve your health by eliminating certain foods and food-like substances or calories in excess of what you need. You might improve your wealth by eliminating spending on things that bring you no real joy and no real value. You might also improve your work through elimination.You can start by eliminating tasks and projects that aren’t going to move you towards your goals and outcomes. The time you recover is time that can dedicated to the tasks and projects that are most important and useful to you and others. Some time ago, I reviewed my project list and deleted eighty-percent of it, an exercise that not only freed up time but also provided clarity of purpose.Distractions are now so many and varied that it can be difficult to eliminate them and give yourself over to what needs your attention. You can eliminate the Internet and the social apps that draw you away from the very few things that produce the most meaningful results. More difficult, but just as important, you can block your time and provide public notice to remove interruptions.Email isn’t something you can easily drop. It is, however, something you can eliminate for hours at a time by closing your inbox. Unless you are in some role that requires you to monitor email to provide support, you can go two hours without responding to email with confidence your phone will ring if someone has an emergency that requires your attention.For most sales professionals, one of the most important things they need to remove is the tasks (or transactions) that belong to someone else on their team. Subtraction hear multiplies results, even though it requires trust in your team.More isn’t better. Better is better. Multiplication is found in subtraction, not addition. Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Nowlast_img read more
