Mbia hints at Marseille return

first_imgQPR midfielder Stephane Mbia appears to be angling for a move back to former club Marseille after Rangers dropped out of the Barclays Premier League. Press Association The Cameroon international moved to Loftus Road last summer, with Joey Barton making a loan move to Marseille as part of the deal. But, after being unable to help QPR avoid the drop, he took to Twitter to contact Barton and see if he was interested in returning to the west London club in his place. He wrote: “@Joey7Barton: Do you want to rechange (sic) your seat with me?” center_img Barton, who was sent off on his last appearance for QPR and was handed a subsequent 12-game ban, has repeatedly told of how he is enjoying his time in France with Marseille and was quick to respond to Mbia’s request. “How do I answer this politically? Er…Nope (sic),” he Tweeted. “If you go down with a team, you should stay and help them up mate. They need you all to stick together and help them back.” Mbia, 26, has since removed the Tweet and said on the social networking site he only asked in jest. Mbia backtracked again shortly after, tweeting: “No it was not a joke i delette my tweet on pressure. I want speak with #qpr but they don’t want. So… #qpr #om.” last_img read more

Chelsea title bid over – Mourinho

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho has conceded defeat in the Barclays Premier League title race following the 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace. Press Association A John Terry own goal earned the Eagles a lifeline in their battle against relegation. Chelsea’s concerns are at the top of the table and they have played more games than rivals Manchester City and Liverpool. A second successive away loss saw Mourinho admit his hopes of a third Premier League title are over with six matches to go. Mourinho said: “We depend too much on other results. When you depend a little it’s possible, when you depend a lot, I don’t think it’s possible. “We depend now too much. I don’t think now we can win the league.” Mourinho absolved his defenders – Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, Terry and Cesar Azpilicueta – of blame for the loss to Palace, but was not shy at pointing fingers at others. Mourinho said: “My four defenders, phenomenal performance, as always. The others I’d prefer not to analyse individually.” Asked what quality is required for his side, Mourinho said: “I cannot say in front of the cameras. I can write it on paper.” Offered a notepad after the media conference, the Portuguese wrote “balls”. He had made his discontent clear. “We missed some qualities,” he said. “Mentality and a little bit of quality. Mentality because the opponents beat us clearly on that. Strong mentality, aggressive, committed. “Every one of them played, I think, at the top of their potential and that, in football, is important. “Clearly we have some players, because of their profile, who find it difficult to perform in some profile of matches. “You have Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill and Azpilicueta and they perform in the sun, in the rain, small pitches, big pitches, aggressive teams, non-aggressive teams, possession teams, not possession teams and they perform every game from day one to the last day. “And you have other players who are fantastic in some matches and disappear in other matches.” For Mourinho, the disappearing acts have happened in four of Chelsea’s five losses this season, all of which have come away from home. The exception was the defeat at Aston Villa when the Blues boss was unhappy with referee Chris Foy’s performance. Mourinho claims he was trying to avoid an incident similar to when Eden Hazard was sent-off for kicking a ball-boy at Swansea last season when he approached one of Palace’s ball-boys in stoppage time. The Chelsea boss suggested the boy had been told to return the ball slowly. Mourinho said: “The kids were doing that all the time, so I went to stop Azpi and I had the chance to get the kid, and the kid was cute. “He came to me and I told him if he does this, ‘one day somebody will punch you’. “But the kids, it’s not their fault. It was not me, for sure (telling the kids to slow it down). I was losing.” Palace boss Tony Pulis danced down the touchline at full-time in celebration of the Eagles’ first league win over Chelsea in nearly 24 years. After fulfilling some of his media commitments, Pulis left his post-match media conference to assistant David Kemp to enjoy a glass of wine. Kemp said: “Our players have put in a magnificent effort today. They’ve been rightly rewarded and for him to recognise their effort I thought was very good. “Jose came and congratulated our players. I thought that was very classy.” Kemp did not dwell on the penalty appeals which went against Palace, but believes the result could have been more convincing, with Cameron Jerome also hitting a post. “The finishing didn’t match some of the rest of the play, but that’s been our problem for a while,” Kemp added. “Fortunately today one was enough and we’re very pleased with it. “If we could stick the ball in the net to back it up it could’ve been a bit more comfortable.” The victory could aid Palace in the closing weeks of the campaign. “It’s big for the club and it’s big for the players,” Kemp said. “When you beat a top team it gives them that little bit more confidence, credibility and belief to go on. It will be very important for this group of players and the club.” last_img read more

USC Health Equity Initiative researches LGBTQ mental health

first_imgCece Uhrich, a junior majoring in environmental science and health, recalls feeling “defective” when she was trying to understand her sexuality. She said that the “heteronormativity of society” led her to feel depressed in middle and high school. Health Equity Initiative members participated in Models of Pride. Photo courtesy of Dr. Jeremy T. Goldbach.“I couldn’t relate to my friends, and I felt stupid for being the only one who had never kissed a boy,” Uhrich said. “It definitely affected my self-esteem so much growing up, not that I really understood why. I can’t imagine that that was good for me, to not understand my sexuality and not realize that was even an option to not like boys and still be a normal human being.”Now at USC, she wrote a paper speaking about her experience as a gay woman, but noticed that much of the research she did was solely based on theory — not statistics and hard facts.USC’s LGBT Health Equity Initiative wants to change that.The  initiative is a collaboration among faculty, Ph.D. students and undergraduate research assistants studying different aspects of the mental health of LGBT individuals. The research focuses primarily on gender minority and sexual minority individuals.“The goal [of the initiative] is to improve knowledge so that we can intervene to improve the lives of LGBTQ people across contexts, across age groups, across racial and ethnic boundaries,” said Cary Klemmer, a Ph.D. student working on the initiative. “So that we can understand also the interplay of different factors, like race and ethnicity, on the experiences of LGBTQ people.”USC Dworak-Peck assistant professor Jeremy Goldbach, the director of the initiative, said that this program is one of few focused on mental health research. Goldbach said that past funding for research in LGBTQ communities has primarily focused on HIV, as it was an epidemic that needed immediate attention. However, that research was geared toward men, leaving major gaps in knowledge, she said.“This has left us with a lot of research that’s focused on men, young men and primarily white young men,” Goldbach said. “So that means that we have a whole community out there that we don’t know much about.”Jeremy Gibbs, a Ph.D. candidate working on the initiative, said that their ability to conduct more comprehensive research has been made possible due to a change in the “social conscience” of the United States.“Same-sex marriage is allowed now, [and] there are a number of laws that now protect individuals who are sexual minorities or gender minorities,” Gibbs said. “And so there’s been a considerable change over the last five or six years.”One of these changes includes the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, which banned openly gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals from serving in the military. Now, the Health Equity Initiative is conducting the Military Acceptance Project. With funding provided by the Department of Defense, the two-phase project is looking at the behavioral health needs of active duty LGBT service members by conducting both qualitative interviews and quantitative surveys. The data gathered will be used to recommend improvements to the Department of Defense for the health of LGBT service members.The initiative is currently working on six other projects as well, including research to understand and reduce suicide risk among sexual minority adolescents and substance abuse among 18- to 24-year-old sexual minority men. It is also running a longitudinal study in collaboration with the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to determine how minority stress may influence health from adolescence into young adulthood. While Uhrich supports this research and looks forward to information coming from it, she hopes that the research will be presented to the public in a way that is understandable for the LGBTQ youth.“If they can do that, this will have a huge impact,” Uhrich said. “If you could read something and realize that you’re not alone and you’re not defective for having these experiences … one of the biggest things about accepting your sexuality is not feeling alone and feeling normal, which is something this [initiative] could offer people.”last_img read more

Rivaldo: “Sarabia has to understand that he is at Barça”

first_img“Sarabia has to understand that he is in Barcelona, ​​a team that attracts a lot of attention. That is why you have to be extremely careful with your behavior. He is not in any club, he is in a great club like Barcelona and these things can alter the internal environment of the squad, “said the Betfair ambassador.Rivaldo not only transmitted these exhortations to Sarabia, but also “to all the staff and staff members who are on the bench. It is crucial to avoid repeating something like this. Especially now, that the cameras will be more attentive than ever, “advised the Brazilian.“Ronaldinho does not deserve what is happening to him”Finally, Rivaldo wanted to have words of encouragement for Ronaldinho, companion of the Brazilian team with which he won the 2002 World Cup and a personal friend. The Gaucho is being held in Paraguay for the alleged use of a false passport. “It is obvious that I am very saddened by everything that is happening with Ronaldinho. All of this is bad for his reputation as the great soccer idol he is. He does not deserve it“said the Betfair ambassador.In his words he also showed prudence. “Only when I talk to him and his brother will I know what has happenedBut naturally, as a friend and colleague, I refer to his version and try to understand why he had an allegedly false passport. “ Rivaled, a legend of FC Barcelona and Betfair ambassador, has praised the feat achieved by Atlético de Madrid by eliminating Liverpool in the Champions League and qualifying for the competition’s quarterfinals. A feat that the Brazilian fundamentally places on the shoulders of his coach.“Simeone has an important part of responsibility in Atlético’s classification. He is one of the best coaches in the world and empowers his players so much, that makes them reach their limits … and even beyond“Rivaldo began to value.”The team always plays highly motivated and focused when Cholo is close. It transmits strength and desire to the players and they respond by achieving feats that few believe they can achieve, “he complimented the Argentine, against whom he faced many times as a player.Rivaldo even believes that Simeone is responsible for Liverpool’s current losing streak. “When Atlético won in Spain, their free fall began. You could say that he has had a great influence as a stumbling block, “added the Betfair ambassador.“Sarabia has to moderate her behavior”Winner of the Ballon d’Or in 1999, Rivaldo also took the opportunity to pull Eder Sarabia’s ears and his behavior in the Classic, when he was hunted by the cameras, harshly criticizing the Barça players.last_img read more
