‘He says: “People say that I’m difficult but I’m only difficult for the ones that don’t share my principles.” So all the colleagues that share his principles they just love him. ‘The ones that don’t like him are the ones that don’t share the principles.’ The Champions League winner went on to add: ‘With me it’s basically the same. For me, everything is about the team, it’s not about selfish people. ‘For me, everything is about the group and professionalism and commitment and respect for the club, respect for the mates, respect for the fans. ‘I cannot run away from this so if there is somebody that doesn’t share these principles with me, then we have a problem and we will always have a problem because this is the way I think football has to be. ‘The players are only big when they make the others better. You cannot be a big player if you just think about yourself. Read Also:Grammys honour Kobe Bryant with tributes, jerseys‘That’s another principle. To be a big player, you have to make others big. If I have players that think they are big and they just care about themselves, and forget to help others to be big, we are always going to have a problem.’ Mourinho’s comments hammer home that Bryant’s 20 year career at the LA Lakers made a significant impact on society, as well as the sport of basketball. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 In the hours since his shocking death, tributes to the 41-year-old have poured in from the world of sport. Poignant words from Spurs boss Mourinho back in November have also resurfaced. Mourinho hailed Kobe’s ‘professionalism’ and quoted the ‘serial winner’ as he laid out his future plans for the North London outfit. ‘I read one quote from Kobe Bryant,’ the 57-year-old told reporters. ‘And if you have to speak about some examples of professionalism and serial winners, Kobe is a great example in his sport and in the world of sport. Jose Mourinho quoting Kobe Bryant in his first Tottenham Hotspur press conference shows how important he was to the world of sport. Bryant was killed alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others yesterday following a helicopter crash in Los Angeles.

#NTDP Alumni Update. Joel Farabee continues to shine for BU. Farabee tallied twice in their 4-2 win over Arizona St. on Friday night and now has 5 🚨’s and 5 🍏’s in 7 games since returning from the WJC.Here he throws one on net and finds twine for a 3-1 lead. #LetsGoFlyers pic.twitter.com/8VqAsx5uy5— Stars n’ Stripes Hockey (@StarsStripesHKY) January 26, 2019At the 2019 World Junior Championship, Farabee notched three goals and two assists for the silver-medal winning USA Hockey squad. He won a gold medal at the 2017 U18 World Championship and a silver medal the following season.Ranked No. 19 on Sporting News’ Top 50 players in NHL pipelines for 2018-19, Farabee is a solid two-way player who also led the Terriers in plus-minus (+4) in his first year of college hockey.While the future is bright for the forward, there is a foreseeable issue when he officially turns pro — finding a new jersey number. The number he wore for the USNTDP and Boston University belongs to none other than captain Claude Giroux. With the NHL season wrapping up in less than a month, the Philadelphia Flyers have already turned its attention to next season. On Monday, executive vice president and general manager Chuck Fletcher announced the club signed 2018 first-round pick Joel Farabee to an entry-level contract that will begin next season.The 19-year-old recently completed his freshman season at Boston University, earning Hockey East’s Rookie of the Year Award after leading the Terriers with 36 points (17 goals and 19 assists) in 37 games. The Cicero, N.Y. native, also led the team in shorthanded goals (3) and game-winning goals (5) and tied for the team lead in power-play goals (5). Farabee did miss BU’s last game of the season, a double-overtime loss to Northeastern in the Hockey East semifinals on Friday, with a lower-body injury.
This week Dr Ciarán Roarty of Scally McDaid Roarty Medical Practice looks at the troublesome problem of snoring.Snoring is a noise that is made when we breathe while asleep. Not everyone snores.In fact, sometimes the snorer may actually be oblivious to it. But it may cause considerable distress to the person who shares a bed with a snorer. There are a lot of lifestyle factors that can contribute to snoring and thankfully we can make changes which will help. So how do I stop snoring?There are many proposed solutions to snoring. One thing that is generally accepted to help is weight loss if you are overweight. Even a small increase in weight can exacerbate snoring. Alcohol intake can contribute to snoring also so it makes sense to reduce intake in an attempt to reduce snoring. Sleeping on your back can put pressure on your throat and increase the chances of snoring so lying on your side may help.I’ve heard there is this great device that cures all snoring Doctor?There are a lot of devices out there but unfortunately, the research or evidence for their effectiveness is somewhat lacking. It is probably wise not to spend a fortune on any device you try and don’t forget the basics – weight, alcohol and sleeping on your back. Nasal dilators may help if the snoring noise mainly comes from your nose. There are devices which advance your lower jaw and tongue which may help if your snoring mainly emanates from the base of your tongue. It is probably best fitted by an experienced dentist. Chin straps may help by forcing you to breathe through your nose, particularly, if mouth breathing contributes to your snoring. Do any medicines work?If you have a head cold a short course of a nasal decongestant spray may help, though using them for too long may cause problems also.Are there any operations Doctor?Surgery is usually not the answer. But if you are at the end of your tether all things are considered. Nose operations may be tried for polyps or deviated septum (the middle of your nose). Surgery to remove the tonsils may help children who snore.. Operations on the soft palate or uvula (the dangly bit at the back of your throat) may help, but unfortunately there is very little evidence on the long term benefit of surgery.The above information is intended as advice only and should you have any concerns please contact your own Doctor.Dr Ciarán Roarty MB, BCh BAO MICGP DRCOG Grad.

The iSimangaliso Wetland Park is one of the jewels of South Africa’s coastline, with a unique mosaic of ecosystems – swamps, lakes, beaches, coral reefs, wetlands, woodlands, coastal forests and grasslands – supporting an astounding diversity of animal, bird and marine life.Dawn over Lake St Lucia seen from Fanies Island in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa’s first Unesco World Heritage site. (Image: South African Tourism)Brand South Africa reporterFormerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, iSimangaliso was renamed in the early millennium to better reflect its African identity – and to avoid confusion with the Caribbean island country St Lucia.Lying on the northeastern coast of KwaZulu-Natal, stretching from Kozi Bay in the north to Cape St Lucia in the south, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park was the first site in South Africa to be inscribed on the World Heritage List by Unesco, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.Remarkable diversityiSimangaliso’s uniqueness lies in its remarkable diversity, particularly its combination of a subtropical coastline and a classic African game park.It is South Africa’s third-largest national park. It runs along 280 kilometres of coastline, from the Mozambican border in the north to Mapelane south of the St Lucia estuary. The park is home to some 328 000 hectares of pristine natural ecosystems – including swamps, lake systems, beaches, coral reefs, wetlands, woodlands and coastal forests.A satellite view of Lake St Lucia, a 60-kilometre estuary lying just inland of KwaZulu-Natal’s Indian Ocean coast, and the wider iSimangaliso Wetland Park. (Image: Nasa Earth Observatory)iSimangaliso Wetland Park includes a river mouth, 60 kilometres wide, that creates a huge estuary. This is Lake St Lucia, which runs parallel to the coast and is separated from the sea by the world’s highest forested sand dunes. The lake is part of the St Lucia estuarine system, the largest estuarine system in Africa.The park incorporates the whole of Lake St Lucia, the St Lucia and Maputaland Marine Reserves, the Coastal Forest Reserve and the Kosi Bay Natural Reserve. The 40 000-hectare Mkuzi Game Reserve is also in the process of being incorporated into the park.Variety of ecosystemsiSimangaliso’s wide variety of ecosystems and natural habitats provides for an astounding diversity of species in the area.With its lakes, lagoons, freshwater swamps and grasslands, iSimangaliso supports more species of animal than the better-known and much larger Kruger National Park and Okavango Delta. It is home to South Africa’s largest population of hippos and crocodiles. It also harbours giant leatherback turtles, black rhino, leopards, and a vast array of bird and marine life.A baby hippo in the iSimangaliso wetlands. The park is home to South Africa’s largest population of hippos. (Image: South African Tourism)According to the Global Nature Fund’s Living Lakes project, more than 530 species of birds use the wetland and other areas of the Lake St Lucia region. “These waters also are graced by 20 000 greater flamingos, 40 000 lesser flamingoes, as well as thousands of ducks. With 36 species, this area has the highest diversity of amphibians in South Africa.“Here, and nowhere else in the world, can one find hippopotamuses, crocodiles and sharks sharing the same waters.”In proclaiming the iSimangaliso Wetland Park a World Heritage Site in 1999, Unesco said: “The interplay of the park’s environmental heterogeneity with major floods and coastal storms, and a transitional geographic location between sub-tropical and tropical Africa, has resulted in exceptional species diversity and ongoing speciation.“The mosaic of landforms and habitat types creates superlative scenic vistas. The site contains critical habitat for a range of species from Africa’s marine, wetland and savannah environments.”Tourist attractionThe variety of natural settings, the abundance of wildlife, and the sheer beauty of the place draw tourists to the area in increasing numbers. There is plenty to do – from fishing, boating and scuba diving to hiking, horse riding, game viewing, and whale- and bird-watching.The African jacana is one of the many species of bird to be found in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. (Image: South African Tourism)The park is also one of South Africa’s most popular fishing destinations, lending itself to rock and surf fishing, kite fishing, spear fishing, fly fishing, estuary fishing and deep sea fishing.There are plenty of hiking trails through the park – ranging from a few hours’ to a few days’ worth – offering the opportunity to see a huge variety of animal and bird life. Accommodation options are extensive, ranging from camping to private game lodges, and including hotels, flats and chalets in the nearby town of St Lucia.Editing and photo research by Mary Alexander.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
