Warriors’ dominance gets two thumbs up from ex-NBA commissioner Stern

first_imgI’ve got to be honest — I never thought a lot about David Stern.He was named the NBA’s commissioner on Feb. 1, 1984, was handed the Magic Johnson Lakers and Larry Bird Celtics on a silver platter and he didn’t screw it up.Under his leadership, the league grew and thrived, come hell or labor unrest. “Stern often played the role of emperor, forever beating back the barbarians at the gate (the media and the players union),” wrote Sports Illustrated’s Chris Ballard, from whom we will hear more …last_img read more

Mayilvaganan with Barracuda fishThey are not old men but they are one with the sea, fishing in waters which has brought them both business and fun. In a brainwave Manoj Chacko, 40 and R. Mayilvaganan, 45 hit upon the idea of taking deep-sea fishing beyond mere trawlers and make it a pleasure ride for those who had heard about it but had no clue as to how to go about the adventure. With its headquarters in Chennai, Barracuda Bay Adventure, an year and half old company, is now a name to reckon with; for the first time in Tamil Nadu, fishing has become more than just a wait and watch pastime. It’s adventure. “But honestly all we wanted to do was provide a platform for keen enthusiasts to fish. Safely, economically and ecologically.” says promoter Manoj Chacko.Chacko and Mayil had to fight for over a year to obtain permits and clearances to start their business. “It was very difficult. We were bounced around from one department to another. Nobody seemed to know what permit to give us! But six months ago, the paperwork was finally stamped and filed, and Barracuda Bay escorted its first passengers into the deep blue sea. Model Divya Pandurangam with fishing equipmentWith over twenty years of angling experience the two promoters wanted other enthusiasts to share in the joys of deep sea fishing. Chacko is an interior designer by profession while Mayil is a real estate developer. “Tamil Nadu has such a gorgeous coastline and the Marina at Chennai has so much to offer. The feeling of going out to sea on a luxurious boat cutting through the swells is an amazing experience. We wanted others to have this opportunity,” enthuses Chacko. And then the passionate angler in him takes over: “It is such a great feeling. Even after doing this for so long, it is indescribable to see barracuda rocketing out of the water chasing baitfish, giant trevally chasing plugs and poppers around the wrecks, or the sound of screaming reels with a king or a sailfish taking line.” But what of those who wish merely to experience the deep blue? “You just want to laze about nibbling on a sandwich and watch the occasional dolphin pod crisscrossing the front of the bow? Well please go ahead and do just that!

Anxiety can make you walk in opposite direction

first_imgDid you notice why you suddenly start moving in the other direction when in stress? Blame your brain as people experiencing anxiety have more activity on the right side of the brain, causing them to walk in a leftward trajectory, researchers report.Dr Mario Weick from the University of Kent has for the first time linked the activation of the brain’s two hemispheres with lateral shifts in people’s walking trajectories.In research aimed at establishing why individuals display a tendency to allocate attention unequally across space, people were blindfolded and asked to walk in a straight line across a room towards a previously seen target. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The researchers found evidence that blindfolded individuals, who displayed inhibition or anxiety, were prone to walk to the left, indicating greater activation in the right hemisphere of the brain. “This is the first time researchers have established a clear link between inhibition and activation in the right side of the brain,” the study noted.The findings may have implications for the treatment of unilateral neglect, which is a condition caused by a lack of awareness of one side of space.last_img read more
