Tottenham turn to ex-Man Utd transfer target to solve Nuno Espirito Santo’s major problem

Tomiyasu may not be the only centre-back Nuno looks to bring in either, with the likes of Jules Kounde, Milan Skriniar and Jannik Vestergaard also on Tottenham’s radar.

Davinson Sanchez could well be on the move this summer, with the Colombian in line to be used as a makeweight for a deal to bring in Kounde from Sevilla.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Tottenham have reached an agreement for Kounde’s services which includes a €30million (£25.5m) fee and Sanchez going the other way in return.

New Covid infections are rising across the US. The problem is especially bad areas with low vaccine rates — disproportionately Republican areas.

But the task of persuading holdouts, skeptics and the merely disinterested to get their shots is being complicated by the further politicization of the pandemic — a trend that will cost lives and exacerbate an already stark tragedy that has deepened the nation’s ideological estrangement.
There are many reasons why some people won’t take a step that seems a no-brainer to most of the 48% of Americans who are fully inoculated. Health professionals bemoan misinformation, cultural suspicion of vaccines and antipathy to government advice. Some people also think the Covid-19 danger has passed or that they don’t need a shot because they survived the disease. Others fear side-effects from the shots.
Many Americans view their individual freedom as absolving them of the idea that getting vaccinated is a public duty. But with data showing that 99% of those claimed by the disease are unvaccinated, making a political statement on the issue seems an absurd waste — and heightens the possibility of fostering even more potent variants that could potentially put even the vaccinated, and the halting return to normalcy, at risk.
There is some hope that efforts on the local level could help. A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll released on Tuesday suggested that ending vaccine hesitancy may be best tackled at more personal levels. The study identified a small cohort of respondents who were unvaccinated in January and weren’t sure about going ahead or who didn’t intend to do so but who later changed their minds. Among that group, people often said that family members, friends or personal doctors had persuaded them to get vaccinated.
But consistent efforts to wring political advantage from the pandemic by leaders like ex-President Donald Trump are continuing while he is out of office and are tarnishing the critical late-stage push to beat Covid-19.
The idea that anyone would perish because they listened to a politician playing into Covid-19 skepticism for their own career advancement, or a conservative media host chasing ratings, is nauseating. But it’s happening — as opportunists cite misinformation or play into preexisting US skepticism of authority.
Even the act of publicizing life-saving vaccines can founder on political divides.
Tennessee’s vaccine chief, for instance, says she was fired after she merely shared a memo explaining state law allowing health care providers to decide whether minors have the capacity to consent to a vaccine themselves.
“The people of Tennessee have been sold out for politics,” the official, Dr. Michelle Fiscus, told CNN.
Dr. Lee Savio Beers, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, condemned the dismissal of Fiscus and warned the move could harm the health of adolescents, a group in which vaccinations trail other age groups.
“Dr. Fiscus’s termination is the most recent example of a concerning trend of politicizing public health expertise,” Beers said in a statement.

Vaccines in the crossfire

Education has long been a political battleground of the pandemic, with Republicans who wanted blanket state reopenings often clashing with teachers unions, a powerful Democratic constituency.
Now, seven Republican-run states have banned public schools from requiring a Covid-19 vaccine — even though entry to educational systems typically requires kids to have their regular round of shots for infectious diseases, like measles or mumps.
The political map is, meanwhile, becoming the pandemic map. New Covid-19 infections are rising in 45 states, as the Delta variant takes hold. The problem is especially acute in those with low vaccine rates, which are disproportionately Republican.
Vaccines are also being caught in the crossfire at a time when partisan politics infects almost every aspect of daily life.
Some politicians seek quick headlines in a way that will likely add to the human misery by giving holdouts political reasons not to get vaccinated. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Lauren Boebert of Colorado misrepresented the Biden administration’s voluntary vaccine outreach effort as akin to Nazism.
Over the weekend, a potential GOP 2024 candidate, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, sought to supercharge her own political hopes by comparing her own hands-off management of the crisis to efforts by other GOP governors who should have shown more “grit.” Her barbs were apparently aiming at Govs. Greg Abbott of Texas and Ron DeSantis of Florida, rivals for the hearts of the Trump base, whose own efforts to combat Covid-19 have themselves been marked by political expediency.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas over the weekend, a massively pro-Trump crowed cheered when a speaker said the government failed to get 90% of the country (sic) “suckered” into getting a vaccine.
In some cases, hospital workers have themselves stoked the political debate over vaccine mandates by opposing a requirement to be inoculated to protect vulnerable patients — as happened in Houston last month. But Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy backed hospital systems with such requirements.
“That’s part of how we protect patients from infection and patients coming into hospitals are often vulnerable,” Murthy told CNN’s “New Day.” “I think that’s a very reasonable thing for hospitals to do.”

Romney: ‘A huge human cost’

When the last miles of the vaccine drive are difficult enough, complications posed by politics are the last thing the public health officials need as they try to prevent needless deaths.
“This is primarily a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and we need to be very clear about that message,” Dr. Chris Pernell, a fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine who is a public health physician and health equity advocate, told CNN.
Some leading Washington politicians expressed disbelief on Tuesday at the failure of many Republican voters to get vaccinated.
Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said there had been a “huge human cost to have made vaccinations political.”
“After all, President Trump and his supporters take credit for developing the vaccine,” he said. “Why the heck won’t they take advantage of the vaccine that they received plaudits for having developed it?”
The views of Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are shaped by his bout with one of the most feared diseases in children, poliomyelitis, which has since been eradicated by vaccines.
“I’m a huge fan of vaccinations,” McConnell said. “If you’re a football fan, we’re in the red zone but we’re not in the end zone yet, and we need to keep preaching that getting the vaccine is important.”
McConnell would not be drawn, however, on the question of whether the misinformation spouted by colleagues like Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson has something to do with suspicion of vaccines among some GOP base voters.
Trump’s ex-Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said Biden could help fight Republican vaccine skepticism by lessening his criticism of his predecessor.
“I am calling on President Biden to stop blaming everything that happened in the pandemic on Trump,” Adams told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, defending his former boss’ mishandling of a crisis that the ex-President said would simply “go away” and during which he trashed his own government’s guidance multiple times. Adams was one of those experts who Trump often ignored during his time in office, but the former surgeon general has been a frequent presence in the media in recent months defending his former boss and criticizing Biden and his Covid team for a myriad of reasons.
Adams also called on Trump — who has celebrated his own role in the development of the vaccines but has done little to persuade his supporters to take it — and other Republicans to do more to do more to win over holdouts.
“God has given us a miracle, a true miracle,” he said. “But salvation is only available to those people who accept it.”
Given the hyper politicizing of the pandemic, it’s unlikely that Biden’s pleas to the unvaccinated will have a huge impact, especially since his speeches are rarely covered on conservative media networks.
For many Americans it’s too late, as the Delta variant of coronavirus sweeps through unvaccinated populations, especially in the South. The agony of patients who chose not to get vaccinated but wish too late that they could change their minds is a heavy burden for health care providers.
“Most of the patients I see are regretful that they didn’t get vaccinated,” Missouri emergency physician Dr. Christopher Morrison told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Monday.
“I’m not there to wag a finger at them at that point, when people are that sick,” Morrison said. But he added: “When people are that sick, they wish they had done anything they could to avoid being that sick.”

Someone Thinks They’ve Resolved Nintendo’s Joy-Con Drift Problem With An Incredibly Simple Fix

Switch Joy Con© Nintendo Life

If you’re desperate to salvage those drifting Nintendo Switch Joy-Con and have watched all the videos online (including our own), and still haven’t had any luck, a new video that’s surfaced on YouTube is claiming to have solved the Joy-Con drift problems once and for all.

VK’s Channel on YouTube identified how the Joy-Con realigns when pressure is applied to the surrounding area of the analog stick. Therefore increasing pressure within the Joy-Con (which loosens over time), makes the drift disappear.

Surprisingly, this fix doesn’t require any technical know-how. All you have to do is open the case and insert a small piece of paper or cardboard (say the size of a business card) where the analog is located. Yes – it’s that simple. It’s further explained how the prongs inside the controller lose contact with the pads, and the paper fills the gap and restores pressure.

The YouTuber also notes how their own drifting Joy-Con have been working fine for around two months now, and that the same fix can be applied to Nintendo Switch Lite. Skip to 5:55 to see the main fix in action.

Keep in mind, inserting things into your controllers (even pieces of paper) is at your own risk, and will likely void any warranty. Will you be giving this incredibly simple fix a go? Leave a comment down below and tell us if you’ve had any luck with this fix yourself.

Millions face frustrating Freeview TV glitch but there’s a way to fix the problem for free

Freeview continues to grow in popularity and it’s not hard to see why. This service offers a swathe of content without paying any expensive monthly subscription charges to firms such as Sky or Virgin. However, despite the attraction of viewing TV for free, there is a problem for Freeview with some users of the service being hit by annoying glitches that wreak havoc on the picture and sound quality.

These problems stem from the way Freeview is received by the aerials that are attached to millions of homes across the UK.

The frequencies used by some mobile services are close to those previously used for free to view TV. As a result, there is a small chance that aerials, TVs, or set-top boxes can struggle to receive a good signal when new mobile masts are being activated nearby.

Mobile networks are constantly upgrading their equipment and when they do, some homes begin to suffer.

According to the latest reports, Edinburgh is next on the list for a big mobile upgrade with users being warned that their TV signal may start to suffer intermittent sound issues and a blocky picture whilst the work is being undertaken.

It sounds hugely frustrating but if your TV is suffering from these annoying problems then there is a simple fix.

Restore TV, which is actually part of some of the UK’s biggest mobile networks, is offering a free filter that can be self-installed and should help clear up the image and sound on TVs.

Restore TV says that they will send out the filter to anyone responsible for their own aerial.

Full instructions are included with the firm even providing further advice online or by phone.

In most instances, fitting the filter will resolve any TV interference. However, if it does not and you are eligible, Restore TV may be able to arrange for an engineer to visit your home, at no cost.

Speaking about the issue a Freeview spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “As some the frequencies used by mobile services are close to the frequencies used for TV it’s possible that mobile broadband services can interfere with TV signals, particularly if mobile operators are making upgrades in the local area.

“If viewers experience new TV interference following such work, Restore TV is an independent programme created to help fix disruption to TV received through an aerial, such as Freeview.

“Restore TV can send out filters that will block the mobile signal from interfering with your broadcast TV signal entirely free of charge.”

And Ben Roome, chief executive of Restore TV, added: “We know just how important TV is to inform, entertain and provide welcome company. Restore TV exists to ensure we all can continue to access free to view TV as mobile services are improved across the UK.”

“In most instances, fitting the filter will resolve any issues, but if this isn’t the case, we may also be able to arrange a follow-up visit from a Restore TV engineer at no cost, depending on eligibility.”

Ear wax: Can the colour indicate a problem with your health? When to see medical help

How can you prevent earwax build-up?

The best thing to do is to avoid putting anything in your ears that could push earwax further into your ear canal and lead to impacted wax, infection or even a perforated ear drum, said Harrison.

He continued: “It is extremely important not to put things such as cotton buds, ear candles, match sticks, hair grips and pencils (yes really) in your ears to rid them of any build up.  

“It’s also important to keep your ears clean. You should regularly wipe around the outside of your ear, particularly after showering or washing your face.”

So what should you do if your ears become blocked?

Earwax does usually fall out on its own. If it doesn’t and causes a persistent blockage, it’s best to seek professional advice.

Republican candidates are increasingly focusing their 2021-2022 campaigns on the baseless claim that voter fraud was a rampant problem in the 2020 election

Some GOP contenders are still falsely asserting that former President Donald Trump was robbed of victory last year — a lie Trump himself has told at rallies he has held in recent weeks that have focused largely on his attempts to settle old scores and elevate Republicans who are willing to amplify his falsehoods.
Dozens of Republicans campaigning on Trump’s election lies are seeking statewide offices that would give them authority over how elections are conducted and which ballots are counted. Others are running for congressional and state legislative seats, where they could shape voting laws.
In Arizona, state Rep. Mark Finchem — who was in Washington during the January 6 riot at the US Capitol — is running for secretary of state, a position that would make him the state’s chief elections officer, on the claim that the widely panned and problem-plagued “audit” of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots ordered by state Senate Republicans could somehow upend President Joe Biden‘s victory in the state.
“What I would be in favor of is reclaiming our electors and denying the current occupant of the White House … those electoral college votes,” Finchem said in an April 1 town hall-style presentation about the audit. “If you have enough states to pull those back and you get below to 270, we now have an illegitimate president.”
Kristina Karamo, a Republican candidate for secretary of state in Michigan, claims that Trump won the state — even though Biden won Michigan by more than 154,000 votes. She is calling for an Arizona-style audit in the Upper Midwestern battleground.
“People mocking the audit are really ignorant,” Karamo said in Lansing on June 29. “No, common sense tells you if someone is doing something effectively, you learn from them that what you can replicate the process yourself.”
Wren Williams, a first-time candidate for a state legislative seat in Virginia, said he believes President Joe Biden was duly elected because his victory was certified by Congress — but he claims that was based on state certifications of vote totals that “are not exactly wholly accurate.”
Williams was a member of Trump’s legal team that attempted to overturn the election results in Wisconsin. Last month, he ousted a 14-year incumbent member of the Virginia House of Delegates after campaigning largely on election fraud concerns. He is now likely to win that safely Republican seat this fall.
“I have seen enough discrepancies throughout at least Wisconsin that would overturn the Wisconsin election,” Williams said, pointing to what he called a series of problems, such as lax enforcement of laws about who qualifies to vote by mail and clerks helping some voters complete their ballots.
“There are issues like what I’m saying and then there are issues like the Kraken,” Williams said.
He was attempting to draw a distinction between his concerns about fraud and bigger right-wing conspiracy theories, including the baseless promises of far-right attorney Sidney Powell to “release the kraken,” a reference to the mythical creature. (Powell pursued a flood of post-election lawsuits that she’d said would prove widespread voter fraud, which ultimately failed.)
But experts disagreed, saying that Williams and other Republicans making bigger promises are ultimately trafficking in the same lies about election fraud.
“It might be more palatable and that might just be with the way they’ve learned to sell themselves, but it really is coming from the same place,” said Sylvia Albert, the director of voting and elections for the good-government group Common Cause.

Loyal to Trump

The crop of Republican candidates who are advancing election lies is in many ways a response to a base that remains loyal to Trump and has bought into his falsehoods.
A Monmouth University poll last month found that 1-in-3 Americans believes Biden won the 2020 election due to voter fraud, and more than 3-in-5 Republicans believe fraud was responsible for Biden’s win.
Trump, meanwhile, has returned to holding campaign-style rallies, in part in an effort to punish Republicans who have broken with him. Trump recently began his revenge tour in Lorain County, Ohio, where he lambasted US Rep. Anthony Gonzalez for voting to impeach him earlier this year and sought to boost Max Miller, a former Trump aide who is challenging the congressman in the district’s Republican primary next year.
“Max’s opponent is a guy named Anthony Gonzalez, who’s bad news. He’s a grandstanding RINO, not respected in DC, who voted for the unhinged, unconstitutional, illegal impeachment witch hunt,” Trump said at the rally.
Some Republicans who broke with Trump over his voter fraud lies — including Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp — have attempted to ease the intra-party political pressure they face in part by implementing new laws that will make some methods of voting harder. That push for strict new voting laws has dominated legislatures in Republican-controlled states this year, with Georgia, Florida and Iowa among the states that have implemented new laws and a special session set to begin in Texas, where GOP leaders hope to enact similar restrictions.
Other Republicans are trying to avoid Trump’s wrath by walking back their previous criticism of the former president. J.D. Vance, the “Hillbilly Elegy” author and Ohio Senate candidate, is apologizing for 2016 tweets in which he criticized Trump.
In posts first unearthed by CNN’s KFile, Vance repeatedly bashed Trump during the 2016 campaign — calling the billionaire businessman “reprehensible” and saying that “in 4 years, I hope people remember that it was those of us who empathized with Trump’s voters who fought him most aggressively.” Vance also tweeted out that he had voted for Evan McMullin in the 2016 election.
But on Fox News Monday, Vance was backtracking from his criticism of Trump.
“Like a lot of people, I criticized Trump back in 2016,” Vance said. “And I ask folks not to judge me based on what I said in 2016, because I’ve been very open that I did say those critical things and I regret them, and I regret being wrong about the guy. I think he was a good president, I think he made a lot of good decisions for people and I think he took a lot of flak.”
Still, even some of Trump’s allies — those willing to claim voter fraud altered the result of the 2020 election — say there is political peril to insisting that elections are rigged.
“Now I have this huge issue show up that basically, people aren’t willing to trust the system,” Williams said. “And I’m like, ‘Look, we need you to vote.’ “

Sarcopenia – The Problem of Muscle Loss

Fitness Icon Kathy Smith Says BFR will Revolutionize Fitness – “Results will blow your mind”

Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD BFR Expert/Author BFR Theory and Application

Mel Lavitt Uses B Strong BFR to Maximize His Exercise

Can a Specialized Training Method Used by Olympians, Help Solve the Potentially Serious Issue of Muscle Loss After 40? Olympic Physician, Thinks So.

Blood Flow Restriction Training or BFR, is a catalyst to garner more benefits from lighter exercise in order to build muscle, strength and increase lean body mass.”
— Sports Scientist, Olympic Physician, Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — It is well documented, but astounding that physically inactive people can lose as much as 3-5% of their skeletal muscle mass each decade after age 30, also known as Sarcopenia. Strength and muscle loss with aging, is indeed, a well-known and common condition characterized not only by loss of muscle mass, but loss of function and balance and may compromise activities of daily living, or ADL perpetuating more and more health problems.High intensity exercise and significant resistance weight training, along with a ton of supplements and pills can help curb the early signs of sarcopenia; however, supplements are expensive and high-intensity workouts can become too difficult to actually do at the level needed to facilitate gains, and can be overly time consuming.

Cutting Edge Exercise Modality to Defy Muscle Mass: A well-researched, somewhat secret modality used by Olympians and Physical Therapists for decades to quickly build muscle, strength, power, and lean body mass is now making its way into mainstream workout sessions – called Blood Flow Restriction Training or BFR. BFR has been proven to have significant increases in muscle mass even in populations, including boomer and senior populations.  This is great news in the fight against osteopenia and sarcopenia and the lifestyles these diseases significantly alter. The easiest way to avoid muscle loss is to continuously build muscle. As you age, BFR is an ideal process to continuously build muscles as you age.   

Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD is an international BFR expert, Sport Scientist, and Clinical Physician who lectures,  teaches, and authors BFR certification courses explains, “In my years of investigating the applications, mechanisms, and controversies of BFR, I have found the phenomenon to be a game changer that can be added to any current workout a person is doing. BFR is a catalyst to garner more benefits from normal exercise to build muscle and strength.”

“According to the American College of Sports Medicine, to elicit gains in strength and muscle growth, we need to work out at a level of 70% of our one rep maximum (Hughes et al, 2017). To some, that is unattainable.  Many cannot even get to that level, much less work at the level for an extended time, but to reap the benefits of exercise, it is necessafy.  BFR solves the problem.
“By adding BFR to your workout, similar, if not better, gains in muscle strength and size can be attained at 20% of your one-rep max. (Loennek, 2017).  BFR, using safe equipment and following guidelines can mitigate so many issues compromising strength, muscle, and balance,” continues Stray-Gundersen. 

Fitness icon, Kathy Smith agrees.  “I have been involved in the fitness industry for over 40 years, and one of the frequently asked questions in the Fitness Over 40 community, is ‘how do I defy muscle loss?’  BFR is the answer and I think it will revolutionize the industry.” 

BFR will stimulate more motor units with exercise and impact fast twitch muscle fibers, which are negatively impacted with sarcopenia. All of this can be performed very safely for older adults, while still getting the benefits that are typically only obtained with high intensity exercise. BFR provides an opportunity to minimize muscle loss with age and allow maintenance of function. This is also just looking at the local muscular impact let alone the hormonal benefit.

What is BFR? 
BFR is an exercise technique that manipulates the body’s circulatory system, and when combined with exercise, produces rapid gains in strength and fitness using lightweights, and in a very short period of time. BFR is a game changer for any level of fitness, for recovery, muscle growth, strength, power, performance improvement, and lean body mass. You can do BFR anytime, with any type of exercise and get results in less time than traditional exercise.
Sounds too good to be true, but science says it works and, in less time, than traditional exercise, using only 20% to 30% of what is typically needed to increase muscle mass. B Strong BFR bands fight muscle loss by putting pressure on the veins directly beneath them in your arms and legs, creating a kind of valve. When one exercises, that pushes the blood past the valve back toward the heart.  

The uniquely designed patent-pending bands safely slow down the delivery of oxygen so that the working muscle cannot keep up, creating a bit of a “crisis” in the muscle. The result of this ‘crisis’ actually tricks the brain to elicit and release significant amounts of growth hormone which helps rapidly improve the size and strength and power of muscles, build new blood vessels, actually strengthen bone, and get leaner due to an anabolic state which is breaking down fat without a long arduous exercise session.

Does it Work: A 2017 study by researchers in Sao Paulo involving 23 men and women between the ages of 51 and 70 found that while high-intensity weight training produced the best results, BFR training with weights weighing one-fourth as much produced substantial gains in both strength and muscle mass. BFR “constitutes an important surrogate approach to high-intensity resistance training as an effective training method to induce gains in muscle strength and mass in elderly,” wrote Carlos Ugrinowitsch and his colleagues. 

Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD, sports scientist and co-founder of B Strong BFR Bands, a unique form of Blood Flow Restriction training, has used this well-researched method of training to stay ahead of the game and defy muscle loss. When following proper protocols, and safe equipment BFR can be a game changer in developing significant strength gains using light weights and in short sessions even more effective than lifting heavy weights. 

“In my 30 years of maximizing human performance at the highest level of sport, I have never seen a more profound way to gain strength, power, and lean body mass, than with BFR,” says sports scientist, Olympic Physician, Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD.
