Narduzzi found his name on the list on Sunday after being flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct in the first half of a sobering 51-6 loss to rival Penn State. He apologized to his players and pledged it was a one-time event.The fourth-year coach hopes he can say the same about the second half the Panthers (1-1) endured while getting drilled by the Nittany Lions, who ripped off the game’s final 44 points and didn’t let up in the final minutes.Narduzzi had made it a point to say in the run-up to the 99th meeting between the two schools that playing Penn State is different from any other game on Pitt’s schedule. That doesn’t mean there’s any difference in the emotions after the outcome. The pain he felt Sunday wasn’t any different from any of the 17 other defeats he’s experienced since taking over.“They all hurt,” Narduzzi said Monday. “I don’t care what they are … it doesn’t matter.”The goal this week will be translating that perspective — that as difficult and ugly as the final 30 minutes against the Nittany Lions were, there is plenty to play for — to his club this week. Pitt opens Atlantic Coast Conference play on Saturday when Georgia Tech (1-1) visits. Pitt lost each of the last two years the week after facing Penn State, though both times it was to nationally ranked Oklahoma State.The Yellow Jackets and their unique triple-option provide a different kind of test. Pitt’s biggest challenge will be finding the emotional resiliency necessary to bounce back after a miscue-laden final two quarters in which they were outclassed on both sides of the ball.“Our players didn’t respond to adversity, our coaches didn’t respond,” said Narduzzi, who reiterated that it starts with him.Maybe, but a little help from the passing game would go a long way. Quarterback Kenny Pickett spent most of the night under heavy duress, took four sacks and passed for just 55 yards, barely half of that (32) to wide receivers. Through two weeks, Pitt is 122nd in the country in yards passing.Narduzzi made it a point to defend Pickett, offering a reminder that the sophomore was making just his third collegiate start. At the same time, Narduzzi acknowledged there were receivers who were running open at times and didn’t get the ball due to either the pressure Pickett faced or his reluctance to let it fly.“He’s a great QB,” Narduzzi said. “We’ve got a lot of faith in him. It’s his first time going through something like that.”Still, Pickett wasn’t much in the mood for consolation. When asked after the game if things could have been different if the Panthers had scored on a fourth-and-3 from the Penn State 4 late in the first half, he shrugged his shoulders.“That was a good word you used there. You said ‘coulda.’ Could of doesn’t mean . I don’t want to curse in front of you guys, but, could of doesn’t mean anything. We’ve got to come out and answer and be better.”The sooner the better. The next month includes trips to Central Florida and Notre Dame.“We’re not going to measure anything after a game, one game, two games, three games,” he said. “You are where you are. Everybody’s got goals. Every week this is the most important game.”___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi , center, talks with his defense during the first half of an NCAA college football game against Penn State in Pittsburgh, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018.

Courier Steelers Photo by Brian Cook (Aug. 26, 2017/File) PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers have parted ways with outside linebackers coach Joey Porter.The team announced Friday that Porter’s contract would not be renewed. The move is the first of what could be several coaching adjustments by the Steelers after Pittsburgh failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2013.The 41-year-old Porter, who spent 13 seasons in the NFL before going into coaching, joined the Steelers as a defensive assistant in 2014 and was promoted to outside linebackers coach in 2015. His tenure with the team was marred by an incident in January 2017 when he was arrested following an altercation with a bouncer at a bar. Most of the charges against Porter were later dropped.Coach Mike Tomlin called the decision to fire Porter “difficult.”Play by Pittsburgh’s outside linebackers was uneven during Porter’s tenure. Though T.J. Watt finished with a career-best and team-high 13 sacks, the development of 2015 first-round pick Bud Dupree has been slow. Longtime Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison also became problematic in his final season with Pittsburgh in 2017, eventually getting released due in part to insubordination.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL

The Long Run initiative encourages companies to run their operations ina sustainable and eco-friendly way.

Sustainability is a top priority, achieved through a holistic balance of conservation, community, culture, and commerce, or what the Zeitz Foundation calls the 4Cs.These four principles are at the heart of the Global Ecosphere Retreat (GER) certification system, for certified Long Run destinations which embody the 4Cs in their operations.Leading the way in sustainable tourism In May 2011 JSE-listed Wilderness Holdings Limited not only became the first African and South African supporter of the Zeitz Foundation’s Long Run scheme, but also the first in the tourism industry.Along with other brands such as Sefofane Air Charters and the Safari and Adventure Co., Wilderness Safaris is a thriving component of the group.Established in 1983, Johannesburg-based Wilderness Safaris has, over the 28 years of its existence, built a business on sound ecotourism and conservation – in essence, acting today for a better tomorrow.Offering marine, wildlife and heritage safaris in seven countries – Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Seychelles and South Africa – and managing over 7.1-million acres of land in eight of Southern Africa’s 11 biomes, Wilderness Safaris views care of the environment as a top priority.The company acts from the belief that the world’s wilderness areas will save humankind, and is actively involved in protecting wilderness areas and biodiversity, getting local communities involved, and working to make a difference in Africa.Of the 2 700-plus people the company employs, more than 85% come from the remote rural communities in areas where Wilderness Safaris works. The company has made a concerted effort to understand their employees’ backgrounds, perceptions and culture, as these are central to its success.The company runs a number of programmes, including community- and climate-related projects, the Wilderness Safaris Wildlife Trust, and Children in the Wilderness – all with the goal of good governance. Its conscientious and green-minded approach to business has earned awards from National Geographic, Condé Nast, the Telegraph (UK), and the World Travel and Tourism Council, among others.In a recent press release, Wilderness Safaris CEO Andy Payne said: “The reason Wilderness exists is to conserve pristine wilderness areas and the flora and fauna that they support. We believe that in conserving these areas, and including the local communities in this process, we will make a difference to Africa and ultimately the world.”Payne added that cultural and biological diversity is what makes the earth an interesting place, and that by joining The Long Run, the company hopes to spread the message that long-term success depends on sustainable business operations.Conservation, community, culture, and commerceConservation is a key factor in the operation of all Long Run destinations, which continually strive to support the sustainable use of natural resources. This in turn safeguards the integrity of the ecosphere. Conservation efforts common to all destinations include efficient management of energy, water and waste; land planning; and carbon footprint reduction, among others.GER certified destinations value the people they work with, and their activities are aimed at improving the lives of all communities associated with the company. Community activities include addressing fair working conditions, local and regional relations, social ventures, social accountability, and support for small and medium enterprises, among others.In the cultural sense, the Long Run initiative aims to strengthen intercultural relationships, while preserving cultural heritage and boosting awareness of cultural diversity. The initiative encourages a range of cultural activities, ranging from local cuisine and architecture to film and music, from crafts to sculpture, as well as sport, which is a valuable and known tool for promoting social cohesion and cultural interaction.Commerce affects not only a destination’s sustainability prospects, but also the people who live in a particular ecosystem and who must be able to earn a decent living. Sustainable commercial enterprises provide a steady source of income, and also allow for investment into schemes that uphold the 4Cs. Long Run destinations are involved not only in eco-tourism, but also in non-tourism activities such as reforestation, agriculture and horticulture, wildlife management, and livestock ranching.
Parenting can be frustrating especially when faced with children who are not quite getting it right. I am talking about kids who may be messy, disorganised, rude, with no sense of time or just terrible in math, not coordinated enough to play sports and so on. It can be tough for parents-the constant arguments, shouting matches, daily battles can leave everybody drained.This is not what you had signed up for when you had thought of becoming a parent one day! The feeling of burnout, self doubt, guilt and a creeping sense of regret! Not many parents will admit to this forbidden feeling but there is truth in this harsh sentiment. According to a study cited by happiness expert Daniel Gilbert in his book, Stumbling on Happiness (Vintage, 2005) the mothers’ sense of satisfaction decreases after giving birth to a baby and only increases when their children leave home. Parenting is a lot of hard work but ask any parent what gives them maximum joy and they will point to the little imp running her down with his screams and demands. Paradoxical but so true!So what are we supposed to do about it? Just resign ourselves to this cycle of life and or what Gilbert calls “belief transmitter network”? No way! I like to take an approach (with a few slips every now and then) which I call Parents as Coaches. Let me walk you through it.Respect the brain. One things is clear: each child is wired differently and it is extremely important that we learn to respect that. If we take different skills like reading, writing, playing football, dancing, time management, anger management, each child can be put somewhere or the other in the continuum for each. However, when the child falls low on these skills, we become very judgemental calling them lazy, sloppy, clumsy, dull, cranky without understanding that they really cannot help it.advertisementCoaching step by step. That does not mean we give up and say, “That’s what she was born with and that’s where she will stay.” Start with theskill that you feel your child needs to work on and break it into small easy steps. So, for example you want your child to become more independent in getting ready for school. Make a list of things she needs to do the previous night and in the morning. Break it up into a daily drill checklist for each chunk-packing bag, arranging uniform, bathroom must-dos, breakfast time. Put it up on the tack board, and supervise at each step initially and as she becomes more confident, you can step back. Praise them for every bit of effort they put in the right direction.Connect, play, practise and mastery. Dr Edward Hallowell (Delivered from Distraction, Ballantine, 2006) describes these four necessary steps for coaching-making sure you connect emotionally with your child, involve play at every step of skill training, let them practise till they attain mastery. Staying calm and being patient is crucial (clichd but true). Children are designed to be noisy, messy, bouncy, cranky, pushy, fidgety, yes, all that and more. I personally have found this approach very empowering. Once I wear the coach’s hat, then I do not see the difficult child trying to make my life difficult, instead I just see a struggling learner in need of some skilled training. He cannot help himself but I can!

Although Smith had won three consecutive fights, he was a heavy underdog at the Vegas sports books, but Jones emerged with respect for Smith’s fighting spirit.“I have never had anyone talk to me while I’m hitting them,” Jones said. ”(Smith was) saying like, ‘That was nice,’ or, ‘Was that all you’ve got?’”ADVERTISEMENT P2.5 B shabu seized in Makati sting, Chinese national nabbed Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. 1 dead, 3 injured in Quezon road crash Trump campaign, GOP groups attack Google’s new ad policy Ben Askren, Woodley’s close friend and training partner, survived an opening-minute beating and rallied to choke out Robbie Lawler midway through the first round of his own UFC debut.Jones (24-1) had little trouble in an expert display of his all-around brilliance against the overmatched Smith (31-14), who had no answers for the likely pound-for-pound champion of mixed martial arts.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesJones dominated on his feet, against the cage and on the ground until he got in trouble in the fourth round when his knee struck Smith’s head while the challenger was in a downed position.
