Share HealthLifestyle 4 Ways to get your legs in shape without exercise. by: – June 8, 2011 26 Views no discussions Tweet Share When warm weather arrives, so does the urge to liberate your legs–in all their pale, vein-ridden or fuzzy glory. Use these fast fixes (and more serious solutions) to bare yours with confidence.TO FIGHT FUZZThe good news is that hair growth on your legs typically slows with age. The bad news? Because the skin on your legs also gets drier, fuzz removal is more likely to cause irritation.1) FAST FIX: A MULTIPLE BLADE RAZORRazors are the gold standard for quick, easy hair removal. “Pick one with multiple blades to get the job done in fewer strokes and minimize nicks and razor burn,” says Arielle Kauvar, MD, clinical professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center. Try (1) Schick Intuition Naturals Sensitive Care ($9.50; drugstores), with four blades centered in a skin-conditioning solid that melts onto wet skin as you shave. Other keys to a clean sweep: Moisten skin with warm water first and shave in the morning, when legs are less likely to be swollen, so more of each hair’s length is exposed to the blade.2) SERIOUS SOLUTION: A FASTER, CHEAPER LASERThe new LightSheer Duet hair-removal laser is faster and less painful than older lasers. Its vacuum head gently stretches skin closer to the light source, so more energy can reach (and destroy) follicles and your body is tricked into feeling the vacuum sensation instead of the usual stinging. Bonus: Faster also means cheaper—about $800 per session, compared with $2,000-plus for traditional lasers.3) TO REDUCE CELLULITE Got cellulite? You’re not alone; more than 85% of women experience dimpling, which gets worse with age—perhaps because skin’s connective tissue weakens, allowing underlying fat to bulge.3) FAST FIX: A CAFFEINATED LOTIONA lotion with theophylline (a diuretic agent) or caffeine—such as (2) Vichy CelluDestock ($39.50; drugstores) —can temporarily plump skin’s surface, so legs appear smoother, according to Miami-based dermatologist Leslie Baumann, MD. And a tinted leg spray, like (3) MAC Skinsheen Leg Spray ($26.50; maccosmetics.com), disguises the lumpy texture but is easier to use than self-tanner because it washes off at the end of the day. Another temporary fix: Do an inverted yoga pose (prevention.com/inverted for how-to’s); it can drain excess fluid from fat cells, improving puckering for a few hours.4) SERIOUS SOLUTION: PULSED SOUND WAVESCelluPulse, a treatment that uses high-energy, pulsed sound waves, may help smooth bulges. It’s FDA approved for treating muscle injuries, but many docs use it off label for cellulite.“We typically see 75 to 80% improvement in the look of cellulite after six to eight sessions,” says Anna Buinewicz, MD, a cosmetic physician in Doylestown, PA. The cost? Up to $3,200 for eight sessions.TO VANQUISH VEINSAbout 50% of women age 50-plus have spider veins, small, dilated blood vessels that are visible when located near your skin’s surface. The usual cause is genetics, but obesity and long hours of standing or sitting with legs crossed can also cause them by compromising blood flow.5) FAST FIX: TINTED LEG SPRAYHide veins with a tinted leg spray or waterproof body makeup, such as (4) Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15 ($27; dermablend.com).6) SERIOUS SOLUTION: SCLEROTHERAPYVeins may disappear after sclerotherapy, a procedure in which each vein is injected with a solution that causes it to collapse. Many docs are doing the procedure with Asclera, which has fewer side effects and may be more effective than traditional sclerotherapy solutions, according to West Palm Beach derm Ken Beer, MD. Treating both legs can take up to 10 $275 to $400 sessions. Share Sharing is caring!

British boxer Tyson Fury celebrates after defeating Deontay Wilder It was alleged in a Mail on Sunday report a farmer was offered money to provide an alibi for Fury’s failed drugs test in 2015. Fury and his cousin Hughie tested positive for nandrolone in 2015, which they subsequently blamed on eating uncastrated wild boar meat, citing a farmer called Martin Carefoot who claimed to have provided them with the product. After an expensive and elongated stand-off with UK Anti-Doping, Fury and Hughie received retrospective two-year bans and were able to resume their careers in December 2017. In the Mail report, Carefoot denied having provided the Fury team with the meat, insisting he was offered £25,000 to make up the story in order to aid their case. But Sulaiman, whose WBC belt Fury won against Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas last month, said the allegations would have “no impact” on his reign as champion. “Personally, I prefer to believe Tyson Fury ahead of someone who has already admitted to lying in legal documents for financial gain,” Sulaiman told The Sun.

Aggression appears to be the headline act at Cork as Qatar Racing’s retained rider Andrea Atzeni makes the trip to partner him in the Friday BBQ Evenings Handicap. Eisenhower will try to improve on his debut fourth in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden. He holds an Irish 2,000 Guineas entry so clearly shows a little something at home, but Dermot Weld’s Araner and O’Callaghan’s Knoxville Bullet, who was behind Aggression last time, can put up stiff opposition. Weld and O’Brien also provide two of the leading protagonists in the Ticket Sales Online At corkracecourse.ie Maiden with Tadaany going for the Rosewell House handler and Father Frost representing the Ballydoyle team. John Oxx is also double-handed with both Foolish and Frozen Lake in the mix. O’Brien has a pair of runners in the concluding Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden, with Joseph riding Siege Of Orleans and his brother Donnacha on Cradle Mountain. They again have a Weld runner to contend with in the Aga Khan’s Sidra. Bold Thady Quill hit the bar at Listed level on his seasonal reappearance at this track and looks the class act in the Great Value Social Package Handicap. Ado McGuinness’s consistent Bubbly Bellini also lines up on the back of a win at the Curragh on the opening day of the season, while Nini Ok won at Dundalk earlier in the year. Greyscape will try to make it third-time lucky in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Auction Maiden. Winner of his sole juvenile start for Michael O’Callaghan last December, the three-year-old Marju colt was subsequently purchased by Qatar Racing and now lines up under top weight in this six-furlong affair. Five Claw, a winner at Dundalk in February for Michael Halford, looks another leading contender, while Kevin Prendergast’s all-weather winner Sharaasa will likely have her fans. Press Association
London, March 10: Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) topped Chelsea 2-1 in the second leg match to seal a 4-2 win on aggregate in the contest for a slot in the Champions League quarter-fils.This marks the second year running that PSG has bested Chelsea in the round of 16, reports Efe.One important difference from last year’s second-leg at Stamford Bridge ground was the role of PSG’s star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was ejected from the 2015 contest on a controversial red card.On Wednesday, the 34-year-old Swedish intertiol assisted on the visitors’ first goal and scored the second himself.Chelsea sought to score early to erase the 2-1 deficit from the first leg in Paris and Diego Costa forced a save from PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp just three minutes in.But in the absence of injured captain and defensive mainstay John Terry, Chelsea scrambled to keep pace with the high-powered PSG attack.Angel di Maria nearly scored in the first 10 minutes, beating Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois after a great pass from Lucas Moura only to see defender Branislav Ivanovic stop the ball on the line.In the 15th minute, Di Maria fed Ibra charging down the right side and the big man served up a perfect cross for Adrien Rabiot to redirect into the net, making it 1-0 for the visitors on the night. But Chelsea battled on.Willian exploited Thiago Motta’s giveaway in the PSG end and fed the ball to Costa, who eluded Thiago Silva to hammer the ball past Trapp in the 27th minute.Down 2-3 on aggregate at the break, Chelsea started the second half with plenty of energy, though the outlook for the London club darkened just before the one-hour mark, when Costa left the game with an injury.Even so, Chelsea got a pair of chances at 64 minutes, when Trapp had to make stops on Willian and Eden Hazard in quick succession.Two minutes later, Ibrahimovic scored from the six-yard box on a cross from Di Maria, pushing PSG’s advantage to 4-2 on aggregate and setting Chelsea the impossible task of scoring three goals in the fil 25 minutes.

The Wisconsin men’s basketball team has been pretty fortunate avoiding injuries the past couple of years. Tuesday night, the Badgers dodged a bullet once again.Starters Alando Tucker and Michael Flowers both went down with what seemed to be serious injuries — Tucker left the game with 9:44 remaining in the first half after getting poked in the eye by Florida State’s Jason Rich, and Flowers limped off the court with 16:24 left in the second half after rolling his ankle on Seminoles guard Toney Douglas’ foot.Both Tucker and Flowers headed to the locker room for an extended period of time, but luckily for Wisconsin, they both returned later in the game and appeared to be fine.Tucker’s injury seemed especially serious, as blood was seen dripping from his right eye, but his return was somewhat expected from his teammates.”That’s [Tucker],” senior guard Kammron Taylor said. “He goes out there and plays hard every day, every game no matter what.”When Tucker returned, he was visibly squinting his eyes, and a couple of his shots were off.”I think the trainer told him to, ‘As soon as you get the ball, take a long shot and see how your vision is,'” UW head coach Bo Ryan joked about Tucker taking a three-point shot right when he returned.Sophomore forward Kevin Gullikson and freshman guard Trevon Hughes saw some extra minutes in Tucker and Flower’s absence as the Badgers continued to play on, not worrying about their fallen teammates.And Wisconsin’s depth is something that will allow it to fight through injuries this season, including small scares like Tuesday’s.”We’re deep this year,” Taylor said. “If somebody goes down, we have people on the bench to help pick people up, and that’s a good thing to have.”We don’t get too rattled; we don’t get frustrated about [injuries] because we still have other players out there who are willing and ready to step up when their name is called,” Taylor added.The Florida State Seminoles, on the other hand, suffered an injury that did hurt them in Tuesday night’s game.FSU senior forward Al Thornton hobbled off the court with 15:36 remaining in the second half and headed to the locker room with cramps.Thornton later returned, but after picking up his fourth foul with just under eight minutes left in the game and experiencing some dehydration, the star forward sat out the rest of the game for good.”Sometimes you get dehydrated early in the game, and [Thornton] was not really as explosive and active as he normally has been,” FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton said. “It’s just one of those things that happened. I don’t think it’s anything serious.”While Florida State may have dug itself a hole in the first half, down by 11 at halftime, Thornton’s absence for most of the second certainly affected the Seminoles.”I’m sure that we would’ve been better had we had [Thornton] at full strength,” Hamilton said.”[Thornton’s] a guy that can do a lot of things,” Ryan said. “We had a couple guys get banged up for some minutes, too, but you could tell that his effectiveness wasn’t the same.”Big Guys, Big GamesWisconsin’s big men — Brian Butch, Jason Chappell, Greg Stiemsma and Marcus Landry — teamed up for a solid game up front for the Badgers.The Badger big men helped UW control the boards 36 to 31 and chipped in by combining for eight assists, something that thoroughly impressed Hamilton of Florida State.”The most impressive thing about [Wisconsin’s] big guys is that they’ve totally bought into the system,” Hamilton said. “They execute, they don’t force things, they play within themselves, and they allow the offense to come to them.”And Ryan would totally agree.”Our big guys do listen,” he said. “They executed pretty well. We got some guys who can take the minutes that they’re getting and make the most out of them. They have bought into the system.”Dressed to impressBefore tip-off, UW Athletic Director Barry Alvarez presented Ryan with a basketball commemorating the head coach’s 500th career win from over the past weekend.For the honor, Ryan wore a flashy red suit jacket — an unfamiliar top in his wardrobe reminiscent of Tennessee’s Bruce Pearl.However, Ryan said the commemoration wasn’t the reason why he was wearing the top.”The price was right,” he said. “The W Club got it for me. And it fit.”I don’t even know what the material is. Some people are guessing camel, some people are guessing cashmere, some people are guessing llama … I just know it’s red.”
PITTSBURGH –– Sitting, whispering in the Petersen Events Center’s visitor’s locker room, Mike Hopkins formed the same gesture with his hands Scoop Jardine signaled to his teammates in the second half. The hand gesture — a strong circle, signifying a compact defense all the way around — equates to SU’s paramount failure in its 74-66 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday.Hopkins touched his fingertips from each hand together, bending his knuckles to form a linked circle, while speaking of SU’s inability to keep the Panthers out of the heart of the Orange’s 2-3 zone. But Monday, the strength of the circle was pillaged.‘In the beginning of the game, they were just getting to where they wanted to get to,’ Hopkins said. ‘And they just got little bounce passes, they were just very effective getting in the paint.’Monday, the Orange failed to communicate and shift enough to be that compact, complete 2-3 zone. And both SU head coach Jim Boeheim and Hopkins said the defensive failure was the difference in the game. It started with Fab Melo’s poor play in the first two minutes — when he allowed four points to Pitt power forward Nasir Robinson — and he was pulled for the rest of the game. Boeheim played with a smaller lineup the rest of the game, as Syracuse’s other center, Baye Moussa Keita, played just six minutes.The defects in the zone were all the way around, just like Hopkins and Jardine’s hand gesture. Melo began it all with poor positioning. The SU wings — without 6-foot-7 starting small forward Kris Joseph, who was out with a head injury — didn’t find the Pitt cutters in what Hopkins described as the SU zone’s ‘dead spots.’ And Jardine, Dion Waiters and Brandon Triche couldn’t halt Pitt’s drives. Boeheim said it was the guards’ worst performance of the season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘Our guards did nothing,’ Boeheim said. ‘They had the worst defensive game they had all year. They didn’t do a good job defending our zone. They just weren’t good at all.’Pinpointing one area of inefficiency in the SU zone Monday was tough, though. The guards weren’t completely to blame. Hopkins wouldn’t go as far as to say it all fell apart because of the guards. There were flaws everywhere.The flaws surfaced because of Pittsburgh’s ability to play both inside and outside. It started with physical play in the paint, as Robinson and Pitt center Gary McGhee dominated a helpless, solo Rick Jackson for offensive rebound after offensive rebound. After conquering the center of the zone, the Panthers then bombed away from outside.The links were formed in the chain. It broke the circle.‘It’s pick your poison,’ Hopkins said. ‘They execute really well. There were even times without a screen, screens work really well against our zone. But I think Coach was really upset they were driving down low.’Joseph missedSyracuse was without its leading scorer, Joseph, and it showed. Especially early.After falling and hitting his head hard on the court Saturday against Cincinnati, Joseph didn’t play a minute in the second half and remained in the locker room after halftime. As a result, he didn’t travel with the team to Pittsburgh Monday.‘First time watching Syracuse on TV since HS … Going to watch and learn,’ Joseph wrote via Twitter prior to Monday’s tip-off.Joseph’s leadership — and his 14.6 points per game — was definitely missed. The Orange missed its first 10 shots and didn’t get on the scoreboard until 11:56 was left in the first half. Joseph had been especially hot of late as well. Before Saturday, Joseph was averaging 20.6 points on 33-for-61 (59 percent) shooting from the field in his previous five games.Instead, James Southerland was thrust into the starting lineup in a hostile environment against the highest-ranked team Syracuse has played all season.‘You just have to play with what you have,’ Boeheim said. ‘There’s nothing you can do about that. Injuries happen, and you just have to go out and play. Obviously, (Joseph) is a big part of our team and was certainly missed tonight.’In his first career start, Southerland score eight points on 3-for-8 shooting, but Boeheim said he was unimpressed with his aggressiveness.‘He can’t play (38) minutes and grab just one rebound,’ Boeheim said.With No. 7 Villanova visiting the Carrier Dome Saturday, Boeheim was not ready to predict if Joseph will be ready to return to the court. At this point, he said, it’s still anybody’s guess.Said Boeheim: ‘We’ll see when we get back.’ Published on January 17, 2011 at 12:00 pm Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Coach Chip KellySince taking over in 2009 for Mike Bellotti, who served as coach for 14 years, Kelly has only built upon the success of his predecessor, winning 31 of his first 36 games, including two Pac-12 championships.Kelly’s potent spread offense has made the Ducks near-impossible to stop at times. Last season, they ranked first nationally in scoring offense and eighth in the season prior.Perhaps most important to USC, Kelly is 2-0 against the Trojans, with wins against both Kiffin and former USC coach Pete Carroll.“You hope anytime that you play somebody that you learn from it and get better,” Kiffin said about last season’s loss to the Ducks. “And we’ll continue to do what we’ve done in general this year, which is play more guys and rotate guys in and make sure that we’re getting lined up.” Running back De’Anthony Thomas De’Anthony Thomas, a one-time USC commit who spurned the Trojans last February to sign a letter of intent to play for Oregon, has made an immediate impact in just his first year with the program.Appearing in 10 games, the former Crenshaw High standout has rushed for 366 yards and five touchdowns in addition to leading the Ducks in receiving with 27 catches for 423 yards and seven touchdowns, though standing at just 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds.“The only guy that I’ve probably seen like that was Reggie [Bush],” USC coach Lane Kiffin said following Tuesday’s practice when asked about Thomas’ explosiveness. “The way that he can start and stop and then how fast he can cut is really special. That’s why he may be the best player in the country.” Once again, No. 4 Oregon boasts a high-powered offensive attack. The Ducks’ offense ranks third nationally in scoring, averaging 46.7 points per game, and ninth in total offense at 498.3 yards per contest heading into Saturday’s nationally-televised, primetime matchup against No. 18 USC. Here’s a look at three players and a coach who make the Ducks’ offense fly.Quack attack · Darron Thomas, a dual-threat quarterback, is the leader under center for Oregon’s quick-strike offense this season. – Daily Trojan file photoRunning back LaMichael JamesThough he began the year as a Heisman Trophy candidate, James rushed for just 54 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in Oregon’s season opener against No. 1 LSU at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Tex., a 40-27 loss that dropped the Ducks to No. 14 in the USA Today coaches poll.But since then, James has been electric.Through eight games — including wins over then-No. 18 Arizona State and then-No. 4 Stanford — the Texas native has rushed for 1,207 yards and 12 touchdowns, averaging 7.9 yards per carry and vaulting himself back into consideration for the Heisman Trophy. A recent Sports Illustrated projection ranked James No. 6 in the Heisman race.The 5-foot-9 running back has proven problematic for USC before. In a 53-22 win over the Trojans last season at the Coliseum, he amassed 239 yards and three touchdowns on the ground on 36 carries. Similarly, in a 47-20 win over USC at Autzen Stadium in 2009, James, then a freshman, ran for 183 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Darron ThomasThough many of the Ducks’ SportsCenter highlights tend to center around either James or De’Anthony Thomas, junior quarterback Darron Thomas, is the trigger man for the Ducks’ offensive attack.Taking over under center in 2010 after Jeremiah Masoli was dismissed from the team after being cited for misdemeanor traffic and drug offenses, including possession of marijuana, Darron Thomas completed 61.5 percent of his passes for 30 touchdowns, playing an instrumental role in the Ducks’ undefeated regular season and appearance in the BCS national title game.This season, Darron Thomas has been just as impressive, with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 22:5 in addition to two rushing touchdowns.
A look at what’s happening around the majors Friday___BACK IN THE SHUFFLEThe Cardinals are set to resume their season by hosting the Cubs. St. Louis has been off since last Friday when two players returned positive coronavirus tests. Seven players in total have tested positive, including star catcher Yadier Molina. Ace Jack Flaherty (1-0, 2.57), who said he kept his arm fresh this week by throwing baseballs into a hotel mattress, is set to pitch against Chicago veteran Jon Lester (1-0, 0.82)PULLING AWAYThe season is only two weeks old, but the New York Yankees could have a commanding lead on AL East-rival Tampa Bay by the end of the weekend. The reigning AL East champions Yankees are 9-3 to start this 60-game season and four games ahead of the Rays entering their four-game weekend series. Tampa Bay was supposed to be New York’s biggest obstacle to a repeat but already has work to do. Yankees righty Masahiro Tanaka (0-0, 3.38) faces Rays lefty Blake Snell (0-0, 5.40).RED-HOT RAMIREZIndians slugger José Ramírez seems to have found his vintage form after a down 2019. The switch-hitter has homered from both sides of the place twice in the first 15 games of this season, a first in major league history, according to STATS. Coming off three straight wins against Cincinnati, Cleveland is set to open a three-game series in Chicago against the AL Central-rival White Sox.LET’S TRY THAT AGAINMLB announced changes to the regular season schedule Thursday to account for 21 games postponed in the first two weeks by coronavirus issues, and a few clubs are looking at unusual finishes. The Phillies and Marlins are set to play seven times in five days next month, and Miami will finish the season playing 27 games in 23 days, a stretch featuring no days off and four doubleheaders in a 10-day span. Philadelphia — which has not even had a player test positive since opening day — is slated for six doubleheaders in 60 games, meaning 20% of their games this season will be just seven innings long.Image credits: AP SUBSCRIBE TO US Last Updated: 7th August, 2020 07:54 IST LEADING OFF: Cards Back In Action, Yanks Seizing AL East The Cardinals are set to resume their season by hosting the Cubs.
