first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr The Nelson Daily Sports The sporting public has heard a lot of Rossland’s George Grey and his success on the cross-country scene. Now that Grey has retired, the fans may start to hear a little more about Nelson’s Shawn DeGroot. DeGroot, 16, won the silver medal in the Junior Boy’s 1994 at the 2011 Haywood Canadian Ski Nationals held last month in Canmore, Alta. “It wasn’t really a surprise . . . okay maybe a bit, in the distance races,” DeGroot, who placed 10th overall in the Junior Boy’s Division, told The Nelson Daily. “I got about the same results last year, but I improved on my sprinting (in Canmore).” The 2011 Haywood Canadian Ski Nationals attracts all of the top athletes in Canada. DeGroot, who skis under the Rossland Black Jack banner, competed in all of the major races — skate, classic, sprint and mass start. He accumulated 217 points in the four races. “The competition was fun, (but) it was surprisingly warm out (for Canmore),” explained DeGroot, who raced three of the four days in a T-shirt. “That means using klister for classic races for grip, it’s really sticky wax (kind of like tree sap or honey) that makes a mess and is a real pain to clean up.” Although he skis for Black Jack to receive expert advice from former National Ski Team coach Dave Wood, DeGroot spends most of his time training on his old stomping grounds at the Nelson Nordic Ski Trails. “I go (Black Jack) occasionally to train and get technique, but still do the majority of my training in Nelson,” said DeGroot, adding his dedication, commitment, perseverance, and lots of time on the trails as the reason for his success. The season has gone extremely well for the 5’9”, 140-pound dynamo. DeGroot finished first overall 1994 for the BC cup series, seventh and first in 1994 in junior boys at the NorAms (North Americans) in Kelowna and fourth in the Rossland Blackjack Loppet. DeGroot, in Grade 11 at L.V. Rogers, still has another year in the junior circuit. So next year is a big one for him. “I’d like to make the B.C. ski team, get good results at cross country running provincials and continue skiing and training hard and to have fun,” DeGroot, who finished 24th overall at the 2010 B.C. High School Cross Country running championships in the fall. “I’d also like to qualify for FIS junior Nordic World Ski Championships in Ezerum, Turkey, although that would be quite tough.” Those goals might be lofty for some. But if you’ve ever seen Shawn DeGroot train, his determination and perseverance, that a bet you don’t want to [email protected]last_img read more

first_imgIt’s a proven fact to always have a backup plan just in case that original idea goes south.Dryden Hunt knows all too well things do not always go as planned as the Nelson Minor Hockey product prepares to enter the world of professional hockey.After not hearing his name called out for the second consecutive year last week at the 2015 National Hockey League entry draft  in Sunrise, Florida, the 6-foot, 200-pound forward already has a direction in place.Hunt, 19, is off to the La Belle Province Friday to attend the Montreal Canadiens Development Camp, which begins Sunday in Brossard, Quebec.“Montreal contacted me before the draft to say if I didn’t go in the draft they’d like to offer me a tryout,” Hunt told The Nelson Daily from Kelowna where he’s training for the upcoming season.“I was hoping I would get drafted but now I’m heading to Montreal and I couldn’t be happier.”Hunt was optimistic his name would be called after a stellar season in the Western Hockey League with Regina Pats and Medicine Hat Tigers.Hunt put up 83 points during the regular season before adding five goals in 10 playoff games for the Tigers.“Ya, I am a little disappointed,” Hunt lamented. “I mean with all those rankings before (draft) it kind of puts into your head that there’s always a possibility.“I thought I had a pretty good year but unfortunately it didn’t happen.”It’s tough,” he added, “but I’m now heading to Montreal with guys who got drafted so this is an exciting opportunity to show what I’ve got.”Hunt leaves Friday for the Habs Development Camp. He is part of a list of tryout-invitees the Montreal Scouting Department has put together.There is also more than 20 Montreal draft prospects from the past three seasons, including Hunt’s teammate at Medicine Hat, Matthew Bradley.Hunt also said former Nelson Minor Hockey graduate Tim McGauley is also attending the camp.McGauley played the last three seasons in Brandon, where he registered 105 points last season scoring 42 goals playing center.“It’s every kids dream to get drafted but some players take a little tougher road toward their dream,” Hunt explained.“For me I didn’t get drafted two years in a row, but I’ll just go to Montreal and try to prove people wrong and try to make the most of my opportunity.”The Habs also invited Hunt to their Prospects Camp in September.So the son of Carla DeBiasio and Jeff Hunt has two chances to impress the coaching staff.Smart man that Dryden Hunt.Smart man.last_img read more

first_imgWhy do we sleep? A new theory identifies a vital purpose for those seemingly lost hours.During the day, we all collect vast quantities of information through our senses. Not all of it is useful, but if we don’t condense it to essentials, memories can be like piles of clutter in a hoarder’s house.Evidence announced by New Scientist supports the “housekeeping” theory of sleep. Clare Wilson says that the “mystery of what sleep does to our brains may finally be solved.”It is one of life’s great enigmas: why do we sleep? Now we have the best evidence yet of what sleep is for – allowing housekeeping processes to take place that stop our brains becoming overloaded with new memories….Support is growing for a theory that sleep evolved so that connections in the brain can be pruned down during slumber, making room for fresh memories to form the next day. “Sleep is the price we pay for learning,” says Giulio Tononi of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who developed the idea.Experiments with rats showed smaller synapses after sleep, potentially allowing room for new memories. Other observations support the idea.If the housekeeping theory is right, it would explain why, when we miss a night’s sleep, the next day we find it harder to concentrate and learn new information – we may have less capacity to encode new experiences. The finding suggests that, as well as it being important to get a good night’s sleep after learning something, we should also try to sleep well the night before.It could also explain why, if our sleep is interrupted, we feel less refreshed the next day. There is some indirect evidence that deep, slow-wave sleep is best for pruning back synapses, and it takes time for our brains to reach this level of unconsciousness.It took 4 years of study to identify the brain tissue responding to sleep, Wilson says.The Creator thought of everything. Imagine! While your conscious mind is mostly off, your body’s night crew knows what to do and springs into action.Sleep is usually a pleasurable part of life, taking up nearly a third of our lifetimes. Enjoy it, but don’t over use it. “Love not sleep, lest you come to poverty,” Solomon warned. Give the housekeeping crew enough time to work but not to loaf.

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Effective prospecting requires that you choose an effective medium for communication. Some forms of communication are more effective than others, often by a wide margin.Face-to-Face: This is the platinum standard. The more important the communication and conversation, the more certain it is that you should have the conversation face-to-face. The best and most important relationships you will ever have will come as a result of—and be maintained by—spending time with that person. But in-person prospecting isn’t an option for most salespeople.Video conference: Not as good as face-to-face, but more effective than most other mediums. You can see the other person’s face, and you can pick up physical cues that you might miss on the telephone. Video is the best alternative if you can’t be there in person. Someday soon, this may be the way we make the first contact.Phone calls: The phone isn’t in the top two choices when you need to have an important conversation, but it is still better than everything that follows. The phone allows you to engage in dialogue in real time. You can pick up verbal cues. Both you and the person you are speaking to can respond to what each other says. More still, you can collaborate and explore. You can also ask for commitments, and resolve your dream client’s concerns or reservations.Text Message: Yes, I put text messages above email. If children are our future, real-time communication will dominate. Text allows for short, immediate responses from another party. Every person you know has their cell phone within reach, even when they are sleeping. Almost everyone responds in real time. No one has 3,200 unanswered text messages in an inbox. More and more, this short form communication is going to be used for business.Email: Email isn’t an effective medium for most communication. It’s perfect to follow up meetings with information, next steps, and a record of what occurred in other meetings. It’s terrific for calendar invites. But it is horrible for meaningful conversations because it allows the person reading the email to read a particular tone into the text. Small issues seem much larger. Large issues seem smaller. Email also doesn’t allow for efficient or effective dialogue. Which makes it a poor first choice for prospecting.Mail: I remember when hearing the computer say “You’ve got mail,” was exciting and when snail mail was boring. Now the idea of getting more email is terrifying and getting real mail from another human being is a novelty. The fact that mail is a novelty means that it gets attention. Overnight packages fall into the category, too.You have to choose how you will engage with your prospective clients, and you want to select the medium that best enables you to achieve your outcome. Right now, it’s likely that it’s the phone.last_img read more

AFP PHOTO / Jewel SAMADNEW YORK — Rafael Nadal reflected on his roots as a child prodigy from the island of Mallorca and on the influence of his uncle Toni on Sunday after winning the US Open title.The 31-year-old Spaniard defeated South Africa’s Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 for his third US Open title and his 16th career Grand Slam crown after having taken a 10th French Open trophy in June at Roland Garros.ADVERTISEMENT It has been a long journey for Nadal to his latest Grand Slam glory.Nadal won an under-12 regional crown at age eight and by 12 had captured Spanish and European age-group junior titles.By 15, he had turned professional and was facing such foes on the global circuit as Anderson.At 17, Nadal won his first match against Federer.At 19, he won the 2005 French Open in his debut, the first of nine Grand Slam titles in 10 years he would claim on the red clay of Roland Garros, cementing a legacy as the greatest player ever seen on the surface.It was early in his career when Nadal began his habit of biting the championship trophies he wins.Nadal added Wimbledon crowns in 2008 and 2010, an Australian Open title in 2009 and completed the career Grand Slam in 2010 by defeating Novak Djokovic in the US Open final, becoming the youngest in the Open era (since 1967) to complete the four-event career sweep.And only Nadal and Andre Agassi can say they have a career Grand Slam and an Olympic men’s singles gold medal, Nadal having claimed his in 2008 at Beijing.Nadal, the sixth left-hander to win a US Open title, added another crown at Arthur Ashe Stadium in 2013, again downing Djokovic in the final.Knee injuries took a toll throughout his career, costing him nine Slam appearances, and after he failed to even reach a Slam semi-final in 2015 and 2016 some figured his greatest moments were behind him.center_img Read Next Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC LATEST STORIES “It’s not one lesson.

I can only thank him for making me stronger.”When Nadal reclaimed the world number one ranking last month, it was the first since in more than three years he had topped the list.And when Federer lost in the US Open quarter-finals to Juan Martin del Potro, Nadal was ensured of keeping the top spot.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  But Nadal roared into the Australian Open final, losing to Federer, then captured his record 10th French Open crown in June, setting the stage for his title run in the Flushing Meadows fortnight.Only Nadal, Pete Sampras and Ken Rosewall have managed the feat of winning Grand Slam titles in their teens, 20s and 30s.last_img read more
