Share Image via: DavidMartynHunt/FlickrFolks go ga-ga over gettin’ it in. Smashin’. Knockin’ boots. Getting busy. Bumpin’ and grindin’. Dancing the horizontal cha-cha. Doing the nasty. Or, for you more traditional types, engaging in sexual intercourse. And yes, there is something to be said for the magic of having your body contorted and your hair all mussed as you huff and puff and sweat it out with the object of your desire. (Phew, is it ever.)But there’s also something so simplistically sexy and genuinely seductive about a kiss. It’s so personal and intimate and, unlike the ol’ naked hokey pokey, you can do it in public without fear of arrest or YouTube superstardom. Kissing also has a heap of health benefits, though, that are added bonuses to an already good thing. Tilt your head, close your eyes and pucker up — now for more reasons than just a little hot lip action.•Kissing keeps you young. Or, at the very least, young-looking. Studies show that amorous folks use 30 facial muscles to kiss, a sexy workout that tones cheeks and tightens the chin.•Kissing relieves allergies. Sufferers say amen! Histamine production can slow during a 30 minute make-out, relieving symptoms like sneezing and runny nose. Instead of reaching for a tissue, go in for a little lip action.•Kissing pumps you up. You don’t need to jump out of a plane or walk across hot coals to get a rush (insert hefty sigh of relief here). Stay safe and get a nice, hot kiss instead — it creates adrenaline, gets your blood pumping, and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.•Kissing is like a mini-vaccination. Your lip lock triggers the release of antibodies that fight off disease-causing bacteria. And it’s a heck of a lot more fun than getting jabbed in the arm with a needle.•Kissing is relaxing. That floating-on-a-cloud feeling after getting some sugar is from increased endorphins and oxytocin — your body’s built-in feel-good and calming chemicals, respectively.•Kissing gives you pretty teeth. Well, that might be a teensy exaggeration, but the spit swapping works to neutralize nasty acids that cause tooth decay and may exchange mineral salts that strengthen enamel.•Kissing helps you live longer. Couples who give their significant other a little smooch before they go their separate ways in the morning live five years longer than those that don’t.•Kissing burns calories. You can melt up to 6 calories a minute during the course of a smoldering smooch, so instead of skipping dessert on a date, kindly ask your beau: are you planning on giving me a nice, long, hot kiss goodnight?Written by Janelle Harris on CafeMom’s blog, The Stir

Steve Smith has been plying his trade in cricket competitions around the world as he is banned from international cricket for a year by Cricket Australia for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal.He returned to cricket at the Global T20 Canada with Toronto Nationals in June and is now playing for the Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League, where he is trying to work on an aspect of his game, that helped him burst onto the scene in Australian cricket.Smith, who starred for the Tridents in their win against Jamaica Tallawahs on Wednesday, said that he is trying to work on his bowling action and follow Shahid Afridi’s footsteps.”I’ve sort of changed a few things up [in my bowling]. I’m trying to model my action on Shahid Afridi, pushing it through and try to bowl fast into the wicket. Fortunately it worked tonight,” Smith said.”He [Afridi] has been a terrific leg-spinner. I can’t get the momentum into the ball [with my usual action] as I’m growing older. Hopefully I don’t have to bowl too much!”Steve Smith performed with the bat & ball today and hence the #Playoftheday from match 14 belongs to him #CPL18 pic.twitter.com/xLIVvQpJ0MCPL T20 (@CPL) August 23, 2018Smith smashed 63 off 44 balls with the bat and then followed it up with a 2/19 in three overs as they the Tridents beat the Tallawahs by two runs in a thriller at Lauderhill.Smith, who rarely bowls now, had made his name as a leg-spinner during his early days. Smith at that point was considered to be the next big spinner in Australia but he gradually concentrated on his batting and his bowling took a back seat.advertisementAnd what a move it turned to be.Since making his international debut for Australia in January 2010, Smith has gone onto represent the Aussies in 202 matches across all formats and has scored 10,061 runs. He is currently the No.2 Test batsman despite being out of international cricket since March.Smith, who missed the Indian Premier League as well for his suspension, will miss Australia’s series against South Africa, Australia and Sri Lanka as his ban will not get over before April, 2019.He along with David Warner, who is also playing cricket in leagues, are expected to return to the Australia squad for the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.

Story Highlights Twenty-six-year-old Constable Davian Martin has created history by becoming the youngest LASCO/Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Police Officer of the Year, after copping the title for 2018/19.Constable Martin received his award during the 18th annual presentation ceremony at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel, New Kingston, on Tuesday (May 8).Topping the competition came as no surprise to the young lawman, as he said he knew he would have won after it was announced that he got the most social media votes of this year’s nine finalists, from members of the public.“I knew I could do it, not only because I got the highest number of votes from the public, but also due to the fact that I have created a number of initiatives in the parish of Manchester aimed at transforming the lives of the youth who live there,” he told JIS News.According to the report of the competition’s judges, Constable Martin, who has served the JCF’s Area 3 Headquarters in Mandeville, Manchester, for the last seven years, has been a strong community and youth advocate, and leader of the Mandeville Police Youth Club, which recorded a boost in membership from 30 to over 80 persons under his stewardship.Additionally, he organised a 5K Run/Walk, the proceeds of which were donated to Mandeville and Percy Junior Hospitals, and initiated an annual ‘Feed the Street People Programme’. These were among the notable factors propelling him to the coveted award.Constable Martin said he enjoys being a police officer, noting that it was his childhood aspiration to join the JCF and follow in the footsteps of his father, David Martin.“After seeing the love hat my dad got from the community as a police officer, and the difference that he made in the community… I wanted to be like him and I wanted to make a difference like him,” Constable Martin said.He added that the leadership skills his father demonstrated lead him to become the responsible, caring and determined police officer he is today.Constable Martin was awarded with a cash prize of $350,000 from LASCO, along with the winner’s trophy.Guest speaker, National Security Minister, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang, congratulated Constable Martin, and thanked LASCO for supporting the programme for the last 18 years.“They recognise three of our critical areas in public service – the police force, the teachers and the nurses, who account for a very large part of the public service and carry out very important services in the public sector and (are) oftentimes not recognised,” Dr. Chang said.In his address, Founder and Executive Chairman, LASCO Affiliated Companies, Lascelles Chin, said his organisation takes pleasure in giving back to the police officers who risk their lives daily to serve Jamaicans.“For 18 years, LASCO has been committed to making the men and women of the force know that LASCO values their service and protection. Our public-service professionals – teachers, principals, nurses and police officers – are the backbone of our democracy and way of life. They are at the core of all we do and they keep the wheels of a society in balance,” he said.Sharing the honours with Constable Martin this year, were first runner-up, Sergeant Florezel Thompson of the Motorised Patrol Division, and second runner-up, Constable Noel Chang, of the Mobile Reserve. They were awarded cash prizes of $250,000 and $100,000 respectively.The Police Officer of the Year Awards Programme was initiated in 2000 through a partnership between LASCO and the JCF to publicly acknowledge the professionalism and dedication of the members of the force.

The Ohio State women’s basketball team’s Big Ten slate hasn’t been kind to them this year. It was more of the same for the Buckeyes against Nebraska Thursday, as the Cornhuskers dropped OSU, 62-53. In the process, the Buckeyes lost their seventh conference game this season. They might be losing hope of a turnaround, too. “To be honest, it’s hard to come to practice and to try to be positive,” said OSU senior guard Amber Stokes. OSU, which sits 10th in the conference, struggled to match the Cornhuskers‘ (15-6, 5-3) marksmanship from behind the arc. En route to what is now a three-game winning streak for Nebraska, the Cornhuskers unloaded 25 3-point shots and connected on nine of them. That theme seemed apparent early in the contest. Less than two minutes into the game, the Cornhuskers scored two 3-pointers while the Buckeyes struggled to make a basket. OSU’s shots clanked off the iron time and time again, but for a while, it seemed Nebraska wasn’t faring much better. After the initial 10 minutes of the contest, though, when both teams only made 25 percent of their shots, the Cornhuskers improved to 38 percent of their shots and the Buckeyes to 33 percent. Nebraska, however, proved to be the more aggressive team in the first half, including a 5-of-13 outing from behind the arc. Conversely, OSU missed all seven of the 3-point attempts in the game’s first act. Despite OSU senior guard Tayler Hill’s 12 first-half points and junior center Ashley Adams’ eight points, the Cornhuskers continued to build a cushion between themselves and the Buckeyes and head into intermission leading, 34-24. It also didn’t help that OSU turned the ball over 10 times compared to Nebraska’s five miscues. The second half started off better for the Buckeyes, with a jumper by redshirt junior center Aleksandra Dobranic within the first ten seconds. On the subsequent possession, Nebraska turned the ball over, which translated into an easy layup for Hill, who finished the night with 22 points. But for every shot the Buckeyes made, the Cornhuskers had an answer. Their lead, which withstood a 41 percent outing from the floor from OSU, never fell below six points for the rest of the half. Part of that had to do with Nebraska junior forward Jordan Hooper’s season-high 28 points. “My teammates did a really good job of finding me and I just shot it,” Hooper said after the game. OSU head coach Jim Foster said that he thought OSU’s defense was weak on Hooper. “I don’t think we did a great job of identifying where Hooper was. And when you have a player like that, you don’t start your defense under the 3-point line, you start it one foot outside the 3-point line,” Foster said. “That just comes with experience and understanding and making decisions. And hopefully we learn something from them.” The Buckeyes (11-10, 1-7 Big Ten) are now 10-3 at home this season. OSU is set to next take on Indiana Sunday in Bloomington, Ind., at 2 p.m.
Everton current manager Sam Allardyce has insisted he is winning over the club’s fans, even though he has been receiving criticism for the kind of football the team has been recently showcasing.This comes after he was harshly criticised on and off the field, even during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Huddersfield. There seems to be no clear reason as to why there is such dissatisfaction with him as when he came to the club, Everton were 13th in the table but are now standing at the eighth spot.“It’s an entertainment game, you’re trying to capture hearts and minds, and I think, particularly from a home point of view, we’ve achieved that,” Allardyce shared, according to BBC.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…He has led the team to 9 wins, out of 22 played games since joining at the end of November.“We’ve obviously got room for improvement and hopefully that will be a big performance and another win,” Allardyce added, seemingly not quite disturbed by the negative feedback he has been receiving lately.
Arturo Vidal has still one more year on his contract with Bayern Munich but the midfielder admitted that he has got a lot of offers from other clubs and he will consider his future.The former Juventus player claimed that it is possible that he will change teams but he will only move to the club which is at least fighting for the Champions League because he knows his worth and qualities.The Chilean spoke about his future as he said, according to Gianluca Di Marzio:Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“I still have a year left on my contract with Bayern, I am very calm. I know my worth and know how to play important games. For this reason, I have many offers every time the market opens.”“This time I am going to take it easy, my agent will think of this. I will look only to relax and recover in the best way possible and to see if I am changing squads or not.”“The most important thing is to be 100%. If I change teams, it will be to go to a team who fights for the Champions League.”
Coach Walter Mazzarri spoke before today’s match on how the team has “picked up fewer points than we deserved”In an early Italian Lega Serie A match-up, Torino will play against Napoli.And for Torino’s manager Walter Mazzarri, his team does not deserve to be in the place they are right now, but on a better spot.The Granata are in 12th place, after only one victory, two draws and one defeat in the competition.“I expect our fans to be passionate, fired up and give us a hand to put in a great performance,” said the coach in his press conference as reported by Football Italia.Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“So far we’ve picked up fewer points than we deserved. It angers me when we play well and don’t win the game, such as against Udinese. We dominated there for 90 minutes and were very unlucky to concede a goal.”“Napoli represent an important test for us. If we can build on the second half performances against Roma and Inter, that’d be a big step forward,” he added.“I don’t like to make comparisons. Napoli plays well and Ancelotti is one of the top Coaches in the world, not to mention a lovely person. They drew 0-0 with Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League this week, but absolutely dominated that match. If they played it again, they’d win 3-0 or 4-0.”“Marek Hamsik is playing in a new role, even if it’s the one people wanted me to use him in all those years ago, as a playmaker. Napoli is still a very strong squad and we’ll see where they end up,” he concluded.
Gary Neville has urged Manchester United’s strikers to pick a cue from Liverpool duo of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah if they want to be clinical in front of goal.A much improved second half attacking performance saw Mourinho’s men overcome a goal deficit to lead Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge but were eventually pegged back by Barkley’s last-gasp equaliser.“They need more from the front three, there’s so much talent there,” he told the Mirror via Sky Sports.“If you think of Lukaku, [Alexis] Sanchez, Martial, and Rashford, they need more from them.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I want to see more runs past Lukaku. I want the two wide players, whoever they are – you see what Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah do for Liverpool, how they make those narrow runs inside.“I’m not saying they have to play narrow but wherever you start, you’ve got to end up in goalscoring positions more often and you’ve got to show that little bit of quality and composure in the final third.United fans would be hoping for a win when the Red Devils trade tackles with Juve in the Champions League at Old Trafford.
