Mothers are masters at helping their children meet this full range of human needs: from providing physical nourishment and safety, love and affection, all the way up to supporting emotional and spiritual growth.Survey respondents report their mothers as heroic in helping them progress through the various stages of Maslow’s model – even if they don’t call it that. A good mother feeds you, protects you, loves you, helps you connect with others and encourages you to become your best self. She’s fulfilling what psychologists including me have identified as the four important functions of a hero: provide defense and protection; embody intelligence and wisdom; model moral behavior; and promote enhancement and inspiration.Here’s how moms do it.1. Mothers defend and protectAmazing stories abound of mothers doing whatever it takes to save their children, whether lifting astronomical weights or sacrificing their own lives. It is commonplace to see headlines about mothers saving and protecting their children in the most harrowing of circumstances.Respondents reminisced about their own ‘Mama Bears.’Holocene Eco Pros/Shutterstock.comThe protection function of heroes is seen in the comments of survey respondents about why their mothers are their heroes. Typical responses include, “My mother protected me from neighborhood bullies” and “My mother kept me safe from predators.” In her review of the psychological mechanisms of motherhood, Rebecca M. Fischer, a student researcher here at the University of Richmond, found that mothers are “biologically driven to protect, care for and motivate their children to succeed.”Other colleagues of mine at Richmond, neuroscientists Craig H. Kinsley and Kelly G. Lambert, have discovered that motherhood changes the brain in female rats, producing maternal behaviors directed toward protecting their young from danger. In human beings, too, women’s brains undergo significant remodeling that lasts more than two years after birth. These changes help women with the transition into motherhood and may include a readiness to protect and defend the baby.Human infants are among the most vulnerable of all primates. No wonder our species evolved to have mothers who risk it all to protect us when we are so small and fragile.2. Mothers provide intelligence and wisdomScientists are beginning to uncover evidence suggesting that intelligence is inherited more from mothers than from fathers.Beyond this genetic inheritance, mothers tend to be committed to passing on wisdom to their children. My own mother taught me that the most important things in life are intangible and cannot be bought – love, integrity, character and honesty.Many of Americans’ most cherished heroes credit their mothers for teaching them fundamental truths about life. George Washington apocryphally observed that “all I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” Famed musician Stevie Wonder has reportedly called his mother his “greatest teacher.”And mothers often impart intentional life lessons to their children. Former first lady Michelle Obama observed: “Life is practice and I tell my girls this every day. You are practicing who you are going to be. … Do you want to be dependable? Then you have to be dependable. If you want people to trust you then you have to be trustworthy.”Legendary tales of heroism almost always include mentors who possess enduring wisdom and are willing to share it. Mothers serve as mentors to their sons and daughters when they need guidance while growing up.3. Mothers are moral modelsA good mother tries to provide an example of high standards of human conduct.Moms do a lot by example.James Wheeler/Unsplash, CC BYIn his 2016 Presidential Proclamation of Mother’s Day, Barack Obama emphasized how mothers “shape America’s character.” He noted how many mothers “struggle to raise children while pursuing their careers or as single parents working to provide for their families” and how mothers lead “by powerful example and overcoming obstacles so their sons and daughters can reach their fullest potential.”As children, many people watch their mothers’ selflessness and daily sacrifices and learn that we’re all called to perform these acts of kindness for others. Heroes are beacons of hope who demonstrate how to behave virtuously. Sounds like a lot of moms.4. Mothers enhance and inspireThe respondents to my colleagues’ and my hero surveys never fail to mention how their mothers made them better people. Typical responses include, “My mother inspired me to become my best self” and “My mother motivated me to develop my fullest potential.”A good mother thinks the world of her children and wants what’s best for them. She encourages her kids to reach for the stars and maximize their fullest potential. As Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg has said, her mother “raised me and my sister to believe that we could do anything, and we believed her.”My own research on heroism indicates that hero stories throughout the ages were designed to energize and motivate their audience to become better people – an important part of the job description for moms, too.The job of a mother doesn’t end at a certain age.De Visu/Shutterstock.comDespite any flaws, moms come out on topDo women instantly become saints when they have a child? Of course not. Certainly there are plenty of mothers out there who don’t fit these somewhat idealized descriptions.But of all the people to pick from as heroes – presidents, humanitarians, legends, coaches and family members – our survey respondents listed mothers as their number one hero. Mothers, we learned, meet people’s needs and mold them into their best selves more effectively than any other individual the respondents encountered.Mother’s Day far exceeds Father’s Day in terms of greeting card sales and gift expenditures and for good reason. Mothers come out on top in our poll of heroes because of the free offering of love that they provide. Good moms are there for you when you need emotional support. They hug you. They comfort you when you cry and let you sit on their laps. They kiss you on your cheeks before school and at bedtime at night.Yes, social norms are changing and fathers are taking on the role of nurturers more than in previous generations. But the emerging psychological science of heroism helps explain why many people reserve a special place in their hearts for their heroic mothers. Scott T.

French Top 14 Semi Final highlights ahead of this weekend’s Final

first_imgThursday Jun 7, 2012 French Top 14 Semi Final highlights ahead of this weekend’s Final Toulouse and Toulon will meet in the Top 14 final this coming weekend after having got through their respective semi finals with wins over Castres and Clermont. While there weren’t many tries on show, there was still plenty to talk about. In the first of the two games Toulouse beat Castres 24-15 thanks in large to the boot of Luke McAlister, who kicked six penalties. Castres came close, as we saw in the video of Vincent Clercs trysaver on Max Evans earlier in the week, but Toulouse remain on course. They will be aiming to win back to back titles after the solid win, despite Castres throwing everything at them. There were plenty of physical exchanges with Chris Masoe in particular throwing his weight around, which included a knock out blow on Toulouse captain Thierry Dusautoir.In the second semi final, which was far less entertaining but just as tight, Toulon pipped Clermont Auvergne 15-12 with a penalty from Jonny Wilkinson three minutes from time. Morgan Parra had an opportunity to tie the game with time up, but his kick dropped short by a matter of inches.“It was a shame for Morgan Parra at the end. The penalty kick was right in front, but a little too long. It was a great match and an important result for us,” Wilkinson told L’Equipe.“Now we are in the final and we have to do everything we can to get the result that we want. Getting to the final is good, but if we win it, it would be phenomenal.“Toulouse have a very experienced and powerful set of players and it will be another big challenge. We will have to prepare very well during the week, and then do all we can to stay in contention till the end of the match. We know it will be a big challenge, but that is why we play rugby.”Kick off in Paris on Saturday is at 18:00 local time.

Mathieu Bastareaud announces retirement a day after missing out on RWC 2019 selection

first_imgWednesday Jun 19, 2019 Mathieu Bastareaud announces retirement a day after missing out on RWC 2019 selection After failing to make Jacques Brunel’s Rugby World Cup 2019 training squad yesterday, France centre Mathieu Bastareaud has retired from international rugby. ADVERTISEMENTThe Toulon star shared a post on Instagram announcing his retirement. “I am happy, grateful and proud to have achieved this kid’s dream… I wish good luck to my teammates for this beautiful event that awaits them!” he said, referring to the world cup that he will miss out on.The 20 stone centre also wrote that “the road has not always been easy”, which is certainly true, as he has had a turbulent career. Since making his debut for France in 2009, the 30-year-old has gone on to earn 54 caps, but has been in and out of the team.Disciplinary problems and poor form have stultified Bastareaud’s career ever since making his debut, but on his day he was one of the most destructive players in world rugby. He has won a Grand Slam with France in 2010, and was part of the Toulon team that won three European titles, including being named Man of the Match in the 2013 final. ADVERTISEMENTHe had a good 2018 Six Nations with France, including a stunning performance against England, and was vice-captain in the 2019 championship, however, Brunel cited fitness as an issue when he was assembling his squad for the World Cup.READ MORE: Thomas and Bastareaud omissions surprise many as France name RWC 2019 squadAlthough his omission has come as a surprise to many, Bastareaud has still wished good luck to his teammates who will head to Japan in September. Bastareaud’s exclusion from the France team has now left him in limbo for six months before he joins Major League Rugby outfit Rugby United New York in January. Of course, the plan would have been to play in the World Cup, then start his six month loan in the United States. ADVERTISEMENTThe question is now whether he returns to Toulon then before moving to New York, as this would not have been factored into his plans. Despite his international career ending in disappointing circumstances, he leaves a legacy in French rugby as one of the most powerful backs in modern times.

The house is in a gated community, 8 minutes away from the city of Rosario traveling on the highway that connects it to the city of Córdoba.The lot is 30.69 meters wide by 29.66 meters deep. The front faces north, with the best sunlight, and the back, facing south, gets the strongest winds and storms.Save this picture!SketchRecommended ProductsLouvers / ShuttersRabel Aluminium SystemsElectric Folding Shading System – Rabel 14000Louvers / ShuttersLunawoodThermowood BattensEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornLouvers / ShuttersTechnowoodSunshade SystemsWhen the project was designed, weather conditions needed to be addressed carefully, as the neighborhood was in a vast, virtually clear flatland, with almost no trees to provide shade and protect from the wind.The above conditions of the site quickly determined that the building should be placed at the back of the lot to get the best sunlight from the north. The south façade is an opaque wall protecting from strong winds and storms, and grants more privacy with respect to neighboring lots. In addition, we decided to raise the house about 45 cm from the ground, a measure against possible flooding of the site.Save this picture!© Sebastián ClavereThe program is for a small summer house, which in turn has a large space that functions as dining room, living room, barbecue and eventually bedroom. The grill area should work both for the preparation of meals and also as a social gathering space.Save this picture!© Sebastián ClavereThe architectural “idea” can be summarized in the introduction of a rigid cube on the ground, which through design actions, addresses the constraints of the site and generates intermediate spaces (neither open nor closed), where the inhabitant feels “sheltered” inside a “cube” and in turn, visually and spatially connected with the outside.The form and introduction of the pool gives “movement” to the orthogonal composition of the “cube” and incorporates the “water” element into both the exterior landscape as well as the interior space of the house. This pool “embraces” the house generating different moments that accompany the path of the sun during the day.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Berlage Public Events Spring 2014EventHouse K2 / Pauliny Hovorka ArchitektiSelected Projects Share Argentina DT Puerto Roldán House / VismaraCorsi Arquitectos “COPY” Save this picture!© Sebastián Clavere+ 21 Share Houses “COPY” DT Puerto Roldán House / VismaraCorsi ArquitectosSave this projectSaveDT Puerto Roldán House / VismaraCorsi Arquitectoscenter_img Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/477631/dt-puerto-roldan-house-vismaracorsi-arquitectos Clipboard CopyHouses•Roldán, Argentina Covered Exterior Area:23.33 m2Courtyard Area:20.21 m2City:RoldánCountry:ArgentinaMore SpecsLess Specs CopyAbout this officeVismaraCorsi ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRoldánArgentinaPublished on February 18, 2014Cite: “DT Puerto Roldán House / VismaraCorsi Arquitectos” [Casa DT Puerto Roldán / VismaraCorsi Arquitectos] 18 Feb 2014.

No. 20 baseball open Big 12 play with a walk-off win over Texas

first_imgThe centerfielder leaped and grabbed the ball after it was already over the fence, robbing Zubia of a home run and sending the Lupton crowd into a frenzy. “If that’s not No. 1 on SportsCenter I’ll be disappointed,” Isola said. “That’s the best catch I’ve ever seen.”Propelled by Rizer’s catch and Lodolo’s pitching, the team was able to steal away a win from the Longhorns. “We were just trying to fight, put together good at-bats and hope for the best,” Isola said. The team hopes to continue its victory when it takes on the Longhorns again tomorrow. First pitch is set for 7:30 p.m. with Jake Eissler the likely starter for TCU. Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ Linkedin ReddIt The team entered the ninth inning down by 2 and finished it with a 3-2 victory. Photo by Jack Wallace printThe team entered the ninth inning down by 2 and finished it with a 3-2 victory. Photo by Jack WallaceA night characterized by strong pitching finished with the Horned Frogs’ offense rallying to a comeback victory over Texas. A bloop single to left field by Adam Oviedo in the bottom of the ninth finished off the team’s final-inning comeback and gave them the 3-2 victory in the series opener against the No. 9 Longhorns. h“In the game of baseball if you just put the ball into play, you don’t know what’s going to happen,” Oviedo said of his winning run. “I think tonight was a great example of that.” #LuptonMagic pic.twitter.com/aGSAT4uPlv— TCU Baseball (@TCU_Baseball) March 23, 2019 Heading into the ninth, the Horned Frogs were down 2-0 and had proved unable to get anything past Longhorns starting pitcher Bryce Elder. The sophomore went eight innings and only gave up five hits while striking out seven. “We just couldn’t put enough good at-bats together against Elder,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. Elder came out in the ninth and hit TCU catcher Alex Isola, starting the Horned Frogs rally that would end in a win. He was pulled after the at-bat for reliever Kamron Fields, who walked Jake Guenther and gave TCU runners on first and second with no outs. Fields had two wild pitches in the next at-bat, allowing Isola to score on the second one and cut the Texas lead to one point. Two more balls followed the wild pitches, resulting in an Austin Henry walk that put the game-winning run on first. “Henry’s at-bat was the at-bat,” Schlossnagle said. “To look horrible on the first breaking ball and then to get back into the at-bat, that was the at-bat of the game in my mind.”Down one with runners on first and third, Johnny Rizer followed Henry with a single that scored pinch runner Brad Czerniejewski to tie the game. “I just got in the box and I was telling myself ‘Put a barrel on the ball, you’re not going to strike out here your going to get a base hit’ and that’s what I did, just put a barrel on the ball,” Rizer said.Still with no outs, Oviedo came to the plate and dropped in a bloop single to complete the comeback. “That’s the stuff you dream for,” he said of the walkoff. “That’s why you come to TCU.”The Horned Frogs were able to keep the game close enough to come back in the ninth thanks to the pitching of ace Nick Lodolo and the defense behind him. Lodolo went eight innings and struck out nine batters. This season, he’s struck out at least eight in five of his six starts. “Nick’s going to give us 7 strong every time he comes up,” Isola said. “He’s got some of the best stuff I’ve caught.”While Lodolo limited the Longhorns to just two runs over eight innings, it almost doubled in the fourth inning. Zach Zubia turned on a Lodolo pitch and hit a shot to center that looked like a surefire two-run home run, until Rizer stepped in. HIGHWAY ROBBERY!!!

Challenges and Opportunities in the Latin American Micromobility Market – Forecast to 2025 –…

first_img Twitter Challenges and Opportunities in the Latin American Micromobility Market – Forecast to 2025 – ResearchAndMarkets.com By Digital AIM Web Support – March 4, 2021 Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp Facebook DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 15, 2021– The “Challenges and Opportunities in the Latin American Micromobility Market, Forecast to 2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. By 2025, market revenue is expected to grow at 6.6% CAGR for the bikesharing market with in excess of 127 thousand units in operation, and at 25.4% CAGR for the shared scooter market that is expected to have more than 100 thousand units in operation. The globally ongoing revolution in mobility technology and business model innovations will disrupt urban ecosystems, changing the way people, goods, and information are transported and localized within cities. In recent years, shared micromobility services, such as dockless scooters and bikesharing systems, have become increasingly popular across Latin American cities. Both local governments and private operators have been driving this market through various innovative business models and technological solutions adapted to the specific complexities of Latin American urban dynamics. The first bike-sharing systems were introduced in Latin America early in 2010, in Mexico City and Buenos Aires. However, those beta test systems were relatively rudimentary in terms of technology as well as operative efficiency. As years passed, more and more public systems were inaugurated across the region, and notable participants (operators, technology suppliers, or both together) positioned themselves in the fast growing shared micromobility market. The implementation of policies to incentivize active mobility has intrinsic objectives of diminishing private car usership, mitigating the negative effects of greenhouse gas emissions, promoting healthier lifestyles, and a general compact and highly efficient and resilient urban design. Many cities such as Santiago or Mexico City have made enormous progress in developing a mature and competitive micromobility service ecosystem. In late 2019, there were more than 59.5 thousand bikesharing units in operation in Latin American cities, operated by more than 30 companies. Moreover, there were 11 recently introduced shared scooter operators available in dozens of cities, with an estimated fleet in excess of 36.5 active devices. This research service examines the challenges and opportunities in the operation of shared micromobility services in the region. Many companies across the region have been facing substantial restraints for the development of their activities. Some of these are: the overall vulnerability of some business models, lack of profitability, stringent and inefficient municipal regulations, vandalism and theft impacting asset safety, and the devastating short-term impacts of COVID-19 lockdown measures in early 2020. There was a 31.6% fall in revenue from the bikesharing market and a 74.9% decline in shared scooter service market revenue, with many operators leaving the market. However, in the mid term, this research service has identified considerable growth opportunities for the overall shared micromobility market in LATAM, driven by market innovations, changes in mobility habits and transport modal choice behavior, and the vacant demand left after the 2020 COVID-19 crisis.
