CLEVELAND, Ohio -- At the time the rosters were announced for the NBA’s Rising Stars Challenge -- an exhibition featuring 20 of the top first- and second-year players from around the league -- the Cleveland Cavaliers were in the midst of an impressive performance against the Washington Wizards. It was more than two weeks ago.Then, after polishing off a 116-113 win, head coach Larry Drew and teammates celebrated Cedi Osman’s selection as part of Team World.Internally, the Cavaliers believed there was a chance for two players in the showcase. But opposing coaches passed over rookie Collin Sexton. Twice.“I’m just gonna use it as motivation.

CBB Betting Tip: How NCAA Tournament Motivation Creates Betting Value – The Action Network

The Action Network is a company for the curious.Two of my favorite tools — the FantasyLabs Trends tool and Bet Labs — are perfect for the inquisitive-minded. Any question you may have — whether teams on a back-to-back right before the NBA All-Star break are overvalued, for example — can be queried in seconds and possibly leveraged into a betting or DFS edge. One such question I had recently is whether the best teams in college basketball — those playing for the postseason and/or seeding — are undervalued by the betting market when they play the worst teams — those with essentially with nothing left to play for. Well, let’s dive into Bet Labs and find out… Does Postseason Motivation Create Betting Value? Let's block ads! (Why?) ...

Agencies practice what they preach with 'mature' content marketing strategies – Marketing Tech

Marketing Strategy
Every agency out there has got an opinion – at least, one that you probably have to pay for – about how you need to do content marketing. It’s gone beyond mere choice. More often it’s become a question of: quality or quantity? Naturally, some believe they can offer the content equivalent of the moon on a stick. Peter Bell, senior director at Marketo, wrote for this publication in November about what he called ‘Frankenblogging’; where off-cuts and half-formed ideas in a content library can be ‘stitched together’. Much is similarly made of user-generated content. In the same month Alain Mevellec, co-founder and CMO at Sellsy, noted how a company’s approach to customer feedback is “an important consideration in [its] culture, b...

Self-Care Tips to Help Me Cope When Others Go Through Tough Times – Pulmonary Fibrosis News

Self Help
Any patient living with a chronic illness is familiar with the topic of self-care. It’s something that many of our medical team members, especially the allied healthcare professionals, talk to us about. But practicing self-care is not always as easy as it sounds. It has taken me nearly three years of living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) to really understand the importance of self-care. It is an ongoing learning process for me, and I certainly haven’t perfected it yet. One of my New Year’s resolutions has been to focus more on self-care. Generally speaking, I’ve been doing a lot of this since 2019 began. My intention falls apart, however, when I learn that others are going through tough times. I have an overwhelming desire to help and sup...

Why Listening Drives Motivation – Forbes

Motivation
GettyGetty If you ask a group of people to raise their hand if they think they are above average at listening, a majority of them would have their hand in the air. Most of us believe we are good listeners. But listening is inherently hard to do. Why? Throughout our years of schooling, we spent a considerable amount of time learning reading, writing and speaking. Let's assume the average student spends about 12 years (grades 1-12) training their reading and writing skills and maybe even a year or two practicing speaking. What about listening? Looking back on your education, how many years have you spent training this critical skill? Likely none. Until I went through training to become a certified coach, I’d never practiced this skill in any deliberate wa...

<!-- --><!-- Hide Mobile side -->ELKHART, Ind. --- A University of Notre Dame associate professor lectured a crowd at the Elkhart Public Library on Wednesday night about the ease of misinformation online. Professor Tim Weninger broke down his study on basically how one like share or retweet of a misleading online article can affect a nation. “That share, that like has our name associated with it,” said Weninger. “It affects the news and opinions your friends see.”He said regular social media users are the ones who share the most fake news, not computers or otherwise known as ‘bots.’ One audience member asked if there is truly an impact. Reports of Kamala Harris, a 2020 democratic presidential candidate, said she told...
Motivation, Desire And Intention in Tennis – Tennis World USA

Motivation, Desire And Intention in Tennis – Tennis World USA

Motivation
A great number of tennis players have roughly the same level of talent and resources available to them. Yet, some of these players become successful stars and other fade into the night. Why is that? The number one reason is motivation. Motivation (also read: Be like water and not like ice) for success pushes players out of their comfort zones and to greater heights. They are forced to go beyond themselves to gain whatever edge they can, and being highly motivated is the only way of accomplishing such difficult tasks. Of course, this is all a mental challenge, not a physical one. When motivation, desire and intention combine successfully in the mind, when these positive mental states complement each other, great things can be achieved both on and off the court. It is important to rem...
