(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) LeBron James is a man that you don’t really need to piss off or motivate to get the very best out of him. He’s going to bring it on the court, regardless. With that being said, some extra motivation from the haters doesn’t hurt. Here’s what LeBron had to say about some of that motivation he received this summer (transcribed from interview with Spectrum SportsNet): (On not needing extra motivation)But I got some this summer. But I’m not going to talk about it, I wish I could elaborate more, my mom told me “Don’t talk about it, be about it”. There’s s

But where does the motivation come from? An international team of researchers led by scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now identified the neural circuit in the brain of fruit flies which makes them perform at their best when searching for food. The odor of vinegar or fruit lets fruit flies walk faster. To reach the food, they run until exhaustion. But despite their efforts, they do not get any closer t
As someone who loathes having to drag a coat around and hates wearing jeans, I always feel sad to see the back of summer. However, there’s one awesome thing about autumn — it’s the season of all things cosy. I enjoy nothing more than picking up a pumpkin spice latte on my way home from work for an evening of relaxation. Call me basic but it’s delicious. And if you’re in need of a little inspiration here are the seven great things to do on a Self Care Sunday. While self care practices may be dismissed by some as a a little wishy washy and indulgent, they're actually a perfect time to reflect and check in with yourself.You only need to scroll through Instagram to see that self care is pretty hot right now. The Danes refer to it as hygge which, as the New Yorker notes, roughly translates t
Eye-catching imagery has become essential to marketing your brand on social media. Finding, or creating the perfect image to help tell the story of your business can determine if your audience stops to learn more, or moves on. With over 3.2 billion images being shared each day (via Nielsen, 2018), there is a lot of content at the hands of businesses who want to use it. How copyright works But, before you hit "share" on a random image you find online — remember — just because it is online or on social media — does not mean you can use it for your brand. How copyrights work, both online and offline, is that if you create something new, you own the copyright to it. When you put something up online, it belongs to you, and you can take steps if someone tries to pass off your work as theirs.
Advertising is an art–a skill that, when used correctly, helps a business grow. When you think about it, advertising is the bread and butter of business, and if you’re hoping to get anywhere with a business, you better use everything at your disposal. That’s right, I’m talking about online marketing. I don’t need to sit here and tell you that the world has shifted into a digital landscape because you’d have to be blind to not notice. However, looking at some businesses, you’d think we still live in the early 90’s. Online marketing is important, if not your main source of advertising. But how effective is online marketing and, more importantly, how can you maximize effectiveness? The Effectiveness of Online Marketing Many studies have been conducted testing the
(Photo: Matt Cashore, 247Sports) Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly was blunt in his assessment of Notre Dame’s practice week in the wake of a 23-17 loss at No. 3 Georgia. They’re ready. He’s sure of it. But it’s time to prove it. “I’m encouraged by the way we prepared, but they have to go out and decide this is a football team that can sustain this week in and week out,” he said in clear reference to the oh-so-close but no victory cigar outing in Athen. “I told them today that they have to be determined that this is a game that defines who they are. They clearly understand that. I think they understand what that means.” Notre Dame media has continually referenced a players-only meeting called by the team’s seven captains before the practice week began on Monday. Kelly took over fro

By: Erik García Gundersen | 6 hours ago LeBron James isn’t normally someone who needs added motivation to be one of the greatest players ever. Usually, his mantra of Strive For Greatness is enough. But this summer, the first time since 2006 in which he had to watch the playoffs from the couch, was different. And while LeBron didn’t share too many details about what he called a “difficult” start to his offseason, he told Spectrum SportsNet’s Allie Clifton that he received extra motivation this summer. However, he wants to show that this year is different rather than describe how it will be different with his words. LeBron’s greatest form of expression has always been his play, anyway. “But I got some this summer,” James said about his
I've been afraid of emotional eating my whole life. But is it really so bad? Image: Getty Images By Rachel Kraus2019-09-27 10:00:00 UTC It's tough to practice real self-care when the internet's obsessed with #selfcare. Let Mashable help with our new series Me, My Self-Care & I. Not to brag, but I've had probably dozens of ice cream cones and hundreds of creamy scoops during my 30 years on this Earth. Still, the cone that I remember the most is one I didn’t eat. My parents practically airlifted themselves in to the wilderness camp where I broke my nose during the summer of 2004. While we drove away from a doctors office in the nearest city, Sacramento, the aggressively tan landscape seemed particularly morose to me because of the news that I had just received: My
