After twenty years of trial, error, and research into

The first two rounds of the NCAA men's basketball tournament came and went last week with the usual flurry of buzzer-beating upsets, tearful losses and busted brackets.


One item that basically flew under the radar was guarantee made by Eastern Washington coach Jim Hayford, who, before his team's first-round game vs. Georgetown, told CBS Sports' Jim Rome, "We're going to win …"


Apparently, Georgetown didn't get the memo, beating Eastern Washington 84-74. After the game#1# Georgetown coach John Thompson III made a point of referring to several sports guarantees from the late 20th century, when such things were socially significant.


During the 1960s, Muhammad Ali often guaranteed not only victories, but also specific rounds in which they would occur. Ali's verbal braggadocio polarizing Americans whose country was also roiling with racial and political conflict.


In 1969, quarterback Joe Namath guaranteed a gaggle of poolside reporters that his New York Jets would defeat the heavily favored Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. The Jets' subsequent win paved the way for the AFL-NFL merger, and 45 years later, the league sits unchallenged atop the American sports landscape.


Even NBA legend Larry Bird's locker-room guarantee that he was going to win the 1988 three-point shooting contest was important in its own way. Bird's bravado played a huge role in his rivalry with Magic Johnson#2# a rivalry that helped jolt the league out of a decade-long malaise and into prime time.


In today's media-saturated society, athletes' words carry less weight than Ali's, Namath's or Bird's. Virtually anyone can have a Twitter account, where offensive or controversial tweets generally enjoy 15 seconds of fame before being shoved out of the public's increasingly short attention span by another "shocking" comment.


None of this is meant to blame Hayford. He's not the first coach to guarantee victory in an attempt to instill confidence in his team, and he won't be the last. Tomorrow, next week, next month#3# or next year, another coach or athlete will come out and make the same kind of boastful statement.


?DUBAI, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- Nozomi Okuhara from Japan, world No. 4, beat world No. 1 Carolina Marin from Spain in the women's singles semi-final of the badminton's Dubai World Super Series 2015.?


?Okuhara defeated Marin 21-11, 21-12 in 53 minutes. She will play against China's Wang Yihan in the final in Dubai's Hamdan Sports Complex.


?Okuhara, 20#4# said she felt especially happy after this victory as she found her game following a long break due to a knee-injury.


?Twenty-two year old Marin cheered almost every point she did, while Okuhara remained self-controlled and refrained from showing too many emotions.?


?Marin expressed several protest to the referee due to distracting flashlights used by some spectators tribune when taking pictures with their smartphones.?


?Right-hand player Okuhara, only 1.55m tall, told Xinhua that her victory proves that height is not an important factor in a match.


?In the second semifinal late Saturday afternoon, Shanghai-born Wang won clearly against 20-year old Ratchanok Intanon from Thailand.


?Intanon, who became in 2013 the youngest world champion, played from the beginning a defensive match and tried to confuse Wang with sharp counter-attacks.


?Wang#5# who is at 1.78 meter, said she will give her best in the final.


?The women's singles final will take place on Sunday.?


After twenty years of trial, error, and research into the fields of alternative nutrition and holistic wellness, I have designed a life-long diet plan that anyone can afford and easily follow. It’s called the 鈥淪erenity Diet鈥?and it鈥檚 my personal version of the Paleo Diet. The diet plan excludes processedunnatural and genetically modified foods. Its sugar-free, gluten-free, low-starch formula is designed to help you successfully overcome mood swings#6# and irritability, while working with your Intelligent Body to repair its digestive health, hormonal balance, and emotional serenity. It will also increase your energy and significantly improve your metabolism.


In 1994, medicine found a major hormone that they previously didn’t know existed. But, it wasn’t just any major hormone, it was the king of all hormones that supervises virtually every action of the brain’s hypothalamus gland. The name of hormone is “leptin” and it was found in our fat cells. That’s correct#7# our fat cells. Its functions affect our moods, food cravings, and metabolism. For leptin, survival of the body is principal, and everything elseis secondary.


Big Pharma has yet to manufacture a drug that can positively enhance leptin function. That’s because diet is the only thing that can do this. As a result, very little about this major hormone is taught in medical schools or discussed in the media, despite its focal role in your hormonal physiology. Its activities throughout the body are both intricate and comprehensive. It regulates your endocrine system#8# nervous system, metabolism, and even has a function in prolonging your life.


The hormone leptin decides when to make us hungry, and therefore controls our metabolism. It works hand-in-hand with insulin, which becomes abnormalized when leptin levels are too high or too low. This causes insulin resistance which is directly linked with type 2 diabetes. If you are a carbivore, and adhere to a carb-based diet, you’ll typically start to get hungry between two to three hours after you eat. From an evolutionary viewpoint#9# that’s crazy. Nature is simply not that inefficient.


Commonly going days at a time without a meal, our paleo, hunter-gatherer ancestors would have starved to death if they had to rely on sugar (glucose) for fuel. But since they relied on fat-based ketones, the leptin hormone in their bodies was allowed to .
