Liverpool dig in for victory after Simon Mignolet penalty save denies Leicester

Matches like this are what the Premier League does best, fast-paced blockbusters with breathtaking attacking and thigh-slapping clangers. Leicester and, especially, Liverpool are among the leading exponents of an intoxicating genre.Jürgen Klopp’s men scored three splendid goals here but still needed Simon Mignolet to save a late penalty from Jamie Vardy to secure a much-needed win. Mignolet, almost inevitably, had conceded the penalty himself, rushing off his line in an attempt to intercept the ball, which he touched before clattering into Vardy. The goalkeeper also bore some blame for earlier goals by Vardy and Shinji Okazaki, even if he was not helped on those occasions by questionable refereeing. Continue reading...

Football League: Alfred N’Diaye winner sees Wolves keep pace at summit

• Wolves, Leeds and Cardiff all win to create four-point table-top buffer• Shrewsbury are Football League’s last unbeaten side as Exeter finally lose• These are still early days, yet it is hard to ignore the four-point cushion the top three sides have built themselves. Leeds, Wolves and Cardiff all survived close calls, and ultimately all won, to find themselves level on 20 points with the rest looking up. Leeds benefited from a slice of fortune when Bartosz Bialkowski, Ipswich’s goalkeeper and player of the season last term, spilled a corner over his goal-line and a flash on referee Geoff Eltringham’s watch confirmed the error. That put Leeds 3-1 up at a time when Ipswich had their hosts under pressure and, despite Joe Garner’s reply, the home side held on for a 3-2 win. Continue reading...

Álvaro Morata strikes treble for Chelsea in crushing defeat of Stoke

Antonio Conte was his usual animated self on the touchline, pacing up and down and waving his arms around, yet this was one of those afternoons when the Chelsea manager could have put his feet up, sat back and enjoyed the show as the outstanding Álvaro Morata took centre stage with a superb hat-trick.Chelsea’s record signing took his tally to an impressive seven goals in seven games in the process and it felt fitting that he should deliver such an outstanding performance at the end of a week when the Premier League champions finally said goodbye to Diego Costa. Diego who? Continue reading...

Fed officials in muddle over permanent vs temporary inflation lull

Federal Reserve officials with competing views about inflation laid out on Friday the quandary facing U.S. policymakers as they wrestle over whether a recent dip in the pace of price increases is trivial, or the result of global forces that could permanently throw off the Fed's policy calculus. It is also central to an issue of broad political and economic importance: how low the unemployment rate can fall before rising wages and competition for goods starts pushing price increases to uncomfortable levels. "We are all trying to get a grip on it," Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan said of discussion within the Fed over why an unemployment rate in the low four percent range has not led to greater inflation pressure, as it would under standard theories about the "Phillips Curve" tradeoff between a tight jobs market and rising prices.

OPEC’s Premature Victory Lap

OPEC met on Friday to review the progress of their work over the past 9 months, assessing whether or not they should extend their current production cuts beyond the March 2018 expiration date. OPEC gathered in Vienna at a time when the oil market arguably looks tighter than it has in a very long time. Demand is growing at a rapid clip – increasing at a 1.6 million-barrel-per-day rate this year – global supply fell in August, and inventories have drained at a much swifter pace in recent months.

Oil Majors Brace For More Niger Delta Attacks

The slow pace of talks between the Nigerian government and representatives from the Niger Delta—exacerbated by the impending 2019 elections—have frustrated the militants who prompted the negotiations, causing oil majors to be concerned about an impending wave of attacks on the oil and gas infrastructure in the area, a new research note from Verisk Maplecroft says. “The fragile peace in the Niger Delta is on the cusp of breaking down again,” Malte Liewerscheidt, the consultancy’s senior Africa analyst, said. “Militant…

5 Ways to Focus Your Energy During a Work Crunch

Work invariably ebbs and flows, cycling between steady states, where we feel more in control of the pace and workload, and peak periods, where the work crunch hits us hard. Unexpected setbacks, project sprints, or even vacations and holidays can create mayhem and tension. Maintaining focus and managing energy levels become critical as tasks pile onto an already full load. When you’re in your next work crunch, there are a few things you can do to focus and manage your energy more productively: Accept the situation. When an acute period hits, it’s easy to resist the fact that it’s happening. We wish for things to be like they were last month, or we long for the pace we had during vacation. By not being present to the here and now, we drain our energy by ruminating on the situation. In fact, physicists define resistance as “the degree to which a substance or device opposes the passage of an electrical current, causing energy dissipation.” In the case of a work crunch, the more you oppose what’s happening, the more energy you lose. Acceptance does not mean giving in. On the contrary, it means acknowledging the reality of the situation with awareness so that you can take clear action. Observe and label your underlying emotions. Acceptance is particularly difficult given the underlying emotions that an acute work crunch can bring. Negative thoughts such as I’m not going to do a good job, I don’t know if I’ll be able to get it all done, or I feel like I’m dropping the ball at both home and work often predominate. David Rock, director of the NeuroLeadership Institute, suggests in his book Your Brain at Work that, rather than suppressing or denying an emotion, an effective cognitive technique is labeling, whereby “you take a situation and put a label on your emotions. “The most successful executives have developed an ability to be in a state of high limbic system arousal and still remain calm,” Rock says. “Partly, this is their ability to label emotion states.” You and Your Team Series Staying Focused Your Brain Can Only Take So Much Focus Srini Pillay The Two Things Killing Your Ability to Focus William Treseder Your Team’s Time Management Problem Might Be a Focus Problem Maura Thomas The next time you are in a tough work crunch, or you’re experiencing a setback at work, take Rock’s advice to step back, observe your thinking and emotional state, and assign a word to what’s happening, such as “pressure,” “guilt,” or “worry.” By using just one or two words, Rock’s research shows, you can reduce the arousal of the limbic brain’s fight-or-flight system and instead activate the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for our executive functioning skills. Preserve your sense of choice and agency. Accepting the situation and labeling our emotions can help to reduce the anxiety that comes with a work crunch. This is critical, because, as research out of the University of Pittsburgh shows, anxiety directly impacts our cognitive functioning, especially those areas responsible for making sound decisions. Don’t fall into a victim mentality, believing there are no choices or that you don’t have control. Instead, bring greater vigilance to assessing your priorities, making tough trade-offs, and incorporating self-care where you can. For example, ask yourself: What are the 1–2 things that are mission critical today? What is something I can do to recharge my battery (get to bed early one night this week, listen to my favorite music while working, or catch a nap on a plane)? Who or what will I have to say “no” to during this time? Communicate with your colleagues and loved ones. Other people can be a real energy drain — or gain — during work crunches and set-backs. Pause and consider how you can renegotiate deadlines, set tighter boundaries, or ask for more support during this time: Renegotiate deadlines. Loop back with colleagues to ensure that you understand when the other person really needs something and is going to review it. In other cases, if you anticipate not being able to meet a deadline, be sure to inform your colleagues of the new timing or renegotiate it. Keep your integrity by doing what you say you’re going to do, and being up front about when you need to shift gears. Set tighter boundaries. Our boundaries and guardrails need to be different during work crunches or acute periods. Let others, both professionally and personally, know when you’ll be available or not, so they are aware of your more limited schedule. Ask for help and support. Many of us pride ourselves on not bothering others and being self-reliant. These are great qualities, but there are times when we need to ask for help. Ask your loved ones for more help on the home front. Share the weight of the accountability for projects with your colleagues by delegating or teaming up, versus doing it all on your own. Practice self-compassion. Probably the toughest thing of all during a work crunch or setback is how easy it is to beat yourself up, especially when you aren’t hitting your high standards for work or time at home. Annie McKee, author of the forthcoming book How to Be Happy at Work and coauthor of several books on emotional intelligence, says this about self-compassion: “If you really want to deal with stress, you’ve got to stop trying to be a hero and start caring for and about yourself.” To be truly self-compassionate, especially during an acute period of work stress, accept the situation by acknowledging it with awareness and compassion, observe and label your emotions (don’t suppress or deny them), preserve your sense of choice and agency, communicate with your colleagues and loved ones, and ask for help when you need it. By taking these actions, you’ll move through your next crunch with greater ease and peace.
