In our culture, there’s this idea that enduring a tragedy can be good for your personal growth. You’ll have a newfound appreciation for life. You’ll be grateful for your friends and family. You’ll learn from the experience. You’ll become more resilient. But what does the science say? This theme appears in media coverage, time and again, in the wake of natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Is there actually value in pain and suffering? Was philosopher Frederich Nietzsche onto something when he said, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger”? Read the whole story: The Conversation More of our Members in the Media >

RIO DE JANEIRO – Athens Olympic champion Ayumi Tanimoto had to settle for the women’s 63-kg bronze medal while it was another woeful day for Japan’s men as they failed to medal for the second day in a row at the Judo World Championships Friday. Tanimoto scored three “ippon” wins in a row en route to the semifinals but her quest for gold ended after she lost a closely contested battle with Cuba’s Driul Gonzalez, who went on to beat Frenchwoman Lucie Decosse in the final to strike gold.

The youth national teams of Russia and Bulgaria play with a result 1:0 in a match of the qualifications for the European Championship next year. The Russians hit us in the first minute with a goal by Maxim Glushenkov.The Little Lions need at least a tie to stand a chance for second place, giving the right to a barrage. The match started a nightmare for the “lions”, who took on the role of catching up in the first minute of the match. It took only 28 seconds for Maxim Glushenkov to master the good pass of Konstantin Kuchaev, to overcome Angel Lyaskov and with an accurate shot on the ground to send the ball into the net of Daniel Naumov.Shortly afterwards came the first blow of ours. Tonislav Yordanov stood behind the ball in a free kick, but his attempt was inaccurate and flew away from the door of Matvey Safonov.In the 12th minute Ivan Ignatiev fired a powerful projectile at Naumov’s door, but the ball hit Petko Hristov’s body.In the 19th minute, the Russians could have doubled their lead after Glushenkov intercepted a cross and tried a shot, but fortunately, Daniel Naumov reflected the experience of the Russian.After a quarter of an hour, the Bulgarians organized a good attack, which ended with a strong shot by Valentin Antov to the door of Safonov, who, however, hit the right guard of Sbornaya.Russia U21 – Bulgaria U21 1: 0 1: 0 Maxim Glushenkov 1 ‘Compositions:RUSSIA U21: Matvey Safonov, Nikolay Raskazov, Igor Diveev, Roman Evgeniev, Danil Krugovoy, Konstantin Kuchaev, Ivan Ignatiev, Ivan Oblyakov (k), Maxim Glushenkov, Daniil Lisaviy, Nail UmyarovBreeder: Mikhail GalaktionovBULGARIA U21: Daniel Naumov (k), Andrea Hristov, Ertan Tombak, Angel Lyaskov, Valentin Antov, Ivaylo Naidenov, Iliya Yurukov, Tonislav Yordanov, Stanislav Ivanov, Petko Hristov, Kaloyan KrastevBreeder: Alexander DimitrovReferee: Arda Kardashler, TurkeyStadium: Arena Khimki, RussiaIn the other matches of our group, Latvia made the surprise and stole a point from Serbia, while Estonia and Poland play with a score of 0: 1.

George Kostyrko. After Schwarzenegger signed a $7.3 billion prison reform plan into law May 3, city officials were worried that Nelles could be targeted to reopen as a prison site. The reform plan aims at adding more beds in the prison system and improving rehabilitation programs. For a while, the administration considered using Nelles as a re-entry facility, where parole violators would receive intensive rehabilitation services. In return for Calderon’s support on his prison reform bill, however, Schwarzenegger agreed not to utilize Nelles for any corrections-related purposes without the community’s consent, Calderon said Tuesday. The corrections department closed Nelles in 2004. Days before the facility was supposed to be sold to a private party in July 2006, state officials stopped the purchase, saying the state might need the property to ease prison overcrowding. The value of the property is estimated at at least $107 million. It could potentially generate millions more in home sales or from commercial development, officials said. “Right now this \ is a run-down, dilapidated facility that is a blight on our community,” said Whittier Councilman Joe Vinatieri. “We strongly suggest \ sell the property.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ron Calderon that the former Fred C. Nelles Youth Correctional Facility will never reopen as a prison facility without the consent of the community, Calderon said Tuesday. In response, Whittier City Council members Tuesday night adopted a resolution officially declaring their opposition to any use of the 73.5-acre site by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. At a news conference outside the former youth prison, Calderon told city officials that a correctional facility “won’t be shoved down Whittier’s throat.” “We want to send a message to the governor that we won’t ever agree to use this center as a lockup for criminals,” said Calderon, D-Montebello. “Criminals should not even come here – not even Paris Hilton.” Whittier Mayor Owen Newcomer said although the property is not yet up for sale, the agreement by Schwarzenegger means it cannot be used as any type of state facility without the city’s approval. “We’ve had it as a prison for 114 years and it served the community’s needs for many of them, but no longer,” Newcomer said. “It’s an old facility that’s no longer economically viable. We can use it for commercial uses or housing and use the money on other \ sites.” The property is currently under the control of the Department of General Services, which is charged with maintaining and selling off state-owned surplus property, among other things, said corrections department spokesman
Charlton captain Johnnie Jackson has vowed to reimburse fans who travelled to watch the team’s humiliating defeat at Huddersfield on Tuesday night.The Addicks, second from bottom in the Championship, were thrashed 5-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium as their woeful season took another turn for the worse.Jackson posted a message on Twitter after the game: “I know words are cheap but on behalf of myself and the players, I want to apologise for tonight. It was disgraceful and you deserve better.“We are going to reimburse fans who travelled up to support us. I will arrange this with the club + they will let you know how to be refunded.”Charlton’s defeat to the Terriers followed an FA Cup exit at the hands of League One strugglers Colchester on Saturday and has left interim boss Karel Fraeye’s future in doubt.Fraeye was plucked from the Belgian third division to take on the job in October and has overseen just two wins in 13 Championship matches.Charlton fans are dismayed by the failure to appoint a permanent replacement for the axed Guy Luzon and have held protests at The Valley in recent weeks to voice their displeasure with club owner Roland Duchatelet and chief executive Katrien Meire’s running of the club.Fraeye refused to talk to the media following the defeat at Huddersfield and there were suggestions he had been sacked.But Charlton have yet to make any comment on the 38-year-old’s future and he remains in interim charge for now. 1 Johnnie Jackson
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2He would surprise me with tickets to the Broadway shows I wanted to see. He bought me not one, but two, purses that I had admired in a store window, and he could be verbally seductive. He shaped my views on men and the kind I have allowed to enter my life. I often fooled myself into thinking that I would choose wiser than my mother had. My late husband, so different, I thought, gambled at Friday night poker games, and bet on ballgames. He announced austerity programs, as he called them, then continue to lose money even as he did. My father would take me to sit and read in the park on a weekday afternoon. He walked in a rainstorm, saying, “You are not going to get any less wet if you run.”When as a teenager, I asked how I would know when I fell in love, he said, “You won’t have to ask; you will just know it.” He drove me to Madison, Wis., for my freshman year, and surprised me with the red, white and blue sweater I had admired in a store the previous evening. My friends all liked him. He was fun and adventurous, and they saw the kid in him. His marriage to my mom was not very good, and I knew it. This was no “Father Knows Best.” Handsome, in a John Barrymore sort of way, I suspect there were other women in his life. He had this disarming dimple in his left cheek, and when I was very little, I liked to place my finger on his face and then ask him to smile, hoping that I had found the exact spot where the dimple was. His sister, my Aunt Pearl, now in her late 90s, and I talk of him often. She saw him with all the love that I did, and I we both forgave him for his human frailties. MY dad gave me my romantic soul and my view of the world. He was a combination of The Music Man, Elmer Gantry and, in his later years, Willy Loman.When friends’ fathers went to work, my dad often stayed home because he never had a steady job to go to. He floated between get-rich-quick schemes, and my mother’s family called him shiftless. Although I did not know what it meant, I sensed it wasn’t good. I saw him as a Renaissance man, and believed him when he told me he would invent a game to rival Monopoly.I hung on his every word, always wanting to believe him. I allowed him to talk me into handing over the small inheritance my mom left me when she died of cancer at 47. He massaged me with words, telling me that he would “make a killing” at a small gas station he planned to buy. He took 16-millimeter movies of me as a child, movies that I still watch. No one else’s father had a movie camera in the ’30s and ’40s. He did not always put food on our table, which would have long since been gone, while these precious grainy images remain. My dad was a drummer and a saxophone player. He loved the ponies and went often to the local racetrack. In the years after my mom’s death, I extracted a promise that he would stay away from the track. A few days later, I answered a call from Yonkers Raceway, saying they had found my dad’s binoculars. My plea had been useless. My father died on June 15, 1960, at the age of 50 from leukemia. He was 22 years younger then I am today. He left fingerprints on my heart and I named my older son, Lee, for him. My dad’s name was Louis Irving Bass. He was the firstborn of Benjamin and Annie Bass who lived on Hester Street on New York’s lower east side. He had music in him, and he left me with his song.Barbara Joan Grubman writes from Woodland Hills.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

David has battled drug and alcohol problems over the years, but there’s no word what happened on Saturday.He reportedly told the crowd that a show last night in Santa Barbara would be his last ever, due to health problems.On February 7th, David posted a message on his website, saying he’d be playing all over North America through 2017. And he does have a few more dates lined up . . . two next month and one in June.
