Arce was one of 343 members of the Fire Department who perished at the World Trade Center. He also was a secret elf, as his family learned only after Sept. 11, when they found a paper clipped sheaf of letters in his bachelor apartment.

The five letters were from children to Santa. The dates showed there was one for every year Arce had been a firefighter.

The family discovered that in each instance Arce had fulfilled each child’s Christmas wish with a package that arrived as if from the North Pole. This quiet, self effacing firefighter sought neither recognition nor thanks.

“He would just send the package,” his brother, Peter Arce, said last week. They inquired among David Arce’s surviving comrades.

“Everybody was like,

‘What are you talking about?

‘ ” the brother recalled. “Everybody had no idea. 5 memorial held jointly for him and Michael Boyle, his best friend and fellow member of Engine Co. 33. A standing room only crowd filled St. Patrick’s Cathedral as Peter Arce spoke of the Santa letters in his eulogy. He read aloud the one from 1999:

“Dear Santa’s helpers,

I hope someone receives this letter and finds it in their hearts to find the time to read it. If this letter really falls into the hands of God’s helper, I ask for a computer or anything I can use for school.

Thank you so much for your time,

Peter Arce informed the mourners that Yvonne had indeed received a computer. Smiles broke among the tears, and you could not help but think of David Arce as the sidewalk Santas hit the streets three weeks later. You wondered how his family would get through this Christmas.

The Arce family, being the Arce family, knew just what to do. They began by getting two Santa letters from the main post office on W. 34th St. in Manhattan.

One letter had been written by a girl from East Harlem who seemed to be around 8. We will withhold her name to lessen the chance of ruining the surprise:

“Dear Santa,

I just want to ask you for a Barbie doll, if it is not so much to ask for. I want a Barbie doll because my mother got the rent to pay and some expensive bills.

discount timberland Fall boots for every style

timberland sale boots Fall boots for every style

Each year, as the leaves turn rusty and the air cold and misty, fall fashions fill boutiques like presents under a Christmas tree. This is my favourite time of the style year.

It’s the season where functionality and style are in balance. Cozy sweaters flatter, patterned tights warm and fitted jackets in leather and tweed ward off the elements.

The wild card in every fall fashion season is boots. The boot du jour is not always fashion forward and functional. Slipper like Uggs are rarely flattering. Thigh high kinky boots are uncomfortable and, let’s be honest, most of us couldn’t get them past our ankles.

This year the cosmos has aligned to put forth not one boot trend but several. It’s the Big Bang of boots. I discovered this when a reader asked where she could find stylish boots for fuller calves and set me out on some research. We set out to find a pair of wide calf friendly boots for our reader, and others appropriate for every type of boot lover:

Wide calves

Designers have wised up to the wide variety of leg shapes and sizes, carefully placing elasticized gussets and adjustable buckles on traditional styles. The Montreal shoe line Ferra Giacomo is a good example. Their winter line includes mid calf boots with full elastic backs and lace ups. Ankle boots are another option for those with shapely calves. The key is to wear ones that are snug around the ankles. Wide or slouchy ankle boots will accentuate wide calves.

Slim calves

Thin women have a tough time with boots that gape or fall down. The return of thigh high go go boots is a fun option if they fit somewhat snug to the body. Slim legs can look more shapely with snug, embellished boots. Buckles and different textures will flatter and personalize fit.

Short: The bad news is that short legs rarely look good in boots that rise higher than the knee. They look like hip waders on a petite woman. Believe me I’ve tried on every pair. The good news is most boot styles this year do flatter short women, with enough heel to elongate but not teeter like stilts. Tall women of all shapes can benefit from the leg flattery without the extra height of heels. Rustic low heeled boots, such as those by Timberland and Frye, also look best on taller women especially paired with slim fit pants or leggings.

Fashion and function

Probably the biggest advancement in fashionable boots is the styles made by trusted lines. My personal favourite is the Indigo line by Clarks. I’ve stood for eight hours outside in their three inch heel ankle boots. Slouchy boots are pushing through this style season. The multi purpose style is often comfortable and warm and works well with anything from jeans to tights. A pair of fashion forward boots can be the centerpiece of an outfit, so venturing on the wild side is beneficial while leggings and tight pants still dominate.

Unlike last season, rubber boots are moving from fashionable to rainy days only. Teens should stick to less than two inch heels (this is much better for body development) and look for comfort and expressing their newfound fashion sense with graphics and colourful designs.

Posture and comfort: Orthopedic style shoe lines have come out with fashion friendly lines this fall. Doc Marten is the veteran of this trend, with high buckled, snake skin, wild coloured and embroidered takes on their classic boot.

The Cobbler also carries two styles of shoes that use negative heel technology: Earth Shoes and MBT (Canadian designer Simon Chang is a big fan). The soles are thicker than the heels, propelling the wearer’s heel downward as if walking in sand. Some of the claimed benefits are better posture, reduced stress and increased calories burned. Both lines have stepped up their appeal and look more ready to wear than medical aid. Earth has a flattering soft leather ankle boot and MBT has a black leather and silver buckle mid calf boot that barely shows the thick sole. Special thanks: Social media can have real life benefits, I learned this week with a call for fashion models on Twitter. I’d like to thank Jill Heggie, Fawn Beckwith and Kirsten Loran for their time and flair. Prosecutors had 30 days following the Feb. 9 verdict to file an appeal in the case. government shatters Ottawa woman’s professional life, then quietly recants allegationsMarie Boivin was sitting at a Starbucks a year and a half ago when she got a call from her accountant. said to me, have to turn on CNN,’ she recalled. bad. attorney general Loretta Lynch was standing at a podium before dozens of TV cameras, making allegations [ / posts list >

timberland uk ltd Fake news spreads much faster on Twitter than true news

A trio of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have concluded that fake news travels at a markedly faster rate on Twitter than accurate information, in a wide ranging study published Thursday in Science magazine.

By Oliver Darcy NEW YORK (CNNMoney) A trio of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have concluded that fake news travels at a markedly faster rate on Twitter than accurate information, in a wide ranging study published Thursday in Science magazine. “Not the result that false news travels faster than true news, but in the magnitude of the difference.”

The study, which Aral said took about two years to complete, found that it took true news stories about six times longer to reach 1,500 people on Twitter than stories that were false. False stories, the study said, “diffused significantly farther, faster, deeper, and more broadly than the truth in all categories of information.”

“I find it disturbing,” said Aral, who said he has been studying the impact of social media on society for more than 10 years. “All of the potential consequences of our society being consumed by falsity. In terms of responses to terrorism, responses to national disasters, the impact on our national economy. I think the potential for negative consequences in those areas are very real.”

The researchers examined thousands of stories disseminated on Twitter and trillions of tweets between the years 2006 and 2017. They relied on six fact checking organizations to determine whether a story was true or false. While the researchers limited the study scope to Twitter, Aral said his “strong intuition” is that its findings extend to other forms of social media.

One particular category of false news that “traveled deeper and more broadly” than other types of stories,

researchers said, was those about politics. The study showed that false politics stories were “more viral than any other category of false information,” reaching 20,000 people three times faster than the other types of information reached 10,000 people.

A surprising twist in the study was that bots spread fake news at the same rate as true news, suggesting, “False news spreads more than the truth because humans, not robots, are more likely to spread it.”

“This was one of the two surprising findings,” Aral said, noting the other unexpected finding was the sheer speed in which false news stories spread faster than true news stories.

That said, the study did find that the types of individuals spreading fake news were not high profile Twitter users. The research said these people had less followers and were verified by Twitter “significantly less” than those sharing accurate information.

Aral told CNN that this all points to the fact that “behavioral interventions” might be part of the solution to combating fake news. He said labeling news sources, similar to how food is accompanied by a nutrition label that explains how it is made and what is in it, might “reduce the spread of fake news online.” He also said removing the economic incentive of publishing fake news by weeding them out using algorithms, as Facebook has started to do, could be helpful.

Whatever the solution, the researchers noted it imperative the problem be solved.

“Understanding how false news spreads is the first step toward containing it,

” the three researchers wrote in their report. “We hope our work inspires more large scale research into the causes and consequences of the spread of false news as well as its potential cures.”

timberland for men Fake news gets real analysis at journalism panel

A panel consisting of University of Montana Mansfield Library web service librarian Jaci Wilkinson, UM journalism professor Dennis Swibold and Missoulian editor Kathy Best backed up the retired director of UM’s Broadcast Media Center with their own explanations. The event was sponsored by Humanities Montana.

“I do not use the words ‘fake news,’ Wilkinson said. “I prefer the term ‘misinformation,’ or the newer term ‘disinformation’. That originally came from the Russian, ‘dezinformatsiya’ from the era of Stalin and the KGB. It was information intended to create distrust in people.”

To combat organized attempts to discredit real news, Swibold said people need to become literate news readers. That means examining the sources of news reports for credibility and transparency: are they right more often than wrong, and do they share sources and own up to errors?

“It’s up to reporters to keep pushing for the truth,” Swibold said. “There may be perspectives they haven’t considered. We try to always end an interview with a question: ‘Who else should be in this conversation?'”

“It’s not enough to just do a Google search,” added Best. “You need to know how to check a source. So much information comes at us like a tsunami. You have to be literate about how you use that powerful tool (smartphone) in your hand. And if there’s bad information out there,
mens euro sprint timberland boots Fake news gets real analysis at journalism panel
we should be willing to say that.”

Wilkinson said the influence of the Internet shows up in two ways. One is the proliferation of news providers that recycle the work of others without paying for it, diluting the value of the original investigative work. The second is the way social media companies’ search algorithms push results that amplify more extreme versions of opinions we already have.

“That’s an insidious role that technology companies play in our lives,” Wilkinson said. For example, an analysis of the internet search history of Dylan Roof (who murdered nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina in 2015) showed increasingly obsessive material purporting the racial inferiority of his victims.

Swibold recalled how growing up, news judgment was simpler just because news itself was more scarce. His household had one newspaper and three TV networks to choose from, not thousands of Internet sites reinforcing whatever point of view he might espouse. The idea of “balanced coverage” can mean a crackpot gets equal time with verifiable facts.

“That’s symmetry, not balance,” Swibold said. “You’re not telling people where the weight of the information really is. A term that’s starting to get used is ‘Here’s what we know, and what we don’t know.’ We can’t say like Walter Cronkite,

‘That’s the way it is.’ Walter Cronkite could not exist today.”

So what happens when a guy who looks and dresses like Joel Osteen goes to a Joel Osteen of hope? gets free parking, gets into the venue and poses with Joel fans, of course.

(Watch the video at the bottom of this story.)

Is he or isn he? Well, that wasn even a question on their mind when dozens at the Joel Osteen event welcomed, hugged, and even took a selfie with who they thought was Houston pastor Joel Osteen live in person.

Klimkowski has looked like Osteen, well, you know, all his life.

they look at me, and before they even say anything, I go, ‘Joel?’ And we both start laughing, and they go,

‘Yeah, that it. Joel,'” Klimkowski said.

But he started acting like him six years ago and decided to put it to the test.

sort of just believed that he was Joel. There was hardly any skepticism,” director John Parr said.

Until the team basically got kicked out.

how far we can get, and it almost led us to getting arrested,” Klimkowski said.

But we wanted to know if this impostor would pass in Houston, so with KHOU 11 News reporter Janelle Bludau’s camera and laptop, we stopped by Doshi Coffee House. And what we found out is when you play Klimkowski by himself, one can be fooled.

But side by side, Houstonians know the difference between Osteen and “Faux Steen.”

a lot younger, so it easier to tell,” one customer said.

Klimkowski says he just hopes the real pastor finds a little humor in the fake one.

hope he would laugh about it, and I hope he would want me to come down there and do an opening 5 minute set for him with me and my boys,” Klimkowski said.

KHOU reached out to Osteen’s team for to get the pastor’s reaction to the video. We haven’t heard back on that yet, but the team did want to clarify it wasn’t their security who escorted the comedian and his crew out.

timberland earthkeeper chelsea boot faith at core of Tony Bennett the man and coach

timberland pathlite faith at core of Tony Bennett the man and coach

A 1971 University of North Carolina graduate, Chadwick played basketball for iconic Tar Heels coach Dean Smith and gave the invocation at Smith’s memorial service last month.

“He reminds me a lot of Coach Smith,” Chadwick said of Bennett. “He deflects praise. He doesn’t want that to be a part of his life. He wants the kids to receive the glory. That’s genuinely who Tony is. He’s not coaching to be in the spotlight. He’s coaching as a sense of calling. There’s something interesting in the Christian faith, you really understand that everything you do is not work, it’s a calling.

As a rookie head coach in 2006 07, he was the consensus national Coach of the Year at Washington State. He led the Cougars to consecutive NCAA tournaments, a program first, and their first Sweet 16 in 67 years.

Bennett is the only coach to guide Virginia to four consecutive winning ACC seasons. The Cavaliers last season won the conference tournament for the first time since 1976 and reached the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1995. This after finishing 10th and 11th, among 12 teams, in the ACC standings the two years before he arrived.

Yet when ESPN’s College GameDay descended upon Charlottesville this season to hype Virginia’s game against Duke, providing both teams an hour long infomercial, Bennett insisted on the shadows, appearing only briefly, and reluctantly.

“Don’t be captivated when you hear their cheers,” he said during a rare, in season sit down, citing Biblical admonitions of vanity in Ecclesiastes. “And don’t be destroyed when you hear their jeers, because you’re going to get both in this profession.

“There’s such joy and celebration in seeing the team play well. That is more than enough for me.”

Bennett’s modesty is rooted in his youth.

Dick Bennett, Tony’s father, is revered in coaching circles. He led high school programs in small town Wisconsin before moving to NAIA Wisconsin Stevens Point, mid major Green Bay, the Big Ten’s Wisconsin and the Pacific 10’s Washington State.

Tony and his two sisters Kathi Bennett is the women’s coach at Northern Illinois grew up in the gym. Tony played for his dad at Green Bay and worked for him as an assistant coach at Wisconsin and Washington State. Together they helped Green Bay make the 1991 NCAA tournament, the school’s first, and Wisconsin reach the 2000 Final Four.

Dick Bennett built his college programs on five pillars: passion, humility, unity, servanthood and thankfulness. They ring of the Bible, a tone for which Tony deserves some credit.

While in junior high, he attended a Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp and left deeply moved and committed. His parents couldn’t help but notice, and be affected.

“He had as much of an influence on his mother and me as we had on him in that particular area,” Dick Bennett said.

But equating Tony’s faith and kindness to a soft touch would be a mistake. “Blessed are the meek,” does not apply to competition in his world.

Virginia practices, from all accounts, define intensity, Bennett’s face reddening at lapses. But he rarely curses “and is not demeaning at all,” junior Evan Nolte said.

Brad Soderberg noticed Bennett’s spirit from the start. He played for Dick Bennett at Stevens Point, and he and Tony worked together as assistants to Dick at Wisconsin.

“I remember Tony when he was just a snot nosed coach’s kid hanging out at practice,
timberland earthkeeper chelsea boot faith at core of Tony Bennett the man and coach
” said Soderberg, the head coach at Lindenwood University, a Division II program in Missouri. “And I mean this very sincerely, you could already tell the drive to be great. I knew no matter what he aspired to do, he would be exceptional, and how much that has to do with his parents, especially his dad.”

By basketball standards, Bennett was, and is, short and slight. Listed at 5 foot 11 in college he playfully claims he’s 6 foot he aimed for the NBA nonetheless.

Bennett graduated from Green Bay in 1992 as the Mid Continent Conference’s career scoring and assists leader and still holds the NCAA Division I record for career 3 point shooting accuracy at 49.2 percent. The Charlotte Hornets drafted him in the second round, but chronic knee ailments shortcircuited his NBA career.

“To be 5 11, to play mid major college basketball, to make it to the NBA?” Virginia assistant coach Jason Williford said. “There’s something that burns inside, and not many people get to see that. We see it in practice. We see it in his preparation. He hates losing at anything. Ping pong, tennis, you name it. Shooting drills, H O R S E.

“I think the fear of losing drives him, at least on the basketball floor. But then in life he’s got a calm about him, and he’s at peace, and I think that’s his faith. I’m a work in progress in that regard, but Tony’s really at peace with who he is. He knows there’s something bigger and higher than all this.

“He’s just a good guy. He’s an old soul.”

Bennett’s three years in Charlotte forged his faith. The Hornets’ strength and conditioning coach, Chip Sigmon, introduced him to Chadwick, and soon Bennett was a regular not only at Chadwick’s church, but also his home.

Bennett vacationed with the Chadwicks and their children he had never been to the beach or seen the ocean and bonded with David over the Bible and basketball.

“We grew to deeply and dearly love him,” Chadwick said. “He became, in a way, like our third child, like a big brother to our two children and a deep friend to me.”

Speaking to a Forest Hill youth group one afternoon, Bennett noticed Laurel Purcell, an LSU graduate interning at the church. They were an ideal match, and not because of her sweet jump shot.

Laurel, too, was steeped in faith, and the couple grew together. Indeed, when Bennett’s post NBA playing career took them to New Zealand, they helped establish a community church there.

timberland safety boots failures continue to hurt clients

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) to defend the law, a former attorney was found guilty of breaking it and in a big way. Even though justice has been served to him, his former clients are still suffering from his failures.

Troy Titus is sitting in federal prison after cheating people out of millions of dollars. Unlike his other victims, Titus didn steal from Wanda Tatum. Instead, he failed to protect her, and now that come back to haunt Tatum family.

here was the incision, and it was the size of a baseball, and it was a tumor, Tami told 10 On Your Side, pointing to obvious medical incisions in Wanda head.

Troy Titus

To prepare for this day, on February 3, 1997, Wanda gave her power of attorney to Tami. Wanda said when asked if she remembered Troy Titus, who signed the document along with her.

Not only was Titus her attorney, but he was also a Notary Public. The problem: he failed to properly notarize the document with a stamp. And that has created problems atChartway Federal Credit Union.

took the document to Chartway, and they said they can take the Power of Attorney document without the notary stamp on it and that means I can get the money and that means my mother won get the service care she needs, Tamisaid.

10 On Your Side went back to Chartway with Tami, and together we spoke with the Regional Manager. Chartway is working with Tami to get her the money, but the credit union saidit is following established guidelines to get this done.

But everyone is aware that time is running out.

lot of years we had together, and I can stand to see her in this condition, not when we can do so much to help her, if people will just let us, saidJo Hopkins, Wanda sister.

Tami did not know why the un notorized documents went unnoticed. They were put in an envelope by Troy Titus. The envelope reads will and power of attorney. wasn until the family needed the Power of Attorney document that it was opened and taken to the credit union. That when the problem was pointed out.

Chartway CEO Ron Burniske is aware of the situation. He sympathetic of the family plight, but would not go into details except to say he will make sure everything is made right quickly.

timberland military boots Faculty Q Psychologist Malia Mason Focuses on Attention

buy timberlands Faculty Q Psychologist Malia Mason Focuses on Attention

Pay attention to Malia Mason. She’s certainly paying attention to you. An associate professor at Columbia Business School, she examines how people regulate their attention or don’t and what implications that may have for students, managers and employees. She got into the field in graduate school by, appropriately enough, following her own wandering mind.

Few people focused on the field before 2007, when Science magazine published her dissertation, “In Search of a Mental Default Mode: The Psychology of Mind Wandering.” From there, her interest in the subject led her to research management and the human brain, and the challenges the mind encounters as it tries to make the most of its resources. to install a functional magnetic resonance imaging device, or fMRI, for research on everything from how the brain is organized to the concept of free will. Mason started her studies there only weeks later, and was able to use it for dozens of experiments.

She used the fMRI to tackle a question about the brain’s “default network,” which is active when a person is day dreaming, at rest or doing a simple task. She had study subjects memorize letter sequences five days in a row until they could recite them from memory. Then she added a new sequence. in Psychology, Rice University, 2000

“I was able to make the case that the default network is associated with self generated material, a key source of distraction,” she said. “Our mind spends a lot of time and energy distracting itself with information that it is generating.”

Mason joined Columbia in 2007, after two years as a postdoctoral fellow studying cognitive neuroscience at Harvard Medical School. She is among scores of faculty members across the University, as well as at the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute in Manhattanville, who study issues of the mind and the brain.

At the business school she teaches managerial negotiations and works closely with its doctoral students. She still studies mind wandering, as well as a second research interest centered on social perception, which focuses on “economizing strategies,” or the social assumptions people make when they negotiate with or manage others.

Q. How did you come to study mind wandering?

A. There really wasn’t much research about it. My sense of the literature that discussed attention was that it presupposed that distractions originate in the external environment, and that didn’t jibe with my personal experiences. When I catch myself “off task” it’s usually because I am distracted by something my own mind produced. Assuming my experience isn’t unique, this implies that we know very little about how the mind goes about regulating itself and resisting distractions.

A. The term “mind wandering” suggests these are random thoughts. But my research shows that our mental meandering may not be so arbitrary or especially idiosyncratic. For instance, it is often about things that are unresolved what we need from the grocery store, an unfinished dissertation, a disagreement we had with a friend that remains unsettled. Basically, our minds have a penchant for wandering to things that we care about, but that remain unfinished. And I think there are some upsides to having a mind that tends to do that it means these things will remain “top of mind.”

Q. We’re often told that today we live with the most distractions ever. Do we?

A. I think that when we have a free moment there’s an increasing tendency for people to look to the external world for some entertainment with email, social media and other interruptions. That said, I think that we’re pretty good at figuring out just how little we have to think about something and how much of our mental resources we can spend thinking about other things. I have no problem thinking about how to approach a statistical analysis while I am chopping parsnips, for instance. How are we able to judge what’s a sufficient investment of our attention with any accuracy at all? I find that fascinating.

Q. What’s the purpose of self created distractions?

A. So many of the tasks we do on a daily basis brushing our teeth, following a conversation in meetings don’t require our full attention. It appears that the mind tries to spend no more of its resources than absolutely necessary on a current task. Attention is a resource that you can’t bank, you spend it or you lose it. Having an intrusive thought about an intention when it cannot be realized seems to be counterproductive. But the chances that you act on it later increase dramatically when you’ve thought of it before you can act on it. Our mind wandering plays a self reminding role.

Q. You’ve studied what students’ minds do as they work on laptops. How do you measure that?

A. With their permission, we installed software called Rescue Time on their laptops, which tracks which window is active on a computer screen at any moment a Word document, then Facebook or YouTube. So I could tell what they were doing, for how long, when they switched among activities or wandered away from their computers. After a month we asked the students how much time they thought they spent on each application, and then we asked again after a second month and tested them to assess their ability to measure their own attention and focus.

A. The primary goal of the project was to try to understand why people misallocate their time and attention. We found that students on average spent 17 percent of a 24 hour period on their laptops. That’s about four hours, and that doesn’t even count what they do with their phones. When we went back to find out which activities they said were productive, almost two hours of that wasn’t crucial to work or to school about 9 percent. Even they realize they spend too much time on Facebook. On a scale of 1 to 7 for rating pleasure, the students gave Facebook a 6.1.

Q. Your other research focuses on social perception. Can you explain what that is?

A. We work in a world that requires us to work with other people every day, whether it’s buying a cup of coffee or formulating a corporate strategy. So this line of research involves identifying and understanding economizing strategies shortcuts, really that the mind uses to make sense of other people. What assumptions are people making about the causes of behavior they observe in others? How do they influence our own? These have big implications for negotiations or leadership because the assumptions that people draw about others matter. I’m working on a project now about how leaders who deliberate before making decisions tend to lose influence, because people assumed their deliberation was caused by incompetence rather than thoughtfulness or the complexity of the decision.

Q. How does knowing this help in negotiations and management?

A. The causes for events in a social world must be inferred. To understand others’ behavior we have to reverseengineer underlying motivations, beliefs and feelings. You can think of these inferences as informed guesses. Several of my papers illustrate how the mind organizes its experiences with its own narratives about what people are assumed to know or not to know, and why this matters. Negotiators converse, that’s how they negotiate. My research with my colleague, Daniel Ames, shows that the mind tends to go beyond what is said by making assumptions that shape the final agreements. Using precise numbers in a negotiation $5,115 versus $5,000, for example suggests to the other side that the negotiator has more knowledge or is more informed about what’s at issue. That’s an example of the mind’s tendency to go beyond what is said.

Q. Do you have a favorite project at the moment?

A. One of my current studies is about the functional significance of fidgeting. It’s another way of understanding how attention works. Fidgeting and restlessness are considered symptoms of attention problems. With this project we are asking, is fidgeting really just a symptom or does it have some functional significance? Fidgeting’s effect on performance was specific to people who like to do it. Is it possible that people are fidgeting because it helps them to selectively attend to what needs to be done and ignore competing demands for their attention?

Cristiano never grew up with that. ‘It’s hard for him, I think, because he wants the ball all the time. Sometimes, as a winger, you don’t touch the ball for five minutes and you have to rely on others to give it to you and that’s hard for him.”

“When Ronaldo gave that little wink everyone interpreted it that he had got his team mate sent off. You felt then that he would become a much criticised figure. But that’s not really happened. So for him to overcome all of that and emerge as one of the players of the season is quite a remarkable achievement. He is a phenomenal talent. He has tremendous pace, he goes past players and he has added the ability to shoot. He can also pick out team mates. There is not a lot he cannot do now. I believe his game has improved immeasurably over the past couple of seasons.”
