Klopp’s men did more than enough to win and go through to the quarter-finals of the competition they triumphed in last season – only a horror show from their keeper Adrian, and a miraculous night from his opposite number Jan Oblak denying the English club. And afterward, the German coach couldn’t resist a brutal assessment of the Spanish side, even as he praised his team. “The way they play, I don’t get it. I don’t understand how they get some of the best players in the world playing like that,” he said. “Congratulations to Atletico, but I’m a really under-average loser. And if I said everything that was on my mind I would come across as the worst loser in the world. “I’m super proud of the boys because for 95 minutes we played a sensational game. We were the clear better side, dominated a team which is packed with world-class players who are difficult to break down – but we did it constantly. “I feel proud. I told them already they should be proud. “The last two and a half years in the Champions League has been an incredible ride and journey. In some moments we needed luck or a really good hand and we didn’t have that tonight. “I loved the way we played in the 90 minutes. We caused them so many problems and I love that – our big mistake was to score the second goal five minutes too late. We should have scored that in the 90 minutes and it would have been fine!” Klopp refused to put the boot into his keeper Adrian, despite a shocking performance that threw away a winning lead given to the Reds by Roberto Firmino in extra time. “He’s a man – the first goal it was pretty obvious it was a mistake and he knows that, he didn’t want to do that,” he said. “But come on, Adrian has saved us in so many moments, and the boys know that. “This was not the moment when we lost the game, but it had big impact. He makes the wrong decision, it is clear. The public will judge you, but he is a grown man and he will deal with that. “That’s how football is and nothing to blame.” Even Atletico manager Diego Simeone admitted that his side had more than just fortune on their side, as they somehow carved out an Anfield victory even as it seemed they were out on their feet. He conceded that Adrian’s howler was the turning point in the game, but also insisted that the away goals rule was unfair on Liverpool.

Positive phases usher in aging process

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champFreud was not the only one with a limited view. Jean Piaget, who contributed greatly to our understanding of cognitive development, believed that development stopped in young adulthood, followed by a slow downhill decline. Erik Erikson, who delineated the eight stages of psychosocial development, refers to development after adulthood as a single stage that can last 50 years. Giving credit where it is due, he was one of the first influential thinkers to propose that we can develop throughout our lives. He also noted that his work was not complete and invited students to complete it. Cohen was one of his students and took the assignment seriously. Cohen has used his study of more that 3,000 older adults to identify four distinct developmental phases of life. In his book “The Mature Mind: The Positive Power of the Aging Brain” (Basic Books 2005), he asserts that people enter these phases with “inner drives, desires and urges that wax and wane throughout life.” He calls these drives the “inner push,” the fuel that motivates development. They occur as the brain undergoes physiological changes, many of them positive. Dr. Gene Cohen, conference keynote speaker and director of the Center on Aging, Health & Humanities at George Washington University, presented a refreshing perspective on aging. “The problem is not about denying the very real problems associated with aging,” he said. “It’s about denying the very real potential associated with aging.” He noted that our negative views of aging are rooted in history. For example, Sigmund Freud’s view of older adults was narrow. He is quoted as saying, “About the age of 50, the elasticity of the mental processes on which treatment depends is as a rule, lacking. Old people are no longer educable.” Here are the phases: Midlife Re-evaluation Phase: This phase typically applies to those between 40 and 65. It is a time for exploration and transition. Cohen’s research indicates that people in this phase undergo a profound re-evaluation of themselves. They ask questions such as “Where am I now? “Where am I going?” “Where have I been?” Rather than a mid-life crisis, it is a time of quest. Liberation Phase: This phase applies to those in their late 50s, 60s and into their 70s. They want to experiment and free themselves of obligations and inhibitions. As this shift occurs, the brain is undergoing physiological changes including sprouting new connections between brain cells and using both hemispheres of the brain. People in this group are willing to take risks and ask, “So what can they do to me?” Summing up Phase: This phase applies to those in their 60s, 70s and 80s. They want to review their lives and give back to family, friends and society. Increased volunteerism, philanthropy and writing one’s autobiography are manifestations of this phase. Encore Phase: Cohen notes that this phase is not a swan song but a “desire to go on in the face of adversity or loss.” He concludes that the need to remain vital can lead to new ways to become creative and connected. These phases suggest that we can gain new energy, direction and purpose as we age. And then there is the “senior moment.” Rather than viewing this as a “dumb me” moment,” Cohen defines it as “pragmatic creativity.” Here is the story he told at the conference to demonstrate the point: Cohen’s in-laws were at the National Museum in Washington, D.C., when it started to snow. When they left to return home, there were inches on the ground with no cabs in sight. They managed to walk safely to a nearby subway and exited in front of a Domino’s pizza place. They entered and ordered a pizza for delivery at their home address and added, “One more thing. When you deliver the pizza, could you take us with you?” That is a senior moment! We all have the inner push. It’s normal. Aging can be a time of possibilities – a good thought as we approach the new year.

The feature worked like magic, and it reminded me why I switched to a Mac several years ago — the tight integration of hardware and software.There aren’t many other “aha” moments like this in Mojave, now available as a public beta. But this upgrade is definitely more in your face than last year’s macOS High Sierra was, where the focus was on under-the-hood improvements like a new file system and Metal 2 graphics. There are some welcome improvements everywhere in Mojave, from a more robust Finder and a smarter screenshot tool to a better organized desktop and stronger privacy in Safari.I’ve been using the developer beta version of macOS Mojave for more than a week, and the upgrades should make your life easier. But we’re only getting a little tease of the biggest change brought about by Mojave — iOS apps on your Mac.macOS Mojave public beta — Tips before you jump inmacOS Mojave is available as a public beta today, but there are some things you should know before you try it out. For starters, Apple recommends that you install the OS on a secondary Mac, and that you back up that Mac beforehand. And because this is beta software, some apps and services “may not work as expected.”I would definitely heed these words, as I experienced several app crashes during my testing. And in some cases, I had to reboot to get certain apps to work properly.MORE: How to Download the macOS Mojave Public BetaIf you do encounter any issues or bugs, use the built-in Feedback Assistant app to report them. Lastly, there will be periodic updates to the beta, and you’ll be able to upgrade to the final version of macOS Mojave this fall.Dark Mode: Content comes forwardMaybe it’s because I’m not a programmer, but I don’t get why so many people applauded when Apple unveiled the new Dark Mode in macOS Mojave during its Worldwide Developers Conference preview. It’s a darker color scheme, people.Nevertheless, I did appreciate this option as I went about my workday.To activate Dark Mode, you simply make one click under System Preferences – General. You’ll see the Appearance option right toward the top, and you can easily toggle between Light and Dark.MORE: How to Use macOS Mojave’s Dark ModeI really liked having Dark Mode on when using the Notes app. Having white text on a black background made things easier on my eyes, and any hyperlinks popped more. However, sometimes I had trouble finding the cursor on the black background.Dark Mode made even more of an impact in apps like Photos and Messages, because pictures and emoji simply pop more on a darker background than they do on a white one. I found it a bit easier to quickly scan photos and point out which one I’d like to use in an article.While more gimmicky than useful, there’s also a new Dynamic Desktop feature in macOS Mojave, with a desert photo that changes from day to night.Continuity Camera: Like a super-charged AirDropOne of my favorite features in macOS is the ability to quickly send photos from your iPhone to your Mac via AirDrop. Continuity Camera takes that convenience to the next level.All you need to do is click Edit in one of the supported apps, such as Pages, then select Insert From iPhone. The camera on your iOS 12-powered iPhone will then automatically turn on. Tap Use Photo on your iPhone, and the image will automatically show up in the document where you had placed the cursor.I can see this feature being quite useful for anyone working on reports or presentations. There’s also a “Scan documents” option, which allows you to scan documents using your iPhone’s camera.Finder and Quick Look: Saving you timeI spend a ton of time in Finder on macOS, and Mojave makes it easier to get stuff done without using a separate app.For instance, a new Gallery View not only shows you larger previews, but you can rotate images and trim audio or video files from within the finder.Quick Look also gets an upgrade in Mojave. You still preview files by pressing the space bar, but now you’ve got more available options. I could crop an image or annotate it without having to touch the Preview app. I had trouble previewing a video file, however; the Finder just hung and I had to restart it. (This is beta software after all.) After that, I could trim a clip of my golden retriever with no problem.MORE: Which MacBook Should You Buy? MacBook vs. Air vs. ProDesktop: Stacks cleans up your messIf your desktop is littered with all sorts of files, the new Stacks feature in macOS Mojave will feel like a magic wand. After you turn on the feature (under Finder-View), the software will automatically group and organize files by type.In my case, a couple dozen options found homes in stacks named Images, Movies and so on. Once the Stacks are created, you can easily scrub through them to see what’s inside just by hovering over and then using two fingers on your Mac’s trackpad to go back and forth. You can also change how groups are stacked from the type of file to the date or go by Tags if you’re really organized.Screenshots: A lot more control, plus videoShift-Command-5 is about to become one of your favorite Mac shortcuts. In Mojave, Apple is amping up screenshots with a new menu and new capabilities. After you activate the above shortcut, you’ll see five options appear in a box, including Capture Entire Screen, Capture a Window, Capture a Selection and two new video-recording options. You can record video of the entire screen or record a selection.I had fun recording a Stephen Colbert clip on YouTube of Josh Brolin reading tweets as Thanos, which I could then share out via Messages or other apps. (Too bad it’s just video that gets captured and not audio.) Regardless of what you capture, it shows up in the bottom-right-hand corner as a thumbnail, which you can click on to then markup, save, drag-and-drop into a document or save.New and improved apps: News, Stocks and MoreNo, macOS and iOS are not merging, but Apple is working on making it easier for developers to bring their wares from the iPhone and iPad over to the Mac. And the new four apps in Mojave are designed to be a proof-of-concept.News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home were all created with the new tools Apple will roll out to developers, and they look and feel like rich iOS apps, but with macOS control. Take the News app, which comes with a handy sidebar to make it easy to jump from topic to topic (News, Entertainment, Technology) and to search for keywords.It’s especially nice to see Voice Memos make its way to the desktop, as you can now record everything from interviews to lectures with your Mac and edit them on the big screen. I also like that I don’t have to listen back to my recordings in another app, such as QuickTime or iTunes.Meanwhile, FaceTime is getting an upgrade with group chat, as you can now gab with up to 32 people at once. The app is smart enough to enlarge the window of the current speaker.MORE: Best Hard Drive SpeedWhen you’re ready to discover third-party apps, you’ll see that the Mac App Store has received a major facelift. At first glance, it looks similar to the App Store in iOS, with Stories up front that help you learn more about new and popular apps. But along the left side is a sidebar that’s organized by what you want to do, such as Create, Work and Play. (You can still drill down by specific categories if you want.)Security and PrivacyThere’s really not much to show with Mojave’s new security features, but that’s the point. It’s more about what you’re not going to see. For example, Safari has improved its Intelligent Tracking Prevention in the Safari browser so that your web browsing isn’t tracked on those sites that offer Share, Like and Comment buttons. When you click on one of these buttons, you’re supposed to be asked if you want to allow the network to have access to your browsing activity. However, I didn’t see anything pop up for me while browsing.Safari also has new defenses against so-called fingerprinting, which can target you for ads based on your device’s configuration. The goal is to see fewer ads based on what sites you’ve already visited.OutlookThere’s nothing groundbreaking in macOS Mojave, but there are several upgrades that add up to a better overall user experience. I especially like the Continuity Camera feature, Finder improvements and new Screenshot tools. They all save me time. Dark Mode, on the other hand, is just nice to have — at least for me.As I said at the outset, what makes macOS compelling is the integration of hardware and software, and right now the hardware part of the Mac equation is lacking. Apple is hearing complaints about keyboards (which it is addressing), too many dongles and a lack of touch-screen support. I don’t think the next wave of MacBooks is going to necessarily answer the criticisms — especially that last one — but macOS Mojave does seem like a solid foundation on which to build the next wave of Apple laptops, especially once more iOS apps make it over to the platform.Longest Battery Life LaptopsLaptops with the Best Overall PerformanceBest Apple Laptops Author Biolast_img read more
