Roger Wolfson, Foolish Notions and Life’s Foibles

The great writer Roger Wolfson gave a speech last year abut how writing is very much in the details and playing on the foibles and nuances of people’s lives. In showcasing the absurdity of some beliefs which we have, Roger have an example from the world of soccer, about the seemingly ‘dangerous’ 2-0 scoreline, pointing of course to the fact that being 2 goals up is a good thing which we try to paint as bad, something which he tries to incorporate into his comedy writing.

Is Roger right in his thoughts about this analogy? Well There have been some who have disputed whether or not this is just a cliche which is put forward by football pundits, or whether in fact the 2-0 scoreline is as dangerous as many think it is. Let’s take a look then at exactly why this is viewed as a dangerous scoreline.

Nearly There

The first thing to mention is that this is not considered a dangerous scoreline after 80 minutes, at that stage it is expected that the winning team will go on to be victorious. Earlier in the game however it can be a tricky scoreline and much of that is down to opposition managers. A manager of a team losing 2-0 will look to motivate and inspire their players by telling them that all they need is a goal to get themselves back in the game. A single goal reduces the deficit down to 1 goal, which gives them belief.

Power of a Goal

Goals do not mean the same thing when they are scored, for example a goal scored to put a team 4 goals up instead of 3, is worth less, mentally speaking, than the goal to move from 2-0 to 2-1. At 2 goals up a team can feel pretty comfortable, and quite far ahead, especially as they are yet to concede a goal. If however they then concede a single goal, it shortens that gap and puts players into panic mode, knowing that if they lose another goal that their 3 points are very quickly going to turn into 1.

Drawing

If a team does come back from two nil down, they are going to be in a much more positive and a much more optimistic frame of mind than the team who had it all, then let it slip. We have to remember that the key behind why this scoreline is dangerous is mentality, and that is why if the losing team brings things back and sets the scoreline at 2-2, there is a very strong chance that they will then go on to win the whole game.

Relaxation

Another dangerous aspect of this scoreline is that players may very well relax somewhat and take their foot off the gas when they are two nil up, which of course is something which could play into the hands of the opposition. An early two goal lead has shown many times that the players slow down a touch and that is what lets the opposition back into the game.

It may look a good scoreline, but in football it is considered one of the most dangerous, perfectly representing the point which Roger was making about the fears that people have about risk, and how they play on details to mitigate it, when in reality everything is alright.

Roger Wolfson – The Outlook of Heavyweight Boxing

It finally looks like we are close to a definitive answer on who is the best heavyweight boxer in the world right now and probably of this generation.  After a lot of back and forth, rematches, come backs, shock defeats and trash talk, we finally look set for unification fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.  I was watching the brilliant writer and boxing fan Roger Wolfson discuss this recently and he made some really good points on the fight, which switched up how I thought about it. Taking all of that into consideration below I have included some information on both fighters and possible outcomes for the biggest fight in British history. 

Anthony Joshua 

Now 30 years old and starting to move away from his baby face, nice guy perception, Anthony Joshua has had a challenging year or two. The then nation’s sweetheart was on the wrong side of major upset when Andy Ruiz Jr stopped the champ at Madison Square Garden in Joshua’s US debut. The defeat strengthened a lot of arguments that Joshua isn’t the full package that Eddie Hearn led everyone to believe and it was evident to see Joshua underestimated his opponent.

It was back to the drawing board for the Olympic gold medallist and a rematch was announced almost immediately. Later that year Joshua bounced back and convincingly out skilled a lackluster Luiz Jr in Saudi Arabia to reclaim his WBA IBF WBO and IBO heavyweight championships. Although Joshua’s resilience was never doubted, it was good to see his dedication to right the wrong of his defeat and return with a good performance after losing his undefeated streak.

Tyson Fury 

What a turnaround Tyson Fury has had over the last few years, after falling into depression and ballooning to an unhealthy 400 pounds, Fury has inspired millions with such an incredible turnaround. Fury’s battle with mental health has been well documented and it even got to the extreme of Fury considering ending his life. In a world where mental health issues are so evident, Fury battled addiction to make probably the greatest comeback of all time. After a few tuning fights, many thought Fury bit off more than he could chew by agreeing to a fight the dangerous slugger Deontay Wilder.

Many penned Fury as being passed it, not fit enough and unable to deal with Wilder’s devastating knock out power. Fury’s first fight ended in a farcical draw after dominating the fight which included an incredible amount of dedication by recovering from a devastating knockdown in the last round. It was evident the rematch was pending and the lineal heavyweight champion continued his amazing physical turn around and claimed the WBC championship after defeating Wilder with ease. Fury won by TKO in round seven which surprised many as Fury has never been known as a heavy handed fighter but after a change in his trainers Fury most definitely proved people wrong. A rematch clause has apparently been actioned by Wilder for their trilogy which should be the same outcome which will leave way for the unification fight to happen.

     

Fight Outcome

Joshua goes into this fight as the underdog which probably wouldn’t have been the case if this fight happened few years ago. Styles make fights and this certainly is a clash of skilled styles that should make a fight for the ages. Even though Joshua has his flaws I think a lot of people forget that he isn’t just a knockout puncher like Deontay Wilder. Anthony Joshua is an Olympic gold medallist and has an extremely gifted skillset, saying that I don’t know if it is enough to deal with Fury. Personally I think that Fury will win, Joshua’s best shot is within the first six rounds but after that I think Fury will dominate. Whatever the result, it’s a credit to all fighters mentioned as the heavyweight division is the best it has been in decades.

School leaders must make sure that their teachers have easy access to all the tools that they need.

7. Valued Feedback

All evaluations must include detailed feedback from the school leaders. They must give their teachers constructive criticism regarding their teaching methods and advice on how to improve their performance.

Chevy Corvette Mass Air Flow Explained

Your Corvette needs ample air flow to show off its power and performance. If you have a damaged mass air flow sensor, or MAF sensor, it may affect the performance of your favorite sports car. Learn more about how an MAF sensor works and the signs of a bad MAF sensor. Enjoy affordable prices on OEM replacement parts for long-lasting maintenance.

How a Mass Air Flow Sensor Works

This key component in your electronic fuel injection system monitors and measures the air flow between your air filter and intake manifold. An MAF is critical to keeping an ideal balance of air and fuel in your Corvette.

An MAF sensor uses a heated wire to measure the amount of air entering the intake manifold. A small electronic heater keeps the wire warm. As air enters the manifold, it requires more electricity to keep the wire at a consistent temperature.

This increase in electricity is translated into a digital signal that is sent to your Corvette’s PCM, or powertrain control module. This signal is used to adjust the amount of fuel injected. A damaged MAF sensor affects a range of Chevy Corvette auto parts and can decrease the performance of your engine and automatic transmission.

Signs of a Damaged MAF Sensor

Don’t let a single sensor hold back your favorite sports car. Here are some signs that you may need to pick up a replacement sensor. Look for these parts online or at your nearest auto parts store for an easy DIY maintenance task.

First, a damaged MAF sensor will affect the ignition of your Corvette. Difficulty starting, turning over and any stalling issues are all linked to a faulty sensor. Once your engine does start, any hiccups, lean or rich idling or jerking accelerations can also be caused by this damaged sensor.

Some MAF issues may be subtle, while others make it difficult to start and safely operate your Corvette. An inefficient sensor can affect the horsepower and fuel economy of your car, so it’s important to replace it before continuing to drive.

Consider cleaning your mass air flow sensor before looking for a replacement. These tiny sensors can become contaminated with routine use. Remove the sensor and carefully clean it with rubbing alcohol. Use caution or you may damage the sensor. Be sure to disconnect the wiring. You may need to remove the hose clamps and intake tube to access the sensor.

If this doesn’t work, you’ll need to order a replacement sensor. Choose an MAF sensor that matches your make, model and year of vehicle for an efficient replacement. Replace your sensor using the same steps you used to remove it. Start up your Corvette and look for any signs of engine issues.

Where To Find a Replacement MAF Sensor

Search for affordable OEM replacement MAF sensors today at your local auto parts store. Shop online for Chevy Corvette oil filters, MAF sensors and other replacement parts for easy ordering and fast shipping. Replacing this key sensor restores the full power and optimal air/fuel ratio of your Corvette.

Chevy K1500 Mass Air Flow Explained

For a long time, the K1500 was Chevrolet’s four-wheel-drive three-quarter-ton truck. However, it was discontinued in the U.S. in 2002 and replaced with the Silverado. So, if you own a K1500 and want to keep using it, you will need to maintain it. Some basics such as changing the Chevy K1500 oil filters are very easy. However, what should you do if you have a bad mass air flow sensor?

The Importance of Measuring Air Flow

Many people who drive cars and trucks have no idea what a mass air flow sensor is. Fortunately, the name somewhat says it all. It is a sensor in the air intake system that measures the mass of the air coming in.

This is important because your truck needs to be able to mix the right amount of air and fuel together in the engine. With the wrong mixture, it will not achieve optimal performance or fuel-efficiency. Furthermore, a bad mix causes unnecessary emissions. So, having a working MAF sensor is good for everyone.

How an MAF Sensor Works

The MAF sensor is essentially an electrical resistance meter connected to a wire. The wire portion extends into the air intake. As air flows through the system, it causes friction with the wire and heats the latter up.

Hot metal has greater electrical resistance than cold metal. So, the meter simply measures the resistance of the wire to calculate how much air is flowing through the intake.

The Symptoms of a Bad Mass Air Flow Sensor

If you have a bad MAF sensor, the problem will be noticeable very quickly. The most notable effect of this is that the vehicle may stall shortly after starting. It will also tend to have rough idling and acceleration under load. This is caused by the engine running either a too lean or too rich fuel/air mixture. In other words, there is not enough fuel mixed with the air or too much.

Another noticeable symptom is that the check engine light will illuminate. This is caused by a diagnostic trouble code being set by your vehicle’s on-board diagnostics. When you have a check engine light on, it indicates that there is a problem related to a system that can affect emissions. You can check these codes using an ODB-II reader on any vehicle built after 1996.

If the MAF sensor is the problem, it is typically best to simply replace it. There are many affordable options for these Chevy K1500 auto parts. However, they can also be repaired if you prefer to follow that option. Use a multimeter to find the part of the sensor that is faulty.

Maintain Your Chevy K1500

Keeping your Chevy K1500 running smoothly is easier when you know how to work on it yourself. From oil changes to repairs, you can do a lot of work yourself is you are willing to learn. With some basic tools and a little patience, the basics are easy to pick up. Even bigger jobs such as replacing the MAF sensor can be learned. From there, you can keep learning until you know your truck inside and out.

Best Bike Types for Seniors

Seniors can ride any type of bike, but some styles are made with the preferences of older riders in mind. From a standard bike with a step-through frame to a lower bicycle for short adults, there are design options and features that can make cycling more comfortable and safe. Discover the best bikes for seniors and riding solutions for your lifestyle and level of mobility.

Comfort Bikes

Comfort bikes are versatile designs. A hybrid comfort bike combines features of road and mountain bikes to provide a smooth ride across many types of terrain, from paved streets to trails. You can cover considerable distances on these bikes. A simple, single-speed comfort bike is suitable for riding on flat terrain. Models with more gears facilitate uphill riding and maximize pedaling power.

Bike frames that are made with comfort in mind tend to feature upright seating. This positions reduces joint strain while exercising muscles throughout the body. If you are concerned about keeping your balance, look for a frame with a seat that is low enough for you to put your feet flat on the ground while stopped and pedals that are positioned to enable you to fully extend your legs while on the go.

Cruiser Bikes

Cruiser bikes are stylish designs for casual riding. This type of bike typically has upright seating and handlebars and is intended for shorter rides on mostly level terrain. These bike frames may be made of lightweight material such as aluminum or heavier steel. Compare these options to select the best bikes for heavy people or a maneuverable solution for your height and mobility needs.

Cruisers may be single speed, three-speed or seven-speed, but these bikes generally have less gearing than hybrid bikes or more specialized road or mountain bikes. Wide tires and cushioned seats provide superior shock absorption for a smooth ride. Look for a cruiser bike with a step-through frame for the easiest ride from mounting to dismounting.

Adult Tricycles

If you have balance issues or have never ridden a bike, you may prefer the stability of a tricycle. This type of bike is equipped with three tires, one in front and two in the back. This design allows for superior stability and shock absorption. Tricycles are primarily intended for riding on flat terrain and often feature a built-in cargo solution in the back, such as a basket. This type of a bike may pose less of a risk of injury than any two-wheeled style.

Select the right bike by considering the distance and terrain you plan to ride. Comfort bikes are designed for longer rides on varied surfaces. Cruisers are better for shorter, more casual rides. Tricycles provide superior stability for riding on flat terrain. Any of these bikes may be available with a step-through frame and the option of an electric motor. Motorized bikes offer senior riders the option of pedal assistance or full-electric power at a range of speeds and distances. Most of these styles are also available with standard 26-inch or lower 24-inch wheels for riders of any height.
