Through those activities, they created fun and shared such good time from the beginning.One CARP student from São Paulo University gave the main speech with the theme, “Overcoming the negative aspects of the human personality”, pointing out that all the problems in our world begin from the contradiction of the human nature and showing the solution from the internal viewpoint.

LOS ANGELES — Fedor Emelianenko will find himself

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Fedor Emelianenko will find himself in a familiar spot on Saturday night: Headlining a major event in a big city.“The Last Emperor” has undergone an improbable career resurgence over the past year, having scored first-round finishes of Frank Mir and Chael Sonnen to reach the finals of the Bellator heavyweight grand prix tournament.The tourney concludes on Saturday night with Emelianenko’s main event bout against light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader, which will crown a Bellator heavyweight champion.But the fact remains, the former longtime PRIDE heavyweight titleholder is 42 years old, and has already retired once before. So he’s not afraid to admit that even with a title victory over Bader, a return to MMA retirement is a possibility.“To tell the truth, at the age I’m at right now, more and more I am thinking about retiring,” Emelianenko told reporters Wednesday through an interpreter at the Bellator 214 open workouts at Viacom headquarters in Hollywood.That said, he didn’t give in to several attempts to commit one way or another, deflecting each time by saying he’ll think about it after the bout.“I cannot answer this question at this moment,” Emelianenko said. “But I am willing to take some rest and then decide.”The former longtime PRIDE champion first retired in 2012. After leaving Strikeforce with three straight losses, he won three more in his homeland of Russia and Japan before calling it quits.Since his 2015 return, Emelianenko has won four of five fights, with his only loss coming after his half of a double knockdown against Matt Mitrione landed a split second too late.That lends credence to Emelianenko’s words when he says that if he does step away, it will simply because of advancing age, and not because he’s lost the love of competition. “It is not because I don’t want to fight,” Emelianenko said. “Definitely it is because of the age, you know, and injuries that I have.”In the meantime, Emelianenko finds himself relevant and in big fights well north of age 40. He says nothing has changed in his mental approach.“To tell the truth there are no secrets,” Emelianenko said. “You have to put the goal together and work toward it.” Brock Lesnar’s WWE Future After UFC Retirement Standard BJJ Gi California: Say Bye To Your Mortgage If You Have No Missed… Fetcharate Unknown Rule in Los Angeles, CA Which is More Dangerous – MMA or Football?

Field Vine Opens This Week in Somerville

Field & Vine counter seats and dining room. / Photos by Jacqueline CainA magical-feeling nook of Union Square comes to life again this week. Field & Vine officially opens for dinner on Wednesday, September 13, in the space that formerly housed Journeyman.Field & Vine is the first brick-and-mortar venture from Sara Markey and Andrew Brady, the couple behind the pop-up Company Picnic. It’s Brady’s third kitchen on Sanborn Court, the alleyway off Union Square, though. He and Markey met as employees at Bronwyn, and Brady also cooked with Forklift Catering next door. They live in the neighborhood and were friendly with the Journeyman team from hosting pop-ups with them, and the location is a natural fit.Field & Vine introduced a new menu at sister spot Backbar in July. The restaurant is just about 40 seats, including seven at a counter around the open kitchen and raw bar. Brady’s team removed one of three grills left over from the Heat at Journeyman days, and installed a small flat-top and a fryer. He plans to use the wood-fired grill, though, on his frequently changing menu.“It’s nice to get that flavor in the food. During prep, we can roast a bunch of tomatoes there and make sauces to get that flavor into things without actually having to cook on the grill during service,” Brady says.Junior Montillo, who started as a dishwasher at Journeyman and worked his way up, returned to the new restaurant and will lead that station. “It’s great to have him,” Brady says. “He knows the space and he knows the grill.”The only other hold-over from the Journeyman days is a striking, custom woven-branch and rope sculpture by Foret Design Studio, a Best of Boston Weddings-award winning team with a new storefront on the other side of the square.“We toyed with idea of taking it out, but it went with our whole idea, our whole vibe,” Markey says. “It’s such a statement, it’s so beautiful, and obviously, it took some time to make.”Like Journeyman, Field & Vine will not have a cocktail bar. Markey offers a menu of wine, beer, cider, and apertifs. They’re going to listen to guests on whether to add a small list of batched cocktails from the Backbar team, Brady adds.Field & Vine lightened the room quite a bit with a new coat of soft green paint, new grey floors, and custom-built, pale wood benches and heart pine tables. Throw pillows are hand-made by Cora Meginsky, dyed naturally with onion skin, sumac, avocado pit, calendula, and other materials. At least until the harvest is over, diners will see some of the same foraged ingredients, like the edible flowers atop Brady’s bluefish pâté, on their plates, Markey adds.The menu at Field & Vine isn’t prix-fixe, like Journeyman’s was. Broken down by “raw bar,” “snacks,” “vegetables,” and “not vegetables,” it’s all meant to be shared among the table.“We want it to be casual,” Brady says. “The menu will rotate constantly. Things will probably change soon, with all the summer stuff disappearing. It’s okay, delicata squash is coming,” he adds, with a laugh. Check out a sample menu below.Field & Vine opens for dinner on Wednesday, September 13. For now, it will serve Tuesday-Thursday from 5-10 p.m., and stay open until 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.9 Sanborn Court, Somerville, 617-718-2333, to view larger.Click to view larger.Fluke crudo at Field & Vine. / Food photos providedGrilled beets with peach, halloumi, and basil at Field & Vine. / Food photos providedA vegetable dish at Field & Vine. / Food photos providedlast_img read more

The Yawkey Commuter Rail Station Is Getting a Name Change

first_img 3/29/2019, 9:54 a.m. 27128 Transportation The Yawkey Commuter Rail Station Is Getting a Name Change It’s another sign of local efforts to change landmarks named after former Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey. Photo via Wikimedia CommonsAnother monument to the Tom Yawkey era has been renamed. Yawkey Station, the commuter rail stop in the Fenway area, will now be known as Lansdowne.MBTA officials said the change is in keeping with their station naming policy, which prioritizes references to local landmarks, streets, or neighborhoods. And with Yawkey Way now a thing of the past, the station now refers to nearby Lansdowne Street.Last April, the iconic Red Sox thoroughfare just outside Fenway Park had its name changed back to the original name, Jersey Street. It had been named after former Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey in 1977. The MBTA station has only served the area since 2014.Current Red Sox owner John Henry has worked to disassociate the team from the Yawkey era. Yawkey owned the Red Sox from 1933 until his death in 1976, and his history with the team is marked by accusations of racial animus. Under Yawkey, the Sox were the very last MLB team to integrate racially, signing their first black player 12 long years after Jackie Robinson broke into the league.When Henry asked the city to change the street’s name, the proposal passed unanimously.JUST IN: @MBTA announces it’s renaming Yawkey Station to Lansdowne Station starting April 8, before the @RedSox home opener.#NBC10Boston— Leo Ruiz (@ProducerLeo) March 28, 2019The MBTA’s announcement came, no coincidence, on Opening Day for the MLB. Officials say signage will be switched to “Lansdowne” by April 8, the day before the Red Sox’ first home game.“While we are disappointed by this decision, the Yawkey Foundations will carry on the mission of Tom and Jean Yawkey, a legacy of giving that has provided more than $500 million to organizations in Boston and beyond,” said the Yawkey Foundation in a statement.
