Review: Thank U, Next: Maroon 5′s Super Bowl halftime show was basic

first_imgAdam Levine of Maroon 5 performs during halftime of the NFL Super Bowl 53 football game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)There are a number of words you could use to describe Maroon 5′s halftime show performance: Empty. Boring. Basic. Sleepy. Skippable. Unfulfilling. Unnecessary.And those who came to help save the day didn’t do their jobs: If you blinked you would have missed that Travis Scott and Big Boi performed. Even the gospel choir singer was a struggle — clearly they let the wrong one sing lead Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption MOST READ But there was one Scott highlight: He fell backward into the audience and faded away.The rest of the performance went downhill like Scott’s body did. Maroon 5 performed the very terrible hit “Girls Like You,” making the already bad song sound worse by mixing in a gospel choir, led by a singer whose voice would make you walk out of church (sorry, girl).Each transition during the halftime show didn’t feel smooth, and Big Boi appearing on top of a car in a thick mink coat added to the bizarreness of the night.When he performed “The Way You Move,” it just made you wonder what Andre 3000 was doing at the moment. Watching? Sleeping? Probably sleeping while watching.You probably had similar thoughts when Scott was onstage and Drake’s vocals played at the beginning of “Sickomode” — wishing the show had a real superstar like Drizzy to give an epic performance.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Levine grabbed his guitar for “This Love,” while other bandmates also strummed away.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsIt was all going well until a joke was uttered: “A true musical genius who needs no introduction.”That’s when Scott rocketed to the stage. He tried to rap — most of it was bleeped out — in a circle of fire, but his inclusion felt more like an interruption. Scott performed his No. 1 hit, “Sickomode,” and Levine awkwardly danced beside him, which looked almost as bad as Katy Perry dancing next to Missy Elliott at Super Bowl 49. Those thoughts lingered again when Levine sang “Moves Like Jagger.” WHERE IS MICK JAGGER RIGHT NOW AND CAN HE PERFORM? Any of the Stones would do, actually.Who probably should have headlined the halftime show? Gladys Knight.She scored a touchdown with her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner”: The legend’s voice shined brightly as she hit all the right notes ahead of the big game between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.R&B sister duo Chloe x Halle were also in top-notch form: They harmonized like a veteran girl group as they sang “America the Beautiful” at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The group, nominated for two Grammys at next week’s show including best new artist, are signed to Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment.Noise and controversy surrounded this year’s Super Bowl since some have boycotted the NFL over treatment of Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem.

Neymar ‘cried for two days’ after new foot injury

first_img“It’s more complicated. The first time I hurt myself I said, ‘I’ll have an operation, it has to be fixed as quickly as possible’. I wasn’t sad,” he told Globo TV.“This time, I took it harder.

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: INTERMITTENT FASTING

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: We have long been told that breakfast was the most important meal of the day.Whether your intention was weight loss or muscle gain, not eating breakfast was a complete no, no.The old adage goes that breakfast ‘kick-starts’ our metabolism and then eating small and often throughout the day keeps it ticking over. The idea was that if you eat too little or miss meals, your metabolism would slow down to a crawl and fat loss would stall altogether.Over the last few years a number of nutrition and fitness experts have been championing the idea that eating LESS OFTEN is the best way to not only burn more fat, but also to live a healthier life.John Romaniello author of ‘Engineering the Alpha’ describes Intermittent Fasting as alternating intervals of not eating (fasting) with times when you are allowed to eat.Sound confusing? It’s not really a difficult a concept to grasp.Why fasting?Researchers have found that after a few hours of fasting, the body breaks cholesterol into bile acids. 
At the same time the liver shuts down glucose production, which lowers blood glucose levels. 
This excess stored liver glucose is now used to repair damaged cells and make new DNA. 
While this is happening, liver enzymes are helping in the creation of brown fat, which converts extra calories to heat.What does this mean for you??What the science tells us is, that in a fasted state you are enhancing your body’s ability to burn fat as an energy source. 

You are basically teaching your body to become more adept at shifting back to burning fat after a meal. Intermittent Fasting has also been thought to have anti-aging effects and can help regulate blood glucose levels, and can ‘treat’ asthma, autoimmune diseases and cardiac arrhythmias.Sounds like a win-win situation doesn’t it?There are a few methods of Intermittent Fasting that the top proponents use.Brad Pilon, author of ‘Eat Stop Eat’, uses a 24 hour fasting model. He recommends it 1-2 times per week.Once per week as a full 24 hour fast or using 2, 12 hour fasts on 2 separate days.The 12 hour fasts can be done easily; 
You can simply sort your schedule so you have your last meal shortly before bed, sleep through the majority of the fasting period and have your first meal after the 12 hours are up.Pilon advocates a ‘lunch to lunch’ or a ‘dinner to dinner fast’.This kind of fasting has also been shown to help stave off degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons.Another type of fasting is Martin Berkhan’s 16-8 model.Berkhan advises condensing your nutritional intake into an 8 hour ‘eating window’ to maximise hormonal benefits.The idea behind the 16 hour fast is that you produce Growth Hormone when you sleep.Eating shuts down the body’s ability to produce Growth hormone because of spikes in insulin levels.By pushing back when your first meal and avoiding eating at night, you can maximise growth hormone production.10am to 6pm eating window.What does this mean for you?Hugh Jackman used this model of Intermittent fasting for the last ‘Wolverine’ Movie.Jackman credits this style of eating for getting him as lean and muscular as he ever has been.John Romaniello also uses the 16-8 model but with a slight difference.Romaniello adds in ‘cheat days’ which he calls the ‘Feast/Fast model with clients who have become used to the fasting model.On the cheat days you can eat whatever you like but you follow this up with a 36 hour fast.Romaniello states that this has not only physical benefits but also physiological and emotional benefits.Dieting causes Leptin levels to drop which will slow down fat loss, the cheat day allows for the boosting of leptin which in turn increases the rate of fat loss.Romaniello also says that putting a fast day after a cheat day does 2 things;1: ‘Prevents any fat gain from the extra calories of the cheat day by creating an immediate deficit the following day.’ 
2: ‘Prevents the slowing of fat loss and allows the hormonal benefits of the fast to proceed uninterrupted.’What does this mean for you as a beginner to this way of eating?These methods of fasting, when advised and monitored by an educated professional, could potentially help you to burn more fat and build lean muscle while getting some hormonal and even anti-aging effects, and did I mention that Wolverine uses it?
