Embed from Getty ImagesChris Hughton has denied reports that Brighton have made a move to try to sign Moussa Dembele from Celtic.The striker has been linked with a number of clubs since joining the Glasgow side from Fulham.Speaking after his team’s 2-0 defeat at Chelsea, Seagulls boss Hughton insisted no approach had been made by his club for Dembele.“Certainly as the manager of the football club I’m sure I would know, but there certainly has not been contact between the clubs, so that’s classed as speculation,” Hughton said.“As we get to January the names are going to be thick and fast, but at the moment they are all speculation.”Hughton’s team defended resolutely at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea broke the deadlock courtesy of Alvaro Morata’s header 52 seconds into the second half.Marcos Alonso’s goal on the hour mark sealed a deserved win for the Blues.“The game went as we would have expected, with them having a lot of possession,” Hughton said.“What disappointed me most was the timing of the first goal and the fact that the second was from a set piece.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Your capacity for work is like a muscle. The more you work to develop it, the more it grows. The more you develop the capacity for work, the more you can produce, and the greater quality.The Rise and Fall of the Knowledge WorkerYou live in the Information Age, a time of accelerating, disruptive change. Instead of using your back and your hands as the means of producing, you use your brain. You are what Peter Drucker called a “knowledge worker.”One of the many challenges that accompany being a knowledge worker is that you define your own work. That means you have to decide what needs done, and much of the time, you decide when and how it gets done. Unlike the Industrial Age, there isn’t someone directing your efforts, and it is rare that your slowing down shuts down production.Because you control much of your own work, you also control whether or not you work on what is important, the urgency or pace with which you work, and how much work you actually do. If you work for a big company, you may be able to get by doing very little. If you work for any company, you can easily find yourself distracted by the things that look and feel like work without actually accomplishing much of anything.The challenge with knowledge work is that it can lessen your capacity for real work.Up, ProducerYou can improve your capacity for work. You can increase your endurance, putting forth greater effort over longer periods of time.You can start by turning off all distractions and working a single 90-minute block uninterrupted. You can add additional 90-minutes blocks of focused, concentrated effort as 90-minutes becomes an effort that is easily sustained. Most people don’t spend 90-minutes on their highest priorities in the course of a week, let alone a single day. Think about the results you could produce if you were able to work two 90-minute blocks on your greatest priority every day.One of the greatest determinants as to the results you will produce now and in the future is your capacity for work. It is also the one thing that is within your control that will level the playing field with people who have advantages over you in some other way.If you are being out-hustled, you can change that any time you want to. Even though it may be popular to try to hack success, the straighter, faster, shorter path is to worker harder than anyone else. Essential Reading!

Valley of flaws: On Kashmir troop surge National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah questioned the government move to shift pilgrims and tourists out of J&K. “State Road Transport Corporation (SRTC) buses are being deployed to bus people out from Pahalgam and Gulmarg. If there is a threat to the yatra, why is Gulmarg being emptied,” he asked.CPI(M) leader M.Y. Tarigami questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence in the Parliament over the issue.Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said the removal of Article 35A was to change the demography of the State. “The provision was negotiated by the regional electoral parties and is an article of faith, which should not be breached. Such measures will not change the reality that Kashmir is an issue and has to be resolved. The word is asking India and Pakistan to resolve it and there are also offers to mediate,” he told a Friday congregation in Srinagar.Mehbooba leads all-party delegationMs. Mufti arranged late evening meetings with rival National Conference president Dr. Farooq Abdullah, Peoples Conference chief Sajad Lone, Mr. Tarigami and J&K Peoples Movement head Shah Faesal. Later, Ms. Mufti led a joint delegation of these parties to meet Mr. Malik. Ms. Mufti sought to dispel rumours fuelled by the government order asking the tourists and Amarnath pilgrims to leave as soon as possible.“After a brief discussion, we called on Mr. Malik ji and requested him to dispel rumours that have caused a sense of panic in the Valley,” said Ms. Mufti.Mr. Faesal, while questioning the government advisory, said, “Should Kashmiris also migrate to other places or is it that our lives do not matter?”Meanwhile, sources said Dr. Abdullah extended support to Ms. Mufti. Dr. Abdullah is likely to convene an all-party meet in Srinagar after Mr. Omar Abdullah returns to the Valley.‘Serious and credible inputs on terrorist attacks’After meeting leaders of the parties, Mr. Malik informed the delegation that there were serious and credible inputs regarding terrorist attacks on the Amarnath Yatra.“It is the responsibility of the state to provide security to all its citizens. Unnecessary panic is being created by linking this to all kinds of other issues. A pure security measure is being mixed up with issues with which it has no connection. The political leaders should ask their supporters to maintain calm,” he said.The Governor said he himself had clarified matters on 35A yesterday in Baramulla. J&K parties on Friday warned the Centre against any dilution in the constitutional status of J&K, and sought the government’s clarification on the current “hysteria” in Parliament.“India has finally failed to win over the love of J&K, which rejected divisions on religious grounds and chose secular India. The gloves are finally off, and India has chosen territory over people,” Peoples Democratic Party leader Mehbooba Mufti said.She said the PDP always believed that any concession or a final solution on J&K had to come from India. “But today, the same country seems to be preparing to rob J&K of whatever little is left to protect its unique identity,” she said.Also Read

The physicality of the match hit Phoenix hard, as the Fuel Masters lost two players—Alex Mallari and Jaypee Mendoza—to ejections.Calvin Abueva finished with 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Fuel Masters, but he was the only player in double figures for his squad, which gave up 100 points for the first time this conference.A lot of that had to do with the Beermen finding their range, with five players finishing in double figures—and that doesn’t even include June Mar Fajardo, the reigning five-time MVP who played limited minutes and finished with just nine points.The Beermen also kept Marcio Lassiter’s minutes at the minimum after the gunner missed Game 3 due to a sore back.San Miguel’s defense also bared its teeth, with the Beermen holding the Fuel Masters to just 35 percent shooting from the field. With Matt Ganuelas-Rosser in the lead, the Beermen also held Phoenix gunner Matthew Wright to just six points on 3-of-14 shooting. And the Beermen, on the heels of a 114-91 semifinal rout of the Phoenix Fuel Masters in Game 4 late Tuesday night, are now on the verge of a Finals berth in the PBA Philippine Cup.“Finally, we had a good start.
