Conte: ‘Inter have to kill games off’

first_img “I hope these games will help us realise we must kill – in a sporting sense – the opponent and kill the game when we have the chance.” Eriksen is settling into his trequartista role behind Lukaku and Lautaro, as Conte changed the team’s tactics to fit the Dane. read also:Conte: ‘Inter deserved the Final’ “We must continue using these new solutions. We had more time to work with Christian, both tactically and physically, during the lockdown. He has settled in, but must be even more determined and score more goals. “We’re six points off the top with 12 rounds to go. There’s no margin for error, whereas Lazio and Juventus can have the odd mistake and get away with it. “This is why need that ferocity in front of goal, because with a strong lead, we can then relax on the ball.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Antonio Conte assures Inter are still in the Scudetto race after beating Sampdoria 2-1, but they ‘must learn to kill – in a sporting sense – the games off.’ Now at Inter Milan, Conte signed Moses on loan in January, much to the wing-back’s delight The Nerazzurri were absolutely dominant in the first half and scored two excellent team goals with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, but somewhat petered out after the break. They still held on for a 2-1 victory over Samp that puts them within six points of leaders Juventus. “This evening, we had no choice but to get the victory so we could close the gap to six points,” said Conte in his press conference. “We fuel the hope that we can achieve something extraordinary. It’s true that we could’ve sealed it earlier by making more of our chances, but instead we conceded at the first Samp attempt and got a little anxious. It was a good performance, anyway. “I repeat, it’s not a fitness issue, but when we have scoring opportunities and do not take them, which also happened in the Coppa Italia with Napoli, all it takes is one lucky ricochet and it’s all up for grabs again.center_img Promoted ContentWill You Recognize Celebs In Their Kid Photos?Couples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way7 Theories About The Death Of Our UniverseEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

USC students teach health at schools

first_imgDuring their gym period, the ninth graders at Green Dot Animo South Los Angeles Charter High School are restless.  They want to talk to their friends and play basketball.Eventually, members of USC Peer Health Exchange manage to corral them and settle them in for a lesson on the importance of health education.As the high schools around Los Angeles are usually underfunded and understaffed, health classes are not a part of the core curriculum. Often, the lessons are the only exposure the students have to helpful and accurate information about health, and the only opportunity for them to ask questions in a safe and nonjudgmental environment.Armed with lessons and workshop materials, Peer Health Exchange visits high schools once or twice a week to teach students in their health classes. Peer Health Exchange was started in 1999 by a group of Yale University graduates and has since grown into a national nonprofit organization. Boasting chapters in major areas all over the United States, including Chicago, Washington, D.C., Boston, New York City, the Bay Area and Los Angeles, the organization matches local high schools with college students looking for experience in the health or education fields.Martha Wolnicki, a junior majoring in neuroscience, and Rachel Belzer, a senior majoring in health promotion and disease prevention, act as co-presidents of the USC branch, taking on administrative duties and evaluating the workshop materials to ensure they will run smoothly.“We have a series of 13 workshops where we talk about accessing resources, how to find health information and decision-making regarding sex, drugs and alcohol,” Belzer said. “We also do communication and advocacy, teaching these students how to stand for themselves, how to communicate and how to get information they need if it’s not readily available.”Wolnicki said the team offers services local students typically lack.“A lot of the time these students don’t really have accurate sources of information, so it’s important that we clarify their questions,” Wolnicki said. “They need to have proper information so they can make the right decisions for themselves and others.”The program offers a chance to experience work in the health education field, gives members a head start on their future professions and endows them with new skills.Kathleen Tor, a senior majoring in biological sciences, had no teaching experience prior to joining Peer Health Exchange but said she gained a lot out of the program.“I’ve discovered that I really enjoy teaching, breaking down information and passing it down to students,” Tor said. “For volunteers, PHE is an opportunity to follow their passion for health promotion while simultaneously giving back to the community.Christopher Lees, a senior majoring in human biology, said he wanted to extend his reach beyond the bubble of USC and connect with the wider L.A. community.“To be able to communicate with the younger demographic of Los Angeles is something I take a lot of pride in,” Lees said. “I’m planning to matriculate into medical school in the fall, and it’s given me a better range of what I can expect in the medical field because these are the next generation of people that are coming through. Empowering students to make their own healthy decisions is something I’m a really big proponent of, and this was one of the best programs for me to do that.”last_img read more
