"Girls are very neat. They like to be perfect and please the teacher," Rosser says. "Whereas boys will just get down the ideas, they'll get the work in. But the girls want it perfect and that's from a very young age. And it carries on to the sports-field as well." Trying to understand the differences between girls and boys, and women and men, comes with the obvious disclaimer that there are generalisations involved and everyone is different. But what can sometimes get bypassed in the effort to treat every boy and girl in sport the same is the appreciation that girls and boys can respond differently to things. If, as Rosser points out, some girls from an early age want to be perfect and please the teacher, how does that mindset manifest itself when they play sport? In The Female Brain, neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine wrote: "More than 99pc of male and female genetic coding is exactly the same. But that percentage difference influences every single cell in our bodies - from the … [Read more...] about Sinéad Kissane: ‘Equal treatment in sport also means understanding massive mindset differences between females and males’

This article is available to Members of The Local. Read more articles for Members here. The term sambo is used to describe couples in Sweden who live together. It's a shortened form of the adjective sammanboende (where samma means 'together' and boende comes from the verb bo meaning 'to live'), and Swedish also has the term särbo to refer to couples who live apart. Both these words typically suggest a serious and long-term relationship, although they can be used for couples who have been together for months or for decades. Depending on the couple, a sambo relationship may be a stepping stone on the way to marriage, or a substitute: marriage rates are lower in Sweden than in many other European countries, with many couples choosing to remain sambos throughout their whole lives. From a purely bureaucratic point of view, marriage makes a lot less difference than in many other countries. There are no tax deductions for married couples, for example, and the process for … [Read more...] about The difference between sambo and marriage in Sweden
Alexandre Lacazette has opened up on the differences between Arsene Wenger and Unai Emery to Arsenal legend Ian Wright. The Frenchman was brought in last summer by the former Gunners boss but struggled during his debut season at the club. Lack of form and injury led to the Gunners recruiting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January, further hampering the striker's game time. But the 27-year-old has enjoyed a positive start to this season, scoring five goals and producing three assists in 12 appearances. Speaking to Wright on Premier League Today , Lacazette outlined the differences between Wenger and Emery. "On the pitch, yeah, we feel differently," said the France striker. "[Working harder?] Yes because there is more tactics now. "The coach as well is demanding higher with every player. Yeah I like it. It’s the best way to improve. "The coach – it doesn’t matter which player it is – will always ask them to be on the top. I think he’s one of the reasons … [Read more...] about Alexandre Lacazette explains to Ian Wright difference between Emery and Wenger
FOGGY or misty weather can have a real impact on travel in the UK. While it can make the landscape look somewhat magical, not a lot of people actually know how fog is formed and how it differs from mist. What is fog? Fog is like a low-level cloud that originates from a local body of water - such as a lake, marsh or the sea. It differs from regular clouds because it contains water droplets from a number of different sources. When water vapour in the air condenses into tiny droplets of liquid water, they stay suspended in the air and fog is formed. Fog contains up to 0.5 ml of water per cubic metre. If you were to fill an Olympic sized swimming pool with fog and then somehow condense it, you would be left with around 1.25 litres of water - just over 2 pints). The foggiest place in the world is an area of the Atlantic Ocean called Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland. The area forms the meeting place of the cold Labrador Current from the north and the much warmer Gulf Stream from the … [Read more...] about What’s the difference between fog and mist and how do you drive safely in it?
THE RYDER CUP is dominated by two distinct formats on the opening two days. Both sides engage in foursomes and fourballs before they play in 12 single matches on Sunday. But what are the differences between them? And when will they be played at Le Golf National? Read on below to find out all the details.What is the difference between foursomes and fourballs at the Ryder Cup? Foursomes Each player in each pair hits alternate shots. So if Player A hits the drive from the first hole, Player B hits the second shot, Player A the third shot and so on. One player will hit all the tee shots on even numbered holes, for example, the second, fourth, 16th and 18th. The other will play first on all the odd holes. If the par-5s fall on the even holes, it would make sense for the longest hitter in the pair to take those tee shots. Amazing drone footage shows the 2018 Ryder Cup Albatros Course of Le Golf National Likewise, if one player is particularly strong with their irons then they should try … [Read more...] about What is the difference between foursomes and fourballs, and when will they be played at the Ryder Cup?
