Guardiola has built on Heynckes' Bayern legacy - Muller

Pep Guardiola has continued to improve Bayern Munich since replacing Jupp Heynckes, Thomas Muller insists. Thomas Muller is adamant that Pep Guardiola has built on the legacy of Jupp Heynckes' treble-winning Bayern Munich side of 2012-13. Bayern beat all comers to clinch an unprecedented treble of the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Champions League under the stewardship of Heynckes. Since then, Bayern have continued to dominate domestically under Guardiola and they won the Bundesliga at a canter by 10 points this term. However, success in Europe has not followed, with Bayern falling at the Champions League semi-final stages to Real Madrid and Barcelona, leading some pundits to suggest that the club has not progressed since Heynckes departed. But Germany forward Muller, who scored 13 league goals this term, insists the team have continued to improve under Guardiola. "[Heynckes and Guardiola] developed me so much, they have moulded me as a player. Heynckes played me a lot, and he was a striker himself, so he had good advice for me about goalscoring. And how can you not learn under Pep Guardiola?" Muller told Squawka. "The team [Heynckes] put together that won the Champions League, as well as the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal, is one of the best Bayern sides ever. He is so driven, so ambitious and so smart. When he left, whoever followed him was going to have to be very confident in themselves, because how can you top a treble like that? "Only someone like Pe...  

Bank stocks could rise as forex cloud lifts

Their guilty pleas this week tied to charges of market manipulation — whileembarrassing for the industry and the nation — hardly suggest the companies, or their stocks, are on the decline, experts say. In fact, the opposite is true.Large banks like Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase could see their stocks rise in the coming months, especially if they can prove they have put the bulk of their regulatory and legal woes behind them."It's a black mark and a sad day for the banking industry," said CLSA banking analyst Mike Mayo. But it's also "the ninth inning for the major bank fines," Mayo said of the $5.5 billion in fines tied to the guilty pleas.On Wednesday, four major banks — Citigroup, JPMorgan, Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland — pleaded guilty to felony charges for conspiring to manipulate currency prices, including U.S. dollars and euros. UBS pleaded guilty to a lesser wire fraud charge.Traders, who dubbed themselves "The Cartel," were accused of rigging foreign exchange prices from December 2007 to January 2013.

Vitamin B3 may prevent some cancers

For the first time, a large study suggests that a vitamin might modestly lower the risk of the most common types of skin cancer in people with a history of these relatively harmless yet troublesome growths.In a study in Australia, people who took a specific type of vitamin B3 for a year had a 23 percent lower rate of new skin cancers compared to others who took dummy pills. In absolute terms, it meant that vitamin takers developed fewer than two of these cancers on average versus roughly 2.5 cancers for the others.The study did not involve melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. Instead, it aimed at more common forms — basal and squamous cell cancers. More than 3 million cases are diagnosed each year in the United States."These are sort of the run-of-the-mill skin cancers that so many people get," said Dr. Richard Schilsky, chief medical officer of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, an organization of cancer specialists. "They're rarely lethal but they're very persistent and they keep coming back," and are expensive to remove, usually through surgery, freezing off the spots or radiation. He and other doctors with the oncology group said the vitamin, called nicotinamide, could offer a cheap, easy way to lower risk.However, Australia has higher rates of skin cancer than the U.S. and other parts of the world, and some doctors may want more evidence beyond this single study before recommending the pills. Vitamins have long proved elusive for cancer preventio...  

Boca's Wick Theatre Channels Tavern on the Green With New Tavern Restaurant

The Wick Theatre has debuted The Tavern, a restaurant modeled after Central Park's famous The Tavern on the Green. Photo courtesy of The Wick Theatre and Costume Museum If you've ever dreamed of dining at landmark The Tavern on the Green in New York City's Central Park, Boca Raton might just now have the next best thing (you can get to without a plane ticket, anyway.) This month, The Wick Theatre and Costume Museum in Boca Raton debuted a new feature, a full-service restaurant that looks like a mini-replica of one of New York City's most iconic restaurants. Dubbed The Tavern, the Wick's new restaurant  is open to both theatre patrons and the public for dinner, brunch, and private catered events with a menu that offers a variety of American, French, Continental, and country-style cuisine. According to the theatre proprietor Marilynn Wick, the idea to open a restaurant has been a long time coming. Over the years, she's received multiple requests to implement a dining experience for theatre guests, she said."Now, we are thrilled to finally open The Tavern to the public," said Wick, who has given the space a decided historic ambiance with dining room decor meant to evoke a similar experience to New York's Tavern on the Green, which closed in 2009.Many of The Tavern's elements — from the chandelier and table settings, to the photo replica wallpaper depicting the Tavern on the Green's garden panorama — are original pieces sourced from Central...  

Not just hookers: Oil-patch women say energy industry is safe place with ...

M arch 12: 2013: A man works on the rig of an oil drilling pump site in McKenzie County outside of Williston, North Dakota. (Reuters) Judging by its critics, the energy industry – and specifically the oil and gas industry in North Dakota – isn’t female-friendly. Yet women who live and work in the oil patch say the energy industry isn’t just a safe place for women, but that there are plenty of opportunities for everybody. In popular media North Dakota’s oil patch is often depicted as a rowdy place full of roughnecks and prostitutes. A new weekly drama from ABC called “Oil!” which is supposedly set in North Dakota – though that’s hard to tell with the snowcapped peaks of Utah, the actual setting, in the background of nearly every scene – looks to portray oil-patch communities as a sort of nouveau wild west. Stories about strippers striking it rich at oil-town topless bars and struggles with human trafficking dot national headlines.  Even some of North Dakota’s political leaders have branded the state unsafe for women. In their 2013 party platform, North Dakota Democrats accused Republican majorities in the state of ignoring “the emergent danger women face by simply being women in this state.” Nationally, activists have declared hydraulic fracking a feminist issue. “Fracking as an industry serve...  

'Paracetamol in pregnancy could harm baby boy

PREGNANT women have been warned that taking paracetamol could harm their unborn babies, as the popular painkiller is believed to have life-long effects on baby boys, raising their risk of everything – from infertility to cancer. Edinburgh University researchers, in a report published in Science Translational Medicine, said that Britons have become “blasé” about paracetamol’s potential dangers – and urged pregnant women to think twice before taking the drug. They said that if the tablets are taken, they should be used in the lowest possible dose, for the shortest possible time. The Royal College of Midwives said mothers-to-be should seek medical advice before taking paracetamol at all. Paracetamol is the most widely-used painkiller in the world. And as the only painkiller deemed safe in pregnancy, it is taken by most mothers-to-be. However several studies have suggested it interferes with the development of the male reproductive system while still in the womb. This is important because it is thought that if this programming goes wrong, it has lifelong effects, putting the child at higher risk of a range of problems from genital birth defects to infertility and testicular cancer. Testosterone, which is made in the testicles, is thought to be key to the whole process, so the researchers carried out an experiment designed to show if exposure to paracetamol in the womb cuts levels of the hormone. Women who take paracetamol during pr...  

AC Milan 2005: Where are they now?

10 years on from that incredible Champions League final at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul, we find out what happened to the stars from the beaten AC Milan team. Carlo Ancelotti's side was a formidable one, decorated with some of the greatest names to play football over the last two decades. So, where are Andriy Shevchenko, Paolo Maldini and co now? Dida At the time of the 2005 final Dida was rated as one of the world's best goalkeepers, having won the Champions League with Milan in 2003 and broken the competition's consecutive clean sheets record with seven in 2005. After leaving Milan in 2010, he had a near two-year hiatus from football before returning to play in his native Brazil. He most recently played for Nacional, but has agreed to sign for Coritiba after falling out of favour at the Porto Alegre club. Cafu Brazil's most-capped player and one of the best full-backs to ever play the game. Despite being 35 at the time of the 2005 final, he was still a key man at Milan and on the international stage. After retiring from football and leaving Milan in 2008, Cafu has been spotted at numerous sporting events around the world as he makes the most of his free time. He was last seen visiting the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing Team during the Itajai In-Port sailing race in April this year. Jaap Stam Familiar to Reds from his stint at Manchester United, Stam was an uncompromising Dutch defender who built a reputation as one of Europe's most solid centre-backs.
