NFL Eagles: Defending the title will be a challenge

Next Super Bowl is getting closer


Magical LII Super Bowl is well behind Philadelphia Eagles and now is the time to think about back-to-back. Eagles franchise and people of Philadelphia waited for 57 years to win their first championship and hopes can't be higher as the next LIII Super Bowl is getting closer. Everybody in the team is amazed by their success and they're not hiding it. Rodney McLeod said that he's happy everybody is coming after them. He added that their win "forces everyone to elevate their game and we've got the men to do it. That's the type of guys we have on this team. I'm glad to be in this seat. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

The whole team is aware that becoming the first NFC team that went back-to-back in 25 years will be hard since everybody will try to hunt them down. This fact doesn't bother Eagles too much since they're using the preseason to prepare for numerous challenges that are in front of them. Brandon Graham is convinced that everybody is gunning for them, but he's sure they'll have a lot of trouble taking the title from Philly. He pointed out that Eagles won't take anybody lightly, even if the opposing team is not at their best. This mindset will hopefully help the Eagles to get over every obstacle on the way to the top. They will be everybody's Super Bowl this year and very difficult challenges are in front of them.

Nick Foles said that "It doesn't happen often where a team can go back to back and repeat and that's a challenge in itself." He also reminds fans that last year's success won't help the team to win future games and possibly the championship. That's the thing they've been preaching in hope to create a motivation for the next game and forgetting the last one.

All this motivation and positive thoughts won't be enough if the team is not really believing in success, and first proofs of their dedication will be visible in September once the meaningful football begins. Real fans who are not in a position to be at the stadium, will be able to support their favorite team by watching the Eagles game online. Either way, fandom will be able to see how serious Eagles are when it comes to winning a consecutive championship title.

It is very important that the team stays resistant to negative critique and learn from their mistakes. A lot of people is talking about Super Bowl hangover and that Eagles can fall victim to it. There's no place for fear if your goal is becoming a legend. Guys at Eagles are well aware of that and they'll do everything they know to make people of Philadelphia proud and happy once again.

There were eight teams that repeated in the Super Bowl, and it looks like Philadelphia Eagles are ready to get on the list and ensure a place in history with legendary teams such as Patriots, Broncos, Cowboys, 49ers, Steelers (twice), Dolphins and 66-67 Packers.

An Open Letter To The Woolsey Fire— Enough Is Enough

We are tired of destruction.


There are terrible things that happen every day in our world, and unfortunately, it has gotten to the point where disaster no longer shocks us in the same way it used to.

You started short of one day after the horrifying Thousand Oaks shooting and have since done nothing but haunt countless numbers of people, some of who were also affected by the shooting. You really came with a bang - You were unexpected and too smart to stop. You were out to destroy and nothing would get in your way.

Us, victims are defeated.

The cities You have massacred are now ghost towns, and the families You have affected stand weak in front of burnt land they used to call home. Yet, I cannot be mad at You. You have caused me, my family, and my friends to evacuate our homes. You have destroyed the dance studio I grew up at and the schools my friends graduated from. My former classmates' houses are gone and they are left only with ashes of their belongings.

When disaster strikes I cannot help but feel hatred for the person who brought it upon us. It is always easier to cope with loss and anger when you can find someone to blame but You are not someone. I cannot blame an inanimate object for this. I have no one to hate and it is making everything worse. I want a face to feel anger towards, but all You are is red sparks of flames spreading through everywhere I have ever known. You are a force of nature too strong to be reckoned with. In the four days, You have been here, You have caused over 240,000 homes to be evacuated. You have destroyed 350 homes and caused innocent people to die. Animals have been left to burn in the flames and people have been left homeless. Firefighters are putting their lives on the line to stop You. I do not know why You are here but enough is enough.

My family was not put under mandatory evacuation until Sunday.

Since Thursday I have woken up every morning to a sense of fear that my house was gone. So far I am still lucky to have my home but so many others do not have the same privilege. My friends have come back from college to be with their families only to find themselves homeless, all thanks to You. My hometown looks like the setting of an apocalypse. The grassy fields and colorful barns that used to give life to the San Fernando Valley are now plain darkness. The nature that surrounds the city I grew up in is now gone, and we are left with the remains of the hiking trails, buildings, and communities we used to love so dearly. You have lived enough, give us back our ability to live without the fear of our homes burning down. You are supposed to stay around until next week, but we cannot handle having You here for that much longer.


A resident of the town You burned down

How to Stay Fit in Today’s Busy World

Ways to stay fit when you're always busy

It's hard, but it's not impossible! Reaching the desired level of fitness and maintaining it is perfectly achievable, even for someone with your hectic lifestyle. True, that lifestyle is going to change quite a bit, but all for the better. After a while, you'll get so used to doing these things that they won't seem hard at all. They will have become an intrinsic part of your daily routine and you won't be able to imagine life without them. So, if you genuinely wish to stay fit in this crazy world, this is what you have to do:

Stay hydrated

Let's start with the basics, shall we? Since we are 90% water, it's only natural that our water intake should be appropriate. 8 glasses a day is the recommended daily dose, though even more is just fine. If you're really that forgettable, set a bottle of water on your desk at work, or install a mobile app to remind you of drinking. Whatever process is going on in our body, it will be much more effective if we are well hydrated. The more water you drink, the quicker the results!

Set the priorities straight

One of the main reasons why you are struggling with staying fit lies in the fact that you haven't planned your day well. Too often do we add up tasks to our day when it's actually impossible to accomplish all of them. Get down to analyzing your daily activities and set realistic times for them. You'll see just how much time is really needed for even the simplest things, such as cooking.

Prepare your meals

Speaking of cooking, on the one hand, you have to spend time preparing meals if you wish to eat healthily and remain fit. If your calorie intake is too high, there isn't a workout in the world that can make those extra calories disappear. On the other hand, you have to minimize the cooking time since you are too busy to be around the cooker for hours.

First of all, start bulk cooking at weekends. This way, you'll spend two hours on preparing meals for a few days. Secondly, get used to carrying a lunch box. That's right. Take your healthy snacks, fruits, veggies and homemade meals to work and you'll be less prone to eating unhealthy, calorific junk food.

Push yourself

Whichever type of training you are into, whatever kind of exercise you are doing, you should always keep pushing yourself out of your comfort zone if you wish to make progress. Look at it this way: you already have a busy schedule, so make those repetitions count! If you are taking some time to do exercise, then use it to the maximum.

Hire a professional

No matter if you are keen on working out on your own, or in a group, it would be a great idea to have a personal trainer, even if it's just once a month. A regular check-up by a professional can wonders for your progress. You need someone unbiased who can truly tell how much you have advanced on your journey, supervise your exercises and give helpful suggestions to guide you on your way. As for the cost, prices for hiring a personal trainer vary greatly, but it needn't be too expensive. For example, while in some places it can set you back as much as $100/hr, hiring a personal trainer in Orlando costs only around $50/hr.

Have some sleep

It's no use coming to a training when you are feeling drained. Beauty sleep is good for your overall looks. Once again, if you are working out, make that hour count. There is little chance you can do your best if you haven't had enough hours of healthy, uninterrupted sleep. Humans need water, food, and sleep to function, don't they? Therefore, don't be mean with the essentials!

So, it seems like your life is about to have a makeover. It won't be easy, but it will definitely be worth it. Make some alterations to your routine and you'll see that soon enough you'll be feeling and looking much better, with much more time at your hands.
