Stuff.co.nz 27 Feb 2013The more sex partners young women have, the more likely they are to become dependent on drugs and alcohol, says a new study.University of Otago researchers found young people in general were at greater odds of developing alcoholism and cannabis dependency the more sex partners they had – with the odds even greater for young women.The study tracked the health and behaviour of more than 1000 people from birth in Dunedin in 1972-73.Researchers looked at how many sex partners the study participants had during three age periods: 18-20, 21-25, and 26-31 years.They then looked at their mental health immediately after each period, including anxiety, depression, and substance dependence.The study’s lead author, Dr Sandhya Ramrakha, said women who had 2.5 or more partners each year increased their odds of having a substance dependence disorder by up to 17 times.“This is a striking increase in the risk of substance disorder,” said Ramrakha.“Furthermore, when we used a model to compare men and women who had more than 10-20 sex partners in the same periods, we found that these women were much more likely to have a substance disorder than the men.”She said the strong link between the number of sex partners and substance disorders stayed even after taking into account pre-existing mental disorders and substance problems.http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/love-sex/8358035/Number-of-sex-partners-linked-to-drug-dependency

The Eagles play Arsenal, Leicester City, Chelsea and Liverpool in their next four games.Their fixture list is significantly kinder following that sequence, with no more top-six opponents in their following eight league outings.Wilfried Zaha will be one to keep an eye on in this encounter, having very publicly pushed to leave Palace for the Gunners in the summer.However, Arsenal baulked at his asking price and instead moved to sign Zaha’s Ivory Coast international teammate Pepe from Ligue 1 side Lille.Zaha has not shown his best form so far this term, with no goals and just one assist in 10 appearances across all competitions – a significant drop-off from last season’s tally of 10 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League.The forward could be motivated to produce his best against Arsenal, though, in a bid to convince the club he has supported since he was a child to come back in and get him either in January or next summer. Arsenal possible XI: Leno, Chambers, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Pepe, Ceballos, Saka, Aubameyang.Crystal Palace possible XI: Hennessey, Ward, Tomkiins, Cahill, Van Aanholt, Zaha, Kouyate, Milivojevic, McArthur, Schlupp, Ayew.Tags: ArsenalArsenal FCCrystal Palace
RelatedPosts French court suspends relegation from Ligue 1 PSG retains Ligue 1 title Fabregas scores in Monaco’s first win in seven league games Toulouse sacked coach Antoine Kombouare on Sunday after Saturday’s humiliating 1-0 Coupe de France round of 64 defeat to amateur side Saint-Pryve-Saint-Hilaire extended the club’s worst-ever run of form. The 56-year-old, who oversaw two wins from his first three matches in charge before a run of 10 consecutive losses across all competitions, was only appointed in mid-October as Alain Casanova’s replacement. Lille at home in Ligue 1 and Niort away in the Coupe de la Ligue were Kombouare’s only successes with the club before the barren run set in. However, his final match was a shock defeat to Saint-Pryve, with Carnejy Antoine scoring the game’s only goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time. Denis Zanko has provisionally moved up from the youth academy to lead the senior side ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Brest. Toulouse are bottom of Ligue 1 on goal difference with Nimes also on 12 points. President Olivier Sadran said in mid-December after a 1-0 loss at home to Reims in Ligue 1 that he was prepared to reimburse season ticket holders because of lacklustre performances. Kombouare has previously coached Paris Saint-Germain, Lens, Strasbourg, Guingamp, Dijon and Valenciennes in France. Meanwhile, Ligue 2 side Niort also parted ways with coach Pascal Plancque after their shock Coupe de France defeat to Saint-Pierroise over the weekend. Saint-Pierroise, who come from Reunion, which is just off the coast of Madagascar, travelled almost 10,000 km to win on the mainland and become the first overseas team to qualify for the round of 32 of the Coupe de France in over 30 years.Tags: Antoine KombouareDenis ZankoSaint-Pryve-Saint-HilaireToulouse

Published on November 9, 2018 at 3:47 pm No. 13 Syracuse (7-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) hosts Louisville (2-7, 0-6) on Friday night in the Carrier Dome. The Orange enter after a 41-24 win against Wake Forest, which marked their first November victory since 2015. Louisville has lost six-straight games, most recently falling 77-16 to No. 2 Clemson.Below, The Daily Orange beat writers weigh in on Syracuse’s final home game of the season.Andrew Graham (7-2)No more Lamar, no more problemSyracuse 55, Louisville 21AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLouisville’s 2018 football team is really a shrine to the excellence of Lamar Jackson’s college career. In the past two seasons with the 2016 Heisman winner, the Cardinals averaged 538.8 yards a game. Through nine games post-Jackson? The Cardinals average 344.7 yards. That figure isn’t exactly bad, but it’s a massive regression. Toss in the fact that Louisville is allowing more yards (462.8) than it gains in any given game and you have a very bad football team. Syracuse, on the other hand, isn’t a very bad football team. Syracuse is, in fact, quite good this season. Perhaps better than anybody thought it could be. With a No. 13 ranking in the College Football Playoff top-25 and a potential marquee matchup with No. 3 Notre Dame in Yankee Stadium next weekend, don’t expect SU to mess this one up like it might in years past.Matt Liberman (7-2)Birds fly south in the cold Syracuse 63, Louisville 28I think it’s time we hand Lamar Jackson the 2018 Heisman Trophy because this Louisville offense is terrible. The Cardinals average just over 20 points per game, one of the worst marks in the nation, while the Orange enter this contest the ninth-best scoring offense in the country, netting 41 points per game. But the numbers I’m looking at come on third down, where SU boasts the fourth-best defense, stopping its opponents nearly three quarters of the time. Meanwhile, Louisville allows its opponents to move the chains more than 50 percent of the time. Syracuse has had one of the hottest offenses in the country this year. Even against Wake Forest, when the passing game struggled, SU still put up 41 points. Syracuse should win this game easily and use it as a tune up for No. 3 Notre Dame.Josh Schafer (8-1)“Righting wrongs”Syracuse 62, Louisville 28Two years ago, Syracuse was embarrassed 62-28 in the Carrier Dome on a Friday night ESPN-televised game. Four-year starting quarterback Eric Dungey has never beaten Louisville. He said head coach Dino Babers talked to the team about “righting wrongs.” On Sunday, Babers put up several stats from Syracuse’s last two matchups with Louisville. In Baber’s two games against Louisville as the SU head coach, the Orange lost both by a combined score of 118-38, allowing 1,572 yards in the two losses. In 2018, things are flipped. Syracuse is 7-2 while Louisville sits at 2-7. The Cardinals allow 462.8 yards per game, which ranks 115th in the country. UofL has allowed 56 or more points in three of its last four games. Syracuse gains the 15th most yards per game in the country, while ranking eighth in scoring. The math isn’t hard. If Syracuse’s offense plays up to its standards, the Orange will be on the right side of a blowout. Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments
