Then last fall she headed back into the gym her family owns in suburban Houston with no firm plans and no timetable other than to see what she and new coaches Laurent and Cecile Landi could cook up. At 21, she’s taken more ownership of her routines. The weight of expectations she carried during the buildup to Rio de Janeiro is gone. No matter what happens during the rest of her career, she will always have those five Olympic — oh, and 14 world championship — medals.They aren’t going anywhere. Neither is she. Let her get one thing out of the way: She didn’t have to come back. She wanted to. The difference isn’t semantic. It’s one of the reasons she believes her best gymnastics is still to come.“I feel like I have a stronger mindset and I’m not as nervous,” Biles said. “Not for this particular competition. I still have a lot of nerves I need to get out in the trainings that we have to come, but I feel like I’m in a better place. I trust my body more. I trust my gymnastics more. So overall I’m in a better place.”Even if the organization she is returning to following her hiatus is not.While Biles returned to the United States to newfound stardom, USA Gymnastics returned to questions about how it handled complaints of sexual misconduct by member coaches raised by an Indianapolis Star investigation. The story mushroomed in the fall of 2016, eventually leading to accusations that former Olympic team trainer Larry Nassar sexually abused gymnasts.ADVERTISEMENT Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go? ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins LATEST STORIES Report: Disney dropping the ‘Fox’ from movie studio names Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READcenter_img In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ FILE – In this Aug. 11, 2016, file photo, United States’ Simone Biles performs on the floor during the artistic gymnastics women’s individual all-around final at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Biles is ready to take aim at the 2020 Olympics. The gymnastics star and 2016 Olympic champion returns to competition for the first time in two years on Saturday at the US Classic in Columbus, Ohio. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)COLUMBUS, Ohio — Simone Biles wasn’t bragging. That’s never really been her thing. Her tone was confident but not cocky. Sincere without the swagger.Yes, the defending Olympic champion — who returns to competition for the first time since the 2016 Games when she competes in the U.S. Classic on Saturday night — really does believe she’s better now than she was when she stepped off the podium in Rio de Janeiro two years ago with a record-tying fourth gold medal around her neck.ADVERTISEMENT Putin’s, Xi’s ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West Nassar, a longtime sports doctor at Michigan State who also volunteered as the team physician for USA Gymnastics, is serving decades in prison for child pornography and other crimes after hundreds of women said he sexually abused them under the guise of medical care. Biles revealed she was one of Nassar’s victims in January.She has declined to get into specifics, preferring to move forward instead of looking back. Yet she also understands how having the Olympic champion on the competition floor can turn the spotlight — at least briefly — back to the sport itself and not the scandal.“I hope so because gymnastics has been a big part of my life, the coaches’ lives, the gymnasts’ lives, everyone’s lives out here,” she said. “So I hope looking from the outside in they’ll want to put their kids in gymnastics and find the love and joy that we have for it.”A joy that Biles insists remains. The proof can be found in the way she’s embraced the chance not to reclaim what she once had but instead turned her focus into pushing herself — and gymnastics — further. She’s upped her difficulty on both bars and floor. She’s likely going to ditch the Amanar as her primary vault for the Cheng, which offers the promise of a higher score if done correctly.“That’s amazing because usually, they’re holding on to what they had and she’s eclipsed that and doing far more,” said Tom Forster, named the new high-performance coordinator for the national team earlier this month. “I’ve never seen that. I’ve never seen that before, so that’s exciting. She’s amazing.”Biles has an opponent none of the other women in the field have to face: her legacy. She hasn’t lost a meet in five years. Yet as great as she’s felt in practice, even she’s a little curious about how she’ll respond when the lights come on and the scores count.Maybe it’ll be the same as it ever was. Or maybe the nerves that got to her at the 2013 U.S. Classic, when she was removed from the all-around just before the vault after an iffy warm-up, will return, even if only for a minute.“This competition is for her to test herself,” Laurent Landi said. “I don’t care about the score. I don’t care about the result. I want her to have that feeling, the adrenaline to compete, how to deal with pressure, the holding for the TV on the bars and stuff like that. I want that again.” Lowry mum on Raptors, speaks only about USA Basketball Trump assembles a made-for-TV impeachment defense team Asked on Friday how her gymnastics in 2018 stack up against the form she showed in Brazil — when Biles cemented her status as one of her sport’s all-time greats with 10 days of breathtaking performances that left her peers grasping for superlatives — Biles didn’t hesitate. She giggled a bit. But she didn’t hesitate.“I would probably beat her, yeah,” Biles said.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’And it only took eight months.Biles took a lengthy post-Olympic breather to enjoy the perks of her newfound fame.

Tattoo artist stabbed to death

first_img… minibus conductor arrestedA tattoo artist was on Friday evening stabbed to death during an alleged robbery in the vicinity of Demico House, Stabroek Market, Georgetown. Raul Rodrigues, 40, also called “Tattoo Man” of Lot 64 Leopold Street, Georgetown, was attacked and stabbed once to his chest by two men during the robbery.Dead tattoo artist: Raul RodriguesReports are Rodrigues, who is also a mason, was consuming alcohol in Leopold Street, Georgetown earlier in the day but reportedly left to collect his child’s mother, who was getting off from work at 20:00h.However, Guyana Times understands that while walking in the vicinity of Dairy Bus Park, he was attacked by two males where he was stabbed. In an attempt to escape from his assailants, he collapsed in front of Demico House. The perpetrators reportedly relieved him of an iPhone he was carrying at the time.He was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) where he reportedly died while receiving medical attention.Annastacia Rodrigues, a sister of the dead man told Guyana Times that she was at home in Campbell Street, Albouystown, when she received a telephone call informing her that her brother was stabbed. As she was hurrying out, another friend told her that he was dead and that the family must rush to the hospital.Upon arriving at the medical facility, she was restricted from seeing her brother although she pleaded with the security guards to be allowed to see him.“About an hour and a half later, they come out and tell us that he was dead,” she related. Again, she requested to see her bother but that request was denied. However, she returned to the Police Station on Saturday morning where she was told that someone was arrested for the murder.“The Police tell me that they arrested a man, but they could not say if he was the one who stabbed my brother, but they tell me that investigations are continuing,” she noted.Nevertheless, she recalled that her sister was also stabbed and killed six years ago but no one was ever charged for the murder. She however, vowed to seek justice for her brother this time around.While at Rodrigues’ house, her mother fainted several times as she cried out “they kill him… they kill him… no body nah do nothing to save he life.”Meanwhile, the mother of the dead man’s child reportedly told Police that she left work and was heading to the minibus park when she saw someone lying on the ground and upon checking, she realised that it was Rodrigues. She noted that from all indications, he was already dead.The Police in a release stated that Rodrigues was involved in an altercation with two men when one of them armed himself with an object and dealt him one blow to the region of his heart. Guyana Times understands that a 28-year-old minibus conductor was arrested and is being questioned in relation to the murder.Rodrigues leaves to mourn his mother, siblings and three daughters.last_img read more

Animal Plan IT

first_imgImitating animal technology is one of the hottest areas in science.  The engineering and information technology (IT) observable in living things continues to astonish scientists and makes engineers want to imitate nature’s designs.  Biomimetics is leading to productive, useful discoveries helping solve human problems and leading to a better life for all.  Here are some recent examples of how scientists are working to reverse-engineer technical feats on the Animal Plan Net:Underwater jet propulsion lab  Squid know how to maneuver in ways that are the envy of submarine operators.  That’s why researchers at U of Colorado are trying to imitate the “vortex ring” method of propulsion, according to Live Science.  “Vortex rings are formed when a burst of fluid shoots out of an opening, moving in one direction and spreading out as it curls back.”  If mastered, this technology might not only help underwater exploration subs, but permit the designing of microscopic craft that “guide tiny capsules with jet thrusters through the human digestive tract, enabling [doctors] to diagnose disease and dispense medications, the researchers said.”Skin so shiny:  The octopus and its relatives, cuttlefish and squid, have an unusual skin that is perfect for camouflage, reports News@Nature.  A group at Woods Hole, Massachusetts found a protein with “remarkable properties” that is responsible: it reflects light almost perfectly.  Roger Hanlon found that the bottom layer of octopus skin is made up of cells called leucophores “composed of a translucent, colourless, reflecting protein” that has such perfect broadband reflection, “they reflect all wavelengths of light that hit at any angle.”    Cuttlefish have an additional trick.  Their leucophores are covered by flat platelets called iridophores that enhance “the brightness of the whiteness,” Hanlon said, adding, “These are very complex 3-D cells.”  The protein involved is appropriately named reflectin.    Reporter Katherine Sanderson explained how this knowledge can help humans.  “The molecules that make octopus skin so successful as a dynamic camouflage could provide materials scientists with a new way to make super-reflective materials.”  Such knowledge would be of interest to law enforcement and the military.  Not only would this protect those working at night; some day, a Halloween costume made of cuttlefish skin could look pretty scary.Too cool watercraft  Jet skis are going to seem like kid stuff when “Dolphin watercraft” become popular.  Look at the picture on CNet News.  The high-performance, submersible Dolphin can leap above the waves and do barrel rolls, just like a dolphin.  Are these for real?  Believe it or not; Innespace Productions has a website and picture gallery.    The boats really do look like dolphins and come in one-person and two-person versions.  Designers Dan Innes and Rob Piazza explain the principle: “These positively buoyant vessels use their forward momentum and the downward lift of their wings to literally fly below the water’s surface.  This radical departure from the typical method of sinking below the surface allows the Dolphins to achieve an unparalleled level of freestyle performance.”    As a result of their mimicry wizardry, their “fully functional show ready watercraft” is able to “perform sustained dives, huge jumps, barrel rolls, and many other amazing acrobatic tricks.”  After their upcoming 2007 Dolphin demonstration tour, everybody will want one.  Will this be the next competitive sport?  Maybe someday Sea World will have live dolphins and their trainers in Dolphin watercraft competing side by side for audience applause.  (If the inventors can get theirs to eat fish and reproduce, then they’ll really be onto something.)Bug in a fix:  Microbes may not be animals per se, but they also have technical secrets to teach us big animals.  A deep-sea microbe at a scorching hot vent figured out how to fix nitrogen at a record temperature, 92°C, reported Science Daily and News@Nature.  Though both articles speculated on how this new form of nitrogen fixation might have evolved, the feat has chemists interested in learning “to better mimic the process for industrial use.”  Current artificial methods of fixing nitrogen to produce fertilizer are costly and inefficient compared to the way microbes do it.  News@Nature quoted a French scientist saying, “Given the importance of nitrogen fixation in global agriculture and the creative exploitation of novel organisms by the biotechnology industry, a heat-stable nitrogenase is likely to find a useful industrial application.”Robo-flagellum:  Live Science reported that somebody is already trying to mimic the bacterial flagellum.  An Australian inventor has achieved higher rpm with less twisting force by imitating the way bacteria swim.  Some day, his tiny inventions may be able to swim through your blood vessels, hopefully for beneficial ends: “Ultimately, tiny microrobots would give surgeons the ability to avoid traumatic and risky procedures in some cases,” Bill Christensen reported.  “A remotely-controlled microrobot would extend a physician’s ability to diagnose and treat patients in a minimally invasive way.”  Imagine surgery without scalpels and anesthesia.  Could we see a day where you get surgery at an outpatient clinic, and watch a microbot in real time on a monitor screen as it swims on command inside you to the problem area with a load of medicine?  It tickles just thinking about it.Question: would a lab technician be able to tell which entity running under flagellum power in a human bloodstream was intelligently designed, and which one evolved by chance over millions of years?If so, fire him for incompetence.  Even a real dolphin could tell that a high-performance watercraft had to be intelligently designed.  Don’t even ask the inventors unless you want to get slugged.  The Dolphin boat didn’t just “emerge” by chance in their machine shop.  They made it on porpoise.    There’s a revolution going on that is positive, exciting, stimulating, promising, and beneficial to all: the imitation of nature’s designs.  The projects listed above have no use for evolutionary theory.  They were stimulated by good old-fashioned curiosity and careful observation.  It’s time for the Darwinists to step aside with their useless speculations and distasteful arrogance, and let science get back to its roots: understanding how things work and using them for the benefit of mankind.  The researchers and inventors mentioned above are not going to work better or harder by being told Tinker Bell fairy tales about how these things ”evolved” or “emerged” without a design or plan.    If the Darwin cultists want to preach their dogma, we have freedom of religion in this country.  Let them build their own temples and offer sacrifices to their Charlie idols and see if anybody cares. (Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Dr Benn builds a clinic without walls

first_imgDr Carol Benn is the leader, but she praises her team for the success of the HJ Breast Clinic. Sulaiman PhilipPink has never seemed as soothing as it does on the walls of the HJ Breast Cancer Clinic at Helen Joseph Hospital in Johannesburg. The colour warms up the windowless warren of consulting, counselling and treatment rooms.Warming the sterile environment even more is clinic head Dr Carol Benn. She is a dervish of energy and conversation, stopping to check on patients waiting for treatment, leaving smiles in her wake.Most are black, some are white. The little girl of one patient is falling asleep on a chair next to her mother. All are sitting straight-backed on plastic chairs. One has dressed up, reminding the world she is a sensual, vital woman. Another is wrapped tightly in starch-stiff traditional dress. Some are mothers, other grandmothers. One looks just old enough to have finished high school and another has the weary look of someone who has lived a long and difficult life. They are all women who look to Benn and her staff to make them and their lives better.The team at the HJ Breast Clinic has created a welcoming, healing space for women. Their success is just another step towards creating what the doctor calls a “clinic without walls”, a health system that treats its patients as whole beings and not just a collection of diseased organs. The HJ Breast Clinic survives on the generosity of former patients and corporates. One of whom donated the pink paint to brighten up the clinic (Image credit: Shout-Africa).Dressed in surgical scrubs, bag slung over a shoulder, a bottle of something green cradled in her arms, Benn starts talking. “I had a patient tell me she had to stop chemo because she could not be a wife to her husband. She chose death for her husband; is that what men should be demanding from the women in their lives?”Her clinic without walls is a place where a multitude of medical and social disciplines look at the whole of the patient during treatment. She is pushing to move away from the small pond kind of medicine that has been standard, especially in the public health system, where the social challenges patients face have a bigger effect on treatment outcomes.“Nobody dies from a cancer in the breast; it’s the damage that the disease does elsewhere. With a multidisciplinary team we can ensure that a woman, for example, one day post-op does not have to take a taxi home and she must not be discharged before a social worker or counsellor sees her.”At the breast clinic, Benn oversees a group of passionate doctors, nurses and administrative staff who care for each patient from her first visit onwards. They work tirelessly to promote safe and healthy lifestyles for the 200 women a day who visit the clinic.“We love what we do. If we were not passionate about helping to create better lives for South African women we would need to evaluate how we spend our days.”The clinic is a centre built on the free access to information, awareness and treatment. Despite the challenges, Benn is recreating a system she uses in her private practice to provide the best care for her patients, many of whom lack the information or the resources that can stop their treatable disease from being a death sentence.“This is the kitchen of the house, where we come together as family,” she begins. Her home analogy builds as she talks of the women who seek treatment as kin. “It would feel like I was kicking someone out of the nest if we could not offer this other help. Our work is not just about operating; it’s also about health awareness and taking away the stigma.“We need to get education out to everyone. We need to get health awareness into our young girls about condoms, safe sex, about gynae and breast exams. If, by the time the girl is out of school or university, you have instilled that in her, she will encourage her mom, sister and family to go for check-ups.”One line for penises and one for breasts is the way Benn remembers the first breast clinic she was asked to set up in Soweto’s Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in 1997. Her clinic was a desk in the urology department, where she treated about two patients a week. The numbers, she says, were down to a lack of information about and awareness of breast cancer.Instead of welcoming her light work load, Benn started pushing back against the lack of awareness because, as she explains, she was tired of “looking into the sad faces of women who would line up for emergency breast cancer operations”. Her biggest success then was to re-introduce breast reconstruction into South African operating rooms, especially in the public health system.“Doctors would tell patients it was their breasts or their lives and they would not do immediate reconstructions.” Now she counsels patients that it is their body and they need to be fully informed and take part in decisions about their treatment.And she is off again, her voice raising as she warms to the point she is making. Benn, a patron of the newly formed Medical Women’s Association of South Africa (MWASA), hopes that people will learn to give back instead of asking what is being done for them. At the MWASA founding congress, she heard a story from an internist about a woman who would seek treatment after being abused by her partner, but could not leave him. She had nowhere to go to escape her tormentor; her escape came when he killed her.“Where is the community hall named after her? Why is there no shelter for women in her community, a place where meals and a bed are available? With security. How much could that cost?”Benn comes to a pause in a consulting room, overstuffed couches and framed portraits add touches of comfort and home. In rest she is just as excitable. Not a collage, but gilt framed portraits of women who have conquered breast cancer line the walls. There are celebrities – Lillian Dube, women young and old, all heroes to her. “Here, look at this woman. She beat breast cancer. Came back to the hospital and donated blankets. She felt a need to give back; we need more people like her.”When she asks “what are you doing to make your community better” it is heavy with substance. Victims of domestic abuse who cross her path, many too scared to leave or without a place to flee too, have her phone number and are welcome in her home till they find a safe place.Choosing to work at Helen Joseph is one way that Benn makes a difference in her world. She wonders aloud how quickly the public health system would improve if other doctors did as she does. “We make a real difference in women’s lives. Can you imagine if other doctors volunteered? We could change health care for the better.”last_img read more
