Pilot study to probe cardiac effects of smallpox vaccine

first_img In the news release, Sherry said it has been estimated that up to 1 in 2,000 smallpox vaccinees has complained of chest pain, shortness of breath, and related symptoms. But the number of people who had a viral infection of the heart after vaccination without any symptoms could be much higher, she said. The general aim of the study is to begin investigating why smallpox vaccination appears to trigger myopericarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle and lining) in a tiny fraction of recipients, according to a news release from the North Carolina State University School of Veterinary Medicine. People who have myocarditis can later experience dilated cardiomyopathy, which can cause severe heart failure, Sherry said. However, whether myocarditis associated with smallpox vaccine can lead to this condition is unknown, she said. In addition, the researchers will inject mice with the viruses and then monitor them for cardiac damage and to determine whether the mice can serve as an animal model for future studies, Sherry said. “If we find interesting results, then we would consider submitting a more in-depth proposal to better address how the vaccine might be altered to improve it,” she added. Jun 16, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – In an effort to shed some light on a potential side effect of smallpox vaccination, researchers are launching a federally funded pilot study of the effects of smallpox vaccines on cardiac cells in mice. See also: The study will focus on the effects of three different poxviruses on cardiac cells in mice, Sherry told CIDRAP News in an e-mail message. Two of the viruses are vaccinia, used in the standard smallpox vaccine, Dryvax, and a weakened form of vaccinia, which is used in the modified vaccinia Ankara (MVA) vaccine. The other virus is a virulent cowpox virus, which does not cause smallpox but is not weakened. Mouse heart cell cultures will be infected with the viruses, and the effects on two types of heart cells will be compared with the effects on more generic mouse cells, Sherry reported. The cell cultures also will be monitored for viral replication and virus-induced cell death.center_img North Carolina State University news releasehttp://www.ncsu.edu/news/press_releases/04_06/194.htm CDC report on adverse events in civilians who received smallpox shots in 2003http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5305a4.htm “We will also determine whether these viruses cause cells to release different cytokines (cell factors involved in protection against viral infection), and whether differences in virus-induced damage to the cells reflect differences in release of these cytokines (either differences between the viruses, or differences between the responding cells),” Sherry stated. Among more than 39,000 civilian health workers who received smallpox shots in 2003, there were 16 suspected and 5 probable cases of myopericarditis after vaccination, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, 75 cases of myopericarditis occurred among 623,244 military personnel who received smallpox shots between December 2002 and May 10, 2004, according to the Department of Defense. North Carolina State officials said the National Institutes of Health awarded a 2-year, $500,000 grant for the research. Dr. Barbara Sherry, a professor of virology in the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine, is conducting the study in collaboration with Dr. David Pickup, a Duke University expert on smallpox vaccines.

What is a Soulmate, Really?.

first_img Sharing is caring! 54 Views   no discussions Share By Johanna Lyman, Romance Recovery for GalTime.comAhh, soulmates.  We’ve all been fed the romantic notion that there’s one perfect someone out there for us.  Everyone has one perfect soulmate, and if we’re lucky, we’ll find each other and live happily ever after.  The stars will align for us:  we’ll be born at the same time (give or take a few or twenty years) and after living our lives a little, we’ll magically end up in the same part of the world at exactly the right time to fall head over heels in love.  We’ll know instantly when we meet.  Bells will ring, cupids will dance around our heads, and we’ll have stars in our eyes.  You’ve seen the cartoon and movie versions, I’m sure.I have good news and bad news for you.  The bad news is that it doesn’t work like that most of the time and when it does, it doesn’t always have a happy ending.  The good news is that even when things end badly, we can still make our own happy ending.  The other good news is that there’s more than one soulmate for each of us.  To understand this, you’ll need a better understanding of what a soulmate really is.Soulmates are individuals who incarnate together for the purpose of growing in love.  They make agreements with each other to help teach the life lessons each wants to learn.  Then they incarnate at more or less the same time as a soul family.  The members of a soul family are soulmates.  Soulmates are kindred spirits, but they are not necessarily romantic partners.  Your best friend is a soulmate, and one or, sometimes, both of your parents are soulmates.  Anyone with whom you’ve been in a significant romantic relationship is a soulmate. When I say significant romantic relationship, I mean one that has impacted you on a deeply emotional level.  Soulmates give you a chance to see yourself more clearly.  Any significant relationship that teaches you something about yourself is a relationship with a soulmate. It doesn’t have to be a long term relationship.  It doesn’t even have to be a relationship that had a positive outcome.  Some of our soulmates agree to act as the villain in our life to help us learn something important about ourselves.  For example, a partner who cheated on you may not seem like a soulmate, but if that experience helps you grow in self-respect, then that person has given you a gift.  You may not appreciate the wrapping, but once you’re on the other side of the experience, you will appreciate the gift.We all come into the world as perfect, radiant beings.  We deeply trust that we will be loved and cared for.  We look at the world with eyes of unconditional love and we expect that love to be reflected back to us.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t work out like that.  At some point in our young lives, we discover that our needs will not always be met.  We cry and are left unattended.  We’re hungry and we don’t get fed right away.  We have a dirty diaper and are left to sit in it.  As we grow, we fall down and hurt ourselves.  We misbehave and a parent takes away our favorite toy.  We eat crayons and get yelled at.  We throw food and get a smack on the hand.  Each experience creates an impression in the psyche.Even if your childhood was idyllic, you were still wounded.  No matter how wonderful your parents were, there were times when you felt alone, abandoned and unloved as an infant or young child.  A seemingly simple thing like being left to cry in a playpen for a few minutes can create a lasting impact on the psyche.  Even if your parents were wonderful, loving beings, you may have had a teacher or a babysitter who gave you a message that led you to hide your light.    It is a normal, natural part of the process of being human.I believe that we come into the world to play a game.  The game is to hide our light and try to find it again; a game of Cosmic Hide and Seek.  Our soulmates are the other players in the game.  We are all divine beings, pretending to be mere mortals.  We have veils, called maya (illusion) in Sanskrit, that make us forget that we are powerful co-creators of our reality and that we each have a spark of the Divine within.  We choose our parents for the ways they will help us forget that our true nature is unconditional love, and then we spend most, if not all, of our adult lives trying to find our way back to that unconditional love.All the reasons we look for and attract a romantic partner come down to one thing:  we have been wounded as small children and our soul, our heart, deeply desires to be whole again.  It’s always looking for those missing pieces to put back into the puzzle that is you. It’s also always looking for a “do-over”; a way to replay the times your parents wounded you and heal from them by creating a more loving outcome.  Our romantic partners and other members of our soul family agree to help us put the pieces back together.Do you believe in soulmates?

Iwobi’s Everton step up for EPL duel against Palace

first_imgEverton have stepped up preparations for Saturday’s Premier League match at home to Crystal Palace with another intensive training session at USM Finch Farm. Everton, from being in the relegation zone two months ago, are now talking about the prospect of Europe. Win against Crystal Palace and they will move within one point of fifth! Palace meanwhile are the Premier League’s lowest scorers and are six games without a win. They have a slight cushion to the bottom three currently but slide any lower and nerves will be increasingly growing. Everton midfielder Fabian Delph must serve a one-match ban as a consequence of his sending off against Watford last weekend. Andre Gomes could return later this month after recovering swiftly from a serious ankle injury. Crystal Palace loanee Cenk Tosun, who missed the last game because of a hamstring problem, is ineligible to face his parent club while Mamadou Sakho and Jeffrey Schlupp are long-term absentees. The Palace future of Roy Hodgson, out of contract in the summer with an extension yet to be finalised, remains a big talking point. Almost as much as the club’s failure to add recruits in the January transfer window, a shortcoming that has left Hodgson cutting a frustrated figure. “I think we know, as a football club, that we need to make more inroads into improving our squad and rejuvenating our squad and bringing in some fresh faces, because an awful lot of faces that I still work with every day were here when I came to the club and I have inherited them.” Read Also:Everton move has made me a better player – Iwobi “There is no panic, only calmness, assessing the situation, taking it in his stride and looking forward to getting back to work the next day.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Loading… Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks11 Strange Facts About Your Favorite TV ShowsCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By Odeith8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth8 Scenes That Prove TV Has Gone Too FarThese Are The Best Stargazing Locations You Can Find On EarthWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?A Runner Uses Strava App To Create Amazing Pieces Of Running ArtEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

Tigers close in on Jelavic

first_imgHull City were completing formalities for the record signing of Nikica Jelavic from Everton on Tuesday night – hours after owner Assem Allam threatened to quit the club over his controversial application to change its name. Press Association Despite his evident willingness to boost his club’s Barclays Premier League survival bid, Allam chose Tuesday to once again reiterate his hard-line stance over his bid to change the club’s name to Hull Tigers. Allam warned he will be gone “within 24 hours” if his move does not receive widespread backing, telling Sky Sports News: “No-one on earth is allowed to question my business decisions. “I won’t allow it. I can give you my CV to give you comfort, for what I do in business, what I have achieved, but for someone to come and question me is not allowed. “I’m here to save the club and manage the club for the benefit of the community. It will never, never be the other way round – that the community manage it for me. “But if the community say go away, I promise to go away within 24 hours.” Allam added that the same applied should his move to have the club’s name changed be rejected by the FA. He said: “Still the same thing. It’s a free country. No two ways about it. Have I ever said something and went back on it? No.” Allam has clashed with supporters over the plans and caused controversy in November when he reacted angrily to lobbying from campaign group City Till We Die by retorting: “They can die as soon as they want.” But Hull fans will have been placated by the imminent deal for Jelavic, who was allowed to leave Goodison Park by Toffees boss Roberto Martinez in order to pursue his World Cup ambitions with Croatia. ”He (Jelavic) will sign today – our biggest ever signing,” Allam said. “The club is moving forward. We are paying a lot of money for first-class players.” Jelavic had fallen out of the first-team picture following the summer loan signing of Romelu Lukaku but still proved he has an eye for goal when he scored two goals in the 4-0 FA Cup win over QPR earlier this month. Jelavic made a stunning start to his Everton career after joining for £5.5million from Rangers in January 2012, scoring the winner on his full debut against Tottenham and going on to hit 11 goals in 16 games before the end of the season. But he struggled to maintain his momentum during the following campaign and has found his first-team chances increasingly restricted. Meanwhile, Hull’s move for Long appeared harder to finalise with the Baggies clearly unwilling to let the Republic of Ireland international leave unless it is for the right price. Long had been on the verge of joining the Tigers in September before a last-minute hitch in negotiations kept him at The Hawthorns, and the player reiterated this week that he is in no hurry to leave. Long told the Birmingham Mail: “I have always said I’m happy and settled here and I’ve got family who like living in the area. “I suppose if a club doesn’t want you, what’s the point in staying? “It’s business at the end of the day and we’ve got a lot of options up front. If they do want me to go we’ll deal with that hurdle when it comes, or if it comes. But at the moment I’m a West Brom player and that’s all I’m concentrating on.” The deal for Jelavic is believed to be worth £6.5million with a further £1million due if the Tigers avoid relegation, eclipsing the club’s previous biggest outlay of £5.25million for Tottenham’s Tom Huddlestone last year. And there could be more to follow with the Tigers also pursuing long-term transfer target Shane Long – although Press Association Sport understands West Brom have rejected the latest bid to lure him from The Hawthorns. last_img read more

Terry thinking beyond next season

first_img The 34-year-old’s existing deal was set to expire at the end of this season and the new contract is in line with Chelsea’s policy of offering those over the age of 30 only one-year deals. Terry hopes to stay at Chelsea for some time to come. Terry told Chelsea TV: “It’s been a great couple of years for me. My form has been good and I’ve earned the contract, so I’m delighted to stay for another year. And hopefully there could be a few more years after this.” The central defender, who has retired from England duty, lifted the Capital One Cup with Chelsea on March 1 – his 13th major honour with the Blues – and hopes to add the Premier League title. Chelsea entered the international break with a six-point advantage over nearest rivals Manchester City and with a game in hand. “Hopefully there’s many more (trophies),” Terry added. “That’s a massive part of why I’m staying. I want to win trophies. I want to remain in the side, of course, and for me to get to 14 (trophies), 15, that’s my target. “We’re very close at the moment. We still need to get over the line. It’s going to be tough. The Hull game (a 3-2 win last weekend) showed how tough it’s going to be. Press Association Terry on Thursday signed a one-year extension to his deal, committing to the Premier League leaders until the end of the 2015-16 season. The Blues announced the skipper’s new contract three weeks after manager Jose Mourinho guaranteed Terry would be at Chelsea next term. “To get that big one at the end of the season would be fantastic. Then we can regroup and go again next year. I’m delighted to be here and hopefully there’s going to be many more.” Terry has made 661 appearances for the Blues, scoring 63 goals and winning the Champions League, Europa League, three Premier League titles and five FA Cups. Asked if he could close in on Ron Harris’ club record of 795 appearances, Terry added: “I didn’t think it was possible. I’m not sure now. It’s still a long way. “Lamps (Frank Lampard) is not here any more. It’s down to me to hopefully stay fit, stay in the team and hopefully there will be more contracts to enable me to get closer.” Terry appeared to be being phased out at Chelsea under Mourinho’s predecessor, Rafael Benitez, with injuries contributing to a lack of match action. Lampard and Ashley Cole left after lengthy stays at Stamford Bridge at the end of last season, but Terry was given a new contract less than 48 hours after the close of Mourinho’s first term back at Chelsea. The former England captain, who graduated from Chelsea’s academy and made his first-team debut in 1998, has been rejuvenated by the return of the Portuguese, who says the deal has been earned on merit. Mourinho said: “This new contract is not to say ‘thank you very much’; it is because John continues to perform. He is a top defender. “I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.” Terry is a great survivor; the new deal will take him into his 20th season with Chelsea. “It’s a dream for me. I always set targets and still do so now. To be where I am and I look back, I’ve come a long way,” he added. “We’ve seen so many players come and go over the years, but to be a mainstay and keep my place and stay fit and my form great as well has been key to that. “Having that main core of world-class players who have won and wanted to win on a daily basis, which the manager brings every day to this football club. That’s one of the main reasons why we’re still succeeding.” Terry attributed his longevity to “hunger, hard work, wanting to win” and said Mourinho has had a key role in his desire. “The honesty that he had with me when he first took over, basically: ‘play well and stay in the team. If not there will be other players that will come in and step in’,” Terry added. “He just demands that from everyone on a daily basis. You never know if you’re in his good books or if you’re in his bad books. “He’s certainly the best I’ve worked with. Delighted to have him back. “He’s doing everything right at the moment. We’re top of the league and everyone’s hungry. “It’s difficult because we’ve got a big squad of players so to keep everyone happy is a tough job, but he manages to do it.” John Terry wants to win more trophies and more contracts with Chelsea after extending his stay at Stamford Bridge. last_img read more

CAVE HILL, Barbados, (CMC) – Jamaica Scorpions hauled themselves back into contention for a semi-final spot in the Regional Super50 after whipping winless ICC Americas by 67 runs, in a rain-hit contest here yesterday.In a game reduced to 46 overs per side because of rain, Scorpions overcame a shaky start to rally to 251 for five at 3Ws Oval with Johnson Campbell (66), Andre McCarthy (63) and Rovman Powell (52) all hitting half-centuries.Left-arm spinner Saad bin Zafar was the best bowler with two for 35.Set a revised target of 254, Bermudian opener Kamau Leverock struck a breezy top score of 75 but ICC Americas slumped from 130 for three in the 27th over, to 187 all out off 44.3 overs.Alex Amsterdam (20) was the only other batsman to show any resistance as the development side lost their last seven wickets for 57 runs in quick time.The main architect of their demise was leg-spinner Damion Jacobs who snatched five for 24 – his second five-wicket haul in 50-overs cricket.Entering the contest with two defeats in three outings, Scorpions wobbled up front as they slipped to 53 for three in the 15th over.Chadwick Walton fell for 14 to a catch at the wicket off bin Zafar at 29 for one and in the next over without a run added, other opener Steven Taylor perished for seven to off-spinner Nitish Kumar.When bin Zafar had Test batsman Jermaine Blackwood stumped for nine, Scorpions found themselves in danger of collapse.However, McCarthy and Devon Thomas, who made 28, started the revival by posting 69 for the fourth wicket before Campbell and the enterprising Powell added 101 in an unbroken sixth wicket stand.McCarthy hit five hours in a steady 86-ball knock while Thomas notched a four and a six off 47 deliveries.Both fell in the space of 24 balls paving the way for Campbell and Powell to re-energise the innings in a partnership which required just 61 deliveries.Left-hander Campbell faced just 64 balls and struck five fours and three sixes while Powell hit one four and four sixes in an up tempo 38-ball innings.ICC Americas then prospered principally because of three partnerships which revolved around left-hander Leverock who faced 83 balls and counted seven fours and two sixes.He put on 35 off 38 balls for the first wicket with Fahad Babar (5), 48 for the third wicket with Srimantha Wijeyeratne (19) and a further 33 for the fourth wicket with Amsterdam.Leverock’s demise, caught at the wicket off Jacobs in the 28th over, signalled the end of all resistance for ICC Americas.last_img read more

Football News Qatar organisers plan to privately resist FIFA’s attempts to expand 2022 World Cup

first_img Qatar: Concerned by political and logistical impediments, Qatar World Cup organisers are planning to privately resist FIFA’s attempts to expand the 2022 World Cup to 48 teams and spread games across the Persian Gulf, a person with knowledge of the talks told The Associated Press. FIFA President Gianni Infantino was given the backing of the governing body’s ruling council on Friday to pursue his mission to enlarge the 2022 tournament from 32 to 48 teams, requiring at least two more stadiums in at least one additional country.FIFA and Qatar have until June to come up with a joint proposal to present to the Congress of soccer nations, but the concept is mired in complexities stemming from the blockade of Doha by neighbors, tension highlighted in a report considered by the council Friday. During this next phase of the consultation process, Doha-based World Cup organizers plan to highlight insurmountable issues involved in adding more venues outside of Qatar and hope the concept collapses, a person with knowledge of the talks told the AP. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because public statements on this topic were not authorized.While the Doha officials involved in the World Cup want to keep it as a purely Qatari event, FIFA is also negotiating on a political level ? making direct contact with the country’s emir, who hasn’t publicly discussed the sharing concept. Qatar is working to complete eight stadiums for a 64-match schedule. The tournament was moved from its usual June/July dates to Nov. 21 through Dec. 18 because of the fierce summer ahead and shortened to 28 days because of the interruption it causes to the European club season. Adding 16 additional teams and 16 more games necessitate more venues. The United Arab Emirates has two stadiums with capacities over 40,000, but FIFA accepts the UAE along with Bahrain and Saudi Arabia cannot be considered unless they restore the diplomatic, economic and travel ties with Qatar that were severed two years ago. Kuwait and Oman have remained neutral in the dispute and would be options politically, but their stadium infrastructure is lacking.Kuwait City’s Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium has 60,000 seats but Sabah Al-Salem Stadium only 26,000. The venue in Oman identified in a FIFA study seen by the AP is the 34,000-capacity Boshar-Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.”We are in the lucky situation that I can speak to anyone in the Gulf region and talk just about football,” Infantino said.”I don’t even want to say that football might help to build some bridges or to bring people together or this kind of things.I just think that it’s important for the whole region in the Gulf that the World Cup 2022 in Qatar will be a success. It is important for a region which today, unfortunately, is the headlines more for negative than for positive reasons.”The Gulf crisis stems from Qatar’s support for extremist groups in the region, charges denied by Doha.The boycotting nations also have pointed to Qatar’s close relationship with Iran.”I think if football can contribute to open up some doors and to make people meet and discuss with each other,” Infantino said, “we will not solve all the problems of the world but maybe we’ll get a little step closer in at least starting to understand each other a bit.”After coming under pressure from human rights groups since winning FIFA’s hosting rights vote in 2010, Qatar was forced to improve worker rights and improve labor conditions. FIFA has told potential new co-hosts they have to provide human rights guarantees, which have yet to be specified publicly. FIFA Vice President Greg Clarke of England raised the issue in Friday’s council meeting.Qatar World Cup organizers said in a statement they remain “open to the process of discussing a potential expansion” but stressed they are pressing ahead with planning for only a 32-team tournament.”It has always been our mission to ensure that this World Cup belongs to the entire Arab World and the Middle East,” the organisers said.”We will work with FIFA to determine whether or not a viable operating model does exist and, importantly, whether it is in the best interests for football and for the tournament, and for Qatar as the host nation. After these consultations, the final decision will be made by Qatar and FIFA.”FIFA decided in January 2017 that the World Cup will be 48 teams, but only starting in 2026 before the hosts were chosen. The United States, Canada, and Mexico won a vote last year. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Bayern take fifth straight Bundesliga crown

first_imgBy Karolos GrohmannBERLIN,(Reuters)-Bayern Munich celebrated their record-extending fifth consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday after crushing VfL Wolfsburg 6-0 to open up an unassailable 10-point lead over second-placed RB Leipzig with three matches remaining.The Bavarians, who have now won 27 German championships, are on 73 points with Leipzig on 63 after they were held to a goalless draw by Ingolstadt earlier in the day.“It is amazing what this team did again this season in the Bundesliga,” said retiring Bayern captain Philipp Lahm. “It is not a given that we will always march through the league like we did this season.”Bundesliga leading scorer Robert Lewandowski netted twice to take his league goal tally to 28 and David Alaba, Thomas Mueller, Arjen Robben and Joshua Kimmich were also on target as Bayern rode roughshod over the hosts.The Bavarians had promised to bounce back following their mid-week German Cup semi-final defeat to Borussia Dortmund and last week’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid.They had also failed to win either of their last two league matches, going five games without a win in all competitions as their potential treble-winning season turned into a one-title affair.“I am extremely happy and we deserved the victory,” said coach Carlo Ancelotti. “It was an amazing experience and I want to thank the fans and the club. Now is the time to celebrate.”There was no self-doubt within Ancelotti’s team on Saturday as they scored three times before halftime, knowing Leipzig had failed to win their match.Bayern finished off the relegation-threatened Wolves with three more goals in the second half, when the hosts were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of former Bayern player Luiz Gustavo.“The league is the most honest of titles,” said Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “And now we have won it for the fifth straight time. That is something unusual and amazing.“We will have a good party tonight and then on the last matchday with the fans. I played 10 years at Bayern and won two league titles. Now we have done it five times in a row. Outstanding.”Borussia Dortmund remained in third place on 57 points following their goalless draw against Cologne. Hoffenheim, two points behind in fourth, can move back into the top three with victory over Eintracht Frankfurt today.Bottom club Darmstadt 98 beat Freiburg 3-0 to earn their third straight win and give themselves yet another lifeline as they are eight points below the relegation playoff spot.Werder Bremen made it nine wins in their last 11 games with a 2-0 win over European rivals Hertha Berlin to move into sixth place, a point behind their opponents.last_img read more

Syracuse to assess future of kiss cam

first_img Published on September 21, 2015 at 6:41 pm Contact Connor: cgrossma@syr.edu | @connorgrossman The kiss cam segment on the Carrier Dome scoreboard did not make its usual appearance during the Syracuse-Central Michigan game on Saturday following a letter to the editor sent to Syracuse.com on Friday.Syracuse Athletics confirmed that the university is “taking time” to assess the concerns presented in the letter to Syracuse.com, and offered no timetable for the kiss cam’s return.The author of the letter said they attended the SU-Wake Forest matchup on Sept. 12, and highlighted two separate instances in which two people who were “clearly” not a couple were pressured by fellow fans to kiss while the video board featured them. In both instances the author says the female participant visibly shook her head before kissing.“The instances I witnessed at the game encourage and condone sexual assault and a sense of male entitlement, at best,” the author said in the letter to Syracuse.com. “And they are an actual instance of assault, at worst.” Comments AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Fiammetta: Iowa defeat reveals danger of relying on 3-pointers

first_imgIn a word, Wednesday night’s trip to Iowa City was a fiasco for Wisconsin.Yes, the atmosphere in Carver-Hawkeye Arena last night was raucous and disruptive – it must’ve been, given how the free pizza and bobbleheads for fans prompted a court-rushing following Iowa’s second win of the season against Wisconsin. The Badgers even shot above 50 percent from the field. Rob Wilson continued his steady string of solid games with limited playing time, and he played even more than usual (17 minutes). Ben Brust contributed 10 points as he continues to pull himself out of a shooting slump, as did Josh Gasser with 14.Ryan Evans also extended his string of double-digit scoring outings (now at seven), and suddenly, what’s there to complain about?Ah yes, the final score. And the fact that this Badgers team, which continues to define itself by its love for the 3-pointer, couldn’t keep pace with a Hawkeyes team lying at 7-8 in Big Ten play. No doubt, Iowa benefited from playing on its home court in shooting 48 percent from the field and 55.6 percent from behind the arc. The great majority of that was senior guard Matt Gatens, who scored 33 points on 12-for-18 shooting (7-for-10 from 3-point).The Badgers, for all the positives they set forth Wednesday night, hit only six of their 16 3-point attempts (37.5 percent). And of course, that once again limited their free throw attempts, which were sorely needed in the wake of a nine-point halftime deficit and an offense that might’ve been efficient, but not very timely.UW reached the foul line only three times, and Evans took all three. He made two, and the Badgers were simply unable to keep pace with the hot-shooting Hawkeyes.For a team that shoots 73.3 percent from the free throw line – third in the conference and 47th in the nation – Wisconsin is remarkably stubborn when it comes to actually getting there.That statistic begs the question: Why in the world is that the case?According to Phil Mitten, a Madisonian since his elementary school days and a UW basketball blogger for the past five years – including the last three for Buckys5thQuarter.com, widely considered one of the top Badger sports blogs – the answer may be due to some sort of lingering historical perspective.“You used to have guys like [Alando] Tucker to get in the lane,” Mitten said in a phone conversation, referring to the former Badger and four-year NBA pro who led UW to the 2005 Elite Eight. “If you go back and look at the statistics, he probably helped skew our expectations for what a Bo Ryan-coached team would do in a normal year just because he was so far and away the foul generator on those teams.”Mitten’s comments allude to the unique makeup of Ryan’s teams. On offense, the Badgers employ the swing philosophy, involving crisp passing along the perimeter and frequent off-ball movement. The principal notion is to create the best possible shot through ball movement, rather than by dribble drives to the basket.To necessitate moving the ball around, post players often need to move further from the hoop, where they’re naturally most comfortable. Consequently, a Bo Ryan “big man” often has superior agility and ball skills, as he must be able to move around the court and handle the ball far from the basket. He also typically reaches the free throw line fewer times than the normal “big man” – this year, point guard Jordan Taylor leads the team in free throw attempts (130) by a wide margin and shooting guard Josh Gasser is third (64). For the season, the Badgers have attempted 439 free throws, ranking them 10th in the Big Ten and 319th in the nation.“Well, I think we always want to get to the free throw line if we can,” assistant coach Gary Close said. “If the defense is just going to sag all the way around the basket and give you open shots, then you’re going to have to make some to make them come out and create lanes to drive. But we’ve always wanted to be not only a balanced team inside and out, but also a balanced team with a lot of guys scoring. When we are, we’re a little more effective.”Recently, players like Jon Leuer (a 2011 second-round pick of the Milwaukee Bucks), Keaton Nankivil (currently playing in Germany) and Brian Butch (had a brief tenure with the Denver Nuggets) have filled that role of perimeter-friendly big man for Ryan, adding impressive shooting touches from the perimeter that have made the 3-pointer an increasingly more significant part of the offense.This season, Wisconsin lies fourth in the Big Ten with a 9-6 record in conference play. Always a strong defensive team under Ryan, the Badgers allow just 51.7 points per game, fewest in the nation. UW also ranks sixth in the nation and second in the Big Ten in opposing field goal percentage at 37.7 percent.Thus, it’s been Wisconsin’s offense that’s prevented the team from seizing a top spot this year in the 12-team conference. The Badgers rank 10th in scoring offense (64.0 points per game) and eighth in shots attempted (52.8 per game), as well as 11th in field goal percentage (42.7 percent).The low number of shot attempts is typical of a swing offense like Ryan’s, again relying on patience to find the highest-percentage shot.But if a team also doesn’t shoot many free throws, where do its points come from? This is where the 3-point shooting comes into play, and many observers wonder if taking so many shots farther from the hoop really helps facilitate Wisconsin’s offense. This season, the Badgers have attempted 322 3-pointers in conference play, second-most in the Big Ten.“When you rely on the 3-point shot like they do here, you’re always going to stand the chance of either flaming out early or getting hot and going deep [in the NCAA tournament],” Mitten said. “They haven’t done the latter, so either they’re due, or it’s been amazing that they haven’t flamed out in the first round more often considering how much they rely on the 3-point shot.”Mike is a senior majoring in journalism.

Chelsea v Real Madrid

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho will come up against Real Madrid just two month after leaving the Spanish club as the two sides clash in the final of the International Champions Cup on Wednesday.The Portuguese tactician departed the Bernabeu in June to take up the manager’s position at Stamford Bridge for a second time, and will now confront his former employers in a highly anticipated pre-season friendly in the United States.Much of the pre-match hype has revolved around the recent comments made by Mourinho regarding compatriot and Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, where the boss claimed ‘there is only one Ronaldo,’ referring to the former Brazil international striker who Mourinho coached as an assistant during the pair’s time at Barcelona.That jibe now appears to have upped the stakes of what is scheduled as a friendly, leaving pride on the line in what promises to be a thrilling affair.New Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti will himself be looking to pull one over his old club, having worked at the Blues between 2009 and 2011, while he will also be hoping to continue their unbeaten run in pre-season ahead of his debut campaign with the Galacticos.last_img read more

As things stand, the fans are calling for the head of coach Kjell Jonevret,” a fan told Soccerladuma.co.za a few days ago.“About four to five coaches were appointed at Orlando Pirates in a period of three to four years. When one looks at that, one begins to think perhaps it’s not just the coaches but players need to be changed also. Changing the coaches is not doing the club any justice, because a new head coach will still have to deal with same players who are not willing to fight for the jersey, ” said SoL37.****BELOW, THE Orlando Pirates ‘Coach resigns’ statement on their website****Head Coach resignsPosted on Wednesday, August 02, 2017 – 12:09  Orlando Pirates Football Club Head Coach, Kjell Jonevret, has tendered his resignation.Mr Jonevret has thanked the Chairman of Orlando Pirates, Dr Irvin Khoza, the Club and its supporters for giving him an opportunity to coach the Club.Mr Jonevret said: “I would like to thank the Club for the opportunity.

Ravens RB Rice receives 2-game suspension from NFL

first_imgBaltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, left, hands off to running back Ray Rice during a training camp practice, Thursday, July 24, 2014, at the team’s practice facility in Owings Mills, Md. (AP Photo)OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice received a two-game suspension from the NFL on Thursday following his offseason arrest for domestic violence.Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.The six-year veteran was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer. The 27-year-old Rice has been accepted into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being expunged.Rice met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last month after joining the diversion program. Goodell ultimately decided to suspend the running back for two games without pay and fine him an additional game check “for conduct detrimental to the NFL in violation of the league’s Personal Conduct Policy.”Despite the court’s decision not to impose criminal punishment, “the Commissioner determined, as he advised Rice, that the conduct was incompatible with NFL policies and warranted disciplinary action.”In a letter to Rice, Goodell wrote:  “As you acknowledged during our meeting, your conduct was unquestionably inconsistent with league polices and the standard of behavior required of everyone who is part of the NFL. The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game. This is particularly true with respect to domestic violence and other forms of violence against women.”Rice’s suspension will begin on Aug. 30. He will be eligible for reinstatement Sept. 12 after the Pittsburgh game. Rice may participate in all aspects of training camp and preseason games.“It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season, but that’s my fault,” Rice said in a statement issued by the Ravens. “As I said earlier, I failed in many ways. But, Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents. I am better because of everything we have experienced since that night. The counseling has helped tremendously.”Rice is the team’s career leader in total scrimmage yards and ranks behind only Jamal Lewis in total yards rushing.Bernard Pierce is expected to start for Rice in Baltimore’s first two games.Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement: “We appreciate the thorough process the league office used to evaluate the incident with Ray Rice. The time the Commissioner spent with Ray and Janay is typical of the extra steps the NFL takes when making decisions regarding discipline issues. While not having Ray for the first two games is significant to our team, we respect the league’s decision and believe it is fair.”He added, “We also respect the efforts Ray has made to become the best partner and father he can be. That night was not typical of the Ray Rice we know and respect. We believe that he will not let that one night define who he is, and he is determined to make sure something like this never happens again.”Rice’s teammates were not stunned by the news of the suspension.“You knew something was going to happen,” wide receiver Torrey Smith said. “I’ll be glad when those two games are up.”Coach John Harbaugh said, “It’s part of the process. There are consequences when you make a mistake; we’ll move forward.”Rice participated Thursday in Baltimore’s first full-squad practice. Before that session began, the Ravens lost cornerback Aaron Ross for the season with a torn Achilles tendon, a mishap that occurred during his conditioning test.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

Guyana prisons, Police lock-ups life threatening – US report

first_imgGuyana has recently been flagged, in a human rights report prepared by the United States Department of State, over the conditions of its prison and lock-up facilities, which have been deemed “life threatening”. This is even as local authorities continue to grapple with issues regarding Guyana’s penal system.The 2017 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices compiled by the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor was released on Friday. It leads US’ efforts to promote democracy, protect human rights and international religious freedom, and advance labour rights globally.The Camp Street penitentiaryIn its profile on Guyana, the report cited that among the country’s most significant human rights issues are the “harsh and potentially life-threatening” prison conditions.However, it noted that Government officials do not enjoy impunity from human rights abuses, and there are independent and transparent procedures for handling allegations of abuse by security forces.Under the ‘Prison and Detention Center Conditions’, the state’s “Prison and jail conditions, particularly in police holding cells, were reportedly harsh and potentially life threatening due to gross overcrowding, physical abuse, and inadequate sanitary conditions and medical care”, the report outlined.It outlined that the Guyana Prison Service had reported back in September that there were 2,004 prisoners in five facilities with a combined design capacity of 1,179. As at July, a total of 1,018 prisoners were in Georgetown’s Camp Street Prison, a facility designed to hold only 550 inmates.“Overcrowding was in large part due to a backlog of pretrial detainees, who constituted approximately 30 percent of the total prison population.“In July, inmates at the Camp Street Prison were moved to Lusignan Prison after they rioted and started multiple fires that destroyed the prison. Prisoners reported unsanitary conditions and a lack of potable water. Prisoners also complained of lengthy confinement in their cells with limited opportunities for sunlight,” the report stated.It was recognised that while offenders 16 years and older were placed with the adult prison population, younger offenders were held in a juvenile correctional centre that offered primary education, vocational training, and basic medical care.The US report further highlighted that prisoners often circumvent procedures for submitting complaints of inhuman conditions or mistreatment by passing letters addressed to Government officials through family members. It added that authorities investigated and monitored prison and detention centre conditions, and committees prepared monthly reports on their visits.While Government has permitted outside groups to monitor prison conditions independently, there were no requests for such visits during last year.Further, the report went on to note that while authorities generally do not hold suspects in custody past the 72 hours’ detention period, except in capital offences and narcotics trafficking, they occasionally do not respect persons’ rights to “prompt access to a lawyer of their choice and to family members” which the law provides for criminal detainees.Another issue that the report highlighted was the long period of detention that defendants and accused face awaiting trial.“Lengthy pretrial detention remained a problem, due primarily to judicial inefficiency, staff shortages, and cumbersome legal procedures. The average length of pretrial detention was three years for those awaiting trial at a magistrate’s court or in the High Court. This was often beyond the maximum possible sentence for the crime for which they were charged.With regard to ‘Denial of Fair Public Trial’, the report found that “Delays and inefficiencies undermined judicial due process. Shortages of trained court personnel, postponements at the request of the defence or prosecution, occasional allegations of bribery, poor tracking of cases, and Police sluggishness in preparing cases for trial caused delays.”The report also revealed that there were allegations of mistreatment of inmates by prison officials, as well as claims that Police abused suspects and detainees.Under the ‘Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment’ sub-heading, the report cited the Winston Carlos Haynes case, a former soldier of the Guyana Defence Force, who was accused of raping a minor in March last year. Haynes was fired and prosecuted in a civilian court for the offence. He was committed to stand trial in the High Court, but is out on bail.Moreover, there were no reports that the Government or its agents committed arbitrary or unlawful killings. However, the report did mention the July 2017 fatal Police shooting of Charles Peters, a mentally ill man, whom they said was acting in a suspicious manner, and that he was killed as he reportedly attempted to escape custody. The August 2016 killing of Winston Hinds by Police was also mentioned. Police officials had claimed the measure was warranted within the circumstances, and no further action was taken, the report stated.last_img read more

Trackers weather the storm against Thunder

first_imgIt didn’t take very much time for the Trackers to get the offensive ball rolling, as Ricky Bateman scored the team’s first goal of the regular season only 3:44 into the opening frame.Just under 4 minutes later, Kody McManus doubled the Trackers’ lead, scoring on the power-play for a 2-0 lead.The second period opened with the Trackers leading 2-1, and unfolded much like the first.- Advertisement -The Trackers outscored the Thunder 2-1, thanks to back-to-back goals off the stick of Brandon Howard, which was his second scored with the man-advantage.The B.C. & Yukon Trackers owned the third period, which began with the Trackers leading 4-2 and ended with the scoreboard reading 6-2 in favour of the visiting team.The two goals in the third came courtesy of McManus, who with his third goal, opened his season by scoring a hat-trick.Advertisement The NE B.C. & Yukon Tracker Flyers will have some time to enjoy their season opening victory, as they next play Friday, October 12 in Strathcona against the Warriors.The team will make its home debut Saturday, October 20 in Dawson Creek, then in Fort St. John the following day, for back-to-back games against the very same Slake Lake Thunder. With his three goal performance, McManus has jumped to an early lead in the league’s goal scoring race.To go along with a six goal performance, the Trackers also showed they could play tight defensively, allowing only 12 shots on net throughout the entire game.Even more impressive was their penalty kill, which was put to the test a total of nine times Sunday and allowed only one goal.With a ten save performance in net, Trackers goaltender Michael Chute earned his first victory of the season.Advertisementlast_img read more

District gives OK for online charter school

first_imgThe Los Angeles County Online High School is proposed by a firm affiliated with the University of Phoenix. The school is set to start in August. The school missed the district’s November deadline to submit a charter petition, but the board in early May voted 3-2 to change the district’s charter-school policy to allow consideration of late applications under “special circumstances.” Trustee Al Beattie said the charter school will give certain students another educational option and that students will have to comply with all of the district’s graduation requirements, including completing a senior project. “I think this is an opportunity to provide a choice for students in the valley that are currently not participating in the conventional school system,” Beattie said. “There are a number of students who are in some form of home study, possibly supported by a charter school but not one overseen by our district.” Had the district not approved the charter school, Beattie said, it would have been approved by another district with the potential of taking away Antelope Valley students. LANCASTER – Overruling opposition from teachers, Antelope Valley Union High School District trustees have approved an online charter school. The 3-2 vote came on the condition that a suitable memorandum of understanding is developed that will detail how the school will be operated, trustees said. “If the MOU does not hold up, then the board can vote to revoke the approval,” said trustee Ira Simonds, who along with trustee Donita Winn, voted against the charter petition. The split vote came during a special meeting Wednesday, a week after a public hearing in which teachers voiced their opposition to the school. Simonds, a retired district teacher, said he voted against the school because he didn’t feel it would provide a quality education. “Students need to have that one-on-one (teacher connection),” Simonds said. He also noted that the charter school was up against a state deadline Wednesday to qualify for advanced funding from the state. “We voted so they could get state funding,” Simonds said. Winn said going to a regular high school, with its socialization and students working in groups, is part of a complete education. “There are things you get when you learn with other people,” Winn said. “We need to be teaching kids morals and ethics. How do you do that online? I do not feel it’s a full education process.” karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DD Fitness: Staying hydrated in the heat!

first_imgThe summer has finally arrived and with it has come the heat! With temperatures staying in the low to mid 20’s for the past few weeks, people are out and about more and being more active.Long may it last. More and more people are getting the trainers on and hitting the roads and making the most of the sunshine, and who can blame them?Walking, jogging, Running, cycling, fitness classes are being taken outside to get our yearly dose of vitamin D.With the increase in temperature and activity also comes an increase in perspiration, (sweating to you and me).This means that you should be thinking of your hydration more and it shouldn’t be overlooked whenever you increase your activity levels. More than half of the human body is composed of water, and we need it to survive.It only makes sense that with increased perspiration, we should be increasing our fluid intake also.Different factors will determine just how much we need to take in and I will cover some of them below.The type of exercise, the intensity of the exercise, the duration of the exercise, the weight and fitness levels of the individual involved in the exercise. These will all have an impact on how much the person will perspire and the levels of fluid loss.Water will need to be replaced and if the session is particularly sweaty, some electrolytes may also be needed to replace the salt lost through excess sweating. The old saying drink when you are thirsty is a good enough way to determine how hydrated you are.But, if you play sports, exercise regularly or are an athlete, it may not be the best way to monitor your hydration levels.With every drop in hydration, an athletes performance will also drop, so it is important to keep your levels up to prevent this from happening.One way to check how hydrated you are is to weigh yourself before and after exercise.Comparing your body weight before and after exercise can be used to estimate how much fluid you have lost through sweating and you can gauge your fluid requirements. Your weight loss is more than likely from fluid loss, so drinking enough to replenish these losses will keep you hydrated.Anything over a one percent loss in body weight will indicate dehydration and anything over five percent will indicate serious dehydration. You do not want to get near these levels, especially if you want to perform at optimal levels.• % Body Weight Change• Well Hydrated -1 to +1%• Minimal Dehydration -1 to -3%• Significant Dehydration -3 to -5%• Serious Dehydration > -5%For those of you who are not athletes and just want a simple way to judge hydration, the urine colour test chart is a simple, but effective way to do this.A large amount of light-coloured urine means you are well hydrated. The darker the colour, the more dehydrated you are.If your urine is constantly above 5, you may want to start increasing your water intake and decreasing the other ‘fluids’ you are consuming.HYDRATION BEFORE EXERCISEDrink fluids as needed the day before and leading up to the event.Drink 250-350ml of water or sports drink 2-3 hours beforehand.Sip on 250-300ml of water 10-15 minutes before exercise starts.HYDRATION DURING EXERCISESip on 100-200ml of water every 15- 20 minutes when exercising for less than 60 minutes.Sip on a further 100-200ml of a sport drink every 15-20 minutes when exercising greater than 60 minutes.Try not to drink too much during exercise.HYDRATION AFTER EXERCISEWeigh yourself after training or exercise and drink 600-700ml of water or sports drink for every one pound lost.You should be aiming to start this within two hours after exercise.While a normal workout may not require electrolytes post workout, if you are training for long duration endurance exercise, training for a marathon or cycling or a particularly intense workout in the heat, you will benefit from electrolytes and may need them to help replenish fluids completely.• Sports drinks like Powerade ion or Gatorade,• Diorolyte or another electrolyte powder• Coconut waterThese can all provide a good source of electrolytes post workout.For throughout the day and on a daily basis, fruit and vegetables are another great way to help with your hydration levels.They can be a good source of fluids along with your regular water intake and they also improve the vitamins and mineral content of your diet.Bananas are a great source of potassium and are a great way to refuel during a long workout.Finally, if you feel dizzy or lightheaded during your workout, it can be a sign of slight dehydration.If this happens, stop what you are doing, take a seat and sip on water or a sports drink.If it doesn’t settle it may be best to leave the session until another day when you are fully recovered and properly hydrated.Keeping well hydrated is a great way to improve your training sessions and your performance.With the summer on its way and the good weather hanging around for a while, if you are intending on getting more active, remember the tips above and you will be having a safe and hydrated workout.#leanin2018Our next Lean in 2018 program starts in 1 weeks’ time on August 6th.Spaces are filling up fast.So, If you would like to join our thriving fitness community, contact me through the links below.Be sure to keep up with all my articles and posts through my website and socials here:https://www.rushefitness.ie/https://www.facebook.com/rushefitness/https://www.instagram.com/rushefitness/* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Fitness LTDDD Fitness: Staying hydrated in the heat! was last modified: July 27th, 2018 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)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

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets: Moon, Atmosphere, and Mass

first_imgby Dr Henry RichterThis is a continuation of my discussion on the requirements for life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe. Facing Reality #1 listed 20 features and characteristics, all of which are required for life to exist and flourish. It also addressed the importance of our location in the galaxy. Facing Reality #2 addressed our location in the solar system and characteristics of our orbit. Now we will move in closer to our planet earth, and look at what our moon does for us, examine a little about the earth itself, and then discuss our atmosphere.The MoonApollo astronaut Jim Irwin standing on the moon in “Moon Rovers” by Alan Bean. Used by permission.Earth has a satellite moon, about a quarter of a million miles away. It is about one-fourth the size of the earth, and in a nearly circular orbit around the earth. Each orbit takes just under thirty days – a month (from “moon-th”). This moon does a number of things for us, some of which are important to the support of higher forms of life.First, the gravitational pull of the moon helps stabilize the tilt of the earth as it spins once a day. This tilt is important because it creates the seasons. As the earth progresses around the sun, making a complete trip in a year, direct sunlight varies throughout the year. For the summer solstice the northern hemisphere get more straight-on sunshine, for the two equinoxes the sunshine illuminates our sphere equally, then for the winter solstice the southern hemisphere gets more sun. Having these seasons fosters plant growth and re-growth in a cyclic pattern, giving us more productivity of plants—not to mention a more interesting environment to live in.Second, the gravitational pull of the moon creates tides in the ocean and in the earth’s crust. Tides in the oceans are important since this is what stirs the water up, allowing it to absorb oxygen from the atmosphere (essential to marine life) and moves nutrients around. The movement of water from the ocean’s depths causes constant mixing; without it, the oceans would be stale water, not healthful to life forms (both plant and animal). The tidal action is minimal at the equator, and substantial at high latitudes, being as much as fifty feet of vertical movement in parts of Alaska. There the tides are such that one does not want to be trapped on one of the mud flats in the ocean inlets, as this much tidal action means the water rushes in and out faster than one can run.The pull on the earth’s crust is not so noticeable, but does cause some movement on a geographical scale. This flexes the earth’s surface, and does facilitate tectonic movement under the crust.  It helps the earth’s dynamics, freshening the surface and sub-surface mantle. Let me digress a moment with something that really impresses me.There are a large number of features that do not relate to allowing life, but make life interesting. I have commented from time to time about features that allow scientific exploration related to an understanding of the universe and its principles. I note that the moon is of an exact size and location to exactly blot out the sun in a very precise way. The fact that we have solar eclipses that allow a special examination of the sun is remarkable. When the moon juxtaposes itself in front of the sun, often there is an exact fit to blot out just the sun, but not its atmosphere. When a total solar eclipse occurs, the sun’s atmosphere (the chromosphere), and its spectra can be recorded. Because of this tight fit, much was learned about the sun – one example being the discovery of the element helium. If the moon were 1% larger, the chromosphere would be hidden. If the moon were 1% smaller, there would be too much light to see the chromosphere (as occurs in annular eclipses) Fascinating!Great American Eclipse of Aug 21, 2017, by Dave WeberThe AtmosphereMoving in even closer we come to the earth’s atmosphere. The atmosphere is very thin and is held in by gravity. The amount of atmosphere results in a gas pressure that is low enough to not crush delicate life and chemical structures. Some planets have an atmosphere that is destructively dense with correspondingly high pressures. Venus, for example, has a dense atmosphere of carbon dioxide with such pressure that it crushes spacecraft that have landed on the planet. That particular notorious ‘global warming’ gas also creates a greenhouse effect, making the atmosphere unsurvivably hot. Earth’s atmospheric pressure is high enough to supply oxygen to tissues in a quantity sufficient to facilitate metabolism.Again, we see other factors that are just right, such as the composition of the earth’s atmosphere. Three main components comprise our atmosphere: 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen and 1% carbon dioxide. The oxygen is necessary for metabolism. Too much oxygen would overwhelm the metabolic chemical reactions; i.e., they would in essence burn up. Too little oxygen would not support metabolic reactions. The nitrogen, although somewhat inert, provides enough substance to the atmosphere to maintain its thickness. Nitrogen is used by plants to build molecules such as amino acids, and thus is also a vital element for life. As we breathe, nitrogen helps sweep out our lungs, clearing out carbon dioxide, a waste product from our body metabolism. The low concentration of carbon dioxide provides enough carbon for plant growth. It also helps regulate the temperature of the atmosphere. There is much public concern about the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the possibility of climate change. Just a small change in the carbon dioxide percentage can cause global changes in temperature. Some of the oxygen exists in the form of ozone in the high atmosphere which absorbs harmful ultraviolet light from the sun.Lightning storms from Earth orbit (NASA)Another important role of the atmosphere is to transport water. As planets go, Earth’s atmosphere is generally pretty mild wind-wise. Some of the planets have violent windstorms with velocities of many hundreds of miles per hour. We have an occasional hurricane or typhoon, but, in general, winds are gentle. Water evaporates from the ocean and lakes and is carried around by our atmosphere. Clouds form and the water drops to earth as rain or snow, thus watering most of the continents. Although probably not a key requisite for life, the transport of water to wet the land is sure a good thing.The inner planets have atmospheres of carbon dioxide, methane, oxygen, and nitrogen.  The outer planets – the gas giants – are mainly hydrogen, helium, and traces of methane and ammonia. All the planets (except earth, of course) have atmospheres that would not support life. They also have temperatures that will not support life.Earth’s MassThe mass of the earth is just right to create gravitational attraction sufficient to hold things to the surface, and to maintain our atmosphere. Too much gravity would make living structures (at least as we know them) have a difficult time growing and moving. Too little gravity would mean no atmosphere, so the mass of a planet needs to be within a certain range. The mass of the earth is distributed from the iron-nickel core, to the mantle, and to the subsurface material and the rocky surface.In the next segment of this series, we will examine additional realities that must be faced to have a habitable planet, finding once again that the earth is right in the ‘Goldilocks Zone’ of being just right.Is the earth a product of design or chance?

HIV/Aids in the workplace

first_img27 May 2003The government moved a step further in addressing the issue of HIV/Aids in the workplace on Monday with the launch of the HIV/Aids Technical Assistance Guidelines.The Guidelines, proposed by the Commission for Employment Equity and the department of labour, advises employers on how to deal with the issue of HIV/Aids in a manner that will improve productivity and uplift the morale of infected and affected workers.The Guidelines warn against discrimination and stigmatisation, saying these will not help HIV-positive workers to continue to contribute to the country’s economy.The 74-page document recommends that employers establish HIV/Aids workplace committees, the mainstreaming of HIV/Aids and gender issues, as well as the development of policy on prevention of the disease.The guidelines in PDF formatProfessor Mapule Ramashala, chairperson of the Commission for Employment Equity, said the department of labour’s Code of Good Practice on HIV/Aids had guided the development of the new document.The Guidelines will help employers and unions to work together to create a conducive environment in the workplace, Ramashala said. “An environment free of discrimination and stigma is important in the workplace. So, the Guidelines focus on practical management strategies.”The Guidelines also seek to ensure the sustainability of provident funds.International Labour Organisation (ILO) representative Cynthia Yinusa said it was important for workers to contribute to the economy, irrespective of their HIV status.Yinusa said the ILO was working with adult basic education and training and the National African Federation of Chamber of Commerce to address HIV/Aids in the informal sector.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Behind Blooki.st — A Blog + Book Site That’s All Journey, No Destination

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Blooki.st is a blogging platform stripped almost to the bone. Open a “blook” — supposedly what you get when you cross a blog and a book — and it suddenly consumes your entire browser screen. Scrolling down actually moves you from left to right in typical Western reading fashion. With this full-screen approach, photography is blown up to stunning, enveloping proportions. The only other feature you can tack on is text in a single font. “What we wanted was to offer anyone a piece of their own land,” Zuzic says. “With Blooki.st, we reverse engineered the whole process. We knew where we wanted to end up and then stripped it down to the bare essentials.” Not surprising given its straightforward focus on images and text, Blooki.st has created a small but dedicated niche for itself as a place to showcase portfolios and travel photography. So how did a couple of post-grads with ambitions set on the IT industry transition to a serene blogging platform perfect for cutting out the noise?“We always wanted to build something that would give back to the community,” Zuzic says. Initially, the pair thought the music world was their calling, but were drawn more and more towards publishing platforms as their idea machine kicked into high gear. “We were changing ideas week by week until we ran out of everything. A “blook” was just a concept we had lying around until one day we realized that was it.”The fact that each blook moves left to right is a nifty touch. But from a self-publishing philosophy standpoint, a blook contains a myriad of possibilities reduced to the simplest of forms, with potential far beyond portfolios and photography. As more blooks get added to the site, the way people use it begins to change, noticeably, day by day. A Good Wander SpoiledWhen the Blooki.st cofounders initially hopped a plane out of Slovenia, they had high hopes. Zuzic had studied law and Robar media communications, but both were convinced the world’s most desirable opportunities lay elsewhere.“I thought there must be something better than ordinary life in the office,” Zuzic says. “We had big egos, and lots of optimism…so we took the plunge.” The plunge was London, where Zuzic and Robar flew without a return ticket.The plan was ambiguous: start a company, expand an idea, create something unique. The focus was originally on IT, but it was broad, and without ever having crafted a single line of code, the pair knew that their loose roadmap was a bit of a risky undertaking. That was in April of 2011, and it did not go well. “All projects or ideas we had were disastrous,” Zuzic admits. “We were looking for that perfect idea, looking for people to join our team, facing high costs of living and had no success.” When it starting becoming clear that it wasn’t going to be as easy as the duo had hoped, they were forced to recalculate their approach. “We realized that optimism without a bit of realism won’t work.”So Zuzic and Robar started from scratch, and kept the ball rolling through failed idea after failure idea. Not until a good friend of theirs, developer Jani Gorse from the Slovenian village of Kot pri Ribnici, showed interest in participating in something outside of his day job did the team find that they were ready to get an idea off the ground. And thus Blooki.st was born.Blooking AheadThe team has now expanded to four people; in October of last year, Luka Locniskar joined as a front-end developer. But the platform is still in a stripped-down alpha phase.“The good news is the platform is already publicly available,” Zuzic says. Blooki.st launched on April 3, and began quietly will a select few invites. The team let it grow organically from there, and by mid-April it had garnered around 600 users. That met the requirements the team needed to test all the aspects of the platform properly.“We were a bit ‘evil’ and did not include any guides, because we wanted to see how our users will respond,” he adds. “Regarding the content, we have seen various styles, from poetry to photography, short cute blooks to massive ones, showing the variety we have to promote and work on.” This variety has given the Blooki.st team some ideas about moving forward, especially in a rather unchartered space for blogging: user revenue models.“We aim to start challenging the traditional platforms not only in terms of content distribution, but also revenue options for the users,” Zuzic says. There are also plans to make Blooki.st as writer-friendly as it is photographer-friendly, with a focus on self-publishing everything from journalistic non-fiction to novellas and poetry.What any of that will look like is still part of a fluid process changing week by week, but the Blooki.st team’s attitude towards planning seems to have aligned with that of the very simple nature of the blook itself: it will happen when it happens, naturally, and without too much fuss. A prime example of this blookist attitude is with the site’s beta release, which is Blooki.st’s closest thing to an official next destination in the meandering roadmap that started two years ago in Slovenia. (The site is officially still in alpha, if you believe what you see when you visit it.) But there’s no official timeline for a beta release, either. Zuzic says it might just come overnight whenever the team feels ready. When Adrian Zuzic and Matej Robar set out to be entrepreneurs, the Slovenian friends had no clear idea of what they wanted to invent, much less how they’d go about inventing it.Yet after an agonizing and largely undirected period of trial and error, what they ended up inventing was Blooki.st, a blogging platform that, oddly enough, lets visitors wander through photographs, essays and personal stories in much the same aimless yet rewarding way Zuzic and Robar created the site in the first place.Meet Blooki.st Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… nick statt Tags:#Blogging#publishing#Web Development last_img read more

Mining scam: Another charge sheet against former Goa CM

first_imgA Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Goa Police probing the ₹35,000-crore mining scams filed another charge sheet against former Chief Minister Digambar Kamat and others on Saturday for illegally condoning the delay of a mining lease. Mr. Kamat has already been charge-sheeted by the SIT in a similar case last month. Superintendent of Police Karthik Kashyap, who heads the SIT, told The Hindu the team had recorded statements of 25 witnesses in the 700-page charge sheet.The charge sheet says, “Accused Digamber Kamat, then Mines and Chief Minister of Goa [from 2007-2012] had condoned delay for renewal of a mining lease of Vaicuntrao Kadnekar and other members of family, by overruling observations of two IAS officers and then Director of Mines to not condone delay. The State government had no powers to condone delay as per law.” It says the leaseholders entered into an agreement with Magnum Minerals, transferring the rights of the lease without approval from the State and Central government and “were allowed to mine iron ore with the blessings of Mr. Kamat.” This resulted in a loss of ₹135 crore to the exchequer. Others named in the charge sheet include retired senior geologist A.T. D’Souza and retired assistant geologist Hector Fernandes from the Department of Mines, and Ravindra Prakash and Prakash Sahu of Magnum Minerals Pvt. Limited.Former Goa Mines Secretary Rajiv Yaduvanshi has turned approver in the case.last_img read more

Premier League: Tammy Abraham Brace Fires Chelsea to First Win of Lampard Reign

Norwich: Tammy Abraham fired Chelsea to their first win of the Frank Lampard era as the young striker’s double clinched a 3-2 victory against Norwich on Saturday.Lampard had gone three games without a win in all competitions since he took over as Chelsea manager, but the Blues legend finally got off the mark thanks to his faith in Abraham. Abraham had failed to score in his three previous appearances this term, but the 21-year-old striker bagged his first goal for the club to put Chelsea ahead in the sunshine at Carrow Road.A pulsating encounter saw Todd Cantwell equalise for Norwich before Mason Mount restored Chelsea’s advantage.Teemu Pukki’s fifth goal in three games this season brought Norwich back on level terms before half-time, only for Abraham to give Chelsea the points with his predatory second half finish.After a thrashing at Manchester United and a draw with Leicester in Chelsea’s first two Premier League matches, Lampard will have been encouraged by the displays of Abraham and Mount.Up and running! 😍#NORCHE pic.twitter.com/ips4OrZB6b— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) August 24, 2019 He has pinned his hopes on the youngsters to lead Chelsea through a potentially difficult season that sees the club under a transfer ban and without their best player following Eden Hazard’s move to Real Madrid.While Chelsea have now conceded nine goals in four games in all competitions under Lampard, the former England midfielder will hope his team’s attacking potential keeps them afloat.When Pedro suffered a hamstring injury in the warm-up and was replaced by Ross Barkley, it left Lampard to send out the youngest start league line-up for Chelsea in 25 years at an average age of 24 years and 208 days.Abraham was one of the youngsters Lampard had backed to shine as he replaced Olivier Giroud after being benched against Leicester last weekend.Subjected to racist abuse on social media after missing the penalty which saw Chelsea lose the European Super Cup penalty shoot-out against Liverpool recently, Abraham took just three minutes to reward Lampard for his decision.Cesar Azpilicueta whipped over a precise cross and Abraham alertly drifted away from the Norwich defence to drill a fine first-time strike past Tim Krul from 10 yards.TOUCHLINE CELEBRATIONSAbraham, who flourished on loan at second tier Aston Villa last season, celebrated by sprinting to the touchline to hug Lampard as the pair were mobbed by their team-mates.First goal of the season for @TammyAbraham! 💙👏#NORCHE pic.twitter.com/KO5IrcnNLN— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) August 24, 2019 Three minutes later, Chelsea’s creaky defence was exposed by Emiliano Buendia’s burst into the penalty area.Buendia found Pukki, fresh from last weekend’s hat-trick against Newcastle, and this time the prolific Finland striker was the provider with a low cross that Cantwell turned in from close-range.Lampard’s team responded in the 17th minute when Norwich were caught in possession outside their own area and Christian Pulisic fed Mount, the 20-year-old midfielder cutting inside and firing home for his second goal of the season.Andreas Christensen’s point-blank header was superbly pushed over by Krul and Norwich were back on level terms in the 31st minute.Buendia played a pass to Pukki and, with Chelsea’s defenders slow to react, the former Celtic forward demonstrated why he has taken the Premier League by storm with an angled shot that evaded Kepa Arrizabalaga’s limp attempt to save.Mount and Pulisic were both narrowly off target, while Azpilicueta sliced over and Emerson shot straight at Krul as Chelsea pressed hard after the interval.Azpilicueta appealed in vain for a penalty after a challenge from Marco Stiepermann, but Chelsea’s pressure was rewarded in the 68th minute.Picked out by Mateo Kovacic, Abraham left Grant Hanley and Jamal Lewis in his wake as he jinked past the Norwich defenders before slamming a fierce strike past Krul’s mistimed dive.Norwich’s Ben Godfrey headed against the bar moments later, while Chelsea were denied a fourth goal when Kurt Zouma’s effort was disallowed by VAR for Giroud’s foul on Krul. last_img read more

MS Dhoni set to break Sachin Tendulkar’s ODI record

In fact, if Dhoni hits seven sixes against the Black Caps at the Kotla on Thursday, he will become the first Indian to hit 200 ODI sixes.APPROACHING MILESTONESMS Dhoni needs 61 runs to complete 9000 runs in ODIsTom Latham needs 4 runs to complete 1000 runs in ODIsThree more sixes and Dhoni will break Tendulkar’s Indian record of 195 sixesSeven more sixes and Dhoni will become first Indian to hit 200 sixes in ODIsVirat Kohli needs one hundred in a successful chase to equal Sachin Tendulkar’s world record of most (14) hundreds in successful chasesWith the conditions at the Ferozeshah Kotla favouring the spinners, the hosts will bank on their last ODI performance where Kedar Jadhav and experienced leggie Amit Mishra ran through the Kiwi’s middle and lower order. (India haven’t lost an ODI at Feroz Shah Kotla in 11 years)It is also expected that Dhoni will not make any changes to the playing eleven as each player seemed to be complementing each other in the last match.Statistical record of India vs New Zealand: India have played a total number of 94 games against New Zealand, out of which they have won 47. New Zealand has however shown a better performance in terms of win this year, despite India having played one more game than the visitor at 9. While India have lost four matches this year, Kiwis have only seen two defeats.advertisementHead-to-head:  Played Ind won NZ won NR Tied Overall 94 47 41 5 1 in India 28 22 5 1 0 at Delhi 2 2 0 0 0Form guide (most recent listed first): India:  Won Won WonWon Won  New Zealand: Lost Won Lost Won WonPerformance in 2016:  Mts Won Lost Tied NR Win% India 9 5 4 0 0 55.55 New Zealand 8 5 2 0 1 62.50 Captaincy record in ODIs:  Mts Won Lost Tied NR Win%MS Dhoni  195 108 72 4 11 55.38Kane Williamson 20 9 10 0 1 45.00Star batsman Suresh Raina will miss the second ODI against New Zealand as the southpaw is still recovering from a bout of viral fever.In the batting department, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey and Dhoni had decent starts in the last game and are expected to score big runs in the second game. (MS Dhoni surpasses Allan Border, becomes second most successful skipper in ODI history)The bowling department has settled down into a nice rhythm as pacers and spinners chipped in with vital breakthroughs when needed.Sent into bat in the last ODI, New Zealand would have been disappointed to be bowled out with 37 balls still remaining in their innings so skipper Kane Williamson will likely make some changes in the top order.Apart from Tom Latham, batsmen Martin Guptil, Ross Taylor and Williamson looked clueless against the Indian bowlers and will have to come good if they want to match India at Ferozeshah stadium.

Ricky Ponting backs Usman Khawaja to make Australia’s World Cup squad

first_img Reuters New DelhiMarch 20, 2019UPDATED: March 20, 2019 11:55 IST Usman Khawaja was the man-of-the-series in Australia’s 3-2 ODI win over India (AP Photo)In-form batsman Usman Khawaja should be part of Australia’s World Cup plans despite the imminent returns of Steve Smith and David Warner, former captain Ricky Ponting has said.Khawaja struck 383 runs, including two centuries, in Australia’s 3-2 series win over India earlier this month and Ponting is of the view that the left-hander opener had earned his place at the World Cup.”I think we all saw over the last few weeks just how skilful a player Usman Khawaja is… and I think when you see him play like that it just makes you wonder why he doesn’t do it a bit more regularly,” Ponting told reporters on Tuesday.”I would be surprised if Khawaja wasn’t in the (World Cup) squad. Khawaja could probably slot down at three when Warner comes in and Steve Smith might bat at four or five or something just to shore up those middle overs.”Smith and Warner were suspended for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa last year and are set to be reintegrated into the team ahead of the May 30-July 14 World Cup in England and Wales.Ponting, who led Australia to World Cup glory in 2003 and 2007, said current skipper Aaron Finch would continue to lead the side at this year’s tournament but former captain Smith could still be counted for advice.”(Smith) is still out on the field, so he can help Aaron Finch out,” Ponting added. “I’d imagine that Aaron Finch would be leaning on Steve Smith a lot for a bit of advice, maybe leading into the games, as far as preparation is concerned.”advertisementAlso Read | Australia’s Adam Zampa still not counting on World Cup spotFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

He admitted he lied in a subsequent news conference, saying he used sticky tape covered in dirt to change the ball’s condition.Smith later admitted the plan to use sandpaper had been hatched by the team’s leadership group and in a later interview Bancroft, a relative newcomer to the side, said he had carried out the instruction to “fit in”.advertisementBancroft, who has eight test caps, could be named in Australia’s squad for the Ashes series in England this year.Also Read | New Zealand sports minister hopes Bangladesh will return to playFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

The Little Master, as he was fondly called by his fans, is regarded as one of the finest batsmen the sport has ever had.Sunil Gavaskar made his debut for India against the West Indies in 1971. The Mumbai cricketer showed he belongs to the highest level of the sport as early as his maiden series as he smashed 771 runs in the Test series in West Indies.Gavaskar was India’s batting mainstay during the 1970s and the 1980s. As they famously put, “as long as Gavaskar was there, there was hope”. Gavaskar was known for his immaculate defence. His ability to concentrate over long periods was peerless.Gavaskar’s swag was unmatched as well. Imagine facing the big West Indies fast bowlers of the 1970s without helmets? Well, Gavaskar battled fire with fire as he was among the most successful players agianst top-quality pace bowling during his heyday.More importantly, Gavaskar was a true professional. The way he prepared for cricket matches, let alone international outings rubbed off on his teammates. India’s World Cup-winning former captain, Kapil Dev often sings praises of Gavaskar’s professional approach that changed the outlook of Indian cricket.The batting great from Mumbai was the first batsman in world cricket to score 10,000 runs in Test cricket. Gavaskar is the only batsman to have scored double hundreds in all four innings of Test matches.Gavaskar represented India in 125 Tests and 108 ODIs before calling it quits in 1987.

Kosovo UN envoy meets senior Serbian officials in Belgrade

23 July 2008The United Nations envoy to Kosovo travelled to Belgrade today to meet with two senior Serbian Government ministers for talks on resolving the dispute over Kosovo’s status. A spokesperson for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today that the purpose of Lamberto Zannier’s introductory meetings with Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic and Kosovo Minister Goran Bogdanovic in Belgrade was to move forward with dialogue on the practical issues that Mr. Ban had highlighted in his last special report to the Security Council. Mr. Zannier is set to travel to New York where, on Friday, he will present the Secretary-General’s regular report on Kosovo to the Council. Earlier this month Mr. Ban said that the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) had to adjust to the new reality on the ground, given the developments since Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia in February. The Secretary-General said he had decided to move forward with the reconfiguration of the structure and profile of UNMIK. Accordingly, he had instructed the mission to cooperate with the European Union (EU), so it could assume an enhanced operational role in the rule of law area under a UN “umbrella” headed by his Special Representative, in line with the original 1999 resolution that established the mission. Mr. Ban said that UNMIK would continue to support Kosovo in its effort to consolidate democratic governance institutions, advance economic growth and move towards a future in Europe as part of the western Balkans. read more

Low health standards impeding indigenous rights – Ban

9 August 2009The low standards of health among indigenous communities is perpetuating the gap in many countries between the recognition of their rights and the actual situation on the ground, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, calling for swift action to find solutions. In his message on the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, the Secretary-General appealed to governments and civil society “to act with urgency and determination to close this implementation gap, in full partnership with indigenous peoples.”This year’s Day focuses on the threat posed by HIV and AIDS, and Mr. Ban underscored the importance of indigenous people having access to the information and services needed for detection, treatment and prevention.This marginalized group – numbering 370 million in 70 countries – suffers disproportionately from low health standards linked to poverty, malnutrition, environmental contamination and inadequate healthcare, he said.Calling the world’s indigenous peoples the “custodians of some of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth” who speak a majority of all languages, the Secretary-General welcomed some recent national moves in which governments have apologized for past injustices, while others have adopted legal reforms.But he cautioned that “many face discrimination and racism on a daily basis,” as well as poverty and inadequate access to education.UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said the International Day is an occasion to reaffirm the commitment to translate positive developments in international human rights standards into concrete progress for indigenous peoples.“To achieve this, we all – States, indigenous peoples, the United Nations system and others concerned – must join our efforts and reach solutions based on true dialogue, mutual understanding, tolerance and respect for human rights,” she noted in a statement. “This is no easy task. But it is the only way we can move the rights of indigenous peoples from paper to practice.”Ms. Pillay, in an opinion piece published today in The Hindu, stressed that the world’s indigenous peoples need and deserve more than just symbolic celebrations on 9 August. “After centuries of repression, they need comprehensive tools to defend their human rights, their way of life, and their aspirations.” One such tool, she noted, is the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Adopted in 2007, the Declaration underscores the right of indigenous peoples to all social and health services, and to the enjoyment of the highest standards of physical and mental health. “We must step up our common efforts to make the Declaration something more than a mere pledge of intent. We must translate its letter and spirit into concrete change, change that can be felt in indigenous peoples’ daily life.”In 1994, the General Assembly proclaimed 9 August – the anniversary of the first meeting in 1982 of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Subcommission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights – to be the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People.It will be commemorated this year at UN Headquarters in New York tomorrow with cultural events and panel discussions. read more

Afghanistan Brahimi German Chancellor discuss latest developments

In their talks, Mr. Brahimi and Chancellor Schroeder discussed progress in the Loya Jirga process and the extension of International Security Assistance Force, UN officials said.They also reviewed the funding situation of humanitarian agencies, in particular the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the World Food Programme (WFP), which are faced with increased demands due to the very fast pace of refugee returns and the increased nutritional needs of the Afghan population.Mr. Brahimi thanked the Chancellor for the lead role Germany has been playing in supporting the Ministry of Interior to develop a new Afghan police force.Meanwhile in Mazar-i-Sharif, the site of recent skirmishes, two parties involved in the clashes said they were satisfied with the withdrawal of heavy weaponry from the area – part of an agreement brokered by the UN to end hostilities in the area.In a meeting on Wednesday between General Dostum and General Atta that included representatives of Hezbi-Wahdat, Hezbi-Wahdat-Akhbari and Harakat-Islami, the two military leaders said they were pleased with the latest developments, even though severe road conditions had limited the withdrawal of General Atta’s tanks, artillery and other weapons to the gorges before Marmul, according to a UN spokesman. read more

Un nouveau microscope pour voir le vivant en mouvement

first_imgUn nouveau microscope pour voir le vivant en mouvementDes scientifiques du Laboratoire européen de biologie moléculaire sont parvenus à mettre au point un nouveau microscope qui permet d’observer les molécules en déplacement dans les cellules vivantes.  Observer les molécules en déplacement dans les cellules vivantes, c’est maintenant possible grâce à un nouveau microscope mis au point par les chercheurs du Laboratoire européen de biologie moléculaire. Encore inédite, cette technique d’observation microscopique permet alors de visualiser des processus qui étaient jusqu’à présent invisibles. Pour cela, l’appareil combine deux techniques : la microscopie à feuille de lumière et la spectrométrie moléculaire qui lui permettent d’enregistrer la fluorescence de chaque pixel à des intervalles de moins d’une milliseconde. Bien que très rapides, certains processus tels que la diffusion des molécules à travers les cellules, s’avèrent ainsi tout à fait observables et mesurables.  À lire aussiUne incroyable plongée dans l’infiniment petitCette technologie s’adresse à des échantillons de quelques dizaines de micromètres à quelques millimètres, fixés ou vivants, explique une publication du CNRS. “C’est vraiment de la biochimie visuelle”, s’enthousiasme Malte Wachsmuth, qui a développé le microscope à l’EMBL et qui explique également qu’il leur est désormais possible de “suivre par fluorescence des molécules marquées dans l’ensemble des cellules vivantes, en 3D, et de voir comment leurs propriétés biochimiques, comme les taux d’interaction et les affinités de liaison, varient à l’intérieur de la cellule”.Selon les scientifiques, les possibilités offertes par ce nouveau microscope sont donc immenses. Il pourrait permettre d’étudier des processus allant du rôle des hormones de croissance dans le développement des cancers à la régulation de la division cellulaire ou même la signalisation et la structuration du développement des tissus dans l’embryon, rapporte Science et avenir. D’ailleurs, le microscope a déjà fait ses première preuves.Découverte d’une nouvelle forme d’ADN nucléaire En effet, grâce à ce microscope, les chercheurs ont fait une découverte majeure. Il n’existe pas deux mais trois formes de chromatine. C’est en étudiant l’interaction entre une protéine et la chromatine, que les scientifiques ont constaté la présence de ce nouvel état mixte. Auparavant, l’élément n’était connu que sous deux formes : l’hétérochromatine (repliée avec un ADN inactif) ou l’euchromatine (forme décondensée permettant l’expression génique). Et les chercheurs n’avaient pas même soupçonné l’existence d’une troisième forme. Le 13 août 2011 à 09:51 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

EXCLUSIVE 73 of workers want employers to do more to motivate them

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: More than seven in 10 (73%) UK workers want their employers to make more effort to motivate them, according to research commissioned by benefits provider Reward Gateway.The survey of more than 2,000 UK employees, carried out by Censuswide in October 2018, also found that those who are not strongly motivated in their current job are most likely to say they derive motivation from their salary (41%), followed by good working relationships (37%) and having a purpose (21%).However, respondents who class themselves as extremely motivated are most likely to say they get this from job satisfaction (52%), followed by feeling respected, having a purpose and good working relationships (all 37%).Those who are extremely motivated tend to say they have a good understanding of their organisation’s business goals (55%), more so than those who are not well motivated (24%). In a similar trend, the majority of strongly motivated respondents stated that they take pride in their work (84%), compared with less than a third of those who are not motivated (29%).The difference between those who are motivated and extremely motivated is also significant, with pride in their work dropping to 62% among the latter group.The top five effects of poor motivation reported by respondents were worsening mood (60%), reduction in productivity levels (48%), declining mental health (46%), reduction in quality of work (40%) and a worsening diet (28%).More than a quarter (26%) of employees felt that their relationships with family and friends suffered from a lack of motivation at work, while two in 10 (20%) admitted to drinking more alcohol when unmotivated.Despite these effects, the research found that workers who are not motivated will stay in a job for an average of 11 months. The older an employee is, the more likely it is they will remain. Workers aged between 45 and 54 stay a mean average of 13.75 months in a demotivating role, while those aged 16 to 24 only stay for 5.34 months.Rob Boland, group director of product and client success at Reward Gateway, said: “It’s clear that employers can be doing more to motivate and engage their people in the right way. From our research and our experience with thousands of [organisations] with whom we’ve worked, the [organisations] driving the greatest commercial results are the best at addressing employee motivation.“These businesses centre their engagement strategies on strategically recognising their employees to boost visibility for great work, communicating openly and honestly with them, irrespective of location or demographic, and surveying their people regularly to understand how to constantly improve and adapt their strategy.”last_img read more

Bering Strait School District unveils Fab Lab course in Unalakleet

first_imgAt the Unalakleet School, a new class has been added to the curriculum for students that currently no other school in the Bering Strait School District offers. It’s called Fab Lab.Listen Now Taught by Reid Tulloch, the Fab Lab class has resources like vinyl cutters, 3D printers and laser engravers available for students to use. (Photo by Davis Hovey, KNOM – Nome)Principal of the Wolfpack body, Perry Corsetti, started the school day by leading his students in the Pledge of Allegiance. Morning classes  commenced, and by 9:00, Career and Technical Education (CTE) teacher Reid Tulloch began instructing his students to work with advanced technologies.“We call it ‘Fab Lab,’ it’s really a ‘makerspace’ that we created, and it’s got 10 PC computers with a Rhino 3D design software,” Tulloch said. “And we work in conjunction with a vinyl cutter, so we can make vinyl stickers or signs that go on the end of doors. We also have a laser engraver, cutter that’s the next thing the kids use, and then last, we have a 3D printer prototyper.”Tulloch said his students learn how to work with 2-dimensional objects, then “two and a half” dimensions, and finally work their way up to 3 dimensional objects and print them out with the printer.In Tulloch’s second Fab Lab class of the day, one of the senior students, Genesis Blatchford, worked on creating a 3D box using an instructional packet and a computer program. Blatchford already finished the previous assignment, which was a key chain that he designed himself.“I took the class because I did a drafting class back at my old school. I knew I liked drafting, and something where I can be more artistic, ’cause I really like art, too… We could create your own designs and stuff like that key chain was really fun making,” Blatchford recalled.Even though this is not a music class, a guitar was also made with Fab Lab technologies by BSSD’s CTE facilitator, Chase Ervin.Both Ervin and Tulloch took classes in college that prepared them to operate some of these Fab Lab technologies, but Ervin said understanding how to use the programs is the key to success.“We did go down to Sitka to a training, where they pretty much gave us a file and we printed it out,” Ervin said. “But once you learn the programs, you begin to understand what you can and can’t do, so basically, I’m able to go in and build my own guitar and know the limits and capabilities of the machines that we’re running.”Ervin said when teaching the students, the staff tries to use their projects to focus on the needed skills rather than just teaching repeatability.John Weemes, the Coordinator of Program Support for the BSSD, believes there is a greater skill to be learned, as well.“Not only transferable skills whether it’s running a piece of software or running a grinder or running an editing program to update a web page, yes that’s important, but in my view, what’s even more important is having students collaborate across the region, because they are our leaders, they are our future leaders in our region, in the state, and beyond, and that’s an authentic structure where they can engage in meaningful tasks that build their capacity to work together to achieve a goal,” Weemes stated.Weemes has a grand vision for collaboration between the Fab Lab and various sites across the school district which would mirror businesses in the industry.“So let’s take Ulus as an example,” Weemes began. “We could use a CNC plasma cutter that’s in one of our sites, which is NACTEC, so they profile the blanks. Another site that has a functioning metal shop might grind those blanks, yet another site might CNC 3D print those blanks… you see where I’m going with this.”If this vision comes to fruition, Weemes said the $100,000 Fab Lab could be partially self-sustaining and cover its own operating costs.Currently some of the Unalakleet Fab Lab students are working on creating stickers for Eskimo Ninja Warrior Nick Hanson. An upcoming project for all of the Fab Lab classes will be creating puzzles for Santa’s Workshop in December.last_img read more

New theory suggests platybelodon had a separate trunk

first_imgOsborn’s reconstruction of Platybelodon from his 1936 book Proboscidea. Credit: American Museum of Natural History, via the Biodiversity Heritage Library/Wired By most standards, the platybelodon was an odd looking animal—while resembling modern elephants, it also had a protruding lower jaw with horizontal teeth that Sanders believes were used in a scythe-like manner to mow down grass for consumption. Platybelodon fossils were first discovered and described back in the early 1920’s. Since that time, many more fossils (particularly in China) have been found helping to give researchers a better picture of what the animal actually looked like. It’s now pretty clear that they lived approximately 8 to 20 million years ago in Africa, Asia and even made their way to North America. But because their upper mouth region, snout or trunk, was made of softer material that didn’t fossilize very well, researchers have not been able to see what the upper part of the mouth or trunk actually looked like. For that reason, they have had to put forth theories to explain why an animal would grow a lower jaw the way it did and how an upper mouth or trunk might make best use of what it had—otherwise, neither would have evolved the way it did.The earliest depictions of platybelodon show an elephant-like creature with a dexterous upper mouth and large, equally dexterous tongue. The thinking, by one of the first to try to understand how the animal looked—Henry Osborn—was that platybelodon simply used its mouth parts to grab food and eat it, much like most other grazers. Paleontologist David Lambert, suggested back in 1992, however, that careful study of the teeth on the bottom jaw indicated the animal used them for slicing grass, a feat which would have been difficult for a simple normal grazer. Now, Sanders is weighing in, suggesting that the answer is simple—platybelodon had a trunk like modern elephants, but rather than simply using it to yank food from the ground to stuff into its mouth, it used it to hold onto thick tough grasses while sawing with its lower teeth. That would explain, he says, why the trait evolved—it was a way to help feed a large animal that had to subsist on grass that was too tough to simply yank from the ground.

Delivery robot catches fire at university campus students set up vigil

first_imgA KiwiBot, an automated food delivery robot which is present on UC Berkeley’s campus, caught fire on Friday afternoon.In a post, the company explained the incident was due to a faulty battery which had been mistakenly installed instead of a functioning one. The errant battery started smoldering while the robot was idling, leading to smoke, then fire outside the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union.“A member of the community acted swiftly to extinguish the flames using a nearby fire extinguisher. Within moments of the incident occurring, it had already been contained,” the post read.“The Berkeley Fire Department arrived shortly thereafter to secure the scene, and doused the robot with foam ensuring there was no risk of re-ignition.”Some people caught the incident on camera, where a crowd gathered around the blaze.[embedded content]After the incident, students set up a candlelight vigil for the fallen robot. On Facebook, the robot was called a “hero” and a “legend,” according to The Daily Californian.KiwiBot added that following the incident it pulled robots from service, and that orders in progress were delivered by hand. The company added no customers or members of the public were at risk, and that it has installed custom software to monitor the battery’s state.Since 2017, KiwiBot has been used to deliver food around the UC Berkeley campus, where there are more than 100 robots operating as part of the fleet.

Budget cuts not a problem says Visit Florida Canada still a top

first_img Tuesday, June 25, 2019 Share Tags: Crystal River, Florida, Pensacola, SeaWorld Travelweek Group Posted bycenter_img Budget cuts not a problem, says Visit Florida, Canada still a top priority TORONTO — Any concerns about Visit Florida losing steam in the Canadian market following hefty budget cuts were eased yesterday at a media luncheon in Toronto, where much of the talk centered on Canadian initiatives and the importance of travel agents.News broke earlier this year that the state-funded tourism agency’s budget would be cut by US$26 million (from $76m to $50m) next fiscal year, and that the agency itself would expire on Oct. 1. That date, however, has been extended until June 30, 2020 following last-minute budget talks, giving Visit Florida another year to stay afloat and market the destination, particularly in Canada.Speaking exclusively to Travelweek, Meagan Dougherty, Public Relations Director, says that Canada will still be a “huge” target for the agency and that the new budget will not alter its focus at all.“We just have to make our marketing dollars work harder for us and stretch further. When you have a larger budget you can do this, this and this. But with a smaller budget, you really have to pare that down and see what’s going to make the biggest impact,” she says.Canada, she adds, is Florida’s number one international market, with 3.5 million visitors last year, up 2% over the year before. Even more impressive is the fact that Canadians spend an average 21 days in the Sunshine State, making them a highly coveted market.“We’re really seeing an uptick among Canadians, both the drive and fly markets,” she says. “A couple years ago, we took Canada for granted and didn’t put as much emphasis here, which is why we started to see the numbers going down. But as soon as we started reminding Canadians of what we have to offer, the numbers started to go up again.”This renewed focus on Canada will take a slightly different approach; while previous directives showcased Florida’s beaches and theme parks, new efforts are being made to highlight lesser-known destinations within the state.Sana Keller and Meagan Dougherty“We really want to highlight more ‘unknown-to-Canadian’ destinations, which is why we’re here today in Toronto,” says Dougherty. “Florida fatigue is real, but that’s only because people are staying in their comfort zones and going to the same places every year. We want to tell them to come on down and try something new.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTHow this message is delivered to Canadians depends heavily on travel agents, she adds. Referring to them as “our first point of contact on the front lines”, Dougherty stresses the importance of education and why agents need first-hand experience to better sell the destination.“We want to make sure our travel agents are educated to be able to sell the other side of Florida. We have to get them here to experience it for themselves,” she says.To do this, Visit Florida has tied in some of its fams into its new Florida Travel Pro program, an e-learning platform that was launched in both English and French last year. The agency also recently welcomed new Chief Marketing Officer Gerardo Llanes in May, who Dougherty says is very trade-focused.“He’s already hit the ground running and making sure that we have all of the tools in place for our travel agents to learn the destination and sell it as we would – as Floridians,” she says. “He comes to us with a lot of experience in the tourism sector and we’re really looking forward to the changes and improvements he’s going to help us make, especially in the Canadian market.”Here are the destination partners that participated at the luncheon:Suzanne Pelisson-Beasley, SeaWorld Parks & EntertainmentSEAWORLD PARKS & ENTERTAINMENT• According to Suzanne Beasley, Senior Manager of Communications, SeaWorld’s mission focuses solely on education and conservation: “We want guests to be entertained but also be educated and inspired.”• Many of SeaWorld’s attractions are tied to conservation groups and initiatives.

Its messaging can be seen throughout the ride.• All three SeaWorld parks in Orlando – SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica Orlando and Discovery Cove – are now designated as certified autism centres.

provocateur James OKeefes Project Veritas Action have some shocking claims that if they are true would indicate Democrats are playing dirty to get Hillary Clinton elected In one video a contractor seems to brag about sending homeless and mentally ill people to harass Republicans Someone identified as a Democratic National Committee staffer appears to claim credit for pushing Republican contender Donald Trumps rally in Chicago toward violence In another consultants look like they are describing a plan to bus voters across state lines and registering immigrants in the country illegally to vote But if OKeefes previous efforts to infiltrate and expose his foes such as ACORN and NPR are to offer a hint there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical OKeefe has previously spliced videos together to imply its subjects were saying things they were not Even so the latest video has cost someone identified by the Democratic National Committee chairwoman "a temporary regional sub-contractor" his job Another established DNC vendor gave up his contract Another protester who says she was at the Chicago melee linked herself to Clintons campaign although she was paid for work in Arizona in the weeks before anything happened in Illinois The release of the videos made conservatives giddy that OKeefe had claimed yet more scalps for his long-standing effort to show liberal hypocrisy through hidden-camera footage And more embarrassing videos are expected to come before Election Day OKeefe promised Donald Trump urged his audiences in Colorado on Tuesday to go online and watch them "Did you see the protesters yesterday The protesters are paid a lot of money by the DNC and I kept saying I wonder why those people are here Because they never seem to have much on their mind other than stand up and protest" Trump said "Yesterday it came out but it was barely covered by the media but its all over the Internet They were busted They were paid $1500 each They were given cell phones" The videos were published on the conservative Breitbart website whose former chairman is now Trumps campaign CEO Many writers on the site have pushed pro-Trump messages and their readers are loyal to Trumps message of disrupting the GOP Establishment It is a favorite of many on the alt-Right "I sort of always knew it in Chicago" Trump said of a March event that had to be scrapped in the face of violence "Even last night we had people stand up for no reason Its like what are they doing here Can you imagine Thats a big story Hardly covered by the media” Here’s a quick guide to what we know so far THE VIDEOS "What youre about to see will make you uncomfortable and angry Its graphic uncensored and disturbing Our attorneys say there is strong evidence of criminality" OKeefe said in introducing the first of two lengthy videos released so far A man identified as Scott Foval is the star He is at times identified as the national field director at Americans United for Change and as a deputy political director at the separate People for the American Way both liberal groups He also seems to be a contractor for Democracy Partners a consulting firm Foval boasts of ties to the high command of Democratic politics and his role in hiring agitators to embarrass Trump during conversation is taped surreptitiously in what appear to be bars "Were starting anarchy here" Scott Foval says in one clip "We have mentally ill people that we pay to do shit" he says in another He claims to be the "hub" of coordination between the super PACs DNC and Clintons campaigna spot that could be illegal But at other points he seems to say that the DNC and the campaign cannot coordinate That actually is also incorrect The DNC and the Clinton campaign often coordinate as is allowed It’s SuperPACs that need to stay separate in many of their activities So its not clear that Foval really knows campaign finance law at least according to the edited footage "The thing that we have to watch is making sure that there is a double blind between the actual campaign and the actual DNC and what were doing Theres a double blind there So they can plausibly deny that they knew anything" Foval says At other moments it doesnt take much imagination to see how the same quotes on these tapes can be read both ways Take this one from Foval: "The one thing Im never going to do is have some kid get punched out at a rally and then not have his doctor bill and his legal bill if he gets arrested paid for" Veritas says that is proof that the "Clinton dark machine is ready for the violence they foment" Defenders say it is proof that Foval was rejecting Veritas suggestion that they ought to start riots to draw attention Without the full context its impossible to know Foval is hardly the only one on the tapes Another individual identified as Aaron Minter and Aaron Black claims he runs anti-Trump operations and is a DNC deputy director of rapid response He says "that was all us" about the Chicago protest "None of this is supposed to come to back to us" says Minter/ Black whom Veritas says uses both names "Nobody is really supposed to know about me" Minter/ Black says in one video That is easy He wasnt a DNC employee Neither Minter nor Black shows up on DNC payroll during this two-year campaign cycle according to a search of Federal Election Commission records As one party official tells TIME: "He was just bullshitting exaggerating his role and title" Minter/ Black also is said to have coordinated the Chicago protest with Zulema Rodriguez an activist who has been at several anti-Trump events On one video taken at the Republican convention in Cleveland she claims to have been part of an Arizona protest that shut down a highway as well FEC records show she was paid in February for helping the Clinton campaign organize in Arizona but her work there ended on Feb 29 She has since been working for liberal MoveOnorg and its affiliate in Ohio A third player is Cesar Vargas an activist who has helped young people who came illegally to the United States as young children or whose immigration status has lapsed Vargas work with the DREAM Action Coalition made him an easy mark for Veritas But on tape he says the plan to bus immigrants in the country illegally to states with lax rules on voting is "not gonna happen this election" Off-camera a Veritas operator seems to get Vargas to admit the plan is voter fraud but theres no way of telling if that person said what the tape purports Finally the other major figure featured prominently in the videos is Robert Creamer a longtime Democratic consultant who at first appears to entertain plans to coordinate anti-Trump protests with Clintons campaign His firm Democracy Partners joined up with the DNC in June to build crowds and recruit grassroots activists He was ostensibly Fovals employer until Democracy Partners and the DNC cut ties "I am unwilling to become a distraction to the important task of electing Hilary Clinton and defeating Donald Trump in the upcoming election" Creamer said in a statement "As a result I have indicated to the Democratic National Committee that I am stepping back from my responsibilities working with the campaign" (Creamer is the husband of Rep Jan Schakowsky of Illinois Creamer pleaded guilty to bank fraud in 2005 and served five months of prison and 11 months of house arrest) He vigorously denied OKeefes charges and tactics he calls "dirty tricks" "James OKeefe the discredited individual behind this well-orchestrated spying scheme directed at our firm uses methods that would make Richard Nixon and the Watergate burglars proud" Creamer said "OKeefe executed a plot that involved the use of trained operatives using false identifications disguises and elaborate false covers to infiltrate our firm and other consulting firms in order to steal campaign plans and goad unsuspecting individuals into making careless statements on hidden cameras" THE ANATOMY OF A STING The OKeefe investigation began at the latest in April 2016 when a Veritas staffer who went by Steve Packard met Foval according to two officials familiar with the undercover effort who recalled their experiences for TIME The man known as Packard befriended Foval and often pumped him for ideas about political strategy in bars It was like a summer camp for political gamesmanship one said Around that time Creamer hired Foval as a sub-contractor for a Democracy Partners in-the-field program known as Mobilize which delivered trained protesters at sites like Trumps hotels Over drinks Foval appeared to brag about having a far greater role in the operation than he did "I will probably wind up being a partner there at some point" Foval said in the videos In another he talked about Creamer with admiration: "Bob Creamer is diabolical and I love him for it I have learned so much from that man over the last 20 years" Some time in the spring of 2016 a purported donor who called himself Charles Roth approached Creamer about getting involved in politics The pair met a few times including at Washingtons Marriott Marquis hotel lobby According to one official the man who called himself Roth said his father was an immigrant from Hungary and wanted to help immigrants His ideas didnt seem like a good fit for Democracy Partners so Creamer referred him to Americans United for Change where Creamer is a consultant At Americans United for Change Roth made his pitch Ultimately the plan to boost immigration through sketchy means wasnt a match but Roth donated $20000 anyway In turn Roth asked Creamer if he could help his niece find a role at the political conventions Two officials now suspect this purported niece filmed Rodriguez in Cleveland and both expect she kept the cameras rolling while she volunteered three days a week for Creamer until last week A fourth known Veritas insider then entered the picture someone who was described as a financier from London That person met with Creamer offering to put together a plan that would give people jobs and company IDs in a state in which they did not live so that they could vote there Creamer was dubious "My fear is that someone would decide that this was a big voter-fraud scheme" he says on tape that suddenly ended as he seemed to be starting another sentence Foval later says on tape that Creamer called him "Im not going to touch that with a 10 foot pole now" Foval quoted Creamer saying Foval then tells Veritas that he responded "nor should you" But that comes more than 13 minutes into the 16-minute second filmlong after viewers are convinced they are watching Watergate unfold in real time The interim chairwoman of the DNC Donna Brazile said her organization was conducting an internal investigation "We do not believe or have any evidence to suggest that the activities articulated in the video actually occurred" Brazile said "The discredited source of these videos James OKeefe is a convicted criminal with a history of doctoring video to advance his ideological agenda" Indeed OKeefe has previously pleaded guilty to crimes related to other projects and settled civil suits against his targets Democrats immediately challenged some of his claims on this project with items as basic as calendars and employment contracts For instance Mobilize didnt sign a contract with the DNC until June 8 2016well after the March protest in Chicago Officials are working to match Foval’s exact employment dates with the venues when he might have been filmed And other progressive groups have already bragged about their roles organizing the protests in Chicago The protest was more a product of local groups and students at the University of Illinois-Chicago who spread the word about the Trump rally on social media A local student JaMal Green a local Bernie Sanders supporter and others recruited protesters on Facebook One activist started an online petition on MoveOnorg to shut down the Trump rally that garnered more than 50000 signatures A spokesman for MoveOn confirmed that local activists led the way in organizing the protest That may explain Rodriguezs connection WHAT COMES NEXT More videos are expected And OKeefe and his allies are cranking up pressure on reporters to share their work OKeefe said without offering evidence that the first video didnt get mainstream traction because Clintons team was looming with threats against those who would dare broadcast "Those televisions stations spiked the story at the last minute Our sources tell us the reason they did so was fear of retaliation and retribution from a future Hillary Clinton Administration" OKeefe said in a second video focused on voter fraud It is likely Trump leans on them when he confronts Clinton during their third and final debate on Wednesday in Las Vegas With reporting by Tessa Berenson and Sam Frizell Write to Philip Elliott at philipelliott@timecom He will formally be confirmed as the country’s leader

his wife Hope (Jena Malone) whose blindingly white teeth have been cleaned by Dr R Blatnoyd (Martin Short); Docs current sometime girlfriend Penny (Reese Witherspoon) from the DAs office; former runaway Japonica Fenway (Sasha Pieterse) whose father Crocker (Martin Donovan) has a business proposition for Doc;

the coke-snorting Dr Blatnoyd who drops trou as he pursues a female patient; and Bigfoots fondness for fellating outrageously phallic popsicles grape chocolate and banana Like him the movie could use a keeper Often shooting in medium closeup from below Anderson gives his actors plenty of time to chew on their lines and do double-take reactions A few turns stand out Some are notable just for showing up midway through Look theres Benicio Del Toro as Docs shady lawyer;

Hong Chau reveals a pert intelligence under the cover of a massage-parlor madam; and Donovan is splendid in his one scene as a power broken who lays out a world of evil for Docs edification Best of all is Waterston (daughter of Law & Orders Sam) as Shasta a beguiling flower child whos smarter and more cunning than she lets on In a sex-and-confession scene with Doc which lasts six-and-a-half minutes and is shot without a cut Waterston lends the movie as much human feeling and erotic tension as its ever going to accumulate For the rest of this 2hr28min jape youre advised to go with the flow Never quite transcending the sum of its agreeably disparate parts IV is less groovy than gnarled and goofy but in a studied way Call it an acquired taste with a kinky savor Contact us at editors@timecomGenetic testing kits you can do at home seem to be on many holiday wish lists this year; one even landed on Oprah’s list of favorite things The affordable kits like those from 23andMe and ancestrycom can scan your genes from a spit sample But its important to know what they can and cannot do when it comes to teaching you about your medical well-being Here are five things to knowbefore you ship off your salivaif you get a genetic testing kit for the holidays You won’t find out everything about your genes Most genetic testing companies dont actually sequence all three billion base pairs of your entire DNA They generally focus on certain sections where there is stronger information about what genetic changes mean Dont expect to learn if youre going to get cancer Any type of genetic testing from the consumer-based kits that anyone can buy to the versions that doctors order can only glean so much information from your DNA Medical conditions like cancer and heart disease are complex and not likely to be traced to a single aberration in DNA However there are some genetic variants that do link to a stronger chance for certain conditions In those cases having the genetic change doesnt ensure that you will develop the condition but could mean that you have a higher chance of getting the disease Because of such uncertainty in 2015 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) limited consumer genetic testing kits to testing only for genetic variants that have strong evidence linking them to disease The first was a change linked to a rare disease called Bloom syndrome which can increase the risk of cancer among other things The company now gives people the option of testing for genetic variants that can put them at higher risk of developing disease like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s for which there aren’t reliable treatments Even if the testing finds a variant linked to the disease it doesn’t mean that the person will absolutely develop that disease And conversely if the test if negative for the mutations it doesn’t necessarily mean that they won’t develop that condition Its worth remembering that doctors are far from knowing everything that the genome can tell us Even if they find that some genetic changes are associated with disease they dont know if those changes are the only ones needed to cause illness or if others are involved "We are in a steep curve of learning about the genome now" says Michael Watson executive director of the American College of Medical Genetics "Were hampered by not having a lot of data on a lot of different populations and conditions" You’ll learn more about where you came from Much of the appeal of getting your DNA sequenced is learning about how much of your genome you share with people from all over the world It is possible to discover a surprise Scottish heritage for example or even that you’re related to George Washington Genetic sequencing is particularly good at this since it can find common DNA denominators among people of different racial and ethnic origins Some people have even used genetic ancestry testing to find biological parents or lost relatives Your DNA may not be as private as you think Consumer testing companies will assure you that the genetic information they uncover from your saliva sample is protected And it is to some extent: they cant share your genetic information without your permission But there’s an exception Some companies note that if law enforcement requires them to relinquish genetic data the companies will comply Genetic testing companies will strip your personal informationyour name age address and email address along with whatever medical information you providefrom your genetic information when its stored But in the contract you sign the companies often include their right to sell their genetic databases to other companies (namely pharmaceutical drug makers) and for research purposes Such repositories of genetic information are becoming valuable assets for testing companies but you wont know exactly where or how your genetic information will be used You will also be asked what you want the company to do with your saliva sample You can ask the company to destroy it after they sequence your DNA but your DNA will still be part of their database You can also ask them to store the sample; some companies offer this option so they can re-sequence your genes when new information about interesting mutations becomes available Your DNA isnt your destiny For the most part your genes contribute tobut dont definewho you are Your genes may shape your personality athleticism or outlook but its often the combination of genes your experiences and what you are exposed to that ultimately determine your physical and psychological state If you want to learn from your DNA share your test results with a doctor who is knowledgeable about both genetics and the disease that you’re interested in “Genetic information at the moment is very unstable in the sense that we are still trying to build out our understanding of what the likelihood of getting a disease may be if you have a genetic variant” says Watson “So until we have that you have to be pretty well educated in the disease and in genetics to interpret those results” Correction: The original version of this story incorrectly described George Washingtons family He had no known biological children so while he does have relatives who are alive today he does not have any known direct descendants Contact us at editors@timecom coastal town in 1970.
