Ronaldo ends road scoring drought

first_imgROME (AP):Cristiano Ronaldo ended his away scoring drought with an impressive second-half goal as Real Madrid won 2-0 at Roma yesterday in the first leg of the Round of 16 in the Champions League.The victory also marked a successful debut for Zinedine Zidane as Madrid’s manager in the elite competition, with the 10-time champion taking a big step towards the quarter-finals.It was Ronaldo’s first goal on the road since November 29 when he scored a penalty against Eibar.”Everyone expects (Ronaldo) to score, and today, he was able to,” Zidane said. “I’m happy for these two away goals and that we didn’t concede any goals.”Shortly before the hour mark, Ronaldo collected a pass up the left flank from Marcelo, rapidly cut inside moving the ball with a deft flick of his legs and launched a powerful shot that deflected off Roma fullback Alessandro Florenzi.”He’s a player against whom you can’t concede anything. He can go right or left. It doesn’t matter which way,” Florenzi said. “I was also unlucky because I deflected the shot and the ball went in right under the crossbar.”After scoring, Ronaldo ran towards Zidane and hugged the French great, who replaced Rafa Benitez last month.Substitute Jese then sealed the victory with an angled shot four minutes from the end after Roma failed to take advantage of several opportunities for an equaliser.At the final whistle, Zidane congratulated each of his players one by one, including those who didn’t play.”I do it because the team is the most important thing,” said Zidane, who scored the winning goal for Madrid in the 2002 Champions League final against Bayer Leverkusen. “It’s the players who make the difference, and today it was Ronaldo – it’s often him – but everyone’s contribution is important, even those who don’t play much. We win all together.”The night’s other first-leg match saw Wolfsburg beat AA Ghent 3-2 in Belgium.last_img read more

Two South Africans injured in Boston

first_img16 April 2013Two explosions struck the Boston Marathon on Monday, turning a festive event on Patriots’ Day, a state holiday in Massachusetts, into a horrific tragedy.The runners were crossing the finish line when a powerful blast occurred behind spectators and a row of flags, sending a cloud of smoke almost 15 metres into the air.The explosion ripped through crowd-control barricades, knocking down several people and throwing onlookers as well as the approaching runners into blind panic.Three people were killed and over 100 injured in the blast. Two South Africans were reportedly among the injured.International Relations and Cooperation spokesperson Clayson Monyela said on Tuesday that 25 South Africans had registered for the marathon.“Our missions in the US are checking if more South Africans were affected by the explosions. We continue to monitor and check with hospitals and authorities,” Monyela said.He said his department would provide consular services to the South Africans in Boston.The international community has condemned the bombings which have forced many US cities to step up security.UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon said the bombing “is all the more appalling for taking place at an event renowned for bringing people together from around the world in a spirit of sportsmanship and harmony.”Ban called the Boston Marathon explosions “senseless violence”.“For now I just wanted to say that my thoughts are with everyone in Boston,” Ban said, expressing his deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wishing those wounded a speedy recovery.While some US media and experts started to use the phrase “terrorist bombings”, President Barack Obama remained cautious and avoided calling the blasts a terror attack.Obama said his government did not yet have “all the answers” about the Boston explosions, but vowed to hold all those behind them accountable.He said the government had taken steps to beef up security across the country.Source: SAnews.gov.za-Xinhualast_img read more

My connected coop brings all the chickens to the IoT

Well, for Greg Cullen, the founder and CEO of My Connected Coop, it does.My Connected Coop is an IoT solution for chicken owners that want to find an easier way to raise chickens. After all, as far as animals go, chickens are a great resource to have. They lay eggs, are fun to watch, and roosters will even wake you up in the morning as the sun rises.Unfortunately, we don’t always know or trust where or how the chickens we enjoy are raised. Are the eggs you eat for breakfast coming from an unhappy factory farm chicken? What does cage-free really mean, anyway?Backyard coops are becoming a popular choice for animal lovers and fresh egg enthusiasts alike.Chickens need to be safely stored in their coop at night, and able to roam the yard during the day. This makes chickens safe and happy. Happy chickens produce delicious eggs – or at least eggs you can feel  less guilty for eating.For many chicken owners, this means opening and closing the door by hand. Let’s say you want to enjoy chickens without having to run out there every day to open and close their gate. My Connected Coop is a promising solution to enable you to do that.What is My Connected Coop?My Connected Coop is a wooden chicken coop, with a twist. It is an automated, Internet-enabled coop that makes raising chickens easy.It includes a night-vision camera that gives you a real-time glimpse at your chickens.A button in the mobile app gives you the ability to open and close the gate, letting your chickens roam. The coop even sends updated temperature and humidity numbers from the coop to the app.Cullen recently said to ChicagoInno, “The hardest part is opening the gate in the morning and closing it at night and now you can do that from your phone. You could actually leave for two weeks and take care of your chickens remotely.”My Connected Coop is available for pre-order, with its technology packages priced at $350. A complete kit including everything you need to build your coop is $1,350. Pre-orders are expected to start shipping this summer.

Researchers identify cause of inherited metabolic disorder

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 16 2019A new study from BC Children’s Hospital, the University of British Columbia (UBC) and an international team of researchers published in the New England Journal of Medicine is the first to identify a rarely-seen type of DNA mutation as the cause of an inherited metabolic disorder.Inherited metabolic disorders — where the body can’t break down specific nutrients from food leading to a range of serious health problems — are often caused by a defective gene.In this important study, researchers found an unusual genetic mutation behind three children’s undiagnosed, degenerative conditions: a repeat expansion of DNA. In this specific mutation, the gene appears undamaged but does not function because the DNA adjacent to it has extended several hundred times its normal length.”To detect this kind of DNA multiplication, you can only use whole genome sequencing and have to search through billions of pieces of DNA; it’s truly a search for the needle in the haystack,” said lead author Dr. Clara van Karnebeek. “With our new approach we have finally solved our mystery cases, and we now expect to find the genetic cause of other, as of yet unexplained, genetic metabolic diseases.”To date, DNA repeat expansions have been linked to approximately 30 different diseases.”For kids with rare diseases and their families, finding the root causes of their disorders is tremendously important,” said Dr. Wyeth Wasserman, a co-author of the study. “A diagnosis gives us the potential to intervene, relieves undeserved parental guilt, and provides insights into more common diseases.”For a child with an unexplained medical condition, a diagnosis lays the groundwork for further research that could lead to new interventions such as gene therapy aimed at “turning on” the impaired gene, dietary modification or supplements that provide the nutrients the body is missing. Effective treatment can slow or stop damaging symptoms, improving the quality of life of children with rare disorders and their families.In this study, initial work by van Karnebeek and her research team narrowed the search for the genetic causes of this rare disorder to key areas of the genome. However, after further investigations using exome sequencing and whole genome sequencing, the international research team couldn’t pinpoint the error in the DNA.Related StoriesMolecular switches may control lifespan and healthspan separately, genetic discovery suggestsFungal infection study identifies specific genetic vulnerability among Hmong peopleResearchers identify gene mutations linked to leukemia in children with Down’s syndromeIt’s here that researchers at BC Children’s took a novel approach. Through in-depth, manual analysis and the use of emerging bioinformatics tools and techniques study co-authors Dr. Britt Drögemöller and Phillip Richmond discovered and confirmed that the gene responsible for the disorder was intact but a repeat expansion error prevented it from functioning.”In our search, we focused on variations that would have been hard to discover through exome sequencing” said Drögemöller. “After months of experimenting with various different analyses, we finally uncovered this novel genetic variant by using new targeted approaches aimed at identifying DNA repeat expansions.””These findings were made possible by a multidisciplinary approach and advances in technology, techniques and software,” said Richmond. “It wouldn’t have been possible as recently as two years ago and, most importantly, it shows us what to look for in other undiagnosed cases.”The gene identified as the cause of this particular disorder is an enzyme that enables the body to turn an amino acid called glutamine into glutamate. More work is needed to determine how exactly this genetic error leads to disease, but it’s likely that either a build-up of glutamine or the lack of glutamate caused the children’s serious developmental delays and disabilities including difficulty with language, speech, balance and coordination.Through collaborations with sequencing consortiums around the world, researchers were able to confirm that this particular repeat expansion was found in only 1 in 8,000 people, establishing the mutation as very rare.Over one million Canadians suffer from a rare disease and in over 50 per cent of these cases, the underlying genetic cause of the illness remains unknown.”We can do better for children with rare diseases. For the 50 per cent who can’t find answers, this discovery and new approach will help us dig in and potentially find the causes of their disease,” said Richmond.

Pliable microbatteries for wearables

first_img Flexible batteries a highlight for smart dental aids In its development of batteries for wearables, Fraunhofer IZM combines new approaches and years of experience with a customer-tailored development process: “We work with companies to develop the right battery for them,” explains the graduate electrical engineer. The team consults closely with customers to draw up the energy requirements. They carefully adapt parameters such as shape, size, voltage, capacity and power and combined them to form a power supply concept. The team also carries out customer-specific tests.Smart plaster to measure sweatIn 2018, the institute began work on a new wearable technology, the smart plaster. Together with Swiss sensor manufacturer Xsensio, this EU-sponsored project aims to develop a plaster that can directly measure and analyze the patient’s sweat. This can then be used to draw conclusions about the patient’s general state of health. In any case, having a convenient, real-time analysis tool is the ideal way to better track and monitor healing processes. Fraunhofer IZM is responsible for developing the design concept and energy supply system for the sweat measurement sensors. The plan is to integrate sensors that are extremely flat, light and flexible. This will require the development of various new concepts. One idea, for instance, would be an encapsulation system made out of aluminum composite foil. The researchers also need to ensure they select materials that are inexpensive and easy to dispose of. After all, a plaster is a disposable product. Fabrication of micro batteries with side-by side electrodes on silicon wafer. Credit: Fraunhofer IZM Explore further Success through segmentationRobert Hahn, a researcher in Fraunhofer IZM’s department for RF & Smart Sensor Systems, explains why segmentation is the recipe for success: “If you make a battery extremely pliable, it will have very poor energy density – so it’s much better to adopt a segmented approach.”Instead of making the batteries extremely pliable at the cost of energy density and reliability, the institute turned its focus to designing very small and powerful batteries and optimized mounting technology. The batteries are pliable in between segments. In other words, the smart band is flexible while retaining a lot more power than other smart wristbands available on the market. Citation: Pliable micro-batteries for wearables (2018, October 1) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-10-pliable-micro-batteries-wearables.html In medicine, wearables are used to collect data without disturbing patients as they go about their daily business – to record long-term ECGs, for instance. Since the sensors are light, flexible and concealed in clothing, this is a convenient way to monitor a patient’s heartbeat. The technology also has more everyday applications – fitness bands, for instance, that measure joggers’ pulses while out running. There is huge growth potential in the wearables sector, which is expected to reach a market value of 72 billion euros by 2020.How to power these smart accessories poses a significant technical challenge. There are the technical considerations – durability and energy density – but also material requirements such as weight, flexibility and size, and these must be successfully combined. This is where Fraunhofer IZM comes in: experts at the institute have developed a prototype for a smart wristband that, quite literally, collects data first hand. The silicone band’s technical piece de resistance is its three gleaming green batteries. Boasting a capacity of 300 milliampere hours, these batteries are what supply the wristband with power. They can store energy of 1.1 watt hours and lose less than three percent of their charging capacity per year. With these parameters the new prototype has a much higher capacity than smart bands available at the market so far, enabling it to supply even demanding portable electronics with energy. The available capacity is actually sufficient to empower a conventional smart watch at no runtime loss. With these sorts of stats, the prototype beats established products such as smart watches, in which the battery is only built into the watch casing and not in the strap. There is a new technology gripping the markets of the future – technology to wear. Wearables, as they are known, are portable systems that contain sensors to collect measurement data from our bodies. Powering these sensors without wires calls for pliable batteries that can adapt to the specific material and deliver the power the system requires. Micro-batteries developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM provide the technical foundation for this new technology trend.

12000 Years Ago a Boy Had His Skull Squashed into a Cone

first_img An excavation at the site during 2010. Credit: Lixin Wang The 25 Most Mysterious Archaeological Finds on Earth Even though the Houtaomuga man is the oldest known case of ICM in history, it’s a mystery whether other known instances of ICM spread from this group, or whether they rose independently of one another, Wang said. “It is still too early to claim intentional cranial modification first emerged in East Asia and spread elsewhere; it may have originated independently in different places,” Wang said. More ancient DNA research and skull examinations throughout the world may shed light on this practice’s spread, he said. The study was published online June 25 in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. Archaeologists have found reshaped human skulls all around the world, from every inhabited continent. But this particular finding, if confirmed, “will [be] the earliest evidence of the intentional head modification, which lasted for 7,000 years at the same site after its first emergence,” Wang told Live Science. The 11 ICM individuals died between ages 3 and 40, indicating that skull shaping began at a young age, when human skulls are still malleable, Wang said. It’s unclear why this particular culture practiced skull modification, but it’s possible that fertility, social status and beauty could be factors, Wang said. The people with ICM buried at Houtaomuga were likely from a privileged class, as these individuals tended to have grave goods and funeral decorations. “Apparently, these youth were treated with a decent funeral, which might suggest a high socioeconomic class,” Wang said. 25 Grisly Archaeological Discoveries The M72 skull is between 6,300 and 5,500 years old. Credit: Qian Wang Back to the Stone Age: 17 Key Milestones in Paleolithic Life Ancient people in China practiced human head-shaping about 12,000 years ago — meaning they bound some children’s maturing skulls, encouraging the heads to grow into elongated ovals — making them the oldest group on record to purposefully squash their skulls, a new study finds. While excavating a Neolithic site (the last period of the Stone Age) at Houtaomuga, Jilin province, in northeast China, the archaeologists found 11 elongated skulls — belonging to both males and females and ranging from toddlers to adults — that showed signs of deliberate skull reshaping, also known as intentional cranial modification (ICM). “This is the earliest discovery of signs of intentional head modification in Eurasia continent, perhaps in the world,” said study co-researcher Qian Wang, an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the Texas A&M University College of Dentistry. “If this practice began in East Asia, it likely spread westward to the Middle East, Russia and Europe through the steppes as well as eastward across the Bering land bridge to the Americas.” [In Images: An Ancient Long-headed Woman Reconstructed]Headbutting Tiny Worms Are Really, Really LoudThis rapid strike produces a loud ‘pop’ comparable to those made by snapping shrimps, one of the most intense biological sounds measured at sea.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Why Is It ‘Snowing’ Salt in the Dead Sea?01:53 facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65901-china-oldest-skull-shaping.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0000:3500:35  The Houtaomuga site is a treasure trove, holding burials and artifacts from 12,000 to 5,000 years ago. During an excavation there between 2011 and 2015, archaeologists found the remains of 25 individuals, 19 of which were preserved enough to be studied for ICM. After putting these skulls in a CT scanner, which produced 3D digital images of each specimen, the researchers confirmed that 11 had indisputable signs of skull shaping, such as flattening and elongation of the frontal bone, or forehead. The oldest ICM skull belonged to an adult male, who lived between 12,027 and 11,747 years ago, according to radiocarbon dating.

(File)HIGHLIGHTSMehul Choksi says he couldn’t send documents due to untimely typhoon Antigua and BarbudaMehul Choksi said once the situation came under control, he sent the documents through courier on June 24Fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi is an accused in PNB fraud caseFugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi, accused in the PNB fraud case, has claimed that he was unable to send documents to his lawyer in Bombay to challenge a court’s January order in the Bombay High Court within the mandated 30 days due to an “untimely typhoon” in Antigua and Barbuda.A special court in Mumbai had in January dismissed applications filed by Mehul Choksi for cross-examination of witnesses in the Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case.After the plea was dismissed, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) looked to declare Choksi a Fugitive Economic Offenders under the Fugitive Economic Offenders (FEO) Act.Mehul Choksi is at present based in the Caribbean nation of Antigua. India has sought his extradition from that country and an Interpol arrest warrant has also been issued against him.In an application filed in the Bombay High Court, Mehul Choksi said he was unable to courier the required legal documents due to typhoon and so wanted to now challenged the order in the high court.”It wasn’t easy for the applicant and his counsel to co-ordinate with each other and take necessary and immediate recourse for filing of the present application. However, the counsel took all possible efforts to co- ordinate with the applicant and get the signed vakalatnamas from Antigua. However, the counsel failed to get vakalatnamas within the limitation period due to untimely typhoon at Antigua which created chaos and also interrupted the courier service,” Mehul Choksi’s application stated.Mehul Choksi added that once the situation in Antigua came under control, he sent the documents through courier service on June 24.Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi are the two key accused wanted by the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation for allegedly defrauding the Punjab National Bank (PNB) to the tune of Rs 13,400 crore in collusion with a few employees of the government-run lender.The multi-crore fraud came to light in early 2018. Both Mehul Choksi and Nirav Modi had fled the country before that. On July 8 last year, when Mehul Choksi landed in Antigua’s capital St John’s, he used his newly obtained Antiguan passport for the first time and acquired the citizenship.On Thursday, ED attached assets worth Rs 24.77 crore in India and abroad of fugitive diamond jeweller Mehul Choksi, accused in the fraud case.The attached properties include three commercial assets based in Dubai, a Mercedes Benz car and a number of fixed deposits in bank accounts in the country and outside, the agency said. The total value of the attached properties is Rs 24.77 crore, it said.(with inputs from Munish Chandra)READ | ED attaches Dubai properties of Mehul Choksi worth Rs 24.77 croreWATCH | Choksi will soon be extradited to India?For the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
