Canadian Blood Services renews call for donations ahead of slow summer months

first_imgVANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – If you’ve always intended to donate blood, but just never got around to it, now’s the time to give.It’s National Blood Donor Week in Canada, and Canadian Blood Services is asking you to roll up your sleeves.“I think there’s many people who have never really maybe faced the challenge of a friend or a family member needing blood, so they don’t really realize how important the need is,” the organization’s David Patterson, with the B.C. chapter, says. “In Canada, although one-in-two people is eligible to donate blood, only four per cent of Canadians actually donate blood.”Canadian Blood Services says it needs 100,000 new donors to sign up this year in order to meet demand.Patterson says the need is particularly acute during the summer months.“I think summer’s the time when people take time away from work, from their regular obligations, and spend more time with friends and family,” he explains. “Maybe they’re traveling, and sometimes they’re unable to make their regular donation period.”As the country marks National Blood Donor Week, the organization has also launched a new online tool for those affected by blood donation to share their stories.Patterson notes it’s still early on in the year, and while he admits they’re not close to their target yet, the Canadian Blood Services is making headway.Blood typesWhile all types of blood are needed, Patterson notes the blood that is normally in challenging supply is O-.“The most important blood for us to collect is O-, and that’s because it can be given to anybody. O- is the universal donor.”That means anyone can receive O- blood. Patterson says if someone’s rushed to the emergency department and is in need of a transfusion, they can be safely given O- blood, regardless of their blood type.RestrictionsWhile changes have been made over the years, some policies still restrict certain groups of people from donating as easily as others do.In May, the federal government announced that men who have sex with men would be able to give blood after a deferral period of three months, down from a year. The move, while applauded by some, has been criticized by others who say the change doesn’t go far enough.For anyone worried about their eligibility to give blood, Patterson recommends calling Canadian Blood Services to find out.“I would say, certainly, there are policies in place, because really what we’re talking about is the safety and security of our blood supply,” he says. “Our primary goal is to provide a safe unit for patients.”He notes the rules are changing “all the time,” which is why he recommends reaching out to the organization to make sure you can give blood.You can head to Canadian Blood Services’ website to find a location to donate.-With files from Sonia Aslamlast_img read more

Ban warns of cultural dimension in world conflicts urging unlearning of stereotypes

28 May 2010With three-quarters of the world’s major conflicts having a cultural dimension, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called for accelerated steps to bridge the divides, from eliminating feelings of racial or religious superiority to “unlearning” stereotypes. “In communities where symbols of religious minorities are seen as something to oppose or fear, we need continued engagement,” he told the Alliance of Civilizations, a five-year-old Spanish-Turkish initiative set up under UN auspices to overcome prejudice among nations, cultures and religions, as it opened its third forum in Rio de Janeiro.“In places where people are screened out of opportunity because of race, faith or even their name, we have more work to do,” he said while praising the Alliance – which now includes 100 Member States – for work already accomplished in a bid to break down barriers such as bringing journalists together from around the globe to confront prejudice and misunderstanding, including the first-of-its-kind joint reporting from Israel and the Arab world.The Alliance has also expanded dialogue for young people of different ethnicities in Burundi, scene of decades of ethnic violence that killed tens of thousands of people, promoted mediation and conflict resolution in South Asia, mentored in immigrant neighbourhoods in Europe and provided jobs for young people throughout the Middle East and North Africa.“All this is impressive. But it is only a start. The Alliance is a process, a work in progress,” Mr. Ban declared, stressing the need to find answers “to some of the most urgent issues of our day: How do we build inclusive societies? How can we strengthen education and empower women? How do we drown out the siren songs that divert young people to extremism?” He underscored the prime importance of education, stressing that education is more than learning. “Sometimes it is also unlearning,” he said. “We must let go of the stereotypes of the monolithic ‘other.’ We must put an end to labels that do more to divide than define.”Turning to globalization, which can both connect and alienate, he warned that “fears and hatred are just a mouse click away.” The gains of globalization are more visible – but so, too, is the feeling among many that those benefits are out of reach, he added. “In many places around the world, such fears cause people to retreat away from ‘globalization’ into an extreme ‘localization’ – one that sends the message: ‘Our way is best.’ Or worse, ‘There is no other way but my way.’”He noted that all too often division sells. “It wins votes. It gets ratings. It is much easier to blame others than to think for oneself,” he said, calling for greater understanding that “we are a single global family with many members and no monoliths. “We are not there yet. The journey is long.” Several hundred political and business leaders and representatives of civil society are attending the two-day forum, during which UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Director-General Irina Bokova and Mr. Ban’s High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, Jorge Sampaio, signed an agreement setting goals for the next two years with a particular focus on intercultural exchanges among the young. “The diversity of the world’s cultures is our wealth and our future,” Ms. Bokova said ahead of the forum. “It is high time to increase our investment in cultural diversity and dialogue for development. This is long term work. The challenges are great but the rewards are greater.”Following the opening of the Forum, the Secretary-General met with Brazil’s President, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, and, separately, with other dignitaries attending the event. read more

OSC orders two Canadians at centre of alleged international penny stock fraud

TORONTO — Two Canadian men at the centre of an alleged international penny stock fraud have been ordered by a provincial tribunal to pay more than $1-million in penalties for breaking Ontario securities law.The Ontario Securities Commission also said Sandy Winick and Gregory Curry are permanently banned from securities trading, being an investment dealer, fund manager, director or corporate officer of any company.The sanctions are related to three separate schemes involving securities of BFM Industries Inc., Liquid Gold International Corp. and Nanotech Industries Inc.OSC commissioner James Carnwath ruled in a 14-page decision released Tuesday that Winick committed “a series of acts including the illegal distribution and unregistered trading of securities.“Winick engaged in an ongoing course of deceitful and fraudulent conduct designed to personally enrich himself at the expense of innocent investors,” Carnwath wrote.Winick is also facing criminal charges in the United States, accused by the U.S. Attorney’s office of being the leading figure in fraud schemes involving US$140-million and spanning dozens of countries including Canada and tens of thousands of victims.Curry is also facing U.S. criminal charges based on allegations filed in August by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the eastern district of New York.The U.S. charges are still before the courts.The OSC’s ruling, which doesn’t make any mention of the U.S. allegations, deals with three schemes that were allegedly carried out between May 2009 to December 2010.“During that time, the respondents’ violations of Ontario securities law were widespread and were contrary to public interest,” according to the OSC decision.“The three schemes of the respondents required multiple bank accounts and involved several companies.”The OSC alleges that the BFM scheme involved 28 foreign investors, while the Liquid Gold scheme involved at least four investors.The third scheme, involved a letter that was sent to 10,000 international addresses, allegedly contained misleading statements regarding Nanotech’s share price and warrant offers.Nanotech had been dissolved in March 2009, but was represented as a ongoing company in the letter, said the OSC.In relation to the schemes, the regulator alleges that a total of $2.6-million was taken from the bank accounts of BFM and Liquid Gold, and used for Winick’s “personal benefit” including to pay off his credit cards, personal taxes and hydro bills.Curry is alleged to have received US$78,000 from Winick and a company which Winick’s wife acted as director and officer.Winick is ordered to pay an administrative penalty of $750,000 to the OSC, and give up $281,200 of illegal profits. Curry is ordered to pay a $150,000 administrative penalty and must return $78,000 in illegal profits.The OSC also ordered Winick and Curry to pay $50,000 for costs incurred by the commission.In August, the two men were arrested in Thailand, accused of being involved in a massive penny stock fraud scheme that bilked investors in the United States and other countries of more than US$140 million.The scheme was allegedly masterminded by Winick and Curry, and two other Canadians — Gregory Ellis, 46, and Kolt Curry, 38 — and carried out with the help of five Americans. The cases are before the U.S. courts.The arrests last summer were the result of a multi-year investigation involving the FBI and the RCMP, relying on wiretaps in the U.S. and undercover agents abroad.The indictment alleges that the defendants were involved in a massive “pump and dump” scheme — buying controlling interests in sketchy startup companies, then artificially inflating their value by promoting them in fictitious emails, social media messages and news releases.In some cases, it’s alleged some members of the ring pretended to work for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.— With files from Paola Loriggio read more

Dorel foresees weaker juvenile results in 2013 due in part to US

MONTREAL – Dorel Industries expects its juvenile business will be weaker this year as it continues to face softer consumer demand and feels the financial effects of a U.S. jury award related to a 2008 accident in which a child travelling in one of its car seats was seriously injured.The Montreal-based company (TSX:DII.B) was ordered by a Mississippi jury in September to pay half of a US$52-million judgment to the family of a child injured in a drunk driver crash in 2008.Most of Dorel’s liability is covered by insurance, but its third-quarter results were affected by an $8.5-million ($4.9 million after-tax) provision for the lawsuit.“Dorel spends millions annually in product development and testing to ensure that our products are of the highest quality. This has always been of up most importance to us,” president and CEO Martin Schwartz said Thursday during a conference call to discuss its third-quarter results.The company said it has launched an appeal to the state’s Supreme Court, arguing the trial process was flawed. Based on its lawyers evaluation, Schwartz said Dorel is confident the judgment will either be overturned, the assessed liability reduced or a new trial ordered.While the company doesn’t expect the juvenile segment, which also makes strollers and other baby products, will surpass last year’s results, it foresees a stronger performance for its recreational and leisure segment in the fourth quarter in spite of independent bike dealers being cautious about purchases for the holiday season because of last spring’s poor weather.Most of its optimism is centred on Latin America following the acquisition in August of a 70 per cent stake in Caloi, Brazil’s largest bicycle manufacture, for US$73 million. Caloi contributed US$1.3 million in profit on US$16 million of revenue in the third quarter.Overall, Dorel said it expects the operating profit for the fourth quarter will be higher than the third quarter, setting the stage “for an improved 2014,” Schwartz told analysts.Dorel’s net income plummeted by almost half to US$11.1 million in the third quarter on lower revenues and charges for both core divisions — juvenile and recreational and leisure. The company also operates a home furnishings division.Reporting in U.S. dollars, Dorel said it earned 34 cents per diluted share for the period ended Sept. 30, down from 63 cents per share or $20 million a year earlier.The results included $9.4 million in one-time charges, including $4.5 million related to currency losses on the Caloi acquisition and the jury award provision.Excluding these one-time costs, Dorel (TSX:DII.B) earned $20.5 million or 64 cents per share.Revenues fell to $607.3 million from $613.3 million a year earlier as contributions from its majority stake in Caloi were more than offset by the impact of a slower retail environment for its juvenile products in some European and North American markets.Dorel was expected to earn 59 cents per share in adjusted net income on $615.7 million of revenues, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.“These results are not acceptable,” Schwartz said, adding that the results are somewhat masked by the charges.“Thus far it has been a challenging year in our core businesses of juvenile and bikes. We’ve been making the required adjustments which include a focus on new product development.”After a weak second quarter, its recreation/leisure division rebounded in the third quarter with operating profits increasing 12 per cent to $14.1 million on $231.6 million of revenues.Juvenile profits decreased to $5 million from $16.9 million a year ago on a 4.1 per cent dip in revenues to $239 million.Home furnishings was steady, earning $5.8 million on $136.7 million in revenue.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Dorel’s shares were up three cents at $39.14 in afternoon trading Thursday.

UN and partners launch campaign to tackle new fungus strain threatening worlds

Read full story AUDIO: FAO’s agricultural officer Fazil Dusunceli talks about the new strain of fungus that is threatening one of the world’s most favourite fruits. The world’s most traded fruit is being threatened by a new, “insidious” fungus strain that poses risks to banana production and could cause vast commercial losses or even greater damage to the 400 million people who rely on bananas as a staple food or source of income, the United Nations agriculture agency warned Wednesday. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has launched with its partners – Bioversity International, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture and World Banana Forum – a global programme requiring $98 million to contain and manage the new Tropical Race 4 strain (TR4strain) of Fusarium wilt, an insidious disease that can last for years in soils and can hitchhike to new fields and destinations through various means, such as infected planting materials, water, shoes, farm tools and vehicles. “This is a major threat to banana production in several regions of the world,” said Hans Dreyer, Director of FAO’s Plant Production and Protection Division, in a news statement. Fusarium wilt TR4 was first detected in Southeast Asia in the 1990s and has now been identified at 19 sites in 10 countries – including the Near East, South Asia and Mozambique in sub-Saharan Africa. “We need to move quickly to prevent its further spread from where it is right now and to support already affected countries in their efforts to cope with the disease,” he emphasized. Without a coordinated intervention, scientists estimate that by 2040, the disease could affect up to 1.6 million hectares of banana lands, representing one-sixth of the current global production, valued at about $10 billion annually. The programme is initially targeting 67 countries, aiming to reduce the potentially affected area by up to 60 per cent. “The long-term resilience of banana production systems can only be improved through continuous monitoring, robust containment strategies, strengthening national capacities and enhancing international collaboration to deploy integrated disease management approaches,” Mr. Dreyer explained. The five-year programme is designed to build on existing initiatives tackling the disease and strengthen local technical capacities. It will also support developing science-based technologies and tools through researching the fungus’ biology and epidemiology, its detection and the development of resistant cultivars, among other things. For areas where the disease is not present or first appears, inspection, surveillance and rapid response measures will be developed. Where it already occurs, improved and integrated disease management techniques will be developed along with the search for and deployment of resistant varieties. If effectively rolled out, it is estimated that every dollar invested in the programme today will produce benefits of between $98 and $196 in 20 years’ time, according to FAO.More on Fusarium wilt TR4The fungus is caused by a new variant of the disease that had decimated Gros Michel banana type plantations in the early 20th century, causing more than $2 billion in damages and leading to its replacement with the Cavendish variety, which though resistant to the earlier strain has now succumbed to the new TR4 race. The TR4 – which so far has impacted nearly 100,000 hectares according to estimations of scientists, which accounts for around half the bananas grown today, but also other cultivars that constitute key nutritional staples. According to FAO, the “insidious” fungus poses major risks to global banana production and could cause vast commercial losses and even greater damage to the livelihoods of the 400 million people who rely on the world’s most traded fruit as a staple food or source of income.“We need to move quickly to prevent its further spread from where it is right now and to support already affected countries in their efforts to cope with the disease,” said Hans Dreyer, Director of FAO’s Plant Production and Protection Division. He stressed that the resilience of banana production systems can only be improved through continuous monitoring, robust containment measures, strengthening local capacities and enhancing global collaboration. Fusarium wilt TR4 was first detected in Southeast Asia in the 1990s and has now been identified at 19 sites in 10 countries, including the Near East, South Asia and Mozambique in sub-Saharan Africa.

Baseball Ohio States top reliever Seth Kinker named secondteam AllAmerican

Senior reliever Seth Kinker snags a comeback hit to finish off Ohio State’s 5-4 win against Indiana on April 21. Credit: Mac Connor | Ohio State AthleticsSeth Kinker has a unique philosophy for a pitcher: he can’t get sore if he’s always pitching.If the Ohio State baseball team were to have a game every day of the week, Kinker would want the ball in each of those games. He believes that if he pitches back-to-back days, his arm will only feel better. It’s when he has extended days off that his arm starts to feel what he calls “second-day soreness.”And given his success, head coach Greg Beals would seem likely to want to give him the ball each one of those days. Kinker has been the most dominant pitcher for Ohio State the past three years, and that success was rewarded when it was revealed Thursday morning that he had been named a second team All-American by Collegiate Baseball.“Really happy for Seth,” Beals said in a press release. “He means so much to the success of our team. We are here in a regional in large part to the year Kinker had on the mound.”Kinker turned in his best season on the mound in 2018, recording a minute 1.49 ERA over 60.1 innings with a 59-to-5 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He was among the best pitchers in the Big Ten, with his ERA ranked the lowest among qualifying pitchers, his .213 opposing batting average ranked second-lowest, his 15 saves tied for second and only teammate Kyle Michalik appeared in more games. He has not been an ordinary closer for Ohio State this season, however. Beals has turned to him before as early as the seventh inning and had him close the game out from there. He pitched in Ohio State’s 2-1 extra-inning win against California State University, Northridge, arriving from the bullpen in the eighth inning and delivered 4.2 scoreless innings to secure the win.“I don’t always know what the result of that back end’s going to be,but I know who’s going to be pitching for us,” Beals said Monday. “When we get to the eighth or the ninth inning, the seventh inning a few times and I call Kinker’s name, from a defensive standpoint, my job’s kind of done. We’ve handed the ball to our guy and we’re in position [to win].”He added that for a time especially in tournament play where the value of each individual game is amplified due to the tough situation a team can be put in after a loss. When Beals needs his team to win, it becomes “incredibly valuable” to have someone as reliable as Kinker with whom Beals can place his full trust.That ability for Kinker to give Ohio State multiple shutdown innings proved valuable in the Big Ten tournament, when he threw three shutout innings against Iowa to seal the 2-0 win for Ohio State and then pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings against Michigan the next day to help Ohio State advance to the semi-finals in back-to-back elimination games.To recover from his three-inning, 50-pitch outing against Iowa, Kinker took “a very long nap,” ate dinner with his family “and then I came back and I chugged water.” Nothing special, but it aided him in staying ready for the next game his team played against Michigan.“I avoid that second-day recovery so my arm felt better after the Michigan game — that Minnesota day — than it did the Michigan day,” Kinker said.His work is far from over. Exactly one week from the team’s win against Michigan, Ohio State will be playing second-seeded South Carolina at 2 p.m. Friday in the first game of the Greenville, North Carolina, regional in the NCAA tournament. read more

Double Fines next game Stacking is a puzzle adventure starring Depressionera Russian

first_imgTim Schaefer‘s Double Fine is one of my favorite gaming companies, but its first two major games, while both cult classics, didn’t go over too well commercially. Both Psychonauts and Brutal Legend were broad and inventive in scope, but ultimately, this boundary pushing didn’t pay off in sales.After teetering on the brink of ruin, Double Fine has since reinvented itself as a maker of smaller, charming and family-friendly games for Xbox Live. Last month’s Costume Quest is already one of the most winsome games to come out this year, and it’s Double Fine’s most successful game to date, and now Double Fine looks ready to try the formula again with Stacking, an upcoming downloadable game based entirely around the world of matryoshkas, or Russian nesting dolls.An adventure puzzler, Stacking follows Charlie Blackmore, a Russian nesting doll, as he navigates a matryoshka’s world set against a 1930’s era backdrop. The goal of the game is eponymous: navigate obstacles and solve puzzles by using various nesting dolls (each with their own unique abilities) and stacking them in different ways.It sounds like another winning entry in Double Fine’s game library. Stacking will hit Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network sometime in Spring 2011.Read more at IGNlast_img read more

Analysis How outstanding Ulster almost shocked reigning champions Leinster

first_imgAnalysis: How outstanding Ulster almost shocked reigning champions Leinster Dan McFarland’s side were brilliant but came up just short in Dublin on Saturday night. https://the42.ie/4570778 36 Comments IT’S BEEN ENCOURAGING to see Ulster’s players taking some pride from their performance against Leinster in their various social media updates since Saturday night.In an age where winning is everything, Ulster’s willingness to acknowledge their superb effort at the Aviva Stadium has been welcome. Ulster were left devastated by a narrow defeat. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHODan McFarland’s men have major regrets, certainly, and there was devastation at coming up short but they played a starring role in one of the greatest inter-provincial games ever.The nature of sport is that fleeting moments – a dropped ball, a missed tackle, a lineout failing, a flicker of poor discipline – can decide a game and Ulster came out on the wrong side of those fine margins in this Champions Cup quarter-final against the reigning champions.However, having been underdogs for this contest, McFarland’s side delivered a brilliant performance that underlines that their revival this season is very real.With strong recruitment incoming in the shape of Sam Carter, Matt Faddes, Jack McGrath and others, Ulster fans have every right to be positive for the future. The display against Leinster highlighted that Ulster are already a competitive, intelligent, physical and skilful force at their best.Statement of physicalitySimilarly to England’s win over Ireland in the Six Nations at this same venue, Ulster’s early physicality set the tone for their performance.The very first Ulster tackle of the game saw Iain Henderson hammering Sean O’Brien.Click here if you cannot view the clip above Henderson is a talismanic figure for Ulster and his fitness was key in this game.The power in Henderson’s tackle here is symbolic of the dogged physicality Ulster brought to many of their other 250 tackles in this game.The Henderson tackle above is one of leadership, setting a standard that his team-mates willingly matched over this first set of defence, ending in a superb turnover for captain Rory Best after Ulster refused to give up the gainline to Leinster.Breakdown competitionOut-half Ross Byrne is the man to carry the ball for Leinster just before Best’s steal, with Nick Timoney first into the tackle.Click here if you cannot view the clip aboveByrne makes an initial impact into Timoney’s tackle, but Henderson [circled in white below] arrives in high to wrestle the Leinster playmaker.Using his excellent upper body strength, Henderson takes control of the tackle, pulling Byrne down to the right and onto the ground on his back as Timoney ensures the Leinster out-half cannot offer more leg drive.Henderson’s intervention means that the arriving Rhys Ruddock has nothing in front of him to hit and he ends up simply falling to ground to the right of the contest [yellow below].As we can see above, Henderson’s wrestling has left Byrne on his back, with the ball totally exposed.With Ruddock out of the game, Best [red] can clearly identify the opportunity and Henderson buys him additional split seconds by staying firmly wrapped around Byrne, not allowing him to move on the ground and get the ball further back on Leinster’s side.Best’s speed to the ball [red below] beats the slightly sluggish Leinster reaction to the threat.Jordan Larmour [blue above] has come from Leinster’s right-hand side of the tackle and has to ensure he gets past Timoney, meaning he loses the race to the ball and Best gets locked into the jackal position before the Leinster fullback can attempt to clear him out.Scrum-half Luke McGrath [number nine above] might have hit the breakdown too, but instead attempts to recover the ball, which Best has beaten him to.Best is able to make a clean steal and with Eric O’Sullivan, Timoney and Jordi Murphy flooding forward to support him, Ulster have a crucial early turnover.John Cooney had another vital breakdown turnover for Ulster in the second half but even when they didn’t make steals, they did a superb job of slowing and spoiling Leinster possession at the breakdown in this game – with Marcell Coetzee prominent.Carrying powerDirectly after this Best turnover, we saw Ulster’s early statement of physicality continue as Stuart McCloskey made the northern province’s first attacking carry of the game.Click here if you cannot view the clip above Cian Healy is more accustomed to being the man to steamroll opposition defenders, but McCloskey sits him down here for a huge momentum builder.He carries directly into Healy’s upper body, bracing himself and exploding forward using his arms as bullbars. It’s another major statement of Ulster’s intent and another form of leadership that McCloskey’s team-mates willingly followed.Number eight Coetzee was particularly outstanding in the ball-carrying department, continually winning collisions as he made an impressive average of 2.5 metres across his 11 carries, many of them in dense traffic.Suffocating defenceMatching up ideally with the actual physicality of some of Ulster’s tackling was their stifling linespeed, so often shutting down Leinster’s attacking options.Coached by former Ireland centre Jared Payne, the Ulster defence delivered strongly on a plan to bring aggressive linespeed and limit Leinster’s attempts to play to wide channels through outside centre Garry Ringrose.McCloskey and centre partner Darren Cave were superb defensively for Ulster, dealing with many of Leinster’s set-piece strikes and limiting the home team’s ability to play to width.Click here if you cannot view the clip aboveWe see an example above as Cave rushes up to close down Ringrose.Cave is on the edge of Ulster’s frontline defence and leads the linespeed, just edging up ahead of the defenders inside him [white below].There’s a brief hesitation from Cave as he identifies that Adam Byrne [blue below] is an option for Ross Byrne to pass to.But Cave reads the play well to instantly accelerate as the ball leaves Byrne’s hands out the back door towards Ringrose.We can also see Jacob Stockdale on the bottom right of the image above, reacting to Cave’s linespeed and beginning to close up from the backfield.Ideally, Cave would have hammered Ringrose ball-and-all here but completing this kind of tackle is difficult given the speed Cave is moving at, as well as the excellent footwork Ringrose possesses.This goes down as a ‘missed tackle’ on the official stats sheet but it’s an excellent piece of defending as Cave sends Ringrose back inside, where his team-mates have been hunting across the pitch.Murphy and Marty Moore are only too happy to deal with Ringrose, the tighthead prop making a big impact onto the Leinster centre’s upper body as Murphy goes low and takes out his legs.The net result is a gain of around five metres for the Ulster defence and just a few phases later, as Leinster struggle to make the gainline, Adam Byrne knocks-on to send Ulster into half-time with a 13-11 lead.Ulster’s suffocating defensive effort also led to their opening try through Kieran Treadwell, as linespeed on the right-hand side of a ruck sent Ringrose scampering back infield and across to Ulster’s left side of the preceding ruck.Pressure from Henderson and Best saw Ringrose’s attempted exiting kick leave his foot on a flat trajectory, with Best pulling off the blockdown and Treadwell reacting superbly to score.Kick pressureUlster also brought skill in their kicking game, which added to the pressure they imposed on Leinster in this game.Scrum-half Cooney kicked the ball 13 times in play against Leinster and many of those kicks were highly contestable.Click here if you cannot view the clip aboveThis first-half example is a brilliant box kick from Cooney from the back of an Ulster maul – signifying that this was a tactic to pressure Leinster rather than just a back-up plan when there was no space for attacking with ball in hand.The ball hangs in the air for five full seconds and comes down around 20 metres upfield, ideal criteria to allow Stockdale to compete.Stockdale’s aerial battle with Adam Byrne was one enthralling part of this brilliant game and they both had strong moments in this regard. In this instance, both players get off the ground, bid to catch the ball and come to ground with their arms around it.Stockdale fights hard to rip it free of Byrne as Larmour tackles him from behind.Stockdale is helped in his task by replacement hooker Rob Herring, who drives in on Byrne [white below] and clears him away as Stockdale whips his body around to present the ball.It’s a vital aerial win for Ulster by Stockdale and Ulster go on to score three points at the end of the attacking passage that ensues, Leinster infringing to allow Cooney to kick a penalty.While Cooney was Ulster’s busiest kicker, out-half Billy Burns was not far behind him with 10 kicks in open play.Several of them were hanging diagonal garryowens that landed just outside Leinster’s 22, preventing them from calling marks and allowing the excellent Ulster kick chase to apply even more pressure.Influential halfbacksIn Cooney and Burns, Ulster have a pair of halfbacks who can pressure opposition teams with their kicking games but are more than comfortable attacking with ball in hand too.In the example below, we see Ulster playing off out-half Burns before Cooney snipes from the next ruck.Click here if you cannot view the clip aboveUlster play off 10 a huge amount and certainly did so far more often the Leinster in this game.62% of Leinster’s carries in this game were either off 9 or pick-and-jams, whereas that figure was at 44% for Ulster, who so often preferred playing around the creative passing hub that is Burns.The out-half feeds Treadwell for a carry in this instance before Cooney spots his opportunity. He is aided in that by a proactive clearout by Coetzee [white below].As we can see above, Coetzee has driven Rory O’Loughlin to ground a couple of metres beyond the tackle.By going deep, Coetzee ensures that Healy would have to retreat downfield to fold over to the other side of the ruck [as indicated in red above].Tadhg Furlong is expecting Healy to fold and he shuffles to his right [indicated in blue] as he anticipates support arriving on his inside. Cooney doesn’t need to be asked twice, scooping the ball and arcing to his left, fending Healy as the loosehead prop attempts to shut him down.Healy does recover to dive and tackle Cooney after he bursts past Furlong, but the Ulster scrum-half is over the gainline and then offloads to the supporting Cave, who thunders into the Leinster 22.With the pressure on once again, O’Brien concedes a breakdown penalty and Cooney kicks three points for Ulster.Attacking touchesUlster made a big call to go to the corner with a 63rd-minute penalty after Byrne’s try had left them trailing 18-13, turning down a kickable shot at goal and backing their ability to cross the tryline.The decision was vindicated when Luke Marshall – making a big impact after 10 months out with injury – dotted down on phase 11 of the ensuing attacking passage from the close-range lineout.Over the course of a passage that lasts 1 minute and 12 seconds, there is gritty carrying from Ulster, with Murphy [3 carries], O’Sullivan [3], Henderson, Herring, Wiehahn Herbst and McCloskey all putting their hands up. The two key phases saw Ulster bringing a little more ambition, however, shifting the ball beyond one-out carries.On phase eight, Burns finds Marshall out the back door of the decoy-running Treadwell, with the centre skipping a [slightly forward-looking] pass wide left to Stockdale.And the scoring phase itself is a thing of beauty.Click here if you cannot view the clip aboveMcCloskey’s wonderful pass is the key here as he steps up and takes on responsibility in a pressurised area of the pitch.Below, we can see McCloskey [white] organising, calling on Sean Reidy [red] to run a hard line outside him.Burns [blue above] is inside McCloskey at this moment but then begins to drift in behind McCloskey, who is the first receiver.As the ball arrives in McCloskey’s hands, Leinster’s defence appears to be in decent shape.Scott Fardy is in position to deal with McCloskey [white above], while Jack Conan could take Reidy coming on the hard line outside [red] and then Ross Byrne would able to deal with Burns out the back of Ready [blue].But it’s far easier to point these things out with the benefit of freeze frames, rather than in the face of Ulster’s rapidly-moving attack.Conan’s eyes are turned in as he worries about the big threat of McCloskey carrying the ball, or potentially even dropping off a short pass to Burns slipping up on his outside shoulder.Byrne, meanwhile, is concerned about the dangerous run Reidy is making, the Ulster openside timing his decoy line ideally to be a threat.We end up with the situation above. Conan and Fardy [white] are both committed to McCloskey, while Byrne has bitten down on Reidy’s run [red].That leaves Burns [blue] arcing out the back to take McCloskey’s superbly-timed pass.It’s fantastic playmaking from the imposing Ulster centre.As he receives the ball, he darts to his right [white below], looking to lure Conan in.McCloskey also commits Conan with his eyes, never once looking at Burns out the back until he has released the ball.Instead, McCloskey is looking at the defensive line where Conan is positioned, luring him further into biting inwards on him.With Reidy timing his line superbly to be a viable receiver of the short pass, Byrne also bites in, while Burns times his run out the back ideally, staying relatively hidden before bouncing out when McCloskey passes.With Burns now in space, Dave Kearney [yellow below] has to commit inwards onto the Ulster out-half.Burns moves the ball on to Marshall, who has fullback Michael Lowry outside him.Leinster’s Jamison Gibson-Park opts not to turn in on Marshall, sitting off towards Lowry [white below] and hoping that the defenders inside him can cover across.Larmour [blue] is closing across from a sweeping position behind the frontline defence, while Byrne [red] is attempting to recover after initially biting in.Marshall decides to back his finishing power rather than passing to Lowry for a probable finish wider out, and the replacement centre makes sure it’s the right decision by stepping back inside Larmour and finding the power to score through Byrne’s tackle.It’s a wonderful try for Ulster to bring the game to 18-18 but Cooney misses the conversion and the chance to nudge his team ahead as the game enters the closing 15 minutes.It’s an uncharacteristic miss from the scrum-half and although it’s impossible to say what would have happened next, it’s one of the regrets for Ulster.The same applies to Stockdale’s much-discussed failure to finish another brilliant passage of attacking play in the 45th minute and there’s no doubt elements of this narrow defeat will gnaw away at McFarland and his team.However, the countless positives in a superb team performance are worth accentuating as Ulster move forward and look to secure a Pro14 play-off place over the closing three rounds of the regular season.There were difficult lessons for Ulster on Saturday night in a stunning game of rugby but there was also a lesson for everyone else that McFarland’s men can be real contenders.Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: Short URL Share43 Tweet Email By Murray Kinsellacenter_img Subscribe Monday 1 Apr 2019, 3:28 PM Apr 1st 2019, 3:28 PM 27,600 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Ancient Greek medical text uncovered beneath religious psalms on parchment

first_imgAn international multidisciplinary team in California has made an exciting discovery, unveiling a translation of an ancient Greek medical text that until now had been covered with religious writing.Uncovered at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, scientists used high-powered X-rays to analyse the text from St Catherine’s Monastery on the Sinai Peninsula. On the surface were 10th-century psalms, which were found to be covering writings by ancient Greek doctor Galen that had been translated a few hundred years after his death into the ancient Syriac language.Galen, who lived from 129 to around 216 CE, studied medicine by dissecting apes and made some important discoveries, among them that arteries do not carry air, but blood. His work remained influential into the Middle Ages.Photo: Andy Freeberg/SLACThe Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) used to make the discovery, is a common particle accelerator. It works by accelerating electrons to nearly the speed of light and keeps them travelling around a many-sided polygon. Magnets change the electrons’ directions, producing a beam of high-energy X-rays, which successfully revealed the ink that had been scraped off on the parchment.Researchers now have plans to scan the 26 pages to produce high-resolution files that will be uploaded and made available online.

Review Crackdown 3 Is a Terry Crews Xbox Sim

first_img When you first start up Crackdown 3, a huge man waits in the shadow. And then, he emerges, a hyper-accurate video game recreation of Terry Crews. It feels like a thesis statement. Over the years of Crackdown 3’s troubled development, Terry Crews’s actual involvement has always seemed like an open question. But fear not, fans of Old Spice and Brooklyn 99. Crews is definitely here. Watch him give a badass speech and dance a little. Gasp when he blows up. And smash that “A” button to choose him as your playable character for the rest of the game.Terry Crews is great and he brings precisely the right energy to a game that probably should’ve come out a few years ago. Cruise with Crews in Crackdown 3 though and you’ll still have a good time.The first Crackdown sold a lot of copies on Xbox 360 by including the hotly anticipated demo for Halo 3. But it wound up being a pretty acclaimed game in its own right, earning enough goodwill for a follow-up. Crackdown 3 was originally planned to take advantage of the increased cloud computing of an always-online Xbox One. But that didn’t pan out, and neither did the previous 2017 launch date alongside the release of Xbox One X. Now, after several years, and new developer Sumo Digital, Crackdown 3 arrives as pretty much a straightforward Crackdown sequel.AdChoices广告You’re still an agent of some kind of comical (and vaguely threatening) global peacekeeping force, only this time this time there’s a woman of color chatting in your ear along with the authoritative white man to keep you from going full-blown fascist cop. You’re still causing all sorts of chaos in the open world, bounding between buildings and gunning down gangsters. And the art style is an updated take on the original’s colorful, outlined, cel-shaded comic book look. It almost looks too similar, decent looking in day time but muddy and last-gen at night.But even if you’ve never played Crackdown before, Crackdown 3 wastes no time throwing you into the manmade mayhem that makes up its most satisfying gameplay loops. The Skyrim-esque upgrade systems improve your skills in specific areas the more you use them. Shoot more people? Your aim gets better. Jump around collecting agility orbs? You gain platformer-level jumping prowess and verticality unlike in flat Grand Theft Auto cities. Beat people up? Your fists will then rocket you across the stage. Drive more cars and your driving skills improve, which is maybe the most realistic thing.The upgrades reward you for playing however you want to play, not funneling you towards any particularly direction. And the mild structure of the gameplay is the same kind of freeing. Like Mafia 3, you’re trying to take down lower level enforcers to reveal the big bosses. And you do this by shutting down certain types of illegal operations. Climb and disable propaganda towers to recruit more civilian militia members to your cause. Throw rocks into harvesters to disrupt chemical and mining operations. Slaughter all the robots at train stations to hijack the transit system.The city is dense with these missions. They don’t take long and you’ll stumble over so many of them trying to get to your next destination. They’re addictive enough that finding a place to stop playing is tough. However, they are also similar enough, varying difficulty notwithstanding, that they all blur together. Much of Crackdown 3 is a blur. This is partially because the interplay between the ridiculous combat and movement is so fluid, shining in situations like battles against hordes of enemies when your wanted level causes a citywide shutdown. But it’s also because the gameplay itself is lacking in memorable moments aside from ones you actively try to create for yourself.The exceptions are the battles against the handful of bosses. These sprawling affairs have you battling through impressively crafted fortresses full of foes to reach the final opponent. I frequently had to use my entire arsenal, from standard pistols and assault rifles to a shotgun that sends out gravity blasts. Some of the platforming in these sections isn’t great. I couldn’t tell if I was missing platforms or my jump stats weren’t high enough. And there’s fall damage which always sucks. But I did appreciate that these cappers asked me to think, not just act.But just something about Crackdown 3 feels kind of old. Maybe it’s because I’ve been hearing about it for years (albeit not Kingdom Hearts 3 level). Maybe it’s because the game would briefly lock up pretty frequently on my base Xbox One despite not looking that demanding. Maybe it’s because the “over-the-top” comedy seems almost restrained now in the era of Sunset Overdrive or Saints Row and its Crackdown-esque spin-off Agents of Mayhem. Or maybe it’s because Terry Crews is 50 years old. Not that I think people have too-high expectations for this game, but there’s probably still room to grow for what a “next-generation Crackdown” could really be.Note: I should say this all only applies to the single-player campaign. Crackdown 3 also has an online multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone, that does use its connectivity to power more impressive environmental destruction. But I didn’t get to try it for this review period.For more on Xbox consider getting Game Pass for your PC and Xbox Live for your Nintendo Switch.

However, there has been little research on how oncology trials are reported.As a result, researchers from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Department of Radiation Oncology in New York sought to determine the quality of radiation therapy reporting in randomized controlled trials involving Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.The study authors reviewed 61 trial reports that were published between 1998 and 2007 and assessed them for the presence of six quality measures: target volume, radiation dose, fractionation, radiation prescription, quality assurance process use and adherence to quality assurance.Only one-third of the reports described radiation target volume, only 20 percent described using a quality assurance process and 11 percent described adherence to quality assurance.”Inadequate reporting of radiation therapy details was found regardless of disease stage, cooperative group sponsorship, journal of publication or country of origin,” Justin E. Bekelman, M.D., lead author of the study who is now an assistant professor of radiation oncology at the University of Pennsylvania, said.The study authors also suggested that consensus standards for radiation therapy reporting should be developed and integrated into the peer-review process.For more information: www.rtanswers.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

Home Prices Rose in April May Continue CoreLogic

Home Prices Rose in April May Continue CoreLogic

first_img June 5, 2012 419 Views Home prices across the nation rose in April, and a further increase is expected for May’s index, according to “”CoreLogic’s””:http://www.corelogic.com/ April Home Price Index (HPI) report.[IMAGE]The report, released Tuesday, showed that home prices in the United States (including distressed sales-short sales and REO transactions) increased in on a year-over-year basis by 1.1 percent in April. This was the second consecutive year-over-year increase in 2012 and the first time two consecutive increases have occurred since June 2010. On a month-over-month basis, home prices increased by 2.2 percent in April, marking the consecutive month-over-month increase this year.Taking out distressed sales, prices increased year-over-year by 1.9 percent. They rose month-over-month by 2.6 percent, the third month-over-month increase in a row in 2012. The April 2012 HPI report also launched a new metric from the company: the CoreLogic Pending HPI, which uses Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data that measures price changes in the most recent month to provide an indication of trends. According to the April 2012 Pending HPI, house prices are expected to rise at least another 2 percent from April to May.CoreLogic president and CEO “”Anand Nallathambi””:http://www.linkedin.com/pub/anand-nallathambi/23/82b/54b said the projected increase is based on low home inventory levels.””We see the consistent month-over-month increases within our HPI and Pending HPI as one sign that the housing market is stabilizing,”” said Nallathambi. “”Home prices are responding to a restricted supply that will likely exist for some time to come-an optimistic sign for the future of our industry.””[COLUMN_BREAK]””Excluding distressed sales, home prices in March and April are improving at a rate not seen since late 2006 and appreciating at a faster rate than during the tax-credit boomlet in 2012,”” said “”Mark Fleming””:http://www.imn.org/pages/biography.cfm?personid=1F337A547198, chief economist at CoreLogic. “”Nationally, the supply of homes in current inventory is down to 6.5 months, a level not seen in more than five years, in part driven by the ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├ï┼ôlocked in’ position of so many homeowners in negative equity.””Including distressed transactions, the peak-to-current change in the national HPI from April 2006 to April 2012 was negative 31.7 percent. Excluding distressed transactions, the peak-to-current change was negative 23.3 percent.Despite the overall increase in CoreLogic’s national HPI, some states saw major drops in home prices in April. Delaware’s 12-month HPI for single-family sales decreased by 11.9 percent. It was followed by Illinois and Alabama, which experienced HPI drops of 6.8 percent and 6.6 percent, respectively.As far as Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) go, the Phoenix-Mesa-Glendale area saw a 12-month HPI increase of 11.3 percent.

EDMONTON — Actor Dakota House best known for his

first_img EDMONTON — Actor Dakota House, best known for his role on the CBC television series “North of 60,” is taking the leap into Alberta politics.House, who is 44, is to represent the Alberta Party in the Peace River constituency.In a video posted on his Facebook page, House says he believes in Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel, and adds the party is committed to consulting with Albertans before making changes.“North of 60” ran in the 1990s and chronicled the lives of Indigenous people in the fictional town of Lynx River, N.W.T.House appeared in subsequent movies based on the series, worked on other movie projects and had guest roles on TV shows, including “The X-Files.”He has also been a motivational speaker for youth and has written a children’s book called “Dancers In the Sky.”In his Facebook video, House says he wants to push back against the cynicism undermining trust in politics.“We don’t want a promise because promise has lost all merit. That word doesn’t even really mean anything when it comes to politicians today because we’ve been listening to the same things over and over and over again.”House will face United Conservative candidate Dan Williams in the sprawling northern Alberta riding. The incumbent, NDP member Debbie Jabbour, has not indicated whether she is running again.Jabbour edged the Progressive Conservative candidate in 2015 to win the riding.The Conservatives have since merged with the Wildrose Party to form the United Conservatives, and those two parties combined took more than half the votes in Peace River in the last election.The 2015 Alberta Party candidate, Sherry Hilton, finished last with less than four per cent of the vote.Albertans will head to the polls sometime this spring when Premier Rachel Notley decides to drop the writ. By law, the election must be held before the end of May.Under Mandel, a former PC cabinet minister and mayor of Edmonton, the Alberta Party is making a strong push to escape the fringes of the province’s political landscape.It plans to run a full slate of candidates. In 2015, it had nominees in fewer than half the constituencies, won one seat and captured two per cent of the overall vote.

Dreamers Bay one of bestpreserved ancients ports in the Med

Dreamers Bay one of bestpreserved ancients ports in the Med

first_imgExcavations at Dreamer’s Bay on the southern shores of the Akrotiri peninsula in the Limassol district, contains archaeological remains that appear to indicate that it represents one of the best-preserved ancient ports in the Mediterranean, it has emerged.The announcement was made by the department of antiquities to mark the completion of the 2018 archaeological mission by the University of Leicester at Akrotiri-Dreamer’s Bay.Excavations focused on remains of stone buildings of apparent Roman/early Byzantine date close to the shoreline, partly exposed by marine erosion. This year’s excavation was supplemented by geophysical survey, conducted in January when vegetation and soil conditions were most favourable in order to explore the extent of the still part-buried ancient buildings, and surface geological and archaeological survey of ancient cliff-top quarries to the east.“All the archaeological remains on land are apparently linked to an ancient harbour in the bay below,” the department said.“Taken together, these remains appear to represent one of the best preserved ancient port sites in the Mediterranean.”Some years ago, the buildings, spread along 0.5km of relatively low shoreline—the only low ground on an otherwise cliff-bound coast—underwent initial investigations by the University of Buffalo, and were believed to comprise elements of a late Roman/early Byzantine (4th -7th century AD) port facility, perhaps serving the major Greco-Roman city of Kourion 13km to the north. Connections between these onshore structures and submerged archaeological remains in the bay to the east, including a masonry breakwater, remain to be investigated.The shoreline structures were found to be more extensive and more complex than the simple rectangular ‘warehouses’ hitherto presumed. Several are now seen to have internal subdivisions, and/or to possess adjacent walled courtyards containing evidence of activity in the form of pits containing burned deposits, perhaps indicating industrial processes. The structures also broadly share a common orientation, the entire layout giving the impression of a single, short, planned episode of layout and construction.Provisional assessment of the sealed pottery groups recovered from the shoreline buildings, undertaken by Dr Stella Demesticha of the University of Cyprus, indicates that they were constructed far earlier than hitherto assumed from scatters of ceramics on the surface. They were in use perhaps during the second century, and certainly during the third and fourth centuries AD, most appearing to have been destroyed by the earthquake which devastated nearby Kourion around 360 AD.In 2018 excavations revealed the southern end of another long, subdivided building with a courtyard to its east.“Unfortunately, it was eroded to below floor level, but ceramics which had washed down-slope were sampled for analysis,” the department said.To the east of the complex, a test-pit over a geophysical anomaly and other surface indications confirm existence of another long, subdivided building on an east-west orientation, probably with a courtyard on the south side, now largely lost to the sea.In area 2 midway along the shoreline, further test pitting of geophysical anomalies showed that the previously-investigated Structure 5 was considerably longer than hitherto realised, apparently running for 50m and apparently joining a second structure making it part of a large complex in this area.The ancient cliff-top quarries apparently associated with the port were also surveyed this year. These exploited marine conglomerates of various grades, some cut as squared blocks presumably for constructional purposes, others for millstones. Associated features including buildings and what seems to be a ceramic-piped water channel suggest that at least some of this quarrying activity is Roman, but confirmation must await planned excavation and if possible scientific dating in 2019.The archaeological mission was carried out under the direction of Professor Simon James, consisted of professional excavation staff and undergraduate students of the University of Leicester’s School of Archaeology & Ancient History, assisted by graduate students from the University of Cyprus.It was conducted with the permission of the antiquities department and the British bases, and funded by the Honor Frost Foundation.The excavations were conducted between March 30 and April 16 this year at and around the locality of Dreamers Bay (Nisarouin) on the southern shores of the Akrotiri peninsula.You May LikeThe SideHairstyles That Make You Look Younger Than EverThe SideUndoHouse CoastMan Turns A Bus Into A Dream Home, Take A Look InsideHouse CoastUndogeneralpathbest 10 countries to retire in, as of 2019generalpathUndo From space heroes to artists: women written out of historyUndoProperty owners price themselves out of the marketUndoGreek Prime Minister in Cyprus for official visitUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
