Bruce McArthur makes brief court appearance case put over to Feb 28

first_imgTORONTO – Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur appeared briefly by video in a Toronto courtroom Wednesday morning, before his case was put over until the end of the month.The 66-year-old self-employed landscaper faces five first-degree murder charges in connection with the disappearances of several men believed to have had ties to Toronto’s LGBTQ community.Police have found the dismembered remains of six individuals in large planters at the home of one of McArthur’s clients, and investigators have said they expect to lay more charges in the coming days.McArthur, wearing an orange jumpsuit, said little during his short court appearance, speaking only to thank the court at the end of the proceedings.A friend of Dean Lisowick — one of McArthur’s alleged victims — was in the courtroom, but said he could not bring himself to look at McArthur on the video screen.“I’m just numb,” said Jeff Tunney, who lived briefly with Lisowick in Toronto. “You don’t know how to feel about it. I don’t know how.”Lisowick, who police have said had no fixed address, drifted back and forth between shelters and Tunney’s home in the heart of Toronto’s gay village, before settling with Tunney for around two and a half months beginning in 2015, Tunney said.Lisowick moved out after the pair had a disagreement over his drug use, Tunney said. But in spring 2016, Lisowick showed up outside Tunney’s home.“He said he was going to be back and then he never came back and no one knew what happened to him,” he added.Lisowick, who was either 43 or 44 at the time of his death, was never reported missing.Tunney said he assumed Lisowick had simply found a better place to live.Lisowick worked part time as a cleaner in a local bar and also earned money as a sex worker, Tunney said.Tunney and a friend had tried, unsuccessfully, to warn Lisowick away from the sex trade, he added.“I was a little worried for his safety because he seemed to be a naive guy that just goes anywhere,” Tunney said.Police have so far identified only one set of remains — those of Andrew Kinsman, another one of the men McArthur is accused of killing — and have said they continue to analyze the others.Last month, McArthur was charged with 49-year-old Kinsman’s death, as well as the presumed death of 44-year-old Selim Esen. Both men went missing from Toronto’s gay village in 2017.Police laid three more first-degree murder charges against McArthur about two weeks later, related to the disappearances of Lisowick, Majeed Kayhan, 58, and Soroush Mahmudi, 50.McArthur is scheduled to return to court on Feb. 28.last_img read more

WilsonRaybould urges restraint after supportive graffiti at constituency office

first_imgVancouver police have arrested a 37-year-old man for allegedly using several cans of spray paint to express support for former federal attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould.Officers responded early Monday after slogans such as “let Jody speak,” “Trudeau for treason,” and “make B.C. the best coast again,” were sprayed in huge red or white letters on the windows of Wilson-Raybould’s constituency office.The messages also covered the sidewalk and busy street in front of the office in her Vancouver Granville riding.Police say several cans of spray paint have been seized and charges of mischief are being considered.The slogans were removed from the office windows within hours and a crew using pressure washers worked to clean the graffiti off the sidewalk and street.Wilson-Raybould posted a message on social media Monday urging supporters to voice their opinions in safe and legal ways.“While I appreciate people wanting to show their support and enthusiasm as well as express their views, I would encourage them to do so without damaging private or public property or putting themselves in harm’s way. Thank you,” Wilson-Raybould wrote on her Twitter account.She and fellow member of Parliament and former cabinet minister Jane Philpott were removed from the Liberal party caucus one week ago.  The ousters followed Wilson-Raybould’s resignation from cabinet in February, shortly after she was shuffled out of the justice portfolio.Philpott resigned in early March, just weeks after being named Treasury Board president, saying she had “serious concerns” about allegations that Wilson-Raybould had been pressured to intervene in the SNC-Lavalin controversy.

UNDP Sri Lanka to conduct tsunami drills in schools

The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami claimed the lives of more than thirty-five thousand Sri Lankans and affected more than one million people across the island. It damaged a total of 183 schools, 18 vocational and industrial training institutes and 4 universities, affecting the studies of nearly 100,000 students across fourteen Coastal Districts. The UNDP together with the Ministry of Disaster Management, Ministry of Education, Red Cross, Sri Lanka Navy and School development societies, will design, implement and coordinate a school simulation programme in five selected schools affected by the Tsunami in 2004 – starting with Galle on 03 April 2018 at the Vidyaloka Madya Maha Vidyalaya.The School Preparedness programme is a full operational drill to test and evaluate the operational and decision-making readiness of Principals, staff, students and school committees in the event of a tsunami affecting Sri Lanka. The exercise will allow these schools to simulate on how to evacuate the students properly to identified safe locations as well as to simulate on School’s Disaster Management Plan developed. To reduce the loss of lives associated with tsunamis, the Government of Japan is supporting a regional project to strengthen school preparedness for tsunamis in Asia and the Pacific. Implemented by UNDP in Country Offices across Asia and the Pacific region, 90 tsunami drills in 90 schools will be conducted across 18 countries including: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Fiji, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor Leste, Tonga, Vanuatu and Viet Nam.

Records dont matter coach says of 211 wrestling squad preparing for Big

Although the Buckeyes’ wrestling season might not have lived up to expectations, the team is entering the Big Ten Tournament boasting five seeded competitors. Coach Tom Ryan called this tournament the beginning of the real season. Senior captain Colt Sponseller, 165 pounds, and redshirt freshman Nick Heflin, 174 pounds, were selected as No. 2 seeds for the weekend’s tournament. The two are tied for the most wins on the team at 19 each. Redshirt freshman Peter Capone, 197 pounds, redshirt sophomore captain C.J. Magrum, 184 pounds, and sophomore captain Ian Paddock, 133 pounds, all received seeds for the tournament. Magrum was given a No. 7 seed, while Capone and Paddock received No. 8 seeds. For the Buckeyes (2-11, 1-7 Big Ten), seeds do not mean much. “Seedings don’t matter,” Heflin said. “You have to beat everyone to win it anyway.” Although the Buckeyes’ season has not been great, Ryan said this is where the real season starts for the competitors. “In the competitive world, the season starts now. Records don’t matter; mentality matters,” Ryan said. “I’m sure all our guys are anxious to compete.” The team has been preparing hard for the Big Ten Tournament, and wrestlers said the week following their last dual was filled with two practices per day. “We’ve had a couple of hard weeks,” Paddock said. Capone said the team brought in Tommy Rowlands — who won two National Championships for Ohio State in 2002 and 2004 — to help the team prepare for the tournament. Capone welcomed the chance to train with the former National Champion. “He kills me for 10 minutes straight, then for another 10 minutes,” Capone said, “so I can’t even barely stand.” Capone said he hopes training will make facing someone in his weight class easier as he grows accustomed to wrestling the former heavyweight National Champion. Magrum said he is looking forward to a potential rematch with Iowa’s Grant Gambrall. “That was an upsetting one. I started off winning the match, and ended up getting beat pretty bad,” Magrum said. “I’d like another shot at that.” Sponseller said he’s looking to put the “icing on the cake” of his Big Ten career. “I want to go out there and win,” Sponseller said. “It’s the only thing I have on my mind right now is go out there and win a Big Ten title.” The Buckeyes began the season as the No. 12 team, but injuries and inexperience have contributed to their less-than-stellar record. The team is looking to salvage what it can in the Big Ten Tournament, and send as many wrestlers as possible to the NCAA Championships. “We just really want to go out there and get as many guys to nationals as we can,” Sponseller said. Ryan agreed. “Right now, this thing’s about qualifying for the national tournament,” Ryan said. “Right now, we got to get our guys to the national tournament and represent this program the way it needs to be.” The Big Ten Tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday in Evanston, Ill. read more

La glace de feu un potentiel énergétique énorme

first_imgLa glace de feu : un potentiel énergétique énormeCela fait des années déjà que les géologues cherchent tous les moyens imaginables pour exploiter les hydrates de méthane. Une nouvelle méthode d’extraction de cette “glace de feu” a été étudiée par un laboratoire du ministère américain de l’Energie.La “glace de feu” est une couche terrestre constituée de méthane et d’eau qui s’est formée au fil des siècles à partir du carbone organique. Des hydrates de méthane qui se présentent sous la forme de cristaux. Les principaux gisements se situeraient dans des fonds marins et dans le permafrost, un sous-sol gelé en permanence présent en Arctique. D’où la difficulté d’extraction.Selon les évaluations, 10.000 milliards de tonnes de carbone serait retenues par les hydrates de méthane, soit deux fois plus que ce qui est piégé dans les gisements connus de combustibles fossiles, relève le Journal de l’Environnement. Ceci correspondrait même à 13 fois la quantité de carbone actuellement contenue dans l’atmosphère. Au vu d’un tel potentiel, les sociétés sont de plus en plus nombreuses à s’intéresser à cette “glace de feu”. Ainsi, un laboratoire du ministère américain de l’Energie, en partenariat avec ConocoPhillips et la Japan Oil Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC), va bientôt tester une nouvelle méthode d’extraction dans le nord de l’Alaska. Le gaz devrait être directement extrait dans la région pétrolière voisine de Prudhoe Bay, naturellement riche en CO2.Une nouvelle alternative au charbon et au pétrole ?  À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéLeur technique consiste en fait à extraire le gaz carbonique et de le réinjecter dans le forage Ignik Sikumi. A partir de là, le dioxyde de carbone injecté dans les sables riches en hydrates devrait remplacer le méthane dans sa cage d’eau. Enfin, il faudrait procéder à la mise en dépression du puits de forage afin de récolter la plus grande quantité possible de méthane.Moins consommatrice d’énergie que l’injection d’eau chaude, cette méthode reste à être expérimenté. Néanmoins, elle pourrait être une alternative au pétrole et au charbon, considérés comme de grands pollueurs. Elle permettrait également d’augmenter l’offre mondiale de gaz naturel.Le 19 janvier 2012 à 16:21 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Guardiola Sane is the best winger in the world

first_imgPep Guardiola has declared Leroy Sane as the world’s best winger ahead of Manchester City’s Carabao Cup final with Chelsea on Sunday.The Germany international came off the bench on Wednesday to equalise for City against former club Schalke 04 in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash by scoring a superb free-kick from 30 yards out.Sane’s goal helped inspire 10-man City to a 3-2 comeback victory on the night and he will now be eyeing a starting spot at Wembley this weekend as the Citizens chase a second successive Carabao Cup.But opportunities at the Etihad Stadium have been a little harder to come by this season for Sane due to Bernardo Silva’s adeptness down the right wing and Raheem Sterling’s fine form.However, Guardiola holds Sane in very high regard and will not contemplate moving him down the middle.“Playing in the middle he can do it,” said Guardiola on the club website.“But I think he’s better out wide.“I’m not saying he can’t (play in middle) but at the moment we have better players to do that job.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

Former Haines Police Dispatcher Speaks Out On Alleged Harasser

first_imgGovernor Sean Parnell wants the hiring process for state employees examined after it was revealed a former police officer hired with the ferry system has a checkered past.Several people who talked about Jason Joel’s job performance for a previous story did not want to share their identity, including a former Haines Police Dispatcher who alleges Joel harassed her on the job. Now she is speaking out.Download AudioForty-six-year-old Angie Goodwin started at the Haines Police Department as a dispatcher in 2009. By then, Jason Joel had been on the job for three years. Goodwin says at first, she considered him a friendly coworker. But slowly, she says Joel’s comments and actions toward her turned from friendly and joking to crude and harassing.RELATED: State Hires Ferry Security Officer With Questionable Past“It was so gradual, that by the time it got bad, I didn’t realize that I was in trouble,” Goodwin said. “I mean at first he joked around and stuff, but it was just joking.”“But he gradually pushes his way in, and you let him come in because you feel safe. He’s a police officer.”Goodwin says the alleged verbal harassment was sometimes sexual. Occasionally it included physical contact. Once, Joel picked Goodwin up over his shoulder, she says. Another time he grabbed her wrist. And, she says, the harassment became constant.“There was some form or other of harassment – verbal, physical, sexual – almost every time we worked together,” she said.Goodwin says there were witnesses to the harassment, but none who could be reached for comment. Several other women in Haines and Skagway say they either witnessed or experienced harassment by Joel, but have not wanted their names used publically.As the harassment increased, Goodwin says she became more stressed. She began seeing a counselor. She mentioned some of the incidents to her doctor when she complained of not being able to sleep. In March 2011 she decided to finally make an official complaint to Chief of Police Gary Lowe.“I was on edge and I just got really upset and I called him and he was almost home when he answered his phone and I started crying,” Goodwin said. “I said ‘I need you to come in here, I have something really important you need to know.’”About two weeks later, she says the chief told her Joel had resigned. The borough confirms that Joel was allowed to resign in a deal signed by Joel, the borough manager and a public employee’s union representative.Goodwin resigned a few weeks after Joel. She says she wanted out of the department.“I was sick of it. I was so burned out at that point I couldn’t stand it,” she said. “I just wanted out at that point.”Shortly before she resigned, Goodwin began documenting incidents of harassment from Joel. She also has a letter she wrote to an attorney asking for guidance. But after Joel surrendered his state police certification, she quit pursuing legal action.When Goodwin heard Joel had been hired as a security officer with the state, she was upset and decided to finally speak out.“He’s dealing with 5,000 times more people now than he was at the police department. I mean, this isn’t just small town Haines now that he’s dealing with. Now he’s got the whole state under him,” Goodwin said. “What were they thinking? But there’s no way for them to dig it up because the borough, everyplace he’s worked for has hidden it one way or another.”Joel has not responded to email requests for comment. The Haines borough – along with other police departments he’s worked for – say his personnel file is confidential and won’t confirm any complaints that were leveled against him.But the allegations and documented work history were enough to get some lawmakers, and now the governor’s attention.“The governor has asked Commissioner Kemp to look into the hiring process and we’re following through with that request,” Department of Transportation spokesperson Jeremy Woodrow said.Exactly how DOT Commissioner Pat Kemp will examine the process is not yet clear, Woodrow says.“It’s important to point out that Mr. Joel is a state employee so anything the state does regarding his employment has to be done under the strict guidelines that follow state procedures,” Woodrow said.Some state hiring policies are developed by the Department of Administration and could be changed by staff. Others are outlined in state statute and would require the legislature to take action. But, right now, Woodrow says details of the hiring process are confidential.State Representative for Haines, Democrat Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins says he hopes Kemp will share the results of his examination of the hiring process with the public.“I think Gov. Parnell directing Commissioner Kemp to look into this is a needed and positive step and I hope they come full circle and let us know what happened,” Kreiss-Tomkins said.Sen. Dennis Egan, also a Democrat and chair of the Senate Transportation Committee has also sent a letter to Commissioner Kemp asking him to look into the hiring of Joel, according to Egan’s staff.last_img read more

OnePlus 7 blueprint or rival Oppos Reno smartphone with Snapdragon 855 10x

first_imgOnePlus 7 is everything gadget enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for this year among other things, and there have been generous rumours about the upcoming “flagship killer” that could potentially take on bigger rivals such as Samsung, Huawei and Apple. Oppo’s flagship smartphones have sort of served as blueprints for upcoming OnePlus smartphones and we now might have a look the potential OnePlus 7 blueprint in the form of Oppo’s next smartphone.Oppo announced a new sub-brand called “Reno” in China and the first phone under that label will be launched next month. Oppo VP Shen Yiren shared some interesting information about the Reno smartphone, which suggests tech belonging to a premium flagship smartphone – something OnePlus would love to borrow.Shen revealed that Oppo’s Reno smartphone would boast Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 chipset, a 4,065mAh battery and the recently-showcased 10x lossless zoom. Oppo had said at the MWC 2019 in Barcelona that 10x lossless zoom will be launched in a commercial smartphone this year and it looks like Reno is calling the shots early. Oppo Reno smartphone launching next monthTwitter/Oppo PROppo has already won hearts with its SuperVOOC fast charging technology, which is available in limited phones. Seeing the Reno smartphone handpick some of the best techs out there, it won’t be surprising if SuperVOOC made the cut to charge the 4,065mAh battery.Besides these features, there are no other details about the upcoming Reno phone. But according to a Weibo post, it appears the Reno smartphone will break covers on April 10. Oppo hasn’t revealed any plans to make Reno a global brand, but teasers posted on Twitter suggests it might be headed to select international markets and India could be one of them. Oppo F11 Pro shown for representational purposesIBTimes India/Sami KhanIn the meantime, OnePlus 7 is not expected until May or even June. Rumours about the upcoming flagship suggest there could be revolutionary features such as a truly full-screen display with a pop-up selfie camera, triple rear cameras, Snapdragon 855 chipset, a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 6, up to 12GB RAM, 256GB storage and a 4,000mAh battery powered by 44W Dash Charge support.When the Reno smartphone officially launches in China next month, we’ll be able to draw more comparisons with the OnePlus 7. Until then, the current leaks suggest Oppo’s new smartphone could be an apt fit for OnePlus 7 blueprint and by extension – a rival.

Hidden Cancer Cells Defy Fibroid Surgical Procedure

first_imgGovernment alerts and an onslaught of personal injury attorneys’ advertisements on the dangers of using power morcellators in the removal of uterine fibroids have signaled a public health concern that could disproportionately impact African-American women.Uterine fibroids, noncancerous growths that develop from the muscular tissue of the uterus, are quite common but overwhelmingly so among Black women.“I see patients with fibroids every day, and of my African-American patients over the age of 30, having fibroids with or without symptoms is more the rule than the exception,” said Dr. Caren Craig, an obstetrician and gynecologist that just joined the staff at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.“African-American women are three times more likely to develop uterine fibroids and at an earlier age than other women…and we’re not sure why,” added Dr. Estella Parrott, medical officer in the Gynecologic Health and Disease Branch at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.Similarly, Parrott said, research has not been able to uncover the causes of uterine fibroids, though some evidence suggests a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental—such as the lack of vitamin D—factors. All that is known is that it occurs during a woman’s reproductive years, and while it usually presents without symptoms, it could cause heavy or prolonged bleeding leading to anemia; pelvic pain, including pain with intercourse; pelvic pressure, bladder symptoms, and even back ache.Many afflicted women choose to undergo laparoscopic hysterectomy (removal of entire uterus) or myomectomy (removal of fibroids) because these procedures are associated with benefits such as a shorter post-operative recovery time and a reduced risk of infection.The minimally-invasive procedures usually involve the use of morcellators, medical devices that cut the fibroids into smaller fragments and remove them through small incision sites.About 60,000 of those procedures are performed every year. But now, the Food and Drug Administration and other experts are warning that the devices can significantly spread undetected uterine cancer cells, “upstaging” the disease and worsening the patient’s prognosis.The FDA estimates that 1 in 350 women undergoing hysterectomy or myomectomy for the treatment of fibroids is found to have an unsuspected uterine sarcoma, a type of uterine cancer that includes leiomyosarcoma (LMS), a very aggressive form of cancer.African-American women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with LMS, according to the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists.“If laparoscopic power morcellation is performed in women with unsuspected uterine sarcoma, there is a risk that the procedure will spread the cancerous tissue within the abdomen and pelvis, significantly worsening the patient’s likelihood of long-term survival,” the FDA’s safety alert read. “For this reason, and because there is no reliable method for predicting whether a woman with fibroids may have a uterine sarcoma, the FDA discourages the use of laparoscopic power morcellation during hysterectomy or myomectomy for uterine fibroids.”It is estimated women who have accidental morcellation of their uterine sarcoma cancer are four times more likely to die than those who didn’t have the procedure, with an average life span of only 24-36 months. And, that 85 percent of women who have leiomyosarcoma (LMS) that has spread (stage 4) die five years after diagnosis.The deadly consequences are evident in lives of people like Dr. Amy Reed, an anesthesiologist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, whose Stage I uterine cancer was upstaged to Stage 4 after a uterine hysterectomy seeded cancer cells throughout her abdomen.Her husband Dr. Hooman Noorchashm has since launched a petition on calling for a halt to the use of morcellation in the removal of uterine fibroids.“This is an avoidable disaster,” the petition read. “Women should be told the truth and the practice should stop.”Dr. Craig said the situation has similarities with the controversy surrounding the use of transvaginal mesh, which the FDA may now reclassify as a “high-risk” device after thousands of reported injuries and deaths.“A bit of overuse and poor informed consent” is what has fuelled the growing morcellation crisis, Dr. Craig said.“I think the answer is to have greater restrictions and better scrutinization of morcellating. Total banning is probably not a good thing,” she said.The doctor agreed with the AAGL which warned that medical advancements do not occur without missteps and mishaps.“With any surgical technology or intervention, unanticipated risks may not be realized for years afterimplementation. Thus, surgical innovation should be linked with ongoing safety evaluation,” the organization stated in an advisory to its members.“Medicine is evolving,” Dr. Craig agreed, “and as it does, we are all striving toward excellence in patient care.”Parrott said her agency is continuing to support research that can provide more answers about fibroids with an eye to mitigating its incidence and impact. Given the disproportionate impact of the condition on Black women, too few of them are involved in that research or in clinical trials.Meanwhile, though the FDA has stopped short of banning the use of power morcellators, it has urged doctors and their patients to be more thoughtful in sharing and garnering all information pertinent to treatment of fibroids, including the risks.“The FDA’s primary concern as we consider the continued use of these devices is the safety and well-being of patients,” said Dr. William Maisel, deputy director for science and chief scientist at the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, in a statement. “Patients should know that the FDA is discouraging the use of laparoscopic power morcellation for hysterectomy or myomectomy, and they should discuss the risks and benefits of the available treatment options with their health care professionals.”last_img read more

Sony Unveils PSP2NGP

first_imgBehold, the Sony NGP. This is the artist formerly known as the PSP2. NGP, incidentally, stands for “Next Generation Portable.” Never let it be said that Sony doesn’t know how to be blunt when it comes to product naming.After several years of concept shots, rumors, and blurry photos, the Japanese consumer electronics giant finally gave the world its first glimpse of the future of its portable gaming business this morning at a press event in Tokyo. The company’s president, Kaz Hirai called the device’s interface “revolutionary.”The NGP is socially connected, location aware, does augmented reality (a la what will surely be its chief competitor, Nintendo’s 3DS), and is compatible with the PlayStation Suite, a development platform for the PlayStation and Android handsets.The console features a five-inch, 960 by 544 multitouch OLED screen (the current PSP’s screen is 4.3 inches, incidentally). It also features a touch activated backpanel, so your fingers can interact with the device while you’re gripping the thing. Also, as expected, the device has dual joysticks on the front that the company is calling “micro analog sticks.”More details? My guess is that we’re going to have to wait until E3 for those. After all, this thing isn’t due out until some time before the holidays.last_img read more

Flatworms found to regenerate faster or slower when exposed to weak magnetic

In this new effort, the researchers wondered what would happen if they cut off parts of a flatworm’s body and then exposed it to a weak magnetic field (more than Earth’s field, but less than that exerted by strong magnets).Some in the biological community have theorized that exposure to weak magnetic fields could result in a process called radical pair recombination. This process could conceivably alter the spin direction of electrons located in the outer parts of atoms, disturbing molecular pairings and leading to the formation of free radicals. This could lead to the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS—chemically reactive species that contain oxygen), which might cause processes like faster wound healing or slowing cancer cell growth. To test the theory, the researchers used flatworms. In their lab, they sliced flatworms below and above their feeding tubes and then put the pieces in culture dishes that were placed inside a chamber shielded from outside magnetic interference. Inside the chamber, they placed a device capable of producing weak magnetic fields. They subjected the pieces to a variety of magnetic field intensities and observed the impact on regeneration times.

Growth sped up in fields greater than 500 µT. They also found ROS levels were altered—they were lower than they would have been under normal conditions in blastema exposed to the lower doses of magnetism, and higher in those exposed to fields greater than 500 µT. The researchers were unable to explain the different impacts they saw, but noted that a reduction in blastema growth was accompanied by reduced stem cell growth. A team of researchers from Western Michigan University and the University of Colorado Boulder has found that the regeneration rate for planaria flatworms can be impacted by a weak magnetic field. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the group describes experiments they conducted with flatworms exposed to weak magnetic fields and what they found. Following injury, planarians undergo a stem cell response (labeled in green) that leads to new tissue growth and the regeneration of missing structures (such as the head). Weak static magnetic fields can change stem cell responses to injury, as seen following exposure to a 200 μT field, which blocks stem cell activity and therefore regeneration.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 3. On the run: The Cardinals want to pass the ball (and it would be hard not to with the combination of Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Michael Floyd), but establishing some semblance of a run game may be the only way they’ll be able to move the ball through the air in New Orleans. The Cardinals are — once again, at least through the season’s first two weeks — an unspectacular team with regard to running the ball. But both Rashard Mendenhall and Andre Ellington average more than four yards per carry, and Arizona has been able to get itself in third-and-manageable and use its play-action packages. That’s all the Cardinals can realistically expect out of the ground attack at this point. If Arizona can consistently gain positive yards against the Saints’ 26th-ranked rush defense, it’ll make life infinitely easier for Palmer and his offensive line on the road.Noteworthy stat: Eleven different Cardinals have caught a pass this season, and nine of them average more than 10 yards per reception.Keys for the New Orleans defense: 1. Get to Carson Palmer: It’s no secret that the Cardinals offensive line struggles in pass protection, though it at least showed the ability to be competent against Detroit. But left tackle Levi Brown failed his first road test this season, and the crowd noise in New Orleans won’t make things any easier on him. If the Saints are able to consistently pressure Palmer, it’ll work in their favor in two ways — forcing the quarterback to get antsy in the pocket, as well as making the Cardinals keep a receiving option in pass protection. But if Arizona’s tackles are able to hold their own, it will free up the Cardinals’ passing game, and Palmer has shown that he’ll find receivers if he’s given time. 2. Get to Drew Brees: Everything New Orleans does on offense starts with its seven-time All-Pro quarterback. He’s completing almost 65 percent of his passes this season, but has thrown as many interceptions as touchdowns. While the New Orleans offense has taken a step forward with Payton’s return, it’s still not the machine that it was in the late 2000s. If the Cardinals can get pressure on Brees — something they’ve struggled with through their first two games, recording just one sack and minimal hurries — it would go a long way toward upsetting the rhythm of a New Orleans offense that still isn’t fully clicking. 3. Create and prevent big plays: The Saints are going to move the ball against the Cardinals, and between Darren Sproles, Jimmy Graham and Marques Colston, they have a bevy of guys who can make a big play at any given time. But if the Cardinals defense can prevent the Saints from hitting big plays for touchdowns — as well as come up with a turnover or two — it can get Carson Palmer and the offense the ball without having to play catch-up and abandon the ground attack. Noteworthy stat: Arizona has recorded just one sack this season, and standout linemen Darnell Dockett and Calais Campbell have combined for just nine tackles through two games. Noteworthy stat: New Orleans ranks 11th in total defense under first-year coordinator Rob Ryan — up 20 spots from its 31st ranking in 2012. Keys for the New Orleans offense: 1. Keep momentum: The Saints will start the game with the built-in momentum that comes with playing at home, especially in a raucous environment like New Orleans. If they can keep that momentum, things won’t look good for the Cardinals. But if Arizona can make a big play early — force a turnover, get a big special teams play or take an early lead — it has a chance. It’s the Saints’ game to lose — if they’re able to move the ball and keep the crowd in the game, it’ll be a steep uphill battle for the Cardinals. 2. Get Jimmy Graham the ball: This hasn’t been much of an issue for the Saints through the season’s first two weeks, as he leads New Orleans in catches (14), yards (224) and touchdowns (2), and has its second-longest reception at 56 yards. Graham is one of the new-wave hybrid tight ends that are a missmatch for defenses, and the Cardinals are unlikely to find a way to match up against his size and athleticism. If Graham is effective, it’ll force Cardinals’ defensive coordinator Todd Bowles to get creative in coverage, likely giving another New Orleans pass-catcher a chance to step up. But if Arizona is able to limit Graham in single coverage — as unlikely as it is — the Cardinals will be able to diversify their coverage and pressure, making things more difficult on Brees. 3. Fix red zone woes: New Orleans has been the NFL’s worst red zone team through the season’s first two weeks (1-for-7), a far cry from the offense that ranked in the league’s top-six in five of the past six years, and has never finished below 50 percent since head coach Sean Payton arrived with Brees. The Saints’ lack of a consistent run game has likely been the biggest factor, but New Orleans will need to convert against the Cardinals’ opportunistic defense in order to give its struggling defense a cushion against Arizona’s newly capable offense. Noteworthy stat: New Orleans is 1-for-7 in the red zone this season after being one of the better red zone teams in the league for the past several years. Keys for the Cardinals defense: 1. Stop the run: If the Saints can effectively run the ball and get into their play-action sets, there isn’t a defense in the league that stands a chance. New Orleans’ offense has struggled to run the ball in 2013, though, averaging 76.5 yards per game and ranking 24th in the league. If Arizona can take away the Saints’ subpar running attack and turn New Orleans’ offense one-dimensional, it should be able to force a costly mistake or two against an offense that throws the ball more than 40 times per game. 2. No big plays: If the Saints can force Arizona to put together long drives, the Cardinals will likely struggle to score. Though kicker Jay Feely’s confidence appears to be returning, Arizona isn’t going to win at New Orleans by kicking field goals. The Cardinals have found the bulk of their offensive success by creating big plays to Fitzgerald, Floyd and Roberts. But Palmer has shown that he’s prone to making big mistakes, though he’s obviously a major upgrade over what the Cardinals have had at QB since Kurt Warner. Couple that with the offensive line’s tendency to allow pressure on the quarterback, and the Saints’ chances of creating a big play on defense increase as Arizona is forced to prolong drives. 3. Get the ball: If the Saints can force Arizona to turn the ball over, the Cardinals have little-to-no shot of winning the game. While Arizona’s turnover ratio is even through its first two games, Palmer threw a pick-six against Detroit and, although he’s been largely successful in Arizona, has made at least one terrible decision in each game that led to a turnover. If New Orleans can capitalize on the few mistakes that the Cardinals’ offense is likely to make, Arizona is in trouble. But if the Saints are unable to take advantage of a poor decision or two, Arizona should be able to score enough points to compete. 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories Arizona has shown that, if nothing else, it isn’t the pushover it was for the second half of the 2012 season. If the Cardinals find a way to go to New Orleans and compete, they’ll turn some heads around the league and show that it might not be just a two-team race between San Francisco and Seattle for the NFC West title. Keys for the Cardinals offense:1. Win first down: The Cardinals have gone three-and-out just twice this season, good for second in the NFL. A major part of that has been their ability to avoid third-and-long situations, and that will be a key on Sunday. If the Saints’ pass-rushers can pin their ears back and go after Cardinals’ quarterback Carson Palmer, they’ll likely have little problem beating Arizona’s pass protection in the noisy Superdome. But if the Cardinals can get in situations where they can be diverse in their playcalling, it’ll at least help neutralize the home-field advantage the Saints typically enjoy. 2. Help Levi Brown: The effects of a loud environment are most felt by offensive tackles — especially those that struggle against speed rushers, like the Cardinals’ Levi Brown. Though the Saints have recorded a solid-but-unspectacular four sacks through their first two games, they’re likely licking their chops at the prospect of getting to line up against Brown in pass situations. The Cardinals have to counter that, much like they did against Detroit, by having tight ends and backs help Brown on pass plays that take any time at all to develop. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The Arizona Cardinals reached their first milestone of the Bruce Arians era last week — winning their first game under the coach — with a 25-21 win over the Detroit Lions. Now they’ll have a shot at a second milestone under Arians — winning their first road game, though their second attempt will have to come at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against the New Orleans Saints. The Cardinals haven’t visited New Orleans since their lopsided playoff loss there in 2009, but are looking to build off of back-to-back strong offensive showings and a solid defensive performance against Detroit.

Aphrodite plan probably a floating unit

first_imgBy Elias HazouTHE development and production plan for the Aphrodite reservoir submitted by the Block 12 partners makes no mention of potential natural gas sales to or via Turkey, nor does it propose a linkage of Cypriot and Israeli pipelines to a common destination, which is understood to be Egypt.According to daily Politis, the 300-page blueprint confirms the partners’ preference to utilise an FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) vessel.An FPSO is a platform producing and treating the gas on-site. The gas is either piped to receiving terminals or compressed and loaded onto ships.The newspaper said also that first gas production from the reservoir is anticipated in the 2019-2020 timeframe.In the meantime, Politis reported, a feasibility study for a Cyprus-Egypt pipeline (the two countries have signed an MoU) is expected to be concluded by the end of this month.Energy ministry officials were not available for comment.Yesterday, Israel’s Delek Group released a statement, noting that the proposed outline for development of Aphrodite is based on its 2014 annual report.Delek noted, among others, that the “outline development plan is a necessary but insufficient condition to classify the contingent resources of natural gas and condensate in the Aphrodite reservoir as reserves.”Neither Delek nor the operators Noble Energy will disclose details of the development plan, as it is a confidential document.But Delek’s 2014 annual report does provide a general idea of the road map.The report, published on March 30 this year, states that the Block 12 partners plan “to establish an independent floating production facility in the Aphrodite reservoir area with an estimated daily capacity of 800 mmcf [million cubic feet]… sell natural gas at the exit point of the floating facility, and transport it in an offshore pipeline to the target markets.”The target markets cited are Cyprus and Egypt.The report further notes that “according to the operator’s initial estimation sent to the partnerships and the Cypriot government, and prior to completion of a techno-economic test plan, including full engineering design (FEED), the estimated cost of the outline of the development plan, excluding costs of constructing the pipeline to the target markets, is between $3.5bn and 4.5bn (in terms of 100 per cent).“It is emphasised that this cost includes the cost of purchasing the floating facility, but the partners intend to examine the option of leasing it for the production period of the reservoir or part thereof so as to substantially reduce the initial development costs.”The same report states that the operator (Noble) estimates to reach the stage of the final investment decision by “the end of 2016.”It adds: “According to the outline of the development plan, and subject to the Cypriot government’s approval of the development plan in the first half of 2015 and compliance with the preconditions set out above, the planned commencement date of supply of natural gas from the Aphrodite reservoir is the first half of 2020.”The full report can be downloaded from Delek’s website.Now, Cypriot authorities have 90 days in which to comment on the development plan. Should any disagreements emerge, the two sides will engage in talks.But it’s understood that the government and the Block 12 partners already see eye to eye on most of the plan’s key aspects.Last weekend, the partners– Noble Energy, Delek and Avner – announced that they had filed a declaration of commerciality (DoC) for developing Aphrodite.Commerciality signifies the existence of recoverable gas in quantities sufficient to sell and turn a profit.The Aphrodite prospect holds some 4.5 trn cubic feet of natural gas.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
