Kean winner puts Juventus on brink of eighth consecutive Serie A title

first_imgMilan: Teenage sensation Moise Kean scored the winner to put Juventus one step away from an eighth consecutive Serie A title on Saturday as a 2-1 comeback win over AC Milan pushed the champions 21 points clear at the top. Kean — the victim of racist abuse earlier this week in Cagliari — came on as a substitute and fired in the winner on 84 minutes for his fifth goal in as many league games. The Turin giants will seal a 35th Scudetto on Sunday with seven matches to spare — the earliest any team has won Serie A — if second-placed Napoli lose at home against Genoa. Juventus were playing without injured striker Cristiano Ronaldo, recovering from a thigh injury, as they prepare for their Champions League quarter-final, first leg against Ajax. But 19-year-old Kean has stepped up in the absence of the Portuguese superstar who is battling to be fit for Wednesday’s game in Amsterdam. “Even today Kean came on and scored, he is very good at that,” said Allegri of the youngster who also scored twice in two Euro 2020 qualifiers for Italy. “He’s a young man who is doing very well, but let’s leave him to be calm. “Will he play on Wednesday (against Ajax)? We’ll see, the substitutes are important as we saw today.” Krzysztof Piatek had put visiting AC Milan ahead five minutes before the break with his 21st goal of the season. Paulo Dybala pulled the hosts level from the spot on the hour mark. Roma back winning For Milan, the defeat further damages their Champions League ambitions with just one point from their last four Serie A games. Gennaro Gattuso’s side are fourth but can be overtaken by Atalanta, who are one point behind and travel to third-placed Inter Milan on Sunday. Roma, also targeting a Champions League berth, got back winning with captain Daniele De Rossi scoring the only goal against Sampdoria, to sit sixth, equal on points with Atalanta. “We still have a chance to qualify for the Champions League if we beat Lazio next Saturday,” said Gattuso, as they target a first Champions League campaign since 2013-14. The visitors had come out firing. Piatek missed a chance after two minutes, heading wide from Suso’s cross. Franck Kessie was also off target early. Sami Khedira came on for the first time since heart surgery a month ago, replacing fellow German Emre Can who went off early with an ankle sprain. Milan were denied a penalty when Alex Sandro handled Hakan Calhanoglu’s cross. The referee decided it was unintentional after a VAR review. Minutes later, Piatek broke through to beat fellow Pole Wojciech Szczesny following a blunder from former Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci, who had been widely criticised for comments he made over the racist abuse Kean suffered in Cagliari. Tiemoue Bakayoko pounced on his sloppy pass to burst through for Piatek to score. Mario Mandzukic almost grabbed the equaliser before the break but Pepe Reina, at full stretch, tipped clear the Croat’s acrobatic effort. A reckless Mateo Musacchio foul on fellow Argentine Dybala allowed the hosts to pull level. Kean came on for Dybala and 20 minutes later delivered the winner as Bonucci rushed to celebrate with the striker he had blamed for partly inciting a barrage of racist abuse in Sardinia. In Genoa, De Rossi gave new coach Claudio Ranieri just his second win in five games since taking over. The captain forced the ball in on 75 minutes after a Patrik Schick header was saved. Torino dropped out of the Europa League places with a goalless draw at Parma, as Lazio, with a game in hand, look to stay in the Champions League chase at home against Sassuolo on Sunday.last_img read more

Time for action on UNbacked treaty banning nuclear tests is now Ban

“We know that a comprehensive ban on nuclear tests is an indispensable stepping stone to a nuclear-weapon-free world,” he told the Seventh Conference on Facilitating the Entry into Force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), held in New York. Mr. Ban noted that the calls for bringing the treaty into effect are growing, both at the international political level as well as from the many victims and survivors he has met during his travels. “We gather at a moment for action,” he told the meeting, which is taking place on the margins of the General Assembly’s annual high-level debate. Out of a total listed number of 195 States, 182 have so far signed the CTBT and 155 have ratified it. For the treaty to enter into force ratification is required from the so-called Annex 2 States. Of these China, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Pakistan, and the United States have yet to ratify it. Mr. Ban welcomed indications by Guatemala, Iraq, Papua New Guinea and Thailand of their intention to ratify the treaty. He also took note of the expressions of intent of some remaining Annex 2 States and said he looked forward to their prompt action. “My message is clear: Do not wait for others to move first. Take the initiative. Lead. The time for waiting has passed,” he stated. “We must make the most of existing – and potentially short-lived – opportunities.” In the meantime, the Secretary-General urged all States to honour all existing moratoria on nuclear-weapon-test explosions, and to refrain from acting in a manner that undermines the purpose of the treaty. “We must face facts. Until we have universal adherence to a legally-binding global norm against nuclear testing, there is no guarantee that nuclear tests will not happen again,” said Mr. Ban. Today’s conference is taking place on the eve of the 15th anniversary of the treaty, which is currently nine ratifications shy of entering into force.“The treaty’s entry into force is long overdue,” Sergio Duarte, UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, told reporters, adding that the final declaration adopted by the conference this morning underlines this urgency and the importance that ratifying and signatory States attach to the treaty’s entry into force.“This conference is taking place at a time when the international community is imbued with momentum to further strengthen efforts against the proliferation of nuclear weapons and to pursuing a world free of nuclear weapons,” he said, delivering a statement on behalf of the Secretary-General. “The CTBT is indispensable to these efforts.” 23 September 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today urged all remaining States to seize the moment and sign and ratify the global treaty banning nuclear tests, with the aim of bringing it into force by 2012. read more

Sierra Wireless buying In Motion Technology for US21million

Wireless technology company Sierra Wireless (TSX:SW) has signed a friendly deal to buy In Motion Technology Inc. for US$21 million in cash.Sierra Wireless shares fell 3% to $23.46 in Toronto on the news.In Motion makes rugged and secure mobile routers for vehicles.It generated US$15 million of revenue in 2013, with a gross margin of 50 per cent of revenue.“This acquisition is consistent with Sierra’s strategy to leverage its strong balance sheet to acquire companies with solid customers in high-growth M2M verticals with an accretive margin profile versus Sierra’s M2M module business,” Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley said in a research note.Following the acquisition, he thinks Sierra’s higher-margin Enterprise Solutions business is well-positioned for growth of 15% to 20% due to its leading market share positions in areas such as public safety.“We believe management still plans to make additional acquisitions to bolster its M2M solutions offering,” Mr. Walkley said, raising his target price on Sierra shares to US$26 from US$20.Sierra, which makes a range of communications equipment, says the businesses are complementary and the deal will broaden and strengthen its portfolio.Sierra says it is aiming for between US$112 and US$116 million of revenue for its fourth quarter, according to guidance released in November.The deal, which requires court approval, is expected to close in early March.Canadian Press with files from Financial Post read more

BC opposition to Northern Gateway puts focus on westeast pipeline Alward

B.C. opposition to Northern Gateway puts focus on west-east pipeline: Alward by Kevin Bissett, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 6, 2013 4:41 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FREDERICTON – British Columbia’s opposition to the Northern Gateway project puts greater attention on a proposal to build a west-to-east oil pipeline, New Brunswick Premier David Alward said on the eve of a meeting with his Alberta counterpart, Alison Redford.The two will get together Friday to discuss the idea of shipping oil from Alberta as far east as Saint John in their continued efforts to promote a development they say will bring jobs and ensure greater energy security for the country.Their meeting comes a week after the government of B.C. told a federal review panel that the Northern Gateway should not go ahead as it’s proposed — a declaration that Alward says could lift his case, though not at the expense of that project.“It brings into focus the importance of this project,” Alward said Thursday in an interview.“We need to see a project in British Columbia as much as we need to see a project go all the way to the East Coast because we need to see opportunities for diversified markets.”Redford will deliver a speech to the New Brunswick legislature Friday morning before heading to Saint John to speak with the city’s board of trade and tour the Irving Oil refinery, Canada’s largest.Her visit comes four months after Alward conducted a similar trip to Alberta, where he toured the oilsands.“I’m looking forward to her message about the potential of the pipeline and why she believes, just as I do, that it makes sense, not only for our two provinces, but for all Canadians,” Alward said.The meeting also comes before a June 17 deadline by TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP) to receive binding commitments from oil producers. It needs those commitments before deciding whether to convert an existing 3,000-kilometre natural gas pipeline to carry crude into Quebec, with the possibility of a 1,400-kilometre extension to Saint John.Alward said he is confident the proposal, known as the Energy East Pipeline project, can stand on merit.“We will see the results in the coming weeks,” he said.If there is sufficient commitment for the TransCanada project, the company would need to file necessary regulatory applications.TransCanada has said the project could begin shipping as much as 850,000 barrels of oil per day in late 2017.Geoff Hill, an oil and gas sector leader at Deloitte Canada, said there is a need to strengthen Canada’s access to markets when it comes to exporting oil.“We are in dire straits right now in terms of getting our product out, ” Hill said.“This pipeline, in our opinion, is very exciting for Canada, for all the provinces in between as well, and it’s a very solid opportunity for us.”Hill agreed with Alward’s position that the west-to-east pipeline can co-exist with the Northern Gateway proposal by Enbridge (TSX:ENB).“These projects need to be considered Canadian projects as opposed to provincial projects because the fundamental economics say that, let alone the fact that as a country we need to set this as a priority,” he said. read more

Pollution 100 tonnes de gazole se déversent dans le Nil

first_imgPollution : 100 tonnes de gazole se déversent dans le NilÉgypte – Plus de 100 tonnes de gazole se sont déversées dans le Nil samedi dernier, après qu’une barge pétrolière a coulé dans le fleuve au niveau d’Assouan, dans le sud de l’Égypte.La barge qui appartenait à la Nile Company for River Transportation contenait 240 tonnes de gazole, rapporte l’agence officielle Mena. Le bateau se serait soudainement incliné en raison du bas niveau des eaux avant de couler, a expliqué son commandant Yasser Hussein. L’homme a été arrêté.À lire aussiTote bag, G20 et paternité, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 18 juinPrès de la moitié du pétrole que transportait la barge s’est répandu dans le Nil près d’Assouan, à 980 kilomètres au sud du Caire. Le gouverneur de la ville, Moustafa al-Sayyed, a assuré que “toutes les mesures ont été prises pour nettoyer” la zone polluée, et pour protéger les stations d’eau potable. Ainsi, toutes les stations du secteur ont été fermées en attendant que l’eau soit analysée. Mohammed Moustafa, un haut responsable de la province, a affirmé que les résultats des analyses n’ont révélé aucun danger pour la population, ajoutant que le gazole déversé dans le Nil n’aurait aucun impact sur l’écosystème du fleuve. “Ce n’est pas un gros déversement, ce sont de petites taches de pétrole et, vu la taille du Nil, cela n’affectera pas l’environnement du fleuve” a-t-il estimé.Le 13 septembre 2010 à 15:45 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Le gobie barbu un poisson ultra résistant

first_imgLe gobie barbu : un poisson ultra résistantLe gobie barbu est capable de survivre dans des eaux hypoxiques et toxiques où les autres vertébrés meurent habituellement. Des chercheurs africains et norvégiens viennent de percer son secret.Vivant au large de la Namibie et de l’Afrique du Sud, le gobie barbu est un poisson de petite taille qui a réussi à s’adapter à ce milieu où les eaux sont pourtant très pauvres en oxygène. La surpêche massive de la région a entraîné la disparition de la sardine et c’est le gobie qui constitue désormais la source de nourriture des poissons plus gros, des oiseaux, des phoques et des pingouins.À lire aussiUn plongeur se fait attaquer par un lion de merDu fait de l’environnement particulièrement défavorable, les chercheurs pensaient qu’aucun poisson ne pouvait survivre dans cette zone. En effet, entre les méduses, le sulfure d’hydrogène toxique contenu par les sédiments et la boue et l’absence d’oxygène, il était peu probable qu’un poisson comme le gobie puisse s’adapter. L’explication est simple : “Le gobie nage dans les fonds hypoxiques la journée où il retient son souffle tout en mangeant de la boue. La nuit, il nage vers la surface pour évacuer sa dette en oxygène et digérer sa nourriture”, explique la biologiste Anne Christine Utne Palm. D’autre part, “tandis que les prédateurs évitent les méduses, les gobies se reposent juste au-dessus d’elles et nagent librement entre leurs tentacules urticants. C’est comme cela qu’ils échappent à leurs prédateurs et prospèrent”. Cette découverte va permettre de développer la gestion écosystémique des pêches de la zone.Le 12 décembre 2010 à 19:05 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Owners And Operators Of Two Houston Poker Clubs Arrested For Money Laundering

first_imgWikimedia CommonsThe Harris County District Attorney’s Office and the Houston Police Department are going after two local poker clubs for allegedly engaging in organized crime and money laundering.District Attorney Kim Ogg announced Wednesday the arrest of nine people who own and operate the Post Oak Poker Club and the Prime Social Poker Room. Both establishments are located in west Houston.The DA’s Office and HPD worked together on a two-year investigation that led to the arrests and subsequent first-degree felony charges. Ogg said in a news release that players are not being targeted.The clubs’ bank accounts — which have had millions of dollars flow through them — have also been frozen. The investigation isn’t an isolated incident. Last year, five people, including a Houston Police officer, were arrested on gambling and money laundering charges as part of an investigation by the DA’s Office and HPD in the Chinatown area.Gambling is illegal in Texas. However, as reported by the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, state law offers a defense against prosecution when gambling takes place in a private place where no person receives an economic benefit beyond personal winnings.

The Bee Gees were Formed due to a Happy Accident

first_imgThe Bee Gees left a lasting impression on the charts, across a variety of musical genres. Yet it might never had happened were it not for a happy accident which set them on the course for superstardom. Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb were young children living in the suburbs of Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester, England. According to the New York Times 2012 obituary of Robin, “the family lived on the edge of poverty. Their father, Hugh, a drummer and bandleader, encouraged his sons to sing. Their mother, Barbara, was also a singer.” As far as the family was concerned, music was a constant companion.The Bee Gees, 1977Originally from the Isle of Man, the brothers would soon cross the globe to Australia with their parents, sister Lesley and baby brother Andy. However, in this relatively brief window of time (1955 – 58), a fledgling version of the Bee Gees was born.They weren’t called that at the time, however. Initially, the handle they went by was The Rattlesnakes. Their destination? The local movie house. “The neighborhood cinema round the corner, owned by the Gaumont concern, was the place where the young kids watched a movie on Saturday,” writes the Gibb Service International website. “During the break kids could lip-sync to their favorite records.”Bee Gees plaque at Maitland Terrace/Strang Road intersection in Union Mills, Isle of Man. Photo by Gregory J Kingsley CC BY-SA 3.0Together with pals Paul Frost (drums) and Kenny Horrocks (who played bass using a tea chest) they went down to chance their arm. It was the run up to Christmas and the Rattlesnakes had been prepping their debut performance for days. Then, “the next Saturday, with a breakable 78 r.p.m. record under their arm, they left for the theatre.”There might well have been ice on the ground in Manchester at that time of year. Either way, a group of eager young boys and some vulnerable vinyl made bad bedfellows. Whatever was on the disc wasn’t going to be played that night — it broke. So they decided on a swift change of plan. The lads sang and played live.The Bee Gees in 1967. Left to right: Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, Vince Melouney, Maurice Gibb and Colin PetersenThis gutsy move not only received a good reception, it started them on the road to success. “The next day there was a picture of them in the paper,” the site says. “Now they got a taste of stardom, they started to perform on street corners regularly.”Related Video: The Forgotten Beatle – Whatever Happened to their Early Drummer Pete Best?From the mid-Sixties onwards, the trio began recording albums and releasing hits. They also had a new name — the Bee Gees. Accounts differ on how this came to be. While the initials of “the Brothers Gibb” is a popular explanation, it was reportedly coined by the Australian DJ Bill Gates who called them the “BGs”. He’d met the Gibbs by way of Bill Goode, a speedway driver, and promoter who hired the brothers to perform trackside. The Gs reportedly come from Gates, Goode and Barry Gibb, while the E’s arrived later!The Bee Gees performing at The Midnight Special in 1973Hits included Massachusetts (1967), I’ve Gotta Get A Message To You (1968), Tragedy (1979) and You Win Again (1987). At the height of their powers they were supplying disco dancefloor fillers for the iconic movie Saturday Night Fever (1977) such as “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever”, though they weren’t particularly invested in the world of medallions and mirrorballs.Quoting Robin from 2010, the New York Times says, “We always thought we were writing R&B grooves, what they called blue-eyed soul. We never heard the word disco; we just wrote groove songs we could harmonize strongly to, and with great melodies. The fact you could dance to them, we never thought about.”The Bee Gees performing on Dutch television show Twien in 1968. Photo by NCRV – Beeld en Geluidwiki – Gallery: Twien CC BY-SA 3.0 nlTheir focus on emotions and distinctive harmonies emphasized a strong family bond. Barry is the last surviving member of the gang and continues to record. His last solo album, In The Now, was released in 2016.Read another story from us: Diana Rigg: The Game of Thrones Star Beat the Odds to Get What she DeservedA 2009 interview on the Roxborogh Report site with Gibb reveals the sense of humor that always kept them together. He said, “they did break the mould with Robin, but they also broke the mould with Mo, you know, and I just think they broke a number of things with me! (laughs) … We were The Goons, and the three of us all took those roles in all forms of life. Whether we were onstage or not, we were Spike Milligan, Peters Sellers and Harry Secombe.”Were it not for that fateful night in Manchester, the world may never have watched this relationship unfold.last_img read more

That information is now readily available to both physicians and patients.Physicians and other medical personnel can review the cumulative radiation a patient has received through Intermountain’s electronic medical record system. Patients can view their own radiation history by signing up for Intermountain’s free “My Health” program, which provides information through a secure password-protected portal on the Internet. In addition to providing the cumulative radiation history, patients and physicians are also given access to educational materials on the risks and benefits of medical radiation.“With this information, clinicians and staff have reduced radiation, avoided unnecessary treatments, and found alternatives which do not involve X-rays,” said Donald Lappé, M.D., medical director of Intermountain’s Cardiovascular Clinical Program.While a patient’s individual situation typically dictates the imaging procedure needed, knowing a patient’s cumulative radiation exposure can help physicians and medical caregivers determine which type of imaging test is best. The benefits from a procedure usually outweigh the slightly increased cancer risk from exposure to radiation, but the potential risk of radiation should be considered before these imaging tests are performed. In some cases, equivalent information can be obtained with a medical test that does not use radiation, such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.“Having such information available is especially helpful for children with certain chronic health problems, as they may need to have many tests involving radiation during their lifetime,” says Keith White, M.D., medical director of Intermountain’s Imaging Services. “The cancer risk from an imaging test is lower the older a person gets, and the highest risk is for children.”For more information: www.intermountainhealthcare.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Computed Tomography (CT) | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: New Advances in CT Imaging Technology Cynthia McColl… read more Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Senate plowing ahead on 612 billion defense policy bill

first_img Top Stories “By tradition, this legislation has been passed with bipartisan support, reflecting our mutual commitment to national security, but apparently Sen. Reid has decided this year that doing his job is a waste of time,” said Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., the majority leader in the House, which has passed its own version of the defense policy bill.Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he expects at least 100 to 200 amendments to be introduced to bill on the Senate side. He predicted a vote by the end of next week.The White House takes issue with several provisions.Topping the list is a move to put billions of dollars of defense spending into an emergency war-fighting fund, which is not subject to spending limits. Democrats say this is largely an end-run around the spending caps that Republicans and Democrats imposed in 2011. President Barack Obama said he will not support a budget that locks in the limits.“There is budgetary fakery in here,” said Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., who opposes the bill along with Rhode Island Sen. Jack Reed, the ranking Democrat on the committee.McCain said it wasn’t his first choice to put $38 billion in the war-fighting account, but that the spending limits are the law. Unless the caps are lifted, he said the bill’s approach is the only way to give the president every dollar he requested and defense officials insist is the minimum required to defend the country. The White House also opposes provisions that it considers unwarranted restrictions on Obama’s ability to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Obama says keeping Guantanamo open weakens national security by draining resources, emboldening violent extremists and damaging U.S. relations with allies.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvementcenter_img WASHINGTON (AP) — The GOP-led Senate plowed ahead Wednesday on a $612 billion annual defense policy bill despite a White House veto threat and the Democratic leader’s claim that it is an exercise in futility.“The president said he’s going to veto it so I think it really is kind of a waste of time,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.Republicans challenged Reid, saying that supporting U.S. troops is not a waste of time. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Sponsored Stories McCain said it’s his job to avoid putting U.S. troops at risk and without the additional funds, “we do that.”He called the White House veto threat “misguided and irresponsible.”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he doesn’t back the spending caps either, especially because they have hindered the ability to modernize the armed forces and meet the demands of current operations. But he accused the White House of “saber rattling” and said blocking the bill was not in the national interest.“No defense authorization bill will ever be perfect, but this is legislation that reflects a good faith effort to authorize programs in the political reality we live in,” McConnell said.Democrats are drafting an amendment to the bill to lift the cap, shift the war-fighting money to the core defense budget and set aside an equal amount for domestic programs.Obama also is opposed to parts of the bill that would prevent a new round of base closures, bar the retirement of the A-10 aircraft, which provides close air support for ground troops, and push the White House to provide lethal assistance to Ukraine forces fighting Russia-backed rebels — something Obama so far has refrained from doing.

AGTA to close its doors after 29 years

first_imgThe association of Greek Cypriot travel agents (AGTA) in the UK will be disbanding after 29 years in operation, it emerged on Friday.The decision was made last week during a meeting of the board which said that the closure will be officially completed in about a month.In a memo quoted by the Cyprus News Agency, the association said the decision was unavoidable since in recent years it had lost all or most its sponsors and funding.“This has gradually led to the depletion of the association’s cash reserves, something that signaled the beginning of the end for AGTA,” the memo said.The result was that AGTA could no longer effectively perform the role for which it had been founded, to promote Cyprus tourism in the UK.Its existence has become pointless, especially “since it was no longer recognised for what it represented by those who should” recognise it. You May Likeliving.alot.comBest hairstyles based on your face shape.living.alot.comUndoFood Eat Safe9 Foods to Avoid With ArthritisFood Eat SafeUndoJobParade.comRowland Heights Help Wanted!
