First virus-era Chinese expedition measures Everest

first_imgThe exact height of the massive mountain, which straddles the China-Nepal border, remains a point of debate.The most recent official Chinese survey in 2005 measured the peak at 8,844.43 meters, not including the snow and icepack on the summit, while Nepal’s official figure includes the Everest’s frosty crown and is four meters higher.There also has been speculation over whether recent seismic events, particularly a powerful 2015 earthquake in Nepal, had affected the mountain’s height.State-run Xinhua news agency have touted the expedition as a chance to achieve a highly accurate measurement, saying survey equipment will ping signals off a Chinese satellite and that other “advanced domestic surveying and mapping instruments” will be employed. It was not clear when the survey results would be released, but China and Nepal agreed last year to reveal the findings in a joint announcement.The expedition set out on April 30, but was delayed twice due to bad weather.Climbers only have a short window of opportunity to make the risky ascent during the main spring climbing season before the approaching summer monsoon brings dangerous climatic conditions.The 2019 climbing season saw record overcrowding on Mount Everest, which led to 11 deaths as climbers waited hours in lines to reach the summit with dwindling oxygen supplies. A group of Chinese surveyors on Wednesday became the first team this year to summit Mount Everest, where they will try to pinpoint the height of the world’s tallest peak using satellite technology.The state-backed expedition is the first this year to reach the top of the mountain after China and Nepal in March suspended the busy spring climbing season due to coronavirus fears. It remains suspended.Under clear blue skies, the team set up surveying equipment at the peak and expedition leaders later popped bottles of champagne at their assault camp below the summit, according to a video livestream provided by Chinese state media.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Maternal Mortality Committee proposed by Leising gains support

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — A bill authored by State Sen. Jean Leising, Republican from Oldenburg, to establish a statewide maternal mortality review committee recently passed the full Senate by a vote of 49 to 0.Senate Bill 142 would require a health care provider or health care facility that has a patient who dies of a maternal mortality to report the death to the committee. The bill also allows the State Department of Health to review morbidity rates. SB 142 would also set forth immunity provisions for the provider or facility.Under the bill, maternal mortality refers to a death that occurs through up to one year after pregnancy that is related to or aggravated by pregnancy or management of pregnancy.“Too many mothers are dying during or shortly after the birth of their child in our state, and we need to find the cause,” Leising said. “Indiana’s death rate for mothers is currently twice the national average. Establishing this committee would provide us with the data we need to help find a solution to this issue.”SB 142 will now move to the House of Representatives.last_img read more

Ndidi reveals Rodgers’ impact on his development

first_img The Nigeria international has developed into one of the best defensive midfielders in the English top-flight since joining the Foxes from Belgian side Genk in 2017. The 23-year-old has had a number of managers since his arrival at the King Power Stadium, including Claudio Ranieri, Craig Shakespeare and Claude Puel. The Super Eagles star, however, feels he experienced more growth and understanding of the game under the Northern Irish tactician. “When Brendan came, I saw myself growing and understanding where I can actually grow to,” Ndidi told LCFCQ, as per the club website. “It’s hard to explain. For me, I could see a path, I could see things differently. Growing in Leicester, I’m trying to understand the game, and now, I can understand it in different directions.Advertisement “He’s given me a wider view of where this is supposed to go to make me even better. The statistics are okay, but I can be better than that – that’s the way I can explain it.” Ndidi has featured 31 times for the King Power Stadium outfit in this campaign across all competitions under the tutelage of the former Liverpool manager. read also:Ndidi: Leicester City must secure Champions League ticket The midfielder currently ranks third in Premier League top tacklers with 96 tackles behind teammate Ricardo Pereira and Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Leicester are winless in their last two games after recording draws with Watford and Brighton & Hove Albion. Ndidi, who has made 113 league appearances since joining the Foxes, will hope to help his side bounce back to winning ways when they take on Chelsea on Sunday.

Liverpool face Anfield ban if fans don’t stop partying in streets

first_img Loading… “The threat from this pandemic will end. It will then be safe to celebrate the right way. “For the good of your city, club and, most importantly, those who are at highest risk of dying from this disease, stay at home. The danger has not gone away and people are dying. The celebration can wait.” The Premier League declined to comment but the local Ground Safety Advisory Group may come under pressure to recommend revoking the safety certificate Anfield needs to stage matches. GSAG chief, Councillor Wendy Simon, had warned fans to “strongly adhere to the guidance on social distancing around the Covid-19 pandemic”. In April, Mayor Anderson was slammed by the club, ex-players and supporters for saying restarting the season was a “non-starter” because Reds fans would defy lockdown to celebrate at Anfield. Yesterday he tweeted: “More in sorrow than anger, like most LFC fans & residents I condemn those that brought a negative focus on @LFC and our City. “The pics, videos showing people’s behaviour is being talked about instead of the fantastic achievement of LFC. Thank you to those fans who have listened.” Jurgen Klopp’s team have three home games left — Aston Villa on Sunday, then Burnley before Chelsea on the penultimate weekend of the season. The Blues match is when the Prem plan to present the trophy. But recent events could scupper those plans and further tarnish the long-awaited achievement, with skipper Jordan Henderson forced to raise the Prem trophy in a neutral venue, rather than an empty Anfield. Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, who was pictured in the city centre on Friday, is unlikely to face any action from employers Sky Sports. It is understood the ex-defender insists he and his son maintained social distancing when they were out — including when asked for photographs like the one circulating on social media. read also:League title allows Liverpool to get ball rolling on ambitious swap deal Police raised concerns about staging some home games during Project Restart’s planning stage.

Liverpool celebrated at a hotel on Thursday but are all training together in their team bubble and have all tested negative forCovid-19. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Champions Liverpool face being banned from playing their remaining home games at Anfield unless fans stop partying on the streets. Fans celebrated outside Anfield, Liverpool’s home ground The club joined Merseyside Police, the City Council and Mayor Joe Anderson in condemning some of their own supporters for “wholly unacceptable” behaviour, which “risked public safety” as thousands swarmed into the city centre, despite repeated warnings over the spread of coronavirus. The iconic Liver Building was set on fire by a firework on Friday as fans ignored social-distancing rules and dropped tons of litter while marking the club’s first top-flight title for 30 years. A joint statement from Liverpool, the police and the council said: “Several thousand people turned up at the Pier Head on Friday and some chose to ignore the social distancing guidance and risk public safety. “Our city is still in a public health crisis and this behaviour is wholly unacceptable. “The potential danger of a second peak of Covid-19 still exists and we need to work together to make sure we don’t undo everything that has been achieved. “When it is safe to do so, we will all work together to arrange a victory parade when everyone can celebrate. “Until that time, the safety of our city and our people continues to be our No1 priority.” Merseyside Police issued a dispersal order on Friday night covering a large part of Liverpool city centre and it will remain in force until tomorrow. Chief Constable Andy Cooke confirmed 15 arrests during Friday’s chaotic scenes. He tweeted a statement yesterday, which read: “Those who gathered last night have potentially increased the danger of a further rise in the pandemic. “In addition, the actions of the minority were not only irresponsible but criminal. It is tarnishing the reputation of our city and Liverpool FC. “Children and families were present and heavy-handed police intervention was therefore not appropriate. “Later, 15 people were arrested for violent disorder and my officers were subjected to a number of violent confrontations. This is not acceptable. “In relation to those involved in criminal or anti-social behaviour, we will be looking at CCTV images and body-worn cameras to identify those responsible and take action.last_img read more

Alves’ 6 for 1 stuns, as Demerara run roughshod over President’s XI at Bourda

first_img… Berbice wreck Essequibo by 10 wicketsBy Clifton Ross DEMERARA top-order batsman Joshua Alves fell for a duck, but returned to capture mind-boggling figures of 6-1, as they inflicted a 117-run loss on President’s XI, to wrap up Round 3 of the GCB/Dave West Indian Imports U-15 Inter-county tournament. It was a truly lopsided affair at Bourda ground as President’s XI, fresh off a win in Round 2, were stunned by spinners Alves, who accounted for majority of the top-order on his way to 6 wickets, and Riyad Latif who chipped in with stingy figures of 3 for 4.Demerara made 163 in their 50 overs thanks to Romeo Deonarine (20) and top-scorer Hemraj Harriprashad (29); who stood out as the primary run-getters in the innings.A combined effort from captain Stephon Sankar (2-18) and his deputy Tulsiram Ramkarran (3-29), kept a tight leash on the Demerara boys. Completely opposite to the approach in the last round, Alves removed the top four President’s XI batsmen for scores under 10, as no batsman managed double digits, in a pretty shabby batting display.The top-scorer Daniel Mohabir was removed for 9 runs by Latif, leaving Alves to claim two more scalps and Deonarine (1-0) putting the final nail in the coffin as Demerara romped to victory. At Lusignan, Berbice continued their dominance as they dismantled Essequibo by 10 wickets after successfully ending on 44-0 chasing 43 for victory.Vincent Bruce hit 14 but no other batter managed double digits, as the young spin wizard Salim Khan snared 7 wickets while his partner in crime, Matthew Pottaya claimed 3 wickets in a clinical effort.Berbice captain and opener Rampertab Ramnauth continued his run-fest, scoring 19 not out while Nyron Hicks (4*) held his wicket as extras did the rest to see them home. The final round bowls off tomorrow.last_img read more

LeBron James, Lonzo Ball take the night off for Lakers; could return together Wednesday

first_imgJames sat with a similar timeframe in mind. The Lakers have played every other night since their preseason opener in San Diego. While James has yet to play in the second half of any game, Walton thought it would be wise to find a spot for him to rest.“I think it’s been going on 11-12 days with a double-day in there, and he’s been great,” he said. “So it’s more of just, look, we’ve got to be ready for the regular season. Same idea. Tomorrow is off too and he already went and got a workout in at the facility this morning. So it’s more just making sure that when the regular season starts, we’re peaking.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersBut the team has also slow-played Ball’s rehabilitation from offseason knee surgery, holding him out of all preseason games so far despite saying he’s a full participant in practice. Walton said the timing of Wednesday’s game, when Ball will have two days off then be able to practice twice beforehand, was better suited to how the Lakers want to handle his recovery.“He’s close – and again, it’s just us playing it safe right now,” Walton said. “We have tomorrow off. So it’s a nice two-day rest where he can just get treatment and then we got two days of solid practice before the next game. So it just felt like the right thing to do. So, he’s getting real close.”Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed center_img OFFICIATING STRUGGLESAfter racking up 25 fouls against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday, the Lakers are still struggling with the new officiating emphasis on freedom of movement. Walton acknowledged as much before Saturday’s game.“I know across the league that’s a common theme right now,” he said. “But we have to control our camp and what we do. If they’re calling fouls, we have to adjust to that and play better, show our hands better. And we will – guys want to.”While the Lakers have had practice officials in practice, Walton said the coaching staff tends to direct them to call more closely or less closely depending on what the Lakers want to see. In a more physical practice, fewer fouls are called at Walton’s direction.What’s left is more film study, Walton said, and wrapping their heads around the new reality in the NBA: Putting hands on opponents will be called more often.CALDWELL-POPE STARTINGThe Lakers made a non-rest related change to the starting lineup, putting Kentavious Caldwell-Pope back in at shooting guard over Josh Hart. Walton said it had little to do with Hart’s performance in his last two games, both as a starter, but more mixing up the rotations.“Again, just looking at different groups together,” he said. “And one of our themes this year is it doesn’t matter who’s starting. Everyone’s gonna play a role. Everyone’s gonna help us win. Everyone’s gonna finish games for us depending on how we’re games are going.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers PreviousLos Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, left, speaks with center Ivica Zubac during a timeout in the first half of an NBA preseason basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Anaheim, Calif., Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

For Lonzo Ball, it was his fourth.But Coach Luke Walton said he expects both to be available Wednesday in Las Vegas, when the Lakers play the Golden State Warriors – setting up James and Ball to play together for the first time as teammates.“That’s one of the things I still need to see that we haven’t had is what lineups look like when both of those guys are playing,” Walton said. “I’m excited and hopeful, but again, we’re going to take it day by day. If any setbacks or whatnot, then we won’t rush it, again. But I would expect Wednesday that happens.”The Lakers have talked excitedly about that possibility since James signed in July: Along with Rajon Rondo, having James and Ball on the floor at the same time could help the team become the best ball-movers in the league. All three were among the top 10 in the league in assists per game last year, and all three are seen as catalysts for the fast-break style the Lakers want to play.

U.S. Open 2019: Tiger Woods refuses to blame pain as cold weather triggers issues

first_imgHowever, the Masters champion allayed any fears during his post-round news conference, telling reporters: “When it’s cold like this everything is achy. It’s just part of the deal.”It’s been like that for years. The forces have to go somewhere. And if they’re not in the lower back, they’re in the neck, and if not, they’re in the mid-back and if not they go to the knee. You name it.”Birdie at the last.@TigerWoods is even through 54 holes.pic.twitter.com/ljeAnlOocQ— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) June 15, 2019Asked if his neck impacted any shots, Woods replied: “Yeah, it does. As I say my back impacts every shot I play, it’s just part of the deal.”Woods refused to use it as an excuse, adding: “I’ve had my chances to post good rounds today, this week. Today was a perfect example, I fought back and if I was able to clean up my rounds the first two days, I would be closer to the lead than I am now.”It was another difficult day for Woods, who had five bogeys to go with five birdies as he posted his third consecutive round in the 70s.Woods’ putter got him in trouble on the front nine after missing a putt for par at the seventh and then another for birdie at the eighth, which put him 1 over at the turn. But he did make some nice putts, like the one at the fifth hole, which was part of his lone set of back-to-back birdies for the day.”I got off to an awful start, and clawed it around, but still gave myself a chance for tomorrow, which is positive,” Woods said. “And we’ll see what the weather forecast is for tomorrow.”There are a lot of guys ahead of me right now. Seems like everyone is doing what I was supposed to do earlier which is play 2- to 4-under par through the first seven. We’ll see what they do coming in. I was playing with An Byeong-hun today and he played a hell of a round today. Missed the ball in the correct spots and that’s what you have to do in this space.” Tiger Woods felt aches and pains as the cold weather in California flared up his injury-ravaged body but the 15-time major champion refused to use it as an excuse following his third-round display at the U.S. Open.Woods produced another battling performance at Pebble Beach, where the former world No. 1 carded a 71 to be even par after 54 holes on Saturday.
