Nadal Tops Federer In 3 Sets To Reach 12th French Open Final (Pics, Video)

first_imgPARIS — Rafael Nadal made quick work of Roger Federer in their first French Open meeting since 2011, beating his rival 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 Friday in strong wind to reach his 12th final at Roland Garros.Nadal has never lost a semifinal at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament. Never lost a final, either.And he’s never lost to Federer in Paris, improving to 6-0. Overall, Nadal leads their series 24-15. Federer had won their past five meetings, but those were all on hard courts.It’s a whole different task to take on Nadal on clay, in general, and at the French Open, in particular, where his one victory away from a 12th championship, which would be more than any man or woman has won at any of the Grand Slam tournaments.Spain’s Rafael Nadal plays a shot against Switzerland’s Roger Federer during their semifinal match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, Friday, June 7, 2019. (AP Photo/Christophe Ena)In Sunday’s final, the No. 2-seeded Nadal will take on either No. 1 Novak Djokovic or No. 4 Dominic Thiem.This was the first time since 2011 the four top-seeded men were in the semifinals at Roland Garros.Like so many times before, it was Nadal’s topspin-heavy lefty forehand, his relentless ball-chasing and his return game that gave Federer fits.Frustrated the guy so much that the generally stoic Federer smacked a tennis ball toward the stands after getting broken to trail 2-1 in the third set.It would soon be over.Switzerland’s Roger Federer serves against Spain’s Rafael Nadal during their semifinal match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, Friday, June 7, 2019. (AP Photo/Christophe Ena)Federer, who was playing at Roland Garros for the first time since 2015, hadn’t lost a set through five victories over the past two weeks. With an aggressive, head-to-the-net style, he had been broken a total of only four times by those opponents.Nadal easily exceeded that in a span of three sets across less than 2½ hours, winning 6 of 13 return games.The 37-year-old Federer, whose 20 Grand Slam titles are a record for a man, was serenaded off the court by spectators’ chants of his first name. He raised his right arm for a quick wave as he walked away — perhaps for the final time. He missed the tournament in 2016 with a bad back, then skipped it the next two years to prepare for grass and hard courts.He looked quite good in his return, until running into his old nemesis.By: Howard Fendrich, AP Tennis WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

A journey to selftransformation

first_imgThe ongoing exhibition of the works of artist Jyoti Tyagi are depictions of the artist’s inward transformation through her art. Thus, the process of art in her case is not restricted to mechanical applications of the tenets of art making but to a transfiguration of her forms into the language of the spirit and the soul.The art show will go on until March 17, at Rabindra Bhawan, Lalit Kala Akademi. While the spiritual process is ongoing as an undercurrent, what one witness on display are elements of the organic life process visible through her myriad feminine forms, entwined, uplifted, free-flowing and sitting in deep meditation. “These elements are going through an organic life process that brings about a metabolic change in our soul. It steers us towards righteousness and teaches us how to remain balanced, satisfied and centered, in the hustle of life,” comments the artist. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainHaving made it her mission to express her inner calling, this artist has used the feminine form as her leit motif. These are then displayed in variable settings, visible through the elements of bhūmi (earth), jala (water), agni (fire), marut, (air or wind) and akash (ether). Incidentally, what she has left unsaid but distinct in her works is her close adherence to the Vedic principle of vyom or space, by making her central form distinct and the surrounds a pristine space, leaving the viewer unrestricted viewing opportunities. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardLike a humble ‘student’ of her Muse, this art maker draws her inspiration from nature, where she is especially influenced by ancient tree forms and sinuous branches that seem to mirror femininity in their contours. Also, the ocean depths and the inner limits of a candle are her chosen identities. Her message, therefore, conveys the vital principle of integration that governs nature and our lives. With a grounded philosophy, a strong figurative form and a choice of deep tones of the colour palette, this exhibition brings about a ‘sangam’ of thought, feeling and execution, into a perfect blend.last_img read more

UN peacekeepers target of angry Congolese as standoff continues in eastern DRC

22 October 2007For the second time in a week United Nations personnel in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have become the target of angry civilians caught up in the continuing military standoff between government and rebel forces. On Saturday, a UN patrol was obstructed by some 500 internally displaced persons (IDPs) near a cantonment site for recently disarmed fighters near the town of Rumangabo in North Kivu province, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters in New York.The protesters chanted anti-UN slogans and threw stones at the patrol. They also demanded that the peacekeepers take direct military action against dissident general Laurent Nkunda.Both North Kivu and South Kivu provinces, which sit at the far eastern edge of the vast DRC, have been the scene of deadly clashes in recent months between Government forces – known as FARDC – and soldiers loyal to Gen. Nkunda. The UN mission in the DRC (known as MONUC) estimates there are as many as 700,000 IDPs in North Kivu alone as a result of fighting this year.Saturday’s incident is the latest of several hostile acts directed at blue helmets. Last week, locals in North Kivu threw stones at UN peacekeepers after they evacuated members of the FARDC during recent clashes. There was also a report that FARDC soldiers arriving into Goma had a “less-than-friendly attitude” towards UN troops, according to MONUC Force Commander Gen. Babacar Gaye.Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Gen. Gaye stressed that MONUC’s mandate is to help the Government restore its authority across the entire country, and that its priority is to ensure the security of the local population.The mission also escorts humanitarian convoys in North Kivu and has deployed mobile operating bases to make it easier to reach people living in the displaced camps, the General added.According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the humanitarian situation in North Kivu is precarious, with 143,000 people having been displaced just in the past four weeks due to insecurity in the province. read more

Irving Oil spending 60M on maintaining Canadas largest oil refinery

SAINT JOHN, N.B. — New Brunswick’s Irving Oil says it will spend $60-million over the next six weeks as 1,700 extra workers are brought in to perform scheduled maintenance at Canada’s largest oil refinery in Saint John.The company says the work will continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until the project is completed.Known in the refining industry as a “turnaround,” the project is aimed at improving safety, reliability and environmental performance.In total, about 2,000 people will be involved with the project, including 1,700 additional tradespeople, most of them from New Brunswick.General manager Mark Sherman says the refinery can process more than 320,000 barrels of oil per day and typically exports 80% of its production to the United States.The company says gasoline exported from the refinery represents 19% of all U.S. gasoline imports. read more

Joe Schmidt It would be great to have Jonny Sexton back in

first_imgIRELAND HEAD COACH Joe Schmidt has declared ‘it would be great to have Jonathan Sexton back in the country’. Schmidt was speaking at a post-Six Nations media briefing at the Aviva Stadium this morning and raised the spectre of Sexton returning to Ireland next season.Sexton, speaking on 2FM’s Game On last night, appeared to put an end to the speculation once and for all as, addressing the speculation of a summer move, he declared. “That’s not going to happen.”Schmidt, while reopening the debate somewhat, believes Sexton’s integrity will see him remain in Paris for at least another season. “One of the problems with that,” said Schmidt, “is that Jonny is pretty much a man of his word. He’s committed to Racing and it would be really hard to see him coming out of there.”The New Zealander added, “If there was a chance [of a return], I’d be delighted.” Sexton and Schmidt discuss tactics in training. Source: James Crombie/INPHOSchmidt added that he has spoken with Racing coach Laurent Labit about engendering a closer working relationship next season. Game management for the out-half, who had two and a half weeks off [including a wedding and honeymoon] after the Lions Tour, is key.“Jonny playing 13 games in 12 weeks at the start of the season was not Racing Métro’s intent,” said Schmidt. “They have the same priority as us in making sure Jonny is well looked after.”“Unless Racing were very interested in the idea [of letting him go]… I’m not sure how they would be. They’ve been very happy with Jonny and he’s done a good job for them.”Jonny Sexton dismisses reports of a summer return to LeinsterConnacht Academy manager backs Henshaw and Marmion for international stardomlast_img read more

Swarmanoid a group of robots team up to rescue a book

first_imgFinding your desired library book is almost always a tricky venture. If the book is out of place, good luck. If the library runs on the Dewey Decimal System, you might as well call it quits. If all else fails, you could always have robots get it for you.Researchers at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium have assembled a team of robots that can coordinate to accomplish a task. Dubbed Swarmanoid, the team recently succeeded in retrieving a book from a high shelf. They communicate via infrared and flashing LED lights.Swarmanoid comprises several types of robots. Aerial eye-bots, ground foot-bots, and climbing hand-bots communicate with each other to accomplish the mission. Before given their task, the robots know nothing of the environment they are in.First, the eye-bots scope out the environment for the target. Each room that makes up that environment is outfitted with a magnetic ceiling so that the eye-bots can anchor to it. Once the target is located, the eye-bots send an activation signal to the foot-bots which form a line between the hand-bot and the target. The foot-bots form a communication chain so that the hand-bot can make its way to the book.Two foot-bots then attach to the hand-bot to escort it to the target. Once at the book shelf, the foot-bots detach, and the hand-bot shoots a magnetic-tipped string up to the ceiling. With the line for stability, the hand-bot begins its ascent. After the hand-bot grabs the book, it lowers itself back down to safety.The whole operation is significant in that it demonstrates how simple robots working together can solve quite complex problems. Check out how the operation panned out in the video below.via NewScientistlast_img read more

La tuberculose une maladie apparue il y a 70 000 ans qui

first_imgLa tuberculose, une maladie apparue il y a 70 000 ans qui a suivi l’hommeSelon une nouvelle étude, le bacille de la tuberculose a fait son apparition sur Terre en Afrique, il y a 70.000 ans. Il aurait ensuite suivi les déplacements des hommes au cours de ses migrations successives.Si l’on savait déjà que le bacille de la tuberculose sévissait sur Terre depuis des milliers d’années, c’est un nouvel éclairage qu’apporte une étude publiée dimanche dans la revue Nature Genetics. Menée par une équipe internationale de chercheurs, celle-ci révèle que la bactérie “a émergé il y a environ 70.000 ans et accompagné les migrations de l’homme moderne hors d’Afrique”. Selon les chercheurs à l’origine de cette découverte, le bacille de Koch s’est répandu en raison de “l’augmentation de densité de la population humaine au cours de la période néolithique”. Aussi, l’Espagnol Iñaki Comas (du Centre for Public Health Research de Valence) et le Suisse Sébastien Gagneux (de l’Institut tropical et de santé publique suisse) mettent en évidence une “similitude frappante entre l’évolution de l’homme et celle du bacille de la tuberculose”.Pour arriver à de telles conclusions, les chercheurs ont analysé l’ensemble du génome du Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Ils en ont déduit une “étroite relation” entre l’homme et le bacille de Koch sur des “‘dizaines de milliers d’années”. Selon les auteurs, “les migrations de l’homme moderne et ses changements de mode de vie ont créé des conditions favorables pour l’évolution d’une maladie de plus en plus meurtrière”, puisqu’elle est aujourd’hui responsable de 1,5 million de morts chaque année.Des mécanismes de résistance complexes À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Dans le même temps, Nature Genetics publie une autre étude portant sur le génome du bacille. Dans celle-ci, les scientifiques se sont intéressés aux mécanismes de résistance de la mycobactérie. Ce sont ces mécanismes qui la rendent difficile à traiter par antibiothérapie de nos jours. Les chercheurs de la Harvard Medical School (USA) ont ainsi découvert des gènes responsables de la régulation des parois cellulaires de la bactérie, la zone par laquelle les antibiotiques s’attaquent au bacille. Ainsi, le phénomène de résistance du bacille se révèle beaucoup plus complexe et élaboré que ne le croyaient les scientifiques, explique l’AFP.Un espoir pour mieux traiter la maladie Grâce à cette avancée, les chercheurs espèrent pouvoir contourner les mécanismes de résistance mis en place par le bacille, lesquels sont malheureusement de plus en plus efficaces. De fait, la tuberculose reste aujourd’hui la maladie infectieuse la plus meurtrière au monde après le sida et, selon l’OMS, 8,7 millions de personnes ont contracté la maladie en 2011 (et près de 20 % d’entre elles en sont mortes).Le 3 septembre 2013 à 09:46 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

John McAfee tweets jailhouse photoshoot

first_img Tags Robert King sharing my cell pic.twitter.com/vUpFlTXBuU— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) July 25, 2019 Computers Online Bitcoin McAfeecenter_img McAfee’s prison photoshoot. John McAfee John McAfee has tweeted photos of his time in jail this week after being released Wednesday after apparently going missing. “My second arrest in one week – a record I think,” he tweeted alongside one photo of himself sitting under a bed in his cell. Operating his Twitter account Tuesday, his campaign manager Rob Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Loggia-Ramirez had said McAfee had been detained by authorities. The antivirus software pioneer has been on the run since 2012 after his alleged involvement in a murder in Belize, which he denies. Data hidden across the world by the 2020 presidential candidate and maker of an “unhackable” cryptocurrency wallet would have been revealed if he remained detained, tweets earlier this week said. He added that the first photo was his wife’s favorite picture of his jailhouse photoshoot. “Janice was incarcerated in the cellblock next door at the same time. She just forgot how to properly smuggle phones,” he said. McAfee was arrested by the Dominican Republic Armed Forces while docking his yacht in Puerto Plata, AP reported Wednesday afternoon. Multiple high-caliber weapons as well as ammunition were seized during the arrest, AP said. On July 19, McAfee had tweeted a picture of himself and his wife holding guns on his yacht. Loggia-Ramirez later told CNET in a private Twitter message that to his knowledge, McAfee was detained but not arrested. McAfee then tweeted a series of pictures of himself leaving detention after “four days of confinement.” “I was well treated. My superiors were friendly and helpful. In spite of the helpful circumstances, we’ve decided to move on. More later,” he tweeted Wednesday afternoon. McAfee last week tweeted his only “crime is not filing tax returns,” and claimed the rest of the charges against him is “propaganda by the US government to silence me.” On July 19 he’d said he would be going “dark for the next few days,” claiming the CIA “attempted to collect us.” Originally published 5:40 p.m. PT, July 25. Correction, 7:22 p.m.: This story originally included details tweeted by a spoof account and faked press release. Those details have been removed.

Local Leaders To Austin Dont Defund Proposed Grand Parkway Segments

first_img Listen After years in the planning stages, the Texas Transportation Commission is now thinking about removing part of the Grand Parkway from its 10-year funding plan, known as the Unified Transportation Program.The Grand Parkway was conceived as a 180-mile loop around greater Houston. Right now you can drive the western and northern portions of the Grand Parkway from I-69 Southwest Freeway to I-69 Eastex Freeway. A section near Baytown is also open, and an eastern segment is currently under construction in Liberty and Chambers Counties.The proposed section they’re considering defunding is the part that would run from I-69 near Sugar Land to I-45 at League City. On planning documents, that section of the roadway is referred to as Segments B and C.Gov. Greg Abbott has indicated he doesn’t want to build any more toll roads in the state. But local leaders plan to speak at a public hearing about their need for the Grand Parkway, especially as the region’s population grows.One of those signed up to speak is John Baumgartner, City Manager for League City.“The Grand Parkway has been part of the planning process as a toll facility for a number of years,” said Baumgartner. “We were taken completely by surprise that they would even consider removing the Grand Parkway from the UTP primarily because it has a toll element to it.”With League City’s population now standing at about 110,000, Baumgartner said that number could rise to about 200,000 people over the next few decades. To prepare for those new residents, Baumgartner said they expect to see hundreds of new homes in the southwest part of the city. Three large developments are currently being planned and new roads are being built along the Grand Parkway corridor.“We’re seeing not development waiting on the Grand Parkway, but development in advance of the Grand Parkway, straddling both side of it,” Baumgartner told News 88.7.Baumgartner also noted that the Grand Parkway is part of League City’s updated Master Mobility Plan. In addition, about $5 million to support the Grand Parkway project was included in the bond referendum League City voters recently approved for drainage and mobility improvements.“What we see in the greater Houston region is there is such a need to improve the major limited-access roadways and to keep people moving, keep goods and freight moving,” said Baumgartner. He also noted the need for more roadway capacity to handle hurricane evacuations.As for the governor’s concern over new toll roads, Baumgartner said he doesn’t see any other option for building the southern Grand Parkway segments. He feels that without the tolls, the region would have to wait years for new funding to come forward.Friendswood State Senator Larry Taylor posted on social media that he’s been working with the commission and feels confident the roadway will be funded. The Houston-Galveston Area Council’s Transportation Policy Council has also passed a resolution asking that the project be kept in the Unified Transportation Program.Meanwhile TxDOT will only say that the project remains in the public comment phase.The public hearing on the Unified Transportation Program is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Tuesday at TxDOT’s headquarters in Austin.MORE: Full Conversation from Houston Matters Share Gail Delaughter/Houston Public Media The section of the Grand Parkway between U.S. 290 and I-45 opened in March of 2016.

Using high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HRpQCT), researchers were able to look inside the bone at the specific bone structure and quality. Interim data from a prospective Investigator Initiated Trial (IIT) presented this week at the 37th European Symposium on Calcified Tissues, in Glasgow, demonstrates that Evista improves bone quality as measured by HRpQCT. Dr. Helmut Radspieler, Investigator of the IIT at the Osteoporosis Diagnostic- und Therapy centre Munich, evaluated prospectively micro-architectural changes of the bone of patients being treated with Evista for 15.1 months. The trial showed that all parameters analyzed improved over the treatment period. “With the help of 3-D images, we can now actually see into the micro-structure of bones. This makes it possible to determine the efficacy of different treatments, as shown here with raloxifene,” Radspieler said. “We now understand better and are also able to visualize that bone structure and not bone density alone is crucial to retain bone quality.” FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
