Boxing great Lomachenko eyes a different catch before he is 40

first_imgLondon: Ukraine’s world lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko says he wants to enjoy hunting and fishing and not box on into his 40s like fellow great Manny Pacquiao. The 31-year-old two-time Olympic champion will hope to add the vacant WBC belt to his WBA and WBO lightweight titles when he fights Britain’s Luke Campbell in London on Saturday. Lomachenko, who enjoyed an outstanding amateur career winning Olympic gold in 2008 (featherweight) and 2012 (lightweight) and is believed to have lost just one of his 396 bouts, told the BBC he will retire before he is 40.

Lomachenko is adamant he will not be following suit. “No, I don’t want that, it’s too much,” he said. “I have trained since I am four years old. I was born a boxer. “Always, something has to end. I want to hunt, I want to fish every day. Now I can’t do this as I train every day. “My motivation, my goal, is four titles (at lightweight). After, I don’t know what happens. Now it’s two more belts.” Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterCampbell matched Lomachenko at the London Olympics in 2012 with gold in the bantamweight division and he will bid to do better than compatriot Anthony Crolla, who was knocked out in the fourth round by the Ukrainian in April. If Lomachenko is to hold all four world title belts, he will not just need to beat Campbell on Saturday but also target Ghana’s Richard Commey, who possesses the IBF crown. Lomachenko has been breaking records for the speed with which he has amassed world titles in three weight classes, the others being featherweight and junior lightweight. All this in just 14 professional bouts. His one defeat to Orlando Salido came in only his second fight and his first world title bout (WBO featherweight). “It’s one of my goals and dream to put my name in boxing history,” he said. “That’s why I started a pro career and fought for a world title in my second fight. I’m the fastest three-weight world champion, so I do everything for legacy.”last_img read more

Canadian industries concerned about knockon effects of Bombardier tariffs

first_imgCALGARY – The U.S. Department of Commerce’s decision this week to slap major tariffs on Bombardier has raised concerns about ripple effects across Canada’s trade exposed industries.Jean Simard, president of the Aluminium Association of Canada, said the decision to impose duties of 220 per cent on Bombardier’s CSeries jets creates uncertainty across the manufacturing sector, including those supplying raw materials.“This very strong signal of enforcement by the U.S. administration adds up to a very volatile business environment, which nobody likes.”He said the aggressive move threatens to disrupt the well-integrated manufacturing processes, with industries like aluminum smelting possibly hit by collateral damage from the trade talks.“When you start tweaking the rules, the complexity of the consequences can be phenomenal,” said Simard.“Any decision of this kind certainly sends a tremor through the supply chain throughout North America.”Unifor president Jerry Dias said the Bombardier tariff is the latest U.S. move against many of Canada’s key industries.“They’re going after Bombardier, they’re talking about steel, aluminum, so there’s a whole bunch of balls in the air right now.”“They are going after the heart of so many of our industries, so ultimately we need to find a remedy, and I would suggest that has to be fairly quickly before this thing continues to digress,” said Dias.The concerns for business come as the third round of North American free trade talks wrapped up in Ottawa Wednesday, with little progress on key issues like domestic content requirements in manufacturing.Canadian softwood-lumber producers have already felt the impact of the tactics with the U.S. imposing tariffs on imports earlier this year.A spokesman for the Forest Products Association of Canada said the group had no comment on what the Bombardier tariffs might mean for their efforts to resolve their impasse with the U.S.Bernard Wolf, an economics professor at York University’s Schulich School of Business, said the U.S. tactics are misguided as they can do real damage to a system that’s benefited everyone.“There are supply chains that have been established, particularly in the automotive industry, that you can really mess up.”Wolf said the latest tariffs show the U.S. is looking to take advantage of any perceived subsidies or unfairness in the system.“This certainly is a red flag in terms of the Americans looking for other areas where there are subsidies,” he said.“The whole administration is trying to be more aggressive wherever it can. It’s very much America first.”Ian Lee, an associate professor at Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business, said the moves against open trade go much deeper than U.S. President Donald Trump, and that he’s tapping into greater frustration about perceived negative effects of trade deals.“He’s decided he’s going to go after those parts of the NAFTA agreement that have disadvantaged the United States.”Lee said Canada has long protected airlines, banking, telecoms and especially dairy through supply management while pushing for open access to the U.S. markets, and the U.S. is now pushing back.“We’re approaching a Rubicon, where the Americans are saying here’s our line in the sand, here’s the things we want. And they are going to get it or walk away.”Graham Lloyd, CEO of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, said, however, that he has faith the federal government will continue to stand up for the dairy industry, despite U.S. dairy farmers being desperate to access the Canadian market.“We don’t have any reason to have doubt the government wants to and will continue to protect us.”While it’s not clear what concessions or policy changes might result from the trade disputes, Simard at the aluminium association says the disputes themselves are making it very difficult for industries to make any sort of long-term plans and investments.“We’re just having layers of uncertainty upon layers of uncertainty,” he said. “You have to be able to see down the road. Right now we don’t see the road.”last_img read more

Angel of Burundi awarded refugee prize cosponsored by UN

A woman known as the “Angel of Burundi” for her dedication to saving and educating children in her war-torn country was last night awarded the 2005 Nansen Refugee Award, presented by a United Nations refugee official and a member of the Belgian royal family at a ceremony in Brussels.Marguerite Barankitse, a Burundian Tutsi who sheltered her seven adopted Hutu and Tutsi children throughout the massacres of the civil war and went on to assist 10,000 more by founding three centres for traumatized children, was presented with the prize in the Concert Noble by Princess Mathilde of Belgium and Wendy Chamberlin, the Deputy High Commissioner of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Accepting the award, Ms. Barankitse said her work was inspired by one single goal: peace. “Accept your fellow man, sit down together, make this world a world of brothers and sisters,” she said. Among the many people she helped were Burundian refugees returning to their country after a long exile in Tanzania.The Deputy High Commissioner applauded Ms. Barankitse’s contribution to building a more peaceful world by teaching children of all ethnic origins that co-existence is possible. “Throughout her work with her organisation, Maison Shalom, Marguerite Barankitse sends a message of hope for the future,” said Ms. Chamberlin. “Her actions are clear evidence that individual courage and commitment can make a difference in our world.”High Commissioner António Guterres, who was on mission in Uganda, sent a videotaped message congratulating Ms. Barankitse with the award: “Your story is a shining example to those who may have lost everything that there are still wonderful people in this world who deeply care about others.”Created in 1954, the Nansen Refugee Award is named after Fridtjof Nansen, the Norwegian explorer who was the League of Nations’ High Commissioner for Refugees. As such, he was the world’s first international refugee official. The prize is given annually to individuals or organizations to honour distinguished service in the cause of refugees. The winner is selected each year by a Committee composed of the governments of Norway and Switzerland, UNHCR, the Council of Europe and the International Council of Voluntary Agencies. Last year’s prize went to the Russian non-governmental organization (NGO), Memorial Human Rights Center. read more

Quand les couleurs rendent notre assiette attrayante

first_imgQuand les couleurs rendent notre assiette attrayanteSi le temps n’est pas au beau fixe ces jours-ci, le printemps est bel et bien là et les étals ont commencé à se remplir des légumes et fruits d’été. L’occasion de rajouter de la couleur dans nos assiettes : un facteur important dans l’alimentation comme l’explique aujourd’hui notre chroniqueuse nutritionniste Isabelle Mallet. “Avec l’arrivée du printemps, toute la nature s’ouvre pour nous offrir ce qu’elle a de meilleur en termes de couleurs… mais pas seulement. La nature est ainsi faite que plus elle avance vers l’été et le soleil, plus les fruits qu’elle nous propose, vont être chargés d’antioxydants, protecteurs du vieillissement des cellules soumises aux agressions des UV. Ces fruits de saison sont également souvent très riches en bêta-carotène qui nourrit les cellules de notre peau pour lui permettre de “foncer” et mieux se protéger des agressions du soleil ! Je parle bien entendu des melons, pèches, abricot, nectarine, baies (groseilles, framboises)… Une belle histoire entre l’homme et la nature.Mais aujourd’hui la science nous emmène un peu plus loin. En effet, une équipe de chercheurs anglais et américains a cherché à étudier s’il existait des différences de consommation entre les enfants et les adultes en termes de présentation des aliments dans l’assiette, aussi bien sur le nombre d’items, que sur les combinaisons de couleurs. Deux études ont ainsi été menées successivement sur les préférences alimentaires : une chez des enfants et une chez des adultes. Dans la première étude, les chercheurs ont interrogé un échantillon de 23 enfants dont 15 filles, âgés de 5 à 12 ans, dans un camp de vacances d’été aux Etats-Unis. Dans la deuxième étude, 46 adultes de plus de 26 ans, dont 25 femmes, ont été recrutés. Tous les adultes étaient étudiants ou employés de l’Université de Cornell. Des photos de combinaisons d’aliments présentés sur une assiette ont été présentées aux sujets. Les photos se différenciaient par le nombre d’aliments dans l’assiette, leur position et la combinaison des items ou encore le contenu des assiettes (plus ou moins remplies). La diversité d’aliments et de couleurs privilégiée par les enfants Les résultats montrent que les enfants et les adultes n’ont pas les mêmes préférences pour la présentation des aliments. Jusque-là pas vraiment de surprise, le plus intéressant vient ensuite : les enfants ont considéré qu’une “assiette idéale” était composée de 7 aliments différents, avec 6 couleurs différentes, ce qui montre une forte attractivité pour une diversité de couleur, de forme et d’aliments ! Au contraire, les adultes préféraient une assiette composée de 3 couleurs différentes, avec 3 aliments différents. On peut donc conclure que le choix et la diversité alimentaire, aussi bien en termes de couleurs que de nombre d’items semblent très importants pour les enfants, et bien plus que pour les adultes. Il me vient alors une interrogation, les légumes et les fruits, ne sont-ils pas de couleurs ? Gardons donc nos réticences d’adultes et multiplions les couleurs dans les assiettes de nos enfants.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Bon évidemment le mode vapeur est à proscrire, il faut penser aux sauces aux petites herbes, à l’onctuosité de la crème, au craquant du gratin… et la présentation aussi. Des animaux aux paysages, l’assiette peut devenir un vrai terrain artistique, si c’est pour la bonne cause. Travaillons donc ces légumes et ces fruits avec amour en suivant les saisons pour profiter de tout ce qu’ils ont à nous offrir. Et vous, quel est votre secret ?”Isabelle Mallet Le 21 avril 2012 à 17:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Weather Eye Breezy showery unsettled skies as far as the forecaster can

first_imgWith our continued blustery weather this spring, many folks are wondering if it will be a repeat of last year. Green tomato summer in the offing? It certainly looks like it at this point in time. More unsettled conditions are in the extended forecast, with only brief interludes of sunshine.More rain should come later on Wednesday and into Thursday, with a good half-inch or more on the charts for Vancouver. And also more moderate snows in the Cascades. Never ends, eh? Looking at computer models late Monday, it appeared we could squeeze out a nice weekend later this week but of course those ducky sunny icons on the extended forecast keep on moving. We’ll see. If it does end up being nice it would be cooler than what we had last Saturday — in the 60s, not the 70s.And speaking of Saturday, it was just plain fantastic. I managed a few moments to lie out in the sunshine between inside chores. Decided to postpone my trip to the garden center for some potted plants to set outside; plenty of time for that. I will give you the same old warning about clearing skies overnight this Friday through Sunday if high pressure abounds. Yep, without the cloud blanket, there’s a good chance again of scattered frost, especially in the colder locations, and you know where you live.Monday’s weather system brought some strong gusty winds along the Oregon coast, with reports as high as 80 mph. Inland winds were strongest in the southern Willamette Valley, with reports of over 50 mph. Locally? Just typical March-like breezes with gusts to 25-35 mph.last_img read more

Sesame Street invades Game of Thrones Westworld for good cause

He calls Dolores “robot lady” and delivers a lecture on respect illustrated through the sharing of a cookie.  Be sure to stick around for the Sesame Street theme rendered by a player piano manned by the Two-Headed Monster. The footage starts off like a normal Game of Thrones scenario as Cersei and Tyrion argue. Elmo, dressed in armor, shows up to talk the pair through their issues. The video is meant to highlight the importance of respecting one another, even in the case of sworn enemies. It wraps ups with a joke about the meaning of “toast.” While the Sesame Street crossover isn’t canon, those of us pining for a happily-ever-after ending for all the residents of Game of Thrones can pretend it is.

The arrest business by law enforcers has now become an order of a day.”Fakhrul alleged that BNP leaders and workers are passing through miserable time in fear of arrest in ‘fabricated’ cases.The statement was issued protesting and condemning the arrest of BNP national executive committee member Sheikh Mohammad Shamim.The BNP secretary general said Shamim was subjected to the government’s political vengeance.He demanded the government immediately release the BNP executive committee member after withdrawing ‘politically motivated’ cases filed against him.last_img read more

Curiosity finds rocks that might point to a continental crust on Mars

The findings do not confirm magmatic activity on the planet or the existence of tectonic plates, the researchers acknowledge, they simply suggest it might have been a possibility. The rock samples could have come to be the way they are, for example, by the partial melting of basalts as they sank back into the crust. As always, more research will be needed to truly understand the history of the rocks. Diversity of rock textures. Credit: Nature Geoscience (2015) doi:10.1038/ngeo2474 More information: In situ evidence for continental crust on early Mars, Nature Geoscience (2015) DOI: 10.1038/ngeo2474AbstractUnderstanding of the geologic evolution of Mars has been greatly improved by recent orbital, in situ and meteorite data, but insights into the earliest period of Martian magmatism (4.1 to 3.7 billion years ago) remain scarce9. The landing site of NASA’s Curiosity rover, Gale crater, which formed 3.61 billion years ago within older terrain, provides a window into this earliest igneous history. Along its traverse, Curiosity has discovered light-toned rocks that contrast with basaltic samples found in younger regions. Here we present geochemical data and images of 22 specimens analysed by Curiosity that demonstrate that these light-toned materials are feldspar-rich magmatic rocks. The rocks belong to two distinct geochemical types: alkaline compositions containing up to 67 wt% SiO2 and 14 wt% total alkalis (Na2O + K2O) with fine-grained to porphyritic textures on the one hand, and coarser-grained textures consistent with quartz diorite and granodiorite on the other hand. Our analysis reveals unexpected magmatic diversity and the widespread presence of silica- and feldspar-rich materials in the vicinity of the landing site at Gale crater. Combined with the identification of feldspar-rich rocks elsewhere and the low average density of the crust in the Martian southern hemisphere, we conclude that silica-rich magmatic rocks may constitute a significant fraction of ancient Martian crust and may be analogous to the earliest continental crust on Earth.Press releasecenter_img (—A team of researchers from the U.S., France and the U.K. is reporting that data sent back by the Mars rover Curiosity suggests that the Red Planet may have once had a continental crust similar to that found back here on planet Earth. In their paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, the team describes their analysis of data describing 20 rocks that had been probed by the rover, and why their findings suggest a different history for the planet than has been thought. With all the excitement and news coming from the New Horizons probe as it conducts a flyby of Pluto, it is easy to forget that the Mars rover Curiosity is still active and still sending back valuable information. In this latest bit of news, researchers studying data sent back from the probe believe they have found evidence that suggests that rather than a lack of magmatic planetary activity, which should have been evident in rock samples showing mostly basalt, rock samples are full of silica and have a rich composition.The light-colored rock samples are from an area inside the Gale Crater (in the southern hemisphere near Mount Sharp) and have been dated back to approximately 3.6 billion years ago. The researchers describe the rocks as looking like mineral composition samples taken from Earth, a huge departure from the dark basalt that was expected. The similarity suggests the planet may once have experienced plate tectonics similar to that on Earth. Up until now, the assumption has been that Mars did not have magmatic activity, which it is believed would have been necessary for the development of plates. That would have left the surface covered with basalt, similar to the situation at the bottom of our own world’s oceans. The researchers note that for some of the rocks the ingredients are actually very similar to some of the oldest continental materials on Earth. © 2015 Citation: Curiosity finds rocks that might point to a continental crust on Mars (2015, July 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Journal information: Nature Geosciencelast_img read more

They used 3D imaging during radiation planning to acquire the data. Lawrence B. Marks, M.D., chair of the department of radiation oncology and co-editor of the QUANTEC study says the new standards provide a logical framework to assess the risks of complex 3D doses that are now routinely considered. The research team, comprised of physicians, physicists and statisticians/modelers, said its ultimate goal was to make radiation oncology more standardized and efficient. They first examined literature for each organ and then developed general dose, volume, and outcome data. Based on this information, they made recommendations on the selection of dose and volume prescriptions.

Savannah Georgia – Reported by Elite Traveler th

first_imgSavannah, Georgia – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineGulfstream Aerospace Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), announced today that a second ultra-large-cabin, ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650 has completed its first flight.The second test article — known as T2 — took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport at 12:50 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25, with senior experimental test pilots Gary Freeman and Scott Buethe in the cockpit. The aircraft flew for 2 hours and 33 minutes, reaching an altitude of 37,000 feet (11,278 m) and a speed of Mach 0.80 before landing back in Savannah. In a company first, both G650 flight-test aircraft — T2 and T1 — were airborne simultaneously and were tracked by dual telemetry facilities in real time.“T2 performed extremely well during the initial tests of its integrated flight control system and handling,” said Pres Henne, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. “We plan to make half a dozen flights to assess basic system functionality before proceeding to more intensive testing.” “The conditions were very gusty and blustery, yet T2, like T1, handled great,” said Freeman. “To control the aircraft precisely requires small, light control input from the pilot. It’s an easy jet to fly.”The G650 flight-test and certification plan involves five aircraft and an estimated 1,800 hours of testing. Each aircraft is used for a specific series of tests, with T1 focused on performance and flight controls, T2 on systems and T3 on avionics. The two production aircraft in the test program — P1 and P2 — will be used to evaluate the interior systems and reduced vertical separation minimums (RVSMs), respectively. T1, which spent approximately six hours in the air on Thursday, has completed 18 flights over more than 43 hours. The aircraft has reached a maximum speed of Mach 0.90 and a top altitude of 47,000 feet (14,326 m). Test pilots are progressively opening the flight envelope in conjunction with load testing of a ground-test airframe designated S6.Gulfstream expects to receive concurrent G650 certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in 2011. Gulfstream announced the G650 program on March 13, 2008. On Sept. 29, 2009, the aircraft rolled out under its own power in front of a crowd of more than 7,000 people. It completed its first flight on Nov. 25, 2009, and remains on schedule for entry-into-service in 2012. The G650 offers the longest range at the fastest speed in its class.Powered by best-in-class Rolls-Royce BR725 engines, the business jet is capable of traveling 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km) at Mach 0.85 and has a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925.www.gulfstream.comlast_img read more
