Mourinho only felt Man Utd at their best when…by Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho felt he only saw his players at their best mentally when they went a goal down.The Manchester Evening News says Mourinho felt he learnt more about his players when they went a goal behind, and that they would only start performing to their full potential once this happened.After beating Swansea, the Portuguese even explained how going behind worked well for United, despite it piling pressure on him.He said: “The only thing I want to see, but I don’t want to see if it happens, is the team losing and see the way we emotionally react to it because it’s also another stage to be losing and try to change a result.”Because, at the moment, everything is going in our favour but it’s not always motorway. You always find difficult roads and road works and you have to be ready.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
VANCOUVER — The wandering river otter with a taste for decorative and valuable koi carp has managed to elude a trap set Tuesday in hopes of removing it from a classical Chinese garden in Vancouver.Officials with the Vancouver Park Board baited the humane trap with chicken and smeared a mat with fish oil to entice the otter in an effort to relocate the adventurous mammal to a more appropriate home in Stanley Park, about three kilometres away.But a park board spokeswoman says the trap was empty Wednesday.She says there’s still no solution to the mystery of how the otter found the tranquil ponds within the walled Sun Yat-Sen Classical Garden at the edge of the city’s Chinatown.The otter has had no trouble chasing down some of the large, and very old koi that live in the garden’s ponds, and is blamed for eating about five or six of them.While they try to catch the otter, park board and Vancouver Aquarium staff are also making plans to remove the roughly 11 large koi still remaining in the ponds.The Canadian Press
Sophomore right-handed pitcher Travis Lakins (1) delivers a pitch against Illinois on May 2, 2015. OSU lost, 6-5.Credit: Elliot Gilfix / For The LanternThe Ohio State baseball team may have narrowly missed out on postseason play this season, but it finally had some reason to celebrate during the second day of the 2015 MLB draft.Right-handed pitcher Travis Lakins became the highest OSU player drafted since fellow righty Alex Wimmers went 21st overall in 2010. The Boston Red Sox selected Lakins in the sixth round — 171st overall — on Tuesday afternoon.Lakins, a hard-throwing product of Franklin, Ohio, is coming off a sophomore season in which he went 4-4 with a 3.75 ERA in 15 starts. He struck out a team-high 84 in 96.0 innings pitched.Lakins’ final start of the season was arguably his strongest, as he neutralized Iowa’s lineup to the tune of six hits and one run allowed over eight innings in the opening game of the Big Ten tournament. However, a blown save in the ninth following Lakins’ departure gave the Hawkeyes the 3-2 victory.In the righty’s freshman campaign, he was used primarily out of the bullpen, where he made 23 of his 25 appearances. In 55.0 innings of work, he fanned 55 batters and compiled a 2.45 ERA, the second best on the team.He later made headlines after his freshman season when he threw a perfect game on June 20, 2014 while pitching for the Chillicothe Paints in summer ball. He struck out 14 in the perfect game against the West Virginia Miners, which was the first in the history of the Prospect League.Should Lakins choose to sign with Boston, the slot value for the 171st pick is $287,500, according to Baseball America. He was previously set to play for the Orleans Firebirds of the Cape Cod League this summer alongside outfielder Ronnie Dawson.The 2015 draft marked the fourth consecutive year at least one OSU player was drafted, following John Kuchno in 2012, Jon Pellant, Brett McKinney and Brad Goldberg in 2013 and Greg Greve last season.The MLB draft is scheduled to conclude with the 11th through 40th rounds on Wednesday.

Ellis more affectionately known as “Count Bernadino”, to formally announce his passing shortly after midnight today at Doctor’s Hospital with his dear and loving wife, Juanita, at his bedside. He was 92 years old.As many of you may know, for the past eighteen (18) months or so, “Count” has been bed-ridden and unable to walk, as he battled heart and thyroid issues. A more detailed statement along with funeral arrangements will be given at a later date.On behalf of my own family, the Visage family, the entire music and entertainment industry of our beloved Bahamas and Bahamians everywhere, I wish to extend condolences and deepest sympathies to his wife, children (especially my very close and dear friends, Joey, Nita and Mia) and his extended family. We all offer our prayers that the Lord strengthens all of you at this very difficult time.May his soul rest in peace.

a female aedes mosquito. File PhotoThe children who are older than six years are at a greater risk of dengue infection since they spend more time in crowded places like schools and parks, says a new study of icddr,b.Under the study, two household serosurveys were conducted in 2012 to assess the seroprevalence and seroincidence of dengue fever virus (DENV).During the period, information on demographic, socioeconomic, and other relevant characteristics was collected from the study participants using a structured socioeconomic questionnaire. The findings have been released recently.The study combines serological surveys of blood samples with participant interviews to determine various socio-cultural risk factors that predict DENV infection.Serological surveys measure the presence of circulating antibodies in blood samples to objectively determine whether each participant has been infected with DENV in the past.The study identifies various household and community level risk factors that increase the risk of dengue infection. At the household level, the presence of ornamental potted plants, potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes was found to increase the risk for DENV infection.According to research investigator at icddr,b and co-author of the study Kishor Kumar Paul, home-based interventions such as removing indoor potted plants and increased bed net use, as well as vector control measures in public parks, will reduce the exposure to dengue infections among the city dwellers.Dengue is spread by mosquitoes Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, the two species which can also transmit other mosquito-borne viruses.Multiple dengue outbreaks have occurred in Bangladesh since the first major outbreak in 2000. The vast majority (91 pc) of reported dengue cases between 2000 and 2009 occurred in Dhaka.Official data show that so far over 660 dengue cases with two fatalities have been reported this year in the capital. Of them, 121 dengue cases were reported in May, followed by 202 in June and 84 up to 16 July 2017.The new study found a very high degree of seroprevalence for DENV across Dhaka city, with the highest seroprevalence in the older, more densely populated areas. It is an indicator of significant unreported dengue virus-associated illness.There are also many new infections that occur between the pre- and post-monsoon period, suggesting that DENV was circulating through the city quite intensely during the study.Findings of this study indicate that home-based interventions like removing indoor potted plants and increased bed net use, in addition to vector control measures in public parks, would reduce exposure to DENV and further decrease risk of viral associated disease.Principal investigator of the study W Abdullah Brooks said this study demonstrates that formulation of an active DENV surveillance system is urgently warranted, particularly to estimate the impact of DENV disease burden in Dhaka and other urban areas of the country.

More information: via: Symmetry Magazine and Cosmic Log– A Lawyer’s View of the Risk of Black Hole Catastrophe at the LHC, PhysOrg.com, January 22, 2010. So far, the LHC has reached an energy of about 3.5 trillion electron volts, or half of its full energy. Image credit: CERN. Walter Wagner, a retired nuclear safety officer, along with Spanish journalist Luis Sancho, filed the lawsuit in March 2008 before the LHC was turned on. The LHC, located on the border between France and Switzerland, was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). As a collaboration among thousands of scientists from more than 100 countries, the LHC is the largest and most powerful particle accelerator in the world. After an electrical fault initially shut down the collider when it was first turned on in September 2008, it has been operating successfully since November 2009.The LHC was designed to investigate many exotic areas of science, such as supersymmetry, extra dimensions, and dark matter. Wagner filed the lawsuit due to his concern that the LHC would produce black holes or a strange form of matter that could destroy the Earth. While he attempted to stop the LHC before it began operating, the US court originally dismissed the suit in 2008 on the grounds that the court had no jurisdiction over the LHC operations. But Wagner appealed the case, and now, for the second time, the court has dismissed the lawsuit for similar reasons. The judge noted that the LHC is owned, managed, and controlled by CERN, not the US. “The US government enjoys only observer status on the CERN council, and has no control over CERN or its operations,” the judge wrote in the final decision. “Accordingly, the alleged injury, destruction of the Earth, is in no way attributable to the US government’s failure to draft an environmental impact statement.”Even if the US court could have an impact on LHC operations, the judge also concluded that Wagner did not demonstrate sufficient standing in the court for the case to proceed. “At most, Wagner has alleged that experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (the ‘Collider’) have ‘potential adverse consequences.’ Speculative fear of future harm does not constitute an injury in fact sufficient to confer standing.”Wagner told Cosmic Log, a science blog at MSNBC, that he plans to seek a review of the court’s ruling, since the law allows review requests to be filed up to 45 days after the August 24 ruling.CERN plans to continue operating the LHC through 2011 at half-power, or 3.5 trillion electron volts. Then, after one year of scheduled maintenance, the power will be increased to the maximum 7 trillion electron volts in December 2012. The full (five-paragraph) court ruling is available here. Meanwhile, a monitoring system that provides real-time updates on the LHC’s potential for destruction is available at www.hasthelargehadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com.

And, as ruled in 2008, the judge again concluded that the US government is not the correct party to bring the suit against since the US doesn’t control LHC operations.
