Trout Power: Angels Beat YanksTrout Power: Angels Beat Yanks

first_imgANAHEIM, Calif. — Mike Trout showed off practically every aspect of his MVP talent against the New York Yankees, from his early homer to his late stolen base with a couple of jaw-dropping catches in between.His teammates saw it as just another night for the Los Angeles Angels star — although no game against this opponent is ordinary for the Derek Jeter fan from New Jersey.“Oh, it’s always fun to play the Yankees,” Trout said.Trout and C.J. Cron homered, Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun added run-scoring doubles, and the Angels beat the Yankees 4-1 June 29 for their fifth victory in seven games.Trout hit his 20th homer of the season in the third inning against CC Sabathia (3-8), crushing a drive to the base of the fake rock pile beyond center field.The shot made him one of six AL players with four 20-homer seasons before their age-24 seasons — a list that includes Rodriguez, Mickey Mantle and Ted Williams.“It’s humbling, but we’ve got a series to win tomorrow,” Trout said.The reigning AL MVP also saved a couple of runs with two sprinting catches in center field on balls hit over his head by Chris Young, leaving the Yankees outfielder waving his arms in disgust.Trout has been moving forward to play in shallow center over the last month, and the catches demonstrated his growing confidence in his formidable defensive ability.“Mike showed you his talent in every phase tonight,” Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said.Trout even swiped second in the ninth inning, getting his first stolen base since May 22.“Real shocker, right?” said a sarcastic C.J. Wilson, the pitching beneficiary of those grabs. “Trout hits a homer, saves a couple of runs with defense. Whatever. Obviously that’s one of the benefits of being a pitcher on this team. You’ve got a guy like that chasing down balls for you.”Wilson (6-6) persevered through six eventful innings of five-hit ball for his third victory in four starts as the Angels (40-37) moved three games above .500 for the first time since June 2.Rodriguez drove in a run and Brett Gardner had three hits for the Yankees, who have lost six of nine.Sabathia pitched six-hit ball into the eighth inning, but got meager run support in his first loss since May 28. The veteran left-hander has given up 19 homers this season.“It’s tough, but it’s part of being an athlete,” Sabathia said of his rough start. “Figuring things out, battling and trying to get better. It’s not the ERA, but just the fact that we’re not winning the games that I start. I just want to keep us in the game and try to get some wins.”In his first game back from a stint at Triple-A Salt Lake, Cron connected in the seventh for just his second homer of a disappointing season. He also got the silent treatment from his excited teammates back in the dugout.Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 22nd save.(GREG BEACHAM, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Flights Halted Diverted At Delhi Airport After Severe Dust StormFlights Halted Diverted At Delhi Airport After Severe Dust Storm

first_imgNEW DELHI: A severe dust storm has hit the national capital Delhi this evening after days of an abnormal sizzling heat wave. Temperature in the national capital had touched 48 degrees on Monday, the highest-ever recorded in June. Operations have currently been stopped at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport after the dust storm struck the city, reported news agency ANI. The weather department had however said yesterday that temperatures were expected to dip. Private weather agency Skymet said heavy rain was expected across the National Capital Region.

UN reports second day of relative calm in strifetorn eastern DR CongoUN reports second day of relative calm in strifetorn eastern DR Congo

No casualties were reported in the apparently isolated incidents in North Kivu province, where a recent upsurge in fighting between Government forces (FARDC) and a rebel militia (CNDP) led by renegade general Laurent Nkunda has driven at least 250,000 people from their homes. The UN Mission in the DRC (MONUC) confirmed the recent arrival in the North Kivu capital, Goma, of some 3,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs), with further movements of civilians across the Ugandan border.UN aid agencies said they had restored full service for IDPs after week-long insecurity forced them to cut off some key elements. Distribution has resumed for health kits, immunization packages, fresh water and sanitation equipment, food and shelter. The UN World Health Organization (WHO) said it is attempting to prevent and control an outbreak of cholera as the number of new cases has tripled to 150 a week.On the political side, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy on peace in the Great Lakes Region, former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo, will be travelling for a first round of consultations on the DRC, beginning tomorrow in Luanda, where he will meet with Angola’s President José Eduardo dos Santos. Later tomorrow he will fly to Kinshasa for an expected meeting with DRC President Joseph Kabila, followed by weekend discussions in Goma.Meanwhile Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Deputy Special Representative for the DRC Leila Zerrougui has visited Kiwanja, 70 kilometres north of Goma and the scene of heavy fighting between Mayi-Mayi forces and the CNDP earlier this month, to assess MONUC’s ability to protect civilians.She explained that MONUC was there to protect the population and not to fight Congolese military elements. “That’s not its mission, that’s not its mandate,” she said. “Our military have clear orders; they know they have to protect the people, even with limited means. They will do all they can to bring the necessary assistance to the people.”She denounced the manipulation of the people, often against UN peacekeepers. “If people don’t show a friendly face to MONUC soldiers, they risk creating misunderstandings. MONUC must be allowed to protect the population so it can have good relations with them,” she told civil society organizations. 13 November 2008The strife-torn eastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has remained relatively calm over the past two days apart from two skirmishes between Government troops and the PARECO/Mayi Mayi militia, the United Nations reported today. read more

WHS New fund launched at UN humanitarian summit to address education inWHS New fund launched at UN humanitarian summit to address education in

“Action now has to happen urgently because of the sheer scale of numbers of children impacted,” said UN Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown, who presented the ‘Education Cannot Wait’ fund at the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS), a two-day conference that opened today in Istanbul, Turkey. Specifically designed for education in emergencies, the fund aims to reach more than 13.6 million children and youth living in crisis situations, such as conflict, natural disasters and disease outbreaks, with quality education over the next five years. “These young people are missing out on schooling and this is becoming a full-blown global crisis that will haunt the world for generations,” Mr. Brown stressed. On average, the UN estimates that less than two percent of humanitarian aid currently goes towards funding education. Moreover, education systems equipped to cope with protracted crises cannot be built on the foundations of short-term – and unpredictable – appeals. ‘Education Cannot Wait,’ which has a funding target of $3.85 billion over five years, aims to bridge the gap between humanitarian interventions during crises and long-term development afterwards, through predictable funding. As thousands of participants gathered at the Summit to discuss how to strengthen the humanitarian system to alleviate and prevent the suffering of millions worldwide, UNICEF warned that one in four of the world’s school-aged children – nearly half a billion – live in countries affected by crises. Around 75 million of these children and youth are either already missing out on their education, receiving poor quality schooling or at risk of dropping out of school altogether. A special session at the Summit underlined how education systems are being destroyed by violent armed conflict, natural disasters and health emergencies, robbing children of the skills they need to build safe, strong communities and economies when they reach adulthood. Sarah Brown, the Executive Chair of the Global Business Coalition for Education and President of the children’s charity TheirWorld, is giving a voice to refugee children by displaying some of their artwork at the Summit. Youth worldwide, many of whom fled the Syrian crisis, illustrated what a safe school means to them.Sarah Brown talks about “TheirWorld” and Education Cannot Wait fund Credit: UN News Centre The UN News Centre caught up with Ms. Brown at the Summit’s exhibition fair. Her full radio interview can be accessed here. “Children don’t need education even in emergencies; they need education especially in emergencies,” stressed UNICEF’s Executive Director, Anthony Lake. “Without an education, how will they gain the knowledge and skills to chart their own futures – and to someday lend their hands to building more peaceful, stable futures for their societies? And how can we hope to reach our global development goals for education if we don’t focus on children trapped in humanitarian emergencies – who represent almost half of all children out of school today?” Mr. Lake asked. Answers to these questions will continue to be raised on the second and last day of the World Humanitarian Summit, as government representative and leaders from the private and public sectors work together to commit to the five core responsibilities of the UN Secretary-General’s Agenda for Humanity: Prevent and end conflict Respect rules of war Leave no one behind Working differently to end need Invest in humanity read more

La météorite de Tcheliabinsk a frôlé le Soleil ou heurté un autreLa météorite de Tcheliabinsk a frôlé le Soleil ou heurté un autre

first_imgLa météorite de Tcheliabinsk a frôlé le Soleil ou heurté un autre corps avant d’arriver sur TerreSelon une nouvelle étude russe, la météorite tombée en février dernier à Tcheliabinsk aurait heurté un autre corps ou frôlé le Soleil avant de s’écraser sur Terre. Des fragments indiquent en effet que l’objet a connu un processus de fusion intense avant son entrée dans l’atmosphère.Alors que la majorité des météorites se contente de s’écraser sur Terre sans faire davantage de dégâts, c’est un évènement majeur qui s’est produit à Tcheliabinsk en Russie en février dernier. Un objet rocheux s’est désintégré dans le ciel causant une explosion si puissante que l’onde de choc a créé d’importants dégâts et fait plus de 1.000 blessés dans cette ville de l’Oural. D’après les dernières estimations, l’astéroïde mesurait environ 17 mètres pour une masse comprise entre 5.000 et 10.000 tonnes. Grâce aux recherches réalisées dans la région, plusieurs fragments ont pu être retrouvés et ceux-ci livrent aujourd’hui de précieuses informations concernant l’objet spatial. Selon une étude parue mardi, l’astéroïde aurait en effet connu un processus de fusion intense avant même d’entrer dans l’atmosphère terrestre. Autrement dit, soit l’objet serait entré en collision avec un autre corps, soit il aurait frôlé le Soleil d’un peu trop près.Des fragments de structure différentePour en arriver à cette conclusion, les scientifiques de l’Institute of Geology and Mineralogy (IGM) de Novosibirsk en Russie ont analysé des fragments de la météorite en utilisant différentes techniques. Ceci a permis de constater que tous les morceaux présentaient la même composition minérale mais pas la même structure et la même texture. Face à cela, les chercheurs ont divisé les fragments en trois types, en se basant sur leur couleur et leur structure : clair, foncé, et intermédiaire. Les fragments les plus clairs sont les plus communs, mais les plus foncés ont été trouvés en nombre le long de la trajectoire de la météorite, avec une concentration maximale près de là où elle s’est écrasée. Or, la structure, la texture et la composition minérale de ces fragments foncés montrent qu’ils ont été formés par un processus de fusion très intense, qui s’est produit avant que l’astéroïde connaisse les températures extrêmement élevées dues à l’entrée dans l’atmosphère terrestre. “Sur les nombreux fragments que nous avons analysé, seuls trois échantillons sombres montrent des indices forts de métamorphisme et de fusion précoce”, a expliqué le Dr Victor Sharygin de l’IGM lors de la Goldschmidt conference tenue à Florence. “Cependant, de nombreux fragments de la météorite ont été ramassés par le public, donc il est impossible de dire quelle portion de la météorite a été affectée” par ce processus. “La météorite qui s’est écrasée près de Tcheliabinsk est un type connu sous le nom de chondrite LL5 et c’est assez commun pour ces objets d’avoir subi un processus de fusion avant de tomber sur Terre”, a indiqué le Dr Sharygin. “Ceci veut presque certainement dire qu’il y a eu une collision entre la météorite de Tcheliabinsk et un autre corps du système solaire ou une quasi-collision avec le Soleil”, a t-il ajouté cité dans un communiqué. Des éléments sous une forme inhabituelle Le matériau trouvé dans les fragments sombres diffère également des autres échantillons puisqu’il présente de petites “bulles” sphériques qui sont incrustées de cristaux d’oxydes, de silicates et de métaux, et remplies de métaux et de sulfure. De façon surprenante, l’équipe d’IGM y a également trouvé de petites quantités d’éléments appartenant au groupe du platine dans la croûte de fusion de la météorite. À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreCette présence est assez inhabituelle dans la mesure où cette croûte se forme normalement trop rapidement pour que ces éléments puissent s’y accumuler facilement. Aussi, d’habitude, ils sont plutôt dispersés dans les minéraux de la météorite. Mais là, “nous les avons trouvés sous la forme d’un minéral de 100-200 nanomètres à l’intérieur d’une goutte dans la croûte de fusion de la météorite”, a détaillé le Dr Sharygin. “Nous pensons que cette formation pourrait être liée à des changements de composition durant les processus de refusion et d’oxydation quand la météorite est entrée en contact avec l’oxygène atmosphérique”, a t-il précisé. Mais pour confirmer ces hypothèses, il faudra mener davantage d’analyses sur les fragments. “Nous espérons en savoir plus une fois que le corps principal de la météorite sera sorti du lac de Tchebarkoul” où l’objet a fini sa course, a ainsi conclu le chercheur.Le 27 août 2013 à 16:13 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Bar Employees Now Charged In Connection With Fatal Drunk Driving Crash ThatBar Employees Now Charged In Connection With Fatal Drunk Driving Crash That

first_imgGail Delaughter | Houston Public MediaHarris County DA Kim Ogg announces the new charges at a press conference on April 5th, 2018. The Harris County District Attorney’s office said on Thursday a total of four people are now facing charges in connection with the crash that happened on February 28 on the I-45 Feeder Road at El Dorado Boulevard. 20-year-old Veronica Rivas was indicted this week on two counts of vehicular manslaughter.Also facing charges under a new Harris County initiative is 24-year-old Devin Jackson, the son of the owner of the Crescent City Connection Sports and Oyster Bar, the place where Rivas and her 17-year-old friend were drinking prior to the crash. He’s accused of providing alcohol to a minor.Facing the same charge is 23-year-old John C. Medina. He also has an additional charge of aggravated perjury by lying to a grand jury. A bartender is facing charges as well. 40-year-old Amy L. Allen is charged with acting with criminal negligence by allowing the underaged women to drink.36-year-old Shayla Joseph and her three-month-old son Braylan Joseph were killed in that crash.District Attorney Kim Ogg said the charges come as part of a new initiative to stem the county’s high drunk driving rates. According to TxDOT’s figures, 159 people were killed in drunk driving crashes in Harris County in 2016.“We are ground zero for alcohol related car crashes and deaths in the United States,” said Ogg. “We really couldn’t do worse as our current record.”To try to stem those high numbers, Ogg explained they’re now investigating where a drunk driver obtained alcohol before causing a fatal wreck.“We track the source of the alcohol to a specific person and place and that’s what this investigation represents, that’s exactly what we’ve done,” said Ogg.Ogg added that the bars themselves could also face administrative penalties from the County Attorney and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission if they’re found to have served someone prior to a fatal crash.

Its a Pampered Dogs LifeIts a Pampered Dogs Life

first_imgIt’s a dog’s world in D.C.! There are doggie daycare centers, overnight hotels, parks, psychics, walkers, specialty clothing shops and natural and organic foods. There’s even a special day when dogs swim at pools for an annual splash.Debbie Gomes, 39, owner of Little Rascals, a doggy daycare in Ward 4, said when she opened seven years ago, people told her the concept would not work. But it did work. Gomes said many of her clients work long hours and need to be assured that their dogs are in good hands. “I didn’t like the type of treatment my own dog was getting so I opened a business that would provide the services that I wanted for my dog,” said Gomes.Little Rascals is prominently located on the corner of Missouri and Georgia avenues in a building that was a bank and a school. One of two locations, it can house as many as 60 dogs.“We have 40 dogs today but you don’t hear one of them barking. If your dog is barking then it is not being taken care of properly,” Gomes said as she escorted two Great Danes to a transport vehicle. “Our dogs feel very comfortable and well attended.”Gomes also said students from neighboring high schools have interned at the site after going through a thorough training. “We’ve been very happy with our high school interns,” said Gomes. Local chain stores Safeway, Giant, Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, Walmart and Trader Joe’s have dedicated isles to dog lovers and other pets. “It’s big business,” said Craig Muckle, manager of public affairs and government operations at Safeway Stores. “Selling pet products has become very sophisticated over the years. To have an entire aisle dedicated to pets means that we are totally committed to the needs of the customers we serve and their pets.”PetSmart, the largest specialty retailers of services and solutions for pets has more than 1,000 stores nationwide and in Canada. In 2013, it collected $1.8 billion in sales and services.Has your dog attended the swimming party? Well, the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation, the Department of Health and the Washington Humane Society hold an annual Doggie Day Swim at the end of the outdoor swimming season at selected pools. Hundreds of well-behaved and licensed dogs accompanied by a responsible person participate in several fun activities. Rhonda Thomas, 59, has been living with dogs all her life. “I believe animals have souls. Just because humans have dominion over them doesn’t mean that we are any better than them. I treat my dogs like I treat my fellow man, with respect,” said Thomas.Christie Lynn Diller, media spokesperson for the Washington Humane Society said it has 10 open abuse and neglect cases on any given day. “We are educating some residents in the District how to properly care for animals, even if it means taking them to court,” said Diller. “Sometimes the neglect or abuse is not intentional,” said Thomas, who is creating a nonprofit organization to provide services to sick dogs and families who may be facing hardships. “I want to help people keep their pets when they don’t have the financial means,” said Thomas. “Sometimes dog neglect may be a result of having to properly take care of your dog or taking care of yourself and other family members.”The District government has seen an increase in revenue for dog licensing. In 2004, approximately $77 thousand for annual fees was collected for dog licensing. Over the years, it steadily increased reaching an all-time high of $120 thousand in 2012. Last year, the fee collection decreased to $75 thousand. Although requests were made to several agencies, government officials gave no explanation for the decline.last_img read more

In similar visual search tasks, a vigilance decrement (decreasing detection rates with time on task) has been observed in a large number of psychological laboratory experiments, including assembly line inspection tasks and airport baggage screening. In the United Kingdom (U.K.), two film readers independently evaluate each mammogram for signs of cancer.Sian Taylor-Phillips, Ph.D., of the University of Warwick, Coventry, U.K., and colleagues investigated whether a vigilance decrement to detect cancer in breast screening practice exists and whether changing the order in which two experts examined a batch of mammograms could increase the cancer detection rate, through readers’ experiencing peak vigilance at differing points within the reading batch.The study was conducted at 46 specialized breast screening centers from the National Health Service (NHS) Breast Screening Program in England for one year. Three hundred sixty readers participated, all fully qualified to report mammograms in the NHS breast screening program. The two readers examined each batch of digital mammograms in the same order in the control group and in the opposite order to one another in the intervention group.Among 1,194,147 women who had screening mammograms (596,642 in the intervention group; 597,505 in the control group), the images were interpreted in 37,688 batches (median batch size, 35), with each reader interpreting a median of 176 batches. After completion of all subsequent diagnostic tests, a total of 10,484 cases (0.88 percent) of breast cancer were detected. There was no significant difference in cancer detection rate with 5,272 cancers (0.88 percent) detected in the intervention group versus 5,212 cancers (0.87 percent) detected in the control group (recall rate, 4.14 percent versus 4.17 percent; rate of reader disagreements, 3.43 percent versus 3.48 percent).“The intervention did not influence cancer detection rate, recall rate or rate of disagreement between readers. There was no pattern of decreasing cancer detection rate with time on task as predicted by previous research on vigilance decrements as a psychological phenomenon,” the authors wrote.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read morelast_img read more
