(Let’s collectively decide whether to stop IPL: Anurag Thakur)Modi, the brainchild behind the IPL and once a rising star in Indian cricket administration, was banned for life in 2013 over charges of financial irreularities in 2010.

Arsenal academy update: Smith-Rowe set for breakthrough

first_imgArsenal are one of the few top-six Premier League clubs to give youth a chance in recent years. Alex Iwobi, Hector Bellerin and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are among the names who have established themselves in the first team over the past few seasons.With former Gunners captain Per Mertesacker leading the academy and Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg managing the Under-23s, there is considerable optimism around Hale End that the young guns can showcase their credentials on a consistent basis this season.Goalkeeper Matt Macey will spend the season on loan at League One side Plymouth Argyle, while highly-rated defensive midfielder Krystian Bielik is already impressing on loan at Charlton, where he scored his first goal at the weekend. Nigeria youngster Kelechi Nwakali recently received his first call up to the national team and is spending the campaign on loan at Porto.Goal takes a look at Arsenal’s current standout performers at Under-23 and Under-18 level… Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram?

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Under-23s Emile Smith Rowe Arsenal 2018-19Arsenal’s highly-rated Under-23 squad includes hot prospect Emile Smith Rowe, the youngster who was heavily involved in the club’s pre-season campaign.Smith Rowe, 19, scored in a friendly match against Atletico Madrid and he also impressed in the recent U-23 win over Tottenham at Emirates Stadium.League Cup opportunities are expected to be handed to the best of the U-23 crop, with Reiss Nelson heading out on loan to Hoffenheim in a bid to fast track his development.Joe Willock is another player who was given several first-team opportunities last season and will look to push on in the new campaign. He scored in the match against Spurs, as did Charlie Gilmour – the Scotland Under-19 star – who converted from the penalty spot having incredibly scored a hat-trick of penalties in an Under-18s win over Liverpool last season.Freddie Ljungberg’s side also boast England Under-17 star Tyreece John-Jules who scored a hat-trick for the Under-18s last weekend but clearly looks good enough to play at U-23 level after a dominating performance against Spurs.Under-18s Folarin Balogun Arsenal 2017-18Arsenal started their Under-18 campaign with three straight wins until they met Chelsea at Cobham last weekend.The Blues have won the FA Youth Cup for the last five seasons and dominated the game, although Folarin Balogun did manage to get on the scoresheet for the Gunners.Balogun, who was born in New York, is eligible to play for England but was recently called up to the United States Under-18 squad. The 17-year-old admitted last season that he came close to joining Tottenham and was spotted by Arsenal playing for his Sunday League side Aldersbrook.The likes of Reiss Nelson, Trae Coyle and Bukayo Saka have all been fast tracked into the Under-18s in recent seasons, with Yunus Musah looking the most likely player to follow in their footsteps this season. At 15 years old, Musah has impressed in midfield although he’s also able to play on the wing and is expected to sign a scholarship deal when he turns 16.Summer signing Sam Greenwood, an England youth international who joined from Sunderland, made his first appearance in a recent win over Brighton and is also expected to become a shining light in the U-18s this season.last_img read more

World Cup 2018: Colombia, Japan in last 16, heartbreak for Senegal

first_imgColombia defeated Senegal in their final group fixture to make it to the round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup 2018 on Thursday at the Samara Arena.Yerry Mina scored from a set-piece in the 74th minute to put his team ahead which proved enough for Colombia to advance while Senegal crashed out of the tournament.Colombia is the only nation which progressed to the next stage in this World Cup after losing its first match. This is the first time since 1982 that neither of the African teams managed go past the group stage in the World Cup.Colombia, who finished as group winners with six points will face a last-16 match against the runners-up in Group G where England and Belgium battle for supremacy later on Thursday.Senegal had been heading through until the 74th minute when Mina rose to meet a corner and sent a bullet header into the net.Yerry Mina heads #COL into Round of 16, as they leap to top of Group H.#SENCOL pic.twitter.com/y58w4H5AaIFIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) June 28, 2018It was a crushing blow to the Senegalese who had been the better side for most of the game and had a penalty award overturned in the first half after a VAR review.They had looked set to take the lead in the 17th minute when Liverpool forward Sadio Mane went down in the area under a challenge from Davinson Sanchez and referee Milorad Mazic pointed to the spot.The VAR system has not been universally acclaimed at this tournament, but television replays appeared to show Sanchez get his heel on the ball, before clattering into Mane, and after reviewing his original decision, Mazic agreed.advertisementChances throughout the game were thin on the ground, with Colombia striker Radamel Falcao heading off target in the 25th minute and again in the second half, while substitute Luis Muriel had an effort blocked.Yet Mina ensured Colombia were not made to pay when he headed home in the 74th minute.On the other hand, Poland beat Japan 1-0 but the latter still made it to the next round from Group H.#POL earn their first points, but #JPN squeeze into knock-out phase. #JPNPOL pic.twitter.com/ZU0pCSxeltFIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) June 28, 2018Both Senegal and Japan finished the group with four points and an identical record in all other respects.

Wales break losing run against Australia with late Dan Biggar penalty

first_imgAustralia sport Topics Share on Pinterest The Observer Share on Messenger Autumn internationals England denied by All Blacks and late decision in Twickenham thriller Share on Twitter Share via Email Which leads us to another plot line of incompetence. It has become fashionable in the modern game to turn down shots at goal in favour of the corner. Australia took this fashion to an absurd extreme, turning down easy shots twice in the second half and making a mess of the subsequent lineouts.So Halfpenny’s success in the 68th minute, to establish a 6-3 lead for Wales, should not be taken for granted. Then came the controversy. Halfpenny cleared for touch, and Kerevi launched himself into an attempt to charge the ball down. Once airborne he could not prevent himself colliding with Halfpenny’s head, but should he have launched himself in the first place? Rugby can feel another furious debate coming on.Either way, pandemonium in the stadium, all the more so when the referee waved play on, all the more again when he awarded the burrowing David Pocock his umpteenth penalty of the day. Only then, from the hardest position of all, did Australia summon a kicker, and Toomua landed it – 6-6.It is difficult to know who should have been more disappointed with the match up to that point. Halfpenny held his head in his hands with that miss at the end of the first half, from pretty much in front on the 22. That just does not happen to him – or at least it never used to.But Australia might have felt they too should have turned round in front. No one dominated possession or territory, but the slickest moves were theirs. Kerevi had a tilt at the line in the first half; Sefa Naivalu sparked another passage. But we are clutching at straws. Neither line was threatened.It became, as ever, a battle of the breakdown, Justin Tipuric and Pocock vying with each other, but both offences for the teams’ respective three points of the first half were for a No 6 straying offside. That is about as uninspiring as points-scoring gets.On it went into the second half – only without the points-scoring for most of it. Tatafu Polota-Nau supplied a plot twist vaguely worthy of the name, when he came in at the side to concede Halfpenny’s redemptive penalty. That set the scene for the relative drama of the last 10 minutes of the match.After Halfpenny and Toomua had exchanged their penalties, Ned Hanigan failed to roll away from a tackle with five minutes to go, and Biggar stepped up to put Wales – and the rest of us – out of their misery.Nevertheless, that is now seven wins in a row for the world’s No 3 team. The timing of next year’s World Cup is starting to look propitious. Reuse this content Share on Facebook match reports Australia rugby union team Rugby union Since you’re here… Support The Guardian Read more Share on LinkedIn When a losing run is as long as this, any old win will do. Wales, after 13 consecutive defeats against Australia, finally managed to beat them. That the score was 9-6, a throwback to rugby union’s bad old days, did not matter a jot to a raucous crowd.Nor should it, but to the neutral this made for desperate viewing. A match that was meandering to a slow death at 3-3 was salvaged by three penalties in the last quarter of an hour, as well as a touch of controversy when Samu Kerevi’s attempted charge-down of Leigh Halfpenny’s clearance was adjudged OK, despite the dreaded contact with the head. Moreover, Matt Toomua kicked Australia level at the end of the same passage, only for Dan Biggar to seal the win with two minutes to go.All the same, 9-6. Those numbers sent everyone scurrying to the record books. We were transported back to the 1980s, the last time Wales won with as few points (1981, 9-8 against Ireland) or won in as low-scoring a game (1988, 11-3 against England). The professional era has not seen anything like this. But for those last 10 minutes, we might have been back in the 19th century, 3-3 entering the final quarter.Thank the Great Redeemer, then, for some plot lines in the dying minutes. Halfpenny had just buried what would have been hideous torture by kicking Wales into a 6-3 lead with 10 minutes to go. In the first half he had missed two, repeat two, sitters by his standards, the second a blindfolded one. So when he was granted another shot from more or less the same spot, he was quick to step up and relieved to kick straight. Share on WhatsApp … we have a small favour to ask.

10 days agoLiverpool chief exec Moore: We’re back after dark days

first_imgLiverpool chief exec Moore: We’re back after dark daysby Paul Vegas10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool chief executive Peter Moore says the European champions are well placed after “some dark days”.Sustained investment in the squad and infrastructure has elevated owners FSG to the highest point of their ownership, with the club posting £125m record profits – re-invested back into the squad even before the financial results were announced in February – winning the Champions League and starting this season brilliantly.”From a prestige perspective it (the Champions League victory) kind of gets us back to where we once were in what we liked to call ‘European royalty’, so the impact is massive,” said Moore.”When we look at the health of the club our revenues have doubled in the last five years and been reinvested back into the squad. We have steadied the ship from some dark days nine years ago.”We take great pride in our business model: a self-sustaining football club.”Simply, you drive revenues as best you can to invest on the pitch and that investment on the pitch pays off and global sponsors and advertisers want to be a part of that.”They continue to give the football club revenue which will again drive investment on the pitch and we win more games.”It is a virtuous cycle and that is the modern business model for high-performing football clubs: invest, invest, invest for success.”Yes, we had that headline, £125million, but all of that money, by the time we had announced that, had been reinvested in players like Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson Becker, Naby Keita and Fabinho. But the club is in fine shape financially.”I think, as you saw from Jurgen’s comments, he has the squad he likes and we have locked this squad up on long-term contracts, which is important.”He has built the chemistry and these players are content, motivated and excited to win – not just for Jurgen and the coaching staff but for the people of Liverpool and broader global fanbase.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Weird Things on Amazon You Can Technically Eat, But Probably Shouldn’t

first_imgThe internet is a strange, strange place. We’re not talking about the dark web or any black market sites, though. We’re talking about your run-of-the-mill, everyday internet. In this case, we’re talking about online giant Amazon and the fact that, among the billions of normal, every day, not-crazy-in-any-way items you can purchase, there is also a metric sh*t ton of weird stuff available.We went down a rabbit hole deeper than anything Alice ever attempted on a quest to find the weirdest things on Amazon that you could (in theory) eat. While there are plenty of odd objects that you can buy and use in a variety of ways (including, but not limited to, things like the book Images You Should Not Masturbate To), we set out to find the ones that you can allegedly put inside your body and derive some sort of nutrition from. You’d just have to get over the fact that you are about to eat, say, testicle jerky.If you are of a weak constitution, you may want to sit this one out. Otherwise, scroll on, intrepid reader, and if you’re up to it, pick some of these items up. If you do, make sure to send us photo proof.Earthworm JerkyLet’s start off strong with earthworm jerky. When you were in high school, did you ever look down during biology class and wonder, “Wow, I wonder what these guys taste like when dehydrated?” Yeah, we didn’t either. But someone did and that is why we have this item. We now know that, when jerky-ed, earthworms look like the fries that you dropped in your car. Six years ago. We only hope the spicy marinade covers up the taste of bile that will inevitably build in the back of your throat.See ItCanned Zebra TarantulasContinuing on the creepy crawly train, we present canned zebra tarantulas. These suckers are boiled, dehydrated (not fried, as the description is sure to point out … as if that matters), and stuffed in a can whole. There are also no artificial colors or flavors, though if you ask us, there probably should be. Canned tarantulas are a great source of protein (and a great way to scare the living sh*t out of anyone who has annoyed you lately).See ItGrandma’s White DirtThis is literal dirt, taken from the ground and sold to be ingested. While it was a common practice in times of want to eat dirt because for its mineral properties, we still can’t quite get over that in this day and age. Each order of Grandma’s White Dirt gets you over one pound of unprocessed, freshly-mined dirt. What does it for us is the packaging. We’re pretty big fans of the fact that this white dirt comes in a standard Ziploc bag.See ItSmoked RattlesnakeWith that dirty little interlude over, we’re back to the ground-bound elite with smoked rattlesnake meat (yeehaw!). In certain parts of the country, rattlesnake meat is served often and in a variety of ways, but we can’t get over the canned factor of this one particular item. Maybe if we didn’t know it was rattlesnake before eating it, we’d do it, but the thought of a slithering beast being stuffed into a can puts us over the edge into Nope-landia.See ItRanch Dressing SodaThis might honestly be the least offensive (or most offensive, if you’re the adventurous sort and view those that put ranch dressing on everything as the scum of the Earth) item on the list. Made with cane sugar and boasting a “100-percent authentic taste,” this soda is the perfect complement to … well, it probably goes great with something. We can’t get over the thought of cane sugar and ranch powder together, which is how we assume this soda came into being. The company that makes this soda, Lester’s Fixins Food Sodas, also makes sweet corn- and bacon-flavored pop, both of which sound more appetizing than this iteration.See ItTesticle JerkyKnow what rocky mountain oysters are? If you didn’t, you do now. Now, rocky mountain oysters on their own may be too high of a mountain to climb (even though, when breaded and fried, you’d have a hard time knowing what they were), but take that image in your head and dehydrate it. If you’re a guy reading this, chances are you feel for that bull. There was probably the sharp intake of breath and the involuntary covering of one’s own parts. For us, this item makes the list for having to think about the process of making it.See ItBertie Bott’s Every Flavor BeansIf you’ve ever read any Harry Potter book, you know what these are. In the novels, Every Flavor Beans have the potential to be the best flavors on the planet or the worst. Because magic. Well, it was magic until jelly bean giant Jelly Belly decided to seize the moment and make some of the most disgusting flavors come to life. Boxes of Berti Bott’s contain not only good flavors like cherry or buttered popcorn, but also fresh cut grass and vomit. We’re of the camp that if we have to taste vomit, it’s because we’ve worked hard to get to that point (read: we drank too much, didn’t hydrate, and generally acted the fool the night before).See It 10 Classic Vodka Cocktail Recipes You Can Mix at Home The Absolute Worst Movies to Watch with a Date The Best Pillows Designed With Stomach Sleepers In Mind Editors’ Recommendations Expert Pitmaster Tips on How to Smoke a Brisket at Home The Best Documentaries on Netflix Right Nowlast_img read more

Fewer Guns and Ammunition Coming Into Island

first_img He emphasised that increased mobility of the police will act as a force against crime, as more law-enforcement personnel will be able to go into communities to put pressure on wrongdoers, and provide security for law-abiding citizens.   Minister of National Security, Hon. Robert Montague, says intelligence is showing that there is a reduction in guns and ammunition coming into the island, due to the two ships and surveillance plane acquired by the Government.According to Mr. Montague, the Government is equipping the security forces so that criminal elements will have no cover from the law.Earlier this year, the Government acquired and deployed the two vessels and aircraft for the protection of Jamaica’s borders from illicit activities.The Minister, who was addressing a handover ceremony for 30 vehicles to the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) today (July 3) at the Office of the Commissioner of Police, in St. Andrew, said public spaces and roadways will have increased police presence.He emphasised that increased mobility of the police will act as a force against crime, as more law-enforcement personnel will be able to go into communities to put pressure on wrongdoers, and provide security for law-abiding citizens.Mr.  Montague told the audience that the top-five most-wanted guns are featured in 51 murders in six police divisions, and “increased vehicle checkpoints will help to cut down on the movement of weapons”.He also informed that 45 vehicles are being serviced and will soon be assigned to the JCF, while a search is on for 120 pickups and 80 cars for the police.Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Clifford Blake, who received the vehicles on behalf of Commissioner, George Quallo, said the units will go into operation immediately.Mr. Blake implored the assigned drivers to ensure that proper care is given to the units.

Sharks with very sharp tweets

first_imgIn today’s Big Story podcast, they crack jokes, they check one another out, they challenge stereotypes and they offer their followers a glimpse inside their everyday lives. At least as far inside as the data gleaned from their tags and published on social media can take us. The heart of Ocearch’s approach to conservation and research is to raise awareness and make people feel a connection to the creatures they’re studying and protecting—hence, sharks with Twitter accounts.But the strategy goes much deeper than that and has sparked controversy both inside the scientific community and in some of the places, including Nova Scotia, where it conducts its research. How did the company morph from an entertainment house making a reality TV show to a data-centric science organization? And can other organizations looking to inspire passion in their supporters learn anything from its approach?GUEST: Chelsea Murray, The Walrus, co-founder of The DeepAudio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/thebigstory/s/rogers-aod.leanstream.co/rogers/thebigstory_dai/tbs_06202019_dai.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.You can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google and SpotifyYou can also find it at thebigstorypodcast.ca.last_img read more

MikelNigeria5.227.9+22.7 Messi and Ronaldo probably only appear to be underperforming on the international level because they’ve spent the past decade thrashing defenses in Spain’s La Liga while playing for two clubs that are lousy with all-world talent. Scoring at a pace of roughly a goal per game is difficult to sustain over the course of a single season; Messi and Ronaldo have been doing it for 10. They’re not performing terribly for their national teams, they’ve just set the bar too high for themselves.But then there’s Neymar, the other greatest player in the world. He has set his bar pretty high during his time with Barcelona and now with Paris Saint-Germain. But unlike the two legends lording over him, Neymar has been able to vault over it — he scores at roughly the same rate for Brazil as he does for his club, and he provides more assists. And Neymar has increased his share of the team’s expected goals plus assists by 12.8 percentage points from club team to national team.Argentina is done; Portugal is done; Brazil and Belgium meet tomorrow in Kazan to decide who gets a spot in the semifinals. So it will be Hazard and Neymar trying to become the next Pelé, Maradona or Zidane.Check out our latest World Cup predictions. I. RakiticCroatia15.835.2+19.4 C. RonaldoPortugal54.659.4+4.8 B.

Ronaldo has found it more difficult to score for Portugal: Over the same span, he scored an entire goal per 90 minutes fewer with Portugal than he did with Real Madrid, and he averaged 1.53 fewer expected goals plus assists. And Uruguay’s superstar striker Edinson Cavani has had it even worse: He averaged 2.04 fewer expected goals plus assists per 90 minutes with La Celeste than he with Paris Saint-Germain.The outlook gets brighter for Messi and Ronaldo (but not for Cavani) when you consider their contributions as a percentage of their national team’s expected goals plus assists versus their club team’s since 2014: Messi was responsible for 57.5 percent of Barcelona’s expected output and 63.3 percent of Argentina’s, while Ronaldo accounted for 54.6 percent of Real Madrid’s expected output and 59.4 percent of Portugal’s.

Instead we think about how they played for their national teams, and especially how they performed at major international tournaments like the World Cup. We think of a 17-year-old named Pelé delivering Brazil its first title in 1958; we think of Diego Maradona ripping through England’s defenses (and famously getting a little handsy with the ball in the box) in 1986; we think of the French maestro Zinedine Zidane scoring twice on home soil to topple Ronaldo and Brazil in 1998.Some players just seem built to wear their national team’s jersey.We wanted to know if there are certain players who play well for their club but disappear when playing for their national team — and certain players who raise their production when playing for country. So we looked at the tallies of expected goals and assists per 90 minutes for every player at the World Cup and compared the difference between club stats1Big five European leagues only. and country2Including World Cup, World Cup qualifiers and each confederation’s tournament. since 2014. We also looked at each player’s share of his entire team’s expected goals plus assists.Among the remaining stars at the 2018 World Cup, the best example of one who thrives while representing his country is Belgium’s Eden Hazard — at least based on raw production. The quick and crafty man from Wallonia has a knack for playing his best soccer when the world is watching. From 2014 to 2018, Hazard scored 0.30 more goals per 90 minutes and provided 0.68 more assists per 90 minutes while wearing a Belgium jersey than while repping Chelsea blue — while his expected goals plus assists are 0.45 better for Belgium.Hazard’s exceptional international form has carried over into this World Cup: In three games played, he contributed two goals and two assists — one of which tied the match against Japan after Belgium had gone down 2-0. The diminutive Belgian danced at the left corner of the penalty area, shrugging off a pursuant Yuya Osako before delivering an inch-perfect cross with his left foot to the edge of the 6-yard box and onto Marouane Fellaini’s head. Fellaini scored, but Hazard’s brilliance was responsible.Hazard’s form and contributions are expected. Thomas Meunier’s form and contributions, on the other hand, are a bit of a surprise. The right back has been perfectly competent for Paris Saint-Germain, but he’s been an outright world beater on the international stage: Since 2014, he’s scored 0.32 more goals per 90 minutes and provided 0.73 more assists per 90 minutes while playing for Belgium than for his clubs. The biggest of his 10 international assists was the one he provided to Nacer Chadli to knock off Japan on Monday. Both Meunier and Hazard are among the top seven players at the World Cup when it comes to expected goals plus assists for country versus club. But based on actual goals and actual assists, both Belgians are in the top three.3Only Poland/Wolfsburg winger Jakub Blaszczykowski has them both beat. J.

SilvaPortugal-0.60+0.04-0.56-0.45 The leaderboard is peppered with players who have made a difference in Russia: Swiss mainstays Blerim Dzemaili and Xherdan Shaqiri led their team to the round of 16, while Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic and Real Madrid’s Luka Modric have been the backbone of the Croatian attack. Another quick and crafty midfielder — this one from Colombia — has been very good for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich over the past four seasons, but he’s been downright marvelous for Los Cafeteros: From 2014 to 2018, James Rodriguez scored nearly half a goal more per 90 minutes while wearing the yellow Colombia kit than while donning club colors. In our sample, his difference in expected goals plus assists from club to country is second to only Dzemaili, who plays for Bologna in Italy. It’s no surprise then that Colombia was eliminated by England in the round of 16 when a calf injury sidelined James.Hazard and James are built to wear their national team jerseys. But there are others — two of whom are often invoked in the GOAT conversation — who seem to perform a little worse, or at least score with less frequency, on the international stage. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the two best players in the world,4They’ve each won five of the past 10 Ballon d’Or awards, given to the best soccer player in the world. but both have underwhelmed a bit while representing their countries.

Neighbouring South American countries stiffen borders as chaos in Venezuela triggers

Around 1,200 Venezuelan migrants fled back over the border after the attack.A judge had earlier ruled to prohibit the entry of all Venezuelans to the state but the decision was overturned by Brazil’s supreme court.The Brazilian government has said it is committed to helping Venezuelans and will continue to try to spread migrants throughout various states in the country.The Venezuelan government issued a statement asking the Brazilian government to “take measures to safeguard and secure” Venezuelan citizens, “their families and belongings.”Ecuador and Peru announce restrictive measuresMeanwhile, a new rule came into effect in Ecuador Saturday requiring Venezuelan citizens entering the country to present a valid passport. Previously, Ecuador accepted other forms of identification.CNN was present at the border and spoke to some of the migrants. Many were caught by surprise, having started their journeys before the measure went into effect.“My family is fragmented, destroyed. We’re no longer together,” one Venezuelan migrant told CNN Sunday. “My son is in Peru, my daughter in Chile, I have yet another daughter who’s on her way to Poland. Give me a break! When will I get them all together again? My wife is in Venezuela. The situation is dire.”On Sunday as Ecuador’s Interior Ministry relaxed the identification rule slightly, saying on Twitter that the law allows for children and adolescents to not present their passport “as long as both parents have it and show their relationship of filiation and kinship.”The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says more than half a million Venezuelans have crossed into Ecuador via Colombia since the start of the year and that the number is accelerating with some 30,000 entering in the first week of August alone.The government has declared a state of emergency in human mobility in three provinces, meaning it can assign additional resources to Venezuelans.Ecuador is both a destination and transit point for Venezuelans escaping the humanitarian crisis in their own country. Some of the migrants are also heading towards Peru and countries further south.The Peruvian government has followed Ecuador’s lead, announcing Saturday that beginning August 25, Venezuelan citizens who want to enter Peru can do so only with a valid passport.Once land of opportunityIt is a reversal of fortunes for Venezuela, which was once the richest country in Latin America and a destination of choice for those fleeing turmoil in the region during the 1970s and 80s.Colombians fleeing civil war, Peruvians fleeing the political and economic instability under Alberto Fujimori and Chileans fleeing the Pinochet dictatorship sought refuge in the oil-rich country, which was seen as a land of opportunity.An economic crisis is driving the current mass migration out of Venezuela, where residents now live with food shortages, overcrowded hospitals, inflation and political turmoil.For now, the exodus shows no sign of slowing.Venezuelans filed 117,000 asylum claims in the first six months of this year, surpassing the total number of claims made in 2017, according to the UNHCR.“The exodus of Venezuelans from the country is one of Latin America’s largest mass-population movements in history,” UNHCR spokesman William Spindler said in a statement. “Many of the Venezuelans are moving on foot, in an odyssey of days and even weeks in precarious conditions.”What is Venezuela’s government doing?On Friday, President Nicolas Maduro announced new economic measures to go into effect starting Monday — — including a 60-fold increase in the minimum wage that will being to take effect on September 7.Maduro said the government will provide assistance on the minimum wage increase for 90 days but employers are nervous they won’t have enough money to pay their staff.The President also announced that the government was removing five zeroes from the Venezuelan currency — dropping the Bolivar’s value more than 90% — and launching a cryptocurrency called “Petro.” Venezuela plans to roll out a new currency Monday, the “Bolivar Soberano,” which will be worth 100,000 “old” Bolivares and was created to simplify transactions in the hyperinflationary Venezuelan economy.Maduro made a Facebook Live address on Sunday, saying, “We are going through a re-balancing process.“This does not happen overnight,” he said. “This re-balancing process will be developed. This is a magic formula that is truly impressive. That we discovered through our own thoughts and analysis.”A bank holiday was declared Monday out of the blue, with banks remaining closed even as the new currency was to take effect.Explaining the measures on national television Sunday night, Maduro said: “This is a really impressive, magic formula that we discovered while studying with our own, Venezuelan, Latin American-rooted thinking.”The latest announcements caused merchants to close their doors over the weekend, not knowing how to reflect the new currency in their pricing. Shoppers, on the other hand, rushed to supermarkets and gas stations that remained open.The International Monetary Fund says Venezuela’s inflation may hit 1 million percent by the end of the year.Amidst the chaos, there have been attempts on Maduro’s life. Two high-ranking military officers were detained earlier this month in connection with an alleged drone attack against Maduro. The government said drones armed with explosives flew toward the president as he spoke at a military parade.Maduro has accused opposition groups of orchestrating the August 4 failed attack and claimed the “financiers and planners” of the operation live in Florida.CNN’s Flora Charner and Stefano Pozzebon contributed to this report. read more

EA Online Pass codes have a major flaw they expire

first_imgPublishers hate sales of used games that retailers push so hard. The reason being they see no additional revenue from the re-sale of a game. The retailer keeps all the profit for themselves. In order to combat this EA introduced Online Pass, which involves forcing the owner of a used game to pay $10 to unlock access to certain features of the game e.g. multiplayer and DLC.In order to make Online Pass work, when you buy a new EA game there’s an activation stage that sees you enter a code on your console to unlock the full feature set. Every new game that uses Online Pass includes an activation code usually on a sheet of paper in the case.The problem is, EA only keeps activation codes active for a limited amount of time. That means if you pick up a brand new game several months after its launch, the code may no longer be valid, and you don’t get access to the full game without some additional pain.EA has confirmed this does happen, but only for certain games. One example is Dragon Age 2 with its Online Pass expiring on March 31, 2012. If you buy a copy after that date, you have to contact EA to get a new code that does work. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit also uses a limited time code, which has now expired.The thing that doesn’t make sense is why EA has chosen to do this. A new game should include an activation code that is valid for as long as the game is on the shelf. Why would you put a limit on it? That’s a question EA has yet to answer.Read more at JoystiqMatthew’s OpinionThis is one of the issues gamers face when relying on an online system in order to allow a piece of software to function. You are at the mercy of whatever the game publisher has decided to do, even if that decision makes very little sense.It’s one of my major concerns about games I am activating and playing now continuing to be playable years from now. I can load up any game I own on the PSOne, PS2, even as far back as the NES and SNES, and they will just work. Will we be able to say that about a game released today on PS3, PC, or the Xbox 360 in a decade?EA needs to explain this thinking. I can’t come up with a single reason why you would put a time limit on a new game. Can you?last_img read more

Alzheimer du vin et du thé vert pour aider à combattre la

first_imgAlzheimer : du vin et du thé vert pour aider à combattre la maladie ?Des scientifiques cherchent à exploiter les propriétés du vin et du thé qui contiennent une molécule capable d’empêcher les plaques amyloïdes de la maladie d’Alzheimer de détruire les cellules nerveuses du cerveau. Et si le moyen de combattre efficacement la maladie d’Alzheimer se trouvait dans une tasse ? Depuis quelques années, des chercheurs se penchent sur le pouvoir du vin et du thé vert à lutter contre cette maladie neurodégénérative et plus précisément, sur celui des polyphénols qu’ils contiennent, respectivement le resvératrol et l’épigallocatéchine gallate (EGCG). Ces molécules réputées pour leurs propriétés antioxydantes sont également connues pour leur action bénéfique contre le diabète, l’obésité ou encore le cancer. Ainsi, des comprimés contenant de fortes doses de resvératrol font l’objet d’un essai clinique de phase II aux États-Unis pour étudier leurs effets sur des patients atteints de démence légère à modérée. Néanmoins, le mode d’action exacte de ces molécules restait inconnu, du moins jusqu’ici. En effet, les recherches avancent aujourd’hui avec l’étude publiée par des biologistes de l’université de Leeds dans The Journal of Biological Chemistry. Au cours de ces travaux, les scientifiques ont réalisé une expérience consistant à mettre en présence des cellules nerveuses avec des plaques amyloïdes, cet agrégat de peptides bêta-amyloïdes et de protéines tau qui, en se collant sur les neurones, provoquent leur destruction. “Quand nous avons ajouté les molécules extraites du vin et du thé vert, les plaques ne provoquaient plus la mort de ces cellules”, rapporte le professeur Nigel Hooper qui a dirigé ces travaux. “Nous voulions voir si la forme précise de ces plaques jouait un rôle essentiel” dans ce processus, explique le chercheur et en effet, avec ces molécules, les plaques “étaient déformées et ne pouvaient plus s’attacher aux molécules [prions] situées à la surface des neurones”. Un pas important pour mieux comprendre la progression de la maladie À lire aussiPourquoi certains s’évanouissent-ils à la vue du sang ?Pour l’heure, l’étude n’a été menée qu’en laboratoire et sur des cellules isolées mais cette découverte constitue selon les chercheurs, d’ores et déjà un pas important. Ceci “augmente notre compréhension de la cause et de la progression de la maladie d’Alzheimer. C’est une fausse idée de penser qu’Alzheimer est une partie naturelle du vieillissement; c’est une maladie que nous pensons pouvoir guérir au bout du compte en trouvant de nouvelles opportunités pour des cibles de traitement comme celle-ci”, a expliqué le Pr Nigel Hooper cité par le Huffington Post. Désormais, la prochaine étape consiste donc à comprendre en quoi l’interaction entre l’amyloïde et les prions est délétère pour la cellule, a ajouté le chercheur. Parallèlement, à ces recherches, une étude publiée le même jour dans la revue Neurology, a montré que le nombre de malades d’Alzheimer pourrait tripler d’ici 2050.Le 11 février 2013 à 18:28 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
