Balotelli hailed after overcoming injury scare to inspire Liverpool comeback

first_img1 Mario Balotelli was once again the centre of attention at Anfield on Tuesday night as Liverpool came from behind to secure a dramatic 2-1 Capital One Cup victory over Swansea.The striker has faced criticism for his performances for the Reds since his summer move from AC Milan but finally made headlines for the right reasons, climbing off the bench to pull his side level four minutes from time before Dejan Lovren snatched a late, late winner.Balotelli’s goal was only his second for the Merseysiders and first in nine games, and assistant manager Coln Pascoe said the Italy international had got his “just rewards” after working hard in training.He added: ”It is great for Mario. He wants to work all the time. He is still a young lad, a tremendous talent and that is what he wants to work on – his movement, his finishing.”There had been claims the ex-Manchester City hitman was sent away from a warm-up exercise by Reds coach Mike Marsh after an alteraction.But that was denied after the match by Pascoe, who insisted he was sent in early after feeling a twinge in his knee.Pascoe said: ”Mario was sent in because he sort of twisted his studs in the ground.”He felt something in his knee. We had to assess him. But he is fine – he only went in as a precaution.” Mario Balotelli last_img read more

Accused Spy Was Hot on Trail of Lunar Ice

first_imgBefore being arrested Monday and charged with trying to sell classified information to an FBI agent posing as an Israeli intelligence agent, planetary physicist Stewart Nozette was on a mission. Fifteen years earlier, he had gotten a whiff of ice hidden in the unbearably cold shadows of polar craters on the moon. Today, he heads one instrument team and co-leads another probing for lunar ice. Early signs of ice were promising.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Nozette, 52, got the lunar ice bug after running a jury-rigged experiment using the radio transmitter on the Clementine spacecraft orbiting the moon in 1994. Earth-based radar had strongly suggested subsurface ice in permanently shadowed—and therefore frigid—craters near the north pole of Mercury, of all places. So Nozette and his colleagues on Clementine—a joint technology demonstration mission between NASA and the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization—beamed a radio signal at the moon’s south polar region so that it penetrated a few meters before bouncing to Earth. Signs in the reflected, radar-like signal indicated subsurface ice, at least to Nozette and colleagues who reported their results in Science (29 November 1996, p. 1495).Many researchers disputed the Clementine results, but the Lunar Prospector mission later added support for polar hydrogen and presumably ice. Then NASA was told to send astronauts to the moon, where water in a deep freeze would come in handy. So Nozette, who is currently associated with the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) in Houston, Texas, became principal investigator of a bona fide radar instrument onboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter now orbiting the moon and co-PI of a similar radar on the now-defunct Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft orbited by India.Early Chandrayaan-1 results reported at last March’s Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston looked enticing, although co-PI Paul Spudis of LPI would not go so far as to make a claim for water. The LCROSS impact into one shadowed polar crater on 9 October failed to loft any obvious water into view, but that has not dampened the spirits of enthusiasts for the wider-ranging radars. Analysis of the radar data continues without one of their leaders; public announcements of results should come within the next few months.last_img read more

Artificial intelligence could diagnose rare disorders using just a photo of a face

first_img Artificial intelligence could diagnose rare disorders using just a photo of a face FDNA Rare disorders often show up in someone’s appearance. Individuals with Noonan syndrome—a genetic condition that inhibits the body’s growth and development—can have wide-set eyes, for example, and those with Bain type intellectual disability—caused by a mutated gene on the X chromosome—sport almond-shaped eyes and small chins (see above). Now, researchers have trained artificial intelligence to recognize these features, paving the way for early—and cheap—diagnoses.Scientists built a computer program, DeepGestalt, and trained it on a publicly available data set of more than 17,000 photos of patients affected by more than 200 rare disorders. The program then used deep learning to recognize which patterns of markers were linked to hundreds of different genetic syndromes.In a test with 502 new images, DeepGestalt successfully placed the correct syndrome in its top 10 list 91% of the time, the researchers report today in Nature Medicine. The program also outperformed doctors in spotting patients with Angelman syndrome and Cornelia de Lange syndrome—an inherited genetic mutation that can cause, among other symptoms, low-set ears and an upturned nose—versus other disorders, and in separating patients with different genetic subtypes of Noonan syndrome.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The researchers say the tool could one day be used in combination with genome testing to help doctors search for specific genetic markers and more quickly home in on an accurate diagnosis.

Top stories: Francis Collins’s decade, the upside of melting Arctic ice, and ‘ethical’ eggs

In that time, Collins has helped shield NIH from threatened budget cuts, as well as the upheaval that has shaken many other federal agencies under President Donald Trump’s administration.

Lewis Hamilton still feels more hunter than hunted

first_imgTriple world champion Lewis Hamilton still sees himself as hunter rather than hunted in the Formula One title race despite victory in Hungary putting him in the overall lead for the first time this season.The Briton seized the lead from Mercedes teammate and title rival Nico Rosberg after an unprecedented fifth victory at the Hungaroring on Sunday that opened up a six-point lead over the German.With half the 21-race season now completed and Germany’s Hockenheim circuit next up on Sunday, Hamilton, who has often spoken of how he thrives in adversity, still sees himself in hot pursuit.”I’m just still in the same mentality of chasing, I’m still chasing,” he told reporters.”(It’s) been great to be able to come back with fewer engines, with the struggle that we had at the beginning of the year, so I’m very, very proud of that but conscious that there’s still a long way to go.”Hamilton trailed Rosberg by a massive 43 points after May’s Spanish Grand Prix following a spate of reliability problems in the early part of the season.The 31-year-old, who singled out that Barcelona race and the collision between the Mercedes pair as the low point of his season, has hit back with a run of five wins from the last six races including victory in the last three.His early season troubles have left him short of power unit components, however, and Hamilton knows he may have to take a grid penalty or start from the back of the grid at some point later in the year.advertisementHAMILTON SEEKS MAXIMUM POINTSIn order to limit the damage to his title hopes, Hamilton is aiming for maximum points with races like Silverstone two weeks ago, where he claimed a sensational win on home soil after dominating all weekend.”I really would love to come out of the next race with another result like this so that when I do go to Spa or Monza, whichever one it is that I have to take my penalty…that it’s minimum damage,” he said.”So I need to make sure I stay on it, like Silverstone weekends, from now on.”Hockenheim is the last race before the August break, with the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa and then Italy’s Monza following on after that.last_img read more

Nidahas Trophy: Jaydev Unadkat eyes World Cup spot with good performances

first_imgJaydev Unadtkat is targeting the Indian ODI squad for the World Cup next year in England with good performances in the upcoming Nidahas Trophy T20 tri-series featuring India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.Unadkat made his T20 debut against Zimbabwe at Harare in 2016 was out of national reckoning for over a year. But, after a good show in the Indian Premier League last year with the Rising Pune Supergaint, he made a comeback in the home series against Sri Lanka in December and since then has been a part of the India T20 squad.Unadkat will be one of the most experienced bowlers in the absence of regulars Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, who have been rested for the series. Therefore, he is planning to make full use of this series to seal an ODI spot ahead of the 50-over World Cup next year.WATCH”I will definitely think that this is a build up for the big tournaments coming up, not just the World T20, but the limited-overs World Cup as well. As I said, it is about pushing for place in the team, being able to execute skills in the middle now that I have the confidence of the (team) management and the skipper,” the left-arm pacer told PTI.”It (the tri-series) is a very good opportunity for me, having played a couple of series now with the Indian team. I am settling down in the team well and I have got the confidence to execute my skills out there at the international level, which I badly needed when I was making this comeback,” Unadkat added.advertisementSpeaking about India’s plans against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the T20 tri-series, he said: “It will be an advantage, for sure, having known their strengths and how they play in situations. Those were T20s and we are again playing T20s. So that will be an advantage for us to plan things for their batsman in the middle and a couple of new guys are coming in and we will be looking to plan for them too,” he said.Unadkat had picked up four wickets in the home series against Sri Lanka. He then went to South Africa for the T20 Internationals and played in Johannesburg and Centurion, grabbing three wickets.In his international T20 career, Unadkat has grabbed seven wickets in six games with best bowling figures of 2 for 15.The tri-series in Lanka begins on March 6 with India taking on Sri Lanka at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo and the final will be held on March 18. Unadkat will spearhead the pace attack along with Mumbai s Shardul Thakur. Mohammed Siraj is the third paceman in the squad.Unadkat, who returned with figures of 1/33 in Johannesburg and 2/42 in Centurion, said that the South Africa trip was a good learning curve.”It (South Africa tour) was a good learning experience. The wickets were different and the boundaries were in fact, a bit smaller than what we are used to playing here in India. Experience wise it was good for me to bowl on those wickets and to those batsmen in their own backyard and the pressure was high of playing South Africa in South Africa,” he added.(With PTI inputs)ALSO WATCH:last_img read more

LIVE: East Bengal vs Mohun Bagan

first_imgEast Bengal 2-2 Mohun Bagan: Khalid Jamil’s men win eighth consecutive CFL title Goal Last updated 2 years ago 19:06 24/9/2017 East Bengal fans East Bengal official Twitter handle The Kolkata Derby ended in a draw but the Red and Golds won a record 39th title in Siliguri… East Bengal won their eighth consecutive Calcutta Football League title after they drew 2-2 with arch-rivals Mohun Bagan in the final Premier Division ‘A’ match of the 2017 season at the Kanchenjunga Stadium in Siliguri.Carlyle Mitchell (3′ OG) pushed Mohun Bagan ahead early on but Laldanmawia Ralte’s (44′) levelled before the first half. Ansumana Kromah (49′ Pen.) lit up hopes for the Mariners but Mahmoud Al Amna (66′ Pen.) ensured Khalid Jamil’s charges won the Kolkata title, by the virtue of a better goal difference, both ending up with 23 points.In Jamil’s first taste of the Kolkata derby, he threw no surprises when it came to team selection. Luis Barreto manned the goalposts while Samad Ali Mallick, Gurwinder Singh, Carlyle Mitchell and Lalramchullova were posted in front of him in defense.Syrian recruit Mahmoud Al Amna and India regular Mohammed Rafique presented a strong central midfield pairing while Laldanmawia Ralte and Nikhil Poojary started on the wings. Gabriel Fernandes supported Trinidadian striker Willis Plaza up top.Shilton Paul was entrusted with the gloves for Mohun Bagan yet again. Arijit Bagui, Eze Kinglsey, Kinshuk Debnath and Ricky Lallammawma made up the backline.Shilton D’Silva, Raynier Fernandes, Nikhil Kadam and Azharuddin Mallick constituted a flat four-man midfield. The lethal pairing of Stephane Kamo Bayi and Ansumana Kromah spearheaded the Mariner’s attack.It took less than 180 seconds for the East Bengal supporter heavy Kanchenjunga Stadium to go silent. Azharuddin, who was the hero the last time these two sides faced off against each other, shot from the clearance off Mitchell who did well the first time to avert the danger off a prancing Kamo Bayi.However, the Trinidadian in attempt to send the ball out of play guided it right into his own net, clearly agonising his goalkeeper who was left astounded. With nearly the whole match left, East Bengal were pushed onto the backfoot and were left to play catch-up.Mohun Bagan looked the more dominant side for the next twenty minutes as the first real chance for the Red and Golds only arrived post the half-hour mark through Al Amna’s failed attempt on goal. Gabriel Fernandes did try his best to pull one back for his side but the finishing touch went missing from the Porvorim-born attacker.Shilton D’Silva was guilty of tripping Gabriel and was duly booked for it. It was Jamil’s former Aizawl FC ward Laldanmawia Ralte who brought East Bengal back into the game from the ensuing free-kick.Lalramchullova found Ralte from Gabriel’s curling freekick and the Mizoram-born winger displayed fine poaching instincts to deposit the ball past Shilton Paul.Goals on either end of the half brought the first period to a close but a draw would not have been enough for the Mariners .Carlyle Mitchell’s evening turned from bad to worse when he conceded a penalty minutes after the resumption as he brought down Kamo Bayi inside the box.Ansumana Kromah did not mistake whatsoever as his six-yarder ensured Mohun Bagan edged ahead, again.Kamo Bayi missed a sitter within a couple of minutes of the penalty. Kromah fed the ball to his Ivorian teammate who was one on one with the gloveman but his shot went wide, much to the surprise of his teammates.East Bengal upped the ante with Willis Plaza, Al Amna and Gabriel all going for glory but the Bagan defense held on.Three minutes past the hour mark, Raynier Fernandes in a moment of naivety gave away a penalty after Laldanmawia’s appeal was awarded by referee Ranjit Bakshi. Willis Plaza’s on and off form meant Al Amna was entrusted with the spot kick and the I-League winner came good to equalise for his team, again.Both teams ended the match with a man down, which turned out to be quite high-octane in the last quarter of an hour. Bagan skipper Kinshuk Debnath was the first to be sent off; second-half substitute Surabuddin Mallick following suit within a couple of minutes – both going into the book twice.Even five minutes of injury time was not enough for Shankarlal Chakraborty’s side who succumbed to their cross-town rivals yet again in the race for the Kolkata title. Both teams ended the season on 23 points each. Both having conceded only five goals prior to this match, the title was decided on number of goals scored as the Red and Golds netted in 28 in their nine game as Mohun Bagan could only manage 22, five less than the champions.last_img read more
