Sri Lanka vs West Indies, World Cup 2019: Weather updates in Chester-le-Street todayKicker: Sri Lanka vs West Indies, Today’s Weather Forecast: Here’s all that you need to know about the weather forecast and prediction for rain on Sunday at Chester-le-Street in Durham.advertisement Next India Today Web Desk Chester-le-StreetJuly 1, 2019UPDATED: July 1, 2019 12:29 IST Sri Lanka and West Indies, both the teams will play for pride. (Reuters Photo)Dimuth Karunaratne and his Sri Lanka squad were still in contention at the Cricket World Cup when they practiced on the eve of their group game against West Indies.They were out of contention before the sunset Sunday, when England beat India at Edgbaston.It was a payback of sorts from the tournament hosts. The Lasith Malinga-inspired upset win over England at Leeds on June 21 revived Sri Lanka’s prospects of reaching the semifinals, and also opened the door for Pakistan and Bangladesh.Until then, it appeared the top four of Australia, India, New Zealand and England were destined for the semifinals. That loss dented England’s chances, and a subsequent loss to Australia put the hosts under even more pressure.Going into the last week of the group stage, only Australia is assured of a place in the last four, with seven wins and 14 points from eight games. India and New Zealand are on 11 points and England is back in the fourth spot on 10. Pakistan (9) and Bangladesh (7) are still in the hunt, but Sri Lanka (6) can’t make it – even if it wins its last two games against West Indies and India to finish on 10 points and England loses its last game group to New Zealand.The tiebreaker, if teams finish equal on points, wins – and England would have more in the W column because Sri Lanka picked up two points from washouts.Sri Lanka was trounced in its opening game against New Zealand, beat Afghanistan and then had washouts against Pakistan and Bangladesh. A loss to Australia had them on the verge of an exit until the win over England shook up the whole competition. With the loss here to South Africa last Friday, Sri Lanka lost control of its tournament destiny.advertisementThe West Indies slumped out of contention after a loss to India three days ago, but coach Floyd Reifer said it wouldn’t influence their game plan against Sri Lanka at Chester-le-Street. He said the future starts Monday for his team.Rain may interrupt Match 39 of ICC Cricket World Cup between Sri Lanka and West Indies as the weather is partly cloudy. However, rain is expected for a very short period of time so a full game is on the cards.

Mr. Holness’ urging came against the background of what he cited as the need to resolve the culture of bureaucracy characterising sections of the public service, and placing greater focus on achieving the targeted outcomes. Story Highlights These, he said, include the seamless processing and approval of Special Economic Zone (SEZ) applications submitted by business entities. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has charged the Jamaica Special Economic Zone Authority (JSEZA) to utilise all resources at its disposal, including technology, to ensure that it operates efficiently and effectively in dispensing its services. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has charged the Jamaica Special Economic Zone Authority (JSEZA) to utilise all resources at its disposal, including technology, to ensure that it operates efficiently and effectively in dispensing its services.These, he said, include the seamless processing and approval of Special Economic Zone (SEZ) applications submitted by business entities.He was delivering the keynote address during Wednesday’s (July 11) official opening of the JSEZA’s head office on Waterloo Road, St. Andrew.Mr. Holness’ urging came against the background of what he cited as the need to resolve the culture of bureaucracy characterising sections of the public service, and placing greater focus on achieving the targeted outcomes.He contended that far too much time is being spent by some persons in trying to “perfect bureaucracy” rather than securing results.Such bureaucracy, he argued, helps to foster corruption as persons pay for the expedition of services or to override and ignore rules and procedures.Mr. Holness argued that no service being delivered “must take 10 days if it can take one, and every person involved in public service delivery must be committed to that objective in order “for us to realise the true potential of our country, which stares us in the face every day with the great brand and location that we have”.Noting the JSEZA’s small staff, Mr. Holness said this is “deliberate”, because “sometimes we believe we need to have massive organisations in order to deliver (good) service”, while urging thatoperations be carried out efficiently and effectively.The JSEZA, an agency of the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, is responsible for developing SEZs, which are pivotal to the Government’s Global Logistics Hub Initiative.The SEZs, which will replace the free zone regime, are a wide range of geographically defined areas that offer simple and efficient business regulations and procedures to investors.The Logistics Hub Initiative aims to position Jamaica as the fourth node in the global supply chain, along with facilities in Singapore; Rotterdam, Netherlands; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Kolkata: A 17-year-old budding footballer Abhijt Dey died after suffering an injury during a match in Bakura on Monday night.Shyamal Santra, Minister of State for Panchayat and Rural Development, visited Deb’s house and met his family. Santra assured a job for the elder brother of the deceased, who was selected for the state-level championship. Dey suffered an injury during a football match between Angshurali High School, where he was studying in Class-XI, and Magura High School. The match was held on Jaipur High School ground.

He was then taken to Bishnupur District Hospital and finally shifted to Bankura Smmelani Medical College and Hospital. He died at the hospital late on Monday night. A pall of gloom descended when the news of his death reached Jaipur block. Eyewitnesses said in the second half of the match, Magura High School got a corner kick and Dey, who was the goalkeeper of Angshumali High School, punched away a ball that was travelling towards the goal. While doing so, he came in contact with the striker of the opponent team. He fell on the ground and bled profusely. Abhijit was a promising local footballer and was loved by all. The Bankura district administration had made all the arrangements to provide best medical care but Dey did not respond to the treatment and died on Monday night.
ALBERTON, P.E.I. — In a rural corner of P.E.I., a small hospital is trying a first-in-Canada approach to delivering care that could offer a solution to doctor shortages across the country.Instead of a doctor doing hospital rounds in person, a nurse rolls in a TV cart with the physician on a video screen from an office elsewhere in the province or the country.Western Hospital in Alberton, P.E.I., has undertaken a six-month pilot “tele-rounding” project — doctors treating patients via a secure video conference link. They can check on patients, review their files, order tests and even use a digital, bluetooth-enabled stethoscope applied by a nurse while a doctor listens remotely.“There are no doctors on the floor there, but there are nursing staff and lab technicians. The nurse takes the cart from patient to patient, and we’re essentially doing hospital rounds technologically enabled and we’re providing physician care,” said Dr. Brett Belchetz, an emergency department physician and CEO of Maple — the Toronto company providing the tele-rounding service.Western Hospital approached Maple, which has a tele-medicine app used across Canada that gives people access to a doctor. Hospital officials hoped they could the technology for their patients who didn’t have a family doctor.Now, Maple hopes that if the P.E.I. pilot is successful, they could use it elsewhere.“There are doctors with excess capacity, and we’re allowing them to use that excess capacity to keep a rural hospital open,” Belchetz said.“If you look at the Stats Canada numbers, only about 50 per cent of Canadian doctors work fully all year despite the great need we have for more care.”Some 6.6 per cent of Canadians reported being unable to find a family doctor in 2010, with numbers substantially higher in some provinces.Similar tele-rounding is already done in some parts of the U.S. and the U.K.There are nine physicians participating in the tele-rounding pilot, including three physicians from Prince Edward Island and others from Nova Scotia and Ontario who are licensed to work on the Island.Hospital administrator Paul Young said the pilot project is a stop-gap to help address vacancies with family physicians and avoid having to close the hospital, which is about 50 minutes west of Summerside, P.E.I.He said since the pilot project was started, two new family physicians have been recruited to work at the hospital, starting early in 2019.“Our patients and our communities place their trust in our ability to provide safe, effective, quality care on a consistent basis, regardless of the challenges we may be facing,” Young said.Julie Gaudet recently spent 11 days in hospital in Alberton following surgery on her foot and says she was impressed with the tele-rounding system.“I thought it made a lot of sense, especially being out in the country, and with the shortage of doctors here on the Island. I thought it was an excellent experience,” she said.Gaudet, 67, said the doctors spent lots of time with her and asked lots of questions, and she quickly forgot that the doctor wasn’t actually in the room with her.“They were right there in front of you on the TV screen. I could see them. They could see me. He had all my charts from 20 years ago. He knew all my medications. It was just top notch,” she said.Young said most patients were a bit hesitant at first, but now they have patients asking for the “TV doctors.”Since the pilot project began in August, more than 1,200 tele-rounding consults have been performed on nearly 60 patients over the course of their hospital stay.Belchetz said the pilot project will be cost-neutral for the P.E.I. government — it won’t cost more than the province would have spent on having doctors there.“Nobody is suggesting we run hospitals in the future with no doctors. When they get a full complement of doctors we’ll be happy to step back. But this can be used when doctors are sick or on holidays,” Belchetz said.The pilot project will be reviewed in February.Kevin Bissett, The Canadian Press
EDMONTON – The federal food safety watchdog is advising consumers to use caution with infant formula products due to potential product substitution or tampering following reports from a Walmart store in southeast Edmonton.The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says the reports say products have been found where the tamper-proof seals had been broken and the product inside the containers had been substituted.It says no illnesses associated with the products, which have not been identified, have been reported.One Edmonton mother is speaking out after a container of formula she purchased turned out to be flour.“Terrifying,” said Emily Myrehaug. “I was just so shook up by it. What if I had given it to him (baby), I would have never forgiven myself if he got sick or worse.”Walmart Canada and Abbott, the makers of Similac baby formula said they’re aware of the incident and are investigating.Myrehaug hopes the same thing won’t happen to another family.“I’m definitely not blaming anybody. I definitely want to bring awareness to other parents. Just be mindful and to always check, always look.”The CFIA says consumers who use infant formulas should check the packaging material to ensure that the security seal is intact or if the product has been switched with something else.It says if the product appears to have been altered it should not be used and people should call them or local police.The agency says finding broken seals isn’t typically associated with the manufacturing process but can happen when a consumer returns altered products to the retail store for a refund.With files from City News

TORONTO — The number Canadian households paying for at least one streaming video service will eclipse traditional TV subscribers for the first time next year, predicts an annual report on consumer habits.Convergence Research Group says the growing popularity of an array of streaming options — ranging from Netflix and Crave to sports platform DAZN (pronounced da-zone) — is leading to a gradual shift in where viewers invest their entertainment dollars.While many households subscribe to both options, the report estimates that about 32 per cent of Canadian households will not have a traditional TV subscription by the end of next year — an increase of about two percentage points from 2018.Convergence Research president Brahm Eiley said the Canadian adoption of streaming offerings has been slower than in the United States, in part because Canadian audiences have less than half the streaming options Americans do.Traditional outlets, particularly cable TV and satellite across Canada, have seen a downturn in subscribers of roughly two per cent each year since 2015, the report says.Last year, Canadian TV subscribers declined by 204,000, and another 253,000 cancellations are expected this year, the report says.The report also estimates that Canadian revenue for streaming video services grew 33 per cent to $1.12 billion, with forecasts on track for it to reach $1.51 billion in 2019.

24 May 2011The leader of the Serb Radical Party, on trial for alleged war crimes, has been charged with contempt of court by the United Nations tribunal for the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s for failing to remove from his website information on protected witnesses in his trial. The leader of the Serb Radical Party, on trial for alleged war crimes, has been charged with contempt of court by the United Nations tribunal for the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s for failing to remove from his website information on protected witnesses in his trial.The charges, announced today, are the third of their kind against Vojislav Šešelj by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, since he turned himself in eight years ago to face charges of war crimes committed in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and the Vojvodina region of Serbia between 1991 and 1994.The information published on his website include three books Mr. Šešelj wrote and five confidential filings submitted by him as part of his main trial and two previous trials for contempt of court. The books and filings reveal confidential information about a number of protected witnesses who testified in his main trial, an ICTY statement said.Mr. Šešelj was found guilty on the first contempt trial. The second contempt trial is under way, and no date has been set for the third trial.“The tribunal regards the integrity of witnesses and confidential materials as essential elements in the rule of law,” the ICTY statement said. “Several persons who have attempted to interfere with the judicial process by revealing confidential information have been prosecuted.”
TORONTO — The union representing Air Canada flight attendants says it has filed a human rights complaint alleging “systemic discrimination and harassment” of its members.The Canadian Union of Public Employees says the airline’s policies on uniforms and makeup are discriminatory towards female flight attendants on the basis of sex, sexual orientation and race.It adds the company’s new onboard service managers, who perform in-flight assessments of flight attendants, have made sexist, racist and homophobic remarks and have engaged in “inappropriate behaviour” towards flight attendants of both sexes.“WestJet Airlines chief executive Gregg Saretsky retires unexpectedly — effective today” is locked WestJet Airlines chief executive Gregg Saretsky retires unexpectedly — effective immediatelyAir Canada beats expectations with record high revenue for the yearWestJet begins selling tickets — some for $0 — for its ultra-low cost carrier SwoopThe union that represents 8,500 flight attendants at Air Canada and Rouge is turning to the Canadian Human Rights Commission because the employer has failed to deal with members’ complaints, says CUPE section vice-president Beth Mahan.It is asking the commission to order a review of Air Canada policies and eliminate the onboard service managers program.A spokeswoman for Air Canada says that it has policies related to grooming and presentation, which she says is the standard for major international carriers.But she says that because the matter is before the human rights tribunal, the company won’t comment further.Last month, WestJet Airlines Ltd. filed an appeal after the Supreme Court of British Columbia refused to throw out a proposed class-action lawsuit that accuses the company of fostering a corporate culture that tolerates harassment against female employees.Former flight attendant Mandalena Lewis is suing WestJet over allegations of gender-based discrimination, accusing her former employer of breaking its promise to provide a harassment-free workplace for women.
Distilbène : des effets nocifs sur les garçons de la 3e générationUne nouvelle étude épidémiologique concernant les effets transgénérationnels du Distilbène, démontre un impact du produit sur les garçons de la 3e génération. Des résultats qui confirment les craintes des scientifiques.Hormone de synthèse, le Distilbène était prescrit aux femme enceintes afin de prévenir les fausses couches. Commercialisé pendant près de 30 ans, il a concerné entre deux et huit millions de femmes dans le monde entre 1948 et 1976, et 200.000 patientes en France. Aujourd’hui, le Distilbène est accusé d’avoir des effets transgénérationnels comme le montre une nouvelle étude menée par le professeur Charles Sultan du CHRU Lapeyronie de Montpellier.À lire aussiCortisol : définition, rôle, comment analyser les résultats ?D’après les résultats de ces recherches, les petits-enfants garçons des femmes qui ont été traitées avec le Distilbène seraient 40 à 50 fois plus exposés au risque de l’hypospadias, une malformation congénitale de l’urètre qui nécessite une opération de réparation explique l’Agence France Presse. Un effet transgénérationnel qui vient s’ajouter aux risques accrus de tumeurs vaginales et aux malformations génitales déjà observées chez ceux que l’on appelle les “enfants distilbène”. Ainsi, Nicolas Kalfa, chirurgien pédiatre co-signataire d’une analyse bientôt publiée, explique à l’AFP que si l’hypospadias touche en général 0,2% de la population, la fréquence de la malformation passe à 8,2% chez les garçons dont la grand-mère a été traitée avec l’hormone de synthèse. De son côté, le Pr Sultan explique que le distilbène représente aujourd’hui “un modèle d’action des perturbateurs endocriniens”, alors que le composé chimique polémique, le Bisphénol A, est également considéré comme un perturbateur endocrinien.

Baidu lance un service de musique en ligne Le géant chinois de l’Internet a annoncé le lancement d’un service de musique en ligne en partenariat avec Universal Music, Warner Music et Sony Music.C’est la fin d’un long bras de fer entre Baidu, qui capte 75,9% des recherches des internautes chinois, et les trois majors de la musique : Universal Music, Warner Music et Sony Music. Ceux-ci avaient en effet engagé des poursuites contre la firme chinoise pour au moins 63,5 millions de yuans (9,8 millions de dollars) pour violation de leurs droits de propriété intellectuelle en février 2008. Déboutées par la justice chinoise, les majors ont changé de stratégie et passé un accord avec le moteur de recherche Baidu qui a abouti à la création de One-Stop China.Cette co-entreprise va mettre à disposition des internautes chinois utilisant Baidu les catalogues des trois majors en streaming ou en téléchargement, explique ainsi l’AFP. En contrepartie, Baidu versera une redevance à ses partenaires pour tout morceau écouté ou téléchargé, que ce soit via son service de recherche de fichiers MP3 ou via sa plateforme ting!. Un bon accord pour ces maisons de disques qui vont profiter de l’expansion du web en Chine qui comptait fin juin près de 485 millions d’internautes. Le 20 juillet 2011 à 15:07 • Maxime Lambert
Ranger manager Steven Gerrard has lauded the additions of Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis to his squad this January.Defoe is on an 18-month loan from Bournemouth, while Davis has returned to Rangers from Southampton on an initial six-month loan subject to international clearance.Defoe made his intention for the club this season known via Twitter where he tweeted: ‘Let’s bring that trophy home boss.’Gerrard who played with Defoe in the national team told Daily Mail:Owen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“He is an exceptionally talented striker and vastly experienced footballer who has scored goals at every club he has played for.“He will be a great addition to our dressing room and we look forward to integrating him into the squad whilst we work in Tenerife over the next week.”Steven Gerrard’s Rangers are hoping to lift the Scottish Premier League this season after a long period of dominance by defending Champions Celtic.

By: Emily McFarlan Miller emmillerwrites Catholicism News Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,Two decades after her anti-death penalty work was transformed into an Oscar-winning movie, “Dead Man Walking,” Sister Helen Prejean’s campaign continues with the backing of Pope Francis. RNS photo by Rosie Scammell(RNS) — Sister Helen Prejean wants to get religion “right.”But too often, she said, people use religion, including Christianity, for the wrong reasons.That includes Scripture used by politicians to justify separating families at the border, said Prejean, 80. Or Jesus’ death being used by Christians to defend the death penalty.Or thinking that praying for justice is the same as acting for it.“It took me a long time to get Jesus right,” she said.“It took me a long time to not just live Christianity as practicing charity to those around me who were pretty much people just like me, to getting involved with justice, which is the true call of the gospel.”That desire to get it right prompted Prejean — an anti-death penalty activist whose book “Dead Man Walking” was the inspiration for the Oscar-winning 1995 film by the same name — to write her latest memoir, “River of Fire.”In the new book, which ends where “Dead Man Walking” picks up, the sister describes her journey to the Sisters of St. Joseph — and how religious life changed after Vatican II.Prejean talked to Religion News Service about how she became involved in social justice, why she thinks the death penalty is on its way out and how she got to “bump into two popes along the way.”This interview has been edited for length and clarity.You’ve been part of the social justice movement for a long time. How did you get involved?I basically would pray to God to solve the big problems, but I was never engaged directly in social justice. And so I tell in the book about awakening, being jolted out of that. The line that got me was, “Jesus preached good news to the poor.”“River of Fire: My Spiritual Journey” by Sister Helen Prejean. Cover courtesy of Random HouseThe good news to poor people was that it wasn’t God’s will for them to be poor. That they had a right to strive for what was rightfully theirs and to have a decent life. In other words, poverty had to be resisted, not just something accepted because God’s going to reward you in another life. You have to work for justice.When I heard that, I didn’t even know any poor people, and I lived in New Orleans. We had 10 major housing projects for poor black people, and I’d never been to any of them. I was always in the suburbs with other white people like me. God helped wake me up (and realize) that the gospel was about being on the side with people who had no voice, anyone marginalized and who was struggling.Then I began to learn. I realized that to work for justice, you can’t just pray for God to solve these problems, you’ve got to get involved.So to get an invitation to write a man on death row kind of just fit in.Capital punishment has been back in the news with Attorney General William Barr reinstating the federal death penalty. But you’re actually hopeful about ending the death penalty. Why?Pope Francis on Aug. 2, 2018, made a declaration that we’re changing the Catholic catechism that under no circumstance could we ever allow state governments to execute their citizens.The work still needs to be done. So now you’ve got a document. Now you’ve got words on a page. You’ve still got to bring words to life.What happens in countries or states is first you see the practice dwindling because people are losing faith in it. You see that happening across the whole country.It’s still on the way. It’s still kind of budding. But it’s definitely in the right direction, and so that just takes constant dialogue. That’s why I’m glad about “Dead Man Walking,” and that’s why I’m glad about the movie, why I’m glad about the opera, why I stay on the road to talk to the people.In the book, you also include a letter you wrote to Pope Francis advocating for the role of women in the church. Why is this so important to you?The death penalty — OK, we’re on the right path. We’re getting that straight, but there’s a huge, huge, huge injustice in the Catholic Church.Here all around us we see women coming into their own. Here we have the U.N. saying that when you educate the women and bring the women up, that is what raises a society. Here we have the #MeToo movement. Here we have women striving for their rights to be able to vote and to be able to have a voice, women taking their place in Congress and decision-making.In the church, a woman cannot read the Gospel at Mass. Only a man can. Women are not part of any of the policymaking at the highest level of the church. And I say in that letter to the pope, we have all males, always all males, making decisions, and they don’t have the voice and experience and wisdom of women across that table with them.We need the wisdom of women in policymaking and decision-making in the Catholic Church. Eventually it will be the priesthood, too.How do you hold on to joy and faith in the face of the death and injustice you’ve seen?That comes from the Holy Spirit. It’s not something I create and just hold on to. It bubbles up in you. It becomes present in you.And I think it comes from walking out of that execution chamber after witnessing six human beings die.I am working with every bit of strength in my body to change that, to wake up the people. What gives you hope is when you’re working for something. When you’re working on the alternative, you’re not just wishing for it. You’re not just lamenting what is wrong. You’re working. You are at work all the time, and then the hope flows through you. And I think that’s where the joy comes from.I mean, there is tremendous grief. Oh my God. I mean, witnessing people being executed — to see it! You meet them, and they’re human beings, and they’re more than the worst act of their life.Did you ever expect you’d be doing what you do or have a movie made about your work?There is a principle of the spiritual life: You do what you do because of the integrity of it, because of what you see, and not for the fruit of it. You leave the fruit of your actions up to God. So, of course, I never knew all this was going to happen, and it took me awhile to wake up. Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email
Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who adventures end when “The Doctor Falls” on July 1 (save for his real finale in the Christmas special).But the 12th Doctor will live on in Titan Comics’ upcoming series “The Lost Dimension,” launching Aug. 30.The “epic event”—eight chapters dropping over three months—features all four revival Doctors playing their part to battle the Void.“The Void has always existed: ‘No place. The silent realm. The lost dimension.’ But the Void is no longer empty,” Titan explained in a press release. “The Void is hungry, and devouring our universe—through time and space. Now, the four Doctors must join forces to save… everything!”“The Lost Dimension” kicks off this fall with the “super-accessible” Alpha issue from George Mann and Cavan Scott, with art by Rachael Stott and Rod Fernandes.Ninth Doctor special covers (via Titan Comics)The “thrilling” story continues with a Ninth Doctor special, set for release in conjunction with Doctor Who Comics Day, a global celebration held on Saturday, Sept. 2.Inspired by Titan’s line of Who books, this year’s event is set to be “bigger than ever before,” with new comics and collections, merchandise, variant covers, signings, and affairs at retailers and libraries around the world.Last year’s festivities were tied in with the release of Scott and Mann’s Supremacy of the Cybermen comic mini-series—in honor of the classic villain’s 50th anniversary.Go online to sign up your bookshop or library, or to register for a kit to host your own reading group event on Doctor Who Comics Day. And keep an eye out for more details about this year’s event.Check out Mann’s work in the latest Twelfth Doctor story, “Beneath the Waves: Part 2,” in which the Doctor and companion Hattie must fend off attacking seaweed “shamblers.” Scott, meanwhile, wrapped up the Ninth Doctor’s “Arkham Asylum in Space” story last month with “Sin Eaters: Part Two.”And, get your live-action Doctor Who fix every Saturday on BBC America. The 12-episode arc marks the end for stars Peter Capaldi and Michelle Gomez (Missy the Master), as well as showrunner Steven Moffat, who will depart the sci-fi favorite late this year.

Citation: Scientists find first evidence that many universes exist (2010, December 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-12-scientists-evidence-universes.html (PhysOrg.com) — By looking far out into space and observing what’s going on there, scientists have been led to theorize that it all started with a Big Bang, immediately followed by a brief period of super-accelerated expansion called inflation. Perhaps this was the beginning of everything, but lately a few scientists have been wondering if something could have come before that, setting up the initial conditions for the birth of our universe. More information: Stephen M. Feeney, Matthew C. Johnson, Daniel J. Mortlock, and Hiranya V. Peiris. “First Observational Tests of Eternal Inflation.” arXiv:1012.1995v1 [astro-ph.CO]via: The Physics arXiv Blog Scientists glimpse universe before the Big Bang The signatures of a bubble collision: A collision (top left) induces a temperature modulation in the CMB temperature map (top right). The “blob” associated with the collision is identified by a large needlet response (bottom left), and the presence of an edge is determined by a large response from the edge detection algorithm (bottom right). Image credit: Feeney, et al. Explore further © 2010 PhysOrg.com In the most recent study on pre-Big Bang science posted at arXiv.org, a team of researchers from the UK, Canada, and the US, Stephen M. Feeney, et al, have revealed that they have discovered four statistically unlikely circular patterns in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The researchers think that these marks could be “bruises” that our universe has incurred from being bumped four times by other universes. If they turn out to be correct, it would be the first evidence that universes other than ours do exist.The idea that there are many other universes out there is not new, as scientists have previously suggested that we live in a “multiverse” consisting of an infinite number of universes. The multiverse concept stems from the idea of eternal inflation, in which the inflationary period that our universe went through right after the Big Bang was just one of many inflationary periods that different parts of space were and are still undergoing. When one part of space undergoes one of these dramatic growth spurts, it balloons into its own universe with its own physical properties. As its name suggests, eternal inflation occurs an infinite number of times, creating an infinite number of universes, resulting in the multiverse.These infinite universes are sometimes called bubble universes even though they are irregular-shaped, not round. The bubble universes can move around and occasionally collide with other bubble universes. As Feeney, et al., explain in their paper, these collisions produce inhomogeneities in the inner-bubble cosmology, which could appear in the CMB. The scientists developed an algorithm to search for bubble collisions in the CMB with specific properties, which led them to find the four circular patterns.Still, the scientists acknowledge that it is rather easy to find a variety of statistically unlikely properties in a large dataset like the CMB. The researchers emphasize that more work is needed to confirm this claim, which could come in short time from the Planck satellite, which has a resolution three times better than that of WMAP (where the current data comes from), as well as an order of magnitude greater sensitivity. Nevertheless, they hope that the search for bubble collisions could provide some insight into the history of our universe, whether or not the collisions turn out to be real. “The conclusive non-detection of a bubble collision can be used to place stringent limits on theories giving rise to eternal inflation; however, if a bubble collision is verified by future data, then we will gain an insight not only into our own universe but a multiverse beyond,” the researchers write in their study.This is the second study in the past month that has used CMB data to search for what could have occurred before the Big Bang. In the first study, Roger Penrose and Vahe Gurzadyan found concentric circles with lower-than-average temperature variation in the CMB, which could be evidence for a cyclic cosmology in which Big Bangs occur over and over.

The Clínica Bíblica Hospital celebrated its 85th anniversary Thursday night with a spectacular presentation from the Costa Rican Philharmonic Orchestra at the Melico Salazar Theater in San José. The orchestra played songs from its recent show “Somos Latinos, ” and had the audience rising out of their seats to dance.“At its 85th anniversary, the hospital is looking more like a ‘quinceañera’ – vital and growing, but stable and smart,” said Jaime Cabezas, president of the hospital’s board of directors.

The state gas company (Defa) said Tuesday it will be inviting tenders next month for the supply of liquified natural gas for power generation.Defa chairman Symeon Kassianides also told the House commerce committee that it will be issuing a call for bids for the necessary infrastructure.The new effort aims at having the fuel by January 2020 to avoid emissions fines.The two contracts will be separate, Kassianides said.The Defa chairman said a floating unit to store and deliquefy the fuel will cost some €250m of which 40 per cent, or €101m, will come from the EU.The European Investment Bank has expressed interest to participate in the project while the island’s state-owned electricity company (EAC) will also hold 30 per cent.“We are talking about two separate contracts, one being the supply of natural gas and the infrastructure the other,” Kassianides said. “The fact that the two projects were together was one of the reasons we failed to succeed so far.”He said the timeframe was tight but suppliers suggested the projects can be realized within that time.EAC chairman Andreas Marangos said the company was preparing for the worse case scenario of not having natural gas in time.Marangos said it is ready to apply anti-pollution technology like desulphurisation at a cost of between €30m to €40m.Defa is tasked with reaching an agreement with a supplier for the so-called ‘interim solution’ to replace oil as the EAC’s power-generation fuel with imported gas at a lower cost.The interim solution calls for the importation of natural gas to facilitate cheaper power production as a stopgap until local resources become available.You May LikeFood Eat Safe9 Foods That Are Good For Your HeartFood Eat SafeUndoNew ArenaExperts Agree, He’s The Best HR Hitter In The MLBNew ArenaUndoLives Famous20 Most Dangerous Bridges in the WorldLives FamousUndo The Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoGreece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoBrazil prison riot kills 52, with 16 decapitatedUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
New legislation introduced by state Rep. John Bizon would hold an individual who is responsible for the care of a minor child accountable if they fail to report that child as missing or dead within 48 hours.“Protecting our most vulnerable residents is of utmost importance,” said Rep. Bizon, R-Battle Creek. “If you’re responsible for the care and well-being of a child, you must be held accountable to ensure that child isn’t endangered. These bills ensure that happens.”Under the legislation, the penalty for not reporting a child who has gone missing or died is up to four years in prison, a $5,000 fine or both. Rep. Bizon said the bills will provide a greater incentive for someone who is trusted with the care of a minor child to do the right thing or face a stiff penalty for failing to act.“These bills are about ensuring those who are trusted to care for Michigan’s children do so,” Rep. Bizon said. “Protecting our children will help our state have a brighter future for everyone.”House Bills 4688 and 4689 have been referred to the House Committee on Criminal Justice.### 09Jun Rep.

Roger Victory, R-Hudsonville, welcomed Bauer Elementary student Nicholas Gunnik to the state capital to take part in the “Rep. for a Day” event on Sept. 29.Bauer Elementary student Nicholas Gunnik, left, spent the day in the state capitol building with Rep. Roger Victory during the ‘Rep. for a Day’ event.Among the highlights for the students was a swearing-in ceremony on the House floor, a tour of the Capitol building and participation in a mock committee hearing.“We presented an (mock) amendment to declare the favorite state dessert to be pie with ice cream,” Nicholas said. “It was a good committee. There have been a lot of new things to learn.”Students and parents from across the state came to learn about the legislative process and take part in the daily activities of a state representative. Selection was based on a summer reading contest, where students submitted special bookmarks to lawmaker offices and local libraries.“This has been a great event and privilege,” Rep. Victory said. “Reading is so important, and it is vital for students to continue to develop their reading and educational skills year around.”During the summer program, Nicholas read 10 different books. Visiting the Capitol was a great way to end the program, he said.“It was really cool,” Nicholas said. “I got to see how everything works. It’s a different type of thing to learn.”
