Kevin Ryan believes the ground is turning in The Grey Gatsby’s favour as he prepares his dual Group One winner for the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh on Sunday. “I wouldn’t even worry about good to soft. What he doesn’t want is very soft ground. “Hopefully the ground will come for him.” Ryan is convinced what helps make The Grey Gatsby stand out is that he thrives on travelling. “He’s a very simple horse to deal with and always has been. He does exactly what you want him to do,” the North Yorkshire trainer told At The Races. “He’s great in the mornings and he’s a good traveller as well. “He seems to enjoy going away from home and he relaxes when he goes to the racecourse.” The going at the Curragh was described on Thursday morning as good to yielding and the forecast is for dry weather through the weekend. “I think the ground is coming in his favour now and it could be good on Sunday, which would be ideal,” said Ryan.

Powered by Firework Liverpool FC has been blooming under Jürgen Klopp. Lifting the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League trophy, and already 8 points ahead of second place Leicester City in the EPL table- the Reds are reclaiming their glory. Their star Sadio Mané is an undisputed benefactor in the club, and the winger has shown applaudable altruism that will touch your heart.Advertisement Image Courtesy: liverpoolfc.com/Twitter(@SaddickAdams)Sports Journalist Saddick Adams posted a video on his Twitter where the Senegalese international was seen lending a helping hand to a kitman. Check out the clip below-Mané, who is presently out on international duty for Senegal in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, was caught on camera assisting a team staff to carry water bottles from the team bus. The 27 year old got off from the bus and casually picked up packages of bottles packets and took them inside. Very generous gesture.This is not the first time the Reds attacker showed his humble nature, and it won’t surely be the last. Back in 2018, he was seen cleaning the toilets at a local Mosque. He also made a donation $280,000 to help build a modern two storey secondary school in Bambaly, his mother’s hometown, in Senegal.The former Red Bull Salzburg and Southampton arrived at Anfield in 2016, and has become an integral part of Klopp’s star studded lineup, netting in 52 goals and completing 24 successful assists.

McCarthy decided it was time to make the jump to Tier I Junior A.The loss of McCarthy was not the only bad news Nelson received.Nelson lost the services of Matthew Naka who suffered a broken ankle in a freak off-ice accident.The loss of two key cogs in the Nelson roster, combined with a 6-1 shellacking the Leafs received at the hands of the Castlegar Rebels prior to the Christmas Break, may have been the final push for Maida to make the lineup move.Gross is expected to be in the Nelson lineup when the Green and White return to ice for the unofficial second half of the season starting Friday at home against the Spokane Braves.Game time is 7 p.m.Saturday Nelson travels to the Lilac City for a return half of the home-and-home series.Monday, Nelson hosts Beaver Valley Nitehawks in the traditional New Years Eve clash at the NDCC Arena.Game time is 2:30 p.m.Nelson currently leads the Murdoch Division by a slim two points over Castlegar and holds a six-point advantage over the surging Beaver Valley Nitehawks. Nelson Leafs coach Frank Maida made a move Boxing Day to deal with the loss of two key players from the lineup in the final weeks leading up to the Kootenay International Junior HocChristmas break.Maida, in his second season at the helm of the Leafs, acquired 18-year-old Connor Gross from the Grand Forks Border Bruins for future considerations.”(Center) Colton McCarthy leaving (to WHL) created a spot and Connor brings offence to fill that loss,” Maida told The Nelson Daily Wednesday.Gross, from Lethbridge, Alta., has scored 18 goals while adding 17 assists for the lowly Bruins in 35 games this season and is currently on six-game point streak.During that recent hot streak, Grossm who leads the Border Bruins in scoring, has scored five goals for 11 points.Of course the Leafs are still reeling from the loss of McCarthy, who as a 16-year-old was a shoe-in for the KIJHL rookie of the year award.The Salmon Arm prospect was tearing up the league in scoring 21 times in 26 games before departing for Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League earlier this month.

31 July 2012 The focus of 2012 National Science Week is on South Africa’s move towards a “knowledge economy”, Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor said at the launch of the week at the University of Johannesburg’s Soweto campus on Monday. Also at the launch was the German Ambassador to South Africa, Dr Horst Freitag; Swiss Ambassador to South Africa, Christian Meuwly; the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Ihron Rensburg; and about 6 000 learners from schools in Gauteng. Running from 30 July to 4 August under the theme “The Role of Science & Technology in Economic Development”, National Science Week confirms the department’s contribution to the gradual transformation of South Africa’s resource-based economy to a knowledge economy, Pandor said. “It’s no doubt that science and technology have changed the world tremendously and countries that excel in the sector become powerful players in the economy of the world,” she said. “The onus is therefore on every country to establish how it wants to positions itself. Recent developments, such as the bid to host the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), as well as the collaboration with the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) generated a worldwide interest in science and the possibilities it offers for humanity.” She believed South Africa and its other eight African partner countries, who will host the majority of the SKA dishes, will soon get to a place where they can provide answers about the early history of the universe, dark matter and gravity.Science as an enabler of economic development Rensburg said science and technology were the differentiators between countries that were able to tackle poverty effectively by growing and developing the economy, and those that were not. “The extent to which developing economies emerge as economic powerhouses depends on their ability to grasp and apply insights from science and technology and use them creatively. Innovation is the primary driver of technological growth and living standards,” he said. Rensburg said the university was proud to partner with the Department of Science and Technology in this regard. “In biomedical engineering, we have developed advanced image processing techniques to better diagnose tuberculosis.” He said UJ engineers had also developed advanced artificial intelligence techniques that used microarray data for diagnosis of leukaemia, as well as a rapid prototyping infrastructure used in the design and manufacture of an operational aircraft engine for Adept Technology. “Our Laser Research Centre is leading efforts to investigate the field of phototherapy with specific emphasis on Low Intensity Laser Irradiation as applied to diabetic wound healing, Photodynamic Therapy used as a therapeutic modality for cancer and the augmentation of stem cells as applied to regenerative medicine,” he said. National Science Week 2012 celebrations will be conducted in collaboration with higher education institutions and science councils countrywide. For those wishing to participate in the activities, information is available on the department’s Facebook page or they can follow @ScienceWeekSA on Twitter using the hashtag #NSW2012.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Gene editing has been a much sought after and controversial technology. Last month, part of the World Health Organization called for an international registry to track all research into editing the human genome.Purdue University researchers have developed a new technology that could change how gene editing is approached. NgAgo is programmed with guide DNA (red) to cut DNA (purple) at specific regions, enabling precise genetic modifications. (Image provided)Purdue University researchers, including one who was inspired by the cancer death of a close friend, have developed a new technology that could change how gene editing is approached in the future. The research team presents the work on April 4 at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Orlando.One of the most widely used methods for gene editing is CRISPR-Cas9 technology. The method requires a certain sequence or motif for function that restricts modifications.“CRISPR can be programmed to cut DNA at specific regions to make precise edits in an organism that can increase sustainable manufacturing, treat disease and even create better crops,” said Kevin Solomon, an assistant professor of agricultural and biological engineering, who leads the Purdue research team. “However, it requires a certain sequence for function that restricts modifications to certain regions.”Many diseases in humans, including several types of cancer, are caused by mutations at specific sites in the genome. The Purdue team created a method that uses the protein Argonaute from Natronobacterium gregoryi (NgAgo) and supplied DNA as a guide to enable modification anywhere on the genome, providing new options to potentially improve manufacturing, disease treatment, drug discovery and crop production.“While there is still work to do, we have shown that these molecular scissors can edit regions of DNA previously inaccessible by current technologies,” said 2nd Lt. Michael Mechikoff, a master’s student working on the project.“One of my best friends died from a cancer caused by a genetic variant several years ago,” said Kok Zhi Lee, a doctoral student who works on the research team in Solomon’s lab. “I always dreamed of a different scenario for my friend — living in an era where genetic engineering is a regular and safe option to correct genetic disorders. With the potential of our technology, I anticipate a future where genetic disease is history for human beings.”The team has worked with the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization to file a utility patent on the technology. They are looking for partners and others interested in developing and licensing it.

We can’t afford to lose any points.”Sassuolo have players with good technical ability going forward, and with the signing of [Khouma] Babacar they’ve added physicality. They drew with Roma and beat Inter so this is a match that we have to start on the front foot.”
