Bedlam Bertie has Sensational run to victory

first_imgBedlam Bertie returned $7 for the victory and has earned slightly more than $190,000. The Santa Anita jockeys will face the seventh and eighth graders of Holy Angels School in a charity basketball game this Thursday evening at La Salle High School (3880 E. Sierra Madre Blvd.) in Pasadena. Tip-off is 7:15 p.m. and tickets are $5 at the door. Attima, a winner four times in the United States since arriving from France last year, is the 5-2 favorite for this afternoon’s $150,000 Buena Vista Handicap for fillies and mares at one mile on turf. Santa Anita’s leading jockey Garrett Gomez rode one race on Saturday, then took off his remaining mounts. He also took off his eight rides on Sunday due to a lingering flu-like illness. ARCADIA – Bedlam Bertie, lightly raced with only a dozen career starts on his resume, dominated his five rivals in Sunday’s $134,375 Sensational Star Handicap, winning by a comfortable 2 3/4 lengths in 1:13 for the 6 1/2 furlongs on the downhill turf course. Ridden by jockey David Flores, Bedlam Bertie immediately took the lead over 8-5 favorite Epic Power, then increased his advantage to nearly three lengths entering the stretch. Rags To Riches, the impressive come-from-behind winner of the Las Virgenes Stakes earlier this month, is being pointed to the $300,000 Santa Anita Oaks (March 11), according to Michael McCarthy, assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Greater Manchester Police respond after Mourinho blames them for kick off delay

first_img“But it was not a problem with the club organisation, we tried everything, we anticipate everything the fact that it could be dangerous – dangerous in the sense of arriving late – but we were informed the police refused an escort.”In response, a statement from GMP said: “All police deployments are carried out following a comprehensive risk assessment process and, specifically in respect of escort team buses, are only ever undertaken on occasions when there is intelligence or information to suggest a risk of threat or harm to the players.“GMP has previously used police vehicles to accompany a team’s coach but after a review of our core policing responsibilities it was decided that we would no longer provide this service at every fixture.” Mourinho said Greater Manchester Police ‘refused’ to send a fleet of vehicles to escort the team bus to Old Trafford 2 The Reds boss said the lack of a police escort led to their journey from the Lowry Hotel taking 45 minutes longer than usual.But GMP have explained they will no longer provide an escort for every fixture after ‘reviewing their responsibilities’ surrounding games at Old Trafford.MORE: Paul Scholes launches scathing attack on Mourinho – ‘He’s embarrassing the club’Asked about their delay following the 0-0 draw, Mourinho said during a press conference: “We left the hotel at six o’clock hoping that 30 minutes would be enough, which normally it is.“But this time the police refused to do an escort, so we come by ourselves and we took from the Lowry hotel 75 minutes.“UEFA were nice, the referee was nice to allow us to start the game five minutes later because at least we need half an hour to be prepared. 2 Mourinho took aim at the police following Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Valencia – United’s fourth game without victory Greater Manchester Police have responded to Jose Mourinho’s claims that Manchester United were ‘refused’ a police escort for their journey from the team hotel to Old Trafford on Tuesday night.Mourinho blamed the police after United arrived late for their Champions League group game at home to Valencia, which forced kick-off to be delayed by five minutes.last_img read more

STUPID RED TAPE COSTING DONEGAL FISH FARM JOBS – PAT THE COPE

first_imgPat the Cope Gallagher.MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has welcomed the publication of a new report by the Irish Farmers Association entitled “Removing Barriers to Irish Aquaculture Development.”The report highlights the severe bureaucracy and red tape affecting the fish farming sector in Ireland.The findings of the report notes that the delays are preventing up to 2,000 new jobs and 60 million euro in lost investment in peripheral and coastal areas throughout Ireland. The Donegal politician insisted: “It is totally unacceptable that up to 600 applications for fish farming licences have been in the system for up to seven years. On several occasions over the past five years in the European Parliament, I have strongly called for the establishment of a one-stop shop in Ireland to deal with the approval of licences, drawing on best practice in other countries such as Scotland.”Mr Gallagher noted that at a European level, “the European Parliament and the European Commission fully supports the development of sustainable aquaculture and the new Common Fisheries Policy includes several supporting measures. However, Irish regulators appear to be incapable of getting past the inertia, which began with their inability to deal with the Habitats Directive and continues still to hamper job and export creation in peripheral and coastal areas.”Mr Gallagher continued “It is quite obvious to everyone that a valuable opportunity is being lost here, particularly for our coastal communities, where often there is no source of alternative employment. I can understand the huge frustration of businessmen and women trying to keep their coastal communities alive by making a living from the sea in an industry recognised for its quality and professionalism. We need to create an atmosphere conducive to job creation, not an atmosphere that prevents employment.“Without these SMEs our villages and towns along the periphery would disappear. It is assistance, not obstacles, we urgently require and the IFA’s report once again highlights that urgent action is needed by the Government to resolve the delays affecting the fish farming sector”.  STUPID RED TAPE COSTING DONEGAL FISH FARM JOBS – PAT THE COPE was last modified: March 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:fish farmsIFAMEPPat The Cope Gallagherred tapelast_img read more

Plea in SC against media gag on Muzaffarpur case

first_imgA petition was filed on Wednesday in the Supreme Court challenging a Patna High Court order restraining the media from reporting the investigation into the case of Muzaffarpur shelter home where several women were allegedly raped and sexually abused.The plea, which has sought a stay on the operation of the High Court’s August 23 order, has alleged that the order was “patently erroneous” as it amounted to imposing a “blanket ban” on the media reporting in the case.In the plea filed before the apex court, the petitioner, a journalist, has claimed that there was no material before the High Court to come to a conclusion that the media reporting may hamper the ongoing investigation in the case. The petitioner has also said that it was because of the proactive role of the media that the “shocking incident” was exposed.last_img read more

Sleep: The Ultimate Brainwasher?

first_imgEvery night since humans first evolved, we have made what might be considered a baffling, dangerous mistake. Despite the once-prevalent threat of being eaten by predators, and the loss of valuable time for gathering food, accumulating wealth, or having sex, we go to sleep. Scientists have long speculated and argued about why we devote roughly a third of our lives to sleep, but with little concrete data to support any particular theory. Now, new evidence has refreshed a long-held hypothesis: During sleep, the brain cleans itself.Most physiologists agree that sleep has come to serve many different purposes, ranging from memory consolidation to the regulation of metabolism and the immune system. While the “core” purposes of biological functions such as breathing and eating are easy to understand, however, scientists have never agreed on any such original purpose for sleeping. The new study, by Maiken Nedergaard and colleagues at the University of Rochester in New York, provides what Charles Czeisler, a sleep researcher at Harvard Medical School in Boston, calls the “first direct experimental evidence at the molecular level” for what could be sleep’s basic purpose: It clears the brain of toxic metabolic byproducts.The new work, published online today in Science, “fits with a long-standing view that sleep is for recovery—that something is paid back or cleaned out,” says David Dinges, a sleep researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. It builds on Nedergaard’s recent discovery, described last summer in Science Translational Medicine, of a network of microscopic, fluid-filled channels that clears toxins from the brain, much as the lymphatic system clears out metabolic waste products from the rest of the body. Instead of carrying lymph, this system transports waste-laden cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Before the discovery of this “glymphatic system,” as Nedergaard has dubbed it, the brain’s only known method for disposing of cellular trash was to break down and recycle it within individual cells, she says.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(*)In the original work, Nedergaard’s group showed that glia, the brain’s non-neuronal cells, control the flow of CSF through channels in their cell membranes. “If we delete the channels in glial cells, the flow almost stops,” Nedergaard says. Because the transport of fluid across cell membranes requires a lot of energy, Nedergaard and her team had a hunch that the brain would not be able to both clean and process sensory information at the same time and decided to test whether the activity of the glymphatic system changed during sleep. Lulu Xie, the new study’s first author, spent the next 2 years training mice to relax and fall asleep on a two-photon microscope, which can image the movement of dye through living tissue.Once Xie was sure the mice were asleep, based on their EEG brain activity, she injected a green dye into their CSF through a catheterlike device in their necks. After half an hour, she awakened them by touching their tails and injected a red dye that the two-photon microscope could easily distinguish from the green. By tracking the movements of red and green dye throughout the brain, the team found that large amounts of CSF flowed into the brain during sleep, but not during the awake state, Nedergaard says.A comparison of the volume of space between nerve cells while the mice were awake and asleep revealed that the glial channels carrying CSF expanded by 60% when the mice were asleep. The team also injected labeled β amyloid proteins into the brains of sleeping mice and awake mice and found that during sleep, CSF cleared away this “dirt” outside of the cells twice as quickly—”like a dishwasher,” Nedergaard says. Such proteins can aggregate as pathogenic plaques inside cells and are associated with Alzheimer’s disease, she says.Many neurological diseases—from Alzheimer’s disease to stroke and dementia—are associated with sleep disturbances, Nedergaard notes. The study suggests that lack of sleep could have a causal role, by allowing the byproducts to build up and cause brain damage. “This could open a lot of debate for shift workers, who work during the nighttime,” Nedergaard predicts. “You probably develop damage if you don’t get your sleep.”One unknown, however, is whether the need to remove waste products actively regulates sleep—whether, for example, the buildup of metabolic byproducts makes us sleepy. Researchers also wonder how the fluid-filled channels change shape during sleep, and whether clearing waste actually improves the function of neurons.Nor are other researchers certain that cleansing is sleep’s sole core function. No one function of sleep necessarily rules them all, says sleep scientist Derk-Jan Dijk of the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom. “Sleep probably has many functions,” he says, just as the weekend is variously for shopping, socializing, and cleaning the house.But now that Nedergaard and her colleagues have identified this nightly brainwashing in mice, Czeisler says, scientists can investigate whether it occurs in all species, and to what extent. “One could imagine that different species have evolved different additional functions of sleep to suit their different habitats, … but this will help resolve if there is some shared function of sleep across species,” he concludes.last_img read more

IPL 2017: Sunrisers Hyderabad look to arrest slide against Kings XI Punjab

first_imgBack-to-back losses denting their confidence, defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad would look to put their campaign back on track when they take on Kings XI Punjab in their Indian Premier League match in Hyderabad on Monday. (More IPL News)The Sunrisers had a perfect start this season by winning their first two games — against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Lions — at home. However, they lost their next two matches away from home — against Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders.On Monday, it would be an opportunity for SRH to bounce back on their home turf. The team possessed one of the best bowling attacks in IPL 10 with the likes of pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan, the experienced Ashish Nehra, Ben Cutting, Bangladesh’s Mustafizzur Rahman and all-rounders Yuvraj Singh and Moises Henriques in their ranks. (Ashish Nehra blames SRH batsmen for loss against KKR)Bhuvneshwar has been outstanding, especially in death overs, and the young Rashid has emerged as a crucial bowler for the side with his unique leg-spin bowling.The other bowlers, including Ashish Nehra, Ben Cutting and Rahman, can put any batsmen to test. Bangladeshi pacer Rahman, who conceded 19 runs from his first over to return with poor figures of 2.4-0-34-0 against Mumbai, would be keen to make amends and demonstrate his capabilities.SRH openers David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have been giving good starts to their innings but the other batsmen, especially those who batted at the middle order, would want to do well by raising the bar.advertisementThe middle order, comprising Moises Henriques, seasoned Yuvraj Singh and Deepak Hooda, did put up a strong show to see their side romp home in the first two matches.On the points table, both SRH and KXIP have four points each from an equal number of matches.The Punjab side has also won their first two matches and lost the next two, much like SRH, and they too would aim to get their momentum back. (IPL 2017: Maxwell irritated at ‘shit’ question, storms out of press conference)The visiting side have some dangerous batsmen, especially the three Ms — David Miller, Glenn Maxwell and Eoin Morgan — who can pile up runs. (We failed in all three facets of the game, rues Kings XI Punjab captain Glenn Maxwell)Their bowling unit includes the reliable Mohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma who is familiar with the conditions in Hyderabad as he played for SRH and also Deccan Chargers earlier.Teams:Kings XI Punjab: Glenn Maxwell (capt), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Armaan Jaffer, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Arman Jaffer, Anureet Singh, Mohit Sharma, KC Cariappa, Pradeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, T Natrajan, Matt Henry, Varun Aaron, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Gurkeerat Mann, Rahul Tewatia, Darren Sammy, Wriddhiman Saha, Nikhil Naik, Ishant Sharma.Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (capt), Tanmay Agarwal, Ricky Bhui, Bipul Sharma, Ben Cutting, Shikhar Dhawan, Eklavya Dwivedi, Moises Henriques, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, Siddharth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ben Laughlin, Abhimanyu Mithun, Mohammad Nabi, Mohammed Siraj, Mustafizur Rahman, Ashish Nehra, Naman Ojha (wk), Rashid Khan, Vijay Shankar, Barinder Sran, Pravin Tambe, Kane Williamson and Yuvraj Singh.last_img read more
