Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde hailed Lionel Messi’s competitive spirit as his finest assetSince debuting against Jose Mourinho’s FC Porto in November 2003, Messi has become regarded as one of the greatest of all time with five Ballon d’Ors and a record 573 goals in 657 games for Barcelona.Aside from that, Messi has also won 32 titles at Camp Nou and is still going strong at the age of 31 with a league-best of 15 goals and 10 assists in just 15 games in La Liga.The Argentine forward was named as Barcelona captain at the start of this season following Andres Iniesta’s departure and appears to have settled into the role well.Match Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).“What I’d most highlight about Leo Messi is his huge sense of responsibility for the team. It shows in every game in every competition,” Valverde told BarcaTV.“What he does is not only difficult, but he does it again and again … That takes enormous mental strength.“I have never known anyone with such an amazing competitive spirit.”Messi and Barcelona will return to action on Sunday away to Getafe in La Liga where they will hope to collect a win and maintain their three-point lead over second-place Atletico Madrid.

Share Photo by Khalil AbuSharekhRobert Steven Kaplan, president & CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.Economic growth has been slowing down for three straight quarters. Robert Kaplan, the president and CEO of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank came to Houston this week to speak to the World Affairs Council with critical reasons for why the economy has slowed, while offering controversial solutions.“The Federal Reserve has two primary goals. Full employment, and keeping inflation below two percent,” said Kaplan, who heads the 11th Federal Reserve District, which includes all of Texas. With first quarter 2016 GDP growth at just 1.1%, Kaplan believes there are a number of reasons for a slow economy. Among them, what he calls disruptive innovation.“The telephone was a disruptive innovation. But I’m talking about in every single industry there is a disruptive threat, that is going to change the entire model,” says Kaplan.Kaplan sites companies like Amazon, and Uber and Airbnb. They change retail markets, but hurt the buying power of other businesses keeping them from investing in growth.As for how to fix the economy, the local Fed president offers a couple of solutions.Kaplan believes we need a political climate of compromise instead of polarization to energize the economy.“If you believe the population is aging, and it is, we can do some things about that. We could have immigration reform in the United States so that people come here legally and we can continue to grow the workforce,” Kaplan stated.He is also calling for major investment in education outside the traditional college setting.“All of us in this room are more likely to get fired, thrown out of work, having to re-position ourselves to get a new job in a new industry. We need vocational training,” he added.Locally, the former Senior Associate Dean at Harvard Business School thinks the overall economic outlook is promising.He concedes that there is good news and bad news for the energy sector: “The good news: we believe prices will continue to firm. And in the years ahead, ’17, ’18, ’19 we think they will even further continue to firm.”“The bad news is there are still many fields in the United States and in the Permian (Basin) and other fields, which are still not economic at $45 or $50 (for a barrel of oil), it would take higher prices. And there are also a number of companies that are highly leveraged and are not going to be able to make it through, without bankruptcy or restructuring,” Kaplan says. So while the energy sector may continue to struggle, he is confident in the overall economy in Texas: “We are the largest exporter in the world that’s been true for a long time. But we also are a magnet. Part of that growth has been we are a magnet for people and firms that are coming to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, and that trend is continuing.”
MIT researchers developed a new form of non-invasive deep brain stimulation that promises to be less risky, less expensive, and more accessible to patients.In partnership with investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (MIDMC) and the IT’IS Foundation, MIT hopes this technology can treat people with Parkinson’s disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, epilepsy, and depression, among other conditions (like autism).“Traditional deep brain stimulation requires opening the skull and implanting an electrode, which can have complications,” Ed Boyden, associate professor of biological engineering and brain and cognitive sciences at MIT said in a statement.“Only a small number of people,” he added, can do this kind of neurosurgery, which requires implanting electrodes in the brain. Those used to treat Parkinson’s disease, for instance, are usually placed in the subthalamic nucleus—i.e. “deep within the brain.”But while the procedure can improve symptoms, surgery is incredibly risky and can lead to brain hemorrhage and infection.Instead, MIT analysts are using temporal interference to deliver stimulation via electrodes placed on the scalp.As described by the Institute, two high-frequency electrical currents intersect deep within the brain, generating a low-frequency current inside neurons—which can be used to drive neurons’ electrical activity. The high-frequency current, meanwhile, passes through with no effect.The researcher retains complete control over size and location of stimulation and can steer the system without moving electrodes, allowing for adoption in therapeutic and scientific operations.So far, testing has been conducted only with mice; there is no word on if or when this project will expand to include human patients. Still, Li-Huei Tsai, director of MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, remains optimistic.“I think it’s very exciting because Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders seem to originate from a very particular region of the brain, and if you can target that, you have the potential to reverse it,” she said.

News | June 16, 2008 Honey, Silver Among New Trends in Wound Care Treatments June 17, 2008 – A new report on the worldwide wound care market by Kalorama Information shows research is shining a light on some very familiar substances that have powerful medicinal properties – including honey and silver.Advancements in biotechnology, biomaterials and tissue engineering are driving growth in the worldwide wound care market, which reached $12.3 billion in 2007. According to the new report, “World Wound Care Markets 2008,” honey used to treat wounds is not a new concept; it has served as an effective remedy for centuries. But recently, there has been renewed interest in and new products commercializing its medicinal properties.Honey’s positive effects on the healing process are myriad, from reducing inflammation, swelling and pain, to promoting the shedding of dead tissue and faster healing with minimal scarring. Honey is also an excellent antibacterial agent, and unlike other antiseptics, it is not harmful to tissues.What is behind honey’s powerful therapeutic and antibacterial properties? The hydrogen peroxide it generates stimulates the growth of new cells and blood vessels. Antioxidants prevent the formation of free radicals, which lead to inflammation. Vitamins, amino acids and minerals are vital to new tissue growth, since damage to the underlying circulation limits nutrients from reaching the wound.“With clinical trials providing the evidence and rational explanations for its therapeutic efficacy, honey is finding acceptance in the mainstream medical field,” said Mary Anne Crandall, the report’s author. “Companies such as MoInlycke Healthcare, Comvita and Derma Sciences are successfully commercializing honey-based wound care dressings and antibacterial gels.”Major wound care companies are also producing novel dressings that integrate the antimicrobial power of silver. Though they represent a fraction of wound care sales, honey and silver demonstrate the ingenuity of wound care makers, the report states. Kalorama Information’s report “World Wound Care Markets 2008 (Sales and Key Trends in the Treatment of Burns, Skin Ulcers, Surgical and Trauma Wounds),” details the latest trends, developments, and challenges in the wound care field. It includes market size, forecasts through 2012, product reviews, and company profiles. For more information: www.kaloramainformation.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享

GLENDALE, Ariz. — For the last couple of seasons, fans of the Arizona Cardinals have been frustrated by special teams play.One incredibly frustrated fan maintains a website called FireAmosJones.com — a crusade against the Cardinals’ special teams coach who has served under Bruce Arians for five seasons.The webmaster will have a lot to add to the site after Sunday’s 32-16 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at University of Phoenix Stadium. But blocking on kicks wasn’t the only special teams deficiency Sunday.In a stretch early in the third quarter with Los Angeles leading 19-13, the Cardinals forced a three-and-out and Rams punter Johnny Hekker — a three-time All-Pro — punted from his own 9-yard line. Hekker uncorked a 70-yard punt that sailed over the head of returner Patrick Peterson and bounced out of bounds at the 21-yard line.Arizona did nothing on its next possession, and after Gabbert was sacked by Aaron Donald to force a punt, Cardinals punter Andy Lee got off a 40-yard punt, which Los Angeles’ Pharoh Cooper returned 30 yards to the Cardinals’ 30.“We had poor protection down the right side,” Arians said. “We tried to cut their wing. Andy felt the pressure. That also stopped our contain guy. Our gunner didn’t make it down, so that whole side of the field was empty.“They made a good play and we made a poor play.”Six plays later, Rams quarterback Jared Goff hit Sammy Watkins on an 11-yard touchdown pass to balloon the lead to 13 points.The Cardinals also got next to nothing in their return game. Peterson managed 12 yards on two returns. Brittan Golden averaged 16.5 yards on the two kickoffs Greg Zuerlein didn’t put into the end zone. The division-leading Rams thoroughly outplayed the Cardinals, in all three phases, but the disparity in the third phase was very telling.Arizona, which dipped to 5-7 on the season, had two kicks blocked — both an extra point and a field goal attempt. On both plays, the Rams attacked right up the middle, knocking long snapper Justin Drescher onto his backside.After falling behind 16-0, the Cardinals rallied. Elijhaa Penny capped a 63-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown run — the first of his career — to put Arizona on the board. Later in the second quarter, Blaine Gabbert hit Larry Fitzgerald on a 15-yard touchdown pass that should have pulled the Cardinals to within two points, but the Rams’ Tyrunn Walker blocked the point-after.In the fourth quarter, the Cardinals trailed, 26-16, and set up for a 45-yard field goal attempt from Phil Dawson that would have made it a one-score game. Once again, the Rams attacked the middle, with Michael Brockers doing the honors in smothering the attempt.Many fans in the stadium and on social media immediately pointed the finger at Jones. Arians doesn’t share that view.“It was coached up as well as you could coach it up,” Arians said of the blocked field goal. “We just didn’t execute it.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Arizona Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson (4) kicks a field goal during the second half of an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz.

JK Rowling, Warner Bros. voice support for Johnny Depp NEW YORK, N.Y. – J.K. Rowling voiced her support for Johnny Depp and his casting in an upcoming sequel to “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” following earlier domestic abuse allegations made against the actor.The author published a statement on her website Thursday, breaking her silence on what had been a simmering controversy for the franchise. Some Harry Potter fans have said they would boycott “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” after Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard in May 2016 said that Depp was “verbally and physically abusive” to her during their marriage. Depp earlier called that claim and others “salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies.” The two settled their divorce last year.Rowling acknowledged that the reports “deeply concerned” her and others behind the production, and that she and director David Yates considered recasting Depp’s role. While Depp had a brief cameo in “Fantastic Beasts,” he has a starring role as the Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the follow-up film, and potentially future installments in the pre-Potter franchise.“For me personally, the inability to speak openly to fans about this issue has been difficult, frustrating and at times painful. However, the agreements that have been put in place to protect the privacy of two people, both of whom have expressed a desire to get on with their lives, must be respected,” wrote Rowling. “Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.”Rowling added: “I accept that there will be those who are not satisfied with our choice of actor in the title role. However, conscience isn’t governable by committee. Within the fictional world and outside it, we all have to do what we believe to be the right thing.”Warner Bros. said it supported the decision.“This matter has been jointly addressed by both parties, in a statement in which they said ‘there was never any intent of physical or emotional harm,’” said the studio in a statement. “Based on the circumstances and the information available to us, we, along with the filmmakers, continue to support the decision to proceed with Johnny Depp in the role of Grindelwald in this and future films.”___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Dec 7, 2017 9:09 am PDT Last Updated Dec 7, 2017 at 10:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Review: With posthumous release, Avicii goes out on top Avicii, “TIM” (Universal)The first words from the first single of Avicii’s latest album are a gut-punch: “Can you hear me? SOS.” Not long after he wrote the lyric, the Swedish DJ-producer was dead. The hardest part is that his posthumous album, “TIM,” is a farewell wave from an artist who clearly was at the top of his game.Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, died in Oman last year at 28. He left behind a dozen excellent songs that show he had grown into a pop music powerhouse, attracting the likes of Imagine Dragons and Coldplay’s Chris Martin as guests.Days before leaving for Oman, he sent new music to his team, outlining what songs he wanted on his forthcoming album. No two are the same.He explores Indian sounds (“Tough Love”), hip-hop and glam (“Excuse Me Mr Sir”), does a little Troye Sivan-like frank intimacy (“Freak”), uses blissed-out harmonies (“Peace of Mind”) and tropical vibes (“Bad Reputation”). Joe Janiak offers vocals on two tracks, Bonn on another pair and the Swedish production team Vargas & Lagola collaborated on three songs.Avicii adds ominous strings with Imagine Dragons to create the near-operatic “Heart Upon My Sleeve.” His collaboration with Martin on “Heaven” may remind you of the Coldplay man’s work on the smash hit “Something Like This” with The Chainsmokers. It may even be better.“TIM” is the culmination of Avicii’s song-based flair that incorporates elements outside EDM. Unlike other DJs, his songs aren’t rushed. He lets them breathe. The predictable tricks his rivals use are absent here. The songs feel organic, not processed.Lyrically, it’s tempting to find darkness and, sure, it’s there. “Can I get a little peace?” go the lyrics on one song. “Down upon my knees,” go another. “I still feel broken.”But “TIM” is actually optimistic in tone. “All the breath in your lungs/Is stronger than the tears in your eyes,” the lyrics go on “Hold the Line.” And despite fighting with a lover in “Tough Love,” it concludes: “There’s no place I’d rather be than in your arms.”Even “SOS” — which reunites Avicii with Aloe Blacc, who sang on Avicii’s biggest hit, 2013’s “Wake Me Up” — has hope: “I can feel your love pulling me up from the underground.” There is the power of love all over “TIM.” Let that be his legacy.___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwitsMark Kennedy, The Associated Press by Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press Posted Jun 5, 2019 11:57 am PDT FILE – In this Aug. 30, 2013, file photo, Swedish DJ, remixer and record producer Avicii poses for a portrait in New York.

The party regreted that if President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) had adhered to its “wise counsel” such killings would have been averted In a statement by its spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan PDP insisted that Buhari’s failure to “address and bring to book the perpetrators of killings and bloodletting in various parts of the country is emboldening insurgents and marauders to further attack and murder defenseless Nigerians” The statement said “It is most disheartening that compatriots are being killed daily because those saddled with the responsibility of safeguarding lives are careless about the well-being and safety of the people as they focus only on their ill-fated 2019 re-election bid “Even when the Zamfara State governor Abdul-aziz Yari cried out that he was overwhelmed by the spate of insecurity and killings the Federal Government gave him an ineffectual response laced with their trite blame game “We urge Nigerians to note that since the escalation of killings and bloodlettings in various parts of the country particularly in Plateau Benue Taraba Kogi Adamawa Yobe Borno Zamfara Kaduna and other states no concrete steps have been taken by the APC administration to strengthen and fortify the security architecture in the troubled areas “Instead what we are witnessing are inactions impotent assurances and blame games that have continued to compromise security in the areas thereby creating an opening for marauders to continue to ravage our people “In fact if the APC and its Federal Government had channeled the same energy and resources they have deployed to fighting perceived opponents towards fighting marauders and insurgents the security challenge would not have been as devastating as we have in our nation today “We now find ourselves in a situation where government attaches no value to the lives of Nigerians so much so that top security officials flout presidential orders and even abandon their security duties in troubled areas while the President as the commander-in-chief takes no strong steps to reorder his parade “The PDP particularly agrees with Nigerians that if the over 7000 security personnel police surveillance helicopters and Armoured Personnel Carriers were not withdrawn from their primary security duties and drafted to be part of the APC national convention the Marauders would not have had a field day in this Plateau attack “Furthermore the PDP calls on the APC and its government to come out clear on what they stand to gain by allowing these killings and bloodletting to fester as if the lives of our citizens have become worthless “Finally while the PDP commiserates with the families of the victims of the attack we totally reject these killings and demand an immediate concrete step to get to the root of the matter and end this bloodletting in our land” The final draft of a 20-year Ibadan city master plan aimed at tackling flooding as well as charting a new direction for the city has been presented to the Governor of Oyo State Senator Abiola Ajimobi The detailed master plan is expected to be submitted by September The Ibadan drainage and solid waste master plans are aimed at enhancing infrastructural development and future expansion of Ibadan A statement made available to journalists Sunday evening by the Communications office of the Governor stated that the governor received the draft document from the representatives of Design and Architecture Bureau Consulting Engineers led by the Project Manager Mr Yann Leclerq at the Governor’s Office Ibadan on Friday The Ibadan City master plan which covers the original 11 Local Government Areas of Ibadanland examined the state’s natural environment history of flooding transport infrastructure housing population among others The statement added that Leclerq informed that the draft master plan reflected the immediate and future needs of citizens of the city whom he said were among the stakeholders that were engaged during the process According to him the development of a master plan was inspired by the August 2011 flooding in Ibadan and those before then which he said were triggered by several natural and human factors Particularly he listed deforestation development on flood plain clogging of water surface informal settlements dumping in water channels among several human factors responsible for flooding in the city “This master plan will provide sound planning frameworks and foundations to attract investment for existing and new business growth It will prevent flooding episodes for existing and future development areas “We are also confident that it will improve and expand the city’s transport network It will aid plans for and accommodate the future population growth It will also enhance the quality of life for existing and future residents “Part of the objectives is to use this plan to establish the basis for the provision of adequate infrastructure capable of meeting the need of the population” he said The project manager added that Friday’s presentation was aimed at aggregating and incorporating the comments of state executive council and critical stakeholders leading to the presentation of a detailed plan in September Ajimobi in his response said that lack of a master plan contributed to the vulnerability of the city leading to natural disasters such as the flooding witnessed on August 26 2011 Instead of emphasizing only mass transit system of transportation as contained in the draft document Ajimobi tasked the consultants to incorporate intra and inter-city rail system into the final document to take advantage of the existing Lagos-Ibadan rail line “I will also want you to incorporate how the state can cope with the existing structures and settlements It will give us legitimacy to remove illegal structures on flood plains I know the implementation may pose challenges but let us see “In making recommendations on street trading emphasis should be on enforcement But at the same time you have to take into consideration our culture and peculiarities For instance can we have trading axis neighbourhood markets and the rest “You have listened to the observations and contributions of the members of the executive council Please work on these so that we may have a robust master plan that will ensure coordinated physical growth improved socio-economic development and enhanced living standards of residents “More importantly this will make the city resilient to stress and responsive to natural disasters especially flooding in the future” he stated The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed that the northern part of the country remains its strongholds where it had enjoyed massive support and majority votes within the last 16 years Disclosing this in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary Olisa Metuh the party attributed this acceptance to the unprecedented performance it has recorded in all sectors in the region According to the PDP “Our strength lies in the fact that out of the 19 states in the north the PDP controls 12 with solid structures over the years in all the wards and local government areas “The capacity of our winning machine is buoyed by the various tangible development projects that have hugely affected the lives of ordinary Nigerians in the north” Metuh continued that the foregoing had put the PDP in vantage position to win back: “its original states of Sokoto Kano Nasarawa and Kwara as well as win in Borno Yobe and Zamfara states’’ He stressed that as the PDP campaign train moves to the North it would not just ask for votes but was loaded with verifiable achievements Citing an instance in education the PDP spokesman noted that the once abandoned Almajiri boys could now go to school as President Jonathan initiated and established the Almajiri System of Education He observed that this was the first of its kind with over 150 special schools already built across Northern states while others were near completion “Out of the 14 new universities established by President Jonathan nine are located in the northern states thereby ensuring that all states of the region have a federal university “This is in addition to the establishment of new secondary schools and training of teachers for better quality education in the region” he said Metuh further said that in recognition that agriculture was the mainstay of the northern economy President Jonathan ensured that out of the 27 million direct farm jobs achieved by his administration over 2 million were in the north While claiming that President Jonathan had committed enormous resources in tackling desertification in the region within the last four years he pointed out that the President Jonathan’s administration had also established more than 80 km of 15– row Green Belt in addition to the Presidential Initiative on Afforestation in Kano and 10 other Northern states “The revitalization of the railways by the Jonathan administration has connected major cities in the north and very soon it will become easy for Nigerians to come to work in Abuja from the northern states” he said promising that the Abuja-Kaduna standard gauge rail was expected to become operational in the first quarter of 2015 Lebanon and other parts of the Middle East.
