Some of the recent transfer speculation involving the area’s Championship clubs. Embed from Getty ImagesThe Mail claim Celtic, Sunderland and Olympiacos are showing an interest in QPR captain Nedum Onuoha.It is claimed that Onuoha, 30, has a clause in his Rangers contract enabling him to leave on a free transfer and that Sunderland boss David Moyes previously tried to sign him for Everton.Onuoha, who spent the 2010-11 season on loan at Sunderland from Manchester City, has been touted for a move to top-flight clubs during successive transfer windows. Taylor speculationEmbed from Getty ImagesThe Mail also say Bristol Rovers striker Matty Taylor can go for £300,000 and that QPR and Brentford are among the clubs to have been alerted to his availability.The other clubs are Wolves, Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich, the Mail say.Taylor, 26, reportedly has a clause in his Rovers contract allowing him to move this month.QPR boss Ian Holloway recently insisted he would not be interested in taking Taylor to Loftus Road.Holloway said: “He’s a very good player who belongs to Bristol Rovers and I shouldn’t talk about anybody else’s players.“There are a lot of players who step up a level and can score. But it’s about the balance I need – the pace and power to move the ball from back to front sometimes if Idrissa Sylla’s injured.“Have I got anyone who can do that? I’m not so sure I have, and Matty Taylor isn’t really that sort of player.” McCormack speculationDerby County and Sheffield Wednesday have joined Fulham in showing an interest in Ross McCormack, the Mail say.The forward left Fulham to join Aston Villa in the summer but is unsettled in the West Midlands and has been linked with a return to Craven Cottage.He was recently criticised by Villa boss Steve Bruce for missing training. The Mail suggest Bruce’s comments have damaged his club’s chances of recouping the reported £12m fee they paid for McCormack. Luongo reveals Chinese approachesQPR midfielder Massimo Luongo says he receives regular approaches to play in China.Speaking to beIN Sports, Luongo, 24, insisted he was determined to “get to the top” rather than accept potentially huge wages in the Far East.“Probably once a month there’s always someone trying to get me over there — an agent or someone who could probably profit from it as well, but it doesn’t interest me,” Luongo said.“When the figures start flying about it does start to get in my head. Then when I see what my mates are on or Diego Costa or whoever’s flirting with it at the moment.“But I still want to prove myself at the highest level I can here. Leaving (Tottenham) to (join) Swindon on a permanent was the best thing I could have done. Just getting first-team football was what I wanted and I proved myself at that level.“At the moment I’m trying to prove myself at Championship level. I think I’ll be better off if I do that and hopefully get to the top.”QPR want Luongo to sign an improved contract at Loftus Road.

A mosquito repellent patch, made using non-toxic substances, is being developed to curb diseases such as malaria. Developed by Olfactor Laboratories in the US, the company hopes to release its innovation in the first quarter of 2017.A patch has been created that will help beat malaria by repelling mosquitoes. (Image: Indiegogo)Brand South Africa reporterA sticker patch could be the next step in malaria prevention in Africa. It is being developed in California by Olfactor Laboratories. People wearing the patch became invisible to mosquitoes, said the company, and could be guarded against bites for up to 48 hours.Called the Kite Patch, it uses safe chemicals that stop mosquitoes from detecting the carbon dioxide humans breathe out, which the insects use to track people.“Our goal is to be ready to ship Kite Patch in Q1 2017,” reads the campaign page on the crowdfunding website, Indiegogo.“When you wear Kite, the product makes you practically invisible to mosquitoes,” said chief researcher Dr Michelle Brown in a video. “And we’ve been able to accomplish this using food-grade FDA approved compounds, removing the need to use toxic and dangerous chemicals that are currently found in today’s products.”Watch the video:Kite Patch from SPARKHOUSE on VimeoBrown said science was integral to fighting malaria, but there was no silver bullet. “However, we are confident that our work to make humans invisible to mosquitoes will be transformational in the broader war against mosquito-borne diseases.”Funding and field studyThe project was co-funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and money was raised using the crowdfunding methods on Indiegogo.Innovative @KitePatch blocks a mosquito’s ability to sense humans. Interesting approach in fight against #malaria: http://t.co/mNMXSgrnTy— Bill Gates (@BillGates) August 26, 2013The team travelled to Uganda as part of their field survey.“We researched and tested various technologies, brought in experts and worked with development partners to make Kite Patch a possibility,” reads the Indigogo site. “Some approaches proved unscalable, some underperformed and all required a long regulatory approval processes.”However, researchers have said that at this stage, the patch is not yet as effective as other Kite mosquito repellents. “As we continue to develop it, we seek to make it a complementary product to Kite Shield [mosquito repellent spray].”Source: Biz NewsWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

At present, the competency level is 60%. Quality education and employment pose a big challenge for the government,” he added.Mr. Khttar said that the UPA’s ‘no detention policy’ till Class VIII had adversely impacted the education system. “To improve education, we have started a monthly test programme for evaluation of students in government schools.

We have already opened 23 new colleges in the past two-and-a-half years,” he added.

BATON ROUGE, LA – OCTOBER 13: LSU Tigers huddles up before a game against the Georgia Bulldogs at Tiger Stadium on October 13, 2018 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. (Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images)Over the last week or so, Florida and LSU’s football programs have been arguing on social media over which program is the rightful “D.B.U” – the true home of elite defensive backs. The Gators released a “D.B.U” hype video and players from the two programs spatted on Twitter. The Tigers have responded with a video of their own. Check out this “LSU is DBU” video released by LSU’s video production team this afternoon. It’s pretty great. LSU is DBU from LSU Football on Vimeo.
On Monday, we posted “Are Pro Wrestlers Dying at an Unusual Rate?,” showing that wrestlers from the WWF era have passed away at a clip far exceeding actuarial expectations. One of the most common questions I received about the blog post was how wrestlers compared to other professional athletes. Here’s commenter Matthew Durst:Is this phenomenon unique to wrestling or is it a cost of doing any professional sport? What’s the years of life loss on average for the big 4 sports?I’m glad he asked.To investigate, I used ESPN’s athlete bio database, pulling out anyone who had played at least five seasons in any of the Big Four sports (football, baseball, basketball and hockey). I used the same five age groups (35-40, 40-45, 45-50, 50-55, 55-60) that I did for the wrestling analysis, except as of Dec. 31, 2010 (the most recent year for which we have data). I used only athletes whose careers had ended in 1998 or earlier (to match the period I looked at for the WWF, which changed its name to WWE in 2002). Then I took the simple percentage dead from each age group, as before:Outside of the WWF, professional athletes beat actuarial expectations. The NFL — which is commonly portrayed as being one step up from the Ludi — at the very least doesn’t appear to produce many early deaths. Even offensive linemen, whose curve would be a bit higher on the grid, come in well under average (with about 4 percent dead in the entire age range).Though a bit surprising, there are good reasons why we might expect successful pro athletes to be better than average at surviving the 35- to 60-year-old period of their lives. They make a lot of money during their careers and have fairly good job prospects (relative to average) thereafter. They operate in a disciplined, highly regulated environment during a formative period of their lives and face extensive drug testing. Not to mention, these athletes are highly skilled and physically honed professionals. Their bodies may take a lot of damage that may stay with them for the rest of their lives, but it’s not the kind of damage that typically leads to an early grave.Wrestling in the WWF era, on the other hand, is reputed to have had a party culture, extensive performance-enhancing and recreational drug use, training focused on more aesthetic than functional physical improvements, a brutal schedule, and fewer monetary rewards than fans might think.
Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recommends any owner of small office and home office routers power cycle (reboot) the devices. When restarted, compromised routers will attempt to contact the Russian-backed web domain — now controlled by the FBI — which previously would have downloaded a malicious payload to reinfect the router. Now, those attempts will be redirected to the FBI-controlled server, which will help identify infected devices. The F.B.I. has several recommendations for any owner of a small office or home office router. The simplest thing to do is reboot the device, which will temporarily disrupt the malware if it is present. Users are also advised to upgrade the device’s firmware and to select a new secure password. If any remote-management settings are in place, the F.B.I. suggests disabling them. A full list of compromised routers can be found here. The malware is able to perform multiple functions, including possible information collection, device exploitation, and blocking network traffic. According to a release from the FBI, foreign cyber actors have compromised hundreds of thousands of home and office routers and other networked devices worldwide.
