So really pleased.”I’m not surprised [by his performances]. His technical ability is so high; he’s got two lovely feet and a very good football brain.”It was more a case of wanting him to show everybody what he can do on a consistent basis and he’s started to do it this [season].”

YouTubeThe Jameis Winston crab legs story was one of the craziest of the year in college football, and based on a clip from ESPN’s “Draft Academy,” we may not have had the whole story after all. On the “Combine” episode of ESPN’s series, while going through interview practice with Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, Winston went into detail about the crab legs incident, explaining that a Publix employee had “hooked him up” with the free food before someone else called security on him.This certainly changes the story, and seems like it could be an NCAA issue, especially if this is a common occurence. We’ll continue to update on this new development as more unfolds.

Washington DC: Scientists, using NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), have observed water molecules moving around the dayside of the Moon, the US space agency said, an advance that could help us learn about accessibility of water that can be used by humans in future lunar missions. Measuerments from the Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) instrument aboard the LRO of the sparse layer of molecules temporarily stuck to the surface helped characterise lunar hydration changes over the course of a day, according to the study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

More recently, scientists have identified surface water in sparse populations of molecules bound to the lunar soil, or regolith, NASA said in a statement. The amount and locations vary based on the time of day. This water is more common at higher latitudes and tends to hop around as the surface heats up. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in XinjiangThese results aid in understanding the lunar water cycle and will ultimately help us learn about accessibility of water that can be used by humans in future missions to the Moon, said Amanda Hendrix, a senior scientist at the Planetary Science Institute. Lunar water can potentially be used by humans to make fuel or to use for radiation shielding or thermal management; if these materials do not need to be launched from Earth, that makes these future missions more affordable, Hendrix said in a statement. Water molecules remain tightly bound to the regolith until surface temperatures peak near lunar noon. Molecules thermally desorb and can bounce to a nearby location that is cold enough for the molecule to stick or populate the Moon’s extremely tenuous atmosphere or exosphere, until temperatures drop and the molecules return to the surface, the US space agency said. Michael Poston from Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Texas, US, had previously conducted extensive experiments with water and lunar samples collected by the Apollo missions. The latest research revealed the amount of energy needed to remove water molecules from lunar materials, helping scientists understand how water is bound to surface materials. Lunar hydration is tricky to measure from orbit, due to the complex way that light reflects off of the lunar surface, said Poston, who is now a research scientist on the LAMP team,. “Previous research reported quantities of hopping water molecules that were too large to explain with known physical processes. I’m excited about these latest results because the amount of water interpreted here is consistent with what lab measurements indicate is possible,” he said. Scientists have hypothesised that hydrogen ions in the solar wind may be the source of most of the Moon’s surface water. When the Moon passes behind the Earth and is shielded from the solar wind, the water spigot should essentially turn off, they noted. However, the water observed by LAMP does not decrease when the Moon is shielded by the Earth and the region influenced by its magnetic field, suggesting water builds up over time, rather than raining down directly from the solar wind.
Houston: Scientists have used artificial intelligence (AI) to uncover two more hidden planets in the data collected by the Kepler space telescope. The technique shows promise for identifying many additional planets that traditional methods could not catch. Researchers from The University of Texas at Austin in the US created an algorithm that sifts through the data taken by Kepler to ferret out signals that were missed by traditional planet-hunting methods. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year The process, described in the The Astronomical Journal, should help astronomers find many more missed planets hiding in Kepler data. “K2 data is more challenging to work with because the spacecraft is moving around all the time,” said Andrew Vanderburg, from UT Austin. This change came about after a mechanical failure. While mission planners found a workaround, the spacecraft was left with a wobble that AI had to take into account. Also Read – New HP Pavilion x360 notebook with in-built Alexa in India The Kepler and K2 missions have already discovered thousands of planets around other stars, with an equal number of candidates awaiting confirmation. The two planets are both very typical of planets found in K2, researchers said. “They’re really close in to their host star, they have short orbital periods, and they’re hot. They are slightly larger than Earth,” said Anne Dattilo, who led the study. Of the two planets, one is called K2-293b and orbits a star 1,300 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius. The other, K2-294b, orbits a star 1,230 light-years away, also located in Aquarius. Once the team used their algorithm to find these planets, they followed up by studying the host stars using ground-based telescopes to confirm that the planets are real. These observations were done with the 1.5-metre telescope at the Smithsonian Institution’s Whipple Observatory in Arizona and the Gillett Telescope at Gemini Observatory in Hawaii. The future of the AI concept for finding planets hidden in data sets looks bright. The current algorithm can be used to probe the entire K2 data set, Dattilo said — approximately 300,000 stars. The method couls also be applied to Kepler’s successor planet-hunting mission, TESS, which launched in April 2018. Kepler’s mission ended later that year.
South Korea revolves around Son Heung-min, but is he all on his own?FIFA Ranking: 57World Cup history – Just as many other second or lower tier teams that have hosted a World Cup, South Korea also had its biggest success when it had the honour to welcome opponents on its home terrain back in 2002. After surprisingly topping Group D ahead of the United States, Portugal and Poland, the South Koreans defeated Italy in the Round of 16 through a 117th minute golden goal by Ahn Jung-hwan, then took the scalp of another giant Spain on penalty kicks, before losing to Germany in the semi-final in Seoul. They eventually finished fourth after getting beaten by Turkey in the third place playoff match.Otherwise, South Korea has been eligible to participate as such since the 1950 World Cup. Its very first participation in 1954 wasn’t a memorable one, as the inexperienced Taegeuk Warriors were thrashed by both Hungary (9-0) and Turkey (7-0) in the group stage. Its next appearance was in 1986. South Korea has been a part of every World Cup since that year, but other than 2002, it has managed to progress past the group stage only one other time (in 2010).How they qualified? – South Korea wasn’t convincing during the AFC qualification process, managing to earn a mere 15 points from 10 matches. It finished second behind Iran, which was enough to ensure direct promotion.Full 23-man squad:Goalkeepers: Kim Seung-gyu (Vissel Kobe) Kim Jin-hyeon (Cerezo Osaka) Cho Hyun-woo (Daegu FC)Defenders: Kim young-gwon (Guangzhou Evergrande) Jang Hyun-soo (FC Tokyo) Jung Seung-hyun (Sagan Tosu) Yun Yong-sun (Seongnam FC) Oh Ban-suk (Jeju United) Kim Min-woo (Sangju Sangmu) Park Joo-ho (Ulsan Hyundai) Hong Chul (Sangju Sangmu) Go Yo-han (FC Seoul) Lee Yong (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors)Son Heung-Min refuses to raise panic button after Spurs loss Andrew Smyth – August 25, 2019 Son Heung-Min has called on his team-mates to remain positive and move on following a shock 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle United.Midfielders: Ki Sung-yueng (Swansea City) Jung Woo-young (Vissel Kobe) Ju Se-jong (Asan Mugunghwa FC) Koo Ja-cheol (FC Augsburg) Lee Jae-sung (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors) Lee Seung-woo (Hellas Verona) Moon Seon-min (Incheon United)Forwards: Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) Hwang Hee-chan (FC Red Bull Salzburg) Kim Shin-wook (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors)Coach: Shin Tae-yongSouth Korea’s Group F fixtures: South Korea – Sweden (18 June), Nizhny Novgorod Stadium South Korea – Mexico (23 June), Rostov Arena South Korea – Germany (27 June), Kazan ArenaOther than Tottenham forward and South Korean superstar Son Heung-min, South Korea has a couple of other valuable contributors. Augsburg’s Koo Ja-cheol, Swansea’s Ki Sung-yueng and Red Bull Salzburg’s Hwang Hee-chan are all European-based footballers who know what it takes to compete with the best. Nevertheless, this Korean squad does not appear to be as dangerous as some of the other South Korean squads in previous World Cups. Expectations are low, which means getting past the group will be a remarkable accomplishment.Star player: Son Heung-minPlayer to watch: Hwang Hee-chan
My girlfriends were engulfed in the world of Self, Glamour and Marie Claire. Some of us even dabbled with Sassy, and later, Jane and Bust. They were the cool smart chicks of the bunch, but I always felt they were just…lacking. Sassy and Jane fell under (but Jane Pratt is going strong on xojane, and though Bust is still chugging along, its voice has gotten younger, cheekier and hipster. It may be the major magazine for a good pop-feminist read, but I’ve outgrown it.Consider the sequence of a typical women’s magazine: letters, trends, fashion spreads, maybe an interview with a celebrity, more on trends (fashion, beauty, exercise), some obligatory group of “light” recipes, along with a longer editorial on A Serious Topic like genital mutilation or being catfished by a prisoner. It’s content crafted to make women feel guilty for not knowing what’s hot, smart for knowing that this magazine will reveal it, then ashamed for not being able to afford whatever this magazine has revealed. It’s cyclical, and it’s boring. I thought perhaps I was in the minority, being a woman who loves men’s magazines. All of the Big Three’s media kits boast audiences with 30 percent women, so I’m clearly not the only one. Do women read men’s magazines differently from men? In a very unscientific survey (of my two brothers in their twenties and my friend Greg, in his forties), I asked what they liked about Esquire and GQ. My brothers prefer GQ and its fashion tips, the profiles of the women and food. Greg only reads Esquire. As he puts it, “Esquire is not about being a well-dressed, cool man. It’s about being the best man you can be. And even though you can’t necessarily glean any of that knowledge from a magazine, it does a valiant job of trying.”Men’s magazines revolve around cultivating taste: fashion, music, film, books, food, celebrity, sports, cars and (in Details’ case) design. They review where we’ve been and where we’re going, culturally speaking. They’d do better to incorporate more female writers—Stacey Grenrock Woods is a shining example of excellent men’s writing by a female and Jessica Pressler has pushed out some decent profiles for GQ. They don’t always get it right, but the point is: they dare. Yes, they, like women’s magazines, often commoditize gender and make money on reinforcing certain gender stereotypes. But they’re just so glib about it. Where women’s magazines champion us, trying to help us channel our inner sisterhood and answer our Burning Questions, men’s wryly acknowledge that, like most Americans, they’re just stumbling through this crazy mixed-up world, and even they don’t have all the answers. I have plenty of female friends who read women’s mags because they’re mindless entertainment, and I get that. More than anything, I’m an advocate of reading what you enjoy.But that’s just the point that men’s magazines make: entertainment needn’t be mindless.Men’s magazines don’t curate culture; they curate content. They tell me what’s going on culturally and how they feel about it. Women’s magazines ignore what’s going on, because they themselves don’t know how to feel about it. They seem stunted, like the world is just too big for them to comment on—or worse!—that we won’t appreciate a woman magazine’s commentary on larger cultural paradigms. So women’s magazines overcompensate for telling us nothing by telling us everything about nothing (the healing powers of purple fruits! animal prints!). Men’s magazines have their share of frivolity, but they give me the thought stuff too—the national budget, war and PTSD, robotics, a profile of the Vice President. One of the best articles I read was Chris Heath’s coverage in GQ about the massacre of the escaped exotic animals in Zanesville, Ohio. It was a tragic story brilliantly told; and the story of the war between GQ and Esquire competing for the story was just as good. Both magazines published accounts of tragedy; both had writers (Chris Jones for Esquire) on site in the same hotel chasing the same story; both ran in each’s March 2012 issue. I read both articles voraciously, and came out in favor of GQ’s coverage. To my happiness, GQ got an ASME nomination for its story; Esquire didn’t. That’s the other thing I like about men’s magazines: they’re nominated for awards for their journalism, like actual awards, against giants such as The New Yorker, the Atlantic and Rolling Stone. GQ and Esquire are for literary-minded people, for people who care about the actual words on the page. Women’s magazines don’t say anything interesting about the state of culture, they just buy into it. They don’t have a sense of humor about themselves.That’s why I’m sticking with the men—they’re funny, self-effacing and have some of the best editorial content around. None are offering the keys to the universe, but they have a good time trying. I am [spoiler alert!] a woman. But women’s magazines have nothing for me. They’re great when I’m in the salon, but when it comes to reading magazines with bones, with guts, with something to say, the men take it every time. I’m not talking about lad mags, those British imports from 15 years ago. I’m talking about “gentlemen’s magazines”: namely Esquire and GQ, but I also love Details, the dandier kid brother of the other two.I have subscribed to these Big Three for years. I first started reading my father’s Esquire when I was a teenager. Its commentary on music, film and literature was second to none, and its tone was hilarious. Plus it was so cleverly wrapped: a high-end glossy chock full of honest, no-nonsense stuff that I felt smarter for knowing. Sure, it was peppered with self-indulgent photos of female celebrities barely concealing their ladyparts. But to me, it was an obvious statement on American consumerism: that to get people to read smart content, you’re going to have to sell it with sex.

In this file photo taken on 20 January, 2014, an unidentified International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspector disconnects the connections between the twin cascades for 20 per cent uranium production at nuclear power plant of Natanz, some 300 kilometres south of Tehran on 20 January, 2014 as Iran halted production of 20 per cent enriched uranium, marking the coming into force of an interim deal with world powers on its disputed nuclear programme.Iran has notified the International Atomic Energy Agency that it has launched a plan to increase its uranium enrichment capacity, nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi said Tuesday.”If conditions allow, maybe tomorrow night at Natanz, we can announce the opening of the centre for production of new centrifuges” for uranium enrichment, said Salehi, a vice president and head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation, according to conservative news agency Fars.”What we are doing does not violate the (2015 nuclear) agreement,” he said, adding that a letter was submitted to the IAEA “yesterday regarding the start of certain activities”.He specified that this was just the start of the production process and “does not mean that we will start assembling the centrifuges”.Under the 2015 agreement, Iran can build parts for the centrifuges as long as it does not put them into operation within the first decade.Salehi also emphasised that these moves “do not mean the negotiations (with Europe) have failed.”European governments have been trying to salvage the agreement ever since the United States announced its withdrawal last month and said it would reimpose sanctions on foreign companies working in the Islamic republic by November.The other parties — Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia — have vowed to stay in the accord but many of their companies have already started to wind down Iranian operations.On Monday, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned the Europeans that “Iran will never tolerate both suffering from sanctions and nuclear restrictions” and called for preparations to speed up uranium enrichment.Iran insists its nuclear programme is for civilian uses only, but opponents in the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia accuse it of seeking to build an atomic bomb.
