Ohio State mens basketball overwhelmed in regularseason finale at Michigan State

OSU junior forward Marc Loving (2) yells out during a game against Michigan State on Feb. 23 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorIn Saturday’s regular-season finale, Michigan State delivered daggers all day long — both from the field, and to the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s hopes for an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament.At the expense of the Buckeyes, the Spartans (26-5, 13-5) put on a shooting clinic, overwhelming OSU 91-76 in East Lansing, Michigan, on Saturday. The win was the second time the Spartans got the best of the Buckeyes within a two-week span.This time, the Buckeyes (19-12, 11-7) contained senior Bryn Forbes, the sharpshooting guard who nailed seven 3-pointers in their first meeting. The visiting team couldn’t stop a fellow senior guard, Denzel Valentine, however.The Buckeyes, behind freshman guard JaQuan Lyle’s 14 first-half points, remained within striking distance throughout the first half despite several poor defensive lapses.Exposing the Buckeyes’ weakside defense, Valentine, who leads the Big Ten in assists, got his forwards involved early. Before the half, Matt Costello had nine points, Gavin Schilling added eight and Marvin Clark Jr. contributed with six.The Buckeyes controlled Michigan State’s spark plug early on, though the Spartans forgot to contain theirs.Kam Williams, instantly hitting two three-pointers off the bench, helped keep the game within reach, as the Buckeyes trailed 47-37 at halftime.In the second half, OSU never got within single digits despite forward Marc Loving’s strong 15-point half. The junior ended the game with a team-high 21 points, shooting 75 percent from the 3-point line.The Buckeyes shot well (47.4 percent), especially from behind-the-arc (47.8 percent). However, the Spartans shot significantly better (66.7 and 50 percent, respectively).With 14:40 left, the Spartans were ahead 58-47, when a missed free throw by Loving led to a transition three-pointer by Matt McQuaid, getting Tom Izzo’s team going.Valentine, who assisted on McQuaid’s three, then hit a 3-pointer. Forbes, who ended the game with 14 points, followed that sequence up with a 3-pointer of his own. And just like that, the game became out of reach for the Buckeyes.Valentine took over in the second half, ending the game with 27 points, 13 assists and four rebounds.The Buckeyes, carried by Loving, Lyle and Williams, needed more from junior forward Keita Bates-Diop, who had just six points, in a make-or-break game.After the loss, the Buckeyes are slated to begin Big Ten tournament play Thursday in Indianapolis, though their seed is yet to be decided. In order to crash the Big Dance, the Buckeyes must string together a few marquee wins. read more

Unique Red Wolf DNA Found in Texas Canines

first_img The wild red wolf is all but extinct. Or are they?A team of biologists found their DNA in a group of canines living on Galveston Island off the coast of Texas.“This is a remarkable finding, as red wolves were declared extinct in this region over 35 years ago and remain critically endangered,” Princeton graduate student Elizabeth Heppenheimer said in a statement.“While there have been reports of ‘red wolves’ along the Gulf Coast, conventional science dismissed them as misidentified coyotes,” she continued. “Now, we have shown that at least one example of a ‘red wolf sighting’ has some validity to it, as these Galveston Island animals definitely carry genes that are present in the captive red wolf population yet absent from coyotes and gray wolf populations.Previously, the only known living red wolves (Canis lupus rufus) were a reintroduced group in North Carolina.Somewhere between the coyote and gray wolf, the reddish, tawny canids once lived throughout the eastern United States—from the Atlantic Ocean to central Texas—and in the north—from the Ohio River Valley, northern Pennsylvania, and southern New York to the Gulf of Mexico.Nearly driven to extinction in the 1970s, the last known red wolves were trapped for a captive breeding program. Of the 240 captured canines, 17 were deemed 100 percent wolf. Fourteen successfully reproduced, and by 1990s, a population of red wolves were reintroduced to North Carolina.Due to aggressive predator-control programs, habitat destruction, and extensive hybridization with coyotes, however, the red wolf population has dwindled to fewer than 40 survivors—a critically endangered species since 1996.The Princeton study was inspired by wildlife biologist Ron Wooten, who contacted ecology and evolutionary biology professor Bridgett vonHoldt asking for genetic testing of two road-killed animals.Once researchers extracted and processed DNA from Wooten’s samples (one of which got lost and was replaced with a dirty scalpel used to capture the specimen), they compared the results to other legally recognized wild species of the genus Canis.It turns out the Galveston Island animals were more similar to captive red wolves than typical southeastern coyotes. They also carried a unique genetic variation not found in any known canines of North America.“This variation may represent the red wolf-derived genes that were lost as a result of captive breeding,” according to Heppenheimer. “It’s incredibly rare to rediscover animals in a region where they were thought to be extinct, and it’s even more exciting to show that a piece of an endangered genome has been preserved in the wild.”Their work was published in the special issue “Conservation Genetics and Genomics” of the journal Genes.More on Geek.com:‘First Ever’ Footage of Wolves Hunting Freshwater Fish Captured in Minn.Let Dogs Be Dogs: ‘Ground Scratching’ Behavior Nothing to Worry AboutDNA Test Identifies Mysterious Midwestern Mammal Four Critically Endangered Red Wolf Pups Born at Chicago Zoo Stay on targetlast_img read more

Wandering ballots get loving attention

first_imgBallots cast in Seattle shouldn’t be a factor at the Clark County elections office, but some voters have had a little trouble with that.It’s just one of the factors that make Election Day a three-week assignment for county elections staff. Election Day was Nov. 2; final results won’t be certified until Nov. 23.So far, 149,729 Clark County ballots have been processed, and the next update will be announced Tuesday.Meanwhile, ballots continue to trickle in.“We got nine more ballots today from King County,” said Tim Likness, county elections supervisor, on Friday afternoon. “That brings us up to a total of 26 from King County.”They’re from voters who are registered in Clark County but were in Seattle during the election.“It could be somebody who moved up there, or it could be college kids,” Likness said. “They didn’t update their address, and it was too late to register there, so they would go to a location in King County and get a provisional ballot.“They would vote that ballot, whatever they were given,” Likness said. After some record-checking, those ballots eventually wind up in the Clark County elections office.last_img read more

HC for panels to stop chemical use in fruits

first_imgThe High Court on Monday directed the authorities concerned to constitute committees to monitor fruit markets and warehouses across the country so that chemicals are not used to ripen fruits, reports UNB.Passing the order, the HC bench of justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and justice KM Kamrul Kader sought a compliance report within 18 June.The inspector general of police, director general and director (chemical testing wing) of Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institution (BSTI) and director general of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) were asked to execute the order.Lawyer Manzill Murshid stood for the petitioner while deputy attorney general ABM Al Bashar represented the state.On 9 April, the court asked for deploying police in mango orchards in Rajshahi to prevent the use of chemicals in mangoes.Besides, an inspection team had been ordered to monitor the fruit markets and warehouses across the country so that no one can use chemicals to ripen mangoes and the four respondents asked to carry out the order and file a report within 30 days.The matter was brought in court’s notice again as the authorities failed to submit the report within the deadline.Manzill Murshid said the court issued a seven-point directive on 29 February, 2012 about mango orchards.”But, we saw a tendency to use chemicals in mangoes in previous years. So, we’ve filed an application before the court urging it to issue the directives again,” he said.last_img read more

US Senate rebukes Trump over Syria withdrawal

first_imgSyrian schoolchildren walk as US troops patrol near Turkish border in Hasakah, Syria on 4 November, 2018. Photo: ReutersIn a rebuke of president Donald Trump, the Republican-led US Senate advanced largely symbolic legislation on Thursday opposing plans for any abrupt withdrawal of troops from Syria and Afghanistan.The Senate voted 68-23 in favour of a non-binding amendment, drafted by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell saying it was the sense of the Senate that Islamic militant groups in both countries continue to pose a “serious threat” to the United States.The procedural vote to cut off debate meant that the amendment would be added to a broader Middle East security bill likely to come up for a final Senate vote next week.The amendment acknowledges progress against Islamic State and al Qaeda in Syria and Afghanistan but warns that “a precipitous withdrawal” without effective efforts to secure gains could destabilize the region and create a vacuum that could be filled by Iran or Russia.It calls upon the Trump administration to certify conditions have been met for the groups’ “enduring defeat” before any significant withdrawal from Syria or Afghanistan.Thursday’s Senate action marked the second time in two months that the Republican-led Senate has supported a measure going against Trump’s foreign policy, although legislation to change his policies has yet to become law.In December, over Trump’s objections, the Senate voted to end US military support for the Saudi-led coalition in the war in Yemen and blame Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.However, the December measure went no further, since it never came up for a vote in the House of Representatives, then led by Trump’s fellow Republicans.The potential impact of Thursday’s vote was similarly uncertain, since the amendment McConnell offered was non-binding and there has been no indication of when, if ever, the broader Middle East security bill would come up for a House vote.Trump has decided to withdraw 2,000 US troops from Syria on the grounds that Islamic State militants no longer pose a threat, saying on Twitter on Wednesday, “We have beaten them” as he disputed Senate testimony by his director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, on Tuesday that the group still posed a threat.Trump said earlier on Thursday he would bring American troops home if a peace deal were reached to end 17 years of war in Afghanistan. The United States and the Taliban have sketched the outlines for an eventual peace accord, a US special envoy said on Monday, but there was no sign the insurgent group had accepted key US demands.last_img read more

Imran Khan visits Kashmir as tensions soar with India

first_imgIn this handout picture taken and released by Prime Minister Office (PMO) on 7 August 2019 Pakistan`s prime minister Imran Khan (L) chairs a National Security Committee meeting along with armed forces chiefs and other government officials in Islamabad. Photo: AFPPrime minister Imran Khan travelled to Pakistani Kashmir on Wednesday where he was expected to issue a fresh challenge to India over its recent power-play which has sent tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbours soaring.His visit to mark the country’s Independence Day comes more than a week after Indian prime minister Narendra Modi delivered a surprise executive decree to strip its portion of the Muslim-majority Himalayan region of its special status.In the wake of the move, Pakistan has launched a diplomatic offensive aimed at reversing the order and formally asked the United Nations Security Council late Tuesday to hold an emergency session to address India’s “illegal actions”.Pakistan has also expelled the Indian ambassador, halted bilateral trade and suspended cross-border transport services, however, analysts said the actions were unlikely to move Delhi.The Indian part of the picturesque Himalayan state has been under lockdown for over a week with tens of thousands of troop reinforcements deployed to the main city of Srinagar and other towns and villages, with a curfew enforced across the region and phone and internet lines cut to quell potential unrest.Indian authorities vowed to reduce the restrictions on freedom of movement in their portion of Kashmir following the country’s own Independence Day celebrations on Thursday.Earlier this week Khan lambasted the international community for failing to challenge India and said turning a blind eye to the spread of Indian Hindu nationalism was the same as appeasing Hitler.As tensions simmered with India, Pakistan moved ahead with independence celebrations which began at the stroke of midnight with firework shows lighting up the skies in major cities, where residents jammed the streets waving the national flag from their cars and motorcycles.In August 1947 the British Raj was dismantled with the subcontinent divided into two independent states — Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan.Millions were uprooted in one of the largest mass migrations in history, with experts estimating at least one million died in the communal violence unleashed by partition that continues to haunt the subcontinent to this day.last_img

Researchers Discover New Technique That Make Help Separate Oil From Water

first_img All Close Oil famously does not mix with water but when joined together, the two liquids can be very difficult to separate.Several methods can get the job done depending on the relative amount of water and oil or the size of oil droplets. For emulsified oil, the most efficient way is to use a membrane that can filter tiny droplets out of the water.However, membranes immediately get “fouled” and would need to be cleaned. Wow facts 2Share this videoCopyPausePlay00:00% Buffered0PreviousPausePlayNextLive00:00 / 00:00UnmuteMuteExit fullscreenFullscreenCopy video urlPlay / PauseMute / UnmuteReport a problemLanguageBackMox PlayerDefaultEnglishEspañolУкраїнськаРусскийadvertisementIn a paper published in the journal Applied Materials and Interfaces, a team of researchers from MIT discussed an imaging tool that enables the development of a new membrane material that can resist fouling.What Is Inside A Membrane?Gregory Rutledge, a professor of chemical engineering and one of the authors of the paper, said that the fouling process is nearly impossible to observe. The filtration membranes are usually tightly packed and “tend to be very hard to look inside of.””There’s a lot of effort to develop new types of membranes, but when they get put in service, you want to see how they interact with the contaminated water, and they don’t lend themselves to easy examination,” he explained in a press release.The solution they proposed involves the use of two lasers to scan the material layer by layer. The technique is called confocal laser scanning microscopy.When the two laser beams cross, the material marked with a fluorescent dye glows. For their experiment, the researchers used two dyes: one on the oil in the fluid and the other on the fibers of the membrane.More Efficient Way To Separate Oil And WaterThe technique allowed for the creation of a full 3D image of the way the droplets of oil are dispersed throughout the membrane. This can provide a better understanding of how the separation between oil and water take place and of what fouling really is.”The hope is that with a better understanding of the mechanism of fouling, people will be able to spend more time on the techniques that are more likely to succeed,” Rutledge said. He added that engineers can design different types of membranes to deal with varying effluents.The researchers believe that the technique can also be used in the study of how mixed fluids interact and to observe the separation of other kinds of mixtures, such as solid particles in liquids.

God weeps says pope after meeting church sex abuse victims

first_imgPope Francis met on Sunday with victims of church sex abuse, saying “God weeps” for their suffering and promising to hold all those responsible to account.The pope met the three women and two men, with their relatives and educators, for 30 minutes at the St. Charles Borromeo seminary in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania on the final day of his visit to the United States, the Vatican said in a statement.“God weeps,” the pope told a gathering of bishops afterwards. “The sexual abuse of children cannot be maintained secret.“I commit to a careful oversight to ensure that youth are protected and all responsible will be held accountable.”“Those who have survived the abuse have become true heralds of mercy, probably we owe each of them our gratitude for their great value as they have had to suffer terrible abuse,” he added.See also: Pope Francis brings a forceful new tone on sexual abuse casesPhiladelphia is one of the cities where the scandal was most serious in the 1980s.One rare criticism of the pope during his six-day trip to Washington, New York and Philadelphia, which ends on Sunday with a giant open-air mass, was that he did not have such a meeting on his public agenda.Without the audience, victims of the sex abuse scandal would have been extremely disappointed.
