Bolt wants to inspire fans weary of doping

first_imgBy Mitch PhillipsUSAIN Bolt rocked his huge frame back into his too-small chair, wrapped his arms behind his head and prepared to deliver his well-worn defence after another bombardment of doping-related questions at his news conference on Thursday.Ahead of his return to London for this weekend’s Diamond League meeting the script was supposed to be all about his happy memories from 12 months ago when the Jamaican lit up the Olympic stadium with another superlative triple gold medal performance in front of 80,000 dazzled fans.Yet the number one topic was the recent positive dope tests on his fellow Jamaicans Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson as well as that of American Tyson Gay, leading one journalist to ask Bolt if the public could trust the fastest man in history.“How long have you been following Usain Bolt – maybe since 2008?” he said.“If you’d been following me from 2002 you would know I’ve been doing phenomenal things since I was 15.“I was the youngest person to win the world juniors at 15, I set a world youth junior record at 17, I’ve broken records in every race I’ve ever done so I’ve proven myself. You could say I’m underperforming right now!“I was made to inspire people and to run I was given a gift and that’s what I do. I’m going to continue running and using my talent and help the sport.”Bolt is long used to his role as his sport’s beacon of hope and with every failed test his position becomes more important to athletics’ credibility.Next month he will race the world championships in Moscow where his main rival is likely to be American Justin Gatlin, a twice-convicted doper now back in the big time.Powell and Gay, the fastest man in the world this year, will be watching from afar and working on their defence that their failed tests were the result of inadvertently taking contaminated supplements.Bolt was cagey when asked about the latest batch of positive tests and though he stopped short of condemning his rivals, he did issue a reminder of the principle that every athlete is responsible for what they put into their body.“I think there are a lot of details that are still to be discussed, a lot of things that haven’t been said so I’m just waiting to see what happens,” he said.“In life things happen and people make mistakes but as an athlete you have to be very careful and aware, it’s hard but that’s why you have a team to have to help you out with these things.”Powell was said to be on an incredible regime of 19 supplements, including some injectable, but Bolt, who said he had spoken to his compatriot and told him to “stay strong” said he trod a far safer path.“I have vitamins that I take, every athlete does, but I don’t really take supplements,” he said.“I work hard every day go out with one focus and don’t worry about other athletes.“I’m not going to stress about it (doping). I know I am clean and I just want to improve the sport and that is what I am going to do.“Definitely it’s going to set us back a little bit but I can’t focus on this I still have the worlds ahead of me and everyone is stepping up their game.”Bolt will run the 100metres on Friday in the final event of the night (20.48GMT) and return on Saturday as part of a Jamaican 4x100m relay squad.His best time of the year so far is 9.94seconds – pedestrian alongside his 2009 world record of 9.58 – but he has looked sharper over 200m where his 19.73 is world-leading.He says he is unconcerned as he seeks to regain the 100m title he lost to Yohan Blake in 2011 after he was disqualified for false-starting in the final.“I could have run faster at the national trials, the main aim was to go there and qualify,” he said.“I’ve had three weeks of solid training, technique work, speed endurance, working on my core. I’m feeling in great shape.“This year I wanted to try to break a world record but its been an up and down season. Hopefully tomorrow will put me on the right path to run fast at the worlds.”last_img read more

Apollon look to tame Lyon

first_imgApollon kick-off their Europa League group stage campaign with a hugely demanding encounter against last year’s semi-finalists Olympique Lyonnais at the GSP Stadium on Thursday (8pm).Like Apoel in the Champions League, the Limassol side have become somewhat regulars in the competition, having reached the group stages for the third time in five years.Sofronis Avgousti guided his side to the groups after defeating FC Zaria, Aberdeen and Midtjylland respectively in the qualifiers, and will now face Lyon, Everton and Atalanta in Group E.A player who played a key part in Apollon’s qualification was Chambos Kyriakou but the homegrown midfielder has since been loaned out to Portuguese side Estoril. The Limassol club have strengthened however, loaning Brazilian youngster Allan from Liverpool and Argentinian striker Nicolas Martinez from Olympiacos. Defender Angelis Angeli has returned to normal training though is unlikely to feature while Avgousti is hoping that forward Antun Maglica, who played an important role in the qualifying rounds, will recover in time.The Apollon defence will have their hands full against a powerful attacking line-up. Lyon have one of the best frontlines in the competition with former Manchester United man Memphis Depay, ex-Chelsea winger Bertrand Traore and French international Nabil Fekir behind striker Mariano Diaz who arrived from Real Madrid in the summer.The French side are undefeated in their opening five Ligue 1 games, winning three of them which puts them in third position behind last year’s champions Monaco in second and big spenders Paris Saint-Germain who sit top after a perfect start. After dropping into the competition last season following their exit from the Champions League, the French side knocked out AZ, Roma and Besiktas before eventually falling to Ajax in the last four. It is worth noting that Lyon lost their last three away games in the competition last season.The GSP is also the scene of one of their most disappointing European nights, as they famously lost on penalties to Apoel in the Champions League Round of 16 in the 2011/12 campaign. Apollon press officer Fanourios Konstantinou concedes that his side “are the outsiders” but says that the team will “try to make things difficult for the French club”. As well as success on the continent, Apollon’s big aim is to win the Cypriot first division title, but their start to the season did not go to plan as they could only manage a 1-1 draw at Olympiakos Nicosia.In their two previous group campaigns, Apollon kicked off at home and won both times – they defeated French side Nice 2-0 in 2013/14 and then FC Zurich 3-2 in 2014/15. However, they remain their only two victories beyond the qualifying rounds. This summer, Apollon were immaculate on home ground in Cyprus, winning all three games against FC Zaria, Aberdeen and Midtjylland at the AEK Arena, and their fans will be hoping for that run to continue on Thursday.As they did throughout those games in order to get to this stage of the competition, Apollon’s supporters are set to turn up in huge numbers in the group stage. Around 8,000 fans are expected to make the short drive to the capital in what will be one of the toughest games in the club’s history.last_img read more

A global coral reef monitoring system is coming soon

first_imgCoral reef conservation efforts will soon get a major boost with a global monitoring system that will detect physical changes in coral cover at high resolution on a daily basis.The satellite-based system will enable researchers, policy makers, and environmentalists to track severe bleaching events, reef dynamiting, and coastal development in near-real time.The system will leverage Planet’s daily high resolution satellite imagery, running the data through cloud computing-based algorithms to map reefs and chart changes over time. Coral reef conservation efforts will soon get a major boost with a global monitoring system that will detect physical changes in coral cover at high resolution on a daily basis, enabling researchers, policy makers, and environmentalists to track severe bleaching events, reef dynamiting, and coastal development in near-real time. The satellite-based system — which is the product of a partnership between Paul G. Allen Philanthropies, Planet, Carnegie Institution of Science, University of Queensland, and the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology — will launch at five pilot sites this fall, before rolling out globally in 2020.“This system could be a game-changer for coral reef conservation,” Carnegie scientist Greg Asner, told Mongabay. “It will be the first large-scale monitoring system that can detect where reefs are changing thereby enabling direct action to mitigate losses.”Planet satellite image of reef off Moorea Island in Tahiti.The world’s coral reefs have been hard hit by a combination of rising sea temperatures, which trigger bleaching; coastal development that damages reefs directly and indirectly; unsustainable fishing practices, including overexploitation of key species and fish bombing; and run-off and sedimentation from agriculture, aquaculture, deforestation, and other forms of land use. Ocean acidification is another looming danger, threatening to undermine the very structural basis of reefs. Given the importance of coral reef ecosystems in supporting local livelihoods through fishing and tourism, mitigating coastal erosion, and housing up to a quarter of ocean biodiversity, there are deep concerns about these trends. But current systems for monitoring coral health are spotty, usually based on scuba or aircraft surveys — which are limited in extent — or blunt proxy data like sea surface temperatures, which don’t account for differences in resilience among coral communities.The new system will change that by combining technology with field survey data. The system will leverage Planet’s daily high resolution satellite imagery, running the data through cloud computing-based artificial intelligence (AI) that corrects for “distortions from the atmosphere, sun glint, materials in the water column and surface waves” and then applies algorithms from ocean researchers at the University of Queensland’s Remote Sensing Research Center to classify the reefs. Carnegie will then apply a change detection algorithm to the data, giving the system its the monitoring capability. Asner said the system will retain pixel history, eventually enabling researchers to potentially monitor changes over time, including coral recovery after bleaching events.Four representations of Heron Island on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

The upper right shows the partnership’s benthic data overlaid on UNEP-WCMC’s map. The lower left shows shows the partnership’s benthic data overlaid on a satellite image from Planet. The lower right show’s the Planet satellite image.In the first year, the project will produce an initial mosaic of coral reef sites globally and do validation at five sites: Heron Island on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Moorea in French Polynesia, Belize’s Lighthouse Reef, Hawaii’s Kaneohe Bay, and Karimunjawa, off the Indonesian island of Java. The initiative chose these sites because they “represent a variety of reef types and status from across the globe and where field verification data are readily available”, according to a statement from Paul Allen Philanthropies. The project will also develop a community engagement plan to work with researchers, conservationists, policymakers, and others to implement and share findings from the initiative. After that first phase, the initiative will scale the mapping from specific sites to entire regions and deploy the AI-based alert system. By the end of 2020, the project aims to scale the mapping from regions to the entire world, potentially enabling the first high resolution global reef monitoring system, rivaling what Global Forest Watch is doing for the planet’s forests and Global Fishing Watch endeavors to do for fishing on the high seas.Planet satellite image of Heron Island. “We need to know what is occurring in this hidden world of shallow coral reefs if we have any hope to save them,” said Art Min, vice president of impact for Paul Allen Philanthropies, in a statement. “Coral reefs cover less than 1 percent of the ocean surface and yet nearly 1 billion people and 25 percent of all marine life depend on them.”Planet satellite image of coral off Belize’s Lighthouse Reef. Taken March 28, 2018.Andrew Zolli, vice president for global impact initiatives at Planet, said the initiative could usher in a new era for coral reef managers and conservationists.“Seeing change is the first step in taking responsibility for it,” Zolli stated in a press release. “By putting the most complete, up-to-date picture of the world’s corals in the hands of scientists, conservationists, and communities, we hope to accelerate action on the coral crisis before it’s too late.” Article published by Rhett Butler Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Biodiversity, Climate Change And Coral Reefs, Conservation Technology, Coral Bleaching, Coral Reefs, Great Barrier Reef, Oceans, Remote Sensing, Satellite Imagery, Technology, Technology And Conservation, Wildtech center_img Popular in the CommunitySponsoredSponsoredOrangutan found tortured and decapitated prompts Indonesia probeEMGIES17 Jan, 2018We will never know the full extent of what this poor Orangutan went through before he died, the same must be done to this evil perpetrator(s) they don’t deserve the air that they breathe this has truly upset me and I wonder for the future for these wonderful creatures.

It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

Twelve passengers taken off jetliner

first_imgAMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) – Dutch F-16s escorted a Northwest Airlines flight bound for India back to an airport here Wednesday after the pilot radioed for help, and police arrested 12 passengers who had aroused suspicions, authorities said. Police spokesman Rob Staenacker said he could not disclose their nationalities or the nature of the suspicions against them, only that “12 people have been arrested.” An American passenger, who identified herself only as Alpa, told AP Television News she saw about a dozen people taken off the plane in handcuffs. While Flight NO0042 to Bombay was over German airspace shortly after takeoff, the pilot radioed for permission to return to Schiphol Airport and asked for an escort of jet fighters because some of the passengers were acting suspiciously, the Defense Ministry said. “A number of them behaved, in the opinion of the crew, in a suspicious manner,” said the ministry. “As a result, the captain asked to return to Schiphol.” A U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the subject, said crew members and air marshals observed the passengers trying to use cell phones and passing them among themselves while the airliner was taking off. “It was behavior that average passengers wouldn’t do,” the official said. The DC-10 was escorted back to Schiphol by two F-16s scrambled from a northern military airfield, the Defense Ministry said. Routine security measures were swiftly put into place. The plane was carrying 149 passengers, when it turned around after crossing the German border. A Northwest DC-10 has a normal seating capacity of 273. The Dutch National Terrorism Coordinator’s Office was informed, but said there was no reason to raise the national threat level, spokeswoman Judith Sluiter said. The flight was canceled until Thursday, and the passengers were put up in hotels, Northwest said. “It is the same as it was before – light threat,” said Sluiter. Like airports around the world, Schiphol raised the level of security two weeks ago when British police announced they had uncovered a plot to blow up several U.S.-bound commercial jetliners, but Kuypers said threat levels had returned to normal. Several alerts have been sounded since the terrorism plot was outlined in London. On Friday, a British plane made an emergency landing in southern Italy after a bomb scare, and the U.S. Air Force scrambled jets to escort a United Airlines flight from London to Washington as it was diverted to Boston. Wednesday’s security alert was the first at Amsterdam’s international airport since September, when a British Airways flight returned in similar circumstances. It turned out to be a false alarm.

Mahony leads centennial celebration of St. Benedict Church

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John Phillips “We started coming here a few months ago,” said Moctezuma, who attended the afternoon Mass with his wife and 6-year-old son. “When I saw that [the church] had been around for 100 years, I thought it shows strength. It’s like a rock of the community.” Longtime churchgoers echoed Moctezuma’s appreciation for the community. “I grew up in this church,” Montebello resident Richard Castillo said. “Today’s celebration is a culmination of a lot of hard work. It’s a celebration of our community. Even though we all can have fights with each other, or arguments. At a time like this, we come together as one people.” For Pastor Joseph Gallardo, a Mass with Mahony was a great way to usher in his new tenure, which he began one and a half months ago. “This is a great celebration of the past and the future,” said Gallardo, who was meeting Mahony for the first time. “I’m so happy our shepherd, Cardinal Mahony, could be here.” In Mahony’s sermon, he spoke of the necessity of inclusion and unity between different ethnicities, nations and individuals. “In our time, we can see what evil can result when people create barriers of all kinds,” Mahony told the crowd, referring to the Middle East. He brought the comparison home, to problems in the United States with discrimination and intolerance. “Where does the animosity come from? How does it keep going? We must understand the richness of diversity,” Mahony said. Mahony called for people from every ethnic group and nation to “build up a deep sense of unity” in order to overcome differences. St. Benedict Church had its beginnings with the arrival of two Basque Benedictine monks from the Sacred Heart Abbey in Oklahoma in the late 1800s. They came to administer to the 2,000 or so Basques, mostly shepherds, who lived in the area. Although it moved locations several times from its original spot, where the Montebello City Hall now stands, Father Leo Gariador celebrated the first mass at the initial building on Sept. 30, 1906.

MONTEBELLO – It was standing room only Saturday as more than 1,000 parishioners met Cardinal Roger Mahony in a special Mass celebrating the 100th anniversary of St. Benedict Church. Members of the congregation lined the walls, steps, balcony and hallways as they strained to hear Mahony’s words over crying babies and fidgety children. Some churchgoers had attended St. Benedict all their lives, while others were recent converts. The fact that the church was celebrating its 100th year convinced parishioner Adrian Moctezuma that he’d picked the right church in which to raise his family.last_img read more
