28 The Nigerian is a very tempting prospect. He had plenty of games at the end of last season and looks sharp in pre-season. Whether he starts regularly is still in doubt but he’s keeping us on our toes and giving us a selection headache. 28 17. Naby Keita (Liverpool) – £7.5m (Midfielder) He may have been relegated with Swansea City last season but the Polish goalkeeper still managed to nab 157 points last term. He’s a great shot-stopper to start with. Another Molineux maestro in our bargain bin is winger Cavaleiro who scored nine and created 12 goals last year. Don’t let the muscular frame fool you, he’s got plenty of skill and guile, plus he’s quality with both feet. 9. Ricardo Pereira (Leicester City) – £5m (Defender) 28 He may divide opinion but you won’t see many players worth this getting six goals and 10 assists, plus a hatful of extra points for clean sheets. 3. Guaita (Crystal Palace) – £4.5m (Goalkeeper) The west Londoners’ wonderkid didn’t get the World Cup wildcard some felt he might but he’s now set for his first Premier League campaign and looks a great prospect at £6.5m given his contributions last term. Getting anywhere near the 16 goals and eight assists he provided will make him a steal. The Spanish star, 31, has finally signed for the Eagles and is an immediate upgrade on what they had between the sticks last season. For Getafe he kept 10 clean sheets and if he does anything like that in the Premier League he’ll be value for money. Will these cheap stars be the key to your Fantasy Premier League success this season? He created five goals for the second season in a row and that was with the Saints almost being relegated. Bertrand will want to prove a point this time out, especially after missing out on World Cup selection. 8. Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) – £5m (Defender) Now he’s at Fulham, the Serbian star has become a prime target. He’ll be an excellent initial buy but may need to be transferred if too many managers pick him. Injury stopped Hughes in his tracks last season, but he still got two goals and three assists and was being watched by Gareth Southgate with the potential for an England call-up. If he stays free of problems he could be a real hit for the Hornets. 28 19. Diogo Jota (Wolves) – £6.5m (Midfielder) 14. Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea) – £5.5m (Midfielder) After being allowed to ease into Premier League life, the Turkish striker began to hit his stride towards the end of the season. In a whole campaign he’ll hit more than the five goals he managed last time out. 7. Patrick van Aanholt (Crystal Palace) – £5.5m (Defender) 28 28 The hype around this man has been going for some time and Reds supporters maintain his star quality, despite a drop off in form last-term. But, with the players surrounding him at Anfield it’s surely hard for him to fail. 4. Jordan Pickford (Everton) – £5m (Goalkeeper) 28 28 5. Charlie Daniels (Bournemouth) – £4.5m (Defender) 28 10. Ruben Neves (Wolves) – £5m (Midfielder) It’s a risky one but he’ll start every game, get the odd bonus point, goal, and assist. But mainly Kante will be steady points throughout a season, with the added bonus of clean sheets. 28 28 He really came to life at the end of last season and has been given a much higher price. He is still worth a punt though with at least five goals in his last three seasons, and an assist or two. 28 With a fall in clean sheets, Daniels had his worst season so far in terms of FPL points but with the Cherries set for a freshen up under Eddie Howe we feel he will once again get amongst the goals and assists. 28 21. Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)- £6.5m (Midfielder) It will, of course, be harder for the Scottish midfielder this season but he’s more than capable of contributing to the Cottagers, and is worth a little punt. Previously wanted by Tottenham, many were slightly surprised it was the Foxes who managed to land Pereira. He’s an attacking full-back, who was once a winger, and has four goals and eight assists across the last two campaigns in Ligue 1 and the Primeira Liga. 28 28 Pass master and long-range goal scorer, the Portuguese star seems like a decent shot for FPL managers, although he maybe lacks a little in the assist department. 26. Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City) – £6m (Forward) 15. Ademola Lookman (Everton) – £5.5m (Midfielder) 2. Jonas Lossl (Huddersfield) – £4.5m (Goalkeeper) 28 What a season the young Merseysider had, and now he’s set to begin the campaign as Jurgen Klopp’s No.1 right-back. He can only improve so expect more than the one goal and two assists he managed in 2017/18. Back from RB Leipzig, the ex-Charlton star will either be a first-team star for the Toffees or move on to pastures new. If he remains at Goodison Park, or in the Premier League, then he’s someone to watch out for. 28 13. Ivan Cavaleiro (Wolves) – £5.5m (Midfielder) 28 28 18. Paul Pogba (Manchester United) – £8m (Midfielder) His Premier League spells with Blackburn and Queens Park Rangers seem like long distant memories but back again with the Bluebirds and will be vital to there success. 25. Leo Bonatini (Wolves) – £5m (Forward) 28 16. David Hoilett (Cardiff City) – £5.5m (Midfielder) The Portuguese 21-year-old hit 17 goals last-term, you would really have to be foolish not to consider him a bargain. 11. Will Hughes (Watford) – £5m (Midfielder) 12. N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) – £5m (Midfielder) With the Toffees rebuilding under Marco Silva, we can expect them to be a lot more consistent and this will do wonders for England hero Pickford’s point-scoring ability. 28 28 28 22. Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) – £6m (Forward) 24. Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) – £7m (Forward) The Dane isn’t the best shot-stopper in the Premier League but he kept the Terriers up and got a decent 135 points for his troubles. If he does the same again he’ll be good signing. Fantasy Premier League is just around the corner and as we approach the first deadline you’ve got big, big decisions to make.Get your team name ready, snap up your superstars and then snag yourself a bargain or two with these talkSPORT.com tips. 28 23. Cenk Tosun (Everton) – £7m (Forward) 28 28 He’s now changed position in FPL given his move further up the pitch under Roy Hodgson, if he carries on like last season he’s a smart pick up. Yep, another Wanderers player! And one which is too good to be true. For the time being he’s set to be their starting striker, although new boy Raul Jimenez will give him competition. After 12 league goals last year he’s got plenty of potential to be the bargain of the season. 28 6. Ryan Bertrand (Southampton) – £5m (Defender) Injuries have blighted the ex-Coventry City star but he knows where the back of the net is. Last year he still managed eight goals, his best tally in the last three seasons. You’re going to want Harry Kane or Mohamed Salah in your team, or maybe even both, and for that to work you need to have some cheap stars in your side.So who are this year’s bargains? We’ve taken a gander and reckon this lot will help you win your mini-leagues – and maybe even claim the big worldwide prize!1. Lukasz Fabianski (West Ham United) – £4.5m (Goalkeeper) 28 27. Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham) – £6.5m (Forward) One to keep an eye on, if he gets a loan move and is a regular start this man is a no-brainer. If he stays with the Blues, though, make sure you do due diligence before confirming for Matchday One. 20. Tom Cairney (Fulham) – £5m (Midfielder)
Ordinary South Africans Doing Amazing Things – Jozi Cats Rugby ClubBrand South Africa’s Play Your Part initiative makes emphasis on inspiring all South Africans to contribute to positive change, get involved and become active citizens, in order to contribute to the National Development Plan’s (NDP) vision 2030. The NDP defines active citizenship as equalising opportunities and enhancing human capabilities. It serves as an action plan for securing the future for all citizens as charted in the Constitution.Jozi Cats are one such example of being on the path of contributing to the Play Your Part mandate of inspiring and encouraging active citizenship. As a registered Non-profit Organisation (NPO), Jozi Cats is Africa’s first gay-inclusive, competitive rugby club, that stands for being a people association first, a sporting organisation second and a community change-maker third.Jozi Cats live and breathe its values at all times, on and off the field to inspire local and global sporting bodies such as the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, and Intersex (LGBTQI*) and GNC (Gender Non-conforming) communities.As Africa’s first gay and inclusive rugby club, Jozi Cats sit at the centre of the conversation on the continent as #ChangeMakers. Of the 55 African states recognised by the United Nations or the African Union, homosexuality is outlawed in 34 African countries.South Africa, the only country on the continent where sexual orientation is protected by the constitution. Jozi Cats exists to provide a safe space for all its diverse communities to enjoy the game of rugby, whether as a player, a referee, or spectator, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identification, age, race or ability.“Founded on 20th August 2015, we began our journey with a simple idea of creating a safe and harassment-free environment for everyone to enjoy the game of rugby, along with building a competitive, social and diverse club which welcomes players with all levels of experience who enjoy a love for rugby”, said Mr Chris Verrijdt; Chairman – Jozi Cats Rugby Club.In February 2016 Jozi Cats reached out to find support to recruit new members and increase the visibility of the club.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt Hutcheson, CCA, product manager, Seed Consultants, Inc.One issue that impacts soybean harvest in the eastern Corn Belt at some level each year is green stem syndrome. Green stem syndrome could be larger issue for the 2017 harvest because of latter planting dates in many areas. When green stem syndrome occurs, stems and leaves can remain green after pods have matured. As a result, while pods and seeds are mature and dry enough to be harvested, harvest operations can be slowed as combines have more difficulty dealing with stems and leaves that are still green. In addition to creating harvest delays, green stem syndrome can increase fuel consumption and result in shattering losses if growers delay harvest until stems have fully matured.The occurrence of green stems varies from year-to-year and can be affected by several factors, such as:• Viral infections • Insect feeding • Late planting • Drought stress • Application of fungicidesSuccessful management of green stem syndrome requires management practices that include timely planting, establishing adequate plant stands, irrigation, and controlling insects/pests. By making these management practices a priority, growers can minimize the likelihood that green stem syndrome will develop in their soybean fields. Although green stem syndrome slows down harvest, soybeans should be harvested as soon as pods are fully mature in order to minimize harvest losses due to shattering.

Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Nov 5 2018Modern technology has helped medical professionals do robot-assisted surgeries and sequence whole genomes, but hospital software still can’t handle daylight saving time.One of the most popular electronic health records software systems used by hospitals, Epic Systems, can delete records or require cumbersome workarounds when clocks are set back for an hour, prompting many hospitals to opt for paper records for part of the night shift.And it happens every year.”It’s mind-boggling,” said Dr. Mark Friedberg, a senior physician policy researcher at RAND, adding that in 2018, “we expect electronics to handle something as simple as a time change. “Nobody is surprised by daylight savings time. They have years to prep. Only, surprise, it hasn’t been fixed.”Dr. Steven Stack, a past president of the American Medical Association, called the glitches “perplexing” and “unacceptable,” considering that hospitals spend millions of dollars on these systems, and Apple and Google seem to have dealt with seasonal time changes long ago. Epic was founded in 1979, but some hospitals have used these electronic systems longer than others.Carol Hawthorne-Johnson, an ICU nurse in California, said her hospital doesn’t shut down the Epic system during the fall time change. But she’s come to expect that the vitals she enters into the system from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. will be deleted when the clock falls back to 1 a.m. One hour’s worth of electronic record-keeping “is gone,” she said.Hospital staff have learned to deal with it by taking extra chart notes by hand, but it’s still a burden, she said, especially if vitals change, or a patient needs something like a blood transfusion.Although hospitals often avoid the software glitches by turning the software off and switching to paper charts, it’s far from ideal because hospitals have evolved to become increasingly reliant on electronic systems, said Stack, an emergency physician in Kentucky.”When [electronic medical records] work, it’s wonderful,” he said, but when the system is turned off, doctors can’t use it to access patient records or order tests. Whiteboards are a thing of the past, and some staff members aren’t as comfortable with paper records because they’ve relied on electronic records their entire careers.”It’s an hour where you’re flying sort of blind,” Friedberg said.The one-hour pause slows everything down, which can cause patients to spend more time in emergency department waiting rooms, prompting some to go home before seeing a health care provider. That’s dangerous, Stack said.Not all hospitals turn Epic off, however. At Johns Hopkins Hospital, providers who need to check patients periodically through the night use a workaround. They enter vitals at 1 a.m. and then when the clock falls back an hour later and they have to enter new vitals, they list them at 1:01 a.m. They leave a note that it’s an hour later, not a minute later. That’s how the Cleveland Clinic does it, too.Related Stories’Traffic light’ food labels associated with reduction in calories purchased by hospital employeesIt is okay for women with lupus to get pregnant with proper care, says new studyHome-based support network helps stroke patients adjust after hospital discharge”I don’t disagree with the sentiment that we would like health IT systems to be much more sophisticated,” said Dr. Peter Greene, Johns Hopkins chief medical information officer. But there are plenty of other problems he’d like to see fixed first. “This particular aspect is not one that has caused us a lot of trouble.”Other electronic medical records systems may require similar workarounds, said Jennifer Carpenter, vice president of IT clinical systems at University Hospitals in Cleveland, which uses several electronic medical records systems. Cerner, another major electronic medical records company, was unavailable for comment, but many hospitals plan for Cerner to be down during the time change, too.When asked to comment on the glitches and workarounds, Epic spokeswoman Meghan Roh provided the following statement:”Daylight savings time is inherently nuanced for healthcare organizations, which is why we work closely with customers to provide guidance on how to most effectively use their system to care for their patients during this time period. We’re constantly making improvements and looking for opportunities to enhance the system.”But Friedberg pointed out that hospitals are locked into their electronic medical record systems because they’ve invested so much money in them. And it would cost even more to convert and transfer the records into a new system. As a result, there’s little incentive for software companies to improve their products, he said.”I shudder to think … what does it do with leap years?” Friedberg wondered.

Source:https://www.plos.org Apr 8 2019Owl monkey cytomegalovirus produces a decoy molecule A43 to evade detection and destruction by immune cells in their hosts, according to a study published April 4 in the open-access journal PLOS Pathogens by Ana Angulo of the University of Barcelona, and colleagues. As the authors note, the findings provide a novel example of an immune evasion strategy developed by viruses. An ingenious viral immune evasion tactic used by the CMV protein A43. Credit: Maria AnguloRelated StoriesNew protein target for deadly ovarian cancerMother calls for protein shake regulation after daughter diesHinge-like protein may unlock new pathways for cystic fibrosis treatmentThroughout evolution, cytomegaloviruses (CMVs) have been capturing genes from their hosts, employing the derived proteins to dampen immune responses and successfully persist within their hosts. Certain CMVs encode homologs of CD48, a molecule found on the surface of most of the leukocytes of the body. CD48 binds to the 2B4 receptor on certain immune cells such as natural killer cells, which play a pivotal role in the rapid recognition and control of viral infections. But the properties and biological relevance of the viral CD48 homologs have not been explored. In the new study, Angulo and colleagues have investigated for the first time the immunomodulatory potential of one of these viral molecules: A43, a CD48 homolog encoded by owl monkey CMV.The researchers show that A43 binds strongly to 2B4 and is capable of blocking its interaction with CD48. Moreover, the findings reveal how this viral protein interferes with the function of human natural killer cells. Taken together, these results not only underscore the importance of 2B4-mediated immune responses in controlling CMV infections, but also unveil CD48 as a new viral counteract mechanism for subverting immune surveillance. The authors propose that A43 may serve as a CD48 decoy receptor by binding and masking 2B4, thereby impeding effective immune control by cytotoxic lymphocytes during viral infections. According to the authors, the research highlights the potential of using the inhibitory molecule A43 to develop novel therapeutic tools to manipulate aberrant immune responses, such as those linked to autoimmune diseases.
Explore further © 2018 AFP French carmarker PSA Peugeot Citroen said Tuesday its acquisition of the Opel and Vauxhall brands last year helped drive sales up more than 42 percent in the first quarter. French carmaker PSA says global sales up 15% in 2017 The auto giant said it had seen a growth in sales volume around the world, “with a record 1.05 million cars sold”.As such the company is likely to surpass its expectations of selling four million cars in 2018, as announced by CEO Carlos Tavares in March.PSA last year became Europe’s second biggest carmaker after Volkswagen when it bought Vauxhall and German brand Opel from US giant General Motors.It said revenue jumped 42.1 percent to 18.2 billion euros ($22.2 billion) from January to March this year.Excluding last summer’s acquisition of Opel Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroen and premium brand DS saw revenue surge 13.3 percent to 10.2 billion euros in the first quarter.Tavares had also promised better sales on the Chinese market, which had been PSA’s weak spot and where sales had dipped 37 percent last year.In the first three months of 2018, the company’s fortunes in China began to shift, with a slight increase in sales of 1.8 percent.Of the company’s brands, Citroen was the best performing in China, the world’s biggest car market, while DS sales dropped nearly 58 percent in the Asian giant.In Europe, which is by far the company’s biggest market, sales jumped 8.7 percent, thanks mainly to Peugeot.Taking into account the figures for Opel Vauxhall in Europe, sales jumped 65.7 percent to over 770,000 units. Opel Vauxhall continues to weigh on profitability, however, even as PSA presses on with a major plan to turn around its results.”Push to Pass strategic plan and Opel Vauxhall turnaround plan are on track to make this strong performance a solid basis for the future,” chief financial officer Jean-Baptiste de Chatillon said.
