first_imgKissing the Blarney Stone, which involves hanging upside down from the battlements of Blarney Castle (shown) near Cork in Ireland, is meant to bestow eloquence and persuasiveness. Such claims are not known to have been put to the test in a clinical trial, but then not much is known about the rock itself. Some say it is made of Welsh bluestone, the same material used to make the monoliths of Stonehenge. Others say it was cleaved from the Stone of Scone, which forms the coronation seat used by the kings and queens of Scotland and Great Britain for hundreds of years. Other legends link it to the death of St. Columba and biblical figures Moses and King David. Now, some light has finally been shed on the stone’s mysterious origins by the chance find of a microscope slide in the Hunterian Museum of the University of Glasgow in Scotland. Intern Becky Smith was digitizing the mostly handwritten catalog of the museum’s 40,000 geological slides when she noticed one entry referring to a slide of the Blarney Stone. The slide had been acquired sometime between 1850 and 1880 by Victorian mineralogist Matthew Forster Heddle, but he doesn’t appear to have published anything about it. Analysis of the sample, which is cut thin enough to be transparent, by geologists at the museum reveals that it is not a bluestone, nor is it sandstone like the Stone of Scone. In fact, it is a 330-million-year-old carboniferous limestone typical of that corner of Ireland and contains fragments of fossilized brachiopod shells and bryozoans. Details of its properties remain elusive. Hunterian curator John Faithfull says he has kissed the slide, but the jury is still out on whether he has acquired the legendary “gift of the gab.”See more ScienceShots.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more

They didn’t start off the day well as in the morning session as Bairstow and Stokes frustrated them for almost the entire session and stitched a crucial 110-run stand between them. However, after lunch they came out all guns blazing and it was Ravinchandran Ashwin who tormented the English lower order by getting his 22nd 5-wicket haul in Tests.England were eventually bundled out for 255 and handed a massive 200-run lead. The visitors did well to jolt the home side early as both the openers were sent back cheaply. Anderson then removed Pujara through a peach of a delivery and that was all for them today. Kohli and Rahane then kept the English bowlers at bay and made sure they avoid further hiccup. The skipper has got to his fifty and Rahane would be itching to get back into form tomorrow.

They were jolted early and were reduced to 80 for 5 before the 110-run stand between Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes ensured that they did not concede a huge lead. Both of them missed out on their tons and that could very well be the decisive moment in the game.advertisementIndia got a lead of exactly 200 runs as Ravichandran Ashwin wrapped up the tail with another five-wicket haul. Jadeja and Jayant Yadav both bowled well to give him good support. INDIA ARE BATTING FIRST, they would be wanting to score quick runs and tire the England bowlers down. Broad has a sore feet and Ansari has a lower back issue, so the pressure will be on England. Let’s see how India bat. Stay tuned for their reply.(AP Photo)13.36 IST: Ashwin to Anderson, OUT! Anderson gone first ball, England fail to avoid the follow-on, trail by a massive 200 runs but of all RAVICHANDRAN ASHWIN GETS HIS 22ND TEST 5-FER! What a performance from the offie, yet again. Bowls a loopy delivery around middle, gets it to drift through the surface as Anderson gets back to punch it through the off side but misses and is rapped on the pads right in front of the stumps. Ashwin appeals and sees the finger going up. ENGLAND BOWLED OUT FOR 255! India have opted to bat again. Adil Rashid was England’s not out batsman on 32 #INDvENG England Cricket (@englandcricket) November 19, 201613.35 IST: Ashwin to Broad, OUT!! Ashwin has another! No reviews left which means Stuart Broad will have to walk back to the pavilion. Ash bowls a slider around middle and leg, skidding in with the angle. Broad gets back to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. A loud appeal follows and umpire Dharmasena gives it out. England still need 1 run to avoid the follow-on and trail by 200 runs!

Ansari comes down to have a chat and suggests there were possibly an edge and goes for the review. Replays confirm there was no bat there and he was hit on his front pad first. Ball Tracker shows three reds and Ansari has to go. Wonder why would you review that. The two noises were the ball hitting both the pads. England have lost both their reviews. Jadeja has his first wicket! Eng 234/8, trail by 221 runs12.52 IST: WICKET! Drama as Stokes reviews in vain! Floated on middle and off, Stokes comes forward to defend but is hit on his pads. The silly point collects the ball and joins the appeal. There is a loud noise for an lbw and Kumar Dharamasena upholds the appeal. Stokes comes down and has a word with Rashid and goes for the review. Replays are not conclusive enough to show that there was inside edge. It stays with the on-field call of out for an lbw call. Three reds and that meant Stokes has to go after a superb knock. Cook has a grim look on his face. Stokes slams his bat down as he reaches the dressing room. Even if they went with the inside edge, the catch was completed so he would have been out caught as well. Valiant knock by him. Eng 225/7, trail by 230 runs90.4: WICKET!

Even if there is, the catch is completed at silly point.12.24 IST: Shami to Stokes, FOUR! Top shot! Fuller on middle and leg, Stokes clips it through mid-wicket for a boundary. That is a superb shot, lovely timing. 12.17 IST: India decide to take the new ball. Umesh will have a crack with it first up. Eng 192/6, trail by 263 runs12.15 IST: Maiden over to start off with.

India began the day being over enthusiastic. There were overthrows, a review was taken desperately as Stokes and Bairstow did not offer as many chances. Both of them registered their respective fifties and mixed caution with aggression to frustrate the Indians further.Stokes and Bairstow shared a 110-run stand before a wicket fell at last. Bairstow was cleaned up by one that swung in very late for a hard working 53. Stokes is still out there and with the deficit still 264 runs, England will want him to eat into it as much possible.

Umesh Yadav provides a much-needed breakthrough! Anil Kumble in the dressing room is applauding, looks a happy man. It’s full and angling in to the batsman at 142 kph, Bairstow looks to clip it across the line but misses as the ball brushes the pads and deflects on to the stumps. Yadav jumps and then punches the air in joy. A vital 109-run stand has been broken and England still need 56 to avoid the follow-on. Eng 190/6, trail by 265 runs(AP Photo)2nd Test. 78.3: WICKET!

Another impressive knock this from the English keeper. Full and outside off, Bairstow looks to drive it through the off side but gets an outside edge through gully for a boundary. Bairstow has had a terrific year so far with 1215 runs from 14 matches and counting. He’s smashed 3 hundreds to go along with 6 half-centuries in 2016.

Concentrated— OptaJose (@OptaJose) November 18, 2017Leganes were defensively determined and dangerous on the counter-attack, Nordin Amrabat off-target from a raid forward in the 20th minute, but Cuellar’s error undid their good work just before the half-hour.Paco Alcacer’s radar was off as he whipped a ball into the area, but Cuellar’s attempt to parry clear spun back into danger and Suarez pounced to end his drought.Barca’s joy was almost immediately tempered as Gerard Pique picked up a booking to rule him out of next week’s clash with Valencia and Alexander Szymanowski brought a sharp save out of Ter Stegen before the break as Leganes stuck to their task.Ter Stegen was again called into action when Amrabat sent Beauvue clear seven minutes into the second half, but the Frenchman could only hit the keeper from close-range.Suarez was booked for a tangle with Cuellar, though the goalkeeper made the most of minimal contact, and the Barca star gleefully rubbed it in the goalkeeper’s face when he scored his second scrappy effort of the game shortly afterwards.Cuellar could count himself unlucky as he denied Alcacer’s shot, only to see the rebound fall to Suarez, whose acrobatic effort was deflected past his own goalkeeper by Ruben Perez.Ter Stegen smothered Amrabat to deny Leganes again soon after and the difference of luck could be summed up when Pique deflected Szymanowski’s cross goalwards, but straight into his goalkeeper’s hands.Beauvue blazed over unmarked from 12 yards as Leganes’ hopes of a comeback began to fade and Aleix Vidal failed to mark his return from an ankle injury when he blasted a rebound over, following a blocked Suarez effort.Cuellar spurned a driven Lionel Messi effort and denied Suarez a hat-trick on the follow-up, but the Argentine’s determination, despite a game spent on the periphery, led to the clincher in the final minute, Paulinho prodding in his fourth goal of the season to add a sheen to the scoreline that neither side particularly deserved. Key Opta stats:- Barcelona have just conceded four goals in LaLiga this season, their best start in terms of goals conceded after the first 12 games ever. Only one team conceded fewer in the first 12 games of a La Liga season (three, Atletico in 1995-96)- Only Lionel Messi (11) has scored more braces than Luis Suarez (5) in LaLiga in 2017. – Marc-Andre ter Stegen has made more saves than in any other game of the season in all competitions (7). – Only Loic Remy has scored as many goals as Paulinho in the last six minutes of the games in LaLiga this season (3).- Paulinho has scored as many goals as BBC (Bale, Benzema Cristiano) in LaLiga this season (4). read morelast_img read more

first_imgMONTREAL – A Quebec woman is taking legal action against her doctors after she delivered her 13-pound baby naturally in what court documents describe as a “traumatic and chaotic” childbirth.Documents filed in Quebec Superior Court on behalf of Anik Bourbeau and Pascal Lessard allege the baby was born with a permanently paralyzed arm and the mother was left with significant tearing and other damage following the 2010 birth.The documents allege the couple’s doctors failed to evaluate the size of the baby and recommend a caesarean section before Bourbeau gave birth, despite signs that pointed to the possibility of a large baby.They asking for $1.4 million in damages from the defendants, who include five of Bourbeau’s doctors and a hospital in Shawinigan, Que.The baby’s birth “took place in the context of a traumatic and chaotic birth that caused numerous damages to the plaintiffs, notably a permanent paralysis to the [baby’s] right arm,” the document reads.The amount claimed includes general damages, loss of income for both parents as well as future medical costs for the child.None of the claims have been tested in court. The law firm representing the defendants declined to comment, citing confidentiality.The documents allege the medical professionals did not do an ultrasound on Bourbeau to check the size of the baby despite her medical history, which included a difficult pregnancy in the past.“The defendants omitted to proceed to an evaluation of the child’s size, while the clinical evolution of Madame Bourbeau demanded it,” it reads.Doctors “did not obtain free and informed consent” from Bourbeau regarding the method of delivery and did not recommend a C-section despite the fact she had clearly expressed her willingness to have one, the document claims.According to the documents, the baby wasn’t breathing and weighed more than 13 pounds when he was delivered in December 2010.The case will be heard in Superior Court in May 2018.last_img read more

first_imgYesterday’s leaked renders of HP‘s upcoming Palm Topaz and Opal tablets are now being further fleshed out by some rumored specs.According to Engadget, who previously posted the leaked renders, the Opal will be the 7-inch webOS tablet, while the Topaz will be a 9-incher. The Opal will boast a TFT LCD running at an iPad resolution of 1024 x 768, while the Topaz will be in roughly the same ballpark.Since HP now owns Palm, speculation is that HP will squeeze some of their Beats audio processing into the tablets, as seen in their Envy line of laptops.Other rumors flying around include the notion that HP will give each webOS tablet owner “tens of gigabytes” of free cloud storage. Additionally, like previous Palm webOS devices, the Topaz and Opal will come with a larger version of the Touchstone for wireless charging, as well as “bump” functionality that will allow you to send media and documents between webOS tablets and phones by just knocking them together. You know, I hate to say it, but HP’s new tablets are both looking and sounding pretty good? Could the Opal and Topaz be the first bonafide challengers to the iPad‘s crown?Read more at Engadgetlast_img read more
