first_imgJuventus lift Italian Cup ROME (AP): Juventus secured the first title of a possible treble by winning the Italian Cup with an authoritative 2-0 victory over Lazio in the final yesterday. Dani Alves gave Juventus an early lead in the first half with a volley, following a long cross from Alex Sandro. Then Leonardo Bonucci was left unmarked to tap in following a corner in the 25th minute. Juventus can clinch the title this weekend, before facing Real Madrid in the Champions League final on June 3. The Bianconeri became the first club to win three straight Italian Cups and brought their record title collection to 12 in the competition. Huddersfield one win away from EPL SHEFFIELD, England (AP): Huddersfield are one victory away from a place in England’s top division for the first time in 45 years after advancing to the second-tier League Championship play-off final yesterday. The team, managed by Germany-born American coach David Wagner, beat Sheffield Wednesday 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out, after the two-legged semi-final match finished 1-1 on aggregate. Huddersfield will play Reading in the play-off final at Wembley Stadium on May 29. Huddersfield, the English champions each year from 1924-26, were last in the top flight in 1972. Reading were demoted from the Premier League after the 2012-13 season. Man United draw again SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP): Sergio Romero showed Manchester United will be in safe hands in the Europa League final by saving an early penalty and producing many other great stops in a 0-0 draw at Southampton in the Premier League yesterday. Filling in for the rested David de Gea, the Argentina goalkeeper tipped aside Manolo Gabbiadini’s sixth-minute spot kick that was awarded for a handball against Eric Bailly, even though video replays the contact was outside the area. Romero was busy early in the second half as he preserved his clean sheet for United, which fielded a slew of fringe players. Monaco win French league title PARIS (AP): Monaco sealed their first French title since 2000 and eighth overall yesterday after goals from teenage striker Kylian Mbappe and Valere Germain secured a 2-0 win over Saint-Etienne. With one match left to play this weekend, Monaco have an unassailable six-point lead over second-place Paris Saint-Germain, the defending champions. Despite losing to Juventus in the Champions League semi-finals, Monaco have thrilled Europe with their attacking football, scoring 155 goals in all competitions and reaching 104 in the league, two more than PSG’s league tally last year. Led by the strike duo of Radamel Falcao and rising star Mbappe, Monaco averaged nearly three goals per game this season to end PSG’s four-year dominance. Unbeaten in the league in 2017, Monaco have also scored in their last 31 league games, a new record during a single season.last_img read more

That his journey was dedicated to men’s mental health was an acknowledgement that many of us are still trying to find our own railway line in life if you like.Along the way Brian made numerous videos which he posted on Facebook recalling the history of the area dotted by old station houses or viaducts.Many people decided to tag along with Brian on his journey of self-discovery.Brian Mc Daid celebrates with fellow walker Paddy Walsh in O Donnell’s, Burtonport after Brian completed a walk tracing the route of the Old Lough Swilly Railway Line from Derry to Burtonport. Photo By Mary RodgersThis reporter (and hopefully still friend of Brian!) is now sorry that he used the excuse of family commitments and the rapidly-approaching festive season pressures not to tag along.However several people did make it to Burtonport yesterday as Brian finally ended his two week walk of discovery. Among those there to greet he father-of-three was MEP Pat The Cope Gallagher, Cllr David Alcorn and Brian’s former work colleague Paddy Walsh.Paddy and Brian toasted the end of the journey with two glasses of well-deserved liquid refreshments.An altogether different journey of self discovery will be needed to find out exactly why they were drinking half-pints and not pints!Needless to say that and lots of other stories will be recounted in light of Brian’s little dander over several of Uncle Arthur’s dispatches over the festive season.

first_imgWe can usually recognize friends and acquaintances by their voices.  If we all have the same hardware, though, how is this possible?  The answer is in the vortex.  Sounds sci-fi, but researchers at the University of Cincinnati used knowledge of jet engines to explore the possibility that vortices may help solve the mysteries of the voice.    Vortices are not body parts; they are aerodynamic effects of airflow through the voice box (larynx).  If you could see them, they would look like rotating smoke rings.  The article says, “the larynx is one of the body’s least understood organs.”  Most researchers have studied the structure of the larynx, but Sid Khosla and his team looked at the airflow through it.  They knew that vortices around jet engines produce sound, and suspected that similar phenomena modulated the otherwise mechanical vibrations of the larynx, giving it tone and color.  As a result, they were the first to produce an animal model that could be used to explain the intricacies of voice production in humans.  Khosla found that “vortices may help explain why individual voices are different and can have a different richness and quality to their sound.”    Vortices can be produced by a number of mechanisms.  “This complexity produces a sound that makes my voice different from yours,” he said.  The team hopes that new insights into the aerodynamics of voice production may lead to more effective treatments for voice disorders.Good science, new knowledge with possible health benefits, and no evolutionary speculation.  Three cheers.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
