Koulibaly set to make £64m switch Man Utd

first_imgManchester United have sensationally wrapped up a deal for Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly according to Italian radio. Koulibaly The signing, worth around £60m, for the Senegalese player is all done, Italian journalist Fabio Santini has revealed. The Senegalese Serie A defender has been on Manchester United’s radar for a number of transfer windows but a deal never materialised1The Senegalese Serie A defender has been on Manchester United’s radar for a number of transfer windows but a deal never materialisedCredit: AFPThe Red Devils have had the Senegalese 28-year-old on their radar for a number of transfer windows. The latest reports now suggest that Kalidou will be a United player come the summer. Santini told TV show Il Processo on the station 7 Gold: ”Napoli will sell Kalidou Koulibaly to Manchester United for a figure of around 70-75m Euros. It seems all done”. He went on to add: ”Naturally, such a deal will be closed only in June and certainly not in January in the winter transfer window”. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad have suffered tremendously when it comes to their defence so adding Koulibaly will no doubt bolster their back line. Loading… Harry Maguire joined the squad at the start of the season on a deal worth £80m, but the centre-back not been able to overturn the weakness at the back. Although United were back to their best over the weekend with a 4-0 thumping victory over Norwich, Maguire believes inconsistency has been the team’s biggest issue. He told reporters after the win: ”Our problem has been inconsistency. ”We have played two good games and one bad game and it has not been good enough in terms of that. We are not getting carried away. It was a good performance, clean sheet,win but we have to go again on Wednesday and get another good result.

Maguire recently returned from injury but has said he is ready to go again.

Your Body Talks to Itself

first_imgProteins form large communications network to keep the body in sync with the biological clock.A biological clock would do no good if the organs and tissues of the body could not sync up with it. How would your day go if your brain was wide awake when your liver or digestive tract were trying to get some sleep? Bad things can happen when the body gets out of sync. But to stay in sync, the organs and tissues need the ability to communicate.Researchers have “identified a system of communication networks that exists among organs and tissues that regulate metabolism,” according to a press release from the University of California, Irvine, where a team is making “a detailed ‘atlas’ illustrating how the body creates and uses energy, and how imbalances in the networks may impact overall health.” They just published their work in the journal Cell.Lead author Paolo Sassone-Corsi, Donald Bren Professor of Biological Chemistry at UCI’s School of Medicine, first showed the circadian rhythm-metabolism link some 10 years ago, identifying the metabolic pathways through which circadian proteins sense energy levels in cells.“The human body is a complex, beautifully integrated system that functions at optimum efficiency when the networks are in balance,” said Sassone-Corsi, director of UCI’s Center for Epigenetics and Metabolism. “When this system is disrupted through misalignment among organs, the body will function at a less-than-optimum level, which may lead to disease. We are presenting a map that illustrates how to achieve the best health possible through proper balance and homeostasis.”We have some responsibility to maintain this balance. High-fat diets, for instance, can “induce misalignment among the network clocks and can trigger inflammation, which has been linked to major diseases and can affect lifespan.” But the body comes equipped with communications networks that take care of background tasks without our conscious knowledge, and do the best they can with what we feed them.The researchers examined a variety of genetic clocks – ranging from those in blood serum, the liver and muscle to those in the brain’s prefrontal cortex and hypothalamus, as well as in brown and white body fat. The resultant atlas maps the connections among various organs and tissues, which together make up the so-called body clock that governs day-night patterns of metabolic activity. The team then tested the connections to see how a high-fat diet in mice scrambled the body’s fine-tuned metabolic patterns and rewired the communication and coordination among clocks.This article illustrates how Darwinian evolution cannot hope to build complex, interactive systems. What’s the chance of getting a rare beneficial mutation (if one could be demonstrated) that would work with an existing system? Most likely, it would disrupt it, and be eliminated if it didn’t kill the host. What good is a new signal arising by mutation if there is no receiver that understands it? It would be like inventing a telephone with only one end. Who ya gonna call?In his book Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition that Life Is Designed, Dr. Douglas Axe, a biochemist who worked at Cambridge University, discusses “functional wholes” made up of multiple parts working in a hierarchical structure. Such systems cannot arise piecemeal because they depend on parts at other levels. The whole system needs “functional coherence” to work. Life is filled with functional wholes of amazing complexity, such as the “beautifully integrated system” of “communications networks” described here. Read the book to become convinced that an intelligently Designer (whom Doug Axe does not hesitate to identify as the Creator God) is to be thanked and marveled at for His artistry.(Visited 349 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Lumbar spinal surgery- series

first_imgNormal anatomyThe spine is made of bones (vertebrae) separated by soft cushions (intervertebral discs).IndicationsLumbar (lower back) spine disease is usually caused by herniated intervertebral discs, abnormal growth of bony processes on the vertebral bodies (osteophytes), which compress spinal nerves, trauma, and narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal column around the spinal cord.Symptoms of lumbar spine problems include:pain that extends (radiates) from the back to the buttocks or back of thighpain that interferes with daily activitiesweakness of legs or feetnumbness of legs, feet, or toesloss of bowel of bladder controlIncisionThe surgery is done while the patient is deep asleep and pain-free (general anesthesia). An incision is made over the lower back, in the midline.ProcedureThe bone that curves around and covers the spinal cord (lamina) is removed (laminectomy) and the tissue that is causing pressure on the nerve or spinal cord is removed. The hole through which the nerve passes can be enlarged to prevent further pressure on the nerve. Sometimes, a piece of bone (bone graft), interbody cages, or pedicle screws may be used to strengthen the area of surgery.AftercarePatients usually require physical therapy to optimize spinal mobility after lumbar spine surgery. Results are variable depending on the disease treated.Review Date:4/16/2013Reviewed By:C.

Halifax firm suspends Old Harry oil exploration in Gulf of St Lawrence

first_imgHALIFAX – Halifax-based Corridor Resources Inc. (TSX:CDH) says it has suspended exploratory work on the Old Harry project in the Gulf of St. Lawrence for the foreseeable future.In a news release issued Monday, the company says it has completed a geotechnical analysis and has determined that it wouldn’t be “prudent” to continue with additional capital spending, and as a result is suspending all further technical work and expenditures.The Old Harry site is located about 80 kilometres off the southwest tip of Newfoundland in an area that straddles the Newfoundland and Labrador-Quebec border, and has been previously thought to hold significant oil and gas reserves.But Corridor says its analysis has determined more complexity than previously suggested.The company says it now believes the prospect could be more “gas prone than oil prone” and the overall quantities could be less than originally estimated.Corridor says it has determined that a three-dimensional seismic survey should be conducted before an exploration well is drilled, and adds that it has been unable to attract a joint venture partner.“As a result of the foregoing, Corridor has determined there is no longer a viable path to drilling an exploration well on the prospect before the current exploration licence on the Newfoundland side expires in January 2021,” the news release states.“Corridor has not received interest in the Old Harry prospect from many international companies. In our view, this was due to a higher cost environment related to uncompetitive taxes and an increasingly cumbersome and unpredictable regulatory approval process in Canada.”In past years the exploration work has been the subject of protests by environmental groups opposed to potential drilling in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.The Save Our Seas and Shores Coalition and other environmental and First Nation groups have called for a moratorium to prevent offshore oil drilling over concerns of the potential effects a spill would have on the area’s sensitive ecology.The company still holds exploration licences with both the Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec governments.last_img read more
