This Mashup Of Miles Davis And LCD Soundsystem Is Honestly Perfect

first_imgSometimes, two pieces of music were just meant to be one. That is the case for LCD Soundsystem’s “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” and Miles Davis’ soundtrack to the 1958 film, Ascenseur Pour l’Échafaud. One clever YouTube user mashed up the two tracks, amazingly combining the two pieces of music by simply playing them at the same time.With no editing tricks whatsoever, it’s remarkable how Davis’ improvised trumpet lines fit in with the brooding LCD Soundsystem ballad. It forces the listener to ask themselves, “gee, why doesn’t LCD Soundsystem have a trumpet player?” If James Murphy decides to add one for their performances next summer (they have one booked thusfar), you’ll know where he got the idea.Enjoy this beautiful Miles Davis and LCD Soundsystem mashup video below.last_img read more

Russell appeal hearing set for May 8

first_imgTHE appeal brought against West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) is set to be heard by an Anti-Doping Appeal Tribunal on the 8th of May.Russell was issued with a one-year ban in February of this year after a specially convened tribunal ruled that the cricketer was guilty of being negligent in filing his whereabouts on three separate occasions within a 12-month period in 2015.The violation equates to a failed drug test under World Anti-Doping regulations.The player was, however, not given the full sanctions which could have resulted in a two-year suspension after his attorney urged the tribunal to keep in mind the player’s history of complying with testing protocols in the past.JADCO, however, earlier this month signalled its intention to appeal for a tougher sentence for the player, citing sufficient evidence being presented for the maximum penalty being issued.The members of the appeals tribunal will be Justice Karl Harrison (Retired) – Chairman, Justice Marva McIntosh (Retired) – Vice Chairman Dr Kurdell Espinosa – Member, Dr Audley Betton – Member, Dr Maria Smith – Member.The hearing will be held at the Jamaica Conference Centre. Russell is once again expected to be represented by attorney Patrick Foster.last_img read more

Nobel laureate discusses astrophysics, cosmology

first_imgMany scientists now believe that the universe is expanding at an accelerating pace, but this phenomenon was first discovered by Adam Riess, a Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist. Riess spoke at Bovard Auditorium on Monday about measurements of distant supernova that led to his discovery as part of the USC Dornsife Irene McCullouch Distinguished Lecture series.“The reason I got into this field was to answer profound questions like when did the universe begin,” Riess said. “I wanted to devise and perform real science experiments to answer these.”Riess has held the Bloomberg Distinguished Professorship, the Thomas J. Barber Professorship of Physics and Astronomy and the Krieger-Eisenhower Professorship of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University. He is also a senior member of the science staff at the Space Telescope Science Institute.Along with Brian Schmidt and Saul Perlmutter, Riess received the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics for providing evidence that supported the phenomenon. The scientists were also awarded the 2015 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics and shared the $1 million Shaw Prize in Astronomy in 2006. Along with his other awards, Riess was also honored with the Albert Einstein Medal in 2011 and the 2008 MacArthur Fellowship.According to Riess, one of the most important unsolved problems in cosmology and astrophysics is understanding the unexplained and mysterious nature of dark energy. While discussing the discovery of the accelerating universe, Riess explained that the farther away a galaxy is from us, the faster it will appear to recede.“The key is to measure how far away the galaxies are and how fast they recede from us,” Riess said. “In particular, measuring distance is the hardest thing to do in space.”The distances on earth are measured using various methods such as parallax, lighthouses, foghorns and objects of known size. However, these methods involve human creations, so in space, distance measurement uses the standard candle approach.“A galaxy has millions of stars that have known luminosity and can be used as standard candles,” Riess said. “When one of these stars explodes, it could be as bright as 4 billion times the luminosity of the sun. In addition, the inverse square law states that intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source of that physical quantity.”The other property that Riess and his team needed to measure is the speed at which the galaxies are rushing away from the earth. They did so by looking at the nature of the light coming from distant objects.“A supernova emits light at known wavelengths, and because of the expansion of space, the wavelengths are stretched [and] it gets redder,” Riess said. “This redshift measures the apparent recession velocity of the galaxies.”The Hubble Constant, H0, which is the measured slope or the linear relation between the velocity and distance, gives the present expansion rate of the universe. If the universe would contract instead of expand, then this slope would be negative.According to Riess, we can measure that expansion rate by using the Hubble Constant. By taking the inverse of the rate, the approximate age of the universe can be calculated.“It is not very likely to stare at one galaxy and find a supernova,” Riess said. “However, if you stare at 100 galaxies for one year, you are likely to see a supernova, and if you stare at 1,000 galaxies, you will see 10 supernovae in a year.”Riess studied four supernovae in his thesis. He discovered accelerating expansion and dark energy in 1998 and confirmed it with more distant supernovae from the Hubble telescope. In 2009, they could find tens of supernovae at greater distances.“The supernovae slowly showed us that the universe was decelerating before it slowly started accelerating,” Riess said. “So we removed both models that we thought we were choosing between and ended up with this new model when the universe began to accelerate five billion years ago.”The reason for the acceleration of the universe remains unknown. Riess and his team have hypothesized that the source is vacuum energy, also known as the cosmological constant, dynamical dark energy or modified gravity. They also expect to learn more about the nature of dark energy in the next decade from a spate of different measurements, including a refurbished Hubble Space Telescope.last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Tyler Lockett, Robert Woods, Emmanuel Sanders more WRs among key Week 12 active/inactives

first_imgThe Week 12 fantasy WR rankings are filled with question marks due to injuries, including Tyler Lockett, Robert Woods, Emmanuel Sanders, Julio Jones, Phillip Dorsett, Mohamed Sanu, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, Deebo Samuel, Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Sterling Shepard, and Deebo Samuel. All of those injuries have further sleeper implications, especially in a few favorable matchups. We have the latest injury updates below to help with your Week 12 start ’em, sit ’em decisions.For the latest news on banged-up TEs Evan Engram, George Kittle, Delanie Walker, and David Njoku, click here; for news on ailing RBs, such as James Conner, Jordan Howard, Devonta Freeman, and more, click here. Follow us for more news and updates on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. WEEK 12 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerTyler Lockett injury updateLockett, who’s now being listed with a shin injury, was officially limited in Seattle’s Wednesday practice. Lockett’s status was in doubt after he sustained an injury that kept him two days in a San Francisco hospital in Week 10 before the Seahawks’ bye.Seattle’s passing offense gets a great matchup against the Eagles’ brutal secondary in Week 12, so if Lockett is back, he’s locked in as a strong WR1 play. DK Metcalf should start in fantasy leagues, too, while Josh Gordon only has some upside worth playing if Lockett is out.MORE WEEK 12:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSWill Robert Woods play Week 12?After Woods was a late scratch Sunday night due to personal reasons, he’s yet to return to the Rams. His status for Week 12 is uncertain, while the Rams look to be getting Brandin Cooks back from concussion.(Update: Multiple reports indicate Woods has returned to the Rams and will practice Thursday.)Josh Reynolds would start in three-wide sets if Woods missed out again, but with the way this offense is going, the only WR you can feel good about against Baltimore on Monday Night Football is Cooper Kupp. Woods and Cooks both will fall in WR3/FLEX territory if active.WEEK 12 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endEmmanuel Sanders injury newsSanders hasn’t missed a game yet with his ribs injury, but he missed practice Wednesday. It’s a cartilage injury that Sanders already has aggravated in a game once, so maybe the 49ers will hold him out in hopes of a more full healing. San Francisco hosts Green Bay on Sunday night.The prime-time game makes relying on Sanders this week even tougher, and the chances of him having to leave early due to re-injuring the cartilage seem too high to want to play him. Deebo Samuel, who also missed Wednesday’s practice, should start in fantasy leagues if Sanders is out.WEEK 12 DFS LINEUPS: FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | Y! cash | Y! GPPJulio Jones injury statusJones missed Wednesday’s practice with a foot injury. He’s been on the early-week injury report before this season and not missed time. This should be just another blip on the radar unless his absence continues later in the week.(Update: Jones was back at practice Thursday.)Jones should be saving his energy to torch Tampa Bay’s terrible pass defense. Regardless of Jones’ status, Calvin Ridley is a strong WR2/3 play in fantasy leagues this week, too, with Russell Gage a possible PPR FLEX play.MORE WEEK 12 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderPhillip Dorsett, Mohamed Sanu injury newsDorsett and Sanu both missed New England’s practice Wednesday. Dorsett was concussed Sunday, while Sanu has an ankle injury that NBC Sports Boston reports could keep him out multiple games.(Update: Dorsett could be cleared by Sunday, according to The Athletic.)N’Keal Harry would be thrust into WR2 duties if both of his teammates missed Sunday’s game against Dallas, while Jakobi Meyers would feature in three-WR sets that New England uses frequently. Both rookies would be usable as FLEX plays if the normal starters are out.JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson injury updateSmith-Schuster hurt his knee while being concussed last Thursday night, while Johnson also sustained a concussion that caused him to bleed temporarily. JuJu hasn’t returned to practice and isn’t expected to play this week against the Bengals, but Johnson was already back on the practice field Wednesday.Johnson is still in concussion protocol, but he shapes up as Pittsburgh’s No. 1 WR Sunday in Cincinnati assuming JuJu can’t make it back to the field. James Washington would also play in two-wide sets. While we don’t trust Mason Rudolph, both Johnson and Washington have enough big-play potential to use as FLEX plays if JuJu is out.Deebo Samuel Week 12 statusSamuel missed Wednesday’s practice due to a shoulder injury. As Kyle Shanahan said about George Kittle, Matt Breida and Sanders, too, he believes it will “come down to the wire” for Samuel. San Francisco hosts Green Bay on Sunday night.Samuel would be a strong WR3 play in fantasy with back-to-back 100-yard games if he plays and Sanders is out. But if both miss out, Kendrick Bourne is likely to see the most WR targets, while Dante Pettis and Richie James will also feature as punt plays for DraftKings Showdown contests.When will Auden Tate be back?Tate (neck) was carted off the field last week and not surprisingly missed Wednesday’s practice. There hasn’t been a more concrete update of Tate’s health going forward, although it seems unlikely he’ll play in Week 12 against the Steelers.(Update: Tate missed Thursday’s practice.)We wouldn’t touch any passing game options for Cincinnati outside of Tyler Boyd and maybe Tyler Eifert for Sunday against Pittsburgh. Alex Erickson will be the No. 2 WR if Tate is out, with John Ross (clavicle) not eligible to return until Week 13.Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor injury newsJeffery (ankle) was limited Wednesday and Thursday after not practicing last week before missing Week 11 against New England. Nelson Agholor (knee) didn’t practice at all Wednesday or Thursday. Philly hosts Seattle on Sunday at 1 p.m ET.The Eagles would be forced to start Mack Hollins and JJ Arcega-Whiteside at WR if the two starters missed out. Arcega-Whiteside presents more big-play upside while Hollins would have more PPR value. It would probably be a big Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert day in the scenario that both Jeffery and Agholor are out. Sterling Shepard concussion updateShepard practiced in full Wednesday but has yet to clear concussion protocol. New York plays in Chicago on Sunday at 1 p.m ET.If Shepard is back, it probably kills Darius Slayton’s fantasy value. Golden Tate remains the best play in this receiving corps against an overrated Bears defense, and while Daniel Jones isn’t in play this week, Shepard’s return can only help him.last_img read more

Panel: Proof needed to cancel insurance

first_imgBy The Associated Press SANTA ANA – A state appeals panel ruled that insurers cannot rescind health policies unless they can show that policyholders willfully lied on their insurance applications or prove that companies investigated applications before issuing coverage. Monday’s unanimous decision by a panel of the 4th District Court of Appeal returned to a lower court the case involving car accident victim Steve Hailey, who lost coverage after insurer Blue Shield found inaccuracies in his insurance application. The lower court was to decide whether the Hailey family intended to deceive Blue Shield and whether Blue Shield acted in bad faith by “blindly” accepting their application and taking their premiums until Steve Hailey’s medical bills got too high. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonThe panel’s ruling also requires Blue Shield to pay Hailey’s appellate costs. The decision is the latest blow to California insurance companies’ cancellation practices. In recent months, state agencies have fined, cited and sued the state’s major health insurers for canceling coverage for policyholders who accumulate costly claims. Michael Nutter, a lawyer representing the Haileys said Blue Shield is “going to need to show – which I don’t think they ever can do in this case – that the Haileys willfully misrepresented something.” But Blue Shield spokesman Tom Epstein said the insurer would prove that “our underwriting was appropriate and that the Haileys misrepresented numerous important facts on their application.” Blue Shield rescinded Steve Hailey’s policy after authorizing more than $450,000 worth of hospital and other medical care. The insurer also demanded that he repay more than $104,000 it spent on his behalf. Blue Shield had contended that Hailey lied on his application about preexisting conditions, failed to disclose a recent emergency room visit and shaved about 45 pounds off his weight. But Steve Hailey’s wife testified that she filled out the application for the family and mistakenly believed that it was asking for information about only her health. The panel’s decision follows a lawsuit filed earlier this month by the state against Blue Shield, which it accused of canceling health coverage for sick people to avoid paying their medical bills. That suit seeks $12.6 million in fines while contending the insurer committed more than 1,200 violations of claims-handling laws and regulations, resulting in more than 200 people losing their coverage after they submitted claims. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

IT MUST BE CHRISTMAS! BUST UP IN SHOP OVER LAST SPROUTS!

first_imgIT’S supposed to be the season of goodwill.And it usually is…until you’re involved in a stand-off…over the last BRUSSELS SPROUTS! (even when they’re not!)That’s what happened in Aldi in Letterkenny when a major misunderstanding almost led to fisticuffs. A shopper at their store off the Oatfield roundabout, shocked at the price of 24cents for a net of fresh sprouts, started chucking them into her trolley as if they contained gold bullion.But to be fair, she said to a friend: “I’ll get some for XXXX, XXXX, and XXXX” naming a few of her pals.She obviously thought she was doing someone a good turn.This was NOT being seen this way however by another (younger) woman standing behind. Annoyed that she might not get her hands on the cheapest sprouts this side of Brussels, the second woman scowled: “Ah for f*** sake, would you leave some for the f***ing rest of us.”This was, of course, very embarrassing for all concerned – not least the silly woman trying to start a row over sprouts…when she realised there was another massive box of sprouts below.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThis story was written and researched by a donegaldaily.com journalist.

Fernandes confident in interview but is coy over Hughes’ fate

NBA Finals Preview LeBron vs Curry vs Everybody Else

In the NBA, superstars command so much attention — and affect their teams’ fortunes so deeply relative to other sports — that it’s difficult to resist advertising a playoff series as Star A versus Star B, with teammates and coaches taking lesser billing. Sure enough, this year’s finals bout between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers is already being touted as a struggle between Stephen Curry and LeBron James.That’s usually not a terrible prism through which to view things. Since 1985, the star — defined as the best player available to a team for the series in question, according to wins above replacement (WAR) during the regular season — with the better individual numbers1As measured by leveraged points above replacement. in the playoff series itself has carried his team to victory about two-thirds of the time.In other words, as go the stars, very often so go their teams. But even if James outplays Curry, this series could land in the other third — with a Warriors win — because Golden State has such an edge in the supporting cast department.To judge the delicate balance between star power and sidekick strength, I used Basketball-Reference.com’s playoff data going back to 1985, looking at how much of any given series’s outcome can be explained by the quality2According to a multiyear Statistical Plus/Minus talent projection. of a team’s leading man and that of his supporting cast. According to relative importance, the difference in talent suiting up alongside each star in a series is roughly 2.2 times as important to the series result3Including the margin of games by which the series was won or lost. as the talent disparity between the stars themselves.How well does that mean James will need to play to offset the difference between his Cavs teammates and Curry’s Warriors? If each team followed the distribution of minutes used to generate our Real Plus-Minus series projection (see table above), James would need to put up numbers in the 99th percentile of all single-series star performances for Cleveland’s win probability to overcome the quality of Curry’s teammates and break even against Golden State.It’s a tall task, although one James is certainly capable of. Since 1985, he owns four of the 10 best star turns in a playoff series, all of which would be enough to help the Cavs topple the Warriors. (And that doesn’t even factor in the possibility that Curry could be held below his usual numbers, in which case a brilliant series from James would be even less necessary.) But it may well take an individual effort of that magnitude from James for Cleveland to snap its long pro sports title drought. read more
