Championship round-up: Leeds end Cardiff hoodoo, Hull go top, while Bristol beat Wolves

first_img1 On a night with eight home wins and three draws, here are the results in full:Birmingham 0-0 BlackburnBrentford 0-2 HullBristol City 1-0 WolvesBurnley 3-1 FulhamDerby 1-0 QPRIpswich 2-0 BoltonLeeds 1-0 CardiffMiddlesbrough 1-0 RotherhamMK Dons 1-0 CharltonPreston 1-0 Nottingham ForestSheff Wed 0-0 BrightonReading 2-2 Huddersfield Alex Mowatt’s stunning long-range strike helped Leeds secure a first win under Steve Evans, when they beat Cardiff 1-0 at Elland Road.The Whites faced a Cardiff side who they have struggled to beat in recent years, with their last victory against the Bluebirds coming way back in 1984.With captain Sol Bamba suspended and Tom Adeyemi ineligible against his former club, Evans was forced into making changes for the visit of Russell Slade’s men.An uneventful first half saw Leeds gather momentum before the break, with forward Chris Wood shooting wide before his glancing header should have beaten goalkeeper David Marshall.Cardiff grew into the game in the early moments of the second half, before Mowatt’s moment of quality proved decisive. Mowatt found himself 25 yards out with no real options, so the 20-year-old academy product arrowed a 25-yard thunderbolt past Marshall, who could only watch it sail past him.Wood found himself one-on-one and he rounded the goalkeeper before firing into the side-netting and Cardiff continued to press, but the Whites held on for their first home win since March.Elsewhere, a late goal sealed three points for Hull, to put them top of the Championship with a 2-0 victory over Brentford.There were few first-half chances before the game came to life in the 63rd minute, as Andrew Robertson put CIty ahead from a narrow angle.With the match tight at Griffin Park, Harry Maguire’s desperate shot was spilled by David Button and Sam Clucas followed up to fire home after 87 minutes, to put the Tigers joint-top.Early pace-setters Brighton stayed level on points with Steve Bruce’s side, as they drew their third consecutive game, this time in a 0-0 contest at Sheffield Wednesday.Andre Gray showed his worth at Burnley, as the £9million striker netted twice in Burnley’s 3-1 win over Fulham.Gray, who signed from Brentford in the summer, scored a brace for the third match running before Ross McCormack continued his good form when he pulled one back for the Cottagers. Matt Taylor’s late strike secured the win, moving the Clarets up to second.Summer signing Stewart Downing scored his third goal since returning to Middlesbrough, as they beat Neil Redfearn’s bottom side Rotherham 1-0.Derby’s momentum under Paul Clement continued when Andreas Weimann’s second-half goal gave them an eighth win in ten matches, beating Chris Ramsey’s QPR 1-0 at the iPro Stadium.Strugglers Bristol City and MK Dons opened up the gap between the relegation places with 1-0 wins over Wolves and Charlton respectively.Sixth-place Birmingham extended their winless run to three matches as Gary Rowett’s men were held 0-0 at home to Blackburn.Reading are without a win in four matches now, after their 2-2 draw with Huddersfield Town at the Madjeski. The Royals came from behind twice, with Oliver Norwood and Ola John on target for the hosts. Jamie Paterson and Nahki Wells netted for the Terriers, who host Leeds in a West Yorkshire derby on Saturday.18-year-old Arsenal loanee Ainsley Maitland-Niles scored his first professional goal for Ipswich, as his and Brett Pittman’s strikes helped the Tractor Boys to a 2-0 victory at home to out-of-form Bolton.And finally, Eoin Doyle’s second-minute strike proved enough as Preston defeated Nottingham Forest 1-0.center_img Alex Mowatt was on target for Leeds in their win over Cardiff last_img read more

COUNCIL TO SUPPORT RELOCATION OF NATIONAL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

first_imgCllr Gerry McMonagleDonegal County Councillor Gerry Mc Monagle said is delighted with the support he received from his council colleagues for his motion calling on the Minister of Health to relocate the proposed National Children’s Hospital from the Saint James Hospital site in Dublin’s North Inner City to the a new site off the M50.Cllr Mc Monagle brought forward the motion after being approached by parents who have availed of services at the Children Hospital.They spoke of their concern of the problems with access they had experienced travelling to an Inner City Hospital with their children for treatment. Cllr Mc Monagle told the council about the disadvantages of the St James site in Dublin’s Inner City saying that there would be savings straight away of almost €200 million by relocating to the Connolly Hospital site.These were because of problems with this tight inner city site including excavations, relocation of existing services at St James during construction, Drainage problems and the speed of access to a site like St James would prove very difficult and slow due to traffic congestion not to mention the excavation of soil for the three Storey underground car park.He said this would be in contrast to the Connolly site which is located on a 145 acre site adjacent to the M50 Motorway with unlimited space for future expansion and easier access with extensive parking and co-location with Connolly Adult Hospital and the New Rotunda Maternity Hospital.Concluding Cllr Mc Monagle said “At the end of the day all I am trying to do is to get the best service we can provide for our sick children and their families and it makes more sense to build the National Childrens Hospital on a site that is giving maximum care and access to those children and their families. Parents do not need the added stress of traffic congestion and busy narrow inner city roads. “Approximately 75% of children with serious illness live outside the M50. Additional time with their sick child spent in City Centre traffic is unfair to these families and we all know it can be sometimes risky to travel with a sick child on public transport due to the risk of further infection”“I am hopeful that the Minister and indeed the incoming Government will heed the growing opposition to the St James site and relocate the National Childrens Hospital to the Connolly Hospital site.”Cllr Mc Monagle’s motion is outlined below.“We the Members of Donegal County Council call on the Minister of Health to reverse the decision to locate the National Childrens Hospital at St James Hospital and instead to Relocate the New Chidrens Hospital for all the children of Ireland at Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown. The Connolly Site offers 145 acres, vast space for expansion, easier access for the children of Donegal and extensive parking. The co-location with Connolly Hospital and the new Rotunda Maternity Hospital will result in better clinical outcomes and it will be cheaper and faster to build than on the St James site.”COUNCIL TO SUPPORT RELOCATION OF NATIONAL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL was last modified: April 7th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CLLR GERRY MCMONAGLEdonegalNational Children’s Hospitallast_img read more

Full Moon Has Magnetic Secret

first_imgPonder this under tonight’s full moon.  Scientists now say the moon once had a magnetic field stronger than Earth’s is now.It’s a big surprise.  How could the moon, much smaller than the Earth, have a strong magnetic field?  Yet it did, a new analysis of Apollo moon rocks reveals, according to Benjamin Weiss, a professor of physics at MIT.  In Science Magazine and other news outlets, he expressed his surprise that a body so small could generate this much power:Measurements of the intensity of the ancient lunar dynamo have shown that it was surprisingly intense and long-lived. (Science Magazine)It remains uncertain what might have powered this surprisingly intense lunar magnetic field. “It’s hard to understand how the moon’s magnetic field could be as strong as it seemed given how the moon has a very small core,” Weiss said. “The moon’s core is maybe one-fifth to one-seventh the radius of the moon, while Earth’s core is maybe one-half the planetary radius. This means the surface of the moon is much farther away from its core than you see with Earth. Since magnetic fields fall rapidly in strength with distance, it’s hard to understand how the moon could have had a magnetic field that was that strong all the way to its surface.” (Space.com)Q. Why is it so surprising that a lunar dynamo may have been so intense and long-lived? A. Both the strong intensity and long duration of lunar fields are surprising because of the moon’s small size. Convection, which is thought to power all known dynamos in the solar system today, is predicted to produce surface magnetic fields on the moon at least 10 times weaker than what we observe recorded in ancient lunar rocks. (PhysOrg)This unexpectedly strong field, now detectable only in remnant magnetism in lunar rocks, is challenging current theories of how magnetic fields are created by convection-driven dynamos in liquid cores.  Weiss said they are trying to think up “exotic” theories:There are other more exotic mechanisms that scientists have suggested could have powered the lunar dynamo.“One involves smacking the moon obliquely with large impacts from asteroids maybe a bunch of times,” Weiss said. “You could also use the fact that the moon’s spin wobbles over time, which is called precession, and it wobbled a lot more intensely in the past when it was closer to Earth, and that could also instill motion to power a dynamo. Both these mechanisms are not known in any planetary body today, and would represent new ways of generating magnetic fields.”In science, it’s not good to dream up special cases to save a theory.  Yet Weiss goes on: “Maybe there were multiple dynamo mechanisms operating at different times in lunar history,” he says, compounding the special pleading.  It seems that the dynamo theory has some serious reckoning to do to fit the observations:Much remains unknown about the moon’s magnetic field. “We still don’t know when the lunar dynamo turned off,” Weiss said. “There’s evidence it lasted until at least 3.3 billion years ago, and perhaps as long as 1.3 billion years ago, really pushing the limits of what we know can power the lunar dynamo.“Those dates don’t come from the magnetic field signatures in the rocks, but rather from consensus ideas about the age of the moon.  It would seem appropriate with this much surprise to consider alternative views.  At CMI, for instance, Dr. D. Russell Humphreys analyzed lunar magnetization, and found that no dynamo is necessary to explain the field.  The stronger-than-expected field is a problem for belief the moon is billions of years old, he showed.  This is also true for Mercury, he wrote at CMI in 2012 based on results from the MESSENGER orbiter.Other lunar mysteriesLava-filled craters:  Like Mercury, the moon has some craters with flat floors that appear to have been filled in with lava.  Scientists publishing a paper in Icarus studied 170 craters with “anomalously shallow fractured floors” and concluded that they formed via magmatic intrusions followed by sills, indicating volcanic activity from deep inside near the surface in the past.  This is not the same as volcanic activity caused by large impacts as hypothesized for the maria.Dikes at depth:  Geology published a paper about deep volcanic dikes, from 20 km down, evident in grabens on the lunar surface.  “Such dike geometric properties are only plausible if a mechanically weak lunar lithosphere was under extension at the time of dike emplacement.”Debris breakdown:  Ejecta debris, including large rocks, breaks down faster than expected, according to another paper in Geology.  “This result implies shorter rock survival times than predicted based on downward extrapolation of 100 m crater size-frequency distributions,” the scientists say, some from NASA and JPL.Add this observational fact to the list of evidences for a young solar system.  These observations are only a problem for the moyboys.  One would expect an original magnetic field to decay rapidly, as it continues to do so for the Earth.  Notice how the secular planetary scientists always reach for the favorite ad-hoc rescue device?  (Impacts.)  Not only are impacts unreproducible, they would have had to be finely tuned to achieve whatever effect is required to keep the moyboys from getting expelled from the science lab.

Patient dies as doctors quarrel over roles

first_imgA patient died at the Dhenkanal district hospital on Sunday as doctors wasted time quarrelling over who would attend to the victim.Trilokya Sahu (37) of Gunduraposi village under the Gondia police limit was rushed to the Community Health Centre, Gondia, when he complained of acute chest pain. Doctors immediately referred him to the Dhenkanal hospital.Relatives took him to the district hospital Outdoor Patient Department where they were told to take him to the medicine ward.Trilokya was taken to medicine ward where the doctor refused to attend to him saying it was not his case. The relatives again took him to the OPD. When the OPD doctor asked why the patient was not being attended to, it led to a spat between the two doctors. The two doctors were identified as Pragyan Das and Manoj Das.Meanwhile, the victim, who was left unattended, died. “My brother died as no doctor attended to him. It is a criminal act as the two doctors chose to fight instead of taking care of the patient,” said Rabi Narayan Sahu, brother of the victim. Dhenkanal Chief District Medical Officer Basudev Behera said it was an unfortunate incident and the matter would be investigated.Angry villagers staged a road block near Gondia demanding compensation of ₹10 lakh for the family of the deceased..last_img read more

Muslims in India are the happiest, says RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

first_imgThe happiest Muslims in the world are found in India, thanks to the Hindu culture, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat said here on Saturday.“Hindu” is not a religion or a language, he said, addressing a gathering of intellectuals. Neither is it the name of a country. “Hindu” is the culture of all those who live in India… one that accepts and respects diverse cultures. When any nation has deviated from the right path, it has come to us in search of truth, he said.“When Jews were wandering, India was the only nation where they got shelter. The Parsis practise their religion freely only in India. The happiest Muslims are found in India. Why is it so? Because we are Hindus,” he said.“It is our Hindu Rashtra. Many in India are ashamed of proclaiming their Hindu identity. There are some who will say they are proud of being Hindu. There are others who will say they are Hindu, but show their annoyance at the continuous utterance of the word. There are some who are cautious about their Hindu identity. When you ask them behind closed doors, then they will admit that they are Hindus. Because their interest are affected,” said the RSS chief.last_img read more
