NEW YORK — There’s certainly one New York team elated about the limit on Matt Harvey’s innings — and it’s not the first-place Mets.Carlos Beltran, CC Sabathia and the Yankees took advantage of Harvey’s early exit Sept. 20, beating the sloppy Mets 11-2 to tighten the AL East race just in time for a critical trip to Toronto.Dustin Ackley hit a three-run homer after Beltran’s go-ahead double, and Sabathia (5-9) won for the first time since July 8 as the Yankees took two of three at Citi Field to win both Subway Series this season.The Yankees, who lead the wild-card standings, moved within 2 1/2 games of the first-place Blue Jays heading into their three-game set beginning the night of Sept. 21. “I think you want a chance. That’s all you can ask for in this game,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said.The only bad news for the Bronx Bombers: Masahiro Tanaka won’t make his scheduled start in the series because of a strained right hamstring.Harvey looks fully healthy, but was pulled after five scoreless innings. The Mets are curbing his workload down the stretch even as they try to close out an NL East championship — and attending to both details became difficult after the game.“The last thing I ever want to do, especially in a close game like that, is come out,” said Harvey, scheduled for two more (probably abbreviated) starts during the regular season. “I’m going to be ready for my next start, whenever it is.”The loss reduced the Mets’ lead to six games over Washington with 13 to play.Harvey’s previous turn was skipped after he got tagged by the Nationals on Sept. 8. Pitching for the first time in 12 days, the right-hander yielded only an infield single and struck out seven.Six relievers followed Harvey to the mound, and none were particularly effective. “It was extremely hard to take him out there,” Mets Manager Terry Collins said. “Couldn’t have set it up any worse than it was.”Once the Mets went to the soft part of their bullpen, the Yankees quickly erased a 1-0 deficit. Two of the Mets’ four errors helped the Yankees score five runs — four unearned — off Hansel Robles (4-3) in the sixth.Beltran hit a two-run double, and Ackley’s drive made it 5-1.Greg Bird added a three-run homer in a five-run eighth, long after Girardi was ejected by third base umpire John Hirschbeck for arguing a checked-swing strike.Girardi went nose-to-nose with Hirschbeck on the field, but didn’t realize he’d been tossed until Hirschbeck asked Girardi what he was still doing in the dugout an inning later.Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits for the Yankees. “It’s huge for us,” Beltran said. “They’re in first place. We’re trying to get there. It was a very meaningful ballgame.”Harvey has thrown 176 2/3 innings in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, and agent Scott Boras has said doctors don’t want the 26-year-old ace to surpass 180 — although Harvey says he would be available for the playoffs.“We’ll stay with the plan for right now until we see where we are at the end of the month,” Collins said.Harvey got a normal reception in his first home start since the ruckus about his innings limit drew an avalanche of criticism early this month. After he was removed, he sat on the bench and lowered his head, nodding during a chat with Collins.“It’s hard for me to get it, because I am, at heart, the old-school guy,” Collins said. “But I understand where it’s coming from. Therefore, you adjust to it. Because I’ve said before, there’s a lot of things in our game today I don’t necessarily agree with. You adjust to it or get out. So I’m adjusting to it. I might get out here pretty soon, but I’m going to adjust to it right now.”(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares

Reuters NottinghamJune 7, 2019UPDATED: June 7, 2019 15:22 IST Mitchell Starc lead Australia towards a great victory over West Indies (Photo: Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSAustralia beat West Indies by 15 runs in Nottingham on ThursdayStarc completed with figures of 5-46 from his 10 overs at Trent BridgeStarc said Australia are confident of playing some really positive cricketMitchell Starc saw plenty of positives after his five-wicket haul helped Australia to a 15-run World Cup win over West Indies on Thursday but it could have been a different story.The fastest man to take 150 wickets in 50 overs cricket dismissed Windies captain Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite and Sheldon Cottrell in the last five overs to finish with figures of 5-46 from his 10 overs at Trent Bridge.”It was probably touch and go there,” the seamer told reporters.”Look, we’ve always had the belief there, and we’ve got plenty of good bowling in our line-up, and we know we’ve got guys that can bowl at the death.”We were always only a couple of wickets away, and at the same time they were probably only a few sticks away from taking the game away from us. A fantastic game of cricket today,” he added.Nathan Coulter-Nile had earlier struck a defiant 92, the highest World Cup score for a number eight batsman, after Australia lost their first five wickets for 79 runs.Starc said Australia were fortunate to get as many as they did, having earlier felt anything over 200 would give them a chance, and they came away with two wins from two games and heaps of positives.”He’s (Coulter-Nile) such a clean striker of the ball, and he hit some fantastic shots today, said Starc. Without his 92, it would have been a real battle for us with the ball.””As long as I can keep contributing to the group the way I’ve done today and hopefully the last couple of weeks, it’s a great sign for the group going forward, and we can start to string performances together, he added.advertisement”If we can all keep contributing and having a great tournament, it’s going to result in some really positive cricket for Australia.”While Coulter-Nile steadied the ship and helped set a competitive total of 288, it was still a close run thing in a match peppered with umpiring errors.One of them was a no-ball that went undetected just before the delivery that finally dismissed West Indies opener Chris Gayle.Starc admitted he had been unaware of the mis-step at the time.”I’m normally pretty close and I’ve actually been a fair way back for the last few weeks,” he said.”I didn’t know I was over there, but someone told me about five minutes ago that I was a fair way over. Got away with that one, fortunately.”Also Read | No regrets: Cricket South Africa on turning down AB de Villiers’ comeback offerAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Yuzvendra Chahal turns guest for Chahal TV after demolishing South AfricaAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Ganguly, who was India captain in the 2003 World Cup, got hundreds against Namibia and Kenya, including the one against the African minnows in the semi-final of the edition held in South Africa.Rohit Sharma was struggling to put bat to ball as England’s Jofra Archer and Mark Wood kept things tight in their defence of 337 on a fine batting pitch at Edgbaston. Rohit played out too many dot balls in an uncharacteristic start to his innings as the asking rate shot up. However, Rohit, who has 3 double hundreds in ODIs, opened up after reaching his half-century.Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were involved in a 138-run partnership. This was the highest partnership by any Indian pair in this World Cup. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli drew level with Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar with 31 fifty plus stands in ODIs.Rohit Sharma has been in sensational form for India in the 2019 World Cup. He had hit an unbeaten 122 in India’s tournament opener against South Africa before scoring a classy 140 against Pakistan on June 16.This was Rohit Sharma’s 25th ODI hundred and 4th of 2019.Rohit Sharma fell cheaply against Afghanistan on June 22 before being controversially ruled out in the game against West Indies on June 27. A day later, he posted a screenshot on social media of a close-up to suggest the ball did not even touch his bat.advertisementRohit is the highest run-scorer for India in this World Cup.

You’ll wear this jacket anywhere from a 5 a.m. coffee run in December to New Year’s Eve party to just binging trashy TV shows from the couch. Luxury tip: Only dry clean with a fur specialist.SplurgeSteve McQueen’s 1945 Willys Jeep MB – $102,500-$128,000Start the holidays early by gifting yourself a 1945 vintage U.S. Army Jeep that was once owned and driven by the coolest man to ever walk the planet: Steve McQueen.

The car is being sold with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Steve McQueen Estate Sale.SplurgeAl Marjan Island – $462,000,000At 115 acres, the island of Al Marjan feels closer to a private world than just an island. Located in the Persian Gulf and backed by the meditative Arabian Peninsula, Al Marjan Island enjoys sun and sea year-round (move there full-time knowing world-class Education and Health facilities are accessible in close proximity to the island). Of course, the island comes with an airstrip, pristine beaches, mainland power, and best of all, some damn peace and quiet. For the man who hates being around people, give him the gift of solitude.SplurgeAsprey Ritz-Carlton Drink Trolley – $78,000Like booze? Store it in this two-level steel and glass bar cart that costs as much as a car … but this stores whiskey so it’s obviously more useful. Made in collaboration between Asprey and the Ritz-Carlton, the design inspiration came from mixing Art Deco with modern cleanliness “because our design inspirations came from our archives — a time when barware was at the height of fashion,” says Asprey’s Ciara Hurley-Stewart, head of retail marketing and partnerships. “We incorporated modern elements in keeping with our current and new barware collections.”SplurgeJohnny Walkers Masters’ Edition – $25,000Like a bow on a car, no new bar cart is complete without a bottle on top. Better make it Johnny Walker Masters’ Edition triple-matured Scotch whiskey that costs a hearty $25,000 a bottle. Only 100 bottles have been created since the rare whiskey inside was aged for 50 years.

The only challenge is finding a wall where it’ll fit. Oh, and installation is an additional cost, but who’s counting?SplurgeGläce Luxury Ice Cubes -$325For a truly decadent on the rocks experience, Gläce is helping us shun machine-made ice (usually made with impure tap water!) that can contaminate the taste of high-quality spirits for their engineered “zero-taste” luxury ice that provides minimum dilution of your $25,000 whiskey but maximum cooling. You’ll be sent both Mariko sphere ice and G-Cubed ice in a sealed pouch.SplurgeSuper Bowl Ticket – $17,500Super Bowl LIII is scheduled for February 3, 2019, but now is the time to buy your lavish seats. A spot on the fifty in row 12 of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta is running $17,500. You’ll need at least two, if not three, so let’s safely say $52,000 will be your admission to the big game. These pricey tickets also gain you access to the all-inclusive Premier Party, meet-and-greet opportunities, and all-inclusive tailgate food and drinks during the game. We won’t pay $12 for a stadium hot dog, but this seems worth it.SplurgeClive Christian Original Collection Travel Colognes – $595Normally one bottle of Clive Christian Original (widely considered the most extravagant and expensive cologne in the world) runs $575 a bottle so we suggest picking up the travel collection, complete with the three masculine scents — 1972, No.1, and X — that make up Christian’s iconic Originals line. This sampling from the British perfume house includes three 30 ml bottles (about the size of a small dropper), so use sparingly.SplurgePersonal Butler – $50,000-$150,000Bruce Wayne has a butler, so why shouldn’t you? If you’re a busy man who could use the gift of time, look into hiring a skilled, trained, professional butler. While plenty of apps can give you access to errand-butlers, there’s nothing luxurious about that. The International Butler Academy states a butler should set you back $50,000 to $150,000, plus benefits. But that’s less than your 19-foot TV so hey, you’re being thrifty. If your needs are more suited to a cook, chauffeur, or governess, well, here you are.SplurgeBang & Olufsen Beosound Speakers – $4,266-$46,926Art meets sound in the Beosound wireless wall speaker system designed by Bang & Olufsen.

London: Eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer believes the “stars have aligned” as he attempts to become the oldest Grand Slam winner of modern times in Sunday’s final against Novak Djokovic. The 37-year-old Swiss can clinch a record-extending 21st major if he manages to break free of the world number one’s stranglehold. Four-time Wimbledon winner and defending champion Djokovic enjoys a 25-22 edge in career meetings, stretching back 13 years. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherThe Serb has won 14 of their last 20 meetings and eight of the last 10. Federer has lost all four of their most recent meetings at the Slams and it’s now seven years since he triumphed over the 32-year-old at the majors. That was 2012 in four sets in a Wimbledon semi-final. However, Federer, who will be 38 next month, insists such statistics are meaningless as he attempts to succeed Ken Rosewall, at the 1972 Australian Open, as the oldest Slam champion of the Open era. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open”It’s been a rock solid year for me. I won in Halle (on grass on the eve of Wimbledon). The stars are aligned right now,” said Federer. “From that standpoint I can go into the match very confident.” Federer, who passed the 100-win mark at Wimbledon in his quarter-final victory over Kei Nishikori, is feeling especially confident after seeing off Rafael Nadal in four sets in the semi-final. That win was crucial coming as it did just a month after his old rival had condemned him to his worst Slam loss in 11 years in the semi-finals at Roland Garros. Appearing in his 12th final at the All England Club, and 16 years after his maiden Wimbledon title triumph, Federer believes there is little new that either he or Djokovic can do to prepare for Sunday’s showdown. “This is like at school — on the day of the test you’re not going to read, I don’t know, how many books that day. “It’s quite clear the work was done way before.” There is no doubt whatsoever as to who the crowd will support. Djokovic, a 15-time Grand Slam champion, is respected by British fans but certainly not revered in the same saintly fashion reserved for Federer. Too intense and too new age for modest British tastes, Djokovic did little to endear himself in his semi-final win over Roberto Bautista Agut. After a punishing 45-shot rally ended in his favour, the Serb roared out his frustration, cupped his ear and placed an admonishing finger to his lips as most of Centre Court willed the ball to fall in the Spaniard’s favour. “Look, I focus on what I need to do,” said Djokovic. “At times they wanted him to come back into the match, maybe take a lead because he was an underdog. “I understand that. But I had enough support here over the years, so I don’t complain.” Djokovic has yet to be truly tested at this Wimbledon. The highest-ranked player he has faced was 21st-seeded David Goffin of Belgium who was dismissed for the loss of just six games in the quarter-finals. The ‘NextGen’ hopefuls in his half of the draw all failed to fire. Highly-regarded Stefanos Tsitsipas never made it past the first day while Canadian teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime fell in the third round.
Marrakech – Princess Lalla Salma, president of the Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment inaugurated, on Monday in Marrakech, a reproductive health reference center for breast and uterine cancer early detection.The Princess was given details on the health center, the population targeted by the national program for breast and uterine cancer early detection and the results of the program regionally and at the prefecture level.Princess Lalla Salma inaugurated, afterwards, the reproductive health reference center. Princess Lalla Salma toured the center made up of check-up rooms for the cervix and breast, ultrasound, mammography, colposcopy, observation, sterilization of equipment, pharmacy, and a meeting room.The setting up of the center is part of the national program for breast and uterine cancer early detection which is developed in collaboration with the Health Ministry.The center offers 4,500 consultations per year for breast and uterine cancer screening and early diagnosis.The center’s construction and equipment, over a surface area of 700 square meters, is worth 6.1 mln dirhams funded by the Al Waleed Bin Talal Foundation, social security body CNOPS and the Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment.The center is part of the broadening of the program on uterine cancer early detection in the prefecture of Marrakech. The nation-wide program on breast cancer screening and early diagnosis targets a population of 3.4 million women.The activities of the program on uterine cancer early detection are ensured in six regions: Rabat Salé Zemmour Zaïr, Meknès Tafilalt, Fez Boulmane, Marrakech Tensift El Haouz, Greater Casablanca, and Gharb Chrarda Bni Hssein. It covers a targeted population of 1.5 million women.As for the prefecture of Marrakech, the program for breast and uterine cancer early detection targets a population of 166,000 women aged 45-69 for breast cancer screening and nearly 122,000 women aged 30-49 for uterine cancer.
Rabat – Professors from Fes’ Al Qarawiyyin University will be giving courses in Sharia and Islamic tradition to students of Islamic Studies in Italian University of Siena.The Italian University of Siena opened a new major for the training of imams, the first of its kind in Europe. The courses will be operational starting in the 2017-2018 academic year.The two universities signed a partnership agreement on Tuesday, September 26 for the launch of a training branch for imams in the Faculty of Humanities and Civilizational Communication of the Italian University. “This is to train imams able to defend the authentic image of Islam,” the president of Al Qarawiyyin, Amal Jalal, told Maghreb Press Agency (MAP) after the signing ceremony.Teachers from Al Qarawiyyin will provide classes in the areas of Sharia and Islamic tradition, fiqh al-mouâmalat (Islamic jurisprudence), civilizational communication, and the history of religions. They will teach Shariain the Arabic language for Islamic Studies majors, while other students will be able to take courses in French or English, he said.In addition to classes in fiqh and Sharia, imam students will receive instruction from Italian teachers in humanities, law, social, and economics.The studies in this branch will last three years. Graduates will receive a diploma similar to the one issued by the Institute Mohammed VI for the teaching of imams, morchidines, and morchidates.Last April, the Union of Mosques of France had announced the opening of a training institute in France, by the beginning of 2018.
Kanagaraj said that based on that request the human rights commission in Jaffna had received information from several family members of people who went missing during that period. The police will also assist the Jaffna Human Rights Commission during the inquiries together with the Grama Sevaka officers.Once investigations are complete by the end of next week the Jaffna Human Rights Commission will then seek legal advice. An investigation is to be launched next week over complaints lodged by family members of people reported missing in Jaffna in 2006.The Jaffna Human Rights Commission said that a delegation from Colombo will arrive in Jaffna to assist in the investigations, the Uthayan newspaper reported. Coordinator of the Jaffna Human Rights Commission T.Kanagaraj said that in April this year the human rights commission had issued a notice calling on family members of people reported missing in 2006 to submit information about those missing with the commission.
“Our study shows that ageing may not have to proceed in one single direction,” said Dr Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, a professor in Salk’s Gene Expression Laboratory. “With careful modulation, aging might be reversed.”Obviously, mice are not humans and we know it will be much more complex to rejuvenate a person. But this study shows that ageing is a very dynamic and plastic process, and therefore will be more amenable to therapeutic interventions than what we previously thought.” In the future people could take a pill which turns their cells back to a much younger start, avoiding the need for cosmetic surgery Credit:Maggie West “In other studies scientists have completely reprogrammed cells all the way back to a stem-cell-like state,” says co-first author Pradeep Reddy, also a Salk research associate.”But we show, for the first time, that by expressing these factors for a short duration you can maintain the cell’s identity while reversing age-associated hallmarks.”The breakthrough could also help people stay healthier for longer. The ageing population means that the risk of developing age-related diseases, such as dementia, cancer and heart disease also rises. But if the body could be kept younger for longer then it could prevent many deadly diseases for decades. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

An end to grey hair and crows-feet could be just 10 years away after scientists showed it is possible to reverse ageing in animals.Using a new technique which takes adult cells back to their embryonic form, US researchers at the Salk Institute in California, showed it was possible to reverse ageing in mice, allowing the animals to not only look younger, but live for 30 per cent longer.The technique involves stimulating four genes which are particularly active during development in the womb. It was also found to work to turn the clock back on human skin cells in the lab, making them look and behave younger.Scientists hope to eventually create a drug which can mimic the effect of the found genes which could be taken to slow down, and even reverse the ageing process. They say it will take around 10 years to get to human trials. Scientists have known for some time that the four genes, which are known collectively as the Yamanaka factors, could turn adult cells back to their stem cell state, where they can grow into any part of the body. Mice that had a premature ageing disease returned to a healthy state Ageing is a plastic process and more amenable to therapeutic interventions than we previously thoughtDr Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, Salk Institute But it was always feared that allowing that to happen could damage organs made from the cells, and even trigger cancer.However, it was discovered that stimulating the genes intermittently reversed ageing, without causing any damaging side effects.In mice with a premature ageing disease, the treatment countered signs of ageing and increased their lifespan by 30 per cent. If it worked similarly in humans it could allow people to live until more than 100 years old. In healthy mice it also helped damaged organs to heal faster.
Weak commodity prices, declining grades and a fall off in demand from China will continue global mining sectors’ downward cycle well into 2016. However, regulatory mandates, tax burdens and stakeholder expectations remain as high as ever. This is according to the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited’s (Deloitte Global) Mining Tracking the Trends 2016 report that was recently released.“Similar to the boom cycle, where people imagined prices would go up forever, people now imagine the market will never recover. Neither extreme represents the truth. What is true, however, is that cycle times are lengthening. This means it could take years to adjust to current market forces – but it’s still a cycle,” says Andrew Lane Energy & Resources Africa Lead.The top 10 issues facing mining companies in 2016 according to the report are:Going lean: Operational excellence remains front and centre. In an effort to achieve true operational excellence, industry leaders are leveraging best practices from other industries and tackling difficult issues, including labour relations.Innovation: Preparing for exponential change. Innovation is a critical theme for miners. However, many mining companies remain at the early stage of the adoption curve – placing most of their innovation focus on technological optimisation of old techniques rather than looking for new ways to configure and engage externally. Short-term strategies miners should consider adopting include: enhanced innovation, collaborative ecosystems, digital workforce engagement, and improved asset management, aligning work processes with energy availability, 3D printing and modularisation.China’s transition: Looking for the silver lining. Given China’s influence on the global economy, miners should take steps to understand the global impact of the country’s domestic market trends – particularly as the Chinese government follows an increasingly interventionist path. Concerns over currency weakness may spur Chinese enterprises to buy overseas assets over the short-term – including natural resources. To prepare for these incipient shifts, it would be worth miners considering extreme scenarios, developing plans relative to China’s investment initiatives and leveraging Chinese expertise in areas such as design, construction and financing.Adjusting to the new normal: Commodity demand – particularly out of China – is down, but production is not falling. In fact, some producers have ramped up output to reduce unit costs, consolidate market share or avoid the costs associated with shutting down older mines.Preparing for inevitable change: The global move towards renewables has threatened the outlook for thermal coal. Although fossil fuels are likely to continue playing a critical role in the global energy mix, the move to alternative power sources is inevitable.Changing the nature of stakeholder dialogues: Old tactics no longer work. Instead, a new form of stakeholder engagement is needed – one that can demonstrably meet the demands of multiple groups. Miners should align their investments with the underlying needs of their disparate stakeholders to fully maximise opportunities.Starved of finance, miners struggle to survive: Attracting capital has become harder than ever, as segments of the industry continue running at a loss. In response, companies will likely continue to seek out alternative sources of financing – even when the terms aren’t entirely in their favour.Tax challenges will impact yesterday’s management: To keep pace with the evolving tax environment, companies should take steps to understand the financial implications of these new tax rules, assess their operational and corporate structures, take a fresh look at their management and engage with government stakeholders – especially where tax rules related to stability or production agreements threaten to change.The M&A paradox: To buy or not to buy. Despite predictions of a pick-up in mining M&A, M&A deal values and volumes continue to disappoint. In fact, the most active deal flow in recent years has come from divestments and rescue-type deals. To take advantage of these opportunities, miners may want to consider buying counter-cyclically and thinking twice before divesting.An expanded view of corporate and personal welfare: Industry risks related to both safety and security continue to grow. To enhance their safety records and security postures, miners may want to strengthen their safety procedures.To view the report, please visit www.deloitte.com/trackingthetrends

What’s got Aibo so excited? He’s probably heard that Will.i.am is working on a high-tech pooch of his own and plans to hawk it in stores this holiday season.Based on what the gadget-obsessed star said recently, this isn’t going to be just another cyberpet that can come when you call it or flash brightly-colored LED disco lights while your iPod cycles through a playlist.No, Will plans on making his pet a bit more functional than that. In fact, it sounds like he wants it to be more of a four-legged Siri. You should be able to tell it to make album download purchases, ask it when the next Giants game is, or check the weather forecast. Or why Will.i.am is inventing things.Inspiration struck when he was browsing the aisles at Harrods, whose clever employees had placed a stuffed animal, a wireless speaker, and a MiFi hotspot in close proximity to each other. The lightbulb went on, and Will took all three home for an impromptu DIY session.After cramming the MiFi into the head and the speaker into the belly, Will jammed his iPhone into the frankenbeast’s mouth and declared it his latest prototype. Surely this is exactly the type of thing that made the Intel board of directors confident that Will.i.am was the right choice for its imaginary “director of creative innovation” position.However this plays out, let’s all just hope this new SmartDog doesn’t come with free copy of the musical travesty that is Geekin’.
Stay on target Eating a healthy diet can save your health and freshwater.A new study by the European Commission suggests that shifting to a more nutritious menu could reduce the amount of water required to produce food (the “water footprint,” if you will).The Joint Research Center (JRC) compared wholesome carnivorous, pescatarian, and vegetarian diets to current food consumption in France, Germany, and the UK.They found that eating more healthfully could substantially reduce the total volume of freshwater used to produce goods in all three countries:Between 11 percent and 35 percent for healthy diets containing meatBetween 33 percent and 55 percent for healthy pescetarian dietsBetween 35 percent and 55 percent for healthy vegetarian dietsUnsurprisingly, animal products—especially meat—have a high water footprint.And, as the average European diet is characterized by overconsumption in general (but particularly of animal products), it’s easy to see how this is a growing problem.The potential impact on the water footprint of food consumption when shifting to healthy vegetarian diets in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom (via European Commission)A healthy diet, according to the EU Science Hub (and basically every doctor ever), contains less processed sugar, crop oils, and meat and animal fats, and more vegetables and fruit.Unfortunately, some of life’s greatest pleasures don’t fit that bill.“Due to the numerous negative impacts of an intensive livestock production system on the planet’s resources and ecosystems, as well as the growing demands of non-Western countries for animal products, moving to a more resource-efficient (and healthier) vegetable-rich diet in the EU is a necessity,” the European Commission said.Like most things in life, individual food-based behavior depends heavily on socio-economic factors like age, gender, and education level.Across France, for example, the water footprint of milk consumption decreases with age (which suggests older folks guzzle less milk than youngsters).And in London, there is a strong correlation between the water footprint of wine consumption and the percentage of the population with a high education level—i.e. smarter people hit the bottle more.The negative correlation between age and milk consumption in France (left); the positive correlation between percent of highly educated people and wine consumption in London (right) (via European Commission)As part of their research, scientists studied national dietary surveys, which take into account total daily energy and protein requirements, as well as maximum daily fat amounts, based on governmental guidelines.“By downscaling national water footprints to the lowest possible administrative boundaries within a country, the scientists provide a useful tool for policymakers at various levels,” according to an EU Science Hub news release.This methodology could also be applied to other assessments, like carbon, land, or energy footprints, as they relate to food consumption.Hhmmm… I wonder what the water footprint of these 24/7 meat vending machines is.

Asus For gamers who dare to be different, Asus has added AMD-based versions of its more traditional Intel/Nvidia-based FX505 and FX705 budget gaming laptops here at CES. In theory, the AMD models should be even more budget-friendly than their linemates, but that’s not always the case. They’re slated to ship by the end of March, but Asus hasn’t provided any pricing. Tags Now playing: Watch this: Graphics CPU Up to 512GB SSD, up to 1TB hybrid Key specifications Memory They’ll incorporate the new AMD Ryzen 5 3550H CPU and Radeon RX 560X discrete graphics. Both laptops support FreeSync (AMD’s variable-refresh technology for preventing tearing artifacts), but the 17-inch FX705DY’s screen has more limited 60Hz-max latitude than the 15-inch’s 48-120Hz refresh range. Unlike the FX504 we reviewed in July, the displays in these models have IPS screens — not as fast as the TN panel we complained about, but they should look much better. The TUF line distinguishes itself from other budget gaming laptops with boasts of, well, toughness. They’re built to MIL-STD-810G spec to withstand minor drops and the fan system is designed to dispatch dust and particles out the vents.

PixabayIndian government has made itself very clear when it comes to cryptocurrencies: “These are not legal tender.”This implies the Reserve Bank of India has not authorized any virtual currencies as a medium of exchange and offers someclarity on how India plans to treat bitcoin.But should the central bank’s decision deter you from investing in cryptocurrencies, possibly the most fundamental and revolutionizing invention of our times?There’s no straight answer to this but we can definitely look at the following two possibilities:Let’s start with the answer: no. You should not invest in bitcoin.The reason why is that it’s not an investment; just as gold and rare baseball cards are also not investments.When we make a purchase, we are merely speculating on the prices, without any underlying factor or reasoning. So on some days, our speculation could bring in windfall returns, but there’s a huge likelihood of our investment turning sour in no time.An investment is something that has intrinsic value – that is, it would be worth owning from a financial perspective, even if you could never sell it.Now how about saying yes to investing in bitcoin.In this case, one needs to figure out whether this is a good time to buy. Meaning, do you think the price will continue to rise.Bitcoin is an extremely risky investment and there’s no clear way to analyze the price of bitcoins. Its better to gain some understanding about the currency, what affects it, what are its advantages and disadvantages before making an investment.Beware of websites making tall claims that they will double your bitcoins as they are mostly scams or HYIPs (high yield investment programs).
