1st Test: Ashwin six-for puts India in control on Day 1

first_imgOffspinner Ravichandran Ashwin spun a web around Sri Lankan batsmen with a six-wicket haul as India dismissed the hosts for a paltry 183 in the first innings to gain the upperhand on the opening day of the first Test here on Wednesday. {blurb)India’s premier spinner recorded his best overseas figures of 6 for 46 in 13.4 overs to trigger a collapse that saw the islanders being shot out in just 49.4 overs in their first innings after skipper Angelo Mathews opted to make first use on a track that had turn on offer on the first day itself.At stumps, India looked in command as they reached 128 for 2 after opener KL Rahul (7) and Rohit Sharma (9) were dismissed cheaply. Shikhar Dhawan seemed to continue from where he left off in Bangladesh as he stroked his way to an unbeaten 53 while skipper Virat Kohli looked supremely confident during his undefeated knock of 45.India are only 55 runs short of Sri Lanka’s first innings total and will be looking to build a sizeable lead on a pitch that is offering substancial turn at times. The first day panned out exactly in the manner that skipper Kohli might have wanted it to be.Ishant Sharma (1 for 30 in 11 overs) bowled a good opening spell where he hit the deck hard to extract disconcerting bounce. One such delivery that took off from short of good length saw left-hander Dimuth Karunaratne (9) fend it awkwardly as Ajinkya Rahane took a simple of catch running forward from gully.Kaushal Silva (5) was a touch unlucky after Shikhar Dhawan earlier dropped a dolly at first slip off Varun Aaron’s (1 for 68 in 11 overs) bowling. But this time was ball that was dug short which Silva wanted to pull but hit his arm guard as Dhawan ran back to dive and take a catch. The replays showed that umpire Nigel Llong got it wrong.advertisementOnce Ashwin was brought into the attack in the 12th over, he completely stamped his supremacy on the islanders. Kumar Sangakkara (5) had a forgettable first innings in his penultimate Test match as he tried to push one off-break off the back-foot which saw young Rahul take a sharp catch at silly point.With Sri Lanka reduced to 27 for 3, it became increasingly difficult for them to claw their way back into the game.last_img read more

ICC World Twenty20: Chris Gayle not the only one West Indies rely on, says Darren Sammy

first_img“It is not a one-man show for us,” asserted West Indies skipper Darren Sammy as Andre Fletcher filled in the big boots of injured Chris Gayle with a remarkable 84-run knock against Sri Lanka, on Sunday night.Gayle pulled his hamstring while fielding and did not bat in West Indies’ chase. Fletcher opened the innings and played a gem of a knock to lead his side to win. (World T20: Fletcher, Badree star as West Indies thrash Sri Lanka by 7 wickets) “I hope that he (Gayle) recovers but what we have shown today is that it’s not a one man show. The way Fletcher stepped up in the absence of Gayle showed that we have 15 potential match winners,” Sammy said making the point clear that they are not depended on just Gayle.”It was good to see the way we bowled. And then the way Fletcher batted was brilliant. I’m happy as a captain. When you select someone and they have immediate impact you are happy,” he said.Sammy also praised his spinners — Samuel Badree and Suleiman Benn — who gave away just 25 runs in their eight overs. “The spinners are the ones getting the wickets and keeping down the rate. The way Badree and Benn bowled in the powerplay was great. Badree kept taking wickets and that helped,” he said.”We had lot of difficulties before the tournament. The way the boys have responded is brilliant,” Sammy said referring to the contract row with the WICB.Man-of-the-match Fletcher said Gayle had inspired him to do well on Sunday. “Chris is my mentor in T20 and before I went in he said I would have a big day so I want to thank him for that confidence,” he said.advertisementAsked if he wants to make the opener’s spot his own, Fletcher said,” I don’t think anyone can take his job.””The bowlers did their job and the batsmen had to finish it. Good to have another win. We are all as one, unity and strength. We don’t want to get complacent and will play each game as a final,” he added.Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews wore a dejected look, regretting a few dropped catches.”We were 20-30 runs short and we were horrible in the field. The middle order let us down. It was really difficult for us today. We wanted 150 somehow but couldn’t do it. We have an inexperienced team compared to 2014 but we are improving day by day,” he saidlast_img read more

Wheeler Rolls, Mets Rout Phils

first_imgNEW YORK — For a young pitcher such as Zack Wheeler, the most promising performances can come on days he doesn’t have his best stuff.Daniel Murphy hit a three-run homer to back up Wheeler’s sixth straight strong start, and the Mets routed the Phillies 11-2 on July 30.“You saw a guy battle without his best command,” Manager Terry Collins said proudly of the 24-year-old right-hander.Wheeler (6-8) gave up two runs and seven hits with four strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings — the sixth consecutive outing in which he allowed two runs or fewer.The Mets sent 10 men to the plate in the seventh inning, scoring five insurance runs off the Philadelphia bullpen to take two of three in the series.After the Phillies went up 1-0 in the top of the fifth, New York quickly responded — with Wheeler helping himself at the plate.Juan Lagares opened the bottom of the inning with an infield hit when backup shortstop Andres Blanco double-clutched after ranging far to his left to field the grounder up the middle.Ruben Tejada singled to bring up Wheeler, who fouled off his first two bunt attempts. But with two strikes, he got the ball in play — and it was a good one, easily advancing the runners to second and third.Curtis Granderson walked to load the bases, then Kyle Kendrick’s wild pitch with Murphy at the plate tied the game. Three pitches later, Murphy put the Mets ahead 4-1 with his first homer since July 1.“It happened quick,” Phillies Manager Ryne Sandberg said. “(Kendrick) just wasn’t able to keep it at one or two runs there.”Jimmy Rollins, out of the lineup for the noon start after a night game, pinch-hit for Kendrick (5-11) to open the seventh and homered for the second straight day to pull the Phillies within 4-2. They had runners on first and third with two outs, but Jeurys Familia came on to retire Marlon Byrd.Familia went on to get his first career RBI with a single in the bottom of the inning, when the Mets broke the game open with the help of an error by reliever Justin De Fratus that led to two unearned runs.With one out, the Phillies intentionally walked David Wright to bring up Lucas Duda, who was batting .153 against lefties.But he singled off Mario Hollands to put New York up 5-2. Duda added his fifth homer in eight games in the eighth. He was robbed of another in the fourth by center fielder Ben Revere’s leaping catch at the wall.“I have confidence in myself that I can hit lefties,” Duda said. “Right now I’m going through a bit of a rough spell.”Ryan Howard broke out of an 0-for-12 slump with a two-out RBI double in the fifth that briefly put the Phillies up 1-0.(RACHEL COHEN, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Visiting Iraqi Kurdistan UN envoy urges consensus on disputed territories

The Secretary-General’s Special Representative to Iraq, Ashraf Qazi, addressed the opening session of the “Practical Federalism in Iraq” conference, where he articulated the world body’s positions on crucial issues Iraq faces today, such as the constitutional review and federalism.“The United Nations has not sought to impose solutions on any party,” Mr. Qazi told participants, referring to Article 140 – regarding the status of the northern city of Kirkuk – of the Constitution.The UN recognizes that this is a sovereign Iraqi process and that high-level political dialogue is necessary to find a solution acceptable to all parties, he said.The UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) “believes that finding a consensual solution on the implementation of Article 140 can help resolve the status of disputed territories” and could also ensure that any resolution is widely accepted and does not lead to additional violence, he noted.Mr. Qazi pledged UNAMI’s assistance and technical expertise on this issue if and when requested by the Iraqi Government.The Special Representative also held official meetings with the President of the Kurdistan Region, Massoud Barzani, and other officials, discussing a wide array of topics such as Article 140, human rights and the security situation in Iraq. 13 July 2007The senior United Nations envoy to Iraq has concluded a three-day visit to the Kurdistan Region with a call for all parties in the violence-wracked country to seek consensus on the status of disputed territories. read more

Three Serbs temporarily released from jail by UN war crimes tribunal

10 December 2007Three men facing trial at the United Nations war crimes tribunal set up to deal with the worst crimes of the Balkan wars of the 1990s have been granted temporary release from jail and allowed to return to Serbia while the court is on its annual winter recess. The trial chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which sits in The Hague, ordered on Friday that the men be released under certain terms and conditions, including that they return to The Hague early next month.Radivoje Miletić has been granted provisional release from 15 December until 7 January, Milan Gvero from 16 December until 8 January, and Milan Milutinović from 17 December until 2 January.Mr. Miletić and Mr. Gvero, who served as high-ranking military officials in the Bosnian Serb Army (VRS), face charges of murder, persecutions, forcible transfer and deportation, all related to the notorious massacre of Muslims in the Srebrenica and Žepa enclaves in mid-1995.The joint trial of the two men began in July 2006, with the prosecution case-in-chief expected to finish by next February, and the defence case scheduled to start by early June.Mr. Milutinović, a former President of Serbia and member of the Supreme Defence Council of the then Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, has been indicted on charges related to fighting in Kosovo in 1999. He faces counts of murder, deportation, forcible transfer and persecutions on political, racial or religious grounds. His trial, which also began in July 2006, is expected to finish early next year. read more

Global food prices rebound for first time in six months – UN

The FAO Food Price Index rose by four points or nearly two per cent to a measure of 214 points in January, with the price of oils increasing the most, followed by cereals, sugar, dairy products and meat.This is the first such increase since July last year, and the index still stands seven per cent below its position of January 2011.Abdolreza Abbasian, a senior grains economist with FAO, said there was no single or clear explanation behind the rebound in food prices, with different reasons applying to different commodities.“But the increase, despite an expected record harvest and an improved stocks situation, and after six months of falling or stable prices, highlights the unpredictability prevailing in global food markets,” he said.“I can’t see that the usual suspects – the value of the dollar and oil prices – were much involved in January. But one reason is poor weather currently affecting key growing regions like South America and Europe. It has played a role and remains a cause for concern,” he added.The oils and fats price index rose by three per cent, due mainly to stronger import demand for palm and soy oils, along with a seasonal decline in palm oil production.The price of all major cereals, with the exception of rice, rose last month, with maize prices jumping by six per cent. The cereal price rise was driven mostly by market concerns about weather conditions affecting crop production this year in several major producing regions. 9 February 2012Global food prices rose overall last month for the first time in six months, demonstrating the volatility of international food markets, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported today. read more

Heres a list of July inflation rates for selected Canadian cities

OTTAWA — Canada’s national annual inflation rate was two per cent in July, Statistics Canada says. The agency also released rates for major cities, but cautioned that figures may have fluctuated widely because they are based on small statistical samples (previous month in brackets):— St. John’s, N.L.: 0.6  per cent (0.9)— Charlottetown-Summerside: 1.0 (0.6)— Halifax: 1.8 (1.6)— Saint John, N.B.: 1.6 (1.6)— Quebec: 1.7 (1.6)— Montreal: 2.4 (2.2)— Ottawa: 2.1 (1.9)— Toronto: 2.3 (2.0)— Thunder Bay, Ont.: 2.0 (1.7)— Winnipeg: 2.2 (2.7)— Regina: 1.6 (1.8)— Saskatoon: 1.9 (1.9)— Edmonton: 1.3 (1.5)— Calgary: 0.8 (1.1)— Vancouver: 2.2 (2.7)— Victoria: 2.4 (2.8)The Canadian Press

Right to online privacy at risk as governments engage in mass surveillance

“States need to squarely confront the fact that mass surveillance programmes effectively do away with the right to online privacy altogether,” Ben Emmerson, Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights while countering terrorism, told the General Assembly body dealing with cultural, social and humanitarian issues (Third Committee) during the presentation his latest report. “Measures that interfere with the right to privacy must be authorized by accessible and precise domestic law that pursues a legitimate aim, is proportionate and necessary,” he continued, adding that he refused to “accept the analogy that sending an email is like sending a post-card” as States’ obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights also extended to the digital world. Mr. Emmerson has long emphasized the need for transparency and accountability in government intelligence gathering operations. In 2012, for instance, he criticized the United States District Court of Washington, D. C.’s “unjustified maintenance of secrecy” following its decision to refuse freedom of information requests by a British organization on extraordinary renditions. In his current report on the protection and promotion of human rights while countering terrorism, the Special Rapporteur conceded that the fight against terrorism remained a critical priority and could, in principle, “form the basis of an arguable justification for mass surveillance of the internet.” But, he stressed, bulk access technology remained “indiscriminately corrosive” of online privacy and impinged on “the very essence of the right to privacy.”Mr. Emmerson called on all Member States involved in mass surveillance to provide a detailed and evidence-based justification for the systematic interference of their citizens’ privacy and emphasized the need for “strong and independent” oversight bodies that are “adequate for a review before these programmes are applied.” “Individuals must have the right to seek an effective remedy for any alleged violation of their online privacy rights,” he said. Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Ohio State baseball completes sweep of Morehead State

OSU plays Morehead State at Bill Davis Stadium on April 22. OSU won, 7-0. Credit: Zoe Chrysochoos / Lantern PhotographerThe Ohio State baseball team is 9-0 in midweek matchups after a two-game sweep of the Morehead State University Eagles.The Buckeyes are 28-10 overall, but coach Greg Beals was quick to downplay Wednesday’s victory, stating that the team still has work to do.“We are looking at the next game,” Beals said. “And we’re looking to keep it rolling. These guys are in a good spot, they know they’re playing well, but they also know their job’s not done yet.”With the 7-0 shutout of the Eagles, the Buckeyes tallied their fourth sweep of the year. However, all was not sweet for OSU as freshman right-handed pitcher Jacob Niggemeyer went down in the bottom of the sixth after being hit by a line drive in his right wrist.“He’s pretty sore. It was line drive directly to the bone. We are going to get an X-ray in the morning and hope for the best,” Beals said.Freshman right-hander Seth Kinker relieved Niggemeyer, throwing 20 pitches before junior John Havird and redshirt-sophomore Shea Murray saw out the Buckeyes’ fifth shutout of the year.Outfielder Tre’ Gantt sparked the Buckeyes with a 3-for-4 performance at the plate, prompting Beals to praise the freshman’s confidence.“He’s had confidence from the day he’s walked in here. Tre’ Gantt knows he’s good at baseball, so that helps his mentality of being ready to play,” Beals said.Gantt also scored one run and added two RBIs in his sixth consecutive game as the designated hitter for OSU.“It feels great to finally get my chance; anything I can do to help my team win,” Gantt said.OSU took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, and after two scoreless innings, the Buckeyes turned up the heat. In the bottom of the fourth, senior catcher Aaron Gretz singled up the middle before Gantt shot a double to left field.The bottom of the batting order gave the Buckeyes a 3-0 lead when junior shortstop Craig Nennig singled to right field, allowing Gretz and Gantt to score.In the fifth, redshirt-junior third baseman Nick Sergakis blasted a double to right field, bringing two Buckeyes home, and making the score 5-0. Gantt continued the momentum for the Buckeyes by slicing a single up the middle to give OSU the 7-0 advantage.OSU is now No. 14 in the RPI rankings, jumping up four spots after a series victory against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Buckeyes will look to continue their momentum as they travel to Evanston, Ill., to take on Northwestern.The three game-series is set to start Friday at 4 p.m., followed by matchups on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. read more

Walls that gave up Nazi secrets to be preserved in new museum

first_imgSeveral of the rooms at Trent Park where the German prisoners socialised – and the walls through which their conversations were recorded – will now be restored and preserved for posterity.Ms Lederer, whose grandfather – a Czech refugee – was one of the intelligence officers tasked with gathering information from the German Prisoners of War, said:“It will now be museum instead of all being luxury flats, which is a huge triumph and of interest for the future. Younger people aren’t always necessarily interested, but they will find it if its there.”Microphones hidden in the walls, furniture and even pot plants at Trent Park, near Cockfosters, north London, allowed military intelligence to gather invaluable information from the Germans who – unaware they were being spied on – spoke freely among themselves. Helen Lederer, whose grandfather served with British intelligence at Trent House, in north London At Trent Park it really was the case that, in the words of the World War Two propaganda slogan, the walls had ears.It was through those walls that as part of an ingenious undercover operation British intelligence eavesdropped on the 59 high ranking German officers being held prisoner there.More than 70 years on the English country house where such valuable information was extracted was destined to be turned into luxury flats – its intriguing history lost forever.But it can now be revealed that developers have agreed to set aside part of the extensive building for conversion into a museum, following a campaign by local residents and historians, including the comic and writer Helen Lederer.

Such was the value of the overheard conversations that it allowed British intelligence to discover the existence of Hitler’s secret weapon programme at Peenemunde, in the Baltic, and subsequently inflict heavy damage on the plant during a bombing raid in August 1943.The officer’s loose talk also gave up information which was used by the allies to defend the Atlantic convoys against U-Boat attacks.“It was sort of James Bond, but it saved lives,” said Miss Lederer. “My grandfather spoke fluent German. He met and assessed the Nazi officers at Trent Park and was able in his work with the secret listeners to prevent loss of life during the war. He’d be assessing their psychology and getting as much information as possible.“My grandmother would see him off in the mornings and nobody knew until a few years ago. It was absolutely wonderful to discover my grandfather did do something.”According to historian Helen Fry, who wrote The M Room about the Trent Park eavesdropping operation, the German officers also boasted about the war crimes they had committed, unaware their conversations were being recorded.“They became completely unguarded,” she said.Following the defeat of Nazi Germany Trent Park is understood to have been used as part of the West’s Cold War intelligence operations against the Soviet Union, though much of the detail about this period remains classified.The building later became part of Middlesex University, until its sale to Berkeley Homes last year.Ms Fry told Radio 4’s Today programme: “There’s a lot of history about the place that we’re still not allowed to share. It’s something that could be explored when more of the Cold War stuff is released.” Some of the German officers held at Trent Park during WWIICredit:Bundesarchiv last_img read more

Ancient burial site discovered in northern Greece

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Archaeologists unearthed a lavish burial site at the seat of the ancient Macedonian kings in northern Greece on Friday, heightening a 2,300-year-old mystery of murder and political intrigue.The find in the ruins of Aigai came a few metres (yards) from last year’s remarkable discovery of what could be the bones of Alexander the Great’s murdered teenage son, according to one expert.Archaeologists are puzzled because both sets of remains were buried under very unusual circumstances: Although cemeteries existed near the site, the bones were taken from an unknown first resting place and re-interred, against all ancient convention, in the heart of the city.Excavator Chrysoula Saatsoglou-Paliadeli said in an interview that the bones found this week were inside one of two large silver vessels unearthed in the ancient city’s marketplace, close to the theatre where Alexander’s father, King Philip II, was murdered in 336 B.C.She said they arguably belonged to a Macedonian royal and were buried at the end of the 4th century B.C.But it is too early to speculate on the dead person’s identity, pending tests to determine the bones’ sex and age, said Saatsoglou-Paliadeli, a professor of classical archaeology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.She said one of the silver vessels is “very, very similar” to another found decades ago at a nearby royal tumulus, where one grave has been identified as belonging to Philip II.Alexander was one of the most successful generals of all times. In a series of battles against the Persian Empire, he conquered much of the known world, reaching as far as India.After his death in 323 B.C., at the age of 32, Alexander’s empire broke up in a series of wars by his successors that saw the murder of his mother, half brother, wife and both sons.Archaeologist Stella Drougou said the new find is “very important, as it follows up on last year’s.”“It makes things very complex,” she said. “Even small details in the ancient texts can help us solve this riddle. We (now) have more information, but we lack a name.”Drougou told The Associated Press that the fact the funerary urns were not placed in a proper grave “either indicates some form of punishment, or an illegal act.”“Either way, it was an exceptional event, and we know the history of the Macedonian kings is full of acts of revenge and violent succession.”Drougou, who was not involved in the discovery, is also a professor of classical archaeology at the Aristotle University.Saatsoglou-Paliadeli believes the teenager’s bones found in 2008 may have belonged to Heracles, Alexander’s illegitimate son who was murdered during the wars of succession around 309 B.C. and buried in secret. The remains had been placed in a gold jar, with an elaborate golden wreath.“This is just a hypothesis, based on archaeological data, as there is no inscription to prove it,” she said.At a cemetery in nearby Vergina, Greek archaeologists discovered a wealth of gold and silver treasure in 1977. One opulent grave, which contained a large gold wreath of oak leaves, is generally accepted to have belonged to Philip II. The location of Alexander’s tomb is one of the great mysteries of archaeology.The sprawling remains of a large building with banquet halls and ornate mosaics at Aigai — some 190 miles (300 kilometers) north of Athens — has been identified as Philip’s palace.The city flourished in the 6th and 5th centuries B.C., attracting leading Greek artists such as the poet Euripides. The Macedonian capital was moved to Pella in the 4th century B.C., and Aigai was destroyed by the Romans in 168 B.C.last_img read more

Développement durable Volvic lance une bouteille végétale

first_imgDéveloppement durable : Volvic lance une bouteille végétaleFrance – Le groupe Danone Eaux France a annoncé le lancement de sa première bouteille écologique. Une nouveauté permise grâce à un plastique produit à base de plantes, comme la mélasse de canne à sucre.C’est à la marque Volvic que Danone a choisi de donner une image plus verte. Un choix “liéau positionnement de la marque et à la sensibilité de ses consommateurs à l’égard de l’environnement”, explique Véronique Penchienati, directrice générale de Danone Eaux France.La nouvelle bouteille n’est pour l’instant adaptée qu’au format 50 cl, mais l’utilisation du BioPET, un plastique produit en partie à base de mélasse provenant de résidus de canne à sucre fermentée, devrait être étendue à toutes les autres bouteilles Volvic dans les mois à venir. La bouteille écologique est produite avec 20% de composés d’origine végétale. Entièrement recyclable, son empreinte carbone est, d’après Danone, réduite de 35 à 40 % par rapport à une bouteille traditionnelle.Le groupe se rapproche ainsi de son objectif environnemental : réduire de 40% l’empreinte carbone de ses bouteilles entre 2008 et 2012. L’entreprise compte atteindre cet objectif en jouant sur trois niveaux : ses usines, le transport et l’emballage, ce dernier représentant 60% de l’empreinte globale.Le 16 septembre 2010 à 17:37 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Andropause définition symptômes âge de quoi sagitil

first_imgAndropause : définition, symptômes, âge, de quoi s’agit-il ?Équivalent à la ménopause chez la femme, l’andropause peut toucher certains hommes passé la quarantaine.Définition : qu’est que l’andropause ?L’andropause, ou déficit androgénique lié à l’âge, est un phénomène biologique affectant les hommes entre 40 et 55 ans, caractérisé par la baisse de testostérone. Elle est associée au processus de vieillissement naturel. Le terme andropause, analogue à la ménopause, est toutefois contesté car il n’existe pas réellement de cessation chez l’homme, comme celle des fonctions ovariennes chez la femme. De plus, l’andropause ne concerne pas tous les hommes mais seulement 30%. C’est pour cela que certains voudrait la renommer hypogonadisme acquis ou syndrome de déficience en testostérone. L’andropause est un processus progressif sur plusieurs décennies. En effet, le taux de testostérone commence à diminuer à partir de l’âge de 30 ans, d’environ 1% par an.Symptômes de l’andropauseLa diminution du taux de testostérone entraîne plusieurs changements graduels chez l’homme. Le premier est d’ordre sexuel : baisse de la libido et difficultés à connaître et maintenir une érection. Il n’y a en revanche aucun impact sur la capacité de reproduction. Ce changement s’accompagne généralement de troubles morphologiques comme une prise de poids (accumulation de la graisse viscérale), une baisse du tonus musculaire ou une diminution de la pilosité. L’andropause peut également causer des insomnies (qui engendrent de l’épuisement et de l’irritabilité), des bouffées de chaleur, des problèmes de concentration et de mémoire, de l’ostéoporose, une dépression et des troubles de la prostate. Causes de l’andropauseL’andropause s’explique par la diminution du taux de testostérone. Il s’agit d’une hormone stéroïdienne produite et sécrétée dans les testicules. Elle est liée à deux protéines plasmatiques, la SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin soit globuline se liant aux hormones sexuelles) et l’albumine, qui la transportent et la régulent dans le sang. La SHBG se lie également avec une autre hormone, l’estradiol. Hors le taux de celle-ci augmente avec l’âge, ce qui implique alors un nombre moins important de testostérone dans la circulation sanguine. Traitement de l’andropause À lire aussiACC (anticoagulants circulants) : définition, rôle, comment analyser les résultats ?Le seul traitement médicamenteux existant pour traiter l’andropause est une prise en charge hormonale à base de testostérone. Le but est de réduire les symptômes afin de retrouver une bonne qualité de vie. Si les problèmes érectiles persistent, le médecin peut prescrire des médicaments comme le viagra pour aider à retrouver une vie sexuelle épanouie. Il est également recommandé de faire régulièrement du sport, du surveiller son alimentation et d’éviter le stress. Le 17 novembre 2017 à 11:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Marvel Confirms White People for Black Panther

first_imgStay on target Wakanda Forever: New Fish Named After ‘Black Panther’ HomeThe Best ‘Avengers’ Toys After stealing the show in last summer’s Captain America: Civil War, the Black Panther solo MCU film is on track for release next February. The movie is currently shooting in Atlanta, and Marvel just dropped this first synopsis.“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk” We also got an updated cast list. From star Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa to director Ryan Coogler’s muse Michael B. Jordan as villain Erik Kilmonger to famous space insurgent Forest Whitaker as Wakanda statesman Zuri, we already knew most of these actors were showing up when we learned that Angela Bassett joined the cast as Queen-Mother Ramonda. However, we did find out a few new things.Sterling K. Brown of The People v. O.J. Simpson is joining the film as N’Jobu. John Kani is reprising his role as the late ruler of Wakanda, King T’Chaka. Maybe he’ll show up in the one of the rumored 1990s flashbacks?But fans of equal opportunity affirmative action should be thrilled to learn that famous foreign white men Martin Freeman, and Andy Serkis are returning to the MCU. Freeman played government official Everett K. Ross in Civil War (not to be confused with Secretary of State Thaddeus E. “Thunderbolt” Ross played by William Hurt” in Civil War). Serkis plays arms dealer, the enemy of Wakanda, and one-time being of pure sound Ulysses Klaue, who first appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron.If we must have white dudes in Black Panther those are two pretty good picks. I just hope Bucky doesn’t get thawed out quite yet.Black Panther hits theaters February 16, 2018. In the meantime, enjoy the excellent ongoing Black Panther comics.last_img read more

Fighter Dies After Fight Card At MGM

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, AFRO Staff Writer, mgray@afro.comA damaging blow may have been dealt to major boxing matches coming to Maryland after the death of a fighter during a nationally televised card at MGM National Harbor.  Junior welterweight Maxim Dadashev died July 23 as a result of brain injuries suffered during an 11th-round knockout loss to Subriel Matias on an ESPN/Top Rank event in Oxon Hill. Dadashev was a 28-year old rising welterweight prospect who was reportedly “fighting for his green card” in hopes of bringing his family from Russia to the United States.  This was a 140-pound world title elimination fight for the right to become the mandatory challenger for the belt, which is currently held by Josh Taylor.Junior welterweight Maxim Dadashev died July 23 as a result of brain injuries suffered during an 11th-round knockout loss to Subriel Matias at MGM National Harbor. (Courtesy Photo)Most ring observers don’t believe the fight could have been stopped any sooner.  Matias was dominating and Dadashev wasn’t showing much resistance before the end of the 11th round. He had been nailed by a series of consistent head blows and relentless body shots throughout the fight, but showed enough defense the referee was reluctant to stop the fight.His trainer, Buddy McGirt, was seen during the live broadcast between the 10th and 11th rounds asking if he could continue for a final round defend himself during the continuous onslaught. Dadashev offered little response and McGirt then had the ring doctor stop the fight. The late Russian boxer was losing on all three judges scores by the fight’s conclusion. ESPN boxing analyst and multiple world champion Timothy Bradley was emotional when analyzing the series of events in the fight’s aftermath regarding the immediate attention in the ring before Dadashev collapsed on his way back to the dressing room. Bradley held the WBC light welterweight title twice between 2008 and 2011, the WBO light welterweight title from 2009 to 2012, and the WBO welterweight title twice between 2012 and 2016. During an appearance on SportsCenter Bradley questioned why it took so long for adequate treatment to reach after Dadashev was seen “stumbling” and “vomiting” while leaving the ring.“Buddy McGirt stopped the fight at the right time,” Bradley said. “After that where was the care? That’s the only problem I have.  I feel they dropped the ball right there.” A source speaking on the condition of anonymity told the AFRO that this wasn’t the first time a severely injured fighter was inhibited from getting immediate treatment during a fight card at the venue.  In April, first responders experienced difficulty as they tried to get a stretcher to the ring. However, the unnamed boxer – for privacy reasons – survived.Dadashev was taken to University of Maryland at Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly, Maryland. He underwent surgery to relieve pressure from his brain.  However, two days later he passed away.McGirt, a former two-time world champion himself, was commended for stopping the fight when he did.  Nonetheless, the loss of Dadashev was a painful loss.“It just makes you realize what type of sport we’re in, man,” McGirt told ESPN. “He did everything right in training. No problems, no nothing.”“Great, great guy. He was a trainer’s dream. If I had two more guys like him, I wouldn’t need anybody else because he was truly dedicated to the sport.”last_img read more
