Games are scheduled to resume on July 30.Any player who tests positive faces a two-week quarantine period before he can be cleared to return to the court. A physician will determine when the isolation period is over, a process that will include a cardiac screening.Matthew Martinez, a consulting cardiologist for the NBA Players Association, stressed to ESPN that players will need time to rest after a positive test because doctors believe “the amount of cardiac damage can increase if you continue to exercise in the face of an active infection.”The effects of COVID-19 on cardiac health, including myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), are “not yet fully understood,” the league wrote in a memo sent to teams on June 15, per ESPN.According to the American College of Cardiology’s Sports and Exercise Cardiology Council, “Acute cardiac injury … occur(s) in up to 22 percent of hospitalized patients with COVID-19, which is significantly higher compared with the approximately 1 percent prevalence in non-COVID-19 acute viral infections.”Myocarditis “could result in cardiac dysfunction, arrhythmias, and death,” the council said.John DiFiori, the NBA’s director of sports medicine, told ESPN he would urge any player who is diagnosed with the coronavirus to follow a physician’s advice for managing the illness.“If you don’t feel well, don’t try to push through this,” Fiori said. “This is not a situation where anyone, whether you’re an athlete or not, should try to push through or minimize symptoms or try to ignore symptoms and try to push through to try to continue to work or continue to play a sport.” Cricket Cricket WTC Final LIVE, IND vs NZ: Cheteshwar Pujara’s poor run continues, scores 8 off 54 in crucial match against Kiwis Cricket IND VS NZ Live: New Zealand’s body attack on India, Cheteshwar Pujara & Shubman Gill get hit on helmetslast_img read more

With BA in ‘battle for survival’, why I think IAG shares are likely to plummet further

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. It has been reported in the media within the last week that British Airways’ chief executive, Alex Cruz, has said the airline is in a battle to survive. In a message to staff he said that there would be job losses and planes would be grounded.The outbreak of coronavirus is being talked of as a greater threat to the airline than 9/11, or the financial crash over a decade ago.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The International Air Transport Association has estimated globally that the virus will hit airlines to the tune of £113bn, this year alone.This is why there have been calls from the airline industry for government help, but whether that will be forthcoming is yet to be seen. Whether EU rules on state aid prevent it, is also yet to be tested.What does it mean for parent company IAG?The latest from FTSE 100 parent company IAG (LSE: IAG) is that long-serving chief executive Willie Walsh will postpone retirement to spearhead the response to coronavirus.IAG said that it would reduce its capacity in terms of available seat kilometres by 7.5% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to a year ago. By April and May, that figure will be cut by at least 75%. Actions are being taken to reduce operating costs and boost cash flow, including grounding surplus jets, cutting non-essential non-cyber-related IT spending, freezing discretionary spending, temporarily suspending employment contracts, and reducing working hours.As at 12 March, IAG said that the group had cash, cash equivalents and interest bearing deposits worth €7.35bn. This is good news. As is the fact it has been a hugely profitable group in previous years. Operating profits were £2.89bn in the 2019 full year.Plummeting share priceThe share price of IAG has fallen by 60% in just the last month. As countries around the world step up drastic actions to try and slow the spread of the virus, I only see things getting worse for airlines. The response so far is hitting the vitally important summer holiday bookings. On the plus side, executives from IAG have been buying shares, which is a sign of confidence. And, the oil price has also plummeted, which reduces a key cost for the company.  I expect IAG will survive given the amount of cash it has. I think management has acted quickly and built a strong business. But if coronavirus persists, there seems little to reason to invest, even after the recent steep share price falls.The best course of action seems to be to wait to see if there’s a second wave of coronavirus, as has been predicted. At that point, I would still wait to buy IAG shares when the stock market recovers. At that point, with weaker airlines likely having failed, IAG’s airlines could pick up market share and highly profitable airport slots. In the long term, the share price should do well.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

They will be launched to coincide with the Society’s Alzheimer’s Awareness Week in July 2004 and will raise money for people with dementia, their carers and families. The use of children’s TV characters is apt because Alzheimer’s Awareness Week 2004 aims to help children and young people understand what dementia is and how it might affect someone they know – a parent, grandparent or neighbour.

Akai Gurley’s aunt: ‘Time to dismantle this system’

first_imgTalk given by Hertencia Petersen at March 5 International Working Women’s Day rally in Harlem, N.Y.Nelson Mandela once said, “Freedom cannot be achieved unless women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression.” It takes a very wise man to understand the role a woman plays in society.My name is Hertencia Petersen and I am the aunt of Akai Gurley, who was murdered by NYPD [New York Police Department] rookie officer Peter Liang on November 20th, 2014.My sister Sylvia will never get to hold or see her son again. She wants Peter Liang to be held accountable for murdering her son. “Where is the justice for Akai Gurley?” she continues to ask. Whether you’re white, Black, Chinese or Latino, you must be held accountable for taking an innocent human life. We must remember genocide is not an accident. Akai Gurley being murdered is not an accident.It’s an honor to be here, surrounded with some strong sisters. As we know, women have always been labeled as the weaker ones. Physically that might be true to an extent, but otherwise I disagree. We only think differently than our male counterparts.We are here today to say we are sick and tired of our loved ones being murdered by police brutality. We are tired of the racist system that has been criminalizing our communities, dehumanizing our sisters and mothers. We have been fighting a system that is corrupted, racist against people of color and [against] women as well.What we have been struggling to get is equal pay; decent, affordable housing; and health insurance, not only for ourselves but for our children; and programs and safe houses for domestic violence victims; etc.The system has put such a strain on our state of mind with oppression, trying to keep us oppressed. Look around and ask yourself, why are we hated so much? Why do we have to fight for everything we need in this world?We must celebrate diversity and embrace unity to fight for our rights as human beings. Shirley Chisholm said that in the end, anti-Black, anti-female and all forms of discrimination are equivalent to the same thing: anti-humanism.As women we would do anything to protect our family. If that means fighting against a system that doesn’t respect women, then I say we dismantle this system! Just imagine if we were to unite and stand in solidarity with all people of color, male and female, and fight this system as opposed to fighting each other. We would be a force to be reckoned with.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Caltech’s Planet Hunter: A Conversation with Dimitri Mawet

The ‘X’ marks the nulled-out star’s position. Credit: E. Serabyn, D. Mawet, and R. Burrus/Caltech/JPLAssociate Professor of Astronomy Dimitri Mawet has joined Caltech from the Paranal Observatory in Chile, where he was a staff astronomer for the Very Large Telescope. After earning his PhD at the University of Liège, Belgium, in 2006, he was at JPL from 2007 to 2011—first as a NASA postdoctoral scholar and then as a research scientist.Q: What do you do?A: I study exoplanets, which are planets orbiting other stars. In particular, I’m developing technologies to view exoplanets directly and analyze their atmospheres. We’re hunting for small, Earth-like planets where life might exist—in other words, planets that get just the right amount of heat to maintain water in its liquid state—but we’re not there yet. For an exoplanet to be imaged right now, it has to be really big and really bright, which means it’s very hot.In order to be seen in the glare of its star, the planet has to be beyond a minimum angular separation called the inner working angle. Separations can also be expressed in astronomical units, or AUs, where one AU is the mean distance between the sun and Earth. Right now we can get down to about two AU—but only for giant planets. For example, we recently imaged Beta Pictoris and HR 8799. We didn’t find anything at two AU in either star system, but we found that Beta Pictoris harbors a planet about eight times more massive than Jupiter orbiting at 9 AU. And we see a family of four planets in the five- to seven-Jupiters range that orbit from 14 to 68 AU around HR 8799. For comparison, Saturn is 9.5 AU from the sun, and Neptune is 30 AU.Q: How can we narrow the working angle?A: You either build an interferometer, which blends the light from two or more telescopes and “nulls out” the star, or you build a coronagraph, which blots out the star’s light. Most coronagraphs block the star’s image by putting a physical mask in the optical path. The laws of physics say their inner working angles can’t be less than the so-called diffraction limit, and most coronagraphs work at three to five times that. However, when I was a grad student, I invented a coronagraph that works at the diffraction limit.The key is that we don’t use a physical mask. Instead, we create an “optical vortex” that expels the star’s light from the instrument. Some of our vortex masks are made from liquid-crystal polymers, similar to your smartphone’s display, except that the molecules are “frozen” into orientations that force light waves passing through the center of the mask to emerge in different phase states simultaneously. This is not something nature allows, so the light’s energy is nulled out, creating a “dark hole.”If we point the telescope so the star’s image lands exactly on the vortex, its light will be filtered out, but any light that’s not perfectly centered on the vortex—such as light from the planets, or from a dust disk around the star—will be slightly off-axis and will go on through to the detector.We’re also pushing to overcome the enormous contrast ratio between the very bright star and the much dimmer planet. Getting down to the Earth-like regime requires a contrast ratio of 10 billion to 1, which is really huge. The best contrast ratios achieved on ground-based telescopes today are more like 1,000,000 to 1. So we need to pump it up by another factor of 10,000.Even so, we can do a lot of comparative exoplanetology, studying any and all kinds of planets in as many star systems as we can. The variety of objects around other stars—and within our own solar system—is mind-boggling. We are discovering totally unexpected things.Q: Such as?A: Twenty years ago, people were surprised to discover hot Jupiters, which are huge, gaseous planets that orbit extremely close to their stars—as close as 0.04 AU, or one-tenth the distance between the sun and Mercury. We have nothing like them in our solar system. They were discovered indirectly, by the wobble they imparted to their star or the dimming of their star’s light as the planet passed across the line of sight. But now, with high-contrast imaging, we can actually see—directly—systems of equally massive planets that orbit tens or even hundreds of AU’s away from their stars, which is baffling.Planets form within circumstellar disks of dust and gas, but these disks get very tenuous as you go farther from the star. So how did these planets form? One hypothesis is that they formed where we see them, and thus represent failed attempts to become multiple star systems. Another hypothesis is that they formed close to the star, where the disk is more massive, and eventually expelled one another by gravitational interactions.We’re trying to answer that question by starting at the outskirts of these planetary systems, looking for massive, hot planets in the early stages of formation, and then grind our way into the inner reaches of older planetary systems as we learn to reduce the working angle and deal with ever more daunting contrast ratios. Eventually, we will be able to trace the complete history of planetary formation.Q: How can you figure out the history?Once we see the planet, once we have its signal in our hands, so to speak, we can do all kinds of very cool measurements. We can measure its position, that’s called astrometry; we can measure its brightness, which is photometry; and, if we have enough signal, we can sort the light into its wavelengths and do spectroscopy.As you repeat the astrometry measurements over time, you resolve the planet’s orbit by following its motion around its star. You can work out masses, calculate the system’s stability. If you add the time axis to spectrophotometry, you can begin to track atmospheric features and measure the planet’s rotation, which is even more amazing.Soon we’ll be able to do what we call Doppler imaging, which will allow us to actually map the surface of the planet. We’ll be able to resolve planetary weather phenomena. That’s already been done for brown dwarfs, which are easier to observe than exoplanets. The next generation of adaptive optics on really big telescopes like the Thirty Meter Telescope should get us down to planetary-mass objects.That’s why I’m so excited about high-contrast imaging, even though it’s so very, very hard to do. Most of what we know about exoplanets has been inferred. Direct imaging will tell us so much more about exoplanets—what they are made out of and how they form, evolve, and interact with their surroundings.Q: Growing up, did you always want to be an astronomer?A: No. I wanted to get into space sciences—rockets, satellite testing, things like that. I grew up in Belgium and studied engineering at the University of Liège, which runs the European Space Agency’s biggest testing facility, the Space Center of Liège. I had planned to do my master’s thesis there, but there were no openings the year I got my diploma.I was not considering a thesis in astronomy, but I nevertheless went back to campus, to the astrophysics department. I knew some of the professors because I had taken courses with them. One of them, Jean Surdej, suggested that I work on a concept called the Four-Quadrant Phase-Mask (FQPM) coronagraph, which had been invented by French astronomer Daniel Rouan. I had been a bit hopeless, thinking I would not find a project I would like, but Surdej changed my life that day.The FQPM was one of the first coronagraphs designed for very-small-working-angle imaging of extrasolar planets. These devices performed well in the lab, but had not yet been adapted for use on telescopes. Jean, and later on Daniel, asked me to help build two FQPMs—one for the “planet finder” on the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, or VLT, in Chile; and one for the Mid-Infrared Instrument that will fly on the James Webb Space Telescope, which is being built to replace the Hubble Space Telescope.I spent many hours in Liège’s Hololab, their holographic laboratory, playing with photoresists and lasers. It really forged my sense of what the technology could do. And along the way, I came up with the idea for the optical vortex.Then I went to JPL as a NASA postdoc with Eugene Serabyn. I still spent my time in the lab, but now I was testing things in the High Contrast Imaging Testbed, which is the ultimate facility anywhere in the world for testing coronagraphs. It has a vacuum tank, six feet in diameter and eight feet long, and inside the tank is an optical table with a state-of-the-art deformable mirror. I got a few bruises crawling around in the tank setting up the vortex masks and installing and aligning the optics.The first vortex coronagraph actually used on the night sky was the one we installed on the 200-inch Hale Telescope down at Palomar Observatory. The Hale’s adaptive optics enabled us to image the planets around HR 8799, as well as brown dwarfs, circumstellar disks, and binary star systems. That was a fantastic and fun learning experience.So I developed my physics and manufacturing intuition in Liège, my experimental and observational skills at JPL, and then I went to Paranal where I actually applied my research. I spent about 400 nights observing at the VLT; I installed two new vortex coronagraphs with my Liège collaborators; and I became the instrument scientist for SPHERE, to which I had contributed 10 years before when it was called the planet finder. And I learned how a major observatory operates—the ins and outs of scheduling, and all the vital jobs that are performed by huge teams of engineers. They far outnumber the astronomers, and nothing would function without them.And now I am super excited to be here. Caltech and JPL have so many divisions and departments and satellites—like Caltech’s Division of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy and JPL’s Science Division, both my new professional homes, but also Caltech’s Division of Geology and Planetary Sciences, the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center, etc. We are well-connected to the University of California. There are so many bridges to build between all these places, and synergies to benefit from. This is really a central place for innovation. I think, for me, that this is definitely the center of the world.
