Back in the Game Derrick Rose Drops 13 Points

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is officially back. After missing 17 months of basketball because of knee surgery, the superstar player returned to the court Saturday night. In the Bulls’ preseason opener, he scored 13 points in 20 minutes in an 82-76 win over the Indiana Pacers.Rose looked good in his return and appeared to be enjoying the moment. He exhibited his speed and quickness thoughout his 20 mins of play. He also had a breakaway jam in the third quarter.The former MVP, Rose did turn the ball over four times, but showed no hesitation while attacking the rim. He went to the basket as if he never was injured, even taking it to Pacers center Roy Hibbert at times.Back in April of 2012, Rose injured his left knee by tearing his ACL in the first game of the Eastern Conference playoffs. read more

ATT and CBS end blackout restore service

first_img 6 Comments AT&T CBS DirecTV Share your voice CBS and AT&T’s contract dispute affected subscribers of DirecTV Now and other services. Getty Images CBS channels will be restored Thursday for AT&T’s DirecTV, DirecTV Now and other pay-TV customers, after the two companies reached a deal and ended a nearly three-week blackout.CBS and AT&T said Thursday that their multi-year deal will cover the CBS-owned stations of its namesake broadcast channel, the CBS Sports Network and the Smithsonian Channel across DirecTV, DirecTV Now and U-verse, as well as the upcoming TV platforms that AT&T hopes to launch. (Editors’ note: CNET is owned by CBS.)AT&T aims to launch a Netflix-like streaming service called HBO Max in spring 2020, but that isn’t expected to carry live channels. The blackout hit AT&T pay-TV customers in 17 cities — New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Tampa, Seattle, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore — as well as more than 100 CBS stations and affiliates on DirecTV Now. It stemmed from a dispute over the rates that AT&T pays CBS to carry the channels, after the companies’ 2012 agreement expired last month. In a brief joint statement, the companies didn’t disclose financial terms.”CBS and AT&T regret any inconvenience to their customers and viewers and thank them for their patience,” they said.  Tags TV and Movies TVs Mobilelast_img read more

Alien hunter spots another anomaly on Mars a monkey

first_imgET Data BasePopular Taiwanese alien hunter Scott C Waring has spotted many anomalies from NASA images over the past few years. Some of the anomalies spotted by Scott C Waring from NASA’s Mars images seemed so convincing, and it had made many people believe that aliens are living on the Red Planet. Now, Waring has released another NASA image from the Mars, that apparently shows a monkey sitting on the Red Planet’s surface.After spotting the monkey on Mars, Waring alleged that NASA may have never visited Mars, and these visuals might have been shot from Devon Island. As per Waring, if the picture was captured originally from Mars, then it could be proof of alien life on the Red Planet.”I found the original and the monkey is in it…this is 100% proof that the photo has not been tampered with. But now we have other problems. Is the rover on Devon Island in Canada? Are there monkeys on Devon island? Maybe, but not sure. Maybe NASA brought the monkey to experiment on it in the Martian environment. Maybe it could be a form of animal life on Mars. Who knows? The only way to find out, is for the public to go there,” wrote Waring on his website.A few days back, Waring has released an image that shows a bird flying in the Martian skies. The image shared by Waring went viral on social media platforms, and it compelled many people to believe that NASA is hiding some sinister secrets from the general public.Even though followers of Waring are pretty much impressed about the self-proclaimed researcher’s finding, skeptics reveal that the discoveries of Waring are classic cases of pareidolia. As per experts, pareidolia is a peculiar capability of the human brain to form recognizable images on unknown patterns.Earlier, after spotting fossil-like structures on images taken by NASA from Mars, Waring had urged United States president Donald Trump to appoint him as the head of NASA. Waring also claimed that all the secrets regarding alien life will be disclosed if he gets a chance to work as the head of the United States space agency.last_img read more

Evidence of giant tsunami on Mars suggests an early ocean

first_img Explore further This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Scientists have been investigating the possibility of oceans on Mars for several years, but have so far been unable to prove they existed. Also, other researchers have found evidence for tsunamis on Mars but have not been able to find an associated oceanic impact crater to go along with it. In this new effort, the researchers believe they have found both.Prior research uncovered what has been described as thumbprint-looking terrain on the surface of Mars, which some researchers have ascribed to mud moving downhill from volcanoes or being pushed by glaciers. But they might have been created by a very large tsunami, the researchers suggest, and they have found a crater that they believe might have been the cause of it. Lomonosov crater, they suggest, situated in the northern plains, could very well be the scar that was left as a reminder of an asteroid striking in a northern ocean, generating waves hundreds of feet high, eventually spilling onto land and leaving enormous deposits behind. If such an asteroid did strike the ocean, the team continues, after diving through the water, it would have created a crater on the ocean floor. That crater would have been a void that would be suddenly filled with water from all sides, smashing together, creating a secondary tsunami following behind the first. As the first tsunami was receding over land, the second tsunami would have struck, and it was those two acting together that the researchers believe caused the characteristic thumbprint ridges to come about. They have used numerical modeling of wave propagation to back up their claims.The researchers contend that no other reasonable explanation exists for the creation of the ridges, which, they suggest, offers a degree of evidence of not just a tsunami but an ocean on Mars.

Modeling tsunami propagation and the emplacement of thumbprint terrain in an early Mars ocean, Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets (2017). DOI: 10.1002/2016JE005230AbstractThe identification of lobate debris deposits in Arabia Terra, along the proposed paleoshoreline of a former northern ocean, has renewed questions about the existence and stability of ocean-sized body of water in the early geologic history of Mars. The potential occurrence of impact-generated tsunamis in a northern ocean was investigated by comparing the geomorphologic characteristics of the Martian deposits with the predictions of well-validated terrestrial models (scaled to Mars) of tsunami wave height, propagation direction, runup elevation, and distance for three potential sea levels. Our modeling suggests several potential impact craters ~30–50 km in diameter as the source of the tsunami events. Within the complex topography of flat-floored valleys and plateaus along the dichotomy boundary, the interference of the multiple reflected and refracted waves that are observed in the simulation may explain the origin of the arcuate pattern that characterizes the thumbprint terrain.

In their paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, the group outlines the evidence and why they believe a tsunami is the most likely factor that led to the creation of some unique planetary formations.last_img read more

When small is big

first_imgRanging from a diminutive 3.5 x 5 inches mixed media work by Laxma Goud to Paresh Maity’s oil on canvas in 20 x 16 inches, the show is indeed a treasure house of little gems. Executed in varied mediums like watercolour, oil, acrylic, collage, etching and mixed media, the show includes works by artists like A Ramachandran, Alok Uniyal, Ashok Hazra, Avijit Dutta, Chotu Lal, Devdatta Padekar, Dushyant Patel, Jayasri Burman, KS Kulkarni, Laxma Goud, Maite Deltiel, Maya Burman, Nayanaa Kanodia, Neelkant Choudhary, Neeraj Goswami, Paresh Maity, Roohan Segel, Satish Gujral and Sakti Burman. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Shobha Bhatia, Director, Gallerie Ganesha said: “In the field of science, the shift has been from macro to micro. Scientists are constantly making new discoveries in the realm of quantum physics which change entire perspectives and question founded theories. In the field of art also, artists are constantly trying to innovate and challenge the ground rules. Cut to Size is an endeavour to experiment with small format works, which are in a sense part of our ancient tradition as seen in the Mughal, Rajput and Pahari schools, and bring it centre-stage with a new contemporary twist.” Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhile many of the artists in the show are mostly known for their large-scale works which gives them freedom of space, they admit that creating small format work is indeed a challenge. Neelkant Choudhary, who is known for giving Madhubani a contemporary flavor said, “It is always a challenge to try and work on a ‘miniature’ format, as effectively, without losing out on the finer nuances of art. A smaller format requires more focused and an effectively worked on miniature/ small format painting can be like a little gem, with all its facets intact.”  There is yet another reason why artists are attracted to the small format. “Smaller format works are the need of the hour,” argues artist Alok Uniyal whose work has always been inspired by Indian miniature art. He added, “In today’s world, where everything is becoming small —homes, relationships, recall value — small format works, doesn’t it?” Uniyal, on a more serious note, shares that he was exposed to the charm of small format works during his academic years and finds no difficulty in imparting his signature style of elongated eyes, bold strokes and a vivid colour palette to his small format works even now. He said, “However, working in small format is always a risk, and a challenge.” He added, his smallest work is a 6 by 8 inches canvas. Artist Devdatta Padekar said, “One needs a lot of discipline and focus to create a work in the small format. I make smaller works as a regular practice and the intensity, the detailing and the expression in each is as vivid as it would be in a large work.”Artist Dushyant Patel, who recalls his smallest work being a 4 x 7 inches one, imparts yet another reason to why viewers are attracted to the small format. “Smaller works are more affordable. And if the image one creates suits that particular size, anyone would want to have such a work on their walls,” he said.When: September 1 to 22Where: Gallerie Ganesha, E-557, Greater Kailash IITimings:  11 am to 7 pmlast_img read more

Keep your furry friend warm this winter

first_imgThe winters are here and understanding how to take care of your dog during the season is important. Change in weather conditions, decreasing temperature and other dangers of winter may pose a number of expected and unexpected health threats to them. Therefore, being a responsible pet parent, you have to take care of your best friend just as you would for yourself with proper clothes, food and restriction from unnecessary outdoor activities. Dr KG Umesh, Waltham Scientific Communication Manager, South Asia, Mars India said, “By taking some basic precautions and paying attention to the needs of your four-legged friend, responsible pet owners can help their dogs make it through the winter in good health. To keep your pet fit and healthy this season, make sure you’re maintaining an appropriate diet and following some simple indoor tips. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Feeding: Give your pet more food during cold weather than you do during hot months. Pets need extra food because exercising outdoors in cold weather takes more energy. However, be cautious that pets are more likely to gain weight during winter time and are more likely to suffer injury and illness than pets who maintain a normal weight range.Exercise: Most Pets will not exercise by themselves, hence take advantage of breaks in the weather by taking short walks with your dog. Even a few minutes of exercise will help make a difference. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixDry Cleaning: Don’t neglect pet grooming in the winter. Your dog probably won’t get very dirty in the winter, and you may not need to bathe them. But if you do, it’s very important that you keep them warm after the shower. Don’t let them go outside until dried. Hair Shedding: Hair loss is a common complaint with dogs in India. Photoperiod (light intensity) is the main factor behind nutrition, genetics, health that can cause dogs to shed hair excessively during some seasons. However, we suggest visiting a veterinary doctor and getting your dog examined to rule out any parasites like fleas, ticks, mange or allergy, hormonal imbalance, bacterial or yeast infection that causes hair loss.Vaccination, De-worming and regular health check are important considerations during winter periods.last_img read more
