first_imgCrouch questions Liverpool nerves after RB Salzburg winby Ansser Sadiq22 days agoSend to a friendShare the lovePeter Crouch has questioned Liverpool’s nerves after Wednesday’s 4-3 win over RB Salzburg in the Champions League.The European champions blew a three-goal lead at Anfield when Erling Braud Haaland equalised for the visitors.And Crouch says the performance was “absolutely mental” from his former side.”It was mental, absolutely mental,” Crouch said on BT Sport.”Liverpool were flying, playing some of the best attacking football I have seen from them this season. And then the second half, I don’t even know where to begin. 3-3, I just couldn’t have seen it, and then Salah pops up with the winner.”An incredible match, highly entertaining, but for the wrong reasons for Liverpool in the end. They got a bit nervy Liverpool, you have to say.”Once the first goal went in, then the second, Fabinho, whose normally so calm on the ball, was passing it out of play, they weren’t as intricate as they were in the first half.”So it definitely affected them but the fourth goal killed them off and then they controlled the game and managed it out.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Ancient bacterial mats may have been key to first mobile animals

first_img The mats, which the researchers believe are likely similar to the type that evolved in some early lagoons during the Ediacaran Period, some 542 million years ago (the time most agree multicellular animals first began to appear) are comprised of a bottom layer of sulphide-oxidizing bacteria, which is covered by a top layer of blue green algae, which produces the oxygen through photosynthesis. They found oxygen levels of between 0.25 and 0.45 atm near the mats, compared to 0.10 at or near the surface.The findings are important because fossil evidence suggests mobile animals first evolved in early salty lagoons that should have been too salty to produce normal plant growth.Of course there is one hiccup in the theory, and that is the fact that the mats only produce oxygen during the day when the sun is shining; oxygen levels around the mats plunge at night, leaving the lagoons a very inhospitable place. However, at Los Roques, there are some insect larvae that exist inside the mats that for the most part shut down at night; hibernating, if you will, and thus can survive with almost no oxygen when it’s dark. Gingras and his team support the notion that perhaps some early life forms could have done the same, though others are not quite ready to jump on that bandwagon.Another issue is that the results are based on the notion that the mats that exist today are in fact the same as the mats that existed way back then; a bit of a leap seeing as how there is really no evidence to support such a supposition. Thus, in order for the ideas suggested in this paper to gain credence, evidence of some similarity will have to be found through further research. © 2010 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

In situ fossils of the mobile forms of these animals are associated with microbial sedimentary structures1, 2, 3, and the animal’s trace fossils generally were formed parallel to the surface of the seabed, at or below the sediment–water interface4, 5. This evidence suggests the earliest mobile animals inhabited settings with high microbial populations, and may have mined microbially bound sediments for food resources6, 7, 8. Here we report the association of mobile animals—insect larvae, oligochaetes and burrowing shore crabs—with microbial mats in a modern hypersaline lagoon in Venezuela. The lagoon is characterized by low concentrations of dissolved O2 and pervasive biomats dominated by oxygen-producing cyanobacteria, both analogous to conditions during the Ediacaran. We find that, during the day, O2 levels in the biomats are four times higher than in the overlying water column. We therefore conclude that the animals harvest both food and O2 from the biomats. In doing so, the animals produce horizontal burrows similar to those found in Ediacaran-aged rocks. We suggest that early mobile animals may have evolved in similar environments during the Ediacaran, effectively exploiting oases rich in O2 that formed within low oxygen settings.

Image illustration: Nature Geoscience, doi:10.1038/ngeo1142 (PhysOrg.com) — Researchers from Canada studying the highly salty coastal lagoons at Los Roques, Venezuela and the microbial mats found at the bottom of the sea there, have discovered that oxygen levels in the mats, at least in the day time, are high enough to support the development of mobile life forms. Led by University of Alberta palaeontologist, Murray Gingras, the team writes in Nature Geoscience, that levels of oxygen on the ocean floor were up to four times as high as that near the surface; high enough to support the development of mobile sea life; which the team believes could explain how early life forms could have evolved in waters with high salt concentrations.

The language of music

first_imgAgainst the backdrop of rapid urbanization and growing metro culture which has created vulnerability of the traditional artistes, the project presents a compelling vision for indigenous design, the redesign of new economies centred on innovation, well being and compassion. The project emphasise values like, How the wisdom of the past can be made accessible to people.The project presents both traditional and new instruments based on Indian sitar, Burmese saung harp, Thai xylophone, Korean kayagum, Chinese guzheng and pipa, Vietnamese dan tranh, Javanese and Balinese gamelan, chanting and others. New instruments with embedded computation demonstrate interactions through gesture, touch, pull, movement, gaze and kinesthetic action. In addition, through responsive computing, people by their position, gesture, and movements control musical events in the exhibition environment.The museum landscapes exhibition builds on a series multimedia museum works, showing intersections between traditional and modern art, design and technology, such that the results help both traditional and modern societies. The works show that the wisdom of traditional communities can positively negate the homogenising aesthetics of modern media technology.When: On till 16 January 2014Where: National Museumlast_img read more

TMC heavyweights go on campaign trail across state

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress candidates across the state hit the campaign trail on Sunday, with party leaders Subrata Mukherjee, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Mala Roy, Mamata Bala Thakur and Moon Moon Sen among others seen interacting with voters of their respective constituencies.Mala Roy, who is contesting from the Kolkata South seat, started her campaign near the Tollygunge railway station, accompanied by state Public Works Department (PWD) minister and Tollygunge MLA Aroop Biswas. Roy braved the scorching summer heat and walked across ward 81 of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC), interacting with the people. She gave a patient hearing to problems in her constituency, including those of the slum dwellers and assured them that she would address the issues, if she is elected.

Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, TMC candidate from the Barasat seat, attended a programme of the Matua community at Akarampur in Habra on Sunday. She also danced to the tunes of a devotional song of the community. The votes from the Matua community, which accounts for around 10 percent of the total votes, are going to be a factor in the Barasat seat. Trinamool Congress candidate from Bongaon Mamata Bala Thakur offered her prayers at Jaleshwar Temple in Gaighata and also went to a nearby mosque to seek blessings from the head of the mosque. She then walked in and around the Jaleshwar area, seeking votes. Trinamool Congress candidate from Asansol Moon Moon Sen campaigned at Amritnagar in Ranigunj. Addressing a public gathering, she said that some Opposition parties may come and offer money, seeking votes. “If they offer money, you take it but you should vote for Didi (Mamata Banerjee),” she maintained.last_img read more
