Police capture Balram Ragbubir T20 cricket trophy

first_imgTHE Guyana Police Force (GPF) produced a disciplined all-round performance to be crowned the Balram Ragbubir T20 champions when they whipped Guyana Defence Force (GDF) by four wickets yesterday in the final, played at Police Sports Club ground.Chasing 123 for victory, man-of-the-match Jason Heyliger stroked an unbeaten 33-ball 35 to seal the win, with 2.3 overs to spare after Police were reduced to 71-5 at one stage.GDF, deciding to bat first, were restricted to 122-8. However, they were largely indebted to opener Leon Andrews who made a composed 44.GDF lost opener Quacy McPherson (0|) and Doris Nedd (14) off the bowling of Grisean Grant, at 24-2, but Andrews shared 36 runs for the third-wicket with Isaiah Bijadder (19) and 32 runs for the fourth-wicket, with Damion Waldron (16), to stage the much-needed recovery.Thereafter, GDF lost four quick wickets, including Andrews who hit three fours and a six in his stay at the crease.Grant (2-13), Heyliger (2-32) and Trevon Benn (1-18) were the successful bowlers for Police.In reply, Police lost Sherwin McPherson off the bowling of Jomal Chisolm for 14 at 15-1 but fellow opener Odennel Hill then opened up and played some awesome shots, dominating the 38-run second-wicket stand with Paul Tyndall who contributed only five runs before he was bowled by Andres.Rawle Browne was then run-out in a mix-up with Hill, to leave the batting side 58-3 when a short shower interrupted play.Upon resumption, Andres struck two telling blows in the 11th over. He first trapped Hill leg-before-wicket for a 29-ball 37, inclusive of six fours and a six, before he had Kevin Leitch caught down the leg-side without scoring.With 52 needed off nine overs Heyliger was joined by Benn, and the duo took the score within eight runs from the winning total before Benn departed.However, Heyliger and Randy Knights sealed the win comfortably. Heyliger hit four fours and a six in this knock.last_img read more

Ten-man Liverpool grateful for van Dijk double

first_imgSpanish replacement Adrian came on but his first act was to pick the ball out of the net as Lewis Dunk rolled the free-kick past the Liverpool wall and an unprepared goalkeeper.The loss in midweek of influential midfielder Fabinho had taken the gloss off a successful period for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with an ankle injury ruling the Brazilian out for six weeks.But the mood around Anfield before kick-off was certainly lifted when news came through from the north-east that their rivals Manchester City had unexpectedly dropped two points at Newcastle.It did not take long for that mood to improve still further as Liverpool set about their task of attempting to move 11 points clear of Pep Guardiola’s side, the defending champions and the team still seen as their greatest challengers.It took 18 minutes for Klopp’s men to take a deserved lead after Pascal Gross fouled Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain outside the Brighton area.Trent Alexander-Arnold floated in the perfect free-kick and van Dijk rose powerfully above Adam Webster to head in his second goal of the season and first since the opening day of the season.It did not take as long for van Dijk to wait for his third of the season — six minutes to be precise — as Brighton failed to learn from conceding the opener and allowed the same combination to double the lead.This time it was from a left-wing corner as Alexander-Arnold delivered a perfect centre and the Dutch defender rose magnificently to beat Dunk and power a bullet header past a helpless Mat Ryan.In between, van Dijk might have found the back of the net again, only this time his own, as he sliced a Davy Propper cross that flew inches wide of Liverpool’s far post.But that was a rare moment of respite for Brighton, whose poor set-piece defending had left them facing a near impossible task against a Liverpool side unbeaten in home league games since Crystal Palace beat them in April 2017, 951 days ago.Ryan had already made three key saves to keep his side in contention, two from Roberto Firmino and another from Sadio Mane.But, as the half progressed, there were moments of concern for a Liverpool side without a clean sheet in 11 games.Jordan Henderson filled the absent Fabinho’s holding midfield position although he could not prevent the visitors from creating a couple of glorious openings late in the half as Propper was denied by Alisson and Dunk missed the target, unmarked, from 12 yards.There were similar glimmers of hope for the visitors early in the second half, Dunk glancing a header wide and Aaron Connolly shooting straight at Alisson, before Liverpool began to threaten on the counter attack.In the late drama that followed Alisson’s dismissal Brighton pressed for an equaliser.Adrian saved well from Aaron Mooy but almost fumbled a header from Gross into his own goal.0Shares0000(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool held on for a 2-1 win over Brighton despite goalkeeper Alisson being sent off with under a quarter-of-an-hour remaining © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Nov 30 – A first-half brace from Virgil van Dijk lifted Liverpool 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League in a 2-1 win over Brighton that was filled with drama after the sending off of home goalkeeper Alisson.The Brazilian was dismissed on 76 minutes as he raced out of his area to handle an attempted chip by Brighton substitute Leandro Trossard.last_img read more

Stanford U: Future wearables to diagnose diseases early?

first_imgFollow the Puck Related Posts David Curry Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Wearables of the future might be used as a diagnostic tool to spot disease early, according to a study by the Stanford University School of Medicine.The researchers collected approximately two billion measurements from 60 people for the study, who wore between one and eight commercial wearable devices. Using that data, the researchers were able to recognize changes in a person’s heartrate, blood oxygen, skin temperature, sleep, and calories burnt, which correlate with the onset of a disease.See also: Fitbit buys Pebble as wearables consolidation continuesTo prove the system worked, head researcher Michael Snyder successfully diagnosed he had Lyme disease in Norway, using only the data collected from seven “biosensors” he was wearing at the time.It is impressive that the researchers were able to diagnose diseases early with commercial wearables, but for consumers, there might still be a few years wait before similar diagnostic tools are available on app stores.That is because most commercial wearables are not medical devices and have not been approved for medical use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Connecting the wearables to a diagnostics platform may result in a ban for the wearable or the app.Some wearables makers FDA-shy?Some suppliers, like Jawbone, are looking into building medical devices that are available to consumers, but the FDA has drawn a hardline on how these devices should be marketed. It might be a while before a device can be approved by the FDA and commercially available to all consumers, regardless of their health.Apple reportedly tried to convince the FDA to approve the original Watch, which was said to be full of health sensors, but the federal department rejected Apple’s device.Fitbit, the market leader, has not made any major moves to add health sensors and receive FDA approval, which might mean we have to wait even longer for medical grade devices or applications that can diagnose disease from the device data.center_img How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Tags:#health#Internet of Things#IoT#jawbone#medical#Stanford University#wearable Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You…last_img read more
