first_imgMan Utd U18 coach Ryan: We’ll protect Greenwood from hypeby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United U18 coach Neil Ryan says they’re determined to protect Mason Greenwood from the hype around him.Greenwood, 17, hit a matchwinning hat-trick as United inflicted a first Youth Cup defeat on Chelsea since the 2013 final in an enthralling 4-3 victory at Leigh Sports Village on Monday night.”We’re a good club for making sure to fight all that hype down,” Ryan told the Manchester Evening News. “Because he’s still got a long way to go, let’s get it right.”He’s doing very, very well this year. He was on the bench in the week against Valencia, which was a great experience for him. We’ve got great staff looking after him on and off the pitch and ourselves, as coaching staff, it’s our jobs to make sure we get him to the next level. It’s going to be a challenge for him, but a great challenge.”He’s had a fantastic four or five months so far and we’ve got to keep working with him.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

If the Knicks do end up with the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft, the common opinion is that they will select Duke freshman center Jahlil Okafor, but there are other possible candidates. One prospect who might be worthy of the top pick is Ohio State playmaking freshman guard D’Angelo Russell. The 6-foot-5 Russell is having a monster season in Columbus, and Knicks team president Phil Jackson is reportedly going to watch him play tonight against Nebraska. Word from the Schott that some dude named Phil Jackson will be in the house…Gee…wonder who he’s scouting?— Matt McCoy (@MattMcCoyWTVN) February 26, 2015 Jackson has to cover all of his bases. The Knicks need a lot of help, and can’t afford to bungle their lottery selection, no matter where they will pick. Either Russell or Okafor would be a win for a franchise in dire need of them.last_img read more

Storage failures of eggs and embryos gain a new perspective

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Nov 20 2018On March 3, 2018, a liquid nitrogen storage tank at the University Hospitals Fertility Center in Cleveland failed. Dr. Eli Adashi, a professor of medical science at Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School, characterized the event as a “tragic accident” in which 950 patients lost more than 4,000 frozen eggs and embryos.However, one couple’s wrongful death lawsuit following the incident, which seeks to establish that embryos should be treated as “persons” under the law, could have “a chain of profound implications for other families,” Adashi says.In an “Ideas and Opinions” article published on Nov. 20 in Annals of Internal Medicine, Adashi and co-authors I. Glenn Cohen, a professor of law at Harvard University, and Dov Fox, a professor of law policy and bioethics at the University of San Diego, wrote about the potential implications should the Ohio court hearing the case rule in favor of the couple. They argue that a ruling in favor of the plaintiffs could lead to limits on abortion, stem cell research and in vitro fertilization (IVF).”It would be a sad irony if a legal claim aimed at protecting the rights of those who lost their ability to reproduce had the effect of limiting the reproductive rights of countless others,” the authors wrote.The plaintiffs in the case, Wendy and Rick Penniman, are challenging a legal precedent in Ohio establishing that “a fetus that is not yet viable is not a ‘person’ under its wrongful death law,” the authors wrote. The challenge is based on “the grounds that the ‘life of a person begins at the moment of conception,'” the article notes.A ruling that embryos are “persons” could be used as grounds to limit abortion rights, the authors say, as well as to potentially restrict research on embryonic stem cells. There could be implications for the future of IVF as well.”IVF would be significantly compromised,” Adashi said. “If a clinician were to freeze embryos, and some do not survive the process, how would that be dealt with? Would that be manslaughter? One needs to view this suit in that context. The implications are of national interest. They go beyond the pro-life / pro-choice debate and reach into the very conduct of IVF and other fertility promotion techniques.”Legal limitationsRelated StoriesScientists develop universal FACS-based approach to heterogenous cell sorting, propelling organoid researchSchwann cells capable of generating protective myelin over nerves finds researchMost women glad to do genetic testing before IVF, reports surveyThe authors also discuss the limitations of conventional legal strategies tried in similar cases, including breach of contract, medical malpractice, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and loss of property.Many fertility clinics require patients to sign waivers that explicitly excuse liability for storage failures due to negligence, limiting breach of contract suits, the authors wrote. Medical malpractice also doesn’t apply in a case such as this, because the egg-harvesting procedures were performed properly. And in Ohio, negligent infliction of emotional distress requires the plaintiffs to be “bystanders” to a physical threat to another person; in this case, they did not witness the tank failure, the authors wrote.The last strategy, loss of property and medical costs, doesn’t fully capture the painful disruption of “family-building plans,” Adashi said. However, these are the legal grounds the other 70 other patients affected by the accident are pursing in their class-action lawsuit.The legal system hasn’t established appropriate venues for seeking damages for the destruction of eggs or embryos, he added. “At this point, there’s no clarity in the courts as to how to deal with cases like this.”Revising regulationsAccidents happen, but more needs to be done to limit and track them, Adashi said.”It was a wake-up call for a lot of people in the field,” he said. “How do we deal with something like this? How do we prevent something like this? Who should be in charge?”Professional societies in the fertility field are evaluating the root cause of the incident and are working on new recommendations and guidelines, Adashi said, in an effort to avoid similar situations in the future.The authors note that currently there are few federal regulations pertaining to assisted reproduction technologies and there is no system for tracking reproductive errors in the U.S. Because agents from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) already visit IVF labs to screen donated human tissues for communicable diseases, Adashi says the FDA would be the most relevant agency to assume responsibility for the liquid nitrogen freezers involved in assisted reproduction clinics and track accidents involving eggs and embryos.

Serena and Halep chase milestones in Wimbledon final

first_imgLONDON (Reuters) – Serena Williams no longer wants to obsess about elusive Grand Slam “number 24” and Simona Halep is desperate to win Wimbledon more than to stop the American reaching that milestone but there will be no place for either to hide in Saturday’s final.No matter who wins the title decider on Centre Court, the one thing for certain is that it will be a historic occasion.The 37-year-old Williams is chasing an eighth All England Club singles crown which would see her match Australian Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 major singles titles.National pride will be at stake for Halep as she bids to become the first Romanian to win a singles title at the spiritual home of grasscourt tennis.–– ADVERTISEMENT –– Tennis 09 Jul 2019 Tennis-Wimbledon day eight Related News Tennis 23m ago Chilling Halep bubbles to the boil to win Wimbledon Halep said if she dwelt on Williams’ records over the past 21 years it might be game over before she stepped on court for a contest compatriot and gymnastics great Nadia Comaneci said would be “watched by every Romanian alive on the planet”.”I will focus on myself. I’m not thinking about her record. Her records are huge already. It’s nothing about that. It’s just a tennis match, big challenge, a great match. So I will try just to give my best,” said Halep, who has lost just one set so far.A quick study of their rivalry would also suggest Williams will probably be the one holding aloft the Venus Rosewater dish considering she has won nine of their previous 10 meetings. The 27-year-old Halep’s only victory over Williams was almost five years ago, while the American has won all three of their Grand Slam clashes, including at Wimbledon in 2011.So which memory from those tussles will Williams rely on as she gets ready for what could be one of the most memorable days in the history of women’s tennis? BIGGEST KEY”The biggest key with our matches is the (6-0 6-2) loss that I had. I never forgot it,” said the 11th seed, who is also bidding to become the first mother to triumph at Wimbledon since Australian Evonne Goolagong beat American Chris Evert in 1980. “She played unbelievable. That makes me know that… she can get there again. So I have to be better than that.”There’s so many impressive things about her. Obviously her tenacity, her ability to find power. Can’t underestimate her. She’s like a little powerhouse. I feel like she’s back. She wants to prove that she can do it again.”Halep will also take heart from their battle at this year’s Australian Open being a close one and the fact that she has more than just an A-game in her repertoire.”I have a better game these days. I can play everywhere, against anyone. When I go on court… I know how to change some things when (other things) don’t work very well,” said the 2018 French Open champion. “Now, I believe that I have my chance to win against her. I respect a lot what she has done and what she’s doing. But I feel mentally stronger facing her.”A ‘Plan B’ or even ‘Plan C’ could come in handy for Halep as Williams was at her devastating best in a 59-minute destruction of unseeded Czech Barbora Strycova in the semi-finals. Moving as smoothly and striking the ball as crisply and as powerfully as at any time in her career, the American has so far unleashed 45 aces and won 83 percent of her service games. Playing mixed doubles with Andy Murray, albeit in a losing cause this week, has also helped her to sharpen her volleys – an ominous sight for anyone on the opposite side of the net.Williams has already had two failed attempts in finals to win that 24th major – after contesting last year’s Wimbledon and U.S. Open showpiece matches – and, regardless of what she says, everyone knows the American wants that record. “I just trained and I trained and I trained to get physically more fit. So I’m definitely at a different place,” said Williams.”It’s really not about 24 or 23 or 25. It’s really just about going out there and giving my best effort no matter what. No matter what I do, I will always have a great career.” (Reporting by Pritha Sarkar; Editing by Ken Ferris)center_img Related News Tennis 11 Jul 2019 Factbox: Elina Svitolina versus Simona Halep {{category}} {{time}} {{title}}last_img read more
