BRITAIN’S IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua believes beating Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley stadium in April would raise his status to the level of a “legend”.“This is a fight that can change (me) from champion to legend overnight,” he told a news conference yesterday, to promote the April 29 bout.“It’s the fight that will get the masses out and draw massive attention and they’re the type of fights that can change the way that people view you in your industry,” added the 27-year-old.The 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight champion has won all of his 18 professional fights well inside the distance and stopped American Eric Molina in Manchester last Saturday in the third round.Another knockout, he said, would be the “cherry on top”. The April fight between Joshua and the Ukrainian former champion, who will be 41 by then, has been officially sanctioned by the WBA for that vacant title while the Briton’s IBF belt will also be on the line.Klitschko lost the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts to Britain’s Tyson Fury in November 2015. Before that bout, he had not been beaten in 11 years and had a career record of 64 wins and three defeats.Fury vacated the WBA, WBO and IBO belts last October after having his licence suspended pending investigation of anti-doping and medical issues.He had already been stripped of the IBF belt for not fighting a mandatory challenger.Klitschko, who was ringside for the Molina fight in Manchester, has said he is “obsessed” with getting the belts back and had been training hard in the past year for fights that never happened.He recognised his last fight against Fury had not been good but said the break of nearly a year and a half could work in his favour.My motivation is as high as the sky,” said the Ukrainian. “I have to wake up. It was just a wake-up call before the big event. This is definitely a signature fight for Anthony and myself.“If Anthony wins this fight, I will congratulate him,” he said. “When I win this fight, I will help him to come back.”
Two women with outstanding warrants have added new charges to their list after they were found to be driving around town with a 16-day old infant on the floor of their car.The incident occurred in London, Kentucky Thursday.Officials say both 32-year-old Rebeca Jean Fultz and her mother, 69-year-old Charolotte J. Simpson were pulled over for outstanding warrants Thursday around 7:30 pm.While authorities conducted the arrest, Fultz informed them that her newborn was in the car. Officials reported that they could not find the infant at first, because she was not strapped into a car seat. The infant was later found on the floor of the vehicle between the passenger and front seat.Officials also reported that the infant was covered in ants, had a soiled diaper, and was laid amongst trash, an unsecured flat-screen television, and seemed to be having trouble breathing.The infant was taken to an area hospital where their condition was said to have since improved. The infant is still, however, being treated for dehydration, and will be turned over to social services.As for the child’s mother and grandmother, they have been taken to a local jail where they face child abuse charges along with their warrants.

Imagining young rings forming recently has been an embarrassment since Voyager days. A new paper by ringmaster Larry Esposito (U of Colorado) found a way to stretch them out into billions of years. The Cassini press release describes clumpy material dividing and re-forming endlessly. Finding more mass in the B-ring also helped explain the brightness of the rings for longer times: there’s more ice to dilute the incoming pollution.“We have discovered that the rings probably were not created just yesterday in cosmic time, and in this scenario, it is not just luck that we are seeing planetary rings now,” said Esposito. “They probably were always around but continually changing, and they will be around for many billions of years.”It’s doubtful the Cassini crew will wait that long to find out. This story was picked up by PhysOrg, the BBC News, National Geographic and Space.com. On December 17, Astronomy Picture of the Day reported the claim alongside a dazzling picture of the rings.What did Esposito do, invent a perpetual motion machine? What did he do with gas drag, sputtering, micrometeoroid impacts, collisional spreading and sunlight pressure? These factors are not going to care whether fluffy clumps of ice can recycle themselves. Apparently the ringmaster is also a magician; he made these problems just disappear. When the paper comes out maybe we can find the secret pockets. For most viewers, distraction is usually an effective method. It’s not that this new model lacks evidential support; there does appear to be clumpiness, and mass estimates have been revised upward by Cassini. But it only accounts for more time for the B-ring, not the other rings which are more tenuous and even younger – including the rings of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. So the problem did not go away with this announcement, despite the celebrating by the science news yahoos who never heard an old age they didn’t like. What’s driving this urge for age? Simple: Charlie needs the time. That sets the paradigm throughout science. The ringmasters have been embarrassed for 23 years since Voyager forced them to consider the rings might be young. When a phenomenon doesn’t cooperate, it must be forced into conformity; second law of thermodynamics be damned.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting jolie odell After looking over recent stats from Hitwise Intelligence on the decline of e-cards and the simultaneous rise of social media, we were stopped mid-yawn by this weird little blip on the radar:On Mothers’ Day, e-cards show a less drastic YoY decline, and social media visits actually temporarily plunge, showing a 13 percent decrease in site visits between Mothers’ Day 2008 and Mothers’ Day 2009. Do we think Mom isn’t checking her Facebook? Or is it that we consider a more old-fashioned and difficult method of communication more “personal” somehow?We asked a couple Twitter friends about this phenomenon. According to one respondent, if a mom is on Facebook, she’s fair game to start receiving her digital greetings there. On the other end of the spectrum, we were also asked, “Oh my, what happened to paper cards and handwriting?”But Mothers’ Day aside, e-cards are definitely a dying breed. Between 2008 and 2009, e-card site visits were down around 30 percent for most holidays. The exceptions were Mothers’ Day, Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving. Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving still showed robust social media use, however.It’s also to be noted that most networks have built-in reminder mechanisms for quicly and simply sending greetings to friends, while e-cards sites have to rely on your shoddy memory and sense of guilt to get their traffic.What is it about moms that make us abandon the computer to wish them well on their special day?

For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… 5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle… When you think about autonomous vehicles, a modified Prius or Smart Car might come to mind. Perhaps a Tesla Model 3 or even a fancy Rolls-Royce that costs more than most people spend on their house. Autonomous vehicles come across as safe, easy-going, and nothing to be intimidated by.Well, Ukraine’s KrAZ Spartan will change that perception – real quick.This giant armored vehicle is anything but soft and pleasant. It’s an intimidating presence both on the road and in the battlefield. No human drivers required.The KrAZ Spartan, which is based off a heavily-modified truck with massive amounts of armor, is capable of moving troops and supplies without any human assistance. Two of these vehicles, nicknamed “Fiona” and “Shrek” are already tearing up the obstacle course in a recent demonstration.We don’t have all of the details about this vehicle, and most of the press around it has thus far been written in Ukrainian. We do know that this is just one of many autonomous vehicle projects being run by military organizations around the world.Autonomous vehicles save lives in the fieldWhy would there be a need for such a thing? Isn’t autonomous vehicle technologies made for convenience and safety rather than combat situations?The answer to this is quite simple.A fully self-driving vehicle like this can also transport supplies between units without putting lives at risk. No one would need to be on board at all.We live in a world with roadside bombs and smart missiles that target humvees and other military vehicles. Despite their armored exterior, they remain a prime target in battle. This makes having one that can drive itself especially useful for testing new roads ahead of the rest of the convoy.You may also find yourself in a situation where you are unable to operate a vehicle manually. Transporting wounded troops from the battlefield would be another great use for something like this if the situation calls for it.US DoD is testing its own self-driving supportThe United States has been testing autonomous military vehicles for some time. Robots and drones have been in the battlefield for years. For the most part, these devices are believed by many citizens without top secret clearance to be remote controlled rather than fully autonomous.Bomb squads, for example, have been utilizing robots to do things like search for and disable explosives for over a decade. These tools are actively saving American lives today.The idea of taking this autonomous vehicle technology which is finding its way into the consumer sector and applying it in military scenarios is just common sense.More recently the military has been looking into self-driving tanks and autonomous trucks. These vehicles, in addition to advances in the area of artificial intelligence, are creating a new generation of military force. One that doesn’t rely so heavily on troops deployed on the ground, but of intelligent machines.After all is said and done, at least the Terminators will have some great new modes of transportation to use once Skynet becomes self-aware.
