JOCKEY QUOTES MIKE SMITH, EFFINEX, THIRD: “He ran great. That was his first race in just over three months . . . going a mile and a quarter. I mean, that was impressive. You can’t ask for much better. That’s all it was and that’s what it felt like. He got to them and I thought we had them, but by the three-eighths pole I felt him take a big breath and once he got his air he didn’t put his head back down and take off again!“I went, ‘Oh no, he’s tired!’ But then I thought that sprinter will stop but that son of a . . . didn’t stop. I needed Effinex to stop and take a break and then fight on but then when Melatonin took off I knew we’d have to get him next time.” JOE TALAMO, MELATONIN, WINER: “What a tremendous effort. I think I need some Melatonin right now to calm down from it. Dave and everyone involved are so high on this horse and his confidence coming out of that last race has really only gotten better, working-wise. We had a great trip, he broke real sharp and I just put him up there and fortunately he was going so easily. When I got to the first turn, they backed off him a bit so I was able to give him a breather and he opened up turning for home. I was pretty excited.“You don’t really know until you try the distance and I didn’t think it was going to be a problem. Last time he made the lead pretty early and he kind of started to wait on horses and that’s when I knew I still had horse left. He’s a fun horse to ride, I’m just so grateful for the opportunity.“His race last time was just so impressive to me. He was sprinting, he was running on turf but he just impressed me the way he did it. He won by over three and it was even easier than it looked so we’d thought we’d take a shot today.“It means so much to win this race. I told Elizabeth when I left for the track today that I thought we had a big chance. I didn’t think we’d win like that but it was pretty exciting.“This is huge. I had goose bumps when I crossed the wire. Ever since coming to California, aside from winning the Santa Anita Derby, this was a huge, huge goal of mine. This is one of the biggest races in California and to do it at Santa Anita in front of a crowd like this, is just icing on the cake.“I felt Mario clip heels with me but I was more surprised, there wasn’t much room in there. I wasn’t aware that he was having any trouble with his horse, I was more concerned about Rafael (Bejarano, aboard General a Rod). It wasn’t a hard hit. It’s not like it stopped Melatonin’s stride or anything. I felt a little something though.” NOTES: The winning owner is Susan Osborne of Glendale, CA, who races as Tarabilla Farms, Inc. ABEL LEZCANO, HARD ACES, SECOND: “I thought we were taking that last turn really well, up towards the front we were really slowing down which didn’t make me too happy. Coming out I provoked him a bit, got him going and was able to maintain good speed but in the end it wasn’t enough.“I am very happy to have gotten to race this horse and especially thankful to John Sadler who allowed me to ride his horse. This is a great team and I am thankful for everyone’s hard work.” TRAINER QUOTES DAVID HOFMANS, MELATONIN, WINNER: “Joe (Talamo) was instrumental in running in this race. Joe and his agent, Scotty (McClellan) were insistent that we go. After his last race he said we have to run here. Joe was convinced after his last race. He said he loves this race track, he’s so strong and he had so much horse left, I think he wants to run even farther, and I was convinced he was a miler.“I breezed him seven-eighths the other day with Joe and was convinced to go here. Without California Chrome, it opened it up. We expected to be on the lead.“We’re going to San Manuel (Indian Bingo & Casino to celebrate). The hell with Disneyland.“As for the horse, we’ll see how he comes out it and what shakes and go from there.”Asked if this win was bigger than Alphabet Soup winning the 1996 Breeders’ Cup Classic: “I don’t know; right there, right there.” MARIO GUTIERREZ, DONWORTH: “It was a rough trip. It was just a tough trip, that’s all.” DOUG O’NEILL, DONWORTH, SEVENTH: “Bad training. He was rank. You just have to blame me on that one. Mario did a great job. They were flying and he was trying to get him to settle.” -30-
A helicopter crewman helped deliver a baby inside the hallway of Letterkenny General Hospital.The crew of the Irish Coastguard 118 helicopter responded to the call of a woman in labour on Arranmore Island last night.But the woman’s baby wasn’t waiting around! The helicopter landed at the hospital and two paramedics started to wheel the women to the delivery suite.However she didn’t make it that far and began to give birth in the hospital corridor.The paramedics left to get the midwife but the coast guard said today that “the baby had other plans”.Crewman Gary Robertson had helped deliver the baby in the corridor by the time the midwifery team had arrived. The healthy baby boy and mother are both said to be doing fine.

People are being urged to know the symptoms of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) ahead of World COPD Day on Wednesday November 20th.Figures show that 2,013 people from Donegal were hospitalised due to COPD between 2016 and 2018.COPD Support Ireland is working to raise more awareness of the condition. COPD incorporates two well-known conditions – emphysema and chronic bronchitis. It is a lung condition that makes it hard for people to breathe due to obstruction of the airways. Key symptoms are a persistent cough with phlegm, shortness of breath, and recurrent chest infections.Smoking is the most common cause of COPD but prolonged exposure to environmental toxins, fumes and dust, is also a risk factor. COPD Support Ireland states that COPD is the most common disease-specific cause of emergency hospital admission among adults.Prof. JJ Gilmartin, Consultant Respiratory Physician and Chair of COPD Support Ireland, says that COPD can be managed and treated effectively, especially if caught early: “My advice to anyone who has a persistent cough with phlegm, shortness of breath, and recurrent chest infections, is to visit their GP. I would also encourage people who are over 35 years, who are current or former smokers, or who have a family history of lung conditions to talk their doctor too. If appropriate, your GP can organise a spirometry test. This is a very simple procedure where the patient simply blows into a device to determine if they have COPD.“The key thing to remember with COPD is that the earlier it is caught, the better. It means that we can make sure that a person receives the appropriate treatment and care, and have a much better outcome. Put simply, you will be able to live your life better, for longer.”People who have questions about how best to manage COPD, and who wish to speak to a specialist respiratory nurse for information and advice, can telephone the national COPD Advice Line on Freefone 1800 83 21 46. This is a call-back service and an appointment will be made for a nurse to return the call at a convenient time. The line is open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm.For more information on COPD and COPD Support Ireland, visit www.copd.ie2,013 Donegal people hospitalised due to COPD over two years was last modified: November 14th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:copd

What kid hasn’t played with maple seeds to watch them spin in the air like helicopters? Scientists watch them, too. A team from the Netherlands and California found out how they stay in the air for so long without engines to drive them. One would think in an era of advanced aeronautical engineering the physics would all be worked out, but the abstract explains that the seeds know more than the engineers do:As they descend, the autorotating seeds of maples and some other trees generate unexpectedly high lift, but how they attain this elevated performance is unknown. To elucidate the mechanisms responsible, we measured the three-dimensional flow around dynamically scaled models of maple and hornbeam seeds. Our results indicate that these seeds attain high lift by generating a stable leading-edge vortex (LEV) as they descend. The compact LEV, which we verified on real specimens, allows maple seeds to remain in the air more effectively than do a variety of nonautorotating seeds. The trees involved often grow in nutrient-poor environments, so their seeds rely on wind, updrafts and turbulent gusts to spread out. They can sometimes fly several kilometers away from the parent tree. The team studied three species of maple and one species of hornbeam, because “The seeds from all four of these species are known to generate high lift.” The seeds start rotating within a meter of detachment. “They autorotate because the heavy nut, and hence the center of gravity, is located at the base of the wing-shaped seed, they said, emphasizing again how this is partly mysterious: “The stable autorotation of maple and other rotary seeds depends on an interplay between their three-dimensional (3D) inertial and aerodynamic properties, which is not fully understood.” Measurements of the seeds in wind tunnels showed that the leading-edge vortex (LEV) is attached at the 25% span location where the sectional lift coefficient is the greatest. “The stable attachment of the LEV is noteworthy, given that the local angles of attack are well beyond the stall point for conventional aircraft wings and helicopter blades.” They explain how the stalling that endangers pilots is overcome by the seeds:Like autorotating seeds, insect wings generate very high lift despite operating at angles of attack well above those that will stall conventional aircraft wings and helicopter blades (11) (Fig. 1D). Instead of stalling, insect wings generate a prominent leading-edge vortex (LEV), which is known to be responsible for elevating both lift and drag. Building upon these observations, we hypothesized that autorotating seeds create a LEV that enables them to generate high lift at high angles of attack during their descent.The authors believe aircraft engineers should go back to the drawing board. “The enhanced aerodynamic performance of autorotating seeds could inspire the design of more effective autorotating vehicles.” As to how this phenomenon arose, the scientists noted that a similar LEV lift-generating principle is employed in the wings of bats, birds, insects and seeds. To them, this suggested “that the use of LEVs represents a convergent aerodynamic solution in the evolution of flight performance in both animals and plants.” For more on Dickinson’s fascinating research on biological flight design, see the 11/20/2006 entry, and especially the 12/08/2003 entry.1. Lentink, Dickson, Leeuwen, and Dickinson, “Leading-Edge Vortices Elevate Lift of Autorotating Plant Seeds,” Science, 12 June 2009: Vol. 324. no. 5933, pp. 1438-1440, DOI: 10.1126/science.1174196.Everything about this article was wonderful except the evolutionary storytelling, which incited wonder of a different kind (see Brett Miller’s treatment of the Convergence Concoction). Convergence is not an answer; it’s a sidestep. What should have falsified evolution is turned into a support for it by the hocus-pocus of employing a miracle word. Aircraft engineers don’t need miracles, they need real-world physics, inspired by nature’s designs. Keep the materialistic metaphysics out of it. A great film on seed dispersal, including stunning images of autorotating seeds, is the Moody Science production Journey of Life. Take your kids on a walk in the woods where maples grow and play with the seeds. Make it a teachable moment. Older kids might want to do a school science project on autorotating seeds.(Visited 31 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ “Even if he was in foul trouble, he had the patience to take the shot,” said coach Pablo Lucas of Ambulodto, who finished with four points and five rebounds.Robbie Herndon captained the Couriers with 27 markers on a 3-of-5 shooting from threes, to go with five boards and two assists, while Michael Juico added 22 points, four dimes, and three rebounds.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutWangs squandered a nine-point lead, 70-61, early in the fourth quarter and stumbled to a 79-76 deficit thanks to a Leo Avenido-led 12-1 run for the Coffee Lovers.But the Couriers regained their footing late, with Herndon drilling a huge three from the top of the arc with 1:08 to play while capitalizing on Gamboa’s four straight misses from the charity stripe to survive the thrilling affair. “Breaks of the game,” said Lucas. “Good thing that our players did not give up and showed their never say die attitude.
