A peaceful community of yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris) should be grateful for its outcasts. When they notice a slinking coyote or circling hawk, loners are most likely to sound the alarm and alert the colony, according to a new study of marmot social networks. Each summer since 2002, researchers have tracked the alarm calls and social behavior of tagged marmots from six colonies near the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in Colorado. They jotted down each friendly encounter—nose rubs, cuddles, and playful tussles—to reconstruct the social network linking 142 of the cat-sized mountain squirrels. The researchers rated each marmot for qualities such as social influence and vulnerability based on the number and strength of its relationships. They suspected that the most socially adept animals would be first to alert their cliques to danger, but in fact, unpopular marmots whistled alarm calls most frequently, the team reports online this month in Behavioral Ecology. Socially vulnerable marmots may call out predators because they can’t rely on strong social networks for protection, the researchers speculate. But standing guard could also be a way to gain access to the in crowd.
Manchester City ended their Champions League group campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Celtic on Tuesday, having recovered from an early blow inflicted by one of their own on-loan players. (Arsenal crush Basel | Barcelona hammer Gladbach)Patrick Roberts, signed by City last year, gave Celtic a fourth-minute lead, but his excellent individual effort was swiftly cancelled out by Kelechi Iheanacho with the remainder of the encounter struggling to live up to its explosive start.With City already confirmed in second place in Group C and safely into the knockout stages, the match was an opportunity for manager Pep Guardiola to ring the changes from the side that lost 3-1 at home to Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday.There was equally nothing riding on the outcome at the Etihad Stadium for bottom side Celtic, who produced a spirited display and were the better team for most of the first half.Celtic took full advantage of a chaotic start by the home side when Roberts cut into the area from the right, skipped past two tackles and fired powerfully into the net.Iheanacho, out to impress with Sergio Aguero about to start a four-game domestic ban, ensured it was a short-lived lead, though, with the Nigeria striker running onto Nolito’s through ball and lashing it high into the net after eight minutes.Both sides wasted further first-half chances, while the nearest either came to stealing a winner after the break was when Nolito’s effort was ruled out for offside.advertisement
London, Jul 1 (PTI) Find exercise too tiresome? It may all be in your head, say scientists who found that our expectations have a major influence on how strenuous we perceive sports to be.Researchers from University of Freiburg in Germany found that how a person doing the sport feels about himself or herself played a big role in feeling strained.Moreover, it can sometimes be smart to enlist help from supposedly useful sports products – if you believe in them, researchers said.The team invited 78 people, including men and women between the ages 18 and 32. The participants were made to ride a stationary bicycle-ergometre for 30 minutes.They were asked beforehand to say how athletic they thought they were. They were also asked to put on a compression shirt produced by a well-known sporting goods manufacturer.During their exercise, researchers asked the participants every five minutes what level of strenuousness they were experiencing.Right before the exercise, the participants were assigned to different groups and shown one of several short films that either stressed the positive health effects of the coming cycling activity, or dampened the expectations.In some of the films, the compression shirts were praised as an additional help in cycling, while other films indicated that they would make the test persons sweating comparable.”What the participants did not know was that we used these film clips with the aim of influencing their expectations of the coming cycling session,” said Hendrik Mothes, psychologist at University of Freiburg .Researchers found that the training unit was less strenuous for the test persons when they started out with a positive attitude.advertisementThe more athletic the participants perceived themselves to be, the stronger this effect was, researchers said. They also found that believing in the compression shirt helped. To the subjects who considered themselves athletic, it made no difference, however, for those who said they werent much good at sports, there was quite an effect.”Merely the belief that the shirt would help, did help the unsporty subjects to have a lower perception of strenuousness during the exercise,” Mothes said.The study was published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Theresa May’s Brexit “war cabinet” will meet again on Thursday against a backdrop of official forecasts showing the regions and sectors of the economy which face being hardest-hit by withdrawing from the European Union.Impact studies released to MPs by the Government reveal the North East of England and West Midlands will sustain the biggest hit to economic growth from Brexit.London will take the least damage, according to the controversial forecasts which ministers were forced to release after they were leaked to the media and amid pressure from Labour and pro-EU Tories.MPs have been reading the documents, which were prepared by the Department for Exiting the EU, under controlled conditions, but the figures have been leaked.Meanwhile, Sky News also obtained official estimates of the potential impact of non-tariff barriers – such as extra red tape, customs checks and rules of origin regulations – on various economic sectors.The motor industry faces cost increases of between 5% and 13%, while the retail and wholesale industry could see costs rise by between 7% and 20%. By comparison, London would sustain just a 2% hit to growth if the UK gets a free trade deal, 3.5% in a no deal scenario, and just 1% if the country stays in the single market.Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Tom Brake said: “This is a damning outlook for Britain. The Tories are putting everything on the line because they do not care about the lives and livelihoods of the people of the UK. But the Prime Minister insisted she would be “robust” in Brexit talks and dismissed “noises off” from the EU.She told MPs: “As I have said right from the very beginning we will hear noises off, we will hear all sorts of things being said about positions that are being taken.”What matters is the positions we take in the negotiations as we sit down and negotiate the best deal. We’ve shown we can do that. We did it in December and we are going to do it again.” “The Government need to start being clear what they are fighting for. They are still keeping no deal on the table despite how crippling it would be to the regional economy.”People did not vote to make themselves poorer. They should be allowed a vote on the final deal and a chance to exit from Brexit.”Labour MP Stephen Doughty, a leading supporter of the pro-EU Open Britain campaign, said: “People in every corner of the United Kingdom will be shocked to see the Government’s own assessment of the damage Brexit will do to their communities.”Earlier, Brussels released papers showing it wants to put in place a method to rapidly curtail the UK’s single market benefits if it breaches agreements on a transition deal. The economically important financial services sector stands to suffer a 5% to 10% cost increase, but construction faces no extra costs.The potential impact on automotive manufacturers could cause concerns as Mrs May prepares to host a meeting with Japanese business leaders on Thursday – including representatives from the country’s motor industry. The leaked figures have been seized upon by backers of a “soft” Brexit to protect the economy.But officials said they did not show the impact of the Government’s preferred post-Brexit option of an “unprecedented” economic partnership with the EU.Mrs May chaired the Brexit sub-committee on Wednesday and do so again on Thursday to thrash out what kind of trade relationship the UK will seek in negotiations.Figures showed the North East would take an 11% hit to economic growth under a free trade deal with the EU, while leaving with no deal will result in a 16% dip, and staying in the single market amounts to a 3% decline.In the West Midlands, a free trade deal would result in an 8% hit to growth, compared with 13% under “no deal”, and 2.5% if the UK stays in the single market. Responding to the leaks, a Government spokesman said: “This document does not represent Government policy and does not consider the outcome we are seeking in the negotiations.”As ministers clearly set out in the House, this is provisional internal analysis, part of a broad ongoing programme of analysis, and further work is in progress.”We are seeking an unprecedented, comprehensive and ambitious economic partnership – one that works for all parts of the UK. We are not expecting a no deal scenario.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A gathering that the ultra-right Golden Dawn party had planned to take place in the main square of the western port of Patra was banned at the last minute by local police due to fears of clashes between ultra-rightists and members of leftist and anti-establishment groups.As the city’s central Ethniki Antistasi Square is often used for protests by leftists and self-styled anarchists, the police reportedly believed that the planned demonstration would escalate into violence.Golden Dawn decried the ban as a joint initiative by “anarchists and the state against nationalists” and said it would hold its “political gathering” at 8.30 p.m. Tuesday at Olga Square, a less central Patra landmark.Source: Kathimerini
Stay on target Razer is one of our favorite #brands when it comes to wide assortments of powerful and useful gaming computers and peripherals.

Dear ComradeTwitterVijay Devarakonda’s Dear Comrade has hit the rock bottom at the box office in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (AP/TS) on Tuesday and collected lesser amount than last week’s release iSmart Shankar.Dear Comrade opened to a big response in the Telugu states on July 26 and word of mouth helped it remain strong on the following days. Having made a good collection, the movie recovered around 60 per cent of the distributors’ investment in its opening weekend. But considering its hype and promotion, its business was not up to the mark. The distributors hoped that it will earn well on weekdays.But to their shock, Dear Comrade witnessed a steep decline in its collection at the AP/TS box office on Monday and its business hit the rock bottom on Tuesday. Andhra Box Office tweeted, “#DearComrade : Huge Drop on 1st Monday. Not Looking Good!.” Today it added, “#DearComrade Crashes on weekdays with some areas reporting Nett Figures lesser than Rentals.”Dear Comrade has failed to collect even Rs 50 lakh gross at the AP/TS box office on Tuesday. According to buzz on social media, it has just added Rs 25 lakhs to the total distributor share of Rs 13.85 crore in the Telugu States. Telugu 360_BO tweeted, “#DearComrade went down further on Tuesday with a distributor share of 25 lakhs in the Telugu States. 5 days AP/TS Share : 13.85 Cr Breakeven : 22.60 Cr.” iSmart ShankarTwitterAnother buzz on social media is that Ram Pothineni’s iSmart Shankar has collected more money than Dear Comrade in the Telugu state on its 13th days. Sai (@saipspk1638) tweeted, “#iSmartShankar Day 13>#DearComrade Day 4 in APTG Shocking collapse by #DearComrade.”The distributors have spent Rs 22.60 crore on its theatrical rights for the Telugu states. Dear Comrade has recovered 61.28 per cent of their investment. What is shocking about its collection is that the movie has just returned 1 per cent of their investment on Monday and Tuesday together. Considering its present trends, the film is heading to be a disaster and likely to incur huge losses to its distributors.

However, the technologies for these are not yet matured and over time, the mm-wave band could be exploited to give bandwidths in excess of 10 Gb/s over short-range wireless.“Due to the short transmission distances associated with mm-wave frequencies, applications in personal area networking would be the most appropriate,” she said. “Providing fast wireless connectivity between your hi-def display screens and video content on a storage device, for example, or connecting a range of devices such as laptops, media storage and displays for entertainment and business interactivity applications, to name a few, will soon require bandwidths in excess of 100 Mb/s connectivity.”Transportation and integration optionsRegarding the basic architecture of a Fi-Wi system, the researchers looked at three possible approaches for transporting mm-wave wireless signals over optical fibers. The simplest scheme, called RF-over-fiber, involves directly transporting the wireless signals, so that no frequency translation is required at the base stations. The second method involves downconverting the mm-wave wireless signals to a lower intermediate frequency (IF) at the central office before optically transmitting the signals to the base station where they are upconverted, which is called IF-over-fiber. The third method, called baseband-over-fiber, involves transporting the wireless signals as very low-frequency baseband signals over optical fibers from the central office to the base station, and then upconverting the information to the mm-wave frequency at the base station. Ultimately, there is a tradeoff between simplicity and robustness in the three methods: while the RF-over-fiber method is the simplest, the signals are more susceptible to various impairments as they propagate along the optical fiber. Many research teams have been working on a number of strategies to overcome these impairments. The authors of the current study emphasize that these improvements are necessary for achieving good signal quality and overall system performance. Another requirement is for fiber-wireless systems to be integrated with the existing optical infrastructure. The engineers explain that the rising level of optical fiber infrastructure deployment close to residential premises provides an ideal opportunity to interconnect the wireless with fixed wired networks. This integration would enable fiber-wireless systems to take advantage of current technologies such as wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM), which combines multiple signals on a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths. Previous research has demonstrated that WDM can significantly increase the capacity and success rates of fiber-wireless systems. In addition, research has shown that there are a range of technology options that support such integration cost-effectively without compromising the performance required of these very high-speed networks.Overall, mm-wave fiber-wireless technology has the potential to open up the wireless spectrum as the use of small, portable communication devices continues to grow. Serving as a short-distance technology, the wireless portion can cover the “last mile” of data transmission to customers, as well as in-building networking, with the potential for faster speeds and lower costs. For these reasons, fiber-wireless systems would make the most sense in densely populated areas, and also for disaster recovery environments where wired communication lines are unavailable. As Lim explained, fiber-wireless could be deployed in the near future.“We feel that fiber-wireless could be commercially ready in 3-5 years with immediate applications to new base station installations,” she said. “The adoption of Fi-Wi technologies to 3G and 4G wireless will be the most likely market in the immediate term. As the fiber deployment extends to buildings and premises, mm-wave Fi-Wi will take off.” This congestion problem was not unanticipated by electrical engineers, who, for the past two decades, have been developing new wireless technologies that use different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Specifically, these wireless technologies are exploiting the large, unused bandwidths of extremely high frequency (EHF) microwaves in the millimeter-wave (mm-wave) frequency region. One particular area of interest is the unlicensed 60 GHz frequency band, which has 5-mm wavelengths. (In contrast, the heavily burdened lower microwave regions have frequencies of 2-4 GHz, corresponding to wavelengths of 7.5-15 cm.) However, the 60 GHz frequency band is not without challenges, either. Since wireless signals at 60 GHz frequencies have inherently high propagation losses, they are targeted toward short-range, in-building, high-speed applications. To maintain strong incoming wireless signals for buildings, many antenna base stations must be built near customers. These base stations, in turn, would receive broadband signals from a smaller number of distant central offices. The signals between central offices and base stations would be transmitted through long-range optical fibers. Since such a system uses both optical fibers and mm-wave wireless transmission, the technology is called “fiber-wireless” (Fi-Wi). The advantage of bimodal Fi-Wi systems is that they can enjoy the strengths of both optical and wireless technologies – specifically, the inherently large bandwidth of optical fiber and the large, unused bandwidth in the mm-wave wireless spectrum. For this reason, a hybrid system has the potential to provide very high data transmission rates with minimal time delay.Recently, a team of electrical engineers working on fiber-wireless technologies has analyzed the progress made in this field over the past two decades. In a paper published in the Journal of Lightwave Technology, Christina Lim, from the University of Melbourne, and her coauthors have presented an overview of the many different techniques proposed to optically transport mm-wave wireless signals and overcome some of the challenges involved. (PhysOrg.com) — By looking at the latest electronic communication devices that have emerged over the past few years, it’s clear that the trend of smaller, portable devices is strong and expected to continue. Yet while all these notebooks, netbooks, and tablet PCs are becoming more and more popular, their explosive growth also poses a problem: these wireless devices are hogging the already congested lower microwave frequency region of the wireless spectrum.

Too much or too little sleep can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and early death, according to a study of over 116,000 people from across the world published recently. The researchers found that people who slept for longer than the recommended duration of six to eight hours a day had an increased risk of early death or developing diseases of the heart or blood vessels in the brain. Compared to people who slept for the recommended time, those who slept a total of eight to nine hours a day had a five Also Read – Add new books to your shelf per cent increased risk; people sleeping between nine and ten hours a day had an increased risk of 17 per cent and those sleeping more than ten hours a day had a 41 per cent increased risk. They also found a nine per cent increased risk for people who slept a total of six or fewer hours, but this finding was not statistically significant. Before adjusting for factors that might affect the results, the researchers found that for every 1,000 people sleeping six or fewer hours a night, 9.4 developed cardiovascular disease (CVD) or died per year. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThis occurred in 7.8 of those sleeping six to eight hours, 8.4 of those sleeping eight to nine hours, 10.4 of those sleeping nine to ten hours and 14.8 of those sleeping more than ten hours. “Our study shows that the optimal duration of estimated sleep is six to eight hours per day for adults,” said Chuangshi Wang, a PhD student at McMaster University in Canada. “Given that this is an observational study that can only show an association rather than proving a causal relationship, we cannot say that too much sleep per se causes cardiovascular diseases,” Wang said, lead author of the study published in the European Heart Journal. “However, too little sleep could be an underlying contributor to death and cases of cardiovascular disease, and too much sleep may indicate underlying conditions that increase risk,” she said. Associations between sleep and death or cardiovascular and other diseases have been suggested by other studies, but results have been contradictory. In addition, they tended to look at particular populations and did not necessarily take account of the fact that in some countries daytime napping can be common and considered healthy. The study looked at a total of 116,632 adults aged between 35 and 70 years in 21 countries with different income levels in seven geographic regions (North America and Europe, South America, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, China and Africa). During an average (median) follow-up time of nearly eight years, 4,381 people died and 4,365 suffered a major cardiovascular problem such as a heart attack or stroke. Researchers found that regular daytime naps were more common in the Middle East, China, Southeast Asia and South America. The duration of daytime naps varied mainly from 30 to 60 minutes. People who slept six or fewer hours at night, but took a daytime nap, and so slept an average of 6.4 hours a day in total, had a slightly increased risk compared to those who slept between six and eight hours at night without a daytime nap, but this finding was not statistically significant. “Although daytime napping was associated with higher risks of death or cardiovascular problems in those with sufficient or longer sleep at night, this was not the case in people who slept under six hours at night,” Wang said. “In these individuals, a daytime nap seemed to compensate for the lack of sleep at night and to mitigate the risks,” she further added.

The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Six weeks into the 2012 NFL season, it appeared the Arizona Cardinals may have found their franchise quarterback in Kevin Kolb. In March of 2013, the search for that franchise signal caller continues.The Cardinals announced Friday they have cut the quarterback, whose time in the Valley ends after a disappointing two seasons.Reports circulated Friday that Kolb had rejected the Cardinals’ contract restructuring. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 0 Comments Share Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling By releasing Kolb, the Cardinals will save $7.5 million against the 2013 salary cap, which is set at $123 million.Acquired by the team from Philadelphia for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second round pick in August 2011, Kolb was expected to become the team’s solution at quarterback.Since entering Week 1 in relief of an injured John Skelton, Kolb had completed 59.6 percent of his passes and thrown for 1,169 yards.
