Kylian MbappeMonaco, Principality of Monaco | AFP | Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim has claimed that star striker Kylian Mbappe was left on the bench last weekend “to protect him” rather than as a punishment.The 18-year-old sensation reportedly wants away from the French champions, with Paris Saint-Germain his favoured destination but Real Madrid also reportedly ready to pay 180 million euros ($211 million) for his services.Mbappe started Monaco’s first two competitive matches of the season but sat on the bench for the duration of the principality club’s 4-1 Ligue 1 victory at Dijon on Sunday.Jardim said after that match that dropping Mbappe was a “decision by the club” but the Portuguese coach told media on Wednesday that it was not taken to punish the French international.“We never punish our players. That is not the right word. ‘Protected’ is a better word. When so many things are happening around an 18-year-old kid, it is our responsibility to protect him,” said Jardim.“That means me, Vadim (Vasilyev, the vice-president) and the sporting director (Antonio Cordon). It is always to protect the squad, the player and the club.“Kylian is not at 100 percent. He is not in great form. But that is to be expected of a kid who is just 18… Even you (journalists), if tomorrow another newspaper offers you a contract where you will earn 15 times more, you won’t be so good when it comes to tapping the keys on your computer keyboard,” he added with a smile.Mbappe, whose Monaco contract runs until June 2019, could again be left out when his side travel to Metz on league duty on Friday evening.“The philosophy at AS Monaco is to play those who are at 100 percent and totally available to the squad,” said the coach, whose side have won their opening two Ligue 1 matches. If he does not play, either Guido Carrillo or Adama Diakhaby will partner Radamel Falcao — scorer of a hat-trick in Dijon — against Metz.Mbappe won his first four caps for France at the tail end of last season but Jardim accepted that the current situation puts at risk his chances of being called up for his country’s World Cup qualifier against the Netherlands at the end of the month.But the former Sporting Lisbon boss is more concerned with what losing Mbappe might mean for his squad after seeing Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Valere Germain leave, amongst others, since winning the title.“I always say we have to adapt. Those who stay are always the most important. The objective is to be able to play well with those who remain. That is the mentality. I never cry about those who leave.“I know the transfer market. Twenty percent of it is about buying players to strengthen the team and the other 80 percent is about weakening the opposition and messing things up for everyone else.“It is a strategy. There are only two weeks left. After that it’s finished.” Share on: WhatsApp
19 Jun 2017 World rankings boost for Martha England teenager Martha Lewis has given her world ranking a boost with an overall win in the combined Critchley and Astor Salvers. The Surrey 17-year-old had a six-under par total for the two events and beat Hampshire’s Kerry Smith by two shots. This is the first time the prestigious scratch events have been paired, creating a 72-hole tournament which attracts world ranking points. The result has helped Lewis improve her ranking by almost 200 points. In the Critchley Salver at Sunningdale, Lewis (St George’s Hill) was in a three-way tie on six under-par with Durham’s Jessica Hall (Bishop Auckland) and Yorkshire’s Rochelle Morris (Woodsome Hall). Hall won the salver by virtue of her second round of five-under par 69 on the Old Course. In the Astor Salver at The Berkshire, the trophy was won by girl international Lily May Humphreys (Stoke by Nayland) on six-under par. Lewis, a fellow member of the England Golf girls’ squad, was level par for the two rounds and placed fourth. Kerry Smith (Waterlooville) was fourth in the Critchley Salver on five-under and tied fifth in the Astor Salver on one-over. Lewis’s success continues her good form of 2017, having been fourth in the Scottish U18 girls’ championship and runner-up in the Doral Publix tournament in Florida. She has previously represented England at U16 level. Five tournaments, each attracting world ranking points, have been created by combining existing 36-hole scratch events. The timings and dates of the existing 36-hole events do not change, but a leaderboard shows overall results for the paired tournaments. The other four events are: Comboy Leveret, won by Lily May Humphreys, combined the Comboy Scratch at Delamere Forest, Cheshire and The Leveret at Formby Ladies’, Lancashire.

0 Sci-Tech Post a comment Enlarge ImageThe location of the blue pigment in the medieval woman’s mouth helped the researchers identify how she likely used it. Christina Warinner Flecks of blue pigment found in the teeth of a woman who lived up to a thousand years ago present a surprising picture of her life as a medieval nun in Europe. The woman likely painted richly illuminated religious texts used by members of religious institutions and nobles, according to researchers who examined her dental remains. The discovery challenges the hypothesis that it was only male monks who produced such ornately decorated manuscripts. “The early use of this pigment by a religious woman challenges widespread assumptions about … the gendered production of illuminated texts,” reads a new study on the find in the journal Science Advances.Enlarge ImageA magnified view of the tiny lapis lazuli particles embedded within a woman’s medieval dental calculus. Christina Warinner As part of research looking at health in the Middle Ages, researchers led by the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and UK’s University of York examined dental calculus (essentially plaque that hardens over a lifetime) in remains found at a small women’s monastery in central Germany. Located in the municipality of Dalheim, the monastery is believed to have housed approximately 14 religious women from the time it was founded until fire destroyed it. The teeth of one woman who died between the age of 45 and 60 stood out for the numerous blue bits embedded in their calculus. High-powered microscopes and several spectrographic instruments, which separate light by its wavelengths, revealed the pigment to be made from lapis lazuli stone. Enlarge ImageA page from an 11th-century French illuminated manuscript. Women’s work on such documents has been largely invisible. DeAgostini/Getty Images “It came as a complete surprise,” study co-author Anita Radini, an archaeologist with the UK’s University of York, said in a statement. “As the calculus dissolved, it released hundreds of tiny blue particles.” During the European Middle Ages, ultramarine blue pigment made from lapis lazuli ground into a powder was a rare commodity mined only in Afghanistan and restricted to use in luxury books of high value and importance. It often appeared alongside other expensive materials, like gold and silver, to add vivid color in artwork — to religious robes, for example. But how did the blue paint get into the woman’s teeth? The researchers looked at many scenarios, concluding by the placement of the pigment in her mouth that she was painting with it and licking the end of the paintbrush to keep the tool wet. As a sign of humility, many medieval scribes and painters didn’t sign their work before the 15th century, and that practice especially applied to women, the researchers point out in their paper. The poor visibility of women’s work in manuscript production has led many modern scholars to assume women played little role in it.”Here we have direct evidence of a woman, not just painting, but painting with a very rare and expensive pigment, and at a very out-of-the way place,” said Christina Warinner, a professor at the Max Planck Institute and senior author on the paper.”This woman’s story could have remained hidden forever without the use of these techniques. It makes me wonder how many other artists we might find in medieval cemeteries — if we only look.”Culture: Your hub for everything from film and television to music, comics, toys and sports.Taking It to Extremes: Mix insane situations with everyday tech and here’s what happens.

New problem discovered with 737 Max jet, IATA urges further pilot training With file from The Associated Press Tags: Boeing 737 MAX, Federal Aviation Administration, IATA Share MONTREAL — A new computer problem has been found in the troubled Boeing 737 Max that will further delay the plane’s return to flying after two deadly crashes, according to two people familiar with the matter.The latest flaw in the plane’s computer system was discovered by Federal Aviation Administration pilots who were testing an update to critical software in a flight simulator last week at a Boeing facility near Seattle, the people said.Boeing did not immediately respond to a request for comment.One of the people familiar with the discovery said it would add one to three months to the timetable for returning the Max to flight. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because the development has not been made public.In response, IATA, which represents hundreds of airlines, pushed again for additional training on the 737. After holding a meeting in Montreal between airlines and regulators, Alexandre de Juniac, head of IATA, said Thursday in a prepared statement that the aviation industry cannot operate effectively without co-ordination between aircraft operators and regulators.More news: Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaIf additional training is required, including the possible introduction of simulators for the Max, it could come at a tremendous cost to Boeing.Earlier this month Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, who landed a crippled airliner safely on the Hudson River in 2009, told the House aviation subcommittee that Max pilots should train for emergencies related to flight-control software in simulators – not just on computers, as Boeing proposes. Several others who testified also criticized Boeing’s pilot training for the aircraft, with some saying that Boeing’s zeal to minimize pilot-training costs for airlines buying the 737 Max jet contributed to design errors and inadequate training.Boeing Co.’s 737 Max fleet has been grounded worldwide after crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people.Shares of Boeing fell 2.6% before the market open.
