first_imgIt could not have been much fun for the 49ers Sunday, all the coaches and players standing on the sideline in a total downpour.Very little went according to plan for either offense, creating some ugly football in incredibly sloppy conditions. But after about three hours, the Niners came out with a 9-0 win.To celebrate, the heroes of the game — the 49ers defense — took advantage of the rain-drenched turf of FedEx field, throwing it back to with a middle school-style slip-and-slide.Nick Bosa …last_img read more

Animals Become Tame with Minor Genetic Changes

first_img“In what could be a breakthrough in animal breeding, a team of scientists from Germany, Russia and Sweden have discovered a set of genetic regions responsible for animal tameness,” began a report in Science Daily.  Groups of tame rats and aggressive rats were bred separately, then mated.  Scientists identified genetic regions responsible for the different behaviors.    The editor of the journal Genetics in which the results were published (June issue) remarked how humans have tamed some animals for thousands of years but have had difficulty with others.  He said it’s not folklore and mythology; “genetics plays a large role in the process, and this research provides a solid scientific explanation of this phenomenon, and offers clues about how genomes can be manipulated to breed tame animals of species once believed to be untamable.”How difficult would it be for the Creator to alter the behavior of animals toward humans?  The Bible says God put the fear of man into animals after the Flood (Genesis 9:2) and that in the Millennium wild animals will become tame again (Isaiah 11, 65).  Is that just folklore or mythology?  Modern genetics shows there’s a “solid scientific explanation for this phenomenon.”  Compared to inventing an animal in the first place, taming wild animals would be a minor tweak for the Master of Genetics.  This is certainly more plausible than thinking lions and horses are the products of slime and chance.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Loftus-Cheek aiming to emulate Ballack

first_imgChelsea The next Ballack? Loftus-Cheek aiming to become Chelsea’s next midfield dynamo Chris Burton Last updated 2 years ago 19:21 11/9/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Ruben Loftus-Cheek Getty Chelsea Premier League The highly rated midfielder has been included in the senior England squad for the first time and is eager to follow in the footsteps of a legend Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits to having modelled his game on Michael Ballack as he seeks to enjoy similar success with Chelsea.The 21-year-old midfielder is currently taking in a season-long loan with Crystal Palace, with Antonio Conte unable to offer him the regular minutes he needs at this stage of his career.Palace 4/6 to be relegated Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Loftus-Cheek has impressed with the Eagles, earning a first call-up to the senior England squad for friendly dates with Germany and Brazil.The youngster is eager to ensure that his career remains on an upward curve, with inspiration having been taken from an iconic figure of the modern era.Loftus-Cheek told Standard Sport: “Ballack is a player that inspired me when I was growing up at Chelsea.”I used to watch him playing with the likes of [Frank] Lampard and [Michael] Essien in midfield. I was coming through the Academy and my coaches always used to say to me: ‘Watch the games, watch Ballack.’ Ruben Loftus-Cheek Michael Ballack Chelsea“At the time they brought in a type of analysis which was quite new. It tracked players individually. “You could go on a laptop, click on a name and watch all their plays from the game. I used to click on Ballack’s name a lot.”He was a guy that would boss the midfield. It is what my dad used to say to me as well, that I need to boss the midfield too. Ballack was a player that ran the game, while Lampard kind of worked off him. “I took his style into the way I play, especially when I played as a No.8 all the way through the academy and sometimes play now.”Ballack, who won 98 caps for Germany, spent four years with Chelsea between 2006 and 2010.He won the Premier League title, three FA Cups, the League Cup and the Community Shield during his time at Stamford Bridge, while also gracing the 2008 Champions League final.It is a big ask for Loftus-Cheek to reach that level, but the youngster is showing signs of promise and already boasts the physical attributes to put him in the Ballack mould.He added: “I have always been quite tall since the age of 13-14, but I wasn’t powerful with big muscles.”I have had to develop that Ballack frame and power over a period of time. My physicality is a big part of my game. It was a strength that he used and it is something you can compare us with.”Loftus-Cheek has made eight appearances for Palace this season, having previously been restricted to just 32 outings for Chelsea after making his senior debut in December 2014.last_img read more
