Talk about being thrown right into the fire.With UW junior goalie Brian Elliott injuring his left leg at practice Wednesday, freshman Shane Connelly — who has yet to see action in a regular season game — has quickly become the center of attention as the No. 1-ranked Badgers host No. 19 Denver this weekend.”This would be a first,” Connelly said after practice Thursday as he was surrounded by a group of reporters. “It’s something new. I’m pretty excited.”Elliott had been nothing short of spectacular between the pipes through UW’s first 22 contests, compiling an 18-2-2 record, a 1.40 goals against average and a .946 save percentage. He was the top goalie and arguably the best player in the country this season.Now he will be forced to view the next 3-4 weeks in street clothes.The only action outside of practice Connelly has seen since joining the Badgers’ squad at the beginning of this season came against the United States Under-18 team a month ago.The Cheltenham, Penn. native made 19 saves but gave up five goals as Wisconsin picked up a 6-5 come-from-behind victory.It was not quite the debut that Connelly had hoped for, but he said getting to see some action did help his progress.”I watched the tape, went back to work with [goalie coach Bill Howard] and just got in the flow a little more,” Connelly said. “I’ve watched a lot of gamedays, but now I’ve got one under my belt. More confidence is the biggest thing.”Included in the five goals allowed were a few that slipped through his legs, which undoubtedly he would love to have back.But that performance is in the rearview mirror at this point, and Connelly will be thrust into the limelight under the grandest of circumstances.Not only will he be making his official debut for the top-ranked team in the country looking to knock off the two-time defending national champion Pioneers, he will be doing so in front of a sold-out Kohl Center.”I never thought it would be my first WCHA game, but it’s arrived,” Connelly said. “I’m more excited than nervous.”Connelly has been preparing all year and each individual weekend just in case he would be needed.”Each weekend you kind of get your mindset just in case, get ready,” Connelly said.That “just-in-case” moment happened to come Wednesday.”This is obviously one of the biggest days of my life coming up … I’m just excited and ready to go,” Connelly said.”I think I’m ready.”Knocking off the PioneersThere is no doubt that both teams will have bulls-eyes on their backs at the Kohl Center this weekend.Denver will be trying to defend its national title while the now-battered Badgers trying to hold onto their No. 1 ranking and maintain their lead in the WCHA, and this is the only time they will see each other in the regular season.”What it adds up to is another great weekend,” Eaves said. “That becomes a natural motivator.”Denver struggled a bit last weekend, splitting with St. Cloud State, but remains tied for second in the WCHA with Minnesota, eight points behind Wisconsin.Even though they will be without Elliott, the Badgers are taking this series as if it were any other.”Nothing’s going to change this weekend,” senior assistant captain Tom Gilbert said. “We’re going to come out hard, score some goals and get four points this weekend.”In league games, Denver ranks fourth on offense with 3.31 goals per game and also has the third-best defense, allowing 2.62 goals per game.They have two of the top three scorers in the league in sophomore Paul Stastny and junior Matt Carle, but senior Gabe Gauthier may be the biggest threat.”Gauthier is their biggest talent,” senior captain Adam Burish said. “We’ve got to be real aware when he’s on the ice.”Between the pipes, the Pioneers have split time between the talented duo of sophomore Peter Mannino (2.35 GAA, .917 save percentage) and junior Glenn Fisher (2.77, .901).The Badgers will probably have to knock in a few extra goals — which wasn’t a problem when they scored 12 in two games at Colorado College last week — if they hope to be successful.UW, along with boasting the toughest defense in the league — they are allowing just 1.44 goals per game — can also now lay claim to the WCHA’s best offense, as the Badgers effort last weekend propelled them to 3.94 goals per league game.Of course, without Elliott, it’s a whole new ballgame.

OAKLAND — Houston is a problem the Athletics may not be capable of solving.The Astros got run-scoring singles from Michael Brantley and Yuli Gurriel against Lou Trivino in the top of the 12th inning Sunday to send the Athletics to their fifth straight defeat and sweep a three-game series before a crowd of 23,144 at the Coliseum.At 29-30, the Athletics are 10 1/2 games behind the two-time defending American League … Click here if you’re unable to view the photo gallery on your mobile device.
In a paper just published in Nature,1 scientists mapped the DNA of 270 people from four people groups: European, African, Chinese, and Japanese. The scientists were looking for sections of DNA that are either missing or duplicated. Many sections of our DNA appear over and over again. The number of extra copies varies between individuals and between people groups. The number of copies is called the Copy Number Variation (CNV). The major excitement in their study was the finding of a link between locations within chromosomes of DNA that are missing or duplicated and the locations on the chromosomes of many diseases. DNA code that scientists used to call useless junk, left over from the random process of evolution, are now turning out to contain mechanisms that determine many physical characteristics and control much of our body chemistry. A whole new field of research is opening up:Our map of copy number variation in the human genome demonstrates the ubiquity and complexity of this form of genomic variation. The abundance of functional sequences of all types both within and flanking areas of copy number variation suggests that the contribution of CNVs to phenotypic variation is likely to be appreciable. This prediction is underscored by the impact of copy number variation on variation in gene expression.Buried in the report was the observation that although their samples came from four geographical areas, the samples divided themselves neatly into three distinct groups. The Chinese and Japanese fell into the same group, with the Europeans and Africans being the other two:“In contrast to other classes of human genetic variation, the population genetics of copy number variation remains unexplored. The distribution of copy number variation within and among different populations is shaped by mutation, selection and demographic history….To demonstrate the utility of copy number variation genotypes for population genetic inference we performed population clustering on 67 genotyped biallelic CNVs. We obtained the optimal clustering with the assumption of three ancestral populations, with the African, European and Asian populations clearly differentiated.Click here for a striking graph of how sharply the three groups are separated. The legend on the graph denotes people groups: Nigeria (YRI), Europe (CEU), Japan (JPT) and China (CHB).1Redon et al, “Global variation in copy number in the human genome,” Nature 444, 444-454 (23 November 2006) | doi:10.1038/nature05329.See also: BBC News, National Geographic and [email protected] this study considered only a limited sample, this is either a remarkable coincidence or confirmation of the biblical account in Genesis 9 to 11 describing all the peoples of the earth coming from the three sons of Noah. Further studies should confirm with larger numbers of samples from more locations that all the world’s population can be separated into three groups. How will this affect the popular “Out of Africa” theory of man’s origin? Further research could create quite a lot of stress among anthropologists whose careers are based on the “Out of Africa” story. What new tale will evolutionists come up with to account for three ancestral populations? Not surprisingly, the major news media, such as the BBC, had practically nothing to say about there being only three ancestral populations, focusing rather on the medical aspects of the paper. A review of the paper by Physorg, however, jumps to the defense:Evolution is another area that will come under new scrutiny. The “Out of Africa” scenario, by which Homo sapiens emerged from east Africa and spread around the globe, will not be challenged, though. Our origins are so recent that the vast majority of CNVs, around 89 percent, was found to be shared among the 269 people who volunteered blood as samples for the study. These individuals included Japanese from Tokyo, Han Chinese from Beijing, Yoruba from Nigeria and Americans of Northern and Western European ancestry. All the same, there are widespread differences in CNVs according to the three geographical origins of the samples. This implies that, over the last 200,000 years or so, subtle variants have arisen in the genome to allow different populations of humans adapt to their different environments, Wellcome Trust Sanger said in a press release.So it sounds like “Out of Africa” is safe. All we are asked to believe is that in the course of 200,000 imaginary years, or perhaps 10,000 generations, there has been so little mixing of the gene pool that we still see three very distinct groups. This could be a problem. We are still left with the requirement that at some point in the past, say about 200,000 imaginary years ago (or perhaps only 3400 years ago) there was a time when the human population, for some unexplained reason, shrank to the point that it was able to form three distinct genetic groups. Sorry, but this is still sounding a lot like the three sons of Noah.—DK(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Craig Ervine provided an important thrust to the innings as Zimbabwe set Kenya a big target and then completed a 161-run rout on Sunday in the last Group A match of the World Cup. ScoreErvine’s stroke-filled 66 stood out in a batting performance that helped Zimbabwe score an imposing 308 for six after electing to bat in the inconsequential match.In reply, Kenya were all out for 147 in 36 overs in the face of some tight bowling by the spinners.Zimbabwe finished with two wins after having beaten Canada earlier in the league, while Kenya remained without a win.Kenya were led by veteran all-rounder Steve Tikolo in his last match after regular captain Jimmy Kamande was ruled out due to a knee injury.Kenya’s batting succumbed in the face of Zimbabwe’s first 300-plus total in the tournament.Ervine provided the impetus amid a strong middle-order batting performance, striking a brisk 66 and adding 105 runs for the fifth wicket with Elton Chigumbura, who made 38.Ervine struck nine fours and a six during his fluent 54-ball knock, during which he often worked the ball cleverly off his legs. He was out in the 48th over when he played on a delivery from pace bowler Elijah Otieno.But the Kenyans got no respite as Prosper Utseya struck 19 off just six balls, including a six and three boundaries off the first four deliveries off the last over of the innings bowled by Otieno.Zimbabwe had earlier made up for two early dismissals as Tatenda Taibu and Vusi Sibanda added 110 for the third wicket in just under 20 overs.advertisementThe partnership was broken due to a mix up that saw both batsmen at the same end. Sibanda had to go back after an entertaining 57-ball 61 in which he hit seven fours and a six to Tikolo that had taken him to his 13th half-century.Taibu struck 53 off 74 balls, completing his 18th half-century as well as 3,000 runs in limited-overs internationals with a well-timed four to the point boundary. But he was out soon after as he tried one reverse-sweep too many against leg-spinner James Ngoche and was trapped lbw.The Kenyan batting line-up struggled from the start.After pace bowler Chris Mpofu provided the initial breakthrough by trapping David Obuya lbw, left-arm spinner Ray Price showed his expertise with the new ball.He removed Tikolo and well-set opener Alex Obanda, both lbw. Collins Obuya was run out and Utseya removed Tanmay Mishra as half the Kenyan side was dismissed by the 12th over.The game meandered on from then with Kenya only ensuring there were no embarrassment, Nehemieh Odhiambo making an unbeaten 44.
Companies in this story: (TSX:RY, TSX:TD, TSX:BMO)Armina Ligaya, The Canadian Press TORONTO — Royal Bank of Canada has rolled out its robo-adviser platform across the country as demand grows for lower-cost, digital investing options.After launching RBC InvestEase late last year on a trial basis, the Toronto-based lender has now officially opened up the service to new and existing customers across Canada.The platform was developed in response to the “growing middle” segment of clients who want investment advice but do it all online, said Rebecca Peacock, senior director of strategy for RBC InvestEase.“With all of these digital channels invading our lives, more and more people want to do their investing online,” she said. “Up until a few years ago, the only option to do everything online is to do it yourself. And not everyone is comfortable doing that.”The national rollout comes as competition in the robo-adviser space between both incumbent banks and fintechs heats up.Toronto-Dominion Bank recently partnered with U.S. firm Hydrogen to launch its own “robo-guidance” product, and the Bank of Montreal was the first of its peers to launch its digital investing platform, dubbed SmartFolio, in 2016.Meanwhile, robo-adviser Wealthsimple now has roughly 100,000 clients in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K., and manages more than $2.5 billion in assets.Prior to the national launch, RBC’s InvestEase was limited on a pilot basis to residents in Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan.Customers who use the digitally automated investment adviser will pay 0.5 per cent per year in management fees on investment balances, on top of any management expense ratios (MER) embedded in particular funds.The required minimum balance is $1,000, and RBC says it is waiving its management fee until next October for new clients who sign on within a certain timeframe.
Paris: OPEC’s oil output dropped sharply last month as a result of steep production cuts in Venezuela and kingpin Saudi Arabia, the cartel said on Wednesday. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ combined oil production plunged by 534,000 barrels per day in March, it said in a report citing secondary sources. OPEC does not release its own production data. Venezuela, in the throes of political troubles, sanctions and repeated power blackouts, pumped 289,000 fewer barrels per day than the previous month, taking production to 732,000 bpd. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThis compares to the more than a million barrels per day Venezuela was pumping at the start of the year, and its production capacity of nearly two mbpd in 2017. Kingpin Saudi Arabia’s production, meanwhile, fell by 324,000 bpd, according to OPEC’s sources, the report said. This, analysts say, is a result of the kingdom’s determination to support oil prices in line with a production cut deal between OPEC countries and non-member Russia that is to run until June. These efforts appear to be paying off. Oil prices rose at their fastest pace in 14 years over the first quarter of the year. On Wednesday the WTI futures contract, the benchmark for US production, stood at 64.42 and its European counterpart, Brent, at 70.95.
