No more foamy beer, thanks to magnets

first_imgFew sights at a bar are more deflating than a bottle of beer overflowing with foam. This overfoaming, called gushing, arises when fungi infect the barley grains in beer’s malt base. The microorganisms latch onto barley with surface proteins called hydrophobins. During the brewing process, these hydrophobins can attract carbon dioxide molecules produced by the mashed barley as it ferments, making the beer far too bubbly. Brewers try to tamp down the gushing by adding hops extract, an antifoaming agent that binds to the proteins first. Now, food scientists in Belgium have hit upon a technological solution: magnets. When the team applied a magnetic field to a malt infused with hops extract, the magnets dispersed the antifoaming agent into tinier particles. Those smaller particles were much more effective at binding to more hydrophobins, blocking carbon dioxide and decreasing gushing, the team will report next month in the Journal of Food Engineering. During tests in a real brewery, the magnets decreased excess foaming so effectively that brewers needed much lower amounts of hops extract—a potential cost-saving measure. Future studies could explore whether magnetic fields alone could reduce foaming on an industrial scale, the team says.last_img read more

Euro 2016: Wales stun Belgium 3-1 to reach semifinals

first_imgWales produced a stunning upset to reach the Euro 2016 semi-finals after Hal Robson-Kanu’s superbly fashioned goal and Sam Vokes’s late header secured a 3-1 victory over fancied Belgium on Friday to set up a clash with Portugal.Robson-Kanu left three Belgium players for dead with a ‘Cruyff’ turn and calmly stroked his finish into the net to put Wales ahead in the second half, while Vokes’s header ensured they reached their first ever major tournament semi-final.It was a crushing blow for heavy favourites Belgium, who had taken the lead in the 13th minute when Radja Nainggolan rifled the ball into the top corner from distance only for Wales captain Ashley Williams to level with a header from a corner.There was a frenetic opening to a match that many had predicted would be a cagey encounter as Belgium took the early initiative and would have grabbed the lead after seven minutes but for some superb last-ditch Wales defending. (Full Euro 2016 coverage )Wayne Hennessey saved superbly from Yannick Carrasco before efforts from Thomas Meunier and Eden Hazard were blocked by lunging defenders as Wales, looking to talisman Gareth Bale for an outlet, sought to stem the early Belgian tide.The Welsh were undone, however, when Nainggolan took a touch, then unleashed a monstrously powerful shot from 25 metres that thundered past Hennessey’s outstretched fingers into the top corner to give Belgium the lead.Instead of fuelling a Belgian onslaught, however, the goal seemed to swing momentum back in Wales’s favour, with Chris Coleman’s side fluffing a great chance to level when Neil Taylor sidefooted at goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from six metres.advertisementThe equaliser arrived five minutes later in the 55th, though, and was clearly crafted on the training ground. Having won a corner, Wales’s players lined up behind each other, before breaking from the pack as Aaron Ramsey whipped the ball in.Wales captain Williams, who had recovered from a shoulder injury to make the starting lineup, found himself unmarked to head down and past Courtois for the first goal the Belgium keeper had conceded since their opening defeat by Italy.While Belgium began the second half stronger, with Romelu Lukaku glancing a header wide and Hazard flashing a shot just past the post, it was not long before Wales struck again with Robson-Kanu producing a sublime piece of individual skill.Ramsey’s cross found the striker in the area with his back to goal but he sold three Belgium players a dummy with a trademark ‘Cruyff’ turn and then sidefooted the ball powerfully past the helpless Courtois in the 55th minute.Belgium pushed hard for an equaliser but Wales were resilient and then broke with four minutes remaining as Chris Gunter crossed for substitute Vokes to leap and angle his header across goal into the net, sparking wild Welsh celebrations.last_img read more

Michigan DE Chase Winovich To Miss Senior Bowl Due To Injury

first_imgmichigan star chase winovich celebrates a win over wisconsinANN ARBOR, MI – OCTOBER 13: Chase Winovich #15 of the Michigan Wolverines leaves the field celebrating a 38-13 victory over the Wisconsin Badgers on October 13, 2018 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)The Senior Bowl will feature several intriguing prospects later this month, but Chase Winovich will not be one of those upperclassmen on the field.Although the Michigan star was scheduled to participate in the game, he’ll now have to sit out due to an ankle injury.He finished his career in Ann Arbor with 18.5 sacks, 166 tackles and three forced fumbles. His presence on the field and in the locker room made him one of the vocal leaders for the Wolverines.The senior pass-rusher played through severe pain in the Peach Bowl, as he tried to end his collegiate career on a positive note.Winovich is already considered one of the better prospects at defensive end, and some draft projections have him ranked even higher when listed as an outside linebacker.Unfortunately his absence does give him one less opportunity to shine in front of NFL scouts and executives.From the Detroit Free Press:Former Michigan football star defensive end Chase Winovich won’t play in the Senior Bowl next week due to an ankle injury.Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy confirmed the news to the Free Press on Thursday. Winovich had initially accepted an invitation to participate in the annual pre-NFL Draft showcase but pulled out this week due to the injury.It obviously isn’t ideal that he’ll have to miss the Senior Bowl, but it’s more important that Winovich is healthy enough to attend the NFL Combine. The star defender could really boost his draft stock with impressive performances in the physical drills.The Senior Bowl will be played on Jan. 26 at Ladd–Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.[Detroit Free Press]last_img read more

Worlds poorest countries falling further behind developing world UNICEF

Prepared for the Third UN Conference on Least Developed Countries, which is being held this week in Brussels, the report says that this alarming trend has a particularly strong impact on the children of the world’s 49 poorest nations, known as LDCs. The children’s well-being in these countries is threatened by poor education, malnourishment, exposure to disease and conflict and other blights, which present major obstacles to development and keep LDCs ensnared in a vicious cycle of poverty and despair.On the brighter side, the report, “Poverty and Children: Lessons of the 90s for Least Developed Countries,” also highlights a few models for progress. It says countries such as Bangladesh, Malawi and Uganda are actually closing the gap with other developing nations thanks to investment in basic social services for children, especially girls’ education.While noting that government action alone will not end the LDCs’ struggle for survival, the report prescribes major investment in basic social services as essential to breaking the cycle of poverty. “Universal access to basic social services of good quality – especially education, health and water and sanitation – gives governments a firm foundation for development,” said Carol Bellamy, UNICEF’s Executive Director. “As important, it ensures that the rights of their children are met.”Such investment requires a reallocation of national budgets and increased overseas assistance, UNICEF noted, adding that currently LDC governments spend far more on defence and debt services than on basic social services. According to the report, Bangladesh is one LDC that has demonstrated what higher basic services spending can do. It increased the percentage of it national budget dedicated to basic social services from 22.6 per cent in 1990 to 25.7 per cent in 1999. This has dramatically reduced mortality in children under five while contributing to a significant rise in female literacy, among other benefits. read more

Astronomers observe unusual outburst activity of binary star AG Draconis

first_img Located in a spherical halo around the Milky Way, AG Draconis (AG Dra for short) is a classical symbiotic variable binary of type S. The system consists of a cool red giant with an effective temperature of about 4,300 K and a hot white dwarf with a high temperature of at least 100,000 K. The red giant is about 30 times larger than our sun, however, it has a mass of only 1.5 solar masses. The system’s white dwarf is about 40 to 60 percent less massive than the sun. The stars fully orbit each other approximately every 550 days.AG Dra is one of the most studied symbiotic star systems as its variations in brightness have been observed by astronomers for more than a century. The binary experiences a characteristic symbiotic activity with the alternation of active and quiescent stages. Its apparent magnitude of around 9.8 is known to increase by up to 1.4 when outbursts occur during active stages that take place at intervals of nine to fifteen years.Previous observations of AG Dra have shown that these active stages consist of several outbursts repeating at about a one-year interval. The observed periods of activity start with a major outburst that is usually cool as the expanding pseudo-atmosphere of the white dwarf cools down. However, the latest phase of activity, which started with an outburst in 2015, appears to be different from previous ones.A team of astronomers led by Jaroslav Merc of the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Slovakia, has analyzed the recent activity of AG Dra using data from the Astronomical Ring for Access to Spectroscopy (ARAS) database. They found that the brightness of AG Dra started to increase in the first half of 2015, with a weak pre-outburst. The second and more prominent outburst occurred in April 2016.The study revealed that in May 2015 the brightness of AG Dra began to rise, achieving 10.7 mag in B and 9.6 mag in the V filter. The researchers described the event as a less prominent, minor outburst. During the second outburst that took place in April 2016, the binary reached maximum brightness of 9.9 and 9.1 mag in the B and V filters, respectively. Given that both brightenings were classified as minor (hot) outbursts, the recent period of activity of AG Dra seems unusual when compared to previous ones.”According to the photometric behavior, both brightenings belong to the minor outbursts of AG Dra. Such photometric behavior of the active stage is very untypical because more often, the activity of AG Dra starts with the major outburst,” the paper reads.The astronomers noted that active periods of AG Dra usually commence with major outbursts when the brightness reaches 8.8 and 8.4 mag in the B and V filters, respectively. The newly observed unusual activity raises questions about the nature of these outbursts. The authors assume that the events could belong to a new type of outbursts or they could indicate some transition between the hot and cool outbursts.

European astronomers have spotted an unusual outburst activity of a binary star system known as AG Draconis. New observations reveal that the recent changes of brightness of this star are slightly different than the changes that occurred during previous outbursts.

Nuts keep diabetics heart healthy

first_imgEating a handful of nuts daily, particularly tree nuts, may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease among people with Type-2 diabetes, associated with an increased risk for high cholesterol, heart disease and stroke, say researchers, including one of Indian origin. Tree nuts such as walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, pistachios, pecans, macadamias, hazelnuts and pine nuts were strongly associated with reduced risk of coronary events, cardiac death and total mortality compared with peanuts. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe results showed that eating even a small amount of nuts had an effect. While the exact biological mechanisms of nuts on heart health are unclear, researchers noted that nuts appear to improve blood sugar control, blood pressure, metabolism of fats, inflammation and blood vessel wall function. “Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and a major cause of heart attacks, strokes and disability for people living with Type-2 diabetes,” said Prakash Deedwania, Professor at the University of California-San Francisco. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”Efforts to understand the link between the two conditions are important to prevent cardiovascular complications of Type-2 diabetes and help people make informed choices about their health,” Deedwania added. In this study, reported in the Circulation Research journal, the team used data from 16,217 men and women before and after they were diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes. People who increased their intake of nuts after being diagnosed with diabetes had an 11 per cent lower risk of cardiovascular disease, a 15 per cent lower risk of coronary heart disease, a 25 per cent lower risk of cardiovascular disease death, and a 27 per cent lower risk of all-cause premature death. Each additional serving per week of total nuts was associated with a three per cent lower risk of heart disease and six per cent lower risk of heart disease death. Adding more nuts to one’s diets proved beneficial probably at any age or stage. “It seems never too late to improve diet and lifestyle after diagnosis among individuals with Type-2 diabetes,” the researchers said.last_img read more
