India vs England: Rohit Sharma blasts record 3rd T20I hundred

by ,

first_imgRohit Sharma smashed his third T20I hundred on Sunday as India beat England by seven wickets at the Country Ground in Bristol to win the three-match T20I series 2-1.He finally scored a ton after missing out on one against Ireland in the first T20I in Dublin last month. Rohit was dismissed for 97 off 61 balls by Peter Chase in the final over of the Indian innings at the Malahide Cricket Club Ground on June 27.Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan were involved in a 160-run opening partnership against Ireland’s hapless bowling attack. The pair was separated when Dhawan fell to Kevin O’Brien for 80. They fell 11 runs short of the highest ever opening partnership in T20Is. India won the match by 76 runs.But on Sunday, he was not letting the opportunity go. After scoring, 32 and 5 in the first two games, Rohit showed his class in the series decided when his team needed him.(Highlights | Report)A super by the hitman @ImRo45!It’s his third in T20Is, joining @manuz05 as the leading century-maker in the format! #ENGvIND pic.twitter.com/BZXQ4290tzICC (@ICC) July 8, 2018Also read- MS Dhoni continues record-breaking spree in T20IsThe Mumbai Indians captain came out all guns blazing in Bristol and looked a man in complete control. Even though he lost Shikhar Dhawan fairly quick, he stuck in there and kept the run-rate going in India’s favour. He struck a 39-run stand with KL Rahul before the latter fell for 19 and then went onto stitch a 89-run partnership with captain Virat Kohli to give India the advantage in the run-chase.advertisementRohit completed his fifty off 31 balls in the ninth over and kept the scoreboard ticking along with the odd boundary here and there as Kohli was on the charge. However, once Kohli got out, he took the onus on himself and completed his century in the 19th over to score his third T20I century. He got a single of the bowling off Chris Jordan to reach the landmark off 56 balls.He hit 11 fours and five sixes in this 56-ball 100 not out as India won the match by seven wickets in the following over to bag the series. This was their sixth consecutive T20I series victory and eighth in a three-match T20I series.New Zealand’s Colin Munro is the only other batsman who has three hundreds in T20 Internationals.Rohit is also the only batsman to smash at least three centuries in all the three formats of the game.During the course of the innings, Rohit also became the second Indian to score 2000 runs in T20 cricket and the fifth batsman overall. New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill, Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik and Kohli are the other four. The Indian opener needed 14 to get to the landmark before India’s third T20I match against England at Bristol. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli struck a 89-run stand for the third wicket in Bristol (ICC Photo)Kohli had become the fastest to reach 2000 runs in the format when he scored eight in the first T20I at Manchester. On Sunday, Rohit reached the landmark with a four off Jake Ball, on the last delivery of the second over of the third T20I.The Mumbaikar came to United Kingdom in poor form after a drab IPL according to his standards. However, it was primarily due to a change in his batting position. Mumbai Indians were the defending champions before the start of the 2018 IPL season but Rohit had failed to inspire his team, managing only 286 runs from 14 matches.Rohit was also dropped for the one-off Test against Afghanistan after a spate of poor performances in red-ball cricket.Rohit is the only man with three double hundreds in ODIs. He scored a double ton against Australia in 2013 before a world record 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014 at the Eden Gardens. He then smashed an unbeaten 208 against the same opponents in Mohali.last_img read more

Calgary city council votes to continue work on possible 2026 Olympic bid

by ,

first_imgCALGARY – Calgary has pulled back from killing a bid for the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Games.City council was steering towards an off-ramp last week, but changed course and voted 9-6 in favour of continued work on a potential bid Monday.“I’m really happy that councillors . . . really spent a ton of time over the weekend considering their position, analyzing themselves, asking themselves questions about whether they were doing the right thing or not,” Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi said.“I was really encouraging my council colleagues to think about the big picture, about what we’d be giving up if we stop now.”The city will continue establishing a bid corporation, developing a public engagement campaign and planning a plebiscite for later this year.The proposed makeup of the bid corporation’s board of directors includes representation from Calgary and Canmore, Alta., the federal and provincial governments, the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic committees and Indigenous communities.Nenshi didn’t want the city to bail on a bid before the financial picture becomes clear or before Calgarians have a chance to say what they think.But some councillors were becoming uncomfortable with what they felt was a lack of clear information from city administration. A vote on a slate of motions keeping a bid on the table barely passed 8-6 in March.Councillors on a priority and finance committee voted 9-1 last week in favour of putting continued work on a bid to another vote.Sensing a bid was in jeopardy, Olympic and Paralympic athletes who live and train in the Calgary area began campaigning via letters and social media messages to councillors.Calgary’s chamber of commerce joined them saying Calgarians deserve to see the outcome of more rigorous exploration of a bid.“We’re happy we’ve lived to fight another day, although council has brought up some really important comments,” Olympic bobsledder Seyi Smith said Monday outside city council chambers.“The onus is really on us, the community, to make sure we do this properly.“Now that the bidco is going to be put together, whoever is on that committee, the entire city, our province, the country is going to be looking at you specifically. Can you do this right? We just hope you can.”Calgary was the host city of the 1988 Winter Olympics. Council heard Monday getting another 30 years out of the ’88 legacy facilities will cost between $200 million and $250 million.Nenshi has indicated a successful Calgary bid could bring in much-needed infrastructure money from the province and the feds.The International Olympic Committee’s deadline to submit 2026 bids is January 2019. The successful host city will be announced September 2019.A bid’s price tag is estimated at $30 million. Calgary and the provincial and federal governments have committed to a three-way split on the cost.The Alberta government is making its share conditional on Calgary holding a plebiscite to measure public enthusiasm for hosting another Winter Games.Calgary has already spent about $6 million. That sum includes the work of the Calgary Bid Exploration Committee which wrapped up its work late last year.CBEC concluded it would cost $4.6 billion to host the games, although council has since been told that estimate is likely too low.“There’s no business case to continue proceeding with an Olympics,” said Colin Craig, Alberta’s director of the Canadian Taxpayers Association. “The reality is, a lot of households and businesses are struggling right now.“If we go ahead and bid for the Olympics, you can imagine what’s going to happen to property taxes. The reality is there’s no money for an Olympic bid.”Coun. Jeromy Farkas listed a number of IOC corruption scandals in recent years among his reasons for opposing a bid.Former luger Jeff Christie countered the 1988 Games in Calgary and the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C. weren’t beset by corruption.“I think we have an opportunity to do it differently and as Canadians we won’t engage in that type of activity,” he said. “If we do proceed to a bid, I think we’ll stay above board.”last_img read more

Continuing the cycle of giving, the Aurora Prize carries forward that legacy of gratitude.“Last year’s call for nominations helped to shine a light on a number of remarkable humanitarian heroes,” said Co-Founder and Selection Committee Member Vartan Gregorian. “We’re thrilled to again open the call for nominations, during which we hope to unearth even more inspiring stories of selflessness and hope.”The second annual Aurora Prize will be presented on April 24, 2017, in Yerevan, Armenia.last_img read more

US construction spending rises 11 per cent in October homes and schools

US construction spending rises 1.1 per cent in October; homes and schools drive gains by Josh Boak, The Associated Press Posted Dec 2, 2014 2:49 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Oct. 9, 2014 file photo, a man works on the roof of a building under construction in Middlefield, Ohio. The Commerce Department reports on U.S. construction spending in October on Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File) WASHINGTON – Newly built homes and schools boosted U.S. construction spending in October to the highest level since May.The Commerce Department said Tuesday that construction spending rose a seasonally adjusted 1.1 per cent in October, after having slipped 0.1 per cent in September.Fueling the gains in October was a 1.8 per cent increase in spending on single-family houses. A similar boost in building schools led to a 2.3 per cent increase in government construction spending. Meanwhile, private construction of power plants and commercial centres slipped in October.Building activity has been slowly improving for much of 2014, although its contribution to broader economic growth has been relatively modest. Homebuilding has crept upward, limited by meagre wage gains that have barely outpaced inflation. That has cut into the amount of money that people have to spend on homes or rent.Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial, called the report “welcome news” but cautioned that single-family house construction “remains a shadow of previous levels.”“This is showing up in less construction employment and a smaller acceleration in wages than we would like given the age of this recovery, which in dog years is well into middle age,” Swonk said.October’s solid growth in homebuilding underlines that sector’s weakness.“The October rebound does not undo the damage” caused by the marked slowdown in construction spending since the start of 2014, said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics.Over the past 12 months, private residential construction spending has risen just 1.9 per cent to a rate of $353.8 billion. That lags behind total construction spending, which has climbed 3.3 per cent from a year ago to $971 billion.New-home sales have risen only 1 per cent, according to a separate Commerce Department report. Builders are largely targeting wealthier buyers. That can boost profits but often means less construction to fuel economic growth. The median price of a new home has risen 15.4 per cent in the past 12 months to $305,000, a pace that’s more than double the average annual price increase for sales of existing homes tracked by the National Association of Realtors.Still, builders are hiring at a slightly faster clip than last year. Construction companies are adding an average of 14,000 workers a month so far this year, compared with a monthly average of 11,083 in 2013. The challenge is that stronger hiring and economic growth during 2014 has yet to translate into the wage growth that could further propel construction spending and hiring.And because Tuesday’s report contained upward revisions to August and September construction spending, the sector likely fed into faster overall economic growth. The revisions suggest that gross domestic product rose at an annual rate of 4.1 per cent during the July-September quarter, rather than the 3.9 per cent figure recently reported by the Commerce Department, said Daniel Silver, an analyst at JPMorgan Chase.Architectural firms are also reporting greater demand for their services, however, a sign that construction spending should improve in the months ahead.The American Institute of Architects said that its October billings index was 53.7. Any score above 50 indicates that billings increased. A breakdown of the index suggests that municipal governments and nonprofits are spending more on architectural designs, after having kept their spending in check during the more than five-year recovery from the Great Recession. read more

Metso Truck Body hits the heights at Terrafame Sotkamo mine

by ,

first_imgMetso may have only just released its new Metso Truck Body, but it has already proven its worth during tests at Terrafame’s multi-metal mine in Sotkamo, Finland.The mine has been the first one in the world to test the Metso-designed, light-weight body, which can hold almost nine tonnes more payload, improving the efficiency of the mine’s hauling operations.As an added benefit, the rubber lining of the body cuts the perceived noise in half during loading and significantly reduces vibration.Metso officially launched the new truck body at the Bauma fair, in Munich, earlier this month.Esa-Tapani Leinonen, Head of Mining Department at the Terrafame Sotkamo mine, said: “The experience we’ve had during the first few months of testing the body is positive. The capacity and the durability of the body match Metso’s promises. Higher payload and driver comfort are both top priorities for us. The feedback from the drivers has been very positive.“Metso seems to have done a great job in designing this light-weight body. Despite the higher, 325-t total load, the elevated rear flange manages to keep the boulders on-board without problems,” he continued.The rubber-lined, light-weight body was installed on Terrafame’s oldest haul truck, a Hitachi EH3500, in December 2018. Prior to installation, the truck already had an impressive track record of 50,000 hours of operation, according to Metso. The new body hauled its first loads from the Kuusilampi open pit just before Christmas.The mine’s truck fleet is in operation 24/7. Currently, the ore is loaded from the 60-m-deep pit on to the trucks with a Caterpillar 910 Series excavator. One truck drives approximately 40 rounds in a day, equivalent to around 6,500 t of payload.Timo Sarvijärvi, Head of Mining Sales, Metso Finland, said: “A light weight without compromising durability was our driver in designing the Metso Truck Body. During the test period, we are keeping track of the hauled tonnage and collecting driver feedback.“In addition to the higher payload, the body is lighter to carry when empty, which further increases cost efficiency. Moreover, we have recorded a reduction of around 10 dB in the noise level on a rubber-lined standard body, which means that rubber is 50% quieter compared to steel. We expect at least a similar reduction in the Terrafame trial.”Kristiina Karjalainen, Haul Truck Driver at the Sotkamo mine, was among the first drivers to have tested the new Metso Truck Body. She said: “The new rubber-lined truck body has indeed cut noise significantly. Now the loading sounds I hear in my cabin resemble more of a whiz than a loud rumble. There’s been a noticeable reduction in vibration as well.”According to Karjalainen, the first 40-t bucket load has always been the hardest for the driver. After that, the rock bed smoothes out the noise.“The side shields of the new light-weight body work as they should, too, protecting the side view mirrors from falling boulders. I would definitely like to see a rubber-lined body installed on truck number 10, the one that I usually drive,” she added.The Terrafame Sotkamo multi-metal mine, which produces nickel, zinc, copper and cobalt, reached its intended production level during last year. Yet, there’s plenty of material left to haul, with the mine recently applying for a permit to process 18 Mt of ore and 45 Mt of overburden annually.Esa-Tapani Leinonen said: “In 2021, the amount of overburden to excavate will double, as we proceed with the Kuusilampi pit expansion and remove the large layer of rock covering the orebody.“Before that, we will have to rethink the responsibilities and the composition of both our own as well as our contractor’s hauling processes. As the amount of hauled material grows, maintaining cost efficiency throughout our truck operations becomes more and more important.”last_img read more

Lanimal le plus rapide du monde le guépard La gazelle Non un

by ,

first_imgL’animal le plus rapide du monde : le guépard ? La gazelle ? Non : un crustacéDanemark – Les chercheurs de l’université technique du Danemark ont fait une découverte surprenante : l’animal le plus rapide du monde serait un copépode, petit crustacé mesurant 1 à 2 millimètres. Les copépodes sont des crustacés que l’on peut rencontrer dans l’eau de mer comme dans l’eau douce. Les scientifiques de l’université du Danemark ont analysé une série de vidéos mettant en scène ces animaux lors de leurs bonds, réalisés à une vitesse spectaculaire.Ainsi, en une seconde, ils pourraient parcourir une distance équivalant à plusieurs centaines de fois la longueur de leur corps. Certes ils ne se déplacent qu’à une vitesse de 3 à 6 km/h mais rapporté à l’échelle humaine, cela donne des résultats bien plus impressionnants : en respectant les proportionnalités, une personne mesurant 1,70 mètre atteindrait une vitesse de plus de 6.100 km/h (3.800 miles/h) lors d’un saut.Ces crustacés avancent en bondissant grâce à de fortes impulsions de leurs 8 pattes. Avec la résistance opposée par l’eau qui constitue leur milieu naturel, les muscles leur permettant de bondir sont 10 fois plus forts que tous ceux vus jusqu’alors.

Aggressive VIP strategy boosts table drop but hold shattered as GKLs 1Q19

by ,

first_imgKorean casino operator Grand Korea Leisure (GKL) reported its lowest first quarter operating profit since 1Q12 in the three months to 31 March 2019, with profit plummeting 47% year-on-year to KRW16.6 billion (US$14.1 million).The decline is largely attributed to GKL’s aggressive promotion strategy in the VIP and premium mass segments, which saw a significant boost in table drop but also negatively impacted hold and margins. South Korea’s foreigner-only casinos see revenues grow in August RelatedPosts Notably, VIP table drop grew 47% year-on-year to KRW747 billion (US$636.4 million), while premium mass was up 28%, but revenue still fell 10% to KRW109.2 billion.In a note, JP Morgan analyst DS Kim observed that the growth in table drop “merely reflects GKL’s aggressive promotion, where the company issued substantial amounts of ‘free chips’ to high-end players. These chips effectively worked as a rebate to induce players which successfully boosted the drop but failed to grow actual revenues (as players were able to win dollars against casinos with ‘free chips’).“Thus GKL’s hold ratio continued to be weak at 9.6% (versus 14.1% in 1Q18) and gaming revenue fell 11% year-on-year to KRW108 billion.”GKL’s operating profit margin also fell due to heavy comps, down from 25.7% in 1Q18 to 15.2%.However, operating profit did at least show positive momentum sequentially, up 105% from a low of KRW8.1 billion in 4Q18, with JP Morgan stating that GKL has already begun to scale back its aggressive promotion strategy. 70% of Macau gaming market driven by 400,000 premium players: brokerage Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August Load Morelast_img read more

Marketing Blitz to Promote MacDill AFB

by ,

first_imgThe Tampa Bay Defense Alliance is rolling out a campaign to promote MacDill Air Force Base at a time when DOD is facing budget constraints and pursues a new round of base closures.The initiative is intended to raise awareness of the installation among area residents and businesses, as well as in Washington. A central theme of the effort is showcasing the robust partnership between the community and MacDill, reported the Tampa Tribune.The initiative is centered on the “My MacDill” website, which provides residents and local organizations an opportunity to post photos, videos and personal memories about the base and its contributions to the Tampa region and the nation. The site features a series of interviews with personnel who have served at MacDill, including retired Army Gen. Tommy Franks, who commanded U.S. Central Command from 2000 to 2004.The campaign also will be rolled out at local sporting events, music festivals and other public happenings. One of the effort’s goals is to go viral on the Internet, at least locally, said John Schueler, president of the defense alliance.“This is like the ALS Challenge, without the water,” said Schueler. “We were interested in an approach that can bring the community together.”The campaign was timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the first flights at the airfield, which occurred last month. A second 75th anniversary celebration will be held next April to mark the airfield’s formal naming as MacDill Field.The initiative follows the release of a report from Deloitte Consulting outlining actions that Tampa officials can take to preserve MacDill and its many tenants, including U.S. Special Operations Command, Special Operations Command Central and the Joint Communications Support Element, according to the story. The report calls for the state to allocate sufficient funding and staff to its military affairs organization; funding independent studies of base strengths, weaknesses and economic impact; investing in infrastructure; and creating a commanders council to foster greater communication between the community and base officials.

first_imgVirat Kohli and Anushka SharmaInstagramReports of Anushka Sharma’s pregnancy keep surfacing on social media and the speculations have followed her whenever she was seen wearing loose clothes or for staying away from films. Anushka hasn’t paid any heed to such rumours but it irks her when she needs to clarify the reports.”What irks me is the clarification part. Do I need to clarify? Nahi! But then that’s how it is. Any actress, who gets married… sabke baare mein they’ve said something. Someone could be wearing clothes that are loose. That’s because they’re trendy. But they’re said to be pregnant. It’s like a monkey on your back. You can’t do anything about it. You just ignore it,” Anushka Sharma told Filmfare in an inteview.When Anushka was asked if the rumours of her pregnacy keep filmmakers away from her, she said, “I’m fortunate this has not happened. It could happen. An actress gets married and the next thing they talk about it is, ‘Is she pregnant?’ When she’s dating it’s like, ‘Shaadi karne wale hai ki nahi?’ It’s crude. You should allow people to live their life. What’s the need to jump the gun? Then put someone in a position where they end up clarifying unnecessarily.”Anushka has not signed anything new post-Zero. But if you ask her about it, she says that it was a conscious decision as she wanted to take a couple of months off after Zero.Meanwhile, Anushka and husband Virat Kohli have flown to Miami with the Indian Cricket Team and a few pictures of them have surfaced online.

Meet Adi Spiegelman – The Tel Aviv Tennis Player Who Has Made

by ,

first_imgIt takes a lot of dedication and hard work to be consistent, especially when you are in the field of sports. A large investment also plays a key role if you want to become an athlete in Israel. Adi Spiegelman from Tel Aviv dreamt of becoming a tennis player since her childhood. In order to finance herself for training and travel across the globe, she also started working as a model. In the nick of time, her modelling career was on the rise and she left everyone surprised by getting featured in the popular newspapers like VOGUE Italy, VT Girl Fashion magazine, Institute magazine, NORD magazine among others. She has also acted in films and series.Throwing light on her tennis career, her breakthrough was winning the European Championship whose aim was the promotion of peace – Israel Vs Iraq. Her tennis journey began at a very early age and she has been a part of several tennis competitions in Acre and has travelled to several places of the world alone. She said, “It gave me a lot of values like maturity, independence, ability to manage on my own, know new languages and be accomplished in everything I wanted to be.”However, she made a big jump in modelling where she became a household name. As soon as she completes her military service in the IDF, the 20-year old plans to bounce back on the court again. In the Israel championships, she was a rookie but she strongly believes that military service is something she always wanted to do and make a name for herself.After fashion, she will get back into tennis and she aims to reach the peak of her career in the next 4 years when she would be 24. “I’m hyperactive and I love working all day. Modelling is something that has taken over me, but I don’t know how much longer it will really last”, she said.IBT does not endorse any of the above content.last_img read more

Doctor Who Ghost Stories Part 2 Introduces New Dangers

by ,

first_imgLast we left them, Lucy, Grant (a.k.a. superhero The Ghost), Jennifer, and the Doctor were in mortal danger at the smoldering hands of The Smoke.Of course, our champion isn’t going to die in the first of a four-part series. But that cliffhanger no doubt left some readers with a lump in their throat.On Christmas Eve 1992, then-eight-year-old Grant Gordon mistakenly swallowed a wish-granting gemstone, gaining superpowers like those in his favorite comic books. Now, that stone will lead the Doctor—and Grant, Lucy, and Jennifer—across space and time to find the other three missing pieces.When they land in dystopian-future New York City, superhero The Ghost meets his super-villain match, The Smoke, also empowered by one of the gems.As the fearsome entity readies a killing blow, the Doctor steps in to save the day.“A hero doesn’t freeze. A hero rises to the occasion,” a grateful Lucy narrates. “A hero chases away the monsters and saves the day. Or sacrifices themselves so that others can live.”via Titan ComicsIssue two, written by George Mann with art by Pasquale Qualano and Dijjo Lima, features the Twelfth Doctor’s trademark sarcasm and compassion: He insists that The Smoke is not a super villain, but “a very confused, very scared young man” who needs their help.Initially reminiscent of Pixar’s The Incredibles plot (a disaffected super-fan tries to follow in his idol’s footsteps), the comic takes a quick turn toward the unexpected, as the Doctor and his groupies reunite with some old friends foes.In their quest to recover the remaining gemstones and help the people—er, dominant species—of Nixtus III, the team split up, facing their own dangers. Will everyone survive?Part two of Titan Comics’ Ghost Stories mini series is available now in print for $8.Comixology, meanwhile, sells single-issue digital editions (one through seven) for $1.99 each; fans can also subscribe to the series online.last_img read more

PET imaging shows the average 18F-AV45 uptake per animal group at 8 and 13 months of age. A significant interaction of genotype treatment was observed in the cortex (p = 0.0248), hippocampus (p = 0.0071) and thalamus (p = 0.0084), indicating reduced [18F]-AV45 uptake in BACE1 inhibited transgenic mice. Credit: MICA, University of Antwerp, Belgium.December 28, 2017 — In the December featured basic science article in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Belgian researchers report on the first large-scale longitudinal imaging study to evaluate BACE1 inhibition with micro-PET (positron emission tomography) in mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease. PET imaging has been established as an excellent identifier of the amyloid plaque and tau tangles that characterize Alzheimer’s disease. Now it is proving to be an effective way to gauge treatment effectiveness.The tracer makes it possible to image the effects of chronic administration of an inhibitor for an enzyme, called beta (β)-site amyloid precursor protein-cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1), which cuts off protein fragments that can lead to amyloid-β development and is more prevalent in brains affected by Alzheimer’s. It does this by binding to BACE1.The study compared control mice with those genetically-altered to have Alzheimer’s, and tested 18F-florbetapir (18F-AV45) along with two other tracers, 18F-FDG PET and 18F-PBR111. The mice received the BACE inhibitor at 7 weeks, then brain metabolism, neuroinflammation and amyloid-β pathology were measured using a micro-PET (μPET) scanner and each of the tracers. Baseline scans were done at 6-7 weeks and follow-up scans at 4,7 and 12 months. 18F-AV45 uptake was measured at 8 and 13 months of age. After the final scans, microscopic studies were performed.While all three tracers detected pathological differences between the genetically modified mice and the controls, only 18F-AV45 showed the effects of inhibitor treatment by identifying reduced amyloid-β pathology in the genetically modified mice. This was confirmed in the microscopic studies.The team of the Molecular Imaging Center Antwerp, Belgium, however warned, “This study clearly showed that accurate quantification of amyloid-beta tracers is critically important and that the non-specific uptake in the brain of subjects might be underestimated for some existing Alzheimer’s tracers that have fast metabolization profiles. The aim of this translational research is advancing results discovered at the bench so that they can be applied to patients at the bedside.”For more information: www.jnm.snmjournals.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
