US Grand Prix: Ferrari replace Sebastian Vettel’s car chassis ahead of final practice

first_imgFerrari changed the chassis of Sebastian Vettel’s car on Friday after failing to get to the bottom of problems he experienced in practice for what could be a title-deciding US Formula One Grand Prix.A team spokesman said mechanics had found nothing wrong with the car after the German complained the front felt “like jelly”, and had therefore, decided to change the survival cell as a precaution. He said no penalty would be incurred.The governing FIA said stewards had agreed the car could be submitted for re-scrutineering on Saturday before final practice.”I felt something was not right with the car so we came in a couple of times to check and then go out to double and triple check. We are looking into it to try to see something,” Vettel had said after second practice.Vettel is 59 points behind Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton with four races remaining.Hamilton, who was fastest in both practice sessions for a race he has won four times in the last five years, can secure his fourth championship if he beats Vettel by 16 points.last_img read more

Poor sleep triggers loneliness social rejection

first_imgPoor sleep can hamper your social life, say scientists who found that sleep-deprived people feel lonelier and less inclined to engage with others, avoiding close contact in much the same way as people with social anxiety.Researchers at the University of California (UC) Berkeley in the US, have found that alienating vibe makes sleep-deprived individuals more socially unattractive to others. Moreover, well-rested people feel lonely after just a brief encounter with a sleep-deprived person, potentially triggering a viral contagion of social isolation. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe findings, published in the journal Nature Communications, are the first to show a two-way relationship between sleep loss and becoming socially isolated, shedding new light on a global loneliness epidemic.Researchers found that brain scans of sleep-deprived people as they viewed video clips of strangers walking toward them showed powerful social repulsion activity in neural networks that are typically activated when humans feel their personal space is being invaded. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSleep loss also blunted activity in brain regions that normally encourage social engagement.To gauge the social effects of poor sleep, researchers conducted a series of intricate experiments using such tools as fMRI brain imaging, standardised loneliness measures, videotaped simulations and surveys.First, researchers tested the social and neural responses of 18 healthy young adults following a normal night’s sleep and a sleepless night.The participants viewed video clips of individuals with neutral expressions walking toward them. When the person on the video got too close, they pushed a button to stop the video, which recorded how close they allowed the person to get.As predicted, sleep-deprived participants kept the approaching person at a significantly greater distance away – between 18 and 60 per cent further back – than when they had been well-rested.Participants also had their brains scanned as they watched the videos of individuals approaching them.In sleep-deprived brains, researchers found heightened activity in a neural circuit known as the “near space network,” which is activated when the brain perceives potential incoming human threats.In contrast, another circuit of the brain that encourages social interaction, called the “theory of mind” network, was shut down by sleep deprivation, worsening the problem.For the online section of the study, more than 1,000 observers recruited via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk marketplace viewed videotapes of study participants discussing commonplace opinions and activities.The observers were unaware that the subjects had been deprived of sleep and rated each of them based on how lonely they appeared, and whether they would want to interact socially with them.Time and again, they rated study participants in the sleep-deprived state as lonelier and less socially desirable.To test whether sleep-loss-induced alienation is contagious, researchers asked observers to rate their own levels of loneliness after watching videos of study participants. They were surprised to find that otherwise healthy observers felt alienated after viewing just a 60-second clip of a lonely person.Through a standardised survey researchers found that the amount of sleep a person got from one night to the next accurately predicted how lonely and unsociable they would feel from one day to the next.last_img read more

YVR welcomes Airbus A350900 for the first time in Canada

center_img RICHMOND, B.C. — Earlier this week, Cathay Pacific made history when it debuted the industry’s newest aircraft – the Airbus A350-900 – in North America for the very first time.On March 28, the airline launched increased service between Vancouver and Hong Kong with the first scheduled Canadian arrival and departure of the A350-900. The state-of-the-art aircraft will service the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) route, offering more direct flights and seats than any other airline with 17 flights per week and an additional 87,360 seats annually from YVR.“Vancouver was the airline’s first destination in North America with our then state-of-the-art Boeing 747-200 aircraft being the first airline to fly nonstop between YVR and Hong Kong, so it is fitting that nearly 34 years later, we are the first airline to debut the industry’s newest aircraft, the exciting Airbus A350-900 in North America,” said Philippe Lacamp, Cathay Pacific Senior Vice President, Americas.More news:  Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesThe new Airbus A350-900 is the quietest among the aircraft types in its class and is 25% more fuel-efficient. It features a refreshed Business Class cabin and new Premium Economy and Economy Class seats that offer more space and comfort, plus panoramic windows and LED mood lighting. In an eco-friendly move, cabin carpets and passengers’ blankets are made from recycled plastic and nylon, including plastic bottles and salvaged fishing nets that are otherwise a hazard for marine life.Craig Richmond, President and CEO of the Vancouver Airport Authority, said he’s thrilled to welcome the first Canadian arrival of the Airbus A350-900. “It is exciting to see the continued growth of this route and opportunities that stem from it as YVR works towards building a world class sustainable gateway between Asia and the Americas.”The three additional flights per week is expected to generate approximately 163 additional jobs in British Columbia, both at the airport and in the tourism industry, $5.6 million in wages, $1.6 million in taxes, and $8.6 million in Gross Domestic Product. << Previous PostNext Post >> Thursday, March 30, 2017 last_img read more

Rep Alexander commends House on achievements in first six months

first_img24Jul Rep. Alexander commends House on achievements in first six months Alexander also serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure, Local Government and Education Reform committees. ##### Legislator eager to continue improving life for Michiganderscenter_img State Rep. Julie Alexander today said the House of Representatives has made significant progress on legislative goals established in the Action Plan, which was introduced in February.Alexander, of Hanover, said the Legislature has made great strides in areas important to people in Jackson County. That includes a legislative package approved unanimously by the House to subject the governor, lieutenant governor and Legislature to open government requirements.“Michigan is only one of two states that shield the executive and legislative branches from open records laws,” Alexander said. “We passed landmark legislation that subjects the executive branch to the Freedom of Information Act and creates transparency requirements for the Legislature under the Legislative Open Records Act. People deserve to know how government is using the tax dollars entrusted to us, and these bills achieve that.”Alexander, who serves as vice chair of the House Agriculture Committee, said the House is making agriculture a priority as well.“We have passed legislation that reduces needless regulations that hinder farmers from being successful,” Alexander said. “We have also passed tax reforms, protecting hard-working agriculture families from unfair taxation.”Alexander also noted the House has been laser focused on passing skilled trades training measures that enable young adults to follow an educational path to career and technical jobs.“These are high-paying jobs that are in demand across the state,” Alexander said. “Limiting students to college preparatory classes in high school is a short-sighted approach. We are working to match skill sets to available jobs, and not everyone is cut out for a college education.Other accomplishments by the House during the first six months of the current session include:A 2017-18 budget that provides record funding for Michigan’s crumbling roads and bridges. In addition, legislation also has been approved to strengthen warranties so repaired roadways last longer. The budget includes $35 million for the Michigan Infrastructure Fund to be used to address the state’s water, transportation, energy and communications infrastructure.Governing courageously by forcing state government to live within its means. Just like families in Michigan, we have tightened our belt and produced a leaner budget that makes the best use of the money taxpayers entrust to the Legislature.Thriving through freedom by lessening government regulations to help improve people’s lives. Many of the needless or outdated regulations that present a roadblock to success and economic growth have been eliminated by the Legislature.An increase in revenue sharing for local communities including cities, villages and townships, totaling over $6 million. This will allow continued and effective police, fire and medical services locally. Categories: Alexander News,Newslast_img read more
