Video game event fundraises rare diseases

The Buckeyes will challenge Penn State, Virginia, West Virginia, Texas and Georgia in a video game competition set up by Uplifting Athletes Sunday, Feb. 28, in efforts to raise money for rare diseases.Uplifting Athletes is a national nonprofit organization aligning college football with rare diseases and raising them as a national priority through outreach, research education, and advocacy.Scott Shirley is the founder of Uplifting Athletes. He was a student-athlete at PSU. While there, his dad was diagnosed with kidney cancer. His teammates rallied around him and started to raise money and awareness for kidney cancer.Because of the support of his teammates, Shirley founded Uplifting Athletes. Pennsylvania State University was the first chapter of the organization. Uplifting Athletes has gained four more schools since its humble beginnings. There are five university chapters in total: Penn State, OSU, Boston College, Colgate and Maryland.Each chapter has the opportunity to choose a rare disease. Chapters often select a cause that is personal to the team. OSU’s chapter has selected to raise money and awareness for Charcot-Marie-Tooth.CMT is one of the most common inherited neurological disorders, affecting approximately one in 2,500 people in the United States. OSU quarterback Tyrelle Pryor’s father has the disease.CMT is a neurological disorder that causes damage to the peripheral nerves. The damaged nerves carry signals from the brain and spinal cord to muscles and relay sensations. This causes pain to the spinal cord from the rest of the body.Some symptoms of CMT are muscle weakness and wasting, stiffened joints because of abnormal tightening of muscles and associated tissues and some loss of sensation in the feet, the lower legs, the hands and the forearms. CMT can also cause curvature of the spine, also known as scoliosis.The unique part of this organization is that OSU’s chapter network is run by current football student-athletes. These athletes are provided with an opportunity to gain practical job skills while learning how to leverage their assets and abilities to make a positive and lasting impact. Students can make donations to Uplifting Athletes by coming to the event. OSU’s defensive back Donnie Evege is the chairman of this event. It will be held at Damon’s restaurant at 3025 Olentangy River Rd. from 3 to 6 p.m. Admission is $5 in advance and $10 at the door.Tickets for the event can be purchased online Donation for CMT can also be made by going to the Web site and clicking on the OSU chapter. read more

Germany boss rules out Ozil comeback

10 Things To Know Before The Astros Face The Dodgers In The

first_img Listen 00:00 /12:49 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharecenter_img Eric Christian Smith/AP PhotoJose Altuve holds the American League championship trophy after Game 7 of the ALCS against the New York Yankees Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017. The Astros are in Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers Tuesday night (Oct. 24) in Game 1 of the World Series after knocking off the Yankees in Game 7 of the ALCS on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park.The Astros are the first team to win a pennant in both leagues, having won the National League crown in 2005 before being swept by the White Sox in the Fall Classic. But, this time, fans are hoping for different results.Houston Matters had Jeff Balke give us a preview of the World Series. He writes for Houston Press and Houstonia Magazine.TEN THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE ASTROS-DODGERS WORLD SERIES:Two best teams: This is the first time since 1970 that two teams with 100 wins or more will meet in the World Series. Slight edge on the mound: When it comes to pitching, Jeff Balke says the Dodgers have a slight advantage. Their starters are pretty even, but L.A.’s bullpen is definitely better, he says.Bullpen will be key: The Dodgers’ bullpen has been great in the postseason so far. Whether or not the Astros’ bats can get to that bullpen will play a big role in determining who wins this series.Potent bats: Balke says the Astros are a better team offensively in almost every category — at least when they’re playing their game. We’ll see how they fare against elite playoff pitching from the likes of Clayton Kershaw.Pitchers at the plate: For games in Los Angeles, the designated hitter will not be in effect. So Houston pitchers will have to bat — some of them for the first time in their careers — and that could break up the Astros’ normally potent lineup. But the good news is the Dodgers’ pitchers will have to hit too.Defensive edge: The Astros flashed some leather throughout the series, and, while Balke thinks both teams have great defense, the Astros have a slight edge, he says.Bats under wraps: Another major question will be whether the Astros can keep down some of the powerful bats near the top of the Dodgers’ lineup, such as Yasiel Puig and Justin Turner.All lined up: Despite needing seven tough games to knock off the Yankees, the Astros enter the series healthy and with their starting rotation basically normal. Dallas Keuchel will start Game 1 and Justin Verlander will start Game 2. Balke thinks Charlie Morton, one of the heroes of Game 7 of the ALCS, will likely get the start in Game 3.Unfamiliar territory: Jeff says, as a Houston sports fan, he’s not used to coming into a season (or a postseason) where people expected the Houston team to win — or at least truly have a shot. He says this is the first time since the Rockets’ NBA championships that a Houston team was seen by some as a favorite and has (so far) lived up to that promise.Going the distance: Jeff says this series will be a tightly contested one, and he picks the Astros to win in seven games.

Wide area study shows environmental impact of oil and natural gas drilling

first_img(—A team of researchers with affiliations to several academic institutions in the U.S. has conducted an analysis of the overall impact of oil and natural gas drilling in the U.S. and Canada over a period of twelve years. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team notes that such drilling involves the destruction of vegetation which is not being replaced which in turn is causing a major impact on the environment. © 2015 Oil and natural gas drilling in the U.S. and Canada has generated a lot of press in the past few years, most of it positive, as it has helped increase domestic supplies, thus reducing dependence on foreign oil. But, it has also experienced some criticism, some from people worried about small earthquakes that sometimes result due to fracking. More recently, some Earth scientists have begun to voice their concerns about the environmental impact of all the drilling and excavation that is occurring—as the authors note in this new effort, on average 50,000 new wells have been dug per year since the turn of the century. Their study covers the years 2000 to 2012 and looked at the impact of drilling on an ecosystems’ net primary production (NPP)—a measure of the amount of carbon stored by all the plants in a given ecosystem.To find the change in NPP due to drilling, the researchers looked at satellite images—that allowed them to see where there was vegetation, and then where it had been removed due to drilling over the study period. To find the NPP all they had to do was note the type of vegetation that was impacted and then count up the losses—approximately 10 Tg of biomass which translated to approximately 4.5 Tg of carbon. What they found most concerning was that the vegetation that was being removed, was not replaced after the mining operations concluded (approximately 90 percent of the land was privately owned, thus not subject to federal regulations). Many of the areas where the mining was taking place, the researchers note, was in areas where vegetation struggles to return on its own, which could mean the loss in biomass could have an impact for many years.The researchers point out that at this point, no one really knows what the overall impact of the surge in mining and vegetation reduction will have on a continent-wide basis, but thus far it is easy to see the local impact, less vegetation means less diversity and less wildlife—an impact that does not appear to be taken into consideration by policymakers.

Although similar to past trends (see the graph, this page), the space and infrastructure required for horizontal drilling and high-volume hydraulic fracturing are transforming millions of hectares of the Great Plains into industrialized landscapes, with drilling projected to continue (1, 2). Although this development brings economic benefits (3) and expectations of energy security, policy and regulation give little attention to trade-offs in the form of lost or degraded ecosystem services (4). It is the scale of this transformation that is important, as accumulating land degradation can result in continental impacts that are undetectable when focusing on any single region (5). With the impact of this transformation on natural systems and ecosystem services yet to be quantified at broad extents, decisions are being made with few data at hand (see the graph, this page).
