first_imgMajella on The Late Late Show – donegaldaily.comMAJELLA O’Donnell has spoken of her battle with cancer – and told other people getting the illness: “You can fight back.”The brave wife of singer Daniel also choked back tears on the Late Late Show on RTE1 as she spoke of how she fought cancer as her father died.And she also revealed that she had told Daniel to continue his work because she wanted him to do it – even though he wanted to stay with her. Majella was speaking to Ryan Tubridy just days after having a double mastectomy.“It’s not very nice but it’s doable,” she said of her battle with cancer.“When you hear the word ‘cancer’ it doesn’t mean it’s the end. I’m here now seven months later and I’m cured.”She revealed that Daniel is set to quit the music industry for at least 18 months so that the couple can spend time together. Majella said it had been “a huge decision for him” and went on: “We might do a  long cruise – it is going to be amazing, not thinking about ticket sales, or CDs or the next concert.”She spoke lovingly of the Kincasslagh man saying he had “cemented himself as my soulmate” over the past year.And she said she wanted to make it clear that it was her decision that Daniel continued his UK tour while she continued chemotherapy.“Even some of my friends were saying that was wrong but I said ‘you don’t understand’ because this was my decision. You don’t understand that this is what I want.“It did look bad on him and if it was down to him he’d have been there but that is not what I wanted. I want him now that I’m well again.” Majella said Daniel’s career break would be fun.She also discussed getting her hair shaved off on the Late Late Show last year – with Ryan admitting that even RTE had doubts about doing it.“It could could have backfired,” admitted Majella.“Maybe people wouldn’t like it.” However it had worked – and €600,000 had been raised for the Irish Cancer Society.And Majella revealed that an incredible 623,000 people had read a ‘thank you’ comment she had left on Daniel’s Facebook page on Tuesday.She finished her interview by speaking into the camera to warn people about cancer.“Get to know your body, get to know changes – men and women – it doesn’t mean it is an absolute catastrophe – don’t disregard it, go and check it out. The earlier you find it the better it is. I’m here now and I’m cured,” she said.MAJELLA: “WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD ‘CANCER’ IT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S THE END” was last modified: February 22nd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:canccerdaniel o’donnellLate Late ShowMajellaO’Donnelllast_img read more

Giants win streak hits seven with wild walk-off after Mets drop a can of corn

Ant Pedometer Discovered

first_imgAnts have dumbfounded scientists again.  It appears they count their steps when they walk, and keep track how far they have gone.  Reporting in Science,1 a trio of German and Swiss scientists tested desert ants by making some walk on specially-designed stilts and others walk on stumps of cut-off legs.  The first overshot their target, and the second group undershot it by the amount proportional to the change in leg length.    Another amazing fact is that the ants can use their mental pedometers to reckon how far they are from home, then take a direct route back.  That would seem to require mathematical skill beyond just counting steps.  Indeed it does; not only do the ants have a sophisticated onboard navigation system, but also celestial navigation equipment.  The team explained,Foraging Saharan desert ants, Cataglyphis fortis, use a mode of dead reckoning known as path integration to monitor their current position relative to the nest and to find their way home.  This enables them to return on a direct route, rather than retracing the tortuous outbound journey performed when searching for food items in their flat desert habitat, which is often completely devoid of landmarks.  The path integrator requires two kinds of input information: about directions steered, as obtained via the ant’s celestial compass, and about distance traveled, as gauged by the ant’s odometer.See also Live Science, National Geographic and New Scientist.  The team also found that the ants could learn to adapt to their new circumstances.  Regarding the surgical procedures used in the experiment, the scientists were quick to explain that ants don’t feel pain at having their legs amputated.1Wittlinger, Wehner and Wolf, “The Ant Odometer: Stepping on Stilts and Stumps,” Science, 30 June 2006: Vol. 312. no. 5782, pp. 1965 – 1967, DOI: 10.1126/science.1126912.There was no mention of evolution in this paper.  Only in evolutionary theory would someone attempt to say, with a straight face, that celestial compasses, path integrators and odometers are the result of a blind process lacking a navigation target.    This discovery is all the more reason to get the kids an Uncle Milton’s Ant Farm (03/16/2006).  It might stimulate a good science project, too.  If stilts, why not pogo sticks?  or how about a treadmill or moving sidewalk?  or a rotating table?  Don’t let students be cruel to the little puzzle-solvers, but use it as an opportunity to reverse-engineer the amazing GPS software embedded in their tiny heads (not referring to the students’ heads, of course, but to those of the ants).(Visited 37 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Google Giving Away eReaders at Google Books – What Took So Long?

first_imgmarshall kirkpatrick Google announced today that it is running a contest for the next ten days where visitors to the controversial and under-loved Google Books site can win a Sony Reader eBook device. Literature-related trivia will now be hunted for using the site’s new search inside the book feature and people who find the right answers will be entered into a drawing to win a Sony Reader device.The contest is the kind of traditional marketing that more web applications could benefit from and will no doubt introduce many new people to the features of the service. Our question, though, is this: why not do this every day of the year? At under $300 retail price (and you know Google could get a deal) it would cost around $100k to give one away every day. How much do you think the Google Books team has spent on legal defense in the last year? Millions of dollars, we’re sure. Tags:#news#web Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Our guess is, in as much as people know anything about Google Books, it’s that the service is in a protracted legal battle with the publishers of the books it’s indexing. We’d guess almost no one knows about the service’s new magazine search or the excellent mobile version of the site.Last month we reported that Google plans to go into the eBook sales business by allowing vendors to sell eBook copies through Google Books.Why not give away a free reader every day and bring all the people to the site that a promotion like that surely would? Heck, give away three every day. At this point the project has to be bleeding money and yet how often do you hear people talk about it? If eBooks are really a big part of the future, a few hundred thousand dollars spent by Google to promote their offering in this market sure would be money well spent.

Harbhajan slaps legal notice on Mallya’s United Breweries

first_imgIndian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Monday slapped a legal notice on Vijay Mallya’s United Breweries for allegedly making a spoof on him in a commercial for McDowell’s No. 1 Platinum soda.The commercial is allegedly a spoof on an advertisement for Seagram’s Royal Stag soda that features Harbhajan.The Royal Stag advertisement shows Harbhajan opting to not work in his father’s ball-bearing factory and instead focusing on cricket. In the end, he asks the viewer if he has “Made it large” in life.Taking a dig at the commercial and Royal Stag’s ‘Make it large’ tagline, the McDowell’s commercial shows a Bhajji lookalike making ball bearings the size of gym balls at his father’s factory and asking if he has “made it large”. He gets slapped by his father for being incompetent.The advertisement then shows India skippper MS Dhoni saying, “Zindagi main kuch karna hai to large chodo, kuch alag karo yaar.”last_img read more

Several fail BCCI test for online scores

first_imgDespite its continuous efforts to improve the standard of domestic cricket, the Indian cricket Board doesn’t seem to be getting the right personnel for the job. This is evident from a large number of aspirants who failed the examination for online scores.As many as 16 of the 42 candidates flunked the examination held recently. In terms of percentage, it translates into a scary 38.09 failed candidates. The online scorers were required to score at least 80 per cent marks, or 120 out of a maximum of 150, were declared successful.This news comes on the heels of a similar disappointing outcome of the curators’ certification examination held in July in Mohali. In that examination, 14 out of 31 participants – or 45.16 per cent – had flunked, causing concern, if not alarm, for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).A scorer who was declared successful, interestingly, said that the examination was not too tough. “Any exam, as such, is tough, for that matter. All the candidates who were invited by the BCCI for the examination were imparted proper coaching in Nagpur before the test. A top scorer from Mumbai took the classes,” the scorer told Mail Today.The BCCI wants at least three good online scorers in each of its 30 associations so that they could meet the requirement at all home matches of the various Board’s tournaments, seniors as well as juniors. Some associations, particularly in the east zone, don’t have many scorers who fit the bill.”The main purpose of the BCCI to conduct the examination was to fill the vacancies in the east zone, where there has been a dearth of online scorers. Several states in that zone don’t have either good online scorers or have too few,” the scorer pointed.advertisementBCCI has increased the remuneration of manual and online scorers as well as video analysts.But the BCCI would be disappointed that the end result was not to what it would have liked to see.For some reason, only 12 scorers from east zone turned up. All three candidates from Jharkhand passed the examination while Tripura had a mixed bag, as two of its candidates were successful and two failed. Assam was the worst affected as three of the four candidates failed (all names are being withheld to protect identities) and the only from Orissa flunked.A source, however, said that the failed candidates would get another opportunity to take the examination.Mumbai was the most successful association as four of its candidates – including three women – passed while three failed.The BCCI might not have got the desired results, but it is doing its bit to encourage both manual and online scorers, besides the video analysts, by increasing their remuneration from this season. This hike is for both domestic as well as international matches.The manual and online scorers till last year used to receive Rs 3,000 per day for a domestic match and now they are getting Rs 5,000. Their dearness allowance too has been increased from Rs 500 to Rs 750. Video analysts are now receiving Rs 7,500 instead of Rs 5,000.For outstation matches, manual and online scorers as well as the video analyst will get Rs 1,000 extra. And for internationals matches that will be played at home, a scorer will now get Rs 10,000 per day instead of Rs 7,500. There is no dearness allowance for international matches.last_img read more

ESPN’s Paul Finebaum Called Out A Top Head Coach’s Wife

first_imgPaul Finebaum explains why Clemson will lose.ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum has gotten into a war of words with the wife of one of college football’s top head coaches.Urban Meyer’s wife, Shelley Meyer, called out Finebaum on social media last week, saying that she never watches him or ESPN.“Ummmm, newsflash? Or Maybe not. He gets NONE OF MY ATTENTION. Should get no one else’s either. I don’t listen or watch him or his network anymore,” she wrote in a since-deleted tweet.Finebaum was asked about this on the air earlier this week. He didn’t hold back in response.“Deleting seems to run in the Meyer family,” Finebaum said. “Remember Urban Meyer deleted texts [about a former assistant accused of domestic violence]; now Shelley Meyer — I don’t believe in deleting the tweet. You say something, everybody already knows it, it’s been disseminated across the country.“I don’t know what to say to her. I know her fairly well. She’s a nice woman. I think she has bigger problems right now dealing with whatever Urban is going through than slapping back at me.”ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith spoke up, too.“With all due respect to the lovely Mrs. Meyer, when your husband left his coaching job [at Florida], where did he come to work? To the very network you said you no longer want to watch,” Smith said. “You didn’t have a problem with ESPN then. So why do you have a problem now? Because something happened at the Ohio State that every network discussed and somehow we’re the problem?“I respectfully disagree.”Finebaum has been quite critical of Meyer this season, crushing him for the Zach Smith controversy and suggesting that he’ll be leaving Ohio State at the end of the 2018 season.“This is observational. I’m watching him. Don’t forget the month of August, one of his worst months ever. I still feel like it’s a bad marriage. We’re hearing him talk about his health. Most coaches don’t talk about their health unless it’s a very serious situation. I think this is a precursor to him walking away at the end of the season much like he did six or seven years ago at the University of Florida.“The signs are there.”Meyer, meanwhile, has maintained that he wants to coach at Ohio State and plans on leading the Buckeyes in 2019.Ohio State is back on the field today, taking on Nebraska at noon E.T. The game will be on FOX.last_img read more
