Daniels will try to play for Broncos today

first_imgAfter injuring his toe against Cal State Dominguez Hills Feb. 24, Daniels had little physical activity last week and didn’t play in a win over Cal State Los Angeles and a loss to Cal State Bakersfield last weekend. He has been able to test it out this week. “He’s going to give it a shot,” Cal Poly coach Greg Kamansky said. “Obviously, he’ll be very limited.” Kamansky said he wasn’t planning on having Daniels start, and his playing time would be dependent on how much pain he feels. Daniels has been a key part of the Broncos’ success this season. He is third on the team with 11.5 points per game, and tied for second in rebounding with 4.7. Daniels also leads the team in field goal percentage. Starting junior center Kaelen Daniels, out last weekend after jamming his toe, will try to play today in the opener of the NCAA Division II West Regional at Humboldt State’s East Gym. Third-seeded Cal Poly (20-7) plays sixth-seeded Seattle (19-8) in the first quarterfinal today at noon. A win would advance the Broncos to Saturday’s 5 p.m. regional semifinal against either second-seeded Cal State San Bernardino or seventh-seeded BYU-Hawaii. The question for the Cal Poly Pomona men’s basketball team this week is: Will he or won’t he? And the answer is, he’ll try. center_img “I don’t want to think we have to have him, but he’s always a good asset to have,” senior guard Billy Hofman said earlier in the week. In Daniels’ absence last week, junior Kevin Neveu started in his place and both he and sophomore Kyle Krause played more minutes. Neveu is averaging 5.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 14.5 minutes, while Krause is averaging 1.8 points, 0.9 rebounds and 7.4 minutes. Last weekend, they both had a tendency to pick up fouls. Neveu averaged 5.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 fouls in 18.5 minutes in the two games, while Krause’s numbers were 4.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.5 fouls in 16.0 minutes. “Kevin and Kyle are very capable. They just have to go out and do it,” Kamansky said. Cal Poly is led by first-team all California Collegiate Athletic Association players senior Dion Cook (17.9 ppg, 4.1 rpg) and sophomore Larry Gordon (11.7 ppg, 7.4 rpg). The Broncos also have CCAA freshman of the year Donnelle Booker (5.8 ppg, 4.7 rpg). Cook is capable of carrying a team. He scored 31 of his career-high 39 points in the second half of a 70-69 overtime victory against Cal State Dominguez Hills Feb. 24. Cal Poly hasn’t played Seattle since losing to the Redhawks in the second game of the 2005-06 season, 79-72 at Seattle. This is the Broncos’ fourth postseason trip in the last five years and Seattle’s first as a Division II school. Seattle, which won the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, has won seven straight games. Despite winning the conference, Seattle had no first-team all-conference players. Starting senior guards Ryan Webb (10.3 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 6.6 apg) and Sam Kirby (13.3 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 2.1 apg) both made the second team. Seattle does have more size than Cal Poly. Senior David White, a GNAC honorable mention, is 6-foot-11, and averages 9.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game. Cal Poly has no player taller than the 6-8 Krause. “They’ve got a 6-11 guy, and their guards Kirby and Webb are very good,” Kamansky said. “We will have to play very well to win this game.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It needs 30 signatures but Sinn Fein have not yet

It needs 30 signatures but Sinn Fein have not yet said whether it will support the motion.Mr Eastwood was speaking following claims made to Stephen Nolan on BBC 1 NI interview with former DUP Enterprise Minister Jonathan Bell on Thursday night.He claimed the First Minister stopped him from closing down the RHI scheme as it was becoming too costly.The DUP MLA said his party boss “ordered him” to keep the scheme open for a further two weeksAnd he accused DUP Special Advisers (SPADs) of interfering with a paper trail to keep his party leader’s name out of the RHI scandal ShareTweet The Foyle MLA said “confidence was being drained” from the political institutions in Northern Ireland.“The only way we can find out the truth now is if all the documents that have been referred to are put into the public domain,” he said.The party is to put before the Assembly on Monday a ‘Motion of No Confidence’ in the First Minister. But the First Minister and the SPADs have denied Mr Bell’s claims.Mr Bell now faces an internal disciplinary inquiry by DUP officers for breaching rules in speaking to the Nolan show over the row without consulting the party. SDLP leader Colum Eastwood says First Minister Arlene Foster should “step aside for a period” while claims around the botched RHI energy scheme are investigated.

New procedure allows leg length to be precisely adjusted during hip replacement

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Dec 3 2018After a patient has been fitted with an artificial hip joint, sometimes the leg on that side ends up longer or shorter than before. This can lead to problems in the spinal column. A newly developed procedure enables leg length to be precisely adjusted during hip replacement surgery.Today hip replacement is a routine surgical procedure. Some 210,000 hip prostheses are implanted every year in Germany. A frequent complication consists of the situation that, after the operation, the patient’s leg is not the same length as it was before. Normally, a leg length discrepancy of less than one centimeter is well tolerated. Any more, and the patient will most likely have to wear orthopaedical shoe lifts to compensate for postural imbalance and prevent back pain.Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU, together with partners in science and industry, has found a solution to this problem. “It consists of three main components: an optical system to measure leg length, a modular implant design, and a pre-op planning software tool,” says Dr. Ronny Grunert from the institute’s Department for Medical Engineering.The leg length is measured in the operating room just prior to surgery. First, a plastic box with optical markers on its surface is attached to the patient’s tibia. Holding the limb in extension, the surgeon then takes the leg by the heel and lifts it upward. During this maneuver, a 3D camera is used to record the circular motion described by the optical markers on the patient’s shin. In essence, it’s like using a mathematical compass to draw circles around a point, which in this case is the hip joint around which the leg rotates. In this analogy, the optical markers correspond to the tip of the pencil. After provisionally inserting the implant, a second measurement is carried out. The software program compares the two rotational measurements to verify that the leg length remains the same before and after the intervention. If a difference is detected, the length inequality must be corrected.Free choice of femoral stem and acetabular cupRelated StoriesPorvair Sciences develops new fluid collection vent for surgical suction cannistersBariatric surgery should be offered to all patients who would benefitCommon cold virus strain could be a breakthrough in bladder cancer treatment”Together with our partners, we have developed a modular concept that allows the size and position of the artificial hip joint to be optimized for each patient during surgery,” explains Grunert. This modular approach is more flexible than having to choose between prefabricated implants in a limited range of sizes. It allows the surgeon to select the best-fitting combination of femoral stem and acetabular cup. The procedure consists of implanting the femoral stem and connecting it with the acetabular cup by means of a sliding screw. By adjusting the position of the screw, it is possible to precisely adjust the leg length according to the pre-op measurement. If necessary, a different acetabular cup can be selected.The third component of the new procedure, the pre-op planning software, helps the physician to select the most suitable prosthetic joint. Dr. Torsten Prietzel, Medical Director of the Endoprosthetics Network and Chief Surgeon at the Helios Clinic in Blankenhain, is already using the software on a trial basis. The modular implants and the system for measuring leg length are also still in the test phase. Ronny Grunert estimates that all three components of the system will be ready for clinical use in two years’ time.

Study finds sex differences in inflammationinduced anhedonia

first_imgOur study is the first to show that there are sex differences in neural sensitivity to reward in response to inflammation, which has important implications. This may suggest one reason women experience depression at a far greater rate than men, particularly for the kinds of depression that may be inflammatory in nature.”Naomi Eisenberger, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles, senior author Related StoriesUnhealthy gut microbiome may make breast cancers more aggressive finds studyCircadian rhythm influences immune responses across a range of diseasesResearchers one step closer to unmasking the cause of familial MSIn the study, healthy men and women received a substance to increase inflammation. Dr. Eisenberger and colleagues measured activity in the reward region of the brain, the ventral striatum, while the participants played a game to receive a monetary reward. Women with greater inflammatory responses showed less brain response in anticipation of potential rewards, but the relationship was not present in men.”This suggests that women with chronic inflammatory disorders may be particularly vulnerable to developing depression through decreases in sensitivity to reward. Clinicians who treat female patients with inflammatory disorders may want to pay close attention to these patients for possible onset of depressive symptoms,” said first author Mona Moieni, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Eisenberger. This study highlights the important gender differences that exist in the human brain and suggests a mechanism that might help explain the greater prevalence of depression in women compared to men.”Cameron Carter, MD, Editor of Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Because the increased inflammation had no effect on how men’s brains responded to reward, inflammation-induced anhedonia may be an important contributor to the increased rates of depression in women.Source:ElsevierJournal reference:Eisenberger, N. et al.

Reduced activity in the brain’s reward center is the signature of anhedonia, a core feature of depression that reflects a loss of enjoyment in things or activities. Women are two-to-three times more likely to be diagnosed with depression, and the new findings pinpoint a key difference in men and women that could contribute to the lopsided rates of the disorder.last_img read more
