How the sandfish lizard stays sand-free

first_imgThe sandfish lizard spends most of its life buried in the sand—emerging only to eat, poop, and make love. This lifestyle helps the lizard evade the sweltering desert heat in the Middle East and North Africa, but it causes another problem: inhaling sand particles. Yet when scientists looked into the respiratory tract and lungs of five dead lizards, they couldn’t find a single grain of sand. They couldn’t find an obvious filter in the lizard’s respiratory system, either. Puzzled, the scientists attached sensors to the chests of living lizards and studied their breathing patterns. They found the lizards breathe out with about 60% more intensity inside their sandy burrows than when they are aboveground, which might allow them to expel sand particles from their nostrils. The scientists also estimated a 70% drop in the speed of inhaled air when it hits the widest section of the lizard’s respiratory tract. This likely means that as the air slows down, sand particles fall and get trapped in mucus and cilia that line the section, the scientists report today in the Journal of Experimental Biology. From there, some particles are blown out during exhalation and others are swallowed, after which they pass through the digestive tract and out of the body. At least, that’s the latest theory, supported by the fact that the lizards’ guts were full of sand.last_img read more

Maran: ‘No Cagliari limits’

first_imgRolando Maran saw Cagliari’s “best performance of the season” to beat Atalanta 2-0 and won’t set limits on their ambitions after going joint third. “I think it was our best performance of the season. This was an extremely tough fixture, as Atalanta were on great form, they had scored in every game and we decided the best way of approaching it was to force them to defend,” explained Maran on DAZN. “Both teams were on the attack constantly and that made for a very entertaining match. We ran from start to finish, everyone showed the right spirit and the great thing about these lads is that whoever I choose, they all give their contribution as part of the team unit. “If we rest on our laurels, we’ll never improve. We have to create continual motivation, both as a squad and as individuals. We watched Atalanta this week to prepare and decided we had to get closer to their approach, the way they face everyone with no fear and by playing their football. “We want to go beyond our limits and see what we can do. It’s all about finding the right path to improvement.” Cagliari are now level with Atalanta in fourth place after 11 rounds, so can they follow in those footsteps with European ambitions? “Obviously, there is now more attention on us, as is natural in this position, but it should only be relatively of interest. What matters is taking it one game at a time and not resting on our laurels. We must always strive to do better.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

Cannes Film Festival: After Cinderella, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s black swan look is a downer

first_imgAishwarya Rai Bachchan’s beauty hit the world like a tornado last night when she walked the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. Looking as if Cinderella had just popped out of our story books, the ravishing beauty donned a powder-blue Mario Cinco ballroom gown.And after sprinkling her fairy-tale magic wherever she walked last night, today saw Aishwarya sporting a look that was an extreme contrast.Also Read: Cannes Film Festival: How Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Cinderella story unfoldedAfter the majestic display of her royal aura, all eyes were bound to be on Aish’s look for her second day at Cannes, which did not turn out to be as resplendent as expected.While Aish’s historical ice-blue attire is everywhere for all the right reasons, her first look in a black gown on her second day at Cannes is quite disappointing.The blue-eyed beauty donned a black strapless gown by Ashi Studio, which dulled down the brightness she had spilled at the French Riviera previously.The pleated multi-layered gown was a sombre outfit for Aish to adorn after introducing us to her vibrant looks on the previous day at an event as dynamic as this.Picture courtesy: Instagram/aishwarya_forever_fanPicture couttesy: Instagram/bollywood_24x7_Add to that, a neon-blue eyeliner and orange lipstick, and you’ll want to revisit yesterday–so you can have the pleasure of soaking in the beauty Aishwarya blessed us with on day one. advertisementPicture couttesy: Instagram/aishwariaraibachchan Her latest look in the black gown got things wrong by going too bright on the makeup to balance the dullness of her outfit. The stunning actor failed to mesmerise us, and we’re sorry for saying this out loud.Aishwarya’s 16th year at Cannes commenced on a peppy note with her fluffy, refreshing look in a green Yanina Couture gown, followed by her expression of class in an ivory-white gown leading to the moment where she appeared like Cinderella making us fall head over heels in love with her.Also Read: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s 16th year at Cannes Film Festival starts with a refreshing changeAlso Read: Step aside for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s 2nd, Queen-like look at Cannes Film FestivalWhile the actor has begun the 2nd day in a not-so-great outfit, we are still anxiously waiting for her to grace the red carpet, because red carpets bring out the best in Aish.last_img read more

Teething Problems Push ONE to Red

first_imgzoomImage courtesy: ONE The newly launched container shipping joint venture Ocean Network Express (ONE) posted its first quarterly results for the 2018 fiscal year.The company delivered a net loss of USD 120 million, which ONE ascribed to lower lifting caused by operational teething problems that affected service quality during the operation start-up period, and higher bunker price than originally forecast.The Japanese JV further lowered its forecast for the business performance for the first half of the fiscal year by USD 40 million.“Considering that service quality has already stabilized, overall business is expected to be back to normal situation from the 2Q onwards,” ONE said.For the full fiscal year the company’s net profit forecast remains unchanged at USD 110 million. According to the company this is underpinned by “steady realization of integration synergy ahead of schedule as well as the change in accounting for lease contracts while higher bunker price will have a negative impact.”Commenting on the progress of integration synergies, the container shipping company said the planned synergies worth USD 1.05 billion are emerging steadily with 80 pct of the planned total expected to be achieved in 2018 fiscal year, up from initially set target of 60 pct.The profit from overseas terminal business will be included from the 4th quarter of the fiscal year due to delay in business transfer.last_img read more

Ohio State football recruit shot again 17yearold girl killed

For the second time since April, Ohio State football recruit Jamel Turner has been shot, according to police. This time, Turner’s injuries sustained are much more serious, as Turner was initially listed in critical condition and the 17-year-old girl he was with was killed.The Columbus Dispatch reported Sunday that Turner survived the night and was upgraded to stable condition.Turner, 18, and 17-year-old Tracy Banks were both shot multiple times Saturday morning in Youngstown. Police said Turner was found lying near a stop sign at an intersection outside of the house in which Banks’ body was found.The linebacker/defensive end recruit played at Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy after transferring from Ursuline High School in Youngstown, where he was declared ineligible before his senior year.He was shot twice April 17 while riding as a passenger in a car that contained marijuana and several guns, according to the police report. Turner downplayed the incident on his personal Facebook page, writing that he “just got hit twice is all” and that he “still can play football so its all gravy.”His Facebook page has since been deactivated.OSU coach Jim Tressel issued a statement, saying, “I’m so sad to hear of Jamel’s misfortune. I have not communicated with Jamel, but am certainly praying for him at this time.”Stay tuned to www.thelantern.com for further updates. read more
