Rebel: Amanaki Mafi may succumb to the new foreign players rules in Australia (Getty Images) Rugby Australia To Phase Out Foreigners from Super Rugby TeamsAfter the axing of the Western Force from Super Rugby, Rugby Australia are looking to limit the influence of foreign players on the four Super Rugby sides that still remain – the Brumbies, Melbourne Rebels, Reds, and Waratahs.After the tournament expanded in 2006 and 2011, Australian sides looked to foreign players to fill the void and be competitive, however the reduction back to four sides has changed Rugby Australia’s thinking.Chief among them is keeping Wallaby eligible players, and relying on foreign players less.Ben Whitaker, Rugby Australia’s high-performance manager said: “Going to four teams means we will work on the foreign talent eligibility because we feel that there’s limited (contracts available).“We don’t think that there’s as much need to bring in talent (from overseas) that can play and potentially influence whether you win Super or not because we can back our talent in four teams to do that.”The governing body will not rule out foreign players entirely, which will mean players Amanaki Mafi will breathe a sigh of relief, but the policy will put more preference on Australian players, or players who would be willing to become eligible to play for Australia. Time will tell if these measures will have any noticeable effect on Australian and French rugby.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Foreign players to begin to be phased out of Super Rugby sides by Rugby Australia Debut: Tongan born Taniela Tupou made his debut for Australia last year (Getty Images)Two such examples are Tonga-born Taniela Tupou, and Fijian Isi Naisarani who are part of Michael Cheika’s plans for the World Cup.Additionally, the Top 14 will use the same kind of tactic, with French Rugby Federation President Bernard Laporte looking to limit the foreign influence in Top 14 sides.Per Fox Sports: “Incredibly, 257 of 596 players in the Top 14 (43.12 per cent) are foreigners and clubs are currently only required to have 14 locals in their match day squads.“That number will rise to 15 next year and 16 in 2020 with Laporte eventually wanting to cut the number of foreigners in match day squads to just five.”

Such a birth would mark the beginning of a multi–planet civilization for the human species.For the first half-century of the Space Age, only governments launched satellites and people into Earth orbit. No longer. Hundreds of private space companies are building a new industry that already has US$300 billion in annual revenue.I’m a professor of astronomy who has written a book and a number of articles about humans’ future in space. Today, all activity in space is tethered to the Earth. But I predict that in around 30 years people will start living in space – and soon after, the first off-Earth baby will be born.China recently sent both an orbiter and rover to Mars using the Tianwen-1 rocket, seen here. China News Service/WikimediaCommons, CC BYThe players in spaceSpace started as a duopoly as the United States and the Soviet Union vied for supremacy in a geopolitical contest with loud military overtones. But while NASA achieved the Moon landings in 1969, its budget has since shrunk by a factor of three. Russia is no longer an economic superpower, and its presence in space is a pale shadow of the program that launched the first satellite and the first person into orbit.The new kid on the block is China. After a late start, the Chinese space program is surging, fueled by a budget that has recently grown faster than their economy. China is building a space station, the country has landed probes on the Moon and Mars, and it is planning a Moon base. On its current trajectory, China will soon be the dominant space power.Elon Musk plans to use the SpaceX Starship, seen here, to send people first to the Moon and then to Mars. Jaredkrahn/WikimediaCommons, CC BY-SABut the most exciting progress is being made by private space companies that are marketing space for tourism and recreation. Elon Musk’s goal for SpaceX is to carry 100 people at a time to the Moon, Mars and beyond, although in public presentations he is coy about giving a timeline. Jeff Bezos’ company, Blue Origins, also aims to colonize the solar system. Such grandiose plans have skeptics, but remember that these are the two richest people in the world.Governments will continue to launch rockets, but it would be safe to say that the future of private space flight arrived in 2016 when, for the first time, commercial launches outnumbered launches by all the world’s countries combined.Living on the Moon or MarsFor a spacecraft, the trip to Mars is about 1,000 times farther than a trip to the Moon, so the Moon will be humanity’s first home away from home.China is partnering with Russia to build a long-term facility at the Moon’s South Pole sometime between 2036 and 2045. NASA plans to put “boots on the Moon” in 2024 and establish a a permanent settlement called the Artemis Base Camp within another decade. As part of the Artemis mission, NASA is also planning to launch a lunar space station in 2024 called Gateway. NASA is teaming up with SpaceX for this and future lunar projects, and the lunar station will make it easier for SpaceX to resupply the future lunar colony.After the Moon comes Mars, and the collaboration between SpaceX and NASA is accelerating the timeline for getting there. NASA’s plans are purposeful, but the organization hasn’t given a timeline. Elon Musk, on the other hand, has loudly proclaimed that he intends to have a colony on Mars by 2050. Humanity’s attempt to colonize the Moon will give us a good sense of the challenges we might face on Mars.Large space stations with hotels and living space for private citizens will likely be the first option for most people to get to space. Cokada/WikimediaCommonsSex and babies in spaceFor a civilization to be really free from Earth, the population needs to grow, and that means babies. Living on the Moon or Mars will be arduous and stressful, so the first inhabitants will probably spend only a few years there at a time and are unlikely to start a family.But once people do take up permanent residency off-Earth, there are still many unknowns. First, little research has been done on the biology of pregnancy and reproductive health in a space or low-gravity environment like the Moon or Mars. It’s possible there will be unexpected hazards to the fetus or mother. Second, babies are fragile, and raising them is not easy. The infrastructure of these bases would have to be sophisticated to make some version of normal family life possible, a process that will take decades.With these uncertainties in mind, it seems likely that the first off-Earth baby will be born much closer to home. A Dutch startup called SpaceLife Origin wants to send a heavily pregnant woman 250 miles up just long enough to give birth. They talk a good story, but the legal, medical and ethical obstacles are formidable. Another company, called Orbital Assembly Corporation, plans to open a luxury hotel in orbit in 2027 called the Voyager Station. Current plans show that it would hold 280 guests and 112 crew members, with its spinning-wheel design providing artificial gravity. But the breathless news reports omit any discussion of the difficulty and cost of such a project.However, on April 12, 2021, NASA announced that it is considering allowing a reality TV show to send a civilian to the International Space Station and film them for 10 days. It’s plausible that this idea could be extended, with a wealthy couple booking a long-term stay for the entire process from conception to birth in orbit.At the moment, there’s no evidence anyone has had sex in space. But with about 600 people having been in Earth orbit – including one NASA couple who kept their marriage a secret – one space historian was able to gather plenty of Space Age salacious moments.My guess is that sometime around 2040, a unique individual will be born. They may carry the citizenship of their parents, or they may be born in a facility operated by a corporation and end up stateless. But I prefer to think of this future person as the first true citizen of the galaxy.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

The government must end its policy of intimidation and keep the promises it has made with regard to this journalist.” Addressing the Chinese Communist Party in the video, Chen says: “You are mistaken if you think you will gain by openly breaking your promise.” Gao’s lawyer, Shang Baojun, reported in February that, contrary to an earlier undertaking, the authorities were refusing to allow Gao to leave China and were refusing to give her the money she needs for medical care. Gao suffers from lymphadenopathy, a swelling of the lymph nodes resulting from an infection, inflammation or possibly cancer. While in prison, she also had repeated cardiac problems, which date back to her first spell in prison in 1989.China is ranked 176th out of 180 counties in RSF’s 2015 World Press Freedom Index.

In this next phase, Veterans will be actively monitored so care can be administered in near real-time to avoid or lower the chance of re-hospitalization, allowing the VA to improve patient care while driving down costs. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210209005282/en/ PhysIQ, Inc. and the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs have advanced their collaboration to address heart failure care to an interventional trial phase. (Graphic: Business Wire) In early 2020, physIQ and the VA shared the results of a breakthrough study aimed at validating the ability to detect the onset of heart failure exacerbation using wearable sensors and machine learning-based personalized physiology analytics. Published in Circulation – Heart Failure, a journal of the American Heart Association, the observational phase of the LINK-HF study was designed to assess the ability to predict rehospitalization due to heart failure exacerbation using sophisticated analytics applied to continuous wearable sensor data. This study demonstrated a 7-10-day early warning timeframe, which showed promise to reduce hospitalization and improve quality of life of patients with heart failure. “This new interventional study will provide the real life experience needed to demonstrate how this cutting-edge technology can be leveraged to provide clinicians with more proactive information to manage at risk patients, such as those with heart failure, to keep them out of the hospital. Utilizing this type of innovative solution will enable VA to provide the best possible care to Veterans at the highest value,” says Dr. Stephen L. Ondra, former Senior Advisor for Health Affairs to the VA Secretary under President Obama. “The LINK-HF study demonstrated the potential to detect clinical changes early enough in the process to intervene before a patient became more seriously ill. This study will put the technology to the test in clinical practice, and in doing so, has the potential to improve care and the quality of life of patients with heart failure and eventually other high risk medical conditions.” Heart failure patients are most vulnerable in the weeks following a recent hospitalization, and often find themselves readmitted. In this multi-site interventional study, patients at discharge will be provided a set of disposable adhesive biosensor patches for the chest, and a smartphone to upload their data to the pinpointIQ TM platform. Within the platform, sophisticated FDA-cleared artificial intelligence-powered algorithms learn the dynamic digital signature of each patient’s individual vital sign behavior and detect changes, even subtly. Such changes in vital signs can be an early warning of a deteriorating physiological condition reflecting exacerbation of the underlying disease. In the study, patients will be contacted in the event that the analytics suggest a need for early intervention to avoid an exacerbation before it becomes an acute care emergency. PhysIQ’s innovative solution addresses a critical, unmet need for continuous remote monitoring of patient’s vital signs which could mitigate the cost and risk of invasive heart failure hemodynamic monitoring devices that have shown effectiveness in the last decade. “PhysIQ’s technology is allowing doctors and nurses to be proactive, as opposed to reactive, in the management of chronic illnesses, which could result in preventing any further deterioration,” said Gary Conkright, CEO of physIQ. “As we continue to push the boundaries of this emerging technology, we are thankful for a partner like the VA and are proud for the opportunity to serve those that have served us.” In the U.S., hospitalizations for heart failure (HF) represent 80% of costs attributed to HF care. HF is the most common hospital discharge diagnosis for Veterans. Furthermore, hospitalization for HF is associated with adverse prognosis – the risk of mortality increases more than 4-fold in the first 3 months after discharge. Within the VA system, the importance of decreasing preventable HF hospitalizations has been recognized by The Chronic Heart Failure Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (CHF QUERI), and the 30-day readmission rate is one of the VA’s Strategic Analytics for Improvement and Learning (SAIL) measures. About physIQ PhysIQ is the leader in digital medicine, dedicated to generating unprecedented health insight using continuous wearable biosensor data and advanced analytics. Its enterprise-ready cloud platform continuously collects and processes data from any wearable biosensor using a deep portfolio of FDA-cleared analytics. The company has published one of the most rigorous clinical studies to date in digital medicine and are pioneers in developing, validating, and achieving regulatory approval of Artificial Intelligence-based analytics.

He is believed to be in Spain where he has business connections in Marbella.Clarke is the sole director of nine-year-old company Berkshire Estate Agents Limited.Trading StandardsThe company has ignored orders by TPO to return funds to several clients and has now been reported to both local Trading Standards and the National Trading Standards Estate Agent Team.Berkshire County Council (BCC), which is the local trading standards authority, said it was also aware that the company was no longer a member of a redress scheme and is liable to a £5,000 fine.“We can confirm we are doing everything within our powers to establish the scope of the issue,” a BCC spokesperson told local media.“It is a live investigation and is very complex. We are working with our partners including Thames Valley Police and the Property Ombudsman.”One landlord told the Slough and South Bucks Observer that Clarke had not lodged their tenants’ deposit with an approved scheme or returned the deposit to the tenants, forcing them to reimburse £4,600 from their own funds. Also, the landlord has not been paid compensation that TPO ordered Clarke to pay them.Other landlords in the area have reported that Berkshire Estate Agents has failed to pass on rents or returns deposits.The company’s website shows dozens of properties to rent and over 110 homes for sale and has live listings on OnTheMarket.com.lee clarke National Trading Standards Estate Agency Team Berkshire Estate Agents Limited slough TPO January 13, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
