Tipp v Cork 7 classic moments from one of hurlings great rivalries

first_imgAS MUNSTER RIVALS Cork and Tipperary prepare to lock horns in what promises to be an epic All-Ireland senior hurling championship semi-final at Croke Park next Sunday, we cast a glance back to classic games of the past.When blood and bandage meets blue and gold, sparks fly and more the same is expected at GAA HQ.Here are seven of the best moments from days gone by:Tipperary 4-13  Cork 4-1131 July, 1960 at Thurles SportsfieldWe’re going back, way back, for our first classic moment. 54 years in fact, when Tipperary edged a titanic tussle in July, 1960. This game has been described as one of the most fiercely contested of all time, as the great Jimmy Doyle showcased his vast array of skills. Thurles native Doyle, who finished a glittering career with six All-Ireland medals, scored 1-8 for Tipp as the Premier County held out a late fightback from the Rebels to claim the spoils. Cork 1-18  Tipperary 1-1812 July, 1987 at Semple StadiumTipp forward Nicky English scored one of those goals that hurlers can only dream about, when he kicked the ball to the net after losing his hurley. That famous score put Tipp ahead by seven points in the second half and seemingly on their way to a first Munster title since 1971. But in a gripping finale, Cork came roaring back to salvage a draw. A famous banner on show at the 1989 All-Ireland final proclaimed that ‘Nicky strikes faster than An Post.’ And he didn’t even need ash in hand to make his mark. Source: Billy Stickland/INPHOTipperary 4-22 Cork 1-2219 July, 1987 at FitzGerald StadiumConventional wisdom suggested that Cork were favourites for the replay after coming from the dead but Tipp had other ideas. They still needed English at his brilliant best to force the game into extra-time, however, before Michael Doyle came off the bench to plunder two goals. Doyle, son of the late, great John, was on fire and Donie O’Connell also netted in extra-time, leaving bloodied captain Richie Stakelum to proclaim that the Famine was over. Tipp were Munster champions for the first time in 16 years.Cork 4-16 Tipperary 2-1415 July, 1990 at Semple Stadium Denis Walsh of Cork strikes Nicky English of Tipperary in 1990. Source: James Meehan/INPHOThe famous ‘donkeys don’t win derbies’ clash saw Cork ram the pre-match taunts of then Tipp manager Michael ‘Babs’ Keating back down his throat. Tipp were All-Ireland champions, having defeated Antrim in the 1989 decider, but their reign was ended by a Cork side that would go on to claim one half of an historic dual double. Mark Foley shot the lights out, bagging 2-7 during the course of a sensational individual display. And as the donkeys sprinted the final furlong to win by eight points, Cork weren’t slow about letting Keating know what they thought of his comments.Cork 4-10 : 2-16 Tipperary7 July, 1991 at Páirc Uí Chaoimh John Fitzgibbon in full flight with Bobby Ryan in pursuit. Source: ©INPHOAnother epic encounter between Tipp and Cork saw Tipp fall four points behind at half-time but a late Pat Fox leveller took the game to a replay. When Tipp and Cork met in 1985, Fox, then a corner back, was scorched by Tomas Mulcahy but the gamekeeper turned poacher in later years, with devastating effect. First half goals by John Fitzgibbon and Ger Fitzgerald had Cork in a strong position but a young John Leahy kept Tipp clinging on to Rebel coattails. And after that man English had a legitimate equaliser disallowed late on, Fox saved Tipp’s bacon.Tipperary 4-19 : 4-15 Cork20 July, 1991 at Semple Stadium Declan Carr celebrates with the trophy. Source: INPHOA tumultuous encounter at Semple Stadium saw Tipperary come from nine points down to win another Munster title. And it was a quite superb Aidan Ryan goal late on that sparked a mass pitch invasion from the Killinan End. Before all that, Cork led by 3-13 to 1-10 with just a quarter of the game remaining. But Tipp kept plugging away and goals from Fox and Declan Carr, captain for the year, hauled them level. Tipp surged into a two-point lead and the scene was set for Ryan to gallop through and crown a magnificent win.

In his first season in charge, Sheedy couldn’t have asked for a better place to claim Tipp’s first championship victory on Cork soil since 1923. The crowd on the Blackrock End was so tight that punters spilled over onto the goalline behind Donal Óg Cusack in the first half. And Eoin Kelly beat Cusack with a stunning goal to haul Tipp back into contention, after they had trailed by seven points with 20 minutes on the watch.No excuses for Cork after 5 week layoff says JBMJBM: Revenge not a driving factor for Cork this yearlast_img read more

New research into 3700yearold tablet reveals Babylonians developed trigonometry before the Greeks

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek astronomer Hipparchus (120 BC) has been regarded as the father of trigonometry. That is until now.New research by the University of New South Wales on a 3,700-year-old tablet from Southern Iraq published in Historia Mathematica, has debunked the belief that Greeks developed trigonometry, instead pointing to the Babylonians as the true masterminds.The tablet – also known as Plimpton 322 – was discovered in the early 1900s by Edgar Banks, an American archaeologist and diplomat, and had experts stumped.But the team at the School of Mathematics and Statistics in the UNSW Faculty of Science believe they have cracked the code, revealing the Babylonians developed trigonometry 1,500 years earlier than the Greeks, using a sophisticated mathematical method that could very well change the way in which we calculate today.“Our research reveals that Plimpton 322 describes the shapes of right-angle triangles using a novel kind of trigonometry based on ratios, not angles and circles,” said Dr Daniel Mansfield.“It is a fascinating mathematical work that demonstrates undoubted genius. The tablet not only contains the world’s oldest trigonometric table; it is also the only completely accurate trigonometric table, because of the very different Babylonian approach to arithmetic and geometry.“This means it has great relevance for our modern world. Babylonian mathematics may have been out of fashion for more than 3,000 years, but it has possible practical applications in surveying, computer graphics and education.”Researchers believe the tablet dates back to 1822-1762 BC from the ancient Sumerian city of Larsa, predating Hipparchus’ table of chords by over 1,000 years. It could have been used for surveying fields or making architectural calculations to build palaces, temples or step pyramids.READ: A young woman’s quest to find her Greek father in AustraliaA trigonometric table helps the user determine two unknown ratios of a right-angled triangle using just one known ratio.On the Plimpton 322, the 15 rows on the tablet describe a sequence of 15 right-angle triangles, steadily decreasing in inclination. While the left-hand edge of the tablet is broken, researchers believe there were originally six columns and that the tablet was meant to be completed with 38 rows.Today’s trigonometry uses a base of 10, while the Babylonian mathematics used 60. With 60 an easier number to divide by three, experts have found calculations to be more accurate.Dr Wildberger says that not only does the discovery open up new possibilities for modern mathematics research, but also for mathematics education.“With Plimpton 322 we see a simpler, more accurate trigonometry that has clear advantages over our own,” he said.“A treasure-trove of Babylonian tablets exists, but only a fraction of them have been studied yet. The mathematical world is only waking up to the fact that this ancient but very sophisticated mathematical culture has much to teach us.”READ NEXT: Swedish ambassador says ‘return of the Parthenon Marbles to Athens is a question of moral principle’last_img read more

Victoria becomes the first state to adopt voluntary euthanasia laws this week

first_imgVoluntary assisted dying laws go into effect in Victoria on Wednesday, making it the first state to legalise euthanasia.Victorian Parliament first passed the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act in November 2017. Now, after an 18-month implementation phase, laws become active on Wednesday.Prior to their implementation, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said that 100 inquiries had been made from people seeking to use the new laws. Based on overseas data, Premier Andrews believes that around a dozen people will access voluntary assisted dying and the number would stabilise at around 100-150 people per year.Once approval is given, a kit will be delivered to a person’s home and a representative will take the person through the process. The medication would be provided in a locked box and include step-by-step instructions. Premedications will be offered prior to the substance, and patients will mix the medications themselves.Patients will feel drowsy after they have swallowed the mixture and become unconscious fairly quickly. Death would last for around an hour.To be eligible, applicants must be residents of Victoria aged over 18 years and have decision-making capacity, which means that patients cannot pre-plan voluntary assisted dying or be offered it if they suffer from dementia. They need to be assessed by two doctors to ensure that they have a terminal illness with intolerable pain that is likely to cause death within six to 12 months in the case of neurodegenerative illnesses, such as multiple sclerosis. Laws include safeguards to prevent the terminally ill from being pressured into the decision. Beneficiaries of the person’s will cannot be among the witnesses required to sign the application.An advocate for voluntary assisted dying, Greek Australian Victorian Health Minister Jenny Mikakos told the ABC that patients would still have access to a full range of palliative care, but the legislation will make an “enormous difference” to a small number of people approaching the end of their lives.The Orthodox Church teaches that euthanasia (Greek word meaning ‘good death’) is the deliberate cessation of human life, and, as such, must be condemned as murder. However, the headlong progress of contemporary medical technology and the various means of artificially sustaining life require that theologians make more precise the Church’s approach to the problem of euthanasia and “the right of a person to put an end to his life.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Greek NGO Metadrasi receives 2million the worlds biggest humanitarian award

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek NGO Metadrasi received a $US2 million prize, the world’s biggest humanitarian award.The group won the Hilton Humanitarian Prize offered by the Conrad N Hilton Foundation for its “innovative approach to welcoming refugees and protecting unaccompanied minors”.Metadrasi was founded in 2009 to safeguard the rights of people displaced by war or persecution, with particular emphasis on minors who had reached Greece alone because they had either been lost or separated from their parents along the way.The organisation is present at all key entry points of Greece and has proven to be a safety net for unaccompanied children that it transports from detention centres to suitable accommodation and foster care.READ MORE: Biggest spike in refugee arrivals on Greek islands since 2015Metadrasi’s founder Lora Pappa hopes that the award would be use to strengthen the group’s advocacy and help more refugee children from the 12,000 minors that it has already helped.Though the number of arrivals to Greece has dropped since 2016, UN refugee agency UNHCR estimates that there are 80,000 refugees stranded in Greece, including 4,100 unaccompanied children.last_img read more

Take Back Control of Your iPhone Battery With iOS 113

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro Have More Cameras, More ProblemsApple Arcade Launches Next Week center_img Apple’s obsession with (pricey) perfectionism makes the company especially vulnerable to public mockery whenever it puts out a less than perfect product. Even a relatively minor blemish can look like a gaping wound on an Apple product. The latest Apple hardware controversy with a dubious amount of merit is the battery throttling issue.It was discovered that as the battery of your iPhone weakens, iOS subtly begins to perform worse to maintain battery life and prevent crashing. On it’s own, this arguably isn’t that big a deal. It’s a feature that may actually help more than harm. But folks didn’t appreciate that technically the phone does get worse without telling them. It feels like a conspiracy to sell more phones. Well, the controversy has been unraveled because the latest iOS update, version 11.3, now lets users manually prevent this dynamic power-throttling.The process is simple. Just go to Settings, Battery, and the Battery Health beta. Here you can turn off the “performance management” feature. Apple will warn against it, but now you at least have a choice. You can also check how your battery is doing in general. If it’s just too weak, it may be time to buy a better one and make the whole power-throttling issue moot. Fortunately, as a result of this controversy, battery replacements are now $29 instead of $79.Even if you couldn’t care less if your battery is weakening your iPhone, there are still reasons to download this update. There’s updated health records functionality. You can more easily text directly with businesses. And iPhone X owners can map their stolen faces onto new animoji characters the bear, dragon, lion, and skull.So for all interested iPhone and iPad owners, iOS 11.3 is available for download now. Snag it and take back control of your battery.last_img read more

Google AI Turns Selfies Into Ethereal Poetry Portraits

first_imgStay on target McDonald’s Plans to Serve AI Voice Technology at Drive ThruCIMON Returns to Earth After 14 Months on ISS Roses are red, violets are blue, donate a word, and Google’s AI will write a poem for you.From the folks who brought you fine-art doppelgängers and 3D world heritage tours comes POEMPORTRAITS, an online collective artwork that superimposes unique verses on an ethereal self-portrait.Described by creator Es Devlin as “a combination of poetry, design, and machine learning,” the program invites people to generate their own compositions, and contribute to an evolving poem.Visit g.co/poemportraits to “donate” a word of your choice and take a selfie (or skip that step for text only), then watch as the computer ponders life, the universe, and everything to come up with a (sometimes incomprehensible) stanza.Create a personalized poem, with the help of AI (via Google)“Each word you donate will be expanded into original lines of poetry by an algorithm that’s trained on millions of words of 19th century poetry,” according to Devlin.The London-based artist and stage designer teamed with Google Arts & Culture and Ross Goodwin to create the technology behind POEMPORTRAITS.“It works a bit like predictive text,” Devlin said. “It doesn’t copy or rework existing phrases, but uses its training material to build a complex statistical model.“The resulting poems can be surprisingly poignant, and at other times nonsensical,” she admitted. “And it’s the profoundly human way that we seek and find personal resonance in machine-generated text that’s the essence of this project.”Case in point: I offered the word “dystopia,” and got this in return: “That dystopia still compasses the world. The calm of the sun and the sunshine.”It’s quite addictive, really. After each AI-generated poem, I dive back in with another word—”tulip,” “media,” “technology,” “equality,” “ampersand.” I’m not sure if I’m making the collective poem better or worse, but I can’t seem to stop.One of the first in-browser selfie filters that responds to the shape of your face, POEMPORTRAITS may not work on some mobile devices.More on Geek.com:Rare Bonnie and Clyde Poetry, Photos to Hit Auction BlockAI-Powered ‘Private Detector’ Protects Bumble Users From Dick PicsArtificial Intelligence Created an Entirely New Sportlast_img read more

For Sale: Rare Globe of Mars Portraying Early Theory of Life on Red Planet

first_img A unique, hand-painted globe illustrating an early theory of life on Mars made by the Danish astronomer Emmy Ingeborg Brun is up for auction — and it has been estimated to fetch up to $50,000, according to Christie’s auction house.The rare globe of the Red Planet was based off cartography published by astronomer Percival Lowell (1855-1906), who spent many years observing the surface of Mars.Lowell interpreted a series of large straight lines crisscrossing the planet (an unfortunate optical illusion), to be “canals” engineered by a Martian race to transport water from the Poles to lands near the Equator. This theory was widely shot down by the astronomical community, but became highly popular among the public at the time. Its popularity is now known as the “Canal Craze.”The globe features supposed oases and areas of seasonal vegetation named and connected by a series of canals. (Photo Credit: Christie’s)Brun, a Mars enthusiast and socialist, was intrigued by Lowell’s vision of the planet’s infrastructure, which she thought was evidence of a radically different cooperative Martian social order, according to a 2015 article by Slate. In 1905-1909, Brun adapted Lowell’s maps and sketches into a small number of handcrafted wooden globe.Brun’s globe was made from plaster applied to surface of a globe, and the cartography then painted. It features supposed oases and areas of seasonal vegetation named and connected by a series of canals. The globe is supported by a graduated half-meridian arc on turned ebonized stand. Title painted on the base reads: Mars efter Lowekks Glober 1894-1914.It’s estimated to sell for $30,000-$50,000.The globe is part of Fine Printed Books & Manuscripts Including Americana, a diverse collection of scientific properties the auction house Christie’s is selling in June.
