first_imgFormer Donegal GAA star Brendan Devenney has weighed in with his opinion on the on-going ‘sledging’ saga that has arose since Donegal’s Ulster SFC win over Tyrone.Brendan Devenney has made stomach curdling claims that a Donegal minor was taunted over death of his father.Devenney claimed that a Donegal minor player was taunted over the death of his father during a game.The former St Eunan’s attacker is worried about the mental health of GAA players who are subjected to this type of disgusting behaviour. In an interview with the Irish Examiner, Devenney said what he witnessed in Ballybofey on Sunday was a ‘pile of sh**e.Devenney said, “Up in Ulster, there is this perceived rest of the country versus Ulster attitude when it comes to football and how it is played. You have people down South criticising the sledging, goading and cynicism that goes on in Ulster and those inside the province don’t like it.“As somebody from Ulster, I have to say that what is going on and what we witnessed in Ballyboyfey in the senior game was a pile of s***e.“There is this harshness up North, particularly with the six counties. When I played with Donegal, we were seen as a soft touch. “Armagh would have used those tactics of goading we saw at the weekend. Down would have done so, Tyrone too.However, Devenney most shocking claim is that a Donegal minor player was taunted and goaded over the loss of his father to cancer.“I heard back from a very good source that one Donegal minor, who lost his father to cancer, was taunted about that during a game.“That would turn your stomach.“There is the mental health element here and are players able to take what is being said to them? “What must that minor have been thinking after the game?”Is it time the GAA done something to eradicate ‘sledging’ from the game?Let us hear your thoughts?FORMER DONEGAL STAR REVEALS MINOR PLAYER TAUNTED OVER DEATH OF HIS FATHER was last modified: May 21st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Brendan DevenneydonegalGAAmental healthMinornewsSledgingSportTyroneUlster SFClast_img read more

Mobile Application to Diagnose Disease by Hearing you Cough

first_imgTags:#health#mobile#news#NYT#Real World#web Feeling a bit under the weather? Soon you’ll be able to cough into your mobile phone for an instant diagnosis. A research firm called STAR Analytical Services is working to develop software that can analyze the sound of a cough and identify it as either associated with a common cold, the flu, or something worse – like pneumonia or another serious respiratory disease. Just as doctors have been doing for years, the software will “listen” to the wetness or dryness of a cough and determine whether all you need is a lozenge or if you need to come in for a doctor’s visit instead. Turn Your Head…Towards Your Mobile PhoneThe American and Australian scientists at STAR have received a $100,000 grant from the Gates Foundation to develop the cough-analyzing software for developing countries where access to health care is more limited than in first world nations. Despite the poor economic conditions of these under-developed countries, there are a plethora of mobile phones which are being used for everything from early warning systems to mobile payments to health alerts. An mobile app that diagnoses disease would fit right in. The way the diagnostic software works is by comparing the sounds of the mobile user’s cough to a database of coughs associated with all the different types of respiratory diseases. There would also be multiple coughs per disease stored in the database to take into account variations by age, gender, weight, and other factors. While to our untrained ears, many coughs sound just alike, a tuned-in doctor – or in this case, a mobile app – can listen to the entire structure of a cough from the initial intake of air to the final 100-150 milliseconds of a cough that contains the distinctive “wet” or “dry” and “productive” or “unproductive” sounds that help to classify the cough’s seriousness, explains an article on Discovery News. Even the loudness of a cough is taken into account – healthy people have coughs that are 2% louder than a sick person’s. At the moment, the software exists as a computer application but the scientists plan to have it re-written, when complete, as an application for mobile phones. There’s no word on when the mobile application will be released, but the scientists will need to collect around 1000 cough samples before the database is ready. If they’re able to then design a successful analytical tool for mobile phones, the impacts to people’s health would be far-reaching – and not just in developing countries, but everywhere in the world.

After Priyanka, Scindia meets U.P. Cong. leaders

first_imgFollowing his party’s worst-ever drubbing in the Lok Sabha polls in Uttar Pradeh, Congress general secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia on Friday met the party’s State leaders to assess what went wrong in the elections.Mr. Scindia, who was made in-charge of western U.P. and given the responsibility of 38 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in the State, failed to ensure a single victory. A Congress leader who attended the meeting said he spoke to the district and city unit chiefs of the organisation to find out the possible causes behind the rout. Two days ago, party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, entrusted with the task of managing polls in the remaining 42 seats in the eastern U.P., carried out a similar exercise in Raebareli, which was the only seat won by the party this time from the State. UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi was re-elected from Raebareli, while Congress president Rahul Gandhi, her son, lost his Amethi seat. Brainstorming sessionMs. Vadra has asked senior U.P. Congress leaders to attend a brainstorming session in Delhi over the weekend to chart out the strategy to contest the 2022 U.P. Assembly polls.last_img read more

CAG questions CWG contracts

first_imgThe Comptroller and Auditor General of India, in its interim report, has said dubious procedures were followed in awarding the sponsorship deal for the Commonwealth Games to Melbourne-based Sports Marketing and Management (SMAM).Headlines Today has accessed a copy of this confidential report, which nails the Organising Committee of the Commonwealth Games.In the sponsorship contract awarded to SMAM, the audit watchdog noticed some serious lapses in procedure. It has raised serious questions about the involvement of Commonwealth Games CEO Mike Hooper in the entire negotiation process.The CAG report reveals that it was the CEO, CGF who insisted on the appointment of SMAM, putting question marks over the entire process. It raises serious doubts over the process of inviting tenders saying that the OC did not provide adequate publicity inviting tenders for the sponsorship contract as per its own guidelines.The OC also did not follow the guidelines of the CVC in relating to appointment of consultants. The time prescribed for submission of  tender was also not adequate and was not in keeping with CVC guidelines, it says.The OC is also accused of not carrying out enough research to survey other firms giving sports marketing services.The OC also agreed to bear tax liability of SMAM over and above its liability of 10.54 per cent. It did not question the commission paid to PSUs as per SMAM contract even though other firms were offering less, says the report.The OC set an annual performance review bracket as opposed to the half-year term as set for Fast Track, the consultant for international broadcast rights. No penalty clause in case of failure in delivery was set in the contract, the report adds.advertisementlast_img read more
