A Look into the Process of the Microsoft Powered Kinetic Sculpture   

Momentum is a Microsoft-powered kinetic wood sculpture. It made of locally sourced ash wood. Inspired by the Microsoft logo, the sculpture is made up of 80 Ultramotion motors and 160 wooden tiles. As if it was alive, it moves when it senses human motion. Custom LEDs light up, illuminating the walls movement. When interacted with it feels as though the wall is following your every move.

The video shows behind the scenes process of a fully integrated system involving motors, sensors and light, titled Momentum.

Momentum is permanently exhibited at the Microsoft Lounge in downtown LA.

1/48 McDonnell-Douglas F/A-18A+/B/CF-188 with RAAF DecalsThis is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and Northrop, the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations and, since 1986, by the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.

The F/A-18 has a top speed of Mach 1.8 (1,034 knots, 1,190 mph or 1,915 km/h at 40,000 ft or 12,190 m). It can carry a wide variety of bombs and missiles, including air-to-air and air-to-ground, supplemented by the 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon. It is powered by two General Electric F404 turbofan engines, which give the aircraft a high thrust-to-weight ratio. The F/A-18 has excellent aerodynamic characteristics, primarily attributed to its leading edge extensions (LEX). The fighter's primary missions are fighter escort, fleet air defense, Suppression of Enemy Air Defences (SEAD), air interdiction, close air support and aerial reconnaissance. Its versatility and reliability have proven it to be a valuable carrier asset, though it has been criticized for its lack of range and payload compared to its earlier contemporaries, such as the Grumman F-14 Tomcat in the fighter and strike fighter role, and the Grumman A-6 Intruder and LTV A-7 Corsair II in the attack role.

          What Are Some Exercises I Can Do to Help Relieve Neck Pain?   

Bryan M.
The Woodlands

"Flexibility and stretching exercises can expand or preserve the range of motion and elasticity in affected cervical joints, and thus relieve the stiffness that leads to pain. As a general rule, neck stretching is best done every day, and some stretches should be done several times a day.  Examples include the corner stretch and levator scapulae stretch.

"Specific strengthening exercises will help maintain improved posture, which in turn will lessen or eliminate recurrent flare-ups of pain. As a general rule, neck strengthening exercises should be done every other day to allow muscles time to repair themselves.  Examples include prone cobra and chin tuck."

Karen C.
Elements Medford

"An exercise I do to relieve my neck pain is neck rotation, both side-to-side and front-and-back."

Meredith M.
Elements Timonium

"First, is the neck pain acute or chronic -- is it likely a pinched nerve, or did you just "sleep funny"? Is it something you should see a doctor or physical therapist about first?  Once you've answered these questions a combination of stretches and exercises you might do are chin tucks (which can be held as a stretch as well), scalene stretches (for posterior and anterior), levator scapulae stretch, isometric strengthening exercises and cervical range of motion.

"Stretches and exercises for your neck are best done slowly. Try to do a few reps as tolerated and hold stretches for at least 15 seconds."

          Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast -- Star Chamber -- Podcast #22   
The Star Chamber is a room that contains three devices. Its construction and design are and have been the apex of my hobby for the last five or so years. My hobby is "the quest for youth and the restoration of the character of youth." It is called a star chamber because of a starscape effect that gives the user the feeling that he or she is floating in a starry night sky or better said "floating in space." The first such system was brought into use on February 20, 1998 and has provided experiences to hundreds of people since this time, the most notable of which is Dr. C. Norman Shealy. Because of the three steps that were involved, it became also known as two naps and a bath that reversed the aging process. The experience goes like this: A person rests on a bed made of a particular "black crystal". The time is established by the kinetic response of the individual. The second part of this experience is the bath. Again the question is kinetically posed and for the desired period of time, a person soaks in a truly unique water and "floats in space". Finally the third aspect is another nap. This time on a bed made of a remarkable laminar crystal that can be found in melting snow from very high elevations. The results vary, but generally the person receiving the experience shows measurable physical changes that dynamically exceed any other beneficial experience on earth.

          How To Boost Your Energy AND Lose A Dress Size In 14 days   
Our World is pure energy - a pulsing, living, life force. Energy never dies. Never. It only gets transformed. YOU are energy: two kinds: there is the one - potential energy. That's what you have - potentially, meaning it's there but you're not doing much with it. It's like the teacher who says to the mother of the eight year old child, " Your child has potential - yes, I see it - but they're just not doing the work. To lose weight you have to first decide that you will do the work it takes to reach your desired goal. How can you translate the thought into doing? That's called kinetic energy. By taking action. Yoga, a 5000 year old form of exercise takes you to kinetic energy and guides you to the path of doing, of taking action.




Yoga also makes you think. When you think about something - that's potential - the actual doing puts your energy to work. Yoga guides you to see the potential of being your fittest self in mind, body and spirit. So what does that term mean- mind, body, spirit and how can yoga help you lose weight? First off, you must decide to lose the weight. Weight loss begins and ends in your mind. Yoga brings you a realization of your full potential of kinetic energy to motivate your mind to take the actions so vital to take charge of the health of your body. When your mind and body feel are positively in sync, your spirit feels energized and ready to take on the challenges of your busy life.




Your life affects your energy and your energy affects the mood of others around you. Someone with positive energy can make you feel emotionally happy and more willing to exercise. That's why some exercise teachers are better at motivating you than others. A good yoga teacher smiles, they're positive and uplifting and you mirror their energy. That's true. Just as true is when you have low energy perhaps from a sad day or a headache - that's a physical symptom. We need to be aware of where our energy is and how to use it constructively.




Here's a simple exercise - easy to do- that can put you in touch with your energy system. We call it developing your "second attention" - something that yoga has had 5000 years to develop.




Note what you see/do/feel when you wake in the morning. The very first thing. Perhaps that you look at the clock or look at your spouse - that's your visual energy - or hear the sound - that's your hearing energy - or touch by reaching out for your robe or the hand of your love - your feeling energy. Now, to develop your "second attention" try doing it another way - any of the ways which relate to your 5 senses. Do a different one touch/feel/sight/hear/smell each day. When you develop your second attention, you can apply this strategy to the foods you eat and this will lead you to practice "mindfullness" with foods and activities. Think about what you put into your mouth and ask yourself, "will this food get you the results you seek? What activities will give you the health and energy you deserve? Yoga is the perfect chisel to carve your mind, body,and spirit into the energetic, fit person God meant for you to be.




Wishing you healthiest blessings and the belief that you can attain them. I believe in you.

          Uprooted by Naomi Novik   
I didn't voluntarily choose to read this book.  Marion raved about it; I went to a book store--to buy something else--and was told, then forcibly made by Frankie, to buy and read Uprooted instead.  If nothing else, Novik has some kick-ass fans.

More than anything else concerning this book, I love the title.  There are nearly endless references none of which feel forced or cliched.  The main character Agnieszka (upon finishing the book I was surprised to learn many people didn't know how to pronounce her name--perhaps this is my payoff for being a tennis fan…) is quite literally dragged away from her life to only then turn the life of her captor, The Dragon, upside-down.  Then the duo proceed to shake up the world a bit.  Oh, and in case you're wondering it's not just the title: the book is really good too.  

I almost felt like I was reading two books--and thank the publishing gods (are there such cruel deities?) that such a fate wasn't imparted to this novel.  The first book tells the first half of Agnieszka's life: growing up in a small village (boring) only to be--on what seems a whim--chosen by The Dragon to spend the next ten years of her life in his tower (aggressively more interesting).  

Agnieszka represents a large sample of my most recent female, teenaged protagonist; horrible and seemingly unable to help herself from complicating her life.  She's not good at magic despite having the gift; so naturally she doesn't study or practice and avoids the topic.  Somehow, this turns her into a latent savant of sorts (it was never explained) and she becomes a badass wizard.  Basically, she fails arithmetic for life but calc III and kinetics are a breeze… 

The purpose of learning magic is to help fight The Wood; the reader learns this half way through.  The Wood is sentient, multi-faceted, and very dangerous.  I think one has to be a regular fantasy reader for this novel to click.  The Wood; heart-trees; even the beginning with it's multiple and vague references to The Dragon, you kinda gotta bring something to the table to fully understand and appreciate the conflict going on.  It also wasn't completely secondary-world fantasy which was strange, as words like 'christening' 'matins' and 'Venezia' were used along with Baba Yaga being a character.  

There is a lot going on in the beginning of the book and a lot of points of interest, but there isn't much actual conflict other than Agnieszka getting on your nerves and The Dragon being obstinate.  (I returned to the same bookstore two days after starting and Frankie promised me Agnieszka would 'get better.')  The start of the conflict is the beginning of the 'second book' I mentioned.  

After so much intimacy with The Dragon and Agnieszka her move to the big city and court life felt awkward and none of the other 'new' characters had anywhere near a great enough opportunity to develop as our two previous main characters.  The Dragon all but falls out of the book, and Agnieszka bumbles around with no direction for too many pages.  Court intrigue seems to present it self as a 'bad guy.'  And giving The Wood enough personality, as well as human embodiment, to dislike it felt rushed and under-whelming.  The 'second book' to me felt filler-ish in a 'get to the final battle stuff soon' kinda way.  I was always entertained and sometimes even riveted, but never had problems going to sleep with pages left unread.  

For all of it's freshness and subversion of themes, the end was surprising run-of-the-mill military fantasy stuff.  That's isn't to say it wasn't good or well done, but I was very surprised.  

Now I know it's been awhile and I've kinda fallen out of the habit with book commentaries so in case you've forgotten how to translate The Chad; I'm here to help.  I only criticize stuff I like because I want to like it more.  I'm not quite back to my usual long-winded form but yeah, Uprooted was kinda awesome.

Dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI of the microenvironment of pancreatic adenocarcinoma xenografts.

Acta Oncol. 2017 Jun 29;:1-9

Authors: Wegner CS, Hauge A, Gaustad JV, Andersen LMK, Simonsen TG, Galappathi K, Rofstad EK

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an aggressive disease with poor outcome. Resistance to treatment is associated with impaired vascularity, extensive hypoxia, and interstitial hypertension. In this study, the potential of dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE)-MRI as a method for assessing the microvascular density (MVD), the fraction of hypoxic tissue, and the interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) of PDACs was investigated.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Intramuscular BxPC-3, Capan-2, MIAPaCa-2, and Panc-1 PDAC xenografts were used as preclinical models of human PDACs. DCE-MRI with Gd-DOTA as contrast agent was conducted with a 7.05-T scanner, and the DCE-MRI series were analyzed voxelwise by using the Tofts pharmacokinetic model. Tumor MVD and hypoxia were measured in histological preparations by using pimonidazole as a hypoxia marker and CD31 as a marker of endothelial cells. IFP was measured with a Millar catheter.
RESULTS: K(trans) (the volume transfer constant of Gd-DOTA) increased with increasing MVD and decreased with increasing hypoxic fraction, but was not associated with IFP. Any association between ve (the fractional distribution volume of Gd-DOTA) and MVD, hypoxic fraction, or IFP could not be detected.
CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that DCE-MRI is a useful modality for assessing important features of the microenvironment of PDAC xenografts and thus provides the basis for future preclinical and clinical DCE-MRI investigations of PDAC.

Reenactor throws a spear at a drone

What a time to be alive.

“The medieval warrior, realizing the consequences of his impulsive act, immediately approached the owner of the drone and offered to pay for the damage.

The owner of the drone was so impressed by the brilliant attack that he suggested organizing a competition for bringing down “dragons” with short spears next year.

Drone owners have another year to develop a unique “dragon-like” design for their flying machines.” (x)

I am 100% cooler with this knowing that the spear-thrower realized “oops maybe I shouldn’t have done that” and tried to make it right, and that the guy who the drone belonged to was cool with it

just so everyone knows, this has already been memorialized in a runestone


Sometimes the world isn’t such a bad place.

Medication advancement has improved personal satisfaction for some age gatherings and handicaps. Pharmaceutical associations are meaning to expand tranquilize disclosure and streamlining utilizing natural intensifies that are likewise extensively characterized as little natural atoms and biologics. Another expansion to tranquilize outlining, as some would call it, incorporates using PC helped medicate plan.As per specialists in the field, PC helped medicate configuration incorporates progressions in the field of natural chemistry, atomic, and cell science to build the quick plan and creation of medications.The investigation of medication configuration incorporates pharmacology and pharmacogenomics. Pharmacology ponders how drugs function in the body and genomics concentrates on attributes in view of a man's total DNA. Pharmacogenomics breaks down hereditary variables that impact how drugs function. These two can decide if a patient is fit for getting drug treatment.Medication treatment does not take a shot at all individuals on account of their hereditary qualities. Qualities impact responsiveness to certain medication components, for example, wholesome state, attending drugs or pharmacogenomics. Qualities likewise decide structure and sythesis in which a medication is responsive by the science of a man.Since confirm based is such a famous research implies for any type of business, it is nothing unexpected medication treatment, sedate improvement, tranquilize outline, whichever you call it, is utilizing proof based ways to deal with anticipate sedate responsiveness in light of hereditary qualities. Ni-NTA resin columnPharmaceutical associations are proceeding with thinks about in their own particular research labs. The pioneers are propelling medication disclosure by giving in vitro and in vivo contract investigate administrations.Medication advancement administrations can incorporate a full scope of pharmacokinetic and ADME administrations for IND/NDA, vivarium with gifted specialized staff, FDA rules for LC-MS/MS technique improvement and approval.Natural chemistry administrations could be cell-based tests, protein expression, protein cleansing, ligand restricting examines, chemical inhibitor portrayal and system, or biomarker measures.Bio-expository administrations, however comparable in semantics, breaks down fast screening strategies, technique improvement and approval, visual PK, star medication and metabolite PK.Medication revelation is planned to be for the upside of patients, regardless of whether current of future. It is continually advancing, taking out different medicines for only one, the better one. It is awful to figure out how hereditary qualities assumes a part, however doesn't it generally. It appears to be worth finding if your body impacts your remedies assimilation.It is a confused field for those not specifically connected with or influenced. Perhaps it merits examining further how the field of medication enhancement is advancing. The science behind it just confounds mind that are not comfortable with the language.

What lay behind Russia’s interference in the 2016 election—and what lies ahead?

By Evan Osnos, David Remnick, and Joshua Yaffa

 

  

The D.N.C. hacks, many analysts believe, were just a skirmish in a larger war against Western institutions and alliances.ILLUSTRATION BY CHRISTOPH NIEMANN

1. SOFT TARGETS

On April 12, 1982, Yuri Andropov, the chairman of the K.G.B., ordered foreign-intelligence operatives to carry out “active measures”—aktivniye meropriyatiya—against the reëlection campaign of President Ronald Reagan. Unlike classic espionage, which involves the collection of foreign secrets, active measures aim at influencing events—at undermining a rival power with forgeries, front groups, and countless other techniques honed during the Cold War. The Soviet leadership considered Reagan an implacable militarist. According to extensive notes made by Vasili Mitrokhin, a high-ranking K.G.B. officer and archivist who later defected to Great Britain, Soviet intelligence tried to infiltrate the headquarters of the Republican and Democratic National Committees, popularize the slogan “Reagan Means War!,” and discredit the President as a corrupt servant of the military-industrial complex. The effort had no evident effect. Reagan won forty-nine of fifty states.

Active measures were used by both sides throughout the Cold War. In the nineteen-sixties, Soviet intelligence officers spread a rumor that the U.S. government was involved in the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. In the eighties, they spread the rumor that American intelligence had “created” the aids virus, at Fort Detrick, Maryland. They regularly lent support to leftist parties and insurgencies. The C.I.A., for its part, worked to overthrow regimes in Iran, Cuba, Haiti, Brazil, Chile, and Panama. It used cash payments, propaganda, and sometimes violent measures to sway elections away from leftist parties in Italy, Guatemala, Indonesia, South Vietnam, and Nicaragua. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, in the early nineties, the C.I.A. asked Russia to abandon active measures to spread disinformation that could harm the U.S. Russia promised to do so. But when Sergey Tretyakov, the station chief for Russian intelligence in New York, defected, in 2000, he revealed that Moscow’s active measures had never subsided. “Nothing has changed,” he wrote, in 2008. “Russia is doing everything it can today to embarrass the U.S.”

Vladimir Putin, who is quick to accuse the West of hypocrisy, frequently points to this history. He sees a straight line from the West’s support of the anti-Moscow “color revolutions,” in Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, and Ukraine, which deposed corrupt, Soviet-era leaders, to its endorsement of the uprisings of the Arab Spring. Five years ago, he blamed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the anti-Kremlin protests in Moscow’s Bolotnaya Square. “She set the tone for some of our actors in the country and gave the signal,” Putin said. “They heard this and, with the support of the U.S. State Department, began active work.” (No evidence was provided for the accusation.) He considers nongovernmental agencies and civil-society groups like the National Endowment for Democracy, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and the election-monitoring group Golos to be barely disguised instruments of regime change.

The U.S. officials who administer the system that Putin sees as such an existential danger to his own reject his rhetoric as “whataboutism,” a strategy of false moral equivalences. Benjamin Rhodes, a deputy national-security adviser under President Obama, is among those who reject Putin’s logic, but he said, “Putin is not entirely wrong,” adding that, in the past, “we engaged in regime change around the world. There is just enough rope for him to hang us.”*

The 2016 Presidential campaign in the United States was of keen interest to Putin. He loathed Obama, who had applied economic sanctions against Putin’s cronies after the annexation of Crimea and the invasion of eastern Ukraine. (Russian state television derided Obama as “weak,” “uncivilized,” and a “eunuch.”) Clinton, in Putin’s view, was worse—the embodiment of the liberal interventionist strain of U.S. foreign policy, more hawkish than Obama, and an obstacle to ending sanctions and reëstablishing Russian geopolitical influence. At the same time, Putin deftly flattered Trump, who was uncommonly positive in his statements about Putin’s strength and effectiveness as a leader. As early as 2007, Trump declared that Putin was “doing a great job in rebuilding the image of Russia and also rebuilding Russia period.” In 2013, before visiting Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, Trump wondered, in a tweet, if he would meet Putin, and, “if so, will he become my new best friend?” During the Presidential campaign, Trump delighted in saying that Putin was a superior leader who had turned the Obama Administration into a “laughingstock.”

For those interested in active measures, the digital age presented opportunities far more alluring than anything available in the era of Andropov. The Democratic and Republican National Committees offered what cybersecurity experts call a large “attack surface.” Tied into politics at the highest level, they were nonetheless unprotected by the defenses afforded to sensitive government institutions. John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and a former chief of staff of Bill Clinton’s, had every reason to be aware of the fragile nature of modern communications. As a senior counsellor in the Obama White House, he was involved in digital policy. Yet even he had not bothered to use the most elementary sort of defense, two-step verification, for his e-mail account.

“The honest answer is that my team and I were over-reliant on the fact that we were pretty careful about what we click on,” Podesta said. In this instance, he received a phishing e-mail, ostensibly from “the Gmail team,” that urged him to “change your password immediately.” An I.T. person who was asked to verify it mistakenly replied that it was “a legitimate e-mail.”

The American political landscape also offered a particularly soft target for dezinformatsiya, false information intended to discredit the official version of events, or the very notion of reliable truth. Americans were more divided along ideological lines than at any point in two decades, according to the Pew Research Center. American trust in the mainstream media had fallen to a historic low. The fractured media environment seemed to spawn conspiracy theories about everything from Barack Obama’s place of birth (supposedly Kenya) to the origins of climate change (a Chinese hoax). Trump, in building his political identity, promoted such theories.

“Free societies are often split because people have their own views, and that’s what former Soviet and current Russian intelligence tries to take advantage of,” Oleg Kalugin, a former K.G.B. general, who has lived in the United States since 1995, said. “The goal is to deepen the splits.” Such a strategy is especially valuable when a country like Russia, which is considerably weaker than it was at the height of the Soviet era, is waging a geopolitical struggle with a stronger entity.

In early January, two weeks before the Inauguration, James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, released a declassified report concluding that Putin had ordered an influence campaign to harm Clinton’s election prospects, fortify Donald Trump’s, and “undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process.” The declassified report provides more assertion than evidence. Intelligence officers say that this was necessary to protect their information-gathering methods.

Critics of the report have repeatedly noted that intelligence agencies, in the months before the Iraq War, endorsed faulty assessments concerning weapons of mass destruction. But the intelligence community was deeply divided over the actual extent of Iraq’s weapons development; the question of Russia’s responsibility for cyberattacks in the 2016 election has produced no such tumult. Seventeen federal intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia was responsible for the hacking.

In testimony before the Senate, Clapper described an unprecedented Russian effort to interfere in the U.S. electoral process. The operation involved hacking Democrats’ e-mails, publicizing the stolen contents through WikiLeaks, and manipulating social media to spread “fake news” and pro-Trump messages.

At first, Trump derided the scrutiny of the hacking as a “witch hunt,” and said that the attacks could have been from anyone—the Russians, the Chinese, or “somebody sitting on their bed that weighs four hundred pounds.” In the end, he grudgingly accepted the finding, but insisted that Russian interference had had “absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election.” Yevgenia Albats, the author of “The State Within a State,” a book about the K.G.B., said that Putin probably didn’t believe he could alter the results of the election, but, because of his antipathy toward Obama and Clinton, he did what he could to boost Trump’s cause and undermine America’s confidence in its political system. Putin was not interested in keeping the operation covert, Albats said. “He wanted to make it as public as possible. He wanted his presence to be known,” and to “show that, no matter what, we can enter your house and do what we want.”

2. COLD WAR 2.0

Remarkably, the Obama Administration learned of the hacking operation only in early summer—nine months after the F.B.I. first contacted the D.N.C. about the intrusion—and then was reluctant to act too strongly, for fear of being seen as partisan. Leaders of the Pentagon, the State Department, and the intelligence agencies met during the summer, but their focus was on how to safeguard state election commissions and electoral systems against a hack on Election Day.

That caution has embittered Clinton’s inner circle. “We understand the bind they were in,” one of Clinton’s senior advisers said. “But what if Barack Obama had gone to the Oval Office, or the East Room of the White House, and said, ‘I’m speaking to you tonight to inform you that the United States is under attack. The Russian government at the highest levels is trying to influence our most precious asset, our democracy, and I’m not going to let it happen.’ A large majority of Americans would have sat up and taken notice. My attitude is that we don’t have the right to lay blame for the results of this election at anybody’s feet, but, to me, it is bewildering—it is baffling—it is hard to make sense of why this was not a five-alarm fire in the White House.”

The Obama circle, which criticizes Clinton’s team for failing to lock down seemingly solid states like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, insists that the White House acted appropriately. “What could we have done?” Benjamin Rhodes said. “We said they were doing it, so everybody had the basis to know that all the WikiLeaks material and the fake news were tied to Russia. There was no action we could have taken to stop the e-mails or the fake news from being propagated. . . . All we could do was expose it.”

Last September, at a G-20 summit, in China, Obama confronted Putin about the hacking, telling him to “cut it out,” and, above all, to keep away from the balloting in November, or there would be “serious consequences.” Putin neither denied nor confirmed the hacking efforts, but replied that the United States has long funded media outlets and civil-society groups that meddle in Russian affairs.

In October, as evidence of Russian meddling mounted, senior national-security officials met to consider a plan of response; proposals included releasing damaging information about Russian officials, including their bank accounts, or a cyber operation directed at Moscow. Secretary of State John Kerry was concerned that such plans might undercut diplomatic efforts to get Russia to coöperate with the West in Syria—efforts that eventually failed. In the end, security officials unanimously agreed to take a measured approach: the Administration issued a statement, on October 7th, declaring it was confident that the Russians had hacked the D.N.C. The Administration did not want to overreact in a way that could seem political and amplify Trump’s message that the vote was rigged.

The White House watched for signs that Russian intelligence was crossing what a senior national-security official called “the line between covert influence and adversely affecting the vote count”—and found no evidence that it had done so. At the time, Clinton was leading in the race, which, the official said, reinforced Obama’s decision not to respond more aggressively. “If we have a very forceful response, it actually helps delegitimize the election.”

That sense of caution continued during the transition, when Obama was intent on an orderly transfer of power. Secretary of State Kerry proposed the creation of an independent bipartisan group to investigate Russian interference in the election. It would have been modelled on the 9/11 Commission, a body consisting of five Republicans and five Democrats who interviewed more than twelve hundred people. According to two senior officials, Obama reviewed Kerry’s proposal but ultimately rejected it, in part because he was convinced that Republicans in Congress would regard it as a partisan exercise. One aide who favored the idea says, “It would have gotten the ball rolling, making it difficult for Trump to shut it down. Now it’s a lot harder to make it happen.”

During the transition, officials in the Obama Administration were hearing that Trump was somehow compromised or beholden to Russian interests. “The Russians make investments in people not knowing the exact outcome,” one senior Administration official said. “They obtain leverage on those people, too.” No conclusive evidence has yet emerged for such suspicions about Trump. Another Administration official said that, during the transfer of power, classified intelligence had shown multiple contacts between Trump associates and Russian representatives, but nothing that rose to the level of aiding or coördinating the interference with the election. “We had no clear information—that I was aware of—of collusion,” the official said. That question, however, persists, and will likely be a central focus for congressional investigators.

By Inauguration Day, January 20th, the evidence of a wide-scale Russian operation had prompted the formation of a joint task force, including the C.I.A., the F.B.I., the N.S.A., and the financial-crimes unit of the Treasury Department. Three Senate committees, including the Intelligence Committee, have launched inquiries; some Democrats worry that the Trump Administration will try to stifle these investigations. Although senators on the Intelligence Committee cannot reveal classified information, they have ways of signalling concern. Three weeks after the election, Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, and six other members of the committee sent a public letter to Obama, declaring, “We believe there is additional information concerning the Russian Government and the U.S. election that should be declassified and released to the public.” At a hearing in January, Wyden pushed further. While questioning James Comey, the director of the F.B.I., Wyden cited media reports that some Trump associates had links to Russians who are close to Putin. Wyden asked if Comey would declassify information on that subject and “release it to the American people.” Comey said, “I can’t talk about it.” Wyden’s questioning had served its purpose.

Later, in an interview, Wyden said, “My increasing concern is that classification now is being used much more for political security than for national security. We wanted to get that out before a new Administration took place. I can’t remember seven senators joining a declassification request.” Asked if he suspects that there has been improper contact between the Trump campaign and Russian interests, Wyden said, “I can’t get into that”—without revealing classified information. “But what I can tell you is, I continue to believe, as I have for many months, that there is more that could be declassified.” He added, “When a foreign power interferes with American institutions, you don’t just say, ‘Oh, that’s business as usual,’ and leave it at that. There’s a historical imperative here, too.” After viewing the classified materials, Mark Warner, of Virginia, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said of the Russia investigation, “This may very well be the most important thing I do in my public life.”

Two weeks before the Inauguration, intelligence officers briefed both Obama and Trump about a dossier of unverified allegations compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer. The thirty-five-page dossier, which included claims about Trump’s behavior during a 2013 trip to Moscow, had been shopped around to various media outlets by researchers opposed to Trump’s candidacy. The dossier concluded that Russia had personal and financial material on Trump that could be used as blackmail. It said that the Russians had been “cultivating, supporting, and assisting” Trump for years. According to current and former government officials, prurient details in the dossier generated skepticism among some members of the intelligence community, who, as one put it, regarded it as a “nutty” product to present to a President. But, in the weeks that followed, they confirmed some of its less explosive claims, relating to conversations with foreign nationals. “They are continuing to chase down stuff from the dossier, and, at its core, a lot of it is bearing out,” an intelligence official said. Some officials believe that one reason the Russians compiled information on Trump during his 2013 trip was that he was meeting with Russian oligarchs who might be stashing money abroad—a sign of disloyalty, in Putin’s eyes.

Trump denounced the dossier as a fake. Putin’s spokesman called it “pulp fiction.” But, before the dossier became public, Senator John McCain passed it along to the F.B.I.; later, some of his colleagues said that it should be part of an investigation of Trump. Richard Burr, a Republican from North Carolina and the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, vowed to investigate “everywhere the intelligence tells us to go.”

For many national-security officials, the e-mail hacks were part of a larger, and deeply troubling, picture: Putin’s desire to damage American confidence and to undermine the Western alliances—diplomatic, financial, and military—that have shaped the postwar world.

Not long before leaving the White House, Benjamin Rhodes said that the Obama Administration was convinced that Putin had gone into an “offensive mode beyond what he sees as his sphere of influence,” setting out to encourage the “breakup” of the European Union, destabilize nato, and unnerve the object of his keenest resentment—the United States. Rhodes said, “The new phase we’re in is that the Russians have moved into an offensive posture that threatens the very international order.” Samantha Power offered a similar warning, shortly before leaving her post as United Nations Ambassador. Russia, she said, was “taking steps that are weakening the rules-based order that we have benefitted from for seven decades.”

For nearly two decades, U.S.-Russian relations have ranged between strained and miserable. Although the two countries have come to agreements on various issues, including trade and arms control, the general picture is grim. Many Russian and American policy experts no longer hesitate to use phrases like “the second Cold War.”

The level of tension has alarmed experienced hands on both sides. “What we have is a situation in which the strong leader of a relatively weak state is acting in opposition to weak leaders of relatively strong states,” General Sir Richard Shirreff, the former Deputy Supreme Allied Commander of nato, said. “And that strong leader is Putin. He is calling the shots at the moment.” Shirreff observes that nato’s withdrawal of military forces from Europe has been answered with incidents of Russian aggression, and with a sizable buildup of forces in the vicinity of the Baltic states, including an aircraft-carrier group dispatched to the North Sea, an expanded deployment of nuclear-capable Iskander-M ballistic missiles, and anti-ship missiles. The Kremlin, for its part, views the expansion of nato to Russia’s borders as itself a provocation, and points to such U.S. measures as the placement of a new ground-based missile-defense system in Deveselu, Romania.

Robert Gates, who was Secretary of Defense under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama, describes relations between Obama and Putin as having been “poisonous” and casts at least some of the blame on Obama; referring to Russia as a “regional power,” as Obama did, was “the equivalent of referring to isis as a J.V. team,” in his view. “I think the new Administration has a big challenge in front of it in terms of stopping the downward spiral in the U.S.-Russia relationship while pushing back against Putin’s aggression and general thuggery,” Gates said. “Every time nato makes a move or Russia makes a move near its border, there is a response. Where does that all stop? So there is a need to stop that downward spiral. The dilemma is how do you do that without handing Putin a victory of huge proportions?”

Some in Moscow are alarmed, too. Dmitry Trenin, a well-connected political and military analyst for the Carnegie Moscow Center, said that in early fall, before Trump’s victory, “we were on a course for a ‘kinetic’ collision in Syria.” He said that the Kremlin expected that, if Clinton won, she would take military action in Syria, perhaps establishing no-fly zones, provoking the rebels to shoot down Russian aircraft, “and getting the Russians to feel it was Afghanistan revisited.” He added, “Then my imagination just left me.”

Not in a generation has the enmity run this deep, according to Sergey Rogov, the academic director of the Institute for U.S. and Canadian Studies, in Moscow. “I spent many years in the trenches of the first Cold War, and I don’t want to die in the trenches of the second,” Rogov said. “We are back to 1983, and I don’t enjoy being thirty-four years younger in this way. It’s frightening.”

3. PUTIN’S WORLD

Putin’s resentment of the West, and his corresponding ambition to establish an anti-Western conservatism, is rooted in his experience of decline and fall—not of Communist ideology, which was never a central concern of his generation, but, rather, of Russian power and pride. Putin, who was born in 1952, grew up in Leningrad, where, during the Second World War, Nazi troops imposed a nine-hundred-day siege that starved the city. His father was badly wounded in the war. Putin joined the K.G.B. in 1975, when he was twenty-three, and was eventually sent to East Germany.

Posted in one of the grayest of the Soviet satellites, Putin entirely missed the sense of awakening and opportunity that accompanied perestroika, and experienced only the state’s growing fecklessness. At the very moment the Berlin Wall was breached, in November, 1989, he was in the basement of a Soviet diplomatic compound in Dresden feeding top-secret documents into a furnace. As crowds of Germans threatened to break into the building, officers called Moscow for assistance, but, in Putin’s words, “Moscow was silent.”

Putin returned to Russia, where the sense of post-imperial decline persisted. The West no longer feared Soviet power; Eastern and Central Europe were beyond Moscow’s control; and the fifteen republics of the Soviet Union were all going their own way. An empire shaped by Catherine the Great and Joseph Stalin was dissolving.

In Moscow, Western reporters could arrange visits to crumbling nuclear-weapons sites, once secret underground bunkers, and half-empty prison camps. The most forbidding commissars of the Soviet Union—leaders of the K.G.B., the Army, and the Communist Party—failed in an attempt to pull off a counter-revolutionary coup d’état, in August, 1991, and were locked away in a notorious prison called the Sailor’s Rest. Other high-ranking loyalists, refusing the judgment of the new order, administered justice for themselves. The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, knowing that he was about to be arrested, wrote a note (“I lived honestly all my life”), shot his wife, shoved the barrel of a revolver into his mouth, and pulled the trigger.

For Westerners caught up in post-Cold War triumphalism, it was easier to take note of the new liberties than of the new anxieties, which were profound for millions of Russians. The fall of the imperial state meant the loss of two million square miles of territory, a parcel larger than India. Tens of millions of ethnic Russians now found themselves “abroad.” Amid newfound freedoms of expression, travel, religion, and association, there was also a palpable sense of disorientation, humiliation, and drift.

In speeches and interviews, Putin rarely mentions any sense of liberation after the fall of Communism and the Soviet Union; he recalls the nineteen-nineties as a period of unremitting chaos, in which Western partners tried to force their advantages, demanding that Russia swallow everything from the eastward expansion of nato to the invasion of its Slavic allies in the former Yugoslavia. This is a common narrative, but it ignores some stubborn facts. The West welcomed Russia into the G-8 economic alliance. The violence in the Balkans was the worst in Europe since the end of the Second World War and without intervention would likely have dragged on. And Russian security concerns were hardly the only issue at stake with respect to the expansion of nato; Poland, Czechoslovakia, and other countries in the region were now sovereign and wanted protection.

“It just felt to me grotesquely unfair, if that word can be used in geopolitics, that yet again the Central Europeans were going to be screwed,” Strobe Talbott, Bill Clinton’s leading adviser on Russia and the region, said. “To tell them they had to live in a security limbo because the Russians would have hurt feelings and be frightened just didn’t hold water.” Nevertheless, American politicians did worry about how reordering the economic and security arrangements of Europe would affect a fallen power and would-be partner. Clinton and his advisers were aware that reactionary political forces in Russia—the so-called “red-brown coalition” of diehard Communists and resurgent nationalists—viewed the United States as exploitative and triumphalist and hoped to gain control of the state.

In 1996, during a summit meeting in Moscow, Clinton went for an early-morning run with Talbott in the Sparrow Hills, near Moscow State University. Clinton had known Talbott since they were students at Oxford, and confided his anxiety. He did not regret the expansion of nato or the decision, at last, to battle Serbian forces in Bosnia. But he knew that he was making Yeltsin’s political life excruciatingly difficult.

“We keep telling ol’ Boris, ‘O.K., now, here’s what you’ve got to do next—here’s some more shit for your face,’ ” Clinton told Talbott as they ran. “And that makes it real hard for him, given what he’s up against and who he’s dealing with.”

Earlier that year, Yeltsin had summoned Talbott. “I don’t like it when the U.S. flaunts its superiority,” he told him. “Russia’s difficulties are only temporary, and not only because we have nuclear weapons but also because of our economy, our culture, our spiritual strength. All that amounts to a legitimate, undeniable basis for equal treatment. Russia will rise again! I repeat: Russia will rise again.”

When the 1996 election season began, Yeltsin was polling in the single digits. Much of the country held him responsible for economic measures that seemed to help only those close to Kremlin power. For millions, reform—including the “shock therapy” pushed by Western advisers and politicians—meant a collapse in basic services, hyperinflation, corruption, kleptocratic privatization, and an economic downturn as severe as the Great Depression. Most Russians blamed not the corrosion of the old system but, rather, the corruptions of the new. Demokratiya (democracy) was popularly referred to as dermokratiya (shit-ocracy). Yeltsin, benefitting from the support of both the oligarchs and the International Monetary Fund, managed to eke out a victory against his Communist opponent, but he continued to drink heavily, despite a history of heart attacks, and, in his final years in power, was often a sorry, inebriated spectacle.

On New Year’s Eve, 1999, Yeltsin appeared on national television sitting in front of a Christmas tree. Looking blocky and moribund, he said that he was resigning. “I am sorry that many of our dreams failed to come true,” he said. “I am sorry that I did not live up to the hopes of people who believed that we could, with a single effort, a single strong push, jump out of the gray, stagnant, totalitarian past and into a bright, wealthy, civilized future. I used to believe that myself.”

A man who had resisted a coup eight years earlier no longer had the endurance for office or the political imagination to advance the cause. “I have done all I could,” he said. “A new generation is coming.” With that, he appointed as his successor Vladimir Putin, a relatively obscure intelligence agent who had been accelerated through the ranks because he had proved himself disciplined, shrewd, and, above all, loyal to his bosses.

One of Putin’s first decrees was to protect Yeltsin from future prosecution. Then he set out to stabilize the country and put it on a course of traditional Russian autocracy. “As Yeltsin started to withdraw, the old system reconsolidated, and Putin finalized this regression,” Andrei Kozyrev, the foreign minister between 1990 and 1996, said. “The fundamental problem was an inability to complete the economic and political reforms, and so we slipped back into confrontation with the West and nato.”

Putin revealed his distrust for an open system almost immediately. He saw a state that had become barely functional, and he set about restoring its authority the only way he knew how: manually, and from the top. He replaced the freewheeling anarchy of Yeltsin’s rule with something more systematized, casting aside or coöpting the oligarchs of the nineteen-nineties and elevating a cast of corrupt satraps loyal to him—an arrangement that became known as Kremlin, Inc. Every aspect of the country’s political life, including the media, was brought under the “vertical of power” that he constructed. When Yeltsin held office, privately owned television stations, such as NTV, reported on the horrific war in Chechnya and even satirized Yeltsin and other Kremlin leaders on a puppet show called “Kukly.” NTV, which was owned by an oligarch named Vladimir Gusinsky, seemed to test Putin in the beginning, airing discussions about corruption and human-rights abuses; “Kukly” added a puppet depicting the new President. Putin was not amused. Within five months of taking power, he dispatched armed Interior Ministry troops to raid Gusinsky’s headquarters; by 2001, Gusinsky had been forced to give up NTV to more obedient owners and had fled the country. Ever since, television has been under strict federal control.

Putin, in his first few years in office, was relatively solicitous of the West. He was the first foreign leader to call George W. Bush after the destruction of the World Trade Center towers. When he spoke at the Bundestag, later that month, he addressed its members in German, the language that he had spoken as a K.G.B. agent in Dresden. He even entertained the notion of Russian membership in nato.

America’s invasion of Iraq, which Putin opposed, marked a change in his thinking. Bush had made some progress with him on bilateral issues such as nuclear-arms proliferation, but by 2007 Putin had grown deeply disenchanted and came to feel that the West was treating Russia as a “vassal.” Robert Gates recalls a security conference, in Munich, in 2007, at which Putin angrily charged that the United States had “overstepped its national borders in every area” and that the expansion of nato was directed against Russian interests. “People were inclined to pass it off as a one-off,” Gates said. “But it was a harbinger.”

For Putin, it was a story of misplaced hopes and rejection: he became convinced that, no matter how accommodating he might try to be, Western powers—the United States, above all—had an innate disinclination to treat Russia as a full partner and a respected member of the international order. At home, Putin was increasingly drawn to an authoritarian, nationalist conception of the Russian state. He knew that the fall of Communism and Soviet power had left a vacuum—the lack of a “national idea” to replace Marxism-Leninism. When Putin returned to the Presidency for a third term, in 2012, he felt the need to develop a Russian ideology of his own, and called on currents that run deep in Russian political culture: nationalism, xenophobia, and social conservatism. When, four years ago, Putin endorsed anti-gay legislation, for instance, he was playing to entrenched conservative prejudices that predate Soviet Communism—perhaps not for Western-oriented intellectuals and the urban middle class but for many millions of others.

Putin was hardly surprised by the liberal umbrage voiced by the Obama Administration and other Western governments. That confrontation was the point, a means of cementing his authority at home by playing up the notion of an encircled, perpetually menaced Russian state. Although Putin grew up under Soviet atheism, he nonetheless decried secular Americans and Europeans for “rejecting their roots, including the Christian values that constitute the basis of Western civilization.” His conservatism, he insisted, “prevents movement backward and downward, into chaotic darkness and a return to a primitive state.”

He was alarmed by the Obama Administration’s embrace of the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. And he was infuriated by the U.S.-led assault on Muammar Qaddafi’s regime. In early 2011, as Libyans challenged Qaddafi, Putin was ostensibly offstage, serving as Prime Minister; his protégé Dmitry Medvedev was President, and made a crucial decision not to veto an American-backed U.N. Security Council resolution in favor of military action in Libya. In a rare public split, Putin condemned the decision, comparing the resolution to a “medieval call to the crusades.” In October, 2011, a crowd of Libyans found Qaddafi hiding in a culvert with a gold-plated 9-mm. pistol, dragged him out, and killed him—a gruesome event that was broadcast worldwide. From Putin’s perspective, this was a case study in Western intervention: stir up protests, give them rhetorical support and diplomatic cover, and, if that doesn’t work, send in the fighter jets. The epilogue comes in the form of uncontrollable violence and an inglorious end for the country’s leader. According to Mikhail Zygar, the former editor-in-chief of the independent Internet station TV Rain and the author of “All the Kremlin’s Men,” Putin absorbed the death of Qaddafi as an object lesson: weakness and compromise were impermissible. “When he was a pariah, no one touched him,” Zygar wrote. “But as soon as he opened up he was not only overthrown but killed in the street like a mangy old cur.”

Putin also regarded the anti-Kremlin, pro-democracy demonstrations in Moscow, which started in 2011, as a rehearsal for an uprising that had to be thwarted. Together with the upheavals abroad, they compounded his grievances against the West. Obama’s national-security adviser at the time, Tom Donilon, observed that Putin’s concerns were then focussed on domestic political stability and perceived foreign threats to it. He was convinced that “there were efforts under way to undermine his regime,” Donilon said. “From the outset of his second run as President, in my judgment, he was bringing Russia to a posture of pretty active hostility toward the United States and the West.” In September, 2013, after Putin declined requests to turn over Edward Snowden, Obama cancelled a planned summit in Moscow. “The communication really broke after that,” Donilon said. He saw Putin steadily remove non-intelligence personnel from his orbit. “In sharp contrast to the Chinese situation, there’s not a Russian national-security ‘system,’ ” he said. “He works with a very small group of individuals, namely, former K.G.B. and F.S.B. people.”

Dissent has now been effectively marginalized. Opposition candidates are frequently kept off the ballot on legal technicalities, and, when they do make it on, they are denied media coverage, let alone the “administrative resources” enjoyed by pro-Kremlin politicians. Some thirty journalists have been murdered in Russia in the past decade and a half; human-rights groups that receive funding from abroad are registered in Moscow as “foreign agents.” And contemporary Russian television is not only compliant but celebratory. “Imagine you have two dozen TV channels and it is all Fox News,” Vladimir Milov, a former deputy energy minister under Putin and now a critic, said.

Yet those channels bear little resemblance to the dreary Soviet broadcasts with their stilted language and shabby production values. Just as Putin no longer fills prison camps with countless “enemies of the people,” as Stalin did, but, rather, makes a chilling example of a famous few, like the businessman Mikhail Khodorkovsky or the group Pussy Riot, his propagandists have taken their cue from foreign forms: magazine shows, shout-fests, game shows, and reality shows. There are many figures in public life who are not permitted to appear on any talk show or news program. Russians can still find independent information on Facebook and various Web sites; critical books and magazines are available in stores and online; Echo of Moscow, a liberal radio station, hangs on. But, even in the Internet era, more than eighty per cent of Russians get their news from television. Manipulation of TV coverage is a crucial factor in Putin’s extraordinarily high popularity ratings, typically in excess of eighty per cent—ratings that Donald Trump both admires and envies.

In October, 2012, on the occasion of Putin’s sixtieth birthday, Dmitry Kiselyov, the host of “News of the Week,” a favorite TV show of Putin’s, delivered a long encomium to the President: “In terms of the scope of his activities, Putin can be compared to only one of his predecessors in the twentieth century—Stalin.” NTV aired a documentary, “Visiting Putin,” that sent a broadcaster to his office and his house on the outskirts of Moscow. Although well-informed critics have said that Putin is worth tens of billions of dollars and has twenty residences at his disposal, the program portrayed him as a near-ascetic, who wakes at eight-thirty, lifts weights, swims long distances, eats a modest breakfast (beet juice, porridge, raw quail eggs), and works deep into the night.

“All these TV genres emphasize the stature of Putin, as being above everybody and everything—not just the ultimate boss but the embodiment of Russian statehood,” Masha Lipman, the editor of the journal Counterpoint, said. The most important political space is not the grounds of the Kremlin. It is the space within the President’s skull.

“A well-known person once said, ‘You can get much farther with a kind word and a Smith & Wesson than you can with just a kind word,’ ” Putin says in “President,” a long documentary that aired on state television in 2015. “Unfortunately, he was right.” Later in the documentary, the host asks Putin if he thinks that the West fears Russia, because a “once failing state” is now “suddenly a powerful political player.” He calls Putin “the leader, if I may say, of the conservative part of both European and American society.”

Putin accepts both premises. “The so-called establishment, the political and economic élites of these countries, they like us only when we are poor and standing there with a beggar’s bowl,” he says. “As soon as we start talking about our interests and they start feeling some element of geopolitical competition, well, they don’t like that.”

In February, 2014, hours after President Victor Yanukovych of Ukraine, weakened by months of protests, fled Kiev, Putin made the decision to invade Crimea. He feared that Ukraine would turn its back on Russia and gravitate toward Europe. It was a way for Putin to signal, loudly and rudely, that he was finished going along with the Western-led order. It was personal as well. Michael Morell, a former deputy director of the C.I.A., said that the fall of Yanukovych led Putin to worry about his own power and well-being. “It happened in the heart of the Slavic world, and he could not allow it to become a precedent for a similar movement in Russia against him,” Morell said. “He had to crush it.”

Putin and members of his circle also saw the Syrian civil war as an opportunity to halt a trend that had started with the invasion of Iraq and continued through the downfall of dictators in Egypt and Libya. A former senior U.S. official who has interacted with Russians said, “There was this period of time when the United States, in Putin’s view, was able to use international institutions to take on regimes that we found offensive, right through Libya, and Putin was determined to put a stake in the ground in Syria, to have Russia be at the table, and be able to resist the international community’s efforts to continue this pattern of conduct.” As Russia’s Defense Minister, Sergey Shoigu, remarked last month, Russia’s intervention in Syria “helped solve the geopolitical task of breaking the chain of ‘color revolutions.’ ” Russian television, of course, covered the siege of Aleppo as an enlightened act of liberation, free of any brutality or abuses.

In the United States, the issue of what to do about Russia was a growing point of contention between the Pentagon and the White House. Ukraine’s government wanted advanced weaponry to help battle Russian-backed rebels. Evelyn Farkas, the Pentagon’s most senior policy officer for Russia, strongly supported the request; Obama and others on his national-security team turned it down. Instead, the U.S. provided “nonlethal” aid, including vehicles, radar, and body armor. In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in 2014, Farkas argued for greater American force, calling Russia’s actions “an affront to the international order that we and our allies have worked to build since the end of the Cold War.”

The Administration believed, with considerable justification, that escalating the conflict would provoke retaliation from Russia, push Putin into a corner, and—since Putin would never let the rebels suffer a battlefield defeat—prove costly for Ukraine. But Farkas disagreed: “We just ignore everything the Russians do in Ukraine because, well, that’s Ukraine and the stakes are so high for Russia there. They wouldn’t risk it in the U.S.” Finally, she gave up trying to convince Obama. “I was so done,” she said. “I was so tired of fighting.” She resigned in October, 2015, and eventually became a foreign-policy adviser to Hillary Clinton, who had sometimes favored the use of military force when Obama did not. “The crazy thing was, when I joined the Clinton campaign, I was, like, Great, I’m not going to have to fight anymore, because she got it on Russia,” Farkas said. “Then it just got worse.”

General Valery Gerasimov was an exponent of Moscow’s “hybrid war” strategy.

4. HYBRID WAR

Putin rarely uses a computer, but he has moved his country into the digital age. Russia was once a technological laggard: the Soviets did not connect to the global Internet until 1990, and the state security services were so befuddled by the technology that, according to “The Red Web,” by Andrei Soldatov and Irina Borogan, agents demanded that Relcom, Russia’s first commercial Internet Service Provider, print out every communication that crossed its network. (Engineers rebelled, and the order was abandoned.) By 1996, however, a new generation of hackers in Russia had achieved the first state-directed penetration of America’s military network, pilfering tens of thousands of files, including military-hardware designs, maps of military installations, and troop configurations. In 2008, according to “Dark Territory,” a history of cyberwar by Fred Kaplan, Russian hackers accomplished a feat that Pentagon officials considered almost impossible: breaching a classified network that wasn’t even connected to the public Internet. Apparently, Russian spies had supplied cheap thumb drives, stocked with viruses, to retail kiosks near natoheadquarters in Kabul, betting, correctly, that a U.S. serviceman or woman would buy one and insert it into a secure computer. In the past decade, cyber tactics have become an essential component of Russia’s efforts to exert influence over its neighbors.

Late one evening in the spring of 2007, President Toomas Hendrik Ilves of Estonia was at home using his laptop computer. He had trouble getting online. The news sites were down. The banks were down. Government sites were down. The President figured that it must be some kind of technical glitch. “The first reaction is not ‘We’re under attack,’ ” he said recently. But, after a few calls, he realized that someone was attacking one of Estonia’s core assets.

The birthplace of Skype and the home of other tech firms, Estonia is known in technology circles as “eStonia”; it is one of the most wired countries in the world. But Estonia was involved in a conflict with Russia over plans to move a Second World War-era statue of a Soviet soldier out of the center of Tallinn, the capital. Estonians regarded it as a symbol of occupation. The Russian government had warned publicly that moving it would be a grave offense to history and “disastrous for Estonians.”

On April 27th, the statue was moved. Almost immediately, commentators in Russian-language chat rooms posted instructions on how to become a “script kiddie,” an amateur hacker. The attackers did not need to “hack” Estonia’s sites, exactly; they simply swamped them with a “distributed denial of service”—DDoS—assault, which continued for two weeks. Investigators never pinpointed the source of the attack, but Ilves, who left the Presidency in October, 2016, believes that it was an alliance between members of the Russian government and organized crime. “I call it a public-private partnership,” he said wryly. “It was a state actor that paid mafiosos.”

Although the incident barely registered in international headlines, it was a landmark event: a state-backed cyberattack for political purposes. “What Estonia showed was that Russia was going to react in a new but aggressive way to perceived political slights,” Michael Sulmeyer, a senior Pentagon official in charge of cyber policy under Obama, said. “What was the offending act? The Estonians moved a statue.”

Russia was acquiring a reputation, in defense circles, for ambition, technical acumen, and speed. Barely a year after the Estonia attack, during a conflict with Georgia over the territory of South Ossetia, Russian tanks and planes crossed into the disputed territory at the same moment that hackers broke into fifty-four Web sites serving the government, media, and banks. They stole military information and immobilized the nation’s Internet. Georgian officers struggled to send orders to troops, and bewildered citizens had no way to find out what was happening.

The Georgia campaign was “one of the first times you’ve seen conventional ground operations married with cyber activity,” Sulmeyer said. “It showed not just an understanding that these techniques could be useful in combined ops but that the Russians were willing to do them. These guys implemented.”

“Thanks, but I’m fine.”

And yet Russian military planners and officials in the Kremlin regarded Georgia as a failure in the realm of international propaganda. Although Russia prevailed militarily, its narrative was overshadowed by the Georgian one from the first minutes of the campaign. For Russia, the five-day conflict represented a “total defeat in the information space,” said Pavel Zolotarev, a retired major general in the Russian Army, who is now a professor at the Academy of Military Sciences. “Our television showed how the shelling started, the incursion of Georgian forces, and so on,” Zolotarev, who helped draft Russia’s national-security doctrine in the nineteen-nineties, said. “These pictures were shown in the West two days later—but as if Russia were doing the shelling, attacking Georgia.” Russian generals took this lesson to heart, and began to study how to use the media and other instruments to wage “information war,” later putting what they learned into practice in Ukraine and then Syria.

The United States, meanwhile, had its own notable cyberwar success. In 2008, in tandem with Israeli intelligence, the U.S. launched the first digital attack on another country’s critical infrastructure, deploying a “worm,” known as Stuxnet, that was designed to cause centrifuges in Iran to spin out of control and thereby delay its nuclear development.

Yet diplomatic concerns inhibited some of the United States’ active measures. The Obama Administration had a “reset” policy with Russia, forging agreements and coöperating on select issues, despite an over-all increase in tension. “Cyber was an area where we were trying to work with Russia,” Evelyn Farkas, the Pentagon official, said. “That’s the irony. We were meeting with their big spies, trying to develop some kind of arms control for cyber.”

When Robert Knake arrived as the director of cybersecurity policy at the National Security Council, in 2011, the White House had a formal initiative to combat Chinese hacking, known as the Counter-China strategy. Knake recalled, “The question was: ‘O.K., now, what’s the counter-Russia plan? And the counter-Iran plan?’ ” The difficulty was that, in the aftermath of Stuxnet, the U.S. needed Iran’s coöperation on diplomatic priorities. From 2011 to 2013, Iranian-backed hackers waged a sustained DDoS attack on dozens of American banks and financial-services companies, but the U.S. didn’t respond in kind, partly because the Administration was negotiating with Iran to curb its nuclear program. “If we had unleashed the fury in response to that DDoS attack, I don’t know if we would have gotten an Iran deal,” Knake said. In other cases, the Administration declined to respond forcefully so that it could retain the option of deploying similar means on other countries. “As long as we think we’re getting more value from this set of rules than we’re losing, then this is the set of rules we want to promote,” Knake said.

A new doctrine was taking shape, under which Russia sought to study the nefarious tools of the West, as it understood them, so as to counteract them at home and put them into practice abroad. One indication of what that might look like came in February, 2013, when, in the pages of the Military-Industrial Courier—a journal with a tiny yet influential readership of Russian military strategists—Valery Gerasimov, the Russian chief of general staff, published an article with the anodyne title “The Value of Science in Prediction.” The article identified and urged the adoption of a Western strategy that involved military, technological, media, political, and intelligence tactics that would destabilize an enemy at minimal cost. The strategy, which came to be known as “hybrid war,” was an amalgam that states have used for generations, but the text took on the status of a legend, and is now known in international military circles as the Gerasimov doctrine.

Gerasimov is sixty-one years old, and is always photographed in a stiff, forest-green military uniform and with a perpetually sagging frown. He trained as a tank commander, and then climbed the military hierarchy; he led the Fifty-eighth Army during the Second Chechen War. In the article for Military-Industrial Courier, Gerasimov suggested that, in the future, wars will be fought with a four-to-one ratio of nonmilitary to military measures. The former, he wrote, should include efforts to shape the political and social landscape of the adversary through subversion, espionage, propaganda, and cyberattacks. His essay, written in the shadow of the Arab Spring, cited the anarchy and violence that erupted in Libya and Syria as proof that, when faced with the combination of pressure and interference, a “perfectly thriving state can, in a matter of months, and even days, be transformed into an arena of fierce armed conflict, become a victim of foreign intervention, and sink into a web of chaos, humanitarian catastrophe, and civil war.”

Such events were “typical of warfare in the twenty-first century,” he wrote. “The role of nonmilitary means of achieving political and strategic goals has grown, and, in many cases, they have exceeded the power of force of weapons in their effectiveness.”

Pavel Zolotarev, the retired Russian general, explained that, when Gerasimov’s essay was published, “we had come to the conclusion, having analyzed the actions of Western countries in the post-Soviet space—first of all the United States—that manipulation in the information sphere is a very effective tool.” Previously, one had to use “grandfather-style methods: scatter leaflets, throw around some printed materials, manipulate the radio or television,” Zolotarev said. “But, all of a sudden, new means have appeared.”

Gerasimov’s prescriptions began to look prophetic a year later, when Russia annexed Crimea in a quick operation that caught U.S. officials by surprise and contravened international law. Russian-made propaganda whipped up pro-Moscow sentiment in a population that was already wary of Ukrainian political leaders in Kiev and had deep, historical ties with Russia. Unidentified soldiers (the so-called “little green men”) surrounded Ukrainian bases in Crimea, and within days Russia had pulled off a hastily organized, stage-managed referendum.

Even with the rise of new technologies, the underlying truth about such operations hasn’t changed. They are less a way to conjure up something out of nothing than to stir a pot that is already bubbling. In the U.S., a strategy like the alleged hacking of the Democrats was merely an effort to deepen an existing state of disarray and distrust. “For something to happen, many factors have to come together at once,” said Alexander Sharavin, the head of a military research institute and a member of the Academy of Military Sciences, in Moscow, where Gerasimov often speaks. “If you go to Great Britain, for example, and tell them the Queen is bad, nothing will happen, there will be no revolution, because the necessary conditions are absent—there is no existing background for this operation.” But, Sharavin said, “in America those preconditions existed.”

As tensions with Russia rose over the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria, in early 2014, the U.S. was stung by a tactic common in Moscow politics: the weaponized leak. While the U.S. and the European Union discussed the details of a potential transitional government in Ukraine, an aide to the Russian deputy prime minister tweeted a reference to part of a wiretapped conversation, posted soon afterward to YouTube, between Victoria Nuland, a U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, and her colleague Geoffrey Pyatt, the U.S. Ambassador in Ukraine. Nuland is heard saying “Fuck the E.U.”—a line that the Russians knew would cause difficulties between the Americans and their E.U. counterparts. The State Department called the leak “a new low in Russian tradecraft.” Asked what form of penalty was extracted from Russia, Michael McFaul, the Ambassador to Moscow during the Obama Administration, said, “To the best of my knowledge, there was none. I think that was a mistake.”

Obama’s adviser Benjamin Rhodes said that Russia’s aggressiveness had accelerated since the first demonstrations on Maidan Square, in Kiev. “When the history books are written, it will be said that a couple of weeks on the Maidan is where this went from being a Cold War-style competition to a much bigger deal,” he said. “Putin’s unwillingness to abide by any norms began at that point. It went from provocative to disrespectful of any international boundary.”

In the fall of 2014, a hacking group known as the Dukes entered an unclassified computer system at the U.S. State Department and gained enough control so that, as one official put it, they “owned” the system. In security circles, the Dukes—also referred to as Cozy Bear—were believed to be directed by the Russian government. Very little is known about the size and composition of Russia’s team of state cyberwarriors. In 2013, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that it was forming “scientific” and “information operations” battalions. A defense official later explained their purpose as “disrupting the information networks of the probable enemy.” Oleg Demidov, an expert on information security and cybercrime, and a consultant at the PIR-Center, a research institute in Moscow, said, “At the time, this idea was met with laughter. But this was something real, these units were indeed formed, and staffed by graduates of the country’s leading technical universities.” The next year, the Russian military expanded its public recruitment of young programmers; social-media ads for the “Research Squadron of the Russian Federation” depicted a soldier putting down a rifle and turning to a keyboard, accompanied by a heavy-metal soundtrack.

A retired K.G.B. colonel recently told the magazine Ogonyok that Russia had about a thousand people working in military and security operations online. According to a detailed report that appeared last November in the well-regarded online publication Meduza, several hundred technical specialists have left commercial firms to work for state-run cyber teams. A Defense Ministry spokesperson refused to confirm any details, telling a Meduza correspondent that the topic is secret, “so no one can see how we might apply these methods,” and warning against publication: “Don’t risk doing anything further—don’t put yourself in the crosshairs.”

After penetrating the State Department, the Dukes moved on to the unclassified computer network that serves the executive office of the President. (The network manages, for instance, details of his movements.) By February, 2015, the increasing intensity of Russian intrusions into sensitive political targets had raised alarms in Washington, and Clapper, the director of national intelligence, told a Senate hearing that the “Russian cyberthreat is more severe than we have previously assessed.”

European officials voice similar concerns. The Directorate-General for External Security, the French spy agency, is reportedly worried that Russian spies, hackers, and others are working to help Marine Le Pen, the Presidential candidate of the far-right National Front Party. Russian state media have suggested that one of her opponents, Emmanuel Macron, is a tool of American banks and has a secret gay

Knockout of the peroxiredoxin 5 homologue PFAOP does not affect the artemisinin susceptibility of Plasmodium falciparum.

Sci Rep. 2017 Jun 30;7(1):4410

Authors: Djuika CF, Staudacher V, Sanchez CP, Lanzer M, Deponte M

Abstract
Artemisinins are the current mainstay of malaria chemotherapy. Their exact mode of action is an ongoing matter of debate, and several factors have recently been reported to affect an early stage of artemisinin resistance of the most important human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Here, we identified a locus on chromosome 7 that affects the artemisinin susceptibility of P. falciparum in a quantitative trait locus analysis of a genetic cross between strains 7G8 and GB4. This locus includes the peroxiredoxin gene PFAOP. However, steady-state kinetic data with recombinant PfAOP do not support a direct interaction between this peroxidase and the endoperoxide artemisinin. Furthermore, neither the overexpression nor the deletion of the encoding gene affected the IC50 values for artemisinin or the oxidants diamide and tert-butyl hydroperoxide. Thus, PfAOP is dispensable for blood stage parasite survival, and the correlation between the artemisinin susceptibility and chromosome 7 is probably based on another gene within the identified locus.

          NASA unveils its asteroid defense plans   
Humanity could face one less doomsday scenario if NASA has its way. On Friday, the space agency announced plans to redirect the course of a small asteroid approaching Earth, as part of the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), according to a NASA press release. The release notes that asteroids hit Earth nearly every day, but most are small enough to burn up in the atmosphere. But the DART project -- a joint effort between NASA and the John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland -- is for the asteroids that are too big to break up -- those that could have severe consequences for the Earth if they hit. "DART would be NASA's first mission to demonstrate what's known as the kinetic impactor technique -- striking the asteroid to shift its orbit -- to defend against a potential future asteroid impact," said Lindley Johnson, NASA's planetary defense officer in Washington, in the press release.

          Understanding Radiant Heat Transfer   
Understanding Radiant Heat Transfer
Thermal radiation is electromagnetic radiation generated by the thermal motion of charged particles in matter. All matter with a temperature greater than absolute zero emits thermal radiation. When the temperature of the body is greater than absolute zero, interatomic collisions cause the kinetic energy of the atoms or molecules to change. This results in charge-acceleration and/or dipole oscillation which produces electromagnetic radiation, and the wide spectrum of radiation reflects the wide spectrum of energies and accelerations that occur even at a single temperature. Examples of thermal radiation include the visible light and infrared light emitted by an incandescent light bulb, the infrared radiation emitted by animals and detectable with an infrared camera, and the cosmic microwave background radiation. Thermal radiation is different from thermal convection and thermal conduction—a person near a raging bonfire feels radiant heating from the fire, even if the surrounding air is very cold. Sunlight is part of thermal radiation generated by the hot plasma of the Sun. The Earth also emits thermal radiation, but at a much lower intensity and different spectral distribution (infrared rather than visible) because it is cooler. The Earth’s absorption of solar radiation, followed by its outgoing thermal radiation are the two most important processes that determine the temperature and climate of the Earth. If a radiation-emitting object meets the physical characteristics of a black body in thermodynamic equilibrium, the radiation is called blackbody radiation. Planck’s law describes the spectrum of blackbody radiation, which depends only on the object’s temperature. Wien’s displacement law determines the most likely frequency of the emitted radiation, and the Stefan–Boltzmann law gives the radiant intensity.

          Stroke Recovery in Stoke on Trent   

“When you have a stroke, you must talk slowly to be understood and I have discovered that when I talk slowly, people listen. They think I’m going to say something important.” - Kirk Douglas


Just the very mention of the word stroke strikes fear into the minds of most people. It conjures up images of disability, or losing the ability to speak and, in severe cases, even to death. One stroke survivor told me that after suffering a stroke his life quality had changed so dramatically that he sometimes became so depressed and frustrated that he had moments when he regretted having survived. But there is hope, and there is help available too.

Harry (not his real name) was the last person one would have thought was a high risk candidate. He has never smoked or drank, carried no extra weight and has enjoyed a stress free life. He is in his seventies and his wife in her mid eighties. One morning, without any warning, he slumped over the breakfast table. Until the stroke he had enjoyed good health. Harry is a musician. He had been an accomplished organist and choirmaster, teaching the organ and playing in his local parish church. His enthusiasm lead to the installation of a small pipe organ in his house. It is fair to say that music was his life. The stroke has left him incapable of using his left arm and leg. He will never play again. He now depends almost totally on his wife which adds to his frustration. He is now dependent on mobility aids. There is much help available. If stairs are a problem then a stair lift is the answer, used in conjunction with other aids such as a wheelchair, walking sticks and frames and a bath lift, together with regular physiotherapy.

Harry and his wife have now had the stress of moving home to Stoke-on-Trent to receive excellent care based at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire where people suffering Stroke are more likely to survive than anywhere else in the country and also to be near to family as extra support.

Our Stroke service in Stoke on Trent

A stroke occurs when the blood supply is cut off to the brain. Blood carries essential nutrients and oxygen to the brain, and without a blood supply, brain cells can be damaged or destroyed, and are not be able to do their job. Strokes occur in different parts of the brain, and can result in damage to your body, dependent on which part of the brain has been affected. For example, if the part of the brain which controls how limbs move is damaged, the ability to move can be damaged or even lost.

When a person shows symptoms of having a stroke, speed is essential and ringing 999 should never be delayed. Much is being done on TV and in the media to alert the public to F.A.S.T.
Just how common are strokes?
                                Males                   Females               Total
UK                          19,287                   30,079                   49,366
England                15,824                   24,743                   40,567
N. Ireland            489                         750                         1,239
Scotland              1,889                     2,875                     4,764
Wales                   1,085                     1,711                     2,796
It is interesting to note that women appear to be at greater risk of stroke than men.
How can I reduce my risk of having a stroke?
Most medical information suggests that the risk of having a stroke can be reduced by five actions:
Blood pressure 57-365 (Year 3)

Stopping Smoking
Cutting down on how much alcohol you drink
Eating a healthy diet - cut down on salt and fatty foods
Taking regular exercise
Having regular blood pressure checks



Are there signs of hope for stoke patients?

According to the BBC News website, one current experimental procedure involves injecting stem cells into the damaged area of the brain. Science correspondent Pallab Ghosh reports that a UK company is applying for permission to transplant stem cells made from human foetal tissue into the brains of stroke patients. ReNeuron, based in Guildford, has told the BBC that they have what they are calling ‘convincing evidence’ that damaged brain cells, as a result of a stroke, could potentially be regenerated.

Professor Keith Muir of Glasgow University has expressed “surprise” at the moderate improvements in the five patients trialled. However, he stresses that it is too soon to tell if the progress can be attributed to the procedure. The results will be presented at the European Stroke Conference in London.
One patient, 80 year old Frank Marsh, has reported encouraging changes in his condition. The normal period during which some improvement may naturally occur following a stroke is twelve months. Frank had his stroke five years ago. His wife said that he had reached a plateau and progress had stopped. Following the treatment he has gained some hand movement and can now dress himself, tie his shoe laces and hold on to things. To regain such simple actions, which the rest of us take for granted, must bring huge hope to the stroke victim.
Like my friend Harry, Frank is a musician and shares the frustration of no longer being able to play. In Frank’s words “I’d like to get back to my piano and walk a bit steadier and further.”

What are stem cells?
Stem cells are the body’s raw materials from which all other cells, having a specialised function, develop. If we think of the cell stems as the ‘parent’ then as the cells divide ‘daughter’ cells are produced. These either become new stem cells (self-renewal) or become specialised cells (differentiation) with a specific function such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle or bone. Cells can be genetically manipulated to regenerate or repair diseased or damaged tissues.

Who may benefit from stem cell therapy?
In the broad term, we all do because certain stem cells can be used to test the safety and effectiveness of new drugs.

More specifically, benefits may be seen in patients suffering spinal cord injuries, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, burns, cancer and stroke.

Amongst the latest reported research, involving injecting stem cells into the area of damaged brain of stroke survivors is not without controversy. Scientific research involving both human and animal research and resources is always subject to ethical questioning.

The stark fact is that stroke survivors are currently not going to make a full recovery but who knows what future treatment may achieve. It is more a case of learning to adapt to the situation, aided by some excellent support from the heath experts, suppliers of mobility aids and, very importantly, self help and dedicated carers. It is worth repeating that physical symptoms are not the only obstacle to
be overcome. Understandably, patients experience levels of depression and frustration, sometimes taking this out on those who are caring for them, ironically often those to whom they are the closest such as their partner or children.

What help is out there for carers?

As well as the GP and Occupational Therapists, informed information is available from organisations whose knowledge is based on first-hand experience.
  
‘One in ten people in the UK is a carer.Being a carer can be a kind, admirable and selfless act. At times though, it can be challenging and carers have told us that they sometimes feel overwhelmed,exhausted and isolated. Stroke is a sudden and serious condition and can come as a shock. Suddenly seeing a loved one unwell can be very upsetting. You might not understand what has happened or may find it difficult to know how to support them. It is natural to feel overwhelmed, but as you come to terms with what has happened, you might want to know how you can help.’

Stroke exercises and treatment

Moving around safely is taken for granted, unless you suffer a stroke. Some survivors experience paralysis of an arm and/or leg, and balance issues add to the difficulties. Some 40% of survivors suffer serious falls within a year of suffering their stroke. Weakness in a muscle or group of muscles results from the inability of brain signals to get through and of course lack of movement results in the muscles becoming weaker. Exercise and movement is essential and a regular programme of exercises set out by an expert physiotherapist is very important. Many of these exercises can be done whilst sitting or lying down. Swimming can be excellent, but of course always under correct supervision. Walking, bending and stretching are all beneficial. Experts warn against fatigue and all exercise regimes should be tailored to the individuals needs.

Treatment is a combination of therapy and medicines. In addition to the motion exercises, splinting or casting can be used to give support or to straighten a foot twisted by muscle weakness. The release of chemicals which cause muscle contraction can be inhibited by the use of botulinum toxin.


Stroke and Kinetics

One other area of interesting therapy is that of kinetics. The ability to use kinetics or 3D pictures of movement, may hold a link to a new procedure to assist with the rehabilitation of stroke survivors by gait analysis, the study of how people walk. The leading research is taking place at Missouri University. It is claimed that cameras installed in people’s homes to collect data and analyse their movement may be able to act as an early warning system to health issues including falling and mobility impairment, providing advanced movement analysis for physiotherapy.  

Meanwhile, at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, UK, Kinect games are being used to help rehabilitate stroke patients. Titles such as Kinectimals and Kinect Bowling help redevelop coordination following a trauma. Doctors say that the ability to focus on natural movements and activities is vastly beneficial over the traditional physiotherapy where patients would be stretched and pulled to rebuild sensation and muscle strength.


There are also mobility exercises for rehabilitation and stroke recovery based around neurophysiotherapy.  An enterprisinig firm in New Zealand has combined clinical therapeutics developed at Otago in New Zealand ,which is a worldwide centre of excellence in falls rehabilitation, with a computer to help rehabilitate upper body function after a stroke.

Here's a video of it in action.



In conclusion, suffering a stroke is a cruel and debilitating trauma but there is a great deal of help available and the future holds some exciting possibilities to give hope to all, both survivors and carers.  If you would like to visit your local Stoke mobility aids showroom we can show you some of the products that other stroke survivors have found useful, indeed necessary in their new phase of life.

          1/35 US M1A1 Abrams MBT   
1/35 US M1A1 Abrams MBTThis is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

The first M1 tank was delivered to the U.S. Army in February 1980, and was officially named and christened the "Abrams" by the widow of the late General Creighton Abrams. This new Abrams tank benefited from the latest technological wonders of the time, giving it enormous advantage on any battlefield. The turret, being very angular and squat, had a very roomy interior. This angular design was combined with Chobham armour for excellent protection against the kinetic energy from hollow charge projectiles. The hull sides and rear panels are vertical, with only the front angled to deflect anti-tank shots. The 1500 horsepower Avco-Lycoming AGT-1500 turbine engine provides remarkable speed and maneuverability plus being regarded as one of the quietest tank powerplants available today. During the mid 1980's the M1 underwent an improvement program to upgrade the 105mm gun to the type M256 120mm smoothbore cannon. The armour at the frontal area of the lower hull front and turret was also increased, and it was given the new designation of "M1A1." Other improvements are seen in the enlarged rear turret bustle stowage rack, a new style crosswind sensor, a revised gunner's sight mount, plus reinforced suspension and transmission unit. Both the M1 and M1A1 Abrams were deployed during the Persian Gulf Conflict and they demonstrated outstanding performance and combat success.

          Port Talbot Wh 2-up '25'   

As is now usual, Team Grumpy prepared intensively for the 48h prior to this event: a preparation which entails consumption of takeaway curry and Belgian beer, while sitting on a sofa watching TV.  Team Grumpy dispensed with rule #2, by tinkering with 'Grumpy' Art's chainring bolts the day before the race.  On the morning of the event both riders woke feeling surprisingly chipper considering the quantity of preparation, but were were somewhat disappointed to see thick fog blanketing southern Wales.  Fortunately the weather lifted, leaving clear sunny conditions with a light but rising wind by the time the team convoy reached the race HQ at Resolven.

The Team Manager was a little concerned that the team might set forth into conditions of poor visibility, but really the race was held in the best conditions for several years - sunny and quite warm.   Grumpy Bob and 'Grumpy' Art squeezed into the new skinsuits, which proved surprisingly tight, shiny and (fortunately) stretchy. Unfortunately the Team Grumpy sartorial adviser had made a less excellent decision regarding the matching overshoes, which turned out to fit the shoes well, but were surprisingly baggy round the ankles (shades of verterans' baggy skinsuits).  The new overshoes were quickly discarded in favour of trusty old Pro overshoes (the rather pervy looking black shiny variety), and Team Grumpy set off to warm up on the second half of the course.  But not before having trouble with the damned numbers which were difficult to affix using the bendy safety pins (not helped by the shiny skinsuit fabric).
As the warmup was nearly complete, Grumpy Bob suffered a front wheel puncture.  The Team returned the Team Convoy in as much haste as the rapidly softening front tyre permitted.  Astonishingly the tyre was changed and new number pins obtained and fitted in time to get to the start line in time to see the team in front of us start.
After an awkward start, as a car on the roundabout stalled the riders, Team Grumpy performed pretty much as expected: a good showing of 2-up technique with the overall speed hampered by inadequate training (illness and injury most recently).  That being said, Team Grumpy kept up a pretty good pace over the first half of the event, which is held on a section of dual carriageway, and really only found the second half, which is on an older road with a pretty damaged road surface and quite a bit of climbing a bit challenging – it was here that the defects in Team preparations were exposed. At around 18 miles, and just short of the third turn, Grumpy Bob looked over his shoulder and noticed he'd dropped 'Grumpy' Art on the climb - somewhat discomfited by this, he eased off to get his team mate back on.  What wasn't apparent until the finish was that 'Grumpy' Art's chain had unshipped at the bottom of the climb.  Grumpy Bob's opinion is that there's no place for changing to the small ring when time trialling, but who notices that advice...
The Team Manager was out on the course and took some video footage - this'll be uploaded to the Team Grumpy YouTube channel in due course.  She did, however, comment that Team Grumpy appeared to be  sauntering rather than racing, and accusation both riders were rather horrified by.  Such is team management.
Team Grumpy crossed the line in 1:01:25.  It was enough for 14th place.

          Agglomerative Clustering of Growing Squares. (arXiv:1706.10195v1 [cs.DS])   

Authors: Thom Castermans, Bettina Speckmann, Frank Staals, Kevin Verbeek

We study an agglomerative clustering problem motivated by interactive glyphs in geo-visualization. Consider a set of disjoint square glyphs on an interactive map. When the user zooms out, the glyphs grow in size relative to the map, possibly with different speeds. When two glyphs intersect, we wish to replace them by a new glyph that captures the information of the intersecting glyphs.

We present a fully dynamic kinetic data structure that maintains a set of $n$ disjoint growing squares. Our data structure uses $O(n (\log n \log\log n)^2)$ space, supports queries in worst case $O(\log^3 n)$ time, and updates in $O(\log^7 n)$ amortized time. This leads to an $O(n\alpha(n)\log^7 n)$ time algorithm to solve the agglomerative clustering problem. This is a significant improvement over the current best $O(n^2)$ time algorithms.

          NASA concept video shows how we might save Earth from rogue asteroids   
TwitterFacebook

We've seen those blockbuster movies in which scientists lay out plans to save Earth from an incoming asteroid, it's always complicated, risky, and dependent on a bit of luck. But what would really happen in real life? 

NASA thinks it has an answer, and the space agency demonstrated that solution in a concept video (below) posted on Friday. 

SEE ALSO: This is how NASA spots potentially dangerous asteroids near Earth

The video shows NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) vehicle deliberately crashing itself into one component of the binary asteroid system called Didymos. 

"DART would be NASA’s first mission to demonstrate what's known as the kinetic impactor technique — striking the asteroid to shift its orbit — to defend against a potential future asteroid impact," Lindley Johnson, planetary defense officer at NASA, said in a statement in June.  Read more...

          Foot and Ankle Injuries in Soccer and the Utilization of Neuromuscular Control within the Rehab Setting   
The moment your athlete goes down during a training session or game holding their ankle/foot, Athletic Trainers (ATs) brace for the worst and hope for the best. By the time we can run out onto the field or court to quickly and thoroughly evaluate the extent of injury, we begin to think ahead and plan the rehab that will be necessary to return the athlete to full play.

An estimated 2 million acute ankle sprains occur each year in the United States alone, resulting in an annual aggregate healthcare cost of $2 billion. An ankle sprain is the most common injury in athletic populations and accounts for up to 30 percent of sports injuries (Waterman et al., 2010).

Ankle

In 2016, 12 percent of all injuries were related to the ankle/foot for the athletes of the LA Galaxy soccer team. Of those foot and ankle injuries, the most common to cause an athlete to miss time were contusions (50 percent), followed by sprains (12.5 percent), 5th metatarsal fractures (12.5 percent), impingements (12.5 percent) and loose bodies (12.5 percent). Overall, foot/ankle injuries cost the LA Galaxy $113,289 due to missed time in 2016.

In the general population, nearly half of all ankle sprains (49.3 percent) occur during athletic activity. The sport most commonly associated with ankle sprain is basketball, accounting for 20.3 percent of all sprains, followed by football (9.3 percent) and soccer (7.9 percent) (Waterman et al., 2010). Research has found that the peak incidence rate of ankle sprains occurs in individuals between 10 and 19 years of age, and that this age group experiences a 6 to 9-fold greater risk of ankle sprain than those in the 55 to 59-year-old age group (Waterman et al., 2010).

Recent research has shown that inversion ankle sprains are the most common injuries in soccer (Mohammadi, 2007). This type of ankle injury primarily occurs during plantar flexion and inversion of the foot. If this type of injury is not dealt with appropriately during and after the rehab process, these athletes are put at a higher risk of reinjuring the same ankle. Once the initial stages of inflammation subside and the athlete can ambulate without pain, proprioceptive training becomes a critical part of the rehab process and even more important in preventing potential ankle injuries in the future.

The evertor muscles have been suggested to play an important role in preventing ligamentous injuries, as research has found that evertor muscle weakness is a component of recurrent ankle sprain. Evertor muscle weakness in athletes who have had previous injury could be the result of an interruption of the muscle’s nerve supply or the result of selective inhibition of the invertor’s ability to start moving in the direction of the initial injury (Mohammadi, 2007). It has been postulated that eccentric contraction of these muscles provide dynamic support to the lateral ligaments of the ankle and potentially resists ankle sprains. With that in mind, strength training of the evertor muscles, both concentrically and eccentrically, needs to be a part of both rehabbing and preventing ankle sprains. Without any intervention, the increased re-injury risk gradually declines over a 1 to 2-year period until the baseline risk level is achieved again (Verhagen & Bay, 2010).

Taping or using some sort of orthotic device has also been used to help prevent ankle sprains. Recent research has found that orthoses reduced the incidence of ankle sprains in previously sprained athletes (Mohammadi, 2007). Ankle taping/orthoses protect the ankle by attempting to prevent inversion movements and keeping the ankle in the proper anatomical position during impact. Additional research has found taping of the ankle is the most commonly used preventative measure and a 2 to 4-fold lower ankle sprain rate was found for those athletes who taped their ankles when compared with those with no preventative measures (Verhagen & Bay, 2010).

Ankle sprain injuries can result in considerable time lost to injury and long term disability in up to 60 percent of patients (Waterman et al., 2010). The tendency for ankle sprains to recur or experience functional instability is attributable to a proprioceptive deficit caused by partial deafferentation of articular mechanoreceptors in the joint capsule and ligaments surrounding the ankle. In fact, athletes with a history of recurrent ankle sprains have a decreased sense of ankle position, which can potentially result in a slow onset of activation of muscles across the ankle joint especially evertors, and thus a failure to correct any excessive ankle positions (Mohammadi, 2007).

It has been suggested inappropriate positioning of the ankle joint before ground contact during walking may have important implications for ankle joint stability. Recent research has found that during the stance phase of gait, subjects with chronic ankle instability exhibited altered kinetics, which can be suggestive a lateral shift of body weight. Subjects with ankle instability have also been found to have a more inverted position of the ankle joint before and immediately after heel strike compared with a control group (Delahunt et al., 2006).

Subjects with functional instability have been shown to exhibit a more inverted position of the rear foot during the initial contact and loading phases and have a dorsiflexion deficit when compared to control subjects. Other research has suggested an increased plantar flexion touch down upon landing from a jump could precipitate the onset of an ankle joint sprain (O’ Driscoll et al., 2011).

The purpose of proprioceptive rehabilitation is to retrain altered afferent pathways to enhance the sensation of joint movement, which comes into action at 3 distinct levels of motor activation within the central nervous system (CNS). Reflexes at the spinal level mediate movement patterns that are received from higher levels of the nervous system, which provides reflex for joint stabilization during conditions of excessive stress.

The brainstem receives information from the joint mechanoreceptors, vestibular system and visual input from the eyes to maintain posture and balance of the body. The highest level of the CNS obtains cognitive awareness of body position and movement in which motor commands are initiated for voluntary movements. These movements are repeated and stored as central commands to be performed without continuous reference to consciousness. To stimulate reflex joint stabilization, activities must focus on sudden changes in joint positioning that necessitate reflex neuromuscular control (Ergen & Ulker, 2008).

A review of research involving balance board/disc training, strength training and proprioceptive training shows proprioceptive training is the most effective part of these programs. The neuromuscular training targets the underlying impairment by re-establishing and strengthening the ligaments, muscles and protective reflexes of the ankle (Verhagen & Bay, 2010). Following an ankle injury, it is incredibly important to focus on the dynamic stability of the ankle joint to ensure the athlete can react quickly to sudden inversion ankle motions, thus preventing sprains of the lateral ligament complex of the ankle.

Previous research has shown balance exercises or multi directional intervention training programs can be effective in reducing the incidence of ankle injuries in athletes involved in pivoting sports. In fact, it has been shown balance training was effective in reducing the risk of ankle sprain injuries by 36 percent. Balance exercises were more effective in athletes with a history of ankle injuries than in those without (Hubscher et al., 2010).

Ankle rehab should follow a progression along these lines: joint position sense à dynamic joint stabilization à reactive neuromuscular control à functionally specific activities. Located below are examples of ankle rehab exercises within each distinct progression along the continuum.

Dynamic Joint Stabilization: 4-way isometric ankle manuals; 4-way ankle manuals focusing on eccentric motion; double leg and single leg calf raises focusing on the eccentric motion (emphasizing proper loading through the big toe/1st metatarsal and eliminating any supination of the foot); wall drills (linear emphasis); bungee assisted and “no bungee” linear/lateral/multidirectional movements

Reactive Neuromuscular Control: single leg balance (eyes open progressing to eyes closed, use of discs/balance boards/etc.); single leg balance exercises with added external stimulus from sagittal/frontal/transverse plane; single leg hurdle hops (progressing from linear to lateral to multidirectional in direction, non-countermovement to countermovement, with a pause or “stick” each time to continuous); single leg eccentric loading; single leg plyometric exercises

Functionally Specific Activities: sport specific exercises (incorporating non-reactive and reactive drills); position specific exercises based on movements that each position requires (for example, outside backs differ from center backs)

          Return to Sport Post ACL Reconstruction

ACL injuries continue to be a hot topic in the sport world. A big reason is that even though they are still not very common, percentage wise, they have a large impact on long term joint health, recovery, cost and ability to return. As reconstruction techniques continue to evolve, athletes are able to return to play, but how successfully?

After surgery, the treatment consists of rehabilitation to regain motion, function, proprioception strength and control. Once athletes have completed about 6-9 months of rehab, they return to sport. Here’s the sobering news: Of those who suffer an ACL reconstruction, only 65% return to their pre-injury level of sport, with only 55% returning to competitive play. Even more discouraging is the fact that of those who return to sport, up to 1 in 5 will suffer a tear to their reconstructed knee, or the ACL on the non-reconstructed side.

In order to determine what risk factors existed, and ways to modify them, researchers looked at elite soccer players who had their ACL reconstructed and then followed them. They looked at the type of surgery they had, their rehabilitation process and their return to sport. What they discovered was that athletes who did not meet certain bench marks in rehab were 4 times more likely to have another ACL injury. The following table shows the exercises and the discharge criteria that were deemed successful.

Discharge tests and criteria used during the study period

6 part return to sport tests Discharge permitted when criteria was met
Isokinetic test at 60, 180 and 300 degrees/sec Quadriceps deficit 10% at 60 degrees/sec
Single leg hop Limb symmetry index >90%
Triple hop Limb symmetry index >90%
Triple crossover hop Limb symmetry index >90%
On field sport specific rehab Fully completed
T test 11 sec

In addition to the tests above, athletes who had lower hamstring-to-quadriceps strength ratios were also more likely to injure their ACL. Since strong hamstrings act as an assistant to the ACL, weakness there can mean more stress on the ligament.

Conclusion

This study highlights a couple of key points when rehabilitating ACL injuries.

- Prior to return to play, athletes should be fully recovered with equal strength bilaterally

- They should be able to seamlessly perform multidirectional drills

- Athletes should have adequate hamstring strength. Most of us do not have access to isokinetic testing, but spending time having athletes perform hamstring strengthening during their rehabilitation is essential.

          Wrestling Weight Management: Safe Practices for Weight Loss and Weight Gain   
Posted March 17, 2016

By Claudia Curtis, MS, ATC, LAT

Gone are the days of wrestlers using rubber suits to condition in order to lose weight. The wrestling community recognizes now how unsafe this practice is and that there are more appropriate ways to manage weight. So why is it that as Athletic Trainers (ATs), we continue to hear our wrestlers are running themselves ragged just hours before weigh-ins to make weight? Why is it that with all of the resources we have about nutrition, we still hear of athletes eating bizarre things or starving themselves to make weight? Don’t these practices go against everything we know about hydration and nutrition’s contributions to performance?

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and many high school associations require hydration and body fat testing to determine the minimum weight safe for an athlete to participate, calculated at the beginning of the season. While this is a great way to establish a baseline for safety, many wrestlers are uninterested or uneducated in the safest way to achieve, and more importantly, maintain a weight throughout the season. There is no requirement to maintain hydration status throughout the season, so frequently the first thing athletes do to lose weight is to restrict water intake. Losing even 2 percent of body weight due to dehydration is enough to show performance deficits.1 Continuing beyond that level increases the effects on multiple body systems, leading to losses in strength and endurance.2 At 5 percent dehydration, research indicates the body’s capacity for work output can decrease by up to 30 percent.1 Hydration is encouraged in many sports; it is important that it be viewed the same way in wrestling.

Encouraging high school and collegiate wrestlers to focus on an appropriate diet to maintain a healthy weight can be more challenging. Wrestlers frequently look at the quantity of what they’re putting into their body as a way of management, not the quality. Not all calories are created equal, and focusing on nourishment that will leave the athlete feeling full and allowing their body to recover from the rigors of a very demanding sport is an important key to success. The Cleveland Clinic’s tips for athletes include focusing on a diet filled with lean protein (chicken and fish), paired with healthy fats (found in many seeds, nuts and avocado) and high fiber fruits and vegetables. Blood sugar remains more stable and the body feels full for longer. Other tips include looking for unneeded sources of sugar in the diet and focusing on refueling the body within an hour after a workout.3 Making sure to refuel after workouts keeps the body from wanting to overindulge at the next meal. When athletes are looking to lose weight, they need to be encouraged not to restrict calorie intake, as they often over restrict. This can lead to decreases in metabolism, and eventually decreases in training intensity and performance.4

The most important thing to remember is the majority of the wrestling population is still developing, both physically and cognitively, and the things these athletes put in their body have a direct effect on their ability to fully develop. Not only does diet have an effect on their physical performance, but also on their ability to remain alert in the classroom. As ATs, we realize we are not dietitians, but we can encourage them to find the most appropriate ways to manage their weight, avoiding yo-yo diets and dehydration, to allow for proper weight management and optimal performance.

          Strategies in Pro Sports to Encourage Sleep and Promote Recovery When Traveling   
Posted March 14, 2016

The National Sleep Foundation kicks off its #7Days4BetterSleep in this year’s Sleep Awareness Week from March 6-13. Sleep is part of everyone’s daily routine, some more than others, but is often how we spend one-third of our existence on this planet. It’s been reported through the years that sleep is closely related to physical and mental health, cognitive processes and metabolic functions (Samuels, 2008).

For the athlete population, sleep serves as one of the most significant factors to ensure the appropriate amount of recovery from training sessions and games. Research indicates athletes generally sleep less than non-athletes and often have difficulty sleeping (Walters, 2002). Sleep serves multiple purposes. It has been emphasised that sleep helps with physical and psychological restoration and recovery, conservation of energy, memory consolidation, discharge of emotions, brain growth and maintenance of the immune system (Samuels, 2008). Sleep loss or a lack of sleep could lead to a general decline in athletic performance.

In professional sports, athletes and staff can expect to spend half of the team’s regular season games on the road. The figure pictured here is an example of the first half of the 2015 season for the Los Angeles Galaxy. A constant struggle with east to west or west to east travel is athletes and staff tend to battle fatigue during and after the long journeys. This more than likely is due to the cramped conditions; dehydration as a result of the low humidity on board the airplane; air turbulence; reduced barometric pressure; vibration; noise; flight anxiety and whole body stiffness due to relative inactivity while traveling (Reilly et al., 2005).

The rapid transition across time zones leads to the appearance of a number of undesireable side effects, collectively known as jet lag.  Jet lag is the psychophysiological impairment of well being and performance. It occurs when the athletes’ circadian rhythms are disturbed by trans meridian travel because the time in the new environment no longer matches the body’s internal circadian rhythm (Reilly et al., 2005).  Jet lag symptoms include but are not limited to an inability to sleep at the local time, bowel irregularities, increased incidence of headaches, irritability and moodiness, fatigue, reduced cognitive skills and poor psychomotor coordination (Brooks et al., 2005). The severity of jet lag is directly related to the direction of flight (it can be worse after flying east compared to west) and the number of time zones crossed. The general rate of adjustment is traditionally seen as one day for each time zone crossed (Reilly et al., 2005).

Contrary to the other professional sports in the United States, teams within Major League Soccer travel commercially for all road games throughout the entire regular season. Each club deals with the headaches  everyone else tends to have when traveling domestically, including weather delays, long lines at security, aircraft mechanical issues, the middle seat saga, lost baggage and the general negative mood level of some airline personnel. Arriving into the new city can be a hectic experience.  As the medical staff looking after athletes, it is imperitive we have protocols in place to ensure each individual is able to maximize their recovery from the flight and activity from the day. Athletes are normally expected to be fully prepared to participate at a high level inless than 24 hours after travel. Listed below are some strategies taken to allow athletes to get to sleep in order to promote recovery and ultimately achieve maximum performance with a minimal amount of travel side effects.

Behavioral

- Nap on the flight. A 20-minute nap about 8 hours after nocturnal sleep has positive effects on performance (Postolache et al., 2005).

- Recommend that athletes get 9 to 10 hours of sleep per day, with 80-90% of it during the night (Bompa & Haff, 2009).

- Encourage a bedtime ritual to develop a winding down routine to serve as a cue to the mind and body to get ready for sleep.

- Researchers recommend flight schedules be arranged to allow athletes to arrive at their destination as close to their recommended sleep time as possible. East-bound flights should be made during daylight hours with an earlier start for the longer flights. West-bound flights should be late in the day to arrive as close to the athlete’s sleep time as possible (Brooks et al., 2005).

Environmental

- Try to keep the temperature of the room as close to what is normal and most comfortable for the athlete. Research suggests that the ideal temperature for males to promote deep sleep is 68 degrees and for females it is 73 degrees (Pan et al., 2012).

- Keep the lights low or off in the hotel room when preparing to fall asleep, usually starting an hour before going to sleep. The alteration of light and darkness is seen as the most important factor that can be used to reset the body clock (Arendt, 2009).

- Avoid using electronics (phone, TV, etc.) prior to going to bed to maximize the darkness in the hotel room.

- Massage prior to bed to allow the body to calm down and relieve any tension built up in the musculature.

Diet

- Drink water on the flight and upon arrival in the new city, as dehyration makes it difficult to adjust to a new circadian rhythm.

- Consume food sources containing tryptophan for dinner. Such foods include nuts, seeds, tofu, cheese, red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, oats, beans, lentils and eggs. Tryptophan serves as a precursor for the rest-inducing hormones serotonin and melatonin and ultimately leads to the synthesis of melatonin in the brain (Peuhkuri, 2012).

- Minimize spicy and acidic foods at dinner which can increase the risk of heartburn.

- Drink a chamomile tea after dinner. Chamomile has been valued as a digestive relaxant and has been used to treat various GI distubances including flatulence, indigestion, diarrhea, motion sickness, nausea and vomiting (Srivastava et al., 2010).

- Consume a snack before bed that contains carbohydrate. Carbohydrate can raise plasma tryptophan levels, promoting the synthesis and release of serotonin, a precursor of melatonin (Reilly et al., 2005). Research indicates that certain fruits such as tart cherries or kiwi fruits promote sleep (Peuhkuri, 2012).

- Drink a glass of chocolate milk before bed. Melatonin is a natural compound in cow’s milk(Peuhkuri, 2012)

- Avoid drinking caffeine or alcohol before going to bed.

- Take a night-time supplement with magnesium and zinc (ZMA pills). Magnesium is an essential mineral that can improve length and quality of sleep. Magnesium supplementation close to bed has been shown to improve brain activity readings associated with deep sleep and lower late-night cortisol levels (Held et al., 2002). Zinc, particularly in combination with magnesium and possibly melatonin, can promote better sleep, particularly for people who struggle with insomnia (Rondanelli et al., 2011).

- Ingest oral melatonin 30 minutes prior to going to bed. Melatonin is known to decrease the time taken to fall asleep, and is thought to promote more restful sleep based on its circadian rhythm functions (Macchi & Bruce, 2004). Research shows that daily doses between 0.5 and 5mg were similar in effectiveness, except that on the higher dose people fell asleep more quickly. High-dose melatonin prompts sleep induction and decreases the fatigue the next day more than low-dose melatonin (Herxheimer & Petrie, 2001).

          World Pediatric Bone and Joint Day 2015 – Focus on ACL Tear Prevention   
Claudia Curtis, MS, LAT, ATC

Claudia.Curtis@phci.org

This year’s focus for World Pediatric Bone and Joint Day on October 19 was anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in the knee.  The American Academy of Pediatrics has acknowledged that in the past 20 years there has been a sharp increase in ACL tears due to a variety of reasons, including increased sport participation, increased detection with medical technology and education advances, and increased focus on intense training to develop athletic skills at a young age.  While these factors have little effect on young children, this changes dramatically as children begin puberty and clinicians begin to see a sharp increase in ACL tears in the pubescent athlete.1

As clinicians, we know prevention of all injuries is not possible. A tear of the ACL is one injury that continues to occur despite our best efforts.  One of the main reasons ACL injuries continue lies in the fact that these injuries are multifactorial.  Researchers have identified intrinsic factors (anatomical, hormonal, biomechanical and neuromuscular) and extrinsic factors (level/type of athletic participation, playing surface, environmental factors and equipment).2,3  Understanding that there are so many contributing factors, where do we begin to address the issue?

Immediately, we can recognize there are certain factors we have no control over, such as: female sex, bony geometry of the knee joint (femoral notch and tibial plateau characteristics) and congenital knee joint laxity.3 The main factors athletes have the ability to modify include neuromuscular control at the hip and knee and postural stability.1 Extensive research has looked at jumping and landing mechanics and pathomechanics in athletes who have sustained ACL tears.  Many researchers have developed prevention programs based on neuromuscular and biomechanical training, as these are modifiable risk factors that as clinicians we can focus on to decrease ACL tear or re-tear risk.  Attention has been paid to the effect puberty has on these factors and the importance of retraining the hips and knees as the alignment changes in females.  None of this is news to clinicians cued in to the pulse of ACL injuries.

So if we’re looking for something more novel, what about continuing up the kinetic chain?  The Washington Post has put out a series of articles looking at students in schools at the elementary and middle school level.  While these articles are focused on the cognitive realm, including concentrating in class and ADD/ADHD among students, their findings indicate a physical cause: core weakness or poor postural control.  Postural assessments of these students demonstrate increased forward head, protracted scapulae and increased lumbar lordosis.  Many of these students cannot truly engage their deep core musculature with abdominal exercises. Muscle imbalances begin at a very young age as a result.  If athletes are heading into puberty and the prime years of athletic participation without core strength or postural control, are we setting up athletes for ACL tears that could be prevented?

          Running and Foot Wear: What Should We Be Considering?   
Claudia Percifield, MS, ATC

As the weather warms up, athletes start to take their workouts outdoors. What should we take into consideration to prevent injury as we transition?

1. How many miles have we put on our shoes?

Many running professionals recommend replacing shoes every 300-500 miles. However, consider the shoe and the runner when deciding how soon to replace them. Lightweight running shoes with less durable construction and materials may break down faster, particularly with a heavier runner. Keep in mind the style of runner as well, as a heavier heel striker may get fewer miles out of a pair of shoes than a mid-foot or forefoot striker. Looking at the wear pattern on the shoe’s tread will be 1 visual indicator of the wear of the shoe. It will also give clues about running form.

2. Running form/muscular strength

Evaluating running form can indicate how much structural support a runner needs from shoe wear, as well as give clues about what support their musculature brings to the joints of the lower extremity. Keep in mind the source of someone’s pain may not be from the anatomical structures that they are complaining of pain in. For example, while some shin pain is directly tied to weak ankle and foot intrinsic musculature, some medial shin pain may be related to poor hip strength and mechanics with running. Considering kinetic chain, viewing mechanics at multiple joints may more appropriately address the source of injury and allow an Athletic Trainer to more properly prescribe rehabilitation exercises to treat and prevent injury.

3. Foot structure

For some, foot structure plays a minimal role in what running shoe they need to be successful in running pain free. Unfortunately, most of the running population doesn’t fit into that group, and proper shoe type to match foot structure and running mechanics goes a long way in reducing injury risk. Determining arch type is the first step in figuring out the most appropriate running shoe. The amount of the mid-foot that shows up on the ground indicates the arch type and gives an idea of how much support the physical structure the foot provides. Keep in mind that this test only indicates what the foot looks like in a static position. Running is a dynamic activity and someone who many not pronate much in standing may pronate significantly more when running, requiring more support.

Running shoes are the easiest to customize to the individual athlete. For those athletes in cleated sports or basketball shoes where there is no arch support in the shoe, options for off-the-shelf arch supports with comparable quality to custom have been growing. This is a great option to provide athletes with the same level of support and comfort that they can achieve in running shoes.

The best way to determine the right shoes for someone is to try them out. Many stores dedicated to running have treadmills and/or tracks available for customers to actually run in the shoes prior to purchase. They frequently have staff trained in biomechanics who may videotape and analyze running gait and provide suggestions regarding shoe wear based on what they are able to observe.  They will also have a plethora of arch support options for athletes to try with their own shoes. The time, effort and cost of having a trained professional evaluate running form prior to purchase can go a long way in successful, healthy running!

          Understanding Overuse Injuries in High School and College   
By Tim Koba, ATC

The American Journal of Sports Medicine published a recent article examining overuse injuries in high school and collegiate sports.  Overuse injuries account for 70 percent of injuries suffered in these groups. Of those injuries, running was the common cause.  The most commonly involved lower extremity joint was the knee; predictably, baseball, softball, swimming and diving had more shoulder involvement.

This study confirmed what practitioners have been observing when working with their athletes, and the comparison between groups is helpful in identifying trends.  College athletes have higher incidences that result in more time lost; women have more overuse injuries than men and lower extremity injuries are prevalent in sports that involve running.  While the conclusions are not surprising, I think the important point to remember is repetitive loading results in tissue breakdown that causes injury without adequate time for adaptation.

Coaches and those who work in coach education can use this information to better develop preseason and off season training plans that take overuse injuries into consideration.  Instituting programs that have athletes gradually start running or throwing in the off season can decrease the injuries once the season starts.  Too often, not enough is done in the off season and too much is done in the preseason and early season.  This jump in activity increases the tissue load beyond what it can absorb and leads to an injury.  Utilizing a periodized program can make sure loads are applied more thoughtfully to reduce the stress while still attaining the goal of greater skill and fitness development.

Understanding overuse injuries are prevalent can also help strength coaches and Athletic Trainers to come up with preventative programs.  For those athletes who do a lot of running, controlling the volume is helpful, but so is making sure there are no weaknesses in the kinetic chain.  Spending time on improving hip and core strengthening along with running drills can improve the ability to absorb force and decrease tissue overload.  Similarly, making sure the shoulders are strong and stable prior to swimming or throwing can decrease the overload they sustain once the season begins.  Continuing to monitor athletes and noticing deficits or changes can be an early warning sign the athlete is experiencing too much strain.

Once athletes start to have pain, early intervention and volume control may be undertaken to decrease the load applied and allow the athlete to continue with participation.  Knowing what the common injuries are in a sport can assist with ways of modifying the known risk factors.

          Athletic Trainers Handle Stress and Burnout   
By Erin Chapman, MS, LAT, ATC

As Athletic Trainers (ATs), we spend 95% of our time worrying about the health and well-being of family members, friends and patients.  Little time is focused on our own mental and physical health.  I believe the characteristic of selflessness is what makes an AT intuitive and compassionate during a difficult time in a patient’s life, but it can also wear on the clinician’s emotional state.  Emotions do not only affect our mental health but also numerous functions of the body including the digestive, immune, respiratory and/or cardiovascular systems.  While many different stressors or factors can disrupt emotional health, the unique responsibilities – both professional and personal – of an Athletic Trainer are multifaceted, making it difficult to identify the source of one’s emotional change.

The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) and other outlets have established research to identify the causes of stress and burnout within the athletic training profession.

So, how are clinicians handling or managing stress and burnout?

Athletic Trainers often state that time, money and energy are limitations; therefore, it is imperative we find ways to deal with these noted shortcomings.  I was previously one of those ATs who did not take care of my mental well-being and felt as though I did not have the tools to tackle it myself.

During my first semester in a doctorate program, I was introduced to the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).  Through the implementation of the EFT, I learned about the stressors and emotions affecting both my professional and personal life.  The EFT is a treatment paradigm based upon psychological acupressure.  The technique uses tapping of the fingers to input kinetic energy onto specific energy meridians while thinking about the specific stressor or problem during the restating of positive affirmations.

While this is just one treatment paradigm for mental well-being and may not be your choice of intervention, there are similar paradigms that might be just as effective.  Identifying stressors or problems that are consuming your thoughts and emotions can help guide treatment interventions.  Listed here are other treatment paradigms: Sensory Flow, Traumatic Release Exercises (TRE), Qi-gong, yoga, Reflexercise and Reiki. Determining which technique is appropriate for you is the first step that allows you, as an AT practitioner, to help yourself prior to helping others.

          Dell and Sony Pictures reveal Times Square Spider-Man: Homecoming billboard game   

Dell and Sony Pictures are celebrating the impending release of Marvel cinematic universe movie Spider-Man: Homecoming with a gamified digital out of home billboard in Times Square.

Participants can enter the game by accessing a URL promoted on two digital screens in Times Square. The first screen promotes Dell’s Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop gaming while driving footfall to the game in Times Square, which will have a leaderboard for entrants to compete over.

The game requires players to rapidly tap their phone screens to help Spider-Man scale the building. As they do this, a projected Spider-Man will climb up a nearby building, based on the performance of the participants.

The activity from Kinetic and digital production partner, “game will target audiences on the move in a way that builds brand equity”.

Greg Crockart, chief executive North America, Candyspace Media, said: “Creating an experience which incorporates gaming into the promotion would clearly appeal to [potential Dell gaming latptop] customers.

“The game also helps to promote the relationship between Sony Pictures and Dell, as the game on the DOOH screens actually powered by Dell computers."

Spider-Man: Homecoming is released in the US 7 July.

Dell and Sony also ran a dedicated TV ad slot.

          Comment on Foundations of Greenhouse Theory Challenged by New Analysis of Solar System Observations by Ned Nikolov   
In regard to the physical meaning of an <b>average</b> near-surface planetary temperature - such a meaning does indeed exists!. Because the temperature of a gas is <i>linearly</i> related to the internal kinetic energy of a gas measured in <b>Joules</b> and defined by the product PV (Pressure x gas Volume = Joules), the <i>average</i> temperature near the surface of a planet is a measure (a direct indicator) of the kinetic energy contained in the lower troposphere... Arithmetic averages are always physically meaningful if the the parameter being averaged is linearly related to an important state variable of the system (such as the amount of kinetic energy). By the same token, an average temperature does <b>not</b> represent an average energy flux, because the relationship between absolute temperature (K) and an energy flux (W m-2) is <b>highly non-linear</b> according to the S-B radiation law. I hope this helps resolve the debate about the meaning of average temperatures ...

I was finally able to break back in to Horizon: Zero Dawn on Friday night.  I had a few hours, so I ignored my second playthrough save - already close to the end of the game, there - and started up a new game.  I zipped past Aloy's depressing childhood, crushing tutorials as fast as I could.

The thing is, Horizon doesn't really have a traditional part where the tutorial ends and the Game Proper begins.  Aloy's childhood introduces the tangible mechanics you'll be using throughout the rest of the game - this is how you crouch to sneak, this is how you draw your bow, this is how you scan enemies, how to craft ammo - and once the traditional montage is complete, adult Aloy is set loose in The Embrace with a few quests to complete.

The Embrace is a valley in the south-east corner of the map, and it's colossal.  Its topography is so dense, you can't see from one side to the other - it's miles across, and is something like... ten of the open-world levels in Rise of the Tomb Raider stitched together, that you can seamlessly explore, all at once.  Maybe more than ten, actually.  It's pretty ridiculous.

Scrappers - mechanical wolves or hyenas would be their closest approximation - are the meanest things in The Embrace. 

The Embrace is colossal, is my point, and will take you four or five hours to explore - with more yet to go, if you want to exhaust all its secrets.  This, too, is honestly part of the game's tutorial as you discover how quests work, how Aloy's (sci-fi Bluetooth) Focus can be used to solve crimes and track targets a'la Batman's Detective vision, and can mark targets a'la Far Cry's binoculars (or Batman's Detective vision, I suppose).  You learn the need to hunt specific machines to acquire the specific resources you need to produce specific kinds of ammunition, and grow accustomed to Aloy's weirdly-comfortable locomotion.

That's one of the reasons I love Horizon, for the record.  How comfortable it is to just move Aloy around an environment.  There's something... kind of pop-y and likewise a bit heavy to her jumps.  She has weight, and when she leaps she springs up, tucks her legs in and snaps them back down when she lands, allowing her to confidently clear gaps and leap across streams, sticking confidently to little rocks as she hops along.

Your map is a groovy combination of actual world topography and easy-to-scan crisscrosses of beaten footpaths, and another one of the things I love about Horizon is how - while if you told me to walk from Rost's cabin to the gates of the Embrace, I couldn't find my way there without a map - but when a quest marker tells you to head 500 yards east, there's something natural, comfortable, pleasurable about sending Aloy scampering along woodland paths and scrambling up rock faces, skidding down ravines and leaping from cliffs.  She enjoys the same breezy movement as Lara in the latest Tomb Raiders, and Horizon's staggeringly generous landscape is almost intoxicating.

After you've met some folks, learned how shops worked, solved some quests, upgraded your spear, maybe learned how specific ammo types can give you a leg up against certain enemies, handled a domestic situation with a young man suffering from psychosis and found Old Grata's prayer beads (though you skip almost all of it, if you wish), you're pushed into the next major story beat and can freely explore beyond The Embrace, into the Nora's Sacred Lands.

The Sacred Lands are about three times the size of The Embrace.


It's worth pointing out, I reckon, that everything you're doing as you complete the tutorial before the tutorial before the next tutorial is fun.  Horizon's combat is somewhere between the slow-paced, impeccably-framed strategy of The Last of Us and Tomb Raider's kinetic, predatory bow hunting.  You learn quickly that the machine-dinosaurs have weaknesses all over that must be exploited if you don't just plan on putting fifty arrows into a Scrapper, and taking advantage of it - putting a fire arrow into a blaze canister on a Strider's back that detonates and damages every machine in its orbit, threading the needle right into a Watcher's eye (its only weak spot) - always earns you a lovely sigh of pleasure.

So you stride past The Embrace into the Sacred Lands, and it's kind of like Link to the Past, where after gathering the three pendants your world suddenly explodes in size and scope and there is so much more than you imagined there could be.


There's more to learn - here is a Hunting Ground, maybe you should check that out!  There is a corrupted zone, what's the deal with that?  Why do I have two main quests?  Who is this creepy fucker and where is this bandit camp he's talking about?  What's a Cauldron?  This weapon seems better than my other weapon, but it doesn't do more damage - how does this even work?  Good lord, if I want the best stealth armor, I need the heart of something called a "Bellowback" - that shouldn't be too hard, right?

It will take another ten hours, at least, to complete the quests in the Sacred Lands - and that's not counting all the little collectibles, ancient viewpoints, data logs and Banuk artifacts that are weirdly pleasurable to find.  Doing this - the method by which you do this - is so much fun.  



When I was doing my first playthrough of Horizon, I remarked that it felt like the game I've been waiting this whole generation to play - and that remains true.  I compare it above, a lot, to Tomb Raider because it gives me almost all the pleasures of Lara's excellent reboot with so much more.  The crazy skill-and-tactics flavor of Horizon's combat beats the pants off Lara's perhaps more stylish brutality, and the way the game lets the player wander around, sneaking through silent woods under the moonlight, clambering up cliffsides, sitting, motionless, and forming a plan of attack for a herd of Lancehorns - the way each encounter, discovery, little adventure flows smoothly into the next - brings to mind some of my favorite games of last gen.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is in a lot of ways the game I wanted Rise of the Tomb Raider and inFamous: Second Son to be.  Not to knock RotTR - it's quite good! - but Horizon gives me that same endlessly fun, endlessly playable sense of inFamous and its PS3 sequel.  It's the same fun, fun and then fun again you'll get from Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction or a Grand Theft Auto, but its gameplay is so much more refined.

There's no tradeoff, here.  I'm not playing a merely decent-looking game because its gameplay is so fun - Horizon is so good-looking it borders on obscene.  I'm not accepting middling gameplay because the graphics are so hot - this is the funnest, most engaging single-player combat since The Last of Us, with the liquid freedom of an open-world game to boot.  If The Witcher III was even thirty per cent as fun to play as Horizon, I would have played that game into the fucking ground.


I'm playing through Horizon and I'm trying to imagine what could possibly take its place at the top of the 2017 heap, in Game of the Year consideration.  I'll be pret-ty surprised if Wolfenstein or Uncharted or South Park or Dishonored can dislodge it.

I've cleared enough of the corrupted zones in the Sacred Lands to convince the Carja soldiers at the fort to open the gate to the lands beyond - but I'm not leaving, quite yet.  There's a few more things to do, a few extra corrupted zones I can clear out before I have them open those gates, and then...

Then Horizon is almost done with its tutorials.  Then the map cracks open like the sky, a further three or four times larger than the Embrace and the Sacred Lands combined, crawling with colossal machines that dwarf anything in the Sacred Lands.  It's so generous.

If you'll excuse me, I have some metal megafauna to stalk.

          Asymptotic behaviour methods for the Heat Equation. Convergence to the Gaussian. (arXiv:1706.10034v1 [math.AP])   

Authors: Juan Luis Vázquez

In this expository work we discuss the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions of the classical heat equation posed in the whole Euclidean space.

After an introductory review of the main facts on the existence and properties of solutions, we proceed with the proofs of convergence to the Gaussian fundamental solution, a result that holds for all integrable solutions, and represents in the PDE setting the Central Limit Theorem of probability. We present several methods of proof: first, the scaling method. Then several versions of the representation method. This is followed by the functional analysis approach that leads to the famous related equations, Fokker-Planck and Ornstein-Uhlenbeck. The analysis of this connection is also given in rather complete form here. Finally, we present the Boltzmann entropy method, coming from kinetic equations.

The different methods are interesting because of the possible extension to prove the asymptotic behaviour or stabilization analysis for more general equations, linear or nonlinear. It all depends a lot on the particular features, and only one or some of the methods work in each case. A mention of results for different equations is done in the last section.


          Nonlinear Stability of Planar Vortex Patches in Bounded Domains. (arXiv:1706.10070v1 [math.AP])   

Authors: Daomin Cao, Guodong Wang

We prove nonlinear stability of planar vortex patches concentrating at a strict local minimum point of the Robin function in a bounded domain. These vortex patches are stationary solutions of the 2-D incompressible Euler equations. This is achieved by showing that they are strict local maximizers of the kinetic energy among isovortical patches.

          NASA To Deflect Asteroid Away From Earth Using Fridge-Sized 'Bullet'   

NASA has taken the next step in its bold mission to protect the planet from potentially lethal asteroids.

Known as the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), the mission involves firing a fridge-sized projectile at nine times the speed of a bullet at an incoming asteroid.

The hope is that the sheer force of the projectile when it collides with the asteroid will be enough to push it off course and steer it away from a potential collision with Earth.

Before you all start putting bags on your heads it's important to note that there's absolutely nothing to worry about, DART is nothing more than a test to prove that the system can work if called upon.

As such the team have targeted a non-lethal asteroid pair called Didymos that has two known near-Earth approaches in October 2022, and then again in 2024.

Travelling from Earth the spacecraft would use an advanced targeting system to fly to Didymos whereupon it would take aim at Didymos B, the smaller of the two asteroids.

Accelerating at a speed of 3.7 miles per second (or nine times the speed of a bullet), the refrigerator-sized object will then smash into Didymos B.

Thanks to its close proximity to Earth, NASA's scientists will be able to use Earth-based observatories to then monitor the impact and the resulting change in orbit.

"DART is a critical step in demonstrating we can protect our planet from a future asteroid impact," said Andy Cheng of The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, the DART investigation co-lead.

"Since we don't know that much about their internal structure or composition, we need to perform this experiment on a real asteroid. With DART, we can show how to protect Earth from an asteroid strike with a kinetic impactor by knocking the hazardous object into a different flight path that would not threaten the planet."

Didymos is in many ways the perfect system to experiment on. By targeting the smaller of the two they can guarantee a change in orbit and yet still not affect the much much larger Didymos A's orbit around the Sun.

Lindley Johnson, planetary defense officer at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said: "This approval step advances the project toward an historic test with a non-threatening small asteroid."

While small asteroids hit Earth almost daily, almost all of them are burnt up in the planet's atmosphere.

Objects larger than 0.6 miles however are far rarer and due to their potentially cataclysmic affect on the planet, are a significant priority for NASA.

          NASA concept video shows how we might save Earth from rogue asteroids   

NASA concept video shows how we might save Earth from rogue asteroidsWe've all seen those blockbuster movies in which scientists lay out complicated, risky plans to save Earth from an incoming asteroid. And those plans are almost always dependent on a bit of luck.  But what would really happen in real life?  NASA thinks it has an answer, and the space agency demonstrated that solution in a concept video (below) posted on Friday.  SEE ALSO: This is how NASA spots potentially dangerous asteroids near Earth The video shows NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) vehicle deliberately crashing itself into one component of the binary asteroid system called Didymos.  "DART would be NASA’s first mission to demonstrate what's known as the kinetic impactor technique — striking the asteroid to shift its orbit — to defend against a potential future asteroid impact," Lindley Johnson, planetary defense officer at NASA, said in a statement in June.  The plan is part of an international effort to develop a planetary defense program to address asteroids that might pose a danger to Earth.  The kinetic impact test will be carried out years from now, beginning with the first part of the mission in 2020 with the launch of two spacecraft, and execution of the test occurring in 2022.  In addition to NASA, partners in the plan include the European Space Agency (ESA), the Observatoire de la Côte d´Azur (OCA), and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL).  It may be years before we find out if this is effective, but at least we're finally coming up with extinction-level event asteroid contingency plans that don't include migrating to Mars with Elon Musk.  WATCH: SpaceX did something amazing over the weekend

          Check out Chris Burden's massive kinetic sculpture of a model car track   

A new film about artist Chris Burden comes out this year, which is the perfect reason to revisit one of his coolest later works: Metropolis II, filmed here by Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman.

The sculpture took four years to build. Quoth the filmmakers:

We had the honor of spending three days in Chris Burden's studio filming this sculpture before it was moved to the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (LACMA) where it is being reinstalled.

The documentary, titled Burden, is being released in 2017:
