Jack WhiteJanuary 18, 2016Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintRedshirt sophomore Chris Pfarr lost the last match of the dual, but the Sports Pavilion crowd still applauded.  The Scarlet Knights came back in the second match of the night. Gophers No. 7 Michael Kroells and Scarlet Knights No. 16 Billy Smith kept fighting until overtime, but Smith had an escape in the closing seconds to win 2-1. “Personally, I wish I would have taken it to him a little more in the third period,” Wanzek said. “I laid back a little bit and scored on a reshot.” Wanzek’s victory gave Minnesota a 17-12 lead, and Chris Pfarr’s loss in the final match wasn’t enough for Rutgers to avoid the upset. “I kind of like to go out first,” Pfarr said. “You get to warm up, and you’re right there, out and wrestling.” He had a takedown and a reversal in the first two periods against redshirt freshman John Van Brill to take a 4-0 lead and held on for a 4-2 victory. Even with the loss, No. 21 Minnesota edged No. 8 Rutgers Sunday by a final score of 17-16. Redshirt freshman Brandon Krone lost at 165 pounds to cut the Gophers lead to 14-12, but redshirt sophomore Nick Wanzek came back with an 8-4 victory at 174 pounds against redshirt junior Phillip Bakuckas. “He wrestles one of the top guys in his weight class and has really done a great job of dominating his opponents this season,” Eggum said. Redshirt sophomore Jake Short put the Gophers ahead 11-9 with a victory at 149 pounds, and redshirt junior Brandon Kingsley took the mat after that. Ranked No. 10 at 141 pounds, Thorn earned a near fall in the second period against No. 4 Anthony Ashnault and held on for an 8-1 victory. Eggum led the Gophers (6-6, 2-2 Big Ten) in the match with head coach J Robinson away due to his brother’s recent death. Pfarr, ranked No. 4 at 197 pounds, had 10 takedowns in his match against senior Hayden Hrymack and earned a technical fall. His victory gave the Gophers a 5-point lead to start the match.  The Gophers lost the next two matches before redshirt freshman Tommy Thorn was able to close the deficit. Eggum asked the team before the dual to get the victory for Robinson, and redshirt junior Brett Pfarr responded right out of the gate. “It’s one match, but it’s confidence,” head assistant coach Brandon Eggum said.  “All 10 guys showed up and wrestled well. We’re capable of having great wins over these very solid teams.”  “Really was a great team effort,” Eggum said. “To win matches like this you need guys to step up and get big wins.”last_img read more

Brain connectivity study helps explain the neural link between depression and poor sleep quality

first_imgLinkedIn Share on Facebook Email Share Share on Twittercenter_img Pinterest New research has identified functional connectivities in the brain that mediate the association between depressive symptoms and poor sleep quality. The findings were published in JAMA Psychiatry.“Nowadays depression and sleep problem are two of the most prevalent mental problems. To make matters worse, depression and sleep problems often go hand-in-hand, which has been observed more than a hundred years,” said study author Jianfeng Feng of Fudan University.About 75% of depressed patients report significant levels of sleep disturbance and people with insomnia also have a higher risk of developing depression. “However, until now, there was not an efficient way for the treatment of these two problems due to the poor understanding of their underlying mechanism,” Feng explained. “Our research group has worked on depression for more than ten years and produced many significant results. For example, the findings of our previous work published in Brain have shown promise for new treatments.”“In this work, we tried to figure out what are the brain systems associated with both depression and sleep quality. The answers to this question may lead to better treatments for both depression and sleep, especially for improving the sleep quality of depressive patients.”The researchers examined data from 1,017 participants who were included in the March 2017 public data release from the Human Connectome Project. They found that both poor sleep quality and depressive symptoms were associated with neural connectivities involving the lateral orbitofrontal cortex, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the cingulate cortex, and the precuneus.“Our analysis shows that the functional connections between the areas of the brain associated with short-term memory, the self, and negative emotions are increased in both poor sleep and depressive participants. So people with poor sleep or depression may focus too much on the negative things and dwell on bad thoughts, which leads to a poor quality of sleep,” Feng told PsyPost.The study — like all research — has limitations.“We only identified the neural connectivity that underlies the association between depression and sleep. There are many interesting and important questions still need to be addressed,” Feng explained. “For example, the causal relation between sleep and depression is an important topic that deserves much further investigation by using experimental manipulation or treatment administration.”“Another problem is the treatment of sleep problems and depression,” Feng added. “Future research could examine whether we could improve the symptom of insomnia and depression based on our findings, such as using transcranial magnetic stimulation or transcranial direct current stimulation to stimulate the brain areas identified in this work.”The study, “Functional Connectivities in the Brain That Mediate the Association Between Depressive Problems and Sleep Quality“, was authored by Wei Cheng, Edmund T. Rolls, Hongtao Ruan, and Jianfeng Feng.last_img read more

Player’s exit from Manchester City ‘confirmed’ – Makes assessment of his…

first_imgLast summer, Thierry Ambrose joined FC Metz on loan from Manchester City and the French club retain an option to make the forward’s stay permanent. The LFP confirmed the 2019/20 season has ended early due to the Covid-19 crisis. Paris Saint-Germain were crowned champions, while Metz will continue in the top flight next season.On May 6th, Républicain Lorrain reported the automatic option to buy the 23-year-old ‘will be triggered’ since the Ligue 1 side avoided relegation.Ambrose joined the English club’s academy in 2013, but failed to make a single appearance for their first team.After spending seven years at City, Foot Mercato claims his move from the English champions to Metz is now ‘confirmed’.The player has given an interview to Foot Mercato, and was asked to make an assessment of his time with the Premier League winners.“I make a good assessment. I arrived very young, I finished best player with the youth team, top scorer, I won the championship, I made it to the bench (of the first team). I learned a lot there,” he said.Embed from Getty Images“My only regret is that I didn’t go there [the first team]. I think I had a chance at one point and I injured my cruciate. “So, there is not even a real regret, when you hurt yourself, that’s how it is. But I learned a lot and I know that until the end of my life I could say that I played at City. It’s beautiful!”When quizzed what he will do if the door opens again to join Manchester City, Ambrose said: “Of course! It’s there in the back of my head.“City is not a club that closes the door. I know if you have a great season, this is a club that can buy you.”The Frenchman explained how his time at City has helped him to have a different view towards the way the sport is played today.“I like to play football with possession and it is largely thanks to them. In everything I do now, I’m looking for a possession game and trying to understand better why it matters. In the tactical and mental aspect, I learned a lot,” the attacker stressed.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoMake Money Online | Search AdsDo You Want To Make Money Online?

Dominant Deryl departs

first_imgRob Brown & Deryl Neufeld.PSC Golf from Cafe KronborgMonday 2nd December Silky Oak StablefordThe golfers from Kronborg headed to Silky Oak on the first Monday of December. Playing from the front tees and using all available drop zones the scores were pretty decent. A welcome went out to Peter Hammond who had just arrived from the UK, and farewell to Deryl Neufeld heading back to work in the Middle East.Deryl tends to be in town for about a month, between his work commitments, so is just hitting form when he has to leave. He has been on a hot streak in the last week or so and today was no different. Deryl won a closely fought contest pipping three players by one point. On his departure he made a donation to the Cafe Kronborg golfers Christmas bash.

We headed up the seven amidst rumours that they had lost our booking. On arrival the check in was quiet and they could easily accommodate our four groups. We teed off in a strong breeze, which kept the temperature down. The breeze continued all day and made some holes seem very short and some very long.The putting appeared difficult for the group I was in, but Svend Gaarde had no problem on the greens. Svend won the B flight, and two long putts. Svend squeezed out Peter Hammond on a tight countback, going down to the last three holes.
