|" Will 2016 be forever remembered as the year of the underdog? Looking beyond the world of sport for a minute nike air max 97 pas cher , it's a theme that has its merits - rightly or wrongly. The US election was won by a candidate that was long regarded as a joke, something echoed by Brexit, and sport was no different.
Take your pick of the biggest tournaments in the world and there has been a noticeable trend toward unfashionable, unfancied and unfathomable champions.
Let's start with the biggest of all: Leicester City. The Foxes were in relegation form in the 2014-15 season of the English Premier League under Nigel Pearson before a remarkable turnaround that saw them retain their status in England's top flight. A mere 12 months later they were the champions, and deservedly so nike air max flair pas cher , in a story that touched the hearts of many a sports romantic.
But Claudio Ranieri's unlikely champs were not the only ones that blew the minds of bookmakers and bloggers alike in defying reasonable expectation.
Major League Baseball's Chicago Cubs ended the 71-year-old ""Curse of the Billy Goat"" and a 108-year wait for the World Series this year, while in the end to another of the curses so prevalent in US sports, the Cleveland Cavaliers lifted the NBA championship and in doing so ended the city's 52-year drought for a national champion in major sport. That they won thanks to LeBron James, one of the best players in the history of the NBA, hardly matters given the Cavs were up against a Golden State Warriors team that had just blown away a number of regular-season records and were defending champions.
Elsewhere nike air max 2018 femme pas cher , Chile beat Leo Messi's Argentina in the Copa America Centenario and while they had done the same thing the year before, this was even more unexpected than their 2015 victory on home soil. In Europe, Portugal won the European Championship against hosts France - and they did so without talisman Cristiano Ronaldo who urged them on from the sidelines after being injured. Elsewhere at Euro 2016, Wales and Iceland both defied pre-tournament predictions at the expense of the continent's giants.
Golf? Danny Willett, 29 nike air max 2018 femme , won the green jacket at the Masters. Tennis? The all-conquering Serena Williams was a rare second best to Angelique Kerber at January's US Open. Rugby? Ireland put a stop to the All Blacks, and with it their incredible record of consecutive wins, and in Australia the Cronulla Sharks became NRL champs for the first time. Aussie Rules? Western Bulldogs won for the first time since 1954. Heck, there was even a refugee team at the Rio Olympics.
But, much like some of the political results nike air max 2018 homme pas cher , there may be an element of wishing none of this ever happened. Take Leicester City. Everyone may wish them well on their Champions League adventure, but there's a bit of every fan that wants to see them relegated. Year of the underdog? Maybe, but there's plenty of people that will want that particular dog to have had its day.
MELBOURNE, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Australian scientists have developed a revolutionary "bionic spine" which they hope will enable paralyzed patients to walk again.
The new device, developed by scientists in Melbourne nike air max 2018 homme , is the size of a paperclip and works by allowing patients with spinal injuries to control a robotic limb, an exoskeleton of sorts, just by thinking.
"What cochlear implants have done for hearing we're trying to do for mobility," Dr. Nicholas Opie, co-principal investigator of the project nike air max 2018 noir , said at a media conference on Tuesday.
Human trials of the device will begin next year at the Royal Melbourne Hospital with three participants who will be selected from the Austin Health spinal unit.
The device will be placed at the top of the motor cortex, the part of the brain which controls voluntary muscle movement, via a catheter inserted in the jugular vein in the neck.
The electrodes on the outside of the bionic spine will detect signals from the motor cortex and send them to a device implanted in the patient's shoulder which will translate signals into commands telling the bionic limbs to move.
Inserting the device through a vein means patients will avoid brain surgery, reducing any risks involved in the procedure as well as cutting the time required in hospital with the technique requiring only a day procedure.
Prof. Terrence O'Brien, of the Royal Melbourne Hospital www.airmax2018-pascher.fr , is overseeing the project made up of 39 neurologists and biomedical engineers from the hospital, Melbourne University and the Howard Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health.
"It's the holy grail for research in bionics," O'Brien said in a research article published in nature biotechnology.
O'Brien said while patients would initially have to be taught to think about moving their bionic limbs, over time the thoughts should become subconscious.
"For example if I want to pick up a phone but my hand is paralyzed I can use my other hand instead," he said.
"You have a normal way to use the brain to pick up the phone nike air max 2018 elite pas cher , but if that doesn't work you find another way. Your brain learns another function which can be harnessed to do what you've lost.
"What the stent is doing is putting a recorder over the signals in the brain and providing them with a conduit to move a limb via those signals bypassing the damaged area."
The first human trials of the device will take place in patients with lower-limb paralysis first as they have the most to gain from the device.
Home insurance also called homeowners insurance or hazard insurance is a protective cover that insures you and your private home from any sort of damage or destruction caused into it. The explanation for the destruction may be many such as eruption of fire inside your home, or certain natural calamities for example earthquake. Because you cannot predict the occurrence of these calamities, you should not predict the loss its possible you have in.
