Joshua set to face Pulev on June 20 as Hearn hints at Tottenham showdown

first_imgHearn – who reportedly could have held the bout at the Emirates too but will make an official announcement on this fight next week – told talkSPORT: “Fury vs Joshua should take place in the capital. Unfortunately, there are also offers four four or five times more money what we can get here.”I’ll get loads of stick for taking the fight out of this country but I don’t make the decisions.”But as a sportsman… you should do it in the UK.”Joshua’s next fight will be in London. He could make more elsewhere but he wants London, it’s where he’d love to fight.”June 20 will be the date for Pulev. It’s the Joshua homecoming to London.”Hearn also spoke of how he had the chance to sign Fury to his Matchroom stable but passed on the chance because the Gypsy King was “30 stone” at the time.He said: “Two years ago I saw him in Monaco and I looked at him and thought, ‘You are never coming back’.boxing newsExclusiveCome on Ty-sonAJ rules out Tyson bout… as he fears fans would BOO if he beat Iron MikeDILL’S BEEN MADEFury expects WBC to allow him AJ fight before mandatory defence vs WhyteFURYIOUS POWERFury tipped to beat Anthony Joshua inside six rounds by ex-opponent RoganNEELEY THERETyson offered £900,000 for Peter McNeeley rematch ahead of comebackWHAT A TYM TO BE ALIVEMike Tyson vs Fury could be pro fight for world title says WBC chiefExclusiveTY’S BELTINGAnthony Joshua says Tyson Fury is on ‘hit list’ and is determined to fight him”What he’s done is incredible.

Test your smarts on Fibonacci patterns and robotic insects

first_img Titan A new study on metadata has revealed that smart phone call records can reveal all but which of the following? An error occurred loading the Quiz. Please try again later. Electrostatic adhesion. Getting a robot to fly is impressive, but once it’s in the air, how do you keep it there without draining too much energy? Nature’s answer is perching. Think of perching as landing without a runway. Birds, bats, and insects do it. They can land on narrow surfaces, upside down or right-side up, remain idle for long periods of time, and then take off by launching themselves from different positions. Now, researchers have made a robot that can perch by using electrostatic adhesion, or static electricity. The RoboBee, a flying robot that weighs less than a bee, uses tiny, flexible copper electrodes to alter the surface’s electric charge to be the opposite of its own. That makes it stick to the surface—anything from a panel of glass to a leaf. Once they can fly without a tether, these robots might be used to provide bird’s-eye views of disaster areas, detect hazardous chemicals, or enable communication in remote regions. Future designs could allow for perching on vertical surfaces, which means we could have our first robotic fly on the wall. LOADING Reality television A gene for large tonsils Question Magnetism Average Sticky pads Giraffes Europa. The moon of Jupiter, a favorite candidate for harboring life outside our planet, is capable of creating hydrogen and heat in its deep, subsurface ocean in a way similar to oceans here on Earth. The process, called serpentinization, takes place when massive cracks form in the ocean’s floor. These cracks allow seawater to seep inside, where it reacts with minerals to produce hydrogen and heat, ingredients that are essential for life as we know it. Meanwhile, intense radiation hitting ice on the moon’s surface creates another key ingredient: free oxygen molecules. But how soon will we know if Europa’s frozen depths actually harbor life? Maybe sooner than we think: Just last week, the U.S. Congress proposed funding not one—but two—missions to the icy moon. 0 / 10 Phone passwords. The rest, however, are all up for grabs: A new study of phone metadata now finds that highly revealing information can be gleaned from a simple list of who called whom. Researchers collected their data from 800 people who downloaded an app called MetaPhone. Once installed on a smart phone, it collects the phone numbers and timing of every call and text message made and received. If their privacy really is protected, then the records of their 1.2 million text messages and 250,000 calls should reveal little. In fact, the metadata revealed quite a lot. By using public information and cheap commercial databases to map phone numbers to businesses, organizations, and social media profiles, metadata revealed the location and identity of most of the people, the team reported last week. Even deeply private details such as chronic health problems, religious affiliations, and drug use emerged by simply linking people to various clinics, stores, and organizations through their call records. A curious new robot has been able to “perch” like an insect on multiple surfaces, using what technology?

It might not have been cool in your corner of the world, but rest assured the rest of us have been living in an oven. From India to Israel, temperatures have topped out at record-breaking levels, hitting 46°C (115°F) in the Red Sea resort of Eilat, Israel, and a whopping 51°C (124°F) in northern India, where several hundred people have already died of the heat. But the heat wave isn’t finished yet. Experts from NASA say already there’s a better than 99% chance that this year will be the hottest on record, making 2016 the third year in a row to have that dubious honor.

But that good luck was in short supply some 3.4 billion years ago, when giant meteoroids crashed into the surface of the planet, triggering tsunamis with waves between 50 and 120 meters high. These tsunamis, initially suggested by a major redistribution of sediments in the planet’s northern hemisphere, could answer a question that has long vexed scientists: If the Red Planet once had a large ocean covering its northern half, where is the evidence for its ancient shoreline? A new study proposes that it was erased by the ravaging waves of two tsunamis, each of which would have flooded 1 million square kilometers—about the same amount of land affected by the tsunami triggered by the dinosaur-killing asteroid on Earth some 66 million years ago. Okay, maybe reality television isn’t that much of a disaster! Antibiotic resistance. Antibiotics have been taking it on the chin lately. Not only has resistance to the medications been growing, but drug companies have been dropping antibiotic research programs because the drugs are difficult and expensive to make. Now, help is on the way. Scientists say they’ve found a new way to churn out drugs from one of the most widely used classes of antibiotics, called macrolides. The work could lead to new weapons against antibiotic-resistant infections, and possibly save millions of lives. 2 5 Antibiotic resistance Fluoride Toothworts Scientists last week reported finding complex Fibonacci patterns in these flowers: Pedophilia Top Ranker Giraffes. With its lanky legs and towering neck, the giraffe is a record-breaker: At 4.5 to 5.7 meters, it’s the tallest land animal on the planet. Even newborn calves are giants by human standards, entering the world at about 2 meters tall. Now, scientists have sequenced the genome of the giraffe—and that of its close cousin the okapi—to unravel the genetic mysteries behind the animal’s unique physique.

They’re a favorite of mathematical biologists, who love the way they demonstrate a hidden rule that they say shapes the patterns of life: the Fibonacci sequence. First described in the 13th century, the sequence—a set in which each number is the sum of the previous two (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, …)—can be found in everything from pineapples to pine cones. In sunflowers, if you count the clockwise and counterclockwise spirals that reach the outer edge, you’ll usually find a pair of numbers from the sequence: 34 and 55, or 55 and 89, or—with very large sunflowers—89 and 144. Now, researchers are reporting that a new citizen science project has found patterns that are even more complex, with Fibonacci and near-Fibonacci sequences competing and clashing across the faces of one in five sunflowers. Why? The short answer is that nature is messy. But the long answer, say scientists, may be even more complex.

Enceledus Formaldehyde flooring Scientists have finally sequenced the genome of this African megafauna: In other space news, NASA scientists said they may have found evidence for this natural disaster on Mars: Genetically engineered crops. The public debate around the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and whether to label them has continued to rage. But behind the scenes, some things have changed. Agricultural markets are bracing for an explosion of new plants designed using the gene-editing technology CRISPR, and regulators are struggling with how to assess their safety. Last week’s report tackles mainstay questions in the well-worn GMO debate. Are these plants safe to eat? How do they affect the environment? Do they drive herbicide-resistance in weeds or pesticide-resistance in insects? But it also weighs in on a more immediate conundrum for federal agencies: what to do with gene-edited plants that won’t always fit the technical definition of a regulated GE crop. Venus flytraps Back here on Earth, we’ve been dealing with our own troubles.
