Championship results and table: West Brom move six points clear of Leeds and Fulham, while Cardiff creep closer to Play-Offs

Sports
West Bromwich Albion moved six points clear at the top of the Championship table after a 2-1 victory over Reading. Despite falling behind to George Puscas’ penalty, goals from Matheus Pereira and captain Kyle Bartley put some clear daylight between Slaven Bilic’s men and the travelling pack. Getty Images - Getty Captain Kyle Bartley scored the winner for West Brom Fulham were held to a 1-1 draw by Millwall in controversial circumstances on Wednesday night as they failed to capitalise on Leeds’ draw 24 hours earlier. It looked like plain sailing for Scott Parker’s men at The Den when Aleksandr Mitrovic stroke home Joe Bryan’s cross in the third minute, but it was soon to go horribly wrong. After failing to clear a corner, the ball managed to find its

Air parcel deliveries move step closer in drone trial

Air parcel deliveries move step closer in drone trial

Technology
Pilotless drones are to be tested in the UK as part of a step towards making Amazon-type deliveries by air a reality.An official trial will involve an unmanned small aircraft tested beyond an operator's visual line of sight, something that is currently banned under normal aviation rules. A control room operator "will monitor semi autonomous drones being flown 50 miles away, initially carrying out inspections on construction sites" in an advanced evaluation in February, reports the Times.It comes after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) published a guide aimed at making unmanned drone flights an "everyday occurrence".The CAA said potential benefits could include drone parcel deliveries, long-distance aerial surveys of infrastructure and construction, as well as surveying accident and crime ...
Study in mice moves researchers closer to staph vaccine

Study in mice moves researchers closer to staph vaccine

Health
Dec. 24 (UPI) -- Staph infections pose a serious health threat -- particularly since they are often resistant to many currently available antibiotics. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis think they may be one step closer to developing a vaccine that can prevent the spread of these deadly bugs. Their findings were published Tuesday in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. "Across the globe, staph infections have become a pervasive health threat because of increasing antibiotic resistance," senior investigator Juliane Bubeck Wardenburg, director of the Division of Pediatric Critical Care at Washington University, said in a press release. "Despite the medical community's best efforts, the superbug has shown a consistent ability to elude treatment" Staph bac...
Scientists closer to solving Newton’s ‘three-body problem’

Scientists closer to solving Newton’s ‘three-body problem’

Science
Dec. 18 (UPI) -- For more than three centuries, Newton's laws of motion have helped scientists understand the relationships between body of mass and the forces that act on it, like the forces acting on a planet orbiting the sun. Newton's equations weren't perfect, however. When trying to account for three bodies -- a moon orbiting a planet orbiting a sun, for example -- Newton struggled to solve the equations related to mass and motion. Simply put, neither Newton's laws of motion, nor any physical laws, explain the movements of three bodies in orbit. The equations don't compute. Fast forward 350 years, and scientists have made one of the largest steps yet in solving Newton's three-body problem. For the new research, scientists focused on recent discoveries related to unstable three-body...
