Watch live: Astronauts to play first ever tennis match in space

Science
Aug. 21 (UPI) -- On Tuesday evening, four astronauts aboard the International Space Station will make history. They will attempt to play the first-ever tennis match in space. NASA astronaut Drew Feustel, commander of Expedition 56, has previously professed his love of tennis and was instrumental in arranging the historic match. He will be joined by fellow NASA astronauts Ricky Arnold and Serena Auñón-Chancellor, as well as Alexander Gerst, of the European Space Agency. The match will be streamed live on YouTube and Facebook at 8:30 p.m. ET. "We rocketed two mini Net Generation racquets and balls to Feustel on the ISS," Amy Choyne, chief marketing officer with the USTA, said in a news release. "Drew's passion for tennis and space travel is inspiring our youth to serve to the ...
Corporate governance standards at PSBs much better than ever before, says Goyal

Corporate governance standards at PSBs much better than ever before, says Goyal

Emphasising that corporate governance standards being followed by public sector banks are much better than ever before, Finance Minister Piyush Goyal today said the government has stopped the "phone-call thing" coming in from Delhi to the banks. In an apparent dig at the previous UPA regime, Goyal said that not a single phone call would go to "give a loan, to address a loan, to restructure a loan or to settle a loan". Against the backdrop of high amounts of stressed assets in the banking system, the ruling BJP had alleged that earlier, banks used to get calls from the higher ups in the national capital to provide loans to various entities. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also made references to it while replying to the debate on no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha last month. Goyal told...

'Almost every financial plan that’s ever been written is wrong': United Capital's Duran

Finance
If you’ve managed to pull together a strategy for your personal finances, odds are it’s not the right one for you. That’s because many financial plans fail to consider the unique characteristics of an investor’s life, including his or her biases and the fluidity of investing goals, said Joe Duran, founder and CEO of United Capital. “Almost every financial plan that’s ever been written is wrong,” he said. “It’s wrong because it makes two assumptions that are almost certainly wrong,” Duran said...
Bilingual microbe is first ever to use two different DNA translations

Bilingual microbe is first ever to use two different DNA translations

Science
June 15 (UPI) -- Scientists have discovered a microbe that uses two different translations of DNA, the world's first. The bilingual nature of the microbe makes it near impossible for scientists to predict which proteins its genome codes for. DNA is composed of a sequence of four chemical bases, or nucleobases, represented by the letters A, T, C and G. Different sequences code for different combinations of nucleic acids, the building blocks of proteins, which fuel myriad biochemical processes inside the cells of all living organisms. Three nucleobases, called codon, code for a single amino acid, and until now, scientists assumed the same three nucleobases always coded for the same amino acid. But while studying the genomes of a unique group of yeasts, scientists realized they'd found an e...
