MIAMI GARDENS, Aug. 8 (UPI) -- A deflected ball floated around the outside of the box before Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic came flying in and delivered a half-volley strike from about 18 yards out. The strike found the left side of the net for the decisive score in Barcelona's 2-1 win against Napoli Wednesday in Miami Gardens, Fla. More than 57,000 fans attended the 2019 LaLiga-Serie A Cup preseason matchup at Hard Rock Stadium. "We are happy with today's result," Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde said. "We tried to play with all of the players -- including the new ones. It was a pretty open game with a lot of options and a positive outcome."

Surgery helps older patients with meniscus tear better than observation, study says

Health
July 11 (UPI) -- Meniscal root tears, often associated with younger athletes, also commonly strike older people with degenerative knee problems, a new study says. Now, a new inside arthroscopic repair technique has proven to help repair these injuries in older adults, avoiding the need for more complicated surgeries, according to research presented Thursday at the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting. These root tears can loosen up the meniscus, which may lead to cartilage damage. "Our study found a significant improvement in all clinical outcome scores in the surgery group at two-year follow-up," said Jason L. Dragoo, a researcher at Stanford Medicine and study author, in a news release. The study included 48 people ages 50 and older who tore their meniscal root...

Ancent Peruvian microbrewery, sour ale helps explain longevity of the Wari empire

Science
April 19 (UPI) -- The study of an ancient microbrewery in Peru and its supply of a sour beer has provided scientists new insights into the stability of the Wari empire. For several years, researchers have been studying the remains of a brewing site at Cerro Baúl, an ancient city in southern Peru and the political center of the Wari empire, which lasted from 600 to 1100 AD -- a long time for an ancient dynasty. According to archaeologists, the brewing site played an important role in the development the empire's political organization. "It was like a microbrewery in some respects. It was a production house, but the brewhouses and taverns would have been right next door," Ryan Williams, an associate curator and head of anthropology at the Field Museum in Chicago, said in a news release.
