Genes remain active after death

Science
Cells continue to function even after an individual dies.That's according to a scientific study published in Nature Communications.Analysing post-mortem samples, an international team of scientists showed that some genes became more active after death.As well as providing an important dataset for other scientists, they also hope that this can be developed into a forensic tool.Inside the cells of our bodies, life plays out under the powerful influence of our genes; their outputs controlled by a range of internal and external triggers.Understanding gene activity provides a perfect insight into what an individual cell, tissue or organ is doing, in health and in disease.Genes are locked away in the DNA present in our cells and when these are switched on, a tell-tale molecule called an RNA tran...

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reiterated his belief his side will not go through the Premier League season unbeaten after their 18-game top-flight winning run was ended by a goalless draw at Crystal Palace.City conceded an injury-time penalty but goalkeeper Ederson saved from Luka Milivojevic, prompting Match of the Day host Gary Lineker to say Guardiola's side have an "air of invincibility about them".The draw preserves their unbeaten record in the league this season and takes them 14 points clear at the top - the biggest gap between the leaders and the chasing pack at this stage of the season in top-flight history.Arsene Wenger's Arsenal went through the 2003-04 Premier League season unbeaten, but Guardiola thinks City will not match that feat."I am not thinking to be unbeaten," sai...

Indianapolis Colts remain in AFC South division hunt despite absence of Andrew Luck

Sports
INDIANAPOLIS -- With his Indianapolis Colts off to a 2-3 start to the season, head coach Chuck Pagano is looking ahead to Monday night's nationally televised game with AFC South rival Tennessee. The Jacksonville Jaguars are holding down first place in the division with a 3-2 record. But after that, it's a three-way tie for second (or last, depending on your point of view) between Houston, the Titans and the Colts. All three teams have the same 2-3 record. That's why this week's game is a crucial one for both Indianapolis and Tennessee. Whichever squad can pull off a win at Nissan Stadium in Nashville can take a positive step forward in the division. A loss, however, could make things tougher for either team to make a push to the post-season. Pagano says that he doesn't look at the division...

David Ginola has told Tottenham star Harry Kane to forget about transfer links with a move to Manchester United and stay put this summer.According to reports, Jose Mourinho has told United chiefs to go all out to sign the 23-year-old England striker – who netted 38 goals in 41 appearances for club and country last season.Kane has repeatedly insisted he sees his immediate future in a Tottenham shirt, and Spurs have made it clear they do not intend to sell the Premier League Golden Boot-winner this summer.However, they have been tempted to part with their biggest stars for the right price in the past, which is sure to make Spurs fans nervous as the transfer window opens.And Ginola has joined the chorus of supporters urging the Kane to stay at White Hart Lane, insisting the hitman is key to t
