‘Lazy’ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s poor goal record after signing huge new contract shows Arsenal captain may be ‘another Mesut Ozil’ as Martin Keown calls for Gabriel Martinelli to replace him

Sports
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s struggles in front of goal since signing a whopping £350,000-a-week contract are a big concern for Arsenal. The striker was brought in for a club-record fee of £54million back in January 2018, and he netted 54 Premier League goals in his first two-and-a-half seasons at the Emirates.

DNA-based molecular tagging system could replace printed barcodes

DNA-based molecular tagging system could replace printed barcodes

Science
Nov. 3 (UPI) -- A new DNA-based molecular tagging system could change the way goods, from vaccines to textbooks, are tracked. The trackable plastic tags commonly found on clothes do more than prevent retail theft. Advertisement Radio frequency identification -- and other tracking technologies like barcodes and QR codes -- helps manufacturers, logistics operators, transportation coordinators and warehouse managers keep tabs on inventory. In hospitals, tracking technologies help ensure the right medicines get to the right patients. Though ubiquitous, these traditional methods for tracking products have plenty of flaws. Tags can be damaged or removed. For some applications, they're too bulky, impractical and not easily scaled. Enter Porcupine, the new molecular tagging system developed by r...

Astronauts complete spacewalk to replace batteries on space station

Astronauts complete spacewalk to replace batteries on space station

Science
June 26 (UPI) -- Two NASA astronauts conducted a spacewalk to replace lithium ion batteries outside of the International Space Station on Friday with only a minor snafu -- the loss of a mirror. Astronauts Chris Cassidy and Robert Behnken began the spacewalk at 7:32 a.m. EDT and were back safely inside the ISS just over 6 hours later. Advertisement Upon first exiting the ISS, though, Cassidy said a small mirror became detached from his spacesuit and floated into space. Astronauts use small mirrors on their spacesuits to help them see different angles while on spacewalks. NASA said the loss of the mirror didn't pose a hazard and allowed the spacewalk to continue. The spacewalk was the seventh for Cassidy, while Behnken ventured in open space for the eighth time. Friday's spacewalk was the f...
