KUALA LUMPUR
: Rio Olympics bound shuttler Tee Jing Yi who suffered an ankle injury recently claimed her injury was not serious and could still be on the flight to Rio de Janeiro Olympics in Brazil come August.

Jing Yi said her right ankle injury was healing fast and that she could even be ready to participate in the Australia Open in Sydney from June 7 to 12.

“My injury is not serious and I am recovering quickly although there is pain in my right ankle. My focus now will be to prepare for the Australia Open,” she told reporters.

Jing Yi, the country’s top women’s singles shuttler and ranked 29th in the world had qualified for the Rio Olympics on merit but limped out with an ankle injury in the First National Circuit final at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara last Saturday, fueling rumours that she would not be able to make it to Rio.

Media reports had also emerged that in the event that she failed to recover from the injury, youngster Goh Jin Wei would be her replacement.

However, women’s coach Wong Tat Meng said Jing Yi had recovered from the injury and was undergoing light training since yesterday.

“Jing Yi told me there is only slight pain and swelling around the ankle. I feel the injury is not serious and can be ready for Rio and feature in her second Olympics,” he told Bernama when contacted today.

Apart from Jing Yi, national shuttlers who have earned a ticket to Rio are two-time Olympic Games silver medallist Datuk Lee Chong Wei, Goh V Shem/Tan Wee Kiong (men’s doubles), Chan Peng Soon/Goh Liu Ying (mixed doubles) and Vivian Hoo/Woon Khe Wei (women’s doubles).

人造子宮動物實驗再獲成功,綿羊胎兒健康存活並出生

星期四,21/09/2017 美國費城的研究人員首次嘗試用人造子宮體外培育綿羊胎兒,獲得成功。如今,澳大利亞的科學家重複了這一實驗,綿羊胎兒在人造子宮內存活一周,之後健康出生。這項技術的最終目的是幫助人類早產兒平安度過發育的關鍵期。不過,出於謹慎考慮,研究人員稱五年內不會進行臨床實驗。 人造子宮是一個充滿液體的塑料袋,裡面的液體模擬真實母體子宮內的羊水。另有一個外界的氧合器(oxygenator)模擬胎盤的功能,負責氧循環。 人造子宮由胎兒的心臟來驅動。隨著胎兒發育,各個器官逐漸長大,在此過程中,心臟被密切監控,確保不會負載過重。 研究人員稱這項技術為「體外子宮環境」(ex-vivo uterine environment)。此前,美國費城兒童醫院用該方法成功培養了綿羊胎兒。現在,西澳大學、澳洲婦女嬰兒研究基金會和日本東北大學醫院的研究人員重複了實驗,並獲成功。 兩項研究中用到的都是 105-115 天大的綿羊胎兒,相當於人類 23 周的胎兒。 在此次重複實驗中,綿羊胎兒在人造子宮內發育了一周,之後健康出生,無腦部損傷。 美國每年大約有 3 …

最新研究结果试图解释月球形成之谜

星期四,21/09/2017 以色列和法国科学家最新发表在《自然》杂志上的报告说,月球可能是在同地球成分极其相似的一个天体撞击地球之后形成的。 这一理论显然有助于解释为什么地球和月球的组成远比科学家先前期待的要相近得多的原因。 科学家同时在《自然》杂志上发表了另外两篇文章,报告了先前不为人知的月球岩石中存在的细微差别。 科学家表示,这些最新的研究结果就月球的形成提供了更为可信和清晰的信息。 以色列和法国科学家在他们的报告中模拟了内层太阳系形成早期的动荡历史,对可能发生的撞击进行了量化处理。 模拟显示,地球在早期可能受到其他可能成为太阳系行星的天体的一系列撞击。 在这一系列的撞击中,最后一次撞击来自一个质量大约是地球十分之一的行星天体,所产生的碎片最终结合在一起形成了月球。 科学家过去相信,构成月球的大部分物质应该来自于撞击地球的天体,而这样的天体成分应该同地球存在着巨大的差异。 但是,事实并非如此。 科学家承认,地球同月球成分的高度一致性是上述大撞击理论所面临的挑战。 参与这项最新模拟研究的科学家表示,撞击地球的行星很有可能具有同地球极为相似的组成,这使得科学家只能在月球材料中发现非常微小的差别。 参与这项研究的以色列科学家佩列茨(Dr Hagai Perets)说,“我们发现,许多撞击行星与被撞击行星的成分非常相近,就像地球与月球的成分一样相近。” …
