The stunning result blows the men's competition wide open as the six-time champion was widely expected to reach the January 29 final, where he was seeded to meet five-time runner-up Andy Murray. It also raises fresh questions for the world number two, who has been in a funk since completing a career Grand Slam and winning his 12th major title at last year's French Open. "It's one of these days when you don't feel that great on the court, don't have much rhythm, and the player you're playing against is feeling the ball very well," he shrugged. "That's sport." Mother's love While Djokovic was rocked by the defeat, there was joy for Istomin, who is coached by his mother and has never got beyond the third round in 11 visits to Melbourne Park. "I feel sorry for Novak, I was playing so good today," he said. "I surprised myself also." One beneficiary of Istomin's win could be world number three Milos Raonic, who was seeded to meet Djokovic in the semi-finals.

Parents participating in a decades-long study in Wisconsin were split into two groups, with one group given the materials while the other served as the control. Researchers then tracked a variety of outcomes over several years to assess the effects. Kids are natural scientists' with live fish in class The research follows up on initial findings from the study published in 2012 by Rozek and his coauthors showing that 11th- and 12th-grade students whose parents had access to these materials about the relevance of math and science took, on average, nearly one additional semester of STEM coursework in high school. In the latest study, researchers found that when parents received the STEM relevance information, their children showed improved math and science ACTs in addition to increased STEM course-taking in high school. The increased high school STEM coursework and higher scores on the math and science ACTs affected the number of college STEM classes in which students enrolled, the careers they pursued and their overall perception of the value of STEM fields.

The party did. In some cases, they didn't even know them before party leaders announced the decision. When the party chose the Vice President, then the chances of you finding a life-long buddy were much less, says Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian. So it was even more impressive that Rutherford B. Hayes, the 19th U.S. President, and his Vice President William A. Wheeler, who didn't know each other before getting paired together on the Republican ticket, literally had sing-alongs on Sunday evenings. According to Nan Card, the curator of manuscripts at the Rutherford B.

The Local Stefanfven is set to visit Iran after being invited by Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, with trade and Syria on the agenda. The Swedish PM's visit will take place on the 11th and 12th of February, the Government Offices of Sweden (Regeringskansliet) announced, and will also concern bilateral cooperation and developments in the region. “There are several reasons. One is because it is a major power in the region. With us sitting on the UN Security Council I have met President Rouhani in New York and I would like to meet him in Iran.

Heres a look back at Mondays action, plus a recap of how an absorbing and potentially crucial La Liga weekend panned out.

Tughrul Tower is a 12th-century monument located in Shahr-e Rey in southern Tehran. The 20-meter tall brick tower is the tomb of Seljuk ruler Tughrul Beg who died in 1063. The tower had a conical dome, which would have added to its height but collapsed during an earthquake. Experts believe that the building also functioned as a clock and one could tell the time of the day from the shape of sunlight on its knurls.
