I'm still fighting," said the 34-year-old, who was a Wimbledon semi-finalist in 1999 aged 17 before personal difficulties forced her out of the game for years. The Croat beat third seed Agnieszka Radwanska en-route to the quarter-finals and Pliskova, last year's US Open finalist, is wary of the threat she poses. "Definitely, she's playing really well here," she said. "These conditions probably suit her as well. She has to be playing well when she's in the quarter-finals. I just going to expect tough match. I have to be ready. "It's going to be probably a fast game, not many rallies. So I have to be really ready on my legs, serving well. I think I have good chance." — AFP

Exactly what I think about him as the first man, Handler said.

A minister told me they thought there was a 20% chance that they may also say that Holyrood and the other devolved assemblies should also get a say on triggering Article 50. If that does happen, a 20% chance, that would be political dynamite, and that could you rail the Goverment's timetable of triggering Article 50 by the end of March -- could derail.

PREDICTION, wrote Karl Popper, a philosopher, is “one of the oldest dreams of mankind—the dream of prophecy, the idea that we can know what the future has in store for us, and that we can profit from such knowledge by adjusting our policy to it.” It is a dream from which Donald Trump provided a shock awakening. Over the summer of 2015, as Mr Trump surged in primary polls, analysts and journalists laid out, often in precise and gory detail, the steep trajectory of his inevitable fall. “Why the Republican Party shouldnt worry about the Donald” and “Donald Trump’s Six Stages Of Doom” are representative headlines from those months. A year later, in an arena in Cleveland, Mr Trump accepted his party’s nomination. But he didnt stand a chance in the general, according to the people for whom predicting these sorts of things is their business. On the morning of November 8th, the Huffington Post gave Hillary Clinton a 98% chance of being elected president.

That theory, formed over decades by Wolynes and colleagues, describes many aspects of how glasses form when a liquid is cooled. Shear bands He says two factors prompt the formation of shear bands in metallic glasses. One is that when glass is formed, it's a little weaker in some places than others. In that respect, the bands are partly programmed into the glass. Zoom in on metallic glasses to find fractals The other factor is the element of randomness, he says. All chemical reactions require concentrating energy in some particular mode of motion, but motion in glass is especially complex, so you have to wait around for an activating event to happen by chance. You need a sort of nucleation event. These seemingly random activation events, molecular couplings that happen naturally as a supercooled liquid flows, become rare when the glass settles into its shape but ramp up when the glass is stressed.

I think that's a sign of respect. In Southampton we knew it was not a good game for us. Probably both managers were frustrated. They had chances. It was only a 1-0, that is no different for us. Still everything is possible for us. I can feel it around us that it's not that positive anymore. But I know at Anfield on Wednesday night there will be wonderful atmosphere. Liverpool's official Twitter account also noted Klopp 's expectations of his team and the home supporters: Philippe Coutinho and Joel Matip are available for Liverpool after recent absences, per Ballard. Coutinho has been slowly brought back into action by his manager and could start against Saints as the hosts chase goals. Southampton's form has improved in recent weeks, but Liverpool have been on shaky ground as they've struggled for positive results and performances. However, the chance of getting to a cup final will guarantee Anfield is alive and vocal on Wednesday night, as Klopp attempts to earn the right to walk his team out at the spiritual home of English football.

Apple today released watchOS 3.1.3 , an update that follows the watchOS 3.1.1 update that was released on December 12 but pulled later that same day due to installation issues. watchOS 3.1.3 can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update. To install the update, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the iPhone. An iPhone running iOS 10 or later is required to download the new software, but it is available for all Apple Watch models. No significant changes or feature additions were discovered in watchOS 3.1.3, but presumably, it fixes the 3.1.1 installation issues that were bricking some Apple Watch Series 2 models, allowing customers who did not get a chance to download 3.1.1 to finally get the bug fixes included in that update.

In brief, researchers explained that “…other intelligent, technology producing species is very likely to have evolved before us.” Scientists suggest that even one chance in a trillion indicates that our civilization on Earth has happened around 10 billion other times over cosmic history. The million dollar question when it comes to aliens is of course: Is there life other than ours existing in the vast universe? This question leads to numerous other sub-questions like, if there is life elsewhere, how long have these alien civilizations existed, and can they communicate with us? For Centuries, people have wondered and imagined whether or not there is life beyond planet Earth. Giordano Bruno an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and cosmological theorist proposed that the stars were just distant suns surrounded by their own exoplanets and raised the possibility that these planets could even foster life of their own.

Delaying school start times could help teenagers sleep better, say experts, and could give them a better chance at success later. A new study shows that students who attend schools that start earlier in the day sleep less, are less likely to meet the national sleep recommendations for their age, and are more often tired in the morning. It is time that we have a conversation about school start time in Canada, says lead author Geneviève Gariépy, a postdoctoral student in McGill University's Institute of Health and Social Policy. The problem is that early school start times conflict with the natural circadian clock of teenagers, Gariépy says. As teenagers go through puberty, their circadian clock gets delayed by two to three hours. Could better sleep prevent gestational diabetes? By the time they reach junior high, falling asleep before 11 pm becomes biologically difficult, and waking up before 8 am is a struggle.
