The Premier League and the UK Government have approved the sale of Chelsea Football Club to a consortium led by American businessman Todd Boehly . Boehly, 48, is leading the group in the record-breaking purchase of the third-best team in England after 19 years of ownership from ousted oligarch Roman Abramovich . Times have been good for the Blues, with 21 trophies including five Premier Leagues and two Champions Leagues. The takeover, worth £4.25billion, comes at the end of lengthy negotiations and will leave Abramovich without a penny from the sale, as his assets are still frozen after he was sanctioned following Russia ’s invasion of Ukraine . A government statement read: "Late last night the UK Government reached a position where we could issue a licence that permits the sale of Chelsea Football Club. "Following extensive work, we are now satisfied that the full proceeds of the sale will not benefit Roman Abramovich or any other sanctioned individual," it … [Read more...] about New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly – how rich is he and how did he make his money?

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 6 As a brand, Asian carp have two big problems: The name strikes many as both racially insensitive and decidedly unpalatable -- a trash fish. How about some "copi" instead? In a marketing event Wednesday, Illinois officials announced the focus-group-approved name for the prolific invasive species. With the fresh consumer brand, they are seeking to gut the fish's numbers and reduce the looming ecological threat it poses to the Great Lakes. Soon, they hope, folks will be noshing on copi sliders and cooking up copi tacos, eating into the invader's population. " 'Copi' rose to the top. It's kind of fresh, maybe kind of Mediterranean," Kevin Irons, assistant fisheries chief at the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, said of the two-year name search. "Copi sounded like a fish." That's copi as in copious, which from an environmental perspective is the problem … [Read more...] about Asian carp threaten the Great Lakes. Will calling them ‘copi’ help?
Labour has not had much good news to celebrate in this election campaign, but there is one ray of hope for the party. The NHS is now cited by more people than Brexit when they are asked to choose from a list of issues likely to determine how they will vote. According to Ipsos Mori, health (60 per cent) has overtaken Brexit (56 per cent). The NHS is the issue cited most often by people who backed Labour at the 2017 election (68 per cent). But it is also important for those who voted Conservative then: 58 per cent mention health, putting it in second place behind Brexit (69 per cent). However, other polls suggest that when people have to choose the single most important issue, Brexit trumps health. If the Conservatives were hoping their manifesto pledge to provide “50,000 more nurses” would help to neutralise the NHS issue, they will likely be disappointed. Although initially reported by much of the media as a pledge to recruit 50,000 extra nurses, it emerged that the … [Read more...] about Jeremy Corbyn hopes the NHS might be Boris Johnson’s weakness – but it’s not enough to stop a Tory win
LONDON (AP) – A defiant British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was in a stubborn standoff with his frustrated Conservative Party on Saturday, after two thumping special election defeats renewed calls for a major change of government direction. Johnson dismissed the defeats as predictable mid-term blues, and said people expecting “some sort of psychological transformation” from him should know “that is not going to happen.” The prime minister told the BBC said he believed “voters are heartily sick of hearing about me and the things I´m alleged to have done wrong. What they want to hear is what we’re doing for them.” “What I want to do is to get on with changing and reforming and improving our systems and our economy,” he said. Despite the bullish tone, this is a perilous moment for Johnson, who is due to be out of the U.K. until Thursday at a Commonwealth meeting in Rwanda, a Group of Seven leaders’ gathering in Germany and a NATO summit in Spain. Simmering concerns about … [Read more...] about Defiant Boris Johnson Baulks at Calls to Resign After By-Election Losses
Scientists in Germany are cautiously optimistic about new multiple sclerosis therapy possibilities after decoding the functions of two crucial proteins. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. There is no known cure, and treatments attempt to improve function after an attack and prevent new attacks. Almost 3 million people globally suffer from MS. Now, researchers at Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, have announced a breakthrough in the investigation of the proteins Tenascin C and Tenascin R. MS is the most common demyelinating disease, or illnesses of the nervous system in which the myelin sheath of neurons is damaged. This damage impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves. The reduction in conduction can cause deficiency in sensation, movement and cognition. The myelination process requires the migration, proliferation, and differentiation of so-called oligodendrocyte … [Read more...] about Protein Study Could Pave Way for New Multiple Sclerosis Therapy
London: Next time you spot a spider in your bedroom, don't panic, as scientists say one of their species may actually help boost a man's libido. A single bite from the Brazilian wandering spider has been shown to have side-effects including four-hour long erections. Now, researchers at the Medical College of Georgia in the US found that the toxins in the arachnid's venom contains a possible breakthrough for erectile dysfunction, the Daily Mail reported. The eight-legged creature -- also known as the armed spider, banana spider or Phoneutria nigriventer -- is found in South and Central America. Dr Kenia Nunes, a physiologist at the college, said: "The venom of the Phoneutria nigriventer spider is a very rich mixture of several molecules. "These molecules are called toxins, and then we have various toxins in this venom with different activity. "Because of this, when a human is bitten by this spider, we can observe many different symptoms including priapism (or persistent … [Read more...] about Spider venom may be the new Viagra
