Cerezo dismissed Cazorla link

first_img Reports in Spain and England suggested Atletico representatives have been in London in the last 24 hours with a view to persuading 28-year-old Cazorla to return to Spain after just one season at the Emirates Stadium. The versatile Spaniard scored 12 goals and provided 16 assists for the Gunners following his August move from Malaga. Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has described newspaper reports linking his club with a move for Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla as “invented”. But there is no truth to the story, according to Cerezo, who told “We have no news of Cazorla. These are invented stories that are made up every day.” The Madrid outfit have already tempered the loss of star striker Radamel Falcao to Monaco with the addition of David Villa and Leo Baptistao, and defender Martin Dimichelis, ahead of a Champions League campaign earned through a third-placed finish in the Primera Division. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

First algae powered building goes up in Hamburg

center_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The building is to serve as a test case and will be studied by various architects and engineers from around the world to determine if the design is feasible and if so, to perhaps serve as a model when erecting buildings in other cities. Citation: First algae powered building goes up in Hamburg (2013, April 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from To make use of the algae, which the team retrieved from the nearby Elbe river, it was put into large thin rectangular clear cases. Inside, the algae live in a water solution and are provided nutrients and carbon dioxide by an automated system. Each tank was then affixed to the outside walls of the building onto scaffolding that allows for turning the tanks towards the sun—similar to technology used for solar collectors. last_img read more

Heavy drinking may lead to breathing problems

first_imgDrinking too much alcohol may disrupt the healthy balance in the lungs and impact your breathing, a new study has warned. In the study, adults who drink excessively were found to have less nitric oxide in their exhaled breath than adults who do not drink.  The finding were published in the journal ‘Chest’, and is significant because nitric oxide helps protect against certain harmful bacteria that can cause respiratory infections.“Alcohol appears to disrupt the healthy balance in the lung,” said a researcher. Nitric oxide is a colourless gas produced by the body during respiration. The researchers examined data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health and Examination Survey (NHANES).  It conducts interviews and physical examinations to assess the health and nutritional status of Americans.For the study the researchers have examined data from 12,059 adults who participated in NHANES between the years 2007 and 2012. Excessive drinkers were defined as heavy drinkers (more than one drink per day on average for women and more than two drinks per day for men) and people who binge drink at least once per month (four or more drinks per occasion for women and five or more drinks for men).In the sample population researchers examined, 26.9 percent of the participants weto be excessive drinkers.  The researchers found that exhaled nitric oxide levels were lower in excessive drinkers than in adults who never drink, and the more alcohol an excessive drinker consumed, the lower the level of nitric oxide.In an asthma patient, the amount of exhaled nitric oxide in a breath test provides a good indication of how well the patient’s medication is working. “Excessive alcohol consumption might complicate the results of such tests. “Lung doctors may need to take this into consideration,” the researcher said.last_img read more
