Death toll in Brazil nursery arson attack rises to 9

first_imgA girl who was burned in an arson attack at a nursery school in Brazil succumbed to her wounds on Saturday, bringing the overall death toll to nine people.The four-year-old girl had been transferred to a hospital in Belo Horizonte , the state capital of Minas Gerais, some 370 miles (600 kilometers) north of the small town of Janauba where the attack occurred, according to Folha de Sao Paulo, a local newspaper.A security guard at the nursery sprayed his young victims with alcohol before setting fire to the building. He himself died from burns a few hours later.According to local authorities, he had suffered from mental health issues since 2014.In total, eight four-year-old children were killed, along with a teacher aged 43. Another 40 people were treated at three hospitals in the region.Dozens gathered for the first funerals of victims at a cemetery in Janauba on Friday afternoon, according to an AFP photographer.Small white coffins were opened for a few minutes as devastated family members wept.”What has happened is inexplicable. I have no words. When I heard about the fire on the radio, I immediately thought of my grandchildren.

Blood And Chaos In Venezuela – 26 Dead In Wake of Ongoing

first_imgThe unrest shows no sign of slowing down. Another demonstration was called for midday Wednesday in which Maduro’s opponents planned to try again to march downtown to deliver a message to the nation’s ombudsman, whose job is to stand up for citizens’ rights but who the opposition has tagged the “defender of the dictator.”Venezuela’s chief prosecutor, Luisa Ortega Diaz, on Tuesday put a spotlight on the extent of the violence, saying more than 400 people had been injured and nearly 1,300 detained since the protests began in response to a Supreme Court ruling last month that stripped the opposition-controlled congress of much of its powers.April 26th: Pictures of today’s protest #Venezuela pic.twitter.com/nS2d2mmQZO— Antonio (@antonioscastles) April 26, 2017 Video Playerhttps://cdn.hpm.io/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/26141709/0426VZLA.mp400:0000:0000:57Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Basketball shot selection analyzed mathematically

first_img More information: arxiv.org/abs/1107.5793 Source: Wikipedia © 2010 PhysOrg.com Explore further Analyzing Effects Of Hoops Ball Hog In the sport of basketball players are constantly faced with the choice of whether to shoot for the hoop when a shot opportunity arises or to hold on to the ball and hope a better opportunity will arise. Now a theoretical physicist from the University of Minnesota in the US has analyzed the problem mathematically and determined the best strategy. Citation: Basketball shot selection analyzed mathematically (2011, August 5) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-08-basketball-shot-mathematically.html Graduate student Brian Skinner decided to analyze basketball shot selection after hearing about traffic flow research that reached the unexpected conclusion that average commuting time could be reduced by road closures that force drivers to travel by routes they would otherwise avoid in order to try to minimize their own commuting time. The traffic flow diagrams reminded Skinner, an enthusiastic fan of basketball, of diagrams of the flow of basketball players in a game. The surprising conclusion also reminded him of a basketball theory named after Patrick Ewing, a high-scoring basketball player. When the games of Ewing’s team were analyzed it was discovered that the team won more games if the big-scoring Ewing was absent.Skinner realized that most of the mathematical equations and variables used in analyzing traffic flow could also be applicable to basketball and the movement of the ball in the game. His analysis, published at arXiv.org, concentrated on the movement of the ball as it approached the hoop.Skinner’s model aimed to find out how likely the shot is to go in before the player should make the shot. Shots more likely to go in were classed as higher quality shots, and the model assumed that the quality of shot opportunities falls randomly. The mathematical model demonstrated the optimal strategy for scoring the maximum points is for the team to take their time and concentrate on making high quality shots as long as there is sufficient time remaining for the shot. The model also concluded that a team playing a faster game and having twice the shot opportunities of its rival should not have double the shooting rate, but taking more time and being more selective about which shots to take would give them the biggest advantage. So, for example, if the slower team shoots at an average rate of 20 seconds, the team playing twice as fast should not shoot every 10 seconds but should take an extra three seconds on average, giving a shooting rate of 13 seconds.
