SACRAMENTO – California’s fourth- and eighth-grade students made greater progress on national science tests than their counterparts around the nation, a national report card on student achievement in science said Wednesday. Despite that improvement, California’s students had further to go. At least half of all students still scored below basic on their science knowledge on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, more than any other state besides Mississippi. Fifty percent of California fourth-graders were below basic, compared to 34 percent nationally. For eighth-graders, 56 percent were below basic, compared to 43 percent nationally. Hawaii, Kentucky, South Carolina and Virginia were the only other states to show improvements in both grades.

7 7 7 Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid is live on talkSPORT on 10 May, 2017 at 19:45 (BST)Always a bridesmaid, never the bride is the saying, so maybe this will be the year Atletico Madrid finally become Champions League winners?Or perhaps not seeing as they must overcome a 3-0 semi-final first leg deficit against Real Madrid.They’ve come so close previously and here, talkSPORT.com looks at other near misses in football.READ MORE: Great teams that should have won a major trophy but fell short Bernd Schneider and everything – Former German international midfielder Schneider (pictured above, front row centre) was a Bundesliga runner-up with Bayer Levekusen in 2000 and 2002, a German Cup runner-up in 2002 and 2009, a Champions League runner-up in 2002, a World Cup runner-up with Germany in 2002 and then came third in the 2006 tournament on home soil, in addition to another third place at the 2005 Confederations Cup. Sore. 7 Atletico Madrid and the Champions League – click right for more stories of football heartbreak – Atletico look destined to miss out on Champions League glory again, exiting at the hands of rivals Real Madrid for the fourth season in a row, following final defeats in 2014 and 2016. Atleti have lost all three of the European Cup finals they have so far contested, all in agonising fashion. They lost to Bayern Munich in a 1974 European Cup final replay (in the days before penalty shootouts), having been seconds away from winning the first meeting. Then, 40 years later they were moments away from winning the final against Real, only to be taken to extra-time where they defeated once more. Two years on, Atleti lost on penalties to Real to complete a hat-trick of devastating defeats. Benfica and European competition since 1962 – Benfica won back-to-back European Cups in 1961 and 1962, but since they were beaten by Milan in the 63 final, they have failed to reclaim the prize. They lost subsequent finals in 1965, 1968, 1988 and 1990. In the UEFA Cup/Europa League, it is a similar story as they finished runners-up in the 1983, 2013 and 2014 finals. Benfica’s inability to claim European silverware since 1962 has been blamed on the ‘curse of Bela Guttmann’ so named after the Hungarian coach who led the club to continental glory in 1961 and ’62, only to be denied a pay rise and quit, declaring “not in a hundred years from now will Benfica ever be European champion”. 7 Leeds between 1965 and 1975 – In the 1960s and 1970s, Leeds were one of the best teams in Europe and won six major trophies, so it may seem strange to consider them ‘bridesmaids’, but for all their success Don Revie’s side made a habit of finishing runners up. On 12 occasions in that time Leeds finished second, including five runners up spots in the league between 1965 and 1972, three lost FA Cup finals and four defeats in Europe with trophies at stake, not least a controversial loss in their only ever European Cup final appearance. The Netherlands and the World Cup – The Dutch have appeared in three World Cup finals and come away with three World Cup loser medals. The ‘Total Football’ generation had back-to-back appearances in the 1974 and 1978 finals, losing to the host nations, West Germany and Argentina respectively, despite being considered superior to both victors. In the 2010 final the Netherlands were underdogs against Spain, and the match was 0-0 with four minutes of extra-time remaining, only for Andres Iniesta to break Dutch hearts. They managed a third-place finish at the 2014 edition in Brazil, and did claim victory at the 1988 European Championship, but success on the world stage remains a dream. Newcastle between 1996 and 2005 – Newcastle infamously blew a 12-point lead to finish Premier League runners up in 1996, then took second place again in 1997. A year later the Magpies lost the FA Cup final to double winners Arsenal, and were defeated in the 1999 final by treble-winning Manchester United. In 2000 Chelsea beat Newcastle in the semi-final, then Man United knocked them out at the same stage in 2005. The club haven’t won a major trophy since 1969, and the 10-year period between 1996 and 2005 remains the closest bar a lost 1974 FA Cup final they have come to ending that wait. And no, second tier titles don’t count as major. 7 7 Luigi Di Biagio – Despite being a top Italy international, playing for Inter and Roma, Di Biagio never won a major trophy. He left Roma in 1999, shortly before they won the Serie A title. At Inter, the midfielder was a Serie A runner-up in the 2002/03 season, a beaten finalist in the 2000 Italian Cup, as well as a UEFA Cup semi-finalist in 2002 and a Champions League semi-finalist in 2003. Shortly after he left Inter, the club began collecting titles and cups galore. Most agonisingly of all, Di Biagio was seconds away from winning Euro 2000 with Italy, only to see France grab a last gasp equaliser and extra-time winner in the final.
