SAN JOSE — And the bragging rights go to Patrick Marleau.Mitch Marner said the Toronto Maple Leafs owed Marleau a win in San Jose and they delivered Thursday night in Mr. Shark’s second trip to SAP Center as a member of the visiting team.Marleau, who’s the Sharks all-time leader in points (1,082), goals (508) and games played (1,493) shed tears last October when he received a thunderous ovation of “Patty, Patty, Patty” chants during his first game in San Jose against his former-team.

Submarine designers are learning a thing or two from fish. The latest fish trick to imitate is the lateral line: a row of specialized sensors fish have along their flanks. Fish use these for synchronized swimming and predator avoidance. EurekAlert reported on work by scientists at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne to build artificial lateral line sensors on submarines to augment visual and sonar systems. The sensors on the artificial lateral line detect changes in water pressure and movement. They may one day allow submarine operators to “autonomously image hydrodynamic events from their surroundings.” Team lead Chang Liu expressed the motivation behind the work: “Although biology remains far superior to human engineering, having a man-made parallel of the biological system allows us to learn much about both basic science and engineering. To actively learn from biology at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organism level is still the bigger picture.”The 1960s slogan was: better living through chemistry. The 2005+ slogan is, better living through biology – or, make like an animal.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
A month after announcing a door-to-door campaign against EVMs, in which party workers would collect voters’ signatures against the use of EVMs in the Assembly polls, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) seems to have gone silent on the issue. Party members have denied that its silence has anything to do with MNS chief Raj Thackeray being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for over eight hours on August 22. Mr. Thackeray has said the ED grilling him would not stop him from speaking out against the government.Mr. Thackeray had announced the campaign last month and even held a press conference with senior leaders of the Congress, Nationalist Congress Party, Peasants and Workers Party and former MP Raju Shetti, demanding to switch to ballot paper. The opposition was also to hold a joint protest march in Mumbai, which was postponed following floods in western Maharashtra and the pre-poll tours of political parties. When asked about the campaign, senior MNS leader Anil Shidore said, “We have not let go of it. Yes, the door-to-door campaign which Mr. Thackeray had originally thought has not been launched yet, but it won’t be appropriate to link this with the ED probe,” he said. On Thursday, MNS leader and former MLA Nitin Sardesai was called for questioning by the ED in the ongoing probe into money laundering charges in the IL&FS case. Mr. Sardesai is Mr. Thackeray’s partner in Matoshri construction company. While Mr. Shidore blamed floods and the need for planning as causes for the delay, sources in the party said they are awaiting instructions from their leader. “There have been no instructions on how to go forward with the campaign since the probe,” said one leader from Mumbai. He said the ED is being used by the ruling party to silence the opposition. Mr Thackeray had also said he would address party workers about the ED’s questioning, but for the last 12 days there has been no communication with party workers.
