Charlie Austin equalised for 10-man QPR at the KC Stadium seven minutes after Joey Barton was sent off.Nikica Jelavic punished some all-too familiar half-hearted Rangers defending by volleying Hull ahead in the 16th minute.The visitors failed to deal with Tom Huddlestone’s free-kick and Jelavic pounced after Steven Caulker’s weak header to fire into the bottom corner.Full-back Darnell Furlong, making his senior debut, almost equalised with a header that was tipped away by keeper Allan McGregor.Furlong, son of former QPR striker Paul Furlong, is playing because Nedum Onuoha and Mauricio Isla are both injured.Rangers are also without the likes of Richard Dunne and Leroy Fer, but Austin was passed fit to return following a foot problem.Barton, yellow-carded in his previous seven matches, was shown the red card shortly after the half-hour mark for lashing out at Huddlestone.But Rangers levelled when Austin headed home Matt Phillips’ right-wing cross – the striker’s 14th goal of the season.Austin celebrated by mockingly pretending to have a sore knee. Following a medical, Hull pulled out of a deal to sign him from Burnley prior to his move to QPR. QPR: Green, Furlong, Ferdinand, Caulker, Yun, Phillips, Barton, Henry, Kranjcar, Zamora, Austin Subs: McCarthy, Hill, Traore, Wright-Phillips, Vargas, Zarate, Doughty.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Scientists continue to find new things that undermine commonly-held beliefs about health and the environment. For example,Shower power: Drinking more and showering less may not help conserve water, say Australian scientists reported by EurekAlert. Sun bath: We were always warned to keep out of the midday sun to avoid cancer, right? Science Daily talks about Manchester scientists saying we need that midday sun exposure for Vitamin D production. All in moderation, of course; skin cancer is still a risk.Bone appetit: Contrary to earlier beliefs, exercise to reduce fat does not hurt your bones, says EurekAlert. It can even increase bone mass in senior citizens.Zitgeist: Mineral oil doesn’t give you zits, says another article on EurekAlert – unless it’s the industrial grade stuff.Schism: Not as many people are schizophrenic as previously thought, says EurekAlert. Now you need another excuse.One finding did match common-sense expectations. An article in Science1 found that youths who watch gun violence are more apt to engage in violent behavior (see also EurekAlert report).1Bingenheimer et al., “Firearm Violence Exposure and Serious Violent Behavior,” Science, Vol 308, Issue 5726, 1323-1326, 27 May 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.1110096].The point is not that any of these reports are the last word on those subjects, but if scientists cannot get things right about everyday issues regarding our daily habits, how can they presume to tell us about things millions of years ago?(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player With the likes of Manchester City star De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens, Jan Vertonghen and Thibaut Courtois in the side, a lot is expected of Martinez’s team in Russia next summer.However, the disappointing start to their preparations for the tournament has worried De Bruyne, 26, who feels their tactical set up is not working with the players at Martinez’s disposal.”Mexico were just tactically better. Their system made our five defenders sit deep and we were swimming in midfield – it was five against seven,” he told Het Laatste Niewus . “Look, we still put too much on our talents. As long as we don’t have a good tactical system, we will have difficulties against countries like Mexico. It’s a pity that we have not yet found a solution.”Of course we play with a system that is in principle very defensive, but it is filled with many attacking players who want the ball.”Then you have a bit of a problem, like against Mexico. It was a match in which we had very little possession and everyone in a system that doesn’t really fit. We now know that something must be changed against such teams.”But eventually Martinez decides. I think the trainer has to find a solution so that we can avoid such situations as against Mexico in the future.”The Rode Duivels continue their preparations for the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday when they host Japan.

State Cooperation minister Arup Roy went to the spot at around 4 pm and said: “The state government will help the injured persons as well as the family of the deceased. It is the result of negligence by the SER.” Meanwhile, fire brigade was informed to conduct rescue operation from under the collapsed portion.
