first_imgEnlarge ImageWe’re getting closer and closer to the 2019 Indy 500, and you’re going to need to know how to stream it. Patrick Smith/Getty Images The Indianapolis 500 is one of the year’s most significant motorsport events. Like most motorsports events, it’s getting tougher to watch if you’re a cord-cutter. We’re here to help you with that. Here’s how to watch the Indy 500 today.The first thing you have to know if you’re planning on getting your Indy on is when you actually need to sit down and watch it. The 500 will begin at 12:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 26. The 500 is named for the length of the race in miles, which works out to around 200 laps around the famed Brickyard.The easiest way for you to tune in online is if you have a cable subscription already, then it’s just a matter of signing onto NBC’s website with your login information and you’re all set. The odds are good though that if you’re reading this, you don’t have a cable subscription. So what can you do? • Huge variety of live channels, including HBO and the DVR storage is included Tags 2019 Jeep Wrangler review: First-place performance Streaming options for the Indy 500 $44.99 at Hulu YouTube TV Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?

It’s not cheap at $44.99 per month, but it is an option. The other bonus of this program is that it includes a chunk of DVR space so if you want to prolong the magic, you can record the 500 and watch it again, like a weirdo. It also includes a subscription to regular ol’ Hulu, which has been pumping out some great original programming lately.The next choice is with YouTube TV. This costs around $49.99 per month, and the NBC Sports package is included with your monthly fee. The catch is that the NBC Sports deal isn’t available everywhere, so you’ll want to double-check and make sure that you can get it where you live. Like Hulu, you can also DVR shows for later.You can also choose to go with something like FuboTV. It’s another monthly subscription, this time it’s $54.99, but you get access to a bunch of channels, and it’s got a free trial offer that some people (not us, obviously) would be able to take advantage of to maybe see some hot wheel-to-wheel racing.102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500Enlarge ImageThe 103rd running of the Indy 500 is going to be a good one, and you don’t want to be the only one of your race-obsessed friends to not watch it live, do you? Patrick Smith/Getty Images Another pricey option, but one that gives you a lot of other TV-watching opportunities (including HBO) is DirecTV Now. Its standard package offers you 45 channels for $50 per month. There’s an upgraded package with more sports and movies for $70 per month, too. The cool thing about DirecTV Now is that you don’t need to have a DirecTV satellite package. It’s available as a standalone online subscription.Sling TV is another monthly option, but unlike the others, it’s got a sub-$30 cost, and that is awesome. Again you get a bunch of channels, and your game console probably has an app for it that you can download. The downside is that, once again, NBC Sports is only available in some markets. Double-check before you commit.Finally, those with naught but lint in their pockets and a dream in their hearts can tune into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway livestream. It’s free, it’s streamable pretty much anywhere, and we’re betting the coverage will be OK at the very least.Honorable mention goes to the HDHomeRun by Silicon Dust. This little gizmo allows you to watch live TV on your Apple TV or the like. The downside is that they start at around $70 and you need to buy a separate digital TV antenna. Still, it’s not subscription-based, so you can enjoy all the broadcast TV you want, indefinitely. You can also install Silicon Dust’s app on your phone or your computer to stream live TV to those devices as long as you have their hardware set up and receiving in your home.Finally, if you want to truly be a baller, go to the race. General admission is only $35, and you get the bonus of experiencing one of the world’s great motorsports events in person. You’ll have to figure out how to get to Indianapolis, but that can be another website’s problem. $25 at SlingTV Sling TV service DirecTV Hulu YouTube Apple 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better More From Roadshow Service 4 Photos $54.99 at FuboTV Comments Starting monthly cost (USD) Access to hundreds of shows and movies including original programming from Hulu plus all the live TV channels you probably want anyway Applelast_img read more

Toyota and CATL are partnering up on battery production

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment 29 Photos Car Industry Auto Tech 2020 Lincoln Aviator plug-in hybrid first drive: This changes everything Tags More From Roadshow Toyota Enlarge ImageSoon the batteries for Toyota’s many hybrids, PHEVs and hydrogen cars could be coming from Chinese supplier CATL. Nick Miotke/Roadshow If you’re a major automotive manufacturer, it’s pretty much mandatory that you be working on some kind of electric vehicle development right now, especially if you do a lot of business in China.That’s certainly the position in which Toyota finds itself, so it’s had to go out, beat the bushes and find itself a sizable Chinese EV battery provider — which it did in the form of CATL, according to an announcement made by Toyota on Wednesday.If CATL sounds familiar, it’s because it’s also working with Volvo to provide batteries for that brand and its Polestar subsidiary. CATL is also working with Honda and was in talks with Tesla for a while to provide cells for Gigafactory Shanghai, though that ended up not working out.”To further promote the widespread use of electrified vehicles, CATL and Toyota agree that a stable supply of batteries is critical and that battery technology must be further developed and advanced,” Toyota representatives said in a statement.Stable is the key word there. Batteries are a volatile business, especially considering the vast amounts of relatively rare and expensive minerals they require. Thankfully for companies like CATL, many of those minerals are being mined inside China’s borders, but other firms elsewhere in the world haven’t been so fortunate.This news of Toyota’s battery partnership comes hot on the heels of its announcement that it plans to offer an electrified version of every single Lexus model by 2025 as well as receiving half of its revenue from the sale of electrified vehicles by 2025.

Johnson loses first byelection test as British PM

first_imgBritain`s prime minister Boris Johnson, accompanied by Britain`s home secretary Priti Patel, speaks at the first meeting of the National Policing Board at the Home Office in London, on 31 July. Photo: AFPBritain’s Boris Johnson lost his first test as prime minister on Friday after his candidate was edged out by a pro-EU rival in a by-election that slims his parliamentary majority to one.Thursday’s vote in the Welsh sheep farming community of Brecon and Radnorshire offered a stark choice between a Brexit-backing candidate from Johnson’s Conservative party and a Liberal Democrat who wants to preserve Britain’s four-decade stay in the EU.Johnson dropped by the region on Tuesday to help out Chris Davies — a Conservative MP who was forced to step down after becoming embroiled in an expanses scandal.Davies protested his innocense and contested the seat again but the Liberal Democrats’ Jane Dodds received 13,826 votes to Davies’ 12,401 after having two smaller pro-EU parties back her bid.The result extends a recent revival for the Liberal Democrats at the major parties’ expense.Its firm stand against Britain’s split from the European Union saw it come a surprise second behind populist eurosceptic Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in the European Parliament elections in May.Farage’s candidate ate into the Conservative’s support by picking up 3,331 votes. The main opposition Labour Party — once a dominant force in Wales — came in a distant fourth with just 1,680.”My very first act as MP when I arrive in Westminster will be to find Boris Johnson wherever he is hiding and tell him loud and clear — stop playing with the futures of our communities and rule out no-deal Brexit,” a visibly relieved Dodds said.Test of strengthThe election was viewed as a test of strength for the “Boris bounce” that has helped the Conservatives regain a slim lead in some national opinion polls.Control of Brecon and Radnorshire has swung between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives since the 1990s. It voted 52 per cent to leave the European Union in the 2016 vote — mirroring the UK-wide result.But the controversies surrounding Davies turned this into an unusual contest whose outcome might not reflect either Johnson’s or Brexit’s true level of wider support.The defeat still leaves Johnson in danger of being unable to control parliament in the crucial runup to Britain’s scheduled departure from the EU on October 31.MPs are already plotting ways to thwart his threat to take Britain out by the twice-delayed deadline without a divorce deal.Johnson also needs to be able to pass legislation to make the potentially chaotic “no-deal” outcome as smooth as possible — and to pass any compromise he might suddenly strike with Brussels.The 650-seat chamber is fractured and includes MPs who at times switch sides or abstain at pivotal moments.This leaves Johnson dependent on the whims of just a few legislators at one of the most crucial points in British history since World War II.Fears of a no-deal divorce have already pushed the pound to its lowest levels since Britons first voted to leave in June 2016.The Bank of England warned Thursday that a messy split would drop the pound even further and slow growth this year and next to 1.3 percent from around 1.5 percent.Brexit PR blitzThe pound’s slump reflects broader business jitters both in Britain and its main trading partners in Europe.Johnson’s government is trying to boost its negotiating hand with Brussels by showing that the country is ready for any outcome.Finance minister Sajid Javid announced Wednesday an extra £2.1 billion ($2.6 billion, 2.3 billion euros) to prepare for leaving without an agreement.Politico reported that part of the money would be spent on a Europe-wide media blitz that included adverts in major continental newspapers aimed at convincing EU governments about the strength of Britain’s no-deal resolve.Some analysts questioned how much of the funding was new and whether it would actually be used in the 90 days remaining before Brexit.”We have to be prepared because we will be leaving on 31 October,” Javid said on Thursday.The main opposition Labour Party’s finance spokesman John McDonnell branded the funding an “appalling waste of taxpayers’ cash”.The Labour MP who heads parliament’s spending watchdog also pledged to investigate how the money was being spent.last_img

Virology Journal retracts paper on Jesus curing possible case of influenza

first_img Citation: Virology Journal retracts paper on Jesus curing possible case of influenza (2010, August 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-08-virology-journal-retracts-paper-jesus.html Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Robert F. Garry, publicly apologized for publishing the article, saying it “clearly does not provide the type of robust supporting data required for a case report and does not meet the high standards expected of a peer-reviewed scientific journal.” He also apologized for any “confusion or concern” the article may have created among readers.Garry said the paper, entitled “Influenza or not influenza: Analysis of a case of high fever that happened 2000 years ago in Biblical time,” was only intended to be an opinion piece and a “bit of relief from the ‘normal’ business of the journal,” but the speculations in the paper did not belong in a peer-reviewed journal, and its contents did not represent the views of BioMed Central journals.The retraction came after criticisms, including those made via blogs and a comment posted on the paper by Paul Gray of the Washington University School of Medicine, expressing the view that it was unclear how the paper met any of the normal standards of such a journal other than someone paid to have it published.The paper was a “case study” of a woman described in the gospels of Mark (1:29 to 33), Luke (4:38-39), and Matthew (8:14-15). The woman was said to have had a high fever and was “cured by our Lord Jesus Christ.” Among the reasons given for the conclusion the woman must have had influenza was that she was unlikely to have had a severe acute bacterial infection because such a disease would not be resolved instantaneously. The paper concluded that if their postulation is correct the case is one of the earliest descriptions of human influenza.One of the blogs that brought the paper to notice was This Scientific Life, by Bob O’Hara. O’Hara said the lead author of the paper, Kam L.E. Hon from the Department of Paediatrics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, had replied by email to his queries and confirmed he had agreed to the retraction and was “astonished” the article had produced such a negative response since it was only intended for thought provocation. He went on to apologize for the inconvenience caused to the Journal and anxiety caused to himself. He said he would never to write this kind of article again.
