It is currently Ramadan, a time when Muslims are expected to forgo drinks or food during the daytime. A lot of Muslim soccer players are affected by Ramadan, and the approach to handling Ramadan and its requirement for fasting varies from player to player.

Sarah Rahal The Detroit News Published 10:39 p.m. UTC May 30, 2018 Dearborn — Fasting during Ramadan can be difficult, with long, hot days lasting from 4 a.m. until the sun sets. The last place anyone wants to be is in the kitchen while you try to keep your mind off of food, but someone has to prepare the Iftar feast for the family. Millions of Muslims around the world fast during the month of Ramadan, when eating anything or drinking even a sip of water is prohibited while the sun is out.

A nerve agent was likely used to poison a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in England, new reports suggest. The former spy, Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter, Yulia, 33, were found slumped on a park bench in Salisbury, England, on Sunday (March 4). Both Skripals allegedly looked pale and stiff; vomit was pouring from Sergei's mouth while his daughter sat frothing at the mouth with wide-open eyes, according to U.S. News and World Report. According to investigators, the condition in which the Skripals were found indicates they were poisoned by a nerve agent — the most toxic and fast-acting chemical warfare agents in the world, Live Science previously reported. But what are nerve agents, and what do they do to humans?

Last week, astronomers from Arizona State University and MIT announced that they had detected light from the Universe's "Cosmic Dawn." The primordial signal, dated to a mere 180 million years after the Big Bang, emanated from hydrogen that had absorbed energy from the very first stars ever to shine. Paired with this grand discovery was an exhilarating surprise: the gas that comprised the early universe was colder than expected, hinting at the presence of cold dark matter! Now, this is an incredible find, so one might think the scientists would race to blare it from the nearest media platforms – newspaper, television, Twitter, etc. – the second they discovered it. But no. Perhaps the coolest fact about this finding is that after detecting the remarkable signal, the discoverers' first inclination was to disprove it. As Elizabeth Gibney reported for Nature News: The finding was so stark that the researchers spent two years checking that it didn’t come from an … [Read more...] about What the Media Can Learn from Physics and Cosmology

It means keeping existing systems up and running while juggling multiple projects at the same time. While some of your tasks are extremely important, there are others that might be more mundane and make you feel like you’re wasting your time.
