One of those tests must still be administered within three days of competition, the conference stated Friday in a release. Cross country athletes will still be tested every other week.The ACC also added protocols for football. Players should be tested a day prior to competition and then within 48 hours of the game’s conclusion. A third party will conduct the test prior to gameday, and testing applies to all “team members,” which includes players, coaches and administrative staff, the release states.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse players have sat out four training camp practices since Aug. 6, in part calling for increased COVID-19 testing. SU agreed to test its football players three times per week once the season began, but until Aug. 28, the ACC had not made a conference-wide ruling regarding more frequent COVID-19 testing.Every athlete that tests positive will “undergo a cardiac evaluation,” before they gradually return to play, the ACC stated.The conference also made changes to football’s sideline protocols in order to eliminate all “non-essential personnel” from team areas.last_img read more

first_imgNASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is set to ring in 2019 by photographing the most distant world ever explored. It’s a historic mission, and it’s getting a theme song worthy of its status. Legendary Queen guitarist Brian May, a space enthusiast who holds a doctorate in astrophysics, has written his first solo song in two decades for the flyby of 2014 MU69. The mysterious space rock, which is nicknamed Ultima Thule, orbits the sun 1 billion miles (1.6 billion kilometers) beyond Pluto in the Kuiper Belt. Aptly, the tune is called “New Horizons (Ultima Thule mix)” and it can be streamed via Queen’s YouTube below: Share your voice “This mission is about human curiosity,” May said in an Instagram post Monday. “The need of mankind to explore and see what makes the universe tick. My song is an anthem to human endeavor.” May will be on hand at NASA control headquarters in Maryland from New Year’s Eve into New Year’s Day to witness the much-anticipated flyby and hear his song played in public for the first time. May got his doctorate from Imperial College London, where he wrote his thesis on Zodiacal light, an eerie glow that looks like a hazy pyramid and appears in the western sky after sunset and in the eastern sky before sunrise.May has collaborated with NASA before and even started an asteroid awareness campaign. A quick scan of his social media accounts shows he loves space just as much as he loves screaming electric guitar.    New Horizons is scheduled to cap an exciting year in space by coming within 2,200 miles (3,540 kilometers) of Ultima Thule in the early hours of 2019. That’s about three times closer than New Horizons came to Pluto when it snapped some epic photos of the planet a few years back.  0 5:33 Now playing: Watch this: Mars, space soldiers and NASA’s big party: The biggest…center_img Post a comment With the New Year’s flyby, NASA hopes the spacecraft will deliver vital data on the sort of object that may represent the building blocks of Pluto and other distant icy worlds like it. “Ultima Thule is incredibly scientifically valuable for understanding the origin of our solar system and its planets,” Alan Stern, principal investigator of New Horizons said in statement. “It’s ancient and pristine, and not like anything we’ve seen before.” If you’re a space enthusiast, the flyby will likely rock you as much as May’s new anthem.

first_imgAn 85-year-old ex-Gurkha who was attempting to reclaim his title as the world’s oldest person to summit Mount Everest died at base camp on Saturday.Min Bahadur Sherchan was on a bid to reclaim a title that he lost to Japanese mountaineer Yuichiro Miura in 2013.“He passed away at the base camp today at 5:14pm,” Gyanendra Shrestha, an official with the tourism ministry who is at the 5,380 metres (17,600 feet) camp, told AFP.The former soldier became the world’s oldest climber to summit Everest in 2008 when he was 76, but he lost the record five years later when Miura summited the 8,848-metre peak at the age of 80.Speaking to AFP this year before returning to Everest, the slightly hard of hearing grandfather said he just wanted to prove to himself that he could still make it to the top of the world.“My aim is not to break anybody’s record, this is not a personal competition between individuals. I wish to break my own record,” Sherchan told AFP from Kathmandu in February.Sherchan’s death is the second fatality of the spring climbing season on Everest, which runs from late April to the end of May.Experienced Swiss climber Ueli Steck died last month when he fell from a steep ridge during an acclimatisation climb.Nearly 750 people will be attempting to reach the summit of the world’s highest peak during the narrow window of good weather that usually falls in mid-May.Hundreds of climbers have been on Everest for weeks to acclimatise before making a bid for the top.This year is particularly crowded as it is the last chance for climbers who were forced off the mountain by the devastating 2015 earthquake to use their extended permits. This has rasied concerns about dangerous traffic jams on the mountain.Mountaineering is a major revenue earner for impoverished Nepal, home to eight of the world’s 14 peaks over 8,000 metres.last_img read more
