A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But Klopp, who will speak to Lovren about the message aimed at his family, hopes to have both in the squad for a key game in Group E, provided they can come through training on Wednesday unscathed.”I am not 100 per cent sure. They are both much better but whether they will be ready, I don’t know at this moment,” Klopp told a news conference.”We have to see. We have a [training] session at 5pm and we will see who will be involved. I hope for both.”If they will not train, especially in Dejan’s case, that does not mean he cannot play. In Dejan’s case if he could train tonight [Tuesday] and tomorrow, that would be enough.“We have a few little things, Alberto [Moreno] had a cramp, Joe [Gomez] felt [something] a little bit. So we were really careful in the last few days.”If a player is playing, then he must be at 100 per cent. I will speak to the medical department. I don’t think about rotation, I think about a 100 per cent spot-on team.””I don’t think about rotation. I think about having a 100 per cent spot on team.”Watch live and free: https://t.co/kT7mkv3qO5 pic.twitter.com/mds3gD8X7J — Liverpool FC (@LFC) October 31, 2017 Klopp also confirmed Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana are making good progress in their recovery from injury, although he does not expect either to return this week.Mane has been out with a hamstring injury since the beginning of the month and England midfielder Lallana has yet to play this season after injuring his thigh in August.”It looks good. Sadio had this morning a clearing session before he returns to training,” he said. “Now he’s not in the squad so [Wednesday] is a down day, then on Thursday he should be in training.”Adam will be part of team training in the international break. Both of them are in a good way, but not good enough to involve them tomorrow or at West Ham.”Liverpool recorded an emphatic 7-0 win over Maribor in the reverse fixture and another win this week would put them in a strong position to qualify for the last 16.But Klopp insists he will not take anything for granted, despite the easy nature of their meeting in Slovenia.”I have had too many football games in my life to feel relaxed before a game like this. If we win it 1-0, I’m fine. We want three points, a clean sheet and a better position,” he added.

The recent perspective on the value of human data recently appeared in Cell Trends in Molecular Medicine.”Deep biomarkers of aging developed utilizing a variety of data types of aging are rapidly advancing the longevity biotechnology industry. Using biomarkers of aging to improve human health, prevent age-associated diseases and extend healthy life span is now facilitated by the fast-growing capacity of data acquisition, and recent advances in AI. They hold a great potential for changing not only aging research, but healthcare in general,” said Polina Mamoshina, Senior Scientist at Insilico Medicine.

(2019) Deep Aging Clocks: The Emergence of AI-Based Biomarkers of Aging and Longevity.Cell Press. doi.org/10.1016/j.tips.2019.05.004 Humans are very good at guessing each other’s age using images, videos, voice, and even smell. Deep neural networks can do it better and we can now interpret what factors are most important. Very often when someone looks older than their chronological age, they are sick. A trained doctor can guess the health status of a patient just by looking at him or her. At Insilico we developed a broad range of deep biomarkers of aging that can be used by the pharmaceutical and insurance companies, as well as by the longevity biotechnology community. In this paper we describe the recent progress in this emerging field and outline a range of non-obvious applications,”Alex Zhavoronkov, Ph.D, Founder and CEO of Insilico Medicine Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 4 2019There are two kinds of age: chronological age, w hich is the number of years one has lived, and biological age, which is influenced by our genes, lifestyle, behavior, the environment and other factors. Biological age is the superior measure of true age and is the most biologically relevant feature, as it closely correlates with mortality and health status. The search for reliable predictors of biological age has been ongoing for several decades, and until recently, largely without success.Since 2016 the use of deep learning techniques to find predictors of chronological and biological age has been gaining popularity in the aging research community. Advances in artificial intelligence, combined with the availability of large datasets, have led to a boom in the field, increasing the variety of biomarkers that could be considered candidates as potential age predictors. One promising development that considers multiple combinations of these different predictors could shed light on the aging process and provide further understanding of what contributes to healthy aging.In the paper titled “Deep Aging Clocks: The Emergence of AI-Based Biomarkers of Aging and Longevity” in Cell Trends in Pharmacological Sciences, Polina Mamoshina, Senior Scientist at Insilico Medicine, and Alex Zhavoronkov, the Founder of Insilico Medicine, summarise current findings on the main types of deep aging clocks and their broad range of applications in pharmaceutical industry.
US President Bill Clinton with Atal Bihari Vajpayee. To Clinton’s right are Chelsea, his daughter, and President KR Narayanan – THE HINDU ARCHIVES death COMMENT A towering leader, he did not hesitate to take decisions that went against the BJP’s stance As Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee guided India’s foreign relations through a volatile and uncomfortable period to a more comfortable environment. Vajpayee’s first major decision was to give directions for carrying out nuclear tests — ending India’s nuclear ambiguity was one of the important promises made in the BJP manifesto. It was a defining event for India’s foreign relations, but it plunged the newly elected Vajpayee government into a serious crisis. The nuclear tests evoked widespread condemnation from the US and other western countries as they imposed stringent economic sanctions against India. Tensions peaked with Pakistan as Islamabad conducted its own retaliatory nuclear tests, while China bristled at it being named as one of the main threats to India’s security in an explanatory letter to the US President. Isolated from international opinion for having wrecked the global non-proliferation regime, the Vajpayee government was forced to go into damage control.Damage controlNormalising ties with the US and setting them on a firm foundation within two years was the most significant achievement of the Vajpayee government. Under Vajpayee’s leadership, the duo of former National Security Adviser Brajesh Mishra and the then External Affairs Minister Jaswant Singh, together with intense diplomatic activity, reversed the chill in relations.Singh began a series of meetings with former US Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott that converted the isolation of the post-Pokhran period to a state where the two sides could discuss a comprehensive document on India-US relations. The document titled ‘A Vision for the 21st Century’ was signed during a visit by former US President Bill Clinton to Delhi in March 2000, the first by an American President in 22 years.Vajpayee was the towering leader in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and could take decisions that went against BJP’s traditional stance. He took the initiative with Pakistan when he travelled to Lahore on the first bus on the Delhi-Lahore route and signed the Lahore Declaration with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, in February 1999. But the Lahore spirit did not last for long as Pakistani troops were found to have intruded in Kargil area. Operation Vijay forced Pakistan to withdraw its troops.Vajpayee then made another effort with Pakistan in July 2001 when Gen Pervez Musharraf was invited to India for a summit. But the Agra summit was unproductive. But by 2003, the two sides had agreed to a ceasefire along the Line of Control, and at the SAARC summit in Islamabad in January 2004, Vajpayee and Musharraf laid the ground for starting a composite dialogue process.Through the period of his prime ministership, India’s relations with three countries most affected by the Pokhran tests — the US, Pakistan and China — were stabilised. The seeds of a robust relationship with the US were put in place, while the strains in the ties with Pakistan and China were reduced.Beijing rolled out the red carpet for Vajpayee’s visit in 2003; there had been an unpleasant surprise during his last visit to China in 1979 as Foreign Minister when Beijing had invaded Vietnam. But in 2003, India and China adopted a joint declaration that set out the principles for friendly bilateral relations and comprehensive cooperation between them.Vajpayee added depth to the Look East policy, visiting several South-East Asian countries and focussing on closer trade relations with ASEAN.Vajpayee had a special affinity towards the Indian diaspora and met members of the Indian community with great warmth, on his foreign tours. He constituted the High Level Committee for the Indian Diaspora and accepted many of the Committee’s recommendations, including setting up a separate ministry for overseas Indian affairs. However, the experiment of appointing an Ambassador-at-Large for the diaspora was unsuccessful as it created discord among the Indian community in the US. The writer is a senior journalist.
