Rangers clinch first Premiership win of season against Dundee

first_imgHaving sold star man Greg Stewart to Birmingham on Friday, Dark Blues boss Paul Hartley went with the same side that defeated Ross County 3-1 last weekend.Gers, meanwhile, made six changes to the line-up which romped past Peterhead in the Betfred Cup on Tuesday, with Miller given the nod ahead of Joe Dodoo to deputise for injured frontman Martyn Waghorn.The game took time to warm up but once it did, it was compelling stuff.When the sides met in the William Hill Scottish Cup last season, it took Forrester just 14 seconds to fire his side ahead. This time, it took 14 minutes. Dundee failed to cope with a Rangers raid down the right and Barrie McKay was allowed to knock a loose ball into the box. Forrester still had it all to do as Cammy Kerr put him under pressure but he did well to hook an impressive finish into the top corner.The hosts tried to counter with a Danny Williams effort which Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham gathered comfortably.But Gers were quickly back on the front foot. Andy Halliday sent Wallace down the right but Forrester fired over from the skipper’s cut-back before the former Doncaster playmaker headed over from a James Tavernier cross.Their second goal after 39 minutes, however, was clinically executed as McKay clipped a perfect ball forward for Wallace to sprint on to. The captain pulled the ball back again, with the on-rushing Miller rifling the ball into the roof of the net.The 36-year-old should have killed the Taysiders’ challenge off moments later but allowed Scott Bain to pinch the ball as he tried to round the keeper.And instead of going in at the break 3-0 up, suddenly their lead was cut to one when Barton allowed O’Hara to bullet home a header from Williams’ corner in the final minute of the half.The tempo dropped a couple of notches as the second period got under way but Rangers relaxed too much on 65 minutes when Williams was allowed to run in behind. Foderingham, though, came to the rescue.The keeper was almost at fault, however, when he fired a clearance straight at Nick Ross, but was relieved when Dundee substitute Yordi Teijsse could not provide a finish.Forrester, booked just two minutes after the break, was then replaced by Michael O’Halloran to ensure there was no chance he might be sent off after a couple more risky challenges.McKay should have made added a gloss to the scoreline when another of Gers’ replacements, Dodoo, sent him galloping through on goal, but he nudged his stoppage-time effort wide. Rangers gave a signal of their intentions as they battled to their first Scottish Premiership victory of the new season with a 2-1 win at Dundee.First-half strikes from Harry Forrester and Kenny Miller put the Light Blues two up as Mark Warburton’s side produced some tidy attacks.However, Mark O’Hara – relishing a new advanced midfield role – gave Dundee hope just before the interval when he lost Joey Barton at a corner to score.Dundee made Gers graft in the second half but the newly-promoted Ibrox side held on to collect their first top-flight success since beating St Johnstone 4-0 back in May, 2012.last_img read more

How Data and Analytics Translate to Personal Care

first_imgPatient engagement and analytics were trending topics at HIMSS15. I now wonder how the essence of those conversations will change going forward.In this video, I share insight into how the discussions around analytics and patient engagement need to shift toward improving the quality of care and reducing costs. I also look at how the growing volume of personal health data coming from wearables and genomic research will help drive truly customized care into becoming a reality.Watch the short video and let us know what questions you have about the future of analytics and customized care, and where you think they’re headed.last_img read more

Earth-like planet may be not so hospitable after all, thanks to blasts of radiation

first_imgEarlier this year, astronomers reported discovering a handful of Earth-like planets orbiting distant stars. One of them, a presumably rocky orb dubbed Kepler-438b, orbits a red dwarf star and may be just a bit warmer than Earth, those researchers suggested. Now, another team finds that the planet may be hostile to life because it has no atmosphere, thanks to supersized solar flares that blast the planet every few hundred days, the researchers report online before print in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The flares are about 10 times as powerful as those ever recorded on our sun, the team estimates. And because Kepler-438b orbits just 25 million kilometers from its star (about half the distance of Mercury’s closest approach to our sun), that’s a recipe for disaster for life as we know it, the researchers say: With little or no atmosphere, the planet’s surface would be exposed to harsh x-ray and ultraviolet radiation, not to mention floods of charged particles like those in our solar wind.last_img read more
