We have to get the three points so that we can end the year well and enter the break with peace of mind,” he told reporters according to the team’s official website.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Sampdoria have only lost once in their last seven games, and have taken a positive result in their last three away trips.”“It is not a game to be underestimated, we will need the support of the fans. Quagliarella is an amazing player and always scores extraordinary goals,” he explained.“Benatia, Matuidi and Bernardeschi are available. Szczesny, Ronaldo, Rugani, and Chiellini will all start, whilst Bonucci will rest.”“In attack, both Dybala and Mandzukic are going good, but I have a doubt on the left whether to put in Alex Sandro or Spinazzola from the first minute, whilst the latter could still play a part in the game regardless,” he concluded.last_img read more

Grass pollen can help predict asthma hay fever

first_imgThe presence of different strains of grass pollen in the atmosphere can help predict when hay fever and asthma could strike, researchers have found. A team led by the University of Queensland (UQ) researchers, tracked grass pollen for seasonal variations and found it was released into the atmosphere later in areas further from the equator. “Using this method, we may be able to better predict when allergenic pollen is present and allow people affected by asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and rhinitis to more effectively manage their condition,” said Nicholas Osborne, Associate Professor at UQ’s School of Public Health.

He said the research would help allergy sufferers prepare for the hay fever season and doctors to prescribe more personalised treatments. “People who fail to manage their asthma are at greater risk of asthma attack and being forced to visit hospital emergency departments,” Osborne said. “Having a more accurate forecast of when a patient is at risk will allow people to better manage their disease.” Scientists hope to expand on research to create a unique profile of each grass pollen species to determine the most harmful strains. “Eventually – possibly within three to four years – we hope this will allow us to produce a better forecast of when and where exposure to pollen occurs,” Osborne further added.last_img read more
