FDA Extends Collaboration on Living Heart Proje… Health services around the globe still struggle with mental health disorders, relying on a patient to provide documentation of mood changes in a journal or be open with a doctor or psychiatrist.Both solutions are not seeing excellent results, which is why U.K. based Cambridge Cognition and Ctrl Group have announced Cognitive Kit, a software platform that lets patient express their mood and improve memory, attention, and reaction on a wearable.See Also: Is Apple launching a fitness tracker alongside Watch 2?The platform is built into the Apple Watch and Microsoft Band 2, which both feature heart-rate sensors. Other wearable devices will receive support in the future.Mental health via “mood faces”For now, patients are able to select six different mood faces and send them to a doctor or psychiatrist. Patients will also be able to play a variety of games throughout the day, which may show patterns in mood and memory or reaction deficiency.Cognitive Kit, similar to Apple’s ResearchKit, will be open source. That means scientists and research will be able to dig into the data, find patterns, and hopefully improve mental health treatment.In a two week trial, Cambridge Cognitive said over 30 million data points were recorded on wearables. If the kit was provided to every mental health patient that approves, we could see hundreds of millions more data points.Cambridge Cognitive is looking to partner with healthcare and pharmaceutical providers to launch the Cognitive Kit. Alzheimer’s is one of the disorders it wants to tackle first, after presenting the platform to the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference.

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Coleman says Sheffield Utd win can restore Everton confidenceby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveSeamus Coleman believes that Sheffield United is the best chance for Everton to get their season back on track.The Blues face off against the newly promoted side off the back of a disappointing loss to Bournemouth.The consistency necessary to grab a top four or top six finish is still eluding Everton.But Coleman thinks they can start with a win against Sheffield and go from there.”We have to make sure we retain our confidence from our home form and try to make amends [following Bournemouth] against Sheffield United and go on from there,” Coleman told evertontv.”When you put on the Everton shirt – whether you are old or young – you have to take responsibility, to be brave and look for the ball at all times and help your teammates.”Not many of us could hold our heads high coming off the pitch [on Sunday] and that’s the truth.”Our home form is good but away from home at the minute it is disappointing and something we need to put right very fast if we want to be better this season.”We have to go into the Sheffield United game… and hopefully get three points and move forward and try to put it right.”

Now there’s name I haven’t heard in a few days.Tiger Woods, golfer, competed in the Hero World Challenge last week mounting another return to professional golf. Despite being the 1,199th ranked golfer in the world, Tiger has been claiming headlines despite not winning a tournament since 2013. Indeed, he gets more ink than all the people who have at times held the No. 1 world ranking since 2014. Tiger Woods has been the most written about player in golf for 24 of the past 47 months. On one hand, that’s nuts, on the other hand, the whole objective of golf is to play the least amount of golf, right, so from that point of view the golfer not playing all that much golf may very well be the best, right? Right? [FiveThirtyEight]Ohio sports receives newest chip for amply chipped shoulderThe College Football Playoff selection committee was presented with a difficult decision on whether to award Big Ten champion Ohio State with the fourth playoff berth or whether to give America another Alabama-Clemson game. Going into the day, we estimated there was a 40 percent change Ohio State would get the ticket, 28 percent chance it’d go to Alabama, and a 20 percent chance it’d go to USC. Only one other time in playoff history did a team that wasn’t a conference champion get into the playoff Clemson will face Alabama and Oklahoma will play Georgia in the first games of the playoff.

That’s the lowest since 1986. As a result, Russia has a 74 percent chance of advancing out of the group stage.

[FiveThirtyEight]Leaks from Slack: Sunday, noonishneil:Bama!andrea:What do we think of this? I was biased in favor of Ohio despite my Michigan background but thought they’d choose AlabamaThat said all the stuff about Alabama’s consistency was surprising to me because good teams playing less good teams are going to consistently look better than good teams playing good teamsDoes that make sense?neil:Yeah, definitely. Although to Bama’s credit, they played a number of teams roughly as good as Iowa (Miss State, LSU, etc) and handled them instead of losing by 31. (Then again, they also didn’t have any signature wins like OSU had over Penn St. and Wisc…)In that sense, the committee probably did hold Ohio State’s low point against them, and downplayed their high pointsPredictions NFL See more college football predictions

OSU won, 3-0.Credit: Jonathan McAllister / Lantern photographerWill the third time actually be the charm for the Ohio State men’s volleyball team?The Buckeyes are preparing to redeem themselves in what be their third match against Penn State in 2014, after falling to the Nittany Lions in previous matches 3-0 and 3-1.“The past two matches we played them this season we lost, one in Hawaii and one at their place,” redshirt-freshman middle blocker Driss Guessous said. “The last match was very close and could have gone either way. Speaking for me personally, I have been looking forward to getting another shot at them since that last match.”OSU played the Nittany Lions Jan. 11 in Hawaii and Feb. 5 at State College.Coach Pete Hanson said he hopes the team has learned from its previous mistakes made against Penn State, and will improve on them in Friday’s match.“We had a chance to win some of those games and perhaps win the match. We just didn’t make enough of the right types of plays at the end of the games, and again those are lessons that these young guys just have to keep going through and learn over time, and hopefully we have learned some of them and are going to be better,” Hanson said. “It will be a competitive match.”Redshirt-junior setter Peter Heinen said the Buckeyes have a solid understanding of how the Nittany Lions play.“We have seen this team play many times the past couple of years and know their tendencies very well,” Heinen said. “We just need to be able to execute our scouting report and play hard with a lot of energy.”Heinen said the Nittany Lions’ style of play is comparable to OSU’s.“We are both hard-hitting teams,” Heinen said. “So it will be an exciting match to watch as both teams work to outhit each other.”The coaches and players on each team know each other well, which leads to an intense rivalry, Hanson said. Penn State assistant coach Colin McMillan is a former Buckeye player who was coached by Hanson.The players on both teams also have had history competing with or against each other since their early volleyball careers, which makes this rivalry even stronger, Guessous said.“They (Penn State) are able to recruit great players and a lot of guys that we have played with or against in high school,” Guessous said. “That also contributes to the heightened atmosphere whenever we play those guys, because for a lot of us, it’s personal.”The Buckeyes are preparing for another tough match this week, after losing to No. 15 IPFW 3-2 Wednesday. However, OSU will not have a problem playing with high energy and confidence Friday despite the loss, Guessous said.“The match is going to be a grind. It is going to come down to which team has more desire, hustle, and a little bit of luck. This is one of those matches where it is easier to get fired up to play and I think that will be reflected through the effort we show in our plays,” Guessous said.The match is scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m. at St. John Arena.
Thad Matta (center) instructs his team during a timeout of a game against North Dakota State Dec. 14 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 79-62.Credit: Lantern file photoThad Matta has had rosters led by standout freshmen and teams led by hardened veterans. This season, he’ll have a mix of both.The Ohio State men’s basketball coach is entering his 11th season at the helm in Columbus as the team boasts a roster of four true freshmen, one redshirt-freshman and six seniors.Matta sat down with The Lantern on Wednesday and discussed the task of melding together a team with a strong freshman class and experienced veterans on the same roster.‘Still early to tell’ who leaders will beA year ago, Matta knew exactly who the leaders of his team would be. Then-senior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. had been key contributors and leaders on the team for multiple seasons and were handpicked go-to guys off the court.This season, the Buckeyes’ roster still boasts seniors who have been contributors — guard Shannon Scott and forward Sam Thompson, for example — but Matta said it’s still too early to say exactly who will step into leadership roles this season.“Just in terms of how the season works and once you get into practice and you hit the tough days, you’re going through a stretch where it’s the fourth practice in four days, you’ve been going hard, at what point, what guy steps forward and says ‘Hey, this is what we’ve got to do, this is how we’ve got to do it’?” Matta said.But the former Xavier University coach said he still has an idea of who exactly could step up this season.“With that said, I think that Shannon and Sam have been guys that have played huge roles in this program,” Matta said. “I would expect all of our seniors to be — in terms of leadership — supplying some (leadership), but obviously we have to grow that as the season continues.”Outside of Scott and Thompson, the other four seniors on the OSU roster include two centers, a transfer playing his first and only season for the Buckeyes and a walk on who Matta said “may come back another year.”Forward Anthony Lee transferred to OSU from Temple during the offseason, but will be eligible to play right away because he has already graduated college. Fellow forward Jake Lorbach is a walk on who has never made an impact for the Buckeyes, and would not be expected to step into a leadership role.The two centers — Amir Williams and Trey McDonald — are set to battle it out for playing time, but Matta said both could still find their ways into leadership roles on the team.“Trey’s personality lends him to be a leader,” Matta said. “I think from Amir, I’m hoping he’ll come to the forefront in terms of saying, ‘Hey, I’ve got to do my part, I’ve got to help these guys and get them to understand how we do things here.’”Thompson and Scott have the most experience for the Buckeyes, having played in 111 and 108 games, respectively, while Williams has donned a scarlet and gray uniform 101 times.Freshmen “have the potential”Even with veterans leading the way on the floor, Matta said his freshmen have a chance to step into roles as leaders.He added most freshmen “lead by example,” and singled out guard D’Angelo Russell and forward Jae’Sean Tate as players setting the standard within their class.“(Russell) likes to take command of his group and get guys where they need to be,” he said. “I think that’s just his winning mentality. I think a guy like Jae’Sean Tate is a guy who’s going to play so hard, he has so much energy, that you hope that permeates throughout the team in terms of, ‘Boy, he’s so productive.’”Apart from Russell and Tate, the freshman class consists of center David Bell, forward Keita Bates-Diop and redshirt-freshman guard Kam Williams.Matta singled out Bates-Diop as a player he hopes could step into a leadership role, but has room for improvement.“He understands leadership. We just need him to be a little more vocal at times,” Matta said.While he said he has some ideas of their leadership qualities, Matta said he goes into seasons without too many specific expectations for his freshman classes. He said he wants to take time to watch this year’s class before making judgments about their on-the-court status.“I go into it with a very broad vision of what I think they’re going to be,” he said. “I want to see their play over the course of time.”Matta said one of the keys will be to watch how the young players respond to both success and adversity in practice.“A guy has a great practice, does he back it up with a really good practice?” he said. “Guy has a bad practice, does he have the toughness to bounce back and have a really good outing the next day?”Even though he’s still in the evaluation process, Matta said each new player on the team has done something to make him take notice.“All the new guys have done things that have caught my eye in terms of what they’re going to be able to bring to this basketball team,” he said. “Now getting it consistently is going to be the key for any freshman.”The Buckeyes’ season is set to begin Nov. 14 when they host the University of Massachusetts-Lowell at the Schottenstein Center. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Former Juventus captain Gianluca Vialli rates his old side’s chances of Champions League glory strongly for this seasonThe 54-year-old captained Juventus to their last European crown in 1996 with a penalty shoot-out win over Ajax in Rome.Since then, Juventus have suffered defeat at the final stage of the Champions League five times.But Vialli believes that this season will be another story due to the star quality in the squad.“Juve are the strongest team in Europe,” Vialli told Gazzetta dello Sport. “I’m not just talking about the starters but also the squad depth.“Sometimes you look at the players they have on the bench and you’re amazed.Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“The club did so well, they’ve added Cristiano Ronaldo to a structure that allowed them to win in Italy and to reach two Champions League finals in four years.“Let’s just say the team 22 years ago had the merit of winning the Champions League, but in everything else this team has superior quality, simply because they can field one of the best players in the world.“Allegri has two teams at his disposal. [Vialli’s boss Marcello] Lippi had a granite block, we were solid, tactically prepared and at the peak of our powers.“But Marcello didn’t have CR7. Now that [Zinedine] Zidane isn’t working, Allegri is better than anyone. The results say that.”Juventus top Group H with nine points from three games and will next host Manchester United in the competition next Wednesday.
