ABCNews.com(NEW YORK) — Daniel Liu has aspirations to one day go to Harvard or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.Until then, he will spend lots of time in a University of Toledo laboratory — where he has studied since he was 11. He is now 12.An assistant professor of chemistry at the university who is part of Daniel’s research team said he was skeptical at first that an 11-year-old would even be allowed into the lab. But Daniel was allowed in and since then, the professor has fully supported his young colleague. “I’ll be honest, sometimes it’s a little intimidating for me,” Dr. Michael Young told ABC affiliate WTVG in Toledo. “I think to myself, ‘What would I be doing today if I had been that good at age 11?’”“I suspect it won’t be long before he’s telling me things I don’t know,” Young said.“He’s a genius,” another member of Daniel’s team, Dr. Mohit Kapoor, a postdoctoral researcher, said of the boy to WTVG. “He knows most of the things going on around this lab.”Daniel is a force to be reckoned with. On the first exam a typical lab participant takes, the average score is a 50. Daniel got a 99. The three-person research team that includes Daniel is trying to create a cheaper, faster and more environmentally friendly way to make pesticides and pharmaceutical drugs.One of Daniel’s career goals is to benefit society.“I’d like to develop drugs to help people who have illnesses or medical conditions,” he said.For now, in addition to his lab research he is in school.“I’m taking all my classes here at UT, but I am also enrolled at high school, so I am getting credit there for these classes,” he said.Besides his potential game-changing research, he’s also going to cross a major milestone on June 3: becoming a teenager when he turns 13.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Shay Given and his Republic of Ireland team-mates have one step on the plane to Poland and the Ukraine for next year’s European Championships after a convincing 4-0 win over Estonia tonight.Given was by and large a bystander as Ireland carved out a hard-fought victory over Estonia.Estonia did well at times but goals from Keith Andrews, Jonathon Walters and two from captain Robbie Keane put Ireland in a commanding position for the return leg in Dublin next Tuesday. Estonia were not helped by two sendings-off.Given was delighted by how his team played.“We worked hard. Although we got the goal early on they out us under a bit of pressure.“When they lost a man we began to put them under a little bit of pressure but they were still dangerous. “When we got the second goal their heads went down a little and we pushed on. We have put ourselves in a great position to get into the finals,” he said.The finals will be some reward after Given and his team were cheated by France in Paris last year in the World Cup qualifiers.GIVEN’S DELIGHT AS IRELAND SET FOR EURO CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS was last modified: November 13th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Republic of Irelandseamus colemanShay Given
QPR are behind at Ewood Park thanks to a well-taken strike from Rudy Gestede.The former Cardiff forward, who has troubled the Rangers defence with his presence up front, drove a low shot from just outside the box beyond Rob Green.Blackburn, unbeaten in six matches, came close to scoring a second when Gestede’s flick on dropped for Jordan Rhodes but he was denied by Green.Ravel Morrison has been QPR’s brightest spark in attack and he forced former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson into a smart stop with a first-time volley.Aside from that effort, Blackburn have restricted Rangers to shots from distance, with Morrison, Yossi Benayoun and Benoit Assou-Ekotto all blazing over.At the other end, Blackburn’s Grant Hanley nodded wide when well placed.Luke Young is a surprise inclusion in the QPR starting line-up, the 34-year-old making his first appearance in the side since March 2012.QPR (4-4-1-1): Green; Simpson, Dunne, Young, Assou-Ekotto; Hoilett, Henry, Benayoun, Carroll; Morrison; Keane.Subs: Murphy, Austin, Yun, Zamora, O’Neil, Donaldson, Maiga.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

The Canadian PressAn Ontario Court judge has imposed $50,000 in fines on Bruce Carson, a former Stephen Harper confidant convicted of illegal lobbying.Although Carson‘s lawyer, Patrick McCann, argued that his client was on the verge of bankruptcy and unable to pay, Ontario Court Justice Catherine Kehoe said Carson remains employable, calling the fine a necessary deterrent to others.The Crown had asked for a $50,000 penalty.Carson was found guilty in September on three counts under the Lobbying Act over work he did on a national energy strategy while director of the Canada School of Energy and Environment and later as the vice-chair of the Energy Policy Institute of Canada.The judge determined he had contact with ministers and deputy ministers at Industry Canada and Environment Canada, as well as the Prime Minister’s Office and the Privy Council Office, while he was employed at the institute even though he was under a five-year prohibition from lobbying public office holders because he had worked in the PMO until February 2009.The court was told that, between 2009 and 2011, Carson was paid about $600,000 for his lobbying work.There have only been two previous convictions under the Lobbying Act, which resulted in fines of $7,500 and $20,000, Crown prosecutor Robert Zsigo told the judge.In her sentencing ruling, Kehoe said the gravity of the offence could not be more serious and that Carson had decided to simply ignore the prohibitions against lobbying.“It is necessary to impose a significant fine to deter Mr. Carson and others who would engage in lobbying and ignore the law, which goes to the heart of the integrity of government and public trust of government,” she wrote.She said a lesser fine would not send the right message.“I reject that a nominal fine would address the principles of sentencing in this case, as it would not address the seriousness of the offences, their ongoing nature, the impact on the integrity of government and the need to denounce such conduct.”Last year, Carson was found not guilty of influence-peddling in connection with attempts to persuade government officials to buy water filtration systems for First Nation communities, which were being sold by a company that employed Carson’s former escort girlfriend.While the judge in that case found Carson had attempted to influence high-ranking government officials, he was acquitted because the officials had no power to decide whether to buy the water [email protected]
But this year’s Week 1 results aren’t just close by Week 1 standards. The Broncos (over the Panthers), Bengals (Jets), Raiders (Saints) and Giants (Cowboys) all won by just 1 point: That’s the first time that four games in one week have been decided by a single point in 34 years.Since 1993, only one week has been as close on average as the 5.1-point margin tallied so far on opening weekend — Week 5 of the 2001 season. Since 1993, the standard deviation of from the previously mentioned 11.6-point average margin of victory was 2.3 points. That makes this season’s Week 1 a true outlier: At 5.1 points (pending tonight’s games), it is 2.3 standard deviations from average. The graph below shows the average margin in each week of the regular season since 1993: Of course, if you insist on having something to overreact to, your best bet for a hot take this morning is to look at the performance of the two NFC heavyweights, Seattle and Arizona. The Seahawks were favored by 10 points but needed a late touchdown to beat the Dolphins, 12-10. And Arizona, favored by 9 points against a New England squad without both Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, missed a last-minute field goal and fell, 23-21. But given that Seattle and Arizona both rank in the top five in wins over the last three years, both teams have earned the benefit of the doubt after one mediocre performance. When a game takes an unexpected turn in Week 13 of an NFL season, it can easily be recognized for what it is: an outlier. But when a favorite is upset in Week 1, it’s harder to say whether the game is an aberration or a sign of how the rest of the season will unfold. Observers have such a tendency to overreact to the results in Week 1 that Football Outsiders has coined it National Jump to Conclusions Week.But this year, in a special Week 1 twist, there’s very little to overreact to, at least at a macro level. As usual, some games unfolded in fascinating ways — the Chargers blew a huge lead to the Chiefs, the Lions blew a huge lead but then still beat the Colts, the Raiders won on a 2-point conversion — but Week 1 should generate surprisingly few hot takes. In fact, the most notable result in Week 1 was how close the games were.Philadelphia beat Cleveland, arguably the worst team in the NFL, by 19 points. That otherwise tame result is notable for one reason: Of the 14 games played so far, this was the only game decided by double digits. That’s already tied for the single-week record, with two games (Washington/Pittsburgh and San Francisco/Los Angeles) still to play this evening.The NFL introduced free agency for the 1993 season, another in a long line of efforts by the league to create parity. From 1993 to 2015, the average margin of victory in Week 1 was 11.6 points; this year, pending the results of tonight’s games, the average margin of victory is a microscopic 5.1 points.

Gavin Newsom’s first budget proposal today, primarily for its dedicated support for expanding housing, affordable education and social services.Newsom released his proposed $209 billion budget for fiscal year 2019-2020, a four percent increase over former Gov. Jerry Brown’s fiscal year 2018-2019 budget, his last in office.The budget includes a $144 billion general fund and a projected $21.4 billion surplus, the largest since at least 2000.On a more granular level, Newsom’s budget includes $1.3 billion in one-time funding for housing development projects, $40 million in funding to cover two full years of tuition for first-time community college students enrolled full-time and doubling the number of state residents who have access to the state’s earned-income tax credit.San Diego’s representatives in the state legislature lauded Newsom’s budget for its ambitious funding propositions. State Sens. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, and Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, called the proposal “outstanding” in a joint statement. Atkins and Mitchell sit on the Senate’s Rules and Budget and Fiscal Review committees, respectively.“We are pleased that the governor shares our commitment to investing in early childhood and higher education, affordable housing, alleviating poverty and homelessness, expanding access to health care, paid family leave and the Earned Income Tax Credit, and overhauling California’s emergency preparedness,” Atkins and Mitchell said in the statement.Newsom also earmarked funding to assist undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers who have recently entered the U.S. as well as the humanitarian organizations that support them.In a visit to the Otay Mesa Immigration Detention Center Nov. 29, Newsom said the state needed to exert more effort to support recently arrived immigrants, who often lack proper support networks and can end up homeless in areas like San Diego and Imperial counties.“My constituents have seen an influx of migrants being dropped on San Diego streets by federal officials without the support system to help them,” said Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego. “I want to particularly thank Gov. Newsom for including $25 million (including an immediate $5 million) to assist our community-based organizations in providing services to address this crisis.”The budget includes an attempt to take an ax to the state’s unfunded pension liabilities as well, allocating $13.6 billion to eliminate budgetary debt, build reserves and pay down pensions. According to Newsom’s office, such spending supports the state’s financial foundation and protects against possible economic strife.“To make the California Dream available to all, our state must be fiscally sound,” Newsom said. “This budget lays a strong financial foundation for our state by eliminating debts, expanding the rainy-day fund and paying down our unfunded liabilities.”Newsom’s office and state legislators will negotiate the budget’s details through June, when the final budget must be submitted. California’s 2019-2020 fiscal year begins July 1, 2019. Sasha Foo
