    PREGNANT women could one day check up on their babies from home with the help of a smartphone.  This comes as engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have designed a wearable stamp-sized ultrasound device. 2Patients may be able to take the devices home or even buy them from a pharmacy. 2"With a few patches on your body (pictured above), you could see your internal organs." The new system, which sticks to the body like a plaster, can capture live continuous images that show what is happening deep inside the womb. The researchers are working towards making the novel device wireless, meaning patients could receive images of their ultrasound directly to their phones in real-time. This would also mean patients can take the devices home or even buy them from a pharmacy. Chonghe Wang, an MIT graduate student who worked on the device said: “Wearable ultrasound imaging tools would have huge potential in the future of clinical diagnosis.

    MIKE TYSON said Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk 'had a bad day' and asked: 'Do you really think they could have beat me in my prime?' Usyk put on what most considered a 12 round masterclass at Tottenham's stadium to dethrone British superstar AJ. 8Mike Tyson said Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk 'had a bad day' 8Mike Tyson pictured during his prime in 1986Credit: Getty - Contributor But it appears Tyson, the youngest heavyweight champion of all time aged 20, was not impressed with either the former or new unified king. He tweeted: "After watching the Joshua vs Usyk fight, maybe they had a bad day that night. "From that performance do you really think they could have beat me in my prime?" Tyson, now 55, during his most destructive years was one of the most feared fighters of all time, making him ultra popular still to this day. And his army of fans backed a prime Iron Mike to beat both Joshua, 31, or Usyk, 34, giving the current rivals no hope. Most...
    Haitian migrants deported after arriving at a temporary migrant camp under an international bridge in Del Rio, Texas, were upset and angry they lost their chance at the American dream, Reuters reported on Tuesday. Over 300 Haitian migrants were deported on Sunday back to their home country on three flights, according to Reuters. Some 12,000 migrants established a temporary camp under a bridge after crossing the Rio Grande River from Ciudad Acuña, Mexico. “I left Haiti to go find a better future,” a woman named Stephanie told Reuters. She said immigration officials transported her from the temporary camp under the bridge to a detention center before putting her on a return flight to Haiti. “If jobs could be created, we would never have exposed ourselves to this misery in other countries,” Stephanie added, according to Reuters.

    Getty The Lakers may have a chance to bring back Rajon Rondo. The Los Angeles Lakers may have an opportunity to fill out their roster with a familiar fan favorite. Daily Memphian’s Drew Hill suggests the Grizzlies and point guard Rajon Rondo are likely headed towards a buyout before the season tips off. “There are simply too many players for a 15-man roster, and Memphis added two more following the trade that sent Patrick Beverly to Minnesota,” Hill explained. “The Grizzlies will have to find a way to get players off the roster, potentially by buying players out, trading or waiving them. Will Rajon Rondo be part of the team at the season’s beginning? Probably not.” Rondo along with Patrick Beverly and Daniel Oturu were part of a trade that landed the Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe. It marks the second time Rondo has been traded in 2021 as the four-time All-Star was initially dealt by the Hawks to the Clippers at the deadline in exchange for Lou Williams. Rondo’s days as an All-Star may be behind him,...
    More On: new york jets Jets receiver shows positive signs after dreadful start to camp Here are the best Giants-Jets Snoopy Bowl moments What Jets phenom want to be remembered for after career ‘Relentless’ Carl Lawson is unstoppable at Jets training camp Hamsah Nasirildeen’s first NFL game will include a strangely familiar – and not entirely pleasant – coincidence. He will be on one side of an in-state rivalry, likely as a starting outside linebacker for the Jets on Saturday. Fellow rookie Kadarius Toney will be on the opposite side for the Giants when the two teams open their preseason schedules. Just like on Nov. 30, 2019, when Nasirildeen, playing for Florida State, tore the ACL in his left knee over-pursuing a tackle on Toney as the Florida receiver cut back across the field. Enough similarity to create nerves about a repeat scenario? “Nah, I don’t think like that,” Nasirildeen said. “I honestly just think he’s a good player and I like the way he plays the game, but I don’t concern myself with stuff like that. I’ve got...
    Getty The Cowboys should make a run at Gardner Minshew. The Dallas Cowboys have yet to make a move to address the backup quarterback position since Andy Dalton departed in free agency. While Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy has hinted the team is not content with their depth at quarterback, Dallas has not addressed the position this offseason. There is a prime opportunity for the Cowboys to make a run at a former starting quarterback to have insurance behind Dak Prescott. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported the Jaguars’ asking price for Gardner Minshew is a fifth or sixth-round draft pick. “Minshew missed OTAs last week and wants a chance to compete for a starting job after throwing 37 touchdowns to 11 interceptions in two seasons,” Fowler detailed. “San Francisco looked into this before trading up to take Trey Lance at No. 3 overall. And one source from another team said they believe Jacksonville would take a fifth- or sixth-round pick for him.” Minshew posted 2,259 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions in nine games for Jacksonville...
    The prospect of the Tokyo Games taking place behind closed doors has increased after a senior Olympic chief said spectators were ‘not a must-have’. Sportsmail understands organisers are considering making the Olympics a TV-only event, with a decision set to be made in March. International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach admitted on Thursday that organisers have to be ‘flexible’ given coronavirus cases are rising in Japan. The Tokyo Olympic Games could go ahead later this year without spectators attending  And the IOC’s most senior member Dick Pound said: ‘It’s nice to have spectators but it’s not a must-have.’ If the Olympic cannot be held this summer, they will be cancelled altogether rather than postponed again. Pound said: ‘It’s either 2021 or nothing’. He added: ‘Nobody can guarantee the Olympics will open on July 23. But I think there's a very, very, good chance that they can and that they will. ‘They're not going to cancel unless there's a consensus among the government, health authorities and the IOC that it would be too dangerous.’ The IOC’s most senior member, Dick Pound,...
    Patrick Mahomes could still stand a good chance of playing in next week’s AFC Championship Game even after suffering a head injury in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns, a former NFL team doctor says. Mahomes was left wobbly after the hit, needing help to walk to the sidelines and being ruled out for the remainder of the contest. With the Chiefs winning, they are now headed to the AFC Championship game and will host the Buffalo Bills, but whether Mahomes is able to take the field is still up in the air. David Chao wrote in Outkick that the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback may have avoided the worst after being taken down hard in the third quarter of his team’s divisional round matchup against the Browns. The former team doctor for the San Diego Chargers wrote that a player who suffers a head injury generally will miss the next week’s game, though stressed that this is “not the absolute rule.” Chao added that Mahomes will have a full seven days to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol, but believes he...
    Will Smith, Atlanta Braves. (Mandatory Credit: Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports) The Atlanta Braves could trade one of these three players while they still have a chance.Alex Anthopoulos is known to make a deal or two as the Atlanta Braves‘ general manager. The Braves will be favored to win the National League East for the fourth year in a row in 2021. While it is a bit early to say it is World Series or bust for this team, Atlanta was one win away from getting to the Fall Classic this past October. Though Anthopoulos does not have to make any deal he does not see fit, he could part ways with one of these three Braves before the deadline.3 Braves who could be moved before it is too late 3 Will Smith LHP Atlanta Braves There were two intriguing candidates for this No. 3 spot. Both have multiple years under contract with the Braves and could be viable assets teams not as deep into their competitive life cycles as Atlanta. Because parting ways with shortstop Dansby Swanson feels utterly blasphemous...
    Senator Lindsey Graham has admitted he thinks Democrats 'have a good chance of winning the White House', days after Senator Ted Cruz said there could be a 'Democratic sweep' in the upcoming election.     The Senate Judiciary Committee Chair made the shock admission Wednesday during Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.  His comments show signs of a growing lack of confidence within the Republican party that Donald Trump can secure another term, less than three weeks before election day on November 3. It comes as last week, Cruz, a staunch supporter of the president, voiced his fears that Trump would lose to Democratic rival Joe Biden because 'the hard left is showing up no matter what'.  Senator Lindsey Graham (pictured at Thursday's confirmation hearings) has admitted he thinks Democrats 'have a good chance of winning the White House' 'Y'all have a good chance of winning the White House. I don't know where the polls are going to be,' Graham told Democrats during Wednesday's hearing.  Democratic Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar jumped on his surprise comment saying: 'Thank you for acknowledging...
    Jonathon Simmons had to claw his way into the NBA once before, and he may do it again. One of five G League players invited to Warriors minicamp, Simmons has impressed Golden State over the last week, and could have a chance to make the roster next season, according to head coach Steve Kerr. “I think Jonathon Simmons had a really strong week at camp and still has years to offer in the NBA,” Kerr said after Thursday’s minicamp scrimmage. On whether he could make the Warriors’ roster next season, Kerr said, “Possibly.” Seven years after his first developmental-league tryout, Simmons is back in the G League, again attempting to earn a spot on a 15-man roster. Simmons, 31, didn’t take the traditional path to the NBA. Having barely graduated high school, he spent three years in junior college and played in the minor leagues for more than two seasons before breaking through with the Spurs five years ago. Then in 2017, four years after his first developmental-league tryout, Simmons helped lift San Antonio to...

    J Balvin Reveals He Is Just Getting Better After Contracting Coronavirus: I Got It Bad US government health advisers say hospitals are scrambling after Trump administrations abrupt change to Covid-19 data reporting requirements Why the Suns missing the playoffs is the best thing that could have happened to the NBA The NBA is open-minded. It is perhaps the league's defining trait in a tradition-obsessed sports landscape. When fans grew tired of the original East-West All-Star format, the league mixed it up. First, we got the All-Star Draft, then we got the Elam Ending. The Elam Ending was such a resounding success that the league has said it expects to adopt the format for future All-Star Games. The NBA invented the idea of the Draft Lottery to combat tanking and has tinkered with it on several occasions to try to find the right balance between not incentivizing losing while still maintaining parity. When something in basketball is broken, the league office makes an earnest attempt to fix it.  © Provided by CBS Sports This season's race for the No. 8...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci said that he had serious doubts that the Russian-made COVID-19 vaccine, touted by Russian President Vladmir Putin on Tuesday, was safe and effective.  The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases spoke with National Geographic in a virtual panel discussion when he expressed his concerns. 'I hope that the Russians have actually, definitively proven that the vaccine is safe and effective,' Fauci said. 'I seriously doubt that they've done that.' Dr. Anthony Fauci expressed concern about whether Russia's COVID-19 vaccine was proven to be 'safe and effective' He continued:  'Having a vaccine, Deborah, and proving that a vaccine is safe and effective are two different things.' Putin said on Tuesday that Russia had become the first country in the world to grant regulatory approval to a COVID-19 vaccine after less than two months of human testing, a move hailed by Moscow as evidence of its scientific prowess.  The development paves the way for the mass inoculation of the Russian population, even as the final stage of clinical trials to test safety...
    Photo by Jerritt Clark/Getty Images The Los Angeles Dodgers faithful will have their chance to boo the Astros in 2021, if fans are allowed in stadiums at that point.  The MLB had a pretty difficult time getting a 2020 season underway, to say the least, but that didn’t stop the league from moving right on to scheduling the 2021 season. On Thursday morning, the schedule for next years’ season was released, and the matchups between the Astros and Dodgers that are slated to take place on Aug. 3 and Aug. 4 have us all excited. As many baseball fans know, the Astros were recently caught cheating with using a camera in centerfield and banging on a trash can in order to steal pitching signals from the opposing team.  MLB released 2021 schedule today. #Dodgers will play AL West again, Houston Astros are scheduled to visit Dodger Stadium on August 3rd & 4th.#DayToDay — David Vassegh (@THEREAL_DV) July 9, 2020 It was also revealed that the Astros engaged in this illegal practice while winning the 2017 World Series where they beat...
    PITTSBURGH (AP/KDKA) — Presumptive top selection Alexis Lafreniere will have to wait a little bit longer to find out his NHL destination. Chaos reigned at the NHL draft lottery, with the No. 1 pick still up for grabs in a second lottery drawing. The eight teams that lose in the qualifying round of the playoffs have an equal chance of drafting first. The Kings got the second pick, the Senators the third thanks to 2018 trade with San Jose and the league-worst Red Wings dropped to fourth. Ottawa has the third and fifth picks and is the first team since 2000 with two selections in the top five. The Pittsburgh Penguins are set to face the Montreal Canadiens in the qualifying round. Should they lose the series, they will be entered into the lottery to win the right to the first overall pick in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft. (TM and © Copyright 2020 CBS Broadcasting Inc.

    LIVERPOOL once turned down chance to sign Christian Pulisic... and now may have just handed them their first-ever Premier League title. Jurgen Klopp always spoke of his admiration for the former Borussia Dortmund star - whom he worked with at the Bundesliga giants. 1 Klopp once turned down the chance to sign Pulisic - now he might have clinched the Reds the title at Chelsea But the Reds boss never made his move, so as to not disrupt his star front-three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Klopp instead signed a back-up player - rather than a star with regular first-team intentions - in bringing in ex-Stoke man Xherdan Shaqiri. And it may have just reaped the ultimate rewards, as Pulisic scored the opening goal of Chelsea's huge clash with Manchester City. Pep Guardiola's side needed to win in order to delay Liverpool's charge - with anything less resulting in the Reds being crowned champions. 'KLOPP MASTERCLASS' Klopp's side had demolished Crystal Palace just 24 hours with four fantastic goals to signal their intent. But with just minutes left...
