  • Climate Pledge Arena lays out plan to become world’s first carbon neutral arena

    Feel bad for hockey fans in the Seattle area. You want to enjoy a game not get lectured about how you should live or get leftist propaganda. With Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena set to open this fall, it kicked off a new series this last week designed to explain its plans to become the world’s first net zero carbon certified arena. “We’re innovating to dramatically reduce our carbon emissions, and investing in nature based solutions to make up for any emissions we can’t eliminate,” the arena said in a two-minute video posted to Twitter.

  • Researchers Have Found A Way To Regrow Teeth

    04/02/2021 1:10:44 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 54 replies ^ | 30 March 2021 | Benjamin Taub
    False teeth could one day be a thing of the past, thanks to the discovery of an antibody that sparks the regeneration of lost teeth. By inhibiting the action of a gene called USAG-1, the antibody increases the availability of certain growth factors, and could eventually be used to help people grow a new set of pearly whites. Publishing their work in the journal Science Advances, a team of researchers describes how they genetically modified mice to suffer from tooth agenesis, where some teeth fail to develop. Injecting pregnant mice from this line with the USAG-1 antibody, however, resulted in...

    New York Rangers star Artemi Panarin is taking a leave of absence from the team in wake of a politically motivated article from Russia, in which his former Vityaz head coach alleges that the ex-forward of the Moscow Region club beat an 18-year-old girl in Riga, Latvia in 2011, The Post’s Larry Brooks reported Monday morning. Andrei Nazarov, who is currently the head coach of the KHL’s Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, has repeatedly criticized Panarin for the forward’s outspoken beliefs regarding Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s regime. Nazarov is a known Putin supporter.
  • De Blasio U-turn on Trump ice rinks: NYC Mayor says Wollman and Lasker rinks in Central Park will stay OPEN and Trump Organization will remain the operator

    The Wollman and Lasker rinks will not be closed after all, with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio suddenly folding to pressure to keep the ice rinks open. Sunday was destined to be the last day of the season the rinks would be open in Central Park. The mayor wanted to shut them down because they are run by the Trump Organization, whose contracts he has been trying to cancel in the wake of the Capitol riot.

    The de Blasio administration is planning to eliminate one of two ice skating rinks run by the Trump Organization in the northern part of Central Park, despite strong public opposition. Over 4,000 people have signed a petition decrying a $150 million plan to refurbish Lasker Rink and Pool near W. 106th Street, saying that it will deprive local residents of much-needed recreation space. The renovation will reduce the size of the rink area, leaving room for just one rink for skaters, and also make a public swimming pool operated by the city’s Parks Department smaller. The Trump Organization’s 20-year concession...

    Are we still permitted to question and debate the mask and lockdowns, or is the new inquisition muzzling us in more than a figurative way? Many – including physicians and health-care workers of all stripes – have been skeptical of the mask (as well as the curfews and ‘stay at home’ orders) and their prophylactic efficacy: What do these layers of fabric do to stop a virus that is so small it almost obeys the rules of the quantum world? People speak of ‘particularates’ and ‘expectoration’ with solemn and grave tones, as though viruses could vector no other way, when...

    You have to see it to believe it.Peter DeBoer said those words after the Vegas Golden Knights coach put the team through a fun, spirited pregame practice Friday on the NHL's makeshift rink built atop the 18th fairway at Edgewood Tahoe Resort, a slap shot away from Lake Tahoe with the Sierra Nevada in the distance. "I think the pictures, as beautiful as they are, don't do it justice," DeBoer said. "I grew up in Canada and I know anywhere in the Northeast of the United States or Minnesota, anywhere they can build outdoor rinks, there's always a competition on...

  • Rangers place Tony DeAngelo on waivers (Is it due to his politics?)

    NBC Sportd ^ | Jan. 31, 2021 | By Adam Gretz
    There was a surprising name on the NHL waiver wire on Sunday afternoon when the New York Rangers waived defenseman Tony DeAngelo. Why so surprising? Well, let’s count the ways. First there is the fact defense is the clear Achilles Heel of this Rangers team, and they aren’t really in a position to potentially be giving away players that could help for nothing. For all of his flaws away from the puck (and there are many), he can be very good — and perhaps even elite — with it. DeAngelo is coming off of a 2019-20 campaign that saw him...

    KINGMAN, Alberta - Larry Asp grew up playing shinny outside in this tiny rural town he calls home again after 40 years away. Since returning, he also holds the keys to the outdoor “Rink of Dreams” that gives the 90 local residents the chance to skate outside during the keen Canadian winters. Out here on the prairie an hour’s drive southeast of Edmonton, the ice in the former “Lutefisk Capital of Alberta” doesn’t seem to freeze as long as it used to, not like when Asp was a kid. Pond hockey has been a tradition for generations in places like...

    Canada will play for gold. Again. And of course. A powerhouse Canadian squad humbled Russia — as they have just about every other country they’ve played — with a 5-0 victory Monday night at the world junior hockey championship. The Canadians have a chance Tuesday night at Edmonton’s Rogers Place (9:30 p.m. Eastern) against the Americans to defend the gold medal they won last year in the Czech Republic. The U.S. beat Finland 4-3 in the late semifinal. “It’s a great feeling that we are here, and that we got here, but the job’s not done yet,” said goalie Devon...
