Despite the Rockies’ early struggles, Ryan McMahon alone has been a good reason to watch Colorado. Through 13 games, the versatile, slugging infielder is second in the National League with six homers, highlighted by a three-homer performance at Coors Field. He’s also tied for second in the NL in extra-base hits with 10, tied for second in total bases with 37 and is third in slugging percentage at .755. But the sabermetrics reveal even more about McMahon’s torrid start, and if he keeps it up, the 26-year-old may very well find himself repping the home team at the MLB All-Star Game come July. McMahon ranks 14th among all MLB hitters in barrels per plate appearance at 10.9%, and is 81st percentile in average exit velocity, 82nd percentile in strikeout percentage (an issue that’s plagued him in the past), 88th percentile in xSlugging (which takes into account the quality of contact instead of outcomes), and 99th percentile in outs above average. OAA is a range-based metric … [Read more...] about Rockies Insider: Amid torrid start, Ryan McMahon’s advanced stats reveal even to more revel over
More than a year since its beginning, the true origin of the COVID-19 pandemic is still unknown, but investigations into the matter have uncovered new questions about a scientific practice known as “gain-of-function” research. Most of the scientific community still contends that the novel coronavirus wreaking havoc on the world is of natural origin . Others argue gain-of-function (GoF) research may have potentially played a role, though, and critics have warned for years the field was dangerous enough to cause a pandemic. The simplest explanation of GoF research is that it is the process of taking a disease and making it more dangerous for some kind of scientific benefit. It can take a variety of forms, but the desired outcome is typically to make a disease more contagious, more deadly or both.

WINDSOR, ENGLAND - Queen Elizabeth will bid a final farewell to Prince Philip, her husband of more than seven decades, at a ceremonial funeral on Saturday, with the nation set to fall silent to mark the passing of a pivotal figure in the British monarchy. While the ceremony will include some of the traditional grandeur of a significant royal event, there will be just 30 mourners inside St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for the funeral service because of COVID-19 restrictions. There will be no public procession, all the congregation will wear masks, and the queen, who says the death has left a "huge void," will sit alone. "She's the queen, she will behave with the extraordinary dignity and extraordinary courage that she always does. And at the same time, she is saying farewell to someone to who she was married for 73 years," said Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who will help officiate at the service. He said he expected the funeral to resonate with the millions of … [Read more...] about Queen Elizabeth and Britain to Bid Farewell to Prince Philip
