With companies looking to move away from animal testing, a new toxicity tester algorithm could save thousands of animals’ lives.After decades of animal testing for everything from industrial cleaners to beauty products, it seems as if artificial intelligence will soon be stepping into save potentially thousands of animals from further testing.A team of researchers led by Rutgers University announced a first-of-its-kind algorithm for the testing of chemical toxicity for the benefit of workers in various industries and the animals behind the scenes.Of the 85,000 compounds used in consumer products, the majority have not been comprehensively tested for safety.However, not only is it considered an ethical issue, but the researchers state that trying to test tens of thousands of chemicals on animals is both too costly and time consuming.“There is an urgent, worldwide need for an accurate, cost-effective and rapid way to test the toxicity of chemicals,” said lead researcher Daniel Russo.

But honest communication and clear goals are key to win the public over.Drip, drip, drip … that’s the sound of relevant information emerging around the future of Ireland’s seven-year-old National Broadband Plan.Yesterday (16 April) Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in responding to Sinn Fein TD Mary Lou McDonald’s questions, confirmed that rather than the plan – if it is passed by cabinet – costing €3bn in one fell swoop, it will be spread out over 25 years.‘Again, bear in mind the benefits – 540,000 homes, farms and businesses, over a million people.A huge project, a huge scale’The plan was meant to go before cabinet yesterday but possibly due to the tragicomedy that is the state of Irish soccer and other pressing matters like the freak show that is Brexit, it might not be rubber-stamped this month as Ireland’s legislators like to enjoy a generous two-week break.

Once upon a time, Amir Khan sported a 18-0 record, an Olympic gold medal and many thought he was the next great No.In 2008, one Breidis Prescott left hook badly hurt Khan, followed by a two-punch combination and Khan was on his back.But another left hook put him down in the corner and it was all over.Since that night, Khan has gone 15-3.Yet he has managed to still be a PPV draw thanks to his British Olympian star power and the fact that top fighters were willing to fight him due to the lack of a solid chin.But that continues to make Khan the perfect PPV opponent.

Why, it’s the Rays, of course.Yes, in winning 12 of their first 16 games on the schedule, Tampa Bay has not only vaulted out to a surprising head start in the AL East, but they also sit atop baseball as well.That pitching staff — and its penchant for unders — will be put to the test this weekend when they host the reigning world champion Boston Red Sox  in a three-game set at Tropicana Field.But that hasn’t come to fruition yet in 2019.Instead, a freak accident as the fourth-year southpaw was trying to move a granite stand in his bathroom took place, and now Snell is on the shelf for one start -- if not more.Enter the Rays’ “bullpen game” strategy, which is the expected option for the AL East division leaders to replace Snell in the first meeting.

Considering how the Seattle Mariners’ roster was decimated during an offseason that followed an 89-win campaign, their hot start to 2019 has been the biggest surprise during the first month of the 2019 season.In a year the Mariners were supposed to suffer through rebuilding growing pains, after selling off several veteran players from the core in exchange for prospects who were to help the team win in the future, it turns out the young guys can play.The Mariners became just the third team since 1987 to open with at least 13 wins in the first 15 games after Milwaukee (14-1 in 1987) and Boston (13-2 last year).They became just the 17th team since 1900 to win at least 13 of their first 15 games in a season, something that takes place about once every seven years.A recent 0-4 skid brought them back to reality.Guys like Dan Vogelbach and Domingo Santana and Jay Bruce and Edwin Encarnacion have sparked a lineup that headed into Tuesday’s action ranked third with a .275 batting average.
