  • Dzeko double cheers champions

    first_img Aguero needed just one touch to shoot across McGregor and into the corner. Four minutes later Dzeko lashed in the second, collecting David Silva’s pass and turning Liam Rosenior before expertly finding the top corner. Although early, it looked to be game over, as minds immediately turned to the visitors’ 7-0 thrashing of Sheffield Wednesday and whether it could be repeated. But Hull’s response was emphatic. Clichy, notionally supported by Silva, was an obvious target and was exposed as the hosts hit back in the 21st minute. Ahmed Elmohamady linked well with Rosenior before the latter breezed past Clichy and crossed from the right. There were plenty of blue shirts on hand but the first, Mangala, lost his bearings completely as he sent an unstoppable header arrowing into his own net. Aguero nearly dampened the celebrations when he went straight up the pitch and slotted an inch or two wide on the counter but Hull were not finished either. Diame began to boss the midfield, Toure and Fernandinho dropping deeper and deeper, while Elmohamady and Rosenior continued their assault on Clichy. The reward came in the 32nd minute, Diame chipping to Hernandez only for the striker to be taken out by Mangala’s wild high-footed challenge. The Uruguayan sent Caballero the wrong way and the champions were glad to hear the half-time whistle. But the balance shifted again soon after the restart, Toure clattering the post from long distance. Pellegrini’s men were back on the front foot, Silva re-emerging after a quiet period and Aguero always nagging. But with the scores still tied the ineffective Fernandinho gave way for Jesus Navas for the last 25 minutes. It was a risky switch that left Manchester City light on ball-winners but they regained the lead in a matter of minutes. Silva was the driver, cutting inside and riding Diame’s challenge before freeing Dzeko on the left. The striker finished clinically, sliding his shot past the outstretched McGregor and in at the far post. Hull had not given up, Gaston Ramirez working Caballero after stepping off the bench alongside Hatem Ben Arfa, and Tom Huddlestone seeing his 20-yard drive loop up off Kompany and over the crossbar. But there was just enough time for Lampard to add to his remarkable scoring sequence, arriving with a typical late run to convert Zabaleta’s cut-back. Edin Dzeko’s wonderful double and Frank Lampard’s fourth goal in three games sealed victory for Manchester City despite the champions at one stage surrendering a two-goal lead over Hull. The Frenchman, so impressive on debut against Chelsea last weekend, headed a calamitous own-goal past Willy Cabellero – handed a Barclays Premier League debut ahead of the dropped Joe Hart – and then gave away a penalty with a reckless high tackle on Abel Hernandez. Hull’s record signing converted the spot-kick and at half-time it was the hosts who seemed likelier winners. But Manuel Pellegrini’s visiting side regained control after the interval and sealed victory through Dzeko’s clinical finish and a trademark strike from the evergreen Lampard. For Pellegrini a first win in four league matches will be relief, but there was plenty of room for improvement. Gael Clichy was a near liability at left-back and the expensively assembled midfield pairing of Yaya Toure and Fernandinho was frequently cowed by £3.5million man Mohamed Diame. The game began at a furious pace, Aguero charging at goal and testing Allan McGregor at the near post with just 40 seconds on the clock. Hull wasted little time making inroads of their own, Jake Livermore sending a devilish cross into the six-yard box where Nikica Jelavic just failed to make contact having slipped between Vincent Kompany and Mangala. It took just seven minutes for the opener to arrive, Hull having twice failed to get the ball clear. They left Aguero criminally unmarked as Pablo Zabaleta battled hard to head back into the danger zone. City looked to have pocketed the points early on as Sergio Aguero and Dzeko both found the net inside 11 minutes, the Bosnian hitting a stunning strike from the edge of the penalty area. But Hull wrestled their way back into contention with a helping hand from £32million centre-back Eliaquim Mangala. Press Associationlast_img read more

  • Student designs tonic to benefit brain functions

    first_imgThe excitement in Andrew Kozlovski’s voice is clear as he reels off the ingredients in the chemical cocktail he’s brewed; Brainz Power is a mixture of dietary supplements and research chemicals that gives students an additional edge in their learning abilities.The cognitive enhancement tonic Kozlovski, a sophomore studying business, designed is a nootropic, which comes from the Greek “noos” for “mind.” It is intended to safely enhance cognitive functioning by promoting better memory, clarity, focus and enhanced problem-solving abilities and has resulted in a successful entrepreneurial venture for Kozlovski.According to Kozlovski, the idea for the nootropic came after he realized that many of his fellow students were taking prescription pills in order to concentrate more effectively.“It’s the demand from the student community which made me start researching,” Kozlovski said. “Once I saw that there are alternatives to prescribed medication, I started to think that I had a pretty good idea.”Kozlovski went about looking for a natural solution and started collecting ingredients for his formula, which would later become Brainz Power. Once the manufacturers for the drug were found, he came up with a sustainable marketing plan and has gone about executing it for the past eight months. The venture boasts a highly popular Instagram account, which Kozlovski notes as the most effective channel among all of social media with a following of more than 100,000.According to Kozlovski, Brainz Power works because similar products like Adderall are inaccessible to the general population and are not healthy. Kozlovski noted that all the ingredients of his product are natural and, therefore, completely safe for consumption. Legally, the product has passed all verifications, as the manufacturing unit and the process under which the formula is made have been approved by the FDA.Kozlovski believes that this is the first time that a nootropic has been marketed to such an extent, reaching out to more people as a primary option instead of an alternative. The tonic bottles are priced at $3 each, a price that Kozlovski said he is able to maintain because he uses free online promotions instead of costly newspaper advertisements. This business scheme has helped the venture reach out to several hundred thousand customers.For Kozlovski, the motivation behind starting this venture was more than just executing a business plan successfully.“I was always looking for a great business idea that I could work on,” Kozlovski said. “But I was also looking for a way in which I could invent something that could make a difference in people’s lives.”Kozlovski has had an abundance of support from his friends and professors, who have encouraged him throughout the process.“It was great to hear someone so young create a solution to stop college kids to stop abusing harmful medications,” said Michael Wang, a sophomore majoring in neuroscience. “He told me about how the science works behind all of the ingredients, and I looked them up. There are universities that have tested these ingredients, concluding and confirming that there are positive results.”last_img read more
