The Weeknd Channels Michael Jackson on “I Can’t Feel My Face”

R&B artist The Weeknd’s latest track has hit the web. A far cry from his previous slower, spacey work, “I Can’t Feel My Face” features a distinctly Michael Jackson-vibe throughout, perhaps signaling a new direction for the crooner. The song is rumored to be the lead single from his upcoming sophomore album and was produced by Ali Payami, Max Martin, Peter Svensson & Savan Kotecha according to Genius.com.

Listen to the track below and check out The Weeknd’s “Earned It.”

Scientists turn blood into nerve cells in pursuit of better pain relief

Canadian researchers have discovered a way to turn blood cells into nerve cells (Credit: Shutterstock)

As it stands, there’s not a whole lot we know about pain. Where a tissue or blood sample can be drawn and studied, our nervous system comprising different kinds of cells running signals through complex piping around the body presents a difficult task for scientific research. But a new study details a technique that turns blood cells into different nerve cells, promising to improve our understanding of why things itch or burn. By extension, it is hoped that it could lead to new forms of pain relief that do away with unwanted side effects such as sleepiness or loss of concentration.

England Rugby Must Abolish Overseas Player “Exceptional Circumstance” Clause

England rugby union coach Stuart Lancaster has confirmed that France-based stars Steffon Armitage of Toulon and Nick Abendanon of Clermont Auvergne will not feature for England at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. This was after declining to exercise the “exceptional circumstances” clause: an add-on to England’s policy of not selecting those playing club rugby overseas.

England, in deciding not to pick either 2014 European Rugby Player of the Year Armitage, or the 2015 winner of the same award, Abendanon, have made a conclusive statement that no matter how good their form and England’s deficiencies in their positions, overseas players will not be selected.

In particular, if Armitage, the best back-rower in Europe is not an “exceptional circumstance,” then who could ever possibly be picked for England when playing abroad? As a result, England and the RFU need to scrap a clause that only provides unnecessary distractions for players and the coaching staff.

Keep the message simple: To play for England, players must be playing in England: full stop.

Lancaster, in a video interview with the BBC, made the most compelling defence yet for England’s policy, citing New Zealand’s decision not to pick world-class prop Carl Hayman at the 2011 World Cup, despite Toulon agreeing to release him.

Lancaster also mentioned New Zealand’s refusal to select Harlequin’s Nick Evans, despite the fact that injuries to their three first-choice 10s, Dan Carter, Aaron Crudden and Colin Slade, left them with their fourth-choice, Stephen Donald, at fly-half for the World Cup final.

England have taken the decision not to select Armitage or Abendanon primarily to maintain the strength of the domestic competition, the Aviva Premiership, but also because agreements with Premiership clubs allow England to call up players for training camps during the regular club season. In France, such arrangements do not exist.

The Premiership as a feeder for England is the more important factor of the two as it is not inconceivable that the best players in Europe, such as Armitage and Abendanon, could demand their own clauses with French clubs to attend England training, rather like Northampton SaintsGeorge North has with Wales.

Abendanon, though, whose form with Clermont has far surpassed his performances with Bath in previous seasons, told Sky Sports he was “gutted” to have been omitted, adding:

“If England had decided to bring in French players, I think me and Steffon probably would have been itching to get hold of English clubs to take us back to the Premiership.”

The way that Armitage and Abendanon have both excelled overseas remains the best argument for invoking the clause.

Strong cases can be made in favour and against England’s policy of not selecting overseas-based players, but the most important thing is that England abolish the “exceptional circumstances” clause as realistically, it will never be invoked. It muddies the issue and provides an unnecessary distraction for the England team.

Greaseless ball bearings: A revolutionary spin on a design that’s been around for ages

Coo Space claims it has massively reduced bearing friction by eliminating the cage generally used to keep balls separated in the bearing races

The humble ball bearing is a key component of nearly every device with moving parts, taking advantage of the vastly reduced friction you can achieve when rolling a ball between two surfaces as opposed to sliding them across one another. Now, a Japanese company has come up with a simple design that removes a key component from a typical bearing – the cage that keeps the balls separated as they roll around. Coo Space’s Autonomous Decentralised Bearings don’t need to be greased, and according to their inventor, this fact alone can reduce their friction by up to 90 percent compared with standard bearings.

Asian shares turn higher as China rallies, dollar up

A pedestrian is reflected in an electronic board showing the various stock prices outside a brokerage in TokyoBy Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) – Asian shares turned higher on Tuesday, reversing earlier losses on the back of gains in Hong Kong and China, while the dollar extended highs scaled in holiday-thinned trading in the previous session and pushed to an eight-year high against the yen. Yellen said she expected economic data to strengthen and noted that some of the U.S. economy's weakness at the start of the year might be due to "statistical noise." The dollar index rose as high as 96.734, and was last up about 0.7 percent at 96.719.
