RIO DE JANEIRO Adidas Ultra Boost Custom España , Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- Flamengo's former Brazil international center-back Rever could be sidelined until 2018 because of a knee injury, according to club officials.

The 32-year-old tore the medial ligament of his right knee during Flamengo's 1-0 victory over local rivals Fluminense in their Copa Sudamericana semifinal first leg on Wednesday.

The club's medical staff said he was likely to be out of action for at least six weeks.

"Rever is our captain and he's going to be greatly missed," Flamengo midfielder Everton Ribeiro told reporters on Thursday.

"I spoke with him and he's in a lot of pain. We're hoping that he can recover as quickly as possible."

It is the second time in less than a week that Flamengo have lost a key player due to a knee injury

On Monday, the club's Colombian international winger Orlando Berrio was ruled out for eight months after suffering a ruptured patellar tendon of his right knee.

To pay off his dead father鈥檚 gambling debts, Bobby (Peter Facinelli) finds himself in indentured servitude to Jax (Vincent Gallo), a hotheaded loan shark Adidas Ultra Boost Cookies and Cream España , and forced to become a pickpocketpetty thief. Along with his regular, brutal encounters with Jax, Bobby also has the law after him, for stealing the badge of Police Lieutenant Sully (Michael Madsen). As if his life weren鈥檛 fraught enough, a recent one-night stand with Lucy (Jaimie Alexander) has resulted in her pregnancy for this decidedly most un-paternal of dudes.

Facinelli produced and wrote the screenplay for Loosies, which Adidas Ultra Boost Kith España , like so many other actor-induced vehicles (Brando鈥檚 self-directed One-Eyed Jacks being a prime example), has many scenes of him being beaten up, by Jax鈥檚 henchmen or Lucy鈥檚 bartender. Call it a kind of star-entitled martyrdom meant to guarantee audience empathy. Unfortunately, the film is such a random, cacophonous mess that the primary emotion evoked is stupefication. Although he starts off with a slickly clever montage of Bobby鈥檚 pickpocket techniques, director Michael Corrente tries to jab some jittery life into this with frenetic pacing and encouraging his actors to cartoonish extremes Adidas Ultra Boost ACE 16 España , but the characters, when not completely off-putting, are just uninteresting.

I鈥檝e enjoyed Facinelli in Can鈥檛 Hardly Wait and 鈥淣urse Jackie,鈥?where he evinced an amusing egomaniacal comic flair, but he seems more of a character guy than a true lead, lacking the charismatic weight which could turn this movie into a fun Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged España , dark-edged romp. Alexander is pretty and shows some strength as Lucy, but what she鈥檚 given to do is shoddy stuff. Marianne Leone as Rita, Bobby鈥檚 mother, acts with a mistimed intensity that doesn鈥檛 quite match up to the rest of the performances. As her love interest, a savvy jeweler named Carl, to whom Bobby takes an instant aversion Adidas Ultra Boost ATR Mid España , Joe Pantoliano gives a measured performance that is the film鈥檚 best, but also somehow seems out of place. Madsen has little to do but huff and grump, along with his police superior, a very wasted William Forsythe. As for Gallo, guess what? He鈥檚 weird and manic and out-of control: quel stretch.Peter Facinelli takes a break from the Twilight franchise to play Bobby, a professional pickpocket who uses the New York subway as his hunting grounds. He’s young Adidas Ultra Boost Clima España , he’s unattached 鈥?until he runs into Lucy, a woman he had a one-night stand with, who tells him she’s three months pregnant.

CANBERRA, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Funding from a Hong Kong-based charitable organization will allow Australian scientists to study how new technology can improve outcomes for gastrointestinal (GI) cancer patients.

Sean Grimmond and Alex Boussioutas, researchers from the Center for Cancer Research at the University of Melbourne, were granted 3 million U.S. dollars by the Li Ka Shing Foundation to research how genome sequencing can be used in diagnosing and treating upper-GI cancers.

Upper-GI cancers include cancers of the pancreas Adidas Ultra Boost Laceless España , stomach and esophagus. Gastric cancer is particularly prominent in Asia while pancreatic cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in the United States.

Grimmond, director of the Center for Cancer Research, said that genome sequencing, the process by which the DNA sequence of an organism can be determined, could change the way cancer is treated.

He said that the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) is working to establish a database of whole genetic sequences from 25,000 cancer patients with 50 types of cancer.

"The next step is seeing how we can use genome readouts to give us better insights into a patient's outcome: can we make decisions on improving cancer treatment based on the readouts Adidas Ultra Boost 2.0 España ," Grimmond told Xinhua on Tuesday.

"We also want to understand the oncogenic switch in upper-GI cancers that causes a pre-malignant lesion to become a tumour that grows out of control.

"It could change everything from the diagnosis of a cancer to the treatment."

He said that the cost of undertaking sequencing was becoming more affordable every year to the point where having genes sequenced could be commonplace within five years.

"When the first Australian cancer patient was sequenced, it was in 2010 as part of a big international initiative, it cost us all up about (800,000 U.S. dollars) and 40 people worked on that project," Grimmond said.

"At that stage that team could do maybe four patients a year.

"We're now at a stage where the technology allows us to do 3,000 patients a year at several thousand dollars per patient with a much smaller team.

"Within five years we should be looking at a price point between an x-ray and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)."

The team from the cancer research center had been interested in studying upper-GI cancers for years Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 España , Grimmond said, when the.
