Chile midfielder Valdivia out of Libertadores opener

Rio De Janeiro, Feb 6 (IANS) Chile international midfielder Jorge Valdivia has been ruled out of Palmeiras' 2013 Copa Libertadores football opener against Peru's Sporting Cristal next week with a thigh injury.

Rio De Janeiro, Feb 6 — Chile international midfielder Jorge Valdivia has been ruled out of Palmeiras' 2013 Copa Libertadores football opener against Peru's Sporting Cristal next week with a thigh injury.

The 29-year-old suffered a knock to his left quadriceps Sunday during the Brazilian club's 3-3 draw against XV de Piracicaba and scans Tuesday confirmed he will need two weeks on the sidelines.

"He received a heavy blow and the muscle has shown signs of trauma," Palmeiras doctor Rubens Sampaio said on the club's website. "It's a shame because he had put a good sequence of games together and was playing well."

While Valdivia will miss the Feb 14 duel at Palmeiras' Pacaembu Stadium in Sao Paulo, he is expected to be fit for the club's away clash at Paraguay's Libertad on February 28.

Palmeiras was relegated to Brazil's second division last year but qualified for the Copa Libertadores.

Oct 1 2014 8:57am CDT | Source: Business Insider

The health world thinks the LeBron James diet is crazy. LeBron didn't eat sugar, carbs, or dairy for 67-straight days this summer.

It's a modified version of a paleo diet — the fad diet where you eat like humans did thousands of years ago.

Britain Is Not At All Sure It Likes The New 'Green' Coke Flavor (KO)

Sep 30 2014 9:15am CDT | Source: Business Insider

Coca-Cola introduced a new Coke into the British market at the start of this month, Coke Life, which sits right in the middle of original Coke and Diet Coke in its portfolio. And comes in a green can. The new can doesn't have any trace of the red branding that Coke traditionally owns. It's like looking at a can of Coke from an alternative universe. A brief social media analysis shows British opinion of the drink is split right down the middle. Coke is hoping the new d ...

Rosetta gives us incredibly detailed images of a comet for the first time in history. Now it’s getting ready to land

Sep 19 2014 1:29pm CDT | Source: National Post

Ten years ago the European Space Agency launched Rosetta, a first-of-its-kind spacecraft on a mission to meet a comet. That comet? 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. It finally accomplished that goal earlier this month — getting into the comet’s orbit. But it’s not done yet. This November, Rosetta will deploy a small probe that, if successful, will land on the comet — the first time we’ve ever made contact with a comet (intentionally). Before Rosetta, we knew comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko as just a ...
