With British politics still engulfed in Brexit chaos at least England’s football teams are providing some much-needed clarity when it comes to their standing in Europe.For the first time in 10 years, four English clubs have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League — the continent’s blue riband club competition.Liverpool’s 3-1 victory at German giants Bayern Munich on Wednesday completed the full house, the night after Manchester City thrashed Schalke 7-0 for a 10-2 aggregate victory.Tottenham Hotspur had already made it through to the last eight with a 4-0 aggregate drubbing of Borussia Dortmund while United’s dramatic victory over Paris St Germain put them back in the last eight for the first time in five years.Not since Chelsea’s unlikely triumph in Bayern Munich’s backyard in 2012 has an English club lifted the trophy.Of the seven Champions League finals prior to that Didier Drogba-inspired win, only once was no English side involved.A slump followed though and in the six seasons after that there were only six English quarter-finalists while in 2012-13 and 2014-15 no Premier League sides made the last eight.Liverpool’s run to the final last year signalled a re-awakening and this season, with holders Real Madrid, Bayern and PSG all out, the odds are shortening on the first all-English final since United beat Chelsea on penalties in Moscow in 2008.Barcelona and Juventus remain formidable threats in Friday’s draw, but both will be hoping to avoid the English sides, in particular Manchester City and Liverpool who are engaged in the tightest domestic title battle in Europe’s big leagues.While Liverpool’s preference may be to win a first English title since 1990, City’s Abu Dhabi owners hired Pep Guardiola with the specific goal of reigning in Europe.“For the owners, the holy grail is the Champions League,” former City defender Danny Mills told Sky Sports. “They have won the Premier league, they have won the FA Cup, won the League Cup but they haven’t quite got the Champions League trophy.”Guardiola said it is “incredible” to have four English clubs in the quarter-finals after a decade of Spanish control which saw the country provide three of the last eight for six successive seasons until this campaign.With Barcelona the only survivor it is the worst showing from Spanish clubs since 2010 when Inter Milan beat Bayern Munich in the final — the last Italian club to win it.It is too soon to start talking of a return to English domination of the Champions League but the quality at the top end of the Premier League this season is unrivalled.Liverpool’s squad strengthening has allowed them to establish parity with a Manchester City side who ran away with the title last year in record-breaking fashion.Tottenham, until a recent slump, admirably kept pace with the leading duo while Manchester United’s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has released the full potential of the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku.Chelsea and Arsenal are still battling for a return to the Champions League via top-four finishes, and both could be in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.The quality extends further down the Premier League table too with the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Watford and West Ham United all capable of keeping the big guns on their toes.
Jaguar spokesman Jonathan Griffiths said he couldn’t comment Friday. A message left with a spokesman for Ripplewood Holdings was not immediately returned. Ford bought Jaguar in 1989 and Land Rover in 2000, joining them with Aston Martin and Volvo to form its Premier Automotive Group. But the automaker lost $12.7 billion in 2006 and has said it expects to burn $17 billion in cash before returning to profitability sometime in 2009. Earlier this week, Ford completed the sale of its controlling stake in Aston Martin for $931 million in cash and preferred stock to Primrose Cove Ltd., a holding company. Ford has taken opening bids for Jaguar and Land Rover and Ford President and CEO Alan Mulally said in late July that the probability of selling the brands is greater than 50 percent. Ford also has begun a strategic review of Volvo, which would be the prelude to a sale. DETROIT – Another former Ford Motor Co. executive has joined the bidding for Ford’s Jaguar and Land Rover brands, a person familiar with the negotiations said Friday. Sir Nick Scheele has joined New York-based Ripplewood Holdings LLC in its bid for the luxury brands that cash-strapped Ford is trying to sell, according to the person, who requested anonymity because the bidding is ongoing. Scheele served as Ford’s president and chief operating officer from 2001 until his retirement in 2005. He also led Jaguar from 1992 to 1999. Scheele’s involvement pits him against Jacques Nasser, who was Ford’s chief executive from 1999 to 2001. Nasser is leading a separate bid by One Equity Partners LLC, according to the person familiar with the negotiations.

Kip Kniskern over at the LiveSide blog spotted a Microsoft job advert that appears to give some insight into a cloud computing platform under development at Redmond that could compete with Google’s just released App Engine or Amazon’s suite of web services. The utility computing platform, codenamed “Red Dog” according to the job ad, is under development at Microsoft’s Cloud Infrastructure Services (CIS) team and aims to see a version one release within the “coming year.” What little info is provided by the job posting is rather obscure, but there are a few juicy tidbits to be had.According to the ad, the platform is “an efficient, virtualized” environment that is “fully automated” and has a “set of highly scalable storage services.” Which translated, likely means a utility computing platform that handles scaling and server management for you and on which you only pay for the storage you need. That means it would be comparable to something like App Engine or Mosso (our coverage).Some wondered after Google’s App Engine announcement Monday evening when Microsoft would offer a competing cloud computing platform. The biggest tip off from the job advertisement that Red Dog is it, is that the CIS team wants the platform to “lead the marketplace as the best platform for rapid development, deployment, and maintenance of internet services and applications.” Microsoft will supposedly roll out a first version of Red Dog to “external customers” (defined later as “ISV customers who are … early adopters”) this year.As Kniskern points out, not much is known about Red Dog at this point, but indications seem to point to some sort of platform as a service offering from Microsoft dropping within the next year.Note: No, that’s not a real Red Dog logo.

The widening scandal surrounding surgeon Paolo Macchiarini and his employment at the Karolinska Insitute (KI) in Stockholm has prompted Urban Lendahl, secretary general of the Nobel Assembly, to resign. Lendahl, a developmental geneticist at KI, was involved in hiring Macchiarini in 2010, according to Swedish media reports. A statement from the Nobel Committee today said that Lendahl expected to be involved in the investigation and was giving up his work on the committee “out of respect for the integrity of the Nobel Prize work.”KI announced last week that it had “lost confidence” in Macchiarini and would cut ties with him when his current contract as a senior researcher ends in November. It also said it would launch an external investigation into the university’s interactions with Maccharini since his hiring as a guest professor in 2010.Lendahl has been a member of the Nobel Assembly at KI since 2000. Made up of 50 professors from KI, the assembly chooses the winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine every year. Lendahl was elected as secretary general in late 2014 and assumed office in early 2015. The secretary general directs the Nobel office at KI, is the assembly’s spokesperson, and usually announces the winner of the prize—as Lendahl did last October, when the Nobel went to three pioneers in antiparasitic drug development. The job “clearly involves a fair share of administrative work,” Lendahl said in an interview last year, “but the most exciting part is to be constantly engaged in thinking about and discussing the best science that is conducted on the planet.”Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) Lendahl’s resignation is an indirect result of The Experiments, a documentary that aired in January on Swedish public television station SVT and that led to KI’s decision to cut ties with Macchiarini. The film detailed the troubling questions about Macchiarini’s pioneering trachea implants—six of eight patients who received his polymer windpipes have died—and the way he described his operations as a success in scientific papers. The documentary also cast doubt on KI’s investigation into Macchiarini’s work. It suggested that four KI doctors who acted as whistleblowers in Macchiarini’s case in 2014 had trouble getting the university to take their concerns seriously and questioned why KI Vice-Chancellor Anders Hamsten cleared Macchiarini of misconduct charges even though an external investigator commissioned by the university found him guilty.In a letter the four doctors wrote to Hamsten and other KI administrators on 1 February, they provided more details about their past difficulties. They also sought to dispel the notion that, until The Experiments was released, KI leaders were not aware of the extent of the problems with Macchiarini’s work. The four say that KI has embarked on a “diversion tactic” whose purpose is “to provide KI, under the leadership of Prof Hamsten, with an air of plausible deniability to the images revealed in the documentary.”“[Vice-Chancellor] Prof Hamsten was informed personally in detail on Feb 21, 2014 by Dr. Grinnemo of the state of the patients operated on at Karolinska and the gross and serial misrepresentation of their clinical outcome in the articles published by Prof Macchiarini,” the letter states. “At this time KI should have immediately initiated an investigation but instead did nothing. After this first meeting at least 9 attempts on our part were initiated to bring attention to these circumstances and implement a moratorium and an investigation to prevent further patients from being put in what seemed to be life-threatening danger.”KI did not launch an investigation until November 2014, after The New York Times reported on the complaints. Another patient received an artificial trachea in the summer of 2014. According to The Experiments, he was able to have it removed after it failed, and he is still alive.
