England wing Jonny May insists his spectacular try in Saturday's 24-21 defeat by New Zealand has relieved the pressure generated by his previous white line fever. Only two minutes were on the clock when May gathered the ball in midfield, accelerated around Conrad Smith and then outpaced Israel Dagg to touch down in the left corner. It was a sensational burst of speed that bewitched the classy Smith and Dagg, enabling the Gloucester threequarter to cross for the first time in eight Tests in a cathartic moment having dropped the ball over the line against Ireland in February. It's almost a demon off the back to get that first try," May said. "As a winger you want to score tries and the pressure does build on you when you don't. "You just want that chance to prove what you can and I'm glad I had the chance to put what happened against Ireland right. England's patience with May appeared to have been exhausted during the summer after he was dropped in the wake of the first Test defeat by New Zealand in Auckland. It's funny because when you're playing you can see clips of it and you think, 'ah, that was me'," said May, whose best time in the 100m is 10. 7secs recorded two years.
BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Accusations of bribes from drug traffickers, spying and email hacking have turned Colombia's presidential election into an ugly slugfest that has further polarized a country trying to emerge from its violent past. The mudslinging has distracted attention from talks with the country's main rebel group to end the country's half-century internal conflict, which had been expected to be a key issue going into Sunday's election. Much of the blame for the dirty campaigning falls on two former allies whose public feuding has divided Colombia the past four years: President Juan Manuel Santos and his still-powerful predecessor, Alvaro Uribe. Despite presiding over what may be South America's best-performing economy, Santos is struggling amid relentless attacks by Uribe and his hand-picked heir, former finance chief Oscar Ivan Zuluaga. Zuluaga's conservative Democratic Center movement has lambasted Santos for what it calls his softness in 18-month-old negotiations with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known as the FARC.
Offering tests to men in their late forties could reduce prostate cancer deaths by half, say experts. Prostate specific antigen (PSA) screening is used to detect prostate cancer, but remains controversial, because it became widespread long before there was substantial evidence to prove its value. Until now, the most recent study found that prostate cancer screening reduced deaths by 20 per cent. In 2010, when the UK National Screening Committee in England last reviewed medical data, it decided that a national screening programme should not be introduced. But now Swedish research, published in the BMJ, has found that if screening was offered to men aged between 45 and 49, it would predict nearly half of all cases. Researchers reviewed a study carried out between 1974 and 1984 involving 21,277 Swedish men aged between 27 and 52. All the men had donated blood samples at the start of the study. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. More than 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year. PSA is a protein produced by both normal and cancerous prostate cells.
