About the CIES Football Observatory The CIES Football Observatory is a unique project initiated in 2005 by Drs Raffaele Poli and Loïc Ravenel under the name of the Professional Football Players Observatory (PFPO). Since 2011 it is one of the cornerstones of the broader CIES Sports Observatory project, dedicated to the statistical analysis of sport in all its diversity. Two annual reports are published for football. In January, the Demographic Study presents an in-depth analysis of club composition and player characteristics in 31 top division leagues of UEFA member countries. In June, the Annual Review analyses clubs and players in the big-5 European leagues from a demographic, economic and pitch performance perspective. Methodological rigour coupled with a deep knowledge of football guarantee high quality analyses at competitive rates. For more information: www.football-observatory.com About the CIES The International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES) is an independent study centre located in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. It was created in 1995 as a joint venture between the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the University of Neuchâtel, the City and State of Neuchatel. Using a multi-disciplinary approach CIES provides research, top-level education and consulting services to the sports world with the aim of overcoming the complexities of sport in today’s society and improving how it is governed and managed.

Stem Cell Therapy in a Caprine Model of Osteoarthritis J. Mary Murphy,1 David J. Fink,1 Ernst B. Hunziker,2 and Frank P. Barry1 Objective. To explore the role that implanted mesenchymal stem cells may play in tissue repair or regeneration of the injured joint, by delivery of an autologous preparation of stem cells to caprine knee joints following induction of osteoarthritis (OA). Methods. Adult stem cells were isolated from caprine bone marrow, expanded in culture, and transduced to express green fluorescent protein. OA was induced unilaterally in the knee joint of donor animals by complete excision of the medial meniscus and resection of the anterior cruciate ligament. After 6 weeks, a single dose of 10 million autologous cells suspended in a dilute solution of sodium hyaluronan was delivered to the injured knee by direct intraarticular injection. Control animals received sodium hyaluronan alone. Results. In cell-treated joints, there was evidence of marked regeneration of the medial meniscus, and implanted cells were detected in the newly formed tissue. Degeneration of the articular cartilage, osteophytic remodeling, and subchondral sclerosis were reduced in cell-treated joints compared with joints treated with vehicle alone without cells. There was no evidence of repair of the ligament in any of the joints. Conclusion. Local delivery of adult mesenchymal stem cells to injured joints stimulates regeneration of meniscal tissue and retards the progressive destruction normally seen in this model of OA.
Joint science academies’ statement: Global response to climate change Climate change is real There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring1. The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological systems. It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)2. This warming has already led to changes in the Earth's climate. The existence of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is vital to life on Earth – in their absence average temperatures would be about 30 centigrade degrees lower than they are today. But human activities are now causing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases – including carbon dioxide, methane, tropospheric ozone, and nitrous oxide – to rise well above pre-industrial levels. Carbon dioxide levels have increased from 280 ppm in 1750 to over 375 ppm today – higher than any previous levels that can be reliably measured (i.e. in the last 420,000 years). Increasing greenhouse gases are causing temperatures to rise; the Earth’s surface warmed by approximately 0.6 centigrade degrees over the twentieth century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projected that the average global surface temperatures will continue to increase to between 1.4 centigrade degrees and 5.8 centigrade degrees above 1990 levels, by 2100.
Delaware Higher Education Ofﬁce As part of the Delaware Department of Education, the Delaware Higher Education Ofﬁce (DHEO) works to ensure that postsecondary education is accessible and affordable for Delaware residents by providing information and ﬁnancial assistance to students and their families. We administer 23 state-sponsored ﬁnancial aid programs, which include grants, scholarships, regional contracts, and professional incentive programs. Last year, 2,114 Delaware residents were awarded $4,252,800 through these programs. As a member of the Southern Regional Education board, Delaware is able to provide additional tuition savings for its residents through the Academic Common Market (ACM), a tuition-savings agreement among 15 southern states. ACM students attending college last year saved an average of $12,800 in tuition costs, totaling more than $1,340,000 in savings for the year. Since joining SREB in 1998, Delaware families have saved over $11,600,000 through the ACM program. To increase educational opportunities for Delawareans, DHEO works with state ofﬁcials to develop new ﬁnancial assistance programs. Twenty programs have been introduced since 1997: • Academic Common Market • Critical Need Scholarship • Delaware College Investment Plan • Delaware Institute for Dental Education & Research (DIDER) / Temple University Partnership • Delaware SEED Scholarship Program • Delaware State Loan Repayment Plan for Health Professionals • Delaware Teacher Corps • Democracy Project D.C. Fellows Program • Michael C. Ferguson Achievement Award • Governor’s Education Grant for Working Adults • Governor’s Education Grant for Unemployed Adults • Charles L. Hebner Memorial Scholarship • Inspire Scholarship • Legislative Essay Scholarship • State University of New York Maritime College Regional Partnership • National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Loan • Nursing Education Retention Scholarship • The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars • Veterinary Medicine Contract Program, Oklahoma State University • Veterinary Medicine Contract Program, University of Georgia DHEO also serves as the state’s clearinghouse for postsecondary data and research. Data is collected on enrollment, ﬁnancial aid, ﬁnance, and trends to meet state and federal mandates, regional contractual agreements, and national data...
