    Clowney vows to repay mother after going No. 1 Clowney vows to

    Jadeveon Clowney looked every inch the best young prospect the National Football League has seen in years when he took his first steps into the professional ranks on Thursday. As widely expected, the 21-year-old was chosen by the Houston Texans as the first overall pick at the annual NFL Draft and took the news in his stride. When the defensive end’s name was announced, he strolled on to the podium at Radio City Music Hall like he had been in the spotlight all his life, flashing a sheepish smile and hugged NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “It’s the greatest feeling,” he later told reporters. “It’s like the pressure was relieved. “I always wanted to play in the NFL, I always wanted to be a football player and now I’ve got my chance.” Stan

    Bayern Munich have been ordered to close part of their stadium for the Champions League match at home to Manchester United next month for “discriminatory behavior” by their supporters, UEFA said on Monday. Bayern will have to shut “Sector 124″ of the Allianz Arena for the quarter-final second leg on April 9, UEFA said, although they gave no indication of which part of the stadium that section is located in or how many seats will be affected. UEFA said fans showed “an illicit banner” during the round of 16 tie at home to Arsenal earlier this month. It declined to give more details about the cause of the ban, although media photographs showed a group of fans with a homophobic banner aimed at Arsenal. The German club have also been fined 10,000 euros ($13,8

    Brain cells collude to keep animals hydrated while they sleep. V. Balantsev/iStockphoto The body’s internal clock helps to regulate a water-storing hormone so that nightly dehydration or trips to the toilet are not the norm, research suggests. In an article published in Nature Neuroscience today, neurophysiologists Eric Trudel and Charles Bourque at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre in Montreal, Canada, propose a mechanism by which the body’s circadian system, or internal clock, controls water regulation 1 . By allowing cells that sense water levels to activate cells that release vasopressin, a hormone that instructs the body to store water, the circadian system keeps the body hydrated during sleep. “We’ve known for years that there’

    The Miami Heat reversed their regular season form against Brooklyn and dispatched the Nets 107-86 in the opening game of their Eastern Conference second round series on Tuesday. The Heat had lost all four meetings with the Nets during the regular season, but the two-time defending NBA champions have been dominant in the playoffs, improving to 5-0 after whitewashing Charlotte in the opening round. LeBron James led the way with 22 points, Ray Allen scored 19 off the bench and Miami outsourced Brooklyn 61-43 in the second half to run away with the win. Nets forwards Paul Pierce (eight points) and Kevin Garnett (zero points, four rebounds) were non-factors. Game Two of the best-of-seven series is on Thursday, again in Miami.

    Robin van Persie’s hat-trick lifted Manchester United to a stunning Champions League comeback against Olympiakos Piraeus on Wednesday as Borussia Dortmund edged out Zenit St Petersburg to complete the quarter-final lineup. United, trailing 2-0 from the first leg, won 3-0 at Old Trafford to stay in the hunt for a fourth Champions League title and last season’s runners-up Dortmund lost their second leg 2-1 but went through 5-4 on aggregate. Van Persie cut a forlorn figure as United suffered a humbling defeat by arch-rivals Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday, but he was back to his lethal best as he picked apart the Greek side who have now lost all 12 matches they have played in England. The Dutch striker opened the scoring after 25 minutes from the penalty spot after being

    Outgoing Greece coach Fernando Santos has angered sections of the local media and soccer figures by claiming that some of his players were more interested in personal success than following instructions. Greece lost on penalties against 10-man Costa Rica in their last 16 clash in Recife on Sunday, after the match had ended 1-1 in extra time. However, Santos, whose contract expired on Monday, said in a radio interview in his native Portugal that instead of focusing on teamwork, some players had pursued individual glory. Outspoken Panathinaikos president Giannis Alafouzos led thecriticism of the 59-year-old Santos. “He is blaming the players for the elimination. It’s a shamehe did not use the talented young players at his disposal instead of being stuck in his ways,” Alafou
