  • Can eating right really prevent cancer?

    Photo: Cancer is scary—mostly because it happens so randomly and seems so totally out of your control. In fact, a study published earlier this year found that two-thirds of adult cancer incidences can be attributed to random gene mutations that drive tumor growth. “Good nutrition is incredibly important when it comes to cancer prevention,” says Anna Taylor, a clinical dietitian at the Cleveland Clinic.

  • All Blacks demand better against Wallabies

    Three wins from three but the All Blacks believe they've let themselves down with their start to 2015. Centre Conrad Smith is none too pleased with what the world champions have produced in wins over Samoa, Argentina and South Africa and was particularly hard on himself. New Zealand were out-muscled in the second half in Apia, were patchy for periods against the Pumas and despite the good press following their 27-20 win over South Africa at Ellis Park, there were plenty of dropped heads during the review process.

  • NZ openers seal victory in second Zimbabwe ODI

    Openers Martin Guptill and Tom Latham both struck centuries as New Zealand crushed Zimbabwe by 10 wickets in the second one-day international on Tuesday to set up a series decider. Chasing 236 to level the three-match series at Harare Sports Club, Guptill finished unbeaten on 116 while Latham was 110 not out as New Zealand achieved the target with almost eight overs to spare. The pair set a new record for the highest successful chase in an ODI without losing a wicket, bettering the 231 that Sri Lanka managed in a 10-wicket win over England in the 2011 World Cup quarter-final, as they ensured that New Zealand bounced back from Sunday's shock seven-wicket defeat, in convincing fashion.

  • Samsung glamour days over as it fights to save mobile market share

    For four years Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has basked in the success of its Galaxy smartphones, making billions of dollars competing with Apple Inc in the premium mobile market. The coming years are set to be more somber for the South Korean tech giant, as it is forced to slash prices and accept lower margins at its mobile division in order to see off competition from rivals including China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and Xiaomi Inc in the mid-to-low end of the market. Behind Samsung's reality-check is the fact it is stuck with the same Android operating system used by its low-cost competitors, who are producing increasingly-capable phones of their own.
