David Glidden Released from Atlanta Falcons

first_imgRookie wide receiver David Glidden was released this weekend in advance of the cuts to get to the 75 man roster by Tuesday, the team announced.Glidden played sparingly for the Falcons and was released after the teams third preseason game. In his first serious action as a pro, Glidden recorded two receptions for negative four yards in his final game for the Falcons.Even though he was cut, there’s no question he left his mark in his short time.

Choirul Huda, Indonesian goalkeeper, dies after collision with team-mate

first_imgChoirul Huda, goalkeeper for the Indonesian top-flight club Persela Lamongan, has died after a collision with a team-mate during a league match on Sunday.The 38-year-old collided with his defender Ramon Rodrigues and an opponent as he came off his line to challenge for the ball during a game against Semen Padang. He was rushed to hospital where he died.A statement from a doctor at the Dr Soegiri Lamongan Hospital, posted on the official Persela website, said Huda suffered a “traumatic collision” which led to a cardiac arrest.It said that initial analysis revealed the impact was to the chest and lower jaw, resulting in the “possibility of chest trauma, head trauma and neck trauma”.Huda had played for Persela since 1999, making more than 500 appearances, and the club described him as “the Real Legend of Persela” in a tribute on Twitter.

England on the edge of series defeat as Australia tighten grip on the Ashes

first_imgAshes 2017-18 Sign up to the Spin – our weekly cricket round-up Read more Unsurprisingly the pitch looked a little livelier when the Australian bowlers took the field after resting up for the best part of two days. Mark Stoneman fell, caught behind, for his first single-figure score of the series in Hazlewood’s first over. Cook clipped two leg-side boundaries and looked sharp enough until a leading edge went back down the pitch, where an inspired Hazlewood dived to his right before completing a brilliant one-handed catch.Out came Root, steeling himself to regain the initiative. As ever he began busily, whereupon Steve Smith summoned Lyon on a pitch that has been no more helpful to spinners than an umbrella in a hurricane – incidentally it seems that umbrellas are the latest item to be banned from Australian cricket grounds. Lyon’s first ball was speculative, wide and on a good length, a nice sighter for the batsman, except that Root chose to drive it. The edge clipped the gloves and knee of the wicketkeeper before landing gently in the hands of a jubilant Smith at slip.That England avoided an immediate subsidence was down to James Vince and then a plucky partnership between the first-innings heroes, Dawid Malan and Jonny Bairstow. Vince batted in princely fashion with barely an error. Twelve boundaries fizzed from his bat in his 55 but then he was bowled by Starc. On this occasion Vince was blameless since he was the recipient of the ball of the series, which cut from leg to off as if delivered by Derek Underwood in his pomp but 25 mph quicker. There was absolutely no disgrace in this dismissal.

A fierce, winter wind blew all day, which had players digging into their cases for sweaters. The candlelight carols down by the river Swan were cancelled in the morning – there was certainly no chance of any candles staying alight and there were more serious concerns that the stage and the lights would be blown away.To the despair of England fans at the Waca the disruption to the cricket was surprisingly brief. Sometimes there was sun, sometimes showers and always that wind howling across the ground. Amid the gales Australia inexorably tightened their grip, declaring with a lead of 259 and then making clinical incursions into England’s batting like an expert surgeon. At the close the tourists were 132 for four, still 127 runs away from making Australia bat again.Already England’s experienced men were back in the pavilion with a pair of 14s, no more use to the team than they are in pontoon. Alastair Cook’s tour, despite all the toil – but no sweat – in the nets has yet to take off, while Joe Root’s Australian expedition took another turn for the worst. Of the four batsmen dismissed Root’s departure was the most exasperating.Perhaps the strain on the captain is telling, with the expedition on the brink of failure. In his eagerness to assert himself at the crease Root chased the first delivery bowled by Nathan Lyon in the innings – the widest he has bowled in the series – and he was caught behind. He may, like Cook four years ago, be appreciating how lonely a job his can be. Topics Share on Messenger England cricket team Thereafter Malan and Bairstow dug in impressively with few frills except when Malan took four authentic boundaries off an over from Pat Cummins. Despite the cracks appearing down the middle of the pitch – as is usually the case here – fluent strokeplay was still possible on this surface.Play was abandoned soon after 5pm when the heaviest shower blew over, with England hoping for more of the same on the fifth day.Oddly the fourth one began better than England could have hoped given that Australia started it on 549 for four. Mitchell Marsh was lbw to Jimmy Anderson’s second delivery; then Smith, after a cunning review, departed in the same way as England’s premier bowler conjured a little movement from the Prindiville stand end. The titans of Saturday were mortal after all.Then Starc was stranded mid-pitch and Australia had lost three wickets for 12 runs. They were still 158 runs ahead but the complexion of the game had changed. Perhaps the old ball was reversing a little, which might justify not taking a new ball for an over or two. But it is hard to explain why Root and, more pertinently, his two senior bowlers declined to take it once Tim Paine and Cummins had begun to settle.So here was a case of England’s two senior new-ball bowlers not wishing to bowl with a new ball. There was a risk attached: the hard and shiny new ball can fly. But there was also a potential reward: the new ball against lower-order batsmen might produce the three quick wickets required to keep Australia’s lead under 200. The old guard was not prepared to take that risk. Sometimes old-pro canniness can give way to negativity; sometimes Root may be required to challenge the wisdom of the seasoned duopoly.So the Australian pair were able to add 93 as England, with the soft old ball in their hands, settled for damage limitation rather than the pursuit of wickets. The decision to persist with the old ball was a declaration of non-intent.After lunch Cummins became the third lbw victim for Anderson and then Lyon holed out to his third ball. Anderson remains England’s best bowler but this must have been the least satisfying four-wicket haul of his career. From the depths of 561 for seven Australia were able to declare on 662 for nine.

WNBA finals: Connecticut Sun force Game 5 with 90-86 win over Mystics

first_img Support The Guardian The title will be decided Thursday night in Washington with a first-time champion crowned. Thomas fell just short of the first triple-double in finals history.“We’re having the time of our life right now,” Sun coach Curt Miller said. “You dream as a little kid being in a deciding final game, a Game 7 or 5 to win a world championship. If you grew up a basketball fan, these are the moments you dreamed of.”Jonquel Jones had 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Sun, who had five players score in double figures.Connecticut blew a 16-point halftime lead as Washington used a huge third quarter to tie the game at 68. The Mystics kept it going to start the fourth, opening up a five-point lead. With their season on the line, the Sun responded.

Jasmine Thomas hit a three-pointer to put the Sun ahead 84-81. The lead was short-lived as Emma Meesseman answered with a three from the wing to tie the game again.Shekinna Stricklen, the league’s three-point champion at the All-Star Game, then shook off a defender before making another three to give the Sun an 87-84 advantage with 2:22 left. Natasha Cloud made a layup a few seconds later to get the Mystics within one. But Washington didn’t score again.Aerial Powers, who led Washington with 15 points, missed an open three-pointer in the corner with 27.5 seconds left that would have put the Mystics ahead.“Both teams were making big shots. We’d make a three, they’d answer with a three,” Miller said. “Ultimately we made a few more plays down the stretch. We got to the line down the stretch. Alyssa Thomas was best foul shooter in the game.”Connecticut got the rebound and Jasmine Thomas sank two free throws with 18.4 seconds left to make it a three-point game.After a timeout, Cloud drove to the basket but missed the shot and Alyssa Thomas corralled the rebound and hit the first of two free throws to seal the win.“I think we also had a few open shots we didn’t hit,” Powers said. “The ball movement wasn’t there, we didn’t hit shots. We need to be better come Thursday.”Elena Delle Donne, who left Game 2 with back spasms that an MRI later showed resulted from a herniated disk, was able to play more Tuesday night than in Game 3, when she was limited to 26 minutes. The league MVP had 11 points and five rebounds while playing 30 minutes.“I was a little looser today, so felt better. Hopefully continue to progress and feel better Thursday,” Delle Donne said. “They were playing more aggressive defensively. They weren’t letting us sit outside and shoot threes.”Having a chance to win the title at home on Thursday gave the Mystics some confidence.“That’s what we worked for this whole season,” Delle Donne said. “Can’t rely on being home to get it done. The way we came out and started the game dug us into a huge hole. They are a great team, and you give that type of lead to them, makes thing difficult.”First quarter predictorGame 4 held to form for this series, with the team that led after the first quarter coming away with the victory. The Sun outscored Washington by 15 on Tuesday night.The Mystics won the opening period of Game 1 by 13 points. Connecticut was ahead by 12 in the second game and Washington by 15 in Game 3. Each time, the team that was trailing in the period had 17 points.Foul shooting disparityConnecticut took 26 free throws to only 13 by Washington, with Delle Donne and Meesseman only combining for three attempts. Mystics coach Mike Thibault wasn’t sure why that was the case, especially when the Sun only committed one foul in the final quarter.“I’m struggling how to understand how Connecticut played with one foul in the fourth quarter,” he said. “Free throw attempts was 26-13. If we could have gone to the line a couple times, we could have slowed the momentum down a little bit.”Up nextGame 5 is Thursday night in Washington. Thank you for your feedback.

Fires floods and ferocious winds on top weather list in 2017

first_imgEnvironment Canada’s chief climatologist has compiled his top weather stories of 2017 — a year which David Phillips says was marked by unusually long periods of conditions that just wouldn’t go away. His Top 10:1.British Columbia’s Longest and Most Destructive Wildfire Season: The province was forced to declare its longest-standing provincial emergency when 1,265 fires scorched 12,000 square kilometres of forest, bush and grassland. About 50,000 people were forced to flee. The fires came during the province’s driest summer on record.2.Dry and Hot in the West: Summer temperatures broke records — Medicine Hat, Alta., recorded 34 days of plus-30 C weather — and it was so dry that Regina was 22 per cent under its previous record for low rainfall. On the bright side, no rain meant no mosquitoes.3. Spring Flooding in Quebec and Ontario: Montreal and Ottawa had their wettest springs in history. In May, rivers from Gananoque to Gaspesie flooded past historic maximum flows. More than 5,000 residences were swamped and 550 roads were washed out by floods or covered by landslides. Two people were swept away by the swollen Sainte-Anne River in the Gaspé region.4.British Columbia’s Cold and Snowy Winter: The West Coast was shivering through its second coldest winter in the last 25 years. It was distinguished by the duration, frequency and length of snowfall and snow on the ground. Skiing was good, but public golf courses were closed for up to two months — the first such closures in 20 years.5.Another Windsor flood: Two Storms of the Century in a Year. Less than a year after a record $153- million flood hit the Ontario city and surrounding area, another arrived on Aug. 28. In less than 48 hours, 222 mm of rain fell in southwest Windsor. Nearby LaSalle received 125 mm that day and another 160 mm the next. Curbs were piled high with waterlogged carpets, spoiled furniture, broken appliances and sodden belongings.6.Central Canada’s Missing Summer: Total rainfall from April to July around the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River was the highest in 70 years. Cool temperatures, overcast skies and frequent spring showers hung around all summer. Farmers were weeks behind schedule. Lake Ontario reached an unprecedented 75.9 metres above sea level in May. The Toronto Islands were off limits from mid-May to the end of July.7.A New Storm of the Century: A storm struck Ontario on March 13 before moving into Quebec and Atlantic Canada. It led to a multi-car pileup, in whiteout conditions, involving 15 transport trucks and other vehicles on Highway 401. The highway was closed as twisted metal littered the road and a toxic acid spill polluted the air. The storm then dumped 50 centimetres of snow at more than half the reporting stations in southern Quebec. No previous storm eclipsed so many snowfall records. The storm killed five people.8.Summer in September: The first day of fall marked Central Canada’s warmest weather. From Sept. 22 to Sept. 27, more than 1,000 heat records tumbled as humidex values shot up close to or above 40, prompting a week-long stretch of heat warnings. Southern Quebec had its warmest October since at least 1870.9.Newfoundland’s Brier Blast: Hurricane-force winds ravaged Newfoundland on March 1 and 2, but it was the “Brier blast” on March 11 that saw winds on the Avalon Peninsula peak at Bay de Verde at a hurricane-force of 190 km/h. Some 70,000 residents and visitors were left in the dark, trees were uprooted, traffic lights and power lines toppled, and the second-storey of some homes ripped off.10.New Brunswick’s Glaze Storm: A long-lasting mix of rain, snow, freezing rain and ice pellets over Quebec and Atlantic Canada in late January killed two and injured dozens. Nearly 300,000 residents were left in the dark and cold after power lines snapped. Some communities were without electricity for up to 12 days. Canadian troops were deployed to help with the ongoing emergency response.last_img read more

At UN small island nations press for urgent action on climate change

Top officials from small island developing States (SIDS) issued calls from the General Assembly podium today for enhanced measures to be taken on combating climate change, especially in speeding up the availability of funds for poorer nations to adapt to global warming.At last December’s climate change conference in Copenhagen, industrialized countries pledged $30 billion of fast-track funding for developing countries through 2012, with that figure set to climb to $100 billion annually by 2020.But the “much-publicized ‘fast-track’ funding,” Samoan Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, told the Assembly’s high-level debate today, “has become a ‘best kept secret.’”He stressed that “information on how much of the pledges have been honoured, disbursed and to whom, has been scarce. When available, the information is vague and seems bereft of coordination.”With the form, content and completion of a new global treaty on climate change remaining uncertain, Mr. Malielegaoi stressed that making the promised funds available is a “moral imperative.”The next conference of parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is set to be held in November in Cancun, Mexico.“We cannot afford to leave Cancun empty-handed,” the Samoan official stressed. “Concrete results must be achieved not only to give our people confidence that substantive responses are being reached to protect against climate change and at the same time strengthen our belief that our United Nations can deliver a legally-binding agreement.”Also urging the provision of the promised fast-track funding “without delay” was Fijian Prime Minister, Commodore Josaia V. Bainimarama.“The threat of climate change, particularly sea level rise, continues to hang over us all,” he told the Assembly today.“While some of us are more vulnerable than others, we must work in concert as a responsible international family to mitigate the adverse effects of this global phenomenon.Also calling for resources to be made available for developing nations as quickly as possible, Foreign Minister Jean-Paul Adam of the Seychelles voiced concern that a bulk of the funding for adaptation is being channelled through traditional outlets.“This means that most SIDS will miss out on funds because of our middle income status,” he pointed out.Addressing climate change, Mr. Adam, stressed, requires mechanisms on funding that do not rely on “business as usual.”Vanuatu’s Prime Minister Edward Natapei told world leaders gathered at UN Headquarters that “the degree of urgency for real commitments to emissions reduction must be commensurate with the science and associated impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable communities.”Action must be taken, not with concerns over short-term impacts on industrial growth or political tenure, but with the longer-term view of building sustainable economies and societies around the world, he argued.The necessity of reaching a climate change agreement “cannot be over-emphasized,” said Peter Shanel Agovaka, Foreign Minister of the Solomon Islands.He said that his country supports the call issued by SIDS to reduce temperature rise below 1.5 degrees Celsius and to lower greenhouse gas concentration to well below 350 parts per billion.The need for global cooperation to solve the issue of climate change was among the themes of the address by Vice-President Mohamed Waheed of the Maldives.His country, he said, “believes that it is time to let go of the mistrust and blame that has plagued the UNFCCC process.”Dr. Waheed welcomed India’s recent initiative to voluntarily curb its emissions and its commitment to promote green energy “without waiting for others to follow suit.”Climate change, he stressed, threatens the country’s very existence, and the Maldives has invested in water and sanitation projects, as well as coastal defences. It is also creating voluntary resettlement programmes to move people to more viable islands within the country.“It is unquestionable that our actions alone cannot save us. The global community must act,” the Vice- President underlined, in a sentiment echoed by Winston Baldwin Spencer, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda.The Caribbean nation, Mr. Spencer said, has pledged to curb its “already minuscule” greenhouse gas emissions by 25 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020, within the range specified by the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).“However, much remains to be done and we are painfully aware that we cannot do it alone,” he said.He urged all countries – both developed and developing – to announce “real, meaningful emission reductions targets, so that we can move this seemingly endless debate forward and reach a comprehensive, binding agreement in the very near future.” 27 September 2010Top officials from the Pacific Island nations issued calls from the General Assembly podium today for enhanced measures to be taken on combating climate change, especially in speeding up the availability of funds for poorer nations to adapt to global warming. read more

What Reddit Can Tell Us About NBA Fan Bases

DETr/DetroitPistons10,69510,0720.94 SASr/NBASpurs25,67327,1271.06 MILr/MkeBucks20,86917,4300.84 SACr/kings12,84612,8361.00 The NBA’s most talkative fansNumber of subscribers to team subreddits and comments made by users with that team’s flair on r/nba, October 2018 NYKr/NYKnicks35,48224,2940.68 teamsubredditSubscribersTotalPer subscriber BRKr/GoNets9,4499,4301.00 Comments from flaired fans on r/nba The most-upvoted post of all time on /r/nba is the announcement that LeBron would sign with the Lakers. Ever since then, the L.A. fan base, which is one of the largest on /r/nba, has been more active than usual. Meanwhile, comment activity among Cleveland fans is the lowest it’s been since the first post-LeBron era.PelicansThe New Orleans Pelicans exist in one of the smallest media markets in the NBA. Their team-specific subreddit, /r/NOLAPelicans, has the second fewest subscribers among all 30 teams (/r/memphisgrizzlies has the fewest). And yet, their fan base is in the middle of one of its most active periods. For every subscriber to /r/NOLAPelicans, Pelicans’ fans made more than 1.2 comments on /r/nba in the month of October, the highest mark of any fan base. CLEr/clevelandcavs36,85025,8610.70 MEMr/memphisgrizzlies5,5204,8380.88 PHIr/sixers44,36832,8240.74 If Anthony Davis decides to stay in New Orleans beyond his current contract, it’s likely to be in part because of the small but passionate fan base that supports him.It’s worth pointing out that Golden State Warriors fans rank dead last in comments per subscriber. But this is probably misleading because of the inflated subscriber count of /r/warriors. During the summer of 2017, those who downloaded Reddit’s mobile app were subscribed to the Warriors subreddit by default if they selected the NBA as a category they were interested in. This resulted in a spike in subscribers to /r/warriors and created a gap between them and the rest of the league.Check out our latest NBA predictions. GSWr/warriors113,33148,3150.43 NOPr/NOLAPelicans6,5958,1311.23 MINr/timberwolves21,57818,5440.86 ORLr/OrlandoMagic10,1866,7990.67 WASr/washingtonwizards17,92613,1780.74 PHOr/suns14,30213,8720.97 Subscribers were counted on Oct. 9. Subscribers to r/warriors are likely inflated because of a feature of Reddit’s mobile app.Source: Reddit DALr/Mavericks19,26417,8580.93 PORr/ripcity15,95517,1391.07 ATLr/AtlantaHawks12,1108,1310.67 UTAr/UtahJazz16,15717,7891.10 LACr/LAClippers10,4188,2500.79 But the 76ers also have two players on their roster who are a lightning rod for discussion on /r/nba. Hardly a day goes by without a post on the latest Joel Embiid sound bite or Markelle Fultz lowlight (when he’s not injured or involved in trade rumors). So long as those two players are on the team, Philly fans will have plenty to talk about.Because the data is available only through Oct. 31, 2018, the chart does not capture the reaction to Philadelphia’s trade for Butler earlier this month. But given that the replays of Butler’s game winners against Charlotte and Brooklyn are two of the most-upvoted, or highest-rated, posts of the season thus far on r/nba, 76ers fans are likely just warming up.Cavs and LakersWhen LeBron James returned to Cleveland in the summer of 2014, Cavaliers fans instantly became more active on /r/nba. With their teammate squabbles, midseason trades and postseason heroics, the Cavaliers were a constant topic of conversation from 2014 to 2018 — and never more so than during their championship run in 2016.But when James left to join the Lakers this offseason, he took the conversation with him. We charted the comment activity for fans of the Lakers and Cavaliers together, without indexing the shares so that we could make a cross-team comparison. HOUr/rockets35,09023,2370.66 CHAr/CharlotteHornets7,9188,4021.06 LALr/lakers84,13782,1270.98 CHIr/chicagobulls41,93521,2480.51 TORr/torontoraptors52,28958,9351.13 OKCr/Thunder23,64624,8981.05 MIAr/heat15,17016,9331.12 DENr/denvernuggets10,39411,0071.06 BOSr/bostonceltics61,60148,6650.79 The highs and lows of being an NBA fan aren’t necessarily dependent on wins and losses. When your team has been bad for a while, small victories — like upsetting a better team during the regular season — can be your version of winning a championship. Conversely, when your team is a finals contender every year, some setbacks can feel like signs of the end times.One way to quantify the ups and downs of a fan base is to look at how active they are: After all, the only fans worse than angry fans are uninterested ones. To help with that, we have Reddit — the discussion-based website with more than a million communities, or subreddits, each devoted to a different subject.Over the years, basketball fans have flocked to /r/nba, the site’s professional basketball subreddit, to discuss games in progress, seek meaning in the latest trade rumors and debate the legality of surrounding Steph Curry in a moving ring of teammates with locked arms. With more than 11 million comments made from January through October, /r/nba is the third most active subreddit this year, trailing only /r/AskReddit and /r/politics. It’s also far and away the busiest sports subreddit: Through October, /r/nba had received 3 million more comments this year than /r/soccer, the next most active sports-related subreddit.One noteworthy aspect of /r/nba is that users have the option to publicly display their allegiance to teams through “flairs,” which appear as icons next to usernames in posts and comments. Although flairs are optional, roughly 80 percent of comments made on /r/nba since October 2011 have been made by users with those icons.Inspired by Reddit user 808x’s analysis of team loyalty, we used those flairs on comments made since Oct. 1, 2011,1Although the /r/nba subreddit has existed since 2008, the 2011-12 season was the first year with sustained and regular comment activity from all 30 fan bases. to chart the activity of each NBA fan base. To normalize for the growth of Reddit over time, we calculated the total number of daily comments made by a fan base divided by the total number of daily comments made by all users (flaired or not). In addition, we used a 30-day rolling average2To smooth out the daily volatility of comments. indexed to each team’s highest point in order to make the trends for teams in small markets as clear as the trends for teams in large markets. Indexing allows us to show all 30 teams at once, but cross-team comparisons must be made with caution because the y-axis for each team’s chart is unique.In other words, each fan base’s activity is relative only to itself. We can infer from the data that 76ers fans on Reddit were more active earlier this year than they had ever been, but we shouldn’t infer that 76ers fans were more active than Warriors fans. INDr/pacers9,3587,1020.76 The spikes on the charts often correlate with playoff runs, blockbuster trades or better-than-expected starts to a season. For example, the fever of Atlanta Hawks fandom peaked during their 60-win season in 2014-15, which culminated in an appearance in the Eastern Conference finals. The spike on Minnesota’s chart lines up with the summer the Timberwolves traded for Jimmy Butler. Meanwhile, Sacramento Kings fans were most active during the start of the 2014-15 NBA season, when the team jumped out to a 9-5 record (they finished 29-53).To understand the landscape of fandom on /r/nba, it’s worth examining in detail the comment activity for fans of the Philadelphia 76ers, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans.76ersNo team has had a more linear increase in comment activity over the past seven years than the Philadelphia 76ers. Sixers fans have grown more active on /r/nba each year, in part because their team has gotten incrementally better each year. read more

Greek PM not tired and looking to leave

first_imgGreek government officials rebuffed reports that Greek Prime Minister, Costas Karamanlis, is ‘tired’ and ready to abandon the world of politics if he is defeated at the next elections due in 2010.The claims were contained in the Greek newspaper Real News following a meeting between the Greek Prime Minister and Nikos Hatzinikolaou, publisher of the newspaper.Party officials rallied behind Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and extolled his virtues.“The prime minister is too young to be considering retirement,” said government spokesman Evangelos Antonaros. Antonaras spoke of “fanciful scenarios” but did not deny that a meeting had taken place between the premier and the publisher of Real News, in which the report appeared.The report cites Karamanlis as saying: “I have been president of New Democracy for more than 12 years.” “I am tired. I will work hard until the elections, put all my energy into the fight to tackle the financial crisis, but if despite all this we lose the elections, I will go” he added.Leading Ne Democracy figures believed to be the likeliest contenders for Karamanlis’s post, threw their full support behind the Greek Prime Minister. “Costas Karamanlis is the guarantor of the unity of this great party,” said Health Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos. “I have never heard the premier declare that he is tired and wants to step down,” said conservative deputy Kyriakos Mitsotakis. “The prime minister is present, active and striving for the good of our country,” Deputy Education Minister Andreas Lykourentzos commented. Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou seized the chance to capitalize on the latest crisis within the ruling party, remarking in a speech before his party’s political council that “whoever is tired should go home.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

DEC Continues Working With Kenai On Beach CleanUp Efforts

first_imgNancy Sonafrank with the Division of Water: “The high bacteria had been found during previous fisheries and we think it’s mostly related to nearby seagulls that are feeding off of the fish as well.”  Fish waste can also be deposited at other Kenai Peninsula transfer facilities, including those in Cooper Landing, Kasilof, and Ninilchik, but in smaller quantities; all fish waste must be bagged in plastic trash bags with a limit of two bags dropped off per day. For the time being, the DEC reminds individuals fishing on the beaches to dispose of their fish waste properly, and to thoroughly clean their catches before consuming them. This comes after the DEC announced that water quality samples collected on Kenai Beaches, on July 3 and 13, contained levels above Alaska’s enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria limit for recreation and harvesting for consumption of raw fish and shellfish. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has been joining efforts with the City of Kenai to help clean up fish waste left behind by dipnetters and beach users. The Central Peninsula Landfill located at Mile 98.5 Sterling Highway 2.5 miles south of Soldotna accepts fish waste free of charge from 8am to 5:45pm seven days a week. Sonafrank: “Seagulls hang around to collect fish waste discarded on the beaches and then transfer the fecal bacteria into to the waters and on the beaches.” The DEC will conduct additional testing to determine if their efforts to keep these beaches cleaner have worked until the end of the summer. According to Sonafrank, most, if not all, the bacteria found during the testing is from seagulls.last_img read more

Lenovo Smart Clock tasks Google Assistant with waking you up at CES

first_img Tags See it See It 2:22 CES Products Amazon Google Lenovo Share your voice Wake up timeWhile the Lenovo Smart Clock does lack some of the features of smart displays, the clock functionality is more robust. It will suggest alarms based on your first meeting time the next day. You can quickly see upcoming alarms and times. The clock is the only option for an ambient screen (smart displays can scroll through pictures or artwork), but you can pick from a variety of clock faces. 30 minutes before an alarm, the screen on the Smart Clock will gradually begin to brighten in an attempt to gently wake you up. Once the alarm does go off, you can snooze it or dismiss it with a voice command. You’ll see buttons with both options on the screen, or you can whack it. Whichever option you pick, once you dismiss your alarm, Google Assistant can start your “Good Morning” routine. Routines are customizable grouped commands within Google Assistant that allow you to control multiple smart home devices at once. They can also play music, a podcast or the news. You can pick which words trigger routines and they should work with any device you own that has Google Assistant equipped.Triggering a routine with an alarm is new. Google announced the feature late last year, and it’s expected to roll out to all Google Assistant devices by the time the Smart Clock launches this spring. So while the gradually brightening clock face, the suggested alarm times and the routine triggers are cool new features that should roll out with the Lenovo Smart Clock, expect to see them all on Google’s smart displays like the Google Home Hub and the Lenovo Smart Display around the same time.Trimmed size, trimmed pricelenovo-smart-clock-product-photos-8The Smart Clock shows simple messages that it deems important to your day.  Tyler Lizenby/CNET The Lenovo Smart Clock is smaller than every smart display we’ve tested — the Lenovo Smart Display comes with an 8- or 10-inch screen and the Google Home Hub has a 7-inch screen. It also doesn’t have as many features, but it’s petite and cute with a simple fabric base, volume buttons and a USB port on the back for charging your phone while you sleep.It’s also more affordable. The Lenovo Smart Clock will go on sale this spring for $80, as opposed to $250 for the 10-inch Lenovo Smart Display and $150 for the Google Home Hub. Given that the Google Home Mini smart speaker costs $50, it looks properly priced as a middle child with a screen that’s useful, but not as robust as a smart display. I don’t think the Lenovo Smart Clock will be as broadly appealing as a smart display, especially since the Google Home Hub already fits nicely on a night stand and in the kitchen. That said, if you want a smart alarm clock that’s great at waking you up and still allows you to vent your morning frustration, it could be pretty compelling.  Preview • Google Home Hub joins the fight to put a screen on your countertop $79 85 Photos Walmart See It $99 Now playing: Watch this: Best Buy Comments Lenovo Smart Clock uses Google Assistant to wake you… $99 A category of its ownRepresentatives from Lenovo and Google were both clear that they view this as a new category of device, separate from a full-sized smart display. Indeed, while I thought at first that it would just be a shrunk-down version of Lenovo’s own Smart Display, and while it’s similarly built with Android Things — Google’s trimmed down operating system meant for smart home gadgets — the Smart Clock’s screen is much more streamlined, designed specifically to fit on your nightstand. Unlike smart displays, the Smart Clock won’t be able to play videos, display pictures, show you the steps of a recipe or pull up a smart home control screen. It also doesn’t have a camera. By contrast, Amazon has a similar smart alarm clock with a display called the Echo Spot, but it does have a camera and is much more like a miniaturized version of a smart display. center_img Google Nest Hub See It Review • Google Nest Hub review: Still the smart display to beat CES 2019 CNET Smart Home How To • Google Assistant, Android Q, Google Nest Hub Max: Google’s big plans for the rest of the year 7 Photos CES 2019: Every story so far: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.

Tyler Lizenby/CNET By far my favorite feature of the Lenovo Smart Clock is a touch sensor that allows you to hit it when you’re annoyed that it’s time to wake up. Whack the top once to snooze your alarm or twice to turn it off entirely. Even better, when you do finally dismiss the alarm, it can trigger your “Good Morning” routine through Google Assistant and turn on your lights, tell you about your day and play the news.I got the chance to play with the petite smart clock at CES, and thanks to Google Assistant, it doesn’t lack for other features. In fact, it will respond to all of the same voice commands you can give to a Google Home or a Google Home Mini. You can play music, search the web, control smart home devices and more just by asking. You can even group your Smart Clock with other Google smart speakers for synced playback. The Smart Clock is one of several high-profile announcements Google is making at CES 2019. Read more: The Lenovo Smart Clock reviewedThe smart clock has a 4-inch touchscreen, which is tailored to show info relevant to your day.

Watch Assam mob thrashed Muslim man for selling beef forced him to

first_imgBeef eating is not allowed in Assam. The state has a complex law on cattle slaughter. According to the Assam Cattle Preservation Act of 1950, the slaughter of cattle over 14 years of age or those incapable of work or for use in breeding is allowed. The law stipulates that such cattle will be given a “fit-for-slaughter certificate” by a doctor of the state husbandry and animal welfare department. Meanwhile, the law in Assam does not distinguish between buffaloes and cows or bulls.NOTE: International Business Times cannot verify the authenticity of the video. Shaukat Ali was abused and thrashed for allegedly selling beef in Assam’s Biswanath district.TwitterIn a shocking incident, a 68-year-old Muslim man was abused and thrashed for allegedly selling beef in Assam’s Biswanath district on Sunday, April 7. In a video doing rounds on the internet, the man with a grey beard, identified as Shaukat Ali, can be seen kneeling in deep slush surrounded by an irate mob.The Muslim man was beaten and forced to eat pork. In the clip, the mob is heard asking the man, “Why were you selling beef? Do you have the license to do so?” The crowd proceeded to demand that Shaukat Ali declare his nationality, asking if he is Bangladeshi or if he has a National Register of Citizen (NRC) certificate.Mob thrashes man in Biswanath Chariali; forced to eat Pork.Hope @assampolicetake strict action against this culprits. @sarbanandsonwal govt should stop this..#Assam#NYAY pic.twitter.com/naUnjF7yzu— Hafeez Ur Rahman?? (@Haafeez_ur) April 8, 2019In a bid to weed out illegal citizens, Assam is implementing the NRC. The final draft of the NRC, published last year, saw the names of 40.07 lakh people of the total 3,29,91,384 applicants missing in the list. The BJP has promised to implement the NRC in a phased manner in other parts of the country.Confirming the incident, Rakesh Roushan, Superintendent of Police (Biswanath), said one of Shaukat’s relatives has filed an FIR and an investigation is underway. The Assam Police are on the lookout for the men seen in the viral video. However, the police have said it was “not a matter of communal tension”. “The miscreants misbehaved with not only him but also another person of a different community,” the SP stated.Ali has sustained multiple injuries and is being treated in a local hospital in Assam. For the last 35 years, Ali has been running an eatery in the area, according to the local police.Asaduddin Owaisi slams incidentAll India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MP Asaduddin Owaisi have slammed the incident on Twitter, writing “I know many people who feel they’re desensitized because of the number of lynchings in the last five years. I am not, each video infuriates me and saddens me.” Owaisi further added, “It’s irrelevant that beef is legal in Assam, lynching an innocent old man is illegal in every part of India.”last_img read more

Study shows graphene able to withstand a speeding bullet

first_img More information: Dynamic mechanical behavior of multilayer graphene via supersonic projectile penetration, Science 28 November 2014: Vol. 346 no. 6213 pp. 1092-1096. DOI: 10.1126/science.1258544ABSTRACTMultilayer graphene is an exceptional anisotropic material due to its layered structure composed of two-dimensional carbon lattices. Although the intrinsic mechanical properties of graphene have been investigated at quasi-static conditions, its behavior under extreme dynamic conditions has not yet been studied. We report the high–strain-rate behavior of multilayer graphene over a range of thicknesses from 10 to 100 nanometers by using miniaturized ballistic tests. Tensile stretching of the membrane into a cone shape is followed by initiation of radial cracks that approximately follow crystallographic directions and extend outward well beyond the impact area. The specific penetration energy for multilayer graphene is ~10 times more than literature values for macroscopic steel sheets at 600 meters per second.Press release Journal information: Science PausePlay% buffered00:0000:00UnmuteMuteDisable captionsEnable captionsSettingsCaptionsDisabledQuality0SpeedNormalCaptionsGo back to previous menuQualityGo back to previous menuSpeedGo back to previous menu0.5×0.75×Normal1.25×1.5×1.75×2×Exit fullscreenEnter fullscreen A microbullet traveling at supersonic speed is captured in this composite of three timed images as it makes its way toward a suspended sheet of multilayer graphene.

Credit: Thomas Research Group/Rice University Citation: Study shows graphene able to withstand a speeding bullet (2014, November 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-11-graphene-bullet.html Scientists know that graphene sheets are tough, due to their dense one atom think structure. Until now, however, no one has tested the material for use as armor—to protect against being struck by a speeding bullet. In this new effort, the researchers did just that, albeit at a much smaller scale.Scientists have yet to figure out a way to mass produce sheets of graphene in large sizes, thus, for this experiment, the researchers confined their efforts to a very small scale. Their firing range consisted of using a laser to vaporize gold filaments to serve as the gunpowder. The explosion pushed micron-sized glass bullets at graphene targets—10 to 100 sheets placed together to form a mat—at speeds up to 6,700 mph (approximately a third of the speed of a real bullet fired from an M16 machine gun). Electron microscopy was used to measure how well the graphene sheets absorbed the impact.The researchers found that the sheets were able to dissipate the energy of the bullet by stretching backwards—sort of like when someone jumps on a trampoline. Tiny cracks also formed radially, using up more of the energy. In analyzing the results, the researchers found that the graphene was able to perform twice as well as Kevlar, the material currently used in bullet-proof vests, and up to ten times as well as steel. Put another way, the graphene was able to absorb aproximately 0.92MJ/kg of projectile energy, while steel can typically absorb 0.08MJ/kg when both are being tested at similar speeds. Play Jae-Hwang Lee briefly shows how the micro-ballistic experiment was performed using the advanced laser induced projectile impact test (a-LIPIT) apparatus. Credit: Rice University The ability of graphene to dissipate energy, the team explains, is due to a high degree of stiffness combined with low density, which means that energy can move through it very quickly, allowing for the dissipation of energy from something traveling as fast as a bullet. The researchers efforts show that graphene could very well mean a better bullet-proof vest, if a way could be found to produce it in enough quantity and at a low enough price. © 2014 Tech Xplore (Phys.org)—A team of researchers working at Rice University in the U.S. has demonstrated that graphene is better able to withstand the impact of a bullet than either steel or Kevlar. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes how they set up a miniature firing range in their laboratory and used it to test the strength of graphene sheets.

Pa. got a little more snow than it bargained for over the course of the holiday Erie was hit with a whopping 53 inches more than four feet of snow from Christmas Day into the early morning hours of Dec 26 according to the National Weather Service’s Cleveland branch Nineteen inches feel between midnight and 6 am on Tuesday alone according to the NWS Another 245 inches fell by Tuesday night bringing the total since Dec 23 to more than 629 inches the Associated Press reports The storm has broken a few snowfall records including two-day snowfall for the entire state of Pennsylvania and 13-day snowfall for the Erie area according to the NWS That’s no small feat since Erie typically gets plenty of winter weather thanks to its proximity to the Great Lakes In addition to cementing its place in the record books Erie’s Christmas snowstorm has made for some dramatic photos Here’s what it looks like in the record-breaking winter wonderland: Write to Jamie Ducharme at jamieducharme@timecomThe US House of Representative’s one-man physics caucus is joining its science committee—with the goal of restoring science to its rightful place in legislative discourse Representative Bill Foster (D–IL) holds a physics PhD from Harvard University and spent 22 years as a particle accelerator designer at Fermilab a Department of Energy national laboratory in Batavia Illinois When he arrived in the House in 2008 he was one of three members with a PhD in physics But the two others—representatives Vern Ehlers (R–MI) and Rush Holt (D–NJ)—have since retired leaving Foster as the sole remaining member of that troika (There are no doctoral-level physicists in the Senate) Foster didn’t join the House’s science committee as a rookie instead focusing his legislative energies on reforming the nation’s tattered banking system after the 2008 financial meltdown He also feared being pigeonholed as “the science guy” But the world has changed he tells ScienceInsider today in a phone interview after revealing he has been chosen to fill one of three Democratic vacancies on the science panel “Congress is now seized in gridlock and that made the Financial Services Committee a smaller drain on my time and my staff’s time” he explains “And secondly science has come under attack Support for science and even acknowledging that scientific thought is a useful way to operate our government has come under increasing partisan attack And the [House] science committee is one important platform to have that discussion about the proper role of science in government and in the economy” That committee led by Representative Lamar Smith (R–TX) has become ground zero for Republican attacks on the National Science Foundation and other research agencies Foster has watched those battles from afar but he now feels a pressing need to defend his former profession “There are times when the science committee works in a bipartisan manner and there are times when that bipartisanship is challenged” says Foster who as a teenager launched what became a very successful theater lighting business “It’s my hope that being a consistent calm and rational voice for science will increase the amount of time that we spend discussing facts rather than offering partisan talking points” Foster says other House members regularly seek him out to discuss technical aspects of issues facing Congress and that party affiliation is no barrier “I’ve had very good discussions with people like [Representative] Thomas Massie [R-KY]—I think he would not object to my calling him a right-wing tea party Republican—who is also an MIT [Massachusetts Institute of Technology] robotics graduate So we have had very good technical discussions on the right policies for NSA [National Security Agency] data collection” Despite the value of such one-on-one interactions he says that his time is limited “I used to say I represented 33% of the strategic reserve of physicists in Congress” But with Ehlers retiring in 2010 and Holt stepping down last month (and now CEO of AAAS which publishes ScienceInsider) Foster is “now unfortunately … 100% Rush’s departure has definitely put more of a scientific burden on me” Foster says he’s looking forward to joining the science committee where he says the minority party has a chance “to bring constructive amendments There are good conversations to be had on both sides of the aisle” he adds “But it’s important that those be fact-based” The types of stolen items can vary widely clearing the way for seven advertising signs that
