After victory in the opening fixture of their home leg, Puneri Paltan have endured a torrid run since, losing to Patna Pirates by 22 points before blowing a seven-point lead in under two minutes against Tamil Thalaivas to settle for a tie. They find themselves 11 points adrift the playoffs spots with five matches left in the campaign and hence need to beat Bengaluru Bulls to bolster their chances of finishing inside the top six.Raiders Manjeet, Pankaj Mohite and Nitin Tomar have all scored a Super 10 each in their first three home matches and coach Anup Kumar will be hoping that his raiding trio can continue their stellar form. The defence, outside of skipper Surjeet Singh, has been found wanting, with the likes of Girish Maruti Ernak, Hadi Tajik and Balasaheb Jadhav struggling to find consistency so far this season. If the defence can step up in the final five matches of the season, Puneri Paltan might just be able to sneak into the top six.Despite winning four of their last six matches, defending champions Bengaluru Bulls find themselves just six points clear of seventh-placed Jaipur Pink Panthers and thus are in the hunt for victories to solidify their place in the playoff spots. While reigning MVP Pawan Kumar Sehrawat has been at his brilliant best throughout the campaign and has already surpassed 200 raid points for the season, skipper Rohit Kumar has endured a poor campaign is currently the league’s 20h highest raid point scorer in Season 7.The defence, too, has a similar look, with Mahender Singh and his 44 tackle points leading the way for Bengaluru Bulls, while Amit Sheoran, the team’s second-most successful defender, has scored 33 tackle points. Coach Randhir Singh Sehrawat will be hoping for better outputs from the likes of Sheoran and Rohit over the remainder of the campaign, starting on Friday in Pune.
Twitter Share on Facebook Pinterest “Improbable as that may seem to those of us of an older generation, we do not reject that assertion as untrue,” wrote the commission in a 20-page document giving the reasons for the decision to dismiss the charge of improper conduct brought against the goalkeeper. Mr Hennessey explained that if the photo (which was taken on a night out arranged by Crystal Palace players to commemorate a victory over Grimsby Town, lest that historic event be forgotten) showed him with his right arm raised at a 45-degree angle and his left arm over his mouth, that was because he was trying to catch the attention of the person taking the shot, a French waiter named Jordan Bussolini. “Absolutely coincidental,” is how Hennessey described the sinister connotations that were later spelt out to him. The goalkeeper was upset to be accused of mimicking Hitler when all he was trying to do was put the hurry up on Bussolini (“It was not challenged that Mr Hennessey does have rather a loud voice and tends to be impatient,” found the commission.)After thorough consideration of the facts available, the commission felt obliged to conclude the charge against Mr Hennessey was unproven. “In fact, when cross-examined about this Mr Hennessey displayed a very considerable – one might even say lamentable – degree of ignorance about anything to do with Hitler, fascism and the Nazi regime. All we would say (at the risk of sounding patronising) is that Mr Hennessey would be well advised to familiarise himself with events which continue to have great significance to those who live in a free country.” It is worth noting that the commission did consider the possibility that Mr Hennessey might have knowingly made his salute in the hallowed name of b@nter but dismissed this theory on the grounds that: a) the player had not been on the sauce and; b) “no one else recalls Mr Hennessey playing the fool”. This was a reference to the gathering at the restaurant and not to displays on a pitch or anywhere else.LIVE ON BIG WEBSITEJoin Daniel Harris from 8pm BST for hot MBM coverage of Barcelona 3-1 Manchester United (agg: 4-1), while Paul Doyle will be on hand for Juventus 2-3 Ajax (agg: 3-4).QUOTE OF THE DAY“Nights like this can happen, when you don’t finish it off … in any case, we picked up a point and that allows us to keep clear of the teams behind us” – Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini somehow manages to remain cool after seeing his side register a record-breaking 47 shots on goal without scoring in the 0-0 draw with Empoli that may have jiggered their chances of qualifying for Big Cup.

Too often it has been our sad duty to report on outbreaks of malice, ineptitude and, yes, despicable drunken buffoonery that we always say we regret. But today we are happy to relay the tale of Wayne Hennessey, a very lucky man who managed to reach the age of 32 without ever being made aware of one of the most depressing episodes of human history. And we’re not talking about the time Kenny Jackett asked him to play against Gillingham away.In a development that gives hope to everyone who wishes to exist for more than three decades in a state of child-like innocence, it emerged that Mr Hennessey succeeded in becoming a fully-formed adult without becoming acquainted with the most basic details of the life and times of some moustachioed character called Adolf Hitler and his band, the Nazis. “Don’t mention the war” is an instruction that appears to have been followed to a tee by everyone Mr Hennessey has ever met in his whole life. Until last January, that is, when it was pointed out to the seasoned international that a gesture he was captured making in a team photograph bore an unfortunate resemblance to one popularised by the aforementioned Hitler.

Print Close zoom The opening of the internationally renowned “Maritime Cyprus 2013” Conference, at the “Evagoras Lanitis Centre” in Limassol, was a great success as it has been attended by distinguished speakers and more than 600 shipping personalities from around the world.The Conference, organised biennially in Cyprus, is organised this year for the thirteenth time since 1989. The Conference organisers are the Ministry of Communications and Works, the Department of Merchant Shipping, the Cyprus Shipping Chamber and the Cyprus Union of Shipowners. The first day´s Conference theme was “Remodelling Shipping”.Yesterday´s Conference opening has been preceded by an Opening Reception held yesterday (Sunday 06 October 2013) at the Presidential Palace where the “Cyprus Maritime Award 2013” was granted in recognition of the contribution of individuals or companies to the development of Cyprus Shipping. The “Cyprus Maritime Personality Award” was bestowed jointly to Mr Kyriacos Mouskas (posthumously), founder of Zella Shipping Co. Ltd. and to Mr Charalambos Mylonas, President of Transmed Shipping Ltd.Mr Alecos Michaelides, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Communications and Works first addressed yesterday´s Conference deliberations welcoming the participants, whereas the President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr Nicos Anastasiades delivered the Conference Opening Address. Addresses by distinguished personalities followed such as the Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization, Mr Koji Sekimizu and the Vice-President of the European Commission, Mr Siim Kallas, via a video recorded message. The address of Mr Jeffrey G. Lantz, Chairman of the Council of the International Maritime Organization who was unable to attend, was handed out to the participants.The President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr. Nikos Anastasiades, referred to the importance that the Government attributes to the competitive Cyprus shipping sector which has become even more important as it is called to face the challenges resulting from the unprecedented worldwide economic crisis. The discovery of hydrocarbons in the waters of the Republic, the President mentioned, will undoubtedly further enhance the prospects of Cyprus shipping. Moreover, the President of the Republic of Cyprus referred to the discussions underway before the House of Representatives relating to the Bill regulating the creation of the regime for the Under Secretaries, with particular mention to the appointment of the Under Secretary for Shipping as a matter of priority.Mr Sekimizu and Mr Kallas expressed interesting views on the Conference themes referring to the leading role that Cyprus shipping plays on an international level as well as within the European Union. The long standing presence at the “Maritime Cyprus Conference” of the International Maritime Organization and of the European Commission constitutes recognition of the participation of Cyprus in forming international and EU shipping policy.A discussion followed on the “Need for Adaptation”. Mr John C. Lyras, Vice-Chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping was the moderator for this discussion whereas the panelists were Mr Thomas Rehder, President-Elect of the European Community Shipowners´ Association and Mr Fotis Karamitsos Director and Deputy Director General (Acting) of the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission. Various views were expressed during this discussion on the need to adapt the regulatory framework and policies at an international level in order to meet the challenges arising from the continuously evolving shipping industry. During this discussion, Mr Fotis Karamitsos referred to the Turkish restrictive measures against Cyprus shipping in relation to which the European Commission maintains a solid position, indicating that the Turkish restrictive measures constitute an infringement of the EU-Turkey Customs Union Agreement and the Additional Protocol.Then, a discussion took place on “Financing Ships under the Current Economic Scene”. Mr George Mouskas, President of the Cyprus Union of Shipowners was the moderator for this discussion whereas the panel was comprised of Professor Elias Karakitsos, Chairman of Global Economic Research LLC, Mr Thanasis Martinos, Managing Director of Eastern Mediterranean Maritime Ltd and Mr Nick Roos, Head of Finance of Deutsche Bank. The discussion focused on the difficulties that the industry faces today in obtaining ship finance due to the reluctance of lenders caused by the unprecedentedly difficult economic situation worldwide. Concluding, the panelists expressed the view that in the near future shipping and the freight market will improve as it is anticipated that banks will have renewed appetite for shipping once more thereby making funding available for owners with a solid track record.The Minister of Communications and Works Mr Tasos Mitsopoulos inaugurated yesterday the “Maritime Services Exhibition”, forming part of the Conference, to which more than 30 exhibitors participate.

New Delhi: With the reported directions provided by the Pharmacy Council of India to use the prefix Doctor (Dr) while awarding degrees to Pharm D graduates, Indian Medical Association (IMA) strongly opposes any such moves.As this title reflects entitlement and identity, IMA is against all such shift from those who are trained in other streams of the health sector to venture into medical practice. According to IMA, such illegitimate conferment cannot become entitlements, just in case if an advocate or an engineer should be called doctor by an executive order. Such social anarchy only creates confusion in the minds of common man and the impact it has on the structure of a well organized society is clearly evident.

The roles and responsibilities of nurses, physiotherapists, optometrists and others in the field of healthcare are irreplaceable and are as per their entitlement. “Bridge courses and illegitimate conferment of the title of Dr are two faces of the same issue which defies the sole purpose of NEET. This year the cut-off marks in the NEET for government seats were 497 out of 700, wherein most of the students, settled for non-medical courses,” said Dr Santanu Sen, the national president of Indian Medical Association. Sen further said, “A pharmacist by any other name will remain a pharmacist. Indirect entitlement to practice of modern medicine on human beings by coloured exercise of power by bodies created for a limited purpose is unacceptable. Transgressions of entitlement are illegal and illegitimate.”
HALIFAX – The new supply ship for the Royal Canadian Navy will be able to go where it is tasked to go, says the company responsible for delivering the converted civilian vessel.Spencer Fraser, CEO of Federal Fleet Services, said Wednesday the Asterix, which will have a primarily civilian crew and captain, will serve where the navy determines it’s operationally needed.“If you look at the traditional employment of a replenishment ship it’s always held out of harm’s way and that’s one of your critical mission objectives is not to put it in harm’s way,” Fraser said in an interview.Still, Fraser said the vessel isn’t prevented from going where it’s needed.“There’s no area or ocean or sea at the moment where we cannot go with this vessel,” he said. “That’s an operational (navy) decision. Where we have an input is on the day-to-day safety at sea, but you would expect that of any captain of a vessel.”Fraser said the vessel will be based in Halifax for the next 10 years, creating about 100 direct jobs, and will be staffed by two, 36-member civilian crews.“Most of those crew are Nova Scotians,” he told a defence industry conference in Halifax.All of the engineers on board will be employees of Federal Fleet Services, Fraser said as will the deck personnel. The rest of the civilian crew will consist of cooks and stewards while the military would provide additional crew depending on operational needs.He said the vessel was completed at a cost of $650 million and would be delivered to the navy in Halifax before the end of the year, following a series of sea trials.It will then sail to the West Coast to take part in some naval exercises.Fraser said the company is pushing to build a second supply vessel, because the first of two replacement supply ships being built by Vancouver’s Seaspan isn’t expected to be delivered to the navy until 2020 at the earliest.Sister company Chantier Davie held a lavish ceremony to unveil the vessel at its shipyard in Levis, Que., in late July.The sole-sourced project was launched by the former Conservative government after the navy was forced to retire both of its 45-year-old resupply ships earlier than expected.The project was under a cloud earlier this spring after court documents revealed the RCMP suspected Vice-Admiral Mark Norman of having leaked cabinet secrets to keep the Liberal government from cancelling the project.No charges were laid against Norman, who was suspended from his position as the military’s second-highest officer in January. His lawyer has denied any wrongdoing.Davie has maintained that Norman was unfairly targeted for investigation.The Liberals green-lighted the project in the fall of 2015 after facing pressure from two companies that received contracts under the national shipbuilding program — Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax and Seaspan in Vancouver.Both firms wrote letters protesting the Davie deal.Fraser was asked about touting Davie’s capabilities in what amounts to Irving’s backyard in Halifax.“The last time I checked I don’t believe Nova Scotia is the monopoly of Mr. Irving,” he said. “This is a lot of jobs, this is a lot of work for local companies.”
FREDERICTON – It’s not exactly Cheech and Chong University, but New Brunswick’s new government cannabis agency is offering lessons on how to roll a joint.The Cannabis NB website includes a “Cannabis 101” section to teach people new to the recreational drug how to prepare it.It says to break down your cannabis until it looks like the consistency of oregano — but adds it should not smell like oregano.The instructions — which include pictures — say to “fill the centre of the rolling paper with your ground cannabis and distribute it evenly so that your joint does not resemble a hill, with a bulge in the middle.”The website goes on to say how to shape the joint, and ends with “finish and enjoy.”Other topics include the different kinds of cannabis and their effects, and how to keep your cannabis fresh.
“A LIFETIME” is a new film launched this week by Animal Defenders International (ADI) about the brutal short lives of two foxes, brothers Borys and Eryk, born and killed on a Polish fur farm.ADI placed hidden cameras on the farm to capture this rare insight into an industry that kills more than 100 million animals a year.Watch the film here.Joanna Lumley and Brian Blessed are backing ADI’s campaign to end the fur trade.Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer said: “Over 100 million animals die for their fur every year. Our film shows the lives of these intelligent, feeling individuals and the cruelty they suffer when treated like a product. Just because they are not like us. Playful fox cubs Borys and Eryk, grow up in a small cage and die a terrifying and painful death for vanity and trinkets. This is the real cost of fur – when you buy fur, you buy cruelty, not beauty or luxury.”Three arctic foxes are followed from birth on the Polish fur farm – ADI named them Borys, Eryk and Aleska. We see them nursed by their mother and Aleska taking her first halting steps as a tiny cub. Their world is a small wire cage. After a few weeks their mother is removed and we see the growing cubs explore their world and play together. As their coats change to the thick white fur that would protect them through the winter months, their days are numbered; their fur is a prized product.At less than seven months of age, Boris and then Eryk are dragged from their cage. They have seen other foxes being killed outside their cage and there is nowhere to hide; desperate to avoid their fate, Borys, Eryk and Aleska try to run from the farmer. A terrified Aleska watches as her brothers are pulled from the cage by their tails, one at a time, hung up by a back leg, electrocuted and their bodies thrown on a cart to be skinned. Aleska is spared; she will breed next year’s foxes, her babies will be taken away from her and killed like her brothers.Poland is the fourth largest producer of fox fur in the world – almost all is exported. ADI’s previous investigations of fur farms in Finland, the world’s largest producer of fox fur, have shown similar suffering and cruel deaths. The ADI team has also filmed inside farms in the United States and UK – the UK banned fur farming but remains a major dealer importing and exporting fur. The ADI findings reveal a cruel industry built on an image of beauty and luxury, desperately hiding the suffering of sensitive, intelligent, animals being farmed in filthy, intensive factory conditions or trapped for their fur.• Wild foxes are forced to live in small bare wire cages • Excrement falls through the cages and piles up beneath them • Animals farmed for their fur are denied their most natural behaviours, the chronic deprivation and extreme confinement causing both psychological and physical damage. • Babies are torn from their mothers at just a few weeks old • The stark, filthy fur farm — a far cry from the complex, enriched wild habitat they deserve — takes a toll on their mental and physical health • After only seven short months, baby foxes are dragged from cages by their tails, hung upside down and electrocuted in front of their families and other animals on the farm. • The animals are aware of what will happen to them and make desperate attempts to evade capture in the small cage and cling onto the mesh. • Animals not killed outright despite industry claims and are electrocuted a second time. • During ADI’s Polish investigation, one fox completely regained consciousness, ran away and found somewhere to hide. The fox was dragged from his hiding place and hug up again but desperately resisted the probe that he now knew, would kill him.Worldwide every year over 110 million animals are killed on fur farms, with more than 16 million trapped in the wild for their fur. Over 15 million foxes are killed in a year, usually for trinkets, trims and accessories but up to 35 foxes can be used to make a fur coat.Recently, products being sold as “fake” have been found to be real fur – perhaps unsurprising that an industry that treats animals as they do, would lie about it to fool the public into buying their cruel products.Naturally shy and secretive animals, in the wild foxes have large territories, live in dens below ground in open country and eat a wide range of foods. Arctic foxes like Borys, Eryk and Aleska are nomadic, travelling many miles each day over the ice, enjoying the existence for which they evolved.On the Polish farm ADI documented foxes with bent feet and overgrown claws, the result of a lifetime stood on a floor of wire mesh; individuals who suffered tail loss, caused by chewing due to stress; an animal with a weeping eye, swollen with pus, that was left untreated; young foxes attempting to play but restricted by the confines of their cage; animals chewing and pawing at their cages in a desire to escape and to express themselves in their natural digging behaviours.Actress and long-time ADI supporter Joanna Lumley, said: “Be comfortable in your own skin, and not that of a poor defenceless animal caged and killed to provide it. Say no to fur and yes to helping these fashion victims. Please help ADI stop this brutal trade.”Animal loving actor Brian Blessed, said: “Millions of wild animals live on factory farms, bred for the fashion industry. It’s time to kill the suffering, not the animal. Always choose faux and not real fur and support ADI’ in this campaign.”Jan Creamer, who has filmed in multiple fur farms, said: “Small, barren cages denying wild animals anything natural are the norm for an industry responsible for the cruel and unnecessary killing of over 100 million animals every year for vanity. In the UK 74% of the public opposes the wearing of fur, so it is disappointing that 17 years after the banning of fur farms here, the country remains a hub for the import and export of fur products. We need a concerted effort to eliminate this trade worldwide and that includes people being on the look-out for real fur being sold as “fake”.”Other stars also back the campaign:Legendary TV host and philanthropist Bob Barker, said: “Many years ago I helped make ‘The Price Is Right’ among the very first shows to not allow fur coats as prizes. We’ve come a long way in making the world more humane for animals, but as you can see in the absolutely horrific treatment of foxes on ADI’s undercover video, we have a long way to go. Fur is never fashionable. Please don’t buy fur.”Actress Elaine Hendrix, known for her roles in The Parent Trap, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, and Inspector Gadget 2, said: “It was actually from an undercover fur video years ago that I became enlightened as to what was happening with animals. That changed my life, and I hope this video from ADI will change yours. When you see these vulnerable baby foxes brutalized for fashion, it should make us all think differently about our relationship to animals, and never, ever buy fur.”Actress Alexandra Paul, internationally recognized for her 5-year starring role as Lt. Stephanie Holden in the tv series Baywatch, said: I believe in all animals’ right to live free, pain free. ADI’s recent undercover fur exposé, which follows three baby foxes through their heartbreaking life to their tragic death on a Polish fur farm, is shocking. Thank you ADI for exposing this. We all need to share this video and make this stop.”

Liverpool: Liverpool must turn to unlikely heroes to overturn a 3-0 Champions League semi-final, first leg deficit against Barcelona on Tuesday, according to defender Trent Alexander-Arnold after Mohamed Salah was ruled out with concussion. Roberto Firmino will also be absent against the Spanish champions at Anfield, leaving Jurgen Klopp without two of his most potent attacking weapons for what is already a massive challenge. “Obviously we’ve got two of our main goal scorers out, but it also presents an opportunity for some of the other lads to come in, make a name for themselves and make themselves heroes,” said Alexander-Arnold. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju”If we do overturn the deficit tomorrow then whoever scores, their name will always be remembered because I am sure it will be one of those really special nights.” Salah was stretchered off during Liverpool’s tense 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday that kept alive their chances of a first Premier League title in 29 years after colliding with Magpies’ goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. “It’s a concussion so that means he would not even be allowed to play,” Klopp said on Monday. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters”He feels OK but it is not good enough from a medical point of view that is all. He’s desperate (to play) but we cannot do it.” Klopp, speaking before Manchester City ensured they remain in the driving seat for the Premier League title by beating Leicester 1-0 on Monday, was realistic about his side’s chances of progressing to a second consecutive Champions League final. But the German refused to give up hope. “Together with our supporters it was a long season and there is at least a little chance to make it even longer,” Klopp added. “Two of the world’s best strikers are not available tomorrow night and we have to score four goals against Barcelona to go through after 90 minutes. “It doesn’t make life easier, but as long as we have 11 players on the pitch, we will try it.” Luis Suarez scored the opening goal against his former club in last week’s first leg at the Camp Nou, but ahead of his return to Anfield, the Uruguayan warned his current teammates of the lift playing on home soil will give Liverpool. “To play at Anfield is like playing with an extra man for what the fans transmit to the Liverpool players,” said Suarez. And Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde believes attack will be the best form of defence as if the Catalans get an away goal, Liverpool will need to score five. “What we have to do is score,” said Valverde.
“As we build these police stations, we also have to focus on other demands, such as the cost associated with running them,” said UNDP Country Director, Dominic Sam, at the ceremony for the Tubmanburg Police Station.“We also need to think about supporting continuous training and provision of essential logistics to enable the LNP carry out its statutory responsibilities successfully,” Mr. Sam added.The new police station, which was funded by Norway with backing from UNDP and the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), contains a women and children protection unit, with tackling rape in particular tasked as well as other forms of gender-based violence.“Norway’s contribution has proved instrumental in encouraging the expansion of the Women and Children Protection programmes in 21 locations throughout Liberia,” said Acting Commissioner of UN Police, Ibrahim Idris.Mr. Idris also pointed out that the programmes have also helped in strengthening the LNP’s ability to protect vulnerable groups, especially by building confidence and trust between victims, police and communities.Meanwhile, in the Liberian capital, Monrovia, participants at a high-level forum on employment in Africa said the creation of jobs across the continent would also bring important peace and security benefits.“There is no lasting peace without jobs,” said a senior official of the UN International Labour Organization (ILO) for Africa, Mpenga Kabundi.“Decent jobs [are necessary] for a just society and a sustainable route out of poverty,” he added, while speaking at the ILO-backed forum yesterday. 10 September 2008The head of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Liberia stressed the importance of providing the National Police (LNP) with all the resources necessary to enforce the rule of law, during a hand-over of a newly-constructed police station today.
EuroMed brings together the 25 European Union (EU) member States and 10 Mediterranean partner governments, gathering for the first time since the November 1995 launch of the Barcelona Process designed to encourage political, economic and social cooperation between countries in the Mediterranean basin.Thousands of migrants and refugees who want to reach Europe undertake the perilous journey across the Mediterranean Sea each year to escape persecution or war, or simply to improve their economic prospects, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said. The human tragedy associated with the rising death toll at sea and recent events involving Spain’s North African enclaves and Morocco, has added greater urgency to these discussions, it said.”This situation has now reached the proportions of a major humanitarian crisis and requires urgent action from all the countries concerned,” UNHCR spokeswoman Jennifer Pagonis said today. “Preventing further loss of life needs to be a clear priority in the framework of the EuroMed partnership.”Saying it recognizes the legitimate right of governments to manage irregular migration, UNCHR has noted that within large refugee flows there often are people fleeing persecution and violence.”States have a legal and moral responsibility to provide protection to those in need,” Ms. Pagonis said. “The question is how to ensure that those seeking asylum have an effective access to fair and efficient determination procedures, even if they arrive together with people migrating for other reasons.”
He has long been classed as one of William Shakespeare’s major rivals and influences, but scholars now believe Christopher Marlowe’s links with the Bard run even deeper.The Elizabethan playwright is to be given credit as a co-writer of the Henry VI plays in a new Oxford University Press edition of Shakespeare’s work.Marlowe, who is famed for penning Doctor Faustus, was suspected to have been involved in writing the three parts of Henry VI as early as the 18th century. However until now he has not received joint credit for the plays in an edition of Shakespeare’s collected works.The forthcoming edition of the New Oxford Shakespeare reflects research by academics using modern computerised tools, which suggest that Shakespeare worked alongside other writers more often than previously thought.The research, by 23 scholars, identified 17 of 44 Shakespeare plays as being co-written by other authors. In contrast, in 1986 the collected works suggested eight of 39 plays were collaborative.

Dr Gary Taylor, one of the edition’s general editors, said that in the 1980s the suggestion that Shakespeare partnered with other writers prompted outrage, but now there is “empirical evidence” for collaboration.“We have been able to verify Marlowe’s presence in those three plays strongly and clearly enough,” he told the Guardian.“We can now be confident that they didn’t just influence each other, but they worked with each other. Rivals sometimes collaborate.”
Mining operations run continuously and any time for maintenance needs to be minimised. One of the major procedures is the overhaul of mine haul truck wheel sets, and for customers that operate the popular Komatsu 930E, the time to complete this task has been greatly reduced by Sulzer’s new exchange program. As one of the world’s leading independent maintenance providers, Sulzer says it understands the needs and demands of the mining sector “and has been using its engineering expertise to deliver operational excellence for these large haul trucks for many years.”Modern mining equipment has to operate round-the-clock in order to be productive. Central to open-cast mining operations are the haul trucks which bring the raw materials out of the mine for processing. Over the years, haul trucks have grown to gigantic proportions, capable of carrying up to 500 short tons and they rely on the rear drive axle to propel the enormous vehicle and its payload.One of the most widely used mine haul trucks is the Komatsu 930E, which uses a GE 106Y wheel set, and is capable of carrying 390 short tons. Operating multiple shifts every day in order to maximize efficiency means that the wheel set typically needs to be rebuilt every four years, a service that Sulzer has performed for its customers for many years.“Now the downtime for a wheel set refurbishment can be drastically reduced with the launch of Sulzer’s exchange program. Recent investment by the company has enabled it to deliver completely refurbished wheel sets in exchange for a component due for overhaul. This reduces maintenance time to an absolute minimum, allowing the customer to maximize productivity.”The GE 106Y wheel set uses electrical power to drive a traction motor, connected to a drive shaft which drives the epicyclic reductions in the wheel hub. Constant use to move thousands of tonnes of material every day in such an unforgiving environment leads to wear that needs to be repaired in order to ensure continued service. Initially this work is carried out by the OEM under a service agreement, but when the contracts expire, end users are able to take advantage of independent engineering providers such as Sulzer.Sulzer says it has fully equipped and experienced engineers in its service centres to remanufacture complete wheel sets to OEM standards. The exchange program takes in wheel sets that are due for overhaul and sends out a fully rebuilt and tested replacement, ensuring continued reliability and productivity. The wheel sets that are received undergo an extensive refurbishment process that includes replacement of all worn or damaged components, non-destructive testing of all geared components as well as comprehensive electrical and mechanical testing.“In addition, proven modifications to the original design can also be introduced to the refurbished component, further improving the reliability and durability of the vehicle. The rebuilt wheel sets come with standard warranty terms that exceed the OEM offering. For complete peace of mind, this warranty can be tailored to suit the operational conditions of a particular mine.”

Most of the airplanes ever produced follow the same basic design guidelines. They’re essentially big metal cylinders with wings bolted on. This is not the most elegant or efficient design, but it’s very easy and cheap to build. NASA, in conjunction with aerospace firms Pratt & Whitney and Boeing, has been working on a new “hybrid wing” design that could change the economics of flight dramatically by saving up to 50% on fuel.While the tube-shaped planes we all use are easy to produce, fuel usage is higher than it should be because they’re just so heavy and only marginally aerodynamic. A hybrid wing has long been seen as superior, except that construction costs are higher and it’s a challenge to design a structurally sound internal cabin for passengers.NASA has been slowly ramping up the size of its remote controlled test craft, including the 6-meter wide X-48B. A new type of construction technique has proven successful so far. NASA’s manufacturing process begins with pre-molded carbon rods. These rods make up the structure of the aircraft with carbon fiber fabric stretched over top. Dense foam strips are used to create cross beams, and then the whole thing is coated with an epoxy compound that dries into a rigid frame.So this method obviously takes care of the weight issue, but how durable is it? Testing shows that the finished material can withstand all the forces associated with flight, and it also resists widespread cracking when it does exceed its limits. A larger version of the hybrid wing is in testing now.The other side of the research has to do with advanced engines that complement the more lightweight and aerodynamic design. NASA is working with ultra-high bypass engines in the prototypes. These engines have much larger intake fans on the front when compared to the core of the engine where combustion takes place. An ultra-high bypass engine can be much more efficient, but has to be mounted to the top of the aircraft due to size.Final testing of the manufacturing process is expected to be completed in 2015. At that point, the hybrid wing design might finally be scaled up and start saving fuel.via Technology Review

The soon-to-be RB Leipzig midfielder talked to Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie before he decided his move19-year-old midfielder Tyler Adams will join RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga this January.But before signing for his new team, he talked to his fellow Americans: Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie.“I spoke to Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie about the league while we were with the national team,” he was quoted by the Bundesliga website.Tyler Adams wants to win it all! Manuel R. Medina – June 25, 2019 The RB Leipzig and United States midfielder want to establish himself in the German Bundesliga and then win it all.“They’re both good friends of mine. It won’t be easy to adapt, but the Bundesliga is well known for giving young players a chance.”“I was able to train here when I was 16 and even played against Bayern Munich with the youth team. From that moment on I knew I wanted to come here,” he remembered his time in Germany in the past.“I’ve been learning German for five months. It’s very difficult but when I’m in Leipzig I want to speak it as well as possible.”
Manager Santiago Solari revealed what he told Vinicius after he scored the goal against Real Valladolid, he also gave his impressions of the win.After so much pressure had mounted against Real Madrid in the last few weeks, the Spanish squad really needed a victory like the one they got today under interim manager Santiago Solari as his decision to use Vinicius paid off. Throughout the whole match, the Argentine manager was able to write down the many concepts that he needs to improve for the next match against Viktoria Plzen and he also took note of the players who are not going through the best moment of the season.The one that especially worried Santi was Gareth Bale, the Welshman left eh pitch of the Bernabeu in the middle of a thunderous jeer because he doesn’t seem to be making the effort from other seasons.Amongst all the players who struggled to find their best form, there was Vinicius who could lift up the spirit of his teammates right after he got on the pitch and didn’t take long to create the first goal at the Bernabeu.After he went to celebrate the goal with Solari on the sideline, we could see the manager shouting instructions to a player who was happy for his moment.👊 That winning feeling!#RMLiga | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/ur3BGMYO1Y— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 3, 2018After the match, Santiago Solari spoke with the media about Vinicius and many more topics, but the press was a lot more interested in the Brazilian and his performance.When Santiago was questioned about the instructions he gave Vinicius after the first goal, the manager revealed what he said.“I asked him to be more daring on the attack, I asked him to go after the defenders in a one vs one situation, I asked him to dribble and to not be afraid which is something he already does anyway,” said Solari on the Real Madrid website.“But most importantly, I asked him to defend more, which is something that he needs to improve.”“The football players or the people who are inside this world of football cannot fight with what happens outside of the pitch, we can’t change the mind of the media.”“I love the people getting hopeful for players like Vinicius, who is still 18 and has his whole career in front of him.”“All the analysis about him will need to get made 20 years from now, once he’s finished his career.”Fati and Suarez shine against Valencia at Camp Nou Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 15, 2019 With a mesmerizing first half from Ansu Fati and a brace from Luis Suarez in the second half, Barcelona demolished Valencia at Camp Nou.Valencia…“For now, Vinicius is one more element from the squad, who has his obvious virtues and his defects as well. But let’s all remember that he is still an 18-year old lad, please,” he added.🏁 FT: @RealMadrid 2-0 @realvalladolid (Kiko Olivas (og) 83′, @SergioRamos 88′ (p)).#Emirates | #RMLiga pic.twitter.com/KKsvc6gWk4— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 3, 2018When asked about the result of the game and what he thought can be improved, Santiago Solari was mostly happy because the squad was able to get the three points.However, Santi understands football differently and he confessed that he would’ve loved to win the game by many more goals but he understands that football doesn’t work like that.“You can’t always win by a large margin during the most delicate moments. This has been a very challenging test for us against a very difficult opponent, they took this match very seriously and were always very close together which is always harmful to us,” continued Solari.“I would like to congratulate the lads because they played a very serious game, very strict. Games with results like this are always like that.”“This is what football is all about, very visceral, emotional, it relies a lot on self-confidence from the players.”“The whole dynamic changed after the first goal and the hormones flowed inside the pitch after that. Scoring the first goal was very important, as it was also important to keep a clean sheet.”“Valladolid is a very tough opponent, they hadn’t lost in the last seven matches. This is a very serious squad and they can hurt you when you leave them space to do it. We needed these three points.”2We need to keep calm, we can’t surrender and we need to stay organized in order to create a balance but I think we could pull it off. I’m very well actually, I have been in this situation before as a player, I am already used to the stadium,” he concluded.🎙💬 Santiago Solari takes charge of @realmadrid in a LaLiga match for the first time tomorrow!
