Butland claimed that the being relegated is terrible

first_imgJack Butland and Stoke City were relegated to the Championship after failing in their attempts to avoid the drop – and despite the goalkeeper is likely to leave now, he admitted that it is a terrible feeling.Butland came back after a series of injuries but he failed to help his side away from their troubles – and he admitted that it will be difficult to heal from this experience as it has been very tough lately for him.The England international spoke about his side’s relegation as he said, according to 101 Great Goals:“It’s been a tough two years but I’ll recover from it like I recover from anything.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“I have to suck up the bad stuff and process things quickly – the injury, losses, relegation – and mentally you have to move on quickly.”“Relegation hurts — even now just thinking about it, it’s a horrible feeling. But life goes on for all of us and we have to dust ourselves down, whether it’s the lads going to the World Cup or on holiday.”“We all have to accept what has happened and improve.”“It’s my nature to strive for the best and to keep pushing and that’s what I’ll continue to do whatever the future holds.”last_img read more

Mbappe reveals French Olympic dream

first_imgKylian Mbappe revealed that he next intends to star for France at the OlympicsThe 19-year-old striker has already risen to the top of the football world following his exploits at Russia in the summer, which saw France claim a second World Cup title.Over the past year alone, Mbappe has won every domestic honour available in his home country at Paris Saint-Germain with a club European title the only thing lacking from his already extensive trophy haul.However, speaking at his hometown of Bondy on Wednesday, Mbappe declared that he intends to emulate PSG teammates Neymar and Marquinhos by winning gold at the Olympics.The pair won gold for hosts Brazil at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“I still have a lot of things to do,” Mbappe told RMC Sport. “I want to accomplish everything.“With France, I still have the European Championship to win. I would also, why not, like to compete in the Olympics. Then, with PSG, we all know what [the Champions League] is missing there.”Mbappe is on the shortlist for this year’s Ballon d’Or and the Kopa Award for the best under-21 player.However, winning football’s most prestigious individual award in the Ballon d’Or can come later as far as Mbappe is concerned.He said: “Ballon d’Or talk is unwelcome here. We can talk about that at a later date.”last_img read more

Game of Thrones season 8 episode 6 FINAL scene A White Walker

first_imgPeter Dinklage as Tyrion LannisterHBOGame of Thrones will soon be airing its final season and fans may very well be realizing that this is indeed the end of their favourite show. So, in the spirit of goodbyes, we have the apparent description of the final scene that will wrap the final season of Game of Thrones.Be warned. Spoilers abound.The final episode winds down with a scene in the far far North, in the Lands of Always Winter. A single White Walker apparently rides to and brings the body of Bran Stark to an altar.It is known that the Night King stabbed Bran in episode 2. He was stabbed in the heart with Dragonglass. The White Walker seemingly performs a certain ritual and Bran opens his eyes, they’re apparently bright blue. The White Walker apparently puts a crown on Bran’s head and the altar slowly changes into one of ice.  Bran Stark is the Night KingFacebookThat is quite an ominous ending to the show and we have to say, leaves things a bit open-ended. Could there be a continuation of the story in a sequel series? We know that HBO is planning a prequel series but Game of Thrones has been too much of a success for HBO to just end it. Maybe we can expect a sequel to Game of Thrones in a couple of years. But for now, we’ll just have to make do with the final six episodes of the final season of Game of Thrones. The cast and crew of the show has apparently been saying their goodbyes.The final season of Game of Thrones will air in April. We can’t wait for the final season of Game of Thrones.last_img read more

Asia stocks dollar edge lower as markets await Fed Bank of Japan

first_imgAsian shares and the dollar edged lower on Monday as investors awaited central bank meetings in the United States and Japan this week that are expected to hold clues to future policy moves.MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.2 percent in early trading, taking its cue from a mixed day on Wall Street on Friday.Markets in Australia were closed for Anzac Day, a public holiday.Japan’s Nikkei stock index shed about 0.5 percent as the yen pulled off its lows. Investors also locked in gains after the index soared to an 11-1/2 week high following a report the Bank of Japan will consider another easing step at its two-day policy review that ends on Wednesday.Bloomberg reported on Friday that the BOJ is considering applying negative rates to its lending programme for financial institutions.But some investors still believe the central bank might opt to hold steady as it assesses the impact of its negative interest rate policy unveiled on Jan. 29. A semi-annual report on the country’s banking system issued on Friday by the central bank said the policy has caused some disruption in fund flows and will hurt financial institutions’ profits for the time being.Underpinning sentiment, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordered his government on Sunday to compile an extra budget package to fund reconstruction from recent earthquakes that hit Kumamoto prefecture in southwestern Japan, with an aim to put it into effect by June 1.Against the yen, the dollar slipped about 0.4 percent to 111.41 yen after it earlier rose as high as 111.90, its loftiest peak since April 1.”The wide interest rate differential between the U.S. and Japan make it costly to be long yen without momentum,” Marc Chandler, global head of currency strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman in New York, said in a not to clients.”Momentum and trend followers appear heavily represented in the futures market, and they have been caught the wrong way. This may see the tone shift from selling dollar rallies to buy dips,” Chandler said.The euro added about 0.1 percent to $1.1231. Last week the European Central Bank held its policy rates at historic lows as expected.The Fed, which lifted its benchmark overnight interest rate in December for the first time in nearly a decade, meets on Wednesday.Policymakers are expected to hold interest rates steady when they meet this week, but may tweak their description of the economic outlook to reflect more benign conditions, leaving the path open for future rate rises.A Reuters poll showed on Friday showed that economists expect the Fed to stand pat and then deliver a rate hike in June, and follow up with another by the end of this year.Crude oil prices slipped after rising on Friday and notching their third straight week of gains as market sentiment turned more upbeat amid signs a persistent global supply glut may be easing.Brent fell about 0.7 percent to $44.79 a barrel, while U.S. crude shed about 0.9 percent to $43.36.last_img read more

Watch Frozen juice box eggs hard like rock this is how Indian

first_imgscreengrabThe Indian Army stationed at Siachen glaciers have to break their meals, which includes frozen juice, vegetables and eggs, everyday. At minus 50 degrees Celsius, the soldiers live and operate in some of the harshest conditions.In a video posted by the Indian Military Academy (IMA) Dehradun, three army officers posted at Siachen can be seen unpacking a frozen juice bottle and trying to defrost eggs that have become hard like a rock along with other vegetables due to the harsh climatic conditions.The video has gone viral on social media that shows the soldiers struggle to make the frozen food supplies usable at the high-altitude base. The soldiers can be seen trying to break the frozen juice with a Ghurkha knife and hammer. The soldier tells that the juice brick has to be heated up and melted in order to drink it. One of the soldiers throws the eggs at a solid slab but the egg does not break.Even though the video is fun to watch, it shows the extreme conditions through which a soldier in the glaciers have to fight not just with the enemy beyond the lines but also with Mother Nature herself to stay alive. Frostbites, avalanche, landslides are the other things the soldiers are fighting in their everyday life.Siachen, located in the eastern Karakoram Range of the great Himalayas, is the longest glacier in the Karakoram and second-longest in the world’s non-polar areas making it one of the coldest battlefields in the world. These are one of the most hostile terrains in the world where the Indian Army has posted its finest men to guard the nation with high spirit and valour.last_img read more

Sun Pharma shares slide over USFDA observations on Halol unit

first_imgPrivate sector healthcare firm Sun Pharmaceuticals witnessed a plunge in its share price on Wednesday as brokerage firm IIFL said the US health regulator had issued a 14-page 483 observations letter to the company post inspection of its Halol unit in Gujarat.At 11.44 pm, shares of Sun Pharmaceuticals were down four percent to trade at Rs 677.45 at the National Stock Exchange.According to Moneycontrol, the US regulator completed inspection of the plant on December 1 and subsequently issued the observation letter to the company.”IIFL didn’t know the contents of the observations yet and it was also difficult to ascertain the severity of the 483 Form,” the report quoted IIFL as saying. The observation letter is expected to be available in a couple of days, the report said.An FDA Form 483 is issued to a drug maker when investigators observe any conditions which may constitute violations of the existing US drug regulations.Usually, after inspection of a drug manufacturing facility by US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) officials, observations are issued to the drug maker for taking remedial measures. Though compliance to observations made by the regulator is not mandatory, repeated non-compliance leads to issuance of warning letter and may lead to closure of the facility in extreme situations.According to the report, USFDA clearance to Sun Pharma’s Halol unit is vital for company’s future revenue growth as the US constitutes almost 50 percent of the drug maker’s revenue.Earlier, the Halol plant had received 483 observations letter of 19 pages ultimately resulting into issuance of a warning letter, the report said.last_img read more

Prior to being banned from most major platforms, Jones also had individual videos removed for hate speech and other terms of use violations.Jones spread the false claim that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax, and last week, parents of children murdered in the tragedy won a legal victory against the pundit. A judge ruled that the families of the victims must be granted access to financial records and other documents as part of the discovery process in an ongoing lawsuit against Infowars.An attorney representing several of the families also criticized the company for carrying Infowars in a statement released Tuesday afternoon:“Roku’s shocking decision to carry Infowars and provide a platform for Alex Jones is an insult to the memory of the 26 children and educators killed at Sandy Hook. Worse, it interferes with families’ efforts to prevent people like Jones from profiting off innocent victims whose lives have been turned upside down by unspeakable loss. We call on Roku to realize this and immediately pull the program.” Popular on Variety The company originally responded to the controversy by saying Infowars wasn’t currently violating its terms of use. Digiday first reported that Roku added Infowars six months after major platforms, including Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Apple’s app store, removed Jones and his outlet from their services.Infowars had been on Roku for years with a channel apparently created by Infowars contributor Paul Joseph Watson. In recent weeks, the company added another channel that seems to have been created by an outside web development company. Roku has taken the Infowars channel off its platform after the streaming device faced criticism for carrying the controversial program hosted by right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.“After the InfoWars channel became available, we heard from concerned parties and have determined that the channel should be removed from our platform,” stated the company’s tweet on Tuesday evening. “Deletion from the channel store and platform has begun and will be completed shortly.”last_img read more

Panasonic tech fixes color setbacks in low light photos w video

first_imgNishiwaki made special note of something called Babinet-BPM: “We’ve developed a completely new analysis method, called Babinet-BPM. Compared with the usual FDTD method, the computation speed is 325 times higher, but it only consumes 1/16 of the memory. This is the result of a three-hour calculation by the FDTD method. We achieved the same result in just 36.9 seconds.”FDTD stands for finite-difference time-domain and BPM stands for beam propagation method. Both are numerical analysis techniques. Panasonic’s work is also described in Nature Photonics, in a study called “Efficient colour splitters for high-pixel-density image sensors.” The authors said, “We experimentally demonstrate that this principle of colour splitting based on near-field deflection can generate color images with minimal signal loss.” Citation: Panasonic tech fixes color setbacks in low light photos (w/ video) (2013, March 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-03-panasonic-tech-setbacks-photos-video.html “Conventional color image sensors use a Bayer array [the arrangement of color filters used in imaging sensors in digital cameras, camcorders, and scanners to create a color image]. The filter pattern is 50 percent green, 25 percent red and 25 percent blue in which a red, green, or blue light-transmitting filter is placed above each sensor. These filters block 50 to 70 percent of the incoming light before it even reaches the sensor,” according to a Panasonic release. Seeing demand for higher-sensitivity cameras on the rise, Panasonic sought a new solution to enable sensors to capture “uniquely vivid” color images. In the video, Seiji Nishiwaki commented further: “Here, color filters aren’t used. So light can be captured without loss, which enables us to achieve approximately double the sensitivity.”Nishiwaki said Panasonic’s technology can be used on different types of sensors, whether CCD, CMOS, or BSI and can be in step with current semiconductor fabrication processes. He said the new approach would not require any special materials or processes.According to DigInfo TV: “The image sensor uses two types of color splitters: red deflectors and blue deflectors.The red and blue deflectors are arranged diagonally, with one of each for every four pixels. RGB values can be obtained by determining the intensity of light reaching each of the four pixels. For example, if white light enters each pixel, pixels where it doesn’t pass through a deflector receive unmodified white light. But in pixels with a red deflector, the light is split into red diffracted light and cyan non-diffracted light. And when white light passes through a blue deflector, it’s split into blue diffracted light and yellow non-diffracted light. As a result, the pixel arrangement is cyan, white + red, white + blue, and yellow. The RGB values are then calculated using a processing technique designed specifically for mixed color signals.” © 2013 Phys.org Panasonic develops a next-generation robust image sensor (Phys.org) —Panasonic’s new color filtering technology is in the news this week after a video from DigInfo TV presented what imaging experts at Panasonic have been up to, and that is using “micro color splitters,” which achieve twice the brightness than before possible. These micro color splitters replace a traditional filter array over the image sensor. The result from the new approach is especially relevant for those working with low light photography—situations wherever there is less than daytime light outside, or any indoor photography without much ambient light. The researchers found their new approach could almost double the brightness in photos taken in low light environments. Saying no to traditional color filters, the researchers wanted a technique where light is captured without any loss. More information: Nature Photonics paper: www.nature.com/nphoton/journal … photon.2012.345.htmlVia Diginfo.tv Journal information: Nature Photonics Explore further The problem has been that image sensors have produced color pictures by using red, green, and blue filters for each pixel, but with that system, 50 percent to 70 percent of the light is lost. The micro color splitters control the diffraction of light at a microscopic level. Panasonic’s imaging experts said that they achieved approximately double the color sensitivity in comparison with conventional sensors that use color filters. This document is subject to copyright.

A blend of strings and steps

first_imgThe sixth edition of the strings and steps festival organised by noted Kathak dancer Sangeeta Majumder and Hawaiian guitar player Neel Ranjan Mukherjee got off to a flying start in the Capital. One of the highlights of the festival was the jugalbandhi between Sangeeta and Neel Ranjan; a first between a stringed instrument and dance, paving way for a wonderfully executed festival. The Strings and Steps Festival this year was a two day event that featured several musicians and some leading dancers. The genesis of the name of the festival has a story of its own. Sangeeta Majumder named this festival as ‘Strings N Steps’ after her ‘Kathak-Hawaiian Guitar amalgamation concept.’ In its 2017 edition, the country in focus was Canada and featured performances by eminent artists from the faraway land. Besides the jugalbandi, day one of the festival featured Pt Dev Bansraj on vocals and Dave Bansraj on Tabla and Sitar recital by Pt Prateek Chaudhuri, Ud Akram Khan on Tabla. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSecond day of the festival saw delightful performances including that of doyen of Bharatnatyam Padmabhushan Saroja Vaidyanathan who gave an impressive lecture demonstration on the concept of Ashtanayika. The Ashta-Nayika is a collective name for eight types of nayikas or heroines as classified by Bharata in his Sanskrit treatise on performing arts – Natya Shastra. The other dance performance of the evening was Odissi dance recital by young dancer Gaurie Dwivedi who performed a piece of Devi Stuti. The item choreographed by Guru Bichitrananda Swain gave vivid description of the Goddess who as the Mother is the creator and nurtures and also slays demons Mahishasura.

However, growth in TV and broadband was not able to offset the decline in fixed lines due to a decline in fixed phone use.Post-paid mobile subscribers increased, while fixed-line and pre-paid mobile customers declined.Swisscom posted revenues of CHF8.65 billion (€8 billion), down 0.1%, and EBITDA of CHF3.1 billion, up 6.7%.Swisscom has still not recognised a provision in its consolidated financial statements related to a fine levied by the competition regulator over its marketing of sports content via pay TV. The company said it was appealing and still expected to escape a sanction.“We have again achieved solid results in the third quarter despite fierce competition. Strong pressure on pricing and decreasing roaming prices are good news for our customers but more challenging for our revenue and profitability. On a more positive note, there is increased growth in bundled products and TV access lines, our solutions business for corporate customers and Fastweb. Thanks to strong market performance and active cost management we are on target,” said CEO Urs Schaeppi.last_img read more

I made 17 trades during my first six weeks as a tr

first_imgI made 17 trades during my first six weeks as a trader. Every single one was a winner.Going 17 for 17 was a remarkable feat for a rookie trader—especially since I wasn’t using any sort of fundamental or technical analysis. I was just going with my gut.But I was careful not to put more than $1,000 or $2,000 into any single trade. And I still managed to turn my $5,000 brokerage account into $50,000 in just six weeks…And then I decided it was time to get serious. No more tiny trades. I was too good for the small stuff. For whatever reason, I had figured out a way to beat the market.Heck, I had just rattled off 17 straight triple-digit winners. So I decided to take the $50,000 in my account, add to it my $25,000 in savings, and put it into a handful of options trades.You can probably guess what happened next.The stock market has a habit of humbling folks who think they’ve figured it out. For me, the humbling started right away.At first, the positions started slightly moving against me. It was nothing to be concerned about. One good day would put everything back in the profit column.But then, one by one, each position blew up on me. It was too painful to watch. I kept the television off and avoided reading the newspaper for fear I’d see something bad about the stock market and my positions. — Geologist Uncovers Incredible Resource Opportunity in IdahoDave Forest, a professionally trained geologist, has visited over 23 countries, but one of his most stunning finds is here in America. Dave discovered a rare fuel source buried in the ground in Idaho that he calls “Brandt Oil,” and it could change the energy landscape in the U.S. for good… We’ve asked Dave to give you complete access to everything he’s uncovered about “Brandt Oil.” Just click here for details. Recommended Link When I finally got up enough courage to call the branch manager and check on the status of my account, I learned all the gains I had built up over the previous six weeks were gone.“Just sell everything,” I said.That was an expensive lesson to learn. But it’s one every options trader learns at some point. I was just fortunate it happened to me early in my career.You see, that experience changed how I looked at trading. Instead of using options as vehicles for speculation—a way to juice my returns and get more bang for my buck—I started using them the way they were intended to be used: as a way to reduce risk.Today, I still do my fair share of speculating. But I’m not focused on how much money I can make. I’m focused on how little I can lose.That’s a huge difference. It has allowed me to trade options successfully for nearly three decades. And it allowed me to retire at 42.Best regards and good trading,Jeff Clark Editor, Market MinuteP.S. Like any honest trader will admit, this is far from the only horror story that has occurred over my career.

If you’re interested in becoming a better trader, the following essay is required reading. In it, Jeff shares one of the most important lessons of his career…By Jeff Clark, editor, Market MinuteI was only 19 years old when I made my first options trade.I had a gut feeling the market was going to go higher… so I bought four S&P 100 call options at $1.50—a total investment of $600. A few hours later, the options were trading at $4.50. I sold and took the $1,200 profit—a 200% gain. And I was hooked on options forever.My next trade was in IBM. I bought 10 calls for $1. This time, it took a couple days to double my money. Next, I bought Digital Equipment put options… which nearly tripled in just a few days.

Starting Wednesday the sale of recreational marij

first_imgStarting Wednesday, the sale of recreational marijuana begins in Canada following a law passed over the summer.The law says anyone in Canada over the age of 18 is allowed to possess marijuana, provided it’s less than 30 grams — just over an ounce. Canadians can also grow up to four marijuana plants in their home and buy from a provincially regulated retailer.The country had months to prepare for the law’s launch. The House of Commons and the Senate approved legalization in June, and later scheduled the law to go into effect on Wednesday.Keeping the drug illegal in the years prior “has allowed criminals and organized crime to profit, while failing to keep cannabis out of the hands of Canadian youth,” the government said in a news release last year. The Canadian Department of Justice says historically, the majority of police-reported drug offenses have involved marijuana.The government of Canada will oversee production and manufacturing of the drug. Provincial and municipal governments have control over wholesaling, and will also be able to set laws on public consumption. In provinces without a regulated retail framework, Canadians can purchase marijuana online from a federally licensed producer with “secure home delivery.””Provinces will learn from each other, municipalities will learn from each other,” former Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan told Here and Now in September.McLellan added that early tax revenues from generated cannabis sales will be used to research addiction treatment, for mental health resources and treatment, and for public education about the drug. “We heard when we visited states in the U.S. that have legalized [marijuana], it’s really important to get out and educate your public,” she said. McLellan said the government’s early estimates of use in the country of 36 million ranges from 650,000 to 900,000 tons on an annual basis. A report by Deloitte estimates the Canadian marijuana market will pass $7 billion by 2019.”I do believe that the government of Canada is ready,” McLellan said.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters last week that he would look into pardons for Canadians convicted of cannabis possession. Prior to the new law, simple possession of the drug was punishable by fines of up to $1,000 and six months in prison.Canada is only the second in the world to legalize recreational use of the drug. Uruguay became the first in 2013. Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.last_img read more
