In his individual list, CBS analyst Barton Simmons has Scott Frost all the way up at No. 7.He made his case on the outlet’s Cover 3 podcast, arguing that top programs would sooner hire an up-and-comer like Frost, who was the hottest coaching commodity after the 2017 season, than an established top coach like TCU’s Gary Patterson, who ranks No. 8 on the list.Via 247Sports:“If you are Texas, and you could hire Scott Frost or you could hire Gary Patterson, is it a no-brainer you’d hire Gary Patterson?” Simmons asked.[…]‘If you are Oklahoma, and you could hire Scott Frost or Mark Dantonio?” Simmons asked again.[…]“I just think that Scott Frost, if you look at the trajectory, you look at what he inherited at Nebraska, how the team looked at the end of the year,” Simmons said. “I know their record was ugly … They finished 4-2 and started 0-6. Among that 0-6 there were some really weird close losses. He recruits well. The one time we’ve seen him before when he took a winless team to whatever it was — four wins — and then to undefeated in year two, I don’t think there’s any reason to think he can’t take a jump in year two at Nebraska. I just think if you’re actually looking at it from a big-picture standpoint and not just a record from last year, I think there’s a lot to like about having Scott Frost as the guy who runs your program and a guy you entrust with the future of your program. I’d feel good. Whatever the Nebraska win total is this year, I’d be on the over I’d imagine.”Guys like Patterson and Dantonio have definitely accomplished more in their careers overall, but Frost likely has the higher upside, and Simmons may be right that he would be the bigger commodity on the open market, even following a four-win year in Lincoln.Whether that means he is a top 10 coach right now is up for debate, but with a great year, I wouldn’t be surprised if he flirts with it entering 2020.[247Sports] LINCOLN, NE – NOVEMBER 17: Head coach Scott Frost of the Nebraska Cornhuskers celebrates the win against the Michigan State Spartans at Memorial Stadium on November 17, 2018 in Lincoln, Nebraska. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)It took two years for Scott Frost to take UCF from a winless program to an undefeated season and a New Year’s Six bowl win. If he has a similar turnaround at Nebraska in year two, it will be hard to deny that he is one of the best coaches in the sport.But is he top 10 already? One prominent college football analyst thinks so.CBS Sports recently released its rankings of the head coaches in college football. Frost comes in at No. 25 in the full rankings.With Nebraska going 4-8 in Frost’s first season, it’s not a surprise to see his standing take a slight hit, but we’re all still pretty high on him. Nobody thought he’d step in at Nebraska and the Huskers would suddenly be winning 10 or 11 games.That is actually down four spots from where Frost was last season at this time. CBS had him at No. 21 entering his first year at his alma mater.
Rohan Sen HamiltonJanuary 31, 2019UPDATED: January 31, 2019 11:21 IST Trent Boult picked up his fifth five-wicket haul in ODIs to dismiss India for their lowest total in New Zealand (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSTrent Boult picked up his 5th ODI five-wicket haul to bowl out India for 92New Zealand chased down India’s total with 8 wickets and 25.3 overs to spareEven with the loss India still lead the five-match series 3-1 with a match to goBrief Scores: New Zealand (93/2) beat India (92) by 8 wickets. Taylor (37*), Nicholls (30*), Bhuvneshwar (2/25) (SCORECARD) India’s first match without Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni in the one-day international team in four years turned out to be a disastrous one as they lost to New Zealand by 8 wickets in the inconsequential fourth ODI in Hamilton on Thursday.Trent Boult was the star of the show for the hosts as he picked up his 5th ODI five-wicket haul to bowl out India for 92, their lowest total in New Zealand in the format. India suffered their heaviest defeat while defending a total as the the hosts won with 212 balls to spare.The Kiwis in reply, lost the wickets of Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson inside 7 overs but Henry Nicholls and Ross Taylor ensured that no more wickets fell as they raced to victory in the 15th over. The win helped New Zealand register its first win in the five-match series which India lead 3-1.Nicholls remained unbeaten on 30 while Taylor scored 37 with Bhuvneshwar Kumar bagging two wickets for India.Earlier, India were shot out for their seventh lowest total in ODIs as Boult ran through the batting lineup with figures of 5 for 21.Notably, Kohli was not playing for India in the fourth ODI as the India captain was rested for the remainder of the New Zealand tour, including the T20I series, after the third ODI.Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni also missed the match as he failed to recover from the hamstring injury that kept him out of the third ODI as well. This is the first time since 2015 India played an ODI without both Dhoni and Kohli in the playing XI.advertisementThere it is! What a day at Seddon Park. An eight wicket win set up by a stunning spell of bowling by Trent Boult. Taylor 37* and Nicholls 30* finish things off. Scorecard | https://t.co/GB9AZdmmkL #NZvIND pic.twitter.com/tWYAneUQ71BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) January 31, 2019Boult and Colin de Grandhomme made the most of helpful conditions at Seddon Park as they shared 8 wickets between themselves with Todd Astle and James Neesham getting a wicket each.Boult, who bowled 10 overs on the trot, equalled legendary all-rounder Richard Hadlee’s record for the most five-wicket hauls (5) by a New Zealand bowler in ODIs thanks to his nearly-unplayable spell. He got the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya.De Grandhomme also managed to trouble the Indian batsmen by getting the ball to move in the air. The medium pacer broke India’s middle-order by removing Dinesh Karthik and Ambati Rayudu for 0. He also castled Bhuvneshwar Kumar to make sure the tail didn’t wag.Wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal then fought hard and stitched a 25-run partnership for the ninth wicket which ensured that India didn’t get bowled out for its lowest score in ODIs against New Zealand, which is 88.Stand-in captain Rohit certainly didn’t have a memorable time in what is also his 200th ODI. After losing the toss, he had said that India wanted to bat anyway in order to try and analyse a few things in the lead up to the World Cup.Not many expected the scorecard but India’s familiar batting woes failure to adapt to swing and seam were exposed by the New Zealand pacers who were relentlessly attacking the wickets.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

zoom Greek owner and operator of dry bulk and container ships Euroseas Ltd. reported USD 3.3 million net loss attributable to shareholders for the quarter ended June 30, as compared to net loss of USD 5.4 million for the second quarter of 2014.The company reported total net revenues of USD 9.4 million, a 2.8% decrease over total net revenues of USD 9.6 million during the second quarter of 2014.“The results of the second quarter of 2015 reflect the still low but improved levels of the containership and drybulk markets compared to the same quarter of 2014,” Tasos Aslidis, Chief Financial Officer of Euroseas, said.On average, Euroseas owned and operated 15 vessels during the second quarter of 2015, earning an average time charter equivalent rate of USD 7,127 per day, compared to 14.4 vessels in the same period of 2014, earning on average USD 7,373 per day.“We were pleased to see a recovery of the containership market during the second quarter of this year, which allowed us to re-charter several of our containerships at levels that generate positive cash flows,” Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas, said.”Furthermore, late in the quarter and during the month of July, drybulk rates also improved. While the near term supply/demand balance is challenging, especially, for the drybulk market, these rate increases took place at periods with traditionally seasonally low rates and may be an indication of a better overall rate environment.”
Kolkata: A Kolkata Police sergeant rushed inside a private nursing home on Diamond Harbour Road that had caught fire and managed to save eight newborn babies, risking his own life. Following the incident, the Kolkata Police uploaded a post on social networking site on Saturday morning acknowledging the valour of traffic sergeant Krishna Das who is currently posted at Diamond Harbour Traffic Guard. Police said a fire broke out at the main gate of Diamond View Nursing Home at around 11.35 am causing immense panic to mothers who had just given birth on Friday or the day before. The fire soon spread to an adjacent building where coaching classes were being held. Das rushed to the spot, doused the flame and rescued eight newborn infants and their panic-stricken mothers one after another. He eventually brought them downstairs and out in the open. Das also managed to get hold of a car to shift the mothers and their babies to another hospital. He also stopped an empty ambulance and made the driver ferry the other patients. By the time he sent the rescued victims to another hospital, a team of police officers from Diamond Harbour Traffic Guard arrived. They also helped students at the coaching centre to come out safely. No injuries have been reported. Fire officials brought the situation under control. A probe has been initiated. The preparedness and timely intervention of the police officer averted a major incident.
Kingston: India laboured their way to 72 for 2 under testing conditions after opener K L Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara were dismissed cheaply in the opening session of the second World Test Championship match against the West Indies here on Saturday. Rahul and Pujara were out for 13 and 6 respectively after India were put into bat on a Sabina Park pitch which had some grass on it. Captain Virat Kohli and the other opener Mayank Agarwal were batting at 41 off 99 balls and 5 off 30 deliveries respectively at the lunch break. India faced 30 overs in the session. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhAfter West Indies captain Jason Holder opted to field, Rahul and Agarwal negotiated the first half an hour without taking any risk on a tricky pitch. Opening bowlers Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel, however, could not get much movement from the pitch. Holder introduced himself in the seventh over and immediately got the breakthrough by having the wicket of Rahul to break the 32-run opening stand. It was a peach of a delivery which jagged away from middle stump with Rahul edging it to Rakheem Cornwall at first slip for a comfortable catch. Rahul hit two fours in his 26-ball innings. Holder was getting the bounce and movement and debutant Cornwall made the Indians toil for runs with his tight off-spin bowling. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterIndia were 36 for 1 in 13 overs at the drinks break. Pujara, who came after Rahul’s departure in the seventh over, struggled again as he took 15 deliveries to open his account and was finally out for 6 which came from 25 balls. The bounce extracted by 26-year-old off-spinner Cornwall, who stands at 6ft and 5 inches and weights more than 140kg, did brought Pujara’s downfall as he hit straight to the hands of Shamarh Brooks. India were 46 for 2 in the 17th over at the fall of Pujara but Kohli and Agarwal ensured that the visiting side do not lose any further wicket. The duo added 26 runs in 13.1 overs for the unbroken third wicket.
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Friday approved recording of statement of the Unnao rape survivor at the trauma centre of All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS).A notification to this effect was issued by the Delhi High Court from the administrative side late in the evening. It said special judge Dharmesh Sharma, who is conducting trial of the cases, shall record her testimony. The notification said that Chief Justice D N Patel and judges of the high court ordered that “Special Judge Dharmesh Sharma shall hold court for recording the testimony of the victim in the premises/building of trauma centre of AIIMS in addition to the Tiz Hazari District Court Complex during trial of the cases”. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The rape survivor is admitted at AIIMS after she sustained injuries during a road accident in which MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who was expelled from BJP, is an accused. She was air-lifted from a Lucknow hospital to Delhi on the orders of the Supreme Court. The notification came after the Supreme Court during the day asked the Delhi High Court to expeditiously decide on the request of a special judge for setting up a temporary court at the AIIMS hospital to record the statements of the Unnao rape survivor. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe special judge Dharmesh Sharma, who is holding trial in the cases related to the Unnao incident, had recently written a letter to the Delhi High Court seeking permission to hold in-camera proceedings at AIIMS for recording of the statement of the woman after doctors said it was “not advisable” to bring her to the court premises. Sharma has informed the Registrar General of the high court that the CBI, the woman and her family have “no objection” to such deposition. A bench of justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose also directed the CBI to complete within two weeks its probe and file the charge sheet in the road accident case, in which the rape survivor was injured. It also indicated that if the special judge needed more than 45 days to complete the proceedings, then it may consider the request. While transferring the cases related to Unnao incident to Delhi, the apex court had fixed a time limit of 45 days for the trial court to complete the proceedings. The apex court had earlier said it wanted “fair and speedy trial” in the cases arising out of the rape of the woman, when she was a minor, allegedly by now-expelled BJP legislator Kuldeep Singh Sengar in Unnao in 2017.
TORONTO – A Toronto police officer convicted of attempted murder in the shooting death of a troubled teen on an empty streetcar is seeking leave to bring his case before Canada’s top court.Const. James Forcillo fired two separate volleys at 18-year-old Sammy Yatim, who was standing alone and holding a small knife, in an incident that ignited public outrage after a bystander’s video came to light.In 2016, a jury acquitted Forcillo of the more serious charge of second-degree murder related to the first volley of shots — which killed the teen — but found him guilty of attempted murder related to the second hail of bullets, fired seconds later while Yatim was lying on his back.Lawyers for Forcillo challenged the ruling but Ontario’s top court dismissed the appeal in April.In upholding Forcillo’s conviction and sentence, Ontario’s Court of Appeal found Forcillo’s second round of shots was “clearly unnecessary and excessive.”His legal team is now seeking to challenge the appeal court decision, arguing that the first and second volleys were “artificially” divided into two separate events, leading to the separate charges.Michael Lacy, Joseph Wilkinson and Bryan Badali are asking the Supreme Court to decide whether prosecutors were required to prove that the first and second rounds of shots were two different “transactions.”They are also contesting Forcillo’s initial six-year sentence, which was a year longer than the mandatory minimum.In their application to the court, the lawyers write that mandatory minimum sentences are intended to deter people from committing crimes.But the lawyers argue that when someone carrying a firearm legally uses it in good faith — as they suggest Forcillo did — that person is not deterred because they believe they’re obeying the law and therefore would not go to prison.The Crown has 30 days to respond to the application.The court has said it takes an average of three months to decide on leave applications after they are filed.Forcillo recently had six months added to his sentence after pleading guilty to perjury. He had also been charged with breaching the conditions of his bail while awaiting the Ontario Court of Appeal decision, along with obstruction of justice, but those charges were dropped after he entered the guilty plea.
“The United Nations has always been supportive of the Afghan effort and we’ve worked with them over the years as a reliable partner and we will continue to do so, with the international community, in ensuring that the country is stabilized, and we will continue our work to strengthen their institutions.,” Mr. Annan told reporters at UN Headquarters in New York.Describing the “tragic” road accident that reportedly set off the riots, he said: “Crowds gathered and led to even greater disturbances, leading to deaths and injuries of many people. Lots of properties were damaged, including UN and international humanitarian workers.”The UN chief said he followed the development in Afghanistan with concern, adding that what happened in Kabul over the weekend was “symptomatic of perhaps deeper problems,” including the question of “drug cultivation and production” in that country.Mr. Annan said he spoke with the Afghan President Hamid Karzai and US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice about measures to help restore calm. “President Karzai believes that the situation is under control,” said Mr. Annan. “But we will continue to monitor it very closely.”The UN Secretary-General stressed the need to strengthen Afghanistan’s security forces and national institutions. “These (efforts) do take time and resources,” he said. “But we need to persevere.”
Experts from the Green River Rock and Mineral Festival led a group to Fossil Point on Saturday for a field trip through time. Fossil Point is nearly 15 miles, which equates to a 30-minute drive, from Green River.There, visitors can find hundreds of bones encased in rock that date back to the Jurassic era. The expert leading the group was Greg McDonald, a Bureau of Land Management paleontologist. He began the tour with a brief history of the surroundings. McDonald explained how the area used to be a river bed and went on to explain the different bones and fossils the group would come across during their exploring, including vertebrae, leg bones and fossilized clam beds.McDonald then turned the time over to local poet Dasha Bulatovo who read some of her poems from “Cairns,” which she wrote while an artist-in-residence in the Green River area.McDonald next took the group to a number of different areas to teach about how to identify bone from rock. The group then broke apart to explore on their own. Many bones were found throughout the area and McDonald explained what type of bone it was and from what dinosaur.
SEA ISLAND, Ga. — Seattle’s NHL expansion team has its roots in Dave Tippett’s computer.That’s where the longtime coach-turned-senior adviser keeps a running list of players around the league who might be available in an expansion draft that is still 2 1/2 years off. It is just an exercise for now but will become a key building block when Seattle picks its first players in June 2021.“Every year it’ll change a little bit,” Tippett said. “By the time it gets here, you’ll have a pretty good idea of where you think teams are going to fall.”Long months are ahead before the as-yet-named team plays its first meaningful game, but work is already under way and the effort can begin in earnest now that the NHL Board of Governors has officially awarded Seattle a franchise. Groundbreaking on a total overhaul of KeyArena is Wednesday, and Seattle’s front office will spend the rest of this season plotting the course for an organization that has a tough act to follow after Vegas reached the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season.“Part of the DNA of this ownership group is we’re extremely competitive,” said Tod Leiweke, a minority partner, president and CEO of Seattle Hockey Partners. “We’re here to win. And we want to win. So we’re going to look at these timelines and how it can be put to our advantage.”That means Tippett will watch the rest of this season with an eye on the new team’s future and he will sketch out the beginnings of a hockey operations department. He will likely be senior vice-president of hockey operations and have a big say in choosing the first general manager of the league’s 32nd team.Tippett will likely hire some scouts this summer and move forward on the GM search.“When you’re a year or two out, everything continues to evolve,” Tippett said. “You continue to monitor things. It’s an ever-changing world out there right now in the hockey world between coaches and GMs.”Veteran Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland is considered a potential candidate, and Vegas assistant Kelly McCrimmon would know the recipe for a successful expansion draft after helping George McPhee put the Golden Knights together. The same rules will be in place that allow teams to protect only seven forwards, three defencemen and a goaltender, or eight skaters at any position and a goaltender.That means for $650 million, Seattle will have an opportunity to win right away.“It gives you an excitement that you can have a team that’s not your expansion teams of the past with the NHL rules,” Tippett said. “You can have a competitive team like Vegas. Nobody expected that from them. But it’s not as if you’re in a five-year rebuild or five-year starting point. You actually can get some good players because of the rules.”Leiweke is friends with McPhee and Golden Knights president Kerry Bubolz, and said his new team will build “brick-by-brick” like Vegas did.First, there are real bricks. Majority owner David Bonderman said the immediate focus is on getting arena renovations and three-rink practice facility construction completed. Leiweke expects the 17,000-seat downtown arena to open in March or April 2021 and host the expansion draft.Tippett has a hand in all those projects and is also working to settle Seattle’s American Hockey League affiliate.And he and the ownership group will, at some point, go on a hiring spree to try to replicate Vegas’ success.“We have momentum, and this is a business of recruitment,” Leiweke said. “We now really feel confident that we’ll be able to recruit a top-flight staff. And we need to, because this is the most competitive league in the world, and parity is the trademark of the National Hockey League today. So we’re going to have to be really, really good at recruiting, but our owners are going to give us everything we need.”___Follow AP Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno on Twitter at https://twitter.com/SWhyno___More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsStephen Whyno, The Associated Press
Mondo Minerals has awarded Tenova Bateman Sub-Saharan Africa the front end engineering design (FEED) contract for the on-site refining of nickel concentrates into a mixed nickel cobalt hydroxide product (MHP) at its existing Vuonos talc concentrator at Talkkitie, Finland. The award of the FEED contract follows the successful completion of the prefeasibility and definitive feasibility studies for the plant by Tenova Mining and Minerals in Australia, in conjunction with the South African minerals research organization, Mintek.Mondo generates the nickel concentrates as a co-product of talc production, but the long-term economically viable offtake agreement for these has to date been limited, as they contain impurities, which makes treatment through conventional smelting difficult. However, using a bioleaching process developed specifically by Mintek, the plant will treat 12,000 t/y of nickel concentrate from Mondo’s two talc operations in Finland, Sotkamo and Vuonos, to produce approximately 1,000 t/y of nickel in MHP. The MHP is to be sold to nickel refineries or directly to the stainless steel industry.The plant will be highly automated and designed to withstand the tough winter conditions of Finland.Tenova Bateman Sub-Saharan Africa is liaising with Finnish civil contractors, and is assisting in the technical aspects to obtain the Finnish construction permit for the contractor to start with the early civil and earthworks on site.“The Tenova Mining & Minerals Group’s recognized bioleaching processing experience and its well established working relationship with Mintek positioned us well to win this important award,” said Tollie Nel, Managing Director of Tenova Bateman Sub-Saharan Africa. “The project is also a good example of Tenova Mining & Minerals’ capability to draw on the world class technological expertise across its global organization to deliver a solution that fully satisfies the client’s needs.”
Tinka Resources Ltd reports an updated Mineral Resources estimate for its 100%-owned Ayawilca zinc and tin deposits in Peru. Part of the Zinc Zone Mineral Resource is now classified as Indicated, incorporating a higher-grade portion of the deposit. In addition, the updated Inferred Mineral Resource is of a similar size and grade to the previous Zinc Zone resource reported in November 2017. The updated Tin Zone Inferred Mineral Resource is also substantially larger. This resources update follows a very successful drilling program, with the company completing approximately 20,000 m during 2018. The map shows major mines in central Peru.Indicated Zinc Zone Mineral Resource of 11.7 Mt grading 6.9% Zn, 0.16% Pb, 84 g/t In and 15 g/t Ag (8.1% ZnEq)Inferred Zinc Zone Mineral Resource of 45.0 Mt grading 5.6% Zn, 0.23% Pb, 67 g/t In and 17 g/t Ag (6.7% ZnEq)Inferred Tin Mineral Resource of 14.5 Mt grading 0.63% Sn, 0.21% Cu, and 18 g/t Ag (0.70% SnEq).The Tin Zone and Zinc Zone resources do not overlap. The Mineral Resources are reported above an NSR cut-off value of $55/t, as estimated by Roscoe Postle Associates.Dr. Graham Carman, Tinka’s President and CEO, stated: “We are very pleased with the updated mineral resources estimation, as the Ayawilca deposit now represents one of the largest zinc resources held in a non-producing resources company. Ayawilca has for the first time, a high-grade Zinc Zone resource in the Indicated category containing 1.8 billion pounds of zinc (24% of the total zinc inventory), as well as an Inferred resource containing 5.6 billion pounds of zinc (76% of the total zinc inventory). Zinc resources were able to be partially upgraded to Indicated in those areas due to infill drilling at West and South Ayawilca in 2018. In addition, the Tin Zone resource has increased by 38% and now contains over 200 million pounds of tin. The updated Tin Zone resource is believed to be the largest undeveloped tin resource outside of a producing camp in Peru.”“Tinka has had a very successful year at Ayawilca, expanding and upgrading the resources. We now look forward to completing our maiden PEA in the first half of 2019. Additional potential still exists for resource growth at Ayawilca, with additional step-out and deeper exploration drilling planned for 2019. The company’s work programs are fully funded into the foreseeable future, with C$13 million in cash and no debt as at the end of September 2018.”

Le lancement d’un ballon subspatial échoue en SuèdeLe centre spatiale d’Esrange, en Suède, a été contraint de ramener au sol le gigantesque ballon subsaptial expérimental qui avait été lancé dans la nuit de mercredi à jeudi en raison d’une fuite d’hélium.Le PoGOLite (Polarised Gamma-ray Observer) est un télescope de deux tonnes suspendu à un énorme ballon gonflable rempli d’un million de mètres cubes d’hélium. Ce ballon subspatial suédois a été lâché du centre spatial d’Esrange, dans l’extrême Nord de la Suède, à 23h57 GMT. Malheureusement, l’engin a dû être ramené au sol cinq heures plus tard après être monté jusqu’à 35 kilomètres en raison d’une fuite d’hélium.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESA”Nous l’avons lancé sans aucun problème, mais nous avons été contraints de le ramener au sol. Il fuyait et perdait de l’altitude”, a déclaré à l’AFP Johanna Bergström-Roos, une porte-parole du centre spatial. “Ce sont des choses qui arrivent”, a-t-elle dit. Le ballon stratosphérique devait normalement être stabilisé à 38 kilomètres d’altitude et dériver vers l’Ouest en direction de la Norvège, de l’Islande, du Groenland et du Canada. L’objectif initial prévoyait même de le faire survoler l’Alaska et la Russie, avant de revenir en Suède moins de trois semaines plus tard.Le PoGoLite avait pour mission d’étudier les rayons émis par les étoiles à neutrons, les trous noirs et les pulsars. “Nous sommes très déçus, et nous espérons que la gondole[transportant l’équipement scientifique] est intacte”, ont déclaré les responsables du projet sur leur site internet.

Elle peut alors profiter à un ami grâce à une connexion sans fil, probablement du Bluetooth. Autrement, le casque fermé permet à l’auditeur de s’isoler des bruits environnants. Voilà donc une idée géniale qui permet au casque d’être utilisé de manière traditionnelle et de se dédoubler si le besoin s’en fait sentir.Le concepteur du casque est étudiant à la Design Academy d’Eindhoven. Il est donc l’auteur de cette prouesse technique. D’ailleurs il es guère étonnant que le casque en question ait été fabriqué par un amateur de design. Car celui-ci est franchement réussi.On lui souhaite que son œuvre soit commercialisée prochainement.Le 12 mars 2012 à 09:45 • Maxime Lambert
A few years ago, an examination of the Yakima County Jail showed more than 60 percent of its inmates were awaiting trial. Officials started looking at how to reduce that percentage.In 2013, the Eastern Washington county was chosen as a site to test a Justice Department-affiliated initiative to reduce the number of people in its jail who had not yet been convicted. So far the results seem promising.Under the old system, Yakima County Superior Court Judge Richard Bartheld explained, he’d typically see those arrested in a first appearance the next “judicial day” after they’d been arrested. At that hearing, the arrested parties would appear on their own and answer some basic questions. Only rarely would they have an attorney.Then, usually based on little more than their answers, the prosecutor’s statements and what was in the preliminary police report, Bartheld would make a call on whether to release the defendant, set bail, or jail him.“One of my concerns as a judge in Yakima County was I wasn’t getting good information to make informed decisions on release decisions,” Bartheld said.
Pep Guardiola has singled out Eric Garcia for praise, describing the young defender as “incredible” and “intelligent”.Garcia, 18, has made two senior appearances for City this season and Guardiola has been impressed with the Spaniard, who could be in line to play in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg at Burton Albion.“I can count on him,” Guardiola said via the club’s website.“He showed me an incredible personality in the Carabao Cup [games against Leicester and Burton], and especially in preseason when he played with younger players.“It’s easier when you are a young player to come in and play close to Nico [Otamendi], or David Silva or Kevin [De Bruyne] – but play there with six, seven young academy players, and he was really the captain, and he guides and he leads in three hard games.Manchester City teenagers that could face Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup Semi-Final 2nd Leg:• Ian Carlo Poveda (18)• Iker Pozo (18)• Taylor Richards (18)• Felix Nmecha (18)• Eric Garcia (18) pic.twitter.com/M4BevIaGAgMourinho knows why City and Liverpool are so far ahead George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Jose Mourinho knows why Manchester City and Liverpool are so far ahead of everyone else in the Premier League.In an interview with the Telegraph,…— City Xtra (@City_Xtra) January 21, 2019“He was incredibly good. In the Carabao Cup he was good. But he’s young. Is he a third, fourth defender, one more year in academy, or do we loan? We are going to decide in the next months what happens next season.“But I am incredibly satisfied, not just with the games but the way he trains, his behaviour, how polite he is, how he listens, how when he has doubts, he always asks myself, my staff, Mikel [Arteta].“He is so smart, so intelligent. He understands everything so quick. His physicality is not so strong, but he resolves situations by thinking.“I like to work with intelligent people and he is one of them.”

And only 54 magazines reported ad page gains of more than 10 percent. Publishers who appear to be having the toughest time: Scientific American, down 45.5 percent in ad pages (to $5.12 million) and 41.7 percent in PIB ad revenue; U.S. News and World Report, down 37.5 percent in ad pages, 34.8 percent in ad revenue; Rolling Stone, down 32.6 percent in pages and 26.7 percent in revenue (to $31.24 million, compared to $42.6 million in the first quarter of 2007); the recently-sold gay-and-lesbian title Advocate, down 30.3 percent in ad pages, 22.4 percent in ad revenue; Coastal Living, down 41.1 percent in ad pages, 35.3 percent in revenue; AARP, down 23.8 percent in ad pages; Entertainment Weekly, down 20.7 percent in ad pages; and National Geographic and SI’s “For Kids” editions, down 49.2 and 42.8 percent in ad pages, respectively.Some magazines, however, managed to buck the downward advertising trend: OK! magazine’s ad pages increased 37.9 percent (to 168.61) and a nearly 50 percent ad revenue increase ($13.66 million); Everyday with Rachael Ray, up 38.1 percent in ad pages, over 81 percent in ad revenue (to $17.98 million); Guideposts, up 36.6 percent in ad pages, 38.9 percent in ad revenue; Rolling Stone’s brotherly title, Men’s Journal, up 21.7 percent in ad pages; and Fast Company, up 29 percent in ad pages, 35.5 percent in revenue.Ad pages for Entrepreneur, which is looking for buyers, dropped 7.2 percent in the first quarter; PIB ad revenue ($25.4 million) slid 5.8 percent.TOUGH TIMES AARP-THE MAGAZINE84.98111.48-23.8 AUTOWEEK7,760,0919,732,000-20.3 DIABETES FOCUS1,915,0272,095,109-8.6 GOLF FOR WOMEN2,736,6123,720,514-26.4 GOURMET180.41229.10-21.3 The Publishers Information Bureau released its quarterly report this morning, and, unsurprisingly, consumer magazine publishers are having a tougher time selling ads in 2008 than they did in 2007.Total rate-card-reported advertising revenue fell 1.2 percent during the first three months of the year. But ad pages—considered the more telling statistic, given the discounts many magazine publishers give to frequent advertisers—fell 6.4 percent.Softness in the automotive and home furnishing ad categories “indicate that the down economy has affected ad spending in magazines,” says Ellen Oppenheim, executive vice president and Chief marketing officer at the Magazine Publishers of America.
