New Delhi, Nov 23 (PTI) The All India Football Federation (AIFF) will seek fresh tenders for clubs aspiring to be part of I-League 2016-17 as it evaluated bids from three interested parties following the withdrawal of Sporting Clube de Goa from the league. The decision was taken after the AIFFs bids evaluation committee met here today. The committee “evaluated and discussed at length” about the three bids from Minerva Academy FC, FC Bardez Goa and Chennai City FC who have expressed willingness to ply their trade in the next edition of the league. Upon evaluation, the committee decided to go for a “fresh round of tendering”. Sporting Clube de Goa yesterday announced their decision to withdraw from the forthcoming I-League season, and Salgaocar are already ineligible to compete in it. There are reports of former national champions Dempo, who won the second division title earlier this year, also mulling a pull-out. Kushal Das said, “Its truly heartening to see these three clubs, that too from different states across the nation, showing their enthusiasm to play in the Hero I-League. This actually highlights that were heading towards a bright future of Indian Football, involving every nook and corner of the country.” Referring to the decision of Sporting Clube de Goa to officially pull out from the next I-League, Das called it “very unfortunate and sad”. “Sporting Clube de Goa have contributed significantly to Indian Football since their inception. Its really sad to see them withdrawing from Hero I-League now,” Das said. Sporting Clube de Goa withdrew owing to “strong objections” to the proposed road map by AIFF and its marketing partners IMG-Reliance for Indian football. The bids committee comprised of general secretary Kushal Das, senior vice-president Subrata Dutt and I-League CEO Sunando Dhar. PTI AH PDS SSCadvertisement
Neymar has revealed that he predicted he would score two goals in Barcelona’s history-making 6-1 Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain back in 2017.Trailing 4-0 after being humbled in the first leg in France, Barca returned to Camp Nou in need of a miracle.And, after producing a sensational performance in the return meeting, they pulled off what seemed to be the impossible to put six past the French side and advance to the quarter-finals. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Neymar, however, claims that he always knew the Blaugrana would win at home and that he would play his part in turning a disastrous first-leg result on its head.”Two of my friends said that PSG had a great team – and they did – and that they had already qualified, this and that…” the 27-year-old told DAZN.”But I got up and said: ‘You are my friends, you work with me, but it seems you don’t believe we can turn this game around. We will reverse this situation, and I promise you two goals’.”We had trained in the morning and I saw each player’s face. Everyone was happy, nobody was down or worried about reversing the situation against PSG. We knew it would be very difficult to reverse the game. “Our conversation was about playing football as it had always been Barcelona’s play to display good football, to turn a football game into a show. “We knew we would win. We didn’t know if we would go through to the next round, but we knew we would win because we knew we would play our part very well.“When the game began, it started with a different vibe. I was challenging everyone, running more than ever. It was one of, if not the biggest match I’ve ever played in and one of the most emotional.”We scored the first two goals quickly so we were thrilled. We went into half-time 2-0 up with two more goals to score. The team we had was different – we didn’t go about screaming in the dressing room. No, it was a conversation. “We were very calm, very focused, relaxed and the only conversation I remember having was: ‘Keep calm, let’s do it goal by goal’. We were not worried about going into the next round. I think that’s why we played really well that day. We were not desperate. We were quiet and focused.”The atmosphere after the second goal was different. We saw that the fans were believing. They kept shouting, encouraging us.”When we scored the third goal, it was Leo [Messi] who scored. I won the penalty, he scored it. The fans were on fire and we thought: ‘Let’s go, now we’re going to go through’.”At that moment, we suffered a blow, [Edinson] Cavani’s goal. When we conceded the goal, we saw everyone was half-hearted, doing that face: ‘We’re f*cked’. It became more difficult, it was practically impossible. Everyone thought we would score another, but now we had to score three.“We still tried to keep playing our football, to continue to score goals, to see what would happen. We just hoped not to concede any more goals. One goal had already complicated things because we had to score three. Two? Forget about it.”I still believed. I still wanted to score those two goals I promised to my friends. Oh, it gives me shivers, a lot of strong emotions definitely.”With 88 minutes gone, Neymar curled a spectacular free-kick into the top-left corner to deliver the first half of his promise and take the score 4-1 in Barca’s favour, although it remained 5-4 to PSG on aggregate. Moments later, Luis Suarez won a penalty and it was the Brazilian who was charged with the responsibility to take it.”I was going to give it to Leo, but Leo told me to take the penalty,” Neymar recalled. “He said: ‘No, you go’. I said: ‘Me?’ He said: ‘Yes, you do it’.”My only thought was that I could not miss that penalty, because if I missed the penalty I would end the stadium’s dream of going through to the next round.”It was the most I’ve ever focused on a penalty, and thank God I managed to score. I kept the promise of two goals. That was the moment I thought we had it. I asked Leo: ‘Why did you let me take that penalty?'”He said: ‘I felt at that moment that you would score the goal, that you were more confident’. I think he had that feeling, and it turned out alright. The penalty brought the possibility, the strength, to score the sixth goal.”Only seconds remained of second-half injury time as Barca pushed for a match-winning strike and it was Neymar himself who engineered the move to send Sergi Roberto through on goal to complete one of the greatest Champions League comebacks ever.“In that game, the most striking goal was Sergi Roberto’s,” Neymar said. “It was the goal that made us go through. It’s the goal that will be remembered in history and I’m happy to have made the move, but his goal was special – that’s when the Camp Nou exploded. “That was the most important goal. I think that, in terms of excitement, in terms of making everyone crazy, that was one of the most important goals in Barcelona history.”I wasn’t crying, I was over the moon! It was crazy. I had never seen Camp Nou like that. After the sixth goal, the explosion was huge, both for the players and the fans. It was something that I don’t think I’ll ever live through again.”That’s why I’ll remember it for the rest of my life.”You can watch the full series of The Making Of exclusively on DAZN .
Advertisement Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment With backing from longtime Hollywood player Sandy Climan, Canadian entrepreneur Khaled Sabawi has quietly launched Open Screenplay as a free online platform for aspiring screenwriters.Open Screenplay is aimed at helping writers create better stories through its story-writing process and tools. It has launched a contest with a $2,000 prize and has more than 100 screenplays in various stages on the site, including “My Alien Fiance,” “Blood Safari,” and “Butterfly Blades.”“I genuinely believe technology should be used to improve industries that inhibit the emergence of new artists,” Sabawi said. “For so many aspiring writers like myself, there are no next steps once their screenplay is written, simply because they don’t know the right people. My goal in creating Open Screenplay is to change that so the world we see depicted in television and film can be as diverse and amazing as the world we live in.” Sabawi hopes to democratize the screenwriting process, given that 50,000 screenplays are submitted to the Writers Guild of America every year and only 150 are actually made by Hollywood. The genesis of Open Screenplay came when Sabawi worked on a pilot for a series taking place during the Arab Spring for an international network based in Dubai.

by Mae Anderson, The Associated Press Posted Oct 25, 2013 5:36 am MDT Detergent, diaper sales help lift P&G profit by 8 per cent, matching expectations AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Procter & Gamble’s fiscal first-quarter net income rose 8 per cent as the world’s largest consumer products company sold more of its detergent and diapers globally and cut costs.The results were in line with Wall Street expectations and the company reaffirmed its 2014 forecast.The Cincinnati-based company, whose products range from Tide detergent to Crest toothpaste and Gillette razors, is in the midst of a turnaround plan that includes focusing on its most profitable core businesses and cutting costs to save $10 billion by fiscal 2016.In the developed markets such as the U.S. and Europe, P&G has been trying to adjust its prices to stay competitive, cutting prices on some products and raising prices on others. P&G said it held or grew market share in two-thirds of its product categories globally, and two-thirds to 70 per cent of categories in North America.But CFO Jon Moeller that there are some brands in its beauty segment that need to do better, specifically its Oil Of Olay skin care business, North American Pantene hair products and its Salon professional businesses.“I will readily admit we have more work to do,” he said in a call with analysts.P&G is also working on localizing its supply chains to save money.“We’re continuing to work on North America and European supply chain redesign to lower-cost, reduce inventory and improve customer service,” Moeller said. “This work will require additional investment in both restructuring and capital, but should generate very attractive returns.”Net income for the three months ended Sept. 30 after paying preferred dividends rose to $3.03 billion, or $1.04 per share. That compares with net income of $2.81 billion, or 96 cents per share, last year. Excluding one-time items net income was $1.05 per share, matching analyst expectations, according to FactSet.Revenue rose 2 per cent to $21.2 billion from $20.74 billion. Analysts expected revenue of $21 billion.Total volume rose 4 per cent as increases in beauty, fabric care and home care, and baby, feminine and family care categories was offset by declines in grooming and health care.P&G reiterated its 2014 guidance of earnings excluding one-time items to rise 5 per cent to 7 per cent, implying results of $4.25 to $4.33 per share. It expects revenue to rise 1 per cent to 2 per cent, implying revenue of $85 billion to $85.85 billion. Analysts expect earnings of $4.29 per share on revenue of $85.71 billion.Oppenheimer & Co. Joseph Altobello said that while he is “encouraged” by “healthy” growth in sales and volume, P&G’s turnaround will take time, and the future improvement is already reflected in the stock price. He kept his “Perform,” rating on the stock.Shares fell 65 cents to $79.96 in morning trading. The stock has risen 19 per cent since the beginning of the year.

Dublin Zoo has announced the birth of a Goeldi monkey, the first at the zoo for years.The baby monkey, who is being held so closely by its mother that zookeepers haven’t yet identified its gender, was born on 24 May and weighs around 20 grams.The Goeldi’s monkey feeds on fruit, vegetables, insects and bird eggs. The primate is native to South America’s tropical rainforest, with most of the species in the wild located in Peru. They can blend so well into their natural surroundings that the species was only first described in 1904.Zookeeper Susan O’Brien says the zoo is “delighted” with the new arrival, who is settling in well: The tiny monkey has been keeping close to its mother since its birth last month. Source: Patrick Bolger“In a couple of weeks we should be able to get close enough to determine the newborn’s gender but for now we are happy for the family to bond and get to know each other,” the zookeeper added.Dublin Zoo and sponsors Kellogg’s Coco Pops are celebrating the new monkey’s arrival with a ‘Monkey Moments Weekend’ of special events around the South American House on 28 and 29 June. The zoo is open seven days a week, from 9.30am to 5.30pm. Inca, the mother, arrived to Dublin Zoo in 2012 from Banham Zoo in the UK and although it is her first offspring she is taking to her new role as a mum very well. She is keeping the newborn very close to her at the moment and swinging around the habitat with her new baby on her back.

Just weeks before voters decide the future make up of the U.S. Senate, Bethel residents heard what might be the start of the final push by the incumbent Senator.Download AudioBegich is trailing Republican challenger Dan Sullivan in several polls and is gambling on gaining an edge off the beaten path.“So I make it very clear that rural Alaska and more specifically Alaska Native people will determine the outcome of this election, no question about it,” said Begich.Begich’s campaign repeats that statement over and over, including in a friendly reception at the annual Association of Village Council Presidents Convention in Bethel Thursday. He hopes delegates and volunteers there will bring his pitch to 56 villages, but he’s also banking on a small paid staff. Begich stopped at his Bethel field office, one of 16, which are responsible for delivering votes in the Y-K Delta and the Aleutian chain.A couple dozen supporters eat chili and sign up volunteers for door knocking calling at a table full of berry buckets with his logo on them. Bethel resident Betsy Taguchi signed on to help.“I think the race might be close, we could be the tipping point we’ve been a little, sit back about things over the years, and haven’t gotten out the vote the way we could have, and I think this year needs to be different,” said Taguchi.Republican challenger Dan Sullivan is slated to make his first campaign stop in the Delta in the next couple weeks. His wife, Julie Fate Sullivan attended the AVCP convention and campaigned locally.As Begich leaves his campaign office to catch the jet back to Anchorage, he contrasts his ground presence with his opponent’s and lists his visits over the years“I was out here when I was [Anchorage] mayor, I was out here as an assembly member almost 25 years, ago, it’s a great community. I’ve been in the great parade on the 4th of July parade that starts on one end and it ends in the same place,” said Begich.Begich did well on the Kuskowkwim in his 2008 election, winning over Senator Ted Stevens by a two-to-one margin in the region. He stands to gain from more turnout and is pushing hard for early voting, which starts October 20th. He says his ground game for election day is high tech and low tech.“Our people who work for us and volunteers will be working the vote and the people every single day as soon as early voting starts. It’s not as simple as dial up and call people, that will be part of it, some will physically go to their doors and remind them, especially in small communities.”Election day is November 4th.
Sources further added saying, “The meeting is likely to discuss an array of equipment including assault rifles ammunition and combat free fall parachutes for the Special Forces units of the Parachute Regiment of the Army. If the proposal goes through, the equipment would be acquired from the United States in a government-to-government deal under the Foreign Military Sales route.”Additionally, Indian Army is planning to buy more carbines in the form of Belgian rifles for its elite forces particularly for the Special Protection Group (SPG) guarding the Prime Minister, which are easier to carry. The Indian Army is desperately trying to modernize its Army including its special forces which have been eliminating terrorists in the northeast and J&K region of the country.

Interestingly, since 2008, the US has bagged more than $18 billion in arms contracts from India including the C-17 Globemaster and C-130J transport planes, P-8 (I) maritime reconnaissance aircraft, M777 light-weight howitzer, Harpoon missiles and Apache and Chinook helicopters.It is to be noted that only last month India signed a fast-tracked contract for procurement of 72,400 assault rifles from a US-based company Sig Sauer. The entire quantity of 72,400 rifles will be delivered within 12 months of the date of signing of the contract.

Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology Group, which recently announced that it would set up around 10 to 12 manufacturing units in India, is planning to tie up with Gujarat-based Adani Group to start at least four electronics manufacturing plants in the country.Earlier this month, senior executives of Apple iPhone assembler Foxconn toured a few states such as Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat to scout for sites suitable for manufacturing units, The Times of India reported.Vincent Tong Wen-Hsin, chairman and director of investments at Foxconn International Holdings (FIH) Mobile, and CEO of the company Calvin Chih reportedly held extensive talks with the Karnataka government.”It could become a $5-billion investment. They visited some other states too. We are hoping that Karnataka’s talent pool and fiscal incentives would make them decide to locate a facility here,” said a Karnataka government official.Earlier, Foxconn had said it would set up 10 to 12 manufacturing units in India by 2020. The electronics contract manufacturer seems to be in discussions with its top client Apple on the proposed investments in India.”A lot of our customers, especially Chinese customers, need us to manufacture … in India, to make phones, tablets, TVs, as soon as possible,” Foxconn group chairman Terry Gou told Reuters in May.Each facility is expected to employ at least 10,000 people and the company plans to invest about $2 billion (₹12,700 crore) towards setting up these facilities over the next five years, The Economic Times reported.”We are talking to Foxconn almost every week to get them to Karnataka. Under our mega projects policy, we can tailor-make incentives for them,” a Karnataka government official said.The Taiwanese tech giant has reportedly started its operations at a leased facility in Sri City, located in southern part of Andhra Pradesh. The plant is expected to produce 10,000 phones per day for Chinese handset vendo Xiaomi Corp.
president Donald Trump. File PhotoPresident Donald Trump’s relentless drive to be given credit for all manner of things suffused his speech to Michigan supporters this past week.These efforts are largely familiar by now: He counts job gains from the Obama era as his own, rebrands his predecessor’s veterans health care initiative as a Trump achievement, attributes auto factory expansion long in the making to his leadership, and hails a Republican rescue of health care that has not materialized.But there was a new one on Thursday night. “We have some breaking news!” he said. “Can you handle it? I don’t think you can handle it.”He then declared that after decades of failure by lawmakers to get money to clean up the Great Lakes, he was coming ahead with $300 million for that effort. The crowd roared.But the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative was getting that money already . Trump had proposed slashing it.A look at his recent rhetoric:Migrant ChildrenTRUMP, on the care of migrant children apprehended at the border and the Dec. 8 death of Jakelin Caal Maquin, 7, of Guatemala: “I think that it’s been very well stated that we’ve done a fantastic job. … The father gave the child no water for a long period of time – he actually admitted blame.” — to reporters Friday.THE FACTS: That’s a misrepresentation of the circumstances behind the girl’s death as Trump seeks to steer any potential blame for it away from his administration.An autopsy report released Friday found she died of a bacterial infection just more than a day after being apprehended by the US Border Patrol. The El Paso County Medical Examiner’s office said Jakelin experienced a “rapidly progressive infection” that led to the failure of multiple organs.Neither the autopsy report, nor accounts at the time by Customs and Border Protection , spoke of dehydration. The Border Protection timeline on her case said she was checked for medical problems upon her apprehension and: “The initial screening revealed no evidence of health issues.” And through family lawyers, Nery Gilberto Caal Cuz said after his daughter’s death that he had made sure she had food and water as they traveled through Mexico. He did not say her death was his fault.Great LakesTRUMP: “I support the Great Lakes. Always have. They are beautiful. They are big, very deep, record deepness, right? And I’m going to get, in honor of my friends, full funding of $300 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which you have been trying to get for over 30 years. So we will get it done.” — Grand Rapids rally.THE FACTS: Trump’s recent budget proposal sought to cut federal financing of that program by 90 percent. His comment actually meant that his administration would — presumably — give up its efforts over the last few years to cut the program, which has been receiving about $300 million a year since 2010.His assertion that this money has eluded supporters of the lakes for three decades is wrong.The program is popular with lawmakers from both parties and it was unlikely that the Trump cut would prevail.Also, the Great Lakes are not the world’s deepest, or even among the 20 deepest .Special OlympicsTRUMP: “I have overridden my people. We’re funding the Special Olympics.” — remarks to reporters Thursday.THE FACTS: In this instance, unlike in the Great Lakes matter, Trump is acknowledging that it was his administration that had proposed to cut the money, though by blaming “my people” he did not take direct responsibility.In any event, spending is up to Congress, not him. What he means is that the White House is dropping its budget proposal to deny federal money for the games.Health CareTRUMP: “We will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions, always.” — Michigan rally.THE FACTS: He’s not protecting health coverage for patients with pre-existing medical conditions. In fact, the Trump administration is pressing in court for full repeal of the Affordable Care Act — including provisions that protect people with pre-existing conditions from health insurance discrimination.Trump and other Republicans say they’ll have a plan to preserve those safeguards, but the White House has provided no details. And it’s a stretch to think they could get a Republicans-only plan passed through Congress with the House under Democratic control.President Barack Obama’s health care law requires insurers to take all applicants, regardless of medical history, and patients with health problems pay the same standard premiums as healthy ones. Bills supported in 2017 by Trump and congressional Republicans to repeal the law could have pushed up costs for people with pre-existing conditions.TRUMP: “The Republican Party will become the party of great health care. … Republicans want you to have an affordable plan that’s just right for you.” — Michigan rally.TRUMP: “If the Supreme Court rules that Obamacare is out, we will have a plan that’s far better than Obamacare.” — remarks Wednesday to reporters.THE FACTS: Republicans may aspire to great health care but they don’t have a comprehensive plan for it. And there’s no indication that the White House, executive branch agencies like Health and Human Services, and Republicans in Congress are working on one.Trump’s recent budget called for repealing “Obamacare” and setting hard limits on federal spending for Medicaid, which covers low-income people. Some Republicans argue that would be better, because the federal government would create a new program of health care grants to states. But when the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office analyzed similar proposals a couple of years ago, it estimated such changes would result in deep coverage losses, not to mention weaker insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions.Trump’s budget also called for hundreds of billions of dollars in Medicare cuts to hospitals and other service providers, a nonstarter with lawmakers in Congress worried about re-election next year.The Supreme Court has upheld the health care law twice in previous challenges. The five justices who first upheld it in 2012 are still on the court.Congressional Republicans are generally trying to steer away from Obamacare spats. Some are trying to focus on areas where they might find common ground with Democrats and the president, such as reducing prescription drug costs.Russia InvestigationTRUMP: “You look at all of the different things, Russia would’ve much rather had Hillary than Donald Trump. I can tell you that right now.” — Fox News interview Wednesday.THE FACTS: Not according to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Asked at a news conference with Trump in July whether he wanted Trump to win the 2016 election, Putin responded, “Yes, I did.” Putin said he favored Trump “because he talked about bringing the US-Russia relationship back to normal.”The Republican-led Senate intelligence committee last year said it agreed with the US intelligence agencies’ assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to hurt the candidacy of Democrat Hillary Clinton and help Trump.TRUMP: “After three years of lies and smears and slander, the Russia hoax is finally dead. The collusion delusion is over. The special counsel completed its report and found no collusion and no obstruction. …Total exoneration, complete vindication.” — Michigan rally.THE FACTS: Special counsel Robert Mueller did not vindicate Trump in “total” in the Russia probe.Mueller’s exact words in the report, as quoted by Attorney General William Barr, say: “While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”The four-page summary by Barr notes Mueller did not “draw a conclusion — one way or the other — as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction,” but rather set out evidence for both sides, leaving the question unanswered of whether Trump obstructed justice. Barr wrote in the summary that ultimately he decided as attorney general that the evidence developed by Mueller was “not sufficient” to establish, for the purposes of prosecution, that Trump committed obstruction.Barr’s summary also notes that Mueller did not find that the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to tip the 2016 presidential election in Trump’s favor. To establish a crime, Mueller must generally meet a standard of proving an offense beyond a reasonable doubt. The summary did not clear the president of improper behavior regarding Russia but did not establish that “he was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference,” Mueller said in a passage from the report quoted by Barr.The summary signed by Barr gave the bottom line only as he and his deputy saw it. Democrats are pushing for release of Mueller’s full report, which is more than 300 pages. Barr is expected to release a public version of the document in the coming weeks.TRUMP, speaking about allegations in a so-called dossier about contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election: “It came out after the election and everybody had a big fat yawn. …All of the sudden I hear, ‘Were you involved with Russia? I say, ‘Russia? What the hell does Russia have to do with my campaign?'” — Michigan rally.THE FACTS: Russia actually had plenty to do with Trump’s campaign.According to US intelligence agencies and lengthy indictments brought by Mueller’s team, Putin ordered a multipart influence campaign aimed at hurting Clinton’s candidacy, undermining American democracy and helping Trump get elected.That effort included the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, Clinton’s campaign and other Democratic groups. Russian intelligence officers then coordinated the release of stolen emails and internal documents.There were also plenty of people around Trump receptive to Russia’s help, though Mueller’s report ultimately did not find that those contacts amounted to a criminal conspiracy, according to Barr’s summary.In the middle of the campaign, Donald Trump Jr. met at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer thinking he would be getting “dirt” on Clinton. Trump Jr. agreed to the meeting, which included Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, despite it being described to him as part of a Russian government effort to help his father.AutosTRUMP: “We are bringing a lot of those car companies back. … They are pouring back in.” —Michigan rally.TRUMP: “We’re opening up car plants in Michigan again for the first time in decades. They’re coming in, really pouring in. … And this has been happening pretty much since I’ve been president. It’s really amazing what’s going on … We’ve brought back so much industry, so many car companies to Michigan, so we’re very happy.” — remarks Thursday while departing for Michigan.THE FACTS: There is very little truth in those remarks.The only automaker announcing plans to reopen a plant in Michigan is Fiat Chrysler, which is restarting an old engine plant to build three-row SUVs. It’s been planning to do so since before Trump was elected. GM is even closing two Detroit-area factories: one that builds cars and another that builds transmissions.Automakers have made announcements about new models being built in the state, but no other factories have been reopened. Ford stopped building the Focus compact car in the Detroit suburb of Wayne last year, but it’s being replaced by the manufacture of a small pickup and a new SUV. That announcement was made in December 2016, before Trump took office.GM, meantime, is closing factories in Ohio and Maryland.Trump can plausibly claim that his policies have encouraged some activity in the domestic auto industry. Corporate tax cuts freed more money for investment, and potential tariff increases on imported vehicles are an incentive to build in the USBut automakers have not been “pouring in” at all, as he persistently claims, and when expansion does happen, it’s not all because of him.Fiat Chrysler has been planning the SUVs for several years and has been looking at expansion in the Detroit area, where it has unused building space and an abundant, trainable automotive labor force.Normally it takes at least three years for an automaker to plan a new vehicle, which is the case with the three-row Jeep Grand Cherokee and the larger Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs that will fill the restarting Detroit-area plant and an existing one. Several years ago then-CEO Sergio Marchionne said the Wagoneer would be built in the Detroit area.Detroit automakers usually build larger vehicles in the US because the profit margins are high enough to cover the higher wages paid there versus Mexico or another lower-cost country.ImmigrationTRUMP, on diversity visas: “They are giving us their worst people.” — Michigan rally.THE FACTS: That’s false.The diversity visa lottery program is run by the US government, not foreign governments. Other countries do not get to sort through their populations looking for bad apples to put in for export to the US Citizens of qualifying countries are the ones who decide to bid for visas under the program. Trump routinely blames foreign states.The program requires applicants to have completed a high school education or have at least two years of experience in the last five years in a selection of fields. Out of that pool of people from certain countries who meet those conditions, the State Department randomly selects a much smaller pool of winners. Not all winners will have visas ultimately approved, because they still must compete for a smaller number of slots by getting their applications in quickly. Those who are ultimately offered visas still need to go through background checks, like other immigrants.The lottery is extended to citizens of most countries, except about 20. The primary goal is to diversify the immigrant population by creating slots for underrepresented parts of the world.JobsTRUMP: “We have created, since my election, 5.5 million new jobs. Nobody would have believed that was possible.” — Michigan rally.THE FACTS: His number is about right, but he’s counting jobs created before he became president. And the progress does not defy belief. The economy created about 6 million jobs in the roughly two years before the election, then again in the roughly two years after.VETERANSTRUMP: “They’ve been trying to get VA Choice for over 40 years. Couldn’t do it. I got it. We signed it six months ago.” — Michigan rally.THE FACTS: Not true. He’s not the first president in 40 years to get Congress to pass a private-sector health program for veterans; he expanded it. Congress first approved the program in 2014 during the Obama administration. The program currently allows veterans to see doctors outside the VA system if they must wait more than 30 days for an appointment or drive more than 40 miles (65 kilometers) to a VA facility.Now, starting in June, they are to have that option for a private doctor if their VA wait is only 20 days (28 for specialty care) or their drive is only 30 minutes.TRUMP: “Instead of waiting online for one day, one week, two months …now they go outside, they see a private doctor, we pay the bill, they get better quickly.” — Michigan rally.THE FACTS: Also not right. Veterans still must wait for weeks before they can get private care outside the VA system.And the expanded Choice eligibility may do little to provide immediate help. That’s because veterans often must wait even longer for an appointment in the private sector. Last year, then-Secretary David Shulkin said VA care is “often 40 percent better in terms of wait times” compared with the private sector. In 2018, 34 percent of all VA appointments were with outside physicians, down from 36 percent in 2017.At a hearing Tuesday, the top health official at VA, Dr. Richard Stone, described the start of the expanded Choice program to “almost be a non-event,” in part because wait times in the private sector are typically longer than at VA.The VA also must resolve long-term financing because of congressional budget caps after the White House opposed new money to pay for the program. As a result, lawmakers could be forced later this year to limit the program or slash core VA or other domestic programs.

(June 3, 2019) – For the third time iin school history, the University of Louisville men’s golf team will have a player compete in the Arnold Palmer Cup – a three-day Ryder Cup-style event featuring the world’s top men’s and women’s college golfers on Friday-Sunday, June 7-9 from The Alotian Club in Roland, Ark.Sophomore Matthias Schmid will represent the international team, becoming the third player to play in the event. The native of Germany is one of the top players in the country, posting a school record 70.55 stroke average this year and was instrumental in leading the Cardinals to their fourth NCAA championship appearance.Playing in 13 events, Schmid has finished in the top in the top five on seven occasions and produced 10 top-10 finishes. Supported by Rolex, live-streaming coverage on GOLFChannel.com will include the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as profiles of the competitors in one of college golf’s most prestigious events. Whit Watson and Jane Crafter will be in the broadcast booth for live tournament coverage, joined by Dave Marr III on the course Friday through Sunday. The native of Maxvette, Germany posted a second-place standing at the NCAA Louisville Regional, including a school-best 66 in the first round. He owns one of the three individual wins over the course of the season. Schmid dominated the field at the Old Town Club Collegiate on Sept. 24-25, firing an 18-under-par 192 to earn his first career win. The 23rd annual Arnold Palmer Cup sees the best U.S. and international collegiate golfers competing on co-ed teams over three days at venues that alternate between domestic (U.S.) and international sites each year. Co-ed since the 2018 event at Evian Resort Golf Club in France, the Arnold Palmer Cup is one of the game’s only events in which men and women compete side-by-side as partners.

DOI: 10.1002/adma.201405438 Journal information: Advanced Materials As part of an effort to better understand the properties of liquid metals, the researchers were working with gallium—after adding a little bit of indium and tin they discovered that if a bit of aluminum was affixed to a single drop of the alloy (to serve as fuel) and the result was dropped into a container of sodium hydroxide (or even salt water) the drop would propel itself around the container for approximately one hour. In subsequent tests they found that if the container was shaped with channels, the drop could be made to follow a pre-designated path. What’s more, they noted that if the drop encountered a part of the channel that was slimmer than it was, it could squeeze through.Surprised by the movement of the drop, the researchers took a closer look—analysis revealed that when the drop was placed in the solution, a charge imbalance occurred between the front and back of the drop, causing a pressure differential. They also found that as the aluminum reacted with the saltwater, tiny bubbles were formed which also served to push the drop forward (so long as the aluminum bit was on the back end.)The experiments by the team build on prior work by them and others (as part of an effort to make “soft” robots) that showed that with some liquid metals, an electric charge can cause both an expansion and change of shape to a drop. The researchers note that if both techniques were used, the result could be drops that not only move themselves through liquids, but change shape according to predetermined needs. They suggest their findings could conceivably pave the way for drops that are used to deliver materials via pipes or even through blood vessels.

DOI: 10.1002/adma.201405438 Interestingly, the researchers also noted that if the drop were forced to remain in place in the solution it would cause the liquid around it to move, in essence serving as a pump.

In this new effort, the research pair believes they have uncovered another geological clue that might help predict future quakes.Recognizing that earthquakes generate powerful seismic waves that travel through underground rock, the researchers wondered if it might be possible to figure out if and where such seismic waves cause underground damage that could cause another area to be more susceptible to a quake. They focused their attention on Nicoya Peninsula, which is located on the Pacifica coast of Costa Rica, for two reasons. The first was because the area experienced a major earthquake just three years ago; the other was because seismic wave speed tests had been conducted in the area before the quake struck. They ran similar speed tests after the quake to see if there might be any difference—if so, this would suggest that damage had occurred to the rock, causing breaks, which would slow the speed of seismic waves passing through. And if that were the case, it would suggest that the rock in that location was weaker than it had been, and thus the area would be more likely to experience a quake of its own.In conducting seismic tests in the area, the research pair found places where the waves traveled approximately 0.6 percent slower after the big quake, than they had before it occurred. Their finding also added credence to a theory that suggests that fluids underground can make rock more susceptible to fracturing when a nearby earthquake occurs. Prior research had shown that there was highly pressurized fluid under the peninsula, which the new researchers propose, contributed to fracturing and slowed seismic wave speed. The researchers suggest this means that an earthquake is likely to happen sooner in those areas than it would have prior to the impact of the 2012 earthquake. This document is subject to copyright.

Monitoring transient changes within overpressured regions of subduction zones using ambient seismic noise, Science Advances (2016). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1501289AbstractIn subduction zones, elevated pore fluid pressure, generally linked to metamorphic dehydration reactions, has a profound influence on the mechanical behavior of the plate interface and forearc crust through its control on effective stress. We use seismic noise–based monitoring to characterize seismic velocity variations following the 2012 Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica earthquake [Mw (moment magnitude) 7.6] that we attribute to the presence of pressurized pore fluids. Our study reveals a strong velocity reduction (~0.6%) in a region where previous work identified high forearc pore fluid pressure. The depth of this velocity reduction is constrained to be below 5 km and therefore not the result of near-surface damage due to strong ground motions; rather, we posit that it is caused by fracturing of the fluid-pressurized weakened crust due to dynamic stresses. Although pressurized fluids have been implicated in causing coseismic velocity reductions beneath the Japanese volcanic arc, this is the first report of a similar phenomenon in a subduction zone setting. It demonstrates the potential to identify pressurized fluids in subduction zones using temporal variations of seismic velocity inferred from ambient seismic noise correlations. (Phys.org)—A pair or researchers, both with the University of California, Santa Cruz has found via field study that seismic waves passing through rock can be slowed down due to cracking by an earthquake.
