10 months agoLiverpool legend Aldridge dismisses Guardiola Man City claims

first_imgLiverpool legend Aldridge dismisses Guardiola Man City claimsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend John Aldridge has dismissed the claims of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola ahead of Thursday’s clash.Guardiola has declared anything but a victory will end their title defence.Aldridge told the Irish Independent: “Are Liverpool title favourites? Maybe we can say they will move into that position if they get a win against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium next Thursday, but I still feel there will be a lot of twists and turns in this title story,” says Aldridge.”None of us saw these slips from Manchester City coming and it means Liverpool will head into the crunch game against them on Thursday night in an unexpectedly dominant position.”A draw in that game would ensure Klopp’s side still have a solid lead at the top of the table, while a victory would yield the pressure on a City side that have struggled to cope in the absence of Fernandinho and David Silva in recent weeks.”There is no doubt that Liverpool are in a great position, but this is only the half way point in the season and there is a long way to go, a lot of points to play for.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

GM Canada proposing first of its kind renewable energy project at Ontario

first_imgOSHAWA, Ont. – General Motors of Canada is proposing to build a renewable energy project at its St. Catharines Propulsion Plant in Ontario, a first of its kind endeavour for the automaker which it estimates will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 77 per cent from the facility.The project proposes to build a 6.4 megawatt co-generation plant that will use renewable landfill gas as fuel to generate electricity and recover thermal energy to power and heat the St. Catharines plant, which manufactures V6 and V8 engines and GF6 transmissions.GM Canada says that in addition to significantly reducing net greenhouse gas emissions the proposed project will also lower energy electrical costs, improving the facility’s long-term competitiveness.The automaker says once the project is online in mid-2019, clean energy will power approximately 32 per cent of the St. Catharines plant — the most of any of GM’s global population operations worldwide.It says the project is a partnership with Alectra Utilities, Integrated Gas Recovery Services and the TargetGHG program funded by the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science.last_img read more

After ASAT test concern over space debris

first_imgNew Delhi: After the successful anti-satellite missile test by India, concerns are being raised from some quarters, including the United States and the UN Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), over creation of space debris.The United States on Thursday said it will continue to pursue its shared interests with India in space and technical cooperation, but expressed concern over the issue of space debris. “The issue of space debris is an important concern for the US government. We took note of Indian government statements that the test was designed to address space debris issues,” a State Department spokesperson said. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’After the missile test on Wednesday, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) here had sought to assuage such concerns stating that the test was done in the lower atmosphere to ensure there is no space debris. Incidentally, the United States was the first country to test ASAT. In September 1959, a High Virgo missile was launched by the US from B-58 aircraft targeting an Explorer satellite. However, it was unsuccessful, according to a paper presented by Anatoly Zak at the UNIDIR. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KA month later, a Bold Orion missile launched from a B-47 aircraft at an 11-kilometer altitude passed within four kilometers from the Explorer-6 satellite at an altitude of 251 kilometres. Further as latest as 2008, during Operation Burnt Frost, the US destroyed its own satellite, USA-193, with an SM-3 interceptor creating 174 pieces of trackable debris, plus non-trackable shards. In 2007, China destroyed its FengYun 1C weather satellite with an SC-19 missile, leaving behind space debris consisting of 3,280 pieces of trackable debris, as well as up to 32,000 pieces that are non-trackable. The UNIDIR too raised concern over the space debris. “Testing anti-satellite weapons in space can create damaging debris. Guidelines on testing these systems can prevent collateral damage and the escalation of tensions in outer space,” the UNIDIR tweeted with a video on the subject. Matthias Maurer, a European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut, said shooting down a satellite and voluntarily creating space debris is not a sign of being a responsible space power. “Shooting down a satellite to prove you’re a space power only shows that you’re not. No responsible space power contributes to creating voluntarily space debris! Space belongs to all mankind. Let’s use it for peaceful purposes and for the benefit of the people. @esa @dlr,” Maurer tweeted. On Wednesday, Daniel Porras, Space Security Fellow, UNIDIR, said conducting the tests at an altitude of 300 km does not augur well for satellites in the Low Earth Orbit . “It was not a good sign for LEO (low earth orbit)… which has telecommunication and earth observation satellites and also the International Space Station,” which cruises at a height of 400 km, he said. “The test was done at 300 km, so pretty low, meaning most of the debris will slowly come down. However, lots of objects near that altitude…. Not a good sign for all those LEO constellations. Also, if any debris damages other objects, India will be liable under the Liability Convention (if attribution is established),” Porras had tweeted. The MEA, in Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) released on Wednesday, said “whatever debris that is generated will decay and fall back onto the earth within weeks”.last_img read more

S Koreans shun Japanese beer travel cars as disputes grow

BUNDANG, Korea, Republic Of — A widespread anti-Japanese boycott is gaining ground in South Korea since Tokyo tightened its exports of materials used to manufacture semiconductors and display screens, key export items for South Korea.The boycott could worsen as Japan is expected to expand its trade curbs to other items as early as Friday by removing South Korea from a list of countries granted preferential trade status. In the meantime, South Koreans spoke of cancelling travel to Japan while stores removed Japanese beer from their shelves.South Korea accuses Japan of retaliating over local court rulings that ordered two Japanese companies to pay compensation to former Korean employees for forced labour during Tokyo’s 1910-45 colonization of the Korean Peninsula. Japan has denied that, saying its action was taken out of national security concerns.Hyung-Jin Kim, The Associated Press read more

Sourav Ganguly remains an idol 11 years after retirement fans celebrate birthday

first_imgGanguly is currently busy working as a commentator at the ongoing Cricket World Cup in England. Even as a commentator, he has captured a million hearts, and the ‘God of Offside’ is emerging as the ‘God of commentary’ over the last few years. Nirmal NarayananSourav Ganguly, the man who taught the Indian cricket team to dream high, celebrates his 47th birthday on June 08, 2019. Even though he retired from international cricket 11 years back, Sourav continues to be a role model for cricket lovers, and he still boasts of a huge fan following across the nation.Ganguly fans in Kerala celebrated the former Indian skipper’s birthday at Pratheeksha rehabilitation center in Kothamangalam. His fans, under the leadership of Shaukath Ali, an ardent Dada follower, visited the center and spent hours with them following a cake cutting ceremony.”Since my childhood, I have been an ardent fan of Sourav Ganguly. Even after his retirement, I continue as a Dada fan and will be the same forever. As you all know, once a Gangulian, always a Gangulian. There are several factors that made me a fan of Dada. His aggression, determination, and moreover, he is the one who taught the Indian team to chase dreams. He showed to the world that Indian team is capable of anything and everything. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli walked through that broad path created by Dada. I love you SG,” said Shaukath Ali.Fans of the ‘Prince of Kolkata’ also donated an undisclosed sum to the rehabilitation center for their activities. Authorities of the center thanked Shaukath Ali and his team for such a noble act in the name of the former Indian cricketer.Several Malayalam film personalities also conveyed their birthday wishes to the cricket legend. Mollywood Superstar Mohanlal, Action King Suresh Gopi, Unni Mukundan and director Arun Gopy posted birthday wishes to Ganguly on their social media pages.last_img read more

Christopher Wray Confirmed As Next FBI Director

first_img Share Alex Wong/Getty ImagesChristopher Wray is sworn in during the confirmation hearing on his nomination for FBI director before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month.The Senate has easily confirmed Christopher Wray to be the next FBI director, a position he assumes after former Director James Comey was ousted by President Trump in May.The 50-year-old former Justice Department lawyer was approved by a 92-5 vote.Wray was Trump’s choice to lead the FBI after he decided to fire Comey — a controversial decision that led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to take over the bureau’s investigation into Russian interference in last year’s elections and possible collusion between top aides to the Trump campaign and Russia.During his confirmation hearing last month before the Senate Judiciary Committee — which approved him unanimously for the post — Wray stressed his independence from the White House and underscored that he believes the intelligence community’s determination that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential race, even though Trump has at times cast doubt on that assessment.Wray pledged he would “never allow the FBI’s work to be driven by anything other than the facts, the law and the impartial pursuit of justice. Period.” And he added that anyone who thought he would pull any punches as FBI director “sure doesn’t know me very well.”Wray also said he was “very committed to supporting Director Mueller in the special counsel investigation in whatever way is appropriate for me to do that,” and added that any effort to tamper with or influence the investigation would be “unacceptable and inappropriate” and would, in his view, need to be dealt with “very sternly.” Wray also said he had not given anyone “any kind loyalty oath at any point in the process” when he was under consideration for the appointment by the White House.According to NPR’s Carrie Johnson, Wray “has spent years working in and around the U.S. Justice Department, making national security policy and overseeing cases against corrupt business executives. But he’s operated outside the spotlight, by design.”That shunning of the spotlight has earned him praise and led many to conclude he can help steady the agency at a time of upheaval and increased scrutiny. Wray was a former federal prosecutor in Atlanta before joining the George W. Bush Justice Department as it dealt with the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Nintendo Increases SNES Mini Production Brings Back NES Mini

first_imgStay on target Don’t Expect Any More Nintendo Classic Consoles4 New Gadgets You Should’ve Bought in 2017 One of last year’s hottest items was the NES Classic Edition. Unfortunately, only a small number of customers were actually able to purchase one of these miniature systems. If you wanted to buy one of these retro consoles, then we have great news for you. Due to high demand, Nintendo is now promising to re-release the elusive console in the summer of 2018.Today’s press release only says Nintendo is bringing the system back next year, but we still have some questions. Chief among them being, how many units does Nintendo plan to produce? A limited supply will just see a repeat of what happened last year, with folks scrambling to get their hands on a console. It’s also unclear how long the NES Classic will be available for. It’s entirely possible that it will only be available for a few months just like the original run.AdChoices广告Along with this announcement, Nintendo also stated it would have more SNES Classic Edition units available on September 29 of this year. Like the NES mini, the SNES Classic instantly sold out when pre-orders launched. Nintendo promises to produce more of these systems than the NES minis. That’s a smart tactic considering how this system has an arguably stronger lineup of games.Love for Nintendo’s classic systems hasn’t waned over the years so its no surprise that the NES and SNES Classic Editions are so highly sought-after. Nintendo isn’t exactly known for listening to its fans, so it’s good to see the Japanese gaming giant give the folks exactly what they’re asking for by restocking/increasing supply of the diminutive consoles. Perhaps this time, anyone who wants to buy a system won’t have to go through proverbial hoops to get one. Our apologies to anyone who paid ridiculous prices for an NES or SNES Classic Edition on Ebay.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

State Urban Development minister Firhad Hakim termed the transfer of officers as ‘showbazi’ on the part of the Commission. “BJP leaders like Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have been flouting the Model Code of Conduct of the EC taking credit in the name of the Indian Army but the Commission with limited powers is doing nothing.
