Argentina national team snub should motivate Dybala – Allegri

first_imgJuventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri was chosen Seria A’s best coach for the 2016/17 season over Atalanta’s Gian Piero Gasperini and Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri. He shared his gratitude towards his players and had some choice words on Paulo Dybala.The fact that he was not called upon for the next Argentina friendlies has been a huge upset for everybody in Juve and mostly for Dybala himself, as he has been in an extraordinary shape lately and there is no obvious reason for the national coach to snub him.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Not being called up by Argentina [for friendlies] should motivate him even more because he’s still got every opportunity of earning a place at the World Cup,” Allegri shared, according to ESPN.“He’s got to be focused on this end of the season and we have all got to be ambitious when we face the best, like Real, as we search for a seventh straight title, which would be an achievement that would be hard for any other club to match.”last_img read more

CES 2019 How connected leafy canopies could fight climate change in our

first_img All the cool new gadgets at CES 2019 Urban landscaping gets smart. Chris Monroe/CNET A windowless Las Vegas ballroom is perhaps the last place you might expect to find upon a leafy bower. But that’s exactly what happened to me at CES 2019 on Sunday.The green and pleasant oasis I encountered amid a sea of plastic and metal electronics was a downsized version of French startup Urban Canopee’s vision for making our cities greener — both in color and in terms of environmental impact.With the threat of climate change and global warming becoming increasingly urgent, more solutions are needed to help reduce temperatures and improve air quality. Trees and plants can help with both of these things, as well assisting with restoring urban biodiversity and improving quality of life. And as our cities become smarter and more connected thanks to the deployment of sensors and 5G, there are even more opportunities to ensure plants and trees are playing their role in the best and most efficient way.Any city dweller knows how dearly-appreciated green spaces in urban environments are, but it’s not always convenient or possible to plant trees in city streets. Urban Canopee wants instead to retrofit cities with plants by growing them over the roofs of buildings or other spaces.Canopies of climbing plants are grown over lightweight, adaptable and flexible frames, which either stand alone or can be placed together in modules to allow the plants to weave together to form a leafy ceiling. Sensors within the frames and the plant pots allow the hydration levels of the plants and the temperature under the canopy to monitored remotely via an app. A solar kit and an intelligent, connected irrigation system operate autonomously to water the plants.Urban Canopee currently has a test project underway in the French city of Toulouse, and two patents pending for the technology. The long-term goal is to make cities more resilient against climate change as well as allowing them to meet new green regulations and support the wider fight against climate change. 85 Photos CES Products CES 2019: Every story so far: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.

NASA rover Curiosity fulfills dream drills into Mars clay

first_img Comments NASA Mars rover Curiosity spots peculiar pebbles NASA: ‘Cannonball’ spotted on Mars isn’t what it seems 2 Enlarge ImageThe Curiosity rover drilled into this clay-bearing unit on Mars. NASA/JPL-Caltech The Curiosity rover is living its best life on Mars. NASA chose the Gale Crater as the vehicle’s stomping ground in part because of the siren call of the crater’s “clay-bearing unit.” The rover has now finally drilled into that area, nearly seven years after landing on the red planet.”Don’t let your dreams be dreams,” the rover team tweeted. “I finally got beneath the surface of those clays. Science to come.” “Certain minerals, including some Curiosity may find in the clay and sulfate-rich layers near the bottom of Gale’s mountain, are good at latching onto organic compounds and protecting them from oxidation,” NASA said at the time. Curiosity now finally has its chance for a closer look. This is a time of great excitement for scientists and Mars fans alike. Curiosity has weathered technical glitches and damaged wheels to get here. This new chapter, carved into clay, is just beginning.  “This is a moment that the mission has been waiting for since Gale Crater was chosen as our landing site,” wrote Curiosity team member Scott Guzewich in a mission update. The bedrock target is nicknamed “Aberlady.” Curiosity will investigate the drill hole and composition of the rock powder as it seeks to learn more about this region of Mars. When NASA announced in 2011 that Gale Crater would be Curiosity’s home away from home, the space agency highlighted the likely history of water in the region and how it plays into the search for signs of organic compounds.

Moudud calls budget big hollow balloon

first_imgMoudud AhmedBNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Friday termed the proposed national budget for 2018-19 fiscal year a ‘big blue empty balloon’ which is formulated keeping the next general election in mind, news agency UNB reports.”It’s a big beautiful blue balloon which is totally empty,” the Bangladesh Nationalist Party leader said while speaking at a discussion arranged by Bangladesh Youth Forum at the National Press Club.Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, said the budget will not help ensure people’s welfare as it was made only considering the next general election.Describing the government as ‘unelected, corrupt and incompetent’, he said it will not be able to implement such a big budget.The BNP leader also said inequality will widen in the country by this budget.Moudud said there is no directive in the budget to change the fate of 3o million unemployed people and the ultra poor.Meanwhile, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi termed the budget an ‘anti-people’ one.Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, he said there is nothing in the budget except fraudulence and a scope for ruling party men to make their pockets heavier ahead of the next general election. “BNP is fully turning down the budget,” said Rizvi.He feared that the middle class will be put in trouble while the prices of all essential will go up if this budget is passed.last_img read more

The UKs Office of Fair Trading OFT has referred

first_imgThe UK’s Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has referred Ericsson’s buyout of Red Bee Media to the Competition Commission over fears that the deal could drive up the cost of playout services in the UK. In a statement, the UK’s consumer and competition authority said that it was concerned that the deal “might lead to an increase in prices or a worsening of service levels in the supply of linear playout services in the UK.”The OFT, non-ministerial government department, said that a number of broadcasters and competitors have also complained about the merger and “the loss of choice it entails.”Though a minority of broadcasters provide playout services themselves, the OFT added that it did not consider the threat of taking these back in-house would stem price rises in the short and medium term.“Not only is there the possibility of price rises as a result of the merger, there is a risk the most complex channels will suffer a reduction in quality in their service levels. We are therefore referring the anticipated merger to the Competition Commission for an in-depth investigation,” said OFT chief executive Clive Maxwell.Ericsson agreed to buy UK-based TV technology and media services company Red Bee Media from Macquarie Advanced Investment Partners in July. The move will see it further strengthen its broadcast services business, which it started in 2007 and expanded in 2012 with the acquisition of Technicolor’s Broadcast Services Division.The deal, which is expected to close later this year if it meets regulatory approval, will give Ericsson an additional 1,500 employees, as well as media services and operations facilities in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Australia.Linear playout services ensure that television programmes, advertising, and other television content are lined up and ready for broadcast, according to the programme schedule. Playout service providers also manage the fluctuations around the schedule according to the broadcaster’s wishes, for example in reaction to live sports.last_img read more
