Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“No manager can have the right answer to it because you prepare the same way, go through all of the details, you build your own team, choose your game plan and decide how to play. And then there’s a game and an opponent, who have their own ideas.”“So there is conflict that exists in a game after which you cannot say what we should change.”“We’ve won games with less of the ball and lost games with more of the ball and more shots on goal.

Game of Thrones Jorah Mormont to play Bruce Wayne on Titans

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening.

Quantum levitating locking video goes viral

first_imgMost of the web sites out there seem stumped as to how these guys pulled off this little trick. Fortunately, the researchers explain it in detail. And even more fortunately, it’s not that hard to understand.First a thin sapphire wafer is created. It is then coated with a very thin ceramic layer of yttrium barium copper oxide which becomes a superconductor (materials that conduct electricity with no loss of energy) at very cold temperatures. The result is a frozen disc. When it is placed over a magnet, the superconductor material and magnet repel one another due to the Meissner effect (the expulsion of the magnetic field from a material when it goes into a superconducting state). But, because the layer of superconducting material is so thin, some of the magnetic force is allowed through at certain particularly weak points. These paths through are called flux tubes, and they are the real secret to the whole trick. Because there are many of them they cause a three dimensional holding or locking effect, which is what viewers see when watching the video.Upon viewing the video, a lot of commentators refer to the scene in Back to the Future 2 when Mary McFly rides a hoverboard for a few minutes. Unfortunately, the science demonstrated in this latest video holds no hope for that; not unless someone figures out how to keep such boards frozen indefinitely (and embeds magnets everywhere) or better yet, figures out a way to make a superconductor that works at room temperature. This is nothing new of course, everyone’s seen it in science class. What is new is that when the demonstrator turns the disc, it stays hovered at that angle. This is in contrast to the wobbling we’re used to in such demonstrations. Next, the disc is set over a different surface where it is made to spin. But that’s only the beginning. The disc is then set on a track where it zips around in midair. And again, it can be made to do so at whatever angle is desired. Then, the track is turned upside down and the disc hovers below it, again zipping around. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Explore further Superconducting magnet generates world’s highest magnetic field at 24Tcenter_img (PhysOrg.com) — A video created by researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel has the Internet buzzing. Though rather simple, it just looks really cool, hence all the attention. It’s a demonstration of quantum locking, though to non-science buffs, it looks more like science fiction come to life. In the video a disc, obviously frozen due to the vapor rising from its surface hovers over a surface.

CM confers Banga Bibhushan award to Asha Bhosle

We can never forget her contribution,” Banerjee said at the event.Expressing immense happiness over the facelift that the City of Joy has undergone in relation to the development work carried out by the Mamata Banerjee government over the past seven years, the noted playback singer said: “I came to Kolkata and found the city to be too beautiful.

But we couldn’t bring her due to her age.” She added that her government is always ready to confer the award on her whenever she is fit to collect it.

Elocutionist Partha Ghosh, singers Arundhati Hom Choudhury and Sreedhara Bandyopadhyay were recipients of the Banga Bhushan award. The Chief Minister also announced that the Banga Bibhushan will be given to Birju Maharaj. The top brass of the state government will be visiting his house to hand over the award.Earlier in the day, Banerjee had tweeted: “Today is World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development.

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group SIG has ann

first_imgThe Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has announced that Bluetooth 5 will launch either in late 2016 or early 2017 and will include “significantly increased range, speed, and broadcast messaging capacity.”The SIG said that the extending range in Bluetooth 5 will deliver robust and reliable Internet of Things (IoT) connections that will make “full-home and building, and outdoor use-cases a reality”.It claimed that higher speeds will send data faster and optimise responsiveness, while increasing broadcast capacity will boost the next generation of ‘connectionless’ services like beacons and location-relevant information and navigation.“Bluetooth 5 will transform the way people experience the IoT by making it something that happens simply and seamlessly around them,” said Mark Powell, executive director of the BluetoothSIG.“Increasing operation range will enable connections to IoT devices that extend far beyond the walls of a typical home, while increasing speed supports faster data transfers and software updates for devices.”The SIG now has 30,000 members, with membership up 11% since the end of 2015. The group estimates there are 8.2 billion Bluetooth products in use today and that Bluetooth will be in more than one-third of all installed IoT devices by 2020.last_img read more
