Mane credits teamwork for Liverpool win

first_imgSadio Mane says Liverpool’s 4-1 victory against Cardiff City at Anfield is due to the rest of the team playing so well and not just the attacking trio.Mane grabbed a brace in the Premier League clash after Salah opened the scoring. Together with Roberto Firmino, the trio has scored 18 goals in all competitions so far this season.But Mane believes the whole team deserves credit for their latest win, given how the game panned out.“Hopefully we’re going to keep going like that! It’s something that comes naturally because Mo and Bobby are great players and of course I’m happy to play alongside them,” Mane told Liverpoolfc.com.“But people always talk about the front three – but it’s the team, the work starts behind us. They make it easier, we are lucky boys and score all the time but all the team did their job.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“I’m happy, we played very well even though it was a little bit tight in the second half after it went to 2-1″ Mane added.“It’s part of football. But after that, we controlled the game and created many chances. At the end, we scored four goals so I think we deserved to win.“The coach said yesterday it would be a very tough game. It’s normal, it’s the Premier League.“We knew it would not be easy but we are Liverpool, we were at home and we always try to play the same passing game, try to do our best and win the games.”last_img read more

Soldotna Approves Moving Council Meetings To Thursdays

first_imgThe council voted unanimously to move the meetings to Thursday with support from the city administration. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Soldotna City Council approved a resolution at their meeting on Wednesday that will move the regular meeting days and times for the council to the second and fourth Thursday of each month. Cashman: “we all live here due to our quality of life and wonderful community events. Some of the largest community events happen on Wednesday’s during our meeting hours.” City Manager Stephanie Queen: “In terms of our behind the scenes process shifting it one day or the other wouldn’t cause any concerns on our end about meeting deadlines and keeping the process of what we are already doing.”  Councilmember Tim Cashman introduced the ordinance originally with the intent to move the meetings to Tuesday, but due to scheduling conflicts among councilmembers, Thursday was proposed: “It might be a really great way for us to enjoy our community a whole lot better, and see the people that are out there. That’s what really spurred that.”  The resolution becomes effective on July 1. During the summer months the City of Soldotna puts on their weekly Music in the Park events on Wednesday evenings which coincide with the current time of the council meetings.last_img read more

Developer Suspends Maryland Wind Project that Posed Risk to Pax River

first_imgThe developer of a proposed wind farm on Maryland’s Eastern Shore said it was placing the project in “indefinite suspension” after it could not overcome concerns by the state’s congressional delegation that the project would interfere with a radar system at Naval Air Station Patuxent River.The Great Bay Wind project, located across the Chesapeake Bay from the air station, had survived a move last year by Maryland lawmakers to delay its construction until MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory could evaluate ways to mitigate the turbines’ impact on the radar system after then- Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) vetoed the bill.In response, however, Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) — who was chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee — added language to the committee report of the fiscal 2015 defense spending bill barring the Navy from reaching a deal with Pioneer Green Energy to turn off the turbines during radar testing at Pax River until MIT completes its study. The study is scheduled to be finished by the end of the year.Adam Cohen, vice president of the developer, cited the provision inserted by Mikulski in a March 20 letter informing Somerset County that Pioneer would not be requesting a permit for the project’s construction “at the current time or in the foreseeable future.”  The Mikulski language “placed the entire Great Bay Wind investment and business into a state of uncertainty,” Cohen said.The Pentagon placed another hurdle in front of the project in October when it formally objected to the wind farm because of its potential to interfere with the stealth radar system at Pax River.Advocates of the air station applauded the news of Pioneer’s decision, reported the Maryland Gazette.It’s a “big win for St. Mary’s and another job creation opportunity for the Eastern Shore,” St. Mary’s County Commissioner Tom Jarboe (R) said in reference to a plan by a Pioneer affiliate to develop an unrelated solar project in Somerset County.

A homebrew observatory detects exoplanet

first_img More information: IEEE Spectrum, spectrum.ieee.org/geek-life/ha … y-exoplanet-detector Credit: David Schneider © 2014 Phys.org So go the events leading up to Schneider’s recent DIY video, which shows him successfully star-tracking with a telephoto lens and barndoor tracker—otherwise known as two pieces of plywood hinged together. Without the aid of a high powered telescope, then, “You yourself can detect an extrasolar planet, and I’m gonna show you how,” he tells viewers, showing a little telephoto lens. He holds up two pumpkins, one smaller than the other. “If you’re very lucky, the planet, as it orbits its star, will come directly in front of the star, as viewed from earth—in which case, the amount of light coming from that star diminishes, very briefly as the planet passes in front of it. But that signal could be big enough for you to detect with a DSLR camera. The lens that comes with your camera probably isn’t going to do it.” Instead, he said, you can inexpensively purchase a 300-millimeter Nikon telephoto lens, along with a Nikon-to-Canon adapter. For next steps, cost-conscious Schneider looked for DIY alternatives to an expensive tracker and went for two pieces of plywood, which he referred to as his barndoor tracker. To drive the tracker, he pulled gears out of a defunct inkjet printer, added an Arduino microprocessor, wooden platform and ball head to orient the camera in any direction. He said he used software that came with his camera, allowing adjustments to camera settings, taking shots, recording images directly to a computer and programming a sequence of timed exposures.Schneider’s goal? “A gas giant that belongs to a binary star system variously named HD 189733, HIP 98505, or V452 Vulpeculae, depending on the star catalog.” (His article in IEEE Spectrum noted that, 63 light-years away, HD 189733 is too dim to be seen with the naked eye. Finding it required the use of such waypoints as the Dumbbell Nebula.) He used Iris software to perform corrections needed to calculate the brightness of HD 189733 as well as four reference stars. “So,” he concluded “it seems my home-brew observatory did detect an exoplanet—using little more than run-of-the-mill DSLR and a $92 eBay camera lens.” David Schneider, a senior editor at IEEE Spectrum, was interested in exoplanets, planets that orbit stars other than the sun, but figured this kind of exercise as a home-based project was going to need expensive telescopes; he stumbled across a project at Ohio State University, where resourceful astronomers had figured out a way to spot exoplanets using a device with a lens designed for high-end cameras. Schneider’s wheels turned, thinking he might also be able to pull this off if he got his hands on a charge-coupled-device detector not research-grade, and maybe he could forget about an expensive telescope as well? He also discovered an online posting by an amateur astronomer saying he had detected a known exoplanet using a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera with a telephoto lens.

I do not favor punishing children most of whom are now adults for the actions of their parents But we must also recognize that we are nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws The legislative branch not the executive branch writes these laws this is the bedrock of our Constitutional system which I took a solemn oath to preserve protect and defend In June of 2012 President Obama bypassed Congress to give work permits social security numbers and federal benefits to approximately 800000 illegal immigrants currently between the ages of 15 and 36 The typical recipients of this executive amnesty known as DACA are in their twenties Legislation offering these same benefits had been introduced in Congress on numerous occasions and rejected each time In referencing the idea of creating new immigration rules unilaterally President Obama admitted that "I cant just do these things by myself" and yet that is exactly what he did making an end-run around Congress and violating the core tenets that sustain our Republic Officials from 10 States are suing over the program requiring my Administration to make a decision regarding its legality The Attorney General of the United States the Attorneys General of many states and virtually all other top legal experts have advised that the program is unlawful and unconstitutional and cannot be successfully defended in court There can be no path to principled immigration reform if the executive branch is able to rewrite or nullify federal laws at will The temporary implementation of DACA by the Obama Administration after Congress repeatedly rejected this amnesty-first approach also helped spur a humanitarian crisis the massive surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America including in some cases young people who would become members of violent gangs throughout our country such as MS-13 Only by the reliable enforcement of immigration law can we produce safe communities a robust middle class and economic fairness for all Americans Therefore in the best interests of our country and in keeping with the obligations of my office the Department of Homeland Security will begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA one that provides minimum disruption While new applications for work permits will not be accepted all existing work permits will be honored until their date of expiration up to two full years from today Furthermore applications already in the pipeline will be processed as will renewal applications for those facing near-term expiration This is a gradual process not a sudden phase out Permits will not begin to expire for another six months and will remain active for up to 24 months Thus in effect I am not going to just cut DACA off but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act Our enforcement priorities remain unchanged We are focused on criminals security threats recent border-crossers visa overstays and repeat violators I have advised the Department of Homeland Security that DACA recipients are not enforcement priorities unless they are criminals are involved in criminal activity or are members of a gang The decades-long failure of Washington DC to enforce federal immigration law has had both predictable and tragic consequences: lower wages and higher unemployment for American workers substantial burdens on local schools and hospitals the illicit entry of dangerous drugs and criminal cartels and many billions of dollars a year in costs paid for by US taxpayers Yet few in Washington expressed any compassion for the millions of Americans victimized by this unfair system Before we ask what is fair to illegal immigrants we must also ask what is fair to American families students taxpayers and jobseekers Congress now has the opportunity to advance responsible immigration reform that puts American jobs and American security first We are facing the symptom of a larger problem illegal immigration along with the many other chronic immigration problems Washington has left unsolved We must reform our green card system which now favors low-skilled immigration and puts immense strain on US taxpayers We must base future immigration on merit we want those coming into the country to be able to support themselves financially to contribute to our economy and to love our country and the values it stands for Under a merit-based system citizens will enjoy higher employment rising wages and a stronger middle class Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue have introduced the RAISE Act which would establish this merit-based system and produce lasting gains for the American People I look forward to working with Republicans and Democrats in Congress to finally address all of these issues in a manner that puts the hardworking citizens of our country first As Ive said before we will resolve the DACA issue with heart and compassion but through the lawful Democratic process while at the same time ensuring that any immigration reform we adopt provides enduring benefits for the American citizens we were elected to serve We must also have heart and compassion for unemployed struggling and forgotten Americans Above all else we must remember that young Americans have dreams too Being in government means setting priorities Our first and highest priority in advancing immigration reform must be to improve jobs wages and security for American workers and their families It is now time for Congress to act Write to Kate Samuelson at katesamuelson@timecomOf the two names recommended by the Supreme Court collegium for elevation to the apex court only one has been accepted by the Centre which has paved the way for a fresh controversy as several leaders across the political spectrum criticising the move The Congress questioned the NDA government’s motives behind the decision while the CPM demanded President Ram Nath Kovind’s intervention ‘Revenge politics’ The Congress termed the central government asking the Supreme Court collegium to reconsider its recommendation for elevation of Justice KM Joseph to the apex court as "revenge politics" and accused the government of "appointing judges only of their own choice" Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Congress leader Kapil Sibal PTI and Reuters The party also said the the independence of judiciary is in "danger" and if it does not protect its autonomy in one voice "democracy will be in danger" The government rejected the Supreme Court’s recommendation of Joseph’s elevation citing various reasons including seniority But it cleared the name of senior advocate Indu Malhotra who took oath on Friday as a judge of the Supreme Court Josephis 42nd in the seniority list among 669 high court judges Citing the Supreme Court collegium’s view that Joseph currently Chief Justice of Uttarakhand High Court was "more deserving and suitable in all respects" than other chief justices and senior judges of high courts senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that it seemed that the "government thinks he is not deserving" "The Supreme Court’s own website said this Four months have passed; on Thursday we got to know that government has returned the file and said more discussion is required on it The central government wants those judges who only the government has approval over" Sibal said "The law says what collegium recommends only they will be appointed The government wants to ignore the collegium’s recommendations If it is not of their choice they will not appoint him" he said Congress’ communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modion Twitter PM Modi’s ‘revenge politics’ qua judiciary & ‘conspiratorial suffocation’ of Supreme Court exposed again J Joseph is India’s Sr most CJ Yet Modi Govt refuses to clear his elevation to SC as retribution for quashing presidential rule in Uttrakhand 1/2https://tco/wbwaedSP8o — Randeep Singh Surjewala (@rssurjewala) April 26 2018 In another tweet he said "In June 2014 they refused to clear noted jurist G Subramaniam’s name for elevation to Supreme Court as he was a lawyer against Amit Shah and Co" A bench headed by Joseph in 2016 had quashed the imposition of President’s Rule in the state and had revived the Congress government headed by Harish Rawat In a series of tweets Congress leader and former finance ministerP Chidambaram asked if Modi government was "above the law" "Delighted that Indu Malhotra will be sworn in as Judge of the Supreme Court on Friday Disappointed that Joseph’s appointment is still on hold" Chidambaram who is also a senior advocate said "What is holding up Joseph’s appointment His state or his religion or his judgement in the Uttarakhand case" he asked in another tweet What is holding up Justice K M Joseph’s

process of a judge and will affect the independence of the judiciary "The President of India must immediately intervene to ensure that the laid-out procedure is followed and the appointment of Joseph is cleared " the CPM said JD(U) accuses govt of ‘interfering in judiciary’ JD(U) leader and former Rajya Sabha member Sharad Yadav said the government was "interfering" in the judiciary "It is a very serious matter and I will request the apex court judges to come forward and ensure that the people’s faith in the judiciary remains intact" he said "This (the issue of Justice Joseph’s elevation to the Supreme Court) shows that the government is interfering in the (matters of the) judiciary and all constitutional institutions in a big way" the veteran leader told reporters in New Delhi BJP stands by Centre’s decision Amid all the controversy however Union home minister Rajnath Singh said all political parties must ensure that the dignity of constitutional institutions like the courts

constitutional institutions remains intact This is necessary for a healthy democracy" he told reporters in Gandhinagar A regular petitioner in the apex court BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said the Congress stand on the issue reflected its frustration Malhotra will be the first woman judge to be appointed to the top post directly from the bar Swamy said on the issue of delay in Joseph’s
